Unruly Boys Who Will Not Grow Up Must Be Taken in Hand: Transmission 206, 2015 May 22

EveryDayIsLikeSunday.jpg"It's Morrissey's birthday," I think I said; "I have to do something." Not that he will notice or anything, but this lapsed Catholic is still big on observances. I did not seek out this opportunity; this is not a regularly scheduled "alpha" program but some bonus airtime that fell into my lap. I can think of nothing more diametrically opposed to "Conference of the Birds" than a shoddy-sounding indie rock bootleg, but to quote another Manchester icon "life just bounces."

This show happened a week after an aborted late-night Friday program, one on which I was going to "observe" the birthday of Andrew Eldritch, someone else whose records I listened to quite a bit 30 years ago. Guilt is the other thing I'm still really into, but again I'm guessing he won't have noticed either that it was going to happen or that it didn't. "Friend of Bombast" Jeremy got me hooked on SoM records and they were a powerful addiction for a while. I think "Body Electric" was my favorite--"too much contact and no more feeling." Yep. Has Morrissey ever written a line equal to that? [Okay, okay, dozens.] [Shut up.]

Another thing, in response to a question that no one asked, is that I remember going to see The Smiths in concert with a half-dozen of my closest friends, and that Sisters of Mercy were the soundtrack to my sitting alone in a darkened dorm room as friendships fell away. Whose music is "miserablist?" Maybe that's not fair, but it is what it is. I've written about The Smiths before--they were terrific, I will not argue it, and if you don't like my tapes or my rites, you can move along, there's another program coming soon.

Elitism for the People: Transmission 205, 2015 May 19

gyalcircuitcassette.jpgHurtling toward summer, our good run of form continues. The Primevals provided the "Physical Evidence" on this night--some good rocking tunes, although perhaps not the most, uh, enlightened things we have ever broadcast! (That's called truth in advertising--Ed.) At any rate, it is good to affirm every now and then that I can beat iTunes to the punch, so I got this one in just under the wire. It was nice to have two "Listening Parlour" visits, like the olden days. Lady Catharsis feels it's too much to come up with two songs per week to play. Cry me a river.

I was particularly comment-y on this evening, and again New Order turned out to be the target--purely accidental, although they are like an ex-girlfriend or something, if ex-girlfriends mattered as much as records. I haven't been able to enjoy "Ceremony" properly since that Absolut commercial, though, and it has nothing to do with moralizing. I don't care how much money people have, for the most part, or where they get it, as long as they're not stealing from me, and it's not even New Order performing the song in that ad--I just don't like thinking of cars (I'm looking at you, Pixies), booze, weed killer, tampons, whatever, when I hear one of my favorite songs. Adorno said something along those lines about Fantasia, so go yell at him if you disagree, he started it & he's more relevant than I am.

Cruising Altitude Departure 11, 2014 September 27

cruisingaltitudedeparture11.jpg[GUEST POST]

Halcyon here. The last time out, I was in quite a mood. This show brings nothing but [hic] happy memories.

We are currently experiencing fall-like weather, perfect for flying, but alas I do not have the time. I thought I would post this to remind you that I still exist. I do.

Kid Catharsis, who graciously allows me to post here, informs me that Heidi Berry is a "legend" of some sort. I don't doubt it! Nice tune.

I see from the playlist that I was more or less living in the past on this outing. That's fine; I don't have the same problems with that as others do.

  1. "On The Wrong Side of Relaxation" | Barry Adamson | Moss Side Story | Mute - Restless

You Take Your Pension in Loneliness and Alcohol: Transmission 204, 2015 May 12

oysterbandlovevigilantes10.jpgLike a fine ratatouille, this program made for better listening the next day. Except for Lady Catharsis' unfortunate absence, which made Billy Squier's inclusion in the program really weird, this is a mixtape with few flaws--host and selection notwithstanding. (I find I am doing well with this "demanding better from myself" business.)

On that subject--did I really say "we're mostly current tonight," or something like that, and then proceed to play the following sequence--Joy Division / Oyster Band / Billy Squier / Ian Dury / Section 25 / Headcoats? Yes, yes I did. Would you be willing to consider reissues as a mitigating factor? Do you believe, as I think I do, that if something never becomes "spectacle" it is as if it never happened, and is therefore new? That's what I managed to glean from Greil Marcus, anyway, although my scholarship is, as always, "cause for concern." [Guy, if you're paying attention, I could use your help.]

I did suffer a temporary bout of wishing-away-the-present in music. I hated the 90s, most everything about it: alternative as a genre; lumberjack singing; rave; the end of Factory and Rough Trade; the drawn-out death spiral of 4AD; the pretense of lo-fi; cuddlecore. If it weren't for turntablism, jungle, and Stereolab, I might have gone full-bore jazz/classical. Only recently have I begun to piece together the good bits from that time, thinking that it couldn't have been as bad as it felt back then. (It was close).

Read Some Pictures and Look At Some Words: Transmission 203, 2015 May 7

AnneDudleyJazColemanSongsfromtheVictoriousCity.pngOften enough, people want to occupy the airwaves without occupying the station. Not being able to do the show on a given week, a host will wonder if a previous episode will suffice. Usually the answer is "no." Here's a rationale, lest anyone think I'm just "squashing everyone's good ideas" in accordance with my role as one of the "three white guys" who "run the station": because we need live humans at the station as often as possible, and why not commandeer the booth if the airtime isn't claimed; because previously aired episodes don't reward those "repeat listeners" we all like to think we have; because new djs need to get learned; because letting djs appear at different times of day, to different crowds, helps publicize existing programs. One glance at my facebook page will let you take in the evidence that I am on the path to world domination, by following this latter plan.

At any rate Joe of Joe Show fame was out on this Thursday evening--how nice it must be to have people wanting to celebrate your birthday!--so I couldn't pass up a prime-time opportunity. Did I do anything remotely resembling Joe's show? Apparently not--no themes, no dance parties, no musing (no one cares what I think, at least that is a deeply held belief). A cassette, for god's sake, as the "Physical Evidence"--thank goodness fusion music is better than fusion cuisine. And lest anyone confuse our programs, a 24-minute Croix de Bombast at the end of it all. "You are really separating the wheat from the chaff," General Manager Felix tells me as he settles in to do his program. All the time, son, all the damn time.

BOMBAST playlist, 2015 May 7, 1900-2100:

U_D_M Detour 11, 2014 September 26

GINETTERENO-S-T.jpg[GUEST POST]

Guy LeBatard here, turning in a circle in the night to be consumed by the internet. It's May, which can only mean that I am fattening myself on a diet of whiskey and Cheez-its and stupefying myself watching the ice hockey playoffs. My team is no more, so my only interest is in making sure Les Habitants lose (though I do love Ginette Reno).

Here is a program from a leaner autumnal time. Did I see that Kid Catharsis had some thoughts on memory? As usual he's an egg short of a croque madame. Dead time: who needs it? The past is a terrible thing to hoard. This particular detour was outstanding, if you are the sort who needs others to entertain you, and I don't need to recall a thing about it to assert that.

U_D_M playlist, 2014 September 26, 1900-2000:

  1. "Isla" | Panthera Krause | Laika | Riotvan
  2. "Damdamm" | Basti Grub | Asante Sana | Desolat

Smokin’ ‘Em While I Got ‘Em: Transmission 202, 2015 May 5

headcoatsgoodtimesarekillingmevinyl.jpgThe first Bombastic hours of May were near-perfect, and here is the evidence. Execution trumped segues on this night, although there were a couple of nice moments. I'm finding Medway nights difficult in this regard; I am sure that somewhere in these archives I have wondered "aloud" whether that was a sign of greatness. I begin to doubt that it is, but Childish & co. do not need me to certify them.

As a seeming influx of djs, coupled with my increasing reluctance to do late nights, diminishes the frequency of my transmissions I have time to reflect on things. This week I turn to my own schtick. Last time out I said that I impress myself; despite that being a change of pace and a much-needed affirmation, I will point out some areas where I make myself tired. (a) Not Remembering, e.g. the innumerable "something must have gone wrong, but I don't recall what it was" / "this program was so long ago the details are lost on me" excuses. It's not cute. No one cares. (b) Honoring Mistakes As a Sign of Liveness: ugh, you're not John Peel, son, tighten up your game. (c) Threatening to Quit Over Some Radio Drama. "Don't you ever quit," a wise person told me very early in this adventure, and she was right. If I quit, the cocks win. They might do so anyway, but they'll have to kill me.

Here's hoping we see no more of that.

Give Up, Give Up: Transmission 201, 2015 April 28

sonicyouthevollp.jpgWe begin our third century with an "only slightly imperfect" episode. I've been on a good run lately. The real downer on this night was that our planned "Physical Evidence" release finally managed to surface on iTunes, about 15 years after the fact. I believe that's twice Tim Cook has defeated me now; he's making a game of it. Still, Lady Catharsis contributes the track "Christianity Is Stupid," sure to irritate friends and family alike.

Confession: my favorite place to listen to these mixtapes after the fact is the treadmill. They are surprisingly good for the purpose. If I cannot impress anyone else with this program, I will at least impress myself. This is my affirmation for the day. I need these things--I've been considering taking a break lately, having just seen two other programs do just that and seeing their hosts seemingly dropping substantial spiritual weight.

There are two more programs recorded and in the pipeline. That's as much as I can promise. I could always get run over by a bus, you know.

Cruising Altitude Departure 10, 2014 September 13

kaboomkaravan.jpg[GUEST POST]

Halcyon reporting. Days are warmer and longer, and skies are clearer; it was for these climes that we created this program. This particular episode, however, aired when looming equinox forced me into afternoon duty.

Initially I tried posting this on soundclod, but apparently Siinaii's people thought a bit-starved .mp3 of their tune threatened copyright. When people are 90 years old, wondering why it didn't work out for them and their music, why people ultimately never heard of them or didn't care, I hope they have some nice fables to tell themselves. I mean that. Stories are great fun.

Thank goodness this program is a "mere" pop-up; I'd hate to feel like anything about it "had" to happen.

U_D_M Detour 10, 2014 August 29

udmdetour10.png[GUEST POST]

LeBatard ici, and I will leave you to guess where "here" is. I took a much-needed vacation from the relentless schedule of doing shows, posting shows, etc., but I have returned to dead, cyclical time, for now. For some reason the people at WRFI made me a regular fixture last summer, and here is one of those shows. IIRC this was just after Kid Catharsis's birthday, which was a disaster. It's a shame we can't fuel our motorbikes with the terrible behavior of other people, for it is a limitless resource.

Anyway--this is a truly arbitrary collection of tunes. Grab-bags and adventure are how I roll. If you want planning and care, you'll have to go somewhere else.
