  9:04am Cheri Pi:

Heavy start. Nice.
  9:06am jason:

g'mornin and welcome to 2012!
  9:09am Yair Yona:

what's up
  9:10am Andrea on the M62:

Wow that has woken me up
  9:11am dc pat:

acid hell mix is good
  9:12am Dead Corporate Eyes:

that is some strong stuff there
  9:15am dc pat:

human eye is good
  9:16am dc pat:

..etc, etc...man just keeps getting mORE good
  9:17am Dead Corporate Eyes:

even, like, "better"!
  9:19am jason:

what are your 2012 predictions, nostradomeses of the wfmu playlist comments?
  9:19am nyc:

good morning good morning
  9:21am MD:

Happy 2012 all!!! Have we all booked our passage on the "Mother Ship"??? Only one "carry on" permitted...XOXO
  9:21am Yair Yona:

I predict a new album by Acid Mother's Temple.
  9:22am Dead Corporate Eyes:

prediction #1: 2012 will come and go with no major changes to anything. Carry on towards our uncertain DOOM!
  9:26am Caryn:

I predict that around October, there will be a major ad campaign for the "new Mayan calendar". After all, the old one will be running out soon, so you need to get the new one.
  9:27am Snortley:

More of the same, only newer.
  9:27am earwax:

I predict that many people will die and even more will be born.
  9:27am with a song:

Doom doom doom doom,
Doombie doombie
doom doom doom doom doom,
Doombie doombie
doom doom doom doom doom,
Doombie doombie doom,
Wah wah wah wah-ahhh...
  9:28am northguineahills:

Nice pairing, AGF w/ Ellen Allien.
  9:29am earwax:

I feel just like the Amazing Criswell. Although, my hair isn't as cool.
  9:29am still b/p:

Can I get a new Mayan calendar with pictures of impossibly cute jaguar cubs?
  9:30am Caryn:

Prediction no. 2: Over 90 % of all new year's resolutions will have been broken before the start of February.
  9:30am dc pat:

man, how big are those mayan calendars anyway? Imagine hanging one on your wall. It'd have to be a pretty fucking big nail.
  9:33am MD:

YEAH!!!! b/p...each "page" would be carved witha cute cub...you would need a crane to chance the months!!!
  9:34am Caryn:

Yeah, but now you can get the new mayan calendar as an app. Way more convenient. With your choice of cute jaguar cub, funny emperor tamarin or fuzzy baby capybara as illustration.
  9:36am northguineahills:

I just saw the calender when I was in Mexico City last month. You'd need a giant-ass loft apartment to fit that inside.
  9:38am northguineahills:

I like where this set is going....
  9:39am still b/p:

I predict it's going to be wicked painful when I pay for a heating oil delivery tomorrow. And I will dream of using oil speculators for blood sacrifices and hanging a few of their heads off the fill pipe on the side of the house.
  9:41am Caryn:

Oh hell, do it b/p! As your defence, claim that the blood sacrifices are part of your religion, and that the government shouldn't be messing with your religious freedom. Might not work, though.
  9:41am Dead Corporate Eyes:

you live out in the boonies there still b/p?
  9:42am northguineahills:

MJ? This is the second day in a row I've heard MJ on WFMU. weird....
  9:44am still b/p:

In Maine city. Prices jumping fast just since yesterday. $3.37 the lowest found.
  9:50am Dead Corporate Eyes:

prediction #3: Jason will surprise and wow us with many great live performances this year
  9:51am Yair Yona:

prediction : Elvis will be found alive and kicking and lives in Jerusalem (he's a rabbi you know)
  9:52am dc pat:

prediction: the market for big fucking nails will skyrocket along with the price of oil in Maine City
  9:56am BSI:

"I predict: They're gonna stop having the sun, so you'd better get tan NOW."
  9:58am still b/p:

There's an artist up here maybe'll let me borrrow/barter some BFNs:

In other Mayan matters, you can see today's date or enter your birth date to see it in Mayan glyphs here if you scroll down a bit:
  9:59am northguineahills:

Bob Ostertag's Motormouth is Pay-what-you-wish download on his website.
  10:05am Cecile:

I think some business opportunities are:
- developing apples that will grow in tropical temperatures
- breeding water buffalo that will thrive in Minnesota
- and inventing 1000000000000 spf sunscreen.
  10:06am pierre (non-listener listener):

Bonjour Jason, happy to be here, and would prefer to hear…
but then again, work came on the way…
  10:08am pierre (non-listener listener):

the FMA list was a very fun thing to make, it actually really make me want to get involve more into the FMA, by trying to write articles, mix, visuals, and such… just because music is so great (you know…)
  10:12am Dead Corporate Eyes:

good predictions all around. this crew should be consulted by the new world order!
  10:21am dc pat:

prediction: Sun Kich will take over the ROCK WORLD!!
  10:24am Dead Corporate Eyes:

now that's my kind of guitar-playin'
  10:31am Dead Corporate Eyes:

what a great Gene Clark tune!
  10:42am Cheri Pi:

this is the perfect song.
  10:43am 2012 Calendar:

Maya con dios, my darlings!
  10:44am Yair Yona:

I love Roadmaster. such an underrated album.
  10:44am Yair Yona:

prediction : Sun Araw switches to accordion.
  10:49am Cecile:

Yair Yona opens for Lady Gaga, sudddenly a million finger-picking guitar vids are uploaded to YouTube.
  10:49am PAS Music:

Great show!
  10:52am kate:

awesome show dude
  10:53am Richard from Venezuela:

Greetings Jason and all the listeners.
  10:54am G:

Harold Camping will convert to Mayanism
  10:55am Cheri Pi:

The Who will let the dogs out.
  10:56am dc pat:

Husker Du will do a reunion tour. JUST kidding...
  10:58am Dead Corporate Eyes:

  11:00am dc pat:

Yamamoto on that Sun Kich album? That guy is nuts.
  11:01am Carmichael:

Jesus' gggggg grandson will be found alive living in Europe. He plays in a Spinal Tap tribute band by night, and works on the Volvo assembly line by day.
  11:03am dc pat:

yes always!
  11:03am Cecile:

Play some Gap Band.
  11:03am PAS Music:

Husker Du at half speed or slower!
  11:04am Cecile:

Old Empire from Grant Hart's band.
A great f-you Bob slag.
Or Cabaret by Morel - a onetime Bob Mould collaborator who is a better artist in his own right.
  11:05am Cecile:

I have a love-hate affair with the Huskers..
  11:06am BSI:

I'm having a love-love affair with some cold geese.
  11:06am Cheri Pi:

Husker Du want to know if we're lonely, set up a hotline staffed with Loutallica.
  11:07am Cecile:

Morel's song has that great line: "I'll stand by the side of the road where you left me/Singing life is a cabaret."
  11:07am dc pat:

I thought Bob fronting No Age was amazing. Who needs Grant Hart?
  11:07am bill:

Jason, do you have any Bob fronting No Age?
  11:08am Cecile:

Grant Hart has his flaws, but is pretty great.
He marches to the beat of his own drummer. for sure.
  11:09am Cecile:

But frankly, Greg Norton was the smart one out of all of them. He plays Crimson-like fear-prog with friends from Zebulon Pike, is a noted chef and stays above all the BS. Before Metal Circus came out, he was the frontman onstage - cracking jokes and working the crowd.
  11:10am Cecile:

I saw some video of that and it gave me a whole light on the damaged Huskers dynamic. As they mixed Greg out of the picture, it got less and less interesting to me.
  11:11am G:

After the election in November, the winning side will say they have a mandate, and the losing side will say the election was stolen.

Wow, this is easy!
  11:12am bill:

Cecile, that sounds like very interesting video. Can you direct me to it?
  11:12am Nate in Detroit:

Holy Crap, that beer nerd meetup sounds amazing! WFMU and Canadian Breakfast Stout at an arcade?! I think my head might explode. The only way it could possibly be more perfectly tailored to fit my interests would be to add a bike ride in there somewhere. So bummed I can't make it.
  11:14am jason:

hey bill, got to see Bob + No Age doin the du live once, but i don't have any on me
  11:14am Cecile:

I wish I could. Maybe try "early Husker Du" on YouTube?
Some guy I don't know hauled it out at a "boys night" where we all brought our favorite rock DVDs and drank beer. It was from a handheld camcorder at the Entry in '82 or '83.
  11:16am Cecile:

FYI, in some circles I am a token "boy".
  11:16am andymorphic:

i saw mould do a solo set last year and i reminded of how many brilliant songs that guy had written.
  11:17am andymorphic:

and du really were pioneers....zen archade was a sonic revelation when it first came out
  11:19am Cecile:

you know, everyone loves Zen. And I appreciate it. But I just got a lot more out of its cousin album Double Nickels on the Dime.
  11:19am northguineahills:

Jeese! I love these Frozen Geese!
  11:20am Cecile:

then again, I liked Gang of Four better than the Buzzcocks.
  11:20am andymorphic:

everything on sst was amazing
  11:22am andymorphic:

but du kind of gave validity to the hold hardcore thing.....the song writing was undeniably good and anyone who heard it regardless of musical taste had to give it and them props......i remember being shocked when they got signed to warner
  11:22am Auril:

blood eyes are smiling something reminds me something reminds you
!!!!!!! OHH YES!!!!! BOM!!!
  11:23am dc pat:

I'm with you on Gang of 4 but I think it's a toss up between Zen Arcade and Doub Nickles, for very different reasons.
  11:23am bill:

Thanks Cecile
  11:23am andymorphic:

gang of four are better than buzzcocks....but the fall beat them all
  11:24am dc pat:

...I mean I love both albums for very different reasons...
  11:24am BSI:

Jesus Hell-Bats, those geese.
  11:25am pierre (non-listener listener):

ah… frozen geese's disclaimer on the favs of 2012
  11:26am Cecile:

The Fall are king.
  11:26am andymorphic:

zen and double were very different but represented hardcore maturing...that went i many directions...it was an exciting time..
  11:27am dc pat:

can't argue with the Fall, although truth be told, I'd probably pick out a Buzzcocks tune to listen to before the other Go4 or Fall.
  11:29am Cecile:

it was, but kind of also a beginning of the end. A lot of people who were starting to do interesting things with hardcore - Scream, Really Red, Sorry, GI, Articles of Faith kind of got lost in the shuffle. (also the fact that people were inventing the indie business model as they went along didn't help.)
  11:29am Worldpop:

This is by far one of the most addicting stations that I have ever listened to!
  11:29am andymorphic:

this about the fall and wire is they are still putting out great material....go4 and buzzcocks are done creatively
  11:30am Cecile:

I realized a long time ago that I am not that much of a treble person, and the Du and Buzzcocks are all treble to me.
  11:30am Cecile:

I agree with that andy.
  11:32am andymorphic:

don't get me started on articles of faith....i wore at aof shirt till it fell off my body....didn't mould produce their first record?
  11:32am dc pat:

I'm ALL treble though I can't hear in bars anymore. in a similar vain, there was a great interview w/ Ian MacKaye on our local pub radio yesterday. I think his indie business model is pretty cool though maybe too exclusive.
  11:33am Cecile:

this is incredible.

Yes. And I sold the AoF album to a member of Fishbone where I worked!
  11:33am northguineahills:

damnage, Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino was awesome. You're killing as always Jason!
  11:36am Ike:

I liked Bob Mould's later project Sugar more than Dü. Is that strange?
  11:36am BSI:

@DCPat: heh, I'm "somewhat" curious about that interview but can't get around to it (seem to be filling my ears with WFMU: tough habit to put down for a few minutes)... I guess you you've made it in this town if Kojo N. is interviewing you on the tin box...
  11:37am Cecile:

Ike, the only thing stranger is that I probably enjoyed "homosapien" as much if not more than the Buzzcocks.
  11:37am andymorphic:

in winnipeg it was metal that killed hardcore. slayer played in like 84..opening for verbal assault and everything changed ... all the hardcore went metal.
  11:39am Cecile:

Or people discovered the Stooges or Birthday party like The Necros and Die Kreuzen, respectively.
  11:39am dc pat:

BSI: I think he has a lot of integrity and tells a good story. as punk rockers go, he's a pretty good egg. Right about Koko--I was surprised that he was so well informed about DC punk...or Fugazi anyway.
  11:39am northguineahills:

@Ike: I feel the same way. I love Sugar. I never got into Husker Du. I think I just have one dubbed cassette of Husker Du.
  11:40am Cecile:

I actually really like "Flip Your Wig" a whole lot.
  11:40am bill:

Thanks anyway Jason (work gets in the way sometimes)
  11:40am Carmichael:

My next band will be called The Treble Persons.
  11:40am BSI:

@Andymorphic: At that point there was enough HC/metal crossover to give a lot of us punks a guilty pleasure... Wasn't Sacred Denial from WFMU country / NJ?
  11:40am dc pat:

I dunno, I just thought sugar were predictable...
  11:41am dc pat:

ok early lunch commenters, happy new year to you, jason!
  11:42am Cecile:

happy New Year, pat!
  11:43am andymorphic:

i never got into sugar...it seemed two dimentional compared to what was going on around it
  11:44am northguineahills:

Sugar was poppy, as predictable as pop tends to be.
  11:44am Ike:

D.C. radio... ugh... I hate stations that will interview a great musician but never play any of the actual music. I still despise WAMU for throwing all of its bluegrass shows overboard years & years ago. Oh right, they "moved" to the HD2 channel, as if anybody uses HD radio. And now WAMU is trying to carpetbag another NPR station's territory on the Eastern Shore. Jackasses.
  11:44am Cecile:

I think that was the era where I only listened to GBV, free jazz and Captain Beefheart (most of the 90s.)
  11:45am Cecile:

and whatever electronica tapes my AOL penpal would send me.
  11:46am Cecile:

I'm finding 90s stuff I missed all the time.
  11:47am kme in chi:

Ike: But then there was Greaseman!

Cecile: My 2012 prediction is that this is the year that 90s retro will go REALLY big.
  11:48am Cecile:

@kme I trust you.
I'm holding out for Hypercolor shirts to come back.
  11:49am bill:

Greaseman... I need the Men in Black to erase my memory.
  11:49am northguineahills:

Dug those Mexi bands, haven't heard any from that label before.
  11:50am Detroit Mac:

I was sorry to just learn that Jennifer Miro of The Nuns died on December 16 at the age of 54 in New York City. News of her death was only officially announced today.
  11:50am andymorphic:

the 90's is when i realized music had a history and was not limited to my local scene
  11:51am Ike:

Never got into Greaseman. That was a long time ago, yeah? We also had WHFS, if you're going to be nostalgic.
  11:52am Cecile:

oh, jeez, Mac, that is sad.
  11:53am JT:

Zen Arcade it is then
  11:53am bill:

"Oasis are definitely the Beatles of the 90s!" - Z100
  11:53am Cheri Pi:

  11:53am andymorphic:

she was wild wild wild and you couldnt tame her
  11:54am BSI:

For me in the early '80s, it was WMUC (u.of maryland), WCVT (towson state u), and WHFS. ... Seemed like all the menacing jocks on the school-bus were big Greaseman heads... Nowadays of course, radio down here is long dead. Long live FMU.
  11:55am dc pat:

that's why so many commenters are DCers
  11:56am andymorphic:

canada had brave new waves on the cbc. all night. it was amazing. rip.
  11:57am Ike:

Too bad WMUC could never get above 10 watts... at a whopping height of 3 feet! Would've done D.C. radio a world of good. I heard some amazing things on there on the rare occasion that I visited College Park. They're still there, yeah? Still trapped in the FCC's backyard, can't get away with anything, I'm sure.
  11:58am Cecile:

andy, I heard that a lot.
I'd be playing these records I kept trying to get the other college djs to play, and here was a national radio station confirming what I liked!
  11:58am dc pat:

but the thing that bugs me most about H Du is Harts drums--they sound like shit almost universally. Total crap on Zen, like wet towels. I know very little drums from SST was good but come ON!
  11:58am bill:

Cecile have you read "Freedom"? Late 70s/early 80s MPLS - a major scene takes place at 7th St Entry. I was at Mac at the time, saw Husker Du play the concert hall. I think there were 4 of us watching.
  11:59am Cecile:

no, I haven't read it.
Who wrote it?
I remember finding copies of Sweet Potato and whatnot and wanting to be there.
  12:00pm Cecile:

I went there for Minicon and proudly sported my Clash and B-52s badges I bought next door to the hotel.
