Show sounding great Mike! Wow lord john, havent heard them in a while.
  Thu. 1/30/14 4:24am P-90:

@ Mellow Mike S.: this time of night is perfect for those longer-than-2:49 tracks, and the darker, depressing ones too

C'mon, Mike, Genesis were brilliant all the way until Steve Hacket left in the late 70's

Hey, I'm on board with Genesis, but... up until Peter Gabriel left.

Party Faithful, Syd, Genesis, Tim Buckley...serious Julie overlap here!

"Frozen Mind", Group 1850...sounds like an expedition freezing to death, cannibalism optional!!

Morning Coalhard, Kitty and everyone!

Hi Matt!

Eine sehr gute frühen Morgen, um Sie @Matt von Schprinngfeld!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/30/14 5:20am Matt from Springfield:

Arthur Brown and his Crazy World, classic.

@Mike: One time Julie looked at her set and observed it was becoming like Mike Sin - I told her to just add a bit of rock organ, and she would be there! :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/30/14 5:21am Matt from Springfield:

Und guten Mittag, P-90!
But, you gotta do it fred von helsing style, Matt von SchprinngfeldT! ;)

...truly no prune like an Electric Prune
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/30/14 5:31am Matt from Springfield:

What a psychedelic Mass! They did "Kyrie Eleison" of course, but what a trip to hear other such songs from the Prunes!
  Thu. 1/30/14 5:31am coalhard:

glasses I mean
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/30/14 5:32am Matt from Springfield:

@coalhard: Like Lennon sunglasses, real psych look to them?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/30/14 5:33am Mike Sin:

re: "Electric Prunes"
Yes, the David Axelrod version. Latin Christian mass in '68. Jewish Yom Kippur prayer in '69.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/30/14 5:35am Matt from Springfield:

Wow, that's cool! Acid and prayer just have that synchronicity.

An' Ah Feel Like sum Ahcid rat 'bout naw! Hard to believe Steve Miller Band started out like *this*!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/30/14 5:39am Matt from Springfield:

Okay, different "Prunes" then the original lineup. But in rock the "legal entity" status can often be like that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/30/14 5:43am Matt from Springfield:

This new Black Hollies sounds great -- this one has a Turtles vibe to it.
  Thu. 1/30/14 5:45am coalhard:

I 'm going to stick around for Meghans show--never heard it but it's on WFMU welcome mat

You'll enjoy it, coalhard!
  Thu. 1/30/14 5:50am coalhard:

I know fox is cute but the poor mouse had gas happens to best of us
Avatar Thu. 1/30/14 5:55am coelacanth:

Okay i just turned on about 10 songs ago but by that & looking at the playlist i'm deciding that i need to check out some Mike Sin archives. I know you did have a regular show but it was not harmonious to my "schedule" & i barely ever heard it.
I really appreciate the seldom-heard herd and the information you present...And i obviously missed some rare gems.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/30/14 5:56am Matt from Springfield:

Wow, nice Turkrok!
  Thu. 1/30/14 5:57am coalhard:

we are both from the cambrium period coelacanth

Hi just logged in.
Just found Group 1850 on the playlist.
those bonus-single-tracks are so awesome!
  Thu. 1/30/14 5:58am P-90:

So a fox, a mouse, and a coelacanth walk into a snowbank...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/30/14 5:59am Matt from Springfield:

Have a Narghile!
Thanks for an always great fill in! Mike Sin hits a bullseye again!

Have a great Thursday, everyone!
