A horse is a horse, of course of course. Unless its lost.

Crap, it was 67F/19C here in Brooklyn.
Avatar 9:16pm northguineahills:

Wow, Helen is rather early 90s shoegazey!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:17pm Doug Schulkind:

Early '90s Fugazi?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:18pm Sam Segal:

No kidding, but as I saw someone on the internet say of that record, "Leave it to Liz Harris to make fuzzy guitars sound fresh and vital," or something to that effect.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:25pm Uncle Michael:

Song number one is not a fuck you song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:28pm Sam Segal:

Pardon, @UM?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:28pm Uncle Michael:

It's a Fugazi thing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:32pm Uncle Michael:

Song Number One
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:34pm Sam Segal:

Ohhhhh now things are becoming much clearer.
  9:40pm John from Medina:

This song is PISSING OFF MY MOM...I like it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:41pm Uncle Michael:

This is *excellent*.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:41pm Sam Segal:

Thanks, John! If she hated that one, then you're really gonna love this one.
  9:43pm John from Medina:

She left the house! Rock!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:55pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Yeah - this is way kewl. (That's my phrase tonight.)
...Suddenly hearing all kinds of people obviously influenced by Zappa - not such an odd & unique thing anymore!...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:57pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...like - Dweezil talking to Eddie Van Halen & saying he (Ed) influenced him so much - because it wasn't like he could just do what his father did - & Eddie saying - 'right'...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:02pm Doug Schulkind:

L-O-V-E this.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:03pm Sam Segal:

Was there a time when people weren't influenced by Zappa? (Other than, you know, BZ [Before Zappa])
  10:04pm Bjorn from New Ulm:

I rocked a ponytail until I finished college. Now I wish I had it back.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:04pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Oh - probably not. It's kind of a high bar tho'...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:17pm Uncle Michael:

I wish Zappa had been more influenced by The Mothers of Invention. When he was telling peepee jokes to 13 year-old me, it was funny...then suddenly I wasn't 13 but he was still telling the same jokes. Eventually, I couldn't hear the music over the sound of the snow getting yellowed.
  10:20pm Gayle Roiger:

Pack Jam! It's Return of the Pack Jam! I played that song for my 10th grade English class. Most hated it but it helped me figure out who the cool kids were. Love Programmable Sheiks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:23pm Jeff Golick:

Dig this Ches Smith & Arches.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:24pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

@UM: Musicianship wasn't up to par on Apostrophe?
...really this is great stuff...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:26pm Sam Segal:

Welcome, @Jeff!
@Gayle: I admittedly know next to nothing about Programmable Sheiks, but I found that gem on a compilation put out by Minimum Tape Stacks on the Free Music Archive. Do you have any more info on them?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:27pm Uncle Michael:

That's precisely the point where it became clear that he was as bad a humorist as he was good at music...but that I wasn't willing to get poo flung at me as the price of listening to the music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:30pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Okay - you're not the only one who says that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:33pm Uncle Michael:

Or I should say...when that album came out, I found the humor compelling. Then I went through puberty.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:33pm Uncle Michael:

But I can listen to Uncle Meat and its ilk till the cows come home.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:34pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...I sometimes felt Zappa was cynical in ways - or to degrees I didn't relate to - but I never felt I was having poo flung @ me much...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:35pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...most music felt more organic & less slick in the 60s than the 70s...until Punk of course...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:36pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...I love Clapton til he went solo, basically...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:37pm Uncle Michael:

I think of it that way because I think he was far too intelligent for humor that sophomoric. The only way I can make sense of it is to think he was making monkeys out of his fan. The audience wss the butt of his self-satisfied practial joke that he was sure we weren't smart enough to get.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:41pm Uncle Michael:

Great music tonight, Sam. I'm going to listen in the dark now. Thanks for doing your thing like you do.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:41pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Could be - as he was between High & Low-brow culture a bit. Like - he'd rather fiddle w/ orchestras than play Rock shows. But he said he did it because that's how life is - profound & profane.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:42pm Sam Segal:

Thanks for hanging out, @UM!
  10:53pm Gayle Roiger:

Their sax player is a gal from Brooklyn but the band is based in the lower-east side. I heard her play with a drummer (not in the band) at The Delancey (bar on Delancey) when I lived in SoHo early 2014. Her name is Saija Hall. I talked to her after the show and she gave me a Programmable Sheiks mixtape called "Slam the Door." Return of the Pack Jam was the best song on it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:59pm Sam Segal:

Thanks for the info, @Gayle. That song is a killer. I would love to get my hands on more from them. Had no idea they were a contemporary group.
Avatar 11:07pm northguineahills:

Thanks Sam! Gotta bail!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:07pm Sam Segal:

Safe travels, @ngh.
  11:26pm Seeking Party Freedom:

Great track, baby.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:27pm Sam Segal:

Bless you, @SPF. I knew you'd like the Kinks!
