hey greetings dave, what's your pleasure?
Avatar    Sun. 11/10/13 9:50pm Dave Mandl:

Hey Cheri and everyone. Busy with my guests here, but I'll join you in a bit.
Avatar    Sun. 11/10/13 9:54pm David L.B. is RRN63:

...or, put it another way (?) - the songwriting & the somewhat unusual architecture/arranging are blended in a surprising but semaless way...Well - I like it whether I make sense or not! : ) ...
Avatar    Sun. 11/10/13 9:56pm David L.B. is RRN63:

...'seamless'
- various comparisons have drifted past my mind - Beefheart, Devo, Talking Heads, XTC, Flesheaters
...you know what they say about comparisons!...

Thanks, guests!

...*I* want the Mellotron w/ SirMacca's voice !...
Avatar    Sun. 11/10/13 10:25pm Dave Mandl:

@DLBRRN63: Make him an offer!
Avatar    Sun. 11/10/13 10:26pm David L.B. is RRN63:

- tried, but it's like money means nothing to that guy!!
Avatar    Sun. 11/10/13 10:33pm Dave Mandl:

Don't believe the hype. How much money can he have? He's just a bass player.
Avatar    Sun. 11/10/13 10:39pm David L.B. is RRN63:

- read that Bill Gates has $72billion
...that 9-figure lottery I dream of - would send my learning-curve to 90°s - it's like he won that 144 times...
Avatar Sun. 11/10/13 10:40pm Droll:

In a typical technology cycle/history repeating itself fashion I downloaded a set of samples of the Mellotron tapes and loaded them into a software sampler. It sounds very authentic: many of the notes are noticeably out of tune and pretty much all the notes end with terrifying pitch and volume warbles. Good stuff!

With all due respect, DM, P-Mac is pretty much the embodiment of my ideal musician: Plays every instrument, every note on the album, and still puts the emphasis on songs, not playing. When I hear P-Mac or Adrian Belew or Prince or Stevie Wonder or Rundgren or any of the cats who play all the instruments, those albums always sound "different". (read: better)
Avatar    Sun. 11/10/13 10:42pm David L.B. is RRN63:

- oh, Mandl's well aware of SirMacca's genius, of course. Even if he only did play bass.
Avatar Sun. 11/10/13 10:44pm Droll:

Nonono!!! He played bass AND drums AND guitar AND keyboards AND sang AND wrote the song! P-Mac is not a "bassist", he is a "musician".
Avatar    Sun. 11/10/13 10:45pm David L.B. is RRN63:

- I said 'even if' - of course that's *unimaginably* reductive.
Avatar    Sun. 11/10/13 10:47pm David L.B. is RRN63:

- as in - a genius on bass *alone*...
Avatar    Sun. 11/10/13 10:51pm Dave Mandl:

@Droll: Yes, I know about all the other instruments. I happen to think he's a Genius musician. I was joking.
  Sun. 11/10/13 10:52pm sweet cheri:

fantastic show tonight dave, nothing beats a great combo than monica & dave mandl!!
Avatar    Sun. 11/10/13 10:53pm Dave Mandl:

@Droll: I'm a bass player, though, so I'm biased.
Avatar    Sun. 11/10/13 10:54pm Dave Mandl:

Merci, S.C.
Avatar    Sun. 11/10/13 10:55pm David L.B. is RRN63:

...or just his singing - or just his songwriting - wunna TheeGreats in all areas
...& then there's even intangibles - like Concepts ('Sgt. Pepper' for example) - & Cultural Significance (Dylan said we should put up statues of TheBeatles)...
Avatar Sun. 11/10/13 10:57pm Droll:

Indeed, Sgt. Pepper is the blueprint for prog rock!
Avatar    Sun. 11/10/13 10:58pm David L.B. is RRN63:

...I mean - he's the Mozart - thee Melodic Genius of Rock.
Avatar    Sun. 11/10/13 10:58pm pacific standard simon:

My perspective is closer to Andy Shernoff's: "June 1st, '67, something died and went to heaven -- I wish Sgt. Pepper NEVER taught the band to play!"
Avatar    Sun. 11/10/13 11:01pm pacific standard simon:

Charlie Haden is one of those musicians who make me wish for a $10000 stereo.
Avatar    Sun. 11/10/13 11:01pm David L.B. is RRN63:

I love Pepper - can't call something 'overproduced' that I can listen to gazillions over decades
- but I think Revolver is better. & the White Album underrated - esp. after 2009 Remasters !
...I like Macca's story that they saw Elvis sent his gold car out on tour instead of touring himself - & Pepper was their attempt @ such a thing! Puts it in perspective ??...

Charlie Haden and my dad...same H.S. band teacher. True.
Avatar    Sun. 11/10/13 11:04pm pacific standard simon:

Your parents are the reason I'm jealous of you, Michael.
Avatar    Sun. 11/10/13 11:05pm David L.B. is RRN63:

...anyhow - just one band, four guys - just 13 short albums over about seven years.
- Charlie had roots in childhood Midwest Country Family Radio - & yet was Ornette's bassist in Free Pioneering...& very forthright Politically - what a guy!!
Avatar    Sun. 11/10/13 11:06pm David L.B. is RRN63:

- always interesting to me that FreeJazz players often had roots in RootsMusic...
Avatar    Sun. 11/10/13 11:09pm Uncle Michael:

Charlie was a kid on the radio well before he went to Central High School in Omaha, yep.
Avatar    Sun. 11/10/13 11:10pm Uncle Michael:

My parents, Simon?
Avatar    Sun. 11/10/13 11:11pm David L.B. is RRN63:

...Charlie Haden's one of those people I would rather hear *talk* about Music - then hear a lot of other people *play* music...
Avatar    Sun. 11/10/13 11:14pm pacific standard simon:

It would be impossible for me to speak with love or respect about my parents. You often do, or so it seems to me.
Avatar Sun. 11/10/13 11:14pm Droll:

UM, I recently exposed myself to two archives of Hinky Dinky Time, I hope you weren't offended. Good show, but not enough prog!
Avatar    Sun. 11/10/13 11:18pm Uncle Michael:

@Simon: Ah, I see.

@Droll: Is there ever enough prog? I mean...anywhere? I'll be upping the prog quotient slightly when I fill in on Tuesday evening for Jesse Kaminsky. I'm glad you found the non-prog non-sucky. Now, please close your raincoat.
Avatar Sun. 11/10/13 11:23pm Droll:

No wonder it was so chilly and drafty in here! Thanks for the tip (no pun intended)!
And there most certainly is a standard for "too much prog": cruisetotheedge.com You will not find my prog rock loving self on any cruise ship with 5,000 proggers playing "Pull My Finger" or "Which Yes lineup is best?" for 7 straight days and nights. Full stop.
Avatar    Sun. 11/10/13 11:24pm pacific standard simon:

@UM - The guy who is filling in for you on Friday has been known to play some prog. And, alas, my work schedule has arrived, and I will have to miss the live broadcast of your Tuesday fill in.
Avatar    Sun. 11/10/13 11:24pm Uncle Michael:

Yeah...that's a level of hell.

Remember, I said "slightly."
Avatar    Sun. 11/10/13 11:25pm David L.B. is RRN63:

...Wh♂SellOut was *their* equivalent of Pepper - but also eulogizing PirateRadio & what was passing; Townshend coined term 'PowerPop' around then to distinguish themselves...but then he coughed up 'Tommy' from the Collective Unconscious...
- For a long time, the talk was Pepper was great, but what it spawned horrible (like blaming Miles Davis for the worst of the Fusion: true - & not true) - but it has company like PinkFloyd's 1st, Zombie's 'Odessey' - & many would rate Love's 'Forever Changes' as actually better-balanced than Pepper...if coming *after* it...
Avatar    Sun. 11/10/13 11:27pm Uncle Michael:

Let's toss Chad and Jeremy's "The Ark" in there.
Avatar    Sun. 11/10/13 11:28pm Uncle Michael:

I'll have to listen to Joe's fill-in for me on the archive. If I could listen live, I'd do the show!
Avatar    Sun. 11/10/13 11:28pm Uncle Michael:

Dave, this is beautiful.

...I'll take an Era of experiments & mistakes - to an era of focus groups & market management & stifling boredom...
Avatar Sun. 11/10/13 11:30pm Droll:

RRN, Why choose? I think it's safe to say we're living in the era of focus groups' mistakes.
Avatar    Sun. 11/10/13 11:30pm pacific standard simon:

The comment, about being for Wm. Turner, DOES seem appropriate. Could be for Whistler, too.
Avatar    Sun. 11/10/13 11:31pm Dave Mandl:

@UM: Thanks.
Avatar    Sun. 11/10/13 11:33pm pacific standard simon:

That could be on the station front page -- "WFMU: A focus group mistake!"
Avatar    Sun. 11/10/13 11:35pm David L.B. is RRN63:

...mistakes by Creative people, Droll
...somebody's profile here quotes John Cleese: 'We don't know where creativity comes from - but we know it's not our laptops.'

Someone needs to play "Hocus Pocus" on bagpipes.
Avatar    Sun. 11/10/13 11:42pm Uncle Michael:

I don't wanna hear a different one. I wanna play that one too.

UM: Haha.
Avatar    Sun. 11/10/13 11:43pm Dave Mandl:

"Focus 3" is a great record, one of my favorites. I play it from time to time.

Avatar Sun. 11/10/13 11:51pm Droll:

Low participation on my part does not indicate a lack of interest. I'm focusing on something, but I just lost focus. What's wrong with Focus? No shame in a yodel according to focus groups.

Isn't that title "bugs" rather than "blues?"
Avatar Sun. 11/10/13 11:57pm Droll:

I sometimes gauge time by station IDs, which is confusing when listening to archives.
Speaking of the time, it looks like we're already entering next week's Final Stretch, so until then, have a fun week, yinz! Thx DM!

Brain Wilson saying he wanted to make Teenage Symphonies to God was the beginning of Prog - a surprisingly straight line from Phil Spector to King Crimson - w/ Brian Wilson's poor brain as the fulcrum point around which the World lost its' innocence...
