Stan played a band called Chrystal Wizards Of The Cosmic Weird, which he said reminded him of a combination of Monster Magnet and a forgotten psychedelic band from 1969.
February 7. Gaylord Fields played some Tropicalia: "Camelo" by Tom Ze' from Grande Liquidacao. Os Mutantes backed Ze' on this 1968 album, which is rare and pricey. You'll find this when, like me, you decide you just have to have it Bonus: modern Ze' on The Fro Show With Jesse. Ze' is now on David Byrne's Luaka Bop label, but to learn about the 60s Topicalia movment Ze' came from, read this article.
Benjamin Walker filled in for Liz Berg with Too Much Information. He opened as follows: Charlie Feathers, Mark McGuire, Mogwai, and aTelcino.
Contradictions on Toothpick Rhythm with Betsy Nichols, who played a song by George Jones called 'Don't Let The Stars Get In Your Eyes. "I Let The Stars Get In Your Eyes" then sang Goldie Hilll. And know what? It's the same tune. I know little about country, but do know country songs have passed through generations, mutating over time. Perhaps the process is comparable to blues standards: the early Rolling Stones cover Muddy Waters but the lyrics change. An educated guess from a crawling-before-walking cowboy.
Let's finish with music I actually know: On Underwater Themepark, Meghan played, Galaxie 500 and Moonshake. Moonshake were an incredibly dark 1990s art rock band: picture the singer in a 1940s club spotlit in black leather. Lots of great genres drowned in Clinton-era grunge.
Enough. There are many unturned stones, and next week's concept is hopefully under ONE of them !
