This is so good. It is one of those cases where I feel like it reminds me of something but I really don't know what. Usally because it has a lot of influnces I like but so blended togeather I can't pick them out.

@Mr Fab and @DJ GeorgyGirl - Hello! This is John from Cambridgeshire. I would like Various Artists - "Strictly Britxotica! : Palais Pop And Locarno Latin" (LP), please.
Avatar 3:14pm Mr Fab:

Linda, he was a pioneering gay crooner. The album of love songs to and from boys is from 1962. I have the actual vinyl, so it is for real. This is a reissue.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:14pm Linda Lee:

beautiful!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:14pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I can see great steam dirigibles rising up in the air over an industrial Victorian city. Wonderful :-)

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:17pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Hotski - with your name you sound like you have a marvellous castle somewhere ;-)
Avatar 3:17pm Martinibomb:

It is a pretty great name. You win the best handle contest.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:18pm Honski de Boiski de Otsi Stoneski Hotsi Totsi:

I do. Play castle in the basement of Sheena's Jungle Room, which has a history of being once a quite vibrant Speakeasy.
Avatar 3:18pm Mr Fab:

excellent, Rod McKuen's "Beatsville" is so great. We should request that for a prize for next Marathon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:18pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@MB - definitely :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:18pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I don't trust any speakeasy that isn't at least semi-vibrant ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:19pm Linda Lee:

gosh, this unpleasant description of time travel sounds just like my everyday life!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:20pm Linda Lee:

helplessly headlong on a switchback!

All the little clicking, ticking, winding noises are just wonderful :-)

Dilapidated in it's despair now sadly. But if anyone has any magical pixie dust...

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:21pm Jan Turkenburg:

Hi Rawvegetable!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:21pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Linda Lee - these last few months have certainly felt like some weird time travel for me, I have to admit. Bit of a washing machine drum effect.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:22pm Linda Lee:

here too dear. my gosh, does it stop?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:23pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Yes - because I said it should :-) The Times of Cake are upon us! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:24pm Linda Lee:

ooh really? fabulous! i'll take it!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:24pm Honski de Boiski de Otsi Stoneski Hotsi Totsi:

Yes please, I would like a slice. Listening to Cake.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:24pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Honski - that would be wonderful :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26pm Hotsi Totsi Honski de Boiski de Otsi Stoneski:

Yessss... saw your event plug Georgy in the FMU Blast Newsletter for the show end of the month, with none other than Robin Guthrie in attendance. Just wow. So, cake listening to cake will be in Victoriaville with Robin. Ooookay, yes please.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Honski - in a lovely library no less! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28pm Hotsi Totsi Honski de Boiski de Otsi Stoneski:

Door will knock at any moment but the nice thing is, keep Sheena's on in the backdrop while I serve french pressed cafe and have a meeting. Have fun in chat all, thanks to all the fellow fundraising donaters and should be able to pop back on chat tail end of MB's show. See yas!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:29pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Thank you Honski! Huge hugs :-)
Avatar 3:32pm edelkakao cha cha:

hi gg & you all, kudos to the guy above my comment using the best nickname of all time!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:33pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

There was a five year period around the end of the millenium - sort of late 90s to the very early 200s when I was listening to a lot of very atmospheric music like this. Bands like Ulver, for example. Wonderful stuff :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:34pm Linda Lee:

isn't this lovely.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:34pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@edelkakao - hello!!! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:34pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Yes, people. I was around in the early 200s apparently. LOL!!!
Avatar 3:34pm edelkakao cha cha:

this is indeed good stuff, and again I have never heard this before...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:35pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I was so excited to play this today - and so pleased that you're all enjoying it :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:35pm Linda Lee:

i think we all were, GG. pretty undifferentiated, but we were.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:36pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

DJing was a bit trickier in the early 200s - I won't lie ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:37pm Linda Lee:

no doubt. did you even have hands? or ears?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:37pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I did, but they were wooden. High tech at the time tho ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:37pm Linda Lee:

oh! i was thinking the year 200. not BC or AD, just 200.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38pm Linda Lee:

wasn't the planet cooling off then?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

It was a wee bit chilly :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39pm Linda Lee:

ah. tough to find a cable, too, i bet!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

It's amazing what you can do with rope - trade secret there ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Of course all the records were wooden as well ... long story
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40pm Linda Lee:

ahahah!
Avatar 3:40pm Martinibomb:

I think this is the 'newest' music you've played on this show ever? Am I wrong?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@MB - I think you may be right there :-) I'm getting modern in me old age ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:42pm ParUbi:

Something else I like in this vein is Univers 0
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:42pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@MB - I've just looked at your show page. Is that one of your wonderful paintings? :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:43pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@ParUbi - I shall have to check that out! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44pm ParUbi:

I guess the 0 is usually spelled out, so "univers zero"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:45pm ParUbi:

It's worth it, though they have more of an HP Lovecraft vibe.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:45pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I shall definitely hunt that down - thank you for that :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I've got one more track after this and then it's over to martinibomb's for Medium Cool!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:55pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I'm going to post the link to the album on the group - it's available as a free download :-)
Avatar 3:57pm Mr Fab:

Fun-to-Know Fact here, kiddies: Wells wrote the Time machine as a warning: imagine if all people are divided into the Haves and Have-nots? Like, if there was a growing homeless population, and an affluent class living in extremely high rent cities? Imagine that! Wow, that Wells was pretty kooky, eh?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:57pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Thank you all so much for listening and for supporting all of us here at Sheena and WFMU :-) Huge hugs from me xx
Avatar 3:59pm edelkakao cha cha:

Hey this is Josh from Vernian Process! thank you so much everyone for all the kind words about our music. I worked on this album so long ago I almost forgot about it.
