Birthday Talisker was acquired, as one must for such an occasion. Ahoy, troops.

Got it, R.P., thanks

That's a fun cover

"they say the wind made them crazy" -- a reference to the Baul people of Bengal, no?

Tofu Carnage, nice.

This is amazing! Thanks for the link Michael

Always loved The Motels.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41pm Michael 98145:

this brings back memories ...
Avatar 3:41pm Wild Neil:

The Motels. Nice move, Scott!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41pm Carmichael:

Heya Scott. This motels song really takes me back.
  3:43pm BriJet:

Not my mom.
Avatar 3:47pm Wild Neil:

Pat Benatar is a Polish girl who sang in the choir...she was so attractive!
  3:47pm Polyus:

Martha Davis is a hotter mom.
Avatar 3:47pm Jeff:

She wasn't a rock anything.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:49pm Michael 98145:

Patricia Mae Andrzejewski
Avatar 3:51pm Wild Neil:

They were BOTH hot! At the SAME TIME!
Avatar 3:52pm fred:

I once saw a video of Moe Tucker (some time after Warhol's death) where she nailed the rock'n'roll gramma look. Or maybe that english-teacher-close-to-retirement variant
  3:54pm Polyus:

Rudy Sarzo possesses some of the worst cornball stage moves in the business.
Avatar 3:54pm Cecile:

Martha Davis had a hell of a rough life. Three teenage kids when the Motels had their biggest hits.
Avatar 3:56pm Cecile:

Poly, my friend had a Kerrang! flexi disc with a Quiet Riot interview on it back in the Metal Health days. Rudy was a character. We used to say "My name is Rudy Sarzo, I play THE BASS!" to each other all the time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58pm Uncle Michael:

Sweet Grateful Dead ballad, tis this Kikagaku Moyo!
Avatar 3:59pm Chris from DC:

Real nice, that one.
Avatar 4:00pm fred:

Damn, I just read that the Nightly Show was canceled. I liked it
Avatar 4:01pm geezerette:

"Silver Owl" is beautiful.
  4:02pm Polyus:

@Cecile - I can't believe he was in BOC for a while. Apparently still doing his hair metal moves, from what people tell me.
Avatar 4:03pm geezerette:

& Guruguru Brain is a hilarious label name.
Avatar 4:04pm Chris from DC:

This made my afternoon.
Avatar 4:09pm Cecile:

he was in BOC for a hot minute. Then Kasim Sultan replaced him. then I think the Bouchards came back, and by that time, I didn't care.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:10pm Carmichael:

Kasim still plays with BOC.
Avatar 4:10pm Cecile:

I'm sorry the Nightly Show got cancelled. I hope someone else picks it up. Maybe TBS? I understand Samantha Bee's show is doing well there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:10pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Morgen! Loves.
Avatar 4:11pm Cecile:

OK, then just Joe Bouchard went back.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:15pm Andrew Waterloo:

I enjoyed the Nightly Show too. Will miss it when it's gone.
Avatar 4:22pm Wild Neil:

This Can song rocks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:23pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Yeah they're so badass.
Avatar 4:25pm Wild Neil:

I gotta get some Can.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:27pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Word - I'm embarrassed I don't know their catalog really well.
Avatar 4:28pm Cecile:

they have a ton of records out.
Avatar 4:29pm Wild Neil:

@RRNov63: These WFMU DJs are like the top 1% of those in the know for music....maybe 0.01% or .001%...they have to program THREE HOURS a WEEK of interesting music...they are FORCED to do the research to find this stuff out.....
Anywho, just look on Discogs and/or Wikipedia and you will see! No shame....I learn something new on EVERY WFMU show I hear....
Avatar 4:30pm Wild Neil:

My GOD Richard Papiercuts is super heavy!!!!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:30pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- I mean - the titles are familiar... :

Avatar 4:30pm Wild Neil:

But its all build-up and no release!
Avatar 4:30pm Cecile:

this is funny, it sounds like Bryan Ferry fronting Rainbow.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:30pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...& me a Cope enthusiast...
Avatar 4:31pm Cecile:

I wouldn't say forced. Forced implies outside pressure. I'd say more "compelled"
Avatar 4:31pm Wild Neil:

Build & Build & Build & Build.........
Avatar 4:31pm Chris from DC:

Or David Byrne almost.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:32pm Scott Williams:

Scott Walker too
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:32pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- & here a nod to David Crosby, just turned 75.
Avatar 4:33pm Cecile:

yeah, but that riff threatens to turn into "Street of Dreams" any second now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:33pm Scott Williams:

there are currently, I think, 3 WFMU DJs in this band, and there've been others in the past
Avatar 4:35pm Cecile:

maybe this fantasy is real.
Avatar 4:35pm geezerette:

David Crosby being 75 is like anyone else being 125.
So glad he made it.
Avatar 4:36pm slugluv1313:

what Cecile said! :)
good afternoon, Scott & all -- hope everyone is staying COOL in this perpetual SWAMP heat
Avatar 4:37pm Cecile:

  4:49pm Brendan:

Aye Cap'n Scott , request permission to come aboard and engage with Funky Synthesizer sounds
Avatar 4:50pm Cecile:

that sounds wonderful!
Avatar 4:50pm Cecile:

Did he do that one song he did with Groove Armada?
Avatar 4:50pm Chris from DC:

Mixing nicely with the world's loudest ice cream truck outside.
Avatar 4:51pm Cecile:

Shameless, that's the song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:51pm Scott Williams:

welcome aboard, Brendan! watch out for exposed wires
  4:51pm Marie:

Kind of reminds me of Moondog
  4:52pm Brendan:

Much obliged I'll keep me hands off the controls and enjoy the ride

Avatar 5:11pm Jeff:

Wow, the Mr Fox is totally right out of that dictionary entry on British Isles Folk Rock, just like you said - and I'd never have known it from that album cover.
