Elitism for the People: Transmission 205, 2015 May 19

May 28, 2015

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.
