Good evening!

Hi Therese! How's my favorite nighttime DJ doing? =)

...KoSL is *not* some kewl song by X I never heard
...one thing about this program being late is my tendency to get things wrong increases...

Hey, Therese!
Avatar 12:25am BadGuyZero:

@RRN63: I too thought the vocals sounded a lot like John and Exene.

...dammit - kewl trax - but I know if I try 'n' listen in my sleep - I'll prob. wake up ~3A.M. & wonder 'wtf'?!?...
Avatar 12:32am BadGuyZero:

I can't think of a single Scottish band that I haven't liked. I'm sure there's one or two out there, but overall that country produces some fine bands.
Avatar 12:33am flashback:

night all.
Avatar 12:33am KP:

Bay City Rollers?
  12:36am Lovelace:

An album title referencing Henry V, nice
Avatar 12:41am flashback:

this is very interesting.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:43am Therese:

Yup. It's the Pet Shop Boys covering Springsteen.
Avatar 12:45am Droll:

BGZ, Interesting -- I'm not able to think of a crap Scotch band either. Normally Oz is my example for "land that does not produce lame bands".
Avatar 12:45am flashback:

i like the springsteen cd where him and other musicians play old folk music with the original non electric music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:47am Julie:

ooh great song
Avatar 12:47am flashback:

i mean early 19th century folk music .songs like john henry.
Avatar 12:51am BadGuyZero:

For the record I have no misgivings about Bay City Rollers.
Avatar 12:54am KP:

Love this. There's a great vid of them doing Make Me Smile at a festival. Emotive. THanks.
Avatar 1:00am BadGuyZero:

Ok...I thought I was the only one who didn't think "Velvet Goldmine" was very good. I thought it was going to be the glam rock Goodfellas or Boogie Nights, and it just wasn't in the same league. A former roommate thought it was the greatest thing ever which is why I thought I was alone in not like it so much.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:01am Julie:

it's all about the soundtrack
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:06am Julie:

Belieber?? it's not Belieber is it??
Avatar 1:07am BadGuyZero:

Holy hell! How old is he???
Avatar 1:11am BadGuyZero:

Is he building it in Puerto Nasa?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:14am Julie:

she reminds me of nanci griffith
Avatar 1:22am KP:

In that Steve Harley fest clip i had seen, the electric guitar player uses an acoustic on a stand to play the signature solo. That part of song isnt on this version.
Avatar 1:26am KP:

Can you follow with Nick Drake's mother, Therese?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:26am Julie:

Avatar 1:29am KP:

We want Molly Drake! Wonder if his actress sister also sang.
Avatar 1:30am KP:

"We" being me and the cat, who has five lives left.
  Swag For Life Member 1:31am Lonely Planet Boy:

Your knowledge is deep, KP. Never knew about Nick's mom until I Googled it.
Avatar 1:37am KP:

I love Nick Drake. That album has been played here quite a bit. She sounds like him in voice and approach. Too sad, even for me.
  1:39am sadlo:

had to check in to be sure this wasn't Adam Duritz (counting crows)
  Swag For Life Member 1:40am Lonely Planet Boy:

What I love about WFMU is always learning something new, whether from the DJ, or an astute listener. Thx, KP!
Avatar 1:43am KP:

For record, so to speak, his sister Gabrielle does sing on one track on a Nick Drake ablum called Family Tree. Just looked that up. Never heard of the release, have to confess.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:44am Julie:

Who is having the two drinks? Him or us?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:45am Julie:

Will there be Nick/Therese crossover chat?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:46am Therese:

We'll see, Julie!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:48am Julie:

You said that in your mom voice, didn't you
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:49am Therese:

Well, not in MY mom's voice...
Avatar 1:49am BadGuyZero:

At least she didn't tell you to go ask Nick.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:50am Nick the Bard:

WE'll see if I can get far enough along with the comic to do anything.

Although, I could jsut cheat a bit and use an older one I forgot I had on this card. That's a better one. Even if it'd have to get retconned a bit :/
Avatar 1:52am BadGuyZero:

@Nick: Lots of pog references?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:54am Nick the Bard:

Not until I can get a figure of Steve Allen (I have ALF toys around my house somewhere, but Steve Allen is needed far more)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:55am Nick the Bard:

I did go to a garage sale two years ago where some woman tried to sell me a sandwich bag of POGs for like six bucks. I couldn't put the bag down fast enough and managed to talk her down to a buck each for a Dino Riders VHS tape and a two color liquid filled pyramid thing.
Avatar 1:57am BadGuyZero:

I liked at the end of the POG fad when they actually started releasing POGs that appealed to me. Star Wars, Earthworm Jim and Universal Monsters.
Avatar 2:00am BadGuyZero:

Are you playing this on a Gameboy?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:02am Nick the Bard:

I still have all of mine (kept in the first mailer tube I ever got too. I got it when the Sci-fi Book Club sent me a replacement jacket for messed one my copy of The Princess Bride had), as well as the POG maker with a bunch of blanks still. THe POG maker's blades still work too 20 years in.

Now I feel all old. Dammit :/
  Swag For Life Member 2:04am Lonely Planet Boy:

I love this Glitz song.
Avatar 2:04am BadGuyZero:

ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED: Made Nick the Bard feel old.
Avatar 2:06am KP:

LPB, that was new to me but pretty cool/funny. Sounded current and dated at same time!
Avatar 2:07am BadGuyZero:

This Jeffrey Novak track sounds like Robyn Hitchcock crossed with Ian Hunter.
Avatar 2:07am KP:

Who is Jeffrey Novak? great voice.
Avatar 2:08am KP:

Good comparison!
Avatar 2:11am KP:

1-2-3 ... 3!
Avatar 2:11am BadGuyZero:

Tonight we dine on elf meat!
Avatar 2:13am BadGuyZero:

The one guy gets older and the rest of the band stays the same age.

Thought you were returning to your Who ways with start of that one, Therese.

Entwistle came back for this one, huh?

Freefall on the 5:15!

Got to see Melvins last weekend! Always a treat.

The band I manage [Maleveller] has opened for The Sword a few times.
  2:36am Scotty Ray:

wow... sludgie. Really enjoying it in Saigon
Avatar 2:46am BadGuyZero:

Destruction Unit! A band that actually lives up to their name live. I hadn't seen fireworks, instruments and garbage flying through the air like that since some Crash Worship show I went to circa 1993.
Avatar 2:47am KP:

Avatar 2:52am KP:

See me. Feel me. Knead me.
Avatar 2:56am KP:

Well thanks Therese. We like the rock.
  2:59am Steve-O:

Lovely show as usual, Therese.

Have a wonderful week, fellas! =)
Avatar 3:00am BadGuyZero:

Great show as always, Therese! See you back here next week!
