DIY music for the spirit; bummer jams for happy people; terrestrial music for space travelers; punchy, post-punk jitters, synth drones for the mindful; fuzz-drenched, basement rock to sooth the soul...

Tom and then sv, with a Nick the Bard flourish after, what a run.

I do not know Circle. This is terrific.

Good evening, folks! Thanks for tuning in on my last show on the year! "Psyched" to be filling in for the Avant Ghetto!

Uncle Michael - space/prog/motorik band from Finland...amazing stuff

2:15 PM Monday. Still burning.
  10:15pm Carmichael:

Heya Tom. I guess Circle is not Cyrkle.
Avatar 10:15pm JakeGould:

Hope you are Australia’s adorable wildlife the best!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:16pm TomDash:

Hey Carmichael - nope! Circle started in the 90s...mostly instrumental long jams....
  10:18pm Carmichael:

Like way opposite.

macroblot sunday, dig it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:24pm TomDash:

Hey Mike - trying to keep the quest going in Jeff's absence!
  10:27pm steveL:

Eno May have scored some blow before this gig. I’m okay with that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:28pm coelacanth∅:

hey Tom and all
  10:28pm Carmichael:

Maybe during
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:28pm TomDash:

Ha steveL - I'm fine with that too..hey coelacantho, welcome...

Oh yes, it is Tom Dash, back!✨

that Eno concert in '74, they had their vitamins.
  10:32pm choggie:

Juanita and Juaaaaaaan!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:32pm TomDash:

Hey Sarah...happy to be filling in, I also have a show on the schedule, Wednesdays 12-3AM (late Tuesdays) - taking off NYE, but I'll be back on Jan. 8th...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:36pm Aitch:

Strong vitamins indeed. OK if there's no Dead tonight Tom. On a previous planet Jeff had two shows, one entirely Dead based, the other called Just Music - not unlike Marcel's What Was Music, was the one I preferred.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:38pm coelacanth∅:

i've always thought that Brian Eno was a mostly abstainer of drugs, and that part of the reason he didn't want to tour with roxy music (and beyond) was that he didn't want to treat his body so poorly.
maybe i'm mistaken; but then there's no reason to assume coke or any drug at all was necessary to perform in an unusually energetic way.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:38pm TomDash:

Aitch...I LOVE the Dead (60s and 70s), but I will not be playing any this eve...
  10:39pm choggie:

TY Tom Dash for no dead, thank you.
  10:40pm steveL:

Fish: Well said. He does look pretty healthy these days.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:40pm coelacanth∅:

steveL i hope he outlives me
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:41pm Aitch:

I don't hate the Dead by any means, but don't need hours of it. Hell though I'm a Ween fan so what would I know??
Avatar 10:42pm JakeGould:

Well, Vaughn Oliver (the house design at 4AD) passed away today. Wonder if there are any extended 4AD tracks that would fit in this show.

Fish: He May be an alien, so that could work out!

i like more pre-1978 'dead than that i don't like; and, in true non-deadhead fashion very much prefer the studio albums.
...and i like ween
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:45pm coelacanth∅:

steveL shhh...he thinks we don't know
  10:45pm anny:

Hi Tom...id like to wish Marianne Faithfull a happy birthday...any way you could pick one of your favs...thanks from London
  10:46pm Dean:

Let me promote a label/record store in Portland, Oregon, Beacon Sounds. Some marvelous electronically treated noodling. Was there the day after Christmas.

Love the Dead. Ween? Really? People like them? Eno and Pere Ubu I dismiss entirely. To my ear, zero talent.
Avatar 10:46pm JakeGould:

@coelacanth: Sounds similar to Walter de Maria who was drummer for Lou Reed and John Cale’s pre-Velvet Underground band before he decided to ditch the rock life for art: “I said to myself, do I want to go to rehearsal every day and every night, you know, take all these drugs?” www.independent.co.uk...
Avatar 10:47pm TDK60:

I like Quicksilver Messenger Service, and Vaughan Williams too.
  10:47pm Dean:

On the money, TDK60. QMS and RVW...can't lose!
  10:50pm Jerry:

dean...what's your bands name...maybe Zero Effort
  10:52pm Dean:

So many bands, so many names.
Avatar 10:54pm TDK60:

..great wintery tune; woulda liked to be that bassist, letting go..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:55pm coelacanth∅:

was that not Cale?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:58pm coelacanth∅:

...i think it was Cale, but wikipedia just says "arrangements: John Cale"
  10:58pm steveL:

He produced, so, probably yes.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:03pm coelacanth∅:

made me get the album out, cd reissue:
"Nico: vocals, harmonium;
John Cale: electric viola, piano, bass, electric guitar, glockenspiel, bells, mouth organ, bosun's pipe"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:13pm TomDash:

Yeah coelacantho - Cale stayed close with Nico and arranged most of her solo LPs up until "The End" I believe. Such beautiful music when the 2 of them collaborated
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:13pm coelacanth∅:

Jake it's funny how in that article it says "forsook a career with the velvet underground" - when velvet underground really didn't have much of a career!
...i guess it's easy for people now who only know of the band as "influential" or "ahead of it's time" to neglect that hardly anyone liked VU at the time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:19pm coelacanth∅:

i agree Tom...and i really don't like her singing much - but those arrangements; and the haunting quality of her voice was perfect for it (and her lyrics, obviously)
Avatar 11:28pm JakeGould:

@coelacanth∅: Yeah, the way things are portrayed are always “coulda, shoulda, woulda” because — let’s face it — even the most accurate music and art writing is still gossip. Nobody wants to really read about an artist as much as experience the art.

But I do like the choice between doing drugs and never having a decent day-life versus anything else.
  11:33pm Dean:

"Nobody wants to really read about an artist as much as experience the art."

Beg to disagree. Walter Pater writes about, and I read about, artists. His work is an example of aboutness being an art in and of itself.
Avatar 11:35pm JakeGould:

Let this mark the first time someone on the Internet has disagreed with someone else.
  11:36pm Dean:

I disagree. This is 14,272nd time somebody has disagreed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:38pm coelacanth∅:

Dean does that figure include the post in which that figure is stated, or not?
  11:39pm Dean:

Fucking indexicals.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:45pm TomDash:

alright folks, wrapping up here pretty soon...Happy New Year to you all! I will be back on my show (DotDash Radio) Wednesday January 8th (late Tuesday night) 12-3AM. Have a great NYE and see ya on the other side!

See ya next year, folks! Out...
