Options Record Roulette Club with DJ Henry: Playlist from April 1, 2019 Options

recordrouletteclub's avatar View recordrouletteclub's profile Options

Kind of like taking your parents record collection and getting drunk in a Radio Shack. Rock and Roll, Rhythm and Blues, Garage Punk, Regular Punk and Old-Fashioned Weirdos. Hopefully you have the patience for this fast-paced sonic impatience. Not recommended for the fan of 4 minute songs.

Mondays 2 - 3pm (EDT) | On WFMU's Sheena's Jungle Room (Info)

read you loud and clear, Henry!
Avatar 1:49pm recordrouletteclub:

I apologize for this episode ahead of time. I don't usually do themes (the seemingly randomness is the theme), but this week on RECORD ROULETTE CLUB its nothing but songs by all LEFT HANDED musicians.
Avatar 1:50pm recordrouletteclub:

I had to search far and wide to compile this playlist.
So, the music suffers a little, but as long as there's a fresh theme, that's whats important. Big picture ya know?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:51pm Jan Turkenburg:

any new way to construct a playlist has my full support :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:51pm Jan Turkenburg:

whatever the result!

Avatar 2:03pm Mr Fab:

Welcome back, your dreams were your ticket out
Welcome back, to that same old place that you laughed about
Well the names have all changed since you hung around
But those dreams have remained and they've turned around
Who'd have thought they'd lead ya
(Who'd have thought they'd lead ya)
Back here where we need ya
(Back here where we need ya)
Yeah we tease him a lot 'cause we got him on the spot
Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back, welcome back
Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back
Avatar 2:03pm recordrouletteclub:

I just got buckled up a plenty over here!
Its good to be back on the stream.
Avatar 2:03pm recordrouletteclub:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:09pm Jan Turkenburg:

Glad to have you back, Henry!
Avatar 2:09pm Martinibomb:

WE miss you Dj Henry! Glad Jan was able to fill in and you're able to come back.
Avatar 2:10pm Mr Fab:

Traffic and Weather coming up next on Record Roulette Club!!
Avatar 2:13pm Mr Fab:

Well, this show certainly rocks as per usual. Any updates to your studio when you moved into your new pad?
Avatar 2:15pm recordrouletteclub:

No. The set up is exactly the same. My back isn't though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:17pm Jan Turkenburg:

Sorry to hear about your back. :-(
Avatar 2:18pm Martinibomb:

Whoa this track is kickin'!
Avatar 2:18pm recordrouletteclub:

Its cool. Its mostly from moving books around. I can't give up the books. Always with the books.
Avatar 2:19pm Mr Fab:

and record crates, in my case!
Avatar 2:19pm recordrouletteclub:

@Martini I really wanna see these guys HANK WOOD & THE HAMMERHEADS.
Avatar 2:21pm Martinibomb:

@Record yeh just checkin' out their live footage of them on utubes
Avatar 2:21pm Mr Fab:

We saw a good doc on the making of "Parallel Lines," breaking it down song by song. They interview Ed koch!
Avatar 2:21pm recordrouletteclub:

It looks intense.
Avatar 2:22pm recordrouletteclub:

Ed Koch? Weird.
Avatar 2:22pm Mr Fab:

They were trying to put the album in the context of new York City at the time
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:23pm Rich in Washington:

Welcome back, recordroulletteclub!
Avatar 2:24pm recordrouletteclub:

Thanks Rich!
Avatar 2:24pm recordrouletteclub:

You guys really cleaned up the place with me not around!!
Avatar 2:24pm recordrouletteclub:

@Fab--what's the name of the doc?
Avatar 2:27pm Mr Fab:

the somewhat awkwardly named "Blondie's New York and the Making of Parallel Lines."
Avatar 2:27pm Mr Fab:

it's good tho!
Avatar 2:28pm recordrouletteclub:


Where do they come up with these titles??
Avatar 2:29pm Mr Fab:

I should point out to anyone new to this show that Danny's name is literally "DJ": Danny J Henry. Being a jockey of disks was clearly his life's destiny!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:30pm Jan Turkenburg:

hear hear!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:30pm joe:

'ello folks
Avatar 2:30pm Mr Fab:

Our audience has grown a bit since you've been gone, Danny
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:31pm Jan Turkenburg:

Hello Joe!
Avatar 2:31pm recordrouletteclub:

Wooooo to the Hoooooo!!

Anyone remember THE FIGGS? Still around. Still great.
Avatar 2:31pm recordrouletteclub:

Hi Joe!
Avatar 2:32pm recordrouletteclub:

@Mr Fab I'll just consider that growth in audience a coincidence!! Hahah
Avatar 2:33pm Mr Fab:

Hey Joe! (Sorry, you probly get that a lot)
The Figgs seem Replacements-y. Which is always a good thing in my (cheap comic) book.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:34pm joe:

@Mr Fab I'll have to check that out I have a very weird infatuation with 20th century pre His High Exhaulted Whatever Rudy NYC (particulary pop culture) history.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:35pm joe:

@Mr. Fab you know not as much as you would think
Avatar 2:37pm Mr Fab:

Love this "WIld Man" wild song! Tho I initially read the band name The Tamrons as, er, something else.
Avatar 2:41pm Martinibomb:

I was looking that Frank Carson song up on youtube and someone made this funny comment about it hah. "Just got ready for a Sunday night session at the pub. My local has one of these new dukeboxes that literally has everything on its hard disk. A few of us old farts think up the bizarre garbage to play in order to wind up the young lads who are forever putting on shite such as Libertines, Snow Patrol, etc. For some reason, this song sprung to mind after about 40 years - so thanks to the poster, and Frank Carson, I now know what to search for."
Avatar 2:44pm Mr Fab:

I really did LOL at your story Danny, t and at the above posted by Martinibomb. Oh man, I think Sheena's has another Official Song.
Avatar 2:45pm recordrouletteclub:

I almost hate to play that song on the show, but its almost like a form of therapy to hear it. Like the worst kind of ear worm. I DO LOVE THE SONG. Its just complicated.
Avatar 2:46pm Mr Fab:

me and my no-good hoodlum friends used to do the same thing with bar jukeboxes. once, when we saw that one had the White Album, we put "Revolution 9" on, like 10 times.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:53pm Rich in Washington:

I used to take my kids to this local burger chain that was all fake 50s inside, complete with a fake Wurlitzer jukebox full of CDs and you could grab tokens for it at the front counter. To our delight, it had the best of Nuggets on it, so we'd program like an hour of garage and psych stuff. It got my kids to really appreciate stuff like the Seeds and Electric Prunes. It also made the other patrons really edgy. It was pretty fun. We'd do it every time and they eventually took that particular CD out of the machine, apparently.
Avatar 2:55pm recordrouletteclub:

@Rich, that's hilarious!! It wasn't called "Flameburger" by any chance?
Avatar 2:56pm Martinibomb:

@Rich Was that the 50s one that was in Lloyd center?
Avatar 2:57pm recordrouletteclub:

I also heard a story once about 45rpm records that were just 4 min. of silence for the older folks to buy and play before the teens load up the jukebox with rock and roll junk , etc. anyone else ever hear of this phenomenon? It makes sense..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:58pm Rich in Washington:

No. It's Burgerville. They now have their own fake radio channel. I think it's programmed by the Portland agency formerly known as North, who are headed up by ex-Gang of Four member Dave Allen.
Avatar 2:59pm Mr Fab:

i did read about a bar that had Eno's 'THursday Afternoon" - an hour of ambient music. It would drive the patrons crazy, but it was suspected that it was in the juke to give the bar employees a break.
Avatar 3:00pm recordrouletteclub:

Time to turn on the lights and play the Frank Carson song again
Avatar 3:00pm recordrouletteclub:

Avatar 3:00pm Mr Fab:

So glad to have you back Danny, full on rocking show. in 4 hours, join Spacebrother for "Stop hitting Yourself" Its' WEIRD!
Avatar 3:00pm Martinibomb:

oh man! great show! thanks
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:00pm Jan Turkenburg:

My father once got handed a 45 by the owner of a bar. You like this music? I don't Here you are! Glad to get rid of it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:00pm Rich in Washington:

Thanks, Henry! Great to have your show back on!
Avatar 3:00pm Martinibomb:

I did work for north and also did the kids meals at burgerville
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:01pm Jan Turkenburg:

Danny, thank you for a great show!
Avatar 3:01pm Martinibomb:

Ranger Bud and Salmon!
Avatar 3:01pm recordrouletteclub:

Thanks again everybody!! Its a blast!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:02pm joe:

Probabley also used as last call which is why Skinny Puppys Rabies appeared in the jukebox of the one bar I hung out in.
