"Dead Rat Orchestra presents a soundtrack to the film ‘Tyburnia: A Radical History Of 600 Years Of Public Execution’ by James Holcombe.
The film explores parallels between contemporary and historical notions of crime in relation to business and property, the spectacular nature of punishment and the use of the body as a site for political control."
  3:36pm Dean:

For extra credit, read yesterday's SCOTUS opinion in Mullenix v. Luna.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40pm Doug Schulkind:

Speaking of public executions, I came upon two facts when poking around for a theme for today's Give the Drummer Some.

(1) On this date in 1580 the English Army beheaded 600 Papal soldiers and civilians at Dún an Óir, Ireland.

(2) On this date in 1865, the United States hanged for the committing of war crimes, Major Henry Wirz, the superintendent of a prison camp in Andersonville, Georgia: en.wikipedia.org...

Blessedly, my GTDS this evening will not be wallowing in public execution lore.

Thanks Doug. That is interesting. Here's another interesting fact. The London residence of British ex-prime minster, mass murderer and war criminal Tony Blair is a few doors down from the site of the Tyburn gallows in Cavendish Square.

I've heard of them Brian. Wow, I've also just been reading about the Arrest Blair Campaign: www.arrestblair.org.
  4:02pm Dean:

Shoot, missed the hoqueting tune. Lots of fun early hockets, and some alter ones, too.
  4:03pm Dean:

Avatar 4:08pm Peter Nelson:

I grabbed this from youtube. Sounds too slow. Anyone know this version?
  4:08pm Dean:

This song might sound better if performed by, say, Iris DeMent. Or not.
Avatar 4:09pm Peter Nelson:

On a sound system this bass is body-shaking. I know this from personal experience.
  4:13pm Dean:

My vote's for the original. Unless the bass I'm missing is really that good. (I recall a show in a small venue by Augustus Pablo. That was body-shaking bass.)
Avatar 4:15pm Peter Nelson:

@ Dean.Surely not????? It's awful!
  4:18pm Dean:

The reggae version felt half-hearted. (Again, maybe the bass is the kicker.) I could hear DeMent delivering the original more or less faithfully. Maybe, too, the relative brevity of the original was to its credit.
  4:18pm Dean:

And stop calling me Shirley.

Hurrah for differing tastes!

Okay, I am an unapologetic sucker for "Dark Side", so enjoying this quite a bit.
  5:12pm Dean:

A sucker here, too, for DSOTM, albeit an apologetic one. But, yeah, this is happening. Can't wait to hear the "Great Gig" section.
Avatar 5:13pm Peter Nelson:

Hi Parq. Me too. And 'Wish You Were Here', actually. Headphones under the bed clothes as a youngster.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:15pm Parq:

I'm in a car with my kid, with my iPod on shuffle. "Money" comes up.

Kid: Dad, could you turn that down a little?

Me: No. Sorry.
Avatar 5:16pm Peter Nelson:

I've got a chip version of this too, which is pretty amazing. The dub version, however,...'Dub Side Of The Moon...could be better.

@Parq. Turn it up!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:17pm Doug Schulkind:

Tough love, Parq.
  5:18pm Dean:

My response to my kids would be more along the lines of, "Yes, I could. But I won't."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:20pm listener james from westwood:

Heh, STILL listening and glad I am! I blow hot and cold on mixes of the classics but this one is very artfully done. The Floyd DNA is still quite vibrant.
Avatar 5:21pm Peter Nelson:

Subtle, isn't it. Mostly intact...just punched and looped here and there. Remixed, rather than covered.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:22pm Parq:

Dean, no, that misses the key point. When you're about to listen to the greatest guitar solo in all of radio-saturated classic rock, you just *can't* turn it down.
Avatar 5:25pm Peter Nelson:

Top of the album charts for years...millions of copies sold....we've all heard it over and over and over again...but ain't it wonderful?
  5:26pm Dean:

When you put it that way, Parq, I see your point. Funny: I'd never thought of that particular guitar solo as a GUITAR SOLO! I've always dug the ensemble, and its acceleration toward frenzy. The guitar part has always been one equal part. But, dang, it IS a guitar solo!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:27pm Doug Schulkind:

Acceleration Toward Frenzy. Another great radio show name.
Avatar 5:28pm Peter Nelson:

YOU'RE A BUNCH OF OLD HIPPIES. More comments about this than any other bit of the show toinght.
  5:31pm Dean:

Well, we did commence the comments (rhyme?) riffing on weed, didn't we?
Avatar 5:32pm Peter Nelson:

We did...we did. Me too...old hippie...fair cop.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:36pm Parq:

Weed? Funny, PN's show always makes me think it's late night in a dark lounge with black lacquer fixtures and neon highlights, and a flawless rye Manhattan sitting on the bar in an exotic glass.
Avatar 5:37pm Peter Nelson:

Oh Parq, that's beautiful. Perfect.
Avatar 5:39pm Peter Nelson:

If it wasn't for the time difference I'd be doing a late night show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:40pm listener james from westwood:

There's a lot of what the US radio market calls "classic rock" that no longer resonates for me, from overexposure, but this album isn't in that group. Always in for a spin. I'm a bit burnt out on "The Wall," though.
Avatar 5:40pm Peter Nelson:

So, will you all be listening to the original later tonight?
Avatar 5:42pm Peter Nelson:

This astonishing piano concerto was composed between 1929 and 1931, and was first performed by Marguerite Long, with Ravel conducting the Orchestre Lamoureux, in January 1932.
You might notice references to Gershwin in the 1st movement, and you would be right. Ravel toured the US in 1928 and said "The most captivating part of jazz is its rich and diverting rhythm. ...Jazz is a very rich and vital source of inspiration for modern composers and I am astonished that so few Americans are influenced by it." Ravel said that the initial theme came to him on a train journey in England.
This performance of music by a French composer, with English and American influences, is played by a Chinese pianist with a Japanese conductor and a German orchestra.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:43pm Doug Schulkind:

If Jesse Kaminsky plays it, yes :-)
  5:43pm Dean:

Probably not, but maybe "Meddle." My LP of DSOTM is a Mobile Fidelity remaster in a nice rigid sleeve. With kids to get to bed, I don't want to be fumbling with the vinyl.

I don't know this recording of the Ravel, but the piece is just glorious.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:44pm listener james from westwood:

I'm with Doug; Jesse until bedtime!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:45pm Charlie:

Hello Peter, all. Sorry I missed the DRO, looking forward to the archive. Tuned in just in time for Ravel! Big fan of Maurice.
Avatar 5:47pm Peter Nelson:

Dean, you're musical knowledge is astonishing.
Yes, this version is quite something. I've got about 4 different recordings...listened to more...and Li is my favourite. So precise, which is appropriate for a composer nicknamed 'the Swiss watchmaker of music' by Stravinsky.
Avatar 5:47pm Peter Nelson:

Hello Charlie.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:48pm Charlie:

I like pianists who play romantic and impressionist music precisely. The music already has so much eomtional expansiveness built into it.
Avatar 5:49pm Peter Nelson:

Turn up the volume for this movement.
Avatar 5:52pm Peter Nelson:

It took Ravel 2 years to write this masterpiece, and all most people know is that bloody 'Bolero'.
Avatar 5:53pm northguineahills:

Loving the Ravel!
Avatar 5:53pm Peter Nelson:

Hi ngh.
  5:54pm Dean:

Thanks, Peter, but really, my musical knowledge is patchy. I add to it daily thanks to WFMU, though. I will look for this recording.

"Precision" is certainly an expected, perhaps characteristic, quality in good French classical music. I adore Tharaud, but I don't think he has recorded this. But I don't mind overstatement and pseudo-romantic gushing from time to time, either. Setting my gain to onze.

There's another radio show name, Doug: Bloody Bolero.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:54pm Doug Schulkind:

Because there is just so much eomtion one can take, eh Charlie?!

I played the mental-health challenging snare drum part for Bolero with my high school orchestra. Still not fully healed, 35+ years later.
