Pitchers and catchers report this week! A nice thought on a messy day in the Northeast.

V-Day Massacre. Such a great song by Little Steven. Alas, of the 3 versions, this the weakest. Cocktail Slippers is my fave.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/12/17 3:15pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Whatever LittleSteven says or is said about him - I'm grateful for the UndergroundGarage & all he & it have done for Duh Music - especially before I got my own interwebz & FMU dashed my brains out like a brick to the skull.

91.1FM just died like a minute ago it seems maybe possibly what do I know.

Yes. Dead. Just a weak bit of WSHU and nothing else.

it's back now and gone and back probably the ice.

Can anyone recommend a good documentary film about the origins / early days of garage rock?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/12/17 4:15pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

@DaveinPA: No ! - now that you mention it !!...'That Thing You Do' is a decent Hollywoodization of the archetype to explain it to the squares...
  Sun. 2/12/17 4:20pm Old Dave:

@ Dave also in PA- Hi! Frank Zappa sure as hell made Joe's Garage for people like me who lacked the courage to jump in back then. Of course he had to poke fun, but worth considering, maybe.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/12/17 4:24pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

For all the docs being made - this is a giant glaring deficit. Then we'd need someone to not screw it all up.
Avatar Sun. 2/12/17 4:26pm Mailman Tom:

DaveinPA: You may like the Joan Jett movie that was made several years ago. I think it's called "Light of Day"
  Sun. 2/12/17 4:28pm Al:

@DaveinPA: If you don't mind reading a book rather than seeing a movie, read Dave Marsh's book about "Louie Louie". It's a great look at the Seattle garage scene of the late '50's.
  Sun. 2/12/17 4:28pm DaveinPA:

To get more specific, I'm interested in the early use of the fuzz pedal, and it seems a lot of the early garage / psych makes great use of that effect. I'm not enough of a musicologist to know what the technical term is for the particular sound I hear a lot on this program (BK calls it real rock and roll, and its hard not to agree) - that dark, minor-key echoey sound - it reminds me a bit of what Bill Monroe described Bluegrass as the 'high lonesome sound' but for another generation...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/12/17 4:31pm Ken From Hyde Park:

It's the snowy black hole of rock and roll!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/12/17 4:33pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

There are many things tangential to it - an ArthurLee & Love doc - & compilation videos - which is a model for resources - but not the Genre Doc that suddenly seems so obvious & necessary! The original compilers of 'Nuggets' defined it as the window in time & style between FratRawk like 'LouieLouie' & Post-Psych Prog late in the 1960s that got too ponderous & 'serious' (in terms of our Genre here)...that's pretty good, I think.
FMUvian P-90 has pointed out the earlier fuzzboxes were different than the latter ones - & many like myself have noted that the early ones actually *cut* your sustain & were like angry snotty buzzing mosquitoes. The later ones boosted your guitar & correlate more perfectly w/ the HeavyMetal era & big Guitar Heroes. Notably - Hendrix, in his quite brief career as a success, was transitional from one type (1st album) to the other (say, Woodstock)...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/12/17 4:35pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Signature Sonics *would* be but one critical focus of the GarageRawkDoc I now imagine...
  Sun. 2/12/17 4:36pm Old Dave:

I was pretty surprised how much info is here:
I nominate Rev Rabbit to consult on the project, and agree it's a thing worth documenting,
assuming 180,000 bands did come out of the movement.
That's a lot of beer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/12/17 4:38pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

One thing about the Genre - it's staggering that they're still trax one hasn't heard yet being dug up & circulated !! Lotsa damned Boomers scraping a 45 together. Amazing.

Awesome show, Bill, as always.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/12/17 4:42pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...It seems obvious now that the next fourCD 'Nuggets' box needs to be NonWestern trax - not the U.S. (Vol. I) or Europe (II - w/ some International trax actually) - but Asia & Africa 7 the like...that's the buzz now...
'My pimples spelled I Luv You': the perfect musical representation of MAD...
  Sun. 2/12/17 4:58pm Old Dave:

Nice job, Mr Kelly. Love your show.
  Sun. 2/12/17 4:58pm DaveinPA:

@RevolutionRabbit - I build fuzz boxes (among other similar things) in my spare time, and you're right about about the early designs cutting sustain. The artists who used them had to wring the neck with heavy vibrato to get a good sustain out of them, but were rewarded by a glorious resulting effect - something that fell out of use once the more sustainy fuzzes (and later overdrives) came into favor. Erik Brann of Iron Butterfly had an unreal vibrato. Also the early fuzzes rolled off the highs coming from the guitar so it wasn't as pick-attack laden as the later units - more of a wooly howl.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/12/17 5:01pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

IronButterfly under-recognized yer ask me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/12/17 5:04pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Tangentially - what I call the 'SanFrancisco Vibrato' : very quick strong vibrato there - like sweating out a certain substance - once real Psych began...
  Sun. 2/12/17 5:18pm Joe:

@DaveinPA There was one called GARAGE ROCK USA that came out about 15 years ago. Seeds, Standells, Electric Prunes, and plenty others were featured. And on the topic of docs, don't forget SEX & BROADCASTING...all about WFMU! (But missing King Bill, though.)

Thx Joe !
