Oi Greg & All!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/7/14 3:05pm Parq:

Hah! I thought Jim sounded a little different this time 'round. Turning MB way up.
Avatar Mon. 4/7/14 3:06pm Bas NL:

Hi Scott! I'm ready for some lavish music.. ;)
Avatar Mon. 4/7/14 3:07pm the glowing one:

Impossible! No matter how clean the record might be, if it's funk it's dirty.
Avatar Mon. 4/7/14 3:08pm DCE:

this will be played at my funeral. hopefully not soon.
Avatar Mon. 4/7/14 3:08pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/7/14 3:09pm Scott Williams:

yes glowing one, but now we hear the dirty funk instead of the sandy surface
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/7/14 3:10pm chris:

Ken vs. Jim into Maggot Brain. Hell to the yeah.
Avatar Mon. 4/7/14 3:11pm the glowing one:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/7/14 3:12pm common:

ello scott and peoples!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/7/14 3:13pm Scott Williams:

Right, Gaylord! Clinton's directive to Eddie H: "Play like your momma just died"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/7/14 3:16pm Gaylord Fields:

Scott, I can't think of a better tribute for recently deceased mommas Mickey Rooney, Peaches Geldof, and John Pinette.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/7/14 3:18pm Scott Williams:

and Leee Black Childers
Avatar Mon. 4/7/14 3:18pm Matt from Springfield:

Whoa shit! You weren't kidding about Peaches. We all pretty much know "why", now I'm waiting for the "what" of her death..
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/7/14 3:21pm Gaylord Fields:

@Scott: Yes, Leee Black Childers was the maggot-brained momma of 'em all! Death and taxes, indeed, one week before April 15th.
Avatar Mon. 4/7/14 3:22pm Yair Yona:

What a brilliant version of Thrasher!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/7/14 3:23pm Scott Williams:

Hello Yair! Yeah, it's gorgeous, innit?
Avatar Mon. 4/7/14 3:26pm Matt from Springfield:

Gorgeous--like the original sound channeled through a phantasmagorical tremolo.
Avatar Mon. 4/7/14 3:27pm Yair Yona:

It is! but that Wyatt track, on man. I gotta get my filthy hands on this album.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 4/7/14 3:30pm steve:

man, hearing Growing makes me long for mid 2000s Brooklyn.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/7/14 3:31pm Scott Williams:

ha! Good call Steve
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 4/7/14 3:35pm steve:

someone needs to make edits of this and same era Black Dice with a throbbing 4/4 techno beat behind it. i might just have to be the one to do it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/7/14 3:35pm Carmichael:

Hi Scott, hello Others.
Avatar Mon. 4/7/14 3:37pm northguineahills:

steve is full of good ideas today. Growing does remind me of random warehouse and vacant lot parties of the mid-noughts.
Avatar Mon. 4/7/14 3:37pm Matt from Springfield:

I am Other, in all measurable ways.
Avatar Mon. 4/7/14 3:38pm Matt from Springfield:

AAARGH! I got here too late and missed Maggot Brain!
Avatar Mon. 4/7/14 3:49pm northguineahills:

Hmmm, I have the reissue LP of Maggot Brain (2000?). Could be cleaner, but relatively intact.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/7/14 3:51pm rsj:

  Mon. 4/7/14 5:03pm Tony:

When I visited Budapest some years ago I was told that under communism in Hungary there were only two western bands that people were allowed to listen to. One was the Beatles, the other Boney M.

Avatar Mon. 4/7/14 5:13pm mariano:

@Tony: Interesting! Made me think of a blog I stumbled onto a while back, by a BBC film maker who specializes in Cold War era stuff. He has a section on a guy named Dean Reed, aka the Red Elvis, an American 60s pop singer who defected to East Germany then moved to Russia and became the establishment rock star in the USSR and the rest of the bloc. Really interesting story, the Dean Reed bit starts on the paragraph below the first two vids: www.bbc.co.uk...

This is on Kranky? nice!

I found the Reed bio, Comrade Rockstar, at the 99 cent store a few years ago. Pretty interesting story.
Avatar Mon. 4/7/14 5:38pm mariano:

@Carmichael: Hmm... I wonder if FMU has ever done a show on Eastern Bloc music. Time to search the archives!
  Mon. 4/7/14 5:39pm cgoldm:

i love this band
Avatar Mon. 4/7/14 5:41pm mariano:

Gaa! Apparently Jason Elbogen's 2007 marathon premium was a compilation of Eastern Bloc new wave bands from the 80s. Me want!
