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.

Listener comments!

  Tue. 8/12/08 11:09pm Tamar:

Yay! You're getting me all in the mood for the Individuals.
  Tue. 8/12/08 11:11pm ted:

i used to think you only played funk music
  Tue. 8/12/08 11:11pm E.L.:

There's only one thing I want to say to you:

Who stole my The Bongos 7"
  Tue. 8/12/08 11:12pm Sybil:

Good evening!

Red Sox just won the most nerve racking 4+ hour game I have ever fought off an ulcer during, 19-16.

And you have no freaking idea how appropriate that first song was, efd. I'm going to throw cold water on my head now.
  Tue. 8/12/08 11:12pm Sybil:

Oops, no, Manny's at bat!
  Tue. 8/12/08 11:12pm john:

Games with football scores always cause uneasiness.
  Tue. 8/12/08 11:14pm Sybil:

Football games always cause me uneasiness. Futbol, though...
  Tue. 8/12/08 11:15pm john:

no arguments from me this time!
  Tue. 8/12/08 11:16pm efd:

hi everyone!
Tamar, glad this set is having the desired effect! Sybil, thanks for the score update - that game sounds like it was insane.
Welcome back E.L., hi john, and Ted - you can't judge a book by its cover, or a DJ by his/her nickname!
  Tue. 8/12/08 11:20pm ~L:

Nice to hear vintage yo la tengo!
  Tue. 8/12/08 11:30pm Matt:

That opening set was terrific.
  Tue. 8/12/08 11:33pm Sybil:

Braves postponed their game (till tomorrow) due to rain. Dang. After last week, I would have said that was impossible. Couldn't they find their water wings?
  Tue. 8/12/08 11:35pm Sybil:

Yes, that was some opening set. The bangs just keep getting bigger.
  Tue. 8/12/08 11:35pm Emily:

Welcome back!
  Tue. 8/12/08 11:35pm efd:

thanks, Matt Sybil and ~L!
  Tue. 8/12/08 11:36pm Sybil:

Individuals YEAHHHHHHHHH!
  Tue. 8/12/08 11:41pm Joe:

Wondeful things like this make me fervently wish that I had lived through the 80's, rather than been born in the goddamned middle.
  Tue. 8/12/08 11:42pm Sybil:

Joe, thanks for making me feel OLD. :)
  Tue. 8/12/08 11:45pm efd:

Joe, that is just part of the community service that WFMU provides!
  Tue. 8/12/08 11:46pm E.L.:

Sybil, I'm reminded of this everyday. I work in a wine shop and I'm carding people who were born in 1987 who can legally drink. It's messed up.

This set sounds great!
  Tue. 8/12/08 11:47pm Sybil:

Listening to a love Individuals set and watching Manny at bat... what could be finer?
  Tue. 8/12/08 11:48pm efd:

E.L., I agree! All I did was stand there... all props go to Gil Shuster for working his audio magic, and to the band of course for their magical playing.
  Tue. 8/12/08 11:48pm Sybil:

People who were born in 1987 can legally drink? No. You're making that up!
  Tue. 8/12/08 11:50pm Joe:

Oh, can we drink.
  Tue. 8/12/08 11:50pm Sybil:

Manny base hit! Ha! Don't throw at the helmet, NL pitchers!
  Tue. 8/12/08 11:50pm E.L.:

Well, I serve them, but I still don't believe it's legal.
  Tue. 8/12/08 11:51pm Sybil:

Joe, but legally?

Oh, who am I to talk. I remember when the drinking age was 18 most places.
  Tue. 8/12/08 11:52pm efd:

Manny is loving the NL! They're playing Philly again, right?
  Tue. 8/12/08 11:53pm Sybil:

Philly, yeppers.

And LA loves Manny. Wow.
  Tue. 8/12/08 11:54pm Joe:

My uncle was of the certain age in NY, where, just shy of his 18th birthday, he was forced to wait 3 more years to drink. But only in the city. Long Island bars mostly follow the "you must be this tall" policy. At least, on the North Shore.
  Tue. 8/12/08 11:54pm E.L.:

I think they should flip it so that you can drink at 16 and drive at 21. It would take the mystique out of it.
  Tue. 8/12/08 11:54pm efd:

as well they should!
  Tue. 8/12/08 11:55pm Sybil:

NOMAH!!!!

If only it were yesterday, when Derek Lowe was pitching. I'd be in cognitive dissonance.
  Tue. 8/12/08 11:55pm john:

Will provide an in-person report as to how much LA loves Manny in a couple weeks. Stay tuned!
  Tue. 8/12/08 11:56pm Sybil:

John, I am consumed with jealousy. Eagerly awaiting your report!
  Tue. 8/12/08 11:57pm efd:

Awesome John, you're going to a game out there?

If I weren't going to be out of town the weekend of the 23rd/24th i would be planning a Philly road trip to see the Dodgers.
  Tue. 8/12/08 11:57pm john:

I'll let you know if there are extra tickets! I'm looking forward to my annual jaunt to Dodger Stadium. Hope to catch a couple games at least.
  Tue. 8/12/08 11:59pm Sybil:

Hmm. What am I doing the 24th?
  Tue. 8/12/08 11:59pm Joe:

So... how 'bout that Pudge... yep... pretty psyched about that...

*crickets*
  Wed. 8/13/08 12:01am john:

Don't know when the tix are for, but I'll probably be there most of September. Or until I get bored and want to go home.
  Wed. 8/13/08 12:02am Sybil:

BTW (and it's SO hard following a relief pitcher, but Mosaic helps!) There is some evidence I was right about Yoyo only needing to pitch more regularly. In his last ten games he's got an ERA of 1.86, and he's been pitching on average every other day or so for the Braves.

Small samples and all, but I feel vindicated.
  Wed. 8/13/08 12:03am efd:

Joe, the Yankees won tonight right? I know they were ahead just before 11.
Nady's working out OK for them, at least....
  Wed. 8/13/08 12:04am john:

Yanks-Twinks 6-6 in the 11th. Damon on 2nd with 2 out.
  Wed. 8/13/08 12:04am Sybil:

NYY-Twins still tied 6-6 in the 11th, I believe.
  Wed. 8/13/08 12:04am efd:

wow, no shit!
  Wed. 8/13/08 12:05am efd:

Sybil, good to hear that update on Yo-Yo.
When is Byrd's first start for Boston? Friday?
  Wed. 8/13/08 12:06am Joe:

Oh yeah. I'm waiting for the choke.
  Wed. 8/13/08 12:06am john:

Sexson grounds out and we go to the bottom of the 11th
  Wed. 8/13/08 12:06am Sybil:

Freaky simultaneity strikes again!

Which reminds me.... efd, I had some brainstorms about baseball-realted songs. I'll email you, if I remember.
  Wed. 8/13/08 12:07am Sybil:

Uh, that would be "baseball-related".
  Wed. 8/13/08 12:08am Sybil:

I love the guitar in this one.
  Wed. 8/13/08 12:09am Joe:

This band is so good I feel like they're fixing all my problems.
  Wed. 8/13/08 12:10am E.L.:

I love that high hat action.
  Wed. 8/13/08 12:12am efd:

it's too bad one of them lives in LA, that kind of puts a damper on future reunion shows locally. But yeah, i have to agree, this set is amazing.
  Wed. 8/13/08 12:13am efd:

oh, and Sybil, yes, brainstorm away!
  Wed. 8/13/08 12:15am john:

And we go to the 12th. And yeah, the set is super cool!
  Wed. 8/13/08 12:17am Sybil:

WTF long, torturous games today? and Braves rainout? Is the sky falling? Is it because of the Perseids?
  Wed. 8/13/08 12:19am Joe:

I blame all my teams' misfortune on astrological events.
  Wed. 8/13/08 12:21am john:

Well, Yanks are rallying in the 12th, so the stars may have re-aligned for you
  Wed. 8/13/08 12:21am Joe:

Wooo! Dover! Morris County, represent!

Was probably the Baker Theater!

Between that and my town on a tattoo on the front page of the Star Ledger, I'm having a big day.
  Wed. 8/13/08 12:27am Sybil:

Manny encore une fois.
  Wed. 8/13/08 12:28am Mr. Wut:

Whuuuuuut!
  Wed. 8/13/08 12:29am Sybil:

Wah!!! Don't hit the Manny!
  Wed. 8/13/08 12:31am Sybil:

Checking the Star-Ledger website now...

Manny amazingly sanguine for someone who has a target painted on him, or so it seems...
  Wed. 8/13/08 12:33am efd:

Joe, I saw that photo! Rockaway Twp, right?
(yes, I am a Star-Ledger home delivery subscriber)
  Wed. 8/13/08 12:37am larry:

FIELDS is one of my all-time top ten favorites!!! All hail THE INDIVIDUALS! Will they ever play out again> I wonder...

p.s. World Championships:YANKS 26 Boston 6
(just to put things back into the BIG picture)
  Wed. 8/13/08 12:38am Sybil:

It's going to be interesting if the NL pitchers decide that pitching AT Manny is a good strategy. I'm not all that committed to nonviolence, is what I'm saying.
  Wed. 8/13/08 12:39am Joe:

Yup. Giancarlo Brazzeze, was in my middle school homeroom. Decent kid, big italian bully type, never bothered me though. Smoked pot with him once in high school, I knew he enlisted straight after graduation but I guess he's reserve now, since that was what the article was about. I've always thought those Jersey tats were kinda stupid, but with the little hometown star, his kinda plucked at my heartstrings. I wish him luck in Anbar, hope he comes back okay. We've already had two guys from my high school get maimed over there. General Odiernio is from Rockaway too.
  Wed. 8/13/08 12:39am Sybil:

Oh, Joe. You'll get used to the Yankees being just another team. It only hurts at first.
  Wed. 8/13/08 12:41am Joe:

the Yankee's being just another team = one aspect of 80'sness that I'm glad I missed out on.
  Wed. 8/13/08 12:42am Sybil:

Can I just say? This is my favorite baseball thread. I live all week for this. Because it has music too!
  Wed. 8/13/08 12:44am Joe:

I'm waiting for Evan to cave and just do a baseball call-in night. Maybe during playoffs.
  Wed. 8/13/08 12:44am Sybil:

Ah, Joe, yeah, forgot that historical aspect.

Right now I'll mention that I've always liked Joe Torre. Take that as you will.
  Wed. 8/13/08 12:50am Sybil:

We'll get an all-baseball show, during the postseason, and YoYo will grant an interview (the Braves, sadly, having failed to make the playoffs) and his BFF Manny Ramirez will call in and...

Be still my heart!
  Wed. 8/13/08 12:53am Sybil:

No no no you didn't play moscosos pateticos!

Too much.
  Wed. 8/13/08 12:55am efd:

ok, this song was kind of a mistake
  Wed. 8/13/08 12:57am Sybil:

But not this one!
  Wed. 8/13/08 12:58am efd:

Larry, let's make a bet on what will happen first: another Individuals show, or another Yankee world championship. :)
Yeah, I def want to do a baseball call-in show one of these days... I think I'd need to enlist some of WFMU's other baseball fans to help out, though.
  Wed. 8/13/08 1:03am Sybil:

Seriously, the J-guys (Joe and John) are among the best anywhere in terms of baseball fans! And me. of course. No one exceeds my fandom or statistical prowess. (Yeah, right.)

But... did folks catch Todd-O-Phonic Todd's trade talk? Spectactular.
  Wed. 8/13/08 1:09am Joe:

I am but a step above the casual fan. I only have one sabermetrics book, and I don't even understand it.

Wow, Ev, that sounded odd coming out of your mouth. Not to assault your metal cred.
  Wed. 8/13/08 1:10am Sybil:

I. um,

Motorhead?
  Wed. 8/13/08 1:12am Joe:

Trick question! Lemmy IS god!

What a douche Brendan Fraiser is.
  Wed. 8/13/08 1:13am Jessica:

Motorhead.

Are there going to be images to go w/the Individuals set?
  Wed. 8/13/08 1:15am Jessica:

Wow, that SoB was almost too much fun.
  Wed. 8/13/08 1:16am efd:

no images, unfortunately. Glenn brought one of those little quasi-disposable video cameras (FLip? Flex? It's his kid's), but the battery was dead.
Sybil, when was Todd's trade talk? I missed it!
  Wed. 8/13/08 1:16am Heck, you think we:

<blockquote.I only have one sabermetrics book, and I don't even understand it.,/blockquote.
  Wed. 8/13/08 1:19am efd:

sorry Sybil, no HTML of any kind works here!
  Wed. 8/13/08 1:21am Joe:

WYSIWYG, my ass.


... little programming humor, for ya.
  Wed. 8/13/08 1:36am Joe:

J'accuse! Payola! They're plying you with free subs!
  Wed. 8/13/08 1:37am efd:

ha, I can't be bought with a few $3.99 hoagies, delicious though they may be.
  Wed. 8/13/08 1:39am Joe:

QuickChek, my friend.

Also, this might be the first record I've heard you play that I actually own. Came in a crate of free vinyl I got off craigslist. Gotta start somewhere.
  Wed. 8/13/08 1:41am efd:

dude, I stop at QuikCheck every week on my way here. Seriously.
There's no Wawas in my part of Jerz anyway.
  Wed. 8/13/08 1:50am efd:

edit: QuickChek
  Wed. 8/13/08 1:54am Joe:

My own proper spelling was a shot in the dark. Quickchek vs. Wawa is most definitely the true demarcation of North vs. South Jersey.

It boggles my mind that I share geographic space with a large population of Eagles, Flyers, and worst of all, Phillies fans.
  Wed. 8/13/08 3:29pm donn:

Do we have to wait another 25 years for more shows by The Individuals?
