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.

..still a bit green here on Ichiban. I see you're associated with Sundazed. Missed the outfit at this year's WFMU rekkid fair. Usually get an LP. next year?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:04pm pacific standard simon:

"I Can Hear The Grass Grow" is one of my favorite records ever, but it's even better with The Move's dance moves on that German TV version, which you can find on youtube.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:05pm Gina Bacon:

Avatar 8:05pm bigplanetnoise:

TDK60 - yeah - Sundazed is my label. We moved the creative base of operations down to Nashville about ten years ago, so it's really tough for us to do the FMU show these days...
Avatar 8:05pm bigplanetnoise:

Pacific standard - that clip is SO great! I'm still on the fence for a lot of the Move catalog, but I love that song!!!!

I had the pleasure of working with him for many years on his Epic catalog. He's a VERY smart and VERY nice guy. One of the best.

OK, EARLY Neil. I have an LP of Neil covering other people. "Chelsea Morning" is pretty interesting.

Did The Cramps ever cover "Be A Caveman"? Seems like a no-brainer (in more ways than one).

pacific - that is one great LP. We've played parts of it here before...
  8:41pm Eargasm!:

but they had the cool instruments!
  8:42pm Eargasm!:

I guess I should make it more clear that its the overly-dramatic full name songs that bug me.

Agreed, Bob. Talking nostalgically about rock in songs takes me out of it. To me it's still alive, I don't need to reflect on it.

I'm guessing S.F. Sorrow is NOT your favorite rock opera, and neither is Tommy.

Another fabulous Barry Mann/Cynthia Weil song. Eric sounded so raw.
Avatar 9:13pm bigplanetnoise:

This is Ian McLagan's first band
Avatar 9:13pm TDK60:

saw E. Burdon at a blues fest about 10 years ago: good!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:14pm pacific standard simon:

There was a breaking point for Eric Burden, for sure -- maybe Monterey. But I think the "Spill The Wine" single was sort of a comeback
Avatar 9:14pm bigplanetnoise:

Julie - a match made in heaven right there.
Avatar 9:14pm CC:

I wouldn't be the same if I never dropped acid!!!...hehehe... :)O(:
  9:14pm Tim from LH:

That’s cool Bob, didn’t know they had any releases.
Avatar 9:15pm bigplanetnoise:

I love the crazy acid-eating Burdon period.
Avatar 9:15pm bigplanetnoise:

Is this my most favorite Yardbirds song???? Tonight it is.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:15pm Uncle Michael:

Spill the Wine is funny. It's inoffensive to me because WAR saves it. That said, WAR's worst work was the Burdon stuff.
Avatar 9:15pm TDK60:

well, this song is a true fount of innovation! : no other geetarist had gone so far...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:16pm Gina Bacon:

It's so great.
Avatar 9:16pm bigplanetnoise:

TDK - I agree 10000000%
Avatar 9:16pm bigplanetnoise:

So, no Sky Pilot for you, Uncle?
  9:17pm Kevin:

A gem from the OUSD LP...we'll see if has the mono-only killer J.B solo finale!
Avatar 9:17pm vanhooserd:

Bob, you can play just like Jeff, right?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:17pm pacific standard simon:

What Michael said.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:18pm Gina Bacon:

I can attest that he plays air guitar just like him!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:18pm Uncle Michael:

I think "Sky Pilot" "Down in Monterrey" "Warm San Franciscan Nights" "Girl Called Sandoz", etc. Are among the worst songs I've ever heard.
Avatar 9:20pm Snayle:

Video pleeeze, Gina ! Must see TeeVee ! :D <3
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:20pm pacific standard simon:

Again, what Michael said.
Avatar 9:20pm CC:

I think America had a window of opportunity between 65 and 75 to make ourselves a utopian type planet... we must have blown it somewhere!?!...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:21pm Uncle Michael:

Glendora is a Perry Como cover!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:22pm Gina Bacon:

But...I also know Bob can play just about anything in real life.
Avatar 9:22pm TDK60:

I tend to agree with the above on the Burdon period: corny. But I also feel his heart was in the right place, at least.
Avatar 9:22pm bigplanetnoise:

Right - Downliner's cover Perry!
  9:23pm Eargasm!:

DMZ used to cover Glendora back in the 70's.

Hey David - thanks for being here!

Wow, Uncle Michael.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:24pm pacific standard simon:

This is pretty tight for The Dead.
Avatar 9:24pm bigplanetnoise:

I love the Dead. That said, we're pretty selective about what we play here....
Avatar 9:25pm TDK60:

their (G.D.) first LP is pretty rockin' and peppy.
Avatar 9:25pm bigplanetnoise:

I love the Country Joe songs where he yells. Like this.

Oh yeah!!! LUV!!

Listening to the song Grace with headphones will blow your mind music for the electric mind and body
Avatar 9:27pm CC:

I meant electric music for the mind and body of course
Avatar 9:28pm bigplanetnoise:

CC - it's an amazing album all the way through!
Avatar 9:28pm vanhooserd:

My sister had a crush on Country Joe's organ player, based on the cover to their 2nd album. She liked him almost as much as Roger McGuinn, but not quite.

David Cohen?!?!!? I'm telling him, David!
Avatar 9:29pm CC:

Yes BPN...I heard that for the first time when I was in 7th grade in 1967!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:30pm nostrangerer:

Funny. I bought the Grateful Dead and Country Joe records when they first came out but haven't listened to them since 71 or so and don't really remember them. Like from another lifetime only barely recalled through a haze.
Avatar 9:30pm CC:

The guitar player Barry was fantastic I think he became a Wall Street mogul???
  9:30pm Doug Schulkind:

Bigplanet, you rebel you!

Avatar 9:32pm CC:

This was from some older news I read but like David Bromberg he might have came back out???
Avatar 9:32pm TDK60:

CC: He became a lawyer I think. Barry Melton was one of /thee/ Bay Area psych geetar stranglers.
Avatar 9:33pm bigplanetnoise:

TDK - he def became a music biz lawyer.

Yes that's what it was TDK thank you

The Fabulous fifties by David amram really floats my boat... don't know why... you might have to borrow it from Bill Kelly...smile...:)O(:
Avatar 9:39pm Mailman Tom:

I just returned from a party in Redding CT. I'll be listening to your program in the archives tomorrow!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:42pm Gina Bacon:

I was wondering if that was your show...pacific standard simon!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:43pm pacific standard simon:

The Paul Butterfield Blues Band is definitely past the point where my aversion to horns jump in.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:43pm Uncle Michael:

The Charlatans were the first hippie band. Maybe neck and neck with Rising Sons. Real psychedelia is very different from what I think of as psychesploitation.
Avatar 9:43pm Julie P.:

Do I hear sitar music, Bob?
Avatar 9:43pm bigplanetnoise:

Yes - Julie. Gotta do it. A show isn't a show....
Avatar 9:44pm bigplanetnoise:

Uncle Mike - I love shuffling the deck of psychedelia and psychesploitation. Love it all together.
Avatar 9:44pm Julie P.:

Well, we were overdue for some anyway. ;)
  9:45pm Tim from LH:

This has got to be the Texas version of Them.

Certainly was, Tim!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:46pm pacific standard simon:

So sorry to hear of our loss of Mike Wilhelm. He was a genius of the funky electric folk blues. Yes, I said that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:47pm Uncle Michael:

I have plenty of affection for psychesploitation. There are so many great records. What amuses me is the "did they or didn't they?" (dose) question. I think there are a lot of "fake" psyche records made by people that were...*expanded*...but did the pastiche because there was a buck in it.
Avatar 9:47pm bigplanetnoise:

You're right!
  9:49pm Jay S.:

Hmm...never really considered that one had to be on something to do authentic psyche.

There's certainly enough Ventures to do every week!
Avatar 9:51pm bigplanetnoise:

Avatar 9:51pm Julie P.:

Not five minutes ago I was wondering if we were going to get any Hollies this week!
Avatar 9:51pm Snayle:

This Hollies LP has been stuck to my ears for weeks... I Can't Let GO!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:51pm Uncle Michael:

How do you attempt recreate a psychedelic experience sonically if you don't know what that experience is? If you're not "experienced" then you're trying to create what you imagine it to be at best, and aping mannerisms, at worst. Those mannerisms became a vocabulary.
Avatar 9:52pm bigplanetnoise:

All you have to do is think it, Julie....

We just need to fund it. You can direct.
Avatar 9:55pm Julie P.:

I have got to get this Sagittarius album!
Avatar 9:55pm coelacanth∅:

it often sounds like psych -especially when it's lyrics are actually about mind-altering substances, or the experience, is disgenuine, created for money, or to be hip; but having tried the drugs certainly is not necessary to make great, genuine psyche.
(shocking blue being a good example, in my opinion)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:56pm Uncle Michael:

How so, CC?
Avatar 9:56pm bigplanetnoise:

She's only rock n roll...
Avatar 9:56pm coelacanth∅:

(but then, i think there's a difference between "psyche" music and "trippy" music)
  9:58pm Eargasm!:

but then genuine acid heads create an album called Easter Everywhere and remind everyone what acid rock should sound like
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:58pm Uncle Michael:

Well, coel, there's psychedelia and then there's "psyche" as a musical genre. One can make the latter without psychedelic experience. I'd argue that you can't make the former without it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:58pm Gina Bacon:

I'd just like to say that this BB's song has never sounded as great as on this orig 45.
Avatar 9:59pm Julie P.:

How did it get to be this late already?
  9:59pm Jay S.:

No one made better use of the bass harmonica than the BB.
Avatar 9:59pm CC:

Uncle Mike... you can imagine someone else's experience but you cannot experience it yourself

Agreed BPN
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:59pm Uncle Michael:

I love your show, B&G. Thank you.
Avatar 9:59pm coelacanth∅:

i agree with that, UM. i guess "psychedelia" is what i mean by "trippy"

Avatar 10:02pm Julie P.:

CC and Uncle Michael, it would be an interesting study to try to figure out which was which regarding the psychedelia question. It is after all a role some would play convincingly.
