Yeah, I really liked that song.

Last time Irwin put something in my head my brain hurt like a warehouse, it had no room to spare. I had to cram so many things to store everything in there! And all the fat-skinny people, and all the tall-short people, and all the nobody people, and now all the WFMU people, too...

Fwank, I like your style.
Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 3:41pm Webhamster Henry:

This also sounds like Oingo-Boingo. With a penguin walking through it. Maybe I should just listen to some Oingo-Boingo.
Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 3:44pm Droll:

WH, I always thought every Oingo Boingo song sounded the same (it's definitely the same guitar part on every song), except for "Lost Like This", which is a superbly written, scored, performed, and recorded. Impossible to believe it's on an Oingo album.
Avatar    Wed. 5/14/14 3:44pm Irwin:

To a man with Jan Hammer, everything sounds like Oingo Boingo.
  Wed. 5/14/14 3:46pm Dean:

Add a good man and everything sounds Like Children.
  Wed. 5/14/14 3:48pm Jaune:

Dean, do you mean "like chicken"?
  Wed. 5/14/14 3:49pm Dean:

No, Jaune, children do not taste like chicken.
Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 3:49pm fleep:

More like veal.

Oh, okay, if you say so.

The good drummer on the album Good God by Good God is Hank Ransome, who's other album credit is on Elizabeth by the band Elizabeth. Coincidence? I think not.

Irwin, that was outstanding. Never heard Good God before. I read online among the one hit wonders a band out Austin called Master Cylinder is quite good as well.

Per the 7SD newsletter e-mailed today, the method to get directions to Andy's is to e-mail Ken from this here web page - wfmu.org...
  Wed. 5/14/14 4:02pm Jaune:

I wish I could go but I am too far away! I love Ken and Andy. I have what I think are some nuclear zingers.
Avatar    Wed. 5/14/14 4:03pm Irwin:

Droll: Almost a trifecta!
  Wed. 5/14/14 4:04pm Jaune:

Irwin, I admire your courage for playing this on WFMU. Could these production values be recreated today?
Avatar    Wed. 5/14/14 4:06pm Irwin:

Jaune: Stimulator's a pretty good album, genre-wise. It captures the '80s zeitgeist, while having been recorded in 2004.
  Wed. 5/14/14 4:08pm Jaune:

WTf, OMG, surprised that was recorded in 2004. I thought the song was just pretty good and dated. Sometimes I love dated. Just my opinion.

The Sutherland Brothers WITHOUT Quiver.
Avatar    Wed. 5/14/14 4:10pm Irwin:

The Sutherland Brothers BEFORE Quiver.
Avatar    Wed. 5/14/14 4:12pm Carmichael:

That means this is around 70-72 era?
Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 4:12pm Droll:

Quiver also has a self-titled album but no track named Quiver. So many close calls today!
  Wed. 5/14/14 4:15pm grass mother:

This is making me feel like a mischievous little mouse...
  Wed. 5/14/14 4:27pm Alison Porchnik:

I love anything owl-related, because they are really cool birds. This is a pretty good song by and about owls too.
  Wed. 5/14/14 4:29pm Alison Porchnik:

I love James Wolf too. Thanks for the wolves and owls, Irwin.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/14/14 4:29pm rrg:

James Wolff's voice is so...different. Always makes me look up from whatever I'm doing.

Not that I was doing anything other than listening to the program, of course.

We don't know what you're doing down there, but as you can see from the playlist image, they're working on technology to detect you doing it. You've been warned.

I see "Earlimart" and I always think "7-11". Could that be his intention?

word, best album for me. after seeing "performance" bought the album, not sure there's a connection. funny movie though, with a very-Michael Jackson-looking like Mick

Seven Second Delay might not be a technical disaster today.
As they always say, "miracles CAN happen."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/14/14 4:54pm common:

@rsj: i also love performance. very strange and great! mick's music video in the middle of the film is a high point for me!
  Wed. 5/14/14 4:54pm P-90:

@ Carmichael: Those attending the picnic should insist that Andy skip the "guest masturbatorium" and show them his private, personal masturbatorium.

Hey. I'm informed that Irwin's going to be on David Garland's "Spinning on Air" on WNYC this coming Sunday. A program about Sun Ra's centenary.

Irwin hasn't mentioned it, so I will.

These are usually posted on his Web site in advance of the radio airing:


But this one isn't up there yet.
  Wed. 5/14/14 4:59pm Laura L:

Open the windows so they don't get blown out!
  Wed. 5/14/14 4:59pm P-90:

@ Ken: Who's got Blondie tonight? Conan? Letterman?
Avatar    Wed. 5/14/14 5:00pm Irwin:

Yes, I'll be on Spinning on Air w/Michael D. Anderson (WFMU's "The Good Doctor") talking about Sun Ra and playing newly remastered masters. This Sunday 8-9pm Eastern. WNYC.org
  Wed. 5/14/14 5:02pm Listening Out There:

I like Spinning on Air. Too bad it's not a podcast. David Diamond says it's due to copyrights. Darn rights...
Avatar    Wed. 5/14/14 5:02pm Carmichael:

I saw Blondie last summer, as the official spousal unit. Really, I don't see what the big deal is. In fairness, they had the ill fortune to follow Devo, who blew the doors off of the joint.
  Wed. 5/14/14 5:02pm Listening Out There:

Podcasts make it better for those of us on The Other Coast.

Thx, P-90. I see I confused the composer with the DJ. My mistook.

I stand corrected on the Tony Seymour track! NOT outsider music. A cool neo-beat musical collaboration. Touche Irwin! Thank you.

  Wed. 5/14/14 5:47pm berbo:

One-Note Samba kinda undermines Irwin's thesis.
Avatar    Wed. 5/14/14 5:49pm Irwin:

"One Note Samba" is just the title. It actually contains 16 notes. It's like "One-Hour Dry Cleaners." They don't really get you back your clothing in one hour, "It's just the name of the shop, love. We take three weeks."
Avatar    Wed. 5/14/14 5:50pm Carmichael:

Will Andy have a rabbi to bless the hotdogs? Is listener John a serial killer? Will Andy's obnoxious son hog the camera?

So many questions, so few minutes.
Avatar Wed. 5/14/14 5:54pm still b/p:

That was music to De Beers ears.
  Wed. 5/14/14 5:54pm berbo:

A Joe Frank BBQ would be awesome. The rabbi would be a prostitute. The hot dogs would be specially imported from Lithuania. Everybody would be compulsively talking about their careers.

I want to go to a Joe Frank BBQ.

Thanks Irwin! Yet another close call with BDoD! Have a fun week, yinz!
