So epic.

Oh joy! It's 70s prog rock night on Dan's show! My answer to the 15 second question = "Watcher of the Skies" by Genesis. Progging out in Pawtucket, WJ

@all, welcome
  Mon. 4/2/12 9:53pm George of Troy:

Killer set. Unfortunately this track is reminding me that I missed out on VdGG tickets.
  Mon. 4/2/12 9:54pm damien of Troy:

wow. my beloved D Bowie sure ripped these cats off for Diamond Dogs
  Mon. 4/2/12 9:54pm G:

This VdGG album reached #1 on the Italian album charts. Romance language / Catholic countries were prog crazy.

I lived in Brasil in the mid 70s. In Brasil, they still turn out for concerts by proggers who head down there...
  Mon. 4/2/12 9:57pm George of Troy:

I saw them a few years back, and Hammill (and band) still very much have it.
  Mon. 4/2/12 9:58pm G:

Fripp did guest guitar work in places on on this VdGG track.
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:02pm Charisma:

Greenslade. No. That's asking too much.
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:03pm kramrellim:

I think VdGG will be playing NYC. They did the last time they were at Nearfest.
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:04pm Ludwig Slingerland:

Speaking of Gong, just read Bill Bruford's autobiography. Actually very interesting.
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:05pm George of Troy:

@kramrellim: I'm hoping so. They're also playing the Montreal Jazz Festival, but I'm not willing to endure that for a 30 minute set.
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:06pm G:

Bruford was the intellectually sharpest guy in main-sequence Yes, for sure.
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:08pm Topographic:

Still awaiting new 'Flash' record. Here's a track. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6xIEJHRcwVs

Agree G
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:09pm George of Troy:

@ G: You mean it wasn't Wakeman? ;)
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:09pm kramrellim:

I hear ya, George. I know they've added a date at the Sellersville Theatre in PA.
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:10pm G:

Wakeman would be a fun guy to hang with, but his two bios and the facts of his life indicate a certain deficit in prudence :-)
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:11pm George of Troy:

Oh wow, thanks for the head's up, kramrellim! That actually might work out well for me (I've got family nearby).
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:11pm G:

Not two bios, two memoirs... Those Wakeman memoirs are fun, if anyone hasn't read them...
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:15pm Topographic:

Makes me a little sad that Jon Anderson was replaced by Benoit David after Anderson had respiratory failure. But, evidently his duo tour with Wakeman was well-recieved. I suppose it's pathetic to still hope for Yes triumphs at this point ... kind of like waiting for that great new Stones record where Mick and Keith sit down and summon one more great one from the ether. McCartney did it with Chaos and Creation, I thought.
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:17pm seang:

all things must pass
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:17pm Fabio Fan:

Blops! Wow ... what's next ... Frumpy? PFM? Atomic Rooster?
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:18pm kramrellim:

Evan Funk Davies played some Atomic Rooster last week.
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:19pm joe:

I thought McCartney's Memory Almost Full was a great album.
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:19pm Fabio Fan:

@Kram Ahh, yes. Vincent Crane! Ex-Crazy World of Arthur Brown.
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:20pm joe:

Evening Mr. Bodah
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:20pm Fabio Fan:

Joe, are you an Emmitt Rhodes fan?
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:22pm G:

I can tell you what happened there, Topo. (I know people who know people in the band.) Jon had respiratory problems, likely exacerbated by frequent marijuana use. He also didn't want to tour as much as they did. They hired a touring band singer (who sounded pretty good, actually), but when Anderson's health was better and he wanted back in, they put him off due to "existing commitments". -- Why? Because the keyboard and vocialist slots have been farmed out to hired hands who work for far less than a full member would get, leaving a larger remaining income for the main members to divvy up. Simple as that. Retirement fund for Squire, Howe, and White.

I got Fly from Here (2011) when the used copies started showing up for 5 bucks on the web. It's Drama II, and not bad as such. It ain't 70s Yes, but I think there is no chance of that returning, just due to their very different energy levels at their age. Honestly, in concert they are a little tough to look at, and you can understand why they hired some younger-looking hired guns. In Brasil they've called Howe "Caveira" (Skull) since the 90s, and let's not even talk about Squire.
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:23pm damien:

some months ago, Jim Thirlwell did a Do or DIY show, and he played "Jusqu'a ce que la Force de t'aimer me manque " by Ms. Ribeiro. Blew my mind, man.
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:25pm Topographic:

@G Thanks for the insider info. I think Wakeman's son Oliver was playing with Yes for a while. He even played a Starcastle reunion gig!
I think Close to the Edge was Yes' zenith.
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:28pm Scuttle:

This is amazing!
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:28pm joe:

@Fabio Fan not familier. Should I be?
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:29pm kramrellim:

I understand Benoit's gone now too, replaced with someone else.
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:30pm G:

Yes, Oliver was a hired hand, but when Squire and Howe decided to go back with the Buggles (so to speak) in order to use leftover Buggles material from c. 1980 to make a new album, Oliver was redundant and was dismissed. Rick's doctors told him not to go on long tours. He's has had several heart attacks, starting in his 20s, and who knows what else. So Oliver stepped in back at that point.
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:30pm Fabio Fan:

@Joe Well, many say Emmitt Rhodes sounded like McCartney and I would concur. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3CvzawbXLS8
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:32pm G:

Yes, Kram -- early this year Benoit had "respiratory problems" and was 'temporarily' replaced. But then Benoit read in an interview with Squire that it was permanent.
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:32pm Topographic:

Starcastle with Oliver Wakeman ... in case you couldn't stand not knowing what it sounds like.
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:33pm Topographic:

Jeez ... Yes smoking a lot of gage or what? It's like Yes-Lung or something.
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:34pm seang:

interesting Emmit Rhodes interview on Michael Shelley's show
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:34pm Topographic:

By the way, Mr. Bodah. This is one helluva show!
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:34pm G:

Someone made a cartoon video recently of Squire going into a company to have a robot vocalist built. Pretty funny.
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:36pm damien:

this is Julian COpe
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:38pm Fabio Fan:

@G Gotta find that Squire vid! Sounds hilarious.
@Seang - Thanks for the Shelley tip! Rhodes was originally with The Merry-Go-Round. Born in Decatur, IL, in case you were wondering.
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:40pm joe:

Thanks Fabio Fan I like what I heard I will have to dig a bit deeper. He seems to almost be a link between McCartney and the Gibb Brothers.
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:40pm slugluv1313:

yes, excellent show! especially loving this Julian Cope -- THANK YOU, Mr. Dan Bodah!
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:41pm Fabio Fan:

@Joe .... Good analysis. I think you nailed it.
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:42pm G:

@FF: I got the link on a Yes mailing list early this year, not sure how easy it would be to find the link at this point. The vid was on YT, of course. I recall that by late in the video Squire was ordering a robo-keyboardist while he was at it. Amortize the cost of the robot(s) over a concert tour or two, and meanwhile no more hired gun issues or "respiratory problems".
Avatar Mon. 4/2/12 10:45pm Dan B:

You guys aren't suggesting that I play "Owner of a Lonely Heart," are you? Because I might could be able to do something with that...
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:46pm joe:

Didn't know Howe had anything to do with Buggles but i Yes's family tree is very convaluted. Really for me outside of White Bicycle and Rick Wakeman's work on Sabbath Bloody Sabbath I really can't say they have really ever had anything to offer me. Jon Anderson's voice just does not a agree with me.
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:46pm seang:

or some GTR
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:46pm Destroit:

Current 93, thanks for this.
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:46pm G:

Most of the 70s Yesheads love seeing Owner being MESSED WITH lol
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:47pm joe:

Although I will admit I would love to see what Dan could do with Owner of Lonely Heart :)
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:47pm G:

"93" is am Aleister Crowley reference, btw...
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:48pm Topographic:

@G Too funny!

@Joe Noooo '80's Yes. Now, Siberian Khatru on the other hand could win you permanent adoration from thousands.
Avatar Mon. 4/2/12 10:48pm Dan B:

I think it's worth doing a little more than an on-the-fly version for that one...maybe I'll prep it for next week.
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:49pm G:

There ya go!
Avatar Mon. 4/2/12 10:49pm Dan B:

Yes @G, the whole early era of Current 93 can basically be read as an extended Crowley reference
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:49pm Topographic:

I mean ... Dan .... I am confused. All Yes next week Dan? Is that what I am to understand?
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:49pm joe:

@DAn I'm sure you can have a lot of fun with that keyboard based faux horn blast in the song.
Avatar Mon. 4/2/12 10:50pm Dan B:

YES -- no. Not all yes. Yes, though, Yes.
Avatar Mon. 4/2/12 10:50pm Dan B:

I hope that clears things up
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:51pm Topographic:

Trevor Rabin .... cringe. I mean, sure he could shred, but he's no Peter Banks, and howe!
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:52pm joe:

Scott did play the mix of all four sides of Tales from Topographic Oceans the other day and that did have some enjoyable moments
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:52pm G:

The girls loved those tight black leather pants back in 84, though :-)

Rabin's had great career doing movie music the last 15-20 years, I suppose people know.
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:53pm E:

  Mon. 4/2/12 10:54pm G:

Tx for the Comus -- I'd only ever heard of them till now, never actually *heard* them!
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:54pm Topographic:

I know Crimson purists feel that band was superior to Yes, but aside from 'Red' it never really sailed for me, not did the Belew-era stuff. The track, Red, however, is an all-time favorite.
Avatar Mon. 4/2/12 10:56pm Dan B:

I'm quite partial to Discipline, speaking of King Crimson
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:57pm seang:

It can happen
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:58pm Topographic:

Belew just skated too close to David Byrne country for me. But what do I know? Must run. See you all. I'll be listening Dan. Excited about the all-Yes show next week!
  Mon. 4/2/12 10:58pm G:

I know what you mean, Topo, but Crim was not trying to have the same level of pop and rock in their music that Yes was going for. They were more "thinking" music. Larks Tongue in Aspic (playing off of Vaughn Williams' great The Lark Ascending) is really their masterpiece prior to Belew.
  Mon. 4/2/12 11:00pm Topographic:

Enjoyed your astute observations G. Will reconsider Lark's Tongue right after I listen to Tormato for the 1007th time. We didn't even discuss Moraz!!!!
  Mon. 4/2/12 11:00pm seang:

yeah Discipline rules, Thela Hun Ginjeet
  Mon. 4/2/12 11:01pm G:

Great album, yes, seang
  Mon. 4/2/12 11:02pm Greg Lake:

Back away from the Stick, Tony.
  Mon. 4/2/12 11:03pm G:

Tormato is underrated, though the cheese factor was rising as Yes tried to please the suits who were saying their sales were dropping as punk rose. Notice the leather the group are wearing on the cover :-) Punk Yes!!!! lmao
  Mon. 4/2/12 11:03pm joe:

For me it jumps from Starless until Vrooom except for some tracks in there the stuff in between those releases doesn't do it for me.
  Mon. 4/2/12 11:03pm seang:

is that you, Clay?
  Mon. 4/2/12 11:05pm G:

oh, yeah, could there be an anono-clay progger on the board? he fessed up to pseudonymous posting on his board recently...
  Mon. 4/2/12 11:11pm G:

Promised to call someone in Cali, bbiab...

This Rosmini track really requires a viewing of the short film that it's the soundtrack for -- check it out, it's amazing. Film by Carroll Ballard.

this is amazing music. thank you, dB

  Mon. 4/2/12 11:46pm DJextracrispy:

@DanB, will indeed try. (I keep thinking your show is called Airborne Toxic Event, as was selfsame Event in don delillo's White Noise.)
Avatar Mon. 4/2/12 11:49pm Dan B:

@DJe-c, yeah, I took the "toxic" out to relieve the name of the suggestion of negativity. The idea is that, hopefully, something will actually *happen* on the air during the show...or at least that's the aspiration!
  Mon. 4/2/12 11:51pm seang:

thanks for the tunes!
  Tue. 4/3/12 12:00am DJextracrispy:

@DanB, makes sense abt the toxic part.

well, i'm sure glad that edumastication is paying off
  Wed. 4/18/12 4:32pm Marie:
