Flash Strap's avatar View Flash Strap's profile Options

This is where all of culture and all of time are collapsed into one seductive portal and viewed through the panoramic lens of the exotic. Come and embark on an armchair-travel virtual-voyage to the heart of timeless darkness and beyond; embrace the numinous monolith of the exotic immensity. Let us find that place where hybridization meets its destiny as pure fantasy. Let us become observers observing those others who are ourselves. You wear your mask and I'll wear mine.

Just so we all know: This Explorers Room is a tribute to my partner of eight years, on her birthday. We'll be hearing some of her favorite songs, and then some
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 7:25pm Flash Strap:

(her favorites, and likewise mine)

happy birthday to her!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/31/16 7:34pm Uncle Michael:

Greetings.
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 7:35pm Flash Strap:

I love Exuma, but Nina does this thing where she almost always takes a cover and makes it the definitive version
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 7:35pm Flash Strap:

Hey Uncle !
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 3/31/16 7:36pm melinda:

Yeah, she really does have a way with covers. And unexpected ones too.
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 7:36pm Flash Strap:

and this ending she does!
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 7:37pm ndbob:

for sure Melinda!
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 7:38pm Flash Strap:

I love how she just stops cold, before the band even knows what's going on: "it's finished."
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 7:39pm Flash Strap:

Kate Bush is so crazy good
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 7:41pm ndbob:

Yep - I remember buying the first Kate Bush LP when it came out based on reviews - I had no idea what it would sound like
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 7:42pm Flash Strap:

I think for me Hounds of Love is the ultimate Kate Bush LP, the best, but The Dreaming just lights me on fire every time. Totally unexpected at every turn
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/31/16 7:44pm Uncle Michael:

I feel Betty Davis coming on.
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 7:45pm Sadhu Sadhu:

This track is on fire!

called it so hard, Uncle
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/31/16 7:48pm Uncle Michael:

Was that a prediction or a request?
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 7:49pm Flash Strap:

total prediction: that transition was set in stone
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/31/16 7:51pm Uncle Michael:

Oh Divine songs! Sweet. Love that record
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 7:54pm Flash Strap:

It is as holy as a record can be
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 7:55pm hyde:

i don't think i have this one. i like Journey in Satchidananda the best, personally
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 7:57pm Flash Strap:

That's my favorite record of hers as well, Hyde, though this is number two. It's my favorite of her non-jazz records for sure. Satchinanda is just untouchable
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 7:57pm hyde:

(though on a different day i'd probably say Universal Consciousness)
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 7:57pm ndbob:

excellent first hour Evan! catch the rest on the archive
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 7:58pm Flash Strap:

that one's amazing too. she's amazing

Bye Bob! Miss you already
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 7:58pm Sadhu Sadhu:

Journey in Satchi is fantastic, ive played my copy to shreds, but a lot of her later stuff is great too. I pretty much love everything shes done thou...
  Thu. 3/31/16 8:04pm Little Danny:

Oh! So that's how Bebe Barron is pronounced. In isolation I'd always said "Beeb."
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 8:07pm Flash Strap:

I think so, Danny, but I'm just guessing.
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 8:07pm Flash Strap:

I'm with you Sadhu. It's all genius
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 8:10pm hyde:

i always laugh at "what about goat rights. what about stoat rights" no matter how many times i hear this
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 8:10pm Ham:

frog rights!
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 8:10pm Flash Strap:

I always want to do a whole Moondog show, but I feel like it's been done a zillion times. I just love the guy
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 8:11pm Flash Strap:

me too Hyde! Stoat rights is a perfectly comedic concept, not to mention a wicked rhyme
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 8:13pm hyde:

the stoat/goat combo crops up in an old bugs bunny cartoon with the tasmanian devil, too. it's just so perfect.
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 8:15pm Sadhu Sadhu:

First Alice then from Moondog to Cohran. Great stuff mr! Thats 3 of my favorites in a very short span of time.
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 8:16pm Flash Strap:

for them that don't know: pretty much the whole Hypnotic Brass Ensemble are Cohran's sons

still blows my mind that Ahbez had any connection to Ghost Riders
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 8:24pm Flash Strap:

Also, we'd both die for Harry Nilsson, there's another one
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/31/16 8:25pm Uncle Michael:

For sure. There aren't superlatives sufficient for me to comment on "Think About Your Troubles."
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 3/31/16 8:25pm melinda:

I love Sugar Town. Someone said recently on WFMU that it was about dropping acid.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/31/16 8:26pm Uncle Michael:

Two days ago I essentially downloaded all of Nancy's music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/31/16 8:27pm Uncle Michael:

I was looking for something in particular...it was all just there...so what the hell...
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 8:27pm Flash Strap:

makes sense- it's a pretty hardcore sentiment to eschew friendship of all kinds and just laugh at the sun. I could see it being some Teachings of Don Juan shit
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 8:28pm Flash Strap:

It's so good, man.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/31/16 8:28pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

This is a day that needs Nilsson.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/31/16 8:28pm Uncle Michael:

A day with bits of crap around its bottom.
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 8:28pm Flash Strap:

hey rabbit!
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 8:29pm Flash Strap:

Speaking of, I just realized today that Nilsson wrote the Turtles "Battle of the bands" track
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/31/16 8:30pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Nancy really singing quite well here. Picked it up somewhere I guess...
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 8:30pm Flash Strap:

"bivouac, yesss"
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 8:31pm Flash Strap:

she does a great deal with her instrument, despite doing very little with it, all at once. I love her
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/31/16 8:32pm Uncle Michael:

I have Nancy lined up for a week from tomorrow.
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 8:35pm Flash Strap:

there's an intense rhyme: Romeo-me; Salomé
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/31/16 8:36pm Uncle Michael:

Reminiscent of the rhymes in "Peel Me A Grape."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/31/16 8:37pm Uncle Michael:

Or "Always True to you In My Fashion."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/31/16 8:41pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Oh right Moondog. Had me thinking Robert Wyatt or someone...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/31/16 8:42pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

How did it start?: 'Too great to be good'...bang.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/31/16 8:46pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...like Daevid Allen's 'Who's Afraid Of' kind of lyric - & Moondog influenced Phillip Glass too. Heavys.
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 8:47pm Flash Strap:

I agree, Moondog and Wyatt have a lot of kinship between them, I love them in similar ways
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/31/16 8:48pm Uncle Michael:

In some ways I have trouble reconciling the two Wyatts. The shirtless, vigorous drummer/singer and the damaged outsider. I have great affection for both...but almost like two different men in my mind.
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 8:50pm Flash Strap:

the little voice lives in both, and both were radical socialists. For me, all continuity is maintained by End of an Ear, and large parts of the Matching Mole records. I love that he contains multiples, if not multitudes
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/31/16 8:51pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...& Van Ronk here reminds me of Incredible String Band! - or the other way around...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/31/16 8:52pm Uncle Michael:

Well said, Flash.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/31/16 8:53pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Well - Wyatt wen thru gigantic changes - along w/ those times, I think. Like everyone that close to the idea of RevolutionEvolution out of '67-8...drugs, & the small matter of falling out a window of course...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/31/16 8:54pm Uncle Michael:

I'd never heard of him before "Shipbuilding," of course.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/31/16 8:56pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

It's delicious that I can still learn things about Psychedelic London - just like GarageRawk records still being unearthed. What a lot of Boomers there must have been...
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 8:56pm Flash Strap:

Rock Bottom was my first, such an avant-garde masterpiece. I can never hear it enough. Then there's the early-80's socialist polemic stuff, which I adoooooore

I've been cooking up a Wyatt show, but unsure if there would be enough interest
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 8:58pm Flash Strap:

actually, I guess Soft machine was my first, but they never did much for me
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/31/16 8:59pm Uncle Michael:

I really like Soft Machine.
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 8:59pm Flash Strap:

Eddie and Ernie are the greatest. we don't deserve them
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/31/16 9:00pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I still think SoftMachine *had* to be among the very earliest JazzRock Fusion anywhere @ all - but I'm not sure they're credited.
E&E track indeed wonderful.
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 9:01pm Flash Strap:

they're great... they just keep me at a distance somehow. I like them enough that I went in deeper anyway
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/31/16 9:02pm Uncle Michael:

Irwin Chusid approves.
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 9:03pm hyde:

me, i like the book Soft Machine more than the band Soft Machine
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/31/16 9:03pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Well - Soft Machine is fairly dense; the mix we get might not be the best. They tend to have this particular unrelenting fusion groove - & a couple of very kewl songs. Just the idea of bills w/ them & Hendrix & Syd Barrett makes me dizzy...
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 9:05pm Flash Strap:

@ Hyde: that's a given for me as well
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/31/16 9:06pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I doubt I'll ever warm to Geddy Lee's voice as I have Jon Anderson's.

Jon is high, Geddy is nasal.

I second that, Uncle. I third that
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 9:24pm Flash Strap:

i mean, whoever said that I could listen to even one whole Rush song was a damn liar
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 9:26pm Flash Strap:

and while i struggle with some Yes, I've come around all the way, all the whole way, on Jon & Vangelis

also I've always loved Fragile. can't help it, don't want to
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/31/16 9:28pm Uncle Michael:

I had this song in my head during the Tony Carey. In fact, I almost called this one, too.
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 9:28pm Flash Strap:

I believe that! I almost didn't play them both
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 9:28pm Flash Strap:

but i like them both a lot, so i did
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 9:29pm hyde:

i'm still not convinced about Jon & Vangelis but damn i loooove this Neil Young record
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/31/16 9:30pm Uncle Michael:

Of course, Sample an Hold woulda worked too.
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 9:31pm hyde:

oh, and this one too
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/31/16 9:31pm Uncle Michael:

I think Neil wrote this last year when Crosby was mouthing off about Daryl Hannah.
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 9:32pm Flash Strap:

I actually like that one even more, come to think of it. Whole record is killer
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 9:35pm Flash Strap:

loose improvisational jimi is best jimi
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 9:36pm Flash Strap:

what did Crosby say about Daryl Hannah, anyway? It boggles the mind to wonder
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/31/16 9:37pm Uncle Michael:

Stuff like Rainy Day Dream Away are essentially jams.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/31/16 9:37pm Uncle Michael:

Oh, he called her a predator, or something...in the press. Breaking up Neil's marriage...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/31/16 9:38pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Every note goes - out - bends the strings so far - 'loopy' notes. My favorite artist.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/31/16 9:38pm Uncle Michael:

Now Nash is going after Crosby...unrelated stuff...old guys feuding.
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 9:39pm Flash Strap:

oh holy shit

i missed that entire development

Neil Young and Peggi Young are SPLITS??? crazy town times holy moly
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 9:39pm Flash Strap:

yeah those guys are at their worst when they are near each other or talking about each other
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 9:39pm hyde:

not just a predator, a "purely poisonous predator".
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 9:40pm hyde:

it's surprising that David Crosby can remember enough stuff to feud about
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/31/16 9:41pm Uncle Michael:

Crosby is a very sharp guy. I've spent time with him...one on one, on two occasions.
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 9:41pm Jeff Golick:

...if only he could remember his name?
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 9:42pm Flash Strap:

interesting, uncle

would love to know more
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/31/16 9:42pm Uncle Michael:

That's a great album, Jeff. One I truly love.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/31/16 9:43pm Uncle Michael:

I'm disturbed that Crosby has burned such bridges in recent times.
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 9:44pm hyde:

@UM & Jeff i too really love that crazy, wasted, sloppy mess of a record
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/31/16 9:44pm Uncle Michael:

I'll tell you that both times we were alone, it was in hotel rooms...but I wouldn't read too much into that.
Avatar Thu. 3/31/16 9:45pm Flash Strap:

reading deep now
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/31/16 9:46pm Uncle Michael:

Once was purely social..unwinding after a show...harder for a sober guy to do...he ate all my fruit salad and talked about sci-fi. The other time I was interviewing him.

I think of Roger McGuinn saying that all the way back to the birth of the bYRds - something about Crosby made him think he was too much of a handful - but his talent made it impossible to say no. & I think of Cros getting busted w/ guns & just saying - 'John Lennon'...his Autobio is harrowing - the ultimate boomer RockStar narrative - took drugs *all the way*...

Jack Nicholson once looked at me and said "How ya doin'" and sounded exactly like a guy doing a Jack Nicholson impression.

he was unspeakably rude to me in an elevator, and i didn't know who he was. only that he was ridiculous, he looked just like Rod Stewart, and the doors were about to close and separate us forever
