Another Kevin Ayers fan!

Thanks for the Kevin tribute, Scott. Crystal Clear.
Love this demo - the one that inspired Joe McG's choice of bed music.
Avatar    Mon. 2/25/13 3:06pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Good afternoon forever.
Avatar    Mon. 2/25/13 3:07pm Matt from Springfield:

@Nardo: But the point is in the labeling--you wouldn't want horse in lasagna! At least Ikea always stated clearly that they were serving the Swedish delicacy, horsemeatballs.
Avatar    Mon. 2/25/13 3:08pm Matt from Springfield:

@Rev Turnip: That would make a GREAT album title! And with "This Song Isn't Called Anything" playing, it seems a fitting send off to Kevin Ayers!
Avatar    Mon. 2/25/13 3:09pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

YAY! Oscillator squeal! I swoon!

  Mon. 2/25/13 3:18pm paula pc:

thanks for playing an alt version of the first Ayers song I ever heard (Stop This Train (Again Doing It)), which I heard on a cassette years and years ago and just stopped in my tracks

I suspect you will, Faye, as another polymath.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 2/25/13 3:23pm S.A. from S.F.:

My first exposure to Kevin Ayers was the June 1st, 1974 album, which I bought because it featured live tracks by my latest favorite, Brian Eno. Funny how these things go.
Avatar Mon. 2/25/13 3:25pm YETI BOB:

(scott. you can go ahead and play nothing but kevin ayers until the end of your show)
Avatar    Mon. 2/25/13 3:26pm Matt from Springfield:

Like "Vegetable Man" x "Not To Touch The Earth" x Velvet Underground = THIS!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 2/25/13 3:27pm S.A. from S.F.:

I think there should be some Robert Wyatt, as well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 2/25/13 3:31pm S.A. from S.F.:

"Religious Experience" is actually one of my most favorite Kevin Ayers songs ever -- pretty good, since I don't believe in religious experiences!
Avatar    Mon. 2/25/13 3:33pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

that tune from the bottom of a well was a perfect brain puppet-show for a [aforementioned] foolish lack of sleep. Probably need that album now...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 2/25/13 3:36pm S.A. from S.F.:

I've often thought about having a radio show, and matching Kevin Ayers' "Religious Experience" with Jethro Tull's "Singing All Day".
Avatar    Mon. 2/25/13 3:37pm Yair Yona:

What's up Scott
Avatar    Mon. 2/25/13 3:37pm Carmichael:

Hiya Scotty and everyone. I shall also chime "Kevin"!

Sorry, Van. Having to had to cut in, near the end of Irene's set, I know how it feels.

@SA: As long as you don't try to steal my soul/break into my dreams!
@Van: Happy Monday and Happy Ayers to you!

More obscure Kevin Ayers today.

Matt: You call that "respect"?
Avatar    Mon. 2/25/13 4:24pm Matt from Springfield:

@Yair,tim: I have that Crosby solo one on vinyl--you open up the jacket and it has photos of all the musicians of the album, most of them legendary. I bought that from a record store in college, and the guy who sold it showed me the pictures and commented how much drugs must've been consumed during the making of the album!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 2/25/13 4:25pm steve:

hi Scott and listeners! this is quite the tribute
Avatar    Mon. 2/25/13 4:26pm Matt from Springfield:

@SA: This is the Hoof AND Mouth! Imitation is always the sincerest form of flattery! Don't judge on its merits, judge on the fact it was included in the lineup ;)

Hi steve!
Avatar    Mon. 2/25/13 4:27pm Yair Yona:

@Tim, Matt - If I Could Only is one of my all time fav albums, of course.

is Traffic involved with this? I could swear I heard Stevie Winwood.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 2/25/13 4:29pm BDR:

Holyfuck, that Bryce doing Zeppelin? I need reevaluate everything.
  Mon. 2/25/13 4:30pm John L.:

I first heard Kevin Ayers on a Connecticut station while I was growing up on Long Island. I was 12 or 13 and hearing his music was pivotal in shaping my taste. This is a great tribute. Thanks.

Avatar    Mon. 2/25/13 4:36pm DCE:

speaking of sleep, I just read a "review" of a Pink Floyd tribute act. One of the musicians says "we will play all the hits to keep people from dozing off." Is that the proper attitude?
Avatar    Mon. 2/25/13 4:38pm jeff-m:

really enjoying the tribute man!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/25/13 4:40pm tim from champaign:

Last night I listened to The Final Cut for the first time since I was a teenager. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I liked it. Not much of Pink Floyd Fan after Ummagumma.
