Hey Sheila. Getting fully awake from nap. Thankfully caught your Massive Attack story. I can’t compete with that but I saw them on The Mezzanine tour. They literally made me sick with the low end frequencies and volume. Saw them just last year and could not believe they were even louder! In league with Slayer! Hopefully don’t have to wait another 20 years to see them again!
  3:45pm Jett:

Krull: Yeah, I'm with you on the pickle juice with garlic chunks. Even if there's a placebo bump, the thought of downing some briny garlic chunks makes my brain and stomach feel like they're regenerating. Feels like a home remedy that's got legs.

Scrap, I think that's how old witchy remedies come about! I'm on board

Sloan's most famous song must be Eve of destruction. The same backing that was used on the hit by Barry McGuire was also used on the cover of Jan & Dean, an alternate take by The Grassroots and on the French cover by Canadian singer Marc Bourret (I recently found that last single).

There's one Irish bar in Hell's Kitchen that I go (went?) to sometimes that has a "Hangover Cures of the World" poster in the bathroom, and I am pretty sure both pickle brine and sauerkraut juice are on it.

Hi, Sheila and all. How are things on Planet Boom today?
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Year-End Fundraiser 2020 Swag For Life Member 5:07pm Scrappy:

Since international travel isn't really a thing now (had to cancel a spring trip to Hungary), I've been buying booze from around the world that I don't usually get, just to ease the wanderlust (it's worked so far). Naturally, the Hangover Cures of the World intrigues me...and will help next time I make a grocery list.
Avatar 5:09pm northguineahills:

I ordered my food en espanol flawlessly, and I forgot gravy (veggie for my rice and beans), is, duh, salsa! I'm such a morona.
  5:09pm Jett:

"Blue Light Yokohama" is an excellent piece of music, something very eerie about it.
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Year-End Fundraiser 2020 Swag For Life Member 5:09pm Krull Sagan:

Man, what an intro to this set! I cannot wait
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Year-End Fundraiser 2020 Swag For Life Member 5:10pm Krull Sagan:

Any particularly unusual acquisitions, Scrappy?
  5:10pm Miss G:

Scrappy, did you ever get any Swiss absinthe? (sorry to be so corny, but it has to do with a loved one. I always wanted it, and so I thought maybe it would be a nice thing) Sorry about your Hungarian trip, good luck for shortly thereafter. . .

I've been talking to my former Japanese neighbors (when I was kid, in Japan). Let's just say my hiragana now sucks, but, I put forward ok roman-ji.... (they don't speak much English)>
Avatar 5:12pm βrian:

I'm considering asking for a leave of absinthe.

  5:14pm Miss G:

I can hardly stand it, to go from Ms Toron to Tsutsumi Kyohei, so much info! My brain is exploding! Thank you Sheila B!
Avatar 5:17pm northguineahills:

I spent many nights in Yokohama, whatever a prepubescent geijin does w/ his friends at night. (I was just happy the school girls petted my blonde hair, saying, "kawaii", and giggle [I was afraid to talk to girls at the time])
  5:20pm Miss G:

NGH, thank you for sharing your reminiscences! I was in Japan briefly in 1990, a lifelong dream, and in one mountain resort in the bathing room, my platinum blonde hair and tattoo on my shoulder caused quite a stir .. .plus, my too formal Japanese language. (which they taught me at Japan Society NYC)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:20pm Rob Kopp:

I'm sorry, but I have to go. Will listen to the last 40 minutes tomorrow, I promise. Have a nice week everyone and until next Wednesday?
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Year-End Fundraiser 2020 Swag For Life Member 5:21pm Scrappy:

Hmm, not sure how unusual they've been, though Mrs. Scrappy usually passes on them.

It really started with Unicum Zwack (the factory was on the list for Budapest), and I've been working my way through different kinds of Slivovitz from different countries like Croatia and Serbia. Got raki last time I was out which finally broke my gag response to anise-flavoured liquor. Not sure what to get next.

Miss G: Nah, never had Swiss absinthe, but now that you mention it, I'm intrigued and will be on the lookout.

Avatar 5:24pm northguineahills:

@Miss G: i was there from 1986-1989 (I was 10-13 years old, and I was alowed to go out for as long as I wanted (there was no crime), so as long as I got home before the trains stopped running. Having restrictions once I returned back to the States, having restrictions and a curfew, was a big shock).
  5:24pm Miss G:

Scrappy, it is _exactly_ Unicum Zwack which was our special thing! That is weird! I will look for that one Swiss Bleue that I want to tell you.
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Year-End Fundraiser 2020 Swag For Life Member 5:25pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I am hearing you now, Sheila.
  5:26pm Mike Sin:

I think I first heard this track on one of the fine Ace comps that you compiled!

NGH, that is wild! Very different circumstances, indeed! Scrappy, this is the one I want. Of course, first I will pledge to WFMU *blush* https://www.astorwines.com/SearchResultsSingle.aspx?p=2&search=21321&searchtype=Contains

Miss G, Zwack is fantastic! And legit medicinal, too. It's a go-to stomachache cure for me.

Ah, it doesn't look like we get La Clandestine here in Ontario. Well, at least I've got absinthe on my mind now. Helps me with where to put my drinking dollar.

@djsheilab What a great set today! Thanks, Sheila. It's probably common knowledge around here but how long did you live in Japan and did you learn Japanese before/during/after?

NGH, yes, I've lost all my German I knew in the aughts, Still, isn't it nice to watch Japanese films and catch a word here and there? You really feel like you know what they're saying, because of the rhythms. . .
