"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.)

Hi JA! I met Rolnick a few years ago up at RPI.

Rolnick, you evil genius, Friday isn't the same without you.

Web Hen, was your intro to Neil as wonderful as this song?
  Swag For Life Member Fri. 7/13/18 9:17am Listener Robert:

This is the part that gives me the emotional rxn, coming out of the dream into the locomotive.

@Webhamster what was he doing up at RPI? By kid brother is an alumnus, never knew of anything musical going on up there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/13/18 9:26am Rob (Jerzcity):

Apparently (via wiki) he taught at RPI until around 2013

@Diezel there are some interesting thing going on at Empac at RPI
  Swag For Life Member Fri. 7/13/18 9:31am Listener Robert:

My understanding was that RPI specialized in all things electronic, so that mde sense.

This is cool. I thought this was Tim Buckley at first.

Surprised to find out that Alan Arkin was a member of the Tarriers
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/13/18 9:42am Webhamster Henry:

RPI is the home of EMPAC and the C.R.A.I.V.E. Lab ( a 360 degree projection room with about 120 speakers behind the screens). I was visiting as part of my association with Pauline Oliveros, who taught there for many years.
I have a tiny cut on the same CD as Rolnick, Cuneiform Records' "Transforms: The Nerve Events Project"
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/13/18 9:42am Webhamster Henry:

Alan Arkin was also in the great kids' folk music band The Babysitters!

where's the trouble, Robert?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 7/13/18 10:12am karlward:

This reminds me of "Oh Sheit it's X" by Thundercat. In a weird sideways way. A totally wild fretless bass solo would work here. Please send these notes along to Watson.

This Donald Byrd track makes me want to steal an early 70s muscle car and run into a row of metal garbage cans.

So psyched for Full Mantis, and today's mixtape, and all manner of pulses.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 7/13/18 10:29am Polyus:

I sure hope this streams somewhere because I am betting there is less than 2% chance of this screeneing in my town.

Hi John, welcome back. We heard whale songs while you were gone; also i was in Shake Shack by Boro Hall this week and guess what came on the PA? Mad as Hell! So your plan is working. Happy Friday. I'm glad to be listening. (@bob ross I think this is jazz)

That echo effect is the perfect echo effect and no other echo effect will ever feel the same again.

I don’t know what Robert’s “e-mair-jon-cy” was but apparently Honey Smacks cereal is being recalled due to salmonella infections.

All this Milford Graves, fantastic to hear.
  Swag For Life Member Fri. 7/13/18 11:06am Listener Robert:

"E-mair-jon-cy, everybody off street" is how I'll always remember Alan Arkin (referenced upthread) from "The Russians Are Coming". The character wqs always "correcting" the English pronunciation of his underlings when they were correct.

Loving these Milford clips.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/13/18 11:13am Mick:

Everyone has said some version of this already, but this Milford stuff is fabulous and a half - can't wait to see the film
