Hi StringOFperils! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:05pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

LL: well, in my yoga class earlier today i could FEEL how crumpled and distracted i am
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:05pm Linda Lee:

must say i'm glad it's friday ~ even though in one respect it doesn't matter a whit.
friday means the flange!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:06pm Linda Lee:

that's an excellent way to describe it :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:06pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

Yes, my schedule is now entirely revolving around WFMU
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:06pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I must must must do an online yoga course - I need a good stretch :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:06pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

You're all in very good hands here :-)
  4:07pm Elizabeth:

I love The Pretty Things! :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:07pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I like that you're all marking the clock via shows ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:07pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

if it weren't for WFMU and my lovely yoga teacher, i would be a real mess
  4:07pm Sally Fielder:

Thats finny u should mention that Georgy; I posted the same sort of message and left my phone number in my building. I had to remove it the next day, as I received calls from more than a few gents who were seeking alternative services.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:07pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

and ^^ what Elizabeth said!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:08pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

The guitar on this is AMAZING! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:08pm Linda Lee:

i know there are some *really lovely* classes online now. damned if i know what they are. Lol
Avatar 4:08pm Photocopy Cha Cha:

Happy Friday GG and listeners! I arrived just in time for the Pretty Things!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:09pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

As well as giving out info today I'm also asking if you have resources relating to your area :-) Email me at DJGG@wfmu.org and I can read them out on the show for listeners :-)
It all helps!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:09pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hi Photocopy Cha Cha! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:09pm Linda Lee:

me, i sit online & get loaded. that's what i do. not ashamed to say so.
hello Photocopy Cha Cha!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:09pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

LL: it's rather overwhelming, actually. i am content to stick close to the core of what keeps me balanced right now. So WFMU, yoga, my therapist once a week and a few 12 Step meetings is my basic routine.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:10pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Things like food donations, hygiene products, mental health services, switchboards, childcare and so on.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:10pm Linda Lee:

beautiful. that's really the key isn't it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:11pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I've been meditating every day and also doing tapping therapy - both hugely beneficial :-)
Avatar 4:11pm StringOFperils:

I always like these broken carousel songs.
Avatar 4:11pm StringOFperils:

Not a metaphor btw
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:12pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@StringOFperils - same! All the particular UK brand of psychedelic whimsy :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:12pm Linda Lee:

must say that i'm seeing real advantages to being in the city right now. people are stepping up. here in the country most of my neighbors aren't even aware there's a pandemic on. 'course, they're not susceptible to human illness either.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:13pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Linda Lee - we're seeing so many lovely acts of human kindness at the moment. It's all very inspiring :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:13pm Linda Lee:

we *must* bring each other through.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:13pm Linda Lee:

it's the only way.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:14pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

We will :-)
Avatar 4:15pm StringOFperils:

That is very true. This year is going to test our mettle, but together, at the level of the individual, we'll get by, and probably learn some valuable new things along the way.
Avatar 4:15pm Martinibomb:

hey georgy and everyone
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:15pm Linda Lee:

agreed!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:16pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

GG; that's a lovely offer. <3
Rob Weisburg has posted an impressive list of artist relief resources on his Transpacific Sound Paradise playlists.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:16pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I'm using this as a time for contemplation, and also as a clearing house - all the ridiculous little time wasting things that obsessed me before that really don't do me any good at all. It helps to have this time and quiet to work out what's really important, I think :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:16pm Jan Turkenburg:

Hi everyone. Listening and enjoying off screen here!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:16pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hi MB! :-)
Avatar 4:17pm Martinibomb:

just dropping by to tell you I love all the music everyone's been playing. I've been outside .. need to get some gardening time in. But I'm here. :-)
Avatar 4:17pm StringOFperils:

Perfect time to show up Jan THE SMOKE is on !
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:17pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Granny - let me know any you think would be useful to give out over the air. :-) Anything I can do to help spread the word! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:17pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hi Jan! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:17pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

GG: i've had great results friom tapping, too! Thanks for reminding me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:17pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@MB - you can come and do my balcony if you'd like ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:18pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Granny - it really helps, doesn't it? :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:18pm Linda Lee:

{soapbox} must say i'm discouraged at the usual political divides intensifying under these conditions. i mean, really? come on! focus! {/soapbox}
Avatar 4:19pm Photocopy Cha Cha:

The Smoke should be on a compilation called !Now That's What I Call T-R-E-M-O-L-O!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:19pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Linda Lee - oh, I'm ignoring all of that ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:19pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

GG: a dear old friend of mine lives in Brighton and has been posting local resources. Also, he works at the library and has been posting storytime videos for kids, i think on the library's YT? I've appreciated all the kindness and creative adaptation i've witnessed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:19pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Photocopy - the phasing on it was outrageously good, wasn't it? :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:20pm Linda Lee:

really good idea dear.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:20pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Granny - I have a friend in the library too!! :-) Small world :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:20pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Granny - send me his details :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:20pm Linda Lee:

have you compared initials? haha
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:20pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

GG: our world's are getting closer. My pal's name is Dan D. <3
Avatar 4:21pm StringOFperils:

Hey, I have NEVER heard this Cherry Smash record. How can this be? The pop-sike mine is a deep cavern.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:21pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Granny - aha! I know Francis who is an excellent local psych band :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:21pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

i'll send you more about Dan, he posts lovely collages and photos on IG.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:21pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@StringOFperils - it certainly is!! ;-)

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:23pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hello Greg!! :-D
Avatar 4:24pm Mr Fab:

Hey all! @StringOFperils - this show has made me realize how skimpy the playlists are in most shows dedicated to the British Invasion. They usually dont delve too far past the usual Beatles/Stones/Animals etc. Georgy digs DEEP.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:24pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hello Mr Fab!!! Deep, deep, and then a little bit deeper still ;-)
Avatar 4:24pm spacebrother:

Hey GG!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:25pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Captain Tom Moore has already past the £20 million mark :-)
Avatar 4:26pm StringOFperils:

@Mr Fab>> True. DJGG has the knowledge, and contrary to her opening remarks a few monets back, her eloquence is nonpareil. (I think it's the plumby accent. :) )
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:26pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Jolly hockey sticks! ;-)
Avatar 4:27pm Photocopy Cha Cha:

@4:09 Linda Lee: I am tempted to get loaded, but then again there are only 2 litres of beer&cider here. The very same 4 cans I had three weeks ago. In other words, come next week I have achieved a month of sobriety! I personally needed this - it has become a problem - but hey, enjoy your drink for me! Cheers!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:27pm Linda Lee:

i've seen the gentleman hiking around the garden. he's amazing! doing himself good as well.
Avatar 4:27pm StringOFperils:

committed some fine typos there
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:28pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Linda Lee - he's lovely, isn't he? :-) There's a little girl in Wales who's set up a thing online to get children all over the world to send him birthday cards :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:28pm Linda Lee:

Photocopy Cha Cha congratulations on a month!
i don't drink, myself, at all. quit in 1987. :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:29pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@StringOFperils - between the playlist and the comments, my typing falls apart quite rapidly every week ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:29pm Linda Lee:

still, gave it a good 15 years, starting age 9. that was plenty. :-)
Avatar 4:30pm Photocopy Cha Cha:

@4:28 Linda Lee: so, using quick math, you have beaten my month 400 times!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:30pm Linda Lee:

hahaah! guess so. but it started with a day. :-)
Avatar 4:30pm spacebrother:

This forced isolation has done wonders for my programming. I've found three Tom Lehrer tracks I've never heard of for Monday's show. DJGG just does it naturally.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:31pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I'll have a cocktail during the Brighton Fringe every year (although that's cancelled this year) and maybe a good glass of a decent red once a year. Maybe a port at Christmas, but that's it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:31pm Linda Lee:

let's hope they don't cancel Christmas as well. :-(
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:32pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Did you say Tom Lehrer, Greg?? :-D OH YES!!! I am so there for that :-)
Avatar 4:32pm spacebrother:

They can't cancel drinking. Well, i guess they can, but unlikely.
Avatar 4:33pm spacebrother:

Yeah, a lengthy commercial, and a song he performed on a radio station in the 1980s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:33pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

The port is genuinely medicinal ;-) Around the Christmas period I get colds/sinuses etc and it opens up the voice so I broadcast and not sound like a frog. lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:33pm Linda Lee:

i beleive there's a town on the Mexican Pacific coast where they've canceled drinking. no beer sales allowed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:33pm Linda Lee:

fantastic flange this week, GG. really superb sounds.
Avatar 4:33pm spacebrother:

@ LL - Probably spring break idiots ruining it for everyone else.
Avatar 4:33pm Sem:

Hello and good day to you, djGG. Greets to the Flanges and Frigates, the Granges and Frigidaires, and the Grudges and Fordfiestas in the house.

Hi GeorgyGirl! Listening while out on my daily walk.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:34pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Linda Lee - it's all super spacey! :-) I'm dipping into LoriHajiTura sitar territory here and there as well ;-)
Avatar 4:34pm spacebrother:

@ GG - I can't believe they had it on the songs list for you to sing!

Hi Rich!!! How's the weather? :-)
Avatar 4:35pm spacebrother:

Hey Rich!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:35pm Snowmist:

i believe that's their concession to the lockdown, Greg. no tourists right now.
Avatar 4:35pm StringOFperils:

I'm not supposed to be consuming alcohol, thanks to a little health issue that is my new friend for life, but I'm not going to abstain entirely, doctors' suggestions or not. I love a pint too much to say farewell. All things in moderation.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:35pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Greg - I'd have left if they didn't ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:36pm Snowmist:

*love* the spacey GG. deeply
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:36pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I love the Snowmist ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:37pm Snowmist:

StringOFperils ~ indeed. moderation is key. balance! let's keep life worth living, too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:37pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I found a small bottle of red wine at the back of my spice rack yesterday and considered that I can't put all of it into a pasta sauce ;-) So, you never know.
Avatar 4:38pm StringOFperils:

Precisely Snowmist. Life is for living.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:39pm Snowmist:

there's a bit of a conversation there, but i do think conditions are forcing us to recognize what 'living' is.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:40pm Snowmist:

as opposed to 'breathing'.
Avatar 4:40pm StringOFperils:

Or worse, merely surviving.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:41pm Snowmist:

exactly!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:41pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I watched a Lifetime movie with my daughter last weekend which was fabulously cheesy :-)
Avatar 4:41pm Sem:

Sharp or runny, gg?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:42pm Snowmist:

are you all watching more tv lately?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:42pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

It was the Loretta Lynn/Patsy Cline story. The foreshadowing was done with a hammer. lol!
Avatar 4:42pm StringOFperils:

Ha ha. Sounds gloppy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:42pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hi Sem!! :-)
Avatar 4:43pm Sem:

Terence McKenna talks, lots of 'em.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:43pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I don't really watch TV, to be honest. Movies, videos, listen to the radio, reading, lots of Audible books. :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:43pm Snowmist:

didn't realize there was a connection! (aside of the music.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:43pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Sem - last Wednesday's Modernists was almost a Terrence McKenna talk. :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:44pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Snowmist - they were best friends :-) Patsy more or less mentored Loretta :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:44pm Snowmist:

really! had no idea!
Avatar 4:44pm Sem:

Happy to check the archive fo that!
Avatar 4:45pm StringOFperils:

TV seems like a bad idea lately. It's like opening a spigot into my living space, issuing a torrent of toxic sludge into my otherwise well-adjusted day. The poison poison poison politics are....well, you know...
Avatar 4:45pm spacebrother:

I played this the other day! Love it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:45pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Sem - almost. I changed my mind at the last minute ... but ... there will be one soon :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:45pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Greg - it's a good'un :-)
Avatar 4:46pm Sem:

Hmmm, Flies on the Monkees. Virus imminent?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:46pm Linda Lee:

StringOFperils ~ actually caught about 30 seconds of a news program the other day. it was appalling!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:46pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Sem - all that scratching!!! Itchy! ;-)
Avatar 4:47pm StringOFperils:

Always loved that Monkees record. It's real caveman stuff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:48pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

The Monkees properly went semi-freakbeat on occasion :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:48pm That's Martini:

i like the Flies cover better than the Monkees side. got a bit more depth.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:48pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

It definitely goes grungier :-)
Avatar 4:49pm StringOFperils:

The pre-fab four. Marketed to kids.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:49pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I saw a psych DJ set some years ago and they dropped The Monkees "Mary Mary" and it was glorious :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:49pm That's Martini:

definitely. like the tempo.
you're really, really making magic with this flange, GG. feel i've stepped through the looking glass into a very nice time past.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:50pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@That's Martini - excellent!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:50pm That's Martini:

yes, the pre-fab four :-)
loveable nonetheless, in their way.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:50pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I love The Monkees. Love love love them :-)
Avatar 4:51pm StringOFperils:

Yeh, Monkees had good things, wheter they had puppet-masters or not. Wasn't a fan of Davey Jones so much. Whatever.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:52pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Papa Nez tho :-) <3
Avatar 4:52pm StringOFperils:

I loved Mike Nesmith's solo work. Micky had a great voice.

every see 'head'? the monkees take a stab at gravitas :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:52pm That's Martini:

every see it? lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:52pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Head is one of my favourite movies EVER :-)
  4:53pm Elizabeth:

Thanks! Georgy for mentioning the teddy bears! I also put my giant sock monkey in the window wearing my Buzzcocks shirt! He is unique!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:53pm That's Martini:

just saw it recently for the first time! what a wacky movie! :-D
Avatar 4:53pm StringOFperils:

Never have seen HEAD. Porpoise Song is godlike.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:54pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Porpoise Song is quite simply one of the greatest songs ever made. :-)
I saw The Polyphonic Spree do that as an encore <3
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:54pm That's Martini:

i'd just like to know how they got away with calling the movie Head.
one of life's mysteries.
Avatar 4:54pm StringOFperils:

Very cool
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:55pm That's Martini:

then again, there was Pussy Galore at about the same time..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:55pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I've seen The Polyphonic Spree twice in concert and both times it was like having a spiritual experience. :-)
  4:56pm Elizabeth:

Here's some Monkees trivia, that you might know already- especially people living in New Jersey- "Pleasant Valley Sunday" - Pleasant Valley Way- is in West Orange, NJ- and that street is what is being referenced in the song!
Avatar 4:56pm Sem:

@That's Martini, in the 80s there was a Canadian band called Teenage Head, which they were obliged to re-name Teenage Heads. Go figure.
Avatar 4:56pm StringOFperils:

'Head' was very much current in the language as referring to psychedlia a the time, and had virtually no sexual overtones in the culture that i can remember, although I was young so I'm biased thinking that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:56pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Elizabeth - I did not know that!!! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:56pm Rich in Washington:

This is so cool!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:57pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Yep "Head" the movie is definitely more psych than sex. lol!
Avatar 4:57pm StringOFperils:

Teenage Head was a big deal around these parts.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:58pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

If Lewis Carroll was still alive during the 60s he'd have made a fortune from UK psychedelia ;-)
Avatar 4:58pm StringOFperils:

Lewis Carroll would have to get royalties off of everything that came out I think
  4:58pm Elizabeth:

And I think one of Ken's agencies/organizations that you mentioned is in the "Oranges"- of which West Orange is part of! East Orange, South Orange, and Orange- there are four of them
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:59pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Elizabeth - this is all excellent geographical info for me! Thank you :-) I never know which places are where. lol
Avatar 5:02pm StringOFperils:

Lots of obscure material today GG. I seem to have an odd affiliation with this stuff, even the records I haven't heard. My childhood was filtered through this time-period, which mad me the peculiar lad I am today.(Beams proudly)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:03pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

true about the word 'head' for those in the know .. but that wasn't everyone, was it..
in fact it was almost no one!

far out!!! digging this set, GG. Still haven't started the soup, though, better get chopping!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:05pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I worked out that if I started playing track one of album one in my collection on the radio - without getting any new stuff at all - I'd still be on the radio three times a week in 20 years' time.
So ... there's a lot ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:06pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Granny - let me provide the chopping soundtrack then :-) <3

wow... :-)

The vocalist's pronounced lisp adds charm here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:07pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

He reminds me a little of Arthur Brown but also Mike Raven the actor/DJ

I love Turquoise- just recently started listening to them! Thanks Dave for the PSA!

Ha ha. Cashing in on whatever it can. Dylan, Kinks, acid-sike, The Move, Woodstock...it's all in there
Avatar 5:13pm Photocopy Cha Cha:

Like I said yesterday on Dark Night Of The Soul (WFMU Drummer), I am glad the local church is doing the (free of charge)deliveries for the elderly & other people at risk. I now have my food supples and the prescription ear medicine (I am so tempted to drink this, 96% alcohol OMG!). I really hate christian political parties (they are really not to my liking here) but I guess this is what most of christians don't really understand, that among other things their religion should be about helping those who need it. So, no complaints here, this local grocery&meds service does not really ask if you are religious or a member (the evangelical lutheran church is actually a so-called religion of the state, like you'll pay church tax if you are member etc.), they simply help.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:13pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I also have a notebook of music I've heard here and there that I'm in the process of acquiring, so the collection continues to grow ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:13pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

Bob lived in Saugerties, though. not Woodstock. just up the road a bit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:15pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Saugerties - how do you pronounce that?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:15pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I know Poughkeepsie is like "Puhkipsy" isn't it?
Avatar 5:16pm StringOFperils:

Also very Kinksy,this. Phenomenal Cat-like
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:16pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

My left leg went to sleep just now so I had to stretch for a bit. the perils of radio ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:16pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@StringOFperils - very much!
Avatar 5:18pm Photocopy Cha Cha:

I wonder if these tracks made their way to some Kinks bootlegs back in the day, like was the case with the Beatles, soundalikes and outfakes among the real stuff
Avatar 5:18pm StringOFperils:

Okay, this is not the same The Bunch that spun off Sandy Denny and Richard Thompson, is it?
Avatar 5:18pm StringOFperils:

probably not
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:18pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Photocopy - probably!!! LOL!!!
  5:19pm Elizabeth:

Saug-er-tees- that is how I pronounce it- I am not sure that is the correct way!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:19pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@StringOFperils - i don't think so. I've just ploughed through the 600+ page book about the whole Folk movement in the UK and I don't remember seeing it. I may be wrong tho! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:21pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

"Electric Eden" - excellent book but REALLY long and detailed :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:22pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

When I was putting the playlist together I wasn't sure about this Rats track ... and then the guitars kicked in ;-)
Avatar 5:23pm Photocopy Cha Cha:

@5:18 DJ GeorgyGirl: You probably have heard the Beatles outfake Peace of Mind/The Candle Burns? Does not sound too much like The Beatles, more like The Pretty Things at their most mellow. The only Beatles connection is is a remote possibility the said track could have been among Apple demos when they shut the shop.
Avatar 5:23pm StringOFperils:

I might check that out. Maybe the library system has it. I'm quite interested in that....time out for backwards guitar....wait...wait...wait...wow it's long.....okay, anyway, English folk revival into its rock thing...very interesting time
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:24pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Photocopy - I remember a spate of things appearing in the 80s purporting to be Beatles bootlegs .. and like you say most of them didn't really even sound like them.
Avatar 5:24pm Photocopy Cha Cha:

this Rats track predicted the faulty compact disc noise (whoosh, whoosh...) by nearly 20 years ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:25pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I'm putting together a ton of shows across all three of the shows I do here at Sheena giving a history of folk in the UK from the twiddly stuff through to the more acid tinged things :-) It's a project ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:25pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Photocopy - ah, the "indestructible" CD ;-)
Avatar 5:26pm Photocopy Cha Cha:

@5:24 DJ GeorgyGirl: Peace of Mind/The Candle Burns appeared already around early 70s, hence the Apple garbage speculation
  5:26pm Elizabeth:

@ Georgy- did you watch "Folk Britannia"? I was looking for it on youtube-
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:27pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Photocopy - and then there's the Toot and a Score in 74 ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:27pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Elizabeth - I did! Yes! Very good too :-)
Avatar 5:28pm Photocopy Cha Cha:

@5:21 DJ GeorgyGirl: OK, all I needed to know ;) Loved the bible like books on Beatles (Lewisohn) & Byrds (johnny Rogan), long and detailed, perfect for long train journeys for instance (I wonder when these will be safe again)

Look fwd to hearing your take on English folk into its rebirth in the 50s onward into 'pop'

Avatar 5:45pm StringOFperils:

I recently read several of Edward St. Aubyn's autobiographical novels about his growing up as part of the monied English class, in the 70s through to today. Known as the Patrick Melrose novels. (There's an excellent 5 part TV production starring the Cumberbatch as Patrick) Princess Margaret appears in a dinner party episode. She comes off rather hideously. It had to have happened.

@5:50 DJ GeorgyGirl: me neither, also not Pentangle (while bert Jansch was still alive... or at all) or any of those, as I was not so much into that stuff at the time. My interest in BritFolk started properly only around 2013 when I found Pentangle's Basket Of Light from Brighton (this could've been across the tracks, since you pointed it out a week ago or so). OK, Vashti Bunyan I liked when she became better known around mid-2000s (better late than never)
