#57 Music Of The Spheres

Cool space pic? Check! Mystical but meaningless title? Check! Needlessly provocative song titles? Let's see... blood, queens, Sun Ra? Check! 16 minutes of semi-spacey, noodling that seems to take on a life of its own? Hmmm! Hooks? Where are the hooks? I don't hear any hooks! What the hell was that? A what? Is that even an instrument? Who's that guy in the corner eating coconut from a can with a fork? Is he in the band? Then, what's he doing here? Get him out. I mean it! Get him out now, he's creepin' me out big time. In fact, why don't all you guys get out of my office... and take your roaches with you. Tammi, call security.

Digging this one quite well and gave it a write up over at the Psychedelic Garage: http://psychedelicobscurities.blogspot.com/2011/06/were-late-for-class-2011-music-of.html

Have a listen to my latest Damaged Tape set, "Ambiguous Reality" while you're there.

In fact, hit me up if you all ever have the urge for a collaboration. Maybe you've got some outtakes hanging around that just seem to be missing that certain something.

Thanks a million Doc. Can't thank you enough for taking the time and saying such nice things about us ne'erdowells. We already grabbed your latest when we updated our sidebars to include it, thanks. A collaboration? We've hung out at your place before, we'll need to check the coffers to see if we have enough drugs for visiting dignitaries from Psych Nation.


Ah...at last. Fresh WLFC.
Sun Ra

(obligatory aside...thanks for another chunk of great song)

NØ's back! Rumors of your death by a thousand paper cuts was apparently nothing more than exaggerated claptrap. Thanks NØ.

I'm so glad you have come back with new material. til now i've had to be content with revisiting some of my favorites from your back catalog (not a bad thing by any means), but I get such a warm feeling inside when there's quality Fresh Stuff to fill my ears.

i did pick up on the singles, but i waited till the box set was released. i figure that from a collector's stand point, twenty years from now, the DELUXE BOX SET will serve me better somehow.

Thanks Jeremiah. If you still remember us 20 years from now, we'll assume you didn't take your DMD (daily minimum dosage) of memory-killing drugs. There'll be a quiz in 2031.

My smoking jacket is presently with the dry cleaner, but I think my space suit is still in the closet. I haven't had occasion to wear it for awhile, but with your latest release you've given me a reason to dust it off.

Wish me safe journey.

We can't imagine surviving without a back-up smoking jacket, but that's just us. God Speed Mr. Miles. Thanks for docking.
