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.

Good evening.

HEY, Spooner! Madison, Represent! Great band from my past.
  Wed. 8/21/13 9:24pm PB:

Hey efd, what can you tell us about slussenanalys.
  Wed. 8/21/13 9:25pm Richard from Venezuela:

Hello Evan and all the listeners.
Avatar Wed. 8/21/13 9:26pm Stevel:

Spooner is chock full of rock trivia. Butch Vig, their current gig....
  Wed. 8/21/13 9:29pm Joe B:

love that Dean Carter cut
  Wed. 8/21/13 9:31pm PB:

Garbage was.
Avatar Wed. 8/21/13 9:31pm Stevel:

Good for you, on Firetown!

My wife photographed Vig when he opened his recording studio.
Avatar Wed. 8/21/13 9:38pm Irwin:

Evan "Disco" Davies has a nice ring to it.
Avatar Wed. 8/21/13 9:42pm efd:

I can work with that.
  Wed. 8/21/13 9:43pm Frisko Kid:

Evan, great to hear your show again! I haven't worked a Wednesday night in ages. Still awesome, as always. Rock on!
Avatar Wed. 8/21/13 9:48pm efd:

hey Frisko Kid! Sorry you're working on a Wednesday night, but happy that you're listening!
Avatar Wed. 8/21/13 9:56pm G:

Still working, too, funfun :(
Avatar Wed. 8/21/13 9:57pm Holly in NC:

Yay Eastlink! Hi EFD and all other friends. EFD - I had no idea (or forgot) that you're an above-ground Nome King re eggs! I LOVE eggs. Currently I'm caring for 6 chickens, and you know what that means - super fresh eggs every day. I am in heaven, eggs eggs eggs ;-)
Avatar Wed. 8/21/13 9:59pm davex:

Still procrastinating, myself.
Avatar Wed. 8/21/13 10:05pm efd:

I'm happy to provide the soundtrack for either procrastination or productivity, as the listener sees fit.
Avatar Wed. 8/21/13 10:10pm fleep:

If digestion counts as productivity, I'm there.
Avatar Wed. 8/21/13 10:16pm Irwin:

That might be the greatest recording Barrence has ever done. Which means he's topped all his previous great recordings. Astounding vocal.
Avatar Wed. 8/21/13 10:29pm Stevel:

"Love Bombing"! Did these guys open for Spinal Tap?
Avatar Wed. 8/21/13 10:30pm G:

they were huge in norway. :-)
  Wed. 8/21/13 10:32pm KP:

Nomads, pretty cool.
Avatar Wed. 8/21/13 10:32pm G:

i just read the yankees are 8-2 for the last ten, and 10 out of their last 13. WTF? they must have got out from under the whamma jamma while i wasn't paying attention.
Avatar Wed. 8/21/13 10:34pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- the eponymous FreeFall track they've been playing has pleased this Wh♂fan
- 'lovebombing' adds an AC⚡DC angle - or
something
...like the former better, but this Rawks - silly words or no...
  Wed. 8/21/13 10:35pm Joe B:

Nomads one of the best live shows!
Avatar Wed. 8/21/13 10:36pm Stevel:

Yo. Joe B!

Silly words rock harder than most.
  Wed. 8/21/13 10:38pm KP:

They sound it, the Nomads.
  Wed. 8/21/13 10:40pm Lonely Planet Boy:

Loved the damper down double-play; also the bastard's "job in town" smokes!
  Wed. 8/21/13 10:48pm Dee Claw:

EFD, It sounds so good and also drowns out the yowling neighbors. Thanks for including Persian Claws!
Avatar Wed. 8/21/13 10:51pm Holly in NC:

Greetings, Dee Claw! Love your lp - are you ever going to release a digital version?
Avatar Wed. 8/21/13 10:53pm efd:

My pleasure, Dee!

G, it's definitely helped that the Yankees have been playing the lousy Blue Jays. They seem to be affected by kryptonite whenever they're in Yankee Stadium.
Avatar Wed. 8/21/13 10:55pm G:

yeah, i read toronto has lost 12 in a row in yankee stadium now. -- and i don't suppose the dempster incident hurt the yankee "feisty factor" either...
  Wed. 8/21/13 10:55pm Dee Claw:

Hello, Holly and thanks! We will probably re-release a digital version once the record sells out. There were only 300 copies made, so we hope it won't be too long :)
Avatar Wed. 8/21/13 10:58pm Holly in NC:

@Dee - Good news, thank you! My turntable currently not working :-(
Avatar Wed. 8/21/13 10:58pm efd:

The Dempster thing _really_ pissed me off. Total bullshit move.
Avatar Wed. 8/21/13 11:03pm G:

that kind of thing usually backfires, beyond just the ethical issue. it seems to have done in that case.
Avatar Wed. 8/21/13 11:06pm Alex of Chicago:

Heya everyone. @efd I got the New York Rocker issues and they look great. I'll be framing some and putting them up. Thanks again.
Avatar Wed. 8/21/13 11:06pm G:

so daft punk is prince down the tubes? did i get that right? :p
Avatar Wed. 8/21/13 11:08pm Camel:

I'm sleepy...
Avatar Wed. 8/21/13 11:16pm kevin g:

Wonderful show as always!

Cannot wait for Superchunk in September!
  Wed. 8/21/13 11:16pm Jonny Gomes:

Yeah bro!
Avatar Wed. 8/21/13 11:24pm Holly in NC:

Oh, Faye.
Avatar Wed. 8/21/13 11:28pm efd:

:(
Avatar Wed. 8/21/13 11:30pm Alex of Chicago:

What?
Avatar Wed. 8/21/13 11:32pm efd:

I was :(-ing in sympathy with Holly over the recent passing of Faye Hunter.
Avatar Wed. 8/21/13 11:34pm efd:

@Alex, Glad you're enjoying the NY Rockers! Thanks for pledging!
Avatar Wed. 8/21/13 11:35pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...'quilla' sounds like the soundtrack to something great...
Avatar Wed. 8/21/13 11:38pm efd:

yeah, it's pretty cool! Rare that I'll like something more atmospheric than hooky, but there you are.
Avatar Wed. 8/21/13 11:39pm Danne D:

Hi EFD :)
Hi Funk Fans :)

My sympathies Holly :(
Avatar Wed. 8/21/13 11:40pm Danne D:

Avatar Wed. 8/21/13 11:45pm Holly in NC:

Hi Danne!
All sympathy s/b directed to efd - I only kno/ew Ms. Hunter through her work.

@Danne D:
Long time no see!
We went to the Canberra Deep Space Communication Control on the weekend in costume and saw the dish that received the first pictures from the Moon Walk.

montibus communitas = "in the mountains community" (Latin)
Avatar Wed. 8/21/13 11:50pm efd:

thanks G! And hi Elwyn!
Avatar Wed. 8/21/13 11:51pm Danne D:

Cool Elwyn :) I plan to put your prize CD in my car this week to play it :)

sympathies all around (now that I get the reasons why)
Avatar Wed. 8/21/13 11:54pm Spatulator (formerly elwyn5150):

Hi Evan! Great to be listening to you today. Been a shyte day: missed training this morning to sleep in. Found out that a courier delivered my new headphones to a complete stranger who has kept them.


@Danne: I've forgotten about that CD! I got my swag last week but have been so busy that I have only played with the night light and worn the WFMU hoodie.
Avatar Wed. 8/21/13 11:58pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Love this Program !
...not sure if enuff to hang for three hours of Disco next week

Thanks for a great show EFD :)
Avatar Thu. 8/22/13 12:00am Alex of Chicago:

Was nice. I'm a sucker for good pedal steel for some reason.
