The Laphroaig has fallen. Behold!

Not to be confused w/ Mats Gustaffson's The Thing.

Laphroaig's the new tradition? Love it already!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:11pm Scott Williams:

Welcome everyone! Hope you're enjoying this Beatles cover
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:13pm Rich in Washington:

Ringo songs usually get short shrift, so this is nice to hear.
Avatar 3:14pm northguineahills:

I have a Matts Gustaffson solo 7" that came w/ a booklet of recipes....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:15pm Kelly Jones:

This track is scaring my cat...
Avatar 3:15pm fred:

@RTD: Amazingly, soon after you mentioned that bottle, I got a CD in my mailbox, one track of which mentioned finally draining a bottle of whisky (That record is Benjamin Bret's Black Kracougol, a copy of which was sent to the station)
Avatar 3:20pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Nice. A wee dram o' the smoky stuff reminds one that winter still exists, somewhere... Definitely no fan of this summer thing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:22pm Scott Williams:

@Kelly, ask your dog what s/he thinks!
  3:23pm Marie:

@Kelly. Mine has stopped grooming himself....
Avatar 3:24pm fred:

Not a fan either, though I've heard we might get nighttime temps reaching below 85 later this week. But daytime should break 100 tomorrow
  3:25pm Marie:

this is the first summer where the humidity is really dragging on me

Now my cat seems to be on high alert. Scott, r u transmitting secret messages to cats?
Avatar 3:34pm northguineahills:

@the holy tuberred one: I don't mind a hot summer, as long as I get a winter. Alas, those last maybe 2-4 weeks down here, and they're comparable to a NYC May,

@Marie, everything I do I'm doing for doggies

Tragic story, Bas .. making do with the Optigan emulator for iPad in the meantime. It's obviously not enough, but for a kind-of optigan-methodone...maybe...

Bans Manco, new to me! daha!

This English-language Manco is a lot of fun.
Avatar 3:41pm geezerette:

Hiya, Scott and planet woof-moo!
Seems like most of the world is having the same weather.
Keep a wet t-shirt in the freezer if you don't have AC, that's my advice. Also a spray bottle of water to spritz on your face.
...and Popsicles...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:42pm maestroso:

I've got Nick the Chopper on a Manco compilation.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:42pm steveo:

i hate to be a pain in the ass (haha sure i do) but that Manco was in the new bin this morning when joe played it

Word, Rev, hope he keeps up the good fight!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44pm Passaic River Blues:

@maestroso: That's interesting--completely new to me and endearingly odd to my ears.

@steveo: the one from Joe's show was a truly weird country & western number, too!
Avatar 3:45pm northguineahills:

First album name, "Klown's Komedy Klassics!"

//I'll show myself out, try the waitress, tip the veal....
  3:45pm Marie:

Music coming out of all holes? No wonder my cat was freaking out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:46pm steveo:

@prb yeah I liked that one a lot
Avatar 3:50pm fred:

@JakeGould: I wouldn't count that as biting, there are precedents to both. More debatable that both Beyoncé rip offs (Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker and Pipilotti Rist)

I couldn't headbang anymore with this drony soundtracky stuff.
Avatar 4:15pm fred:

@ngh: I know the cure: Guinness. It works for all ailments
Avatar 4:15pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

It would seem i've missed the boat on the Kelly Jones era. To the archives...but not now! This! But later! First this! Then that! What?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:16pm steveo:

i'm banging my head, but on a cowbell
Avatar 4:19pm Chris from DC:

I'm in a trance here, so not much chance of being productive here the rest of the afternoon.
Avatar 4:19pm northguineahills:

@fred: I'm still 3.5 hours from beer o'clock...., but I my local pub has given me a free keg (as long as it lasts w/ everyone else), so, I'm choosing an unpopular one. An extreme IPA (and I generally dislike IPAs, but, heh, free beer [It took me 11.5 months to earn it].
Avatar 4:19pm fred:

I finally got enough sense (and/or Guinness) to get that Midori Takada release a few months ago. Delightful
Avatar 4:20pm northguineahills:

Oh, Midori Takada, perfect for my brain!
Avatar 4:24pm fred:

I still find it mind-blowing that it's a solo record. She overdubbed all parts herself
Avatar 4:24pm Chris from DC:

Yeah Fred, I'm sold on this.
  4:24pm McGreivey:

To be clear, that wasn't a complaint. Excessive headbanging is too much. 'Course, these tomtoms are getting my noggin bobbin' again.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:26pm TomDash:

Hey Scott! Just tuning to catch this trance-inducing Midori Takada (she's coming to Brooklyn soon I think?). The perfect soundtrack for a steamy, dog-day, Monday afternoon...
  4:27pm David in London:

Really liking this set.
Avatar 4:27pm fred:

Kuniko Kato also went this way more recently with her recording of Xenakis' Pleiades. I have heard it but haven't bought it yet, hoping to get it at one of her shows (she didn't have a merch table last time)
  4:27pm Robin:

Delicious transition
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:28pm steveo:

she was in brooklyn in may. is she coming back?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:30pm TomDash:

Ahh steveo - right, that's the one. Guess I missed it! haha...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:30pm steveo:

me too, sigh
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:30pm Scott Williams:

she has something new out (1st in 20 years), but I can't find news of upcoming activity in NYC
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:32pm Carmichael:

Heya Scotty and peoples of the webs.
Avatar 4:33pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Speaking of FMU shows either gone or on hiatus: any possibility of a Bethany R/A440 return? Rumors? The secular root-vegetable clergy needs to know these things.
Avatar 4:35pm fred:

@RTD: You should check out Bronwyn B's show. She plays classical music too (and show tunes)
Avatar 4:41pm northguineahills:

@fred: Xenakis' Pleiades is a fave of mine.! I need to seek it out!

fred, reach out to Scott!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:42pm Carmichael:

Your bed music makes me want to march somewhere.

@Carmichael: I'm a marching band veteran, we can lead the way!
Avatar 4:49pm fred:

@ngh: Kuniko Kato link: www.kuniko-kato.net...
Her record label has expensive downloads, but at extremely high quality (192Khz/24bit FLAC)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:49pm Scott Williams:

Rev, Bethany is around occasionally, I also hope she'll at least do some fill-ins sometime soon
Avatar 4:51pm JakeGould:

Gotta leave the daily grind behind. Everyone stay cool! Literally!
  4:56pm melinda:

Nice sounds
Avatar 5:00pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Alas, I was late to the A440 party; by the time I got properly tuned in, it was nearly done ..! & thanks Fred: I'll dig BB as well..
Avatar 5:02pm northguineahills:

Thanks for the linky, fred!
Avatar 5:03pm fred:

@ngh: a couple youtube links to parts of that Kuniko Kato release: www.youtube.com... www.youtube.com...
I think it would be hard for her to perform that piece, but I saw her perform Rebonds and it was great (another performance here: www.youtube.com...)
She's also great playing Reich, and Pärt (less expectedly)
I'd recommend seeing her perform if you get the chance
  5:03pm Marie:

I loved that. Thanks Scottie!

Cool, I don't have too many Arvo Part percussion pieces!

For a long time, the title track to Urban Spaceman was a kind-of personal theme song. To the surprise of absolutely no-one..

Didn't Paul McCartney produce Urban Spaceman?

@andrewb, he did indeed. Fortuitous, because at the time, neither of them existed!
