The whole Dukes LP is amazing. How does a band complete such an amazing "side project" whilst still making incredible albums with their "main" band? UNBELIEVABLE!
Avatar 3:07pm coelacanth:

greetings Scott and All
Avatar 3:09pm InBrkly:

Hmm gotta queue up more Dukes. I think I may like them better than XTC.

I used to listen to WFUV and then I spent some time with WBAI. Today, with disc jockeys like Scott Williams playing this kind of music, I am WFMU all the way!

"Boom In The Night" is one of my all-time favorite album names. The album itself is pretty darn good, too.
  3:13pm Sib Hashian Jr.:

XTC is no Squeeze, who is no Elvis Costello, who is no John Cougar, who is no Bob Seger, who is no Van Morrison, who is no Bob Dylan, who is no Steve Forbert.

Ooh, thanks for this Bush Tetras.

Good afternoon, humans and non-humans!
Avatar 3:31pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

i sense a theme, mit der BOOM-BOOM.

There's a great sequence in Jodorowsky's film FANDO Y LIS where they meet the insane shaman who does this fab rant:

WHEN YOU HEAR THE SOUND OF THE DRUM, IT WILL BE NIGHT.... BOOM! BOOM! BOOM!...BOOM!... etc (en español, of course... although "boom" is awesomely universal)

@Opinion/Andrew, I love how commenters during Stan's show pool knowledge and/or transcribe his back-announces to help each other figure out what he's playing.

Hey everybody! Pretty intense behind-the-scenes action in that 1st set, sorry for my late howdiedoos!

@Scott, what again was that sound exhibit in the west 20s that melted your brain? I failed to make a note of it. I want to go to there.

Is there a video with this? I'm looking at an error-message window in the middle of the playlist.

Yeah, that was it Parq. Dang.

Those maraca shakes were haunting at the end of that song.

Hey Parq, I put a video on top of the playlist. It's the BOOM

This an outstanding set of music and words. Thank you for the August haunting

Ah. Thanks, Scott. Sorry I have to miss on it. Great show, of course.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:20pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Therese mentioned the implosion on her show earlier today. She predicted some DJ would mention it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:24pm Scott Williams:

Therese is a smart lady, and I am a predictable man
Avatar 4:25pm coelacanth:

Parq, often pix & such don't show up here. if i right-click and select "view image" or something of the sort, i must "make security exception"- then when i go back to the playlist the image is there.
...'worth a try.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:31pm Parq:

Coel, nah, it's my strangely Orwellian work puter, which blocks almost all video from any source. I'll get along okay without it.
  4:32pm Hess Marketing Dept.:

Hess has durable plastic toy Hess tanker trucks that are perfect for holiday gift-giving. Many Hess locations have also coupled with Dunkin' Donuts so motorists can not only fill-up with gas, but can fill-up on donuts, as well!

Strider makes me think of the Nintendo game. Wonder if it's a reference.
Avatar 5:01pm Cecile:

I think it might also be a Dead reference.
Tell me more about this Strider 88.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:03pm Andrew Waterloo:

It does appear to be a Greatful Dead reference.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:21pm Ĩkє:

@Andrew, I vaguely recall Strider as a (very) difficult but beautiful action side-scroller in arcades. The Nintendo version was much different.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:26pm Carmichael:

This Strider 88 is not listed as one of the artists on Plastic Dance vol1 (as far as I can tell). There is a song called Strider 88 by C Average, full of Tolkien references (2 Towers, specifically).
  5:27pm Ari:

Really cool show, never heard any of this.
