I still think it's crazy that Sabbath played a Catholic High School gym in NJ in 1971. A flyer was on the cover of a Sabbath book, submitted by one of the guys in the Smithereens. Just trying to imaging the look on the faces of the clergy in the school with that young and likely high bunch coming through with the tri-tones.

@Honeybear - I just imagine some student-run entertainment club running the idea of having Sabbath play. Think this was before "Master of Reality" was recorded, so don't think they tried to pass the lyrics of "After Forever" to the nuns for review.

Hello Fabio, I'm not usually working this late on a Thursday (I'm in Scotland) so this my first time listening to your show, but I have to say the Buttholes were just what I needed right there, hits the spot. Thank you sir.
Avatar    Thu. 9/14/17 3:18pm PKNY:

@uuee - I know the Who played at SUNY New Paltz in the 60s, but didn't know they played high schools as well. My dad told me about seeing the Lovin Spoonful at Poughkeepsie High, and seeing a Vanilla Fudge show at a roadside bar that turned into a poolstick-aided bar fight.
Avatar    Thu. 9/14/17 3:20pm PKNY:

@Fox - I only live a few miles from Union Catholic now, so that Sabbath show is of extra-interest to me now.

New Years Eve 1988, it was Dead Milkmen, Cramps, & Surfers with the full overlapping movies & everything. Gibby nearly burned the place down with his hi-hat fireballs. Building full of tripping lunatics; probably favorite night on earth.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/14/17 3:28pm coelacanth∅:

Avatar Thu. 9/14/17 3:30pm The Oscar:

I'm enough of a youngster that I didn't get to see the Buttholes until their reunion tour in '08, but even THAT was wild. They had to cut the gig short when Gibby threw a beer bottle at the sound guy and got escorted out by security, and the crowd went APESHIT. They were only momentarily quelled by a tattooed woman coming on stage and telling them to shush, and it wasn't until later that I realized it was Genesis P-Orridge.

joe m.: this one was at the Warner Theater in DC - a great old victorian-style theater: I recall the fireballs causing great concern amongst the security folks... and the scene of hallucinating human depravity at the t-shirt stand was total fear-and-loathing territory.

I got through so many tough deadlines for Rick&Morty with coffee and "my castle of quiet" as my only companions fueling my late nights. I'm supremely bummed that swell guy is gone. I remember distinctly that I storyboarded stupid Rick scenes while he was playing a "Mercyful Fate" block. I used to keep a pad of paper by my computer and write down music he recommended. His departure is a huge void. R.I.P.
  Thu. 9/14/17 3:42pm ERD:

Sinistre! Digging real deep, love it. Also, politely,please realize that it's a big gauche to be discussing what shows might take over for My Castle of Quiet. It will no doubt be something great but just be patient.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/14/17 3:42pm ɨkɛ:

Looks like Dum Dum is already listed on the schedule in that slot. :( {sob} His taste in metal is nowhere near as good as Wm.'s. For that matter, I bet Wm. would have been better at writing and soliciting poems about brutally slaughtering the baby Jesus, too, if he'd had any interest in such a thing. [pours out a 40 of whatever cheap crap Dum Dum is drinking lately]

When I first started listening to WFMU, Fabio and The Hip Bone were on back to back Friday evenings. That was always an amazing block of radio.

@Rev - yes, that's how it went down in philly too - the flames were hitting the ceiling tiles so hard that they would spread a good 3 foot radius on the tiles. i still have a cowgirl t-shirt from one of those tours. so glad to hear you tell how it was in DC!

@NGH you're literally digging a ditch?! Holy shmow. Also, playing your own band on your own show at FMU is verboten, isn't it? (Unless it's FMA or royalty-free, perhaps?)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/14/17 4:04pm northguineahills:

Ike, I had a bad experience w/ Dum Dum. about 14 years ago, my band was to play at WFMU, but the marathon was going on, so all of the equipment from studio B was gone, and studio A was bare bones, so, we played w/ the dj w/ no studio engineers. Everything went wrong, and we barely got a set off before the end of the time slot w/ 10 minutes to spare. We were breaking down our equipment and Dum Dum came in and ordered us out as he needed to get into character. (We would have been out before midnight, but his manner hit us the wrong way. That said, I have no ill feelings towards him).
