"I can't tell when you're actually playing a 7" record."
- I am.

"How do I know anything you've told me is vinyl..."
- It is.
  Thu. 10/22/09 12:04pm GP:

Anyone else out there...Good afternoon Scott.
  Thu. 10/22/09 12:06pm Matt:

hey GP, I got the Rattles Scott. It is really good! Thanks again!!!
  Thu. 10/22/09 12:08pm GP:

This Komik-Kazee is awesome. I have never heard them before. I know, I live a sheltered life.

Reminds me of a punk B-52's act or something..I don't know.
  Thu. 10/22/09 12:08pm annie:

i like the music i can hear....
  Thu. 10/22/09 12:10pm dc pat:

  Thu. 10/22/09 12:10pm GP:

Streams should be up soon. I never lost the lo-fi 32K MP3 one.

I'm off for some lunch.
  Thu. 10/22/09 12:11pm Stuart Troutman:

Brazilian girls are better.
  Thu. 10/22/09 12:11pm Justin CollectorScum:

Komik-Kazee's even better if you see the picture sleeve:


I have some copies of the record available. Find me at the site above if anyone needs.
  Thu. 10/22/09 12:12pm Ike:

Is it my imagination or is Komik-Kazee doing fake British punk accents in that song? And yet they're singing about NJ.

AAC+ stream sounds good (generally better than 32k MP3) in Foobar. Works in Winamp too, Annie.
  Thu. 10/22/09 12:12pm dc pat:

WOW, they were totally rad looking
  Thu. 10/22/09 12:13pm Ike:

Awesomely rad photo!
  Thu. 10/22/09 12:15pm dc pat:

A TIE with a T-SHIRT!! NOW I've seen EVERYthing!!!
  Thu. 10/22/09 12:17pm Scott:

Hi yalllz!! Wont have much chance to chime in today, plan onlosing about 6 lbs too, but here's the deal on komik-Kazee -- yeah, of course the accents are fake, it was 1983. leader / songwriter Ken Schwartz moonlited as the drama teacher at my high school (or was it middle school?)
  Thu. 10/22/09 12:17pm Sue:

woo hoo! Residents!! haven't heard this in a long while. thank you!!
  Thu. 10/22/09 12:20pm annie:

hooray for our web-footed friends, for a duck may be somebody's mother!!! hooray for our friends in the swamp, for the weather is very very damp..
  Thu. 10/22/09 12:26pm steven:

just came over, so if Scott mentioned this already then apologies - Prince Rama had all their gear stolen out of their van here in Philly, if you'd like to make a donation to get them back rocking for Rama quicker you can make a new gear fund donation here: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=9046552

Caroliner - yes!!!
  Thu. 10/22/09 12:27pm stingy d:

oh my aching hands!
  Thu. 10/22/09 12:28pm Jonathan Steinke:

This guy should be putting out records!
  Thu. 10/22/09 12:32pm R ! S K Y:

out my window is a swarming group of lady bugs. . . GET EM SCOTT!
  Thu. 10/22/09 12:49pm Cecile:


Risky, I think NGH needed some of those last week.
  Thu. 10/22/09 12:50pm Dum Dum Guy at the Gates of Dawn:

7"7"7" is the mark of the Incubus.
  Thu. 10/22/09 12:52pm dc pat:

I think he's trying out soap spray.
  Thu. 10/22/09 12:52pm dc pat:

may I just be the first in the hate line, thank you...
  Thu. 10/22/09 12:53pm Ike:

I'll bring the hummus for the hate line party.
  Thu. 10/22/09 12:54pm david:

  Thu. 10/22/09 12:54pm Stuart Troutman:

Styx was among the worst bands of all time.
  Thu. 10/22/09 12:55pm Cecile:

*popping stuffed mushrooms in the over for the party*

Do you have some Guess Who or some what my friend calls dunka-dunka-dunka Midwest rock? Just nothing with Dennis DeYoung on it. ;D
  Thu. 10/22/09 12:55pm Cecile:

  Thu. 10/22/09 12:56pm Stuart Troutman:

I'd even choose Slade over Styx.
  Thu. 10/22/09 12:57pm SCott:

with you there Stuart Troutman, I really wanted this slade 7" to sound fab, but it sounds shit. the styx one sounded really good! super punch
  Thu. 10/22/09 12:57pm doug from DC:

Slade over Styx any day.
  Thu. 10/22/09 1:01pm Cecile:

Let's play rock paper scissors lizard Spock Slade Styx.
  Thu. 10/22/09 1:03pm Stuart Troutman:

Ok, you guys win: no Styx, no Slade either.
  Thu. 10/22/09 1:04pm dc pat:

Allow me to step out of the hate line now...
  Thu. 10/22/09 1:04pm SmokinJ:

Slade fucking rock..
  Thu. 10/22/09 1:06pm Cecile:

they do, J.
I love them. And that movie they were in, Flame is pretty damn good.
  Thu. 10/22/09 1:07pm Chris:

Yeah, Witch Hats, great live band. Would love to hear "Hellhole."
  Thu. 10/22/09 1:07pm BSI:

aaaaah............ it's def.time for a bit o'revolution.
not to mention the fact that it's the perfect song. Practically every cover a thing of obscene beauty.
  Thu. 10/22/09 1:07pm SmokinJ:

Never saw it C.. But I saw THEM, and they DO rock!
  Thu. 10/22/09 1:10pm AnAnonymousParty:

"You shouldn't do that ... You shouldn't do that ... You shouldn't do that ... You shouldn't do that ... You shouldn't do that ..."
  Thu. 10/22/09 1:10pm Lis Chere:

wow! thanks for playing "Goin Down to Bloomfield Center"

My dad, Jim Thomas, plays drums on that record.
  Thu. 10/22/09 1:10pm dc pat:

I don't mind Slade but Styx is one of those bands that turned me into a punk rocker..
  Thu. 10/22/09 1:11pm BSI:

AnAnonParty: Exactly! Perhaps that's why I dig it so...
  Thu. 10/22/09 1:12pm BSI:

(being the unrepentant hawkwind geek, that is)
  Thu. 10/22/09 1:13pm SmokinJ:

No mystery: Styx suck...
  Thu. 10/22/09 1:15pm Scott:

hey lis chere, funny - one of the guys in that band was my HS (or middle school?) drama teacher!; dc pat, there's a great Ramones interview on the Tom Snyder show (no Tom, he had a fillin) and the nice lady asks what they hate so much about 70s/80s rock, and Joey says "Styx" and it's like even the nice old lady understands! Are they the world's most hated band?
  Thu. 10/22/09 1:16pm MattJou:

Journey can be pretty bad too!
  Thu. 10/22/09 1:16pm Ne-guh-tor:

HEY! You're playing my band! Thanks, Scott. You broke us to the world!
  Thu. 10/22/09 1:17pm SmokinJ:

Journey is also wretching material..
  Thu. 10/22/09 1:18pm Scott:

Rocket Cottage is you? That explains something! Is this the band that opened for Blue Cheer?
  Thu. 10/22/09 1:18pm Ne-guh-tor:

Yes, indeed! RC! I'm on drums. We opened for BC last year.
  Thu. 10/22/09 1:20pm Cecile:

Styx are still very popular, I mean, they put out records with no airplay and they go gold.

It's just they are very, very polarizing. You either hate them, or you're like Freak and Geeks' Paul Feig and you try and cram in a Styx song in every episode (which, ironically makes it very period-accurate)

Negator, is Rocket Cottage named after that Steeleye Span album?
  Thu. 10/22/09 1:20pm Scott:

thanks for sending me the copy then!
  Thu. 10/22/09 1:22pm dc pat:

negator, you play Premieres? I use to, have an old set in the basement.
  Thu. 10/22/09 1:25pm cringe:

there's a way to make that not happen - all the sides have to be the same way around
  Thu. 10/22/09 1:25pm Ne-guh-tor:

Your welcome, Scott! We are recording our next EP in a short time. Cecile, we are named for the Steeleye record. DC Pat how did you know I play Premier? Uncanny! What do you play now?
  Thu. 10/22/09 1:25pm SmokinJ:

C: No airplay? Christ, the got LOT's of airplay here on the third coast...
  Thu. 10/22/09 1:27pm Ike:

Wow, I had forgotten that there was such dogforsaken musical whoredom featured in Freaks and Geeks. It was probably so period-accurate that I barely noticed. Great TV show, anyway.
  Thu. 10/22/09 1:27pm dc pat:

I quickly checked out your MySpace page, saw a pic--I mean, I could tell by the sound!!! I switched to guit long ago but recently "found" my kit again. Now my kids play it.
  Thu. 10/22/09 1:30pm Cecile:

Well, no airplay on top-40 stations.
If I was listening to classic rawk stations, they might be playing the new Styx album. I"m talking about their new album, sorry. Yes, they played so much Styx oin the midwest in the 70s, 80s, 90s, urm, still now.
  Thu. 10/22/09 1:33pm Stuart Troutman:

Scott, I really liked the distorted Harbor Lights organ. Reminded me of old dark tourist restaurant lounge joints of the early 60s.
  Thu. 10/22/09 1:36pm Ike:

Amazing Bablicon track!
  Thu. 10/22/09 1:36pm Stewart Stevenson:

Hey guys, what about Winger?
  Thu. 10/22/09 1:37pm Matt:

Winger too! eeek!!
  Thu. 10/22/09 1:38pm SmokinJ:

True C. Top Forty stations were but a memory when Styx broke...
  Thu. 10/22/09 1:39pm GP:

Jumping back in...here....right......about...NOW!
  Thu. 10/22/09 1:40pm GP:

Thanks for the Komik-Kazee info!
  Thu. 10/22/09 1:44pm Dum Dum Guy at the Gates of Dawn:

Maybe the dingo has set your baby on fire?
  Thu. 10/22/09 1:44pm Cecile:

THey played them on top 40 in the 70s. Just not now.
My language skills are crummy todays
  Thu. 10/22/09 1:48pm Stuart Troutman:

from the Ohio 70s, right?
  Thu. 10/22/09 1:48pm Carmichael:

Just came back. Noticed someone mentioned Slade and Styx in the same sentence on the same comments board.

That's enough to tear the fabric of the space-time continuum.
  Thu. 10/22/09 1:50pm GP:

A site that has photo that may or may not be the aforementioned Azalia Snail ,if interested:
  Thu. 10/22/09 1:54pm Glenn L:

That's definitely Azaila in that photo GP.
  Thu. 10/22/09 1:56pm GP:

Cool Glenn, there are a few others that I'd like to find out more about ; )
  Thu. 10/22/09 2:01pm BZ:

  Thu. 10/22/09 2:03pm SmokinJ:

Like I said, by the 70;s Top 40 was dead as I knew it..
  Thu. 10/22/09 2:04pm GP:

Ahhhh, distortion we missed ye.
  Thu. 10/22/09 2:06pm Ike:

This "Beat It" cover reminds me of that killer "Borderline" 7" by the Flaming Lips with Stardeath & White Dwarfs. Although that's more of a straight-up psych-ish blowout.
  Thu. 10/22/09 2:07pm BSI:

damn, but me likey the pumice.
  Thu. 10/22/09 2:08pm Ike:

...and less funny ...and less distorted... now that I think about it, they're actually not similar at all, except that they're both noisy covers of '80s pop hits.
  Thu. 10/22/09 2:12pm GP:

Regarding M.J,. covers...( Cecile, will probably know this one ) that Michigan band Moxy Fruvous has a nice one of "Billy Jean".
  Thu. 10/22/09 2:16pm Cecile:

I thought Moxy were from Canada?
No, I didn't know that one. Sounds good.

I gotta go. Pleasure talking to everyone.

Scott, you are the 45 King!
  Thu. 10/22/09 2:17pm paul:

LOTL ahhh!!!! one of the best 7"s i own!
  Thu. 10/22/09 2:18pm PMD:

Here now too. I love garage sales.
  Thu. 10/22/09 2:20pm Coolie:

  Thu. 10/22/09 2:21pm GP:

I think you are right Cecile...take care.

Love this Loops record.
  Thu. 10/22/09 2:24pm PMD:

The Great Swamp!!
  Thu. 10/22/09 2:33pm Russ:

Hell ya on the Rocket Cottage. EP's called Go For It! Not on any label known to man!
  Thu. 10/22/09 2:35pm PMD:

128k is burping. Guess I'll switch off.
  Thu. 10/22/09 2:37pm BSI:

no burping here (128k via EYEtunes). .. so far...
  Thu. 10/22/09 2:50pm Ne-guh-tor:

Anton, sure was naughty!
  Thu. 10/22/09 2:50pm GP:

Ha..Anton sounds like Lee Greenwood!
  Thu. 10/22/09 2:50pm monica:

  Thu. 10/22/09 2:51pm BSI:

  Thu. 10/22/09 2:52pm Scott:

  Thu. 10/22/09 2:52pm GP:

No not Lee..dangit..I still can't remember...I'll think of it some other time.
  Thu. 10/22/09 2:55pm Ne-guh-tor:

  Thu. 10/22/09 2:58pm Coolie:
