Options The Evan "Funk" Davies Show: Playlist from September 30, 2008 Options

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.

  Tue. 9/30/08 11:15pm john:

Ahhh, back on the east coast finally, glad to see everything is just as it was when I left!
  Tue. 9/30/08 11:17pm efd:

hi/bye Miss B!
Welcome back east, John!
  Tue. 9/30/08 11:28pm Naomi:

What a thing to do to Mucca Pazza! Wait until I tell them they were a bed for the financial crisis!!
  Tue. 9/30/08 11:29pm efd:

oh snap!
  Tue. 9/30/08 11:35pm billy:

don't mean to kill the vibe......but what a bummer about the Mets....can't even think of a tune to sum up this situation!!.
  Tue. 9/30/08 11:36pm john:

I don't know of a song called "we totally suck ass" so you're probably right.
  Tue. 9/30/08 11:37pm billy:

i think you meant to say Brad Whitford .....Tyler was always in Aerosmith
  Tue. 9/30/08 11:39pm billy:

no problem
  Tue. 9/30/08 11:39pm wikipedia:

Continuing to play as a studio musician, Crespo has also performed at some of Las Vegas' biggest casinos, whilst also engineering a rock amplifier simulator ("Rock Amp Legends by Jimmy Crespo") for Nomad Factory. Crespo plays with the band Phoenix on the Las Vegas entertainment circuit.
  Tue. 9/30/08 11:41pm john:

I like that Crespo is described as a stolid capstan. Wonder if he meant to call himself an unemotional revolving cylinder.
  Tue. 9/30/08 11:43pm RV:

I am surprised the wikipedia does not contain any information on his pull-up skills.
  Tue. 9/30/08 11:45pm Laurie:

This "Robot Kid" song -- do I hear a "Warm Leatherette" sample?
  Tue. 9/30/08 11:46pm randy in NC:

Yay Sparks!
  Tue. 9/30/08 11:46pm efd:

i'm not sure if it's an actual sample, but there's definitely some kind of reference in there.
John, totally agree re "stolid capstan!"
  Tue. 9/30/08 11:51pm Marcelo from Arghhentina:

yes, its time now, we need a Sparks boxset, than x for the music Evan
  Tue. 9/30/08 11:54pm efd:

Hi Marcelo, thanks for checking in! Cool to know you're listening in Argentina!
I agree, a Sparks box set is definitely in order. That, and a Tommy Roe box set.
  Tue. 9/30/08 11:59pm Laurie:

KITTY!!!!!!!!!!! Awwww. Thank you for adopting a grown up cat =^._.^=
  Wed. 10/1/08 12:00am C:

You gotta let that cat out of the air vent
  Wed. 10/1/08 12:01am john:

l'hygiene sonore makes a goodish pun in english-- aural hygiene. I went to the dentist today, the music wasn't that good. My cat is sleeping under the covers. I should remember that when I go to bed.
  Wed. 10/1/08 12:12am Amanda:

Such a nice cat! The annoyed expression is because you got the litterbox in the photo, I'm sure.

TF are awesome. I am not sure yet what I'm doing Friday, but I might not be able to resist that show.
  Wed. 10/1/08 12:12am D in DC:

FYI: A big supercollider was supposed to be built in Waxahachie, Texas but the funding was cut in the early 90s.
  Wed. 10/1/08 12:15am efd:

Aha, D, thanks for that info -- that must be the one they're talking about in that song - I know I heard Texas mentioned somewhere in there.
Laurie, the cat is about 8 months old, so not quite full-grown yet.
Amanda, I think the annoyed expression was also because me and one of the workers at the shelter were making him look up while he was trying to eat!
  Wed. 10/1/08 12:19am Naomi:

TOMORROW IS HAZEL RIGBY'S BIRTHDAY!
  Wed. 10/1/08 12:21am efd:

wow! my timing is impeccable!
  Wed. 10/1/08 12:21am efd:

i'm afraid to ask how old she's going to be... i feel old enough as it is since I just had a birthday myself!
  Wed. 10/1/08 12:24am Naomi:

She'll be 20. Get your teeth out of the polident and chew on that.
  Wed. 10/1/08 12:32am billy:

phillies vs brewers....chicago vs la
  Wed. 10/1/08 12:33am efd:

thanks billy!
you are the official efd fact checker for this evening!
  Wed. 10/1/08 12:33am billy:

cubs vs dodgers that is
  Wed. 10/1/08 12:35am billy:

yes somehow i retain information better during the hours of 11-2, tuesday nights
  Wed. 10/1/08 12:36am efd:

i wish that were true for me!
  Wed. 10/1/08 12:39am efd:

anyone want to make some world series predictions?
  Wed. 10/1/08 12:42am randy in NC:

Well the Sox have to get through the Angels. And they haven't done well against them this year. But it seems like they always have to go through them, doesn't it?
  Wed. 10/1/08 12:45am efd:

that's true, Randy. And if Beckett's not at full strength then it's going to be even tougher for Boston to win that series.
  Wed. 10/1/08 12:45am Laurie:

I thought I heard Roxy's voice! She's such a sweetheart.
  Wed. 10/1/08 12:57am randy in NC:

I'd really like to see the Dodgers do it. Not because of the Manny thing, but because it would be great to rub Torre into the NY sportswriters faces. They have this attitude that of course a NY team is going to win the World Series (Super Bowl, etc.). And when they don't it's like the world has ended.
  Wed. 10/1/08 12:58am billy:

i would LOVE to see Dodgers vs Red Sox......Torre and Manny vs Red Sox?!! Bizarre and great
  Wed. 10/1/08 12:59am MONTREAL:

brew crew
  Wed. 10/1/08 1:00am craig:

I can see the dodgers coming out of the National League but I can't choose between Tampa Bay or the Angels.
  Wed. 10/1/08 1:08am efd:

if the Red Sox get knocked out I'll be rooting for Tampa Bay... I'd love to see LA in the series as well, but I feel like the Cubs have a pretty good shot at the NL title.
disclaimer: I don't really follow the NL that closely!
  Wed. 10/1/08 1:13am john:

Dont' discount the Rays in the first Series; they're deadly at home. I think they take out the White Sox. Phils beat a superior Brew Crew, Cubs over Dodgers despite how much fun it'd be to see Yankee fans watch Joe Torre in the Series....more to follow...
  Wed. 10/1/08 1:14am billy:

yeah cubs are the favorite.......but they are cursed
  Wed. 10/1/08 1:15am efd:

I don't believe in curses! :)

And yeah, John, my money's on Tampa Bay to beat the ChiSox.
Well, it would be if I were actually placing money somewhere.
  Wed. 10/1/08 1:18am billy:

really.....i just hope to see some good, close games....no blowouts and no sweeps!!!
  Wed. 10/1/08 1:18am john:

Yeah, but a Cubs win is kind of a dogs and cats living together scneraio...
  Wed. 10/1/08 1:19am billy:

don't forget goats!!
  Wed. 10/1/08 1:22am efd:

it would be somewhat fitting if the Cubs finally make it into the Series and lose to a team that finished in last place last year.
  Wed. 10/1/08 1:36am ?:

oh in spanish, el Lobo - The Wolf, what a sounds, direct from the basements!!! thanx
  Wed. 10/1/08 9:16am jack m.:

hey efd, thanks for the shoutout..."do animals..." is IMHO one of the great post post-punk LPs, ripe for reissue. and great show, as always.
  Fri. 10/3/08 3:39pm Mary:

Yay! The Last! Thanks for playing them.
