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.

Hello efd! Hello everyone!

Greetings Richard!

Alex, I forgot we're rivals for a couple of days. Keep me posted!
Avatar    Wed. 4/16/14 9:07pm Alex of Chicago:

I wouldn't call it a rivalry. And I don't get to worked up over winning or losing. I figured you might like some updates.
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 9:08pm Holly in NC:

Gotta be ballsy to cover this...
Avatar    Wed. 4/16/14 9:08pm Loretta:

Hi all ~
Avatar    Wed. 4/16/14 9:10pm Peteski:

@HiNC I heard the original (eddie floyd?) in a trailer recently. Oh boy. Nothing is sacred.
  Wed. 4/16/14 9:11pm Eddy in Australia:

Hi EFD, Hi Holly - it's been a while.
I finally picked up the Eddie Floyd/Stax 7" of Big Bird at a record fair just the other day.
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 9:13pm Tome:

good evening EFD and all nice start to a chilly Wed evening indeed .. sizzling even !
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 9:14pm efd:

Hey Eddy, nice to see you again! Hope all's been well.

Howdy Peteski, Holly, Loretta, Tome and all lurkers! Thanks for tuning in!

Alex, I'll happily accept your updates in the friendly spirit in which they were intended.
Avatar    Wed. 4/16/14 9:14pm Andrew Fetter:

Hello all! Listening live tonight after coaching soccer practice. Sounding great so far!
  Wed. 4/16/14 9:15pm Eddy in Australia:

BTW: Nice segue into Weller - assuming that was a nod to the Jam's cover of Big Bird?
Avatar    Wed. 4/16/14 9:18pm Alex of Chicago:

I bought my first Burger cassette this week now that I have a tape deck again. So that's done.
Avatar    Wed. 4/16/14 9:23pm acid casualty:

Who thought cassettes would be back? Never stopped listening to them, tho. Great for the vehicle.
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 9:28pm mariano:

@acid casualty: Everything's going to come back. The next craze will probably be really degraded mp3s from the early Napster days. Reminds me of when Mad TV did a skit parodying the VH1 I Love the 80s-type shows, called I Love 5 Minutes Ago.
Avatar    Wed. 4/16/14 9:28pm Andrew Fetter:

The CD player in my previous vehicle stopped working a while before I got rid of it, but the tape deck still worked. Instead of going to the trouble of taping CDs to play in my car, I would wander though Goodwill finding odd stuff to listen to for my work commute. Relived a lot of previous music phases during that time. My current vehicle doesn't have a tape deck, and I was actually kind of disappointed when I noticed that.
Avatar    Wed. 4/16/14 9:28pm Alex of Chicago:

I just wanted to digitize some 15-20 year old tapes. Most of them still sound great.
  Wed. 4/16/14 9:30pm Eddy in Australia:

@Acid Casualty: For some strange reason, cassettes quite popular down here these days, with the likes of Anti-Fade Records, home of Ausmuteants, etc.
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 9:33pm Holly in NC:

@mariano - you just made me laugh! So many of my Napster/Audiogalaxy /Kazaaa era files are at ridiculous <128k bit rates, but they seemed so wonderful at the time....
  Wed. 4/16/14 9:37pm Patro:

I'm in the middle of "What you want is in the Limo." Great read so far. Thanks for the recommendation, EFD.
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 9:40pm Holly in NC:

Lenz is good.
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 9:40pm efd:

excellent Patro, glad you're enjoying it!
  Wed. 4/16/14 9:44pm Eddy in Australia:

@Alex: I've recently unearthed my old tapes (circa 1980-1990) and they sound fine, too.
@EFD: Probably not a coincidence about Sunflower/Big Bird. In his last Weller book, Paolo Hewitt detailed many of those - how you say? - "uncanny similarities"!
  Wed. 4/16/14 9:48pm EL:

The show is making my day as usual. :)
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 9:48pm Holly in NC:

@Eddy in Australia - A very belated hello! I'm a little addled at the moment, sorry.
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 9:49pm Stevel:

Royal Headache is in my top 1/3 band names. Great stuff too.
Avatar    Wed. 4/16/14 9:49pm Alex of Chicago:

@Eddy I recently got Ruined fortune and Ausmuteants albums. Glad their coming over here. Obviously, more research is in order.
  Wed. 4/16/14 9:50pm EL:

The Thermals. I still love this.
Avatar    Wed. 4/16/14 9:50pm Alex of Chicago:

Grammer is not my thing.

I clicky-starred Violent Past. Thanks Justin, if you're lurking!
  Wed. 4/16/14 9:59pm Toddophonic:

Driving earlier...I know I am behind, but Liverpool Echo and Rick & Sandy were a great 1-2 punch! Maybe you can lend some of that punch to your beloved Sawx.
  Wed. 4/16/14 10:00pm Eddy in Australia:

@Alex: Check out the Anti-Fade label (run by Billy from Ausmuteants); it has a good strike rate. Maybe EFD has the latest Hierophants 7" (Nothing Neu) in the new releases box?
Avatar    Wed. 4/16/14 10:00pm Fuzzy:

Ghee Whiz and Howdy y'all!
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 10:00pm Holly in NC:

I'm waving a spoonful of coconut oil at Uncle Michael.
Avatar    Wed. 4/16/14 10:01pm Uncle Michael:

We're all getting lubricated!
Avatar    Wed. 4/16/14 10:01pm Alex of Chicago:

Still 1-1 in Chicago. But Danks is around 100 pitches already. I think Evan's Sox are going to take this one. We don't have a very good bullpen.
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 10:04pm efd:

We'll see, Alex - as T-o-T points out, the Sox don't have a very good offense at the moment!
  Wed. 4/16/14 10:06pm herb.nyc:

Pronounciation problems. EFD? When in doubt, just say IDINA MENZEL. And i too am loving the MWalker LIMO bk (i wonder, nyc has Book Expo end of may. Will MW be there, or Holly G-W of Alex Chilton bio?)
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 10:12pm efd:

additional hour 2 greetings to mariano, Andrew, acid c., EL, Steve L, Uncle Michael, Fuzzy, herb and all new lurkers!
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 10:14pm Holly in NC:

Hey, those of you who know DJ Noah Uman from the late lamented Coffeebreak for Heroes & Villains (that used to air right after efd), just look at what he's been up to! Damn huge!

Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 10:20pm efd:

Hey, I remember that guy! :)

I saw that earlier, Holly, very cool!
Avatar    Wed. 4/16/14 10:24pm Alex of Chicago:

Alexei goes yahd. All about Cubans up in here. 3-1, Chicago. Saving the Illmatic retrospective until later.
  Wed. 4/16/14 10:25pm herb.nyc:

Since someone mentioned CASSETTES, i visited parental units today and found a TDK D90 box, w red orange stripes around it (kinda Houston Astros-y). Plus, i posted on a diff commentbd that back in the 80s, i took a D60 but put 120mins of music
  Wed. 4/16/14 10:27pm Eddy in Australia:

@Holly: Howdy! I wonder if Noah is in the Dust & Grooves book coming out on RSD? Their shoot with him was great.
@EFD: I think Liars have been based in LA (or is it Berlin?) for a while now.
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 10:28pm efd:

@Eddy I kind of figured that much (and maybe had heard that a while ago, hence my doubt) -thanks!
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 10:31pm Holly in NC:

@Eddy - I did NOT know that Noah did a session w Eilon! I've got to check that out (after efd's show, of course) Thank you!

My friend Larry Grogan is in the Dust & Grooves book. He's doing a set somewhere for the record store day/book release thing, I believe.

My snowden post lost this - does Dave Emory dislike Snowden?
Avatar    Wed. 4/16/14 10:43pm Uncle Michael:

I only know him online but for years and years. And his copy of the Nilsson bio is sitting here on my bedside table. He's a great dude.
  Wed. 4/16/14 10:44pm herb.nyc:

  Wed. 4/16/14 10:48pm herb.nyc:

@coeca.. Then play tape ONE channel at a time
Avatar    Wed. 4/16/14 10:50pm Ike:

There was something really amazing that sounded sort of gothic and ominous in the next-to-last set, not far before Gap Dream. I am guessing that was Liars?
Avatar    Wed. 4/16/14 10:50pm Andrew Fetter:

Love this record so much already.
Avatar    Wed. 4/16/14 10:51pm coelacanth:

- so 4 mono tracks. . . more bang for your buck!
Avatar Wed. 4/16/14 10:52pm efd:

Andrew, yes, me too! Can't wait for my copy to arrive!

Ike, yes, most likely that was Liars.
