Artist Track Album Label Comments Special
 
Set 1: Psych, from quiet to acid. (Listen to this set: )
Stars Of The Lid  Madison (track 3) (Listen: )   Options Music For Nitrous Oxide  Sedimental  Slow, fairly quiet & peaceful, nice to play at a low volume.   
Subarachnoid Space  Square Wheels (track 2) (Listen: )   Options Endless Renovation  Relapse  Quiet & vaguely spooky to start, then easy+ psych rock with a bit of spookiness underneath.  ***  
Warlocks  Cosmic Letdown (track 5) (ended at -1:40) (Listen: )   Options Phoenix Album  Birdman  Kinda druggy & mysterious, builds and develops an edge, but still warm and highly sentimental.  ***  
Ubzub  Red Spot (track 9) (Listen: )   Options Alien Manna For Sleeping Monkees  Electro Motive  Slow+, acidy, twisted, druggy, a bit robotic - not warm at all.   
Gate  Prophet (track 4) and Rebel (track 5) (Listen: )   Options Golden  IMD  Really 1 long track. Serious, major acid.  ***  
Ubzub  Ed Gein (track 5) (Listen: )   Options Alien Manna For Sleeping Monkees  Electro Motive  Twisted acid, a little experimental, it rocks - in their fashion.  ***  
Randy Greif  Prizes! Prizes! (CD #2, track 2) (Listen: )   Options Alice In Wonderland  (unknown)  More serious acid - makes you feel the true mind-trip Alice is going through. It's rare that any interpretation really opens your doors of perception. This is one of them.  ***  
 
 
Mic break between Sets 1 & 2. Background music for it: (Listen to this set: )
Les Chakachas  Love is like a Violin (track 4)   Options Arriba!  RCA International  Phat, sentimental sound. Feels like it's the slow song at the record hop.   
 
 
Set 2: Psych rock: louder, but safer than Set 1. (Listen to this set: )
High Rise  Right On (track 4) (Listen: )   Options Psychobomb  PSF  The sound's a bit muddy, but the music is great, swirly, and long.   
ST 37  valentine alibi (track 11) (begun at -3:44) (Listen: )   Options Down On Us  Emperor Jones  The track itself is about 14 minutes in all, but uneven - so I just played the best part, which is fine, indeed.   
Skywave  Ceremony (CD #1, track 11) (Listen: )   Options Don't Shoot The Piano Player: Live From WFMU  WFMU  Deep, but a little raw, strong psych rock.   
Kinski  I Wouldn't Hurt A Fly (CD #1, track 2) (Listen: )   Options Don't Shoot The Piano Player: Live From WFMU  WFMU  Hymn-like, even mystical at moments. Also Glenn Branca-like. Also like the next piece in this set.  ***  
Acid Mothers Temple  In E (track 2) (Listen: )   Options Live In Japan  acidmothers.com  Recorded live December 9, 2001. Steadily almost speeded up, glorious sound and feel. This piece also makes me think not just of Glenn Branca, but "Sabre Dance" as done by Love Sculpture.  ***  
 
 
Mic break between Sets 2 & 3. Background music for it: (Listen to this set: )
Les Chakachas  Love is like a Violin (track 4)   Options Arriba!  RCA International  Phat, sentimental sound. Feels like it's the slow song at the record hop.   
 
 
Set 3: mostly quiet. (Listen to this set: )
Tokyo 77  Sings Do Not Use (track 2) (Listen: )   Options Tokyo 77  Intone  Very quiet, fairly spare, piano, some very subduedly spaced sfx, reminds me of Morton Feldman in the later part of his life. It's not quite in Feldman's hauntingly spare dimension, but we've gone through the gate and are in the ballpark.   
Magic Carpathians Project  Something You Can Hide In (track 1) (Listen: )   Options Water Dreams  Fly Music  Medieval feel at the beginning, resonant, then becomes sort of what I'd call reverbed renaissance rock, with the vocals starting to make me think of (good)Yoko Ono.   
Stone Breath  solomon's song (track 4) (Listen: )   Options Lanterna Lucis Viriditatis  Dark Holler     
Farmers Market  Old Slow Melody (track 12) (Listen: )   Options Farmers Market  Winter & Winter  Bulgarian-influenced, even if the core of the group is Norwegian. Slow, melancholy.   
 
 
Mic break between Sets 3 & 4. Background music for it: (Listen to this set: )
Les Chakachas  Love is like a Violin (track 4)   Options Arriba!  RCA International  Phat, sentimental sound. Feels like it's the slow song at the record hop.   
 
 
Set 4: the old radio show portion of the evening. (Listen to this set: )
Sam Spade  The Rushlight Diamond Caper   Options Originally broadcast July 4, 1948.  (none)  One of the best episodes. A dissolute and dissipated nephew who "has criminal tendencies and the mentality of a snail", a gigantic diamond, an arranged marriage, machinations over money - and murder.  ***  
 
 
Mic break between Sets 4 & 5. Background music for it: (Listen to this set: )
Les Chakachas  Love is like a Violin (track 4)   Options Arriba!  RCA International  Phat, sentimental sound. Feels like it's the slow song at the record hop.   
 
 
Set 5: sort of a mystically sentimental, accordion-based set. (Listen to this set: )
Biota  (no title) (track 24) (Listen: )   Options Object Holder  ReR  Warm, ambient, sentimental, but also dark.  ***  
Gate  39.26 (track 3) (Listen: )   Options The Lavender Head Vol. 3  Precious Metal  Warm, sentimental, a little active - just a little too fast to be elegiacal.  ***  
Miss Murgatroid  Ballad Of The Panatonic (track 4) (Listen: )   Options Myoclyonic Melodies  WIN  Solid, deep, even powerful. Makes me think of classical organ music. The more I listen to it, the more extraordinary I think this piece is.  ***  
 
 
Mic break between Sets 5 & 6. Background music for it: (Listen to this set: )
Les Chakachas  Love is like a Violin (track 4)   Options Arriba!  RCA International  Phat, sentimental sound. Feels like it's the slow song at the record hop.   
 
 
Set 6 (Listen to this set: )
Louis Armstrong & Earl Hines  Muggles (Side A, track 4)   Options The Louis Armstrong Story - Volume 3  Columbia  Harry Potter fans: take note of the song title. Just a nice, easy-going piece of music.  ***
