  9:01am v k:

  9:01am Drummer Some:

Sweet of you to point that out Annie. I was actually just playing some VERY repetitive buffer music until kicking things off. Sorry for the confusion. Please DO let me know whenever you think something's amiss. (I'm always the last to know.)
  9:02am annie:

it's cool, mr drummer
  9:02am listener james from westwood:

mornin' all! looking forward to 3 hr of sonic tonic, and for once i don't have a friday deadline to fear.
  9:03am the REAL last to know:

say, wait a minute....
  9:04am glenn:

how big is the pin?
  9:05am Drummer Some:

Big ups to LJfW and tRltk! And the Glenn the merry Jokester!
  9:05am v k:

can we all agree plaid shirts r no longer 'hip' ?
  9:07am glenn:

plaid is the new black.
  9:07am Drummer Some:

Hey v k,
I'm not sure we can get past the fillibuster from the honorable member from Bellingham, Washington.
  9:09am El Thatchmo:

This reminds me of the stuff I heard on Hong Kong radio. Transporting.
  9:13am Drummer Some:

Honk Kong radio? Honk Kong radio! Do tell, El Thatchmo. When, where, why and how? Enquiring fellow listeners (and hosts) wanna know!
  9:21am Paul Sherratt:

Selection ' Dhun Poorvi ' is hypnotising the dog, Jim
  9:23am Drummer Some:

A big lick on the nose to you, Jim (and to you too Paul, good boy!)
  9:23am Aaron:

Morning Drummer!
  9:24am Drummer Some:

Coming next is my favorite tuned glass water bowls song EVAH!
  9:25am Drummer Some:

Hi there Aaron.
  9:27am Heaven:

rupert murdoch is try to get out under Shinmoedake:
  9:32am Drummer Some:

Wow, is there anything cooler than volcanic lightning?
  9:36am annie:

that is awesome!
  9:36am listener james from westwood:

  9:42am glenn:

it's good to know one's after the fact snarky remarks will be read and appreciated.
  9:45am Drummer Some:

If a snarky remark falls in the forest, does it make a sound? Oh yes it does!
  9:45am Brian in the Doghouse:

Greetings DS. I have an industrial size shovel available. A trip to Istanbul is incomplete without a visit to Lale Plak record shop. Any Mercan Dede lined up Mr Drummer?
  9:45am Brian in the Doghouse:

Greetings DS. I have an industrial size shovel available. A trip to Istanbul is incomplete without a visit to Lale Plak record shop. Any Mercan Dede lined up Mr Drummer?
  9:47am Brian in the Doghouse:

Or Kolektifistanbul?
  9:47am Drummer Some:

No Mercan Dede, but I've got some Taner Demiralp. (I just love saying that name.)
  9:47am glenn:

and why has there never been a band called the snarky remarks? seems like a natural to me.
  9:48am Brian in the Doghouse:

@ gleen There was The Boo Jum Snark, I believe
  9:49am glenn:

(pretending to be the singer from slade, whatever his name is/was) so cum on feel the snark.
  9:50am Brian in the Doghouse:

@ Glenn (the typing error!) Noddy Holder
  9:51am still b/p:

MacArthur Snark is melting in the rain...
  9:52am Brian in the Doghouse:

Beware the Jub Jub bird
  9:54am Bandersnatch:

hey now! this is some good tunes here!
  9:55am mike ret tp:

just in time for some cool indian stuff and who knows who been too long doug glad to say howdy doo
  9:56am jill:

Here's a fun read - did you know that Richie Sambora wants Bon Jovi to be like the Rolling Stones? Makes you realize how great other music is and how much popular mainstream music sucks...
  9:57am Drummer Some:

Hiya Bandersnatch, Mike (ret) tp, and Jill!
  10:03am Brian in the Doghouse:

Saw Mama Rosin last night in London. The drummer was peerless to a standard that all your listeners know as give the drummer some, Doug.
  10:06am Drummer Some:

I don't know Mama Rosin. Tell us about them. (The great Cajun accordion player Nathan Abshire does a song called "Mama Rosin" on which a 12-year-old girl (Little Yvonne LeBlanc) sings. Thrilling number.)
  10:19am Hugo:

I think I might have that Mandy Morton record. Fine thing in any case.
  10:21am Brian in the Doghouse:

Swiss band, guess they are named after the great Mr Abshires song. Young trio with what you might call a punkish attitude for the Swiss. Know their stuff, played their own songs plus Opelousas Soston. New record out now. Recommeded
  10:21am annie:

more on ATP pull-out:
  10:22am Hugo:

Yep, that's the one.
  10:22am glenn:

spike drivers singer reminds me of vashti bunyan.
  10:23am Chris:

The Cramps obviously nicked this for Kizmiaz, never heard this before..
  10:25am glenn:

is that available in the blogosphere?
  10:27am Drummer Some:

Spike Drivers:
  10:30am Drummer Some:

The band currently playling is from Fiji, by the way.
  10:37am chris:

Am I being incredibly stupid here, where on virtual earth is the Spike Drivers DL link, I've tried pushing all the buttons
  10:37am Bob:

Rockin' set here!
  10:41am Bandersnatch:

i can't find the spike drivers on cd baby or anywhere - wtf
  10:43am Z:

Doug is the drug I was thinking of.
  10:44am mark:

i concur, great set ... great show.
  10:45am Alex in Ill:

Mama Rosin is from Switzerland?? Dang!! I actually thought they were from Louisanna. I first heard some of their tunes on "Bob's Scratchy Records" then downloaded their release "Tu As Perdu Ton Chemin" from eMusic.
  10:51am seang:

there's a Henry Miller library around there too , I think
  10:51am wozard of iz singers:

i'm hiiiiiiiiigh uh hunh hiiigh un hunh high, high on big sur. high on big sur.
  10:52am Paul Sherratt:

That bridge & big ocean
  10:54am Drummer Some:

Seang, I was just by the Henry Miller library (a bookstore and performance space, really) this past Saturday. A bit too fetishistic a place for my tastes, but still full of deep spirit and wonder.
  10:55am Carmichael:

Good morning all.
  10:55am mark:

have a copy of ginsberg's "first blues" lp - classic stuff
  10:56am wozard of iz singers:

turns out i know the former bass player from the spike drivers - richard "papa k" keelan. he moved from detroit to stratford and started perth county conspiracy.
  10:56am Hugo:

Re. Spike Drivers: Follow the link in the second comment ...
  10:56am Drummer Some:

Something from First Blues is cued up next!
  10:57am glenn:

i have to out myself as the wozard of iz singers.
  10:57am Drummer Some:

Good morning Carmichael!

Here's that Spike Drivers link again:
  10:59am david:

loving this. never really heard any of his recordings. just that thanksgiving thing.
  10:59am Carmichael:

I missed a tuned water glass performance?!? Please give me a reason to live.
  11:03am listener james from westwood:

Doug, not sure if it was you, but I heard "Howl" in its entirety one very late night on WFMU sometime in the 90s. First time I'd heard Ginsberg read the whole poem.
  11:03am annie:

allen ginsberg singing reminds me of the tunes we would make up when we were kids
  11:04am Carmichael:

Hopefully, you'll follow this with some Burl Ives.
  11:06am Drummer Some:

Burl Ives named names before HUAC. He is not welcome here.
  11:07am another old man:

First heard Bird Brain on 'FMU back in the day
  11:07am Carmichael:

No kidding?? That rat bastard! I'm chucking out all of my Big Rock Candy Mountain" 45s as soon as I get home.
  11:08am seang:

Spank it!
  11:08am seang:

  11:09am david:

  11:09am Hugo:

Blissful thing:

Mine has a different cover, but otherwise identical, I think.

I had planned to see Ginsberg, but contracted an illness which made me look like something out of a freak movie, so I stayed at home (to avoid contagion). Too bad.
  11:09am Drummer Some:

I'm guessing Scott McDowell ain't playing this track just now.
  11:10am still b/p:

Attention up, volume down.
  11:10am Paul Sherratt:

This is a real Ginsberg gain set ( and match ) Mr drummer Some.

Thank you ... !
  11:14am Hugo:

Same thing, but different cover:

Still as blissful ...
  11:21am jill:

Love this track - it is ear candy.
  11:21am Listener Bill:

This Wadada Leo Smith stuff is very nice too.
  11:23am Drummer Some:

Like a big beautiful bell ringing sweetly.
  11:34am Merv:

Crazy Percussion on this Schlippenbach! Love it-- makes the trio sound so much fuller...
  11:37am Drummer Some:

Paul Lovens is rattling the pots and pans.
  11:38am Bandersnatch:

thanks for de link!
  11:46am Ike:


You weren't on last Fri. I presume you were at a convention of worldwide drummers scheming to create a version of Stuxnet that'll sabotage the world's drum machines and then selling it as a job-creation plan?
  11:49am Drummer Some:

When our master, Bennink, blows the whistle only we can hear, world drumstruction will ensue.
  12:03pm Bandersnatch:

thanks drummer!
  12:04pm Drummer Some:

You are most welcome. Thanks to all you commentators!
