I just turned into Jon Kincaid’s show, Personality Crisis, on WREK. In the first few minutes I heard, he played Robyn Hitchcock, the New York Dolls, REM, and one of my favorite songs of all time – Robert Fripp’s “Exposure”. The Fripp version is so superior to the Peter Gabriel version, because Fripp has Terre Roche screeching away until her voice is indistinguishable from the sound of a bridge collapsing from metal fatigue. Good lord, I do love that!
This guy is a precious commodity, so he needs to be encouraged. Don’t forget, his benefit is Thursday May 6 and you can donate to his medical fund.
Good lord, he just played “The Turn-on”, which is the b-side of the Dr. Hook and the Medicine Show song (which he referred to as the greatest song ever recorded) “Baby Makes Her Blue Jeans Talk.” This song was basically a disco drone with the line “talking bout my sex drive” repeated a hundred times. Folks, this is why you need to listen (which you can do via the MP3 archive.)
And now he’s playing John Cale’s “Paris 1919”, another of my favorite songs. Wow. This is quite a night. It’s almost like he knew I’d be listening.
