Options Mid-Valley Mutations with Austin Rich: Playlist from February 1, 2022 Options

austinrich's avatar View austinrich's profile Options

A combination of collage, new experimental records and other bits and bobs, Mid-Valley Mutations is a tour through the mind of Austin Rich, who has been broadcasting in some form since 1998. Heavily influenced by Dr Demento, Don Joyce and old fashioned College Radio, Austin creates Audio Essays on a variety of subjects, and even just plays records, from time to time. Sometimes Live music and Interviews will grace the program, helping create a situation where you don't really know what you're going to hear, when you tune in. What you need to know is when you enter the Mid-Valley region, be prepared for the Musical Mutations... in whatever form they take.

Ooh, good lead-off! Love me some Pere Ubu!

GREAT start. The whole "Terminal Tower" collection is tops.
  9:03pm Geoff:

Hullo from Hardcorevallis
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:03pm Austin Rich:

Pere Ubu is one of those bands that I feel like takes a more mature ear to properly enjoy.

Good Hello, Scott67 and Mr. Fab!
Avatar 9:03pm HyperDose:

Oh hell yeah! \m/
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:03pm Austin Rich:

And Geoff! Nice to see you in the chat!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:03pm Austin Rich:

Hey Hyperdose!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:04pm Austin Rich:

This song makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up.
  🎸 9:05pm Ellen Lovebug:

I have a very visceral reaction to the words, "final solution," regardless of context. It's cognitive dissonance to fear the words but like the music
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:06pm Krys O.:

I bought 390 Degrees of Simulated Stereo in my senior year of high school in 1981. Still have it. I can't say that about a lot of the records I bought, but that's another story.
  🎸 9:07pm Ellen Lovebug:

This is one of those songs where it's as though the lyrics are deliberately mumbled so as to be enigmatic
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:07pm Krys O.:

Oddly enough I'm wearing my Pere Ubu 90 Days Same As Cash t-shirt.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:09pm Austin Rich:

Nice! Pere Ubu needs more representation.
  🎸 9:10pm Ellen Lovebug:

I saw Iggy Pop on a double bill with The Pretenders. I love Iggy. And of course he is represented in Velvet Goldmine...a film I adore. Iggy live was so raw.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:10pm Austin Rich:

Ellen: I think your reaction is totally appropriate. It's a pretty chilling song. A lot of punk is sort of hard to digest, sort of like a lot of hip hop. But I think it's worth it; sometimes, the imagery is on purpose.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:10pm Austin Rich:

Iggy is the best. Saw him a couple times, and he was SO MUCH FUN. Just a wonderful performer.
Avatar 🎸 9:12pm Mr. X:

Punk is generally anti-fascist (except for maybe the Oi! genre.) Any use of Nazi imagery or word choice is generally intended as mockery of fascism.
  🎸 9:13pm Ellen Lovebug:

I love that quote. Opposing complacency
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:14pm Austin Rich:

When I originally aired this show (in 2011), I immediately got calls from people who said, "But you left THIS out." I've been meaning to connect up my previous History Lesson (about Radio and Electricity's impact on music) and fill in the gaps between that show and this show. Maybe that's a good project to work on here at Sheena.
  🎸 9:14pm Ellen Lovebug:

Chess Records was actually started by a pair of Jewish brothers, immigrants from Poland.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:14pm Mr Fab:

Mr. X: Right, or as parody, like when jewish performers like Joey Ramone sang about a "Blitzkreig Bop," or the Dictators "Master Race Rock."
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:14pm Austin Rich:

I'm looking for a good Chess Records Documentary.
  🎸 9:16pm Ellen Lovebug:

This is definitely hippie psychedelic rock (which I grew up idolizing, I had a Woodstock poster on my wall and played the soundtrack often)
Avatar 🎸 9:16pm Mr. X:

The hippies were the original punks? All right, I'll buy that.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:17pm Austin Rich:

One omission in this show: Captain Beefheart. He even wrote a song about how he felt like his contribution to Punk Rock was already being overlooked by music critics. ("Ashtray Heart" is the song, supposedly.)
  9:17pm Bri:

I had a Woodstock poster as well! Went through a bit of a hippie phase back in high school
Avatar 9:17pm Formaldehydra:

Case of the punks indeed
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:18pm Krys O.:

@Austin Rich: Found this BBC doc on Chess Records: youtu.be...

It's in four parts.
  🎸 9:19pm Ellen Lovebug:

I saw ? and the Mysterians live at a party in Ann Arbor.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:23pm Austin Rich:

Good to see you in the chat, Formaldehydra!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:23pm Austin Rich:

Good Hello, Bri!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:24pm Austin Rich:

I would say that a lot of the stuff for this show (and for next week's show... tipping my hand, here) are solidly in the "top faves" category. Sort of my "go to" music when I just want something upbeat and loud, which seems to be my default mode.
Avatar 🎸 9:24pm Mr. X:

Such a great song.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:25pm Austin Rich:

A cover of the song "Strychnine" by the band "Strychnine" was the first song I ever played on the radio, on my first broadcast, on April 15th, 1998.
Avatar 🎸 9:26pm Mr. X:

So yeah, Lenny Kaye of Patti Smith Group compiled Nuggets, that's why it's so punk.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:26pm Austin Rich:

From about 2004 to 2006, I did an "all Nuggets-era" show, with the thesis statement that Lenny Kaye was right, and that Punk Rock started in the Garage Era. The DJ at our Wedding was instructed to only play "Nuggets Era Music," and it was a great reception.
Avatar 9:27pm Formaldehydra:

Speaking of “Strychnine”: one of the tracks on my “monthly music exchange” CD (curated by Austin himself) from last year had a track titles “Ernest Strychnine”
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:27pm Austin Rich:

That's right! I forgot about that track. Pretty good!
Avatar 9:28pm Formaldehydra:

I love the Residents’ take on “Psychotic Reaction”
  🎸 9:28pm Ellen Lovebug:

Patti Smith is amazing live. I saw her in Portland. Fact: I was flying to my grandma's birthday party back East, and I flew Eugene to Portland, scheduled a 4-hour layover before my East-bound flight, got picked up at the airport, went to see Patti Smith at the Roseland, and then back to the airport
Avatar 9:28pm Formaldehydra:

Oh! And on my HARSH RECITAL album, I have a track titled “Circumference Redacted”…a nod to this tune playing right now, haha
  🎸 9:28pm Ellen Lovebug:

The Residents were one of the odder shows I've seen
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:29pm Austin Rich:

I think Lester Bangs essay about The Count Five, and his imagined "other albums they released," might be one of the best essays on Rock Music that I've ever read, and he does lay out the blueprint for what punk should sound like in that essay. (He doesn't call it that, but he suspects that future Count Five albums would be punk. But he imagined all of that; there was only every one Count Five album.)
Avatar 🎸 9:29pm Mr. X:

@Ellen, I might have been at that Patti show, too. Just a few years ago?
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:30pm Austin Rich:

I saw Patti Smith in PDX too, Ellen. It was the first "Perk" I got for working at KPSU, after they hired me as Programming Director. The show was Amazing.
  🎸 9:30pm Ellen Lovebug:

@Mr. X it was around 2000, maybe 2001
Avatar 9:31pm Formaldehydra:

BRB, writing an article about Mini-Mutations albums that don’t exist (yet)
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:31pm Austin Rich:

I've been working on an essay on all the pre-cursors to Formaldehydra, but I had to make up most of the sources.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:32pm Austin Rich:

"No no. That's great."
Avatar 9:33pm Formaldehydra:

Your fabrications are most likely far more interesting than the true story
  🎸 9:34pm Ellen Lovebug:

I love the Velvet Underground and Lou Reed. My mom surprised me the other day by correctly guessing Lou Reed for a crossword puzzle entry
Avatar 9:34pm Formaldehydra:

I think I prefer this version over the “Waldo Jeffers” story…
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:34pm Austin Rich:

That was Lester Bang's philosophy, too: you can make up something that's probably more true than anything a rock star would make up.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:35pm Austin Rich:

I've been meaning to make new music for Waldo's story. A future show, I guess.
Avatar 9:35pm Formaldehydra:

Wish Lester Bangs would have made up more quality Godz releases…instead we got GODZUNDHEIT
Avatar 🎸 9:36pm Mr. X:

Oh, Nico....
Avatar 9:36pm Formaldehydra:

“Waldo Jeffers: the Untold Story” (a Mid-Valley Mutations production)
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:36pm Austin Rich:

I used to get this song stuck in my head when I was working at Barnes & Noble, but it would just keep going for the entire shift. Then I would come home and play this album again, to get it out of my head.
Avatar 9:37pm Formaldehydra:

Harsh Noise Walldo JefferSunn O))) Starfish
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:37pm Austin Rich:

We have to play that album when you guest on my show, Formaldehydra.
Avatar 🎸 9:37pm Mr. X:

I have a Peel Slowly and See banana t-shirt.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:37pm Austin Rich:

(Or we can improvise it on the spot, anyway.)
Avatar 9:38pm Formaldehydra:

Chop up and re-arrange that ZOOM interview we did in my backyard about two years ago
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:38pm Austin Rich:

One of the first albums I bought when I moved to PDX was that Velvets and Nico album, that I only had on tape before. I was stoked to find it on vinyl, and bought it immediately.
Avatar 9:39pm Formaldehydra:

I vaguely recall finding a beat up vinyl copy of that first album at a used book/record store I used to frequent as a kid. It was already peeled, of course. I didn’t buy it
Avatar 9:40pm Formaldehydra:

More notable finds at that shop that I DID buy: Bauhaus’ Seing the Heartache BBC sessions, Trout Mask Replica, some King Crimson records…
Avatar 9:41pm Formaldehydra:

*Swing
  🎸 9:41pm Ellen Lovebug:

I know all these psychedelic tracks. I probably know everything on the Nuggets collection...
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:45pm Austin Rich:

That Nuggets Collection is well worth picking up. I could hook you up, Ellen, if you need it.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:46pm Austin Rich:

Woah, Formaldehydra! Those are some good scores. I found a few used King Crimson records in Portland in the early 2000s, when kids hadn't figured out yet that they were cool and the prices went up.
  🎸 9:46pm Ellen Lovebug:

I had no idea Sub Pop existed in 1968. I heard of them shortly before '90 through Grunge. @Austin I will gladly take you up on that.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:46pm Austin Rich:

I found a Can CD in a thrift store a few blocks from here... and a Residents CD... and then the store closed! Now it's a head shop.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:47pm Austin Rich:

This is a re-issue on Sub-Pop. I think the original album, which was recorded in 1968, never got released. But it is a very strange and wonderful album from the late 60's, that sounds great on the Sub Pop re-issue.
Avatar 🎸 9:47pm Mr. X:

Michael Yonkers is a new one on me. I like it.
Avatar 9:48pm Formaldehydra:

Have y’all heard the BEYOND THE CALICO WALL comp? It’s another sixties garage comp, lots of deep cuts in there. “Tripsy” by the Pebble Episode and that one song by Riders of the Mark are both highlights that come to mind. It opens with a even more tripped-out take on “I Had Too Much to Dream Last Night,” and a cover of “In a Gadda Da Vida” done by this band called Six Feet Under (not the death metal band) where the drum solo sounds like it’s being playing a school marching band kit
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:48pm Austin Rich:

He was active for decades, but I think he almost never had a record deal until very late into his career.
  🎸 9:48pm Ellen Lovebug:

I've been immersed in nostalgia recently as I hooked up a cassette deck next to my treadmill. I started with Eugene's Hairy Mamas
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:49pm Austin Rich:

I've been wanting to get that comp, Formaldehydra! I've heard it's good, but I don't have it yet.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:50pm Austin Rich:

Ellen: that's awesome! I should send you a mix tape.
  🎸 9:50pm Ellen Lovebug:

This is new to me and quite groovy! Ooh I would treasure that
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:50pm Austin Rich:

It's All Meat is pretty obscure, but I really love the album. I found it in 2011, researching this show!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:51pm Austin Rich:

I love the sound on that bass!
  🎸 9:52pm Ellen Lovebug:

Excellent find.
Avatar 🎸 9:52pm Mr. X:

Yeah, that bass cuts through these tiny computer speakers, engineered for 70s transistor radios.
  🎸 9:53pm Ellen Lovebug:

MC5!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:54pm Austin Rich:

You can tell that some of these albums were mastered for a whole other kind of stereo. I have some good speakers in the Lava Lamp Lounge now (thanks to kiisu d'salyss of The Secret Light, who gifted me a bunch of gear to improve my Covid Broadcasting.)
Avatar 9:55pm Formaldehydra:

Steam up the hams
  🎸 9:55pm Ellen Lovebug:

I love Kiisu. Happy memories. Of course MC5 links back to Patti Smith, she had been married to Fred "Sonic" Smith of the MC5
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:56pm Austin Rich:

I wonder if there is enough material to do a full "MC5 / Steamed Hams" mash up?
Avatar 🎸 9:57pm Mr. X:

It's hard to engineer for all the different speakers people are going to be using. It's like trying to design a web page that works on both computers and phones.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:57pm Austin Rich:

Kiisu is the best. He let me sleep on his floor so many times when I was suddenly homeless that I owe him eternally. Plus we've been in bands together... he's wonderful.
Avatar 🎸 9:57pm Mr. X:

Oh how Patti loved Fred Sonic Smith.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:58pm Austin Rich:

Mr. X: Good point! I have been thinking about mixing my music in a number of different ways, for different releases / etc. Haven't done it yet, but it's been on my mind.
  🎸 9:58pm Ellen Lovebug:

I remember taking Jonathan to visit him and Jen in Reno.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:59pm Austin Rich:

Sir Lord Baltimore take their name from an obscure Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid reference. (Sir Lord Baltimore is a bounty hunter that they talk about in one scene.)
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:59pm Austin Rich:

Plus: this album rules!
Avatar 🎸 10:00pm Mr. X:

Sir Lord Baltimore: Metal punk before there was metal punk. I never heard of them before.
  🎸 10:00pm Ellen Lovebug:

I've physically been on the land that the actual Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid used as a hideaway. It's just outside Bedrock, Colorado. My friend randomly used to own the property
Avatar 🎸 10:01pm Mr. X:

Metal OR punk
  🎸 10:06pm Ellen Lovebug:

Ok now we're back in my childhood bedroom, I had a huge tapestry with Jim Morrison's face on it on one of my walls. I read the biography, No One Here Gets Out Alive, and was enthralled by his poetry
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:07pm Austin Rich:

I had this argument at The Matador in 2001 with my friend Lyra: That The Doors were one of the gateway drugs to punk and goth. Lyra, a goth, refused to hear anything I had to say on this subject, as she hated The Doors.

I also had to break the news to her that X's "Soul Kitchen" was a cover, of a song by a certain band...
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:08pm Austin Rich:

(The Matador is an excellent rock club in PDX, with very cool old bathrooms, and used to have great DJs and stuff. I haven't been there in years, so I have no idea if it's around / still open.)
  🎸 10:09pm Ellen Lovebug:

HAHAHAHAHA oh that's amusing. Was Lyra Honey Vizer?
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:09pm Austin Rich:

No. Honey Vizer is Honey Vizer, a rock star and celebrity in her own right that I would name drop if I were so lucky!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:10pm Austin Rich:

Lyra is Lyra. She sort of went by Lyra Cyst, but not always.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:10pm Austin Rich:

She sort of hung out with the Cathead crew, but not really. She "technically" played bass for us on one song: a cover of The Germs "Forming." She was gonna learn more songs, but got bored and decided she didn't like to practice.
  10:11pm Androu B.:

Hi there, Austin! Just noticed how lonely it is here on the chatboard and thought I'd join in for some extra company!
Lovin' the selections so far. Iggy & The Stooges and MC5 are right up my alley.
Just tuned in as you were playing SLB. I had one of their albums (can't remember which, maybe the eponymous album). Can you guess which format I had it in?
Avatar 🎸 10:11pm Mr. X:

I've tuned into Alice Coopers radio show a time or two, back in the 90s. It was generally entertaining and educational. I guess he's still doing it?
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:12pm Austin Rich:

While Alice Cooper is sort of divisive among a lot of people, I think he is one of the stops along the way to Punk Rock.

Did you have SLB on 8 Track, Androu B?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:13pm Will the Sound Guy:

This show is solid
Avatar 🎸 10:13pm Mr. X:

At least Alice didn't turn out like Ted Nugent.
  10:13pm Androu B.:

DING DING DING! That's the correct answer!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:13pm Austin Rich:

When the Sound Guy likes your show, you know you are doing SOMETHING right.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:14pm Austin Rich:

Wow. I've been looking for an 8 Track recorder, like I used to have in the 90's. And a CART Machine, too.
  🎸 10:14pm Ellen Lovebug:

Always up for The Stooges. Thanks for this
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:14pm Austin Rich:

Mr. X: You are correct. Alice is a lot cooler than Ted ever was.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:14pm Feldy:

Hey Austin. So much happened before '75. Great premise
  10:15pm Androu B.:

Hi there, Will! How's the little bundle of joy doing?
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:15pm Austin Rich:

Thanks Feldy! It's one of my fave eras of music, so it's easy to do for me.
  🎸 10:16pm Ellen Lovebug:

I used to drive an early '70s station wagon for work at a group home, and it had an 8-track player. I used to scavenge whatever I could from thrift shops. It was delightful. My favorite was a compilation that had Bad Blood by Neil Sedaka on it
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:16pm Austin Rich:

T. Rex is essential if you follow that Glam Proceeded Punk. I think they were more parallel, but really, T. Rex is good no matter what your allegiance is.

@-Androu B... she's taking a nap till midnight. then she eats and then sleeps again... the life of a 3 week old.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:17pm Austin Rich:

Congrats on the kid, Will! If I lived closer, I would offer Child Care... but that's an old career that I haven't done in years.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:17pm Will the Sound Guy:

Marc Bolan had such a sweet guitar tone... many have tried, but it's never quite the same.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:18pm Mr Fab:

Johnny Rotten would agree with you on Alice Cooper. He sang “I’m 18” as his Pistols audition, and think he later wrote a piece for a Cooper box set.
David Byrne said “Psycho Killer” was somewhat Alice-inspired.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:18pm Will the Sound Guy:

Thank you Austin!
  🎸 10:19pm Ellen Lovebug:

I love T. Rex. And I think glam was its own FU to the establishment and a worthy contemporary of punk
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:20pm Scott67:

To think WFMU recently had to convince some that they are Educational. Since 2pm today it have been a solid session of Anthropological, Socialological, Cultural, & Musical Education.
Which has also just happenedto delight the fuck outa me!

This is the song that The Germs would cover, when they wanted to show off.
  🎸 10:23pm Ellen Lovebug:

Every song on this album is priceless. I had virtually every Bowie album on vinyl (excluding expensive rarities), and saw him in concert 4 times. First concert I ever saw on my own without my parents

That's pretty awesome Ellen

Enjoying set while working, Ziggy dragged me to say hi
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:25pm Austin Rich:

Howdy, Aitch!
  10:25pm Heather:

It slaps. The version of this on Ziggy Stardust The Motion Picture? Omg.

Ellen, that's absolutely so cool! I was lucky that my dad took me to the Sound and Vision tour. It was Fantastic to see Bowie perform live.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:26pm Austin Rich:

For my money, THE overlooked glam band of the era was Zolar-X. I saw them once, and they KILLED. Fantastic. And they actually believed they were from another planet.
  10:26pm Androu B.:

@ Will - Glad to hear!

@Ellen Lovebug - Many years ago, one of WFMU's luminary DJs (possibly Irwin Chusid or Joe McGasko, not sure) had as a guest the founder of the 8-Track Preservation Society. Ever heard of it?
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:27pm Aitch:

Zolar X pretty wild, have to check that out
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:28pm Austin Rich:

Heather has been trying to get me into Bowie for a while, but for some reason, he has always eluded me. The song included here, and a couple others from the same album, are the only ones I've every played on my show, and know very well.
  🎸 10:29pm Ellen Lovebug:

@Heather pleased to meet another Bowie devotee. & Sound & Vision is a great song, of course! @Austin I am definitely digging the Zolar-X and glad to see you opening to Bowie. @Androu B. No but I support the cause!
Avatar 🎸 10:29pm Mr. X:

Good job, Heather! Keep at him!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:30pm Austin Rich:

Everyone makes fun of me for not liking Bowie more. I mean, I like Side B of that Low album okay, I think? (I heard it at a party once.)
  10:31pm Heather:

It's true. I have. There's so much you'd love. But I'm not going to push!

Ellen, Bowie means so much to me, it's absurd. You saw him 4 times?!?! Which tours? Seriously, that is so cool!!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:32pm Aitch:

Play the title track of Scary Monsters super loud on headphones Austin and then re-assess
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:32pm Austin Rich:

Heather and I actually discussed Bowie quite a bit on a podcast episode, and I do need to listen to more. But I'm always slow to pick up on things.

If it makes any difference: My wife loves Bowie too, and has even seen him live. I'm the odd person out.
  🎸 10:33pm Ellen Lovebug:

A glam intro wouldn't be complete without the New York Dolls! @Heather: Serious Moonlight (once), Glass Spider (twice in 2 different states), and whatever the tour was that came through Portland shortly after 2000
Avatar 🎸 10:33pm Mr. X:

Next we'll have you listening to Santana, Chicago, and Steely Dan!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:34pm Austin Rich:

Let's not get carried away, Mr. X.
Avatar 10:34pm David in California:

I recall that after Bowie released the "Low" album, Nick Lowe released an album named "Bowi" in response.
Avatar 🎸 10:34pm Mr. X:

LOL
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:34pm Austin Rich:

My mom actually loves Santana, and once said to me in all seriousness, "I didn't raise you to hate Santana!"

But really, I'm not much of a fan.
  10:34pm Heather:

Austin, I've said Low is what everyone expects you to dig immediately but my pick for you is Station to Station as an intro. Thoughts, Ellen? And Aitch, heck yessss Scary Monsters is an album that, like, i don't even have the words.

I'm not good at chat chains but Ellen!!! Holy cats, you saw the Glass Spider twice??? Amazing. I so unironically love that tour and adore the film of it!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:35pm Feldy:

I approve of raw gutteral noises in the R-n-R soup
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:35pm Aitch:

Bowie named his sone Zoe, Boland called his son Roland
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:36pm Austin Rich:

We talked a lot about Glass Spider on said podcast. Heather is a big fan.
  🎸 10:36pm Ellen Lovebug:

Sorry to say, I have to jet (I have a prior online commitment), but I will want to look up in the archives what I miss, and I will be back next week. Scary Monsters is my most-played of all Bowie albums. Yes I saw Glass Spider once with my best friends from high school in Chicago and once with my dorm roommates from Ann Arbor in Detroit
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:37pm Scott67:

Perfect soundtrack for Bean Burritos & Beer!

  10:37pm Heather:

Bye Ellen! So nice to meet you!
  🎸 10:38pm Ellen Lovebug:

<3 Hope to see you next week, @Heather!
  10:40pm Androu B.:

@Ellen Lovebug

Just so happens I'm a big Bowie fan myself (since the 70's, when I was still in grade school)! In fact, I now have his entire discography one of my hard drives. (Incidentally, my brother has an 8-track player. And I once found the Low album on 8-track, which I gave to him.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:40pm Feldy:

Zines you say?????
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:41pm Austin Rich:

Yeah! I just held a zine workshop, and the kids there all had new 'zines... and my newest one was two years old. So I just finished a new one the other day, and I was stapling and folding earlier.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:41pm Austin Rich:

One of my biggest regrets was NOT going to that Death show when they played in PDX. Big mistake on my part, and I think about it often.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:42pm Mr Fab:

I do have to admit that I’m pretty shocked that you’re not a Bowie fan, Austin! “Station to Station” is indeed rock-solid, and the song “Heroes” is without question one of the Masterpieces of the 20th Century.
Avatar 10:42pm HyperDose:

Hooligan music!
Avatar 🎸 10:43pm Mr. X:

Just watched the documentary about Death a couple of months ago. Super interesting band.
  10:43pm Androu B.:

What a nice surprise! Hello, Mr. Fab, HyperDose!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:43pm Austin Rich:

I mean, I'm not against Bowie! He's done very important work for rock and roll. But I just never got into any of his albums. There's still time, I guess, but I'm often slow on the draw.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:44pm Austin Rich:

I need to see that documentary, Mr. X! I've heard it's good.

I'll happily send out a zine to anyone who is interested! E-mail me you address, and I'll pop one in the mail:

austinrich@gmail.com
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:46pm Austin Rich:

I know I told Heather this, but: the main barrier to Bowie has been that I usually look for a sense of humor / loud guitars in a lot of my music, and I wasn't getting that vibe from Bowie. But I'm middle aged now, so maybe I'll feel different? One of these days.
Avatar 🎸 10:48pm Mr. X:

"Panic in Detroit" from Aladdin Sane has both. it's kind of punk.
  10:49pm Heather:

@Mr Fab, a confession: Heroes took a while to grow on me until I heard the not radio edit with the lines "you, you can be mean. And I, I'll drink all the time" and I was all in.

@Austin, Bowie is So Funny!! Not always but the humor is there!!
Avatar 10:49pm HyperDose:

Hey Androu! This show has been a lovely curation. And free zines to boot!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:49pm Mr Fab:

I will def take you up on that offer, Austin. And hit up Don-O, another zine-making Sheena’s DJ. He always send me his latest missives.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:49pm Austin Rich:

One of these days I'll be doing a "Bowie Obscurities" show and telling all of you, "Have you heard Bowie? I mean, REALLY listened to him?"
  10:50pm Heather:

@Austin, please don't dare leave me out of that show.
Avatar 🎸 10:51pm Mr. X:

Mumps: nice band name. I wish I had thought of that.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:52pm drowsy:

Thanks for the show Austin, gotta hit the archives.

If you're looking for a good point to start at, try his 60's material, especially little ditties like " The Laughing Gnome".
