I'm so glad this feature survived the programming change. Thanks for keeping the drumming going, Alex.

Count Zero is still probably one of my top 10 favorite bands.

Great playing on Nightmare Genie! Brian Chippendale is bonkers and that was an excellent attempt!

@minker17: Basic gist: We're not going to be streaming for eight hours continuously every day anymore, but also we're not necessarily getting rid of solo streams either. Idea is to balance it out with more shows, and give people some time behind the scenes to work on other stuff. Like I'm going to keep doing drumming every week, and the trucking streams will keep going (but might not be weekly--still semi-regularly though). And other folks will continue to do solo stuff where it fits in.

@alex: I propose we change "We be truckin'" to "Semi-regularly drivin' a Semi".

Just 'cause I'm curious, what was "THAT song"?

I unfortunately didn’t know any of these songs but this was still a very fun stream and that ending was mesmerizing. That would have been hell to show up on a random song night, haha

Just gonna leave this in here because Lightning Bolt / Brian Chippendale is a fucking beast, in case you need to know more and witness the monster behind that Dream Genie song.

@heatdrive88: Something I never noticed while playing that song and only after watching that video, because frankly I try to avoid it as much as possible because that song is a slog to play, is that there are no hi hat notes (yellow cymbal). He really just doesn't have a hi hat on his kit, just a ride and crash cymbal. Not completely out of the ordinary but still pretty rare.

@endlosnull: Yeah totally - instead he puts a pedal setup for his sound effects and modulation work for his left foot. Pretty cool stuff.

Cool. As long as Jason gets to "OOOOOH-HOO HOO HOO!!" on his Jason-Ass Jason Games a couple times a month, it's a good thing.

been listening to libyans - welcome to the nighborhood a lot lately

i think it must be a redone version though because it sounds dirtier and louder and has a cool 90s garage rock guitar solo
