  7. Wow, quite cool. I may spread the link a bit, in my on-and-off again attempt at trying to get friends to at least appreciate some aspects of the Dead.
    I think we’re of the same mind–chaos and good songs. Those are my two criteria at least.
    Over the past year I’ve found cool things sort of by searching the archive.org forum. Things like “angry” “noisy” and the like. Just not noodly and lethargic and burnt out, please! Or powered by MIDI! Pure blecchh!

    There is, for the impatient listener, a lot of “other stuff” to sift through to get to the reward. Like the ’74 Dark Star that Chamberlin wrote about. The payoff is great, but yeah…it’s like watching a beetle or a turtle try to get upright.

    But hearing this, as well as that “Grayfolded” album, I may try a similar experiment–steering clear of the material already mined, of course.

    Lastly, I’ll mention two things that made me happy while recently perusing the book Conversations With the Dead:

    –in ’81, Garcia was talking about post-punk’s potential for taking psychedelia into new and exciting areas. Not sure if he was talking about, say, The Fall, XTC, Wire and Talking Heads, all of whom were doing just that in ’81.
    I always wished they could have somehow, instead of that bullshit MIDI stuff, they could have somehow tuned into a Daydream Nation vibe in the late 80’s. Hope against hope, I know. I’ll blame Brent and Bob with their blues crap.

    –in 87, Robert Hunter was expressing his admiration for Nina Hagen and The Smiths, in particular Morrissey’s lyrics.

    Just love when the incongruous things I love fall together…
