Looks like a Mary Wingish "Three of a Kind" set in there. Thanks for turning me on to all your shows, Matthew, (during the comments of The Avant Ghetto a few weeks ago). I've listened to about 7 of your shows so far, some early and some recent ones, all of which are as great as the best WFMU programs! They would fit right in on WFMU's archives. Great programming with very informative voiceover banter. Thanks again!

Nice show, thanks for the Mars Volta, sort of a cross between the Material and Soft Machine version. I bet they heard the Material version first, and I bet they know Bill Laswell too. I wonder how many people he informed about Soft Machine? I bet a lot. Interesting tune 'We Did It Again'. I need to remember the story behind it. I'm sure Kevin listened to 'You Really Got Me' his share of times. :/ Thanks for the nod to Paul Kantner, RIP.
