Ha (Ho) Hissman!
Looking forward to another fun filled and fruity show for all the tape heads out there!

ah, Michelle Shocked, where are you now?
  Tue. 7/17/12 12:20pm MrFab:

Wow, rare Lothar & the Hand People, cool! Hope there's plenty of theremin. I may be the only person in the world happy for that, but thanks in advance Tony.
  Tue. 7/17/12 12:20pm northguineahills:

@Lonesome Cowboy Bill: Before I flipped on the playlist, I also thought it was Linda Perhacs.

Hey there, MrFab & northguineahills!
  Tue. 7/17/12 12:22pm Lonesome Cowboy Bill:

Always preferred Joni Mitchell's early albums before she went all Jazzy towards the end of the 70s!
  Tue. 7/17/12 12:23pm Lonesome Cowboy Bill:

now entered Minstel in the Gallery!
Avatar Tue. 7/17/12 12:24pm tonyc:

RE Joni Mitchell: I agree -- her first two are my favorites.
  Tue. 7/17/12 12:26pm Lonesome Cowboy Bill:

who are Shepherd? US or UK?
very Jethro Tull on that first track!
  Tue. 7/17/12 12:27pm northguineahills:

Shepard (US) from Brooklyn if I'm not mistaken.
Avatar Tue. 7/17/12 12:28pm tonyc:

Shepherd hailed from Brooklyn.
Avatar Tue. 7/17/12 12:29pm tonyc:

They never released anything....
  Tue. 7/17/12 12:30pm Lonesome Cowboy Bill:

you know they remind me of Dr Strangely Strange!
  Tue. 7/17/12 12:31pm northguineahills:

can't spell today, or any others.
  Tue. 7/17/12 12:36pm Lonesome Cowboy Bill:

Just watched the Vietnam Documentary - Ten Thousand Day War, and I believe this recording has something to do with the release of US prisoners by the NVA

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: Due to necessary web maintenance (switching servers) the playlist page for today's show will become inoperative shortly, for up to an hour. The audio stream will continue uninterrupted -- so please keep on listening!
  Tue. 7/17/12 12:38pm Kenzo:

We're soon going to have to put away the playlists and comments for a little while today, while we do a major website upgrade.

Once the site goes down, it will hopefully come back up after half an hour or so. Keep listening on the streams until then!
  Tue. 7/17/12 12:38pm Van in DC:

*sneaking in the back* Hi Tony!

You mean I should get all my remarks in now?

Hi Van! As just announced, the playlist is about to vanish temporarily -- the stream will live on, though!

Yeah, got here just in time to be kicked out lol :)

Major Tom?
  Tue. 7/17/12 1:05pm BSI:

...made it! What's this about a site apocalypse? Is this some kind of Mayan paranoia trip, man?
Avatar Tue. 7/17/12 1:07pm tonyc:

Hey BSI! There was a station server switch mid-show. I think everything is now up and running again. Or maybe it's just the two of us -- perhaps everyone else has been vaporized.
  Tue. 7/17/12 1:08pm BSI:

aah, the Rapture. Beautiful. That means I can go free-car shopping after the show...

Welcome back, my friends, to the show that never ends.
  Tue. 7/17/12 1:18pm Van in DC:

I took the "half hour" estimate quite literally :)
  Tue. 7/17/12 1:30pm Lonesome Cowboy Bill:

Hi Tony,
had my supper during the playlist interval!
  Tue. 7/17/12 1:31pm northguineahills:

Someone should do a show w/ just bands named Cloud, or w/ Cloud in the name.
  Tue. 7/17/12 1:32pm Lonesome Cowboy Bill:

that many? Northguineahills
Avatar Tue. 7/17/12 1:33pm tonyc:

Including this one, I can think of four -- tho the other three ore called "Clouds."
  Tue. 7/17/12 1:34pm maxx:

Hi Tony, Thank you for playing my old 70s band Cloud it's been fun to hear it after all these years - God Bless you - talk to you soon!
  Tue. 7/17/12 1:34pm Lonesome Cowboy Bill:

got that Graham Nash vibe of CSN!
  Tue. 7/17/12 1:34pm maxx:

Hi Tony, Thank you for playing my old 70s band Cloud it's been fun to hear it after all these years God Bless you - talk to you soon!
  Tue. 7/17/12 1:35pm maestroso:

I just joined for the beginning of the Cloud set...
Where was this band from and was anyone notable in it? It's some pretty great prog.
Avatar Tue. 7/17/12 1:36pm tonyc:

Hi maxx -- glad you're listening! It's great stuff. Apologies for the distracting mid-show station maintenance.
  Tue. 7/17/12 1:36pm BSI:

We've got a FULLY RAD drone act in the DC area called TAG CLOUD, which I say counts as a candidate, NGH...
  Tue. 7/17/12 1:36pm northguineahills:

Outside of Cloud, Clouds(multiples), there is also Clouddead. That could fill 3 hours.
  Tue. 7/17/12 1:36pm maxx:

No problem at all!
  Tue. 7/17/12 1:37pm northguineahills:

cool, need some Tag Cloud!
  Tue. 7/17/12 1:37pm Lonesome Cowboy Bill:

nice one BSI!
Yes I liked Clouddead, sort of like very alt rap band!
  Tue. 7/17/12 1:37pm Van in DC:

How about with "Cloud" being part of the song title? As in Candy Clouds Part 2, or Cloudbusting :)
Avatar Tue. 7/17/12 1:38pm tonyc:

maxx, perhaps you can answer maestroso's question above, since we have you here!
  Tue. 7/17/12 1:38pm northguineahills:

  Tue. 7/17/12 1:39pm Lonesome Cowboy Bill:

can remember a lyric in a Simon and Garfunkel song - CLOUDY!
  Tue. 7/17/12 1:40pm Lonesome Cowboy Bill:

do you have a favourite Simon and Garfunkel cover version?
  Tue. 7/17/12 1:42pm Van in DC:

(Tony did you see what I did there, sneaking in a Kate Bush reference at the opportunity? ha ha)
  Tue. 7/17/12 1:42pm conrad:

The Cloud Nothings are big with the rock'n'roll kids these days.
  Tue. 7/17/12 1:42pm maxx:

Hi maestroso - CLOUD which consisted of Me / Joe Petruzzelli / Michal McDermott we were a 3 piece power trio mainly a jazz rock classical thing. We were stuck in the middle of the disco scene in the 70s and fought to stay together for about 5 years. We were a musician’s band really. An interesting note Joe went on to play in The Joe Perry Project when Aerosmith broke up for a while – He did that album and toured with Perry for a couple of years. Mike went on to form Otis Gargantua.
Avatar Tue. 7/17/12 1:43pm tonyc:

@ Lonesome Cowboy Bill: My fave S & G tune: "The Big Bright Green Pleasure Machine"
Avatar Tue. 7/17/12 1:44pm tonyc:

maxx: Where was the band based? If you told me, I don't recall.
  Tue. 7/17/12 1:44pm BSI:

@NGH 1:37 -- http://soundcloud.com/tag-cloud
  Tue. 7/17/12 1:44pm maxx:

Sorry I forgot me- maxx Mark K. Connelly I'm into film scoring and classical composition these days I was the keyboard player!
  Tue. 7/17/12 1:44pm maxx:

  Tue. 7/17/12 1:45pm Lonesome Cowboy Bill:

really loving this track, truly epic!
Avatar Tue. 7/17/12 1:45pm tonyc:

@ maxx: Ah yes -- you did tell me! Thanks.
  Tue. 7/17/12 1:46pm maestroso:

Thanks Maxx! Wow, nice playing and great songs.
  Tue. 7/17/12 1:47pm maxx:

Thank you and bless you - here is the latest stuff I do! http://soundcloud.com/maxxsongs/tracks
  Tue. 7/17/12 1:48pm Ricardo Montalban:

Just as some people get nostalgic about hearing the crackle of vinyl records, I get all warm and fuzzy whenever I hear tape 'wow and flutter'.
  Tue. 7/17/12 1:50pm conrad:

Hello, Keith Emerson, we salute you!
  Tue. 7/17/12 1:50pm Lonesome Cowboy Bill:

apart from the mystical name (wow and flutter like yin and yang) surely alot less exciting than Vinyl!
  Tue. 7/17/12 1:51pm Lonesome Cowboy Bill:

if only ELP had played like this!
  Tue. 7/17/12 1:52pm maestroso:

@maxx I know how it was back then; I was involved in several attempts at prog and remember how the disco thing really stifled things (I'm a keyboardist too).
  Tue. 7/17/12 1:54pm maxx:

Yeah it killed us! It was still a blast to hear this stuff again - we can thank Tony for wanting me to get it to him!
  Tue. 7/17/12 1:54pm northguineahills:

Thanks BSI! Will hit it after the show.
  Tue. 7/17/12 1:56pm Lonesome Cowboy Bill:

Just wondering, there was a Scottish band called Clouds signed to Island in the late 60s. I have never heard them but wondering whether you have and if they were also prog classical?
Avatar Tue. 7/17/12 1:58pm tonyc:

@ Lonesome Cowboy Bill: That Clouds was indeed prog classical, sort of in a Moody Blues vein. I do have one of their LPs -- haven't listened to it in quite a while, though.
Avatar Tue. 7/17/12 1:59pm tonyc:

@ maxx: Thanks for the great music! Now you just have to give me more of it!
  Tue. 7/17/12 2:01pm maxx:

It was my pleasure to share it! God bless You Tony when we can do that tape transfer thing again I know there are still live recordings of us at the Hatch Shell in Boston on the Charles River!
  Tue. 7/17/12 2:02pm BSI:

Jeezus. I missed the mic-break and intro for Goosewind but clearly this is something I need to know about.
  Tue. 7/17/12 2:03pm Lonesome Cowboy Bill:

Goosewind remind me of DO MAKE SAY THINK, or with G-dspeed you Black Emporor, and that whole post post new rock thing or whatever it was called!
Avatar Tue. 7/17/12 2:03pm tonyc:

@ maxx: Wow! Would love to hear that!
Avatar Tue. 7/17/12 2:05pm tonyc:

@ BSI: Goosewind do have some actual releases, unlike most of the bands I'm featuring today. Well worth hearing.
Avatar Tue. 7/17/12 2:06pm tonyc:

They remind me a bit of Mauve Sideshow.
Avatar Tue. 7/17/12 2:14pm tonyc:

Coming up next: demos, outtakes, and live stuff from Lothar & the Hand People
Avatar Tue. 7/17/12 2:17pm tonyc:

I do recognize some of the Lothar stuff, but not other things, so I won't attempt track-by-track playlist ID-ing.
  Tue. 7/17/12 2:25pm maxx:

Tony when I saw Lothar in Boston about a hundred years ago I remember then featuring Theremin's when they played - really off the wall stuff!
Avatar Tue. 7/17/12 2:26pm tonyc:

Interesting note: the source of this Lothar stuff (via a friend) ... Bob Dylan's archivist!
Avatar Tue. 7/17/12 2:27pm tonyc:

@ maxx: There's plenty of theremin on some of these tracks too!
  Tue. 7/17/12 2:27pm maxx:

Let me see if any recordings from the time period are still in some of my music friends LP collections!
Avatar Tue. 7/17/12 2:28pm tonyc:

There goes the theremin!
  Tue. 7/17/12 2:29pm maxx:

They had a great live show!
  Tue. 7/17/12 2:30pm conrad:

Oh man, this stuff is as theremin-riffic as I was hoping it would be. Any chance of posting some mp3s on the blog, Tony?
Avatar Tue. 7/17/12 2:34pm tonyc:

@conrad: Perhaps. Would want to get permission first, which might be hard -- but I'll see what I can do. By the by, I'm taking a break from blogging until September.
Avatar Tue. 7/17/12 2:34pm Kenzo:

(False alarm, playlist/comments will not be interrupted!)
Avatar Tue. 7/17/12 2:36pm tonyc:

Thanks anyhow, Kenzo -- our typing fingers enjoyed the siesta.
  Tue. 7/17/12 2:41pm maxx:

Flashback I remember the White Mellotron on stage!
Avatar Tue. 7/17/12 2:44pm tonyc:

The Great White Mellotron?

Track on now is Satie, of course -- as is the next.
  Tue. 7/17/12 2:44pm Van in DC:

Now this is definitely a tune that Kate Bush did, having trouble placing it right off, but I don't think it was her tune originally either
Avatar Tue. 7/17/12 2:45pm tonyc:

Satie's Gymnopedie #3
Avatar Tue. 7/17/12 2:46pm tonyc:

And now it's Satie's "Prelude de 'La Porte Heroique du Ciel' "
  Tue. 7/17/12 2:48pm Van in DC:

Ah I think she used that in her Symphony in Blue track if I remember right
  Tue. 7/17/12 2:48pm maxx:

Lothar had a keyboard that yes and the moody blues used that was actual tapes played when you played it. You would have less than 10 seconds to play it before the tape ran out and rewound to the beginning - had strings and flute stock from the Mellotron company about two octaves!
Avatar Tue. 7/17/12 2:50pm tonyc:

Of course what made it interesting is that it didn't really sound like strings or flute.
  Tue. 7/17/12 2:50pm Ricardo Montalban:

That Satie Gymnopedia #3 take on this reminded me of the piece Bowie did on Low that utilized Chamberlin or Mellowtron (i"m pretty sure it was the former)
  Tue. 7/17/12 2:52pm maestroso:

I had a Mellotron back in the day... it was somewhat delicate.
The ironic thing now is that modern sample players often have Mellotron sounds.
Avatar Tue. 7/17/12 2:53pm tonyc:

Quite a threat from Lothar there: "I'm going to make you eat hot pizza."
  Tue. 7/17/12 2:53pm Ricardo Montalban:

we had an Optigan in our house as a kid. Somewhat similar, only instead of tape, it used this acetate optical discs that had real instrument loops
  Tue. 7/17/12 2:54pm maxx:

I had one for a couple of shows but they were very noisy so I just stuck with the Arp String Ensemble
  Tue. 7/17/12 2:55pm Ricardo Montalban:

This is a great tape, Tony! Quite a mixed bag of Lothar oddities!
  Tue. 7/17/12 2:56pm Van in DC:

bwaa ha ha! I nailed it. I can now keep my Kate Bush Fan Club membership card :)

"an arrangement of Satie's 1st "Gymnopedie", which is used to frame "Symphony in Blue""

Avatar Tue. 7/17/12 2:58pm tonyc:

Thanks for listening everybody! See yers!
  Tue. 7/17/12 2:59pm Van in DC:

Thanks Tony!
