  Tue. 6/9/09 11:24pm efd:

No worries Rachel, no KC tonight! :)

Thanks for the Chupa Aqui translation, and hi everybody!
  Tue. 6/9/09 11:24pm Sybil:

Welcome back! I agree with calzone! - it seems you had a productive trip.
  Tue. 6/9/09 11:25pm Amanda:

(Wondering if the entire first mic break is going to be en espanol)
  Tue. 6/9/09 11:28pm calzone!:

Yes EVD, I lisp my F's. It's my Barcelona accent. Que lastima, que se mejore, pronto!
  Tue. 6/9/09 11:28pm rachel jansen:

  Tue. 6/9/09 11:29pm the board:

  Tue. 6/9/09 11:31pm castiliano:

hoy no me puedo levantar --

i just can't get up today!
  Tue. 6/9/09 11:34pm chanelling your high school spanish teacher:

mejor needs to be plural
  Tue. 6/9/09 11:36pm efd:

that's exactly the problem: I never had a high school spanish teacher! (Although I guess I should have still figured that out based on my high school French.)
  Tue. 6/9/09 11:36pm G:

no prob, bob, just sayin for the historical record :-)
  Tue. 6/9/09 11:37pm Jason G:

Fantastic show so far, Mr. "Funk" Davies. I assume these were all Barcelona purchases? Great stuff.
  Tue. 6/9/09 11:46pm m@bcn:

bajo el sol = under the sun
  Tue. 6/9/09 11:49pm rachel jansen:

gee evan it sounds like you had a wonderful time in spain,and thank you for letting toni & i house sit for you,,but sorry 'bout the ming vase. we promise to pay you back,,,
  Wed. 6/10/09 12:03am Amanda:

I did NOT get to go on a wonderful vacation AND ALSO hear this band live. Unfair.
  Wed. 6/10/09 12:09am Sybil:

quien le pone el cascabel al gato = who put the bell on the cat, or something like that.

Clueless on "vainica" though
  Wed. 6/10/09 12:16am m@bcn:

vainica doble refers to a stitching style, as in some of her record covers.
  Wed. 6/10/09 12:18am Sybil:

correction: "puts", not "put". Or maybe "Who will bell the cat"?

"Vainica doble" apparently means "double hemstitch". Live and learn.
  Wed. 6/10/09 12:18am rachel jansen:

well evan i gotta skip outta here,, again it's soo great to have you back, don't worry we'll pay you back for the vase,,,see ya next week g'nite!! =)=) ty
  Wed. 6/10/09 12:20am efd:

goodnight, Rachel!

thanks for the info, Sybil and m
  Wed. 6/10/09 12:25am m@bcn:

Thanks to you Evan for another exquisite & great show!
  Wed. 6/10/09 12:26am Sybil:

I hope you don't expect us to translate "chown thur ten rum". Although, now I'm curious...
  Wed. 6/10/09 12:29am gh:

Woooaahh, that's the craziest version of chown thur ten rum ever!
  Wed. 6/10/09 12:29am efd:

m, you're welcome - thanks for your comments!

Sybil, I have the utmost faith in my listeners.
  Wed. 6/10/09 12:31am G:

You mean "Funky Town" in Thai or whatever that one was? Chown Tur Ten Rum = Ask You For Dance, I'm told
  Wed. 6/10/09 12:33am Jessica:


You had me all hopped up for Evans In... the News!

Digging your new finds. You must have had such a blast! Did you feel like you were carrying the weight of so many vicariously vacationing listener's on your shoulders? That was me standing on 'em during the Jesus Lizard's set.
We're all very impressed with your "chown thur ten rum" find, I tell you what/

Now: Keane Bros? I came running from doing things I shouldn't with power tools while injured and not quite reconciled with viscera generally to yap about Leif Garrett. Thank gawd I checked first, for contextual clues. (¡Happy Birthday, Sherry referent!) And whoa: That wasn't Leif Garrett? was it his producer?
  Wed. 6/10/09 12:34am m@bcn:

Evan, you're welcome, de nada lol
  Wed. 6/10/09 12:34am G:

btw, "mejores" as in "Los mejores éxitos de Barcelona" -- was on the phone for awhile (sorry, i know on camchat that would be a rule 8 violation...)
  Wed. 6/10/09 12:35am Jessica:

[kind of proud of her elementary math skillz despite the otherwise succumb to %#&! nonsense]
  Wed. 6/10/09 12:37am Jessica:

also: so buying Thai Funk et ceterA.

stopping now.
  Wed. 6/10/09 12:41am efd:

thanks G, I was thinking that "mejors" didn't look quite right.

Hi Jessica! and, uh.. hi! Not sure if there's a Keane Bros/Leif G. connection, other than the pages of TIger Beat and 16 of course.
  Wed. 6/10/09 12:45am Michael from the Left Coastq:

Ah, a birdman recording!
  Wed. 6/10/09 12:46am Michael from the Left Coast:

and followed by the Records--outstandng!
  Wed. 6/10/09 12:47am Deaconlight:

I have the 45 of this Records' song! (and the albm)
  Wed. 6/10/09 12:49am efd:

Hi DD! I could have used the 45 just now with the way the songs flow right into each other on the LP.

MIchael, when I saw your post about Bob Log III after I cued up the Records song I had a hunch you'd enjoy that.
  Wed. 6/10/09 12:49am Deaconlight:

John and Paul playing together this weekend? Is that in NY? I know both of those guys.
  Wed. 6/10/09 12:50am Amanda:

Cu-cu-cu-cola is all I ever drink.
  Wed. 6/10/09 12:51am efd:

yep, they'll be live here in the WFMU studios!

and two other guys you know will be live on WFMU *tomorrow* afternoon - a certain Mr. Holsapple & Mr. Stamey.
  Wed. 6/10/09 12:52am Deaconlight:

Paul has had Deaconlight as his No. 1 friend on MySpace: http://myspace.com/paulcollins for years.
  Wed. 6/10/09 12:53am Deaconlight:

Well you should follow this song with some Little Diesel - that would be a good segue.
  Wed. 6/10/09 12:54am Deaconlight:

Evan - will you be hosting those guest artists?
  Wed. 6/10/09 12:58am Deaconlight:

Wow - I just checked my e-mail and got a message from Paul Collins. Lattice of co-incidence!!!
  Wed. 6/10/09 1:00am deaconlight:

Wow this is awesome. I would have never known about Paul and John if not for Evan. Dude, you so rock!!!

I love summer so I don't have to get up and take the kids to school in the morning!!
  Wed. 6/10/09 1:02am clavender:

has anyone been to the record collector store?? this is my first time hearing about it!
  Wed. 6/10/09 1:03am Deaconlight:

Paul just sent me this link about him and John. Serious lattice of co-incidence. http://www.magnetmagazine.com/2009/06/09/live-review-john-wicks-and-paul-collins-campbell-ca-june-6-2009/
  Wed. 6/10/09 1:08am efd:

very cool, DD! Thanks for the link.

Clavender, I haven't been there myself, but they seem to have live bands there fairly often. I'd check it out if I weren't going to see the Red Sox and Phillies in Philadelphia that night.
  Wed. 6/10/09 1:10am Deaconlight:

Evan - I was just reading that article - John is talking about The Records' former manager and he says: “He thought we were off the boil, so he was busy with his new signing, the Yachts,”

Maybe you should share this with our pal Tim Sommer!
  Wed. 6/10/09 1:25am Deaconlight:

You know Paul used to live in Spain.
  Wed. 6/10/09 1:27am efd:

I did not know that!

Funny story about Records/Yachts - that would only make Tim mad.
  Wed. 6/10/09 1:31am Deaconlight:

Yeah, Paul has lived in Madrid for years, He only recently moved back to NYC.

By the way, your show ROCKS!
  Wed. 6/10/09 1:36am Deaconlight:

I played this song awhile back on Deaconlight. It was requested by Marko, a guy who works with Get Hip - a US distributor of Paul Collins' records. In fact, Marko rang me up from Cleveland and put Paul on the line.I'm serious! I think it ws Tommy James' birthday when Marko made that request.
  Wed. 6/10/09 1:39am june:

Tim Sommer, as in before he became weird, he was in the great band, Hugo Largo? Like, let's hear some tonight maybe?
  Wed. 6/10/09 1:39am Deaconlight:

dang is every song he writes for JKS?
  Wed. 6/10/09 1:45am deaconlight:

and to think Peter and Chris did some of their first radio interviews on Deaconlight.- http://dcnlyt.com/dbs
  Wed. 6/10/09 1:53am efd:

June, that is the Tim Sommer in question - but I have to admit that for me, Hugo Largo was kind of when he "became weird" (musically speaking, that is).
  Wed. 6/10/09 1:57am deaconlight:

o i haven't heard this elvis song in ages. one of my faves!
