  9:30am northguineahills:

Very surprisingly nice byt Vladislav Delay Quartet.
  9:34am scott:

Hamburger - nice to see you again here :)
  9:51am Joe:

good morning
  9:51am hamburger / london:

hello yair!
  9:53am pierre:


"Long Rally" ? try the "Awesome Rally"

(is the word awesome, became to used ? Yeah i think so…)
  9:54am scott:

Perhaps, but "awesome" is still awesome!
  9:56am pierre:

you're awesomly right
  9:56am Yair Yona (Tel Aviv):

what about 'neat rally'. works?
  9:58am northguineahills:

One of my favorite Villalobos mixes.
  9:59am pierre:

works for me Yair Yona
  10:01am Cecile:

Play something oppressively depressing that is not Richard Thompson. He's too depressing.
  10:01am Nathan:

Now this is really the sound of the apocalypse! Fooking 'avin' it.. raving to the rapture!
  10:06am Yair Yona (Tel Aviv):

Cecile - RT depresses you?
  10:15am Cecile:

Yeah. I used to be able to handle it when I was younger, but as I got closer to Thompson's age when he wrote those songs, they cut just a little too close to hom.
  10:18am Van:

  10:19am Yair Yona (Tel Aviv):

interesting. he is melancholic, but then again - so is life.

and on a different issue, just bought myself my first Wf-Mu tshirt. Gray. thinking of shooting myself wearing it for my next album cover.
  10:31am pierre:

that 's a good jacket idea Yair Yona!
  10:37am pierre:

the big, massive probem with the wfmu t shirt, is that they do not have the sizes anymore.
  10:48am JT:

Sun Baked Snow cave? Wow. Would love to hear the whole thing.
  10:49am Robert:

Interstation hiss? Guess I gotta tune this better.
  10:54am Lonious Monk:

oui! Merzbow with Boris! perfect (this playlist is really nice - i'm not saying it much, but i enjoy a lot wfmu) -_-
  10:58am BSI:

zee space ritual is upon us.
i approve.
do carry on...
  11:01am Jim:

Wow, Hawkwind on the FM Airwaves!
Thank You Sir!
  11:05am Handsome Harry:

HAWKWIND lives!! Right on.
  11:06am pierre:

rrh Lonious Monk
  11:07am Wendy del Formaggio:

Whoa. I'd always heard Hawkwind being made fun of, but this kicks ass! I wonder if this is during the Lemmy years...
  11:07am pierre:

HAWKWIND !!!!!!!
  11:08am pierre:

it is, Wendy del Formaggio.
  11:08am BSI:

Wendy: yes it is indeedy...
  11:09am Chris from DC:

Oh yes.
  11:10am Wendy del Formaggio:

Thanks, folks! Well, that certainly explains it.
  11:12am Dead Corporate Eyes:

  11:18am yair Yona (Tel Aviv, Earth):

This Coltrane track is so beautiful. Is that Rashid Ali on drums?
  11:19am clyde stubblefield:

damn- i wish i could play like Elvin jones
  11:20am clyde stubblefield:

yes - that is Rashid RIP
  11:21am Cecile:

yair, yes it is. Nels Cline and Gregg Bendian did a wonderful interpretation a white ago.
  11:21am Cecile:

a while ago...
  11:22am clyde stubblefield:

i am going to find that cecile
  11:23am yair Yona (Tel Aviv, Earth):

Cecil, in which album?
  11:28am Robert:

For a few secs. in the background after the end of the last record, I heard faintly some other music, and I thought, this is the music the DJs REALLY listen to while playiing this other stuff for us peons.
  11:28am Cecile:

  11:43am yair Yona (Tel Aviv, Earth):

Thanks Cecile!
  11:48am Cecile:

a unique labor of love. I'd like to see it live some year...
  11:49am bruceleh:

'School Days' is the ultimate rebuttal to audio-fools, this treasuer was recorded live with a MONO tape recorder!
  11:50am Cecile:

And while I was looking it up, I discovered that Rova and the Nels Cline Singers had a release together! Anyone heard it? (I had to order it right away).

bruceleh, talent can overcome lack of tech. The reverse is not always true.
  11:51am Cecile:

I want to say "That's why Robert Johnson's music will outlive T-Pain's" but I've been proven so wrong so often by the public I'm not even going to try and predict the future.
  11:52am yair Yona (Tel Aviv, Earth):

I hope you all know Greg Malcolm's Lacy tribute album, Luther and Lacy. Really amazing interpetations by one brilliant musician
  11:54am yair Yona (Tel Aviv, Earth):

Leather and Lacy, sorry
  11:55am bruceleh:

I've got the ROVA/Nels Cline Singers 'The Celestial Septet', it is very good but pretty heavy listening.
  11:57am Cecile:

I do not, yair.

Heavy how? Very dense and abstract?
  12:00pm bruceleh:

quite dense, only moderately abstract. YMMV
  12:02pm Cecile:

Sounds good. I'm having a pop/rock burnout right now, so that might be right up my alley.
  5:09am matthewkoshak:

the soundtrack to my coming week. so glad you're on this plane of existence Scott. Ushering us all into the halls of contentment... Mountains... man. what amazing stuff. good to see some new material out of them dudes. thanks for the Trane. unreal...
