"not chaste" isn't all it's cracked up to be, Eartha.

She meant "not chased". Or perhaps she meant it as a double-entendre. Or perhaps you did.

Right Irwin...but we seem to skew, from loose impression...very late, even tail-end apostate boomer.

I'm guessing it's the Boomers that make it possible for WFMU to raise 1.25 million dollars every year.

We're all Boomers at heart here. Deny it and I will disagree with you.

I'm missing "Chunga's Revenge", even though I had/have the LP. Have to rectify that. Was reminded of it by a track played on that Gang-of-Three Drum Spectacular that Irwin participated in a few days ago.

It has a nicely Rambaudian negativity to it - would you say?/Moloch - whose eyes are blind windows
...I am self-described: 'Ovo-Lacto-Vegetarian w/ fondness for (mostly ThriftStore) Black Leather' - so perhaps some parity there...

Another round of DrummerThing, everybody? Three Hours surprisingly short for it.

Avatar Wed. 5/15/13 3:38pm Droll:

If WFMU is dependent on Boomers, either the station needs to double it's popularity or X'ers need to be twice as rich as their parents: en.wikipedia.org...

@rrg: dammit, I missed the Drum Spectacular? Evidently got my dates mixed up. Know where I could find the archive?

There's a link to the archive on Irwin's main playlist page, Caryn.

@Droll: I doubt I'll be around long enough to worry about WFMU's fortunes in the era of falling population.

I'm not sure how Dixon didn't make the cut for the drum showcase. 50 so-so guys? I would deny knowing anything about drums to Mr. DeVore.

A bass-centric show would probably attract 3 listeners, tops. Bass solos suck, I know from what I speak.

World Population *doubled* (already) in my lifetime: more received information...
- I stand corrected - the audio is only on Mandl's Playlist.
- Dixon was featured on a non-Smithereens track. A very good one on which he impressed. Would be honored to hear him as a Host! I learned things about Drummers & Drumming from the first round - wouldn't mind them getting even more Technical - but I don't presume to speak for anyone else there...
...They don't have to be Solos: Drum solos were forbidden on the Show.
- No one cares about John Entwistle? Really??
...Has been suggested: A lot of the Power people credit to Guitar in Rawk is really the Bass...

. o O ( I secretly want to hear a bass-throwdown because bass is my primary instrument, but I can't imagine why anyone else would sit through it. I'm not even sure if FMU has enough bassists for a full panel of DJs. Rock bassists typically suck, most the show would have to be jazz players. )

Avatar Wed. 5/15/13 4:08pm Caryn:

Yeah, I can think of 3-4 rock bass solos I love. Other genres would probably fill things up. A Bass Throwdown would be awesome! (My favourite feature from the 2-disc "The Kids Are Alright" Who DVD set were the two bass-only tracks, btw.)
Avatar Wed. 5/15/13 4:09pm Parq:

By the way, Mandl did a full tribute to Entwhistle when he died. It's one of the first Dave Mandl shows I remember hearing.

I suspect I'd love a Bass Throwdown to be less about bass solos and more about listening to bass-only versions of songs to show what fabulous and essential stuff is going on in the background, usually making the songs what they are.
Avatar Wed. 5/15/13 4:15pm rrg:

I would LOVE that. Pulling out the bass tracks and just playing those.

That Elec Flag track has a great bass track, by the way -- which may well have been the point of playing it.

Avatar Wed. 5/15/13 4:34pm Caryn:

@Matt: nah, it was a VHS release with rehearsal and live footage of them mostly in the 70s and early 80s. Maybe I should try and see if I could find just that live track online.

The Standup Bass & the Electric BassGuitar are notably distinct instruments.

My license plates were stolen once and the state issued two new sets of plates to me. It took three months and 5 letters to convince them I hadn't committed fraud trying to register the same car three times so I could pay all the registration fees three times. They were convinced that's what I was trying to do.

Avatar Wed. 5/15/13 5:02pm Caryn:

Our local clinic changed their queueing system. It used to be: 2 windows, one you queue at if you already have an appointment or just need advice or a refill on a prescription, the other you take a bakery number for and sit down and wait if you need to schedule an appointment. Now, it's: 2 windows, the "queue without a number for set appointments or minor stuff, take a number and sit to get an appointment" stuff is the same, but now, both windows take both kinds of people. So patients are utterly confused which window would be better to queue at, because the windows randomly call people in from the seats, so you could end up waiting half an hour and get passed by 5 people if you're at the head of a queue at one window, while you might be 6th in the other queue but end up at the window faster. Frigging mess.

“I remember one time - it might have been a couple times - at the Fillmore East in 1970, I was opening for this sorry-ass cat named Steve Miller. Steve Miller didn't have his shit going for him, so I'm pissed because I got to open for this non-playing motherfucker just because he had one or two sorry-ass records out. So I would come late and he would have to go on first and then we got there we smoked the motherfucking place, everybody dug it.”

I can pretty well guarantee Steve Allen's deathbed was his sleeping bed. He said, quite credibly, that he slept 11 hrs./day; he must've written music the other 13, though he made it look easy. But ISTR having read that he died in his sleep, with no preceding illness he knew of.

I'm not sure if it's jazz and classical music that are dying, or just their audiences. The recordings will be around in digital form forever but the audiences need to be pickled or mummified.
Avatar Wed. 5/15/13 5:54pm Parq:

I remain kind of amazed that rock music is still so current. Back in the 1970s, I took it for granted that the next generation would come up with something to replace it. Hip hop and dubstep have their adherents, but that hasn't stopped rockers well past age 70 from selling out stadiums.

Parq, At $250/seat bands like The Stones are *NOT* attracting audiences that are accustomed to downloading all their music for free. I don't think a generation that enjoys watching one guy jumping around in front of a laptop is going to give a shit about preserving rock music made by grandparents. The clock is most certainly ticking.
