Little Danny's avatar View Little Danny's profile Options

Postwar atmospherica. High bop modernism and Afro-Latin sounds, twilight exotica and soundtrack moods, soul stompers and weepers, hypnotic R&B and blues, mystical '60s pop, lonely country, lonelier rock 'n' roll, instrumental weirdness, electronic creaking. Bringing worlds beyond into the worlds at hand.

Hi LD, this is great
Avatar 10:04pm Flash Strap:

oh, maybe I was enjoying the stream, actually... this is great too!
Avatar 10:05pm Little Danny:

Haha. Yeah. Getting on to my usual rockiness. Clear skies now
Avatar 10:06pm Little Danny:

And... greetings my friends! Thank you for being here
Avatar 10:07pm hyde:

hi. i just started to type "Thanksgiving" in a text on my phone, and the other spellcheck option i got was "hemorrhaging". that seems ominous.
Avatar 10:08pm Flash Strap:

it's hard, 'cause the stream is usually so good, it'll fool ya

love Salah Ragab, what a great track

Hiya Danny. Hope today finds you well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:09pm melinda:

@hyde creepy but funny
Avatar 10:10pm Little Danny:

Ermgawd, hyde! I'm into it, tho
Avatar 10:10pm Little Danny:

Also love and greetings, all - melinda, zonk, hyde
Avatar 10:11pm hyde:

@melinda i mean, there should be better options in between?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:11pm doctorjazz:

Hey, loving this Sun Ra!!!
Avatar 10:12pm Little Danny:

There you are, Doc!
Avatar 10:13pm hyde:

i'm loving this Sun Ra too. deeply tempted by that Exotica Sun Ra 3LP thing that drops Black Friday
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:14pm doctorjazz:

Avatar 10:14pm northguineahills:

Almost every WFMU dj has played Sun Ra, I'm not kidding. It's the one thing where everyone's Venn diagram overlaps.
Avatar 10:17pm Flash Strap:

Avatar 10:18pm Little Danny:

@hyde: What Flash said!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:18pm melinda:

Someone created a graphic illustrating the most played musicians/groups on FMU and Su Ra was up there with the VU. Yoko Ono was also in the top few, I think.
Avatar 10:18pm Little Danny:

NGH! Glad you made it
Avatar 10:19pm Little Danny:

@melinda: that makes me so proud of WFMU (and its listeners)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:20pm doctorjazz:

I wonder where this box will be available (try to avoid getting too crazy black Friday, easy to do...).
Avatar 10:20pm Little Danny:

And... here comes the left turn
Avatar 10:21pm northguineahills:

I believe it, melinda!
  10:21pm melinda:

So much atmosphere in that last one.
Avatar 10:21pm northguineahills:

Nice, Jesus and the Mary Chain. I saw them play in 95, and Jim was a dick, but the music was amazing.
Avatar 10:22pm northguineahills:

(Mazzy Star opened)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:23pm doctorjazz:

I'm a bit surprised to see Yoko in that list, just because I don't recall hearing her that much. But the other 2 are not that surprising.
  10:25pm zonk ludlow:

Love the concept of hearing Sun Ra & JMC within 15 minutes of each other. Variety the spice of life.
Avatar 10:26pm hyde:

sorry, i was texting. you guys don't know about the Sun Ra Exotica LP??? sunramusic.bandcamp.com...
Avatar 10:28pm hyde:

and of course it's Irwin Chusid related, so the WFMU Venn diagram is complete
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:28pm JtotheK:

hi everyone. i was also unaware of upcoming sun ra boxset - thank for the heads up!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:29pm JtotheK:

enjoyed the track from supersonic jazz earlier. that lp gets regular spins.
Avatar 10:31pm hyde:

i think it's not a box set. i linked to the bandcamp, but i believe there is also a triple LP release as well
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:32pm JtotheK:

yeah, reading now - triple LP release. cool!
  10:34pm melinda:

I don't hear yoko as much either.
  10:34pm melinda:

I love Southwestern exotica
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:41pm JtotheK:

neat clark terry tune.
Avatar 10:42pm Flash Strap:

@Hyde: wow i really want that 3LP man damn
Avatar 10:42pm Little Danny:

Hiya Jason! It is indeed
Avatar 10:46pm hyde:

@Flash Strap ditto!
Avatar 10:47pm Little Danny:

Hey y'all! Can you hear like a weird sorta rumbling sound in the background, or is that just at my end?
Avatar 10:47pm Flash Strap:

this is good LD, never heard this version

usually called Chuncho
Avatar 10:48pm Flash Strap:

I hear it
Avatar 10:48pm Little Danny:

Close, but "Chuncho" is a different composition, Flash!
Avatar 10:49pm Little Danny:

Cable issues, a radio show. Ugh.
Avatar 10:53pm Flash Strap:

it's definitely different, but they share exact passages
Avatar 10:58pm northguineahills:

I always dig Harpers Bizarre!
Avatar 11:01pm hyde:

Sandy Coat was great!
Avatar 11:08pm hyde:

ok, i'm out. good night friends!
Avatar 11:13pm northguineahills:

knight hyde!
Avatar 11:14pm Little Danny:

Reluctantly bidding you adieu, hyde. See ya around!
Avatar 11:17pm northguineahills:

I thought that was the Harry Smith anthology. I just figured out how folk/blues worked when vol, 4 came out, and it sent me on an infinite rabbit hole.
  11:17pm Chris Brown:

Enjoying the song by Ramblin’ Thomas (Logansport, Louisiana!) and the rare treat of catching the Cool Blue Flame live.
Avatar 11:19pm geezerette:

Hiya, Danny & all!
'Night Hyde!
Loving this set.
Avatar 11:20pm Little Danny:

Hi Chris! I'm glad, and I'm glad you made it for the live experience!
Avatar 11:20pm northguineahills:

Fahey was the apostle the brought me to the promised land.
Avatar 11:20pm Little Danny:

Geez! Was wondering where you'd been!
Avatar 11:22pm northguineahills:

One of the few Fahey recs I don't own.
Avatar 11:22pm Little Danny:

@chris: Did we used to work together in archaeology by any chance? There was a Chris Brown from that time and place in my life, too
Avatar 11:23pm geezerette:

Ha, wondering myself!
  11:33pm Dano59:

I can get behind a group called The Deceptions.
Avatar 11:34pm northguineahills:

I was thinking the same thing, Dao59!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:35pm JtotheK:

the singers, soul patrol - both new to me, both great!
Avatar 11:36pm Little Danny:

Dan-OH! I never really thought about the name before. It is kinda anti-social now that you point it out
Avatar 11:36pm Little Danny:

Excellent, Jason - and thanks!
Avatar 11:36pm northguineahills:

and JtotheK echoes my sentiment.
Avatar 11:37pm Little Danny:

p.s. Soul Patrol is pretty easy to scoop up nowadays
  11:38pm Chris Brown:

@LD, not I...though I think we’re in the same profession now. Archivist in Shreveport, Louisiana, here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:40pm JtotheK:

yeah Danny, was looking around for Soul Patrol. added to my want list -
which continues to grow more unwieldy...
Avatar 11:41pm northguineahills:

Ok, I'm out. Had, fun see y'alls, ayanasuminasai, tomadachi!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:45pm JtotheK:

cheers NGH!
Avatar 11:48pm Little Danny:

@Chris: yes we are! Archivists are my people
Avatar 11:49pm Little Danny:

NGH, thanks for being here! Until next time
  11:54pm zonk ludlow:

Cheers Danny. Happy to be taking some Walt Harper vibes into the remainder of my afternoon. So long until next time.
Avatar 11:55pm geezerette:

Great show Danny!
Thanks, and good night all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:57pm JtotheK:

enjoyed the tunes. thanks danny! good night, everyone.
Avatar 11:57pm Little Danny:

Thanks geez and zonk! And enjoy your afternoon, zonk. It's like 4pm where you are, right?
  12:00am zonk ludlow:

Surely is Danny, maybe time for a tipple to start the weekend.
  12:01am zonk ludlow:

Goodnight to all tonight's attendees.
