Artist Track Album Label Comments Special
 
Set 1: the top side of the Lester Young sandwich.
Lester Young  "After You've Gone" (side 1, track 6) (Listen: Real)   Options Lester Young: The Aladdin Sessions  Blue Note Reissue Series  A fast version, it was recorded in early 1946 with Johnny Otis on drums. Otis was later to make a big name for himself in r&b during the 1950's.   
 
 
Background music played during this mic break:
Les Chakachas  "Love is like a Violin" (track 4) (Listen: Real)   Options Arriba!  RCA International  Phat, sentimental sound. Feels like it's the slow song at the record hop.   
 
 
Set 2: the old radio show portion of the evening.
X - 1  "Perigi's Wonderful Dolls" (Listen: Real)   Options Originally broadcast June 5, 1955.  (no label)  A seemingly innocent doll shop...an appointment with doom - for Earth, of course, as doll-like aliens plot to take over the world. Evil Toto! Bad doll!   
 
 
Background music played during this mic break:
Les Chakachas  "Love is like a Violin" (track 4) (Listen: Real)   Options Arriba!  RCA International  Phat, sentimental sound. Feels like it's the slow song at the record hop.   
 
 
Set 3: 50 minutes of psych, from light & airy to heavy-duty. (Listen to this set: Real)
Jojo Hiroshige with Yoshiko Sai  "Crimson Voyage" (track 2) (Listen: Real)   Options Crimson Voyage  Alchemy Records  Quiet and airy, with high-sounding vocalizing. Almost operatic, in a way. Kind of a mix of experimental and acid.   
Gravitar  "Falling Pieces Of The Mothership" (track 2) (Listen: Real)   Options A Brief History Of (91 - 95)  MGOGM  A nod to Hendrix and Clockwork Orange near the beginning, it builds to slightly swirly psych rock.   
OAD  "Slimy Crime" (Side A) (Listen: Real)   Options (a 7")  Japan Overseas  Slower, heavier, echoey vocals floating over the top.   
ST 37  "The Pleiadian" (CD #2, track 2) (Listen: Real)   Options Nunavut  Blue Circle  Swirly acid rock.   
 
 
Background music played during this mic break:

Set 4: from quiet & haunting to serious psych rock. (Listen to this set: Real)
Father Moo And The Black Sheep  (no title) (Listen: Real)   Options Father Moo And The Black Sheep  Acid Mothers Temple  Slow, quiet and warm, spaced, long.  ***  
OAD  "Double Bind" (Side B) (Listen: Real)   Options (a 7")  Japan Overseas  Heacy psych rock, druggy & deep, fairly slow, and hallucinatorially swirly in the background.   
High Rise  "Door" (track 5) (Listen: Real)   Options Live  Squealer  Heavy psych rock, more intense than OAD - more raw, and louder.   
Skywave  "Seen It All" (track 4) (begun at -3:10) (Listen: Real)   Options Live At WFMU September 22, 2000  (no label)  Heavy, fairly high speed.

Frank London's Klezmer Brass All Stars  "Lieberman Husidl" (Lover Man's Slow Dance)" (track 7) (Listen: Real)   Options Brotherhood of Brass  Piranha  From Eastern Europe to the Lower East Side. Short and jaunty.   
Fanfare Ciocarlia  "Besh O Drom (Keep On Walking)" (track 12) (Listen: Real)   Options Iag Bari  Piranha  From Eastern Europe...to Eastern Europe. Some super high speed horns at the end!   
Frank London's Klezmer Brass All Stars  "Lieberman Funky Freylekhs" (track 8) (Listen: Real)   Options Brotherhood of Brass  Piranha  Steadily upbeat. This track features the Boban Markovic Orkestar.   
Fanfare Ciocarlia  "Baro Biao (Pascani Wedding)" (track 18) (Listen: Real)   Options Baro Biao  Piranha  Hallucinatorially edged, Eastern European wedding song.
