Listener comments!

  Tue. 9/9/08 11:06pm john:

These guys canadian? That's one weird-ass nasal accent.
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:07pm Sybil:

Well, this song is something else!
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:07pm Jessica:

Peter DeLuise, nee McNichol?
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:08pm Sybil:

Quebecquois I do believe
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:08pm efd:

Candian, mais oui! That would be one Lucien Francoeur on the vocals.
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:09pm efd:

points to Sybil for the band name pun.
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:09pm Rene:

Wow. Is aut'chose the name of the band or the song.

Oh blistering barnacles! It's Beth Ditto!!
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:10pm john:

Yeah, the singer sounded like one of our Neighbors To The North (TM). And welcome to the Tuesday Night French Club meeting. Sybil, I think it was your turn to bring croissants.
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:11pm Rene:

Beth I hear you calling but I can't come home right now.
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:12pm Sybil:

Merde, all I have is this poutine...
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:13pm Dom & Pete:

You've managed to bring us back together, Flag. We'll be eternally grateful. You're welcome to a meal at Dom's anytime!
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:13pm Jessica:

Gossip gives me whiplash.
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:14pm efd:

it's a hazard of listening to the efd show.

Is Peter McNichol related to Kristy and Jimmy?
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:14pm john:

Ooooh, poutine. Get all the basic food groups there. Got your grease, your starch, your fat. Oh, and gravy. That's four.
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:15pm Jessica:

He should be. Especially as Jimmy is who I imagined when I typed that. He does have the McNichol nose, come to think of it...
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:16pm ?:

F-k!! Today's show is making me so very happy!!
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:16pm efd:

thank you, mystery self-censoring commenter!
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:17pm Rene:

"Poutine" has to be the most lascivious sounding name for a food item EVER.
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:17pm efd:

Sybil, what happened with Papelbon tonight? I was trying to follow the game on yahoo while getting ready for the show... got all excited only to have it washed away minutes later.
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:18pm Rene:

oh you're welcome Evan. twas I that accidentally self-censored.
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:20pm Sybil:

Papelbon... I don't know. I got distracted for a moment, and then it was 5-4. I missed whatever happened.
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:20pm Jessica:

Department S = tasty! Reminds me of The Sturm Group (also Canadian. they sounded bigger than they looked: http://tinyurl.com/5b7mz2)
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:20pm john:

It may be a lascivious name, but visually it's sort of the equivalent of abstinence-only education.
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:22pm randy in NC:

I guess the American Breed was the reply to the British Invasion
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:23pm efd:

in keeping with my new nickname.
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:24pm john:

Now I'm looking for places in LA that serve poutine, dammit. Knew I should have had dinner before the show.
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:25pm eattothebeat:

The Rays made a deal with the devil.
That is what happened.
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:25pm Sybil:

They gave the devil his name back?

In other news, Yoyo got a win tonight.
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:27pm C:

that movie trailer tom played was insane. i seriously thought it was made up. maybe it makes more sense if you see the video along with it because tom didn't seem too bothered by it. not sure about imax, but definitely netflix on that one
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:28pm efd:

alright, hooray for Yoyo! Keeping the Braves out of the cellar.

Oh, that reminds me - who won the second Jays-Chisox game?
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:29pm john:

Jays sweep, took the second game 8-2
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:29pm Sybil:

Toronto 3-1
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:29pm Rene:

the gossip serves up the poutine
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:30pm efd:

awesome! so NY is 1 1/2 behind TOR now?

I guess I should go on mic already.
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:30pm Sybil:

and what John said.

I've really got to get some sleep one of these days.
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:31pm john:

Actually 2 ahead as of right now, but Junkees up 1-0 in the 5th.
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:33pm Sybil:

Speaking of the American Breed, am I the only person who didn't know this:

In celebration of the 2005 baseball World Championship of the Chicago White Sox, the American Breed issued a CD single entitled "Rock with the Sox."

(from Wikipedia)
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:37pm john:

Sybil, if it makes you feel any better, there are at least two of us who didn't know that.
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:38pm Laurie:

Disco fries > poutine

Actually, both are vomitecore. F'real.
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:38pm randy in NC:

I think the Bend Me Shape Me was circa 1966. The first album I ever got. To be followed by Happy Jack and WInchester Cathedral,,,, I might still have the original vinyl for these lying around somewhere.
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:39pm Erech o:

What is that playing underneath Evan?
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:42pm Droll:

Google can't find an image from the cover of Aut'chose. Unlike your description of the Lief Garret cover, my curiosity is piqued, not revulsed. Please take a picture with your cell phone and mail it to yourself and post that!
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:42pm efd:

John, make that three of us. (And thanks all for the baseball updates!)

Erech, it's a loop from "Saturday NIght Fever" by the Lordz of Brooklyn.
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:44pm Sybil:

Another Manny HR.

Be funny if Joe Torre gets to the World Series this year... in a poetic justice kind of way.
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:45pm efd:

droll, do an image search on yahoo for:
aut'chose cauchemar

the two rightmost images are the front + back covers
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:46pm randy in NC:

Sybil, that's why they hired him, no?
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:46pm Michael Ackerman:

Whoa--Thomas Function!
They missed their gig at SXSW you know because the drummer was arrested.
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:47pm efd:

I didn't know - details plz!
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:47pm john:

Hey, my pleasure. I'm actually being anti-social in my hotel tonight with baseball and the show.

Torre will have to get through the Mets and Fountain of Youth discoverer Carlos Delgado first. Hit two more today; fans who were screaming for his release in June are chanting MVP, MVP...
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:48pm efd:

nice to have you here live btw, Michael.
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:49pm Droll:

Whoa! Mutton chops! Curiosity satisfied -- one fewer life...

(Also looking forward to learning the punchline to a new drummer joke!)
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:52pm john:

I'm sure I'm missing something here, but there's little in this world I enjoy more than a good drummer joke. Except maybe a bad one.
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:53pm Michael Ackerman:

Thanks for the welcome EFD!
Nice to be here even if it's because I'm working late
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:58pm Michael Ackerman:

Have I missed the window for requests--
How 'bout some Secret Affair?
I second Don Cavalli as a top ten album for sure
  Tue. 9/9/08 11:59pm Michael Ackerman:

That's Everloving, not Everlasting (I represent them)
  Wed. 9/10/08 12:18am efd:

the request window never closes! that said, it's rarely open much more than a crack. :) I'm not sure what Secret Affair records are in the FMU library, and I didn't bring any with me tonight but I'll see what I can find.
  Wed. 9/10/08 12:23am efd:

John, I think the drummer joke comment was in reference to the Thomas Function drummer getting arrested.. which we (ahem) still don't know anything more about.
  Wed. 9/10/08 12:23am john:

wow, that z-trip track was aut'chose!
  Wed. 9/10/08 12:24am efd:

and by the way, what's up in that Angels/Yankees game??
  Wed. 9/10/08 12:25am john:

You don't want to know. But in case you really do, Junks up 6-1 in the 8th.
  Wed. 9/10/08 12:31am efd:

hmpf. who ended up pitching for Cali?
  Wed. 9/10/08 12:32am john:

Santana started, followed by a couple stiffs. Junks started one of their hordes of Quadruple-A players.
  Wed. 9/10/08 12:38am efd:

yeah, i saw that MFY pitcher in his relief appearance 4 or 5 days ago... seems like another in the long line of Yankee pitchers (Rasner, Karstens, Geise, Ponson) who have a few good outings before falling apart.
  Wed. 9/10/08 12:41am Michael Ackerman:

The drummer from the Thomas Function is driving drunk and he gets pulled over and has, if I recall the story, a gun and a bunch of pot in his car. So he gets arrested and afterwards in explaining what happened he says "it could happen to anybody!"
  Wed. 9/10/08 12:42am efd:

that *is* a good drummer joke!
  Wed. 9/10/08 12:47am Laurie:

During the Ruby Suns set at Pitchfork, one of the douchebags from Vampire Weekend came around the front of the stage in the photographer pit and was promptly shooed away by a security guard. I lol'd.
  Wed. 9/10/08 12:49am pete:

wooo hoo Go New Zealand!
  Wed. 9/10/08 12:50am Laurie:

Just to watch! I could see him behind the stage smoking a cigarette after he was publicly shamed.
  Wed. 9/10/08 12:52am C:

agree that the thomas function song was good, and after that drummer story i definitely want to check them out live.
  Wed. 9/10/08 12:53am Droll:

Michael, thanks for the story! All stories with a drummer involve intoxication and a punchline, but it never gets stale.
To be pedantic, I know lots of functioning addicts and I'm sure getting arrested qualifies as NOT functioning. The functioning ones show up.
  Wed. 9/10/08 12:56am Jim:

  Wed. 9/10/08 12:57am Sybil:

OMG Rocks in Your Head...
  Wed. 9/10/08 1:03am efd:

i know! They held on for quite a while, but i guess weren't able to to establish themselves after the move to Wmsbg.
  Wed. 9/10/08 1:06am efd:

C, glad you liked that song too.
  Wed. 9/10/08 1:14am Michael Ackerman:

Here's a punchline for you--I am a drummer
(aren't you too EFD?)
  Wed. 9/10/08 1:15am efd:

I am! And I enjoy a good drummer joke as much as the next guy.
  Wed. 9/10/08 1:15am Sybil:

me too!
  Wed. 9/10/08 1:16am C:

Yes! The OOOO. I really want to see them play next month but the ticket prices are really hard to justify (they are the best live band in the world though). There was this really strange ticketing system where you basically had to buy a fanclub package to get a decent seat too which were like $500 plus the $100+ for the ticket itself.
  Wed. 9/10/08 1:16am john:

zomg, I'm surrounded by drummers? Eek.
  Wed. 9/10/08 1:28am efd:

that's right! don't make any sudden movements, or... well... i don't know, but i'm sure there's a drummer joke in there somewhere.
  Wed. 9/10/08 1:29am Sybil:

And... the Dodgers win.
  Wed. 9/10/08 1:30am efd:

how far in front of ARI are they now?
  Wed. 9/10/08 1:32am C:

Oh yeah, thought you might appreciate this Evan. WBCN did an interview with HR of Bad Brains this afternoon that was pretty far out there. Don't think they're as on the ball with technology as FMU though, so don't think it's up yet.
  Wed. 9/10/08 1:32am Sybil:

2.5 games ahead. They just might pull this off.

Do you know there is a website devoted to drummer jokes? Not necessarily good jokes, but still...
  Wed. 9/10/08 1:33am john:

You're right, there should be a drummer joke in there, but all I can think of is the one about how you can tell if the drum riser's level....
  Wed. 9/10/08 1:38am Sybil:

OK, this one is pretty good:

A New York drummer by the name of Joe was out of work and desperately searching for a gig. He went to the union office where they told him about plentiful jobs in Greece. "Greece?, the drummer said. The union representative replied, "Hey, do you want to work or don't you?".

So the man packed his bags and headed off to Greece. He was to meet up with an old guy by the name of Tarek at a small pub near the town of Perin. Upon his arrival, he located the pub but Tarek was nowhere to be found.

He tracked Tarek down later by phone. He said he needed him for a last minute wedding gig tonight at the Oasis hotel. There would be over 400 guests but unfortunately there wouldn't be time for a rehearsal. Tarek said, "Just show up with your drums and be ready to play." Well, the NY drummer wasn't that nervous. He he had played hundreds of wedding gigs back in New York and he was just happy to have some work.

Joe arrived at the hotel on time. The whole band was there except the band leader, Tarek. He set up his drums and patiently awaited for the old guy. Tarek finally arrived 5 minutes before they were supposed to go on. He frantically set up his music stand and raised his arm to lead the band. "Wait!, shouted the NY drummer, what are we playing?" Tarek looked at him calmly (knowing he was a professional drummer) and stated, "Just relax and give me strong backbeats on 7 and 13."
  Wed. 9/10/08 1:41am john:

Oh sure, like there was a drummer anywhere even outside NY who could count to 7.
  Wed. 9/10/08 1:42am Laurie:

So, on this messageboard, some neo-con douchebag said this in response to the news that Wasilla under Sarah Palin made rape victims pay for their rape kits: "They can decline the rape kit if they want." In response, people started posting screencaps after they donated to the Obama campaign. $750 has been donated so far with more people pledging to donate after they get paid!
  Wed. 9/10/08 1:45am efd:

Sybil that is a shaggy dog/drummer joke hybrid!
  Wed. 9/10/08 1:47am C:

Thanks for the Sarah Palin funny/scary fact of the day. Yesterday I got a kick (almost threw up) when I found out she put Van in the middle name of here son so that it sounded like Van H(P)alen. She's going to self destruct at some point, right??
  Wed. 9/10/08 1:48am Sybil:

Must be... I stole it from that website, but it's definitely the most recherche of the jokes there.
  Wed. 9/10/08 1:48am randy in NC:

Speaking of Sarah Palin, yesterday Trent played a great mashup of a Sparks song from Introducing Sparks and Sarah Palin. Check it out on the archives.
  Wed. 9/10/08 1:48am Laurie:

More info on the scary Palin story: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/eric-schmeltzer/palins-wasilla-to-rape-vi_b_125047.html
  Wed. 9/10/08 1:52am randy in NC:

C, think she's going to do an Eagleton?
  Wed. 9/10/08 1:52am john:

C, it's happening already. Just slowly and in too many different ways to list. It's offset by a general unwillingness to admit having been duped and efforts to make it all go away that are if anything even scarier, but give it time.
  Wed. 9/10/08 1:53am john:

She's half Eagleton, half Agnew. Aggleton. Eaglenew?
  Wed. 9/10/08 1:53am C:

Yeah! That mashup was awesome. And looks like Trent beat Obama to the punch in making fun of Palin's lipstick crap.

By the way, what's the difference between Peter Criss and a drummer?
  Wed. 9/10/08 1:55am efd:

I'll check out the Sparks/SPalin mashup, thanks for the tip; I didn't get to hear Trent's show last night.
  Wed. 9/10/08 1:56am efd:

i give up, C, what's the answer?
  Wed. 9/10/08 1:57am C:


sorry, bad joke
  Wed. 9/10/08 1:58am efd:

don't tell that to Jerry Nolan! (If he were still alive)
  Wed. 9/10/08 1:59am Sybil:

Are you somehow implying that a real drummer doesn't wear lipstick? Hmm? Hmm?
  Wed. 9/10/08 2:09pm randy in NC:

Correction, the Sparks song in the S Palin mash up is from their album In Outer Space....
