From L.A. to Leipzig, this Drummertrain is making all local stops.

Yo. Harry J. Ten years old in 1969 and at the fun fair where I sees real skinheads getting down to The Liquidator.
The memory has never left me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/30/17 4:11pm listener james from westwood:

Tired. Worked super-long yesterday, slept super-long last night, now hitting the wall. Will push through!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/30/17 4:13pm David D:

I will do my best not to put you to sleep, James.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/30/17 4:13pm David D:

Doug - lots of stops to come - and probably a few starts too...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/30/17 4:15pm David D:

What a memory, Stanley - do tell more!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/30/17 4:16pm Brian in UK:

Hello David and fellow advert gazers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/30/17 4:24pm doctorjazz:

Hey David, ready for Purple! (any Purple People Eaters around?)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/30/17 4:26pm David D:

Greetings Brian and Doctorjazz! Purple punch for everyone...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/30/17 4:28pm Stanley:

My neighbours took me to the funfair when we lived in South London. My first memory of youth culture was Ska music, Jamaicans and scary looking skinheads dancing like they were posessed. I was enthralled. Bought the Liquidator with my pocket money the next day and we didn't even have a record player!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/30/17 4:30pm Parq:

Deep in the blue off the night where you are, I imagine. Cloudy and dismal here in NYC, see? Just drizzle, no real storm, at least not today.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/30/17 4:31pm David D:

Stanley: So that was your first record, I suppose - an important moment...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/30/17 4:31pm Stanley:

Lovely sunset up here, Parq.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/30/17 4:32pm David D:

Hello Parq - we had sun until the darkness rolled in. Sun was the plan, but alas.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/30/17 4:43pm Stanley:

David, actually, I was amassing a small stash of singles at the time to put pressure on my parents to get me a record player and eventually I got a second hand Dansette. It was frowned upon as pretty degenerate. (And they were right!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/30/17 4:44pm doctorjazz:

The Talawine was intense, exciting track!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/30/17 4:45pm Webhamster Henry:

Your getting to MOOG INDIGO, right?

Hell, I'm keeping OUDIST in the back of my head for possible Scrabble deployment.

OUDIST or STUDIO, I suppose. Good band name, Oudist Studio.

O U, D!
Avatar Tue. 5/30/17 4:57pm still b/p:

To paraphrase Joe Gould: In the winter I'm a Buddhist. In the summer, I'm an oudist."
By weird automatic phrase-association grazing, the playlist image caption "Leipzig, around the corner," made me think a second later: Lubitsch, The Shop Around The Corner.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/30/17 5:02pm David D:

Love the associations, still b/p. The photo is literally just around the corner here, in a neighborhood with all sorts of architectural mixes and juxtapositions.
Avatar Tue. 5/30/17 5:06pm still b/p:

Folks go floating, punting, houseboating, what have you, in the canal? Or is it not so recreationally friendly...?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/30/17 5:09pm David D:

We've got loads of waterways here for boats and the like - that canal is a too small and goes underground right at the corner here.
Avatar Tue. 5/30/17 5:09pm geezerette:

Funny ! :D

Well, after a while, we got on the subject of love... naturally on a very cultural level.

What else can you do in a letter?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/30/17 5:13pm Parq:

For those of you in New York, that movie is at Film Forum next month.
Avatar Tue. 5/30/17 5:18pm still b/p:

It has a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, so I started...started...looking at what else is on that 100% list...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/30/17 5:23pm doctorjazz:

This Purple Gazelle is based on an Ellington tune (it's on Ellington/Coltrane album), the title of which escapes me right now...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/30/17 5:24pm doctorjazz:

Big Nick, I think...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/30/17 5:24pm David D:

It is indeed, doctorjazz! Same name in fact.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/30/17 5:25pm doctorjazz:

No I take it back, it's My Little Brown Book.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/30/17 5:27pm David D:

Could there be another similar one?

taking a swig from the purple canteen.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/30/17 5:31pm doctorjazz:

Had to check it out, was making me Crazy, went to YouTube, the track on that album (Ellington/Coltrane), is actually Angelica (though it could be named differently elsewhere, that's how I know it). I can sleep now...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/30/17 5:31pm David D:

Interestingly, My Little Brown Book and Purple Gazelle are both from 1963.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/30/17 5:32pm David D:

More purple cocktails for all...
Avatar Tue. 5/30/17 5:33pm still b/p:

It's a Prince tribute set.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/30/17 5:39pm Parq:

That Andrey Zueff track brings to mind my favorite drug movie, "The Ten Commandments". It's about a wild cat with long hair and a beard who goes on a mountain retreat with someone who's far out and then comes back and gives everyone tablets.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/30/17 5:45pm David D:

Thanks, Parq, is that recent? I've missed a lot of films along the way.
Avatar Tue. 5/30/17 5:46pm geezerette:

Love Shuggie Otis. Fine & mellow. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/30/17 5:49pm David D:

Like the sugar he was named for.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/30/17 5:49pm Parq:

Yeh, this kills. Softly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 5/30/17 5:50pm doctorjazz:

Shuggy Oits, Cool!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/30/17 5:50pm David D:

Or more like a fine, tangy purple wine, perhaps...
Avatar Tue. 5/30/17 5:50pm still b/p:

Is there a jazz version of Flying Purple People Eater?
Avatar Tue. 5/30/17 5:50pm Doug Schulkind:

I like to live in a world that is free from being a world that is free from living with Shuggie Otis.
  Tue. 5/30/17 5:51pm hilmar:

this kind of radio makes me feel alsmost as lila, as the sky above cospudener see at around 5pm today... absolutely non-violett...cheers...though i cant think of much german-language purple in songs...very nice!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/30/17 5:53pm David D:

Hey, Hilmar! Were you caught in it too? And you're right, a total lack of Lila here!
Avatar Tue. 5/30/17 5:55pm geezerette:

pretty sweet catastrophe. Happen to be looking at Saul Steinberg cats.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/30/17 5:55pm David D:

nice song! (cinema 90 in ultra violet)..
and the purple gorilla too .(i remembered one favourite german language song in lila: les reines prochaines - das violette tier....(but thats from switzerland))
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/30/17 6:30pm Parq:

Tony Coulter did a premium years ago called something like Nobbly New Wave, and that Purple Gorilla would have been right at home on that comp.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/30/17 6:35pm David D:

Thanks, hilmar - glad you liked them. I'll hunt down das Tier later...
Avatar Tue. 5/30/17 6:36pm Doug Schulkind:

In college, I was in a rock band called Fishnet Ethics. (A band that later became The Del Fuegos once opened for us at a dorm party.) One of our "hits" was a song called "She's so Purple."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/30/17 6:38pm David D:

Doug - do you have a recording?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/30/17 6:38pm David D:

Yes, wave of new in mid-sweep, Parq.
Avatar Tue. 5/30/17 6:40pm Doug Schulkind:

I have a cassette somewhere. Alas, but no cassette player anymore. Another song of ours, "Lick a Knife," was included on WFMU's 1989 marathon premium: www.moorestevie.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/30/17 6:46pm David D:

Interesting stuff! Is there a place to download it - or do we need to make a very retroactive pledge?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/30/17 6:48pm David D:

And have there been other compilations of the like?
Avatar Tue. 5/30/17 6:48pm Doug Schulkind:

I can guarantee that FMU has 0 copies of that puppy. (Actually, it probably has a copy in the library.) I have no copy myself.
Avatar Tue. 5/30/17 6:53pm geezerette:

Great version of BB !
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/30/17 6:53pm David D:

Thanks everyone for listening and commenting. Stay tuned for the Noise! wfmu.org...
Avatar Tue. 5/30/17 6:53pm Doug Schulkind:

WFMU had a string or marathon premiums featuring music made by staff members. We once put out vinyl record celebrating the 100th anniversary of Edison's invention of the phonograph. The songs were all dedicated to or inspired by Thomas Alva Edison. It was called "Edisongs."
