"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

unexpected forsyth day. alright!
Avatar 12:17pm John Allen:

hey everyone/ we're gonna hear a lot of guitars today
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:18pm tim from champaign:

How many guitars are we gonna hear?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:19pm tim from champaign:

I do like a lot of guitars!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:20pm chresti:

I'm good with many guitars w/tapping. carioca had a raga feel
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:30pm tim from champaign:

I was not aware of Robert Quine's fronted records. I'm totally with you guys on his guitar work with Richard Hell, Lou Reed, Lydia Lunch, et al. He's so great.
Avatar 12:43pm Franco Twinkie:

I love the angular attack Quine used. Chaos and control at the same time.
Avatar 12:50pm Franco Twinkie:

This has a nice lost in the fog feeling.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:03pm tim from champaign:

Who was on bass on this recording? Hell or Fred Smith?
Avatar 1:04pm John Allen:

Avatar 1:07pm Franco Twinkie:

The first time I saw/heard Television was in June 1978. I guess this is when they decided to put it on ice for awhile? Anyway, the interplay between Tom had been worked into dagger point at this time. In the punky days of 78 they stood alone and far above everything else.
Avatar 1:09pm Franco Twinkie:

...and Richard.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:10pm steveo:

hello & [insert semi-witty comment here]; you're back in the ET a.m. next week, I see
Avatar 1:17pm Franco Twinkie:

I'm sure the comparison between Verlaine/Lloyd and Cippolina/Duncan has been made before, but for fans of the conversational style, they book-end nicely.
Avatar 1:25pm Chris from DC:

That was impressive.
  Swag For Life Member 1:27pm museguy:

"the vocals hold up a lot better without words"

Was hoping Clay would come in and make Chris do some pushups or something.

since chris might be seeing this i just wanna say All Time Present whips ass.

And, hey, ZZ top got the upper-case treatment! Well, partially.

John Coltrane was a bad MF (watch your mouth!)

RTD, it's a bit more salty
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:50pm Goyim in the AM:

Holy crap, this is exquisite.
Avatar 1:52pm Franco Twinkie:

I did not see The Dream Syndicate at Raji's, but I did see them at this dump called the Anti-Club about a mile away before the first album came out. Karl leaving changed the sound forever. Oh well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:53pm Goyim in the AM:

Yes, and his leaving the guitar behind completely is an unspeakable tragedy. But I never knew the post-Karl Syndicate could be this good.
Avatar 1:54pm Chris from DC:

Only got to see Karl with Last Days of May, but it was staggering.
Avatar 1:55pm Franco Twinkie:

They were good, and still are...but.
Avatar 1:57pm Chris from DC:

Saw Dream Syndicate knock this one out of the park just a couple of years ago.
Avatar 2:13pm northguineahills:

I love Daniel Carter!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:14pm tim from champaign:

I saw hardcore shows at ABC-no-RIO when I visited NYC in the early 90s. It sounds like they did other things than HC/punk shows?
  2:18pm yippie:

there were bicycle clubs at abc no rio too
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:26pm steveo:

lovely one this
Avatar 2:28pm βrian:

I even appreciate the vocals.
Avatar 2:30pm northguineahills:

I played at ABC no Rio a few times, every time it was different....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:37pm Dave in Vermont:

I've begun to have mixed feelings about the lyrics to this song. I know it's about an individual caught in a bigger system out of their control, and/but is it too sympathetic to the idea of "dixie" which is also a euphemism for a racist state, not to mention standing in awe of a Confederate general.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:39pm Dave in Vermont:

But also, play that sweet guitar, Jerry. And what a melody.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:39pm tim from champaign:

This is meeelllllloooowwww.
Avatar 2:41pm Franco Twinkie:

I saw an earlier version of this band in L.A. earlier that year. They were still calling themselves The Legion Of Mary. So un-dead like in their presentation. A lot of what was already crippling The Dead thankfully missing.
Avatar 2:42pm coelacanth∅:

i had trouble with this song's lyrics since i first realised the reference sometime in the 70s. i only started to be able to appreciate the gist of the song and overlook that within the last few years.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:43pm tim from champaign:

@Franco - could you expand on that? ie - how were the un-dead and what was crippling the dead at that point. Just curious. I'm a half assed dead fan.I like some stuff, other not so much.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:44pm Ike:

But you could tell this wasn't a Jeff Conklin selection because 1) it wasn't 10 billion minutes long and 2) Jerry Garcia could sorta kinda actually sing in that one. A little. Kind of.
Avatar 2:45pm βrian:

Is it that you can't dance to the Dead, or is it that if you like the Dead, you can't dance?
Avatar 2:45pm Franco Twinkie:

Ron Tutt.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:45pm tim from champaign:

No way, like TCB Band Elvis drummer?
Avatar 2:46pm Franco Twinkie:

Tim, some other time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:48pm tim from champaign:

Cool - Franco. My biggest thing I find frustrating about the Dead is that they have 2 guitars and 2 drums, yet they play so politely and everything in it's right place.
Avatar 2:49pm Hubig Pie:

Dancing to the Dead is all about the elbows
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:50pm Booz:

Sprawling, bodacious show, thanks JA & CF
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:50pm tim from champaign:

Yes, awesome show today Chris and John! Thanks so much.
Avatar 2:51pm βrian:

Elbows? I thought those were lateral fins ...
Avatar 2:52pm coelacanth∅:

tim, it seems to me that's the difference between liking the dead for the music (like myself) rather than the "culture" (like "deadheads). i really like a lot of the dead but loathe some of it as well. most of the stuff i loathe is from the mid-70s, the period that Franco may be referring to.
Avatar 2:52pm coelacanth∅:

(not that anyone asked my opinion)
Avatar 2:53pm Franco Twinkie:

Coel, lets do lunch.
Avatar 2:54pm βrian:

Not surprising to hear from a pre-historic phish ...
Avatar 2:55pm coelacanth∅:

haha! hey Franco, i'll leave tonight, should be there by monday.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:56pm Ike:

@coelacanth∅, hold on, you mean we're supposed to wait until somebody asks our opinion on things? Holy crap!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:56pm tim from champaign:

@coel - oh yeah, I hate(d) the deadhead culture which really turned me off to the dead for many many years.
Avatar 2:56pm Franco Twinkie:

A walking talking fish that that evolved into a stone cold motherfucker, Brian.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:56pm steveo:

ah yes, the “nihilistic disco accountant”
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:57pm chresti:

Thanks JA!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:58pm steveo:

thanks Chris & John; very enjoyable today
Avatar 3:00pm coelacanth∅:

Thanks John! Thanks Chris!
Avatar 3:00pm John Allen:
