Nice opening Jeff, I haven't heard Steve Hillage since I was a commercial fisherman in Alaska before I took a wrong turn and ended up in NCY.

Just a 30 foot double ender. Two person crew, Beautiful SE Alaska, islands galore, moss like walking on clouds, Killer Whale escorts, sun dipped down at 11pm, rose at 2am, three hour sleep during short seasons, ... but no WFMU, discovered quickly, maybe that's why I am still here.

Hi Jeff and Avant Ghettoers! I hadn't heard that Steve Hillage track since high school in the mid-1970s! ha Would have much rather heard it on an Alaskan fishing boat.

Nice. Have you been following Jarnow’s podcast re-hashing all of those old stories around it?

Wow, ozric. Forgot about them
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:19pm ParUbi:

podcast time for me is taken up by audiobooks of books that are too dry/demanding for me to read but i feel i need to read them
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:21pm ParUbi:

Pollan has that book about microdosing which i've been meaning to check out, may end up in that department
Avatar 10:21pm Jeff Conklin:

I do jam Brokedown Podcast on the regs and Beyond the Pond, especially on decently long drives.
  10:22pm Chris H:

I think this is actually the first ozric tune I’ve ever heard
Avatar 10:22pm Jeff Conklin:

@Chris: Missing out!
  10:24pm Carmichael:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:24pm mb:

Ozric on the radio. Yes!
  10:25pm saucerful:

An older friend who did LSD in the '60s/'70s recommended that Michael Pollan book to me. I watched a video on YouTube of him giving a lecture to college students on the book instead, and they talked about microdosing. Pretty funny.
  10:26pm Carmichael:

Ozric. Say it again.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:27pm ParUbi:

@saucerful -- maybe that's enough for me!
  10:27pm Chris H:

@jeff I’m definitely interested in hearing more like this!

@Chris: All the 80s stuff. 90s gets more untz-y which is fine by me...

yo ho yo ho a pirates life for me
  10:30pm Carmichael:

Keep saying Ozric.
  10:33pm saucerful:

@ParUbi, ha I just looked it up and forgot it was a talk to Google employees not college students...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KuhmZSFvhL0

Wow micro dosing google employees..
  10:35pm saucerful:

Yeah, pretty wild

@saucerful-- Thanks! aww, man, google employees! everything is tainted

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:41pm ParUbi:

@Jp-- it does dive more deeply into lessons of the psychedelic experience, right? microdosing is just a small part of that
  10:44pm tfunk:

the dissolution of ego
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:47pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

The podcast Psychedelic Salon is great for intelligent talk.
  10:47pm Joeybug69:

Hot take: macrodosing is the new microdosing.
  10:48pm phat:

I don't miss LSD but boy it sure would do a thing right now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:49pm fleep:

temporary dissolution. egos come roaring right back. the epiphanies don't last. except in some cases.
  10:49pm phat:

And microdosing is the exact opposite of what I used to do. Man, when the dead used to tour people would come back to town with so much shit
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:50pm ParUbi:

you have to pay attention and integrate the lessons, which takes some degree of of mental work
Avatar 10:50pm chris in echo park:

really going way out tonite. love it.
  10:51pm grtyve:

this is wfmu fully living up to high expectations. wonderful listening!
  10:51pm P-90:

We don’t hear enough Gong on FMU.
Avatar 10:52pm Jeff Conklin:

I can't recall the last time i played gong, maybe when I did a Canterbury thing a couple years ago...
  10:52pm phat:

I was gonna listen to some gong earlier and didn't and now I'm glad Jeff is playing this
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:54pm DocBlueDog:

That Gong track was totally smokin. :)
  10:55pm Joeybug69:

I was fortunate enough to see Pierre Moerlen’s Gong in ‘79 & ‘80.
Avatar 10:55pm Jeff Conklin:

Never got much into that era, Hillage was gone, right?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:56pm Sid:

Never thought about Ozric's debt to Gong.

Neil's just being lazy these days. You or I could write better lyrics than the latest record. Wonder if Daryl feels ripped off. :)

fun stuff
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:23pm ParUbi:

thinking about the similarities between jam and drone. something about a sustained plateau
  11:23pm hevy kevy:

while i always would want more avant ghetto i dig the way this 2hr slot has changed your set. always loved the solid gd hour but now it's a treat rather than routine.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26pm Phillippe Bastille:

@hevykevy order me a couple gallons of 5W-30 pls. My truck's throwing more smoke than a Spinal Tap stage show.
Avatar 11:26pm Jeff Conklin:

I was thinking about that, hevy. I'm digging the streamlined vibe for the most part although I always have stuff i plan to play I cant get to
  11:30pm hevykevy:

@jeff these are the good types of problems that's why we always keep up with it. but super diggin this set especially in the setting. on sugar and pasta currently
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:36pm WR:

Yeah, still listening. Chores done. To bed or sip a stout as this last half hour rolls out.

Where you been, then, Whosondephone?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:44pm WR:

Since every selection in this set is new to me I should ride it out to the end.
