Fabio...you once played a track from Micheal Snow's The Last LP. Small request, could you play something again from it. I spoke with Micheal recently and he doesn't even have a copy!! But very cool stuff indeed.
  Thu. 2/16/12 3:20pm T-Zero:

  Thu. 2/16/12 3:21pm andymorphic:

crude, T-Zero, but effective

BEFHEART. just too cool
  Thu. 2/16/12 3:26pm bruceleh:

One of the great things of WFMU is when a DJ plays some old favorite song from way back when that you haven't heard in in years... The memories just flood on in...
  Thu. 2/16/12 3:26pm Marmalade kitty:

TZ, just being nosey..have you tried those things with that music?
  Thu. 2/16/12 3:26pm Sister Hairy Hymen:

Yes yes so very true bruceln

  Thu. 2/16/12 3:39pm Dead Corporate Ears:

  Thu. 2/16/12 3:39pm Looms:

Hello Fabio and all! Joining the unusual sounds party.
  Thu. 2/16/12 3:41pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

this RM74 fella, I think he's from Switzerland...came to CLE last summer and played in front of like five of us. And was awesome.
  Thu. 2/16/12 3:41pm trrs:

Unusual and say, emergency vehicle sounds can inspire the darndedest of things
  Thu. 2/16/12 3:43pm Carmichael:

I'm doin' some stuff right now. Just thought I'd share.
  Thu. 2/16/12 3:46pm trrs:

my stuff is a rival to the squirrel catapult.
  Thu. 2/16/12 3:49pm BSI:

squirrel catapult > george clooney
  Thu. 2/16/12 3:49pm Cage:

A little late ... but best Beefheart for my buck is Mirror Man!
  Thu. 2/16/12 3:54pm still b/p:

Like sports fans painting themselves for a big game, squirrels like to be rockin' some color when they're going for a catapult riiiiiide!
  Thu. 2/16/12 3:54pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

my grandpappy used to eat beef tongue and headcheese sandwiches.
  Thu. 2/16/12 3:57pm Caryn:

@DCE: ew, not to my taste... But then again, who am I to talk. My grandma eats horseflies.
  Thu. 2/16/12 3:58pm Cage:

Horseflies, no thank you. But tacos lengua ... yes please.
  Thu. 2/16/12 4:00pm ERD:

Squirrelbait > Squirel Catapult

but it was close
  Thu. 2/16/12 4:02pm trrs:

squirrel bait looks a lot like bird feed and people garden food
  Thu. 2/16/12 4:03pm bruceleh:

This isn't good news right before the marathon:
Due to market conditions, xxx xxx has decided to reduce the firm’s global IT staff augmentation contractor rates by 10% effective March 5, 2012.
  Thu. 2/16/12 4:06pm trrs:

Enough to wipe out tv and fast-food $ ?
  Thu. 2/16/12 4:07pm juli:

...and this just in ....some guy named kennedy is running for office
  Thu. 2/16/12 4:08pm ERD:

Not this Squirrelbait! http://boingboing.net/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/squirrel-bait.jpg
  Thu. 2/16/12 4:08pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

shit! I work for xxx xxx Corp!
  Thu. 2/16/12 4:10pm Cecile:

ahhhh. missed Beefheart. If we're going to talk the Captain, one of my favorites is Shiny Beast (Bat Chain Puller) because it was the first one I owned.
  Thu. 2/16/12 4:11pm Cecile:

i would get let down by these "classic" records and artists that just didn't deliver for my tiny brain, but Beefheart delivered.
  Thu. 2/16/12 4:15pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I think I first got roped in by Ella Guru, the one mildly accessible "hit" from Trout Mask.
  Thu. 2/16/12 4:16pm Cage:

@DCE ... I always liked Moonlight on Vermont from Trout Mask ...
  Thu. 2/16/12 4:17pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

those slide guitars were pretty SICK!!
  Thu. 2/16/12 4:20pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

ERD, I love that photo. Classic mid-80s. Those guys look like they knew how to have fun.
  Thu. 2/16/12 4:21pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

and play jangly indie rock!
  Thu. 2/16/12 4:25pm nic:

  Thu. 2/16/12 4:32pm Carmichael:

I've been ripping through old vhs tapes that I made of musical guests on TV shows. Last night I found Beefheart on SNL singing Ashtray Heart. "Somebody's had too much to THINK!!"
  Thu. 2/16/12 4:33pm Cecile:

Nice, Carm!
I saw a bit or two from the Letterman show a while back.
  Thu. 2/16/12 4:37pm nic:

  Thu. 2/16/12 4:38pm northguineahills:

Always one of my favorite Xenakis pieces!
  Thu. 2/16/12 4:42pm bill:

great music to peel paint to
  Thu. 2/16/12 4:43pm Carmichael:

Yeah, it was strange. After the Captain's *clarinet solo*, the song just stopped. After a second or 2 of dead air, someone in the background exclaims, "shit ..." Someone finally decided to applaud.
  Thu. 2/16/12 4:46pm Fogg:

Great music to Passepartout.
  Thu. 2/16/12 4:48pm ?:

  Thu. 2/16/12 5:31pm Carmichael:

Plenty of people I have met this week are utilizing perfectly-tuned weirding modules.
  Thu. 2/16/12 5:39pm glenn:

gary carter died, mets and expos fans.
  Thu. 2/16/12 5:39pm nic:

  Thu. 2/16/12 5:41pm Looms:

Agreed, most amazing show today :)
  Thu. 2/16/12 5:47pm rache:

Thank you for a great show.
  Thu. 2/16/12 5:48pm Close Listener:

"Weirding module" is a reference from Frank Herbert's _Dune_.
  Thu. 2/16/12 5:48pm Carmichael:

This show is a spectacular failure, Fabio. Be proud!
  Thu. 2/16/12 5:49pm rache:

A wierding module is from the film adaption of Dune. It wasn't in the book, but it was in the Lynch film.
  Thu. 2/16/12 5:51pm Hacksaw:

synthesized bagpipes are sooo underused

  Thu. 2/16/12 5:56pm Matt from Springfield:

"Can you hear Clay now? Good!!"
Oh water night!
  Thu. 2/16/12 5:57pm Cecile:

Pekingnese look like hassocks. Friendly hassocks.
  Thu. 2/16/12 5:57pm Matt from Springfield:

@Hacksaw: How about guitar bagpipes? I'm into Big Country now since Joe McG played them.
  Thu. 2/16/12 5:58pm Hacksaw:

noooo.... not another show. more occupy? more shouting/chanting? more political discussion?
  Thu. 2/16/12 5:59pm Matt from Springfield:

We don't give a Flying FLOCK! Of seagulls!
  Thu. 2/16/12 5:59pm Hacksaw:

A don't have the ability to hate anything by Big Country. So I have to like it.
  Thu. 2/16/12 5:59pm Matt from Springfield:

@Hacksaw: Great! Good to know then! :)
