"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

  Wed. 2/17/10 7:03am bryan:

John -- thanks for bringing this song into my life on your premium a while back. that whole disc was one of the best premiums ever!
  Wed. 2/17/10 7:11am DJ:

great! i'm glad you liked it. i agree that that track has an emotion that is lacking in all of our lives, it is possibly a feeling that only existed for a few months and maybe one that only a few people shared. like washing off someone else's cocaine after group sex or something
  Wed. 2/17/10 7:15am bryan:

Yeah, that's what I was thinking. Ah, 1975.

I like the way it bleeds from the prior song, "Prose" on the LP, but I'm also glad you separated it from that context. It's a nice surprise.
  Wed. 2/17/10 8:34am Parq:

Walked back into the room in the middle of that Ben Wolcott. Really engrossing. Post some more info on it, please.
