Unstuck in time, The Avant Ghetto wanders through heavy folk, pastoral noise, spiritual rock, harsh jazz and other dimly lit corners of the universe.

Seems like this song has spawned a lot of interesting covers. Hi, Jeff.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 6/15/15 3:13am Jeff Conklin:

Hi, PSS. That might be my favorite rendition
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/15/15 3:19am pacific standard simon:

I'm new to your show (work schedule change), but it has a real old-school, late-night radio feel.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 6/15/15 3:26am Jeff Conklin:

Welcome aboard, Simon. Glad to have you. Hope you hear something that sticks with you....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/15/15 3:33am pacific standard simon:

Huh. trying to look up Rainbow Band, but the first page on Google is all about the Ritchie Blackmore Rainbow.
Avatar Mon. 6/15/15 3:38am JimBarker:

There's this on discogs: www.discogs.com...
Avatar Mon. 6/15/15 3:39am JimBarker:

Really enjoying this show. Sadly I have to go to work in about 7 minutes (I live in the UK, and it's nearly quarter to 9)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/15/15 3:39am pacific standard simon:

Wait, what? Those guys were Danes?
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 6/15/15 3:41am Jeff Conklin:

Thanks for checking in Jim. Yup, Rainbow Band were Danish. Just one album I believe recorded in 1970
  Mon. 6/15/15 3:41am fredr:

Great sounds as usual Jeff. Listening to you live, not archive as I'm in and out of sleep.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 6/15/15 3:42am Jeff Conklin:

Sorry in advance for any nightmares, fredr.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/15/15 3:42am pacific standard simon:

There's something about how they re-recorded it under the name Midnight Sun, because some Canadians owned the name "Rainbow Band".
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/15/15 3:44am pacific standard simon:

In the early '70s I used to fall asleep to stuff like this on KSAN San Francisco.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 6/15/15 3:49am Jeff Conklin:

KSAN was pretty hip from what I've read...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/15/15 3:59am pacific standard simon:

It was. Sometimes a little TOO hip for its own good -- the program directors could slam down hard on perfectly wonderful music that was judged too pop or too nerdy. But all in all, it was great. And a lot of bootlegs you find on the internet today wouldn't exist without their live shows. Plus they (sometimes) supported punk when that happened.
  Mon. 6/15/15 4:01am rw:

Hey Jeff, enjoying the show. Waiting to hear your pronunciation of Les Rallizes Denudés. My friends and I usually just say something like, "That Japanese band with the French name that I can't remember or pronounce".
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/15/15 4:04am pacific standard simon:

Lay Ralsay Denudeh?
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 6/15/15 4:05am Jeff Conklin:

now im gonna be all self conscious about it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/15/15 4:06am pacific standard simon:

I have to say, this show is pretty damn hip.
  Mon. 6/15/15 4:09am rw:

Ha! Don't be self conscious! It's cool. We're like family. Though I'm pretty sure nobody on FMU has ever mispronounced the name of a band before.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/15/15 4:14am pacific standard simon:

Yeah, Roger Dean, his first one.

Interesting -- the Woodstock album was ALSO on Cotillion. The label must have thought they were holding Quill back for a big solo splash.
  Mon. 6/15/15 4:18am rw:

I liked that Meg Baird track. I'm going to check out the album.

Okay. That's it for me. Good night. Have a good week everybody!
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 6/15/15 4:19am Jeff Conklin:

Thanks, rw
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/15/15 4:48am pacific standard simon:

Shawn David McMillen digs Howard Roberts, he says. Good taste.

OK, the Dead. You're speaking my language. This era, at least.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 6/15/15 4:51am Jeff Conklin:

Antelope Freeway!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/15/15 4:52am pacific standard simon:

Yep, it was an overnight staple back in the day.
  Mon. 6/15/15 4:59am P-90:

That was a good one.
  Mon. 6/15/15 5:05am zclauterbach:

morning Jeff. just now timing end. caught the end of that dead jam.
  Mon. 6/15/15 5:05am zclauterbach:

after your description sad I missed that milrod, tilth, McMillen segment. will have to go back to the archives later today.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/15/15 5:06am pacific standard simon:

If an excerpt from I Think We're All Bozos On This Bus were to appear, I might die satisfied.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 6/15/15 5:07am Jeff Conklin:

Hey P-90 and Zach
  Mon. 6/15/15 5:08am Vorstadthaus:

always a pleasure to spend a mid Monday morning in Berlin with yr selection
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 6/15/15 5:09am Jeff Conklin:

Thanks, Vorst! Say hello to Berlin for me even though I've never been
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/15/15 5:12am pacific standard simon:

Pinch-hitting for John Fahey...
  Mon. 6/15/15 5:16am fredrl:

Love the old Floyd!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/15/15 5:16am pacific standard simon:

Well. If you'd played me the first part of this song and asked me to guess, I never would have picked Pink Floyd. Some country rock band, maybe. Clover?
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 6/15/15 5:18am Jeff Conklin:

Hearing that Floyd track after being bludgeoned by the hits on classic rock radio for years was some revelation, let me tell you!
Avatar Mon. 6/15/15 5:20am pierre:

I am REALLY in need of music.

Bonjour Jeff and listeners
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/15/15 5:21am pacific standard simon:

I used to call up my local station and request Pink Floyd, but all they would ever play was "Grandchester Meadows". Never heard of Syd Barrett, apparently.
  Mon. 6/15/15 5:23am JoeRay:

@pacific standard simon Squeeze the wheeze!
