  12:55pm McGroovey:

I want the new bats. I need to listen to more Resonars. Gateway Drugs: aren't some of them kids of someone from the eighties? I think I saw them opening for... someone... at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Swervedriver maybe? I may have that totally wrong.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:55pm mariano:

Hey HoboJack, Handy, spodi!

clarke: Yeah, rents were so incredibly cheap here in the 90s. Then again, they were so much cheaper everywhere. When in lived in SF in the 90s, my then-GF had a studio on Haight a block or two from the park, and she was paying $575. Which at the time I thought was obscene.

Mariano, we bought a house in Bywater '92. It was el-cheapo but surrounded by Sec 8 scatter sights and the crime was far worse
  1:02pm McGroovey:

Yeah, I had it pretty much right. Three of the Gateway Drugs are kids of one of the Knack. And yes, it was Swervedriver they opened for. I think they were better than Swervedriver (who are one of my faves from the nineties) at least that night. Swervedriver had a sub bass player, playing a really wooly-sounding Gibson bass. Sounded like he was playing through a box of pillows.
  1:02pm clarke:

Monsieur Sin!! sneakin' in.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:02pm efd:

one of these years I'm going to wise up and just do two year-end best-of shows like this, instead of trying to rank albums and singles and comps and reissues and feeling bad about everything that gets left out.

Not this year, though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:03pm Handy Haversack:

A ton of the good things in our life have been possible only because we got into a rent-stabilized place in the late nineties and then another in 2004 before the rents around here went completely insane.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:05pm mariano:

Oh sorry, clarke, missed your Middendorf's comment. Glad to hear it's still good if not better -- haven't been there in years.

Hubig: One of my friends lived in the Marigny and Bywater in the 90s, was such a different area then, you're right. Unfortunately, in the 90s, Louisiana was still the place I was trying to escape from. So short-sighted. Then again, I got to live in some other cool places before they were totally Disneyfied.

This is a great cover. Of course, the song is about a child witnessing a murder and being so traumatized by it he's struck dumb and unresponsive to visual and audio stimuli (though not physically deaf and blind) and people want it to be an optiimistic song about next year so...

Entwistle described Ken Russell as an insane Father Christmas. @ least the film is weird, has some surrealism - & a few good performances. & truly odd enuff can keep it away from the actual '69 Album in my head...

unfortunately the main problem with the film is that the songs were re-cut!! the performances are all awful. nothing has the impact of the original vocals.

  1:54pm clarke:

and when i say "clunkers" it is more production choices than song-writing

@clarke - haven't listened to mccartney III yet but plan to
  2:00pm clarke:

i have mixed feelings for sure - but, have decided to like it, ha ha.
  2:01pm clarke:

every song is a minute too long.
Avatar 2:02pm Joe B:

I guess that makes up for mccartney 1 where every song was a minute too short!
Avatar 2:02pm Joe B:

@Jack - sounds like a plan

dont you boys know any nice songs?
  2:03pm clarke:

maybe - but shorter is better!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:03pm medson:

Hey Joe B and everyone. Rockin show, late chiming in
  2:04pm Warm custard:

@clarke I heard one of the Mccartney songs and agree it was about a minute too long- That was the first minute LOL. Seriously, any artist that continues working all their life into old age is okee dokee with me. Artists seem to have lousy work when just starting and lousy stuff after the creativity has expired.

I have a couple things by the Fox Sisters. They've put out a lot of stuff (including side things). I've lost touch with the Rochester music scene since I moved out of the in 2003. I used to go see all the local bands. Most were as good as any national touring band. See: The Quitters, The Priests, The Bloody Hollies (maybe they were from Buffalo), The Riviera Playboys, The Hi-Risers (and all Greg Townson's other bands),
..., and those are the roots/garage ones. There also noisey artsy bands.

DjLorraine, good to see you on the comments board. Lydia Loveless is from Columbus.
  2:21pm McGroovey:

The Facebook page for the Great Notch Inn says it's in Little Falls, but Google Maps says it's in Woodland Park. I'm gonna guess located in one of them, and has a USPS mailing address from the other.

Hi, Jack. Standing in line at the cable TV store to exchange my cable box that died the other night when the power glitched. They should have an app for Android TVs so a person can get the channels without a stupid cable box.

McGroovey, it's all about the zip code.
  2:24pm clarke:

ahhhh, THAT'S what its all about!! and i was thinking it was the hokey-pokey all this time!
  2:25pm ww:

Glad to help straighten you out, Clarke!
  2:25pm ww:

Although the hokey-pokey is right up there...
  2:25pm clarke:

well - screw this hokey-pokey stuff
  2:26pm McGroovey:


The boundary between Little Falls and Woodland Park goes down the middle of Rt 46 there. The Great Notch Inn is on the Woodland Park side of the road. But most of the area called Great Notch is in Little Falls (there's no inutilement Great Notch municipality). So it's settled then.
  2:26pm clarke:

i have been trying to put my left foot IN fer forever!!
  2:27pm clarke:

are those the same falls that Sam Patch dove off of??

All that Hokey Pokey subversive singing about 'putting it in and out' is alone responsible for all of America's wasted youth spent in the skating rinks and meth labs.

Hi Joe!!
  2:33pm McGroovey:

There was a great Rochester hard-rockabilly band around 2000-2003... What was it called? They were kinda like the Stray Cats with bigger amps.... with healthy doses of Black Flag and The Cramps. I wish I could remember their name. They did your a bit. I saw them opening for Hot Hot Heat (who were almost local, since Toronto isn't far away).

The Flashcubes moved to Boston briefly, because one of the Flashcubes had moved there (the one who also leads former Syracuse band, now Boston band 1.4.5). My cousin moved there with them all, because he did sound and management for stove of them. The of the Flashcubes moved back to Syracuse. the 1.4.5 guy stayed in Boston. the drummer moved to NYC and it's still active around here.
