short-lived, yet legendary, 12 piece, then 7 piece all-girl bass and percussion band who ruled Manhattan nightlife for a brief period in 1981 and 1982. Their sound has been described as “13 girls fighting over a cowbell.” The band often fought with each other verbally and physically in the studio and at shows. The groups rowdy behavior, theatrical stage antics, props and costumes and awkward time signatures were what the New York underground loved most about them.

I was going to play this song on my phone as soon as I got into my car but lo and behold it's already on my radio
Ambrose Hughes 5:06:40 PM
Howdy Lizbot! Is this vinyl?
Lizbot (host) 5:08:01 PM
Hi Casey! Ah, synchronicity, or something!
Lizbot (host) 5:08:59 PM
Hi Ambrose! I have a beloved copy of Marquee Moon on vinyl I bought when I was in high school, but no, I am playing off a CD

Lizbot (host) 5:12:22 PM

Lizbot (host) 5:15:46 PM
@Lee Chandler - These guys just really do it for me. When I want atmospheric and kinda mopey, can't be beat!
Lizbot (host) 5:16:32 PM
@Ambrose - I have heard of those guys multiple times but need to delve into their discography
Lizbot (host) 5:17:03 PM
@Ambrose - I know a band, Many Arms, and that band should do a split 7" with These Arms Are Snakes Called These Many Arms Are Snakes

@Number 6 - haha, amazing. Make it so! All the snex of the world unite and roll!
Lizbot (host) 5:21:39 PM
@Lee Chandler - ooh, two of my all-time favorites! Both Felt and The Chameleons I got heavily into in my teens and had to get all their records
Number 6 5:22:35 PM
The Chameleons UK are pretty good too.
Lizbot (host) 5:23:56 PM
@Ossy - Not familiar with that NES game, but my intro to Medusa as a little kid was through Clash of the Titans, a movie whose primary impression left on me was that metal owl sidekick. Loved that owl! It had collapsing metal collander eyes!
Lee Chandler 5:24:04 PM
Yep -also found them as a teen. Number 6 - funny!
Lizbot (host) 5:24:34 PM
@Number 6 - 4AD is just one of those great labels that consistently put out incredible stuff
Ambrose Hughes 5:27:54 PM
Lizbot (host) 5:29:06 PM
@Ambrose - Love her! thinking of revisiting The Science of Sleep. She was etsy incarnate in that one, felting and making water outta cellophane! It's kind of an intense movie but I think my teen would be into it
Ambrose Hughes 5:31:28 PM
@Lizbot, haven't seen it but now I'd like too!
Lizbot (host) 5:32:52 PM
@Lee Chandler - My strongest memory of first getting into The Chameleons was not long after I got my license, driving in a gloomy September day on Route 1 and listening to the entirety of Script of the Bridge and it being perfect. I was into some gloomy comics at the time, silly Jhonen Vasquez stuff, and I remember also reading them in my room while listening to that album

That do indeed sound fun Brian D
Lizbot (host) 5:41:38 PM
@Brian D - Definitely one of those bands people like to cover!
Ossy Hyouka 5:43:18 PM
Liz - Similarity, I'm not so into Clash of Titans, nor know too much of Kid Icarus, aside from few chars and some of the 1986 NES game, lol. I also saw Medusa like beings, Gorgons, in Disney Hercules. Found out recently, that particular Medusa in Kid Icarus is voiced by badass Cree Summer!
Lizbot (host) 5:45:57 PM
@Ossy - I saw Clash of the Titans too many times considering I didn't even like it aside from the owl! My brother liked it and watched it a lot, and the first time I saw it I was maybe 6 and found Medusa terrifying
Lizbot (host) 5:48:03 PM
@Ossy - Cree Summer voiced a character or two in practically every Saturday morning cartoon of my childhood. It was really cool to see her in Pamela Adlon's show Better Things. She is not only one of the best voice actors, she has the best sense of style !
Ossy Hyouka 5:51:49 PM
Looked up Clash Titans, and saw that's the one with Sam Worthington of Avatar fame. I haven't seen it, but now I'll check it out and that Medusa looking cute and scary. That owl looks like something off from Star Wars of C-3PO style!
Ossy Hyouka 5:54:09 PM
Yes, Cree is all around the industry, and best known for A Different World and Disney chars like Kida and The James Sisters off Pepper Ann and non Disney ones like Numbuh 5, Elmyra and Susie Carmichael
Lizbot (host) 5:54:42 PM
I watched a ton of the online streaming Sundance Film Festival 2023 last week and here are my favorites, in case any of you wanna keep your eyes out for these in the coming months (I don't know which ones are getting distro deals and where/when, but I'm sure some of these will come to theaters &/or streamers eventually): Scrapper, Shayda, Other People's Children, Mamacruz, Girl, Slow, Joyland, Smoke Sauna Sisterhood. Honorable mentions: Run Rabbit Run, Joonam, Sorcery, La Pecera, Starling Girl
DSM 5:57:10 PM
A surprising amount of selections start with the letter "S"
DSM 5:58:05 PM
Sounds super! Should I see some streaming I shall surely stream some!
Lizbot (host) 6:02:18 PM
@Ossy - And she was Penny from Inspector Gadget! I LOVED me some Inspector Gadget back in the day!
Lizbot (host) 6:03:24 PM
@Ossy - I'm referring to the 1981 original Clash of the Titans with stop-motion creatures by Ray Harryhausen. I don't know anything about the remake
Brian D 6:04:43 PM
Them's lasers!
Lizbot (host) 6:05:00 PM
@DSM - oh yeah! I hadn't even noticed that! I read the entire program guide and watched 25 features (online Sundance is like a stay-at-home vacation for me) + some shorts programs, and those were my favs! I HATED the Kim's Video documentary. Great stores, bad doc!
Lee Chandler 6:05:07 PM
One of my fav Harryhausen films is Jason and the Argonauts.
Lizbot (host) 6:05:36 PM
@Brian D - oh no, those lasers had better not be aiming at the synchronized sneks! This show is turning into its own video game!
In honor of Cindy Williams passing maybe something from Lenny and the Sqigtones?
DSM 6:07:05 PM
Good to know! I probably would have watched the Kim's video doc, but feel ok to skip now. I didn't even know you could watch Sundance online! I will be prepared next year.
Lizbot (host) 6:07:24 PM
@Lee Chandler - I definitely saw that one, but only once and when I was very young. My older brother had a Harryhausen phase.
Lizbot (host) 6:07:45 PM
Hi Carlos Ramone! haha, yeah, I did love Laverne & Shirley as a kid!
If I ever visit a brewery with a bottling line I break out the them song from show
Lizbot (host) 6:09:26 PM

Lizbot (host) 6:25:22 PM
@Carlos Ramone - I've only been to Milwaukee once, on a brief layover en route to Madison to visit a friend, so no macrobrewery tours for me, but had I fit one it, I'd have surely been singing Schlemiel Schlimazel Hasenpfeffer Incorporated the whole time!
Lizbot (host) 6:28:23 PM
@Rofflestomp - Pre-apocalyptic trimming the sails for sure!
Rofflestomp 6:28:39 PM
@Addie, Geez, that in spades here. It snowed the other day for like a few minutes. And did a cover the cars trick for a few hours once. But it a Meh winter.
Lizbot (host) 6:29:50 PM
@Lee Chandler - Oh the dancing snex to Barry White was a joyous Simpsons moment! Snex never forget!
Rofflestomp 6:31:01 PM
@Lizbot - Nice to have those hopes get some room to stretch out.
Lizbot (host) 6:32:39 PM
@Addie / Roffles - I'm kinda glad we haven't gotten much snow & ice in Philly this winter cuz my husband's still not 100% recovered from breaking his hip, and if he were to slip (which he more likely to do now) I would hate to think how far that could set him back!
Rofflestomp 6:33:12 PM
Hey George, Did you get a seeing eye hip yet?
Lizbot (host) 6:33:43 PM
@Rofflestomp - hmmm, seeing eye hip sounds like a Residents song title!
Rofflestomp 6:34:06 PM
Nice call!
Lizbot (host) 6:35:15 PM
@Ossy - I worked in Borders when it was at 1727 Walnut in Center City in my early 20s and we had some promo where we released some limited edition Pokemon card and it was limit one per customer and I SWEAR TO GOD a kid came in three times wearing different costumes , trying to get more! ha!
Lizbot (host) 6:35:44 PM
@Addie - Maybe plant rules apply and music makes sneks grow1
Rofflestomp 6:35:53 PM
The Residents are nutz, but I basically like nutty things.
Rofflestomp 6:36:46 PM
Damn good musicians too, but nutz nonetheless.

Rofflestomp 6:41:00 PM
Inflatable to antigaveity levels. That would be most effective.
Lizbot (host) 6:41:26 PM
@Number 6 - I almost bought him these removable metal spikes you can affix to shoe soles to prevent slipping, but held off buying them because of reviews indicating they're highly flawed and break easily
Lizbot (host) 6:42:42 PM
@Rofflestomp - I love 'em! I wish they did more of their American Composers Series! RIP Hardy Fox!

Christine 𓅓 6:47:22 PM
Sounding great, Lizbot 📻 🎶
Lizbot (host) 6:47:26 PM
@DSM - I had a feeling it wasn't gonna be good, but of course I loved Kim's video stores so I watched anyway, and man the narration is INTOLERABLE, the doc maker is really annoying to his interviewees and the whole thing has SO MANY unnecessary clips from really famous indie movies shoehorned in there pointlessly. Does not serve the story at all and the filmmaker just thinks the fact he loves movies is in and of itself so fascinating that he never stops talking about it. pointless
Lizbot (host) 6:47:40 PM
Hello Christine! Thanks! I hope you're having a good week!
Lizbot (host) 6:47:54 PM

Lizbot (host) 6:54:59 PM
@Number 6 - Always a good time. Bought a somewhat busted Fender Rhodes at the one a the First Unitarian Church like 16 years ago. Had fun with it before I got tired of hauling it around and couldn't fix it anymore!

@Rofflestomp - I haven't been to the R5 punk rock flea market in ages (as a consumer, anyway,) cuz I'm trying to shed stuff these days, but I have fond memories of good discussions with sellers. I used to go 15+ years ago when it was at the FUChurch and the Starlight Ballroom

@Andrew Pantry - oh WOW! Should be a WPRB Field Trip! I am SO bummed because it's actually super convenient - I actually have to be in Glenside kinda frequently. I'd make a night of it and get Trio's pizza and Weldon Fountain ice cream after the show!

The Weldon Foundation next to the Keswick is lovely.🍨
richard lyons 7:10:43 PM
Robyn!!! Great show, Lizbot!
Andrew Pantry 7:10:50 PM
i tried not to influence my kids' music tastes too much over the years, but i think I've completely corrupted them
Lizbot (host) 7:11:18 PM
Hi Richard Lyons! Thanks! Probably one solo Robyn H track happening before 8 pm too!
Andrew Pantry 7:12:08 PM
case in point: one of them is singing along to the soft boys right now

@Andrew Pantry - haha, I know the feeling! I bite my lip when my 14 year-old plays something I don't like, but it honestly doesn't happen that often. She's definitely absorbed a lot of my tastes, but she also has found a lot of cool stuff I wasn't familiar with on her own, some of which has made it onto my show. I had heard Mitski before she got very into her, but I had never checked out all her work until Hattie became a super-fan! She's great. and other artists I hadn't heard of at all!
Lizbot (host) 7:15:58 PM
@Andrew Pantry - Excellent! I love to hear that! WPRB influencing the youth! Just as it influenced me at that age!

@Christine - I love The Weldon Foundation! Took Hattie & her group of friends to Trios followed by The Weldon Foundation for her 14th birthday!
Lizbot (host) 7:17:40 PM
Christine 𓅓 7:17:46 PM
That sounds like a perfect birthday outing, Lizbot!
Lizbot (host) 7:18:09 PM
@Chrisitne - I was great, and all the better that both places have outdoor seating and it was gorgeous day!

Fishing with John was such a fun show
Lizbot (host) 7:18:37 PM
Sharks, snex and birds today. The land sharks are taking over
Rofflestomp 7:18:51 PM
WPRB is that wonder of extended family.
Lizbot (host) 7:19:06 PM
This was from the episode where John Lurie and Jim Jarmusch go shark fishing in Montauk. So good!
richard lyons 7:19:32 PM
Hahaha - YES!
Lizbot (host) 7:19:53 PM
@Rofflestomp - Yes, the warm and fuzzy feeling of all the DJs, listeners and albums I found through PRB!
Lizbot (host) 7:21:18 PM
@Richard Lyons - The narration was gold! Did you ever watch Painting with John on HBO? It's really good! Two seasons in now and he actually CAN paint!
Lizbot (host) 7:21:36 PM
@DSM - haha!
Lizbot (host) 7:22:10 PM
@Addie - Are you wiggling those snakes yrself?!
richard lyons 7:22:14 PM
I have not! A good reason to start up HBO Subscription again :)
Lizbot (host) 7:24:53 PM
Snakes! Mobilize! Chomp las cucarachas!

Lizbot (host) 7:26:24 PM
@Richard Lyons - It's so fascinating and odd and wonderful. He's a great storyteller. No absurdist narration this time around, but a lot of fun. I could listen to him all day. It's just him and his housekeeper and his manager but with one brief appearance by Philadelphia's own Calvin Weston, who has drummed on Lurie projects like Lounge Lizards over the years
Rofflestomp 7:27:18 PM
Lizbot (host) 7:27:24 PM
So much popping of Ps close to the mic in Las cucarachas, it turned into some buggy ASMR experience
Lizbot (host) 7:27:52 PM
@Rofflestomp - Gettin Frippy
Rofflestomp 7:28:25 PM
@Lizbot - The level of smarts and the homework you folks do, it is clear you folks do this for the love of it. Gosh, I love it! Thanks for RED!
richard lyons 7:29:49 PM
He is a treasure, Lizbot! Looking forward to it.
Lizbot (host) 7:30:24 PM
Who here has seen the King Crimson doc yet? I can honestly say it's one of the best music docs I've seen in years, and not just cuz I'm a fan! I had my doubts but it was really good. Some heartbreaking but really affecting interviews and footage from the last year of Bill Rieflin's life are peppered throughout the doc. That man had style and grace to the very end. He knew he was dying so figured he may as well tour and do what he loved for as long as he physically could
Lizbot (host) 7:31:19 PM
@Richard Lyons - there are a lot of kinda meh docs about bands I love, but this one delivered. I feel the same way about the Minutemen doc, We Jam Econo
Lizbot (host) 7:31:49 PM
Sounds like a cat got in studio with Petra as she was recording these voice tracks
richard lyons 7:32:17 PM
Absolutely Lizbot. I have not seen the new Bowie doc.
richard lyons 7:33:05 PM
Love We Jam Econo!
Rofflestomp 7:35:29 PM
Fantastic LizBot!
Lizbot (host) 7:35:48 PM
@Richard Lyons - Haven't seen it yet either. We Jam Econo is so great. So much fun footage of D Boone and of course Mike Watt is a good storyteller!
Lizbot (host) 7:38:20 PM
All this Mexican technopop is to say: I'm planning a trip to the Yucatan peninsula for late March. Anyone ever been?? Flying into Cancun since it has the most flights, but then driving away from tourist-land south to Tulum and then west to the Mayan pyramids. Anywhere else I should go? Should I consult the sneks?
Lizbot (host) 7:41:15 PM
Old H.G. Wells has something to say about all these squids and sneks
Christine 𓅓 7:41:56 PM
🎩 🦑
Lizbot (host) 7:42:51 PM
@Christine - More squids with top hats and sea creatures stranded in an ecstasy of waiting (a la Van Der Graaf Generator) please!
DSM 7:44:26 PM
Oh man Ladybug Transistor bringing back some feelings!
Rofflestomp 7:44:31 PM
Machete, jungle shit? Fucking machete!.
Lizbot (host) 7:45:33 PM
@DSM - The mellotron!
DSM 7:45:48 PM
Gonna dig out those Essex Green records too after this
Christine 𓅓 7:46:14 PM
That's a world everyone should visit, @Lizbot!
Lizbot (host) 7:46:25 PM
@DSM- This band elicits sighs from me. Pure nostalgia. I still have (sadly in fairly tattered condition) record release promo posters for Argyle Heir
Rofflestomp 7:46:26 PM
And a very big ass guy to carry George.
Lizbot (host) 7:47:20 PM
@DSM - Oh that's great twee late 90s/early 2000s throwback band too, sometimes paired with Ladybug by me!
jimboo 7:48:47 PM
BOT! 🤖
Lizbot (host) 7:48:56 PM
@Rofflestomp - I need an attack snek to fight off all the sneks that might attack me! Also an attack snek to fight off the tourists at the Mayan pyramids! Thankfully, George no longer needs a walker, but his cane might come in handy!
DSM 7:49:01 PM
Lizbot, think they teamed up for a project called 6th Great Lake? Something like that, so yeah pairing def makes sense
Lizbot (host) 7:49:06 PM
Hello jimboo!
jimboo 7:49:58 PM
This show has been fab 💥💥💥

DSM 7:51:25 PM
Oh Lizbot, just saw you are heading to Tulum! Went in 2015 and it was one of my fave travel spots ever!
Lizbot (host) 7:52:01 PM
@DSM - nice! Ive seen both live a couple times. I had one ill-fated show experience with Ladybug T at the long-defunct Conduit in Trenton. I was carless at the time and took the dinky to the NJT Northeast Corridor from Princeton Junction to Trenton to see The Lilys open for Ladybug, but everyone in the Lilys that wasn't founding member Kurt Heasely quit right before the show so just scrambled and started late and I had to leave and miss Ladybug's set, woefully, only to MISS the last SEPTA R7!
DSM 7:52:16 PM
Def check out some cenotes
Lizbot (host) 7:52:26 PM
@jimboo - Thanks, jimboo! See most recent comment for Trenton content! RIP Conduit!
Rofflestomp 7:53:20 PM
George needs a Segway. Just sayin' as I often do.
Lizbot (host) 7:53:24 PM
@DSM - Awesome! I"m so behind on planning this trip! Where all did you go? What was worthwhile checking out? How was the driving? Did you rent a car?
Lizbot (host) 7:54:13 PM
@Reofflestomp - haha, cuz an e-scooter did him dirty, I think a Segway might dump him off a sea cliff like one did to the last owner of the Segway Corporation!
Christine 𓅓 7:55:12 PM
Awesome sets tonight, Lizbot! 💯 I got a lot of laundry washed and folded.
Rofflestomp 7:55:30 PM
Get back on that horse! LOL Sorry, no. :)
Lizbot (host) 7:55:45 PM
@DSM - I def intend to! I used to be pretty okay at snorkeling/swimming and I learned in Exuma last March that I know suck at it, but I blame the current in Thunderball Grove!
Number 6 7:56:23 PM
Thanx Lizbot for all the snex, bugs and rock and roll!
DSM 7:56:50 PM
Lizbot I will do some remembering and recalling and get back to you on Tulum tips! But we did rent a car and driving was all really chill, not sure how things have changed now tho
Christine 𓅓 7:57:00 PM
And Victorian squids!
Rofflestomp 7:57:51 PM
Thanks Lizbot! Nice stuff!
Ossy Hyouka 7:57:53 PM
Great show and get together, Liz and the scary snakes and Greek gods and monsters, take care!

The sneks salute with their tails and are now returning to their cubbyholes until next time
Rofflestomp 8:01:55 PM
Lizbot (host) 8:02:48 PM
I almost stepped on a terciopelos in Costa Rica, so I need to befriend these sneks and win their trust so they don't mess with me in the Yucatan!
