Good morning all! A cool pre-fall morning at the Virtual Diner. I ordered my usual eggs-over-light and decided to splurge on the toasted bagel. Coffee on the way.
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 3:13am Sem Chumbo:

A little smoked salmon here, on a Montreal bagel, and a schmeer. Coffee, of course, but not that monkey-poo kind. Too much fun ensues.

Nothing special, he`s 5 Years old. I got some Cramps Records, Date with Elvis in orange vinyl. He always want`s to hear that. So maybe something like that if it fit`s with the Programm. Black Lips is also working.

Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 3:46am Andy in Berlin:

@Bill - I love this track but it's making my eggs fly around the room. Marge the waitress is looking at me funny.
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 3:46am Brian in UK:

Some works, some is a bit muddled but that is the nature of the game. Only the Martins could have got away with doing it.
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 3:48am Bill Mac:

@Andy Wild enough? Maybe?
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 3:49am Brian in UK:

Andy. Scramble eggs. Toast at four o'clock coming out of the florescent light. Hash browns caught a packet, downed in the granola.
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 3:49am Fran:

I haven't heard the Love album other than seeing that documentary on it at the time it came out but I have some Marmite feelings about a lot of the post Beatles releases such as Free As A Bird, Let It Be...Naked etc
  Sat. 8/23/14 3:49am P-90:

Now this here is some wild musics
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 3:49am Andy in Berlin:

@ Bill - not complaining, merely reporting. Now Marge on the other hand...

Beatles & AC/DC do not allow Spotify to use their material.

Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 3:53am Fran:

I'm open minded Jay so will give it a whirl maybe!
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 3:53am Brian in UK:

Is it a mash-up when it is all the same artists material?
  Sat. 8/23/14 3:53am P-90:

No, not maybe: pick up those mash-ups and play 'em

The acoustic piece on the death metal album....better than the disco cut on the Peter Hammill album I guess?

@KP - Were your ears ringing a couple weeks ago? We played something from 7&7 comp
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 4:04am Fran:

I doubt it Bill - although Hammill always said he was a 'soulboy' in his youth I think he meant torturing souls - the Georgio Moroder mix of Man Erg I can confidently say is non existent as is the Peter Hammill disco movie which the Bee Gees just beat him to the post with - Peter's Saturday Night Feverish Nightmare only needed a little editing apparently?
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 4:07am Stanley:

And the album didn't even feature on the Mojo weird list!
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 4:07am Sem Chumbo:

I like being there.
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 4:11am Fran:

This Soul Jazz release is lovely - bought the vinyl a while back. They have released a great series on Punk/Post Punk too and some recent great Brazilian reissues - great label and also shop in Soho London!

Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 4:21am Bill Mac:

@Jay Ohhhhh, I get it... yeah, watch the show, don't record it.
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 4:21am Fran:

Brian - well done for lasting over an hour to mention the Kate Bush subject! Love a lot of what Kate Bush has done but if there ever was an over hyped series of overpriced concerts largely populated by non fans who just want to brag on Facebook or similar about the fact they are going and posting ridiculous pictures of a ticket, blurred image of a small lady singing with session musicians etc in a smug way - this is it! My theory is that they will be treated to perhaps 2-3 'hits' a lot of album tracks many non fans don't know and the odd ' thank you for being so special' blather from the stage. I also have a theory that she may not last 28 days or whatever due to nervous exhaustion, stage fright or whatever. In my book I have saved the money for around 15 gigs by interesting artists that need the support - rant over!
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 4:22am Bill Mac:

She doesn't tour much does she?
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 4:23am Brian in UK:

Bill, nicely understated. If you mean no tours since 1979.
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 4:24am Fran:

and...................the camera phone thing. Yes annoying but unfortunately the modern world and the odd snap I can handle/do myself if I think I won't be in someone's face. What is worse is the hullaballoo caused by over officious staff who annoy everyone else telling them to stop or as happens sometimes idiotically shining a torch in on someone and blinding everyone else in the process - rant 2 over!
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 4:24am Bill Mac:

Yeah, my statement was made in total ignorance, not subtle sarcasm.
  Sat. 8/23/14 4:25am coalhard:

Hippies love Kate ALL THAT MATTERS
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 4:25am Brian in UK:

Fran not a rant. London or modern audiences. They have no gig ettiqutte.
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 4:26am Bill Mac:

I'm reluctant to take pictures at shows, and of course they always look stupid. It's really not necessary in the long run.

What--did US just legalize pot only to hear bad shit about Kate
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 4:27am Stanley:

Fran re:Kate Bush - well said. The Great British Public are at it again. Collective hysteria and vanity.
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 4:27am Brian in UK:

Fran were you at Caf Oto just before Christmas to see Lonnie Holley?
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 4:30am Fran:

I'll take pictures at a standing show if I am real close up and not annoying anyone, never use flash etc but other than if you can't get a decent photo why would you do it. Etiquette at gigs - those who come to a gig to have the same loud conversation they could have in a pub without paying for it and annoying all around them......yup, its gone Brian! Although that said at Slint recently I was expecting the chattering classless and got a surprise by some respect for the quiet-loud-quiet dynamic - wheyhey!
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 4:32am Stanley:

Here's my suggestion for bands today. At the start request everyone to take as many pictures as they want during the first number and also announce that a recording of the gig will be up on YouTube the next day. So put the fucking devices away and enjoy the live experience.
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 4:33am Fran:

Yes Stanley - collective hysteria once only reserved for Paul 'Fabmaccawackythumbsup' Macca and his mop top pals! Brian - no, I saw him in Salford at Islington Mill - superb!
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 4:34am Fran:

Stanley - Ry Cooder did that in Newcastle a few years back regarding photos and it sort of worked - gets my vote!
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 4:34am Guido from Cologne:

Grass Roots : maybe a bit underestimated over the time.
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 4:34am Stanley:

Oh and I forgot here's a selfie of me enjoying the show.
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 4:34am Bill Mac:

I may have brought this up at some other point in the past, but I went to see the White Stripes at a bar in Philly before they broke - place was packed @ 150 people but you could tell that the "Friday Night Crowd" were c out in full force - yapping in between songs instead of being involved with the show.
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 4:35am Jay/London:

@ stanley I just do not understand why people watch the gig
though a tiny screen ... you got my vote too

Camera phones don't work in dark. I think they should shackle people who try to use them. Also tablets

I honestly think there is a generation that if the internet was removed for a week or a smart phone was shut down they would possibly die of fear! Bring back Sunday School, jigsaws, encyclopedias, 'Why Don't You' and 'How!' to encourage brass rubbing, fossil collecting etc

I especially enjoy their early acoustic stuff, Fran.

Were Love originally called the Grass Roots then had to change because there was already a group with this name.

sounds like you want to turn the gig into a fetish place

Bill, you need some Pete Frame Family Trees. His Zigzag magazine was the first and best.

Brian that sounds familiar

The only band allowed to make a career of farewell tours is Status Quo - that is actually a law!
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 4:56am Bill Mac:

Do they ever NOT tour?
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 4:59am Fran:

Only when searching for the lost chord Bill

Brian you are right about Love

PF Sloan co-wrote that song

Funny that Crimson comes up at this point, because Bob Fripp was vigorously fighting the uphill battle against rampant photography at concerts over 30 years ago. His concern was always the same as Kate Bush's: that the atmosphere this creates adversely affects the band's connection with the audience and the overall experience for both artists and patrons. There's an idea there also that if one respects a performer enough to purchase a ticket and take the time and effort to attend a show, one might pay some repect to the artist's request not to go crazy taking pictures instead of allowing the focus to remain on the live experience. Of course, now every 12 year old with a phone has a sophistcated still/video and sound recording device with him at all times.......Bob's pretty much had to give up on the cause. Still, if Kate wants to make her wishes known to her audience, it can only exert some positive influence on the situation, however slight the effect might be in the end.

Hey bill it's your fellow 3 to 6 am dj colleague , I'm not sure I'll be able to sleep until my show tomorrow at 3 am... How will I do it..??? 48 hours awake...
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 5:07am Fran:

Gal Costa - whoohoo! Some of her early stuff is wild - a great track called Tuareg always does it for me! Steeleye Span soon? Hope it's not from their best forgotten glam years as Steeleye Spandex or their internet only album that nobody could download - Steeleye Spam.

You know rRose Kemp?
Maddy Prior's and Rick kemp's daughter!

Hey Jon good luck with that... is this your only option or can't you sleep?
  Sat. 8/23/14 5:08am KP:

I saw Steeleye Span in Central Park quite a while ago. Opening act was Bonnie Raitt and she was super but Maddy Prior

@Guido Someone else I'll need to get an eye out for thanks
@Fran - I seem to remember someone pointed out a really sultry performance from Gals early days - from what I remember of it - wowsers
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 5:11am Fran:

P-90 - I think the main atmosphere at Kate Bush's concert will be expensive smelling perfumes and aftershaves sadly. I hope genuine fans are the main body of the crowd but I doubt it
  Sat. 8/23/14 5:11am KP:

Guido! How are you. I unhibernated just to say hello
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 5:12am Brian in UK:

I've paid MY money to see you so bugger off what you want bleedin' artiste. Just play the bluddy music and get off. They will be someone new on next week and you will be history. Wadda you mean short attention span, I've written this havn't I?
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 5:12am Bill Mac:

@Jon - Should be a pretty interesting episode to tune into. I'm gassed now and I had a nice nap before I got in
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 5:14am Fran:

Bill - Gal made some amazing and wild early records - her more modern day 'supper club' act is sad in comparison!

This reminds me, the sainted one played Beaverteeth last week.

Yeah back to Kate Bush, id say a phone is a phone but draw the line at tablets. They would be in your line of vision. The Yankees ban them

I just looked up the price of a Kate Bush ticket £145!!!
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 5:19am Fran:

KP - it won't be long before someone has the idea of a 42" phone screen so that you can take huge pictures, annoy more people...in High definition and provide employment for theatre interns (unpaid of course as is the modern British way) to hold the screen at either side so that you can luxuriate in the experience and maximise annoyance for those behind you
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 5:19am Guido from Cologne:

OMAR KORSHIT!
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 5:20am Bill Mac:

@Stanley - Can you tell if it's a general admission ticket?
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 5:20am Sem Chumbo:

The 42" hover-phone: the Kate Bush never can say goodbye edition.
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 5:20am Guido from Cologne:

His best, from where do you have that?
(Debut on "Voice Of Lebanon") , but he is Egyptian actually)
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 5:21am Fran:

£145 - alarmingly that seems cheap unless they have all these anti tout restrictions and its a risky buy
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 5:22am Jay/London:

@ stanley heard the tickets sold out in 15 mins is that one on a site .... this track is great Bill
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 5:22am Brian in UK:

Stanley, you can get a full inflatable for a monkey (that's slang for £500) or a pony (£25) with patches.

Something else I came across on the Ipod - we gots vinyl

A pony with patches. Oh, the memories.
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 5:24am Brian in UK:

Patches I'm depending on you son.
  Sat. 8/23/14 5:24am P-90:

@ Stanley: That's in line with Boroadway/West End prices for musical theater etc, and less than top-price tickets at, for instance, any of the periodic Eagles' "farewell tours"...
  Sat. 8/23/14 5:24am KP:

Bill I don't know the venue but it is reserved with various levels available on scalper market

The whole original album is great!
check the use of synthesizer in belly dance music of 1975
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 5:25am Bill Mac:

I'm trying to recall the most money I ever spent on a show. 65 bucks for Tom Waits comes to mind.
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 5:27am Fran:

Same for me - Tom Waits was my most pricey at £70
  Sat. 8/23/14 5:27am KP:

Even @ pounds, I don't think that price is out line. People pay as much for horrendous Broadway shows. It's nothing to her audience
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 5:28am Fran:

KP - I would distinguish between audience and fans
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 5:28am Brian in UK:

Hard to justify anything over £30. Never have so far.
  Sat. 8/23/14 5:29am KP:

Quality is remembered long after the price is forgotten. My credo.
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 5:29am Bill Mac:

@Fran - I think we paid well for Quo tix when they came to NYC 10 years ago,
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 5:31am Brian in UK:

Michael Holding was a wonderful fast bowler from the West Indies, known as whispering death. A beautiful action and very fast.

Though they don't know it, my amnesiac dipsomaniac customers await my arrival. See you later, Bill, and all, been some collection of fine spins this morning.
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 5:31am Fran:

The Quo - I'm not sure they would cause too much of a ticket rush commotion nowadays
  Sat. 8/23/14 5:31am KP:

I paid $175 each for World Cup tickets at Giants Stadium. List price.

Phillies 2008 World Series tix - $150 apiece I think. It rained for hours.

Just a quick hit at that ol' pinata and I'm outa here.
Til next week.
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 5:37am Bill Mac:

I saw the Who (1st farewell tour). I think those tickets were 50 a pop, which was about 45 bucks more than I wanted to pay. Remember watching Pete Townsend on a huge screen.

Hold it firmly, Stanley. Need Coffee.

@Stanley Has been as always. Take care of yourself - and yep - smack dat ass!
  Sat. 8/23/14 5:39am KP:

I always wonder why people spend well over $100 for a dinner for two but draw line at concert tickets. Seeing a performer you love is kind of priceless
  Sat. 8/23/14 5:39am P-90:

I don't think orchestra seats for any act at Radio City have been below $100 in a decade or so, at least as far back as the Emmylou Harris/Mark Knopfler show I saw there in 2002 or -03. Sometimes a lot more...
They wanted about that much a month or so ago for Yes- -without Jon Anderson! ( Or Wakeman either)
  Sat. 8/23/14 5:41am KP:

Sports too.
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 5:43am Guido from Cologne:

I'm most happy with the middle sized shows, if good sight and good sound. Biggest problem is good sound though.

I saw the Who and the Clash together at JFK Stadium in Philadelphia in 1982.
  Sat. 8/23/14 5:50am KP:

Good club shows used to be the rule here. I was never crazy about theater type concerts, except the Fillmore East
  Sat. 8/23/14 5:50am Falling_Angel:

When we our to our seats, someone had already thrown up on them.
  Sat. 8/23/14 5:50am P-90:

@ Guido: Absolutely, the middle-size theaters are by far the best venues these days. And yes, sound can either be very,very good, or ridiculously poor.

He was still sitting there, half passed out.

I saw the happy jack who at Westbury music fair. Fourth row. Tix were probably $15.

Great show, Bill. This tune is very familiar.
Remember DRIVE SAFELY, IT'S THE OTHER GUY YOU HAVE TO WATCH.
  Sat. 8/23/14 5:53am Falling_Angel:

But saw David Bowie at the Cap Center in DC right around the same time, and he really did make the arena concept work.
  Sat. 8/23/14 5:54am KP:

Bill was that the "Who on Ice" tour. I've seen them maybe 16 times
  Sat. 8/23/14 5:54am P-90:

I think we forget a little bit these days just how utterly wasted and rowdy people routinely got at shows in the 70s - 80s
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 5:55am Bill Mac:

Hey all, awesome speaks all around gald to see KP here for the dooration. Never got to see Bowie, should have caught him during his Philly residency but he was doing the soul thing... ehhhhh....
Avatar Sat. 8/23/14 5:55am Brian in UK:

@P-90 well you could smoke for a start.
  Sat. 8/23/14 5:56am KP:

That might be included a couple of Townshend solo shows
  Sat. 8/23/14 5:56am KP:

See ya, Bill, Guido
  Sat. 8/23/14 5:56am Falling_Angel:

Did not like slam dancing at all!
