Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/1/12 12:18pm tonyc:

Northguineahills: Forget Acugenics. It's easier just to pop a pill from Sandoz.

Bob Dorough in the DNA
  Tue. 5/1/12 12:23pm Doug S.:

Happy Happy Tony Joy!

i wonder if they also covered the ocd lady macbeth and the depressed/suicidal ophelia in their shakespeare series.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/1/12 12:27pm tonyc:

Oops! I meant "aCugenics" -- damn my handwriting!

Listener James: They did!!
  Tue. 5/1/12 12:32pm Ricardo Montalban:

Geez! The title of that Sandoz Pharma album implies that there are at least three volumes of that series!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/1/12 12:33pm tonyc:

Yep -- Sandoz provided lots of employment for third-rate Shakespearean actors.
  Tue. 5/1/12 12:36pm northguineahills:

Actually reading up on DNA right now.

i have a friend who works at roche, home of valium. i'm now picturing her in a production of "richard iii" in which large dancing valiums come out to comfort richard the anxiety-plagued night before bosworth field.

That Sandoz LP is actually pushing a particular drug -- something called Serentil.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/1/12 12:47pm tonyc:

Tiger's keyboard player -- at least on this first LP -- is Matching Mole's Dave McCrae.
  Tue. 5/1/12 12:48pm listener james from westwood:

looks like an anti-schizophrenia drug. pulled due to heart side effects, among others. i think mac has at least one flexidisc in his collection from a drug maker that they no doubt showered on doctors of its day to get them to prescribe.
  Tue. 5/1/12 12:48pm BSI:

HA, "serentil" ... Love the etymology of drug tradenames.
  Tue. 5/1/12 12:49pm listener james from westwood:

i used to work in a drugstore; i and the other counter-folks would fight over the free post-it notes the drug reps would dump on the pharmacists.

Tyger, Tyger: Blake poetry set to "mellow" '70s folk-y pschy-y stuff. Hey, The Doors got their name from Blake, after all...and there was that band The Blake Babies...

In case you're wondering: this Village of Savoonga LP comes equipped with prerecorded crackle.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/1/12 1:00pm tonyc:

B.C. Gilbert & G. Lewis = Bruce Gilbert & Graham Lewis of Wire fame.

Ah, good old Blake....
he was that zombie ship's captain in Carpenter's film THE FOG, no?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/1/12 1:08pm tonyc:

Dunno -- but the idea makes me want to see that film.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/1/12 1:12pm tonyc:

Have Gilbert & Lewis put you in a trance yet? The Acugenics lesson will now commence.
  Tue. 5/1/12 1:12pm Ricardo Montalban:

How many records are there out there put out by pharmaceutical companies?
I only know of that creepy one that has babies crying on it and one I found for a feline distemper vaccine with Marlin Perkins on it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/1/12 1:15pm tonyc:

Maybe what Lear really needed was a shot of feline distemper vaccine.
  Tue. 5/1/12 1:16pm BSI:

I've actually got a decent collection of pharmaceutical LPs scored from thrift-shops, etc. The CIBA drug company released a ton of 'em. My favorites are re; the treatment of excema and other fun topics.
  Tue. 5/1/12 1:16pm BSI:

There's also a great one that I keep seeing additional copies of: all different heart murmur sounds. Called AUSCULTATION OF THE HEART or some such. Very great sample-meat in that one.
  Tue. 5/1/12 1:18pm Ricardo Montalban:

BSI: I've got that Auscultation album! It's great! Also, the canine heart sounds record is really good too.
  Tue. 5/1/12 1:21pm Ricardo Montalban:

The creepiest is that A Child's Cry, a Clue to Diagnosis: http://waxidermy.com/a-childs-cry-a-clue-to-diagnosis/
There's a copy in KBOO's library that is hilariously annotated, with many pictures of sick children in the gatefold renamed after long-gone program titles or radio hosts.
  Tue. 5/1/12 1:23pm BSI:

I recently scored a 10-volume box set of LPs of Dave Elman lectures on "medical hypnosis" including such treasures as "how to achieve somnambulism" and using hypnotism to cure "frigidity" ... great stuff. There's a few thrift stores around here that are great for this kind of thing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/1/12 1:26pm tonyc:

How about frigidity in cats? Is there a hypno-cure for that?
  Tue. 5/1/12 1:27pm GRATEFULBLAC:

Your pronouciation sounds like 'dull shiktza' - I guess for those in the know a good response to frank Zappa'S Jewish Princess!

Great to be listening to you tonyc - the best show on the planet!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/1/12 1:32pm tonyc:

Thanks, GRATEFULBLAC -- I'm blushing.
  Tue. 5/1/12 1:34pm GRATEFULBLAC:

what's the name of the singer of FIBONACCIS - she sounds like Sandra Bernhard
  Tue. 5/1/12 1:35pm Ricardo Montalban:

Most of the really cool, great weird thrift store records were picked clean by hipsters years ago and now you have to pay 20 bucks for that "How to Buy Meat" LP in some hipster boutique store.
I have had SOME luck finding some great records in out-of-the-way thrift stores, but man, it's really scraping the bottom of the barrel.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/1/12 1:36pm tonyc:

Magie Song was the Fibonaccis vocalist.
  Tue. 5/1/12 1:36pm conrad:

Maggie Song was the appropriate name of the Fib's singer. Last I heard she's doing acupunture/oriental healer kinda thing, still in L.A.

And we're back to Acugeneics again...
  Tue. 5/1/12 1:39pm Carmichael:

This muzak scat singing stuff is fascinating and odd. I really enjoy the Hi-Lo's when it comes to that style.
  Tue. 5/1/12 1:39pm Snortley:

I like Clay Pigeon's edit of "Close to You."

Why do birds fall out of the sky?
Because they're dead.
  Tue. 5/1/12 1:39pm GRATEFULBLAC:

Suppose its a different Renaissance to the British Folk rock band of ex Yardbirds fame?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/1/12 1:40pm tonyc:

Gawd! These songs were just everywhere during my early childhood! Agony+Pain+Entertainment=Agupainment
  Tue. 5/1/12 1:42pm Ricardo Montalban:

Is this Jerry Weaver record one of those vanity records like he'd probably sell at his Holiday Inn lounge gig?
Does it have a seascape photo on the cover?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/1/12 1:43pm tonyc:

No seascape photo -- but yes, it is a vanity press. Has a nice drawing of him on the cover.
  Tue. 5/1/12 1:44pm Carmichael:

Friggin' Rod McKuen Junior, eh Fraser?
  Tue. 5/1/12 1:45pm GRATEFULBLAC:

like Carmichael - I am also into that cocktail muzak style, especially on Kevin Ayers early albums - Clarietta rag etc?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/1/12 1:46pm tonyc:

This Fraser thing is actually a found recording -- a real audio letter -- set to music.
  Tue. 5/1/12 1:53pm ?:

I'm going to let Tony Coulter be my friend.

Heya, Charlie!! Nice to have you here, disguised or not....
  Tue. 5/1/12 1:57pm charlie:

Happily tuned in just in time to be born again, although I'm sorry I missed the Sandoz/Lear record (will have to listen on archive).
  Tue. 5/1/12 1:59pm Carmichael:

Crosby, Stills and Jesus.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/1/12 2:00pm tonyc:

Charlie: I'll give you the short version: If only Sandoz had been around in Shakespeare's time, the Mad King could have been cured with Serentil -- if he didn't die of drug-induced heart damage first, that is.
  Tue. 5/1/12 2:02pm Van in DC:

I just love the WFMU archives. :)
  Tue. 5/1/12 2:04pm Van in DC:

I've been working away, listening in. Just noticed the Scott Fraser last set. Anyone know if any relation to Elizabeth? (Cocteau Twins, This Mortal Coil)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/1/12 2:06pm tonyc:

Scott Fraser was/is from Washington (state) -- so probably not.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/1/12 2:07pm tonyc:

More Scott Fraser coming up next, BTW.
  Tue. 5/1/12 2:07pm charlie:

Hi Van!
Thanks, Tony, for the recap! Big pharma saves the world from madness, the need for art, etc.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/1/12 2:14pm tonyc:

By the way, can't resist mentioning that 80% of the LPs heard today cost me a dollar or less.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/1/12 2:15pm tonyc:

I have an amazing record called Madness in Opera. It features famous arias of characters in the process of going mad. It was released be Lederle Laboratories to promote a new anti-psychotic drug.

By the way, I'll be back next week with another installment of "Tape Hiss" -- this time featuring downtown improv/late-No Wave stuff from the mid-'80s ... demos and a complete concert.
  Tue. 5/1/12 2:40pm Ricardo Montalban:

YAY, Hiss!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/1/12 2:40pm tonyc:

GRATEFULBLAC: Last of the '70s, yes. Used to avoid their last few '70s album, but all have a few decent or better tracks, I think.

Pretty Things -- pretty thing indeed.

Always thought their career ended effectively with Parachute - somehow they lost it after that?
Avatar    Tue. 5/1/12 2:42pm Doug S.:

That record was the inspiration for my 2005 marathon premium Loony Tunes—songs about insanity. My marathon premium this year is a 2-CD sequel. Crazy indeed!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/1/12 2:44pm tonyc:

GRATEFULBLAC: They did sort of lose it -- but there are still flashes of inspiration on the post-Parachute LPs.
  Tue. 5/1/12 2:46pm GRATEFULBLAC:

joey's in a dream!
  Tue. 5/1/12 2:47pm Van in DC:

Heya Doug! Yeah I had downloaded your Loony Tunes premium recently. Had my iPod set to shuffle last week and suddenly an odd song came on called "There are Drums in my Typewriter". Had to laugh :)
