we have to compare notes on Unsung if you have a sec.
  12:04pm Duane:

Which one Cecile..Mint Condition or Whispers?
Avatar 12:06pm Jan Audun Uretsky:

Hello Duane, sorry I didn't get chat with you more. Delmaur, Maria and I all drank a little too much and then went to Elizabeth street to eat tacos...
  12:07pm Duane:

No worries Jan! Always great to see you out & about!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:08pm Caryn:

Phew, nice to have a soulful respite from 3 hours of gif identification!
Avatar 12:09pm Jan Audun Uretsky:

I think Sherwood is going to be in town late May, but I'll be in LA at that time...
Avatar 12:09pm Jan Audun Uretsky:

gif identification?
Avatar 12:10pm Cecile:

Both, but not Johnny Gill. I love his voice, but that was the most boring one since Ray Parker, Jr.

They LOVE Mint here. I respect them, but they're just a hair soft/fuzaky for me.
Avatar 12:10pm Cecile:

Caryn always knows the GIFs Ken puts up, It's a big job.
Avatar 12:11pm Jshatan:

Yes - Adrian Sherwood will be at La Poisson Rouge May 30th - with Lee Perry, Sun Araw/Congos, Peaking Lights in Dub, etc. Should be a night.
  12:12pm Duane:

I liked the Johnny Gill one. Wasn't as boring as Parker Jr. Mint condition was cool..i learned a lot about them..the Whispers was awesome though

this is wonderful

Hey tim!! RRN!#..lil caryn!!
Avatar 12:14pm Cecile:

The Johnny Gill was automatically better than Ray because he sang way better songs.

hola people... i discovered Ada from Hamburg this week. great, sweet music. keeping me occupied while i wait for my favorite wfmu shows to drop some knowledge!

  12:19pm Duane:

Ada is great robyn. I wish she was a bit more prolific though.
HI Jennique:)

I've now spent 10 minutes pondering whether I should change my avatar name to "lil Caryn", just because Duane said it...
Avatar 12:25pm ChrisB.:

Paul & Barry is a nice new discovery for me, once again courtesy of Duane.
Avatar 12:26pm Cecile:

ChrisB, it is great stuff.

@Cecile: however, considering how antithetical it is to my physical being, I suspect if I changed it to that, I'd feel like an extra in a mob movie.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:33pm robyn:

hahaha...duane you went to a lot of effort to avoid the phrase "give me some sugar"
Avatar 12:33pm Droll:

Ike, That was no Curve.
Avatar 12:34pm Jan Audun Uretsky:

Blind Mr. Jones
Avatar 12:34pm Jan Audun Uretsky:

Avatar 12:34pm Jshatan:

If it wasn't Curve, may it was a Doppelganger... (couldn't resist).
Avatar 12:35pm Cecile:

MBV of course
Avatar 12:35pm Cecile:

ah, wow.
Cowsills are great.

Loves me earliest Cath.Wheel
- folk sayin' here Curve is better than MBV - so gotta check that...I prob. knew it back then & forgot...
Avatar 12:40pm Jan Audun Uretsky:

Early Pale Saints
Avatar 12:42pm Jan Audun Uretsky:

"Black Metallic" by Catherine Wheel is one of the great odes to a car
Avatar 12:42pm Jshatan:

I'll take Curve & (early) Pale Saints over MBV.
Avatar 12:42pm Cecile:

I kind of missed that all, even though I read the Big Takeover a lot at the time. I mostly was trying to keep up with GBV releases and records by ex-members of the Saints.
Avatar 12:44pm Jan Audun Uretsky:

And I don't care what people say, I still really dig "Pearl" by Chapterhouse
  12:44pm Duane:

Early Curve..Doppelganger is a classic of the genre. I even liked the late Pale Saints stuff. "Black Metallic" blew me away when I first heardit. I was also really into this band called Adorable. they were on creation
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:45pm robyn:

some nice 90s keys
Avatar 12:46pm Jan Audun Uretsky:

Ah, I seem to have 3 tracks by Adorable, I'll have to listen after the show...
  12:46pm Duane:

Cecile, I tried to collect the GBV shit, but that stuff was so expensive even then. When Bee thousand hit..man! That shit was rivaling Sun Ra OG's
Avatar 12:47pm Droll:

Ike and I agree Curve is tops, especially if you ignore the words. The sonic link between MBV, Swervedriver, and Curve is producer Alan Moulder, who is married to Toni Halliday of Curve.
Avatar 12:48pm Jan Audun Uretsky:

Thanks for turning me onto Psychemagik Duane, their pretty cool.
Avatar 12:48pm Cecile:

ooooooooooooooooooh love that.

Really? it was cheap out here. I think I have a red vinyl of that. Well, I was buying it as it came out...
Avatar 12:49pm Cecile:

The super-early stuff I just got in the boxed set.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:49pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- always thot 'Black Metallic' straight-up VenusInFurs fetish - but a car close enuff!
...Always thot Shoegaze totally effected by Ecstacy - being all about long texture & sonic sensation - the DrugTheory of PopHistory...
- Lush did that PowerPop ode to a car - 'Shake Baby Shake - how I wish you were my car' - catchy little bastard...
Avatar 12:49pm Jan Audun Uretsky:

*they're* damn this multitasking
Avatar 12:49pm Cecile:

this is an amazing, sexy track
good stuff.
  12:50pm Duane:

"Horror Head" by Curve has to be one of my fave productions ever. It's up there with "good vibrations" imo.
Avatar 12:52pm Cecile:

I should go back and seek things out.
But right now, my goal is to find the MP3s of all Royal Family and the Poor ballads. Their uptempo numbers - kind of forced.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:53pm Ike:

Some of late-era Curve is excellent too. The second half of "The New Adventures of Curve" is brilliant (though the lyrics are even more rubbish than usual). Self-released, 2002.
Avatar 12:57pm Cecile:

this sounds like Alan Parsons.
Avatar 12:58pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

just in time for the Goblin. Life is good.
Avatar 12:59pm Droll:

Ike, Agreed, Gift may be my fave by them, but I cannot overstate the influence Doppleganger had (has) on me, too difficult to explain here. Way big.

Isn't Goblin considered Prog? (fine with me if it is)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:03pm Ike:

My favorite late-era Curve perhaps: www.youtube.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:03pm braveness23:

B23 here! Hopefully I'll be able to stick around and listen for while today.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:06pm Ike:

Droll, agreed that Doppelgänger is probably their most influential in general, as well as on me (and you).
Avatar 1:11pm Jan Audun Uretsky:

I always got a kick out this track...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:14pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Thx for Info & Opinions
Avatar 1:17pm Jshatan:

Moulder was the British Butch Vig for a while there. Or maybe Butch Vig was the American Flood.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:17pm Caryn:

Great Etta track, great edit.
Avatar 1:18pm Jan Audun Uretsky:

Or maybe Flood was the British Scully...
Avatar 1:19pm Jan Audun Uretsky:

You gave in Duane! Ha
  1:20pm Duane:

had to hear it:)
Avatar 1:20pm Cecile:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:21pm Ike:

Holy shit! I thought I knew all the remixes! And this one's amazing!

That is not Toni's original vocal on the lyrics there.
Avatar 1:22pm Eli:

Avatar 1:22pm Duane:

it is not Ike:) It's a cover i found on soundcloud
Avatar 1:23pm Duane:

Eli: Join in..we were discussing the near-genius of "Doppelganger"
Avatar 1:23pm Eli:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:23pm Ike:

You confused me by attributing to Curve. The wordless parts DO sound like Toni from the original though. Sounds sort of like a cover-remix amalgam.
Avatar 1:24pm Cecile:

oh, I heard this a lot. I never knew who did it.
Avatar 1:24pm Eli:

You put Mike B and I on to Curve. Became a favorite! Alan Moulder... One of the best.
Avatar 1:25pm Droll:

That wasn't a cover, it was a tribute! I've only heard the Beatles covered like that.
Avatar 1:33pm Eli:

I really liked Tycho's album
  1:42pm common:

hell yea horror head! my favorite on that one!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:42pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- the catchy Lush carsong is '500' - for completeness' sake.
  1:45pm common:

contagion was a little weak. was that fulci?
Avatar 1:52pm Jshatan:

Speaking of Beatles covers - the Rustix were smoking!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:00pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Yes - what an interesting Beatles cover. It's a high bar - & a great choice of tune.
Avatar 2:02pm Cecile:

this all the people is a great song.
  2:02pm DC Washington:

All The People track was glorious.
Avatar 2:03pm Jan Audun Uretsky:

This cover is totally fun...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:03pm Caryn:

Loving this cover!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:04pm tim from champaign:

Thought this was Bohannon at first but stoked to see it's Big Apple Band! I've wanted to hear them since reading Nile Rodgers' autobiography.
Avatar 2:04pm Droll:

[Jaw on floor] This is CHIC showing why rappers are about to invent an entire genre based on just this rhythm section.
Avatar 2:04pm Jshatan:

After reading Nile Rodgers' bio (great book, BTW), I was very curious to hear this!
Avatar 2:04pm Duane:

Nile!! gotta love that rhythm scratch!
Avatar 2:05pm Jshatan:

Nile, Tony & Bernard played as one from day one!

cecile: GO4 were big Equals fans back in the 70's. Chic, Funkadelic as wel..
Avatar 2:25pm Cecile:

I knew about the other ones, but I forget about the Equals.

I mean as GoF influences

is funkly an adverb?
Avatar 2:29pm Jshatan:

This is a monster groove.

Duane, this Equals is revelatory. Holy moly.
Avatar 2:30pm Jshatan:

Eddy Grant invents words as well as musical genres.

Avatar 2:31pm Cecile:

I wish he'd come out with something that stops everyone in their tracks. I miss the dude.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:32pm tim from champaign:

I'm drooling all over myself and thinking like a junkie about how to scrounge up the scratch to get my hands on Equals records.
  2:32pm will:

This show is knocking me out. Frankly, Will J
Avatar 2:32pm Jan Audun Uretsky:

TFC, you should here "Stone Cold Cat" from the same release
Avatar 2:33pm Jan Audun Uretsky:

This is "late" equals, so it's a bit different from their earlier stuff
Avatar 2:35pm Duane:

all of the Equals stuff is so good tim. Talk about Unsung!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:35pm tim from champaign:

Cool, thanks Jan. Good to know.
Avatar 2:36pm Joe McG:

"Equals Party" is selling for $227 on Discogs. For those of you with deep pockets.
Avatar 2:37pm Jan Audun Uretsky:

Oh i wasn't saying their earlier stuff was bad! Just that it's not quite like this...

Thank you for the Sun Ra. Just saw Yoko at lunch. (That's what you call a non sequitur.)

yoko ono was in my dream two nights ago...as was paul mccartney and tom scharpling.

Now it's not as non a non-sequitur
Avatar 2:41pm Windy City:

Wow Duane, I thought I was about the only person that had ever heard of Wendy, I always liked her stuff. Nice play.
Avatar 2:42pm Cecile:

who's playing guitar on this?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:42pm northguineahills:

Enjoy the segue from the Equals to Wendy Waldman.... Tight!
Avatar 2:43pm Cecile:

hahahah, I knew Carole King was in the cards.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:44pm Caryn:

For a while, was thrilled thinking about hunting down Equals stuff. Then the 200 buck price tag spooked me. I suspect a search for a cheap-ass cd or two is in the cards...
Avatar 2:45pm Duane:

Wendy Waldman is one of my 70's ladies crushes:)
Love most of her stuff from this era.
Waddy Watchtel on Guitar
Avatar 2:45pm Cecile:

Amazon is pretty good about having out of print stuff on MP3
Avatar 2:45pm Yair Yona:

I'm certainly not getting younger, I just noticed that today
Avatar 2:46pm Cecile:

Duane thought it was him or David Lindley.
  2:47pm Mark:

I looked at Waddy Wachtel's house in L.A. when I was house-hunting in the 90s. It was a beautiful craftsman style house on the edge of Koreatown just off Wilshire.
  2:48pm Mark:

Another non-sequitur.
Avatar 2:50pm Cecile:

hahaha, Mark.
I would call that stream of consciousness rather than non-sequitir. That is a nice neighborhood - my frequent viewing of House Hunters has hipped me to it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:51pm Caryn:

@Cecile: true. But not having an MP3 player, I think I'd prefer a mode that I didn't have to use my computer to listen to.
Avatar 2:51pm Jan Audun Uretsky:

This is a sweet track, can't wait for his full album...
Avatar 2:51pm Cecile:

burn it to a disc?
Avatar 2:52pm Cecile:

this sounds like awesome Sylvers/EWF kind of territory
Avatar 2:52pm Jan Audun Uretsky:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:54pm northguineahills:

Damn, how old was he? He couldn't have been that old!
Avatar 2:54pm Jshatan:

Waddy Wachtel is totally underrated - brilliant work with Bryan Ferry and Warren Zevon.
Avatar 2:55pm Cecile:

oh. I think Waddy has gotten plenty of due.
Avatar 2:55pm Jan Audun Uretsky:

I think he was 43?
Avatar 2:55pm Duane:

It's coming out in August..But if you follow him on Twitter, he'll give you bits & pieces to check out on soundcloud from time to time (owusumusic)
Avatar 2:56pm Cecile:

I see him on a lot of film credits these days.
Avatar 2:56pm Cecile:

Jeez, that is young.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:56pm Caryn:

@Cecile: that would require a cd burner. If I could afford that, I could afford the MP3 player. In other words, for now, no MP3 purchases for me. But good for anyone who can take advantage of those.
Avatar 2:56pm Duane:

Scott was 43. Brain aneurism:(
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:56pm northguineahills:

Shit, that really sucks! I think the last time I saw him was in '97 in Orlando.
Avatar 2:57pm Jan Audun Uretsky:

Yeah one of my best friends was totally torn up last night, he was pretty good friends with Scott
