Listener comments!

  Mon. 2/21/11 3:06pm BSI:

.... it is time.
  Mon. 2/21/11 3:06pm Scott:

Glad you think so!
  Mon. 2/21/11 3:11pm marq:

I trimmed my beard a couple of days ago. my beard gets really wirey and crazy. need to groom it once in awhile. how is Scott's beard doing?
  Mon. 2/21/11 3:20pm BSI:

Working on a potentially fatal magazine deadline right now... Definitely in the grips of a "calgon, take me away" psychic need. Good stuff here on radio thing. It's like being nestled in the womb of some terrible lizard. ..... and yes, it is time..... to tame thee beard, which is Out Ov Control.
  Mon. 2/21/11 3:24pm Scott:

I don't wanna be a beard
  Mon. 2/21/11 3:32pm Joe D:

the Williamsbeard, though mighty, is merely a microcosm of the man behind it
  Mon. 2/21/11 3:32pm Griff Muttlegg:

I trimmed my beard the other day. Its never the same after, but it needs to be done yo.
  Mon. 2/21/11 3:32pm marq:

three guys I know opened up a tap room a couple of years ago. two of them decided to have a beard growing contest or something. they got really long. then I saw one of them on saturday at a roller derby. shaved. there was another guy there we both knew. he was coaching one of the teams. his beard is huge and red. someone said his type of beard was called the pizza paddle. because it fans out like the wooden pizza paddles to get pizzas out of ovens. didn't realize there are types of beards.
  Mon. 2/21/11 3:33pm Wendy del Formaggio:

I don't recall Bryan Ferry ever having a beard.
  Mon. 2/21/11 3:34pm Joe D:

little known fact: Bryan Ferry actually invented No-Shave November
  Mon. 2/21/11 3:35pm Griff Muttlegg:

  Mon. 2/21/11 3:41pm Wendy del Formaggio:

eew, I like Bryan Ferry better clean-shaven.
  Mon. 2/21/11 3:43pm ?:

This is SAVAGELY funky.
  Mon. 2/21/11 3:43pm still b/p:

Phil Manzanera was on well-suited whisker duty for the band back in the day. Beatles all did beards, but not sure there was a four-for-four/simultaneous timing. Unlikeliest visual ref of the day:

  Mon. 2/21/11 3:43pm BSI:

Thanks unto Calgon.
  Mon. 2/21/11 3:45pm marq:

makes me think of beard rock
  Mon. 2/21/11 3:46pm BSI:

These beards remain steadfastly untrimmed.
  Mon. 2/21/11 3:46pm postmanpaul:

Enjoying the show Scott. Have got a beard in my underpants, very retro', I believe.
  Mon. 2/21/11 3:49pm still b/p:

ZZ Top in your bottoms?
  Mon. 2/21/11 3:52pm Looms:

For the record, what Jean-Hervé Peron's words on this track is really something dirty.
  Mon. 2/21/11 3:53pm postmanpaul:

...untrimmed still b/p, hot-curl manicured and platted with silk ribbons.
  Mon. 2/21/11 3:54pm Looms:

Well, nevermind the broken English, you get the picture.
  Mon. 2/21/11 3:54pm Scott:

Thanks Looms - I'm guessing the vague gauzy CD cover is as well.
  Mon. 2/21/11 3:54pm Jeffersonic DSK:

Aw-right! This Joe Maphis tune is such a great one! Been practicing it for years....can't make it sound this good yet!
  Mon. 2/21/11 3:55pm BSI:

jeezus! I've only heard the very earliest Add N to (X), so this sounds positively "musical" ....
  Mon. 2/21/11 3:55pm Scott:

Jeffersonic DSK, I'm going home to smash another guitar, just like I do every time I listen to Maphis.
  Mon. 2/21/11 3:57pm postmanpaul:

The Add N to (X) ?! Caught miss Gold frapp last September, was heavenly.
  Mon. 2/21/11 3:57pm Looms:

Yes Scott. Faust is still kicking asses after all these hard working decades.
  Mon. 2/21/11 3:58pm still b/p:

Good luck in the competition at the county fair, pmp.
  Mon. 2/21/11 3:59pm BSI:

I was a huge fan of Goldfrapp's first, thought Black Cherry had its moments, but she lost it for me after that. But Felt Mountain is a thing of beauty.
  Mon. 2/21/11 4:00pm Jeffersonic DSK:

Have you heard the electric guitar version of Maphis' "Fire On The Strings?". It's insanely, breathtakingly good, I think.
  Mon. 2/21/11 4:00pm Scott:

"YOU'RE WORTHLESS WILLIAMS!!" - Joe Maphis
  Mon. 2/21/11 4:02pm Jeffersonic DSK:

Wow. Joe sounds kinda' like R. Lee Ermey.
  Mon. 2/21/11 4:03pm postmanpaul:

Black Mountain, for sure. Danced all the way home from their gig, BSI.
No one their under 40!
  Mon. 2/21/11 4:03pm marq:

what kind of beard would R. Lee Ermey have? a big taliban beard?
  Mon. 2/21/11 4:04pm Mechanical Man:

I cry a mechanical tear because I can not grow a mechanical beard.
  Mon. 2/21/11 4:05pm Plexipixel:

Mechanical hugz
  Mon. 2/21/11 4:06pm postmanpaul:

Mechanical bollocks.
  Mon. 2/21/11 4:07pm marq:

when i worked in a restaurants years ago I used to grab one of those steel wool scrubbies and say it was robot pubes. guess it could be a beard as well.
  Mon. 2/21/11 4:07pm Billy Jam:

Just tuning in now Scott.. Greetings from San Francisco - the land of (former WFMU guests) the Conspiracy of Beards - the all bearded acapella choir who do Leonard Cohen songs. In fact one member, also a KUSFer, stopped by the WFMU remote with me and Gaylord the other day

"Your 'stache is trash"
  Mon. 2/21/11 4:16pm marq:

i bet Yoko Ono would have grown a beard back when the Beatles grew beards for awhile if she could have. because she's cool like that.
  Mon. 2/21/11 4:18pm BSI:

Mechanical beard bollocks.
  Mon. 2/21/11 4:19pm Looms:

Thanks for the introduction to Slapp Happy, didn't know this project at all.
  Mon. 2/21/11 4:39pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

in between sit-ups and eating cookies I will occasionally post to the comment list. Hi Scott!
  Mon. 2/21/11 4:40pm Griff Muttlegg:

Don't do sit-ups AND eat cookies! Whats wrong with you?!!
  Mon. 2/21/11 4:41pm BSI:

whoa dude!
back to proto-BSI formative brain days! This Heldon track! Gaa!
  Mon. 2/21/11 4:42pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

doing sit-ups is not fun, but eating cookies and listening to Heldon IS. and yet I want to appear more attractive to my mate...
  Mon. 2/21/11 4:43pm TJ:

  Mon. 2/21/11 4:46pm Griff Muttlegg:

Hey Scott,
What was that crazy synthy piece in the background when you was talkin' just now?
  Mon. 2/21/11 5:20pm Scott:

Alexander Hamilton's Powdered Wig, that was "Bolero" done by Canadian disco star Kebekelektrik
  Mon. 2/21/11 5:20pm Mechanical Man:

Some version of Ravel's Bolero?
