Hullo dere. The Nachum Segal fill-in I never got to do begins in 3 minutes.

This is going to be fun.....

looking forward to some music from the holy land!

Avatar Tue. 7/10/12 12:07pm tonyc:

Acch! Higher-ups have been alerted. (Thanks Holland Oats.)
  Tue. 7/10/12 12:07pm NO NAMES:

Don't understand the dual name, in English they call themselves No Names, but the English translation of the name Ksat Acheret is 'a little different'. not 'no names'?
Avatar Tue. 7/10/12 12:08pm tonyc:

Don't pretend to understand myself! Info is from Rate Your Music.
  Tue. 7/10/12 12:08pm Menachem Montalbanowitz:

Whew! Got on the wrong playlist and had to take the stairs!
Mazel tov, Tony!
  Tue. 7/10/12 12:10pm kat330:

Hi, Tony! Can't stay at the keyboard, but thought you should know the front page of FMU links to John Allen's playlist where it says to you.
Avatar Tue. 7/10/12 12:10pm tonyc:

The divine Liz B has fixed the playlist link. Thanks, Liz.
  Tue. 7/10/12 12:10pm NO NAMES:

Danny Ben-Israel's Bullshit 3 1/4 is surely the wildest album in all Israeli pop music!
Avatar Tue. 7/10/12 12:12pm tonyc:

One of them, fer sure. Wait for Amnon Raviv's "Mirror" later in the show, though.
  Tue. 7/10/12 12:12pm NO NAMES:

is it the same Churchill's who mutated into Jericho and recorded heavy rock album in London in the early 70s?
Avatar Tue. 7/10/12 12:14pm tonyc:

Yep -- the same.
  Tue. 7/10/12 12:14pm Van in DC:

Hi Tony and everyone
Avatar Tue. 7/10/12 12:15pm tonyc:

Hey there, Van!
Avatar Tue. 7/10/12 12:21pm tonyc:

The Churchill's are the backing band on this Oshik Levy album.
  Tue. 7/10/12 12:25pm Menachem Montalbanowitz:

An all-Israeli show? In true Portland fashion, I will start to angrily demand an all-Palestinian followup show, only will choke to death on some loose-leaf tea and kombucha..
  Tue. 7/10/12 12:28pm NO NAMES:

Surely Menachem you mean a politically correct multi faith show of Christian, Muslim and Jewish music with bands like Bustan Abraham etc?
  Tue. 7/10/12 12:33pm NO NAMES:

Israeli experimental music is bit of a revelation to me, as I always found their psyche and prog to be very melodic, as though the Beatles and Barclay James Harvest are their favourite influences?
Avatar Tue. 7/10/12 12:33pm tonyc:

I would do a three-hour Palestinian psych, prog, and experimental music show if such a thing were possible. I figgers these musicians have little or nothing to do with the political situation over there.
Avatar Tue. 7/10/12 12:34pm tonyc:

@ No Names: Know what you mean. Fusion seems to be a big influence too.
  Tue. 7/10/12 12:35pm Menachem Montalbanowitz:

I was surprised to learn that there is a really big Noise Music scene in Israel right now.
  Tue. 7/10/12 12:37pm conrad:

I eagerly await Uri Geller's "Come On Love"!
Avatar Tue. 7/10/12 12:38pm tonyc:

Ha! I do have a Uri Geller LP. Didn't make the cut, though.
  Tue. 7/10/12 12:38pm NO NAMES:

Hey Conrad,
How about all those punk versions of Hava Negila!
  Tue. 7/10/12 12:42pm conrad:

Oh yeah, Dick Dale also did a killer "Hava."
  Tue. 7/10/12 12:43pm Menachem Montalbanowitz:

It would be funny if your Uri Geller record was warped.
Avatar Tue. 7/10/12 12:44pm tonyc:

Like a bent spoon, you mean? Ho!
  Tue. 7/10/12 12:45pm Menachem Montalbanowitz:

Yeah, or from storing near a Salvador Dali LP
Avatar Tue. 7/10/12 12:47pm tonyc:

Don't have any Salvador Dali LPs -- except for the Jackie Gleason one.
  Tue. 7/10/12 12:48pm conrad:

Oh, if only there really was such a thing as a Salvador Dali album!
I bought a Dali-esque clock for our house that looks like it's melting. Wifey does not like it.
Avatar Tue. 7/10/12 12:54pm tonyc:

This Shlomo Gronich may sound like a crappy mp3, but is actually a horribly mastered CD.
  Tue. 7/10/12 12:57pm Menachem Montalbanowitz:

I briefly left the room and came back to what I thought was Harry Nilsson
  Tue. 7/10/12 12:58pm listener james from westwood:

i date from the hold-the-antenna-at-this-angle-to-get-the-station era. i've got a wiiiiiiide definition of crappy sound. :)
Avatar Tue. 7/10/12 12:59pm tonyc:

@ Menachem Montalbanowitz: No -- it was Shlomo Nilsson.
Avatar Tue. 7/10/12 1:01pm tonyc:

@ Listener James: I hear ya. I'm just pissed they did such a poor mastering job, as it's one of the very best Israeli albums I know of.
Avatar Tue. 7/10/12 1:03pm tonyc:

Coming up next: Amnon Raviv's "Mirror" -- probably the most unique Israeli album I've heard.
  Tue. 7/10/12 1:12pm northguineahills:

I really dig this Amnon Raviv.
Avatar Tue. 7/10/12 1:13pm tonyc:

Igor Krutogolov, on now, is the leader of the band Kruzenshtern & Parohod, who have a bunch of avant-klezmer-ish CDs out.
  Tue. 7/10/12 1:13pm Menachem Montalbanowitz:

@listener james: I find that coming from that era has made my (maybe yours too) into a noise reducer, bad signal descrambler. I think we're more tolerant of poor sound than these poor kids who grew up on digital media.
Avatar Tue. 7/10/12 1:14pm tonyc:

@ Northguineahills: Same here -- I think it's great. Amnon Raviv also has a second record I've never heard. These days he's a professional clown!
  Tue. 7/10/12 1:15pm Menachem Montalbanowitz:

Having grown up at the foot of a mountain that effectively blocked TV and FM signals, I can not only descramble the worst looking picture but can also filter static, fuzz and distortion with my brain.
  Tue. 7/10/12 1:18pm conrad:

here ya go Tony:


Only $34,000!
  Tue. 7/10/12 1:19pm Van in DC:

WFMU the film is only $9 short of their $67k challenge goal :)
Avatar Tue. 7/10/12 1:21pm tonyc:

@ Conrad: What a steal! (Stealing from the buyer, I mean.) I do see pics of albums I'm playing today, though.
  Tue. 7/10/12 1:22pm listener james from westwood:

Not no more it ain't. :)
  Tue. 7/10/12 1:23pm Van in DC:

JAAAAAAAAMES! Whoo! I saw that :)
Avatar Tue. 7/10/12 1:23pm tonyc:

Thanks, James!!!!
  Tue. 7/10/12 1:24pm listener james from westwood:

i think we need a kickstarter for tony to get that album!1
yeah, i saw it was about $264 out via twitter, so i pledged, then saw it was like $9 away and upped it.
  Tue. 7/10/12 1:25pm northguineahills:

Too bad Yair from Tel Aviv isn't here....
  Tue. 7/10/12 1:26pm listener james from westwood:

holy crap, the total jumped by like $3k in the time since my last post. it now reads $70k. thanks to all who donated!!
  Tue. 7/10/12 1:26pm Van in DC:

That even $67,000 sure looked pretty. Of course, the even $70,000 it just jumped up to is WOW! Someone JUST put in $3k more!
Avatar Tue. 7/10/12 1:29pm tonyc:

Now they'll have enough money to cover the Old Codger's whole history.
Avatar Tue. 7/10/12 1:30pm tonyc:

Surprisingly, Raviv Gazit -- on now -- started out his music career writing pop songs.
  Tue. 7/10/12 1:32pm Van in DC:

The current National Geographic has a short write up on Tuva, and (very) briefly mentions their throat singing. Read it today in my doctor's office, then someone tweeted a link to it a few minutes ago...

Avatar Tue. 7/10/12 1:34pm tonyc:

Oh, I thought you were going to say they had an article on the Old Codger's career. He is sort of a throat singer -- sounds pretty phlegmy anyhow.
  Tue. 7/10/12 1:35pm Van in DC:

You mean Ken...?

The WFMU movie just jumped another $10k to $80k!
  Tue. 7/10/12 1:36pm listener james from westwood:

i imagine there are collyer-bros.-style piles of nat'l geographics in the codger compound.
Avatar Tue. 7/10/12 1:37pm tonyc:

@ Van in DC: No, not Ken! The Old Codger: www.flickr.com...
  Tue. 7/10/12 1:38pm listener james from westwood:

67K + 13K = 80K. maybe they had to drop in the challenge grant $$$ in 2 pledges.
Avatar Tue. 7/10/12 1:39pm tonyc:

Ken is the young codger. The old codger is at least 120.
  Tue. 7/10/12 1:40pm Van in DC:

Huh. Who knew? :)

@LJFW - ya, that is what I was thinking too...
  Tue. 7/10/12 1:41pm NO NAMES:

Is the orange season over or do you still plan on playing that album and Behind the sounds, one of my favourite Shlomo Gronich/Mathi Caspi albums?
Avatar Tue. 7/10/12 1:43pm tonyc:

Don't have "Behind the Sounds" -- wish I did! I'm not going to play any Tamouz, but will play something from a solo album by one of the members, Ariel Zilber.
  Tue. 7/10/12 1:44pm NO NAMES:

that Tamouz album is considered in Israel as the finest prog album ever produced there!
Avatar Tue. 7/10/12 1:46pm tonyc:

I picked it up recently -- but didn't like it too much on first listen. Mebbe I'll warm up to it...
  Tue. 7/10/12 1:48pm NO NAMES:

yes, I understand, it has a little of Supertramp/mid period Genesis sound about it that on first listen appears lightweight, but prolonged hearing might reveal a little more than that.
Avatar Tue. 7/10/12 1:53pm tonyc:

I'll give it another chance for sure!
  Tue. 7/10/12 1:53pm Carmichael:

Ach du Lieber! What a concept, Tony. I'm sitting in a 3-day vendor presentation, so no audio for me. I'll have to research the playlist this weekend.
Avatar Tue. 7/10/12 1:55pm tonyc:

It'll be there waiting for you. (Greetings, Carmichael!)
Avatar Tue. 7/10/12 1:55pm tonyc:

Here's a fun vid of Intensive Care Unit: www.youtube.com...
  Tue. 7/10/12 1:57pm NO NAMES:

Has anyone out there got a recording of the 1992 Klezmatics John Peel session, which I heard but did not reocrd. It was amazing like Klezmer done as space rock, like Shlomo Carlebach mixed with Hawkwind!
  Tue. 7/10/12 1:58pm Van in DC:

That video - Not one of my languages :)
Avatar Tue. 7/10/12 2:00pm tonyc:

The music kicks in after a brief spoken intro. T'ain't one of my languages neither.
  Tue. 7/10/12 2:02pm Van in DC:

Too many...zombies? :)
Avatar Tue. 7/10/12 2:02pm tonyc:

@ No Names: Pas moi.
Avatar Tue. 7/10/12 2:04pm tonyc:

@ Van in DC: Sounds reasonable to me....
Avatar Tue. 7/10/12 2:05pm tonyc:

Though, on the other hand, there can never be enough zombies...

Jericho Jones = The Churchill's
  Tue. 7/10/12 2:09pm listener james from westwood:

that would be good news to machete manufacturers.
  Tue. 7/10/12 2:11pm NO NAMES:

Shlomo Gronich - Neto Live

Sephardic Music
- Gabriel - Finger Work (Prog guitar with eastern themes)

Avatar Tue. 7/10/12 2:13pm tonyc:

I've been looking for that Yisrael Dagan thing.
  Tue. 7/10/12 2:13pm dane:

heya Tony, damn got here late again
thanks for that ICU video. how do you find that stuff? do you read the Hebrew?
Avatar Tue. 7/10/12 2:14pm tonyc:

Hey Dane! Nope, Hebrew is Greek to me. (And Greek is Hebrew to me, I guess.)
Avatar Tue. 7/10/12 2:15pm tonyc:

Found their Hebrew name online is all....
Avatar Tue. 7/10/12 2:21pm tonyc:

Doesn't this sound kinda like Os Mutantes?
Avatar Tue. 7/10/12 2:23pm tonyc:

Talk about yer fuzz....
Avatar Tue. 7/10/12 2:27pm tonyc:

Big thanks to Joe Copolovich for helping me track down a bunch of things used on today's show.
Avatar Tue. 7/10/12 2:36pm tonyc:

Coming up following this set, something non-Israeli: the radio premiere of a 13-minute just (about-to-be) released early '80s Rascal Reporters track.
  Tue. 7/10/12 2:41pm dane:

wow that youtube channel has loads of cool stuff
I need to check out after your show. like Chromosome, got anything by them?
  Tue. 7/10/12 2:43pm Muffin'Man:

  Tue. 7/10/12 2:43pm Van in DC:

All of that was totally alien to me. Always edutaining, this GTDR stream :)
Avatar Tue. 7/10/12 2:44pm tonyc:

Stick around for the Rascal Reporters!!!!
Avatar Tue. 7/10/12 2:45pm tonyc:

@ Dane: Nope, I have no Chromosomes. I am a genetic puzzle....
  Tue. 7/10/12 2:45pm listener james from westwood:

glad this is a regular, non–tape hiss show so i can hear it again. lovely israeli block!
Avatar Tue. 7/10/12 2:46pm tonyc:

Thanks, James! Wish I could archive the Tape Hiss shows, but it can not be.
  Tue. 7/10/12 2:47pm NO NAMES:

anything interesting on the next tape hiss show, Tony?
Avatar Tue. 7/10/12 2:49pm tonyc:

Hope so! Haven't figured out yet what it'll be.
  Tue. 7/10/12 2:52pm Van in DC:

For a minute there I thought some ad in another browser tab auto-started on me :)
  Tue. 7/10/12 2:53pm NO NAMES:

Does any one know what happened to a loner folk reissue label/internet asian site called Big Pink records?
  Tue. 7/10/12 2:54pm listener james from westwood:

no prob; it makes hearing the hiss shows all the more special. hell, they're not even floating away from the planet like a terrestrial broadcast does. blink your ears and you'll miss 'em.
  Tue. 7/10/12 2:56pm NO NAMES:

great show, one of a kind, thanks.

I can imagine you doing same thing for Australian music, Swedish Prog, Chilean/Argentinian music.
Avatar Tue. 7/10/12 2:57pm tonyc:

Thanks, No Names! Theoretically, I'd like to do one for every country.
  Tue. 7/10/12 2:58pm Van in DC:

Have a great rest of week - thanks Tony!
Avatar Tue. 7/10/12 2:58pm tonyc:
