Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Mon. 9/12/16 9:32am sphere:

morning. i have to mention Tim Buckleys appearance on the Monkees. It's on YouTube and that version of "Song of the Siren" is mesmerizing.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 9/12/16 9:35am Joe McG:

@sphere: I agree! He also did an amazing performance on some PBS show called "Charavari" or something like that where he played "Starsailor" stuff. Worth finding!
Avatar Mon. 9/12/16 9:36am Cecile:

ITA about that Tim Buckley performance. I saw it first when MTV was re-running all the Monkees episodes in order.
Avatar Mon. 9/12/16 9:37am Cecile:

my favorite Buckley still has to be Lorca. It didn't sound like anything then, and it doesn't really sound like anything now.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 9/12/16 9:38am Joe McG:

@Cecile: "Lorca" is amazing. I think all of his records have something to recommend them.
Avatar Mon. 9/12/16 9:40am Cecile:

Sure they do, but for me Blue Afternoon and Lorca seem to sustain the mood the most consistently.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 9/12/16 9:41am Joe McG:

@Cecile: I feel as if "Lorca" is two records. Side A and Side B are so different. "Blue Afternoon" definitely maintains a consistent mood.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 9/12/16 9:49am KP:

Good sunny Monday to you, Joe!

I like how the two halves of Lorca fit together.

Talking about movies, I saw the doc "Weiner" over the weekend. It's at times painful to watch but very compelling. The definition of a shmuck.

i watched "Risky Business" last night, the first 10 minutes is the best part, then it's downhill.

@DeemerDave: nope, this is Austropop at its worst. You know her as one of the singers on Fly Robin Fly. Real name Gertrude Wirschinger.

Some inventive WFMU dj (and I will bet it'll be Joe or Stashu) is gonna do an all Austropop show one day and it will change the world.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 9/12/16 10:27am KP:

I saw Dave Edmunds do Sabre Dane as encore out at Long Beach, LI. First the rhythm guitarist left the stage and then Dave went at on and on.

I had been confined to a wheelchair for more than twenty years. I could do nothing for myself. My pastor could not help me. I even had to watch Alabama football from my wheelchair. I was in despair. Then one morning Brother McGasko played Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Searching," like I had been searching for so many years. Suddenly, I rose above my wheelchair, all of my own volition. I walked. I ran. I have been healed by the Skynyrd. Thank you, thank you Brother Joe. Brother Joe heals. WFMU heals.
