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

Good evening Evan.

Hi Richard, hi Pine! Thanks for listening - I hope I haven't peaked too soon.
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:11pm steve:

hey all!
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:13pm steve:

id really like to hear the backstory of how Billy Gibbons came to put out a split with such artists, on such a label
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:13pm SteveL:

Ya just don't hear Moon Martin on the radio all that much.

God I love WFMU.

Did Pussy become Black Widdow or was that Pesky Gee!?
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:33pm Pine:

It was Pesky Gee!, always get them confused
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:35pm john:

Hey Evan! For the record, Mickey Gallagher also played on a couple Clash albums and toured with them. I'm also going to go out on a limb and say Talk Talk Talk is my fave P. Furs elpee.
  Wed. 12/5/12 9:41pm Joe D.:

Jobson?! Gotta check the "Prog Rock" box off now.
Avatar Wed. 12/5/12 10:08pm efd:

ha, I can tell Danne D isn't listening right now or he'd be all over that. Hi Droll, and hi Amanda, chad, Barkevious and everyone else!
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:09pm SteveL:

How is neighborhood life around Jersey City? Things still piecing together?
Avatar Wed. 12/5/12 10:13pm efd:

I'm not the best person to ask since I'm really only in JC on Wednesday nights, but at this point I think the biggest issue is that the PATH train to NYC only runs until 10pm. Not sure when they'll get back to 24-hour service. And Hoboken (next town over) still has no PATH service at all.
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:14pm Droll:

DanneD and I are probably the worst offenders, but WFMU DJs seem to be awful sympathetic to prog. Some will even apologetically admit they like it.

  Wed. 12/5/12 10:15pm Danne D:

Hi Funk Fans :)

So you mean I missed Eddie Jobson in that small window b/w getting out of my car at the Starbucks and getting my drink and my computer up and running!?!?

Thank goodness for the archives :)
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:16pm Danne D:

Hi everyone :)

Hola Ricardo, glad to see you here :)
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:16pm Danne D:

Hi Amanda too :)
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:17pm Joe D.:

almost definitely gonna buy this record. Despite my objection to Burger Records.
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:17pm Danne D:

WFMU is leading the Prog Revolution, Droll :D
Avatar Wed. 12/5/12 10:18pm efd:

what? How can you object to Burger records?
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:18pm steve:

play some Starcastle
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:19pm G:

or not :-P
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:20pm Danne D:

Droll, did you see this? I'd be inclined to go except that I really don't like cruises (can't swim and there's the whole the Captain is actually the law of the land deal) and then there's the fact that this cruise would be full of prog rock fans:

http://abcnewsradioonline.com/music-news/2012/10/16/lineup-announced-for-yes-headlined-prog-rock-cruise.html
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:20pm Droll:

DD, Keep acting like prog is perfectly normal. Just like "Disco Sucks", it will pass and eventually we will be rewarded for our preservation efforts.
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:22pm Danne D:

Yup, I'm telling you Droll, 2012 was a big year for Prog Appreciation.

Btw, I love that said cruise was actually foretold here in this thread a year earlier: http://www.progarchives.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=82097
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:23pm Danne D:

  Wed. 12/5/12 10:25pm Joe D.:

A. I object to the cassette fetishism. I love cassettes, but I feel like a 7 dollar cassette pressing of something thats already on vinyl or cd (on another label no less) is essentially pointless.
B. I had a group of friends (one of which is a notable FOT) drive from NJ to Austin on the promise that they could film the climax of their mockumentary at Burger's SXSW showcase... only to arrive 3 days later and get a text message saying "Well, you can really just film it anywhere and say it's SXSW...
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:26pm Joe D.:

they sign alot of really great bands though I'm hating on them as I continue to paypal them all sorts of $$$
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:27pm Droll:

DD, I saw that cruise, not really my thing either. I did see UK (Seattle) a few months ago, and Prog bands hold up well over time, so it might be good entertainment. I just can't handle 5,000 prog rockers at once. For a week. On a ship.
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:29pm G:

What's the over-under on number of suicides off of that cruise ship? :-P
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:29pm Danne D:

LOL Droll exactly. Can't imagine the best M/F ratio there.

Didn't realize that UK was touring as well - that would be fun to see actually, I think. Where did you see them in Seattle? Crocodile?
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:30pm john:

Over/under is "three too few."
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:33pm steve:

i cant help but wonder what a Tangerine Dream set sounds like in 2012
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:34pm Droll:

G, That's a self-selecting audience, your vulgarities and horrors are another man's pure pleasure.
D, Triple Door, best hall in town. The M/F ratio is inversely proportional to the on-stage wanking.
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:34pm SteveL:

@G: Good question. So many hopes to be dashed.
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:35pm G:

i probably know more about Yes than anybody here. but i wouldn't be caught dead on that cruise. 0:-)
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:35pm G:

@steve: on youtube, search "tangerine dream 2012" for a sample
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:37pm Droll:

. o O ( See what I mean -- they're all closet prog fans! )
Stop apologizing, prog is perfectly normal music!
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:37pm Danne D:

Prog Rock Is Good For Your Head
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:38pm Mrs. Horn:

I'll be on Lido Deck.
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:38pm Droll:

DD, Don't overdo it. It's normal. Everyone does it.
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:39pm G:

See what I started? Months ago, I mentioned what happened to Mrs. Horn on a Pseu Braun comments board, and someone really took it to heart LOL
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:39pm Danne D:

I remember a Best Show chat where everyone was out-progging each other (for example my first car was a '71 Blue Ford Maverick that I dubbed the Tarkus).

That competition basically stopped when someone noted that they had learned like the tabbing for 3/4 of Tales from Topic Oceans
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:41pm Danne D:

@G - heh these comments boards are amazing for that sort of thing. I was traveling a couple weeks back and made like 1 comment and it proceeded to divert the entire comment board for the next hour I think
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:43pm Danne D:

(Meanwhile as we yammer on, EFD is providing yet another kick-ass set)
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:43pm Carolyn:

Hi Evan. Please play some Titanics next.
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:43pm davefromknoxville:

Never fear, EFD, dfk (also known as #608) is here!
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:44pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Acdc need to dump the slob in the hat and hire the dude in Upper Crust.
Avatar Wed. 12/5/12 10:46pm efd:

Welcome #608, I have noted your attendance!

Hi Carolyn - I wish I could!
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:46pm Chop Scott:

Echoes of the Boston heyday...Glad Nat F. is still out there delivering.
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:46pm Carolyn:

Damn.
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:49pm SteveL:

All three singers for these bands have a great higher/nasally quality. Could that be the reason for grouping them in concert? Or am I just high?
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:49pm G:

That's not an either/or, steve. :)
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:50pm john:

Because they're touring together, they just all got colds at the same time.
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:51pm G:

"The Live Show Set"
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:52pm Danne D:

This website has its priorities in order: http://www.musicstreetjournal.com/cdreviews_main.cfm
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:52pm SteveL:

G: It depends. @ John: Lots of germs on the road, that's for sure.
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:55pm Rickwaukee:

Has anyone heard if Subsonics are doing any live shows in the near future?
Avatar Wed. 12/5/12 10:57pm efd:

^^^ does slow burn
  Wed. 12/5/12 10:59pm Danne D:

Love this song
  Wed. 12/5/12 11:00pm G:

Could he be serious? SRSLY
  Wed. 12/5/12 11:01pm G:

The Subsonics inquirer.
  Wed. 12/5/12 11:02pm G:

Maybe he means outside NYC
  Wed. 12/5/12 11:02pm Danne D:

Is the lead singer previously from Velocity Girl?
Avatar Wed. 12/5/12 11:03pm efd:

I'm confident he was kidding.
  Wed. 12/5/12 11:08pm Rickwaukee:

I feel all T-Rexy after those last two
  Wed. 12/5/12 11:09pm G:

man, i need tv when i got t-rex?
  Wed. 12/5/12 11:11pm Danne D:

*sigh* Maxwell's is so much harder to get to now with no PATH service :(
  Wed. 12/5/12 11:12pm Rickwaukee:

Only uno Mutante, I hear

Quite like this one. Kept me from going to the garage to change the laundry.
Avatar Wed. 12/5/12 11:24pm efd:

Yeah, that Thomas Function is a good one InBrkly! An efd classic, as it were.
Avatar Wed. 12/5/12 11:24pm efd:

whoops unless you were talking about Ruckus Roboticus, of course!
  Wed. 12/5/12 11:26pm SteveL:

Any music that prevents the completion of chores is alright by me.
  Wed. 12/5/12 11:31pm sweet cheri:

evan, i just can't wait for your funky xmas show! btw have you got a favorite xnas tune? my favorite xmas tune is "silent night"
  Wed. 12/5/12 11:33pm sweet cheri:

happy holidays everybody!!
  Wed. 12/5/12 11:34pm InBrkly:

Nah I meant Thomas Function. Changed the laundry after that and now dig'n The Associates.
  Wed. 12/5/12 11:36pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Even the fact that you see the associates album cover when you look up "Reverb" in the dictionary doesn't stop the album from sporting 3 or 4 ace singles.
  Wed. 12/5/12 11:38pm Shane Victorino:

Yeah!
  Wed. 12/5/12 11:41pm Joe D.:

hell yeah social media airhorn!!!!
  Wed. 12/5/12 11:42pm Rickwaukee:

is someone playing soccer?
  Wed. 12/5/12 11:43pm SteveL:

Blow daddy, blow.
  Wed. 12/5/12 11:43pm Mary Wing in the library (with a poin-ted stick):

Was that a real airhorn, or a virtual airhorn?
  Wed. 12/5/12 11:44pm sweet cheri:

i'm sorry i'm late evan, but i was at a xmas party tonight. please forgive me..
Avatar Wed. 12/5/12 11:45pm efd:

Mary, you'll see when you come into the studio.

Hi cheri, 2 weeks til the Christmas show.

Not sure I"m any happier about Shane Victorino turning up on the comments board than I am about him joining the Red Sox. Which is to say, not that happy.
  Wed. 12/5/12 11:48pm Joe D.:

Spanish Moss is on Burger too. Im probably just gonna cancel my jihad :(
Avatar Wed. 12/5/12 11:50pm efd:

Well this release is on Spot-On Sound, if that's any consolation. I get what you're saying about the cassettes (as I hinted at on Facebook last night), but they put out such great records that I can't hate on them for that. Plus they were super-nice when I went to the store in September. And they're nice to animals!
  Wed. 12/5/12 11:52pm steve:

i found a copy of the Infinity PEople record (co-released on Burger) right after the show last week! so awesome
Avatar Wed. 12/5/12 11:53pm efd:

oh good steve! That's a great album.
  Wed. 12/5/12 11:53pm Danne D:

Thanks for a great show Evan :)

I'm taking off after this song.

Have a great night everyone :) See some of you at the Bell House on the 7th I hope :)
  Wed. 12/5/12 11:54pm 12539:

Thanks for the rollicking show, Evan.
(listening in secret silence, as I often do)
  Wed. 12/5/12 11:54pm Uncle Michael:

You don't love the flyin' Hawaiian, efd?
Avatar Wed. 12/5/12 11:56pm efd:

see you there, Danne!

Thanks 12539!

Uncle Michael, no, I'm not really a fan -- especially if it's laying the groundwork for an Ellsbury trade as some suspect.
  Wed. 12/5/12 11:58pm steve:

i hope the airhorn accented social media becomes a recurring segment.
  Wed. 12/5/12 11:58pm Uncle Michael:

I think he's a bad signing mainly because of his age.

The only time I ever saw the JSBE, they were opening for Bostonian friends.
Avatar Wed. 12/5/12 11:59pm efd:

@steve I think it has to now!
  Wed. 12/5/12 11:59pm SteveL:

Did the Lyres ever play with the Fleshtones? (Wild guess of the night.)
  Thu. 12/6/12 12:00am Uncle Michael:

Thanks for the show, efd.
  Thu. 12/6/12 12:00am Rickwaukee:

bedtime, I'm tyred - nother great show!
