Listener comments!

  Thu. 12/11/08 12:04pm GP:

Scott, This is a wonderful song.
  Thu. 12/11/08 12:06pm Andy:

Good Afternoon from St. Margaret's Bay in Nova Scotia! I think that the artist's name is Bahar- not the track's name. He sounds like the Turkish James Blood Ulmer.
  Thu. 12/11/08 12:10pm PMD:

Hi Scott! Where's the beer?
  Thu. 12/11/08 12:12pm dc pat:

yes, bring back the beer
  Thu. 12/11/08 12:12pm postmanpaul:

B E E F H E A R T ! ! !
  Thu. 12/11/08 12:14pm PMD:

Note that I said beer and not beef. Though I am hungry and will go eat lunch now.
  Thu. 12/11/08 12:14pm dc pat:

D E A TH S E N T E N C E : P A N D A !
  Thu. 12/11/08 12:16pm Cecile:

I know how to crochet a panda.
  Thu. 12/11/08 12:18pm dc pat:

I wish I had a program that would insert random pops and crackles into all my mp3's.
  Thu. 12/11/08 12:19pm Jim Fowler:

I know how to Heimlich a gibbon.
  Thu. 12/11/08 12:19pm kent goldings:

the band is called hayvanlar alemi, according to their myspace page http://www.myspace.com/hayvanlaralemi
  Thu. 12/11/08 12:23pm Cecile:

they are pretty great, kent.
I heard them last week and was blown away. I have to send away for that demo
  Thu. 12/11/08 12:28pm kent goldings:

cecile, i first heard them when monica played them a couple weeks back - fantastic stuff for sure.
  Thu. 12/11/08 12:29pm JEff m:

nice dreambaby dream cover. Been hearing peeps talk about it. nice to finally hear it. Have to say the song is very Brucish.
  Thu. 12/11/08 12:29pm Ike:

I have to agree that the Hayvanlar Alemi track was supreme.
  Thu. 12/11/08 12:30pm Cecile:

I will be the dissenting opinion here in the form of a lolcat:
"Suicide: Ur doing it rong"
  Thu. 12/11/08 12:31pm postmanpaul:

Talking of building dust infiltrating ones CD/DVD portal on ones personal computer and buggering 'bout with hairy off-the-radar audio receptoroids...
I think I have I have that pop'ncrakle program installed.
  Thu. 12/11/08 12:34pm cosmic:

whats up people, scott

im listening. not pleased to have missed beefheart!
  Thu. 12/11/08 12:35pm born in the you-ess-a:

i hope suicide gets some good $$$ from this guy doing their stuff
  Thu. 12/11/08 12:37pm maverick:

wow, john mccain's lost album! i never knew...
  Thu. 12/11/08 12:37pm postmanpaul:

Hi cosmic - How's tricks there?
I'm pleased to hear that your headphones have finally caught up with you!
  Thu. 12/11/08 12:38pm Jeff M:

Well, in some ways i agree with you Cecile. It's certainly nothing like from Ghostriders and I can think of many better cover versions of Suicide songs, but it's still pretty decent and sort of channels Suicide in a more romantic and nostalgic way that fits in with the Bruce cosmology. Don't want to get too long here.
  Thu. 12/11/08 12:39pm fishmonkeystew:

Hey, I recognize those sampled bits! Alone in the wilderness with Dick Proenneke.
  Thu. 12/11/08 12:52pm postmanpaul:

This is reminding me of root canal treatment.
  Thu. 12/11/08 12:54pm annie:

reading playlist, watching comments, listening to random youtube selections from vaste fmu hurried notes.
  Thu. 12/11/08 1:02pm Sean Daily:

Not even close to first comment! Woo hoo!
  Thu. 12/11/08 1:08pm d:

this song sounds quite aksak maboul doesnt it?
  Thu. 12/11/08 1:13pm Nat:

dagmar kraus' voice sounded different than it did on the album I have. I fear change!

  Thu. 12/11/08 1:15pm Scott:

Yo Nat! And hi everyone. Yeah, that Dagmar - so flexible.
  Thu. 12/11/08 1:23pm Cecile:

can you hook us up with some Silver Apples, Scott?
  Thu. 12/11/08 1:35pm begger:

please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please play pavement
  Thu. 12/11/08 1:40pm chuck7:

Shut up. Love the music.
  Thu. 12/11/08 1:45pm ?:

yeah, pavement.........2nd that, can we have some
  Thu. 12/11/08 1:49pm Cecile:

  Thu. 12/11/08 1:50pm Scott:

yeah, I think so - I actually pulled some Pavement today.
  Thu. 12/11/08 2:00pm jeff m:

this is a really cool song man ( plastic palace .. )
  Thu. 12/11/08 2:09pm dc pat:

I just had to do a quick search on Rory Storm to see if he was still around...different one I guess.
  Thu. 12/11/08 2:10pm Scott:

Rory Storm? You mean the one that put his head in the oven? No, that one's long gone. This is a diff one, from NZ.
  Thu. 12/11/08 2:11pm dc pat:

the one Ringo played drums for. Upon being asked why he didn't attend his funeral, Ringo said: "I wasn't there when he [Storm] was born either."
  Thu. 12/11/08 2:13pm dc pat:

actually wkipedia says something about sleeping pills or chest infection..
  Thu. 12/11/08 2:15pm Scott:

you mean that story about him & his mum with the suicide pact in the kitchen is all apocryphal?! Well cancel my damn subscription to the death rock tribune
  Thu. 12/11/08 2:16pm Cecile:

The George Jones sings Hank gets short shrift in some circles. I think it's pretty great.
  Thu. 12/11/08 2:17pm Cecile:

record, I meant to put in there.
  Thu. 12/11/08 2:20pm Scott:

That's why I don't live in circles. Plus being square.
  Thu. 12/11/08 2:21pm Ringo:

Peace, love, I'm a putz. Peace.
  Thu. 12/11/08 2:24pm Cecile:

I think of you as more trapezoidal, Scott.
  Thu. 12/11/08 2:24pm begger:

  Thu. 12/11/08 2:26pm dc pat:

it's funny how everyone has moved on from Deerhoof to Deerhunter
  Thu. 12/11/08 2:28pm Cecile:

I wish they sounded more like the movie.
  Thu. 12/11/08 2:28pm Scott:

Yo dc pat, sometimes it's just all about the segue.
  Thu. 12/11/08 2:28pm yay:

remember deerfucker? 80's hardcore band outta dc.
  Thu. 12/11/08 2:29pm deerfucker:

just kidding
  Thu. 12/11/08 2:31pm Ike:

That's one of the most overrated, overblown, clumsy, heavy-handed movies ever made. The band is better. Although I prefer their previous album. I like noise. "Microcastle" is too full o' hippie-folk.
  Thu. 12/11/08 2:31pm detroitdave:

deerfucker huh....................are you really SD?
  Thu. 12/11/08 2:33pm Cecile:

No, sorry, misunderstanding - they just didn't think George did such a great job on that record. They like how George sings Hank, just not how that record turned out. I like the record.
  Thu. 12/11/08 2:33pm dc pat:

that's what I was thinkin'
  Thu. 12/11/08 2:34pm GP:

CURSE you Wikipedia! another childhood belief ripped to shreds.
  Thu. 12/11/08 2:34pm Cecile:

Ike, I think I'm mostly thinking about Christopher Walken's unhinged performance in the movie.
  Thu. 12/11/08 2:36pm Sean Daily:

Four minutes to beeeeeeeer... Or at least four minutes to what should be beeeeeeeer...
  Thu. 12/11/08 2:37pm detroitdave:

SD you get to drink beer at 2:40?
  Thu. 12/11/08 2:38pm Jeff M:

Who originally wrote Witchita Lineman? All i have is covers.
  Thu. 12/11/08 2:38pm Cecile:

Jimmy Webb
  Thu. 12/11/08 2:39pm ?:

ahh thanks sir. Written down.
  Thu. 12/11/08 2:40pm jeff m:

Whoops no name
  Thu. 12/11/08 2:40pm Cecile:

I'm not a sir, but you are very welcome!
  Thu. 12/11/08 2:41pm dc pat:

I was gonna say, you mean ma'am!
  Thu. 12/11/08 2:43pm SJ:

This Wicked Witch is great.
  Thu. 12/11/08 2:44pm detroitdave:

Yeah....more like this!!
  Thu. 12/11/08 2:44pm bzul:

I once heard Jimmy Webb confess his unease about a songwriting "cheat" in Wichita Lineman - an imperfect rhyme: "time" with "line".
Goodgoshamighty, Jimmy, it's fine.
  Thu. 12/11/08 2:46pm dc pat:

  Thu. 12/11/08 2:51pm Jeff M:

Ahh apologies Cecile. i rarely post so i don't know who every one is
  Thu. 12/11/08 2:54pm Cecile:

that's ok.

Oh, great, my favorite 50s teen snuff record!
