Good morning Bill
All systems are go!

Scary intro!
You wanna wake us uP?
Good morning Bill!
Avatar 3:10am Bill Mac:

Morning Gents! Is it Saturday already?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:13am Guido from Cologne:

It is more Saturday than one might believe!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:14am Stanley:

Perfect time for a dose of Chrome and other industrial rawk.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:17am Guido from Cologne:

Was that a reunion record of damon and helios?
Avatar 3:18am Bill Mac:

According to this it's Helios Creed playing on tapes Damon Edge did before he died
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:21am Guido from Cologne:

Now i have the picture, thanks Bill!
Avatar 3:22am Brian in UK:

Ahoy mehearties. Capt'n Bill steering the good ship FMU. First mates Stanley 'n Guido aboard too. Hey Stanley did you wet the bed again to be up so early or not been there yet?
Avatar 3:23am Brian in UK:

Guido, Cool comp that you made up.
Avatar 3:24am Brian in UK:

Sad news about the unique Jimmy Scott. Once in a lifetime voice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26am Stanley:

Nothing so crass, Brian. New regime.
Bathroom cleaned, breakfast made,
Whistling as I went.
Avatar 3:29am Bill Mac:

Welcome to the Hygiene Age!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:29am Guido from Cologne:

Good morning Brian!
Which comp are you talking about?
(There are several ...)
But thanks for response anyway!
Avatar 3:31am Brian in UK:

Stanley, I bow down in penitence, if that is the right word.

Guido, someone this week played, I think it was German pop from 60/70s.
Avatar 3:32am Looms:

Hello there!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:34am Guido from Cologne:

Cool! It must have been my Underwater Theme Park contribution. ("Hausputz")
So someone made extended use of it!
Good news.
Avatar 3:34am Brian in UK:

Stanley, I bow down in penitence, if that is the right word.

Guido, Joe McGasko played, Hausputz Teil 1, this week.
  3:35am andy in berlin:

good morning everyone! It looks like SOMEbody overslept this morning
Avatar 3:38am Bill Mac:

Looms AND Andy in the same room together - further debunking the possibility that you're the same person - or superman even...
Avatar 3:40am Brian in UK:

Reminds me of Bang Bang by Cher?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40am Guido from Cologne:

Aaaah Joe McGasko! Cool!
Yeah he was one of the first DeeJays to get it, but obviously very busy!
I wasn't online on Thursday, gonna listen it later.
  3:44am andy in berlin:

@Bill - not me, I've never been the same person
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:02am Guido from Cologne:

Weird enough ... the guitar chunks on "Milwaukee" sound the same like "Knocking At You Door" on Chrome "half machine From The Sun"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:02am mauri:

Good morning Bill and board. My left ear has gone half deaf and I'm supposed to be live mixing tonight.
Avatar 4:03am Looms:

He he, this sounds like something that I like very much :)
Avatar 4:04am Bill Mac:

Hey Mauri, hope it's a temporary condition
Avatar 4:04am Bill Mac:

@Looms, why only an EP?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:09am Fran:

Morning all

Good stuff so far Bill and so glad you are remembering Little Jimmy Scott
Avatar 4:12am Looms:

Bill, now I get your question. They decided to release a EP series which started with Sun Radar; why not?
Avatar 4:12am Bill Mac:

Hi Fran, yeah, one of my favorites. Doing a little tribute during the last hour of the show
Avatar 4:13am Bill Mac:

Oh so it's intentional. Can't argue with the quality of the material
  4:13am andy in berlin:

this is the song that introduced me to RW (post Soft Machine of course)
Avatar 4:14am Bill Mac:

A Chic cover - not just a disco band
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:18am Fran:

Excellent Bill - the prototype Antony in one sense but that completely undersells his talent. I love the rediscovery records as championed by Lou Reed and others but the Savoy Jazz sessions take some beating. Please do play his cover of Over the Rainbow - that always cheers me up!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:18am Guido from Cologne:

Chic have deep roots and they're way more, even from political point of view. And Robert's covers since long offer something of an very own quality, long before genre-crossing covers became in fashion. Contortions disco is a good choice right now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:19am Fran:

Talking of Soft Machine there is what looks like a good classic period 4cd set about to be released and cheap too!
Avatar 4:22am Brian in UK:

Hello Fran, how is the motor?

Soft Machine's'Love Makes Sweet Music' Love it.

Bill, ever get downwind of Test Department?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:26am Guido from Cologne:

'Love Makes Sweet Music' plus even better the B-side is one of the best singles ever.

Is that 4CD-comp with special rarities or just a mix of the album tracks? Dunno, i've been introduced to soft machine by comps. But if it is about the Robert Whyat period , the albums are way too cohesive and work as a whole and are cheapos already.
Avatar 4:26am Sem Chumbo:

Hiya, Bill and all. Have not heard this in a long, time, Mann.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:30am Guido from Cologne:

Originally from "Frevo Rasgado" ...
... one of my own Top-5-ever albums beside Trout Mask, Beatles revolver, Wire 156 ...
Avatar 4:34am Brian in UK:

Guido, sounds odd but I discovered Revolver about fifteen years ago. Having bought Sgt Pepper when it came out and sold it by the end of the year. Revolver is a more complete album. That said, SP set a mark for albums and what was possible in forty minutes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:37am Fran:

Hi Brian
Motor now well again thanks - two new tyres on top of the exhaust though!

Test Dept - I went to Newcastle earlier this year to see a Test Dept sound and light/visual installation at Dunston Staithes which is a former coal loading dock on the Tyne - audience on a boat with Test Dept and some of the original striking miners from the soundtrack on board - quite a night!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:38am Fran:

Guido - i think it is mainly unreleased live material from the Wyatt period
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:39am Guido from Cologne:

Yep, we had that discussion in FaceBook Nowplaying group.

I discovered Revolver very late. Originally I preferred White Album.
Revolver was the unveiling of the true innovative forces of The Beatles: Sitars and tape experiments and psychedelic in full bloom bofere it was just a fashion. (Beatles co-invented Psychedelic Rock IMHO) And ... most density in song writing quality!!!
It is THE album! :-))
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:40am Guido from Cologne:

Avatar 4:42am Brian in UK:

Fran sounds testing and challenging.

Why has it remained unreleased? Very dubious, especially about 'bonus tracks'.
  4:46am marmalade kitty:

Good morning!
  4:48am KP:

Any room at the inn?
Avatar 4:48am Brian in UK:

Were the Flying Lizards one of the first bands to reconstruct pop songs? Like Robert did with I'm a Believer'.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:48am Guido from Cologne:

Often it is legal problems.

And tapes have a notorious habit to be locked away by fate, drowned between other stuff in badly organised archives and a certain refusal to be labeled decently. I was shocked to see this with my very own tapes happening.
Avatar 4:48am Bill Mac:

@Fran I don't recall do Test Department have an industrial vibe?
Avatar 4:49am Bill Mac:

KP Hey KP! Cmon in!
Hi Kitty! Sem! Fran! Did I miss anybody?
  4:49am jay/london:

Mmorning bill and all am on high speed train to kent trying to listen
Avatar 4:50am Brian in UK:

We are missing Jay.
Avatar 4:50am Brian in UK:

You bugger there you are.
Avatar 4:50am Bill Mac:

Hi Jay, I was just thinking of you. How's things? Looks like Brian was wondering bout you too.
  4:51am marmalade kitty:

If requests are still going? the seeds "fallin'" from future
Avatar 4:53am Brian in UK:

Guido often tapes are in someones attic or garage or stored down their underpants!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:54am Guido from Cologne:

You say it!
  4:56am KP:

I see psych era as creative peak. Sgt. pepper as No. 1 album of all time. Beggars Banquet. Byrds' 5d, I might give them a second with Sweetheart of the Rodeo cause it's a different group by then. Actually I'd take thst one. Tommy.
Avatar 4:58am Brian in UK:

KP Notorious is sublime and made under such extreme conditions. It is a minefield to start listing things.
  4:59am marmalade kitty:

I'm kinda with the Penguin but thankfully, there is always too much to chhose from
  4:59am marmalade kitty:

Hi kp! :)
  5:01am marmalade kitty:

just fallin
  5:03am marmalade kitty:

fallin, fallin down
  5:03am marmalade kitty:

Avatar 5:04am Bill Mac:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:07am Guido from Cologne:

@Brian & KP
I go for Notorious (the best is the re-issued CD version with all the extras)

But "Sgt. Pepper" appears to me more of an aftermath to "Revolver", even though veryobviously it was 'the ambitious procject' ... it appears as such ... Pepper is concerned about being up with the time, Revolver is ahead of it's time
  5:08am KP:

Blonde on Blonde. I love Satanic Majesty's. Can stones
  5:08am marmalade kitty:

I was eating a black forest gateu cake when i first heard this track dark psych cake dreamlike..
  5:09am marmalade kitty:

I see black cherries!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:10am Guido from Cologne:

Is it true that THE SEEDS' manager coined the phrase "FLOWER POWER"?
  5:16am M:

According to Wiki it was coined by Allen Ginsberg
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:18am Guido from Cologne:

I tent to believe Wiki, thanks M

Pretties' "S.F. Sorrow" is way better than a lot of the more common classics ... just sayin' ...
  5:19am KP:

Revolver to me has too much of the treacly Beatles, Taxman, for no one. Got to get you into my life. The fact that there are two versions further muddies waters
  5:23am KP:

Lennon though is at peak with Tomorrow Never Knows. In my rearview view, the Beatles are Lennon
  5:23am marmalade kitty:

I wouldn't include taxman in with the treacle, kp
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:25am Stanley:

What happened to Little Jimmy Scott tribute?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:26am Guido from Cologne:

Excuse me, I absolute ly love Taxman and Got To Get You Into My Live ... no filler just killer ...
  5:27am KP:

Hey Marmalade Kitty!
  5:28am marmalade kitty:

but for no one IS a bummer!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:33am Guido from Cologne:

... you actually make me trackcheck Revolver ...
Excuse me dear Marmelade Kitty:
"For No One" eclipses "She's Leaving Home" IMHO .
  5:34am KP:

Taxman, the sound is great but the song itself, the lyrics. Writing about money is so yech, and it appears to be the spiritual Harrison's favorite subject
Uh oh mr Heath. Ugh
  5:36am marmalade kitty:

thats the fab four for ya!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:36am Stanley:

Beatles were breadheads, man!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:37am Fran:

Brian - check out the Flying Lizards album called Top Ten Hits or similar (I have it but would have to dig it out) - weird pop!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:39am Stanley:

We lost Rik Mayall this week.
Another piece of my past falls away into the void.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:40am Guido from Cologne:

The lyrics are debatable and I'm not entirely agreed.
(I've got more problems with other songs, by DAF for instance.)

But Georges India-journey was after Revolver.
And Indian spiritualism doesn't condemn a good relation to money! (How could it? Think of Baghwan!) That's Christian school of ethics your tryin to make measures with.
  5:40am marmalade kitty:

living doll by the young ones? lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:40am Guido from Cologne:

... and the humor in Taxman is good ...
  5:41am KP:

I guess if one, Rodeo for the Byrds. I listen to it by far the most of any album. Other personal favorited are all from that era. LZ first album; jeff beck Truth, bloodwyn pig a head rings out. Buffalo Springfield are you experienced
  5:41am KP:

Hey it's getting late early
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:43am Fran:

Sorry all

Playing catch up here as I had to listen but do other things briefly

Test Dept - yes Bill industrial and also political
Soft Machine live stuff - I quite like the raiding of the archives if it isn't vastly expensive _ I think this is 4cds for around £15 on a decent label so the chances of some decent to possibly great live material are high.
Rik Mayall - good call - much missed and favourite sketches and phrases will entertain for weeks to come
The LJS tribute is a treat Bill
Avatar 5:43am Brian in UK:

I mentioned it earlier this week but my first single was The Young Ones by Harry Webb.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:44am Guido from Cologne:

Buffalo Springfield's second is top-notch and hardly known here in Germany. I do not know how about in UK.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:44am Stanley:

Is that the Harry Webb, I suspect it is, Brian?
Avatar 5:44am Bill Mac:

@Guido - I think about 'If you take a walk, I'll tax your feet" every time I get in the car - it's the next thing you'll hafta pay for

Loved his arrangers name though - Norrie Paramour.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:47am Guido from Cologne:

In Cologne there a not so many old private buildings.
But if you see some 18th century buidlings, you'll find buidlings walled up. That is because the French goverment rose taxes for windows! Would you believe ...
  5:48am KP:

Cream. fresh cream. So heroic
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:49am Guido from Cologne:

... sorry
... it meant "windows walled up because the French goverment rose taxes on windows"
Avatar 5:49am Looms:

@Guido: the French goverment still rises taxes for windows :(
