Heya, sfolk16!

Yes, I thought that segue might wake some of you up....
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 12:46pm Tony Coulter:

That Shiny Men track has a vaguely Canterbury-esque streak, methinks....
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 12:53pm Tony Coulter:

Judging from the accuplaylist's autofill function, I'm the only person on FMU who ever plays Italian prog....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/17/16 12:54pm Carmichael:

I would think Fabio would play that stuff.
  Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/17/16 12:55pm sfolk16:

and for that we are all grateful !
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 12:56pm Tony Coulter:

@ Carmichael: Well, yeah, Fabio does play some Italian avant prog, I guess -- like the great Pierrot Lunaire.... but not the proggy prog
  Tue. 5/17/16 12:56pm Dean:

Try Le Orme. Fabio et al. have played them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/17/16 12:57pm Cecile:

25 or 6 to 4?
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 12:57pm Tony Coulter:

True: mostly the psych Le Orme, though, I'd venture....

*cringes* Yeesh, those Blood Sweat & Tears lyrics! This song alone might have kicked off punk. The Ramones were sitting around sniffing glue, heard that, and said 'Yo, we don't know how to play no instruments or nuthin, but we gotta do somthin 'bout dis.'

Hello Tony & foot fall fans.

Ahhhh, I've always wondered who the artist(s) were on this track.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/17/16 1:32pm Cecile:

Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 1:33pm Tony Coulter:

No, I think he wrote "The Margarine King."

Frank Zappa on a really bad day, lyrics by Paul McCartney.

"Summer Madness" originally released on the equally-fine "Light of Worlds" LP, I think.

Is this Bene Gesserit a new recording? if so, amazing they're still so good after all these years.
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 1:52pm Tony Coulter:

@ MrFab: Yep, it is all brand new stuff. They are as great as they ever were -- which can be said of few groups that have been together as long as they've been (of course, they are married).
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 1:53pm Tony Coulter:

.... meaning, they have a lot of time to work on songs together....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/17/16 1:59pm Cecile:

well. maybe it hurts a little.
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 2:01pm geezerette:

Disco was so agressive!
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 2:04pm geezerette:

meant Prog or Ag.
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 2:06pm Tony Coulter:

What I've always been struck by is that anything can become disco with the addition of a disco beat. For example, I have three disco versions of "In A Gadda Da Vida."
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 2:07pm geezerette:

Play them!
  Tue. 5/17/16 2:08pm Dean:

I'd love to hear that Arditti Xenakis track with a disco beat.
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 2:09pm Tony Coulter:

@ geezerette: I will, some day, for sure. Here's one of them: www.discogs.com...
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 2:10pm Tony Coulter:

@ Dean: I'll have to try that. I bet it would make all the kids get down and boogie oogie oogie.
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 2:11pm geezerette:

Listening to these things what strikes me about disco is an American type of forced cheerfulness, the peer pressure to deny any less than cheerful thought or feeling. Punk seems inevitable right?
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 2:15pm Tony Coulter:

Of course, there was also punk disco: www.punk-disco.com
  Tue. 5/17/16 2:16pm Dean:

Disco Xenakis sounds great! Start with this:
...and add this:

Hmm. That link above seems to be broken. Maybe this instead: en.wikipedia.org...
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 2:17pm geezerette:

The Hippie thing was equally agressive about enforced "wild & free" behaviour and professed belief in magic.
The positives were the anarchic sense of humor and The Whole Earth Catalogue pragmatism and generosity.

Punk disco! That's hilarious!

Hey Tony - diggin' this Twenty Sixty Six and Then...looks like it's pretty rare, in any format.
Avatar Tue. 5/17/16 2:21pm Tony Coulter:

Actually, it just got re-reissued, so it should no be relatively easy to find.

Any connection with Gabriel Bondage?

@ V Priceless: That's a mistake on discog's part -- it's definitely "Eve," not "Eye"...
