Present for a short while - but in the shower...
- even if get streaming succesfully @ Work sometime - not sure how FMU UneasyListeningFriday would go down in the Thrift Store...could be an interesting experiment...

very daft punky. Hey all. I'm out the door....seeya later
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 9:21am ausmanx:

news of the week over here was Daft Punk announcing they're going to do global release of their new album at the annual Wee Waa Show, Wee Waa being a small sheep farming town in north west NSW with a population of 2000, about seven hours drive from Sydney. weird
  Fri. 4/12/13 9:38am common:

a dead song i actually like.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 9:41am Cheri Pi:

I like their feedback piece, until I heard it I thought I'd never like them.

hi Cecile, hi CP; Ranga! great stuff.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 9:52am Cheri Pi:

hmmmm. I need this Rangda Dead C split fiercly.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 9:53am Cheri Pi:

Heya DCE
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 9:53am Cecile:

Wow. that sounds awesome ausmanx. I love it when people play in tiny places. Like Alan Parsons playing in my hometown because a Houghton boy sang on one of his albums.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 9:53am tim from champaign:

I'll say I don't mind the Dead. I do own Oaxamaxao which I dig. I feel they're kinda lightweight in the cosmic psych area. I do enjoy telling people I like the Dead because it typically bums people out.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 9:55am Cheri Pi:

I'm cool with it now Tim, now that I can relate to the one song.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 9:57am tim from champaign:

I actually think Feedback was my entre too.

I also like telling Dead haters that Black Flag were into the Grateful Dead.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 9:57am Cecile:

I don't get bummed out about people liking the Dead. I just don't want to be converted forcibly to liking them, like some of my acquaintances wanted to do.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 9:58am tim from champaign:

Grateful Dead C.

OK, I'm done.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 9:58am Cheri Pi:

I'm just into the one song tho- I can't take any of the rest.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 9:58am Andrew Waterloo:

Henry Rollins was in Black Flag, isn't that enough to take away the hero worship?
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 9:59am Cecile:

Hammerin' Hank has some of the broadest taste of anyone who came up thru punk rock.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 10:00am braveness23:

I don't have any contempt for the Dead but like Jimmy Buffet I think they are a phenomena that I just don't "get" and that isn't really driven by the music but by some other sort of bond. I'm on the outside looking in and am content to so hang out somewhere where I do "get it".
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 10:00am Chris from DC:

Don't mind the Dead, just literally can't understand the people I know who listen to nothing but.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 10:01am Cecile:

Chris, right. Or people who just listen to SY. Or Frank Zappa. or....
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 10:02am DCE:

I have liked the Dead since I was a little kid, but never saw any reason to restrict my worldview like so many "Deadheads".
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 10:02am ausmanx:

i think i could favourite just about ev'rything played so far today, but midnight approaches so it's time to leave work... good evening all
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 10:04am tim from champaign:

Yep, I'm leery of people who say they dig music but just listen to one narrow aspect of music. Like John Brannon said "There was music before hardcore and music after hardcore."
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 10:04am Andrew Waterloo:

I can understand band devotee'ism. It's an identity thing. I just don't understand how loving one band so much doesn't lead to other things.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 10:04am PKNY:

OH HELL YES! Good call on the Alice!
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 10:05am rsj:

really great show
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 10:05am stingy d:

yea kid! i'm with pkny
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 10:05am Andrew Waterloo:

Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 10:05am Cecile:

hahahaha. true. I remember John coming in to Wazoo and buying blues cassettes after Negative Approach broke up.

Hey, got shipbuilding by Robert Wyatt?
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 10:05am Cheri Pi:

I still don't get CCR but if they're good enough for my beloved D.Boone & Cecile that's good enough for me.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 10:06am Chris from DC:

Andrew, exactly on devotee'ism.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 10:08am Cheri Pi:

give me freeform, or give me death.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 10:09am Cecile:

most people want fewer choices. Once they stumble across a band that fits them, they don't need to keep exploring.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 10:09am Andrew Waterloo:

CCR is basically your proto-shoegazer-country music that ocassionally loses it's way and does blues.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 10:10am DCE:

Alice Coltrane...damn
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 10:10am Cecile:

Or I see it as a fusion of great roots music overlaid by Fogerty's great plainspoken lyrics.
  Fri. 4/12/13 10:11am Ralphine:

There's a Remax house-for-sale sign in my neighborhood that shows Henry Rollins as the realtor. I wonder if it's the same guy.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 10:11am Jennique:

Actually drove a car to work today, so I listened to WFMU on the car radio and now streaming on-line.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 10:12am Cecile:

"Equity is my girlfriend."
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 10:12am Cheri Pi:

Heya Jennique :)
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 10:13am stingy d:

i was always bigger on alice than john, does that make me a something?
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 10:13am PKNY:

That's a killer lineup on that Alice track. Pharoah Sanders is that dude.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 10:16am Rev. Turnip Druid:

Peace be with you.

penderecki and cherry... what a wild idea...
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 10:17am Rev. Turnip Druid:

Oh kingsize awesome happy clappy. Just in time for the Don Cherry/Penderecki jam...
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 10:17am stingy don cherry:

this is my type of shit right here
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 10:17am Cheri Pi:

Welcome. Lettuce prey.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 10:17am Andrew Waterloo:

I find most people are ambivalent about music just as they are ambivalent about sports or politics. But, they're not ambivalent about participating in the conversation so they have their team, their party, and their band and a handful of talking points.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 10:19am Rev. Turnip Druid:

[bursts in, Bukowski style] ... ASPARAGUS WIGS FOR ALL... MY .. FRIENNNNDS...
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 10:19am Cheri Pi:

Why have I not purchased vol.4 yet? (not sabbath)
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 10:20am Fine-aight:

What a great way to put it, Andrew. Sup y'all.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 10:20am Andrew Waterloo:

Did you see that ludicrous display last night?
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 10:20am Cheri Pi:

Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 10:21am tim from champaign:

Cheri, are you talking about Dick's Picks Vol. 4?
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 10:22am Cheri Pi:

hahahahaha. that too TfC.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 10:22am stingy d:

dag. this humus just keep getting betta
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 10:23am Andrew Waterloo:

This is good conversation, but I think my productivity was much higher when I was asleep.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 10:30am Cheri Pi:

Leslie Waldron?
  Fri. 4/12/13 10:36am blob:

What is the background music?
  Fri. 4/12/13 10:39am Fredericks:

blob: Aphex Twin
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 10:39am rsj:

humus always does that
speaking of which
finally, i am planning on going all humus next week, or all work week...
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 10:39am rsj:

aphex twin is the perfect palette cleanser

this here is like a can of bees

going into a trance
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 10:45am ranjit:

open can of bees? or still sealed and fresh?
  Fri. 4/12/13 10:53am Adam in Portland and Lynnwood:

This accompaniment would have made Tusk a much better song, in my opinion.
  Fri. 4/12/13 10:55am Livin on reds, vitamin c and cocaine:

Good question!
  Fri. 4/12/13 10:56am Adam in Portland and Lynnwood:

Scott, free me! All I can do is sway!
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 11:03am Mike East:

Ok I'm back. What'd I miss?
  Fri. 4/12/13 11:09am Jim B:

Bhattacharya is kind of illustrating Peter Walker's observations about the connections between India and the Spanish tradtion.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 11:13am Cheri Pi:

ooooo I have this album, that's a killer cover
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 11:21am Cheri Pi:

Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 11:21am Andrew Waterloo:

I would die if that was white vinyl.
  Fri. 4/12/13 11:22am Rx Scabin:

My phone turned in WFMU by itself: smartphone.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 11:24am Rev. Turnip Druid:

Definitely need that Don Cherry item on vinyl. Found a japanese CD re-ish a while back, love it...
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 11:27am Cheri Pi:

This is my brain...on drugs.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 11:29am Andrew Waterloo:

I just pinged my guy about it.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 11:33am Stanley:

I'll take the reds, man.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 11:35am tim from champaign:

Thanks for the great jams all show, Scott.
Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 11:35am Cecile:

Avatar Fri. 4/12/13 11:36am tim from champaign:

Oh cool! I recently picked up "Fresh" and "Small Talk". Those have moved to the top of my favorite Sly albums.
  Fri. 4/12/13 11:36am shining:

poor Sly...

More like GARCIAlaria, am I right??
  Mon. 4/29/13 4:49am MatthewKoshak:

Scott, I'm a bit late on this as I've been on tour for a few weeks now, Coachella and all that meh... Just have to say that, for me, this is one of the best shows of all time. every track smokin my man. Can't believe how cool Orient looks as a twelve inch. And I thought my glossy-cardboard CD version was hot! Ant-Egg lookin great!!! Sounding even better! With love from Bushwick!
