Let me guess, "Disco Sucks" right?
Ever listen to the Talking Heads? Or Tom Tom Club (James Brown mentioned by Chris Franz in Genius of love)
I think this Kids in the Hall dialogue sums it all up:
Mr. Gorgenchuck: Now that’s just where you’re wrong Bobby. Recent studies show that rock and roll is, in fact, dying.
Mr. Gorgenchuck: Popular music has been on the wane since 1974, the year of the first Bad Company release.
Bobby: I have that album.
Mr. Gorgenchuck: Ha ha ha, of course you do Bob. You see poor live performances by the likes of Chuck Berry and even Jerry Lee Lewis are destroying the music that they allege to celebrate. And tests show that a Beach Boys concert is a very sad thing. This coupled with the growing interest in ethnic music has undermined the support base of the music that you and your friends love.
Mr. Gorgenchuck: Let’s see if I can’t put this into terms you’ll understand. Say you had 12 beer.
Bobby: Oh, okay all right!
Mr. Gorgenchuck: All right! Now let’s say that four of those beer represent the Pogues, another six represent the Gypsy Kings, and one beer is shared by The Chieftains and Lady Smith Black Mombaza.
Bobby: Hold it, that only leaves one beer. I’ll never get drunk on one beer!
Mr Gorgenchuck: Exactly Bob. But learn to nurse that beer and before you know it, you’ll be loving jazz!

"It was like a James Brown review medley..."
Sounds like a nightmare (not a Red one, that would be fine!)
More seriously, how can you make a comparison between the two?
You’ll gather James Brown is not ever on my playlist (if I ever had a playlist!)
Bruford Drum Question
:: Posted by snkzato1 on October 27, 2014
So I am curious if anyone can help me out with a simple question. Bill Bruford’s website shows that his kit from 1981-1982 was the same (as seen in various live clips), but looking a some of the pictures from the early Discipline shows this does not seem the case. I can not tell, however what the exact set-up is since there are very few photos of those shows and even fewer of his kit.
85' Red Rhino Records Solo Show ...
:: Posted by theguitarfairy on October 27, 2014
hi friends ...
love love the site!
recently uploaded the 7/18/85 Red Rhino solo show ... fairly certain show, at least the way it arrived to me after download, is recorded at 1/2 speed. has anyone else come to this realization?
i’ve used the EH 16 second delay since they were released. was curious to relive what Fripp was doing w/ it back then. started digging into this solo set ... besides realizing timbre was suspect, i quickly realized events were all happening at 30 second intervals +/- (ie double what an EH16 is capable of) .. Fripp is obviously using a 16: you clearly hear him starting events using "click" feature, he hits "fast" switch thereby raising all events an octave and doubling tempo and finally signal degradation is exactly what you’d expect from these devilish devices ; )
i wonder if i received set this way because of some weirdness in upload or has everyone been experiencing set at 1/2 speed?
belew trimuphs in flux
:: Posted by starmore on October 27, 2014
I had the privilege of seeing Adrian Belew at the World café live in Phialdelphia PA on 10/23/14. It was an amazing show from “just three people “(with a little help from the opener). One of my favorites CD’s of his was OP ZOP TOO WAH, and this was like a live version of that; songs from his whole history from Lone Rhino to KC to e and beyond (and an incredible special Zappa encore). He was nervous about the set, which started with a medley of songs from Lone Rhino with Flux random noises in-between.
It was like a James Brown review medley……start Frame by Frame end up with Beat Box Guitar. Many of the songs were complete as well. The second set was one for the ages:
· Three of a Perfect Pair
· Neurotica (a great idea, let the vocal track play, then start with the middle section and segue into “Of bow and Drum “as I recall.it…. online says no)
· Walking on Air
· Inner Revolution
· Twang Bar King (just a few bars)
· Elephant Talk (starting with the tango section)
· Indiscipline (Tobais Ralph killed it on drums, absolutely at KC Beast level )
Then “e” and a special surprise for Julie Slick’s hometown, City of Tiny Lights.
Absolute killer, Adrian met and signed things after the show and was so charged up!
It really will go down in my “best shows ever witnessed in Philly” category along with the 1982 Beat tour or seeing Peter Gabriel that same year, or seeing Bill Frisell with Tim Berne and Paul Motion at the Painted Bride or the Mat Maneri Trio in 2000.
“Massive” tour is funny, because he is playing smaller places and hardly has the KC accessory table (he joked that he actually has a t-shirt for sale for this show!) What a contrast in merchandising-and all the better for it.
It was a great show and for the first time gave a real picture of the “Flux” of styles that Adrian’s whole career has embodied. If you can see it, do not hesitate.
