I think all club DJs should use human drummers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:47am coelacanth∅:

i like that track but i think it's a shame when an excellent drummer as Sly Dunbar chooses programed electronics instead.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:47am sphere:

all LPs must be spun continuously by humans as well.

Jagger might be a dick sometimes, but he often doesn't get the respect he should as a vocalist. He shines on this new album.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:54am coelacanth∅:

agreed. Jagger -dick, Amazing vocalist. 'probably not nearly as much of a dick as many others in the business though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:58am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Jagger let's face it - only Iggy comes close to challenging him as GreatestFrontmanEver (...Bowie in there close). Our great androgynous Shaman. A great singer, obviously. MuddyWaters: 'They took my Music - but they gave me my Name.' ...Wow!...Being MickJagger certainly not a job I could even understand - but being - ThuhBadBoyz - whatever the Stones do , it's like they get a pass - like it's their job to do it...Except: being boring. Don't do that...

FMU's not about requests for me - it's about getting turned on - but got any Jay Farrar in the bag?
...wull, BrianJones is a sore point - but, yeah...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:16am Brian in UK:

Steve, great to hear you filling-in and it is not for Jeffrey.

Quick note on drummers, all these talented musicians that play all the instruments on their records would do well to consider having a drummer as the only outside player. For balance and quality.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:18am coelacanth∅:

oh yeah, duh. Brian. i guess they were pretty brutal there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:20am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...otoh - the Brians & Syds & Moons - handfuls to say the least...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:20am coelacanth∅:

...and i never forgave them for what they did to the verve; but it's possible that was allen klein or some other industry douchebag.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:22am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...that too..as if 'Last Time' wasn't ripped from TheStaples or such...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:22am Brian in UK:

Mick sure is a business man. Did he have a best friend?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:23am coelacanth∅:

yes exactly! the beatles "borrowed" some riffs, but they sure's hell never sued any of the thousands that took from them either.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I'm sure many would attest to his humanity.Mick's Super♌Leo & that's that. Oh - the Fabs ended up in Kleinland too. They don't have to sue - no one even tries. But they were the NiceOnes...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26am Brian in UK:

Was it the Andrew Loog Oldham Orchestra that was sampled?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:27am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:29am coelacanth∅:

i think it was. i forget now but the way it was used it's barely recognisable, and they were given permission up front. then some publishing asshole decided they'd used "too much" of it or something.
100% unethical and it screwed the verve forever.
  11:30am Clïff in Prägůe:

Another ♌Leo here, I've actually got the same birthday as Mick Jagger
  11:31am Clïff in Prägůe:

Don't have his swagger though....

On the Duty of Civil Disobedience.

@Cliff, how are you doing in Prägůe?
  11:31am Stuart Rose:

I think we all agree that Steve needs a regular, or at least a semi-regular gig at FMU.
He's a master DJ the way he moves from grove to grove, modulating mood from set to set.
  11:34am Stuart Rose:

Hey, Coelacanth, who was the frontman who mentally and physically abused his bandmates?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:34am coelacanth∅:

i do agree with that
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:35am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Listen to 'BittersweetSymphony' & tell me you'd ever think 'Last Time'. Mick's got ☉Sun ☌Conjunct ♇Pluto - he's a collective power archetype, obviously. Pleased to meet you.
Dammit - you wish about every FMU-J was their own stream.

Hi Brian, unfortunately been having some health problems, will have to go back to the US soon for treatment. But it was pretty amazing here these 8 months, hoping I can visit a few more European cities before I go back
Avatar 11:39am Sem Chumbo:

Pretty great, right here, this Thile and Mehldau. Thanks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:39am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Oh Beefheart - that was a Cult. That's why it sounds like TheShaggs same time from opposite direction - its' own world...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:40am Brian in UK:

Cliff, that is a step back, but health is everything. So, no question.
Did you manged to see Mucha's Slav Epic exhibition at the National Gallery?
  11:43am Clïff in Prägůe:

I actually had this trippy dream the other night where I was flying over Prague and went to the Charles Bridge, and the statue of St. Wenceslas spoke to me and said, you're welcome back whenever you like as soon as you are able!

And yes! I did get to see the Slav Epic, it is monumental, I had to spend over 2 hours there wandering around to take it all in. Now I'm trying to figure out how to recreate it in VR (my current hobby)
  11:44am Dean:

Bix was an inspiration behind Ry Cooder's 1978 Jazz album, too.
  11:45am Dean:

Heh, and "Davenport Blues" was on Cooder's record!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:48am Brian in UK:

@Dean, I did a mix CD the other week and finished it off with Beiderbeck's Barnacle Bill. Great fun.
It's only me from over the sea,
I'm all lit up like a Christmas Tree.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:49am Brian in UK:

@Cliff the dream somehow sounds very Czech.
  11:50am Jack:

Steve, this was another great fill-in. Thanks for all the music, come back soon. I do listen to your archives, and I'll second that vote to put you (back) on the regular schedule. You do a great show.

Sweet stuff from start to finish,SK. Many thanks for an engaging selection of spins. See you somewhere here soon again, I hope.
  11:53am Stuart Rose:

Oh, yeah, the good, egomaniacal Captain.
Someone like Gary Lucas, though, was reverential but hardly a cult member. Maybe Van Vliet tamped down his dictatorial ways by then.
