@ Billy Jam, you are awesome!

Thanks for listening to W F M U _ shout out to ALF, WUHN and Spidermank to whom this show is dedicated - missed u last week - hope your gig went well Spidey
  Fri. 1/10/14 7:03pm Benny in BK:

wish this show was longer but will settle for the one hour :)

I have a strong feeling that 2014 is going to be a great year for everyone - well except for Chris Christie
Avatar Fri. 1/10/14 7:12pm Caryn:

Continuing SUW's theme: this show is definitely not overrated. It deserves every ounce of praise it gets.
Avatar Fri. 1/10/14 7:14pm Billy Jam:

ah thanks Caryn!

Really trippy show, mane....
Avatar Fri. 1/10/14 7:17pm Billy Jam:

and continuing in Caryn's not overrated theme I believe that Jimmy Penguin and Naive Ted and the VMM crew's talents are not overrated but underrated - they rule…ALso NOT overrated is the BBC "Sherlock" series - loved the latest episode in which him and Watson get drunk
  Fri. 1/10/14 7:17pm ADA:

indeed, very triped out mix here!
Avatar Fri. 1/10/14 7:18pm Caryn:

@Billy Jam: the drunken deducting was excellent. "Yellow... sitty thing?"
Avatar Fri. 1/10/14 7:19pm Billy Jam:

as well as watching recommended GIFS with this music I suggest smoking a bit of hash too :)
Avatar Fri. 1/10/14 7:20pm Billy Jam:

at Caryn - that show (which I only caught up with in past few weeks - had not seen it from beginning) is really really good - so well written and filmed and acted -
  Fri. 1/10/14 7:22pm LovecraftDude888:

Ben. Cumberbatch is underrated, but Tinker Tailor he was in was sadly way way overrated. The orig. BBC thing is a billion times better
  Fri. 1/10/14 7:23pm Benny in BK:

had not heard of Tinker Tailor
Avatar Fri. 1/10/14 7:24pm Caryn:

Cumberbatch is underrated outside the internet. I consider both versions of "Tinker Tailor..." to be excellent.
Avatar Fri. 1/10/14 7:25pm TheMarmot:

Big Ups Billy Jam! Diggin this show hardcore, lovin the heavy groove gettin laid down. Perfection.
Avatar    Fri. 1/10/14 7:26pm spidermank:

cant believe i missed the first 8.54 mins Damn..
massive thanks for the dedication Billy , it means a lot mate.
Your show allways sorts mi ead out , bigstyle.
and yeah cheers i had a effing blast DJing , it got my taste back forrit again.
this penguiness is on it on it onit
  Fri. 1/10/14 7:26pm LovecraftDude888:

I was more into the Alec Guinness version by far...but the new one is ok...but some irritating changes to the novel etc. But Cumber is great....though they went all PC and made his character gay which was not required
  Fri. 1/10/14 7:28pm LovecraftDude888:

I went to special screening of the new Tinker Tailor S. spy last year with Gary Oldman in person..that was kool!
  Fri. 1/10/14 7:28pm ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

Haven't heard this in a long while. DJ Shiftee getting busy on the C1 for the first time.
Avatar Fri. 1/10/14 7:28pm Billy Jam:

hey ADA thanks for tuning in……..Welcome SPidey and thanks for the shouts on last show playlist….hey The Marmot (with no name, rapper) - Yes we are on the air…….Tonight and tom. in NYC Action Bronson at Irving Plaza…..tonight in SF, CA Jazzy Jeff & Shorkut @ Mighty, tom. Midnite Cru Deejays @ Ill Perata in SF Mission District, and Sunday Golden Chyld in San Jose
  Fri. 1/10/14 7:28pm LovecraftDude888:

still haven't heard any MC900FTjesus on heahhh
Avatar Fri. 1/10/14 7:29pm Caryn:

I think the change in sexual orientation was a bit unnecessary, but I could see their reasoning behind it. No PC motives.
Avatar Fri. 1/10/14 7:29pm Billy Jam:

good call LovecraftDude888 - I even have an old interview with him that I should dig up…..
  Fri. 1/10/14 7:30pm ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

Buck 50 Cutters and Skizo!
  Fri. 1/10/14 7:31pm LovecraftDude888:

really kool! I haven't really heard of him in ages but...he did some great stuff years ago. I was shocked he retired from music...in a sense. Maybe not, in another. Killer Inside me and that whole album is one of my faves from that time, and I wasn't even a big hip hop guy....or hybrid or whatever he did
  Fri. 1/10/14 7:31pm LovecraftDude888:

Caryn..yeah I guess, maybe the director wanted to differentiate his version from the original BBC one and novel for some reason
Avatar Fri. 1/10/14 7:33pm Billy Jam:

so he retired huh? - should dig up his stuff as I do have it in my collection - and his DJ was the shit too (DJ Zero I think was his name)
Avatar Fri. 1/10/14 7:33pm TheRapperWithNoName:

Big ups Action Bronson, hit the G-Pen ;)
Avatar Fri. 1/10/14 7:34pm Billy Jam:

makin me itch
  Fri. 1/10/14 7:35pm LovecraftDude888:

Yeah, I kept reading that Mc900Ft retired from music, mainly, or at least from doing records and stuff, at least 15 years ago or close. I think sometimes he would show up to do surprise sets down there in Texas, but otherwise.,,,no more recorded music. Weird. I think he felt burned by the music biz or just
got tired of it.
Avatar Fri. 1/10/14 7:36pm Caryn:

@Lovecraft: I seem to recall 3 reasons explained by the screenwriter and Cumberbatch
1) the oft-joked about ubiquitousness of homosexuals in the British spy community at the time
2) giving the character some added shading
3) making the character more secretive, thus reflecting the overall theme and mood of secretiveness.
  Fri. 1/10/14 7:36pm LovecraftDude888:

I know WLIR played the hell out of Welcome to My Dream when it came out, it was on the air a lot or the singles were then, but that was ages ago..what was that, 1989 to 1990 or so?
Avatar Fri. 1/10/14 7:37pm TheRapperWithNoName:

I dug the video for "If I only had a brain..." but thats all I ever heard by him. Was a wee lad back then, watchin videos on The Box channel pay per view music videos hahaha. I know im not the only one who got bummed out at 10pm when it switched over to the playboy channel and turned to fuzz.
  Fri. 1/10/14 7:38pm LovecraftDude888:

Caryn: I see, I missed that explanation of Peter Guillam's character change in the new film...I gotcha. That makes some sense then.
Avatar Fri. 1/10/14 7:39pm Billy Jam:

I know that today's show is a tad on the weird experimental tip - but that to me proves the rich diversity of this hip-hop music - and with this one hour a week show I try to cover the broad range of this wonderfully rich art form - so I appreciate all for listening in each week - THANK YOU……Oh and other night I had a dream (seriously) in which I was told to go back to doing 3 hours - so I gotta do that
  Fri. 1/10/14 7:40pm LovecraftDude888:

TheRapper...wow this s. is funny as hell! This is one of his I didn't know that well! Watching it now...so classic
Avatar Fri. 1/10/14 7:40pm Billy Jam:

The BOX was the YouTube of olden times - except you had to pay
Avatar Fri. 1/10/14 7:40pm Caryn:

Looking forward to the DJ Quest stuff next week, Billy Jam.
  Fri. 1/10/14 7:41pm Richard from Venezuela:

Happy new year Billy Jam.
Avatar Fri. 1/10/14 7:41pm Billy Jam:

u too Richard!
  Fri. 1/10/14 7:41pm LovecraftDude888:

Didn't have The Box....but I do recall watching the infamous U68 UHF TV show in the 80s mid to late....then it would turn into Cinemax pay at night and go fuzz except for some under-music bed....and ghost of porno films only imagined otherwise alas
Avatar Fri. 1/10/14 7:42pm Blacktooth:

@Billy Jam: I know it's a lot of work, but you gotta get back to the 3 hour spot. In the wink of a young girls eye...
  Fri. 1/10/14 7:43pm LovecraftDude888:

Which was the NJN New Jersey Network at that point on UHF...oh how pathetic. I had a shite black and white TV in my bedroom...so lame I know
Avatar    Fri. 1/10/14 7:43pm spidermank:

we have a dream........
Avatar Fri. 1/10/14 7:44pm Billy Jam:

you are right Blacktooth - I have got to do that - as one hour is good but limiting in terms of stretching out - like in having guests come on and play more music that just the number of tracks u can squeeze in in one hour…...
Avatar    Fri. 1/10/14 7:44pm spidermank:

this set is deeeeeeeeeep
so good loud
  Fri. 1/10/14 7:44pm LovecraftDude888:

can get MC900FTJ out of retirement hehe maybe not
  Fri. 1/10/14 7:45pm LovecraftDude888:

god that was 1991 that album...a bit later than I recall brain is going!
Avatar Fri. 1/10/14 7:45pm Blacktooth:

I mean, I'll happily take the hour, but it just ain't enough room for you. You gotta get those elbows into it.
Avatar Fri. 1/10/14 7:47pm TheRapperWithNoName:

im really lovin this set, Billy. Experimental is good! I remember when i first found portishead labeled under hip hop, definitely sent me on a mental 'journey of discovery' to say the least. Cheers to broadening horizons!
  Fri. 1/10/14 7:48pm Tommy K:

Man this show is amazing! First time tuning in...thanks WFMU!
  Fri. 1/10/14 7:48pm LovecraftDude888:

Portishead was mainly considered Triphop no? I guess? I think
  Fri. 1/10/14 7:49pm LovecraftDude888:

Or primarily ambient techno triphop etc.
  Fri. 1/10/14 7:51pm Tommy K:

What kind/genre of music is this? How do you categorize it? I like it but it is not like the usual hiphop I hear
  Fri. 1/10/14 7:51pm ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

Is this a live set recorded by Albert or is it on a album?
Avatar    Fri. 1/10/14 7:52pm spidermank:

3 hours of this ? we would surely never be the same again?
bringgg it onnnn
heres to ever changing horizons , luvatcha all.
thanks so much Billy for having the magic touch .
i fuckin love you man.
  Fri. 1/10/14 7:52pm LovecraftDude888:

speaking of which, has anybody seen the new version of The Killer INside Me the movie? of the Jim Thompson book? is it any good?
  Fri. 1/10/14 7:53pm LovecraftDude888:

with Jessica Alba...I hear it was over the top fecked up
Avatar Fri. 1/10/14 7:55pm Caryn:

I think it's quite good. Especially Casey Affleck as Lou Ford. It is quite brutal, and changes some things from the book, but I did like the mood and a lot of the acting.
  Fri. 1/10/14 7:56pm LovecraftDude888:

give em a friendly smile AND A HANDSHAKE! ha, thanks Caryn..will go avail of it soon
Avatar Fri. 1/10/14 7:58pm Blacktooth:

@Tommy K: I believe this form of traditional song structure is referred to as "demonically enraptured mindphuck."
Avatar Fri. 1/10/14 7:58pm Billy Jam:

@ ALF - it is from his album but sounds like it was a live real time session recording - have to ask him to know for sure - will do that and let u know here on the playlist next week -OK?
@ ALL special shout out to YOU for listening and to Mr Fine Wine, who is up next, for board op'ing today - I will be back next week with more music - less talk :)
PS -the only drawback (for me) of doing a 3 hour show is all the editing out of curses I have to do in pre-production (den rap songs have lots of curses sometimes :)
Avatar    Sat. 1/11/14 12:11pm fred:

May your dreams come true this year, Billy. (especially the one about the 3 hours show)
Avatar Sat. 1/11/14 2:08pm Billy Jam:

thanks Fred! - and will ask DnZ and/or Dawgisht to contact you about their music - @ ALF - followed up with Albert Mathias who confirmed that yes it was a live recording
