In New Mexico. Conklin is already cooking tonite. Pressure Cooker Blues. Oozing out the sides down the ceramic pattern and onto the counter. great opening.
  12:11am pbagz:

  12:12am pbagz:

Avatar 12:12am markesmithsr.:

where's conklin go from here? He's lost the horse. For the love of god, he's lost the horse.
  12:13am pbagz:

the horse jumped over the fucking fence
Avatar 12:13am AdamFromOldeKenzo:

Hello, thanks for posting that Appel album on twitter Jeff! It
so good, I've been listening to it a lot.
Avatar 12:14am markesmithsr.:

conklin you're banned from the preakness. you killed the poor thing.
Avatar 12:15am AdamFromOldeKenzo:

This is the water. And this is the well. Drink full and descend. The horse is the white of the eyes and dark within.
Avatar 12:17am Jeff Conklin:

Don't spook the horse...
Avatar 12:18am markesmithsr.:

pbagz has the sun roof open and is taking in the warm air and inhaling. I just know it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:25am fleep:

It's 49° F here, so good luck on that warm air
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:25am Tome:

love these guy, is like when NIck N played *Caravan* the other night , stuff I not heard in long time ..
Avatar 12:27am AdamFromOldeKenzo:

yeah I head that Caravan that Nick Name played too, it was good. I haven't listened to them much, listened to Embryo more...
Avatar 12:27am Jeff Conklin:

Christian Buchard from Embryo died this week :/
Avatar 12:28am AdamFromOldeKenzo:

dang, I didn't hear about that, RIP!
  12:29am Scots:

I Am The Light Of This World
Avatar 12:30am AdamFromOldeKenzo:

I really like that album Embryo did with No Neck Blues Band
Avatar 12:31am AdamFromOldeKenzo:

I also like every Embryo album I've heard, including Surfin', which starts off kind of funny. I like the whole thing now though.
Avatar 12:33am AdamFromOldeKenzo:

Also this song kicks ass. It's kind of what I wish the Dirty 3 sounded like more...
  12:34am pbagz:

the air was mighty nice today in LA. real windy yesterday. i saw a huge tumbleweed cars had to drive around in a busy intersection.
Avatar 12:34am Jeff Conklin:

This was recorded last night. All you europeans need to go see The Myrrors on this tour. Totally blew me away...
Avatar 12:36am AdamFromOldeKenzo:

are they from NYC?
  12:36am pbagz:

just dropped a bath bomb i got for free from a friend that did an interview at a bath bomb manufacturer
Avatar 12:39am AdamFromOldeKenzo:

ooh, looks like they're from Arizona, cool.Wish they'd play in Philly!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:40am sberger:

Evening all...that Myrrors track was great! This is the band from Arizona, right, with a few lp's out?
Avatar 12:40am AdamFromOldeKenzo:

I just got this Starbirthed download from ordering the tape...they had a 20% discount password for the real heads.
Avatar 12:40am markesmithsr.:

with this music as a soundtrack, you are living the life. mirrors from AZ.
Avatar 12:41am Jeff Conklin:

Don't know if they've played Philly. Last night was their first NYC show. IF heads buy their records maybe they'll come!
  12:44am MONEYBAG$:

do you think when George Clinton talked about "da bomb" he meant a bath bomb?
Avatar 12:45am Jeff Conklin:

"We want the (bath) bomb, we want to de-funk"
  12:45am Dom:

It was the first and only show The Myrrors have played in the northeast
Avatar 12:48am Jeff Conklin:

Dom coming in with the authoritative answer. Touring the US is a money-loser for great bands, unfortunately...
Avatar 12:49am markesmithsr.:

drop another pbagz. bliss out. Conklin throwing strikes out on the mound Yo batter, yo batter, yo batter.
  12:54am KP:

Pretty awesome, Jeff
Avatar 1:03am AdamFromOldeKenzo:

whoa, that Laraaji was great.
Avatar 1:08am AdamFromOldeKenzo:

I request you play the Amon Duul 2 song you were talking about on twitter!
  1:11am Agent Peter:

Kaptain Kopter?
Avatar 1:11am AdamFromOldeKenzo:

*the possible Myrrors cover of ADII that is...
Avatar 1:12am AdamFromOldeKenzo:

@agent peter I belive Kaptain Kopter was played an episode or two ago...it was great
Avatar 1:12am AdamFromOldeKenzo:

whoa this cover is nuts, I love it.
Avatar 1:13am AdamFromOldeKenzo:

If they ever do a movie of the Denis Johnson book Angels this song should be on the soundtrack

Hotttest of Tunas
  1:27am Mike tp:

squeeze that thing
  1:29am Agent Peter:

thanks adam
will check local listings
in my area
Avatar 1:30am AdamFromOldeKenzo:

in the Hal Hartley movie Simple Men (I think) there's this part where one of the men read this list of great guitar bands and it ends with "Hot Fucking Tuna"
  1:35am Agent Peter:

funniest thing I've ever heard
Avatar 1:35am Jeff Conklin:

10/12/68 Bob vocal improv
Avatar 1:39am AdamFromOldeKenzo:

It took me years after seeing that to realize Hot Tuna do rule. I think it might have been after hearing Water Song on Clay Pigeon's show...
  1:41am bbb:

Cool version of St. Stephen! Funny coincidence, around an hour ago I was looking at something about Vallejo, CA. I visited there once...beautiful little town outside of the Bay Area. Bet it must have been nice to have seen the Dead play there. Never heard of the Dream Bowl.
Avatar 1:41am Jeff Conklin:

You didn't just say you learned to love HT by mentioning another show on the show comment board of the tri-state area's biggest HT advocate under 66, did you?
  1:42am bbb:

Jeff's getting territorial again ;-)
  1:44am bbb:

found this online just now:
"Known Rock Shows at The Dream Bowl, Vallejo, CA
February 7-8, 1969 It's A Beautiful Day/Country Weather
February 14-15, 1969 Sons Of Champlin/Blues Helping
February 21-22, 1969 Grateful Dead/Dancing Food & Entertainment/Amber Wine
February 28-March 1 Santana/Sanpaku"
Avatar 1:44am AdamFromOldeKenzo:

ha ha...
Avatar 1:45am Jeff Conklin:

Wonder if that Country Weather set is sitting in Bear's archives. I bet it is...
Avatar 1:45am AdamFromOldeKenzo:

I think it was before your show was on regularly Jeff! Though I still think you and Clay Pigeon should get into a fight! Ha ha
  1:46am bbb:

Avatar 1:46am Jeff Conklin:

A fight??!! Never even met the man. We FMUers are a peaceful lot. Ain't no time to hate.
  1:47am Agent Peter:

partner up on pledge week
Avatar 1:47am AdamFromOldeKenzo:

Yeah, the idea of him getting into a fight with someone is ridiculous...he's such a sweetie
Avatar 1:48am Jeff Conklin:

No, thanks. Not interested in entering the Holland Tunnel anytime between the hours of 5am and 5pm
  1:48am Agent Peter:

clay & fabio was one for the time capsule
Avatar 1:49am Jeff Conklin:

I like to do the marathon shows with friends/people whose shows I'm familiar with. So get ready for me and Davison/Shrunken PLanet. Maybe I can drag him out late on a Sunday night...
Avatar 1:49am AdamFromOldeKenzo:

I'd like Clay to partner with Zoe for pledge drive time, I get ASMR from both of their voices.
  1:50am Agent Peter:

Bring back Chris M
Avatar 1:50am Jeff Conklin:

Not sure I want to know what that means. When's this Zoe on?
Avatar 1:51am AdamFromOldeKenzo:

She's on Saturdays 3-6 am.
Avatar 1:52am AdamFromOldeKenzo:

ASMR is this thing some people get from certain sounds or voices where it's like a spine tingle...

ha ha ha
Avatar 2:04am AdamFromOldeKenzo:

Also I got into Hot Tuna like 5 years ago...sorrry!
  2:05am bbb:

hahaha worst kind of date!
Avatar 2:05am AdamFromOldeKenzo:

And I got Hot Tuna and Wet Tuna mixed up, whoops...it's like if the date thought you were a different person maybe?
Avatar 2:15am Jeff Conklin:

Ha, that would be even worse
  2:39am Stefan:

Hi Jeff & listeners
Avatar 2:46am Brian in UK:

Hey Jeff. Early rising over here. Spirit's 'Rolling Stone is a wonderful take, as is the album.
Avatar 2:49am Jeff Conklin:

Yes, glad i got turned on to it. Hi, Stefan
Avatar 2:57am AdamFromOldeKenzo:
