Uncle Michael's avatar View Uncle Michael's profile Options

Turning over the toy box and jamming together the gloriously mismatched musical Lincoln Logs, Legos and Tinker Toys from Tin Pan Alley pluggers, pickled egg tavern weepers, lockstep soul ensembles, skinny-tie power poppers, Eurotrash ravers, moontanned art school rockers, drunken soccer anthems and anything else that seems like a good idea at the time. There are no guilty pleasures.

@still b/p: If I get word of the consequences, I shall! As to finding out, I recognized the name of a geneticist but wanted to specify his national origin; the author listed "Asian American," but I wanted to list the actual Asian country (so far as it's pertinent to the text, which is a whole other query I've added). I Googled; the Wikipedia snippet that came up as a preview read VERY familiar, I scanned vs. my MS, and boom: barely rewritten. So, in CSI: Miami terms:

I thought she was singing "Sugar Time." So I got up off the couch and got the cake out of the fridge. Now, however, that I've sat down in front of my computer with my piece of cake, I see that it is not "Sugar Time" after all. Not sure what to do now.

Well, love is certainly a big part of Sturgeon's message (always is), but I don't think I'm getting any of the "gestalt" aspect. I recommend the book if anyone has not read it. I did so when I was 9, and it has affected me ever after.

Hey UM. Thanks for keeping me near my desk.

Vibrators are also a tough segue album. Abrupt, abrupt, abrupt.

Eddie and the Hot Rods. Always thought there was a connection between the two (pretty sure I was wrong.) Such similar pub rock roots.

Its all great, but side two of Pure Mania--Stiff Little Fingers/Wrecked on You/I need a Slave"--most relentless and nasty three-song combo ever. (Not sure there's actually a stats category for that one.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/23/15 12:57pm efd:

Related: When searching Google for info on the Vibrators it would behoove one to include the word "band."
  Fri. 1/23/15 12:57pm Dean:

To me, that one year between the first E&tHR and the Vibrators made a huge difference. The HR's pub roots were strengthened a year or so later when Graeme Douglas joined.

Love, love, love Dr. Feelgood.

A miserable confession: I had all of these LPs back in the '80s, but dumped 'em, all except the Vibrators.

Another weird Gentle Giant gig: they appeared at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, opening for Gary Wright, Peter Frampton, and Yes. It was a long day.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 1/23/15 1:05pm pacific standard simon:

There was a connection between Feelgood and The Hot Rods, though. What I heard was that one of the major points of contention between Wilko and Lee was Wilko's desire to include his buddy, one-time Hot Rod Lew Lewis, in the Feelgoods. Lew being a harmonica player, this did not go down well with Lee.

Caveat: NSTCI is a paperback, but well worth it if the scene is your thing. Would love to read the Stiff history, too. I did retain DAMNED DAMNED DAMNED, an album that, were I to be interred (which I won't), I would want to accompnay me in the pine box.

There are no coincidences. Too cool, re. M. Shelley interview.

Bummed I couldn't catch DANGER:DIABOLIK at that FMU movie night, with the ever-droll Fabio hosting.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 1/23/15 1:18pm Brian in UK:

Sounds like Frank Ifield.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 1/23/15 1:18pm Uncle Michael:

Naturally Fabio did that....he's so cool.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 1/23/15 1:22pm Uncle Michael:

Fabio comes up and I have a track cued from Voodoo Party...no coincidences, indeed!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/23/15 1:23pm northguineahills:

I was going to say, a little homage to fabio, nice!
  Fri. 1/23/15 1:23pm Dean:

Bound to happen, statistically speaking. There are only, what, a couple dozen records shared among FMU DJs, right?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 1/23/15 1:23pm Uncle Michael:

It's the album Mr. Giant Man is from, btw.

I understood Michael called Clay Pigeon though, which is right after Fabio's show, so not really *that* coincidental, nessy paw?

@Uncle Michael - I guess it depends on your definition of cool...buncha Lincoln center stuff for next week...mostly broadway singer stuff. I did get Talib Kweli yesterday which I file under "cool"

very hard not to sing along with this Os Mutantes. I remember how much it blew my freakin mind when I first heard it.

...and by sing along, I don't mean I know portuguese, though I did do an english translation acoustic version of it many years ago when I was obsessed with it. I mostly just sing along with the backup vocals...and the guitar.

The roller coaster vid and Joe Simon groove were actually in unlikely smooth-slidin' synch for a while. Souler coaster.

Hi UM. The upside of my kids being home sick is i got to cut out of work early to hang w/them and catch all of HDT live!

Speaking of being grateful (you@2:30), you planning on being in Chicago early July?

Santos, I'm afraid that's not in the cards. I sure know a ton of people that are going.

My "need more" take-aways today: Sahara Cellphones and Shirley Bassey. Shirley's one of those artists whom, for years, I've been meaning to appreciate more directly, instead of just by happenstance.
Great show.

That version was quite lovely. Thanks for that and the excellent tunes that preceded it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/23/15 3:00pm Mike East:

yeah, still b/p...there's a window in the door to the studio...and they're not sound proof, so I can hear it. Although I try not to be the creepy guy staring through the window.

Just carry a clipboard and take notes and check your watch every so often...very busy, attentive and purposeful.
