That High Llamas track made me think of Jim O'Rourke (e.g. Something Big)

High Llamas make me think of Brian Wilson -- probably that's a cliche, but.

Though the band (and songwriter) that most makes me think of Brian Wilson is Of Montreal

Explorers Club : www.facebook.com... - also do that Brian Wilson thang extremely well - maybe an earlier period? Heard 'em on Michael Shelley's...

Hey, John. Thanks for reminding me to play Tomita.

Speaking of Brian Wilson and YMO, give a listen to "Wilson" on Sketch Show's _Audio Sponge_
  Sun. 5/8/16 10:35pm John Davison:

Thanks for doing it!

i feel like ryuchi sakamoto was the breakout from YMO
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 5/8/16 10:40pm Scraps deSelby:

;-). I'm not talking about vocals (and harmonies), mostly; I'm talking about Wilson's instrumentation. [aphasia -- "instrumentation" is only an approximate word]
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 5/8/16 10:41pm Scraps deSelby:

Referring to "frequencies "
  Sun. 5/8/16 10:42pm duane:

ok
  Sun. 5/8/16 10:42pm John Davison:

Also re: YMO and Brian Wilson: recall that Van Dyke Parks produced Happy End's third (and self-titled) album:

They've performed together recently: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0eaNNnN2BT8

Fishing with John is the greatest. The first DVD I ever bought.
  Sun. 5/8/16 10:43pm duane:

wow that is cool. reminds me of my first jandek show.
  Sun. 5/8/16 10:44pm mark Flynnn:

I saw Laurie twice in the early 90's. At the time he was most famous for being in Jarmusch films.

I've seen many great sax players live, including Pharoah Sanders, and I consider Lurie one of the best ever.

I think the show was on ESPN in its early days. I did watch part of an episode. At the time it was a show on a network trying to find its voice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 5/8/16 10:46pm Andrew Waterloo:

There was only 6 or 8 episodes. It was put on out Criterion.
  Sun. 5/8/16 10:46pm Carmichael:

@scraps: you may be speaking of instrumental choices. Or instrument choices. "Why are you using a sleigh bell here?" "Why not?"

Funny you are mentioning “Fishing With John” since I just rematched “Down By Law” again last night. Great film. And John Lurie is a dork.
  Sun. 5/8/16 10:52pm duane:

i'm down by law and that's a fact
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 5/8/16 10:52pm Scraps deSelby:

Carmichael: unfortunately, I'm not talking about either. Sigh. I can't find the word. Since my stroke, sometimes I can't find the specific word.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 5/8/16 10:53pm Andrew Waterloo:

Fishing with John is the Fishing show for people who sort of like to fish but don't understand fishing shows.

My fave, the one with Dennis Hopper… They head out to Thailand to try and catch a giant squid… GOOD LUCK WITH THAT! www.youtube.com...

In the commentary the talk about how they got there and learned that there are no fish there so they had to come up with something to do.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 5/8/16 10:58pm Andrew Waterloo:

For the one with Jim Jarmusch they caught a lot but every time they reeled one in the camera crew were losing their lunch over the side of the boat.

The series earns it's way when Tom Waits puts that fish in his pants.

Half the fun of fishing is just being outside. Once in a while you even catch something...

  Sun. 5/8/16 11:02pm duane:

oh and dead man
  Sun. 5/8/16 11:02pm Carmichael:

I guess I was interpreting why I love Wilson. Odd choices of instruments, sudden key changes, multiple harmony mood swings ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 5/8/16 11:03pm JakeGould:

@redkayak: Men have problems just hanging out together, so we need to either get drunk, kill something or somehow watch someone else kill something to hang out…
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 5/8/16 11:03pm redkayak:

Anyway, fishing around here is dismal. Polluted water, too many people. It's why we invade Wisconsin periodically :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 5/8/16 11:04pm JakeGould:

@redkayak: Ha! That is exactly where I learned about the “joy” of ice fishing.

Townsend was one of the 1st pop musicians of the 60's that realized there was serious money to be made licensing songs he wrote. He's both a talented artist and a scumbag.

I even have one of her albums. I moved back from New York to Seattle so I can't see her, unfortunately

@DaveMandl: She’s also appeared with Louis C.K. in “Louie”… youtu.be...
Avatar Sun. 5/8/16 11:16pm Dave Mandl:

That's right. I think they met at P.S. 3 (elementary school), where they both had kids. My daughter went there too, and was in LCK's daughter's class.
  Sun. 5/8/16 11:16pm mark Flynnn:

I interviewed Ester shortly after Strangers In Paradise. She was the lead in a theatrical production her father wrote and directed. A very intense and beautiful woman.
