Ork RecordsOrk Records may not have become a household word during its 5-year tenure from 1975-1980, but it certainly help set the stage for several music revolutions that ended up sweeping the world. From its powerful first release by TELEVISION (“Little Johnny Jewel”), Ork Records culled many of the most innovative underground rock and pop bands from around New York City (and sometimes Memphis and the UK) to serve up a 45RPM stew that would ignite imaginations everywhere. The best of Ork was recently compiled and re-released by Chicago obscurity reissue label Numero Group, and the first CD of this astonishing 2-CD set is featured on this GE episode. Punk/DIY origins exploding, fellow music geeks!

G MercerFans of so-called “indie-rock” tend to swoon at the name FEELIES.  This legendary east-coast originated band provided the missing link between The VELVET UNDERGROUND/LOU REED/BRIAN ENO on one end and R.E.M./NEUTRAL MILK HOTEL/DECEMBERISTS on the other.  The latest instrumental album by FEELIES’ co-founder GLENN MERCER sounds like the perfect soundtrack to an imaginary road film, and incorporates all the depth, fun and surprise that the great FEELIES’ releases had in spades.  Hear interview snippets with Mr. MERCER spliced together with every cut from Incidental Hum, and then the entirety of the FEELIES’ classic Crazy Rhythms on this indie-rockerific show.  Original Geeks are the true OGs, fellow music geeks!
