"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.)

@ngh - i guess if we can say that Gig Talk was about anything, sail away was a thing

The Oscar:

A few years ago some punk label put out a gag announcement for a Record Store Day vinyl reissue of Pure Moods. I was legitimately tempted before I realized it was a joke.

@The Oscar: Someone needs to make that happen!

tom from Glasgow:

the original Pure Moods was dope tbh, it went downhill with the 1997 reissue where they replaced Malcolm McLaren and Brian Eno with some dumb film scores and also the X-Files theme for some reason

I like how this song is about a baby having a problem.

Is baby's problem that baby is on fire?

Hi John Allen,
I love the description of your show, I read it through every time. And I really like this Shark Toys business. Keep up the good work.

Marcel...just think of them like your children. You wish there were fewer of them and that you could leave them behind, but you can't.

Much solidarity, Marcel: For me it was last week. Much back-breaking, but all the vinyl is out of boxes and breathing regularly now. Kitchen can stay in boxes for another month. PRIORITIES, man...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:30am
Kelly Jones:

I am loving this show like crazy pants, John. Just ordered the Shark Toys LP. And I am never moving again but the last time I moved I paid movers. It was less painful to listen to their complaints about my LP & CD collection than to family's.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:33am
Marcel M:

@BronwynB: Ugh... I know they get so heavy. Thanks!

Kelly... we are also paying movers! I'm too old for this shit myself now! The older you get the more crap you have... This is def. the first move with like actual furniture and stuff my wife and I care about.

Hah, well done Rev!
