Hey Bill! Good morning everyone! I got up an hour earlier so I could be right on time today.
  3:07am P-90:

Namaste and ahoy, @ DJ Bill Mac! Onward into the night!
Avatar 3:11am Bill Mac:

Sleep, you guys sleep? I'm on no sleep tonight, so it's just a matter of time before the tongue gets fat and my monologues drift onward into the night. Let's play!!!

Hello Bill Mac & others. I will be awake & listening for a while,but shan't be typing any more this morning;so i bid you adieu here and Thank you for what promises to be a fantastic show.

Much better Andy - I promise I won't whine anymore. Hiyo coelacanth always good to have you come by!

Hey in all the excitement I forgot to turn on the heat under the coffee. Yipe!

A Martian Time Slip
Avatar 4:09am Whooda:

I think that's the idea, a nice 20 minute song to catch a quick nap with.
Avatar 4:11am Bill Mac:

Probably the band.
Avatar 4:20am Whooda:

Jack Bruce recently spoke in the Ginger Baker documentary that he (Jack Bruce) liked Baker's long drum solos because it gave him a chance to leave the stage and smoke a cigarette.
Avatar 4:21am Bill Mac:

Hah, that's another documentary I need to see.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:23am Fran:

Morning all - I'm one of those whose mental snooze clock hasn't yet readjusted to the 7am UK start! Was a bit disorientated listening to the proto Phil Collins drumming on Ricky Martin's Livin La Gadda da Vida a few minutes ago but I'm OK now
Avatar 4:23am Whooda:

It is surprisingly good, a must see. Baker's ambition was to be the best jazz drummer or at least accepted as worthy with the other great jazz drummers. He came from a jazz background and always saw himself as a jazz drummer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:26am Fran:

The other theory about Jack's delight about Toad or other long solo moments was that it distracted Ginger from killing Jack for a while at least! Ginger's latest band Jazz Confusion is worth seeing if you get a chance.
Avatar 4:27am Whooda:

That's funny! And likely more true than not.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:29am Fran:

Ginger's stint in Hawkwind was interesting - a great album in Levitation but a missed opportunity to release something called Maniac at the Edge of Time!
Avatar 4:30am Whooda:

Man alive! that is some sultry organista you've envoked there DJ Bill Mac
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:33am Fran:

Go to Fruits de Mer Crabstock if you can - I shall be at the UK event in Cardigan, Wales headlined by the wonderful Sendelica - and it even has a commemorative beer!! Bill - investigate Sendelica - space rockers of quality!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:44am Fran:

Ah ha! Go4 - this has a hallowed spot in the Fran vinyl temple!
Avatar 4:47am Looms:

Ah, Deadbolt! :)
Avatar 4:50am Bill Mac:

Yep first couple of GO4 and Killing Joke albums opened my eyes to some of the best music of that period.
Avatar 4:50am Bill Mac:

@Looms - We like Deadbolts 'Patches' around the house.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:52am Fran:

Yes the Go4 and one or two contemporaries livened up my later school years and showed me how to spend my pockey money wisely!
Avatar 4:54am Bill Mac:

I always complain about the 80s as being a weak time in music, but there was a plethora of goodly shit out there if you just took the time...
Avatar 4:54am Jay/London:

oh my head over did it last night .. got up at last .. lots of coffe me thinks. Good morning Bill and all
Avatar 4:56am Looms:

I never spent a dime on Gang Of Four's music though I always liked what I heard, shame on me!

Hi Jay!
Avatar 4:56am Bill Mac:

Morning Jay- time for some tennis....
Avatar 4:56am Jay/London:

yes the 80s started bad for music but finished well
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:56am Fran:

For sure Bill - it was a really healthy scene but hasn't been given a fair hearing due to a lot of really arch rubbish involving hairspray, Don Johnson's trousers and synth drums!
Avatar 4:57am Bill Mac:

That's funny I was thinking the opposite Jay. I think it started well then it got bad, then it recovered in time for the 90s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:58am Fran:

Hi Jay. My view of the 80's was good start, mixed middle and then some good stuff at the end obscured by crap that developed into Britpop and landfill indie
Avatar 4:59am Bill Mac:

@Fran - they were too dainty to be referred to as trousers.
Avatar 4:59am Jay/London:

it seemed to lose its way after punk then got a new heading later on in about 84
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:00am Fran:

Heh heh - white billowing sheets of cheesiness rather than trousers then!
Avatar 5:00am Jay/London:

Tennis only on the computer with my head at this time Bill
Avatar 5:01am Bill Mac:

The skinny tie phase was rough, but yeah, good stuff by labels like SST helped salvage what could've been bland musical years.
Avatar 5:02am Bill Mac:

@Jay To be sure :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:04am Fran:

Agreed - skinny ties and bad synth drums, Phil Collins Murder (sorry murdering) Ballads, the genesis of Oasis, US overly styled hair metal - bad bad bad......I must stop!!
Avatar 5:09am Jay/London:

do you remember seeing phil collins on live aid then he flew to the usa and the band he played with over there did not want to put it on the dvd as it was so bad
  5:09am chrissy in london:

Morning Bill long time... Thanks for the cornershop track me and little oscar were rocking out to it. Not heard it in ages used to go see them live back in the day. Headbanging fun. Do you know a great 90s band called Prolapse? :0>
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:11am Fran:

Bill that was a noble defence of Mr Sussudio - as a drummer myself I full agree with his skills/good music in earlier Genesis and Brand X but what followed almost sent him to be thrown into rather than dance on a volcano! Now for a Phil Collins/Peter Hammill duets album!
  5:13am chrissy in london:

Yes please check em out, amazing stuff and they were killer live. Cornershop are still going Prolapse sadly not. Yes I love Womens gotta have it too, prob my fave..
  5:14am P-90:

Phil Collins was a "pretty good drummer?" Check those Genesis albums again, he was one of the greatest ever. He saw the chance to be a different kind of pop star in the eighties and went for it, but that doesnt undo the brilliant work he did on vinyl and live before then. His Genesis work, including the first two albums after Gabriel left, is uniformly original, creative, and technically immaculate.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:15am Fran:

Phil Collins and Peter Hammill release new album - 'You drum I hum we are Humdrum' - oh if only!!! As you might have gathered Bill I might be being ironic here........
Avatar 5:15am Bill Mac:

Thank you P-90, I heartily agree. I'm glad to see we're all in the same camp on this. BTW, he's helping Adele with her new one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:17am Fran:

And now for the Purps - were they uniformly good or which was the best phase? I also think the Tommy Bolin period is much maligned and unfairly so!
  5:19am michael and Birgit:

Short move in....Good Morning Bill ! Next week we can listen longer. But i think we missed a lot today. Hope you`re well and let`s hear Deep Purple. What about Whitesnake..?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:19am Fran:

Cornershop - very inventive and good band by the way. One of my favourites of their's however is an alt.country style track which guested Paula Frazer of Tarnation on vocals.
Avatar 5:19am Whooda:

If I remember correctly in the 80's Collins was booked years in advance to work on multiple projects and play on other's studio recordings. He was in enormous demand for his talents and creativity. His original style of pop was very important to pop music.
  5:20am chrissy in london:

Good place to start re prolapse. Hope you enjoy:
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:22am Fran:

Whooda - as long as that doesn't mean there is also a backlog of his 80's stuff that hasn't yet come out - I couldn't take any of that blow dried rubbish he did with Clapton for example
Avatar 5:23am Whooda:

I'm not a musician but I was dumbstruck that someone could be so much in demand that there was a year's long waiting list for his time not including the projects and offers he turned down.
Avatar 5:24am Bill Mac:

@M&B Whitesnake!!!! Aaaaagh!!!!
How are you guys doing? Before I forget, I saw that the Swans released a 'single' from their new album. They're coming here in May! Get out your earplugs and impact suits!
Avatar 5:24am Bill Mac:

@Thanks Chrissy!
  5:26am P-90:

I'm interested to hear the Adele/Collins project because she badly needs to be supported in doing something really original that isn''t squeezed into some contempo-crap-p-Idol style. I'm reminded that one of the more interesting things he did in the eighties was collaborating with Frida from ABBA on a solo album which was tremendously successful AND done in a progressive and original style.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:26am Fran:

Seeing Swans in May here too and my earplugs are ready! They are now posting the odd track on the new fangled interweb contraption I think and it sounds like with The Seer they have some interesting guests - and just to echo Bill - WHITESNAKE!!!!! AAAAGGHH!!!!!
Avatar 5:29am Whooda:

This is my exit folks, getting of at Sandman Street. Thanks for the wonderful show DJ Bill Mac and wonderful round table trash talking.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:30am Fran:

Whooda - I think Phil Collins proves that being a superb musician makes you in demand but you can be too technically good, a desirable name to have associated with a project and bland - I give you Kenny G - now there is trash talk!! See you Whooda
  5:31am michael and Birgit:

Saw Whitesnake 1980 supporting AC/DC. With a broken left arm 3rd row... (16 Years and a lot crazy) Over that we are fine, missed the marathon, pledge later and the swans...great. Going to see Thurston Moore next week with Steve Shelley in an small club. Last week i opened a long time forgotten Bag at my mothers house. There was a Record from a Band called "Angel" Double Live Album. Puh, the Clothes, all in white. What does that mean.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:32am Fran:

I love all this bossa jazz type stuff which always recalls 70's film incidental music in a good way
Avatar 5:32am Bill Mac:

Later Whooda! Thanks for your feedback!
Avatar 5:33am Whooda:

:0 So happy to get to hear the Bossa Jazz and Waits. Excellent!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:34am Fran:

ANGEL - LIVE - There is more coiffed hair on that sleeve than your average salon in a week from memory!
Avatar 5:35am Bill Mac:

@ M&B Angel were on Casablanca, same as KISS, and I thought that maybe they were marketed to counteract them. My brother actually had an Angel album. Anyone remember Zappas' "Punkys' Lips"?
  5:36am Mrs. Bill Mac:

We saw Angel open for someone ... can you remember mister DJ?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:37am Fran:

Wasn't it Punky's Whips?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:39am Fran:

Angel - please reform to do that disappearing trick....can Phil Collins guest on vocals that night?
  5:42am michael and Birgit:

Hey, never thought, that so many people can talk about that Band. Guys, great fun and thanks...
  5:42am Mrs. Bill Mac:

ask and you will receive .....

Only made worse by any involvement of Foreigner or REO Speedwagon Mrs Mac!!!
  5:51am jeff in Puna:

You hurt show? I meant "your show". Yogurt radio shows are a snooze.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:52am Fran:

..............but I have to admit a real liking for the band Kansas - at least their earlier albums up to the turn of the 80's. I think their hair was less perfect so they are OK to sort of like!

Avatar 7:19am Brian in UK:

Nice archives Bill but I do feel for your lack of sleep. Here is an odd link with all this loose talk of Hawkwind.
Avatar 7:30am Brian in UK:

Phil Collins polarises people. Who can fault his skills. Genesis, Brand X and with Eno. So he took the middle ground. I will always take his side purely because he chose a David Ackles' Down River on Desert Island Discs.
