  Tue. 11/10/09 11:14pm Michael from the Left Coast:

Some talk of Bowie playing Coachella this year. He's been away a while
  Tue. 11/10/09 11:15pm meg g.:

ohhhhhhhhhh double bowie,,i love it!!
  Tue. 11/10/09 11:16pm Michael from the Left Coast:

I've always wondered what are some of those sounds on this album--like the almost beeping noise in the background. Like the hooting noise in "Fashion"
  Tue. 11/10/09 11:18pm Lang:

OMG You are NOT playing this! Except you ARE! I love you EFD!!!
  Tue. 11/10/09 11:20pm Michael from the Left Coast:

How about the Four Horsemen--Rockin' is My Business to follow? There's a song I haven't heard in fifteen years
  Tue. 11/10/09 11:23pm toni daytona:

evan,,,meg g. is a new friend of mine please make her feel welcome,,,=)
  Tue. 11/10/09 11:23pm Chad From Oregon:

There are baseless rumors EVERY year that Bowie will play Coachella.
  Tue. 11/10/09 11:24pm efd:

Toni, believe it or not I already figured that out.

Hi everyone, glad you're enjoying the show so far!
  Tue. 11/10/09 11:24pm nec13:

Does Bowie still have his own ISP?
  Tue. 11/10/09 11:25pm Michael from the Left Coast:

True Chad but this year there are fewer big names to catch attention and I imagine they'll throw stupid money at him to do it
  Tue. 11/10/09 11:29pm meg g.:

evan could you play my ultimate fave bowie tune "fame" thaks again evan
  Tue. 11/10/09 11:30pm efd:

"Meg," why would I play that after I just played two other David Bowie songs?
  Tue. 11/10/09 11:33pm nec13:

How about some David Jones instead?
  Tue. 11/10/09 11:34pm meg g.:

you could make tonite a david bowie nite,rite evan?
  Tue. 11/10/09 11:41pm Hermínio:

  Tue. 11/10/09 11:43pm Michael from the Left Coast:

EFD--That's Caleb Quaye (pronounced Kway).
He also toured with Hall and Oates
  Tue. 11/10/09 11:47pm john from otisville:

he played w/ Rod the Mod a lot, and anyone near that London scene
  Tue. 11/10/09 11:47pm john:

And actually most of Hookoot played with Elton in the early days, though Im not sure how often--I know they were nearly all on the great Tumbleweed Connection.
  Tue. 11/10/09 11:48pm Amanda:

Congrats Harry, indeed! Every new day should be unwrapped like a precious gift.
  Tue. 11/10/09 11:49pm nec13:

Good song. I've always liked the Young Rascals.
  Tue. 11/10/09 11:50pm john from otisville:

he wore glasses and had a slight astigmatism in his left eye
  Tue. 11/10/09 11:51pm Michael from the Left Coast:

Hey EFD as a fellow drummer I think you'd appreciate the multi part interview on YouTube with Dino Danelli (interview done by Liberty Devito--Billy Joel's former drummer).
  Tue. 11/10/09 11:52pm bennett4senate:

  Tue. 11/10/09 11:56pm nec13:

One of my all-time favorite baseball teams: the '67 Red Sox. Yaz, Reggie Smith, Tony C, etc.
  Tue. 11/10/09 11:58pm meg g.:

  Wed. 11/11/09 12:05am observant:

  Wed. 11/11/09 12:09am camel:

i'm sleepy already!!!!
  Wed. 11/11/09 12:13am nec13:

Evan, have you ever listened to "Dancing in Your Head"? It's fantastic.
  Wed. 11/11/09 12:15am Bummer:

Saw erstwhile EFD fave Jeremy Jay last week--not very good. A little too introverted on stage, a little too prima donnaish about his reverb, and not fully engaged in his own songs. Of course, the lame, sparse audience may have had something to do with it.
  Wed. 11/11/09 12:16am randy in NC:

Re '67 Sox, 2 things I remember about that. 1) many (most?) of the Series games were played during the day and 2) they played them over the PA system at JFK Jr HS when I was there...
  Wed. 11/11/09 12:34am efd:

randy, I'm with you on the daytime World Series games, although strangely I remember that more with the '69 Mets-Orioles series,

Too bad about the J. Jay show, Bummer - or Aharon, I presume.

nec13, not sure what "Dancing In Your Head" is...? I'm prepared to feel ignorant now.

Michael, I'm definitely more interested in Liberty DeVItto's interviewing, as opposed to his drumming. ;) I'll look for those clips.
  Wed. 11/11/09 12:35am osvi:

EFD, playing the ill conceived beats. Cant wait for the mini marathon, wanna give a little somethin' somethin' to the worlds greatest radio station! woot woot...
  Wed. 11/11/09 12:37am toni daytona:

efd---what do you think of my my friend,,aint she sweet??
  Wed. 11/11/09 12:43am ?:

her perfume is weird
  Wed. 11/11/09 12:47am efd:

osvi, thanks in advance - your support is appreciated.

Toni, I assume we can expect to get donations from you and every single one of your friends. I'll be keeping an eye out.
  Wed. 11/11/09 12:48am Bummer:

Since I'm oversharing on the comment board (w/cover blown), I'll note that I've had the misfortune to stand behind James McNew at far too many shows.
  Wed. 11/11/09 1:17am Joe:

the Swingin' Neckbreakers are pretty good. But I always get this creepy nagging Black Crowesy kind of tingle in the back of my head when I hear them and it kind of ruins everything. And I don't even -really- hate the Black Crowes, even though I sorta do.

The Black Angels, on the other hand, I am exceptionally passionate about. Seeing them live was like a religious experience.
  Wed. 11/11/09 1:18am Danne D:

hey guys! hey efd!
I have to catch up on this great set on the archives :(

But...did you guys hear about the celebrity phone slave for next week? :)
  Wed. 11/11/09 1:21am Joe:

well, I'm not sure I'd call myself a "celebrity," per se...
  Wed. 11/11/09 1:22am efd:

Harry Harrison is going to be my phone slave??

Joe, have you seen the Neckbreakers live? That might disabuse you of this misplaced Black Crowes association.
  Wed. 11/11/09 1:23am Danne D:


actually it was someone nearer and dearer to my heart :)
  Wed. 11/11/09 1:24am Joe:

you know I can't refuse an EFD reccomendation. I'll put them on "The List". With a bullet.
  Wed. 11/11/09 1:28am Danne D:

*pouts Toni-Style* nobody cares that I'll be phone slaving next week 8(

that's okay call in and pledge everyone :) Show the love for the Funk Man!
  Wed. 11/11/09 1:31am kamper:

Just tuned in and it looks like I missed a killer show.

Thank god for the arkives!
  Wed. 11/11/09 1:32am Danne D:

LOL awwww thx for the shout out Evan :)

Puleeze pledge what you can folks. Consider it kinda like a 2nd Cinco De Funko :)
  Wed. 11/11/09 1:33am efd:

Danne D, we kid because we love.

Welcome, kamper!
  Wed. 11/11/09 1:33am efd:

Think of it as more of a Casho de Funko
  Wed. 11/11/09 1:38am Danne D:

yup yup

Just take like $10 off each Christmas gift and pass it along to FMU :) Just don't tell Santa I said to do that!
  Wed. 11/11/09 1:39am Joe:

I've just been openly encouraging people to deal drugs and pledge the proceeds.
  Wed. 11/11/09 1:40am kamper:

The Swim has a Teardrop Explodes slash Julian Cope vibe to it
  Wed. 11/11/09 1:40am Joe:

but your idea is much better. Like, way better.
  Wed. 11/11/09 1:42am Danne D:

Or conversely cut $10 out of each bag of drugs you were going to give people for Christmas - kinda works the same way :)
  Wed. 11/11/09 1:44am Michael from the Left Coast:

For a moment there I thought this was an alternate version of Wunderbar by Tenpole Tudor
  Wed. 11/11/09 1:46am Danne D:

I had a zim zamm in my backyard growing up. As a result I play tennis ambidextrously.
Ironically enough, though, I cannot swim.
  Wed. 11/11/09 1:49am Michael from the Left Coast:

EFD you know that Purdie is the drummer in the Broadway show Hair at the moment
  Wed. 11/11/09 1:54am efd:

I did not know that! Thanks for the info.
  Wed. 11/11/09 1:58am kamper:

A crest??
  Wed. 11/11/09 1:59am Danne D:

G'night everyone!
Call early call often next week folks and pledge pledge pledge!!!!
