Listener comments!

  Sun. 8/21/11 9:22pm Richard from Venezuela:

Greetings Martha.

I just search about Botanist release. The track is called: Abrus Precatorius

Taken from here: http://goo.gl/oUVRJ

Great start. Very good the Angel Olsen track.
  Sun. 8/21/11 9:23pm hellbilly13:

Teutonic Bliss!
  Sun. 8/21/11 9:25pm jones:

Loving the show, Martha! Esp. Odal! Hello from out here in MI, land of oil spills and fracking! Come see us!
  Sun. 8/21/11 9:29pm Martha:

Thanks all for checking in - and for the Botanist track name - if you'd seen it and knew my aging eyes you'd know my troubles (excuses, excuses. excuses) -
  Sun. 8/21/11 9:29pm dave:

my money was on the goths in the hypereonic black metal throne championships. i still think the barbarians usurped it as a result of bad calls by the refs in the later eons.
  Sun. 8/21/11 9:29pm Martha:

And that Odal re-issue is great -
  Sun. 8/21/11 9:31pm frak:

How do you think people'd react if they knew you spy and bug their computers, fuckin' Mussolinis..
  Sun. 8/21/11 9:37pm jim:

Completely off topic, but the iPhone app is buggy w/ sound levels listening to archives w/ i4 @ least

Hi Martha!
  Sun. 8/21/11 9:37pm dave:

i don't know what frak is on abot, but if wfmu IS spying on me and bugging my computer, i can TOTALLY explain all the ann murray and toby keith FLACs. it's part of a... ummm... a sound collage project. for children in africa. i swear.
  Sun. 8/21/11 9:42pm jones:

Toby Keith! :-)
  Sun. 8/21/11 9:42pm Martha:

You gotta go to the main guys on the main page w/rt that iPhone sh*t - look to Mike Adler if there is a link to him there, he can at least forward you to the right people -
  Sun. 8/21/11 9:50pm tomB:

just walked in &noticed a great JeffAirplane knockoff--Walti Huber, new to me. But followed by the original JA knockoff--ShockingBlu. Only LA's X does a better hommage.
  Sun. 8/21/11 9:56pm Knockoff Artists:

Better to imitate Airplane than Starship...
  Sun. 8/21/11 9:58pm Martha:

Well said -
  Sun. 8/21/11 10:16pm dc pat:

Whatever brains = best name ever?
  Sun. 8/21/11 10:17pm PB:

Not to belabor the point, but never in the history of rock music have the members (Kantner, Balin & Slick at one point or another) of such a great band (the Airplance) been involved in such an absolutely dreadful horrible successor band (Starship or Jefferson Starship or whatever they were).
  Sun. 8/21/11 10:20pm dave:

youtake that back! "we built this city" is the anthem of my generation!
  Sun. 8/21/11 10:23pm Martha:

Hey Pat - thanks for checking in - yes great name and also a great band -
  Sun. 8/21/11 10:23pm Toby Keith:

You tell 'em, Dave.
  Sun. 8/21/11 10:26pm Starship:

We built this shitty!
  Sun. 8/21/11 10:30pm Martha:

To be honest - I hate that freakin' song - whatever happened to her amazing voice? - not that it was gone but I guess it wasn't used anymore???
  Sun. 8/21/11 10:30pm ?:

we built this shitty on pork and boooooaaaaar!
  Sun. 8/21/11 10:30pm tomB:

@PB What about Wings as a successor band?
  Sun. 8/21/11 10:31pm dave:

are blue sabbath black fiji anything to do wih blue sabbath black cheer?
  Sun. 8/21/11 10:32pm ?:

what's this? psychedelic stoner country rock?
  Sun. 8/21/11 10:32pm BSI:

holy crap! I missed Odal?!??!!
  Sun. 8/21/11 10:34pm jim m.:

hm, reminds me of riders on the storm
  Sun. 8/21/11 10:34pm PB:

tomB. Nice call, it's close but I think Starship beats Wings by a nose for overall putridness. McCartney's solo "career" was horrific. Aside from a few Lennon albums (Plastic Ono Band & Imagine) a few great Lennon singles (Instant Karma, Cold Turkey. etc.) and All Things Must Pass the Moptops solo careers were really bad.
  Sun. 8/21/11 10:35pm Ringo:

Our chequing accounts did nicely, thank you.
  Sun. 8/21/11 10:37pm Richard from Venezuela:

Mallcore
  Sun. 8/21/11 10:40pm ?:

martha... pssst... wrong mic
  Sun. 8/21/11 10:40pm Mathias:

Working night at a hotel deep in the countryside in denmark. Nothing to do. Watching Cheers with the sound of listening to WFMU. Great show
  Sun. 8/21/11 10:41pm dave:

google seems to suggest bsbf is nothing to do with bsbc.
  Sun. 8/21/11 10:42pm ?:

ah, I like those bands where the singer can't sing, everyone can't seem to play but the song is so upbeat that it's great anyway
  Sun. 8/21/11 10:42pm tomB:

@PB You're probably correct but if a 12 title Worst of Wings was compared to a Worst of Starship, Wings would have the most to avoid. As for the solo careers, I agree. It's proof of the self-editing power involved in group process.
  Sun. 8/21/11 10:43pm Martha:

It's My Baby's on Fire - I remember now -
  Sun. 8/21/11 10:45pm coelacanth:

Martha your show's keeping me up (on a ladder)Thank you It's perfect. ..."baby's on fire"
  Sun. 8/21/11 10:46pm ?:

gonna throw her in the water
  Sun. 8/21/11 10:48pm Martha:

yeah - that's the one -
  Sun. 8/21/11 10:49pm ?:

I can't get it right either, it's "better throw her in the water"... haha
  Sun. 8/21/11 10:50pm tomas:

art rock eno > ambient eno
  Sun. 8/21/11 10:51pm PB:

tomB, that is a very good point about the group dynamic. Off the top of my head. I can't think of very many artists whose solo career after working in a good or great group context was as good (or close to as good) as the group. Maybe Neil Young's early solo career after Buffalo Springfield and CSNY. and Lou Reed after the VU. The guy who I think had just about the worst solo career after being a key component of a great group was Riohard Ashcroft after the Verve split up the first time. His solo stuff was laughably bad.
  Sun. 8/21/11 10:51pm coelacanth:

*my oh so humble oppinion:The worst of Wings would be worse than the worst of Starship,but the best of Wings would be slightly better than the best of Starship.
  Sun. 8/21/11 10:56pm PB:

Bob Mould's band Sugar was a pretty good follow-up to Husker Du (although his true solo albums were not very good).
  Sun. 8/21/11 10:59pm dave:

i'll save everyone the effort i just expended: yes, the phrase "best of starship" appears in the titles of at least 3 distinct albums.

you're welcome.
  Sun. 8/21/11 11:01pm dave:

this transition, though, between bobbie gentry and william folwer collins & gog, has GOT to be unique in the annals of radio.

uniquely AWESOME.
  Sun. 8/21/11 11:02pm Martha:

Hey, ?, did I ever get the mic right?
  Sun. 8/21/11 11:02pm jones:

diggin' the william fowler collins!!!
  Sun. 8/21/11 11:02pm Elwyn:

@PB: I agree with all that.
  Sun. 8/21/11 11:02pm ?:

thank you, dave. I always wondered about how many best of albums they had.
  Sun. 8/21/11 11:05pm coelacanth:

the working tiltle was "the upper end of mediocrity"
  Sun. 8/21/11 11:05pm ?:

@martha: I tuned in later and only heard you talk one time. your voice sounded distant with background noise (AC running I think)... so assumed it's the wrong mic.
  Sun. 8/21/11 11:08pm coelacanth:

i liked it. It brought me back to the days when fmu usually shut down over night, and the marathon goal was around $10,000.for the year.
  Sun. 8/21/11 11:11pm Compilation Title:

"The It-Actually-Could-Have-Been-A-Lot-Worse-Considering-It-Was-80s-Pop of Jefferson Starship"
  Sun. 8/21/11 11:12pm ?:

Jeff & Jane, I like their direct no BS lyrics... they don't monkey around
  Sun. 8/21/11 11:13pm ?:

it's like they are eyr-to-eye with the powers that be
  Sun. 8/21/11 11:13pm ??:

They're da bomb!
  Sun. 8/21/11 11:15pm ?:

ah, he set the bomb off
  Sun. 8/21/11 11:16pm ?:

it's weird to hear music from japan that isn't either j-pop, visual kei or anime soundtracks
  Sun. 8/21/11 11:18pm PB:

Last comment of teh night, Bryan Ferry also had some decent stuff, post Roxy Music, particularly his covers. Enjoyed the show, keep up the good work
  Sun. 8/21/11 11:18pm ?:

it must be hard for artists from japan that don't fall into any typical cliches to get recognised
  Sun. 8/21/11 11:19pm Martha:

Thanks all for checking in about anything/everything - esp. my mic breaks - it is so hard to tell here w/in the studio how you sound - and also so glad you like d that transition <> Bobbie Gentry and WFC/Gog - that is always what I aim for - great segues -
  Sun. 8/21/11 11:20pm ?:

yeah, I can imagine. the noisy air conditioning is running, isn't it?
  Sun. 8/21/11 11:21pm Richard from Venezuela:

I love the math heavy post rock from Japan: Lite, Té, Toe, Mouse on the keys, etc.
  Sun. 8/21/11 11:23pm PB:

I lied, I just can't help myself when it comes to discussing music. Tom Verlaine had a good solo career after leaving Television and Thurston Moore has had a good solo career (although,of course, he has not left Sonic Youth, thank god).
  Sun. 8/21/11 11:24pm coelacanth:

Yes.It sounded scary.
  Sun. 8/21/11 11:24pm coelacanth:

But now it's fine.
  Sun. 8/21/11 11:25pm dave:

why i love WFMU: i had no idea whether that amazing noise was intentional.
  Sun. 8/21/11 11:25pm Richard from Venezuela:

I listen in my dark room. The off air sound make me crap.
  Sun. 8/21/11 11:27pm Richard from Venezuela:

*recent off air sound i must say. Now all works fine.
  Sun. 8/21/11 11:27pm coelacanth:

MARTHA! Skynyrd and Allman bros.shouldn't even be spoken in the same sentence! (i'm hurt!)
  Sun. 8/21/11 11:32pm Yay:

this song is gold
  Sun. 8/21/11 11:32pm coelacanth:

To clarify:Allman Brothers were Gods among their peers...Much more bluesy,more eclectic,more creative & original,better voices & better playing...They were the good kind of redneck!
  Sun. 8/21/11 11:32pm Martha:

Oops - sorry! - I was trying to avoid bringing in Neil Young, etc. and all that crap (you know what I mean, that whole comparative thing) - they are just sharing (in part) this retrospective - apologies again, I know what you mean!
  Sun. 8/21/11 11:35pm Richard from Venezuela:

Opponents track is called: Chapter 11

Taken from here: http://goo.gl/05QD2
  Sun. 8/21/11 11:37pm Richard from Venezuela:

to any listener who need scrobble this great set:

http://universalscrobbler.invitationstation.org/
  Sun. 8/21/11 11:43pm coelacanth:

i'm not actually freaking out about it! Just that i know some people who are open to country or mountain music to any degree,and blues,& like "rock"music,never even listen to Allman bros. because it's oft put with 'Skynerd,Charlie Daniels,& other...southern rock...& it was quite more sophisticated.
  Sun. 8/21/11 11:45pm dave:

i LOVE LOVE LOVE this fucked up album.
  Sun. 8/21/11 11:47pm coelacanth:

(but i actually was up on my ladder in the next room when you spoke & possibly didn't get the jist of your comparison...in which case- NEVERMIND! and,Sorry!)
  Sun. 8/21/11 11:49pm tomB:

@PB Can't keep up my end of the discussion. But I'd been thinking how Neil Young was the exception to the rule; maybe it's the ghost of Danny Whitten that keeps him better edited. CSNY definitely less than Springfield.
Was Blind Faith better than Cream? Yes because of Winwood. But Blind Faith was not as good as Traffic. Both Winwood & Clapton are uneven in their solo careers
Thompson & Denny did great solo work after Fairport, unlike Ian Matthews.
But the real exception is the successor to the two LPs of the Hourglass: -the Allman Bros.
  Sun. 8/21/11 11:56pm Richard from Venezuela:

answering the doubt: Existo Vulgoré

From: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Illud_Divinum_Insanus
  Sun. 8/21/11 11:56pm tomB:

One more: As much as I like early ELO, as a reconstituted Move they lost ground fast.
  Mon. 8/22/11 12:00am Richard from Venezuela:

Amazing show as usual. Thanks for sharing this amazing music Martha. Have a nice week.
  Mon. 8/22/11 12:03am coelacanth:

Thank you Martha. Please forgive my ranting! I know you understand the passion behind it.
