  Fri. 5/18/12 9:33am fred:

That should be a great session!
  Fri. 5/18/12 9:35am Cheri Pi:

Ah she has that sweet voice like Clare Grogan/Altered Images
  Fri. 5/18/12 9:37am northguineahills:

Yeah, I like this Life w/o Bldgs.
  Fri. 5/18/12 9:39am Sandy in Houston:

I like this too. reminds me of mi ami
  Fri. 5/18/12 9:40am Mariano:

What album is Leanover from?!? Can't find it anywhere!
  Fri. 5/18/12 9:41am Mariano:

D'oh! Never mind...
Avatar    Fri. 5/18/12 9:42am Scott:

Also on Any Other City but I think it's a diff version???? Maybe. Any Other City is freaking amazing. Get it----you won't be sorry.
  Fri. 5/18/12 9:45am Mariano:

Thanks Scott! Searching now...
  Fri. 5/18/12 9:46am pgw in mntclr:

is there a version of it on the their live album? that live album is so wonderfully jittery.
Avatar    Fri. 5/18/12 9:48am Scott:

Probably on there, yes. I don't have it in front of me but I would bet.
  Fri. 5/18/12 9:50am max:

I wonder when Bob Dylan's 80s and onward material is gonna get some attention, that song was pretty great. His shitty stuff is probably better than people give it credit for
  Fri. 5/18/12 9:51am northguineahills:

@max: This (or I concur)
Avatar    Fri. 5/18/12 9:52am Scott:

Well, there's always a couple decent songs even on the shitty 80s records for sure!
  Fri. 5/18/12 10:03am northguineahills:

I have an Invisible Circle cassette. This was supra nice as well.
  Fri. 5/18/12 10:06am northguineahills:

In the middle of the Google Image Search for Sue Thompkins, There was a picture of Rammellzee. weird.
  Fri. 5/18/12 10:12am Mariano:

What about the John Butcher the guitarist? I remember in the 80s some people thought he was the second coming of Hendrix.
  Fri. 5/18/12 10:14am Mr Donut:

Then there was Eric Gales.
  Fri. 5/18/12 10:15am Cheri Pi:

I love this song!
  Fri. 5/18/12 10:16am max:

Yeah this is awesome!!
  Fri. 5/18/12 10:19am max:

This too
  Fri. 5/18/12 10:20am northguineahills:

Wow, Medicine. They've been played twice this week. Don't think I've heard them on WFMU before.
  Fri. 5/18/12 10:25am Cheri Pi:

this was described as bacon radio music by the illustrious BSI yesterday...
  Fri. 5/18/12 10:27am jack m.:

hey scott, sounding good! nice way to jump start the weekend.
  Fri. 5/18/12 10:31am Dead Corporate Eyes:

is this some kind of reggae-sampler pack tour?
Avatar    Fri. 5/18/12 10:33am Scott:

Something like that.
  Fri. 5/18/12 10:33am BSI:

"Illustrious," eh? I must bathe more often. Mental note...
  Fri. 5/18/12 10:36am mike tp:

JEHOSEPHAT wasnt that used in a comedy setting great tune
  Fri. 5/18/12 10:37am Nathan:

Nice Scott. I hear Shackleton in the background.. that album has been ruling my world lately.
  Fri. 5/18/12 10:48am Mike East:

Good morning and happy Friday! We all gonna sing the same song...we all gonna jam the same jam.
  Fri. 5/18/12 10:49am BSI:

diggin' the dub.
please proceed.
  Fri. 5/18/12 10:57am max:

wish i had weed
  Fri. 5/18/12 10:58am Mike East:

dub'll do that to you, max.
  Fri. 5/18/12 11:01am Dead Corporate Eyes:

everyone got their Facebook IPO shares? trading is about to commence.
  Fri. 5/18/12 11:02am max:

Too true
  Fri. 5/18/12 11:03am BSI:

Considering all the bankable content I've provided FB, I'll be expecting a hefty dividend check immediately.
  Fri. 5/18/12 11:04am fred:

@DCE: I hear that will cement their trademark on the letter 'f'. I might have to become red then
  Fri. 5/18/12 11:10am fred:

FB has a better homophone in French: fessebouc. Look for images to see what that means. As the best known image involves spanking a billy goat, this might prove popular in Chicago
  Fri. 5/18/12 11:13am Dead Corporate Eyes:

haha, I like the one where the bird is eating goat ass.
  Fri. 5/18/12 11:18am BSI:

Brilliant Niney...
  Fri. 5/18/12 11:22am Marmalade Kitty:

Hi Scott & all!! loving the Dub
Avatar    Fri. 5/18/12 11:23am Scott:

hi!
  Fri. 5/18/12 11:24am fred:

I can't stand reggae, but I really like dub. I've always felt that way, which is puzzling to many
  Fri. 5/18/12 11:27am BSI:

@fred: agreed. I can tolerate reggae at best, whereas King Tubby, Scientist, etc., I can eat all day...
  Fri. 5/18/12 11:32am Mike East:

straight up reggae is more about the words and vocals. dub is more about the sounds. Occupies a different headspace. I like both, but I understand why some might prefer one over the other.
  Fri. 5/18/12 11:35am fred:

The closest I'll get to reggae is Armagideon Time, and even there, despite the vocals I've always felt it was closer to dub than to reggae. If that makes sense
  Fri. 5/18/12 11:37am fred:

Laura Cantrell! Great! She might be the WFMU DJ who most expanded my mind
  Fri. 5/18/12 11:38am clyde stubblefield:

Saw Lee "scratch" @ Gramercy last night... lile changing - he can even make a bad white DJ sound good
Avatar    Fri. 5/18/12 11:38am Scott:

That's high praise, fred!
Avatar    Fri. 5/18/12 11:39am Scott:

Laura's awesome.
  Fri. 5/18/12 11:39am The Log Lady:

Hi Scott! The log has a special message for you today; did you follow it's directive? :-)
  Fri. 5/18/12 11:41am fred:

Well, it's about cultural differences. I'm french, so country was like a joke to me before I heard her show.
Now my countrymen laugh at me when I say I like it. I don't care.
  Fri. 5/18/12 11:42am jaypee:

Hell yes. It's my day off and Scott is just killing it today. Thanks!
  Fri. 5/18/12 11:43am fred:

If that was the message from the log, I think it's a very appropriate Twin Peaks reference
Avatar    Fri. 5/18/12 11:44am Scott:

Thanks Log Lady! I did remember.
  Fri. 5/18/12 11:46am The Log Lady:

Thanks, Scott! Don't mind me, I'm just being extra attentive to the logs this week. Carry on with the excellence!
Avatar    Fri. 5/18/12 11:46am Scott:

:)
  Fri. 5/18/12 11:49am clyde stubblefield:

really - nobody in nYC went to see Dub daddy... shame
  Fri. 5/18/12 11:52am fred:

@clyde: did you go? if so, how was it?
  Fri. 5/18/12 11:53am Daniel:

Too busy seein Cecil Taylor to see Dub Daddy, man.
  Fri. 5/18/12 11:54am clyde stubblefield:

best damn command, stage presence - ever- he still drops it stearn every time- cecil lives in NY - can see him anywhere
  Fri. 5/18/12 11:54am fred:

It's been too long since the last Cecil segment on this show
  Fri. 5/18/12 11:56am BSI:

heard about the Cecil thing yesterday. My kingdom for a matter-transferrance beam. Must've been excellent.
  Fri. 5/18/12 11:57am Daniel:

@fred C'est sure. @BSI It was transcendent. He's playing in Bklyn tomorrow - beg, borrow or steal, cause it'll be worth it!
  Fri. 5/18/12 11:57am fred:

@clyde: and I'm glad to hear a positive review of a Lee "scratch" Perry show. I had heard he was mailing it in at gigs in Europe, that was disturbing
  Fri. 5/18/12 11:58am Nathan:

Thanks Scott!
  Fri. 5/18/12 11:58am ?:

double dub!
  Fri. 5/18/12 11:59am fred:

Great show Scott! Hear you next week
