hey Fabio - deliver us from evil!

@McGuffin-somebody has been looking for you, they got chased by a biplane in a cornfield...it was really scary!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 7/21/16 3:12pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Greetings, Fabio and failing students.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 7/21/16 3:14pm JtotheK:

good afternoon everyone.
Avatar Thu. 7/21/16 3:16pm MacGuffin:

Wild Neil, by the time such climaxic scenes occur, the macguffin has long since been forgotten. You knew that.
Avatar Thu. 7/21/16 3:17pm MacGuffin:

(Is climaxic a word? What did I mean? You knew what I meant.)
Avatar Thu. 7/21/16 3:19pm Wild Neil:

"Climactic" is what I knew you meant. Still, its cool to know that you are....here...at WFMU. Where else would you be, right?
Avatar Thu. 7/21/16 3:21pm Wild Neil:

Suicide reminds me of the "Me and my Rhythm Box" from the movie Liquid Sky...the darker side of New Wave....although I understand they started earlier than that....
Avatar Thu. 7/21/16 3:21pm MacGuffin:

What, then, is the adjective for things related to the climate?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 7/21/16 3:21pm JtotheK:

The 'Hitchcock by Truffaut' book goes into quite a bit of detail about the MacGuffin...good read!
Avatar Thu. 7/21/16 3:22pm MacGuffin:

Oh, I know...'climatic'!
Avatar Thu. 7/21/16 3:24pm MacGuffin:

Anyway, here we all are. Things are underway. The macguffin has done its work. That is all.

wow, thank you fabio
  Thu. 7/21/16 3:27pm P-90:

Ciao Fabio and Failure fanatics
Avatar Thu. 7/21/16 3:28pm MacGuffin:

No, AW, 'meteorologic' is to 'weather' as 'climatic' is to 'climatic' as 'climactic' is to 'climax'...or should that be orgasmic?

Avatar Thu. 7/21/16 3:29pm MacGuffin:

oops i meant climate
Avatar    Thu. 7/21/16 3:32pm Chris from DC:

This is fantastic.
  Thu. 7/21/16 3:33pm P-90:

I should have guessed Fabio would be one of the DJs to do a Vega/Suicide memorial set. A choice one. Bravo.
  Thu. 7/21/16 3:35pm mary:

great sequencing
Avatar Thu. 7/21/16 3:36pm Wild Neil:

I think I read they listed their concert as a "Punk Mass"....

just like juan epstein
Avatar Thu. 7/21/16 3:40pm Wild Neil:

Like Juan Epstien the Puerto Rican Jew from Welcome Back Kotter! Anybody remember him?? Aw, CEE you beat me to it!
  Thu. 7/21/16 3:41pm Marc15:

It was definitely an odd combination for 78 years ago. Taboo even
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 7/21/16 3:41pm melinda:

I was just thinking there's someone else of that parentage but I couldn't think of who.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 7/21/16 3:42pm melinda:

Yeah, he was older than Epstein.

I learned about Loop from Pandora. They are pretty awesome!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 7/21/16 3:44pm Goatpuncher:

Ha ha, Aphex Twin, really? Is that one completely unrecognizable and seemingly perhaps not actually related to the original (as with Aphex Twin's remixes)?
Avatar    Thu. 7/21/16 3:49pm V Priceless:

apparently Vega was inspired to start a band after seeing The Stooges at the New York State Pavilion, on the grounds of the '64 Worlds Fair in Flushing (which I think was Iggy's first NY gig, in '70)...for those locals familiar with this totally alien-looking structure, which still stands, and is the subject of an excellent documentary called "Modern Ruin", it must have been a really cool & freaky place to see a rock & roll show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 7/21/16 3:51pm melinda:

@V-Priceless: no kidding! I've seen photos, never visited.
Avatar Thu. 7/21/16 3:52pm geezerette:

His singing is like a kind of electronic shamanism;incantatory.
It's dark but beautiful and strangely pure. Never knew about him till this week and I'm finding his music compelling and singular.

Oh yes here we are.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 7/21/16 3:59pm melinda:

I like that description, geezerette. I only learned of him last year and didn't know much, thoroughly enjoying the tributes.
Avatar Thu. 7/21/16 4:02pm geezerette:

Thanks melinda! So am I. :)
Avatar Thu. 7/21/16 4:09pm Wild Neil:

When I lived in NYC I used to ride my bike out the the Worlds Fair Pavilion in Queens....the globe is weird and inspired by Buckminster Fuller!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 7/21/16 4:12pm melinda:

I'd like to see any of Robert Frank's films but CS Blues sounds especially juicy.
Avatar Thu. 7/21/16 4:13pm Wild Neil:

CS Blues is playing ONLY at 9:50pm...its the only show...
  Thu. 7/21/16 4:15pm Lucy Goosy:

I really dig the background music in these talksets.

Got to see Cabiria last week in BK. Cool experience and amazing someone pulled that off in 1914.

massively digging.
Avatar Thu. 7/21/16 4:22pm Wild Neil:

This sounds vaguely middle eastern...and amazing! WOW, WTF is this????? Is this still Gate?????
  Thu. 7/21/16 4:24pm Goatpuncher:

Great gobbling glamours, this is excellent.
Avatar Thu. 7/21/16 4:24pm Wild Neil:

@Fabio-is this Gate?
Avatar    Thu. 7/21/16 4:25pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

New to Gate. Seems to capture the best vibe of 80s loop/cassette culture. Reminded of many lovely things.
Avatar Thu. 7/21/16 4:26pm Wild Neil:

This is truly great! I concur Rev.!! Its awesome...the drumming is really sublime.
Avatar Thu. 7/21/16 4:26pm MacGuffin:

This is great.
Avatar Thu. 7/21/16 4:28pm Wild Neil:

This song is about 20 minutes long.

Hypnotic, too.

Was Gate influenced by Suicide?
  Thu. 7/21/16 4:34pm bloopy:

great head music
Avatar Thu. 7/21/16 4:36pm Wild Neil:

Oh...that's it?
Avatar Thu. 7/21/16 4:37pm βrian:

I think Sluice would be a better band name. Just like the sound of it.
Avatar    Thu. 7/21/16 4:39pm Chris from DC:

Ended up getting Marriage of Metals after you played it last time.
Avatar    Thu. 7/21/16 4:42pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Per the miracle of social media, Arrow had his dental surgery recently; got that lovely smile back...
  Thu. 7/21/16 4:43pm Dave in SoDak:

There was a band from Norway called Gäte (note the umlaut) in the 00's. Art school kids making kind of like, heavy Radiohead type stuff. Not bad. This is decidedly different but I like it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 7/21/16 4:44pm Andrew Waterloo:

Isn't there a drum and tuba black metal band called The Gate as well?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 7/21/16 4:48pm Andrew Waterloo:

yup... www.thegateofcthulhu.com...
  Thu. 7/21/16 4:48pm GGG:

Andrew - there is, Berger has played them on his show, it's fantastic doom...
Avatar    Thu. 7/21/16 4:48pm Chris from DC:

I may end up getting this one next. Really wish I could go see Menche.
Avatar Thu. 7/21/16 4:50pm βrian:

Not an umlaut, apparently, but a ring: Gåte
It means "riddle" according to the Google.
Avatar    Thu. 7/21/16 4:53pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

yeh, I thought I might have heard of an older band called Gate which was in the whole kraut/eurock scene, but it could have been any of those, evidently..
Avatar    Thu. 7/21/16 4:54pm V Priceless:

Softs outtake?

love Menche super great show !!!

whoops, Britney Spears is having vocal problems

  Thu. 7/21/16 4:58pm Dean:

Who'd a thunk Britney Spears was channeling Soft Machine?
  Thu. 7/21/16 4:59pm Dave in SoDak:

AH. You're correct, βrian. I remember now - "Go - Teh"
Avatar    Thu. 7/21/16 5:01pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

This is putting the clergy in the headspace for Trevor Wishart's RED BIRD. A little dining music for later...
  Thu. 7/21/16 5:02pm Dean:

This reminds me of Charles Dodge's "Any Resemblance Is Purely Coincidental," with JLL substituted for Enrico Caruso.
  Thu. 7/21/16 5:16pm Dean:

..."this" being the Trythall. This, on the other hand (being the Aaron Martin), reminds me of Ingenting Kollektiv.
  Thu. 7/21/16 5:20pm Dean:

"Any Resemblance..." was '78, hence the substitution runs in the other direction. I suspect Dodge, too, was composing with razor blades.
  Thu. 7/21/16 5:22pm Dean:

Dalachinsky and Bruce Gallanter show up at every show in NYC. I don't know how they do it.

Stooges influenced Suicide (1970 woulda been 'Fun House' era - which makes utter sense) - the Velvets surely - Elvis & Rockabilly
...& FMU won't like this - but I think surely - thedoors...

...what might any Electronic antecedents have been?...

'WhiteLight/WhiteHeat' particularly...

...the Terry Rileys outside of 'Pop' - but the originality, the commitment, the vision - it makes sense Vega was a visual Artist as well...

Jimmy Page stole this riff.

Just found out now that Alan Vega died. I've been out of the loop. Thanks for the tribute. Some amazing sounds.
Avatar Thu. 7/21/16 5:43pm geezerette:

Hearing this music is like being inside sonic architecture.
Feels like slipping inside of St. Patrick's Cathedral in a heavy rainstorm. Don't know how else to say it.
Avatar Thu. 7/21/16 5:44pm geezerette:

I love Terry Riley's music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 7/21/16 5:46pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

cecile made the observation that Suicide are Rockabilly w/ Synths - which is so total & obvious I didn't see it...I did compare hearing their album the 1st time to hearing the Cramps' the 1st time...

@Rev Rabbit: My first Suicide cassette, I told myself, "holy crap this is rockabilly and I like it!" (I was 19)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 7/21/16 5:50pm melinda:

I thought of the Cramps too upon first listen.
