Street interviews, listener call-ins, vinyl gluttery, sporadic normalcy, original floperas and fiktion, blatant talking over songs, politix, tenderness, and a vague undercurrent of angst. Right up your alley!
May 1, 2006: The Dusty Show - Episode XXVII
Listen to this show: Pop‑up player!
|The Alarm||The Stand||The Alarm||A&M||1983||LP|
|The Byrds||The Bells Of Rhymney||The Now Sound||Columbia Special Products||1965||LP||Written by P. Seeger/ I Davies The version I played was from a promotional compilation CD distributed by Der Weinerschnitzel Hot Dog Restaurants!|
|The Surfaris||Surfer Joe||Wipe Out||Dot||1963||This B Side seems to be a song that everyone (older!) knows somehow. Probably because it's great. Certain songs like this remind me of the Zenith console stereo in my living room as a kid and the teeth marks I put in it when I was just tall enough to look inside to see the records turning around. I think I 'teethed" on it!|
|The Swimming Pool Cues||Rat Bait||The Deep End||DB||1981||Woefully little on the net about this great Atlanta band. I believe this has been re-issued on CD. Great live act.|
|Lord Sutch and Heavy Friends||Flashing Lights||Lord Sutch and Heavy Friends||Cotillion||1970||LP||Practically a Led Zeppelin LP sans Plant. Page and Bonham assist the legendary Lord Sutch, relatively unknown in the US but sa colorful figure in swinging London. Read all about this fascinating character who sadly hanged himself in 1999 in this Wikipedia entry. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Screaming_Lord_Sutch|
|Paul McCartney||Ram On||Ram||Apple||1971||LP||Lo-Fi Paul. A sentimental fave. Larry from Lackawack shed tears over this and I don't blame him. Simple. Melodic. Paul. Ram On!|
|String Driven Thing||To See You||The Machine That Cried||Charisma||1973||LP||Quite popular across the pond in its day. The Dylan influence is obvious. James from England wrote to tell me this song reminded him of riding his motorcycle way back then in his red leather trousers. Nice! I like when the songs I play stir up memories for people. Music is so magical that way. As cliche as that sounds.|
Dusty sings the ultimate love song.
Production music from the 80's.
|Sammy Davis, Jr.||Spinning Wheel||Something For Everyone||Motown||1970||LP||The grooviest! You have to love Sammy. Even when he kissed Nixon. Here, has one eye on the past and one on the future even though he had but one eye! An amazing rendition of the David Clyton-Thomas classic. Doin' his own thing man!|
|The Wrest||Bet Your Sweet Bippy||Target||1969||45||I just found out this was a Wisconsin band! And of course, The Dusty Show is produced here in Wisconsin as well. So I can enjoy fame by geographical association. This was of course inspired by the Bet Your Sweet Bippy phrase employed on TV's Rowan and MArtin's Laugh-In which also gave us the phrase "Here Come Da Judge!"|
|Vanessa Redgrave||Pink Angora||Red and Blue||United Artists||1967||From the short film Red and Blue. Still not sure exactly what is happening in this song. I guess she is riding around on a motorbike seducing men in her pink angora sweater.|
|Sandy Nelson||Teen Beat||Teen Beat||Imperial||1959||LP||He made many many great drum albums that get quite experimental later on in his career. He also had a big hit with "Let There Be Drums" and actually lost a foot in an accident in 1962. Here is a great read on Sandy Nelson. http://www.spaceagepop.com/nelson.htm|
|Adam And The Ants||Antmusic||Kings Of The Wild Frontier||CBS||1980||LP||Fun! They hooked up with Pistols svengali Malcolm Macleran to help them get over. Even though some band members defected to Bow Wow Wow. Remember when he broke his ankle on TV? I think it was the Motown 25 show or something.|
Over The Hutch
|Timmy Thomas||Why Can't We Live Together||Adam VIII Presents Soul Train||Adam VIII Ltd.||1973||LP||This is so cool. Just an organ and a primitive drum machine and Timmy. This never ever stops sounding good to me. Thomas was house organist for the legendary Miami TK (Glades) label. Steve Winwood later recorded this song.|
Prepping for Iron Mike Lupica
|Bloodrock||It's A Sad World (Edit)||USA||Capitol||1972||LP||I knew it wasn't just me. I just went online and read skads of great reviews of this LP. And I always felt guilty about it being one my favorites. It really is a good album. My only regret is that I wimped out and edited it down. I will play more in the future. Be warned.|
|I got lots of e-mail from this music show. I don't ordinarily play so much music. Thanks for checking in! I would love to hear from YOU. Yes YOU! Why haven't you e-mailed yet? email@example.com And .... call the Dusty Show Answering Machine at 201.521.1375 immediately to leave some whacky s--t I can play on the show. I cannot believe that someone as creative and strange as you must be to even be reading this right now isn't compelled to call and drain your mind on tape so I can make you a mini-star. 201.521.1375 Seriously .... I really love the Dusty listeners. you guys are the best and I really appreciate your continued support. I know the show sucks about half-the-time. I'm trying! Please tune in frequently.
