October 28, 2003: Yo, can I get some?

Listen to this show:

(* = new)

Artist Track Album Comments New Approx. start time
  Oy love, want some chips? I'm totally out of my head tonight, as I attempt to add anecdotal relevance to my accuplaylist while forking a pasta/vegetable medley into my mouth in the makeshift office I've constructed in my kitchen closet. Why am I so spaced out? Get with the times -- the WFMU Record Fair is less than two weeks away! This is WFMU's twice-a-year coming out party where we invite all of YOU to the Metropolitan Pavilion to FACE THE MUSIC, LITERALLY. As WFMU's Special Events Director, I'm quite proud of the cultural catastrophe that is the Record Fair and hope you'll all come out and say hello. There'll be more records and CDs than you can shake a stick at, not to mention live appearances from Metal Urbain (gnarly Frenchcore), Flaming Fire (gnarly Gaean Rock), Evolution Control Committee (gnarly mix unt scratch), the Super Karaoke Funtime Band (just plain gnarly), and Dave the Spazz's Spazz TV, Fabio's Krautrock movies, incredible animations from Mumbleboy, and probably some more things that I can't remember right now.
English Beat  Save it for Later   What is Beat?  At some point over the weekend, someone must have uttered the words "Night Flight" to me in consecutive order, which without fail results in the English Beat, Specials, or the Selecter being played on the radio by my hand. It's been a long time since I actively chronicled The Best Live Shows I Ever Remember Seeing, but the Special Beat reunion tour in 1989 would definitely still make the list, were I to compile it today.    0:00:00 )

The Speaking Canaries  Menopause Diaries   Get Out Alive: The Last Type Story  I know it's not even November yet, but I'm throwing down the dice, calling the game, and declaring this to be the best song of the year. Maybe the last five years!  *   0:24:41 )
Brant Bjork and the Operators  My Ghettoblaster   self titled LP  Summer, as represented by chord progressions.    0:37:04 )

Flux Information Science  Punish or be Damned   The Necessary Effect 2xCD  tribute compilation to the Screamers    1:24:34 )
Discharge  Protest and Survive   Never Again  What I *meant* to say before is that the only way I'm able to continually appreciate these sorts of records as I get older is to file the associations I've attatched to them in the nostalgia folder and pretend the sincere consideration I gave them when I was 17 never happened. I was introduced to Discharge by a local burnout named Marcel who had at least 10 years on my teenaged self at the time. What he was doing hanging out with snotnosed punks like me in the late 80s, I'll never guess but he was a good guy and pretty much the first and last person I met that I could argue the merits and virtues of the song "Two Monstrous Nuclear Stockpiles" with.    1:29:08 )
Nomeansno  Sex Mad   Sex Mad  Manic.    1:31:19 )
Nomeansno  Dad   Sex Mad  Even moreso.    1:35:56 )
LFO  Moistly   Sheath    *   1:38:33 )
Negativland  Helter Stupid   House Arrest  Between this track and the Cheater Slicks piece I played last week, one would think that the half-hour opus was becoming a tradition on Hip Transistor but I assure you it was nothing more than a pure and natural nostalgia trip. Negativland has countless moments of genius, and this happens to be the first one I was ever exposed to, thusly earning it a place of special value in my heart.    1:53:55 )
All Scars  recorded 1997 at the Knitting Factory   Introduction to Humanity  Back when I thought my opinions mattered, I co-edited a fanzine called Green Means Go! which I'm still enormously proud of because, if I may be so bold as to say, it was one of last NYC area zines in the just-before-everyone-did-webzines-instead era that covered the music I liked in a semi-coherent manner. The never-published "last issue" would have featured interviews with the Starlite Desperation and the All Scars -- two bands that made big impressions on me in early 2000 and I wish more people appreciated here and now, nearly 4 years later. The transcripts of both unpublished interviews are housed on the hard drive of this crappy iMac that I'm currently typing on, so if anyone wants to read them, I'd be happy to share them. Did you know that Dug Birdsell was in the All Scars? He used to be in in Beefeater! (One of my old faves from the Dischord back catalog.) I was plenty nervous about meeting him, but he, like the other All Scars, was sweet as peaches during the interview, as I recall. I was supposed to interview the Slaves that same night, and they weren't even 1/8th as nice.    2:14:01 )
Funkaho  Villain Style   12"  WTF???!  *   2:17:30 )
PMD  '87 to Present   Look at U Now 12"    *   2:19:47 )
KK Null  5:09   Atomik Disorder    *   2:22:33 )
Nomads  Good Guys Don't Wear White   Outburst  Standells cover. As long as I'm waxing nostalgic on this playlist, I might as well tell you that another total red-letter rock show was seeing the Nomads at a bar called Kilowatt in San Francisco the first time I ever visited the wrong coast. It was one of those shows that you find about about 10 minutes before it starts, that you know you probably shouldn't go to because you're in a strange city ostensibly to visit friends (not to see Swedish rock bands), but you just can't help yourself and when you get there, you're one of 30 paying customers and the band is SO good that you know right then and there that you made the right choice. Friends can be replaced.    2:29:38 )
The Left  5 A.M.   Hell, it's the World EP  A self-indulgent alltime favorite. Terminal ups to early radio confidante Sean Murphy, who was the first guy to play this song for me back at WPRB.    2:31:52 )
Eater  Jeepster   Chronicles 1976-2003 2xCD  T. Rex cover.  *   2:34:38 )
Metamo  (?)   Ja-Do    *   2:36:42 )
Babbletron  The Clock Song   Mechanical Royalty    *   2:40:21 )

  "O Nosso Amor"   "Black Orpheus"  soundtrack -- this is one of the best movies ever made.    2:50:39 )
Fort Dax  (as yet untitled)   At Bracken    *   2:54:43 )
