efd's avatar View efd's profile Options

Every show starts with a cut from the ‘70s: Rediscovering the forgotten rockers, revisiting the once-hated disco beats, replaying the power-pop favorites. Next: copious amounts of new releases and occasional live bands. Also: I’m the biggest Nick Gilder fan on WFMU.

Upcoming events:

Wednesday, October 22nd, 9pm - Midnight: Lloyd Cole
30 years to the month after the release of Rattlesnakes English-by-way-of-Western-Massachusetts singer/songwriter Lloyd Cole stops by WFMU to play some songs, talk about his latest album, and even take part in Singles Going Steady Week! That new album, Standards (Omnivore), comes out in the USA this month; it is, as Lloyd himself says, "a rock record" made up of 10 original tunes and one cover. Lloyd Cole will appear on WFMU at 9pm on Wednesday night, Oct. 22, just ahead of his solo acoustic performance at City Winery in NYC on Thursday, Oct. 23. Be sure to tune in!

Wednesday, October 29th, 9pm - Midnight: Ultimate Painting
Ultimate Painting is a new band started by James Hoare of Veronica Falls and Jack Cooper of Mazes. After their bands toured together the two began exchanging demos and getting together for casual jam sessions. That led to some dates opening for Parquet Courts followed by a single release in August and a full-length album, due out at the end of the month on the Trouble In Mind label. The songs have a quiet guitar-driven feel reminiscent of the Velvet Underground or later-period Wire. They're playing at Cake Shop on Saturday afternoon, Oct. 25; if you miss that show you can catch them live on WFMU at 9pm on Wednesday, Oct. 29.

Wednesday, November 5th, 9pm - Midnight: The Briefs
The Briefs blasted out of Seattle in the early 2000s, releasing album after album of some of the most authentic-sounding modern punk rock you ever heard. The band won fans around the world with their take on '77 punk rock that evoked memories of the Undertones, Buzzcocks, Dead Boys and the like. After a lengthy hiatus they've been lured back out on the road by none other than The Damned for an east coast tour that will include a triumphant return to the WFMU studios! Their local dates include Irving Plaza on Halloween and the Stone Pony in Asbury Park on Saturday, Nov. 1. Get out and see them live, then tune in for more punk rock joy Wednesday night, Nov. 5, on WFMU.
