-as always with me and jazz shows, I was really happy with everything
-the maarten altena is definitely not jazz even though it was in the jazz part of the library. it's crazy modern composition that's really cool
-I've played a lot of peter brötzmann recently. not that I"m complaining
-I finally got around to playing go ahead john. you all really should listen to that with headphones at some point. the opening 10-12 minutes are the trippiest thing you will ever experience

-this was my last show from 10-1 on mondays. starting on june 9, I'll be on on mondays from 7-10
-the background was this ultra-cheesy record I found randomly at the rec ex. the beatles + moog synths = wonderful background. I had to stop talking a couple times, the music was so entertaining.
-I was all psyched up to play iron maiden to start my show, and then found that wprb has no iron maiden. so slayer had to substitute
-the testors is a sonny vincent group in the rocket from the tombs/dead boys school of cleveland proto-punk that is so wonderful. this track is their answer to the rockets "ain't it fun," and it's a whole lot better
-frederic rzewski was definitely the find of the day. great avant-garde composition for piano
-I played the sun because one of the guys in the band graduated from my high school 2 years before I did. it's great to see someone I know actually kinda make it, even if it is on a major
-I'm almost convinced about the new pornographers. almost, but not quite
-I really liked the third eye foundation track. I wasn't a huge fan of the most recent album of his that came through prb, but that was good.

Fred Frith/Ensemble Modern - Freeway/Shadow of a Tree on Sand - Traffic Continuer - Winter and Winter

-that piranhas s/t is really good, perhaps better than their latest on in the red. apparently the vinyl version of this album plays from the inside out
-the pink lincolns cover of bowie and the dickies cover of zeppelin were both quite nice. I should do an a show of just covers at some point
-I saw peter brotzmann, hamid drake, and william parker play at Penn last friday. it was an amazing show. I would give a full description, but that would be really long. in short, the three played really well together and created a great cacophony. perhaps the best show I've seen so far this year.
-I thought I had seen every format of vinyl (6", 7", 8.5", 10", 12") and along comes this pung 4". I think the world is going to explode
-the mindflayer song is perhaps the most appropriately titled song ever; the technology... comp had the best album title ever
-the messiaen piece was basically all the quartet playing in unison for 6 minutes, but what a unison 6 minutes it is! I first heard about this piece from reading john szwed's biography of sun ra (who was apparently greatly influenced by messiaen's mysticism)
-I was pleasantly surprised by the track from the boy named sue comp. I have no idea what johnny cash song that is, but damn it was cool
-the walter ruttman piece is probably the earliest ever piece of audio-collage. it's intended as a radio play that depicts a weekend in berlin or some such city. since it was created around 15 years before the invention of magnetic tape, all the sounds were recorded on celluloid film (ie movie reel film); the sounds are represented as various blobs that were then decoded when projected onto a special machine. it's really cool stuff. I heard about this in this really great class on radio that I took this semester along with jannon.
-fred frith is uniformly great. the song confused both me and the dj after me because we both thought he was mixing something into it. nope, just the song.
-calls of note: 1)request for "my favorite" dickies cover. 2) request for a sid vicious song (that I don't know if we had) or the sex pistols. 3) a guy calling up wanting to know where to pick up men at princeton (perhaps the strangest call I've ever gotten short of the guys doing acid in their car). 4) andrew (former classical director) wanting to hear me play a specific station id.
