my sympathies, drummer. now you know how infuriating it can be to watch a.j. burnette pitch on a regular basis. i'm surprised roy halladay didn't stuff him into a suitcase and throw him into lake ontario at some point.

You forget that I was in NYC for the entirety of Burnett's career with the Yankees. He is the classic "small-game" pitcher. Wins in April and against lesser teams. Once the klieg lights go on, he melts.

@still b/p was it a stump grinder?
Avatar Fri. 10/4/13 9:53am still b/p:

Well, that was certainly its mission, but I couldn't accurately/knowledgeably ID it. Unit with the saw disc on an arm that can angle thisaway and thataway. I believe the stump would say yes, yes it was a stump grinder. (Stump Grinder would be a good performer or DJ name.)
Avatar    Fri. 10/4/13 9:56am Brian in UK:

It is diamond tipped and quite unlike a chain saw. Very effective in getting down to the root of the matter..

Avatar Fri. 10/4/13 10:00am Doug Schulkind:

Straddling the line between new and old, Meridian Brothers’ mischievous blend of Latin rhythms and psychedelic grooves is the creation of Eblis Álvarez, one of the key figures of the experimental music scene in Bogota. As with all of the Meridian Brother’s releases, every instrument on ‘Deseperanza’ was played and recorded by Eblis himself.

A true avant-garde guitar player and composer he also plays in Mario Galeano’s band Frente Cumbiero and was one of the 42 musicians involved in the recording of Ondatrópica, released this summer through Soundway Records.

Meridian Brothers started back in 1998 with Eblis experimenting with alternative ways of playing instruments and electronic media. Heavily influenced by Latin rock (Argentinian in particular) these early recordings were distributed by cassette on the underground music market in Bogota. It was in 1999, after joining Mario Galeano’s Ensamble Polifónico Vallenato that Eblis first became interested in the tropical music of Colombia and began working these new influences it in to the Meridian Brothers.

Another key period is his development was his time spent in Denmark at the Royal Danish Academy of Music and the DIEM (Danish Institute of Electronic Music). It was during this stage Eblis started using more sophisticated and intricate techniques in both electronics and signal processing.

Eblis returned to Bogota in 2008, joining a burgeoning music scene with cumbia, salsa and currulao all being explored by a new generation of Colombian musicians. 2009’s "Meridian Brothers VI” goes deep into tropical sounds of the 60s and 70s in Colombia and integrates other influences such as highlife, Ethiopian music, surf and Peruvian and Colombian cumbia.

It was around this stage that Meridian Brothers made their first appearances as a live band with Damien Ponce (Percussion), Maria Valencia (clarinet, saxophone and synthesizers), Alejandro Forero (Keyboards), Cesar Quevedo (bass) and Eblis Alvarez (vocals, guitar and electronics).

There will always be a soft spot in my heart for teams that beat the Yankees in the World Series. Even though the Pirates crushed my Oriole heart in '71 and '79, I still love them for defeating the Yankees in '60. (Don't worry. I can handle this with medication.)

Horrifically, Winchester died at age 33, the loser in a one-man game of Russian roulette. He never up his service revolver.

The GIVE THE DRUMMER SOME pledge thingy has been stuck on 2% for a freakishly long time. I humbly request that you give it a swift kick.

I swiftly request that you give it a humble kick. Whatever works for you.

That's the kind of news you never like to hear about an artist, Doug (Winchester).
Avatar    Fri. 10/4/13 11:08am pacific standard simon:

Unless maybe Ted Nugent had a hunting accident.
Avatar    Fri. 10/4/13 11:10am Stanley:

@ βrian - re the hair being your helmet. People often look at me worringly when its raining and they say they're going to get wet and I tell them not to worry, their skin will keep them dry!
Avatar Fri. 10/4/13 11:10am Doug Schulkind:

Winchester is an ironic name for a fellow who shot himself. Worse, one of the tracks on this album is called "Both Barrels."
Avatar Fri. 10/4/13 11:10am Doug Schulkind:

Greetings Artie!
Avatar Fri. 10/4/13 11:13am still b/p:

Hm. An organ-playing Hammond, and a firearm-fatality Winchester.
Avatar Fri. 10/4/13 11:15am βrian:

Is that on Miasma Records?
Avatar    Fri. 10/4/13 11:17am Alex In Illinois:

Lem Winchester, an ex-cop? So was Eddy Money. Before that, there was Washboard Sam who did the reverse. Musician, then cop. Before that, Captain Francis O'Neill who did both at the same time.
Avatar    Fri. 10/4/13 11:21am pacific standard simon:

I forgot about Eddie Money, Alex. The former Chief of Police and Mayor of San Francisco, Frank Jordan, was a double for Spike Jones. Very disconcerting for some of us.

Good day Admiral Doug and all the floaty toys at sea.

Chickens are laying agin. Yeeeehaow!
Avatar Fri. 10/4/13 11:25am Doug Schulkind:

Is which on Miasma, βrian? The answer is "no."

Hi there Carmichael!
Avatar    Fri. 10/4/13 11:27am Brian in UK:

Doug, is this the same Djelimady Tounkara that Banning Eyre wrote about in 'In Griot Time'?
Avatar Fri. 10/4/13 11:28am Doug Schulkind:

Yep, same Djelimady Tounkara!
Avatar Fri. 10/4/13 11:29am Doug Schulkind:

I have spelled his name exactly as it appears on the LP cover, but most spell it Djelimady.
Avatar Fri. 10/4/13 11:29am Doug Schulkind:

I had Banning Eyre on my show 25 years ago.
Avatar    Fri. 10/4/13 11:30am Alex In Illinois:

IF it is spelled "Djali Madi" that suggests that the "Djali" part of his name is the title "Jali" or "Djali" that appears in Griotes names.
Avatar Fri. 10/4/13 11:30am Doug Schulkind:

On Banning's website, there is a photo of him jamming with Djelimady in 2002: www.banningeyre.com
Avatar    Fri. 10/4/13 11:31am Alex In Illinois:

I meant: ". . . in Griote's names."
Avatar Fri. 10/4/13 11:31am northguineahills:

Sorry, busy w/ work (I did spend (9:00-9:30 listening to Keili)
Avatar    Fri. 10/4/13 11:32am Brian in UK:

Djelimady Tounkara is the glue that bound alot of the music at that time.
Avatar Fri. 10/4/13 11:33am Doug Schulkind:

Freeform means never having to say you're sorry, northguineahills!
Avatar    Fri. 10/4/13 11:33am Alex In Illinois:

Dang my grammar! I mean: "Griotes' names."
Avatar    Fri. 10/4/13 11:33am Brian in UK:

@ngh Congratulations on your freedom.

Now we are back in Africa again. THat was strange.
Avatar Fri. 10/4/13 11:36am Doug Schulkind:

The stream has been quite unstable this past week. I think I need to reboot the software. I will do so AFTER Uncle Michael's Hinky Dinky Time show, in 24 minutes. Uncle Michael's playlist page is here: wfmu.org...

That was the cultural exchange portion of Give The Drummer Radio.

I'd buy that for a premium-sized pledge.

Oh God, a GTDR t-shirt. It will take me about 12 years to come up with an image, Uncle Michael. Just shoot me.

Avatar Fri. 10/4/13 11:47am Doug Schulkind:

Has anyone out there heard of this film/soundtrack before? I LOVE it.
Avatar    Fri. 10/4/13 11:50am Uncle Michael:

Heard of it...not heard it. I will amend that.
