greetings, tony, and happy tuesday, all!
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 11:55am tonyc:

Hullo dere, James! See you all in 5 minute minutes, everybody.
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 12:02pm SIR LANCELOT PRATT:

Salutations Tony,
I must confess at first gander I thought The Larry Mondello Band were a wedding and Bar Mitzvah celebration dance band!
They gave no hint (at least in name) that they had something of Throbbing Gristle about them.
No good to be too prejudicial. Must be sitting round the castle look at old armour suits!
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 12:03pm Tony Coulter:

Greetings, Sir L!
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 12:08pm SIR LANCELOT PRATT:

WKCR? When were you DJ on that station and are there any playists and archives for that period?
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 12:09pm SIR LANCELOT PRATT:

oh yes start with a bang!
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 12:10pm glenn:

t.g. as a wedding band? that'd be kinda great actually.
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 12:11pm Tony Coulter:

@ Sir LP: Was on KCR for years, from '84 or '85 up until around 2008. Meaning I was on both FMU and KCR at the same time for many years. Not a single KCR archive exists -- they didn't have any kind of archiving system.
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 12:11pm Tony Coulter:

Hey Glenn!
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 12:11pm SIR LANCELOT PRATT:

the wedding guests would have to be really doped up on high grade peyote to dance to T.G.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/5/13 12:13pm listener james from westwood:

that's what the cocktail hour is for!
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 12:13pm Tony Coulter:

No track titles on this Klang Association tape, by the way.
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 12:14pm SIR LANCELOT PRATT:

T.G. did have an album called 20 Jazz funk greats though. Having never heard it I would doubt that it sounded anything like Herbie Hancock or Lonnie Listen Smith? But I could be wrong!
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 12:14pm Tony Coulter:

You're not wrong!
Avatar    Tue. 2/5/13 12:15pm Snortley:

Funny thing about the KCR show; I don't recall ever hearing your name mentioned there, though it was obviously you from the voice and music. Then there's that Mad Dog guy confusing things further...
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 12:17pm Tony Coulter:

Hey Snortley! I still get email for the Mad Dog -- even though he spells his name differently -- he spells his last name "Colter."
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 12:18pm SIR LANCELOT PRATT:

Snortley - could have sworn your profile picture just changed colour! Is it you or the high grade stuff I am using!
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 12:20pm Tony Coulter:

And my comments sign-on name just morphed from tonyc to Tony Coulter against my will. Oh well, I'll go with the flow.
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 12:21pm SIR LANCELOT PRATT:

must be the klangers doing it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/5/13 12:23pm Carmichael:

Hey Tony. Half-dead from the flu, but otherwise listening. Wasn't Larry Mondello one of the Beav's friends?
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 12:25pm Tony Coulter:

Hey Carmichael! Feel better soon. Yep, Larry Mondello was the Beaver's pal -- the trouble-making one.
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 12:29pm glenn:

actually, i pretty much hate t.g. i just like the idea.
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 12:29pm Tony Coulter:

If anyone's curious, the three rather sinister-looking cassettes I'm playing today are pictured here (with Mondello on the left): www.facebook.com...
  Tue. 2/5/13 12:29pm MrFab:

Howdy, y'all! Actually Sir Pratt, as I recall, the title track at least to "20 jazz Funk Greats" was indeed a somewhat funky jazzy synth/drum machine kinda thing.

"industrial noise"! There's an '80s term I hadn't heard in ages. Seems that "industrial" at some point came to mean dance music for goths and not this sort of lovely stuff.
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 12:31pm Tony Coulter:

Greetings, MrFab. Yeah, the term industrial has long since been hijacked -- but I'm sticking to my guns, Wax Trax be damned.
Avatar    Tue. 2/5/13 12:32pm BSI:

I am now THE LATE BSI.
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 12:33pm Tony Coulter:

Rest in Pieces, my friend.
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 12:34pm SIR LANCELOT PRATT:

Mr Fab - thought T.G. title was tongue in cheek.
I seem to remember their music being somewhere beyond industrial, Crass gone atmospheric noise!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/5/13 12:34pm listener james from westwood:

even al jourgenson of ministry eventually found that term amusing. in an interview he said, "oh, yes, 'industrial.' 'hey, trent reznor, let's get together and do some spot-welding.'"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/5/13 12:35pm listener james from westwood:

bsi has joined the choir invisible.
Avatar    Tue. 2/5/13 12:35pm BSI:

Agreed, and stay righteous (re: don't let the pouting disco kids scowling through their black bangs rob us of the "industrial" term...well, they have, but anyway...)
Avatar    Tue. 2/5/13 12:37pm BSI:

Rather like... many of us making bedroom psych & experimental tape sounds in the 80s called it "noise" as a term of endearment, more than a descriptive thing. Much of it wasn't "noise" in the genre sense, just self-indulgent good fun.
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 12:37pm Mary Wing:

I didn't know you were on KCR simultaneously, Tony. You double-dipper DJ, you! :-) How'd you pull that off?
Avatar    Tue. 2/5/13 12:37pm BSI:

This Klang is tops, btw
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 12:39pm Tony Coulter:

Hey Mary!! Believe it or not, I was on three stations for a couple of years: FMU. KCR, and NYC. The only explanation is that I am insane.
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 12:39pm Tony Coulter:

@ BSI: Glad you like it. Recorded live in a Queens bar (or something).
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 12:40pm SIR LANCELOT PRATT:

Tony, was it the same show on both stations or did you prepare completely different shows.
If so pray tell us what were the differences in philosophy between the two shows.
Was there more freedom on KCR say, or did they demand you play some top 20 shit as well?
Avatar    Tue. 2/5/13 12:42pm BSI:

ah, now i need to dig out my Mondo Cane VHS and dust it off...
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 12:43pm Tony Coulter:

@ SIR LP: Completely different shows. The KCR one was all experimental modern classical stuff.
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 12:44pm SIR LANCELOT PRATT:

is the station still going?
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 12:45pm Tony Coulter:

Yep, it is.
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 12:48pm Mary Wing:

Wow, that's dedication! And what did you play on WNYC?
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 12:48pm Tony Coulter:

@ Sir LP: It's not a freeform station -- it's divided into "departments": jazz, new music, world music, etc.
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 12:51pm Tony Coulter:

@ Mary Wing: Just your standard classical stuff -- did it for the money, to be honest. Though it was fun to fill in for David Garland.
Avatar    Tue. 2/5/13 12:51pm BSI:

This is great stuff, vintage '87... I don't suppose you have any of the old New Carrollton cassettes in your vast archive? (mid-late 80s DC area collective) -- some of that stuff might be prime "tape hiss" material. They were prolific little buggers.
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 12:52pm Tony Coulter:

@ Mary Wing: I was only ever a fill-in at NYC, but was on quite a bit for a while there.
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 12:53pm Tony Coulter:

@ BSI: Never hoid of New Carrollton. Sorry!
  Tue. 2/5/13 12:55pm MrFab:

So Tony, did YOU ever make any music? Come on, cough it up!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/5/13 12:55pm northguineahills:

I'm around here somewhere, let me look....
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 12:55pm Tony Coulter:

@ MrFab: Ages ago. That well is good and dry by now.
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 12:56pm Tony Coulter:

NGH! I think I see you coming 'round the corner....
Avatar    Tue. 2/5/13 12:58pm BSI:

a veritable cthulhu of wolf-noses...!
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 12:58pm Mary Wing:

I'm really liking this tape! I missed the beginning of the show, but did you say where you got/found this?
Avatar    Tue. 2/5/13 12:59pm BSI:

well, to put it in perspective, tony:
New Carrollton was to Psychodrama, what nitrogen is to duct tape.
...that sums it up nicely.
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 1:00pm Tony Coulter:

@ Mary Wing: The band sent it to me a million years ago, before I was on FMU (for me to play on KCR). I don't think it ever came out.
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 1:02pm Tony Coulter:

And I'm not sure, actually, if they ever released anything -- there's a recent-ish label called Klang Association, but I don't think they're connected.
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 1:07pm Tony Coulter:

By the way, this side of the tape ends as abruptly as side A -- so don't worry that your computer is crashing.
Avatar    Tue. 2/5/13 1:07pm BSI:

digging it with gusto.
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 1:09pm Tony Coulter:

Yeah, somebody should release this thing.
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 1:11pm Tony Coulter:

I may put a bit on my next marathon premium, which is going to be all unreleased stuff.

Hurray for links showing up as real links in the comments! (Thanks, Kenzo.)
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 1:34pm Tony Coulter:

Has Larry driven everyone away?
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 1:36pm SIR LANCELOT PRATT:

trust me to think all this time that Larry Mondello was something like Manhattan Transfer!
Well you can't tell anything by a name, more like the Butthole's Asylum Choir!
Avatar    Tue. 2/5/13 1:37pm BSI:

neh! That Grendel track was the bee's bloomers!
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 1:37pm Tony Coulter:

Larry didn't mean to be naughty...
Avatar    Tue. 2/5/13 1:38pm BSI:

...and I mean "bloomers" not in the biblical sense. Whatever the hell that would mean.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/5/13 1:39pm Uncle Michael:

Hello drumheads.
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 1:39pm Tony Coulter:

Hey there, Uncle Michael!
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 1:42pm SIR LANCELOT PRATT:

If there is such a thing as a 'noise scene' then you would have to say Nurse with Wound are the leading proponants. - Discuss!
Avatar    Tue. 2/5/13 1:43pm BSI:

a certain "walter westinghouse" vibe just there...
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 1:44pm Tony Coulter:

@ BSI: There's definitely some Residents influence on Larry!
  Tue. 2/5/13 1:45pm Eddie Haskell:

"Thanks Mr. Cleaver/Coulter for taking it easy on the Beaver."
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 1:46pm Tony Coulter:

@ Sir LP: NWW are great for sure -- don't know if I'd say any band/person is the leading proponent. There are so many flavors of noise....
Avatar    Tue. 2/5/13 1:46pm BSI:

Sir LP: Dunno about "noise" as such: I'd call NWW more like a modern Dadaist thing; from the cut-ups (Sylvie & Babs album) to the more freaked-out lounge music appropriations (Bacteria Magnet) ... heck, they're all over the map. Some dynamite drone material as well... All great, naturally.
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 1:46pm Tony Coulter:

You're welcome, Eddie!!
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 1:47pm SIR LANCELOT PRATT:

perhaps their list is even more famous than their music.
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 1:51pm Tony Coulter:

I wouldn't call NWW "noise" either, actually. Noise to me is stuff like Merzbow. I'm most drawn to NWW's collage/cut-up stuff.
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 1:51pm SIR LANCELOT PRATT:

what one might call drill and bass music?
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 1:53pm Tony Coulter:

Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 1:56pm SIR LANCELOT PRATT:

which was the band that use saw, drill and cut the stage up in their live performance?
was it Laidbach or Einzubeinubaten?
  Tue. 2/5/13 1:59pm MrFab:

Why is the notice that this show is now aring banished to the bottom of the FMU homepage?
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 2:01pm Tony Coulter:

Dunno -- think that might be a random event. It has happened before. Blame the computer gods, not any mere mortals.
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 2:02pm SIR LANCELOT PRATT:

Mr Fab - so those with serious dementia don't accidently start listening!
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 2:03pm Tony Coulter:

@ Sir LP: Einst├╝rzende Neubauten have been known to be fond of a drill now and again....

Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 2:07pm Tony Coulter:

The Beave would be proud.
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 2:08pm SIR LANCELOT PRATT:

this is the sort of music to acompany aversion therapy or chemical castration! you know to take your mind off things for a while.
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 2:09pm Tony Coulter:

... but not wedding music, as you thought?
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 2:11pm SIR LANCELOT PRATT:

not a traditional anyway!
may be to a Father Yod ceremony - marrying several girls at once and mating them publicly!
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 2:12pm Tony Coulter:

Have to 'fess up: I've never seen "Leave It to Beaver."
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 2:13pm Tony Coulter:

For more than a minute or two, that is.
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 2:15pm Mary Wing:

I like this tape also, but I was hoping to hear more static, heh.
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 2:16pm Tony Coulter:

You're right, Mary! There's very little static cling.
  Tue. 2/5/13 2:23pm MrFab:

"Leave It to Beaver", "Brady Bunch," "Father knows Best," "8 is Enough" - yeah, never watched any of 'em. I was living in boring American suburbia, why watch it on TV? Esp. when I could be watching "Speed Racer" or "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea" or sumthin!
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 2:29pm Tony Coulter:

Same here: "Beaver Knows Best," "8 Is a Bunch" -- never watched any of them.
Avatar Tue. 2/5/13 2:31pm Tony Coulter:

I did watch "Father Knows Beaver," though....
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/5/13 2:31pm Uncle Michael:

You name it...I watched it. I'm not proud.
  Tue. 2/5/13 2:33pm MrFab:

"Father Knows Beaver"? I think Ron Jeremy was in that one...
