Bill, I'm a bit early but looking forward to some crullers (whatever the hell they are)
Avatar 2:52am Brian in UK:

Jeez Stanley, don't yer know what crullers are (quickly types into search engine). Eighteenth century pomade used by ladies to keep away the unpleasant street smells.
Mornin' Bill.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:06am Stanley:

Hi Brian. Great, Bill said he'd bring some along but maybe it was a typo and he meant curlers and we're going to be treated to a new hairdo!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:07am Stanley:

HI Bill, you there?
Avatar 3:09am Bill Mac:

Heyo Stanley! I R Here! Curlers? Not on this head - there's nothing to do!

Am I awake? Van Morrison sounds like Hank Marvin.
Avatar 3:11am Bill Mac:

I'm not sure what to make of Morrison-era Them. I know I like em more then 'classic' Van.

Yeah, Van. Another artiste I'm ambivalent about.

Morning Bill, so glad you're filling in this morning!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:33am pacific standard simon:

Hi Bill and all. Bill, you're no doubt thinking of the back cover of Burnt Weenie Sandwich, which had a cartoon balloon that said, "God, this is a tasty little sucker."
Avatar 3:33am Bill Mac:

Top of the mornin' Andrew! You're right on time!

Could be PSS - I think it's a cross between and a lame approximation of Sam Jackson Pulp Fiction quote .

I heard that Roy Estrada (the Spanish-cussing dude there) went to jail for child molesting. Sad, if true.
Avatar 3:41am Bill Mac:

I ran into the library as soon as FZ was mentioned. Only had to pose through the 40 something Zappa CDS we have in 30 seconds...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44am joeray:

@pss: I've heard the same story about Estrada. Sort of kills the ending of Illinois Enema Bandit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:47am pacific standard simon:

Some would say that "Illinois Enema Bandit" killed the ending of "Illinois Enema Bandit".
Avatar 3:48am coelacanth:

yes. and ONLY when it is being covered by someone else!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:49am Stanley:

There's a great Illinois Enema Bandit by Ray White out there
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:49am pacific standard simon:

Bill Mac be taking over the position of most valuable fill-in DJ, vacated a while back by Todd-o-phonic Todd.
Avatar 3:49am Brian in UK:

@andy is it true that Twisted Sister are happy for Trump to use one of their songs?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51am pacific standard simon:

This cover of "Red" actually seems fairly Zappa-esque.
Avatar 3:52am Brian in UK:

Is Momus a jock? (Scottish)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:55am Stanley:

Jocko Momo
  3:56am P-90:

Yo Bill and Zeros
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:57am pacific standard simon:

Bowie's "Here Comes The Night" was the first time I heard that song, too. Them didn't get much airplay in my area, although Van DID. "Mystic Eyes" is the best!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:59am Stanley:

Yeah man.
Avatar 4:00am Brian in UK:

Momus does a song on Hyacinths and Thistles by The 6ths. (A DJs nightmare to say) Great album and Stephin Merritt (writer of all the songs) credits Monica and Ken from the station on it.
Avatar 4:02am Brian in UK:

I knew you'd be surprised (in fake Zappa accent)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:05am pacific standard simon:

I'll have to email you a picture of Ratty hanging out on top of my 60-quart mixer at work.

Hiya Simon, thanks fer poppin in!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:12am pacific standard simon:

I'd love to hear this covered by Neil Young.
Avatar 4:13am Brian in UK:

Bill, you could do a whole show of Merritt songs and formats. Great songwriter.
Avatar 4:15am Bill Mac:

Just showcase the best of 69 Songs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:15am Stanley:

This is fun. Always loved a band that used a megaphone. ( well that's what it sounds like to me)

Hey P-90!!!!

Bill i will be listening but probably not posting inane comments any more this morning
so Thanks
and good to hear you again!
ciao, good rats.
Avatar 4:19am Andy in Berlin:

@Brian - Dee is letting him do it even though he doesn't agree with what he is saying. But as much as I know about it, "happy" would not be the word to use, no.
Avatar 4:20am Bill Mac:

Thanks for hangin', CC. See you next time...
Avatar 4:23am Andy in Berlin:

That being said, if you(or any UK listeners) are in the area of Henley-On-Thames, there is a special fan-organized showing of the Twisted movie THIS evening at 6:15pm at the Regal Picture House theater. (A very non-Trump experience, you can be sure.)
Avatar 4:23am Brian in UK:

Back to the deep coelacanth.
Avatar 4:26am Brian in UK:

Andy that is great. Henley on Thames is so La-de-dah. It will be a wonderful sight to see.

Mornin' all - Bill Mac and writing Humbug cards here on Sunday morning with wet and windy miserability outside.....well one bit of that is great!

Hello Fran are you putting stamps on them?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:29am Fran:

Loved the Either/Orchestra cover of Red - having planned ahead and bought a ticket for KC next September yesterday I have Fripp and Tonics on the brain!

Hey Fran! Anybody with the words Merry Christmas on his lips should be boiled in his own pudding - Scrooge, 1848.

I hope the TS fans turn up in all their glory and freak their fucking middle class asses.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:31am Fran:

Hi Stanley - Humbug!!!! Hi Brian - yes stamps this year. They retired the bullock drawn sledge which used to do my traditional northern Christmas post.

David Sutch used to live in Harrow not far from me. The fun went out of politics when he passed.

Screaming Lord Sutch gets my vote
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:33am pacific standard simon:

@Fran - It worked for me too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:33am Fran:

Bill - I think that's what our' deeply up his own' experimental celebrity chef Heston Blummenthal should do next year - boil himself in a branded supermarket pudding! I would also add our prime minister but allegedly he adds too much of a porky taste to dessert!

Hairy crust must!

The tenuous comp title winner this week.
Avatar 4:36am Bill Mac:

@Brian Now THAT should be a regular segment on the show - if there WAS a show that is...
Avatar 4:37am Brian in UK:

@Fran have you heard the latest 'Heston cloning.' It is also a small village in Wiltshire.
Avatar 4:38am Brian in UK:

Only just fed those poor chickens what sort of listeners am I.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:39am Stanley:

Sounds like some nightmarish teevee show along the lines of League of Gentleman
Avatar 4:39am Andy in Berlin:

@Brian - I'm relying on you for a report :)
@ Stanley - interestingly enough, in the US the distributor has put not one, but 3 asterixes in the name of the film - which, by the way, is We Are Twisted Fucking Sister! - while here in Germany the ratings board gave it an All Ages rating.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:39am Fran:

Ha! Yes Brian...........apparently the cost of a meal this year is actually that of a small Wiltshire village!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:43am Wynford Eagle:

Avatar 4:45am Brian in UK:

Hey Wynford, Just been to Wiltshire how is Dorset?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:45am Fran:

On the Jamaican theme Bill - Soul Jazz records over here have just released a lovely 3 disc set of early Coxsone Dodd productions from the early sixties. Lovely stuff!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:46am Wynford Eagle:

Georgie Fame is an English rhythm and blues and jazz singer, and keyboard player. The musician, who had a string of 1960s hits, is still a popular performer, now 72.....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:47am Stanley:

Andy - Henley on Thames is a great choice, home of Boris Johnson, Yahoos and all things bourgeois
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:48am joeray:

I liked when Karen Carpenter played the drums and sang!
Avatar 4:49am Brian in UK:

I never got past Close To You. After that it was downhill. Serious.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:49am Wynford Eagle:

@Brian in Uk - it's very blowy, but fresh and warm. I'm an ex city person so it's a big change for me being in a little village in Dorzet....tis slow, and quiet. Watcha doing in Wiltshire, is that home for you?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:50am pacific standard simon:

The Carpenters had a sort of lounge jazz thing going, without vocals. Georgie Fame is much loved by both Van Morrison and Elvis Costello. Shonen Knife is much loved by me.
Avatar 4:51am Brian in UK:

No, just playing names on the comments board. My abode is in Watford gateway to the north.

@Fran That one I heard of, but I don't have it, never actually heard it.
  5:07am Mark R:

No Brian, this is an alternate take from the "Highway 61 Session"--the drummer's name is Bobby Gregg.
Avatar 5:08am Brian in UK:

Thanks Mark. Mistaking it for the basement tapes.
  5:11am Mark R:

Bill I grew up in Detroit, and I totally remember Denny McClain doing these gigs around town wearing a nehru jacket. They tried to make him into some kind of renaissance man because he won 31 games AND played his cheesy organ. Hilarious.

  5:27am Mark R:

Yes IT IS THE SAME GUY!!! There's a whole conversation we can have about Denny McLain offline. He's been in prison a couple of times. (I'm on the Gab List, hit me up!)
