First Queen album I ever heard! Daughter of family friends put on That Track. Was all of six. I'd heard ~nothing~ like it.

I'm tuned in but my mind keeps playing that Sesame Street Pinball song.

awww sorry.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:16pm CHUCK ROAST:

I guess we're doing the dozens today.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:18pm listener james from westwood:

Oh, yeah, that PIL is a definite "holy shit!" musical moment.

CHUCK: It's just a numbers racket!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:21pm Rich in Washington:

It blew my mind when I learned that that numbers song was sung by The Pointer Sisters.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:21pm CHUCK ROAST:

Yeah, those first #'s videos on Sesame Street were Grace Slick.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:22pm Rich in Washington:

and what was left of my mind was blown away when I learned that the 'Jazzy Spies' song was Grace Slick.

St. Etienne -- have they ever made a bad record?

Rich! I am so excited to learn that the Pointers Sisters are the ones who did one of my favorite songs of all time!

Sesame Street pulled talent!

Buffy Sainte-Marie breastfeeding her baby on Sesame Street, Stevie Wonder jamming in the intersection. I want to live there forever. And fare thee well, Carroll Spinney! Go in peace!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:33pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

don't worry about me, i'll keep missing it, apparently. This Kinks are alright!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:34pm listener james from westwood:

Ooh, Bowie leads would be fab.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:36pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

How about any song written or performed by Carole King? Ya got everything from 60's hits to 70's yum to still performing today!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:39pm Julie:

I don't think there's enough variety there. I think Bowie might be the best contender as far as a huge amount to pick from and many different sounds
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:40pm Julie:

and I have been really wanting to dig more into Bowie.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:41pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

Other songs of King's early period (through 1967) include "Half Way To Paradise" [Tony Orlando, recorded by Billy Fury in U.K.], "Take Good Care of My Baby" for Bobby Vee, "Up on the Roof" for the Drifters, "I'm into Something Good" for Earl-Jean (later recorded by Herman's Hermits), "One Fine Day" for the Chiffons, and "Pleasant Valley Sunday" for the Monkees (inspired by their move to suburban West Orange, New Jersey),[37] and "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman" for Aretha Franklin.[38] The duo wrote several songs recorded by Dusty Springfield, including "Goin' Back" and "Some of Your Lovin'."
That's variety!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:43pm Julie:

i was thinking I Had started my first show with Bowie but I guess it's my demo I am remembering.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:43pm listener james from westwood:

Anyone else here still get chills when they see the name of that Bowie album and/or track? :( At least we still have the music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:45pm Julie:

it's all pretty chilling, yes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:46pm Julie:

although I heard it first in the show, performed by Michael C Hall.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:46pm Julie:

that show was also a great deal of WTF
Avatar 12:52pm Hubig Pie:

I am here for the Robyn Hitchcock song of the day
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:53pm Julie:

this is an album I don't know very well this song is great

I regret that I was too ill to make their show at St Vitus but this was a nice performance.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:34pm listener james from westwood:

The newly redone roof deck makes for good band pics.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:36pm Michael 98145:

yes
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:36pm Julie:

I always liked shooting out there anyway. I like the industrial look. It wasn't too bad up there considering it was a super windy cold day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:42pm Phillippe Bastille:

Dang, that is a good-looking group of young folks in that band!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:45pm brainiac:

Sorry I'm late... this sounds great!
Are Blushing 2 married couples or bros & sisters? Or some other combination of relation?

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:57pm brainiac:

Cool, thanks
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:58pm Ike:

I was about to say "sounds like Curve!" and then I googled it. Of course it sounds like Curve because it's yet another Dean Garcia project! (He has several.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:59pm Julie:

Yes his name keeps popping up!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:59pm Julie:

Curve is one of those bands I feel like I should listen to more
Avatar 2:04pm talvi tulee:

Terve Julie, mitä kuuluu? Yes, it has been a while since I have listened to Curve - should make a habit more regular of it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:05pm Julie:

I've played SPC ECO too, that is also him.
Avatar 2:08pm talvi tulee:

also Milk & Kisses has been overlooked by me. It sounded a bit too poppy when it came out, which was when I was getting into their music. Heaven or Las Vegas was the first thing that really struck me as something I did not want to be without. And then the catalogue before that was a find indeed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:08pm Ike:

Musically, Curve is quite similar to all the other Dean Garcia projects but I like Curve best because of Toni Halliday's vocals - lots of vocalists have collaborated with him but she's my fave. Mostly people just pay attention to their early stuff (from the early 90s) but I'd say the late-period self-published stuff ("New Adventures of Curve" etc.) is also great, though the quality of the lyrics went downhill.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:09pm Julie:

def need to dig into them more
Avatar 2:12pm talvi tulee:

actually, is Cocteau Twins' milk & Kisses that dissimilar from what Curve were up to earlier during the 90s...? maybe Curve sounded more sinister if also poppier....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:14pm Ike:

They were absolutely my favorite 90s band because not too many others did "shoegaze" with a hard, driving edge but also female vocals. In fact I'm not sure I can think of any others besides, as you point out, Garbage. Some Curve fans HATED Garbage because of all the comparisons but I sort of liked them.
Avatar 2:15pm talvi tulee:

Dean Garcia outside Curve is something i have only heard only here, and even then having no clue what I am listening to. I am usually messing about in the kitchen (which is pretty much the same space as my living room where the sounds blast from and where the computer is) so I am often absent from the comment board for quite some lengths of time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:15pm Phillippe Bastille:

I think a Christmas set, a "Julie's favorites of 2019" set, and a set about hope and optimism and joy would just about do it.
Avatar 2:16pm talvi tulee:

I never got into Garbage. But hope and optimism and joy would be what i needed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:16pm Julie:

haha hmmm
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:18pm Julie:

I saw Garbage with Blondie they were fantastic
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:22pm listener james from westwood:

Holy crow, there's a band pairing to shake the pillars of Heaven.

Speaking of which—BFOS!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:23pm Julie:

at the Beacon no less, James! What a great show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:30pm Ike:

Best Curve EPs and albums, in order of release: Blindfold EP, Frozen EP, Cherry EP (all three comped as "Pubic Fruit"), Doppelgänger, Cuckoo, Blackerthreetracker 1 & 2 EPs, Gift, and New Adventures. The last two were really criminally overlooked. Not as good but still interesting: Come Clean. So, a fair amount of material.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:32pm Phillippe Bastille:

Gotta run. Thanks Julie! Bye everyone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:32pm Julie:

thanks for listening Phillippe!
  2:33pm Mr Nobody:

Adios!
Avatar 2:38pm talvi tulee:

thanks for the curve list Ike! gotta check the usual bandcamp/spotify, been a while since I have listened to these
Avatar 2:41pm talvi tulee:

may I recommend a Finnish band fom 90s - Wilma. Especially their album Claudius. If you like Curve, you might like this too. Do not be put off by lyrics in Finnish, they are quite indistinct anyway. Do check it
out fellow listeners and Julie!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:42pm Julie:

ooh yes will do!
Avatar 2:49pm talvi tulee:

whoa, probably my favourite post-Floyd track and its best version. Luckily this is where they did not mess up with the bbc material when preparing the box set.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:51pm Ike:

Thanks @Talvi@2:41, I'll try them!
Avatar 2:52pm talvi tulee:

no worries! thanks Julie, until next week!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:53pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Thanks, Julie. Did I mention my lunch today was a bagged salad with expiration date 12/12? If I'm not here next week, look for me in the hospital with E. coli symptoms.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:54pm Julie:

haha Oh No Ken!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:54pm Julie:

thanks for listening everyone! one more short song after the break. see you next week!
  2:55pm Mr Nobody:

Aww that time already?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:55pm Julie:

I know right?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:57pm Ike:

Thanks Julie!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:58pm listener james from westwood:

Many thanks, Julie, and happy to have had Blushing as part of the fun!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:58pm brainiac:

Julie, thanks for turning me on to the INKRÄKTARE record. Really intrigued to find out if it's the best record of the year!
Avatar 2:59pm talvi tulee:

perfect song to end the show
  2:59pm Mr Nobody:

What? No Dark Night of the Day After Christmas?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:59pm Julie:

haha brainiac we shall see I guess!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:00pm Julie:

Sorry, but Kamikaze Diane will be here, and Tamar the week after. Family vacay time for me!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:01pm Julie:

see you next week!
