Scott, you've crawled into my mind. Lately, I've been hankering most for electronic and freaky deaky jazz. Perfect.
Avatar 10:53am βrian:

I thought it was spelled "diquey."
Avatar 11:00am Cheri Pi:

Evan Parker must have a cloaca.
Avatar 11:02am Cecile:

Like the budweiser or Michelob or whatever "fully krausened."
Avatar 11:02am βrian:

Pronounced like "croyzened," I think.
Avatar 11:03am Rev. Turnip Druid:

Evan Parker has a CLOACA GARLAND that he wears, like Kali's skulls, to serve as a warning to lesser players...

I just put in 2 week notice at my job. Wooo!

I assumed it's a playon "kraut-ened"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:06am Scott McDowell:

As in--- "turned into krautrock"
Avatar 11:07am βrian:

I thought it was along the lines of "made sparkling," in the sense of a beverage. Sparkly music.
Avatar 11:07am Cheri Pi:

Damn right he does, RTD. And I know who his "dealer" is *winkitty wink*
Avatar 11:10am Cheri Pi:

I can't reveal the supplier though, if you want cloaca, you'll need to have your own hobo-picnic buddy.
Avatar 11:13am Cheri Pi:

Pelt....this reminds me of something. OH SNAP! according to Progger's Almanac March: 29th, 30th& April: 25th, 26th are the best days to hunt.
Avatar 11:13am Rev. Turnip Druid:

...and I'm not saying what happened to the postman that always crumpled-up subscription copies of Taxidermy Illustrated, but THERE IS a new line of Salaryman-Grade cloaca which is quite fetching.

Avatar 11:24am Cecile:

I bet you could do a great mash up of Christmas in Hollis and Stoned and Starving - just use the words for the verse, and keep the Stoned and starving tune and chorus.
Avatar 11:24am Cecile:

DJ Female Convict Scorpion or People like Us are you listening?

Avatar 11:25am Jennique:

Or Stoned and Starving could be done as a Ramones song.
Avatar 11:25am Cheri Pi:

I think Yo la Tengo should play stoned and starving as their final song for next year's marathon.

good idea Jennique.

Avatar 11:29am Cecile:

turnip, they are talking about putting streetcars in our neighbor hood in the future.

I am thrilled I will get to chant that at random and make sense now.
Avatar 11:29am George from Romania:

Did I heard Chelsea Light Moving's tune?
  11:30am common:

And Broken E String! You're awesome Scott!
Avatar 11:31am Cecile:

Hey, if we're going backwards, you should play some Jawbox.
Avatar 11:31am Cheri Pi:

Ah man, I love the Jabberjaw collection :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:31am tim from champaign:

Yes, Unwound! One of my favorite bands in the 90s. Very interested in getting the pre Unwound RSD rekkid put out by Numero.
Avatar 11:32am Rev. Turnip Druid:

Cecile: EXXXXCELLENT. DC is taking forever (it seems) to install the new H Street line. Meanwhile, nostalgia-photo groups on FB are posting shots of all the groovy streetcars from a very different age of DC. They were all over the place at one point.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:32am Ike:

Hey folks -- Ned's Atomic Dustbin, yay or nay? I was just reading an A.V. Club paean to/article about them. I'm not sure they deserve such attention. ...Jawbox, on the other hand, is a great suggestion.
Avatar 11:33am Cecile:

Nay to Ned's
Avatar 11:33am Cheri Pi:

I love that one song by Ned's atomic dustbin...
  11:34am Marmalade Kitty:

Avatar 11:34am Cecile:

oh, Thurston, just start a black metal band already.
Avatar 11:35am Cheri Pi:

He's too self conscious, and a poseur [sic]
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:36am tim from champaign:

Hmmm, SY leftover? I've got mixed feeling about what I've heard from Thursty's new band. I liked their Germs cover. This one, not so sure about.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:37am tim from champaign:

Man, these lyrics are rough.
Avatar 11:38am Cecile:

I think Lee's band is way more emotional and exciting.
Avatar 11:38am George from Romania:

besides his frequent collaborations with The Thing, the last project of Thursty makes me alive again!
Avatar 11:39am Cheri Pi:

I like these Eat Skull kids.
Avatar 11:39am Cecile:

See, that's greet. I'm glad that he's somehow evoking strong responses again.

But I already gave at the office. Since 1983. I'm taking a break.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:39am tim from champaign:

Me too, Cecile. It seems the LR band feels more from the heart.
Avatar 11:41am Cecile:

Exactly. Really passionate and a little awkward. Like the best of SY.
Avatar 11:42am Cheri Pi:

LR wears his heart on his sleeve, just a simple line like "will you be my friend again?" is enough to make you cry.
  11:43am Marmalade Kitty:

does Kim Gordon have a band?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:44am Greg from Bloomfield:

"United States of New Jersey" is fine. Let's go with that.
Avatar 11:44am Cecile:

not yet. I actually expect her to get in the fashion business. She's a muse of Marc Jacobs.
Avatar 11:45am Cecile:

Greg from Bloomfield, I just checked out your site. Your birds are completely amazing. You are bookmarked!
Avatar 11:46am Rev. Turnip Druid:

At the risk of being ejected from the cool-kid table, I never got SY --- I'm sure I dig a ton of stuff that's compared to 'em, but not 'em. No idea why, the chemistry just isn't there for this old brain.
  11:48am Marmalade Kitty:

that was a great set Scott.. love pelt
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:50am Andrew Waterloo:

SY is a lot like The Fall. Bands with huge catalogues and fans that are dedicated to small sections of those catalogues.
Avatar 11:50am Chris from DC:

Any set with Pelt and Parquet Courts is ok by me.
Avatar 11:52am Cecile:

Yeah, that kinda makes sense Andrew.

I just like more sections than most fans.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:52am Scott McDowell:

Kim has Body/Head which I played a few weeks ago. KILLER.

nice Scott, I'm looking forward to hearing more.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:53am tim from champaign:

Kim Gordon played with White/Light on Tuesday at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago. That looked pretty cool.
Avatar 11:54am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

SY Live were (totally past tense???) always great.
- Loves me guitarnoise chaos/order games...
- Much listenting to Daydream Nation on Sony Walkman - ! : P ...& most Hipsters prob. like earlier more. Hard to relate to not liking SY...To me they were where Smart, Alt, & GuitarNoisy all came together most impressively...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:55am Greg from Bloomfield:

Aw, thanks so much Cecile!
Avatar 11:55am Rev. Turnip Druid:

...like coming of age in DC, mid-80s, and loving hardcore but despising 50% of the dischord output. Doomed to be the token contrarian. But a happy one, usually.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:56am Scott McDowell:

Yeah Kim is in White/Light. Only slash bands. Also rumors of new Free Kitten record.
Avatar 11:57am Qwerty:

Turnip, wasn't that most of us here?
Avatar 11:58am Cecile:

Well, that compliment was for Greg, but same for you, Scott.
Avatar 11:59am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...like - SY were both Smarter (Avant - whathaveyou) & Rawked harder - @ the same time - then most bands most people knew about - including me probably
- but that may not go very far on this here Comments board...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:01pm Andrew Waterloo:

I like SY's looseness. That's something I really didn't appreciate when I was a teenager. Also the fact fact that they've never shied away from the avant garde
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:01pm Greg from Bloomfield:

Great show today, Scott!
Avatar 12:02pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

cheers SMcD, groovy stuff.
Avatar 12:02pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

That Radigue piece is still churning away upstairs. Yummy.
Avatar 12:03pm Cecile:

I thnik that's right Andrew. Even in the most anti-thinking days of the 80s, they were cheerleaders for fine art, literature and experimental music.
