  Thu. 8/23/12 3:10pm DCE:

hi Fabio. can't wait to see who's doing this epic ATP version.
  Thu. 8/23/12 3:10pm DCE:

oh THAT GUY, huh?
  Thu. 8/23/12 3:12pm ?:

I know it's probably been said a million times before, but I just fucking love Mr. Giant Man
  Thu. 8/23/12 3:12pm hamburger:

Fabio's show is sometimes like finding paper money on the floor - unexpected surprise
  Thu. 8/23/12 3:14pm Cecile:

they called an album "the seer"
  Thu. 8/23/12 3:14pm hamburger:

or more, I just feel spoilt listening to goodness
  Thu. 8/23/12 3:15pm BSI:

falling for swans all over again.....
  Thu. 8/23/12 3:15pm Cecile:

they've caught the mid-period Floyd bug, too!
  Thu. 8/23/12 3:18pm northguineahills:

I think Nick Cave covering ATP was the first Nick Cave song I really dug.
  Thu. 8/23/12 3:18pm Roger:

I love Giant Man too. Where can I find my own personal copy to listen to at my leisure (not itunes)
  Thu. 8/23/12 3:18pm DCE:

that's a bug that's pretty hard to get rid of, in my experience, Cecile
  Thu. 8/23/12 3:18pm tim from champaign:

This Heat = punk rock prog? Anyone care to discuss?
  Thu. 8/23/12 3:25pm DCE:

just googled "interesting things to read". work is so boring.
  Thu. 8/23/12 3:27pm hamburger:

DCE - do yoo tumblr?
  Thu. 8/23/12 3:28pm DCE:

nah it's blocked
  Thu. 8/23/12 3:29pm DCE:

any blogspot is blocked too
  Thu. 8/23/12 3:30pm hamburger:

mean. you gotta buddy up some people in IT :)
  Thu. 8/23/12 3:30pm Cheri Pi:

  Thu. 8/23/12 3:32pm Cheri Pi:

Damn Fabio, I feel like I"m 14 again.
  Thu. 8/23/12 3:33pm Cecile:

1986 or 87.
  Thu. 8/23/12 3:33pm Cecile:

uh....I feel like I'm less old again.
  Thu. 8/23/12 3:34pm Cecile:

I think Clay would dig it.
  Thu. 8/23/12 3:34pm DCE:

*inputs valueless data to comment board*
  Thu. 8/23/12 3:35pm Cheri Pi:

hahahaha. we're ageless and priceless.
  Thu. 8/23/12 3:36pm tim from champaign:

I had a landlord who was from South Africa. He said that in South Africa the furnace is called a "geezer".
  Thu. 8/23/12 3:37pm northguineahills:

Hey!, some of my best friends are cheeseballs!
  Thu. 8/23/12 3:37pm BSI:

[raises hand] old and expensive, over here!
  Thu. 8/23/12 3:39pm DCE:

digging Cakewalk. now if it only came with actual cake...
  Thu. 8/23/12 3:41pm hamburger:

Pizza Cake #concept
  Thu. 8/23/12 3:42pm Carnegie:

They say dancing will keep one young Fabio, that and booze.
  Thu. 8/23/12 3:45pm DCE:

this track does my sleep-deprived brain some good
  Thu. 8/23/12 3:46pm hamburger:

Seeland - I SEER what you did there
  Thu. 8/23/12 3:49pm hamburger:

this track reminds me of radiohead - meeting people in the aisle
  Thu. 8/23/12 3:49pm BSI:

goddamn. It was strong when I left for a few minutes & it's stronger still, now... Clearly this is gonna be one of THEM THOSE shows. Dog is not permitted to distract me again until 6pm.
  Thu. 8/23/12 3:50pm hamburger:

what's the dog's name BSI?
  Thu. 8/23/12 3:51pm DCE:

"see, dog, I'm wearing headphones. that means GO AWAY." basically what I told a kid at the playground last night.
  Thu. 8/23/12 3:52pm Chris from DC:

Yes. Seem to be saying that a lot with today's programming.
  Thu. 8/23/12 3:53pm BSI:

...and to prove my point, Fabio breaks out Opa Loka, a top-5 favorite HW tune. zang!
  Thu. 8/23/12 3:53pm BSI:

@hamburger: his name is GOMEZ. Which kind of fits a 90-lb boxer rather perfectly, somehow.
  Thu. 8/23/12 3:53pm hamburger:

oops sorry misread capslock names
  Thu. 8/23/12 3:55pm Bas, NL:

Wow. The music is sky high today Fabio!
  Thu. 8/23/12 3:55pm DCE:

Fabio's doing a nice job keeping up on the playlist today. Knock on wood. Wait, there's no goddammned actual wood anywhere in this office!
  Thu. 8/23/12 3:57pm common:

knock on plastic.
  Thu. 8/23/12 3:58pm hamburger:

gomez is a great name - knock on paper even? knock on 100's of former wood
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:01pm Carnegie:

Far ouT
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:01pm DCE:

dude next to me is getting stoked over fantasy football draft...I'm wondering if they have that for music geeks? draft your fantasy band. if not, perhaps toner cartridges.
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:03pm hamburger:

Tom Scharpling does odd 'fantasy' band line ups now and then?
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:08pm Cecile:

I think that's swedish or norwegian or danish.
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:10pm The Owl:

They're Norwegian. Thanks, Google.
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:10pm northguineahills:

So, modern Scandanavian (not Icelandic or Faroese)
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:11pm hubba:

@DCE - Steve Krakow who is in Plastic Crimewave and does a magazine called Galactic Zoo Dozier, I think, makes "guitar greats" trading cards... yet, fantasy leagues are all stats driven... how could you quantify music folks? I think we'll have to wait for Fabio vs. Clay pt. 23...
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:12pm Cheri Pi:

We're being bombarded by the Scaands today!!! Must be Thorsday :)
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:12pm Cecile:

"Greek Mythology with Fabio"
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:14pm hubba:

Reminds me of Pär Lagerkvist's The Syibl... still like that simple yet
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:14pm Cecile:

It should be a series.
"Oedipus was this guy..."
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:15pm DCE:

haha, I guess I only thought it through the drafting part, which would be kinda fun, doncha think? Or, stats could be based on how many TVs they threw out the window on tour.
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:16pm Cheri Pi:

I think we should have an 'FMU seer for all the difficult questions, like, what am I gonna drink tonight?
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:16pm Cecile:

chart position could be a factor, as could placement on the Voice poll.
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:16pm Cecile:

have some Bell's Oarsman...
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:17pm hubba:

Nice... i like the drafting part... fantasy commune... Sims for building your ideal musical compound!
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:17pm Cecile:

An oracle would also be helpful for metal bands: "Are they going to make their metal album for non-metal fans, or go through a Pink Floyd phase any time soon?"
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:18pm Chris from DC:

Cecile: Don't know about the Bell's, but there are four varieties of DC Brau on tap next door. One hour to go....
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:19pm BSI:

pint of Old Crafty Hen, please [from the makers of Morland's Old Speckled Hen] ... and a plate of curry chips. Cheers.
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:20pm DCE:

oh man, I had the best beer last night...asked for an Ichabod Crane Pumpkin ale, which was good, but the bartender misheard me and gave me some kind of bourbon-oak aged ale. never caught the name of it unfortunately.
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:22pm BSI:

Chris: is the DCBrau porter out yet?
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:23pm hamburger:

ale be damned
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:23pm Cheri Pi:

Cecile that should be a standard question for all metal bands (except for True Power metal-that would make no sense)
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:24pm Cheri Pi:

@DCE: -damnit man, go back to the bar, recreate the scene and find out.
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:25pm DCE:

never heard this Fuzzhead track...local 90s weirdos, still see some of them around town at shows.
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:25pm Cheri Pi:

I have not had Old Crafty Hen!
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:25pm Chris from DC:

BSI: Yes, I think the porter is available, though not on tap today sadly. They're doing a cask ale with Stillwater that sounds interesting.
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:25pm DCE:

CP, I may have to, they're having some synth-kosmiche stuff there tonight (Outer Space and Watchword) along with Gary War
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:27pm Cheri Pi:

Report back to the group DCE, we must know the name of this magic elixir. Oh GW played here a few nights ago, I was feeling lame so didn't attend.
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:28pm BSI:

Cheri, it's a fine thing, & has lubricated more than a few jams around here... http://www.beer-pages.com/stories/old-crafty-hen.htm
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:30pm Cheri Pi:

hey, this just in, does anyone need a Giant Humpty Hump Head? http://www.stevenhughes.net/2012/08/20/giant-humpty-hump-head-needs-a-home-and-can-be-yours/
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:30pm Cecile:

yes, old speckled hen is like crack to me, I hope crafty is similar.
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:30pm Cheri Pi:

mmmmmm beeeerrrrrr
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:31pm DCE:

wouldn't you know, CP, that page is blocked! gasp! I can't see the Humpty Head!
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:33pm Cheri Pi:

DCE: here's some highlights"I have learned from a former tenant of the building that a man was evicted from his apartment, and then lived surreptitiously in the head for several weeks before being discovered"
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:33pm BSI:

Cecile: the Crafty is better, in my humble. More like a bitter, maybe? haven't had Speckled in a while, memory fades...
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:34pm Cheri Pi:

Also DCE: "50k to build; built by FM Productions South San Francisco.
(they also did the giant pig for Pink Floyd. lol)"
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:34pm BSI:

DAMN, Cheri, that Humpty Head is a thing of beauty. Not ashamed to admit I totally dug the first DU album. And maybe 5% of the 2nd one. After that, uh..... waiter! Another Hen please...
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:35pm Cheri Pi:

I'm gonna look for OCH tonight at the corner shop.
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:35pm Mike East:

I think you're playing this song backwards.
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:36pm Cheri Pi:

I'm not ashamed to admit I'm listening to Fabio & Du at the same time and I'm loving it!!!
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:36pm DCE:

ha, reverse gate?
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:39pm Cecile:

Tiny Tim joined the Residents? Who knew...
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:39pm tim from champaign:

Damn, missed the beer talk. Speaking of Bells I will be sipping some suds in Bells beer garden one week from this Saturday. I can't wait. I'm DJing the UFO Dictator festival in Kalamazoo that night.
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:41pm Cheri Pi:

Oh I'm jealoos TimfC!
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:42pm tim from champaign:

I'll drink a bells for you Cheri Pi.
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:42pm DCE:

sounds like fun
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:43pm Cheri Pi:

  Thu. 8/23/12 4:50pm Cecile:

"Physics with Fabio"
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:51pm DCE:

"until" you're falling off the chair? that's how I came in here!
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:52pm Jex:

I think Dusty's chattiness might be rubbing off on Fabio a little bit!
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:53pm duke:

In space, radio waves travel at the speed of light. They're electron-magnetic waves.
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:56pm duke:

  Thu. 8/23/12 4:56pm PAA:

Man, great show. Andromeda and falling off the chair really just put this show over the edge. I'll need to take another listen to that description later.
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:57pm Cheri Pi:

I like Chatty Fab.
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:58pm Bas, NL:

It just hit me: This is quite different from the Public Enemy concert i attended last night..
  Thu. 8/23/12 4:58pm northguineahills:

Cool, haven't heard this Mika Vaino.
  Thu. 8/23/12 5:09pm Jedd XperIence:

Kller show today F, a rare occasion that I can listen in real time,,, Really loving the Svarte Greiner!
  Thu. 8/23/12 5:16pm northguineahills:

I was also listening to Fabio & DU at the same time.

I saw Asmus Tietchens do an installation in a small Atlanta coffee house a while back.
Avatar Thu. 8/23/12 5:17pm fabio:

Didn't the Jedd Experience once perform on this show many light years ago? Glad you're liking the show...and thanks.
  Thu. 8/23/12 5:20pm hubba:

This set is totally slaying!!!!
  Thu. 8/23/12 5:23pm Cecile:

"Geology with Fabio"

  Thu. 8/23/12 5:24pm Fern:


Great show Fabio! Best you've done a while.
  Thu. 8/23/12 5:25pm Cecile:

will there be a test?
  Thu. 8/23/12 5:25pm Bill F.:

Was just going to say, this is the best show I can remember for a long time. Really, really great stuff. Hats off to Fabio. Three cheers!
  Thu. 8/23/12 5:26pm northguineahills:

The last set (since Mika Vaino), is probably the only time I've been able to say I've seen 50% of the bands/musicians Fabio played.
  Thu. 8/23/12 5:27pm Real Cecile:

That wasn't me.
  Thu. 8/23/12 5:27pm hamburger:

fabio is faboulous! I like accordions too
  Thu. 8/23/12 5:28pm Real Cecile:

Although I have general non-localized warm feelings toward you, Fabs.
Avatar Thu. 8/23/12 5:28pm fabio:

you guys (and gals) are too nice to me. thanks. and glad you enjoyed the show.
  Thu. 8/23/12 5:32pm BSI:

holy crap.
  Thu. 8/23/12 5:34pm kata:

tuning in late. what's up freaks !
  Thu. 8/23/12 5:34pm hamburger:

let me clear my throat?
  Thu. 8/23/12 5:36pm moose:

i'm late too- will listen to archive later! the people seem pleased. i've got the 'gage...' (which is the term i've been using after learning from mr pidge)
  Thu. 8/23/12 5:36pm the glowing one:

throat obstructions are serious business, even minor ones
  Thu. 8/23/12 5:42pm Scott W:

BSI! It's coming. Hand-packed, on this day, by yours truly.
  Thu. 8/23/12 5:43pm hubba:

Dudes, Fab, check out the Pat Murano/Tom Carter Nacht/Black Dirt Studio digital release on Free Music Archives... pretty stellar stuff.
  Thu. 8/23/12 5:44pm BSI:

You'se my hero, SW!
  Thu. 8/23/12 5:45pm nic:

hey awesome show
  Thu. 8/23/12 5:54pm Matt from Springfield:

Drunk DJ Duel!!
  Thu. 8/23/12 5:55pm Matt from Springfield:

OMG Next Week!!
So much Triumvirate that day! Julie-Meghan "Dead Can Danceathon" I the early morning hours, and 4 hour Fabio-Clay battle in the afternoon! YES!
  Thu. 8/23/12 5:56pm moose:

i'm psyched for that 4AD stuff too
  Thu. 8/23/12 5:58pm Matt from Springfield:

2 MINUTES. Banter on!
  Thu. 8/23/12 5:59pm kat330:

Let the listernerds assess points!
  Thu. 8/23/12 5:59pm Ike:

Ha ha! I agree that you need an independent monitor! Clay Pigeon has engaged in some point-related shenanigans in the past for sure. Maybe let the commenters do it?
