Flash Strap's avatar View Flash Strap's profile Options

This is where all of culture and all of time are collapsed into one seductive portal and viewed through the panoramic lens of the exotic. Come and embark on an armchair-travel virtual-voyage to the heart of timeless darkness and beyond; embrace the numinous monolith of the exotic immensity. Let us find that place where hybridization meets its destiny as pure fantasy. Let us become observers observing those others who are ourselves. You wear your mask and I'll wear mine.

Let's go, round two. Some really groovy stuff planned for this evening
Avatar 6:58pm hyde:

hello!
Avatar 7:01pm hyde:

y'know, i just noticed that i have a swag for life icon. embarrassingly, i'm not a swag for life member. so my icon is a lie.
Avatar 7:02pm Flash Strap:

Hi Hyde!
Avatar 7:03pm Flash Strap:

wonder how you swung that?
Avatar 7:06pm Flash Strap:

Some more Gato! might be the only one tonight, but it's a good one
Avatar 7:06pm Flash Strap:

Gato for my friend Hyde the one eyed cat
Avatar 7:07pm hyde:

i don't know? it was not there before i put in that pledge that got you to the goal, i feel like a fraud.
Avatar 7:07pm hyde:

good ol' Gato
Avatar 7:09pm Flash Strap:

when I look at the marathon console – ok I don't understand how any of this actually works with any great confidence – but when I look at it, you definitely pledged more than 24 bucks. Might want to double check it
Avatar 7:11pm hyde:

oh ha, crap it looks like i managed to pledge 24$ a month. whoops.
Avatar 7:12pm Flash Strap:

haha glad we looked into that
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:13pm doctorjazz:

hey all!!!
Avatar 7:14pm Flash Strap:

I remember when you pledged, I don't think it was like that at the time. may be an error

Hi Doc! come on in!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:17pm listener james from westwood:

Heya, all! Happy to be catching Piero Part Due!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hi, how's the exploration going?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19pm doctorjazz:

@Hyde, contact Joe McGasko, send an email, I've done similar stuff, accidentally pledged more than I had intended, he'll straighten it out.
Avatar 7:20pm hyde:

@doctorjazz thanks, it's cool. it'll get straightened out i'm sure.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:20pm listener james from westwood:

Oh, good Taxi Driver reference! (If a bit horrific in the context of the film!)
  7:23pm zonk ludlow:

Evening Evan and fellow explorers. Looking forward to the next couple of hours of wall to wall craziness.
Avatar 7:29pm Flash Strap:

Hi James! Ken!and ZONK! Great to see you all!
Avatar 7:30pm Flash Strap:

Love these vocals, so intoxicating
Avatar 7:33pm Flash Strap:

lot of righteous psych guitar this set
Avatar 7:46pm Flash Strap:

next couple are real doozies
  7:59pm zonk ludlow:

Doozies indeed!

Hi chums!

Hi Melinda!
Avatar 8:14pm hyde:

yay, melinda!
Avatar 8:15pm hyde:

oh, i love this song
Avatar 8:17pm Flash Strap:

Me too, Hyde
Avatar 8:18pm Little Danny:

Racing to catch up but OMG so much Umiliani goodness is now distracting me
Avatar 8:19pm Flash Strap:

This might be Zeudi, I don't know for sure
Avatar 8:19pm Little Danny:

It's kinda stupid to pick favorites but Umiliani might be mine from that Euro soundtrack world
Avatar 8:19pm Flash Strap:

LD! Great to see ya pal
Avatar 8:20pm Little Danny:

Likewise!
Avatar 8:22pm Flash Strap:

I'd say definitely but then Roger Roger and Nino Nardini show up and make a pretty good effort too... still, he's virtually uncontested in my book
Avatar 8:22pm Flash Strap:

though, I guess RR&NN have to team up to compete
Avatar 8:23pm hyde:

i love all those guys, but y'know. Morricone.
Avatar 8:24pm Little Danny:

I mean, geez, Morricone and Piccioni. High output + high quality
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:24pm melinda:

Funky.
Avatar 8:24pm Little Danny:

Hi Hyde! You were there first with Ennio
Avatar 8:26pm Flash Strap:

I love 'em too, but I picked my favorites and I meant it! But yeah, Ennio and Piccioni are pretty much god-like genius level great
Avatar 8:26pm Flash Strap:

SO funky
Avatar 8:26pm hyde:

@LD ha. the Morricone thing is just superhuman--i honestly have no idea how he managed that output. it's just unreal to me.
Avatar 8:29pm Little Danny:

Superhuman, indeed. Morricone I think is the only composer who could keep up with the prolificacy (word?) of some of the top Bollywood composers
Avatar 8:30pm Flash Strap:

it's astounding what he accomplished. he's incredible
Avatar 8:32pm Flash Strap:

prolificacy! I was trying to remember how to conjugate prolific, that's it
Avatar 8:33pm hyde:

i think it's actually profligacy
Avatar 8:33pm Flash Strap:

remember this theme, it will be on the test in the last set
Avatar 8:34pm hyde:

(i'm kidding)
Avatar 8:34pm Flash Strap:

oooh, is it? damn
Avatar 8:35pm hyde:

i do remember this theme. this whole soundtrack is really good.
Avatar 8:35pm Flash Strap:

haha right. right! man, I'm a little in over my head typing all this Italian and trying to chat
Avatar 8:36pm Little Danny:

This right here, at 8:35pm. This is the shit!
Avatar 8:36pm hyde:

@Flash jeez. tell Doug that you need to hire an assistant.
Avatar 8:38pm Flash Strap:

oh, but i'd miss the constant frantic typing
Avatar 8:38pm Flash Strap:

I agree LD. hell yes
Avatar 8:41pm still b/p:

Thissa all very nice, though the last one was only left channel. I gotta plug in the little kitchen speakers for cooking accompaniment.
Avatar 8:42pm Flash Strap:

this is easily one of my favorite records of all time here. not as lush, but so intense
Avatar 8:43pm Flash Strap:

Hi B/P! I think he just put the birds on the right channel, but not sure. Never found a great rip of that LP, sadly
Avatar 8:49pm Little Danny:

@hyde: inspired now to scramble to grab some Ennio for tonight's show
Avatar 8:50pm Flash Strap:

oh NICE. Let's keep it in the famiglia tonight
Avatar 8:51pm hyde:

@LD good luck narrowing it all down to one track!
Avatar 8:52pm Little Danny:

Geez I know, my eyes/ears are swimming
Avatar 8:54pm Flash Strap:

this one is so intense
Avatar 8:57pm still b/p:

Will you hear my confession? Prompted by some discussion during Bodega Pop a couple weeks ago, I looked at Umiliani info, and then....then....I watched some portions of Svezia, Inferno E Paradiso. I did.

btw -- Watching something less infernal earlier this evening, Morricone was a Jeopardy answer.
Avatar 8:59pm Flash Strap:

How was it, b/p? like a Mondo doc, but more boring? or super sexy?
Avatar 9:01pm northguineahills:

Phew, got here in time!
Avatar 9:02pm Flash Strap:

NGH! great to have you in the room!
Avatar 9:05pm still b/p:

I'm not sure there's ANYthing super sexy in it, even when it lingers on what's supposed to be. It is weak doc style. I hopscotched and stopped to snicker at some silly bits. I do think viewing the full load of it would be trying, even with the period-flavor interest.
Avatar 9:20pm Flash Strap:

Yeah, a lot of them are that way. La Ragazza Dalla Pelle di Luna sorta sucks too.

I think the first time I had that experience was when I finally got ahold of Vampyros Lesbos, which sort of like Argento but also not very good
Avatar 9:20pm Little Danny:

GodDAMN! Officina Stellare!
Avatar 9:21pm Flash Strap:

yeah that one is all-time great!
Avatar 9:27pm coelacanth∅:

greetings Evan, Explorers
Avatar 9:28pm Flash Strap:

coelacanth! hello o swimmer among us
Avatar 9:28pm hyde:

yay, coelacanth!
Avatar 9:30pm coelacanth∅:

Yay hyde!
Avatar 9:30pm coelacanth∅:

damn if this isn't my relief right now my home
Avatar 9:32pm Flash Strap:

glad you're with us
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:33pm melinda:

hi coel
Avatar 9:35pm Little Danny:

No way. Kraftwerk totally stole this Moggi track!
Avatar 9:36pm Flash Strap:

I know right
Avatar 9:37pm coelacanth∅:

...melinda!
Avatar 9:39pm Little Danny:

Although did Moggi maybe come after? I have so many Umiliani records I wanna chase down right now but can't due to le impending show
Avatar 9:39pm coelacanth∅:

oh yeah - the man machine was 1978
Avatar 9:40pm coelacanth∅:

("we are the robots")
Avatar 9:41pm coelacanth∅:

(...i think "spacelab" from the same album also borrowed from that.)
Avatar 9:41pm Flash Strap:

This record is so good. Mille E Una Sera (Thousand and One Nights)
Avatar 9:43pm Flash Strap:

honestly, it's been so long since I listened to Man Machine, I need to go back and compare
Avatar 9:44pm Little Danny:

@coel: It was actually "Radioactivity" from '75's Radio-Aktivität, so Kraftwerk mighta gotten there first
Avatar 9:46pm coelacanth∅:

i think it's conceivable that, given the elementary synthesized sounds in question, it was convergent evolution.
Avatar 9:46pm Flash Strap:

They were insanely influential, that makes sense too
Avatar 9:47pm still b/p:

Some of the sounds in L'Invasione reminded me of Welcome to the Machine elements.
Avatar 9:47pm Flash Strap:

@C: or that, which is my favorite theory, generally, when these things come up
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:47pm melinda:

Great show Evan! I could listen to this for hours. I mean more than the standard 2 or 3.
Avatar 9:48pm coelacanth∅:

LD it's weird -i have that album too, but don't know it. (i guess i got it after my initial infatuation with kraftwerk had simmered down?)
Avatar 9:48pm Flash Strap:

thanks, Melinda! That's pretty much why I had to split it up into 2 shows, there's so much good stuff
Avatar 9:50pm hyde:

there wasn't that much crossover from your old Umiliani comps either, which is amazing
Avatar 9:52pm northguineahills:

Thank you so much for this Umiliani retrostpective. Faved for further research!
Avatar 9:52pm coelacanth∅:

haha Evan, well it's the friendliest treatment to the artists we like! ...though it's really okay by me that people influence each-other. i often notice though, and have to point it out - because i'm a geek; but also to give credit where credit's due.
Avatar 9:53pm Flash Strap:

Thanks Hyde, I worked pretty hard on that actually
  9:53pm zonk ludlow:

Gratsi Evan. Illuminating as per usual. Have a great week until we meet again.
Avatar 9:53pm hyde:

i mean, i love those comps. so i wouldn't have complained ;)
Avatar 9:54pm still b/p:

Great wiring, this show had. Thanks!
Avatar 9:54pm Little Danny:

Another brilliant show, Evan. You have great tastes in Umiliani! (Of course we all knew that)
Avatar 9:55pm Flash Strap:

I feel the same way, C.

My great pleasure NGH

@hyde, I think there's a decent amount of crossover with the comps, but very little with that early show I did here which was basically an abridged version of the comps
Avatar 9:55pm coelacanth∅:

i ought to cook some dinner.

...Thanks Evan! def have to check out what i missed here.
Avatar 9:56pm Flash Strap:

Thanks LD! and thanks Zonk! and mucho gracias b/p
Avatar 9:56pm Little Danny:

Friends! Hope you'll continue the odyssey with all of us next on the Cool Blue Flame: wfmu.org...
Avatar 9:57pm hyde:

thanks!
Avatar 9:58pm Flash Strap:

Enjoy that dinner, C., and the archives when you get to 'em... it's all good stuff!

Thank you Hyde! glad you enjoyed, being one of our top Umiliani fans
