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

44 percent from my goal for the fundraiser...who's gonna stand up and pitch in!?!?!? (thanks if you have already!)

I'm brassic Jeff

That's ok, Simon. We welcome you just as much as those who are flush with disposable income.

Wednesday is payday, tweet me @bnrsstlfr and I'll happily contribute again. The app is really buggy tonight ...
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 10/19/15 3:20am Jeff Conklin:

What's going on with the app?
Avatar Mon. 10/19/15 3:21am Bentangle:

I keep getting "streaming error" or long periods of buffering.

Great show!
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 10/19/15 3:29am Jeff Conklin:

try wfmu.org/mobile and one of the non-app buttons?
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 10/19/15 3:35am Jeff Conklin:

Thanks, FKATS@TCT!
Avatar Mon. 10/19/15 3:36am Bentangle:

And like that the app is running smoothly, it must have wanted me to hear this awesome Hills track.
  Mon. 10/19/15 3:49am Bodahbot:

Hey Jeff, listening & enjoying. Thanks man.
  Mon. 10/19/15 3:51am Bodahbot:

Was just listening to some Yusef Lateef Eastern Sounds before coming over here and finding the Shepp hits somewhere near the same spot.
Avatar Mon. 10/19/15 3:55am Dan Bodah:

(and not having any troubles with the Android app FWIW)

Thanks for checking in, [Dan?] Bodahbot

This Archie Shepp is boss!
Avatar Mon. 10/19/15 4:02am dyingforbadmusic:

Good morning @all. I love the bird sounds! :)
Avatar Mon. 10/19/15 4:05am Dan Bodah:

I wondered if you had put a LDP record on underneath the Shepp -- that synth was so well integrated and somewhat unexpected in the piece. Excellent.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 10/19/15 4:07am Jeff Conklin:

Ha. Definitely not, Dan ;)
Avatar Mon. 10/19/15 4:12am Dan Bodah:

Someone on Discogs says in comments that the title track of the Shepp record includes "romulus franceschini, donald F.cooper (electronics)" -- and I see Burrell credited on electric piano, which maybe didn't make those crazy sounds back in 1970-71? Not sure if this commenter knows of what he speaks, but it'd be worth exploring. (Apparently they weren't credited on the liners.)
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 10/19/15 4:15am Jeff Conklin:

Yeah, it doesn't seem likely it was Burrell. Maybe it was the producer?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/19/15 4:19am pacific standard simon:

Whut's so funny 'bout the understanding raga?

Hey, Simon

Howdy Jeff. Sometimes it's easier to drift into a show from a horizontal position.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 10/19/15 4:25am Jeff Conklin:

I totally get it, Simon.

Android app working fine here in San Francisco
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 10/19/15 4:28am Jeff Conklin:

Right on, wombat, thanks for letting me know. I get freaked out!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Mon. 10/19/15 4:30am Ken From Hyde Park:

My Android phone updated to Lollipop recently. I've found the wifi connection to be less robust than before. When the streaming app acts flaky, I've found that turning the phone's wifi off and on again helps sometimes. Another thing that helps is to close down the app and restart it.
Avatar Mon. 10/19/15 4:34am BEAVO:

Sounds like Eno/Fripp
  Mon. 10/19/15 4:36am Bentangle:

Ironically, I haven't had any trouble since you mentioned it on-air.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/19/15 4:38am pacific standard simon:

My Kindle uses a version of the android app, and it always works just fine, but, since it doesn't allow me to log in as me, I haven't fallen in love with it.
  Mon. 10/19/15 4:38am Bentangle:

Thanks for the tip, Ken!
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 10/19/15 4:40am Jeff Conklin:

I can't get any reception/apps with the dog eared copy of 'Shakey' I'm reading :(
  Mon. 10/19/15 4:42am Bentangle:

Not even Pono?
  Mon. 10/19/15 4:42am tomas:

great show as always jeff. you make monday mornings a little more tolerable. great music here.
  Mon. 10/19/15 4:42am wombat:

I don't believe the Android app works with the Galaxy S6. Not the app's fault though. I'm writing an app for another station, and encountered the problem myself.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/19/15 4:42am pacific standard simon:

Maaan, try making some aluminum foil rabbit ears on that thing.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 10/19/15 4:43am Jeff Conklin:

Aw thanks, Tomas! Glad to be of service.

Has anybody ACTUALLY used a PONO?
  Mon. 10/19/15 4:44am Bentangle:

I've eaten a Toblerone, does that count?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/19/15 4:47am pacific standard simon:

"Not me!", as the kids in Family Circus might say.

Hey, Guido. Good morning to you,...

The earliest use of Frippertronics I can find is in the song "2 HB" on the first Roxy Music album. Although I suspect it goes back earlier to Terry Riley or Stephen Reich.

leaving the bay area in 2000 was one of the best things i have ever done. ugh. the worst of all possible worlds.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/19/15 5:10am pacific standard simon:

I left San Francisco in 2013. My landlord was happy to see me go, because I was paying about $1100 a month for a "2 1/2 bedroom", after 17 years of rent control. I'm sure, after looking at the Craigslist posts, that the rent was at least tripled or quadrupled when I left. BTW, the apartment only had one real bedroom.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/19/15 5:16am pacific standard simon:

The others were the living room, and an enclosed porch, which actually were used as shared rentals in the apartment below us.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 10/19/15 5:17am Jeff Conklin:

That's crazy, Simon. I'm holding on in Brooklyn by a thread....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/19/15 5:23am pacific standard simon:

Part of me wishes I was still holding on there, as a point of pride, but the place was falling apart at the seams, and I'm sure they were about to offer us a buyout anyway.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/19/15 5:27am pacific standard simon:

Did he say, "Take it, Jesus"? I'd love to hear a baseball player say that when he was up to bat.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/19/15 5:33am pacific standard simon:

I can understand how Brewer & Shipley were never going to be all that hip after their big hit, but I still wish they could have been, anyway. Bet a lot of people my age would feel the same way.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 10/19/15 5:36am Jeff Conklin:

Ha, Simon. That's why you need (slightly) younger guys around like me to hear them in a new context...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/19/15 5:38am pacific standard simon:

Very true, I guess.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/19/15 5:53am pacific standard simon:

Maybe FMU should go out on the street with recording equipment and broadcast buskers live. Or don't you have street buskers there?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Mon. 10/19/15 5:56am Guido from Cologne:

Very beautiful
Perfect for monday morning
CU Jeff
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 10/19/15 5:57am Jeff Conklin:

Thanks, all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 10/19/15 5:59am pacific standard simon:

There's a street soprano sax player here who can't find the melody to "Harlem Nocturne"' with both hands, but it's entertaining to listen to him try.
