  3:01pm PMD:

  3:01pm Cecile:

  3:02pm anne:

Scott! Jahdan!
  3:02pm dc pat:

Hey the Flaming Lips!! .....oh.
  3:03pm CheriPi:

I love this song-it brings me back to a more innocent time.
  3:03pm TJ:

This song rules
  3:04pm Richard from Venezuela:

Greetings scott.
  3:05pm Cecile:

hi, annie.
  3:05pm Scott:

Hey everyone! What julia! said -- hey julia! You too!
  3:06pm Mary Wing:

Lost the stream again for a moment. Interwebs are crabby today?
  3:07pm βrian:

It's Joe Lieberman, I tell you – messing with the switch.
  3:08pm BSI:

Joe Lieberman can't reach the switch, I betcha.
  3:09pm Cecile:

I don't know why not, he seems good at switching. Sides at least.
  3:09pm βrian:

He can if he borrows Sarko's shoes.
  3:10pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

getting back to psychedelia feels right to me
  3:14pm glenn:

me thinks the hoof and mouth sinfonia should perform "i might like you better if we slept together' at this years marathon wrap party.
  3:16pm Mary Wing:

Never Say Never was already covered by Bethany, either last year or the year before.
  3:17pm glenn:

i missed it.
  3:19pm don:

word life, scott.
  3:20pm dc pat:

I think some one should cover You Only Live Twice please. Scott, get to work...
  3:22pm Yair Yona:

this is nice. i like.
  3:26pm dc pat:

if Fender products are not being used by the Handclappers, I'll eat my guitar.
  3:35pm Yair Yona:

geez. I included the Aguaturbia's in my next Sonar radio show. what are the odds?
  3:41pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I am sleepy
  3:41pm Cecile:

we were talking about Sparks on Clay's comment board.
  3:42pm Handsome Harry:

Aplomb a-plenty thus far. Loving every minute of it.
  3:46pm danny:

You wanna whole lotta love?
  3:51pm VCS3:

More Lumpy Gravy- Only the water is dark and murky! Billy the Mountain
  3:54pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

this Seth Price is really cool headtrip music
  3:59pm Carmichael:

I'm in love with Skeeter Davis, if only because of her name.
  4:00pm dc pat:

Isaac Hayes = talk about head trip...
  4:01pm danny:

you need coolin',baby I'm not foolin'
  4:07pm JCJ:

Anthrax: long my Valentine's Day theme song.
  4:08pm fleep:

Sour sweat is indicative of a poor diet.
  4:10pm danny:

gonna send ya back to schoolin'
  4:10pm dc pat:

Anthrax got me through many a breakup.
  4:10pm autodidactic:

Is Clay Pigeon still there?!?
  4:11pm dc pat:

huh, production on Damaaged Goods and Magic Man is oddly similar...
  4:12pm Yair Yona:

and they all remind me of the Damned's first album.
  4:12pm fleep:

Gang of Four Chambered Heart
  4:12pm danny:

way,way down inside-gonna give ya every inch on my....
  4:14pm dc pat:

I haven't seen Go4 on this tour but I heard they sucked. I saw them last time around and the were truly rippin.
  4:17pm still b/p:

One association with Magic Man is very period appropriate/reinforcing: I'd hear it the radio of the customized vans I had to move into the garage at an auto dealership's closing time.
  4:17pm BSI:

from Rippin to Suck is quite a plummet.
  4:17pm ADL:

And then, suddenly, a switch was flipped and I liked Heart!!!
  4:18pm BSI:

Definitely not Joe Lieberman on a step-stool...
  4:19pm dc pat:

I'm only reporting what I was told. I saw the orig line up--not the case at the last gig here.
  4:22pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

hell, I was turned on by the Isaac Hayes!
  4:30pm Marmalade Kitty:

Damaged Goods! easily Gang of Four best song
  4:31pm Marmalade Kitty:

..musically anyhow!
  4:35pm Marmalade Kitty:

..actually, I don't necessarily agree with myself there..? great band!
  4:35pm still b/p:

Was at a Roy Orbison press conference once. Incredibly quiet manner and seemed heavily self-conscious. Excruciating to listen to him speak his constricted remarks so haltingly and diffidently.
  4:41pm northguineahills:

I heard "Love Song for Daead Che" first through the band, Northern Picture Library. Oddly enough, a friend of mine, found a stash of United States of America cassettes at a Big Lots in 1998 for $2.50 each, which is how I got my first copy before I got the LP/
  4:45pm mark in cbus:

Love this Reed song!
  4:46pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

United States of America cassettes at a Big Lots...that had to be exciting! They were probably produced in Mexico or Hong Kong though.
  4:48pm glenn:

so. i was just at my bank, and watched a guy close his account, with well over 500 grand in it, because the teller wouldn't let him cash his tenant's welfare check, worth about 500 dollars. the manager was not best pleased.
  4:49pm northguineahills:

huh, I actually got this, an Illegal Art comp, from going to the exhibit forever ago.
  4:50pm don:

abridged too far . . . swingin easy
  4:51pm TJ:

Tis a purty song
  4:52pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

moogy up the wazoo
  4:53pm still b/p:

I'd like to share that Swinglargo with a few backpacking friends. For no good reason we end up singing The Last Waltz, Humperdinck-style, from time to time out there.
  4:54pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

when I was a kid we used to giggle at the mention of "Humperdinck". It's still kinda funny.
  4:57pm glenn:

if you're gonna pick a stage name, why would you choose to name yourself after some obscure 18th century czech composer?
  4:58pm still b/p:

Oh, yeah, was very snickerworthy. When he debuted in popular music, I remember the talk on the radio about who this strangely named singer might really be. Probably could have succeeded anyway, but the buzz and oddness of the handle didn't hoit.
  5:00pm glenn:

sorry, he was an obscure 19th century german composer.
  5:02pm Marmalade Kitty:

what beautiful song for Che
  5:05pm Carmichael:

Ooohhh, Martin Denny ....
  5:09pm glenn:

mark dagley also makes beautiful visual art.
  5:10pm Scott:

...and was once in the amazing Boston band The Girls, no relation.
  5:12pm glenn:

grrrrr. muli talented creative interesting people. hate 'em.
  5:14pm glenn:

  5:14pm Marmalade Kitty:

learn to love us ;)
  5:18pm glenn:

hey scott, i have a guitar related question. can i shoot you an email?
  5:18pm Scott:

Sure Glenn, not sure if I can answer it tho!~
  5:22pm BSI:

oh great cavernous god-bones, you killin' me with this very large blood.
  5:22pm SF Spike:

I love Big Blood! This clinches it.
  5:25pm Cecile:

I think the same promoter who gave E Humperdink and tom Jones their names also managed Gilbert O' Sullivan (not his real name.)
  5:26pm Cecile:

He had a thing about naming his singers after things the audience already knew.
  5:27pm glenn:

actually, gilbert o'sullivan's real name is ray o'sullivan.
  5:30pm Cecile:

It is, but Gordon Mills had him change it to Gilbert cause, Gilbert and Sullivan?
  5:30pm Marmalade Kitty:

why would you change your name from ray to gilbert ..puzzled??
  5:31pm glenn:

  5:32pm Marmalade Kitty:

  5:32pm glenn:

so.... if tom parker was colonel tom, shouldn't gordon mills have been general mills?
  5:33pm BSI:

Forget O'Sullivan.
Ray should've kept that first name but changed his last name to O'Sunshine.
  5:34pm JCJ:

I would guess he probably changed his name thinking that the similarity to "Gilbert and Sullivan" would make it more memorable.
  5:34pm Cecile:

Gilbert and Sullivan, the famous composers of operettas in the 1800s?

LOL BSI and Glenn.
  5:37pm BSI:

sounded like that label shoulda been Sky, for this Grosskopf... it's got that shiny 1981 arpeg. thing goin' on...
  5:38pm glenn:

hey, why isn't there any hoof and mouth sinfonia on the free music archive?
  5:39pm Scott:

coz it's all covers, we can't gets rights to any of that.
  5:40pm glenn:

oh poo.
  5:41pm john:

please return my brain to normal speed, I'm tryin' to work here!
  5:42pm Scott:

lotsa vids on the FMU blog, glenn: http://tinyurl.com/4rg27hf
  5:42pm BSI:

massive dig.
  5:43pm glenn:

yep. i've watched some of them. it's very good stuff.
  5:45pm Marmalade Kitty:

If you were promised fame, would you change your name? to Gilbert? thats pretty sad!
  5:47pm glenn:

fame, schmame.
  5:48pm Marmalade Kitty:

Gill or Gilly ok..
  5:48pm Juan Rapido:

did you say ignatz or pig nuts?
  5:50pm Marmalade Kitty:

Raymond Gilbert is better..
  5:50pm Cecile:

Sure, I'd change my name to Gilbert. If it meant I didn't have to sleep with anyone or do any mall gigs or sell drugs or whatever. It could be loads worse.
  5:51pm Cecile:

Well, Gilbert did have a big fistful of top 10 hits in the 70s with that name.
  5:52pm Marmalade Kitty:

I'd rather clean the loo!
  5:54pm Steve C:

Hey Scott! Love the Dagley stuff! He played with us (ps) for a while. Great guy!
  5:55pm glenn:

what if you had to sell drugs at your mall gigs and then sleep with the booker?
  5:56pm Gilbert aka Cecile:

I changed my name. I don't have to do that.
  5:57pm Gilbert aka Cecile:

Now you have to play some real Guess Who before Canada attacks you for this affront, Scott.
  5:57pm Burton Carmichael Cummings:

OK, this song rocks!
  5:58pm TJ:

I head the legion not long ago on a different fmu program. Fun stuff!
  5:59pm Carmichael:

You can't argue with an entire legion of rock stars. I mean, you just can't.
  5:59pm Gilbert aka Cecile:

Yay, Scott! I knew you'd play Cherish.
  6:00pm glenn:

randy bachman wrote these eyes. the music, anyway.
