Prost!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 3:12pm Cliff:

I read a Lush interview once where they said they had a terrible time getting producers to listen to them cuz they were lumped in with all of the other shoegaze bands, and it wasn't until their last album that they actually got the sound they wanted.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 3:12pm Meghan:

Prost!!

hey, I didn't know Swervedriver put out an album last year. I liked the couple before they stopped recording.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 3:16pm Cliff:

I have no shoes on, I'll just have to stare at my bare feet then
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 3:16pm Meghan:

I agree.... I personally loved their early work vs that last album. It was such a drastic switch... took me a long time to warm up to it at all. Got my tickets to see them though!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 3:16pm Ike:

(That's not a request, that's just me making up words. Unless there IS a band called Spectrangulous. Somebody start one!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 3:17pm Meghan:

hehehe..... I must have been in this kind of mood this past week and week before.... weather influenced?

It would be amazing if there was a shoegaze band named Spectrangulous, sadly nothing shoes up on the Google

What would be wrong with a whole shoegaze show? Nothing, I say! Okay, okay, it's FMU, three hours of any one style is a lot. Never stopped the Good Doctor though....

Spectrangulous is not the worst name for a band.

@Cliff@3:42, good choice but I can outdo you on the FMU show recommendation front -- check out archives of Blurred & Obscured with J. Herweg, that's the haziest and... uh... glaziest.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 3:57pm Cliff:

Ack, and I temporarily turned off the stream for the 1st one to check on something. Oh well :)

@Cliff: “Lush” and “Ride” complained about the shoegazey sound of their first releases, released other stuff nobody cared about and then—at least in the case of “Ride”—decided to embrace their shoegazey sound again during reunion tours.

  Fri. 2/12/16 4:11pm Lyle:

Funny that you mention shoegaze. As some of you know, I was with the Kenton band for a time in the 50's. Now, Stan Kenton was known for being quite animated onstage. Too animated, some said, and some blamed Krupa for this, though Kenton was no hop-head. Oddly, circa '57, Kenton internalized, withdrew and became very stoic on the bandstand. No more choreographed leaps or sudden lunges towards the front row. (Oh, the crowds loved those!) - Instead, he either stared straight ahead or (you guessed it!) he stared at his shoes. I think it was the Davenport Advocate-Leader that first stated "Shoe-gazer Kenton Disappoints Crowd with Low-Key Performance." Was he the first? I'm not sure. But he certainly was a trendsetter, there's no doubt about that. We had a lot of fun back then.

(And I was born in '78 and the only alternative music I got to listen to when I was in high school was on a Saturday night program on our local college radio, so have some patience with me ok?)

The Baron Von Ohlen! Dear, Lord. His real name was Barry Olson. There's no doubt about it. Barry was a darn fine drummer, though, like Krupa he liked the wacky-tobacky. He was the first to use aluminum sticks. His first pair were actually made of iron, and after playing those for a year or two, he built-up these huge Popeye forearms! We laughed about that. The Baron is a fine record. I actually play on it. (you guessed ... 4th bone). That's me on side two doing a lot of what bone players call "blatting." That low-end, flatulent sound. It was a whole new thing back then. It would be years before Phil Bodner or James Pankow would get into blatting the way I did. Not to blow my own horn! Those were great sessions. Last I heard, Barry was the Assistant Manager of a Hinky Dinky in Crete, Nebraska.

Hey JakeGould, only TWO bands do not a musical genre make. You're nuts.

A Lyle show would be fantastic!

What's the maximum number of Dave's you've had on the chat boards Meghan? The other day Mayuko had 4 or 5. I have a vague recollection of you having a bunch more once or twice
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 4:35pm Cliff:

Cecile, I know, but he said "feh" to me
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 4:35pm Cliff:

Feh.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 4:36pm Meghan:

oh man... I don't know... but I know it was almost a bunch of Dave's..... where we had to give them all different last name letters.... maybe 6?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 4:36pm Cecile:

*shrugs shoulders* Ima not in a position to pick your battles for you ,Cliff. Have at it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 4:37pm Cliff:

Well, I'm a little calmer this afternoon then yesterday morning during Chris M.'s show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 4:37pm Dave L.B.:

...oh dad - we're all Dave-o...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 4:38pm Cecile:

that was a stressful morning.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 4:38pm Cliff:

And nobody's threatened to punch me in the throat yet, so that's good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 4:39pm Cliff:

Yeah, I don't know what was going on, I was just kidding around but it seemed pretty aggro with the others, huh?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 4:40pm listener james from westwood:

I met the amazing Ted Leonard for the first time yesterday and he was the bestest. So tough to leave at the end of the day and say goodbye to him.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 4:40pm coelacanth:

i went back to that show, and comment board too. getting there late i was oblivious to the reasons why there seemed to be a dark cloud hanging over it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 4:40pm Cliff:

To be fair, that one guy who wanted to drive 4 hours here to punch me in the throat was apparently going through benzo withdrawls, so I can understand that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 4:41pm Cliff:

coelcanth, I guess Chris M. was in a bad mood that day? Although the theme of his show is that he makes stuff up, so I wasn't sure.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 4:42pm Cliff:

But the end was good, everybody settled down and I got a lot of good advice from the other posters about buying a turntable.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 4:42pm coelacanth:

well, you did confess to being gullible!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 4:43pm coelacanth:

(referring to that "threat"!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 4:44pm Cliff:

I am gullible, but I can BS as well as anyone else. I don't own any firearms, for example.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 4:44pm Cliff:

Yeah, I knew benzo dude was just kidding around, but some of the others I wasn't so sure about!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 4:46pm Cliff:

Also, as you probably saw, I went back later and read the entire thing while listening to Doug Sahm's "It's Gonna Be Easy" on repeat. It was great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 4:48pm Linda Lee:

really lovely music today Meghan! thank you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 4:49pm Meghan:

thanks Linda!
  Fri. 2/12/16 4:50pm Lyle:

Bennies? Oh. yes. I remember those. We took them by the fistful in the Frank Chacksfield band. You had to! The music was so dull. This was at the dawn of the easy listening music era, and artists like Montovani, Peter Nero, Frank Purcell and their ilk were cleaning up. Frank desperately wanted in on the action. In the course of one rehearsal, all of the horns were muted, the drums were eliminated altogether, and Frank instructed us all to switch from our usual cardinal red tuxedos to new beige jumpsuits, which we hated (they itched!) I lasted about two months with Chacksfield. It was fun though, in its way.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 4:51pm Cliff:

Oh Lyle, please never stop posting here, my God
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 4:52pm coelacanth:

yeh Cliff it wasn't overtly hostile when i got there but there was a certain tension. ...then dr."certified audiophile" (HAHAHAHAHA!!!) came along to piss me off with his delusions about being more qualified than 1/2 the rest of us!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 4:53pm Cliff:

Never heard of Frank Chacksfield, but he has a wiki page where he's described as a "composer and conductor of popular light orchestral easy listening music". Story checks out again.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 4:55pm Cliff:

Oh yes, audiophile guy was recommending me some brand that starts out at $500 for a low end TT, I'd already said my budget was around $200. Just about to click buy on an Audio-Technica AT-LP120-USB for $219.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 4:55pm Dave L.B.:

Benzedrine & itchy jumpsuits.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 4:56pm Cliff:

Wait, bennies are amphetamines, not benzos? Yeah, that would make a lot more sense if you're playing easy-listening music.
Avatar Fri. 2/12/16 4:57pm CeeDubbles:

I would bring you cookies but the dough is frozen in the freezer and I have to pick Deb up at EWR at 5:45 pm.
Avatar Fri. 2/12/16 4:57pm still b/p:

Encountered my old low-end turntable the other day, a Glenburn 2155A purchased in 1974 or 75, in the attic while looking for something else -- with the same thought as always, "When I gonna pull this down and see if it works?"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 4:57pm Meghan:

awwwww, the thought that counts!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 4:58pm Cliff:

Hey Meghan, apologies if you're bothered by us commandeering your board to talk about another show, and casual drug use and such

Avatar Fri. 2/12/16 5:02pm Tome:

good stuff . Meghan and a nice surprise on this Friday Afternoon too !
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 5:03pm Cliff:

It was a weird mood yesterday on Chris M's show....I'm usually not as offensive myself as I was there, I dunno what was going on but everybody was egging each other on.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 5:03pm coelacanth:

still b/p do it now! the rubber parts are drying out and will eventually harden, then break. it needs to be used.

Thanks Tome and all! Hey there glenn!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 5:06pm Cliff:

glenn, I liked your one-liner yesterday morning, it made me laugh out loud.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 2/12/16 5:09pm Guido from Cologne:

Enjoying every bit of the show!
:-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 5:10pm Cliff:

Lyle, got any stories about the recording of Doug Sahm's "It's Gonna Be Easy"? Apparently Chris M had found a rare version where they were all on acid and played the song 12 times in a row without realizing it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 5:11pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

So - you has w/ you the 'oreos in ice cream' dawgie?

I do have my Oreo McFlurry pup next to me!
  Fri. 2/12/16 5:13pm Mark R.:

OK, so I've been enjoying your show (as I enjoy all your fill-ins), but I haven't had a chance to comment until now. First of all, that cover of "Sunshine of Your Love" was the greatest thing I've ever heard in my life! That bass sound was amazing. Point two: I'm pretty sure I used to work with the drummer of the Gories. I think. And finally, Protomartyr is from my old stomping grounds, Ann Arbor, and I'm so happy they're getting so much FMU love. I thought "The Agent Intellect" was one of the best albums of the year, IMHO. And that is all my commenting and I shall now return to delighted listening. Say hello to your most wonderful and excellent and friendly dog for me!
Avatar Fri. 2/12/16 5:14pm glenn:

which one liner was that?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 5:14pm Mark the Sardine:

Love this Gui Boratto track
Avatar Fri. 2/12/16 5:14pm still b/p:

You're right, coelacanth. Be very disappointing to behold it relatively unbattered and then discover elder-rubber failure.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 5:15pm Meghan:

ha! Thanks Mark! That is a mouth full!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 5:15pm Cliff:

It was something like, "What in the living fuck is wrong with all of you?"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 5:16pm Cliff:

Which just about summed up what was going on the first half of that show
  Fri. 2/12/16 5:18pm Lyle:

Cliff, I hope I have not given you or anyone the impression that I approve of recreational drug ingestion. This being said, as far as LDS is concerned, I do recall the time when the talented Toni Scotti sang "1-2-3" for a group of Marines in Iwakuni on a little package tour we were on. Tony always took pride in his handsome appearance, however, under the influence of the LDS, he forgot one very important thing ... his pants! Imagine the look on those Marines faces when Toni ran onstage fully unaware that he was only half-clad, singing ... "one, two, three, that's how elementary ... it's gonna be." The whole place erupted into one collective guffaw! Even Tony laughed when he realized what he'd done, and like a trooper, he finished the show, despite the cold breeze blowing in off the Seto Inland Sea.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 5:19pm Cliff:

You mean he was a Mormon, Lyle?
Avatar Fri. 2/12/16 5:19pm geezerette:

@ Lyle
And the Mormons were responsible?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 5:21pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Marines - 1st in, last out.
Avatar Fri. 2/12/16 5:21pm glenn:

speaking of drug ingestion, mets fans, one of your pitchers has just become the first player to receive a lifetime m.l.b. ban for steroids.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 5:21pm Cliff:

And I neither condone nor condemn recreational drug use, or the joining of religious groups with "interesting" beliefs. Having done/still doing plenty of both it would be hypocritical of me to do so.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 5:22pm Cliff:

Never heard of Tony Scotti either, but he is quite a handsome and well-dressed man on google image search (IMO). Story checks out again.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 5:24pm Cliff:

RevRabbit, HAHAHAHAHAA!!!!!! My dad (R.I.P.) was a sergeant in the USMC, he would've loved your zinger. And probably would've elaborated upon it at length.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 2/12/16 5:26pm Michael in Seattle:

( I have to comment that this has to be one of THE best stations in the known world -- and a much more entertaining forum than i usually stumble into on the InterWeb. )

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 2/12/16 5:28pm Michael in Seattle:

thankyou
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 5:29pm Cliff:

Good ol' Dad, he sure was an expert at precisely explaining how he wanted things done, just like my stepdad Pat (also R.I.P.) He also showed me how to properly screw apart any piece of machinery and put it back together without breaking it or losing any screws in the process. He was a helicopter mechanic in the Marine Corps, they trained him well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 5:32pm Cliff:

Served in Vietnam '66-'69, and wasn't treated well at all when he got back, had people spit at him and scream "BABYKILLER!!!" right in his face, he was always bitter about that but I don't blame him for it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 5:36pm Cliff:

Forgot to mention, his showing me how to properly take stuff apart and put it back together when I was a kid was what led to my current hobby of building custom computers.
  Fri. 2/12/16 5:37pm Lyle:

Please thank him for his service, Cliff. Someday I'll tell you about the time I was with Charro's band and we did a swing through Laos in the '80's. Played Euphonium on that tour! Time for a nap. Bless you kids.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 5:38pm Cliff:

I'll have to hold a seance to do that, Lyle. He died of cancer back in 1998, just after I turned 20 years old.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 5:38pm Cliff:

Still think of him almost every day since then.
  Fri. 2/12/16 5:39pm Lyle:

Well, I am sorry to hear that, but I am sure he lives on in your memories. You take care now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 5:39pm Cliff:

Take care Lyle, and I hope you didn't hit any landmines traveling through Laos in the 80's there!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 5:41pm Cliff:

Ugh, that's not really something I should be joking about.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 5:41pm northguineahills:

Off to do laundry, would listen w/ my phone, but my battery has been wonky, especially w/ the cold lately. Thanks Meghan, good to hear you again!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 5:43pm Cliff:

But yeah, thanks Lyle. By the way, I have an uncle named Lyle, he even spells it the same way you do.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/12/16 5:44pm Cliff:

Derp, what am I thinking, no he doesn't, he spells it Lyall. Gotta cut down on the recreational benzos some!
