Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/18/16 3:16pm Scott Williams:

whoah, getting some sweet blowback from the studio monitors with the kick on this Brinkmann!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/18/16 3:16pm Matt from Springfield:

Would "All the Young Dudes" be a proper transition from Bowie tributes to Mott tributes?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/18/16 3:17pm Scott Williams:

@V Priceless, I'm helpless with Mott - my context would be Ian Hunter's 80s single "All of the Good Ones Are Taken"
  Mon. 1/18/16 3:18pm P-90:

Hi Scott! Glad to hear Studio 1 is equipped with nice monitors.
  Mon. 1/18/16 3:20pm P-90:

any chance to hear some faux glam from brett smiley? he died a couple days before bowie. always remember....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/18/16 3:29pm Scott Williams:

@dale, you should check out Evan Davies' show from last week: www.wfmu.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/18/16 3:33pm dale:

well, there you go. i will. i know 'the request' is likely a dreaded word in a deejays world. if you watch him on a british talk show it's apparent that he was too young and not prepared.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/18/16 3:35pm Matt from Springfield:

MADAME GEORGE!!! :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/18/16 3:36pm Matt from Springfield:

One of the all time best albums, complete w/ orig surface noise!

Very ahead for '68 too, a deeply sympathetic song for a cross-dressing Irish drug dealer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/18/16 3:36pm steve:

is it just me or is the bassline of madame george similar to dream baby dream?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/18/16 3:38pm efd:

Thanks for the pointer, Scott! @Dale, one of the contributing factors to that talk show appearance going south was the fact that he was supposed to lip sync to "Va Va Va Voom," but they played the backing track for "Space Ace" instead forcing him to make an unexpected adjustment to a song he hadn't been planning to perform.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/18/16 3:38pm Matt from Springfield:

@steve: There's only so many notes, and further only so many basslines. Things often sound similar, sometimes deliberately :)
But as you point out, that makes for a good transition between songs w/ similar basslines or rhythm.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/18/16 3:38pm Scott Williams:

@steve, it ain't just you, friend!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/18/16 3:39pm Scott Williams:

Hi Evan!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/18/16 3:41pm efd:

Hi Scott!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/18/16 3:42pm Matt from Springfield:

The "T.B. Sheets" album has a good early attempt at "Madame George", more of a soul-chorus arrangement than this one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/18/16 3:42pm Ike:

Is this song really about a cross-dressing Irish drug dealer? Because if so, this is the second time in 24 hours I've heard a "classic" musician I hate doing cool subject matter on FMU. Dave Mandl played an (IMO) awful Deep Purple song last night -- but it was a song bashing Mary Whitehouse, who was basically the UK's 60s-70s version of Tipper Gore, but on steroids. I'm so conflicted.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/18/16 3:43pm Matt from Springfield:

We're sayin' a lot of goodbyes, goodbyes, goodbyes, goodbyes, goodbyes, goodbyes lately...

Love this song/album, made all the more interesiting when you learn about how the album was made. Good read:

i think Brett Smiley did the best version of solitaire. i exchanged messages with him when myspace existed. he was delighted i thought his version was better than elvis's

abowie, Scott, abowie
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/18/16 3:46pm Matt from Springfield:

@Ike: Yep, check the lyrics. And Mary Whitehouse was a vigorous moralist who tried to get everything censored (including "Life of Brian"!) Good for them taking the piss outta her!

But ya know, things CAN be "kinda cool", or "kinda lame", no need to feel conflicted ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/18/16 3:47pm Matt from Springfield:

I agree Scott, with Van M. it's probably about that, and also "And a whole lot more!" - just like Stevie Nicks writings. They're about something, but never *just* about that, always about "a whole lot more" in addition.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/18/16 3:49pm Grok-o-matic:

Heck yeah! Low is the super kill!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/18/16 3:53pm Matt from Springfield:

Whoa, trippy stuff! First time hearing Zoos of Berlin!
Avatar    Mon. 1/18/16 3:54pm V Priceless:

thanks for the Bowie, Scott! BTW, I'm replacing "amen" with "abowie"...pass it on...
Avatar    Mon. 1/18/16 3:54pm slugluv1313:

@ dale -- thank you for that clip of Brett Smiley! had not seen it before
@ efd -- thank you for remembering Brett, i had not known he had passed -- i still own and treasure my copy of "Va Va Va Voom" and had also corresponded w/Brett via MySpace and later, Facebook
and i agree, we are saying goodbye to WAY to many already this year
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/18/16 3:55pm Matt from Springfield:

This might be another 2012 - remember how many famous people passed away during that particular year?
