Happy Thanksgiving, Tony! Do you celebrate the traditional Western pagan holidaze?
Avatar Tue. 12/3/19 12:09pm Tony Coulter:

Can anyone ID today's mystery LP under the cassettes? (Not that there's too much to go on -- but, still.)
Avatar 🎃 Tue. 12/3/19 12:10pm Nick S.:

Is the mystery record Journey's Frontiers?
Avatar Tue. 12/3/19 12:11pm Tony Coulter:

Heya, Nick S! I sort of celebrated Thanksgiving. There was no turkey for me, since I'm a vegetable -- but I knocked the stuffing out of the stuffing.

Avatar Tue. 12/3/19 12:12pm Tony Coulter:

Nope -- it's not Journey. The artist's initials are F.F.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/3/19 12:12pm Yvang:

Totally mysterious to me, but based on the tv/video lines aesthetic, I would say it's at least from the eighties, right?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/3/19 12:13pm Yvang:

And it's not Franz Ferdinand

@ Yvang: Indeed, it is from the '80s. 1987, to be exact.

This F.F. actually had a show on FMU for a while, back in the '80s.

It's Frith's "The Technology of Tears": www.discogs.com...
Avatar Tue. 12/3/19 12:32pm Tony Coulter:

Frith's FMU show (which was pretty short-lived, I think) is what actually got me listening to the station, along with R. Stevie Moore's show. I stumbled on Frith's program while randomly flipping the dial, in search of something listenable.
Avatar Tue. 12/3/19 12:33pm Tony Coulter:

He maybe even have just been a guest host for a couple of weeks, or something. I should try to find out, since I've been repeating this story for years.
Avatar Tue. 12/3/19 12:40pm Kay:

Joyeuses Mécaniques ! sounded a little heavy on the left channel. Are your heads aligned?
Avatar Tue. 12/3/19 12:41pm Tony Coulter:

Hiya, Kay! I noticed that too -- I *think* it's the tape, and not my deck.
Avatar Tue. 12/3/19 12:46pm Tony Coulter:

A lot of these self-released cassettes have channel imbalance problems -- probably a function of them being cranked out by the artists themselves, on their own sometimes overused and dodgy cassette decks. Can drive me nuts when I focus on it ... so I try not to!

Avatar Tue. 12/3/19 12:56pm Kay:

It's like, do I record with Dolby B/C on, or not? Do I playback a tape with Dolby B/C listed with that noise deadening setting?
Avatar Tue. 12/3/19 12:58pm Tony Coulter:

Yea, that can be maddening too: some tapes that claim to be dolby-ized sound far worse with dolby on.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/3/19 1:02pm Yvang:

the dolby purpose was to kill the tape hiss, but the sound was harmed too...
Avatar Tue. 12/3/19 1:03pm Tony Coulter:

Exactly. Every once in a while dolby works well -- but usually it doesn't.
Avatar 🎃 Tue. 12/3/19 1:06pm Martinibomb:

Cool stuff
Avatar Tue. 12/3/19 1:07pm Tony Coulter:

Yeah -- this is a great comp. Everything I've heard on this label is really good.

Hi! Gotta love a band called Dream Flesh (or Dreamflesh)!
Avatar Tue. 12/3/19 1:21pm Tony Coulter:

By the way, this cassette's tracklist *does* list the Dream Flesh track as "Original Copylat," even though he sings "Original Copycat." It's probably just a typo, but I am a faithful scribe, so....

Hi Tony. Looks like I am in for the evening. GtDR is the one for me tonight and your show is going well. Thanks.

Hey there, doctorjazz and Dave!!
  Tue. 12/3/19 1:33pm Dave in St Albans UK:

Love the music of Enno Velthuys. His music used to be a feature on Ad Visser's Hilversum 3 radio programme "Super Clean Dream Machine" in the 80's. I need more! :)-)
Avatar 🎃 Tue. 12/3/19 1:34pm Sonderangebot:

Hi Tony & al, super tape again.
Avatar Tue. 12/3/19 1:35pm Tony Coulter:

@ Dave in St Albans: Interesting! Don't know that radio program...
Avatar Tue. 12/3/19 1:35pm Tony Coulter:

Hey, Sonderangebot! Glad you like the tape!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 12/3/19 1:36pm Asheville Jon:

Do you have any more info about this Mark Klee track?
Is this "Mr. Mark" from Allentown, PA?
  Tue. 12/3/19 1:39pm Dave in St Albans UK:

A weekly hour long show. Listened mainly on AM and occasionally on VHF (FM) when conditions allowed in the Summer. There is a website dedicated to the show which has many recordings available to download. A treat. Also there was a feature programme of Enno's music last month on NTS Radio.
Avatar Tue. 12/3/19 1:39pm Tony Coulter:

Hiya, Asheville Jon! Not sure where this Mark Klee is from (other than the U.S.).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 12/3/19 1:41pm Asheville Jon:

Thanks. I saw the "video" on the tube of you, and it gives the impression that it is, but it sure does not sound like him, and I've never heard a Mr Mark show with this track being played in it. I guess it's possible though. (and I knew him personally, so there's that too)
Avatar Tue. 12/3/19 1:43pm Tony Coulter:

This tape does come with a booklet, which might answer your question -- but I can't find it at the moment.
  Tue. 12/3/19 1:43pm Dave in St Albans UK:

Tony this is a magical show tonight. Appreciate it very much.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 12/3/19 1:45pm Asheville Jon:

No problem Tony. I am just a big Mr Mark fan, and possibly "finding" new stuff is always nice to add to the "collection".
Avatar Tue. 12/3/19 1:45pm Tony Coulter:

Thanks, Dave!
  Tue. 12/3/19 1:45pm Dean:

Per a YouTube comment from 2014, "Mark Klee was a bay area artist and radio host who shot himself in 2001. Very creative, some of his artwork made it to Unsound 3."
Avatar Tue. 12/3/19 1:46pm Tony Coulter:

@ Dean: That sounds like this tape's Mark Klee.
Avatar 🎃 Tue. 12/3/19 1:47pm Martinibomb:

This one is yum yums
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 12/3/19 1:49pm Asheville Jon:

yeah, but Mark Klee aka Mr Mark was definitely not from the bay area, and "killed himself" in PA.

yeh that Steve Ainworth track was cool.. oh man neat drums on this Subject one
Avatar Tue. 12/3/19 1:50pm Mr Fab:

hey ya'll! Tony, are you still not archiving the Tape Hiss selections? Cuz "One for Bangkok" is rad. Lotsa great stuff here.
  Tue. 12/3/19 1:51pm Dean:

Here's a YT of the PA Mr. Mark: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X8rXHM0gdxQ

I'll guess that reference to "bay area" was mistaken.
Avatar Tue. 12/3/19 1:52pm Tony Coulter:

Hey, Mr. Fab! Yeah, I'm still not archiving these Tape Hisses. (Not my idea, by the way -- it's a "management" decision -- because I play whole releases on Tape Hiss shows and sometimes unreleased stuff.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 12/3/19 1:53pm Webhamster Henry:

I'm diggin' the lousiness of that drum machine!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 12/3/19 1:54pm Webhamster Henry:

@martinibomb the right thing to do is tape it with a cassette recorder right off the internet.
Avatar Tue. 12/3/19 1:54pm Tony Coulter:

Hola, Henry Hamster!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 12/3/19 1:55pm Webhamster Henry:

That is Mr. Fab -- if my tape machine didn't need new drive belts I'd be doing it!
Avatar Tue. 12/3/19 1:58pm Mr Fab:

Alas, I no longer have a working tape player. I heard thrift stores don't even sell 'em anymore. Garage sales, maybe?
Avatar 🎃 Tue. 12/3/19 2:00pm Martinibomb:

I wish I'd been recording this show
Avatar 🎃 Tue. 12/3/19 2:02pm Martinibomb:

Just got a working tape player over the summer.
Avatar 🎃 Tue. 12/3/19 2:03pm Martinibomb:

@Fab the best place is used record shops sometimes sell gear like that at least here in Portland. I got mine from my buddy at Clinton street records. There's gotta be a place in LA that is similar?
Avatar Tue. 12/3/19 2:04pm Mr Fab:

Probably, It's just that when i go to used record shops I just look at records! But will look in to that.

Good and weird accompaniment to massaging numbers into some semblance of real world likelihood, my gratitude is boundless, DJ Tony. Thx.

Decent cassette decks are still being made -- so you can still buy 'em new.
