"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

Gotta say this beats "Holly, Jolly Christmas" and Mr. Ives by a number of orders of magnitude. Good morning, John, and all.

I still love this V/Vm 7" for twisted christmas tunes: www.discogs.com...

Ah, DC. Nice one.

@Sammy C: yo
  Wed. 12/18/13 7:56am P-90:

@Andrew C.: Don't know it, but any X-mas album with a track called "Soylent Night" is worth checking out

There was a lovely Fahey doc on the BBC a couple of weeks ago.

Fahey is ALWAYS welcome, John A.
  Wed. 12/18/13 8:25am maja:

Just in to say bye, I'll listen to this one next week after your christmas show. My christmas day is a huge succes already! Have a good time. Happy.

Good day John.
AndrewC I can remember John Peel playing John Fahey many years ago on Top Gear. It was an ear opener. Wonder what the shop was in Camden. Compendium? Was that only books.
  Wed. 12/18/13 8:34am P-90:

@Andrew: cool piece in The Guardian, thanks. The comparison between Fahey and Brautigan is apt. It only becomes clearer with the passage of time that anyone who tackles the problem of composing contemporary pieces for solo guitar is following in Fahey's footsteps
Avatar    Wed. 12/18/13 8:34am common:

this fahey is beautiful. thanks john. morn everyone.

That John Spence was just thing I needed to get my ass out there shopping.
Avatar Wed. 12/18/13 8:49am John Allen:

risky, just mumble your way thru the lines like spence, people will clear the way
  Wed. 12/18/13 8:50am marmalade kitty:

beautiful..
  Wed. 12/18/13 8:51am marmalade kitty:
