hello, the music is fine, the page color (family of aquamarine?), and the typeface are all swell.

This Bob Bell has been bending my mind quite a bite. Did Greg Ginn somehow have this private press LP on high rotation at the SST offices?
  Tue. 8/13/19 1:04pm Martha:

Yes, really more interesting than you first think - bits of free jazz floating around there -

Riding the bummer vibes!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/13/19 1:12pm fred:

I'm enjoying this Haikai No Ku track
  Tue. 8/13/19 1:14pm Martha:

Haikai No Ku can be a bummer - most of their tracks are a bit more, uh, uplifting???
Avatar Tue. 8/13/19 1:17pm Hubig Pie:

The Black Angels singer has a little bit of a Jim Morrison sound in his voice

What is the name of this show?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/13/19 1:21pm tim from champaign:

@Martha - bummer vibes = good listening to my ears. Flipper, Drunks With Guns, et al. I dug it.
  Tue. 8/13/19 1:21pm Chuck Friendly:

I figured it out! Thanks
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/13/19 1:23pm Ken From Hyde Park:

My low-budget research reveals that Kvelertak is a Norwegian band whose name translates to "stranglehold" or "chokehold." And "Ordsmedar av Rang" equates to "Wordsmith of Rank."
  Tue. 8/13/19 1:24pm Martha:

Kverlertak = ominous amount of self-indulgence on my part
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/13/19 1:26pm fred:

I got enough uplifting things today: first, a notification from the post office that swagmas should fall on Friday. Second, a box of CDs from Houston, with the post office slip signed by one Sterling Smith
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/13/19 1:27pm tim from champaign:

Does Nugent sing "Got you in a kvelertak, baby" when he plays Norway?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/13/19 1:28pm tim from champaign:

Wow, Fred. Pretty killer mail today, I'd say.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/13/19 1:28pm sphere:

@ fred: so Corwood Industries is still alive and kicking! good news that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/13/19 1:29pm tim from champaign:

What Jandeks did you get, fred? I haven't dipped into those waters in a little while.
Avatar Tue. 8/13/19 1:29pm coelacanth∅:

Martha it's great to hear you again!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/13/19 1:32pm sphere:

first time listener, i think. Martha, i definitely dig it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/13/19 1:33pm fred:

@tim: Old stuff, from Six And Six to Twelfth Apostle. Yep, I figured I might as well go for the 50% discount on 20
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/13/19 1:34pm tim from champaign:

Very cool, fred! I've always wanted to do that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/13/19 1:35pm tim from champaign:

I wear progressive lenses too. I usually tell people that I have transgressive lenses.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/13/19 1:37pm fred:

@sphere: I saw Jandek earlier this year, and not only did was the show great (unlike the first time I saw him, which sucked) I later saw him dancing during another band's set, in the back of the room. I love it when people show up for other acts instead of staying backstage
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/13/19 1:40pm tim from champaign:

The main dude in the Long Ryders has a really good chapter in John Doe's new book.
  Tue. 8/13/19 1:44pm Martha:

Thanks Tim - good to know -
Avatar Tue. 8/13/19 1:45pm herb.nyc:

Just tuned in- wnyc segment on dance clubs that had prostitution, 1840-1917, just ended (yeah baby!). / Never saw the Long Ryders. I should undo that.

  Tue. 8/13/19 2:04pm matty from brooklyn:

Martha I am loving your show!
Normally only get out of work around 3, really glad I'm getting to listen in
  Tue. 8/13/19 2:04pm listener monica:

great show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/13/19 2:06pm sphere:

Evidently, that Membranes song is from the band of the same name led by John Robb. Who knows who is in there now. <shrug>
  Tue. 8/13/19 2:08pm Martha:

@sphere - interesting, thanks for info - I think I have some ancient 12" EP from them which doesn't seem v. similar but then I haven't listened to it in at least 20 years...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/13/19 2:10pm sphere:

@ Martha - i was interested because i am a huge fan of their 80s tune "Wounded Bull in Victorian England."
  Tue. 8/13/19 2:10pm Martha:

And thanks all for the good words - hope you enjoy this long track - not trying to be terribly self-indulgent but I hate cutting things off...tho' it will be nec. here - bad timing on my part -
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/13/19 2:11pm fred:

This Abysmal Growls of Despair elicits nothing of the sort for me: clicky-star!
Rough translation of the title: Feeling the weight of mountains and finding peace in darkness
  Tue. 8/13/19 2:14pm Martha:

@Fred: thanks for the translation; I'll add it to the comments section (which I have never used before, actually).
Avatar Tue. 8/13/19 2:16pm coelacanth∅:

the obvious solution here is to get your 12-3am program back, so you have time to play everything you want...and when the fcc isn't so strict about the station id being right on time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/13/19 2:19pm diciassette:

rad show. i listened mostly while dreaming I was getting out of bed (in the oddest places)
  Tue. 8/13/19 2:19pm Marc15:

Is there a transmitter problem?
  Tue. 8/13/19 2:20pm Martha:

@Marc15: why do you ask?
  Tue. 8/13/19 2:21pm Marc15:

All I am hearing is static?
  Tue. 8/13/19 2:21pm Martha:

Was it distorting - that may have been my fault - I've adjusted the levels - this is mastered (unsurprisingly) v. hot
  Tue. 8/13/19 2:22pm Martha:

@coelacanth: I would love to but right now my schedule is really erratic and I can't commit to being here the % of time that is required
  Tue. 8/13/19 2:23pm Martha:

@sphere: Maybe I have the Membranes mixed up with another band. The one I was obsessed with from that period was The Creepers -
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/13/19 2:25pm sphere:

@ Martha: Who knows? The Membranes sound a lot different to me too.
  Tue. 8/13/19 2:25pm Marc15:

I hear the song on 91.1 but on the App is static
  Tue. 8/13/19 2:25pm Martha:

@Marc15:
a) is it better?
b) how are you listening?
Avatar Tue. 8/13/19 2:26pm coelacanth∅:

well hopefully some day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/13/19 2:27pm sphere:

The app is working fine for me. maybe Marc is mistaking the tune for static.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/13/19 2:27pm chris:

i, for one, say, indulge thyself, Martha. this is great.
Avatar Tue. 8/13/19 2:28pm coelacanth∅:

maybe try lowering the bass on the "app"? i had to lower the bass AND the overall level because my room was rumbling too much!
Avatar Tue. 8/13/19 2:29pm coelacanth∅:

(and now i can hear the subtleties of the piece that i didn't quite get before)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/13/19 2:31pm blee:

Hey, This ain't Brittney Spears!?!?!?
Avatar Tue. 8/13/19 2:32pm coelacanth∅:

this is what Brittney Spears is trying for but she doesn't quite hit the mark.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/13/19 2:36pm blee:

totally. If only she shaved her head going against the grain.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/13/19 2:38pm tim from champaign:

Now this is music for mind control.

Now this is the music for mind control.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/13/19 2:40pm fred:

I think the title pretty much fits the track. Seems they're from France, I hope I'll get the chance to see them someday
Avatar Tue. 8/13/19 2:42pm coelacanth∅:

remember when itunes canada accidentally (?) released 8 seconds of white noise as the latest Taylor Swift single?
and some silly people, like myself, who knew nothing about Taylor Swift entertained the idea that she might embrace it and gravitate toward "noise" in her art...
  Tue. 8/13/19 2:43pm Martha:

I wish I was listening to this in some type of surround sound while floating atop a pool of very salty water...too bad quadraphonic is dead.

mmm yes at the Liquidrom ~~~

  Tue. 8/13/19 2:47pm coyoteeeeee:

At work, but not really.
  Tue. 8/13/19 2:52pm Marc15:

It is better. I was driving listening to 91.1. I am home now and the App is better too
  Tue. 8/13/19 2:53pm Marc15:
