Free trip to the moon and back for anyone who recognizes the LP underneath today's cassettes.

How do, Tony and all! Let's get hissy!
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 12:03pm Cecile:

a hoy-hoy!
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 12:03pm Cecile:

is this the Hunting Lodge from Detroit?
  Tue. 12/15/15 12:04pm Dean:

On board here, but can't listen. The LP cover is unfamiliar, but it looks mildly New-Wavey, c.1980. Tapes look fascinating today.
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 12:06pm Tony Coulter:

Greetings, Listener James, Cecile, & Dean!
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 12:07pm Tony Coulter:

@ Cecile: This Hunting Lodge is from Michigan: rateyourmusic.com...
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 12:08pm Cecile:

I saw them 1-2 times. They were great.
  Tue. 12/15/15 12:08pm Dean:

Since I'm not listening today, I'll dub the show Tape Fog.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/15/15 12:08pm coelacanth:

hello Tony and others
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 12:09pm Tony Coulter:

Ahoy, coelacanth!
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 12:13pm Tony Coulter:

@ Dean, re cover: You're in the right ballpark. It is an '80s group.
  Tue. 12/15/15 12:14pm Dean:

23 Skiddoo?
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 12:14pm Tony Coulter:

@ Cecile: Ah, that's interesting that you saw Hunting Lodge! One sometimes forgets that these kinds of groups actually existed in the "real world."

Rotting Christ?
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 12:16pm Cecile:

they were good and intense. I remember them opening up for an out-of-town band in a church basement or something. They were loud, powerful, and excellent. Too bad I was too lazy to seek out more shows and recordings.
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 12:17pm Tony Coulter:

@ βrian: If you're talking about the mystery LP, you're getting close!!
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 12:18pm Cecile:

crispy ambulance?
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 12:20pm Tony Coulter:

Nope. I suspect βrian actually recognizes the LP, but is misremembering the title. (Of course, maybe it was just a lucky stab in the dark.)
  Tue. 12/15/15 12:20pm βrian:

Well, there's *something* rotten in Denmark?
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 12:21pm Tony Coulter:

Something is "Rotting," yes!
  Tue. 12/15/15 12:22pm Dean:

I was gonna guess Hunters & Collectors, but the clues dismiss them.
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 12:24pm βrian:

Doesn't look like the Dead Kennedys.
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 12:25pm Tony Coulter:

I won't torture you all anymore. It's a Velvet Monkeys comp: www.discogs.com...
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 12:28pm Cecile:

this is one of the best tapes you've played, Tony.
  Tue. 12/15/15 12:28pm Dean:

Well, that's hilarious.
  Tue. 12/15/15 12:29pm Dean:

(The LP cover identity, I mean.)
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 12:30pm Tony Coulter:

@ Cecile: Glad you like it! It comes with a nifty newspaper-format zine/arts mag.
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 12:32pm Cecile:

we kind of underrated the Detroit scene a little in Ann Arbor. They had some good stuff. But this was pre-internet. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/15/15 12:33pm JtotheK:

master mixup - this is great!
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 12:34pm Tony Coulter:

Talking of seeing these bands live, I saw Big City Orchestra just a few years ago here in Portland, plus (ages ago) I saw Viscera -- who open side B of the cassette -- in a Brooklyn bar.
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 12:36pm listener james from westwood:

That was a lotta splicin' and tapin' right there!
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 12:37pm Tony Coulter:

Almost a bit Steinski-esque!
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 12:41pm Tony Coulter:

The voice here sounds a bit like Irwin Chusid, no? (It's not him, of course.)
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 12:46pm Tony Coulter:

Fredrik Nilsen (on now) is a core L.A.F.M.S. member and is in the Doo-Dooettes, Airway, Extended Organ, and a bunch of other projects. www.discogs.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/15/15 12:48pm Carmichael:

OK, finally made it to the big shoe. This sounds interesting. Like something Bryce would play.
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 12:48pm Tony Coulter:

Greetings, Carmichael!
  Tue. 12/15/15 12:50pm Dean:

I think I might have seen BPeople live, probably at Al's Bar, or maybe I just remember hearing about them playing there. Nilsen was in that band.
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 12:51pm Tony Coulter:

He was!
  Tue. 12/15/15 12:59pm MrFab:

if Nilsen is in Airway, I just saw them last year.

Just got in 5 mins ago. Wish I could have heard this tape from the beginning, Woe is me! (Woe is a me-bop!)
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 1:00pm Tony Coulter:

Om-drop-a-re-bop-om! Greets, MrFab!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/15/15 1:03pm coelacanth:

i like that side a and side b are 2 very different experiences, the first of which leads very well into the second.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/15/15 1:05pm coelacanth:

...but each would be fine without the other.
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 1:06pm Tony Coulter:

Know what you mean!
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 1:10pm βrian:

Golly, I hope I didn't miss much. I had to beat the food-cart rush.
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 1:10pm V Priceless:

kinda Forbidden Planety
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 1:11pm Tony Coulter:

Forgot to mention: There are no track titles on this Steve Gore tape.
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 1:13pm Tony Coulter:

@ βrian: Here in Southeast Portland we have door-to-door tamale sellers. There's no need to ever go outside.
  Tue. 12/15/15 1:15pm Dean:

Funny, I'm now enjoying audio and text here, having just returned home and heated up a couple tamales I made with my m-i-l two days ago.
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 1:16pm Tony Coulter:

Some of the tracks on this tape were issued digitally over the last few years, on bandcamp: rascalreporters.bandcamp.com
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 1:17pm βrian:

Well, *we* have home delivery of whole-grain naturally leavened brick-oven-baked bread, so fooey.
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 1:18pm βrian:

Wha? Wisconsin?
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 1:19pm the Canterbury wood-elf:

@Tony Is much of the Rascal Reporters cassette stash you were sent in the 'Canterbury' vein (as was the track you played a few weeks ago, the only thing I've heard from them)?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/15/15 1:19pm Carmichael:

Found an unofficial bio of the late Mr. Gore: www.progarchives.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/15/15 1:20pm coelacanth:

and this guy's voice reminds me of Nick the Bard.
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 1:21pm Tony Coulter:

Hiya, Woodelf! A fair amount of the tapes I got are in a Canterbury vein -- but they are really all over the place, even on a single tape.

Enjoyed your latest Canterbury show very much, by the way!
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 1:22pm βrian:

… oh, and dark chocolate truffles.
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 1:23pm the Canterbury wood-elf:

Thanks! The next episode will be out on Christmas day (just cos that's when the full moon happens to occur).
  Tue. 12/15/15 1:30pm Dean:

That sarangi--or is it a reed instrument?--is from Harrison's Wonderwall Music.
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 1:31pm Tony Coulter:

Indeed it is! That's my favorite Beatles-related album. And now here's Yoko....
  Tue. 12/15/15 1:31pm Dean:

The fourteenth Beatle right there.
  Tue. 12/15/15 1:33pm Dean:

My favorite Beatles-related albums are their bootlegs.
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 1:33pm βrian:

Prelude to South Park?
  Tue. 12/15/15 1:33pm MrFab:

This is like South Park's Cartman vs Negativland's Weatherman
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 1:33pm Tony Coulter:

Was just thinking the same thing!
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 1:35pm Tony Coulter:

...as what βrian said, I mean. MrFab got ahead of me....
  Tue. 12/15/15 1:37pm Dean:

Nope. They hear sounds through their floppy ears, just like us.
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 1:46pm Tony Coulter:

Speak for yourself -- my ears aren't floppy.
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 1:46pm βrian:

Oh my, this is jostling my tuner and causing station drift.
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 1:47pm Webhamster Henry:

These guys are outdoing themselves! Thanks Tony!
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 1:47pm Tony Coulter:

Hiya, Webhamster Henry!
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 1:50pm βrian:

Well, a little silicone shim fixed that.
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 1:50pm Tony Coulter:

One big problem Rascal Reporters had was that people expected/wanted them to be a prog band, just because they sometimes were. As you can hear from this tape, there was a lot more to them than a single style of music.
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 1:53pm Tony Coulter:

tho, again, this is mostly Gore stuff....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/15/15 1:54pm coelacanth:

i must depart now.
Most Excellent Tony- Thanks!
ciao.
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 1:54pm Tony Coulter:

Great, an empty seat!
Hi Tony

Jumped the gun there, track ID wise.
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 2:26pm Tony Coulter:

Heya, Stanley! Watch out -- I think someone spilled a coke under that seat.
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 2:28pm northguineahills:

Cool, I made it for the last half hour!
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 2:29pm Tony Coulter:

Hey ho, NGH! You made it in time for the special surprise bonus recording following this (short) tape.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/15/15 2:31pm Stanley:

A coke? Phew, I thought it was something else.
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 2:38pm Webhamster Henry:

There's something oddly comforting about this music. It reminds me of Clay Pigeon of course.
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 2:40pm Rich in Washington:

this RAWKS!
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 2:40pm Webhamster Henry:

Yeah! Let's listen for the word : Borborygmus!
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 2:41pm Tony Coulter:

Perhaps the word should be "peristaltic" not "renistaltic"? I just write what I see....
  Tue. 12/15/15 2:41pm MrFab:

I like Renistaltic Sounds In Gastrointestinal Obstruction's early stuff. Buncha sell-outs.
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 2:41pm Rich in Washington:

I mean, it's no 'Excision of a Vulvar Cyst' but it still rocks plenty.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/15/15 2:41pm JtotheK:

how'd they get the mic in there?
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 2:41pm βrian:

Where's your bolus right now?
  Tue. 12/15/15 2:41pm MrFab:

all Renistaltic Sounds In Gastrointestinal Obstruction's fans now are poseurs.

I suddenly have a need to release some flatus.

OMG! This is so great, Tony!
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 2:42pm βrian:

Everybody get your windbreakers on.
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 2:43pm Rich in Washington:

This is a moving performance.
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 2:43pm Webhamster Henry:

Play this again on some show you are archiving please!
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 2:43pm Webhamster Henry:

I want to mash it up with the Ford Manure Spreader infomercial.
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 2:44pm northguineahills:

Why do I think I've heard this in the last decade?
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 2:44pm βrian:

I think we need Marlin Perkins here.
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 2:44pm Tony Coulter:

JtotheK: Good question! Hope they cleaned the mics carefully afterward!
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 2:44pm Rich in Washington:

My Discogs wantlist gets ever stranger every day, much of it due to Tony's shows.

@ NGH: I have played this before, tho it's been years. Plus, I made a copy for the station -- a few people have aired parts of it.
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 2:46pm Tony Coulter:

Like Brian, and Scott....
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 2:46pm βrian:

I'm airing some right now ...

These are like x-rays of farts.

I saw an xray of a girl passing gas
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/15/15 2:49pm Stanley:

Its certainly educational, if nothing else.
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 2:49pm βrian:

@Rich: Did you buy that from vending machine?
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 2:50pm Rich in Washington:

These could also be elk calls.

More like a venting machine.

Thanks, Tony! Sadly missed most of it, but that's the magic & loss of live radio, innit?
Avatar Tue. 12/15/15 3:01pm Rich in Washington:

That gastro-record was more disturbtaining than the Potty Pals record Irwin played recently.
