Good Morning Freeform Nation of the Station!!!
Avatar 9:06am Polyus:

Last couple of times I have seen AMT, they have actually trimmed this song down to about 15 minutes. I swear it used to be 45.
Avatar 9:07am Chris M.:

good morning everybody
Avatar 9:07am Chris from DC:

Yeah, I saw them do a long one like that at least once. It's kind of their Dark Star.
Avatar 9:08am Chris M.:

@Polyus: you're right about that. this is a staple of their live sets. in recent years they perform this with another song in the middle
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:10am pantz:

More like Drums/Space, but I like it. Good morning all.
Avatar 9:11am Chris from DC:

Yeah, I suppose it is. This is a real good version.
Avatar 9:13am Chris M.:

Nice Rolling Stones selection. Have not heard that in a while.
Avatar 9:45am Rev. Turnip Druid:

Avatar 9:45am Cecile:

Keith Tippett to me sounds like the most British of British names.
Avatar 9:49am Cecile:

Not meaning to request or dedicate anything but if you could play something that shakes it's fist at the sky, that would be great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:50am annie:

thanks for this chris, i was wondering what his music was like.
Avatar 9:50am Chris M.:

@Cecile: strong possibility of that happening.
@annie: this is actually pretty unusual for BPB.
Avatar 9:52am Chris M.:

Bonnie 'Prince' Billy was actually on this very show playing songs and talking to me! i still can't believe it happened but there's proof: www.wfmu.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:52am MD:

Copy Chris...Sry...Loving the set!!!
Avatar 9:53am Howard F:

Love this JDG song. Never heard this version, thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:53am MD:

Avatar 9:53am Chris M.:

@MD: thanks and please don't apologize :)
Avatar 9:53am Cecile:

thanks, Chris.

The Bonnie Prince BIlly interview was legendary.
Avatar 9:53am βrian:

Jimmie Dale certainly has a certain birdlike quality to his voice.
Avatar 9:54am coelacanth:

this is like the male counterpart to Iris Demint.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:54am annie:

i fell in love with the flatlanders long ago, got turned onto him by another fan..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:55am annie:

yes!! coe^
Avatar 9:55am coelacanth:

...and that means it's good.
Avatar 9:55am Cecile:

they're both out of the "high lonesome" sound of bluegrass
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:56am annie:

look at all the will oldman you had on that playlist!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:57am annie:

i'll have to listen to that, i loved him in "Matewan".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:58am MD:

J.A....3D!?!?! will it pop out of the screen and rip your eye out???
Avatar 9:58am βrian:

I was thinking more of a counterpart to Dolly Parton. They can both get their tremolo on.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:00am MD:

I Japan do Japanese Rock bands sing about being big in NY???
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:01am MD:

The song from the Titanic Movie???
Avatar 10:01am Jeff:

Pink Lady Lemonade not to be confused with Pink Lady and Jeff Lemonade.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:01am annie:

i've seen it, now i have to watch it again..
Avatar 10:02am Cecile:

this song puts me in an ominous mood anyway. Donavan is skeevy.
Avatar 10:05am Chris from DC:

Weird Al should do "Pink Lady and Jeff Lemonade".
Avatar 10:05am Cecile:

totem pole of losers!
Avatar 10:06am Marcel M:

WOWWWWW This Totem Pole of Losers is amazing holy shit.
Avatar 10:07am Cecile:

I have been reading a lot of ex-evangelical stuff just because and this stuff totally evokes them.
Avatar 10:07am Polyus:

This has to be one of the best band names of all time.

Avatar 10:09am Marcel M:

Avatar 10:09am Jeff:

Donovan usually sounds dorky at worst, but usually in a kind of charming way - I wonder if this play of Hurdy Gurdy Man sounded creepier in the shadow of knowing it'd been used as program music in serial-killer cinema.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:10am annie:

it did fit, jeff...
Avatar 10:10am Chris M.:

@Jeff: when you watch Zodiac, even though you know what's coming, when Hurdy Gurdy Man comes on it really sends shivers
Avatar 10:12am Cecile:

Donovan is like the skeevy church camp counselor who leaves a trail of jr high broken hearts in his wake.
Avatar 10:13am Polyus:

That basement scene in Zodiac, oh man.
Avatar 10:16am Cecile:

Speaking of David Fincher, I was watching the Tyler Perry mini-series on TLC, and I realized the lack of affect that Fincher gets through hundreds of takes with good actors, Perry gets by being a really bad director and writer. Confidential to Instagram hunk Brock O' Hurn: Flee! You actually have talent. Get acting lessons!
Avatar 10:16am Marcel M:

Damn this Executive Slacks is cool. I skipped over it in the new bin gonna have to dig into it next time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:19am annie:

camp counselors.... ... and recently-graduated teachers in junior high and high schools. to name a few.
Avatar 10:19am Chris from DC:

Oh hey, Coil
Avatar 10:19am Cecile:

exactly, annie. I hope I've ruined Donovan for a few people.
  10:20am llid:

that basement scene is like a mini horror movie in itself
Avatar 10:25am Cecile:

oh, what a lucky bug boy he was.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:26am Lewis:

very interesting - I am hearing strong Devo influences
Avatar 10:26am Marcel M:

Damn yo... this set tho.
Avatar 10:27am Cecile:

hey lewis!
Avatar 10:28am Howard F:

Thought this was the Go-Betweens?!!
  10:28am MZ:

oooo, maanam!
  10:29am Will:

Is that Units record from 1980?
Avatar 10:29am Chris M.:

my main Maanam
Avatar 10:31am Chris M.:

@Will yes but reissued last year
Avatar 10:32am Howard F:

Biegnij Razem Ze Mna has a strong resemblance to Karen by the Go-Betweens, just saying...
  10:36am Will:

It's a nugget if you dug it! And I'm diggin' all of it! Digging deep with Chris T!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:39am sphere:

wow. this is gorgeous. reminds me of the soundtrack from the original Cosmos with Carl Sagan.
  10:40am Brendan:

Good morning folks
  10:42am Brendan:

I slept in a little after last weeks Rave show

March of the Legion.
Avatar 10:48am Polyus:

Sorta Ka-Spel, at least from the other room.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:49am Ken From Hyde Park:

I am a bit bummed out that the 4-H camp if my youth is now abandoned. The property owner could rent it out to a production company where they could make a nice creepy movie.
Avatar 10:51am Chris M.:

@Ken From Hyde Park: i'm bummed that my childhood camp, Camp Arawak, finally closed. :(
  10:52am Brendan:

@Ken from HP i'll gladly do the soundtrack to the movie . I have an idea involving banjo and theremin.
  10:55am Corbo:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:55am Ken From Hyde Park:

@Chris M. - Raise a glass of milk to toast the shut-down camps of the kids.

Unreleased Coil sounds like a lot of potential.
Avatar 11:00am Cecile:

Avatar 11:00am Chris from DC:

They're also reissuing Ape of Naples soon I think.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:04am annie:

i'm still listening...

Avatar 11:19am cee:

wonder if anyone on board has caught the dead c live this summer? any thoughts? they did a bunch of dates out west in july and are now coming to the east coast
  11:20am a ghost:

this has always been my favorite song
  11:21am mc hammerpants:
