-yeah that was killer. i've always liked yo la tengo, but still i like this turn they've taken.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/19/16 12:30am Alejandroool:

improv can sometimes prove fruitful, yes indeed cc
Avatar Fri. 2/19/16 12:30am crateslinger:

Had that last track on low volume while I did some stuff. Finally noticed it was great and turned it up just as it ended. Holy Crap. Yo La Tengo is pretty good!
  Fri. 2/19/16 12:30am Jeff:

Dun sounds like it is private press...lovely music.

Hi Aj! I'm in New Brunswick, never been to TO strangely enough.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/19/16 12:34am Alejandroool:

ah I see! I've been through east coast a handful of times, have a few friends over Fredericton, Sackville etc. Brr...
Avatar Fri. 2/19/16 12:35am coelacanth:

they've always had improvised jams, and were always good; but always basic git,bass,drums, feedback....sometimes organ. i've never heard them get dark-droney like that.
  Fri. 2/19/16 12:35am Nick Name:

Hello Jeff - wfmu loves Canada! yes, self released

(uh, that was weird. never mind. i guess i'm giving them an "a"!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/19/16 12:38am Alejandroool:

...a. Eh?
  Fri. 2/19/16 12:38am rw:

I'm less acquainted with YLT than I probably should be. That LP side sounded pretty darned good though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/19/16 12:38am Alejandroool:

most of us are nice, rw, I hope..
Avatar Fri. 2/19/16 12:39am coelacanth:

exactly, A. a!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/19/16 12:40am Alejandroool:

this Steve Warner is oddly energizing
  Fri. 2/19/16 12:40am Nick Name:

That 12" is split with Bardo Pond, when i listened to it earlier this week i thought maybe they had put the labels on the wrong side?
  Fri. 2/19/16 12:43am Jeff:

Sun Ra was one of the most eccentric geniuses to ever live.....and I suppose he still lives on. Fantastic show thus far Nick!
Avatar Fri. 2/19/16 12:44am coelacanth:

i'm not nearly as familiar with bardo pond (though i like everything i've heard)...but my un-expert opinion says that track could be either one of them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/19/16 12:45am Alejandroool:

sounds like the organ is having a hard time cutting through that tree
  Fri. 2/19/16 12:45am Jeff:

R2D2 on acid.
Avatar Fri. 2/19/16 12:45am crateslinger:

YLT is like the FMU band right? I mean except for the Beatles...
Avatar Fri. 2/19/16 12:46am coelacanth:

...but there are other artists that i'd think of first if you played that without saying who it is.
Avatar Fri. 2/19/16 12:46am crateslinger:

Then there's Bevis Frond... another band smart people listen to I know nothing about.
  Fri. 2/19/16 12:47am rw:

It's always nice when R2D2 gets into the acid.
Avatar Fri. 2/19/16 12:48am crateslinger:

I saw a Bevis Frond t-shirt on the subway once. The guy looked like he had a great job, but didn't have to dress up.
Avatar Fri. 2/19/16 12:51am coelacanth:

'slinger - YLT plays the fundraisers. they take requests for any song from pledgers on the final night. one member has djed but i'm pretty sure that came well after the band was formed.
Avatar Fri. 2/19/16 12:55am crateslinger:

I know they support the station big time, have been around for a million years, have a million albums. No idea where they're from or anything else. They're like The Fall to me. I like them when I hear them but I just don't have the time to investigate.
Avatar Fri. 2/19/16 12:56am crateslinger:

ps - I know they're nothing like the fall, except maybe some crazy dude is the boss.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/19/16 12:57am Alejandroool:

slinger.. There's so much. I'm sure you could start many places but "I Can Hear The Heart Beating As One" from 1997 had an impact on me, personally, FWIW
Avatar Fri. 2/19/16 12:59am crateslinger:

I been meaning to do the research. So many things.
Avatar Fri. 2/19/16 1:01am crateslinger:

Not usually up this late. Great show. Another one to put on my list of archives. Great Name too, Nick! Shoulda been a punk rock lead singer.
Avatar Fri. 2/19/16 1:03am coelacanth:

i can relate regarding the fall. my lack of great interest in the fall is because to me it all sounds too similar, like rap. yo la tengo is all over the map, stylistically.
i feel (or felt,until <an hour ago) that i had a good variety of their music, with 6-7 albums.
i don't love everything they do but at least like most of it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/19/16 1:03am Alejandroool:

def. a wise move, crateslinger
Avatar Fri. 2/19/16 1:04am crateslinger:

yeah. The Fall. Heard it 25 years ago. YLT is all over the map. Like Ween, but not for frat parties.
Avatar Fri. 2/19/16 1:05am coelacanth:

haha! yeah! -but they're not quite as all over the map as ween!
Avatar Fri. 2/19/16 1:07am crateslinger:

is bevis frond worth a listen?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/19/16 1:09am ausmanx:

good evening all. you know, you could say Beethoven all sounds pretty similar too. depends how carefully you want to to listen. i get people don't want to take the trouble with The Fall (esp as Smith is so unpleasant) but at least with them it's always worth the effort for those who DO choose..
Avatar Fri. 2/19/16 1:09am coelacanth:

i think i confuse bardo pond and bevis frond!
(but i think i've gold-starred both on wfmu playlists)
Avatar Fri. 2/19/16 1:12am crateslinger:

The Fall is punk. Props. Always a good song too. Yo La Tengo, Bevis Frond, and Bardo Pond. Homework. In that order. Never did homework before.
Avatar Fri. 2/19/16 1:15am coelacanth:

greetings ausmanx!
- i did like the fall enough to have bought 2 albums- a few years apart in release dates. i always like them, at least a little, but i never hear anything that compels me to get another album. i notice the changes, but they're subtle. (unless there's a whole other side to them that wfmu never plays)
Avatar Fri. 2/19/16 1:18am crateslinger:

I suspect Bevis Frond sucks. Nobody's said anything. And I asked like twice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/19/16 1:18am ausmanx:

hi cc. i tend to like eras with The Fall. up to the mid-80s, all is wonderful. the 90s was a bit of a lost decade. then they seemed to find themselves with the millennium. but the last few have dropped off again for me...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/19/16 1:18am Alejandroool:

hah - unfamiliar with Bevis Frond nor The Fall over 'ere...
Avatar Fri. 2/19/16 1:20am coelacanth:

...i guess it's because his singing style has never changed. and he rarely sings any melody,(well, pretty much never) so there's not much else to vary.
Avatar Fri. 2/19/16 1:23am coelacanth:

i do- with a definitely smaller knowledge of them, agree about the eras. i like the first album(?) a lot; and about 10 years ago there was some wfmu airplay of new stuff that excited me.
Avatar Fri. 2/19/16 1:23am crateslinger:

Alejandrool - you should definitely check out the Fall's youtube hits if nothing else. It's a cultural necessity. Like Billy Bragg.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/19/16 1:24am Alejandroool:

gotcha thx. on that note I'll always treasure B.Bragg...
Avatar Fri. 2/19/16 1:25am coelacanth:

i was wrong, of course. "perverted by language" is the oldest one i have. it's very good.
Avatar Fri. 2/19/16 1:26am crateslinger:

  Fri. 2/19/16 1:33am rw:

This Urban Sax sounds like Fred Frith.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/19/16 1:34am ausmanx:

Perverted is wonderful, as is all before it; the poppier stuff with Brix is fine too; and i think Are You Are Missing Winner was the start of a great run of albums through the noughties...
  Fri. 2/19/16 1:38am Nick Name:

hi ausmanx
Avatar Fri. 2/19/16 1:39am coelacanth:

i'll check out some of that era. i may've somehow heard none of it- or a little, but not knowing when it's from.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/19/16 1:40am ausmanx:

hey nick, a damn fine playlist as ever
Avatar Fri. 2/19/16 1:41am coelacanth:

by the way i listened to that Fripp interview. 'pretty enlightening!
Thanks again.

Hello Nick. Trust the Cafe Oto gig went well.

Hi ausmanx. Off to the grind now.
  Fri. 2/19/16 1:42am Nick Name:

Morning Brian, it was pretty amazing to say the least, have a good day at work / weekend.
  Fri. 2/19/16 1:43am Nick Name:

BTW- Brian Turner is going to be writing liner notes for about 6 Fall re-issues, not exactly sure when they are out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/19/16 1:44am ausmanx:

i think the number of Fall reissues almost matches the number of band members by now... hi, Brian!
Avatar Fri. 2/19/16 1:44am coelacanth:

that's cool. he's definitely up to the task.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/19/16 1:47am Alejandroool:
