That's right, it is early for you out there. We've just had our NY luck lunch centered around black-eyed peas, and finishing with a glass of champagne from the bottle barely partaken from at midnight last night.

I miraculously dodged a hangover this morning. Not to tempt fate, but I did.

Just read that our Louisville area had an average temp in 2012 that was FOUR degrees above normal. And only 2/3 the precipitation of 2011. No wonder our garden was pretty much a failure this summer.

Hey Danko! Good to see you here...
  Tue. 1/1/13 12:42pm Rich Corinthian Leather:

My wife's half Finnish, did some studying of Finnish folklore and poetry. We found an audio presentation of the epic Finn poem The Kavela (sic?) and it sounds really peculiar, like Hugo Ball interpreted by a chorus of walruses (hope that doesn't offend any Finnish folks - it's in an old tongue.)
  Tue. 1/1/13 12:42pm HoNeY Water:

Where's "up here" Rich? Aren't you in Portland?
  Tue. 1/1/13 12:43pm Rich Corinthian Leather:

@HoNeY Water: Yes, sort of. I am in the hills of SW Washington, just across the river from Portland.
  Tue. 1/1/13 12:44pm Philo Gristle:

@Rich Kalevala, yup. And that walruses (walrusi) sounds good to me! Honey always says it reads like monotone Hawaiian.
  Tue. 1/1/13 12:47pm HoNeY Water:

@glenn: From all the cultural signals and signs, I think Finland is preparing to rule the world. :)

@Rich: Every year my Finn-laws send me a lovely piece of Kalevala jewelry. The epic IS rather weird folklore what little I know. I recommend a really good Russian film about Sammi culture (Lapland) called "The Cuckoo."

So that's where Lux got the name for his band.....
  Tue. 1/1/13 12:53pm Rich Corinthian Leather:

There's a large community of Finns here in SW Washington, most of them Apostolic Lutheran, so they tend to ignore the ways of the old country.
They are somewhat like Mennonites or Amish in that they aren't supposed to have TV, radio, internet, etc.. Women aren't supposed to cut their hair and they wear long dresses.

welcome and happy new year to all those in for the 1 o'clock hour!
  Tue. 1/1/13 12:58pm Philo Gristle:

@Rich Really? Interesting. Always on the lookout for ways to get out of midwest and NW is one of the main prospects.... but methinks that community might not be the way to go. Finns in the 'old country' tend to be pretty secular.

@Tony Yup. Found that to be an odd name for an Italian label!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/1/13 1:00pm tonyc:

@ Philo: Aha! Now I get you. The label logo is an image of Frankenstein, which also seems kind of Cramps like.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/1/13 1:01pm tonyc:

The track on now is Turkish, in case anyone was wondering. Isn't Turkish related to Finnish?
  Tue. 1/1/13 1:03pm Rich Corinthian Leather:

@ Philo: Yes, supposedly the Finns that migrated to the US, I think in the 40s/50s did so because their country had become 'ungodly'. There's also a large Finnish Apostolic Lutheran community in the midwest, I think in Wisconsin, etc..
Sometimes families would send wayward boys from the Mid-West to go live with distant relatives in the Northwest, as it was farther from big city and all its 'worldly' troubles.
  Tue. 1/1/13 1:03pm Philo Gristle:

@Tony Not to my knowledge; Hungarian, yes, though I think only structurally as it sounds very foreign to my ears.
  Tue. 1/1/13 1:04pm Rich Corinthian Leather:

I love Cem!
  Tue. 1/1/13 1:05pm Rich Corinthian Leather:

I recently bought the Turkish entry in that Peace Love and Poetry series of records. It's great.
  Tue. 1/1/13 1:06pm Philo Gristle:

@Rich Of course it's funny to think that they came to America to escape the ungodly, as in some ways and looking from distant lands, seems to be the hq of the ungodly!
  Tue. 1/1/13 1:08pm HoNeY Water:

Aw, cop out! :)
  Tue. 1/1/13 1:09pm Philo Gristle:

@Tony Got the band name and the first word down just right! The album's odd title translates to The Death of the Magnetman.
  Tue. 1/1/13 1:10pm Philo Gristle:

Really dig this Stalteri track.

My brief trip to Helsinki gave me the *tiniest* bit more understanding of Finnish pronunciation.
  Tue. 1/1/13 1:13pm HoNeY Water:

While I realize my eyes and ears have been more finely tuned into all media references to Finland since 1997, I still feel there's a global predominance in Finn references (even on Jeopardy ;), especially when you consider a population about the same as our US state of Indiana. And Helsinki's a pop. equivalent to Indianapolis.
  Tue. 1/1/13 1:13pm Ike:

Hello! I've read that Finnish and Hungarian are also theorized to be loosely related to Korean somehow, but this is disputed, IIRC.

  Tue. 1/1/13 1:22pm Philo Gristle:

@Ike Considering all the odd connections (art, language, myths, culture) over and across all continents, probably true! Everything stemming from some ancient ur-language they snatched from the unconscious pool of knowledge.
  Tue. 1/1/13 1:22pm Rich Corinthian Leather:

He's kind of all over the place in the manner of Craig Leon.
I love his comp Miniatures. It's probably one of my most precious records.
  Tue. 1/1/13 1:23pm jeremy:

I love that Hybrid Kids, esp. "Combo Satori" doing Sun Ra's Enlightenment in a Residentsy style.
  Tue. 1/1/13 1:25pm Rich Corinthian Leather:

@Ike: My wife claims that there's a Genghis Khan bloodline to the Lapland Finns, due to Khan having conquered that region. Some Finns have a slight Asian appearance.

I think it was the Mongolian hordes that united east and west in Suomi. ;) Actually, I see, if not hear, a lot of Hawaiian in the language. A treasure trove for linGuists.
  Tue. 1/1/13 1:27pm Rich Corinthian Leather:

@Jeremy: I found a split cassette with Morgan/John White called Play Loud/Play Quiet and it's got some Hybrid Kidz doing Christmas songs on one side.

I forget if the current day Mongols also have the occipital bun like many Finns do (myself included).
  Tue. 1/1/13 1:30pm Rich Corinthian Leather:

i think that Morgan became a Sanyasin, a follower of Osho, who was once known as Bagwan Shri Rashneesh. They had a commune/compound not too far from Portland OR, would come to town to bring homeless people to the commune, wear red, etc...

Really enjoy all the Italian cuts today, Tony. Being a fan of Italian cinema in all its forms I've relegated my appreciation to mostly soundtrack work.
  Tue. 1/1/13 1:32pm Rich Corinthian Leather:

Not sure, but it's possible that Morgan might've lived there. Seems like I read something about it. My cousin was also a 'Rajneesh'. He had some pretty interesting stories about it. The commune imploded, not without much legal and political intrigue. People who lived here at the time know all about it.

This echosquelch bath is just what the witch doctor ordered...
  Tue. 1/1/13 1:36pm Rich Corinthian Leather:

I think Osho is also a song by Future Sound of London/Amorphous Androgynous.
Osho still has a lot of followers, despite the controversy of Rajneesh Purim and the fact that he's dead.
  Tue. 1/1/13 1:37pm Rich Corinthian Leather:

I found a Bagwan Shri Rajneesh album at Mississippi Records that was minted about the time that the cult was happening in OR and I totally failed to buy it. I think it's worth a lot now.
  Tue. 1/1/13 1:37pm HoNeY Water:

@jeremy: I like that, "echosquelch bath"!

Heh! This fits Pratt's description of "humunculus bearded eccentricity, and stoned immaculately conceived weirdosity." I'll have what he's having.

The amount of great pop songs Jim Pembroke penned always makes me a bit sad he received no recognition outside Finland.

I thought Esoteric did a very good job of reissuing Wigwam's early albums a few years ago!

Wimple Winch! fantastic band.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/1/13 1:58pm tonyc:

And what a name...
  Tue. 1/1/13 1:58pm Rich Corinthian Leather:

Tonyc: Not sure! I should know, it being morbid and all, but I can't think of who that could be. The Rajneeshes were implicated in a plot to poison the population of Antelope OR, in order to affect the outcome of a local election. It is considered the first act of domestic terrorism or something like that.
  Tue. 1/1/13 2:00pm Philo Gristle:

I used to dislike Finnish music (easy to do in Finland) until I heard the oddball combo of "Dance of the Anthropoids/Frederick & Bill" from Tombstone Valentine on radio while I was in the army... it's still the least-liked early album by the band, but it remains my personal favorite.
  Tue. 1/1/13 2:00pm Sir Lancelot Pratt:

their track Atmospheres is one of my favourite psychedelic classics on the Rubble comps!
  Tue. 1/1/13 2:00pm jeremy:

Wimple Winch is truly one of the best names, much better than their first name, Just Four Men.

LA 1919 - got to be Robert Wyatt on vocals?
  Tue. 1/1/13 2:04pm Philo Gristle:

@Tony Glad to hear it. It always gets disparaging comments from Wiggy fans due to the loud guitar in the mix... but that was what dragged me over the fence. Much more dynamic than some of the later efforts...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/1/13 2:05pm tonyc:

@ Sir Lancelot: It does sound like Wyatt! (Don't think it is, though.)
  Tue. 1/1/13 2:06pm HoNeY Water:

Ooooh, I like this very much.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/1/13 2:11pm tonyc:

They're not actually big Frank Herbert fans -- they just liked the name.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/1/13 2:13pm tonyc:

@ Sir Lancelot: yes, including some Italian things. He's big there -- they call him Roberto Viatti, or something like that.
  Tue. 1/1/13 2:13pm Sir Lancelot Pratt:

not sure whether Dune or Inland Empire is David Lynch's worst film?
  Tue. 1/1/13 2:16pm Philo Gristle:

Being a fan, I'm ashamed to say I've not seen "Inland Empire." I do like Dune, though, but Eraserhead and Straight Story remain my favorites.
  Tue. 1/1/13 2:16pm Doug S.:

Keep trying to listen via iPhone, but the mountains of western Maryland keep getting in the darn way.
  Tue. 1/1/13 2:19pm jeremy:

Saw a midnight screening of Inland Empire when it came out, it was torturous but artful so and made a big impression on me ultimately. Kind of like a point of view impression of insanity.
  Tue. 1/1/13 2:21pm Philo Gristle:

Oh, I forgot. I fell asleep in Cannes watching Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me when it was screened in competition. I might like it better today, but haven't dared go back.

@ Doug: How pushy of those mountains!
  Tue. 1/1/13 2:25pm Ike:

Inland Empire is definitely Lynch's worst IMHO. The digital filming is very ugly. At least Dune has gorgeous, haunting visuals.

@Doug: I-68?
  Tue. 1/1/13 2:26pm Doug S.:

Thank you so much for doing your show today, Tony (unlike the rest of the slacking Tuesday GTDR crew).
  Tue. 1/1/13 2:26pm Philo Gristle:

Bad Vugum came out with some great oddball bands in the early 90s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/1/13 2:27pm tonyc:

What was that Keuhkot track about (if you were following along, that is)?
  Tue. 1/1/13 2:27pm jeremy:

Keuhkot is kewl!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/1/13 2:27pm tonyc:

@ Doug: I did my slacking on Christmas Day.
  Tue. 1/1/13 2:29pm Philo Gristle:

I'm not sure there was any sense to it. Odd vocalizations, occasionally recognizable words. He usually has either a phrase or two that he follows to extremes. The title of it was "thought." The album is called "I feel pity for Bilharzialoista" (who or whatever that is -- not Finnish).
  Tue. 1/1/13 2:33pm Philo Gristle:

A lot of the freak folk scene as well as (one man) bands like Keuhkot (lungs) avoid being intelligible to Finns, too. Which is fine, since the soundscape is often accessible.
  Tue. 1/1/13 2:39pm listener james from westwood:

dune is a glorious, baroque mess.
  Tue. 1/1/13 2:40pm HoNeY Water:

Another Italian track I'm finding most mollusk.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/1/13 2:41pm tonyc:

RE "Dune": Lynch disowned it, didn't he? On the grounds that there was a lot of outside interference?
  Tue. 1/1/13 2:43pm Philo Gristle:

@Tony yes. THough a few years back it seemed for a moment like he was going to be allowed to remix the film from all the footage shot. For whatever reason it didn't happen.
  Tue. 1/1/13 2:44pm Rich Corinthian Leather:

@tonyc: he disowned the lengthened, TV version of Dune but not the theatrical version.
The TV version has stupid narration in it.
  Tue. 1/1/13 2:45pm Rich Corinthian Leather:

Maybe I'm wrong, though. I do know the TV version is credited to Alan Smithee.
  Tue. 1/1/13 2:47pm Philo Gristle:

@Rich I think you're right, at least technically. He wasn't happy with the theatrical cut, but didn't exactly disown it. He doesn't speak of the film in interviews.
  Tue. 1/1/13 2:48pm Philo Gristle:

I wish Jodorowsky had made the film with Giger and Moebius. That would have been something to see....
  Tue. 1/1/13 2:52pm Rich Corinthian Leather:

I like how the aborted Jodorowsky film begat Alien.
  Tue. 1/1/13 2:52pm Danko:

Fantastic last set (before the very last song), enjoyed every track, thanks Tony.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/1/13 2:53pm tonyc:

Thanks, Danko!
  Tue. 1/1/13 2:53pm Sir Lancelot Pratt:

Yes Philo - Ridley Scott would have made a great job of it - sort of mix between Blade Runner and Alien.
Just like the studio destroyed Michael Mann's The Keep and John Boorman's 3 hour epic Excorcist 2, so they destroyed Dune!
  Tue. 1/1/13 2:54pm listener james from westwood:

the mega-tv version sounds like it was narrated by someone roused with great difficulty from sleep. there's like three straight minutes of background info delivered over what look like scenes and characters from dune rendered by a police sketch artist.
when i saw the film in theaters, they were handing out glossary sheets for the terminology.
  Tue. 1/1/13 2:55pm HoNeY Water:

Tony, I think you do a most admirable job at pronouncing all the many languages you encounter.

Arrivederci, all!
  Tue. 1/1/13 2:56pm listener james from westwood:

dug the show, tony! may you keep the spice flowing through 2013 and beyond.
  Tue. 1/1/13 2:57pm jeremy:

Zapp! Into the future! A wonderful first show of 2013, Tony!
  Tue. 1/1/13 2:57pm Rich Corinthian Leather:

Thanks again for a wonderful show, Tony! I always enjoying hearing totally new-to-my-ears music from you every week.
Happy 2013 everybody!
  Tue. 1/1/13 2:57pm HoNeY Water:

Spice? Just don't eat the worm!
  Tue. 1/1/13 2:57pm Philo Gristle:

Back when Ridley still made good movies! Though I think he never surpassed Duellists. But I would have preferred Jodo to actually direct it, too. He was at the top of his game then, and turned his concept into Incal with Moebius, which remains one of the great graphic novels.

Anyways, great show, Tony, glad to be able to listen live for once.
  Tue. 1/1/13 2:58pm Sir Lancelot Pratt:

ever seen Boorman's Zardoz or Zulawski's Na srebrnym globie (which is now on You Tube), both sort of Dune influenced!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/1/13 2:58pm tonyc:

Thanks HoNey Water, James, & Jeremy! And thanks, everybody, for listening! See you all next week. Sayonara!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/1/13 2:59pm tonyc:

Thanks, Rich!
  Tue. 1/1/13 2:59pm HoNeY Water:

Zardoz, yes, when it originally came out. Connery in little clothing -- loved it!
  Tue. 1/1/13 2:59pm Philo Gristle:

I saw Silver Globe on tv while in FInland, no subtitles and in Polish, and it was STILL mesmerizing. I started taping it halfway through, never seen it all the way.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/1/13 3:00pm tonyc:

Toodleloo for realz! Thanks for showing up....
  Tue. 1/1/13 3:01pm Rich Corinthian Leather:

yes, I only just relatively recently saw Zardoz. It's great! I loved 70s sci-fi. I haven't seen the Zulawski film, though
  Tue. 1/1/13 3:01pm Philo Gristle:

Wrote about Incal here at some length: http://bit.ly/r4z5CB
  Tue. 1/1/13 3:01pm Philo Gristle:

Thanks Tony and everyone!
  Tue. 1/1/13 3:02pm Rich Corinthian Leather:

Zulawski's Possession is one of my all time faves
  Tue. 1/1/13 3:02pm Sir Lancelot Pratt:

thanks Tony for a great non-corporate rock show.
No U2, Madonna, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, etc.
