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.

Whoa… What just happened?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/18/17 9:05pm efd:

the right channel on TT3 was very low and this is a long-ish song so I restarted it but I didn't want to come on mic so I just faded up my music bed for a few seconds while I re-cued the record.
  Wed. 1/18/17 9:05pm asheville jon:

Good evening!
No mistaking the oblivion express funky groove sound

Perfect, EFD!
Avatar    Wed. 1/18/17 9:07pm JakeGould:

Okay.
  Wed. 1/18/17 9:08pm Michael from the Left Coast:

Brian Augur! Someone I know went to see him the other night (has two of his children playing in the band now)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/18/17 9:09pm efd:

there's usually a good reason for most things that happen on this show.
  Wed. 1/18/17 9:09pm Stevel:

I'm a touch late, but up to date on an already exciting show!
  Wed. 1/18/17 9:11pm Marc15:

New app is great
  Wed. 1/18/17 9:12pm Stevel:

This dbs song is very familiar to me. What a great guitar riff.

This had better be the full 11-minute version of "Time."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/18/17 9:17pm efd:

I would play nothing less, Irwin!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/18/17 9:17pm efd:

11:57, I believe, according to my handwritten note on the LP at least.

Avatar    Wed. 1/18/17 9:18pm Irwin:

Drums: Brian Keenan (1943–1985). Follow his amazing patterns and fills. And ignore the friggin' cowbell.
  Wed. 1/18/17 9:18pm Stevel:

Irwin's vigilance, if unnecessary, is greatly appreciated.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/18/17 9:19pm Figgsrock:

So glad this is the lp version.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/18/17 9:19pm efd:

just the accents alone are killer.
  Wed. 1/18/17 9:20pm Stevel:

Very difficult to ignore the cb, but will endeavor.
  Wed. 1/18/17 9:21pm Michael from the Left Coast:

Brian Keenan was tremendous!
  Wed. 1/18/17 9:25pm Bob Ham:

No need for me to ever do LSD now that I've heard this.
  Wed. 1/18/17 9:26pm greyhoos:

Full length album version, yes!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/18/17 9:29pm Uncle Michael:

Yeah, I don't need to try that LSD stuff umm...either.
  Wed. 1/18/17 9:30pm Bob Ham:

Me?

Hey EFD!

@Bob I was including you in that 4-count, yes.
Avatar Wed. 1/18/17 9:34pm Loretta:

hi Evan..... I absolutely love that chambers brothers track! wow takes me back to the LSD days.
& when I saw the title of this set it reminded me of the opening line in the Teenage Lust show: 'ready or not here comes lust'!!!!!

Bassists tend to like me… :/
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/18/17 9:36pm Uncle Michael:

Ronald and Ernie Isley are among the best singers and guitar players (respectively) to ever stride the earth.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/18/17 9:46pm Uncle Michael:

Did I just listen to the Chambers Brothers and Post about the Isley Brothers? Yes, yes I did.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/18/17 9:47pm efd:

as long as you know what you're doing, UM.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/18/17 9:47pm Uncle Michael:

I know I'm embarrassing myself!
  Wed. 1/18/17 9:47pm Michael from the Left Coast:

UM, that cowbell is getting to you
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/18/17 9:49pm Uncle Michael:

Oak Park's finest!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/18/17 9:51pm Uncle Michael:

Are there any songs about buildings or food?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/18/17 9:54pm Uncle Michael:

Confirmed: My copy of the Freakbeat Scene "Wooden Spoon" sounds good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/18/17 9:55pm efd:

yeah that version i played just sounded muddy and poorly transferred to me.
  Wed. 1/18/17 9:56pm herb.nyc:

was John Moen in Dharma Bums, mid80s band?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/18/17 9:57pm Uncle Michael:

I guess I first heard Alejandro in Rank and File.

Hey EFD, Josh Kantor is coming down for at least one of those Minus 5 gigs.

@Figgsrock, going to the Boston Calling shows in May?
  Wed. 1/18/17 10:01pm mb:

I lost my Mink DeVille records, but now I'm wondering if I filed them under D?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/18/17 10:04pm efd:

could be, mb!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/18/17 10:05pm Figgsrock:

@Uncle Michael: no, I don't see any reason to go to a fest when I just want to see Buffalo Tom.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/18/17 10:06pm Uncle Michael:

It's a shame I'm not likely to make it to any of their dates next year after the record comes out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/18/17 10:12pm Scraps:

hey pezband again!
  Wed. 1/18/17 10:14pm Michael from the Left Coast:

Steve Mack knows how to do it--always leave them wanting more
  Wed. 1/18/17 10:15pm Kat in Chicago:

Not enough songs about craft supplies, I always say. Too bad that one cut off :(
  Wed. 1/18/17 10:15pm peter:

fine selection of tunes....i especially liked hearing Alejandro Escovedo
well...and the Chambers Bros. ....and Mink
Avatar    Wed. 1/18/17 10:15pm chris_in_space:

For life's technical difficulties, I always keep a copy of Big Dipper's "All Going Out Together" at the ready, just in case.
Avatar    Wed. 1/18/17 10:17pm geezerette:

Not ready!!!...but,DAMN this is a great record!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/18/17 10:17pm efd:

alright, I think I've got the whole Stag song now.
  Wed. 1/18/17 10:18pm Hoboken Jack:

Maybe Zaremba somehow boobytrapped that "Bedazzler" file.
  Wed. 1/18/17 10:19pm Hoboken Jack:

But EFD and the Bedazzler cannot be denied!! Loving this song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/18/17 10:20pm efd:

always my pleasure to have you tuned in, Jack!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/18/17 10:21pm efd:

(alla the resta youse too, of course... but especially Jack)
  Wed. 1/18/17 10:21pm peter:

so, this time it worked.....was a clip from this song used for an ad?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/18/17 10:21pm Uncle Michael:

I really, really, really, really, really, really, really, like the Bedazzler!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/18/17 10:23pm Uncle Michael:

Denim Child is certified WFMU gold. It's a hit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/18/17 10:24pm efd:

@peter not sure if that song is in an ad but I don't think so?
  Wed. 1/18/17 10:25pm Kat in Chicago:

And now, a song about fabric. It's like Evan got a sponsorship from Jo-Ann's.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/18/17 10:26pm efd:

hahaah Kat!
  Wed. 1/18/17 10:26pm Kat in Chicago:

Got any songs about yarn?

Glue fits the theme too

Personality Crisis.....I Wanna Rock and Roll All Night....same music, for the most part, different lyrics

Wow...nice to hear BÖC. I wasn't familiar with that one at all.
  Wed. 1/18/17 11:00pm elsickdude:

shana falana-related to Lola Heatherton,baby?
  Wed. 1/18/17 11:00pm Kat in Chicago:

I love that one because of Patti

Bic Runga? Are you trying to kill me? I listen to you NJ freaks to avoid this stuff!

Ken's been playing Bic Runga a lot too

I wonder what year 'So Hard...' was exactly. Decca rep: 'Guitar groups are on their way out, Mr. Epstein.'
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/18/17 11:17pm efd:

ha! sorry about that, mcginniwa!
  Wed. 1/18/17 11:17pm mcginniwa in wellington, nz:

...from a freak in NZ

@RRN63 per the CD liner notes that song came out in ''64

Sometimes text really kills a joke. As does self-doubt.

More robot voices omg

Cheers efd. (It didn't take Decca long to mildly regret passing on The Beatles. George tipped them to The Stones...)
  Wed. 1/18/17 11:22pm eye in the sky:

Uh oh more robots!
  Wed. 1/18/17 11:25pm Michael from the Left Coast:

Cut Above the REst is probably overlooked because Brian Connolly's vocals were wiped and he had left the band when the album was released
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/18/17 11:33pm efd:

ah, that would explain it! and also no doubt relates to the lack of hits as well.
Avatar Wed. 1/18/17 11:34pm Ilya from Saratov:

Hello all! Beautiful dense sound!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/18/17 11:37pm efd:

Hello Ilya! Glad you're enjoying it!
  Wed. 1/18/17 11:47pm mcginniwa in wellington, nz:

Apologies for killing the conversation. To be clear, I love the show and WFMU is ace.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/18/17 11:49pm efd:

no offense taken, mcginniwa! And it usually quiets down around this time anyway as the locals drift off to sleep. I'm not holding you responsible. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/18/17 11:50pm Kat in Chicago:

No worries mcginniwa! I expect Ms. Runga's music is more ubiquitous there than here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/18/17 11:52pm Kat in Chicago:

and Evan's right, it's getting close to many of our bedtimes :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/18/17 11:53pm Kat in Chicago:

I think it's awesome that we have Russia and NZ in the house
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/18/17 11:54pm efd:
