DSM 8:34:28 PM

rosasolis (host) 8:35:37 PM

Marcus Watt 8:47:42 PM
Excellent show. I'd bet I'm the only person listening who has seen John Martyn. 1977.
reina the maenad 8:48:07 PM
sheesh the dream team really is here 🫶🏿 hi yall!!
rosasolis (host) 8:49:42 PM
good evening marcus! grateful to hear :) how was the performance? i think his album sunday child came out around then before maybe..
Marcus Watt 8:51:37 PM
He was great. Also his between song banter was hilarious. I could say the same about Billy Bragg.
rosasolis (host) 8:53:23 PM
@reina ♡ and @marcus ooh i bet.. i didnt kno he toured around this area!
Ossy 8:54:08 PM
aren't ambience and japanese sounds so relaxing and sock wearing cozy on nights like this?
Ossy 8:55:25 PM
Rosa - Also in the IG link, girl with the pink hair is a White Mage from Final Fantasy

Gautham Kalva 9:18:22 PM
Hi @Rosasolis, nice set of songs. Did you just mention
Gautham Kalva 9:18:39 PM
meredith monk inspired by nick drake?
Ira Te Mix 9:19:03 PM
Hi Rosasolis and everyone! Let me try and translate the Fire selection: "Medina / Black Black" / "If One Does Not Go..." and the rest is already translated.. BTW I did live in Japan which seems like a lifetime ago btw. 1987 & 1990, Unfortunately I was not aware of the Tokyo Psyche Scene when I lived there....
Ossy 9:19:34 PM
Rosa - Mentioning you liking the word ushering, iconic rnb singer Usher is performing in this year's halftime Super Bowl
rosasolis (host) 9:19:49 PM
@tandy cape verde has such lovely music.. and @gautham the john martyn track was inspired by nick drake! solid air :)
rosasolis (host) 9:20:47 PM
hii ira!! thank you so much for the translation i was wondering.. how was the music scene when you were there? and @ossy that's probably why im saying it!
Ossy 9:22:26 PM
Usher was even in Brandy's old iconic sitcom, Moesha, as one of her high school boyfriends from another school!
Rob F 9:22:56 PM
Hello, I liked that John Martyn
rosasolis (host) 9:24:31 PM
hii rob! me too i really like his bluesy sound.. and @ossy tru!!
Ossy 9:26:03 PM
They got a song together Who She 2 U remix!!
Andrew G 9:29:19 PM
jeromes dream! nice
Andrew G 9:29:46 PM
they played an awesome show at milkboy last spring
DubNP 9:30:00 PM
Ira Te Mix 9:31:14 PM
The music scene in Tokyo was insanely great. It would take hours to tell about it, and I was not even focused on music when I lived there. There were only a few radio stations on FM no College Radio..but the stations were much more varied than anything in the US, you could hear cool stuff on regular stations then. There was a weekly TV show on weekends called "Ika Ten" where new bands competed for record contracts. A lot of great music came out of that show. I could go on forever...
Andrew G 9:31:18 PM
oh, and hi there
rosasolis (host) 9:32:15 PM
hii andrew!! omg awesome... i feel like im so late but ive been relistening to a lot of their stuff and screamo in general.. screamasolis indeed @dub
rosasolis (host) 9:33:02 PM
@ira i can imagine the crazy number of record stores with amazing releases too! ill make sure to look up the show on youtube later maybe there are some clips
Ira Te Mix 9:33:10 PM
Then in the 90s till 2013 I was in the San Francisco Bay Area and saw TFUL282 many, many times. I also did tons of radio like WPRB and was at the same station as Dan Buskirk was in SF....
DubNP 9:33:32 PM
What else have you been listening to Rosasolis?
Andrew G 9:34:11 PM
i love this ep. it was my first tful282 experience
rosasolis (host) 9:38:59 PM
@ira i didn't kno dan buskirk was in sf wow! i bet the scene there was also amazing id love to hear! and @dub a lot of ichiko aoba and a genre called pluggnb (with sara!)
rosasolis (host) 9:39:20 PM
@andrew same! that ep and mothers of all saints were my introduction and im forever happy for it
Ossy 9:41:17 PM
Speaking of that, love the All Saints girl band
Andrew SoCal 9:41:36 PM
When I first heard you play the song Nipper I immediately knew I needed to hear more. 😃
rosasolis (host) 9:43:31 PM
@andrew right?? those early tful282 records have sooo much energy i just wish i could have seen them live! and @ossy ooh i dont think i know..
Ira Te Mix 9:44:39 PM
Maybe Dan being in SF was supposed to be kept secret, but I actually heard him mention that station "KUSF" that we were both on once on his show. KUSF was like WPRB but shut down Jan. 2011..Ichiko Aoba song = Machinery Work of Space ( Space as in "Outer Space" the word "Uchu = Outer Space )
Em 9:46:10 PM
oh! I saw Ichiko Aoba last October!
DSM 9:46:50 PM
this is so lovely
Ossy 9:46:51 PM
Rosa - They're highly recommended listening to, especially All Saints song "Black Coffee" 💙
Ossy 9:47:45 PM
Ichiko Aoba gotta be a wprb fave!
rosasolis (host) 9:50:30 PM
@ira tysm! i was wondering what the translation was.. i need to study again.. and @em omg how was the concert? ive heard the atmosphere is so lovely :)
rosasolis (host) 9:50:56 PM
@dsm that whole live album i think is based off her album 0! and i will def check them out @ossy
Em 9:53:24 PM
her set was perfect, she opened for Japanese Breakfast and having not listened to her stuff beforehand, I was blown away
Em 9:54:13 PM
i can't remember a show ive been to where the opener has such an impact on the crowd like that
Ossy 9:54:25 PM
Was watching Avatar The Last Airbender along with these sounds and wow, Aoba opened for Japanese Breakfast?
Em 9:55:05 PM
yes - they performed at radio city music hall
Andrew G 9:55:55 PM
I'm digging the VU vibes
Andrew G 9:56:11 PM
on this track
Em 9:56:44 PM
jb did a few shows in october before Michelle moved to Korea
rosasolis (host) 9:59:18 PM
@em this makes me hope she has a show nearby sometime soon so i can catch her, itd be amazing if wprb could ever find a way to table for her sets...
rosasolis (host) 9:59:36 PM
@andrew yess mizutani's guitar really reminds me of the VU sound!
Ossy 10:01:13 PM
That will be electric shock if Aoba came to NJ
DSM 10:03:51 PM
this is the drone I needed tonight
DubNP 10:04:03 PM
So good.
rosasolis (host) 10:06:05 PM

rosasolis (host) 10:44:42 PM

TAndy 10:49:52 PM
