"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.)

Skipping, or reremixed?

hello good morning did i miss the clay/ja duet?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 5/11/18 9:23am Devin B.:

Re-remix!
  Fri. 5/11/18 9:23am Karen:

I’ve been wondering, is this remixed every week?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 5/11/18 9:25am Ken From Hyde Park:

@Karen - I was just composing a comment with the same question. It feels to me like some of the parts in the middle are different. One of life's mysteries.
  Fri. 5/11/18 9:33am Karen:

@Ken, yes, there’re parts that sound very similar and parts that sound new. And the song is generally so complex that it’s hard to remember it entirely from week to week. But my fish and I enjoy it as we debate how different each week is.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 5/11/18 9:33am karlward:

JA: play a dub song and call it reggae. They'll never expect it.
  Fri. 5/11/18 9:36am Karen:

This song is one of the ones where the lag between radio broadcast and device streaming enhances the music and vibe. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 5/11/18 9:43am melinda:

I like the wind song.

Si! In the digi-flesh! Hope all is swell...

This is the relaxing music to decompress after the stuck in traffic, gotta get to the station music Clay was playing

Guilt by association, i don't blame you for the shooting of Robert Smith. Hope all's good w you

Nothing like a funeral procession to kick off the weekend!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 5/11/18 10:02am steveo:

anytime is a good time for a brass band, even a funeral
  Fri. 5/11/18 10:03am Vixo:

Got a garbage situation here at work...

garbage situation?
Avatar    Fri. 5/11/18 10:08am Wild Neil||Peace All:

Missed last weeks pickup due to test, have many ordinance-breaking garbage bags for next week. Its a mess.
Regarding the pressure washer-a Simpson with a side mounted pump and Honda motor sound pretty good.
Avatar    Fri. 5/11/18 10:08am Wild Neil||Peace All:

Breaking up sheetrock to this....appropriate.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 5/11/18 10:09am steveo:

oh a literal garbage situation

That Felix Blume record is amazing. Piano with Screaming is a fave.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 5/11/18 10:12am karlward:

Is this jazz? Asking for a friend.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 5/11/18 10:14am John Allen:

c'mon Karl. WHO REALLY WANTS TO KNOW
Avatar    Fri. 5/11/18 10:15am Wild Neil||Peace All:

@Steveo-i do everything from write reports, conduct tests, offer opinions on test standards to janitorial. We are a small shop.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 5/11/18 10:15am karlward:

JA: my kids want to know. I don't know how to answer them. We haven't had the talk about "jazz" yet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 5/11/18 10:16am steveo:

if you have to ask, it's jazz
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 5/11/18 10:17am steveo:

“If you have to ask what jazz is, you'll never know.”

Lisa: "You have to listen to the notes she's not playing."
Man next to Lisa: "I could do that at home."

@neil sounds better than sitting at a desk all day, tbh
Avatar    Fri. 5/11/18 10:21am Wild Neil||Peace All:

Is The New Order different than New Order?! I gotta check Discogs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 5/11/18 10:22am karlward:

You can tell it isn't really New Order by the haircut.

@Steveo-my boss is the best in the world. He NEVER micromanages. He wants to be a natural healer.

I accidentally ordered cobra death at a restaurant once and it did NOT go well.

Killer show, JA.

dammit, i just spilled tea on my bird beak shirt; I blame the trash monkeys
Avatar    Fri. 5/11/18 11:22am Dave in SoDak:

where in the world did you find that no direction lp/7"? it came out on both. i've worked with those guys a lot over the years...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 5/11/18 11:32am John Allen:

there you go Dave, the magical depth of album wing in the FMU music library
  Fri. 5/11/18 11:34am goyim in the am:

M.a.l. Is both a brilliant innovative guitarist and a bitter, angry crank; in a recent interview I heard on German radio, he claimed credit for Bowie‘s work with out guitarists, claiming Fripp, Belew, and Gabrels were all carefully instructed to copy his early 70s stuff. Great player with an axe to grind.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 5/11/18 11:37am steveo:

i miss the trees
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 5/11/18 11:39am John Allen:

Goyim i think the flaw in the story is that Ohr took the time to send a response, rather they likely would have ignored if there was an actual theft of ideas
  Fri. 5/11/18 11:39am Mark Williams:

@goyim - what radio station was that on? We're talking about Daniel Malempre, right?
Avatar    Fri. 5/11/18 11:40am Wild Neil||Peace All:

Who is M.A.L.? I had to turn down the sound to work on office stuff...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 5/11/18 11:59am Ken From Hyde Park:

Nice way to finish up, aboard the rocket ship.
  Fri. 5/11/18 12:03pm Nulsh:

This rocket ship track is great! Cheers dude!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 5/11/18 12:03pm maestroso:

That Samara Lubelski piece was nice. I have one of her records somewhere.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 5/11/18 12:03pm George of Troy:

Have a good week, John... thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 5/11/18 12:04pm John Allen:

see ya'll
  Swag For Life Member    Fri. 5/11/18 12:58pm Alofat:

I think the Tommy Jay & The General song title Cobra Breath. Cheers!
