I need the riffs with the fuzz and stank on 'em
Captain Ahab (host) 3:02:57 PM
mmm not as much fuzz and stank today im afraid!
Captain Ahab (host) 3:03:06 PM
more incense and baglamas
Matt-ain Lightning 3:03:45 PM
That works
Richard Lyons (1) 3:03:50 PM
bring it😉
Matt-ain Lightning 3:07:14 PM
Incense & peppermints
Jon Solomon 3:20:30 PM
A few minutes late but tuned in!
Captain Ahab (host) 3:23:05 PM

Jon Solomon 3:26:48 PM
Yes. Work is all wrapped up and I can enjoy your show while I set up for my own!
Ambrose Hughes 3:28:23 PM
Hello Captain! Hello the chat!
Brian D 3:28:56 PM
Yeah! Here we go
Captain Ahab (host) 3:29:31 PM

Matt-ain Lightning 3:35:10 PM
very playful reverb from these bands
Matt-ain Lightning 3:42:38 PM
Lol we are called "Supergroup"
Captain Ahab (host) 3:43:54 PM
Matt-ain Lightning 3:44:27 PM
Matt-ain Lightning 3:44:38 PM
Metal AF
Jon Solomon 3:46:55 PM
Wait, where's your co-host?!
Captain Ahab (host) 3:47:27 PM
Micho is sleeping haha
gboss 3:47:42 PM
Wow, the source of some of the samples used on A Sufi and a Killer
Captain Ahab (host) 3:47:50 PM
Jon Solomon 3:48:47 PM
Probably for the best. Otherwise the show would soon be re-titled Desert Chirping with Micho (feat. Captain Ahab).
Matt-ain Lightning 3:49:36 PM
When Ahab plays desert punk it is Desert Crusting
Captain Ahab (host) 3:51:46 PM
No kidding! I don't think the airwaves could handle that much chirping
Matt-ain Lightning 4:02:10 PM
Matt-ain Lightning 4:06:13 PM
"Orhan Gencebay, he's...ya know, he's a bro."
Matt-ain Lightning 4:07:40 PM
Captain Ahab (host) 4:08:13 PM
Jon Solomon 4:10:06 PM
This one is especially rippin'.
Matt-ain Lightning 4:13:13 PM
I like in Turkish music how the guitarist noodles like hell during vocal verses LOL
Captain Ahab (host) 4:13:27 PM
the audio is wonky on this one, it's not the stream!
Captain Ahab (host) 4:13:47 PM
just for a bit then it sorts itself out
Jon Solomon 4:16:17 PM
Sounds OK to me.
Matt-ain Lightning 4:18:08 PM
This one's like Turk Floyd
Captain Ahab (host) 4:19:22 PM
Pink Turk?
Krista 4:19:50 PM
Reminds me of Darude's Sandstorm
Krista 4:20:49 PM
Lol oops actually had darude on the Bluetooth in the car
fr1dayafternoon 4:20:50 PM
Mesafeler 2? I’ll take 10
Captain Ahab (host) 4:21:17 PM

Matt-ain Lightning 4:21:21 PM
Very Pink Floyd at Pompeii vibes 🌋
Matt-ain Lightning 4:21:41 PM
Lol Krista
Jon Solomon 4:23:50 PM
Woah. Amazing. Would hate to be the DJ who has to go on after this deep dive.
Captain Ahab (host) 4:24:56 PM
may as well just put on micho, I don't think he'd mind
Matt-ain Lightning 4:25:01 PM
No shameless self-promo, Jon 😂
Jon Solomon 4:25:23 PM
Wally Pipp'd by Micho.
Matt-ain Lightning 4:26:17 PM
A lot of this music reminds me of early Fuzz
Matt-ain Lightning 4:27:40 PM
Oh chit Erkin is rockin a turtleneck, he's deep in the Seventies
Rob from Maryland 🌻 🇺🇦 🦀 4:29:08 PM
I'm late to the party as always
Matt-ain Lightning 4:29:40 PM
I told you Ahab there'd be stanky fuzz 😉
TAndy 4:35:21 PM
The extremely rare Wednesday I wake up early enough to catch part of the desert
Matt-ain Lightning 4:35:59 PM
I saw Fleshies play live and they played the exact same song, in between songs, while the singer did yoga poses sarcastically
Jon Solomon 4:36:13 PM
TAndy, sounds like your trip to Princeton was a success!
Jon Solomon 4:37:08 PM
When I saw Freak Nasty they opened and closed with Da' Dip during their ~15 minute set.
Jon Solomon 4:37:26 PM
In between, one other song and a booty shaking "contest."
Captain Ahab (host) 4:39:09 PM
oh man da dip is one of my favorite songs ever, i would have loved that lol
jimbeaux 4:40:04 PM
Whoa...stumbled upon Anatolian Ahab!
Matt-ain Lightning 4:40:23 PM
Captain Ahab (host) 4:40:32 PM
also very impressive given only a 15 minute set lol
Jon Solomon 4:40:39 PM
As I have been known to say (while shaking my head), "I never saw Ramones but I saw Freak Nasty."
Matt-ain Lightning 4:42:55 PM
I never saw Andy Kaufman but I saw NOFX
Jon Solomon 4:43:58 PM
I missed seeing a perfect game at Yankee Stadium because I changed my plan and decided to visit Andy Kaufman's grave instead.
Matt-ain Lightning 4:44:41 PM
Matt-ain Lightning 4:46:09 PM
Wake up TAndy, Wednesday innit
TAndy 4:46:37 PM
I'm tryin
Matt-ain Lightning 4:49:03 PM
love how this song is like unplugged-heavy
Matt-ain Lightning 4:49:48 PM
or as someone said, even Megadeth acoustic is heavier than many heavy bands
Captain Ahab (host) 4:50:19 PM
heavy is a state of mind
Matt-ain Lightning 4:50:52 PM
That's heavy, man
Matt-ain Lightning 4:53:02 PM
nicely recorded percussion
