Navigating the new homepage...

Hey there, Jeff
Avatar Mon. 11/23/15 3:12am Jeff Conklin:

Morning, everybody...

There's a new homepage?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 11/23/15 3:12am pacific standard simon:

I was about to quote "Some Kinds Of Love" as a comment on the sound of this...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 11/23/15 3:15am pacific standard simon:

RIP Robert Quine, I guess.
  Mon. 11/23/15 3:16am rw:

New homepage. Yes.

Hey Jeff Conklin, I've been listening to your WFMU premium in my garage. There don't seem to be any track listings, etc. Is there a story behind the tape?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 11/23/15 3:18am pacific standard simon:

When I was a kid, all we had was Live At Max's Kansas City and Velvet Underground 1969. You don't know how good you got it.
Avatar Mon. 11/23/15 3:20am Jeff Conklin:

Hey RW. I'm glad you are enjoying the tape. It is a sequel to a mixtape my father made in the 90s that I derived a lot of pleasure from, hence the "II". The picture on the front is of him and his dog when we were on a camping trip a few summers ago. I intentionally made the tape without a tracklist so one could not simply find tracks on YoutTube (if possible) and not listen to the tape as it was laid out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 11/23/15 3:24am pacific standard simon:

I never did figure out which guitars were Lou Reed's, and which were Sterling Morrison's. Guess it doesn't matter anymore.
Avatar Mon. 11/23/15 3:25am Jeff Conklin:

I guess this version is on the Quine tapes box but I don't recall the sound being this good on that version. Either way, a 36 minute Sister Ray is a graveyard DJ's best friend...
  Mon. 11/23/15 3:27am John in Texas:

Good morning, I must seek out and listen to this mixtape!

(Sadly, I must finish this show later via DL as its back to work I go).
  Mon. 11/23/15 3:29am rw:

Nice. Thanks! Yeah, it's good for listening while working on garage projects (my only working tape deck is in there). I suppose that fits with the father/son theme. I've been considering Shazam, but sometimes it's nice not to know everything.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 11/23/15 3:30am pacific standard simon:

My recollection is that all the Matrix tapes were made by Quine (I could be wrong). I don't remember any of that stuff sounding this good, but technology is magic.
Avatar Mon. 11/23/15 3:30am Jeff Conklin:

I love having everything available to me on the computer like the next guy but with that tape I really wanted it to be something special for the handful who got it. I'd prefer people dubbed it to another tape and gave it to a friend rather than ripping it and putting it online.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 11/23/15 3:32am pacific standard simon:

I never traded tapes, so I'm out of that loop.
Avatar Mon. 11/23/15 3:34am Jeff Conklin:

Simon: Per the liner notes: This was NOT recorded by Quine but he did record this, if you know what I'm saying. This has to be a soundboard. He was using a handheld I believe...
Avatar Mon. 11/23/15 3:34am Jeff Conklin:

Well, not a handheld, a "portable" which was probably 25 pounds
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 11/23/15 3:35am pacific standard simon:

I wonder if this release has any new commentary by Yule or Tucker.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 11/23/15 3:39am pacific standard simon:

I remember the equipment. Quine was using a machine that would never be allowed inside a club a few years later, after bootlegs became common.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 11/23/15 3:45am pacific standard simon:

@Jeff - You're supposed to save tracks like this until you're deep into the show and you need to go to the bathroom.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 11/23/15 3:47am pacific standard simon:

This is starting to sound like the mid-seventies, "Kicks" version of Lou Reed. Cool.
Avatar Mon. 11/23/15 4:05am Guido from Cologne:

hello Jeff!
happy to enjoy your show @ work!

stallman said it: sharing is not wrong. only assholes do not share.
Avatar Mon. 11/23/15 4:07am Jeff Conklin:

Hey Guido! Tinkel, do you mean Stollman as in Bernard?
Avatar Mon. 11/23/15 4:17am Guido from Cologne:

guess he quotes free software guru Richard StAllman:

Drifting off to bed.... good night....
  Mon. 11/23/15 4:24am tinkle bear:

@Jeff Conklin: No, I meant Richard Stallman, as in rms, as in the guy
who started the GNU project.

But thanks for pointing me to Bernard Stollman. If we ever bunk
together in Hell, I'll make sure to piss on his toothbrush.

From Bernard's current wikipedia page: 'Peter Stampfel of the band
Holy Modal Rounders and The Fugs claimed that Stollman told him that
"the contract says that all rights belong to me. You have no royalties
ever, ever, ever. The publishing is mine. You don’t own the songs
anymore. We don’t owe you anything".'
Avatar Mon. 11/23/15 4:27am Jeff Conklin:

Stollman made right a lot of the wrongs from his past before he died or was at least trying to. At the end of the day, he released a lot of amazing music nobody else would touch. For that, music lovers owe him a debt of gratitude. But, yes, his business was, at the very least, suspect for many years...
Avatar Mon. 11/23/15 4:37am Guido from Cologne:

Stollman is known for putting all the money back into new releases.
Avatar Mon. 11/23/15 4:39am Guido from Cologne:

Other thing is, Stollman happend to publish before the Artist was satisfied, changed titles, etc.
Avatar Mon. 11/23/15 4:42am Guido from Cologne:

... as happened to Jim Holmberg ("Yodeling Astrologer" album)
Avatar Mon. 11/23/15 4:49am pierre:

WOW the new homepage !
that's a change
