Listener comments!

  Mon. 11/29/10 3:03pm issac from Baja California:

ill always remember the naked gun trilogy and Airplane... :(
  Mon. 11/29/10 3:10pm BSI:

what the frak? Leslie Nielsen now....?
  Mon. 11/29/10 3:16pm ?:

Google is great...but not helping me figure out what the 3rd VU record is exactly
  Mon. 11/29/10 3:16pm BSI:

Thanks for this.... much of the Coil back catalog has been on heavy rotation at BSI HQ of late...
  Mon. 11/29/10 3:20pm Scott:

Sure thing BSI! Dear ?, it's just called Velvet Underground, the one with Candy Says, Pale Blue Eyes, Jesus and all those other mega-downers - that I truly love.
  Mon. 11/29/10 3:23pm Mike East:

Sure, most of that record is a downer, but After Hours always cheers me up.
  Mon. 11/29/10 3:24pm ?:

thanks Scott! the Velve was my first guess, but i assumed the reference was to something more obscure...carry on grasshopper
  Mon. 11/29/10 3:25pm Scott:

Hey Mike East - ha! Yeah, Mo saves the day, coming in at the last second to hide the sharp objects!
  Mon. 11/29/10 3:29pm Mark:

Hey Scott, can you play a love song. You know ... where boy finds girl, boy loses girl, girl finds boy, boy forgets girl, boy remembers girl, girls dies in a tragic blimp accident over the Orange Bowl on New Year's Day? RIP Leslie Nielsen.
  Mon. 11/29/10 3:33pm Scott:

@Mark, Ha! (this fits, no?)
  Mon. 11/29/10 3:35pm paul b:

Wild! I was just thinking of this song (pale blues eyes) this very moment after seeing it was used in the soundtrack to the film Vertical Ray of the Sun
  Mon. 11/29/10 3:36pm tim:

I just read the VU book "White Light/White Heat" which documented the Velvets activities "day by day". It took me about a month and a half to read it but it was quite informative.
  Mon. 11/29/10 3:37pm noah:

That song alone makes me able to forgive Lou Reed for performing the entirety of "The Raven" when I saw him live a few years ago.
  Mon. 11/29/10 3:39pm Parq:

@Mark, 3:29 - Goodyear?
  Mon. 11/29/10 3:40pm Bad Ronald:

No, it was a bad year.
  Mon. 11/29/10 3:40pm Mike East:

I just bought "Berlin" used. Its better than I was expecting.
  Mon. 11/29/10 3:41pm Bad Ronald:

@Mike East - I love Berlin, it's a tear jerker with quite a cast! Nice production by Bob Ezrin.
  Mon. 11/29/10 3:43pm issac from Tijuana:

Lou Reed's Coney Island Baby is more of a wrist slahser for me
  Mon. 11/29/10 3:44pm jojo:

don't forget nasty little french kids
  Mon. 11/29/10 3:44pm Adler:

I got my brochure and it was stunning. Thanks Scott.
  Mon. 11/29/10 3:47pm Happy Listener:

Thanks, Scott, for telling me about the Lexicon MPX-100 a few weeks back. I bought one for my wife's birthday, and she's thrilled. Eventually, I'll get a chance to hear my guitar thru it.
  Mon. 11/29/10 3:48pm Scott:

Happy Listener, that makes me -really- happy!
  Mon. 11/29/10 3:50pm jeff-m:

thanks for the Nina Simone track. Odd song the way it was built around that odd melody.
  Mon. 11/29/10 3:52pm Happy Listener:


On another note... R.I.P. "Sleazy"? All of Coil has moved on, now? When? How? He didn't fall off a balcony, too?
  Mon. 11/29/10 3:53pm BSI:

ooh, feeding my Vinton fetish now.

and Happy Listener: Jhonn and Sleazy were certainly the core, I suppose, but heavy collaborators are many. Thighpaulsandra & co....
  Mon. 11/29/10 3:54pm Brian in UK:

This Bobby Vinton is priceless.
  Mon. 11/29/10 3:55pm Happy Listener:

This hurts me a little. I'm going to tune out for a bit and listen to Time Machines and Love's Secret Domain.
  Mon. 11/29/10 3:59pm don:

damn near perfect, this TG. yo there, scott. the dull objects are the ones to really fear!
  Mon. 11/29/10 4:00pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

Hi Scott. I've been here all along but I've just now decided to say I really like this track.
  Mon. 11/29/10 4:01pm Scott:

Yeah Don, really hitting the spot. I live in Candyland by the way, there are no dull objects here.
  Mon. 11/29/10 4:13pm don:

that explains a lot, scott. was looking into renting the crooked old peanut brittle house.. http://tinyurl.com/candylandddddd .. but got tweaked on gumdrops, flipped wig and jet sailed out of there instead.
  Mon. 11/29/10 4:19pm Scott:

yeh Don, that happens a lot here
  Mon. 11/29/10 4:31pm Capitalz:

same progression as the Billy the Kid theme, no?
  Mon. 11/29/10 4:33pm Capitalz:

well played!
  Mon. 11/29/10 4:34pm Scott:

Cued up, smartypants, I heard that too - same melody.
  Mon. 11/29/10 4:34pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I gotta dig this album out. I used to listen to this when I was in 8th grade when everyone else was listening to Culture Club.
  Mon. 11/29/10 4:35pm Capitalz:

i didnt mean to steal your thunder, scott. fucking psyched though!
  Mon. 11/29/10 4:37pm Scott:

No worries Capitalz, I keep my thunder with my blunt objects
  Mon. 11/29/10 4:43pm Happy Listener:

Ahh, coming back to a Velvets cover, very nice.
  Mon. 11/29/10 4:47pm Happy Listener:

After listening to some choice Coil tracks, I noticed an interesting passage in "The Snow - Answers Come In Dreams II". It's a snippet of Alan Watts talking about humankind's attitude towards death, about it being "falsely important". I thought it was interesting, anyway, in a time when I feel like my heroes are slipping over the horizon more quickly than I'd like.
  Mon. 11/29/10 4:53pm BSI:

"does Death come alone? ... or with eager reinforcements?"
-- coil, fire of the mind / ape of naples

Actually, that fine TG track left me hungry for the coil disc "constant shallowness leads to evil" ... the series of tunes called Tunnel of Goats. It's beautiful and brutal...
  Mon. 11/29/10 5:03pm marq:

  Mon. 11/29/10 5:06pm Capitalz:

this background cut makes me a lot happy
  Mon. 11/29/10 5:07pm Sharp Object:

I'm still right here, yoohoo....
  Mon. 11/29/10 5:08pm Blackproaganda:

What was the bolero track?
  Mon. 11/29/10 5:09pm marq:

My receiver died. death. I need to get a new one to be able to hear wfmu through my big speakers and to play records. Lonely turntables just sitting there. wonder what they are thinking? They are just lifeless without the receiver.
  Mon. 11/29/10 5:11pm Scott:

Hey Blackproaganda, that's Kebekelektrik's version of Ravel's Bolero
  Mon. 11/29/10 5:11pm Capitalz:

marq, bet they are thinking "now where did scott put all those sharp objects?"
  Mon. 11/29/10 5:14pm Stylus:

Turntables always have a sharp object nearby.
  Mon. 11/29/10 5:16pm Capitalz:

needle-less to say, there are exceptions to that rule, stylus.
  Mon. 11/29/10 5:17pm Stylus:

  Mon. 11/29/10 5:18pm Stylus:

Sorry, I was cutting.
  Mon. 11/29/10 5:19pm Capitalz:

the cheese or the rug?!
and seriously. ya blowing minds today scott.
  Mon. 11/29/10 5:20pm Stylus:

Myself, gramps.
  Mon. 11/29/10 5:22pm Capitalz:

well i musta been born yesterday
  Mon. 11/29/10 5:22pm redwing:

Where are the Stones?
  Mon. 11/29/10 5:30pm marq:

I am actually not really listening to the show that much. since my receiver has died and gone on an airplane to heaven with Leslie Nielsen I can't hear anything in my underground studio lair. I have wireless speakers hooked up around the house and in the garage. When I go for a beer in the garage I hear the show.
  Mon. 11/29/10 5:30pm jeremy:

  Mon. 11/29/10 5:32pm Scott:

Hey Jer
  Mon. 11/29/10 5:35pm jeremy:

i'm a little pissed that i'd turned the volume down around 2 pm and at 5 realized there was no music, and what was worse, i'd missed two hours of your show. utter failure. sucks about leslie neilson. will be missed.
  Mon. 11/29/10 5:36pm redwing:

hey Scott, where are the fucking Stones?
  Mon. 11/29/10 5:53pm jeff-m:

good show today man, enjoyed it very much
  Mon. 11/29/10 5:57pm Scott:

Oh, thanks a lot Jeff! Coming from you...
  Mon. 11/29/10 6:00pm Bad Ronald:

For what it's worth, I concur w/Jeff-M enthusiastically.

Nurse - Scalpel!
  Mon. 11/29/10 6:02pm ellliot:

Stuck in a train with a broken engine in Delaware... Enjoyed the shew...
  Mon. 11/29/10 6:02pm ellliot:

Stuck in a train with a broken engine in Delaware... Enjoyed the shew...
  Mon. 11/29/10 6:02pm ellliot:

Stuck in a train with a broken engine in Delaware... Enjoyed the shew...
  Mon. 11/29/10 6:08pm Scott:

Thanks to all of you, I enjoyed it. Elliot, I'm sure it's cold comfort but that's one of my favorite ways to enjoy stuff
