I like Anne Briggs

I can't get enough of her. Whatta voice. One of my very favorite voices of the UK folk scene in fact

Thanks Danny! I recognized it immediately.

hi Danny! just now making it over

Heya Flash! Thanks for catching your breath over here

Hi! Please forgive my late arrival!

Just glad to have ya here, Jason!

this Mickey is the absolute groove
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 9/28/17 10:27pm Little Danny:

Agreed. It's such a stoner groove.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 9/28/17 10:29pm JtotheK:

i liked the symphonic four track, very much.
  Thu. 9/28/17 10:30pm MrFab:

Love that Chocolate Watchband. And the Electric Tomorrow, heh, those goofy psych band names. They were probably originally called like the Rumble Teens or the Surfers IV or sumthin, but had to grow their hair out a bit and change their name by '67.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 9/28/17 10:34pm melinda:

I love the psych names too. Rumble Teens would have been good too.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/28/17 10:43pm coelacanth∅:

hi Danny and bleuets

was trying to relocate to the basement between shows, but couldn't turn off Anne Briggs. (even though i have the album!)
then tried to put the dogs to bed but the female had some energy she didn't know what to do with so we played; now i'm hot.
any beer left?
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 9/28/17 10:43pm Little Danny:

Hey everybody, serious question: how are my levels tonight? New audio console here.
  Thu. 9/28/17 10:45pm MrFab:

Audio sounds great, both tunes and talks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 9/28/17 10:45pm JtotheK:

levels are sounding good to me. i'm tuned in via the app.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/28/17 10:46pm coelacanth∅:

levels good i think. your voice maybe a teensie-bit higher than the music? -it works for my situation. i always have to turn up Evan during mic breaks, and certain others i must turn down.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 9/28/17 10:47pm Little Danny:

Hello again coel! Let me rummage around for some suds. It might all be like unopened Yuengling from like 1989 tho.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 9/28/17 10:48pm Little Danny:

Okay! Thanks y'all
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 9/28/17 10:48pm JtotheK:

i have some blatz in the fridge...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/28/17 10:48pm coelacanth∅:

vintage '89 huh? not sure, uh...is it still liquid? okay i'll try it.
  Thu. 9/28/17 10:49pm MrFab:

Wild Records as in the contemporary LA label?
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 9/28/17 10:50pm Little Danny:

Oh for certain. I hear '89 was actually a pretty good vintage for Pottsville's finest
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 9/28/17 10:51pm Little Danny:

Nope! Album title! It was on Tower Records. Just like the Chocolate Watchband
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/28/17 10:54pm coelacanth∅:

do they still make blatz?
Avatar Thu. 9/28/17 10:54pm Dano59:

Unopened Yuengling may be the best Yuengling. I have Sangria here and various beer types in their own minifridge.

Digging the late nite sounds
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 9/28/17 10:56pm JtotheK:

@coel re: blatz - yep, still made! it's a cheapo beer of choice. along with hamms, and high life.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 9/28/17 10:56pm Little Danny:

Dano! Here you are!

And thank you
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/28/17 10:58pm coelacanth∅:

i think yuengling is good beer, for cheap beer. i'd drink it if there were no miller or schlitz around...if there were only bud, pbr, corona, sam adams, micholob, coors (etc) around i'd choose nothing!
Avatar Thu. 9/28/17 11:00pm Dano59:

I was a little late at the gate Danny.
Just looked up the Blatz locator on their site. Apparently widely available in the upper midwest but not here in NY. Ohio, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin ... so far
  Thu. 9/28/17 11:00pm MrFab:

Never heard of Yuengling so I looked it up - only available in 14 states, none near the West. How the heck do you pronounce it? (Rolling Rock is my fave cheapo beer.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/28/17 11:00pm coelacanth∅:

ha i remember hamms too! my older brother relentlessly experimented with beer selection. sometimes that worked out for me.
Avatar Thu. 9/28/17 11:01pm Dano59:

Ying-gling is how we say it. I am not a fan tho I like lagers. Also cannot drink PBR.
Avatar Thu. 9/28/17 11:02pm Dano59:

This playlist is making me thirsty!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/28/17 11:03pm coelacanth∅:

that's odd; blatz used to be available in new jersey, for sure. it's odd too that the oldest brewery in the country is only available in 14 states.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 9/28/17 11:03pm Little Danny:

Fun fact: the night I met my partner of 12 years she and I cracked open a can of ten-year-old Budweiser. Bonding, yes! Delicious, I don't remember!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/28/17 11:03pm coelacanth∅:

(i say ylang ylang, because i'm a weirdo.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 9/28/17 11:03pm JtotheK:

i'm glad that a "blatz locator" exists.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 9/28/17 11:04pm Little Danny:

@Dano: I think it's the close "Ying-Ling."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/28/17 11:05pm coelacanth∅:

there are some beers that i don't mind the taste of but they give me a headache. pbr is one of those.
  Thu. 9/28/17 11:10pm MrFab:

My brother visited Chicago and in a when-in-Rome mood ordered an Old Style.
Waitress: Are you from Chicago?
Bro: No.
Waitress: Er...you don't want an Old Style.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/28/17 11:13pm coelacanth∅:

haha! what's an "old style"?
  Thu. 9/28/17 11:15pm Carmichael:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 9/28/17 11:15pm JtotheK:

was the old style properly krausened?
  Thu. 9/28/17 11:16pm Doctorjazz:

Hi all, listening a bit before bed.
  Thu. 9/28/17 11:18pm Carmichael:

I'm not high enough to enjoy this. But I love a good IPA.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 9/28/17 11:18pm JtotheK:

i haven't listened to this mort garson in a while. gonna have to give it a spin again soon.
Avatar Thu. 9/28/17 11:18pm Dano59:

I'm a Virgo so I am enjoying it. damn my nimble watchmaker mind!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/28/17 11:18pm coelacanth∅:

Danny i take full responsibility. if it were a few hours earlier i might've said "any food left" - for the record!
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 9/28/17 11:19pm Little Danny:

Doctorjazz! Long time!

Os Mutantes played here a couple years ago. Legendary.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 9/28/17 11:23pm JtotheK:

@carmichael - i also enjoy a good ipa. i've been enjoying the 'sessionable' variety lately, the stronger IPAs, double IPAs/imperial IPA's tend to make me sleepy, quickly.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 9/28/17 11:23pm Little Danny:

This fire's already been lit, coel
  Thu. 9/28/17 11:24pm MrFab:

coel: Old Style is the cherished venerable pisswater of Chicagoland.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 9/28/17 11:24pm Little Danny:

Dano: I skipped their show due to my anti-reunion snobbery. Big regret.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/28/17 11:26pm coelacanth∅:

so "old style" is actually the brand. well, considering what some people drink - how bad can it be?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/28/17 11:30pm coelacanth∅:

i think it's all a matter of what one's used to, for the most part. if a brew is of very low quality ingredients and manufacturing method, most people cannot tell...and some beers that are of high quality in those regards, i think taste terrible. (like most german beers i've tried)
  Thu. 9/28/17 11:31pm Dean:

Damn, those first two or three Chicago albums were SOLID.
Avatar Thu. 9/28/17 11:31pm still b/p:

Rolling Rock's apparent success to rebrand itself and climb to a higher stature always made me smirk a little. When I was young it was the sixpack of last resort, budget-wise, because it cost less than two dollars.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 9/28/17 11:32pm Little Danny:

I've never heard them, Dean. Also, hello!
  Thu. 9/28/17 11:32pm Dean:

You have missed out, @LD.
  Thu. 9/28/17 11:34pm Dean:

My motivation being, apropos of snobbery, that I don't generally appreciate Brazilian music. (Exceptions include Villa-Lobos and Badi Assad.) Astrud's cover of the early Chicago tune was good, but it made me yearn for the original.
  Thu. 9/28/17 11:36pm Dean:

As for beer, I'm a total fucking snob. Triple IPAs or GTFO.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/28/17 11:38pm coelacanth∅:

still bp, i remember rr being dirt cheap; but schmits (sp?) was the one we drank the most. $8.00 for 24 pint bottles, and we actually liked it! i don't like rolling rock much; but it really doesn't have that much flavor to dislike!
... ultimately my favorites are higher-end. irish stouts, scottish ales... but i have no problem drinking miller, genesee or schlitz.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 9/28/17 11:39pm JtotheK:

@Dean - triple IPAs, oh my. i had a founders triple IPA... but even though i like them, don't drink triple IPA's on a regular (or semi-regular) basis.

Fabulous Souls! Turning this one up!

Annoy yer neighbors, Jason!
  Thu. 9/28/17 11:42pm MrFab:

Oh no, we've driven off the ladies. Come back gals, tell us about white wine!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/28/17 11:44pm coelacanth∅:

Dean, i don't like ipas. i had one, a few weeks ago - the better in a choice of 4 ipas, that i slightly enjoyed. i don't need to try an ipa again - probably ever.
...and @11.31 agreed! (at least the first one...excellent album)
  Thu. 9/28/17 11:46pm Dean:

@JtotheK: Depends on what you mean by "regular basis," I suppose. Weekly? Hell, yes. Two kinds of beer I generally do not like: watery stuff and pretentious brews (think Dogfish Head) that attempt a kitchen-sink approach and fail to balance the ingredients.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/28/17 11:47pm coelacanth∅:

MrFab the one lady that was or is here doesn't drink alcohol! (doesn't necessarily mean she knows nothing of white, or other, wine)
  Thu. 9/28/17 11:47pm MrFab:

Chicago, when they were still known as Chicago Transit Authority, opened for the Velvet Underground for a few nights at the Whiskey a Go Go, around '69, True fact!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 9/28/17 11:50pm JtotheK:

@Dean - regular basis defined less than a few times a year... in part because they aren't as common as IPAs/double IPAs, and in part because they seem to not be in 6 packs, and because as mentioned earlier ... if I have 1 i need to prepare for falling asleep shortly after.
  Thu. 9/28/17 11:51pm MrFab:

True fact #2: Bob Moog said that "Zodiac" was the 1st West Coast album using a Moog. it was actually all recorded, they went back and added Moogy overdubs.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 9/28/17 11:51pm Little Danny:

I always figured Chicago for a lesser BS&T. Opinions?

p.s. I don't know either of their catalogs outside of the hits
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 9/28/17 11:53pm Little Danny:

Those are both terrific facts MrF. Duly filed in my brain full of useless, esoteric music trivia
  Thu. 9/28/17 11:54pm Dean:

No way a "lesser" BS&T. Similar, yes, maybe by design. But Chicago did some crazy improv Dead-like shit early on. They also wanted to keep the brass front/center, where BS&T seemed to relegate them to mere ornaments of arrangement. Really, the first CTA album and Chicago II are pretty amazing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/28/17 11:55pm coelacanth∅:

chicago transit authority was considerably more badass than blood sweat & tears, i think. (not to dis bs&t)
people don't know this because chicago morphed into such absolute dreck; but it was very good in the beginning.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 9/28/17 11:56pm JtotheK:

whoa, never heard of "the notes" - this is fantastic!
Avatar Thu. 9/28/17 11:57pm still b/p:

As a joke about 20 years ago, on a package store stop a friend picked up Haffenreffer. It was funny, But it was awful.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/28/17 11:57pm coelacanth∅:

yes and i too appreciate these fun facts, MrF
