Artist Track Album Label Comments Special
 
Set 1: a loooong set of psych, starting quiet and ending kinda fuzzed. (Listen to this set: )
Brian Eno  Lizard Point (track 1) (Listen: )   Options Ambient 4: On Land  Virgin  Resonant, quiet & kind of druggy, romantic & dreamy.   
bethany curve  Jettison (track 2) (Listen: )   Options Flaxen  Kitchen Whore  Slow+ tempo, lush, builds a bit.  ***  
zelienople  Corner Lot (track 6) (Listen: )   Options Sleeper Coach  Loose Thread  Louder but dirge-like, instrumental, dark, but a bit floaty as well.  ***  
Friends Of Dean Martinez  White Lake (track 2) (Listen: )   Options A Place In The Sun  Knitting Factory  Easy- tempo, you could call it active grindcore or slowish psych, quieter last :40.   
Bardo Pond  Quiet Tristin (track 4) (Listen: )   Options Cypher Documents 1  Three Lobed  Quietish and soft.   
Spectrum  Undo The Taboo (track 11) (Listen: )   Options Live Chronicles Volume 2 (Tokyo Edition)  Space Age Recordings  Slow, druggy & dreamy, strong vocals in second half.   
F/i  Zombie In The Slave Trade (track 5) (Listen: )   Options Blue Star / Merge Parlour  Lexicon Devil  Druggy and dark, slow, tabla-like sfx under -> easy+ tempo, heavy psych rock.  ***  
Wire  Indirect Inquiries (track 12) (Listen: )   Options 154  Restless Retro  Slow+ tempo, could go to Brian Eno's Another Green World. But this time I didn't.   
Midnight Snake  acid wash (track 9) (Listen: )   Options Electric Venom  Midnight Snake  We emerge from the darkness of this set: reverbed guitar -> fuller sound and the rest of the band comes in, almost elegiacal and pretty (not like anything else they do!), but still rough and fuzzed.   
 
 
Mic break between Sets 1 & 2. Background music for it: (Listen to this set: )
Les Chakachas  Love is like a Violin (track 4)   Options Arriba!  RCA International  Phat, sentimental sound. Feels like it's the slow song at the record hop.   
 
 
Set 2: Bob & Ray: the absurdist old radio show portion of the evening, part 1. (Listen to this set: )
Bob & Ray  (no title) (Listen: )   Options From August 10, 1959, on some of CBS radio network: 1st show of 10 that day.  (no label)  Here's a quote from John Dunning's On The Air: The Encyclopedia Of Old Time Radio:

"But at their best, in their 1959 - 60 daily series for CBS, they were as funny and fresh, as clever and witty, as anyone who ever used the medium....Using no script...."

Bob & Ray  (no title) (Listen: )   Options From August 10, 1959, on some of CBS radio network: 2nd show of 10 that day.  (no label)    ***  
 
 
Mic break between Sets 2 & 3. Background music for it: (Listen to this set: )
Les Chakachas  Love is like a Violin (track 4)   Options Arriba!  RCA International  Phat, sentimental sound. Feels like it's the slow song at the record hop.   
 
 
Set 3: funky stuff. (Listen to this set: )
Bigga Bush vs. Kocani Orkestar  L'Orient Est Roots (track 9: ended at -0:09) (Listen: )   Options Electric Gypsyland  Six Degrees  Smooth and dub-like. Idea behind the CD: get some of "today's most interesting electronic music producers" to reinterpret tracks from top gypsy brass bands. Most either don't really work well or are just good. This DJ knows how to compliment the music - not get in the way.   
Orlando Julius & His Afro Sounders  Alo Mi Alo (track 6) (Listen: )   Options Orlando's Afro Ideas 1969 - 1972  Eko Sound / Soundway  Perkier and snappier than many on this CD, easy+ tempo.   
Don Cherry  I Walk (track 8) (Listen: )   Options Disco Not Disco  Strut  Afro-pop influence, easy.   
The Black On White Affair  A Buch Of Changes (track 24) (Listen: )   Options The Rustler Presents: Because You're Funky  Lo  Hard edged.   
Chris Joss  Wrong Alley Street (Part 3) (track 7) (Listen: )   Options You've Been Spiked  Cristal Records  Heavy bass, hard driving, wakka-wakka guitar.   
Dynasonics  You Got It (track 19) (Listen: )   Options The Rustler Presents: Because You're Funky  Lo     
Curly Davis & The Uniques  Black Cobra Part 2 (track 14) (Listen: )   Options Chains And Black Exhaust  Memphix  Cheapo police siren sfx -> cooking, fairly high speed soul-funk, instrumental.   
 
 
Mic break between Sets 3 & 4. Background music for it: (Listen to this set: )
Les Chakachas  Love is like a Violin (track 4)   Options Arriba!  RCA International  Phat, sentimental sound. Feels like it's the slow song at the record hop.   
 
 
Set 4: Bob & Ray: the absurdist old radio show portion of the evening, part 2. (Listen to this set: )
Bob & Ray  (no title) (Listen: )   Options From August 10, 1959, on some of CBS radio network: 3rd show of 10 that day.  (no label)  This episode features the 1 minute game show ad-lib on the word "enfoeffment". Fine absurdism, indeed.  ***  
Bob & Ray  (no title) (Listen: )   Options From August 10, 1959, on some of CBS radio network: 4th show of 10 that day.  (no label)    ***  
 
 
Mic break between Sets 4 & 5. Background music for it: (Listen to this set: )
Les Chakachas  Love is like a Violin (track 4)   Options Arriba!  RCA International  Phat, sentimental sound. Feels like it's the slow song at the record hop.   
 
 
Set 5: dark & solid electronica - mostly. (Listen to this set: )
Plastikman  Headcase (track 6) (Listen: )   Options Closer  Novamute  Sci-fi ambient sfx, catchy & quirky, low key, slow + tempo, instrumental, robotic feel at times.   
Troum  Saiwala (track 3: ended at -0:48) (Listen: )   Options Tjukurrpa Part 3  Drone  Drumming / throbbing, dreamy / druggy, slow music gradually comes in over, dark.   
Ektroverde  First Wooden Mould (track 1) (Listen: )   Options Music From The Film Futuro: A New Stance For Tomorrow  Ektro  Dark, helicopter sfx and PA system-treated voice, other dark reverberances.   
Grassy Knoll  My Little Back Book (track 3) (Listen: )   Options Short Stories  sixty one sixty eight  Quiet first :45 or so, the fine Chris Grady plays the soft trumpet -> easy+ tempo, rapid treated vocals under.   
 
 
End of show mic break. Background music for it: (Listen to this set: )
Les Chakachas  Love is like a Violin (track 4)   Options Arriba!  RCA International  Phat, sentimental sound. Feels like it's the slow song at the record hop.
