Nice to hear the men in black. Who needs sleep anyway? :)

Been listening to The Stranglers a lot recently.
  12:35am ledzeppelinsucks:

Stranglers keyboardist Dave Greenfield dies with COVID-19
  12:42am sufferwords:

Stranglers really in a league of their own- debauched and melancholic like know ones business - golden brown - don’t know about your experience but that is the purest expression of the effect ever- sorry Lou you were first but...

Just tuned in, like the intro... bring it on, friend.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:02am TomDash:

hey fred & brycepunk1 - welcome! This set's gonna stretch a bit...
  2:05am Bradley:

Like this one...never heard of this band before. Lots of cool new stuff tonight. Thanks for being here Tom and Scott!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:09am TomDash:

Thanks Bradley! Yeah this band is wild - Great collaborative trio w/ Alan Bishop from Sun City Girls, Sam Shalabi of Shalabi Effect, Land of Kush, etc and Maurice Louca - Egyptian composer/performer.
  2:10am Bradley:

Oh wow, just looked them up and that's Alan Bishop on acoustic guitar bass, and sax! Awesome
  2:10am Bradley:

Ha Tom, posted before I saw your comment...thanks!
  2:13am Bradley:

I didn't realize Alan Bishop was living in Egypt now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:15am TomDash:

yep - for several years. He started another band there with local Egyptian musicians called The Invisible Hands - I LOVE their first dbl LP - beautiful record - they did one LP in singing in English and the same songs for a full LP singing in Egyptian

This Can is a cracker
  2:18am Bradley:

@Tom Awesome, thanks...will check out
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:20am ultradamno:

You know if you do a search for Angel Wild In The Streets the first thing you get is a lot of results for the Peter Fonda movie The Wild Angels, which is pretty cool and has some great music. I'm just going to guess it's not the band with Punky Meadows.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:20am Aitch:

Must check that Peter Hamill from before too, first thought was Electric Six, they must have heard the record.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:22am TomDash:

Hey ultrad - THIS Angle is one-off release from Adam Stonehouse from Portland OR (The Hospitals) - really weird LP. Chris Gunn from Hunches/Lavender Flu is on it too among other Portland freaks - www.discogs.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:24am TomDash:

I meant "Angel" of course...ha!
  2:31am Vincent Nifigance:

Whole lot of favouriting going on.
  2:33am Bradley:

This Moving Gelatine Plates is amazing!
  2:34am Bradley:

This set is on fire ha
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:35am fred:

@Tom: That talk about Egypt made me wonder about Nashazphone. The lacquer plant burning must have thrown a wrench in his operation (he usually prefers records). Did you hear any news lately?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:37am TomDash:

Hey fred - haven't heard any word except I know it really did throw a wrench in things! I think since that happened, with the shutdown happening everyone most pressings are at a stand-still too! Will have to wait and see how things progress...
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:40am ultradamno:

I love Etron Fou Leloublan and Ferdinand (esp. w/Philosophes), they seem underappreciated.
  2:40am Vincent Nifigance:

Jim the Poet in for DJ Time Traveler.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:42am TomDash:

Yeah ultrad - might get to Ferdinand next week...by the way, Next week MIGHT be my FIRST full on live stream in real-time! Did the test today and seems like I'm ready to stream to WFMU live from my basement...fingers crossed for next week!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:44am ultradamno:

Oh, fantastic. I'll keep my digits crossed for that too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:44am TomDash:

Vincent - wasn't sure if Jim the Poet was going to be skeleton-crew broadcasting Time Traveler's show?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:44am fred:

@Tom: If your basement doubles as a wine cave, I hope this doesn't lead to a depletion of your stock
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:46am TomDash:

ha! fred - the wine cellar is RIGHT next to the DJ set up - 2 turntables and a mic!!!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 2:46am ultradamno:

Emily's Vomit...off that discogs page I think you missed and opportunity to pair this with a song called Puke Jennifer.
  2:50am Bradley:

Good night all! Looking forward to live show whenever...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:51am TomDash:

thanks Bradley, until next time!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:55am TomDash:
