Great rock and roll tune that, D. Edmunds.
Avatar Wed. 2/21/18 9:07pm JakeGould:

This sounds cool, but “Beat My Drums” kinda sounds like “Rock rock rock… Rock and rock… Rock rock rock rock…”
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/21/18 9:11pm medson:

This sounds so good

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/21/18 9:24pm medson:

I needed these tunes after the day I had at work : )
  Wed. 2/21/18 9:26pm Ben London:

You got any DL Byron floating around up there?

Hello fellow listeners
  Wed. 2/21/18 9:41pm john:

Hey Evan! Always a good time for Rattlesnakes! PS Both the big box sets to date are aces.
  Wed. 2/21/18 9:41pm Eddy in Australia:

Hi Evan and all. Loving this Salad Boys track - heard it on Joe B's show the other day, too. Saw the band a few times late last year and they were great.
  Wed. 2/21/18 9:42pm Stevel:

I will definitely see Lloyd Cole next opportunity. Great performer. Thanks to his dj stint on Fed's show a couple years back, I saw him solo with guitar. Heard he shifted to keyboard.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/21/18 9:44pm efd:

it's still crazy to me that Lloyd Cole was on my show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/21/18 9:45pm efd:

Hey Eddy! I've brought that Salad Boys LP into the studio with me for the past few weeks, made a point of getting to it early this week!
  Wed. 2/21/18 9:45pm Stevel:

Hey, Eddy! How's stuff over there?
  Wed. 2/21/18 9:49pm Eddy in Australia:

@Stevel: All good here. Protomartyr have been in town (two excellent shows), and it's still warm so my moon and stars watermelons are growing well!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/21/18 9:52pm efd:

@Ben, if you're still out there: No D.L. Byron here tonight, but I believe there is some at home. Maybe next week?
  Wed. 2/21/18 9:52pm Stevel:

Summer sounds good to me, although winter has been very in and out this season. 70 f yesterday. 35 f today. Unusual patterns.
  Wed. 2/21/18 9:53pm x.:

wow, better than Siouxie? dude
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/21/18 9:58pm efd:

who said it was better than Siouxsie?
  Wed. 2/21/18 9:58pm Eddy in Australia:

@Stevel: 70 f in February? What global warming?!
  Wed. 2/21/18 10:00pm x.:

@efd me!!! that was great!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/21/18 10:02pm efd:

OH, got it! I thought you were being critical - my mistake, sorry.
  Wed. 2/21/18 10:03pm Eddy in Australia:

@EFD: Is that a new/different intro to TMS?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/21/18 10:05pm Jeff Moore:

This almost sounds like The Jazz Butcher singing about The Monochrome Set.

Which would be pretty fun, really.
  Wed. 2/21/18 10:06pm pp:

listening to the intro, said to myself that's the monochrome set. I presumed correct.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/21/18 10:06pm efd:

looks to be the original album version of that song...?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/21/18 10:07pm efd:

it's from this new 6-CD collection of Monochrome Set stuff
  Wed. 2/21/18 10:08pm Eddy in Australia:

I don't recall it being so long and Burundi-sounding. Maybe the single version is different?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/21/18 10:09pm efd:

I think that's the case! It caught me off guard as well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/21/18 10:09pm efd:

(I see what you did there, pp)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/21/18 10:17pm fleep:

Now I see why you all transfer to the boxcar studio this early - shakedown cruise.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/21/18 10:25pm efd:

@fleep that is exactly right.
Avatar Wed. 2/21/18 10:36pm Kat in Chicago:

oh hell yes
Avatar Wed. 2/21/18 10:37pm Slick Goldtooth:

listening to this just reminded me King Tuff's back making stuff
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/21/18 10:38pm efd:

ballsy move to cover this song but Ty Segall totally pulls it off
  Wed. 2/21/18 10:38pm pp:

do you think the original of this was the definition of funk?
Avatar Wed. 2/21/18 10:38pm Kat in Chicago:

agreed on both counts EFD
Avatar Wed. 2/21/18 10:39pm Parq:

Whoa, big evening for covers of songs from back in the day. This, and you played that Christine cover, and I was listening before to an Uncle Michael archive with Sisters of Mercy covering Emma.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/21/18 10:39pm jmd:

This is as rock-solid cover of any song as there ever will be. Perfect.
Avatar Wed. 2/21/18 10:40pm Kat in Chicago:

Yeah I'm mad that I missed Christine, gonna hit that archive tomorrow

Avatar Wed. 2/21/18 10:50pm Fuzzy:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/21/18 10:51pm efd:

@3500 I have no idea what you're talking about, and I'm going to remove your first comment because I don't want that word on my playlist.

Realplayer, oh dear. I remember emailing Station Manager Ken about some icky things that Realplayer did to my (eMachines with 2G HD, lol!) computer and being super impressed with his thoughtful and helpful response.

Avatar Wed. 2/21/18 11:38pm Andrew S:

no canadiana tonight but this reminds me of how gary numan kinda took nash the slash under his wing and touted him a bit. there are some good youtube videos with numan and nash the slash and iggy pop if they are still up
  Wed. 2/21/18 11:47pm trump:

fuck you my wall will be greater then China's
Avatar Wed. 2/21/18 11:48pm Kat in Chicago:

Nash the Slash kind of passed me by at the time, I should revisit.
  Wed. 2/21/18 11:52pm A squirrell:

if you feed me I'll just provide more of my retarded content....i'm hungry for more insane rock & roll
Avatar Wed. 2/21/18 11:53pm Andrew S:

the revisit may or not be rewarding, its pretty hit and miss but he had his moments and he had the bandage thing going. Gary Numan really took a shine to him, and there is a neat interview with him and iggy if its still out there. he didnt say much, iggy much more photogenic
