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 Melinda! There's never a bad time to show up!

How are you tonight, Melinda?
Avatar 10:05pm coelacanth∅:

greetings Danny and melinda and flamers not visible, as they're still in the closet!
Avatar 10:08pm Little Danny:

Hi Coel! I am using my limited powers of telepathic persuasion to roust said flamers
Avatar 10:08pm coelacanth∅:

..."big fat woman"?;"organ grinders"?! ...and i was worried about using the term "flamers"!
Avatar 10:10pm Little Danny:

Haha, yes! After 10pm language becomes coarser here, as in life
Avatar 10:10pm coelacanth∅:

(though i think it's understood it's meant in a most affectionate way)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:10pm melinda:

I'm looking forward to a hot bath and my new pajamas, along with the cool flamey tunes.
Avatar 10:11pm still b/p:

Huh... whaazat...? Something told me...to respond to roll call. I had to obey.
Avatar 10:12pm Little Danny:

Still b/p! You behaved correctly
Avatar 10:12pm coelacanth∅:

somehow that sounds wonderful,melinda...even though it's been my choice to have not taken a bath in a decade or 2; and i haven't owned pajamas since before i moved out of my mother's house.
Avatar 10:13pm Little Danny:

You're living the dream, Melinda. That sounds lovely
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:14pm melinda:

I like the Spacemen 3. I think I have a little scrap of paper somewhere with their name on it, from the days of radio listening before clicky stars.
Avatar 10:14pm jaywbabcock:

There is no more WTF fact in music, for me, than this: Pete Kember (aka Sonic Boom) and Jason Pierce (aka J. Spaceman) of Spacemen 3 WERE BOTH BORN ON NOV. 19, 1965, IN RUGBY.

JW! Choice factoid! Same hospital, I bet
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:16pm melinda:

I need relaxation aids, baths are good for that.
Avatar 10:16pm coelacanth∅:

people are always telling me to check something out. huge fire hazard.
  10:17pm Dean:

Bingo, @jaywbabcock! The best I could think of was Bach and Handel, both born early 1685. Two days from today: the birthday of the glorious JSB.
Avatar 10:17pm Little Danny:

@Melinda: I still have a notepad file with names and titles and links to playlists from a '90s job
Avatar 10:18pm still b/p:

Friend of mine works at the flotation tank place. Tempted to try it.
Avatar 10:19pm coelacanth∅:

i'd do that if i could afford to.
Avatar 10:19pm jaywbabcock:

This is an incredible Kevin Ayers song, and clearly the inspiration for Hypnotized, wow!!!!!
Avatar 10:19pm jaywbabcock:

Yes, I think it was the same hospital, will have to double-check that
Avatar 10:21pm Little Danny:

@JWB: The Ayers is shockingly contemporary-sounding. I mean, like, unbelievably
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:24pm melinda:

@b/p I liked the flotation tank.
  10:25pm Dean:

Beg to differ. We might just as easily assert that the Ayers is shockingly medieval-sounding. Ayers is a source of nostalgia for me, not because I heard a lot of his work at the time--I didn't--but because I saw his product and often wondered about it. I've recently been acquiring it. I hear nothing especially "contemporary" about it, and that's just fine.
Avatar 10:26pm coelacanth∅:

starting in jr.high school i kept a notebook by the radio and wrote down everything i liked. then i included things i didn't like or only kinda liked, with notation about why i didn't love it -just to remember. kids were always amazed because i knew every band they'd mention. i stopped sometime in high school but it got pretty big, and i knew all of it in my head. i don't now! and wouldn't like much of what's in the list. i may still have it, somewhere.
Avatar 10:28pm still b/p:

Staffer says some love it, some not so much. One guy had a hard time settling, but after he finally did he emerged in a sort of stoned state for 20 minutes. I think it’d be a guaranteed good button & zone for me.
Avatar 10:32pm coelacanth∅:

i don't take baths because it bores me and i lay there thinking about other things i could be doing. i'd like to try the flotation tank. i never considered that it might affect me similarly.
Avatar 10:35pm coelacanth∅:

while it was playing the Kevin Ayers track never struck me as anything but good. certainly not from another time.
  10:37pm still b/p:

Busby Berkeley and others claimed best ideas and creative mojo in the tub.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:42pm JtotheK:

hi danny. hi everyone. nice summer time tune.
Avatar 10:43pm Little Danny:

Hi Jason! Glad you could make it!
Avatar 10:44pm Little Danny:

Cal Andrews: such an FMU classic
Avatar 10:45pm coelacanth∅:

i was thinking that was like "summer time out"; or "take summer time five"...
Avatar 10:46pm Little Danny:

It was just the start of a weirdo jazz segment, coel
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:49pm JtotheK:

'weirdo jazz segment' -- keep 'em coming! this kenny graham was featured in a book i read recently (and i can't think of the title at the moment...) and is yet another to add to the want list.
  10:50pm Dean:

I say "medieval" not because it invokes another time (though it does that, too), but because it's formally right, and also because it reminds me of the songs troubadours delivered to their "ladies," for example, "now she is mine." But like LD, I have only just started hearing KA. Mostly, I regret not having picked up every album back in the day.
Avatar 10:51pm Little Danny:

J2tK: It's pretty attainable in the scheme of things. And a very good LP
  10:52pm Dean:

I'll add that I really enjoy the fact that a Kevin Ayers song prompts a discussion about the aesthetics of rock.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:54pm JtotheK:

re: kevin ayers -- i'm much (much) more familiar with the musical output of his cousin Roy.
Avatar 10:56pm Little Danny:

@Dean: The two Ayers albums that I've listened to recently (also including Joy of a Toy) have held up incredibly well to my ears. I'd just never taken an interest before due to his involvement with proggy British music. I'm a fool
Avatar 10:56pm northguineahills:

I might be plated in copper, as when I hit the flame, it turned green.

As long as you're not magnesium I think you'll be fine
  11:00pm still b/p:

That should be in a fortune cookie.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:01pm JtotheK:

whoa this tito puente 45 is great. did he do an entire series of philosophy mambo 45s that I need to know about?
  11:01pm Dean:

Agreed, completely. I flipped through the Ayers LPs zillions of times during the '70s and '80s. I might have acquired his work at the time precisely because I associated him with "proggy British music," but his work was too much the singer/songwriter, as opposed to the virtuoso (Camel, Hatfield, Caravan...). Those distinctions are less important to me now.
  11:11pm Dean:

A qualification: "those distinctions" are not as important, BUT I recently listened to Yes's Yessongs, wherein the virtuosity is utterly stunning. So, I do credit remarkable demonstrations of instrumental excellence.
Avatar 11:14pm Little Danny:

Sorry about the terrible fidelity of "She's Gone." Low bit-rate Internet download
Avatar 11:17pm Little Danny:

God I love this version
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:19pm JtotheK:

danny, speaking of soul 45s ... i procured a Charles Sheffield "It's Your Voodoo Working" on Excello recently. area shop gave to me as a freebie since it was my birthday. i saw your post about that 45 on naps, so wanted to share!
  11:19pm still b/p:

Re quality — just thought maybe someone in the engineering seat for the track had decided to play with a glaze of phasing.
Avatar 11:20pm Little Danny:

That's a helluva freebie, Jason! Deserved tho. And happy birthday!
Avatar 11:22pm Little Danny:

Still b/p: I know exactly what you're talking about with that "phasing" effect! It's curious
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:25pm JtotheK:

@Danny - i know! it's a 45 that was on my 'never going to obtain' list.
Avatar 11:25pm northguineahills:

I'm tapering off, thanks LD!
Avatar 11:25pm Little Danny:

Good karma my brother
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26pm JtotheK:

(i'm also leaving out an important fact to the story: there is a chip in the 45. so the first 2-3 seconds are not playable. BUT NO MATTER! the remaining 1:45 seconds play fine!)
Avatar 11:26pm Little Danny:

This'll set ya down easy, NGH. Thanks for being here!
Avatar 11:29pm Little Danny:

By the way that massive funk side from the Vern Blair Debate came from Lubbock, TX. img.washingtonpost.com...
