A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

Thor's Day.
Avatar 9:06am Trouble:

today's image is by my soon to be arriving guest: michael sloan. It's depicting a harry partch orchestra event and it was harry's birthday last week, so it seemed fitting

@ Neanderthal Head
Thor's Day indeed

Thursday is the drunkard's Friday... or was that Monday

Great start!

Looking forward to a very Partchian Thor's Day.

Morning Trouble & all. Feeling this synth sisters track!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:10am Adrian in London:

Hello from the surface of the sun, otherwise known as London
Avatar 9:11am northguineahills:

we need more sisters in synth! (my wife the last few years has dove head first in the synth-acousitecology, it's never too late [she's a bit younger then I, but you get the picture])
Avatar 9:11am Lixiviated Life:

... ok I'll be quite now.
Thanks for the indulgence
Avatar 9:11am Neanderthal Head:

What does one do on Thor's Day so as to distinguish it from other days?
Avatar 9:12am northguineahills:

oh boy, Harry Partch later, I know Irwin will be intrigued!
Avatar 9:13am northguineahills:

(First was exposed to Harry Partch via an MTV short [mind was forever blown])
Avatar 9:13am Lixiviated Life:

apparently one indulges in a sort of Partchian synth-acousitecology on Thor's Day.
(sorry, I'll be quite starting again now)
Avatar 9:14am northguineahills:

I need to stop coining words, it's probably not my forte....
Avatar 9:14am Neanderthal Head:

True. I've heard nothing like this all week.
Avatar 9:15am Lixiviated Life:

Correction: I'll be quiet (not quite).
Although I might quite not be quiet the entire time.

hi everybody
Avatar 9:16am Neanderthal Head:

Be (not) quiet.

@Neanderthal Head
Yes and that as well

Good morning, Trouble and friends. Such a lovely set so far, especially enjoying "amor de dias" which I believe translates to "Love the dias".
Avatar 9:19am themutante:

Sounded like Juana Molina.

I keep trying to go out to the market but you keep playing great songs and I'm stuck to my desk. Play something terrible next please! I have cheese to buy!
Avatar 9:21am Neanderthal Head:

This set is really hitting my sweet spot. All praise on this Day of Thor.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:21am Webhamster Henry:

They are all wearing goggles to read Partch's tablature.
You could play a little Partch today - Ring Around the Moon, Barstow, The Letter, U.S. Highball, Yankee Doodle Fantasy for the 4th of July...

That's the Liverpool anthem. My club.

I'm not a Liverpool supporter but "You'll Never Walk Alone" is more than a soccer chant

@ Agent Peter - Honestly, I never really figured out what song it was until now (and I had a tape of Meddle while I was in school).
Avatar 9:30am Neanderthal Head:

It is a great song on it's own. Eminently singable.

Hey, Trouble!

Harry Partch's cousin Virgil ("Vip") Partch was an enormously successful and extremely funny cartoonist. His book of cartoons about GIs during World War II is a classic.

Good Morning Trouble and the Troubled. Late to the party, but here in time for Partch! Love the illustration.
Avatar 9:41am themutante:

Transitions. Trouble always with the gorgeous transitions. Don't let her tell you she's winging it, there is intelligent pre-prep in these sets.

@steveo It's those damn transitions. Smooth as silk.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:46am Webhamster Henry:

@Ron yes - people (of a certain age) might remember VIP from the Sunday funnies comic Big George. At the time VIP died, he was a year ahead on that strip! VIP also worked at Disney for a while!

Hullo, woof-moo fam! Feels like ages since I've checked in. Blame the abundance of fascinating podcasts out there for the absence. Delightfully weird in this corner of the net as always, I see.
