Yo ho Don-O!

I wonder if anyone has added up the sheer number of hours Don Joyce/Negativland recorded?
Avatar Fri. 2/15/19 6:04pm Don-O:

That's one hell of a mountain to climb.
Avatar Fri. 2/15/19 6:05pm Mr Fab:

Don't worry folks, you haven't switched over to KPFA. You are still in the Jungle Room. It's an old tape.
Avatar Fri. 2/15/19 6:06pm Don-O:

Just ask Tim Mahony (I think), who's been transferring all of Don's tapes to Archive.org....and he's only half way through.
Avatar Fri. 2/15/19 6:07pm spacebrother:

Hey there Don-O!
Avatar Fri. 2/15/19 6:08pm Don-O:

Yea, that OTE wasn't a single. My lizard brain strikes again with the idea of stuff that SHOULD be singles. Everything should be back to CRAP normal.
Avatar Fri. 2/15/19 6:08pm Don-O:

Hey/Yo, Spacebro....and everybody else!!!
Avatar Fri. 2/15/19 6:08pm spacebrother:

Sounds a bit like Prince.
Avatar Fri. 2/15/19 6:09pm Mr Fab:

I seem to recall Thomas Dolby worked on this soundtrack?
Avatar Fri. 2/15/19 6:09pm spacebrother:

Ok, a lot.
Avatar Fri. 2/15/19 6:10pm Don-O:

Yup, that is Mr. Dolby. He did the songs and John Barry did the score.
Avatar Fri. 2/15/19 6:11pm spacebrother:

Dolby is now a music professor at Johns Hopkins.
Avatar Fri. 2/15/19 6:11pm Mr Fab:

I remember going to school with a film biz wannabe who insisted that "Howard the Duck" was gonna be HUGE. oh yeah, gonna be a BIG hit. What a kiss-ass.
Avatar Fri. 2/15/19 6:12pm Don-O:

BTW, Joe Walsh did the "duck" guitar bits on that single
Avatar Fri. 2/15/19 6:12pm Don-O:

I already mouthed off about that damned film here and everywhere else on the net, so I'll reserve my big fat mouth here.
Avatar Fri. 2/15/19 6:13pm spacebrother:

I think I still have the entire run of Howard the Duck comics.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/15/19 6:17pm Rich in Washington:

Don-O! Been listening from the kitchen, cooking up some lunch, bopping to that Disco Galactica theme.
Avatar Fri. 2/15/19 6:18pm spacebrother:

Led Zeppelin would be one to talk about appropriation!
Avatar Fri. 2/15/19 6:19pm Don-O:

Mind you, that's only Part 1. I have yet to brave the seas for pert 2. However, with my luck, I will bump into "it".
Avatar Fri. 2/15/19 6:21pm spacebrother:

I love that Damaskas/ Barnes & Barnes single! Posted it at my short-lived music blog once upon a time. musicnotmusic.wordpress.com...
  Fri. 2/15/19 6:24pm Might Watts Melly:

great start to the show!
Avatar Fri. 2/15/19 6:26pm Don-O:

Thanks. Just keepin' this Crap noisy and confusin'!
Avatar Fri. 2/15/19 6:26pm Mr Fab:

ha, I have a "Green Acres/Purple haze" record, but not this one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/15/19 6:26pm Rich in Washington:

God. I love this single!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/15/19 6:27pm Rich in Washington:

Funny. I was just blabbing on FB about my years as a teenage dishwasher.
Avatar Fri. 2/15/19 6:28pm Don-O:

Right now in New Orleans, the Krewe Of King James (Brown) is parading through the French Quarter. WHY ARE WE DOING INDOORS LISTENING TO THIS CRAP!?!?!?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/15/19 6:29pm Rich in Washington:

There's also this weird record by Tom Cameron called Music To Wash Dishes By that's a peculiar electronic music record that supposedly uses his brainwaves to control parameter's ala Alvin Lucier .
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/15/19 6:29pm Rich in Washington:

This is a fantastic set, Don-O!
Avatar Fri. 2/15/19 6:29pm Don-O:

BTW, dishwasher was one of my jobs while working in the Grand Canyon tourist village in the late 80's. Interesting and browly place.
Avatar Fri. 2/15/19 6:30pm spacebrother:

Damn. I'll make Mardi Gras yet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/15/19 6:31pm Rich in Washington:

I remember this local weekly article about punk rockers in Portland and how many of them seemed to be 'dish ducks' when not doing music, zines, etc. It made me proud that I had a viable crappy job.
Avatar Fri. 2/15/19 6:31pm Don-O:

SBro, I've been to M. G. a few times and tis were a blast...if you can get use to, say, people throwing their arms in your face to catch the beads.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/15/19 6:32pm Rich in Washington:

What a great record!
Avatar Fri. 2/15/19 6:32pm Mr Fab:

Mardi Gras in N.O. is a trip to an alternate universe. Standard laws of human decorum do not apply.
Avatar Fri. 2/15/19 6:33pm spacebrother:

Or throwing up on you. I've been there four times, but mostly on Halloween. I've made some local friends who might be able to tell me how to avoid the tourist nightmare.
Avatar Fri. 2/15/19 6:33pm Don-O:

....I'm thinking of doing a Mardi Gras episode on the final weekend of Carnival season, which would be the first weekend of March. I don't think I have enough INTERESTING related MG records to fill up the hour, but I'm willing to try.
Avatar Fri. 2/15/19 6:34pm spacebrother:

That would kick ass.
Avatar Fri. 2/15/19 6:35pm Mr Fab:

Hey, just some good ol' NOLA brass band or r'n'b should do it.
Avatar Fri. 2/15/19 6:35pm Don-O:

...how many versions of 'Mardi Gras In New Orleans' can one take?! I hope Screaming Jay Hawkins did one!
Avatar Fri. 2/15/19 6:36pm Mr Fab:

Man, i want this record. Doing the dishes is my job at Chez Fab. The missus cooks, I clean up. We got a system.
Avatar Fri. 2/15/19 6:36pm Don-O:

Do do got some street brass band sides. I might pile up on those. See what happens.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/15/19 6:38pm Rich in Washington:

I cook and do dishes. It might be the only thing I'm actually professionally qualified to do.
Avatar Fri. 2/15/19 6:40pm spacebrother:

I went to a club in the projects in N.O. (not knowing that's where it was when the cab dropped us off) to see a brass band. It didn't look like we were welcome at first, but it turned out OK, even though the band never showed up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/15/19 6:40pm Rich in Washington:

I like doing dishes, especially if it's just my own. It's sort of mediative. I used to like doing the dishes at the radio station for some weird reason. Maybe because I didn't know who left them, just that they were collectively left by people on the same mission as myself.
Avatar Fri. 2/15/19 6:41pm spacebrother:

Ah shit! I remember that 'zine!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/15/19 6:43pm Rich in Washington:

If it's anything like this show, do definitely do another singles show! This is fantastic!
Avatar Fri. 2/15/19 6:43pm spacebrother:

Yes. Diggin' the show!
Avatar Fri. 2/15/19 6:43pm Don-O:

All Hail Planet Pimp Records!!!!
Avatar Fri. 2/15/19 6:44pm spacebrother:

That Golding Institute recording is a real room-clearer.
Avatar Fri. 2/15/19 6:45pm Don-O:

The closest I can get to P. P. history: planetpimp.robertgomez.org
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/15/19 6:45pm Rich in Washington:

They're hilarious! I've got that Final Relaxation CD too. It's pretty funny, almost in the same vein.
Avatar Fri. 2/15/19 6:47pm Don-O:

I missed out on that Final Relaxation title.
Avatar Fri. 2/15/19 6:48pm spacebrother:

youtu.be...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/15/19 6:48pm Rich in Washington:

It's a CD, not necessarily connected to the Sounds Of 7"s
Avatar Fri. 2/15/19 6:49pm spacebrother:

I think the only other Golding thing I know about was "Sounds of the San Francisco Adult Bookstores"
Avatar Fri. 2/15/19 6:51pm Don-O:

I got the full set of the Golding 45's. The airport is a personal fave as I use to be a big airport rat, hanging out at LAX in the very late 70's.
Avatar Fri. 2/15/19 6:52pm Don-O:

Oh, if I wanted to carry on with this fandom rock idea, I'd play some tracks from Trekkie 2 OST.
Avatar Fri. 2/15/19 6:53pm spacebrother:

Ah, I see now. Discogs to the rescue.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/15/19 6:53pm Rich in Washington:

I tried to launch my own Sounds of American Kooks series but burned out. Just a CDR thing among radio weirdos. I should dig them up.
Avatar Fri. 2/15/19 6:55pm spacebrother:

Please do!
Avatar Fri. 2/15/19 6:55pm Don-O:

Do Please!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/15/19 6:55pm Rich in Washington:

I love the narration on these!
Avatar Fri. 2/15/19 6:56pm Don-O:

I got only enough time to do side one of this single, so the pain should be short. Enjoy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/15/19 6:57pm Rich in Washington:

Taking this party downtown: The Cratedigger's Lung Adventure Hour is up next: www.wfmu.org...
Avatar Fri. 2/15/19 6:57pm spacebrother:

This is great stuff!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 2/15/19 6:58pm Rich in Washington:

Thanks for a great show, Don-O!
Avatar Fri. 2/15/19 6:58pm Mr Fab:

I believe Mr Golding Institute is the same guy behind Neeeeil Hamburger. Greg Turkington. Interesting guy, did a lot of cool stuff.
Avatar Fri. 2/15/19 6:58pm Don-O:

....and over to Da Creat Digger!! www.wfmu.org...
Avatar Fri. 2/15/19 6:59pm Don-O:

Indeed, fab indeed!!
Avatar Fri. 2/15/19 7:00pm Mr Fab:

Another delicious slab o' crappy goodness, Don-O.
