The Drummer Stream again extends a hearty “hee-ho” to the sultry sounds of Bill Mac & the Zzzzzzero Hour Revue, squatting in Studio C in place of Matt Fiveash today from the hours of 2-5pm. That’s 3 hours mates! Yippee!!

Thought the Brazilian crowd was very poor booing the French pole vaulter at the medal ceremony.

We need to do the raised bed thing, if only to make better use of space. Our carrots are tasty but pretty amusing to look at. The tomato tsunami is underway.

@Stanley Yep - mine probably is as well

@Jay - all leather and low slung guitars (and lots of spitting - yuk)

well stanley not at that gig, it was a very small place must have been about 30 of us
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:21pm Stanley:

Jay - mine must have been a bit later. The spitting phase only lasted a summer. as I remember.
Anyone heard of Karl Blau? i got tix to see him in a pub in Glasgow at the end of the month. I'm going on a hunch and a track played by Doug Schulkind

Tackhead are having a bit of a revival on WFMU.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:29pm Stanley:

I heard Tackhead a few days ago on Mark R's show. Just thought there was something afoot. (Or tacky underfoot?)
Avatar 3:37pm fred:

@Stanley: I only saw him play as part of Laura Veirs' touring band, but got a few of his Kelp records there (years ago). He seems eclectic to say the least, in a good way. I'd go

One of the Lennon Sisters?
Avatar 3:54pm Sem Chumbo:

Well, I still have an unopened Japanese pressing of The Wedding Album. After hearing Life with the Lions, I thought I would let my musical sensibilities age a few more decades.

Is it? I was gonna fact check it first. Sez it right on the label though
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:42pm melinda:

He's been mentioned on a couple of shows this week, that's where I heard.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:42pm Stanley:

Sem - The Basque country covers SW France and the NW part of Spain. The border hardly exists and they all speak the same language. Plenty good going down there. Excellent food, great beaches and I know one hellava bar in Hondarribia, if that helps.

Ah, it is good to know a world traveler. Thank you, Stanley.

Avatar 4:49pm Jeff:

How 'bout that...

5. Is it true that you're related to reggae singer/producer Derrick Harriott?

Uh-Huh......."Uncle" Derrick is a very talented cat. My whole family seems to be musically inclined on both sides. My mother was a great gospel singer and pianist, my Father is an accomplished percussionist and directs a large community choir as a hobby. My younger sister is an amazing Gospel, Jazz and Classical piano/singing prodigy. My Uncle Chester is a retired cabaret performer in the UK..my great uncle Joe Harriott is considered one of the finest Jazz musicians to have come out of the UK..his "Indo-Jazz Fusions" LP on Atlantic is absolutely stunning. I'm quite the under-achiever by comparison:)

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:52pm Stanley:

@Sem - I've got my sights on NYC early next year. If any of the gang want to meet me there, dinner's on me.
Avatar 4:55pm Sem Chumbo:

Leave Nova Scotia in the winter for New York? Boy that's one tough choice;-)
Avatar 4:56pm Bill Mac:

I'll be there for sure! Make sure you stop. You'll be welcomed like a conquering hero.
Avatar 4:57pm Sem Chumbo:

Been fun, Bill, and all. See ya next time, if the current charges are dropped.
Avatar 4:57pm Bill Mac:

Ladies & Gents, time to go again. It was awesome to see you all again... I'll be back Sunday after next. See ya!!!

Jeez that was a long sidetrack. Catch the archival reminiscences.
Avatar 7:59am Brian in UK:

The Mike Oldfield track was released as 'On Horseback' as a single. We were on Hergest Ridge a couple of years ago. It is on the England/Wales border.
