As always when it comes to John Cage, I request 4'33.
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 3:46pm Simon P:

tuning in from Uk, your show recommended by j Herveg...That Terry Riley timeless and amazing
  Thu. 9/5/13 3:46pm Morton:

4'33" on a 33 1/3 played at 45
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 3:47pm Loren:

I wonder if Station Manager Ken would have fit if Fabio played 4'33"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/5/13 3:49pm davex:

@Morton: Now you're talking!
@Loren: A lot of people probably would.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/5/13 3:52pm Ike:

I heard there is (or used to be?) something at FMU called The Robot that would get upset and call the DJ if there was more than x seconds of silence. But a live version of 4'33" with lots of coughing and other audience racket would be fine. I think Kenny G. used to play one, maybe?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/5/13 3:53pm steve:

from the internet: Originally entitled “Performance Mix” it was later renamed in honor of Cage’s Italian landlady Signora Fontana.
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 3:54pm Loren:

What does a radio-friendly version of 4'33" sound like?.. tummy grumbles, flatulence, squeaking chairs, Scott Williams wrestling with Fabio, sinus congestion...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/5/13 3:55pm steve:

Ike - vaguely related, i remember when Kenny G did Hour of Pain he did at least one full hour of total silence. at the beginning of the hour he recounted discussing his plans to do so with Station Manager Ken. dont remember hearing about The Robot but i barely remember it
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 3:55pm Loren:

I always thought it was in some reference to Lucio Fontana...
  Thu. 9/5/13 3:55pm Morton:

Better: play ASLSP

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/5/13 3:56pm Andrew Waterloo:

The radio version is more interesting than the Mp3 version.

This Cage/Tudor narrative always reminds me of Sherman and Mr. Peabody...

oh wow...I remember this from last year, I think. I was in my car driving down the west side highway, I believe.
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 4:02pm david_:

I love "Indeterminacy."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/5/13 4:03pm northguineahills:

Which version of Indeterminacy is this?. I have III and IV on vinyl (as well as vol1 & 2 of IV.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/5/13 4:03pm tim from champaign:

Great, idea, Morton.

Great stuff today Fabio!

I was listening to Fabio on WFMU when David Tudor said to me, "John, can I have those french fries if you're not going to eat them?"

  Thu. 9/5/13 4:18pm Morton:

Didn't The Fall have a song called "No Xmas for John Cage"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/5/13 4:23pm Carmichael:

John Cage died on my birthday. From a cosmic standpoint, that might mean something.

thanks for the cage 101st celebration, fabio!

Big John Cage touring exhibition in the UK last year-this is a fine tribute to his musical legacy
  Thu. 9/5/13 4:29pm Morton:

Simon: Is the touring exhibition big? Or is it an exhibition about Big John Cage?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/5/13 4:30pm DCE:

this drummer reminds me of myself...weird/incomplete fills...

we're not talking Wayne here
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/5/13 4:33pm Kurt Gottschalk:

i caught a touring exhibit in prague last year, film and music installations plus tribute works by loads of other composers. and a beautiful film of merce c in his wheelchair following dance instructions written by cage with paint on the wheels so he could leave a trail on the paper-covered floor.
  Thu. 9/5/13 4:33pm Morton:

Simon P: You said it! But which John said, “It's getting to be ri-goddamn-diculous.”?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/5/13 4:34pm Kurt Gottschalk:

i think it's supposed to come to the states eventually.

Wikipedia: "While in prison on a drug offence, Stevens read the Willard Manus novel Mott the Hoople about an eccentric who works in a circus freak show, and determined to use it as a band name."

Awesome for a band name! And in the joint?--street cred!

taxman. hands down.
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 5:31pm Matt from Springfield:

Yep. "It's All Too Much", YS. "Within You, Without You", Sgt. Pepper's.
NOT "I Me Mine", that was a short session extended by Phil Spector, not a good one!
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 5:32pm glenn:

even though paul plays the solo on taxman.
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 5:32pm Matt from Springfield:

All Things Must Pass!! That's the peak of George songs. So so so very many wonderful spiritual rock songs on that. A *good* Phil Spector contribution.
  Thu. 9/5/13 5:33pm dc waters:

"Don't Bother Me" is a very early Harrison that's a fave of mine.
  Thu. 9/5/13 5:34pm nic:

it was a super show
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 5:34pm Matt from Springfield:

@glenn: One of Paul's very best guitar solos! "Dear Prudence" or "Back in the USSR" probably has his best drumming (with The Beatles anyway).
  Thu. 9/5/13 5:34pm reno:

Fabio, Clay's deliberately wasting a sixth of your show.
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 5:35pm Matt from Springfield:

The overall picture is still being painted. Please come back in several months.
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 5:35pm Matt from Springfield:

Senate probably in favor of Syria strike; House probably against as of now.
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 5:36pm Matt from Springfield:

You're right--it is a "downer", in every case. No good solution available.

Give Putin noogies until he gives Assad detention for a month.
  Thu. 9/5/13 5:38pm J-nO:

Clay has his own show, which sucks. Why does he get to waste your time, as well? Give him the boot.
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 5:38pm Matt from Springfield:

@fleep: That's actually part of my imagined idealistic "peace settlement" for Syria--split into 4 or more countries, the Alawites/Shiites have their own state, but Assad must be exiled to Russia or someplace similar.
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 5:38pm Berg:

French not being nice to Americans? That's unheard of..
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 5:39pm glenn:

the big problem, as i see it, is that about 5 minutes after nato bombs syria, assad will unleash chemical weapon hell on the citizens of syria.

Oh, new bed music drummer, who are you?!
Avatar Thu. 9/5/13 5:48pm Matt from Springfield:

@tired: That's a very relevant movie for the Mideast situation. I watched that in a philosophy class, as it represents both existentialism and reincarnation well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/5/13 5:49pm Ike:

There IS a lot of heavy breathing. Or maybe it just seems that way because it's memorable.

I just remembered where I heard that drumbeat you keep playing. It's in those horrible Southern Comfort ads, isn't it? That is a disturbing image.

Oh wow: "Stanley is mentioned by his first name in the song "Who Needs the Peace Corps?" by Frank Zappa and The Mothers of Invention, which first appeared on the band's 1968 album We're Only in It for the Money ("I'll go to Frisco, buy a wig and sleep on Owsley's floor.")"
