Coxsonne.

Better would've been "Old Dictionary", but there's no performance of it online.

Is 20 Jazz Funk Greats actually funky? I've never heard it.

3 is great. The drummer has really curious drumheads on, too. I've seen black heads before, but they're usually a sort of glossy finish, not matte. Wonder what's up with those.

Sigh. For optimum noise, I should do that skinny puppy mix I threatened to do.

James Brown - I Feel Good
James Brown - Gonna Have A Funky Good Time
James Brown - Sex Machine

Yeah, I do love me some Soil&Pimp Sessions. They're no less energetic live (for example, though I had trouble picking just one to represent their utter awesomenessitude).

Haha! Okay, picking up the keyboard and stand and carrying it around is a new one to me.

re: 12

The guy from Fishbone used to do that. Dragged it all over the stage, leaping about on it.

I saw Trent Reznor kick over some keyboards during a show, once, but given that it made no difference to the music being played I have a feeling he spared the DAT player.

Sorry about the format, apo.

Playing in the browser, no problem. If I weren't so neurotic about having tags match in my library, it wouldn't matter in iTunes either (which is an issue with iTunes, not with the ogg format). I am aware, however, that it's my own neurosis, so I just deal.

I downconverted some of the tracks on my mix from apple lossless to preserve maximum compatibility. Why? Because I love you all so much.

More stage fun with keyboards. Keith Emerson quoted in Brian Davison's obit.

I practised hurling the daggers into a dartboard but had a low hit rate. I threw the knives on stage at the organ anyway and after the show was confronted by a very angry drummer sporting a large cut across his forehead. "Who the hell do you think you are . . . Errol Flynn?" At the next gig Brian surrounded himself with a protective screen of gongs.

Soil & Pimp Sessions doesn't really play what *I* would call death jazz.

Regarding keyboard antics, there used to be a band in town (with a pretty funny name: Ted Striker's Drinking Problem) whose lead singer and keyboardist had a full (i.e., pretty heavy) keyboard rigged up with a strap so he played it like a keytar. The keyboard itself was decorated to look like an NES controller. Man, those guys were fun times.

Ted Striker's drinking problem is NOT funny, Stanley.

It's a little early for comity if this thread is going to be a good alternative to any other threads people might not want to be reading.

No, neb, what's wrong with society is, um, inexpensive parking!

That's a terrible band name. I can think of a better one in one second. How about: Ted Drinker's Striking Problem.

Ted Striker's drinking problem was pretty funny, though. Sometimes I'll pour water on myself just to remember it. And, you know, drown the pain.

I'd pour water on myself right now, if I thought it would help.
