In case anyone's wondering, today's playlist image is a still from the 1977 film "Riddles of the Sphinx": www.youtube.com...

Oh, and the film's score is by Soft Machine's Mike Ratledge!

Pre-hello, Tony. Enjoy the snow up there last week?
Avatar Tue. 12/20/16 11:59am Tony Coulter:

Heya, Carmichael!

The snow itself was dandy. The snow melting all at once as temperatures abruptly rose was a pain -- it led to multiple leaks in our basement.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 12/20/16 12:01pm listener james from westwood:

w00t! Happy Tuesday, Tony and all! Sorry to hear about the leaky basement!

27 in the Greater Sacramento area last night. Absolute weather lunacy for this area.

they can mess you up.
  Tue. 12/20/16 12:30pm Dean:

My kids went ice skating yesterday. Well, the 10YO did. The 5YO was supposed to get on the ice, but she broke her arm over the weekend on the monkey bars.
Avatar Tue. 12/20/16 12:31pm northguineahills:

yeah, those Zambonis are crafty and quick, I always keep an eye peeled for them on the ice.

great track here (Ron Miller), Tony. Completely missed this one back in the day.

Heya, Mark!

Much of today's show will be back in that very day: the '80s.

The VOLUME days!
  Tue. 12/20/16 12:48pm Mark Williams:

this Anemic Boyfriends cut is a bit different though, since you didn't hear US bands using a reggae rhythm as much as British DIY acts. Great track, Tony.
Avatar Tue. 12/20/16 12:52pm Tony Coulter:

The Anemic Boyfriends were from Alaska, of all places.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 12/20/16 12:56pm Passaic River Blues:

That makes them even better. Going to dig into those guys.
Avatar Tue. 12/20/16 12:58pm Tony Coulter:

As far as I know, they only released two singles. Don't like the other single as much.
Avatar Tue. 12/20/16 1:01pm Tony Coulter:

They use a toy instrument I had as a kid. I "think" it was called the pixaphone (as opposed to the pixiephone), but I could be totally misremembering that.
Avatar Tue. 12/20/16 1:04pm Tony Coulter:

Oops -- very belated greetings to Webhamster Henry!

I somehow have never encountered that Pierre Henry.
Avatar Tue. 12/20/16 1:14pm Tony Coulter:

It's a great one. Has been booted, so it's available.
  Tue. 12/20/16 1:17pm Dean:

Kommunity FK! Heard them live at Venice's Beyond Baroque a l-o-n-g time ago.
Avatar Tue. 12/20/16 1:18pm Tony Coulter:

They're about as goth-y / deathrock-y as I'll ever get (probably!).
Avatar Tue. 12/20/16 1:19pm Tony Coulter:

  Tue. 12/20/16 1:20pm Dean:

The first album less so, as it appeared on the cusp of a goth scene led primarily by Christian Death. Still have the album.
Avatar Tue. 12/20/16 1:22pm Tony Coulter:

Haven't heard that one....

Avatar Tue. 12/20/16 1:53pm Tony Coulter:

The first album is really solid.
Avatar Tue. 12/20/16 1:55pm Tony Coulter:

... as opposed to liquid.

More likely a gas!

  Tue. 12/20/16 2:01pm Dean:

The Colleagues and now The Antlers are names that remind me of the silly days of inventing ad hoc bands to play single performances, a.k.a. insta-bands. We had Sweet Puddin'heads, Goddamn Tractor, Arbor Day (lasted a few gigs), Hula (formed to bid farewell to a friend taking a long trip to Alaska), Shit from Shinola (faux-country)...
Avatar Tue. 12/20/16 2:03pm Tony Coulter:

The Antlers, though, are Forever.

Avatar 🎃 Tue. 12/20/16 2:28pm βrian:

@Dean: There was an Ann Arbor band that kind of did that. They were the Watusis, but they had a different name modifier for each gig, e.g., The Buck-Naked Watusis.
Avatar Tue. 12/20/16 2:32pm Tony Coulter:

That Donna Summer track is kinda disco via Kraftwerk, of course....
  Tue. 12/20/16 2:33pm Dean:

We weren't so much "a band" as a bunch of bored 'teens too cool (i.e., chickenshit) to rebel. My musical talent is microscopic, but my friends actually do have skill. They were usually forgiving of my shortcomings.

Donna Summer was Moroder, of course...right?
Avatar Tue. 12/20/16 2:34pm Tony Coulter:

Yep, Moroder.
  Tue. 12/20/16 2:35pm Dean:

Right around the time Einzelganger was released, also on (an imprint of) Casablanca Records.
