A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

I hear you Trouble, WFMU has taught me one thing, there is no genre that i'm suseptible to don't like. I always hearing something on the radio that'll prove me wrong.

Hello trouble.

@pierre I can firmly state that marzipan rock will never find a home in this house.
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 9:30am pierre:

@ Brian in UK : yes, well I can still understand listeners who has favorite genre, or hated ones. But, yeah, on a personal level, I've just be surprised a lot (that is also because my knowledge of music is maybe not super vast) and I love the vertigo feeling of not discovering genre that I think I knew.
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 9:32am Trouble:

i live for hearing something new, but is that an oddity? are most people into the familiar? not "us' but the "others:" who haven't been baptized with fmu blood

@Trouble - yes i think most normals prefer the familiar. I have friends who, while they are fine people, still listen to q104.3...which is fine for an education in classic rock, but once you've heard all those songs a hundred times, its time to move on to higher learning...WFMUniversity
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/26/13 9:43am Brian in UK:

I love the idea of the dj playing the record to entertain & educate the listener. We never quite lose the music we grew up with as youngsters however sophisticated we think we have become.

Hey ngh, good train trip?

@pierre it is overcast, cold and damp over here, sounds like your kind of weather?

Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/26/13 9:59am Brian in UK:

Funny, the words educate & entertain were those used when formalising the role of BBC television. As the BBC is paid for by the taxpayer it has a parallel of sorts to FMU.
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 10:01am pierre:

@ Trouble : I can totally see the thill in that.

@ Brian in the UK : totally, although recently I've been longuing for some sun in the park. But give hot tea, or fresh beers, and every weather suits me.
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 10:04am Van in DC:

I'd have to say most of everything I hear on most shows I listen to here, I've never heard before.
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 10:04am KevinfromBayRidge:

Whatever is said about Prog, it was one of the genres that "gatewayed" my teenage self past the Beatles. Mr. Ayers & early Soft Machine were certainly amongst that best purveyers of the above.

Thanks to a record-hoarding step-brother, I managed to leap straight to the krautrock side of heavy prog in the '70s, bypassing the whole Yes/ELP pop-prog thing.

The egg lady at the farmers' market says that as the hens get older, they get better at laying, producing more and larger eggs.
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 10:13am Cecile:

rev, I avoided the Krautrock because I hated Yes/ELP, etc so much. Which means I am still catching up.

I still have an unreasonable soft spot for King Crimson because they were darker and less enamored with themselves.

veg.pho sounds great. BTW, no idea where the idea was behind the Rev.Turnip Druid alias, but I used it for something around 1984/85. Luckily, some things weren't forgotten in time...

The salvo that sealed his fate "“I did two ELP albums but I’ve chosen not to do any more because I can’t honestly say I love them. ..."

-OK buddy I can't stand ELP as much as the next guy but you already produced 2 of their records, it's like letting the mob in a little bit-you can't turn your back now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/26/13 10:26am tim from champaign:

Last week I inherited my friends record collection that was filled with Yes, Rush, BOC, Priest, Dio, Halen, ELO, Queen and some serious donkers in there too. Yes is new territory for me. I'm a little scared but I'm diving in. I know all the AOR cuts but haven't ventured in the deep cuts.
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 10:26am Cecile:

Steven Wilson is not capable of love.
That's why he's a great songwriter. hahahhaha

I hope he got a good paycheck .
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 10:26am Rev. Turnip Druid:

Cecile: that's about when I fell off the PT wagon. In Absentia has great material but I really wanted to hear a lighter touch on the post-production side, it should've been more rough. I heard some stuff that came later and he'd clearly gone all Crazy-Legs Dracula Artiste on that shit. The Delerium-label LPs (sky moves sideways etc) are my far faves...
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 10:27am Cecile:

Apart from the first 2..

Priest up to Point of Entry is pretty solid and choice. And I like a lot of Point of Entry, too.
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 10:28am Cecile:

hahahah, turnip. That early stuff is pretty spotless, though. Excellent records.
Avatar Tue. 2/26/13 10:28am Cheri Pi:

That sounds pretty good Tim FC- just put the Yes & Rush on the curb and you should be ok ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/26/13 10:30am Pete from Boston (and NJ):

It's good to hear that Jersey City sanctions chickens. I was just following a story in comparatively bucolic Westwood, where in discussions over regulating the town's 36 chicken-keeping households, some have called the town "too dense" for chicken raising!

On the ELP side, I admit to a soft-spot for TARKUS, the one everyone hates. Because it's completely ridiculous. From the artwork to the tunes; it's a salad-shooter of WTF-ery.

- Research on Music & the Brain such as recounted in the books by Oliver Sacks & Daniel Levitin
- shows that it's about the particular Balance between the Familiar & the Unexpected that makes Music appeal to us
- which seems obvious once stated...

- So then - I guess it's a question of what strikes that Balance for one's particular Brain - !
...as opposed to Other's Brains...

...the whole Prog Question...

...If you watch 'Filth & the Fury' about the Sex Pistols - you see a good example of the suggestion always made that Punk (mid-late 1970's) was a reaction to Rick Wakeman playing organ w/ a paint roller
...but I'm nort sure I ever saw it like that.
...The 'June 1st 1974' album w/ KevinAyers JohnCale Nico is more 'Undergrtound' or 'Alternative' than Green Day
...To put it another way: For me - there was always a Pistols-Iggy-John Cale-Bowie-Robert Fripp connection.
- It's more a question of MAINSTREAM VS. Underground Intelligentsia - &/or - StreetReal Thang.
- Anyhow - ! In this era now - we have the typically *PostModern* phenomenon of it being more about picking & choosing from Genres than one specific Genre being the Kewl One - like it was back in the Modern Era.
...This is the (Post??-Post?)PostModern World...

The Wondermints are good fun; apart from making Brian Wilson a viable touring option they have a sense of humour. Viz, the track on Bali called 'In and Around Greg Lake' figures Yes & KC.

Re: "i live for hearing something new, but is that an oddity? are most people into the familiar?"

I think there's a certain amount of conditioning involved. You have to find reward in the unknown in order to really want it, no? New can be hard.

I had a co-worker tell me once that his preferred music is any music he already knows. And I get it, because it's much simpler that way.

But as for me, my favorite genre of music is "surprise."

- Martin King (actually younger than Malcolm!) was - & still is

- but Malcom X really helped us get up to speed w/ the fact that History is written by the Winners & you should educate yourself about it - & think for yourself - !

Brian - funny you should bring that up. I'm in the middle of reading UMW, and I've been trying to remember for two days where the line "starless and bible black" had entered into the rock lexicon.

According to the notes in the front of the book, Dylan himself read "First Voice" and a couple of other roles at its premiere staging. I remember the movie being beautiful. Sometimes movies that take an impressionistic stage production and literalize it can be disappointing (Equus, Warhorse), and I'd want to see the movie UMW again before I decided whether or not to put it in that category.

Brian, exactly. If I was going to stage it, it would be actors sitting on stools dressed in black, lit only when speaking and then only head and shoulders. Maybe an occasional tableaux; Mrs. Ogmore-Pritchard admonishing her two husbands in dreamland, that kinda thing.
