"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.)

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/3/19 9:59am steveo:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/3/19 9:59am Ken From Hyde Park:

@sphere - What about any jazz yarnells?

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/3/19 10:04am sphere:

@KenfHP - im sorry, what's a jazz yarnell? i did a search and only found ice cream from Arkansas.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/3/19 10:05am steveo:

from the bandcamp: 'an extended jam that pushes the guitar into the background in favor of an irresistible kind of Germanic disco funk, or what Forsyth calls his “nihilistic disco accountant” vibe'

i won't spoil what else it says (i thought it was ending there but it was just john fading for the sation id :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/3/19 10:05am Booz:

@Ken HA ha ha s & y. BTW, how was Andrew Bernstein??

Conversion? Who converted you, @JA, and what did they convert you to? Zoroastrianism? Winged-Monkeyism? Torontonian Double-Sliced Pizzaism?

Also: Rest in peace DJ FXO.

@ Phillippe when i was in high school, i always found the best books in the miscellaneous section (0 - 100 Dewey Decimal). i found books on the sociology of zombies in Haiti and vampires in Eastern Europe.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/3/19 11:19am sphere:

well, "zombies" and "vampires" as social concepts, but you get the point.
