Mon. 12/9/13 6:05am P-90:
Good morning, F.X.!
Mon. 12/9/13 6:07am Guido (Cologne):
Hi Frank! Hello World!
A sunny day over here, not too cold and ... I'm @ work!
What else is to do on a sunny monday?
Mon. 12/9/13 6:07am fxo:
good, 'n chilly, here in Jersey City.
Morning P-90. hows things bayou?
Mon. 12/9/13 6:08am fxo:
Guido! hows yer day, out there?
Mon. 12/9/13 6:11am P-90:
Columbia U campus was a pleasant winter wonderland overnight, until everything started to melt and get yucky. I blame amEdeo (cuz I can't think of anyone else to blame at the moment)
Mon. 12/9/13 6:16am Guido (Cologne):
be sure: I make my best of it!
Yey! Bacharach, the master himself!
Actually he even can sing!
Reminds me of poor George Meek ...
have all those collectors labels done him justice by pushing his embarrassing demos to the public?
Mon. 12/9/13 6:18am P-90:
@Guido: Do you mean Joe Meek from England? Or...?
Mon. 12/9/13 6:20am Guido (Cologne):
Yes. Joe Meek from england, of Telstar-fame.
Mon. 12/9/13 6:21am fxo:
we're all blameless, eh? ...or blame-ful?
Mon. 12/9/13 6:22am P-90:
and: yeah! Burt B. has never been gotten enough credit for his great singing
Mon. 12/9/13 6:25am fxo:
let's call him an interpreter of his tunes. That covers it.
Mon. 12/9/13 6:28am Guido (Cologne):
Same about the 'Cole Porter sings Cole Porter' recordings.
Mon. 12/9/13 6:30am P-90:
Excellent! Do we know who was speaking about Jazz clubs at the beginning of the track? Thank heaven no one has sampled Phil Schaap in a song....
Mon. 12/9/13 6:32am Guido (Cologne):
By the way "Dark Was The Night" by Kronos Quartett was pretty awesome. I admire them anyway, but this is another surprise. Never heard about this 4AD-comp..
Mon. 12/9/13 6:32am P-90:
Noel Coward singing Noel Coward is another noteworthy example
Mon. 12/9/13 6:39am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
...freezing rain warning up he-uh in North New England; we must all step carefully, & you know there will be traffic accidents somewhere...highs around 20°F all week...all we have to do is learn to enjoy this & a maximum of 20 min.s of sunlight a day until April, & we'll have this thing down fine...
Mon. 12/9/13 6:41am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
...the words 'Noel Coward' capture my sentiments about the Season exactly - but then he was very witty like that...
Mon. 12/9/13 6:44am fxo:
Mon. 12/9/13 6:47am P-90:
Greetings, RevRab. Drive w/caution up in Noo Hamsha. Not so bad in NY, just slushy because it isn't quite cold enough for snow to stick. It's been teens and twenties Farenheit in Chicago all last week--that's our weather for the next week. "Noel Coward": should enter the language as a slang term for those sentiments re: the Season.
Mon. 12/9/13 6:50am mauri:
heya. Here in Finland its all snowy. Just did over an hour of snowshoveling pheeuw. Getting down to -20C next night but after that it'll be over 0C ... can't wait to get skiing on lake.
Mon. 12/9/13 6:54am fxo:
Mauri: enjoy your afternoon. Watch the ice cracks
P-90: ggod way to put it.
Mon. 12/9/13 6:55am P-90:
Huomenta mauri! MINUS 20C ?! That's seriously cold!
Mon. 12/9/13 6:57am kat330:
Howdy, Frank, et al! A bit of 'Go Tell Aunt Rhody' in this arrangement. :)
Mon. 12/9/13 7:01am Philo Gristle:
g'morn, everybody! Looked a lot like Helsinki here in midwest today.
Mon. 12/9/13 7:02am fxo:
kat330: you talkin' about Tymon Dogg?
Philo: you would know...
Mon. 12/9/13 7:02am P-90:
Hi Philo! May I ask where in Midwest?
Mon. 12/9/13 7:03am kat330:
That comment was about "Lose This Skin" if already had ended however you listen. Also heard Matthew Sweet doing a mighty faithful version of Morrissey's song. Seemed just his Sweet voice to same arrangement. Not exactly karaoke, but close enough. Still dug it.
Mon. 12/9/13 7:03am mauri:
winter makes the hotchocolate with a drop of cream liquir that extra flavour
Mon. 12/9/13 7:05am Philo Gristle:
Hi P-90! Southern Indiana, near Louisville Kentucky. Slushy snow, wet and cold and slick... reminded me of my days in Kallio. A few more trees, maybe.
Mon. 12/9/13 7:05am left:
First time tuning in live since...too long! Hello fxo and everyone. Delighted to be here :)
Mon. 12/9/13 7:07am P-90:
Now all I can think of is hot chocolate w/Irish Cream....I'm very suggestible where food and beverages are concerned. @Philo: where the heck is Kallio?
Mon. 12/9/13 7:09am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
...there is always chocolate & alcohol...hopefully served in the lobby of the Neutral Milk Hotel...
Mon. 12/9/13 7:09am Philo Gristle:
Me too! Oh, thought maybe you were also a Finn -- Kallio is an old borough or section of Helsinki.
Mon. 12/9/13 7:09am fxo:
left: glad to be with you.
Mon. 12/9/13 7:09am P-90:
Interwebs say: Kallio is "where the hipsters drink in Helsinki"
Mon. 12/9/13 7:11am kat330:
Yeah, I was going to say "step right in, left."
Mon. 12/9/13 7:12am Philo Gristle:
@kat That was always one of my fave songs of that Clash album. THough like I just mentioned (off the air) I never even heard of the Aunt Rhody song.
Mon. 12/9/13 7:13am Sem Chumbo:
Hiya, Frank, and good morning all. First real snow of the season starting later, followed by that mess RevRab reports. Sorry to have missed all the early good stuff but Christmas party last night...
Mon. 12/9/13 7:13am kat330:
It was only one tiny recurring theme in that Clash song that sounded like "Go Tell Aunt Rhody."
Mon. 12/9/13 7:14am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
...I ruminate that the Clash were more stoned poets than is most commonly thot...
Mon. 12/9/13 7:14am kat330:
Funny that NMH is one of Philo's all-time faves, and he's lactose intolerant.
Mon. 12/9/13 7:14am Philo Gristle:
@P-90 That's about right. Lots of bars, book and music shops. At least was so in late 90s when I lived there for 5 years or so. Couldn't probably afford to live there these days; used to be cheap.
Mon. 12/9/13 7:15am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
...well - it's *Neutral* Milk...
Mon. 12/9/13 7:15am Philo Gristle:
@kat I think it's the "neutral" part that helps.
Mon. 12/9/13 7:15am P-90:
Actually, I've been to Norway and Sweden, but not Finland. Yet. I'm guessing the ladies in Helsinki are amazing. "Aunt Rhody" is a really old (like Colonial) children's folk song. One probably wouldn't have heard it except in the NorthEast US.
Mon. 12/9/13 7:15am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
- jinx !
Mon. 12/9/13 7:15am kat330:
Heh, you owe each other a kalja!
Mon. 12/9/13 7:16am Philo Gristle:
Mon. 12/9/13 7:16am kat330:
@P-90: Be that as it may, he landed this all-American "girl." ;)
Mon. 12/9/13 7:18am kat330:
Really fine set, Frank!
Mon. 12/9/13 7:18am Philo Gristle:
Worth a visit, a lot to like (ladies might be a bit more reserved than in other nordic countries).
Mon. 12/9/13 7:18am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
...'go tell Aunt Rhody the old grey goose is dead' ; I'd guess a Folk tune is Southern 9 times out of 10
- but some BritPsych is being referred to ?
Mon. 12/9/13 7:20am kat330:
Actually, I was discussing that point with Philo. I was wondering if South African?
Mon. 12/9/13 7:21am kat330:
And as for me hearing bits of other songs in songs, that's just how my brain is wired. After posting my Rogue World mashup, someone commented "I'd like to inhabit the universe you inhabit." I dunno if I'd wish so much aural vermicelli in another's brain myself.
Mon. 12/9/13 7:21am fxo:
Mon. 12/9/13 7:22am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
- actually this *does* say Protestant Nw England :
Mon. 12/9/13 7:24am P-90:
@Philo & @Rev: found a little info on "Aunt Rhody"(w/lyrics):
Mon. 12/9/13 7:26am P-90:
OK you beat me to it, I shouldn't even have tried....
"Aural Vermicelli" hahaha!
Mon. 12/9/13 7:26am Philo Gristle:
Ha! Jinxed again! Thanks, RR and P-90!
Mon. 12/9/13 7:26am kat330:
P-90 you must be steering the collective unconscious this day! :)
Mon. 12/9/13 7:27am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
...heard a Nick Lowe tune on 'Prairie Home Companion' yesterday that borrows heavily from 'If I Only Had a Brain' - an interesting example of decisions a songwriter has to make - yerknow - is it a deliberate reference ~ meant as an allusion to intrigue us & is it worth it & such...
Mon. 12/9/13 7:27am P-90:
Steering? just surfin' the wave
Mon. 12/9/13 7:28am kat330:
At Rev -- YES, YES!!! We heard that, too, and Philo will confirm that's the FIRST thing I said!! :) Cool.
Mon. 12/9/13 7:28am Philo Gristle:
@RR Kat said the exact same thing as we were listening yestrday!
Mon. 12/9/13 7:30am kat330:
[Our exciting Saturday night life is revealed.]
This Baker St. is so great. But it's one of my fave tunes, IAE.
Mon. 12/9/13 7:30am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
...Nick Lowe was on Michael Shelley - making the rounds for his Xmas album - but I didn't here him here 'cause I work then. His 'Christmas @ the Airport' tune an instant earworm, & I hate Xmas music 'cause I work in a shop...
Mon. 12/9/13 7:31am P-90:
@Rev: Isn't that all any artist can do, take bits and pieces of stuff he's heard/seen/read and liked, and put them together his own way? But yeah, the question of when you're INTENDED to detect a "quote" or "influence" is interesting...
This "Baker Street" guitar arrangement is kickass!
Mon. 12/9/13 7:31am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
...I mean here him hear...I mean...
Mon. 12/9/13 7:33am kat330:
@Rev --a shop? Are you one of Santa's elves?
Damn, missed him THIS time on Shelley -- heard him last time -- but I heard him before PHC on Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me. He surely IS making the rounds.
Mon. 12/9/13 7:34am P-90:
@Rev: it's worth checking the archive, Shelly did a great job with Lowe, there's a lot of stuff in it you'll like. (Lowe gives a long description of what Yes was like in London clubs back in the day, believe it or not)
Mon. 12/9/13 7:37am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
...& oh - that brings to mind how that's what they did in Bop & whether that was Sampling - & then the whole 'Copyright Criminals' documentary which is really good...I work @ a Thrift Store for Community Services - & *heve* been described as elf-like @ least once in life (if not relating to Xmas specifically) - & Dickensian as well, altho' I was never sure which character *precisely*. The English fiddler who plays @ our local's weekly Irish Trad. sessions & was briefly employed by FairportConvention notes there I'd be my own character...
Mon. 12/9/13 7:39am P-90:
He also talks about why Americans have a stronger tradition of Christmas songs than the English do, fascinating observations. And: yeah, "X-mas at the Airport" is a worthy addition to the holiday songbook
Mon. 12/9/13 7:39am kat330:
It's a Rafferty fest!
Mon. 12/9/13 7:40am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
...I got so into 'War on Xmas' tunes (Fear, South Park, Eric Idle) that - well - more or less...Tradition...
Mon. 12/9/13 7:41am duke:
The only Gerry Rafferty tune I ever heard before was Baker Street. That was played to death. This cut is kind of nice.
Mon. 12/9/13 7:41am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
...like when Beatles & Rutles get together & reportedly all sing each others' songs together...
Mon. 12/9/13 7:42am kat330:
@P-90: I'll try to find time for the archive. Lowe's always been special to me. Odd what he said about English vs. American's and Christmas songs. My fave songs (in English) as a kid were always those from the UK. I've never cottoned to the modern U.S. "carol." I do love the Waitresses though. :)
Mon. 12/9/13 7:42am Philo Gristle:
Gotta head out to work; great list and a terrific set of tunes, Frank! Cheerio.
Mon. 12/9/13 7:43am kat330:
Moi, moi, hunaja! (Oh, right, I can kiss you 'bye right here. ;)
Mon. 12/9/13 7:44am P-90:
@Rev: Well, you're certainly an "elf-like" presence on these boards, so no surprise. And you have an English fiddler and "weekly Irish trad sessions"? Lucky dog, sounds really cool
Mon. 12/9/13 7:44am fxo:
duke: I used to pump up the volume, in the headphones to hear the Baker guitar lead. Still sends me up...
Mon. 12/9/13 7:46am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
...to survive it all one year - I developed this whole imaginary Alternate Holiday of the Ugly Green Dwarf of MumbledeyPeg...partly based on 'Electric Funeral' by Black Sabbath; a song about how in defiance of Nature, we would burn all the energy & fuel possible in Midwinter until it was one blazing fiery Light like an evil Never-Resting Sauron-like eye in the sky
Mon. 12/9/13 7:47am P-90:
Kind of a Heavy Metal Festivus? Groovy
Mon. 12/9/13 7:47am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
...the Reel & the Unreal...same old Jig...
Mon. 12/9/13 7:49am Guido (Cologne):
... this is funny:
the remix is more easy listening than the hit single (Kelis)
Mon. 12/9/13 7:51am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
...yerknow - the mind can take only so much massive social irrationality @ Xmas - so I figured, give my Horrorday its' own facebook page, see what I could get started...
Mon. 12/9/13 7:51am kat330:
Backing up there @ Rev: It all comes together in "Ye Olde Curiosity Shoppe." ;)
Mon. 12/9/13 7:51am P-90:
Mon. 12/9/13 7:53am P-90:
Mon. 12/9/13 7:53am kat330:
@Rev: Have you heard any of Bad Religion's holiday album? Heard snippets in an interview yesterday morning.
Mon. 12/9/13 7:55am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
- no kat330 - but now yer talkin' my language! Love them guys...
...As for the icon of my Horrorday - the Ugly Green Dwarf himself - he has a very curious admixture of traits indeed !...
Mon. 12/9/13 7:57am P-90:
'admixture..." Pray tell, Maestro
Mon. 12/9/13 8:00am P-90:
That "I need a glass of Merlot "line always cracks me up
Mon. 12/9/13 8:02am kat330:
Two interesting snippets I heard were their version of "O Come Emmanuel" and "Little Drummer Boy," a song I HATE WITH A PASSION, but sounded as though they bang it up pretty good.
Mon. 12/9/13 8:03am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
...well, the main Motif of the is Horroday is to defeat Mother Nature Godess by exponentially exalting all the worst Materialistic instincts of Mankind in this extreme Black Saturnalia of Consumption & Aggression & Cultural Assertiveness & Fascistic oppression of any other dissenting views...like : I said MERRY MUMMBLEDEYPEG mofo !! ...simple really...Imagine a festive green winter boot stomping on a butterfly forever...
Mon. 12/9/13 8:06am phlodnaR:
Go tell Aunt Rhody was one of the first songs in the book when learning a musical instrument back in the 4th grade.
Mon. 12/9/13 8:06am kat330:
@Rev: You have me on board -- actually more likely I'm the engineer of any anti-consumerism train given my age and how long I've been touting conservation and environmentalism -- with your anti-crass Christmas campaign. But that shouldn't mean turning a deaf ear to great music just because the wankers have co-opted and abused it in the name of the almighty dollar.
Mon. 12/9/13 8:07am phlodnaR:
Oh, and Hi Frank!
Mon. 12/9/13 8:08am kat330:
@phlodnaR: Yeah, we had to learn a bunch of folk songs in elementary school. I recall learning "Waltzing Matilda," too, so I thought maybe "Rhody" was also one from outside the U.S.
Mon. 12/9/13 8:10am P-90:
@phlodna: We learned to sing it first, in preparation for learning to play it on the recorder (plastic "Tonette" actually)
Mon. 12/9/13 8:10am fxo:
say, what? oh yeah, hey phlodnaR. Welcome to our club...
Mon. 12/9/13 8:11am Guido (Cologne):
I was unlucky trying to see the Wooden Shjips.
The club was so packed, harly any chance to get in ... I gave up.
Mon. 12/9/13 8:13am DeemerDave:
"Back to Land" reminds me of Sonic Youth's "Sugar Kane"
Mon. 12/9/13 8:15am kat330:
Wow, thought I knew most all Yardbirds, but not familiar with this tune.
Mon. 12/9/13 8:16am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
- the final Jimmy Page period kat330 - he w/ his violin bow on the guitar.
Mon. 12/9/13 8:17am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
- title song their last album.
Mon. 12/9/13 8:17am Guido (Cologne):
The LP where Jimmy Page, the notorios copycat "prooved" that he "composed" the Davy Graham Raga version of "She went through the fair".
Mon. 12/9/13 8:17am kat330:
Thanks, and guess that explains it. Great album title!
Mon. 12/9/13 8:18am kat330:
Oh, by title, I meant the one on fxo's list.
Mon. 12/9/13 8:19am Guido (Cologne):
Eddie Phillips of The Creation was with violin bow before. (Listen to "Painterman").
Mon. 12/9/13 8:19am fxo:
DeemerDave:you called it.
RevRab, kats on it. Jeff Beck quit, Pagey kept the ball rollin'. He was gonna call Led Zep, "The New Yardbirds". Momentary lapse of title...
Mon. 12/9/13 8:20am common:
hello frank and everyone. cold.
Mon. 12/9/13 8:21am kat330:
Warm in here. So far. ;)
Mon. 12/9/13 8:21am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
- yup - cred to The Creation - Thx for putting name to Eddie Phillips.
Mon. 12/9/13 8:23am Guido (Cologne):
If you want to get a real picture of late Yardbirds I recommend the Pierre Lattès' "Bouton Rouge"-show. It prooves that the group almost sounded like Led Zep at that time.
Check YouTube for it. It's worthwhile.
Mon. 12/9/13 8:23am phlodnaR:
Mon. 12/9/13 8:24am kat330:
Yes, 'tis. Yours, Frank?
Mon. 12/9/13 8:29am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
...Zep in fact @ 1st fulfilling the Yardies contractual obligations - & meant to be a kind of supregroup of Yardies leftovers & a disgruntled Wh♂ rhythm section...I'd like to add that some Small Faces things are antecedents to some LedZep things too; it's ok - everything has antecedents - but not everything gets the credit ; ) ...
Mon. 12/9/13 8:29am Sem Chumbo:
Yes, indeed. Lovely, fxo. Timely.
Mon. 12/9/13 8:29am fxo:
Not me. Let's call it "infotainment".
Mon. 12/9/13 8:30am kat330:
OK by me. :)
Mon. 12/9/13 8:31am fxo:
Mon. 12/9/13 8:31am Konin:
I had the honour to watch Wooden Shjips in Brussels last Friday. Very, very happy with that. Great performance.
Mon. 12/9/13 8:31am Sem Chumbo:
Went out this day 33 years ago and bought the Wedding album, Japanese pressing. Still have it, unplayed.
Mon. 12/9/13 8:33am kat330:
@Sem: Saving it for a rainy day?
Mon. 12/9/13 8:34am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
- Righteous Sem.
...when people critique John Lennon - I say please remember he only got to live to age 40 & the year 1980.
...I feel like the World changed that day
- but then again John Lennon Will Never Die.
Mon. 12/9/13 8:34am Guido (Cologne):
Don Arden (Small faces manager) send a message to Jimmy page:
"How do you want to play guitar without fingers?"
keith Moon (prospected super-group member) made the joke about the band going down like a Zeppelin made of lead.
Mon. 12/9/13 8:35am Sem Chumbo:
@kat330: a moment in amber, I guess. Time travel. Healthier to let go, but not yet.

@Sem: Just made my mind wander to a sort of Twilight Zone plot where a character's been saving something for decades, for that special moment, and then an asteroid hits the planet, or WWIII. Wow...sorry, I need to herd my thoughts better, but it's like herding Kats. ;)

Hello fxo, very slow dark start with ground mist. Then within ten minutes clouds cleared and it was the most beautiful mid December morn.
Has Sharon Jones been poorly despite being in the parade?

@FX: Ace "Bulldog" remix! Haven't heard this one

- I think it's non-verbal symbolic perfection Sem.
...Yoko said in Mojo that she only listens to John for business not pleasure, because that would be 'sacrilege'. When considering I hear John Lennon's voice probably every day - that brought it home to me...
- 'Stranger to My Happiness' is great !

Brian: who needs a parade. 'tis good music, 'ight?
btw: Don Arden was also the manager of The Move. His daughter, Sharon, well you know the rest (married with the Osbournes).
thanks all for the overwhelming comments. Y'all know who you are...

@kat: seems my estate will just have to deal with it, absent an apocalyptic event.

Mr Arden was a real charmer from all accounts.

@RevRab: I think you've touched on it, an inexplicable moment that just has to be as it is.

Sure hope you have a most worthy inheritor and a trustworthy executor! :)
Thanks, fxo, for the warm sounds on this frosty morn!

A wildly articulate morning around the FXO musical round table.A fine thing to listen to and read this Monday, Frank. Thanks and catch you, and all, next week.
