"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

At first had a gleeful heart attack that this was the 1971 german psych "electric mud" but this will do just fine. Carry on..

Nice logical step for eric from Black Dice. (nice lad).
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 9:43am Wild Neil||Peace All:

I used to live with the Mexican Mud Band. Grateful Dead cover band from Syracuse. Did their light show using 2 overhead projectors. I asked Blues Traveler if I could do theirs, but nothing ever came of it. I could have, though. My tiny piece of fame.

@RTD-I checked out Electric Mud. Pretty cool! One guy on their said "it was good soulful rock without falling into the territory of a prog wank fest'" or something on youtube.
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 9:46am Rev. Turnip Druid:

It's a great LP, W.Neil, if a bit impossible to find these days.

Of course I'm perfectly at home in prog-wank-fest territory.

th'POPPY.
  Fri. 11/9/18 9:47am Andrea in Jersey City:

Helloooo!
  Fri. 11/9/18 9:48am Cleanville Tziabatz:

Wow, I didn't know anybody remembered Andrew Poppy these days.
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 9:54am Wild Neil||Peace All:

@RTD-ditto regarding the PWF territory. Yes, King Crimson, etc. all good for me. Even Styx!
  Fri. 11/9/18 9:55am karen eliot:

Hey John - another solid soundtrack for the morning coffee! Love that Alien City record!

I remember a copy of this Alien City record came through the store I worked at once. I never listened to it, and now I'm wishing I had.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 11/9/18 11:08am Gavin in Bristol:

Is it still morning there?
  Swag For Life Member Fri. 11/9/18 11:08am TomDash:

Hey @The Oscar - there was a bootleg (I think?) floating around that was pretty cheap, but not sure if its still around...
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 11:08am Chris from DC:

Yes!
  Swag For Life Member Fri. 11/9/18 11:09am TomDash:

@TomDash Thanks! I may have to seek it out the next time I'm in one of the psych-friendly record stores in my area.

Donovan?
  Swag For Life Member Fri. 11/9/18 11:20am PNX:

At work next week, I have to be interviewed live for an "employee spotlight". One of the questions is "What is your favorite music?" Please kill me.
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 11:22am coelacanth∅:

PNX - "good music".
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 11:22am John Allen:

PNX, tell them you are particularly drawn to people who helped start formidable groups, but then splintered off to do their own thing
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 11:23am TDK60:

PNX: Tell 'em you like music in E-major.
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 11:26am Chris from DC:

This is your chance to get a plug in for FMU.

Also, yay, Man.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 11/9/18 11:26am The Oscar:

@PNX Take out your phone and play "Wake Up" in its entirety.

(man borrowing from Neil Young there)
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 11:29am TDK60:

"When You Walk in the Room" -- have always loved The Searchers' version of this. Beautiful jangle.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 11/9/18 11:29am The Oscar:

Whoa-- LOVE this version of this!
Avatar Fri. 11/9/18 11:31am Chris from DC:

Where did this Robert Bensick come from? Nice.

Well, I saw them in England, so I suppose it wasn't cheap.
