"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

Peace all! My 7 year old son who is off school due to wind chill conditions said the first song sounded like someone trying to cut off his feet with a chainsaw like "zzzzzzz....oww!".

I missed John talking about the "nance- pap ain't salty no more" record. Can't find anything about it with my low internet searching skills, has anyone more info about this band?

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/5/18 9:52am Polyus:

This really is an inspired project. How many people would even think to cover this sprawling mess of a record, much less put the effort in to making each song sound unique?

I got the word “incontrovertible” right on my SAT’s because of this track.

sugano, the Jewish radio show has migrated away from WFMU.

Any chance you could play something by The Revised Panther Burns?
Or maybe The Supplemental Panther Burns?
