Never noticed how much James Last sounds like Ted Lewis on that one...

Who's up for three hours of Hawkwind?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:10pm Rich in Washington:

I remember reading a bio on Lemmy from a british rock mag in the early 80s and thought 'Sam Gopal and The Rockin' Vicars' was one band.
  3:12pm Pete L:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:12pm Stevel:

I would neither insist upon, nor reject, three hours of Hawkwind.
  3:12pm JEDD XXperience:

Happy New Year Brother! We're listening from my sister's place in St Louis, your keeping me company while I paint her bathroom, HAHA!!!! We'll catch up soon, RAWK ON!!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:13pm Stevel:

...and this program transition is why I will always bow to the spirits that comprise WFMU.
Avatar 3:15pm MenfussMike:

now we know why Dianne did not play any Hawkwind.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:15pm crateslinger:

Ken from HP - You see a pattern too eh?
  3:16pm Dean:

A highlight of a trip to London was seeing the actual Mountain Grill in 1976.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:16pm Rory:

Here comes that sick bass part!
  3:17pm Pete L:

nice psychedelic saxophone too
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:17pm Stevel:

MenfussMike: The thought also crossed my mind. I thought I might hear some Hawkwind on Diane's show, but figured after the third Motorhead cut, we weren't heading in that direction.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:19pm Rory:

Dave Brock is 73 years old guys...so if Hawkwind comes to you're town DO NOT miss them. Could be you're last chance.
Avatar 3:20pm MenfussMike:

Saw Nik Turner a couple of years ago in Memphis. Great show
Avatar 3:21pm MenfussMike:

Now all I need is Stacia dancing on my 'pooter screen

Didn't Last die early this year?

June 9.
  3:23pm DaveinPA:

I just cracked open a fortune cookie and there was no piece of paper in it; what could this mean for the year to come?
  3:26pm Dean:

Hard to say, DaveinPA. You should consult tea leaves.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26pm Rich in Washington:

DaveinPA: No Future for me. No Future for you!
Avatar 3:26pm Cecile:

Avatar 3:33pm TehBadDr:

Yup, more Lemmy via Hawkwind, Figured Fabio would have these quied up.
Avatar 3:33pm PKNY:

Happy New Years, Fabio and everybody! Just got back home from visiting family, and I'm going clicky-star crazy with this Hawkwind-centric Lemmy tribute.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:35pm Rory:

I predict Dave will play the Rockin' Vickers later on his show.
  3:39pm DaveinPA:

I sat in an orgone accumulator once, in Minnesota.
  3:40pm DaveinPA:

I don't think it had the radioactive rocks in it, though.

@Cecile yu hu!
Avatar 3:46pm Cecile:

Avatar 3:47pm PKNY:

I love "Opa-Loka", but Lemmy apparently thought it was garbage. Might be the only place where I'd disagree with him.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:48pm Rory:

Not that much mention of Lemmy's death in the mainstream media. Just wait till Paul McCartney dies. Nothing else will be talked about in the news for a week.
  3:48pm DaveinPA:

Paul McCartney is still alive?
Avatar 3:49pm TehBadDr:

You're thinking of Abe Vagoda.
  3:51pm V Priceless:

Love this Gavin Bryers
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51pm Rich in Washington:

Abe Vigoda will be revealed to be Moorcock's Eternal Champion at the end of time
  3:52pm Dean:

I disagree, Rory. Lemmy was featured in, among others, the NYT, the Guardian, the Bay Area papers here. Actually, I was kind of surprised by the level of coverage. But yeah, McCartney will be another matter entirely.
  3:56pm Dean:

What a load of work an ellipsis would do in this title: Jesus' Blood Never Failed Me...Yet.
  3:57pm Pat Flynn:

Is this the 90s duet version with Waits towards the end?
  4:00pm Rory:

Dean, I don't read the NYT so I didn't see any of that. I must admit after looking this up I was wrong... a little :)
Avatar 4:01pm Fabio:

@ JeddXX - yeah man, we'll catch up in the new year. Happy painting!
  4:02pm Rory:

Happy New Year FMU heads. Gotta go now.
  4:03pm Rory:

The failure of '16 is almost upon us.
Avatar 4:04pm Hot Mess:

I'd rather hear this at midnight tonight than Auld Lang Blah.
Avatar 4:05pm TehBadDr:

This is rather creepy, yet oddly comforting.
Avatar 4:06pm Hot Mess:

DaveinPA: Your future is wide open.
  4:07pm Wilbur twinhorse:

Stop Dave please stop
  4:11pm Brainiac:

Can't we hear more Jesus' Blood ? Please?
Avatar 4:17pm ham:

this is cool.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:17pm Mutant:

I feel like I drank a bottle of cough syrup or something
  4:20pm Dean:

Sounds like Jesus' blood hasn't failed H.H. Wells, either.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:20pm Mutant:

In a good way, of course
Avatar 4:23pm nathaxn walker:

I totally missed all the Lemmy! But at least I showed up for the haze & gauze & twang & clatter!
  4:25pm Ryab:

Fabio your bed music is lovely today, what is it?
  4:28pm Brian in New Orleans...:

checking in from the Big Squeegee....
  4:29pm ScottC:

Just saw the trailer for chimes at midnight and it looks stupendous!!
Avatar 4:30pm Cecile:

I'd like to see the BIg Short. It explores themes that Adam McKay alluded to in The Other Guys. I kid you not.
  4:31pm Alex:

Douglas Sirk at Lincoln center.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:33pm Mutant:

I thought the Big Short was really well done. Makes a complex topic very understandable.
  4:36pm Matt:

The Mizoguchi playing at Lincoln Center the next week or so's really good, too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:37pm Parq:

Digging Gil. Still miss him.
  4:37pm Fredericks:

Fabio, hope you consider Lou Reed's "Underneath the Bottle." Happy New Year ya'll!
  4:39pm Wilbur twinhorse:

Cannot go wrong with GSH, thank you Mr. Fabio and Happy New Year to one and all. Maybe you should see "The Revenant"?
Avatar 4:49pm TehBadDr:

Read this a few years ago, about GSH in his final throws. Good journalism, but a sad story. www.newyorker.com...

Happy New Failure.

Avatar 4:52pm TehBadDr:

Heh, should I turn down the volume?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:54pm Ike:

So @Fabs, do you have a master list somewhere of songs w/dirty lady noises, or do you just know them all by heart?
Avatar 4:55pm TehBadDr:

Smarc15 chiming in with some hetero-phobia.
  4:57pm P-90:

Happy New Year, Fratello Fabio. And thanks for all the solid Thursday afternoon shows in 2015. Much appreciated, rock on.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:59pm Parq:

Ted, yeah, I read that piece too. Some shit.
  5:00pm Fffffryan:

@Fabio wot is that song behind you today? It is a sample from one of my favorite tunes.

Happy New Year of FAILURE!!!

WOW believe it or not -- do not think i have ever heard that version of "All Tomorrow's Parties" (hangs head in SHAME)

Yay Roxy!

'Kicking' is all covers - great.

speaking of Berlin -- wouldn't it be right about now that Einstürzende Neubauten would be ushering the New Year?
Avatar 5:21pm slugluv1313:

@ TBD -- you are absolutely right!
Avatar 5:22pm TehBadDr:

Yoko made good music? I woulda never guessed, well let's see how long she caterwauls.
  5:22pm Brainiac:

This is the ultimate failure. >Yoko<
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:24pm melinda:

Caterwaul is a good word.

Avatar 5:25pm Chris from DC:

I don't have a copy of Fly and will need to remedy that sometime.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:26pm melinda:

@Rev Rabbit: good ones. I was thinking Stained Sheets would also work, someone has probably used it already.
Avatar 5:26pm nathaxn walker:

Chris - Fly is one of her best!
  5:28pm wilbur twinhorse:

I had a vision that "Don't Worry..." was the new National Anthem, and then Roseanne came out to the pitcher's mound and did it while giving the finger to every orifice in sight!
  5:29pm Jeanne:

Yoko crying for her daughter, left behind with the former husband. Whatever happened to Kyoko?
Avatar 5:30pm glenn:

i kinda like season of glass, at least it's listenable.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:30pm steve:

i've missed Fabio every Thursday for the past 3-4 months cuz of work. goddam it is nice to hear STF live again. great selections as always.
Avatar 5:31pm Cecile:

She is married and has children.
She lived underground with her dad once she got back in the States. It took Yoko years to find her. They were estranged for a while, but I guess they have worked on mending their relationship.
Avatar 5:32pm slugluv1313:

thank you, Cecile -- i was wondering the same thing!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:32pm Parq:

Japanese gentlemen, stand up, please.
Avatar 5:34pm Cecile:

Avatar 5:35pm nathaxn walker:

Cecile & Jeanne - It does seem to be kind of a crazy story (which I don't know much about) in that Yoko had custody and then Kyoko's dad kind of abducted her and never returned her and kept her out of touch with Yoko for decades while he was involved in religious organization?
Avatar 5:36pm Cecile:

Yes, that's exactly it.
  5:36pm kyle:

an all time favorite- Computer Love!
Avatar 5:37pm TehBadDr:

Computer Love, you can find it now on failuremingle.com.
