Who isn’t dying this month?
Avatar Fri. 1/29/16 12:40am coelacanth:

rest in peace.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/29/16 12:46am Tome:

bummer ! bit.ly...
Avatar Fri. 1/29/16 12:48am coelacanth:

ahh,one of my favorite airplane songs, Tome.
  Fri. 1/29/16 12:49am MrFab:

Diggin' the heavy sounds here in LA as I do the dishes. (Will try not to break any as I bang my head.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/29/16 12:50am Tome:

when you think about it 50 years ago !! wow ... loved the 1st LP too , and Signe Anderson too .
Avatar Fri. 1/29/16 12:51am coelacanth:

as am i Nick; and the ugly animal was excellent.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/29/16 12:54am Alejandroool:

the slide on this is great....
Avatar Fri. 1/29/16 12:58am coelacanth:

yeh,those first 5 albums. 'mostly excellent.
surrealistic pillow and volunteers were a huge part of my high-school daze, until punk took over!
...i rarely liked Slick's singing,but she wrote some great songs.
  Fri. 1/29/16 1:00am rw:


I like After Bathing at Baxter's
Avatar Fri. 1/29/16 1:00am JakeGould:

@coelacanth: The thing with Jefferson Airplane is they really, really, really overdid it during their “Starship” phase and it almost overwhelms everything else they did that was worth knowing/caring about. Heart almost went down that route as well, but never went as far as they did.
Avatar Fri. 1/29/16 1:01am coelacanth:

...yeah,50 years ago. 1965...people don't realise how groundbreaking it was then.
Avatar Fri. 1/29/16 1:05am coelacanth:

hey rw!
yeah,Jake. now i think about it,i was already into JA when volunteers was released, via my older brother; then lost track of them, probably because he didn't like "bark" or anything after.
but then i heard the starship stuff on the radio and 100% hated it immediately!
Avatar Fri. 1/29/16 1:06am JakeGould:

@coelacanth: I think there was one record exec or producer in the 1980s whose responsible for attempting to “revive” older bands in the 1980s with big hair and synths.
Avatar Fri. 1/29/16 1:10am coelacanth:

(...i must be mistaken AGAIN! i think it was c.'71-'72 that my brother got volunteers...but before 'starship came any way.)
...who was it Jake?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/29/16 1:11am ausmanx:

lovely to arrive and hear (unmistakeably) mr fripp. evening all...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/29/16 1:11am Alejandroool:

NN really enjoying the tunes - helping me get work done... on JA - think I'm too young to offer much input, but I obviously got into them at some point for however long/ whatever impact it may have had...
Avatar Fri. 1/29/16 1:16am coelacanth:

good timing ausmanx!

Aleja- i was too young to experience it as it hit; but a few years later was just old enough to understand the turmoil of the time, and what role this revolutionary music played in that.
-it blew my little mind! i remember very clearly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/29/16 1:17am Alejandroool:

man, this is dark sounding, and the dirty bass - love it. Should check out the full Live album
  Fri. 1/29/16 1:20am Clay:

Krankin' the Krimson on the TNP, baby! WTG Nick!!!!
Avatar Fri. 1/29/16 1:27am coelacanth:

and ausmanx Thanks again! this weekend i'll listen to it.

Jake, forgive my ignorance but i don't know who you meant...i fairly successfully disengaged myself from mainstream and popular music by the early 80s,and didn't start paying attention again until around 1996- when my car could only get the most powerful stations, and i was with a woman who indulged in some mainstream stuff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/29/16 1:29am Tome:

... "cool" jaZZ , when requested to play in the car in the 90's , oiy ... but good memories ,,
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/29/16 1:34am Alejandroool:

16 yrs! what would you have heard in 1996 on the most powerful stations at that time hmm
Avatar Fri. 1/29/16 1:34am coelacanth:

yes. there's some music that i like that i probably never would have if not for someone else who i wanted to be open-minded for!
...a lot of those songs i didn't know were mainstream radio songs until years later! i thought she was turning me on to obscure underground music!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/29/16 1:36am Tome:

... there's now place like home,,, right here ,,
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/29/16 1:37am Alejandroool:

such a great sounding recording - excellent amount of reverb, great stereo mix...
Avatar Fri. 1/29/16 1:37am coelacanth:

Aleja, rage against the machine, s.t.p.,pearl jam,soul coughing,black crows....
Avatar Fri. 1/29/16 1:38am coelacanth:

this whole album was pretty amazing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/29/16 1:39am Alejandroool:

yes - CC, played some of that music in various parent's basements in 1996...hah
Avatar Fri. 1/29/16 1:41am Dave Bombay:

That jefferson airplane track caught me off guard in a wonderful way!
Avatar Fri. 1/29/16 1:58am coelacanth:

hey Aleja, not to beat down a subject,but lest i contradict myself in the future and it looks like i'm fulla shit!... i want to say that that 16 years wasn't spent in a vacuum. i did buy "surfer rosa" when it came out,for instants; and got into nirvana in '92. there must be others i'm not recalling.
...so, were you playing in a band in 1996?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/29/16 2:07am Alejandroool:

aha no worries - hah nothing that would count, I was 15 yrs old in 1996
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/29/16 2:08am Alejandroool:

still even learning how to play an instrument I'm sure
  Fri. 1/29/16 2:12am rw:

Nick! Hate to do it but I'm cutting out early because my eyes hurt and I'm not getting any work done. Always dig your shows. I may have to listen to the remainder on my way to work tomorrow morning. Have a good week/weekend everybody!
Avatar Fri. 1/29/16 2:13am coelacanth:

okay. i completely forgot to tell you that that song is excellent!
Avatar Fri. 1/29/16 2:14am coelacanth:

good evening rw.

thx rw - have a good weekend
Avatar Fri. 1/29/16 2:18am coelacanth:

A, you mentioned fugazi,so sure enough i thought of fugazi... i like fugazi- and i'm not sure i would've thought of it if you hadn't said it. so- "influenced by" but not mimicking= good.
Avatar Fri. 1/29/16 2:25am coelacanth:

yes i need to check out too Nick. Thanks Great program!
ciao all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/29/16 2:25am Alejandroool:

well thx CC for checking it out. we are self aware about that, but not in a bad way, I try very little to describe music when involved in making it..
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/29/16 2:26am Alejandroool:

nite cc!

It'd be neat if someone could translate this whale talk and show us what they're saying.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/29/16 2:54am Alejandroool:

hopefully something useful
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/29/16 2:55am ausmanx:

the whale is asking if it can come into the FMU studio and do a live session...
Avatar Fri. 1/29/16 3:00am JakeGould:

@ausmanx: Be cool to adopt a WFMU whale.
