That instrument sounds like that sound you hear in The Beatles "Baby, You're A Rick Man"....
  Mon. 8/8/16 5:50pm vince:

..and, like the indian instrument used in George Harrison's "Wonderwall Music" album

Take Stimmhorn for all your avant garde yodelling needs.
Avatar Mon. 8/8/16 6:17pm People Like Us:

well they can yodel, yes
yes, like Stimmhorn!
Avatar Mon. 8/8/16 6:17pm People Like Us:

lots of avant yodellers
Avatar Mon. 8/8/16 6:18pm People Like Us:

it's very nice being on between Scott and Dan's shows
Avatar Mon. 8/8/16 6:18pm People Like Us:

imagine them making this track
Avatar Mon. 8/8/16 6:19pm Webhamster Henry:

This is very stereo. for once I'm sitting in a wide stereo field!
Avatar Mon. 8/8/16 6:20pm People Like Us:

yes I think we forgot about stereo
got all into quad and forgot about stereo
then forgot about quad
Avatar Mon. 8/8/16 6:20pm litmuspie:

That soundslke a trumptonesque guitar
Avatar Mon. 8/8/16 6:20pm fred:

What? No yodeling today? You can come close enough. Swinglargo could be tweaked near (one of my fave songs ever, until I heard Eve of Sunshine)
Avatar Mon. 8/8/16 6:20pm People Like Us:

it does!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/8/16 6:21pm dale:

i dipped my toe into octophonic recordings but the speaker budget was just too much.
Avatar Mon. 8/8/16 6:21pm People Like Us:

too late, Fred! Dan will make up for it... I play yodel all the time of course
Avatar Mon. 8/8/16 6:23pm People Like Us:

I'd have done it MUCH MORE
  Mon. 8/8/16 6:24pm vince:

Of COURSE!
Avatar Mon. 8/8/16 6:25pm People Like Us:

I wonder if it was sneaky sampling
Avatar Mon. 8/8/16 6:25pm People Like Us:

although the Beatles are not litigious historically
  Mon. 8/8/16 6:26pm vince:

I think... they 'credit' it on the cD booklet
Avatar Mon. 8/8/16 6:26pm fred:

I'm on vacation for a change, I usually listen to the archives -- irregularly -- and don't comment

oh hope you're having a good vacation

Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/8/16 6:26pm Kat in Chicago:

I read that they contacted Paul personally
Avatar Mon. 8/8/16 6:27pm People Like Us:

really Kat? Wow
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/8/16 6:27pm Kat in Chicago:

They had trouble with the choir that sings "Come Together" on "The Noisy Eater" though. Not from Paul (and Yoko!), but from the choir. Almost didn't make it on the album.
Avatar Mon. 8/8/16 6:28pm People Like Us:

I'd never contact him (even though I love his music)
Avatar Mon. 8/8/16 6:28pm People Like Us:

the rowdy ruffian choir
  Mon. 8/8/16 6:29pm vince:

HEY...I've been 'mentioned'!!!!!

Matt Berry's podcast with Paul McCartney (voiced by Peter Serafinowicz) is a wonderful piece of cringe.

I saw Matmos do this live on a boat, it was mind-blowing
Avatar Mon. 8/8/16 6:44pm northguineahills:

@Fred: I saw Matmos do this track at the same show Vicki played. Fond memories!

Nice pokey flute there
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/8/16 6:46pm Kat in Chicago:

I wish I was in a place where I could sing along to this without getting fired or committed. Wait! Do I hear shittyflute?
Avatar Mon. 8/8/16 6:46pm melinda:

I never get tired of this song. Nice shittyflute augmentation.
  Mon. 8/8/16 6:47pm vince:

It's scaring the cat, that's for sure
Avatar Mon. 8/8/16 6:47pm fred:

Extra mind-fuck points: French 60's singer Christophe was right next to me at that show
  Mon. 8/8/16 6:48pm vince:

I need to see People Like Us live!
  Mon. 8/8/16 6:48pm mink:

I like the sound of it, too...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/8/16 6:49pm Folsom:

I found my otamatone volume switch really doesn't do much, it does change the pitch a little.
Avatar Mon. 8/8/16 6:49pm People Like Us:

so hard to play it
Avatar Mon. 8/8/16 6:49pm Webhamster Henry:

That or a job interview at a Cocktail Bar.
Avatar Mon. 8/8/16 6:50pm Mister Dobalina:

Take On Me ... ShittyFlute is pretty intense...just heard for first time. People were asking if it could be purchased on iTunes.
  Mon. 8/8/16 6:50pm vince:

4 WEEKS?!?!?!
Avatar Mon. 8/8/16 6:50pm Webhamster Henry:

It's a short summer at WFMU this year.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/8/16 6:51pm Folsom:

I didn't go for the de-lux version, too much money, i think the volume works on that one
Avatar Mon. 8/8/16 6:51pm People Like Us:

yes, very short summer, welcome
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/8/16 6:51pm Kat in Chicago:

short summer :(

Avatar Mon. 8/8/16 6:51pm fred:

a-ha + shittyflutte: a match made in whatever
Avatar Mon. 8/8/16 6:53pm People Like Us:

the idea of a deluxe version of anything that sounds like an otamatone is hilarious
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/8/16 6:54pm Folsom:

The cheap one on amazon is only around $20, the deluxe was over $50.
  Mon. 8/8/16 6:54pm el BO-Bo:

Is this show live....or Memorex?
Avatar Mon. 8/8/16 6:54pm People Like Us:

Avatar Mon. 8/8/16 6:55pm People Like Us:

they are pretty much a stylophone
Avatar Mon. 8/8/16 6:55pm People Like Us:

recorders are better for the bad job
  Mon. 8/8/16 6:56pm vince:

My recorder is lost, in my many moves I've made.
Avatar Mon. 8/8/16 6:56pm People Like Us:

this hour went faster than usual
I have a new recorder - not as good as a "real" one but squeaks well enough

The right tool for a bad job

He got moves.
Avatar Mon. 8/8/16 6:57pm ironybread:

DAMMIT I’ve missed the entire show up to this point, so I have about a minute to run down the entire playlist so far and react encouragingly to everything. My positive reinforcement will commence after a brief interlude
Avatar Mon. 8/8/16 6:58pm ironybread:

DAMMIT whole playlist looks great

it's ok ironybread, you can hear it again once Becky timestamps it with her magic timestamper
Avatar Mon. 8/8/16 6:58pm litmuspie:

This show is bringing my birthday to a close. With style.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/8/16 6:59pm Folsom:

Have a happy week everyone
