"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.)

Is that a real listener quote??? I like Joe B a lot but I like you too!!!
"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."
Avatar Fri. 7/20/18 9:39am Diezel Tea:

It doesn't sound like these dudes are into cheap heroin. Sounds more like they're into whippets. Either way, ace material.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/20/18 9:42am Ike:

@Morphe, no, our dirty hippie DJ recently admitted he MADE IT UP. After all these years! Such a betrayal. I feel so used.
  Fri. 7/20/18 9:42am Morphe:

I worked at St Marks Bookshop 82-88.. Stanley Crouch used to browse about and complain about the music we played.. We used to call him Stanley GROUCH. He would complain about the music "THAT"S NOT MUSIC. THAT"S JUST NOISE." I would say, "Thank you Mr Grouch."
thanks for spinning!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/20/18 9:43am John Allen:

Ike, that is incorrect
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/20/18 9:45am Ike:

I listened yesterday. It's a total reflection on you that you make up funny quotes from listeners and I couldn't see where you were going with your fake quotes or what you were going for. This early seventies fake quote didn't get noticed the first time and you talk about fake quotes of like Delaney and Bonnie who had quotes out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you fake-quote this long winded free jazz stuff that really fakes. You faker. And that fake quote without a beat and sounds like someone's being pinched. I like Daniel Blumin a lot.
  Fri. 7/20/18 9:47am Morphe:

John, I just noticed the Klaus Naomi image in your post. I shook his hand once after a show and I was so amazed at the texture of his hand. I said" that is the softest hand I have ever touched - like a cloud..." He gave a sweet smile.... The end..

I’ve waited to get a haircut with Stanley Crouch a few times. He’s a nice guy. No complaints.

In a related note, I walked by the former Max's Kansas City today, and it's now called Fraiche Maxx. It sells juice or something. I should see if they have meringue.

Is this where the stalker creeps up on the teenagers who sneaked into the mall at night?
Avatar    Fri. 7/20/18 10:17am βrian:

If I could, I'd put some speakers to the window and play this music over the mall. Passersby would appreciate that, I think.
