  11:56am listener 108365:

in the early 70s there was record by a band called, i think, the Masked Marauders, and the liner notes implied that it was a collaboration of the beatles and dylan but their names couldnt be printed for legal reasons. what genre of pseudo- beatles is that?
  11:57am seang:

what about that beatles barking song?
  12:08pm paul:

I heard that Dylan, George Harrison and some other guys recorded as the "Traveling Wilburys" or something like that. That's just a rumor, right?
  12:13pm paul:

Is that Lou Reed with the Jades?
  12:28pm paul:

Bad people make good music poster child: Phil Spector.

Try buying a Barbi Benton LP at Reckless. You will feel judged.
  12:46pm drr:

Record I bought because I heard it in the store: The Cardigans, "Life"
  12:49pm paul:

Heard the Housemartins playing at HMV store in London and bought it. Still one of my favorite bands.
  12:52pm paul:

This show is depressing me. Because everything you're saying is true.
  12:54pm drr:

Wait, Traveling Wilburys is real? I thought they just played a couple of exclusive live shows.
  12:55pm Jay:

books ect
  12:56pm seang:

how about seymour in ghost world?
  12:56pm paul:

Great movie record store scene: Clockwork Orange
  9:16pm Peter:

Big Star in the Memphis pantheon, Alex being a link in the chain, and whatnot.

Yes, I agree, but suggest the early mass exposure to Big Star came via Creem magazine. And the earlier mass exposure to "The Letter" is of course primary.

Careful about thinking they were Memphis's second generation though. They're probably the fourth, if you count The 5 Royales/Willie Mitchell period as one, Stax as two, and late Stax (second Bar Kays, for instance) as three.

Now we're at the juncture between highly produced pop and New Wave.

JMO, naturally.
  11:18pm will:

I don't read enough about the cosmic Roger McGuinn-->Alex Chilton connection.
