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 February 11, 2015: LES SANS CULOTTES live in the studio!

Listen to this show: | Add or read comments

It's said that French is the language of love, so why not spend the Wednesday night before Valentine's Day with the plausibly French rock et rollers Les Sans Culottes? They'll be bringing their melange formidable of Dutronc, Duchamp and Dubonnet to the WFMU studios on Wednesday February 11 at 9pm, so be sure to tune in for some faux français fun with Brooklyn's enfants terrible de la musique! You can also catch them live at the Rock Shop in Brooklyn on Friday February 27 avec les Zambonis, and their latest album, The Gods Have Thirst, is out now on the band's own Disque Escargo-go label.

Put on your best beret, tear off a piece of baguette, and enjoy this très spécial soirée.

Well EFD, this is the first time I've heard a song on your show that I've also heard on one of the stations where I work. It's a bit shocking to me.

I just play my numbers with "Rico" at the laundromat, same goal though...

that was aaaaaaaaages ago, Carmichael!

goodnight Danne D!
  Wed. 2/11/15 11:25pm Dean:

Can somebody explain Powerball to me? Do you buy a ticket? Choose numbers? Or are they automatically assigned (which would render moot my alchemical calculations)?

Also, last night during Wm. Berger's show I contacted the Chicago metal band GIDIM, whose cassette was played, to find out if "they" would be playing in March while I'm in town. Props to the "band," which is just one guy, Jim, for getting back to me today.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/11/15 11:32pm efd:

I am going to let someone who isn't doing a radio show answer that Powerball question.
  Wed. 2/11/15 11:33pm Dean:

No offense, but I'd prefer to hear from regular Powerball winners, anyway.
  Wed. 2/11/15 11:37pm Carmichael:

You can do either, Dean. I have "favorite" numbers, not confused with LUCKY numbers. Or you can play the random numbers they give you. Either way, you'll end up crying in the fetal position.
  Wed. 2/11/15 11:38pm Dean:

And your a regular winner, Carmichael?
  Wed. 2/11/15 11:39pm Dean:

My lucky numbers would be 666 13 13 666 666 and 13.
  Wed. 2/11/15 11:39pm Carmichael:

See: "crying in the fetal position".
  Wed. 2/11/15 11:39pm Dean:

I was enjoying this so much that I just let it flow into the next track, which actually sounds very similar to the track I started out with.
