I moved away from Western MA in the late 80s and lost touch with the music that was happening in the Baystate, so this should be entertaining.

  5:11pm
comeawaywithemd:

Other people came from DC to Boston for college, like Geoff Farina and Mary Timony
  5:12pm
comeawaywithemd:

DC math rock gets remembered/a section on the NORTH AMERIC AN MATH ROCK wikipedia but not its influence/permutations in Boston
  5:12pm
mb:

Listening from Greenville, SC
lovin’ these tunes!
  5:12pm
comeawaywithemd:

YES THE PEOPLE CAN HAVE JUST A LITTLE BIT OF WESTERN MASS AS A TREAT
  5:13pm
comeawaywithemd:

Boston did its own thing--mutating forms, conventions....resisted easy categorization
  5:13pm
comeawaywithemd:

so sounds there are interconnected and constellated but often end up sounding sound entirely singular (like Karate)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:14pm
lazy rider:

Hoover and all related bands on Dischord and offshoot labels, Crown Hate Ruin, and Lovitt, Maximillian Colby, Sleepy Time Trio.. oh man, I've got my week of listening to plan out revisiting university days!
  5:14pm
em:

Did
  5:14pm
comeawaywithemd:

math rock, emo, and post hardcore are very constellated sonic territories in Boston
  5:14pm
phat in lincoln:

What I remember of Western MA in the 80s was that a lot of the Boston scene got heard there. It was really nice. Northampton was a great place.
  5:15pm
comeawaywithemd:

In my last broadcast I played some other bands that also fit in here: Karate, Glans, Victory at Sea, and Wicked Farleys

Been looking forward to this show since it was announced. Caught your your last show on the archives. Big fan of Geoff Farina fan here. Hoping SS & Karate will make another appearance.
  5:15pm
phat in lincoln:

Oh man, I forgot about Karate. They got a lot of play here in the hinterlands.
  5:16pm
comeawaywithemd:

No Geoff Farina in this one sorrrrry we double dipped last tiiiime
  5:16pm
comeawaywithemd:

Thanks for being here, Fishtown Mike!
  5:17pm
comeawaywithemd:

I was informed someone back in the day saw a show that was Helium, New Radiant Storm King, Dirt Merchants and....
  5:17pm
comeawaywithemd:

EVERCLEAR before they got famous
  5:18pm
phat in lincoln:

@comeawaywithemd wow
  5:18pm

ledzeppelinsucks:

Sounds terrific. I got this bird gruel I made. It is cat treats, Sesame Street cereal, donut chunks, rice, marshmallows, dog food and corn flakes. I slapped it together and dumped it near the crow perch area. The crows have gone nuts. Some were fighting with pecking and scratching. Making more.

MORE OF MY LECTURE SINCE YALL ARE SO QUIEEEET
  5:21pm
comeawaywithemd:

Mathachusetts post-rock ppl were not mathematical scientists, nor were they trying to create MATHY sounding music
  5:21pm
ledzeppelinsucks:

There were bands in Southern CA that sounded like this around 1992.

This show will definitely be in heavy-rotation on my archive-listening playlist!
  5:21pm

I was at that show ( nrsk, helium et al.) it was for the Loud Music Fest.
killer show
  5:21pm
olivia:

Math rock was a big scene at my college station so this is bringing on a lot of nostalgia
  5:21pm
comeawaywithemd:

they were largely art students, who were more inspired by experimental music than calculus
  5:22pm
comeawaywithemd:

they were tired of grunge and hardcore
  5:22pm
Leela:

What I remember is that one night in 1993 Lee Fisher put "Spiderland" on at a party at Terence Burke's house and a year later there were math rock bands everywhere.
  5:22pm
comeawaywithemd:

they wanted to make "surprising, interesting, dynamic" music, quoting Michael Hutchins here
  5:22pm

My first punk rock show was in Northampton right before I moved away in the American Legion hall by the high school. Turns out members of Sebadoh (who I was right behind in school), Dinosaur Jr., and Unsane were playing or in the crowd. Lol.
  5:24pm
josh:

RAise your hand if you were at the famous Pizza/don cab show
  5:24pm
comeawaywithemd:

So a lot of these bands are different combinations of a lot of the same people. Paul Joyce is in 5 of these bands, Dan McCarthy is on four, etc
  5:24pm
comeawaywithemd:

I wanna go to the famous Pizza/Don Cab show
  5:24pm
ledzeppelinsucks:

Victims Family vs Sonic Youth.

This tune is dedicated to josh
  5:24pm
phat in lincoln:

@Leela that is awesome. That album had a similar effect here in Nebraska! Lol
  5:25pm
phat in lincoln:

I'm really digging this set.
  5:26pm
comeawaywithemd:

I want to talk to you more about that later, Leela! Hiiiii <3
  5:26pm
josh:

Helms!
  5:26pm
comeawaywithemd:

So since I am also highlighting women in Boston music shortly, want to point out because this set is very boy heavy but sound boy heavier than it actually is
  5:27pm
comeawaywithemd:

Skinner Pilot featured Elizabeth Sharp on bass
  5:27pm
comeawaywithemd:

She also played drums in New Radiant Storm King and had a solo thing called Ill Ease
  5:28pm
comeawaywithemd:

Helms features Tina McCarthy (nee Helms) on bass guitar
  5:28pm
Leela:

Just speaking as a person who was going to shows back then, not a musician, there were TONS of amazing women in Boston making music in this time.
  5:29pm
nate dogg:

the guys from Pizza worked evenings at Chippendales
  5:29pm
comeawaywithemd:

Yes and we are going to listen to only a fraction of them today but it is a very sick fractionnnnn
  5:30pm
comeawaywithemd:

Chippendales seems like a great employer for the Hottest Guys in the Galaxy

comeawaywithemd:

And yes I am sure that Spiderland spawned mathy post-hardcore bands everywhere!!! But if you read the NORTH AMERICAN MATH ROCK PAGE it's just DC and California
and every time I edit it some jerk deletes in

Also if you want to hear some mathy, noisy, experimental post-rock music with a powerful vocalist who is not a dude being made nowwwww. check out my favorite album of 2021: credentials.bandcamp.com...
  5:35pm
comeawaywithemd:

oh yeaaaah
all six minutes of this for the people
  5:36pm
comeawaywithemd:

So I should have said: Milkmoney featured Denise Monaghan who was also in the only Boston riot grrl band, Cheesecake
  5:36pm
Leela:

and Seana! My housemate in the Syrup USA era, in a spectacular and very illegal, haunted apartment building on Boylston St.
  5:36pm
comeawaywithemd:

The band was short-lived, however, because there wasn't a lot of need for that movement in Boston and Denise felt like sadness resonated more with her than anger
  5:38pm
comeawaywithemd:

When I began this research I thought the 90s Boston scene must have been so empowering to women due to women in bands there in the 80s like Kim Deal, Kristin Hersh, and early bands of Thalia Zedek
  5:38pm
olivia:

All these band names making me hungry
I’ve decided I’m ordering pizza after
Wish I had cheesecake too but won’t be able to get that
  5:38pm
Leela:

Cheesecake kept going for a long time after she left - they got really good by the end! I designed a tshirt for them, which I totally forgot until a friend sent me a photo of herself wearing it and I was like, Wow neat shirt where'd that come from, and she was like YOU, ding dong, you drew it.

oh i was not looking...i have a milkmoney album ("wheelie") it's a good bit more "poppy" than that track

Margaret Fuller of Cambridge is widely considered the first female public intellectual and wrote/edited amongst the great (male) Transcendalist writers we are taught about
  5:40pm

Anyone hear of a band called “Run for tin” out of Boston I think?
  5:41pm
comeawaywithemd:

Massachusetts actually has a long and strong history of empowering women, including women who lived independently in "Boston marriages," etc

I played Juneau, which Marc Orleans was also in, in the last broadcast
  5:50pm
comeawaywithemd:

There are much heavier and noisier Dirt Merchants song and they are very good
  5:50pm
comeawaywithemd:

But I wanted this set to be as hot and erotic is possible
  5:50pm
comeawaywithemd:

So it is all about ladies demanding what they want and need and being HEAVY

Any “Turkish Delight?”
