Okee Dokee Tony, made it through the memorial mayhem. I can deal with a little pain.

Hair of the PAIN that bit me! (I'd better get a shot for that. Rabies or whiskey?)

@Carmichael I had no idea Godzilla was so sensitive to sunlight.

Hola, Carmichael!

You know what is said 'No pain, no grain' Two fingers of red eye, DJ and a crocodile sandwich. Make it snappy.

Greets, Fleep!

Fleep, pale skin is a sign of royalty in Japan. Even for city-smashing, bus-throwing mutants.
  Tue. 5/27/14 12:09pm Dean:

Morning (from where I sit), all. Jon Rose is one of the artists featured in a movie by a buddy of mine, The Reach of Resonance: http://www.reachofresonance.com/ Well worth a viewing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 12:10pm Tony Coulter:

So, I should say that the "Bad Alchemy" comps are all over the place style-wise, from improv/noise to off-kilter pop.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 12:11pm Tony Coulter:

Interesting, Dean! I'll take a look post-show. (Greets. too.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/27/14 12:11pm Fleep:

@Tony Greetings from 964 miles southwards, drive time in current traffic: 14 h 49 min.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 12:13pm Tony Coulter:

Today's show is the debut of my brand new cassette deck. Has pitch control, tho I don't expect to be using that today.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 12:13pm Carmichael:

We're fixing US 50, Fleep. Add another 2 1/2 hours.
  Tue. 5/27/14 12:14pm Dean:

Other featured artists: Miya Masaoki (on cockroaches and bees), John Luther Adams (music generated from the Arctic Circle), and Bob Ostertag (music and activism).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 12:16pm Tony Coulter:

@ Dean: Is there footage of Jon Rose playing barbed wire fence?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 12:18pm Tony Coulter:

Günter Müller is also in the group on now (Nachtluft)
  Tue. 5/27/14 12:21pm Dean:

Tony, yes! It is the core theme of the Rose portion. Steve Elkins, the filmmaker, devotes a lot of time to Jon Rose.

Ah, I have a Nachtluft CD. Forgot it was Muller.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 12:22pm Tony Coulter:

Btw, the tape on now is the purplish one on the right.
  Tue. 5/27/14 12:37pm Brueghel LeMoche:

Hola amigos! Congrats for your new cassette deck Tony! You could maybe consider a reel to reel for an special edition of tape hiss in the future!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 12:39pm Tony Coulter:

Hola, Brueghel! And then there's 8-track hiss ... and clunk.
Avatar Tue. 5/27/14 12:49pm still b/p:

A cassette deck salvaged from former workplace sat around here quite a while before I tried, with great hope, to play something. But the Aiwa AD-6550 (made 1977-1981)...she won't move the tape. So sAD.
  Tue. 5/27/14 12:51pm Brueghel LeMoche:

This Loch Ness Monster song is gorgeous. There's a revival of that synth sound going on these days, no?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 12:52pm Tony Coulter:

Heya still b/p! I weep for yer fallen Aiwa.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 12:53pm Tony Coulter:

@ Brueghel: Yep, the kids can't get enough of those drums machines and analog synths.
  Tue. 5/27/14 12:55pm Brueghel LeMoche:

those 80's synth are to music what art-deco is to architecture
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/27/14 12:55pm fleep:

I believe the belts are the weakest link, they dry up and snap. Same with old VCRs.
I have a terrific cassette boom box that no longer works but I can hear the motor running just fine.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 12:57pm listener james from westwood:

Dug the heck out of vol. 7. All over the place is basically where my mind's been all day, so this has matched up nicely.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 12:57pm Tony Coulter:

In case anyone was confused: the H.N.A.S. track that ended the last tape is only 7 second long.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 12:58pm Tony Coulter:

Glad to hear it, James!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 1:00pm Tony Coulter:

The cassette on now is the green one, with the lovely Deborah Jaffe (of Master/Slave Relationship) on the cover.
  Tue. 5/27/14 1:04pm Brueghel LeMoche:

I think they were sampling Judy Ongg on that song, could be?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 1:05pm Tony Coulter:

Don't know Ms. Ong!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 1:05pm Tony Coulter:

er, Ongg...
  Tue. 5/27/14 1:09pm Brueghel LeMoche:

I only have one lovely tune of her "Miserarete" taken from a cassette! pizzicato5 compilation. I think it was her on that patchinco song
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 1:11pm Tony Coulter:

Damn you, pre/post echo.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 1:15pm Tony Coulter:

As is no doubt glaringly obvious by now, everything on this side of the cassette is Japanese. The other side is from all over.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/27/14 1:22pm maestroso:

Argh!! I missed Kiyohiko Semba!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 1:24pm Tony Coulter:

Hey ho, maestroso!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/27/14 1:27pm maestroso:

And no archives... what was the song, DJ Tony?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 1:28pm Tony Coulter:

Nothing I recognized from elsewhere -- and no title is given.
  Tue. 5/27/14 1:33pm Dean:

I'm not hearing "hibernation." I'm hearing, "Hi! Turkey sh*t."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 1:35pm Tony Coulter:

Maybe that's the secret subliminal message.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 1:36pm listener james from westwood:

Turn me on, turkey sh*t!
Turn me on, turkey sh*t!
Turn me on, turkey sh*t!
(etc.)
  Tue. 5/27/14 1:38pm Dean:

Even Judas Priest had the courtesy to backmask.
  Tue. 5/27/14 1:40pm Brueghel LeMoche:

wow this limpe fuchs thing rocks! btw the japanese part just reminded me a scene of the movie i saw yesterday night, kurosawa's "the bodyguard". where a group of geishas are playing an exotica piece, really fast and rockin' . Actually the soundtrack of that movie is really nice
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/27/14 1:41pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

[splutters to wakefulness in the corner]
....whuh? Turkey sh*t?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/27/14 1:44pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Yay! Cranioclast! Boo, missed that Hal McGee piece...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 1:45pm Tony Coulter:

Greets, T*rn*p!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 1:47pm Tony Coulter:

Oddly, I saw Master/Slave Relationship do a show in a bar sometime in the '90s.
  Tue. 5/27/14 1:48pm Dean:

The bar...was it Hegel's Spirits?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 1:50pm Rich in Washington:

this is a great show, Tony!
Sadly, in new work environment, so listening to radio shows will be challenging, going forward.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 1:50pm Tony Coulter:

er, I meant to say this cassette came out in 1988, not 1989.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/27/14 1:52pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

....and haven't heard this one since about 1991. Pitched much of my tape collection in a move. So glad SOMEONE ON EARTH still has these things.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 1:54pm Tony Coulter:

Hey Rich,

Sorry to hear about your new audio-hostile environment. Maybe you can get wireless headphones that look exactly like ears?
Avatar Tue. 5/27/14 1:54pm still b/p:

I liked that. And backwards, the outfit is "a mini matinu," So...you know.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 1:58pm Tony Coulter:

Cassette on now is "Love, Pain and the (Whole Damn Thing)"
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/27/14 2:04pm northguineahills:

Don't think I've actually listened to the Kalahari Surfers before. Nice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 2:05pm Carmichael:

OK, back from a brainless, destructive meeting. This music shall cure me, though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 2:06pm Tony Coulter:

Hey, NGH! They are great, fer sure.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 2:07pm Tony Coulter:

and a hi ho hello to Carmichael as well....
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/27/14 2:08pm Chris from DC:

A couple of bands here that were just names to me previously. Very cool.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 2:09pm Jeff Golick:

Bad Alchemy = good listening. Hiya, brother Tony and fellow GTDRers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 2:10pm Tony Coulter:

Hey Chris! Every band/artist on these tapes has full albums as well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 2:11pm Tony Coulter:

Hiya, Jeff G!

By the by, the name "Bad Alchemy" is taken from a Slapp Happy/ Henry Cow song.
Avatar Tue. 5/27/14 2:13pm still b/p:

Too bad Holly didn't sit on the windowsill playing it this way.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/27/14 2:16pm cklequ:

My god, that was the best Jad Fair song i've ever heard....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 2:18pm Tony Coulter:

Greets, cklequ!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/27/14 2:19pm northguineahills:

Yeah, that was an awesome Jad Fair track.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 2:37pm Tony Coulter:

Thinking back, I guess what I saw in a bar was a hybrid of Dog as Master and Master/Slave Relationship, as it was the duo of Hal McGee and Debbie Jaffe.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 2:48pm Tony Coulter:

The Only a Mother track just now is only 22 seconds long
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 2:53pm Doug as Master:

Been lurking and working. Thanks for a great Hiss, Tony!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 2:54pm Tony Coulter:

Doug as Master! I hail thee!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 2:55pm Jeff Golick:

I'll have what she's having.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/27/14 2:55pm northguineahills:

This Asano/Rax Karal is the tops! Thanks Tony for a great show!

Yer welcome, NGH.

This is zee last track of the tape....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 3:03pm listener james from westwood:

Thanks, Tony, for sharing these Bad Alchemy tapes! Blows my mind that I could've been listening to these back in the late 80s instead of the crap I was hearing on the radio!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 3:03pm Jeff Golick:

Outstanding tape mining, Tony. Thanks for the tour of Bad Alchemy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/27/14 3:05pm Tony Coulter:

Thanks, Jeff! And thanks, all, for showing up. See you next week!
