Heya, TDK60! The weather here is *finally* pleasant. The smoke from multiple forest fires that's been choking us has finally cleared up.

A lot of my recent shows have been pretty heavily weighted towards '80s post-punk & experimental stuff. Today's show will head off in a different direction, just for a change of pace.

Just back from 1st trip to England -where the weather is cooler thankfully.

Hello! I'm not sure I understood that political rekkid at the top. Was that about RFK looking for VPs? If so, that's kind of got a sad tinge now in hindsight.
Avatar Tue. 8/28/18 12:19pm Tony Coulter:

Hey, Ike! Nope, the search was for a vocalist for their cover of 96 Tears -- don't think there was a hidden metaphor there. 'Course, maybe I missed it.

What's an h between friends. Cockneys lose their h's all the time.
  Tue. 8/28/18 12:51pm Dean:

I'm reminded of a joke(?) told by one of the members of Dawn (as in Tony Orlando &). Her name was Telma. Either TO himself or a host of TV show on which the group was appearing asked why her name wasn't the more ordinary Thelma. The reply was something along the lines of, "My mom always told me to get the H out of here." It was followed by a laugh track.
Avatar Tue. 8/28/18 12:53pm Tony Coulter:

Ha, ha, ha! Or should I say, a, a, a!

'eya, Dean!
  Tue. 8/28/18 12:57pm Dean:

Ever notice that the titles of their hits "Tie a Yellow Ribbon 'round the Old Oak Tree" and "Knock Tree Times" don't include an H, hmmm? Very Georges Perec!

Gotta run, thanks Tony; back soon I hope..
Avatar Tue. 8/28/18 12:58pm Tony Coulter:

@ Dean: Except dropping your h's is much easier than dropping your e's.

Have you heard o Christian Bok? His book Eunoia uses only one vowel in each of its chapters, and it's better than it sounds
Avatar Tue. 8/28/18 1:07pm Tony Coulter:

I haven't, no. Sounds intriguing.
Avatar Tue. 8/28/18 1:07pm Tony Coulter:

I take it you've decided to do without the letter f.
Avatar Tue. 8/28/18 1:08pm Tony Coulter:

This Opium Vala track is, believe it or not, a cover of a Simon & Garfunkel tune.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/28/18 1:09pm Webhamster Henry:

Indeed - the guitar riff is a classic!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/28/18 1:09pm fred:

Not intentionally, but it only leads boring things
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/28/18 1:10pm Rich in Washington:

Christian Bok was just in town a couple of months ago and I missed it.
Avatar Tue. 8/28/18 1:10pm Tony Coulter:

Webhamster! Greetings!
  Tue. 8/28/18 1:13pm Dean:

"only one vowel in each of its chapters"

I assume this means there are multiple occurrences in each chapter of the respective vowel? Not just a single vowel in a sea of consonants?
  Tue. 8/28/18 1:16pm Dean:

Label BFD...Berkeley Fire Dep't?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/28/18 1:16pm fred:

@Dean: Yeah, endless uses of each vowel. It's not in German. Apparently, his real name was Christian Book, but he had it legally changed because of obvious search engine issues
  Tue. 8/28/18 1:19pm Dean:

"obvious search engine issues"

Now that's putting the cart before the horse!
Avatar Tue. 8/28/18 1:20pm βrian:

"To take arms against a sea of consonants." Sounds Eastern European to me.
Avatar Tue. 8/28/18 1:21pm northguineahills:

Ack, I need to vote today, and polls close at 7 here, unlike 9 in NYC.

Greetings, βrian & NGH!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/28/18 1:21pm Rich in Washington:

For some reason, I always confuse Christian Bök with Jaap Blonk
Avatar Tue. 8/28/18 1:27pm βrian:

Get 'em, Gillum!
  Tue. 8/28/18 1:27pm Dean:

My daughter's first day of second grade was yesterday. I urged her always to speak with her tongue stuck out. Since it was her first day, the teacher wouldn't know the difference. But now I think it would have been better to urge her to talk like Jaap Blonk.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/28/18 1:29pm fred:

@Rich: I haven't seen Jaap Blonk in years. That's not right
Avatar Tue. 8/28/18 1:30pm Tony Coulter:

Has anybody seen "20th Century Oz," the movie the song on now is from? If so, is it worth tracking down?
  Tue. 8/28/18 1:30pm Dean:

Missed him when he was in the area earlier this year. Dammit.
Avatar Tue. 8/28/18 1:31pm Tony Coulter:

Oddly, I found a Jaap Blonk tape at a Portland yard sale last year. He has performed in Portland a few times, so....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/28/18 1:36pm Rich in Washington:

I just looked up that Christian Bök Portland appearance and it was over a year ago. I remember not going like it was yesterday.
I have become such a hermit.
Avatar Tue. 8/28/18 1:37pm Tony Coulter:

I've been really busy myself, not going to all sorts of shows.
Avatar Tue. 8/28/18 1:38pm northguineahills:

Jaap, I Blonked it again, d'oh!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/28/18 1:38pm Rich in Washington:

Speaking of Australian movies, I really want to see the Oz faux doc Wrong Side of the Road again. I remember it playing on Night Flight in the mid 80s.
  Tue. 8/28/18 1:38pm Dean:

Going to hear The Vibrators at a local bar in early September. Lucero in SF in November. Caught Zeke twice this year. That's about it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/28/18 1:40pm Rich in Washington:

The last show I saw, which was a bit of a fluke, as a friend had a spare ticket, was The Melvins last month.
Avatar Tue. 8/28/18 1:41pm Tony Coulter:

I'd like to see the Australian biker film "Stone," based on its great soundtrack.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/28/18 1:41pm Rich in Washington:

I am much less prone to go see shows during the winter months. But also, at my age, going out, having to sit out one or two acts I don't care about in order to see the headliner, who doesn't take the stage until 10pm, is sort of daunting for me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/28/18 1:42pm Rich in Washington:

I too have yet to see Stone. I think it's on one of the streaming channels I subscribe to. I probably should. I've had the soundtrack for years and also love it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/28/18 1:43pm fred:

I've seen one show in the past two months (Follakzoid). That's alarming. I haven't seen 50 gigs this year. Even adding dance shows (I'm a contemporary dance fan) I don't think I'll get to 100 this year. I'm getting old
  Tue. 8/28/18 1:43pm Dean:

I didn't go to the show, but because the venue is practically in my backyard I heard Israel Vibration's recent show loudly and clearly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/28/18 1:43pm Rich in Washington:

Wrong Side of the Road was pretty cool. It followed two Aboriginal rock bands on the road, their run-ins with the police, racist white Aussies, etc.
Avatar Tue. 8/28/18 1:45pm northguineahills:

Does myself playing count, and that was 2 months ago?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/28/18 1:47pm listener james from westwood:

Jesus rock in the house!

Wait, did Micah hog-tie Tony and take over?
Avatar Tue. 8/28/18 1:49pm Tony Coulter:

Discogs lists this album as "Can't Stop Paraisin' the Lord" ... which kinda bugs me. But I'm too lazy to submit a correction.
  Tue. 8/28/18 1:50pm Dean:

This record needs a continuous inner groove.

Is the album cover an areola?

Sadly, no. But it is quite a cover: www.discogs.com...

I mostly just holed up with my records this summer.
Avatar Tue. 8/28/18 2:04pm Tony Coulter:

Haven't been to a concert in a couple of months. Has to be something I *really" want to see, and that doesn't happen that often.
Avatar Tue. 8/28/18 2:06pm Tony Coulter:

Out here in Portland, anyway.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/28/18 2:08pm fred:

@NGH: did you hear about Lea Bertucci's project in a bridge in Cologne (I think). That sounded like an amazing project
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/28/18 2:08pm Rich in Washington:

The goldilocks zone for me to see a show has to be: early, with less than two opening acts; cheap or free; not on a 'school' night. Oh, and preferably in my backyard.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/28/18 2:12pm fred:

@Rich: I'm with you on the "cheap" side. I might shell out $30 for a show, but not every year. (Dance is another story, but even there I rarely go that high)

Jester! I'd totally forgotten about them. I knew these guys, somehow. They're from Whittier. Tom Mitchell, in particular, is very familiar.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/28/18 2:20pm fred:

Battle of five armies? Try Ambush from Ten Sides instead!
  Tue. 8/28/18 2:21pm Dean:

They might have been situated at Whittier College for a while, hence the jacket's reference to "the Penn Street neighborhood."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/28/18 2:21pm Rich in Washington:

I sort of got over my 'guilt' or whatever about not going to shows by admitting to myself that I'm not really a live music person.
And that's OK. That's alright. I'm good enough, and I'm strong enough and - doggone it - people like me!
Avatar Tue. 8/28/18 2:22pm Tony Coulter:

@ Dean: Interesting! This record is pretty hard to find these days, unfortunately.

Oscar Wilde wrote 'Hell is other people' and he didn't even have to sit through two boring opening acts in a crowded nightclub filled with douches. Or did he?

Pretty sure I once owned a copy, as it was released when I was working a record store in town. Alas, no more.
