Unstuck in time, The Avant Ghetto wanders through heavy folk, pastoral noise, spiritual rock, harsh jazz and other dimly lit corners of the universe.

Morning, all.

Morning all...lovely start...RIP the great Mr. Rapp.
  12:22am ziL:

Good Morning from Abu Dhabi! Delighted to be listening with you all!
Avatar 12:33am Jeff Conklin:

Quiet out here. Either people hated on Rapp/PBS or everyone's out partying?
  12:35am saucerful:

Neither...listening quietly :)
  12:37am katharsis:

Here. Listening.
  12:37am Agent Peter:

No opinion
  12:38am zenkoan:

What is the sound of a listener making no-sound?
  12:38am MONEYBAG$:

maybe everyone is listening to Charlie Miller's 24 bit Go Ahead transfers
Avatar 12:39am Jeff Conklin:

"No opinion"

  12:41am zenkoan:

Shall we liven things up with a debate about the merits of '80's Dead?
Avatar 12:42am Jeff Conklin:

Please. No. I can't. Not tonight.
Avatar 12:43am tuner fish:

the sound of one fan clapping
Avatar 12:43am Adamsworth:

Hello, I was away from the computer but I liked the Rapp set a lot.
  12:43am Gooberz.jpg:

Might as well get the Dead debate started early; with any luck we can wrap before the Dead set of hour 2 is over
Avatar 12:44am Jeff Conklin:

Hahahah @gooberz
  12:44am Gooberz.jpg:

I'll start: "I mean, John Mayer?? Really?!?"
  12:45am saucerful:

And I will interrupt the '80s Dead convo by saying I love this Kenji Endo...not familiar with him.
Avatar 12:45am Adamsworth:

We can debate if it was good or bad that they asked the Hells Angels to do security at Altamont. What do you think? Ha ha.
  12:46am Gooberz.jpg:

Oh man, someone brought up Altamont... comin in hot! Yeah, that was Jerry's idea
  12:47am Agent Peter:

Mo opinion about Sonic Youth either, in case it comes up after I crash out.
Avatar 12:48am Adamsworth:

ha ha

"I've got some friends" usually ends with a headache, anyone will tell you
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:55am sberger:

Was Rock Sculley's suggestion to the Stones. "Men of integrity" I believe is how he put it...
  12:58am saucerful:

I was able to do a Google translate - it means "Rainbow overflowing (I was overpowered and very tired) haha
  12:58am Agent Peter:

If it's in Japanese then it hasn't been translated.

Just sayin'..
  12:59am saucerful:

Nope Mr. Agent Peter...
  1:00am Gooberz.jpg:

Yeah but the Angels were Jerry's friends
  1:02am Agent Peter:

It was Jeff who was referring to the "Japanese translation". It's going to be the same in Japanese as it is in Japanese, right?
  1:03am judy from croton:

Can’t sleep. My reward: avant ghetto.
  1:03am saucerful:

@Agent Peter - whatever you say, you're the agent... ;-)
  1:04am Gooberz.jpg:

Yeah Pearls Before Swine were major; turned on to those records by Twisted Village, Wayne and Kate of Major Stars fame, late 90s etc. RIP Mr Rapp!
  1:05am Gooberz.jpg:

69 Dead is kinda all I fuck with at this point.
  1:05am Gooberz.jpg:

*Dead wise. Nice selection, Jeff!
  1:05am Agent Peter:

Turn up the bass drum!
  1:07am saucerful:

Can't go wrong with '69 at the Avalon...
  1:08am saucerful:

haha I just realized we sound like weird wine connoisseurs...
  1:09am Gooberz.jpg:

Yes to Avalon; I also really love those Ark shows in Boston 4/21 and 4/22/69 I have DAT transferred somewhere that sound fantastic. Only Dead tapes I have left
  1:10am Gooberz.jpg:

Heeeeeeere it comes....

Judy who told me the Renbourn/Dead story?
  1:26am judy from croton:

Why, yes.
Avatar 1:29am Jeff Conklin:

Welcome! Never saw you around these parts before...
  1:30am MONEYBAG$:

this might be better than that dark star tbh
  1:32am judy from croton:

My first time, so to speak. I’m an archive-ist.
Avatar 1:35am Jeff Conklin:

Right on. Sorry youre sleepless but glad to have you.
Avatar 1:36am Jeff Conklin:

@Money: 'Midden Mound' might be my fave solo thing Matt's ever done. Whole record rules...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:47am Zetti:

That was wonderful... thanks
  1:48am MONEYBAG$:

Just looked up the price on that MV LP at forced exposure and my eyes exploded
  1:49am Gooberz.jpg:

Avatar 1:52am Adamsworth:

  1:53am judy from croton:

Thanks jeff. Helped me get calm and iron out some wrinkles so i can go back to sleep and listen tomorrow. Quite brilliant.
Avatar 1:53am Jeff Conklin:

The LP was mad expensiv because it was a UK-only release and done real high end style. I live with the tape in my car.
  1:56am MONEYBAG$:

  2:13am MattWuet:
