@just dc pat @sphere: thanks!
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 10:27am Wild Neil:

In 1986 no google, so finding out about bands was mostly done by reading the Village Voice and going to record stores and record shows in my experience. NOW you can instantly get information and increase your collection goals exponentially. Thank GOD for FMU on the net. In 1986 I was all about the vinyl albums. Used CDs were not a commodity at this point. In 1996 when I got to Las Cruces NM used CDs were very easy to get. Anybody have any idea when cheap used CDs of bands you would actually want start becoming available?
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 10:30am Jim Devoid:

No Discharge 'Grave New World'??? that came out in '86 ;)

Chris M: What percentage of your year-themed shows is music you heard at them time, and how much is stuff you've discovered in the following years?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/31/16 10:47am cory:

how are you djs making me like jew's harp? how?
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 10:47am Wild Neil:

@Cecile-Back in 1996 or so there was a chain of music stores in NM that had a HUGE used CD section (VERY chaotic and unorganized) called Hastings. They had used CDs a-plenty. I just remembered. Spirit Winds in Las Cruces (also a Café and Gift Shop) had a great "college" selection of hand-picked CDs.
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 10:48am Chris M.:

@Cecile: maybe half and half roughly

  Thu. 3/31/16 11:08am Dean:

There were a couple bad years during the second or third century B.C. For example, this performance of a tune from Papyrus Wien 2982 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_oCCpKLGZTw) isn't exactly American Bandstand material. But the album on which it appears is otherwise really good.

AMdM did some really marvelous records during the heyday of Harmonia Mundi. I'm guessing the one you have, βrian, is either the tarantelles or the villancicos. One of them features a smashed Cognac bottle and a lawnmower.

Tongue was firmly planted in cheek, bill, when I poo-poo'd the papyrus. Something tells me almost nothing would be out of place at FMU, except maybe Tchaikovsky? Telemann? Villa-Lobos (about whom Stravinsky reportedly said, "Why is it that whenever I hear a piece of music I don't like, it's always by Villa Lobos?").

@Polyus: Yeah, but did you (do you?) feel oddly mentholated and cool?

Roky for king of 1986!
  Thu. 3/31/16 11:33am Polyus:

I guess the cough drops kinda have that effect, yes.
  Thu. 3/31/16 11:33am Dean:

The piano trio? No love?

I love Telemann because he wrote SO FRICKIN' MUCH, much of it tedious. His music seems to have been composed as a distraction, while he was paying bills or something. The beauty of Telemann's music is that it is exquisitely generic. I even have an LP of random chamber music of his. The cover is a painting by Degas. What?!

Subject me to Elgar, please.

Wow this Tožibabe is awesome

I was wondering when you were going to play Tožibabe ....
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 11:35am Wild Neil:

@Polyus-the best recent cough drop experience I had in the car were using CVS lemon cough drops. There were like little mentholated miracles that soothed my savagely sore throat.
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 11:35am just dc pat:

Tožibabe has only been played one other time on FMU on Bodega Pop.

You got something from Discharge lined up? I remember a metal friend giving me a tape of “Grave New World” in 1986 but I couldn’t get into it… Just too intense for my new wave-isa tastes. www.discogs.com...
  Thu. 3/31/16 11:38am Dean:

Song X is from 1986.

jdcp, that's twice any many spins as Elgar

I'm sure "pomp and circumstances" has been played here numerous times.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/31/16 11:39am Cliff:

I should've tuned in earlier, I didn't realize today was 1986....I'll catch the rest of the show on the archives

(And Tožibabe was awesome)

I don't know whether Flipper baited audiences in every town they played, but I saw them in DC in the '80's and they did then. Played a version of Sex Bomb where they played the first -- what 3 -- measures but not the forth, the declension bit that goes Ba bom bom bom bom. Deliberately grating

Never knew so much amazing music was coming out in the mid 80s
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 3/31/16 11:53am Andrew Waterloo:

There's a nice live recording of Flipper on Youtube that features the bassist having to replace a broken bass with that of GPO from Throbbing Gristle.

I forget...was a-ha a popular group in 1986?
  Thu. 3/31/16 11:54am Dean:

Damn, "Never Gonna Give You Up" was 1987.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/31/16 11:55am Cecile:

I have a friend from Bermuda. I should play it for him sometime.

ryab, yeah, there was! Even with me not liking a lot of stuff, I still managed to spend a ton of money on records.

Great show, Chris M...outside that DC crack from Flipper...

Thanks Chris M.! Looking forward to 1976
Avatar Fri. 4/1/16 11:41pm tikbartok:

Im pretty sure that Camper Van Beethoven only had two albums out at the time. I was living in New York and my only exposure to their music was though FMU and two shows. One at Folk City, and one at CBGB's. Im sure this was '85 '86. Thanks for the memories!
