"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

Options December 17, 2014: Vince Martin - talkin' about brooklyn, music, food and the holidays
Brooklyn born and raised Vince Martin first recorded with the Tarriers in 1956 on the hit single "Cindy, Oh Cindy." He became more widely known in the early 1960s through his duo recordings with Fred Neil and became very popular and influential on the burgeoning folk (and later folk rock) scene. Cited by the Coen Brothers as one of the musicians who influenced their movie “Inside Llewyn Davis”, Ethan Coen describes Vince Martin as “the Italian kid who decided to be Vince Martin”.

Good morning John and crew.

precious show John, is it going to be all christmassy ?
Avatar Wed. 12/17/14 6:11am the Canterbury wood-elf:

Morning John! I'm looking forward to this. A lot of Christian hymns borrowed folk melodies, so if you strip out the pomposity and daft lyrics, you're sometimes left with music of great beauty.

Good morning, John, and hello all. Sounding very fine from where I sit.

I had no idea John Foxx worked with Budd or did anything remotely like that! @JA, if you're short of material, perhaps you can squeeze this in, it's totally gorgeous (and fitting): www.youtube.com...
