Good morning after long weekend, Tony. I await the hissiness.

'Morning, Carmichael!

good tuesday, tony! may be in and out here, but will be listening and digging the oxide thruout!

Hey, there, Listener James! In and out is better than not at all.

Just another "snow day" here in Freezeburgh. Thanks for radiating your molten lava of love, Tony!

And therefore no Sebastian Hardie, as promised last week, hmmm?

can i say cold like motherfucker? because it is.

Mea Culpa, Dean. Next week, I promises!

Nothing says obscure rock like accordion!

Hey ho, DCE!
Avatar Tue. 2/18/14 12:08pm Tony Coulter:

@ Carmichael: Space Heater has accordion a-plenty.
  Tue. 2/18/14 12:09pm Dean:

I'll hold you to it. But in fact it's mea culpa. My collection included two SH LPs along with the Windchase LP before the grand purge of the late '80s, when I regrettably unloaded a number of records.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/18/14 12:11pm Carmichael:

Those Darn Accordions!

Hola hisstapers
Avatar Tue. 2/18/14 12:17pm still b/p:

Halloo. I liked that happy organ in He'll Never Do Time. It should accompany the new shoveling I'll have to do later.
Avatar Tue. 2/18/14 12:17pm Tony Coulter:

Brueghel!! LeMoche!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/18/14 12:19pm Carmichael:

The only shoveling I've ever done was for fenceposts. As usual, it will be about 70 and sunny.
  Tue. 2/18/14 12:20pm Brueghel LeMoche:

Hi Tony, I have a course every tuesday evening (Brussels time) so I'm missing most of the shows live.
  Tue. 2/18/14 12:20pm ?:

Hi Tony, anything symphonic amongst today's tape hissiness?
Avatar Tue. 2/18/14 12:22pm Tony Coulter:

Hey ? Nothing symphonic, exactly, but Xcranieum are proggers and Armageddon is hard rock/heavy metal. Those will be the last two tapes.
  Tue. 2/18/14 12:24pm ?:

sounds good - will carry on hissening!
  Tue. 2/18/14 12:25pm ?:

this present tape reminds me for some reason of the pre Eurythmics band The Tourists?
  Tue. 2/18/14 12:25pm Dean:

Same Armageddon? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dfu4hX1H_-s
Avatar Tue. 2/18/14 12:28pm Tony Coulter:

@ Dean: Nope! My Armageddon is from California and the '90s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/18/14 12:34pm Carmichael:

Wow, there's the Swedish Armageddon from '74, and the Keith Relf British Armageddon. No mention of California.
Avatar Tue. 2/18/14 12:36pm Tony Coulter:

Guess it's one of those names that occurs to a lot of people! The Armageddon I'll be playing is a demo tape. Not sure if the stuff was ever released.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/18/14 12:37pm Carmichael:

Maybe I found them: www.metal-archives.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/18/14 12:37pm pacific standard simon:

We're all just hissing in the wind.
Avatar Tue. 2/18/14 12:38pm Tony Coulter:

A Carmichael: Nope -- that's not them either!

@ PS Simon: Ha! (And greets.)
Avatar Tue. 2/18/14 12:42pm Tony Coulter:

This could be my Armageddon: shuffler.fm... The music is (it's from my cassette) -- someone else put up the picture on their own, so don't know if it's really the band.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/18/14 12:43pm pacific standard simon:

Tape Hiss has inspired me to collect and reprint a bunch of my old zine stuff from the early 90s.
Avatar Tue. 2/18/14 12:44pm Tony Coulter:

Wow! Which zine is that? Would love to see it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/18/14 12:50pm pacific standard simon:

It was a low-distribution series of collage and satirical text cut-ups named Loose Noose. Mostly advertised through Factsheet 5. I'm scanning and editing, then will hand bind some collections. Send you one when it's done.
Avatar Tue. 2/18/14 12:50pm Tony Coulter:

Thanks much!!

Devo is reporting on their Facebook page that Bob Casale has died.

Uncle! Uncle! Uncle!
Avatar Tue. 2/18/14 12:54pm Tony Coulter:

Oh -- sad news (re Devo Bob, I mean.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/18/14 12:57pm Carmichael:

Tony, that Shuffler page referenced FMU's Beware of the Blog: blog.wfmu.org...

Not sure who wrote the actual blurb.
Avatar Tue. 2/18/14 12:58pm listener james from westwood:

agreed: fuck yeah! great 1st hour!
Avatar Tue. 2/18/14 12:59pm Tony Coulter:

Thanks, LJ!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/18/14 1:00pm pacific standard simon:

Well, shoot-a-basket! Isn't that the second DEVO member we've lost in a year?
  Tue. 2/18/14 1:00pm Bomis Prendin:

Hi, Tony!

You're the best tape dispenser!

Regards,
Bomis
Avatar Tue. 2/18/14 1:01pm Tony Coulter:

@ Carmichael: Yeah, the original blogpost was mine. Someone linked to it and the track I posted. They then added that photo -- which may or may not really be the band. (Doesn't look like a '90s band, somehow.)
Avatar Tue. 2/18/14 1:01pm Tony Coulter:

Bomis! Glad to see you here!!
Avatar Tue. 2/18/14 1:02pm Tony Coulter:

I meanz, Bomis Prendin -- glad to see you here and everywhere else too.
Avatar Tue. 2/18/14 1:04pm listener james from westwood:

aaaah, shite news on bob casale. dear 2014: ease up on the death, please.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/18/14 1:08pm Carmichael:

I just saw Devo last summer. They rocked the place, primarily due to superior technology and raw firepower.
  Tue. 2/18/14 1:13pm Bomis Prendin:

It's Bow-mis.
  Tue. 2/18/14 1:13pm MrFab:

Howdy y'all. Yep, saw the Spuds recently opening for (and blowing off the stage) Blondie. 'Twas the third time I'd seen 'em, and am glad I did.

Tony: as a fan of all things Alec Redfearn, I'm majorly diggin' this.

Hello, Coulterites!

That Space Heater was highly entertaining.
Avatar Tue. 2/18/14 1:15pm Rich in Washington:

Weird. This collage thing also pops up on a Crass LP.
  Tue. 2/18/14 1:16pm Dean:

Something tells me this might be the Manish Tandon of your Armageddon: http://butterthiefmusic.com/about/ See the para. beginning, "Tandon cut his teeth on the speed metal circuit growing up in LA..." And could this be the same Chris Khatchaturian? http://www.avdentist.com/palmdale-dentist.htm#chris Ages and locations of these guys seem right (although Glandale probably has an inordinate number of Chris Khatchaturians.)
Avatar Tue. 2/18/14 1:16pm Tony Coulter:

@ Bomis Prendin: Oops! Sorry!!! As I said, I was told at one point but my head is like a sieve.
Avatar Tue. 2/18/14 1:20pm Tony Coulter:

@ Dean: Think you may have tracked them down!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/18/14 1:26pm Carmichael:

Good work, Dean! That is the correct Manish Tandon.
Avatar Tue. 2/18/14 1:31pm Rich in Washington:

This is great stuff, Tony. Had heard of Bomis Prendin but never actually heard them until now.
Avatar Tue. 2/18/14 1:32pm Guido (Cologne):

Just passing by:
Hi Tony and all others!

Another RIP:
Kralle Krawinkel, guitarist / musical director of TRIO.
Avatar Tue. 2/18/14 1:33pm Tony Coulter:

@ Rich: I believe this cassette is really rare, but much of their stuff (all great) is relatively easy to find.
  Tue. 2/18/14 1:34pm Bomis Prendin:

It's rare, alright. I don't even remember half of it!
Avatar Tue. 2/18/14 1:35pm Tony Coulter:

Hey Guido! More sad news.

That should be "Serindar." It's the first song we ever recorded!

daggnabbit, DCE! That sucks! I was just thinking about Devo before tuning in.
Avatar Tue. 2/18/14 2:01pm Tony Coulter:

Argh!! I mispronounced it again! It's Beau-mis! Beau-mis! (Forgive me, Lord, for I have sinned.)
  Tue. 2/18/14 2:02pm Bomis Prendin:

That's what I call reelin' in the years! Thanks, Tony!

Great to have you here, Bomis!
Avatar Tue. 2/18/14 2:06pm Rich in Washington:

@Bomis: That's some cool music. Will have to check it all out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/18/14 2:11pm pacific standard simon:

Don't say "Bemis".
Avatar Tue. 2/18/14 2:13pm Tony Coulter:

Is that a curse word in Hungarian?
Avatar Tue. 2/18/14 2:14pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Was sadly late to the Bomis Prendin tape. But sounded flipping wonderful. Local folks, yet I had no idea… Digging the hell out of the Xcranieum as well. Do carry on, sir.

We are.
Avatar Tue. 2/18/14 2:29pm Rich in Washington:

There used to be a giant paper bag manufacturer where I grew up called Bemis Bag. Employed thousands of people. I think they folded (pun intended) years ago or outsourced their production to the lowest bidder in some 3rd world country.
One of the reasons the Pacific NW has become Methlandia. Or Heroinlandia. Take your pick.

That they did.

This song in particular ("Mother's Dying") has a '70s sound to my ears.
