Darn, so many people chimed in, I can't even copy-paste common's salutational comment.

I love dead air, even when Ken does it intentionally.

Hello everyone!
Does "Grass Above My Head" mean "I'm dead and comfortable in the grave"?
Avatar Fri. 11/22/13 9:18am Scott McDowell:

Ken asked me if it was intentional..haha

So I have had lower back pain all week and just this morning I am debating whether or not to take muscle relaxers. This set confirms it: Yes. Great stuff, Scott.

B23 here. Hello Scott! Hello WFMU Friendship Society. Sorry I am late but I had an overwhelming need to listen to The Swan's - Children of God this morning and had to get it out of my system.
Avatar Fri. 11/22/13 9:42am tim from champaign:

Fair enough, Scott.
Avatar Fri. 11/22/13 9:43am tim from champaign:

Oh wow, I saw Daniel Bachman on Tuesday night. He played at a little art gallery in Champaign. He was amazing. His guitar tone sounded so good.
Avatar    Fri. 11/22/13 9:43am Cecile:

hiya polk, all!
Avatar    Fri. 11/22/13 9:44am Cecile:

any relation to Randy Bachman (who is a fine fingerstyle guitarist in his own right)?
Avatar Fri. 11/22/13 9:46am Scott McDowell:

not apparently.
Avatar Fri. 11/22/13 9:47am northguineahills:

Thanks Scott! When I get to the office, I'll turn over to Doug. Old school Fridays were so hard to choose. Salud!

never heard this version of we travel... sounds pretty cool

love fri mornings with TLR
Avatar    Fri. 11/22/13 9:49am Cecile:

I am unsure about where they are travelling to. ;)
Avatar    Fri. 11/22/13 9:50am Cecile:

oh, jeez! Now that I have work wi-fi, I can now listen to the GTS stream during the day. Wow. Shit just got real.
  Fri. 11/22/13 9:54am mb:

Oh man. That Sun Ra hit the spot. Never heard that vers. So soothing and life affirming after hearing your theme song skip earlier. That was disturbing.
  Fri. 11/22/13 9:56am as:

scott at the record fair you should look for a copy of jackie mclean's hipnosis, I actually found it a couple years ago as a double lp blue note release from the late '70s paired with a '62 session w/ sonny clark
Avatar Fri. 11/22/13 9:57am Scott McDowell:

Yes!
Avatar Fri. 11/22/13 9:58am Scott McDowell:

I tried to play a file from my computer today and for some reason my computer wouldn't play. So I have a skipping CD, a CD-r burn that also skips, and a computer that won't play. Vinyl is the clear answer. Finally.
Avatar Fri. 11/22/13 9:59am doca:

that only confirms that vinyl rules, scott
Avatar    Fri. 11/22/13 10:00am DCE:

pfft, technology, amirite?
Avatar Fri. 11/22/13 10:03am Polk Biggins:

Love Hamid Drake. It is SO hard to keep up with that free jazz scene. So many great releases on so many labels.
Avatar Fri. 11/22/13 10:05am tim from champaign:

@ Polk - I've been fortunate enough to have seen Hamid Drake play twice this year.
Avatar Fri. 11/22/13 10:05am doca:

I had an ambientalist impulse a few days ago and I thought if the vinyl resurgence does not means that music fans are getting even more oil dependent than before? I mean, I want the planet to get rid off in some way of non-clean fuel, and only now I realized this has an impact upon my buying and listening habits. I thought I was saving the world buying vinyls.
Avatar Fri. 11/22/13 10:06am doca:

the last sentence was kinda ironic, obviously.
  Fri. 11/22/13 10:08am van:

oh, hey
Avatar Fri. 11/22/13 10:09am Polk Biggins:

@tim from champaign Nice! The last cool free jazz set I caught was Matthew Shipp + William Parker. Really intense.
Avatar Fri. 11/22/13 10:09am Andrew Waterloo:

@doca, sorry doca. if you really want to save the world digital is the only way to go.
Avatar    Fri. 11/22/13 10:10am bobdoesthings:

hmm digging this!
Avatar Fri. 11/22/13 10:11am doca:

@Andrew: <o>
Avatar Fri. 11/22/13 10:11am doca:

@Andrew: but there's the fuel-cost to generate electrical power to keep the computers up and running, not to mention fabricating them. I guess I'll just stick to vinyl whenever I can.
Avatar Fri. 11/22/13 10:12am Andrew Waterloo:

@Polk, I was blown away by Matthew Shipp when I saw him with Darious Jones a couple years ago.
Avatar    Fri. 11/22/13 10:12am common:

hello guitars! holy shit!
Avatar Fri. 11/22/13 10:13am tim from champaign:

Hey Andrew - I got the answer for you about repairing record jackets. I'll dig it up and post it in a second.
Avatar    Fri. 11/22/13 10:14am Ike:

@B23@9:41, I heard a strange noise. It was… screaming. Some kind of screaming, like a child's voice. I went downstairs, outside. I crept up into the barn. I was so scared to look inside, but I had to. I saw... apostrophes. And they were screaming. All the apostrophes you've abused lately! HAVE THE APOSTROPHES STOPPED SCREAMING, B23?
Avatar Fri. 11/22/13 10:14am doca:

I suggested my by now girlfriend to see Matthew Shipp when she lived in Lisbon last year. She didn't knew it and said she didn't even thought music like that could exist. I enjoyed the way she spoke of it.
Avatar    Fri. 11/22/13 10:15am Ike:

First I tried to free the apostrophes. I… I opened the gate to their pen, but they wouldn't run. They just stood there, confused. They wouldn't run. ...I took one apostrophe, and I ran away as fast as I could. I thought, I thought if I could save just one, but… he was so heavy. So heavy.
Avatar    Fri. 11/22/13 10:15am DCE:

everytime I hear Chris Forsyth I love it more
Avatar    Fri. 11/22/13 10:16am DCE:

heavy apostrophes, eh...
Avatar Fri. 11/22/13 10:17am tim from champaign:

Hey Andrew: "For the jacket, just using an Elmer’s glue stick should work. Would use a flat head screwdriver or other flat tool to apply the glue by working it down along the seam. The key here is to then apply enough pressure so that excess glue comes out...wiping it away with a damp paper towel. Then use some heavy objects and place on top of the jacket so the glue dries (probably could use something like office binder clips as well, but these may not provide equal pressure along the entire edge)."
Avatar Fri. 11/22/13 10:17am Andrew Waterloo:

@tim, 1000 thousands thanks for remembering
Avatar Fri. 11/22/13 10:19am Polk Biggins:

@Andrew Waterloo @doca Seeing Shipp is a revelation. He elevates piano playing to some kind of primordial art.
Avatar Fri. 11/22/13 10:21am doca:

@Polk: I wish I have already seen him, unfortunately I never went abroad and he never came to Brazil (or to Porto Alegre). I've seen Ken Vandermark, Mats Gustafsson and Peter Brötzmann thought. But that's a short list for a free jazz enthusiast
Avatar Fri. 11/22/13 10:23am braveness23:

@Ike, I've been on prednisone for 2 1/2 months now. THE APOSTROPHES HAVEN'T STOPPED SCREAMING EVEN FOR A MINUTE!!!

Avatar    Fri. 11/22/13 10:30am DCE:

yeah, I hope Bryce had time to put together a little tribute to Bernard for today's show
Avatar Fri. 11/22/13 10:31am doca:

@Polk: only now I realized I have seen 3/10 of the Chicago Tentet. Chicago is a place I would like to visit, I guess.
Avatar    Fri. 11/22/13 10:34am Kurt Gottschalk:

nice to have you visiting fridays! sorry i won't be out there to see you in person.

Avatar Fri. 11/22/13 10:39am Scott McDowell:

Cheeers Kurt will see you at the fair this eve.
Avatar Fri. 11/22/13 10:41am tim from champaign:

@doca - you should definitely visit Chicago. The jazz scene is pretty dang impressive. There's lots of world class jazz musicians, regular performances, lots of support and most importantly the shows are usually affordable. $5-$10.
Avatar    Fri. 11/22/13 10:43am I.K.E. (Ice King Enterprises):

@B23, is prednisone that bad? I'm wondering if I'm inevitably headed to there. Just UC here, not Crhn's... so far.
Avatar Fri. 11/22/13 10:43am doca:

@tim: *.*
Avatar Fri. 11/22/13 10:47am braveness23:

@I.K.E. Prednisone is a miracle drug that has saved my life repeatedly and it makes me completely batshit crazy. Being on a large dose makes me act like a coke addict and then tapering down and trying to get off of it makes me act like... well, a coke addict. The fact that I still have friends after 2 1/2 months of being on this shit really says something about my friends.
Avatar    Fri. 11/22/13 10:50am DCE:

Scott can see our faces!
Avatar Fri. 11/22/13 10:51am tim from champaign:

@doca - also check listings for gigs in the Chicago Reader for when you're in the mood to drool over awesome shows. www.chicagoreader.com...
Avatar    Fri. 11/22/13 10:53am fred:

"outremer" means "beyond the sea". Its most common use in france is to refer to islands still controlled by france, remnants of its colonial empire
Avatar Fri. 11/22/13 10:55am Andrew Waterloo:

I believe another appropriate translation for outremer would be overseas.
Avatar    Fri. 11/22/13 10:58am Ken From Hyde Park:

Good show today. I must bust out from home and head to work now. Will listen on 90.1 FM if the signal is strong enough for the car antenna. Have a good weekend.

@tim: I went out of the comment board so I do not get depressed on all the shows I'm missing eheh does anyone can offer me a good paying job so I can go to Chicago? In time, thanks for the tip, I like to keep up with shows from the places where the music I listen comes from
Avatar Fri. 11/22/13 11:03am Scott McDowell:

Got a phone call that Outremer means "Ultramarine" and refers to the color pigment t hat was commonly used in renaissance painting! Wow! cool fact.
Avatar Fri. 11/22/13 11:08am doca:

@Scott: those "pure" colors are beautiful, specially on a medieval setting like those of books of hours.

Aw crap. I'm starting to get the Friday squirrelyness. Either too much caffeine or else it must be beersie time.
  Fri. 11/22/13 11:22am tomasz.:

dug that wild jazz you were playing earlier, we were loading boxes of LPs and it was very bracing and motivational

@tim: it's always beersie time somewhere
Avatar Fri. 11/22/13 11:23am dk:

that Sajida Obeid track was nuts. if that's what qualifies as "folk & pop" in iraq, i'd love to hear their idea of "face-melting psych freakout".

Wild, right? It almost seems fake!

@ Dean - Did Paal NL have a magic bag of percussive items which he pulled from throughout the set?
Avatar Fri. 11/22/13 11:49am Chris from DC:

Seen him a few times, what a great drummer.
  Fri. 11/22/13 11:49am Sandy in Houston:

that Death Rattle thing is the best thing I've heard in a while. I got a Death Rattle guitar pedal from Henry Kaiser I wonder if it is named for that?
  Fri. 11/22/13 11:53am doca:

Thanks once again, Scott, I hope you'll be back on the new schedule
  Fri. 11/22/13 11:53am Dean:

@tim - Maybe so. At one point for a stretch PB held back and PN-L shuffled his bare hands and a random object or two over the skins.
Avatar Fri. 11/22/13 11:54am tim from champaign:

Yeah, that sounds about right, Dean.
