Artist Track Album Label Comments Special
 
Set 1: funeral music. (Listen to this set: )
Banda Ionica  "Ombra Sacra" (track 4) (Listen: )   Options Matri Mia  Felmay  Italian brass marching band. Slow, mournful, beautiful.   
Samoan Serenaders  "Ua Faanoanoahe Fanau A Tina (In Memory Of Those Who Passed Away" (Side A, track 6) (Listen: )   Options Samoana  Viking (New Zealand)  The Samoans sound much happier about death than Banda Ionica. Also slow. Also beautiful.  ***  
 
 
Background music played during mic break:
Les Chakachas  "Love is like a Violin" (track 4) (Listen: )   Options Arriba!  RCA International  Phat sound. Feels like it's the slow song at the record hop.   
 
 
Set 2: hard-edged funk & soul-funk. (Listen to this set: )
Whitefield Brothers  "Thunderbird" (track 9) (Listen: )   Options In The Raw  Soul Fire  Hard-edged, even quirky and off-kilter.   
Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra  "Uprising" (track 6) (Listen: )   Options The Wire Tapper: 07  The Wire  Still hard-edged, just a little faster. Originally on Liberation Afro Beat Vol. 1.   
Black On White Affair  "A Bunch Of Changes" (track 24) (Listen: )   Options The Rustler Presents: Because You're Funky  Lo  Hard-edged, acidy soul-funk from the early 1970's.   
The Dynasonics  "You Got It" (track 8) (Listen: )   Options The Rustler Presents: Because You're Funky  Lo  Soul-funk from the late 1960's or early 1970's: noone is exactly sure. More sustainedly upbeat.   
 
 
Background music played during mic break:
Les Chakachas  "Love is like a Violin" (track 4) (Listen: )   Options Arriba!  RCA International  Phat sound. Feels like it's the slow song at the record hop.   
 
 
Set 3: the old radio show portion of the evening.
Lights Out  "Valse Triste" (Listen: )   Options (originally broadcast on December 29, 1942)  (none)  There are Lights Out shows that would be scary even today, but this is a fairly mild one. Two girlfriends, one naive and from the South, the other a wise-ass New Yorker from 10th Avenue, get lost and run into trouble. Today's lesson: don't leave everything to chance, not even life or death at the hands of the "gentle man" without a face in the forest cabin without any windows.....   
 
 
Background music played during mic break:
Les Chakachas  "Love is like a Violin" (track 4) (Listen: )   Options Arriba!  RCA International  Phat sound. Feels like it's the slow song at the record hop.   
 
 
Set 4: a long set of mostly quiet psych. (Listen to this set: )
Biosphere  "Gravity Assist" (track 12) (Listen: )   Options Shenzhou  Touch  Quiet, slow, deep & ambient, mysterious, soft.   
Father Moo & The Black Sheep  (no title) (track 1) (Listen: )   Options Father Moo & The Black Sheep  Acid Mothers Temple  Ghost-like vocals, a mostly light and dreamy sound.   
Yo La Tengo  "Hyas and Stenorhynchus" (track 2) (Listen: )   Options The Sounds Of The Sounds Of Science  Egon  Quiet throughout, dreamy, slow moving, occasionally spaced. Written for the surreal underwater nature films of Jean Painleve.  ***  
Sciflyer  "the time is right now" (track 3) (Listen: )   Options Sciflyer  Sciflyer  Slow psych-rock, dreamy and a bit druggy.   
ST 37  "Among peaceful" (CD #1, track 5) (Listen: )   Options Nunavut  Blue Circle  Same as Sciflyer, but a little twisted. Annoyingly, the CD skipped, so I had to end the track early.   
H.N.A.S.  "Ochs Amberge" (track 1) (Listen: )   Options The Book Of Dingenkirchen  Dom  Deep, sexy, slow & resonant. A reissue from 1988.  ***  
 
 
Background music played during mic break:
Les Chakachas  "Love is like a Violin" (track 4) (Listen: )   Options Arriba!  RCA International  Phat sound. Feels like it's the slow song at the record hop.   
 
 
Set 5: nothing fancy: just rock & punky rock. (Listen to this set: )
Gravitar  "Blue Sabbath" (track 6) (Listen: )   Options A Brief History Of (91-95)  MGOGM  A slow and quiet start, it builds to something very different: druggy, swirly, loud and intense.   
Flipper  "Sacrifice" (track 11) (begun at -4:40) (Listen: )   Options Live at CBGB's (November 18, 1983)  (none)  Easy, raw, drunk rock & roll.   
Agnostic Front  "Love To Be Hated" (track 16) (Listen: )   Options Punk-O-Rama 7  Epitaph  Great power frat-punk.  ***  
Manganzoides  "Musarana" (track 3) (Listen: )   Options Sobredosis de Horror  No Fun (Argentina)  Brazilian punky surf-rock.   
d.A Sebasstian  "I'll Be There" (track 5) (Listen: )   Options Teen Feeding Frenzy!  Go-Kustom  Fun. A cover of the Jackson 5 song (!)   
Cannibal  "Tryin'" (track 21) (Listen: )   Options Hyped To Death #51  (none)  Very/totally obscure punk from 1977 - 1984.   
Cracked Actor  "Nazi School" (track 8) (Listen: )   Options Hyped To Death #51  (none)  School! Bad!   
Piranhas  "Garbage Can" (track 1) (Listen: )   Options Piranhas  On/On Switch     
 
 
Background music played during mic break:
Les Chakachas  "Love is like a Violin" (track 4) (Listen: )   Options Arriba!  RCA International  Phat sound. Feels like it's the slow song at the record hop.   
 
 
Set 6: Experimental, ambient, and experimentally funky. (Listen to this set: )
Arco Flute Foundation  "Captain's World Apprentice" (begun at -3:18) (Listen: )   Options Everything After The Bomb is Sci-Fi.  Cenotaph     
Steinbruchel  "Lost Things We Found Borrowed At The End Of Last Week" (track 9) (begun at -4:30, ended at -1:10) (Listen: )   Options The Wire Tapper: 07  The Wire  Quiet, rumbling, slow.   
Spaceboy  (no title) (track 1) (Listen: )   Options Searching The Stone Library For The Green Page Of Illusion  Southern Lord  Quiet, ambient, spaced. It could easily be paired with Biosphere. The rest of the CD is something entirely different, however.   
Stephen Vitiello  "Sounds Building In The Fading Light" (track 1) (Listen: )   Options World Trade Center Recordings  Stephen Vitiello  Recorded in the Fall of 1999, on the 91st floor of World Trade Center tower #1. Haunting - it's the sounds of the actual building. I feel like I'm hovering in the air, and the towers are visible, shimmering off in the mythic distance. Or maybe the towers themselves are shimmeringly floating in the visible, mythic distance. Listen to it at a low-ish volume, and see for yourself.  ***  
Reynols  "Contror ratarisino" (track 9) (ended at about -1:00) (Listen: )   Options Loh Fenser Patagonia  Semi-Roar  A noisy, hallucinatory dream.   
Fred Frith  "What A Dilemma" (track 7) (Listen: )   Options Gravity  Fred  This is the "experimentally funky".   
 
 
Background music played during mic break:
Les Chakachas  "Love is like a Violin" (track 4) (Listen: )   Options Arriba!  RCA International  Phat sound. Feels like it's the slow song at the record hop.   
 
 
Set 7: Ben Webster, my hero.
Ben Webster  "De-Dar" (Side 2, track 4) (Listen: )   Options Ben Webster And Associates  Verve  A slow blues with soul. From 1959, with Coleman Hawkins, Roy Eldridge, more.  ***
