Listener comments!

  4:35pm Eurocops:

Mmmm, brutality lite
  4:35pm PMD:

Hi guys! Great to hear you!
  4:35pm Joe Steele:

The guy sounds French.
  4:37pm Ken and Brian:

mais oui, Joseph
  4:37pm Liz B.:

Lineup for tonight: Spectrum, Magik Markers, The Bats, then the Vaselines later on...
  4:39pm DBinNYC:

Enjoy Spain:
  4:39pm chris:

hey ken and brian - sounds great!!!
  4:39pm RichardRidden:

diggin this so far...
  4:39pm Cecile:

nice, can't wait to hear that Bats set.
  4:41pm Rob W:

Reminds me of the time Katie and I had to evacuate Portugal because we neglected to realize that the European Cup Finals were coming to town! Couldn't get a hotel room after that. And it was a fun cultural experience watching the first match at a local cafe, etc. Actually the Portuguese were very cool, drinking wine and small glasses of beer as usual, but then the German and British fans arrived for the tournament and all of a sudden these giant beer steins emerged that we didn't even know existed in Portugal! And banners went up on historic statues and things like that, and things did indeed get rowdy, although since we had to leave we missed the real fireworks...
  4:41pm Bradford Eugene LaBonte:

Sounding great!
  4:42pm Cecile:

Holy crap, Rob, that sounds crazy.
  4:43pm Laurie:

The 128k mp3 stream just burped, like, 12 times. It's fine now...
  4:44pm Liz B.:

Thanks for the heads-up on the dropouts, our internets are iffy over here in Barca. We asked for 2 things: power and internet, but both are kinda shaky.
  4:47pm PMD:

I think it all must have burped. I'm on Widows Media Player and it did that too. But all is well now.
  4:48pm Laurie:

Liz, I would have asked for at least three things. Power, internet, and uppers.
  4:49pm G:

Burpage was on realaudio too, fwiw -- multiple two or three second squeally stalls
  4:52pm PMD:

Or power, internet, and nose clips.
  4:53pm Ken:

Yeah, it's gonna keep burping in all formats unfortunately. The Vodaphone 3G card we're using is really crappy. Im amazed it's working at all.
  4:54pm Laurie:

Or disco dust. You know, numb up the nose, stay up all night so you can see all the bands! Right??

  4:55pm DBinNYC:

rumor has it the pollution in Barcelona and Madrid is made up of trace amounts of marching powder...
  4:56pm Ken:

I dont smell any crack in the air. I dont even smell weed. All I smell is fucking sewage.
  4:56pm Cecile:

Vodaphone should put some more money into research instead of those excellent ads that keep winning prizes.
  4:57pm Cecile:

Is weed legal in Spain?

No reason.
  4:58pm chris:

even with the burps the quality is - no wooshing sounds at all
  4:59pm GP:

32K Stream has been fine..no drops....bring me back a t-shirt Liz...please.
  4:59pm chris:

...the quality is great...
  5:00pm PMD:

Karma just hit Ken.
  5:01pm Cecile:

does spectrum play only covers?
  5:02pm Sewage Scent:

We build up your immune system, and as a free bonus remind you of one of your peak life experiences, colonoscopy prep, You're very welcome.
  5:02pm Spanish Galleon:

so then this ISN'T Spacemen 3?
  5:03pm sj:

I agree with Chris: it really does sound fantastic.
  5:03pm nasok:

oh i hope this all gets archived...
  5:04pm ovid:

cecile - no they dont...but i think they enjoy doing um - or they are being a bit lazy
  5:05pm ovid:

spectrum is essentially 1/2of spaceman 3
  5:05pm Cecile:

  5:08pm Spanish Galleon:

ah, thanx Ovid
  5:08pm ovid:

spaceman 3 used to do a lot of covers too
  5:10pm Derrick:

Drop outs are becoming more frequent. :(
  5:11pm chris:

it seems the burps are happening more at the beginning of the songs
  5:12pm Laurie:

So can anyone identify the songs they've played so far? I gather the first was a Stereolab cover...
  5:13pm ovid:

the 2nd was transparent radiation (spa 3)
  5:13pm Cecile:

they did Transparent Radiation by the Red Krayola
  5:13pm Kramerog:

"When Tomorrow Hits It will Hit You Hard" is a cover of Mudhoney covered by Spacemen 3.
  5:14pm ovid:

yes cecile -
  5:14pm Cecile:

And that last song had a quote from the MC5's "Kick out the Jams"
  5:15pm ovid:

the mudhoney song was when tomorrow hits
  5:15pm Cecile:

I actually didn't know Sp3 did that song. I posted at exactly the same time you did, ovid!
  5:16pm Cecile:

Heh, I thought it was going to be War Sucks!
  5:17pm ovid:

and i forgot it was a red krayola song
  5:17pm Laurie:

Their new single is also a cover.
  5:19pm Cecile:

they like doing those covers! Good for them.
A good song is a good song.
  5:19pm ovid:

itsred krayola too right laurie?
  5:21pm Vicki:

  5:26pm ovid:

  5:29pm channeling andy:

O for the love of chronic.
  5:29pm ovid:

im almost scared to tune into 7sd this wed with andy and frangry - but fear never stopped me from listening before
  5:30pm Hmm...:

Fear? or Rubbernecking?
  5:32pm ovid:

fear makes me turn away but then i need tbberneck - i cant help it
  5:33pm welcoming committee:

Welcome to the human race, Ovid.

I loved your Ars Amatoria, BTW. Very dirty.
  5:34pm Cecile:

I'll bet andy and frangry don't do 7sd next Wednesday.
I'll bet he's jerking our chain.
  5:35pm Derrick:

Wonderful set, thanks so much.
  5:36pm Not That Bright:

What's Yo La Tengo called in the Spanish market? I Got It?
  5:38pm ovid:

thats funny ntb - can i use it in a poem?
  5:39pm PMD:

Yeah, that made me laugh too...
  5:39pm Not That Bright:

It doesn't fit daxtylic hexameter, Ov. Has your poetic license expired?
  5:40pm Obviously NTB:

dactylic. stupid fingers
  5:43pm ovid:

if i slip the dmv some extra scratch they usually take care of it for me
  5:44pm Cecile:

yay Bats, I'll miss most of it, but I'll hear a little.
Sounds lovely right now
  5:45pm Yeah!:

That right there is some first degree Battery!
  5:45pm Cecile:

  6:21pm ovid:

  6:21pm AnAnonymousParty:

Check the ratings on your laptop P/S, most of them are switchers and autorange from 120/240, you may only need a connector adapter.
  6:21pm Woodstock Guy:

Tell them not to eat the brown acid for godsakes.
  6:25pm Ken:

Yeah, the problem is actually that our European power strip only had three outlets on it so we ran one through a converter to a larger US poweer strip.. that, plus the fact that we're fucking pathetic.
  6:29pm Janet H:

you can't be that pathetic because i'm still here.
  6:30pm "Pete Gabriel":

When things get big, I don't trust them at all
You want some control, you got to keep it small
