Familiar to savvy North Americans...

You know, the thing about procrastinating a weekly task is that after 4 or 5 weeks it becomes a chore of cumulative tasks... Anyhow, it turns out the 25 artists I selected that I deem a truly musically aware North American should be... well, aware of lend themselves (with long and some sudden intros and outros and longer than 5 minute tracks) to more complicated mixing than I normally endeavour. 10, 20, 30... up to 60 seconds of crossfade this week at times. A very electronic at first, then rocky then quiet/odd and sombre at the end set. Nice to drift to sleep to. OH YA! AND I MADE IT 3 HOURS instead of TWO!! Have fun and I will also try and keep the discourse to 1X an hour.

OK, I suck...

So, I missed another show and as of 2AM I'll be 4 podcast postings behind. I'm involved in a local theater troupe (Trek Theatre) that does live performances of TNG episodes and this time around I'm concurrently Production Manager, Stage Manager, Sound Tech and making props and set pieces. Also been dealing with a twat I work with at my new job and it's been a record setting hot Summer here in Eugene and I hate Summer and heat... So, I've just not been in the mood to spend any more spare time on 'worky obligations'... The play is now in performance so I have four less days of "must attends" so after tonight's show, before the weekend is out (maybe) I'll have everything caught up... Or not.

Women II

Holy CRAP I'm behind! I  missed a show two weeks ago and the last two times I was in the studio, I forgot to bring my thumb drive so I could take the show home to post on my podcast... I PROMISE that I'll bring the last 3 home tonight and post them by Sunday night. I am involved in a production of a Star Trek TNG episode adaptation (DejaQ) with a local sci-fi theater company and need to make final edits all the sound effects by tomorrow so I won';t have time to post the shows before then... Probably tomorrow night but DEFINITELY by Sunday... So as the title of this post reads, this is the SECOND all WOMEN show I'm doing from the list and it's pretty comprehensive, though I might have missed one or two groups with female vocalists on a song here and there, though I have included such as Lemon Kittens with a Danielle Dax vocal and The Inner Space, the proto-Can group Jaki Liebezeit was in that has a couple tunes with Rosey Rosey (or Rosemarie Heinikel as she was born). Get set to hear two hours worth of GORGEOUS female throat oscillations!!

On a hot summer night...

...would you offer your THROAT.... to the wolf with the red... roses? Yes, it's a FULL TWO HOURS of JIM STEINMAN and MEATLOAF!.... erm.... not. Nothing AGAINST them, of course. "Bat" is one the the most CLASSIC 70's rock albums EVER....! But that's just a ref to the frickin' HEAT! I was in Florence, Or earlier today and though the sun was hot, the wind felt chilly as the arctic blast it was. Like sitting in front of a HUGE air conditioner while outside in the sunshine. Really odd. ANY-how... As opposed to last week's German invasion, this week I feature no bands from Rhineland to realign things. As usual I start out accessible and tonight I'm drifting into the 'iffy' range per really out there tunes a bit early. Usually it's the last 30, 45 minutes but tonight I think it's about an hour or more. Guess the line is fine depending on where one sits on the weird music fence. I AM featuring 3 minimalist composer greats from the 20th century toward the end... Xenakis, Stockhausen and Reich. Ending with white noise basically (literally, actually on a couple levels) with a classic Whitehouse number.

That aughta get your attention on a Friday night... I'm playing only Krautrock acts from the list tonight and not only that... I'm going mostly heavy/jammy. So there'll be heavy blues... a little heavy fusion... some synthesized spacey tunes... and I'm extending the show an hour this week to a mind-whopping THREE!!! (with appropriate exclamation marks) And per the special list, I won't be playing a comedy piece 1/2 way pointy this week either. So, FUCK you laughers with your giggly chuckles!

OK, I didn't do one last week...

...I had a job interview on Saturday and didn't want to stay up that late before hand. I got the job. I'm playing mostly shorter songs this week so can jam in more than usual. I really like tonight's mix. Fun stuff at the beginning and not too much 'noise' to lose the squeamish later on. I'm also adding one of two planned new features this week. I found myself considering what artists would be included on the list from Comedy Recordings? I've decided at the midway point now to play NWW List era Comedy bits and maybe even veer into the 80's and 90's a bit with appropriately based nonsense... Starting it off tonight with a CLASSIC Python bit.
