Favoriting Explorers Room with Flash Strap: Playlist from March 26, 2015 Favoriting

Flash Strap's avatar View Flash Strap's profile Favoriting

This is where all of culture and all of time are collapsed into one seductive portal and viewed through the panoramic lens of the exotic. Come and embark on an armchair-travel virtual-voyage to the heart of timeless darkness and beyond; embrace the numinous monolith of the exotic immensity. Let us find that place where hybridization meets its destiny as pure fantasy. Let us become observers observing those others who are ourselves. You wear your mask and I'll wear mine.

Well, gentlemen, Explorers Room is happy to have you. Let us draw our chairs closer to each other, and speak frankly as one may do only in a small group. I shall break out the finer spirits which I ordinarily would not wish to share in a larger soiree.

Ah, let's see: I have the finest aged sasparilla. I suppose that will have to do. I trust you're less of a Mug man?

Thanks for tuning in Bob, see you on the archival plains.

yellowbird:

Wow, those really were exquisite liner notes...
  8:09pm
yellowbird:

Were these types of exotic suite pieces ever performed outside of the studio?
Avatar 8:10pm
Flash Strap:

I agree, there's a lot going on there. Much more straightforward-informative than your usual exotica notes, more in the vein of a jazz record. Though it certainly straddles the two worlds.
Avatar 8:11pm
Flash Strap:

Oh, I don't know about this one. Certainly Prado performed quite often, but this might not have been in his smaller group's repertoire.
  8:16pm
yellowbird:

I thought they seemed rather artistically alluring but also educational...like letting the reader in on some secret ways to enjoy the music to its fullest extent.
Avatar 8:20pm
Flash Strap:

Yeah, exactly. This was definitely a period where a little scholarly (or wholly faux-scholarly) explanation was a welcomed part of music, and it makes for an interesting dimension, a useful primary-source text by which to analyze the work. Though sometimes the bullshit is dense enough it's little more than historical hilarity.
Avatar 8:22pm
Flash Strap:

This may go without saying for any of you out there, but it may be worth pointing out: Prado's signature "UGH!" is actually a very forceful expectoration of the word "Dilo!"
Avatar 8:24pm
Flash Strap:

This part almost sounds like Dr. John's Gris Gris

I have a copy of that De Luca record, too. With a half-removed price tag, too.

yellowbird:

Well gosh, that's so interesting; what does "dilo!" mean?
Avatar 8:41pm
Flash Strap:

Yeah, I was blown away by that Satoh too, sort of shocked I'd never really listened to it before.

Good evening, Evan and discerning listeners.

That's awesome, Doug. I have three, actually, the result of always seeing it and picking it up thinking, it's so rare, despite all evidence to the contrary. Good record though.

Well, I think I'l be a little long tonight, so there is that consolation.

I have purchased records I already own (and downloaded records I have already downloaded) too many times to count. And not for any reason other than my Swiss-cheese brain.
Avatar 8:46pm
doca:

I missed a lot of the fun-athon shows, including Flash Strap's. I have a lot of archive digging to do.
Avatar 8:47pm
glenn:

lots of cheese talk on the comment boards tonight.

Flash Strap:

Doca, I'm conflicted. I miss the sloth, like the space hippie

GIVE THE DRUMMER RADIO PROGRAMMING ALERT...
There will be no Give the Drummer Some show at 9am (ET) tomorrow morning on the stream. Jeff Golick and his fine show, The Magic Hour, will be filling in. Uncle Michael's Hinky Dinky Time will splash across the streamwaves at noon (ET) as usual.

Hi Flash & everyone! Wow, a lot of us late to the party tonight. Yay archives!

@Doug - Why I have THREE Deviants Ptoof! lps is beyond me. All purchased & paid for.

On the other hand, I have, oh maybe 8 versions of Raw Power on purpose.

doca:

In time I'll change to a tribble, which is the combination of a sloth with a space hippie and everything will be fine, guaranteed

Hope things are not too rough in your world Doug. I know we'll all miss you in our mornings tomorrow, Golick or no Golick

Any more muensterous puns?
Avatar 8:54pm
doca:

@Flash: you should do a show of space exotica, if you haven't already. Lots of tribbles could go in it.

Planning on it!

Havarti and prosciutto on a plain bagel with stone ground mustard, heated. Trust me.

Why, Uncle Michael, am I not surprised that you would endorse heated mustard?!

One day, Doug. One day we will go all night: I will play Les Batxer's Quiet Village slowed down so much that it takes 12 hours
Avatar 9:04pm
hyde:

@Flash ha, that sounds awesome.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:05pm
Uncle Michael:

I suggest heating the entire sandwich, not just the mustard.
Avatar 9:06pm
Holly in NC:

@Doca, no, I am in the midst of mainly caring for very old and /or very ill animals, so more tears than laughter. Need some puppies and kittens in my life!

But, it is rewarding to carry a 100+ lb German Shepherd around via a really cool back leg harness system so he can do his business in a dignified fashion, without said harness system he'd have needed to be put down already (Gunny has neurological issues as well as dysplasia so he's in NO pain, I hasten to add)
Avatar 9:09pm
Flash Strap:

Sounds like saintly deeds to be sure, Holly
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:11pm
Doug Schulkind:

Oh Uncle Michael, you're among friends. If you can't share your obsession with heated mustard with us, who can you share it with?!
Avatar 9:11pm
doca:

I agree with Flash, @Holly
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:12pm
Doug Schulkind:

I agree with doca, Holly.
Avatar 9:14pm
Holly in NC:

@Flash - Not at all. Gunny is a special, special guy. I adore him. He is lucky to have kind, exceptionally intelligent and wealthy human parents with access to many resources who will do everything they can to keep him in good physical and mental shape for as long as possible. And then they will let him go. Which will be sooner rather than later and we all be sobbing balls.

It IS pretty great. It's really grown on me. The sort of audio-collage I can really get down with, and super-weird
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:31pm

Luna has ridiculously good bladder control. She waits until we're up and around before giving us a hint. (Scintillating conversation, I realize. We should go back to cheese talk.)
