Little Danny's avatar View Little Danny's profile Options

Postwar atmospherica. High bop modernism and Afro-Latin sounds, twilight exotica and soundtrack moods, soul stompers and weepers, hypnotic R&B and blues, mystical '60s pop, lonely country, lonelier rock 'n' roll, instrumental weirdness, electronic creaking. Bringing worlds beyond into the worlds at hand.

SHIT! THIS FROGS COVER IS THE BUSINESS!
Avatar Thu. 10/6/16 10:16pm Little Danny:

OH YES IT IS. So druggy! Also, German
Avatar Thu. 10/6/16 10:16pm geezerette:

It is! Man, Bo Diddley, some kind of genius.

And now: an official classic™
Avatar Thu. 10/6/16 10:22pm geezerette:

He's always hypnotic and spacey. I love him too.
Never heard this Feelies record before, you can really hear the connection. Thanks for making it!
Avatar Thu. 10/6/16 10:23pm hyde:

aw, haven't listened to The Feelies for awhile now.
Avatar Thu. 10/6/16 10:24pm geezerette:

Lately all the roots of VU are exposed and all roads track forward and back to Lou. Zeitgeisty.
Avatar Thu. 10/6/16 10:27pm Little Danny:

Quite accurate, geez! Strains of hypnotic guitar and pounding drums course through postwar electric music
Avatar Thu. 10/6/16 10:42pm geezerette:

The opening of this recording always reminds me of Billy Strayhorn.
Lovely wistful melancholy. Bill Evans is a favorite of mine.
Avatar Thu. 10/6/16 10:44pm Little Danny:

Ah, yes - wish I had some Strayhorn cued up or easily at hand. Any particular Strayhorn faves, geez?
Avatar Thu. 10/6/16 10:47pm geezerette:

A flower is a lovesome thing. Anything really.
But this is perfect too. :)
Avatar Thu. 10/6/16 10:51pm Little Danny:

Ah, thanks geez - I'll look into that Strayhorn recommendation
Avatar Thu. 10/6/16 10:55pm geezerette:

My pleasure Danny. I'm enjoying this so much.

  Thu. 10/6/16 11:01pm Pete from Melbourne Austraila:

Hi Danny, nice Jazz, missed the start of the show, but will listen back when it comes up latter. Could I request some King Nando, at some time in the future, cheers Pete
Avatar Thu. 10/6/16 11:03pm Little Danny:

Pistol Pete! Glad you could make it. Will absolutely work in some King Nando for ya
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/6/16 11:05pm JtotheK:

hi danny, hi everyone.
Avatar Thu. 10/6/16 11:07pm Dano59:

nice Dream Syndicate selection earlier ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/6/16 11:11pm coelacanth:

sweet!
Avatar Thu. 10/6/16 11:12pm Little Danny:

J2tK, Dano59: the party may now pop off!
Avatar Thu. 10/6/16 11:13pm Dano59:

oooh I love Summer Sun ... a great alternate-universe hit
Avatar Thu. 10/6/16 11:15pm Little Danny:

oh, totally - those hooks are deep. And very Swedish, somehow
Avatar Thu. 10/6/16 11:16pm Dano59:

Sweden's been a wellspring of great pop into this century...
Avatar Thu. 10/6/16 11:19pm Little Danny:

absolutely, tho I can't quite nail down why their hooks are so sublime
Avatar Thu. 10/6/16 11:19pm geezerette:

So beautiful.
Avatar Thu. 10/6/16 11:19pm Dano59:

Clandestine exposure to the Hollies, maybe?
Avatar Thu. 10/6/16 11:20pm Dano59:

agrred, geezerette. Hauntingly so
Avatar Thu. 10/6/16 11:21pm Little Danny:

Yep, and blonde and beautiful genetics manifest in harmonies
Avatar Thu. 10/6/16 11:21pm geezerette:

yep. :)
Avatar Thu. 10/6/16 11:22pm Little Danny:

Apologies for the unintentionally Aryan message of my comment above. Oof
Avatar Thu. 10/6/16 11:23pm Dano59:

Chad & Jeremy & Peter Noone might take it as a compliment
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/6/16 11:24pm JtotheK:

and it shall live on in perpetuity via the magic of the message board archive! ha ha.
Avatar Thu. 10/6/16 11:24pm geezerette:

It's OK,think we know what you meant.
Avatar Thu. 10/6/16 11:25pm Little Danny:

haha
Avatar Thu. 10/6/16 11:26pm geezerette:

Hey Dano59,pleased to "meet" you.
  Thu. 10/6/16 11:27pm Dean:

Besides, I don't believe phenotypes comprise a zero-sum economy. "Blonde and beautiful" doesn't mean "not-blonde isn't beautiful," too.
Avatar Thu. 10/6/16 11:28pm geezerette:

Dean,well done. :)
Avatar Thu. 10/6/16 11:29pm Little Danny:

yes, thanks for the save, Dean! And hello!
Avatar Thu. 10/6/16 11:31pm geezerette:

more gorgeousness.
  Thu. 10/6/16 11:33pm Dean:

Reminds me to read On the Origin of Species. One of these days.
Avatar Thu. 10/6/16 11:37pm Little Danny:

This Googie Rene is so ridiculous. But fun!
  Thu. 10/6/16 11:38pm Pete from Melbourne Austraila:

Nice version of a oft well covered fave 'Feelin Good' by Pat Bowie, some one I not familar with, Duke Pearson track is a killer as well, Romesville Dad!!
Avatar Thu. 10/6/16 11:41pm Little Danny:

glad you dug, Pete - rare is the bad version of "Feeling Good," tho that Pat Bowie is one of the best in my opinion
  Thu. 10/6/16 11:48pm Dean:

Bill Evans. I sure wish there he were again.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/6/16 11:48pm JtotheK:

enjoyed that googie rene, and the pike!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/6/16 11:54pm JtotheK:

great show, as always! cheers everyone.
  Thu. 10/6/16 11:55pm Pete from Melbourne Austraila:

Yep nice show Danny, want one of those WMFU bumper stickers! Get the word out down here in Melb Australia!
