guest DJ set list (Feb 11, 2021)

Thanks to ffog for inviting me to guest-DJ again on his weekly internet radio show, Myocyte.
The mix was "simulcast" on anonradio and tilderadio, and has been archived by anonradio (scroll down to "Ffog - Pleasure & Discomfort Myocyte").

An mp3 version of the mix is here: [1 hr mp3]

While the tracks were playing I announced via text chat on the #sally and #tilderadio on IRC. Listeners could comment or ask questions. This was an interesting way to DJ, very different from my old FM radio days and a few steps up aesthetically from having everyone's data and souls leeched out on spotify, etc.

Set list and notes for the show:

1. Iron Butterfly, Unconscious Power (the moment in pop music history when lyrics changed from "ooh baby baby" to "triggering the unconscious power")

2. Tuxedomoon, No Tears (self released early 45 rpm, 1978, featuring Herman's Hermits style drumming they would immediately abandon, and dirty guitar by the great Michael Belfer)

3. Martin Rev, Secret Teardrops (I especially like the "harp" sound and the tympani at the end)

4. Frank Zappa, The Black Page #1 (Piano Version) (from around the time of Zappa Live in New York, subsequently released as a bonus track -- it's my favorite version -- Ruth Underwood on piano)

5. Norris The Boss Windross, Funky Groove (UK garage)

6. Orson Karte, Metamorphosis (the first 2 minutes of a 17 minute track)

7. Barry Miles, Skeleton Dance (intro only) (early '70s US jazz pianist)

8. Planet Gong, Under the Rainbow (this has nothing to do with the Daevid Allen Gong -- '90s techno I missed)

9. Uriel AKA Arzachel, Egoman - (this band eventually became Egg -- very rough live? bonus track of an interesting song -- they were 18-19 years old when they did this)

10. David Jackman, Untitled B (mid '80s noise cassette)

11. Gadgets, Perfect Feeling (1999-ish tech house, German)

12. If, Your City is Falling (British jazz rock in the vein of Blood Sweat & Tears, Ides of March, Chicago -- the playing is extremely tight and I like the Canterbury-ish organ)

13. Izit, One by One (British acid jazz era -- Tony Colman, pre-London Elektricity -- very pretty songwriting)

14. Sean Deason, Detroit 2030 ("third wave" Detroit techno guy)
