It's great. I think in the age of digital tuners and streaming, it's going the way of tape flutter & NTSC video static. I love it, myself.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58pm

It's great. How do you find things on Bandcamp, Kurt? Tag searches? Or do you know the labels? (I don't, except maybe a couple)
Avatar 4:00pm
Kurt Gottschalk:

i don't really search bandcamp, it's just stuff i get alerted to by publicists or friends.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:04pm
Rich in Washington:

They don't make it easy to search stuff out on Bandcamp. I think they want to promote all their clients equally badly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:14pm

Ha, that's funny, Rich. I find tags can be helpful if I'm looking for certain things (e.g., lo-fi, glitch, outsider, Russia, France, etc.), but I would love some sort of way to flip through images that were divvied up into certain genres or categories of some kind. I feel like it's difficult to have a happy accidental find there, it seems to be more about knowing what you're looking for

If you use Bandcamp to search for "kurt gottshcalk" you'll retrieve four hits. If you use Google to search for

"kurt gottschalk" site:bandcamp.com

...you'll retrieve three pages of hits, all at bandcamp.com. Includes records for which KG designed cover, etc.

"end of cole ave" is the name of the bootlegs (and the club). the least interesting parts of those concerts were released as "1969"

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:13pm

A great cover of a terrific Randy Newman song.
Avatar 6:15pm

Parq, I've never heard Randy Newman sing it either, and I like his work very much.
Avatar 6:16pm

nice, Kurt!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:25pm

Geez, it was on his Little Criminals album and got completely overshadowed because that was the album that had "Short People". It's the greatest song I know about loathing for a home town.
Avatar 6:29pm

Parq, how funny, totally missed it!

X's song about L.A. isn't full of affection either. :)

Yes, but Randy Newman "love[s] L.A.!"
Avatar 6:31pm

ha ha, forgot that !

And then, of course, there's the cheesy NYC tribute popularized by Sinatra. We native West Coast bastards used to change the lyrics to a puerile, "If I can take it there I'll take it anywhere..."
Avatar 6:37pm
Kurt Gottschalk:

sinatra, who loved new york but never even looked back at his hometown, hoboken.

To be fair, "Hoboken, Hoboken" just doesn't have the same ring to it.
Avatar 6:40pm

Good one about D.C.; "Bourgeois Blues". Leadbelly.
Avatar 6:45pm
Kurt Gottschalk:

bourgeois blues is an amazing song
Avatar 6:46pm

Dean, yeah the rivalry was intense. Now N.Y. & L.A. are almost like
differently themed rooms in the same hotel.

This two tone stuff is making me very nostalgic!
Avatar 6:47pm

Kurt, yes! Great lyrics. Nothing's changed!
Avatar 6:48pm

That Specials album is a gem.

geezerette, and the hotel includes many such themed rooms as more big (and not-so-big) cities opt to caricature themselves.

I was tepid about the ska revival at the time. It was hard for me to come down from punk and music of the fledgling industrial scene. I remember receiving a copy of The Specials' second album to review. Kept it a few months, then gave it up. Wouldn't mind hearing it again now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:52pm
Mike East:

Interesting that you played a cut off the Specials LP followed by an MP3 off the same record...didn't want to flip the rekkid?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:52pm
Mike East:

great show, btw...I really needed this after today.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:54pm

This isn't the song "Madness". But it is one of my fave songs from the album.
Avatar 6:55pm
Kurt Gottschalk:

flipping records takes too long!
and yeah, parq, i think the record is mislabeled.

Weird. This morning the local college station played a bunch of Madness, Specials, English Beat, and Prince Buster. Did a memo go out? Also heard a lounge-y cover version of "Madness" recently.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:56pm

The lines "Broke it off when she got shirty -- she was 12 and he was 30" just kill me. I see this is the tail end of a whole long set, most of which I missed. Oh well.
Avatar 6:58pm

Dean,yes, the deadly sameness. I blame Dwell for not understanding Case Study houses.

Know what you mean,still I think that's a very good album. You might like it now.

Great show Kurt!
