Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:08am Liz B.:

Hi everyone, just couldn't resist this long jam... perfect for the am!
  9:11am pierre:

Bonjour bonjour Liz !
Bonjour listeners !

Greetings everyone.
Avatar 9:17am BW:

good morning
  9:18am tinaun:

wfmu has the best covers
  9:19am pierre:

@BW, how are you ? Did you go to the restaurant i've adviced you to go to last you were in Paris ?
  9:20am eric:

officially overplayed.
  9:22am pierre:

sounds like she says : "all with Cecile…"
  9:26am Cecile:

you rang?
  9:27am pierre:

  9:33am dc pat:

man, for some reason during my feverish sleep last night, I was humming All With Cecile...that and various Van Halen songs which makes me want to kill David Lee Roth right now.
  9:36am Cecile:

  9:39am trolly mctrollerson:

howww do you dance to this? like a jellyfish?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:41am Liz B.:

Perfect, Trolly, I think you've got it!
  9:45am Cecile:

or an octopus.
Avatar 9:46am BW:

Pierre - the line was long but I sooooo regret not going. next visit we go together!
  9:48am BSI:

diggy squeaky!
  9:52am trolly mctrollerson:

Yip - I've found the dance moves:

  9:52am pierre:

@BW : Im sorry i should i've warned you about that line. I don't why i didn't remember that.
But that's a perfect plan ! First, we enjoy a beer, next it's going to be parisian brasserie.
  9:57am Cecile:

I know they only got minimal airplay here, but just found out that 2i founder Dan Kaniess died over the weekend. If you're from the TC area, hopefully I'll have more details
  9:59am BSI:

  10:13am joe:

I was tonight was the night I tried to get tickets for :)
Avatar 10:14am BW:

hey now... sometimes pushy is a good thing!
  10:15am joe:

Oh by the way 'ello folks
  10:16am BDR:

Ian MacKaye is 50 today. Hint.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:17am Liz B.:

Thanks BW! Joe, I think you were wise to attempt to get tix for tonight... "The Mix" is like a greatest hits album, so I think we'll be in luck.
  10:18am Cecile:

I'm older than IAN. God. (not by much, though.)
  10:21am BDR:

Been seeing his shows since Teen Idols on through. One benefit of growing up in DC.
  10:22am joe:

Yup that's exactly why I went for it. I think this is the perfect night unless you have special place in your heart for any of their specific albums. I hope it all turns out be worth the hype for you and BW and it's a nice time
  10:27am joe:

Already looking up Camera and Cave on FMA. Wow good stuff.
  10:28am dc pat:

"Teen Idles"
  10:29am BSI:

Having grown up in DC, it's a bit like treason to admit, never dug Fugazi. That first Minor Threat 12" is a perfect release & belongs up there with the greats forever, but that other band just seemed too precious.
  10:30am BSI:

Part of that might be that they were playing everywhere in the early days, & heard the 1st album's material millions of times while waiting for other acts on the bill, etc...
  10:31am dc pat:

Hey Liz B, play some Teen Idles for Ian's b-day.

I liked Fugazi, I think 13 Songs is near perfect. Great live shows.
  10:32am dc pat:

..but I missed the hardcore days for the most part...growing up in Alabama, PA.
  10:33am dc pat:

Definitely seems like Fugazi was playing everywhere, all the time...can't tell you how many times we said, "Ah, we'll see them next time. Let's go drink."
  10:34am knstr:

This is so nice!
  10:34am knstr:

This is so nice!
  10:34am BSI:

DC's best acts during the late '80s for me were Sarcastic Orgasm, Beefeater, Christ on a Crutch... It was a golden age, before the local sound got too whiny for my taste.
  10:35am Cecile:

same here BSI, for different reasons.

For me it was the butthole surfers, they lived in Detroit for 6 months and headlined at the Graystone at least once a month. Still don't dig them, but I tell people that I've seen them more times than bands I like.
  10:35am joe:

@BSI it took me until after the "hiatus" to really actually enjoy Fugazi. I can totally understand have a bit of a problem getting on that wagon
  10:35am Chris from DC:

Missed a lot of that while I was away at school. We went to see Minor Threat once, but my friends wanted to leave after Government Issue, so I never got to see Minor Threat. That last Fort Reno show by Fugazi was pretty killer. Big second on those "other" 80s bands. Black Market Baby ruled too.
  10:36am Cecile:

Beefeater rubbed me the wrong way the one time I saw them. I think I would like them better now.
What about Grand Mal? They were pretty fierce from what I heard.
  10:37am Cecile:

I loved BMB. Never saw 'em.
Loved Scream.
Saw Rites of Spring - really, really intense. Taey were pretty unforgettable.
  10:37am pierre:

…i never had the chance to see any of these bands live… sad face sad face… France, so late on good hardcore.
  10:37am BSI:

Never caught Grand Mal. Tiny Desk Unit were a treasure. 9353 as well... and rumor has it THEY ain't dead yet!
  10:38am joe:

I was alway particial to Lungfish is that much later not really sure of the time lines
  10:38am dc pat:

oh, man. Buttholes--that's a whole other story....

I liked Rites of Spring but that's probably getting into the whiny area BSI mentioned...
  10:38am Cecile:

aha, 9353, I remember them.
  10:39am BSI:

If you dug Lungfish, you needed to catch REPULSION FOR REPTILES. Similar concept (in theory), poetic ranting over angular instrumental jams. But much much much much more crucially awesome.
  10:39am dc pat:

9353, nothing like them. I hear they're finishing up a new album.
  10:41am Chris from DC:

The Ramones and Black Black Market Baby remains one of the best shows I've ever seen.
  10:41am joe:

Thanks BSI will do
  10:41am BDR:

Still a blast to go to Fort Reno for summer shows.
  10:42am BDR:

  10:43am dc pat:

it's funny, Fort Reno is a place to take the kids now.
  10:44am BSI:

ah, and in the days when Slumberland label was still an embryo, there was Big Jesus Trash Can (later WHORL), a massive favorite. If memory serves, they shared a bill at DC Space with BOMB and BORBETOMAGUS that left me insane for days...
  10:44am BSI:

that could be an inaccurate memory, of course.
so many shows...
  10:50am joe:

Liz giving Jason a run for his money in the FMA
  11:02am BSI:

aah, nice.
  11:02am Jeff:

Meatball Machine was upsetting the dog.
  11:02am dc pat:

  11:03am dc pat:

Thanks Liz. What ever happened to that singer? Can't remember his name. Guitar player lives a block away from me in the house he grew up in.
  11:05am zoot:

I know this is off-topic, but, for all my fellow DC folk: Morton Subotnick will be talking and performing Silver Apples of the Moon at Clarice Smith on Wednesday. It's free!
  11:12am BSI:

dang, zoot.
no way I can get over there on weds., but sounds like a blast.

NYC sewage fun:
  11:19am Cheri Pi:

just back from the eye doctor-dilated pupils!
  11:20am dc pat:

Cheri, you get to wear sunglasses inside all day.
  11:21am Chris from DC:

Whoa, new Mad Scene?
  11:22am Cheri Pi:

Driving was weird.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:23am Liz B.:

Yes, new Mad Scene! Bummer about the pupil, Cheri!
  11:41am joe:

Did anybody go to the Krautwerk show? Wondering how that was as it was also sold out before I got tickets :)
  11:42am joe:

@Cheri that is one of the craziest things I have ever had done. I had to wear the senior folk Terminator glasses for a little bit after they did it.
  11:43am Ken From Hyde Park:

Whenever I get the dilation treatment, I tell them my wife is picking me up and then I drive off.
  11:57am dc pat:

jeeze, I'm a bad enough driver as it is. Don't need dialation...or cell phones or booze...
  11:58am Cheri Pi:

What's important is I found WFMU on the internets as soon as I got back from my miracle drive
  12:01pm Van in DC:

hi / bye Liz!
  12:29pm Lesley:

Hi Liz, I always listen to your shows on demand via the fantastic wfmu app. But with this week's show (april 16th), there is a problem with the markers between the songs.

I think there are markers too manu in the beginning
  9:54am Barry Hobby:

So nowIi know you read this stuff, I'll comment. In Portland Oregon the storm drains are linked to the sewer drains. Any time it rains intensely (and that never happens in the NW) raw sewage is dumped into the confluence of the Willamette and the Columbia at this big park - Delta Park. It literally smells like shit on any rainy day.
