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.

Hello EFD and all the nice people.
  Wed. 4/4/12 9:05pm Danne D:

no hitter for Lohse just got broken up

Hi Funk Fans :) Hi EFD :)

Hi Baseball League Members :)
  Wed. 4/4/12 9:06pm G:

Imaginsry Radio played The Nice late night this past weekend...
  Wed. 4/4/12 9:06pm Kat:

Hi EFD, Destroit, Danne D, G, and everybody. Wondering if the rest of the Barry Adamson album kicks as much ass as this song does?
  Wed. 4/4/12 9:07pm G:

ugh, what a lohser!
Avatar Wed. 4/4/12 9:08pm efd:

greetings Destroit, G, and Danne D!

And Kat! This is one of the better tracks but the album overall is very good - I'd recommend it.
Avatar Wed. 4/4/12 9:09pm efd:

And speaking of Imaginary Radio, Chris had a great live set and interview with Barry Adamson back in December or January - check the archives!
  Wed. 4/4/12 9:10pm G:

@kat: It was released Valentine's Day. Here's an extract from the Pitchform review, FWIW: "Swinging through dark pop, atmospheric instrumentals, and demented circus music ... unique with great personality."
  Wed. 4/4/12 9:10pm PB:

Street Fighting Man is still my favorite Stones track of all time. They were great, way back then.
  Wed. 4/4/12 9:11pm Joe D.:

Yes he did! I came here to say that. Well, not really.
  Wed. 4/4/12 9:11pm SteveL:

It is quiet in the Midwest. For now, no street fighting.
  Wed. 4/4/12 9:12pm Kat:

Thanx efd and G! Sounds good.
  Wed. 4/4/12 9:13pm Destroit:

Hello Kat :) franzen just busted up backes's lip. Ice fighting.
  Wed. 4/4/12 9:16pm PB:

Did Nicky Hopkins play keyboards on all of the studio albums from the Stones best period (Beggars Banquet through Exile)? G probably knows. G?
  Wed. 4/4/12 9:17pm G:

From wikipedia, Nick Hopkins article: "Hopkins played with the Rolling Stones on their studio albums from Between the Buttons in 1967 through Emotional Rescue in 1980 and Tattoo You in 1981, including the prominent piano parts in "She's a Rainbow" (1967), "Sympathy for the Devil" (1968), "Loving Cup" (1972) and "Waiting on a Friend" (1981). During this period, Hopkins tended to be employed on the Stones' slower, ballad-type songs, with longtime Stones keyboardist Ian Stewart playing on traditional rock numbers and Billy Preston used on soul and funk-influenced tunes."
  Wed. 4/4/12 9:18pm PB:

I knew G wouldn't disappoint. Thanks G.
  Wed. 4/4/12 9:20pm G:

I'm doing my own booky research, so I always have one or two wikipedia tabs open for when I need quick answers to my own research questions. Unless I know something stone cold dead cert, I check it online...
  Wed. 4/4/12 9:21pm PB:

I always oved Nicky Hopkins's piano playing. He was also great on the Airplane's Volunteers album and on countless other albums from the era. Died young (51 I think). Huge loss.
  Wed. 4/4/12 9:22pm Danne D:

Yay Black Hollies :)
  Wed. 4/4/12 9:22pm Joe D.:

WHEN IS THE NEXT BLACK HOLLIES RECORD COMING OUT?!

I am gonna march down to the chocolate factory and get some goddamn ANSWERS
  Wed. 4/4/12 9:23pm Danne D:

Yahoo's new live scoring is prettier but larger :(
  Wed. 4/4/12 9:23pm Skrikie:

Marked new. Is this particular 7" new?
  Wed. 4/4/12 9:24pm G:

Nicky was a session kb'ist precisely because he was in poor health from his youth and could not commit to tour.
  Wed. 4/4/12 9:24pm Michael from the Left Coast:

Nicky Hopkins was mighty fine on some Kinks sides as well
  Wed. 4/4/12 9:25pm Skrikie:

Scratch that. (not literally)
  Wed. 4/4/12 9:25pm Danne D:

and that's how it goes, yeah! and that's how it goes...
  Wed. 4/4/12 9:27pm Ken From Hyde Park:

If you had a commercial radio station going here, you'd have a good commercial for your show right there.
  Wed. 4/4/12 9:28pm Danne D:

I've seen Bruce Springsteen TWICE as many times as you have, Evan!
  Wed. 4/4/12 9:29pm PB:

Couldn't agree more. You're not missing much efd, Springsteen is terrible.
  Wed. 4/4/12 9:31pm m:

hi evan
the black hollies rock
  Wed. 4/4/12 9:32pm G:

Did he do a rap about how he lets someone do a little farm work on his mcmansion estate so he "qualifies" to pay the incredibly low farm rate of annual property tax? I'd pay to hear *that* rap.
  Wed. 4/4/12 9:35pm Danne D:

Marlins trying a desperate 8th-inning rally

Btw, is it possible to love a song within like 3 seconds? If so that's just occurred here :)
  Wed. 4/4/12 9:36pm PB:

Springsteen, Bono and others of their ilk are a bunch of sanctimonious phonies.
  Wed. 4/4/12 9:36pm Skirkie:

1st base umpire kick started that rally.
  Wed. 4/4/12 9:39pm SteveL:

I'm sorry I didn't see Springsteen circa 75-82. Generous and energetic performer.

First chord of jacuzzi boys sure sounded like a Born to Run chord, or is it just me?
  Wed. 4/4/12 9:40pm Richard from Venezuela:

Good evening Evan and all the listeners.
  Wed. 4/4/12 9:44pm PB:

Speaking of recycled intros, it is amazing how many times the intro to the Ronettes Be My Baby has been repackaged and recycled. A tribute to Phil Spector, I guess.
  Wed. 4/4/12 9:50pm Danne D:

como estas Ricardo! Always good to see you :) Happy First Day of Baseball season #2
  Wed. 4/4/12 9:50pm Joe D.:

I really want to order the Far Out Fangtooth LP from Siltbreeze but they won't put the new Mount Carmel record up even though its been out forever and I want to get them both to save on shipping. #firstworldproblems
  Wed. 4/4/12 9:51pm Richard from Venezuela:

Todo bien Danne. Ozzie start badly.
  Wed. 4/4/12 9:51pm Danne D:

True that, but it'll make for better twitter reading at least :)
  Wed. 4/4/12 9:52pm Danne D:

The Cardinals have entrusted their closer role to a guy with this picture...http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/players/8369

  Wed. 4/4/12 9:59pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Was thinking that Malts shredded but this Sonic Avenues is the poop! Who day?
  Wed. 4/4/12 10:00pm Danne D:

WFMU has made me very good at picking up cover songs very fast.
  Wed. 4/4/12 10:00pm tinaun:

best vocals ever.
  Wed. 4/4/12 10:01pm SteveL:

I missed Peelander Z. They were actually in Fort Wayne. My priorities stink.
  Wed. 4/4/12 10:02pm Ignore Function:

I don't remember Peelander Z sounding like this. They are really fun live.
  Wed. 4/4/12 10:04pm JMD:

Robin...oh no, don't tell me!
  Wed. 4/4/12 10:04pm Holly in NC:

"your daughter is one...." loved this movie!
Avatar Wed. 4/4/12 10:06pm efd:

Barkevious, sadly I don't have any additional info at hand on Sonic Avenues, but that album is great!

Hi everyone and thanks for listening! Tyring to keep up!
  Wed. 4/4/12 10:07pm JMD:

Just checked. He's doing better and the cancer is in remission.
  Wed. 4/4/12 10:07pm Barkevious Shabazz:

This show friggin kills it. Luv bbq.
  Wed. 4/4/12 10:09pm Barkevious Shabazz:

How is Mrs. Horn?
  Wed. 4/4/12 10:11pm G:

Still in a coma, I'd reckon. (This hearkens back to a Pseu show discussion a couple weeks or so back.)
  Wed. 4/4/12 10:16pm Joe D.:

Did you hear about the Band in Heaven? You know they got a hell of a... wait.
  Wed. 4/4/12 10:16pm SteveL:

Hold on now. Wasn't there a "The Band_________" ban recently?
Avatar Wed. 4/4/12 10:17pm efd:

apologies to JMD and anyone else who was alarmed to hear Robin Gibb... I assure you, that would not be the first song I'd play if he had passed on.
Avatar Wed. 4/4/12 10:18pm efd:

Steve, that ban applied strictly to ___ the ____ bands (except for pre-2003 bands, iirc)
  Wed. 4/4/12 10:19pm PB:

efd, I Started a Joke?
  Wed. 4/4/12 10:21pm SteveL:

Ah, you are correct sir!
  Wed. 4/4/12 10:21pm PB:

This vocalist in fuxa sure sounds a lot like Dean Wareham, doesn' he?
  Wed. 4/4/12 10:21pm beast mode:

yep
  Wed. 4/4/12 10:22pm Aharon:

Hey, where's the umlaut?
Avatar Wed. 4/4/12 10:23pm efd:

@Aharon, coming right up!
Avatar Wed. 4/4/12 10:25pm efd:

Just now on Twitter from @SonicAvenues: @efd Thanks for the spin Evan...glad you're digging the album!
  Wed. 4/4/12 10:25pm PB:

efd, hitting it out of the park on mlb opening day (at least for me). Country Life is my favorite Roxy album. Husker Du next?
  Wed. 4/4/12 10:25pm Aharon:

Thanks! I feel like the parrot who said, "What? Up until now the food's been fine."
  Wed. 4/4/12 10:26pm G:

Röxy Müsic. Happy? Doesn't have quite the ring of Mötley Crüe, I admit
  Wed. 4/4/12 10:26pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Best album cover ever?
  Wed. 4/4/12 10:27pm SteveL:

PB: I'd never thought of Roxy Music and Husker Du in the same sentence before, but, there is a sonic connection.
  Wed. 4/4/12 10:28pm PB:

I was referring to efd's umlaut reference.
  Wed. 4/4/12 10:28pm SteveL:

I want a Röxy Müsic t-shirt. Badly.
  Wed. 4/4/12 10:31pm Joe D.:

wow Frankie Rose really was the brains behind the whole Vivian Girls thing wasn't she
  Wed. 4/4/12 10:32pm Danne D:

Coincidentally, Out of the Blue is one of my favorite Debbie Gibson songs :)

Couldn't resist.
  Wed. 4/4/12 10:35pm SteveL:

Oüt of the Blüe
  Wed. 4/4/12 10:35pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Brian Ferry has never been in a Scifi channel movie.
  Wed. 4/4/12 10:36pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Unlike der Gibber.
  Wed. 4/4/12 10:41pm Danne D:

Yay Jandek :)
  Wed. 4/4/12 10:42pm Danne D:

Yay Baseball Project Incarnation :)
  Wed. 4/4/12 10:43pm SteveL:

How do I not own this album yet?
  Wed. 4/4/12 10:43pm Droll:

Debbie Gibson? I thought "Out of the Blue" was an ËLÖ album.
  Wed. 4/4/12 10:43pm Skirkie:

Did anyone else hear "Rockin a hot dog?"
  Wed. 4/4/12 10:45pm SteveL:

Ken had a photo last week or so that represented the "Rockin a hot dog' point of view.

This may be the best album ever. Saw The Fleshtones in Madison WI twice. 81-83-First time through, there were about 20 people in the club. They were great. Next time? SRO.
  Wed. 4/4/12 10:50pm Barkevious Shabazz:

First CD release was last April -- Up-Front (1980) and Roman Gods (1982) on one CD, I believe...
  Wed. 4/4/12 10:56pm SteveL:

Very good to know. Thanks.
  Wed. 4/4/12 11:00pm Danne D:

I gotta copy of Take a Good Look by the Fleshtones - they are still outstanding :)

Hey efd. Been catching the last few sets, really have enjoyed it. Just wanted to say hi before I crash here in 3...2...1...
  Wed. 4/4/12 11:06pm G:

blogger above (Robin Wills of The Barracudas) says: "How to put a tag on Gotta Get Louder? It sits somewhere between Proto-Punk, Bubblegum/Hard Rock and Powerpop. It's insanely catchy and an instant exuberant classic. What makes this even more amazing is that most of the band were 15 at the time! "
  Wed. 4/4/12 11:23pm Danne D:

Yay Adam Warrock :)
  Wed. 4/4/12 11:23pm Joe D.:

Had to do the live edit because that clown WarRock won't make me a radio edit!
  Wed. 4/4/12 11:30pm tinaun:

i think this might be funky enough, though you can never be too sure about that
  Wed. 4/4/12 11:31pm Joe D.:

Rappers suck at making radio edits. I definitely feel your pain.

Oh ho!

I love this Ted Leo song :)

that audience isn't being too helpful.

Ted Leo not keen on the radio edit either? ;o)
  Wed. 4/4/12 11:51pm EL:

I was singing but the radio only goes one way.

this is totally ripping off Dire Straits.

Great show!!

hey EFD - GFS - (Evan Funk Davies - good fuckin show!)
Avatar Wed. 4/4/12 11:56pm efd:

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that's Mick Collins in the Keith Richards role on this song.
  Wed. 4/4/12 11:59pm EL:

Until next time! Thanks efd.
  Thu. 4/5/12 12:00am Danne D:

goodnight everyone :) thanks for another great show EFD!
  Thu. 4/5/12 8:58pm The Critic:

Congratulations. You played Air's "Seven Stars", It qualifies as chillwave but it is a stellar selection. Air did the soundtrack to the colorized version of Georges Méliès, A Trip to the Moon. Moi! C'est magnifique.
