Evening, folks.

hello hello again
  Sun. 4/15/12 9:13pm miss cheri:

hiya dave--as i recall the last time you were on,, you never answered my question,,,do you agree that mila k. is a god?? btw great to see you once again!!
Avatar Sun. 4/15/12 9:14pm Dave M:

Hi Andrew. Cheri: Sorry, still working on that one.
  Sun. 4/15/12 9:17pm Theologian:

Define "god".
  Sun. 4/15/12 9:46pm glenn:

define insane.
  Sun. 4/15/12 9:49pm Theologian:

@glenn: psst, ^^^^^^^ some things are better experienced phenomenologically, or phenomenillogically

these tracks span quite an array of vocals, dave!
Avatar Sun. 4/15/12 10:00pm Dave M:

Yeah, I guess. But all connected in some way...maybe.

howdy Dave ^_^ hi listeners ^_^ enjoying the sounds here in grand rapids michigan

Hey Dexter.
  Sun. 4/15/12 10:19pm George of Troy:

Another chance meeting with World of Echo . . . Most excellent. Hi Dave and fellow listeners!
  Sun. 4/15/12 10:22pm Marc:

Dave you're way cooler than Don Draper. #madmeh
  Sun. 4/15/12 10:22pm Marc:

now, where's my goddamn Hawkwind?
  Sun. 4/15/12 10:24pm triish:

Recordings that gestate in djs' bags. I bet that would make an interesting list.
Avatar Sun. 4/15/12 10:25pm Dave M:

Greetings, George. A surprise to me too. Martha needed a fill-in at the very last minute.
Avatar Sun. 4/15/12 10:26pm Dave M:

Marc, I have it here! I'll try to fit it into this set if I haven't lost you to Mad Men.
Avatar Sun. 4/15/12 10:26pm Dave M:

@triish: Not so sure about that. Sometimes they gestate for a reason.
Avatar Sun. 4/15/12 10:27pm Dave M:

Marc: Here it is, just for you.
  Sun. 4/15/12 10:27pm Marc:

No, Mad World of Echo trumps Le Draper any time...
  Sun. 4/15/12 10:28pm Marc:

Thank you thank you thank you thank you! Great record, great show!
Avatar Sun. 4/15/12 10:29pm Dave M:

@triish: Sometimes you never get around to playing the record because it sucks and you're unwilling to admit that.
Avatar Sun. 4/15/12 10:30pm Dave M:

@Marc: Was going to send you a photo of it earlier, but f***ing Facebook never seems to work right for me.
  Sun. 4/15/12 10:31pm G:

Diggin Dave. Draper = Drooper.
  Sun. 4/15/12 10:31pm triish:

Yet djs still carry them around. That's the interesting part, I think, quality aside.

I'd guess it's pretty common.
Avatar Sun. 4/15/12 10:33pm Dave M:

Hope springs eternal. You keep thinking, I want to play this record and I'll find a spot for it in a set someday. But You never do, because your heart's not in it.
  Sun. 4/15/12 10:35pm triish:

Looking at few old 'port' folders of my own - maybe not interesting. Maybe just 'curious'.
  Sun. 4/15/12 10:36pm Droll:

DaveM, Your rationale sounds close to admission of "guilty pleasure". Love enough to lug around, sensible enough not to air.
Avatar Sun. 4/15/12 10:37pm Dave M:

Yeah, maybe. But there's almost nothing I won't have the nerve to air at SOME time. Except maybe "Tarkus."
  Sun. 4/15/12 10:39pm Marc:

Speaking of guilty pleasures... I'll never feel guilty listening to Mo, no matter what she's playing.
  Sun. 4/15/12 10:41pm Droll:

Sigh... My gateway DJ to FMU was DJ Donna Dummer (Jason Forrest), and he once played Tarkus in the middle of a breakcore set. That's what set FMU hook for good. (I even loved your 9 minute DP jam on your other fill in a few days ago)
  Sun. 4/15/12 10:43pm George of Troy:

Dave, does that mean you *would* have the nerve to play "Love Beach"? Not that I'd want you to do that . . .
  Sun. 4/15/12 10:44pm Tom - In Gravesend Brooklyn:

Fanny is Australia guess that one lol
  Sun. 4/15/12 10:45pm Marc:

If Mo ever recorded an ELP song it might give me pause, however.
Avatar Sun. 4/15/12 10:53pm Dave M:

@Droll: Yeah, I used to talk to Jason (Donna Summer) about that. I guess he was too young to realize how "uncool" that stuff was. I was amazed at a Yes track he played one time, and he got angry. "Why does everyone put down Yes so much???!!!"
Avatar Sun. 4/15/12 10:54pm Dave M:

@Tom: Are you saying they were Australian, not English? I bet the word means the same thing there, though.
  Sun. 4/15/12 10:55pm miss cheri:

oh dave,,speaking of mila do you own any of her movies?? cause i do...
Avatar Sun. 4/15/12 10:55pm Dave M:

I was a big Yes fan in my day, but I have to admit there was a time you just couldn't play that stuff on the radio. I think the song was "America," which is actually great.
Avatar Sun. 4/15/12 10:56pm Dave M:

Nope, don't think I've ever seen her. Is she anything like Ellen Page?
  Sun. 4/15/12 10:58pm miss cheri:

dave who's ellen page?
  Sun. 4/15/12 10:59pm Droll:

I think Jason would have written "WHY DDOEES EVEERRRRYOOONEEEE PUUUUUUT DOWHN HYES!????!!!!!!!!" A few weeks ago ScottW played all four sides of Tales from Topographical Oceans simultaneously (I admit partial blame for seeding that idea). I guess he missed the memo.
  Sun. 4/15/12 11:00pm Entertainment Tonite:

I heard Mila and Ellen and Kate Winslet are forming a combination Bangles/ELP tribute band
Avatar Sun. 4/15/12 11:02pm Dave M:

I heard about Scott's "Tales" stunt. Brilliant, but unfortunately I haven't heard it yet.
Avatar Sun. 4/15/12 11:03pm Dave M:

I'd go to see that.
Avatar Sun. 4/15/12 11:04pm Dave M:

(I mean the Mila/Ellen/Kate band.)
  Sun. 4/15/12 11:05pm Entertainment Tonite:

The highlight is Kate stabbing the keyboard with a knife and simulating sex with it.
  Sun. 4/15/12 11:07pm miss cheri:

dave i have to split now,, but i'm enjoying your show
see you soon,,
  Sun. 4/15/12 11:08pm Entertainment Tonite:

That's during "Just Another Manic Solo"
Avatar Sun. 4/15/12 11:08pm Dave M:

Thanks. See ya, Cheri.
  Sun. 4/15/12 11:08pm Andrew Waterloo:

Rush would be my guilty pleasure. I always felt too guilty about liking Yes to really enjoy it.
  Sun. 4/15/12 11:09pm triish:

what's with all the guilt? It's music.
  Sun. 4/15/12 11:09pm Entertainment Tonite:

Other than that people wanted you to "take sides" in the great prog vs punk battle back in the day, what's to feel guilty about? Music is music.
  Sun. 4/15/12 11:09pm Marc:

OK, here's my drop-dead, unbelievably weird piece of Yes - not really trivia, but a strange fact.

If you put "Tales From Topographic Oceans" into an anagram finder, you get: SOFT ORCHESTRAL, EGOMANIAC POP (I kid you not!)
  Sun. 4/15/12 11:10pm miss cheri:

but before i go,, i'm sorry about babbling about mila kunis dave night!!
  Sun. 4/15/12 11:10pm Marc:

Avatar Sun. 4/15/12 11:11pm Dave M:

That's OK, Cheri, I'm used to it.

@ET: Yeah, people were really taking sides at one point. It was dangerous to be a fan of certain bands in certain crowds.
Avatar Sun. 4/15/12 11:12pm Dave M:

@Marc: Amazing!
  Sun. 4/15/12 11:13pm Entertainment Tonite:

Yeah, I was there too, Dave. Seeing the upsides and downsides of any kind of music is what made me a bad sidetaker, and eventually an FMU listener...
  Sun. 4/15/12 11:13pm jeff:

  Sun. 4/15/12 11:14pm Marc:

I know, it's just one of those weird things that make your blood tingle.

John Cage, back when I worked for him, had "invented" this system called "Mesostics" wherein you could find a "secret" phrase hiding in plain sight using chance operations against a chosen text. Similarly weird things popped up then.
  Sun. 4/15/12 11:16pm Marc:

Dave, if you "anagramize" your name, you get... LED MAD VAN.

just sayin'
  Sun. 4/15/12 11:22pm Robert Plant:

@Marc: KEWL!
  Sun. 4/15/12 11:22pm Droll:

Prog rock, despite being rock's perennial whipping boy, is one of rock's most durable genres. There are still lots of new bands, albums, and the old fans don't die, they just stop buying re-mastered box sets.
Avatar Sun. 4/15/12 11:22pm Dave M:

@Marc: Good to know.
  Sun. 4/15/12 11:29pm Marc:

Kevin Ayers, Joy of a Toy = JOY OF AN OKAY SEVERITY
  Sun. 4/15/12 11:35pm G:

@Droll: If the anti-proggers weren't so **defensive** about prog, they wouldn't have made such a point about keeping Yes out of the RnR HoF. Dave Marsh (one of the main nomination determiners) ranges strictly from punk to Bruce S., nothing flashier than that. -- That's the Dave Marsh who called Queen the first genuinely fascist rock band. So he's still fighting the good anti-prog fight even today, 35 years later.
  Sun. 4/15/12 11:44pm Andrew Waterloo:

The anti-prog thing seems very populist. Then again, most mainstream rock praise seems very populist.
  Sun. 4/15/12 11:45pm Droll:

G, Good point -- Anti-prog rhetoric is often so out of proportion to the "crime" of playing too many notes that we must assume the haters have something to hide: a secret fetishistic love for 9 minute songs with 7/8 time signatures, Mellotron, and flute solos.
  Sun. 4/15/12 11:47pm Marc:

I love 7/8 and 9-minute songs. But flute solos?

That's where I draw the line, goddammit.
  Sun. 4/15/12 11:48pm triish:

Nice stochastic Sunday sorta mood to your show in my ears, tonight, Dave.
Maybe. I don't know.
Avatar Sun. 4/15/12 11:48pm Dave M:

I love all of those things.
  Sun. 4/15/12 11:49pm Andrew Waterloo:

Or the esoteric nature of music that needs to be intellectualized to be fully appreciated.
  Sun. 4/15/12 11:49pm 12539:

I hope this Mingus piece is 9 minutes long.
  Sun. 4/15/12 11:50pm G:

I think it was really politics/ideology: In other words, if punk rebelled against social injustice and was somehow left of center or anarchistic, then the music it was rebelling against must be at least crypto-fascist. Ironic, given the gentle newagey lyrics of Yes, and the lack of any rightwingness in prog music. But I suppose if you are geared up and bound and determined to fight, you are going to create an us-vs.-them template regardless of the actual facts.

There's a lot of good stuff in both punk and prog (and a lot of schlock in both, too). Why the manicheanism?
Avatar Sun. 4/15/12 11:54pm Dave M:

Mingus piece = 9:59.
  Sun. 4/15/12 11:55pm Droll:

. o O (It's interesting that even here with open-minded self-selecting WFMU listeners, prog still carries such enormous baggage. I don't think I could name another music genre which would split the comments board like that)
  Sun. 4/15/12 11:59pm Andrew Waterloo:

@G, There is another ideal where rock is more appropriately a more youthful, urban, and reckless genre that is more suited for the dance hall. There is a feeling that prog and many of the bigger classic rock bands betray that.
  Fri. 4/20/12 12:52pm Listener Bob (2907):

Listening on the archives. It's good to hear you back on the air again.
