      Annual Best Top Faves & Other Choice Raves of 2001

      "I Love drinking now and then.
      It defecates the standing pool of thought."
      * Robert Burns

      "Bizz Top 20 over 2001" will be published on 23 January 2002 in the
      Dutch music industry magazine Muziek en Beeld, which will include the
      final Top 20 as voted on by people in the Dutch music world. All of
      the individual lists will also be available via email. More info:

      Inspired by this invitation and the fact that its the end of the year
      AND my 100th Anniversary show at Radio 100, I decided to do two shows
      devoted to faves: my overnight on Radio 100 concentrating on total
      discs that I liked and my Xmas eve show on Radio Patapoe
      concentrating on single cuts I really got hooked on. [SEE BELOW]. My
      choices were based on pure pleasure, the surprise of sound, the
      repeat plays on air AND at home [both thru air and on cordless

      System: the cuts in the 2 playlists below are numbered as to their
      placement in my "Bizz Top 27". Other discs played either needed to be
      reheard [PiL] or included although released in 2000 [Tosca] or were
      really really good but just missed making the list [Tennis, Janek
      Schaefer] or were part of my tribute to friend/DJ, Frank Balesteri
      [Vanilla Bean] who passed on into the great white noise in November.
      All these discs I have written about throughout the year. If you need
      contact or other info just ask.

      [*] "The Price Is Beans" was produced and compiled by his sometime
      sidekick WFMU DJ & wily/wryly-humored Jim Price in 2001. Frank
      "Vanilla Bean" Balesteri who was the insanely inventive,
      unpredictable, turbulent, dynamic inspiration for many a DJ at WFMU
      [NY/NJ]. He wasn't only good with freestylin' talk and jive, he also
      had excellent musical taste and a depth and breadth of musicological
      knowledge that really was amazing -- anecdotes and observations about
      almost any musician you might bandy about. Altho most notorious for
      his transgressive mouthing-off wiseguy skits and freestylin
      adlibbing, he could also get under your skin by spinning songs that
      were always irritating and godawful but somehow he made you look at
      really bad music anew - deconstruction, decontextualization? I dunno.
      He just stripped the paint right off your bonnet... or stripped all
      preconception right off whatever serves as your hard drive...

      [**] I now realize that before I became a DJ in 1986 and even after,
      how I used to record WFMU radio shows and realize how much of the
      Bean's shows survive. He also used to do a great show with sidekick
      and erstwhile near-pop-star, R. Stevie Moore, who with his Brian
      Wilson meets Captain Beefheart meets XTC pop songs was way ahead of
      most listener's time and is unjustly not appreciated [although he did
      have some somewhat popular releases in France I seem to remember].

      I am proud to announce that my playlists have begun appearing
      regularly in 3am Magazine <http://www.3ammagazine.com> under the
      title "Radiophotogram: Visual Radio".

      "For a more international, commercial feel, try 3am Magazine. . . .
      The cosmopolitan, rive gauche quality of the site is wonderfully
      obvious. From 'cutting edge short fiction' to political satire and
      music reviews, 3am is a dream publication for the young, literary and
      clued-up, and it counter-balances nicely the London/New York
      publishing behemoth." o Bill Broun, The Times (Monday April 30 2001).

      "Cool ezine 3am is worth taking a look at for a dip into the edgier
      waters of literature on the net." o Michelle Pauli, The Guardian
