i see where the horns in this song are going

I think I am fighting off a cold that I got from a coworker. I think I am going to kill him (please don't tell the police!)

It's always time for the perculater!

It is definitely time for this.
  Wed. 8/14/19 9:19pm Marie:

Love the spelling--"Cajmere"
  Wed. 8/14/19 9:24pm Marie:

Anybody going to see pete murphy in New york? is he still here? I have to see about that
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/14/19 9:25pm efd:

sadly the rest of his shows have been postponed - he had a heart attack earlier in the week.
  Wed. 8/14/19 9:25pm Shirley:

Marie, please, don't kill your coworker. You know you will regret it, unless you are a psychopath
  Wed. 8/14/19 9:26pm Marie:

@efd--oh wow, I did not know that. I hope he is gonna be okay.
Avatar Wed. 8/14/19 9:26pm RobinSays:

Wishing Peter Murphy a speedy recovery. He is a singular talent. His songs comingle beauty and darkness brilliantly.
  Wed. 8/14/19 9:29pm Marie:

@Shirley--is willfully withholding a heimlich maneuver considered murder?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/14/19 9:30pm Kat in Chicago:

Eating dishes would be pretty punk rock I guess
Avatar Wed. 8/14/19 9:30pm JakeGould:

A lot of co-workers deserve urine in their k-cups.

that intro...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/14/19 9:45pm Kat in Chicago:

That Peter Cook bit was delightful
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/14/19 9:46pm Bootsie:

OH yessssss!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/14/19 9:46pm efd:

what's weird is the CD says it's a promo for this song but he was talking more about the title track than this one I think
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/14/19 9:49pm Kat in Chicago:

I think that was a mistake too. There was even a bit of No. 1 heard at the end.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/14/19 9:49pm efd:

right!
@Bootsie what do you know about this??
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/14/19 9:51pm efd:

there's another track that's called "promo spot for No. 1 In Heaven that comes before the single version of that song but I haven't listened to it yet!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/14/19 9:52pm Kat in Chicago:

Maybe they got them mixed up?
  Wed. 8/14/19 9:52pm scobot:

Any chance you could play The Incredible He Woman/Stereolab?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/14/19 9:52pm Bootsie:

@efd I haven't heard it before!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/14/19 9:54pm efd:

@scobot Mmmmmaybe.... but if I do it wouldn't be for at least an hour, just to manage expectations
  Wed. 8/14/19 9:59pm scobot:

Thank you. Listening from Ft. Lauderdale.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/14/19 9:59pm Bootsie:

Well, guess I need to buy that reissue now!

Avatar Wed. 8/14/19 10:31pm Hoboken Jack:

I woke up just in time for the interview! Can we pretend I'm one of those international listeners where it would be normal to be waking up now?

Does anyone else hear an echo of "Roundabout" by Yes in the guitar intro and at the break?
  Wed. 8/14/19 11:06pm sufferwords:

roto toms? sweet - deserving of the twin spin- what a happening Alaskan she is
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/14/19 11:11pm efd:

she was such a delight! So glad I was able to talk to her, glad you all enjoyed as well.
  Wed. 8/14/19 11:12pm DB:

The vocals on that Graham Day sounded uncannily like Ted Leo...

@DB oh interesting... I didn't make that connection, will listen again!
  Wed. 8/14/19 11:19pm DB:
