Greatest western ever.

Mexican standoff!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27pm Andrew Waterloo:

love the production on this. Especially the fact that the piano sounds like it was recorded in a separate decade.
  3:28pm Dean:

Greatest Western? I'd say it wasn't the best, nor was it the worst. Nor the prettiest.
Avatar 3:30pm Claw!:

@Dean - I see what you did there
Avatar 3:30pm Chris from DC:

Your mileage may vary, of course.

@Claw! - Superlative!

I'm whistling along. Fellow Failures - Join me in a whistle chorus!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:04pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Good gravy...I still have "Whistleblowers" in my head from Diane's show.

i think said band was called "Grey"

those old BHS records still sound great
Avatar 4:11pm Claw!:

@Looms - Yesssss
I'm still whistling, despite being so *rudely* interrupted. (I'm looking at you, Fabio) ;)
  4:11pm Ross:

Yo I want to hear more about that venue
Avatar 4:11pm Jeff:

Oh, wow - the first time I saw They Might Be Giants it was at 8BC.

They were doing their thing with the papier-mâché puppets and giving away flexi-discs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:12pm adrian in mpls:

@Ken -- this happened to me last week with that song after Ken played it on his show. I listened to it on repeat over and over again.
  4:27pm Ulysses:

Great guitar!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:28pm common:

@sem: just found the whip! it was in the bathroom...for some reason.
Avatar 4:29pm johnforz:

ooh, This Heat. one of my all time favs

@yeti bob: thought that's what i heard...the line about cats. so good!
Avatar 4:32pm johnforz:

oh man, the way the guitar just deteriorates into noise at the end...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:33pm YETI BOB:

this is one of the darkest and most brilliant songs ever
Avatar 4:34pm johnforz:

Not Waving is another chiller on this album. Deceit has some of the greatest songs ever recorded as well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:35pm YETI BOB:

there's a great Peel Sessions version as well
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:42pm Guido from Cologne:

Aggree with yeti bob and johnforz.
Hello everyone!

Schickert's album was a tape only release in 1983
Avatar 4:51pm chocolate monk:

that first This Heat LP is timeless! third eye opener, pre post punk, pre lots of stuff!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:51pm YETI BOB:

This Heat were the bridge between prog and punk. Note that C. Hayward worked with Phil Manzanera in "Quiet Sun". (And he's made a lot of interesting records since the This Heat days)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:52pm YETI BOB:

fabio: if you are wrong, i don't want to be right
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:53pm common:

thanks for the great show - again - fabio!
  4:54pm Ray:

Hey Fabio. Play some Throbbing Gristle since u talk about them so much. Never heard u play them. How about Clock DVA!
  4:54pm Phillip.(Brooklyn):

Fabio? Not to hurt your feelings and all but that is why we listen to your show:)
Avatar 4:55pm Fabio:

Hey Dylan -- Agreed man! A Stone masterpiece!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:55pm Guido from Cologne:

Seen Hayward performing solo.
Agree with nearly everything said about This Heat.
Though i think Deceit is the better album as a whole, not to put the groundbreaking first one down .... and that Health & Effiency EP!!!
Avatar 5:00pm chocolate monk:

not comparing the two in sound, but I always make a connection with This Heat and Chrome,,, two bands in the midst of some other, bigger more popular musical event, but they just seemed to take there own path.. those 2nd and 3rd Chrome LPs still sound so far out and out of time!
Avatar 5:03pm johnforz:

Camberwell Now's LP The Ghost Trade is amazing as well. That was Hayward's band post this heat, and it sounds like a synthed up continuation of this heat. They definitely had a prog background (Hayward played in Gong as well as Quiet Sun), but always seemed to have a more punk, or anti-prog perspective to their music that made them so much better than the Canterbury bands... IMHO
Avatar 5:04pm johnforz:

I agree with Guido about Deceit! The first LP is great, no doubt. But Deceit is like a flawless expression from start to finish.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:06pm Guido from Cologne:

All i can say i listened to both, both were among my faves and i painstrikely missed as ope minded music during the rest of ghe 80ies. I did not understand how innovative and original they actually were, they were just among my faves. They stood all tests of time.

Avatar 5:06pm Claw!:

Avatar 5:07pm Claw!:

Did anyone else catch their 3-D tour?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:09pm Guido from Cologne:

Florian Schneider is last remaining original member.
  5:09pm Ulysses:

peaking of Throbbing Gristle, there's a nice little bio. of Genesis P. Orridge in Wikipedia. What a neat guy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:12pm Guido from Cologne:

A russian friend of mine was overly annoyed about the entrance fees to the Kraftwerk shows. I told him to forget about it and keep them in memory the way he used to love them.
Avatar 5:16pm Claw!:

Yeah, Kraftwerk was definitely pricey. Luckily, I got the tickets comped through my job. They're a weird band to see live, though. They just stand there the whole time. It's kind of funny when you think about it and compare it to other shows. But damn, if it didn't get hella danceable!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:24pm steve:

a buddy insisted she heard Kraftwerk make mistakes at a recent live gig, inferring they must actually be doing... something... live.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:27pm Guido from Cologne:

Good info steve!
The Kraftwerk gigs were as"liveless" in the mid 70ies. I remember some older guys recommending never to go to their shows when iwas about to become a fan.
Avatar 5:28pm chocolate monk:

autobahn first
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:28pm Guido from Cologne:

Autobahn started it!
Avatar 5:28pm chocolate monk:

guess autobahn was their first freak hit in the states. just reading that Wolfgang bio.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:30pm Guido from Cologne:

Ooooh ... Wolfgang got angry reviews over here.
How is it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:34pm Guido from Cologne:

Advantage of soccer world cup is i canplay this show pretty loud on the balcony at 23:30 AM ... hehehe ...
  5:35pm Phillip.(Brooklyn):

Fabio? What is this "radio bordcast"
  5:35pm Phillip.(Brooklyn):

I have the iPhone app
  5:36pm Phillip.(Brooklyn):

In the "streams" there is a listing for "radio boredcast"

Sounded really weird until I noticed that it was spelled wrong, but I like it it's like negativeland with some music
