"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

Funny, Gig Talk was talking about Sail Away last night.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:15am Ken From Hyde Park:

I hope to find someday that there's a Motörhead version of this.
Avatar 9:16am themutante:

That's hilarious!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:17am steveo:

tired of turnip cake again?
Avatar 9:19am Rev. Turnip Druid:

That would be cannibalism!
..or something.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:19am Rob (Jerzcity):

@ngh - i guess if we can say that Gig Talk was about anything, sail away was a thing
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:19am The Oscar:

A few years ago some punk label put out a gag announcement for a Record Store Day vinyl reissue of Pure Moods. I was legitimately tempted before I realized it was a joke.
Avatar 9:21am northguineahills:

@The Oscar: Someone needs to make that happen!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:29am tom from Glasgow:

this is awful, i love it
Avatar 9:30am themutante:

This is madness!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:32am tom from Glasgow:

the original Pure Moods was dope tbh, it went downhill with the 1997 reissue where they replaced Malcolm McLaren and Brian Eno with some dumb film scores and also the X-Files theme for some reason

My Heldon collection is now complete, thanks to a browse through the Wm. Berger LPs at the fair.

oops . The wrath of Ken is nigh.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:17am Kelly Jones:

Hi John Allen,
I love the description of your show, I read it through every time. And I really like this Shark Toys business. Keep up the good work.
Avatar 11:22am Marcel M:

I'm listening while packing up all my rekkids for a move...OY!

Hi John.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:24am Kelly Jones:

Marcel...just think of them like your children. You wish there were fewer of them and that you could leave them behind, but you can't.
Avatar 11:24am John Allen:

good luck with the move marcel
Avatar 11:25am Marcel M:

@Kelly: Hah! Too true..

Thanks John!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26am BronwynB:

@marcel: i just moved over the weekend and my dad was not thrilled by how goddamn heavy my record collection is. good luck!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:27am tom from Glasgow:

hoiking boxes of records up three flights of stairs is the worst shit in the world
Avatar 11:28am Chris from DC:

That's why I'm never moving again. Records.
Avatar 11:28am Rev. Turnip Druid:

Much solidarity, Marcel: For me it was last week. Much back-breaking, but all the vinyl is out of boxes and breathing regularly now. Kitchen can stay in boxes for another month. PRIORITIES, man...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:30am Kelly Jones:

I am loving this show like crazy pants, John. Just ordered the Shark Toys LP. And I am never moving again but the last time I moved I paid movers. It was less painful to listen to their complaints about my LP & CD collection than to family's.
Avatar 11:33am Marcel M:

@BronwynB: Ugh... I know they get so heavy. Thanks!

Kelly... we are also paying movers! I'm too old for this shit myself now! The older you get the more crap you have... This is def. the first move with like actual furniture and stuff my wife and I care about.

Hah, well done Rev!
Avatar 11:42am Polyus:

I love a meat parade!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:43am Kelly Jones:

Good luck Marcel... it'll be great once it's all done!
Avatar 11:43am Marcel M:

Thanks Kelly! Can't wait till its over!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:58am maestroso:

Great show JA, thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:00pm tom from Glasgow:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:00pm George of Troy:
