Options September 4, 2020: Combustible Edison
We go head on 90's as I try to play a hour worth of Combustible Edison. If this show was any less crappier, I'd play some Pizzicato Five and Swing Out Sister from this same decade.

Hey ho, Don-O! Yes, i remember Christmas. Pretty cool band. They would transmogrify into Combustible Edison.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:04pm Aitch:

Greetings crapsters.
Avatar 6:04pm Don-O:

Hey, Fab. I had to play something pre-CE to make it sound like I know what I'm doing.
Avatar 6:06pm Don-O:

Good Hello, Aitch!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:13pm Carmichael:

Heya Don-O. Hoping for some incredibly crappy music!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:13pm Aitch:

CE new to me, quite strange, just the way we like it.
  6:14pm solo mon:

Oh I’m so glad I got off the call in time for this!
Avatar 6:16pm Don-O:

Good hello to all. This episode may not be CRAPPY, but it a;; good.....unless I gave up on life and played the Howard The Duck OST.
Avatar 6:17pm Don-O:

....oh, BTW. SOMEbody released a 3-disc version of the Howard OST last year! Just sayin'....
Avatar 6:17pm Mr Fab:

A friend of mine saw Combustible Edison live. he said that at one point they were all performing on their instruments with one hand, whilst holding a cocktail in their other hand. Which is how I try to go thru life.
Avatar 6:18pm Don-O:

Solid, Fab!!
  6:22pm solo mon:

I can attest to that Fab, saw CE at Bimbos in San Francisco and yes they can play some songs while holding cocktails!
Avatar 6:23pm Mr Fab:

Yes! Probly my fave CE track here.
Avatar 6:24pm Mr Fab:

Cool, solo, can't imagine how I missed 'em live. They're all still alive and well, a reunion could happen.
  6:25pm solo mon:

Bimbos was the perfect venue for them, they have fish tanks with mermaids projected into them behind the bar. Magical.
Avatar 6:25pm Don-O:

I think there's a FB group demanding a CE reunion but there hasn't been a new posting over 10 years. Sadly, don't hold you breath.....sigh...
Avatar 6:27pm Mr Fab:

Sheena's own Ursula1000 is friends with CE member Brother Cleve. Maybe U1k can talk him into a reunion? Not that anyone can play live now, but hey, make a new record, eh?
Avatar 6:28pm Don-O:

I'd cross my fingers but I'd dropped my drink.
Avatar 6:32pm Don-O:

Hmmmmm. looks like I might have to ask John and Rebecca to replace this show again....I'm sure they are getting tired of me by now.
Avatar 6:35pm Don-O:

....well, I WAS sticking my nose in and now out.....
Avatar 6:36pm Mr Fab:

i was out of the room for a few. If it pooped out i didn't hear it. We're swingin now.
Avatar 6:53pm Don-O:

BTW: the last non-CE track (should it ever play) is for Rich.....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:54pm Rich in Washington:

Wow. I clearly don't know doodly squat about Combustible Edison. I always thought they were strictly lounge revivalists.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:55pm Rich in Washington:

This is really cool stuff!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:55pm Rich in Washington:

Is this distortion intentional? Hopefully so!
Avatar 6:55pm Don-O:

....yea, I liked them a lot as they didn't milk the camp factor to ear-bleed level.
  6:57pm Martinibomb:

Hi Don-O! Just catching the end o yer show today. Had to buy a pole saw.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:57pm Rich in Washington:

Never mind me! My iTunes slipped to something else for the last five minutes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:57pm Rich in Washington:

Hey folks! I'll be spinning live tunes for you on Cratedigger's Lung over here right after this show: wfmu.org...
Avatar 6:57pm Don-O:

Their last album adds a bit of electronic blips in it. Not bad a bad touch.
Avatar 6:58pm Mr Fab:

yah, "Hot & Bothered," my other fave CE tune.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:59pm Aitch:

Most informative Don-O, thanks
