Evening, friends and neighbors.
Avatar 9:06pm deanland:

Nice way to kick it off, with sandy Denny ... just before Thanksgiving.
Avatar 9:08pm Dave Mandl:

Hey deadland. Thanks. Yeah, very autumnal, that record. As usual, the "Late November" was a pure coincidence. Funny how these things happen.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:09pm BDR:

Hey Man, thanks, I hadn't thought of Bailiff in a bit.

There are no coincidences round here.

Yes, a Gabriel reference, not a request.
Avatar 9:12pm deanland:

OMG, Dave. Look how you spelled my name. Much as I like your show, I will never again say, "you killed me" as per the above.
Avatar 9:12pm Dave Mandl:

Hey BDR. I guess not. There are forces moving my fingers toward the CD decks, but I can't begin to guess what's behind them.
Avatar 9:14pm deanland:

Tell me you didn't roll the i Ching or pick Tarot cards before typing that.
  9:14pm LovecraftDude888:

I was just playing After Halloween last night! Having had a crap Halloween I had to play catch up.
Avatar 9:15pm Droll:

Studio jazz recordings often seem to be missing applause at the end of each solo. It can make a great performance sound like it happened during rehearsal.
  9:15pm LovecraftDude888:

and now it's cold as heck out there. oh the humanitee! I had to spring for some new Isotoners today.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:16pm fleep:

The Jerry Garcia Ride at Deadland is one of my favorites. You get to drive the train.
Avatar 9:17pm Droll:

fleep, Watch your speed!
  9:17pm LovecraftDude888:

Deadland? where is dat? hadn't heard of that as yet. I had some vision of having a Pink Floyd Convention the other day....I wish I had the bucks to do it. Let's do it! Get a grant.
Avatar 9:17pm Dave Mandl:

deanland: No I Ching, tarot cards, or Oblique Strategies, I swear.
Avatar 9:17pm deanland:

@fleep: !!!
  9:18pm LovecraftDude888:

what about the Wharf Rat ride....you get to play with the rat
Avatar 9:18pm deanland:

Whew, Dave. I thought maybe myThanksgivings were numbered, and this might be my Last November.
Avatar 9:18pm Dave Mandl:

Oops, "deanland," sorry. No Jerry Garcia reference intended.
Avatar 9:19pm Dave Mandl:

And good evening, LCD888, Droll, fleep.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:20pm BDR:

Damn you for not knowing the obscure allusions we grab that we think you intend! Adjusting foil.

Hi Dave and all the listeners.

Hey there, Richard.

The temperatures' dropping faster than Courtney Stodden's knickers!

I just read Katy Perry opening AMA Awards....Am. Med. Assoc.? what? does anybody care?
Avatar 9:25pm JakeGould:

It’s nice & cold. When I go outdoors, I know only the strong folks are out there. I respect them. They respect me. No nonsense. It’s nice & cold.
Avatar 9:26pm Droll:

Deadland would be an awesome theme park to run: very low overhead because all you need is a parking lot to charge for and everyone would bring their own party. Stinky hippies don't need or use hygienic facilities.
  9:26pm The Frisco Kid:

!To rub it in, but It's about 55F here.
  9:27pm LovecraftDude888:

You can stay at the adjacent Mars Hotel bla bla bla replica I'd like to see like, a Captain Beefheart Park! now THAT would be worth admission. The My Human Gets Me Blues ride.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:29pm pacific standard simon:

Back from supper, with a jasmine ale. Howdy, Dave.
  9:30pm LovecraftDude888:

So what up with new Rough Trade shop in Bklyn? Is it gonna be good or what? saying N. 9th St. for that. I hope it's good.
  Swag For Life Member 9:34pm 12539:

Dave, by taking the first letter of every other word in your last announcement I now have the location of Jimmy Hoffa's body. Maybe the next one should be a little harder.
Avatar 9:34pm Droll:

My favorite tune on this album is Every Kinda People, this is s a very solid album. Good Kinks cover, too.
Avatar 9:35pm deanland:

@12539 The 3d letter of the second word of every other show leads you to Judge Crater.
Avatar 9:36pm deanland:

The tough part is how it takes weeks to get it, and then to know when Dave has cryptically switched to Amelia Earhart.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:36pm pacific standard simon:

In retrospect, it's hard for me to find Robert Palmer any more irritating than The Police, although it seemed different at the time.
  9:37pm LovecraftDude888:

I love Robert Palmer, he was one of my heroes for sure. When I met Jody Stephens back in July, I wore my best RP outfit: black slacks, white dress shirt, dark tie, and dress shoes etc. I doubt Jody cared...but I did it for a larf. The girls came and tore my outfit off. not.
  Swag For Life Member 9:38pm 12539:

deanland: Don't forget you have to ignore the "e"s. It's always "without an e" on this show.
Avatar 9:38pm Dave Mandl:

Welcome pss, 12539, Firsco, Jake.
  9:38pm LovecraftDude888:

I was always a Police fan, but god, Sting solo...not so much.
I loved when Trouser Press called n. like the sun a vacuous cavern of a record.
Avatar 9:39pm Dave Mandl:

Jimmy Hoffa's probably buried in the neighborhood where I grew up.
  9:39pm LovecraftDude888:

that tape lit. put me to sleep when I first got it. so dull it was scary.
Avatar 9:39pm deanland:

@12539: I know, which gives me such an identity crisis.
Avatar 9:39pm Dave Mandl:

Frisco, not Firsco. Sorry, trying to chew gum, type, and do a radio show.
Avatar 9:41pm deanland:

Note that Firsco came second in that string.
Avatar 9:42pm JakeGould:

Spelling bad. Alphabetical order, good.
Avatar 9:42pm Droll:

Sting's fretless playing is torture -- when not intentionally out of pitch it's unintentionally out out pitch. It's just wrong. Thankfully the producers typically dubbed in a synthesizer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:43pm pacific standard simon:

Sacha swings.
Avatar 9:43pm JakeGould:

I actually liked “Dream of the Blue Turtles.” But past that, all the irritating stuff of that solo endeavor became his core. And I have 100% no clue.
Avatar 9:44pm JakeGould:

Also, The “Dream of the Blue Turtles” tour was my first concert. Radio City. Had a t-shirt that official disintegrated 10 years ago.
Avatar 9:44pm Dave Mandl:

@Droll: He shouldn't be allowed to play a fretless. Colin Moulding (XTC), on the other hand, should.
Avatar 9:46pm Droll:

Even I owned (CS) Dream of Blue Turds: Omar Hakim, Darryl Jones, Kenny Kirkland, Branford Marsalis.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:48pm pacific standard simon:

Percy Jones for fretless president.
Avatar 9:49pm deanland:

What?! You mean "Dram of The Blue Turtles" wasn't Sting's passive aggressive plan to get Flo & Eddie to join up with BB King?
Avatar 9:51pm JakeGould:

I was 16 years old when “Dream of the Blue Turtles” came out. Forgive my youth.
Avatar 9:51pm deanland:

Dream, not Dram. Although "Dram of The Blue Turtles" has a certain pharmaceutical ring to it.
  9:52pm ttrish:

Cold? From the very north : http://www.yr.no/place/Canada/Nunavut/Iqaluit/hour_by_hour.html

Warmer air arrives in Jersey City from the south starting tomorrow, it looks like: http://www.yr.no/place/United_States/New_Jersey/Jersey_City/hour_by_hour.html
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:53pm pacific standard simon:

Drum of The Blue Turtles sounds like a rhythm band from The Bahamas.
Avatar 9:54pm JakeGould:

“Dub of the Blue Turtles” is the reggae tribute to Sting that might actually exist but I will not even attempt to Google it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:54pm pacific standard simon:

Jah, mon, I play de tenor turtle!
Avatar 10:01pm Droll:

Looks like this show's gonna be long -- 1st ID down and still now Final Stretch in sight.

Fretless: Jaco. Mick Karn close second. The instrument has many great players, Sting is the poster child for "That's enough."

My coincidence here is I listened to Don Juan's Reckless Daughter two days ago because... well.. Jaco, Alias, and Metheny are a *backing* band... At the end I wondered "What is the mood of this album?" I'm still not sure. It has one, I just can't put it in words.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:03pm pacific standard simon:

Oops, forgot about Jaco. Well, Percy's still alive.
  10:05pm The Frisco Kid:

this track is Mandlrific.
  10:08pm The Frisco Kid:

Tim Hecker.. quite nice. Reminds me a bit of William Fields. www.williamfields.com
Avatar 10:11pm Dave Mandl:

Percy Jones is one of my heroes. Jaco comes close.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:13pm pacific standard simon:

I used to own an Ampeg fretless. In my hands, it was wasted.
Avatar 10:15pm Droll:

"Jaco comes close"? Them's fightin' words, Mandl.

pss, If you are wasting any basses presently, I can help you dispose of that burden.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:17pm pacific standard simon:

Sorry, Droll, my 4-string fantasias are currently limited to the ukulele.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:20pm pacific standard simon:

I'm going to try that cut-out-of-record coaster thing, 'cause I need a replacement for my Graceland coasters.
Avatar 10:20pm Droll:

I've never heard of a "Record Coaster" before, I had to Google it. Don't the paper labels get ruined instantly? That doesn't look like a good coaster design.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:21pm pacific standard simon:

Avatar 10:22pm Dave Mandl:

Droll: You mean he doesn't come close? Well, I've always been a much bigger fan of Percy, but Jaco was great, no doubt about that.
Avatar 10:22pm Dave Mandl:

I actually took some lessons from Percy back in the '80s at some point.
Avatar 10:22pm Dave Mandl:

Maybe I'll play some Brand X?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:24pm pacific standard simon:

Percy's website, w/YouTube embedded:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:27pm pacific standard simon:

Dave, how about something from the Peter & The Wolf album, sometime?
Avatar 10:31pm Dave Mandl:

@pss: Which one, the rock one from the mid-'70s?
Avatar 10:32pm Droll:

Sorry -- I was in the kitchen, you already know you compete with dinner time.

Of course Percy is one of the great players I was talking about, I'm actually generous with respect for bassists. I even like my own fretless playing. (Droll) Humor doesn't always carry through the internetz.

You may most certainly play Brand X, you're well below you usual prog/fusion balance so far.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:32pm pacific standard simon:

Yeah, with Eno as the wolf. NOT the Bowie one.
Avatar 10:35pm Dave Mandl:

I'd completely forgotten about that record. Not sure if FMU has a copy. I definitely don't.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:36pm pacific standard simon:

We haven't discussed the return of the drummer special, lately, and this makes me wonder... why not do a bassist special edition of World of Echo?
Avatar 10:37pm Dave Mandl:

Funny, but the subject of a second drum special came up just yesterday, because I saw Irwin. A bass special might be testing people's tolerance, though of course I'd love to do one.
Avatar 10:38pm Dave Mandl:

I'd focus on things like Jack Casady's opening bass note on the first Jefferson Airplane record.
Avatar 10:41pm Droll:

I'm so glad the station's undisputed thunder-tubs master, Bryce, will be on the next drum special, and it's so soon!
  10:41pm ttrish:

Drum special2. Yeah!
Maybe you could make the bounds a bit porous and allow for a bit of bass?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:42pm pacific standard simon:

Don't be too cautious; there's a lot of us former bass players out there.

Casady is a big yes. We discussed Charlie Haden, I believe. Plenty more favorites.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:46pm Ike:

Hello hello hello!
  Swag For Life Member 10:48pm 12539:

Getting all fancy with the animated gifs, I see.
Avatar 10:48pm Dave Mandl:

Hey there, ttrish and Ike.
Avatar 10:51pm Droll:

12539, Some people wear their bling all the time, I'm not totally into it, but they might be fun sometimes.
Avatar 10:54pm Dave Mandl:

ttrish: I'm not sure about that. If we let bassists in everyone will want to get in.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:57pm osvi:

Dave, glad to hear the record fair went well. I went on my 30th bday, a long time ago. Bought my Chris Ware 'FMU t-shirt there. This is some nice right here...
Avatar 10:57pm Droll:

Mandl, You already posed as a drummer because you're just a bassist. Things go downhill quickly...

Rockin' Roy into Parmegiani was a gearshift.
Avatar 10:59pm Dave Mandl:

Blame my parents for not allowing me to get a drumset. That's why I became a bassist. Come to think of it, they wouldn't allow me to get a bass either, but I bought one anyway.
  11:00pm fascinoma:

wonderful show tonight, Dave. thanks for the Parmegiani.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:03pm pacific standard simon:

Also, there's nothing at all that I like about Queen, aside from bassist John Deacon, whom I adore. Also Martin Gordon, of Sparks (Island Records version). EFD will know.
Avatar 11:05pm deanland:

My 1966 Ludwig Pearl/Zildjian Cymbals/Gretsch accessories drum set came a a result of a desperate bribe from my parents. Best deal I may ever have made with them, come to think of it.
Avatar 11:05pm deanland:

Typo: came as a result (not a a result)
Avatar 11:08pm Dave Mandl:

Hi osvi. And thanks, fascinoma.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:11pm Cubicle Carl:

This sounds a little like Ken Nordine.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:11pm pacific standard simon:

Regarding Jack Casady, I'd go for that first note at the beginning of "House At Poohneil Corners", the Yggdrasil bass, as it was said.

My other idol on bass was Paul Gray, of Eddie & The Hot Rods.
Avatar 11:16pm Droll:

Cerrone is a drummer and he's still alive. He did disco mega-jams!
Avatar 11:20pm Droll:

. o O ( Humor is completely filtered out by the comments board, or I'm not funny, or DM has no sense of humor, or some combination )
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:21pm pacific standard simon:

You gotta LOL it like you talk it, lest you lose that beat.
Avatar 11:22pm Dave Mandl:

I have no sense of humor. Also, I could only see the first couple of words of your comment when I was on mic, including the crucial bit about the disco jams. Oh well.
Avatar 11:23pm Dave Mandl:

There are a few Cerrones, though the disco Cerrone was the king.
Avatar 11:23pm Droll:

Recently Kenzo said he couldn't figure out if I was making a joke or "standing on [my] head". 30-40 seconds of delay also throws off timing.
  Swag For Life Member 11:24pm 12539:

I'll never trust anything out of Mandl's mouth ever again.
Avatar 11:24pm Dave Mandl:

@pss: Seriously, listen to when Casady comes in at the beginning of "Blues from an Airplane." Four little notes, but you can tell it's a master at work.
Avatar 11:25pm Dave Mandl:

Casady's playing on "After Bathing at Baxter's" generally is the best.
Avatar 11:27pm Droll:

All talk and no special, that's what they say...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:29pm pacific standard simon:

I will, I will.

I'm also quite fond of that first Hot Tuna record.

Also nuts about Spencer Dryden's drum intro to "She Has Funny Cars".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:31pm pacific standard simon:

Drummers are iconic, bassists are ironic.
  11:31pm ttrish:

..Drums. Yes.
So many frequencies in the spectrum. So few that are syncopated.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:32pm pacific standard simon:

Although The Airplane may reverse that pattern.
Avatar 11:33pm Droll:

Okay -- Let's say we compromise with a rhythm section show: Burford-Wetton, Ward-Butler, Rogers-Edwards, etc.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:34pm pacific standard simon:

Thopmson-Edwards, I meant.

pss, I think you mean McCartney-McCartney.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:35pm pacific standard simon:

I think not.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:38pm pacific standard simon:

All-cello show would be pushing it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:41pm pacific standard simon:

Is the drummer a part of the quartet?
Avatar 11:43pm Dave Mandl:

The Balanescus? No, isn't.
Avatar 11:43pm JakeGould:

This is nice. Thanks, Dave.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:45pm pacific standard simon:

That's what I was wondering. Sometimes I have trouble waiting for the back-announce.
Avatar 11:52pm Dave Mandl:

That should have been "No, *he* isn't" (part of the quartet).
Avatar 11:52pm Dave Mandl:

Jake: Yeah, I agree.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:54pm pacific standard simon:

If I wanted to follow anyone on Twitter, which I would right before I slashed my wrists, I would follow you.

Plus, I already follow you on Tumbler.
  Swag For Life Member 11:54pm 12539:

Funny "coincidence" about those pieces with "II/2" in the name. Now I can set my decoder ring for next week's show.
Avatar 11:56pm Dave Mandl:

@pss: Don't do it. (I mean slash your wrists! You definitely should follow me.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:57pm pacific standard simon:

Don't worry, ain't gonna (slash, twitter, facebook).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:58pm Ike:

Hearing Biosphere is always good. I believe Biosphere features someone who used to be in Bel Canto, a favorite from the 90s.
Avatar 11:58pm JakeGould:

You follow him on the Tumbler? What about Tumblr. I think now that Yahoo! took over the spambot filters on Tumblr are busted.
Avatar 11:59pm Droll:

12539, Don't forget "Double Fun" and "Eight Electronic Pieces" or you'll never find the right Numbers Station.

DM, Sorry your Mellotron is broken and you had you use so many real strings this week. Until the next Final Stretch...

Pot your bed down!
  Swag For Life Member 11:59pm 12539:

Thanks, Dave.

Enjoyed listening, Dave. To-do's got done. Thanks.
