I never miscue a record. I am punctual, well-prepared, and dislike clutter. Outgoing and helpful, I'm always appropriately dressed. I do not behave erratically and have excellent penmanship. My CD's never skip, and I am in good health. I like all the notes, in any order.

Listener comments!

  12:12pm Loren:

Dude! Bryce! Bring it!
  12:13pm Chinchilla:

wait... has this all been Smegma? Was there a track before this but after Scott's last Bardo track? Anyhoo lookin forward to today's set!!
  12:14pm Loren:

You've got a white sphincter? or - your going to like Smegma?
  12:14pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I thought the Bardo blended between shows and this was the first song of official Bryce-dom
  12:15pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

Loren, are they mutually exclusive?
  12:17pm bryce:


yeah, smegma started around 12:10...
  12:17pm Loren:

of course not, I think.
  12:23pm pierre lacroix:

  12:24pm Loren:

Bryce, is that you?

no... it is BSI
  12:24pm BSI:

Many thanks, boss. I'm gonna need a bath after this.
  12:25pm Cecile:

  12:25pm bryce:

  12:26pm Mike East:

Very nice, Mr. Infant.
  12:28pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

  12:29pm Caryn:

It's all smegma, sausages and queens so far... It's like drag queen stand-up night over here.
  12:30pm Caryn:

Also, Cecile & DCE, answered your last questions on Scott's comments board right as the show ended, so don't know if you stuck around long enough to see it?
  12:30pm Marmalade Kitty:

Great BSI!!!
  12:31pm Cecile:

aw, cool, they sang in Sami. I have some records of Wimme - that's how I first learned about the Sami singing style. There are actually some people who are trying to bring back joiking in Upper michigan.
  12:32pm Marmalade Kitty:

Happy new year Bryce!!
  12:34pm Caryn:

Joiking was big for a couple of years in the late 90s/early 2000s. Big joiking acts and chart-topping records... Then the trend went away. Of course you still hear it, but mostly in the folk circles and of course in Sami society.
  12:36pm bryce:

hey, marmalade kitty!
  12:36pm Cecile:

It's amazing how much it sounds like the Native American chants of the Upper Midwest. Eerie.

Hey, Bryce, there is a song I think called Laughing Song by Adrian Belew from his Desire Caught By The Tail, a lovely and grating record... there's plenty of maniacal laughing on it.
  12:38pm BSI:

Thanks KItty & Co.!
This Karuna Khyal thing is stewing the gray matter nicely.
  12:39pm breughelesque:

Oh man, I'm trying to negotiate with a friend on buying his copy of this Karuna Khayal rec. It's killer through and through.
  12:43pm bryce:

hey, cecile! wow, haven't heard that record in forever.

breughelesque, he has the actual record??
  12:43pm Caryn:

Cecile, if you like that & Korpiklaani, you might enjoy a band called Värttinä. Their music is rooted in Carelian women's "poem singing". Very cool stuff. I personally prefer the early records (until "Kokko" in 1996), but the later, more experimental stuff is interesting too.
  12:44pm Loren:

Maru Sankaku Shikaku
  12:45pm Cecile:

I know of Varttina, never really took the time to listen to them.
  12:47pm Caryn:

If you look them up, Cecile, I'd recommend albums 3-5 (Oi Dai, Seleniko & Aitara).
  12:48pm Cecile:

Thanks, Caryn.
  12:49pm breughelesque:

yep, bryce. he does! he's an uber-collector.
  12:50pm Fuzzy:

Karuna Khyal:

Worked for me!
  12:52pm Loren:

Karuna Khyal Alomoni 1985 out the door for 225 bucks!!
  12:53pm Caryn:

Funnily enough, Värttinä also co-wrote (with A.R. Rahman) the music for the "Lord of the Rings" musical that was staged in Toronto in the mid-2000s. Have no clue what that music is like, but considering the Finnish roots of much of Tolkien's work, it seemed appropriate.
  12:53pm avant reguard aka pitch n putt glitch and guts:

amazing show as always. thx for the outer out there under outer - oh trapped in the metaphoric symbolist language nightmare- flare. thx for the sounds. onwards and upwards aahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
  12:53pm kme in chi:

echoes of Acid Mothers Temple here..
  12:54pm kme in chi:

(in the Marble Sheep Meats, not the Sami conversation)
  12:55pm Caryn:

Might have a point there, kme in chi.
  12:55pm Looms:

Stunning! :) Whose party is this?!
  12:58pm breughelesque:

Loren-- that's about my price range for that LP. hoping he'll come down a bit.
  1:00pm Loren:

I was just on discogs... surprised the Phoenix reissue is long gone.
  1:00pm Loren:

meeting... don't stop playing music, okay?
  1:01pm bryce:

i'll see what i can do........
  1:03pm still b/p:

It's not everyday there's smegma and phlegm in the lunch hour.
  1:05pm bryce:

i'm trying to find sebum
  1:06pm breughelesque:

Ha, Loren. all the good shit on discogs is sold from from the EU.
  1:10pm BSI:

Brilliant. Love VDO like a very dirty friend that nobody else can see...but everyone knows it's there...
  1:11pm Eartha Kitt:

C'est sebum.
  1:13pm Cheri Pi:

Black Pus
  1:15pm Caryn:

Oh boy, the smegma, sausages and queens have been joined of late by phlegm, "fertility dairy" and the vas deferens... Is this a theme show, Bryce?
  1:15pm Cecile:

Sort of like a smutty Harvey, BSI?
  1:17pm bryce:

something's in the air
  1:18pm BSI:

The best Harveys often are....
  1:18pm Caryn:

Well, let's hope that something is not smegma... Or phlegm for that matter.
  1:19pm BSI:

...who let that sticky pooka in here?
  1:20pm Cheri Pi:

yeah, who let Santorum in here??
  1:23pm Caryn:

Santorum? Where? Run for the hills!
  1:23pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

apparently, Santorum happens.
  1:25pm jonathan:

yeah dan savage!!!!
  1:25pm Cheri Pi:

I need a shower...
  1:26pm Caryn:

Hate to be a stickler, Bryce, but it's The Sperm, not just Sperm.
  1:27pm BSI:

Still, it's been a very.... fluid..... set, so far...
  1:27pm still b/p:

Free-flow radio.
  1:28pm Marmalade Kitty:

Did the comic "Vic Reeves Big Night Out" ever make it to US shores?
  1:32pm Caryn:

Actually, Bryce, ignore me being a stickler. Looking back over the Sperm discography, they've occasionally used the The, and occasionally gone without. So, never mind!
  1:32pm bryce:

  1:34pm Caryn:

And for those who want to know, the Sperm track's title translated is simply "ear clinic Hesperia", while the Kurenniemi track is "sounds of an electronic instrument #1"
  1:35pm mstr po:

i ve occasionally used the the ,,, too
  1:35pm Caryn:

Hah, wondered whether you'd get to the dance of the anthropoids, Bryce!
  1:35pm Droll:

The "The" prefix has always been a plague on bands. I loved when British announcers would say "The Cream" or "The Led Zeppelin". Why not also call Matt Johnson's band "The The The"?
  1:37pm Marmalade Kitty:

Crazy off the wall abstract; early 90's uk show with Vic & Bob.

Hope you can watch 4od in us & everywhere!?!
  1:38pm Caryn:

Yeah, but sometimes the prefix can be helpful. For instance, the Finnish band Rasmus went without the prefix when they sang in Finnish, but used the prefix when singing in English. So it's easy to tell by just looking at the band's name on the record sleeve or concert poster, which language they're gonna be singing in.
  1:39pm Caryn:

Never watched "Big Night Out" but was a big fan of "Shooting Stars". I have seen some bits of "Big Night Out", but never a whole episode. Maybe should check it out...
  1:41pm Cecile:

caffeine - that's what Bufferin had.
  1:44pm mstr po:

new band name : The The The
  1:50pm Marmalade Kitty:

the 90's are as far off now, as the 60's were when I was growing up! =)oldie
  1:52pm βrian:

I hear the code; I write the code.
  1:54pm Szymczak:

I like this playlist, can I marry it?
  1:55pm bryce:

  1:57pm Szymczak:

Black Berry Sorbet!
  1:57pm Caryn:

Well, at least we've said goodbye to bodily fluids for now. Good thing too, or I might've broken out the lavatory graffiti Byron is supposed to have written.
  1:58pm nic:
