Listener comments!

  12:01pm Marshall Stacks:

Liz B. comes BLASTING out of the gate!
  12:02pm dc p:

man, this King Kahn guy can do no wrong.
  12:02pm Joe Steele:

  12:03pm GP:

Happy Monday Liz, et al.
  12:03pm stingy d:

how come everything always reminds me of make-up?
  12:03pm dc pat:

you know, he sounds a lot like Svenonius though..
  12:04pm dc pat:

shit! stingy and I are on the same UFO!!
  12:06pm dc pat:

Svenonius is pretty freakin influential. He doesn't get a lot of credit though. This sounds like him too.
  12:09pm stingy d:

ha! nice call pat! and i agree wholeheartedly. he da bes.
  12:13pm Pearly Sweets:

Hand jive wit' me!
  12:20pm g g:

i was once in a band called pterodactyl rose...sure people think the t rex or the brontosaurus...but they tend to ignore the flying dinasaurs when naming a band
  12:21pm Pearly Sweets:

I could drive to this Real Estate song.
  12:21pm dc pat:

by the way, just saw chain and the gang here in dc and S was a the top of his game. Great show.
  12:22pm Pearly Sweets:

Aw... that is a bummer that they didn't record it that way. I really liked the sound of it.
  12:22pm Chris:

Man I was wondering about that Chain and the Gang thing, Couldn't make it. Comet must have been packed.
  12:25pm dc pat:

packed indeed. I couldn't move.
  12:25pm Pearly Sweets:

Aw... it is still adorable at regular speed!
  12:26pm ta da:

the 45 ver was better
  12:27pm Joe Steele:

Me thinks I shoulda been paying more attention.
  12:28pm Pearly Sweets:

That I'll agree too, if just that it was more spacy with the chipmunk vocals.
  12:28pm Pearly Sweets:

But regular speed was also a treat. So I'll be keeping an ear out for other real estate songs.
  12:28pm Andrew:

Oh man King Khan was so good Saturday! I was dancin my tush off!
  12:29pm ta da:

is this text from stargate?
  12:30pm tim:

Liz, Liz, LIZ! You've taken a powerful drug. Be assured, the effects will pass. Your arm is NOT a bloody stump.
  12:32pm Parq:

[obediently] Thanks, mom.
  12:33pm mark:

i'll take chaos theory over oracles anyday
  12:35pm mark:

are you going to barcalona? anything exciting planned?
  12:40pm Liz B.:

Hey everyone... yes, I'm heading to Barcelona to help with WFMU's broadcast at the Primavera Sound fest. Very exciting! Will be driving to the south of Spain afterwards to visit relatives.
  12:40pm stingy d:

i keep smoking weed. so dippy.
  12:44pm Jamed Malad:

Hello Ms. Berg!

Wanted to tell you i received your email! Thanks for taking the time to find that band for me. I have since contacted them myself. The when Mcgruff was king apparently has had their fair share of troubles as we all do. They assured me they would contact you to get some recordings heading your way, as well as send me copies!

Many thanks,

Jamed Malad Esq.
  12:45pm mark:

cool, i'm cycling down from santander, i'll try and say hello if i make it and see a wfmu tent

cant wait! just hope swine flu doesn't shut it down, looking like it'll be ok
  12:49pm ta da:

if i planned a trip to spain id consult an oracle before i go
  12:50pm north guinea hills:

I like the new shogun kunitoki stuff (and the old)
  12:52pm Leftover:

Is this the organ break fron In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida?
  12:55pm north guinea hills:

aztec camera obscura?
  12:59pm stingy d:

has anyone seen this car commercial that rips off the beck song... hippy girl something or other? be on the lookout!
  1:00pm GP:

If anyone here remembers that movie "Spinal Tap". I saw those guys this weekend on their "Unwigged and Unplugged" tour. They were pretty funny and played a bunch of stuff from all of their movies...anyway
  1:06pm ta da:

remember spinal tap!?!?! i dont know how many times i watched that movie in high school.
  1:07pm ta da:

well not actually in the school
  1:09pm owen:

quite. i dont just remember spinal tap; could probably recite the entire film...
  1:12pm phillip2167:

hey that was a rockin good song, but i dont know if it was druid perfume or king kahn and the shrines:(
  1:13pm GP:

I was pleasantly surprised that they are all actually pretty good musicians. Christopher Guest was playing a Mandolin for a few songs. Harry Shearer also was playing upright bass and electric bass ( I guess not entirely "unplugged").
  1:17pm Parq:

Mark, I have family by marriage in Santander, some in the city and some in the Entrambasaguas area. What part are you in? And I, too, am genetically imprinted with the dialog from "Spinal Tap".
  1:17pm ta da:

not as funny but good was their satire of folk music - but cant remember the title
  1:18pm GP:

"A Mighty Wind" was their folk song documentary
  1:23pm Marshall Stacks:

Harry Shearer had some amusing pre-tour anecdotes on his show, Le Show. Le Show is worth a listen; I subscribe to the podcast.
  1:24pm ta da:

ST much more funny than any ben stiller or judd (judge?) appatow(?)
  1:25pm ta da:

uh oh, im becoming nostalgic....thank god liz's music keeps me rooted in the present
  1:31pm detroitdave:

What is this?????? Sounds like "expletive used here". is the record skipping??
  1:32pm phillip2167:

liz,please how about some indie, like broadcast or the magnetic fields?????
  1:32pm GP:

Marshall Stacks, Thanks, I'll have to check it out.

Ta Da, 10-4 on that.
  1:36pm Marshall Stacks:

See, nothing wrong with a little Steely Dan every now and then.
  1:41pm Bad Ronald:

Somber Reptiles?
  1:45pm Parq:

Sorry I just had a pizza, I'm from northern england and getting the ferry to Santander, I prefer cycling to flying, shame its expensive, my friends flying london to barca for £40 return...
  1:53pm Ike:

Parq isn't from northern England and doesn't say "return" for "round-trip." Is that the mirror-universe bearded evil British Parq?
  1:56pm mb:

Thanks for the OY Liz B.! I was pulling through the drive thru, cracking up. Grassy ass.
  2:04pm HotRod:

Hey Liz! Did you go see King Khan this past weekend? They killed it at Maxwells this past Saturday night! :D
  2:07pm Parq:

Ike, no, it's Mark, putting my name in the "name" space intead of making it the first word of the message. Like, if I had non-thinkingly put "Ike" in the name line. Mark, knowing how mountainous Cantabria is, I'm impressed by your biking through it.
  2:17pm Ike:

Hey, anybody else been to the awesome Mexican/Latin food trucks at the Red Hook Ballfields on Saturdays and Sundays? They're amazing. I tried some great carne asada tacos, goat tacos, huarache, papas rellenos, loroco flower pupusas, tamarind drink, etc. etc. etc. We need food trucks like that in Newark.

This show keeps getting better and better, Liz! Wow.
  2:18pm Liz B.:

Didn't make it out to see King Khan on Sat unfortunately... seen 'em before though, fun fun band to see live!
  2:20pm GP:

Ike...shhhhhhhhh...hungry here.
  2:21pm Liz B.:

Love the food at the Red Hook ballpark... Went there a few summers ago and bought something yummy from each cart! Ceviche for $5!
  2:24pm dc pat:

Ike: eat the pig!

Man I love U.S. Girls
  2:26pm Parq:

Second US Girls play today. Prompted me to go back and read Scott W''s blog post on them, or actually, on her. Pretty cool person.
  2:27pm Ike:

This time, the ceviche was the only disappointing thing. Very cool chef Adeena Sussman figured that the easternmost truck added the lime juice beforehand, too early, instead of adding it at the time of purchase. But the second-from-easternmost truck was squeezing in lime when purchased, so it's probably better there. It's up to $7 now.

DC Punk, oh yeah, I had pork in my loroco flower and jalapeno pupusas.
  2:32pm GP:

Parq, is that on Beware of the Blog? I heard US Girls (Megan) live on FMU but I don't remember which show.
  2:36pm Parq:

GP, for the Girl that goes "boom" and Scott's adventure with same, see this and ye shall see all.

  2:38pm GP:

Thanks Parq..IT police have me lock out of that site..I'll check it out at home.
  2:43pm dc pünk:

I said eat the PIG! not pork..
  2:46pm E.L.:

I freak out every time I hear this S.M. Dorsey HS track.
  2:47pm What!:

GO TEAM GO! "What did you play in high school band"?
"Wha-wah pedal".
  2:51pm Woody:

Hey Liz-

Great upbeat show for a gray day! I like this African calypso track in particular.
  2:51pm mark:

yeah soz that was me, hmm, I've cycling over the pennines but there pretty pathetic to european hills, I'll probably get the train a bit of the way, if you buy a good bike (only £300) it ain't too bad

btw dunno when ur flying out but its the European Champions League final on the 27th, Barcalona will probably be in it, should be an interesting night if you like (proper) football, think I might sit in a spanish bar with a Man Utd shirt
  2:53pm What!:

Anyone: please defeat any Spanish team, ever, at anything. Please.
  2:55pm mark:

man utd will win for sure and england will win the 2010 world cup!
  2:57pm mic:

hey Liz
really great music!!!!

best from Italy
  2:58pm Joe Steele:

Well done today.
  2:59pm dc pat:

Oh we're talking futbol now, eh? Ireland and Germany forever. ANYONE but England.
