Unstuck in time, The Avant Ghetto wanders through heavy folk, pastoral noise, spiritual rock, harsh jazz and other dimly lit corners of the universe.

"Effluvium" an unpleasant or harmful odour or discharge? Nice

Morning, all.

Right on, Christian, welcome to the live scene

Good evening from the 7th Heaven. If anyone is taking bets, my money is on hearing some Neil Young before the show is over.
  Mon. 7/3/17 12:18am Greg:

Oh boy...we're gonna be in for a treat if you're already playing some Agitation Free. Can't wait to see what tracks become unveiled.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/3/17 12:22am Tome:

the archives , ( NONE compare to this place of course not even CLOSE ! ) 4/27/2015 live Neil could not have been done better !

There may also be a strict legal requirement that the Grateful Dead be heard on this show each week.

Ladies and gentlemen, your Dead has arrived!
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 7/3/17 12:41am Jeff Conklin:

Always better to HEAR Agitation Free than SEE it but that's alright ;)
  Mon. 7/3/17 12:42am zenkoan:

I watched all of the very lengthy Long Strange Trip doc last week. Well worth watching, though damn sad too to witness (again) Garcia's decline in plain sight...
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 7/3/17 12:43am Jennifer_PNW:

The complete annotated Grateful Dead lyrics by David Dodd notes that Hunter remembers the 1949 flood in Vanport, Washington while writing this song. Must be a typo, thought Vanport was in Oregon.

Always amazed at your encyclopedic knowledge of GD esoterica @Jennifer_PNW
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 7/3/17 12:51am Jennifer_PNW:

One more Hunter quote, "I followed this cat out to -- I believe it was Neptune -- and there were rainbows across Neptune, and cats marching across the rainbow."
  Mon. 7/3/17 12:51am Hippie Jesus:

@Tome - that NY show was the best!
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 7/3/17 12:51am Jennifer_PNW:

@ocean, no encyclopedic knowledge, just looking a a book from the library.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 7/3/17 12:51am Jeff Conklin:

Anybody have their Deadbase handy? Wondering if this was the only HCS > China Cat they ever did....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/3/17 12:54am Tome:

I only recall Europs '72 version this one is far better...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/3/17 12:55am Aitch:

We all want to see Jeff's back door one day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/3/17 12:58am Aitch:

I'd never heard any Dead until I chanced upon Jeff's old show Bring Out Your Dead a very long time ago. Been quite a ride
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Mon. 7/3/17 1:05am Guido from Cologne:

My original copy of Steamhammer / Montain is on Metronome (Sswedish label andr distributer on Brain Revords).
Following Discogs the Brain copis are from the early 2000s.

Hello Jeff!
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 7/3/17 1:06am tuner fish:

love this already
Avatar Mon. 7/3/17 1:08am JakeGould:

Hey! I don’t comment much here, but on vinyl… Yeah! I’m like 100% digital now but bought a basic turntable to listen to bargain vinyl when I can score it… But the irony of ironies? Someone in my building has a CB radio setup really close to me. So sometimes when I listen to vinyl, I hear the equivalent of the adults from “Peanuts” talking.

And this is despite me soldering capacitors in the diodes on the power supply; that helped lessen the interference but it still comes up.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 7/3/17 1:10am Jeff Conklin:

Records are fantastic. I love them, I will always buy them but I'm never spending more than 20 dollars on something I can easily hear elsewhere. But hey thats just me. That's crazy about the radio interference! Who uses CBs??
Avatar Mon. 7/3/17 1:12am JakeGould:

@JeffConklin: Who uses CBs? That’s what I said. I live in a weird part of Brooklyn where there are no antennas on the roof… But for this one guy’s CB antenna… And there are ex-cops in the neighborhood so it’s like their “cultural hobby” thing I cannot fight. Decent rent but shit…
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 7/3/17 1:13am Jeff Conklin:

Not gonna lie, I think its pretty cool this guy is using one hahaha.
  Mon. 7/3/17 1:16am zenkoan:

this is some hypnotic shit right here...in a good way

Got one on my boat, have to. Over.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 7/3/17 1:20am Jeff Conklin:

When a group of friends and I travelled up and down the East Coast seeing an American rock band in the 90s, we communicated between the two cars in the caravan via CB radios
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 7/3/17 1:20am Jennifer_PNW:

This is awesome, Jeff! The artwork on the bandcamp page is beautiful.
Avatar Mon. 7/3/17 1:23am JakeGould:

CBs are cool. But these dinks near me are as boring as hell. What I have made out is basically them just endlessly comparing notes on their setups and saying “One two three four… One two three four… One two three four…”

Comedy = tragedy + distance… So hey! Enjoy it.
  Mon. 7/3/17 1:23am Ronny G from JV:

This song was used in courage the cowardly dog years ago I think. I'm 80% sure
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/3/17 1:28am Aitch:

This one is awesome

Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Mon. 7/3/17 1:43am Fuzzy:

CB dinks 1-2-3-4ing each other and interfering with your electronics are probably running illegal overpowered setups. The FCC might be interested in checking them out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Mon. 7/3/17 1:45am Fuzzy:

Linear amps -- that's what they're playing with.
  Mon. 7/3/17 1:47am Mario:

Wow, Steamhammer's awesome!
Good morning Jeff & everybody

Enjoying the Tuluum Shimmering set.

Now it's starting to scare me....
  Mon. 7/3/17 1:56am Hippie Jesus:

Breaker Breaker 19 - Mr. Conklin, what's your handle? Mine was, King Cobra. My brothers: One-Hoppin Kangaroo : ) this was late 70's / early 80's. CB's and shortwave radios are still a thing.
Avatar Mon. 7/3/17 2:01am terribilia:

i might have to pause the show and play that entire song again

This Randy Bishop record is the most exciting reissue in years. Thanks for turning me on to it, Jeff!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/3/17 2:11am Aitch:

Loads of it too, will use if for mind-control experiments. tuluumshimmering.bandcamp.com

Nice tunes today, as usual. Love that Bronco...
Avatar Mon. 7/3/17 2:15am BEAVO:

The most recent Dave's pick is from Boston Garden 4/2/73 they do a great China/Rider and HCSS.
Avatar Mon. 7/3/17 2:26am BEAVO:

Steamhammer featured guitarists Martin Quittenton who went on to write Maggie May and You Wear it Well with Rod Stewart, and Martin Pugh of the short lived band Armageddon with The Yardbirds' Keith Relf and Captian Beyond drummer Bobby Caldwell.
  Mon. 7/3/17 2:27am Mark R.:

Roger McGuinn said in the old pass-the-hat days on the folk circuit, you never wanted to follow Richie, because he was so good, everybody would put everything they had in the hat for him, and there was nothing left for anyone else the rest of the night.
  Mon. 7/3/17 2:36am Mario:

A pretty cheap album this Willcox & Co...
Avatar Mon. 7/3/17 2:56am ocean:

Great show Jeff. Thanks for expanding the musical horizons!
