Christine Duffy 8:05:12 PM
Hey DJ Mike, how are things in the Doomsday Pantry?
Christine Duffy 8:05:25 PM
Hey, Space Cowboy 👋
Greetings and Salutations!
Mike Lupica (host) 8:05:38 PM
Space Cowboy, that's how most of my fiercest critics describe a garden variety Mike Lupica mic break.
Mike Lupica (host) 8:06:06 PM
Hey Christine! Hey MrM! Doing good, hope y'all are getting by in these crazy days.
I’m doing Good Enough! When one is BoNkErS like me, these “crazy” days seem *normal! Cheers!☕️
Space Cowboy 8:11:43 PM
@mike ha!
Space Cowboy 8:12:32 PM
hey christine - @ mike im tired of fierce critics i really am
Mike Lupica (host) 8:13:16 PM
I wasn't counting, but wouldn't be surprised if last week's Columbia House Record Club sticker story was part of a break that topped 20 minutes.
Mike Lupica (host) 8:13:25 PM
If so, I am not proud of this!
Space Cowboy 8:13:51 PM
yeah that was a good one keep up the good work -
Space Cowboy 8:14:35 PM
ahh the columbia record club - some say in a small way wprb is like the columboa record club - bringing inn ew music and for less then a penny
Mike Lupica (host) 8:14:42 PM
This set is shaping up to be a vibe, but don't worry -- pace will be picked up shortly. Weird day, weird week, need a longer windup tonight.
Space Cowboy 8:14:45 PM
Mike Lupica (host) 8:15:03 PM
Great slogan for our next fundraiser!
I’m in a weird mood, so this is PERF
Space Cowboy 8:16:35 PM
yeah this is a fine vibe
Christine Duffy 8:17:28 PM
Space Cowboy 8:18:41 PM
long mic breaks are fine --- who cares - plus under ground dj magazine rated your mic breaks as - as-just swell and better then those other jerks
Factorial 8:22:55 PM
evening, pit crew!
Mike Lupica (host) 8:23:17 PM
S'up, Factorial!
Christine Duffy 8:27:30 PM
👋 Hey, DJ Julia!
Space Cowboy 8:28:00 PM
who are these dudes?
Space Cowboy 8:28:33 PM
and how did i miss them in 1988
Mike Lupica (host) 8:28:55 PM
Beatnigs -- at least a few of 'em later wound up in Disposable Heroes of HipHopracy and then Michael Franti & Spearhead.
Mike Lupica (host) 8:31:06 PM
Though in fairness, I am accessing VERY OLD memory tapes when I say all of that, so probably worth verifying with another source who got more than three hours of sleep last night.
3 hours?! I hope you took a 7 hour nap this afternoon!
Christine Duffy 8:35:26 PM
Thank you for a little cleansing Gang of Four tonic.
Mike Lupica (host) 8:35:50 PM
Heck yeah. Always relevant, seemingly.
You did put together a very nice start to the show! For realz, get more sleep tho!
jimbeaux 8:37:34 PM
Yeah, I got at least 4 hrs sleep! I didn't think MrM slept cuz he's on chat at 4AM Pacific time.
I’ll sleep when I’m dead!
jimbeaux 8:40:05 PM
an early b-hole surfers on A.T.
jimbeaux 8:40:50 PM
also victims family
Factorial 8:42:43 PM
totally solid
Factorial 8:42:58 PM
i wish dylan was this loose
Factorial 8:43:20 PM
or rather - this slinky
Space Cowboy 8:43:37 PM
he is - he's been faking it as a grouchy old dude- secretly he's a real pip
Mike Lupica (host) 8:43:43 PM
Haha, Jimbeaux I think you get a recognition dinner for the first Victims Family reference of 2021.
Mike Lupica (host) 8:44:09 PM
You want slinky? Gonna follow this up with another Dylan cover because WHO DOESN'T LOVE THEMES.
Mike Lupica (host) 8:44:44 PM
Prediction, next song will get this show into gear.
Oh, this is how you follow up Bryan Ferry!
Mike Lupica (host) 8:50:08 PM
I like to think he would approve, but who knows with that guy.
wtf do *we* know?!? 🎶🎵📀🧿
[album title] 😃
Mike Lupica (host) 8:52:40 PM
Yeah, they blew the whole budget on the packaging: https://www.discogs.com/Automatic-Head-Detonator-What-The-Fuck-Do-You-Know/release/6868549
Welp, if each track is 12 mins, then we can understand they were tired by the time decisions for packaging were necessary. 😇
they go hard in the paint
jimbeaux 9:05:11 PM
Q&MP present...Flossie & the Unicorns!
Space Cowboy 9:07:51 PM
quintron and jc superstar somehow that goes together
Mike Lupica (host) 9:08:21 PM
Would give any major organ to hear Quintron and MPC cover the whole thing.
Christine Duffy 9:10:12 PM
Yeah, Kurt Vile 💜
jimbeaux 9:11:06 PM
They would do it as a puppet show.
Mike Lupica (host) 9:11:42 PM
💜💜💜This song💜💜💜
jimbeaux 9:11:58 PM
hey christine!
Mike Lupica (host) 9:12:00 PM
And I would watch that puppet show, Jimbeaux.
Christine Duffy 9:13:46 PM
"I proceeded to brush some stranger's teeth / But they were my teeth." Freaky dissociation there.
Christine Duffy 9:13:57 PM
Hi jimbeaux!
Christine Duffy 9:20:10 PM
Yesssssss! The Fall
jimbeaux 9:22:14 PM
Mahhk E. Smiff...uttering the unutterable.
jimbeaux 9:29:37 PM
sweaty palm record bois
Mike Lupica (host) 9:38:28 PM
Holy hell, I just realized I actually do have another Alternative Tentacles release in the pile tonight. Comin' up next.
jimbeaux 9:42:05 PM
Mike Lupica (host) 9:42:35 PM
The one and only! WHAT. A. VOICE.
jimbeaux 9:43:40 PM
need to dig out Sister Double Happiness
Mike Lupica (host) 9:44:46 PM
They were way underrated. I didn't "get" them at the time, but those records are super. This Black Kali Ma record is from 20ish years ago, and similarly great.
jimbeaux 10:02:26 PM
Franklin! Philly boys. My friend Roy was in the band until 1995.
Mike Lupica (host) 10:06:13 PM
Awesome band! Used to talk to their singer (Ralph) at shows and such. Saw his old(er) band (The Random Children) at a JC Dobbs matinee roughly four million years ago!
jimbeaux 10:09:02 PM
Ralph is alllllriiiggghhht!

jimbeaux 10:27:11 PM
this is twisted...bizarre heartbeat sound
Corage Mike 10:29:11 PM
jimbeaux 10:29:44 PM
guess that's the organ's single RHYTHM button
Mike Lupica (host) 10:30:15 PM
Even weirder when you read about how she was pals with Anton Levey!
jimbeaux 10:31:05 PM
whaaaaaa? guess anton was an organ player, too
Corage Mike 10:31:28 PM
The grass is greener.
Mike Lupica (host) 10:31:53 PM
Hey Mike!
Mike Lupica (host) 10:32:13 PM
Jimbeaux, get ready -- another heartbeat song.
jimbeaux 10:37:57 PM
love those thunkathunka rhythms!
Christine Duffy 10:51:05 PM
Thanks for the Courtney Barnett. 🇦🇺 Gtlreat show tonight, Mike. Sleep deprivation or no!
Christine Duffy 10:51:22 PM
Mike Lupica (host) 10:52:52 PM
Thanks Christine! Definitely been a weird one. So much hanging in the balance right now, hard to sleep, hard to focus. Cheers to NEXT WEEK.
jimbeaux 10:53:33 PM
more hip-shaping kraut next week, pls
Mike Lupica (host) 10:54:21 PM
Damn straight, gotta lose my Covid weight with German exercise records.
