Nate K.'s avatar View Nate K.'s profile Options

Sunday morning coming up. Music for the revolution in my head: choogling punks; power pop, both skinny-tied and long-haired; soul shouters and girl groups; bubblegum and acid rock; global fuzz; weirdos and outsiders, and the Weirdos and the Outsiders; Archie Shepp and J. Geils. Plus, live bands.

Hey Fred, I do not recall where, precisely, you live, but if you're tuned in, drop me a line so I know you're OK.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 11/15/15 6:11am Nate K:

Morning, Mauri!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 11/15/15 6:14am fred:

Good morning Nate and pyromaniacs
I live in the Paris suburbs. I was at a show that night, but one too small to be a target. I guess being a WFMU listener is good for safety: obscure music means small audiences
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 11/15/15 6:16am Nate K:

Hi Fred, so glad to hear it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 11/15/15 6:27am pacific standard simon:

Glad that you're OK, fred. Eagles Of Death Metal has been a WFMU band, however. Three Chord Monte, maybe?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 11/15/15 6:34am Nate K:

I read that EODM they lost their merch guy in the tragedy. So sad
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 11/15/15 6:35am fred:

Sure, Simon, but for the price of a ticket to such a show I can go to about 5 more interesting ones, with less expensive (yet better) beer
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 11/15/15 6:40am fred:

@Nate: Sadly, that looks likely. I haven't been there in years, but the merch tables were right next to where the attackers are said to have come in
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 11/15/15 6:42am pacific standard simon:

First Charlie Hebdo, now this. WTF in France?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 11/15/15 6:49am pacific standard simon:

Boy I love this Ducks Deluxe track.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 11/15/15 6:51am pacific standard simon:

OK, you just made me look up Sean Tyla to make sure this wasn't a goddam death dedication.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 11/15/15 6:53am Nate K:

No death dedication, Simon. I recently scored the single, so I figured I spin it.
  Sun. 11/15/15 6:54am Jonathan Herweg:

Did you miss me and my ghost transition?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 11/15/15 6:54am fred:

@Simon: The most obvious is a sizable minority whose parents or grand-parents came from North Africa, and who face constant, blatant discrimination. They're also totally cut off from what whites call "their" countries. Add a Saudi-funded salafist recruitment effort that is winked at by the government, in order to sell weapons to Saudi Arabia. And that's only what I know first-hand
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 11/15/15 6:58am mauri:

lovin this blair alise and the bombshells!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 11/15/15 6:59am pacific standard simon:

@fred - "Whites"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 11/15/15 7:01am pacific standard simon:

@Nate K - The Wikipedia entry for Tyla was pretty interesting, anyway.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 11/15/15 7:04am fred:

@Simon: Recently, a French politician went out and claimed France belonged to the "white race". This is how toxic it is here, and it's not going to get better
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 11/15/15 7:07am Nate K:

@Fred, that sounds too nuanced and complicated, I was told it was because "they hate our freedom," that's gotta be it (note: sarcasm).
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 11/15/15 7:08am Nate K:

Hey Mauri, yup, she's a superstar. Plays all the instruments on the single, too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 11/15/15 7:10am pacific standard simon:

@fred - Whenever I think it's getting intolerably crazy in the US, it's nice to learn that the rest of the world is trying to keep up with us.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 11/15/15 7:12am pacific standard simon:

And then there was the response to the British Invasion, The Gyrls.
Avatar Sun. 11/15/15 7:26am DonJuanTijuana:

Morning Nate & gang. just wanna say Muchos Gracias for all the kind words & dedication last week..it really made my whole week.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 11/15/15 7:28am Nate K:

Hey @DonJuan, I'm glad it helped.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 11/15/15 7:35am fred:

This set takes me back to my high-school years
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 11/15/15 7:36am Nate K:

Ha! Nice, @Fred. I think the Volt jam is the only non-KBD-era track.
  Sun. 11/15/15 7:41am Will:

Nate, of all the fine freeform DJs on the air, you are the freeformingest! Fondly, Will J
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 11/15/15 7:44am Nate K:

Thanks, Will. I always hope it all hangs together.
Avatar Sun. 11/15/15 7:47am Howard F:

Good Morning! Hey Nate, who else did this song? "A Certain Girl" I'm really digging it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 11/15/15 7:49am Nate K:

Hi @Howard, the original is by Ernie K-Doe. I know that Billy Childish covered it, and maybe the Downliner's Sect. Mary Weiss of the Shangri-Las covered it for her solo album, as a b-side to the single.
Avatar Sun. 11/15/15 7:50am David Shortell:

--and the Yardbirds and Warren Zevon.
Avatar Sun. 11/15/15 7:51am Howard F:

Oh...okay! Warren Zevon! Thanks @David Shortell. Thanks @Nate!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 11/15/15 7:52am Nate K:

Yes, Warren Zevon, forgot about that.
Avatar Sun. 11/15/15 7:53am Howard F:

Did Allen Toussaint write that song?
Avatar Sun. 11/15/15 7:58am David Shortell:

I was listening to an "American Routes" repeat on NPR this morning that featured Allen Toussaint. I never knew he composed the "Dating Game" theme song!
Avatar Sun. 11/15/15 8:01am Howard F:

@David, didn't realize that. What a loss, gonna have to check that out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 11/15/15 8:07am Nate K:

David, I never knew that either. Skills to pay the bills.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 11/15/15 8:08am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Good Morning~Tzag! Glad to check in w/ you Fred. Pierre is okay too.
Somehow, I never quite got schooled on Allen Toussaint's accomplishments. So many songs by so many I take for granted were his. There's a few writers like that - an exclusive category.
NateK on FMU brings the Live again! This is pure roots fun.
Avatar Sun. 11/15/15 8:10am DonJuanTijuana:

Hats off to you Nate! Anyone who can lasso such a great kick a$$ band to do an early AM set on a Sunday deserves mega kudos!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 11/15/15 8:12am Nate K:

@Howard, he definitely wrote "A Certain Girl."
@Revo, thanks so much for the update on Pierre!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 11/15/15 8:15am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

No problem. Facebook is good @ some things.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 11/15/15 8:16am fred:

We also lost Johnny "Hurricane" Jones this week
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 11/15/15 8:17am fred:

Thanks to the band and Glenn, that was a great set
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 11/15/15 8:18am Nate K:

And "Filthy Animal" Taylor of Motorhead.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 11/15/15 8:22am Nate K:

"Prize-fighter body and Jackie Wilson looks..."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 11/15/15 8:35am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...sometimes think R'n'R was born in N'Orleans not Memphis...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 11/15/15 8:38am fred:

R'n'R might have been born in Memphis, but it first got drunk in NOLA, and the rest is history
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 11/15/15 8:42am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

HaHa! It's not about a single place in the South of course, but N'Orleans is kind of the entry point for African influence via the Caribbean - w/ French & Spanish in the mix...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 11/15/15 8:46am doncaballero:

Nate, sorry if I missed this: are you going to post the GLLAHTB set on the FMA?
  Sun. 11/15/15 8:50am SeanG:

It's weird--I love hearing all these alternate takes but sometimes it ruins the original for me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 11/15/15 8:51am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...only if they're better!...Does FMU have the new 18-disc box?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 11/15/15 8:52am Nate K:

Hey @Don the whole show will be archived on my page and the Lightnin' Lee set will be there and on the FMA.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 11/15/15 8:53am doncaballero:

Cool! Thanks Nate.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 11/15/15 8:56am fred:

Thanks Nate, hear you next week
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 11/15/15 8:56am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Appreciate it NateK.
  Sun. 11/15/15 8:57am doof:

great show nate

Nicely done,Nate K! Thanks for making it a good morning.
