A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

  Thu. 5/6/10 9:33am erella:

Goood morning trouble.
  Thu. 5/6/10 9:37am Francis:

Bonjour Trouble,
I didn't know Francoise Hardy had sung in a Malcom Mclaren track.
Since tuesday in France,winter is coming back in May ! Snow,cold,fog,a sort of post miniature winter ! I'm with you just for few tracks before returning to my work where I haven't internet.But I'm happy,I 've just discovered I could listen to your last four shows on mp3, so I 'll be able to listen to Trouble everywhere !!
Great Marianne Dissard song (does she still live in Arizona ?)
  Thu. 5/6/10 9:43am moose:

this blue steel song is extraordinary
i heard it was used in a mcdonald's commercial
which broke my heart a bit!
  Thu. 5/6/10 9:48am Erella:

Is outrageous that the NJ governor would think of taking money out of the public library system. That is a huge chunk too. I'm amazed that this isn't getting more publicity. Mind boggling.
I bet his kids have adequate access to resources!
Libraries are important and of course valuable in ways that this short sighted guy has no idea about.
Feh!
  Thu. 5/6/10 9:52am m.:

omar souleyman is playing his first US show on June 19th in cleveland, slowhio... cma.org
  Thu. 5/6/10 9:54am Chris - Bristol:

Oh I get it: fahrenheit 451 / book burning etc... Election day here in the UK - praying that the Tories (Conservatives) don't get back in!
  Thu. 5/6/10 9:54am trouble:

yes outrageous! write the gov via NJLA.org!!! Hello erella. thank you for the cd package, haven't even had a minute to sit down and watch it, am looking forward to it!.
  Thu. 5/6/10 9:58am listener stu:

Morning Trouble !
  Thu. 5/6/10 10:01am trouble:

bonjour francis! ola sebastian and stu....
  Thu. 5/6/10 10:09am Francis:

I was sure ,Trouble, you were going to play today a track of last Omar Souleyman album !! Last summer in a music festival,he had played in Paris before Deerhoof : Greg Saunier had loved his show but was a bit embarrassed to play after such a so particular,"festive","authentic" music even if I think Deerhoof's music is as joyous and festive (even more for me) ,in a diiferent way of course.
  Thu. 5/6/10 10:13am Cecile:

Unbelievable. Even our governor, the Scrooge-like Tim Pawlenty left some money for libraries.
  Thu. 5/6/10 10:14am chris from london:

trouble. we are all voting tactically to STOP CAMERON, but we don't want BROWN either, so we have to go CLEGG

Hung parliament!!! that would be fun

love
  Thu. 5/6/10 10:16am ERella:

Thanks Trouble. I got this link at the NJLA.org site www.savemynjlibrary.org

Reprehensible behaviour.
74% is outrageous.
10% would be unthinkable, but 74%?
What is wrong with this guy??
  Thu. 5/6/10 10:19am dc pat:

souleyman is playing with Konono No. ! on May 11th somewhere in Bristol you English types. That sounds like the show of the decade.
  Thu. 5/6/10 10:19am mysterio!:

love "if you're lookin' for trouble, then trouble is my name! " in the billy joe spears song!

you're the best, Trouble! xo!
  Thu. 5/6/10 10:19am seang:

all politicians are scumbags no matter what party!
  Thu. 5/6/10 10:20am erella:

Trouble, on David Byrne's radio blog, I heard Elini Mandel and friends do a song that I love. ----(You Don't Know) How Glad I Am by the Living Sisters.
Have you heard this?

I tried to buy the track on amazon and can't because I am not in the USA. Have you heard it? He changes the songs every month and it is on the May playlist.
  Thu. 5/6/10 10:20am dc pat:

excuse me for being dumb, but after Tony Blair, just what is the difference between the Labor and Tories??
  Thu. 5/6/10 10:22am Derek in MD:

I've been encountering this bizarre attitude lately that libraries are for "homeless people and losers who can't afford to *buy* books." Appalling!

When I pay my state taxes, I pretend all the money is going to Maryland's fantastic public library system.
  Thu. 5/6/10 10:23am Dead Corporate Eyes:

that's them tea partiers fer ya. I heart libraries.
  Thu. 5/6/10 10:25am BSI:

Derek: yep, I credit the Laurel Public Library (MD) for kicking my butt down the rabbit-hole of wild music -- it was Ornette Coleman's 'New York is Now!' -- I checked it out on a whim (age 11ish) and ... boom ... pretty eclectic item for a sleepy little suburban library in the mid '70s.
  Thu. 5/6/10 10:26am dc pat:

I hear libraries too. My library burned down couple years back but they're rebuilding it.
  Thu. 5/6/10 10:27am dc pat:

heart not hear....funny though
  Thu. 5/6/10 10:28am Chris - Bristol:

Well said London Chris - "I agree with Clegg". Hang the lot of them!

@DC Pat: very little I'm afraid, no longer the clear ideological divide in the search to appeal to middle ground. Although the Tories must be stopped! Not familiar with Souleyman but I like his name - vote Souleyman!
  Thu. 5/6/10 10:28am Parq:

BSI, of course that's exactly why the right wingers find cuts to libararies so attractive.
  Thu. 5/6/10 10:30am Cecile:

I have to say that the best thing the City of Mpls did was to merge their libraries in with Hennepin County's. They are now open 7 days a week and have a coffee bar, like the other Hennepin Cty libraries. It's pretty sweet.
  Thu. 5/6/10 10:32am BSI:

Then of course here in DC, while the renovations are going on @ the Mt.Pleasant library, they finally opened the temporary location & some witless dweeb drove his SUV into the back of the place. We're doomed!

And Cecile: if that utopian library scene is a vision of things to come in our New Socialist Nightmare, sign me up!
  Thu. 5/6/10 10:33am Cecile:

BSI: I put you down twice.
  Thu. 5/6/10 10:33am dc pat:

Chris: get yer ass over to the Metropolis on the 11th at all costs.
  Thu. 5/6/10 10:36am fishmonkeystew:

Sun Ra! Shazaaaaam!
  Thu. 5/6/10 10:37am sugarwolf:

people who complain about the cost of local libraries make no sense to me.
  Thu. 5/6/10 10:41am Parq:

Sugarwolf, there is nothing about populist politics in American nowadays that doesn't scare me -- especially when, more and more, the rants are presented at gunpoint.
  Thu. 5/6/10 10:43am seang:

Liberty? are you out there? we used to drive ice cream trucks in Maine
  Thu. 5/6/10 10:44am sugarwolf:

i love crazy letters to the editor saying we don't need new libraries, we have the internet!! have these people seen the internet lately??
  Thu. 5/6/10 10:45am mb:

Ahhhhh! Dub me delightfully Troubs.
  Thu. 5/6/10 10:46am dc pat:

..and where do vast numbers of people access the Internets? uh, the library.
  Thu. 5/6/10 10:47am ERella:

I read yesterday that Barbara Bush kept the private library in her home managed by using the dewey decimal system.

Sugarwolf. I am not sure I understand your implication.
Do you really think the internet could ever replace a public library system? Did you bump your head, friend?
  Thu. 5/6/10 10:47am Kevin in Austin:

Wait, their name is "dub"? That will be impossible to Google.
  Thu. 5/6/10 10:54am sugarwolf:

erella, no, i think people who think the internet can replaces libraries are a little misguided.

i
  Thu. 5/6/10 10:54am BSI:

classic Rafi!!!
  Thu. 5/6/10 10:55am trouble:

even worse kevin there is no name, the dub was referring to the style of ripping other musics and doing your own thing with it, no credits
  Thu. 5/6/10 11:02am brian:

kevin, trouble.. is it errol brown that does balistic queen? http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/treasure-isle-dub-vol-2/id333939800
  Thu. 5/6/10 11:02am north guinea hills:

I actually have that Treasure Isle dub lp and a few others in the series. On one of the other lps, the dubs are credited to errol browne aka dubmaster. I imagine this one is done by him as well, although this was duke reid's imprint, it's hard to know.
  Thu. 5/6/10 11:08am Chris - Bristol:

I think that the original version of that dub track was "Queen majesty" by the Techniques if that helps?
  Thu. 5/6/10 11:08am herb:

FUN BOY THREE being played! and i've got my fb3 pin on now (via tag sale, 25cents). and, boo hiss gov. christie. new york public library just mailed out a "help, budget cuts" letter. libraries are too big to fail!
  Thu. 5/6/10 11:08am Kevin in Austin:

Well... it sounds good anyway :)
  Thu. 5/6/10 11:12am dc pat:

"that thing bands do to get ready"= smoke another cigarette, chug some more vodka, go out and get a slice, take a nap...
  Thu. 5/6/10 11:25am Sweet Luke:

where that live music at?
  Thu. 5/6/10 11:28am ?:

whoa--this tune popped up on my iPod this very morning. no kidding. like, cosmic, man.
  Thu. 5/6/10 11:32am seang:

cool thing at Boing Boing--cutting libraries:
http://www.boingboing.net/2010/05/05/cutting-libraries-in.html
  Thu. 5/6/10 11:33am Janna:

did you guys see Young @ Heart? I'll never forget the scene where they sing this song at the penitentiary
  Thu. 5/6/10 11:50am Cecile:

The band sounds great.
  Thu. 5/6/10 11:56am jen v.:

wow, this cover!
  Thu. 5/6/10 11:59am north guinea hills:

The world would be a much nicer place if there were more yoko covers.
  Thu. 5/6/10 12:00pm eRella:

Where is holly miranda playing in toronto? They sound great
  Thu. 5/6/10 12:01pm erella:

"Cutting libraries in a recession is like closing supermarkets during a famine"

That's great.
