@ Fiendish McTavish: Sadly, today's secret theme is not edible. You will have to make your own lunch.

Hey, Dean!
  Tue. 1/26/16 12:14pm Fiendish McTavish:

I give up then. All I can say is that everything you are playing is thoroughly delectable. I am lovin' it. It's my audible protein!

Thanks, Fiendish. Man cannot live by bologna alone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/26/16 12:18pm Tony Coulter:

Well, I'll let the secret theme out of the secret-theme bag -- mostly because it's not much of a theme. Decided to play more than the usual number of longish (circa 20-minute) pieces today -- that is all.
  Tue. 1/26/16 12:18pm Gerardo from Brussels:

Hola senor Coulter ! Long time I couldnt hear a show of yours live online! everything fine with you ?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/26/16 12:20pm Tony Coulter:

Gerardo!! Great to hear from you! All is well in Portland -- hope the same is true in Brussels!
  Tue. 1/26/16 12:20pm Dean:

Cool! That means either "Stairway to Heaven" two or three times in a row, or any one of the sides of "Tales from Topographic Oceans"!
  Tue. 1/26/16 12:21pm Gerardo from Brussels:

everything fine overhere !
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/26/16 12:22pm Tony Coulter:

Someone must have released a song or album called "Stairway to Hell," no?
Avatar Tue. 1/26/16 12:23pm Kay:

Prog on, Garth!
  Tue. 1/26/16 12:23pm Dean:

A band out of Flint, Michigan. Lead something or other.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/26/16 12:23pm Tony Coulter:

Greets, Kay!!
  Tue. 1/26/16 12:27pm Dean:

There's a band called Elevator to Hell: http://www.discogs.com/artist/414532-Elevator-To-Hell
  Tue. 1/26/16 12:29pm Dean:

And a song by Nirvana, "Escalator to Hell." So much for the topos of pedestrian after-world transport.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/26/16 12:31pm Tony Coulter:

All those songwriters seem to be in a rush to get to hell. I'd take the stairs.

Jeez -- to think I once used to be able to pronounce French fairly well. My poor tongue is getting pretty lead-footed. Apologies to all francophones....

Really dug that Luc Henrion. Good to see Roger Doyle is still at it. I'll be in an out the next few hours. Lovely day!

Heya, NGH!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/26/16 12:46pm Tony Coulter:

Yes, it is indeed good to see that Roger Doyle is still at it -- and this is not an archival release, but recent recordings.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/26/16 12:48pm Tony Coulter:

Some of you may know Roger Doyle for his project Operating Theatre.....

Hiya Tony and lengthy-piece listeners. Anything from Agitation Free is about 20 minutes long.

Lord, yes, Carmichael! Agitation Free and/or Yatha Sidhra's "Meditation Mass," perhaps?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/26/16 12:57pm Tony Coulter:

I may play Yatha Free's "Agitation Meditation."
Avatar Tue. 1/26/16 12:57pm the Canterbury wood-elf:

Hey Tony. Not that surprisingly, you've chosen to play my favourite Bowie piece. And is that Canterbury-style organ playing I now hear??

Oh hey, Egg. Nice.

Egg is a flightless bird product.
  Tue. 1/26/16 1:09pm Dean:

I'm reminded of the joke about French chefs and omelets.
Avatar Tue. 1/26/16 1:12pm the Canterbury wood-elf:

@Tony This makes me wonder, have you ever done a "Rock In Opposition" show? If not, would you consider one? That's a genre I have yet to properly explore.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/26/16 1:13pm Tony Coulter:

From what I understand, when the band Egg broke up, the former members joined the Byrds.
  Tue. 1/26/16 1:13pm Dean:

Surely you're yolking!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/26/16 1:14pm Tony Coulter:

@ the Canterbury wood-elf: Have never done a RIO show, no -- probably should. I've been marinated in that stuff for sure.
Avatar    Tue. 1/26/16 1:17pm βrian:

I would've assumed they would get together as an omelette.
Avatar Tue. 1/26/16 1:17pm the Canterbury wood-elf:

Here we have some young Canterbury musicians recently paying tribute to Egg with a live version of their track "Scrambled Egg":

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/26/16 1:20pm Tony Coulter:

Talking of new Canterbury stuff, there's the super-Canterbury-style Italian band Homunculus Res: www.youtube.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/26/16 1:20pm Tony Coulter:

Will sample the Scrambled Eggs later -- thanks, elf!

Magma -- now in their 47th year!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/26/16 1:29pm Tony Coulter:

... and returning to Portland in March.....
  Tue. 1/26/16 1:30pm Dean:

Touring this year, and SF is one of their destinations. I'm hoping to see them, but I'll have to brush up on my Kobaïan.
  Tue. 1/26/16 1:31pm Dean:

Hmmm...maybe I'll venture to PDX to hear them, instead. My son would love to visit Portland again.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/26/16 1:31pm Tony Coulter:

When I saw them last year, some of the vocals were in French, so you might just be able to get by.
  Tue. 1/26/16 1:34pm Dean:

Maybe they'll tell omelet jokes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/26/16 1:35pm Tony Coulter:

See -- there's some French!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/26/16 1:36pm Rich in Washington:

I see The Residents are coming to town (PDX) again in April.

Speaking of French, and therefore the bane of the AZERTY keyboard:

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/26/16 1:38pm Tony Coulter:

Hey Rich! That doesn't grab me as much, sad to say. I really love the Residents up to the mid-80s, but not so much following that. I might go anyhow, for the visual spectacle...
  Tue. 1/26/16 1:41pm Dean:

Funny, I was thinking a side of "Eskimo" might make the cut today.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/26/16 1:43pm Rich in Washington:

The main draw for me is that it's currently the only way to see the Theory of Obscurity movie, which is currently in roadshow mode.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/26/16 1:44pm Tony Coulter:

I did manage to see that movie in a theatre here -- it's pretty interesting and has some great footage.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/26/16 1:45pm Rich in Washington:

I saw them last time they came to town and wasn't particularly moved. I don't get what they/he are doing these days. I think their best material was before they schizm'd off into what is obviously now a pair.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/26/16 1:50pm Tony Coulter:

Yeah, I kind of think they've long become a dumb and lazy parody of themselves. (Sorry, eyeballed ones.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/26/16 1:52pm Rich in Washington:

They were so ahead of their times in so many ways. I do hope the movie conveys that. Completely life-changing for me, ordering their records via mailorder without ever hearing a note of their music. Totally ruined me for 'normal' music forever.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/26/16 1:53pm Tony Coulter:

The movie is sort of mediocre, to be honest -- but it can't help being a winner because there's a good deal of great early footage.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/26/16 1:55pm Rich in Washington:

Everyone's a documentary filmmaker nowadays, which means very few documentaries are any good, especially ones which are entirely dependent on the cooperation of the subject.
Avatar    Tue. 1/26/16 1:56pm Doug Schulkind:

Greetings, Señor Coulter!
  Tue. 1/26/16 1:56pm Dean:

I remember first reading about The Residents in either Trouser Press or Back Door Man, back in the mid-'70s, a review of one of their LPs "Fingerprince" was the first LP of theirs I purchased, on the basis of that review, at the parking lot swap meet at the Capitol Records building in Hollywood.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/26/16 1:56pm Tony Coulter:

Greetings, Sir Doug!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/26/16 1:59pm Rich in Washington:

I remember reading about them in lots of magazines but it was finally a rather cryptic ad in Rolling Stone magazine - of all places - that finally piqued my interest to the point of mailing off for one of their catalogs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/26/16 2:02pm Tony Coulter:

"Fingerprince" is one of my favorite Residents album -- sort of their take on Harry Partch (the "Six Things to a Cycle" side, anyhow).

rock on violins!
  Tue. 1/26/16 2:08pm βrian:

Made any road trips out to Malheur, Tony?

whats your favourite rock albums with violins?
- Mine are - Its a beautiful day and MaAhavishnu Orchestra.

Blaine Reininger (of Tuxedomoon) was the guest violinist on that XPosed 4Heads track.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/26/16 2:13pm Tony Coulter:

@ βrian: Haven't made it out to Malheur yet, no -- guess I'm afraid they might shoot me for being a vegan.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/26/16 2:14pm Tony Coulter:

@ VANDALISM GENERATOR: Have to think about that violin rock question -- but your two picks would probably be on my list.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/26/16 2:16pm Tony Coulter:

I will say that Malheur is a weirdly appropriate name, though....
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/26/16 2:20pm Tony Coulter:

Brunhild Ferrari was Luc Ferrari's wife. Or I guess she still is -- he just isn't Luc Ferrari any more, sadly.
Avatar Tue. 1/26/16 2:24pm VANDALISM GENERATOR:

can't think of any bands from the punk era and beyond that had violins - but there must be a few?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 1/26/16 2:26pm Tony Coulter:

There's Nash the Slash ... and Tuxedomoon....

I will never forgot where I was and what I was doing all of the times that I had heard that Abe Vigoda was dead.
