Hi, Gaylord! I'm back at my Southern American homebase now
Avatar 5:07pm doca:

ops, South American
  5:07pm Mr C:

Gaylord...Just got turned on to Fabiano Do Nascimento, a guitarist who carries Baden Powell torch. On Stones Throw Records. Thought you might like him, if you weren't already aware. Great player.
Avatar 5:07pm doca:

Being there didn't improved my English, it seems.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:07pm Gaylord Fields:

@Doca: It was great meeting you, whether you are from Brazil or Tennessee!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:08pm Gaylord Fields:

@Mr C: Thanks for the tip! Anyone worth comparing to Baden Powell is worth checking out!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:09pm Gaylord Fields:

@Doca: We are all Americans in this hemisphere!
  5:10pm sugarwolf:

Hello my friends
Avatar 5:11pm doca:

@Gaylord: Hahah that's true!
@Mr C: There's a three or four LP compilation released in the 1980s called "Violão Brasileiro" which features music from Baden to Toquinho passing through Bola Sete and other guys on that tradition. It's great, though I can't find it here in my house neither on the internet to share more info

Greetings to the Gaylordained in every hemisphere.

I am in a cranky mood but I've got garlic knots so it's ok
Avatar 5:14pm doca:

@Gaylord: But it was great meeting WFMU people and going to the record fair. It confirmed all that I suspected was good about the station
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:16pm Guido from Cologne:

Hello Gaylord, Doca, everyone!
  5:17pm Mr C:

Do Nascimento is current...young guy

Heya Gaylord! Hi all!

@doca: Did you find Gary Sullivan? I told him you were eager to meet him.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:18pm Gaylord Fields:

Hello, @Guido from Cologne @V Priceless! Glad you could make it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:19pm Adrian in London:

Evening all from London…
Avatar 5:20pm doca:

Hi, @Guido!
@Gaylord: No! Couldn't find him in the end, he's not as famous as some other WFMU DJs...(pun intended)

Greetings, @Adrian in London!
Avatar 5:22pm glenn:

nicely nicely.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:23pm Gaylord Fields:

@glenn: What make Nick Nicely fascinating is that he is psychedelic without being retro.
Avatar 5:26pm glenn:

i'm okay with retro psychedelia, and the new fangled stuff too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:26pm Guido from Cologne:

nicely is in the shopping cart
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:27pm Gaylord Fields:

@glenn: Me, too, as this set may indicate.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:27pm Gaylord Fields:

@Guido: Good choice! It's a great collection!
Avatar 5:29pm glenn:

anyway, nicely nicely was a damon runyon character.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:29pm Gaylord Fields:

@glenn: Yes, he was.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:31pm Guido from Cologne:

saw some good psychedelic art yesterday

@Guido: In Germany, I presume?

Good afternoon/evening all!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:35pm Guido from Cologne:

unfortunately I do not remember the name and the galery web page is not up to date. it was stuff you needed minimum 10 minutes per picture to get an overview about what is actually shown. Manic kind of drawing
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:36pm Gaylord Fields:

@Revolution Rabbit Nov63: Thanks for joining the quasi-psychedelic party!
Avatar 5:37pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- my favorite kind
...U.S.ofA. such a kewl album.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:38pm Guido from Cologne:

I recently listened to The American Metaphysical Circus again. Can it be it is half brilliant and half forgetable? Or I simply do not get the lyrical content, satire etc ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:40pm Gaylord Fields:

The USA LP is half my favorite album and half self-indulgent hippie noise.
Avatar 5:40pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- price of an extraordinarily experimental age I think, Guido...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:40pm Gaylord Fields:

...and I wouldn't have it any other way.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:42pm Guido from Cologne:

the USA LP is 100% brilliant
I mean the Joseph Byrd double album.
@RRN63 somehow yes
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:43pm Gaylord Fields:

Oh, that record is silly.
  5:43pm moe:

great set of tunes, i'm seeing trails...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:43pm Gaylord Fields:

Perhaps Dorothy Moskowitz was the real genius.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:45pm Guido from Cologne:

OK, that is the info I needed. :-)

Why Dorothy?
I learned it wasn't Byrd's project alone
  5:47pm V Priceless:

Gotta get my hands on LaMonte McLemore's auto bio!
  5:51pm P-90:

RE: The USA LP (etc.)- I've been delving deeper into this particular period in American pop lately. There's a definite 1967-1968 style period; mostly not quite there in '66, evolving into other things by 69.
Avatar 5:55pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I even distinguish between Summer & Winter of Love...every year then notably distinct...
Avatar 5:57pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

(Psych just a bit before Prog is a thing)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:57pm Guido from Cologne:

I think I understand what P-90
but there are precursor and latecomers
both can be brilliant in their own way
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:59pm Guido from Cologne:

where does psych end and prog or heavy start.
not easy.
depending on dandy suits versus long hair look.
so to say
  6:00pm P-90:

@RR: Yes! And amazing how the Beatles kept coming back with albums that were different but managed to hit the zeitgeist in the bulls-eye.
Also: Sergio Mendes, Burt Bacharach, Herb Albert hugely influential on pop (not rock) in 67-68.
  6:00pm KP:

Making the miles go bye-bye
  6:01pm V Priceless:

@ P-90: if you've not explored it yet, I recommend The Assiciation's 'Birthday' LP from '68! Perfect psychedelic sunshine pop!
Avatar 6:01pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...it's odd & interesting: bubblegum emerging in those years, Proto-Metal, return to 'Earthier' stuff after Psych
...& a lot of 'classic' Garage Rawk was later than I think - retorgressive even in its' context...Most people who like Psych like Garage & the other way, & the overlap intrigues me...
'68 was notably Political & uneasy in a particular way...
  6:02pm V Priceless:

Association, that is!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:02pm Guido from Cologne:

consider interstellar overdrive originally started as a misinterpreted riff from "my little red book"
Avatar 6:03pm Faye:

wonderful show for this weather!!
  6:03pm P-90:

Agreed there's no clean line between psychedelic and prog. Prog was something psych bands in london just found their way to by the 70's.
Avatar 6:04pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Mick Farren: 'People called it 'Prog' because they didn't want to admit they were still taking drugs.'
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:05pm Guido from Cologne:

i love association's "pandora's golden heebie jeebies"
a masterwork!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:05pm Gaylord Fields:

@Faye: Thank you! I hope your day has been a lovely one!
  6:07pm P-90:

V Priceless: Oh yeah, The Association is huge in that period. Also Tom Jones is ascendent in 67-68, very much emerging from that particular period.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:07pm Guido from Cologne:

good quote RRN63
must keep this in mind
Avatar 6:08pm glenn:

guitar effects pedals. that is all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:11pm Guido from Cologne:

quite a few pedals did not exist yet
flanging/pasing was done manually with tape machines, produced random results and needed a lot of editing afterwards.
Avatar 6:11pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

All the physical technical equipment changed rapidly in the 60s - from 2-track recording to 16 in five years! - along w/ the drugs & everything else...
Avatar 6:12pm glenn:

yep. musicians LOVE being able to make weird noises.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:16pm Guido from Cologne:

Must deliver performance tomorrow
Must go to bed now
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:17pm Gaylord Fields:

G'night, Guido!
  6:17pm V Priceless:

What Guido said, except the going to bed part!
  6:18pm P-90:

Prog arguably a product of psych bands that had been doing a lot of improvisational jamming and went back a to their roots in more disciplined, structured pop songwriting. And very much originally a mainly London thing. (Yes at Marquee club etc.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:18pm Gaylord Fields:

@V Priceless: Aw, shucks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:19pm Andrew Waterloo:

@P-90, I've always thought of prog as rock taking on baroque and trying to be the legitimate art music that classical is.
  6:19pm P-90:

Gute nacht Guido von Cologne!
Avatar 6:22pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- yeah - Prog = Rawk 'taking itself seriously' as Art - & themselves as Musicians & Composers &tc. The real 'Concept' of 'Concept Albums' was the Medium itself - the Album as one thing & as Jim Morrison said replacing the painting or novel for this particular culture...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:24pm fleep:

Days of Future Passed damage.
Avatar 6:24pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Sgt. Pepper = the 'Classical' Music of 1967. I'm sold.
  6:28pm P-90:

Sgt Pepper = "anything goes" + hugely succesful = license to prog, for other bands afterward
Avatar 6:31pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Not everybody was Mozart in 'Classical' (early Romantic symphony) either.
  6:31pm P-90:

¡Viva Chicano Batman!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:32pm Gaylord Fields:

@p-90: One year later, the Beatles ran far away from what they wrought.
  6:35pm V Priceless:

Procol Harum - "In Held 'Twas in I" at 17 minutes or so, in '68, was pretty unheard of back then, too! Kind of a forgotten cornerstone track for how 'prog' music would evolve.
Avatar 6:39pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...Beatles pretty much ran away from The Beatles by then...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:40pm Gaylord Fields:

Quite true, @Revolution Rabbit Nov63.
  6:41pm P-90:

V priceless: Procol Harem was absolutely there at the dawn of prog, also Van der graf Generator was way ahead of their time, arguably the most "avant-" band at that time, they managed to anticipate early-mid 70's prog, mid-late 70's Bowie and Ferry, and even 80's dance-pop, at a very early stage of the game.
  6:42pm OC fan:

Thanx for another amazing show GF.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:44pm Gaylord Fields:

@OC fan: Like the Greek takeout cups say, it's my pleasure to serve you.
  6:44pm V Priceless:

P-90: good call on the VDGG!
  6:46pm Kevlicki:

Really enjoying this set Gaylord. Thanks for my Sunday eve zone out soundtrack
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:46pm Gaylord Fields:

Good to hear from you, @Kevlicki!
  6:49pm P-90:

Yeah, the Beatles ran far away from "Pepper", then soon ran in four different directions! But I submit that early McCartney solo songs ('medley-style" songs) like Uncle Albert/Sgt. Halsey are very proggy and again "enabled" prog-pop like Elton's "Funeral for a Friend/Love Lies Bleeding" and "Roundabout" by you-know-who, both longish multi-sectional songs that charted big-time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:50pm Gaylord Fields:

"Funeral for a Friend/Love Lies Bleeding" is so, so sublime!
  6:50pm P-90:

And directly influencedby Yes and Genesis, too.
Avatar 6:53pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

To the Prog-Haters - I do maintain that playing well & having ideas did not preclude making good records also ! (Sometimes.)
...I also maintain that the Ramones were Art - Pop Art of the highest order of Genius: very carefully Designed & extremely well-informed. (If ti's 'Art Rawk' - define 'Art'.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:55pm Gaylord Fields:

I'm taking off next week's show. In my stead will be Samantha, who is making her daytime debut.
  6:55pm P-90:

Also the "extended intro" version of "Sweet Jane" from R&R Animal ('74) is absolutely prog, "stealth prog" if you just don't associate "Lou" and "prog" at all...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:55pm Santos L Halper:

Wonderful show Gaylord. That Nitzsche was esp nice.

Prog haters? Perish the thought!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:57pm Gaylord Fields:

@Santos: Prog tends to hit and miss as much as any other genre. I don't get all the hatred myself.
Avatar 6:57pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- Thx GF ! Always extraordinary. Enjoy week off. Samantha ! great.
- Lou & Pop Art - obvious (*no* degrees of separation).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:57pm Gaylord Fields:

I'm black history, everyone! See you in two weeks! Be kind to Samantha.
  6:57pm P-90:

Thanks, Gaylord! Top-notch show, enjoy your week off...
  6:59pm P-90:

And fear not, Samatha's appearances are always warmly received!
