Leege - Maybe a dub version of that teleconference would be better? Send it along and we'll "version" it.

Ooooh this dub sounds like a theremin right now.... neato cover of N'Ecoute Pas Les Idoles! and I thought the Nina Simone original was spelled See-Line Woman - i guess Sea Lion just the Feist take on it?

3:33 PM, August 21st, 2020
Oh and now i see the track! How did i not know about theremin dub.... v inspired to play with my theremini in this way !

Ben Armstrong (host)
Hi Jas - theremin dub is a brand new release. Check the link, you will dig! Get yr theremin out! And yeah I've seen See Line Woman, See Lyin' Woman, and Sealion. It's not even Nina Simone's song proper, though she popularized it.

3:40 PM, August 21st, 2020
Just catching the end of the show post-afternoon meetings. Good grooves.
