For my money (what little of it I have), G.F. Fitz-Gerald belongs up there with Derek Bailey, Fred Frith, Hans Reichel, et al in the pantheon of great experimental guitarists. Particularly given that this track is from '74 or so.

I totally read "funky frogs" as "funky progs." As one does.

@Tony an early reference to Fractals as well. (Small six headed creatures)
Avatar Tue. 4/8/14 12:47pm Tony Coulter:

True! That occurred to me as well. By the '90s fractals had become over-referenced, I'd say.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/8/14 12:47pm Brian in UK:

I had a pair of Fractal trousers in the mid Seventies, felt just like suede, 'til I realised they were inside out.

  Tue. 4/8/14 12:59pm Dean:

Get ready for a resurgence of fractals. The word appears in the lyrics to one of the popular tunes in the movie "Frozen" (alliteration, obviously), which my kids watch and sing incessantly.

Wow! That's Morgan Fisher? Of The Hybrid Kidz?

He's still at it, I guess. His original Miniatures comp is one of my all-time favorite LPs

I think I read somewhere that he became a follower of Bhagwan Shri Rajneesh, later known as Osho.
Northwest listeners would remember them as the red clad Rajneeshis.

He did. And, of course, he was in Mott the Hoople too.

at least Mott the Hoople never tried to poison a whole town via salad bars.
Avatar Tue. 4/8/14 1:20pm Tony Coulter:

What IS a "hoople," anyhow?
Avatar    Tue. 4/8/14 1:22pm Rich in Washington:

This sounds like an intriguing comp. Regional rock scenes of the 60s/70s were fascinating.
Have you seen the doc about Texas rock called Teen A Go Go? Pretty cool.
Avatar Tue. 4/8/14 1:25pm Tony Coulter:

Yeah, that Memphis comp is a good one. Haven't seen that Texas doc yet -- have been meaning to.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/8/14 1:28pm Uncle Michael:

A Hoople is Mott. Mott is the one true Hoople. They weren't called Mott; a Hoople, after all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/8/14 1:29pm pacific standard simon:

A Hoople is a population of Hoops.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/8/14 1:29pm DCE:

you could probably write a doctoral thesis on that, UM
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/8/14 1:34pm listener james from westwood:

The term "hoople" was used in "Deadwood" as a term of derision for the rubes that populated the camp. Al Swearengen, frequent fleecer of said rubes, also referred to them individually as "hoopleheads." No new wisdom arose as a result on its real-world origin.

According to the Urban Dictionary:

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/8/14 1:41pm pacific standard simon:

Like the Laps who live in Lapland, the Hoops live in Hoopland (a bit west of the Transvaal, I believe). There, because of an isolation-derived genetic mutation, they are uniquely subject to an infection known as "hooping cough", which is accompanied by a strange upward rippling motion in the torso.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/8/14 1:43pm Brian in UK:

Just had a classic dog chases cat round the house.

@pss The Lapps are good dancers too.

Black Oak Arkansas
were they a southern bogie band or a late 60s acid rock band?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/8/14 2:02pm Carmichael:

Southern (from Arkansas) rock band, played boogie and hard rock.

Yeah, Matmos' 'Civil War' is pretty frickin' sweet.

Thank god for cut-and-paste.

Been here since noon, just busy w/ other things. Today's set is kicking ass, thanks Tony!
  Tue. 4/8/14 2:18pm Dean:

Nothing, except perhaps the two major US audiophile magazines, comes close to The Wire's knack for pretentious baloney. But I'm biased, 'cuz Musicworks favorably reviewed a paper I wrote (not without a hint of pretentious baloney) in its Summer 2005 issue, and lately a buddy of mine has been writing regularly for MW.
  Tue. 4/8/14 2:19pm Dean:

"Thank god for cut-and-paste." Precisely. That's what "Vielgestältiglasterhaft" means!

Woah! I had no idea! There's a 3 and 4?! Are they commercially available or are they just made for WFMU's library?
Avatar Tue. 4/8/14 2:29pm Tony Coulter:

They are commercially available -- think they're pretty recent?
Avatar    Tue. 4/8/14 2:29pm Rich in Washington:

I've sent Irwin stuff I've found or stuff crazy people have sent me. Especially stuff I don't want to play on the air because it's local and I don't want the people stabbing me outside of the radio station.
Avatar    Tue. 4/8/14 2:31pm Rich in Washington:

I do know the original CDs where reissued as one double CD fairly recently. I have it. In fact, when I got it, one of the CDs is misprinted so it looks like I had two disc 1s, when the content is indeed 1 and 2. I had to mark one so I knew which was which
Avatar Tue. 4/8/14 2:34pm Tony Coulter:

OOPS!! my mistake. There are only 2 volumes after all. The others are just reissues w/ different packaging. As you were.
Avatar Tue. 4/8/14 2:35pm Tony Coulter:

Should also mention that Sam Gopal is a person as well as a band -- he's their percussionist.

Thanks for the tip about Key of Z. I just had volume 1. I realized my music service had three more volumes available for download, plus some additional tracks for volume 1. Wish I could see the book(s?).
Avatar Tue. 4/8/14 2:44pm still b/p:

In the 70s, mentions of Mott the Hoople kept bringing to mind Major Hoople, whom I was seeing daily.

Also, apropos "the one true Hoople," I recall a 70s radio promo for a show or an album that said the band is properly or fashionably referred to as just "the Hoople." Don't know if that was a band idea, a promo writer idea or a record company idea.

As of yesterday, I have now seen just one episode of Deadwood, and wouldn't ya know, in that episode Wild Bill got it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/8/14 2:45pm Carmichael:
