The Sharp Things live on WFMU

Live performance by The Sharp Things (L to R - Dylan Fusillo: drums; James Pertusi: bass; Michelle Caputo: guitar, vocals; Perry Serpa: vocals, keyboards; Jim Santo: guitar, vocals)
Reminiscent of the best 1970's era bands, The Sharp Things play pleasant chamber-pop floating on a cloud of tight harmonies and horn-filled orchestrations. Their new album "EverybodyEverybody" the fourth in a conceptual opus, part of a series of albums called The Dogs Of Bushwick, in tribute to The Kennel, a now defunct studio. Bandleader Perry Serpa describes it as "...a straight stream of music and sound from top to (almost) bottom." The Sharp Things played live on Irene's show.

Got it all cranked up live and loud. Really do enjoy this PH track.
Avatar Tue. 2/2/16 9:21pm still b/p:

I like the pic. Someone there on W 82nd decided to lively up the stoop, and on a smaller architectural scale sorta answered what the lightmeisters did with projection on Westminster Abbey in London recently. There ought to be a happy pairing of daytime chalk festival and nighttime light festival somewhere.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/2/16 9:26pm melinda:

Nice to hear John Cale.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/2/16 9:31pm Tome:

everything perfect almost . Irene.

He's singing the french horn line from God Only Knows, right?
Avatar Tue. 2/2/16 9:58pm Michael Shelley:

Feel Flows = best record ever?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/2/16 10:07pm Mike East:

Its a beautiful melody. Sounds great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/2/16 10:09pm Mike East:

(I didn't mean any plagiarism involved, for the record. just something I heard...and enjoyed)
Avatar Tue. 2/2/16 10:09pm Van in DC:


Hi Irene and everyone.
  Tue. 2/2/16 10:11pm Listener Robert:

Reminds me of ~3 yrs. ago when a duet played a composition of theirs at a pagan retreat I attended, and I mentioned afterward how much it sounded like the theme from "World War 1", the CBS TV series from 50 yrs. ago. They said they never heard it. Afterward a friend of mine who was there asked, "Did you just call out the musicians? Because that would be a very heathen thing to do."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/2/16 10:13pm Mike East:

We're all drawing from the same pool.
Avatar Tue. 2/2/16 10:17pm herb.nyc:

Nice live set - let's have the Sharp Things play halftime at the super bowl. Or would the audience be offended by *real* music?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/2/16 10:18pm Mike East:

I don't think it would offend them so much as bewilder them, herb.

What a great organ sound on Brinsley Schwarz...
  Tue. 2/2/16 10:35pm herb.nyc:

Brinsley Schwarz bewilders NFL.
  Tue. 2/2/16 10:42pm Santos L Halper:

Great set Irene. Nice to hear the Giant
  Tue. 2/2/16 10:43pm Listener Robert:

FYI, here's the piece (by Morton Gould) I was comparing that duet's piece to: www.youtube.com...

I don't know if that duet ever recorded, but to find their piece for comparison I'd have to recall their name.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/2/16 10:43pm Irene Trudel:

Thanks Herb! Typos live large in my life. Hi Everybody! I've been busy with mixing the band, so no time to write back in teh comments. But I've been lurking.
Avatar Tue. 2/2/16 10:49pm JakeGould:

To be honest, the “Schwarz” versus “Schwartz” thing can be debated for hours. But hey! Respect the spelling of whoever wants it spelled that way.
  Tue. 2/2/16 10:49pm Listener Robert:

The funny thing is that the Morton Gould "World War 1" sounds, deliberately I'm sure, like a dirge, while the duet's piece was light & lively. Show what you can do by changing tempo & some notes. Actually I don't mean to exaggerate the similarity, just the 1st bar and a half identical, then only slight similarity. But I still suspect maybe that old TV show stuck in the head of the folk-style composer if s/he was old enough.
  Tue. 2/2/16 10:49pm KP:

Good evening, Irene.
  Tue. 2/2/16 10:54pm ?:

This is nice listening...
  Tue. 2/2/16 10:54pm Listener Robert:

Meanwhile, the ACTUAL 1st world war was the 7 Years' War.

Why do I keep thinking about stuff that makes me cry? Not as often as when I was withdrawing from tramadol, though. THAT was a trip!
  Tue. 2/2/16 10:57pm Listener Robert:

Darn, now I'm thinking about GLEN Gould! But not crying.
  Tue. 2/2/16 11:01pm moontana:

You say "the old Fleetwood Mac" as in "Bare Trees" and I'm thinking that is the beginning of the decline, compared to "Then Play On" and "Kiln House" oh but, that said, it's a good show.
Avatar Tue. 2/2/16 11:02pm JakeGould:

Don’t cry for me Argentina.
  Tue. 2/2/16 11:10pm KP:

I like Greg Lake's voice, in moderation of course.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/2/16 11:15pm Irene Trudel:

Same here, KP. I was once obsessed with ELP, but that thankfully has passed.
Avatar Tue. 2/2/16 11:21pm still b/p:

Among my main ELP recollections, cued inevitably and automatically if thinking about the band for even a few seconds, is listening to Tarkus and Pictures At An Exhibition cassettes on a portable player, probably with the mono earphone, on dad's boat, early 70s.
Avatar Tue. 2/2/16 11:25pm coelacanth:

hello Irene and all
Avatar Tue. 2/2/16 11:26pm coelacanth:

hmm. that whole album sound a good bit like c.o.t.c.k.!
Avatar Tue. 2/2/16 11:29pm coelacanth:

i wish i'd heard that Mary Hopkin. i think i've never heard anything besides "those were the days" and the flip of that 7".
  Tue. 2/2/16 11:31pm KP:

Irene, hah. I must say you pick the best King Crimson. You unearth the gems.
Avatar Tue. 2/2/16 11:37pm coelacanth:

yeah,i would like to have heard that KC too. mine's in storage and it's been a few years. -same goes for bare trees & the power and the glory! Damn i should've been here!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/2/16 11:43pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Greetings, Irene and cast of dozens! Abida Parveen sounding pretty good!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/2/16 11:43pm Irene Trudel:

coelacanth, Mary has I think three albums and they're all wonderful.

In an alternative universe Skip Spence could have been Neil Young.
  Tue. 2/2/16 11:49pm KP:

So nice
Avatar Tue. 2/2/16 11:51pm coelacanth:

ha! i said "sweet" to this song but yes i must check out some of Hopkin's material. it's kind of weird that i never have, considering how huge that single was in my household as a child.
Avatar Tue. 2/2/16 11:55pm coelacanth:

moontana, you must mean Jorma?
  Tue. 2/2/16 11:55pm Santos L Halper:

Go ride the music, Paul
Avatar Tue. 2/2/16 11:55pm coelacanth:

oh never mind! i thought you were referring to the git in wooden ships!
Avatar Tue. 2/2/16 11:59pm coelacanth:

Thanks Irene.
