"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.)

Skipping, or reremixed?

hello good morning did i miss the clay/ja duet?

Devin B.:


I’ve been wondering, is this remixed every week?
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:25am
Ken From Hyde Park:

@Karen - I was just composing a comment with the same question. It feels to me like some of the parts in the middle are different. One of life's mysteries.

@Ken, yes, there’re parts that sound very similar and parts that sound new. And the song is generally so complex that it’s hard to remember it entirely from week to week. But my fish and I enjoy it as we debate how different each week is.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:33am

JA: play a dub song and call it reggae. They'll never expect it.

This song is one of the ones where the lag between radio broadcast and device streaming enhances the music and vibe. :)

Missed last weeks pickup due to test, have many ordinance-breaking garbage bags for next week. Its a mess.
Regarding the pressure washer-a Simpson with a side mounted pump and Honda motor sound pretty good.

JA: my kids want to know. I don't know how to answer them. We haven't had the talk about "jazz" yet.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:16am

if you have to ask, it's jazz

You can tell it isn't really New Order by the haircut.

there you go Dave, the magical depth of album wing in the FMU music library
goyim in the am:

M.a.l. Is both a brilliant innovative guitarist and a bitter, angry crank; in a recent interview I heard on German radio, he claimed credit for Bowie‘s work with out guitarists, claiming Fripp, Belew, and Gabrels were all carefully instructed to copy his early 70s stuff. Great player with an axe to grind.

John Allen:

Goyim i think the flaw in the story is that Ohr took the time to send a response, rather they likely would have ignored if there was an actual theft of ideas
Mark Williams:

@goyim - what radio station was that on? We're talking about Daniel Malempre, right?

This rocket ship track is great! Cheers dude!
