"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

Even Fred Frith sounds mainstream after that last number.
  Wed. 3/2/16 7:06am Carly:

We love your show.
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 7:08am John Allen:

actually if you drill down into programming history at WFMU, you'll find Fred Frith was mainstream

Hello, John. Enjoying the Neil.
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 7:47am the Canterbury wood-elf:

Did I hear somewhere that Frith had a show on FMU when he lived in NYC? Presumably that was all before anything was getting archived. Anyone remember it, what kind of thing he did?
Avatar Wed. 3/2/16 7:48am John Allen:

yeah he had a show here for awhile sometime around the mid-80s . pre-archives.

Cook, this Keiko Higuchi (people passing my office are giving me funny looks, though).
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/2/16 8:27am doctorjazz:

And not familiar with Heron Oblivion, sounds like they're a more intense/edgy version of stuff that came out of Fairport...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/2/16 8:49am George of Troy:

Corker of a set, John. Thanks!
