Live performance by Goddess
Experimental folk ensemble Goddess writes, as they describe it, "...songs about the dark places in our heads and pasts, influenced by madrigals, Bartok, nursery rhymes, Amish culture, Sandy Denny, the Polanski movie Fearless Vampire Killers, shamanic trance music, a deer organ we found in the woods, church hymns, showtunes and Krautrock." On their latest album, "Paradise," founders Andy, Tamalyn and Fran perform on their usual blend of unconventional instruments, which include a homemade horsehair fiddle, toystore guitar and keyboard, dulcimer and tree branch. Goddess brought their darkly beautiful music to the WFMU studios.

@JakeGould - I will 100% agree that early September weather is as gorgeous as it gets. I'll always remember what a beautiful day, weatherwise, 9/11 was.
I don't know what the hell that was last week, but I'm glad its over.

Revolution Rabbit Nov 63:

...they use Belladonna to dilate your pupils when you go the eye doctor...course it literally means 'lovely lady' - & the pupil dilation was considered attractive in Medieval times...
Revolution Rabbit Nov 63:

...what was the other 'evil' thing?


Oh there is evil in the world, my ex-boyfriend is living proof of that
Revolution Rabbit Nov 63:

- oh - jimson weed. Evil alright.

Avatar 10:27pm

yes! that description of Belladonna is in at least one of my herb books!
trouble is, i think it also messed up your vision!
so sure, these ladies were all BEAUTIFUL with their misty, water-y eyes! but apparently practically blind as a side-effect!

speaking of vinyl - I got that Moody Blues record y'all recommended a couple weeks ago. Haggled him from $8 to $5.

ah! The Hook Man story i heard (waaaaay back in 1970s high school times)
concerned a spirit who wandered around Crematory Hill in Cranbury, NJ

Governor Chris Christie is the Green Hook Man

Go DJ Sean!!

Hey there Irene!
Avatar 11:02pm

Sean! Digging the set so far. I didn't know where the name Hatfield and the North came from until I saw the highway sign in one of the last panels of Alan Moore's "V For Vendetta". Funny where these things come from sometime.
Avatar 11:04pm

I had a friend in Mass'chu who dug the band big time. He used to pronounce it "Hatfield and the Noth", of course.

Nice Kate Bush!

yeah, nice choice. haven't heard this version before
Avatar 11:14pm

Wow. Dramatic

Folks, this duet, who did this originally?

@Sean: Peter Gabriel says the magical playlist.
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 11:20pm
Sean in Bristol UK:

It was Roy Harper, we looked it up, Irene remembered straight away, bless her!

Peter Gabriel's SECURITY is a masterpiece .
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:36pm
Irene Trudel:

Agreed, Tommy! That's one of my Favorite Peter Gabriel Albums ever.

Very underrated . People really aren't aware of it. Hasn't got the credit it deserves

Great show tonight. And now I have to think about the green hook creep.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:43pm
Irene Trudel:

Oh, and hello everybody. It's been a busy night, with a rather large band setup. Thanks to Sean for doing so much of the track listing tonight (and planning these last two sets.)

@Irene: No problem!

KATE BUSH! (and Peter the Angel Gabriel)
Avatar 11:01am
Van in DC:

Two quick notes on the "Another Day" and Roy Harper talk / references:

1. There is also an amazingly beautiful & haunting version of "Another Day" out there that was done by This Mortal Coil, featuring the incredible Liz Fraser of Cocteau Twins fame, on their outstanding 1984 LP "It'll End In Tears".

2. Roy Harper not only first wrote & did "Another Day" in which we heard the KaTe & Peter cover here on this show from KaTe's incredible BBC live Christmas show, but KaTe & Roy Harper have a wonderful little duet of their OWN out there called, simply, "You".

Awesomeness all around, and well done Sean & Irene!
