Ooh, Total isn't this?

failure is just success that's gone pear-shaped.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:15pm JtotheK:

when I eat Total the sounds come across as much more brown than yellow. Hi everyone.
Avatar 3:16pm V Priceless:

Hey Fabio - digging the sounds!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:17pm Mike East:

yeah, man. outta sight!
Avatar 3:19pm Cecile:

the touch, the feel of failure. The fabric of our lives!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:20pm Michael 98145:

it is the end . of the beginning . of the beginning .
Avatar 3:23pm Chris from DC:

Failure. It's what's for dinner.
Avatar 3:29pm V Priceless:

speaking of "it's what's for dinner", this Saturday would have been the 99th bday of Robert Mitchum, for anyone keeping track....the original "poet with an ax".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:31pm foofs:

V, if you're not familiar with Julian Cope's song 'Robert Mitchum', it's a sweet little treat.
Avatar 3:32pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

have had NIGHT OF THE HUNTER on the playlist @ home for ages. Might have to finally do it..
Avatar 3:37pm V Priceless:

@ foofs - will explore - thanks for the tip; Hugh Cornwell does a trib too, called "The Big Sleep".
@Rev - if you've never seen it, whoa...maybe my fave film ever.
Avatar 3:38pm Wild Neil:

PEACE all. Fabio and Fabians et al.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41pm common:

night of the hunter is one of my favorite films ever. mitchum is the devil in that one. so good.
Avatar 3:42pm Wild Neil:

@common "Chiiiiiiildren....chiiiiiillldren..."
  3:42pm Zollo:

Wonder if they still make Total cereal? I know I could Google it, but I'm awfully busy. The life of a drawbridge oiler is never calm.
  3:43pm Dean:

D:O intro music right here.
Avatar 3:44pm Cecile:

I need this like right now.
Avatar 3:45pm Cecile:

who is playing bass?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:47pm common:

yes, wild neil!
Avatar 3:47pm Wild Neil:

Anyone ever find an AWESOME record at a thrift store?
  3:48pm Dean:

Malachi Favors
Avatar 3:48pm Wild Neil:

This Free Jazz is in-sane like Crazy Eddie.
Avatar 3:50pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

@Neil: I did find a pristine copy of the Beefheart Yellow Brick Road/Abba Zaba 7" (buddha green label) at a thrift-store down here (DC)... 30ish years ago. Never a better score before or since.
  3:53pm Fredericks:

Man, Roscoe Mitchell does a convincing Ornette Coleman.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:57pm JtotheK:

re: Night of the Hunter - great film, haven't watched it in a very long time. Also, Cape Fear! (The original and his cameo in the remake.)
Avatar 3:59pm Wild Neil:

@Rev-I run hot and cold on the Captain, but that is an AWESOME find to be sure! I bet you paid two bucks for it too....
I found a Neil Young bootleg in an Episcopal Thrift Store with really shitty hours in an obscure location. THOSE thrift stores are really high on the ignorance index.
Avatar 4:04pm V Priceless:

@ JtotheK: agreed 'Cape Fear' is brilliant, and it was cool of Scorsese to cast both Mitch and Peck in the remake...
Avatar 4:04pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

It would have been about 0.50, that single... the store is long gone (was under the tracks at the Rhode Island Ave metro stop). .. I still have a large collection of wacky outsider religious records scored from thrift-stores. Exorcisms, rock-and-roll-is-satan, etc... Found a copy of that "FLIGHT F-I-N-A-L" classic at another thrift store...
Avatar 4:07pm Cecile:

I found the Dust album Hard Attack and Tim Buckley's Blue Afternoon for fifty cents each in Marquette, MI.
Avatar 4:07pm Chris from DC:

Wow, final flight, nice
Avatar 4:07pm Cecile:

that was in an actual record store with a used section.
Avatar 4:10pm Chris from DC:

I got that New Sounds comp with Steve Reich's "Come Out" for $2. Probably the best score I can think of.
Avatar 4:10pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

By a longshot, the greatest LP find at a thrift shop was this beauty. Best $1 ever spent, ever: www.discogs.com...
Avatar 4:11pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

So much sampling was done from that.
  4:13pm Zollo:

So flatly ignored. Hurt.
  4:14pm Fredericks:

Pharoah can pull out the John Coltrane as needed, as well. Great set Fabio.
  4:14pm Tim in VT:

Sounds a bit like the harpy space music in the big gunbattle in DeNiro's taxi driver
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:14pm JtotheK:

@Zollo: yes, Total cereal still exists. Not sure where it is in terms of overall cereal popularity.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:15pm JtotheK:

Taxi Driver OST (Hermann) is pretty good, haven't listened to that LP in a while.
  4:23pm Rob:

The Bruce Connor show is off the hook! You should play 'Breakaway' by Toni Basel.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:25pm Goatpuncher:

Re: no computerized playlist, well, this is computerized and this is a playlist. But it's not run or chosen by an algorithm, which I'm sure is what you mean, Fabs. It's not Skynet radio. Yeah, that's right, I just implied that Pandora wants to kill all humans! You heard it here first.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:30pm JtotheK:

the Toni Basil 'Breakaway' 45 (original pressing) appears to still go for 300+. i'd like to find it in a $1 bin someday.
  4:35pm Fredericks:

Japanese Krautrock!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:39pm Mike East:

I've been going to more and more parties and BBQ's that use Pandora to choose their music...and usually with ads. This annoys me greatly, though I try to be polite. Maybe I should start telling them about the dangers of bringing AI into your home so I'll just sound paranoid instead of sounding like a snob.
Avatar 4:40pm Cecile:

I'd rather Pandora than the dumbos at Clear Channel.
Avatar 4:42pm Wild Neil:

Toni Basil was HOT.
Pandora is on my phone. I think WFMU is BETTER because it finds more obscure stuff....but Pandora is pretty good at finidng it too...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:42pm Mike East:

@Cecile - my one sister has been playing clearchannel stations at her BBQ's this summer. I find it baffling...but again...I try to be polite. But, come on! I'd rather be listening to one of her Matthew Sweet CD's than goddamn cars4kidz ads!
  4:44pm bunny nuggets:

rock and roll
  4:45pm A.T.F.:

Fusion?
  4:46pm Ted:

Jan Hammeresque
Avatar 4:47pm geezerette:

@JtotheK:
@Wild Neil:
You guys have to see Bruce Conners film, "Breakaway".
It's a just Toni Basil dancing to the song & she will haunt your dreams, in a good way.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:53pm JtotheK:

i have not...will check it out. thanks!
  4:54pm Fredericks:

Ted, I thought it sounded like Hammer stole some Can tapes and over-dubbed himself.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:56pm Michael 98145:

@geezerette, absolutely! www.youtube.com...
Avatar 4:56pm Chris from DC:

Ah, Total and Skullflower, it's a good afternoon.
  4:58pm A.T.F.:

22 years ago fab time to move on....new tunes abound...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:59pm common:

Avatar 5:06pm geezerette:

@Michael 98145: If you can travel down to SF for the Connors exhibit at SFMoMA,starts in Oct., you'll see the entire unobstructed film, life size probably. Thanks for sharing youtube!
All his other work is equally srong but you already know that. :D

Have there even been tapes released with the vocals a little lower in the mix?
  5:11pm A.T.F.:

Sean doing well...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:13pm Michael 98145:

Would love to see that Conner exhibition!

About the elevator: Ascenseur pour l'échafaud
by Noël Calef
  5:16pm Fredericks:

That first skip was beautiful. Wished it had run for a while. Try some Tite-Bond II, Fabio. Clean it right up.
  5:22pm Marcel M:

Yoyo
  5:23pm Marcel M:

Skullflower referencing Derek and Clive. Nice.
  5:24pm A.T.F.:

Avatar 5:35pm geezerette:

Avatar 5:38pm TDK60:

I have nothing to say, for now.
  5:43pm Fredericks:

Discwasher: yes. Static gun: no.
  5:44pm Fredericks:

What head-cleaner do you use, TDK?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:47pm Ken From Hyde Park:

The dudes in the college dorms had the cleaning kits and static guns.
Avatar 5:49pm TDK60:

I have a box of assorted head cleaners, forget the brands. Some are dry, others use alcohol.
  5:51pm A.T.F.:

Perker derailed Waters' Hollywood rise. He just laughs about it.
  5:54pm A.T.F.:

Still have gallon of 99....vet supply
  5:55pm Fredericks:

Vet supply! Oh, I'm on it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:56pm Michael 98145:

Melanie married Antonio Banderas in 1996.
