I never miscue a record. I am punctual, well-prepared, and dislike clutter. Outgoing and helpful, I'm always appropriately dressed. I do not behave erratically and have excellent penmanship. My CD's never skip, and I am in good health. I like all the notes, in any order.

Listener comments!

  Fri. 1/15/10 12:06pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hi....how's it going today?
  Fri. 1/15/10 12:06pm Cecile:

Hiya. Well, missed the rest of Doug's show, but had a great time gossiping...
  Fri. 1/15/10 12:07pm Cecile:

Bryce, how do you feel about weird 80s/90s deep Chicago house? I'd love to hear a set or show of it. I've been discovering all these strange, dark wonderful records on YouTube and the torrents.
  Fri. 1/15/10 12:09pm drunk right now:

Cecile- suggest some of your chicago faves so I can check them out.
  Fri. 1/15/10 12:13pm annie:

just read about the sting operation against scott ritter
  Fri. 1/15/10 12:15pm still b/p:

No...missed Taraf de Haidouks! That's the 2nd unluckiest occurrence of 2010 so far. The first was on the second day of the year when someone threw a few punches at my head.
  Fri. 1/15/10 12:18pm Cecile:

So many now:
I like Ten City "Suspicion"
Anything on the 20th Anniversary Trax box
Just about anything by Byron Stingily
Adonis, No Way Out
Marshall Jefferson - Mushrooms
I have a whole bunch of new names I haven't memorized yet...
  Fri. 1/15/10 12:18pm seang:

turkish bluegrass? i'm diggin this!
  Fri. 1/15/10 12:20pm north guinea hills:

I want that 20th Anniversary Trax Recs box, Cecile!
  Fri. 1/15/10 12:21pm Cecile:

Just buy it. It's not that expensive. I got mine used from Austria on Amazon. It shipped faster than some US stuff!
  Fri. 1/15/10 12:24pm still b/p:

This is a set of appetizers for Golden Festival? Wish I could go and feast. Will listen tomorrow from home.
  Fri. 1/15/10 12:27pm digthat:

great palylist. ant chances of playing some yiddish traditional?
  Fri. 1/15/10 12:28pm drunk right now:

Nice- thanks!

The more house that I hear, the more I like it.
  Fri. 1/15/10 12:29pm bryce:

hey, kenceciledrnanniestillbpseanngh

cecile, i do like some of that stuff! but not too knowledgeable about it.... to the torrentsssss

b/p, yeah, golden festival's coming right up, isn't it? that is one of the funnest things of the year.

could be, digthat! durntknow....
  Fri. 1/15/10 12:30pm digthat:

ok, let me rewrite that comment. "great playlist. any"
  Fri. 1/15/10 12:30pm bryce:


holy crap, golden festival's TONIGHT & TOMORROW

jesus....thanks for slapping me up
  Fri. 1/15/10 12:31pm Carmichael:

Hiya Bryce. I accidentally saw Taraf de Haidouks (with Bireli Legrene opening) a few years back. What a magnificent, swarthy event!
  Fri. 1/15/10 12:31pm C:

do they serve alcohol at the festival?
  Fri. 1/15/10 12:32pm Cecile:

I am kind of stumbling my way through it.
I was a Ten City and Byron Stingily fan for years, but never really pursued other house stuff until I started listening to tons of house on Pandora about six years ago. I'm slowly putzing around, getting my head around it.

I can send you some links to some stuff I've downloaded when I get home.
  Fri. 1/15/10 12:33pm digthat:

yeah. unfortunately i won't be able to make it to the golden light festival. shame on me.
  Fri. 1/15/10 12:33pm Cecile:

drunk right now, I find I either like it uplifting and gospelly, or dark, underproduced and really tribal.
  Fri. 1/15/10 12:34pm drunk right now:

I used to think of house and techno as the bad 4/4 WKTU music that the kids that beat me up in high school listened to.....it's been nice to slowly to discover the good wierd stuff
  Fri. 1/15/10 12:35pm bryce:

do they ever, C! in fact, with admission to the festival, all food and beer are free the entire night. and they don't run out. no shit.
  Fri. 1/15/10 12:36pm Cecile:

I'm loving it. That's a huge reason I need the harddrive - need to get about 25 years of good house and techno on there. Not to mention all the jazz Doug posts, and...
  Fri. 1/15/10 12:36pm bryce:

unless it's changed
  Fri. 1/15/10 12:37pm Cecile:

That is a PARTY. They're doing it up right, Balkan style.
  Fri. 1/15/10 12:38pm C:

alarmingly fun music to stuff envelopes to
  Fri. 1/15/10 12:38pm C:

thanks for the info, bryce. i will be there.
  Fri. 1/15/10 12:43pm bryce:

  Fri. 1/15/10 12:47pm Carmichael:

Bryce, if you could slip in some Roma and/or Gypsy jazz guitar in the next few hours, I will do a handstand.
  Fri. 1/15/10 12:47pm seang:

anyone see that turkish movie head-on; full of life!
  Fri. 1/15/10 12:54pm perrin:

how about some haitian music :-(
  Fri. 1/15/10 12:57pm drunk right now:

this Talip Ozkan SLAYS!
  Fri. 1/15/10 1:03pm Carmichael:

Haven't seen Head On yet, but I did see another one on Sundance about a month ago that I enjoyed. A restaurant owner is self-absorbed, uncaring to his wife and family, involved with other women, etc .... When he finally tries to right all his wrongs, it gets even worse and everyone eventually dies. My kind of movie.
  Fri. 1/15/10 1:09pm C++:

typical american, can't bother to learn at least 3 other languages to help us out
  Fri. 1/15/10 1:10pm Carmichael:

Serbian Surf?? Serf??
  Fri. 1/15/10 1:10pm bryce:

altruism prevents me from mortifying everyone with my ear-boggling polyglot preeminence
  Fri. 1/15/10 1:15pm Carmichael:

I bet you can still get a decent pair of go-go boots in Istanbul.
  Fri. 1/15/10 1:18pm Marshall Stacks:

Turkey, Land of 1000 Dances. Give or take.
  Fri. 1/15/10 1:24pm jk:

That Temiz was more than okay
  Fri. 1/15/10 1:30pm Hugo:

Temiz - made some very fine records with Mongesi Feza and Johnny Dyani.
  Fri. 1/15/10 1:33pm John Cale:

The bugger in the short sleeve...
  Fri. 1/15/10 1:37pm Cecile:

yes! 13th Flr Elevators!

this would totally flow into RIP by The Left. They borrow heavily from this riff and the song's great too.
  Fri. 1/15/10 1:38pm Cecile:

the Left do say "shit "a couple of times, just warning you, if you decide to play it and don't know the song.
  Fri. 1/15/10 1:39pm Alex:

13th flr elevators Yes. Love the sound that goes "bililililip"
  Fri. 1/15/10 1:40pm Cecile:

that's the electrified jug, Alex.
  Fri. 1/15/10 1:40pm dc pat:

note to self: finally make electric jug...
  Fri. 1/15/10 1:45pm Carmichael:

I read a long interview with Tommy Hall (the jug player), and he talks about how he electrified and played it. It may have been Irwin's book, or one of Richie Unterberger's outsider music books. I'll find it this weekend.
  Fri. 1/15/10 1:46pm Alex:

How do I build one? When I google it, I just get coffee pots.
  Fri. 1/15/10 1:47pm Sandy in Houston:

hooray for Texas psychedelic music.
electric jug - yes - someone please do tell how to make it.
  Fri. 1/15/10 1:53pm coelacanth:

a stethascope, wired to an amplifier..?
  Fri. 1/15/10 1:53pm dc pat:

well I think a basic version would be micing it and putting the signal through a tremolo box or amp. Like a Fender tremolo effect.
  Fri. 1/15/10 1:55pm dc pat:

you gotta get an authentic jug though. My mom has a couple from KY sitting around her house...
  Fri. 1/15/10 1:56pm coelacanth:

i wouldn't cut the glass- for a pick-up....too breathy sounding, probably.
  Fri. 1/15/10 1:57pm coelacanth:

(and really tricky,i'd bet.)
  Fri. 1/15/10 1:57pm Marshall Stacks:

From http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cYh5oMDlWwQ, for instance, it looks simple: jug + mouth + mic + amp = cool sounds.
  Fri. 1/15/10 1:58pm coelacanth:

Life is good.
  Fri. 1/15/10 1:58pm Carmichael:

IIRC, he used a contact pickup drilled through the bottom. I'll find the article this evening.
  Fri. 1/15/10 2:00pm Cecile:

you'd need a special bit for ceramic, wouldn't you?

There's this band, Skoal Kodiak, in Minnapolis whose singer vocalizes through a bleach bottle with a contact mic.
  Fri. 1/15/10 2:01pm coelacanth:

(life is complicated.)
  Fri. 1/15/10 2:02pm dc pat:

Stacks: that's my recipe too
  Fri. 1/15/10 2:03pm Cecile:

yeah, coel, but you can always use the bit to make lamps out of teacups or clocks out of plates
  Fri. 1/15/10 2:04pm momosuke araki jr.:

cecile, if you want to get into chicago house, take a gander at this essay by tim reynolds over at djhistory, which in general is a putry great resource (though it is more on a disco tip):

there's a pretty strong weirdo house thing going on in nyc right now.
here are some new record samples:
  Fri. 1/15/10 2:04pm coelacanth:

i sang into a beerball -lamp,which i made ,once,w a mic taped to it...That was bizarre sounding.
  Fri. 1/15/10 2:04pm stefica:

Golden Festival is the event of the year! Inside word is to get your tickets in advance; for crowd control they are letting in fewer people than last year.

And YES! Yummy snacks and beer along with dozens of great bands.
  Fri. 1/15/10 2:06pm Cecile:

momosuke, thank you so much!
And I'm always looking for new weirdo house, so thanks agai!n!!
  Fri. 1/15/10 2:07pm stefica:

And Post Golden Festival Brass Band Stomp Down – Sunday Jan 17th.
Veveritse Brass Band, What Cheer?
Brigade from Providence, and Black Bear Combo from Chicago.

9ish. Don Pedro Bar, 90 Manhattan Avenue, btw Boerum & McKibben
  Fri. 1/15/10 2:07pm bryce:

SAGE ADVICE. they sell out every year, and without a pre-bought ticket, you will stand in line — OUTSIDE — till your limbs fall off.
  Fri. 1/15/10 2:09pm coelacanth:

(do they still make "beerballs"? they made good lamps..and effects-units...'had a blue bulb in mine...me-elllo-o)
  Fri. 1/15/10 2:12pm Cecile:

that was a stupendous article, momosuke. I have to really dig into this during this long weekend off from work.
  Fri. 1/15/10 2:15pm 492:

Is pink not well today?
  Fri. 1/15/10 2:16pm momosuke araki jr.:

my pleasure. whoops, i meant to write tim lawrence, not (simon) reynolds. tim lawrence also wrote that new arthur russell bio.
  Fri. 1/15/10 2:18pm coelacanth:

got to go...Thank you,Bryce. ciao
  Fri. 1/15/10 2:21pm bryce:

see ya, c! have a good week
  Fri. 1/15/10 2:23pm Ike:

  Fri. 1/15/10 2:24pm Carmichael:

Ike, are you mad at the comma or lack of spacing?
  Fri. 1/15/10 2:26pm Ike:

Nah, just making a futile attempt to imitate this entrancing drone. Drone. Drone. Oh yeah.
  Fri. 1/15/10 2:26pm Floyd:

Pink has a stomach ache today.
  Fri. 1/15/10 2:27pm BSI:

good lord and hell's bats!
Just getting back to the stream. I've missed much. Haven't heard Bryce in a donkey's age. Whatever that is.
  Fri. 1/15/10 2:28pm Ike:

WOAH! Electrification! NICE. But they should probably stop touching the catenary wires. BZZZZZZZZZZZZR.
  Fri. 1/15/10 2:28pm bryce:

blaukinderwurst! have you been smuggling??
  Fri. 1/15/10 2:30pm BSI:

smuggling SNUGGIES! It's the blanket with SLEEVES, goddammit!!!!
  Fri. 1/15/10 2:31pm rhBand:

believe it or not, it took 9 musicians to play this tune.
  Fri. 1/15/10 2:33pm Ike:

Ah, that accounts for the richness of the sound. Kudos.
  Fri. 1/15/10 2:36pm BSI:

it's a lovely thing.
  Fri. 1/15/10 2:42pm bryce:

rhfloyd, if you are a non-sf member, many years of thanks.

ps please don't release shit like this in editions of FIFTY, you goofs.
  Fri. 1/15/10 2:43pm Keilidh:

We just parked in front of the house, so my mom goes, 'Bye Bryce" and shuts off the radio. Johnny goes, 'oh man! That was my favorite song!"
  Fri. 1/15/10 2:46pm bryce:

johnny! you're in the will.

i do bequeath my electric slinky
  Fri. 1/15/10 2:49pm keilidh:

That doesn't even make sense... Slinkies are metal. Electric slinkies would electri"cute".
  Fri. 1/15/10 2:50pm rhfloydc++:

the most detailed page i found on this rhband stuff has a bush/cheney in 04 banner at the top - it's good stuff; what has happened to them?
  Fri. 1/15/10 2:51pm J-Mar:

Beautiful, just beautiful.
  Fri. 1/15/10 2:54pm bryce:

k, not if it's connected to stereo guitar amps.

rh — daaaaaaaaaa!!!!!

thanks j, all, and ta-ta
  Fri. 1/15/10 2:55pm U-S-E-L-E-S-S, useless:

ohhhHHHHHH. my temple is positively gurgling. identifying a problem to merely state the fucking problem correctly. now the excitement really begins! CORRECTION: buy with confidence.
  Fri. 1/15/10 2:56pm Sandy in Houston:

what instrument is this Dreyblatt thing?
  Fri. 1/15/10 2:58pm bryce:

would you believe it's a double bass?
  Fri. 1/15/10 3:00pm BSI:

great stuff, though I could only catch the last half hour, ish.
  Fri. 1/15/10 3:10pm Sandy in Houston:

now it seems so obvious.... thanks.
