Wow. Frow! Was not expecting that...but was just wondering today when i might hear it again. (After Irwin played some Bobby Ace this afternoon)

Holly in NC:

And Pip Proud?! And Tuxedomoon? !! Getting ready for 30 min. commute, back as soon as possible.

btw, I happily, gladly, purchased hardcover Big Day Coming (I have the receipt!) but later also dled free epub version. What are your thoughts?
Marmalade kitty:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:19pm

totally fine with it, and thanks!, though had no idea either a hardcover or a free epub existed! (but not supposed to talk about work-type matters through WFMU channels.)

Holly in NC:

ooof, so embarrassed re hardcover mention, was thinking of Will Hermes - but was not lying re SOFTcover of BDC. Both above-referenced books live in shelf directly above my head, once I get home.

Yeah, free epub exists.

No more talk. Zip!

Nice to see (hear) you pop up in this spot Jesse J. Onward!

Space Lady reissue is reissue of the year, I can't imagine anything w/b very close. Assuming Space Lady counts as 2014 reissue?

Anybody remember when Pete Seeger's banjo was stolen and then the thief returned it?
Marmalade kitty:

Thanks for the pete seeger set!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:38pm

yay! glad you appreciated it! was worried it was too corny for WFMU. but, hell, we probably wouldn't be here without pete.
Marmalade kitty:

I'm only learning of Petes body of work since his passing..respect.
Marmalade kitty:

Pete Big heart! :)

@jj: Lotsa FMU Dj's did Pete tributes this week, no one thought it was too corny. You're right about none of this being here - not in quite the same form anyway - without him.
Interested to hear how important he was to you when you were a lad.

it was first time to me listening Pete Seeger. but it didn't sound corny at all. i did very quick study about him and i could imagine how he influenced people. i also respect him.

Jesse! Good to see you

When poorly educated, scared, sick, hopeless flag-waving nitwits are all about "Amurica" - I weep, as in my world, Pete S.speaks for that America, and I cannot parse how things have gone so wrong.
Avatar 11:08pm

The electronic birdsong is beautiful.

@Droll: roger that. " Live at Roulette" is way cool
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:12pm

"live at roulette" *is* way cool, but there it was never quite playing by itself, always with stuff mixed on top of it. recommended: noveller.bandcamp.com...

Santos L Halper:

Grayfolded vinyl, eh?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:14pm

yup! out in april. on temporary loan from the label.
  Swag For Life Member 11:15pm

oh man i haven't listened to grayfolded in forever
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:17pm
Santos L Halper:

Seems like the kind of thing that would benefit from the CDs extended time, but maybe it divides up nicely...

jj: thanks for clarifying!

Pete from Boston (and NJ):

Still snowing.
Avatar 11:23pm

I also think it's odd to be anachronistic about LP -- it had a maximum running time, but you always got a second side with the same running time for free...

haven't heard this in forever, not really something I would want to have to keep flipping over though...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:25pm

for the record, we're back into ranaldo & noveller here...

@Drool: Ha! that's one way of looking at it. It gave musicians a standard "frame" or format of 22 mins, a distinct "break" or intermission, and another 22. So they thought in terms of how to fit that format. Sometimes a "limitation" like that is actually liberating. In the Cage/Eno sense of having an arbitrary rule imposed that you have to work with giving you focus. I miss the age of vinyl LPs for a few reasons

jj: thnx for update
Avatar 11:31pm
Holly in NC:

@Santos L Halper - whenever I see your avatar I grin wildly - thank you.

As soon as those little guitar squiggles turn up in the J. Oswald, it reminds me of a Dead "Space" set
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:34pm
Santos L Halper:

That's the best way to grin holly : )

P-90: there's a reason for that...
and agreed about rules being useful, along w/the occasional oblique strategy

Yeah, I caught that, right after I posted, the "resemblance" became more explicit

They're playing my song

" @drool" = major belly laugh here. @droll, I hope you also thought funny!

Pete from Boston (and NJ):

There is an unhung, framed Lee Ranaldo poem staring me in the face here in the dining room. it is apparently incumbent on me to hang it.
Avatar 11:41pm

P90, The 23 minute limit is both cause and effect. Eno's Oblique Strategies is a way more interesting framework!

@Droooll: Just thinking the "one or more disks of 22/22" format meant that whatever anyone was doing, they were at least all confined to that same single constraint. A universal shape for everyone's version of the ritual, an enforced community, in that one respect. "We all liked THAT album, looking forward to hearing YOUR album, meanwhile here's MY album"
Avatar 11:54pm

P-90, With streaming we've hit infinite length, which is the degenerate case of using up other people's time. On YT you've only got about 15 seconds to make an impression. Having said that, one of the best-selling albums of all time (Dark Side of the Moon) spends the first 25 seconds as a near silent thump-thump -- nothing happens.

Pete recap in the Coda, a must

So long, Jesse!

It's been good to hear you again
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:56pm
Santos L Halper:

Drifting along into the night...thanks Jesse!
Avatar 11:56pm

Thanks, JJ, for all the Pete (and other goodness).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:58pm

Great set Jesse ,, peace !!

Sure, that was a statement itself at the time, DSOM's "long" heartbeat-only intro was a daring deconstruction of the whole way pop records were done, that kind of thing at the beginning is a head's-up that what comes after is gonna break some rules, wants to be listened to differently than the typical LP

Thanks, jj
catch you next time, be good
