What a great story about the vengeful hour-long Sister Ray.
  5:43pm Mike Sin:

Very interesting to hear Doug's take on why so many audience members made private recordings of the live shows. I would always have figured it it was due to the nature of their fans. There seemed to be no middle ground -- Either one was completely captivated by the band or totally indifferent. They didn't have a lot of fans in their time, but the few they had seemed so dedicated to and enthralled by the band.
  5:45pm ?:

enjoy hearing Doug Yule … but it's pretty clear that person-to-person interviews are best.
Avatar 5:46pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

@Mike Sin: Spot on observation as usual. You can tell from a lot of the live recordings that while the band is so revered today that during the time of these gigs a lot of people treated them as background music.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:49pm Linda Lee:

that's 2 invites to do a longer interview, Todd :-)
Avatar 5:49pm totallybiased:

thank you.
Avatar 5:50pm totallybiased:

I wonder how VU actually felt about Paul Morrissey?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:51pm Linda Lee:

honestly,the music says all that really needs saying. as it should be.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:53pm efd:

That was cool, Todd, thanks for making the extra effort to figure out a way to bring Doug's comments to WFMU listeners even after he declined to be interviewed initially.
Avatar 5:55pm Hoboken Jack:

Nice interview and kudos to your interviewer by proxy. The MOJO article (also by David Fricke) is definitely worth a read.
Avatar 5:56pm totallybiased:

thanks T-o-P
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:57pm melinda:

Yes, thanks for arranging that, Todd. The home setting adds an interesting quality to the proxy interview.
  6:02pm V Priceless:
