Back from a 3 mile walk with my guy and our doggies. Thought I better tune in and see what is happening at the Bodega. Won't be staying very long.

psyched for this one. I've only grabbed the first couple of these volumes from Scavenged Luxury in the past. It took me so long to getting around to digesting them I haven't gone back. Probably should do that now....

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:36pm listener james from westwood:

I see from Wikipedia that New Wave Theater was shown occasionally on Night Flight, which means I likely saw some segments here and there. Also shows that The Plugz appeared on NWT, which also pleases me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:38pm listener james from westwood:

The NWT entry itself also adds more evidence to the already existing mountain of evidence that (a) Harold Ramis was a mensch and (b) Chevy Chase is an asshole.
Avatar 7:39pm glenn:

chevy chase is indeed an asshole and a douche.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:40pm listener james from westwood:

And a dick. So now we've got the entire crotchular area covered.

we get the d.v.d.s from england. it's excellent. i wholeheartedly recommend it.

I mostly remember Alice Bag from The Decline of Western Civilization
Avatar 8:18pm schmutz:

@jesse seriously missing JP! lived by Forest Hills for several years (Cambridge now). Hope to end up there again someday!
Avatar 8:19pm doca:

@hyde: It's very interesting. I'm noticing I'll need a few days to digest it, which is good. There's an Apichatpong Weerasethakul feel to it, which means it's on the right track of cinema for me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:19pm Uncle Michael:

An old friend of mine is the editor on The Decline of Western Civilization III. She just posted today on FB that it's coming out on DVD...after 13 years.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:20pm listener james from westwood:

Criminally I have only seen part of one of the Declines (II). But I did see all of "Urgh! A Music War" when FMU played it between documentaries at one of the Record Fairs.
Avatar 8:21pm Jesse K:

@schmutz, I go to cambridge everyday! To be fair though, wfmu lives everywhere.
Avatar 8:21pm Holly in NC:

@hyde - Alice Bag's autobiography (Violence Girl) is really good!
Avatar 8:22pm hyde:

@doca that works for me too!

@UM even crazier is that Decline II The Metal Years has never come out on DVD in the US, near as I can tell. Came out on VHS, but that's it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:23pm Gary:

@Michael -- that's awesome!

Sushi was pretty exotic in 1982

as were cell ("mobile") phones.

(...or were you just referring to the song?!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:30pm Gary:

LOL, yes.
Avatar 8:30pm hyde:

@Gary yeah, though sushi had really been in LA since the 60's. That was the key place it got its start in the US.
Avatar 8:31pm hyde:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:31pm Gary:

Is that true? I had no idea, Hyde -- I honestly thought of it as an 80s thing, maybe because I was in San Francisco then
Avatar 8:32pm doca:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:32pm Uncle Michael:

I was eating sushi in Colorado in the late '70s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:33pm Gary:

Dang. How could I be so misinformed? I even read that book, The Story of Sushi. :(
Avatar 8:36pm hyde:

@Gary yeah, that guy who invented the california roll--Mashita?--was the sushi chef at Tokyo Kaikan in LA in the 60's.

Hey, Gary and everyone!
Avatar 8:37pm coelacanth:

as a child i'd heard rumours that the japanese ate their fish raw. we thought that was ultra weird, but my mother then ate raw hamburger -and milkbone dog biscuits,to prove SOMEthing... and we decided the japanese weren't that weird!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:37pm Gary:

Avatar 8:37pm hyde:

I love this weird Neil Young
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:38pm Gary:

I am embarrassed to admit that I had never heard that Neil Young song until last week.
Avatar 8:38pm hyde:

@coelacanth that's hilarious
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:38pm Uncle Michael:

Way before I ever heard of sushi we had sashimi at Kiyo's in Chacago as early as 1968.
Avatar 8:39pm hyde:

@Gary that whole record (Trans) is totally and kind of awesomely bizarre
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:40pm Gary:

He really sounds like an outsider musician, like maybe Space Lady's brother or something
Avatar 8:40pm coelacanth:

hyde, right?...i think it's much more risky to eat raw beef now.
Avatar 8:43pm hyde:

@Gary heh, yep. there's reasons David Geffen sued him for that stuff as being intentionally noncommercial
Avatar 8:44pm coelacanth:

i think lots of folks gave up on Mr.Young for a while,in the 80s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:46pm Uncle Michael:

Sashimi in the '60s in Chicago. Sushi in Colorado not as early...turns out the place didn't open till '82. I thought it was there by '78 or '79...but no.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:47pm Gary:

  8:50pm Poodlecannon:

What an awesome set. I loved the Vivabeat song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:50pm Gary:

Wait, Geffen really sued him for that stuff? That's ... wow.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:53pm Gary:

I cannot recommend this brilliant album by Gary Panter highly enough.

that's like suing your spouse because heshe got a tattoo.

Do we play the 7:00-long Fishbone song next set, or just assume everyone has heard it -- we've still got to get through 1985, 86 and 87!
Avatar 9:23pm coelacanth:

i just looked into hilary,& i guess it's an ep i have? (i'm not home-can't check) but i should give it another chance,from a different perspective now. the description looks interesting;though fairly serious.
i wasn't looking for that,in that,then.
Avatar 9:23pm hyde:

personally, I don't care if you skip Fishbone
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:24pm davex:

Hey alternate between what you think are hits and obscure. That would be interesting.
Avatar 9:25pm coelacanth:

i don't think i've heard that. i've never been intrigued by fishbone...but i'm still open.
Avatar 9:25pm northguineahills:

Gee, I saw fishbone at the 93 lolapalooza. That was a whilel back. (the first concert I went to by myself w/ non-local bands.

sukothai.com is a good starting point for mr stone. He posted some mp3s and whatnot
Avatar 9:27pm coelacanth:

if it's an lp you can play it at 45,so it's not 7 minutes.

Gotta run, thanks for the excellent tunes tonight Gary!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:28pm Gary:

Thanks, Jesse! Have a great night!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:29pm Gary:

I'm definitely not going to do another talk-over break; that'll gain us a few minutes, anyway
Avatar 9:31pm coelacanth:

i saw them at the first(?) further fest ('97?) & totally dug it. then my lady (then) gave me tapes of fishbone,and i never played them more than once or twice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:34pm Gary:

I think I have a compromise -- might play something of theirs from 87 at the end of the show
Avatar 9:47pm coelacanth:

wow. first heard this on wfmu,when the only shows i usually listened to were "punk" shows.
this was either Paul Cavenough or Pat Duncan.
