Hi Tony,

Waaaay early, but that means I'm ready to rock. Or chill. Or something.

Greetings Tony and everyone,
so sad to read of the death of Kevin Ayers, one of the superstars of the 70s underground scene and founding member of Soft Machine, a foundation stone of all psychedelic and progressive, experimental and Jazz rock that was built on it.
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 12:09pm Tony Coulter:

Greetings, Sir LP! Yes, I was very sad to hear about Ayers too. One of the greats....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/26/13 12:09pm Uncle Michael:

This. Is. Awesome.
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 12:10pm SIR LANCELOT PRATT:

not heard of MACHIAVEL before, but sound British and heavily Genesis and early Supertramp influenced?
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 12:10pm Tony Coulter:

Heya, Uncle Mikey! Glad you like!

@ Sir LP: They're Belgian -- and you're spot-on with the influences.

goes nicely to an old Dawn label comp that I just finished listening to before the show began.
Fruup, Jonesy, Stray etc.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/26/13 12:16pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Man, it seems like I get cornered into making Grobschnitt references on the FMU board at least once a day, but this Tai Phong track (the instrumental bits) does bear a vibe like early GS... a good thing, surely...
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 12:16pm Tony Coulter:

I can see it following Fruupp, yes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/26/13 12:17pm Uncle Michael:

@SLP...film's a bit older than that, I'm afraid. I actually really liked Bruge.
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 12:17pm Tony Coulter:

Grobschnitt is a band I don't really know -- though I do have a bunch of the Eroc solo things.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/26/13 12:19pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Grobschnitt is a minefield: the '80s era stuff I can't dig. But the early records are solid. I love the Eroc & Eroc 2 records for their sheer unpretentious fun...
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 12:20pm SIR LANCELOT PRATT:

Yeh Rev.
Circle had Watcher in the skies written all over this.
This next track must be Israeli 70s rock band, as I recognise the modern hebrew lyrics about watching the stars and seeing the King and Queen.
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 12:21pm Tony Coulter:

Yes, Poopik is an Israeli singer -- backed here by the Churchill's.
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 12:23pm SIR LANCELOT PRATT:

Morning to you Tony; afternoon to most of my fellow listeners
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 12:26pm SIR LANCELOT PRATT:

Did the Nuge have a bit of a reputation of being republican arse licking, money loving, Vietnam supporting hair brain guitarist?
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 12:26pm Tony Coulter:

I wonder: Would Nugent have called himself a conservative back in '69? Probably not, I'd guess.
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 12:26pm Tony Coulter:

Morning, Michael!
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 12:27pm Tony Coulter:

This Tueurs track is, of course, a Hendrix cover

He's been a right winger forever. He was always anti-drug and has always denied Journey to the Center of Your Mind was a drug song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/26/13 12:28pm Carmichael:

OK, back again from earning a living. Speaking of Israeli prog, check out my avatar. Found it out of the blue on the Google machine.
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 12:29pm SIR LANCELOT PRATT:

The Isleys have a great version of Machine Gun from the early 70s!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/26/13 12:31pm Rich in Washington:

That was a cool cover.

Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 12:31pm Tony Coulter:

Hey Rich!
  Tue. 2/26/13 12:31pm MrFab:

That Hendrix cover was hysterical. Loves me some devolved "classic rock" covers. (Speaking of which, I saw The Residents last night.)
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 12:32pm Tony Coulter:

@ MrFab: How were they? They played 5 minutes from me over the weekend, but I didn't go.
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 12:33pm SIR LANCELOT PRATT:

speaking of Hendrix's machine Gun, once had the DVD of the Band of Gypsies live gig at the fillmore east.
Unfortunately the film went Black and white inot the second track - does anyone know why?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/26/13 12:33pm Uncle Michael:

Your blotter wore off.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/26/13 12:35pm Rich in Washington:

I got to see them Friday night. Packed house, despite most people's grumblings about the price-tag.
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 12:35pm SIR LANCELOT PRATT:

no - UM - had enough to see it through, but always guessed that there was live tv coverage and that part of the filming had to be in black and white as most of tvs were not color in 1970?
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 12:37pm SIR LANCELOT PRATT:

as this track started had the nasty feeling that you were playing Sad Cafe, now convinced this is not the case but some great art damaged alternative rock.
  Tue. 2/26/13 12:37pm MrFab:

Sir Lance, I believe that would be due to a lack of light, a condition of primitive video. it need lots of light.

The Residents were very entertaining, as weird and surreal as you would expect - no more eyeballs head, tho. The Singing Resident (now calling himself "Randy") spent much of the show in between-song monlogues that were quite funny at times, giving a history of the band that mixed facts with their usual mythologizing.
Mucially, it was very stripped down - perhaps a bit too much so.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/26/13 12:40pm Carmichael:

Hey Tony, just for accuracy's sake that Machine Gun track was 1977.
  Tue. 2/26/13 12:40pm MrFab:

(I meant 'Musically', not Mucially.)
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 12:40pm Tony Coulter:

Thanks, Fab. I'm not a fan of their more recent material (as in the last 20+ years!), but figured they might still be fun live. Should have gone.
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 12:40pm SIR LANCELOT PRATT:

this Sui Generis is fantastic!
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 12:41pm Tony Coulter:

@ Mr Fab: At least you didn't write "mucusly."
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 12:42pm Tony Coulter:

Thanks, Carmichael! Was too lazy to scour the notes.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/26/13 12:43pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

I fell off the Residents wagon at the elvis record (king & i) .. completely love the early primitivist stuff though.
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 12:44pm Tony Coulter:

@ Sir LP: Sui Generis *are* a great band. They were from Argentina, as were Bubu (on now).
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 12:45pm Tony Coulter:

@ Rev. Turnip: I'm a mega-fan of the early Residents. "Santa Dog" and "Meet the..." are tops for me.
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 12:45pm SIR LANCELOT PRATT:

did'nt realise there was such a great fusion prog, Jazz Rock scene there!
  Tue. 2/26/13 12:46pm Susan:

Great show today, Tony! You're making a very difficult day at work for me fly. Only a half hour of sleep last night but this show is like medicine. Thanks!
  Tue. 2/26/13 12:46pm MrFab:

Well, as it was a 40th anniversary show, they did play a lot of oldies, even their first record "Santa Dog." And a Snakefinger song 'The Man in the Dark Sedan", in an unexpectedly moving, sincere tribute.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/26/13 12:47pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

First residents I ever heard was Eskimo, so that one's got my heart. But "meet the.." and "not available" are infinite classics. Isn't that "randy" guy the only founding member left? Or did I hear that somewhere...
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 12:47pm Tony Coulter:

Heya Susan! Great to see you here! Get some sleep tonight....
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 12:49pm Tony Coulter:

@ Rev. Turnip: At one point they were planning to train their kids to be their replacements, so that the Residents could live on in perpetuity. Don't know if that ever came to pass.
  Tue. 2/26/13 12:50pm Susan:

Haha! Thanks, Tony. I will probably recuperate once darkness sets in and do the same thing all over again. I'm a hopeless nightowl!
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 12:53pm SIR LANCELOT PRATT:

for your information Poopik comes from the yiddish word Pupik and can mean:-

belly button
chicken stomach.

It is a little chicken stomach commonly used in Jewish Cuisine in chicken soup.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/26/13 12:55pm Rich in Washington:

@Rev Turnip: I think there are only two original Rez left. The one who's now Randy and one that I am quite sure doesn't partake in any touring/performance stuff. Pretty sure my friend and I spotted the two other musicians out of 'uniform' and assisting with break-down after the show. They're quite young.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/26/13 12:57pm Rich in Washington:

I have heard that one of the Residents' early defectors went on to be in Freshly Wrapped Candies. It sounds plausible, to my ears.
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 12:58pm Tony Coulter:

I gather one of the original members lived (lives?) in Portland, hence their appearances on KBOO in the '70s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/26/13 12:58pm Brian in UK:

Hello Tony, have you considered that your cat might have a thyroid problem. One of ours does the same from about 5am onwards, lil darlin'
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 1:00pm Tony Coulter:

Hey Brian! It's possible, given that he's 15. I think, though, that's it's just that he's a pain.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/26/13 1:01pm Rich in Washington:

I don't think so. The Portland connection was friend, Bill R, who was a DJ in the mid-70s. I interviewed Homer Flynn last week and he confirmed that KBOO was the first station to play The Residents.
Bill did a wonderfully weird show called Radio Lab until about '79 or so. He's also responsible for some pretty cool YouTube videos showing the early Rez' studio, etc...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/26/13 1:01pm Brian in UK:

Tony, do you have any peregrinations across the water planned for this year.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/26/13 1:02pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Somewhere amongst my crap I still have my VHS of the episode of Night Flight (mole show era) which featured an "interview" with the residents (one besuited eyeball-head character not speaking, and a young "interpreter") . Great show. Was my first glimpse of many of those early videos.

Actually Jeremy, reading "Space is the Place" only reinforced the mystery of Sun Ra. I came away from the book more baffled than ever. And not due to poor research or writing, just the fact that Ra was a genuine enigma. 'Tis a good read.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/26/13 1:44pm Uncle Michael:

Who plays on the Sir John track?
  Tue. 2/26/13 1:45pm Demian:

Another Bubble band! I thought Bubble Puppy had cornered that market.
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 1:46pm Tony Coulter:

@ Rich: I've been re-discovering tons of the better-known '70s bands since moving to Portland because that kind of thing is really cheap around here.
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 1:46pm SIR LANCELOT PRATT:

I agree with you Mr Fab,
found the Sun Ra book Space is the Place, as unfathomable as Space itself.
Expecting a biography and discography, what I got were chunks of mystical ramblings!

This great episode of Tony's is interfering with my own production work. DAMN you.
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 1:49pm Tony Coulter:

@ Sir Michael: Music is by Jim Parker; musicians include Clem Cattini: drums; Gary Boyle: guitar; most of the others I haven't heard of.

just passing by no time today, hello and goodbye everybody, will listen it later from the archive!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/26/13 1:50pm Lewis:

@Uncle Michael - aint it the truth!!
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 1:51pm Tony Coulter:

Good hello-goodbye to you, Ol' B!

And greetings, Lewis!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/26/13 1:51pm Uncle Michael:

I'm encountering Clem Cattini *everywhere* these days.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/26/13 1:51pm Brian in UK:

Nice one Tony, gotta cut 'n run. Chin chin.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/26/13 1:51pm Carmichael:

You're pretty safe naming Clem Cattini, Tony. He's played on everything British since Joe Meek.
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 1:53pm Tony Coulter:

See you, Brian!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/26/13 1:58pm Brian in UK:

Carmichael, I used to work with his nephew Paul, he had a band with the great name 'Bad Karma Beckons'
Really going now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/26/13 2:01pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Yay, Esplendor... favorite track on Minimal Wave no.1
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 2:04pm Tony Coulter:

Noisy, but chic.
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 2:04pm SIR LANCELOT PRATT:

SPLENDOR GEOMETRICA Moscu Esta Helado (1980) - sounds like what The Fall wanted to sound like but were to crap to do so
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/26/13 2:17pm Uncle Michael:

I finally have an hour selected for my "The Prisoner" inspired show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/26/13 2:18pm Carmichael:

Great 80s synth drum. Crack that whip!
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 2:20pm Tony Coulter:

@ Uncle Michael: Will he manage to escape by the end of the show?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/26/13 2:21pm Uncle Michael:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/26/13 2:22pm Ike:

Who is No. 1? You are, No. 6.

Or not.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/26/13 2:23pm Uncle Michael:

I am the new No. 2.
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 2:23pm Tony Coulter:

Chairman Ike -- greetings!
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 2:34pm Tony Coulter:

Hard to believe this is the power-pop band Shoes ... but it is.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/26/13 2:41pm Carmichael:

Is this an Illinois-themed set, Tony?
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 2:43pm Tony Coulter:

Could be, accidentally -- I'm not very state-conscious. Country-conscious, yes; state-conscious, no.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/26/13 2:46pm Carmichael:

The 1st 2 were from IL, but I believe Ms. Peacock is a Brooklynite.
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 2:48pm SIR LANCELOT PRATT:

looks like you have been checking out lots of funky hip hop labels like Stones Throw, Numero, and the breakbeat friendly lp by Annette Peacock.

Could it be you are now digging a bit of cool soul funk?
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 2:51pm Tony Coulter:

I've always liked a bit of that in the mix -- though as for Stones Throw and Numero I've only dipped a pinky toe into their funk stuff -- they release other flavors as well.
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 2:53pm SIR LANCELOT PRATT:

both labels are excellent and present top quality material, expertly remastered. Stuff that was slept on at the time of its original release.
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 2:55pm Tony Coulter:

Thanks for listening and commenting, everybody. See you next time for the first marathon shift. If I don't say so myself, my premium will really be something special this year.
  Tue. 2/26/13 2:55pm Jeremy:

I found an original copy of that Annette Peacock a few years ago in a charity shop in Glasgow, but left it in the pub! Kick myself for that often.
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 2:55pm SIR LANCELOT PRATT:

Excellent show Tony, but I suppose next week we will have the big M in town!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/26/13 2:55pm Ike:

Will you have a co-host, Tony?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/26/13 2:56pm northguineahills:

I got here for the last 5 minutes, woo!
  Tue. 2/26/13 2:57pm Jeremy:

Great show, Tony, loved all the variety.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/26/13 2:57pm Carmichael:

Thanks, Tony!
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 2:57pm Tony Coulter:

@ Ike: Possibly. I'm still working out the kinks. Prizes yes, anyhow.
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 2:57pm Tony Coulter:

Heya NGH! Enjoy your minutes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/26/13 2:58pm Uncle Michael:

Loved the Mort Fudge Dump.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/26/13 2:58pm Uncle Michael:

Thanks for the show, Tony.
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 2:58pm SIR LANCELOT PRATT:

somebody cool Tony, perhaps, John Peel, Syd Barrett, Viv Stanshall?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/26/13 3:00pm Rich in Washington:

Thanks, Senor Tony!
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 3:00pm SIR LANCELOT PRATT:

I mean to co-host the show!
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 3:00pm Tony Coulter:

Thanks again, everybody!! See ya!
