Ellen Fullman didn't die, did she?
Mickey (host) 7:53:53 AM
Still with us as far as I can tell.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 7:54:06 AM
That's good to hear. I always get a sinking feeling whenever The Sprawl airs so much of one artist...
kentman 7:54:55 AM
Ellen Fullman got my synapses firing nicely this am, thank you, Mickey
Mickey (host) 7:57:59 AM
I asked myself at some point "Why do I only play an hour of someone when they're dead?" Also I've been bingey with my listening habits lately.
Mickey (host) 7:58:10 AM
Thanks kentman!
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 8:01:33 AM
I also missed her Princeton performance. (It's just the sort of droney concert I would have loved.) My coworker saw the event and was suitably impressed.
Mickey (host) 8:04:08 AM
I knew about it, completely forgot, and then remembered when the Worried Waltzer told me how great it was the next day.
kentman 8:25:42 AM
Hearing the Horse Lords live is a must for 2021
Mickey (host) 8:27:08 AM
They are LOUD
kentman 8:27:54 AM
with a purpose, not to be just loud, to entrance perhaps
Mickey (host) 8:31:47 AM
That's the end result, but functionally their guitar tones are very clean, and in order to get that resonating just right, ya gotta crank it up
kentman 8:54:20 AM
Some day maybe you could dip into Mike Watt's, Contemplating the Engine Room?
Mickey (host) 8:55:39 AM
It is a thing I like. I'll note it for the pool.
Mickey (host) 9:06:30 AM
Manu Dibango is dead, Dave
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 9:07:39 AM
😭
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 9:08:13 AM
Not many Manu Dibango tributes on 'PRB...
Mickey (host) 9:09:07 AM
I heard Readie play him a couple weeks back, but I don't know if she was tributing.
jimbeaux 9:11:33 AM
enjoyed the gentle mind flensing provided by Ellen Fullman
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 9:15:46 AM
One of my favorite album covers is Manu Dibango's "Wakafrika", where he is posing like the continent of Africa.
Mickey (host) 9:16:45 AM
They show may be called The Sprawl, but I am here to Flense.
Mickey (host) 9:18:15 AM
That is a a brilliant image Dave, although depending on the size, it can make Madagascar look like a turd.
jimbeaux 9:21:00 AM
the mental blubber has been cleanly separated from its lining
jimbeaux 9:21:38 AM
Rhys Chatham scoured, this week is all about flensing.
Christine Duffy 9:26:24 AM
Good morning DJ Mickey and chat peeps *waves* 👋
Christine Duffy 9:27:13 AM
Did I read something about flensing?
Mickey (host) 9:27:25 AM
Good Morning Christine. They've finally realized this is what I do.
kentman 9:30:16 AM
Good Am Christine and jimbeaux and Dave and thank you Mickey for Am delights
Christine Duffy 9:30:23 AM
Pretty insightful. Also I had to look up flense to make sure I knew the definition. Your show is educational!
Christine Duffy 9:30:35 AM
Hi, Kentman!
Mickey (host) 9:32:22 AM
Thanks everybody. After 10 years, I am still presently surprised anyone enjoys it. It feels like I've found the fine line between community service and committing a crime.
kentman 9:33:13 AM
Been quiet, tried to join Readie's chat last time, got playfully knocked down a notch,all these shows on PRB are educational
Mickey (host) 9:32:50 AM
"pleasantly"
Mickey (host) 9:33:04 AM
but presently works too
kentman 9:34:33 AM
Good taste isn't a crime is it?
Christine Duffy 9:34:50 AM
DJ Mickey, you are too modest. Your broadcasts are far from felonious! 😄
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 9:34:54 AM
In 2020, it may be...
kentman 9:35:12 AM
you're right
Mickey (host) 9:34:54 AM
Oh I am definitely getting away with something here.
Mickey (host) 9:38:47 AM
WPRB: "We are definitely getting away with something here."
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 9:40:32 AM
Or, in the 2020 tradition, "We are playing only the most popular music, and everybody knows that's true."
kentman 9:40:53 AM
We as listening are getting away with something
Mickey (host) 9:50:04 AM
Deerhoof is the best band in the world, by the way.
Mickey (host) 9:51:48 AM
Thanks everybody for the kind words. The next three weeks are all Frank Zappa.
Mickey (host) 9:52:03 AM
So uh, good luck with that.
Mickey (host) 9:52:17 AM
(Frank's still dead, Dave)
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 9:54:26 AM
Looking forward to your deep dive into Zappa's archive.
Mickey (host) 9:58:43 AM
Please do move along to the Clamour Club...
