JANDEK COMES ALIVE! UPDATE!

We've heard from one listener who is considering checking out Jandek live in New York. Here's the latest on the Austin, TX and New Orleans dates:

Austin (the first ever U.S. live date) goes on sale Saturday, the 30th. Click here for info.

New Orleans went on sale on the 27th. Click here for info.

Both shows are will call sales, meaning you buy the tickets and pick them up the day of the show at the theater box office. Drat. For a moment I was actually thinking of buying a ticket and having it sent to me as a souvenir.

The New York show, from what I understand, will not have tickets available on the internet.

In other Jandek news, we now know what kind of tea Jandek drinks.

SONY BUSTED IN PAYOLA SCANDAL!

You ever listen to commercial radio and wonder how in the heck a horrible horrible song ever received airplay? Maybe you should read this press release from the New York State Attorney General. It explains the settlement Sony agreed to for using payola to get its records played on the radio.

Here's how Encarta defines Payola:
pay·o·la (plural pay·o·las (informal))
noun
bribe for promoting product: a payment given in exchange for promoting a commercial product, or the system of making such payments, especially to disc jockeys
[Mid-20th century.]

Is it any wonder why that fantastic fantastic fantastic band you love that is on a small indie label doesn't get airplay on the radio? How can it compete when big labels are bribing with computers, flights to concerts, digital cameras, and let's not forget CASH? Read the Sony memos and e-mails included at the end of the press release for a detailed look at the whole pay to play situation.

Sony's settlement? Ten million dollars. That's lunch money to Sony.

It's not like Payola is new. It destroyed the career of Alan Freed, the DJ that coined the phrase "rock and roll", and scandalized Dick Clark in the early days of his career.

I'd say money talks and B.S. walks, but the money is the getting the B.S. airplay.

Anyway, this is an interesting look at what corporations will do to break product. ENJOY!

JANDEK COMES ALIVE!

You guys must know about our Jandek fixation by now. For me it started as a powerful loathing of what I found to be some of the most abrasive music I've ever heard. Then came the documentary Jandek On Corwood. This is a film that tells you nothing about Jandek, but at the same time tells you all about Jandek. Seriously, watch the film. If you are curious about the man, see this film, THEN go and get the music. It will prepare you fore what you will hear.

We try and prepare people for the music when we play it on the show, but that always turns into a five minute rambling dialogue. There's no way you can prepare people for this stuff without going on and on about it, and even then what they hear will be unexpected.

Long story short: Jandek has put out 42 albums since 1978 (three of them since this January). He did one interview early on, but from then on it was a vault of silence. A few times a year he'd put out some albums of enigmatic music. Stuff that has been described as the sound of being awake for three days and feeling like your nerves are frayed. Album cover photos that look like they are the last shot on a roll of film.

Then, last October he played a live date. Not only that, he played WITH PEOPLE. We went on a great length about it on the blog. About six months later he played two more dates. Now, suddenly, he's playing three U.S. dates.

The guy is such a riddle. So much so that we around here at Shuffle Function were actually looking into flying down to Austin, TX to catch the first one on August 28th. I can't even bring myself to head up to the Twin Cities to catch a cool band, but suddenly I'll consider dropping a couple hundred bucks to see the Howard Hughes of outsider music.

Yeah, so you can probably tell that I've become a Jandek convert. After seeing Jandek on Corwood I went out and bought all the CDs (forty at that point) and am in the process of ordering the latests releases. PLUS he's also putting out a DVD of the first performance! We'll actually get to see Jandek's "stage presence".

Here's some links on the subject:
Billboard magazine mentions the live shows, along with BON JOVI.
Pitchfork drops the uber-hip to comment with astonishment.
The best Jandek site on the web has some mentions, as well as links to the venues that Jandek will be playing at. Browse this site for information on all things Jandekian.

That's all for now. Still more mysteries than answers when it comes to Jandek, but that's half the fun.

ANNIVERSARY SWAG SPECIFICS!

Here's the low-down for winning the Music Geek packs:

When you hear the rooster crow during our morning show anniversary show on July 26th, be the first caller (507-389-5678 or 1-800-456-7810) to sing as much as you know of the morning show theme LIVE ON THE AIR and you will win. We have four of these things, so we'll be looking for a winner every half hour. NOTE: We will ask for verification that you actually know the theme before we put you on the air!

The Music Geek pack has Shuffle Function swag, as well as vinyl, CDs, toys, etc. etc. Loads of stuff to keep you distracted.

NOTE, part 2: Family members of Shuffle Function, as well as employees and volunteers of KMSU, are not eligible to win. Sorry, Grandma!

Tune in Tuesday, July 26th, for your chance to win! Also, since it is year one we are only playing the first track off of CDs and vinyl. Dig for your requests now!

Thanks for everything!

THE ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY IS THE VINYL ANNIVERSARY!

Wow! First off, it is Sunday the 24th of July, so you want to run right out and grab a copy of the Mankato Free Press. We are actually in this issue TWICE! There's a couple of great articles by Amanda Dyslin. The front page article is about blogs in the area, and has a few paragraphs about (and a photo of) the blog. In the Valley section, there's also a great write up about the first anniversary of the Morning Show. Loads of quotes that will likely piss off fans of James, White Stripes, and Jimmy Buffet, but that can't be helped. There's also a nice clip-and-save thing with the Pop Music Pajama Party lineup, so you can save that if your printer is on the fritz.

Anyway, big Shuffle Function 21 Music Geek salute to Amanda. Next time we see you the coffee will be on us!

Which brings us to the anniversary show...

Tuesday the 26th of July is the day we are marking it. We are only going to play track one off of CDs since we are marking year one of the a.m. show. Note, however, that if you request something off of an LP (because we are all about celebrating vinyl) it can be the first song off of side A or side B. That's the only loop hole. Otherwise, only track one will be honored on this day.

Also, we've assembled some elaborate gift packs that we will be giving away. Four of them to be exact. One for each half hour. Listen to the show for specifics, but what we will require is that the person who wants one MUST SING OUR MORNING SHOW THEME LIVE ON THE RADIO! No slackers! You must sing the theme song! If you don't know it, please don't call. The gift pack has vinyl and cds and a shirt and stickers and loads more random stuff that should keep the easily distracted music geek busy for a few hours.

Again... THE ONLY WAY TO WIN IS TO SING THE MORNING SHOW THEME LIVE ON THE RADIO!

Thanks for playing, and thanks for all your support!

WORKIN' ON A LINK FARM

First off, head down to the previous post. The Pop Music Pajama Party season 2005 is very nearly here and I want to make sure everyone notes the dates. The PMPJPs are some of the highlights of the Shuffle Function nighttime schedule, so I hope you all enjoy them as much as we do. I think the enthusiasm and energy we put into these stupid little productions really shines through this year.

Now, here's some cool links I've scrounged up for you:

SONG POEMS! TWO ALBUMS WORTH!
We don't play song poems as often as we should on the show. You know how sometimes you look in the back of old magazines or comics and you see ads stating that your poem will be considered for a possible recording session? Well, the truth is that every poem that is accompanied by a cash payment would be recorded. Would it have to be a quality poem? As the recordings at this link would indicate, the answer is no. Song poems are a weird weird thing. I could explain, but they do the job better. All courtesy of our friends at the brilliant WFMU.

If these songs wet your whistle, check out the documentary Off The Charts: The Song Poem Story. You actually get to meet some of the writers and performers that are behind this unique genre.

GO HOME PRODUCTIONS!
Mark Vidler (aka Go Home Productions) has posted a CDs worth of his earliest Mash-ups on his website, including A Slim McShady (Eminem vs. Paul McCartney and Wings). You may remember Mark from the interview we conducted with him (it was all transatlantic phone call and London and etc.) . It was one of our more popular night time shows, and we featured many of the tracks that he currently has available.

Mark is one of the best in this medium, and his career has really taken off since we spoke to him. He has recently composed the music for a BBC series called Fact Hunt, and he's done a remix of Gang of Four's To Hell With Poverty. Keep visiting his site because he always has something interesting going on.

Click on the mp3 link at the top of the page and feast on the GHP magic!

THE D! THE MOVIE!!!

FINALLY! The Tenacious D film is happening! Follow this link to the official film site. Not much on there yet, but there is the first of what looks to be a series of "webisodes" covering the making of the film. I can't wait to get my socks rocked off in a movie theater!

JUST DON'T CALL HIM ASH!
For all you kids lounging around on Wednesday, the 27th! Head up to the U of M Bookstore and bask in the glow of Bruce Campbell, who will be signing copies of hilarious new book Make Love The Bruce Campbell Way. Later on he'll be presenting his film The Man With The Screaming Brain at The Oak Street Cinema. I've heard the screenings are sold out, but apparently there are still line openings for the signing. Good... Bad... He's the one with the booksigning.

In local news, there's apparently a big comedy show at the Midwest Wireless Civic Center coming up that features four comedians that are on Bob and Tom, one of the other morning shows in town. If you are familiar with their show, then that is probably why you listen to us in the mornings! Anyway, it should be an evening of laughs, each comedian's comedy more soul crushing than the previous, until suddenly it is Monday again and you have to go back to work. Sound like a good time? I agree.

That's all for now. Thanks for all your support and for keeping public radio alive in Southern Minnesota! You guys are simply SHARKWEEK!

PUT ON THE JAMMIES AND PASS THE POPCORN PLEASE

Shuffle Function is pleased to announce the line up for the FIFTH season of Pop Music Pajama Parties. Mark your calendars, print this off and tape it to the fridge door, or tie a yellow ribbon round the old oak tree. Every show (except the first) features one musician or band exclusively, as well as our chaotic self indulgent radio dramas and what have yous. Appearing every Thursday night from 6 to 7 pm is:

August 4th - Our annual COVERS show always starts off the Pop Music Pajama Party season. Musicians singing other people's songs, it's just that easy and it's Ira Glass's favorite show.

August 11 - The band that goes to 11, GUITAR WOLF. (Warning: KMSU is not responsible for hearing loss or stereo damage that may occur upon impact)

August 18 - The band, THE BAND. I like to use the word seminal when I talk about this band, and not just because I like to use the word seminal.

August 25 - Joy Division. Enough said.

These are always some of our favorite shows, and this year is proving to be no exception. Tell your friends, family, and complete strangers on the street about the Pop Music Pajama Party dates, and don't forget - you can listen online at kmsu.org - just click on the "listen on-line" button.
