  3:10pm Polyus:

Enjoyed the vaguely Elton John-esque vibe of that Marc Johnson tune. Words I never thought I would say.
Avatar 3:11pm Wild Neil:

Peace all. This sounds kinda like Can a little bit with a tiny bit of King Crimson.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:11pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Guardians of the galaxy ... pfft! Being the guardian of Monday afternoons is a much more prestigious position.

I spent most of the past two days looking for a checkbook, in vain. Right now, I rushed to greet Scott, stubbed my toe on a forgotten box, and there was the checkbook
Avatar 3:13pm Wild Neil:

Big Blood does an amazing Sumatraan song. This sounds a bit like Portishead...I think Big Blood use echo really well in a haunting way.
Avatar 3:13pm Bas NL:

Wow for Big Blood & Thunder Crutch.. this is an awesome track!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:14pm Scott Williams:

oh, HEY there everybuddy! So glad you're here. I think I'm considering requests more than usual today

This brother Ah with its plangent thumb pianos going reminds me of when I was stoned in the 90's wandering around the African exhibit at the Museum of Natural History really grooving on the thumb piano...Right now I am coiling up thermocouple wires listening.

I'lll break my promises, pol-style: please play some Afrirampo. Or Oneida's Sheet of Easter
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38pm Scott Williams:

@fred I think we can do Afrirampo - Sheets of Easter is maybe too special, played it pretty recently
Avatar 3:39pm Chris from DC:

First album Eurythmics maybe?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41pm Scott Williams:

@Chris from DC, killer album! Funnily enough, I've actually got The Tourists in the cart today, I hope that'll suffice
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:42pm fred:

I'll be seeing Afrirampo soon, psyched about that. Haven't seen Oneida in a while, can you relay my complaint?

Psyche: Latin from the Ancient Greek psukhḗ, “soul, breath”

Tourists would be great.

  4:01pm Polyus:

Jesse Jarnow 's appearance in my town over the weekend was pretty cool. I don't know if there was a local WFMU contingent among the small audience, since I don't what anyone looks like IRL. Unfortunately he didn't have any copies of Heads with him.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:01pm Stanley:

Pre-clicked, this one.
Oh yes.

@fred (4:13), it's studio hybernation time; hope to crawl out after summer & get over to that side of the water again eventually (!)
Avatar 4:19pm northguineahills:

Well, this band was made for Matt Warwick (The Trash Company)
Avatar 4:20pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Greatest 7" of all time.

@Bronwyn: Do a search for: "The Trash Company" band.

You don't have either of those new Slowdive tracks, do you? Or any other kind o' shoegaze-laden crud would be delicious.

Hi, Ike. Your "I regret nothing" Dalek pic gave me a chuckle.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:40pm Ike:

Thanks @Parq. Have temporarily changed my avatar back to that for everyone's amusement. (Of course many Dr. Who fans have a love-hate relationship with the genocidal pepperpots. They sure do show up a lot lately, though in the current season it looks like they may just have a cameo.)
Avatar 4:41pm Chris from DC:

Woo-hoo, Tourists!
  4:44pm psysci:

I request something from The Residents - Ghost of Hope. Which I have not heard yet.

Avatar 4:46pm V Priceless:

@Scott: would dig The Damned "Therapy" if you are so reclined! : )
  4:49pm zopa:

Don't know why, but KaS Product reminds me of XTC's Battery Brides.
  4:49pm JakeGould:

This is an excellent new-wave skronky swt, Scott. Feeling the early 1980s right here.

Avatar 4:52pm Jeff:

It'd be great to hear a Lounge Lizards hit, in honor of John Lurie (who's disappeared from the musical scene for apparently a bunch of complicated and unpleasant reasons)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:59pm Bronwyn Bishop:

oh boy i love richard youngs!
  5:01pm melinda:

I'd like to hear Lounge Lizards (or any other John Lurie) too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:04pm fred:

@Bronwyn: Do you have a fill-in lined up in the near future?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:04pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I remember when I first heard this on Airborne Event. I listened to it like three times a day for a week.
Avatar 5:06pm TDK60:

I'd heard Youngs before on WFMU and it registered enough in my ears; again now.
  5:07pm melinda:

@Jeff: did you hear Trouble's interview with him from a while back? I was not an FMU listener back then but found the archived show through a Google search.
Avatar 5:08pm V Priceless:

great music to go with this Telsa interview: sciencevibe.com...

Thinking of FMA, Cheyenne's new show debuts tomorrow at 3PM on the Drummer Stream. Thinking of Drummer Stream, Meghan's Underwater Theme Park has returned at noon Thursdays.

Hearing from this Richard Thompson album recently on FMU, an overlooked classic.

Saw R. Thompson w/Danny Thompson about 10 years back. Packed house; one could've heard a napkin drop.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:17pm doctorjazz:

Saw him this year in Manhattan, put on a great show. (he was solo, took requests; we put 3 tunes on paper, he put them in a bowl, picked them and played whatever he picked, with the help of someone on a computer who printed out lyrics).
