Great start!

Hi MB, this version works well!

very nice!
i'm off to the chores i can't avoid any longer, but i'll be back!

Hello Everyone! Jan Geezer Fab Lee let the audio be free here on listener supported WFMU sheena's jungle room

Hello! What a crazy day I'm having. Work's insane.
Avatar 4:07pm Linda Lee:

i'm set to order 'david bowie made me gay'. answers at last.
sorry, Rich. hope your work day's over soon.
Avatar 4:08pm Otis Fodder:

Hi MB and everyone, shifted rooms.
Avatar 4:09pm Otis Fodder:

Hoping to see Stereolab in 2 weeks, sold out but watching for folks selling tix. New reissues out are fantastic.
  4:13pm Martinibomb:

Hey Otis!
Avatar 4:14pm Otis Fodder:

Hey M-Bomb!
Avatar 4:14pm Mr Fab:

I'm imagining jeff Bridges trying to pick up a girl at a bar with this.
Avatar 4:15pm Otis Fodder:

Rich, here too with work. Been real hard to listen/chat lately, but finding those small pockets like today.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:18pm Rich in Washington:

Zappa doesn't get a ton of play in the WFMUverse.
  4:19pm Martinibomb:

Why is that?
Avatar 4:20pm Linda Lee:

too easy?
Avatar 4:21pm Linda Lee:

the FMU djs like to defy expectations & they'd almost be expected to play Zappa. so they don't. :-D
Avatar 4:22pm Otis Fodder:

That's a bit true Rich. Gonna pull out a Zappa LP or two on Sunday. Already have some King Crimson (as saw them live last night) out.
Avatar 4:24pm Mr Fab:

Jeez, add King Crimson to the list of 'see-em-before-they-croak' (to quote the name of Cheech and Chong's recent reunion tour) Tho I did see Fripp with a solo group ages ago.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:24pm Rich in Washington:

I think sometimes people associate Zappa with his more sensationalized solo albums and sometimes noxious personality. I am a huge early Mothers freak. So much good music from them.
Avatar 4:25pm Mr Fab:

"I Can Phil It " - ha
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:25pm Rich in Washington:

Holy crap, Otis! You saw The Crim for realz last night! Woah!
Avatar 4:25pm Otis Fodder:

Bongo Fury... Freak Out... and so on... yes!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:26pm Rich in Washington:

I wish I had me some bongos...
  4:27pm Martinibomb:

How was King Crim live??
Avatar 4:27pm Otis Fodder:

Yea, was amazing. Fripp and Levin played as if they were 20 years old and 3 drummers. 7 piece band doing Larks, Court album (as it's 50 years this year) + Easy Money... the best. 3 hours they played with a 20min intermission. Nutso.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:28pm Rich in Washington:

also interesting that an artist with as an intimidating discography like John Zorn doesn't get a ton of airplay around these parts. I think similar reasons.
Avatar 4:28pm Mr Fab:

King Crimson were playing at the Greek Theater, which, like all concert tickets nowadays, is so freakin expensive. And we've already recently seen Blondie/ Elvis Costello, and Brian Wilson/The Zombies at the Greek recently. Uh, Li'l Fab, you don't need school supplies, or like food or anything this month, do you..?
Avatar 4:28pm Otis Fodder:

Fav part was the 21st Century Schizoid Man encore ... and Starless and Bible Black was nuts.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:29pm Rich in Washington:

Sounds like fun. I haven't heard much of the new lineup other than a few yootoobs here and there...
Avatar 4:29pm Otis Fodder:

It was pricey, for sure. $90 CAD a ticket (so around $70 USD).
Avatar 4:29pm Mr Fab:

I would totally lose my poop at those, Otis.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:30pm Rich in Washington:

Nice mixin' Martinibomb! This is luverly!
Avatar 4:30pm Otis Fodder:

It was a fun rock concert and my first time seeing Crimson. Worth it for the cost. Regret so many artists I pass on and then they pass.
Avatar 4:32pm Otis Fodder:

Only caught Elvis Costello once Fab, in Seattle, doing Juliet Letters in the late 1990s. Really great show.
Avatar 4:32pm Linda Lee:

i think you're right, Rich.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:32pm Rich in Washington:

yeah. I was surprised when Crimson reformed. I thought Fripp was sort of getting out of the performing biz. This might be his last hurrah.
Avatar 4:34pm Linda Lee:

the fmu dj is *not* going to play what a 'freeform radio' dj might be expected to play. no no no!
Avatar 4:34pm Otis Fodder:

They are doing mad touring, every year for the past 5 or 6 and have visited Montreal 2 or 3 times over the past decade. Finally said, okay, I gotta go.
Avatar 4:37pm Linda Lee:

it's good to realize there's really only one chance you have to get something like that done ~ the one coming up right now.
Avatar 4:37pm Linda Lee:

don't count on another time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:38pm Rich in Washington:

I don't think any version of Crimson has played Portland since 2001 or so, opening for Tool(!).
Avatar 4:39pm Mailman Tom:

I went to see the movie, Medium Cool, when it was on the big screen. Luckily, for the filmmakers, the 1968 police riot in Chicago was happening while they were filming.
Avatar 4:39pm geezerette:

Sounds so good! Everything!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:40pm Rich in Washington:

Fripp did this crazy thing called Slow Music Project here several years ago. Sort of an electric chamber music thing, with really sparse playing, all improvised. Peter Buck from REM, Hector Zazou, William Reifling from Ministry, The Blackouts
Avatar 4:40pm Otis Fodder:

I read a bit about Tool joking on a tour with Crimson saying to the effect that, hey don't tell those guys we ripped off King Crimson (to King Crimson). Ha, fun. They influenced so many. Those first KC albums + the McDonald Gilles LP are favs.
  4:40pm Martinibomb:

Oh wow!!! @Mailman would have been great to see in the day
Avatar 4:44pm Linda Lee:

wow ... loving these tracks!

  4:46pm Martinibomb:

Thanks @Linda ;-) having fun running around pulling silly stuff
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:48pm Rich in Washington:

The REZ!
Avatar 4:48pm Linda Lee:

what the world needs now, MB. :-D
  4:54pm Martinibomb:

Damn this is a cool mix today
  4:54pm Dave In St Albans UK:

Hi Medium Cool people! I missed Stereolab. Oh well everything else is good too.... as usual MB.
Avatar 4:56pm Otis Fodder:

Fav Todd Track there.
Avatar 4:57pm Mr Fab:

Yeah, this has been real cool. Not just set to 'medium.'
  4:58pm Martinibomb:

My fave todd as well
Avatar 4:58pm Mr Fab:

Hi Mailman Tom. Haven't actually seen the film "Medium Cool." Have you, Martinibomb?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:58pm Rich in Washington:

speaking of Fripp!
Avatar 4:59pm Mr Fab:

The Nazz nugget "Open My Eyes" will probably always be my fave Todd, but that was maximum cool.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:01pm Rich in Washington:

My fondness for Rundgren has grown these last few years. I can now see what all the fuss is about.
  5:01pm Martinibomb:

yup! Love the Roaches those harmonies are pretty killer
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:02pm Rich in Washington:

Fripp was actually on Saturday Night Live, playing with The Roches, but hidden in the background.
  5:02pm Martinibomb:

Anyone remember that Todd Rundgren Amiga CG/3D music video from like.. 1990ish?
Avatar 5:04pm Mr Fab:

Love the Fripp solos in the Roches track. Similar to his "Heroes" and Eno's "St Elmos Fire" leads. Wish he'd done more like that.
Avatar 5:06pm Mr Fab:

I think this was sampled for Little Fluffy Clouds. Wonder if Reich saw any scratch from that..
  5:06pm Dave In St Albans UK:

Hi Martinibomb. Now I am in minimalist heaven. Steve Reich is my go to desert island composer. Saw this live with Pat Metheny and Kronos Quartet.
  5:09pm Martinibomb:

@Dave I like that stuff too. that's why yer listening cause we like the same stuff hah
Avatar 5:09pm Otis Fodder:

@Fab - Those first 2 Nazz albums are super favs. My vinyl copies are beat down, but sound so good on vinyl.
Avatar 5:10pm Otis Fodder:

My 2nd fav Prince album here, Sign of the Times. Usually that's a lot of folks 1st favs.. but Parade is the one that is at the top for me. Dirty Mind 3rd. As of now, always shifts/changes.
  5:16pm Martinibomb:

I never got to see Prince live. Def a life regret for sure
Avatar 5:17pm Otis Fodder:

You and I both. Came to Montreal twice as well and both times I was like, oh tix are a bit pricey. Should have gone. We have the music though, oh yes!
  5:18pm Martinibomb:

It's my own fault as well.. should a coulda woulda
  5:21pm Martinibomb:

this pepe deluxe track is so insane
Avatar 5:26pm Otis Fodder:

Thanks MB, gotta run. Stay cool buddy! Gonna get some of that 'sunshine'.
  5:28pm Martinibomb:

Avatar 5:41pm geezerette:

This show is so damn elegant, MB.
  5:43pm Martinibomb:

ah thanks Geez glad you're diggin' the vibe today
Avatar 5:43pm geezerette:

very much!

Hi Martinibomb and mediums! Kenzo's show is on in the other room, got multi-layer cool going on..
  6:18pm Martinibomb:

Hullo Chresti! I love Kenzo's show it's soooooo good
