I was hoping to take a break from WFMU and go get lunch, but how can I leave when you play KFW?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:03pm DCE:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:03pm Scott Williams:

an excellent point, Bayta! Welcome.

@DCE - yup!

Thanks, Scott. But it's on your head if I starve to death. Just sayin'

Is the title a reference to the Museum?
Avatar 3:09pm Bayta:

But what do you do about sleep, steve? I was up till 5am listening to this damn radio station. Thank goodness for coffee!
Avatar 3:09pm βrian:

"Beaubourg," I meant.
  3:09pm index:

This music was featured in a movie- What was it!!??
Avatar 3:10pm Bayta:

Silver Apples of the Moon? In a movie?

  3:11pm Dean:

Per that wikithingumpediathingum, "The album is meant to reflect life in the Beaubourg district of Paris, when Vangelis lived in the early '70s. Beaubourg is a musical representation of the Centre Pompidou in Paris."

Avatar 3:13pm Bayta:

That movie sounds pretty damn awesome. I would watch it even if it didn't feature Morton Subotnick.
  3:13pm Tailored Dandy:

More Silver Apples/Contact!
Avatar 3:14pm Sandy in Houston:

Yeah that was extra good!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:14pm steve:

anyone else see I Dream of Wires (modular doc)? Subotnik was probably the best of the 100+ interviewees. such a thoughtful and charming guy.
  3:16pm index:

Vangelis at 10min mark - no??
Avatar 3:17pm βrian:

Because we need to know such things: Morton peaked as a baby name in 1923 at the 254th most popular name for boys. (In the U.S.)
Avatar 3:19pm Bayta:

Would a Morton be called Mort for short? Mort is the best discworld book.

ST-37 track was amazing! This DJ Female Convict Scorpion is also good.

ST-37 obv got the name from Chrome - I dunno where they got it
Avatar 4:17pm Bayta:

Can't figure out if the dude is also singing in Hindi. Sounds almost Egyptian or Turkish or something.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:18pm Guido from Cologne:

ST37 is a coded classification of a group of construction steels.

Unknown supposely known as Unknown!

Yeah how could this talent be unknown. More likely they were unpaid...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:34pm Scott Williams:

@Bayta, found it! it's on the FMA, see the playlist
Avatar 4:35pm Bayta:

Sun Ra. Still at the top of the charts on WFMU.
Avatar 4:53pm Bayta:

Brooding, perhaps?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:54pm Scott Williams:

brooding is good, i'll take brooding, long as it doesn't get sulking
Avatar 4:57pm Bayta:

Brooding and arresting. I love it.
Avatar 5:02pm doca:

I was going to say this guy sounded like Richard Young...A question: does Youngs already has more albums than Jandek? Hi Scott and all!
Avatar 5:02pm TDK60:

It's a loud world in Gaza now, hospitals and U.N. refuges being bombed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:04pm fleep:

Also fairly loud in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Ukraine, Nigeria, Uganda ...

Betty! Encore!
  5:08pm DJ Pork Roll:

Richard Youngs... is he channeling Silver Apples!?!?!?!
Avatar 5:08pm TDK60:

@ Fleep, yes unfortunately. A moment of mental silence maybe?
  5:08pm Marie:

This is great. Scott!!!!

Avatar 5:11pm Cecile:

hey, Scott, are you an Associates/Billy McKenzie fan?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:15pm Scott Williams:

@Cecile, not familiar enough to say. should I be?
Avatar 5:16pm Cecile:

I thnk since you like Scott Walker, you would like Billy Mackenzie's vocal acrobatics. And their hit singles are some of the weirdest popular records ever made.
Avatar 5:18pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

And now, regarding the Concern track: I may again feel the need to yay.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:19pm Scott Williams:

@Rev, I think a YAY would be a suitable reaction here
Avatar 5:20pm TDK60:

@ Rev.T.D. This Concern track does capture the imagination in my gray cauliflower upstairs.
Avatar 5:21pm TDK60:

Hi Scott, Been a long time since I was here to hear during the actual show in progess.
Avatar 5:22pm Bayta:

Re: Concern - This is somehow not the right time of the day for this track.
Avatar 5:23pm northguineahills:

My concern for Concern is uplifting.
Avatar 5:23pm Bayta:

A few hours hence it would be perfect. Maybe I can just close my eyes and pretend it's twilight though.
  5:26pm !.!:

GR8 show, my man..,,,!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:26pm Scott Williams:

welcome back TDK60! @Bayta, sometimes it's nice to have control over the time of day
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:27pm steve:

Bayta, seems very appropriate for those of us ending the work day
Avatar 5:28pm Bayta:

Time of day be damned. I need this record.
Avatar 5:28pm Chris from DC:

Wow this Concern is great.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:29pm steve:

its like the non smoker equivalent of that end of work/day cigarette
  5:29pm Marie:

This souds like somtng Fabio would play. rather a serious word, concern.
  5:30pm DJ Pork Roll:

Avatar 5:30pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

...aye, Marie. But typographically, it looks great in all lowercase characters..
Avatar 5:30pm Sem Chumbo:

~ perfect.
Avatar 5:30pm TDK60:

Where's Concern from? Is it a group? A single artiste? Interesting how one track can get everyone all excited about being hypnotized/calmed/what have you.
Avatar 5:31pm Bayta:

Oh it's Gordon Ashworth. Only recently picked up another release of his.
Avatar 5:32pm Bayta:

Here you are TDK - www.discogs.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:32pm Scott Williams:

Concern is one guy: Gordon Ashworth. not sure where he's from, CD's on Digitalis www.digitalisindustries.com
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:32pm steve:

the Osc Innards guy? no kidding
Avatar 5:34pm Bayta:

"Noise/experimental/metal/grindcore musician, originally from California but now residing in Oregon." according to discogs. His release under his own name S.T.L.A is pretty great also. Was sold on that after just one listen as well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:34pm Scott Williams:

thanks for doing the discogs, Bayta!
Avatar 5:35pm TDK60:

We have Researchers on board! Thankee!
Avatar 5:36pm doca:

Gordon Ashworth has one recent album that received kinda of heavy play here on FMU, this one I guess orindal.limitedrun.com...

My girlfriend met George Carlins brother today, Patrick Carlin. He was rocking a WFMU shirt, that's what sparked the convo. (Daymaker Material)
Avatar 5:43pm Bayta:

Yeah, doca, it is. I bought it after listening to just a couple of tracks from it.
