Good morning, WPRB-land! Begin radio transmission.
TAndy 10:02:19 AM
Good groggy morning, Dan. Great segue from the last track of the previous show
Brian D 10:02:41 AM
Blast back to great 2000s WPRB memories here
Dan Ruccia (host) 10:03:27 AM
This was totally *the* song of summer 2002
Mike Lupica 10:03:44 AM
Early aughts Rapture is a bold opening volley. I must quickly grow a cop moustache and unlock my penny farthing for maximum '03 Brooklyn-electroclash vibes.
Brian D 10:04:21 AM
Aye. Out of the Races and Onto the Tracks was year before wprb fave
Dan Ruccia (host) 10:04:42 AM
I also remember going to a radio friend's wedding at some point in the late aughts, and we put this on when we wanted to clear all the olds off the dance floor
Brian D 10:05:41 AM
Grab me some rust color corduroy pants while yer there Mike. They stole that clothing item from me the h-words of that era
Parrscream 10:07:27 AM
Good morning Dan! Good morning all!
Dan Ruccia (host) 10:11:48 AM
Hey Parr!
Dan Ruccia (host) 10:13:57 AM
That was more jarring a transition than I expected
Mike Lupica 10:14:50 AM
Super into this Zomes record. They're new to me, but I love me some good RenFaire dirges.
Dan Ruccia (host) 10:15:30 AM
Zomes=Asa from Lungfish
Mike Lupica 10:15:51 AM
This songs makes me want to watch The Wicker Man.
Mike Lupica 10:16:20 AM
Wow! Did not know about the Lungfish connection. Makes perfect sense now that you've revealed that detail!
Dan Ruccia (host) 10:17:33 AM
They do the ritual very well
Brian D 10:22:46 AM
Great one here
Brian D 10:23:09 AM
Just read Steve Hanley's book last month
Dan Ruccia (host) 10:23:44 AM
How was it?
Brian D 10:24:42 AM
Great book! A person who knows the Fall maybe 2nd best next to MES
Brian D 10:34:49 AM
Bed music today is killer
Dan Ruccia (host) 10:36:50 AM
Fripp & Eno FTW
fr1dayafternoon 10:38:43 AM
I thought of this Ryley Walker song the other day but oddly enough didn’t play the album at home. And now you’re playing this specific song.
Dan Ruccia (host) 10:39:17 AM
It's a great one! Randomly popped into my head the other day and of course I had to play it
fr1dayafternoon 10:39:31 AM
Maybe we’re on a same plane or something. Vibes, right?
Dan Ruccia (host) 10:39:45 AM
Dan Ruccia (host) 10:40:19 AM
It's funny, when I first heard this record, I was kinda down on this particular song. But over the years, I've come to believe it's maybe the best on that record
Brian D 10:41:33 AM
Ya the Ryley is nice!
Dan Ruccia (host) 10:42:16 AM
This song goes out to all the Kens #kenough
Dan Ruccia (host) 10:44:04 AM
It's also one of the most vicious, unfortunate fade outs I've ever heard. I want that raveup to keep going for another few minutes
fr1dayafternoon 10:45:12 AM
My LP of that Walker album is mislabeled. B side label on the A side, etc. I think it’s still my favorite of his, the one after being a close second.
fr1dayafternoon 10:47:48 AM
Saw Human Adult Band at a tiny art gallery in Queen Village a couple years ago. Way more into this studio cut than their set that night. Haha
TAndy 10:53:00 AM
This song goes so hard
Dan Ruccia (host) 10:55:14 AM
Hat tip to Jon Solomon who played something else by GHOLD last week that had me totally intrigued
TAndy 10:56:46 AM
I have I hat yet I must tip
TAndy 10:56:54 AM
*tips cranium* ... Ouch.
TAndy 11:26:39 AM
This is so good to hear after finishing up my yearly physicsl
Brian D 11:28:00 AM
That was a wild ride
Dan Ruccia (host) 11:31:56 AM
Watching the frequency graph for this piece is wild
Dale Hazelton 11:42:09 AM
hey now. had my ears on entire show.....i wonder if mike pinder knew of this when he did the keyboards for 'in the beginning' on 'on the threshold of a dream.'
Dan Ruccia (host) 11:45:37 AM
Hey Dale! It's possible, but I honestly have no idea. It's unclear how much Pade's music circulated in Europe in the 60s and 70s
TAndy 11:48:34 AM
Loved that a lot
Rofflestomp 11:49:42 AM
Hi Dan! Good morning folks. Cool sounds this morning, only missing an air raid klaxon. :)
TAndy 11:51:55 AM
Thank you very much for the music Dan
Dan Ruccia (host) 11:57:48 AM
Thanks for listening, everyone!
Brian D 11:59:46 AM
Einar from Sugarcubes figures into the Steve Hanley book on the Fall. Important in getting booking and all things punk in Iceland.
