Heya, James!

"Hiss-torians" -- I like it!

Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/30/15 12:06pm Webhamster Henry:

Some of my tapes are squeaky, and the Internet advises to either bake 'em under a low heat (hmmm) or somehow lubricate them with car wax. I suspect these techniques may end up causing more damage. What say ye? BTW, it's only commercial tapes that do this; all my home-taped C90s are fine.
Avatar Tue. 6/30/15 12:06pm Tony Coulter:

Yes, that IS how they spell "hideous."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/30/15 12:07pm Aaron in Minneapolis:

I love your backgrounds for the tape pictures. where do you get them?
  Tue. 6/30/15 12:07pm Mark Williams:

I'm more of a Tape-worm myself.
Avatar Tue. 6/30/15 12:09pm Tony Coulter:

Hey, Webhamster Henry!!

I would have thought squeakiness was caused by the shells rather than the tape -- but what do I know! I have my own little cassette sick bay.
Avatar Tue. 6/30/15 12:10pm Tony Coulter:

Greetings, Aaron and Mark!!!
Avatar Tue. 6/30/15 12:11pm Tony Coulter:

The backgrounds I used for these cassette pics are always LPs or EPs from my collection. Today's background is a hand-painted Bablicon LP.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/30/15 12:12pm Aaron in Minneapolis:

Another question, who did you have to kill to get your hands on these tapes?
Avatar Tue. 6/30/15 12:14pm Tony Coulter:

The one on the right in the pic was given to me by my friend Matt Moses (thanks, Matt!) -- and I didn't even have to break his kneecaps first.
Avatar Tue. 6/30/15 12:14pm Doug Schulkind:

@Aaron in Minneapolis
Now you know why we all call Tony "The Fixer."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/30/15 12:15pm Webhamster Henry:

I think it's the edge of the tape on that plastic sheet that separates it from the shell. Too often, these shells are glued together and that makes them hard to maintain. Those little felt pressure pads fall off a lot too. The ones on 8-tracks are often made of foam, which disintegrates. You can understand what the CD people saying "Perfect Sound Forever" were referring to!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/30/15 12:16pm Webhamster Henry:

Hey if Matt Moses still has one of My cassettes that he played on WKCR 25 years ago, I'd like it back!
Avatar Tue. 6/30/15 12:17pm Tony Coulter:

Heya, Douggles (rhymes with "Snuggles")
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/30/15 12:18pm Webhamster Henry:

Or maybe that was Mark Moses.
  Tue. 6/30/15 12:18pm Mark Williams:

a Bene Gesserit track I've never heard! Mind you, give these folks one day and that's another 5 tracks I've never heard by them...
Avatar Tue. 6/30/15 12:19pm Tony Coulter:

@ Webhamster: Nope - it was indeed Matt. He was New Music department head at KCR. What was the name of your tape?
Avatar    Tue. 6/30/15 12:23pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

DUDE. Just got here. And happy to dig a cassette on Tape Hiss i actually still have... somewhere... in a box....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/30/15 12:24pm Webhamster Henry:

It was called "I'm Phoney" - and it was all improvised synth stuff mixed with this speech chip synthesis from a computer I hand breadboarded. One of them, I recall, was done over live audio from a space shuttle launch!
Avatar Tue. 6/30/15 12:24pm Tony Coulter:

Forgot to mention: the tape on now is the one on the left (with Shiva, or whoever that is on the cover)
Avatar Tue. 6/30/15 12:25pm Tony Coulter:

Howdy, Turnip!
Avatar    Tue. 6/30/15 12:25pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

That Attrition track, I think, was also included on the Inner-X compilation VHS...
Avatar    Tue. 6/30/15 12:26pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

...with an astounding piece by Human Flesh, if memory serves.
  Tue. 6/30/15 12:27pm Swami Loopynanda:

Greets all, looks/sounds like a good show. Mark, regards Erg Habbania, there's a live version on Bene G's LIVE IN BELGIUM AND HOLLAND tape. You can hear it and lots of other old tape music online at Aural Innovations LO FINEST show (#16). Tony, I'll pass onto Debbie, Mark, Hal that you're featuring MS Relationship today.
Keep up the gud work, happy Tuesday.
Avatar Tue. 6/30/15 12:29pm Tony Coulter:

Greeting, Swami Loopynanda!!

@ Turnip: I know of that VHS, but have never seen it. Is it mostly abstract visuals, or is there performance footage?
Avatar Tue. 6/30/15 12:30pm Tony Coulter:

... I mean "GreetingS" -- didn't mean to be so stingy with my hellos., Swami.

Oh, and thanks for telling Debbie et al.
Avatar Tue. 6/30/15 12:31pm Tony Coulter:

I saw Master/Slave Relationship live ages ago -- in a Brooklyn bar (Bar None).
  Tue. 6/30/15 12:31pm Mark Williams:

@Swami. Oh right, I have that live cassette. Haven't listened in ages. Thank you.
Avatar    Tue. 6/30/15 12:33pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

I still have my copy -- it's a handful of tracks from the Inner-X stable (plus NWW), visuals mostly made by the same person I believe (cheesy 1980s effort) but the Human Flesh one had some charming early computer animation... it ends with a handful of Sleep Chamber tunes, as I recall lots of ZeWizz lip-sync with blue-screen superimposed stuff. Definitely "of its time" as they say.
  Tue. 6/30/15 12:34pm Swami Loopynanda:

Wow, that must have been fun seeing MC Relationship! I've performed some with Mark, and of course, Hal. Great history there. As for Bene G-- traded a lot with Alain, never met in person or saw perform though. Carry on with the good work!
Avatar    Tue. 6/30/15 12:35pm Chris from DC:

Yay, Tape Hiss. Glad to catch at least a small portion.
Avatar    Tue. 6/30/15 12:35pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

...and yep, this is the Human Flesh tune they used in the video. A far favorite above the others on the comp.
Avatar Tue. 6/30/15 12:36pm Tony Coulter:

Btw, Human Flesh (on now) and Cortex (up next) are both Alain Neffe projects, as is Bene Gesserit.
Avatar Tue. 6/30/15 12:36pm Tony Coulter:

Hey Chris!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/30/15 12:37pm Webhamster Henry:

I miss K7 culture.
Avatar Tue. 6/30/15 12:44pm Tony Coulter:

Yes -- agreed. Unfortunately, reviving the meaningful aspects of it is not as simple as putting out new cassettes.
Avatar Tue. 6/30/15 12:46pm Tony Coulter:

Doesn't this same nurse show up on an early Nurse with Wound record?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/30/15 12:48pm Carmichael:

Well, I finally made it. Heya Tony and lingua lovers.
Avatar Tue. 6/30/15 12:49pm Tony Coulter:

Hola hey hello, Carmichael!
Avatar Tue. 6/30/15 12:55pm Tony Coulter:

Does anyone know anything about Blax (on now)? Have never heard of anything else by them.
Avatar    Tue. 6/30/15 12:56pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

that was magical.
Avatar Tue. 6/30/15 1:13pm Tony Coulter:

As I said, I saw Master/Slave Relationship live in (I'm guessing) the early '90s at a Park Slope bar called Bar None (not the more recent club of the same name). It was on 4th Avenue and 9th Street. Do any other locals remember that place? Also saw Ikue Mori, Sue Anne Harkey, and a few other things there. The bar put out a sampler LP, which I have but don't remember too clearly.
Avatar Tue. 6/30/15 1:15pm Tony Coulter:

That was my old nabe, btw, before moving out west.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/30/15 1:21pm Carmichael:

Tony, Blax also contributes to the 2003 VA comp Coffeeshop Culture, on the Expanded Soul Label. Song is called Stockholm (freeze mix). Still no idea who they are.
  Tue. 6/30/15 1:22pm bill:

i saw an early version of King Missile/Dog Fly Religion at Bar None. shortly after that i too moved out west.
Avatar Tue. 6/30/15 1:22pm Tony Coulter:

Just searched Master/Slave Relationship and the first hit was this: www.discogs.com...
  Tue. 6/30/15 1:23pm Swami Loopynanda:

Well I've never been to Spain, but I've been to Oklahoma. I saw Ikue Mori play with DNA (and the Grandmothers Of Invention) at the Rock On Broadway in SF. Also saw her solo at Mills College in Oakland (with lots of other innovative acts that night).
Avatar Tue. 6/30/15 1:24pm Tony Coulter:

@ Bill: Aha! Very interesting. So I didn't make that place up. Funny how no one ever mentions it. (Oh, and ... greetings!)
Avatar Tue. 6/30/15 1:25pm Tony Coulter:

@ Carmichael: Thanks! Wonder if that might not be a different Blax, though? Who knows!
Avatar Tue. 6/30/15 1:34pm Tony Coulter:

My copy of this tape has some of the dreaded pre- and post-echo -- as well as a bit of bleed-through ... my very least favorite things about cassettes.
Avatar Tue. 6/30/15 1:43pm Tony Coulter:

WFMU-related factoid of the day: During the '90s, Andy Ortmann (of the Eternal Now) sometimes played with two of the three people in Trou de Loup.
Avatar Tue. 6/30/15 1:46pm Tony Coulter:

... in the band Hornswoggle: www.discogs.com...

Per the sleeve to Taste of Tongues, the cover image is Kali.
Avatar Tue. 6/30/15 1:49pm Tony Coulter:

Ah, yes -- should remember my Hindu gods better than I do. Thanks, Dean!
Avatar Tue. 6/30/15 1:53pm Tony Coulter:

At least I would recognize Ganesh.
  Tue. 6/30/15 1:55pm Swami Loopynanda:

Tony, just sent an email to Tom to let him know this is on now. I've got tons of Regicide Bureau and Next Radio tapes, but never heard this one before -- great collage work, thanks for sharing.
Avatar Tue. 6/30/15 1:57pm Tony Coulter:

Thanks, Swami Goff!
Avatar Tue. 6/30/15 2:00pm Tony Coulter:

That ain't me ... the abrupt cut-offs, I mean. They are as Ganesh intended it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/30/15 2:01pm listener james from westwood:

Must run out to FedEx, but dug the hell out of today's first 2/3 of a show. Thanks, Tony!!
Avatar Tue. 6/30/15 2:02pm Tony Coulter:

Thanks, James! Happy waiting in line -- may it not be too long.

Hi Tony.
I'm sitting quietly here, enjoying the sounds (and my glass of IPA)

Heya, Stanley!
Avatar Tue. 6/30/15 2:14pm Doug Schulkind:

This evening at 6pm (ET) I will be doing a radio program in honor of beloved WFMU and Drummer Stream listener HOLLY IN NC who recently received a cancer diagnosis and is now undergoing aggressive chemotherapy. My show this evening will present exclusively all songs that Holly has commented on and liked during my past programs.

Holly may miss the show tonight (she has chemo until 6pm), but she will definitely be checking the archive as soon as she's able.

If you feel so inclined, please take a moment and leave Holly a message of support and encouragement on my playlist for tonight's show: wfmu.org...

Avatar Tue. 6/30/15 2:16pm Tony Coulter:

A beautiful idea, Doug. I really hope Holly makes a full recovery, and soon.
Avatar Tue. 6/30/15 2:37pm Tony Coulter:

Did you all sing along with that outtake from "The Sound of Music"?
Avatar Tue. 6/30/15 2:46pm Tony Coulter:

As I just said, MD 19 is better known as Mama Dada 1919: www.discogs.com...
Avatar Tue. 6/30/15 2:48pm Tony Coulter:

Meaning, at least 50 people throughout the world have heard of Mama Dada 1919.

This sounds 10 years after its time, and it's a good thing.
