For me Mallard's weak link was their vocalist -- hence, I'm playing an instrumental.

Heya, Revolution Rabbit!
Avatar 12:39pm DARK STAR MAN:

did you like that covers album, the Magic Band did a couple of years ago?
Personally, thought the BBC live gig they sounded great, but the album was as flat as a pancake.

Peter Gunn! Yay for beatnik jazz!
Yes, 'twas Drumbo on vox. And all those Mallard albums do for me is remind me of how important the Cap'n was...

On the other hand, the Beefheart albums of that same period remind me of how important The Magic Band was.
Avatar 12:48pm DARK STAR MAN:

this is the album I am talking about -
The Magic Band – Back To The Front.

Label:ATP Recordings ‎– ATPR6CD

Released: Jul 2003

Bluejeans and Moonbeams, Unconditionally Guaranteed.... yech!
Avatar 12:52pm Tony Coulter:

Agreed, PS Simon. Beefheart needed a good band -- but the Magic Band without Beefheart is definitely missing that special spark, as good as they were in their own right.
Avatar 12:56pm Tony Coulter:

imho, of course....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:57pm pacific standard simon:

I think they just needed someone who was as dominant as Beefheart, but sounding nothing like Beefheart. Peter Gabriel should have hired them. Something like that.

Speaking of which, I will be seeing the "Source Family" documentary tomorrow. Has anyone seen it yet? Any good?

This Black to Comm track is a cover of a song by Muriel Dacq -- who I've never heard of.

Tony, it feels like this show has been on for three hours already. I mean this as a compliment.
Avatar 1:24pm Tony Coulter:

Hey Dervish! It was that Mr. Mocata -- he hypnotized you and warped your sense of time.
  1:28pm MrFab:

Was the Source Family the group Sky Saxon was affiliated with?
Amoeba Hollywood had a big Source Family/Yao Ho Wa vinyl section - didn't buy anything cuz i wasn't sure what those records are all about.
Avatar 1:30pm Tony Coulter:

@ MrFab: Yep, Sky Saxon did get in with those guys. They worshipped dogs, rather than gazpacho. The music is quite good in an avant psych vein, but the vocals of their leader Father Yod are an acquired taste.
Avatar 1:32pm DARK STAR MAN:

I think the best comparison to to the source family would be Moondog and Sun Ra and his orchestra mixed together and Popul Vuh/Ashra Tenple in the producer's chair?
  1:34pm MrFab:

They worshipped dogs?! And I thought cat people were the crazy ones!
Amazing description, DSM. Did they have songs about dogs? Because I will march back to Amoeba and buy me some o' that action.
Avatar 1:34pm northguineahills:

Tony has been in a pop FM vein today, I like it,

Mocata, would never make the connection w/ Matmos.
Avatar 1:35pm DARK STAR MAN:

I think the album cover of Father Yod fucking one of his many wives in the most pornographic cover in the history of rock! (eh a couple of Scorpians albums excepted).
Avatar 1:35pm northguineahills:

You know you're in the right cult, when your leader dies of a hang gliding accident.
Avatar 1:37pm Tony Coulter:

I'm being a little facetious about the dog-worshipping thing -- but they did/do have a high opinion of dogs. And why not?
Avatar 1:37pm DARK STAR MAN:

Father Yod was supposed to be a multi millionaire?

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:45pm Rich in Washington:

The goddamned funniest thing just happened.
I have records I buy online delivered to me here at my office because I don't trust our rural mailbox with LP boxes, etc.
I ordered a desirable 7" record a week or so ago and today, a 12" mailer arrived in my mailbox at work. I thought it was a little weird, as I assumed it would come in a 7" shipper.
When I opened it, I was horrified to see a Three Dog Night LP inside. I was just about to contact the guy when I looked inside and spotted the 45 inside a paper sleeve tucked in the LP cover.
I gotta give that guy points for one of the best pranks I've ever had pulled on my as a record buyer.
Avatar 1:47pm Tony Coulter:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:47pm listener james from westwood:

By the way, is there a band called Three God Night? If not, there should be.
Avatar 1:49pm DARK STAR MAN:

Rich, thats funny,
I was just thinking how the US never 'progressed' from psyche to prog, like King Crimson, Genesis, Yes etc, when you mention Three Dog Night. Did'nt they have a Jon Anderson like singer?
Avatar 1:51pm DARK STAR MAN:

no but there is (was) a band called Eleventh Dream Day!

Avatar 2:00pm Tony Coulter:

"Midwestern" ... ack ... can't type today.
Avatar 2:01pm Tony Coulter:

"Magneten" -- another fake band name -- is actually Yoshio Machida & Boris Hegenbart.
Avatar 2:02pm DARK STAR MAN:

Tony I would'nt even call them semi prog! more pop/rock.
But see the connection to British bands like Supertramp/10cc etc.
  2:03pm MrFab:

I think what DSM was saying was that Euro-prog evolved naturally out of psych, but American prog seemed to come of it's own accord. Speaking of Beefheart, him and Zappa hated psych, and made their version of america prog as a reaction against it.
Avatar 2:04pm DARK STAR MAN:

Tony - like the David Blumin premiums you have been playing, would his shows be of interest to heads!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:05pm pacific standard simon:

Dixie Dregs.

Fusion often sounded like the American version of Prog.
Avatar 2:06pm Tony Coulter:

@ Dark Star Man: Yep, Daniel B.'s shows are indeed head-suitable.
Avatar 2:07pm DARK STAR MAN:

that s true PSS Us had great Jazz Rock bands, Mahavishnu, Weather Report, Romantic Warrior etc.
Could be argued as great as prog.
Avatar 2:07pm Tony Coulter:

For me, the two best American prog bands are The Muffins and The Rascal Reporters.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:43pm pacific standard simon:

I think that's the problem, Tony -- the point of Prog was supposed to be its inclusiveness. I still count Sandy Bull as Prog.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:44pm Uncle Michael:

I thought the point of Prog was the high-brow aspirations.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:47pm Uncle Michael:

In the sense that it has anything to do with symphonic composition utilizing a rock sonic palette, Zappa beat most everyone to the first turn. Too bad about all the dick and poo poo jokes.
Avatar 2:49pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Brilliance. Cheers. All things yay.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:51pm pacific standard simon:

You could look at it that way, UM, but anytime you start including anything outside of low-brow rock into rock, it's going to look like aspiring to something above yourself.
Avatar 2:51pm Tony Coulter:

These days, prog is a style rather than an attitude, I think.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:52pm Rich in Washington:

I too tend to lump stuff like Prog, RIO, Kraut, Avant Rock (Residents, etc.) together. Probably because I was raised on radio that did that, played all that stuff together. It seemed nameless, not tagged and classified as much.

I discovered a huge world of multiple obscure sub-sub-sub genres at the same time (age 11, thanks to the record-collection of a well-versed relative) so I grew up just calling all of it "underground" & figured that was classification enough.

Oops -- guess I'll be running over a bit in under to back-announce this set.
Avatar 3:00pm Tony Coulter:

"in under" ... Cheese-us ... I mean, "in order." Thanks, Uncle Michael!

The way Alex' voice is in back of the guitar on this just kills me. So beautiful.

I just don't think that the background of most US rock bands of the late 60s leant themselves easily to Orchestral classical music as say Pink Floyd, Deep Purple were signed to labels that could easily get them whole Orchestras to play with them.
After all Neil Young had to come to the UK to get an Orcheatra to play on Harvest - Discuss!
