We'll be right back after we start happening, after ... this

Polyus! Geezerette! Welcome

hey Gary and all
- i'm actually still working but inside so i get to hear (sort of) and check in now and then.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:10pm Gary:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:10pm Gary:

Don't let your coworkers hear this craziness
Avatar 7:13pm northguineahills:

I spent nearly 7 months listening to two Keiji Haino albums a week from a download I got from a friend. His output is amazing,
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:14pm Polyus:

Going to be seeing Narita from High Rise in Chicago in a week and a half. Can't remember who his backing band is for the show, but I think they also supported a past Acid Mothers tour.
Avatar 7:14pm hyde:

yay, Acid Mothers Temple!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:15pm Gary:

Sweet, NGH! Yeah, it's amazing how much he's put out ... yay, Hyde!
Avatar 7:16pm hyde:

so last week i posted on the wrong playlist and got scolded by Gary's mother. my aim is to do better this week.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:16pm Gary:

I'll scold you! But, I'm going to need an infraction of some kind
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:17pm Gary:

Oh, wait -- by "better" you mean *not* scolded, not *scolded more*
Avatar 7:17pm hyde:

i'm sure i'll pull some screwup. it's what i do.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:17pm Dave in Vermont:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:17pm Gary:

Avatar 7:18pm hyde:

haha, yeah. i was a bit chastened by the mom scold ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:18pm Gary:

That's why she's mom
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19pm Gary:

I'll have you know, I *did* call her the next day ... her *birthday*, by the way (I had forgotten, until I called)
Avatar 7:24pm hyde:

haha i hope you faked your way out of that one. and that she has your back is no surprise!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:24pm Polyus:

Mayuko played some Ainu recordings this past weekend with a little background. Completely new to me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:24pm Gary:

Oh, thank you, Polyus -- I'm going to have to listen to that
Avatar 7:25pm northguineahills:

The Aino chirping reminded me of Sten Hanson's tonal poetry pieces.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:25pm Gary:

I don't know those, NGH, and clearly I need to hear them!
Avatar 7:26pm northguineahills:

A lot of his stuff is on Fylkingen Records. Their Text Sound Comps are good place to start.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:26pm Gary:

OH AND BY THE WAY: Please feel free to REJECT any of my examples of each super attribute and / or toss your own alternative example out here for us ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:27pm Gary:

Avatar 7:28pm northguineahills:

This is more supra ASMR, IMHO, then super ASMR ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:29pm Gary:

I'll need an argument for that, NGH!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:30pm Gary:

Although, I don't want to turn away bald assertion, either ...
Avatar 7:39pm geezerette:

YAY !!!
Avatar 7:40pm hyde:

geezerette is getting little rowdy
Avatar 7:41pm geezerette:

oops...( ! )
Avatar 7:42pm hyde:

you spilled my drink, heh
Avatar 7:44pm geezerette:

and i want azuki bean mochis.
Avatar 7:46pm hyde:

there was one Cornelius album that i loved in the 90's....Fantasma. i listened to that a lot.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:46pm Gary:

I will have to find a way to sneak a track from that album in this month somewhere -- I have it, but haven't played it yet (not even to myself)
Avatar 7:47pm geezerette:

amazing to hear a super-hot artist contradicted this way by resetting.
Avatar 7:50pm steve:

hey Gary
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:51pm Gary:

Super Steve!
Avatar 7:51pm geezerette:

Gary, this is a great idea.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:54pm Gary:

Thanks, Geezerette!
Avatar 7:54pm hyde:

another record from Japan that i have undying love for is the mysterious Brast Burn record from the 70's. But it's notoriously DJ unfriendly, as it's basically two sides that are 23 minutes long apiece. Worth looking for if you don't have it. Cray record. (I have it, but it's on my unavailable backups).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:54pm Gary:

Oh, I have it :)
Avatar 7:55pm hyde:

@Gary that record is amazing
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:55pm Gary:

Maybe I'll play it as "Super mysterious" ... [thinking icon]
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:56pm Gary:

Super inexplicable, maybe?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:04pm melinda:

hi Gary and group!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:04pm Gary:

Super Melinda!
Avatar 8:04pm hyde:

yay melinda!
Avatar 8:09pm geezerette:

kon-ichi-wa, Melinda!
Avatar 8:17pm hyde:

will there be a super depressing set this month? there's always those Morita Doji LPs i sent you years ago!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:18pm Gary:

I totally forgot about super depressing!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:19pm Gary:

Maki gives me chills
Avatar 8:28pm geezerette:

Jungle Boogie! Raunchy!
Avatar 8:28pm hyde:

i love those Morita Doji records, but they are soooo melancholy. it sure doesn't help that i got them from a Dutch music blogger who died of cancer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:29pm Gary:

Oh, right -- Doug talks about that guy ever now and then
Avatar 8:33pm hyde:

@Gary it was heartbreaking. he posted a lot of great stuff (much from Japan) and then would occasionally say he was going for treatments. and then ultimately there was final post from his mother saying that her sweet boy was gone. the saddest blog thing i've ever seen.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:36pm Gary:

Man ...
Avatar 8:37pm hyde:

it was rough. but i'm bringing down the chat! where is geezerette? is she swinging from the chandelier yet?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:39pm Gary:

Super bummer comes before super chandelier swingin'
Avatar 8:45pm northguineahills:

Nice appropriation of the Kecak Ramayana chant, and back in the early 70s!
Avatar 8:48pm northguineahills:

I found a bunch of Japanese flexis from the early 60s at a thrift store. I'm still scared to touch them as they're so fragile. (they sound great)

I wish I was into music when I was a kid in the late 80s. All I bought was MJ, Weird Al, Genesis and Guns & Roses when I was there.
Avatar 8:49pm geezerette:

I'm Super Mega Multi tasking! There used to be a huge Japanese Super Market a block from my workplace, part of a Japanese chain. I'd go there for a break and wander up and down the aisles reading translated labels and laughing. The candy and canned coffee drinks had the best labels. Still have an empty can of "Coffee Boss" in my studio.
Avatar 8:49pm northguineahills:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:50pm Gary:

NGH, you should digitize them!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:51pm Gary:

I'm a fan of the Coffee Boss, Geez
Avatar 8:53pm geezerette:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:53pm melinda:

Space music always good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:54pm Gary:

It's, dare I say it ... "the place"
Avatar 8:57pm northguineahills:

Still kicking myself for not discovering my favorite Japanese music while I still lived there. all of the concerts I could of seen (I left when I was 13). I did get to see some Kabuki performances (my idea).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:58pm melinda:

Take me to your leader.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:05pm Gary:

Well, at least you saw the kabuki
Avatar 9:07pm northguineahills:

oh, and everything in Kamakura, Kyoto and Nara. I dragged my family anywhere w/ historical significance. Luckily, my parents didn't mind so much, my younger brothers on the other hand...
Avatar 9:09pm geezerette:

NGH, you have nothing to regret!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:10pm Polyus:

Yeah, that makes me want to kick myself for growing up in Michigan.
Avatar 9:10pm geezerette:

Your family was fortunate to be dragged!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:14pm Gary:

What everyone else said, NGH
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:17pm Ike:

Too busy reading apocalyptic news articles to comment, except to say: Hi!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:17pm Gary:

Super Hi, Super Ike!
Avatar 9:28pm hyde:

Ike Reiko was inevitable.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:29pm Parq:

Dug that Shijima, Silence. I had an upstairs neighbor like that once.
Avatar 9:29pm hyde:

i'm hoping the same for Kaji Meiko, i admit
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:30pm Parq:

I also had an upstairs neighbor like Ike Reiko. But that's another story.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:31pm Gary:

Super Parq! ... I wonder if I have any Kaji Meiko ....
Avatar 9:37pm hyde:

i'm not really requesting, but if you don't have Kaji Meiko it should be out there, given the Quentin Tarantino soundtrack thing. mine is also alas on backups i won't have access to for a bit....
Avatar 9:40pm northguineahills:

I have to admit I might only have 1/3 of these bands records/cd/cassettes.

Busy packing, off to the store, I might be back before 10.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:42pm Gary:

I'll do some research -- I still have another 12 hours to fill, so every suggestion helps!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:44pm Gary:

Following this show, starting at 10 PM EDT tonight, Larry Grogan's Testify! This week, Heroes, Villains and Wild Honey: wfmu.org...
Avatar 9:45pm hyde:

dude, if every suggestion helps, then you'll find yourself playing the Gerogerigegege!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:45pm Gary:

Oh, I definitely plan to play them! Also Gaseneta
Avatar 9:47pm hyde:

Avatar 9:53pm geezerette:

Thanks Gary! And shoppers!
Avatar 9:53pm hyde:

awww, it's over. thank you!
Avatar 9:54pm Jesse Kaminsky:

Thanks Gary!
