(* = new)

Artist Track Album Label Year Comments New Approx. start time
Brian Eno  1/1   Favoriting Ambient #1 Music For Airports  Virgin / Astralwerks  1978  The release that started Brian Eno's "Ambient" Series and brought him further into that world    0:00:00 (Pop-up)
MGMT  Brian Eno   Favoriting Congratulations  Columbia Records  2010  MGMT wrote a couple of anthemic summer songs, then followed it up with a sophomore double-record, produced by Sonic Boom & packed full of eccentricities, obscure references and ambitiously arranged & layered songs. Needless to say it's my favourite, and maybe not their record label's. This song is about Brian Eno, or, in full: Brian Peter George St John le Baptiste de la Salle Eno.    0:06:08 (Pop-up)
Brian Eno  Driving Me Backwards   Favoriting Here Come The Warm Jets  Virgin / Astralwerks  1974  From Brian Eno's debut solo album, after his departure from Roxy Music & before he became amongst the most famous artists and producers that the world has seen.    0:10:32 (Pop-up)
Television Personalities  King And Country   Favoriting "Some Kind Of Happening" Singles 1978-1989  Fire Records  1980  From 1980, Track 5 on "They Could Have Been Bigger Than the Beatles"    0:15:54 (Pop-up)
MGMT  Song For Dan Treacy   Favoriting Congratulations  Columbia Records  2010 / 2014  Dan Treacy headed up the Television Personalities. He become shrouded in intrigue and mystery when he seemingly disappeared, perhaps more than once. He also wrote a song in the 80's called "I Know Where Syd Barrett Lives", so there's that parallel, too.    0:19:26 (Pop-up)
Brian Eno  1/1   Favoriting Ambient #1 Music For Airports  Virgin / Astralwerks  1978  The release that started Brian Eno's "Ambient" Series and brought him further into that world    0:23:46 (Pop-up)
U.S. Girls  Time   Favoriting In A Poem Unlimited  4AD  2018  Once centred out of the U.S. and fond of solo cutup pastiches; Meg Remy is now in our city of Toronto w/ her husband Max "Slim Twig" Turnbull making music as a full ensemble.    0:33:14 (Pop-up)
Darlene Shrugg  Freedom Comes In A Plastic Card   Favoriting Darlene Shrugg  Upset the Rhythm  2017  "Darlene Shrugg are a rock band from Toronto. Simone TB + Slim Twig + Meg Remy + Carlyn Bezic + Amanda Crist"    0:40:53 (Pop-up)
Ice Cream  Plastic   Favoriting Ice Cream  Bad Actors  2015  Ice Cream are Carlyn Bezic and Amanda Crist; produced by Guv & Price & Ice Cream    0:44:35 (Pop-up)
Jane, Inc  Dirt And The Earth   Favoriting Number One  Telephone Explosion  2021  All Songs written and performed by Carlyn Bezic    0:48:35 (Pop-up)
Brian Eno  1/2   Favoriting Ambient #1 Music For Airports  Virgin / Astralwerks  1978  The release that started Brian Eno's "Ambient" Series and brought him further into that world    0:52:39 (Pop-up)
Pop Stress  Neurotic   Favoriting DotDash Radio Presents - International Post-Punk Dance Party 2!  WFMU Marathon Premium  1981  This band, apparently from Canada, from 1981 -- I need to know more. From WFMU's own DotDash Radio, their 2021 WFMU Marathon Premium - Selections by DJ TomDash    1:00:51 (Pop-up)
The Pop Group  She Is Beyond Good and Evil   Favoriting Y  Rhino  1979  1979 classic from Mark Stewart and company.    1:04:30 (Pop-up)
Jah Wobble  Poptones   Favoriting Metal Box - Rebuilt In Dub  Cleopatra  2021  2021: Jah Wobble revisits 1979's second Public Image Ltd album (on which he was the bassist.) That album is known as "Metal Box" (when in film cannister packaging) and also as "Second Edition". Revisiting older work can be a patchy affair, but this is intriguing to me...  *   1:08:09 (Pop-up)
Brian Eno  2/1   Favoriting Ambient #1 Music For Airports  Virgin / Astralwerks  1978  The release that started Brian Eno's "Ambient" Series and brought him further into that world    1:17:54 (Pop-up)
Elvis Costello & The Attractions  Twenty-Five To Twelve   Favoriting Trust (Deluxe)  Rykodisc  1981 / 1994  "The first in a continuing series illustrating the crooked path that a song may take to its final resting place. The track, which owes more than a little to David Bowie's "Heroes", was an unsuccessful experiment, but the words and music went on and... on.    1:26:16 (Pop-up)
Elvis Costello & The Attractions  I Turn Around   Favoriting Imperial Bedroom (Deluxe)  Rykodisc / Rhino  1982 /1994  "This is a re-working of a chorus written when I was 19, although the words were a recent stab at the Esperanto of pop. A few lines survived to re-appear in "The Invisible Man"    1:39:23 (Pop-up)
Elvis Costello & The Attractions  Seconds Of Pleasure   Favoriting Punch The Clock (Deluxe)  Rykodisc  1981 / 1994  "Continuing the story of the song which was originally "25 to 12". This demo recording from Pathway Studios presents the song as a ballad with amended lyrics and an entirely new chorus and title."    1:33:24 (Pop-up)
Elvis Costello & The Attractions  The Invisible Man   Favoriting Punch The Clock (Deluxe)  Rykodisc  1983 / 2003  "...The final resting place of lyrics which had been part of the "unreleased" songs: "25 to 12", "Seconds Of Pleasure", and "I Turn Around""    1:39:08 (Pop-up)
Timber Timbre  Curtains?!   Favoriting Hot Dreams  Arts & Crafts  2014  Featuring words by Simone Schmidt    1:45:25 (Pop-up)
CAN  Mushroom   Favoriting The Singles  Mute  1971  Album version: Tago Mago; the incredible German band that influenced everything proto-punk-post-punk to come thereafter.    1:49:01 (Pop-up)
Suuns  X-Alt   Favoriting Felt  Secretly Canadian  2018  From Montreal, I love it when a Canadian band is on the "Secretly Canadian" label    1:53:09 (Pop-up)

Good evening all!

No Babs tonight, so we'll see if I can hit all the buttons and do all the things, and chat live, and suchlike
Avatar 👻 8:01pm Cameron Pretendre:

Hey Derek….I’m hoping for a musical version of the movie Bachelor Party tonight.

Hi Derek & Sheena streamers. Here to hear.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:11pm Mr Fab:

Stag party, Derek! Strippers, poker n beer!

(Or records, they're good too.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:11pm Derek Westerholm:

WR! Hello!!!!
Avatar 8:12pm ironybread:

I will favorite "Driving Me Backwards" every time it's played, even if it's played 8 times an hour until the end of time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:12pm Derek Westerholm:

Fab... Sticking with records, but the cat's got a wild look in his eyes, so it might get ugly over here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:12pm Derek Westerholm:

Irony, haha... It's so so so good!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:14pm Aitch:

First time look at this show, looking good so far
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:14pm Mr Fab:

Ken n Andy interviewed mr MGMT few years back on "7 Second Delay," when it was still before a live audience. Girls made excited noises for him. You never can tell who's a teen idol nowadays.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:14pm Derek Westerholm:

Aitch! Hello!
Avatar 👻 Swag For Life Member 8:15pm WR:

Aitch!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:15pm Derek Westerholm:

Fab, goes to show you...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:17pm Mr Fab:

I listened to "Here Come The Warm Jets" so much when I was wander i could walk around it blindfolded and not hit the furniture.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:17pm Mr Fab:

when i was younger
Avatar 8:18pm ironybread:

I Wonder As I Woinder As I Wander
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:19pm Derek Westerholm:

Ah, our younger wandering wondering selves...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:21pm Aitch:

Daughter was playing this MGMT a couple of days ago.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:21pm Derek Westerholm:

Going for a conceptual sort of first set here... Oh, I love this MGMT album so much, esp. these two songs...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:30pm Mr Fab:

Eno said that a friend of his brought an album to play in the hospital room, but the volume was low, and he couldn't get up. So he just lay there with the album quietly playing in the background.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:35pm Derek Westerholm:

Mr. Fab, thank you for filling in the considerable blanks in my stories & recollections...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:35pm Derek Westerholm:

It's great to be here with you all! What stories have you? What are you eating? What's happening in your world? What has made you happy?
  8:36pm Dj nico:

Quietly listening on this end
Avatar 👻 8:37pm Cameron Pretendre:

I am listening while eating Christmas chocolate eggs.
Avatar 8:37pm ironybread:

a) It's very very difficult for me to make myself happy
b) Right now I am stuffing "Firesign Theatre Live at the Magic Mushroom" DVDs into sleeves prior to the books arriving either tomorrow or Monday, at which point they will ship to everyone who's pre-ordered one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:38pm Derek Westerholm:

Hi Nico!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:39pm Derek Westerholm:

Cameron, did the Christmas bunny hide them, or did you find them yourself?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:40pm Derek Westerholm:

Ironybread... b) That sounds like quite the daunting task! a) Find the moments where you can, it's a pretty real-life thing for it to be difficult at most times...
Avatar 👻 8:41pm Cameron Pretendre:

I am the Christmas Bunny in this case. And, I hid them in my stomach.
Avatar 8:43pm Alli B:

Hi guys!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:43pm Mr Fab:

oh, i'm still on the clock, at werk like a jerk. But I sense a cocktail in my future.
Avatar 👻 8:44pm Cameron Pretendre:

I saw Darlene Shrugg at one of the Silver Dollar closing nights. They were great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:47pm Derek Westerholm:

Hi Alli!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:47pm Derek Westerholm:

Mr. Fab... Will your cocktail have an umbrella?
Avatar 👻 8:50pm Cameron Pretendre:

I hope some dry ice, sparkler and fancy straw too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:51pm Derek Westerholm:

What's up in your corner of the beach Alli?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:03pm Mr Fab:

Of course it will have an umbrella - you don't want your drink to get wet!
Avatar 9:03pm Alli B:

Still sitting outside because we’re insane. I love listening to the show outside!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:04pm Derek Westerholm:

I approve of this logic. If you want your drink to get wet, you deliberately use ice cubes, beyond that, it's all about protection.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:04pm Derek Westerholm:

Alli, breathe in some of that lovely fresh air for me!
Avatar 9:05pm Alli B:

Will do! The wind is wild and it’s great!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:08pm Derek Westerholm:

Yes, crazy windy, I had to hold my umbrella over my head with both hands this morning... If I was gingerly holding it by the handle, it would be in Mississauga by now.
Avatar 9:12pm Alli B:

Our outdoor curtains came loose and whipped everything off of the table, and the sofa was no longer on the deck. So awesome!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:15pm Derek Westerholm:

Some people pay good money to have their space re-organized.
Avatar 9:16pm Alli B:

Hahahaha! 💨
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:16pm Mr Fab:

I've probably played "Metal Box" more than any other album. had it on tape, LP, then the CD reissue in a metal box, finally mp3s. So yeah, I'll give this a shot. Even as I kind of feel that it shouldn't be touched...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:18pm Scott67:

G'day Babs, Derek & Beached!
Sitting in TRASH CULT with Mick recording our first Sheena's Show. ... I hope it's recording it??

Such a great song!

Scott, hello!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:36pm Derek Westerholm:

Irony, thank you for filling in my blanks, more blank filling...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:38pm Derek Westerholm:

Scott, tell me more about this show, that's fantastic news! Also, FYI, Babs isn't here this episode, thus this may explain when things go wrong over here...!
  9:43pm george westerholm:

the last was the best iteration finally I think
  9:46pm george westerholm:

we love you doing all the things you like to do
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:47pm Derek Westerholm:

Hello dear brother, I must say that I am very fond of that album, in the end... For some reason I listen to it every Autumn, "Punch The Clock", Elvis Costello & The Attractions, go figure!
Avatar 9:48pm Alli B:

We LOVE Timbre Timbre o’er here
