Listener comments!

Avatar 2/17 3:07pm Tony Coulter:

Hello all! Lost my internet connection for several days last week, so I wasn't able to do my show Tuesday. (Thanks to Julie for the heroic, last-minute fill-in!) Anyway, today we'll be listening to the tapes I meant to air. Let's pretend last week's snafu never happened!
Avatar 11:07am Kay:

Situation normal again, I hope (not at all f***ed up)
Avatar 11:53am Tony Coulter:

Hi, Kay! Yeah, things are back to normal, thankfully.
  11:58am headcleaner:

last week? what last week? all time is the same now
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:00pm Yvang:

Thankfully snafus are not archived. Hey Tony and all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:01pm listener james from westwood:

Welcome back, Tony, and glad the wires are cooperating!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:01pm David (in London):

Afternoon Tony and all groovers and hiss-fans here assembled.
Avatar 12:02pm Sem:

Hello, Tony, cassette-treasurers, and those still on the fence about tape hiss.
Avatar 12:03pm Tony Coulter:

Hey, headcleaner! You're right. Time is meaningless. Maybe it really happened next week.
Avatar 12:04pm Tony Coulter:

Hola, hey, hello, Yvang, James, David, & Sem!!
Avatar 12:06pm Tony Coulter:

This tape on now isn't on discogs -- which, of course, means it doesn't really exist.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:06pm David (in London):

I'm already loving this tape life.

Hail the Semulator, Vyang!

Julie did a hero's shift last week. Darn great it was. Glad to have you back though Tony.
Avatar 12:11pm Listening Out There:

Current recording not to be confused with Ub Iwerks...
Avatar 12:13pm Tony Coulter:

Maybe it'd work if Mickey Mouse went to the moon. Greets, L.O.T.!
Avatar 12:15pm Tony Coulter:

Maybe this music would work, I mean.
Avatar 12:16pm Katya Oddio:

Loving this. Thanks for the time travel, Tony! Cheers!
Avatar 12:16pm Listening Out There:

Maybe so. Maybe "Music for Tomorrowland"? (Thinking of a past section of Disneyland here...)
  12:17pm Dean:

Lewis Demetri Corelis of Musik Werks died in October 2010.
  12:18pm headcleaner:

werks for me
Avatar 12:18pm Tony Coulter:

Hi there, Katya!
Avatar 12:19pm Tony Coulter:

Hey, Dean. Reading the obituaries again, I see.
  12:22pm Dean:

Cheers me up.
Avatar 12:22pm Tony Coulter:

I discovered Musik Werks the first (and only?) time I went to City Island. Found one of their LPs in a weird little record store -- which is no doubt long gone.
Avatar 12:23pm Listening Out There:

The Future Ain't What It Used to Be...
  12:24pm Dean:

Was this the record store?

Avatar 12:25pm Tony Coulter:

Yes! I couldn't remember the name, but that is indeed it.
Avatar 12:26pm Sem:

Hello, D iL. Head down in spreadsheets w/ Tape Hiss in my ears.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:26pm David (in London):

When the horizon of 'the future' is shrunken to 'this coming Spring', futurism becomes a somewhat hard furrow to plough. Sigh.
  12:36pm hunkered oats:

Hey Tony I’m on my exercise bike can you play eye of the tiger
Avatar 12:38pm Tony Coulter:

Hiya, hunkered (I'm guessing holland) oats!

How about eye of newt?
  12:39pm hunkered oats:

Yes that works thanks!!
  12:40pm Dean:

"Asked to describe him, the list is long; musician, audio engineer, writer, sage, innovator, teacher, philosopher, futurist and student of engineering. An environmental activist and practitioner, he was founder of Green Industry Aggregation, co-founder and CEO of Midwest Sustainable Energy Contractors, 2009 Moline mayoral candidate, and Future House USA-US Team Project Manager at The Learn Green Foundation. But the role of greatest importance to him was that of devoted and loving father, husband and family man."

I love that dangling participle. Seems like he was a great guy.
Avatar 12:41pm Tony Coulter:

Dean speaketh of Lew Corelis, one half of Musik Werks.
  12:43pm Dean:

Tomorrow would have been his 68th birthday.
Avatar 12:49pm Tony Coulter:

I, of course, had no idea of that, but I guess it's appropriate to be playing his stuff today, then.
Avatar 12:56pm Tony Coulter:

I *think* he's the one in the foreground, tho I'm not sure. By the way, this same photo appears on the back of their first LP, "Songs You've Never Heard Before" www.discogs.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:56pm I-k-e:

Sounds good!
Avatar 12:57pm Tony Coulter:

H-i t-h-e-r-e, I-k-e!
  1:03pm Mark Williams:

hey Tony and everyone. In and out, I am. Tuesday has become a trickier day for me at work of late. I am liking this cassette quite a bit. Winter Interlude is lovely.
Avatar 1:06pm Tony Coulter:

Hi there, Mark!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:07pm Cmurtha:

I have been enjoying the Musik Werks.
Avatar 1:08pm Tony Coulter:

Ahoy, Cmurtha!

I'm glad you and Mark are enjoying this thing.
Avatar 1:14pm Tony Coulter:

The tracks on this tape are basically arranged chronologically. All of side A was recorded in 1977, and we are now up to 1979.
Avatar 1:17pm Tony Coulter:

And now, at last, we've entered the 1980s....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:18pm David (in London):

Getting a bit Louis and Bebe Barron at points. Nice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:25pm Rick from SC:

Welcome back Tony.
Avatar 1:29pm Tony Coulter:

Thanks, Rick!

Other than not being able to do my show, or work, it was actually kind of nice to have no internet connection for three days. I didn't fritter away hours on youtube, for one thing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:32pm listener james from westwood:

Lovely stuff through the halfway mark!
Avatar 1:34pm Tony Coulter:

Thanks, James!

The abrasiveness quotient will be rising now.
  1:35pm Mark Williams:

getting A Certain Ratio vibes here.
  1:43pm Mark Williams:

but not anymore...
Avatar 1:45pm Tony Coulter:

I've always wondered why the New Zealand experimental/post-punk/indie scene of the '80s got a good deal of attention here in the U.S. (the Flying Nun stuff, for example), but similar Australian music got comparatively little attention. Just chance, I guess.
  1:48pm Mark Williams:

Beyond the Southern Cross was a compilation I picked up that had a lot of Aussie stuff. Mixed in was some Clean, mind you.
Avatar 1:52pm Tony Coulter:

Yeah, I've been looking for that comp.

It's just that there are so many great Australian '80s bands that are barely known at all. Like, say, Makers of the Dead Travel Fast and all the other M Squared groups. Or the David Chesworth stuff.
  1:55pm Mark Williams:

Vinyl On Demand did a lot of that M Squared stuff. Well I think the Flying Nun material is more pop/indie on average. That played well in the UK during the '80s.
Avatar 1:58pm Tony Coulter:

I've got that Vinyl on Demand M Squared box -- it's a great thing. Yeah, I guess it is true that Flying Nun could get pretty poppy at times -- maybe that is the reason they made more headway internationally.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:01pm David (in London):

I'm liking the turn this one is taking.
  2:04pm Mark Williams:

There was that "Take It" compilation series of Aussie post-punk. I recently got Vol 1, after buying Vol 2 and really liking it. Vol 1 was a bit of a dud, however, and it made me wonder about the overall quality of what was going on in Australia. Compare that to that Time Out comp that Bruce Russell of Dead C did for Flying Nun and it's no contest.
Avatar 2:06pm Tony Coulter:

Don't know the "Take It" series, I don't think.
Avatar 2:08pm Tony Coulter:

Oops -- double negative.
Avatar 2:09pm Tony Coulter:

I don't think I don't think I don't know.
  2:10pm Dean:

Triple negative, the contracted "not" in "don't" times two, plus "know."
  2:10pm Tongue of Yak:

A little nostalgia via Mars?
Avatar 2:11pm Tony Coulter:

Hiya, Tongue of Yak!

Yes -- I do miss Mars.
Avatar 2:13pm Tony Coulter:

And my blue, three-eyed Martian bride.
  2:29pm Dane:

Good stuff but I can't help feeling like it's missing something that was there on Ledge and Dog Photos. They feel more like an actual group of people making experimental music together rather than a recording project.
Avatar 2:33pm Tony Coulter:

Hey, Dane! Kinda know what you mean. Guess they were adjusting to slimming down from a quartet to a duo.
Avatar 2:38pm Tony Coulter:

Oops. I think we may be listening to "Blue Doors and Water" still. I jumped the gun on "Moisture."
Avatar 2:39pm Tony Coulter:

These tapes can be tricky for this poor accuplaylister when they don't list track lengths.
  2:44pm Dane:

Dog Photos was just re-released
Avatar 2:46pm Tony Coulter:

Good to know. I've got Ledge, but not that one.
Avatar 2:47pm Tony Coulter:

Tho I do have both on a twofer CD.
Avatar 2:47pm Tony Coulter:

(like anybody cares.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:49pm Julie:

This is hard to dance to but I'm trying
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:50pm Cmurtha:

Great show today Tony. Thank you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:51pm Yvang:

Hey Tony, what is the mystery LP behind the cassettes this time? If an LP this is ...
Avatar 2:51pm Tony Coulter:

Dance, Julie, dance! (Hiya!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:52pm Yvang:

I am not dancing but my hands are laughing.
Avatar 2:53pm Tony Coulter:

@ Yvang: Here it is: www.discogs.com...
Avatar 2:53pm Tony Coulter:

Thanks, Cmurtha!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:54pm David (in London):

Julie, I recommend something more like an 'interpretative dance' than a dancefloor boogie...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:54pm Yvang:

Thanks Tony! and also thank you for this show!
  2:57pm T.O,Y>:

Watch"'Mars Needs Women" &listen to Mars /DNA.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:57pm David (in London):

Thanks Tony, lots of fun today.
  2:57pm headcleaner:

thanks tony it's been sswell
  2:58pm Dane:

That twofer CD is going for big bucks these days
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:58pm Yvang:

I always assume the mystery LP are subconsciously very recommended pieces of art.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:58pm listener james from westwood:

Killer pair of tapes, Tony—thanks!
Avatar 2:58pm Tony Coulter:

Thanks, everyone! See you next week!!
