@ Fiendish McTavish: Sadly, today's secret theme is not edible. You will have to make your own lunch.

Hey, Dean!
  Tue. 1/26/16 12:14pm Fiendish McTavish:

I give up then. All I can say is that everything you are playing is thoroughly delectable. I am lovin' it. It's my audible protein!
Avatar Tue. 1/26/16 12:14pm Tony Coulter:

Thanks, Fiendish. Man cannot live by bologna alone.
Avatar Tue. 1/26/16 12:18pm Tony Coulter:

Well, I'll let the secret theme out of the secret-theme bag -- mostly because it's not much of a theme. Decided to play more than the usual number of longish (circa 20-minute) pieces today -- that is all.
  Tue. 1/26/16 12:18pm Gerardo from Brussels:

Hola senor Coulter ! Long time I couldnt hear a show of yours live online! everything fine with you ?
Avatar Tue. 1/26/16 12:20pm Tony Coulter:

Gerardo!! Great to hear from you! All is well in Portland -- hope the same is true in Brussels!
  Tue. 1/26/16 12:20pm Dean:

Cool! That means either "Stairway to Heaven" two or three times in a row, or any one of the sides of "Tales from Topographic Oceans"!
  Tue. 1/26/16 12:21pm Gerardo from Brussels:

everything fine overhere !
Avatar Tue. 1/26/16 12:22pm Tony Coulter:

Someone must have released a song or album called "Stairway to Hell," no?
Avatar Tue. 1/26/16 12:23pm Kay:

Prog on, Garth!
  Tue. 1/26/16 12:23pm Dean:

A band out of Flint, Michigan. Lead something or other.
Avatar Tue. 1/26/16 12:23pm Tony Coulter:

Greets, Kay!!
  Tue. 1/26/16 12:27pm Dean:

There's a band called Elevator to Hell: http://www.discogs.com/artist/414532-Elevator-To-Hell
  Tue. 1/26/16 12:29pm Dean:

And a song by Nirvana, "Escalator to Hell." So much for the topos of pedestrian after-world transport.
Avatar Tue. 1/26/16 12:31pm Tony Coulter:

All those songwriters seem to be in a rush to get to hell. I'd take the stairs.
Avatar Tue. 1/26/16 12:36pm Tony Coulter:

Jeez -- to think I once used to be able to pronounce French fairly well. My poor tongue is getting pretty lead-footed. Apologies to all francophones....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/26/16 12:42pm northguineahills:

Really dug that Luc Henrion. Good to see Roger Doyle is still at it. I'll be in an out the next few hours. Lovely day!
Avatar Tue. 1/26/16 12:43pm Tony Coulter:

Heya, NGH!
Avatar Tue. 1/26/16 12:46pm Tony Coulter:

Yes, it is indeed good to see that Roger Doyle is still at it -- and this is not an archival release, but recent recordings.
Avatar Tue. 1/26/16 12:48pm Tony Coulter:

Some of you may know Roger Doyle for his project Operating Theatre.....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/26/16 12:54pm Carmichael:

Hiya Tony and lengthy-piece listeners. Anything from Agitation Free is about 20 minutes long.

  Tue. 1/26/16 12:55pm Dean:

Lord, yes, Carmichael! Agitation Free and/or Yatha Sidhra's "Meditation Mass," perhaps?
Avatar Tue. 1/26/16 12:57pm Tony Coulter:

I may play Yatha Free's "Agitation Meditation."
Avatar Tue. 1/26/16 12:57pm the Canterbury wood-elf:

Hey Tony. Not that surprisingly, you've chosen to play my favourite Bowie piece. And is that Canterbury-style organ playing I now hear??
Avatar Tue. 1/26/16 12:58pm Chris from DC:

Oh hey, Egg. Nice.
Avatar Tue. 1/26/16 12:58pm the Canterbury wood-elf:

So does Lindsay Cooper (again, not on this track).

It's right on the playlist. Egg. (Flightless bird, I should've said.)
Avatar Tue. 1/26/16 1:05pm V Priceless:

oh..I just thought u were doing a crossword...ha
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/26/16 1:06pm Carmichael:

Egg is a flightless bird product.
  Tue. 1/26/16 1:09pm Dean:

I'm reminded of the joke about French chefs and omelets.
Avatar Tue. 1/26/16 1:12pm the Canterbury wood-elf:

@Tony This makes me wonder, have you ever done a "Rock In Opposition" show? If not, would you consider one? That's a genre I have yet to properly explore.
Avatar Tue. 1/26/16 1:13pm Tony Coulter:

From what I understand, when the band Egg broke up, the former members joined the Byrds.
  Tue. 1/26/16 1:13pm Dean:

Surely you're yolking!
Avatar Tue. 1/26/16 1:14pm Tony Coulter:

@ the Canterbury wood-elf: Have never done a RIO show, no -- probably should. I've been marinated in that stuff for sure.
Avatar Tue. 1/26/16 1:17pm βrian:

I would've assumed they would get together as an omelette.
Avatar Tue. 1/26/16 1:17pm the Canterbury wood-elf:

Here we have some young Canterbury musicians recently paying tribute to Egg with a live version of their track "Scrambled Egg":
Avatar Tue. 1/26/16 1:20pm Tony Coulter:

Talking of new Canterbury stuff, there's the super-Canterbury-style Italian band Homunculus Res: www.youtube.com...
Avatar Tue. 1/26/16 1:20pm Tony Coulter:

Will sample the Scrambled Eggs later -- thanks, elf!
Avatar Tue. 1/26/16 1:28pm Tony Coulter:

Magma -- now in their 47th year!
Avatar Tue. 1/26/16 1:29pm Tony Coulter:

... and returning to Portland in March.....
  Tue. 1/26/16 1:30pm Dean:

Touring this year, and SF is one of their destinations. I'm hoping to see them, but I'll have to brush up on my Kobaïan.
  Tue. 1/26/16 1:31pm Dean:

Hmmm...maybe I'll venture to PDX to hear them, instead. My son would love to visit Portland again.
Avatar Tue. 1/26/16 1:31pm Tony Coulter:

When I saw them last year, some of the vocals were in French, so you might just be able to get by.
  Tue. 1/26/16 1:34pm Dean:

Maybe they'll tell omelet jokes.
Avatar Tue. 1/26/16 1:35pm Tony Coulter:

See -- there's some French!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/26/16 1:36pm Rich in Washington:

I see The Residents are coming to town (PDX) again in April.
Avatar Tue. 1/26/16 1:38pm βrian:

Speaking of French, and therefore the bane of the AZERTY keyboard:
Avatar Tue. 1/26/16 1:38pm Tony Coulter:

Hey Rich! That doesn't grab me as much, sad to say. I really love the Residents up to the mid-80s, but not so much following that. I might go anyhow, for the visual spectacle...
  Tue. 1/26/16 1:41pm Dean:

Funny, I was thinking a side of "Eskimo" might make the cut today.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/26/16 1:43pm Rich in Washington:

The main draw for me is that it's currently the only way to see the Theory of Obscurity movie, which is currently in roadshow mode.
Avatar Tue. 1/26/16 1:44pm Tony Coulter:

I did manage to see that movie in a theatre here -- it's pretty interesting and has some great footage.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/26/16 1:45pm Rich in Washington:

I saw them last time they came to town and wasn't particularly moved. I don't get what they/he are doing these days. I think their best material was before they schizm'd off into what is obviously now a pair.
Avatar Tue. 1/26/16 1:50pm Tony Coulter:

Yeah, I kind of think they've long become a dumb and lazy parody of themselves. (Sorry, eyeballed ones.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/26/16 1:52pm Rich in Washington:

They were so ahead of their times in so many ways. I do hope the movie conveys that. Completely life-changing for me, ordering their records via mailorder without ever hearing a note of their music. Totally ruined me for 'normal' music forever.
Avatar Tue. 1/26/16 1:53pm Tony Coulter:

The movie is sort of mediocre, to be honest -- but it can't help being a winner because there's a good deal of great early footage.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/26/16 1:55pm Rich in Washington:

Everyone's a documentary filmmaker nowadays, which means very few documentaries are any good, especially ones which are entirely dependent on the cooperation of the subject.
Avatar Tue. 1/26/16 1:56pm Doug Schulkind:

Greetings, Señor Coulter!
  Tue. 1/26/16 1:56pm Dean:

I remember first reading about The Residents in either Trouser Press or Back Door Man, back in the mid-'70s, a review of one of their LPs "Fingerprince" was the first LP of theirs I purchased, on the basis of that review, at the parking lot swap meet at the Capitol Records building in Hollywood.
Avatar Tue. 1/26/16 1:56pm Tony Coulter:

Greetings, Sir Doug!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/26/16 1:59pm Rich in Washington:

I remember reading about them in lots of magazines but it was finally a rather cryptic ad in Rolling Stone magazine - of all places - that finally piqued my interest to the point of mailing off for one of their catalogs.
Avatar Tue. 1/26/16 2:02pm Tony Coulter:

"Fingerprince" is one of my favorite Residents album -- sort of their take on Harry Partch (the "Six Things to a Cycle" side, anyhow).

ahoy there Tony, no snow in Portland then?

I've heard of the saponification of human tissue ...
Avatar Tue. 1/26/16 2:07pm Tony Coulter:

@ VD: There was a pretty big snowfall a couple of weeks ago -- but I guess the Portland winter has spent itself. It's quite mild now.
Avatar Tue. 1/26/16 2:07pm VANDALISM GENERATOR:

rock on violins!
  Tue. 1/26/16 2:08pm βrian:

Made any road trips out to Malheur, Tony?
Avatar Tue. 1/26/16 2:09pm VANDALISM GENERATOR:

whats your favourite rock albums with violins?
- Mine are - Its a beautiful day and MaAhavishnu Orchestra.
Avatar Tue. 1/26/16 2:09pm Tony Coulter:

Blaine Reininger (of Tuxedomoon) was the guest violinist on that XPosed 4Heads track.
Avatar Tue. 1/26/16 2:13pm Tony Coulter:

@ βrian: Haven't made it out to Malheur yet, no -- guess I'm afraid they might shoot me for being a vegan.
Avatar Tue. 1/26/16 2:14pm Tony Coulter:

@ VANDALISM GENERATOR: Have to think about that violin rock question -- but your two picks would probably be on my list.
Avatar Tue. 1/26/16 2:16pm Tony Coulter:

I will say that Malheur is a weirdly appropriate name, though....
Avatar Tue. 1/26/16 2:20pm Tony Coulter:

Brunhild Ferrari was Luc Ferrari's wife. Or I guess she still is -- he just isn't Luc Ferrari any more, sadly.
Avatar Tue. 1/26/16 2:24pm VANDALISM GENERATOR:

can't think of any bands from the punk era and beyond that had violins - but there must be a few?
Avatar Tue. 1/26/16 2:26pm Tony Coulter:

There's Nash the Slash ... and Tuxedomoon....

Abe Vigoda is really dead this time.

I will never forgot where I was and what I was doing all of the times that I had heard that Abe Vigoda was dead.
  Tue. 1/26/16 2:38pm Dean:

There was Fat & Fucked Up, a "punk" string quartet.
