Hey, Matt! Psych away!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/23/16 3:05pm MattBelow:

Hey V! I am gonna fake my way through it with dirty 45s!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/23/16 3:07pm Gaylord Fields:

Matt, the correct term for those records is "pre-loved"!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/23/16 3:09pm MattBelow:

@Gaylord: Indeed! When I get a new pile of 45s I just can't resist just throwing them on. Btw I heard your famous single over the weekend.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/23/16 3:11pm Gaylord Fields:

@Matt: Sorry.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/23/16 3:12pm MattBelow:

@Gaylord: No I was tappin' me feet and groovin' me head!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/23/16 3:13pm Gaylord Fields:

And here I thought you had good taste!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/23/16 3:15pm MattBelow:

Will I be seeing you at The Bangles show on Saturday?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/23/16 3:18pm Gaylord Fields:

I'll be spending the weekend on the Jersey Shore, so no Vicki Peterson, et al., for me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/23/16 3:19pm Mike Sin:

Hi Matt -- So nice to hear this show live after a few weeks... work had me marching around.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/23/16 3:20pm Mike Sin:

And, hullow dare, Gaylord!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/23/16 3:20pm Gaylord Fields:

And I'm sure they'll be playing a lot of the "Bangs" era choons and other early, more '60s-infuenced songs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/23/16 3:21pm MattBelow:

Hey Mr Sin! Glad you get to stay for a spell!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/23/16 3:21pm MattBelow:

@Gaylord: All reports are they playing the first EP completely
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/23/16 3:22pm Gaylord Fields:

Fancy meeting you here, Mr. Sin. Always a pleasure!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/23/16 3:23pm Gaylord Fields:

@Matt: Aw, nuts! I love love love that record!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/23/16 3:26pm MattBelow:

Eve of Destruction?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/23/16 3:27pm Gaylord Fields:

I meant the Bangles EP.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/23/16 3:28pm MattBelow:

That first EP is one of the greatest pieces of Beatlesque rock EVER
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/23/16 3:33pm Gaylord Fields:

Hence its appeal to a fake Beatles fan such as I.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/23/16 3:35pm Mike Sin:

re: "Stepping Stone"
Is there any record that more encapsulates 1966 better than this one? The E-G-A-C progression, the snotty vocals, the jungle drums, the spooky keyboards, the cut-time rave ups... all those little elements are incorporated.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/23/16 3:35pm MattBelow:

I'd love to riff with you lads on a Taxman-esque compilation
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/23/16 3:36pm Gaylord Fields:

I may know of a couple of examples, yes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/23/16 3:37pm MattBelow:

I gotta say I think the Raiders version might edge out over the Monkees one for me...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/23/16 3:38pm Gaylord Fields:

Other than "I'm in Line" and (of course) "Start," that is.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/23/16 3:38pm Mike Sin:

My favorite contribution to the "Taxman"-esque comp: "Mr. Moonshine Man" by Herman's Hermits
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/23/16 3:39pm MattBelow:

"In My Own Time" - Bee Gees
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/23/16 3:39pm MattBelow:

Yes Mr Sin! That is one of the best Hermit tunes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/23/16 3:40pm Gaylord Fields:

Just going to say "Moonshine Man" and "In My Own Time." And the Monkees' "You Told Me" qualifies.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/23/16 3:42pm MattBelow:

"Earnest Of Being George" also the Bee Gees
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/23/16 3:42pm Gaylord Fields:

And what about the Blue Things' "One Hour Cleaners"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/23/16 3:45pm Gaylord Fields:

Matt, I think you now have a themes set for next April 15 or thereabouts!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/23/16 3:48pm MattBelow:

Excellent idea! I will have to you on Gaylord
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/23/16 3:49pm Gaylord Fields:

Gladly!
  Tue. 8/23/16 3:54pm Sissophonic Cheryl:

My fave!!!!! Love love love
  Tue. 8/23/16 3:54pm Sissophonic Cheryl:

Go Matt go!!!! xoxox
Avatar Tue. 8/23/16 3:55pm Wilson K:

Well I'm going to have to go home and try that piano line ASAP
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/23/16 3:57pm MattBelow:

@Wilson: I can't resist picking up an acoustic playing and playing the Cherry, Cherry groove
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/23/16 3:58pm MattBelow:

Hey Cheryl!! Hope you're having a good day!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/23/16 3:59pm MattBelow:

Thanks everyone for tuning in!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/23/16 4:02pm Gaylord Fields:

Till Thursday!
