I just looked up spotted dick, doesn't seem anywhere as icky as it sounds
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 3:17am KP:

Well it's here in can. Fairly certain the can was purchased in uk.
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 3:18am Jay/London:

maybe purchased but not made in the UK KP
  Sat. 5/10/14 3:20am marmalade kitty:

some unexpected rays of sunshine for me over here, for you over there?
  Sat. 5/10/14 3:21am KP:

Probably. It's Heinz, which is in US but as we know from Who album covers is also big in England
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 3:22am Jay/London:

@ Kp Heinz Makes the tins seems just for the USA
  Sat. 5/10/14 3:23am marmalade kitty:

do they have a ring pull? can openers are now extinct..
  Sat. 5/10/14 3:25am KP:

I'm too lazy to go upstairs and look but this family used to live outside London. I think they bought it there as a joke. You would only get it in speciality shops here

@Nora - Yup, thanks. Time to burn the kitchen down
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 3:32am Fran:

Morning all - missed a few weeks due to early morning commitments and the wonderful Fruits de Mer records Crabstock Festival and of course Record Store Day but great listens on the catch up player! Anyway - Happy Birthday Bill - a Heinz tinned birthday cake? Can you fit all the candles on it? Just checking!
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 3:34am Bill Mac:

Hey Fran - It's getting to the point where one gigantic candle would be more practical. Good to here that you're being productive.
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 3:36am Fran:

One giant candle.....a Rocket Cake.....Sun Ra bakeries!! Productive yes....increasingly in poverty as a result.....yes!!

Guten TZAG @ Guido and everyone on every side of The Pond

@ DJ Bill Mac: Your birthday horoscope says that in the forthcoming year, you will see new professional and personal opportunities open up. Your social life will be animated, and it's a good year to put energy into a special project; but beware the tendency to be impatient: it can be costly. You share your birth date with Sid Vicious, John Wilkes Booth, Fred Astaire, and Bono.
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 3:38am Bill Mac:

Don't forget Fred Astaire... agh P-90 beat me to it!
  Sat. 5/10/14 3:38am P-90:

..and Donovan Lietch.

Don't share your party with Bono Bill!

Oh yes KP - I kept up my tradition of wearing a suitable t-shirt this year - woof/moo - but it was so wet and windy I didn't show the garment for the camera and I'm rubbish at selfies!
  Sat. 5/10/14 3:44am KP:

Fran, we played at the one in New York. After I made to London last year we could not be denied!

My morning's been waving a billhook for couple of hours in the forest phew...
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 3:49am Fran:

Yes - Cardigan. The local brewery made up a specially labelled Crabstock ale for the day and it was Barley Saturday which means a procession of tractors old and new amongst other things on the day - quite surreal! Sendelica, Earthling Society and Jack Ellister particularly good. Would have loved to do Helsinki or NY.
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 3:49am Guido from Cologne:

C.A. Quintet got a star-click anyway!
Kinda psychedia persiflage seems like.

Is this set a journey through your most coining musical experiences?
(is coining the right word?)
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 3:49am Fran:

So long as that's not a Bill Mac hook Mauri - its his birthday!!
  Sat. 5/10/14 3:50am w41:

Wait what, what I typed was Hi all
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 3:50am Brian in UK:

@mauri nothing like swinging a billhook. Very satisfying.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BILL MAC!!!
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 3:51am Brian in UK:

Bill, you got most of Europe covered today.
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 3:52am Brian in UK:

Heck it is EUROVISION.
  Sat. 5/10/14 3:53am KP:

Well Keith was not there. It went very well, good crowd and they liked us. It was a thrill for me. There's some clips on YouTube. King Penguin + Fruits de Mer + YouTube
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 3:53am Jay/London:

@ Brian our song For Eurovision is Rubbish
  Sat. 5/10/14 3:54am P-90:

Did MOJO include "Duck Stab/Buster and Glen" by The Residents on their list?
  Sat. 5/10/14 3:54am KP:

Supposedly Fran the goody bag from Wales is going for 600 pounds
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 3:54am Fran:

Brian - I'm going to propose the UK Eurotrash... sorry Vision entry each year will be a reformed prog group so that the UK won't win and you won't watch it or will you?

Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 3:57am Brian in UK:

@Jay what's new. So pleased Englebert flopped the other year. What an ego. He picked his own songs on Destert Island Discs.

@Fran that can only be an improvement. I love GOOD pop music.
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 3:57am Guido from Cologne:

"Duck Stab/Buster and Glen" is among Residents' best, but not their very weirdest ...
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 3:57am Fran:

It's insane KP - I've not seen £600 but nearly £200 for sure. Its one of these things I have a real rant about - eBay and Record Store Day is another one..
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 3:57am Stanley:

Morning Bill, everyone.
Aw! Missed It Can't Happen Here.
I'll just play it in my head.

"I Wouldn't Leave My Wooden Wife for You Sugar"
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 3:59am Fran:

Bill - try the Diamanda Galas and John Paul Jones lp This Sporting Life and also her solo piano concert Malediction and Prayer which is actually very different and special - blues, spirituals and Johnny Cash!
  Sat. 5/10/14 4:00am Emile:

Loved the C.A. Thing

The Commitments!

Anyone knows about
LISELOTTE & THE NEP-TUNES
Rocked up German Folk Songs Recorded in USA
(actually on a NJ-state based label)
That one is way weird ...
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 4:03am Fran:

Bill - you mean The Commitments. The best Dark End of The Street is without doubt James Carr.

Fran what is the sculpture?
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 4:06am Bill Mac:

@KP - I don't know how I feel about double bummer, even now. The production is very shrill or something.
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 4:06am Guido from Cologne:

i know Bongwater from the promo-copy-poison-bin @ the fanzine i was working for in the 90ies.
Otherwise I'd never heard of them. I'm a poison bin collector.

"the Sub basement of Hell " sounds like a bar I know.

Bill, you're 21 already!
  Sat. 5/10/14 4:15am P-90:

Nice to see The Holy Modal Rounders on the list, their weirdness is underrated. And the Beatles(!). Of course The Residents made the list, but not their most sublimely, willfully weirdest album by far...
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 4:16am Bill Mac:

Goin towards 3 times at this point...
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 4:16am Andy in Berlin:

Is Patches also supposed to be in the weirdness category?
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 4:16am Bill Mac:

I loved The Commercial Album - 40 1-minute songs...
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 4:17am Stanley:

Forgive me folks but help me catch up. What list is this?
  Sat. 5/10/14 4:17am KP:

Ok big argument over Patches. Is this song familiar to US audience? I swear I never heard it in New York
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 4:17am Bill Mac:

@Andy - nah, I thought I should pander to the pop fans out there a bit
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 4:18am Guido from Cologne:

Commercial Album was the last real good one from their classic period.
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 4:18am Fran:

It was at Yorkshire Sculpture Park two years ago now - its not a Hepworth or Moore but I can't remember off hand which temporary exhibition it was!
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 4:19am Brian in UK:

Stanley, Mojo magazine 50 weirdest albums. No Carpenters though.
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 4:20am Fran:

Thanks KP - Keith was in Helsinki. I'll look up the footage.
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 4:20am Bill Mac:

The missus was telling me about it this week. It's on my iPod (a black hole of new stuff every time I turn it on). I thought she was talking about McArthur Park or Little Green Apples), then I heard it. In my mind Clarence Carters' only claim to fame was that Strokin song
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 4:20am Guido from Cologne:

Before Commercial Album there was Morgan Fishers "Miniatures" (maximum a minute comp).
Coincidence rather than rip-of i guess.
  Sat. 5/10/14 4:22am P-90:

Glad poor old Skip Spence got recognized too, woulda been a shame not to include him
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 4:22am Bill Mac:

@Guido - yeah,wish I saw them back in the day. Also the Morgan Fisher thing is pretty good too. I loved Andy Partridges History of Rock and Roll. I just realized he appeared on both of them
  Sat. 5/10/14 4:22am KP:

Fran, was there a fest in London?
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 4:23am Fran:

Kramer - The Guilt Trip good - Residents - Not Available is a great lp and I could listen to The Commercial Album - The Art of Being Polite etc watching all the accompanying one minute videos all day!
  Sat. 5/10/14 4:24am KP:

MJM grew up in Uk. She says patches was massive
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 4:24am Fran:

No London fest this year so far KP. Sendelica come from around Cardigan and were behind the venue I think. A good quirky choice but hard to get to!
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 4:25am ghostofpeterfalk:

Morning Bill & everyone. When I was a kid there were 3 songs that made a lasting impression: Sparks - This Town..Bobbie Gentry - Ode To Billy... And Clarence Carter's Patches, great to hear it again! Loving the show Bill.
  Sat. 5/10/14 4:25am Mrs. Bill Mac:

@KP - Clarence Carter's Patches was a US hit back in 1970. It's been haunting me for the last 3 weeks. @husband - HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!

@Mrs Tanks! Sorry about cutting a little off the beginning.
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 4:27am Guido from Cologne:

went through the Mojo list right now and must say I do not see about the half of it as "weird". Allright, it's a staff-vote -list. That waters the whole thing ...
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 4:32am Fran:

Is this a day for Fish Heads to be played?
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 4:33am Brian in UK:

Make what you will of lists. Personally........
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 4:34am Andy in Berlin:

@ Bill - the less said about God Didn't Make Little Green Apples the better. Thank you.
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 4:34am Stanley:

Thanks, Brian.
Guido - I'm with you on this.
A heck of a lot of what you hear on WFMU is far weirder than what's on that list.
Weird = good
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 4:36am Fran:

Agreed Stanley - the lists are a bit like Calling Stuart Maconie the guardian of all that is freaky and out there....err....no!

Bill got any POPTASTIC toons?
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 4:39am Wynford Eagle:

Should of got Julian Cope to compile a list. Maconie is a bit swayed as he has to keep a BBC6 music audience interested and we all know how bad BBC6 is now….
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 4:40am Brian in UK:

Was BBC6 ever Good?
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 4:40am Fran:

Weird can be good and often is. Weird can also be awful and its the old word of warning regarding quality control i.e. just because it was released in an original run of 50 on a small label in 1978 doesn't mean its any good.
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 4:41am Brian in UK:

Crispy Ambulance are touring again I believe.
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 4:42am Brian in UK:

Fran totally agree.

The Revs are a bit Marmite.

'UNSUNG is a colossal repository of rock‘n’roll writing — a Gnostic Odyssey through lost and forgotten freakouts.

@Brian - whaddya syain? They're yeasty?
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 4:45am Fran:

Was BBC6 any good? Its never been great and often rubbish but occasionally reaches a peak of mediocrity which for mainstream UK radio is perhaps ironically to be applauded as an achievement of sorts. BBC Radio 3's Late Junction programme is probably better than many so called esoteric programmes on other BBC channels
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 4:45am Wynford Eagle:

@Brian in UK: Love Crispy Ambulance
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 4:47am Fran:

I know where Brian is coming from regarding Mercury Marmite! I quite like them - far fewer missteps than The Flaming Lips who are so inconsistent and increasingly not interesting.
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 4:48am Stanley:

@Fran - I gave up on Late Junction some time ago. It got a bit too "smooth alternative" for me and its obsession with Scandinavian jazz.
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 4:49am Fran:

Depends on the presenter Stanley - Max Reinhardt is still very good
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 4:49am Bill Mac:

Didn't the Lips make it unto the list for their 4 CD set that you have to cue up simultaneously for maximum listening pleasure? Some great songs but I do not get them.
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 4:49am Brian in UK:

Bill love or hate. Car Wash Hair is Fab. The early stuff on Fresh before Sony came in with the big bucks is good but a bit messy.

@Fran I hate with a purple passion the word esoteric. Had all the early Lips but they have slowly faded. Death Hit best record of the 90s!!!!

Fiona Talkington, I seem to recall was the culprit. What was that BBC show of experimental electronic stuff called? I remember the 'artistes' came mainly from Belgium.
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 4:51am Bill Mac:

@Brian - I remember the first time I heard that one. A record store we walked into was playing it.
  Sat. 5/10/14 4:51am marmalade kitty:

thats why we're here and not @ bbc..
Brian Mathews Sounds of the 60's is a great programme on bbc radio2
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 4:51am Brian in UK:

Ask Bill about the Lips he is the MAN.
Used to have Zaireeka too much hassle, great idea though. All CD players move at a different speed.
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 4:52am Fran:

The 4CD nonsense Zaireeka was reissued on RSD - my comment to the shopkeeper was to place the 4 CDs in four seperate towns so that it couldn't be bought by some poor fool with more money than sense - although they may then have gone for the ridiculously overpriced Soundgarden box set!
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 4:52am Bill Mac:

@Brian You channel one group from a band and everyone thinks you're an expert.
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 4:53am Wynford Eagle:

Well i really liked the Iggy Pop shows, and yes late junction is a bastion of strangeness - been listening for years, like nick luscombe, verity sharpe (where she gone?) but remember the campaign to save bbc 6? well we did save it but they then added all the shite you don't need, and presenters, like the blonde one, but do like giles petersen / keris matthews. BBC Wales puts out a great programme featuring welsh up coming and established bands, and no it's not all manics and stereophonics
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 4:54am Fran:

Yes Fiona Talkington - she is probably responsible for a cohort of British Society going to bed wearing a polo neck sweater to read coffee table books listening to chamber jazz on ECM or similar labels - that isn't to say ECM haven't released good things!! I do long for the days of more maverick BBC DJs such as Andy Kershaw!
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 4:54am ghostofpeterfalk:

@Brian Mark Kozelek coming to London - I care! Although I'd care more if he came to Leeds or Manchester. He is a big favourite of mine. BBC6 could and should be better, but falls short alas and is patience-testingly smug. @Fran re:Weird stuff - I concurr - Sorry I joined these discussions late, that's what happens when you leave the computer for 5 minutes! p.s. I like Stuart Mac, sorry...
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 4:56am Fran:

I like Stuart Mac myself - its just that The Freak Zone and Freakier Zone's are about as freaky as Housewife's Choice with Jimmy Young!
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 4:57am Brian in UK:

Radio Mulitkulti out of Berlin is off air now. That was a crime.

@ghostofpeterfalk you are in Huddersfield I believe. This is the other gig so far, a festival.

Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 5:04am ghostofpeterfalk:

@Fran haha - now Jimmy Young, there was a show! I suspect there has never been a better summation of Fiona Talkington and yes Kershaw was passionate and had an edge about him. When I was a student I got to interview Peel in his home. An exceedingly lovely man! I asked him if Andy would be up to giving me an interview. He said "I wouldn't if I were you, he's in a bad place right now...I didn't bother.
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 5:05am Andy in Berlin:

I saw the Monks a couple of years ago - great show! With special guests The Raincoats and Mark E. Smith, etc.

That sounds like a good night Andy!

Tim Buckley - not weird, just different

Jazz is weird.

We are normal and we dig Bert Weedon.
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 5:10am ghostofpeterfalk:

@Andy What state was Mark E Smith in? The last times I've seen him he's become something of a caricature of himself - not good.

I should be into this guy more
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 5:12am Fran:

There is jazz and there is jazz Brian. It's such a catch all
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 5:12am ghostofpeterfalk:

@Brian - that is a must! Again thank you. The Monks followed by Tim Buckley, excellent!
  Sat. 5/10/14 5:13am marmalade kitty:

followed by the pink floyd..
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 5:13am Andy in Berlin:

@ Ghost - I would say he was drunk as a skunk. But then I saw the Fall about a year or so later and he seemed in decent shape. The friend who I went with thought they weren't very good but I enjoyed them thoroughly.
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 5:14am Andy in Berlin:

addendum - the last referring to the Fall, not The Monks.
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 5:16am Bill Mac:

I did play some Bert Weedon within the last year, so I'm hip to the reference AND the artist
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 5:17am Brian in UK:

@Fran saw William Parker, Hamid Drake & John Dikeman last Wednesday very uplifting. What a drummer is Hamid. Then Nick Lowe & John Doe on Thursday. And the car passed its MOT. So a satisfactory week all in all.
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 5:17am Stanley:

Bill, you're with it.
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 5:18am Brian in UK:

So the Bonzoes are normal? Comedy is never taken seriously.
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 5:19am Fran:

I remember seeing the Fall supporting The Magic Band a few years ago and Mark E. was prowling drunkenly annoying the rest of the band by twanging and hitting things as they were trying to play - I'm amazed the drummer didn't paradiddle him to death!
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 5:19am Brian in UK:

Love the expression 'You are as bright as a Toc H lamp'

They really misssed the boat on that one. I've heard them mentioned in the same sentence as the Mothers
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 5:19am ghostofpeterfalk:

@Andy Mark E has always been something of a loose cannon live, but last year he was in really a rather tragic state and at one point asked the audience ‘Why arrah ya laffin ah’?’
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 5:20am Guido from Cologne:

Coming back from shoping and thinking abou Mutantes ... and what plays Bill us?
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 5:20am Andy in Berlin:

@ Brian - I would say that in proper context the Bonzos are very much normal :)
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 5:20am Wynford Eagle:

just too much weirdness in my life to tell. i've got about 10 of the albums listed, but for me the most recent incarnation of 'something strange and beautiful has to be lonnie holley. Oh, don't get me started on Tim Buckley…he's never far from my mind, or turntable
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 5:21am Andy in Berlin:

@ Ghost - well he is a big boozer and all that that impies
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 5:22am Fran:

I was there at Cafe Oto Brian and yes amazing stuff. As a very inferior drummer who still tries, Hamid is sensational but I love William Parker and John Dikeman's work too - I posted a few photos on my Facebook page if you are interested - nothing great but evocative!
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 5:23am Wynford Eagle:

my bro' was tour manager on a Fall tour in the US, when Mark sacked all the band mid tour, after a massive fight on stage..
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 5:24am ghostofpeterfalk:

@Fran haha - he does seem obsessed with irritating the hell out of every member of the band. He must be a rather troublesome band-leader, which I expect explains why there have been around 4000 and counting members...
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 5:24am Brian in UK:

@Andy well it is certainly true now as they tour as Three Bonzoes and a piano. Sad.

@Fran sorry to miss you, what a pair of lungs on Mr Dikeman. Not tuned into Facebook. Great venue saw Lonnie Holley there afore Christmas.
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 5:24am Guido from Cologne:

what is weird bout Axis exept for the beginning of the album?

  Sat. 5/10/14 5:24am marmalade kitty:

great set! thanks, Bill.
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 5:25am Brian in UK:

@Guido I think it was the cost of the album cover at the time.
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 5:26am ghostofpeterfalk:

This is a great set Bill!
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 5:26am Fran:

The Fall have always been important here in Rochdale having recorded at Cargo studios in early years. I remember the joy of being in a hip record shop in Barcelona several years back when Rowche Rumble came on - yes!!
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 5:26am Bill Mac:

Same with Funkadelic I always thought the album cover was interesting

Damn bass in this tune sounds great
Avatar Sat. 5/10/14 5:28am Wynford Eagle:

Ramases - Space Hymns:
'One glance at the grammatically challenged and logic-dodging sleevenotes will convince you that Mister Ram (Martin to his Earth Mum) was a couple of coins short of a hexagram. Sounding like a Norwegian Eurovision entry on "Oh Mister", a druggy New Seekers on "And The Whole World", and Reg Presley singing over a Unicorn-era Bolan backing on "Quaser One", this is a genuine prog-oddity. It would be nice to report that he's thrusting religious pamphlets at passers-by as we speak, but apparently he committed suicide in the 1990s. The future 10cc provide punchy production and some meaty beaty backing.
