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.

Avatar Wed. 8/15/12 9:11pm efd:

Hi Danne, hi Kat!

Tom, that girl had good taste!
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:12pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Luv The Motors!

S'up Kat and Barevious, and Tom
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:13pm Matt from Springfield:

Hi Evan! Hi Danne, Tom, Kat, Barkevious!
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:13pm Danne D:

heya Matt
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:14pm Matt from Springfield:

TRANSPARENT red vinyl? :)
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:15pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Evenin' all.
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:16pm Matt from Springfield:

@Danne: as a huge 80s fan, have you ever heard of the band Hipsway? I just heard them today.
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:16pm Tom - In Marine Park Brooklyn:

She did EFD !!!! ... she was an early "bloomer" in '77 !! too and turned me on to Pat Duncan on this wonderful station not too long after that
Avatar Wed. 8/15/12 9:17pm efd:

Hi Matt! I'm going to say translucent but not transparent.

Top o' the evening to you, Barkevious.
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:17pm Danne D:

@Matt Heard of 'em - can't remember what they were known for though
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:18pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Got The Dickies on white vinyl 10".
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:18pm Danne D:

So Pat Duncan was your gateway show, Tom, Cool :)
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:21pm PB:

I take it this Fat Boys track is representative of the very early stage of drum machine technology.
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:21pm G:

I see lots of us are still on August keyboard holiday! :-) Checking in...
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:22pm Danne D:

EFD was the original drum machine :)
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:23pm Matt from Springfield:

@Danne: Scottish band from the mid-80s, "The Honey Thief" is the one I heard--thought you might know them :)

@EFD: Translucent, that still rocks! :)
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:23pm Tom - In Marine Park Brooklyn:

yep ...... the Emerson radiio haha,,, the tuner in the Big Bad , Marantz reciver coudn't ,, get WFMU noisy even when you hit the FM mono button..
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:23pm Matt from Springfield:

No time no G!
How was your August keyboard holiday?
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:23pm Danne D:

I'm at work :( - just hoping people stay now until the Adam Warrock song is over :)
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:24pm Matt from Springfield:

LONG time, no G!
Ugh, brain still on keyboard holiday ;)
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:25pm Matt from Springfield:

Take consolation Danne, at least you can get WFMU at work. It's a lifeline, or rather a soulline for me as well, count your blessings!
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:26pm john:

Disco 3!
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:27pm Danne D:

@Matt (listening via computer btw) Headphones on
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:28pm mildred:

So happy to have the radio and EFD playing tonight. Thanks!
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:28pm G:

I'm around, even when out of town. (I work online.) But when socializing with family out of town I am only listening to archives early morning or late evening while working, and that means no live comments...

Just got back home Monday and had a wisdom tooth out today, my first extraction *ever*. Aren't they *fun*! Y'know, they just won't let you comment when they have pliers in your mouth :-)
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:28pm EL:

Has anyone here ever made it all the way through the Fat Boys movie, Disorderlies?
Avatar Wed. 8/15/12 9:30pm efd:

thank YOU, Mildred! And howdy to G, john, and EL! (I have not seen any, let alone all, of Disorderlies.)
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:31pm john:

Hey Evan!

If you're playing their records, you owe it to yourself to catch Disorderlies.
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:32pm EL:

Pretty crazy to think of how popular they were back then. That was a great track.
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:32pm Holly in NC:

I heard this opening riff on tinny phone speakers 2 rooms away - I had NO idea anyone but me knew about the Wild Seeds! Dang, Evan! And hello & thank you!
Avatar Wed. 8/15/12 9:32pm efd:

ha, john, I was kind of figuring that now that the topic's come up.
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:33pm john:

You'll be glad you did. Probably.
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:33pm Matt from Springfield:

Hi Holly!
Now you know that if ANYONE else is going to know of a band, it's EFD! :)
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:34pm Danne D:

NOW IT'S TIME FOR THE FUNK :)
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:35pm Kat in Chicago:

Holly, I'm trying to remember when and how I first heard this song, as the name Wild Seeds means nothing to me at this point. But I remember it vividly, perhaps because there are so few odes (?) to male sexual inadequacy in rock music ;)
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:36pm Danne D:

Hi Holly :)

Packing up now - getting the hell out of work
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:36pm Holly in NC:

(collecting myself) Hi everyone!
Re The Fast: super great chapter in Jake Austin's Rocktober book 'Flying Saucers Rock N' Roll'. Whole book is excellent.
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:37pm G:

@Kat; Few, but there's Genesis "Counting Out Time" from the _Lamb_ album (in keeping with the 70s aspect of this show)
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:38pm Kat in Chicago:

And personal fave, Art Brut's "Rusted Guns of Milan".
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:40pm Holly in NC:

(collecting myself) Hi everyone!
Re The Fast: super great chapter in Jake Austin's Rocktober book 'Flying Saucers Rock N' Roll'. Whole book is excellent.
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:40pm Matt from Springfield:

Poempromo by The Motors!
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:41pm john:

Who would win a race, The Fast or The Quick?
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:42pm G:

Quick, take a guess...
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:42pm Kat in Chicago:

I endorse Jake Austen's book as well. He is also beloved in Chicago and beyond as the puppeteer of Ratso, Miss Mia's sidekick on public access dance party Chic-A-Go-Go!
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:42pm Danne D:

I wonder if they are related to Cal Zone!

Really gone now for a while :)
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:45pm Holly in NC:

Mr. Softee! Loves Lies Limp! My Dog Can't Bark! Look ar Granny Run Run! We Didn't Make it Through the Night! My Brush Won't Paint No More! Turn Turtle! My Husband's Got No Courage In Him! Any others?
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:46pm Kat in Chicago:

Holly... wow!
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:48pm Holly in NC:

Oh - and Stutter!
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:48pm G:

A favorite topic, apparently :-)
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:50pm PB:

Like this Woollen Kits track. Who are these guys?
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:50pm Kat in Chicago:

"Stutter" was the other song I was trying to think of. I don't even know some of the ones Holly named.
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:50pm Holly in NC:

No, was doing research earlier in the week - August Darnell & Maddy Prior both had birthdays, & I love their 2 songs above, which got me thinking. Just bizarre synchronicity.
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:51pm Kat in Chicago:

Oh that's right, you tweeted about "My Husband's Got No Courage In Him" the other day.
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:54pm Matt from Springfield:

Hey, the audio software Audacity is now generating and releasing rock songs!
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:57pm Holly in NC:

@G - sorry about your tooth! Are you in pain?
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:57pm Matt from Springfield:

KEVIN LEE & HEARTBEAT! Just heard this one, am LOVING this group!
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:58pm jmd:

Gotta certain Cheap Trick ring to it, for sure. Terrific! Thanks.
  Wed. 8/15/12 9:59pm Matt from Springfield:

@jmd: Yeah! Like the Cheap Trick that almost was!
  Wed. 8/15/12 10:00pm john:

Ahh, now THIS song is one of the 14 reasons why the Shoes album is my record of the year!
  Wed. 8/15/12 10:02pm G:

Nah, I have good dental genes. Six total fillings in forty-plus years of dentistry, and none for the last twenty years. I just had one wisdom tooth that they said was getting loose and had to go. No complications, just a minor dull ache at this point... Hard to type comments with one hand, they recommended ice on the cheek tonight "just in case"... But I'd rather have been listening to the radio and reading this afternoon...
  Wed. 8/15/12 10:04pm Matt from Springfield:

Bring on The Shoes! In all their Shoesyness!
Shoesie and the Banshees!
  Wed. 8/15/12 10:04pm Barkevious Shabazz:

I thought "Hot Mess" was priceless.
  Wed. 8/15/12 10:10pm Matt from Springfield:

If you can't make that show tomorrow, 8 pm (EDT) is a nationwide showing of "Manos Hands of Fate" with the MST3K people doing live commentary in theaters! Being in NoVA, that's where I'm going to be!
(But if you're in the NYC area, please see the show :)
  Wed. 8/15/12 10:11pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Also, catch Crime, perforning their smash hit,"Gangster Funk."
  Wed. 8/15/12 10:12pm Kat in Chicago:

Done with work, off to a show. Good night Funksters!
  Wed. 8/15/12 10:13pm Holly in NC:

Good night Kat! You never sleep, do you? ;-)
  Wed. 8/15/12 10:13pm Matt from Springfield:

Cool fadeout!
  Wed. 8/15/12 10:16pm Holly in NC:

Oh cool, I just dled this Virginia Plain single from their bandcamp
  Wed. 8/15/12 10:19pm Holly in NC:

Which w/b http://virginiaplain.bandcamp.com/
Free download!
  Wed. 8/15/12 10:20pm PB:

I was out walking the dog so I didn't actually here the Swamp Thing track. Was it a cover of the Roxy Music track? Speaking of Roxy, they have finally gotten the full box treatment. I think the release date is August 28.
Avatar Wed. 8/15/12 10:23pm efd:

hi PB, nope, that was their own song with that title. You also may not have heard me mention that Woollen Kits are from Australia, but that's about all I know about them.
  Wed. 8/15/12 10:23pm PB:

Scratch that last comment. I take it the band is Virginia Plain and the track is Swamp Thing. Don't mind me, not getting enough sleep obviously.
  Wed. 8/15/12 10:27pm Holly in NC:

@PB - It's not the Chameleons song either.
Both are great.
So is the Alan Moore run of the comic ;-)
  Wed. 8/15/12 10:28pm PB:

@holly, yeah I remember that Chameleons song.
  Wed. 8/15/12 10:32pm Destroit:

hello EFD and everyone. Glad to be here.

@asparagus: We're maxed out on our Supergrass-ness. Next question.
  Wed. 8/15/12 10:37pm Matt from Springfield:

Supergrass, for your Superlungs, our Supergirl :)

Hi Matt. Asparagus grows like supergrass in the right temp, rain...and on tiny mounds.
  Wed. 8/15/12 10:39pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Old Muffs.
  Wed. 8/15/12 10:41pm Matt from Springfield:

@Julie: How was your trip to NC?

Speaking of which, have you ever played XTC ("That's Really Super, Supergirl")
Avatar Wed. 8/15/12 10:42pm Julie:

It was good, thanks. I waved at you as I drove through Virginia. And no I don't think I've played any XTC

gay cat park :D
  Wed. 8/15/12 11:08pm Ike:

Gay Cat Park might be the best band name EVER! Or the best worst band name ever. One of those!
Avatar Wed. 8/15/12 11:10pm Julie:

I would like to see gay cat park on a bill with kiss the anus of a black cat
  Wed. 8/15/12 11:13pm Barkevious Shabazz:

I'm sorry, but can you win tickets to a show by "Turlet"?
  Wed. 8/15/12 11:19pm northguineahills:

I agree w/ Ike's assessment!
  Wed. 8/15/12 11:21pm Chop Scott:

YES! UFO, killer...
  Wed. 8/15/12 11:27pm Bill Aucoin:

Kiss's "Rock Bottom" is vastly superior. Have you seen the Kiss lawnmower?
  Wed. 8/15/12 11:31pm Danne D:

BTW USA USA USA!
Won 1-0 at Mexico tonight :)
  Wed. 8/15/12 11:34pm Matt from Springfield:

Deep Time reminds me a bit of singer Nena.
  Wed. 8/15/12 11:38pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Deep Time sounds like they should be on "Wanna Buy a Bridge?"
Avatar Wed. 8/15/12 11:43pm Julie:

i keep thinking you said amon duul
  Wed. 8/15/12 11:43pm Matt from Springfield:

Wow, Rock Bottom was a H&M song.
  Wed. 8/15/12 11:56pm Matt from Springfield:

Great Sonny & The Sunsets!
