Matt LeMay is a writer, musician, coder and generally thinky/talky dude.

Listener comments!

  9:03am Steve L:

Dear God, Flipper opens another work day for me. Certainly the end times are near.
  9:03am Cheri Pi:

G'mornin Jason and the rest of you!
  9:05am jason:

makin' the end times happy times
  9:05am Cheri Pi:

Steve L.., I was thinking the same!
  9:08am Elwyn:

Gosh I love that GbV song so much!
  9:10am Cheri Pi:

Joe Preston for heavy president.
  9:11am Tom:

Mornin! Diggin it all.
  9:15am dc pat:

Hi. Bye.
  9:19am BSI:

This Hammill teeters pretty close to the sound of Robert Calvert's early solo concept LPs. Good stuff.
  9:26am joe:

hey jason, let's write a song about a worker in one of converse's factories and apply to record it at "Rubber Tracks," their coming culture factory. or maybe a cover of "richard cory" (u know, by simon & garfunkel)? discuss! sincerely, joe
  9:31am Cheri Pi:

I think the word needs to get out that Nike has owned Converse since 2003, I stand behind this song idea.
  9:38am jaw:

Yep, terminal 5 sucks
  9:38am dc pat:

wait what did King Kahn do now?
  9:39am jason:

dc pat i thought you were leavin. he played in another band and made another record called "amon ra bless america"
  9:40am Robert:

Which was nearly the title of your show: "Wonderful Subdivision", or "Drunks With Guns"?
  9:41am jason:

hey Robert, it was almost called "Wonderful Subdivision". would yall've rather heard that song at thestart each week?
  9:42am Robert:

Sorry, just streamed in, didn't hear it.
  9:42am dc pat:

Oh is THAT all? yeah, busy today so in and out.
  9:44am Robert:

Is it like 'Subdivisions" by Rush, only more wonderful?
  9:45am Tom:

Be cool or be cast out
  9:46am Talk's Creep:

Digging the black and yellow color scheme here. wu tang colors! and yes, you can sell out in 2010. unless you're in the tea party. then you're safe.
  9:46am Robert:

That's what I say to the stuff in my refrigerator.
  9:49am Aaron:

flying Lotus - NICEEEEE
  9:57am Bicklespume:

Time to get pregnant with Lucky Dragons all around...

fistula glory!
  10:03am joe:

i luke may be taken... but maybe he's down w/ surrogate fatherhood!
  10:12am Small Key:

If there's no artistic and personal integrity going into it, there's no integrity that's going to show up later either.
  10:12am bw:

so it really art vs content or ads vs content!
  10:15am Rodney:

Someone please post a link to the Rollins video discussed here.
  10:16am dc pat:

yes music = music; which to me is the foundation of wfmu. Stravinsky and Howlin Wolf and the minutemen are all in the same boat to me.
  10:17am tim from champaign:

Is there a risk of brand sponsorship doing a bait and switch? What happens when Scion figures out that having Pierced Arrows and The Spits playing at their sponsored fest doesn't sell more cars?
  10:17am bw:

dc pat - right on!
  10:19am Small Key:

Contracts tend to last much longer than the themes of any one ad campaign.
  10:21am Talk's Creep:

some of this stuff makes me feel like music is supposed to be approached in a library with bad lighting and serious faces. aren't daily routines typically invaded by the upsetting, inconvenient or disruptive? i feel like art is more reflective of the day-to-day, not escapist
  10:21am Liz B.:

Here's a link to the Henry Rollins vid:
  10:21am dc pat:

I hated Sandanista when I fist got it. Now it's one of my faves but that has nothing to do with how much I paid for it. That I don't get.
  10:24am dc pat:

what about not caring if people like your music?
  10:26am dc pat:

can we get a link to the article he's talking about too?
  10:26am dc pat:

damn just saw the links...
  10:27am Tom:

I liked Albini's comment about John Peel: "He said something once that I thought was really profound: He said that no one would bother making a record and sending it to him if they thought it was shitty. Obviously, to the people making those records, they are important. If he doesn't get it as a listener, if he didn't like it in some way, that's his fault, not the fault of the people who did something important to them."
  10:28am Small Key:

As if bands that already eat crappy food on tour can now be supported by those same companies. Bring on McDonald's records. Micky D Raps.
  10:29am joe:

this has been very illuminating, thank you jason & matt!
  10:29am Lulu:

myspace is tacky.
  10:29am rosh:

i respect bands/artists that make it difficult to find and even enjoy their music.There's nothing snobbish about having control over your music distro especially in this day & age of high accessibility.
  10:30am bw:

great segment
  10:30am dc pat:

I agree rosh. Great discussion though.
  10:30am Cecile Cloutier:

dang I missed it. But I'll catch it as archives. Working at home is cool. Pierced Arrows!
  10:31am Tom:

bw come home, mom n I miss you
  10:32am bw:

tom: never comin back!
  10:34am Bicklespume:

thought provoking conversation----not unimportant things to dwell on---- There will always be those in any age that consume music more than listen to it for what it is, with deeper feeling, and so forth, and those that will always feel music or bands/artists are simply adjuncts to their lifestyle, a sort of ephemeral accessory to what they wish to project themselves to be to X, at some particular time... This topic is easy to roll off into so many other vectors! Talks Cheap...Respect...!
  10:35am rosh:

totally great discussion. nothing like a good old "the new medium is killing our old ways of music" discourse to set us nerds off @ 10 am. can't wait to read this Village Voice article.
  10:38am Cheri Pi:

Love that My Teenage Stride lick.
  10:39am jason:

@Small Key: there are some bands that fuel their vans on discarded grease from mcdonald's
  10:52am rosh:

@jason:yeah but there's a huge difference b/w a band taking corporate waste(literally) & converting that into free fuel VS. corporations financing a band's release/tour/career. That said, Mickey D's DID put out a sick flexi...
  10:52am jason:

...should i play some Neon Indian???
  10:57am Dylan:

Another shoe-music tidbit from behind enemy lines: When I catered the Public Enemy "Vans House" opening party all the artists had to give a shout out to Vans. Chuck D: "Vans since 1966, I can get down with that!"
  11:05am Cheri Pi:

NOOOOO! Play Indian Jewelry instead.
  11:06am henry rollins:

what happened to me?
  11:07am oh just relax:

Henry Rollins > The Cake Shop
  11:10am BetterJudgment:

...you should probably play some "Who's Got The 10 1/2?"
  11:10am jason:

imagine this song backwards...
  11:10am henry rollins:

grammy award > henry rollins
  11:11am henry rollins:

todd p > henry rollins
  11:11am Cecile Cloutier:

Henry, I always call you "Hammering Hank" in my daily life. I think it fits.
  11:13am Cheri Pi:

Is it me or did anyone else get an 'FMU magnet set in the mail?
  11:13am God:

henry rollins is not god > henry rollins is god
  11:14am Tom:

On my xmas list: http://www.sternsmusic.com/disk_info.php?id=3218462
  11:14am Cecile Cloutier:

CHeri, I did! I was so excited. I put it with my FOTC magnets.
  11:15am dc pat:

ah, I don't think that video's any big deal. That's Henry, either love him or leave him. His job is to make you feel uncomfortable.
  11:16am dc pat:

so now let's hear Rise Above
  11:17am Tom:

Yeah, Henry has been at it like that for years. And lifting weights.
  11:18am Cecile Cloutier:

And telling some very funny stories.
  11:19am Cheri Pi:

I want to put the Rocket ship magnet on my car, but I'm afraid the jealous neighbors will steal it.
  11:22am Tom:

something else just made my xmas list!
  11:24am Cecile Cloutier:

Is love an emoticon?


Yes. Yes, it is.
  11:28am Cheri Pi:

It's my favourite emoticon!
  11:31am Tom:

Rollins biceps cannot be emoticonized.
  11:32am holland oats:

i <3 emotion
  11:35am rosh:

ugh,just saw the rollins thing.the woman he's reeming out is totally cool,smart,hard working punk woman.He totally attacked the least trust fund hipster kid there. i like rollins generally but damn,he's showing his knee jerk reactionary paranoia in that vid.
  11:38am holland oats:

@rosh - link?
  11:38am rosh:

here's one: http://stereogum.com/566652/henry-rollins-scolds-young-elitist-hipters-at-the-cake-shop/video/
  11:40am dc pat:

rosh: I agree but she also defends herself ok against a pretty intimidating old fart.
  11:44am Marcel:

Great set today. Perfect for the NY rainy scene
  11:44am Cheri Pi:

This is the futuristic music I was promised in all of those Jetsons episodes.
  11:47am holland oats:

@rosh - thnx - rollins, what a needledick douche - if only 'damaged' wasn't one of my favorite records of all time
  11:49am Dylan:

  11:51am jeff:

hey jason, hey matt. i've been in class all morning and still am, but i have made an imaginary version of this conversation in my mind and it is full of witty quips and pointed observations! in that order.
  11:57am rosh:

dc pat: totally, but it's not about her reaction,it's that he got in her space,tells them to sshhh,and later says "counting down to where the chick mouths off". Love BF & even had pleasant exchanges with him but none of that excuses him being,as holland oats so eloquently stated, a needledick douche.
  11:57am Cecile Cloutier:

Is that Steve Cauthen, the jockey?
  11:58am Cecile Cloutier:

wow, that's a good little song.
  11:58am dc pat:

well like I said, take him or leave him. This ain't nothing new for him.
  12:00pm Cheri Pi:

Double Joe Preston today!
  12:00pm rosh:

dc pat: sadly, i know this. i i take what i like & leave the rest. have a good one,everyone!
