Courtney Barnett is playing Cambridge MA tonight.... that seems like a bit of a hellride to make the show
Avatar Wed. 6/18/14 3:24pm rrg:

3-4 hours from New York to Cambridge. Why, that's nothing.
Avatar Wed. 6/18/14 3:24pm rrg:

That's EASY!
Avatar Wed. 6/18/14 3:25pm rrg:

You can wait to hear her in Cambridge after WE'VE heard her.
Avatar    Wed. 6/18/14 3:27pm Michael:

Show is at 9:00 but she better not hit traffic!
Avatar    Wed. 6/18/14 3:27pm Guido from Cologne:

Courtney already got rave reviews over here ... "the next ultra cool thing to come". Loved her double-EP.
Avatar Wed. 6/18/14 3:27pm Ken From Hyde Park:

She should ride Amtrak's Acela to get there quickly and in comfort. The Eastern Shuttle isn't flying anymore.
Avatar Wed. 6/18/14 3:27pm rrg:

They'll hold the curtain for her. Or whatever it is they have at such venues.

Avatar Wed. 6/18/14 3:29pm Irwin:

Courtney and the Courtney Barnetts will make it to Cambridge via teleportation.
Avatar    Wed. 6/18/14 3:30pm Guido from Cologne:

"A curtain for Courtney" ... somehow this sounds logical.
Avatar    Wed. 6/18/14 3:30pm Michael:

Sinclair is not far from MIT so perhaps that's true. Hopefully she and her mates can get some food there - it's not bad.
Avatar Wed. 6/18/14 3:33pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Tough break for her Socceroos against The Netherlands today. Hopefully, they'll score a few against Spain next week....everyone else is.
Avatar Wed. 6/18/14 3:34pm common:

that west coast pop art experimental band tune was grand! click!
Avatar Wed. 6/18/14 3:36pm rrg:

You DID click on it. I can see!
Avatar Wed. 6/18/14 3:37pm Irwin:

This are song by Nick Mr. Cave.
Avatar    Wed. 6/18/14 3:37pm Guido from Cologne:

Yey, one of my fav wcpaeb-tracks.

Speaking of performances coming up--for folks in NYC and nearby, Sunday JG Thirlwell and many others at Bang on a Can Marathon...
Avatar Wed. 6/18/14 3:46pm common:

i DID, rrg. i DID indeed!
Avatar Wed. 6/18/14 3:46pm Andrew Waterloo:

That Bang on a Can marathon looks amazing. Always enjoyed Bang on a Can related performances when ever they came up here.

thanks for the link, laura. sounds cool.
Avatar Wed. 6/18/14 3:54pm MD:

That version of "I touch Myself" MADE MY WHOLE DAY!!!!
Avatar    Wed. 6/18/14 3:55pm Mike Sin:

Del Shannon on Liberty... lost of special, interesting cuts during that period.
Avatar Wed. 6/18/14 3:55pm rrg:

Del also does "When You Walk in the Room" on that album. Which is why I have it.

Play that one too.
Avatar    Wed. 6/18/14 3:57pm Guido from Cologne:

interesting version of "hurt" though the very original by Miss Tony Fisher is very special and the most psychedelic 1958 had to offer.
Avatar Wed. 6/18/14 3:59pm still b/p:

I agree, Guido. Fun dose of phasey goodness in that version.
Avatar Wed. 6/18/14 4:00pm rrg:

This is taking us to the top of the hour.
Avatar    Wed. 6/18/14 4:01pm Guido from Cologne:

... first phase on a pop record ever ... if no earlier had emerged from some archives yet ...

glad I made it in time. Courtney Barnett sounding great! The Courtney Barnetts sound great too!
Avatar Wed. 6/18/14 4:14pm nickybones:

Love, love, love Courtney. So bummed I missed her 2 NYC shows.

Avatar Wed. 6/18/14 4:30pm Rectitude:

yeah that was good, COURTNEY music
Avatar    Wed. 6/18/14 4:53pm Guido from Cologne:

Have to keep my eyes open if Courtney will make it to Cologne.
Avatar Wed. 6/18/14 4:55pm rrg:

I went back and listened to this album after Irwin played it last week.

I always kinda-sorta liked it even though there's a little too much hippie sentiment in there.
Avatar Wed. 6/18/14 4:58pm Ken From Hyde Park:

The Socceroos were eliminated today. I hope Courtney takes it well.
Avatar Wed. 6/18/14 5:05pm Irwin:

rrg: yes, there is a high proportion of hippie swill on Surf's Up, but several timeless Brian Wilson songs too.
Avatar Wed. 6/18/14 5:10pm Andrew Waterloo:

Well.. that was a classic piece of Can-Con
Avatar Wed. 6/18/14 5:13pm rrg:

One thing that surprised me about Surf's Up (when I read more about it) was how much of it was NOT written by Brian Wilson, though he's all over it.
Avatar Wed. 6/18/14 5:14pm rrg:

Can-Con can't go unmentioned.

That's not a dig, Andrew. It's just a fact.

My brother was a MuchMusic VJ so a lot of that stuff is burned into my head, too.
  Wed. 6/18/14 5:17pm Listening Out There:

Wasn't Surfs Up one of those late Beach Boys recordings that are all over the map? I used to have a copy of 20/20, which had stuff that was supposed to be on Smile, etc.
Avatar Wed. 6/18/14 5:18pm Andrew Waterloo:

I spent a considerable amount of time affix to Much Music around the time that song came out.
Avatar    Wed. 6/18/14 5:19pm Guido from Cologne:

I go for "Sunflower".
Avatar Wed. 6/18/14 5:20pm rrg:

Hey! I have NJX@NY$!, but where can I get NJX@NY$!#2?
Avatar Wed. 6/18/14 5:21pm rrg:

I can already tell this Roland Kirk piece is going to be great.
  Wed. 6/18/14 5:26pm Listening Out There:

Now, kiddies, Roland Kirk was known for playing more than one reed instrument simultaneously. In the current piece, he's done that in a couple of stretches, both in the solo and the melody...
Avatar    Wed. 6/18/14 5:28pm Guido from Cologne:

I abuse WFMU as an antidote to worldcup outdoor tv. It helps!
Avatar Wed. 6/18/14 5:29pm Andrew Waterloo:

Roland Kirk was a monster and there is video proof!
Avatar Wed. 6/18/14 5:29pm rrg:

Yeah, I gather that all over Europe people are watching the World Cup outdoors on flat screen TVs in public places.
  Wed. 6/18/14 5:35pm Listening Out There:

Here in Seattle, some are watching the World Cup in a gentrified alley: http://alleynetworkproject.com/category/nordalley/
Avatar Wed. 6/18/14 5:46pm nickybones:

Man, totally remember this DK covers album. Wonder what I did with that record...
Avatar Wed. 6/18/14 5:49pm Irwin:

Beth Sorrentino wrote this. Originally recorded by her old band Suddenly Tammy.
  Wed. 6/18/14 5:51pm Laura L:

That Murals song's a keeper. Thanks, Irwin--very nice show today, and Courtney was super--and I was just thinking this reminded me of Beth Sorrentino.
Avatar Wed. 6/18/14 5:54pm rrg:

Sorry, Beth wrote the Murals song, or the Cara Dillon song? I blinked for a second.
  Wed. 6/18/14 5:55pm Laura L:

I think the Cara Dillon song, right, Irwin?
Avatar Wed. 6/18/14 5:59pm rrg:

Right, the Cara Dillon.
Avatar Wed. 6/18/14 6:05pm Irwin:

Yep, "River, Run" is Beth's. Cara was a fan of Suddenly Tammy and had wanted to record that song for years.
Avatar Fri. 6/20/14 9:38pm Droll:

IC: Did you have horrible day jobs?
CB: [Laughing too hard to respond] "Yeah! I've had plenty of horrible day jobs!"
IC: Our listeners want to know you've suffered for your art.

No, I do NOT want to hear good musicians suffer for their art.

...and then her story about her parents. Musicians are held in such low regard, when it manifests itself in stories and shows like this... I'm speechless.

On a happier note, "How to Make a Tape Recorder" was excellent and your show is great (when you're not portraying mistreating musicians as normal/okay). You have always been encouraged to test the limits of how much Killing Joke is appropriate. And hearing the Bonzo Shuffle can only foretell good things. I'm looking forward to players who were omitted from the first episode: Hampton, Rich, Gadd, Bozzio, Smith, Peart, Colaiuta, Copland, Phillips... So many great drummers to enjoy and compare and contrast...
Avatar Fri. 6/20/14 10:23pm Irwin:

I asked her those questions, and she gave polite and light-hearted answers. Your criticism of her is actually a criticism of me. Which is fine, I offer no defense. I'm sure you speak for many listeners.
  Sat. 6/21/14 1:42pm mrose:

"Our listeners want to know you've suffered for your art."
Irwin, this is why I've been listening to you for the past 35 years. Your deliciously outrageous sense of humor has been a cornerstone of what you offer listeners.
