I think the current incarnation of Swans beats anything I have heard in the volume sweepstakes. It's a weird sort of loud, though - not shrill, not low. Right in the midrange.

@Brian in UK: Very classy. SBD. Being mere youth, we were of course enchanted with the scatological. We envisioned creating an SBD Mime Troupe. Now, of course, I'm all grown up. But fortunately my kids aren't.

Wiki says Guinness World Records no longer celebrate loudest bands 'for fear of promoting damage to ears'

Prince Rama sounds exciting

@Dean Les Petomane Brothers. Blowing out candles from one yard and setting light etc. Timeless fun.
Only grown-ups listen to WFMU.

Well Brendan some fun has been taken out of it since earplugs have become almost standard.

@kp id give my right ear to see them

Miinistry in the late 80's in NYC was super-loud. Also: a dude wearing an SS shirt picked me up by a belt loop and threw me about eight or ten feet. He was like 6'8". At this point, I left the pit and went upstairs to watch from the balcony. I wanna say Roseland ballroom?
Avatar Mon. 8/15/16 11:23am JakeGould:

This Prince Rama is pretty damned good.

Haaaa! I did. Absolutely amazing. Right in front of Townshend.

Prince Rama shows are well worth attending. They're a great live band with a contagious positive attitude.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 8/15/16 11:23am Joe McG:

@Jake: It's going to be a great show on Thursday! They are also in Asbury Park on Friday.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/15/16 11:24am Carmichael:

My loudest concert was Steppenwolf. Stood in front of a speaker stack on one side of the stage. My ears are still ringing, and the concert was in the 70s ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/15/16 11:25am KP:

Sound levels are different though since PAs started being so effective. everything goes through them. The intense physical presence of the stacks is not there.
  Mon. 8/15/16 11:25am Brendan:

Its funny that we put plugs in our ears to listen to music, like putting bumps on the roads we drive.or the people who live in front of those speed bumps wearing earplugs because of the angry motorists honking. Its a vicious cycle

Joe, same old story Prince Rama visiting Europe but missing UK. Must be the referendum.

And if you're going to the show Thursday I recommend getting there in time to see the opener, Hey Anna (THREE sisters in this band). I saw them for the first time last month and they were tremendous.

A word of warning about Prince Rama shows: you might end up hugging strangers
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/15/16 11:28am KP:

There are no strangers at wfmu
Avatar Mon. 8/15/16 11:30am Wild Neil:

Does Prince Rama like Styx?
  Mon. 8/15/16 11:31am βrian:

Steppenwolf? Were they playing in a dumpy bar on Dort Hwy, Flint, Michigan?
  Mon. 8/15/16 11:34am Brendan:

A stranger is just someone I haven't hugged yet.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/15/16 11:36am Carmichael:

They could have been, Brian. However, I saw them in Tucson AZ, in an equally dumpy beer bar.

If it weren't for Beavis and Butt-head, I wouldn't have known about Deee-Lite. Hoo boy.

I would have thought Deee-Lite were way before their time, but it makes sense
  Mon. 8/15/16 11:40am Brendan:

Did these guys ever get hats when they made it?
Avatar Mon. 8/15/16 11:40am Wild Neil:

Ground hog=marmot. Marmota Monax.
@Brendan-they did, but Devo stole the package off the porch and took their hats and called them Energy Domes. NoT!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Mon. 8/15/16 11:41am Ken From Hyde Park:

Furthermore: Bootsy. Dumb autocorrect.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 8/15/16 11:43am Joe McG:

@Ken: Don't worry. Yes, it was Bootsy and Q-Tip on that remix. I like it better than the LP version.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/15/16 11:45am Greg from ZONE 5:

Agreed, Joe. Bootsy & Q-Tip make perfect songs better.

I'm thinking of ducking out for a triple espresso, but I fear I'll need something stronger.
Avatar Mon. 8/15/16 11:49am Wild Neil:

This show was literally all over the place today. Really. Wow. Talk about free form.
Avatar Mon. 8/15/16 11:53am JakeGould:

Has Bootsy considered making a “Bootsie Roll?” I mean, Tootsie Rolls are kinda grandparent candy nowadays… They need to tap into that lucrative youth market again.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 8/15/16 11:53am Brian in UK:

Great show, Joe. Hope you fans keep you cool.

Loudest Surface Noise ever!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Mon. 8/15/16 11:58am fred:

Damn, they're playing in Paris next month, but it's an overnight show. I know the drill and the venue: it's a three-hour walk through clumps of aggressive drunks to get back home

Thanks, Joe!
