Options September 1, 2009: OUTRAGEOUS CHERRY live set! plus: efd meets his Waterloo
Detroit's Outrageous Cherry returns to WFMU for a killer live set that you won't want to miss! Singer, songwriter and producer extraordinaire Matthew Smith and guitarist Larry Ray continue to form the core of the band, and they're currently aided and abetted by past members of the Cyril Lords and Little Claw. Their sound is a delicious layer cake of Motown backbeats with power-pop harmonies, covered with a tasty layer of psych. Their ninth(!) full-length release, Universal Malcontents, is out now on the Alive label, and they start a west coast tour on Sept 4 at the Hemlock in San Francisco. Check their MySpace page for the complete list of dates!

Listener comments!

  Tue. 9/1/09 11:06pm anemone:

EFD always does it right!
  Tue. 9/1/09 11:07pm Jessica:

Hey! How's a girl supposed to be morose to this?
  Tue. 9/1/09 11:08pm randy in NC:

I saw Golden Earing in either '73 or '74 as the opener for King Crimson in Central Park. They got booed off the stage, with people throwing tomatoes at them. I still wonder who would bring tomatoes to a concert? Crowds are tough in NY I guess...
  Tue. 9/1/09 11:09pm efd:

The Evan "Funk" Davies show is a morosity-free zone, Jessica!

Thanks Anemone, and hi Randy! Funny story.
  Tue. 9/1/09 11:11pm anemone:

EFD! You gots to open your show with a Pink Fairies tune one of these days.
  Tue. 9/1/09 11:13pm john:

Hey Evan! Holsapple and Stamey did a really nice version of this when we saw them in LA last month.
  Tue. 9/1/09 11:15pm efd:

hi John! very cool. Anemone, I'll put them on my list!
  Tue. 9/1/09 11:16pm Matt:

The only thing this show's missing...a little "Gold Dust Woman".

How 'bout it, Evan?
  Tue. 9/1/09 11:16pm Sybil:

Good evening all!

Oh, am I happy to be here.
  Tue. 9/1/09 11:17pm Sybil:

In other words, what Jessica said.
  Tue. 9/1/09 11:18pm Sybil:

The Spoiler?! I thought I was the only one who knew about this one.

  Tue. 9/1/09 11:20pm anemone:

Therese played some Fleetwood Mac in her show earlier. That being said, I'm all for more FM!
  Tue. 9/1/09 11:20pm efd:

hi Sybil! I just found out about "The Spoiler" on Sunday - amazing song!
Matt, coincidentally I do have something Fleetwood Mac-related for later in the show, but not "Gold Dust Woman."
  Tue. 9/1/09 11:21pm john:

I'd vote for Tusk, personally. And Sybil, those Memphis 60 and 70 comps are awesome!
  Tue. 9/1/09 11:21pm Laurie:

My cat was pawing at my door. I actually thought it was percussion on this wonderful Dukes of Stratosphear song.

SLOAN. Yes, I love Sloan.
  Tue. 9/1/09 11:22pm Sybil:

OMG, does this show rock or what?

And we're just getting started.
  Tue. 9/1/09 11:22pm minnie the moocha:

nice tunez this eve
  Tue. 9/1/09 11:24pm Matt:

What did the critics say the best album of 1997 was? Because ONE CHORD TO ANOTHER is better.
  Tue. 9/1/09 11:25pm Laurie:

Hey Evan, have you seen the video for Jay-Z's D.O.A. (Death of Autotune)? I think Harvey Keitel is in it.
  Tue. 9/1/09 11:25pm dave:

it's time for funk!

  Tue. 9/1/09 11:25pm Sybil:

Frak the critics.
  Tue. 9/1/09 11:26pm Matt:

Laurie - what?! Between that and INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS, this is the Summer of Keitel!
  Tue. 9/1/09 11:26pm Big Plastic Head:

Great set, Evan.
  Tue. 9/1/09 11:27pm Sybil:

If this show gets better, I may well enter an altered state.
  Tue. 9/1/09 11:27pm Matt:

I got quoted! Thanks Evan!
  Tue. 9/1/09 11:29pm Sybil:

Ooh, Matt, I'm jealous! Not that you don't deserve it!
  Tue. 9/1/09 11:31pm sabrina lane:

heeey evan--awsome show so far,btw evan are'nt you glad tat summers over? i sure am,,
  Tue. 9/1/09 11:35pm Sybil:

efd, I wander far...
  Tue. 9/1/09 11:36pm dave:

i've been waiting a lifetime for somebody to out-mighty-lemon-drops the mighty lemon drops and it pretty much sounds like outrageous cherry have pulled it off.

i can die happy.
  Tue. 9/1/09 11:36pm sabrina lane:

also efd i gave you a shout out during monica's show the other nite,,,didnt' you see it??
  Tue. 9/1/09 11:39pm efd:

Laurie, haven't seen that video yet - I'll have to check it out.

Dave, glad you appreciate both the MLD quality of Outrageous Cherry *and* the genius of DJ Funktual.
BPH, good to see you here!
Sabrina, yes, I saw - glad to see there are other castles you haunt besides mine. :)
  Tue. 9/1/09 11:39pm Sybil:

I hope y'al recommend stuff.
  Tue. 9/1/09 11:40pm efd:

behind-the-scenes note: Sam, the drummer, uses just a floor tom and snare!
  Tue. 9/1/09 11:43pm sabrina lane:

evan--just to let you know you & monica are my ultimate favorite fmu dee jays,,,it's a fact!!!
  Tue. 9/1/09 11:43pm dave:

sam's vinny denunzio with a gear fetish!
  Tue. 9/1/09 11:47pm newsjoe:

New to these guys (Outrageous Cherry) and I love it already :).
  Tue. 9/1/09 11:48pm efd:

i guess i ought to be figuring out the Midnight Ticket Oasis instead of sitting here in a trance
  Tue. 9/1/09 11:50pm efd:

actually i'm going back into the trance for "unless" - this is an amazing version
  Tue. 9/1/09 11:50pm sabrina lane:

a little known fact; even though i'm 28 i'm a disco diva baby boommer,,,=)
  Tue. 9/1/09 11:51pm dave:

man oh man do i love 'unless'.

what a perfect song.
  Tue. 9/1/09 11:54pm efd:

dave, i think now you're going to love it even more.

here's a fun game you all can play: guess which songs in this set caused me to jot down songs that i played in tonight's opening set.
(note: not every song in the opening set was jotted down during the session)
  Tue. 9/1/09 11:55pm dave:

holy crap.
  Tue. 9/1/09 11:57pm sabrina lane:

evan,,this is a great set,,but this is my last post i wish i could post all nite, but maybe next week,,,g'nite yall
  Tue. 9/1/09 11:59pm stingy d:

  Tue. 9/1/09 11:59pm efd:

  Wed. 9/2/09 12:00am efd:

  Wed. 9/2/09 12:01am stingy d:

  Wed. 9/2/09 12:02am P.A.:

paging toni daytona. call your office. thank you.
  Wed. 9/2/09 12:05am BPH:

Evan, you sound like you have a cold in your interview.
  Wed. 9/2/09 12:06am efd:

BPH, i did! thank you for noticing. :)
  Wed. 9/2/09 12:06am stingy d:

nah he sounds like he just woke up
  Wed. 9/2/09 12:07am stingy d:

wait he said dennis coffey!? wild!
  Wed. 9/2/09 12:07am dave:

i'm not sure how to reconcile the fact that "toni daytona" is not an anagram for "cthulu" with the fact that we live in an apparently ordered universe.
  Wed. 9/2/09 12:07am BPH:

But you still brought it like the pro that you are. Great stuff.
  Wed. 9/2/09 12:11am footnote:

the same person who posts as sabrina lane also posts as toni daytona and under other names. but it's not comedy if footnotes are required :-P
  Wed. 9/2/09 12:13am Danne D:

Fabulous show so far Evan. Btw, the Dukes of Stratosphear song had me getting a bit nostalgic as with the fall air it brought me back to my college days if for but a little while.

LOL at Evan losing it :D
  Wed. 9/2/09 12:13am stingy d:

did someone say something about dinosaur L? or am i losing it?
  Wed. 9/2/09 12:13am ?:

monsieur de tergent :-P :-P
  Wed. 9/2/09 12:13am dave:

jacques détergént KILLED EFD!
  Wed. 9/2/09 12:13am BPH:

Hahahahahah!!! You got the giggles!
  Wed. 9/2/09 12:14am Danne D:

On an unrelated note - I really hate Cole Hamels :(
  Wed. 9/2/09 12:15am Joe Camel:

Take your camels to bed

wink wink

I am one sexy camel!
  Wed. 9/2/09 12:15am stingy détergént:

bonjour what is your oui oui!?
  Wed. 9/2/09 12:16am Danne D:

Midnight Giggle Oasis
  Wed. 9/2/09 12:18am 24:

here i am being used as a giggle fit coverup. how are the mighty fallen!
  Wed. 9/2/09 12:18am stingy d:

is cole hamels that chlid actor?
  Wed. 9/2/09 12:22am Danne D:

no he's the phillies pitcher who is so inconsistent I benched him :( and of course he pitched a shut out :( I just wanna lead the Evan Funk A Happy How Do You To You Fantasy Baseball League for one day. And it's doomed to never happen :kicksrock:
  Wed. 9/2/09 12:23am dave:

jacques détergént's (i'm using the accents even if they won't, gawddamnit) myspace page does not disappoint: it features the beguiling and creatively-spelled "waldorf histeria".
  Wed. 9/2/09 12:23am Danne D:

I'll never catch that pesky Ubergoober *pouts*
  Wed. 9/2/09 12:24am 24-carat black:

i begin to giggle. tears runnin down my eyes!
  Wed. 9/2/09 12:24am lupica:

Let the Sloan renaissance of 09 begin!
  Wed. 9/2/09 12:24am stingy d:

those drums are the cream in my pants.
  Wed. 9/2/09 12:24am efd:

i have met my Waterloo, and it is Jacques Detergent
  Wed. 9/2/09 12:26am Danne D:

i begin to wiggle as I am having weepy giggles
  Wed. 9/2/09 12:27am G:

there, there. we all have our breaking points...

at least he wasn't Tide De Tergent...
  Wed. 9/2/09 12:30am Joe:

listening to you try not to crack up made me crack up and almost drive my car into a tree.

And I didn't even GET THE JOKE
  Wed. 9/2/09 12:31am footnote:

the performer's name was french but sounded like a humble household product.
  Wed. 9/2/09 12:32am how's this?:

  Wed. 9/2/09 12:34am Joe:

But that's only funny if you say it in a french accent.

Okay maybe I do get the joke.

PS - if I were king, it'd be totally okay to crack up on the radio
  Wed. 9/2/09 12:36am Jock Detergent:

Disclaimer: Jock Strap not included.
  Wed. 9/2/09 12:36am dave:

i wonder how you get to be one of the arrrghs. do you know wau personally and just get an automatic in, or are there audditions? did wau put an ad in the paper seeking arrrghs?
  Wed. 9/2/09 12:37am dave:

  Wed. 9/2/09 12:38am Wau y los Arrrghs:

Auditions? We don't need no stinkin' audtions!
  Wed. 9/2/09 12:45am efd:

Lupica - and not a moment to soon!
Joe, I don't really think there's a joke to get. Glad you're OK.
  Wed. 9/2/09 12:46am Joe:

I am loving synth sting in this song. If I had won that powerball jackpot, I'd pay somebody to follow me around with a MicroKorg and play that sound every time I did the finger-gun point at something.
  Wed. 9/2/09 12:54am Danne D:

I gotta turn in - i'm just exhausted. Thanks for another great show Evan! I look forward to catching up with the rest on the archives.

Night everyone :)
  Wed. 9/2/09 12:54am efd:

goodnight Danne, thanks for stopping by! Good luck with the first place pursuit!
  Wed. 9/2/09 12:56am Michael from the Left Coast:

Damn, can't believe I missed Bob Welch!
  Wed. 9/2/09 12:57am Paolo:

Bob Welch was rather satisfying
  Wed. 9/2/09 12:58am Michael from the Left Coast:

don't forget Mystery Train!
Carter rules!
  Wed. 9/2/09 1:04am efd:

Michael, duly noted!
  Wed. 9/2/09 1:04am Brian:

Thanks for playing the new Pollard. I think Elephant Jokes is the best album he's released in weeks...
  Wed. 9/2/09 1:05am coalhard from the west virginia future coast:

don't forget the peace train--cat stevens--aka yousef
  Wed. 9/2/09 1:06am efd:

Brian with the zing of the week!
  Wed. 9/2/09 1:10am Joe:

a question of etiquette:

Is wearing one of your WFMU t-shirts to a WFMU event (or volunteering) analagous to wearing a band t-shirt to see said band?
  Wed. 9/2/09 1:11am efd:

ha! personally, I say no - but curious what others have to say.
  Wed. 9/2/09 1:12am Michael from the Left Coast:

EFD--Is this a different mix?
  Wed. 9/2/09 1:13am randy in NC:

Sounds different to me too...
  Wed. 9/2/09 1:13am efd:

it's from the private stock LP - maybe the one on the Chrysalis reissue was remixed...?
  Wed. 9/2/09 1:16am randy in NC:

Maybe it's the less than ideal computer speakers I'm currently using...
  Wed. 9/2/09 1:18am Michael from the Left Coast:

Man Overboard was definitely a different mix, possibly a completely different take on the Chrysalis album.
  Wed. 9/2/09 1:19am stingy d:

joe - i'd say that that's a yes. HOWEVER! the general attitude of wfmu from the inside and the outside is that it's one big we're-nerds party. so it really comes down to: do you want to be nerds with the girl and the guy who are also wearing wfmu shirts or not?
  Wed. 9/2/09 1:20am slugluv1313:

YESi noticed that about the BLONDIE tune too! totally different from the version on the LP i have . . . and omg THE TUBES!!!!!!!
  Wed. 9/2/09 1:22am stingy d:

i don't make no fashion faux pas'
  Wed. 9/2/09 1:22am randy in NC:

Tubes played here earlier this summer, they were actually still fun I thought.
  Wed. 9/2/09 1:24am Michael from the Left Coast:

doesn't disclosure require that Confidential is Michael Shelley's label?
I'm late to the party because I played music tonight with the guy who wrote the Greasy Kids Stuff theme
  Wed. 9/2/09 1:31am efd:

it's not a disclosure issue, it's a self-promotion issue - so, for example, he can't play it on his show but other DJs don't have to say it's his label (nor are they prevented from mentioning it)
  Wed. 9/2/09 1:33am efd:

actually more conflict of interest than self-promotion
  Wed. 9/2/09 1:36am Joe:

Everyone knows those rules are the only thing keeping Evan from absorbing WFMU into his sprawling media empire.
  Wed. 9/2/09 1:38am Paolo:

Good night all, I have class at 8:30 tomorrow morning, unfortunately :(
  Wed. 9/2/09 1:39am efd:

goodnight Paolo, thanks for listening & commenting!
  Wed. 9/2/09 1:39am Joe:

"____'s sprawling media empire" is a pretty good name for a radio show, actually.

  Wed. 9/2/09 1:40am Rupert Murdoch:

Yep, Evan's breathing down my neck..
  Wed. 9/2/09 1:41am efd:

don't sleep too soundly tonight, Rupe.
  Wed. 9/2/09 1:43am Rupe:

Yep, I need some of those Michael Jackson-strength anesthetics for this. Got my concierge MD on speed dial.
  Wed. 9/2/09 1:44am Laurie:

Wow, the bass in that song made my room vibrate. Literally. And the volume isn't that loud, but I do have a pretty awesome speaker set up.
  Wed. 9/2/09 1:44am stingy d:

rupe scoops and flim flams!
  Wed. 9/2/09 1:49am randy in NC:

  Wed. 9/2/09 1:50am Michael from the Left Coast:

The great Dennis Diken and the great Ed Stasium, rocking it together!
  Wed. 9/2/09 1:51am efd:

they're going to be on the Muscular Dystrophy telethon this weekend! (well, the band - not sure about Ed Stasium)
  Wed. 9/2/09 1:53am stingy d:

i'm dLunk
  Wed. 9/2/09 1:53am Michael from the Left Coast:

Ed won't be there and for the first time in many years I won't be seeing much of the telethon this year (I"m playing a gig that day)
