Andrew, we never could either. We just sat there and went "WHUH?"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/2/14 10:49am Cecile:

Oh, the third one is OK, too Parq. But the first two, wow.
Avatar Thu. 10/2/14 10:50am Joe McG:

@Kurt: Yeah, it was yours! I think you either gave it to me or I stole it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/2/14 10:50am Brian in UK:

Is this for Michael?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/2/14 10:51am Andrew Waterloo:

@Cecile, when I think of Papa Was A Rolling Stone I think of their version.
  Thu. 10/2/14 10:51am will:

I have a version of that Electric Guitars song on a comp called THE BRISTOL RECORDER where they speeded it up and sung in tune!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/2/14 10:52am Kurt Gottschalk:

joe, ha! guess i didn't want it too bad.

i want that electric guitars single, tho. trade you for the buchanan bros?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/2/14 10:53am Kurt Gottschalk:

oooooooooh, wait, you were talking about gayle. that makes more sense. ok, trade you the gayle adams 45 you already have for your electric guitars 7"? done deal.
Avatar Thu. 10/2/14 10:53am Joe McG:

@Kurt: Ha ha ha! @will: Cool info, I have to find that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/2/14 10:54am Parq:

'Cile I dig "Tornadoes" the most, but I'm afraid the other one, the one with Mitch Ryder, just doesn't do it for me. "Dog" is way better, IMO. I cheerfully acknowledge your prerogative to disagree. Peace on ya.
Avatar Thu. 10/2/14 10:55am βrian:

Joe, are you playing these from a stack? I can almost hear the sweet "plop."
Avatar Thu. 10/2/14 10:55am listener mark:

Hallelaujeh! I have seen the light! I am saved!
Avatar Thu. 10/2/14 10:56am Joe McG:

@Brian: No, but if we had a turntable that did that, I would totally do it!
Avatar    Thu. 10/2/14 10:57am V Priceless:

new band name alert = sweet plop
Avatar Thu. 10/2/14 10:57am βrian:

Well, there's your fundraising hook!
  Thu. 10/2/14 10:57am Brendan:

@Brian t- that plop may have been me, was it preceded by a grunt?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/2/14 10:58am bobdoesthings:

The Sweet Plop could be a great album title..
Avatar Thu. 10/2/14 11:04am d¢ pät:

oh, the ol' silent marathon...
  Thu. 10/2/14 11:04am dave from toronto:

joe - TROOPER was a canadian band - hence my blown mind that you played them.

xo
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/2/14 11:07am Andrew Waterloo:

I was thinking... there's another Trooper and Joe didn't add ( this is not the Canadian one )
Avatar Thu. 10/2/14 11:10am conkrete_dawg:

Thank you, Joe, for this guitar-based rock-and-roll.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/2/14 11:10am Mike East:

When I heard Mark Stewart was gonna be on the fun machine, I was thinking of the guy from Bang on a Can...which seemed a bit incongruous for that particular show...though this is wfmu, home of the incongruous. The other Mark Stewart makes more sense, though.
Avatar Thu. 10/2/14 11:13am Joe McG:

You bet, dawg! @Andrew and Dave: Yes, actually I think I might've played the UK Trooper after all....

Avatar Thu. 10/2/14 11:21am Joe McG:

Thanks, Brian! Was indeed some Canadians. At least I got my Can-Con in for today!

Just got here. Pink Tiles = great
Avatar Thu. 10/2/14 11:24am Joe McG:

@Mike: They were so nice they stayed after their session and helped us get the mailing out!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/2/14 11:25am Mike East:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/2/14 11:25am Mike East:

may have to purchase that sweet looking LP
Avatar Thu. 10/2/14 11:27am Joe McG:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/2/14 11:30am Parq:

Aw, they look like nice kids! Enjoying the set.

Hi Joe und Dienstag Leuten.
     Thu. 10/2/14 11:32am 12539:

This is delightful.
Avatar Thu. 10/2/14 11:33am Joe McG:

Oh, and since yours truly fooked up the interview section, which I can't air, I recommend you watch their bio video on the web site for all your band info needs. It's also fun to watch!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/2/14 11:33am Stevel:

Great stuff.
  Thu. 10/2/14 11:35am PJ:

This is really good, Joe. Is the band playing somewhere in the area?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/2/14 11:35am Cecile:

Parq, are you familiar with the Was/Not Was album before Born to Laugh at Tornadoes? It is my favorite one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/2/14 11:35am adrian in mpls:

really enjoying this - it's banishing my bad mood.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/2/14 11:36am Cecile:

oh! Australians!
Avatar Thu. 10/2/14 11:36am Joe McG:

@PJ: Unfortunately not, but they hope to return to the States soon for gigs! Hopefully they will also pick up a U.S. distributor for their wonderful LP!
Avatar Thu. 10/2/14 11:40am Dr. Goot:

Great set, thanks Joe!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/2/14 11:40am Carmichael:

Heh heh ... Game Theory. I used to jam and hang with those folks back in the day. Shelley the keyboard player and I also had a few college classes together. Oh, the stories I could tell ....

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/2/14 11:52am joe:

All interviews with bands should be done over the process of stuffing envelopes. :0
  Thu. 10/2/14 11:54am Yair yona:

Good evening Joe, and everybody ;))
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/2/14 11:54am Carmichael:

Where would we be without the 60's..?
