That Toupidex track is amazing!

They're one of my longtime fave bands.
Avatar Tue. 1/15/13 1:30pm tonyc:

@ Glenn: So much for my math skills -- with added invisible exclamation points I'm probably down to less than 70 percent of required letters. I better rest up and drink lots of hot tea, as I seem to be losing strength rapidly.

Salutations Tony and all,
just dropped in to get my mind some conditioning (gaye bykers on dope) and all that!
Avatar Tue. 1/15/13 1:33pm tonyc:

Salutations, Sir L.A.P.!
  Tue. 1/15/13 1:34pm Sir Lancelot Armstrong Pratt:

looks like you've been indulging in some rarified and haloed art damaged, post punk, new wave!
Avatar Tue. 1/15/13 1:36pm tonyc:

More or less, I guess!
  Tue. 1/15/13 1:42pm Sir Lancelot Armstrong Pratt:

I must say I enjoyed immensely DDD's show last week of where were they at the start of their careers.
But the one that was the most startlingly was the Attilla track, Billy Joel's first band.
Much debate took place, the bone of contention being whether that particular album was the worst rock album of all time.
The majority believed so, with a small but vociferous minority holding that it was far too adventurous to be the worst. That glorious label was held to be in fact Billy Joel's debut solo album!
Avatar Tue. 1/15/13 1:43pm tonyc:

Glad you enjoyed it! Many thanks again to Thom for the fill-in.
  Tue. 1/15/13 1:43pm Jeremy:

Hey Tony, just tuning in, this set is great! Will have to return to the archives to check out that Ariel Kalma, I wake up to drones and bird sounds of Osmose every morning, it's in my CD clock radio...
Avatar Tue. 1/15/13 1:45pm tonyc:

Hey Jeremy! I scored a bunch of Kalma cassettes a while back and am still making my way through them -- some are great. I'll be sure to report back here.
Avatar Tue. 1/15/13 1:46pm tonyc:

By playing 'em, that is.
  Tue. 1/15/13 1:51pm Jeremy:

Thanks, will be on the lookout. This Pseudo Code is fantastic stuff!
Avatar Tue. 1/15/13 2:02pm tonyc:

Glad you like the Pseudo Code, Jeremy. They recorded a ton of music in 1981–82, much of it unreleased at the time. The unreleased stuff has been coming out finally over the last couple of years and is of surprisingly high quality. (Everything on "Slaughter in a Tiny Place" is previously unreleased.)
  Tue. 1/15/13 2:02pm Sir Lancelot Armstrong Pratt:

Is this the same Kristin Hersh who was in the Breeders?
Avatar Tue. 1/15/13 2:03pm tonyc:

She was in the Throwing Muses -- don't know about the Breeders.
  Tue. 1/15/13 2:04pm Jeremy:

Oh yes! Hands to Take is probably in my top ten favorite songs! This album should have been bigger then the first.
  Tue. 1/15/13 2:05pm Moncardo Ritalban:

I think it's Kim Deal that was in the Throwing Muses, then Breeders.
Avatar Tue. 1/15/13 2:05pm tonyc:

RE "Hands 2 Take": It's a Ken Freedman fave too, fer sure.
  Tue. 1/15/13 2:05pm Moncardo Ritalban:

Or Kelly Deal. I can't remember. Kim was in The Pixies, of that I am fairly certain.
  Tue. 1/15/13 2:06pm Jeremy:

My David Cunningham obsession only grows with time.
  Tue. 1/15/13 2:07pm Sir Lancelot Armstrong Pratt:

my mistake - The Breeders were an American alternative rock band formed in 1988 by Kim Deal of Pixies and Tanya Donelly of Throwing Muses (but not Kristin Hersh).
Avatar Tue. 1/15/13 2:08pm tonyc:

@ Jeremy: Have you heard "Grey Scale"? A great album, and certainly totally different from the Flying Lizards.
  Tue. 1/15/13 2:09pm Jeremy:

Tanya Donelly was only on the first Breeders LP, Pod, then Kelly joined for the second, which had all the hits. I prefer Pod, it's a great album.
  Tue. 1/15/13 2:10pm Moncardo Ritalban:

Three people of the New Wave era that I find really fascinating now but really overlooked by me at the time: David Cunningham, Craig Leon and Morgan Fisher.
  Tue. 1/15/13 2:11pm Moncardo Ritalban:

I have to confess that I actually liked the Pixies when Kim Deal had equal time singing. After she was sort of shuffled to just being just bass player/backing singer I sort of lost interest in them. One of the most criminally over-rated bands of the 90s, which is saying a lot.
  Tue. 1/15/13 2:16pm New Guard:

More T.L. Fantastic.
  Tue. 1/15/13 2:16pm Jeremy:

Yep, I have Grey Scale too, I think it was his first LP? Trying to get my hands on everything. Most recently got his productions for Martin Creed, stark and funny stuff.
Avatar Tue. 1/15/13 2:17pm tonyc:

Hey New Guard -- yep, T.L. is Toups!
  Tue. 1/15/13 2:21pm Jeremy:

I love both the Pixies and the Breeders! The Pixies came around when I was in high school and achieved quite a high profile for such a strange band, and what a breath of fresh air they were for me. Then the Breeders were a huge smash and it was one of the first times I liked what was on the radio. Kelly Deal's guitar playing on the second album is wonderful.
Avatar Tue. 1/15/13 2:23pm tonyc:

Have to admit I don't know either band at all. Where should a newbie start?
  Tue. 1/15/13 2:23pm Jeremy:

Finnish? Sounds mongolian...
Avatar Tue. 1/15/13 2:24pm tonyc:

Yep, Finnish. I'm thinking maybe it's Sami?
  Tue. 1/15/13 2:26pm Jeremy:

I think the first EP by the Pixies, Come on Pilgrim is a good place to start. The first LP is also great, the second is more poppy but also great, then they lose the thread for me, maybe because as RM said, Kim is shunted off.
  Tue. 1/15/13 2:27pm Jeremy:

Must investigate Sami...
Avatar Tue. 1/15/13 2:38pm tonyc:

Both Bertoni and Serotti (on now) are from the band Confusional Quartet.
  Tue. 1/15/13 2:40pm BSI:

confusionally delicious.
  Tue. 1/15/13 2:42pm BSI:

god, this is lovely.
Avatar Tue. 1/15/13 2:43pm tonyc:

Glad you approve!
  Tue. 1/15/13 2:47pm BSI:

Enthusiastically so, boss.
Avatar Tue. 1/15/13 2:50pm tonyc:

This Doubling Riders track is co-written by Pascal Comelade, as you can probably now hear!
  Tue. 1/15/13 2:50pm northguineahills:

Very awesome set, tony!
Avatar Tue. 1/15/13 2:51pm tonyc:

Thanks, NGH!
  Tue. 1/15/13 2:53pm Jeremy:

love this Joe Crow track too! No 7" here though, only have it on that Cherry Red comp.
  Tue. 1/15/13 2:53pm Doug S.:

Thanks, Jeremy! @ Future Forward: One of these days! Harder to do when I no longer have access to the station's new bin -- have to rely on what I have here in my house in Portland.
