Hi kitten and king of glam! Ready to get wired up..
Avatar 2:58pm Mr Fab:

Ladies, gentlemen, and miscellaneous! Sheena’s Jungle Room is totally wired to present a new show, and our first-ever Saturday’s series: WIRED UP! Let’s hear it for...Kitten Sparkles and the King of Glam!

Hi

I CAN’T HEAR YOOOOU!!!

Hi Kitten Sparkles!

And we're off!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:00pm Rich in Washington:

Hi Mr. Fab!
Avatar 3:01pm Mr Fab:

Along the way, I hope to find out what “bonehead” is...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:09pm chresti:

Hi Mr. Fab, huh, not sure what bonehead music is.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:10pm chresti:

This sounds like bubble glam, maybe.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:10pm Jan Turkenburg:

Hi Chresti and Mr. Fab. Hi everyone I just was on the zoom meeting wit :-) :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:11pm chresti:

Hi Jan!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:11pm Jan Turkenburg:

I'm going to listen to the show off screen now. I like what I'm hearing!
Avatar 3:13pm spacebrother:

Launch is successful.
Avatar 3:16pm Don-O:

UT! My internet kicked me off the Zoom meeting, but I'm still here. That's something.....I guess.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:17pm Jan Turkenburg:

ah what the heck, I'll hang around here a bit longer :-) Hi Greg and Don!
Avatar 3:22pm Don-O:

Hey, Jan.....

I am so excited for this show! Junk shop Glam is one of my favorite genres!
Avatar 3:25pm Franco Twinkie:

Platform shoes from the Sears Put On Shoppe?
Avatar 3:29pm Mr Fab:

Heck yeah Franco, and some striped bell-bottoms.
Avatar 3:30pm Franco Twinkie:

Mr. Fab, You remember!
Avatar 3:35pm Mr Fab:

I might have had some striped flares when i was, like, 8. Mom might have got some at JCPenney.
Avatar 3:36pm Franco Twinkie:

Or Jeans West?

Hey Jan!
Avatar 3:36pm spacebrother:

and Fab, and Don-O, and Chresti, and Rich!
Avatar 3:37pm Mr Fab:

Hi, all!
Don't think Noah, the King of Glam is here this week, but he will be tag-teaming with Don Sparkles in the futuristic future.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:37pm chresti:

Hi spacebrother!
Avatar 3:37pm Franco Twinkie:

Spacebrother! By any chance do you have any pictures from that party at your house in Topanga Canyon?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39pm chresti:

Mod Bubbleglam, Yellow Taxi
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40pm chresti:

...or whatever was on before what's playing now?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:42pm chresti:

Not sure if the playlist is refreshing..
Avatar 3:46pm Mr Fab:

Don’s dealing with juggling 45s, so he might fall a bit behind on the playlisting. And he’s still pretty new to the woof-moo way of things. Not easy to simultaneously spin, speak, chat, and update. Bit of a learning curve.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:48pm chresti:

Oh yeah, with 45s not much time for chitchat.
Avatar 3:49pm solo mon:

Hey hay Chresti and Fab! Sounds good kitten don!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:49pm chresti:

Hammered Satin says it all, hi solo!
Avatar 3:52pm solo mon:

Good thing to have a little Saturday action on sheenas
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:52pm Rich in Washington:

Yep. Rock n' roll 45s will keep you hopping just DJing alone. Playlisting thusly is like chainsaw juggling on a unicycle.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:54pm chresti:

Hi Rich, I can imagine..
Avatar 3:54pm Mr Fab:

Li’l Fab turned up the speaker and is dancing around the kitchen.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:56pm Rich in Washington:

This is wonderful! Sure diggin' this Saturday treat!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:04pm chresti:

It's great to see more west coast djs on wfmu, I love it. I like to tune in to Glossololia, on KXLU
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:07pm chresti:

^with Don Boles and Mitchell Brown, haven't listened in awhile.
Avatar 4:07pm Mr Fab:

Exactly, chresti. Don’s Tuesday show, the Fantastic World of Kitten Sparkles, is basically a Glossololia-type show, only now thanks to WFMU’s awesome archving, the shows will be preserved, not vanishing into the ether, as most of Don’s KXLU shows have done.
Avatar 4:08pm spacebrother:

@Franco - I Haven't seen any, but if I find any, I'll shout.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:09pm chresti:

I love that, Mr. Fab, the archives, playlists..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:09pm zivilars:

Wow, a new Sheena live show on Saturday – weekends make finally sense now!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:10pm zivilars:

the whole archives and playlist system on WFMU is SO great, I agree
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:10pm zivilars:

hope everybody has a great weekend
Avatar 4:10pm Franco Twinkie:

Greg, what was the date of your party,and what were you wearing the time you came over to Chrestis house?
Avatar 4:10pm Mr Fab:

Well, KXLU is on a university campus, so it’s shut down. Would love to get KXLU djs here, such a wealth of talent. But the tech thing is a turn-off to them. So far, only Kitten Bolles has successfully wrestled with the home-studio dilemma
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:11pm chresti:

Thanks zivilars, you too!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:12pm chresti:

Brave Kitten!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:13pm chresti:

..and the live comments, Fab, I am hooked!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:16pm chresti:

Haha Dump.
Avatar 4:16pm Mr Fab:

It really is such a great system. When I thought of this channel, I had two ideas on who should host it - 1) WFMU, and 2) someplace else
Avatar 4:17pm Franco Twinkie:

Don is leading the charge into the dystopian 21st century meltdown. Those folks who like to go into a real radio station better wake up and smell the coffee, or get a job selling oranges on a traffic island.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:18pm zivilars:

Mr Fab: A huge thank you in general for this fantastic station – IMO it's the best one of all WFMU streams (main one included) and that also includes the community on the message board here
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:18pm zivilars:

totally different and much more personal than on main WFMU
Avatar 4:20pm Martinibomb:

Gee Wiz @Ziv that means a lot to us! Thanks
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:22pm zivilars:

@Martinibomb: It's simply the truth – on main "big" WFMU it's more like everybody posts something on the message board, but no real conversations (to put it a bit exaggerated)
Avatar 4:22pm Mr Fab:

Yeah, Thanks so much for that, that makes my day. Mission accomplished!
Avatar 4:23pm spacebrother:

@ franco - When did I go to Chresti's house? I can't remember the date of the party. I may have an old invite with the date, but not the year.
Avatar 4:23pm spacebrother:

Gotta go to the store. Laters, everyone!
Avatar 4:25pm Mr Fab:

Buy some records, spacebrother!
Avatar 4:25pm Franco Twinkie:

Saturday October 27th 1990. Some how real tickets got printed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:25pm Rich in Washington:

Thanks zivilars! That's nice to hear!
Thanks Mr. Fab for steering this crazy ship!
We're blessed with some wonderful listeners and commenters.
Avatar 4:26pm BC Sterrett:

I'm here :)
Avatar 4:27pm Mr Fab:

BC! I toss glitter in the air to announce your arrival.
Avatar 4:27pm BC Sterrett:

Excited about the new show :)
Avatar 4:28pm solo mon:

I just stopped by to say I love it here too! Cozy and interesting at sheenas.
  4:31pm ?:

@ Franco - oh the Space Club party!
Avatar 4:31pm Franco Twinkie:

YES!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:32pm ARB:

This was the theme song of my first radio show!
Avatar 4:33pm Franco Twinkie:

Witchy woman!
  4:34pm Spacebrother:

I was dressed as Whitley Strieber
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:34pm chresti:

I think the impersonal aspect happens when there's a higher volume of comments, the streams are like the specialty shoppes, where the main stream is a supermarket?
Avatar 4:35pm Franco Twinkie:

Greg, I have a ton of pictures, but I need to see more.
Avatar 4:35pm Mr Fab:

Is this Glitter without Gary?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:36pm ARB:

DUMP is a perfect band name
Avatar 4:36pm Franco Twinkie:

Was Gary already in jail by then?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:36pm chresti:

Hi ARB, which song was your first theme song?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:37pm zivilars:

@chresti: That's what I think, too – it's a smaller group of regulars here than on main WFMU with a musical taste even more "specialised"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:38pm chresti:

Ladies and Gentlemen...Dump!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:39pm ARB:

hi Chresti! the A Raincoat song, I first heard it on the second Rabbit Moon soundtrack
  4:39pm Spacebrother:

@ Franco - I’d like to see them.
Avatar 4:41pm Franco Twinkie:

Greg, we'll figure something out.
Avatar 4:41pm BC Sterrett:

I like Don's voice
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:42pm zivilars:

such a great song, always at any time
Avatar 4:44pm Franco Twinkie:

This song is kind of lame, but at that time we had two Chevrolets, and we use to go to the beach a lot, so I guess it's true.
Avatar 4:46pm BC Sterrett:

For some reason this is my first time hearing it. My wife is singing along. I like it.
Avatar 4:46pm BC Sterrett:

She is from California though...
Avatar 4:46pm Martinibomb:

@ziv & chresti what you might not know is many of the sheena djs have been friends for a long time - we're a friendly bunch behind the scenes and that extends to the chat room.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:47pm chresti:

I can tell, MB.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:48pm zivilars:

@MB: That totally makes sense and really transfers to the chat
Avatar 4:48pm BC Sterrett:

So happy to be part of the Sheena family. I'm a fan of all of you and that includes the listeners!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:49pm chresti:

Likewise, BC!
Avatar 4:53pm Franco Twinkie:

I guess a lot of this stuff got played at Rodneys or Club E? I remember the sign outside, but never went in.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:53pm chresti:

There's a similar camaraderie on the drummer stream.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:55pm zivilars:

That was a fantastic show - thanks, Don!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:55pm ARB:

Thanks for Glee-jaying!
Avatar 4:56pm BC Sterrett:

Thank you Kitten Sparkles!
Avatar 4:56pm Martinibomb:

I've known, Otis, Georgy, Solo, Ursula, Jan for a good 20yrs - and most of the other DJs I've heard about thru them for a long time. :-)
Avatar 4:57pm Martinibomb:

Wait is this the end already? this music makes time go super fast. Thanks KS!
Avatar 4:57pm Mr Fab:

Franco, i asked Don that very question. He said that Rodney and co. played some of this, but most was too obcsure/not imported to the US
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:57pm chresti:

Thanks Don, spectacular new show!
Avatar 4:58pm BC Sterrett:

I've known Otis since the 90's and I've known Jan through email for a long time as well :) But I've known about Don-O, Mr. Fab and Martini through various projects.
Avatar 4:58pm Mr Fab:

Smashing debut, sir!
Avatar 5:01pm Franco Twinkie:

Thanks Don. This was way better going outside and doing yard work.
Avatar 5:02pm BC Sterrett:

I have to go out and do house work after this. Blahhh
Avatar 5:02pm Martinibomb:

That's what I'm doing BC
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:03pm chresti:

I learned about Otis in the 2000s listening to Shirley&Spinoza internet radio.
Franco doesn't do yard work.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:03pm zivilars:

too sad that it is "only" automatic Sheena now again ... Need even more live shows on weekends!
Avatar 5:03pm BC Sterrett:

oh no, It's Potty Time!
Avatar 5:04pm Martinibomb:

@ziv you wanna become a DJ?
Avatar 5:04pm Franco Twinkie:

Shhh!
  5:04pm Spacebrother:

Nice stuff!!
Avatar 5:04pm Mr Fab:

There are plenty of DJs i want to add. Takes a bit of doing to get that happenin, tho
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:04pm zivilars:

@MB: Unfortunately, I'm not a native speaker and too introverted on camera / microphone to become a DJ so I keep on listening :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:05pm zivilars:

but I hope that you will get even more great new DJs! This new show today was fantastic!
Avatar 5:05pm Martinibomb:

^this type of person makes the BEST DJ!
Avatar 5:05pm Franco Twinkie:

And don't eat so much bread for Christ sakes!
Avatar 5:05pm BC Sterrett:

You can do computer voice like I do Ziv. I hate the sound of my own voice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:06pm zivilars:

@BC Sterrett: Ha, that's a nice trick! Maybe someday in the future I'll feel ready for it ;)
Avatar 5:06pm Martinibomb:

@ziv like we all totally get it. But ya know.. think about it. I'm a super introvert just ask anybody who knows me heheh
Avatar 5:06pm Mr Fab:

I’ve known Otis, Spacebrother, Don-O and Rich for years, and Darryl of WorldsWorstRecords from his blog for a few years. So getting the first lineup together went pretty quickly
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:07pm zivilars:

@MB: Doesn't feel like it when you're talking on the air though – you're hiding it well :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:07pm chresti:

I am too, ziv, ask Franco.
Avatar 5:08pm Martinibomb:

@ziv you could just play records and not talk.. whatever works for you
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:08pm ARB:

I'm also a complete introvert, bedroom microphone is the most I can muster
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:08pm zivilars:

@MB: Still remember when I first listened to your show not too long ago and you played your niece singing "Beat It" ... Believe it or not, I STILL search for it in the archives when I need to be cheered up. This recording is simply adorable.
Avatar 5:08pm Martinibomb:

Let me say I totally get the Mic thing. I come from more of a club Dj thing and it was the HARD for me. I still struggle but.. it's all good. It gets better and more fun. The Mic is like an instrument.
Avatar 5:09pm BC Sterrett:

I'd rather fill time with records than talk, but that's me.
Avatar 5:09pm Mr Fab:

I have a queue of like 5 DJs i want to get set up here! One at A time, slowly, slowly...
Avatar 5:10pm Franco Twinkie:

Yes she is. And I'm just the opposite. My sister tells me I've got to dial it back to five if I expect people to want to talk to me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:10pm zivilars:

@Mr Fab: Sounds promising – looking forward to it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:10pm ARB:

I hated talking at first and also cringe at the sound of my own voice but it gets easier and easier and if you're live you don't have to listen to your own voice
Avatar 5:10pm Martinibomb:

@ziv thanks I'll send that comment a long to her - she got to that age where she's embarrassed to do stuff...
Avatar 5:11pm Kitten Sparkles:

Thank you guys fo rcommenting nd stuff!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:11pm Rich in Washington:

I have this commercial on a Feederz album. I think it's from KDIL.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:12pm Rich in Washington:

hey, Kitten Sparkles! Show sounds fantastic!
Avatar 5:12pm Martinibomb:

@Fab sorry I'm trying to recruit new DJs hahah Ziv seems like a good potential to me
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:13pm ARB:

Ziv, what's your native tongue?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:13pm zivilars:

@MB: Haha, I'll definitely keep on listening for now, but I feel honored :)
Avatar 5:14pm BC Sterrett:

Mr. Fab, I may have Michael Brunelle, a private press record DJ who lost his radio station due to covid, record a segment for the first 15 or 30 minutes of my Friday shift so I can finish my online class. Would that be alright? He is also the actor who played Frankenstein and wrote the screenplay for the movie "Frankenstein's Planet of Monsters."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:14pm chresti:

No prob, kitten, I can't imagine trying to chat while juggling 45s. Sounded great!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:14pm Rich in Washington:

I'd love to poach lots of DJs from my soon-to-be former station but many of them don't have the studio setup, space, or know-how to stream from home.
Avatar 5:14pm Martinibomb:

@ziv maybe try recording a show just for fun - let me know if you need help
Avatar 5:14pm Franco Twinkie:

That's me! I would always break something after listening to the acid rock music.
Avatar 5:15pm Martinibomb:

@don this is great! I fucking luv DEvo - I read Mark is getting over Covid and had to go to ICU??? I hope it's just a rumor and it's totally kewl
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:16pm zivilars:

@ARB: I'm from Germany – and our English isn't as good as for examples Jan's because unlike in the Netherlands, English movies and TV shows dubbed to German here
Avatar 5:16pm Mr Fab:

Devo bootlegs!! Lovin the afterparty, Don
Avatar 5:16pm BC Sterrett:

I met Devo once. Really nice guys
Avatar 5:16pm Kitten Sparkles:

Am I still on? Cuz I'm playing a really cool live Devo show I recorded on 1977 at the Mabuhat Gardens in SF
Avatar 5:16pm Franco Twinkie:

Where is this from?
Avatar 5:17pm Martinibomb:

@ziv do your show in german. That's not a problem.
Avatar 5:17pm BC Sterrett:

You're still on Kitten :)
Avatar 5:18pm Kitten Sparkles:

Yeah, 2 hours flies by w the Glam and Bubblegum singles...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:18pm zivilars:

@MB: Haha – no way, German sounds much too harsh to your ears. You would think I am insulting you the whole time :)
Avatar 5:18pm Franco Twinkie:

Yes okay, I saw them in 1977 with The Weirdos and Blondie.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:18pm chresti:

It's great, thanks! Love raw DEVO.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:18pm ARB:

Ziv-Your grammar in the chat room doesn't betray that you aren't a native speaker! But also maybe you can announce in German or a mix? Tropicaza did a 3 hour show yesterday in English which is his third language, he's fluent but doesn't have perfect grammar at all
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:19pm zivilars:

Steve Carell has a nice number about that: "German who says nice things"
Avatar 5:19pm Martinibomb:

@Ziv English has a lot of german sounding stuff it aint so great
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:19pm ARB:

English is a Germanic language
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:19pm ARB:

American English is quite harsh
Avatar 5:20pm Kitten Sparkles:

One of the first things I did o todays show was trip over my phone charging cable, which made it useless, so my phone has been dead this whole time.
Avatar 5:20pm Franco Twinkie:

I worked for Jerry Casale a couple of times. He was not very Devo in regular life.
Avatar 5:21pm BC Sterrett:

Jerry was nice enough to say a few words for my Wildman Fischer memorial...

Avatar 5:23pm Franco Twinkie:

That's a great way to start any conversation Don, "...I had a lot of LSD." Works for me every time!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:24pm zivilars:

@Kitten Sparkles: Did you record this show through the soundboard? This isn't an audience recording, is it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:24pm chresti:

I saw DEVO in 77, at the Starwood, can't remember if it was the Eyes that played with them, or the Dickies.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:24pm Rich in Washington:

Was that really you, Kitten?
Has this show ever been released as a bootleg? I think I have a repro flyer for this show.
Avatar 5:25pm Kitten Sparkles:

Thru the sound board w my Dokorder 4 track
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:25pm zivilars:

this is a damn fine bootleg
Avatar 5:25pm Kitten Sparkles:

I hung out w Devo all day and asked if it was OK. They said yeah, so...
Avatar 5:26pm Franco Twinkie:

I saw them at the Starwood too! Spazz Attack opened the show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:26pm chresti:

cool!
Avatar 5:26pm Kitten Sparkles:

There were two nights. This was the first one. The second night was on a boot called Live Work Force.
Avatar 5:27pm Franco Twinkie:

I have that boot!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:27pm zivilars:

I should have recorded this – will try to get my hands on the second night though, hope the quality is as good
  5:28pm Spacebrother:

Saw them in 1977 the first time and a couple of years ago for the Hardcore tour, which was a spiritual experience.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:29pm ARB:

I'm new here, who's Devo? I wasn't born then.

...and 10 times or so in between.

When were you born ARB?

Uncontrollable Urge, the highlight of Devo live, with them all lined up shoulder to shoulder, kick-stepping in time, like robot Rockettes.
Avatar 5:31pm Franco Twinkie:

Devo was the best. When everyone else was trying to figure out what the hell this new thing called 'punk' was, they just came into town and smashed everything to pieces. Out front and kicking ass in a major way, they did.

My high school new wave band covered “Mongoloid.” Wowed them catholic achoold kiddies at the annual talent show. (Tho it was our cover of Trio’s “Da Da Da” that got em dancin)

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:34pm ARB:

Mr Fab, my high school band covered Mongoloid also
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:35pm ARB:

I mean the hardcore band I was in during those years, not the official high school band

I still have my copy on Boogie Boy with the swim mask and snorkle fold out.

No way! I was on Casio keyboards. What was your ax?

I got sent to the principal in 6th grade for telling the teacher I only listen to devo, not teachers.

Avatar 5:40pm Franco Twinkie:

What kind,solo?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:40pm ARB:

I'm a watermelonhead
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:41pm zivilars:

I wonder if Kenzo will be kind enough to still include this Devo live set to the archive of the show ...?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:41pm chresti:

I'm a raspberry fanatic
Avatar 5:41pm solo mon:

Aw ya know there’s two kinds and I can’t remember what names they r
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:41pm zivilars:

probably not, but would be great
Avatar 5:41pm Kitten Sparkles:

I found out about DEVO when I went to visit the Residents, whose studio was really close tto where i was living in SF. That was an incredible day for young nerd me..Meeting (and getting really stoned with the Residents, who played me the song they had just mixed on the big studio speakers. Satisfaction!!!! The set for Vileness - w the atomic shopping carts) was downstairs from the control room. On my way out I was really stond but managed to ask the main guy if he knew of anything good coming to SF soon. He said, yeh, this new band called Tyhe Deevolutio Band, who do films and dress up and are prett cool" And he gave me a press kit they sent him and one of the 2 copies of Jocko homo/ Mongoloid, whih was all they had out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:41pm Otis Fodder:

3 types of plums Franco, sorta greenish, sorta pinkish, much reddish.
Avatar 5:42pm solo mon:

Water melons is my passion too ARB but they are so disappoint ing some times. I have to hold back.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:42pm Otis Fodder:

We are doing rice and soy tofu marinated buffalo style bites with mushrooms and tomatoes all mixed up for supper... plus have chocolate and vanilla ice cream from a local tiny shop for dessert.
Avatar 5:43pm Franco Twinkie:

I bought a bunch of Dapple Dandies last Sunday, and they are hands down the best I've had all Summer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:43pm Rich in Washington:

Oh wow, Kitten. Is that Pre-Minna Street studio days?
You must know dAs, who was their Ralph Records shipping guy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:43pm ARB:

I had a swirly watermelon once, it defied logic. but usually the bad ones are still good if you blend them up
Avatar 5:43pm Martinibomb:

My friend Brian is a good friend of the band and has worked for them on/off over the years. Mark took him to see Tiffany and said, you'll thank me for this.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:43pm Otis Fodder:

Not many veggies or fruits I don't eat. Both Sondy and I will pass on the Brusselllll sprouts, more for you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:44pm Rich in Washington:

I just picked a ton o' plums on my walk at work this week. They're ripening in a bowl on my kitchen counter.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:45pm chresti:

Wow, getting stoned with the Residents...
Avatar 5:45pm Franco Twinkie:

I only eat plums that are red or purple on the inside. I don't like yellow plums.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:45pm zivilars:

such a powerful show, must have been awesome to be there
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:45pm ARB:

Yes more for me! I like all vegetables, only one fruit I won't touch
Avatar 5:46pm Franco Twinkie:

Super ass kickers, these guys!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:46pm ARB:

And I believe that ketchup is for revenge, not consumption
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:47pm Otis Fodder:

Save those yellow plums for me Franco.
Avatar 5:48pm Franco Twinkie:

By the time the yellows dominate, I only eat peaches.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:49pm chresti:

My favorite plums are the santa rosa plums, the lighter shade of red ones, smaller the better.
Avatar 5:49pm Kitten Sparkles:

Yup. Beyond. That was a killer couple of months for music me. Met the Residents, saw Devo, and like a month something previous sawe the Screamers first actual venue show, at the Stqrwood, w David Brown on keyboards. the original guy!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:49pm ARB:

I go bananas for lychees
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:50pm Otis Fodder:

Oh peaches, Sondy is all about the soft peaches.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:51pm chresti:

Oh yeah, Otis, the Screamers, I met David around the time he joined the Eyes.
Avatar 5:52pm Franco Twinkie:

There is a tree in San Francisco right around the corner from where Chresties son lives. Last Summer, we got there to late and they were all on the sidewalk! I said to myself - Never again!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:54pm Rich in Washington:

We had two yellow plum trees but a bear broke all the limbs off one of them trying to get those sweet ripe plums and they killed it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:55pm zivilars:

I'm kicking myself that I didn't record this gem from the beginning ... Please let Kenzo not recognise that the "official" show was already over and keeping this live set in the archives, too
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:56pm Rich in Washington:

This is wonderful! I've been on a real Devo binge lately.
Avatar 5:56pm Martinibomb:

my entire life is a Devo binge.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:57pm chresti:

Maybe you could send Kenzo a message via his link at the bottom of this page, ziv.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:58pm zivilars:

@chresti: The show will probably automatically be archived with its original two hour length when the playlist ends, but it's worth a try nevertheless, yes
Avatar 5:58pm Franco Twinkie:

This has been a crap load of fun, but I need to get the fuck out of here. Thanks again Don, you host a good day care rumpus-room party.
Avatar 5:59pm Mr Fab:

When i saw Devo at the Universal Ampitheater, Mark M disappeared from the stage during Jocko Homo, then: hey, look! Here he came repelling down the back balcony, cordless mic in hand. He then went thru the crowd, getting audience members doing the D-e-v-o chant. Now THAT is a show.
Avatar 5:59pm Martinibomb:

hahah Cya DON!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:59pm Rich in Washington:

I only ever got to meet Devo at one of those Tower Records autograph things. I had Mark sign my ticket stub from my first ever Devo show and he looked at it real close and said he didn't remember that show.
This was after Alan quit and the drummer from Sparks/Gleaming Spires joined.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:59pm zivilars:

oh shit ... that was loud!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:00pm chresti:

Thanks for the awesome after party, Don!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:00pm Rich in Washington:

Thanks, Don/Kitten!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:00pm zivilars:

The only thing Don can still work on is the volume level of his voice ... otherwise, this show was perfect!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:00pm Rich in Washington:

Sheena's always in the RED!
Avatar 6:02pm Mr Fab:

Wonder if that Devo show can be a Marathon premium..?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:02pm zivilars:

Mr Fab: If the show becomes a marathon premium, count me in IMMEDIATELY

I'm getting a foam pop filter for the mic, and trying to figure out the compressor limiter.
