no need to pretend wrt Ella - that was great. You simply sequed into an excerpt from 4 33...

and then into commentary on the preceding number...

Gladys is playing in my area in July. I should go.

i've never seen her but my guess is you wouldn't regret it.

according to Wikipedia (the free encyclopedia that anyone can edit), his injuries from the incident involved a broken nose and (he alleges in his lawsuit) a brain hemorrhage

While you're GTFU, @RG, can you look up how many holes it takes to fill...
Avatar Tue. 12/13/16 4:09pm Kurt Gottschalk:

it'd depend on the size of the hole, wouldn't it?
  Tue. 12/13/16 4:10pm Dean:

Zappa addressed that conundrum with a 1975 album.
Avatar Tue. 12/13/16 4:10pm geezerette:

Pretty sure Royal Albert Hall was designed with an expandable waistband to accommodate variations in hole dimensions.

Now, that I know that, I feel kind of bad about the gif

Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/13/16 4:48pm Doug Schulkind:

Actually, Kurt requested that his salary be tripled. I offered quadrupled, but he demanded tripled. (He has a weird thing about the number 3.) But I told him, no, I just can't do tripled.
Avatar Tue. 12/13/16 4:48pm geezerette:

Loved Ian Dury.
Kurt,your shows have been splendid!!!
Avatar Tue. 12/13/16 4:49pm Kurt Gottschalk:

As long as it's not "Microphalangeal " (small fingers) , I think he can squeak by.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/13/16 5:11pm Scraps:

only 1973!
Avatar Tue. 12/13/16 5:18pm glenn:

"His most notable success, of course, was the underground 1973 pre-punk hit When Christine Comes Around/I'm Gonna Smash Your Face In that he recorded under the band name Grudge for the Black label, and has become an underground punk rock classic to this day. LAURICE has always said that he was doing punk before punk"
Avatar Tue. 12/13/16 5:21pm Kurt Gottschalk:

thx, glenn!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/13/16 5:21pm Scraps:

Well, lots of people were "doing punk before punk", especially if you're using "punk" liberally
Avatar Tue. 12/13/16 5:23pm glenn:

well yeah. i'm a liberal. i wouldn't use it conservatively.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/13/16 5:24pm Scraps:

Right! And I was talking to Laurice, not Glenn; I know Glenn was quoting. ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/13/16 5:26pm Scraps:

And the groovy part is, Laurice is not here to respond.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/13/16 5:27pm Scraps:

(I think.)

Terry Riley! :)
Avatar Tue. 12/13/16 5:55pm Kurt Gottschalk:

damn near wore me out, veeps!
Avatar Tue. 12/13/16 6:03pm Kurt Gottschalk:

three hours later - i didn't know "it's oh so quiet" (the bjork song we heard up near the top) was originally recorded by betty hutton. makes perfect sense.
  Tue. 12/13/16 6:06pm Dean:

Forty-five years later, I didn't know (until just now) that the "Riley" in "Baba O'Riley" is the guy who's music is playing.
  Tue. 12/13/16 6:07pm Dean:

*whose (goddammit)
Avatar Tue. 12/13/16 6:08pm Kurt Gottschalk:

i've heard lots of stories about that. i think it was a multi-layered keith moon joke. apparently it's what he used to call the maharishi mahesh yogi , who pete townshend was interested in although perhaps not as devoted as george harrison.
  Tue. 12/13/16 6:10pm Dean:

Well, then, why wasn't the song called "Booboo O'Riley," huh?
Avatar Tue. 12/13/16 6:12pm Kurt Gottschalk:

i think that's yours to compose, dino!
Avatar Tue. 12/13/16 6:13pm northguineahills:

Didn't Zeitkratzer do a realization of one Eno's ambient albums?
  Tue. 12/13/16 6:14pm Dean:

I tried my hand at "Won't Get Sued Again." Abject failure.
Avatar Tue. 12/13/16 6:16pm Kurt Gottschalk:

ngh, did they? i'm not aware. but here's their stockhausen cd at target, apparently: www.target.com...
Avatar Tue. 12/13/16 6:17pm Kurt Gottschalk:

dean, HA!
  Tue. 12/13/16 6:19pm Dean:

Bang on a Can did "Music for Airports," evidently. Zeitkratzer did a mean Xenakis realization, though.
Avatar Tue. 12/13/16 6:20pm northguineahills:

ahhh, that's what I was thinking about, Dean. Didn't Bang on a Can premier that for a newish wing at JFK 10-12 years ago?
Avatar Tue. 12/13/16 6:21pm Kurt Gottschalk:

i really liked boac's 'airports.' there was a gorgeous dvd for it as well, all slow and heavily treated scenes from airports.
  Tue. 12/13/16 6:21pm Dean:

That sounds familiar, ngh.

I'll share here a link I've shared with a couple DJs and on one comment board. Seems apt. It's a project by a friend of mine. He treats shortwave radio transmissions.

Avatar Tue. 12/13/16 6:22pm Kurt Gottschalk:

thanks, copying it to myself to check later!
Avatar Tue. 12/13/16 6:23pm glenn:

i have doug hilsinger's remake tribute thingy of taking tiger mountain, which is pretty great.

Eno's new record, release date 1-1-17: www.brian-eno.net
Avatar Tue. 12/13/16 6:45pm Kurt Gottschalk:

any word on it yet?
Avatar Tue. 12/13/16 6:47pm V Priceless:

it continues the "Discreet Music"/"Thursday Afternoon" vibe, according to Eno
Avatar Tue. 12/13/16 6:48pm Kurt Gottschalk:

interesting. i haven't even listened to the last one yet.
Avatar Tue. 12/13/16 6:50pm V Priceless:

"The Ship"? It's pretty cool - great cover of VU's "I'm Set Free"
Avatar Tue. 12/13/16 6:52pm Kurt Gottschalk:

need to catch up to that.
