I wonder how some of these singers are unknown. Was the music found on an unlabeled cassette?
Avatar Wed. 3/26/14 7:13pm Gary:

Good question, Dave. It could be that they weren't able to find someone to read whatever language it was in. Or that they recorded it from a source they didn't bring back with them. It would be great to go through each album with each of the compilers/editors (named in the playlist, btw)

I'm late to the party. Is this a Sublime Frequencies special?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/26/14 7:16pm davex:

It would really be a shame if they just didn't have someone to read the languages, which shouldn't be too hard (and some scripts are not that hard to figure out with a little practice). In any case, I'm intrigued...

Yes, cklequ, it is indeed -- come on in!

Looking back, Sublime Frequencies seems like the only possible outlet for Sun City Girls' activities. I mean, they've made so much thing that they couldn't be a band anymore, just a label.

Speaking of soup ... @Jill - thank you for cioppino recipe (via Gary)!
Here's a trick I use to make any seafood soup 10x better - every once in a while steam some mussels in some sory of winey, garlicky bath - and - temporary restraint is called for here - strain out the mussels, shell, chill and eat them w salad for lunch or a snack. Meanwhile reduce the brothy goodness as far as you're willing to take it, and freeze. Use these power packs wisely. You probably already hoard your shrimp shells...

I don't know anything about the music I hear on this show but I don't care. My ears like it.
Avatar Wed. 3/26/14 9:22pm Gary:

Yep, I felt weird when I first bought this CD ...
Avatar Wed. 3/26/14 9:22pm Gary:

It's illegal to play it in Brazil, I seem to recall reading in the liner notes
  Wed. 3/26/14 9:26pm doca:

actually it isn't, as the border with usual funk is very thin. but it was discouraged in radio because it defended drug traffic organizations. most of this music still sells on the street, on pirate compilations, so the radio is no big issue
  Wed. 3/26/14 9:28pm doca:

comando vermelho came back to notice with the recent crisis on brazilian prisons in the state of maranhão. if anyone has stomach and is willing to know more about it, it is worth reading to understand brazil
Avatar Wed. 3/26/14 9:28pm Gary:

Ah, got it. We should be arrested for keeping you up, though :)

Not knowing anything about the music you hear on the radio is a feature, not a bug.
  Wed. 3/26/14 9:30pm doca:

that's time on parole, gary. i guess i'm gonna stay up until the show is over

@Gary - That Frank O'Hara poem is one of my favorites!
Avatar Wed. 3/26/14 9:32pm Gary:

He's hands down my favorite poet, I think of any era.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/26/14 9:34pm pacific standard simon:

I'm inclined to agree. There are other poets that knock me out, but O'Hara was by far the friendliest to the reader.

when I went to dj in Monterrey Mexico, 7 years back, the Mexican dj before me was playing nothing but baile funk. Luckily, me and my dj partner had enough baile funk to transition the dancing crowd to whatever we were playing later.

Also Thom Gunn.

I'm inclined to concur w/ pss's opinion.

oh man, i *love* phuong dung. i have a huge asian pop playlist that i throw on random all the time, and she always stands out when she comes on.
  Wed. 3/26/14 9:42pm doca:

i've read wislawa szymborska recently and liked a lot. her oetry the same feel of exceptional day to day events and things than o'hara. just as a suggestion...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/26/14 9:44pm pacific standard simon:

Any idea who's playing guitar on this Phương Dung track? It rubs my love of The Magic Band the right way.
Avatar Wed. 3/26/14 9:46pm Gary:

No idea, Simon. Might be in the liner notes of the album, but it's an LP only at this point and I don't have it :(
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/26/14 9:47pm pacific standard simon:

Will look into it, @doca.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/26/14 9:50pm pacific standard simon:

Probably just a footnote, anyway, Gary. I know you're lucky with these things if you have anything more than a group picture.

I'm busy washing dishes, so I'd thought I'd say souper fractals of beautiful vibrations, Gary!
Avatar Wed. 3/26/14 9:54pm Gary:

I had one other set after this, but I just don't think I should do it -- it's a 9 minute track, which will mean it won't be captured in the archives ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/26/14 9:55pm pacific standard simon:

I'm being called to dinner, so I'll just say thanks, Gary, for presenting all this wonderful stuff on GTDR and WFMU!
Avatar Wed. 3/26/14 9:55pm Gary:

That was Amitabh Bachhan speaking, biggest superstar in the world

Night, Simon! And bon apetit!

Thanks for hanging out, Michael! I'll see if I can listen in on Friday -- will be on the Bolt Bus!

Avatar Wed. 3/26/14 10:01pm Doug Schulkind:

I've done the NY-DC Bolt many times, Gary. You are in for a bus ride!
Avatar Wed. 3/26/14 10:03pm Gary:

Night James, Carol and Doug! Yeah, I'm getting mentally prepped for this ride :)

They need to keep this stuff in print! You see that pile in the picture? You know how many hundreds or maybe thousands that would be worth? They have at least a 100 releases, and 75% of it is out of print. So, you know what I'm gonna do? I'm gonna put all these files (I have most of that pile) up on my blog to download. I love the label, but I've always been pissed at the rarity.
