Listener comments!

  Sat. 6/5/10 9:07pm Looms:

Hello Daniel!
Already 3AM here, gosh! I decided to stay here for the weekend and arrange my records library, don't see the time passing by.
  Sat. 6/5/10 9:13pm D. Blumin:

Hi Looms! By here I hope you mean Radioland! How are you arranging the records, if I may ask? Straight-up alphabetical?
  Sat. 6/5/10 9:22pm Looms:

Aaaargh! I'm looking for a relevant tip! let's say that i decided to make "sections": Coil and related, Wyatt and related, Dan Burke and related, Edward Ka-Spel and related, and so on. Then i guess the rest will be alphabetical, but i'm not sure yet. What's your method?
  Sat. 6/5/10 9:28pm D. Blumin:

My method is spending at least 30 minutes looking for the record I want to find since it's all a mess - then I find a record that I was not looking for but that is an exciting find nevertheless!
Sections can get right confusing fast! I say go alpabetical unless there's a better idea out there in internetwerld...
  Sat. 6/5/10 9:35pm Looms:

You know what? I think you're right about sections and i'm desperate: i'm currently trying to decide where to put my Cyberaktif records...
  Sat. 6/5/10 9:38pm Looms:

Someone told me to arrange the library by genre, but i think this method really sucks.
  Sat. 6/5/10 9:44pm D. Blumin:

That person is an enemy of disorder and creative loss! Do not yield, Looms!
  Sat. 6/5/10 9:55pm Looms:

Oh, i asked her what genre Simon Fisher Turner's and Climax Golden Twins' records belong to, she wasn't able to give me an answer. I guess her doubts was the anwser.
Took me about 5 minutes to put the finger on what the Whitebuzz's track you're playing reminds me: Black Sabbath. Is that a cover? I really must be tired...
  Sat. 6/5/10 9:59pm D. Blumin:

Climax Golden Twins belong to the TV sitcom soundtrack genre clearly! Simon Fischer Turner? Ambient hip-hop ragga! Easy!
  Sat. 6/5/10 10:01pm Looms:

Ha ha! You definitely make my day!
  Sat. 6/5/10 10:01pm Charly:

Liking the Whitebuzz Mr Blumin D.
  Sat. 6/5/10 10:17pm Looms:

"Double peine" is a tragic legal issue. It refers to immigrant persons who are being judged and put in jail in France, are deported back to their country where they are arrested and put in jail again. I may be breaking English, but i guess you get the idea.
  Sat. 6/5/10 10:22pm D. Blumin:

Looms, many thanks for the context!
  Sat. 6/5/10 10:25pm Looms:

I have to add they are deported AFTER they made their time in jail, so they pay twice for what they did: "double peine". What a beautiful world!
  Sat. 6/5/10 10:29pm D. Blumin:

Are they deported because of their immigration status or does it depend on the crime?
  Sat. 6/5/10 10:30pm Charly:

  Sat. 6/5/10 10:32pm Charly:

A very cosmopolitan playlist tonight Daniel.
  Sat. 6/5/10 10:34pm D. Blumin:

Stay tuned fer Matmos tickets - playing with So Percussion at Le Poisson Rouge on Wednesday!
  Sat. 6/5/10 10:34pm Alex:

This is an excellent conclusion to a very damp day.
  Sat. 6/5/10 10:35pm Looms:

The painful thing is that they are deported because of their immigration status. Actually, most of these persons stole or did THC drug business.
All the more agreeing with Charly about the playlist. Real good as usual.
  Sat. 6/5/10 10:40pm Didier:

Thanks for that Volluk track, Daniel. I live around those parts, they had completely eluded me thus far.
  Sat. 6/5/10 10:40pm D. Blumin:

Thx, Charly - cosmopolitan you say?
Mais oui, Looms. Dankees...
Thx also to you, Alex!
  Sat. 6/5/10 10:47pm Charly:

Balkan magic :-)
  Sat. 6/5/10 10:50pm Looms:

Nichts zu danken, Daniel. Dein Radiosendung ist prima!
  Sat. 6/5/10 10:56pm Looms:

Okay then, i really need some sleep, The rest of the broadcast will be heard the usual way (may WFMU's archives be blessed 'til the 54's generation).
Have a good one, you all!
  Sat. 6/5/10 10:57pm Charly:

sleep tight looms
  Sat. 6/5/10 11:05pm Charly:

"broomsticks" had me rolling around :-)
  Sat. 6/5/10 11:12pm Doug:

Daniel, what were you just playing behind the break?
  Sat. 6/5/10 11:13pm dan in falls church VA:

well I am using the Flash stream for the first time and its working well and sounds pretty good! "Stop This City" is a pretty cool track, eh?
  Sat. 6/5/10 11:17pm D. Blumin:

Dave that was a mix by Deadbeat feat. Rhythm & Sound, Intrusion, Mikkel Metal and Maurizio... (Deadbeat "Radio Rothko" on the Agriculture)
  Sat. 6/5/10 11:18pm Charly in London:

The web is a wonderful thing.
I'm using a WiFi radio. 10,000 stations worldwide.
WFMU still the best though
  Sat. 6/5/10 11:20pm B. LaBonte:

D, have you heard the rumor that Pete Bassman left the band prior to Recurring b/c Sonic Boom found out that he was a cyborg?
  Sat. 6/5/10 11:29pm D. Blumin:

Wait, LaBonte, I thought Bassman left because he wanted to invent hypnagogic pop with Darkside... Not true?
  Sat. 6/5/10 11:35pm dan in falls church VA:

....these sounds providing really nice break from all this vintage heavy psychy proggy stuff I've been listening to lately (and almost nonstop, ghod only knows what's come over me)

...how do you spell RELIEF? D-A-N-I-E-L....
  Sat. 6/5/10 11:38pm B. LaBonte:

With all of these conflicting rumors flying around, it's key that we don't forget the only unimpeachable truth: Pete Bassman is a cyborg.
  Sat. 6/5/10 11:41pm remarkableerich:

wow! awesome!.... music... with instruments. nice.
  Sat. 6/5/10 11:42pm D. Blumin:

Thx, Dan! If this isn't heavy psychy proggy stuff I don't know what is!
Glad to see yous on board...

B, I think your judgment is clouded by the deaths of Gary Coleman, DeDennis Hopper and Rue McLanahan...
  Sat. 6/5/10 11:42pm fatty jubbo:

this Alvaro Betrand sure sounds a lot like Messiaen's Turangalila
  Sat. 6/5/10 11:43pm remarkableerich:

turangalia symphony!? can you play that?
  Sat. 6/5/10 11:43pm remarkableerich:

ok not all of it...
  Sat. 6/5/10 11:45pm dan in falls church VA:

Daniel, you're right, this IS heavy psychy proggy stuff! I think my discrimination must be mitigated by the Hopper-Coleman-McLanahan triple whammy!
  Sat. 6/5/10 11:46pm B. LaBonte:

If by "deaths" you mean "main CPU system failures," you may be right.
  Sat. 6/5/10 11:46pm muhrvis:

Greetings from Eugene, OR. Damn, I was too busy and missed most of the program...
  Sat. 6/5/10 11:47pm D. Blumin:

Show's up in a few, Remarkable...
Fatty Jubbo! Hello Hello Hello...
  Sat. 6/5/10 11:48pm Jacky Yoret:

I turned off my overhead light, and left the window open, to try to make the bells ring for the backyard courtyard because I need from them a change in pace
  Sat. 6/5/10 11:48pm D. Blumin:

Muhrvs! Shame on you! Howdy!
  Sat. 6/5/10 11:49pm dan in falls church VA:

...I feel all fulla nonsense from this broadcast, Dan'l!.. s'okay, i like it!
  Sat. 6/5/10 11:49pm remarkableerich:

shame just caught the end but thanks! next time? maybe some varese?
  Sat. 6/5/10 11:53pm Charly:

Another fantastic show D.B.
Worth staying up for and turning into a pumpkin.
  Sat. 6/5/10 11:53pm remarkableerich:

amen. damn work
  Sat. 6/5/10 11:54pm D. Blumin:

Jacky - overhead lights must always be turned - it's past 11pm!
  Sat. 6/5/10 11:55pm D. Blumin:

Thx fer hangin, all! Have a great week!
  Sat. 6/5/10 11:56pm Jacky Yoret:

This song reminds me a thick lugubrious orange tube, if I had words to mitigate lugubrious into something more correct, well I would certainly use them. Think's it the "tunnel boundaries " of this recording---underground and long mid-width uneven tube path
  Sat. 6/5/10 11:58pm Charly:

I;ll have some of what you;re on
  Sun. 6/6/10 12:00am Jacky Yoret:

It's great, the internet got it for me, he's my dog
  Sun. 6/6/10 12:01am dan in falls church VA:

Jacky, I think you have hit the nail on the head there...
  Sun. 6/6/10 12:15am Jacky Yoret:

I've hit the nail on the head only a few times, several but in clusters which merge and blur as time progresses. i am now returning (messiah to this people who are forsaken) at the passionate rage i feel now that this room is well lit and at my own hand because of course it had to be done but the return was jarring to say the least....it's the music of course that occasioned this mis-HAP or should it be mis-FORTUNE.
  Sun. 6/6/10 12:34am D. Blumin:

It's always a shame to return to the light, Jacky! Turn away... Turn away... Progressions and premonitions be damned...

Oh and of course among other things I forgot to gratulate, John Manhattan, the Matmos/So Percussion winner!

Fortune to all!
  Mon. 6/7/10 1:09pm Looms:

Nice last set, Daniel!

I wasn't accurate in translating "double peine" the other night, so let's put it right.

Literally, it has two meanings:
- double sorrow
- double punishment

That second term is generally used for an administrative decision or a court complementary punishment which is pronounced against foreigner convicts: they're temporarily of definitely banished from France and deported back to their homeland after they did their time in jail.
These convicts are also called "les double peines".
Lots of outrageous cases and human tragedies have been revealed at the beginning of the decade, and an opposition campaign was led by politicians, artists and social workers in order to change the law.
The change began in 2003, in the way required by the European Convention on Human Rights : http://www.ambafrance-uk.org/Immigration-in-France-Excerpt-from.html
