BBQ in a Radio Birdman mood?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:12pm Nate K.:

@Ultra, the whole record is like that. A slightly more trad-punk mood. Lotta Saints action, too.
Avatar 9:15pm JakeGould:

@Scott: So is there anyone marking the days in the skeleton crew with like ticks on the wall. Like IIII then a \ for the 5th day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:17pm Nate K.:

@Jake, there definitely is.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:20pm ultradamno:

Gizmos, one of those bands that ended their run with literally no one who started it.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:21pm Nate K.:

@Ultra, truly one of the most quintessentially American bands that no one in America cares about.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:23pm Nate K.:

Love how threatened by glam that "regular dude" was.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:24pm Ken From Hyde Park:

@Jake - On Wake 'n' Bake this morning, Ken said Matt Warwick was marking the days like that, but was four days short. Also: Hi, everybody!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:26pm Nate K.:

@KFHP apparently all the numbers are a little off right now. : \
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:26pm ultradamno:

Angry Samoans kind of built a career on that sort of glamphobia.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:27pm Nate K.:

@Ultra, indeed.
Avatar 9:28pm JakeGould:

@KenFromHydePark: “Matt Warwick was marking the days like that…” Good! It takes 4 days to really realize what’s happening so that is acceptable.
Avatar 9:29pm javakid:

see this buffalo album is from 1973 and feels like the inspiration for Stillwater from Almost Famous
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:30pm ultradamno:

Who will play a beach in Florida first? Kid Rock, Charlie Daniels maybe Ted Nugent?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:32pm Nate K.:

I think Stillwater was supposed to be a little bit Zeppelin and a little bit Humble Pie before Frampton left.
Avatar 9:32pm javakid:

@Nate - this is getting heavier but that was where my head was at
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:33pm Nate K.:

Kid Rock is just dying to, you know it. Nuge talks a big game, but he's probably quarantining.
Avatar 9:33pm JakeGould:

@ultradamno: You know what needs to be a concern? Everyone from NYC and related places who have “wintered” in Florida and are just about now planning on flying back home… Mark my words; new outbreaks on Long Island and such.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:34pm Nate K.:

@javakid, it's definitely '70s bombast to the point of near self-parody.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:34pm ultradamno:

@Jake One of this first things that happened is they arrested a guy from Pennsylvania who was wanted for murder. If they hadn't nabbed him, he would have wandered off somewhere else.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:35pm ultradamno:

Avatar 9:39pm JakeGould:

Phew… Glad they stopped one lone murder suspect and let everyone else party.

Covidcasting might play into the fears of people who already believe the virus can be transmitted by 5G towers. www.yahoo.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:42pm Nate K.:

@ultradamo, they get the fear they deserve . . .
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:43pm ultradamno:

@Jake Well, you have to draw the line somewhere, and it's not professional wrestling, massage parlors or, I'm guessing, guitar shaped casinos.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:43pm Nate K.:

Hey, folks. Tom's live band is NEXT WEEK. Time is meaningless to me. Apologies to Tom and Qlowski.
Avatar 9:47pm JakeGould:

All I gotta say is: Kids stuck at home for 2-4 months like this will definitely need some kind of therapy. And face it: This is not ending in 30 days in NY at least.
Avatar 9:49pm javakid:

Thanks for playing the Jackie Lynn. Heard Therese play it a couple nights ago and was hooked.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:50pm ultradamno:

Plus domestic violence is evidently up making it worse for a lot of them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:51pm Nate K.:

@javakid, or sure. I was eally excited for this to come out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:51pm ultradamno:

I mean, that's never good, but feeling you're between a rock and a hard place if you venture out...
Avatar 9:52pm JakeGould:

Anyway, here’s to all the kids named “Covid” or “Corona” who will be born 8-9 months from now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:54pm ultradamno:

There needs to be a campaign discouraging that stuff! Social distancing does not stop at the bedroom! We've got a golden opportunity to cut down on overpopulation here, let's not have a baby boom.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:55pm Rory:

There’s a small chance we can go out in small numbers during fall. When Dr.Fauci said 18 months I took him seriously. This truly is a marathon. Don’t believe any of the dates when we might be able to go out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:55pm ultradamno:

Special Interest get it. This is great.

The Pyramids almost sounding like Sun Ra's Tiny Pyramids
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:47pm Nate K.:

@ultra, yeah, I think the influence is certainly there.

Keen on Sparks special, 5am Sunday start for me, so perhaps not live.

Found a cool clip of the Pyramids for later viewing if anyone's interested: www.youtube.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:03pm ParUbi:

cool find!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:09pm Nate K.:

@Mariano, nice. I'll check that out. How's NOLA? Is it totally shut down?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:13pm steveo:

Good evening. I think this may be my first Pavement song. It's not too bad!
Avatar 11:14pm coelacanth∅:

Yay Pavement!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:18pm Rory:

Great show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:19pm Nate K.:

@SteveO, I ride for Pavement. I get that not everybody digs them, but that album is objectively something special, IMH(objective)O.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:19pm mariano:

Nate: It's pretty much the same as everywhere, I think. It's pretty dead, but you still see people out, in pairs at most from what I've seen. Fair number of joggers and cyclists. It's normally not a very crowded city outside of the Quarter and a couple of other areas so haven't seen/heard of too much friction about distancing. Don't think we've had any of those ridiculous protests or defiant megachurches. The (bad) lunacy increases the farther north you go in Louisiana.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:21pm Nate K.:

@Mariano, that all, ultimately, sounds good, especially for the long term.
  11:24pm james:

really random..... im trying to find a frank zappa... i thinks its zappa song. It's super meta and describe how to write a rock and roll song and each band member comes in 1 at a time as they describe it. I dont even know who to ask and over here might be my best bet.
  11:24pm james:

and i dont think i imagined it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26pm Aitch:

Strangely chirpy that Atmosphere cover
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:28pm Nate K.:

@James, I'm not much of a Zappa fan. Sorry.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:29pm mariano:

James: I don't know, but I have every confidence in the AccuHiveMind, which has come to my rescue on more than one occasion. If not during this show then keep trying. Who's the Zappa go-to among the DJs?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:29pm Scott Williams:

@james, sounds like the Matching Mole song "Signed Curtains". I can think of an old Mothers song where Zappa describes what each bandmember is doing (sax player is blowing is nose), but it's definitely not a rock song. I think it's on Weasels Ripped My Flesh
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:29pm steveo:

Hey Nate, I'm here to hear what you're playing, and I'm glad to hear something I've never listened to before. What I said was kind of an inside joke between me and the voices in my head. I'm sorry for how it came off...
  11:31pm SeanG:

kicks ass show Nate!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:32pm mariano:

Hah! What'd I tell you, James? There's also a live clip of King Kong where
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:34pm mariano:

James: I know this probably isn't it, but there's this live clip of Zappa and the Mothers at the BBC in '68 doing King Kong, where Frank is explaining the music a bit at the beginning: www.youtube.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:35pm ParUbi:

WFMU is a beautiful thing
  11:36pm james:

Awesome. Not what I was looking for but an incredible performance
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:36pm Nate K.:

@StevO, no worries! I didn't take it in any sort of way. Just preaching the word of Pavement. haha. Thanks so much for tuning in.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:41pm Scott Williams:

Cherry Blossoms giving me pleasant JOMF vibes
Avatar 11:44pm JakeGould:

Hey Nate! Something I noticed about quarantine playlists on WFMU… Lots of DJs are using the later part of their shows to play ambient, experimental and just “out there“ long tracks. I think a collective need for “mind space” during these crazy times.
  11:44pm CC:

soooo complicated!!!

Ahhhh, Linda Perhacs... when this is all over, someone's gotta put Parallelograms back in the old bin
