Doesn't sound like you got a bad deal falling back on your second choice here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:02am TomDash:

Ha! indeed ultradamno...I was gonna play both versions - this will do nicely!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:03am mariano:

Hey TomDash, ultradamno, everyone.

Hey! My favorite butthole surfers!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:11am TomDash:

Hey mariano, Sean d! G'morning
  12:18am egould310:

I almost wrote “Good start”. But then, Butthole Surfers?

Hell yeah!! Tearin’ up the mothafukkin start!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:23am ultradamno:

By Products of America. I've seen them many times. Really good band, not overflowing with stage presence, but great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:25am ultradamno:

Clip of them playing at Sudsy Malones, the rock and roll laundromat, I believe www.youtube.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:26am TomDash:

ultradamno - wasn't sure if that was the same band - cool you saw them, love that track on the new comp
  12:33am egould310:

@ ultradamno I graduated from New Castle, IN hs in 1987. Spent so much time in Muncie (No Bar), Indy, Cincy, Dayton, Columbus, Bloomington, etc. going to shows. We probably were shoulder to shoulder in a mosh pit at some point.
  12:34am egould310:

But now I’m in Seattle. I listen to WFMU to stay “edgy”.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:36am ultradamno:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:36am ultradamno:

Ever hear of Hate Trip or The Belgian Waffles?
  12:40am egould310:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:41am ultradamno:

No. But I may know him, does he have a sister my age?
  12:42am egould310:

Oh wait; Tony?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:43am ultradamno:

No. But if you're thinking of TBW! Tony I know him very well.
  12:44am egould310:

Hey dude. I dated your sister.
  12:45am egould310:

Yeah TBW. I dated his sister.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:45am ultradamno:

You dated Lois?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:47am mariano:

Love this bass!
  12:47am egould310:

As fellow Trojans, drop me an e-mail at my handle at g mail And let’s shit the shit as middle aged (?!?!) dudes from the same hometown.
  12:49am rduck:

cool tunes. what is the flange or delay you throw in there?
  12:49am egould310:

I dated Lois in the sumner/fall 8th to 9th grade.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:50am coelacanth∅:

greetings Tom and others
  12:52am egould310:

And I was already listening to “college rock” like REM, Replacements, dB’s, etc.

Then Jerry gave me a mixtape that changed my life. Scratch Acid, The Fall, The Cramps, Jarboe. Weird as hell, but it blew my mind.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:53am TomDash:

greetings coelacantho, rduck, etc...looks like we have a MidWest reunion going on here with egould310 and ultradamno...crazy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:53am ultradamno:

Were you into punk then? She was so...sour with us it's difficult to imagine.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:53am ultradamno:

@Tom I know this must be thrilling reading for everyone else.
  12:56am egould310:

I was nibbling around the edges of punk. Mostly college rock and stuff. And you guys were not very friendly.

She was nice, but definitely didn’t share here bro’s music tastes. She was really into Night Ranger.

8th grade. Whatever.
  12:59am rduck:

can you play sister christian
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:00am TomDash:

rduck...left that one at home!
  1:00am rw:

It's a small world. Howdy! Sister Christian would sound awesome right about now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:01am TomDash:

mornin' r-dub
  1:01am rw:

Actually, it's running through my head and that seems to be more than enough. Hey TD!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:02am ultradamno:

It's good music for drug deals, if hollywood taught me anything.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:03am mariano:

Brad Gillis had a good turn as Ozzy's guitarist on one of his 80s tours and that live album.
  1:06am rw:

Does this R. Calvert record sound good as a record or does it just sound good as single tracks mixed in with a radio show?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:13am TomDash:

rw - its a good record, but a little uneven
  1:18am rw:

Cool. Thanks. I've been curious about his solo stuff but haven't got much farther than that. Some day, I guess. There's too much music!!
  1:20am rw:

And this station's programing doesn't leave much space to explore much else.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:21am TomDash:

ha, rw I hear ya...his 2 records with Hawkwind are essential if you dig Hawkwind...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:26am coelacanth∅:

Calvert's first 2, maybe 3-4 albums used to be on youboob, in their entirety. i thought i jacked 'em but i can't find the files. maybe i never got around to it, but i did listen to them through a few times.
anyway i haven't used youboob for music in several years so i don't know if they're still there.
  1:27am egould310:

How old is Lee Scratch Perry? Like, 114 years old?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:27am mariano:

Ooh, saw Lee Scratch Perry a few months ago, 45th anniversary of Blackboard Jungle.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:28am ultradamno:

Well, coel nowadays, if you don't pay them money, You Tube thoughtfully interrupts with commercials every four or so minutes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:28am mariano:

Or was it a year? All blurs together at my age. He came out on stage filming the audience with his phone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:31am coelacanth∅:

ultra d that's not surprising.
i do sometimes, as a last resort, use it for instructional videos but i never watch more than a few minutes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:32am ultradamno:

Born:Mar 20, 1936, Kendal, Jamaica
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:33am coelacanth∅:

mariano that's cool he's 83 now and looks pretty good...and he always sounded like an old man so no changes there!
-did he rant forever? i heard that he's gotten over that and puts on a good show now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:36am coelacanth∅:

haha -"filming the audience with his phone"...what a weirdo!
  1:36am rw:

Time for me. Need to get up early. Thanks TomDash! Have a good evening everyone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:37am mariano:

@coelacanth - He was having a great time - it seemed like one long stream of vocals. Brooklyn-based sound system backing him up. My main impression: what an amazing way to spend one's golden years! Have a good night, @rw.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:38am coelacanth∅:

gnight rw
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:38am TomDash:

g'night rw - thanksas always for tuning in!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:41am coelacanth∅:

mariano -somebody who actually is "living the dream".
i doubt he needs the money; probably just loves the attention -as well as being profoundly passionate about the music..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:45am mariano:

Yeah, @coela - everyone was stoked to see him, and was stoked to see everyone. Good vibe. And it was a really good show, at Tipitina's, nice small/medium venue. Tickets were only $15.
  1:46am egould310:

He is the Super Ape, after all. What a career.
Avatar 1:47am tak:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:49am coelacanth∅:

damn, i'd go see him again. after seeing him i said fuck that i wouldn't pay for that again; but it sounds like it's now what i was looking for the first time.

Good Morning all you folks out there in WFMU land

earth walker, what's another station you like to listen to?

Hello Euro friends - Earth Walker and fred...good morning!

  2:02am Morris:

Good morning from. Dresden, Germany!

Heyyyy-oooo!!! Three martinis into the evening. Greetings from Seattle. Ballard. Ocho.
  2:07am Earth Walker:

Hey duck how’s it going
Just tuned into Jazz groove
Been listening to Radio Paradise for a while but it sounds to recorded lately
WFMU is the go to station
How about you
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:07am coelacanth∅:

hello germany! (i was just thinking about dresden earlier today too, but only because i was talking about Kurt Vonnegut)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:08am TomDash:

Hey Morris - thanks for tuning in!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:11am ultradamno:

I gave Robin Crutchfield's radio show a listen yesterday and, man, that is one eclectic 120 minute block. Not just everybody goes from Betty Hutton to Chris & Cosey to Fleetwood Mac at a run like that. That's Irwin worthy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:20am coelacanth∅:

i'm drifting away as well and have a busy day ahead so i'm going over there
Thanks Tom and Welcome back!
take care folks

Hello coel !
Avatar 2:25am fred:

@mariano: Lee Scratch Perry will be playing at Sonic Protest in a couple of months, in a church (and with Adrian Sherwood)
  2:26am Earth Walker:

Happy trails coel
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:30am mariano:

Bet that would be a great venue to see them in, @fred. What a pairing, those two!
Avatar 2:31am fred:

@mariano: I hope they'll have Guinness on tap at that show. That would be appropriate
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:35am mariano:

Haha - warm Guinness!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:39am mariano:

At least that's what someone told me in Jamaica - cold Guinness was more expensive, so a lot of people developed a taste for warm Guinness, became associated with reggae/dub.
  2:43am egould310:

Thanks, Tom for a great show. Real interesting mix of songs, strung together nicely.
