This is it! When i heard this I Knew everything else was failure.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:09pm The Oscar:

Love the bit in that Beefheart track where the guitars lock into what could almost pass for a standard '60s pop rock song, and it almost feels like an accident.

Turned on the show right at Capt Beefheart - great synchronicity since I'm reading Mike Barnes bio of the Captain right now!
  3:44pm Zuki:

Hakelroad was Zoot Horn Rollo - the best guitarist I ever saw
  3:44pm Mike tp:

Rockette Morton ?trout mask for me N my buddies was like the alphabet.i briefly played in a band kernel dak..it was a jam band we jammed on beefheart jams.it was fun.!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44pm Rich in Washington:

Another classic Zappa-produced album that he actually had little hands-on involvement in: An Evening With Wild Man Fischer. I think by that point, he had had enough of Larry.

this bass line is very similar to that in a particular necks track

Wow, loving this
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:15pm coelacanth∅:

i clicked this star on Olivia's show at some point and at the time likely assumed she was mixing stuff together in the studio

Carl Stone on Baroo: "The pieces use a technique of time slicing that I first started doing back in the 90's, notably with my piece MOM's, wherein sound files are metaphorically shattered in time like glass and then reorganized into mosaic patterns."

Anything like GeorgeMartin throwing bits of taped calliope into the air for 'Mr. Kite' ?...

I owned on vinyl both Trout Mask Replica and the Sun Ra (Nuits de la Fondation) when they first came out about 1970. Congratulations to me for 50 years as a Sun Ra fan!

Coincidentally I just finished reading a biography of Pauline Kael. Seemingly not the most pleasant person to know, but boy could she write about film.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:32pm Michael 98145:

i miss those days of cinema
Avatar 4:32pm ottovonbqe:

I used to appreciate fabio's flim announcements, but now that I live in a cultural wasteland it just makes me depressed. Well, maybe a movie about superheroes would cheer me up :/
  4:34pm Flan:

I saw Last Tango in Paris when I was a teenager and I did not know what to make of it. I did not find it entertaining or fun, that's for sure.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:35pm The Oscar:

While we're on film talk, I just got to see the premiere of Midsommar, the new film by the director of Hereditary. Highly recommended for fans of psychedelic horror in the Wicker Man/Roeg/Ken Russell vein.
  4:41pm William Main:

@Michael: I don't have either of them any more. Don't remember what I did with them. Nuits de la Fondation originally came out as just one album with an edited down version of Cosmic Explorer. Foolish me for letting it go!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:46pm tim from champaign:

@The Oscar - Good to know, I really liked Hereditary. Did you see The VVitch?

Oh I guess it's Carpetbag Trout.
  4:48pm wfmu_listener_phillip:

wow thats some weird warped tune!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:49pm The Oscar:

@tim Yes! Two of my favorites of recent years. Midsommar doesn't quite match Hereditary's ratcheting tension, but the atmosphere and imagery is really something else. One of the most beautiful horror movies I've seen in a very long time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:50pm common:

Fabio, all. Happy Thursday!
  4:52pm chresti:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:53pm common:

Midsummer sounds awesome, the Oscar. Loved hereditary
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:54pm Carmichael:

Carpetbag Trout Replica. Everyone needs a copy of Trout Mask, because it's good for your musical soul.
  4:56pm nic:

love this!!!

Wait - there's someone else who enjoys KenRussell??

That Okkoto release is really good. Grabbed it after Scott W played it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:06pm Michael 98145:

why, yes @RRN63, i did enjoy Ken Russell
  5:07pm Flan:

So. I found the other KenRussell people. He is mocked. Probly had this convo before...

Also, didn't realize that Trout Mask Replica was another 50th birthday celebrant in this big year of 50th anniversaries and birthdays (mine's coming up in a few weeks)

The Stooges self titled album will be 50 years old this year too. "Last year I was 49..."
Avatar 5:16pm TDK60:

I remember '69. It was hot, in the contentious streets.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:19pm tim from champaign:

I know that flappy wobbly sound. It's the sound of an RCA Dynaflex record being wobbbled between 2 hands.
  5:23pm William Main:

"The Stooges" eponymous first album - another record I had on vinyl when it first came out. This show is bringing up a lot of memories for me
Avatar 5:27pm TDK60:

'Witchi Tai To' by Everything Is Everything came out in '69; 'Volunteers' by Jefferson Airplane; 'In A Silent Way' by Miles.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:30pm Carmichael:

This is a fuzzed-out Fender Rhodes, sounds like. KEWL.
Avatar 5:30pm Chris from DC:

Sucker for that fuzzed out sound.
Avatar 5:35pm spodiodi:

nice set
Avatar 5:36pm TDK60:

Did-you-know-Dept? When Tim Hardin opened at Woodstock ('69), he pulled out a song to start with, that his band didn't know at all!

Thanks again, Fabio. Where else would we be ?!?

Speaking of fuzzzzz.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:43pm tim from champaign:

Man, I love the Stooges. I love all the stories I've read about them, particularly in Please Kill Me and Detroit Rock City. As a Michigan dude, I can relate to their shenanigans, down to earth bullshit detectors, hi-fi low brow/high brow li fi spirit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:44pm tim from champaign:

Iggy's great but the Asheton brothers and Dave Alexander are the heart and soul of the Stooges
