Sounds ripped from cassettes & CDs found in immigrant-run mom & pop stores. Deconstructed icons. Field recordings. Sonic mayhem from the far corners of the internet.

yep - and any rat group is worth hearing

After Bedstars we're going to hear one of the first Soviet punk bands (formed in 1982), but who only played their first live show in Russia together last year.

...it's Davids all the way down...
This DoS is great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:27pm Gary:

RevRab! I'll be playing all Russian punk & post-punk next week ... discovered this band doing research for that show
  7:45pm DJ Papa Gentle:

Sahel Sounds had a nice run this year. Dug the new Mdou Moctar too. Great cover art!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:45pm Gary:

DJ PG! Nice to see you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:45pm Gary:

Are you gonna do a Best Of tonight as well?
  7:47pm DJ Papa Gentle:

It was either that or tribute to Om Kalthoum, given it's her birthday. So I'm going with the latter, with a deep bow.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:49pm Gary:

Ahhh, nice -- I'll tune in. But -- you know that Virginia Danielson has evidence (or something approaching evidence, something evidence-y) that her birthday was May 4, 1904
  7:50pm David:

That Russian cassette swapping thing is very interesting. In the mid '80s my ex-wife exchanged homemade cassettes with a girl in what was then Soviet Estonia. She taped some really cool Estonian bands. She learned a lot from listening to Finnish radio, actually introduced me to Shonen Knife.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:51pm Gary:

Whoa, that's amazing, David. How great would it be to hear those Estonian tapes now?
  7:51pm DJ Papa Gentle:

She was never born, she just lives perpetually in all directions!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:00pm Gary:

Y'all can catch DJ Papa Gentle tonight at 11 PM ET (8 PM PT) on KXLU: www.kxlu.com ... not archived, so if you want to hear the Oum Kalthoum show, tune in!
Avatar 8:00pm ndbob:

excellent show Gary - time to go
happy new year everyone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:01pm Gary:

Happy New Year, Bob!
  8:02pm DJ Papa Gentle:

This Kuwaiti cut rocks.
  8:02pm David:

Forgive slow replies.. am listening to two African shows simultaneously with "Bodega Pop."
Yeah, I assume the ex took those old cassettes to Arizona when she moved out. I recorded a ton of Indian classical music from local college radio in the '80s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:05pm Gary:

I lost all my tapes I'm sad to admit. I had great stuff. That said, I just picked up some incredible Algerian or Moroccan tapes from Steinway Street while hanging out with Peter "Monrakplengthai" Doolan a few weeks ago -- they're amazing enough that I'm going to burn them and either share on the blog or play here
  8:18pm David:

Would love to go to New York City just once to check the ethnic record shops. Rarely buy music these days.. did just order the new ℃-ute album. I collect exclusively on this Japanese girl group. Their latest stuff very good.

Wow, こちらこそよろしく, David san! Would be happy to have you tuned in, although there is almost 0% Japanese cutesy girls-pop on my show. haha!
  8:46pm David:

That's fine, ma'am. I love the old stuff. First listened to Yumi Matsutoya, Mariya Takeuchi, Shizuoka Kudo back in the late '80s. I'd love to see Seiko Matsuda on tomorrow's 紅白.
  8:48pm David:

Shizuka! I have about ten
of her records
Avatar 8:55pm Mayuko:

@David You're hardcore! I've never watched 紅白 my entire life, that's probably why I didn't fit in there and had to leave my motherland, haha. I've played Mariya's husband's band from the 70's, but that's how far I can get! I should play Seiko sometime in future though, she's got great songs.
  9:07pm David:

Tんank you ma'am..
Nice show, Mr. Gary. Such variety.
I'll stop talking now. Nice world

Yaye, I tune in w/ time to spare!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:22pm Ike:

Ha ha! There's something you don't hear on the Jersey City-based shows. Ted Leonard the labradoodle doesn't try to shut the shows down when he goes to say hi to the DJs.
Avatar 🇰🇷 Swag For Life Member 9:23pm Doug Schulkind:

Back home in Pittsburgh. Still some Gary left. Yay!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:25pm Gary:

Ike! NGH! Doug!
Avatar 9:26pm Mayuko:

Yah like you said (if I heard you correctly - I'm cleaning my room) that My Little Airport song could be "the *right* age to marry", just assuming from the east Asian culture in general. In Japan at least that word comes with this feeling of pressure from the society, as if there's such thing as "right age" that applies every single person.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:28pm Gary:

I seem to recall something about a "Christmas Cake" and being 24?
Avatar 9:30pm hyde:

i think the producer set everything to "harsh" for this one (sounds good)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:31pm Gary:

That whole album ("Karen") is thrill-packed, Hyde!
Avatar 9:37pm Mayuko:

@Gary haha, yah exactly! although seems like the limit of woman's "marketing value" has been pushed up to probably 27, 8 yr old in the recent couple of years. But still if you're female and not married in your 30's then you're a "loser". But maybe in China/Hong Kong this social pressure applies to men too, must be a bit different from Japanese.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:39pm northguineahills:

Haven't heard Clamor Inexorable, but most of my wife's friends are in Monterrey, Mexico City, Yucatan, or Tijuana. Most probably no longer hit hardcore shows any more. (well, I still hit an occasional hardcore show at least once a year over here.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:45pm northguineahills:

The majority of my female friends got married in their mid to late 30s. My wife was 32 (after we'd been together for 7 years) and I had a 6.5 year lead on this race around curious bright orb in the sky.
Avatar 9:51pm Mayuko:

@northguineahills yah seriously I don't see why that is such a big deal. Usually things in Japan follow the US with like 10~20 years delay, so probably that will be the norm there too.

(love this dreamy Nimbes btw!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:52pm Gary:

All of the French stuff in this last set (with maybe one exception?) comes to us via the amazing La Souterraine, my new favorite label: souterraine.biz
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:55pm Gary:

Mayuko, you can get the whole Nimbes album free here: souterraine.biz...
Avatar 9:57pm Mayuko:

wow, that's like late christmas present (and still valuable.) got em now! Thanks Gary!

Thanks & happy new year, Gary! I'm so so happy that I got to know your show and all on the Drummer stream this year! Looking forward to 2016.
