"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

i'm having the weirdest dream right now
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/12/18 11:33am steveo:

thinking of getting a distortion pedal for my trombone
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/12/18 11:34am coelacanth∅:

the beauty of getting a distortion pedal for your trombone is that you can use it for other things too, if you need to
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/12/18 11:37am steveo:

true
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/12/18 11:37am coelacanth∅:

that doesn't actually end like that does it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/12/18 11:38am coelacanth∅:

oh, okay.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/12/18 11:48am coelacanth∅:

steveo i was just being goofy @1134 but i do really think there's immense untapped possibility in the effects on horns department. Jon Hassel, of course, and Miles...George Harrison had the amps overdriven for the saxophones on savoy truffle. i can't think of a lot of examples.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/12/18 11:52am steveo:

I've learned about some really great stuff on WFMU. Hilary Jeffery's Tromboscillator first comes to mind.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/12/18 11:55am steveo:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/12/18 11:56am steveo:

i'll have to look into hassel thanks
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/12/18 11:56am coelacanth∅:

i have to check that out. 'bone's great, i don't hear enough of it
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/12/18 11:57am George of Troy:

Steveo & Coel: Check out Ben Neill for processed, electro-acoustic trumpet work, if you haven't already.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/12/18 11:59am coelacanth∅:

Hassel plays trumpet though. he probably got the idea, or at least the detail on how to proceed, from Eno. their album together is my favorite Jon Hassel album. i think they had a falling out or something so he doesn't seem to acknowledge it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/12/18 11:59am steveo:

i played trumpet when I was younger, but i prefer the lower sounds and also the direct manipulation of the tube length of the trombone (also something new to learn and experiment with) . (Ben Neill, thanks George).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/12/18 11:59am coelacanth∅:

Thanks George!

Thanks John!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/12/18 12:00pm coelacanth∅:

(big fan. trombone's the only horn, besides the zurna, that i've used in my shithole music.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/12/18 12:01pm steveo:

yes sorry to hijack the board john, your show has been inspiring as usual oh it's noon eh? thanks very much, JA
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/12/18 12:01pm steveo:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/12/18 12:03pm coelacanth∅:
