Nate K.'s avatar View Nate K.'s profile Options

Music for the revolution in my head: choogling punks; power pop, both skinny-tied and long-haired; soul shouters and girl groups; bubblegum and acid rock; global fuzz; weirdos and outsiders, and the Weirdos and the Outsiders; Archie Shepp and J. Geils. Plus, live bands.

Hello Nate! Accelerants! Ready to soak my earballs in the Optic Sink.

Burn!

Hey, folks. Live music coming up around 10:00. Natalie from Nots recorded a synth set specifically for our show. "We're not worthy."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:08pm mb:

Bout to Burn it Down! IG made me do it.

Looking forward to Natalie's live set. This is her dad (for real) and of course I love her dearly!

Nate, did I ever mention how much I love the transition from Bethany's show to yours? Well done

Certainly one of the stronger contrasts in the lineup Scott W

@Scott, there's just enough opera to prevent any whiplash lawsuits.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:15pm Joe D.:

still really glad "Gunk Punk" did not catch on as a term
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:16pm Aitch:

it has now Joe D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:16pm ultradamno:

Gunk Funk could have a future though. I imagine most gunks do have one...
  9:16pm CC:

Now a daze all I can do is try to stop my my right leg..!..it's really hard!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:17pm Nate K.:

@Joe D, it feels like a name settled on after a long day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:22pm Joe D.:

"Y'know, something snappy, like "Cock Rock" or "Trap Rap"...."
  9:27pm CC:

what is a person supposed to do when the world is all out of kilter???

dear CC - be like water.

Hey, look who gets namechecked on the page for this (with the delicious looking cover graphic) germhouse.bandcamp.com...

I mean it's not like a dream we are all going to wake up from?!?

Stir it up!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:36pm ultradamno:

Bring on the relaxabilly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:37pm ultradamno:

...but not the chillaxabilly or the gunkabilly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:38pm Nate K.:

@Ultra, an honor.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:40pm Nate K.:

I've been trying to place it; the Cowboys reminds me of the post-post-punk Scritti Politti stuff.
  9:47pm kym:

I loved the Nots track and was convinced it was Niagara-era Destroy All Monsters. Looking forward to the Optic Sink set!
  9:52pm CC:

I like hearing songs about old people dying nowadays?!?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:53pm Nate K.:

@cc, yikes, sorry!
  9:56pm CC:

I found a great version of the Monterey Pop movie on YouTube the other day...two plus hours!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:59pm ultradamno:

I remember seeing Jimi Hendrix's set when I was very young. I've pretty much thought rock music is about setting things on fire ever since.

Otis burns it down too.
  10:02pm CC:

musical style with appropriate lyrics always does it for me!!!
  10:03pm steveL:

Great set. Sad news from the Stranglers. Such an unusual collection of musical voices. So jarring and angular. Black and White was one of my earliest “Punk/NewWave” purchases.
  10:04pm Anon:

Grinding on some killer Thai and super stoked on hearing something fantastic and new. Thanks for the hard work all oxo

Pretty sure you said Memphis?? The king really is dead, loving this though
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:20pm ultradamno:

Memphis is indicated as home on their bandcamp page.

let's hope that we continue to breathe..!..cheerz!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:21pm ultradamno:

Tennessee not Egypt.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:21pm ParUbi:

Somehow the Memphis thing is very reassuring. Sure enough, "life from Memphis"-- the king is dead, long live the weird

Dance Hard Music
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:22pm Nate K.:

Memphis, TN, yeah.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:22pm Handy Haversack:

Kate and I have been listening outside -- great show, Nate! It really feels Burned Down!

Hey, pals.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:23pm ParUbi:

Hey there, HH! How're the things?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:25pm ultradamno:

From the listening I would have guessed SF, it's got a would have fit on Red Spot or played on the same bill as Tuxedomoon and Nervous Gender feel to it (which is praise)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:29pm Rory:

Hey everyone! Live set has been goood!

This is a good band. Not retro but real. Great live set!

Which Korg? Mini what?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:49pm ultradamno:

The stand-in for all social media on the show Middleman was Your Face In A Tube, that's how we'll go to shows, head capsules.

Dude, not just a gym… But SoulCycle’s CEO… That’s nuts.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:51pm ultradamno:

If WWE is an essential service in Florida (as flying fluids go)...yeah, bring back the mosh pit, may as well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:51pm Nate K.:

@Jake, oh shite! I didn't realize it was SoulCycle!

Yup! www.thedailybeast.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:54pm ultradamno:

I feel that was (afraid to watch it again) about the early seasons of Rescue Me, in no small part owing to how bad it got by the end.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:00pm Rory:

I’ve been watching Santo movies on YouTube. That’s where I’m at.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:02pm ultradamno:

You may like this Blue Demon comic book cover then twitter.com...

Love it! Anything Blue Demon & Santo fighting monsters, zombies, mummies, ect.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:18pm ultradamno:

Probably something he couldn't hardly stand
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:24pm Rory:

No, but it is bizarre spectacle and fun.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:25pm Scott Williams:

Jesse Jarnow better do this one with the Hoof & Mouth in 2021! What a spectacle it woulda been this year...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:27pm Nate K.:

Yes!, Scott. I hope we get the chance to see it.
Avatar 11:31pm JakeGould:

It feels so weird to think that 2020 is — effectively — written off already.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:31pm Scott Williams:

We got in 3 practices, Nate - good god! Everyone who saw it got their frow good n' blowed
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:33pm Nate K.:

I was there, man!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:36pm Nate K.:

Probably one of the best Monkees covers I can recall. So much so that I asked Joe McG (I think), "Who is this?"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:39pm Scott Williams:

You were there! Of course! Yep, right up there with Amanda's "As We Go Along" form a few years back (in a waaaaay different vein)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:39pm Scott Williams:

Also, Nate, this whole show's been top-shelf tonight - thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:41pm Nate K.:

Thank you, sir!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:42pm Scott Williams:

Thanks Malkmus for answering the musical question could Lou Reed sing the word if'n?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:42pm Rory:

love this track!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:50pm Nate K.:

Oh, and for the record, I don't think Todd-o-Phonic Todd is on "Wake and Back" tomorrow; the time warp got me again.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:53pm Scott Williams:

Looks like Matt Warwick is doing Wake tomorrow
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:56pm Nate K.:

Yup!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:56pm Nate K.:

Thank as always for hanging out everybody. See you next week.
