Avatar 7:02pm Mr Fab:

and: NYC synth punk legends Suicide's 2nd album reissue. i was a huge fan of these guys back in the day. I used to put my synth thru distortion and do my Suicide impression.
Avatar 7:03pm spacebrother:

RIP Kim!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:03pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Rich - thank you :-)
Avatar 7:04pm Martinibomb:

@SpaceBro sounds like yer system sounds are on? like messenger pings or something?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:05pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

IBM? No, YOU be M! ;-)
Avatar 7:05pm Mr Fab:

spacebrother told a funny story after Kim died about goin to Dodger Stadium with the Muffs to see a baseball game with them.

I wonder what sport one would have watched with Suicide?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:05pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

Plastics!!! YAY!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:05pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Oh!! Are those your sounds? I've been checking my Facebook and wondering why it's pinging me ... lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:05pm Rich in Washington:

I thought those were in my head.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:06pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

Slap to the rhythm, Cap'n!!
Avatar 7:06pm Martinibomb:

I discovered The Plastics thanks to Napster. Never heard them anywhere or saw there records ever until napster.
Avatar 7:06pm Don-O:

Fischer-Price in the house!
Avatar 7:07pm spacebrother:

The Shat is dancing to the Plastics!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:07pm Rich in Washington:

I remember seeing their wonderful video for Top Secret Man on SCTV.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:07pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

He does get a good rhythm going, bless him :-)
Avatar 7:09pm Mr Fab:

The Plastics album was fairly common. Probly got my copy for 99 cents. And yeah, i remember seeing them on SCTV and video-taping it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:09pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Oops - that was me messaging Greg there. Apologies everyone!
Avatar 7:10pm spacebrother:

The Plastics are probably in my 5 top favorites of all time.
Avatar 7:10pm Martinibomb:

in my top 5 as well
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:10pm Linda Lee:

how are you, Greg?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:10pm Rich in Washington:

i love their wonderful pulsing synthetic basslines. That first album and EPs are just fantastic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:11pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Please please please let I Am A Robot be on this week's show because I love that :-)
Avatar 7:12pm spacebrother:

Well, thanks, Linda.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:12pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

Hello GST!

Fun Fact: I used to live in Crawley. Home of The Cure. :-) Knew Robert's dad, in fact.
Avatar 7:12pm Mr Fab:

Yeeeaah! Satanic Puppeteer Orchestra. Fantastic SoCal absurdists with hilarious multi-media show and robot lead "singer". Me n spacebrother are like a two person cult for this band.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:13pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

hey there, Greg. I am totally enjoying this robot set!
Avatar 7:13pm Martinibomb:

They sound great! I love well done puppet shows
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:13pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

i will join that cult
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:13pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

DEVO!!!!
Avatar 7:13pm spacebrother:

This part of the playlist was for an aborted "robots" themed show.
Avatar 7:13pm Mr Fab:

That was from their debut 5-disk set album.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:14pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Chris and I have been watching the Devo video compilation pretty much on a loop this week :-)
Avatar 7:14pm Martinibomb:

I thought Devo was going to tour in 2020 but so far nothing..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:14pm Rich in Washington:

Anybody here get to see Devo do their Hardcore tour a couple of years ago?
Avatar 7:14pm Martinibomb:

I did
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:14pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I would LOVE to see Devo live!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:15pm Rich in Washington:

That's cool! I've been on another Devo binge lately.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:15pm Rich in Washington:

Devo was my first ever concert.
Avatar 7:15pm Martinibomb:

my pal reload played bass on that tour and got me backstage. got a cool photo
Avatar 7:15pm spacebrother:

I saw the hardcore tour. I cried all through it.
Avatar 7:15pm spacebrother:

Wow, MB!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:15pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

That's a pretty awesome first concert!!!
Avatar 7:16pm spacebrother:

My first concert when I was 14 was Devo's first tour.
Avatar 7:16pm spacebrother:

My dad had to drive me there and pick me up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:16pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I am so in awe of you guys right now :-)
Avatar 7:17pm spacebrother:

There were maybe 200 people there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:17pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

My first concert was Thin Lizzy :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:17pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Non-parent concert
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:18pm Rich in Washington:

My older brother drove me all the way to town and then picked me up. I remember jock type dudes in Camaros and pickups driving by the theater yelling "WHY DON'T YOU GO LISTEN TO VAN HALEN? DEVO ARE FAGS!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:18pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

My first concert EVER was Roy Rogers and Dale Evans, which makes me about 102 ;-)
Avatar 7:18pm spacebrother:

I remember those types!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:18pm Rich in Washington:

That must've been cool, GG! Love Thin Lizzy.
Avatar 7:18pm spacebrother:

GREAT first concert GG!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Rich - I was deaf for a week and Phil Lynott smiled at me :-)
Avatar 7:19pm Don-O:

Mine was Paul Anka at Knott's Berry Farm. I was WAY too young to notice.....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

(I was about 3 for the Roy Rogers one)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19pm Rich in Washington:

It was when if you didn't have a feathered hair-helmet and stupid flared designer jeans, assholes in beater muscle cars would yell DEVO! at you.
Avatar 7:20pm Don-O:

HAL had to show up sooner or later.....
Avatar 7:21pm Martinibomb:

I have always liked this damn song daisy. It's a catchy tune.
Avatar 7:21pm spacebrother:

Probably should have played this first.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:21pm Rich in Washington:

Kubrick based this part on an actual computer singing on an electronic music compilation.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:21pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

My daughter was really into Linkin Park and stuff like that when she was about 14 and she wore all black, so teens used to yell "FILTHY GOTH!!" at her. Teenagers have not evolved at all ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:22pm Rich in Washington:

Oh man! I haven't heard this in years! I didn't know it was by Lothar! I just remember hearing it on the radio many many years ago.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:22pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Oooo!! Lothar and the Hand People!!! Yes!!!
Avatar 7:23pm spacebrother:

@Rich - I think I remember that. Kubrick was obsessive compulsive. In a good way.
Avatar 7:24pm Martinibomb:

I ran into a film nerd who thinks Kubrick is over rated. LoL They do exist
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:24pm Rich in Washington:

It's on an old record Music From Mathematics.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:25pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

How can you watch Dr Strangelove and think Kubrik is overrated????
Avatar 7:25pm Martinibomb:

them film schools can teach you about kubrik but they can't make you like his films.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:26pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

THE FLYING LIZARDS!!!!!!!! happy happy happy happy
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:26pm Rich in Washington:

Killer's Kiss has a really weird Musique Concrete-ish passage in its score. The rooftop chase scene. It's really peculiar.
Avatar 7:26pm Martinibomb:

Flying Lizard maybe a contender for my top 5 faves what say you SpaceBro?
Avatar 7:27pm Martinibomb:

Flying Lizards, Devo, Plastics they are all up there for me.
Avatar 7:27pm spacebrother:

@MB - In my top 20. Sorry.Maybe 10.
Avatar 7:28pm spacebrother:

@ Rich - That's probably the one I haven't seen.
Avatar 7:28pm spacebrother:

the one Kubrick
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:28pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

You're making me nostalgic for pints of bitter in my old student union building :-)
Avatar 7:28pm spacebrother:

@MB - That's probably why we should talk more!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:29pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

The student union building in my old university in the 80s had a Kiss pinball machine :-)
Avatar 7:30pm Mr Fab:

Yeah, The Flying Lizards did some really good originals here and there. "T.V." is one of my faves.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:32pm Rich in Washington:

OH YEAH!
Avatar 7:33pm spacebrother:

Pretty "normal' stuff for this crowd! But I love it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:34pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Can't beat a bit of Beefheart :-)

Avatar 7:36pm spacebrother:

@ Mr. Fab - Thank you for being my crutch today (and last week!)
Avatar 7:37pm Mr Fab:

My pleasure. Wish I could have been around for this morning's shows.
Avatar 7:39pm Don-O:

Fab, I might come into the live stream with my show from last week after this. Providing my inner spell checker is working....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:39pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Oh my God I love this song SO MUCH :-)
Avatar 7:39pm spacebrother:

Go for it, Don-O!
Avatar 7:40pm spacebrother:

I say...
Avatar 7:40pm Mr Fab:

Sure thing, Don-O. A special "encore Presentation" of the Hour of Crap!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:40pm Rich in Washington:

Me too! I think TVOD was one of the first things I remember downloading from Napster.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:40pm Rich in Washington:

GO DON-O, GO!!
Avatar 7:40pm Don-O:

As mentioned, there will be some bonus 'crap' as well.....just to spice things up.
Avatar 7:41pm Mr Fab:

that Crash Course in Science record actually came out in the early '80s, not 2009. I still have my ancient vinyl copy.
Avatar 7:41pm spacebrother:

I forgot how much I love this song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:42pm Rich in Washington:

I once got a huge box of 7" records from an estate sale leftover thing and there were hundreds of so-so rock and roll records, quite a few keepers, but then THIS single! It was like a dream. I was literally pinching myself.
Avatar 7:42pm Don-O:

I discovered Crash Course after bumping into that YT with them performing on The Uncle Floyd Show. Fell in love with the lead singer as well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:42pm Rich in Washington:

Oh yeah!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:42pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I heard the Grace Jones version first, which is also magnificent, but then I love the original equally as much :-)
Avatar 7:43pm Mr Fab:

my friends and I used to do a Normal parody called "Moist Towelette." Turns out the band Killer Pussy actually recorded THEIR own parody called "Moist Towelette."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:43pm Rich in Washington:

You could do a whole show based on Hot Rod Race/Hot Rod Lincoln and all its answer songs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:43pm Rich in Washington:

HA!
Avatar 7:43pm spacebrother:

I may!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:43pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Bet you'd be hard-pressed to find a moist towelette at the moment! ;-)
Avatar 7:43pm spacebrother:

@ Fab LOLLLL
Avatar 7:43pm Don-O:

Oh, I just got the Esquivel Complete 1954 - 1962 Recordings today. I will be blasting off for the next 2 days!
Avatar 7:43pm spacebrother:

@ GG - LOLLLLLL
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:44pm Ask For Babs:

Sorry - forgot something ;-) lol (cf above)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:44pm Rich in Washington:

Funny how people are hording things like wipes and sanitizers when you actually want OTHER people to have them too for it to work.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:45pm Ask For Babs:

It does beg the question tho - what the hell were people washing their hands with before?? Leaves?
Avatar 7:46pm Don-O:

Oh, Rich! Thanks for spell checking for me earlier today. I feel less motivated to hit myself a little less than usual.
Avatar 7:46pm spacebrother:

I have a whole box of painter's masks that I should sell on ebay.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:46pm Rich in Washington:

It's an easy mistake to make. Plus, I have to proofread things for a living anyway.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:47pm Moist Towelette:

Someone was selling a half-empty bottle of hand sanitizer on Ebay for £5 apparently.
Avatar 7:47pm Don-O:

Put Gene Simmons lips on them and sell them off as KISS bootleg masks!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:47pm Moist Towelette:

@Don-O - genius! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:48pm Rich in Washington:

Last year I was thinking of making a Cratedigger's Lung gift pack and had actually priced bulk paper face masks, which I was gonna rubber stamp with a Cratedigger's Lung logo.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:48pm Rich in Washington:

Nice! A field recording!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:48pm Moist Towelette:

@Rich - you'd be a millionaire now!
Avatar 7:48pm Mr Fab:

Mrs Fab & I were joking about taking all our wipes, water bottles, etc and become "pushers." Like: what you need, bro? Lysol, Arrowhead, I got the good shit, man! Meet me in the alley...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:49pm Moist Towelette:

@Mr Fab - lol!!!
Avatar 7:50pm Mr Fab:

This WoV ep, one of the first records I remember buying. Love it so much. Damn spacebrother, this is really turning into a musical comfort-food show!
Avatar 7:51pm spacebrother:

@ MFab - It's comforting to me too. Very. I'm not worrying about being obscure today. Just happy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:51pm Moist Towelette:

It's an excellent show :-)
Avatar 7:53pm Comfort DJ:

@ GG - Thank you!

10cc <3 One of the greatest and most underrated bands EVER.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:55pm Rich in Washington:

They were brilliant, as were Godley and Creme.
Avatar 7:55pm Comfort DJ:

I'll do a whole 10cc G&C show sometime.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:55pm Moist Towelette:

I have every single one of their albums because I love them that much. I love them so much that I have ever Godley & Creme and Wax album too :-)
