Awlright ! I been sayin' for days how solid a drummer you are efd man! I play guitar like everybody, but I've barely played w/ a drummer @ all - so I love drummers ! They still impress me...But why didn't Dave Hill do three-finger trills thru a Marshall Stack - ?!?

I honestly didn't know about them playing this style! I only knew of Don't You Forget about me

Holy Smokes! I second that remark about "How Dare You"! Simply superb record!

Hearing this, I thought "Oh, this is where the Beastie Boys grabbed that sample." Forgot it was one of their instrumentals.

So I just learned that David Lynch, Trent Reznor and John Carpenter have each collaborated individually with Jean Michel Jarre for his album slated to come out later this year. Holy hell!

BGZ, that sounds like it could be potentially be equally amazing & terrible.

OMG, Randall!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/12/14 9:28pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...has High on Fire ever covered Fire on High? Are you playing instrumentals because everyone there is tired of thinking about singing Post-Marathon? These & other questions...should be ignored...Sounds very Cinematic BGZ - or CineMusical - an interesting group of people indeed...not @ the same time I'm sure - but Reznor & Lynch together alone spurs the imagination !...

Here I was thinking the whole show was going to be instrumental as anything!
@Evan: Great work during the marathon. Loved the Eddie & the Hot Rods cover, too.
Simple Minds were quite popular down here in that period (Love Song was even a chart hit), and earlier songs like I Travel and Celebrate were even better.

Damn, that Fingerprintz song was good. Can't believe I ignored them at the time (was it their name? their logo?). For a few moments there I thought it might be the Bush Tetras (the guitar?).

This Bappi Lahiri is unintentionally totally badass.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/12/14 10:19pm efd:

Eddy, they moved in a more synth/dance direction after the Very Dab LP, but that album is great and the single they put out before that ("Dancing With Yourself") remains one of my all-time fave power pop records.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/12/14 10:19pm efd:

(and, therefore, one of my all-time fave records)

DJ EFD I'm sure you have but if not the documentary of Ginger Baker, Beware of Mr. Baker, is an excellent pic.
  Wed. 3/12/14 10:34pm Hatch:

I just got the Bappi Lahiri soundtrack that song is from in Calcutta in January, it's from a Bond ripoff film. Bappi is the undisputed king of Bollywood disco as far as I'm concerned. These days he's physically as big as a house and is sadly an active member of India's virulent Hindu nationalist party BJP.

WHooda, others have suggested that doc but I haven't checked it out yet. Someday...

Hmm it seems like there's more cats and dogs on the playlist...perhaps in response to yesterday's Dave Hill show?
Avatar Wed. 3/12/14 10:36pm Holly in NC:

@efd, thank you. While not a huge Drivin' & Cryin' fan, I think Mr. Fowler may have participated in some Frank French/Kevin Kinney works which I heartily enjoy.

Avatar Wed. 3/12/14 11:09pm Whooda:

@Holly, I readily understand that 'live' is the only way to truly appreciate SCOTS, but alas, I've only seen a few videos. WIKI: "... as they usually write and perform songs about dancing, sex, and fried chicken," gotta love that!

White Hills wonderful.

Chris Stamey amazing. Talk about icon/idol, been following since early 80s, well before I moved to NC. Does not get enough credit.

If anyone owns "The Robust Beauty of Improper Linear Models in Decision Making" I will pay for a mp3 copy, my cd skips & it's impossible to find online. Fair warning -anyone who doesn't own it would likely hate it.
