Avatar Sat. 6/7/14 11:32pm Tony Coulter:

This show will feature three French Magma-influenced prog/fusion bands: Xalph, Troll, and Xaal. Two of the tapes are unreleased demos, so if you're a Zeuhl fan, be sure to tune in. (The show won't be archived.)
  Tue. 6/10/14 11:57am MrFab:

So does that mean that these bands will sing in their own invented languages, too?
Avatar Tue. 6/10/14 11:59am Tony Coulter:

Sadly, no. (Heya, Mr. Fab!)
Avatar    Tue. 6/10/14 12:02pm listener james from westwood:

Good Tuesday, Tony and all! I read that as "unreleased demons," but maybe that's correct, too. We shall see....
  Tue. 6/10/14 12:02pm MrFab:

And they claim to be Magma-influenced? Death to false Zeuhl!

(Heh heh, howdy Tony.)

Avatar Tue. 6/10/14 12:04pm Kay:

I take it Troll was Tolkien influenced. Maybe not to the point of Bo Hansson.
Avatar Tue. 6/10/14 12:07pm Tony Coulter:

Hey ho, Listener James, DCE, and Kay!
Avatar Tue. 6/10/14 12:09pm Tony Coulter:

All 3 bands today have the patented throbbing, hiccuping Magma-oid bass sound.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/10/14 12:10pm DCE:

I think I'm really going to enjoy this version of Tape Hiss...
Avatar Tue. 6/10/14 12:11pm Tony Coulter:

Well, I can guarantee there'll be plenty of hiss.
Avatar Tue. 6/10/14 12:20pm Tony Coulter:

By the by, K7 (as in the title of this tape) is just the French abbreviation for cassette.
Avatar    Tue. 6/10/14 12:22pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Just getting here. Greetin's..
The electric piano is giving this Xalph a nicely Muffins-esque vibe..
Avatar Tue. 6/10/14 12:25pm Tony Coulter:

Heya, Turnip!

Yep -- Magma on a muffin!
Avatar    Tue. 6/10/14 12:28pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

ah, missed the explanation comment at top. But of course... There is a bit of a Muffins/Magma connection as well. One big happy zeuhly family..
Avatar    Tue. 6/10/14 12:34pm Jeremy N:

Hi Tony, all...very magmanimous of you to share these tapes with us.
Avatar Tue. 6/10/14 12:37pm Tony Coulter:

Ha! I vander if there's a pun in there somewhere. (Hola, Jeremy!)
Avatar    Tue. 6/10/14 12:47pm listener james from westwood:

Really glad I'm in the office today. Would have hated to miss this. All hail the Tony Coulter Tape Vault!
Avatar Tue. 6/10/14 12:51pm Tony Coulter:

Thanks, James! I was a little worried that this show would be too narrowcast -- but I suppose it's not a bad thing to dig deep into one style occasionally.
Avatar    Tue. 6/10/14 12:54pm listener james from westwood:

Hey, one person's "narrow" is another person's "focused" or "spotlight." Viva la freeform!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/10/14 12:58pm Uncle Michael:

hyperfocal radio
Avatar Tue. 6/10/14 12:59pm Tony Coulter:

Heya, Uncle Michael! My next show will be nothing but blank tapes and the spaces between songs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/10/14 1:02pm Uncle Michael:

How about making a C-0.5 and playing it in an auto-reversing deck for three hours?
Avatar Tue. 6/10/14 1:03pm Tony Coulter:

That'll be my talk-over music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/10/14 1:03pm Uncle Michael:

Better still, a C-0.5 and a C-0.6, both in auto-reversing decks and mixed...
Avatar Tue. 6/10/14 1:05pm Tony Coulter:

Sounds like early Minimalism -- Hiss Phase Patterns.
Avatar Tue. 6/10/14 1:16pm Tony Coulter:

Oops -- I think the track on now is actually "Gya Tei."
Avatar Tue. 6/10/14 1:18pm northguineahills:

I must be asleep, I never noticed the mic break. I was wondering how long this tape side was going to be.
Avatar Tue. 6/10/14 1:19pm Tony Coulter:

And here, finally, is "Xessandereleph."
Avatar Tue. 6/10/14 1:20pm Tony Coulter:

Greets, NGH! This side of the tape is long -- around 47 minutes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/10/14 1:24pm Uncle Michael:

For the last six weeks or so, when at work, I listen to music in mono and only in one ear. I wonder what effect this will have on my brain.
  Tue. 6/10/14 1:26pm Magmafied:

This is Zuehlicious.
Avatar Tue. 6/10/14 1:26pm Tony Coulter:

@ Uncle Michael: One ear will grow to be much larger than the other. And your brain will slide, like jello, to one side of your brain pan.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/10/14 1:28pm Uncle Michael:

What's the advantage of that, Tony? How can I leverage this to my benefit?
Avatar Tue. 6/10/14 1:31pm Tony Coulter:

Maybe start a line of headphones for one ear only? Eventually Apple will buy you out and you'll be a billionaire.
Avatar Tue. 6/10/14 1:34pm Tony Coulter:

Guess I should have said "a line of headphone."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/10/14 1:40pm Uncle Michael:

Avatar Tue. 6/10/14 1:40pm Tony Coulter:

By the way, the abrupt end to the last Xalph track is just the way the cassette cookie crumbles.

Also, do not fear: Troll doesn't spend too much time trying to be funky.
Avatar Tue. 6/10/14 1:55pm V Priceless:

Hey Tony! All! Better late than never!
Avatar Tue. 6/10/14 1:56pm Tony Coulter:

Hey, V Priceless!
  Tue. 6/10/14 1:58pm PMD:

Been silently listening. Nice...
Avatar Tue. 6/10/14 1:59pm Tony Coulter:

Thanks, PMD! (And greets!)
Avatar Tue. 6/10/14 1:59pm Tony Coulter:

The Hiss Army could use a few more good prog fans for this particular show. Arise from the woodwork, proglodytes!
Avatar    Tue. 6/10/14 2:05pm listener james from westwood:

^^^ would fave that comment were it a tweet.
Avatar    Tue. 6/10/14 2:08pm listener james from westwood:

I just tweeted that folks have this chance to snag the last hour. Hoping the prog fans have their #prog hashtag ears on (or ear on, if they've also been spending time listening mono).
Avatar Tue. 6/10/14 2:10pm Tony Coulter:

Ha! Thanks, James! I am not a tweeter-bird myself -- FB is all I can handle when it comes to social media.
Avatar    Tue. 6/10/14 2:15pm listener james from westwood:

Someone's already retweeted me, so I also tweeted the fact that every other week's an unarchived show, but that the regular shows have been known to speak prog, too. Hope folks join in this week or next!
Avatar Tue. 6/10/14 2:16pm Tony Coulter:

Thanks much!
Avatar Tue. 6/10/14 2:32pm V Priceless:

@ listener james - good source to gather proggers on FB is "Crusie To The Edge", too - FYI!
Avatar Tue. 6/10/14 2:34pm V Priceless:

the CTTE Group on FB, that is!
  Tue. 6/10/14 2:40pm Doug Schulkind:

Enjoying you (quietly) in the dentist's lobby while my daughter gets a cleaning. Hi Tony!
Avatar Tue. 6/10/14 2:41pm Tony Coulter:

Hey Doug!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/10/14 2:49pm Uncle Michael:

Doug, anything good in last October's "Highlights?"
Avatar    Tue. 6/10/14 2:55pm listener james from westwood:

Geez, Doug, some graduation present!
Seriously, wish her my best. She's the luckier of the two people I know having dental work today (the other is surgery), but still, dental visits only reach a certain apex of fun.
Avatar    Tue. 6/10/14 2:55pm listener james from westwood:

UM, I was always more of a "Cricket" kid. (This may explain my introversion.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/10/14 2:57pm Uncle Michael:

Doug's probably catching up on Field & Stream. Great piece on sighting scopes from February 2011.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 6/10/14 2:58pm Uncle Michael:

Fine show today, Tony. I'm gonna miss this headspace.
Avatar Tue. 6/10/14 2:59pm Tony Coulter:

Thankers, UM!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 6/10/14 3:00pm DCE:

thanks Tony! this was great!
Avatar    Tue. 6/10/14 3:00pm listener james from westwood:

I'd be starring this show if I could, Tony! Many thanks for the hissage!
Avatar Tue. 6/10/14 3:02pm Tony Coulter:

Thanks everybody! See you next week!
Avatar Tue. 6/10/14 3:04pm northguineahills:

Thanks Tony, for another wonderful show!
