Listener comments!

  3:00am Adam in Portland:

Well said, Yair.
  3:01am Adam in Portland:

Hahaha, sorry Julie, that comment was intended to come in under the wire during Woody's show.
  3:02am Adam in Portland:

For you, I will say, I'm excited to enjoy your high wire act. :-)
  3:04am listener mark:

good evening/morning Julie and Adam
  3:04am Julie:

Thank you, Adam! Tighrope works SO well for radio
  3:06am Yair Yona (Tel Aviv, Earth):

YEA! Kiss the Anus!
  3:08am listener mark:

my computer is all wonky. or I can't type correctly
  3:09am Julie:

Good morning, Mark. Hiya Yair!
  3:10am Yair Yona (Tel Aviv, Earth):

Hi Julie. we keep bumping into each other ;)
  3:10am fleep:

So this kissing thing, is that for good luck, or ?
  3:11am Julie:

@fleep I prefer not to think about it
  3:13am jaycjay:

Yeah, let's just skip the cat anus-kissing and go right to the lark-catching.
  3:13am listener mark:

Ani lo mevin
  3:14am KP:

Is that picture the kid you found on the subway?
  3:15am Adam in Portland:

Hey, Mark! Hey, Jaycjay!
  3:15am Julie:

No that kid was a boy!
  3:16am KP:

well he had smiths Lps.
  3:17am listener mark:

good night all or good morning all
i'll listen while sleeping
  3:17am Julie:

No Smiths shirt, the lp's were more pop
  3:19am helsingfred:

Ouch I'm late to the party :-( ... AND I forgot my slippers
  3:20am Matt from Springfield:

Good morning Julie!
Kiss The Anus of a Black Cat! With their album If The Sky Falls We Shall Catch Larks--do you think they come up with their names by Mad Libs?
  3:20am Julie:

That's all right, HF! Bare feet are just fine.
  3:21am Julie:

Enjoy, mark!
  3:21am Julie:

@Matt I do like the album title..it is sweet
  3:23am Matt from Springfield:

Dig the 60s sound of "Willow's Song"!

@HF: I think the "surprise" is that they'll throw us in the pool later--you don't want your slippers getting wet!
  3:23am Julie:

Bear feet are also welcome. I am nothing if not all-inclusive.
  3:23am Julie:

@Matt I had meant to play the Faith & The Muse version but saw that I already had so dig the original :)
  3:24am Julie:

Hi Jay! just spotted you there...
  3:24am Brick Van Dee:

Good morning all! Waking up to Willow's Song from The Wicker Man has been quite an experience. That's one of my favourite films!
  3:25am helsingfred:

F&tM / Monica Richards / got any Strange Boutique? Powerful stuff
  3:27am Julie:

Not with me tonight, HF, but I'll dig some out another time. I really know F&M best, and I'm unsure about her new solo stuff, it's very different.
  3:27am Julie:

Good morning, Brick! Did you see the wretched remake? Cage is like I love this movie, let's RUIN it!
  3:28am Julie:

The Wicker Man still gives me chills when I think about it. (the original, the remake for different reasons!)
  3:31am Brick Van Dee:

Never saw the remake - It seemed so pointless and strange. Original one gets more chilling each time you watch it I think...
  3:32am jaycjay:

Heh, I never did see the remake with Cage, because I couldn't see any reason for there be another Wicker Man. So, of course, happy to get confirmation.
  3:32am Julie:

I dreaded it but went just in case..he really convoluted the story.
  3:33am Matt from Springfield:

First time I heard of The Wicker Man--that sounds like a chiller indeed! I'm not looking below the fold for the rest of the plot, I intend to watch it now!
  3:34am jaycjay:

Absolutely, Matt! Just be sure you pick the 1970s version!
  3:34am Julie:

@Matt Yes you should. After 6am :)
  3:34am helsingfred:

Yeah the original WM was tremendous! Then you read the book and you find out they toned down the scene where the local gal tempts him to lose his virginity... it was his only avenue out... and so it goes in the wild Wiccan world, with Christopher Lee in fine style as the wacko head honcho
  3:37am Matt from Springfield:

Yes I'm thinking of watching THAT film while there's light out :)
And the "2006 Canadian/German/American version" is widely panned even on Wiki.
  3:37am Julie:

The Willow's Song scene has to be seen to be believed. That's the first bit I ever saw, on some late night access show.
  3:38am Brick Van Dee:

For those of you who haven't been there, Wicker Man is a documentary about Scotland...
  3:40am Matt from Springfield:

Hey Fredricks! First time seeing you on a late show here ;)
  3:43am Yair Yona (Tel Aviv, Earth):

always felt that Volunteers didn't get the respect it deseved.
  3:43am Julie:

@Matt I did think of hiim after I chose this song. No I don't think I've ever seen him here.
  3:43am Julie:

@Yair I'm finding all sorts of JA albums I never knew existed. All I had was Crown, Bless & Surrealistic
  3:45am KP:

Yay, JA!
  3:46am KP:

hey your math question validations are hard. Belock's re always single digits.
  3:47am Yair Yona (Tel Aviv, Earth):

Julie, this is a wonderful album but really DONT MISS After Bathing At Baxter's , my all time fav of theirs. Bark is brilliant as well, but Baxters is the sh*t
  3:49am Julie:

@Yair I'm exploring them as well, no worries.
  3:50am jaycjay:

Yeah Yair! After Bathing is spectacular, I haven't listened to it for years but I have that vinyl tucked away.
  3:53am Matt from Springfield:

Interesting sound of the Spray Pals--"Folk Wave", perhaps?
  3:57am Matt from Springfield:

It's not even a "good bad" song! Cringeworthy!
Maybe a textbook example what NOT to do...
  4:01am helsingfred:

Y'all might check out "Flight Log", it's a pretty fair sampling of a bunch of Jeff Airplane and Jeff Starship and solo/duo albums.
  4:02am Yair Yona (Tel Aviv, Earth):

Ya-eer. and my pleasure :)
  4:03am Matt from Springfield:

Eliza Rickman!
  4:06am Matt from Springfield:

She LOOKS steampunk as well!
  4:07am Julie:

She looks like me in college. SERIOUSLY.
  4:13am helsingfred:

Chirp chirp ! I'm an inchirpretation !
  4:13am Julie:

That was a little bird that she filled with water.
  4:14am Yair Yona (Tel Aviv, Earth):

she's great!
  4:18am Matt from Springfield:

Wow! First show of this "season" had The Dollyrots' "Brand New Key", coming full circle with Eliza Rickman's (also very different) interpretation of that!!
  4:19am Brick Van Dee:

Wow, this version of Brand New Key manages to surpass the one by The Wurzels...
  4:19am Julie:

@Matt you can imagine how thrilled I was when she told me she knew it!
  4:20am Julie:

@Brick don't know THAT one, will have to check it out. I haven't played the Rasputina one yet either.
  4:20am Julie:

The toy piano is just so perfect for it!
  4:21am Brick Van Dee:

Ah, you've played THIS one before. Amazing song.
  4:22am pierre:

Bonjour Jullie
and all listeners !
just started my new job, can comment, but cannot listen (yet) !
> Arrgh.
  4:22am Julie:

@Pierre Awww eff work! Yay for the archive!
  4:23am Josh:

Loving the show tonight. Much to my distress, I have to tear myself away and go to bed. :(
  4:23am Julie:

@Josh we understand! Your homework is to listen to Eliza on archives!
  4:24am helsingfred:

Suddenly I have this desperate desire to hear a toy piano rendition of Smoke on the Water
  4:24am KP:

She does this great too.
  4:24am Yair Yona (Tel Aviv, Earth):

Pierre - good luck with your new job!
  4:25am Matt from Springfield:

"Crazy" as well!
Bonjour Pierre!
  4:25am jaycjay:

@Pierre, what's worse is what often happens to me while I'm working: can listen, but can't comment!
  4:26am Julie:

Haha next time I talk to her, HF, I will ask.
  4:28am Matt from Springfield:

@Pierre,JCJ: As once talked about on a playlist here, even worse is co-workers "confering" with you during shows, asking or telling you something, and you end up missing a huge chunk of the show (audio and comments)!
  4:29am Julie:

You guys are such pros
  4:30am Matt from Springfield:

Wow, killer percussion/vocals backing track!
This is kind of like Laurie Anderson in the early 80s, just a capella and handclaps/percussion, although hers would have been a lot more "synthetic", vocoder and synth.
  4:30am jaycjay:

Oh yeah, Matt... I've done a "I can't talk right now, I'm really swamped with something, I'll catch you in a couple of hours..." when what I'm "swamped" with is WFMU.
  4:31am Julie:

@Matt she had all kinds of cool stuff with her that we just didn't have time to get to.
  4:32am Matt from Springfield:

Spoken like a true pro, jaycjay!
  4:34am jaycjay:

Having one's priorities in order is the key to professional success.
  4:35am Matt from Springfield:

@Julie: If I ever get to see Eliza live hopefully I'll get to experience that stuff.
@myself: Obviously I meant multi-tracked a capella and handclaps, one of those things where there's no one but the "performer" themselves on every sound.
  4:36am Julie:

She does play with a full band, but not this far from home (she's a Cali girl)
  4:38am Yair Yona (Tel Aviv, Earth):

would love to see Eliza in Tel Aviv. I would offer her some local food and Hummus that I make myself (which I'm proud of, even more then I'm proud of my own music)
  4:41am Brick Van Dee:

I'd heard that there were science fiction novels called "steampunk" but I had absolutely no idea there were "steampunk kids" until just now...Interesting...Are there any steampunk kids out there listening right now?
  4:43am Julie:

One of the bands I play, Abney Park, calls themselves a steampunk band but I have no idea how that applies to music.
  4:44am helsingfred:

IF you want to READ some "steampunk", I can recommend "The Difference Engine". Check out some reviews to get the idea. It's pretty cool.
  4:45am Matt from Springfield:

@Brick: "Steampunk" is a whole, broad school of art: from those sci fi novels/graphic novels where Victorians build futuristic machines (on then-dominant "steam" power), to the self-described "Goth" and "Old World" sounds of music, as well as dress and fashion (nice pic!)
  4:47am Brick Van Dee:

Thanks for the tips Julie, Helsingfred and Matt. I've read Michael Moorcock novels where Victorians build futuristic machines, but that's my limit so far.
  4:52am Julie:

She'll be in Nebraska tonight, if anyone's there :)
  4:59am Matt from Springfield:

Nothing that's GREAT is ever "on the long side"! I enjoyed hearing you two talking! Music and interview, A plus plus!
  5:03am Julie:

@Matt Thank you!
  5:04am helsingfred:

Steampunk? Now for something completely different! Meet ZLAD! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lp_PIjc2ga4 I hope I didn't post this already d'oh
  5:07am jim:

Nothing good happens after midnight!
  5:07am Julie:

@jim my mom always said that to me.
  5:09am scouse:

my garndma said EVERYTHING good happens after midnight
  5:09am Julie:

I like grandma!
  5:10am scouse:

she was a black sabbath fan
  5:14am Matt from Springfield:

@HF: Santo Cilauro, he was one of the creators of the fictitious eastern Europe nation "Molvania"--Zlad is supposed to be Molvania's Eurovision singer! Irwin on this station has actually played "Elektronik Supersonik" before.
  5:15am helsingfred:

@MfS: A-ha, that's who it is eh. Cheers!
  5:18am helsingfred:

FWIW... "The Difference Engine" is a totally plausible alt-history where Babbage got funding and the machine was picked up by the Victorian gov't and turned into an instrument of oppression. Oh and Lady Ada is a doper and the machine... well.. let's not give away everything :)
  5:18am Matt from Springfield:

@HF: No prob, Cheers!
@Julie: OMG, that song is FAMILIAR...and I'm actually brewing coffee RIGHT NOW!
  5:19am Julie:

@Matt Coffee hounds!
  5:20am Matt from Springfield:

Cookie pushers and COFFEE hounds!
Various covers of "Hounds of Love" in the last decade, this is one of the better ones.
  5:20am Julie:

@Matt when you are sleepy later, you will hate me
  5:21am Matt from Springfield:

Tim Powles isn't The Church's original drummer, but he was around in the 80s...and I'm sure he was waiting 20 years to do that drum intro!
  5:22am scouse:

julie's antipodean connection... steve kilbey has a REALLY silly sounding new project out soon too...
  5:22am Matt from Springfield:

@Julie: Later, I'll just get more coffee!
  5:23am Julie:

The reworking of this song is puzzling..the original was so good
  5:23am Julie:

@Matt ahhh so when your heart is racing at bedtime, then you will remember me and get mad!
  5:25am Matt from Springfield:

Well, you did hit the nail on head earlier talking about "too many effects" in Kate's recent albums, this one is also too-processed voice (though the backing track is kinda like "Street Fighting Man", that part is good). But still, the original was so great!
  5:26am Julie:

you read my mind
  5:27am Matt from Springfield:

I went to bed early after a trying Monday, so I in fact got up EARLY! The show you really can set your watch by!

It's difficult to tell with this timeslot, sometimes you catch me up from the day before, sometimes I get up early. (But I wouldn't be drinking coffee at 5 if I intended to nap afterwards) :)
@Julie I did read your mind!
  5:28am Matt from Springfield:

Does that mean Gordon Lightfoot's up next?
  5:28am Julie:

umm nope out of my knowledge there
  5:31am Matt from Springfield:

@Julie: Ha ha, "If you could read my mind"
Is Meghan listening? You have at least a 4-song continuous theme (or logical progression) going on now!
  5:31am Julie:

I've done this before...maybe you didn't notice :)
  5:34am Matt from Springfield:

I also wanted to say earlier, was "Street Fighting Man" on an LP issue? You didn't say on the playlist but the mix sounds a bit different.

Whoa, Rose McDowell and Boyd Rice doing a faithful "I Got You Babe" arrangement! VERY Dark Night!!!
  5:35am Julie:

Singles collection might be different, yeah
  5:35am Matt from Springfield:

Just the soundtrack for troubled individuals! Along with "Cristina" from last week, that was great :)
  5:42am Matt from Springfield:

The Fixx! Yeah, that was prob their biggest hit. This was on my "Living In Oblivion" 80s comp, so I was aware of this one early on.
  5:50am pierre:

@ Yair : Thanks,
@ Matt, Jaycjay : i actually cannot comment much as well :(
@ Julie ; i still miss the live shows, listening/commenting live shows is my little wfmu pleasure.

maybe after a few days, i'll be able. Definitively hope so. In the meantime, have a great day everyone.
  5:51am Julie:

@Pierre this is an American girl singing in French. She wants to know how her accent is. So when you listen back to Nancy...
  5:53am helsingfred:

  5:54am Matt from Springfield:

I was searching for this website earlier, finally found it. I was about to ask if the playlist photo was digitally altered--they have software now that enlarges only the eyes in photos.

The Olsen Twins' one is the money shot, like living anime!
  5:57am helsingfred:

  5:58am Julie:

Thanks everyone! See ya next week! No special guests (that i know of)
  5:59am Brick Van Dee:

Another great show! Goodbye everyone....
  6:00am Matt from Springfield:

Fabulous show! Have a great day everyone!
  2:10pm Van:

Many thanks for another solid show Julie. Impressed with Eliza Rickman! She is new to me...love her voice.
  4:41pm Paul Messis:

Hey Julie, thanks for spinning my songs on your show... much appreciated... thanks P
