Dunno why it's called 2x5, it's in 6/8, and yes, I'm still stuck in my 6/8 phase.
Avatar 12:06am

Okay, there's a bunch more math involved. 2x5 is probably in there somewhere.
Psycho Reggie:

Man, this Steve Reich is exactly what I needed tonight/ Good looks, Nick Name.

Good Morning Nick ! I've said it before, I like the way you sound coming behind Dave and Bingo. A bit warmer in Jersey City than it's been, may I assume, since it's gotten warmer in NYC?
Avatar 12:08am
I dig taters:

Happy Friday all. Am looking forward to those promised artists Nick Name. Thanks for the show
Psycho Reggie:

Oh, and Droll, 2x5 refers to the musicians. It's a looped thing of two quintets consisting of drums, guitar x2, piano, and bass. 2x5
Avatar 12:11am

Ahhh, thanks. The 2x3 King Crimson must be blushing.
Santos L Halper:


this reich is recent 2008; looked it up
Nick Name:

yes 2008 - he is still delivering the goods

@P.Reggae: Thanks for that. Are you like a full on Reich freick?
Nick Name:

Hi Droll / Psycho Reggie / p-90 - i dig tasters - and all else - thanks for joining
Psycho Reggie:

Nah, I dig him but I'm not expert. I got stoned and listened to this record a lot when my college station got it back in 2008 or whatever.
Avatar 12:17am

It's worse than I thought -- there are videos: www.youtube.com...

@Droll: Is that new 2014 Crimson 4 x 3 = 12 ? You just reminded me, I think that's what Dear Bob said.
Good bet they'll play some 6/8. I"m totally with Mr. Name on the bitchin'-ness of 6/8. It always sounds....."cosmopolitan" or something to me

This Chicago is a palate cleanser..am I right DJ Nick Name?
Nick Name:

it fits like a glove
Nick Name:

a good comfortable glove
Avatar 12:39am

I remember that as a Peter Cetera song, not Chicago, which I associate with Terry Kath.

Definitely good with whoever's playing bass here... I mean the song after Cetera on bass, of course.

that space 3, an old fav, thx

aw man, i missed chicago

@Nate: hahahahahahah

OK. now you're starting to wake me up.

@TheVoiceOfTheLeftCoast: welcome

when I turned on wfmu this morning, africa by toto was playing...it would have been a nice bookend to the day

pacific standard simon:

Ooops, spoke too soon.
Avatar 12:49am

I didn't realize Chicago was such a divisive band... It's gotta be the horns.

@nate OMG that's right, that was wild. Freeform at its freakiest
@pss: don't be hatin' on poor Weinberg now, he was hip

Divide and Conquer!!! Bwah-ha-ha-ha-ha haaaaaaaaa

yay for claire chase!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:59am
pacific standard simon:

Didn't Terry Kath blow his brains out? Would that have had something to do with being partially responsible for Chicago?
Avatar 1:05am

Ouch! I don't think Chicago was nearly that bad. Terry had an articulate and distinctive rhythm technique, and his "Free Form Guitar" on the CTA debut is nothing to be ashamed of.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:09am
pacific standard simon:

True -- I did like "Free Form Guitar" -- used it as an intro to Gang Of Four's "Anthrax" on a mix tape, and it segued PERFECTLY.
Avatar 1:09am

Is it 25 or 6 to 4 yet? Nope, only 9 past 1.

This Ground Zero is nice, too -- sounds like Naked City.

Does anybody really know what time it is? Does anybody really care?

I am guessing that "Under the Hills and Nearby" is a play on Led Zeppelin? I liked that Space Lady, did a search on Wiki and learned a little more.
Avatar 2:21am

The artwork on Bandcamp for Under the Hills has a J-Card -- how quaint!

I was going to make fun of the Guardian Alien drummer for all the fancy rudiments, but then I looked them up and it's the drummer's band. Go figure.
Nick Name:

@ Flying Airport : not too sure? possibly. Yeh Space Lady cd is decent - thx for checking in
Avatar 2:56am

Thanks NN. Great Reich and thanks for the clue about Sax Ruins. Have a fun week!
Nick Name:

Hey Droll - thx for commenting / hanging out - have a great weekend
Avatar 2:58am
flying airport:

I did check the Bandcamp and I'm sure he is pun-ning Over the Hills and Far Away, a Led Zepplin tune. Thanks again
