Found an auction for 2000lbs of used records (not counted weighed), buy it now price was just $100. The only problem is I'd have to rent a U-Haul and drive 5 hours to collect it and then I'd have to figure out where to store it while I sorted through a literal ton of records.

what a record.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/4/19 10:35am The Oscar:

I knew it was going to be "7 and 7 Is," but I was really hoping it would be "The Red Telephone." I think Alice could actually pull that off pretty well.

Even though I loathed them when they came out, I've sort of warmed to Alice's Alice goes New Wave records now.

I have really become fond of his Clones (We're All). Someone really should cover it.

Alice didn't the coda? That's the best part! Ah well, it's his birthday, so he can do whatever he wants.

Oh. I'm thinking of his album Flush the Fashion, which came out a year earlier. Another of his New Wave-ish albums...

@Pete: He liked those bip-bops too much. @duke: How were they live? I read that James Brown liked them so much he hopped on stage at the Apollo to join them for 45 minutes!

The whole Assembled Multitude LP is actually very interesting. I think this track was a top #10 single!
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 2/4/19 10:45am Joe McG:

@Mike: I know, it was a bigger hit than the original! @joe: Great idea!
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 2/4/19 10:45am duke:

@Joe. They put on a great live show. At the time the York/Harrisburg PA area was filled with soul bands. The Mag Men were the only ones who made it semi-big.

Today's show hits four or five different kinds of sweet spots, then starts the series over again. Spit-take (Newley, Alice Cooper), best-songs-ever (Sundays, Lords of the New Church), fresh-baked (Gunn, Tyler, Kero Kero), and AAAHHH (Lai, Cher).
  Mon. 2/4/19 10:50am John in Bklyn:

If it was now, Cher could have mobilized an army on social media to call out the racists and bigots!!

Graham's vocals remind me a bit of Nick Saloman at times -- which is a complement because I like the Bevis Frond.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 2/4/19 11:25am Joe McG:

I hear that, paul! I hear some Costello in there, too, I think. Maybe even a little Kevin Ayers, if he were an indie rocker!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Mon. 2/4/19 11:26am maestroso:

I hear a little bit of Richard Thompson too.

Avatar Mon. 2/4/19 11:39am Wild Neil||Peace All:

@steveo-one of the kids in The Wire (McNulty's kids) was listeing to something really heavy. McNulty walks in (he's got them for visitation that weekend) and he says"What's that?" and they go "Dead Meadow". I was kinda impressed. That was as good a TV moment as The Dickies on CPO Sharkey back in the 70's.
  Mon. 2/4/19 11:40am Brendan:

Hearing some Joe Jackson chord changes in the mix too

@Brendan: Graham has a very nice mix of influences that he's assimilated so beautifully.

Wow, I'm really enjoying Graham Brice's music, singing and songwriting both.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/4/19 11:42am Mike Sin:

@Brendan -- I was about to say the same thing! That singing along with the descending changes reminded of that '80-era Joe Jackson. @Joe McG -- Man, this "Ask Me To" is a helleuva track to be recorded for your show! It's fabulous!
