Flash Strap's avatar View Flash Strap's profile Options

This is where all of culture and all of time are collapsed into one seductive portal and viewed through the panoramic lens of the exotic. Come and embark on an armchair-travel virtual-voyage to the heart of timeless darkness and beyond; embrace the numinous monolith of the exotic immensity. Let us find that place where hybridization meets its destiny as pure fantasy. Let us become observers observing those others who are ourselves. You wear your mask and I'll wear mine.

This track is so key to me: "let's see what you've done to the church of the American Indian.... wahana lu lei"

it pops all the themes, makes them hurt
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 7:18pm Flash Strap:

That's little Van Dyke down there, by the way. He looks like he's at his Bar Mitzvah with a young plump Billy Jack

Did I miss you talk about what that photo is on the bottom?

Oh! I guess I didn't :)

I have some slippers exactly like those on Brian. Unnecessary, by the way, for 362 days of the year here in California.

Beat you to the punch Gary! Super pleased to see you by the way! Great show last night, listened to it today

I have the same slippers as well Carm
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 7:24pm Gary:

Apologies if you covered this in the intro, but did you bite the bullet and buy the box set? (I didn't even know there existed one, but just looked at it on Amazon)
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 7:24pm Flash Strap:

Hello Mayuko!
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 7:25pm Flash Strap:

well.... I didn't BUY it, alas. I do HAVE it, and it's essential. Depending on how devoted you are to outtakes and studio patter. The 2 disc version could do, as it's reconstructed Smile is THE one, I think
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 7:27pm Flash Strap:

*its
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 7:28pm Flash Strap:

anyone else got it?
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 7:31pm hyde:

nope. i have my dusty old 12" of Smiley Smile but not the smile sessions box.
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 7:31pm listener james from westwood:

It was on FMU, years ago, when I first heard the rough cuts and takes and instrumental bits that made up some of the Beach Boys' later songs. It's not that I didn't know how much layering and how many takes went into producing their music, but I'd never heard the process in such detail. Amazing and exacting craft.
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 7:32pm ndbob:

I've heard it but don't have it
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 7:33pm Gary:

I had the Brian Wilson Presents version (if that's what it was called), but Holy God it gave no indication of how awesome this is so far.
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 7:34pm Flash Strap:

One of the best things is hearing how brilliant and not crazy Brian sounds. There's also just so many ideas going on, it's almost unbearable. It's a universe splitting in half for an overabundance of life
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 7:34pm Flash Strap:

I really don't like the Brian Wilson Presents, though I want to
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/10/15 7:37pm Santos L Halper:

Ooohh, just tuned in. I've got the SMiLE box (thanks Mom!) and it's pretty great. Kind of hypnotic, all the tons of outtakes and bits and pieces
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 7:40pm listener james from westwood:

Whoa! Did not know that about the Marty Robbins influence, but will listen for it next time I hear Robbins!
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 7:40pm hyde:

huh, i never heard that marty robbins thing. that sort of makes sense.
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 7:48pm ndbob:

still one of my favorite Beach Boys songs!
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 7:49pm Flash Strap:

Mine too, Bob. I love the way he shreds his vocals, and this totally Zombies keyboard break
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 7:51pm Flash Strap:

I love this one too. The sound of a total genius slacking off. Shoulda been a huge hit
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 7:52pm ndbob:

yep _ I played the LP endlessly
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 7:53pm Flash Strap:

one of the best of the period
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 7:55pm Flash Strap:

oh yes. what a song
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 7:58pm hyde:

this one's my favorite song on this record. it's so odd.
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 7:58pm ndbob:

great one here too yep Hyde - very strange lyrics
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 7:59pm ndbob:

excellent show Evan - will have to catch the rest on the archive
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 7:59pm Flash Strap:

See ya Hyde! But I'm just gettin' started!
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 8:00pm Flash Strap:

"I talked your folks out of making you cut off your hair"
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 8:02pm Flash Strap:

Dennis' emergence as the 2nd best songwriter of the Boys. Forever waits in the wings
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 8:02pm hyde:

no, i'm still here! later, ndb!
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 8:02pm Andrew S:

enjoying this show a lot
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 8:03pm Flash Strap:

Sorry Hyde! I of course meant to say farewell to NDB. egg's on my face, wihskers are on yours

@UM yikes! good luck.
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 8:19pm Flash Strap:

Well don't send it my way, man! Whattaya got? Twisters?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/10/15 8:20pm Uncle Michael:

As long as it's not damaging, it's cool. I find thunder to be a mind-altering substance. I don't think this is tornadic.
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 8:21pm Flash Strap:

Yeah, that's doable. The tornadoes are awful but a good thunderstorm is just fine
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 8:22pm hyde:

20/20 isn't bad overall, but i sure find that "cotton fields" cover to open side 2 tough to take
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 8:22pm hyde:

hope you're not about to play it, heh
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 8:23pm Flash Strap:

I am not. I agree with you, that one is such a hot stinker
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/10/15 8:23pm Uncle Michael:

I like the Highwaymen version of Cotton Fields. It's in my show queue.
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 8:23pm Flash Strap:

DEEP & WIDE
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 8:24pm Flash Strap:

haven't heard that version, look forward to it
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/10/15 8:25pm Uncle Michael:

I hope you don't mind that I played "Forever" with a shout to you.
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 8:26pm Flash Strap:

How could I mind? Forever could never be played enough times!
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 8:28pm hyde:

yeah, i never get sick of hearing forever
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/10/15 8:28pm Uncle Michael:

It fit in well in a rather wistful, bittersweet, melancholic set.
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 8:28pm Gary:

Great, now I'm obligated to YouTube "Beach Boys" + "Cotton Fields" after the show
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 8:28pm Flash Strap:

This is the song that snapped Mike Love's twig-like mind. WHAT DOES IT MEAN? WHAT DOES IT MEAN?
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 8:30pm Flash Strap:

specifically this lyric:
Over and over
The crow cries, uncover the cornfield
Over and over
The thresher and hover the wheat field
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/10/15 8:30pm Santos L Halper:

"snapped Mike Love's twig-like mind". Priceless! : D
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/10/15 8:31pm Uncle Michael:

Gary, stick with the Highwaymen's "folk scare" era version:

www.youtube.com...
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 8:32pm hyde:

and then they close the record with this one, which is flat out amazing! side 2 of 20/20 is so weird.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/10/15 8:33pm Uncle Michael:

Mike had depth.

Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 8:34pm Flash Strap:

Mike has always looked like an embedded FBI agent, sent to infiltrate the surf scene.
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 8:34pm Gary:

But I need to hear the "stinker" version
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 8:35pm Flash Strap:

I admire your intrepid attitude Gary

He looks like Viv Stanshall with Sexy Sady.

Absolutely, UM. God do I love Nilsson.

Adios NGH!

I checked and I've played Harry 27 times in 117 shows...far outstripping any other artist.
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 9:00pm Flash Strap:

well, he does pretty much outstrip every other artist
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/10/15 9:03pm Uncle Michael:

agreed
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/10/15 9:03pm coelacanth:

who's lead voc here?
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 9:05pm Flash Strap:

I think I actually first got really into the Beach Boys after I had sort of burned down Nilsson thru overlistening. They were the only thing that seemed to fill the void
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 9:05pm Flash Strap:

I actually don't know, C. My guess would be Carl?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/10/15 9:07pm Uncle Michael:

I would be sad if I ever grew weary of Harry.
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 9:08pm Flash Strap:

It was more that I wanted to make sure I never would. It was 24/7 for a while. Of course, now I have that problem with the Boys, more often than not
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/10/15 9:09pm Uncle Michael:

I had to back off of Scott Walker for that reason.
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 9:09pm Flash Strap:

thios one was cowritten with Darryl Dragon
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/10/15 9:09pm coelacanth:

(i {particularly} liked that vocal on "loop de loop")

...i always can enjoy Harry; but then i think i know less than 1/2 his output.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/10/15 9:09pm melinda:

That would be sad thing, UM. I've stopped listening to some music for quite a long time to avoid that happening, but then having to stop is sad in itself.

You and I have similar issues, UM. Scott Walker forever

Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 9:13pm Flash Strap:

Carl played every instrument on this track, laid down all the vocals
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/10/15 9:13pm Uncle Michael:

Melinda, I reached that common Beatles saturation point that so many of us do. It;s kind of nice to now be back to being able to hear how certain of their stuff is so good that it truly transcends that familiarity. It's almost like new music again in those moments.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/10/15 9:13pm melinda:

Fourth of July was very nice.

UM that's great that you can hear the Beatles in fresh way once again, even if it's just some moments. I tend to rotate my favorite music on a seasonal basis over the last several years to avoid burnout.

UM, i completely relate to that about the beatles....i can even enjoy "hey jude" once-in-a-while again! (though i'd rather hear Wilson Pickett's version)
...AT LEAST once/year now i have an all-beatles-partial-day; usually between 3 & 6 hours of beatles. but i didn't listen to them for many years.

I just heard, I think it's coming my way tonight as well

This is lovely. I listened to the BB albums you're featuring tonight precisely never.

This IS the best Beach Boys song. I mean, it has to be

Jazzed to hear about the new shows! Doug, you're building an empire!
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 9:42pm Mayuko:

Doug, I was excited to see that Sam Segal was already shown our program schedule!! So we'll have 4 humans this coming Monday, right?
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 9:47pm Flash Strap:

I'm closing out the evening with a little more Smile, mainly the Elements Suite
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 9:48pm Doug Schulkind:

@Mayuko
Sam is now on the schedule, but he will debut on September 21!

That's Paul Mccartney chewing celery percussively
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 9:49pm Flash Strap:

I like this version of Vegetable so much more than the one on Smiley Smile, which I do also like pretty fine
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 9:51pm Mayuko:

@Doug oh, his playlist said "Upcoming events: Monday, September 14th, 9pm - Midnight". Maybe he needs to fix that? I will still mention that he'll start on 21st anyway!
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 9:53pm Mayuko:

I just bought some celeries this evening, now I wanna practice eating em percussively too.
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 9:54pm Flash Strap:

oh me too

I have some bok choy...hardly the same...
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 9:56pm Flash Strap:

Once again, this version is so interestingly different from the Smiley version. More bounce!

The Elements Suite, such as it is, is Vega-tables (earth), Wind Chimes (air), Fire (Mrs. O'Leary's Cow) (fire of course), and Love to Say Dada (water)
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 9:57pm hyde:

yeah, these are a lot cooler
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 9:58pm Flash Strap:

Fire (Mrs. O'Leary's Cow) is of course the track where Brian had a fire going in the studio, had everyone wearing firemen's helmets, etc. and eventually came to feel it had psychokinetic properties when a nearby fire broke out. he may or may not have tried to destroy the tapes in fear
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 9:59pm Flash Strap:

"Yeah, I’m going to call this 'Mrs. O’Leary’s Fire' and I think it might just scare a whole lot of people."
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 10:00pm Flash Strap:

hahaha so many repeating motifs! it really is a kooky symphony

The heavens have opened up here.

A cell is passing through that's been dropping 3" per hour.
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 10:04pm Flash Strap:

Seriously! Such track placement. That's the way he had it ordered, more or less
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 10:04pm Flash Strap:

oh hee, UM, I thought you meant sonically.
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 10:05pm Flash Strap:
