I love this Terry Riley. I used to mix this in w/ Pan Sonic years ago......

hello my fellow Failures! I'm so happy to spend the entire show with you all.

Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 3:22pm northguineahills:

I also love how recorded "You're no good"
for a Philly disco opening around the same time he recorded Poppy Nogood.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 3:22pm Ike:

Any time an annoying pop earworm gets stuck in my head, I just give it the Terry Riley treatment inside my brain, mentally looping fragments of it over and over, and it helps.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 3:23pm common:

that's a good idea, Ike.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 3:23pm the glowing one:

Hello Hello to you to you all all
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 3:24pm northguineahills:

You're a brilliant one, Ike!

That's a great survival tip Ike1
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 3:25pm northguineahills:

And we can count on Fabio to play this track all the way out!
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 3:25pm Rich in Washington:

What Ike said. My brain loops stuff all the time anyway, so stuff like this, Steve Reich's stuff, etc. really appeals to me in a way and probably really irritates the shit out of ordinary people.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 3:25pm tim from champaign:

No way! I thought this was Christian Marclay or Fab playing with 2 45s of the same song. What era Terry Riley is this?
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 3:26pm Cecile:

Fabio, you should really look through your playlists and do a top 40 of all time for your show. This would be in the top 10 for sure.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 3:26pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Very Favorite Riley, right there.

Greetings, magical animals.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 3:28pm northguineahills:

I think he recorded it in 1968ish,
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 3:29pm Rich in Washington:

This and Richard Trythall's Hommagio au Jerry Lee Lewis are my favorite pop cutups.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 3:29pm Cecile:

its' a great track to begin with
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 3:30pm Rich in Washington:

It is, Cecile. The original song should've been a hit. It's lovely in its own right.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 3:30pm steve:

does there exist a list of disco-sound-collage or disco-tape-loop tracks somewhere on the nets? i love stuff like this
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 3:31pm northguineahills:

Agreed, Rich & Cecile!
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 3:32pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

WAAH! The ear-worm! She dances back into my bony incus!
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 3:34pm cklequ:

What kind of jerk charges $3.99 shipping on a $1463 CD?
(I guess the same kind that sells a CD for $1463)
  Thu. 11/14/13 3:34pm ?:

(lurk lurk lurk)
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 3:34pm Cecile:

done in 1968, released in 2000, though.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 3:37pm tim from champaign:

I re-watched Zoolander recently. Fabio's bed music gives me the image of Fabio strutting through the WFMU studios with scarf flying behind him, the FMU staffers lower their sunglasses to admire Fab as he walks by in slow motion.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 3:40pm Cecile:

Is Clay Hansel?
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 3:42pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Loving this like mad plus.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 3:44pm tim from champaign:

Yeah! Totally Cecile!

You're killing me, Cecile!

"I can derelicte my own ass!"
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 3:49pm northguineahills:

@Cecile: *snert* (crap, I need a tissue now).
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 3:50pm Ike:

Just the other day, I was reminded of one of Cecile's greatest hits, from 2012: "Yes [Friends with Benefits] is a great movie. I especially like the scene where Mila Kunis puts on the head of a dead ram and cries out to the faceless ocean in grief. And Russell Brand was also good in it."

Laughed my buttocks off.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 3:50pm Cecile:

There was only 15 minutes of funny in that movie, but it was funnier than most whole movies.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 3:51pm Cecile:

hahahahahahaha, I forgot about that one.
That poor lady.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 3:53pm Ike:

Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 3:53pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

AH, these must be zoolander references. I've had no idea what's been happening in this sandbox for the past several minutes. That, plus the wobbly jazz causing my face to destroy itself...
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 3:54pm Cecile:

She kept talking about Mila Kunis constantly on the comments board.

I kind of lost it at some point.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 3:54pm Cecile:

it might have been some underpaid studio intern in disguise, too.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 3:58pm Ike:

No, no, no, that disturbed individual has been a mainstay around here for years. IIRC Ken & Pseu both banned "her" from their comments at some point. You were notable for having the best response to "her" I'd EVER seen.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 4:00pm Cecile:

I went back and read it. Yikes. I was on a roll.
I do like the Troll Acres concept, thoguh.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 4:01pm northguineahills:

Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 4:02pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 4:02pm Ike:

Troll Acres!!! That was also outstanding! Troll Acres needs its own jingle.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 4:02pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

couple o' necks!
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 4:03pm Cecile:

my favorite line from that is:
"I am hoping that Tyler Perry pulls off his wig, and leads the cast in a hearty chorus of "it's raining men." at the film's conclusion. "
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 4:03pm Cecile:

The Nicks!

Play the whole thing Fab!
  Thu. 11/14/13 4:04pm The Black Lung:

How now Brown Cow from here in sunny (that means freezing) Northern England.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 4:04pm Chris from DC:

Cecile, John Allen did this week. It's great.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 4:05pm Cecile:

cool, Chris. Gotta get that one.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 4:06pm fearson:

gathering #strength from fabio upon tuning into the show, but only after my #failure to create my own acceptable playlist
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 4:07pm tim from champaign:

Man, Dubble Bubble gum is bullshit.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 4:07pm Rich in Washington:

For some reason, the bumper music makes me think of Beyond the Black Rainbow.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 4:08pm BigLankyGeordie:

Yikes, sounds like I need my disco trousers on tonight?
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 4:08pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

I am a veteran of the roller-disco, and I am not ashamed. And yes, it does.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 4:09pm Cecile:

I roller-skated twice at the disco. Roller-skating is terrifying. There are no toe-picks.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 4:10pm BigLankyGeordie:

Roller Disco represents the high-point of Western Civilisation. Undeniably true. Anyone who doubts that is a numpty.
  Thu. 11/14/13 4:11pm Óskar Jökull:

Damn. I know this track. What's it called?
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 4:11pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

I was too young to be mega-suave at the roller disco, but I did my bit. And it was definitely the pinnacle of human culture. The Geordie speaks truth.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 4:12pm Cecile:

I love roller-disco music, though. I am a sucker for that. I roller-skate in my mind.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 4:12pm Cecile:

there should be a WFMU roller-disco meetup.
And an ambulance nearby.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 4:13pm steve:

im with you Cecile - roller disco is great in theory, terrifying in practice
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 4:13pm Cecile:

...that copy of Bruce Springstone live in Bedrock.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 4:14pm kirk from beer city usa:

Fabio, the die-hard diggers will on the lookout for the SPACE record.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 4:14pm Cecile:

ice is just much less nasty to fall on than wood over concrete.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 4:14pm steve:

you could suggest "go in early and collect all 5000 copies of Blondie Parallel Lines"
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 4:14pm Mike East:

Does Earwax have a table at the record fair?
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 4:14pm fearson:

omg i'm actually going to be in NY for the record fair. this is TOO #STRONG
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 4:15pm tim from champaign:

or Mel Henke records, kirk.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 4:16pm northguineahills:

I picked up that Space record in 1997 based on the absurd space suits the band was wearing and the crazy moogs....
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 4:16pm Cecile:

are there 900,000 CD copies of the first Gin Blossoms album? Because you gotta have that.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 4:17pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Cecile: I do recall that special brand of terror when you realize some idiot's skate wheel had coughed up its ball-bearings, and those killer things went scattering across the rink, sending many of us brave strutting soldiers to our deaths, to the tune of "shine a little love" by ELO...
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 4:17pm kirk from beer city usa:

oh man, check this cover out, tim:
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 4:18pm Cecile:

"I Spit on Your Grave - the jazzy version!"
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 4:22pm tim from champaign:

Wow! Do you have that, kirk? I don't think Ol' Man Bowowser has it.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 4:23pm Cecile:

"I don't dig getting bossed around by a chick"
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 4:28pm kirk from beer city usa:

tim: no, I'd never seen that one before. speaking of bowser, he once gave me "la dolce henke" (on CD, but still, a nice item to get).
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 4:34pm tim from champaign:

"la dolce henke" is one I always keep my eyes peeled for. I loved that before putting on "la dolce henke" bowzer would say "well, since we're all among men" even if women were present.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 4:41pm kirk from beer city usa:

ha! that's great.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 4:47pm InBrkly:

@kirk thanks for turning me on to eil.com. great resource.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 4:48pm BigLankyGeordie:

Yes, here we go again - spandex boys and girls lets get twirling - woooohhhhhh!

nice one, Ben.

This will be the first year in several years I will not be able to make it to the record fair. Last year of course did not happen because of the storm.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 5:05pm Fredericks:

Fabio- I just saw Tatsuya Nakatani last week performing with Eugene Chadbourne. That man is a ball of musical fire.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 5:06pm Lucy:

Carnivorous Ducks of Doom does a RAD cover of this track
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 5:10pm northguineahills:

This might be the first time I attend the record fair. It usually occurred when I was either broke or out of town. I think I'll make this one.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 5:12pm Mike East:

This will also be my first time attending the record fair. My daughter's as well.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 5:15pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

I have yet to make it to the bloody record fair [same reasons as NGH] - this year still not employed enough. But dammit, 2014...
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 5:16pm Dan:

Come on fab, I need to nod my head here man
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 5:17pm Green Mountain Man Mark:

Cool NGH:Are you going to volunteer? it is always a blast to help volunteer for some hours at the record fair. Lot of perks to that. I usually provide brawn of lifting and loading equipment and the exhausting bins of old records to sell.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 5:19pm steve:

this is the first time i'll miss the record fair since mid 2000s... just trying to save up money for other fun things this year. oh well.
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 5:19pm Chris from DC:

Seems like I'm always saying next year with regard to the record fair, but, well, next year.

I'll be attending the rat pee soaked "Clay Pigeon style" record fair of abandoned street gems! It won't be my first time either. Tenderloin, here I come!

Depends on work that week. I'll offer to volunteer once I purchase some platters. (I can schlep).
Avatar Thu. 11/14/13 5:30pm Lucy:
