Cheerful Insanity!!

A hot summer night's worth of Music! CKCU doesn't get much better than this!
Starting out in a pre-alternative, semi-noisy vein.IMHO, Jame's Chance/James white's output never got better than The live performance that was originally released on the ROIR Casette, way back when. Give thanks that much of the ROIR product has been re-issued on vinyl...
About True Friends
David Thomas - More Places Forever - Twin/Tone
White Cannibal
James Chance & The Contortions - White Cannibal - Roir
The Land Of The Living
Nomeansno - Why do They Call Me Mr. Happy? - A/T Canadian
We then take a 10-20 year leap backwards from the music of the 1st set to a more 60's/70's-oriented set. It's a set-up
At The Station
Jackal - Awake - Radioactive Canadian
Da Guadaloop
Amon Duul II - Hijack - Atco
... and I Wish I Were Stoned
Caravan - If I could Do It All Over Again, I'd Do It All Over You - Decca
We worked ourselves into a 60's-style frenzy to set the stage for a small feature on 'The Cheerful Insanity Of Giles, Giles and Fripp (the core of the original King Crimson Line-up in their late-60's pop guise). No it's not King Crimson, but it deserves a listen as a fun footnote to the origins of the band... as well as being a fun and neat LP in it's own right...
North Meadow
Giles, Giles and Fripp - The Cheerful Insanity Of - Deram
One in a Million
Giles, Giles and Fripp - The Cheerful Insanity Of - Deram
Elephant Song
Giles, Giles and Fripp - The Cheerful Insanity Of - Deram
Suite #1
Giles, Giles and Fripp - The Cheerful Insanity Of - Deram
Erudite eyes
Giles, Giles and Fripp - The Cheerful Insanity Of - Deram
Might as well follow up with a lengthy track from a band comprised of the Giles-es after they left King Crimson and Fripp's company - and I choose the song as tribute to the store that sold me the LP!
McDonald & Giles - McDonald & Giles - Cotillion
Into a bit of Classically-influenced prog, rolling into some present-day improv/jam masters!
Maniege - Les Porches - Harvest Canadian
Wind Song
Jade warrior - Kites - Island
Pa Gron Kvist
Bland Bladen - I Grovenstid - Troonsupstoons
Optic Chiasm
Oresund Music Collective - Inside Your Head - Sulatron
On finishing up ith 2 great improv/jam bands, it's time to take a look at an unheralded LP by a band without whom this kind of music would not be where it is today.
Laugh 'til You Cry/Live 'til You Die
Can - Flow Motion - Virgin
Can - Flow Motion - Virgin
Flow Motion
Can - Flow Motion - Virgin
Tinme for the headlong charge towards the last cut, time to start getting into that jazz-rock vibe, and Finishing out with a 'free' composition by Robert Wyatt as his contribution to Soft Machine's 'Third' 2xLP...
Bobberty - Theme From 'Something Else'
Gilgamesh - Another Fine Tune You've Got Me Into
Moon In June
Soft Machine - Third
