Avatar 2:06pm Otis Fodder:

@Rich - Holy cow, he's loose! (great Nat Lamp reference)!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:06pm Jan Turkenburg:

yep, recieving lout an clear!
Avatar 2:06pm Martinibomb:

Yup everything is perfect
Avatar 2:06pm Mr Fab:

loud and clear U1000, got the whole snazzy intro this time
Avatar 2:06pm Ursula1000:

sweet! doing it live for the first time---!
Avatar 2:07pm Otis Fodder:

Perfecto, intro and all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:07pm Rich in Washington:

@Otis: I just played that on the work PA. Let's see what happens.
Avatar 2:10pm Mr Fab:

Sake martinis are real, btw. I have had them. I've made them, even.
Avatar 2:11pm Ursula1000:

those would be perfect for this 80s Japanese menu!
Avatar 2:15pm Mr Fab:

'80s Japan? I have/had records by YMO, P-Model, The Plastics, Frank Chickens...er, I'm stumped. As always, WFMU DJs are hippin me to scenes I'm only vaguely aware of.
Avatar 2:16pm Ursula1000:

those r all great! a lot of YMO dudes on these records---they did a ton of session work and production
Avatar 2:18pm Mr Fab:

Ah, Ok. And i' ve had some Riuchi Sakamoto albums at some point, not sure what decade. Love whoever's jammin on the steel drums!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:18pm Rich in Washington:

I love YMO! I think they first ever import record I ever bought new was an YMO album.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:20pm Rich in Washington:

There's also some tripped out folk, like Kazuhiko Kato's album Super Gas from '71.
Avatar 2:20pm geezerette:

This is the kind of music Shane Gline's characters listen(ed)to.
Avatar 2:25pm Ursula1000:

and now some City Pop---Japanese yacht rock vibes in full effect!
Avatar 2:27pm Mr Fab:

i have never heard so many steel drums featured in non-calypso musics. (Which is a very good thing, ALL genres could benefit from steel drums, eh?)
Avatar 2:28pm Ursula1000:

there's a great new comp from Light In The Attic called Pacific Breeze where that last track others from that era appear--Japanese City Pop, AOR and Boogie 76-86
Avatar 2:31pm Martinibomb:

I'll have to grab that Pacific Breeze comp sounds great!
Avatar 2:32pm Martinibomb:

Hey do you still have that flip of the Danger Diabolik theme you made like decades ago? Was trying to dig it up the other day with no luck.
Avatar 2:33pm Ursula1000:

the drum and bass one?
Avatar 2:34pm Martinibomb:

Yup pretty sure that's it. Seemed like an older one of yours before your style got really settled in
Avatar 2:36pm Mr Fab:

I'd be all ears for a "Deep Down" remix.
Avatar 2:36pm Martinibomb:

it wasn't deep down it was the main guitar theme
Avatar 2:37pm Martinibomb:

but now that you mention it.. maybe I'll stick it on my todo list heh
Avatar 2:38pm Ursula1000:

Chase Sequence No. 3! I'll track it down. Yeah, a nice remix of Deep Down would be ace. Search on YT for a Mike Patton version of it that he did w this Italian big band. A-MAZING!
Avatar 2:39pm Ursula1000:

its called Mike Patton's Mondo Cane
Avatar 2:39pm Mr Fab:

Whooah! Just added that to the top of my must-look-for list.
Avatar 2:40pm Martinibomb:

Ooh I did hear that Mike Patton version and yeah! totally that guy killed it.
Avatar 2:40pm Mr Fab:

Mike Patton does some nutty stuff. Certainly haven't heard anyone else cover Lon Chaney jr's "Spiderbaby" Theme.
Avatar 2:41pm Otis Fodder:

Patton's Mondo Cane is amazing. Morricone Youth have a wonderful version from last year on the album, "Danger Diabolik" too.
Avatar 2:41pm Mr Fab:

i love any version of "Temptation," one of those '50s exotica standards, but this is special.
Avatar 2:41pm Martinibomb:

"Spiderbaby? Yes, it's got the head of a spider and the body of a baby." -- Father Ted
Avatar 2:41pm Ursula1000:

yeah that Morricone Youth one is awesome
Avatar 2:42pm Otis Fodder:

Devon from Morricone Youth (and the WFMU show Morricone Island)!
Avatar 2:43pm Martinibomb:

Devon/Morricone youth grew up with a good friend of mine. So it's funny to my friend that we both have shows on WFMU right now
Avatar 2:45pm Mr Fab:

Yeah, Devon's been doing well for himself with Morricone Youth. i recently walked into a shop, and there was one of their albums on display. They're getting around, getting some distribution. Good for him!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:45pm coelacanth∅:

- sounding spectacular
Avatar 2:45pm Otis Fodder:

That's awesome, big fan of Devon's show (and band).
Avatar 2:46pm Mr Fab:

Hello, our fishy friend!
Avatar 2:46pm Ursula1000:

Arigatou gozaimasu!
Avatar 2:54pm Martinibomb:

Thanks for a great show today. Enjoyed it while I work on my paintings...
Avatar 2:55pm Ursula1000:

my pleasure! love falling into these rabbit holes of sub genres and compiling these tracks. and the live feed worked! whew.
Avatar 2:56pm Martinibomb:

Yup! I love the whole live feed thing it's super cool. Glad its all working ya sound awesome
Avatar 2:59pm Mr Fab:

Everyone's getting the hang of live shows pretty quickly. I'm starting to relax a bit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:00pm coelacanth∅:

Thanks Ursula1000! apologies to anyone who doesn't like that dirty beach smell. i can't help it.
Avatar 3:01pm Ursula1000:

Avatar 3:02pm Mr Fab:

Fascinatin' rhythms today Ursula1000, thanks so much!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:02pm Jan Turkenburg:

Avatar 3:02pm Martinibomb:
