Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:04am Ken From Hyde Park:

Good morning, everyone. Is it my imagination or does "Let It Live" have some parts that are like "Pictures of Matchstick Men" from Staus Quo?
Avatar 9:05am PKNY:

@Ken - I was thinking the same thing...couldn't put my finger on what/who the vocals reminded me of, and you nailed it.
  9:07am Benny P:

Howdy people. Howdy Chris.

later Status Quo is vastly under-rated, also - great rock and roll

I am woefully ignorant of most of Queen's album cuts. From the sound of this, I need to get more familiar, epic stuff!

Good morning.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:14am Sue P.:

@ Pete L - no such thing as too much Hawkwind.
  9:17am Pete L:

I realized that when I was previewing my comment
  9:21am Pete L:

definitely such thing as too little Motorhead. GREAT rock show today Chris M

Ditto Motörhead. But HW comes first in Rev-Town.
Avatar 9:26am Chris M.:

what about Sam Gopal?
Avatar 9:28am Marcel M:

Knew it must've been Bill but kind of a different style than I've heard from him in a duo setting. Cool.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:30am sphere:

Man, I didn't know "And I Love Her" could sound so depressing.
Avatar 9:30am Rev. Turnip Druid:

Heard about Sam G for ages but never came across the material...
Avatar 9:30am northguineahills:

@Sphere: I was thinking the same thing.
Avatar 9:33am Chris M.:

@Rev. Turnip Druid: they played live on my show a while back. check the archives!
Avatar 9:34am Howard F:

wow, this sounds fantastic. never heard this track, and i've been listening to loaded for years.

Wow, that wasn't The Slits?
Avatar 9:37am Rev. Turnip Druid:

YAY. Thanks CM.
Will consider streaming that archive while streaming live (don't want to miss anything further) -- will that lead to schizophrenia? Or a peptic ulcer? Eye floaties?

I wonder if the Breckmans sing "Rich Girl" before or after "Tradition" at their Thanksgiving feast?

I do prefer the original champion.
Avatar 10:39am bobdoesthings:

@whosondephone - chris m played a different remix awhile back.. I think "soul edit remix" or something.. that one is my favorite "champion"
Avatar 10:41am Whosondephone:

Thanks for the heads up.

My Monday mornings miss Imaginary Radio, but now my radio thursdays are PERFECT. Like thursday night teevee when I was a kid.

Blinda: true enough. Thursday in the current schedule is bloody perfect, says I.
Avatar 10:47am Cecile:

so you have a new job, Ike? Is it going well?
  10:48am Blinda:

Oh shit it's like I'm back in the Wetlands on jungle night
  10:50am Ike:

Yeah, it's lovely. Much much bigger than previous employers. I won't say which company but you'd recognize the name. It's bit of a commute on various trains, but the perks, like healthy snacks, make it worthwhile.
Avatar 10:52am Cecile:

modeselecktor! Yay!
  10:52am Marie:

Hey, luvving this song! And, quel image! Saw PIL last night--they were fantastic.
Avatar 10:52am Cecile:

I am glad to hear that Ike. Change can be good.
  10:54am Blinda:

What other perks have they Ike? I work for a small company and am considering jumping ship for bigger...I like anti corporate environments but larger companies tend to have better benefits...
Avatar 10:54am Cecile:

marie, great to hear that.
Avatar 10:56am northguineahills:

Yeah, this Modeslektor is dope....
Avatar 11:00am Cecile:

where to get started with modeselektor?
Avatar 11:04am Chris M.:

@Cecile: you just got started!
  11:04am Ike:

I'll have to get back to you on that @Blinda... content management calls....
Avatar 11:07am Cecile:

I mean, I'd like to purchase an album or compact disc or MP3 with songs in a large quantity.
Avatar 11:07am Cecile:

It's nice to hear Kelis on a weird song, even if she's kind of muted.
  11:12am Marie:

Hi Cecile, I am guessing that you have seen PIL. Did you see them "back in the day"?
  11:13am Blinda:

Am I alone in thinking this is a dumb song, and never needs to be covered by anyone? It's OK if I am, I'm just wondering.
Avatar 11:14am Cecile:

no, never did, I'm sorry to day. Closest thing was seeing the Golden Palominos - some of those guys were in PIL Mark 2

I like this song, but I'm on the fence about this cover.
  11:15am Marie:

Yeah, I could see why a band would want to cover it--talking about the darkness within and all, but I know I have a high bar for covers.
  11:15am Marie:

Am I alone in thinking the Rolling Stones are overrated?
Avatar 11:17am northguineahills:

I don't think I appreciated the Stones until I was in my mid 20s. Overrated, yeah, but I still dig quite a bit of their stuff.
  11:18am Blinda:

@ Marie, I don't think so. But maybe when a band lasts so long they eventually have to disappoint you a bit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:18am Rich in Washington:

Am I alone in thinking that vocal fry thing female singers have been doing since the late 90s needs to stop?
Avatar 11:19am Cecile:


yeah, a little is good, but too much is tiring.
  11:19am Blinda:

@ Rich in Washington: if you are a middle aged man, you are definitely not alone in thinking that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:20am Sue P.:

@Marie - I think the Beatles are overrated.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:21am Sue P.:

(taking cover now)
  11:21am Marie:

@NGH--yeah that is about where I stand. And, I must admit, I'm not sure I have given their early albums full listens. They have really fit into the marketing of a "real" "rock and roll" band.
  11:22am Marie:

@ Sue P-- I have thought the same thing at times; right now I don't :>)
  11:23am Blinda:

I think the Who are overrated. I loved them so much when I was 12.
Avatar 11:24am Cecile:

I think it all started with Toni Braxton, and "unbreak my heart". Usually people would only throw a little bit in there in RnB songs, for a change up or contrast. But she sang it at the lowest range of her voice, which to me sounded kind of good. And I guess it sounded even better to everyone else. It's the case where a vocal mannerism turned into a whole widespread tic.

I love the Stones, but not everything they do. Still, Beggars Banquet is dang near perfect in my book.
Avatar 11:24am Cecile:

I meant to say "sang the whole song"
Avatar 11:25am Cecile:

and I never quite got the Who. I do really like "Odds and Sods" for some reason though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:25am sphere:

I'm good with the Stones for the most part, but I only like pre-Tommy Who and the psychedelic Beatles.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26am Sue P.:

This "overrated" discussion could easily descend into petty arguments and ridiculous music geekery, so I'm gonna forego further comment. (The Who are one of my all-time faves.)
Avatar 11:26am Cecile:

Sue P, it look me a long time to re-appreciate the Beatles. I'm no die-hard fan, but Rubber Soul and Revolver are still pretty spotless in my book.
Avatar 11:27am Cecile:

I think I had issues because our radio stations would play their worst songs over and over. And I cleaned out chicken fryers to "Magical Mystery Tour" for a summer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:27am Sue P.:

absolutely, i think the Beatles are a really, really good band. even with that, they are overrated becuz ppl see them as the "ultimate" or something. so...yeah, that's all i'm saying.
Avatar 11:28am Chris M.:

i hate the beatles.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:29am Sue P.:

love you to death, Chris M.
  11:30am Marie:

Hey, have the Stones done any Pepsi commercials yet? Who sponsors their "tours"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:31am Ken From Hyde Park:

One of my dormmates in college played the Beatles album with "Number 9" all the time. I didn't understand the attraction.
Avatar 11:31am northguineahills:

There are maybe 3 or 4 Who songs I like, but I never understood the hoopla.

Thanks Chris, gotta hop and skip out of here.
Avatar 11:33am Rev. Turnip Druid:

Somehow managed to reach my late 40s without knowing jack about stones or who. I was introduced to underground weird stuff way too young, & bypassed a lot of that RAWK history.
  11:38am Dean:

I have the misfortune of not having died before I got old, and I grew up not getting The Who. Beginning just a handful of years ago I get them. Not sure why. The Beatles have a ton of baggage, for sure. But I think if we could strip it all away, we would be left with a truly sui generis phenomenon. Not "ultimate" in the sense of "best," but quite special. They were in the right place at the right time and they ran with it in ways nobody could have predicted. When I listen to, say, recitals by Nikhil Banerjee, I realize that we have The Beatles to thank for helping to import classical Indian music to our Western pop sensibilities. It's pretty remarkable.
  11:38am Marie:

The Beatles White Album often wins over Beatle naysayers...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:39am Mike East:

I agree Beatles and Stones are overrated for the reasons Sue P mentioned. I love them both, but its only rock n roll. Still I try not to let other peoples overly high regard affect my enjoyment of them or anyone else for that matter.
Avatar 11:39am Cecile:

Sounds like Neurosedax
  11:40am Blinda:

My old bf and I used to talk about the difference in musical taste between folks who went through a "classic rock" phase and those who didn't. Surprisingly telling in some ways.
Avatar 11:40am tonyb:

i can hear chris gritting his teeth
up here on the 3rd floor
  11:44am Dean:

I want to ask, "Overrated as compared to what?" In his autobiography, Bill Bruford writes about his self-doubts as a musician. He views every day of his 40 years as a drummer as part of a process of development and refinement. But then he looks at the current lot of young drummers, whom he regards as having surpassed him technically in seemingly no time at all. In this respect, is he overrated? Took him decades to do what a new kid can crank out in a year or so? Is there more to it?
  11:49am Marie:

In my opinion, if you like pop, the Beatles are undeniably great.
Avatar 11:51am Cecile:

I think one of the Circle Jerks put it best in American Hardcore - "Fleetwood Mac were a great band, but there were other great bands beside them. But the radio stations only played them. So we got sick of it."
  11:52am Ice in Brooklyn:

Thanks for the last coupla hours. Def helped my day go by.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:52am Sue P.:

@Mike East, thank you. I think we are on the same wavelength.
  11:52am Dean:

...which tells me FM is overrated.

From the land of "If it's free, take two," I'm now standing in line out the door for complimentary lunch at my workplace. I may hit up the other cafeteria later if I don't fill up here.
  11:54am Dean:

No question, though: Shinichi Mori is overrated, too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:55am Sue P.:

Chris M., though, is underrated. For sure.
