Can anyone ID the LP under today's cassettes? It's a recent 2017 release.

Greets, doctorjazz! The Blitzoids are ace.

Interesting 3 Penny cover there.

The lead vocalist sounds like Mr. Rogers' brother (if he had one)

Ahoy, NGH!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/6/17 12:15pm doctorjazz:

Velvets cover! Cool!
  Tue. 6/6/17 12:17pm Dean:

Can't ID the LP cover, but I'm certain it isn't Renée Fleming's "Distant Light" recital of Barber, Hillborg, and Björk songs. That's CD only.
Avatar Tue. 6/6/17 12:18pm Tony Coulter:

Hey, Dean! It's not "Colonel Sanders Does the Top Disco Hits" either. Just saying....
  Tue. 6/6/17 12:19pm MrFab:

Ha, this is a cover of a Mad Magazine record!
Avatar Tue. 6/6/17 12:19pm Tony Coulter:

Hey, MrFab! You are right!!
  Tue. 6/6/17 12:19pm Dean:

Is that your coy way of saying it's the 40th anniversary Sgt. Pepper's?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/6/17 12:20pm doctorjazz:

This is just a riot!
Avatar Tue. 6/6/17 12:22pm Tony Coulter:

@ Dean: I wish it was the 40th anniversary -- that'd make me 10 years younger.

Anyway, today's mystery record is from Ju Suk Reet Meate of Smegma: www.discogs.com...
  Tue. 6/6/17 12:26pm Dean:

Oh, right, 50th. Where'd that decade go?

Where did that decade go? THANKS, OBAMA!

So out of curiosity, I tried googling Sing Along with Itch-got 1 hit for v2, nothing at all for v1!
Avatar Tue. 6/6/17 12:28pm Tony Coulter:

Yeah, I think it's a pretty obscure cassette. Come with a huge (and fun) booklet.

Hey, Nick!

I found a small review for vols 1 & 2, but no definitive date outside of what Tony posted.
Avatar Tue. 6/6/17 12:32pm Tony Coulter:

Don't have Vol. 2, unfortunately.
Avatar    Tue. 6/6/17 12:37pm Nick S.:

I think I hear the bell chime, too.
Avatar    Tue. 6/6/17 12:38pm Nick S.:

I remember Barney Clark and the Jarvis 7. I didn't know he had more fans.
Avatar Tue. 6/6/17 12:53pm Tony Coulter:

This Couch of Sound tape has even less internet presence than the Tinklers thing. Which, of course, means it doesn't really exist.
  Tue. 6/6/17 12:54pm Dean:

...until now, having acquired an internet presence.
Avatar    Tue. 6/6/17 12:55pm Cheyenne:

I love it when things don't exist and they sound this good
Avatar Tue. 6/6/17 12:55pm Tony Coulter:

Yes, we are conspiring to give it existence.
Avatar Tue. 6/6/17 12:55pm Tony Coulter:

Cheyenne! Howdy!
  Tue. 6/6/17 12:56pm Dean:

If you think about it, it can't NOT have existed.
Avatar Tue. 6/6/17 12:59pm Tony Coulter:

Yes, in a way, it has existed since the beginning of the universe.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/6/17 12:59pm northguineahills:

I found that Amy Denio (vocalist of Couch of Sound) has her own Bandcamp page and has this album there. amydenio.bandcamp.com...

Also, it can be found on LastFM.
Avatar    Tue. 6/6/17 1:00pm Nick S.:

Really enjoying this.
Avatar Tue. 6/6/17 1:00pm Tony Coulter:

Aha -- thanks, NGH!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/6/17 1:00pm northguineahills:

(it's listed as released Dec 1, 1988, for you documentarians out there)
Avatar    Tue. 6/6/17 1:01pm Cheyenne:

Hi Tony! Glad I tuned in for this Tape Hiss!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/6/17 1:02pm Guido from Cologne:

Amy Denio + soundgarden's matt cameron.
Amy just recovered from cancer treatment if I got it right.

Hi Tony & everyone!
Avatar Tue. 6/6/17 1:02pm Tony Coulter:

@ NGH: Sez © 1989, tho, so I'm going with that, being legally minded.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/6/17 1:02pm Webhamster Henry:

I only have her collaboration with Die Knödel Non Lo So, Polo.
Avatar Tue. 6/6/17 1:03pm Tony Coulter:

Hey, Guido!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/6/17 1:04pm Guido from Cologne:

Amy's tape-labe/publishing company is named "Spoot" not "Spoof".
www.amydenio.com...
Avatar Tue. 6/6/17 1:05pm Tony Coulter:

@ Guido: Oy! Silly me. Thanks!! It's handwritten on this cassette -- and looks like "Spoof" -- will fix.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/6/17 1:12pm Guido from Cologne:

More trivia from Seatke scene:
Amy and Mark Arm (of Mudhoney) were colleagues at Muzak company.
Avatar Tue. 6/6/17 1:18pm Tony Coulter:

Alterna-Muzak.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/6/17 1:20pm Guido from Cologne:

"Still live" is from her solo tape "never too old ...".
One of the most brilliant cassette only releases ever! ... and Amy at her very best multi-tracking.
www.discogs.com...
Also the CD-re-master is worthwhile (though lack of artwork).
perfect sound.
Avatar Tue. 6/6/17 1:23pm Tony Coulter:

Don't have that tape, but I did just get "No Bones," which I will likely play on a future "Tape Hiss."
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/6/17 1:25pm Guido from Cologne:

"never too old" was on Sound Of Pig label from NY.
Guess WFMU must have it.
At the time i was about to compare it with "Trout Mask" ... it is special and brilliant from the beginning to the end.
Avatar Tue. 6/6/17 1:26pm Tony Coulter:

I should definitely seek it out. Thanks for the recommendation!
Avatar Tue. 6/6/17 1:27pm Tony Coulter:

Sound of Pig's Al Margolis is a good friend of mine -- so I shouldn't have to seek too hard.
Avatar Tue. 6/6/17 1:28pm geezerette:

High, Tony & Tapirs!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/6/17 1:28pm Guido from Cologne:

definetely.
guess he must have the re-master ... which is surprisingly great sounding.
attentively done.

Hello all of you
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/6/17 1:35pm Guido from Cologne:

"Salvatore" is another "never too old" evergreen.
Avatar Tue. 6/6/17 1:37pm Tony Coulter:

Hiya, Nudetan! Don't have anything by the (EC) Nudes. Do have releases from some of her other outfits, tho, like Pale Nudes, Entropics, Tone Dogs, & the Billy Tipton Memorial Saxophone Quartet. She's pretty damn prolific.
Avatar Tue. 6/6/17 1:37pm Tony Coulter:

Greetings, Psychspaniolos!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/6/17 1:38pm Guido from Cologne:

I had her performing solo here in Cologne (bass, sax´, voice).
She left the audience absolutely flabbergasted.
Avatar Tue. 6/6/17 1:42pm Tony Coulter:

The tracklist for this Triptic of a Pastel Fern is REALLY hard to make out. I'll do my best.
Avatar Tue. 6/6/17 1:44pm Tony Coulter:

It's written in a very stylized font, and as one unbroken block of text. Damn you, Ferns!
Avatar Tue. 6/6/17 1:48pm Tony Coulter:

Jumped the gun a bit there. Now all is right with the world.
  Tue. 6/6/17 1:53pm Dean:

Word separation in printed texts is a relatively recent--I stress "relatively"--development. See Saenger's Space Between Words.
Avatar Tue. 6/6/17 1:56pm Tony Coulter:

It also has really arbitrary line breaks. It's a nightmare, I tell ya!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/6/17 1:59pm Guido from Cologne:

So you possibly present the very first decent track listing after 25 years!
respect!
Avatar Tue. 6/6/17 2:04pm geezerette:

A review of Space Between Words,interesting!
  Tue. 6/6/17 2:06pm Dean:

I have the book at home. Bought it around the time it was published. Have yet to read it in full! (Too many spaces between the words?)
Avatar Tue. 6/6/17 2:08pm geezerette:

Haha! :D
Avatar Tue. 6/6/17 2:10pm geezerette:

I have a copy of Darwin's Origin of the Species,needless to say...
  Tue. 6/6/17 2:12pm Dean:

Hoping one day to read that, too.

Stupid work meetings made me miss the whole goddamned thing. Just this last 20 minutes is all I get to... Oh bloody hell. Someone wants to talk to me now...
Avatar    Tue. 6/6/17 2:40pm Rich in Washington:

stupid. I'd really looked forward to this show. I need to tell people I have a cold or some contagious disease and see if I can't phone meetings in from my office - ala The Boy in the Plastic Bubble.
Avatar Tue. 6/6/17 2:40pm Tony Coulter:

Quit your job, Rich! You can tell 'em I said it was OK.
  Tue. 6/6/17 2:42pm Dean:

Another way to view this is that Tape Hiss is a drag on GDP.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/6/17 2:42pm doctorjazz:

Yeah, I'm quitting with you, Rich! Bills? Rent? Food? FMU? Easy choice!
Avatar Tue. 6/6/17 2:43pm Tony Coulter:

You can all live in my basement. If nothing else, there are lots of spiders to eat.
Avatar    Tue. 6/6/17 2:44pm Rich in Washington:

I need to learn how to photosynthesis sustenance. It's getting more complicated as I age. I can't eat the garbage I did when I was in my 20s.
Spiders, you say? Mmmm!

Eww. Savile was the snake in THAT video.
Avatar Tue. 6/6/17 2:53pm Tony Coulter:

Forgot to mention: If you do move into my basement, you'll have to share it with Jimmy Savile. He's already down there, in a box. He wakes up occasionally, to fondle.
