Listener comments!

  Mon. 12/10/07 11:21pm dave:

i can't imagine i'd have ever thought the line "there's been too many bungalows built for my liking" could really RAWK. it just goes to show you.
  Mon. 12/10/07 11:30pm efd:

I have to admit, until I saw that Dancing Did single at the last WFMU Record Fair I didn't even realize they had any other records out besides the great "Lost Platoon" on Stiff, which I've played often on my Mayhem shows.
I think it's funny that whoever wrote their Wikipedia entry described them as "British Goth Folk Rock"
  Mon. 12/10/07 11:37pm dave:

i can see the "folk" part, but i'm not too sure about the "goth" part. they seem too ANGRY about the fact that people are covering england's green and pleasant shore with single-family ranch-styles to be really called goth.
  Tue. 12/11/07 12:05am Randy in NC:

Watch the SNL TV Funhouse cartoon Maraka. A take off on Dora the Explorer. She calls the cat on it Mi--ens dropping the T's just as you describe.
  Tue. 12/11/07 12:17am efd:

MI--ens -- exactly! I haven't seen that cartoon, but I'll have to chec k it out. I first heard that from a woman I was working with years ago who was from Middletown NJ and kept talking about her new ki--en, so that's why I associate it with that area, rightly or wrongly.
  Tue. 12/11/07 1:23am Ike:

Nice old-school cut!
  Tue. 12/11/07 1:26am dave:

two words for the disco dance party:


take this one, for instance:
  Tue. 12/11/07 1:28am LAKE ARROWHEAD:

  Tue. 12/11/07 1:37am efd:

whoa, look at all these comments all of a sudden!
@ike, glad you liked Stetsasonic!
@Dave, that looks like a possibility, although it would be a pretty big chunk of my budget.
@arrowhead - be careful what you wish for!
  Tue. 12/11/07 1:41am LAKE ARROWHEAD:

I request 5 minute EFD profile of the religious nutcases on the Red Sox or MLB in general
  Tue. 12/11/07 1:51am efd:

heh, maybe next week!
  Tue. 12/11/07 9:06am Mr Wibbly:
