Super Geezerette!
Avatar Wed. 8/23/17 7:18pm still b/p:

Ghosts can only say "moshi" once, so you say moshi-moshi on the phone to prove you're not a ghost. Maybe that's also why one would have Pamyu Pamyu bonbon close to a moshimoshi in one's musical ID/listing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/23/17 7:19pm steve:

i love the jpop stuff. there's an i assume newish thing which ive fallen into on Soundcloud of what appear to be chopped up insane remixes of jpop or kpop, though i have yet to figure out what its called or if its more than just random bedroom producers.
Avatar Wed. 8/23/17 7:19pm Gary:

Super b/p! ... Steve, OMG, I need a link or two
Avatar    Wed. 8/23/17 7:25pm hyde:

tonight i'm reading about the Japanese overrunning the Brits in Malaysia and Singapore in the early forties which again seems sort of appropriate
Avatar Wed. 8/23/17 7:26pm Gary:

You know, Hyde, that was directly responsible for India's greatest movie dancer, Helen
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/23/17 7:29pm steve:

Gary ill email you some links... id be curious if you have any ideas... what i think it is is lately there's a lot of bedroom type laptop producers doing crazy breakcore ish remixes of jpop and just a few of them are really awesome
Avatar Wed. 8/23/17 7:30pm Gary:

Sounds about right, but would super love to take a listen
Avatar    Wed. 8/23/17 7:30pm hyde:

@Gary yep. i left out Burma, but that figures prominently in this book too. i never really knew Aung San Suu Kyi"s father was a big player back then.
Avatar Wed. 8/23/17 7:31pm Gary:

[thumbs up icon]
Avatar Wed. 8/23/17 7:40pm geezerette:

Sounds like based on "Life During Wartime". Also Jim Morrison. Great!
Avatar Wed. 8/23/17 7:41pm Gary:

I was totally feeling the Jim Morrison, G!

Heh, Super Parq!
  Wed. 8/23/17 7:54pm Marie:

Great show, Gary! As per usual. Thanks!
Avatar Wed. 8/23/17 7:55pm geezerette:

The noir-ishness of "Pussycat" reminded me of "The Face of Another", which is an absolutely terrifying Japanese horror film from the sixties. It's got a beatnik cafe sort of scene in it. Strongly recommend.
Avatar Wed. 8/23/17 7:56pm Gary:

Super Marie!
Avatar Wed. 8/23/17 7:57pm Gary:

@Geezerette, I don't know "The Face of Another" ... gotta track it down
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/23/17 7:58pm Parq:

Speaking of movies, remember the Japanese boy in Mystery Train? If he had spent all of his free time on the set hanging out with Screamin' Jay Hawkins, he might have ended up sounding like Chitts.
Avatar    Wed. 8/23/17 7:59pm hyde:

@geezerette yes! Teshigahara Hiroshi. also love Woman in the Dunes.
Avatar Wed. 8/23/17 8:00pm Gary:

Ha, yes, I do remember -- saw that long ago, but only once
Avatar Wed. 8/23/17 8:05pm geezerette:

Hyde, yes! Also scary as hell! Post war, 'nuff said.

Gary, it couldn't be more Japanese, and I think it's b & w.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/23/17 8:08pm Parq:

Hah. Mystery Train is Criterion too. I just bought it at a Criterion sale for half off, $20. By contrast, when Stranger Than Paradise first came out on VHS, it was $90.
Avatar Wed. 8/23/17 8:09pm Gary:

Whaaa ...? Seriously? Ninety bucks for a VHS tape?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/23/17 8:12pm Parq:

Gary, when the medium was new and rental stores were a big thing, the studios charged big bucks for a new releases on the theory that every video store would have to buy one.
Avatar    Wed. 8/23/17 8:18pm hyde:

basically, some jerkhole has been stumping for Brast Burn for weeks?
Avatar    Wed. 8/23/17 8:18pm hyde:

Ha ha .... now, now. I'm sure whoever he is, he means well.

Plus ... it's Brast Burn

oh, i *love* this tune
Avatar Wed. 8/23/17 9:06pm Gary:

When I first heard this album, Hyde? Words can't explain
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/23/17 9:07pm coelacanth∅:

geezerette, i hate to quote Andy Breckman, but there's something in that statement for everyone!
Avatar Wed. 8/23/17 9:07pm geezerette:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/23/17 9:09pm coelacanth∅:

seriously though what'd you think of the pollock exhibit?
...what do you think of pollock in general?
Avatar Wed. 8/23/17 9:12pm geezerette:

Love Pollock.

& LOVE this song!
Avatar    Wed. 8/23/17 9:13pm hyde:

pollock is a sustainable fish with a nice mild flavor!
Avatar Wed. 8/23/17 9:15pm geezerette:

Love his freedom.

And his flavor! Hyde.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/23/17 9:15pm coelacanth∅:

pollock is often what they use in fish sticks, no?
Avatar Wed. 8/23/17 9:16pm Gary:

AND POLLOCK PAINTED USING A STICK. ......... coincidence?
Avatar Wed. 8/23/17 9:17pm geezerette:

HA! :D
Avatar    Wed. 8/23/17 9:17pm hyde:

@coel yep. and fake crab is mostly pollock
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/23/17 9:18pm coelacanth∅:

pollock is our friend.
Avatar Wed. 8/23/17 9:19pm geezerette:

And everything else is tilapia.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/23/17 9:20pm coelacanth∅:

hey! what about me?! i'm no damn tilapia!
Avatar Wed. 8/23/17 9:21pm Gary:

You can't tilapia everything else with a single brush like that!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/23/17 9:24pm coelacanth∅:

there's a badass (but delicious) gang of steelhead trout that might not take kindly to being called tilapia!
Avatar Wed. 8/23/17 9:24pm geezerette:

No, you're not Coel, and you will live forever!

Gary!...speechless... :D
Avatar Wed. 8/23/17 9:26pm geezerette:

My husband makes gravlax out of steelhead. Tastes even better than salmon!
Avatar Wed. 8/23/17 9:27pm Gary:

Wait, how do you make gravlax?
Avatar    Wed. 8/23/17 9:27pm hyde:

thanks for playing one of my fave out there records of all time!
Avatar Wed. 8/23/17 9:28pm Gary:

Speaking of which, Hyde: If anyone wants to shoot me an email letting me know which of their favorite Japanese artist(s) I haven't yet covered in the first four parts of this series, please let me know and I'll try to squeeze in somehow next week!
Avatar    Wed. 8/23/17 9:29pm hyde:

Morita Doji! Morita Doji!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/23/17 9:29pm coelacanth∅:

...steelhead and salmon are my 2 favorites to eat at home; when i have sushi, it's yellowtail and white tuna.
(i clearly like the fatty ones)
Avatar Wed. 8/23/17 9:30pm Gary:

TESTIFY! with Larry Grogan begins in half an hour here: wfmu.org...
Avatar Wed. 8/23/17 9:30pm geezerette:

Gary, it's cured...hmm, maybe you try this, in salt, sugar and gin or vodka.
Avatar Wed. 8/23/17 9:31pm Gary:

I am embarrassed to admit I need to look up Morita Doji ... but will do
Avatar    Wed. 8/23/17 9:31pm hyde:

i haven't made gravlax for years, but mostly i think you just combine salt, sugar, junper and gin with salmon and let it sit
Avatar Wed. 8/23/17 9:33pm Gary:

Mmm, now I'm hungry for gravlax
Avatar    Wed. 8/23/17 9:33pm hyde:

@Gary haha even more embarrassing might be that i once sent you three Morita Doji records. but maybe you didn't like them! in which case, ignore ;)
Avatar Wed. 8/23/17 9:35pm Gary:

Shoot, how did you send them? It is unlikely I didn't like them; more likely is constant overwhelm and never got the chance to listen
Avatar Wed. 8/23/17 9:36pm Gary:

NEVER MIND I JUST FOUND THEM ... super psyched to listen (finally)! And to thank you for sending
Avatar Wed. 8/23/17 9:38pm Gary:

If you think that's bad, though; one of my best friends once gave me a CD he burned of his favorite Cambodian rock back in 2000, and it took me FIVE OR SIX YEARS to listen to it. It was the first Cambodian rock outside of the Sublime Frequencies releases I'd heard and it blew me away (duh)
Avatar    Wed. 8/23/17 9:40pm hyde:

heh, cool! i think the first two are great records. they're really dour--as i understand it, Morita Doji only started singing after a friend of hers committed suicide. And then she put out a few records and then said she would never perform again, and hasn't
Avatar Wed. 8/23/17 9:42pm Gary:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/23/17 9:43pm coelacanth∅:

...i'm so behind on hearing these shows in their entirety that i don't know what you've played and haven't. maybe this weekend i can blast them when i get home.
...and maybe i'll learn how to make gravlax!
Avatar    Wed. 8/23/17 9:44pm hyde:

make japanese gravlax
Avatar    Wed. 8/23/17 9:47pm hyde:

the highest compliment that i can pay that Brast Burn record is that it's basically unclassifiable
Avatar Wed. 8/23/17 9:49pm geezerette:

Cure in fridge with another pan on top,weighted, and cure yourself with what's left in the bottle!
Avatar    Wed. 8/23/17 9:49pm hyde:

@g haha

I've under-baked for tonight's show, so we'll be hearing a bonus track right after this one
