101  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: great new BW interview (Bedroom Tapes mentioned) on: May 20, 2016, 10:31:35 PM
I realize the whole Bedroom Tapes moniker is just an umbrella term for all manner of unreleased material. it's a buzzword that indeed created some buzz... and what better time to release such a collection than later this year, to coincide with Brian's book?

Brian is basically saying a release like this will likely happen, but I love how some people still think he has no idea what he's talking about  Roll Eyes
102  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / great new BW interview (Bedroom Tapes mentioned) on: May 19, 2016, 12:38:17 PM
“Yeah, I might do that later this year,” he says when asked if the tapes might ever be released.

Brian also says he plans to keep touring. good stuff

103  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: A petition for Mike to include THAT'S NOT ME on: May 14, 2016, 12:49:15 PM
That's Not Me is one of my all-time favorite songs by anyone. I hate that it's been so overlooked by the touring group. Mike should definitely play it. and then retire for good.

but... that's not M.E.


I'd be glad to design a photoshop for the cause if you think it will help, Autotune.  Wink

sounds like Greece-ee-ah-see to me too. makes sense after the line about gay Paris-see. there's really no mistaking the "ee" sound of Greece even if you don't hear the Gr... it's not an "oo" sound.

also there's no background vocals during that section on In Concert and it still sounds like Greece. because it is.

I watched the film & Gary in it. I just wondered who of the Wrecking Crew he played.

Al Deloray

Pretty sure its Delory

or Tears in the Morning?


ugh. the list goes on and on folks

Tears is schlock, but it's not embarassing


when your favorite band records schlock and includes it on an otherwise solid album, it's embarrassing.
107  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Mike Love book out in September on: March 29, 2016, 01:49:17 PM
not a great cover, agreed.

Mike looks pretty sleazy, but that's how he rolls. he should really stop with the praying hands in every damn shot.
interesting too that Mike seems somehow separate in the group shot and the furthest away with the Wilson brothers together in the foreground. as they should be. when you think about it, Brian even provided the book's title.

how about an alternate cover contest? here's my submission. Mike seemed to like it before:

and how has no one mentioned Bruce and his f@cking shorts??

or Here Comes the Night '79?

or Tears in the Morning?


ugh. the list goes on and on folks
109  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Most embarrassing Beach Boys moment caught on tape? on: March 29, 2016, 11:08:59 AM
it's just so damn catchy. I never said I don't love it, just that it's embarrassing
110  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Most embarrassing Beach Boys moment caught on tape? on: March 29, 2016, 11:00:34 AM
Help Me Rhonda sessions

Australia '78

Hey Little Tomboy

plenty of Dennis footage

almost any Mike Love vocal after the 6os, some before

almost any live performance footage of Mike, ever

basically just about anytime Mike has ever opened his mouth or appeared on camera. honestly... is there anyone more cringe-inducing than Mike?? he's right up there with Ted Cruz, Bill Cosby, etc.

112  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: BB's cirque du soleil on: March 27, 2016, 12:16:45 PM
I'm sure Mike would be cool with that.


it's a nice idea, but I imagine it would be hard to get past all the generic fun-in-the-sun imagery and have folks really take the music seriously.

and I'm sure Mike would be cool with that.
113  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Playlist: Brian In Space on: March 26, 2016, 03:02:20 PM
fun mix.

Cabinessence has the line about constellations and Wake the World mentions the stars, etc.

Sail Plane Song might be a good fit too.
114  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Rocky Pamplin book about The Beach Boys? on: March 22, 2016, 11:34:44 PM
What virgins?? (ducking)

Who knew that, just like "Johnny Carson," the way he (Rocky) keeps it up could make you cry (with tears of laughter)?

Reading this (in whole or in part, depending on one's level of stamina...) it really is amazing that the BBs survived the 70s--the second half of the decade (and '78-'79 in particular) was just brutal.

The question that should be asked here (IMO) is what Rocky may know about the financial history of Mike Love--a man who lives up to the line in "I Just Got My Pay" ("I like spending my money")...

Don't stop at 100,000, Rocky, go for a quarter-million! Hold out for the big bucks!!

Holy crap! Someone needs to do a cover of Johnny Carson, redone as: Raw---cky... Pamp---lin!! Totally serious!!



challenge accepted. another slow night here...
 all in good fun, folks!  Grin


ROCKY PAMPLIN
(sung to the tune of Johnny Carson)


He sits there typing on the john
Rock-y Pamp-lin
He adds one more emoticon
Rock-y Pamp-lin

AGD comes on and says "hey Rocky"
Every night and day these two are so cocky
It's nice to have you on my thread tonight
A hundred thousand readers... outtasight!

When Brian was dyin' for a grasshopper please
Rock-y Pamp-lin
Or kickin' his cousin between the knees
Rock-y Pamp-lin

AGD comes on and says "hey Rocky"
Every night and day these two are so talky
Don't you think this man saved Brian's life?
Maybe we should check with Brian's wife?


Who's a man whose book needs buyers?

115  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Backing Vox 'Let's go away...' on: March 22, 2016, 02:13:41 PM
we should keep in mind Brian was very into combining instruments at this time to create a "new" instrument or sound, a la Phil Spector.

we may be hearing strings and flute in unison and/or something else
116  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Backing Vox 'Let's go away...' on: March 22, 2016, 02:10:22 PM
and to clarify, the hard "doo" sound we hear in the fade is a B note.
117  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Backing Vox 'Let's go away...' on: March 22, 2016, 01:54:27 PM
i don't think your soundcloud clip does justice to the bit in question, but I'm definitely hearing the do-doo's in the fade of the song. it's one of the only things in LGAFA that resembles a melody really. it's beautiful and I never really heard the vocal quality until you pointed it out, but I think it's just the strings fooling our ears. there's another ghostly "dooo" at around :57 (an Eb note) that sounds more like vibes to me
118  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Backing Vox 'Let's go away...' on: March 22, 2016, 01:32:56 PM
this thread is a testament to Brian's genius, that we can still discuss and possibly hear something new in a piece we've heard so many times.

I never heard anything that struck me as a vocal on LGAFA... until now.
still not sure if we're all talking about the same part(s), but I hear the do-doo's now and it doesn't strike me as flute. i believe it's a vocal-like effect created by strings, but I can't be sure. there is some tonal similarity to Brian or Carl, or even Marilyn as someone already stated.

speaking of tonal similarity, I've always thought the theremin line in IJWMFTT sounds uncannily like Brian.


119  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Check out today's Google logo on: March 09, 2016, 10:51:14 AM
and how many of us tried to play the line in Good Vibrations?  Wink
120  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Bruce (and Gene Clark) on the Dating Game?? on: March 06, 2016, 10:59:25 AM
 according to Gene Clark of the Byrds in the first minute of this radio interview, he appeared on the Dating Game with our buddy Bruce back in the day... I'm assuming it was before either achieved much success. sure would be a kick to see!

here's the interview:

121  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: BB song/songs you wish had a different lead vocalist? on: March 05, 2016, 09:29:12 PM
right. turns out Brian might not even be on that version. it sounds like an alternate Carl vocal to me
122  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: BB song/songs you wish had a different lead vocalist? on: March 05, 2016, 03:13:13 PM
I agree with more Dennis and Al in general. either could have done Tree justice and I'd love to hear Dennis and Carl's attempts at SOS.

but mostly I wish Brian had laid down more leads on his compositions, at least in demo form.
if there was just one version of Brian singing God Only knows in '66 I would die much happier. same goes for any number of songs that Carl or somebody else sang instead. it's a long list.
123  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Good Vibrations fan mixes? on: March 05, 2016, 01:15:48 PM
just wondering how many folks have made their own custom mixes of good ol' Good Vibs... I've got one version that clocks in at nearly 12 minutes, stringing together most of the session highlights we've been given.


but I'm wondering if anyone has experimented with the "gotta keep those lovin good..." section. I'm trying to mix those vocals with the  more recently-released "hum-be-da" chanting section, similar to how it's been done in concert. I'm also trying to mix the chorus vocals with the extended tag we were given on The SMiLE Sessions, which is how it's been performed live as well.

anyone else tried this? 
124  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Rocky Pamplin book about The Beach Boys? on: March 03, 2016, 11:45:30 PM
 Drumroll

and the hits just keep comin
125  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Rocky Pamplin book about The Beach Boys? on: March 03, 2016, 11:20:04 PM
slow night for me. as we eagerly await the next installment, here's the fruit of my original post. all in good fun of course!  Wink



I HIT A CLOWN


Clown clown, hit a clown, I hit a clown (yeahhh)
Hit a clown clown now (oo-woo-ooh) I hit a clown

I hit a clown (hit a clown clown now, I hit a clown)
Knocked him down (hit a clown clown now, I hit a clown)
Swingin' at his head (hit a clown clown now, I hit a clown)
He's got me seein' red (hit a clown clown now, I hit a clown)


I'm gettin' bugged at my cousin Mikey's lame-o schtick
I gotta find him backstage and kick him in the dick

My brothers and me make art while Mike gets paid
He's a clown jugglin' balls in a city parade


I hit a clown (hit a clown clown now, I hit a clown)
Knocked him down (hit a clown clown now, I hit a clown)
Swingin' at his head (hit a clown clown now, I hit a clown)
He's got me seein' red (hit a clown clown now, I hit a clown)
I hit a clown... clown... hit a clown downtown now


(guitar solo)


He always takes credit but he can't play a note
And I'll never miss when I kick him in the scrote

None of the guys try'n stop me cuz they know that I'm right
To kick cuz hard in the nards til his face turns white


I hit a clown...
(repeat chorus to fade)

For the love of god, somebody record this, PLEASE !!!

if we do that then we'll definitely need an accompanying music video.
who's got a bunch of fake beards?
