Who isn’t dying this month?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/29/16 12:40am coelacanth:

Avatar Fri. 1/29/16 12:46am Tome:

bummer ! bit.ly...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/29/16 12:48am coelacanth:

ahh,one of my favorite airplane songs, Tome.
  Fri. 1/29/16 12:49am MrFab:

Diggin' the heavy sounds here in LA as I do the dishes. (Will try not to break any as I bang my head.)
Avatar Fri. 1/29/16 12:50am Tome:

when you think about it 50 years ago !! wow ... loved the 1st LP too , and Signe Anderson too .
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/29/16 12:51am coelacanth:

as am i Nick; and the ugly animal was excellent.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/29/16 12:54am Alejandroool:

the slide on this is great....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/29/16 12:58am coelacanth:

yeh,those first 5 albums. 'mostly excellent.
surrealistic pillow and volunteers were a huge part of my high-school daze, until punk took over!
...i rarely liked Slick's singing,but she wrote some great songs.
  Fri. 1/29/16 1:00am rw:

Hey!

I like After Bathing at Baxter's
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/29/16 1:00am JakeGould:

@coelacanth: The thing with Jefferson Airplane is they really, really, really overdid it during their “Starship” phase and it almost overwhelms everything else they did that was worth knowing/caring about. Heart almost went down that route as well, but never went as far as they did.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/29/16 1:01am coelacanth:

...yeah,50 years ago. 1965...people don't realise how groundbreaking it was then.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/29/16 1:05am coelacanth:

hey rw!
yeah,Jake. now i think about it,i was already into JA when volunteers was released, via my older brother; then lost track of them, probably because he didn't like "bark" or anything after.
but then i heard the starship stuff on the radio and 100% hated it immediately!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/29/16 1:06am JakeGould:

@coelacanth: I think there was one record exec or producer in the 1980s whose responsible for attempting to “revive” older bands in the 1980s with big hair and synths.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/29/16 1:10am coelacanth:

(...i must be mistaken AGAIN! i think it was c.'71-'72 that my brother got volunteers...but before 'starship came any way.)
...who was it Jake?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/29/16 1:11am ausmanx:

lovely to arrive and hear (unmistakeably) mr fripp. evening all...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/29/16 1:11am Alejandroool:

NN really enjoying the tunes - helping me get work done... on JA - think I'm too young to offer much input, but I obviously got into them at some point for however long/ whatever impact it may have had...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/29/16 1:16am coelacanth:

good timing ausmanx!

Aleja- i was too young to experience it as it hit; but a few years later was just old enough to understand the turmoil of the time, and what role this revolutionary music played in that.
-it blew my little mind! i remember very clearly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/29/16 1:17am Alejandroool:

man, this is dark sounding, and the dirty bass - love it. Should check out the full Live album
  Fri. 1/29/16 1:20am Clay:

Krankin' the Krimson on the TNP, baby! WTG Nick!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/29/16 1:27am coelacanth:

and ausmanx Thanks again! this weekend i'll listen to it.

Jake, forgive my ignorance but i don't know who you meant...i fairly successfully disengaged myself from mainstream and popular music by the early 80s,and didn't start paying attention again until around 1996- when my car could only get the most powerful stations, and i was with a woman who indulged in some mainstream stuff.
Avatar Fri. 1/29/16 1:29am Tome:

... "cool" jaZZ , when requested to play in the car in the 90's , oiy ... but good memories ,,
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/29/16 1:34am Alejandroool:

16 yrs! what would you have heard in 1996 on the most powerful stations at that time hmm
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/29/16 1:34am coelacanth:

yes. there's some music that i like that i probably never would have if not for someone else who i wanted to be open-minded for!
...a lot of those songs i didn't know were mainstream radio songs until years later! i thought she was turning me on to obscure underground music!
Avatar Fri. 1/29/16 1:36am Tome:

... there's now place like home,,, right here ,,
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/29/16 1:37am Alejandroool:

such a great sounding recording - excellent amount of reverb, great stereo mix...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/29/16 1:37am coelacanth:

Aleja, rage against the machine, s.t.p.,pearl jam,soul coughing,black crows....
....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/29/16 1:38am coelacanth:

this whole album was pretty amazing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/29/16 1:39am Alejandroool:

yes - CC, played some of that music in various parent's basements in 1996...hah
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/29/16 1:41am Dave Bombay:

That jefferson airplane track caught me off guard in a wonderful way!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/29/16 1:58am coelacanth:

hey Aleja, not to beat down a subject,but lest i contradict myself in the future and it looks like i'm fulla shit!... i want to say that that 16 years wasn't spent in a vacuum. i did buy "surfer rosa" when it came out,for instants; and got into nirvana in '92. there must be others i'm not recalling.
...so, were you playing in a band in 1996?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/29/16 2:07am Alejandroool:

aha no worries - hah nothing that would count, I was 15 yrs old in 1996
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/29/16 2:08am Alejandroool:

still even learning how to play an instrument I'm sure
  Fri. 1/29/16 2:12am rw:

Nick! Hate to do it but I'm cutting out early because my eyes hurt and I'm not getting any work done. Always dig your shows. I may have to listen to the remainder on my way to work tomorrow morning. Have a good week/weekend everybody!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/29/16 2:13am coelacanth:

okay. i completely forgot to tell you that that song is excellent!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/29/16 2:14am coelacanth:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/29/16 2:18am coelacanth:

A, you mentioned fugazi,so sure enough i thought of fugazi... i like fugazi- and i'm not sure i would've thought of it if you hadn't said it. so- "influenced by" but not mimicking= good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/29/16 2:25am coelacanth:

yes i need to check out too Nick. Thanks Great program!
ciao all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/29/16 2:25am Alejandroool:

well thx CC for checking it out. we are self aware about that, but not in a bad way, I try very little to describe music when involved in making it..
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/29/16 2:26am Alejandroool:

It'd be neat if someone could translate this whale talk and show us what they're saying.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/29/16 2:54am Alejandroool:

hopefully something useful
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/29/16 2:55am ausmanx:

the whale is asking if it can come into the FMU studio and do a live session...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/29/16 3:00am JakeGould:

@ausmanx: Be cool to adopt a WFMU whale.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/29/16 3:03am ausmanx:
