I never miscue a record. I am punctual, well-prepared, and dislike clutter. Outgoing and helpful, I'm always appropriately dressed. I do not behave erratically and have excellent penmanship. My CD's never skip, and I am in good health. I like all the notes, in any order.

I have a set of blackwood highland pipes and a set of bellows-blown lowland pipes for sale if any one is interested
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:17pm steveo:

i had some carrot cake and now my blowstick is jammed up with crumbs (that's a bagpipe part)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:18pm SSS:

It all started innocently enough. I lived in the East Village, and some guy used to walk around playing the bag pipes. It was around 1988?

hello!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:20pm tim from champaign (now washington):

Howdy all! Bryce, could you play some music from a spirit festival like Nat Pwe? My apologies if requests/suggestions are not appreciated.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:21pm SSS:

It became apparent after a bit that he only had one song. He would circle the blocks, repeating it, for hours at a time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:21pm Bryce:

imagine that now? lmao
Avatar 12:22pm Hubig Pie:

There are only nine notes on a highland pipe.It's just how you arrange them
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:23pm SSS:

It took time, but I learned to live with it. I figured he did this because if he did it in his apartment or in one place outside, he realized some one would have killed him.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:23pm Drunken Creep:

digging these instruments
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:24pm tim from champaign (now washington):

SSS - look up the story of Rufus Harley getting the cops called on him for playing his bag pipes in his apartment. It might be on his wikipedia page.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:25pm Krys O.:

Good afternoon!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:25pm SSS:

Years went by. I began to kind of like it, even laugh at it as one of the weird things you could love about the neighborhood.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:26pm Krys O.:

Not sure if it's a false memory, but I seem to recall a bagpipe player in the neighborhood when I lived in Upper Montclair.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:26pm chresti:

Only nine notes? My kind of instrument.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:27pm SSS:

Then, one day, A DIFFERENT SONG!! His schtick jumped right back into central awareness. It made me laugh and my mind race.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:29pm sphere:

Evan Parker came to the DC area one year. It was pretty amazing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:29pm SSS:

Once. He played that different song only that once. To make it even worse, there was no pause, no change in the timing of the repeats, he simply went right back to the song before, that he had given us for years.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:30pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I may have told this story before, but will add that at one time, I had neighbors on both sides of me who played bagpipes. Fortunately, they never played them simultaneously.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:32pm SSS:

Some time later, talking about it with other neighborhood folks, I heard he spent time in the joint for throwing a toilet out a window. Never met him, saw him, or was outside when he was on.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:35pm sphere:

Secret History of Mankind Vol. 2 has an amazing 78-type track featuring French bagpipes called Jabadao de Quimper (by Les Freres Sciallour).

Howdy marble mincers
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:41pm SSS:

@ KenFromHydePark - That makes me think of a bag pipe playing drone.
Avatar 12:42pm Hubig Pie:

Highland pipes- one octave + one
There's also accent notes, tachems, lemluaths and taorluaths
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:43pm Phillippe Bastille:

Ugh, bag pipes. They made me hate Amazing Grace. Then I heard my niece sing it and now I hate it worse
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:43pm Bryce:

SSS, that's amazing

Ken fhp....simultaneously might have been better!

Yes, simultaneously needs to happen somewhere in the universe at sometime.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:49pm tim from champaign (now washington):

@Phillippe - hahaha! Wait until you hear Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah on bag pipe.
Avatar 12:49pm Hubig Pie:

SSS- I think bagpipes originated in Babylonia. A desert instrument fashioned out of a goats stomach, but those notes are Gaelic
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:50pm Carmichael:

I have a set of Uileann pipes with a broken pump that I have fully intended to fix for the last decade.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:51pm SSS:

Huh, had no idea, just jokin' around. Thought they originated as a Scottish war / terror device.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:52pm sphere:

the earliest evidence of bagpipes has been dated to 1000 BC.

@tim from champaign oh god no, tell me that isn't a real thing. And don't let my niece hear it...

I feel I need to mention that I am cool with the bag pipes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:55pm tim from champaign (now washington):

@Phillippe - No reported sightings yet. just spit ballin' here, as they say.

there is jazz bagpipe, which has always sounded a little weird to my ears.
Avatar 1:03pm Chris from DC:

Love the pipes, sorry I missed David Watson.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:04pm chris:

hi, Bryce and folks. i'm having a Pavlovian cocktail hour response to this piece.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:04pm Krys O.:

I appreciate the musicality of industrial environments.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:05pm Phillippe Bastille:

I wonder what Ike would say if he ever heard Heavy Metal played on pipes/goat stomach
  1:07pm adrian elaine:

i like this
  1:07pm karen eliot:

you are welcome. bagpipe story. sorry if I told it already. lived in this old house with strange happenings. my good friend, “pipes” came over with her bagpipes and played throughout the entire house. a cleansing of some sort. unsuccessful but fun. btw- are all bagpipe players nicknamed “pipes”?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:09pm SSS:

@Krys O - I have fond memories of the crazy rhythms (and visuals) while my parents were in the front seat of those 1950's era cars, and I was on the rear window deck, while they drove thru NYC. Over the bridges and such. I think it was my first altered state experience.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:10pm Rory:

Fuck yes!

This track is sick!

Idi Amin loved the bagpipes

Avatar 1:18pm βrian:

The bagpipe story I heard was that the Irish gave them, as a gift, to the Scots. But the Scots didn't understand it was a joke.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:21pm ParUbi:

They seem built for drone because that's ... what they do
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:22pm SSS:

Hmmmmm...........
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:24pm Ike:

ANTIFE HAS BEEN SUMMONED.

@Phillippe actually that might be pretty cool. Or at least not as bad as the original version. I bet AntiFe would probably give Matt clearance to perform that (assuming he can play bagpipes, since he can play any other instrument known to mankind) and play it every week.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:26pm Sean d:

The gong show
  1:28pm karen eliot:

Wow . Idi Amin played the bagpipes. I can bet they didn’t call him “pipes”.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:28pm Webhamster Henry:

Hiya Bryce- I recognized Ellen Fullman amongst all these other drones. #pattingmyselfontheback
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:29pm Ike:

(For those who are unaware, an ill-considered pledge challenge turned out poorly for the Felderites earlier this week. AntiFe is victorious, as was foretold and inevitable. Though MW won't admit it yet, presumably for theatricality. I have the numbers. There is no escape. Marbles will rain.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:29pm tim from champaign (now washington):

Has anyone seen 'Idi Amin Dada'? It's pretty incredible.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:30pm SSS:

@ tim - I'm gettin' scared
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:31pm ParUbi:

Who or what is AntiFe?
Avatar 1:33pm Hubig Pie:

"The Last King of Scotland " is a pretty entertaining bio-flick
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:33pm Passaic River Blues:

@Ike/Phillippe: you guys may have just begun the process of a Warwick/AntiFe détente. The centerpiece of a negotiated peace plan might just be the playing of a live, bagpipe version of "Heavy Metal" in lieu of the Felder recording. This could be the beginning of WFMU's very own Good Friday Agreement! As Heather B says, ALL GLOCKS DOWN!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:35pm Kat in Chicago:

Bryce! Been too long. Yay for Friday drones.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:36pm Ike:

@PRB, HALLELUJAH! Finally perhaps we can rest our weary hands! No more switching to Bagel Radio or Drone Zone or WPRB for five minutes every Tuesday morning. It was so exhausting.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:36pm Kat in Chicago:

@ParUbi: AntiFe = AntiFelder
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:37pm ParUbi:

Oh, because of that 11AM song. Got it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:40pm Ike:

[after a quick consultation with the more militant factions of AntiFe in a smoked-almond-filled back room next to a donut factory] However, we'd prefer it if Matt weren't allowed to *practice* on the bagpipes first. Ideally, his performance should be... raw.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:40pm Kat in Chicago:

@ParUbi Ike pledged beaucoup bucks this week to get that song canceled
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:41pm ParUbi:

It was pretty terrible. I remember enjoying the movie though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:42pm Kat in Chicago:

Never saw the movie, kind of found the song thing amusing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:42pm tim from champaign (now washington):

Oooh, I'm not familiar with this Charlambides.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:43pm Kat in Chicago:

Yeah, I've already clicky-starred this episode for later reference
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:44pm sphere:

@Kat - I thought it was YETI BOB that swung the hammer down on Felder.
Avatar 1:46pm Chris from DC:

Thuja!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:46pm Bryce:

  1:47pm Ike:

Group effort. I believe Yeti Bob was in there too.

@steveo your posts are intriguing. Have you found a lost Richard Brautigan novel and are sneaking in quotes?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:34pm Gaylord Fields:

I'm waving at Bryce, but he can't see me doing it, hence this description.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:37pm tim from champaign (now washington):

@Phillippe ans sphere - I visited the Richard Brautigan library in Vancouver, WA in the spring. It's part of the local history museum. The Brautigan library consists of an actual library described in The Abortion.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:44pm SSS:

@ steveo - Then I guess if I yell MAYONNAISE it won't mean much to ya?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:45pm steveo:

it will, but not because of brautigan

@tim that statement raises a question: is saying "it's not half bad" a "glass half full" or "glass half empty" approach? Cuz "It's not half good" just sounds bad.
