It's going to be a very dark night indeed
Avatar 6:54pm Photocopy Cha Cha 2000:

It is a dark night here in Finland - from this you can guess I am not in the north where the sun is up 24/7 until the end of July.
Avatar 6:56pm Photocopy Cha Cha 2000:

But hey everyone, I am here early! A pity I forgot the tuesday show completely - a mighty fine show based on the track list. There were plenty of stuff unknown to me as well.

I just realized I have never seen Love You till Tuesday - I missed it completely when it was aired here in 1989.

oh right, WFMU already did.... ;)

And I still have not listened to Days of Future Passed in its entirety - I have owned the original pressing for only 25 years.

I know it's a cliche but it really is quite wonderful
Avatar 7:07pm Sylvia (France-NYC):

Good evening, Julie and listeners, I won't listen for long (still on France timezone!), I'll catch up later on the archives, have a good show!!
Avatar 7:07pm northguineahills:

and I got the quote wrong, it's, "shut up and take my money" (as done by Fry).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:09pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I think of these guys as a major transition from Psych to Prog. Btw. Not sure they get any such regard - but I see them in with The Beatles & Floyd & the lot...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:10pm Julie:

Hey there Sylvia! Yes very late for you, but it's ice to see you for a bit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:10pm Julie:

I had no idea Futurama would end up being so important in my life
  7:11pm CC:

Some people claim that they way overproduced themselves???
Avatar 7:12pm Photocopy Cha Cha 2000:

Latecomer to this party.

I mean I LOVE BROADCAST. Love their music, but not when they were around and learned of Trish Keenan's 2011 death only a few weeks ago.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:13pm Julie:

I definitely have listened to them more since she passed
Avatar 7:13pm Photocopy Cha Cha 2000:

@7:11 CC: you mean Moody Blues? Contemporary critics (many of them) apparently hated them for this reason.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:13pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I don't think of Moodys as overproduced cause they sound right to me. If anything but raw Rawk is overproduced to someone - then nothing can be done.
  7:14pm CC:

  7:15pm CC:

That is why I said some people...RR...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:15pm Julie:

some folks only like garage rock. it's just a different sound
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:17pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

i.e. - Produced doesn't mean Overproduced. Necessarily.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19pm Julie:

When I think of overproduced I think of the change that happened around 86, 87 too much synth too much everything
  7:20pm CC:

Back in the late sixties early seventies people used to be critical of those bands that use too much orchestration...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:21pm Julie:

I only recently learned they call that "baroque pop"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:21pm Julie:

I love any mix of classical and rock/pop
Avatar 7:21pm Photocopy Cha Cha 2000:

Ha - I was wondering where I have heard this before, but Brigitte Bardot's Contact is indeed the sample used in Flieger by Death In June. Both artists also share ideologies/opinions not everyone agrees with so to speak.
  7:22pm CC:

Kind of like how Jazz men and bluesmen used to have their differences???
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:22pm Julie:

yeah I'm always unsure if I should play DIJ or not. I know Fabio is very anti boyd rice
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:23pm WR:

Hi all. This show going to 1AM again? It's not dark out yet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:23pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

There were people who followed Sgt. Pepper with less taste than the Moodys in their rush to get all Studio. We were just talking about the doors other night - & they fell into that a little bit. & not as badly as others.... A concern in any era...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:24pm Julie:

haha sorry WR only till 10.
  7:25pm CC:

Jim Morrison's lyrics was what set the Doors apart...Soft Parade!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:27pm Summer and Michael and Sylvia:

Loved that Sundays track, Julie!
Avatar 7:27pm Photocopy Cha Cha 2000:

@7:22 Julie: I would say Bardot is more outspoken about her opinions. Death In June is harder to define regarding any ideologies, but let's say his opinions might not be to everyone's liking.
Avatar 7:27pm Sylvia (France-NYC):

trivia: I discovered The Sundays trough Buffy The Vampire Slayer :)
Avatar 7:28pm Sylvia (France-NYC):

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:28pm Julie:

that's another thing! I never expected Buffy to be SO good
Avatar 7:28pm Sylvia (France-NYC):

oh my, Buffy is everything
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:29pm Julie:

movie buffy turned out to be a real MAGAt
  7:32pm CC:

You must be a smart girl Julie you're not supposed to socialize with people who don't live in your own household!!!
Avatar 7:32pm Photocopy Cha Cha 2000:

I never should have returned that Sundays album to the library! Thanks for playing them.
Avatar 7:32pm Sylvia (France-NYC):

I haven't watched the movie, and probably never will, don't want to ruin what came to be after
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:40pm Julie:

they are really not connected in any way. She moved to a new town and makes only passing references to her old home
Avatar 7:41pm Sylvia (France-NYC):

it's set in LA then, ok I see
Avatar 7:43pm Photocopy Cha Cha 2000:

Well Julie you at least knew Broadcast to some extent at the time, I completely ignored them! Were they hyped by music press or what did I find off-putting, can't remember. Well, turns out they gigged quite a lot around Tender Buttons which is when I lived in UK, so I missed on so much by being stubbornly ignorant. It is always unfair when a talented (and apparently enjoying her life very much, from what I have read) person like she was dies much too early.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:44pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I have a fairly strong antipopulist streak : I shy away if something's too popular. Applies to Cobain & not Broadcast of course. Another thing actually happens with me - is I get a sense an Artist is gonna be a heavy - & I don't always feel ready to fall in love & go thru the ringer of what will be involved. Nick Drake the major example of that for me...
Actually that's still true with Cobsin! He's my age group & all kinds of things - a little close to home !!
...By the time David was Bowie he was done with the Mod bands... He did have a collaboration or two that was more FolkRawk in between actually! A band called "Feathers'...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:45pm Julie:

oooh that sounds cool are there recordings?

  8:05pm Larry Hagman's Dead Horse:

Julie, did u fancy most, David Starsky, Ken Hutchinson, or Huggy Bear?

Huggy Bear had amazing style. I was definitely a Hutch fan.

I saw Cranes in 2004 but have heard no albums after Population Four, which I already did not like much.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:10pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Interview with Bowie Producer Visconti - discusses some early Bowie history
...@ least I think this is the one - I've listened to so much stuff... :
  8:11pm Larry Hagman's Dead Horse:

i thought that was gonna be Weird Al's version
Avatar 8:12pm Photocopy Cha Cha 2000:

@8:08 Julie: Forever for me.The early stuff like Selflessness (or what the first 12" was called) is lovely too, as are Loved and Wings of Joy. It is just I have not listened them almost at all since 1999.
  8:12pm CC:

My Aunt Sarah showed up I got to go out into the front yard and turn the music up and socialize at a distance for a few minutes...bbl...:)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:16pm Julie:

See ya later CC!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:16pm WR:

Pops up from worm hole of books I have about Bowie before 74. The Feathers track Ching-a-Ling is on the deluxe 2 CD release of the David Bowie album on Decca Deram.

Will visit the Quatro interview you did. I expect much different due to differences between you and Todd and also she's currently flogging her new stuff.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:53pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Pretty true. Did not do well with performing Live - most of it probably yeah.
Avatar 8:54pm Photocopy Cha Cha 2000:

Yes, from what I have read Nick Drake's performances were few in number and quite hit and miss, at times apparently brilliant but no communication with audience and long tuning breaks between songs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:55pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Got good reviews & regard of Musicians but didn't sell - & that messed him up.

Was thinking about Elton John today....and the duck outfit onstage. The duck outfit. Never grasped the choice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:01pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Drake ad infinitum... Was thinking there's such a contrast of the sincerity & depth of his expression - & the immaculate precision of his method - vocally & as guitarist. Adding Performer / Entertainer / Promoter was too much to ask...
  9:01pm CC:

Still stuck out in the front yard but I'm listening intently!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:03pm Julie:

that was no regular duck outfit that was a Bob Mackie duck outfit
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:06pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

With Elton I'm thinking for me he's what I think The Who is for everybody else! In sense that I don't know much more than the Hits & later periods - & it's not actually enuff.
...As for duck costumes & the rest - how would you parse what Performing & Identity meant for Reginald? He was extremely good @ it in any event!
...& then there's Nyro...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:06pm Julie:

Daya do you have a Nyro story? I feel like you would have a Nyro story?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:07pm Julie:

Elton was also super shy so he put on a big show to hide in
  9:08pm Larry Hagman's Dead Horse:

lovely Nyro, good choice Miss Julie
Avatar 9:09pm still b/p:

When Mackie "offered to create a Donald Duck outfit for John's Central Park gig, it was too good an opportunity to pass up." Didn't know that. But how does one arrive at that particular idea and that offer for that person and that occasion? Get Mackie on the phone.

I might need to acquire some Nyro.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:09pm Julie:

thank you!
  9:09pm Larry Hagman's Dead Horse:

Yep, Elton deffo very shy lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:09pm Julie:

Maybe he'd wanted to get Cher in one for years and knew only EJ would have the balls for it
Avatar 9:09pm Photocopy Cha Cha 2000:

I'd like to hear a Nyro story as well. Nick Drake stories are usually too heartbreaking.
  9:11pm Daya:

Yeah, I do have a Laura story, you know me too well ;)
We DO have to talk at some point, SO many stories we need to talk about!

I wanna tell one of those made up stories like DJ Irene has the descendant of one of Laura Nyro's cats or something

I'm obsessed with that first Genesis album.
  9:20pm Daya:

When to school with a cousin (or relative) for hers.
  9:20pm Daya:

Yes, early Genesis is SO much different than their later work. That’s one band that definitely evolved!
  9:22pm Dean:

Genesis is more like: first album, followed by second album, then third, fourth... Every step was different from the last. The first album was largely a product of the producer Jonathan King.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:23pm Julie:

hiya Dean!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:24pm Julie:

but I think the other albums are more like each other than like the 1st one
  9:24pm Larry Hagman's Dead Horse:

Jonathan King: absolute legend

its like southern death cult versus cult. or the first MBV album.

I first got exposed to Genesis with “Wind & Wuthering” (‘Your Own Special Way’) but then went back and discovered their earlier stuff.
Avatar 9:29pm Photocopy Cha Cha 2000:

To think for years I had absolutely no idea what these lyrics were about. It was not that rare but neither that common for songs about "these things" to chart in the UK or elsewhere.
  9:29pm Larry Hagman's Dead Horse:

invisible touch is easily genesises best album if u clean your ears out
  9:31pm Larry Hagman's Dead Horse:

we're having fun too
Avatar 9:31pm Photocopy Cha Cha 2000:

I am slowly starting to "get" Genesis. In spite of early exposure (too early, I was 8 years old)to "The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway" I never got into them before this show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:32pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I'm quite bad @ picking up on lyrics often. Funny. I just let Music submerge me...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:34pm Julie:

with cocteau's early work you have no choice. No way you understand Liz

Yeah the 'good' early Genesis just never crossed my path somehow. Maybe not distributed in the U.S. so much...
  9:35pm Larry Hagman's Dead Horse:

dont go blaming the distributors
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:35pm Julie:

oh yeah I think it was like Empty Sky didn't come out till the mid70s in the US when they were already famous
Avatar 9:36pm Photocopy Cha Cha 2000:

@9:34 Julie: are any of their lyrics, even later ones, understandable? To me it is just melodic syllables.

Trespass was released on 8-Trak in USA in 1970

Heaven or Las Vegas is pretty intelligible that's why I'm not crazy about it

My older brother spoonfed me masses - & he had King Crimson as it happened...maybe he just didn't like Genesis!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:39pm Julie:

Even my hip sister had a couple genesis records, Foxtrot and Duke I think

A few artists this evening have sounded like Kate Bush. Including Kate Bush.

Trespass yes Genesis to Revelation, no

@still yeah I obviously have a thing for that kinda voice!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:41pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Clearly Kate has had a huge but kind of stealthy influence.

@9:38 Julie: I'm not sure which one of the bunch I got from the library I listened first to, but Heaven Or Las Vegas did really hit me right from the first listen, it is the one that convinced me of their greatness.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:43pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Mazzy to the core! Thx for keeping them circulating.
  9:43pm Daya:

“Heaven or Las Vegas” was my go-to, for sleeping on planes when I was doing Newark to LA runs, every other week in the early 90s, but yeah, good luck trying to figure out those lyrics pre-internet! ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:43pm Julie:

@cha cha yes i hear that a lot. I think what you hear first makes a huge difference. For me it wsa Treasure.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:43pm Julie:

I think I am stuck in the 90s
Avatar 9:44pm Photocopy Cha Cha 2000:

@9:39 Julie: both are lovely, I really need to listen to them more. Like I have said many times, I might never have become this interested in them if it was not for this show.

Well it becomes apparent how much indispensable music was happening then - it wasn't just Grunge...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:46pm Julie:

it was a wonderful time for female singers and female led bands

"The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society" is, just like all the best work by Brothers Davies, perfect songs about the human condition.

Hitchcock - & I'm odd into Julian Cope...
It is heartbreaking because in the 1990s we thot the internet would decentralize everything - we were transcending Left & Right politically - getting a new kind of psychedelia - & on & on. Ending the Cold War...

Like Julian too!

I'm going to watch a 1965 debate featuring James Baldwin and William Buckley: "Is the American Dream at the expense of the American Negro?"
More than half a century on, I expect it to be frustrating and dispiriting. Maybe disturbing. But interesting.
  9:50pm Daya:

Yes, 80s-early 90s were a great time for female musicians, who all owe a huge debut to Kate.
I saw (among others) The Slits, Tori, Sarah, met Aimee Mann and Kate, etc...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:51pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Just picking up on Baldwin. He's the stuff.

While I am always sad when Gigolo Aunt comes in, signalling the end of the show, I am so happy you'll come back on Monday!!!
