The core of Big Planet Noise was formed when Bob Irwin was just 5 years old. The day he picked up his first 45, the whole thing set to spinning – and records and music have been pretty much all he’s thought about ever since. Avocation eventually became vocation, leading to Sundazed Music and Modern Harmonic, all drawing inspiration from Bob’s legendary collection. But, what good is having so many records if no-one else can hear them with you?

Big Planet Noise is Bob’s way of inviting everyone over to hang out in the music room while he and co-host Gina Bacon flip through the stacks and play great records. And – the BPN chat room is where the action is… they yak about what’s on the turntable, tell stories, backstories, and share what was had for dinner, friends ’n family style. Gina keeps the celestial orbit steady-as-it-goes; making sure the stylus stays in the groove, the stacks don’t teeter and the drinks don’t spill all over the console. NB: Gina can also be heard on Saturday afternoons as the host of Someday Matinee (also on WFMU's Give The Drummer Radio stream), a show filled with live musical performances and artist interviews, direct from Music City.

There’s a reason it’s called Big Planet Noise… the show covers a lot of musical ground; familiar, forgotten, unheralded, unheard… The sonic menu is ever-changing; you’ll hear oddball teens, psychedelic wizards, mod lads, sitar savants, space-cadets, groovy soundtracks, and maybe even some bossa nova, when it feels right.

Avatar 8:08pm AlexClarkCaprio:

Midnight Ride is my favorite Paul Revere LP, mono versions are pretty inexpensive on Discogs
Avatar 8:09pm bigplanetnoise:

It's my fave Raiders LP, too. Although, sometimes it's kinda hard to choose... Spirit of '67 is right up there too...
Avatar 8:09pm Andy R:

"Spirit of '67" is the one with "Airplane Strike" on it, right? I love that LP.
Avatar 8:10pm bigplanetnoise:

It is.

I won this one, eargasm!

Pay up, Bob!
Avatar 8:26pm bigplanetnoise:

Alex - yes. Earlier though. This single was '66 or '67. Doomsday was '69, I believe...

I love the damn Great Scots. Love.
Avatar 8:31pm Snayle:

And thank YOU for that ! :D
Avatar 8:32pm bigplanetnoise:

Playing this in real mono. Most mono Blues Magoos albums actually are stereo. With mono labels.
Avatar 8:33pm AlexClarkCaprio:

Bob is that Sundazed Blues Magoos singles collection in mono?
Avatar 8:33pm bigplanetnoise:

Yes Alex. All mono.
Avatar 8:35pm bigplanetnoise:

The Kings of Corpus Christi!!!
Avatar 8:35pm Andy R:

Was there some weird thing going on at Mercury with that mislabeling? As I have a copy of Spanky and Our Gang's first LP that says Stereo on the sleeve, Mono on the label.
  8:35pm Tim from LH:

The Great Scots are really growing on me, hello everyone.
  8:36pm Eargasm!:

I love the Bad Seeds and Zakary Thaks film that turned up. Amazing stuff
Avatar 8:36pm bigplanetnoise:

Hey Tim!!! Glad you're here, and glad the Scots are taking root!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:36pm Gina Bacon:

Hi Tim!
Avatar 8:38pm bigplanetnoise:

Andy - Mercury was the first label that I knew of that was just taking stereo records and putting mono labels on them. I'm not sure if it was just at specific pressing plants that maybe only rec'd stereo stampers.... There are true mono pressings, but they're not that common. So, I'm guessing that the folks at Mercury weren't overly concerned about any of it!
Avatar 8:38pm bigplanetnoise:

Eargasm - yes- that film is amazing!
Avatar 8:39pm Andy R:

Avatar 8:39pm bigplanetnoise:

Mailman - your request!

Liz has forbidden me from playing Beefheart in the car, I guess I had it coming - one night I was driving home and “Big Eyed Beans From Venus” came on and I sang along in Beefheart’s voice and she stared at me in confusion
Avatar 8:43pm bigplanetnoise:

I would have loved to have been in the A&R meeting where this was decided to be issued as a single.
Avatar 8:43pm bigplanetnoise:

She will learn to love the Captain!

I always think the same thing about Herr Doktor Krieg. What were they thinking?
Avatar 8:45pm Snayle:

Ahhhhh, Montreal, Florida ! :p
  8:47pm Eargasm!:

I think the Canadian Rouges once said in an interview they thought it would lend some international flair to them, haha
  8:47pm Eargasm!:

Problem was everyone from the area knew them!

Avatar 8:52pm AlexClarkCaprio:

I like the Dakotas version better than The Beatles
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:52pm Gina Bacon:

That Dutch Baby was a thing of beauty, Uncle Michael. And the sausages. Killed me.
Avatar 8:53pm bigplanetnoise:

Alex - It's a perfect record. And nothing sounds as good as the U.S. 45 - it was mastered perfectly. The vocal is twice as loud as everything else, but the reverb fills the entire space. So good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:54pm Uncle Michael:

They were just supermarket sausages!

The Dutch Baby flopped over the edge of the pan due to too much flour.
Avatar 8:55pm bigplanetnoise:

Like I've always said - this chatroom is all about music AND food. PERFECT!!!!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:55pm Gina Bacon:

I love those supermarket sausages.
  8:56pm Eargasm!:

I love the way The Young Men rewrote this DC5 song as Go!
Avatar 8:56pm bigplanetnoise:

Don't know that one. But it's indeed a great one to rewrite....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:57pm Uncle Michael:

If I had my life to do over, I'd have gone to culinary school out of high school.

But then it'd be.... like work.

Our friend Alex here is a chef!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:58pm Uncle Michael:

Yeah, there's that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:58pm Gina Bacon:

True...might have taken the fun out of it.
Avatar 8:58pm bigplanetnoise:

How is it possible that I've never played this before on Big Planet Noise?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!!?!?!???????????
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:59pm Uncle Michael:

Does Alex regret making cooking into work?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm Gina Bacon:

Such a great, evocative vocal.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm Uncle Michael:

I love the Animals...right up till Eric started fancying himself as more than an rnb singer.
Avatar 9:00pm bigplanetnoise:

Alex??? Are you having dinner?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm Gina Bacon:

Oh, right...he just made steak!
Avatar 9:01pm bigplanetnoise:

The Animals were one of the absolute best. No contest.

Hi David!
Avatar 9:02pm bigplanetnoise:

Well, hey there, David! Yes - a GREAT B-side. But - I feel that way about most Animals B-sides!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:02pm Uncle Michael:

Well, until they weren't. I hold an unpopular point of view about Burdon.
Avatar 9:03pm bigplanetnoise:

Yeah - I think we'e talked about that. I love him all the way through. I know that you brick-wall at some point, yes?
Avatar 9:03pm AlexClarkCaprio:

I ate that steak and salad with Liz when the show started. Uncle Mike, I don’t regret anything I’ve done, but this industry is brutal (long hours, the pay is lousy when you factor hours worked) but I enjoy it enough. I have an exit strategy mapped out over the next two years

I'm probably better off not having my life to live over.

Tim - best compliment ever!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:06pm Uncle Michael:

Bob, I think Warm San Franciscan Nights, Down in Monterey, Sky Pilot and Sandoz are the four worst songs ever written. This is entirely subjective. Keep in mind that I view the Doors as a comedy troup.

Uncle Michael, my pick for worst song is “American Pie”
Avatar 9:09pm bigplanetnoise:

Can someone bring the violinist into the same room, please?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:09pm Uncle Michael:

Sometimes I think Donovan was a better Marc Bolan than Marc Bolan.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:09pm Gina Bacon:

Everybody's got their thing(s). I like that you think of the Doors as a comedy troupe. I'll bet that's controversial with some folks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:10pm Uncle Michael:

The only way I can make sense of the Doors is to conclude they were putting us on.
Avatar 9:10pm AlexClarkCaprio:

I think the Doors are just OK, but they were Johnny Ramones’s favorite band
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:11pm Uncle Michael:

Alex, I give American Pie a past because when it was on the radio...the first time around...I was like 10 and thought it was cool. Nostalgia....
  9:12pm Eargasm!:

I'm big fan of the Doors. Morrison as shaman goes a bit too far, but I've always maintained if their records were small private pressings collectors would pay $$$$$ for them.

What percentage of the DC5 tracks does DC actually drum on?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:13pm Uncle Michael:

I know I hold an unpopular view.
Avatar 9:15pm bigplanetnoise:

I like the Doors. I'm just tired of them, I guess. And it's another group where I seem to like all the wrong songs. The unhip songs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:15pm Uncle Michael:

So much fun to immediately recognize this song...but not the record.
Avatar 9:15pm vanhooserd:

I always enjoy The Doors. Sometimes I take Morrison seriously, sometimes not, but either way I get my kicks.

This is one of those songs that is part of my internal playlist...
  9:17pm Eargasm!:

Birdwatchers made so many great singles.
Avatar 9:17pm bigplanetnoise:

On the Doors, I can tell you this. I got the first LP when I was 9 years old. Nothing sounded like that record. I bet I played it a thousand times that first year.
Avatar 9:18pm AlexClarkCaprio:

Everytime I hear a Birdwatchers song I like it, I need to listen to them more
Avatar 9:18pm vanhooserd:

Bob, when you have time, please send me a list of the tracks with DC. :)
  9:18pm Jay S.:

As someone who grew up on late 60s AM radio, The Doors had some superb singles. They had a unique sound.

Yeah - why don't more folks pay attention to the Birdwatchers????
  9:18pm Eargasm!:

To this day nothing sounds like it.

I've been watching those reruns of the old S&C TV shows. I think they're on about 3am. They're a tough watch.

My parents played everything from Gilbert & Sullivan to Brazil '66 to Vivaldi and The Beatles. All over the map.

It's stunning how popular the S&C Show was.

They just dropped it in the summer and it exploded. CBS had no idea.

Alex - not a great sleeper.

I tend to view Sonny as more of a hustler than a talent. Kind of a Billy Rose of rock and roll. He had a knack and really knew how to leverage assets. Is there a good Sonny bio?

Hey, Thomas!
Avatar 9:32pm bigplanetnoise:

Good question, Uncle Mike. I sure agree with you about the hustler end of things.
Avatar 9:32pm bigplanetnoise:

This always sounded like a single-mic on the drums.
Avatar 9:34pm bigplanetnoise:

Snayle! Glad you checked in - I was getting a little concerned!
  9:34pm Eargasm!:

and then you listen to some of the records he was involved in.
Avatar 9:35pm bigplanetnoise:

Sonny apprenticed with Phil, right??
  9:36pm Eargasm!:

I think he did.

I did a little record shopping yesterday and scored a pretty clean copy of "Kind of a Drag" on USA Records.
Avatar 9:45pm bigplanetnoise:

Yeah - buy 'em all, Andy. And flip them over, too!

I've always liked this one a lot.

Shades of the Amboy Dukes here.

I love it that the guitarist's fingers can't go quite as fast as his brain!

Gina & Bob , great sounds as ever.
The Byrds sounds still sounds contemporary. Jangly guitar, harmonies & inventive variety. First time I heard Mr Tambourine Man it turned my head forever.

Oh and great opening tracks on debut album. Fresh Garbage is up there with Steely Dans Do It Again or in Robert Palmer's case the first three tracks.
