Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 12:35am mariano:

Yep, Granny, that's what I'm thinking.
  Swag For Life Member 12:45am Somm Ben:

This track makes me think of the band Morphine, at lease the saxophone aspect. Hope Inturist is coming to New York some time soon.

Avatar 1:02am Scraps:

Thank you for playing a track from Moving, the way neglected album (and my favorite*) from the Raincoats.

*the vinyl version. Unfortunately, when Geffen issued it on CD, they left off three tracks, with no notice of doing so. Every song of Moving is good, and the crippling of the CD version was (and is) horrible to do on a great album.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:02am TomDash:

these vocal harmonies in Trash Kit make me want to cry...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:03am coelacanth∅:

everything i've heard from this album (and it's getting played all over fmu) is stellar
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:03am Michael 98145:

have to admit i seldom get to hear this program. enjoying it very much! thank you.
  1:03am choggie:

tete-a-tete just wake up you can do it this is like a self-help sum
for Junkies
  1:04am the Canterbury forest monk:

@Scraps Yes, why did they do that to Moving? Odyshape is my favourite, but was very pleasantly surprised when I re-listened back to Moving last year. Trash Kit sound like they might be Raincoats fans, at least from this track.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 1:04am mariano:

Mmm... pizza oysters! @Somm Ben: well, Google Translate deserves the credit. I swear, I'm obsessed with running things through the translator to see what they mean.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:07am TomDash:

hey thanks Michael 98145...glad you can tune in!
  1:08am choggie:

all u neeeeed, take it, break it, lay off the smaaaaaack!
Avatar 1:08am Scraps:

Odyshape is also great. For some reason, the Raincoats' eponymous first album is the one that's usually considered the best. (also very good, but.)
  1:09am choggie:

I don't even use heroin but so far the last three songs remind me of what it might be like to be on heroin. Is this what heroin is like?
  1:09am rw:

Howdy! Trying to figure out how to type out the sound I want to make. Maybe it's better left untyped.
  1:09am the Canterbury forest monk:

@Scraps, yeah, that's my least favourite (as good as it is). Kurt Cobain's opinion may have something to do with the current consensus.
  1:10am choggie:

because if it is, heroin must be the shittiest drug in the entire universe. Not saying I'm a credit, but these songs pull at the dark heart strings of what may be some future addiction
  1:10am critic:

  1:11am rw:

Digging the show. Even if from a distracted perspective. Thanks Mr. Dash!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:12am Michael 98145:

i don't think i'm ever not distracted
  1:12am choggie:

otherwise, oysters on the half with ketchup and horseradish fresh grated, darkish beer and fried sweet potato julianned and seasoned
  1:13am choggie:

....and moar heroin
  1:15am rw:

When I told a friend I'd always been curious about heroin he said, "You don't want to try it. It makes you feel better than you've ever felt. Not something you want to feel."
  1:17am choggie:

I hear ya loud n clear ya non-opiate wanted I smoked opium once and knew it wasn't the high I was looking for, not like I'm trying to forget some sort of real bad thing kind of drug....

haven't heard this in like FOREVER
  1:19am choggie:

Brangg oooon them bannanny peeels!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:19am TomDash:

hey rw, and yeah mary - Frightwig forever!
  1:20am choggie:

Fuck it. I'll smoke anything twice!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 1:22am mariano:

The thing that's probably put me off heroin the most is that it's supposed to make you puke the first time. I'm a month shy of 51 and I haven't thrown up since I was 19, and I don't intend to break that streak! I do recall smoking opium back at some point in my teens, but I was already so drunk and stoned that I can't report on its effects.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:24am Michael 98145:

i don't even do pot cuz it makes my face melt. age is already doing that just fine.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:25am Michael 98145:

on to The Twenties!
  1:25am choggie:

opium won't make u puke if u smoke it and aren't prone to a weak stomach, but...it makes u wonder if weed or hash can come close to yer first hit of it, and if u are prone to addiction, opium wins hands down on the same dopamine rush.
  1:25am rw:

Ha! 98145
Avatar 1:26am Scraps:

That's a excellent couple of fill-ins for your excellent show
  1:26am choggie:

I digress, weed and hash beats Chinese pipe-smokin' HANDS DOWN!!
  1:27am choggie:

don't try this at home Billy
  Swag For Life Member 1:28am Somm Ben:

@TomDash, I appreciate the international tracks. Also hope Diat is coming by NYC
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:28am coelacanth∅:

don't let this get beyond this comments board but if anyone here needs camel poo i can hook you up
  1:28am choggie:

Hey DJ, you're so didn't digress into heroin because of the music you were playing, it did so because of my comments and for that I apologize or not
Avatar 1:29am Scraps:

My favorite Eno song -- and that's saying something!
  1:29am choggie:

it's more like a free association, sometimes music makes me think of what heroin might be like if I was ever addicted to it
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 1:29am mariano:

Last time around it was the roaring 20s, what'll it be this time around? The groaning 20s? @choggie: yeah, I haven't thought about it much, but I guess I'm glad opium dens aren't a thing like in the old days, I can see my dumb ass winding up in one. Weed/hash and coffee have always done the trick for me though.
  1:29am rw:

Gotta run. Later kids. Thanks TomDash! Hear you next year!!

Scraps, I could never have a favorite but if I did...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:29am Michael 98145:

Love this Eno.

Take a look at the covers of Diat's releases...whoa
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:32am coelacanth∅:

i love bauhaus but really their version is barely acceptable ... having known and loved this one so well for so many years before hearing theirs.
  1:33am choggie:

@Mariano where else but a 1920s Chinese Opium Den could you get your opium pipe and Chinese hooker on at the same time?
  1:34am choggie:

Tell me the 20's weren't great and I'll call you a filthy liar to your face.

Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 1:40am mariano:

The 20s were probably a crazier time than now. You could buy pure, reagent-grade cocaine and heroin over the counter. You wanted to bring back a suitcase full of peyote buttons back from Mexico? Maybe a few pounds of hash from the Middle East? None of the government's beeswax far as they're concerned.

sufferwords - this new one harkens back to his ealry Branca days. Really wonderful, but the tracks are loooonnnnggg. I can only find myself playing excerpts...
  1:59am choggie:

@Mariano everything really illegal today was really easy to get, do, and get away with easy or buy in the twenties... anything before 911 goes without saying, was easy.
  2:00am choggie:

the good old days, when the mob was the common douchebag w/ protection and not the government.
  2:01am choggie:

try whistling at a chick these days and see if you don't get slapped with some sort of assault charge....
  2:03am choggie:

I'd whistle at a chick just to get an assault charge I don't give a FUCK! if you ask me, Harvey Weinstein got a raw deal.
  2:05am choggie:

not like I give two fux about what someone thinks about how Harvey Weinstein was given a raw deal....prolly some no-actin' whiney bitch lookin' for fame and thems $dillies$

@Choggie, I'm surprised you're leaving out Silence of the Lambs, the most thematically apropos of your thread

@Choggie (and readers), sorry Silence was Orion

Darren Aronofsky Lives about a mile behind me on a private lake that is known as the cleanest lake in the State of N.Y. last winter he held a huge party on the lake , they rented one of my clients property/home so we had some cool footage.
He hired the Talking Heads to play on the lake. They hired a special effects company to put led lights into the ice. That was mad cool.

Some/most of the DJs on the woofmoo that I listen to are so in tune with the coolest effing music. I get depressed when I hear commercial overplayed music. Even Avant ghetto has me listening to music I was totally ignorant to.

These last 2 songs are the type you never want to end. Kind of like seeing Frank Zappa live when he would just say eff it and jam!!!
