Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 9:04pm jj.:

glad to bring you the good news! it's great. it's got (to me) the definitive "not feeling human" & two great song-suites.

Hello Frow Show....
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 9:09pm Santos L Halper:

Wow. Frow! Was not expecting that...but was just wondering today when i might hear it again. (After Irwin played some Bobby Ace this afternoon)
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 9:14pm Holly in NC:

And Pip Proud?! And Tuxedomoon? !! Getting ready for 30 min. commute, back as soon as possible.

btw, I happily, gladly, purchased hardcover Big Day Coming (I have the receipt!) but later also dled free epub version. What are your thoughts?
  Wed. 2/5/14 9:16pm Marmalade kitty:

Hello!
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 9:19pm jj.:

totally fine with it, and thanks!, though had no idea either a hardcover or a free epub existed! (but not supposed to talk about work-type matters through WFMU channels.)
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 9:25pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Nice sprize, this Frow Now.
And belated yay, Olivia Tremor Peel Session. It's a lovely thing.
Do please continue...
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 9:28pm Stevel:

Greetings non efd show with awesome opening set.

Frow Show!
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 9:29pm Holly in NC:

ooof, so embarrassed re hardcover mention, was thinking of Will Hermes - but was not lying re SOFTcover of BDC. Both above-referenced books live in shelf directly above my head, once I get home.

Yeah, free epub exists.

No more talk. Zip!
  Wed. 2/5/14 9:37pm P-90:

Nice to see (hear) you pop up in this spot Jesse J. Onward!
  Wed. 2/5/14 9:39pm Marmalade kitty:

who is like the australian syd barrett, I missed that..?
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 9:40pm Holly in NC:

@MarmeladeKitty - that w/b Pip Proud

Banjo Kazooie Barret
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 9:41pm jj.:

ah, the australian syd barrett = pip proud. can't wait to dig deeper myself.

Where in the name of Vlad the Impaler are Vlasta Popić from?

Going to FMA tonight!
  Wed. 2/5/14 9:47pm koto:

Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 9:58pm Holly in NC:

Space Lady reissue is reissue of the year, I can't imagine anything w/b very close. Assuming Space Lady counts as 2014 reissue?
  Wed. 2/5/14 9:59pm Marmalade kitty:

tuned indeed! goodnight frowskateers!
  Wed. 2/5/14 10:07pm pfcidb:

Just as relevant today as when it was first recorded.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 10:23pm Holly in NC:

OK, really driving home now. Meantime, go Canada:

Anybody remember when Pete Seeger's banjo was stolen and then the thief returned it?
  Wed. 2/5/14 10:36pm Marmalade kitty:

Thanks for the pete seeger set!
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 10:38pm jj.:

yay! glad you appreciated it! was worried it was too corny for WFMU. but, hell, we probably wouldn't be here without pete.
  Wed. 2/5/14 10:43pm Marmalade kitty:

I'm only learning of Petes body of work since his passing..respect.
  Wed. 2/5/14 10:45pm Marmalade kitty:

Pete Big heart! :)
  Wed. 2/5/14 10:49pm P-90:

@jj: Lotsa FMU Dj's did Pete tributes this week, no one thought it was too corny. You're right about none of this being here - not in quite the same form anyway - without him.
Interested to hear how important he was to you when you were a lad.
Excelsior!
  Wed. 2/5/14 10:59pm koto:

it was first time to me listening Pete Seeger. but it didn't sound corny at all. i did very quick study about him and i could imagine how he influenced people. i also respect him.
  Wed. 2/5/14 11:00pm KP:

Jesse! Good to see you
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 11:00pm Santos L Halper:

Not waiting for the closing bell...enjoying the show NOW
  Wed. 2/5/14 11:04pm koto:

please play the show little more longeeeer!
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 11:05pm Holly in NC:

When poorly educated, scared, sick, hopeless flag-waving nitwits are all about "Amurica" - I weep, as in my world, Pete S.speaks for that America, and I cannot parse how things have gone so wrong.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 11:08pm Droll:

The electronic birdsong is beautiful.
  Wed. 2/5/14 11:10pm P-90:

@Droll: roger that. " Live at Roulette" is way cool
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 11:12pm jj.:

"live at roulette" *is* way cool, but there it was never quite playing by itself, always with stuff mixed on top of it. recommended: noveller.bandcamp.com...
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 11:13pm Santos L Halper:

Grayfolded vinyl, eh?
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 11:14pm jj.:

yup! out in april. on temporary loan from the label.
  Wed. 2/5/14 11:15pm pfcidb:

oh man i haven't listened to grayfolded in forever
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 11:17pm Santos L Halper:

Seems like the kind of thing that would benefit from the CDs extended time, but maybe it divides up nicely...
  Wed. 2/5/14 11:20pm P-90:

jj: thanks for clarifying!
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 11:23pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

Still snowing.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 11:23pm Droll:

I also think it's odd to be anachronistic about LP -- it had a maximum running time, but you always got a second side with the same running time for free...
  Wed. 2/5/14 11:25pm nate:

haven't heard this in forever, not really something I would want to have to keep flipping over though...
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 11:25pm jj.:

for the record, we're back into ranaldo & noveller here...
  Wed. 2/5/14 11:29pm P-90:

@Drool: Ha! that's one way of looking at it. It gave musicians a standard "frame" or format of 22 mins, a distinct "break" or intermission, and another 22. So they thought in terms of how to fit that format. Sometimes a "limitation" like that is actually liberating. In the Cage/Eno sense of having an arbitrary rule imposed that you have to work with giving you focus. I miss the age of vinyl LPs for a few reasons
  Wed. 2/5/14 11:30pm P-90:

jj: thnx for update
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 11:31pm Holly in NC:

@Santos L Halper - whenever I see your avatar I grin wildly - thank you.
  Wed. 2/5/14 11:32pm P-90:

As soon as those little guitar squiggles turn up in the J. Oswald, it reminds me of a Dead "Space" set
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 11:34pm Santos L Halper:

That's the best way to grin holly : )

P-90: there's a reason for that...
and agreed about rules being useful, along w/the occasional oblique strategy
  Wed. 2/5/14 11:36pm P-90:

Yeah, I caught that, right after I posted, the "resemblance" became more explicit
  Wed. 2/5/14 11:36pm KP:

They're playing my song
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 11:36pm Holly in NC:

" @drool" = major belly laugh here. @droll, I hope you also thought funny!
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 11:37pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

There is an unhung, framed Lee Ranaldo poem staring me in the face here in the dining room. it is apparently incumbent on me to hang it.
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 11:41pm Droll:

P90, The 23 minute limit is both cause and effect. Eno's Oblique Strategies is a way more interesting framework!
  Wed. 2/5/14 11:47pm P-90:

@Droooll: Just thinking the "one or more disks of 22/22" format meant that whatever anyone was doing, they were at least all confined to that same single constraint. A universal shape for everyone's version of the ritual, an enforced community, in that one respect. "We all liked THAT album, looking forward to hearing YOUR album, meanwhile here's MY album"
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 11:54pm Droll:

P-90, With streaming we've hit infinite length, which is the degenerate case of using up other people's time. On YT you've only got about 15 seconds to make an impression. Having said that, one of the best-selling albums of all time (Dark Side of the Moon) spends the first 25 seconds as a near silent thump-thump -- nothing happens.
  Wed. 2/5/14 11:54pm P-90:

Pete recap in the Coda, a must
  Wed. 2/5/14 11:54pm KP:

So long, Jesse!
  Wed. 2/5/14 11:55pm KP:

It's been good to hear you again
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 11:56pm Santos L Halper:

Drifting along into the night...thanks Jesse!
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 11:56pm Droll:

Thanks, JJ, for all the Pete (and other goodness).
Avatar Wed. 2/5/14 11:58pm Tome:

Great set Jesse ,, peace !!
  Wed. 2/5/14 11:58pm P-90:

Sure, that was a statement itself at the time, DSOM's "long" heartbeat-only intro was a daring deconstruction of the whole way pop records were done, that kind of thing at the beginning is a head's-up that what comes after is gonna break some rules, wants to be listened to differently than the typical LP
  Wed. 2/5/14 11:59pm P-90:

Thanks, jj
catch you next time, be good
