I'd seen my share of shows at Loeb, but don't recall why I didn't attend that one. It wasn't because of a lack of interest, as I owned and loved the Stiff 45. Probably had to choose between the show and a veggie burger at Dojo.
  Wed. 5/31/17 9:49pm herb.nyc:

Fun show! And Loeb has become Kimmel Student Center. A wnyu dj learned me of students saying Bob's Library and not Bobst. I used to "hang around" those 2 places despite not being a student.

Huh. How often is Mykel Board mentioned on this or any comment board?

Ok, so it's not just me who noticed that version of We Got The Beat sounded different!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/31/17 9:57pm Gaylord Fields:

And the Escher-esque so-called suicide-proof tile on the Bobst floor was clearly an urban legend (as it didn't deter jumpers at all, sadly).
Avatar Wed. 5/31/17 9:59pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Someone needs to do a show comprised of great singles that were wrecked by record company meddling on subsequent versions, like We Got the Beat, X's White Girl and Uncertain Smile.

Oh boy. That hits the spot Evan.

Hi EFD. Thank you for the memories. Used to listen to you on WNYU when I was in high school. Great to hear Polyrock, Blue Orchids et al again. I've a sudden urge to hear Six by the Neats. Did you happen to bring that along in your grab bag?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/31/17 10:10pm efd:

thanks Robert, I'm sure you're looking forward to finishing college soon. :D
will try to get the Neats on for you.
  Wed. 5/31/17 10:11pm Stevel:

Jesus. What a show I've been missing. In the day, I would have called much of this music "Punk". Then again, I lived in Denver. We were not up on the cutting edge.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/31/17 10:11pm efd:

much of this music WAS called punk at the time, Stevel!

This is the best show thnx
  Wed. 5/31/17 10:17pm Stevel:

Always a surprise in the New Wave bin. I'd successfully buy albums based entirely on the cover. The Clash/Give 'me Enough Rope, Stranglers/Black and White, T Heads/More Songs..., Not so much 80s, I know, but so much originality was available, seemingly via one scene.

Thx EFD. If you can't dig up the Neats, I'd settle for Tribes by Soul. I think that was definitely a top 40 hit at the time. College?!!? That's a whole 'nother time with a whole bunch of other bands!
  Wed. 5/31/17 10:20pm Stevel:

Yes. Best keyboard solo.

Any Fall singles hanging around over there?
  Wed. 5/31/17 10:21pm Michael from the Left Coast:

and since (as I recall) you're not on the Wild Moose Party single, it wouldn't be self promotion to play the Cosmopolitans now would it?
  Wed. 5/31/17 10:24pm Robert:

Human League should be followed by Peace of Mind by the Swinging Laurels ...
  Wed. 5/31/17 10:28pm mike:

evan, play the flip of thr nervus rex single, I think it's called 'love affair'' I haven't heard it in decades and if I remember properly, it's great
  Wed. 5/31/17 10:29pm herb.nyc:

When I pass Kimmel, I still see a guard who was there in 80s! I think Bob's Library has Fales Collection, and I think a Riot Grrl (KHanna?)left memorabilia there. Wonder what else they have. / Wednesday sked unchanged? Ugh, that means Andy Breckman on 7SD? I joke, I adopted him. He's a nice Jewish boy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/31/17 10:29pm efd:

not a bad thought, Robert.
Michael - solid requests, but weirdly I never got around to picking up any Fall records. And I still feel a little funny about playing that Cosmopolitans single tbh, even though I don't play on it (and certainly don't stand to make any sort of gain from airing it in any case). It's not even in my 70s/80s boxes in fact, I should move it in there.
  Wed. 5/31/17 10:30pm bob:

John cale produced a song called I'm afraid of the Russians. Do you have that? Also Johnny thunders produced justin trouble ponytsil which would also be great to hear. Do you know a sibgle called baby baby that had a picture label and no other info? A porky prime cut was in the matrix. Great show!

A few years ago, The (English) Beat and the (Paul Collins) Beat — each of which ca. 1980 was forced to affix the respective qualifiers to their identical band names — played together under the tour name "Two Beats Hearting as One"!

@Stevel in fact my love for that dB's record is FACILITATED by the drumming. Will Rigby is the best.

@A.T.F.: I couldn't tell you where Pat Duncan is right this second, but a couple of hours ago he was most likely at Citi Field.

Every time I hear this song I'm amazed at how little the sounds of the NYC subways have changed since 1979.

Just wanted to know if he was still into the music he used to play as most peoples music tastes mature...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/31/17 11:24pm Gaylord Fields:

@Stevel: It reads as if you don't agree with Will Rigby's drumming om "Black and White," an opinion that honestly leaves me nonplussed. I'm with efd: He's the best.
  Wed. 5/31/17 11:26pm A.T.F.:

Was that the senders from nyc???
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/31/17 11:27pm Gaylord Fields:

I ran into Pat D. a few times last year at the aforementioned ballpark. Rest assured he's still the godfather of punk.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/31/17 11:27pm efd:

sure enough, A.T.F.

I was feeling that this party needed some Clash, nice one @EFD
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/31/17 11:28pm efd:

@Gaylord knowing Stevel I think he was doing that thing where you understate a point to make it more emphatic. I believe he's on board with Will Rigby.

weird to recall how dangerously radical this album was when it was released.
  Wed. 5/31/17 11:29pm A.T.F.:

Went to high school with the senders....they where a ugly bunch....Glad pats still in the game....OI!...

Late to the surprise party tonight. I need cheering up so I'll be listening again on the archives. Some belated comments ...
@JakeGould: Congrats on the first covfefe reference of the night!
@EFD: Agreed on Tina Turner. There are some other lost gems on that BEF album/box set. Also, if you can play The Jam twice in a month, you can play Teardrop Explodes again!
@Fleep: Rodney on the ROQ ends his long reign this weekend.
@Stevel: We had a New Wave bin at my local suburban record shop. If I'd bought every album in it, I'd be cashed up now, i.e. many subsequent rarities.
@herb.nyc: I think the Richard Hell collection is at Fales too.

Hey, Evan!

Ooops, I did it again. Long comment is from me. Sorry, not all there today.

Great stuff EFD.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/31/17 11:32pm coelacanth∅:

it's not all that long ago that Pat stopped doing his show, and he was already old enough that it was clear his tastes wouldn't become closed-minded. (or "mature", as some might say)

This should have been a live remote from Hitsville in Passaic, New Jersey.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/31/17 11:36pm efd:

hey Eddy! Fair point re Teardrop, but not sure if I'll be able to squeeze them in at this point. Sorry you need some cheering up but hope this show/archive will help!

ODW was what 80s street comedian Albert Owens had in mind when he described this music as "a bunch of guys standing around playing video games."

@efd: @Stevel: Well, then I was doing a similar thing where I extol someone's greatness because I actually think they're terrible. :)

My brain hurts from the memory blast....whats left of it....

A couple times efd has positively id'd for me earworms I've had for 35 years or something.

@T-O-P Todd: Hitsville is one of the best names ever for a club. My friend had a hot sauce store in Melbourne called Hotsville.

For me, and those of a certain age and a certain region, this is a "WPIX FM 102" party!

big tears came out on "taking liberties" in 1980

Is that a bad thing for elvis????
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/31/17 11:54pm efd:

ah, right coel! I forgot about that record!
Avatar    Wed. 5/31/17 11:55pm Hoboken Jack:

I believe "Big Tears" first LP appearance was on the Taking Liberties compilation. At least, that's where I first heard it.
  Wed. 5/31/17 11:55pm A.T.F.:

most good musicians have a touch of crazy....
  Wed. 5/31/17 11:55pm Tommy Jack Haynes:

"Taking Liberties" is quite excellent ..no filler....which is par for the course with EC

efd: Several times I flashed back to the early 80s, and I can't be the only one here who did. Thank you for such a pleasant surprise!
