@GG speaking of the universe I have to say this adopted dog we just got the universe was defiantly speaking to me - I'll have to tell you about it. hard to explain but I was like.. what is going on?

@LL - I think it's hilarious that this is the accepted "jungle noise" ;-)

In Hawaii you can hear real life tropical bird calls, like on ezorica records.

@MB - I have moments where I actively open up to the universe. Put myself over to it. And the most extraordinary things happen. Good things. :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:25pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Mr Fab - I would love to go to Hawaii :-)
Avatar 5:27pm Mr Fab:

"exotica" records, meant to say, ha ha. Supposedly, hearing the birds tweating in the background inspired their use.
Denny or Lyman said that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:27pm Linda Lee:

Yma!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:30pm Linda Lee:

love the Joe Loco, though. delicious.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:31pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Mr Fab - I'd heard it ages ago, so I watched about five different videos and they all said slightly different things, so I put in the caveat "so I've heard" because I couldn't figure out what was what ;-)
Avatar 5:31pm Martinibomb:

I'm not familiar with Joe Loco
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:31pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Yma is a goddess tho - that's a fact :-)
Avatar 5:32pm Martinibomb:

It think we need to do a SHeena's Jungle Room Live From Hawaii. Maybe WFMU can get it in their budget for next year? Lol

Speaking of Martin Denny ... ;-)

I do love the Denny Moog album too :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:34pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Didn't Les Baxter do one as well? I'm sure I've got that on my hard drive somewhere.
Avatar 5:35pm Martinibomb:

Hilariously enough I was at the Pot store down the street and this old guy started chatting with me about my WFMU shirt and it turned out he was the guy I bought that Martini Moog record from back in the 90s he had a store in SF I used to go to.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:35pm Linda Lee:

what I've heard of the Moog record is really lovely.
Avatar 5:35pm Martinibomb:

Yeh baxter did Moog Rock

@MB - that's wild. What are the odds of bumping in to someone like that? :-)

Moog Rock! That's the one!

@GG Hawaii is West of ORegon/California between us and Japan.

@LL - that explains why the Brady Bunch go there. Got it :-)

Right, how he couldn't get work as an African American, so used the American interest in exoticism to get work as an Asian "Indian"

It's just slightly north of the equator

The Korla Pandit movie is well worth your while, if you can find it.

It's about 3hr flight from Portland.

My bar is under 12 steps away from the office desk. Spiced or Cuban Rum? I'll pull out both bottles.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:43pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I guess that explains the Hawaiian weather as well. makes sense.

Avatar 5:45pm Martinibomb:

^ Hah Lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:45pm Rich in Washington:

The Korla Pandit show aired on Portland TV back in the day. I remember my mom once waxing nostalgic about early, often live, TV and she described his show, although couldn't recall his name. Just some guy in a turban playing the organ and making eyes at all the housewives watching it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:45pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hi Rich! Gorgeous pictures of your new grandbaby! <3

Aw,thanks everybody! I think I was born to be an old coot grandpa.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:47pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

This poor lady appears to have some kind of stomach complaint ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:48pm Linda Lee:

I've never heard of Bas Sheva! clearly twitching into Yma's footsteps.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:48pm Rich in Washington:

I was thinking the same thing, GeorgyGirl! Although I love that record.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:49pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Why is there an Irish bird in the Enchanted Tiki Room???? lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:49pm Otis Fodder:

I love that album, Bas Shiva's The Passions - produced by Les Baxter! Leda Annest is the third point on the triangle with Yma rotating above my head in the heavens.
Avatar 5:50pm Mr Fab:

The Passions" - one of the albums i display on a shelf in my office. A 10" boxed set.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:50pm Linda Lee:

that was pretty darn fabulous
Avatar 5:50pm Martinibomb:

I'm going to use that AI deepfake shit to have Yma do Bas and vice a versa
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:50pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Does anyone remember the photo when Lounge Laura meet Yma Sumac? I've never seen anyone look so happy :-)

  5:52pm CC:

I think I've heard some of these songs on the old Ernie Kovacs show or maybe Benny Hill!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:52pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Laura goes back to 90s Exotica days - DJ, singer, huge presence on the Loungecore scene :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:52pm Otis Fodder:

I would love to see that photo, I can picture her meeting Yma... she's been programming some killer radio for decades down south.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:52pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@CC - probably Benny Hill ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:52pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Otis - she was THRILLED :-)
Avatar 5:53pm Mr Fab:

I met Korla Pandit when he used to play around town in the 90s. He had us all fooled.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:53pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Mr Fab - Wow!!! I'm impressed! Was he a nice chap?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:53pm Otis Fodder:

Still going to thrift stores and record fairs. ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:53pm Linda Lee:

we started picking up on thrift shop exotica in the mid 80s. it was everywhere thrifting. the visuals!!
Avatar 5:53pm Martinibomb:

^ fucking awesome Fab!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:54pm Otis Fodder:

LL - Me too, started in 1986 in High School. Still remember the Salvation Army I would hit in San Diego.
Avatar 5:54pm Martinibomb:

A friend of mine had a surf band in the 90s called Galaxy Trio and they specifically ripped of Korla's look and would perform like that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:55pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I met some dudes back in the 90s called Otis and MB and Jan. Not sure what they're up to now ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:55pm Linda Lee:

oh yes. it was lovely.
Avatar 5:55pm Mr Fab:

Yeah, Ernie Kovaks used to use Esquivel in his sketches. And he had Yma Sumac and prepared-piano era Ferrante and Teischer as guests.
Avatar 5:55pm Martinibomb:

Yep it's true I know GG from trading illegal mp3s Lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:55pm Linda Lee:

how were you fooled, Mr F?
Avatar 5:56pm Martinibomb:

Gawd I LOVE earnie Kovaks! That show is super good
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:56pm Otis Fodder:

And it actually started for me thanks to Throbbing Gristle thanking Martin Denny on Greatest Hits... I put 2 and 2 together in high school and that was one of my first exotica sparks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:56pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@MB - ;-)
Avatar 5:57pm Mr Fab:

"Korla" was very nice and sweet, softly speaking to me in his fake but convincing Indian accent.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:57pm Otis Fodder:

Those Kovac shows are killer. Has anyone seen the 1980s bio-doc on Kovacs starring Jeff Goldblum as Ernie. So good.
Avatar 5:57pm Martinibomb:

who knew we'd all be DJn together 20yrs later insane thanks Universe!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:57pm Linda Lee:

I'm having trouble remembering the name of the band who did the Nairobi Trio song 'Solfeggio'
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:57pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Mr Fab - I'm glad he was nice :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:57pm Linda Lee:

wow, he kept it up! amazing!
  5:57pm Rob:

I love Billy May and this is from one of my fave musicals. He arranged some great Sinatra lps
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:57pm Rich in Washington:

I pretty much buy any Yma Sumac record I run across, even if I already have it, but once bought a LP version of Xtabay and was delighted to find a libretto/program from a live performance by her inside.
But when I looked more closely, it was Emcee'd by Penn Gillette! It was from the 80s. Oh well, it's still cool!
Avatar 5:58pm Mr Fab:

Spacebrother Greg may have been at that show Rich!

Martinibomb and I were attempting to bring one of our fellow Portland DJs over to the dark side and Sheena's Jungle Room - a guy who did a tiki/lounge/exotica show here in Portland for the last couple of decades. He jumped ship on his station and is doing who knows what now.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:24pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Never read it - only seen the film. I should do that!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:25pm Linda Lee:

I'll bet most people bought it for display purposes. :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:25pm Otis Fodder:

Read Kon-Tiki in the late 90s, paperback. Need to read it again to refresh but enjoyed it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:26pm Linda Lee:

.. sort of like "the Joy of Sex"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:26pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I'm wondering if the biopic is any good?

My grandfather was on the aircraft carrier The Wasp..luckily he didn't eat breakfast the morning that it was bombed...

Otis - it's you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:26pm Otis Fodder:

This guys a freak.
Avatar 6:27pm Mr Fab:

That version of Magnificent 7 was funny. It's like, what's the most unlikely song we can turn into a chacha?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:27pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Nope - my parents' copy of "Joy Of Sex" was definitely not a display copy. <shudder>
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:27pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Mr Fab - exactly! I think that's why I love it so much. It's just so ... random :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:29pm Otis Fodder:

Reading Kon-Tiki was a passage, slightly akin to Tropic of Cancer or Junkie & Naked Lunch. The books to dig into.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:30pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Wow - Tropic of Cancer. My parents' slightly more sophisticated friends had a copy of that. ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:30pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I remember seeing it and wondering what it was.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:31pm Linda Lee:

here's a beautiful 'Tunisia'!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:31pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I'm bopping again ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:33pm Otis Fodder:

Big fan of that Tino Contreras album, Percusiones Mexicanas. All killer, no filler.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:33pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

His cover of Brazil was fabulous
  6:35pm Dave in St Albans UK:

A copy of "Tropic ..." did the rounds in secondary school. The pages fell open at all of the best bits! :-) Kon Tiki and The Ra Expiditions were faves of mine and still sit on my Book shelves. PS Hi everyone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:35pm Linda Lee:

the gods have been angered by joy, so it rains. talk about screwy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:36pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hi Dave!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:36pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@LL - tons of rain here. Wish I could send it to Australia :-(
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:37pm Otis Fodder:

Hi Dave. Great recollection!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:37pm Linda Lee:

& now I hear about arrests for arson..?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:40pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Basically, no - I don't think it's racist. In a nutshell.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:40pm Linda Lee:

the thing about asking the question is, always, it has to be asked of the right people!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:40pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

i would ask some indigenous Polynesians what they think!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:41pm Linda Lee:

exactly!
  6:41pm CC:

A groovy beat that moves your soul is kinda Universal.??
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:41pm Linda Lee:

not for us to say really.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:41pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Granny - good point. What I was stumbling to say was that I think it comes from an admiring place. It's not meant to poke fun or incite hatred. Completely the opposite.
  6:42pm Rob:

People understandably have a problem with the word "exotic" I do not think that the music that is called Exotica is racist
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:43pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Rob - another excellent point.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:45pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

It's like my mum putting pineapple in the dish and calling it "Polynesian". It always was because she thought it was interesting and something different and enjoyable. It came from a good place.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:46pm Linda Lee:

I'm wondering how much cultural appropriation actually took place ~ or if exotica isn't more akin to jazz than anything else. you don't really say someone like Gerry Mulligan, say. is dong cultural appropriation..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:46pm Linda Lee:

it's just an evolving hybrid form.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:47pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@LL - I think that Exotica really is just such a mish-mash that it's a thing in and of itself in the end.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:47pm Linda Lee:

that's what I'm thinking too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:47pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Jesus - I just typed in the next record and it suggested "UK Disco Mix". When you see what it is ... lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:47pm Linda Lee:

& in another sense, all music is cultural appropriation.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:48pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

And *now* ... I have to find the "UK Disco Mix" ;-)
  6:48pm CC:

To try and emulate something that strikes you as far out and groovy is simply a compliment.. whether you make money off of it or not???
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:48pm Linda Lee:

.. but it's such a common language that the term loses meaning..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:49pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@CC - basically, yep. :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:49pm Linda Lee:

maybe it's really about acknowledgement.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:49pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

A friend of mine mentioned an article he'd read about whether or not Exotica was racist and I said "absolutely not", and I thought I'd put it out there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:50pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

THIS is the track that apparently has a disco mix ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:51pm Linda Lee:

Bali Hai?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:51pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Yep
Avatar 6:51pm Mr Fab:

Curse those black Americans for "appropriating" guitars from the Spanish to make blues, and British band instruments to create jazz! Buncha thieves, apparently!
Avatar 6:52pm Martinibomb:

great mix today really enjoyed it

Mr fab do you always sound so hip?
  7:09pm Aaron in Minneapolis:

Why are my comments being deleted?
  7:10pm Aaron in Minneapolis:

Happy to be here
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:42am Stanley:

Great show. Love Exotica and no, it's not racist. It could be presented in a racist way, demeaning the culture it drew on but by and large it isn't, unlike, for instance The Black and White Minstrel Show. It could be accused of being a bit expoitative but it shows respect to the source influences. As for 'cultural appropriation'? Yeah, we should all stick to our own cultures and not allow any others to be influenced by them. NEVER!
