There's got to be a soundbite from HBO last sunday you could use...poor spite store.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:02pm Nate K.:

So happy to be back, folks. Thanks for hanging out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:03pm Handy Haversack:

It's too up! Burn it down!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:03pm Nate K.:

@ultra, it was a satisfying finale, I thought.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:06pm Nate K.:

First attempt at a prerecorded show in this particular manner, so hang in there.
  9:07pm Chris Sponer:

The offices of Christoper M Spooner Elementary School are checking in to say "what's up, ballers."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:09pm mariano:

Hey Nate and fellow burnouts! I was lucky enough to have seen Nat Adderley at Sweet Basil back around 1992, great show, great venue.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:10pm Alex of Chicago:

Burn it all down, for real!

Love this Opal tune.

Spoonie!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:14pm Scott Williams:

Sounding great, Nate! But of course, it IS Kendra Smith...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:14pm mariano:

This show always makes me think of the Simpsons episode where Ralph Wiggum and the invisible leprechaun who tells him to burn things. "Burn them all!" www.youtube.com...
  9:18pm Chris Sponer:

Hopefully you can go back to being Nate The K soon, instead of PS K-Nate.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:21pm Alex of Chicago:

That's..., not Neil Young?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:23pm ultradamno:

Nope. Apparently not. Though they are Canadian... www.discogs.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:25pm mariano:

Wow, we were having a Withnail & I talk during an earlier show, so when I saw the name Dundas, I immediately wondered if it was David Dundas, who wrote that amazing guitar-based soundtrack for the movie. Apparently not though. And apparently David Dundas is now Lord David Dundas.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:25pm Nate K.:

@Spoonie I'm half of the AV Club, Stephanie is the other.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:26pm Handy Haversack:

DUN-dus? Or Dun-DASS? I have a friend who uses the former, but the street in Edinburgh is the latter.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:27pm Tommy in Neversink:

Many the tunes so far sound very Neil Young influenced...which is a good thing
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:28pm ultradamno:

Ontario, like Young, in fact (at least that's where the label was based)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:28pm Chop Scott:

Sounds great Nate! Cheers to you & the board op!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:28pm Handy Haversack:

@mariano: Do you think you look normal, Your Honour?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:29pm mariano:

I've heard it pronounced "DUN-dus" in documentary stuff on W&I, it's the way Bruce Robinson says it. Interestingly, though Withnail was based on Robinson's friend Vivian MacKerrell, the real-life weekend in the country was actually Robinson with Dundas. And Monty was based on Bertolucci, who apparently tried to importune him on the set of a movie.

I forgot to thank all of the marathon pledgers, so I want to take the time right now to give a HUGE THANKS. So, HUGE THANKS.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:32pm Nate K.:

Hey, Kevin the Nate.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:34pm Aitch:

Shouldn't it be more bald than that?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:35pm Handy Haversack:

@sinner: Not sure I mentioned this (it's been a WEEK): but it was pretty awesome being on the phones across the glass when you did "Radio Free Europe" at the Sinfonia that wasn't. That is a HARD song -- I have butchered at karaoke many a time. You all did it with *style*! Respect.
  9:37pm rw:

Evening! Burnin' it Down again, I see.

@Aitch - ah, another member of the tribe!
  9:38pm kev:

I tried to adopt you during the marathon you could have been Nate Kevinson
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:39pm Handy Haversack:

It's going to need its feet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:40pm ultradamno:

Kev Nattelson would be good too.
  9:44pm rw:

Is Lou singing about Laurie Anderson?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:44pm mariano:

Here hare here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:45pm Aitch:

@mariano, indeed I am.
  9:46pm rw:

I heard this Eno song in a dream once many decades ago. It made me happy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:49pm Aitch:

Someone must have left it underneath the carpet?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:49pm Nate K.:

@rw the stuff about Lou's love for Laurie Anderson was one of the most humanizing parts of an otherwise fairly unflinching bio about him I just read.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:51pm Nate K.:

@rw But Lou also considered Doc Pomus to be one of his mentors, hence the cover.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:51pm ultradamno:

By the way, all of you who were on the Morricone Island board earlier. Looks like Robert Longo deleted that post about Terrence Malick being dead, further strengthening the idea that he got him confused with Terrence McNally.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:52pm mariano:

Oh no way! When I first saw the headline out of the corner of my eye I thought it might be Malick.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:53pm Paddlefoot:

This program is enjoyable!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:54pm mariano:

Wow, Slum of Legs: love that name!
  9:56pm Chris Sponer:

This Slum Of Legs album is the best new album I've heard in a long time. Too bad for them that I'll always associate them with trying to make my way through a pandemic.
  9:56pm rw:

Ha! Thanks Nate. I figured if anybody knew it would be you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:58pm Nate K.:

@Spoonie, yeah, their record dropped at an . . . unfortunate moment.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:00pm ultradamno:

Right now I think Dispatches From Elsewhere is going to be thing that will be wrapped up in this experience for me. Like Ghost World with 9/11.
Avatar 10:00pm Hams:

thanks for pullin' through, nate. good to be here.
  10:04pm Chris Sponer:

The New Pornagraphers' Together is always going to be linked in my head to rough stuff after the 2008 crash, but damn if it doesn't make it stronger for me. I look forward to many years with the now heavier SOL album! (I hope.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:07pm ultradamno:

This is a really good record. I like Meet Me In The City a lot.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:09pm Handy Haversack:

Really like that Slum of Legs album.
  10:11pm Jeff formerly from Rahway:

This new Lewsburg record is rather Velvets-esque.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:12pm mariano:

Hah! The only thing that came up in a Google search for this Lewsburg is @ParUbi's listener profile :)
  10:13pm Ignore Function:

Great set!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:13pm ultradamno:

I was thinking Television, but they're in the same ecosystem
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:13pm mariano:

Gotta have this song!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:23pm ultradamno:

Dum Dum Boys and Dum Dum Girls should combine into a supergroup called Dum Dum Hermaphrodites

Hello fellow burn it down listeners
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:29pm mariano:

My cousin's youngest daughter has a really smart mouth and is very quick-witted, especially for a 9-yo. Once when I was looking after her she took a pack of Dum Dums from the candy bowl. I said "Ooh, Dum Dums... perfect candy for you." Without missing a beat she said "What's your perfect candy? Fat fats?" Still feeling that burn!
  10:30pm sufferwords:

actively listening to radio counts as proper quarantine behavior - this show makes me feel like i’m cheating and about town with my crew
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:32pm Stevel:

Oh man!

J. Giles Band was always good at what they did.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:33pm Nate K.:

@sufferwords, I like that, "this show makes me feel like i’m cheating and about town with my crew."
  10:33pm rw:

Nice pick; that J Geils.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:34pm Nate K.:

@Stevel I think that's the perfect way to sum up J. Geils Band.

Hey Nate! How you holding up?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:55pm Handy Haversack:

Tryin' to not get anything done for a few minutes here at the end of the night!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:57pm Nate K.:

I forgot that was the Zappa cover. The track listing on that record is very confusing. Also, interesting fact: the main dude in Electronic Hole, Phil Pearlman, his son, Adam, was the American Al Qaeda kid. Crazy.
Avatar 10:57pm JakeGould:

It’s a sad and beautiful world.
  10:58pm sufferwords:

Seems to working out well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:02pm Handy Haversack:

An almost Kensian "CURVE" shout!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:03pm Nate K.:

@Handy, it was a tribute, if you will.
  11:05pm wendy del formaggio:

The guitar on this Sonny Vincent track (especially the beginning) reminds me of Olive. The Japanese psych metal band, not the Ken Nordine song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:05pm mb:

That Pearlman antidote is blowing my mind. I thought the fact that Adam traded underground metal tapes thru the mail with a Phish head was as much as my mind could handle about that story. Only here on WFMU, folks.
