Listener comments!

  9:06am postmanpaul (":

hi liz and wfmu lounge lizards! lovely day in the workshop here, hope it is where you are
  9:07am annie:

mornin PMP, mornin liz, et al
  9:11am Dead Corporate Eyes:

always love the way you start out these Monday mornings, easing, easing...
  9:13am DumbSchmuck:

I love this Opal, Galaxie 500 groove and haze
  9:13am postmanpaul (":

whats with the bees liz?!
  9:13am Liz B.:

Hi everyone! Gotta ease into Monday morning. I am not a morning person, nor am I a Monday person, so I guess that's my way of coping!
  9:15am DumbSchmuck:

Morning java on top of a haze is a fine way
  9:16am postmanpaul (":

mornin annie, where's your neck of the woods these days?
  9:17am Liz B.:

Postmanpaul, Dead Bees is a great label that's been adding songs to the Free Music Archive... recommended!
  9:22am postmanpaul (":

thanks for the recommendation, liz. and ye olde english spelling bee, they related in any way?!
  9:25am Liz B.:

No relation to the bee labels, just a thing I guess. Oh weird, I saw a Turkish film last week and bees were sort of a peripheral part of the plot... maybe something is going on with my subconscious today. THINK BEES, PEOPLE!!
  9:28am Parq:

Around our house, when you're talking bees, you're talking this Eddie Izzard bit.
  9:28am Azam:

Busy bee...

  9:30am Parq:

Wait, use this.
  9:33am still b/p:

A friend attended a Fool Party on Saturday in a full bee outfit. With a flowered staff and a top hat. Bees got those, right?
  9:41am Swami:

Liking this Soft Circle. Kinda calls XTC to mind.
  9:42am postmanpaul (":

@ Parq thanks for that, one i missed! eddie rules here.
  9:45am tim:

J'adore la glace au citron!
  9:48am domenic:

Yeah! Free Music Archive
Yeah! Liz!
  9:54am postmanpaul (":

Liz, i replied to your 'we know you're out there, where you been hiding during.....?!' email. all is explained. enjoying the tunes very much!
  9:55am Liz B.:

Cool deal, thanks Paul! I'll write back to you later today hopefully.
  10:10am Ben:

Liz, just want you to know I pledged -- the blast e-mail was the inspiration. Please wait until next year to send another. Always and always, thanks for the show.
  10:11am Liz B.:

Right on, thanks a ton, Ben! Awesome!
  10:17am Parq:

Ah, that late-70s-early-80s post punk sound -- the droning bass, the driving backbeat. Still my favorite kind of rock & roll.
  10:28am dc pat:

crap Parq, you just killed my whole day. I didn't know about Eddie Izzard. He's killing me over here..
  10:29am Richard from Venezuela:

Good morning to all.
  10:30am Carmichael:

Good morning Liz and fellow people. Eddie Izzard is also one of my favorites. Intelligent, quick-witted and a bit bizarre.
  10:32am Liz B.:

Hi Carmichael and Richard, welcome!
  10:35am Lucas:

HI LIZ, happy to hear your show today!
  10:43am Liz B.:

Hey Lucas, good to see you here as well! Anyone catch any live music this past weekend? I saw Hackamore Brick (feat John Allen and Evan "Funk" Davies) and Lame Drivers... great show!
  10:47am glenn:

as a matter of fact, i saw wire friday night.
  10:48am Lucas:

No shows for me this weekend :(
  10:49am Sean:

I'm seeing The Residents this Wednesday. I think it'll be a good week.
  10:49am Lucas:

But last week I saw Oso el roto and did help him to play one song :) !!!
  10:49am Parq:

Liz, had the pleasure of seeing two free live music events as part of the New School's "Noir" fest. In the afternooon, saw Marc Mulcahey leading a quartet on a wonderfully quirky Ben Katchor musical about one of his classic characters, an upper east sider obsessed with coat checkroom.
  10:51am Parq:

Went home to feed the dogs and came back to catch Marc Ribot leading a nine-piece band through famous movie scores and the Lounge Lizards' back catalog.
Wasn't able to make to it Evan's gig. I'm sure he killed.
  10:52am Azam:

No music last weekend, but will be seeing Mulatu Astatke in May...can't wait.
  10:52am DumbSchmuck:

I caught the Muckety Monks at Bazuto, Manolo Smith did a late set. It was a Saturday to remember. Flashy lights and jilted bodies! mmm.
  10:53am BSI:

Eugene Chadbourne & Tatsuya Nakatani here in DC friday........ it was wacky....
  10:53am BSI:

well technically MD, but, eh....
  10:55am glenn:

you know those polls in guitar player magazine et. al. of the 100 top guitarists? the ones that never put richard thompson at the top where he belongs? how come marc ribot is never mentioned? he's fantastic.
  10:57am Carmichael:

Glenn, I saw Marc Ribot on publid TV awhile back and he is brilliant. Also agree re: RT. Just saw him two weeks ago, finally playing ELECTRIC guitar. He was good and loud.
  10:57am PlaidSkirt:

I saw 10 soldiers on a field and after the massacre they did an encore even though it was a matinee. I would see that show again. Love Spring! That was my weekend.
  11:00am Parq:

Guys, it was really something to see Ribot do tho old Lizards stuff. I saw the Lizards once, long ago, and watched Arto Lindsey pretty carefully. His playing is completely impulsve, as bash and slash as a rock drummer. Ribot produces the same sounds, but when you watch him, you can see that every note and non-note is completely thoughtful and deliberate. He never makes a sound without having intended to make it. Something else, man.
  11:00am alejandro:

parq are you a new schooler? I am listening to Liz in the New School computer lab as we speak :) The noir festival is awesome...guy maddin!
  11:00am glenn:

my ears are still ringing from wire.
  11:01am glenn:

guy maddin's the third coolest thing to come from winnipeg.
  11:03am Lucas:

Wire are amazing live Glenn. When I saw them I had the impression that the drummer was making mistakes, but at the end it was great
  11:03am Parq:

'Jandro, no, but have been going to classe and events there for decades, *So* wish we could see the Madden, but a good friend is in the Moth story slam at Highline the same night.
  11:05am alejandro:

oh cool! well glad you made it some of the festival
  11:06am glenn:

i've seen them three times over a thirty year time span. mr gotobed plays very simply, but he is a virtual metronome. i think he's a great drummer.
  11:08am glenn:

on the other hand, the drummer for weekend, who opened for wire, was all over the place, and i find it hard to listen to a band with a bad drummer. not the weekend with alison statton and spike either, more's the pity.
  11:11am Lucas:

@Glenn, yeah i like him too, but i had that impression... maybe i'm wrong...
  11:15am glenn:

maybe he had an off. night. playing 2/4 time at 300 beats a minute ain't easy.
  11:17am BSI:

tasty, this sound.
  11:17am dc pat:

BSI: dang, love Chadbourne. Parq: that's the exact impression I get from Ribot from listening to him. I went through a period where I tried to play ever not on purpose like what I thought Ribot was doing instead of my usual "whatever my fingers want to do" method...
  11:18am dc pat:

I mean "everY notE" dammit
  11:20am Lucas:

@Glenn Yes, surely. But I like mistakes too :)
  11:20am glenn:

by the way, if anybody's going to see wire and hasn't purchased red barked tree yet, you get a free four song e.p. of extra tracks if you buy it from the merch booth.
  11:20am BSI:

DCP: I wasn't sure how Chadbourne would mix with Nakatani, but it had magic. EC's tunes would devolve into these extended dynamic jams, very cool. Communication was great between the two.
  11:23am Lucas:

Waw LIz what is this?!? Opera Mort is great!
  11:23am glenn:

see, in my opinion, everybody else in the band can go wherever they want, in terms of rhythm or melody or chords or whatever, but the drummer has got to be dead nuts.
  11:29am Cecile:

morning all. Not chatty, but digging the vibe and tunes.
  11:32am Lucas:

@Glenn: I see your point. It depends on the music you're playing. "Bad musicians" are great too
  11:34am Parq:

Every musician should at least be on the same page as everyone else. Saw Brightback Morning Light a year or two ago, and the leader was unfocused and self-indulgent. Not my kinda sound at all.
  11:35am edinblack:

This is somewhere between Snakefinger and the Legendary Pink Dots...
  11:35am dc pat:

Chadbourne is an excellent improvisationist--it's amazing what he can do with a Dobro.
  11:37am edinblack:

This one's fun!
  11:38am Carmichael:

Are these the guys who do Her Hispanic Majesty's Request?
  11:41am edinblack:

That is, Mexican Institute of Sound is fun!
  11:42am Cecile:

You can have a limited voice and still be a great singer. Witness Hank Williams or Peggy Lee.
  11:43am Parq:

Yeah, dug the Mex Inst too. Great music, great chat, everyone. Must go converse, confer and otherwise hobnob with my brother wage slaves. Onward to lunch -- and Irene.
  11:56am Carmichael:

Liz, thanks for a stellar show as usual.
  11:56am Liz B.:

Thank YOU, Carmichael, as well as everybody else hanging around here today!
  12:03pm maja:

I am so much too late but I loved your show!
  2:40pm S. Barrios:

discovered your program several months ago / and it gives me the good feeling like nothing else. thanks !
