Bonjour Tony,
looking forward to some hiss today.

Greetings, La P!

And hullo everybody else -- one minute to go...
  Tue. 6/19/12 12:01pm holland oats:

oh dear
  Tue. 6/19/12 12:06pm Le Petomane:

French version of Krautrock? I always thought there 1 or 2 essential differences between the two.
For one, Krautrock's jump off point was may be Piper at the Gates of Dawn. But was'nt France's Soft Machine' Third.
Secondly Krautrock had many superstars in their scene, Amon Duul 2, Ash Ra, Can, Popul Vuh, Faust, Tangerine Dream etc.
French underground rock lived in the shadow of Magma, the true giants of the scene.
Avatar Tue. 6/19/12 12:07pm tonyc:

The sound man for this Wapassou has a little mishap shortly -- you can hear him cursing and the sound drops out for a bit.
  Tue. 6/19/12 12:09pm holland oats:

lemme just bring the guitar down a bit... OH MERD!!!!
Avatar Tue. 6/19/12 12:10pm tonyc:

@ Le Petomane: You're certainly right that krautrock is much better known than the French equivalent -- but it shouldn't be that way, as the French scene was just as impressive. Magma was just one of many flavors....
  Tue. 6/19/12 12:11pm Van in DC:

Well, this ought to be an experience. Hi there Mr. tonyc.
Avatar Tue. 6/19/12 12:11pm tonyc:

Hiya, Van!
  Tue. 6/19/12 12:13pm Le Petomane:

so French Rock made less impact world wide than British/German prog?
Avatar Tue. 6/19/12 12:14pm tonyc:

Much less -- though in the last 10 years or so it's gotten better known, I'd say.
  Tue. 6/19/12 12:15pm Van in DC:

Wait. live on French radio? Tony did you record this on a cassette or something?
Avatar Tue. 6/19/12 12:16pm tonyc:

@ Van: It is from a cassette, yes.
Avatar Tue. 6/19/12 12:18pm tonyc:

In fact, everything heard today is from cassette and is unreleased.
  Tue. 6/19/12 12:21pm Le Petomane:

suppose in the same way Tony, US prog is just as obscure as French's?
Avatar Tue. 6/19/12 12:22pm tonyc:

Maybe even more obscure!
  Tue. 6/19/12 12:25pm Le Petomane:

really loving this piece, has just about everything in it,
  Tue. 6/19/12 12:28pm Le Petomane:

ah Clearlight Symphony came to my mind a minute ago. Must be those cosmic keyboard keys!
  Tue. 6/19/12 12:34pm Le Petomane:

Avatar Tue. 6/19/12 12:36pm tonyc:

Glad you liked it!
  Tue. 6/19/12 12:37pm Van in DC:

Wow, like something straight out of "BladeRunner" :)
  Tue. 6/19/12 12:39pm Le Petomane:

Blade Runner? More like The Day the Earth Stood still!
Avatar Tue. 6/19/12 12:41pm tonyc:

Unfortunately, none of the tracks on this demo tape ever came out in any form -- as far as I know, anyhow.
Avatar Tue. 6/19/12 12:54pm tonyc:

The track titles are handwritten in a somewhat scribbly script -- so I may be misreading some of them (like the one on now)
  Tue. 6/19/12 12:56pm Beret:

Some great French artistes Albert Marcoeur,Richard Pinhas/Heldon,ZNR,Jac Berrocal,L.S.T.P.O. etc....etc...

  Tue. 6/19/12 12:59pm Van in DC:

"In the Distant" is how Google Translate renders "Dans les Lointains" - is that correct...?
  Tue. 6/19/12 1:01pm Doug S.:

Hey hey Tony!
I was working so intently on my show for 6pm that I forgot to turn you on. Thanks for turning me on!
  Tue. 6/19/12 1:02pm listener james from westwood:

digging this show most heavily on a crazy day. afternoon and good tuesday, all! been running back and forth between computer and hot water heater (upstairs neighbor's unit is leaking into my unit, so have to be quick w the shop vac!).
Avatar Tue. 6/19/12 1:03pm tonyc:

Hey there, Doug!

@ Van: More or less correct, yes -- maybe "In the Far Away Places" would be more colloquial.
Avatar Tue. 6/19/12 1:04pm tonyc:

@ Listener James; ACK!!! My sympathies....
Avatar Tue. 6/19/12 1:06pm tonyc:

None of these Demouron tracks have ever been released either....
  Tue. 6/19/12 1:07pm listener james from westwood:

thanks. very little water got into my actual apt., but i did get a call while out this morning that there was leakage to the unit below me. they entered, vacuumed out the water in the basin surrounding my heater (the overflow basins are all linked via pipes), but it had refilled quite quickly about an hour ago. fun fun.
Avatar Tue. 6/19/12 1:12pm tonyc:

When I lived in Brooklyn, my upstairs neighbor's heater was always dripping like crazy. There were big stains on that part of my wall -- plus some records and books got soaked until I wised up and moved everything out of that part of the room.
  Tue. 6/19/12 1:12pm Doug S.:

Good luck, LJFW! Water, water neverywhere.
  Tue. 6/19/12 1:16pm listener james from westwood:

yech, that's never fun to find out the hard way. i'm paranoid b/c a 2nd-story unit here had its water heater completely give way and flood 2 1st-story units. ceiling plaster collapse and everything, so 3 units total were waterlogged.
  Tue. 6/19/12 1:17pm listener james from westwood:

doug, it sounds like the flow has dwindled, so your neverywhere has come to fruition, thankfully. i don't have to run around putting everything up high or in plastic as i did ahead of hurricane irene.
  Tue. 6/19/12 1:17pm listener james from westwood:

(tho' i do still have the thumb drive of insurance photos of all my stuff just in case!)

  Tue. 6/19/12 1:40pm E.T.L. admirer:

Can anyone tell me about current works by Etron Fou members?
Avatar Tue. 6/19/12 1:43pm tonyc:

@ Le Petomane: Great albums! Have 'em all, except for the Les Variations one.
  Tue. 6/19/12 1:45pm Ricardo Montalban:

I've been listening from another dimension. Wonderfully hissy show, Tony!
Avatar Tue. 6/19/12 1:46pm tonyc:

@ E.F.L. admirer: Not too up on the very latest, having sort of lost track around 6 or 7 years ago. They're all still cooking away, though.
  Tue. 6/19/12 1:47pm Le Petomane:

Strange story Les Variations, started as Psychedelic, went on to in the early 70s to kind of Led Zep sound with Morrocan musical edges to the sound.

Then they disappeared until I discovered they had become religious and turned in Chassidic Sefardic rock band Raya Mehemna!

got to leave early tonight because its England V Ukraine in the Euros!
Old Blighty really needs my support, so I've dusted off the Union Jack, got out the old rattles, and

Avatar Tue. 6/19/12 1:47pm tonyc:

@ Ricardo M: Thanks, senor! Glad the show didn't make you throw a hissy-fit.

Good morning, Tony & listeners.
  Tue. 6/19/12 2:01pm Van in DC:

Hey Tony, is today's presentation a full 3 hrs?
Avatar Tue. 6/19/12 2:02pm tonyc:

Yep, it is. Two more EFL offshoots to go.
  Tue. 6/19/12 2:02pm northguineahills:

I'll be watching England-Ukraine while listening to the last 15 minutes of Tony.
  Tue. 6/19/12 2:04pm Le Petomane:

yeh game starts 2.45pm US time.
Avatar Tue. 6/19/12 2:04pm tonyc:

@ northguineahills: That's the spirit! Should go together well....
  Tue. 6/19/12 2:05pm Le Petomane:

actually France are playing also at the same time for anyone who wants to be feel Frank!
  Tue. 6/19/12 2:06pm Van in DC:

Okay, thanks...greatly enjoying the show today, much more than I actually honestly thought I would, but need to take a short break :)
Avatar Tue. 6/19/12 2:09pm tonyc:

Feeling over-hissed? Come back refreshed....
Avatar Tue. 6/19/12 2:11pm tonyc:

On that subject, do you -- oh listeners -- find the sound quality of these "Tape Hiss" shows more or less OK? Or does it get wearing? There's only so much de-hiss-ification I can do to pretty up the sound.
  Tue. 6/19/12 2:13pm northguineahills:

This hiss is fine. It's overtly hissacle.
Avatar Tue. 6/19/12 2:14pm tonyc:

And hiss-storical, I like to think.
Avatar Tue. 6/19/12 2:17pm tonyc:

Anybody else? I really would like to know. The compression involved in streaming intensifies the hiss, unfortunately.
Avatar Tue. 6/19/12 2:19pm tonyc:

ART MOULU = Jo Thirion: keyboards, vocals; Maurice Ott: vocals; Jean-Francois Welter: drums; Olivier Masson: saxes

Digging the Art Moulu.
Avatar Tue. 6/19/12 2:25pm tonyc:

They only have one release, which is also live in Italy, oddly -- but none of these tracks are on it.
  Tue. 6/19/12 2:27pm Van in DC:

Okay all refreshed.

Hiss? What hiss? :)
  Tue. 6/19/12 2:27pm Carmichael:

Since I'm listening on POS computer speakers at a low volume, I really don't notice the difference. I'll have to check out the archives on my mega system back at the fortified NORAD bunker when I get home.
  Tue. 6/19/12 2:28pm Ricardo Montalban:

I've never found the sound quality of the Hiss shows to be an hissue. They sound fine to me, but then I listen to it through some audio VST effects to offset the compression of internet audio. It's a bit hissy on headphones but it sounds less so on my monitors.
  Tue. 6/19/12 2:28pm Doug Schulkind:

Two more radio programs coming up LIVE here on the stream:

6 - 7PM Give the Drummer Some

Guest co-host tonight will be Ricardo De Lima, a Colombo-Venezuelan visual artist, hacker, DJ, & resident agitator at Spectacle in Boston. Live from Spectacle in Jamaica Plain, Mass, two hours of song-swapping and turntable leap-frogging.

Avatar Tue. 6/19/12 2:28pm tonyc:

Art Moulu, by the way, means ground-up art. They originally called themselves Art Moulu Tres Fin: Finely Ground Art.
  Tue. 6/19/12 2:29pm Van in DC:

@Carm - this isn't being archived I don't think...
Avatar Tue. 6/19/12 2:30pm tonyc:

Thanks for the hiss reports, all. Glad the sound quality is OK -- may actually sound worse to me, since I'm just on a laptop with crappy built-in speakers. And, no, like all Tape Hiss shows, this is not being archived.
  Tue. 6/19/12 2:30pm Van in DC:

Doug! GRRRRR...guess where I'm from? ;)
  Tue. 6/19/12 2:33pm Carmichael:

Van, I hear Texas is a nice place to be "from" ... :-)

No archives, eh? I'll just have to call in sick two weeks from today.
  Tue. 6/19/12 2:36pm Doug Schulkind:

I didn't say everyone from Texas is an arsenpheffer! You are quite the opposite (that makes you a Phesenarfer!)
  Tue. 6/19/12 2:37pm Doug S.:

Gotta go pick up the kiddenploofer from soccer camp. Great show, Tony.
Avatar Tue. 6/19/12 2:38pm tonyc:

Thanks, Doug! Remember to put her down again....
  Tue. 6/19/12 2:38pm Van in DC:

All's well, I was just kidding with you Doug. Catch you laters :)

FERDINAND ET LES PHILOSOPHES = Ferdinand Richard: six-string bass, vocals; Alain Rocher: guitars; Dominique Lentin: drums
  Tue. 6/19/12 2:41pm northguineahills:

I guess we can guess where someone might have been in late june, 1991.
Avatar Tue. 6/19/12 2:42pm tonyc:

Good guess, but no -- got these tapes from the nice Italian gents who organized this festival. I met 'em in Brooklyn!
Avatar Tue. 6/19/12 2:44pm tonyc:

They are/were in a fine Italian band called Sisma.
Avatar Tue. 6/19/12 2:59pm tonyc:

Will be running a few minutes over to get this last number in -- stick around if you can. Will be back next week with a regular freeform show. Thanks for listening, everybody!
  Tue. 6/19/12 3:00pm listener james from westwood:

enjoyed the show today, tony. for the record, any low-fi on the recordings so far in this series has been no prob with me. i grew up in the analog era and wrassled with on-air fmu static in the pre-stream times. i've got a wide definition of normal!
  Tue. 6/19/12 3:00pm Van in DC:

Thanks for the show Tony!
Avatar Tue. 6/19/12 3:01pm tonyc:

Thanks, James & Van! See ya, everybody! Stay tuned to the stream...
