Options The Evan "Funk" Davies Show: Playlist from January 11, 2012 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.

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

Listener comments!

  Wed. 1/11/12 9:04pm Holly in NC:

First??!!!!!
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:05pm Stevel:

Hey? Hey!
Darn you HiNC! Aren't you here earlier than usual?
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:07pm Holly in NC:

Hi Evan & Steve1!
Yep, I am quite early. Because I have left my employer of 8 years! Yay! (Also scary, scary, scary......)
Peter F. is speaking to me :-)
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:09pm justsheano:

hey, efd. I am listening to your show and have teevee on mute. Are you a better soundtrack for "Planet Earth: Desert Worlds" or "Mutant Bees?"
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:11pm efd:

Hi justsheano! I'm gonna have to say "Mutant Bees."

Hi Holly, nice to have you hear early, and congrats! I trust your judgment re leaving your job of 8 years.

Welcome Stevel, nice to see you again today.
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:11pm Stevel:

Ooohhhh, adventure in the marketplace! Best of luck to you and your change. I made a serious shift about 4 years ago, (Newspaper photog to non-profit g rant writer/fundraiser) Glad I did, but took some guts.
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:12pm Richard from Venezuela:

nice to catch the show live. Good evening Evan and all the listeners.
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:13pm Stevel:

Yes efd, grateful for the GTDS stream tip. That was a nice show at noon.
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:14pm john:

Hey Evan! After one Wednesday flat on my back with a gawdawful stomach bug and another attending to Becky's family duties in Pixburgh, it's great to be able to tune in again. I mean, REALLY great. But my gosh, Peter Frampton went through a phase where he wanted to be Van Halen, didn't he?
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:17pm efd:

Hi John, nice to have you back! I know it's probably not a popular choice, but I have a real soft spot for that Frampton song. You could say that *I'm* breaking all the rules!
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:17pm jt:

i heard this song, Pinball once before, i was five years old in the back seat of my uncles volvo p2000. But now that i think of it it reminds me a great deal of Beta Band
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:18pm Stevel:

efd: Fishing for another Frampton retweet?
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:19pm Holly in NC:

Mutant bees. Oh yes, I couldn't have planned a better setup. Just wait 'til tonight's episode of Holly's scary creatures...

Thank you efd & Steve1 for your kind words.

Pinball is such a great song!
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:19pm efd:

@Stevel It wouldn't hurt! :)
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:20pm efd:

@jt, you totally nailed it with that Beta Band reference! Spot on.
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:21pm Danne D:

Hi Funk Fans :)

EFD once again making me realize that I liked Charlie Dore very much in my youth without quite knowing who it was singing that song :)
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:23pm chris :: toronto:

It's time for the funk! Hi all.
Noticed Joe Belock hit some of that Hot Knives action this week. Have to think that efd had something to do with that.
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:23pm Thierry from France:

Not too late to wish everyone a HNY2012,
nor to recall a great 2011 EFD show: The Notekillers live set.
They had me glued to the speakers when it wired!
Amazing discovery, thanks!
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:23pm barkevious shabazz:

Brian Protheroe on early 70's prog radio in parents' red Torino. The first step is to admit you have a problem in the first place.
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:25pm Michael from the left coast:

Jake Holmes wouldn't sound out of place right about now
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:25pm Danne D:

Hi Holly :) Hi Stevel :) Hi sheano :) Hola Ricardo :) Hi john :) Hi jt :) Hi Chris and Thierry :) and barkevious (who obviously loves that Alabama player's name as much as I do), Hi Mflc :)

Good on EFD introducing Stevel to the magic that is Nazario Scenario )

Congrats on your new start, Holly! Maybe you can get a job keeping the stomach bugs away from john ;)
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:26pm efd:

@Chris, actually it's the other way around - Joe playing Hot Knives last week helped prompt me to play it on my show the next day!

Greetings Michael ftlc, barkevious s, Thierrry and Danne D
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:27pm Danne D:

ya'll know what time it is!
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:28pm miss cheri:

what's up evan & danne wonderful start evan,, how's the new year treating you??
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:28pm Randy in NC:

@Holly, you join me however in my case redundancy was not of my doing nor in my plans.
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:28pm Adam in Portland:

FUNK!
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:28pm Stevel:

It appears to be the proper hour for some sort of musical radio presentation.
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:29pm Adam in Portland:

Holy holllllllly!
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:30pm Michael from the left coast:

Lynn-Ette--
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:31pm chris :: toronto:

@efd oh I heard Belock playing after you but I'm clearly out of sync. Hi @Danne D
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:32pm George Remus:

Remus approves of this intoxicating concoction of homebrew.
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:36pm Holly in NC:

@Randy in NC -
I'm totally with ya! The timing was *not* my choice, but I was becoming a person I didn't like so I guess I appreciate the kick in the pants.
Hopefully my likable self doesn't end up in a cardboard box!

Sending all sorts of good vibes your way. If necessary, perhaps we can share a box ;-)

Hi Danne!
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:37pm Mark in VT:

peter framptom because of the vocoder interview today
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:38pm Julie:

wait, two floors? three or four different rooms? What kind of castle were you LIVING in, Davies??
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:38pm George Remus:

@Holly, some would consider this highly blasphemous to admit, but years ago I felt that same thing happening to me at Sub Pop Records, with similar results. I stand with you.
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:39pm Randy in NC:

@Holly, Thanks. In my case the company ran out of funding before what we were doing could be released to the market. Hopefully our respective redundancies will be short!
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:40pm Adam in Portland:

What an odd coincidence! All of that same info that Remus put forth applies to me. I stand with you as well, Holly. ;-)
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:44pm efd:

@Julie, a single-family house with a basement. Nothing fancy, I assure you!
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:45pm miss cheri:

great to to see again tonight julie...how are you feeling tonight? hiya evan
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:45pm Julie:

the word HOUSE makes me salivate, and it's not because I have a thing for Hugh Laurie
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:45pm efd:

Hi Adam in Portland, Randy, George R, cheri, and Mark in VT! Here's hoping all these similar employment situations ultimately work out for the best!
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:46pm efd:

(but that doesn't hurt)
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:47pm Danne D:

@julie - SURE you don't have a thing for Hugh Laurie...

Hiya cheri, Adma, Randy George R, and Mark (I think I got 'em all - oh wait HI JULIE)
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:47pm Holly in NC:

Wow! a lot of former & formerly unlikable Sub Pop employees here, who knew?
All I know is that I totally treasure my Mudhoney 7"s. And Screaming Trees' 'Time Speaks Her Golden Tongue'. If either of you had anything to do with those, thank you.
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:48pm Julie:

@Danne if he has a house..yes I'll be there for him
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:49pm Danne D:

I'm scared - I don't like that Stomach Flu is trending on yahoo
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:49pm Aharon:

Hello, all. Hello, EFD--loving the Heavy Timrd. And hello, Danne D, whose voice I believe I heard on another show recently. FMU: it makes all of us inadvertent stalkers (in addition to whatever advertencies we'd been working on).
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:50pm Danne D:

Julie starting her own House of Tomorrow fund? *

* - old school FMU reference there
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:50pm barkevious shabazz:

Devoto + mcgeoch. Eggcellent.
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:50pm Amanda:

I am listening, right now! WOW to Barry Adamson on Chris's show!
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:50pm Mark in VT:

sounds so portlandia. i have seen the same nut bag people in vermont,
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:51pm Danne D:

King Arahon! It is possible you heard my voice, sir, through a very very sad dying cell phone.

Princess Amanda :) glad to see you here as well
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:51pm buddy:

well I am glad you got your collection sorted out... i love this tune wow. brings back memories.
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:52pm Adam in Portland:

Wishing you all a wall-smashing 2012. Maybe even a Geddy Lee noodling 2112.
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:52pm barkevious shabazz:

Ok for the trainspotters Dave Formula.
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:53pm Adam in Portland:

Amander! Wonderful to meet you here at the crossroads.
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:54pm buddy:

dancing just around joy division i see...
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:55pm Stevel:

From Hey Hey, to Whoa ey oh! What a long strange trip, and yet, its not quite ten.
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:56pm Adam in Portland:

This Lost Tribe is fantastic! Misfits meets Soft Moon meets Godflesh meets Jaz Coleman?
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:56pm Dave B:

Thank you efd for using a serif'd font...
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:56pm Julie:

Princess Amanda??
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:56pm Amanda:

Same here, Adam! (At the crossroads, that is.)
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:57pm Danne D:

Well Aharon had to be addressed as King (since he won the Fantasy Baseball League) and so I stock to formal titles in that particular comment.

You are a Princess as well Princess Julie
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:57pm Danne D:

(Terre is the Queen)
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:58pm Holly in NC:

I have a Rush baseball sleeve concert tee (circa Signals, unfortunately) waiting in the attic for 2112. Don't think I haven't been investigating freezing myself!
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:58pm Adam in Portland:

@Julie, Amanda eats cucumber sandwiches without the obtrusive crusts.
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:58pm Danne D:

(that is a schtick that will not continue btw as it will even annoy me)
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:59pm Julie:

@Adam which means she eats with her hands!
  Wed. 1/11/12 9:59pm Aharon:

Deposed already!
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:00pm Dave B:

@Julie - pinky extended
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:00pm miss cheri:

i'm wondeing if julie's still upset with me from the comment i made the the other morning,
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:00pm Adam in Portland:

I plan to freeze Geddy Lee, but have not, as yet, been able to get close enough to realize my nefarious plan.
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:00pm Amanda:

Lies! I usually eat with my hands tied behind my back, ie in eating competitions.
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:00pm chris :: toronto:

Thank you efd for using a serif'd font...
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:01pm Aharon:

Hard first 'a' in glossolalia, or so I've heard (and heard and heard and heard). Probably incorrect.
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:01pm barkevious shabazz:

RE:Mutan Bees: Upon first hearing The Deadbeats "Kill the Hippies", I thought the were saying"Kill, Kill, killer bees." After discovering my error I enjoyed it so much more.
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:01pm Danne D:

didn't say you were deposed, just won't constantly use the title :)
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:02pm Adam in Portland:

@Amanda, ...and a coachman just out of frame.
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:03pm Julie:

I confess that I have personally SEEN Princess Amanda face first in food. Of course, not saying I wasn't also, but there you have it :D
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:03pm Holly in NC:

Oh, I really, really love the Twerps. They totally get the mid 80s Citadel vibe. Well, the Died Pretty, specifically. Mixed with a wee bit of NZ/Flying Nun/Clean. Love!
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:04pm Julie:

Oh and HI AMANDA!!
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:06pm Adam in Portland:

My resolution for 2012 is to live a life more like that of Barry Lyndon.
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:07pm Dave B:

Hey Julie - another concert aggregator / social network for shows (I only just heard of it, so YMMV)

http://www.songkick.com/
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:07pm john:

For the record, I'd give glossolalia a long a as in male, despite its origin from the Greek λαλέω (speak), with the a as in father. Just saying, Pedantry break complete. Carry on.
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:07pm Amanda:

Love this Cloud Nothings track. Hi Julie!

Adam, good job. Mine was just to drink more water.
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:08pm Holly in NC:

Did someone say Mutant Bees?
I thought so!

http://tinyurl.com/7wf52mh

Fast forward to the last minute for the true horror.
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:09pm Adam in Portland:

@Amanda, by that I mean to smash more light bulbs, tear more bodices and take my iron balls to my trunk?
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:10pm Julie:

@DaveB oh yes I've got it watching some bands for me now
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:10pm Adam in Portland:

More iron balls, more iron balls. Hahahahaha.
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:11pm Julie:

Wasn't that maggie thatcher's nickname? Iron Balls?
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:11pm Stevel:

Hornets suck.
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:11pm barkevious shabazz:

I like Brian the dog's version of "Never Gonna give you Up."
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:12pm Dave B:

@Holly - all I can think of is Peanuts singing "Mosura" to that clip

Mosuraaaa!
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:13pm miss cheri:

i'm sorry julie let there be no hard feelings..ok?
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:13pm Julie:

Rick Astley http://28.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lfwlaydm5Y1qzasa8o1_400.jpg
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:14pm Julie:

I've got hard feelings about everyone, they call me ol' iron heart
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:14pm Dave B:

In Japan the hand can cut wood!

But it can't do a thing to the giant hornet!

http://www.mnn.com/sites/default/files/user-993/hornet.jpg
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:14pm Julie:

I don't even know why Rick Astley was brought up but I like that gag
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:15pm Amanda:

I love Birds in my Tree also!
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:16pm Julie:

Birds in her tree and a hornet in her bonnet
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:17pm Holly in NC:

@Dave B -
Yes! Yes! Yes! (re Peanuts)
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:19pm barkevious shabazz:

It's a noose, not a gag.
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:21pm miss cheri:

julie,,you have a heart of gold!!
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:21pm Living Doll:

When does the lightbulb smashing start?
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:21pm Danne D:

Wow! Cherry Hill Park was in my neighborhood growing up.

I don't remember a Mary Hill though.
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:23pm Droll:

@efd What's wrong with the original of Cherry Hill?
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:23pm Michael from the left coast:

Ah, what a great record this is--oldies radio is doing its audience a disservice by not playing this
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:23pm Danne D:

see if I had made Julie's comment about feelings that woulda had a whole different vibe.
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:25pm efd:

@Droll, oh, nothing at all! I just always hear a heavy guitar version in my head when I listen to it.
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:25pm Holly in NC:

Re BJR cover: Greenhornes? Swinging Neckbreakers?
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:25pm efd:

@MIchael I actually heard that in a store a couple of weeks ago that was playing the Sirius/XM "'60s on 6" station.
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:25pm G:

Been busy working but listening.

Holly driving the board buggy so early??? Where will things have gotten to by the final quarter-hour???
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:26pm Danne D:

Cherry Hill Park wasn't particularly impressive btw - on a too long strip of land with not unrocky terrain/open field for a good chunk of it and then a single basketball court (hoops no nets), single funnel ball thingy and a picnic table. Oh and a couple swings and a springy duck and chicken and (I think) elephant.
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:27pm Adam in Portland:

@living doll, I'm in near total darkness *right now.* If I need more light, I'll burn some straw, or lending documentation.
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:27pm Danne D:

Whoa how awesome is that. Even the town calls Mosquito Jungle Mosquito Jungle! http://www.elmwoodparknj.us/recreation/parks.html
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:27pm miss cheri:

good night evan,,julie & danne cause i have to head out now i got to get up early see you all next week!!
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:28pm Dave B:

at first glance I read "single fennel ball thingy"

still, the serif'd font kicks comic sans' ass....
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:28pm G:

@Danne: Apparently you had a blog entry ready in your head about CHP, years before there were blogs.
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:28pm Danne D:

(they have since ruined the charm of Cherry Hill Park by actually get state money and making it, like, a legitimate park btw)
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:28pm dave:

holy crap, nmew palomar! and of course it's GREAT.
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:28pm Danne D:

LOL G and I don't even have a blog now - go figure
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:29pm Danne D:

g'night cheri have a good rest
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:31pm Danne D:

Btw, Mosquito Jungle is so called because, well, on the opposite corner of the park from the softball field (a long way away - like well beyong where the normal softball fence would be) is a large drain pipe that drains off runoff rainwater from nearby Route 46, making that section more swampish at times and good for mosquitoes to get busy in)
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:32pm Julie:

Get up early to see us?
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:32pm Holly in NC:

@G -
Sorry, have to learn to pace myself!
Which is not to say that I don't have something extra in my back pocket...
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:33pm Aharon:

Palomar=no label??? What the????
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:35pm Aharon:

@John Thanks for backing me up before!
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:37pm john:

Aharon, always a pleasure! Knew those semesters of ancientish Greek would come in handy one day, though I have to admit I didn't think this would quite be how.
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:38pm Dave B:

speaking of which, isnt it Mallomar season right about now?
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:40pm Aharon:

One never does, John, one never does.

Don't ask me... ask Pablo Escobar
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:45pm Droll:

That's not a Carlos Alomar video -- that's a video of "a most promising young Kentuckian, Adrian Belew"
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:46pm Droll:

  Wed. 1/11/12 10:57pm PB:

This sounds like something Dan Bodah might play on his program. His program (Airborne Event) is great.
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:57pm barkevious shabazz:

@ Danne d It all went downhill when they started calling me Key-Key.
  Wed. 1/11/12 10:57pm Michael from the left coast:

  Wed. 1/11/12 11:01pm pudgie:

ohyea!
  Wed. 1/11/12 11:07pm mr h:

Really a great show tonight. Super impressed. Haven't tuned in in awhile out here in san francisco, and its seems that i made an error in forsaking the mighty power of EFD.
  Wed. 1/11/12 11:07pm Aharon:

I've been listening for years and I still don't understand the call-in/win rules
  Wed. 1/11/12 11:10pm Julie:

EFD FTW
  Wed. 1/11/12 11:14pm Danne D:

Glad you've come back to the flock, Mr H

@Aharon - basically know what you want tickets to when you call - if you've won in the last 30 days you are not eligible - if somebody else snakes the tickets you wanted before EFD reaches your call you're SOL
  Wed. 1/11/12 11:14pm Holly in NC:

This is groovy, but later tonight I am going to put on 'Meshkalina' at a very high volume & dance around & freak out Jim & the cats
  Wed. 1/11/12 11:14pm Thierry from France:

You've been saving the Ball Cutter testicle-chomping fish picture to zing us with since 28 December??? A patient female!

But how will you top yourself next week??? (This is also Lady Gaga's present problem.)
  Wed. 1/11/12 11:23pm Holly in NC:

This Thee Oh Sees is the only lp to make EVERYBODY'S top whatever list of 2011. And deservedly so.
  Wed. 1/11/12 11:25pm G:

the fish pic goes with carrion crawler, actually.

Note to self - Never go fishing with Holly
  Wed. 1/11/12 11:28pm G:

You wouldn't prefer "The Cthulhu of Creepycrawlies?"
  Wed. 1/11/12 11:29pm thatsright:

evan , have not heard the clash out of you in a while . we sometimes forget the beauty.
  Wed. 1/11/12 11:31pm Danne D:

Devils win in OT!
  Wed. 1/11/12 11:32pm Danne D:

@Barkevious - is this song about you? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1_kXMEeCf74
  Wed. 1/11/12 11:35pm Danne D:

wow - just realized that's a rare thing - a song that's nowhere to be found in the WFMU archive lists
  Wed. 1/11/12 11:35pm Holly in NC:

@Danne -
Hey now! Do you know I actually have a certificate from the state of NC for reeling in a HONKING big king mackerel?

Though I don't deal with any live bait other than night crawlers. Crickets, bloodworms, ugh - I turn all girly & make someone else do the honors.
  Wed. 1/11/12 11:36pm conrad:

  Wed. 1/11/12 11:50pm Stevel:

Alas poor speakers, we knew ye well.
  Wed. 1/11/12 11:50pm Holly in NC:

See, Honking is really a sonic whistle...
  Wed. 1/11/12 11:53pm Danne D:

I believe it Holly - I just want to stay away from that fish with teeth!
