morning, good!
  9:06am fred:

Good morning Scott
  9:09am Dead Corporate Eyes:

play those golden hits of yesteryear, Scott
  9:10am G:

The Gateway Drug to Bryce :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:10am Scott:

all hits all the time.
  9:10am bruceleh:

  9:13am Dead Corporate Eyes:

sounds like ol' Damon's been up to some good things lately (for a change)
  9:15am Jesss:

Good morning, Scott!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:17am Scott:

Hey jess!
  9:22am hamburger:

herro - woar - stan was playing this earlier - so coo
  9:32am Cecile:

hola, all!
  9:37am Cecile:

Song 2 was really kind of like a Fall song, which made me laugh because it was so big here.

I like the 90s better in retrospect. In the middle of it, I lived on free jazz, GBV, Jobim and electronica tapes my online friend swapped with me.
  9:39am Cecile:

last time I got my hair colored, they had this awful 90s mix - Spin Doctors, Matchbox 20, and, oh that band that started as a Replacements knockoff band and then did terrible ballads...

The stylist, who was in her early 30s and I mocked it mercilessly. it was funny.
  9:40am Cecile:

You know I think the Necks and Dead C are great beach music. The Necks the calm before the storm, and the Dead C the roiling water of the storm.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:41am Scott:

What's the replacements knockoff band? Goo goo dolls????????????
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:41am Scott:

Gin Blossoms?
  9:42am Cecile:

Goo goo dolls!

I actually kind of like 3 songs of the Gin Blossoms. They played to their strengths. They weren't too ambitioous or irritating.
  9:42am bregelesque:

Dang, McDowell. Yr killin' it this morning.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:43am Scott:

  9:44am Ken From Hyde Park:

Good morning. Another fine show, as usual.
  9:44am Cecile:

both of us really groaned when the goo goos came on. It had to be worse being in high school then, you couldn't escape it.
  9:44am pierre:

Tuned in !
as usual !
Bonjour Scott McDowell.
  9:45am hamburger:

90s were werd - googoodolls /

  9:45am Cecile:

Another Radiohead Bread song.
  9:45am breugelesque:

I especially liked that Fuxa track. I'll have to go home today and dig out Green Field 12".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:45am Scott:

I'm super impressed with the consistency of the Goo Goo Dolls. That is hard work man.
  9:45am PKNY:

Great choice on the Radiohead...reminds me I need to up my Radiohead to get ready for the show in Newark next week.
  9:46am Cecile:

hold out my hand something after that...
  9:46am Cecile:

If I have to celebrate consistent mediocrity, I'd rather go eat a McMuffin.
  9:47am Jesss:

IMDB says that "Live Forever" is a "hilarious" documentary. Is it hilarious?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:47am Scott:

Haha. No.
  9:48am Cecile:

David Gates really needs to do a record with Radiohead. Make him watch a whole lot of true crime shows and get depressed. It would be brilliant.
  9:48am Cecile:

unintentionally hilarious?
  9:49am Cecile:

  9:49am breugelesque:

Are you planning to go to Heliotrope, Cecile?
  9:50am Cecile:

Yes, probably.
Saturday night.
I sulked out of it last year and missed Joe McPhee...
  9:54am breugelesque:

I'm very glad he came last year. Musical highlight of the year for sure.
  9:58am bruceleh:

Missing Joe McPhee is always a loss.
  9:59am Cecile:

I know. I've been a fan for nearly 30 years. I was not in a good place last year.
  10:01am bruceleh:

OK, peeps, what's your favorite Joe McPhee album?
  10:01am Cecile:

That sounds like a great show.
  10:03am Mister Gee does London Town in the Sun:

All the details on the Nick Drake song - written by Robin Frederick:
  10:03am Cecile:

I like Oleo, it was the first one I heard, he interprets Albert Ayler and it has the great Violets for Pia on it.
  10:04am bruceleh:

Sweet Freedom, Now What?
  10:05am Cecile:

Yes, that one is great.
  10:05am Mister Gee does London Town in the Sun:

RF writes:
I wrote "Been Smoking Too Long" in the last few weeks of 1966. I was living in Aix-en-Provence, in the south of France, playing around Aix and Marseilles in various clubs. The guitar/vocal demo (see link above) was recorded in early 1967 at a friend's flat.
One evening, after a performance in Aix, a couple of young Englishmen introduced themselves. One of them was Nick Drake

  10:08am Cecile:

She wrote a nice article about him in Mojo a while back, IIRC.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:08am Scott:

Thanks Mister Gee, good stuff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:09am Scott:

Yup cecile, it's linked from that page.
  10:11am Cecile:

She was also A&R director for Rhino. It's interesting to see how she stayed in the music business as a mover and shaker.
  10:16am Mister Gee does London Town in the Sun:

Rhino - fond memories of that label...Cecile
  10:20am Mister Gee does London Town in the Sun:

I grow up in Stratford upon Avon, same time Nick lived there....wish i'd met him, what i do know is i trod the same pavements as Nick, i feel for him all the time, got a great photo of him at small upright piano, at home, in dappled sun, with a roll up, writing a tune - he is suited but no shoes or socks......erm,
  10:20am Jesss:

oh, wow. scott, this is so great.
  10:21am Dead Corporate Eyes:

anytime anyone's played Nackt Insecten it's been pretty awesome, I agree. This is an FMU member's group, I believe.
  10:22am Chris from DC:

His stuff always stands out. This is great.
  10:24am Sandy in Houston:

  10:28am Dead Corporate Eyes:

how I'd rather be listening to this laying in the grass than in a cubicle...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:30am Scott:

Yes, Nackt Insecten is Ruaraidh Sanachan who has engineered many great live sessions here at WFMU. He is also in Moon Unit and runs Sick Head Tapes.
  10:30am Cheri Pi:

Ah it's our own BT's band.
  10:31am Dead Corporate Eyes:

wait, what? BT is in this band?
  10:32am Mark in DC:

Thought Dead Air was a Sonic Youth remix for a bit...
  10:35am Cecile:

thanks, Scott.
  10:37am fred:

Joe McPhee! Thanks Scott
  10:41am Cecile:

Joe mcphee on my b-day.
Oh, well.
  10:42am Dead Corporate Eyes:

well happy birthday, Cecile!
  10:43am common:

tom lax...good man.
  10:44am Cecile:

Wait a week...I'm in no rush, DCE! :D
  10:54am Kat:

thought that might have been the Ex for a minute there..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:55am Scott:

Good call Kat
  11:03am john:

this reminds me of Mal Waldron's Spanish Bitch
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:04am Scott:

Don't know that one!
  11:05am paula pc:

@ Cecile -- HAPPY BIRTHDAY! @ Scott McD -- what a wonderful show today...
  11:05am paula pc:

@ Cecile -- whoops, I'm a week early I guess, sorry...
  11:06am Cecile:

that's ok.
  11:13am john:

what is this talk over music.. i can't place it, but i think it sounds like a four tet track?
  11:13am Nathan:

Four Tet - Ribbons
  11:14am Cecile:

Big friend of the Clash.
  11:17am Dead Corporate Eyes (the real one):

OK, some d-hole is posting as me again. Play nice or go home.
  11:23am Dead Corporate Eyes:

*I* am Spartacus!!
  11:25am Pete Shambler:

Nothing says "summertime fun!" like a Codeine reunion.

For some reason that's exactly what I want to do this summer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:29am Scott:

I consider myself cheerful.
  11:32am Mike East:

Happy Birthday Cecile! Happy Friday, everyone else!
  11:35am max:

  11:36am Cecile:

next Thursday, folks. Same day as the Joe McPhee show in NYC

This song could also be called "desperate rebound sex."
  11:45am max:

  11:45am Marc in Liverpool:

I need some new tshirts. All the wfmu ones I like are sold out in my size. :-/
  11:47am jason:

  11:50am Cecile:

  11:58am Ear and Brain:
