-someday I think thirsty ear will figure out how to make jazz and hiphop work together (maybe in the forthcoming el-p album they're putting out this fall), but the blue series continuum sure doesn't.
-I first heard pj harvey opening for u2 while sitting in the very last row of an arena. her sound was a muddy indecipherable mess. I was fairly disappointed when I got the cd and it was nice and clean production-wise. that's still a great song, though.
-listening to david bowie's low for the first time yesterday, I realized you can directly trace the lineage of Nikki Sudden through the first half of low. debutante blues, by the way, is the best song ever, no questions asked.
-shotakovich and cummings were played at the same time, to excellent effect. the opening movement of that concerto is nicely ominous, perfectly complimenting the dark overtones of the cummings.
-a caller called in thinking the sightings was merzbow (he actually named a record). not too far off, though...
-upon giving piper at the gates of dawn a good listen in the past couple days, I've decided that momus is almost directly influenced by syd barret's songwriting style. that is my favorite playable momus track, though. we had tickets to give away, which were snatched up.
-the radar secret service was pleasantly dark. nice to hear new music from ohio that's good!
-u can unlearn guitar is (according to don rettman) andy from the bunny brains. this explains a lot.
-richard bishop is a mean acoustic guitar player.
-overall a pretty good show, after a slightly uneven start
-live music from the threats next week, so tune in!
