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.

Hi all. Chiming in a bit late here, but been streeming from my phone on the way home. Great show so far. Some burning jazz there earlier on!

I hate to tell ya, Sadhu, but here at the Explorers Room we haven't even started yet! I think you're just hearing that sublime stream!

Is there a playlist for this anywhere tho? Cause there was at least 3 tracks that i would love to track down....

i hate to be part of the oversaturation campaign, but man I love Cowley's ambient porn work, and while I don't like Muscle Up as much as School Daze, this track has really been doin it for me

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 11/5/15 7:12pm melinda:

I think heavy saturation is good. I've seen Patrick Cowley's name a lot but I'm not familiar with his music, so hearing it a few times is a good introduction.

Never realized Cowley produced Sylvester, which would have fit, more or less, Jeff Golick's disco-themed show.
Avatar Thu. 11/5/15 7:15pm Flash Strap:

His production of Sylvester's I Need Somebody to Love Tonight is narcotic

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 11/5/15 7:32pm Little Danny:

Tuning in late this week - hi Flash! That Cowley comp popped up on my radar just today thanks to FMU's twitter feed. Also the Sylvester track "I Need..." is an all time fave. So kraut-loft.
Avatar Thu. 11/5/15 7:32pm Flash Strap:

Holy shit! Just that much? WE CAN MAKE IT!

Also, thank you Doug for turning me onto this record when you played "Arcane Message" the other day
Avatar Thu. 11/5/15 7:34pm Sadhu Sadhu:

@Dough: Just the man i was looking for! I was told you might know what was playing before the show. Im thinking about to burnig jazz tracks that was played from about 5 past 6 and one string harp tune that was not long after. Info would be deeply apriciated!
Avatar Thu. 11/5/15 7:34pm Flash Strap:

Hi Danny! yeah that track is nuts. But i haven't heard much of Sylvester's other stuff unfortunately

At 6:05 ET, the stream played "Mazinka" by Steven Bernstein. That was followed by "Woman Coming" by James Blood Ulmer. Not sure about a string harp number. I don't see anything that appears to be of that description around that time.

There was something, then the two jazz tracks thet totaly blew my mind, and then when i arrived home, must be around 6:25 there was an instrumental piece that was strings at least. maybe not harp. I'll look up the two you found thou and see if those were the ones i was thinking of. Again, thank you!

Great Eno. I was distracted by kitchen tasks and for some reason thought we were listening to a Patrick Cowley porn soundtrack. Silly me, that's what happens when I wander away from the playlist.

I've been thinking about that too, Sadhu. I would like to, but so much of that sort of time goes into prepping a new show each week. But this is just the first year I've done this, I'm learning to make more time, and I have some cool mix ideas coming up
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 11/5/15 8:53pm hyde:

the mixes *are* great. last Thanksgiving I hit my family with hours of Bibliothèque Exotique when they all came over for dinner. I may make them listen to the Umilianis this time.
Avatar Thu. 11/5/15 8:54pm Flash Strap:

wow wonderful! wonderful!

I think the next one will be Plant Musics, which I've already done a show on, but I thought it would be a good mix too
Avatar Thu. 11/5/15 8:55pm Sadhu Sadhu:

Yea, i can imagine that most of that time goes for prepearing shows and leaves less time to make mixes on top of that, so a mix again would be a super bonus. But now i at least know that you are still thinking of doing some again!
Avatar Thu. 11/5/15 8:56pm Flash Strap:

this stuff is from a really amazing Partch "Dance Satire" :

We are all bewitched, and mostly by accident: the accident
of form, color, and sex; of prejudices conditioned from the
cradle on up, of the particular ruts we have found ourselves
in or have dug for ourselves because of our individual needs.
Those in a long-tenanted rut enjoy larger comforts of mind an
d body, and as compensation it is given to others who are
not so easily domesticated to become
mediums for the transmission of perception, more frequently. Among these are the
lost musicians. The present-day musician grows up in a half
-world between “good” music and “not-so-good” music. Even
when he has definitely made his choice between the two, he
is still affected by the other, and to that extent he is
dichotomous and disoriented. His head is bathed in an ancien
t light through a Gothic window while his other end swings
like a miniature suspension bridge in a cool right-angle
gale. The perception of displaced musicians may germinate,
evolve, and mature in concert, through a de
veloping at-one-ness, through their beat.

Great show Flash!

Thanks Evan. i may take you up on that; but i must double-check my collection first.
Avatar Thu. 11/5/15 9:24pm Flash Strap:

The necessary LPs: Swordfishtrombones, Rain Dogs, Frank's Wild Years, Bone Machine, Black Rider (the Island years, basically). Then you just GOTTA have Nighthawks at the Diner. After that, it;s all up to your tastes

Thanks Melinda!

Closing Time is another excellent Waits album, all the more interesting if you start with the later stuff.
