"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

I'd like to request some moaning, some radio technology stuff, zombie noises, and a slowed-down echo of two dumpsters crashing into each other for 15 minutes.

John in Bklyn:

Can't believe high school kids could play that well in 1981! Little rat bastards. I wonder how many of them are in jail for securities fraud and tax evasion?

Jn in Bk: probably only a small minority of the ones who've actually committed those acts.

Some of these tracks are hard to find if you just copy and paste them into a browser sp's all over the place.

Oh, John Allen. I thought "JA in the AM" was going to be Jim Amels. I might listen anyway, though.
