Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/11/16 9:41am Cecile:

Yes, it was with Abbath.
It was getting late, my friend hadn't eaten in like 20 hours, and he did a song from "I" right at the beginning, so I was ok with going early. But man, he did not spare on lighting, sound, tech, effects anything. It was a soccer stadium show in a club that holds 1500 max.

That was a surprisingly contemporary flavor of Everlys! (for, you know, probably a terribly un-contemporary definition of "contemporary").
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 4/11/16 11:24am Uncle Michael:

The Everlys had a better "hippie period" than most of their contemporaries.

UGH. This fucking song.

...which is to say that it's awesome, but it stings…

Contemporary is so yesterday's news today (but still pays my bills)

"her mouth was watery and wet" eeeew!

*this* fucking song!

I am imagining Jerry Reed singing this as we speak.

Best Buy™ and Bed, Bath and Beyond™?! Is this cat getting a promotional fee?

I was about to say, I'm surprised to hear Jesu on this show. But in fact, I don't think Jesu is on this side of this record, now that I'm hearing it. No trace of Jesu seems to be apparent in this song. This is a split single, right?
Avatar Mon. 4/11/16 11:32am Joe McG:

@Ike: No, they're on the whole record, as far as I can tell. Maybe not so much on this song, but there are only 2 songs on the album you can play on the radio.

Will Oldham on backing vox on this one. Mimi from Low is on another.

eastbound and down, we're listening to Yes in Zurich.
Avatar Mon. 4/11/16 11:34am Joe McG:

@josh: Yes, Low is on a cut, too.

New feature on Surface Noise: Devastating File.

Joe plays a bunch of songs which will each knock the legs out from under somebody in the listening audience, all in a row.

I wouldn't so callous as to say the FCC must die, but, you know, accidents do happen
Avatar Mon. 4/11/16 11:36am just dc pat or dcp-your choice:

man, this is one fucking sad show.
  Mon. 4/11/16 11:36am josh:

yeah. it's fantastic. drink it in!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/11/16 11:37am Ike:

That's a weird collaboration. Maybe the subtle background sounds in that final section of the song were Jesu? Jesu normally puts up a wall of noise, a bit a la MBV/Boris, but hey, branching out maybe.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 4/11/16 11:37am fred:

@Jeff: how is that different from Joe's regular show?
  Mon. 4/11/16 11:37am SeanG:

lovin this! thanks Joe
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/11/16 11:41am Ike:

@Fred, if the FCC dies, who's going to mail ineffectual notices of forfeiture and easily-paid small fines to pirate radio stations the interfere w/WFMU?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 4/11/16 11:45am Andrew Waterloo:

My introduction to the FCC was Pump Up the Volume. The men in yellow vans both circling and triangulating. Men of math and authoritarianism they were.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 4/11/16 11:45am fred:

@Ike: I hadn't thought of that. Accidents do happen, though, I hadn't thought that was a good thing
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/11/16 11:48am Cecile:

That movie was so hilarious. FCC policing was nearly at its low then. Not to mention the writing. But it had a couple of good songs.
  Mon. 4/11/16 11:50am Jeffy Jazz:

Beautiful wind down of the program!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 4/11/16 11:51am fred:

I actually liked the soundtrack, I think. It was such a long time ago

Great show, Joe. Heard whole thing on alt.side of street.
Avatar Mon. 4/11/16 11:54am Joe McG:

Many thanks, KP and Jeffy Jazz!

And thanks to everyone who listened and commented today. I appreciate your keeping me company, even when I get cranky.
