How 'bout something from Neko Case's collab with k.d. lang, to keep the New Porno related theme going?
  Mon. 8/22/16 12:39am tuner fish:

Nice Tuuuuunes!!!!
  Mon. 8/22/16 12:39am Ike:

I'm a bit perturbed there's a fake Orb. Ambient/trance fans of the 90s will riot and burn things down when they hear about this! Ha. (Srsly tho, it's one thing to call yrself Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, but what did the Orb ever do to anybody? They're still putting out decent stuff, too, and killer live shows.)
  Mon. 8/22/16 12:45am joel:

this song makes me feel like i'm drag racing the grim reaper
  Mon. 8/22/16 12:46am zenkoan:

yeah..but we're all always doing that when you think about it...

Very artistic piece of music.
  Mon. 8/22/16 12:50am Rod Holcomb:

Very poetic.
  Mon. 8/22/16 1:00am phat:

working in a record store in the 90s was wonderful
  Mon. 8/22/16 1:17am phat:

funny, the 90s...
  Mon. 8/22/16 1:20am phat:

I regret a lot about the 90s, but I still get wistful
  Mon. 8/22/16 1:26am phat:

what a truly odd, wonderful song from Bowie (fantastic voyage)
  Mon. 8/22/16 1:38am Lyle:

REM? I remember those boys. A rowdy bunch, as I recall. I only say that because I was on a late '70's swing through Georgia with the Ralph Marterie Orchestra and we played a date in Athens. At the Athens Gold and Country Club, I believe it was. Anyway, there were a couple of rabble-rousers in attendance. Way in the back of the room where we couldn't see them. I could tell they were getting on Ralph's nerves and you didn't want to do that if you knew what was good for you. I saw Ralph stick a thrown baton in a man's eyeball from 40-feet away one night. He was a thrower. Turns out the hecklers were in this popular band called REM, which was from Athens. The guitarist, I forget his name, Buck something. Buck Michaels, that was it. Anyway, Buck's evidently had a few and he decides to stand on his table and do a little impromptu jig during "Lost In The Stars," which is one of the prettier, more emotionally-charged songs we performed with the Marterie band. The patrons of the club were appalled, but Michael's distracted them by throwing a large wad of cash into the air, which drifted lazily to the carpet as many in the audience dove and wrestled with each other to gather up. This sight infuriated Ralph and he threw his baton at Buck as hard as he could. Luckily, it missed, but it stuck to the wooden wall behind the drunken guitarist a good inch-deep in the grain. If it had struck him, it might have gone clean through his skull. I'd seen that happen once before in Honduras with Ralph, but not stateside. Folks weren't used to that kind of thing stateside. Without his baton. Ralph charged directly at Buck, tipped his table, and brought the drunken janglist to the hard floor with an audible whump! Mind you, we just kept playing onstage. Ralph aways told us that when he went into the crowd to beat on someone, we should just keep right on playing, and so we did. By the time we made the coda, Ralph had not only subdued Buck Michaels, but he had hog-tied the singer, what's his name? Stapp? Mark Stapp, that's it. By that time he'd pulled an electric lamp off the wall and had used the cord to hogtie Stapp to his chair. "Do I need to gag you?" I remember him yelling it, all red-faced, spittle flying from his thick, bluish lips. "Do I need to gag you?" Stapp shook his head no. He was quiet from then on. We played for another hour, but the mood was broken. Nobody danced. Ralph punished the crowd by playing strictly stuff from his latest album, which the audience was unfamiliar with. "A Summer Thing." Of course, now days it's one of the most popular releases in the Marterie canon, but at that time, it was new, different, even a little left of center for Ralph's usual listeners with its marimbas and ratchets, and guiros. It would take them another decade to catch up, and by that time Ralph was gone. I loved playing that band. I wouldn't have near as much fun in my next gig with Kim Carnes. It took her a year with me to realize she didn't really need a trombone. It's like that sometimes. They think they need you, but they don't.
