Just noticed I missed the Raymond Scott - love his esoteric stuff, but I believe he also did music for Warner Brothers cartoons. There a guy on FB based in Ohio (I think) that has a whole FB page dedicated to Raymond Scott and his Electronium
  8:25pm Tyler:

Nice hard stop

I like a song that commits to an ending

Love these guys so much!
  8:31pm Tyler:

One of things I enjoy about listening to music in a language I don't understand - if the lyrics are bad it doesn't matter
  8:32pm Tyler:

Hello Babs, Derek & Mr. Moop!
  8:37pm Tyler:

Very interesting about Faldoul, Babs. Based on the song you played - it sounds as though he & Les Privileges are bringing more to it than just being the 'Morrocan James Brown'.
Avatar 8:38pm DJ Blush:

  8:39pm Tyler:

  8:39pm Tyler:

I really like that jazzy instrumental album they put out.
  8:40pm Tyler:

Think it was called something like 'The In Sound From Way Out'

I have to see that new Liars video!!!

Speaking of Liars... One my best friends' wife is good friends with them. I think she used be their unofficial 'manager' and help them get gigs or something.

@babs You’ll love the two new videos. This one is super cool and β€˜spinny’.
Avatar 👻 8:49pm DJ Babs:

I do love spinny and cool!

VELVETS cover!
Avatar 👻 8:50pm DJ Babs:

We love the Velvets here on WFMU lol
  8:50pm Tyler:

Nice version
  8:52pm Tyler:

Me, too! My parents were at a festival here Toronto in the 60's where they played. My brothers and I were dying when they told us. They didn't like them. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:53pm Mr Fab:

Hey gang! Yeah, this is nice. I remember the heyday of the '80s Velvets revival when everyone and his brother was doing VU covers. Maybe it's time to revive the revival?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:54pm Mr Fab:

Tyler, I had a neighbor who was a Berkley hippie and also hated the Velvets when he saw 'em at the Fillmore. I think steam came out of my ears.
  8:56pm Tyler:

@ Mr Fab - to be fair - they were likely either pretty noisy or pretty drony or were baiting the crowd with insults :)
  8:56pm Tyler:

WIRE may be my favourite band of all time
Avatar 👻 8:57pm DJ Babs:

Well Tyler prepare to be entertained, lol
Avatar 👻 8:57pm DJ Babs:

Hi Mr. Fab!
Avatar 8:58pm Alli B:

We missed the Wire show because it was either March or April 2020
  8:58pm Tyler:

In the 80's they didn't want to play their past material so they hired a cover band to open for them called 'the Ex-Lion Tamers' to play all their old songs to hopefully satisfy the crowd :)
  9:00pm Tyler:

@Alli B - I had tickets to that. Wire were in Montreal and I was due to see them on that Wednesday when they sent us home from work on Tuesday and they announced they were cancelling the tour.
Avatar 9:00pm Alli B:

Such a bummer!
Avatar 👻 9:00pm DJ Babs:

Wire was the last show we were supposed to go to Alli!!
Avatar 9:01pm Alli B:

That’s right!
  9:01pm Tyler:

Yeah, so close. Fortunately, I've seen them many times, but still it was a kick in the pants.
  9:01pm Tyler:

  9:04pm Tyler:

Their 'Punk' fans that only wanted them to play '12XU' over and over again would have gone nuts if they had released this song at the time - not that Wire would have cared :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:04pm Mr Fab:

very Syd Barrett-era Floyd
  9:05pm Tyler:

@Mr. Fab Yes, you're right it is very Barrett-esque. Probably another reason they didn't release it.
  9:06pm Tyler:

They were already being called 'Punk Floyd' at the time and they were on 'Harvest' the same label as The Floyd.

Were you the Mars comment?
  9:17pm Tyler:

I remember seeing a show at the Timothy Eaton church with a full pipe organ and a bunch of hip-hop dudes. They did a song called 'Party in the Bathroom' which was pretty surreal to witness in a church...
Avatar 9:18pm Alli B:

That’s so cool, Tyler
  9:18pm george westerholm:

@derekwesterholm yes

Avatar 👻 Swag For Life Member 9:23pm Derek Westerholm:

Still catching up on comments... Yeah, that cover of VU is pretty great... Tyler, glad you're a Wire fan! Hopefully you are still a fan after my long ramble & insistence on playing three versions of the same song, haha.
Avatar 👻 Swag For Life Member 9:24pm Derek Westerholm:

Hi Mr. Fab, George, Alli & anyone else I may have missed in my sojourn to the decks
  9:25pm Tyler:

@ Derek - you're a Wire fan after my own heart. I have all 3 albums that all 3 of those songs appear on in multiple formats. :)

Wire never does anything without a reason. And each of those versions has something new to say..
Avatar 👻 Swag For Life Member 9:26pm Scott67:

  9:26pm Tyler:

I wish there was a video game with this in 8-bit on the soundtrack
  9:26pm george westerholm:

best organ centric set ever
Avatar 9:30pm DJ Blush:

  9:31pm Tyler:

Love that organ skronk!
  9:32pm george westerholm:

@tyler right! the best!
  9:32pm Tyler:

Such an expressive instrument for something that wasn't even touch-sensitive at the time...
  9:34pm Tyler:

I have an old 'portal' pump organ I bought from an antique store. No electricity - you pump pedals, so it's like musical stairmaster.

The 'portable' part is it folds up into about a 4 foot by 2 foot wooden box that weighs about 50 lbs.
Avatar 👻 9:35pm DJ Babs:

Avatar 👻 9:35pm DJ Babs:

  9:35pm Tyler:

I always wanted to start a set in my little pickup band of me waling on stage lugging the pump organ, set it up and play 'Light Shade of Pale' followed by Van Halen's 'Jump'.
  9:36pm george westerholm:

They should play this in every body shop
