Some social distancing, but we’re at the point in this pandemic where people don’t think wearing a mask is “macho” so they are all doing bullshit with no masks in the sun and sand.

Avatar 10:30pm JakeGould:

My weirdest memory of Joy Division is how I bought that New Order “Substance 1987” record… Then heard “Love Will Tear Us Apart” on some radio station… And then how that one song was meaningless to me after hearing the Joy Division “Substance” because I liked the other non-poppy tracks so much.

Avatar 10:39pm JakeGould:

I did a short walk from Union Square to Madison Square Park in Broadway this past Wednesday, and it was fairly stark. There were few people out and pretty much on every side street you saw makeshift sleeping areas. That part of Manhattan has a lot of buildings that used to be industrial and have recessed features. And since everyone is closed, why not? A few had rock solid scaffolding as well.

Since the subways shut down at 1:00am each night I wonder if anyone is headed to the boardwalk tom camp out as well.

LL!
  Swag For Life Member 11:25pm Niall:

"Traveler" is the LP, IIRC. It's been furrrrever.
Avatar 11:26pm spodiodi:

Phillippe that sounds strange, indeed
  Swag For Life Member 11:29pm Niall:

Creme, not Cream. Finnish, I think? Maybe pals with Vladislav Delay!
  11:29pm Lawrence Lui:

Appropos to nothing: been getting into Baby Ford lately...very high class 90s techno ;)
  11:30pm Lawrence Lui:

This Move D track is really good! Gotta listen to the new album.
  Swag For Life Member 11:30pm Niall:

I love that Philip Jeck is kicking out new jams, too. That dude was, like, my lodestar twenty years ago.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:32pm Daniel Blumin:

It's actually a reish, LL. Niall, yeah! You should check out the live session he recorded on me show! wfmu.org...

Someone just cold DM'd me. They haven't tried to sell me mushrooms yet. YET.

@Niall: The original vocoder they used — which was custom built for them — was listed on eBay a decade or so ago and went for $12,000. This site fully documents the listing. Was used for “Ralf & Florian” as well as “Autobahn” www.matrixsynth.com...
  Swag For Life Member 11:37pm Niall:

@JakeGould: Well-spotted! That is /beautiful./
  Swag For Life Member 11:37pm Niall:

Okay, thanks to Daniel I have read the best internet comment in history, and now you can, too:

"Steve in Tulsa:

I'm working in a wine store in Tulsa and i'm playing your show over the store PA. Really rich oil money type just came in. Said he dug the music a lot, wanted to know what it is. Chris Watson has fans in Tulsa now."
Avatar 11:38pm TDK60:

Thanks Daniel. Off to sleep, maybe. Drag racers have been noise-polluting our neighborhood late night for weeks.

Rescate 137 is such a good album <3<3

Thanks DB!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:40pm Daniel Blumin:

Haha, that's from the show, Niall? I seem to recall that one!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:40pm Daniel Blumin:

Mayuko, tis a great one! Wish he'd do another in this vein!!!
Avatar 11:40pm JakeGould:

@Niall: Thanks! They definitely custom built tons of stuff on their own. This fan site is a good source:

kraftwerkfaq.hu...

Also, look at this video for a live performance of “ Tanzmusik” with the first appearance of Wolfgang Flüron drums. That drum thing was the first appearance of it and look at the plywood box on Florian’s setup; serious DIY synth stuff.

  Swag For Life Member 11:45pm Niall:

Jake: I expect a lot of stuff was bespoke back then, if not everything! But they were deffo Sennheiser and possibly EMS vocoder users later on, IIRC.
  Swag For Life Member 11:46pm Niall:

Novamute, perhaps the most underrated label.
Avatar 11:46pm JakeGould:

@Niall: Oh definitely… As you read up on how they grew as a band, the goal was always no nostalgia for gear and anything that could work as good or better was used. Their whole goal was to have their studio on stage at all times.
  Swag For Life Member 11:47pm Niall:

All thoughts turn to the mighty Luke Slater. Oh, man, and that Carl Finlow (I think?) remix of "I Can Complete You," yarrrrr.
Avatar 11:47pm JakeGould:

Like the flute Florian used in the early days with effects was an original “instrument” until synths matured enough to replace it.
  Swag For Life Member 11:48pm Niall:

Nice! And the dude could rock a flute.
  Swag For Life Member 11:49pm Niall:

This Pantha du Prince cut is /smoking./ Another one for the notes.

Thank you, Daniel, from the archives.

Sometimes when listening to your show I want to charge at the radio and violently turn it off, and other times I want to grab my Wunderschnapps Transmissions t shirt out of the drawer and wear it forever. And I wouldn't have it any other way.
