Yeah, I be wallowing in the proggy prog for a bit, then switching gears.
Avatar    Tue. 6/23/15 12:26pm V Priceless:

sounding swell, TC! BTW, Ringo never looked so good, even if he is looking kinda Jon Lordy!
  Tue. 6/23/15 12:28pm Dean:

Earthrise, Fireballet ... portmanteau prog. Windcloud, Treestaple, Couponascent, Floodmustard...
Avatar Tue. 6/23/15 12:31pm Tony Coulter:

Floodmustard! I like it....

I also like how George's teeth look as if they're painted black, like a Japanese geisha.
  Tue. 6/23/15 12:32pm Dean:

Floodmustard works. Mustardflood, otoh, evokes Diaperload.
Avatar Tue. 6/23/15 12:44pm βrian:

Very Yup-like.

From what I read, Floodmustard used to be called Smidgeonlurch.

Hello Tony & other real to reelers.
'Spikes on the Inside' would be a favourite of mine if they existed.

Avatar Tue. 6/23/15 1:08pm Tony Coulter:

Hmm. Never occurred to me before, but this Pandamonium track is a bit like H.P. Lovecraft, maybe.
Avatar Tue. 6/23/15 1:16pm Tony Coulter:

After all that manic proggy elfin triumphalism, I figured it was time for some depressiveness.
  Tue. 6/23/15 1:18pm Dean:

This Sleater-Kinney?
Avatar Tue. 6/23/15 1:19pm Tony Coulter:

Actually, a teenage boy guitarist and his mom.
Avatar    Tue. 6/23/15 1:19pm Rich in Washington:

I came here to say that it sounds like they're singing 'starfish comin' to my mind'.
  Tue. 6/23/15 1:19pm Dean:

I thought Sleater-Kinney was a teenage boy guitarist and his mom.
Avatar Tue. 6/23/15 1:20pm Tony Coulter:

Heya Rich!

Better than starfish comin' IN my mind. Or maybe not....
Avatar    Tue. 6/23/15 1:24pm Rich in Washington:

i was reading an article about mass starfish die-offs and had a dream about them recently.
Avatar Tue. 6/23/15 1:25pm Tony Coulter:

I was given a dried starfish as a kid. I learned the hard way that it's a bad idea to put such things in the tub.

i.e., he could only afford one Palace Guard.

I was wondering who the Brain Police were. I was walking around humming 'who are the brain police?'
Avatar Tue. 6/23/15 1:35pm Tony Coulter:

A psych song about Alfred Adler?? Why not.

Fine fine stuff as of the halfway mark, Tony! Also dug DDDJJJ666 last week.

Duh. HULLO????!!

Dogbowl is the one Shimmy act that I somehow never once listened to, even when I was in my Shimmy phase. Now I want more of their stuff.
Avatar Tue. 6/23/15 2:03pm Tony Coulter:

Angie-Maria-Angelina: HELLLOOOOOO!
  Tue. 6/23/15 2:05pm Mark Williams:

forgot to mention Tony that my Premium CD arrived. Another great one. I've yet to fully digest it, but only a few tracks were already familiar to me. Thank you again.
Avatar Tue. 6/23/15 2:06pm Tony Coulter:

@ Rich: Dogbowl was one of the best Shimmy Disc acts, methinks.
Avatar Tue. 6/23/15 2:07pm Tony Coulter:

@ Mark Williams: Glad you're enjoying the premium!! And, of course, thanks so much for pledging enough to get one.
Avatar    Tue. 6/23/15 2:10pm Rich in Washington:

the moderne incarnation of Chrome is coming to portland soonish.

Are they worth seeing, you think? I'm not up on recent activities.

Steve Fishman on bass, who's currently on the road w/Hugh Cornwell here on the East coast, that much I know

Woo! Roxy!
Avatar    Tue. 6/23/15 2:15pm V Priceless:

this might be fave cut from 'Stranded'
Avatar    Tue. 6/23/15 2:15pm Rich in Washington:

the new album is pretty cool. They sound a lot like peak-era Edge/Creed Chrome, to me. Maybe. I rarely attend many shows, esp. reformed bands. Just not my thing. I don't know.
Avatar    Tue. 6/23/15 2:16pm V Priceless:

always wondered about this 'Third Uncle' part...
Avatar Tue. 6/23/15 2:17pm Tony Coulter:

@ Rich: I'm kind of that way too. Very glad I went to see Magma, though. Some groups really do manage to recapture past glories -- they did, for sure.
  Tue. 6/23/15 2:17pm N. Senada:

Love of Chrome-Helios a Must. Check Out D> Kamikaze WFMU Archives .
  Tue. 6/23/15 2:21pm Dean:

Sadly, I missed Magma, but my buddies caught and loved them. Reformed or not, don't miss Van Halen, though. They rock!
  Tue. 6/23/15 2:25pm Dean:

No artists credited, no artists harmed. Frankly, I think the covers of current pop tunes by Kidz Bop to which my kids listen avidly are superior to most of the originals, a low threshold, I know. Would love to hear Kidz Bop cover Chrome.
Avatar    Tue. 6/23/15 2:25pm V Priceless:

@ Dean: I did score tickets to Van Heflin, with Molten Berle in support, + Iron Malden.
  Tue. 6/23/15 2:26pm Dean:

Vocalist Sammy Lee Davis?

Jeez I remember them at only 70p when the real stuff cost 3 quid!!

See? Who needs Eno?!
Avatar Tue. 6/23/15 2:27pm Tony Coulter:

Ahoy, Stanley!
Avatar    Tue. 6/23/15 2:28pm V Priceless:

new band name = Who Needs Eno?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/23/15 2:28pm Stanley:

...or something like that. But anyway, no self - respecting pop fan would have such a thing in the house.
  Tue. 6/23/15 2:29pm Dean:

I say poo to self-respecting pop fans.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/23/15 2:30pm Stanley:

However, the bikini beach babe on the covers did have a certain appeal to a spotty 13-year old.
  Tue. 6/23/15 2:30pm Dean:

I've had enough of Eno. Eno, ugh!
  Tue. 6/23/15 2:31pm Dean:

Another round of portmanteau band names?
Avatar    Tue. 6/23/15 2:31pm V Priceless:

@ Dean - on the VH singer front, it's actually F. Lee Bishop, Jr. this time out...

Heya, NGH!

I'm re-living the '90s these days. Has something to do with the kinds of CDs I've been finding super-cheap recently.

I give discounts to two-man bands looking for names.
Avatar    Tue. 6/23/15 2:38pm V Priceless:

so what's the math on two-man bands looking for four names?

Whammy Bartok is a Smegma offshoot -- and thus, a Portland project.

Somebody had to let the Residents in....

One of the Smegma off-shootees handed me a Whammy Bartok CD at an event and I promptly lost it. Still looking.
