o ye great and holy crap, I was hoping to hear some of this... haven't had a chance to score a copy of the new Swans yet....
  Thu. 9/16/10 3:08pm postmanpaul:

Hi Fabio, I can tell we're in for something here...
  Thu. 9/16/10 3:10pm GenericPlacebo:

and i thought i saw their last show a few back...
glad to ear it being done to us again
  Thu. 9/16/10 3:17pm elka:

oh swans so nice
  Thu. 9/16/10 3:17pm Looms:

The day off i need to see the Swans in Paris has not been given yet. I'm in suspense, aaargh!
  Thu. 9/16/10 3:19pm Cecile:

wow. I had kind of lost interest in the Swans, but this is really piquing my curiousity.
  Thu. 9/16/10 3:19pm Seda:

Hi Fabio, listening to your show for the first time. I'm hosting a radio show in Istanbul and was going to open it next week also with 'No words/no thoughts' .It's kind of my favourite track this year and i'm really excited to hear it on your show at the moment. Thanks for the great playlists!
  Thu. 9/16/10 3:24pm Chris from DC:

Seriously thinking I need to go see Swans after all.
  Thu. 9/16/10 3:24pm BSI:

oh hell yes you do.
  Thu. 9/16/10 3:25pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

yeah, I agree...this is scary and trippy and everything it should be.
  Thu. 9/16/10 3:27pm north guinea hills:

@Cecile, yeah, I was never a Swans fan, even w/ many friends that were hard-core fans, but Michael Gira has been opening new portals of poly-dimensional fun (ie:, his work w/ akron family) in his recent stuff, so, I'm not surprised that this vibrates so nicely.
  Thu. 9/16/10 3:28pm Parq:

Speaking of animals, anybody know anything about that teensy octopus pic on the home page this afternoon?
  Thu. 9/16/10 3:29pm BSI:

i dug all the phases, early noise/screaming, sad crooning old fart, and now this... it's all veddy good ...
  Thu. 9/16/10 3:29pm Mike East:

seriously intense. I like it.
  Thu. 9/16/10 3:30pm steve:

anyone else love Michael Gira's The Consumer? its maybe my fav writing ever. gave it to a friend in high school as a gift and his parents confiscated it. still trying to get another copy for myself...
  Thu. 9/16/10 3:32pm Cecile:

I used to like their first couple of records. But their show in the mid-80s was really kind of painful. We bailed midway, went out for Church's fried chicken and snuck back in. I don't regret it one bit.
  Thu. 9/16/10 3:35pm BSI:

yeh cecile: they opened their set at the 9:30 club in DC (dunno the year. The Burning World was the new LP) with about 20 minutes of un-attended guitars feeding back on stage before wandering on & doing the set.....
abusive, oh yes.....
  Thu. 9/16/10 3:36pm Cheri Pi:

Cecile, I agree w/ you exactly, I'm definitely interested in this new Swans record.
  Thu. 9/16/10 3:37pm slugluv1313:

WOW! YES!!! this new SWANS stuff is AMAZING!
  Thu. 9/16/10 3:39pm Dale from North Dakota:

@ Fabio: Love the Swans stuff, thanks for playing.

@ Parq: Looks like just a random meme kind of picture: http://imgfave.com/view/766736
  Thu. 9/16/10 3:48pm Parq:

Dale. My strangely Orwellian work puter won't let me access the imgfave site. I'll have a look at it when I get home. Thanks.
  Thu. 9/16/10 3:56pm Parq:

Fabio: This Vibracathedral piece is just hypnotic. I can't seem to focus away from it.
  Thu. 9/16/10 4:01pm Rob:

Which track on that record is the Vibracathedral Orchestra song?
  Thu. 9/16/10 4:02pm Cheri Pi:

Fabio, I saw that Leon Levinstein show a few weeks ago, it's fantastic-well worth the journey!
  Thu. 9/16/10 4:07pm steve:

think the venue with the vw bus was the wetlands?
  Thu. 9/16/10 4:08pm BSI:

I was gonna say Wetlands as well..... memory is..... fuzzy......
  Thu. 9/16/10 4:11pm Mike East:

Just watched Mr. Hulot's Holiday last week...Mon Oncle is next on my list. Very silly humor
  Thu. 9/16/10 4:12pm mick:

fabio, please play magma......i`ve heard people laugh so often when talking about them, i wanna know what all the fuss is about
  Thu. 9/16/10 4:17pm herr noiser:

Ork Alarm! Fabio's memory has temporarily failed him but I believe he played that track around the time of their last NYC appearence (which I wanna say was 2007). I'd never heard it then, but I was suitably impressed to remember and recall it here.
  Thu. 9/16/10 4:18pm BSI:

All my favorite stuff is in the 20-minute-per-track range, so that might be a bit much of a commitment.......
  Thu. 9/16/10 4:18pm steve:

also curious to hear some magma, or at least a recommendation for a record to start with. so many releases...
  Thu. 9/16/10 4:21pm herr noiser:

the show was pretty amazing - i found myself laughing at them too for the first 10 minutes but it contiues to build to something peculiarly intense
  Thu. 9/16/10 4:21pm north guinea hills:

I prefer my saxes rustic.....
  Thu. 9/16/10 4:21pm BSI:

Kohntarkosz (1974) works well as an introduction...
  Thu. 9/16/10 4:24pm herr noiser:

there was this comp called Zeuhl on 45 that was listed on a lot of WFMU playlists but I could never find reference to it elsewhere - contains the track Mekanik Machine which I think was a Kohntarkhosz related single - I'd like to know if their really is such a compilation
  Thu. 9/16/10 4:38pm mick:

is this magma?
i laughed all the same
  Thu. 9/16/10 4:38pm Cecile:

  Thu. 9/16/10 4:41pm Cecile:

although this song rocks more than they usually do.
  Thu. 9/16/10 4:42pm Looms:

Nice but true.
  Thu. 9/16/10 4:43pm Chris from DC:

@Cecile We'll find out Saturday at Sonic Circuits.Should be interesting.
  Thu. 9/16/10 4:44pm Cecile:

Yeah. I want them to have a Twitter account and post in the language they made up.
  Thu. 9/16/10 4:45pm greg:

can someone post what's the behind the DJ music between songs? that would be great!
  Thu. 9/16/10 4:52pm BSI:

HEY NOW..... I consider myself a decent moron...
  Thu. 9/16/10 4:53pm Bad Ronald:

I am a certifiable moron!
  Thu. 9/16/10 4:54pm Cheri Pi:

D'ya have any Parson Sounds laying around?
  Thu. 9/16/10 5:04pm north guinea hills:

more of a run-of-the-mill mediocre moron myself....
  Thu. 9/16/10 5:07pm stingy d:

stingy d is a moron, but dunno how the level of explain it is.
  Thu. 9/16/10 5:28pm Cecile:

Speaking of made-up languages, does anyone remember that cartoon that Richard Corben had in Heavy Metal magazine that had the lizard people enemies speaking in Esperanto?
  Thu. 9/16/10 5:29pm stingy d:

this reminds me of that cool sublime song.
  Thu. 9/16/10 5:34pm Mike East:

this sounds like the thunderstorm going on outside right now.
  Thu. 9/16/10 5:34pm Mike East:

minus the thunder
  Thu. 9/16/10 5:35pm stingy d:

just kidding sublime is way more spontaneous.
  Thu. 9/16/10 5:37pm stingy d:

just kidding the rain is making wacky of me.
  Thu. 9/16/10 5:39pm Mike East:

New Jersey has disappeared from my view across the Hudson
  Thu. 9/16/10 5:42pm Ike:

Yeah that thunder is ricocheting intensely through the 44th St. canyons and off the walls of Grand Central. It's like a gargantuan construction robot smashing steel girders together and banging them on the pavement.
  Thu. 9/16/10 5:43pm stingy d:

i was supposed to be riding a bike right now and for 5 hours after this, but i woke up with ze back pain.
  Thu. 9/16/10 5:50pm steve:

anyone win those tix or was i the only one that called in?
  Thu. 9/16/10 5:53pm Ike:

What tickets were they? I wasn't paying close enough attn. to the mic breaks. P.S. The music is great today!
  Thu. 9/16/10 5:57pm steve:

merzbow and eliane radigue... i actually already have tix to the other merz show at ipr, AND the other eliane show, but both are so rare i want as much i can get...
  Thu. 9/16/10 6:21pm Bad Ronald:

Tornado in Williamsburg
