Voice Farm, perhaps?

that's not a good look, boys. *shudders*.
Avatar Wed. 2/10/16 7:07pm Gary:

Howdy Dean & Glenn! ... that's Pedro Almodovar in the tights there
Avatar Wed. 2/10/16 7:08pm Gary:

Pretty sure the photo was shot somewhere in Spain, but I couldn't say where
Avatar Wed. 2/10/16 7:09pm Tusalava:

@Polyus - it sounds like you've got LOTS of reasons to move.

Just above Almodovar's left big toe: Ángeles Caídos, which appears to be a name of a Spanish metal band, but has also been the title of other metal bands from outside Spain.
Avatar Wed. 2/10/16 7:32pm Gary:

Dang, Dean, how are you even able to see that!?
  Wed. 2/10/16 7:32pm Dean:

Correction: "has also been the title of albums by other metal bands..."
  Wed. 2/10/16 7:33pm Dean:

Good question. My vision ain't very good in the first place.
  Wed. 2/10/16 7:40pm Dean:

Directly above Almodovar's big toe, right of Ángeles Caídos, what I thought was a four-letter-word beginning with F followed by YOU --hmmm?--is actually I LOVE YOU | TE AMO.

Avatar Wed. 2/10/16 8:11pm Gary:

Am I wrong and they're good? I seriously always thought they were the band responsible for that horrid Body Is a Wonderland song, but I looked it up the other day and see that some other spawn of Satan was responsible for it
Avatar    Wed. 2/10/16 8:12pm hyde:

haha no, hootie and the blowfish are *not* good
  Wed. 2/10/16 8:14pm Dean:

I always mix up H&tB with that Dave guy, but not because I'd recognize anything either of them performs.
Avatar Wed. 2/10/16 8:14pm Gary:

Okay, that's a relief, b/c I can't exactly play their YouTube videos at the moment to see, or you'd hear them over Mr. Diab
  Wed. 2/10/16 8:16pm Dean:

Matthews. Dave Matthews. And Blues Traveler. I have no idea how any of these bands sound, except that they play some species of rock.
Avatar Wed. 2/10/16 8:17pm Gary:

Wait, Dave Matthews -- *not* the Rockpile guy?
  Wed. 2/10/16 8:17pm Dean:

And what do you know? That "Body Is a Wonderland" tune is by a fourth musically non-descript singer/songwriter, John Mayer!

Lord, no, Gary. That's Dave Edmunds. Go wash your comment board out with soap!
Avatar Wed. 2/10/16 8:17pm Gary:

I saw Rockpile in the 70s? 80s? And they were pretty great. Which Dave is Mr. Rockpile?
Avatar Wed. 2/10/16 8:19pm Gary:

Or maybe it was "Nick Lowe, with Rockpile" ... "Nick Lowe, with Dave *Edmunds*"?
Avatar Wed. 2/10/16 8:21pm Gary:

LOL, sorry Dean. I knew Dave Edmunds hadn't written that horrible song. And, YES, John Mayer. Who I must be confusing with someone good, is there another John Mayal or or something like that? Who's good?
Avatar    Wed. 2/10/16 8:21pm hyde:

John Mayall is an OK kind of 60's white blues guy
Avatar Wed. 2/10/16 8:21pm glenn:

john mayall. king of the british blues.
Avatar Wed. 2/10/16 8:22pm glenn:

really more regarded for his various and sundry guitarists through the years.
Avatar Wed. 2/10/16 8:26pm Gary:

We should collectively write a book of some kind that distinguishes clearly between all of the people whose names sound similar, but whose musics radically depart from each other, so this sort of thing doesn't happen in a live playlist ever again
  Wed. 2/10/16 8:27pm Dean:

Rockpile was Lowe, Edmunds, and one or two others from Brinsley Schwarz. A supergroup of sorts.

Confusing Mayer and Mayall, nominal similarities aside, is WAY OFF BASE.

Then there's Sebastian Bach (Skid Row) and Johann Sebastian Bach. If you have to look it up, you'll never know.
Avatar Wed. 2/10/16 8:27pm listener james from westwood:

Lots to like in this set but this Nagat takes the cake.
Avatar Wed. 2/10/16 8:28pm glenn:

sebastian bach is very good in the gilmore girls, and a handy guy in a bar fight.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/10/16 8:28pm Uncle Michael:

The other two guys in Rockpile were Billy Bremner and Terry Williams...neither were in Brinsley Schwarz, though.
Avatar    Wed. 2/10/16 8:29pm hyde:

yeah, agreed with ljfw this is great. have you seen any of the Nagat films, Gary?
Avatar Wed. 2/10/16 8:30pm Gary:

I'm desperately trying to find the composer, James -- I was thinking Baligh Hamdi, but I'm not finding anything online ... I haven't seen any of her films, no ... Brinsley Schwarz! I remember reading about them in CREEM
  Wed. 2/10/16 8:32pm Dean:

Why do I persist in making that mistake? Even to the point of celebrating Bremner in The Pretenders because he "was in Brinsley Schwarz" when he wasn't? And Terry Williams was in Man, of course.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/10/16 8:33pm Uncle Michael:

I do not know.
  Wed. 2/10/16 8:37pm Dean:

But Brinsley Schwartz was in Brinsley Schwartz, right? I didn't get that one wrong?
  Wed. 2/10/16 8:37pm Doug Schulkind:

Nagat is most lovely.
  Wed. 2/10/16 8:37pm Dean:

Avatar Wed. 2/10/16 8:38pm Gary:

There's another ridiculously great track from this album, but it's on my external hard drive, which isn't plugged in at the moment
  Wed. 2/10/16 8:38pm David:

I know this Dizzy K track.
African Classics Radio

Avatar Wed. 2/10/16 8:53pm Gary:

I am so happy to live in a world where Dizzy K also exists. He's in London now, making gospel music, is what I read somewhere
Avatar Wed. 2/10/16 8:57pm glenn:

london being a hotbed for gospel.
Avatar Wed. 2/10/16 9:00pm Gary:

London is the Gospel Capital of Southeastern UK

Now, finally, we're hearing the guys in the photo to the left

Thanks, David! I love how you can hear that little snatchette of Tainted Love in this track
  Wed. 2/10/16 9:59pm Dean:

The Atavistic Marclay comp is '97. Not sure it saw an earlier issue.
