9:04am Jack:Voice or theremin? 9:04am Jack:Oh, good morning Bob and listeners! ♥ 9:06am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:Wh♂Wh♂Wh♂
♥ 9:09am Mike East:hey Harryhausen fans, they're playing "The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms" at Film Forum on Tuesday.
Good morning, Bob!
♥ 9:14am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:BeastWiki :
- that's a year & 1/2 before Godzilla was released.
- As someone said in FamousMonsters of Filmland (or suchlike) in days of yore - Harryhausen gave us Surrealism in a world of Schlock.
...Nothing against Schlock, of course...
♥ 9:17am Mike East:...of course ♥ 9:17am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:- it hurts to lose Marian MacPartland - it is a real loss
- but she was active & relevant ~20 years longer than most of us will probably live !
- w/ Alice - what a treat.
♥ 9:22am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:...it *really is* Debussy... ♥ 9:23am Mike East:night people did a great "debussy explained" episode last thursday ♥ 9:25am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:...? - maybe I've misjudged that Program... 9:26am Moe:How about spinning.... the Doors... summers almost gone... ♥ 9:29am Mike East:you have to be patient with shows that are all talk...give them a chance. Those guys are hilarious, in my opinion. 9:30am Moe:Saw Elysium last night... Best movie of the summer ♥ 9:31am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:Ah - Interwebz...
- Are these the right lines to that Doors? :
Morning found us calmly unaware
Noon burned gold into our hair
At night, we swam the Laughing sea
♥ 9:31am Mike East:...though I'll readily admit, they're not for everyone.
@Moe, I'm jealous. I really wanna see that one.
♥ 9:32am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:SciFi ? ♥ 9:35am Mike East:@RevRabbit - worth noting to you that they've also done a few episodes on astrology. ♥ 9:37am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:Indeed.
Think! We're the 1st in all History to have Recordings 100 years old - & ongoing...
♥ 9:41am Mike East:to have your dream come true every 7 days is a wonderful thing, Bob. ♥ 9:42am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:- there's the BeachBoys box Good Vibrations :
...I picked up Disc3 of it @ a CD store I worked @ - just left there a bit beat up w/ no jewelcase
- I love how that stuff happens - & suchlike becomes 'essential' Music for one...
♥ 9:43am Mike East:I found a box of CD's in an apartment I moved into once. Some of the finds defined an era for me ♥ 9:48am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:Noirce!
...a Promo @ another store - 'Moonlight Towers' by Coffee Sergeants from Austin. Have had to go Searching them to hear anything about them anywhere whatsoever - but I
...Stuff like that...
- btw: I usually work Sat. - so if I'm taking up too much oxygen on the Board here - it won't happen much!...
9:50am Moe:Yeah, sci fi, from director of District 9... Well done... 9:54am glenn:oxygen sucker upper. ♥ 9:54am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:Thx. Good to hear:
- Sorry to say I expect very little from current SciFi cinema
- partly I theorize because Future Shock has become Present Shock
- & partly because people are dumbed-down & want ActionAdventure cop crap thinly veiled as SciFi
- &/or such shoot'emup violence is reality now...
♥ 9:55am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:Please Post also glenn ! ...I'll open another window... 10:01am glenn:hmmm. notwithstanding monsters, sci fi is basically just westerns with ray guns and space ships. 10:02am fred:Good morning Bob and listeners.
I really liked that Six Boys in Trouble track. Any idea where I could find that LP? A label maybe?
♥ 10:03am duke:Good morning all 10:04am Moe:Sure, lots of hardware, action and violence... But also social commentary and current events... Cloaked in an adventure that takes place in the future... ♥ 10:04am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:...don't knock the o.s.u. !: It's how they killed Godzila the 1st time - altho' - consequences later...
- well - yeah - schlock - ActionAdventure has it's place. I just miss *Ideas* - yerknow ?
- As for Monsters - I found 'The Monster Show' by David J. Skal a great one as far as what *that's* all about...
- Marty McSorley - others?- has/ve played SixBoys too - real street recordings from - late 50s/early60s?? I wonder what became of those kids - not too much good probably...
10:06am glenn:then again, jules verne wrote the first sci fi (i think) back when cowboys roamed the earth so..... 10:07am Jack:SF movies, low budget indie: "Primer" and "Monsters" Start there for some real science fiction.
My personal faves are SF comedies, ie. "Fifth Element" "Galaxy Quest" "Tremors"...etc
♥ 10:08am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:1st SciFi: 'Frankenstein' by wife of greatest Poet in History. ♥ 10:08am Mike East:@Jack - have you seen "Paul"? That's a good scifi comedy. 10:09am glenn:galaxy quest put me on the floor, i was laughing so hard. ♥ 10:09am Mike East:I was watching "Escape From LA" this morning. I forgot Steve Buscemi was in that 10:10am Jack:mike, yes, I think. pegg & frost? They are funny. I also like apocolyptic horror comedy. ♥ 10:11am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:Humor & Horror & Awe... ♥ 10:12am Mike East:they have another one of those coming out soon, I believe..."the worlds end" 10:12am fred:Smithsonian Folkways. This looks like a costly site to visit. I need a new job ♥ 10:13am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:- deffo worth exploring the supposed 'Void' between Elvis & Beatles. It's true & it's not true.
- Also - the truism(/not truism): 'No Poetry in Rock'n'Roll before Dylan'...
♥ 10:15am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:What a career RosemaryC. had - starting as an inexplicably precocious childsinger... 10:15am glenn:you don't need a new job, you just need a higher credit limit. :) 10:15am scott:As much as Mitch Miller is infamous for his hatred of rock 'n' roll, which kept Columbia out of the rock biz until the mid-'60s, he was definitely ahead of his time as a producer. All of his productions feature interesting, innovative, attention-getting sonic frills that nobody else was doing at the time. 10:17am Jack:I loved this Steppenwolf album. ♥ 10:17am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:- a bit like LesPaul ? - @ once futuristic & pre-Rock. Back to the Future (RetroFuturism)... 10:17am scott:And thank you Bob for playing Rosemary Clooney and Steppenwolf back-to-back. I love both equally, and that's the essence of FMU right there. ♥ 10:17am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:- gawrsh - Steppenwolf, it's true... 10:18am Stuart Rose:following up Rosemary Clooney with Steppenwolf. Quintessential Brainen. 10:18am glenn:steppenwolf - the best canadian band that nobody thinks of as being canadian. 10:19am Moe:Thanks for. Mary Ann and her shakey hands... The who were a 45 hit machine for many years... Fast, punchy tunes blasting from am radio... ♥ 10:20am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:Pete Townshend coined the term 'Power Pop' it is said. ♥ 10:24am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:truism/not-truism: No Electricity in Folk before Bob
- Donovan disputes ; )
- Dylan makes point HankWilliams had electricity...
10:28am scott:Glenn, Steppenwolf was only semi-Canadian. They formed in L.A. after the Sparrow broke up, and of the original members, only the three ex-Sparrow guys—John Kay, Jerry Edmonton and Goldy McJohn—were from Canada. And Kay's originally German, so... ♥ 10:29am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:- similar to Buffalo Springfield ? ♥ 10:29am Paul Dee:Mornin y'all 10:32am Moe:Animals, house of the rising sun... Pre electric bob... And where bob lifted the Hammond organ sound... ♥ 10:33am Mike East:Mornin P'aul ♥ 10:34am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:- & the Searchers before the bYRdS... ♥ 10:34am Mike East:its was the folkies who were pissed about electricity. But none of them would have been able to play to more than 50 people without it. ♥ 10:34am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:- you see Bob hanging w/ Alan Price in 'Don't Look Back'. Gotta love Animals. 10:36am glenn:george barnes played electric guitar on a dylan track (mixed up confusion) in 1962. ♥ 10:39am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:- Judy Henske on Elektra worked w/ Bob (harmonica on her record??) & gets ProtoFolkRock cred...
- right glenn - & they didn't put it out...
- Mitch M an oboist (sp.??) w/ Classical background - just like George Martin!
10:40am glenn:as a single, they did. ♥ 10:41am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:Mike E.: - said the soundman! (No?) Bob credits primitive P.A.s & everyone's technical ignorance then for part of the reaction to him Going Electric (makes sense).
glenn: - Oh! They did.

Bob Dylan chronology
1962 "Blowin' in the Wind"
Mixed-Up Confusion is a song written and recorded by Bob Dylan. It was recorded with an electric band on November 14, 1962 during the sessions for The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan, but was not used on that album, which, aside from "Corrina, Corrina", was entirely acoustic. Instead the song, backed with "Corrina, Corrina" (a different take than the Freewheelin' one), a traditional blues song, appeared as Dylan's first single, released in the U.S. on 14 December 1962 as Columbia 4-42656. According to legend, Dylan wrote the song in a cab on the way to the Columbia Studios for the recording session. This version was released in the Biograph box set in 1985. A different, previously unreleased, take from the same session appeared on the compilation album Masterpieces in 1978. Both sides of the single are now available, in mono, as bonus tracks on the 2-CD Jasmine release Carolyn Hester Introduces Bob Dylan.
♥ 10:45am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:Nice ! His 1st single!
- I may be conflating Carolyn Hester w/ Judy Henske a bit in fact...
♥ 10:45am Mike East:I'm more the guy who tells the soundman where to be at what time and who to see when they get there. ♥ 10:45am Mike East:I profit off the PA. 10:47am fred:What pisses me off is all these people who want to dictate what artists should or shouldn't do. You can dislike it at first then like it (happens often to me), or dislike it for good. It didn't stop with folk vs. electric. I had this conversation with Taraka Larson last year ♥ 10:56am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:- like - seeing a Beatles Tribute - & thinking: They certainly have better P.A. than the Beatles came close to! - been playing it a lot longer then they did too..
...Arlo Guthrie explained it as the Folkies didn't understand yet that Rock could be meaningful & valid that way. (The 'Authenticity' police.) Awfully strange to us now on the other side when so much is based on Bob's innovations.
- Bob says: Was Woody Guthrie having Chart Hits? Leadbelly? What do I care?!
...I think Dylan should get more cred as ProtoPunk for facing audiences he knew would boo him & directly challenging them! (He doesn't because being Wordy & Serious is considered specifically AntiPunk - another Genre Authenticity Police thing)...
♥ 11:00am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:Thx BobB ! Rich & Delicious Mix !
