Every show starts with the ’70s! We’ll rediscover forgotten rockers, revisit unfairly maligned disco beats and replay power-pop favorites. Next: plenty of new releases, occasional live bands and more. Don’t let the nickname confuse you.

Options October 17, 2012: BROUGHT LOW live set! (31 Days Of October Silent Fundraiser, week 3)

Listen to this show: | Add or read comments

When you hear The Brought Low you might think that they're from Detroit by way of Atlanta, or Flint by way of Houston. You'd be wrong, but it's understandable: this Brooklyn power trio mixes together classic Southern and Midwest Rock styles to create their own brew of '70s classic rock with a bit of a punk twist. Their most recent album, Third Record (Small Stone) drew comparisons to Humble Pie, the Stooges, The Saints, Grand Funk Railroad and yes, I'll say it, Lynyrd Skynyrd. Listen to their live set and draw your own comparison!


This special show is part of the WFMU's 31 Days Of October silent fundraiser -- we're giving you a full month of special shows instead of interrupting our on-air programming for a second time this year, but we really need your support to help keep us on the air.

Listener comments!

  Wed. 10/17/12 9:04pm Holly in NC:

First! Devil horns!
  Wed. 10/17/12 9:04pm SteveL:

Holy Mc ROCK!
  Wed. 10/17/12 9:07pm SteveL:

Horns back atcha' Holly!

Nazareth. Saw them open for Nugent on Cat Scratch Fever tour. They were pretty good. Pretty sure I was very stoned though.
  Wed. 10/17/12 9:09pm Danne D:

4th! Hiya Funk Fans :)
  Wed. 10/17/12 9:16pm SteveL:

Dunno Matt. The Bon rocks pretty hard. Hornworthy?
Avatar Wed. 10/17/12 9:17pm efd:

hey Holly, SteveL, Danne and Matt! Thanks for tuning in!

Great live set from The Brought Low coming up!!
  Wed. 10/17/12 9:21pm Jim in Maine:

We are ready for the Brought Low to shake the granite.
Avatar Wed. 10/17/12 9:22pm efd:

Folks, we're past the halfway point of the month and I've only made 1/5th of my fundraising goal. If you can, please pledge to support my show and WFMU's Silent Fundraiser by using the pledge box at the top of the page! We're not interrupting our programming a second time, but we DO need your support. Thanks!
  Wed. 10/17/12 9:25pm madachinka:

excellent show good for driving
  Wed. 10/17/12 9:25pm Barkevious Shabazz:

That Nagg record was tops. Who day?
  Wed. 10/17/12 9:26pm SteveL:

OK, here it is, my fundraising pitch.

I give a monthly payment and have made two small pledges this drive: One to Amanda Nazario and one to Psue Braun, who had a kick-ass show about two weeks ago (Pretty sure I was very stoned though.)[this is of course a joke]

Well, I'm giving something else again tonight. This shit's worth every penny, no matter how stupid I am to spend it. Follow my bad example, and thank you.
  Wed. 10/17/12 9:27pm Danne D:

NOW IT'S TIME FOR THE FUNK!
  Wed. 10/17/12 9:39pm Michael from the Left Coast:

I did my part re pledging
  Wed. 10/17/12 9:39pm Holly in NC:

@ efd & @SteveL -
I wish I wish I wish! I am a in-perpetuity monthly donor, but dear god I am poor. My best client's business is failing, so I'm working for her for free - I love her, and I fully believe in karma. Meanwhile, thank goodness I also love eggs & have a kickass local source from a great family down the street ;-)
  Wed. 10/17/12 9:40pm chrissss:

Ram Jam, eh? Who knew! gotta pledge again, but it's getting ludicrous. My entire wardrobe consists of fmu shirts.
Avatar Wed. 10/17/12 9:43pm efd:

Indeed you did Michael, thank you! And thanks Steve and Jim in Maine, and thanks for your previous/ongoing support Holly and chrissss! It's all very much appreciated. I'd love to hear from some folks who I DON'T already know tonight! :) Thanks everyone!
  Wed. 10/17/12 9:47pm Danne D:

This song is the perfect time to mention that Yankees/Tigers has been postponed until 4:07pm tomorrow due to threatening weather
  Wed. 10/17/12 9:47pm Barkevious Shabazz:

@Holly Cookie and Frank the Bull Terriers love eggs. Prepared by me.
  Wed. 10/17/12 9:48pm Danne D:

There ain't no game
  Wed. 10/17/12 9:50pm SteveL:

Never realized Black Betty cam out in 77. That's crazy.
  Wed. 10/17/12 9:52pm Danne D:

I thought Black Betty was eternal and always there.
Avatar Wed. 10/17/12 9:53pm efd:

Well the original "Black Betty" is from the '30s or something, of course, but yeah the LP is from '77. I actually would have guessed '76!
  Wed. 10/17/12 9:58pm Danne D:

EFD getting it done there...
  Wed. 10/17/12 10:03pm Danne D:

Bob Mould is awesome :)
Avatar Wed. 10/17/12 10:06pm efd:

sorry about that, folks! That's one advantage to having a band actually here live during my show, like Warm Soda a couple of weeks ago... although it's not like nothings ever gone wrong during a live-live broadcast either.
  Wed. 10/17/12 10:06pm Holly in NC:

@Barkevious: When I was little, butter was only for Thanksgiving & Xmas - -otherwise we had margarine (this is when margarine was significantly cheaper than butter , & no one, least of all my wonderful mom, knew it was toxic evil poison). That said, every morning my mom made our dog Liebschen *perfectly* soft- boiled eggs, with REAL BUTTER. Usually oatmeal also. Not instant.
I got scrambled with margarine, and Flintstones' vitamins ;-)
  Wed. 10/17/12 10:08pm chrissss:

Technical difficulties? I want my money back.
Avatar Wed. 10/17/12 10:09pm efd:

nooooo, we need it to help prevent technical difficulties!
  Wed. 10/17/12 10:12pm SteveL:

Repeating my fundraising pitch (see @9:26)
  Wed. 10/17/12 10:13pm chrisss:

bulletproof argument!
  Wed. 10/17/12 10:14pm Barkevious Shabazz:

@Holly Leibschen is a very sweet name for a pooch. My dopes love oatmeal too, but only with real maple syrup.
  Wed. 10/17/12 10:23pm Holly in NC:

@Barkevious - You obviously are a man after my own (and our respective dogs' heart)! My Liebchen was the best dog ever (& yes German Shephard). Of course now I have to reassure Burke, Felix & Pie - the black labs on my feet - that they should in way feel dissed. I suspect peanut butter treats will help.
  Wed. 10/17/12 10:23pm SteveL:

Shameless Fort Wayne Ind. plug. The Brought Low should stop in at @brassrailfw sometime. Its score well on the trashy-rock-club charts!
  Wed. 10/17/12 10:24pm Danne D:

So if Evan Funk Davies had a binder full of women, how many do you think it would have?
  Wed. 10/17/12 10:26pm SteveL:

"Forget the time I nailed you wife, let's get the band back together."

Awesome.
  Wed. 10/17/12 10:26pm Holly in NC:

Umm. that binder would have more than 12 and less than 14, I think!
  Wed. 10/17/12 10:27pm john:

Hey all! Someone please tell Danne "thirteen," OK? Thanks!
  Wed. 10/17/12 10:28pm Richard from Venezuela:

Greetings Evan and all the listeners.
  Wed. 10/17/12 10:30pm Danne D:

Hola Ricardo :)
Vamos Venezuela! I see you are up to 4th :)
  Wed. 10/17/12 10:31pm Danne D:

I heard that A-Rod where the number of women he flirts with during the game on his back. What's that number again?
  Wed. 10/17/12 10:31pm Holly in NC:

Like this Celia & Mutations
  Wed. 10/17/12 10:32pm Ornr:

Great live set. Glitch be damned. Brought Low reliably (and loudly) bring the goods live. And long live Hank's!
  Wed. 10/17/12 10:32pm Danne D:

that's "wears" not "where" :(
I never used to do that. I fear that is feeble-mindedness setting in :(
Avatar Wed. 10/17/12 10:32pm efd:

Hi Richard, nice to see you here. And hi john!
  Wed. 10/17/12 10:32pm Danne D:

Celia later gained fame as the lead singer for Rush ;o)
  Wed. 10/17/12 10:35pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Every time i hear the beginning of this Eddie Current track i think it's Little Room by Bunnydrums. Am I from Philly? Yes. Am I old? Yes.
  Wed. 10/17/12 10:38pm Danne D:

:) Evan you never cease do deliver and amaze :)
  Wed. 10/17/12 10:40pm Holly in NC:

Danne! Yes, I like Rush, the Yankees, *&* Duke. And I was born in Connecticut. And I'm absolutely not an asshole.

PS - I am happy about rain delay, though doubt it will do any good, sigh.
  Wed. 10/17/12 10:41pm Larry:

Duncan Reid record is on LBH records
  Wed. 10/17/12 10:44pm Danne D:

@Holly I like Rush :)
  Wed. 10/17/12 10:45pm Danne D:

Of course a progressive heavy metal band would have a name that is a statistics pun :)
  Wed. 10/17/12 10:49pm Kat in Chicago:

A WFMU meetup here and of course I can't go. @#$&%! job. :(
  Wed. 10/17/12 10:52pm Danne D:

:( that's unfair Kat - how can it be a meetup without you there?
  Wed. 10/17/12 10:52pm Danne D:

guess you gotta quit your job ;)
  Wed. 10/17/12 10:53pm Holly in NC:

This song (Gap Dream) is in top 20 of year for pop, I think
  Wed. 10/17/12 10:53pm Kat in Chicago:

that day soon come.
  Wed. 10/17/12 10:54pm Holly in NC:

@Kat - congrats!
Avatar Wed. 10/17/12 10:54pm efd:

I'll tell you what, the dB's are in danger of being edged out of efd Album Of The Year by that Gap Dream album.
Avatar Wed. 10/17/12 10:55pm efd:

Kat, too bad you can't make it! You were one of the first people I thought of when I heard about it.

Larry, thanks for the Duncan Reid label info!
  Wed. 10/17/12 10:57pm Holly in NC:

Nothing shabby about this Marble Vanity - oh gosh, flute, too!!!!
  Wed. 10/17/12 11:05pm Holly in NC:

Where's Julie? She likes Jacco G. as much as I (& apparently efd) do! Julie?
  Wed. 10/17/12 11:06pm Kat in Chicago:

I'm still obsessed with this Jacco Gardner song too.
  Wed. 10/17/12 11:06pm Droll:

[Dashing in from kitchen]
Everything sounds better with Mellotron! Great song!
[Back to kitchen]
  Wed. 10/17/12 11:07pm Barkevious Shabazz:

This Jacco Gardner might rip beck off a tad but damn if that dinky keyboard doesn't grab me by the snoot every time.
  Wed. 10/17/12 11:07pm Danne D:

I love that EFD did the bit anyway :D
  Wed. 10/17/12 11:07pm Larry:

Marble vanity records is on Slow Fizz records
  Wed. 10/17/12 11:08pm Danne D:

So if Clay ever filled in for Mary Wing would the show be called 99% Whatever?
  Wed. 10/17/12 11:09pm Holly in NC:

@Larry - thank you.
@Droll - what's for dinner?
  Wed. 10/17/12 11:13pm Danne D:

:( ugh Reigning Sound. Why are all these great shows happening when there is no way I can go *sigh*
  Wed. 10/17/12 11:21pm Droll:

DD, Clay may or may not be the 99%, but he is definitely 100% Whatever.
Holly, Some leftover stir fry over overcooked couscous, paired with a local German style larger (which may have been the better dish)
  Wed. 10/17/12 11:21pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Big night for the woodwinds.
  Wed. 10/17/12 11:23pm john:

The EFD Flute Rock Segment™ continues. Hope this becomes a weekly event!
Avatar Wed. 10/17/12 11:24pm efd:

yeah, I'm not sure how this happened exactly...
  Wed. 10/17/12 11:24pm Danne D:

@John from your lips to Ian Anderson's ears ;)
  Wed. 10/17/12 11:26pm Droll:

. o O ( Mellotron: Check, flute solo: Check... If there's any 7/8 time signatures we're going to have to file a report with the Prog Police )
  Wed. 10/17/12 11:27pm john:

Or at least demand that you open the show with a Caravan record.
Avatar Wed. 10/17/12 11:30pm efd:

SILENT FUNDRAISER UPDATE: After a nice jump up to 30% early in the show I've been stuck there all night. 30 minutes left in tonight's show, and then I've got just two shows left to try to raise the remaining 70% of my goal for the month. To those of you who have pledged already, thank you! To those who have not, please think about everything you get from WFMU and make a pledge if you're able. There are t-shirts, DJ premiums and more waiting for you! Thanks.
  Wed. 10/17/12 11:31pm Holly in NC:

Ok ,quick - what w/b best Bizarros/flute segue? Does such a thing exist?
  Wed. 10/17/12 11:44pm Danne D:

YAY :)
  Wed. 10/17/12 11:44pm Danne D:

effin' work almost made me miss this
  Wed. 10/17/12 11:45pm Holly in NC:

oh hell yeah ;-)
  Wed. 10/17/12 11:46pm RCinMT:

holy shit, dude! this is f'in sick!
  Wed. 10/17/12 11:49pm Michael from the Left Coast:

I believe there is a new Ladytron record on the way (I would swear Daniel posted a video on facebook)
  Wed. 10/17/12 11:50pm Holly in NC:

Btw, some idiot leech on slsk has been trying to dl that ruckus r. song from me for days now, keeps changing his/her user name, has been thorn in my side
  Wed. 10/17/12 11:53pm miggy cab:
