Yeah - VU's 1st album has such a wide impact - could say it's been well-absorbed - but it's like covering The Beatles...well, this's just stating the obvious...
- Could say something about Britt Ekland's attributes - but gratuitousness aside - yeah - kinda puts Paganism in a negative light - but great flick....

I had a friend 20 years ago who had a Sovtek amp -- since I'm a non-guitarhead, is this related?

All received info., Droll. I cannot afford. Are there not certain gasses in them?
Avatar Wed. 5/1/13 10:31pm Droll:

RRN, In fact there are vacuums inside of those tubes.
Avatar Wed. 5/1/13 10:32pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- One Google result:
VACUUM TUBES - Green Bullet Mic's
greenbulletmics.com/VACUUM_TUBES.html - Cached
The only countries producing vacuum tubes today are Russia, China, and Japan.
Avatar Wed. 5/1/13 10:38pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Makes sense Droll!
- This is what I've always heard. Urban myth? A tube is more 'mechanical' to produce? Otherwise, labor cost is the reason?
- Tubes distort in the right way: they are a little fire. Only Guitarists want them - & a few Audiophiles (add 'warmth' to digital signals).
- Another thing commonly accepted: tubes accent even harmonics, & solid state the odd ones...All maybe a bit Spinal Tap for the Board here?...
Avatar Wed. 5/1/13 10:41pm Droll:

RRN, It's all about power, portability, and convenience: tubes cannot run on battery power or fit in a cell phone.

I saw Wax Idols and TV Ghost when I was in Chicago last week. It was fantastic!
Avatar Wed. 5/1/13 10:45pm fearson:

this is a jam!
Avatar Wed. 5/1/13 10:45pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...yeah - they need a lot of maintenance - like a noisy Harley that only works when it's straining; some guitarists use digital amps for reliability - w/ a box w/ *one tube* for the warmth...One recording artist told me that if he records w/ analog tape, he doesn't need to worry about 'adding warmth' later!...

Super show so far efd (like it's gonna slack off ;-)), and can't wait for next week's live sets!
Avatar Wed. 5/1/13 10:55pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

I want to know what year did tubes at the drugstore stop being common. This is central to the kind of stuff I keep track of and try to report on.

At my age I remember shopping at Woolworth's, but not for tubes.

I remember tube testers as late as the early '70s. I have a feeling that, as coin operated photocopiers became more in-demand, store managers found the motivation to phase out the tube-testers.

Avatar Wed. 5/1/13 11:08pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- Well - as I see it - digital has *all* the advantages (clarity, compressible, programmable) - except this: Instead of representing the Soundwave analogously (analog) - it Samples it - taking Sections of it & converting it into numbers (digits-digital):
- You don't get a curvy soundwave, but a jagged thing w/ edges. The detail of the edges will depend on your Sampling Rate.
- Another problem w/ digital is the changing Formats, of course. Every medium has its' own qualities, in the end...

Avatar Wed. 5/1/13 11:23pm Droll:

The difference between analog and digital is that when analog is overdriven it bends, when digital is overdriven it breaks. If you're listening to a MP3 or CD, tubes don't matter, but if you're plugging your guitar straight into it or summing 48 tracks, tubes make all the difference in the world.
Avatar Wed. 5/1/13 11:23pm G:

Avatar Wed. 5/1/13 11:24pm Danne D:

Btw, according to the accuplaylist search engine, there's only one WFMU DJ that has ever played anything off of Emerson, Lake and Palmer's "Love Beach" - anyone want to venture a guess at who this DJ is? (they are on the current schedule, that's my one clue)

'That's not Buffering Issues - that's our Programming.'
- Made me think of Dave Mandl & Comments, actually...

My junior high school library had a ton of 16 RPM "audiobook" LPs -- that was how you listened to Edgar Allan Poe stories, or whatever.

@Droll: I just adjusted the speed down on the turntable and retuned the guitar to match :p

Another fun method was transfer the track top reel-to-reel, and cut the speed in half to make things one octave lower and half the velocity :)

Elementary, my dear Hodge

@Droll I know I was just goofin' :) Terre has played a little prog once in a while - sometimes when I've turned up on her comments page ;)

any hyphenates on the Clinton Hensley album?

@Droll - my first car was called the Tarkus #TrueFact

Screaming Blue Messiahs! One of my favorite '80s bands. But not the Flinstones song.

I would have gone with The English Horseface

I never heard of 16 RPM recording before! How great it's Poe...Digital great for pitch control - but Backwards, the obligatory Psych effect - tape for that...
Avatar Wed. 5/1/13 11:36pm Sarah Jessica Parker:

I luv this band.

DD, Do you know commenter, AZ? They have a Tarkus Cake photo! wfmu.org...

@MichaelftLC, surprisingly no!
Avatar Wed. 5/1/13 11:37pm pacific standard simon:

No Carter vocal, but otherwise sounds the same.
Avatar Wed. 5/1/13 11:38pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

'Parchment Farm' riff...Tarkus cake is a phenom.!
Avatar Wed. 5/1/13 11:38pm Danne D:

@Droll no. But I just friended them :)
Avatar Wed. 5/1/13 11:40pm Danne D:

I certainly can't goof on EFD about fantasy baseball as my team is suckin' - it zoomed all the way up to 8th place tonight
Avatar Wed. 5/1/13 11:41pm pacific standard simon:

So... there must be a Horseface US, right?
Avatar Wed. 5/1/13 11:41pm Danne D:

At least Belock finally made a transaction. It was kinda embarrassing having him kick all our asses w/o even changing his roster once. He's still in 1st though. EFD is running in 4th currently.

Simultaneously following a very ugly Giants/Diamondbacks game. Brandon Crawford is this year's model.

Anybody hear Irwin's comment this afternoon:
"My cat came out of the closet today."
Avatar Wed. 5/1/13 11:47pm pacific standard simon:

Irwin's a shit-stirrer, and I don't think he has a problem with that.
Avatar Wed. 5/1/13 11:48pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

KP: Yeah.
Avatar Wed. 5/1/13 11:51pm Danne D:

Btw, welcome back Hanley Ramirez :) 4/7 already
Avatar Wed. 5/1/13 11:51pm Stevel:

KP: Need to catch up with that. Busy days are not good radio days, unless you're 'trapped' at the computer.
Avatar Wed. 5/1/13 11:52pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Heard kewl YYY's/Karen O. stuff lately. Pleased by that.
Avatar Wed. 5/1/13 11:52pm Danne D:

didn't hear it. Didn't realize his cat played basketball
Avatar Wed. 5/1/13 11:53pm G:

My cat is always in the goddam closet.
Avatar Wed. 5/1/13 11:56pm pacific standard simon:

@G - put yer damn dirty socks in the hamper, already!
Avatar Wed. 5/1/13 11:56pm Droll:

Irwin? That quiet guy who keeps his opinions to himself? I can't imagine he'd instigate anything. Is he really still on air? I thought they just gave that old coot a hairbrush to talk into for three hours.
  Wed. 5/1/13 11:56pm 12539:

Great show, Evan!
Avatar Wed. 5/1/13 11:58pm G:

He saw a camera and came out to pose on my shoulder. And then back in the closet again. Seriously, he can monitor all the comings and goings from a cushy spot right next to the toilet paper inventory. Hisses if you open the door on him.

...The Polls all show that younger people - Aquarian Age Knowledge people - all acknowledge that people are born w/ their sexual preferences
- & all the older people of the Piscean Age - the age of Belief & Religion don't acknowledge it.
...It's a Civil Rights issue & it's all over bit the shouting, as expression goes...

Thanks, EFD. See you next week, and get ready for that drum throwdown, I know Irwin has been doing his homework!
Avatar Thu. 5/2/13 12:00am Stevel:

The efd imprimatur.

Yes, I had to use spell check on that.
Avatar Thu. 5/2/13 12:01am Danne D:

Thanks for a great show EFD :)

Thanks commenters for humoring my usual goofiness :)

Take care all :D

Dave Meniketti is a bay area hero! Great to hear some Yesterday & Today. And that Cuts track still sounds so hot. Great show EFD. I am looking forward to your WAX IDOLS stories!
