Hopefully the scenario from Larry Sanders where Artie's gopher nephew takes his boss' exotic ice cream order as "Lar will have the 'Queer's Delight' will never be repeated by some hapless intern for JV and Elvis of KROCK's Dog House (link courtesy Pseu Braun):
Last week the guys from A Brief Smile sat around the Green Room waiting for their time to get some airplay. Little did they know that time was a whole week away.
So the boys came back today, and you finally got to hear them. Bodhi and I both thought the band had promise when we checked out their Myspace page last week. Like I said then: "It's original, it's depressing and I think I love it!"
You, the dear listeners, had your chance to rate the band today. And boy, oh boy... this didn't go well. Why are bass players such tools? Seriously...
Four members out of the five piece showed up today. Three of them were cool, one was a complete waste. He started off the interview saying he USED to listen to Krock (when the station was "good") and that he has never heard the Dog House program which is on "what once a week?". He also says he only listens to WFMU when he turns on the radio. And that's when his ass was kicked out of the studio.
After JV continued his bashing of the pansy bass player, said pansy bass player returned to the studio (un-invited this time) to lambast JV for using the word "Faggy". He says he takes offense to that word, being a boy of mixed sexual tastes (that means he's half a fenook like Rudy), and more or less asked for an apology.
JV was having none of that ish! He explained that by "faggy" he means "dorky" and that his comments had nothing to do with the pansy bass players sexual preferences. Then he kicked him out again.
Oh yeah... the music, right! The studio crew thought A Brief Smile sounded really good, but the listeners weren't feeling it. Looks like no sticky link for them.
In defense of our brothers and sisters behind the mic across the river, I will say I truly admired the KROCK DJ who liked to MC Pavement concerts (MP3). Now that guy had stage presence.
