Listener comments!

  5:49pm vince:

That instrument sounds like that sound you hear in The Beatles "Baby, You're A Rick Man"....
  5:50pm vince:

..and, like the indian instrument used in George Harrison's "Wonderwall Music" album

I bought an otamatone, everyone thought it was weird.

Unfortunately I know a bunch of unimaginative people.

This Porest is brilliant.

I've been calling my dog RootyPoops for so long he's probably responding to it. Doubtless time to stop...

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:10pm People Like Us:

probably a good time to play that video on the left
  6:11pm vince:

Y'know it's about time to retake that poll for the most unwanted music.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:14pm People Like Us:

apparently it's World Yodel Day today, but I didn't know... Dan Bodah will make up for that so stay tuned for him when I'm done
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:15pm People Like Us:

not that I'm in anyway near done!
  6:15pm vince:

Another Negativland Cut!-------- Yeah!

Avatar 6:17pm litmuspie:

Take Stimmhorn for all your avant garde yodelling needs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:17pm People Like Us:

well they can yodel, yes
yes, like Stimmhorn!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:17pm People Like Us:

lots of avant yodellers
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:18pm People Like Us:

it's very nice being on between Scott and Dan's shows
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:18pm People Like Us:

imagine them making this track
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:19pm Webhamster Henry:

This is very stereo. for once I'm sitting in a wide stereo field!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:20pm People Like Us:

yes I think we forgot about stereo
got all into quad and forgot about stereo
then forgot about quad
Avatar 6:20pm litmuspie:

That soundslke a trumptonesque guitar
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:20pm fred:

What? No yodeling today? You can come close enough. Swinglargo could be tweaked near (one of my fave songs ever, until I heard Eve of Sunshine)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:20pm People Like Us:

it does!
Avatar 6:21pm dale:

i dipped my toe into octophonic recordings but the speaker budget was just too much.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:21pm People Like Us:

too late, Fred! Dan will make up for it... I play yodel all the time of course
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:23pm People Like Us:

listen for that Hands Across the Waterrrr....
  6:24pm vince:

I hear it...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:24pm People Like Us:

that ain't ME for once
  6:24pm vince:

the "ahhhhhhh"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:24pm People Like Us:

I'd have done it MUCH MORE
  6:24pm vince:

Of COURSE!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:25pm People Like Us:

I wonder if it was sneaky sampling
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:25pm People Like Us:

although the Beatles are not litigious historically
  6:26pm vince:

I think... they 'credit' it on the cD booklet
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:26pm fred:

I'm on vacation for a change, I usually listen to the archives -- irregularly -- and don't comment
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:26pm People Like Us:

oh really
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:26pm People Like Us:

oh hope you're having a good vacation
Avatar 6:26pm litmuspie:

You'd think ringo would be
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:26pm Kat in Chicago:

I read that they contacted Paul personally
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:27pm People Like Us:

really Kat? Wow
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:27pm Kat in Chicago:

They had trouble with the choir that sings "Come Together" on "The Noisy Eater" though. Not from Paul (and Yoko!), but from the choir. Almost didn't make it on the album.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:28pm People Like Us:

I'd never contact him (even though I love his music)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:28pm People Like Us:

the rowdy ruffian choir
  6:29pm vince:

HEY...I've been 'mentioned'!!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:29pm People Like Us:

Avatar 6:30pm litmuspie:

Matt Berry's podcast with Paul McCartney (voiced by Peter Serafinowicz) is a wonderful piece of cringe.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:31pm People Like Us:

Avatar 6:31pm litmuspie:

Ilo have a look
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:32pm Kat in Chicago:

This is fun
  6:32pm vince:

I agree
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:33pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hello. Pooey evening to you all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:33pm fred:

I was really pissed off when that fire in Paris ruined your show
  6:33pm vince:

good hello!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:34pm People Like Us:

they very impressively relocated though, eh
to a building that looks straight out of the film Brazil
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:36pm Michael 98145:

( btw, 'tis "Ronnie" Biggs' birthday )
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:37pm People Like Us:

"btw" ha ha

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:41pm fred:

I saw Matmos do this live on a boat, it was mind-blowing
Avatar 6:44pm northguineahills:

@Fred: I saw Matmos do this track at the same show Vicki played. Fond memories!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:44pm People Like Us:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:45pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Svantana!
  6:46pm vince:

Nice pokey flute there
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:46pm Kat in Chicago:

I wish I was in a place where I could sing along to this without getting fired or committed. Wait! Do I hear shittyflute?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:46pm melinda:

I never get tired of this song. Nice shittyflute augmentation.
  6:47pm vince:

It's scaring the cat, that's for sure
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:47pm fred:

Extra mind-fuck points: French 60's singer Christophe was right next to me at that show
  6:48pm vince:

I need to see People Like Us live!
  6:48pm mink:

don't... don't you want me.. reminds me of a 2 week French holiday where my friends parents only had one mix cassette.. :)
  6:48pm vince:

THAT'S AWESOME!
  6:49pm mink:

sounds like cows! I love it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:49pm Webhamster Henry:

Otomatone premium next Marathon!
Avatar 6:49pm litmuspie:

My cow avatar likes this
  6:49pm vince:

I like the sound of it, too...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:49pm Folsom:

I found my otamatone volume switch really doesn't do much, it does change the pitch a little.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:49pm People Like Us:

so hard to play it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:49pm Webhamster Henry:

That or a job interview at a Cocktail Bar.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:50pm Mister Dobalina:

Take On Me ... ShittyFlute is pretty intense...just heard for first time. People were asking if it could be purchased on iTunes.
  6:50pm vince:

4 WEEKS?!?!?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:50pm Webhamster Henry:

It's a short summer at WFMU this year.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:51pm Folsom:

I didn't go for the de-lux version, too much money, i think the volume works on that one
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:51pm People Like Us:

yes, very short summer, welcome
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:51pm Kat in Chicago:

short summer :(
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:51pm People Like Us:

yes they are expensive! I might need new batteries though
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:51pm fred:

a-ha + shittyflutte: a match made in whatever
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:53pm People Like Us:

the idea of a deluxe version of anything that sounds like an otamatone is hilarious
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:54pm Folsom:

The cheap one on amazon is only around $20, the deluxe was over $50.
  6:54pm el BO-Bo:

Is this show live....or Memorex?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:54pm People Like Us:

yes, I have the "cheap" one
  6:54pm vince:

Ok... I may get me one!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:54pm People Like Us:

you can get them on ebay
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:55pm People Like Us:

they are pretty much a stylophone
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:55pm People Like Us:

recorders are better for the bad job
  6:56pm vince:

My recorder is lost, in my many moves I've made.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:56pm People Like Us:

this hour went faster than usual
I have a new recorder - not as good as a "real" one but squeaks well enough
Avatar 6:57pm litmuspie:

The right tool for a bad job
Avatar 6:57pm litmuspie:

He got moves.
Avatar 6:57pm ironybread:

DAMMIT I’ve missed the entire show up to this point, so I have about a minute to run down the entire playlist so far and react encouragingly to everything. My positive reinforcement will commence after a brief interlude
Avatar 6:58pm ironybread:

DAMMIT whole playlist looks great
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:58pm People Like Us:

it's ok ironybread, you can hear it again once Becky timestamps it with her magic timestamper
Avatar 6:58pm litmuspie:

This show is bringing my birthday to a close. With style.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:59pm Folsom:

PLU should put out something like "Duet in C for shittyflute and otamatone"
  6:59pm vince:

Have a happy week everyone
  6:59pm Ike:

"...it's frightening the cat." Bwa ha ha ha.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:59pm melinda:
