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.

I had to stop watching The Paul Lynde Halloween Special right in the middle of a Kiss song to come over here so, y'know, this better be good!

Hello Carmichael! Warm welcome Sadhu! I'll do my best to top Lynde, Hyde! Can it be done? is Dr. John a match for one of theguys from Kiss?
Avatar Thu. 10/29/15 7:04pm Sadhu Sadhu:

Dr John sure nailed the makeup a long time before kiss thou.

I saw Dr. John on SCTV, performing at Jonny La Rue's Polynesian joint. "But I ain't wearin' no grass skoit!"
Avatar Thu. 10/29/15 7:07pm Flash Strap:

That musta been amazing Carm!
Avatar Thu. 10/29/15 7:07pm Sadhu Sadhu:

What always struck me about Dr John, was how he pretty much is the only one who pulled that new orleans/voodoo thing to the max. One would expect there was atleast 10 or 20 other groups out there that would do something similar and pull it of pretty well, but i really havent found any good contestors.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/29/15 7:08pm hyde:

@Carmichael whoa, I don't remember that
Avatar Thu. 10/29/15 7:08pm ndbob:

I remember hearing this for the first time - my friend bought the LP - and we really didn't know anything about Dr. John
Avatar Thu. 10/29/15 7:09pm Flash Strap:

I agree Sadhu, although there is Prof. Longhair and Screamin' Jay, to an extent
Avatar Thu. 10/29/15 7:10pm Sadhu Sadhu:

Yea, this must be one of my all time favourite opening tracks. Sucks you in from the get go.
Avatar Thu. 10/29/15 7:10pm Sadhu Sadhu:

@Flash. Yea, Longhair is great, but there isnt that much voodoo spookiness going on in his stuff.

Curious George theme song? Maybe not right for this show?

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/29/15 7:25pm Little Danny:

Fun fact and side note: in L.A. Rebennack was also involved in one of the greatest pop records of them all, the Cake's "Baby That's Me." It's a girl group side that shares little with the New Orleans/voodoo thing, but it is nonetheless swirling and psychedelic in its own way. www.youtube.com...
Avatar Thu. 10/29/15 7:25pm Sadhu Sadhu:

Such a night is great. One of my favourite, often overlooked Dr John tracks would be Life from In the right place
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/29/15 7:26pm Carmichael:

Here you go. no performance, but a great ending to Polynesiantown:: www.youtube.com...
Avatar Thu. 10/29/15 7:26pm Flash Strap:

Oh yeah. Life is choice. Almost was gonna play it tonight, but decided to stay hard with night trippin'

That's a Toussaint song right?

Avatar Thu. 10/29/15 7:35pm Flash Strap:

from the foreword of Confederacy of Dunces: "There is a New Orleans city accent . . . associated with downtown New Orleans, particularly with the German and Irish Third Ward, that is hard to distinguish from the accent of Hoboken, Jersey City, and Astoria, Long Island, where the Al Smith inflection, extinct in Manhattan, has taken refuge. The reason, as you might expect, is that the same stocks that brought the accent to Manhattan imposed it on New Orleans."
Avatar Thu. 10/29/15 7:37pm Sadhu Sadhu:

@Flash: Damn. I planned on reading CoD when i was down in NOLA this summer, but i never got around to aquire the book :/

Its pretty bad. :/ But i find the cover quite entertaining at least
Avatar Thu. 10/29/15 7:43pm Flash Strap:

It's hilarious, in fact. Reminds me of "New Sensations" and that whole 80's style of mid-career LP covers
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/29/15 7:43pm hyde:

Confederacy of Dunces is worth the read, I think. and Sadhu that cover for Television is.....something
Avatar Thu. 10/29/15 7:44pm Sadhu Sadhu:

True.

Avatar Thu. 10/29/15 7:59pm Sadhu Sadhu:

What would you guys say is the meanes sounding Dr John gets? For me, there is something about his take on How Come My Dog Don't Bark (When You Come 'Round). That last verse is pretty intense... I guess its got to to with the contrast in the lyrics and the backing track or something...

Not a fan, I take it?
Avatar Thu. 10/29/15 8:07pm Sadhu Sadhu:

Its a solid album. I just wish that black keys dude left his finger marks all ower it. :)
Avatar Thu. 10/29/15 8:09pm Flash Strap:

I agree, to a certain extent. I don't love Auerbach, and wish he toned down some stuff, but he still got together the most Night Trippin record since the original days. And Dr. John brings his most bloodsoaked street fightin' lyrics
Avatar Thu. 10/29/15 8:10pm Flash Strap:

still, it's too in the pocket, groove oriented. Gris Gris sounds like it's gonna fall apart, and that's its strength. how could he not get that? But then again, what did Dr. John want out of this particular collab? I don't know
Avatar Thu. 10/29/15 8:13pm Flash Strap:

It's better than the other Night Tripper resurrection, 1998's Anutha Zone, with Jay Spaceman and Portishead, etc.
Avatar Thu. 10/29/15 8:14pm Sadhu Sadhu:

its a bit like Anutha Zone, where he was working with Jason Pierce and Supergrass, wich also is a pretty good album, but im guessing its to reach out to new crowds.
Avatar Thu. 10/29/15 8:14pm Sadhu Sadhu:

Hahaha. I was just writing about that....
Avatar Thu. 10/29/15 8:16pm Sadhu Sadhu:

But yea, Lock Down is absolutely a good records and i woudnt want to be without it. Its just those little Auerbach things that keeps me thinking about The Black Keys wich buggs me.

Ha, I scooped ya! Yeah, I agree
  Thu. 10/29/15 8:16pm Doug Schulkind:

I am enjoying the fuck out of this show. It's like a documentary, except there's no pompous talking-head blather from Bono!

i think both Bono and Dave Grohl need to be banned from being in music documentaries
Avatar Thu. 10/29/15 8:19pm Flash Strap:

Did Bono ruin a Dr. John doc specifically? or does he just show up to poop around in every music doc ever?

according to the internets. the "spy boy" is the first in line ahead of the Big Chief in Mardi Gras Indians parades

I think a spyboy is part of a Mardi Gras Indian tribe, someone who scouts out other tribes? Something like that.

Angola, for those who don't know, is a notorious Louisiana prison. I used to think this song was about the civil war in Angola, Africa. Which would be cool too, but it's a straight-up prison nightmare song and that's important!

Avatar Thu. 10/29/15 9:25pm Doug Schulkind:

This program officially ends at 9pm (ET). But think about all these weeks when Flash Strap keeps the sonic pedal to medal AND JUST KEEPS GOING! It's like baseball. It has no clock. It's just over when it's over.

Someone step up to the plate and knock us all outta the park with a $100 pledge. Make it happen. Thrill us. Zu zu us!

Get your pledge zu zus out: www.wfmu.org...

Thanks Evan. i wish i could spare more minute nuggets but i'm tapped.
