Very fitting to hear Haino this morning because I woke up to see this photo of him and hear that he did the soundtrack to Marc Jacobs runway event: postimg.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 6/30/16 9:16am Marcel M:

"Even going against the customary musical soundtrack, Jacobs had a single bell chimed repeatedly. He was inspired by Keiji Haino, the Japanese musician whose work explores the "haunted spaces between the notes," as the show notes said."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 6/30/16 9:16am Marcel M:

Oh inspired by him not done by him.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 6/30/16 9:17am Marcel M:

Well this source said Haino did it: "He set his show to silence, broken only by the occasional echoing chime, a track created by the Japanese rock star Keiji Haino, who focuses on what Mr. Jacobs’s crib sheet characterized as the “haunted space between the notes.”"

Avatar Thu. 6/30/16 9:57am Cecile:

The high fashion shows are R&D for their lines. Most fashion houses make their money off perfume.

Avatar Thu. 6/30/16 10:01am Cecile:

Who I really, really love is Chado Ralph Rucci. Rucci's deal is that everthing is bespoke, handmade, and a wearable piece of art. If I won the powerball, I would commission a jacket right away.

Comme is great! I also love the Belgians - Martin Margiela, Anne DeMullemeester, Dries van Noten.

And I also love Ralph Lauren and Michael Kors because they make pretty big girl clothes.

Oh, it looks like Ralph Rucci is doing some ready-to-wear. Hmmmm. maybe I can get a scarf.

Brian I have a cast iron pan from my husband's great aunt, I don't know who made it but it still works.

Keith Moon would be a terrible drummer in a lot of other bands, too.
  Thu. 6/30/16 11:14am Dean:

It sounds like their ubiquity, our strained familiarity with their records, is a big fatigue factor. I'd guess most of us heard most of what we heard of The Beatles on crappy sound systems: close-and-play turntables, transistor radios, etc. I bet a pristine record played on a decent sound system would turn heads.

@Ochre Ogre: That's "Honey Pie" (no "Wild" — two separate and unrelated songs with similar titles). Das Damen's "Wild Honey Pie" (heard earlier) is pretty faithful to the original.

You take a dreamy-faced crooner, an intellectual hardass, a genuine spiritualist, and a dart-throwing pub bloke, all of middling talent, but who happen to bring out the best in each other, and you have the pop equivalent of life on earth. It just shouldn't be.
  Thu. 6/30/16 11:30am Marie:

Such nice melodies in this song
Avatar Thu. 6/30/16 11:31am coelacanth:

"honey pie" is probably pretty close to Paul's true nature - or at least his roots; "wild honey pie" is Paul trying to show that he too can be wild and crazy, and maybe "avant garde".

You've made your point! Enough beatles! Ahhh!

coelcanath, Paul had plenty of wild side, see his recent stint with the remains of Nirvarna

There's an entire Trojan box set of Beatles covers.

Gaylord! Just tuned in now to this pleasant surprise.
Avatar Thu. 6/30/16 11:37am coelacanth:

llid, i will check that out. i wouldn't doubt that he's more adventurous now than he's ever been.
...he had some rock n roll in him in the early days, but when pushed to really let loose it was pretty (very) contrived. (i.e. "i'm down" and " long tall sally"...and "kansas city hey hey"...one of the worst songs ever recorded by anyone!)
  Thu. 6/30/16 11:39am Ochre Ogre:

Ah right Gaylord, I stand corrected. Missed you last Sunday at 5:00. Great show Chris!

colecanath, helter skelter covers "wild paul" for me
Avatar Thu. 6/30/16 11:43am coelacanth:

i love helter skelter, and it's pretty badass; but Paul's original plan wasn't quite as wild as what it ended up being. (i like the original version too though.)
Avatar Thu. 6/30/16 11:47am coelacanth:

shit, i missed what song Gaylord was talking about.
-for me it's "hey jude". i always skip it; but i Love Wilson Pickett's version.
  Thu. 6/30/16 11:47am Dean:

"Till There Was You" Heh heh.

Will always love the Husker Du take on Helter Skelter.
Avatar Thu. 6/30/16 11:48am coelacanth:

till there was you: not a beatles song.

I fully endorse this episode and the premise behind it. Even though I missed most of it and will have to dig it later in the day. ThankS CHRIS!
  Thu. 6/30/16 11:50am Dean:

Waddya mean?! It's on Meet the...! All that's missing from that album is an instrumental interlude of "76 Trombones"!
  Thu. 6/30/16 11:50am llid:

HATE Beach Boys, but that movie last year was wonderful
Avatar Thu. 6/30/16 11:51am coelacanth:

damn... i don't always appreciate Gaylord's pop sensibilities, but we see each-other regarding the beatles.
(i despise most beach boys music though!)
Avatar Thu. 6/30/16 11:51am βrian:

The Beach Boys are too saccharine and inorganic for my ears. And I love cilantro.

Never clicked with the Beach Boys at all.

Speaking of songs which break your brain in a way which ends up having a lasting effect: that's what happened the first time I heard The Shaggs on the radio (probably in 1979).

I initially HATED them - the song (My Pal Foot Foot, I think) seemed wrong in every possible way, and even kind of threateningly, corrosively wrong - but I couldn't stop thinking about the song, and what it was about it that annoyed me so.

I couldn't stop thinking about it.

And eventually I embraced it, and the power of how its "off" timing resonated where it collided with my expectations.
  Thu. 6/30/16 11:54am Ochre Ogre:

"Hey Jude" cover by Wilson Pickett is of the charts, but, I think it did as well or better on the charts as the original.

Hey, dude!
  Thu. 6/30/16 11:55am Jeff:

And as for those Beach Boys - eww. Nearly everything they did which was super-popular just seems retch-inducingly insipid to me. And often casually sexist.
  Thu. 6/30/16 11:55am Marie:

Great show, thanks! I always hated "Hey Jude." (Was a big Beatles fan as a kid, then hated them for a while, then started appreciating them again)
  Thu. 6/30/16 11:55am llid:

Jeff what melted my Shaggs brain was realizing all that guitar was double tracked

Shoulda played Kevin Ayers' cover of The Beatles' cover of "Falling in Love Again."
