Wow, love me some Billy Cobham. The opening from Mahavishnu's "Vital Transformation" is the most kick-ass drum intro ever!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:09pm Michael:

Cobham played at my college around '77 with George Duke and I remember he had quite a large kit for back then.
  3:09pm Laura L:

The municipality must've put the cross on top to keep the vampire variety of bats away.

OK: "Bat-ROOST". --Thought for for a second it was like the town's smoke-house, "BatRoast"

It looks like there's a human-sized door on the front, but no stairs leading to it. This signage 30ft in the air also suggests something missing from this picture's story.

Between last week and this I got this album. I rather like it, don't you know. It's not the only Nilsson tribute album, but it's...the most recent.
  3:18pm Woo:

I saw Mott the Hoople open for Mahavishnu Orchestra. Someone threw a bottle at Ian Hunter. After he jumped off the stage and kicked ass, Mott's set was over. I miss those incongruous pairings.

ian could probably still kick ass, at what, 72?

Similar: One time I saw the Mahavishnu Orchestra, the opener was Taj Mahal. He introduced his backup singers, the Pointer Sisters.
  3:20pm P-90:

Saw B. Cobham I-don't-know-how many times (including w/the underrated Jazz is Dead combo) and he was always very muscular and big-kitted.

"Maybe a DNS issue?" is my usual answer with site-not-found issues. Sometimes it's actually right...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:37pm rrg:

If you modify the link in the browser to explicitly stick "http://" in front of it, it seems to work.

Might be something to do with how this site modifies links for display. Or maybe it's more subtle.

I'm using Safari too. Clicking on the link as displayed here returns a page with the text "page not found" from the Shorpy site. Explicitly adding "http://" at the front of the Safari-displayed URL goes to the page.

I swear. For me, anyway.

This is one of those songs that I recognize from the first couple of notes.

  3:47pm P-90:

OK, "mosquito control" in times of much malaria. On stilts to "facilitate the harvesting of guano by the truckload". Yum.

The "stilts" look at first glance like they're 4 by 4's and the whole thing is like a little dollhouse bat-roost. Then you see the little dude. On closer look the stilts are concrete poured in plywood molds, which captures the wood grain patterns on the surface.

"Guano by the truckload": remember the 2012 Republican Debates?
  3:50pm whattawino:

OK, I have to say I saw a show in Orlando '72 with Mahavishnu, Todd Rundgren and...George Carlin! It was end of the year college show. Yow!

See? they needed a patsy, so they went and rounded up some "Greenwich Village bohemian"-type Jazz muso with a "$10 a day" "smack addiction" and announced they'd cracked that PSH case WIDE open......fuckin NYPD, they're in a fuckin time warp, they've been binge-watching too many Boardwalk Empire DVDs

Speaking of Jan Hammer, I saw him with Jeff Beck. Heart was in the middle and Boston was the opener. 1977. I think the power went out at one point.

@Shaun: I was certain he used that loop in more than one of his shows. I still sounds like I heard him use it a couple times over the years, wonder if there's way to check that...or maybe he's made a lot of similar-vibe loops for what he does, so it sounds familiar for that reason

Thomas is cool. Doesn't he sing the Beatles?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:56pm Matt from Springfield:

Sung to an 80s karaoke version too, it sounds like.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:57pm Matt from Springfield:

Why yes, Carm! Thomas sings the Beatles, on "Thomas Sings The Beatles", his Irwin/WFMU only album!
Avatar 4:57pm Droll:

I like Thomas, really, but I think all the reverb masks his articulation. He doesn't need autotune, and he doesn't need all the 'verb.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:57pm efd:

@Matt you're my back-up choice if I can't track that guy down.

he doesn't want just ANY 8 tracks. he wants QUAD 8 tracks.

@Andrew: Sounds like a creationist to me. Did he believe only small zucchini were brought on the Ark??
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:14pm Matt from Springfield:

@RRN63: As far as I know, I don't think Brian *needed* acid to imagine his visions--psychedelic in the Beach Boys' own way for sure, just not in the acid-rock style of that song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:14pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- obviously a non-rural person who never knew anybody w/ a garden trying to fob off 1,000 large zucchini on you...

right...not even quad did I own. the equipment is still expensive now, I think...at least usually if it's in mint condition. 5.1 is fine for me. 7.5 whatever

Avatar 5:37pm Droll:

Alison, That's a brilliant idea! I'm gonna make one of those -- a machine that takes cash and gives a card with "bitcoins" on it. Who are they going to come after when they find out the card is blank? I'd rather have anonymous cash than anonymous bitcoin.

@RRN63: He's quite a drummer--listen to past H&M performances, the majority of songs have Irwin behind the drums.

Matt i may actually still have 9+ homemade theremins in a closet somewhere. but theyre light sensitive, dont have any sort of enclosures and are impossible to play. i suppose thats probly perfect for FMU then.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:42pm Irwin:

Matt: Not true. We always have 5 or 6 drummers, we each play on 6 to 8 tunes.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:53pm Matt from Springfield:

I remember Thomas Storck's lead performance--that was GREAT!
Avatar 5:54pm Droll:

Mandl, "who's real instrument is bass", is stealing throne time from actual drummers! It's amazing to hear how the different drummers get different sound from the same kit. EFD gets the best tone from the toms, he must hit a dime-sized spot in the middle, but I like Bryce's playing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:54pm Matt from Springfield:

Have a good evening Lovecraft. Enjoy dinner--get some Muff-ins for dessert!

Clara Venice, I know her work, she's aiming to be the new Clara Rockmore. Then again she has to fight for musical cred against the tide of dudes who get one look at her and want to shag her.
Rather like Clara Rockmore in her time.

@Irwin, lovely show, great bat-roost, the whole deal.
Looking forward to your marathon shifts and especially your H&M Sin performance!
