@Mr Fab - I would love to go to Hawaii :-)
Avatar Mon. 1/13/20 5:27pm Mr Fab:

"exotica" records, meant to say, ha ha. Supposedly, hearing the birds tweating in the background inspired their use.
Denny or Lyman said that.

@Mr Fab - I'd heard it ages ago, so I watched about five different videos and they all said slightly different things, so I put in the caveat "so I've heard" because I couldn't figure out what was what ;-)

Hilariously enough I was at the Pot store down the street and this old guy started chatting with me about my WFMU shirt and it turned out he was the guy I bought that Martini Moog record from back in the 90s he had a store in SF I used to go to.

The Korla Pandit show aired on Portland TV back in the day. I remember my mom once waxing nostalgic about early, often live, TV and she described his show, although couldn't recall his name. Just some guy in a turban playing the organ and making eyes at all the housewives watching it.

I pretty much buy any Yma Sumac record I run across, even if I already have it, but once bought a LP version of Xtabay and was delighted to find a libretto/program from a live performance by her inside.
But when I looked more closely, it was Emcee'd by Penn Gillette! It was from the 80s. Oh well, it's still cool!

Martinibomb and I were attempting to bring one of our fellow Portland DJs over to the dark side and Sheena's Jungle Room - a guy who did a tiki/lounge/exotica show here in Portland for the last couple of decades. He jumped ship on his station and is doing who knows what now.

Read Kon-Tiki in the late 90s, paperback. Need to read it again to refresh but enjoyed it.

Nope - my parents' copy of "Joy Of Sex" was definitely not a display copy. <shudder>
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/13/20 6:27pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Mr Fab - exactly! I think that's why I love it so much. It's just so ... random :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Mon. 1/13/20 6:29pm Otis Fodder:

Reading Kon-Tiki was a passage, slightly akin to Tropic of Cancer or Junkie & Naked Lunch. The books to dig into.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/13/20 6:30pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Wow - Tropic of Cancer. My parents' slightly more sophisticated friends had a copy of that. ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/13/20 6:30pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

not for us to say really.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/13/20 6:41pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Granny - good point. What I was stumbling to say was that I think it comes from an admiring place. It's not meant to poke fun or incite hatred. Completely the opposite.
  Mon. 1/13/20 6:42pm Rob:

People understandably have a problem with the word "exotic" I do not think that the music that is called Exotica is racist
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/13/20 6:43pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Rob - another excellent point.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/13/20 6:45pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

It's like my mum putting pineapple in the dish and calling it "Polynesian". It always was because she thought it was interesting and something different and enjoyable. It came from a good place.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/13/20 6:46pm Linda Lee:

I'm wondering how much cultural appropriation actually took place ~ or if exotica isn't more akin to jazz than anything else. you don't really say someone like Gerry Mulligan, say. is dong cultural appropriation..
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/13/20 6:46pm Linda Lee:

it's just an evolving hybrid form.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/13/20 6:47pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@LL - I think that Exotica really is just such a mish-mash that it's a thing in and of itself in the end.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/13/20 6:47pm Linda Lee:

that's what I'm thinking too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/13/20 6:47pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Jesus - I just typed in the next record and it suggested "UK Disco Mix". When you see what it is ... lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/13/20 6:47pm Linda Lee:

& in another sense, all music is cultural appropriation.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/13/20 6:48pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

And *now* ... I have to find the "UK Disco Mix" ;-)
  Mon. 1/13/20 6:48pm CC:

To try and emulate something that strikes you as far out and groovy is simply a compliment.. whether you make money off of it or not???
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/13/20 6:48pm Linda Lee:

.. but it's such a common language that the term loses meaning..
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/13/20 6:49pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@CC - basically, yep. :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/13/20 6:49pm Linda Lee:

maybe it's really about acknowledgement.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/13/20 6:49pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

A friend of mine mentioned an article he'd read about whether or not Exotica was racist and I said "absolutely not", and I thought I'd put it out there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/13/20 6:50pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

THIS is the track that apparently has a disco mix ...
