"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. 4/11/12 7:55am George of Troy:

JA, did you see the article about Charles Gayle in this month's issue of The Wire? Pretty interesting.
Avatar Wed. 4/11/12 7:58am JA:

hey george, have not seen that yet. thx for the heads up. gayle was the first jazz person i ever saw play live. he holds a special place in my heart, although the skids character scares the fuck out of me when he starts that mime stuff
  Wed. 4/11/12 8:03am George of Troy:

Yeah, actually talks about the hobo/mime thing quite a bit. Also mentions a documentary from the 80's that I'm anxious to check out, about the free jazz scene in NYC. Gayle is featured in it.
Avatar Wed. 4/11/12 8:08am JA:

interested in reading about the mime thing...it's always reminded me of neil young's "trans" and i wondered if charles had a child he needed to communicate to through clown makeup. that doc is great, look for it!
  Wed. 4/11/12 8:27am Cheri Pi:

anyone else having trouble with t he flash stream? I can't get it to load...
  Wed. 4/11/12 8:27am BF:

Do you know that your flash stream is down? (It's the only one that the corporate network lets through . . .)
  Wed. 4/11/12 8:29am Cheri Pi:

Yes-help me keep the man off my back and restore the flash stream! Until then I'll just read the comment board.
Avatar Wed. 4/11/12 8:30am JA:

  Wed. 4/11/12 8:32am Andrew Waterloo:

  Wed. 4/11/12 8:33am Electric Cowbell:

  Wed. 4/11/12 8:41am Braveness23:

  Wed. 4/11/12 8:42am fred von helsing:
