'ello folks.
  12:15pm MenfussMike:

Thought that Windhand tune was gonna be Black Sabbath...
Avatar 12:17pm kamikaze:

Hi All! Thanks for tuning in! Very psyched that Hugo Burnham, drummer of Gang of Four is my PEER PRESSURE guest at 1pm! Post questions if you've got em~~ :)
  12:19pm PKNY:

That Windhand was so killer, thanks for playing!
  12:20pm Luna:

'ello from Nuevo Mexico...Land of Fresh Roasted Green Chile. 'Tis the season.

Avatar 12:29pm kamikaze:

sigh. I love roll call!
  12:31pm Cecile:

  12:31pm pierre:

Présent !!

(with a THICK french accent)
  12:32pm paula pc:

here as well -- like the mustard/ketchup colors
  12:32pm Bad Ronald:

I don't feel tardy...
  12:34pm tim from champaign:

Ha! Bad Ronald, that's one of my favorite lines.
  12:34pm Cecile:

Roll call!
  12:37pm joe:

So I was thinking DK next year's fund raiser you should make a shirt of Zorro and Bullwinkle sword fighting. :)
  12:37pm Cecile:

I like it, Joe!

I just call it Anthrax.
  12:38pm jon barmak:

Hello Professor Hugo. You prickly old pear you. Hello from Blighty
  12:41pm Cecile:

this is good, Diane, but it's almost...nu-metal!
  12:42pm Cecile:

man, this so takes me back.
I remember just being spastic with happiness when this EP came out in the states.
  12:42pm Cheri Pi:

Joe-Cecile have already designed DK's next t-shirt, it stars a mule, a buckeye, rhubarb and 2 governors.
  12:44pm eyenoise:

Entertainment! has never gotten old. Still sounds amazingly fresh.
  12:44pm Cecile:

well, I dunno, Cheri. Our concept kind of perplexed Miss Kamikaze and I do think she worries for our sanity sometimes. :D
  12:44pm Cheri Pi:

the 2 governors are battling. What's more metal than that?
  12:46pm Cheri Pi:

Cecile, baby, with our checkered Ohio/Michigan past, sadly our sanity never stood a chance.
  12:46pm Cecile:

also I have to do a TON of clean-up on it now that I know what I did wrong on it.
  12:47pm Cecile:

I can make it look so much more metal now...
  12:48pm tim from champaign:

Are you using a Michigan governor? If so, I hope it's Governor Granholm. She rules! Too bad she can't run for prez.
  12:50pm Cecile:

no, it's Toledo War era governors. It's Stevens T. Mason.
  12:50pm Cheri Pi:

do it Cecile. Make it more metal than Metal!!
  12:51pm Cheri Pi:

Stevens T. Mason is the, they, & thee only governor that matters to true Power Metal Historians.
  12:51pm Cecile:

Pi and I decided to get into the fake historical concept album biz. I did an album cover for our concept album on the Toledo War. We just need Iced Earth or someone to buy it off us. Concept Album Kit - just add band.
  12:52pm tim from champaign:

Oh, cool. I'm glad Michigan lost that one. Who wants Toledo on their state stinkin up the joint?
  12:54pm Cecile:

I dunno, it would end all this periodic talk up in the UP of joining Wisconsin, because we WOULD be Wisconsin. Because Ohio wouldn't have kept us most likely.
  12:54pm Satchmo "Monkey Feet" Infidado:

Yes indeed another beautiful day and some good old rocking music..... Lets start a revolution!!
  12:56pm Cecile:

satch, I'm spinning around on my office chair now.
  12:58pm Cheri Pi:

There is more metal album fodder surrounding the Toledo war and subsequent fallout; it can be yours for a low, low price. Just add your True Power metal band.
  1:01pm Droll:

Cecile, You have no idea how good "Concept Album Kit" sounds to me -- perfectly aligned with the goals of my "band". How do I become the first customer? I don't do "True" Power Metal, or "True" anything else. Surreal everything.
  1:03pm Cheri Pi:

send us your money Droll.
  1:04pm Cecile:

Droll, contact Cheri. She is the conceptualist, I but the servant to her ideas.
  1:04pm Cecile:

and yeah, that too.
  1:05pm Cheri Pi:

A representative will get back to you.
  1:06pm Cecile:

you guys were like the LOUDEST band ever.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:07pm efd:

Rezillos are coming to the US soon! In November, I think.
  1:07pm Droll:

CP, Yeah, about the money, the advance is already spent. I was hoping you'd do it for points. Sound good? I have a great deal with YouTube on distribution.
  1:07pm Cecile:

Ooh, Cheri, are you familiar with the trainwrecks that are Repo: The Genetic Opera and The Devil's Carnival? It's basically horror movie producers secretly wanting to make their own version of Le Miz with no budget. I've both terrified by this things and cannot look away. Well, from the trailers, I mean. I dont' think I could sit through them.
  1:09pm Cheri Pi:

No! I'm not...But I'll get familiar.
  1:09pm Cecile:

we could do a musical about a horror movie producer who wants to make his version of Le Miz but no one understands him. And he takes up killin'. or something like that.
  1:10pm Cecile:

it's the kind of WTF? I didn't think existed any more. Zip through YouTube and you'll see stuff.
  1:10pm eyenoise:

I saw the reunited original line up of Gang Of Four including Hugo in 2005. I was a stunning experience.
  1:11pm Cecile:

I dunno, call it "killing is my business...and business is good." I'm sure that title has never been used before.
  1:11pm Cheri Pi:

As long as RickRubin is the first victim I will personally fund this project. I accept.
  1:11pm Cecile:

damn, eyenoise. I saw them with Sara Lee, who was great, but with Dave Allen?
  1:12pm Cecile:

I kinda like Rick Rubin. He signed Trouble for 2 albums, girl!
  1:12pm jon barmak:

Dianne your questions are lazy lazy lazy... "tell us how this came about?" ad nauseum
  1:12pm Cecile:

But we could do a Rubin-like character.
  1:13pm joe:

Not familir with Devi's Carnival and Repo is pretty bad as a whole, but the proformences are pretty cool. So if you can grit your teeth through the rest of the crap there are some jems in the music sense.
  1:13pm Cheri Pi:

agreed. Rubinesque.
  1:14pm Cecile:

jon, it works for her. Gets people talking.
  1:15pm Cecile:

Devil's Carnival might be a bit better.
But anyway, yeah, the whole idea calls out for a POWER METAL CONCEPT ALBUM.
  1:16pm cubicle carl:

@jon barmak I think Diane's questions are great. Just what fans want to know.
  1:16pm Nate:

Question for Hugo: Who has been the greatest influence on your life - as a drummer, a Dad, and a teacher? Very best ~ Nate.
  1:17pm Cecile:

I would have never pegged him for being a Creedence fan! Great stories.
  1:18pm Cheri Pi:

It works for me too Jon, the details in these interviews are are intimate and wouldn't be revealed elsewhere. Plus we can ask him questions so post some of your own.
  1:19pm chitown kath:

'ccr was the first band i ever saw live' - that is just precious.
  1:21pm Cheri Pi:

I'm very happy for CCR fans right now.
  1:22pm Satchmo "Monkey Feet" Infidado:

@Cecile revolution at 5:00!!!!!
  1:22pm Satchmo "Monkey Feet" Infidado:

I wish CCR was the first band I saw live LoL!!!!
  1:24pm dinatekno:

I just hit the Big 50 myself and remember seeing Gang of Four at Hurrah & Irving Place back in 1980. FANTASTIC!!! Great music then and now.
  1:25pm joe:

Love me the Monkey Man up there as one of my Stones Favs.
  1:25pm chris:

CCR, Stones... I need a smoke and a beer... Fookin ell, following a Hawkwind tour, did I hear? Insane! Nice interview, Diane, as always. I couldn't disagree with Jon more...
  1:28pm Cheri Pi:

[cracks beer open]
  1:28pm Satchmo "Monkey Feet" Infidado:

Wish I didn't have to go but have too!!!! The fight continues.... Keep busting out the tunes and the minds turning..... Great stuff!!!!
  1:28pm cubicle carl:

I was at the Irving Plaza show in '80 as well. A week later it was the Slits at Irving Plaza. I tried to start a chat with this pretty girl who was at both shows all alone. She gave me the shoulder.
Avatar 1:29pm kamikaze:

I was at those shows in 1980 as well...so great!
  1:30pm chris:

did you give Carl the shoulder, Diane? :-)
  1:31pm Cheri Pi:

I"m going to give CCR another chance.
  1:31pm SteveL:

This set is fascinating. The change in music in the late 70s was so rebelliously dramatic that it was easy to forget that it, like all music, was influence by much of what came before.
Avatar 1:31pm kamikaze:

Ha! Who knows!!! I was quite a punk then; definitely not very friendly. Sorry Carl!!
  1:32pm cubicle carl:

It's Ok, Diane. I loved you from a distance.
  1:33pm SteveL:

  1:34pm Cheri Pi:

Quadrophenia was very important to me when I was 15.
  1:34pm YETI BOB:

I LOVE IT. CCR, the Stones, the Who, hell yeah!!!! (And by the way I was at that show at Irving Plaza, one of the first bands I ever saw!). LOVE YOUR WORK HUGO.
  1:35pm joe:

Cheri there are some "non hit" CCR jems out there.
  1:36pm MenfussMike:

  1:38pm Cheri Pi:

Thanks Joe-I'll check it out. I'll listen to the Minutemen covering them first as a way of getting my feet wet.
  1:41pm joe:

Yeah and they are a great band to find in your local dollar vinyl bin.
  1:46pm Cheri Pi:

Diane-this is one of the best peer pressure segments yet!
  1:47pm Cheri Pi:

who was he saying couldn't play together due to contractual issues?
  1:48pm Hugo B:

Mick Ronson and Mott The Hoople
  1:48pm KP:

This is all so great. Who would think given a chance to play the Who, it would be Quad?
  1:51pm Cheri Pi:

thanks Hugo!
  1:56pm Cecile:

I think that's so funny how Free influences people really don't sound like them. Like Paul Young, the pop singer, got turned onto soul by reading interviews with Free.
  2:00pm Cecile:

I'd love to hear Chris Cornell do this. I think he's a lot like Paul Rogers - he can't sing everything, but when he's got the right song, he's unbeatable.

The right thing for Paul Rogers, however, doesn't include any Queen songs
  2:01pm Greta Brinkman:

Hi Diane! Could you please ask Hugo what he remembers of the GoF gig opening for the B-52's in November of 1979 at the Electric Ballroom? I was there, remember being so struck by the Gang of Four.
  2:03pm Cheri Pi:

Bad Manners have a lovely version of this "My Girl Lollipop"
  2:05pm Cecile:

  2:05pm Cheri Pi:

they really are Aliens!
Avatar 2:07pm kamikaze:

What city, Greta?
  2:09pm Cheri Pi:

DK- probably Camden town...
  2:09pm Medici Giraffe:

Kool Set
  2:09pm Medici Giraffe:

Kool Set
  2:13pm joe:

The B-52S and Gang of Four wound up sharing a bass player in Sara Lee.
  2:14pm YETI BOB:

Robert Wyatt didn't actually write "Shipbuilding", he covered it. It was originally written by Elvis Costello and Clive Langer.
  2:15pm joe:

Hugo has working on the business side of music made you more comfortable with being able to say you are ok with the songs being used.
  2:16pm joe:

Cop Shoot Cop on Nike commercial still the one that blows my mind forever.
  2:17pm Cheri Pi:

Cecile, have our people call His people....
  2:19pm tim from champaign:

What areas of art does Mr Burnham teach?
  2:20pm joe:

BRAVO!!!!! HUGO!!!!!!
  2:21pm chris:

winging wankery... I'm going to use that one again!
  2:22pm joe:

It's so funny that he brings that up I just posted a response to an article about that just about 5 minutes ago. WEIRD!!!!
  2:24pm joe:

Hugo if you can see this read this person's responce it is amazing
  2:26pm Stella:

Great stories...so fun to hear you...rock on, Hugo!!
  2:27pm joe:

Bev Bevan?
  2:28pm Cecile:

I gotta bail, but great show Diane and Hugo!
very cool.
  2:29pm Hugo B:

YES!!! Bev Bevan...sorry senior moment there.
  2:33pm joe:

I was very lucky to meet Clem Burke (or as my friends and I refer to him Elvis Ramone) when I saw Blondie a couple of years back. Very nice man.
  2:34pm Cheri Pi:

Hey, Clem is playing with Hugh Cornwell now!
  2:41pm joe:

YAY page 3 Girls :)
  2:42pm John Lisa:

  2:42pm alberto:

this show is great!
  2:44pm chris:

Thanks, Diane for another awesome show. Thanks, Hugo B for sharing so much with us.
  2:52pm KP:

Great work.
  2:53pm Hugo B:

It was a privilege and lots of fun.
  2:53pm alberto:

i was just hanging out with ernie at the continental club in austin. he sat in a song with the band.
  2:54pm joe:

Thank DK and HUGO B. It was a lot of fun.
  2:54pm cubicle carl:

This was a great great show, Diane.
  2:55pm Luna:

I heart Mekons
  2:56pm dcp:

me too Luna. GOD missed the whole fekkin show!
  2:57pm Luna:

One of the best shows I ever saw...they were running late, wayyy late. Showed up, plugged in and fuckin' killed it.
  2:57pm dcp:

at least I'm here to say HI HUGO! One of my favorite drummers.
  2:58pm Hugo B:

Hi dcp!!
  2:59pm dcp:

Mekons are always good. And Langford by himself too, even if you don't like the tunes, he's hilarious.
  2:59pm dcp:

..bye Hugo...
