Does this qualify? (Suspect Device)

Not complaining, just wondering.
Avatar Mon. 4/4/16 12:46am Kurt Gottschalk:

as a cover? it's a live band playing something based on someone else's song.

or does it qualify as punk. either way, that's up to y'all's to decide. i just push buttons.
  Mon. 4/4/16 12:49am Listener Robert:

So, KG, you felt you had to expurgate the Sex Pistols? Are safe harbor hours not a thing any more?

Andrew, it may have been more tolerable if it weren't so loud but it was still pretty stupid. Mostly we thought it was funny that he was asking the question and we answered with let's go. We had some nice Indian food across the street.

Green Day does the best Sex Pistols imitation, by far.
Avatar Mon. 4/4/16 1:32am Clay Pigeon:

Yes, Kurt. Your FMU street cred rating will plummet, but you'll pick up fringe listeners in the Wilkes-Barre area and in pockets of Delaware and Northwestern Maryland. Your strong with the female (45-55) bracket, but you've fallen off a bit with 30-40 males who are confused by your gender-stoic print media stubborness. It's your call.

You've always spoken strongly to that demographic segment, Chalky, with that patented purr of yours. Spot scans in weaker markets reveal that adding the odd Head East cut, or even some Petra might bolster you with working men (45-55). Remember the old adage ... when all else fails ...

Yes, Coela ... Freddie's Dead and Superfly may not have earned him same=breath mentioning with Peter Cetera and Company, but Mayfield 's catalog has shown itself to be resilient over the years. Sweet Exorcist is still a top seller in New Mexico, for instance.
Avatar Mon. 4/4/16 1:46am coelacanth:

when i first heard sexpistols (in 1976) i heard a snarl!
...but yes, Johnny's a bit whiny; but not nearly as much so as Billy Joe, who's whiny with no snarl at all. (or at least not a convincing one.)

As far as Head East goes, the visceral impact of Never Been Any Reason from Flat As A Pancake still reverberates from Dekalb to Cairo. Even Veruca Salt members will attest to this.
Avatar Mon. 4/4/16 1:50am coelacanth:

Clay, to be honest i don't even know any of his late output. i'm pretty sure i wouldn't like it much; but his first album ("Curtis") and "superfly" & his Impressions material is enough to make him one of my heroes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/4/16 1:51am pacific standard simon:

Sometimes, though, what comes after is a sucker-punch to the head.

thanks for bringing the m'west humor, cp.

...maybe Curtis went the way of Stevie Wonder. many younger folks don't even know that he was a god among men, as his music got SOO shmaltzy.

NOTHING touches stevie in the early 70s.
Avatar Mon. 4/4/16 1:55am Clay Pigeon:

I gotcha Coela ... Mighty Mighty Spade and Whitey, We The People Darker Than Blue, If There's Hell Below (We're All Gonna Go), Move on Up, these were perky numbers. Socially powerful, even. But, hold them up side by side to "No Tell Lover", "Old Days", and even "Hard For ME To Tell You I'm Sorry" and you'll see that Rock N Roll HAll Of Fame Inductees, Chicago, towered above all comers in their era. Especially during the post-Kath, Danny Daucus years, when Laudir Oliviera added his congas to the mix and things really took flight.

  Mon. 4/4/16 2:02am PJ:

@CSS: Lydon's vocals (and lyrics) are really what elevated the Pistols above all the other punks in their (UK) class - otherwise, it's just speeded up Chuck Berry and Stooges (which I love, but, you know , it had been done before.)
Avatar Mon. 4/4/16 2:02am Clay Pigeon:

Am I the only one who thinks Chicago was better than The Beatles? I mean, stack them up side-by-side - track-by-track - and lighter fare like Yesterday, Michelle, A Day In The Life ---- these just can't hold up to 25 Or 6-2-4, Color My World, etc. Big rock writers are starting to concur. In the next year, you'll see a seismic shift in support for the Nice Nine ... Chicago!

  Mon. 4/4/16 2:05am PJ:

@Clay: I do not doubt that there are many Top 40 listeners who will concur that Chicago was the most innovative pop group of all time. As open-minded (and open-mined) as I try to be, I, for one, do not want to meet any of those people.

Clay, i'll be blunt! if you ever played chicago on your show -unless it was from the first album or the (white) 3-4 record live box, i turned your show off!
  Mon. 4/4/16 2:10am PJ:

And I have a feeling there is at least a little tongue in your cheek, Clay, but if you are going to throw down with the horn-heavy early 70s top 40 groups, Blood Sweat & Tears gets my vote over Chicago (and EWF dusts them both.)

But I would appreciate if you could elaborate on the Dennis Wilson/Chicago/James William Guercio/oil extraction/Country Music Television connection,
Avatar Mon. 4/4/16 2:14am coelacanth:

actually, considering that i consider c.1965 - c.1976 the renaissance of creativity in modern music, chicago (post "chicago transit authority") was one of the worst bands ever! (in my so humble opinion!)
Avatar Mon. 4/4/16 2:14am Clay Pigeon:

Coela, I considered the 4.2% of the audience which may drop off if any CHicago album after say, VII, is played. It's a risk I take. As for Blood,, Sweat, and Tears, those Hot Pockets eaters can't carry Chicago's collective jock strap, though David Clayton-Thomas moose-throated yowls were amusing for a time. As far as EWF, I'll not disparage them. The outfits were occasionally too pastel in nature, but they could pen a pleasnt enough ditty, and did, on deveral occasions.
  Mon. 4/4/16 2:15am PJ:

"Initials BB", as Serge G. put it.

(it might be called "the 59th st. bridge song"!)
Avatar Mon. 4/4/16 2:18am Clay Pigeon:

If Bob Lamm had given up his Wurlitzer a year earlier, a lot of the bad stuff might not have gone down. Instead, he bought a Kimball "Expression Machine" with Color-Glo keys when other bands were getting synthesizers, and Chicago fell-out for a couple of years and had to play catch-up with lesser bands like Puzzle and Chase. It was wrong. Coela, YOU are awesome. Chalky is awesome. I am full of shit and totally kidding and now I must go to zzzzzzzz. Love you all. Goodnight!
  Mon. 4/4/16 2:19am PJ:

Clay, I feel like there is a lot of "hot" 70s rock information you are sitting on. If only there was the equivalent of a FOIA request one could file with FMU.

David Gates wrote a great track for Brooklyn Bridge' second LP. Look it up!

Clay, you know we love you for your sincere appreciation of smooth heartland rock. And, for what it's worth, "Saturday in the Park" will be what saves Bob Lamm when the revolution comes.

That must have been the 3rd or 4th time I've heard a version of Hurdy Gurdy Man in the last two weeks, not sure what to make of it yet. This sounds like my kind of cover for sure though. Minimal, great vocal, tremolo, nice.
Avatar Mon. 4/4/16 2:36am coelacanth:

it's pretty astounding how many worthy versions there are of this song.

Avatar Mon. 4/4/16 2:43am coelacanth:

(maybe i'll still do it,anyway)
Avatar Mon. 4/4/16 2:45am Kurt Gottschalk:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/4/16 2:46am Alejandro in TO:

hey coela! We're under a pretty unusual blanket of snow here.
Avatar Mon. 4/4/16 2:50am coelacanth:

i hear the revolution from both sides now.
from up and down.
-and still, somehow...
Avatar Mon. 4/4/16 2:52am coelacanth:

Jandro, how much? we got a few inches here last night too...and it stayed cold enough that it's still here.
...it's my fault, of course. i sowed seeds in pots on the fire escape yesterday.
