Little Danny's avatar View Little Danny's profile Options

Postwar atmospherica. High bop modernism and Afro-Latin sounds, twilight exotica and soundtrack moods, soul stompers and weepers, hypnotic R&B and blues, mystical '60s pop, lonely country, lonelier rock 'n' roll, instrumental weirdness, electronic creaking. Bringing worlds beyond into the worlds at hand.

OH YES IT IS. So druggy! Also, German
Avatar 10:16pm geezerette:

It is! Man, Bo Diddley, some kind of genius.
Avatar 10:18pm Little Danny:

I couldn't agree more geez. Bo is hands-down my favorite guitar player

Avatar 10:19pm Little Danny:

And now: an official classic™
Avatar 10:22pm geezerette:

He's always hypnotic and spacey. I love him too.
Never heard this Feelies record before, you can really hear the connection. Thanks for making it!
Avatar 10:23pm hyde:

aw, haven't listened to The Feelies for awhile now.
Avatar 10:24pm geezerette:

Lately all the roots of VU are exposed and all roads track forward and back to Lou. Zeitgeisty.
Avatar 10:27pm Little Danny:

Quite accurate, geez! Strains of hypnotic guitar and pounding drums course through postwar electric music
Avatar 10:42pm geezerette:

The opening of this recording always reminds me of Billy Strayhorn.
Lovely wistful melancholy. Bill Evans is a favorite of mine.
Avatar 10:44pm Little Danny:

Ah, yes - wish I had some Strayhorn cued up or easily at hand. Any particular Strayhorn faves, geez?
Avatar 10:47pm geezerette:

A flower is a lovesome thing. Anything really.
But this is perfect too. :)
Avatar 10:51pm Little Danny:

Ah, thanks geez - I'll look into that Strayhorn recommendation
Avatar 10:55pm geezerette:

My pleasure Danny. I'm enjoying this so much.

I'm sad to see you go, hyde, but you picked a perfect set to drift off by

  11:01pm Pete from Melbourne Austraila:

Hi Danny, nice Jazz, missed the start of the show, but will listen back when it comes up latter. Could I request some King Nando, at some time in the future, cheers Pete
Avatar 11:03pm Little Danny:

Pistol Pete! Glad you could make it. Will absolutely work in some King Nando for ya
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:05pm JtotheK:

nice Dream Syndicate selection earlier ...

J2tK, Dano59: the party may now pop off!
Avatar 11:13pm Dano59:

oooh I love Summer Sun ... a great alternate-universe hit
Avatar 11:15pm Little Danny:

oh, totally - those hooks are deep. And very Swedish, somehow
Avatar 11:16pm Dano59:

Sweden's been a wellspring of great pop into this century...
Avatar 11:19pm Little Danny:

absolutely, tho I can't quite nail down why their hooks are so sublime
Avatar 11:19pm geezerette:

So beautiful.
Avatar 11:19pm Dano59:

Clandestine exposure to the Hollies, maybe?
Avatar 11:20pm Dano59:

agrred, geezerette. Hauntingly so
Avatar 11:21pm Little Danny:

Yep, and blonde and beautiful genetics manifest in harmonies
Avatar 11:21pm geezerette:

yep. :)
Avatar 11:22pm Little Danny:

Apologies for the unintentionally Aryan message of my comment above. Oof
Avatar 11:23pm Dano59:

Chad & Jeremy & Peter Noone might take it as a compliment
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:24pm JtotheK:

and it shall live on in perpetuity via the magic of the message board archive! ha ha.
Avatar 11:24pm geezerette:

It's OK,think we know what you meant.
Avatar 11:25pm Little Danny:

Avatar 11:26pm geezerette:

Hey Dano59,pleased to "meet" you.
  11:27pm Dean:

Besides, I don't believe phenotypes comprise a zero-sum economy. "Blonde and beautiful" doesn't mean "not-blonde isn't beautiful," too.
Avatar 11:28pm geezerette:

Dean,well done. :)
Avatar 11:29pm Little Danny:

yes, thanks for the save, Dean! And hello!
Avatar 11:31pm geezerette:

more gorgeousness.
  11:33pm Dean:

Reminds me to read On the Origin of Species. One of these days.
Avatar 11:37pm Little Danny:

This Googie Rene is so ridiculous. But fun!
  11:38pm Pete from Melbourne Austraila:

Nice version of a oft well covered fave 'Feelin Good' by Pat Bowie, some one I not familar with, Duke Pearson track is a killer as well, Romesville Dad!!
Avatar 11:41pm Little Danny:

glad you dug, Pete - rare is the bad version of "Feeling Good," tho that Pat Bowie is one of the best in my opinion
  11:48pm Dean:

Bill Evans. I sure wish there he were again.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:48pm JtotheK:

enjoyed that googie rene, and the pike!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:54pm JtotheK:

great show, as always! cheers everyone.
  11:55pm Pete from Melbourne Austraila:

Yep nice show Danny, want one of those WMFU bumper stickers! Get the word out down here in Melb Australia!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:57pm coelacanth:

Thanks Danny!

goonight all.
Avatar 11:58pm geezerette:

Great show, thanks for it!
Avatar 11:58pm Little Danny:
