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.

Wednesdays 9pm - Midnight (EDT) | On WFMU | 91.1, 90.1, 91.9 FM & wfmu.org

Options July 7, 2010: APACHE live set!
The Bay-area band Apache return to WFMU en route from a six-week European tour to a spot on the Burger Records Caravan Of Stars tour. Their raucous '70s glam-punk sound will treat you right if you're a fan of Starz, The Hollywood Stars, The Hollywood Brats, or even bands without "star" or "hollywood" in their name. Their new album Radical Sabbatical was just released on Burger. They're currently on tour - check their myspace page for dates.

hiya efd--how was your july 4th weekend?? tell me all about it,,
  Wed. 7/7/10 9:08pm seang:

yeah man, the 70's---I'm an archive from 1972, left school in 1992
  Wed. 7/7/10 9:09pm cheri:

this disco diva lives for the 70s!!
  Wed. 7/7/10 9:26pm bigsigsputnik:

Good hearing your voice again!
  Wed. 7/7/10 9:32pm efd:

hey there! Glad your dog finally allowed you to tune in!

And greetings seang and cheri.
  Wed. 7/7/10 9:34pm Joshua K:

This playlist is all kinds of crazy colors tonight.
  Wed. 7/7/10 9:36pm cheri:

so evan--tell us all about your holiday weekend,,
  Wed. 7/7/10 9:38pm efd:

not that much to tell, really - saw fireworks in my town, recorded this set with Apache, had a cookout, tried to stay cool. That's pretty much it.

Joshua - these are the new summer colors!
  Wed. 7/7/10 9:38pm cheri:

great live set so far,,,
  Wed. 7/7/10 9:45pm efd:

Glad you're enjoying it!
  Wed. 7/7/10 9:59pm Danne D:

Hi Funk Fans!
I'm sad b/c I left my earphones at home :( (at the Starbucks) so it looks like an archive week for me. Though the first 45 minutes were all kinds of awesome!
  Wed. 7/7/10 10:01pm efd:

You blew it, Danne D! Clearly your strengths lie more in fantasy baseball team managing than in earphone-remembering.
  Wed. 7/7/10 10:02pm Danne D:

:(
though your leg-breakers (and shoulder tearers) have been slowly depleting my team!
I still have to listen to last week's archive - EFD on my B-day and I was out of town!

(well okay I was in Vega$ but still...)
  Wed. 7/7/10 10:06pm efd:

hey, Vegas is out of town. Happy belated birthday!
  Wed. 7/7/10 10:07pm Joe:

just bought this single. So great. Sooooo great.
  Wed. 7/7/10 10:10pm Danne D:

Thx EFD :)
Your 6/30 show will be like the birthday present I waited a little while to open :)
  Wed. 7/7/10 10:11pm Joe:

and that was a great segue
  Wed. 7/7/10 10:12pm efd:

thanks Joe, and hello! How was the Upper Crust last week?

Danne, that present is literally the least I could offer you.
  Wed. 7/7/10 10:16pm cheri:

evan,,thank you for that live set,,i enjoyed it,,well i'm outa here,,,have a great week,,see ya
  Wed. 7/7/10 10:18pm efd:

you're welcome! have a good night!
  Wed. 7/7/10 10:22pm Andy:

Greetings from Toronto EFD! Great show - Loved the opening set. How about calling the giveaway the Funky Ticket Oasis ;)
  Wed. 7/7/10 10:24pm Joe:

It was spectacular. The Anabolics were great as usual and the nautical environment provided ample sustenance for the lordships usual witty repartee. Unfortunately the boat's schedule only allowed for two encores. Should be pictures up eventually.
  Wed. 7/7/10 10:27pm john:

Hey Evan! Damn, going to miss Diamondsnake by, well, two weeks. But it does appear to be that time of year again...pulling out the Manny wig and hitting the road!
  Wed. 7/7/10 10:29pm E.L.:

Downloaded! Wish I lived in L.A. I loved that set. Thanks EFD/FMA.
  Wed. 7/7/10 10:32pm randy in NC:

efd, great hearing you live at a good time for us working stiffs. It's been mentioned before, but I like this watermelon color scheme...
  Wed. 7/7/10 10:33pm Danne D:

I agree about the color scheme - but some 70s funky fonts are now in order ;)

Btw, you'd totally love the Fremont Street experience as they are doing a 70s theme all summer :D
  Wed. 7/7/10 10:34pm Danne D:

Jake Peavy, EFD's hit squad's latest victim :(
  Wed. 7/7/10 10:36pm efd:

wait, how do I have anything to do with Jake Peavy?!
  Wed. 7/7/10 10:37pm Joe:

You know what you did.
  Wed. 7/7/10 10:38pm Danne D:

exactly, Joe. EFD's thugs roughed him up and tore his shoulder up.

I'm gonna have to put my players into witness protection soon.
  Wed. 7/7/10 10:39pm efd:

Andy, that's not a bad idea! Everything back to normal in T.O. now?

John, too bad you're missing them!

Hey Randy, glad the new time AND new colors are working out for you!

and way to go, E.L.!
  Wed. 7/7/10 10:45pm Andy:

EFD - just very hot here, but back to normal after a crazy week of minor but little scary incidents: earthquake/G20 riot/flooding/tornado. All is good listening to EFD show
  Wed. 7/7/10 10:47pm Danne D:

How was the riot? Somehow I visualize Canadians as being polite rioters.
  Wed. 7/7/10 10:50pm Andy:

Couple of police cars torched, looting. But we say please and thank you when we do! Thankfully no one hurt.
  Wed. 7/7/10 10:54pm john:

Kudos to the Pernices for the only mention of Ford Madox Ford (no relation) in pop music.. Scans better than "Joseph Conrad" anyway.
  Wed. 7/7/10 11:06pm Joe:

Evan I will give you 50 dollars if you do a whole show in your Le Poisson Rouge accent.

Well maybe not 50 dollars but some... dollars.
  Wed. 7/7/10 11:09pm john:

Joe, I'll make up the difference. But it's got to be the entire show, and if anything's actually French, it needs to be in an entirely different accent. Your choice.
  Wed. 7/7/10 11:15pm cheri:

evan could you please play some candi staton on next week's show,,thank you efd
  Wed. 7/7/10 11:23pm Danne D:

Night Evan, Night Funk Fans :)
  Wed. 7/7/10 11:25pm efd:

Good night, Danne. At least when *you* say good night I know you really mean it.
  Wed. 7/7/10 11:25pm efd:

also, John and Joe, I think it would take somewhere north of $50 for that french accent thing to happen.
  Wed. 7/7/10 11:30pm minnesota jeff:

Woop woop! Minnesota's own, LOOKBOOK! They did some wild Replacements cover at the anniversary "Let it Be" show last year.
  Wed. 7/7/10 11:31pm john:

I'll take it as far as $53.50, but after that we're going to need to pass the hat. Perhaps a benefit show? Maybe Diamondsnake will play it.
  Wed. 7/7/10 11:38pm efd:

Minnesota's own? Huh, I was thinking they were more Ohio-based. Although with Soft Tags being from Portland it seems like they're kind of from all over. Good band in any case!
  Wed. 7/7/10 11:41pm Joe:

Dear Evan -

Stop making me question my opinions on Kiss

sincerely,

Commenteer Joe.
  Wed. 7/7/10 11:42pm minnesota jeff:

Well, I guess I don't know the entire pedigree of the band. But I assume they must at least live here. They play here all the time, on the cover of our local Alternative Newspaper recently, plus their myspace says "Minneapolis".
  Wed. 7/7/10 11:43pm Captain:

I refuse to believe Paul Stanley wrote this Kiss song -- it sounds just like an actual good song, not a novelty!
  Wed. 7/7/10 11:45pm Joe:

wow this Bare Wires is a bit of a departure. A bit of an -awesome- departure.
  Wed. 7/7/10 11:46pm minnesota jeff:

You guys must be a koo-koo crazy, that kiss song was classic kiss stinkatude. That Jameson Raid song was killer though.
  Wed. 7/7/10 11:47pm Swami:

Soorry so late. . . can I borrow your notes s later??
  Wed. 7/7/10 11:50pm minnesota jeff:

EFD - Looking more into things ... the Lookbook from Minneapolis has no one named Christian in it, nor do they have an album called "The Tanning Machine". I am not an affiando on the bands music, but they maybe a tad similar but not the same "Lookbook"
  Wed. 7/7/10 11:53pm minnesota jeff:

Ok yeah, there is a Portland Lookbook, and a MPLS Lookbook.
  Wed. 7/7/10 11:57pm efd:

aha! Thanks for the legwork, Jeff! We'll just have to agree to disagree re "Sure Know Something."
  Thu. 7/8/10 12:00am minnesota jeff:

Yeah, me and Kiss don't get along.
