On this week's show:
 
* Featured New Rock Album: Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, *Skeleton Tree* (2016) . . . Toward this end of the recording of this album, Nick Cave's teenage son Arthur died in an accident . . . Cave & his main collaborator Warren Ellis did some additional work on the album to deal with the emotional devastation of this tragedy . . . It is very difficult to separate this horrible event from the music that emerges . . . yet Cave's grief is his own, & it would be unfair to judge his album solely by his family's tragedy . . . this all said, this is a beautiful album, a deeply strange & moving album . . . a thing of nocturnal beauty . . . wow . . .

* Featured Classic Rock Album: Bob Seger, *Seven* (1974) . . . Bob Seger was not yet a star when this album was released, but he was on his way . . . he had recently assembled his Silver Bullet Band, & he was writing moving, funny, endearing, rocking music . . . his dues paid as he worked out who he was, & how he wanted his music to sound . . . this LP shows him & his band billowing out full sail, under way . . .

* Storybook Time*: Continuing Chapter 12 of *The Unconsoled* by Kasuo Ishiguro . . .

* Readings from *Bags End News*, *Many Musics*, & *Labyrinthine* . . . & this week featured artists are one last bunch of those featured on "American Top 40 with Casey Kasem" back on June 7, 1986 . . . this is show #600 of this program, coming 18 1/2 years into its run . . . as a remembering treat, it includes a sound collage from back in 2000, the beginning of including the shinier bits & pieces of old shows . . . but most this show is for this weekend, for now, as always . . . it's a strange number, magic in a way . . . so praise, thankee, praise more, thankee more, keep the wheels rolling, the pen moving, the music ever on . . .

On this week's show:
 
* Featured New Rock Album: Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, *Push the Sky Away* (2013) . . . Like Leonard Cohen, this show had not gotten around to featuring the music of Nick Cave . . . &, like Cohen, time to rectify that . . . Cave's music is dark, moody, brooding . . . it's beautiful & weird, sounds powerfully ancient . . . "If you got everything and you don't want no more/ You've got to just keep on pushing, keep on pushing/ Push the sky away . . . "

* Featured Classic Rock Album Redux: Grateful Dead, *American Beauty* (1970) . . . Featured previously on this show on both 8/12/2001 & 6/16/2007, time to dig into this classic again . . . a psychedelic rock album with acoustic guitars, with an Americana feel to its sound, lyrics that tug & elude, again & again . . . especial proof, though there are others, that the Dead could make the recording studio their beautiful instrument as much as the live stage . . .

* Storybook Time*: Continuing Chapter 12 of *The Unconsoled* by Kasuo Ishiguro . . .

* Readings from *Bags End News*, & *Labyrinthine* . . . & this week featured artists are more of those featured on "American Top 40 with Casey Kasem" back on June 7, 1986 . . . my pen calls me to do more, do deeper, make art now, Make Art Now, MAKE ART NOW . . .

The Long House / What's happened to the Lycaeum ???
« Last post by Fran on June 13, 2017, 11:51:29 AM »
Hi all,


Very sorry to bother you all with my dumb question, I'm not a speaker but a serious reader of you all. And I know that they're lycaeumites among you all.
My question is : Is there anybody who know why the Lycaeum is down ?? And if it 'll be on line again ? I really miss it (and I'm not the only one about it), and I think it's really sad that a web community and website with SO serious contain is offline. It's such a loss and so unfair. As it would be a really big loss if Erowid will be offline. Especially at our trouble time, with the reign of conservatives, oligarchy, inhuman drug policies, etc ...All the writings on the Lycaeum are really PRECIOUS according to me ...(it's just my advice, ok ?)
At least it would be amazing if we can consult it as a web archives ...(forums AND LEDA, and all the archives, of course)
(I was thinking to ask to Andrew, but I'm afraid that he tell me he doesn't give a fuck at all ...  Oo" )
Hope that I didn't bothered anybody here,
Long live to the SP community,
Love you all ...

On this week's show:
 
* Featured New Rock Album: Slowdive, *Slowdive* (2017)  . . . Slowdive was a British dreampop band around in the early 1990s, made a splash for awhile, disbanded in 1995 . . . then in 2014 they reunited, toured, & eventually released this new album of music . . . they are a band best enjoyed at night, somewhere relaxed, maybe soft . . . then their hypnotic tunes best work their magicks . . . their old albums are pretty good, but the new one is just a happy strange joy of a thing . . .

* Featured Classic Rock Album: Nirvana, *MTV Unplugged in New York* (1994) . . . Seattle band Nirvana played this popular, & quite good, MTV show in November 1993 . . . their leader, Kurt Cobain, killed himself in April 1994 . . . the album of this show was released in November 1994 . . . so the show existed as a great thing on MTV for a few months, & then as a sad testament as a record thereafter . . . Nirvana was becoming something more than its grunge roots, something even more powerful & beautiful . . . had Cobain beat his demons, who knows how good . . . as it stands, this record, of a show occurring after their three albums, gives us this band at its apex creatively, before the fall . . . its unbelievably good . . .

* Storybook Time*: Continuing Chapter 12 of *The Unconsoled* by Kasuo Ishiguro . . .

* Readings from *Many Musics*, *Bags End News*, & *Labyrinthine* . . . & this week featured artists are some of those featured on "American Top 40 with Casey Kasem" back on June 7, 1986 . . . long summer is creeping into New England, even as the green everywhere here has enjoyed a sunny rainy spring so fine . . . time to dig in against the heat . . .

I often do my tai chi with eyes closed. Now I think my balance is better because of that. I sense the way I'm leaning and can sway back and forth or turn and move with eyes closed and no worries about falling

On this week's show:
 
* Featured New Rock Album: Leonard Cohen, *Old Ideas* (2012)  . . . Can't seem to get away from the late Leonard Cohen's late work . . . it's raw & funny & weird . . . it's beautiful & tender & powerful . . . there's a potent force to his songs that pulls one's ears along, a powerful water-like current, the temptation to jump in, ride along . . . no reason not to . . . let's go!

* Featured Classic Rock Album: Patty Griffin, *Living with Ghosts* (1996) . . . It was my beloved KD who has brought me into Griffin's sphere of music over the years, & I think at last I've paid the right amount of attention to her debut album . . . mostly just her big, beautiful voice, acoustic guitar, & passionate, deeply, feelingly, smart words, autumnal lyrics of the heart . . . finally arrived to her high hills of thought & feeling . . . what a view!

* Storybook Time*: Continuing Chapter 12 of *The Unconsoled* by Kasuo Ishiguro . . .

* Readings from *Bags End News* & *Labyrinthine* . . . & this week featured artist is Don Henley, & a few golden nuggets from his 1980s work . . . several weeks off, so SO back in action now, & ready to roll straight through many weekends of late spring & summer . . . here goes!
