Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:36am McGroovey:

@Adam West Coaster
Green Manalishi is obviously superior. I can actually hear it in my head now on the right side of head. (I have an earbud in my left ear listening to WFMU). When I turn off Green Manalishi, I can't turn on Red Barchetta. I can't remember how it goes, though I've probably heard it 2,387½ times at least.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:37am McGroovey:

Darren, I hope you're dancing to Use No Hooks. Not too far away from the board, of course.
  1:38am rw:

What's Red Barchetta? Is it a Rush song?

Red bruchetta! Now THAT sounds good right about now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:39am McGroovey:

I'm actually seeing Darren dancing, as I listen to Use No Hooks in my left ear, and Green Manalishi on the right side of my head.
  1:39am Adam West Coaster:

@McGroovey, I’m 98% certain there is a section of Red Barchetta where one hears thwackata, thwackata, thwackata, followed by a gentle “tingggg.”

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:07am McGroovey:

One of my hometown ride-around-in-the-car-and-get-high friends, Mike, was a huge Bon Scott fan. Mike was convinced that Bon's spirit entered his (Mike's) body after he (Bon) died. Mike sang in my friend's band, and they played some AC/DC songs so Mike could let his Bon ghost sing. Mike actually sang more like Brian Johnson, though. Oh, and Mike actually changed his name to Bonz Roxon. True story.

it was the opposite of punk.

The first Judas Priest album I ever heard was Screaming for Vengeance playing in a friend’s dad’s VW van as I was being driven home after a sleepover. 4th grade, I think. Blew my wig off.

I bet that cover of Green Manalishi by the Need is excellent!

Well, for the sake of historical accuracy, I'll admit that it was actually musky cassettes, not 8-tracks. Though one friend did have an 8-track in his car.

That Bon was a scamp, possessing a guy and making think he sounded like him but having him come off like Brian Johnson.

I recommend pledging & getting a WFMU t-shirt out of it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:20am coelacanth∅:

oh and i see a few more of what could be called 'metal at least. maybe ~30% metal...ish
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:20am McGroovey:

@ultradamno the bands in that Heavy Metal 8-track were all big with my pals, except Faces (that rumor about Rod...), T-Rex (similar), the MC5 ("WTF kind of Punk crap is that?"). My friends were OK guys, but we were small-town white kids, and it was the seventies.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:21am ultradamno:

I saw them a few times, each entirely different but equally effective.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:21am Scott67:

I'm wearing it right now! 👍😎🤘

@northguineahills:Tell your local congressman you want more Paul Bruno on WFMU! (Or not. Just pledge actually.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:22am McGroovey:

I only know the Sun City Girls from the records they made with Eugene Chadbourne. I've never gotten around to listening to their Chadless records.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:22am coelacanth∅:

i was outspoken in school about what i thought was a highly unlikely rumour about Rod...even though i hated his music by then.
  2:23am rw:

Not that anyone cares, but I just remembered that trip to the Grand Canyon with the Judas Priest 8-track was the first time I smoked pot.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:24am TomDash:

OK, throwing one more up for a chance to win - Gunn-Truscinski Duo - pledge $20 or more before end of show!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:24am Paulie B:

@rw: I think I was listening to the Stooges "Gimme Danger" the first time I got high. Bowie's mix never sounded so good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:25am ultradamno:

You have to be able to expand your definition of heavy metal to include Eagles and Van Morrison before you can appreciate Warner's vision on that record.

Still, it did introduce me to MC5
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:25am ultradamno:

...though it's the 'brothers and sisters' version, natch.
  2:26am Adam West Coaster:

@rw, I absolutely care, but did you play “Dissident Aggressor” while doing it? 😉
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:26am Scott67:

Hey Madge! We have another tastemaker who chose the Eat Flaming Death T-shirt.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:26am Paulo AD:

Scott I can get behind that powerlifting haha
  2:27am rw:

Nah, it was my first time. I didn't get high. First time I got high was at my friend Bill's house. I knocked on his front door after school, his 6 yr old brother answered and said, "Who the fuck are you? You asshole".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:27am Paulie B:

@ultradamno: I believe "Brothers and sisters" was sampled by Public Enemy on "Welcome to the Terrordome." Maybe from that comp?! So there's that!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:27am McGroovey:

The definition of "metal" was much more vague in the seventies than it became in the eighties. In the seventies, it was almost anything you might play air guitar to that wasn't punk.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:27am coelacanth∅:

my brother and his friends were sitting around the living room, listening to panama red on my father's stereo, and passed what was called a regular cigarette to 12-year-old me.
but i didn't get high 'till 2 times later, with his friends but in his absence, by the river with no music...except the voices of pretty girls.
i could hardly stand up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:28am Scott67:

  2:30am rw:

S67, It was sort of like listening to this track. Even without getting high.

And coel, he's all grown up now but he loves it when I tell that story! He was the victim of a lot of older brothers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:30am coelacanth∅:

ultra, i called bto "hard rock" at the time
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:31am Paulie B:

@Scott67: If you would like to do that, a pledge for $20 gets you in the running for that Gunn-Truscinski Duo LP. Your odds are pretty good right now! (Can't supply the Grand Canyon though.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:31am McGroovey:

Hey, this Hunches is great. These Hunches are great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:32am Scott67:

Paulie.B, & I can't fly there mate.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:33am ultradamno:

Well, BTO routinely put heavy metals on their albums covers, so that was suggestive.

I liked that Gunn-Truscinski thing... I might pledge again to get in the running for that!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:36am mariano:

Geez, first time I smoked I got really high. I was 15, with friends of mine, and we were riding around in a pickup with a box full of water balloons bombarding people. I didn't realize it would make my mouth so dry, so I kept trying to bite into the balloons to drink the water, but I only succeeded in completely drenching myself.
  2:36am rw:

Haha! Nice story, mariano.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:48am McGroovey:

I've heard this version of Essence Rare before (long ago), but I don't know where.

I saw the Go4 live at the Chance in Poughkeepsie in 1984. Steve Goulding of the Mekons was on drums. They were great. Even the songs from Hard were great.

That's my Gang of 4 report.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:57am ultradamno:

That they wouldn't do that early stuff at that point isn't too surprising. As soon as people started to appreciate Entertainment! They started to openly sour on their own musical formula
