First Trouble, then Tamar on the Drummer Stream, then Donna, then Sonika? This is a great Thursday for rare sounds!

well, this is a Joyous occasion ...or, it's leading to one...

this is such a long way from "natural information", hard to believe it's the same guy

Now That's What I Call Music!

"continuum" is a direct descendant of some work by Somei Satoh. i wish Satoh would get more attention.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 8/1/19 3:25pm tim from champaign:

@YETI BOB - you might be aware, but Josh Abrams started out in the Roots. I love when musicians get weirder/more out with time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 8/1/19 3:26pm tim from champaign:

Great set, Donna! It's always a real pleasure catching your shows.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 8/1/19 3:27pm Webhamster Henry:

Ahh - Bertoia-esque!
Avatar Thu. 8/1/19 3:30pm Franco Twinkie:

Donna, you can't just say you had a crazy night without giving us folks who go to bed early some vicarious thrills....Now spill it!
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 8/1/19 3:31pm YETI BOB:

@tim: yes and yes
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 8/1/19 3:32pm tim from champaign:

Donna, play something off of Spacemen 3's Recurring. Guaranteed hangover cure.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/1/19 3:35pm coelacanth∅:

once upon a time i was assistant manager at a store and if i came in feeling like shit the manager would be very sweet to me (which must've been a challenge for her) but if she found out it was self-induced (hangover) she'd turn mean as hell and have me busier than usual for the rest of the day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 8/1/19 3:55pm tim from champaign:

This Maciunas is pretty great!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 8/1/19 3:56pm steveo:

Peter Green? More like Pretty Good
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/1/19 4:33pm coelacanth∅:

i sure hope Peter found something he was looking for, so our loss wasn't for nothing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 8/1/19 4:34pm tim from champaign:

Very cool. I was just thinking "Robert Wyatt sure sound like Stevie Wonder here". Then I checked the playlist. haha
Avatar Thu. 8/1/19 4:36pm Franco Twinkie:

I think Peter never got over his encounter with the green manalishi.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/1/19 4:42pm coelacanth∅:

yeah i think that was about the end of it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 8/1/19 4:42pm Michael 98145:

My little Ko No Noes!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/1/19 4:52pm coelacanth∅:

i play that Stevie song on the jukebox when certain people are present in the bar
Avatar Thu. 8/1/19 4:54pm Franco Twinkie:

Coel, do you glare at them while it is playing, just to make sure they get your drift?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 8/1/19 4:54pm Michael 98145:

{ these summer fill-ins have been quite fun }
  Thu. 8/1/19 4:55pm brainiac:

Donna, you are the most fearless exotic name pronouncer I have ever heard behind a mic. Good on ya, mate.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/1/19 4:59pm coelacanth∅:

Franco, no! but the one that i usually play it for is always watching when i go up to the jukebox because he generally can't stand good music and thinks the shallow shitty gangsta rap he plays is far superior. i know he's listening.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 8/1/19 5:04pm fred:

I like this Barbara Proksch track
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 8/1/19 5:07pm Michael 98145:

crappy rap does seem to be some folks' constant soundtrack, doesn't it ??
Avatar Thu. 8/1/19 5:10pm Franco Twinkie:

Yeah, If you don't want to get in a fist fight, you have to think of other ways to check these motherfuckers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/1/19 5:14pm coelacanth∅:

Michael, i find it bizarre! a million lines of lyrics that don't say much of anything, strung together by elementary school rhyming; and these people chant every lyric like it's some profound mantra. song after song. they must commit a lot of time to being poseurs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 8/1/19 5:14pm tim from champaign:

I'd go to the piano bar if it sounded like this.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/1/19 5:17pm coelacanth∅:

Franco i'm friendly with this person. it's a tense friendly though! some of his minions wont be friendly to me.
he actually got fired from a job as a waiter that he was, from what i could tell, exceptionally good at, because of his badass, wiseass attitude.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 8/1/19 5:17pm Michael 98145:

@coel, maybe they find saying "shit" over and over to be somehow cathartic ..
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/1/19 5:20pm coelacanth∅:

haha, maybe.
i play some "old school" rap sometimes when i'm there and at least the one guy likes that too. but he usually chooses the recycled, i'm-so-badass poseur crap when he feeds the jukebox.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/1/19 5:20pm common:

Donna. All. Happy Thursday. This is nice!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/1/19 5:21pm coelacanth∅:

(when i say oldschool i mean like late 80s-late 90s)

hey common!
Avatar Thu. 8/1/19 5:23pm Franco Twinkie:

That's the problem with bars. Some people treat them like it's their living room.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/1/19 5:27pm coelacanth∅:

yes, the living room that mommy will clean up...but that's another thing!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/1/19 5:32pm coelacanth∅:

...to be fair, some folks might think it's me being selfish to play what i play. they're not aware that i take into account who's in the bar (especially behind the bar), and the general vibe when i choose music on the jukebox. i also rarely put tons of money in at once, even though doing that gives me extra selections, because i'm giving others a chance to get in there too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 8/1/19 5:33pm Carmichael:

@coel, you pay the money, you play the song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 8/1/19 5:36pm Rich in Washington:

This is incredible!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/1/19 5:37pm coelacanth∅:

Carm i know. people have said that to me! but it's not like i'm playing anything i don't want to hear...i just may not play 6 punk songs if the vibe leans toward Curtis Mayfield; or 6 Curtis Mayfiel songs if the vibe leans toward the grateful dead.
i can work within the realm of the vibe, usually...unless i decidedly want to counter the vibe!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 8/1/19 5:39pm Carmichael:

At my local boozer, I try to give off the "f@ck off" look, with pretty good success. I actually said it once to a guy, too, so I got that going for me.
Avatar Thu. 8/1/19 5:45pm colbua:

this Chalcha music is interesting stuff
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/1/19 5:46pm coelacanth∅:

haha yeah.
...i've said more than once "you're really annoying why are you talking to me?" and one guy, this tall college student came up to me as i stood at the jukebox and at first was praising my selections, which may have been classic bluesrock or r&b, and then said how 'bout some zeppelin... i said nope. he said oh come on, stairway to heaven? and i said if i were going to play led zeppelin that's about the last song i'd play and he accused me of saying that just to be contrary and cool because it's not possible for someone to dislike that song.
i told him he's on very thin ice and he doesn't have much time to get away from me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/1/19 5:47pm coelacanth∅:

christ that's a long post. sorry.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/1/19 5:47pm common:

Yep
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 8/1/19 5:56pm Carmichael:

Ha ha. I'm much more direct and succinct. And pretty much friendless, he he ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 8/1/19 5:57pm listener james from westwood:

Thanks, Donna!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 8/1/19 5:57pm chresti:

Tell it coel! Some customers are fuckers!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 8/1/19 5:59pm tim from champaign:

Thanks so much Donna! Fabio can keep playing with his guns and you can come back again!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 8/1/19 5:59pm Rich in Washington:

Great show! Been busy working away but unable to comment 'til now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 8/1/19 5:59pm chresti:

Thanks Donna! Joyful noises!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/1/19 5:59pm coelacanth∅:

well actually i think he didn't drift away until after i said "get the fuck away from me"! but the truth is i would never have gotten physical about it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/1/19 5:59pm coelacanth∅:

Thanks Donna don't be a stranger!
