hiya Chresti! Rev Rabbit, James and Daya!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:12pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Prince to me is~was this Gemini anomaly of the most broadly talented both Musician - Performer ...but someone I never really needed. (Bring brutally candid.) But to die @ some random # like 54... that we could no longer wonder what that Talent was going to be used for ...as Bowie most of the time sounded like the Future of Rawk...
Prince had interesting identity situations - but I wish he was less of an Identity Artist (I mean like Warhol not I.D. politics) on MTV - & more of an Artist...

Weird, when I saw Yes in ‘77 (I think), Donovan opened for them, which I thought was an odd choice.

Yes, it was Aretha.

Hello, in other words.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:32pm Julie:

Hiya SOP!!
  7:34pm Dean:

I saw Yes with Donovan in (I thought) '76, when indeed Yes played on Aug. 1, but I see they were also there in Sept. '77, both times at the Aladdin. Would they have toured two years in a row with Donovan?
Avatar 7:34pm Photocopy Cha Cha 2000:

hey sorry, is it just on my end or is this a bit too loud - I mean it is quite distorted here.
  7:34pm Dean:

A lot of distortion here, too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:35pm Julie:

I think it's this particular song it distort-y
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:36pm Julie:

it wasn't even peaking I think it's intentionally noisy
  7:36pm Dean:

I was hearing it pre-this song...but it has cleared up with Emilie Simon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:37pm chresti:

So in 76, Yes opened for Donovan,and in 77, Donovan opened for Yes?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:37pm Julie:

oh good thanks Dean. and Hi!!
Avatar 7:38pm Photocopy Cha Cha 2000:

also your voice & the bananarama was quite harsh-sounding + that Francoise Hardy track as well so must be something else. anyways this Emilie Simon sounds better
Avatar 7:39pm Daya:

chreti: I believe it was on their “Going For The One” tour.
  7:40pm Dean:

Is that so, chresti? Donovan opened when I saw them...and Wakeman was back with the band, so maybe it was '77. I just remember driving late at night to Vegas from SoCal in the desert heat. Show was the next day.

But then if Yes did play in '76, too, with Donavon, that's amazing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:40pm Julie:

how is it sounding now?
Avatar 7:40pm Photocopy Cha Cha 2000:

@7:40 Julie: much better!!
Avatar 7:40pm Daya:

And I know that in the early 70s (maybe the “Fragile”/“Close to the Edge” era, they opened for Grand Funk Railroad ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:41pm chresti:

I don't know, I made it up.
  7:42pm Dean:

Okay, '76 was the solo albums tour with Moraz, which I caught at Anaheim Stadium. That was Gentle Giant(!), Gary Wright, Frampton, then Yes. Among the loudest shows I've ever experienced.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:42pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I'm good with those shows!
Avatar 7:43pm Daya:

Dean: I caught Gary Wright at Woolsey Hall on Yale campus that year. LOTS of smoke machines! ;)

Toon reminds me touch of Epitaph by King Crimson.
Avatar 7:47pm Photocopy Cha Cha 2000:

@7:45 Revolution Rabbit Nov63: Epitaph probably influenced many goth-minded musicians
  7:48pm Dean:

Yes/Grand Funk might not be as oil/water as, say, Ace/Yes in '75, the Relayer tour, or some stand-up comedian/Peter Gabriel '78-ish in San Diego, or Los Lobos/Kipper Kids/PiL at Olympic Auditorium.
Avatar 7:49pm Photocopy Cha Cha 2000:

@7:48 Dean: a stand-up comedian could have been one of Peter Gabriel's Genesis-era guises

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:50pm Julie:

whose show from 1971?
Avatar 7:51pm Daya:

Weirdest pairing show I ever saw: Kansas, with The Motors (with Bram Tchiakovsky) opening.
Avatar 7:52pm Daya:

Julie: Yes, in New Haven, when they opened for Grand Funk Railroad.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:52pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

& also that show - 'Decibel Death' (?). So on topic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:52pm Julie:

was it Hendrix who got booed opening for the monkees?
Avatar 7:52pm Franco Twinkie:

Dean, Yes giving Donavan a helping hand was very different from the mind set that threw PIL/Los Lobos/ Kipper Kids together in 1980 at The Olympic.
Avatar 7:53pm Daya:

Yes! He did open for The Monkees! ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:53pm Julie:

hi Franco Twinkie!
Avatar 7:54pm Daya:

I saw Sammy Hagar get booed off the stage, when he opened for Kiss in ‘77
Avatar 7:54pm Photocopy Cha Cha 2000:

@7:52 Julie: unsure about booing but a best of both worlds sort of bill, even though Hendrix quite likely was not so into it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:54pm Julie:

I think it before Hendris was big and the crowd was like what's this noise
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:54pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Yes after Hendrix Experience debuted in USA @ Monterey - booked with Monkees who were gigantic then remember. Monkees loved him. TV kids didn't...
Avatar 7:54pm Franco Twinkie:

Julie, Howdeedoo!
Avatar 7:54pm Daya:

Franco: Yes, Yes was helping him out on that tour, I believe they even mentioned it.
  7:55pm Dean:

Man, I wish I'd seen Yes with Bruford. Only time I saw him live was '76 Genesis Starlight Amphitheater.

I hear ya, Franco. I don't think Yes/Donovan is all that strange, but at the time it was surprising. Not too much later, after all, Steve Hillage did a great version of "Hurdy Gurdy Man."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:55pm chresti:

Always wear earplugs nowadays. The last live show we went to was maybe Extended Organ or Airway, I think. Whoever it was they set of car alarms.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:56pm chresti:

  7:56pm Dean:

That Olympic show was amazing, by the way. Lydon pulled some 12YO kid up on stage and let him sing. Kid's photo made the LAT the next day.
Avatar 7:56pm Photocopy Cha Cha 2000:

a pity monkees were considered talentless idiots among serious critics back in the 1960s. the serious critics were talentless...
Avatar 7:56pm Daya:

Dean: saw many Yes shows with Bruford, and several times when he was with King Crimson at Toad’s Place, and once with U.K.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:57pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Donovan & Yes makes perfect sense to me - similar & different enough.

How the mighty fall. I think you'll like this one Dean. I was walking down speedway in Venice with Stan Ridgway and he broadcast in his distinctive voice "this is where Johnny Rotten lives!" We look over and Mr. Rotten is sitting on his front porch looking very small. It was weirdly uncomfortable and funny at the same time.

Just found the review in the LAT of the PiL Olympic show. I was mistaken. There was no photo of the kid, just a mention in Hilburn's review.

Did you ever ask Stan about inviting my band to play at Hong Kong Cafe, Franco?

In the early '70's Green Manalishi was a favorite around our house when my sister and I were were teenagers. We even worked out a little satanic dance to go with it.

I had been unimpressed by this era of FM but people kept bringing up this song, and I'd never heard it till today.

@8:08 Julie: the same except it is 1968 Fleetwood Mac I don't care for (a few ones aside - Albatross comes to mind) - but Then Play On is already majestic.

hiya WR! I listened to Then Play On recently and it didn't move me but I really love that song

I guess in the seventies I was kind of hung up on Jackson Browne Graham Parker David Bromberg Leonard Cohen Loggins & Messina Jo Jo gunne Johnny Winter Joni Mitchell Cowboy The Allman Brothers Jesse Colin Young Wet Willie Bob Dylan and of course so many 60s groups that came before way too many to mention...Bruucce....etc...

Bare Trees, imo was the best of the Danny Kirwan era, but alas it was his last.

Joni Mitchell Cowboy? Is that like John Cougar Mellencamp?
Avatar 8:19pm Photocopy Cha Cha 2000:

@8:18 Daya: it is so lovely, Bare Trees. I wonder why people dislike the poem read by the old lady at the end of the album. I think it is a perfect ending.
  8:20pm CC:

Peter and Phil had some nice harmonies!!!
Avatar 8:20pm Photocopy Cha Cha 2000:

@8:18 Julie: Bare Trees and Future Days - recommended
Avatar 8:20pm Daya:

BT has a lot of Christine influence, I think, but overall has so much Danny. Then Bob Welch kinda came to the forefront.
  8:21pm Dean:

I saw Johnny Cougar open for...somebody?...at the Whisky when he was in his fifteen minute punk phase. Just dreadful.

Never realized that Genesis tune closes with a riff from "Twilight Alehouse." No Collins there, CC.
Avatar 8:21pm Franco Twinkie:

CC, I saw many of those people as well, but I side stepped much of prog to jump into punk straight away.
  8:22pm CC:

I'm sorry Julie I forgot to put commas between everybody's name Cowboy of course was Scott Boyer and Tommy Talton...:)

One word that you should know after Fleetwood Mac, "Tusk" (the album). You won't be disappointed (one of my favorite albums of all time).

  8:33pm Dean:

I only poo-poo'd Rumours because I had to sell that damn album all day every day, over and over and over again. Tusk did not help, and to this day I think it is inferior, bloated at 2 LPs. It took treacly sweet solo Lindsay and the perfect Christine to bring me into the fold.
Avatar 8:34pm Daya:

On Bare Trees, “Child of Mine” and “Danny’s Chant” are the stand outs for me.

My friend Dorian who is an acolyte of early Mac played me a boot of them playing at The Shrine in L.A. in '68. Whaaaa, what a band!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:35pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

A lot of derision of Gittar Blues Rawk. Peter Green Mac was just that in the late 1960s - but an exalted example. His Gittar - & Danny too - try the Live recordings. Green was also a wonderful Singer (not every Guitarist is) & Writer (same). They wrote Black Magic .Woman - not Santana. So - you gotta sit with that Gittar playing a minute yo get it...

I noticed my take on pop before I was aware of American culture (I grew up in Japan), and pop before I was born, makes it easy for me tp disassociate the music from the contemporous pop culture and enjoy it on its own merits. Anything from the mid-90s forward, I have a hard time liking most pop music w/ a few notable exceptions.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:39pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I for one am desperate to hear Rory ! Major gap. I diddle Gittar, you see.
  8:39pm Dean:

I resist Blues and Gospel only because I fear being pulled into their respective riptides. I could thrive musically on an all-Bach diet. Same goes for Blues and Gospel, I fear, so I avoid them, except when I don't.

@8:33 Dean: I don't think it is bloated, their collective madness translated into microgrooves (1s & 0s or whatever). Tusk is a train wreck of a (double) album but in the most positive meaning of that expression

& to me the Lady era Mac was the cultural opposition - forcefed Yacht Rawk & that was what Punk was for. I know perfectly well intellectually what merit it has - but it's a challenge otherwise. Courses for Horses as George Martin said...

yes most of his songs for her come from classical pieces

I keep waiting for somebody to play Funk 48 by the James gang but all I ever get is Funk 49???...

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:46pm Uncle Michael:

Same here, Gina. Not a wrong note on it.
Avatar 8:46pm Franco Twinkie:

CC, why don't you ask them to play Hoola Hoop by Georgia Gibbs? you and I are so damned old, we should be in bed, not trying to talk to all these youngsters about their music.
Avatar 8:47pm Photocopy Cha Cha 2000:

youngsters... ;)
Avatar 8:47pm northguineahills:

@Dean: Just like any other genre, Gospel and Blues aren't immune to bad music. So, tread accordingly.... (but there is some damn amazing stuff).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:48pm spodiodi:

the bad new days are making us weary. please don't stop with the stories, Franco
Avatar 8:48pm Daya:

Budgie! Saw him with Siouxsie AND playing drums for The Slits in ‘80
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:48pm Gina Bacon:

I agree, Uncle Michael. Solid through and through. The Bernie / Elton magic.

Avatar 8:49pm northguineahills:

@Julie: I like both kinds of music, country and western!
Avatar 8:49pm Photocopy Cha Cha 2000:

ending already :(
  8:49pm Dean:

Wrong Budgie, Daya! I'm talking the Welsh trio. (You're joking, perhaps?)

Yes, ngh, and Reggae, too. And Romantic, Classical, name your genre...the good, the bad, and the curious.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:49pm spodiodi:

i think i was maybe born too late
Avatar 8:50pm Daya:

Yeah, I don’t know another soul who has seen The Slits live, if you mean them ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:50pm spodiodi:

i'm so gullible
thanks, Julie!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:50pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Elton so convincing & real. Had hits sure but nobody I knew was playing this early stuff...
Avatar 8:50pm Daya:

Thanks Julie!! Hear you Thursday!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:51pm Gina Bacon:

Thanks, Julie!!
Avatar 8:52pm Photocopy Cha Cha 2000:

@8:49 Dean: I really should get to know'em more - as an 80s kid Budgie's a familiar name cuz of Metallica's Breadfan version.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:52pm Doug Schulkind:

Indeedy-do! Bob and Gina bring you BIG PLANET NOISE, coming up next on the Drummer Stream!

The party continues over here: wfmu.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:52pm spodiodi:

Daya, i mean them, and budgie! nice!
  8:53pm Dean:

My Elton album, which I still don't own, was the eponymous second, which I heard around the time of its release, c.'71, when I also heard Sticky Fingers and Tapestry. Must remedy this lapse.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:53pm spodiodi:

see you Thursday, Julie!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:53pm chresti:

Thanks Julie!

Bi Julie!!!...luv ya!!

arigato, Julie!
Avatar 8:53pm Daya:

Thanks! I have pics I took, and a great story about Ari Up. I got knocked down, and she got off the stage and pulled me to my feet mid-song ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:53pm Doug Schulkind:

True story: I played Madonna on the air one time, and FMU music director Brian Turner received a telephone death threat.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:54pm Julie:

yes Dean the one and the same! Thanks for listening everyone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:54pm spodiodi:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:54pm spodiodi:

lol Doug
Avatar 8:54pm northguineahills:

@Doug: If you're not getting death threats at WFMU, then you're not doing it right!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:54pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Probably like all the Budgies - Rawkers, Siouxsee drummer - & background vocalists for Julie!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:54pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hi ... lurking for a while, but wanted to compliment you on the nice show tonight. Take care!
Avatar 8:54pm Photocopy Cha Cha 2000:

@8:53 Daya: must have been a cool show for you!
  8:55pm Dean:

Yes, "everybody" should get to know Budgie. Metallica's tribute was worthy, for sure.

Wish I'd seen The Slits.

Dang, I have more Madonna in my collection than Elton John!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:55pm Julie:

thanks Ken!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:55pm Doug Schulkind:

No, if the music director is not getting death threats...
Avatar 8:55pm Daya:

Cha Cha: it was amazing! Still a lifetime highlight for me :)
Avatar 8:55pm Daya:

That and meeting Kate ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:56pm chresti:

The Slits were great.
Avatar 8:56pm Photocopy Cha Cha 2000:

I never saw The Slits either, not even the 2000s version.
Avatar 8:56pm Franco Twinkie:

Thanks Julie, 'twas ex-el-ent!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:56pm Julie:

haha this is not the first time I've played her. The worst reaction I got was Taylor Swift and I'll probably play her thursday so there ya go...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:56pm spodiodi:

really cool, Daya
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:56pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Haha Doug!
Avatar 8:56pm northguineahills:

*phones in death threat about Julie's selection (is that Michele today?)*. so Julie gets her complimentary death threat.
  8:56pm Dean:

By the way, I learned only today that Metallica's very first live show was at a venue where one of my bands played. A joint near Knott's Berry Farm in Buena Park/Anaheim (in Orange County). Given the choice of seeing the two bands, I'd have opted for Metallica.
  8:57pm Dean:

Taylor Swift is super. No shame, no guilt.
Avatar 8:57pm Daya:

“Complimentary Death Threat”
Awesome name for a band!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:57pm chresti:

I saw them in the 80s, Slits.
  8:58pm Dean:

Ha, that or Obligatory Death Threat.
Avatar 8:58pm northguineahills:

wouldn't know Taylor swift if her records fell on me.....
  8:58pm CC:

Dean... I love their song called So What!!!
