Visible here! Good afternoon, Tony and all.

Hey there, Mayuko!!

Hi Tony! Nothing says Valentine's day like K7s. Well, maybe there's something more romantic.
Avatar Tue. 2/14/17 12:09pm Tony Coulter:

Heya, Henry! Well, today's graveyard photo is kinda romantic -- for goths, anyway.
Avatar Tue. 2/14/17 12:10pm Tony Coulter:

And, of course, the song that just finished is perfect for Valentine's Day.
Avatar Tue. 2/14/17 12:12pm Tony Coulter:

By the by, the cassette on now is the red one on the left.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/14/17 12:20pm Carmichael:

Heya Tony and listeners.

Ahoy, Carmichael!

hi tony, hello coulter-tines!

Hola, JtotheK, you JtotheK-er!
Avatar Tue. 2/14/17 12:25pm Tony Coulter:

There's a definite kinship between the Tom & Marty Band and the German Shepherds, no?
  Tue. 2/14/17 12:26pm Mark in Kingston:

Oh man that stigmata song was great!
Avatar Tue. 2/14/17 12:27pm Tony Coulter:

Hey Mark! Glad you approve!
Avatar Tue. 2/14/17 12:28pm Tony Coulter:

I'm talking about these German Shepherds, of course: www.discogs.com...
Avatar Tue. 2/14/17 12:39pm Tony Coulter:

A funny thing about the (original) cassette-underground scene: It died not long after cassettes became much better, sound-quality wise. Kind of bad timing.
Avatar Tue. 2/14/17 12:41pm Tony Coulter:

"Original" as in late-'70s to early '90s.
  Tue. 2/14/17 12:41pm Dean:

Was in a store yesterday that sold Valentine's Day greeting cards with found mix tapes affixed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/14/17 12:42pm northguineahills:

I believe I've only heard the Tom & Marty Band via Tony. All good stuff!
Avatar Tue. 2/14/17 12:42pm Tony Coulter:

Hey, Dean! Wot an idear!
Avatar Tue. 2/14/17 12:44pm Tony Coulter:

Hey hey, NGH! Yep, the Tom & Marty Band are great. As mentioned, they are connected to some other fine bands, such as Famous Actors from Out of Town and Idio Savant.

Sorry for the chaos! My keyboard froze up on me for a bit. 'Tis back to normal now.
  Tue. 2/14/17 1:06pm Dean:

Not a little Deutsch Amerikanische Freundschaft escaping from that last tune.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/14/17 1:06pm listener james from westwood:

In since the git-go via the magic of the iPhone app, but happy to be hearing it on the big speakers back home!
Avatar Tue. 2/14/17 1:07pm Tony Coulter:

Hey ho, James! Crank those speakers!
Avatar Tue. 2/14/17 1:14pm Tony Coulter:

Paul Rudolph (on now) was in ... the Pink Fairies!
Avatar Tue. 2/14/17 1:16pm Tony Coulter:

... and ... Del Dettmar of Hawkwind is on the flipside of the tape.

Recently picked up a great live PF record: http://mlplive.com/mlplive013003.jpg
Avatar Tue. 2/14/17 1:19pm Tony Coulter:

For a moment I thought you meant Peter Frampton!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/14/17 1:20pm Scraps:

Is anybody having no listening? It's weird
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/14/17 1:20pm Cecile:

hola!
Avatar Tue. 2/14/17 1:21pm Tony Coulter:

Hi, Scraps. I'm not aware of any current technical difficulties (just you wait, though).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/14/17 1:21pm Scraps:

Whoop! Never mind! Here we going now
Avatar Tue. 2/14/17 1:21pm Tony Coulter:

Hey hey hey, Cecile!
  Tue. 2/14/17 1:21pm Dean:

Frampton's live album sold only slightly better than the Fairies'.
Avatar Tue. 2/14/17 1:24pm Tony Coulter:

"The Pink Fairies Cum Alive"
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/14/17 1:26pm doctorjazz:

This Paul Rudolph/Gerald Toon piece is very enjoyable.
Avatar Tue. 2/14/17 1:27pm Tony Coulter:

Glad you like it! I have a cassette by Gerald Toon and Del Dettmar (of Hawkwind), which I will air on Tape Hiss eventually.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/14/17 1:29pm listener james from westwood:

This Nelson track is a delight.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/14/17 1:30pm Scraps:

It souds very like Can
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/14/17 1:30pm Scraps:

The last track
Avatar Tue. 2/14/17 1:32pm Tony Coulter:

Glen Nelson was in a bunch of Canadian new wave bands -- none of which I've heard -- such as Dance Speak, Images in Vogue, Mobile Clones....
Avatar Tue. 2/14/17 1:33pm Tony Coulter:

More to explore....
  Tue. 2/14/17 1:35pm Dean:

Would have felt at home in Vivabeat.
Avatar Tue. 2/14/17 1:39pm Tony Coulter:

I highly recommend the Melodic Energy Commission (on now) -- they have some really stellar releases: www.discogs.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/14/17 1:47pm Webhamster Henry:

This show is like flipping the pages of OPtion zine.
Avatar Tue. 2/14/17 1:49pm Tony Coulter:

It also makes me want to dig up the issue of C.L.E.M. I have lying around here somewhere.
Avatar Tue. 2/14/17 1:51pm Tony Coulter:

It's funny how almost no Canadian new wave–type music reached us here in the '80s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/14/17 1:54pm Carmichael:

I don't know how I found Pretty Green, a new wave/celtic/Americana band from Toronto. Ed Blocki was their leader in the 80s, and that's all I know.
Avatar Tue. 2/14/17 1:54pm Tony Coulter:

AHA! I just found my CLEM! It was in a bookshelf right behind me.
Avatar Tue. 2/14/17 1:55pm Tony Coulter:

It's the April 1986 edition.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/14/17 1:57pm Scraps:

Martha and the Muffins, Jane Siberry... not much. Weird.
Avatar Tue. 2/14/17 2:05pm Tony Coulter:

Paul Dolden (on now) has a bunch of really great and very unique electroacoustic releases: www.discogs.com...

He's gotten a fair amount of airplay on FMU over the years...
Avatar Tue. 2/14/17 2:08pm Tony Coulter:

Here's a blogpost about C.L.E.M.: smallprintpress.blogspot.com...
Avatar Tue. 2/14/17 2:14pm Tony Coulter:

By the way, blackhumour (on now) is too cool for initial caps.
Avatar Tue. 2/14/17 2:21pm Tony Coulter:

Surely, this Tunnel Canary track is perfect Valentine's Day music?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/14/17 2:22pm listener james from westwood:

Works on this side!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/14/17 2:24pm northguineahills:

Tunnel Canary sounds like it could be something contemporary on Hospital Productions Recs.
Avatar Tue. 2/14/17 2:25pm Tony Coulter:

Agreed!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/14/17 2:25pm Stanley:

Er, something like "Darling I didn't get you a card but I'll play this Tunnel Canary track for you instead"
Yep, that should do it.
Avatar Tue. 2/14/17 2:26pm Tony Coulter:

Exactly! (Hey, Stanley!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/14/17 2:26pm Stanley:

Hey, Toe-Knee
Avatar Tue. 2/14/17 2:34pm Tony Coulter:

Not just the sound quality of the tape itself, but some of the electronics they use make me pretty sure this Tragtenberg & Sukorski demo is from the '90s. But who knows....
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/14/17 2:34pm Stanley:

Done it again. Commenting on one stream, listening on another. What a dork!
Avatar Tue. 2/14/17 2:37pm Tony Coulter:

Next time, try listening to both streams at the same time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/14/17 2:38pm northguineahills:

Well, we had a good run in '82, and then Tony had to go ruin it..
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/14/17 2:39pm northguineahills:

Do you have an idea where this duo is from?
Avatar Tue. 2/14/17 2:39pm Tony Coulter:

Brazil
Avatar Tue. 2/14/17 2:39pm Tony Coulter:

(despite their names!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/14/17 2:48pm northguineahills:

I see an official release (albeit a bootleg) from 1997, entitled, " São Paulo, a Symphonia da Metrópole" rateyourmusic.com...

Could be the same piece based on the titles, or maybe this is just a tidbit from the larger piece?
Avatar Tue. 2/14/17 2:51pm Tony Coulter:

Could be related -- tho I don't see the same track titles.
Avatar Tue. 2/14/17 2:54pm Tony Coulter:

I recently ended up with a chunk of Hildegard Westerkamp's cassette collection -- this demo was in there. Tragtenberg & Sukorski were new to me, which is why I don't know much about this thing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/14/17 2:56pm listener james from westwood:

Thanks, Tony!
Avatar Tue. 2/14/17 2:57pm Tony Coulter:

Thanks, everyone! See you next week!
