Hello Kurt and listeners. A rare Friday evening at home for me, this show makes it OK

her saying it i think made me appreciate it that much more!

coel, you're right re: focus thing!

Chalky it is!

I don't think I had heard Tyshawn Sorey on piano before. Nice
Avatar 3:18pm Kurt Gottschalk:

it's actually cory smythe playing tyshaw's piece, but tyshawn is quite a nice pianist himself.
Avatar 3:18pm Kurt Gottschalk:

i should change it on the playlist but i can't remember if the rest of the trio eventually comes in.
Avatar 3:19pm Kurt Gottschalk:

yup, here they come...
Avatar 3:19pm Claw!:

Yo, whaddup, Fish??

Chalky Khan
Avatar 3:21pm Kurt Gottschalk:

funny thing is i've been exchanging messages with chalkie davis who did all the 2-tone photographs (the specials, etc.) for something i wrote but he spells it different so i guess he can't be mad.
Avatar 3:21pm Claw!:

V, I was telling Fish that I'm gonna incorporate you into my tall tales of how I got my eyebrow scar. I'm gonna start saying that you and me got into a fistfight over who likes Meat Loaf more.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:23pm coelacanth:

i'm glad i wont ever have to fight someone over that.
Avatar 3:23pm fred:

Very nice piece no matter who's playing, clicky-starred
Avatar 3:23pm V Priceless:

oook....food fight is more like it...maybe it was a bone-in piece of the meatloaf?
Avatar 3:25pm Claw!:

Ha! you shanked me in the face with a bone shard for Meat Loaf!
Avatar 3:25pm V Priceless:

BTW, I plead no (meatloaf) contest, for the record. Though I confess that 'meatloaf' IS a fun word!
Avatar 3:27pm Kurt Gottschalk:

meat loaf, 2 words, when referring to the singer, thank you.
Avatar 3:27pm Claw!:

It really is.
I don't really give a shit about Meat Loaf, myself, honestly. He's more of a nostalgia-trip for me.
Avatar 3:27pm northguineahills:

new name to me, love the piano, but for some reason, the double-bass isn't doing for me..... Maybe it's MN Giff's gif that's giving me a headache giving me that opinion. I have to say, kudos, MN Jeff, good work!
Avatar 3:27pm Claw!:

Preach, Kurt!
Avatar 3:27pm Kurt Gottschalk:

it's all about jim steinman.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28pm coelacanth:

he shoulda left the name open for a noise artist.
Avatar 3:28pm Kurt Gottschalk:

jim steinman?
  3:28pm doca:

Yesterday I was transfixed by this song and heart it twixe in a row. Thanks for playing it!
Avatar 3:29pm V Priceless:

for a failed English major, I am the worst speller on Earthe.
Avatar 3:30pm Kurt Gottschalk:

meat loaf ain't the kinda thing you learn in school, son.
Avatar 3:31pm Claw!:

Unless it's meat loaf day in the cafeteria...
Avatar 3:31pm Kurt Gottschalk:

fair point

Dio can you hear me ...

V, it's spelled "Earf."

I'm being Cageian by running the Reality Radio feed simultaneously with the WFMU stream.
Avatar 3:45pm fred:

@Webhamster Henry: another explanation is that you miss Kenzo's show as much as I do. Though maybe two streams isn't enough
Avatar 3:45pm Kurt Gottschalk:

i miss kenzo's show too.
Avatar 3:46pm Kurt Gottschalk:

here's the reality radio link: johncage.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:48pm Webhamster Henry:

I'm working on some more Cage inspired iPhone apps .. I hope to get them out this year! Among them , something like Imaginary Landscapes #14, but with internet streams.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:50pm Webhamster Henry:

or rather IL #4, sorry.
Avatar 3:52pm Kurt Gottschalk:

wow, for a second i really thought you knew about ten more imaginary landscapes!
Avatar 3:53pm glenn:

more republican wisdom. news.nationalpost.com...
  3:54pm Head East:

There's never been any reason.
  3:59pm Mark:

Glenn, that's the gun industry's latest tack--they're such feminists, you see.
Avatar 4:01pm glenn:

hmmm. what if the head of the n.r.a. was shot by a feminist?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:03pm Carmichael:

Heya Koit and listeners. Happy Friday.
Avatar 4:06pm Claw!:

omg, glenn.
That's just too good. I also like how the headline referred to her as being "under fire."
Avatar 4:07pm TDK60:

Rape is serious; I'm sure the Republican reactionaries have the answer. (no)
Avatar 4:11pm Claw!:

Also, according to her proposal, only "hot little girls" get raped. Because, duh - no one wants to rape an uggo.
Mental giants, these Republicans. *eyeroll*
  4:11pm stepchild:

Hi Kurt, all. QB label is Quakebasket
Avatar 4:14pm TDK60:

Republicans today make old ones like Eisenhower seem almost liberal. The ones today are almost fascist.
Avatar 4:16pm Cecile:

this is such an interesting interview
Avatar 4:17pm Claw!:

Yeah, tdk. When I say "these Republicans,' I mean this particular brand.
  4:18pm stepchild:

Or I'm wrong and it's the quartet's label. Yeah, I'm wrong. The other QB, Quakebasket, put out a disc recently of Cage's Williams Mix. Or I'm wrong about that too...
Avatar 4:19pm glenn:

it's the tea party. it's impossible to be a responsible republican, because the tea party will call you a commie.
Avatar 4:29pm Cecile:

Great song!
Avatar 4:30pm Claw!:

That's pretty much spot-on, glenn.
Avatar 4:31pm totallybiased:

I'm even younger...Blues Brothers. Belushi rocked it tho and Duck Dunne
Avatar 4:32pm Cecile:

I knew Ike and Tina's
I don't know how.
Avatar 4:32pm totallybiased:

Avatar 4:33pm JakeGould:

FWIW, I can take a crap on the Blues Brothers if I wanted to, but if it weren’t for them I wouldn’t have been exposed to the blues as a 12 year old.
Avatar 4:33pm TDK60:

Wow, I was just thinking about Adam and the Ants the other day, while in the shower. Great percussion.
Avatar 4:33pm totallybiased:

agreed, but belushi had a presence
Avatar 4:33pm JakeGould:

And by that same token, I am happy to have been 12 years old when Adam and the Ants came out.
Avatar 4:34pm Cecile:

I learned about Soul Man from them. And it led me to the Sam and Dave version. Which was way better.
Avatar 4:34pm Cecile:

blues bros were fun. Muddy Waters loved 'em.
Avatar 4:34pm JakeGould:

And I still love the Blues Brothers movie. It’s an amazing film.
Avatar 4:34pm totallybiased:

I was 10 maybe
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:35pm Carmichael:

Cecile, how cold is it in MN today? I heard on the radio waaaay below zero.
Avatar 4:35pm JakeGould:

@Cecicle: 100% correct on that. I like the Blues Brothers but they opened the door to the source material to me.
Avatar 4:35pm totallybiased:

It took me DECADES to put together Adam Ant into adamant. What wasn't I thinking?
Avatar 4:36pm Cecile:

it's actually not too bad. it was wicked yesterday -3 with a -27 windchill. I think it's about 18 with a -9 windchill now
Avatar 4:36pm Cecile:

and I might prefer their Rubber Biscuit to the original, it's more unhinged in a way.
Avatar 4:39pm rothwell:

dese qats is swingin'
Avatar 4:40pm TDK60:

I've heard that some Yemenis use metal trays for percussion.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:40pm Carmichael:

Rubber Biscuit fit Akyroyd to a tee. I can imagine him relentlessly rehearsing it to get every nuance of the vocal just so.
Avatar 4:41pm Cecile:

I remember being puzzled and then blown away by them when they first showed up on SNL
  4:44pm Clay Pidge:

My gateway to the blues was stumbling upon a cut-out Peter Green-era Fleetwood Mac 2-LP set at the Ben Franklin store when I was like 15 in rural Iowa circa 1973. It totally blew my mind. Great show Chalky! I have to tune out brother, but I love ya. Play something from The Elder!
Avatar 4:46pm Kurt Gottschalk:

tdk, yes, we heard copper tray percussion on that yemeni track in fact.
Avatar 4:51pm V Priceless:

whoa - this Hypercolor is cool!
  4:53pm Dud:

This is like Vernon Reid on Sanka.
Avatar 4:55pm Kurt Gottschalk:

haha. this is vernon reid. this is vernon reid on sanka. any questions?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:55pm common:

Avatar 4:59pm V Priceless:

is that sanka in one of those little plastic holder thingys with the paper cup insert, or in a full-blown ceramic mug?
Avatar 5:00pm 37:

just got here... that dither sounded great!!
Avatar 5:01pm JakeGould:

Sanka is a great way to quit coffee. One week of that and BOOM… You can’t drink that stuff anymore.
Avatar 5:05pm Cecile:

sanka was my gateway drug to coffee.
Avatar 5:15pm V Priceless:

Sanka Gateway = band name of the week
Avatar 5:17pm Mark Helsten:

This Immortality track goes well with this I am finding out:
Avatar 5:20pm Kurt Gottschalk:

ha! nice.
  5:21pm Spencer:

Firstly you have a great show. Secondly, first comment ever.
Would you mind giving me the name of the 'ants taking over the world' novel.
Avatar 5:22pm Cecile:

Wasn't "She" the movie it's based on?
Avatar 5:23pm Kurt Gottschalk:

aw, thanks spencer! welcome aboard!

it's called "mort(e)" published by soho press.
Avatar 5:23pm Cecile:

oh, that doesn't sound like the movie "She".
Avatar 5:24pm Cecile:

no, it's not "She", it's "Them!"
Avatar 5:25pm Kurt Gottschalk:

yeah, that movie fits the bill, cecile, but this book just came out in january.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:26pm Webhamster Henry:

"She" is based on "She" (H Rider Haggard). Not to be confused with "Her."
Avatar 5:27pm Cecile:

ah. got it.
Still wouldn't hurt to play "Giant Ants from Space" by Blondie, would it?

Henry, yeah, I got them mixed up. And of course there's the movie "It"
Avatar 5:30pm 37:

Avatar 5:33pm rothwell:

"Attack of the Giant Ants"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:38pm Webhamster Henry:

Or "Mant!" from "Matinee" www.imdb.com...
Avatar 5:42pm glenn:

i would pay big money for an audiobook of she, read by merle haggard.
Avatar 5:42pm Homestar Runner:

This track is rad. I feel like I'm exploring a secret cavern with my robot friend
Avatar 5:42pm Kurt Gottschalk:

totes, glenn.
Avatar 5:43pm Kurt Gottschalk:

the pianist is erik griswold who put out a solo cd i played a lot as well. he's pretty great.
Avatar 5:44pm Kurt Gottschalk:

i'll play some more of it!
Avatar 5:44pm glenn:

you know, at least 20 bucks.
Avatar 5:45pm Homestar Runner:

Nice thanks Kurt!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:48pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...as usual: steppin' in @ end - seat in the back - scanning program handout...

wait, where is this happening,? (I have a hard time understanding spoken words....)
Avatar 5:53pm Cecile:

bye, ya'll
  5:55pm V Priceless:

Cool show, Kurt! Thanks!
  5:56pm SeanG:

that Ginsberg Lion for Real album is great
