Listener comments!

  Mon. 11/8/10 3:10am jj.:

luminous lifeforms of the ether, hullo!
  Mon. 11/8/10 3:15am coalhard:

i wonder how much vincent price costs--hehe!!
  Mon. 11/8/10 3:18am gatorade:

i guess this is this the the grateful dead being plunderphonicized into oneida?..
  Mon. 11/8/10 3:21am jj.:

indeedy. that. plus a remarkably sensible subway preacher.
  Mon. 11/8/10 3:30am coalhard:

chris hanson told NASA to take a seat over there--they took upskirt photo of 14 b old comet
  Mon. 11/8/10 3:31am cowbells:

Subway preaching is one of those remarkable trades that generally goes without reward. It has to be the most embarassing kind of performance out there, worse than like modern dance..
  Mon. 11/8/10 3:45am hay bales:

no way! i bought this 'earth opera' thing last yr at the record fair but i thought it was horrible-- only listened to it once. this is a diff. album, i guess.. soundin' bett'r!
  Mon. 11/8/10 3:47am jj.:

there's some real cheeseball stuff on here, this was the only tune i really dug. features future newgrass dudes/garcia associates david grisman + peter rowan.
  Mon. 11/8/10 3:47am “welcome to queens, runners”:

happy centennial, btw! 'tis a cool #..,
  Mon. 11/8/10 3:52am sergeant pepper:

nice rhyme: "newgrass". (don't kno that one!) did notice the dead connex, tho. yeah: the guy who sold it said: 'boston psych- BLOWS my mind!!" so i gave it a chance.. whatev., glad you've built a roast beef sa..lvage outtof it.
  Mon. 11/8/10 3:53am minnie mouse:

do you know carole king's version of 'wasn't born to follow'? it's great..
  Mon. 11/8/10 4:01am jj.:

ooh, no i don't. imagine it'd be purdy.
  Mon. 11/8/10 4:04am free chili:

yah. it's her singing with 'the city'. give it a listen!
  Mon. 11/8/10 4:04am Rob W:

Just to add a little b/g to a couple of earlier posts: Newgrass actually is a pretty commonly used term for artists who root their style in bluegrass conventions but add elements to the mix not typical to conventional bluegrass - different instruments, borrowing from other genres like jazz and rock, adding long jams / improvs and song forms not typical to bluegrass. The concept dates back to the early 70s (the band New Grass Revival featuring Bela Fleck - who is hugely popular today as a solo artist - and Sam Bush, among other notables, started up in 1971).
  Mon. 11/8/10 4:09am pavement-joints:

Word, Rob W! What wisdom you guys spout! I guess ev'ry genre's got to be distended at some point: I will take a listen'.
  Mon. 11/8/10 4:14am long sprinting shadows:

is this album john cale's equivalent of lou reed's metal machine music? altho it's way nicer sounding
  Mon. 11/8/10 4:14am jj.:

most the newgrass i've heard, i've found problematic, never quite as liberated as i'd hoped. though i guess that's what henry flynt is for. like fusion, it's a fine line.
  Mon. 11/8/10 4:16am jj.:

rob, you got any recommendations?
  Mon. 11/8/10 4:17am jj.:

yeah, very MMM-like, though this predates it by a good 8 years. just cale on a vox continental organ.
  Mon. 11/8/10 4:22am “keep it moving”:

JJ, thx: the organ is very nice, & kind of gharishly blared out.. the track's got some nice shifting tonal patterns.
  Mon. 11/8/10 4:48am greysoul:

Quick, Mr. DJ - I'd like something to listen to whilst I read Brian Jones' response to Mick Jagger's response to Keef's bio. It just came in on the Ouija board - this is TOO exciting.
  Mon. 11/8/10 4:50am jj.:

Do feel free to dictate!
  Mon. 11/8/10 4:56am adolescent rock bands:

Greysoul! I was nodding off ("nod" to Keef, perhaps!) but now I think I'll skim the NYrkr article on that bastard. My friend told me the other day i talked like Keith & I have no idea what that means but I was insulted. Must do some reedin' up.
  Mon. 11/8/10 5:02am greysoul:

Oh, Jeezum - wait. You know what? This might be a hoax ...

I'm almost thinking that this might be a dead rock journalist posing as Brian Jones. Oh, man - do I feel silly, or what?

Cancel that music-to-read-dead-guy-by request, Mr. DJ. As you were.
  Mon. 11/8/10 5:06am jj.:

Wait! Greysoul! Don't stop! There are some dead rock journos I'd love to hear from! Bangs? Robert Palmer? Get back on there...
  Mon. 11/8/10 5:24am greysoul:

Man - this is getting too weird.

I'm pretty sure this is from Nick Kent (still alive) posing as one of his dead former co-workers at NME (many of who died after working with him) posing as Brian Jones (gone; great hair) writing a response to Mick (still seething over remark about his private parts) after Mick's fake Memo From Turner last week.

You know what the biggest shame of this all is?

Lester Bangs is dead.
  Mon. 11/8/10 5:28am 2nd coming halloween:

G, I'm also sorry that Lester Bangs is Dead, but what is this 'memo which you speak of?
  Mon. 11/8/10 5:32am greysoul:

Boy Howdy! If that's not a song request, I don't know what is, Mr. DJ ...
  Mon. 11/8/10 5:37am jj.:

Not a bad idea!
  Mon. 11/8/10 5:48am jj.:

(we'll get there)
  Mon. 11/8/10 5:56am mynameisjOhn:

Hey, play something I can slow-grind my ladyfriend to. I'm talking about some Grey Daturas.
  Mon. 11/8/10 5:56am mynameisjOhn:

Hey, play something I can slow-grind my ladyfriend to. I'm talking about some Grey Daturas.
  Mon. 11/8/10 5:57am jj.:

sorry, no slow grinding here. wait 'til nachum comes on with JM in the AM. you'll get all the grinding you want.
  Mon. 11/8/10 5:57am greysoul:

RY!

Nicely done, Mr. DJ - nicely done.
  Mon. 11/8/10 5:57am mynameisjOhn:

Nevermind, Micky Jiggy will do the trick.
  Mon. 11/8/10 6:00am sundays in ny~sea:

hmm.. interestin' tune: adio's peeps
