Listener comments!

  Wed. 9/14/11 9:02am hamburger:

hello - I kinda thought that was Daniel Johnston :o
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:02am FOhn from FOslo:

Hi Ken, fellow listeners, commenters!

  Wed. 9/14/11 9:04am Dan B From Upstate:

Hey, every peoples.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:05am Ken:

Morning everybody! So happy to be here.

FoFo, dont impersonate John from Oslo! Unless you are he. Impersonation is no good.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:08am pierre:

Bah alors ça alors !

Bonjour Ken
Bonjour all listeners !
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:09am Greg from Detroit:

LOVE the Licorice Roots! A supremely overlooked band ...
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:10am Become Death:

I am Become Death, Destroyer of Worlds.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:10am Mark:

what happened to the idea of users having a usercode and password to post listener comments, that would certainly cut back on impersonators
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:10am Ken:

I am lacking in musics good people! Suggestions please. especially you know...
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:11am pierre:

isn't Cecile suppose to do this job ?
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:11am Ken:

Mark, I know you wont believe me, but it is coming very soon.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:11am Mark:

that means you Cecile
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:12am Sam:

No idea! I rely on you to find musical treasures among all the merde.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:12am ғoғo©:

Ken, it wasn't an impersonation but an homage! ;)

Cecile: All Glory to Hypno-Cecile.

Mark: Good idea! Also another good idea is to use a copyright symbol like myself! It will certainly deter any of my impersonators!
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:12am Sam:

Impersonation is the highest form of flattery
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:13am Dan B From Upstate:

I'm feeling... dance-y Cecile. Could you suggest Ken play something, um... hoppity, please?
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:13am Mark:

I look forward to it Ken
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:13am Ken:

thanks fofo. It's also just that I so miss John from oslo...
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:13am fofo:

  Wed. 9/14/11 9:16am pierre:

  Wed. 9/14/11 9:16am pierre:

Chrome is perfect though
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:17am Tom ( The Bactrian Support Network ):

  Wed. 9/14/11 9:17am ғoғo©:

  Wed. 9/14/11 9:18am dancee:

  Wed. 9/14/11 9:22am Vincent Van Bingo:

  Wed. 9/14/11 9:22am pierre:

Ken YOU ARE MY HERO AND I LOVE YOU !
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:23am still b/p:

Dear Jesus: Though I have been very bad very often, please don't ever make me clean George Clinton's living room. Amen.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:23am Ken:

Wow, what great suggestions, please keep 'em coming!
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:24am Cecile:

I would also like to hear Who's Afraid of Detroit by Claude VonStroke
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:24am Marmalade Kitty:

Did you manage to salvage any vinyl from the damage, Ken?
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:25am pierre:

the gif w/ WIRE, actually explains a lot about how Colin Newman/Graham Lewis manage to sing one this one
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:25am Vivian:

After a dismal commute, it is so good to hear Wire. Thanks Ken!
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:26am Dan B From Upstate:

Cecile, I think the question is, when are you going to come to Jersey City and do a listener hour? I'm sure Ken would reinstate it for you.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:26am Ken:

Good Hawkwind tune anybody? I am an ignorant fan.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:26am Mark:

Silver Machine
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:27am Neg-guh-tor:

morning, Ken. How bout Sun City Girls and The Screamers?
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:27am Cecile:

You can never go wrong with SIlver Machine. That also pleases the Motorhead contingent.

Someday, Dan B! Trying to get some debt paid down so that money can go to travel!
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:27am Vincent Van Bingo:

It's nice outside, Dick El Demasiado would be good too.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:27am Cecile:

SUn citty, oh yeah
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:28am Ken:

I always play Silver Machine. something else?
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:28am pierre:

"Hippy" - Hawkwind (?)
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:30am Emile:

Anything by wevie stonder aka wevie de crepon.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:30am Vivian:

How about some Neil Young? Albuquerque or Pocahontas.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:30am Tom ( The Bactrian Support Network ):

... remembers back in day my older brothers flinging say a Sabbath or Yes or Floyd record accross the room and putting on Hawkwind and I grew to like them too ... !!!
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:30am jan:

since you asked- these come to mind:
Apache- Jorgen Ingraham
Nico-vs-Trance Groove
Barbeque, Buddy Scott
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:30am Mark:

the original version of Motorhead or Orgone Accumulator
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:31am Larry Wallis:

"Police Car"
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:32am Emile:

I like 'motorhead' by hawkwind, very unmetal version
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:32am still b/p:

Something from Mexican Institute of Sound or the Roots of Thai Funk compilation.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:33am Tom ( The Bactrian Support Network ):

"you only know your're dreaming " is the only Hawkwind tune I can think of at the moment
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:34am pierre:

(or a Johnny Halliday 33" played as a 45"…) - never heard that
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:35am Tom ( The Bactrian Support Network ):

..... ooo time to put on the old AKG 240's ... ooo the colors .... !!
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:35am Cecile:

this sounds astonishingly Monkees-like. Very Mike Nesmith like.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:35am Neg-guh-tor:

How bout Hawklords? 25 years
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:36am Mark:

something from Torch of the Mystics by the Sun City Girls such as "The Shining Path" or "Space Prophet Dogon" would fit in quite well
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:36am trish:

@earlier login comments
I hope I'll still be able to impersonate myself. I do such a good job at it.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:37am Ken:

Yes! It DOES sound like The Monkees!
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:37am ғoғo©:

My little list of suggestions:

* Die Goldenen Zitronen (other than the one with the Chicks on Speed?)
* Joe Frank (any other good one from Shows?)
* Melted Men (any other good one besides Ingrowed.. or Butter Roll?)
* DJ Yoda
* Buddy Scott Trio
* Bedful of Metaphysicians

(continue in next page)
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:38am Cheri Pi:

I want to hear Urban Gorilla as covered by Mudhoney.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:38am Mark:

Hawkwind were great fans of The Monkees
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:38am pierre:

or the theme of MANNIX.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:38am trolly mctrollster:

Andy Breckman'st stand up please
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:38am Neg-guh-tor:

Buddy Scott Trio BBQ!
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:38am Cecile:

  Wed. 9/14/11 9:39am Cecile:

of course, baby animal
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:39am dc pat:

MAN. Too many comments, can't...keep...track....
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:39am Dan B From Upstate:

I, too, would love to hear the theme from Mannix.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:40am Mark:

The Monkees were early users of the Moog Synthesizer
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:41am dc pat:

I wanna hear something by Family Curse. Jason turned me on to them--they kill.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:41am Cecile:

They're still underrated.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:41am pierre:

et voilà !
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:42am Ken:

Lemmy and Davey Jones were good friends, from what I hear.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:42am dc pat:

..or Porpoise Song would be great.....YES!!
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:43am vivian:

Or Chemical Bros-Golden Path.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:43am Jim:

I suggest Stan Ridgway's "Camouflage" (it has been in my head for the last two days), but it would be a jarring transition from anything you've played so far.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:43am Cecile:

it's interesting that musicians often don't have the tribalism that fans can have.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:45am pierre:

what do you mean by tribalism, Cecile ?
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:45am Cheri Pi:

Oingo Boingo- Grey matter
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:45am Mark:

In fact according to Wikipedia Mickey Dolenz purchased the third Moog produced.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:45am Neg-guh-tor:

Speak for yourself, Cecile! I'm wearing a loincloth.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:47am Cecile:

LIke "I can't hang with you because you like ________", Or "__________'s fans are all assholes."
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:48am pierre:

i see Cecile
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:48am BSI:

.....finally crawling in here. Of course just missed a track from Hawkwind's 2nd finest LP..... eh well....
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:48am dc pjat:

  Wed. 9/14/11 9:48am CeQcile:

I am inspired.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:49am Dan B From Upstate:

Are you sure it's not katakana?
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:51am Vincent Van Bingo:

Drugy vibe? Pain Teens?
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:52am trish:

Silent letters don't do much when you're asked to spell your name. Errors must be made.
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:53am jken jfreedjman:

"i lovej the jsilent jay!!!!"
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:54am Jay:

I love Silent Bob!
  Wed. 9/14/11 9:55am Sofija from Albania:

  Wed. 9/14/11 9:58am pierre:

  Wed. 9/14/11 9:59am Pete:

Hey Ken,
This is kind of reminding me of the Waitresses. I love the Waitresses! Can you play something by them?
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:00am ғoғo©:

Nice played, Ken! Thanks! =D
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:02am dc pat:

this Skeletons song rules.
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:02am ғoғo©:

All innocence is lost when you slow down this song.
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:03am alberto:

oh yeah, i like this
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:04am trish:

pjictou?
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:05am moose:

  Wed. 9/14/11 10:06am CeQcile:

they were the best Tin Huey spin off band ever.
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:08am giselle:

ha ha! like Hitler
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:10am Mark:

something is added to commercially produced nutmeg that makes you sick if you try to consume enough to get high
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:10am pierre:

is there an ablum of this movie (werewolves on wheel) ??!
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:13am ғoғo©:

pierre,

From the Wikiland: Werewolves on Wheels is a 1971 American exploitation film that blends two genres: the outlaw biker film and the traditional horror movie.
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:16am Ken:

Oh it's real! It had Barry McGuire in it. It sounds terrible/great.
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:17am T-Zero:

@pierre... Bent Crayon has the album
http://tinyurl.com/3wfx9d3
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:18am pierre:

thanks fofo - i had the chance to see this movie, a great moment of undestanding between me and my brain. But i wondered if there was a O.S.T. album or something…
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:18am pierre:

thanks T-ZERO

Checking in, Sorry I was late. This (riderinthesky) is a great first tune for me.
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:24am ғoғo©:

Ken, this song reminds me of a Bonanza mix you played in your show before. It was from an unknown artist. Damn good song by the way, do you remember or have any more details in the liner notes about it?
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:26am p ierre:

did you know : REM made a song called ghost reindeers in the sky?
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:27am CeQcile:

I remember them playing Ghost Riders in concert.
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:28am Sam:

God this is so awful!!
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:28am hamburger:

woo - singing cows
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:28am Carmichael:

  Wed. 9/14/11 10:35am Mark:

Kathy MCcarty did a great version of "Walking the Cow" on her Daniel Johnston tribute album "Dead Dog's Eyeball: Songs of Daniel Johnston"
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:36am Carmichael:

Yes Mark, if you saw the documentary The Devil and Daniel Johnston, she is a featured interviewee.
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:37am Ken:

Damn MD, I dont remember. I've ALWAYS been interested in music by the mentally ill..
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:38am CeQcile:

I think if you're a musician in the first place, a lot of people consider you mentally ill.
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:38am Mark:

Have not seen that Carmichael, sounds interesting
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:39am MD:

Ken...I'll try to find it...digitize it and send you a copy...
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:39am BSI:

hm..... I've been curious about this Kate Bush re-do LP, not quite convinced...
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:40am dc pat:

I share that interest Ken. Syd Barrett's sense of rhythm and arrangements are amazing.
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:41am Sam:

The only truly mentally ill people are those who insist that they aren't.
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:41am don:

is that supposed to be "DJ Commander Adama"?
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:41am HeyMan!!:

I gots my red shoes on! :)
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:41am ғoғo©:

Amazing graph about getting high around the world!!! Never heard of the l-dosing mp3s (see number 13). Do you have any of that in the WFMU library?
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:42am pierre:

@don : what does "BUMP" mean.
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:43am CeQcile:

bump it to the top of the thread because it's important
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:44am Luke:

Ken, are you making horse sounds?
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:44am Carmichael:

@dcp: I'm also a massive Syd Barrett fan. I nearly feel that there's only 1 true Pink Floyd, and they mutated into something else after he left.
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:44am HeyMan!!:

bump me up - rolling stones new one
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:45am ғoғo©:

pierre,

And opposite of BUMP would be SAGE.
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:45am HeyMan!!:

Indeed!!!
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:46am dc pat:

2 different groups Carm. They should have changed their name after Syd got the boot.

I once read this article about Rush's lack of female fans. To support the text there were some photos of the bathrooms at their concerts. Unsurprisingly the women's ones had no one.
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:54am Ken:

Oh My God Carmichael, really?! I LOOOVVVEEE that movie! Was he the guy who played that song while James Coburn fucked the hippy chick in the field?
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:55am C#:

I can appreciate Rush, but I like Van der Graaf better.
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:56am Carmichael:

That's him, Ken. I think the song was called "Changes" or "Changin' ". As the secret agents crawled through the weeds and died one by one, ol' Barry was wailing away plaintively.
  Wed. 9/14/11 10:56am CeQcile:

Actually, there is a hilarious bit in the Deena Weinstein book on heavy metal where she, a college professor, explains the lyrical progression of the second side of 2112 and the guys in the parking lot are all "wow! that girl is smart! and she likes Rush!"
roro, that's how it was at Metallica, Opeth and Cecil Taylor for me. I got a marriage proposal (a little too late) for writing about Blue Oyster CUlt.

I enjoy being a girl!

oooh the RADIOVISION FESTIVAL… another great event where us, people that live across the atlantic will not be able to attempt.

Carmichael, yeah, it was called "Changes." What an amazing movie. And so prophetic. Only the phone company turned out to be google.

Yes. It's called Duran Duran.
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:07am Vicki:

you have to have a US bank account to do Kickstarter. We have similar ventures here but they aren't so successful because people aren't so used to paying for cultural and arts things, is my thought. People are getting used to it FAST now though
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:07am Vjivian:

CeQcile, you have company. I have liked Rush since high school. Also got into King Crimson and Captain Beefhart in the last couple of years. Didn't know we were in such a minority.
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:08am Vjivian:

Duran Duran has two male fans-Rob Sheffield, author of Talking to Girls About Duran Duran, and my friend Alex.

I wonder if growing up as a tomboy has an impact on music, just a thought. I listened to Abba then moved into the Pink Floyd and Rush in high school. Then discovered punk & college music in my senior year. I've noticed that most of my music conversations are with guys as opposed to women. Except for my husband who loves the Grateful Dead and Wilco.

Of all the British bands, I only listened to the Kinks and the Animals. So-so on the Who, same with the Beatles, and I hated the Rolling Stones. Loved Floyd.
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:17am Cecile:

I think some noisy bands that have an art component draw female fans. I've seen 50/50 at some of the most abstract jazz shows I've been at. I think the female art lovers appreciate the performanace art aspect of free improv. That or "by God, I am going to every event on my museum season pass come hell or high water."

It was a lot like that in Detroit. Remember that song by Great Plains, "Why do punk rock guys go out with New Wave girls?" LOL.

But everyone showed up at New Wave dance night and danced to Soft Cell.

  Wed. 9/14/11 11:29am ғoғo©:

Cecile,

I also think it has to do with who introduced you with the band.Usually we turn into men when we stop listening to Teletubbies kind of songs to hear some hardcore pop (i.e. Roxette) in our teenage years, to then finally land in what your brother or uncle listens to (usually Iron Maiden or something like than). Then you mature.

@Pierre -

in French that's pronounced "EEE-Pierre" as oppossed to "EYE-Pierre", right?
  Wed. 9/14/11 11:32am Cecile:

See, I really had no musical mentor. I'm an oldest and my parents weren't that into music although my dad really liked country. So I started with soundtracks and kid's records and weird things I sang for kid's chorus and piano lessons and then just kind of stumbled around. My tastes are a weird mishmash, doing freeform didn't really help.

Fofo & Cecile, Growing up, my parents were listened to country & top 40 rock . I think they bought Rumors for themselves rather than for me. During my teen years,college stations were my salvation, something my friends weren't into. Being the oldest, I influenced my brother's interest in music. I think I drove him nuts with Rem's murmur but it is possible it paved the way for him to discover the Ravonettes. As adults, we bring over whatever we are into to my mother's house, since she has always been into music. The funniest thing she told me is that she likes Radiohead but can't stand Thom Yorke's voice!

@dc pjat My favorite is the dancing skeletons. A few years ago, I gave an additional donation to get a xxl bear shirt for my husband since he loved my shirt. Unfortunately, his shirt is tight around the armpits. So I wear it as a sleep shirt.

WFMU 50, Bird Splatter, Tim Biskup, Where Dead Air Lives, and a couple of Best Show shirts for me. I want a woof-moo shirt, but I don't like white shirts.
