cool Grok! it's theUse, doing a live set (Mdurek on this here comments board)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:26pm Whosondephone:

That sounds an awful lot like MOSS technologies. :)
Avatar 4:27pm Cecile:

as it, this would make a great tv show theme. Sped up it would be WICKED house music.
Avatar 4:27pm Grok-o-matic:

wow, can't believe this is live. How many people are in this band? 10?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:29pm Ken From Hyde Park:

How often do people ask them "What's theUse?"
  4:29pm JakeGould:

How many robots are involved in the making of this fine, live performance?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:31pm Scott Williams:

1 dude and all his robots. His 1st album was called "What's the Use". he knew
Avatar 4:32pm Grok-o-matic:

Is this hardware/synth stuff or is it laptops and samplers?
Avatar 4:32pm Grok-o-matic:

can someone in the studio takes some pics and post them on the internet?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:34pm Scott Williams:

it's both, Grok: theremin, Moog, 2 Akai controllers and laptop. I'll post pics later, but here's a quick vid: www.facebook.com...
Avatar 4:34pm Mdurek:

yeah Grok !thanks all!! it's a combination... and some are hardware synths and human voices put into Ableton's Live's Sampler instrument.
  4:36pm BriJet:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:36pm PGB:

Big fan here. It's always a good balance of Theremin and synths.
Avatar 4:36pm Grok-o-matic:

Avatar 4:37pm Grok-o-matic:

Definitely let me know if you every are making it to Nashville to play gigs.
Avatar 4:38pm Mdurek:

aww thanks PGB! And @Grok it cud happen.. was in Asheville and Atlanta November... let's connect for sure
Avatar 4:38pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:39pm fred:

Whoever can play a theremin like it's an instrument and not a prop deserves devotion. So @Mdurek I'm risking back injury to bend in your approximate direction
  4:39pm Thursday Fernworthy:

Great track! Amazing vid w/ Jim Tuite if you have the time to check it

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:42pm Kat in Chicago:

Cool bleeps right here
  4:44pm JakeGould:

Naive connection, perhaps, but the sound of this stuff kind of reminds me of the Alan Jefferson “Galactic Nightmare” stuff that was just rereleased; very 1970s sci-fi inspired. bleep.com...

Nice performance!
Avatar 4:46pm Mdurek:

@fred thanks so much man! I got it from the late Richard Lainhart

Scott gets a 25% cut into perpetuity, thanks to that name-change advisement.

YAMAHA VSS-30s! They're brilliant.
Avatar 4:53pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

...25% of ZERO until the profits start rolling in.

WFMU is indeed that ONE glimmer of hope yes!

Ja!!! Capitalism usually often results in things like the deathless twinky as Michael Pollan would say (no disrespect to twinkie lovers)

Apologies for the burst of comment spam, but had to throw another one in here: groovy set. Cheers to MD, SW, and th'Goose... Lovely stuff.

@Mdurek: that's some serious name-dropping there, but you've been worthy of his trust. I think you'll stay so

thanks @fred!

Hey Scott and listeners! Got laid off on Friday so now I can listen pretty much all day!

so sorry to hear that Rhody Chris, hope we're keeping you good company

@RhodyChris: Hang in there. Genuine believer that if one door closes, another one opens. Take the the time to take care of yourself if you can.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:18pm northguineahills:

Always fun to find and old great band I've never heard before.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:19pm Rhody Chris:

Thanks Scott. I'm covered for now with my other income sources so I'm taking some time to put a big dent in the rest of my BS degree requirements. Getting my marathon swag on the same day put a positive spin on it though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:19pm fred:

@Mdurek: Thanks for your music. Now I'd be real grateful if you play in Paris, France, and I know about it beforehand. That doesn't sound likely
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:20pm Rhody Chris:

Thanks Jake. I'm giving myself a little break for sure. I wasn't too sad about losing the job because while I loved my job, I had no love for my employers. Once I did the math I realized I would be ok for a few months anyway.
Avatar 5:23pm Mdurek:

@fred I just played in Paris!!
Avatar 5:23pm Mdurek:

this isn't @fred from Pop Culture Record shop is it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:24pm Bronwyn Bishop:

You gotta love a show that opens with Alice Cooper
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:25pm Scott Williams:

Hiya Bronwyn!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:26pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hi Scott!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:27pm fred:

@Mdurek: nope, goes to show how the Paris scene is too fragmented. I never heard about your set, and there's almost nothing going on here these days. Where did you play?
Avatar 5:29pm Mdurek:

@fred... Le Motel! A small divey place but nice people.
Avatar 5:33pm Nikki in London:

freakin killer show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:37pm fred:

I've heard about it but never been there, weird, I know. Bimbo Tower (the best record shop in town) was nearby. I should try to get there, though from what I heard they're not going to let me in. I should try though, nothing to lose by now

Always adored the name Burnin' Red Ivanhoe..

I like this Gel Set. Does anyone know what Telepathe are doing? I seriously miss that band
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:45pm Scott Williams:

@fred, check the archives, Gel Set did a great live set on Liz Berg's show a couple years back (Stacian also on that bill)
Avatar 5:46pm Nikki in London:

who are Gel Set? I know that voice..
Avatar 5:47pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Is there a Tiki record?
man, I'd better get started...
I did get a bunch of field recordings from Hawai'i, but not much idea yet how to destroy it all. But ideas are brewing...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:47pm Scott Williams:

Gel Set's a gal named Laura Callier, outta Chicago I think. she makes great videos too. Moniker puts out her stuff
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:51pm fred:

@RTD: now you're making sense
Avatar 5:55pm Nikki in London:

Cool, thanks Scott - will check her out. Reminds me of Glass Candy I guess (a good thing, obviously)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:56pm Kat in Chicago:

@fred Telepathe just released a new (well, new-old) album and you can read/listen here: www.factmag.com...
