"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.)

Apparently Branca is "the combination of notes that are in harmony with each other due to the relationship between their frequencies."

Really been digging the Branca we've been hearing here. Sad that it's because of his passing.

It's ten to four pm and eighty degrees here. After having been out in the sun since noon when Clay went on, and more than a few pints in me (it's a long weekend here) this is seriously giving me heat stroke. I love it :)

National Xalph Appreciation Week

Is asking if Glenn Branca is Jazz some kind of new noise hipster meme?
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:06am

Day 2 of having Circle In The Sand by Belinda Carlisle stuck in my head. Maybe the heavy jazz rock will finally be the thing to dislodge it? It's like a bad case of the hiccups, I've tried everything.

The Best Friday Music.

Yeah, the song with the hidden Black Sabbath!

so i'm not the only one who hears 'sabbath bloody sabbath'...

"Spermarket received extensive college radio airplay in the United States and ranked as the number one record of the year by Northwestern University station WNUR.[8] Within a year of its release, Spermarket sold just over 1,200 copies and the label had paid the band a little more than $1,000 in royalties.[9] Liimanarina had hoped to tour the United States in 1997, but Drag City did not have the funds to support them at the time. The group broke up soon thereafter."
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:36am

Wait a minute, isn't this a cover of the John Mayer song of the same name?
Avatar 10:36am
John Allen:

The band's name was originally Yhteiskunnallisesti Puhtaat Munat ("socially fresh eggs") but they later shortened it to make themselves more marketable.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:37am

I definitely hear John Mayer shredding on the guitar in the background. In fact he has always been there.

Thank you, John, for the Glenn related play list and for playing him!
Heard him live often.
Your show is always great.
I like Clay ok in early am, but when you're next it is so...well you don't interrupt with junk bits.
(But I totally support Clay)

John Allen:

yknow Mary, when I segued into Jokerman here i thought to myself, am i being like Clay without the junk bits?
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 11:13am

is Bob Dylan jazz?

You just mentioned David Garland and your spinning make me think of a long missing aprt of my life - Tony Coulter...
Where is he now???????
Early evening where I am and the rain is coming and the winds are blowing and the lightening and thunder are coming from the south and we ran home from the park and we are eating apples. Wee Simon is drinking orange juice and I have a white wne... Clouds streaming past ... Thanks so for spinning.... Morphe y Simon

omg blegvad... golden palominos anyone?

@john allen. that blegvad track put me in mind of your Twisted Nerve comp/premium, which is a fave....

Blegvad: if not known P. Blegvad has done numerous winderful books for children of all ages ... Actually, just realized I am blending him with Tomi Ungerer - some are not for children under 57...
Andy the painter:

@morphe. tony c is on at noon (east coast US) on tuesdays, on the drummer stream. and archives....
