Old thread >>27969 is kill, this is the new Radio Ernstiwan thread. A few things happened since the last thread: The record of concurrent listeners has been pushed to a whopping 18 by /b/-based host chvk. On /int/ we had our very first call-in show, and subsequently our first caller ever. To everyone's surprise, that worked almost without any technical issues. Our hoster is doing a good job as far as I can tell, until now I couldn't find even a single issue with our server. Frontpage integration is also complete, which makes it a lot easier to notice when a stream is on, thanks again to Ernstadmin for his work!

The radio is available here: http://radio.ernstchan.xyz:8000/
Connection data for the public stream: see pic 3. See also the beautifully crafted pic 4 for additional details.

For now we have the following recurring streams:
/int/: Album of the week stream, every Saturday at 18:00GMT+2
/b/: Prostmusik with chvk, usually on Friday 20:00GMT+2, and Kosmonauten every 2nd Thursday (may vary) 20:00GMT+2

Also there are lots of spontaneous streams. If you want to participate either as listener or as streamer and have trouble setting everything up, just ask, there are plenty of people around who have a working setup and can help you out. There is also a howto page on the radio main page, which might answer your questions.

Happy listening/streaming!

Since you already mentioned the album of the week stream, there are two things i would like to say.

  1. Here's the poll for this week https://poll.fm/10437347
  2. This weeks stream will be moved to Sunday at 18:00GMT+2
The reason for this is that i wanted to make a little Prog Rock marathon this week and it would be way better for me to find the 5 to 10 hours this will take on saturday.
So, if you're interested, we're going to have a nice compilation of King Crimson, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Yes, Novalis, Frank Zappa, Pink Floyd and others.
I might also have a break with a little talk show in case we find enough people willing to joing a voice group chat.

For some reason, even though I've been a huge prog/rock/metal fan for years, I never got round to listening to King Crimson. I honestly have no idea how it happened.

I apparently chose the right time to explore their music, Fripp for years was militant about taking down any KC from YouTube but he's changed his tune and put it all up himself. Their live performances are very interesting, they use three drummers onstage simultaneously.

They're part of that whole nu noise-pop / shoegaze subculture that resurfaced for some time in 2008-2012 or so, but with a punkish / surf rock twist.

I really like those "wall of sound" type musics, particularly if instrumental. That's why I've been into doom metal for a long time.

There's about 5 minutes left, anyone wants me to stream one more album? It's also sorta punkish, but with vocals and stuff.

Starting up in 30 minutes. Going to do something of a mini world tour. Starting with 3 albums but can extend it if people would like me to.

  1. Booze & Glory - As Bold As Brass
Starting us off with a bit of easy listening from England. The album is full of anthemic sing-along sections and is generally very uplifting.

2. Legion 76 - Banners Fall
Next up we will jump across the Pond and listen to some music from Philadelphia in what I consider to be some of the best that Yankeestan has to offer. It feels American stylistically and thematically but isn't just barely reskinned Hardcore like so much of their scene seems to be.

3. Razorcut - Common Enemy
Aussie music time. These guys are from Melbourne and are one of the more palatable bands that we have to offer so that I can end off on a 'softer' note for lack of a better term. Aussie Oi! is typically a hybrid between Yank and Pom Oi! in that we are more 'hard' than the traditional English style thanks to AC/DC, Rose Tattoo etc., but still more anthemic than a lot of American styles.

Playing the last song now. It's nearly midnight and while I'm not particularly tired, I should probably sleep. Hope the sound was clear, and my musical taste not too offensive :-DDD

It's kind of weird how much work I can get done while streaming. I dunno why, but I managed to hammer out the better half a dungeon generator, and an outline for a Colonial Australia themed OSR zine. There's a weird motivation even though any listeners are completely incapable of knowing that I'm working on other shit.

Going live in five. Gotta take a piss first.

I'm going to continue with what I did the other day and not play albums from the same country (unless I decide to theme a stream around a country or specific band or some crap like that). So today we have albums from three European bands as a short sampler of the European scene:

>Royal Oi! - Bootboys and Hooligans
Representing the UK is this band from Scotland. They have mixed vocals, occasionally bad English and positively nuclear energy.

>City Saints - Guns of Gothenburg
Obviously, these guys are from Sweden. They're going in the middle because they let us come out of the gates hard, smooth it out a bit and let ourselves recover to some 'easy listening' and then dive back into it with

>Skinflicks - Luxembourg's Most Hated
Three guesses as to where they're from. These guys are going to finish it up tonight with some good old angry oi oi music. These guys are more Combat 84 than they are Rejects or Sparrer though.

Didn't make the cut, maybe another time list:
>1984 - Never Forget (France)
>Crim - Pare Nostre Que Esteu a L'Infern (Catalonia)
>Stomper 98 - Für Die Ewigkeit (Germany)
>Haymaker - We Apologize to Nobody (Czech Republic)

In fact, I woke up just before the radio started and thought I'd missed again.
Then I had to do some timezone calculations to figure out what time it was in UTC, and in Australia, and how that translated to GMT+6. Then I thought, "wait, this doesn't seem right", and that's when the radio started.
True story.

Actually, I just realized that I have no business streaming demos and outtakes to someone who is not already familiar with mainstream Ween.
So we'll have a change of plans and I'll stream the actual album, The Mollusk, first.
The second album will remain unchanged.

Later in the week I will stream their major releases, then some more outtake albums, then finally we'll dig deep into early stuff, and then some really brown raw tapes, if time allows. I kinda want to stream my entire ween collection at least once on the radio, because they're basically my favorite band, and their albums are all very different, so there's always something new to experience.

Volume it ok for me, as well. Definitely lower, but that just means I'm listening on 2 or 3 instead of 1 or 2.

>the company of 1 man is still better than listening alone, isn't it?
Yeah, there is a world of difference between 1 and 0. Most of the time I stream things, it's just what I happen to be listening to. But if I push a few buttons and go live, and an Ernst gives an ear, then there is a real sense of community finding someone who wants to hear it too.

That last Ween album was incredible. The best part of a live recording is when you can hear how much fun the band is having on stage, and they were definitely having fun. When one of them asked for more cheap lager, I just know he had to be talking about Labatt's. Thanks for streaming.

Thanks for the pointer.
There's also the browntracker for Ween bootlegs and b sides:

I didn't know they were uploading their stuff to archive.org . Unfortunately, out government blocked the website due to political reasons (access to deleted "illegal" content), so I have to use a vpn.

Man, the live versions of Tender Situation are tear inducingly soulful
Their early stuff, back when it was just the two of them and they were working shitty jobs at gas stations and food service, is my favorite era of Ween. But the recordings themselves are very rough, and they only had a tape deck to accompany them, so the aesthetic is not for everyone. The live versions are cleaner, but don't capture that lo fi, janky feel. Personally I like both, and which version I prefer depends on an individual song.

But I like Jerusalem a lot more, it has a fuller, deeper tone than Dopesmoker, which feels a bit overproduced. But check out Dopesmoker on Youtube if you're interested in hearing the difference.

No. 32354
No problem, I guess I should announce the stream earlier and maybe negotiate time slots. I've been a bit spontaneous recently, just getting an itch to listen to a record, and streaming it.
But there's a potential solution to this as well, setting up a dedicated EC server, and micspamming the radio :-DDDDD.

Playing games with Ernst sounds like a lot of fun, but I'm not really into Counter-Strike, more of a TF2 person myself.

If you're the Aussie under British occupation, I'd like to assure you that I'm planning on switching to a more Aussie-friendly time schedule, because staying up to 5 AM has not been healthy for me :-DDDD.

Probably going to start streaming at roughly around 11-12 AM zulu time during the weekends more as that seems to be the ideal time for intercontinental activities. We could even stream stuff back to back.
Also, more Ween soon.
No. 32359
Yes, that's me. I sometimes put things you've posted on in the kitchen which raises a few eyebrows from customers who come too close (though my usual music does it too, especially when they have kids :-DDDDDD).

Also noice regarding stream times. Back-to-back streams seems fun, and with my new work schedule, I should be able to listen to most of your stream too because I get an extra hour or so before starting in a couple of weeks.

Since this evening will be booked by album of the week and prostmuzik, I think I'll do my Ween stream tomorrow.
But I'm not sure when and who will be available, especially US Ernst. If anyone wants to clarify their preferred time slot in terms of UTC, I'd appreciate it.

For now my plan is to stream some heavy and abrasive stoner/sludge right after aussie's 9 AM UTC stream, then continue with Ween at the usual time of 7 PM UTC. Well, I'd prefer to do the Ween stream earlier in the day, so I could at least have a chance at fixing my sleep schedule, but changing the time slot abruptly after several streams seems like a dick move.

If anyone wants me to change the time slot, or switch the streams around, please make a reply.

If you wanted to move Ween earlier than 1900(UTC) to fix your schedule, you should go ahead and do that. Just not before 1500(UTC) please :^DD.

Oh, I just assumed it'd be every Saturday.
Then maybe I could fill out the time slot instead, being Saturday and all. Unless somebody else wants to have a go.

Alright sounds good.
I think I figured out which Ween albums I want to stream and in what order. Their sound evolved gradually album to album, so it's hard to make a clean separation in their discography and pick just two for the night. So I decided to leave out a couple of outlier records, and pick the ones that represent their sound the best.

Next will be the last of the "palatable" ones :-D
Chocolate and Cheese: their first really "mainstream" album, where the technical quality of their sound increased greatly due to being signed up with Electra records, but they still had that early weirdness carrying over.
Quebec: the latest iteration of their sound. The record happened during a tough period in band's history, and it is a noticeable downer sound, even if there is a facade of whimsy covering it up.
In between those we have 12 Golden Country Greats and The Mollusk, which we have already listened to, and White Pepper.
I left out White Pepper, which, despite having some classic tunes, is a bit conceptually bland compared to the rest.

After that we'll have the early, rough stuff.
GodWeenSatan: The Oneness is their debut album. It's heavy, it's bold, it's batshit insane at time, and also really funny. You could call it a "parody" of classic rock and pop musical tropes, but I prefer to call it a deconstruction.
The Pod: their second album, and although it is a logical conclusion to GodWeenSatan in terms of being a deconstruction of various musical genres, thematically it's quite far removed. It's dark, muddy, uh, minimalist, extremely lo-fi. It's been called... unlistenable by some. Imagine a couple guys recording an album on a shitty tape deck while fucked up on shrooms. That's pretty much what happened, according to some interviews.
Pure Guava: the last album before transitioning to their new sound, where it feels like they gathered up all of their good left over material and released it, as to not leave anything out from that era of their sound. It's not as cohesive as the others, but it has some great tunes, and it's a more relaxed experience than the previous two.

I'm thinking of leaving out The Pod because it's not a casual listen. Even I have to be in a particular mood to sit through it from start to end.
I guess those two leftover albums could be something to explore personally later on.
After that we'll do some bootlegs and stuff.

For tomorrow's stoner/sludge stream, I'm not sure what to pick. Too many options.
I'll list the general feel of the various subgenres, and you can pick which ones sound the most appealing so I can narrow it down.

Classic Sludge - a sinister cascade of unpleasant sounds. Might feature drunk rednecks (and sometimes British ex cons) screaming very loudly.
Also sludge, but instrumental. less screaming, more immersion into sonic chaos.
Stoner Doom - weed soaked buzzing, warm fuzzy riffs to groove to. Some screaming.
Stoner with psychedelic elements. A drug fueled spiritual journey into the mind. Might meet God-aliens and mushroom creatures on the way.
Good, old fashioned, family friendly Satan worship and occultism. Wailing vocals, atmosphere of despair. Your electric wizards and their acolytes.

If no preference, I will probably go with instrumental sludge or stoner doom.

Thanks for streaming, it was nice.

I'll stick around a bit. It's always interesting to hear raw recordings like that.

The winner for the Classic Album of the Week seems to be "Iron Maiden - Fear of the Dark".
We will start at 18:00 Germany time.

The winner has been replaced in the poll with "The Offspring - Americana".
Since it never got any votes we also got rid of "Rage Against the Machine - Rage Against the Machine", it might make a comeback at some time in the future, for now it has been replaced with "Massive Attack - Mezzanine".

Random fact:
Messanine is the first music album that has ever been released in the form of DNA.

Streaming in a half hour. The usual kind of stuff. Theme this week was a challenge that I set myself. Find three albums with female vocals from different countries.

I'm going to start out with some heat.

>Pissed on Arrival - Here We Go Again
This is classic, old school punk in terms of content. This is anti-authority, anti-religion, anti-collectivist. It's not RAC garbo, but it's not PC-Punk.

After that is something a bit more unique.
>Jenny Woo - My Revenge
The artist is controversial. I actually like her music but it is not traditional in any way. Thematically it's pretty standard but it's largely built around an acoustic foundation. I'm putting it in the middle so that we can end on some more traditional sounding music.

>Hard Skin - Why Do Birds Suddenly Appear?
So this is actually an alternate version of their other album called 'On the Balls'. They released at the same time with On the Balls being a normal Hard Skin album and this one being an album of covers by female vocalists. Hard Skin is a difficult fish to fry though. They're a satire band who is simultaneously taking a swipe at and writing a love letter to the genre. Personally I really like it since I can have a laugh at myself, but this album especially leans more on the taking a swipe side than most because of the fact that it's a satirical spinoff of an already satirical album.

Tuning in. By the way, just patched the server this morning, and saw this. Radio has been up since literally forever, not a single interruption, not even server patches seem to disturb the service.

Alright coming up on the final album/ep/whatever you want to call it after this song. These replacements were a gamble since I haven't listened to them before now neither. First listen for all of us :-D

The Red Scare Industries comp is pretty much exactly how it was described on Dying Scene (which I trust to an extent), as a mixtape of things that you wouldn't normally listen to but you were sat down and told to listen to by a friend with good taste. I dunno about you guys, but I concur. I didn't like it all, but overall it was worth the listen and I'll probably do so again. It was maybe a bit off-tone from my usual Oi! stream to go into mainline punk, but whatever. Sue me. If you did particularly like the break from usual, let me know and I can break up my genres some more.

I really like the Lion's Law EP though. Glad I finished on it too. Let's not get too carried away on this off-tone shit after all, we're here for angry angry lads singing angry angry songs. It's not their best work, but it isn't a disappointment like some recent releases I've heard from great artists cough*Raygun Cowboys*cough. If Brick is one of my two listeners, you may recognise them as the band that popped your Oi! cherry :-DDD

As usual, thanks for listening, hope you enjoyed it and I'll assume that you did if you lasted through the end. Once again, sorry for my fuckup with the first album, hope it didn't sour the rest too much :-D

I'll post some trivia regarding the songs we will listen to this stream. Hope it's at least mildly interesting.

Spinal meningitis was conceived from reading a newspaper article about a "Spirit healer" scam artist from West Virginia who opened his own clinic. One of his brainwashed patients referred to "spinal meningitis" as "Smile on, Mighty Jesus", and the song was born from that. The song isn't meant to be mocking or goofy, but rather convey a real fear of death and sickness. Spirit healers are one of my topics of interest, and possibly one of the most fucked up things I've come across in my study of contemporary Americana, up there with murderous / suicidal cults, serial killers and such.

A Tear For Eddie is a tribute song written in mourning for Eddie Hazel. Dean (the band's guitarist) also does a mean Maggot Brain cover: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bsHXa_beXp8

Roses Are Free was once taken by Phish (a hipster/hippie jam band) as a live number, and almost became associated with Phish. Ween really hates Phish and their fans, because they once made them wait under the rain for an hour during a live set, while they noodled around "jamming". Phish fans would also frequently buy out tickets for Ween shows, not leaving enough for Ween fans. Dean also hates hippies.

What Deaner Was Talking about is a song about anxiety and panic attacks. Dean used to suffer from severe anxiety attacks before live shows, and would wear a rubber band around his wrist, which he'd snap against his skin to remind himself to calm himself down. The band's vocalist / songwriter, Gene, after experiencing a severe panic attack himself, wrote this song, "What Deaner was talking about".

Zoloft from Quebec is a song, well, about being under SSRIs. And I think it conveys the feeling perfectly. SSRIs numb your emotions and create a fake sense of calm, but you can always feel the sadness and anxiety droning away, muted in the background.

Transdermal Celebration also has an interesting story behind it:
>I think enough time has passed where I can finally tell my favorite Ween story of all-time. The businesses and the people involved have long since closed their doors and moved on for good and hopefully the people involved (and Carlos himself, if it comes to that) will have a good sense of humor about this story.

>In 2003 Ween released our album Quebec on Sanctuary Records. We worked on the album for two years in our beach house in Holgate, NJ, a rented house in the Pocono Mountains of PA, the garage behind Aaron’s house in Pt. Pleasant, PA, my upstairs guest room, and finally Andrew Weiss’s living room in NJ. We also worked at Water Music in Hoboken, NJ and Graphic Sound Studios in Ringoes, NJ. It was not a great period in our personal lives, Aaron was going through a divorce and I was partying way too hard myself — it was some dark shit. The record is one of my favorites, but it is a depressing album lyrically. It was not an easy record to make either, as evidenced by the amount of places we worked, trying to find the right environment. There are demos available online that I posted where you can hear the process at work, we racked up our normal batch of like 6 dozen songs or more before whittling it down to what was finally released, 15 tunes.

>I am a huge fan of Carlos Santana. He is one of my favorite guitarists of all-time. He is playing better these days than ever before in my opinion. His music is more radio friendly, for sure, but as a guitarist he has aged like a fine wine. Only Neil Young, Prince, and a small handful of others can make that claim as they become members of the AARP.

>We were working in Andrew’s living room on the song “Transdermal Celebration,” our drummer Claude Coleman had just gotten into a horrific car crash and left us without a drummer for the recording and ensuing tour. Eventually it worked itself out where the record took so long to complete that Claude made enough of a recovery to do the world tour with us supporting Quebec. In the meantime though, even though Claude had played on some of the demos, drumming on the album was left up to me, Josh Freese, and Sim Cain.

>“Transdermal Celebration” had been recorded three times by this point, with a drum machine, with Claude playing drums, and the final take on the album which features Josh Freese. It was the eventual single from the album. So, we’re in the middle of this session and I get a phone call from my roadie (nameless) who also worked for a backline company (nameless) that supplied amps, drums, lights, etc. to bands touring in the Northeast. My roadie told me that Carlos Santana’s equipment (including his guitars) had arrived via a trucking company that night at their depot. Carlos was recording an appearance on “Good Morning America” the next morning and his equipment was to be delivered to the set in NYC in a few hours.

>What needed to be done was immediately clear to me, I had an opportunity to play the solo on “Transdermal Celebration” through Carlos Santana’s amplifier and guitar. I had one shot at it, it meant taking a hard disk recorder to a storage space where all of Carlos’ stuff was sitting in transit. I arrived at 2 a.m. We (very carefully) unpacked his equipment and set up his stage gear and in one take I recorded the guitar solo for “Transdermal Celebration” (the one that appears on the album, playing through Carlos Santana’s guitar, pedalboard and amplifier. The whole thing took 10 minutes and we were terrified we were going to get caught. A lot of people would have lost their jobs. We got the fuck outta there really fast after that. So the solo on “Transdermal Celebration” was played through all of Santana’s shit in what resembled an early morning bank heist or something…

It seems like this weeks winner is "Massive Attack - Mezzanine".
The first one to scream "It's not lupus" when hearing the Dr. House theme gets a free "good job, boy".

In the poll it has been replaced by "Iron Maiden - Piece of Mind"

And i love this music video

It starts like some mid to late 90s gangster rap video and then turns so fast into a nice walk through the city that it feels weird for a moment.

Streaming again at 0900Z, that's roughly 50 minutes from now. Theme is 'Merica. Not a whole lot to say tbh. It's loud, angry and American. Only thing of note is the understanding that the American scene tends towards an angry modern take on the Spirit of 76 when it gets political, so it's surprisingly patriotic for what it is, but it shouldn't be mistaken for government support.

Below is the record playlist:
Monk's Music
Monk's Dream

Total runtime is 6 hours, 34 minutes, and 33 seconds. I might pause a bit at some point.
I wanted to include Thelonious Monk and Sonny Rollins, as well as Thelonious in Action, but I think that would make it overly long. I've never streamed before, so I don't know how well it will go.

It was pretty simple. I just switched what butt captures from.
If I just capture from the Built-in Audio Analog Stereo, only my microphone will be recorded.
Capturing from a Monitor of Built-in Audio Analog Stereo instead of the Built-in Audio Analog Stereo sets the source of the sound from a physical device (in my case, the laptop's speakers) to a software monitor of that device.
Because I'm listening through headphones right now, audio is only recorded if ALSA captures from the software monitor.

After listening to the online player for a while, I was able to switch to VLC and it played the stream like normal. So that makes the initial failure even more mysterious. Well, at least we know it wasn't just one person- VLC was being quirky for everybody.

Thank you very much.
I did not get to play Straight, No Chaser unfortunately as I had to do something that required my laptop's audio.
If there is a way for butt to record only one application i.e. Rhythmbox instead of the entire Analog Stereo output that would have allowed me to continue.
Probably I have to use something with more features than butt for that.
Also, I want to know how to set up "currently playing" to view the current song online. On butt I was able to update the song name from an application (Rhythmbox - normally I use ncmpcpp), but this did not show up on the online stream.
No. 34201
You can output the audio from your player to a virtual device, and have butt listen to that virtual device.
Leaves the stream audio separated from the rest of the system. I do it that way, as well as listening to the songs through the radio page instead of from my own device, which lets me know first hand if there's anything wrong with the audio or connection.

What I was testing:
A lua extension to automatically update song titles from VLC called "Now Playing in texts". Both the file and instructions can be found here: https://addons.videolan.org/p/1172613/
Brief summary:
1)download .lua file
2)copy file to your /VLC/lua/extensions folder(I had to create this)
3)Restart VLC; To activate the extension, go to the Menu Bar > View > Now Playing in texts(A small check mark will appear if the extension is active). This will not remain checked, and you will need to manually activate the extension on each restart.
4)A np_title.txt file will be created in your /vlc/ folder each time a song changes
5)copy this location to the Update song name from file in BUTT and check activate
6)Enjoy no longer typing song titles :D
Don't know if this will help anyone else, but I'll put it out there in case it might. The extension should work with any OS, but I've only tested Windows. The only odd quirk I noticed, was that BUTT sometimes updated the song title multiple times(6 times on the last song I tested), but that shouldn't create any problems.

Thank you for your patience, and will take this opportunity to finally request an account from the radio help desk. I think I jump on and off the public stream often enough to justify it.

This weeks winner seems to be "Supertramp - Breakfast in America" and i replace it with "Hootie & The Blowfish - Cracked Rear View".

Maybe some of you remember that i said i will introduce something new today right before posting the picture with the albums we previously listened to on the Weekly Album Stream.
The picture was part of a little database i have in mind which includes ratings of Ernst.

How this should work:
At the end of the album (somewhere around the last track) i update the currently played song title with a link to a poll where you can vote for a number between 1 and 5, i guess i don't need to explain how scales work here.
I will also post this poll here in the thread but delete the post ~5min after it has been posted to make sure you only vote if you actually listened.
If i get more than 5 votes the rating makes it into the list.

"But what if you don't get at least 5 votes or with the albums of the past?"

Worry not, dear Ernst.
I will start to stream previous albums at random times (not at the Album Stream time, of course) and ask for votes then.

And now get ready for Breakfast in America, we start at 18:00 Germany time as always (which is in around 20minutes)
Did i forget something?

No. 35302
Ok, voted.

As for the stream, it will be something very different. It is about Horror Punk, starting from The Misfits, then the two samples This is Horror Punk 1&2 which tried to give a good overview of what emerged after the reunion of The Misfits end of the 90ties (without Glen Danzig of course) and after this some random pieces of the genre. To be honest, some psychobilly and othere familiar genres are within this playlist.

You have been warned.

And since I stram on various radios, I will not conceal I will send on RfK as well. Hope my upload capacities can handle this without too many crackles in the connection.

PS: Those captchas are horrible. Just needed 15 Minutes typing in the correct one and the server refusing to accept them. So this is the true reason for the low post frequency.

I'll stay up late tonight to stream something that isn't Ween. Hopefully, about 18:00 UTC is ok by everyone. We've got three choices (some personally nostalgic stuff broken down into periods of my life :-D).

Three classic (as much as 90s metal can be called classic) records from the Gothenburg Melodic Death Metal scene: The Gallery by Dark Tranquillity, The Jester Race by In Flames, and Slaughter of The Soul by At The Gates. The genre overall developed a pretty bad reputation, but that early stuff was pretty good, in my opinion.

Retro throwback Psychedelic Rock. "Brain Cycles" by Radio Moscow, "Blue Smoke Orange Sky" by Bad Liquor Pond, and "Love, Fear, Choices and Astronauts" by The Egocentrics (instrumental album).

Or we could open our chakras and take a journey through astral space, meeting some ancient alien gods and mushroom creatures with psych infused Stoner/Doom Metal: "A.T.O.M." by Kamni and "Tumuli Shroomaroom" by Acrimony

Thanks for the stream, I particularly enjoyed this one. The production on today's records was especially nice, and I liked the lyrics on the last record, something about folkish songs about everyday stuff get to me :-D

I think I've sorted out next week's stream already. Two angry albums and Symarip in the middle to let you dip your toe into the new stuff in a safe environment.

I thought you might like this one. I expected 'I Fit Central Heating' off of the second album to get a rise from you though, Man, this here just sold me on what the third album is going to be next week. Same band, but their most recent album release. It's full of everyday lyrics. One of my favourite lines from it is:
>Did you see next door's got a brand new car? It's much better than ours. I'll get Stanley, scratch the cunt up in the early hours.

I'll make the little advert thing later :-DDD Too bad I'm going to miss your stream though. I'll be fast asleep by then. I really do like your taste in music.

I'm feeling a bit mind foggy right now, making a lot of brainfart mistakes while writing, that's why I had to delete and repost that message.

This stuff's growing me a lot tbh. At first it was like "angry underdog music, neat", but like with any genre, as you listen more and start to soak in the ethos and philosophy of the whole subculture, the music gains a whole new level of enjoyment :-D.

Regarding streaming schedule, weekends are the only time that anyone's online during the day on EC, we have the tabletop session on Saturday, and I wouldn't want to interfere with your timeslot on Sunday, so we'll have to be content with delayed transmission in the form of looking up stuff on youtube :-DDD.

Current stream is about instrumental and ambient music. Forgot to reset the stream info, so this might be a bit irritating. Sorry you had to see this.

When in doubt, just write "Ween" and dare everyone to prove you wrong :D

Thanks for the stream, I'm really enjoying the buckethead stuff. Always been a fan of instrumental music, especially when it manages to tell a story purely through song progression, without a single word.

I see the recruitment of new acolytes into the church of Ween is going well.

Hello Ernst,

the Weekly Album Stream needs your help.

I wanted to have variety in genre and age and i guess that different countries should be represented as well and at the moment there are only 2.
I already planned in some Krautrock and other German music. We will also get some Reggae and Dancehall soon but that's about it.

I know that there are interesting albums from Italy, France, Netherlands, South America and what do i know but i can't come up with much that fits the criteria. Please help.

The criteria:

1. We only play albums that can be considered classics, a classic is an album that is:
Judged over a period of time to be of the highest quality and outstanding of its kind.
A thing which is memorable and a very good example of its kind.

Or in short: It has to maintain relevance even after a longer period of time, how long that is depends on the genre but i would say after 2000 doesn't work in most cases.

2. It should be known outside of your own country/language area.

3. I have to like it.

You have an idea? You can post it here or send it per E-Mail to make sure it's a surprise for other Ernsts (i think that would be nice)

Honestly I'm really happy about this re Musk's design. For years and years and years it has annoyed the ever loving shit out of me that completely trash iShit aesthetic that's been peddled alongside all this web3.0 garbage like shitter, shitbook, shitstagram and all the 8i there rounded edges and pastels made like crayons by 8 year olds.

I at least welcome and laud this righteous return to darker tones and sharper angles. I fucking hate everything about the 00s-10s with a fierce passion just like the 80s was a shit decade wholesale and see this as one of the first beautiful harbingers of a return to us having nice things.

Thanks for streaming, always nice to have something to listen to while doing my evening lurk routine. Missed the beginning though, was it Mars Volta all the way?

Also: would have replied earlier, but man, that captcha was unsolvable.
No. 35454
Glad you liked it. I had "Televators" stuck in my head all morning, and figured that it was a good enough reason to broadcast. And yeah, it was about an hour of random Mars Volta live performances straight through. The live 2003 CD was the first track, and I started that in the middle because I wanted a broad selection from different shows.
It was either that, or stream 1 full show, which I'll probably do at a later date. I have 3 or good ones saved.
Btw, >>35447 is a different American Ernst. I guess two of us just happened to show up at the same time :D.

This weeks winner seems to be "The Beatles - Abbey Road".
Like said previously we will now start with going more international. Anglo music is still welcome of course, but we will focus stronger on other countries for the next few weeks.
As a start we will replace this weeks winner with "Kraftwerk - Die Mensch-Maschine".
We also kicked out the 3 albums that got no votes at all (Nirvana, Ramones and The Offspring) to replace them with "Tangerine Dream - Phaedra", "Eek-a-Mouse - Wa-Do-Dem" and "Yellowman - Mister Yellowman"

I also asked for ideas for more international classics, if you missed it please see >>35446 because it could help a lot.

Here's the poll for next week

We start at 18:00CET like always, i'm a bit early so it's 4 hours from now.

Nice, looking forward to it.
I might stream something one hour before your session. Some commie folk punk about being a junkie hobo in america.
It's the kind of stuff you listen to when you're angry AND sad. Which is how I'm feeling right now tbh.

This was only my 2nd full Beatles album. I remember hearing Revolver a long time ago, but usually I just had 'best of' compilations.
Btw, I appreciated your stream which served as our opening act. Pat the Bunny's vocals are unique, but also perfect for the lyrics.

Ok, thanks for the explanation. I was afraid you had posted the link in the 'now playing' description field. That doesn't always update on my VLC mobile app.
I liked the album, and was going to give it a 5. There were a few lower rated songs, but I figured the great ones more than made up for that. There was also a kind of progressive rock sound to some of the tracks like I Want You(She So Heavy). That was a pleasant surprise.
No. 35569
It's still Anglo music I guess, but Cold Chisel's self-titled debut album is a real classic. Maybe being Australian makes it exotic enough :-DDD

Ayy fuck it. I can't be fucked making a poster thing this week. Sue me. This is the lineup for 0900Z today though. It's going to be a zinger if I say so myself, which I do.

Alright, false start aside, I'm going live.

I'm adding one more album to the stream tonight because it's going to otherwise be shorter than I'd like it to be.

You get a choice. First up is 86 by Stitched Up. It's groove metal from Texas that I discovered recently. It's pretty cool. Second option is more on-theme and is More Noize for the Boys by The Oppressed. We've had that band on before, so you'll know their sound already, just not all of these songs.

Why you guys don't like London Calling? It's one of the best punk albums ever recorded. I already had to vote for it last week to make sure it won't get kicket out with the other 0 vote albums.
No. 35590
Shieet, your stream is at weird times for me so I don't vote, but that's a fuggen great album that deserves votes. I might even chuck it on mine at some point just to give it airtime out of spite :-D.

I personally prefer Give 'Em Enough Rope, but that's just me though.

I was already thinking about doing a sunday stream every now and then where i stream previous albums.

What would be a good CET time for people from your part of the world?

Also: How long is the current stream going? I'm currently listening and might stream pic related afterwards since the interest in the Weekly Stream was so low that i took it out (shame on you guys).
No. 35593
Alright, 86 it is since I figure we're doing a weird stream this week. Might as well do the off-theme album while we're here.

I typically start at 0900Z (CET is +1? so 1000CET?) which is 7PM local. Times are hard to work.

Current stream is going for just under an hour longer. Be about 2130 here by then, but they cut my hours so I have to stay up late tonight to wake up late enough to not be exhausted by the end of my shift. I probably won't catch a full stream most weekends, but I'll listen to what I can before falling asleep. I usually listen to music before bed anyway, might as well have it curated for me :-D
No. 35594
Disclaimer, I can also make my stream earlier from now if that helps on since my core audience fits in to at least 0600Z because I'm 99% sure that the other regular is also in my game group :-D

>Why you guys don't like London Calling
I never understood why The Clash are so highly regarded. Maybe I did not hear enough of them, but before I heard that they were such a big thing, I thought they were some irrelevant 1.5-hit-wonder. Should I Stay or Should I Go sounds like a generic rock/pop-song for me, nice sound, but nothing memorable, and London Calling is in no way special for me. Maybe it was special back then, but for me it feels like a practical joke people try to play on me when everybody says how big of a deal The Clash is.

Of course I know that it's just me not gettng it, because everyone else obviously has a different opinion, but still I can't help it. It's pretty strange, because my taste in music is not that far off from the mainstream, and if a band or an album are considered all time greats, then I usually understand why and agree on it, that also goes for similar bands like Sex Pistols and Ramones. It's just The Clash that is beyond me.

I usually vote for things I have not even heard of, so I can expand my horizons. That's why I don't vote for good bands / albums that I have heard / is in my backlog, like pink floyd, iron maiden, mobb deep, etc.
Maybe I should treat the weekly stream more like "music enjoyment time", rather than "music discovery time".

The Clash, particularly with London Calling were massive innovators in the punk genre at the time, and were one of the earlier of the bigger bands to really explore the post-punk sound. They redefined the sound in a way that the Pistols until then had sort of defined it.

I thought you might like that album, a nice mix of cool aesthetics and dirty riffs. Fun fact for those that didn't pick it up, the first song is actually named for one of the most shamelessly edgy animu ever put to air.


If anyone asks, it wasn't me who accidentally unleashed the fury of Teutonic rage upon the continent again :-DDD You're welcome
