Coming up today: new releases from Tom Recchion, Alexander Ross, and Eriek Van Havere's great EE Tapes label -- plus a whole bunch of '60s psych and '80s post-punk, all mashed together into one (hopefully) tasty patty.

Greetings, Mr. Stash -- er, Hash.

This piece is as good as (if not better than)any of the best prog rock or Krautrock out there!
  Tue. 9/4/12 12:10pm Ricardo Montalban:

Hola, Senor Tony!
I just bought a space-themed BBC record that has that Holst piece on it.
Seems like lots of my LP purchases have been space-themed lately.
Avatar Tue. 9/4/12 12:11pm tonyc:

Space is the place -- for records, anyhow. Hola, senor!
  Tue. 9/4/12 12:15pm Ricardo Montalban:

Space was the theme for the weekend though, as in, I'm running out of it.
Avatar Tue. 9/4/12 12:17pm tonyc:

I still haven't fully unpacked three years after moving, because I don't have enough space for all my crap. I may have to send some of it up into outer space.
  Tue. 9/4/12 12:21pm Rasputin's Hash:

or virtual space Tony!
Would you download your cds and store them in a virtual space on the web and then rid yourself of the physical cd etc.
  Tue. 9/4/12 12:21pm listener james from westwood:

uniting the themes of space and storage: before it was purchased by one of the big storage-space companies, there was a huge locker farm on the route i used to take between nj and boston called "hyperspace."

Hola señoras y señores! Hola Toño Coulter!
Avatar Tue. 9/4/12 12:23pm tonyc:

@ Rasputin's Hash: Nope, would never do that. If I did, I would lose track of all the music I have. I need the objects themselves to serve as reminders/visual cues.
Avatar Tue. 9/4/12 12:24pm tonyc:

Guten tag, Herr Manuel!
  Tue. 9/4/12 12:28pm Ricardo Montalban:

I went through a period of digitizing tons of CDs and selling them but had filled several hard drives of music that I almost never listen to. I also ripped a lot of it at 192kbps, thinking they sounded 'good enough' back then. Ffft!
  Tue. 9/4/12 12:28pm Rasputin's Hash:

a few years ago I was downsizing and downloaded a lot of my collection on to a 1tb external hard disc/media player.
I must say I hardly ever listen to the music on it now as it has destroyed my interest in the artwork, band information and details etc. that I had in each individual album.
The storage media may be useful but ultimately makes everything characterless and meaningless!
Avatar Tue. 9/4/12 12:31pm tonyc:

Agreed, absolutely.
  Tue. 9/4/12 12:36pm Rasputin's Hash:

this track sounds like Brian Jones tripping to the Master Musicians of Joujouka!

"Kaukana väijyy ystäviä" should mean something like "from afar one lurks friends"
Avatar Tue. 9/4/12 12:42pm tonyc:

This Alexander Ross is a vinyl reissue of a cassette. I wonder if things that only came out on CD will now start getting reissued on vinyl?
  Tue. 9/4/12 12:43pm kat330:

Well, here's a lurking friend, Manuel, and certainly far from Bruxelles.

Allo, all!
  Tue. 9/4/12 12:44pm Rasputin's Hash:

is that for the audiophiles out there who prefer vinyl to cd?
Avatar Tue. 9/4/12 12:44pm tonyc:

@ Manuel Van Brüssel: I'm not going to even attempt to figure out anything about Finnish -- even though I'll be in Finland next month -- it's just too damn intimidatingly weird.
Avatar Tue. 9/4/12 12:44pm tonyc:

Allo, lurking Kat!
Avatar Tue. 9/4/12 12:45pm tonyc:

@ Rasputin's Hash: Yeah -- the audiophiles and the trendies -- and now that CDs are slowly dying out.
  Tue. 9/4/12 12:47pm Hugo:

Whereto in Finland? I have to say that Helsinki is the only Nordic capital I haven't visited, but on the other hand, several trips to Åbo/Turku.
  Tue. 9/4/12 12:47pm kat330:

@tony: A reflection of their cultural weirdness. :) Like international air guitar contests, "Lordi," and such films as "Rare Exports" and "Iron Sky." You'll have a blast!
  Tue. 9/4/12 12:48pm Rasputin's Hash:

personally don't see vinyl ,cd or any other media surviving the download onslaught.
Those that are committed to vinyl good on you but eventually it will die out? (in my view).
  Tue. 9/4/12 12:49pm Manuel Van Brüssel:

google translator says "Far from lurking friends". Hey! I was close ;)
Avatar Tue. 9/4/12 12:49pm tonyc:

@ Hugo: I'm Helsinki bound -- and probably won't have time to go to any other cities in Finland.
  Tue. 9/4/12 12:51pm kat330:

Speaking of "Grandfather Paradox," it will be interesting how that is resolved in the upcoming film "Looper."
  Tue. 9/4/12 12:51pm Hugo:

As far as I know, there is a good record shop in Helsinki. Might be worth visiting.

Avatar Tue. 9/4/12 12:52pm tonyc:

Thanks, Hugo! I'll investigate -- and, of course, whatever I come up with will be shared here.
  Tue. 9/4/12 12:52pm kat330:

Yes, Hugo, on the list my Finn husband gave to Tony.
  Tue. 9/4/12 12:54pm kat330:

Is this track about the infamous Eastwood RNC scold? I don't know if that chair was mesmerized, but no doubt traumatized.
Avatar Tue. 9/4/12 12:57pm tonyc:

Ha!
  Tue. 9/4/12 12:58pm Hugo:

Do chairs have feelings, empty or not?
Avatar Tue. 9/4/12 12:59pm tonyc:

Chair-ity begins at home.
  Tue. 9/4/12 12:59pm kat330:

@Hugo: Empty chairs probably have feelings of emptiness.
  Tue. 9/4/12 1:00pm BSI:

I've seen easy chairs, and I've seen sleazy chairs.
Loveseats, certainly, but a HATE-SEAT, that's gonna be quite a ride.
  Tue. 9/4/12 1:00pm listener james from westwood:

hugo, their anxieties are deep-seated.
  Tue. 9/4/12 1:01pm BSI:

It does laps all day without moving.
whoa... mind completely blode.
  Tue. 9/4/12 1:01pm Ann Nuit:

@Hugo: Surement!
  Tue. 9/4/12 1:01pm Missing Chaiirs:

They know when sit & shit.
  Tue. 9/4/12 1:02pm still b/p:

Pleeease, Mr. President, when it's time for you to do a bit at the next White House Correspondents dinner, speak to Clint as represented by an empty saddle onstage. Shit'll nearly write itself.
  Tue. 9/4/12 1:03pm T.D. Yum:

@Hugo: Shi!
Avatar Tue. 9/4/12 1:05pm tonyc:

Chairs may feel empty when no one sits on them -- but it's a bum-mer too when someone does.
  Tue. 9/4/12 1:05pm kat330:

I was a bit unnerved to get emails (multiple, as always) announcing a 25%-off sale at the Obama store. Seems a strange timing.
  Tue. 9/4/12 1:05pm Hugo:

I don't think Obama is willing to share his chair.
  Tue. 9/4/12 1:07pm kat330:

Ah! Just noticed the "Hen's Teeth" label on the last one. Psychedelicacies are as "rare as hen's teeth"?
  Tue. 9/4/12 1:07pm BSI:

well now that doesn't sound very socialist.
  Tue. 9/4/12 1:08pm kat330:

I suppose Chris Christie calls loveseats "respect" seats. Actually, just a comfortable seat for him.
Avatar Tue. 9/4/12 1:09pm tonyc:

@ Kat330: You got it!

From the other room, I thought they were singing "do the baba wawa" as in Barbara Walters.
  Tue. 9/4/12 1:14pm BSI:

holy crap, Bananafish, flashy-backy...
  Tue. 9/4/12 1:14pm Playskool:

Woggles Boggle but they don't do downs.

Hugh Downs? [there's the baba wawa connection]
  Tue. 9/4/12 1:17pm Manuel Van Brüssel:

Terve @Kat330! Tony, that Executives' song was super trippy.
Avatar Tue. 9/4/12 1:18pm tonyc:

@ Manuel: yes, it is a great song, isn't it! Supposedly their only good one.
  Tue. 9/4/12 1:18pm Hugo:

I'm trying to imagine the visuals to this track - Bananafish. Somehow, I'm stuck. A visit to the dentist was never like this.
  Tue. 9/4/12 1:19pm kat330:

@BSI: Wacky flashy-backy? I have very little psychedelic experience involving albums. Almost every trip was spent in the glorious outdoors. [pre-Walkman daze even]
Avatar Tue. 9/4/12 1:21pm tonyc:

Pretty extreme nicotine withdrawal here....
  Tue. 9/4/12 1:23pm BSI:

@kat330: stylus hits the locked groove at the end of Hawkwind's "X in Search of Space," runs for about ten minutes. Somebody finally turns it off. Cue some other dude, with suddenly huge, wide eyes.... "HEY, everybody... let's go....OUT-SIDE......."
  Tue. 9/4/12 1:24pm BSI:

[room full of people suddenly nod in some kind of sacred union]
.....out-SIDE!
  Tue. 9/4/12 1:25pm BSI:

uh, just a random scene. nothing too self-incriminating there...
Avatar Tue. 9/4/12 1:27pm tonyc:

A rather un-Sabbath-y track this one, no?
  Tue. 9/4/12 1:27pm Hugo:

There was a M.A.Numminen sings Wittgenstein cd. Never heard it.

Wuz just going to say, regarding the last track, that a firemen's union labor dispute seems an unusual topic for a psychedelic pop song

I forgot to chime in. Chime!
  Tue. 9/4/12 1:54pm kat330:

@Rasputin: Yay! Also, since Doug seems to be reeling from his long tall draught of Tony, I'll answer as to what I recall: I believe Doug was to call about service on Wednesday, so that Friday's show might be canceled, but no problem tonight. He'll correct me if I'm wrong.

Kat,
Do you think we'll have a show full of songs about Empty Chairs, or tracks exclusively by the Dancehall Reggae star Clint Eastwood or what?
  Tue. 9/4/12 1:57pm kat330:

One can never guess what's up Mr. Schulkind's sleeve. The graphic Isaac, par exemple.
  Tue. 9/4/12 1:58pm Hugo:

Or songs by Chairmen of the Board?
  Tue. 9/4/12 1:59pm Rasputin's Hash:

Hugo,
I'll H2Ogate that!
  Tue. 9/4/12 2:01pm Hugo:

I'm considering giving my chair to chairity.
  Tue. 9/4/12 2:02pm kat330:

But I'm reminded of an absurd non sequitur I left the top of Doug's Friday list. I did not see the RNC Thursday. So I quickly (and incorrectly) extrapolated from LJfW's footstool and the box store graphic that it was a furniture store depicted -- thus my "bedroom suite" pun. Makes absolutely no sense when I reviewed it later with a bit more time.

I take that as an oblique reference to a Welsh rock group.

Whenever Washington Sq.'s mentioned, I wonder when the heck that 7SD busker program is going to air?!

  Tue. 9/4/12 2:24pm Doug S.:

@kat330
Honestly, the comments come pouring in so fast while I'm trying to queue each new record and do mic breaks AND respond to comments — I guess I start from the assumption that everyone is making perfect sense. And you tend to make perfecter sense than most. So no, I didn't notice anything amiss!
  Tue. 9/4/12 2:29pm kat330:

I've decided I should never revisit any of my playlist comments as I don't enjoy cringing. Saw another doozie where I'd typed "mandarined" when I *thought* I had typed "mandolined" -- some spellcheck weirdness or brain burp -- I dunno, but embarrassing!

I meant LINK not gap....sheeesh....mush indeed.
Avatar Tue. 9/4/12 2:40pm tonyc:

Punk/ post-punk and psych overlap a lot, if you ask me. They were less than 10 years apart, after all.

@Doug S, I've always loved that Free Design lyric.

@NGH
Tony Coulter is the one who taught me to love Free Design (like so much else).
  Tue. 9/4/12 2:43pm kat330:

@Tony: Well, the gap is actually in my own life: I became involved in a lot of classical music / singing in the mid-70s, and that sort of continued through the punk period. For me it was almost Hendrix to Nirvana. Not quite THAT long of a gap, but still....

It was a friend and Stereolab that got me into the Free Design.
  Tue. 9/4/12 2:49pm Hugo:

The other Nirvana?
  Tue. 9/4/12 2:50pm Hugo:

The Free Design was a Delevan, New York-based vocal group playing jazzy pop music. Their music can be described as sunshine pop and baroque pop, which were pop music subgenres at the time, which later influenced the bands Stereolab, Cornelius, Pizzicato Five, Beck and The High Llamas.

This one?

@RH: Among many other things.

@Hugo: Kurt and to the point, yeah. Just events in '91-'92 returned me to a highly radio-active state after a long absence.

GIVE THE DRUMMER RADIO PROGRAMMING ALERT...
The cruel truth that Tony's show will come to an end is only now looming on the horizon. You can curl up fetal in the corner, or you can remain steadfast in the desperate hope that TWO MORE SHOWS coming up later on the Drummer Stream will provide a measure of comfort:

At 6pm, I will be back with a 1-hour edition of Give the Drummer Some. The show will be an epic paean to jury duty (my service to which may put the kibosh on my Friday GTDS)

At 7pm, Kaminsky Kamoutsky with Jesse will be live on the stream. Jesse will be flying solo tonight from his new digs in Providence, RI.

Immediately following Tony here on your 24-hour Give the Drummer Radio, these fine artists will try to take the sting out of waiting a whole week until Tony comes back with Tape Hiss next Tuesday:

Les Tambours Du Bronx
Jackson C. Frank
Nubar & Ibrahim Bey
Mezz Mezzrow
The Blue Notes (the South African, not Harold Melvin's band)
Sonny Okosun
Djosinha
Blackman Akeeb Kareen & His Super Band
The Oriental Funk
Sutrak Aksonthong
Kazuki Tomokawa
Kuldeep Manak
Rosie N. Wilson
Smokey and His Sister
Willie West
Willie Williams
Daddy Stovepipe
and more
and more
and eternally more...

A lot of Jesus bands covered Free Design songs in the '70s, I've noticed.

Hugo,
there can only be one Nirvana by definition!
the other one turned out to be hell in reality!

Remember to stick around for the EE Tapes bonus overtime, coming up next, after the set break.

How appropriate -- in today's mail is a Habitat for Humanity group of cards w/envelopes. An empty chair is depicted in the bottom corner of a couple.
  Tue. 9/4/12 2:58pm Rasputin's Hash:

Habitat for Humanity - bit of a mouthfull?
  Tue. 9/4/12 3:00pm Rasputin's Hash:

this trip too stoned for me - is this lily the pink or what?
  Tue. 9/4/12 3:00pm Hugo:

I have to confess I haven't listened much to UK Nirvana. They probably didn't get the commercial success they deserved. Same old story ...

Here's a youtube vid for this Absent Music track: youtu.be...
  Tue. 9/4/12 3:01pm listener james from westwood:

thanks a million (or $432,092 adjusted for inflation) for the fine show, tony!
  Tue. 9/4/12 3:02pm kat330:

Thanks, Tony, and for these fine 3+ hours as well!

Have a great day / eve / tomorrow morn everyone!

A second band called Nirvana didn't faze me -- but when a '90s band called themselves The Mothers -- now that was irritating!
  Tue. 9/4/12 3:03pm Rasputin's Hash:

is this dubbed up art damaged freak punk or what?
  Tue. 9/4/12 3:04pm Rasputin's Hash:

see you later TC,
I really enjoyed it,
ON WITH THE SHOW!
Avatar Tue. 9/4/12 3:04pm tonyc:

Thanks for listening everybody!! See you next week, I hope!
  Tue. 9/4/12 3:05pm Hugo:

The Mothers of Intention?

Great show, but we knew that in advance!
