The lazy calm at the week's start. A few live performances included, but mainly music with an ear tilted toward string-driven things. (Visit homepage.)

Live performance by Lorraine Leckie and her Demons
  Claiming to be born on a horse in Ontario, Lorraine began her rock'n'roll life as a makeup artist, marrying Steve Leckie of the Viletones along the way. Leckie became the Lower East Side folk noir troubadour playing venues such as Bowery Ballroom, Webster Hall & Mercury Lounge, often joined by her gothic rock band the Demons. Her most recent album, "Rudely Interrupted," is a collaboration with writer Anthony Haden-Guest creepily veering between dark and deliciously menacing tunes. Lorraine Leckie and her Demons descended on WFMU's Love Room to play live.

I want to see Kylie. I would pay stupid money to see her.

This is Kylie Minogue on vocals, right?
Avatar    Mon. 4/15/13 12:05pm Cecile:

it is!

Hi everyone! Irene, you're making my day with wild rose. Saw Nick and the Bad Seeds in SF last week and I'm still high on the show.
  Mon. 4/15/13 12:06pm Mark:

Irene, the Waltzing Cat is NUTS! Perused your recommended albums--I couldn't love it more if I'd written it myself! I moved here from Ann Arbor last fall and my friends at WCBN recommended WFMU, and I've been loving you ever since...Happy Monday to all!
  Mon. 4/15/13 12:06pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

@Cecile, you have answered my question
Avatar    Mon. 4/15/13 12:07pm Cecile:

Mark, I am an old CBNer and Michigan grad, and love Ann Arbot as well.

Irene, are you a Pell Mell fan? The Portland instrumental band, I mean.

lovely song! i heard it for the first time the other day and forgot about it - so happy to hear it again!

Cool Cecile, hi! Nice to meet you.

nice to meet you too, Mark!

Always nice to meet someone with a tombstone for an icon.

Faithfull sounds pretty darn good as a chanteuse.
Avatar Mon. 4/15/13 12:18pm doca:

hello irene, cecile and all listeners. i've just finished watching that scott walker doc filmed by the time of the recording of the drift, great to find out the similarities between walker and edith piaf.
Avatar    Mon. 4/15/13 12:20pm Parq:

Rob t, if this is what I think it is, a track from "20th Century Blues", the whole album is exactly what you would expect from an album of Marianne Faithful singing Wiemar-era songs in a Paris nightclub. Exactly.
Avatar    Mon. 4/15/13 12:20pm Cecile:

doca, I respect his work, but I'm sure I would be giggling through the whole thing.
Avatar    Mon. 4/15/13 12:21pm Cecile:

ITA, Parq, and it is amazing.
She does everyone from Brecht to Nilsson.
Avatar Mon. 4/15/13 12:21pm rob t:

@Parq: Interesting. Thanks for the info!
Avatar    Mon. 4/15/13 12:22pm Mike East:

good afternoon ladies and gents.
Avatar Mon. 4/15/13 12:22pm doca:

@cecile: giggling? i would be scared. but i was kidding about their resemblances actually.
Avatar    Mon. 4/15/13 12:23pm Cecile:

No, I mean apart from a handful of tracks, most of Scott Walker's work makes me kind of laugh. That deep serious voice and totally batshit crazy lyrics.
Avatar    Mon. 4/15/13 12:24pm Cecile:

but then again, the same could be said for Captain Beefheart.
Avatar    Mon. 4/15/13 12:25pm Parq:

Cile, I donwanna go overboard in saying that album is totally Marianne Faithful, but the first time I listened to the CD, it stopped halfway though to take a cigarette break.
  Mon. 4/15/13 12:27pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Brian Ferry, nice
Avatar    Mon. 4/15/13 12:27pm Cecile:

this is lovely.

Enjoying this Brian Ferry quite a lot, and looking forward to Lorraine Leckie!!
Avatar    Mon. 4/15/13 12:34pm Hoboken Jack:

and kind of a different sound for Hitchcock--nice!!

hey Irene
Avatar    Mon. 4/15/13 12:38pm Van in DC:

at 1 PM? the live show?
Avatar Mon. 4/15/13 12:43pm Irene Trudel:

Hi everybody! Just finished soundchecking Lorraine Leckie & Her Demons. Yes, 1pm for the live set.
Avatar Mon. 4/15/13 12:45pm rob t:

quick question: is this typical Alasdair Roberts?
Avatar Mon. 4/15/13 12:47pm Irene Trudel:

Yes, Alasdair is sort of in the Fairport/trad-folk vein and this is a typical sound for him. One of these days I'll have him back if I can coordinate the next time he's here.
Avatar Mon. 4/15/13 12:48pm rob t:

nice! thanks Irene.
Avatar    Mon. 4/15/13 12:55pm Brian in UK:

Scott Walker = sonorous. Never understood why he did not revert back to Engel if the limelight was too bright.
Avatar    Mon. 4/15/13 12:56pm Mike East:

thanks for the Jeff Buckley!
  Mon. 4/15/13 12:57pm eddy in australia:

Spooky! I had *just* finished reading this story as the Jeff Buckley song began: http://www.rocksbackpages.com/Library/Article/our-glorious-spring-jeff-buckley
Avatar    Mon. 4/15/13 12:58pm Brian in UK:

Just been listening to Tom Brosseau in the car. He has a special voice like Jeff B & does not work the verse/chorus line like so many.
Avatar Mon. 4/15/13 1:00pm Andrew Waterloo:

@Brian, Scott Walker seems to have the best of both worlds. Lots of freedom to record, and very few interviews and live appearances to promote it.
Avatar    Mon. 4/15/13 1:00pm Van in DC:

So, I'm listening to the show but not able to pay attention to the comments / playlist...I took today off work to do my taxes at the last minute...this is exactly the FMU show I need to ease me through the pain!
Avatar    Mon. 4/15/13 1:06pm Brian in UK:

@Andrew I agree he seems to be in a unique position; just thought he might have wanted to separate that popular persona from the seemingly esoteric one.
Avatar    Mon. 4/15/13 1:11pm Cecile:

a tremendous fashion designer. Comitted suicide.
Avatar    Mon. 4/15/13 1:12pm Cecile:

Hello all Trudelites! Just came back to the office after listening to the show in the hazy sunshine outside. Def preferable environment for Irene!

hot rod was the best choice friday morning for a perfect friday night.
Avatar    Mon. 4/15/13 1:37pm Van in DC:

Sounding good on this end!

@Van still missed the Danish last Friday.

You can see AM's influence in shoes nowadays.

Ken Nordine at 92 and Oscar Brand at 93 host weekly radio shows. In Brand's case, he has been doing it continuously since 1946.

that's awesome, don. It keeps you young!

John McLaughlin, awesome

@Brian @1:40 - oh no! I'll bring more next time! :)

Sad news about Dean Drummond. Can you give us more information?
It's not on google...
  Mon. 4/15/13 2:49pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

This is a lovely track

@Jan: It *is* strange that no one's updated his faculty page or his wiki article --

WOW. this is Eitzel's best song in a while.
  Mon. 4/15/13 2:58pm Sean in Bristol, UK:

Thanks for a great show, Irene, have a great week everyone.
Avatar    Mon. 4/15/13 3:00pm Van in DC:

Thanks for a great show Irene!
Avatar Mon. 4/15/13 3:00pm Irene Trudel:

I know Don! Both are pretty amazing. I know Oscar from my WNYC work and have been to his house in L.I. He's a bit senile now but still doing Folksong Festival every week.

As for Dean Drummond, info has been a bit sketchy. It's reported that he's passed due to complications from Multiple Myeloma.
