Speaking of Sir Douglas, where should I start with Doug Sam?
  12:15pm egould310:

@JoeB I saw Silver Synthetic in Seattle last week. I was wearing a WFMU sweatshirt (I had like five people ask me about WFMU). After the show, I talked to the band about the station and Three Chord Monte. The lead guitar player grew up in NJ and listened to WFMU. Nice guys, good band.

Avatar 12:16pm Joe B:

@tim - be aware that the best of the sir douglas quintet is an album not a best of!
  12:17pm Andres:

Tim: I was prompted by that song to read an article about Doug Sahm. Seems there is a huge legacy there.
Avatar 12:17pm Joe B:

i'd start with the 1969 mendocino album
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 12:17pm tim from washington:

Yo prof! Things holding up in TX?
Avatar 12:17pm John L:

Tim: My favorite is Mendocino, which is hard to find. You can probably hear the whole album on line.
Avatar 12:18pm John L:

Yeah, what Joe said.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 12:18pm Handy Haversack:

Nice, egould! Jealous you saw the show.

Hey, Yes, efd, Frank, Baja Joe, medson, John L., drr, annette, drr, Woods, Marley, Woo, DjLorraine, tim, prof.fuzz, Andres, all!
  12:18pm Amy:

Every time I listen to Doug Sahm, I'm reminded of how underrated he is.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 12:19pm tim from washington:

@Joe B - thanks for the pro tips!

@Andres - no kidding! I like everything I've heard on WFMU so I wasn't sure we're to jump in. I really like his Tex/Mex/zydeco songs.

Hey, Mike!

Yeah, I have had to wait out the prep school kids at Milano's.

Ach, Joe! I managed not to Belock myself this morning -- eating the Tofurky special now!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 12:30pm Handy Haversack:

We think of Harefield Road as just Wburg, I think. Hoping to make it Friday!
  12:30pm Tom from Stirling:

Does Milano's have a good eggplant parm sub?
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 12:30pm Handy Haversack:

Tom: YES.

Looking forward to Pete and The Piggies on Friday.
  12:32pm egould310:

“Belocked” is now the official term for “not having a deli sandwich cut entirely through the bottom bun”?

I can accept that.
  12:33pm dano59:

I’m making meatballs for subs tonight
  12:33pm dano59:

tomato sauce is a vegetable, I hope
  12:33pm Tom from Stirling:

Please go on, karlward!
Avatar 12:52pm Hubig Pie:

Benedictine and bacon of B&B liquor fame

@Hubig no it's a southern thing I guess. Cucumber spread.

Does anyone know the timing for the show Friday night? The Harefield Road website is not helpful.

I saw The Clash on this tour. So much fun. Gees, hard to pick a favorite album.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 1:00pm McGroovey:

I was watching TV, and suddenly I had a psychic urge to turn on the radio, and magically the Linda Lindas song was just kicking off.

I'm taking my teenage daughter to one of the Linda Lindas/Jawbreaker shows, but I'm hoping to figure out a way to go to the Mercury Lounge show.

Loving the Meatbodies and my choice to have two linked Bluetooth speakers in my basement office! (Oontz angle 3 Raindance. Two for around $60. Mostly indestructible and very portable.)

Hey Esther! It's off the Graham Ave stop on the L. Cool small joint that doesn't have shows that often. We plan on going, so it would be great to see you there.

does that mean actual stereo Stevel??

oh that'd be so fun and sounds like a cool new place. was heartbroken to miss the big TV eye show last sat (due to 2nd stomach bug this month). i'll see how i feel. also hoped to catch thelma and the sleaze at heaven can wait thurs.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 1:11pm Stevel:

Meatbodies just got added to the must-attend-when-possible list.

clarke: Yes. You can also run them mono. Very happy. I won't post a sales link, but look 'em up and see what they have.

These speakers are designed to connect to each other, which made it nice, cause I hate learning new tech processes.

Handy: Good for you! Not a strong point for them, or many devices.

I agree. Just because Casbah and Should I Stay were so popular. So what?

Combat Rock has my favorite Clash song which is "Straight to Hell"
  1:21pm Amy:

That was an excellent rant, Joe!
  1:22pm egould310:

It’s not a sell out. The Clash were dragging punk towards the 21st Century. The audience were not ready.

The "Rock the Casbah" video was shot in Austin Texas, which was a fun thing to find out when I lived there. I probably wouldn't try to put together a tour of the still-extant locations though. It would underwhelm.

People who worry too much about cred, or selling out, or whatever, are worrying too much about the unimportant stuff, and bothering the rest of us with their anxieties.

OK, the afternoon work rush has died down. So, here's the official "hi" to everyone! Had a good weekend hanging with Handy, Lesley, and Mike In Brooklyn over the weekend at TV Eye.

Lesley, really enjoyed the Rhoda Dakar Drop In that you put together. Went nicely back to back with Ranking Full Stop yesterday.

Mercury Rev was amazing on that split bill with Brian Jonestown last night in Philly. They killed it. Gotta say, I'm not sure I got BJTM though. Super sloppy sh*tshow. Odd crowd too. Had some suburban Karen yelling out song titles in my ear all night, until I split. Not sure who's their prime audience.

ouch, frank! is newcastle in danger of getting relegated???

Really miss that place. Remember it was so humid, everything had, like dew on it?
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:04pm efd:

@McGroovey I saw you in your Euclid Records t-short (attn. clarke, drr, et al.) but never made it over to chat.
I'm still annoyed that the DJ bum-rushed Eyelids off the stage as soon as their set was over, depriving them of what would have been a well-deserved encore.
Avatar 🎸 2:05pm K8:

Agreed, efd! We all wanted that Eyelids encore!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:05pm drr:

Clarke: they did a reunion show in 2020 (?). They finally got their record pressed on vinyl.

Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:06pm McGroovey:

@Handy No, you tried. I was just never beside Frank, and I was having trouble hearing most of the conversations I was trying to have. Cuz it was loud, and my ears have been on too many loud rooms.

@clarke & drr: I really am trying to cut back on my record-buying this year since I've got scores of records I bought last year that I haven't fully checked out yet (and finding tons of things I forgot I had while slowly entering my singles into Discogs), but it's so hard to resist the siren call of a record store!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:09pm Frank In Queens:

@efd and K8, yeah it was too bad they couldn't have done another song or two.
  2:10pm clarke:

it's a LOT of temptation, fo'sho'!!

The Halloween cover-a-band tradition is a good one. We were FLIPPER last Halloween, playing on a flatbed trailer in the middle of an artist/meth(???) trailer compound in the wood of northeast texas. fun times!

Missed my chance to see BJM the night after I fell and broke my neck in Seattle. My friends got me a T shirt, said the show was OK, not great.
2 yrs ago I found a Dandies hoody in a Bklyn thrift. I was a fan of Dig! so I sometimes wear them together as a comment on the duality of man … or something
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:11pm drr:

I want to talk about it: my 2-piece band All-Night Movers appeared as ELO (butchered Mr Blue Sky but did a good Don't Bring Me Down) and then I was the Captain in a Captain Beefheart cover act (Tropical Hot Dog Night being the highlight).

@drr: you guys as the Lynne Twins looks hilarious
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:31pm prof.fuzz:

first band, jerk unicorn, played three little folk-punk ditties (12-string acoustic through a fuzz pedal + 2 drummers), and then the bar owner stumbled to the stage, mumbling to the room, reached up and pulled a switch, killing power to the stage. He then told Jerk Unicorn, "Your music makes me want to kill myself." The Jerk Unicorn frontman was very polite and apologized. Bar owner then flopped down on a nasty couch about 15 feet from the front of the stage and played "happy hands" with some random middle-age woman (who we learned later was NOT his wife, because Wifey was divorcing the guy and suing for ownership of the bar). Oh my virgin eyes! Fortunately, they left, we played our set and then drove up to Hammond for the night (we were playing Memphis the next night). When we got to the motel, FB was blowing up, asking what had happened to Jerk Unicorn at the BSB. The winning theory was they got booted for "jerking a unicorn" (whatever that might mean)! So, I wrote a song about it called, "Jerking a Unicorn." I won't post a link, but I'm gonna bet it's the only song by that title on bandcamp. :)

Going to try to get to the Eyelids show tomorrow night in Phila, if everything goes well. Might have to miss the opener. No excuse to miss, since its 15 minutes walk from the house.

clarke, my NOLA career spanned 1986-2006, and Sly Stone was definitely a highlight of SOS. Wish there were more Sonny Sharrock and Hugh Masekela
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:52pm spodiodi:

thanks for all the great music today, Joe! ... just like the olden days
take care everyone
  2:52pm clarke:

hubig, you were in nola during the time i was mostly away. i moved back circa 97 - just AFTER the la pizza kitchen tragedy, actually - same week.

Foo Fighters is not my bag at all and I think Dave Grohl is the modern day Phil Collins (sorry Sheila) but it's too bad Taylor Hawkins died unexpectedly. It seems like folks in Foo Fighters are genuinely nice people. I can only imagine what they're going through.

Great show Joe. Thanks
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:53pm spodiodi:

Great afternoon of tunes, Joe! Thank you!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:53pm McGroovey:

@clarke I'll try! I have a bad memory for where people are from, though. We usually go in the summer. Not sure yet if we'll be going this year. I hate the heat, but my wife is a teacher, so we're stuck with New Orleans in the summer.

That was a tough one clarke, we ate at LPK the Fri. before and our waiter was one of the victims

The video of Nandi Bushell playing "Everlong" with the Foo Fighters is one of the best things I've seen recently. Just pure joy, which we sure don't have enough of.

@EFD, thanks for the info, I'll definitely make it a priority.
  2:55pm Robin in SF:

Times Like These is a nice follower to Cold Day in the Sun. SO sad to have lost Taylor Hawkins. Excellent show Joe. Thanks!
  2:55pm clarke:

McG - i am around this summer (mostly)!! get in touch with EFD - he knows how to reach me.

Cheers Joe! Great show. Enjoy the rest of the day everyone!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:56pm tim from washington:

@Hubig - Yeah! I was listening to the Herbie Mann song and thought "holy shit! This guitarist is amazing". Then I remembered Sonny Sharock played with Herbie Mann. I haven't seen the film yet but was Herbie playing shirtless?

Tim from W. can't recall on that. The movie was mostly pretty great but it was frustrating when the commenters were stepping all over some of the performances
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:59pm Fishtown Mike:
