Just listened to an hour-long interview with my hero Robert Caro on the Diane Rehm show. Now time for D:O Radio. Am pumped up!
Avatar    Mon. 6/30/14 12:04pm listener james from westwood:

Saw a note about that on Twitter, Doug. Will have to hunt that down.
Howdy, Jeff, Jeff, and all! Looking forward to the looooong tracks! (And my iPod makes your show a bathroom-portable experience.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/30/14 12:05pm doca:

Hey, Jeffs, Doug and James! I would be here, but I "need" to watch the game. World Cup addiction is running high in me.
Avatar Mon. 6/30/14 12:05pm Dervish:

Goat cheese?

Do not forget Cosmic Jokers!

Go Super Eagles!
Avatar Mon. 6/30/14 12:08pm Jeff J:

Hey James, Doca, Dean, and Dervish -- and of course Doug!

We've got a Robert Caro track queued up for later in the show. Of course we're mostly fans of the early stuff.
Avatar Mon. 6/30/14 12:08pm Jeff J:

Doca - Let e2:e4 soundtrack your world cup viewing!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/30/14 12:09pm doca:

Thanks! Will you play the whole of it? I love this album
Avatar    Mon. 6/30/14 12:09pm Jeff Golick:

So, Doug, that first hour probably just about covered the first few minutes of his life, I'm guessing.
Avatar    Mon. 6/30/14 12:10pm Jeff Golick:

Avatar    Mon. 6/30/14 12:11pm Jeff Golick:

@Dean: talk to me about Cosmic Jokers...!
Avatar Mon. 6/30/14 12:12pm Doug Schulkind:

@Jeff G
Caro has written, what, about 4,000 pages so far on Johnson and the last book only goes a few months in to his presidency. So, yeah.

You can't play a Robert Caro track on this show unless you click the "Extra-extra-long song button."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/30/14 12:12pm doca:

Haha I don't know Robert Caro, but on the topic: I'm reading those "My Struggle" novels by Karl Ove Knausgaard everybody's talking about now. I'm marveled at how someone at his 45 can write SIX volumes of memories.
Avatar    Mon. 6/30/14 12:14pm Jeff Golick:

@doca: How goes? Someone in my book group suggested we try Vol 1 next, but I'm sorta put off by what I imagine to be a long, boring navel-gaze.
Avatar Mon. 6/30/14 12:17pm Jeff J:

Doca - We got the whole album coming your way. Perfect for soccer, really. Almost programmed with the World Cup in mind.

Dean - Yes on the Cosmic Jokers. Had temporarily forgotten about them!
  Mon. 6/30/14 12:18pm Dean:

@JG: Aptly named, those jokers of the cosmos. You've heard them, yes? A Krautrock supergroup is, I suppose, the most fitting epithet, although they exhibit none of the proggy, bluesy feel of, say, Jane. They're almost purely techno. I had two or three of their LPs until the late '80s, when I purged my collection. I now deeply regret having done so.
Avatar Mon. 6/30/14 12:19pm Jeff J:

Dean - I only have the 1st Cosmic Jokers LP. You recall the others being of similar quality?
  Mon. 6/30/14 12:19pm Dean:

Anyway, Göttsching was a member, the point of my bringing them up.
  Mon. 6/30/14 12:20pm Dean:

@JJ, I do, but don't ask me to identify passages from Galactic Supermarket versus the eponymous record!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/30/14 12:20pm doca:

I really liked it, @JeffG, but I must say to my surprise. It has some boring passages, but everything's wrapped up in a sense of "lived life", as I read in a review, that makes it great. In the end, you feel next to the characters as if they were people you knew.
And he's not THAT egocentric, at least, although he seems to be a bit annoying

Hi Jeffs and record heads
Avatar    Mon. 6/30/14 12:22pm Jeff Golick:

Thanks, @doca. We shall see...

We've just about finished the first part of E2 E4, btw, called "Quiet Nervousness," moving into "Moderate Start."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/30/14 12:22pm doca:

@Jeff J: My suggestion for a looooong show is - as always - Morton Feldman's second string quartet. You can mix it with someone reading Knausgaard's "My Struggle".
Avatar    Mon. 6/30/14 12:22pm Jeff Golick:

Heya, @duke!
  Mon. 6/30/14 12:28pm Dean:

My candidate for a l-o-n-g show: the ongoing performance of Cage's As Slow As Possible at a church in Halberstadt, Germany. It started in 2001 and is due to end in 2640. "Encore!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/30/14 12:30pm doca:

That would be a good one, @Duke. I read that when the fonograph was invented some guys thought it would be possible to play/hear all the sounds the world has hear in its history, because sound wouldn't dissipate. If sound could exist forever, perhaps we could gather together the memory of generations hearing that Cage piece.
  Mon. 6/30/14 12:34pm CAN VUH DUUL:

Plenty of better Krautrock than this minor aberration of discoid house locked groove record!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/30/14 12:35pm Uncle Michael:

I take things, my brainbox sings.
  Mon. 6/30/14 12:36pm Dean:

This E2-E4 sounds to me not unlike Steve Hillage's System 7 stuff, which is of course not German at all.
Avatar Mon. 6/30/14 12:38pm Doug Schulkind:

So far the score is:
DO 1
Avatar Mon. 6/30/14 12:38pm Jeff J:

Can Vuh Duul - Wouldn't really consider this track Krautrock, personally. We'll be scratching that particular itch though in a future show though.
Avatar    Mon. 6/30/14 12:39pm Jeff Golick:

Yes, as Jeff J sez, we've begun planning a full Krautrock show. Recommendations welcome...
Avatar    Mon. 6/30/14 12:41pm Jeff Golick:

@Can Vuh Duul: I guess you'd find this cut to be Amon DULL.

AMIRITE? Here all week, folks. Tip your waitresses. Try the veal.
  Mon. 6/30/14 12:43pm CAN VUH DUUL:

sure there's plenty of good Kraut (Jazz prog) rock - Passport, whole Popul Vuh catalogue, Ash ra Tempel catalogue, Tago Mago era Can, Guru Guru, Amon DUUL 1 & 2 etc.
Avatar Mon. 6/30/14 12:44pm glenn:

what ho, destinators?
  Mon. 6/30/14 12:44pm Dean:

Krautrock desiderata: 1) Anything off the first Grobschnitt album or Ballerman; 2) Guru Guru's Der Electrolurch; 3) anything by Release Music Orchestra; 4) anything from any of the first three Epitaph albums; Yatha Sidhra's A Meditation Mass.
  Mon. 6/30/14 12:45pm Dean:

Last one shoulda been numbered 5.
Avatar    Mon. 6/30/14 12:46pm Jeff Golick:

Thanks, @CAN and @Dean!

Ahoy-hoy, @glenn!
Avatar Mon. 6/30/14 12:46pm glenn:

my solid ground. my krautrock faves.
  Mon. 6/30/14 12:47pm CAN VUH DUUL:

When 808 State (of Pacific State fame) had a shop here in Manchester uk - called Eastern BLoc - and they had this as their old record of the week - something of an early classic house record - they of course into everything Chicago they could get their hands on and much coke as well!
Avatar    Mon. 6/30/14 1:02pm Jeff Golick:

About to exit "And Sovereignty" and head into the final portion, "Draw," both of which provide context for the song title.

  Mon. 6/30/14 1:10pm Dean:

I do not speak German, but I believe "ö" is pronounced like the "i" in "Sir" (per a web page that spells this stuff out). There's even a hint of "r."
  Mon. 6/30/14 1:12pm Dean:

Those guys are Middletown Orchestra personnel.
Avatar    Mon. 6/30/14 1:14pm Jeff Golick:

Ah - makes sense; thanks, Dean!

@holland oats! Greetings and all that.
Avatar Mon. 6/30/14 1:21pm Doug Schulkind:

Have ever told you about the time I called Mr. Braxton to set up an interview and he was a little annoyed because I called in the middle of a Georgetown basketball game during the NCAA tournament. He was gracious, but a little terse. Later on, I did the interview with a fellow college radio pal and it was beyond humbling. He kept talking about his hero Warne Marsh and my jaw kept collapsing into a puddle on the floor.
Avatar    Mon. 6/30/14 1:23pm Jeff Golick:

That's a good one, Doug. Were you then just a radio tyro?

The Graham Lock does a fantastic job of painting a real-life portrait of AB. And his love of hamburgers.
Avatar    Mon. 6/30/14 1:24pm Jeff Golick:

....Graham Lock BOOK...
Avatar Mon. 6/30/14 1:27pm Doug Schulkind:

A college radio tyro, indeed.
Avatar    Mon. 6/30/14 1:28pm Jeff Golick:

I'm guessing Braxton had heard and enjoyed Roscoe Mitchell's four-sax Nonaah, from 1977.
  Mon. 6/30/14 1:31pm Dean:

Not as impressive, but still fun is one of my Braxton stories. I flew from Southern California to Oakland to attend three nights of AB's five nights at Yoshi's for his Ghost Trance performances in 1997. I hadn't been to Berkeley for over 15 years, so I hung out downtown before heading to Jack London Square and Yoshi's. At the time, Berkeley Public Library was pre-renovation, a fairly well-used building. I remember climbing the steps to the music room, where the librarians piped in music. They were playing Braxton!
Avatar    Mon. 6/30/14 1:35pm Jeff Golick:

@Dean: that's some progressive librarianship right there.
  Mon. 6/30/14 1:41pm Dean:

Braxton played with Rova in the late '80s, too.
Avatar    Mon. 6/30/14 1:53pm listener james from westwood:

Digging the show today, gents! It's keeping me from throwing things after someone told me I need to redo hours' worth of work.
Avatar    Mon. 6/30/14 1:55pm Jeff Golick:

Glad to hear it, @listener james, though sympathies for the work agony. On the redo front, I feel your pain.
Avatar    Mon. 6/30/14 1:56pm Jeff Golick:

If you're digging this Braxton, there's much more where it came from: tricentricfoundation.org...
Avatar    Mon. 6/30/14 1:58pm listener james from westwood:

Thanks, Jeff. I would rage-quit and go see a movie midday a la Don Draper, but all that's out in this immediate area is summer crap.
Avatar    Mon. 6/30/14 2:00pm Jeff Golick:

Heh. Yeah. Kinda want to see Obvious Child, myself.
Avatar Mon. 6/30/14 2:05pm Doug Schulkind:

Gotta go take the kiddo to the orthodontist. Thanks for the bracing show, Jeff and Jeff!
Avatar Mon. 6/30/14 2:11pm Jeff J:

James - On the movie front, I can recommend The Rover, Ida, and Night Moves if they're anywhere near you.
Avatar    Mon. 6/30/14 2:12pm Jeff Golick:

@Doug: good luck! Doing that tmw am, myself.
Avatar    Mon. 6/30/14 2:18pm listener james from westwood:

Jeff & Jeff: Thanks for the movie recs. Some may actually be in this area; there's one theater in Bergen near me that doesn't always do the explosion films, and that might be running one of them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/30/14 2:29pm Uncle Michael:

I love this.

Do I hear Jackie-O Motherfucker early stuff? Just kidding. Henry Flynt's music is just amazing.

My daughter's Suzuki method violin lessons haven't gotten into this stuff yet.
  Mon. 6/30/14 2:49pm Dean:

Your daughter needs to take lessons from Ducati.
Avatar    Mon. 6/30/14 2:49pm Jeff Golick:

Yes, well, she also needs to practice more.

However, she did bake cupcakes this weekend, so all is forgiven.
  Mon. 6/30/14 2:54pm Dean:

We all need to practice more.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/30/14 2:55pm Uncle Michael:

At cupcakes.
  Mon. 6/30/14 2:56pm Dean:

Both supply and demand.

Longform show = longform applause. Well chosen, Jeff and Jeff; thanks!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/30/14 2:59pm Uncle Michael:

Thanks guys...great show today!
Avatar    Mon. 6/30/14 3:01pm Jeff Golick:

Thanks, james and UM. Was a blast; glad you could hang.
See y'all soon.

And do click on the x-ray head for more on these remarkable records...
