A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Alice Coltrane carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

merry morning all! john lurie will be here later....
  9:03am kat330:

Hi, trouble! So looking forward to that. Is the painting entitled Why the caged bird sings or somesuch?
  9:04am PKNY:

Don't know this Pharoah (though is a reinterpretation of "Creator Has a Master Plan"), will have to take a look for it. Thanks for playing!
  9:10am Titus in GA:

Morning, Trouble! As always, great to kick it w/ya and the lovely sounds ya bring. John Lurie! I'm stoked!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:13am trouble:

the painting is by john lurie and it is called 'war bird of the infidels'. hey titus, kat and PKNY! good to have you aboard
  9:16am kat330:

  9:16am kat330:

I never heard Nina's cover of this -- great!
  9:17am northguineahills:

Not sure how I never noticed John painted.
  9:19am ?:

  9:20am Titus in GA:

Aww, many thanks to ya Trouble;)
  9:21am tim from champaign:

I checked out a book of John Lurie's paintings from the library. Really great contemporary expressionist style work.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:26am trouble:

yeah for libraries! stocking john lurie...
  9:26am ffrr:

Good day T & all, looking forward to your guest. Just wondering if you're winging the interview or if you have set of questions ready. I hope there's a couple toughies in there and not all soft ones. Have fun.
  9:31am kat330:

@tim: A quick breeze through the online link, noticed greater detail often on his flora while his fauna are always expressionist / primitive. Plants of higher intelligence?
  9:34am ?:

wishing a peaceful, gorgeous morning to all from a loyal patron of the free library of philadelphia!
  9:38am Brian in UK:

Hello trouble & folks. just spent an unexpected four days in Prague. Had my head turned around by Alphons Muchas' set of 20 paintings 'Slav Epic'. Stunning in size & ambition.

Belated Happy Birthday, trouble.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:40am trouble:

thanks brian in uk, sounds fabulous! glad you got to escape for a few days, always welcome.
  9:43am Brian in UK:

It was a complete surprise, my wife & daughters arranged this surprise trip. I did not know where I was going until I was on the 'plane. 60 years young next Monday.
These paintings are around 6m x 8m large.
  9:45am kat330:

Happy Birthday, early, Brian!
  9:47am Brian in UK:

PS Mucha died on 14th July 1940. Synchronicity.

Thanks kat330
  9:48am tim from champaign:

@kat: astute observation. That might be a good question for the artist of the hour. What's the significance of the distinct styles between flora and fauna?
  9:48am northguineahills:

!Cumpleaños, Brian!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:49am trouble:

wow, very cool. happy birthday to you too brian, fellow cancerian!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:55am trouble:

writing that question down kat/tim!
  9:56am Brian in UK:

gracias ngh. Dare I ask about that job interview from a few weeks back. Been a bit out of touch.
  9:58am kat330:

Speaking of fauna, here's a delightful clip of foxes at play outside a skateboard park near Puistola, Finland: http://yle.fi/uutiset/pikkupedot_leikkisina_skeittipuistossa/6209671
  9:59am Jennique:

Morning Trouble! Anticipating the John Lurie interview. Maybe you could ask him to paint portraits of your chickens?
  10:01am Brian in UK:

Once a fox has taken your chickens, you will never see them in the same light again. Experience talking.
  10:01am northguineahills:

The trouble w/ the job situation is that it is a startup, and they only have a dozen employees, so I have to wait until they hire a few more people until I can start. So, I've in the middle of a creating a freelance proposal, b/c I never know when aforementioned job will start. Þakka þér!
  10:04am bruceleh:

  10:04am camila:

Hello trouble, las malas amistades are from Bogota, Colombia !
  10:04am kat330:

Well, I hadn't intended to dredge up bad memories, the fox in the chicken house and all. Sorry, Brian! But it's nature after all. I forgave my cat for presenting me a present of a sweet, innocent bird. :)
  10:06am northguineahills:

Has anyone seen this cassette release? "Arto Lindsay / David Moss / Mark Miller*, John Lurie, Elliott Sharp, Ned Rothenberg ‎– Noise New York IV".
  10:06am kat330:

It's a Pontiac!
  10:07am Brian in UK:

Good luck, ngh.

That's cool kat330. Life goes on.
  10:08am bruceleh:

Poor old ni**ers think it's a Cadillac
  10:08am Dilettante Courtoisie - Paris:

Hi John. This message does not have to go on the comments board. How can I get in touch with you? I have tried to email you via johnlurieprints.com. I did not get answer. May be you did not want to answer. May be this is not the right way to get in touch with you. can you help? Regards. ST
  10:08am Farmer:

Hello, Farmer!
  10:09am northguineahills:

That release was from 1983 on Black Mask Tapes.
  10:10am kat330:

@Brian: Not to say I didn't give Keats a good scolding initially -- that was in *my* nature.
  10:12am kat330:

Fred Eaglesmith's "Pontiac" is a fave of mine.
  10:12am lake erie:

come back and say hello again....
  10:12am robyn:

  10:12am Alison:

I'm ecstatic to listen today!!!
  10:12am duke:

This Marvin Pontiac stuff is particularly great.
  10:12am still b/p:

Some of the tales of the New York scene and scratch 'n scrape lifestyle in the late 70s & early 80s as told by Lurie and others in Blank City are pretty good. Maybe he can be steered toward a little bit o' that.
  10:17am robyn:

knowing john lurie loves law and order makes me happy.
  10:20am too much coffee:

crank calling Leonard Cohen. This is precious...
  10:22am Titus in GA:

'When i grew up, the phone just rang.' Nice! That's the quote of the day.
  10:23am Jennique:

John Lurie quote of the day : "It's the other way around, it's the other way around." Couldn't agree more.
  10:23am too much coffee:

so nice to have you back in the area John. is there any chance you're going to play live (even solo) somewhere nearby again? you don't have tell the whole internet. you can just post a little flyer somewhere...
  10:23am too much coffee:

would love to hear those tapes
  10:28am blip:

offend us!
  10:30am miss v:

YaY for having John Lurie as a guest!!! Mista Jack of all trades.
  10:30am miss v:

YaY for having John Lurie as a guest!!! Mista Jack of all trades.
  10:30am still b/p:

Cohen should do a song:
"John Lurie...are you there....?
Cut it out....cut it out...
I knowwwwww...it's you...""
  10:31am too much coffee:

ah 1998 was a fine year. a very fine year, indeed
  10:32am miss v:

Remember New YOrk is alright, if you like saxophones!
  10:33am kat330:

Very nice on the ears.
  10:34am too much coffee:

  10:36am too much coffee:

my last (and in fact, only) time seeing the Lounge Lizards was a show in Hamburg, in the Fabrik, I believe. Sep '98.
  10:37am too much coffee:

bought a poster, just for that show/venue, which I carefully brought back in a heavy cardboard tube... which someone then carelessly threw away, years later. I still can't forgive that person.
  10:41am seang:

Rock On, John
  10:46am bruceleh:

Leroy Jenkins passed away a year or two ago.
  10:46am northguineahills:

Ahhhhhhhhhhhh! Lol Coxhill died. FFFFFUuuuuFUFUFUFUuuuuuU!
  10:46am Julius Lansburgh:

Leroy Jenkins sadly passed away a few years ago....
  10:47am ang:

Love John's music. Was there live often. Love the acting and thrilled by the painting.
  10:48am bruceleh:

Leroy Jenkins (March 11, 1932 – February 24, 2007)
I used to run into him at the Park Slope Food Coop, such a gentle, gorgeous face!
  10:49am northguineahills:

I broke up w/ a girl once b/c she told me she didn't like jazz.
  10:49am Cecile:

hi, all, trouble, john.
  10:51am Nancy K:

Why I quit the film business.
  10:52am bruceleh:

I once dated a woman who couldn't stand saxophone.
I 'forgot' and once put on some really mellow Anthony Braxton standards, and she freaked out on me! "You don't respect me!"
Oy vey.
  10:53am Doug C.:

The same sort of thing is true with modern architecture and modern art re: "I don't like Jazz". Inevitably people say they like it when they see an artist's work who resonates with them but have some reason why that one is okay but the category is not.
  10:54am c_block:

  10:54am Cecile:

I used to fall asleep to them back in the day.
  10:56am northguineahills:

I love "Fishing w/ John"!
  10:56am kat330:

Sounds so much like a high school friend I had. Late to saxophone, but obsessed with learning it (lessons from local Jamey Aebersold) and equally obsessed with cold-blooded critters, catching snakes in Florida, keeping many King snakes as pets, etc.
  10:57am Titus in GA:

the one with John and Jim Jarmusch is my very favorite of Fishing With John! So many great one-liners.
  10:58am ?:

  10:58am erella inToronto:

This is wonderful. I saw the Lounge Lizards play in the 80's. It was either the pep lounge or Danceteria and it was great.
  10:59am Cheri Pi:

That was me @ Cecile;)
  11:00am Dave:

Love it when, in Fishing with John, you see a vulnerable Tom Waits, getting sea sick.
  11:00am Jennique:

I remember seeing Fishing With John on a big screen at the Knitting Factory (or was it the Angelika)? Really enjoyed those series. Honey Badger got nothing on John Lurie.
  11:02am holland oats:

is john willing to talk about john perry? that new yorker article freaked me out
  11:03am Cecile:

hi, Cheri!
  11:06am Brian in UK:

ngh is it true about Lol Coxhill? Saw him a couple of years ago with Mike Cooper at Cafe Oto. Still hitting it?
  11:07am northguineahills:

Yeah, he died yesterday :( http://www.jazzwisemagazine.com/news-mainmenu-139/69-2012/12425-jazz-breaking-news-saxophonist-lol-coxhill-dies-age-79
  11:07am ?:

John are you still hiding out?
  11:09am Yasushi Yamashita:

John, I'm very happy to hear your good voice from JAPAN.
  11:10am Brian in UK:

Loved 'The State of Things' shot in Portugal, I believe on the hoof.
  11:10am c_block:

OH No, i have lps of his. SAD :(
  11:11am kat330:

I think it changed during the Reagan era. Ronnie's to blame.
  11:15am seang:

yeah man, The State of Things--remember those big clunky foreign movie boxes from Blockbuster? seems like all the Wenders movies were trapped in those
  11:15am too much coffee:

but there was some fine music in the 80s. a lot of it in reaction to the all-encompassing pall of darkness that was reagan-thatcherism, I believe
  11:16am chris:

You go JL!
  11:16am kat330:

I sent Philo at work a link to Lurie's art. His reply: "Nice to see someone besides Captain Beefheart in the music world do great modern art." :)
  11:17am Cecile:

Yes, he did Dueling Tubas.
  11:17am northguineahills:

I'm really slow this morning, I just figured out who c_block is, HELLO!
Stayed up until 3:30 watching Kurosawa's "Ran".
  11:18am too much coffee:

btw: this is one of the more substantial discussions of the creative process and its associated dilemmas that I've chanced to eavesdrop on
  11:18am robyn:

this is a great interview.
  11:18am Jennique:

Martin Mull gave a talk at RISD and he is an EXCELLENT painter. He carved scupltures out of cheese and held an opening in the mens bathroom at the Museum of fine Arts in Boston. GREAT painter.
  11:18am robyn:

ha. jinx too much coffee!!
  11:18am kat330:

trouble went to RISD! I did not know that. I saw Firesign Theater at RISD when I was a student at Brown back in '70.
  11:19am Cecile:

worthwhile ngh. First time you saw it?
  11:20am northguineahills:

Yes, first time. I thought I'd just watch half and go to bed, but we all know that was a fool's errand.
  11:20am Cecile:

how much did you love it?
  11:21am Brian in UK:

Those Kurosawa images stay with you.
  11:21am Andrew:

Loving this interview. I have to get some lunch. Could you be a little less scintillating, please?
  11:22am Marshall Stacks:

Great, great show, Trouble!
  11:23am Brian in UK:

Prior to my visual migraines I get a scintillating scotoma. Love that name but not the migraine.
  11:24am Cecile:

I know in the early days of the Lounge Lizards they came under some fire for having a cheeky attitude towards jazz. Perhaps not being respectful enough, which seems silly now, but I wonder if John could speak about that if he hasn't already.
  11:24am Andy in Iowa City:

Morning Trouble and John! Great conversation!

Also love John's reference to Des Moines and Iowa when he was speaking about creativity and making art. Preach it.
  11:25am Cheri Pi:

I can never make it to the end of Ran awake so I never find out what happens to "grandpa"!
  11:25am ?:

is Ran the one with the four armies of different colors battling at the end? I admit I get his films confused sometimes . . .
  11:26am Cecile:

yep, that's the one.

Cheri, did you ever read King Lear? :D
  11:26am northguineahills:

I loved "Ran". Super awesome fun, and yes, it's the one w/ 4 armies of different colors battling at the end.
  11:27am Brian in UK:

I'm surprised Hollywood has not made a remake of The Eight Samurai.
  11:27am still b/p:

Hidetora: "I am lost..."
Kyoami: "Such is the human condition."
  11:28am Cecile:

Kurosawa's eyesight was reportedly starting to fail at the time, so he wanted to make something simple he could see.
  11:28am Titus in GA:

Speaking of Kurosawa, has anyone seen Red Beard? I'm quite itching to see that one.
  11:28am Brian in UK:

Existenial Angst. We also went to Franz Kafka Museum in Prague.
  11:29am too much coffee:

robyn: deja vu! haven't had anyone "jinx" me like that since the days of rotary telephones.
  11:29am ?:

Kagemusha is also a good one
  11:29am too much coffee:

you know, back when you could crank call someone and... get away with it!
  11:30am too much coffee:

try explaining that to the jaded kidz these days
  11:31am northguineahills:

Need to get the Fishing w/ John sndtrk, didn't know it existed.
  11:32am Brian in UK:

We get crank calls all the time from gas & electric companies wanting our business.
  11:33am too much coffee:

NGH: I knew it existed, but didn't know it was this awesome. still regretting not picking up that used, battered copy from AKA music in philly for $3, a couple of years ago.
  11:33am Cheri Pi:

Oh that's right Cecile!
  11:35am too much coffee:

Brian: right, only telemarketers, bill collectors & other servants of large corporate entities can get away with crank calling, these days. but us little people... no such luck.
  11:36am Cecile:

  11:36am Cecile:

He catches 50 ft long sturgeons.
  11:37am Cecile:

He gets the job done.
  11:37am robyn:

ran: i remember hilltops put to very dramatic memorable use. the armies running down the hilltops and kyoami leading the king up a hilltop.
  11:38am ?:

no shit, I heard the water in Britain was infused with estrogen from all of the birth control pills being taken and un-digested compounds therefrom being urinated into the water system; reports of large numbers of fish turning hermaphroditic. Maybe urban legend . . .
  11:38am kat330:

I'd like to hear more about his artwork.
  11:39am too much coffee:

icepack's gonna grow up to be one awesome dude. if we may extrapolate from available indicators.
  11:40am Cecile:

my mom didn't want girls.
She still doesn't want girls.
Joke's on her.
  11:40am Brian in UK:

? We are eating haddock tonight. Let you know the effects.
  11:41am Cheri Pi:

Mr. CP handles all of our basketball references.
  11:41am Cecile:

It's like the Detroit Pistons winning 2 champioships with a power forward with no jump shot, but amazing defensive skills.
  11:42am mike tp:

hello trouble n john. wonderful funny interview. seen johns work at blast gallery teaneck nj last couple months ago. really cool . n just seen the other nite down by law. im a little late but whos keeping score.
  11:43am northguineahills:

John is in Moore/Coley's "No Wave" book.
  11:44am northguineahills:

Fauna is usually non-human animals....
  11:44am Cecile:

do you have a twitter account, John.
  11:45am Brian in UK:

Flora is a Scottish woman.
  11:46am Jennique:

John, you are a'aight. The rest of the world needs fixin'.
  11:47am Lyman:

This is one of the best interviews I've heard on WFMU. John has covered so many great details about leading a creative life. I wish he would expound a bit more on what's going wrong over at The New Yorker.
  11:48am Bas, NL:

  11:48am Mist:

so...who's turned on just from hearing his voice??
  11:49am Jennique:

@Mist - I am!
  11:49am kat330:

One e.g. of more detail in the trees than in the "fauna": "Invention of Animals" http://static.squarespace.com/static/4f79e6bb24acf17508ea4ea7/4f8c3e1b24ac8cfbf637b1dd/4fecd53dc4aad320b0166b57/1340921195408/?format=1000w

  11:50am kat330:

My stream is behind by quite a bit, so before it gets too late: Fine interview, trouble! Thanks to Mr. Lurie and FMyou for giving this to us!
  11:50am too much coffee:

@johnlurie is taken, but @johnlurieart is still available. john, grab that twitter account! now!
  11:51am Titus in GA:

  11:53am robyn:

thank you john and trouble for a wonderful morning!
  11:53am duke:
