Listener comments!

  Tue. 5/10/11 12:01pm Alf from Upstate:

Go Tony go.
  Tue. 5/10/11 12:01pm tonyc:

Hullo dere! Here's my new in-theme (a collage of mine).
  Tue. 5/10/11 12:02pm Brian in UK:

Afternoon Tony et al. Specialist instrument: pink oboe.
  Tue. 5/10/11 12:02pm Ricardo Montalban:

Greetings, Tony!
  Tue. 5/10/11 12:04pm Brian in UK:

When do the cartoons start Mr Tony?
  Tue. 5/10/11 12:05pm tonyc:

They're on right now! (Greetings, everybody!)
  Tue. 5/10/11 12:07pm Drummer Some:

Howdy Tony. Thanks for letting us in the bat cave.
  Tue. 5/10/11 12:07pm tonyc:

Howdy, Dougster!
  Tue. 5/10/11 12:12pm tonyc:

Stay tuned for the post-song analysis by a bunch of Irish priests....
  Tue. 5/10/11 12:13pm mark:

Father Ted?
  Tue. 5/10/11 12:14pm Drummer Some:

Gee. O.D.
  Tue. 5/10/11 12:16pm tonyc:

Father Brian D'Arcy et al....
  Tue. 5/10/11 12:19pm tonyc:

I've tracked Gary down and will be bringing you more by the Vandells....
  Tue. 5/10/11 12:23pm tonyc:

This is a stahwee....
  Tue. 5/10/11 12:26pm tonyc:

Today they're telling it like it is....
  Tue. 5/10/11 12:28pm Drummer Some:

Wow. Covering this tune is a gutsy move.
  Tue. 5/10/11 12:29pm tonyc:

Up ahead: post-prog-punk-arama
  Tue. 5/10/11 12:30pm tonyc:

The honesty's too much....
  Tue. 5/10/11 12:35pm Ricardo Montalban:

I once found a stack of cassette from some bottom-drawer lounge act from the 80's. They were just recordings of gigs. Somewhere I have excerpted a hilariously voice-cracked version of Gloria (the Laura Branigan version, not the garage band staple) and a really putrid version of I Left My Heart in San Francisco, that the band used as an outro to intermission on most of the tapes.
  Tue. 5/10/11 12:37pm tonyc:

The weird thing about a lot of lounge acts is that they try to work comedy routines into their acts.
  Tue. 5/10/11 12:40pm tonyc:

Just look, don't touch....
  Tue. 5/10/11 12:44pm tonyc:

Programming note: Ron Kane is not actually a sex killer....
  Tue. 5/10/11 12:46pm Ricardo Montalban:

When I was a teen I washed dishes in a lounge dive, and one regular band used to crack people up by their bass player making a very realistic fart sound with his bass. He'd do it at least two times per set between songs.
  Tue. 5/10/11 12:46pm Ricardo Montalban:

AH, I forgot about that 'You'll Hate This Record" comp!
  Tue. 5/10/11 12:47pm Alf from Upstate:

I find this kind of touching.
  Tue. 5/10/11 12:47pm tonyc:

It is very sentimental, isn't it?
  Tue. 5/10/11 12:48pm BSI:

AH!!!!!!!! Just tuned in & missed my local legends...... oh, sweet Psychodrama, come back, all is forgiven.... well, almost all....
  Tue. 5/10/11 12:49pm Ricardo Montalban:

Wasn't it compiled by Mykel Board, who was in Artless? Seem to remember seeing it reviewed in Maximum Rock and Roll.
I think it was in the library at KBOO a long time ago.
  Tue. 5/10/11 12:50pm tonyc:

RM: yep, it was ineed compiled by Mykel Board
BSI: You caught Psychodrama live?! I'm impressed....
  Tue. 5/10/11 12:52pm Ike:

Ah, nice. Now you're lured me back from DJ Schmeejay's excellent show on KUSF in Exile (hosted by WFMU). Sorry that I was cheating on you with DJ Schmeejay, Tony.
  Tue. 5/10/11 12:52pm mike tp:

as usual artists i never heard. keep them comming hello portland 75 here in jersey
  Tue. 5/10/11 12:53pm J J:

I like it over here.
  Tue. 5/10/11 12:53pm BSI:

actually no, never caught 'em live. But their legend (and goat stories) loom large...
  Tue. 5/10/11 12:54pm Ricardo Montalban:

Love those lost gems of 80's Post-Punk/New Wave.
Tony: Remember the Hawaiian Pups?
  Tue. 5/10/11 12:54pm tonyc:

That's OK, Ike -- the honesty was too much anyhow....
  Tue. 5/10/11 12:55pm BSI:

oh jeez, Hawaiian Pups... WMUC over here used to have the Baby Judy track on steady rotation...
  Tue. 5/10/11 12:55pm Ricardo Montalban:

Citizen X sound like The Stranglers.
  Tue. 5/10/11 12:56pm tonyc:

BSI: Don't tell me the goat stories if they involve blood (sex acts are OK)
RM: Somehow missed out on the Hawaiian Pups -- have never heard them...
  Tue. 5/10/11 12:57pm Ricardo Montalban:

Like BSI said, Baby Judy got tons of airplay on college radio and here on KBOO's late great New Wave show Stranger Than Fiction.
  Tue. 5/10/11 12:58pm BSI:

Tony: we're talking classic DC stories of film footage accompanying live performances = simulated "intimacies" with goat involving BK, also known as Jesus. At least that's the legend.
  Tue. 5/10/11 12:58pm Ricardo Montalban:

HP only put out one EP called Split Second Precision, then folded. Rumours of it being re-issued abound. One former member is preventing people from posting the album online, pending the rerelease (that isn't coming).
  Tue. 5/10/11 12:59pm BSI:

Another ex-Psychodrama member had a short-lived public-access cable show out of the Fairfax VA station called ACID TEST...... it remains to this day the greatest TV I've ever seen.
  Tue. 5/10/11 1:01pm tonyc:

Ah -- I'm glad to hear no baby goats were injured ... even if their morals were corrupted.
  Tue. 5/10/11 1:02pm J J:

@BSI any of this stuff on youtube? It should be mined and rediscovered if not.
  Tue. 5/10/11 1:03pm Ike:

Sorry, I have a history of being far too honest for my own good with all those that I looooove. No goats included. Anyway, loving these sounds.
  Tue. 5/10/11 1:05pm BSI:

JJ: no Acid Test on youtube that i know of, although i do have the full season on DVD-R, so..........
  Tue. 5/10/11 1:06pm Ike:

If not Yerterb, then I bet Kenny G. would love to have it on Ubu.
  Tue. 5/10/11 1:08pm tonyc:

Yeah, that's be great -- I'd love to see it.....
  Tue. 5/10/11 1:15pm Drummer Some:

Isn't Kenny G at the White House today?
  Tue. 5/10/11 1:17pm tonyc:

Think so. He had to dress the baby goats up in tuxedos....
  Tue. 5/10/11 1:18pm tonyc:

This Gentle Giant goes out to Dave Mandl....
  Tue. 5/10/11 1:26pm Brian in UK:

Bedside manners are extra. Really.
  Tue. 5/10/11 1:26pm tonyc:

I'll be progging out for a bit -- before returning to the post-punk weirdness....
  Tue. 5/10/11 1:29pm J J:

Those keys, oh so smooooth.
  Tue. 5/10/11 1:31pm tonyc:

Believe it or not, the band Bridges turned into A-ha a couple of years after that track....
  Tue. 5/10/11 1:33pm Alf from Upstate:

I didn't you've been to Prague!
  Tue. 5/10/11 1:36pm tonyc:

I grew up on Praguegressive rock...
  Tue. 5/10/11 1:39pm tonyc:

Did she say, "Pete Rose, I'm Looking at You?"
  Tue. 5/10/11 1:49pm Jeremy:

Fab show, Tony, enjoying Prague or wherever we are...order me some duck with dumplings and a slice of deconstructed pudding....
  Tue. 5/10/11 1:49pm Carmichael:

Jeez, Tony Coulter's on the alternate stream!
  Tue. 5/10/11 1:50pm tonyc:

Hey, Jeremy and Carmichael -- glad you're both here!
  Tue. 5/10/11 1:51pm Drummer Some:

Tell all your friends, Carmichael.
  Tue. 5/10/11 1:51pm tonyc:

Tell your enemies too...
  Tue. 5/10/11 1:53pm tonyc:

The next set will be built around deconstructed pudding....
  Tue. 5/10/11 1:56pm Bill Cosby:

I approve, zippity bobbity boop scoop
  Tue. 5/10/11 2:01pm tonyc:

Pudding on the ritz cracker for ya...
  Tue. 5/10/11 2:01pm Carmichael:

I'm faxing them all as we speak.
  Tue. 5/10/11 2:01pm Andy Griffith:

Mmmm ... good cracker!
  Tue. 5/10/11 2:04pm tonyc:

I needle the pudding....
  Tue. 5/10/11 2:08pm tonyc:

These Manatees are post-Decayes....
  Tue. 5/10/11 2:08pm Ricardo Montalban:

I remember reading lots of ads for records and getting catalogs from distros in the early-mid eighties and it seemed like half the bands were described as sounding like The Residents/ That Mark Ellis track just reminded me of that.
  Tue. 5/10/11 2:10pm tonyc:

Well, it is rather Residential....
  Tue. 5/10/11 2:11pm Ricardo Montalban:

was bitterly disappointed in the Meet The Residents reissue on vinyl. Sounds not so good and some tracks are truncated.
  Tue. 5/10/11 2:11pm Carmichael:

All I know about the Systematics is that they were Australian, founded by a guy named Patrick Gibson, and they existed in the late 70s early 80s. An obscurist's obscurity.
  Tue. 5/10/11 2:14pm tonyc:

Carmichael: Lots of Systematics stuff has been reissued in recent years, fortunately....

RM: I approach new vinyl with great trepidation -- it so often sounds like crap
  Tue. 5/10/11 2:14pm Ricardo Montalban:

I can't believe how much undiscovered cool music there is to be had from Mexico and surrounding countries...
  Tue. 5/10/11 2:14pm Jeremy:

I'm really picking up on what you're pudding down!
  Tue. 5/10/11 2:14pm tonyc:

  Tue. 5/10/11 2:15pm Ricardo Montalban:

Tony's Pudding on the hits!
  Tue. 5/10/11 2:16pm Drummer Some:

I love this one, Tony. (LIke schoolboy-crush love.)
  Tue. 5/10/11 2:17pm tonyc:

They were from Chile, and were forced into exile -- went to France
  Tue. 5/10/11 2:20pm Drummer Some:

I just searched the WFMU site and discovered that I've played them! A collaboration with the proggy/psychy Brazilian Manduka.
  Tue. 5/10/11 2:21pm tonyc:

Yeah, that's a good album....
  Tue. 5/10/11 2:23pm Ricardo Montalban:

I was just recently contacted by Trubee for playing his music on my show. I was touched.
  Tue. 5/10/11 2:23pm Ike:

Nifty! Was that Bruni B.B. related to that Angry Birds whatchamacallit that's so popular with the kids? Because it sure *sounded* like angry birds.
  Tue. 5/10/11 2:24pm tonyc:

Don't think Bruni B.B. was an angry bird -- he's from Iceland....
  Tue. 5/10/11 2:25pm Alf from Upstate:

Was that "Blind Man's Penis" John Trubee?
  Tue. 5/10/11 2:26pm Ike:

Sounded like he rounded up the best EVER Icelandic angry robot birds for that track.
  Tue. 5/10/11 2:28pm Ricardo Montalban:

Yes, Trubee wrote Penis when he was a teenager. Some song poem dude recordded it and Trubee's been making hay with it and his pranks ever since.
He is pretty funny, in my opinion. Not too bad of a writer, too.
  Tue. 5/10/11 2:33pm tonyc:

Dead air -- the ultimate radio taboo
  Tue. 5/10/11 2:34pm Ricardo Montalban:

I don't hear any dead air. I heard tension building silence, but no dead air.
  Tue. 5/10/11 2:36pm tonyc:

Those gaps in the Kaufmann piece are long enough to set off alarms in a commercial station, I'd bet
  Tue. 5/10/11 2:37pm tonyc:

He can hump any stump....
  Tue. 5/10/11 2:40pm Drummer Some:

Give the Drummer Radio deejays are mandated to air at least 27 seconds of dead air each program. (Tony is our *Star*)
  Tue. 5/10/11 2:42pm Ricardo Montalban:

I once went out for a smoke and came back to a stuck, skipping record and no one noticed.
  Tue. 5/10/11 2:44pm tonyc:

Yes, they do spell it "minimam" -- go easy on them, they're Japanese....
  Tue. 5/10/11 2:45pm tonyc:

I've always wanted to do a show where I deliberately f'ed everything up technically, but without ever admitting what I was up to....
  Tue. 5/10/11 2:46pm Ricardo Montalban:

Sounds like a daytime show on KBOO
  Tue. 5/10/11 2:46pm Jeremy:

This comp is a winner...extra foam on the John Cage pudding of silence...
  Tue. 5/10/11 2:48pm tonyc:

It *is* great -- but it's so hard to take the records out of the damn arty packaging
  Tue. 5/10/11 2:49pm BSI:

whoa, haven't heard Human Flesh since that Inner-X video comp from the late '80s....theirs was a bizarre standout track...
  Tue. 5/10/11 2:51pm tonyc:

I love Human Flesh and all the other Alain Neffe bands
  Tue. 5/10/11 2:51pm Drummer Some:

Coming up this evening (6-7pm, ET) LIVE on Give the Drummer Radio (simulcast on the WFMU Mothership) I will be spinning an hour of all kinds of crazy Nigerian shite! Don't miss it Cousins!
  Tue. 5/10/11 2:54pm tonyc:

And closer to home, I'll be running a wee bit over today, as I wanted to play one last short thing after this set....
  Tue. 5/10/11 2:58pm tonyc:

There's a great live clip on yurt-tube of Monitor doing this very number:

  Tue. 5/10/11 3:05pm Ricardo Montalban:

Thanks for a particularly inspired set, Tony!
Fun times. And pudding.
  Tue. 5/10/11 3:06pm Jeremy:

Yes top shelf show TC, thanks for pudding me in my place!
  Tue. 5/10/11 3:07pm tonyc:

Thanks Senor M and Jeremy! And thanks to everyone for tuning in (streaming in?) ... and pudding up with me. See you in two weeks....
