Nice, haven't heard this Los Lobos album in a while.
Ready to Park here for a bit, hi!
Avatar Thu. 5/25/17 12:04pm glenn:

and will you be playing slayer today, miss underwater?
Avatar Thu. 5/25/17 12:05pm glenn:

los lobos is easily the loudest concert i have ever attended, oddly enough.
Avatar Thu. 5/25/17 12:05pm βrian:

Slayer? What about Möist?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/25/17 12:06pm Meghan:

Nope.... sorry.... no metal today....
Avatar    Thu. 5/25/17 12:07pm KP:

Just heard Nick Lowe somewhere elsewhere. We're halfway there
Avatar Thu. 5/25/17 12:07pm βrian:

I heard that about Wilco. So loud that folks had to get out. Is it the case that touring bands sometimes hire local sound board people?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/25/17 12:08pm doctorjazz:

I went to see Wilco last year in Brooklyn, didn't see louder than a rock concert ought to be from my recollection (not that it was QUIET...)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/25/17 12:09pm doctorjazz:

(the actually did end on a quiet, acoustic set, but that's not the same).
Avatar Thu. 5/25/17 12:09pm βrian:

Yeah, I was surprised to hear that report from friends.
Avatar Thu. 5/25/17 12:10pm still b/p:

The friendly underwater dudes on your playlist archive page have me recalling another friendly (we hope) underwater dude just seen above-water at a local kite-fest last weekend.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/25/17 12:12pm Meghan:

Awwww, i like the octopus kite! That's great!
Avatar Thu. 5/25/17 12:15pm Hugo (NL):

Go Megan on Vinyl!!!

Hiya, Meghan, and Underwater denizens.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/25/17 12:15pm Meghan:

Hey there Hugo and Sem!!! Yep, vinyl central over here!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/25/17 12:17pm Parq:

Still b/p, that is a wonderful pic -- thanks!
Avatar Thu. 5/25/17 12:19pm still b/p:

I love that some maker said, "OK, so... a kite. I think I'll make a.....GIANT OCTOPUS!"
Avatar Thu. 5/25/17 12:24pm glenn:

inconsistent temperature is going to be a thing this summer.
Avatar Thu. 5/25/17 12:25pm still b/p:

Stranded LP not one of my Roxy favorites, but that's a good track I haven't heard in forever.
Avatar Thu. 5/25/17 12:25pm glenn:

jesus, that's a big ass kite.
Avatar Thu. 5/25/17 12:27pm glenn:

jerry hall as mermaid, if memory serves.

Greetings Meghan @Vinyl Central and Parketeers!
  Thu. 5/25/17 12:30pm P-90:

Haven't heard this Roxy in years, nice to be reacquainted
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/25/17 12:32pm Meghan:

Hey there P-90!
Avatar Thu. 5/25/17 12:33pm still b/p:

Jerry Hall on Sirens cover. Marilyn Cole on Stranded. That's not in my head trivia vault....I had to look because I never can keep all the Roxy cover model whichwhatchamawho straight.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/25/17 12:34pm Meghan:

Who were the 2 on the cover throwing spears?
Avatar Thu. 5/25/17 12:38pm still b/p:

Flesh and Blood...."The front cover models are Aimee Stephenson (at the front) and Shelley Mann; the model on the back cover is Roslyn Bolton (her modelling name was Ashley)."
Avatar    Thu. 5/25/17 12:38pm KP:

Marie Hoy sounds great, as do Friends
Avatar Thu. 5/25/17 12:39pm glenn:

huh. they should have just used aimee mann. save them the cost of one model.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/25/17 12:41pm doctorjazz:

Sounding good over my radio, vinyl sounding good? Something to it, even on line.
Avatar Thu. 5/25/17 12:41pm glenn:

the models by cover. www.udiscovermusic.com...

"Hush, hush, keep heads down now, javelins carry..."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/25/17 12:42pm Meghan:

All of the Roxy Music models seem to have this similar quality....
Avatar Thu. 5/25/17 12:43pm glenn:

leggy blondes?
Avatar Thu. 5/25/17 12:44pm still b/p:

Are ya winking about the transvestite rumors, or the Ferry actual hook-up history?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/25/17 12:46pm Meghan:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/25/17 12:56pm Parq:

That cover-music piece has one of my new favorite items of understatement, referring to Kate Muller's marriage to "Chris Jagger, whose brother has fronted a popular beat combo since the 60s."
Avatar Thu. 5/25/17 12:59pm glenn:

a sordid past?
Avatar Thu. 5/25/17 1:01pm The Oscar:

A bunch of my friends had Dave Herlihy from O Positive as a professor at Northeastern. Met him a few times-- really nice guy!
Avatar Thu. 5/25/17 1:01pm glenn:

not that it's any of my beeswax.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/25/17 1:02pm Meghan:

Aren't all teenager pasts sordid?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/25/17 1:02pm Meghan:

Woah! What did he teach?
Avatar Thu. 5/25/17 1:04pm The Oscar:

Audio recording, if I recall correctly. A friend once enlisted me to record a Daniel Johnston cover for one of his classes, and I'm told he was impressed!
Avatar Thu. 5/25/17 1:04pm The Oscar:

Also the record store I used to work at in Cambridge had a ton of sealed O Positive LPs-- if you ever find yourself up here, I'd almost guarantee they still have some.
Avatar Thu. 5/25/17 1:05pm glenn:

i grew up on a farm a million miles from anywhere. my past didn't really become sordid until i finished high school and got a car. still a teenager, but only barely.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/25/17 1:07pm Meghan:

Oh what record store.... I was just up there for Mom's day.... though didn't get into the city. I had found a bunch of records in a store on the border of Allston, near the Paradise....
Avatar Thu. 5/25/17 1:09pm The Oscar:

I was at Planet Records in Harvard Square (formerly of Kendall) for many years. Sounds like you were at In Your Ear-- great store!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/25/17 1:10pm Meghan:

It's been so long, I forgot all the names.... I used to always hit Mystery Train... that was my favorite
Avatar Thu. 5/25/17 1:13pm The Oscar:

Alas, Mystery Train Boston is gone; they still have stores in Amherst and Gloucester, though I don't think they're actually affiliated with each other anymore. I grew up in central MA, so the Amherst store was the hub of my musical education.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/25/17 1:16pm Meghan:

I was curious if the one in Gloucester still existed. The singer from Gigalo Aunts worked at the Newbury St. location
Avatar Thu. 5/25/17 1:19pm The Oscar:

They moved down the road a few years back, and the new space is actually ENORMOUS. It's really funny how many Boston music legends still work the stores-- Jeff Connolly from the Lyres and Peter Prescott from Mission of Burma worked at Looney Tunes right up until they closed. I think Barrence Whitfield might still work at the Record Exchange in Salem.
Avatar Thu. 5/25/17 1:21pm Doug Schulkind:

Salem 66 once crashed at my friend Dan's parents' house in Athens, GA. Hi Meghan!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/25/17 1:22pm Meghan:

Hey there Doug! I'm now itching to go record shopping....
Avatar Thu. 5/25/17 1:24pm Doug Schulkind:

The famous Jerry's Records is two blocks from my house. Just sayin'.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/25/17 1:24pm Meghan:

Road trips!
Avatar Thu. 5/25/17 1:27pm The Oscar:

Honestly, I'd recommend just about any of the older shops in the Boston area-- a lot of this stuff is both plentiful and cheap up here!
Avatar Thu. 5/25/17 1:28pm Sean from Bridgeport:

Jerry's is a sight to behold!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/25/17 1:29pm Uncle Michael:

My boys!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/25/17 1:33pm Parq:

Never got to see Scruffy, sad to say (Moons of Jupiter is an all time favorite of mine), but was lucky enough to see the Del Fs twice. Terrific live band.
Avatar Thu. 5/25/17 1:36pm The Oscar:

@Parq Scruffy the Cat was scheduled to play the TT the Bear's anniversary show a few years back, but cancelled at the last minute (for reasons that would soon become sadly obvious). Great show anyway, though.
Avatar Thu. 5/25/17 1:37pm βrian:

On felafel and one taco later, glad to be back beneath the waves.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/25/17 1:38pm Meghan:

Feeling human with food in belly

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/25/17 1:43pm Meghan:

speaking of food..... Ike! I want that food!
Avatar Thu. 5/25/17 1:44pm βrian:

I just read an article that mentioned the difficulty of eating while underwater. These were cave divers who covered 7 miles in 20 hours.

Avatar Thu. 5/25/17 1:56pm Dominick:

Avatar Thu. 5/25/17 2:00pm still b/p:

Boston record store talk made me think of Michael Fremer's bits and parodies for record store ads on WBCN in the 70s. Now I learn he went on to become a noted audiophile writer and evangelist for vinyl, among other things. One article about him starts: "This is Michael Fremer. He's listening to "Avalon" by Roxy Music on his $350,000 stereo system."

See ya. Thanks.
