"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

Hi John Allen! Good show on this rainy morning...
  Wed. 4/30/14 8:21am ratty:

what is the name of early disco guy, dead of aids, who this reminds me of?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 4/30/14 8:24am George of Troy:

@ ratty: I believe you're thinking of the same person. Russell did a lot of dance stuff, and his later work sounded like the track John just played.
Avatar Wed. 4/30/14 8:25am John Allen:

hi common. hi ozzy.
ratty you are probably thinking of arthur russell
  Wed. 4/30/14 8:26am ratty:

Thanks, John, for this ear-and-mind opening three hours. Always a brain workout for me. See you next time!

Oh Clarence, if there is someone I could bring back, it would be he. A modest genius.

Nice ho down, John!

Had the pleasure of seeing Bill Orcutt a couple of years back at an art gallery here in beautiful Columbus, Ohio. Great stuff; the setting spoiled me for bars and other "commercial" spaces.
