Rob from Maryland 8:04:02 PM
But you're not a cliche!
Lizbot 8:05:30 PM
Haha, I almost played this tonight!
Lizbot 8:05:53 PM
It was between I’m a Cliche and Oh Bondage Up Yours
Rob from Maryland 8:06:39 PM
Germ Free Adolescents is my favorite X Ray Spex song
Lizbot 8:07:25 PM
Read an article about the doc. Looking forward to it!
john the intern 8:08:37 PM
sick! love a punk set
Rob from Maryland 8:08:49 PM
But the whole album is good
Dana K (host) 8:09:38 PM
hi everyone! thanks for joining me tonight - i too am stoked for the poly styrene documentary
Meaghan Callahan 8:13:17 PM
I like to think you played The Clash for me
Dana K (host) 8:13:54 PM

Rob from Maryland 8:24:16 PM
yoni from kdu 8:27:15 PM
If you're not singing along you're a poser. Sorry, I don't make the rules.
Rob from Maryland 8:27:54 PM
@yoni, I sure wouldn't be singing along in my car, that's for sure
Dana K (host) 8:28:43 PM
true fact, they were actually singing about the show "homicide: life on the street" specifically the character of det. john munch as played by richard belzer
yoni from kdu 8:29:55 PM
Timeline checks out. I believe it.
Lizbot 8:34:25 PM
I had tickets to that Wire show and decided at the last minute not I go. It was probably still safe then, but things were getting weird. Bummed I missed it, though
yoni from kdu 8:35:17 PM
Boys... house?
Dana K (host) 8:37:02 PM
i remember, i was looking forward to seeing you there, and a couple of other friends who dropped out last minute.
Dana K (host) 8:37:24 PM
colin newman made it a point to give me an elbow bump instead of a handshake!
Commie Francis 8:38:05 PM
I was in full on cassandra mode at this point
David Shortell 8:44:36 PM
Is this Monochrome Set song based on the boring Godard movie?
Commie Francis 8:45:06 PM
Dana could you play tarzan 5 "boys game"
Commie Francis 8:45:44 PM
And David yes i think so
Dana K (host) 8:46:30 PM
yeah! and yeah!
Commie Francis 8:51:45 PM
David Shortell 8:51:53 PM
“Alphaville” is also the title of a NYPD memoir published in 2010 that I’ve been meaning to read. It deals a bit with the Lower East Side rock scene--and is cowritten by A-Bones guitarist Bruce Bennett!
Dana K (host) 8:52:00 PM
not the best quality MP3 but we can pretend it's a real record!
Christine Duffy 8:54:10 PM
Hey Dana, great show tonight!
David Shortell 8:54:48 PM
In May 2013, I went on a whim to see the Monochrome Set at Asbury Park’s Saint, where I was ridiculed for having never heard of them!
Dana K (host) 8:54:51 PM
thank you, christine! hope you're well!
Dana K (host) 8:55:11 PM
david, i saw them around that time too - at the record collector in bordentown
Christine Duffy 8:55:27 PM
I was driving for the first 45 mins of your show; fantastic energy. ⚡ You best believe I was blasting & singing along to 999's Homicide!
Dana K (host) 8:56:37 PM
David Shortell 8:59:06 PM
I saw 999 at the Village Underground in 2003. I was a bit miffed when the bassist kicked my backpack across the stage.
Christine Duffy 8:59:37 PM
@David, I would not be best pleased either.
yoni from kdu 9:01:59 PM
Boys ... house?
Dana K (host) 9:04:20 PM
Boyz House
Dana K (host) 9:05:19 PM
The Boyz With The Perpetual Nervousness
Christine Duffy 9:05:38 PM
Dana, if you're still taking requests, how about State Oppression by the Italian band Raw Power?
Dana K (host) 9:07:11 PM
sure! i might not get to it in a bit, it goes better with stuff i have planned for later
David Shortell 9:09:26 PM
I don’t think I’ve heard Raw Power since I saw them open for Dead Kennedys at City Gardens 35 years ago.
Commie Francis 9:09:32 PM
I didn't know this song was a cover for a VERY long time.
Bo 9:09:49 PM

Dana K (host) 9:43:05 PM
A Mice song that isn't Not Proud of the USA!
yoni from kdu 9:43:34 PM
Everything he's done is golden. It's just that he also wrote a perfect protest song.
Bo 9:47:46 PM
Sooo great to hear The Plimsoles again!
Bo 9:48:44 PM
Err, Plimsouls.
yoni from kdu 10:06:00 PM
Wanna play some Cub and keep that Vancouver going?
Dana K (host) 10:06:53 PM
i would, but it's punk time!
yoni from kdu 10:07:40 PM
Oh! I suppose it is. Haven't looked at my watch in a minute but the big hand is pointed at Punk and the little guy is squarely at Time!
Bo 10:07:50 PM

Bo 10:40:53 PM

David Shortell 10:41:03 PM
I bought that Avengers comp in the LP format, so I missed out on some tracks that the CD had (like their cover of the Ventures' "The Joker is Wild").
yoni from kdu 10:41:46 PM
