  8:58am Drummer Some:

  9:02am Drummer Some:

Starting off today's show with the greatest Mexican farfisa 'n' fuzz bands evah!
  9:04am annie:

ts, it will be so nice to hear your golden voice emanating from texas
  9:05am annie:

will you be setting up an email notice, soon, for your current show? fb feeds travel too fast for me to notice your announcements
  9:07am David Herskovits:

Great morning to you Doug. Brooklyn misses you and thank heavens we get at least little some from Pittsburgh.
  9:09am Drummer Some:

David H! So great to see (er, read) you! We have a beautiful Target Margin poster hanging in our kitchen.
  9:09am david:

You're obviously not a black metal fan, Doug. That's not too unpronounceable.
  9:13am charlie:

oh, man, I love Los Holy's
  9:14am David Herskovits:

Aw shucks. Believe me, when I am inside a building on Friday morning, I am with you! We miss Lincoln's fastball.
  9:15am Drummer Some:

I like metal of all the colors of the rainbow. I have a dream ...
...when we allow freedom ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children, black metal kids and rockers, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old spiritual: Cradle of Filth Rules!
  9:16am Randy:

Morning everyone!
  9:17am Drummer Some:

David H,
Lincoln's lost a little on her fastball. It's her knuckle curve that's wowing the scouts down here.

Hey Randy!
  9:19am Randy:

Zander's fastball on the other hand......
  9:20am Jack:

G'morning Doug et al...
  9:21am Drummer Some:

I don't know about you, but Blyleven nevered seemed Hall of Famish to me.
  9:22am Bob:

Doug: something about the "Roasted or Fried" groove has me waiting for your voice to interrupt it--it sounds so much like the kind of thing you like to use for talkover music between sets.
  9:22am Merv:

Bob's got a point there...
  9:24am Drummer Some:

What an interesting observation! I will have to listen again and consult my inner talkover selector.
  9:24am Drummer Some:

Allooo Jack.
  9:26am texas scott:

shake hands with danger is still a work in progress.
i'll facebook ya when more deets come in.

  9:29am Drummer Some:

A little excursion to the island nation of Japan coming up next. But first, one more KILLER track, from Tito Puente.
  9:32am Paul Sherratt:

I was thinking of getting a coffee going on the stove - but I'm not sure I need one after this Tito Puente !
  9:35am trs:

Ahh, a feed that doesn't choke. Pasted for sometime. (Thanks to Annie and TScott)
  9:36am trs:

Some time, later.. soon. Some time.
  9:36am david:

  9:40am annie:

  9:41am David Herskovits:

Heya Randy! I am intermittent this am but so happy to see you.
  9:41am texas scott:

no,thank you,annie and sometimes trs
  9:42am annie:

... and so added to the feed, thanks so much TS!
  9:44am still b/p:

Sections of the Tito track brought one of Mulatu Astatke's most often heard tracks to mind. Any linkage in there ennywhar?
  9:45am Drummer Some:

still b/p:
Found this online:

"Astatke left Ethiopia in 1958, aged 15, to study at Lindisfarne College, near Wrexham in Wales. “I was supposed to be an aeronautical engineer, but then I realised I had to be a musician – my parents were not at all happy.” In the holidays he would go to London and hang out with older jazz musicians like Jamaican-born Joe Herriot. “There was a wonderful club in Soho called the Metro. Quite a lot of Nigerians and Ghanaians were there, playing their music. I used to sometimes sit in playing congas. Even then, I thought, why doesn’t anybody know Ethiopian music?”
He trained at Trinity College in London and then Berklee in Boston, before coming to New York, where he saw Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie at the jazz clubs, and the likes of Tito Puente at the mythic Palladium Club."
  9:51am Drummer Some:

The mad geniuses of Shibusashirazu are NOT making the wildest music in this set. Keep listening...
  9:56am Hugo:

More or less the Shibusashirazu signature tune, this one. Ive seen them in action which really is essential to appreciate them fully. Thrilling visual experience, to say the least.
  9:57am Merv:

Can't say how much I appreciate getting turned on to this Cicala Mvta album-- definitely in my top ten new-to-me albums from last year...
  9:58am Drummer Some:

We all have Hugo to thank, for he turned me onto Shibusashirazu—and sent me a 3-disc live set. Triple wow! Thanks Brother H.
  10:00am Drummer Some:

I provided a link to a page about the Cicala Mvta record. To save you the trouble, here is the meatiest part of the description:

"Chindon is one of the stranger musical combinations in the world. It comes from both the street music and avant garde jazz scenes in Japan, defying the conformity of tradition and yet reveling in the connections to it. This brass/woodwinds based music merges jazz, klezmer, brass band, Japanese folk (and anything else it can get its hands on), into a wonderfully twisted and always surprising hybrid, unique unto itself."
  10:05am Christopher:

loving all this Japanese stuff!
  10:05am Hugo:

Yep, I got that one at the concert I attended. Love this Japanese set. The Japanese take it as far as you think it will go, and then one step further.
  10:08am Christopher:

damn did this guy study in the delta?
  10:09am Paul Sherratt:

I was hoping there'd be a welcome play for The Fujii !!
  10:10am Drummer Some:

You're all over it, Christopher. This guy Fuji was long a busker, playing his lap steel on the streets of London!
  10:10am charlie:

cool set going here!
  10:11am Hugo:

Rovery titre of this one ...
  10:15am Paul Sherratt:

Paul Shearsmith was also an architect - worked on a local school in Nantwich, Cheshire.And what BBC radio airplay Fujii had was directly as a result of this GTDS programme ..
  10:16am Carmichael:

Good morning and happy payday, everyone.
  10:21am Dickdong:

Hi Paul Sherratt. We've had this converstion before. I was a student at Leeds School of Architecture at the same time as Paul. We are still in touch. See the Echo City website to see what he's been up to.
  10:21am Drummer Some:

Hiya Carmichael, I (still) need a job before I can git a payday.
  10:22am Drummer Some:

Well Paul and Dickdong, give my best to Mr. Shearsmith!
  10:23am Paul Sherratt:

Dick - thanks for reminder about the website - couldn't remember it !


Got any Wilf Carter ( Montana Slim ) to hand ? - he's another Ice Worm man !
  10:28am Christopher:

love that old twangy guitar tone. so delicious.
  10:28am Carmichael:

Sorry for the unintentional dig Doug. Perhaps you still have a GubMint payday?
And if you got any of that ol' Dick Curless hangin' around, that would be muy bueno.
  10:31am Drummer Some:

No sweat Carmichael. It's my own damn fault for gittin' laid off. Dick Curless isn't handy. Hope this Bill Carter is scratching your itch.
  10:32am Carmichael:

My God, a voice double! Thanks Doug.
  10:40am Fujitsu the Speaking Fax Machine:

G'day Mr Some. Enjoying the tunes. Could this be the year for the big rock'n roll push? Rockabilly, Hillbilly call it what you will.
  10:44am Paul Sherratt:

Doug 'n all,
Wilf Carter with his nesting worms song>
  10:47am Drummer Some:

Oy oy Fujitsu,
Yes, let 2011 be the Year of Twang.

Ok, peeps, let's see who can find the most "worm" songs. Meet back here in 15 minutes.
  10:48am Carmichael:

I just know the Glow Worm Cha Cha.
  10:50am annie:

Chinese year of the worm?
  10:51am Bob:

It doesn't have to be a worm. After the boogying ice worm and the waltzing jitterbug, any extremely small dancing creature will do.
  10:52am Carmichael:

"There was a little Spanish flea ...."
  10:53am Drummer Some:

  11:07am Drummer Some:

This next one, by Tony Iglio, is a real mystery. I posted it on this week's Motherlode.

  11:12am david:

no ohio players on that worm list?
  11:13am Paul Sherratt:

Is this the chap ?

Ice worms, Iglios ...
  11:14am charlie:

nice. just downloaded the tony iglio.
  11:15am Drummer Some:

Can you unearth any additional info on it? I haven't found much. Iglio was (is?) an Italian saxophonist, but I don't know much more...
  11:18am Hugo:

Don't do this at home:
  11:24am Hugo:

I told you so:
  11:25am Fujitsu the Speaking Fax Machine:

Does Mory Kante come from Guinea?
  11:27am Drummer Some:

Yup. Born in Kissidougou.
  11:27am Hugo:

It's a Syliphone! No more needs to be said.
  11:28am Fujitsu the Speaking Fax Machine:

One Pound and one shilling used to make one guinea. That was the rate that racehorses were sold.
  11:29am Fujitsu the Speaking Fax Machine:

Is there a Sensiblephone label?
  11:30am Paul Sherratt:

Gorgeous tele ...
  11:32am Drummer Some:

Thanks Paul, that's the one! That record is available here:
  11:33am Randy:

  11:34am raissa:

  11:38am Paul Sherratt:

There's this :
  11:38am Drummer Some:

Yes, Randy, yes. Is it possible to be depressed when hearing this?
  11:41am Hugo:

Nice one, Paul. Here are some more favourites:
  11:42am Fujitsu the Speaking Fax Machine:

Good work. But what about bespectacled types?
  11:47am Fujitsu the Speaking Fax Machine:

Mr Some, got downwind of this one from the brothers at Honest Jons?
  11:48am monica:

lovely soundtrack for all the big fat snowflakes floating over new york now. onward and upward, doug!
  11:48am Lisa from Brooklyn:

Feels like a reunion here Doug, Randy, David H. Great music to work to here in NYC and watching the flakes fall. Yep, getting a lot done! Glad we getr some Pittsburgh in NY!
  11:49am Paul Sherratt:

>>But what about bespectacled types

Fujitsu, I wouldn't be where I am today, without them !
  11:49am Drummer Some:

Hey thanks Monica. Light snow earlier but now positively sunshiney here in the 'Burgh.
  11:50am Fujitsu the Speaking Fax Machine:

I see what you mean!
  11:50am trs:

Great music combined wonderfully as ever. Thanks Doug!
  11:50am Drummer Some:

As ever, a pleasure!
  11:51am Fujitsu the Speaking Fax Machine:

I'm with trs. You've set the bar high for this year already.
  11:53am Paul Sherratt:

>>You've set the bar high for this year already.

My thought too !
  11:53am Hugo:

>>But what about bespectacled types

I might find the door without them ...
  11:54am Paul Sherratt:

The Back Door, Hugo ?
  11:55am Hugo:

Jeez, I'm looking for this one and what do I see?

Look for "Diom Futa".
  11:55am Drummer Some:

Forget setting the bar, let's step to it. Drinks on me!
  11:57am Hugo:

The side doors are the toughest ...
  11:57am still b/p:

Drinks with an ice worm in the bottom of the bottle?
  11:59am Fujitsu the Speaking Fax Machine:

What's the difference twixt a buffalo & a bison?
  12:00pm Fujitsu the Speaking Fax Machine:

You can't rollerskate in a buffalo herd.
  12:04pm Paul Sherratt:

Show 3251 is beautiful sight, Hugo.

Warren Lee, not lacking in confidence was he !
