Flash Strap's avatar View Flash Strap's profile Options

This is where all of culture and all of time are collapsed into one seductive portal and viewed through the panoramic lens of the exotic. Come and embark on an armchair-travel virtual-voyage to the heart of timeless darkness and beyond; embrace the numinous monolith of the exotic immensity. Let us find that place where hybridization meets its destiny as pure fantasy. Let us become observers observing those others who are ourselves. You wear your mask and I'll wear mine.

Back to the library well, I hope you've all brought your library cards
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 7/6/17 6:38pm doctorjazz:

Looks like an interesting set of albums...
Avatar Thu. 7/6/17 6:50pm Flash Strap:

Hi Doc and welcome

they are pretty interesting
Avatar Thu. 7/6/17 7:02pm Flash Strap:

more Decerf in the works for this evening
Avatar Thu. 7/6/17 7:03pm Flash Strap:

obviously, tonight I'll mostly play Auvidis LPs, but there's an overlap with Chicago 2000 that I'll explain in a bit, so we'll hear a little Chicago 2000 stuff in this first set
Avatar Thu. 7/6/17 7:06pm Flash Strap:

LP art: img.discogs.com...
Avatar Thu. 7/6/17 7:08pm northguineahills:

I always found it frustratingly hard to find many library records, and only half of the ones I found were actually any good.
Avatar Thu. 7/6/17 7:08pm Flash Strap:

pretty mondo art on this one as well: img.discogs.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 7/6/17 7:11pm doctorjazz:

Decerf is another name that rings NO bells with me (I say that a lot on this particular chat board, hmmm)
Avatar Thu. 7/6/17 7:11pm Flash Strap:

Hi NGH! even my favorite library records usually aren't "good" as albums. it's a real genre for mining
Avatar Thu. 7/6/17 7:12pm Flash Strap:

@doc: I played a bunch of stuff by him last week, which is why i make a special point to mention him tonight
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 7/6/17 7:15pm doctorjazz:

Yup, and that's as much as I've heard of him. Interesting stuff, though...
  Thu. 7/6/17 7:18pm JtotheK:

Hi Flash, hello Explorers! (I'm sitting quietly in the corner obeying the library rules - don't want to get 'shushed'!)
Avatar Thu. 7/6/17 7:18pm Flash Strap:

in the final analysis, i think he's a pretty minor/medium figure even by library standards, but I've always had a love for his stuff, the best of which is just insanely cool
Avatar Thu. 7/6/17 7:20pm Flash Strap:

no shushing in this library, J–K! hiya pal

I flash you very much.
Avatar Thu. 7/6/17 7:43pm Flash Strap:

don't mind if you do, Doug!
Avatar Thu. 7/6/17 7:44pm Flash Strap:

this track is a very rare length for library music
Avatar Thu. 7/6/17 7:52pm Flash Strap:

love this record
Avatar Thu. 7/6/17 8:01pm Flash Strap:

one of my favorite synthi numbers here
  Thu. 7/6/17 8:03pm melinda:

Hello! Ready for more library.
Avatar    Thu. 7/6/17 8:03pm Little Danny:

evenin' Flash and fellow roommates!
Avatar Thu. 7/6/17 8:03pm Flash Strap:

hi Melinda! Hi Danny!
Avatar Thu. 7/6/17 8:05pm Flash Strap:

so, this is one of those that was originally published by Chicago 2000, in 1978. put out again by Auvidis in '79. original cover: img.discogs.com...
Avatar Thu. 7/6/17 8:08pm Flash Strap:

get ready for this next one, it's a doozy
Avatar    Thu. 7/6/17 8:11pm hyde:

btw, i let this go before and you know this stuff way better'n me, but still my conscience compels me to say: J.P. DeCerf? a minor/medium figure? Bah!
Avatar Thu. 7/6/17 8:13pm Flash Strap:

not to denigrate in the slightest! just that, compared to Hawkshaw or something, who has like ten thousand releases, he's not a giant, and that it's entirely possible you could be into aspects of library music in a pretty big way and not know decerf super well
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 7/6/17 8:15pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Hey! I might drink too much Merlot - or these way kewl trax. Or - Both.
Avatar    Thu. 7/6/17 8:18pm hyde:

heh, confession: i mostly just wanted to say bah!, because it's so satisfying.

i find library music like Borges' library, so it's nice to find a cornerstone like DeCerf. building a hierarchy of this stuff seems like a fool's errand. of course it might be that those are the best errands.
Avatar    Thu. 7/6/17 8:23pm Little Danny:

This Open Air stuff is revelatory! REALLY digging it.
Avatar Thu. 7/6/17 8:24pm Flash Strap:

@Hyde: honestly, the big library heads are way beyond me, i am just a grasshopper, i basically have to guess and extrapolate a lot to seem like I know what I'm doing.
Avatar    Thu. 7/6/17 8:25pm quinn:

ah. so glad to be here.
Avatar Thu. 7/6/17 8:26pm Flash Strap:

Hi RevRab! Glad to have you and your merlot on board

I feel the same way, Danny. I actually just got ahold of this LP after only hearing parts of it, so it's still new to me. some Bowie vibes, sort of. with like, Uriah Heep vibes too
Avatar Thu. 7/6/17 8:26pm Flash Strap:

Hi Quinn! extremely glad you are
  Thu. 7/6/17 8:27pm melinda:

My computer is broken and I miss the visuals I usually get with this show. At least I still have Internet access.
Avatar Thu. 7/6/17 8:28pm Flash Strap:

Melinda, I feel your pain and pray for your computer's swift recovery or painless replacement
Avatar Thu. 7/6/17 8:29pm Flash Strap:

god, this is so passionate and human when taken in the library context
Avatar    Thu. 7/6/17 8:29pm hyde:

@melinda what Flash said. computers are the worst.
  Thu. 7/6/17 8:31pm melinda:

Thanks Flash. Actually being without has eliminated some distractions and prompted me to get more stuff done and spend more time outside. The real trick will be to keep that going once I have access again.
Avatar Thu. 7/6/17 8:32pm Flash Strap:

that is the trick indeed. i had some really great weeks without internet this spring and i sort of miss being deprived
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 7/6/17 8:33pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

@hyde: Were you checking Hearty's show previous - or are we referencing Borge's Library in adjacent timeslots independently?...
Avatar Thu. 7/6/17 8:34pm Flash Strap:

"Jumping Squirrel" - there's a great title
Avatar    Thu. 7/6/17 8:36pm hyde:

@RevRab ha, no--did not check that show. references must have concurrently come from the ether.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 7/6/17 8:37pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

: ))
Avatar Thu. 7/6/17 8:38pm Flash Strap:

this is exactly the classic Decerf sound – he uses these little techniques and drum machines all the time
Avatar    Thu. 7/6/17 8:40pm hyde:

this track is great
Avatar Thu. 7/6/17 8:41pm Flash Strap:

i agree
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 7/6/17 8:42pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...@ which point is it not PostProg squareness that yet retains spirit & becomes Avant-PostPunk Electronica...
Avatar Thu. 7/6/17 8:43pm Flash Strap:

the thing with library music is that it's a slave to trends and yet somehow seems to exist in this adjacent universe where they don't apply at all
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 7/6/17 8:45pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- ! ...
Avatar    Thu. 7/6/17 8:45pm quinn:

I'm seeing some great movies in my mind
Avatar    Thu. 7/6/17 8:45pm hyde:

this Michael Maller & Myriam Chadcar is realllly 1979
Avatar Thu. 7/6/17 8:46pm Flash Strap:

@Hyde AND Quinn: me too, and I agree! haha this one is a hoot

next selection will be from L'Universe De La Mer. You can see the Auvidis cover above, but I also wanted to show you the Chicago 200 original cover: img.discogs.com...
Avatar Thu. 7/6/17 8:47pm Flash Strap:

super weird art
Avatar    Thu. 7/6/17 8:49pm quinn:

i love this but i don't get much of a sea vibe.
Avatar Thu. 7/6/17 8:50pm Flash Strap:

I totally agree, alas
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 7/6/17 8:51pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...goes oddly w/ Micah's 'Music of Mind Control' on before Hearty - stuff from same time period...
Avatar Thu. 7/6/17 8:59pm Flash Strap:

this is a really weird one
  Thu. 7/6/17 9:01pm melinda:

This is cool.
  Thu. 7/6/17 9:01pm melinda:

I heard a bit of Walk on the Wild Side for a bit.
Avatar Thu. 7/6/17 9:04pm Flash Strap:

so glad to be playing more from Feret, I love this guy
Avatar Thu. 7/6/17 9:07pm Flash Strap:
