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.

Good evening. Nice night to pack up a vinyl mailing.

I've really grown to love this Cute Lepers album. You're reminding me to put it back into the car. (They will officially follow the Sex Pistols.)

Hey everyone, thanks for tuning in tonight! I'm looking forward to doing a "regular" show tonight after a couple of weeks of planned and unplanned specials...

Please continue.

@Stevel are you familier with The Briefs some of the guys from Cute Lepers
Avatar    Wed. 4/24/13 9:24pm Stevel:

joe: I am now. Thanks. But, do they have backup singers?
Avatar    Wed. 4/24/13 9:26pm joe:

No and they do tend to lean towards a more humorus side. Good stuff though

@EFD Pretty inspiring. Not a Lotta folks I know were loudfans.

I played that Stereolab song for a friend of mine when it first came out and asked him to identify the group, and he guessed Inspiral Carpets, which I thought was weird given that he had never heard the song or heard of Stereolab before.

While Peter Murphy does time for dui and meth possession, this Wax Idols will do fine. Nice mugshot.
Avatar    Wed. 4/24/13 9:48pm Stevel:

This Wax idols video is flawed but pretty f-ing amazing. Same song. Fierce. Spacy. Melodic.

are you gonna play the airhorn in lieu of clapping??
Avatar    Wed. 4/24/13 10:07pm efd:

I'd probably get thrown out.

Probably :p

And thank you Chop Scott and Mr. Napoli for setting me straight on the venue! I don't know why I'm having such a hard time with that.
Avatar    Wed. 4/24/13 10:11pm Holly in NC:

Hi EFD!
fwiw, native folks from Connecticut really, really do not like being called tri-staters. We're New Englanders, damnit.

Great Chris Stamey song.

#Barkevious, thanks for Miller family fund link.
Interesting interview w Hether of Wax Idols here: www.emusic.com...
Avatar    Wed. 4/24/13 10:13pm efd:

whoops! Sorry, New Englanders.
Avatar    Wed. 4/24/13 10:14pm joe:

@ Holly fine be like that we'll let PA be part of our group then ;)
Avatar    Wed. 4/24/13 10:15pm joe:

For those that have not seen B.A.L.L will be doing a reunion show at Electric Ballroom or maybe this only excites me. :)
Avatar    Wed. 4/24/13 10:16pm Holly in NC:

Also huge props to Jozef Becker for setting up Miller fund - Have I ever mentioned how much I love Thin White Rope?
And how they (including Jozef) played 1 of best shows I've ever seen to just 5 people?
Avatar    Wed. 4/24/13 10:17pm Holly in NC:

@joe no, that IS exciting!

EFD, were you able to get a copy of the Trouble in Mind 4way RSD 7"?
Avatar    Wed. 4/24/13 10:24pm efd:

Not personally, but it is en route thanks to a well-placed listener. A couple of well-placed listeners, actually!

(Joe Belock is getting the other one.)
Avatar    Wed. 4/24/13 10:27pm Holly in NC:

Looking forward to hearing it :-)

@EFD and the elusive Academy Fight Song 7" remains ever elusive, wonderful cheesy keyboard sound and all?

Hello, fellow comment-board creepies! Pete Galub's playing this Saturday night at Littlefield in Brooklyn. He puts on a good show.

Radio hell.
Avatar    Wed. 4/24/13 10:38pm efd:

I always associate it with WNEW-FM from way back when, but I don't know if they were the first to do it.
Avatar    Wed. 4/24/13 10:40pm amEdeo:

@Shabazz: Haw.
@efd: Hmm. Thanks! I feel strangely compelled to get to the bottom of this...
Avatar    Wed. 4/24/13 10:41pm Loretta:

yeah, WNEW!
Avatar    Wed. 4/24/13 10:49pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

WNEW and 92.3 K-Rock did it. I think Three-for-Thursday came later.
Avatar    Wed. 4/24/13 10:49pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

Say what you will about WNEW, but Scott Muni's voice taught me that rock 'n' roll was actually important.
Avatar    Wed. 4/24/13 10:50pm Holly in NC:

WPLR (New Haven) MAY have done it ... I listened to a lot of NYC stations also

...Deniz Tek song reminds me of Sonic Youth a bit...
Avatar    Wed. 4/24/13 10:53pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

Re: "native folks from Connecticut really, really do not like being called tri-staters. We're New Englanders, damnit."

I always figured this to depend on the part of CT. Hartford is the Yankees/Red Sox dividing line. As a decades-long CT-crosser, I can't imagine anyone southwest of New Haven having too much of a case for not being a tri-stater.
Avatar    Wed. 4/24/13 10:53pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

Holly, you a WMass-er?
  Wed. 4/24/13 10:53pm Mike Sin:

I think "two for tuesdays," at least in NYC, might actually go back to WPLJ-FMin the late '70s, IIRC.
Avatar    Wed. 4/24/13 10:55pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

I only really knew rock WPLJ from (mesmerizing, as a kid) TV commercials. By the time I tuned regularly in it was Power 95.

If it's got to be clean it's got to be tied ?
Avatar    Wed. 4/24/13 10:58pm efd:

Pete, I'm just going to quietly edit your comment so it says _Scott_ Muni, as you intended, instead of Paul Muni.
Avatar    Wed. 4/24/13 10:58pm Barkevious Shabazz:

This Goodman is great.
Avatar    Wed. 4/24/13 10:59pm Holly in NC:

@Pete - Born & bred JUST SW of New Haven CT (Milford, well before it became a suburb of fucking Greenwich - my whole lower-middle class neighborhood's been razed to make way for executive condos) and yeah, we were New Englanders. Then went to college & lived in WMass, which is where my heart is, really. Northampton.

Good thing the Hot Nun track ended. My dog is looking desperate.

If this is the wimps of let's go home and be boring, we may have a new Shabazz household favorite.
Avatar    Wed. 4/24/13 11:07pm efd:

@Barkevious, that song isn't on the Repeat album, but I'm 96% certain it's the same Wimps.
Avatar    Wed. 4/24/13 11:07pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Top notch.

The dog is starting to become irate with me.
Avatar    Wed. 4/24/13 11:10pm Barkevious Shabazz:

I take it this is related to the Fast Product comp rotting in me basement?
Avatar    Wed. 4/24/13 11:11pm Holly in NC:

@Pete - BYE, Milford was pretty much split 50 Yankees, 40 Red Sox, 10 Mets. I am personally a Yankee fan (Thanks, Dad!) as well as a New Englander. Also thanks to Dad I root for Giants not Pats or Jets. No one I knew cared about basketball (severe culture shock coming to NC). Whalers of course!
Avatar    Wed. 4/24/13 11:11pm Holly in NC:

@Stevel, take the dog out.

Ah, yes, Scott Muni. Sorry, been a few years.

Avatar    Wed. 4/24/13 11:15pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

Holly -- I am a UMass 2nd gen, only left there by circumstance and not exactly choice. The biggest Giants fans I've known (growing up in NJ) were pre-Pats New Englanders from when the Giants were the New England team. I still love that there were people who hung onto their identity after the AFL/NFL tried to replace it.
Avatar    Wed. 4/24/13 11:15pm Holly in NC:

I do love Durham. Durham is a great, great place.
And my subprime mortgage payment for 2BR house in 2013 is still less than rent I was paying for 1BR apt in Northampton in 1990.

AZ, [gasping -- breathless] Where do I get a Tarkus Cake?!?!

I so love the new ticket bumper, EFD.
Avatar    Wed. 4/24/13 11:20pm Holly in NC:

But regardless of my deep & sincere love of Durham I hope end my days in either the Pioneer Valley or SE Rhode Island because I am, indeed a damn Yankee.
