Flash Strap's avatar View Flash Strap's profile Options

This is where all of culture and all of time are collapsed into one seductive portal and viewed through the panoramic lens of the exotic. Come and embark on an armchair-travel virtual-voyage to the heart of timeless darkness and beyond; embrace the numinous monolith of the exotic immensity. Let us find that place where hybridization meets its destiny as pure fantasy. Let us become observers observing those others who are ourselves. You wear your mask and I'll wear mine.

I have many Treasure Isle rekkids, I got in Bed-Stuy's Kulture Lion, sadly now deceased. Unfortunately, now deceased. Most Treasure Isle rekkids had strips of vinyl coming off and the label way off center (into the groove)

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/28/19 8:43pm coelacanth∅:

yes people come to wfmu for music they've never heard, but it's not an indulgence in my opinion; it's natural to play a song more than once if you like it.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/28/19 8:50pm coelacanth∅:

well that's another thing...if a year or more passes between plays one would likely forget about it until they hear it again, and if it's good then it's a welcome, faint familiarity.

no *actual* sax, i should say

Well, they're distant. Pretty sure I bought this for the Eno, kept it for the Cage.

dang, this Steele is so good
Avatar Thu. 2/28/19 9:27pm Flash Strap:

the cage stuff is great, I got it for the Wyatt, but the winner is the Steele, for me

this one slipped past me at the time, when i was buying everything with Brian Eno's name on it. (and since then as well, until now)

I love listening to Wyatt sing.
Avatar Thu. 2/28/19 9:32pm northguineahills:

Ok, never heard Wyatt/Eno do Cage either....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/28/19 9:33pm coelacanth∅:

...and regarding Robert Wyatt, and also the earlier subject, i've been obsessed (not for the first time in my Life) with Wyatt's version (and chic's as well) of at last i am free.

I listen to his song Worship on repeat like... all the time
Avatar Thu. 2/28/19 9:37pm Flash Strap:

i didn't have this track planned but i ended up with a little extra time and i thought it might fit... Eno, sax, bloops and bleeps, echo... feeling good about the move

Out of a commitment to dicktegrity, I have to note that I think Eno is overrated. I rarely get the sense he gives much of a damn about what he's doing.
Avatar Thu. 2/28/19 9:38pm Flash Strap:

@quinn: excellent. i've been on another in an endless series of obsessive periods with Rock Bottom myself

Shleep is due for another visit, i'm realizing
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 2/28/19 9:39pm Uncle Michael:

wish I could have seen Roxy with Eno
Avatar Thu. 2/28/19 9:40pm Flash Strap:

i'll agree with you that he's overrated by a certain (inevitable) degree and leave it at that
Avatar Thu. 2/28/19 9:41pm Flash Strap:

@UM have you ever watched those TV appearances they did, I think on German TV, from this period? love those, Eno is so bizarre
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/28/19 9:41pm coelacanth∅:

i've not heard more Wyatt albums that those i've heard; but rock bottom is great! little red riding hood hit the road made a prime showing in a recent sound collage.

Just arrived and Bogus Man! Whaaaa? Mising the earlier part of the show is...bogus!
Saw Roxy without Eno, '76.

ah good. i figured. so great
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/28/19 9:43pm coelacanth∅:

i don't think every person on earth knows the name Brian Eno, therefore i think he's not overrated.

Avatar 🎃 Thu. 2/28/19 9:44pm quinn:

Every crossword player knows his name
Avatar Thu. 2/28/19 9:44pm Flash Strap:

his participation on Low is both under- and overrated, often at the same time by the same people

didn't see 'em till '79

I sat next to a professional(?) crossworder at a recent event, from Iowa. He urged me to get the NYT crossword app
Avatar Thu. 2/28/19 9:45pm still b/p:

When I bring him up to recommend his essay on the value of informal singing, I'm surprised how many don't know him, either form Roxy or solo ro other projects or all the producing of major acts recordings. Sometimes they think they've heard the name...kinda.

good money in crosswording?

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/28/19 9:47pm coelacanth∅:

i just don't think he gets credit beyond what he deserves credit for. if one doesn't like his music, fine. some people don't like the beatles or Neil Young or John Coltrane....but his contribution to music and to countless individual artists is immeasurable.

The first time I saw dj Spooky, he played the Sun Ra/John Cage LP. Thankfully, since then, it's been played at WFMU and I found it online.

I have found this show engaging, rhythmic, spacey, and worthy of fine ratings.

I don't think I've rated Eno one way or "nother -generally hold him in high esteem
