Music I heard on WFMU this afternoon that I think Jess will like
I couldn't find videos for "Peanut" (from our favorite Sonny Sharrock LP, "Black Woman") and "Endlessly Fascinated" (brand new!!) by the unstoppably good Psychedelic Horseshit.
"Peanut" was on Mayor McDowell's "Long Rally." The rest were on "Three Chord Monty" and Brian Turner's Show.

"Downtown New York"
What I found instead was this link to clips from "Downtown New York," a then-contemporary public access show with which I was otherwise unfamiliar.
Watching clips of Soho from the latter half of the 80s reminded me of this Glenn O'Brien article (to keep the NY public access theme going), about his realization that the neighborhood had become "too hot" for his handling. The gallery scenes from "Style Wars" come to mind as well (fast forward to 2:53).
Things change, I'm not saying anything new, but it's been on my mind recently and is one of those facts that manages to surprise me whenever I'm reminded of it.

The Dustys at Terminal 5
Avoid, if at all possible, Trisonic C-90 tapes. They might look amazing--and why else would you buy them?--but they're useless. They will wreck whatever you put them into.

Who wants to start a Cantina band?
It's been a lot of fun to watch the alternative controller market explode over the last couple of years. Time was you had to pull out a Millioniser 2000 if you wanted to cause a scene. Nowadays, you can't help but trip over some new version of the Monome. There are options is what I'm trying to say, options aplenty and the more the merrier. Any move away from a traditional keyboard offers a new possibility.
On a related note, if anyone reading this in the UK will be at one of this month's Eigen Labs demos PLEASE report back on it, either in the comments or via email.
Question: is the guy on the bottom-left of the Star Wars photo playing a Drum Buddy?
*Matrixsynth, as always, had the scoop.
