Bling blong sounds to start off the week!
Avatar 3:12pm Cecile:

yes! Ike tweeted it to all, but I was on my way to Neurosis, so could not partake of the live show.
Avatar 3:12pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

holy large poop, Ken FHP. That's fantastic. I'll get with archives, post-SW...
Avatar 3:13pm Cecile:

He just needs to apply for a show!
Avatar 3:17pm Cecile:

Pi, BTW Neurosis were incredible.
Avatar 3:20pm Cheri Pi:

that's what I was hoping to hear C$, I'm stoking my Neurosis fires until tomorrow

I just ditched Scott to play some, actually. Sorry.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:22pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Jury duty, Ike? Put some podcasts on your phone. The court house may block WFMU streaming, I've heard.

today's show pairs great with Artichokes pizza
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27pm Ike:

Nah, you misunderstand my dumb joke, @KFHP. Never mind, it's dumb.
Avatar 3:27pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

oh crap, Scott, you're taking me back to high-school with this Synergy record. I played the SCHNEEZZLE out of this LP, a million years ago.
Avatar 3:28pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

this track in particular stands out in the memory-brain.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28pm maestroso:

I've got the clear vinyl version somewhere.
Avatar 3:29pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

yep, still got mine. The cover photography was done by Sleazy Christopherson, if memory serves.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:29pm Scott Williams:

reminds me of that guy who did the soundtrack to Cafe Flesh - Mitch Froom
  3:31pm bloopy:

howdy scott
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:31pm Ike:

The same Mitch Froom who produced Suzanne Vega's 99.9F°?
Avatar 3:32pm Cecile:

and ruined any number of roots-rock albums?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:33pm Bas NL:

Hiya Scott! Nice sounds!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:33pm Scott Williams:

yeah, he put his hands all over a lotta stuff. but that soundtrack is still great. Howdy Bloopy!
Avatar 3:34pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

on second thought, i was on that synergy kick in early junior-high. Good grief.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:35pm SeanG:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:35pm Scott Williams:

why, you precocious mofo, Uncle Revvy! messed you up good, as XRay Burns would say
Avatar 3:36pm Cheri Pi:

It's good to get messed up young.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:36pm Scott Williams:

here's to that CP
Avatar 3:37pm Cecile:

I remember Cords from my first couple years of college (dates self badly)
Avatar 3:38pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

re: I had help. So maybe that's cheating. It was a quick hop from Synergy to Schulze to Throbbing Gristle. Then the floor fell away and it all went gloriously black...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38pm common:

who's messed up?
Avatar 3:39pm Cecile:

and once it goes gloriously black...
Avatar 3:40pm Cheri Pi:

*burp* and now for that samosa-coma I've been dreaming about all summer. Also, dipped my proboscis into some grade A daal.
  3:43pm Dean:

I'd forgotten that Larry Fast played with Nektar.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44pm maestroso:

Also with Peter Gabriel, I think.
Avatar 3:45pm Cheri Pi:

Avatar 3:47pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Seems like there was a moment there of much weird collab t'ween Fast, Gabriel, & Kate Bush (games without frontiers, etc)
Avatar 3:48pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Speaking of "messed up," that duck has HAD IT, man.......
  3:49pm Dean:

Definitely with Gabriel. I remember well the tours. But Nektar kinda snuck in there, too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:49pm Stanley:

This is my kind of shit!
Avatar 3:51pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Fat Freddy's Scat!
  3:55pm Pidge:

Gabriel created all the song titles for the songs on Synergy's "Cords" LP. The music was initially used as music on the PA System prior to Gabriel's concerts.
  3:56pm Pidge:

the music was used as music! ha! re-dun-dunce

  4:10pm Skulnick:

Just hanging out in a booth at Beef O'Brady's in Paducah, digging you, man. Headphones on, completely gone.
Avatar 4:11pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Between the Synergy & Kuruki tracks, the vibe got so into my junior high-school head I was convinced we'd get to the s/t John Foxx album (reissued as 'metamatic' but my vinyl copy seemed like no title) ...
  4:12pm St. Elmo:

Or, John Parr!

Yay, Lila (Lyla ?). Hope you're doing well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:28pm Scott Williams:

Lila's a bit bored by the radio today, but if she comes back, I'll ask her your question CP, and pass along all of your greets

Nothing to be ashamed about, a collection of Mel Torme records.
  4:46pm Mark R.:

Mel Torme's actually a guilty pleasure of mine. Shhhh.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:50pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Mel's on the real Jazz side of Lounge - don't see a problem...I do favor Sierra Nevada. Yo Cali.

@CP - is this what you were asking for at 4:21? www.wfmu.org...

Gold Bond Medicated Powder really helps on hot summer days like these. Available at your neighborhood CVS and Duane Read stores. Why suffer? get the quick relief you crave, now!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:09pm Carmichael:

Aah, Cilla. One of my early crushes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:12pm Ike:

I prefer Snake Brand Prickly Heat Lavender Powder.
  5:16pm GPMB Mktg. 463:

Ike, we aim to win you over. See the Mahwah Republican-Herald today for money saving coupons on Gold Bond Powders with soothing Kauai aloes - and NEW Gold Bond Fast Action Mint. It's a fun, fresh kind of feeling!

@GPMB Mktg. 463 - Oh my GOD, IT'S YOU!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:19pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...if it comes to it, I may bathe w/ a few added drops of Thai Yellow Oil, which has camphor, thus a somewhat uncanny kind of cooling effect...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:23pm Carmichael:

Scott, is this some Slavic way of saying Work Until Friday?
Avatar 5:30pm Jeff:

...and of course, "Nearer My God to Thee" is the song featured on the infamous CNN "doomsday tape".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:34pm Īke:

Hmm, still better than everybody's least favorite Mila Kunis fan.
  Swag For Life Member 5:38pm Ralphine:

My sister got me the Subotnick album for Christmas when I was eight years old. She knew I liked Switched On Bach and this was the only other electronic music album she could find.
