Options June 23, 2010: Scrantapalooza, with live sets from FULMARINE PETRELS and DAS BLACK MILK!
Here's your opportunity to hear two of the top acts from Scranton PA, aka the Electric City! Das Black Milk is making a return visit to WFMU, and their dark catchy postpunk-meets-90s sound will be pleasing to the ears of Bauhaus, Mudhoney, Joy Division and/or Nothing People fans. Their new album, Talk To Your Body, is out now. Das Black Milk are bringing along their brother band Fulmarine Petrels, who feature a distorted lo-fi garage-punk sound that combines elements of, say, The Oblivians and Thee Oh Sees. Catch both these bands live on Wednesday the 23rd, and check out leopardlibido.blogspot.com for more Scranton action, including free downloads!

Listener comments!

  Wed. 6/23/10 9:05pm AZ:

Eerie synchronicity...I was just listening to Ha Ha Ha!
  Wed. 6/23/10 9:06pm efd:

whoa! That *is* eerie!
  Wed. 6/23/10 9:16pm Umed Jim:

Hey Evan,

Wednsdays are better for me-I hope it's working for you. I'm awaiting next years premium. There'll be another New Math song, right!?
  Wed. 6/23/10 9:24pm efd:

Hey Jim, nice to see you here in real time! I'm not sure how much deeper I can go into that New Math EP. :)
  Wed. 6/23/10 9:25pm worksdaily:

This reminds me of the extra early (3 to 5 AM) shift they gave me at WOOVIT in Bleaksburg VA 'way back in '82. Kinda music made me situp and listen, tho nobody else did at that hour!
Hail to the DJ!!!
  Wed. 6/23/10 9:25pm Marmalade Kitty:

Flowers after dark sounds like ari-up the slits singing.. Thanks that was very good!!
  Wed. 6/23/10 9:26pm john:

Becky: "Yinz guys musta loved da burgh!"
  Wed. 6/23/10 9:26pm cheri:

hiya evan---happy summer
  Wed. 6/23/10 9:27pm AZ:

One of the greatest-ever opening sets in the history of the EFD program.
  Wed. 6/23/10 9:29pm scrantonian:

lovin it!
  Wed. 6/23/10 9:30pm ?:

  Wed. 6/23/10 9:33pm cheri:

efd--does'nt it feel weird being on wed instead of tuesdays now?
  Wed. 6/23/10 9:33pm john:

No Jaggerz medley?
  Wed. 6/23/10 9:35pm nec13:

After hearing that Donnie Iris song, I have a sudden hankering for IC Light and pierogies.
  Wed. 6/23/10 9:41pm efd:

nec13, I understand! I enjoyed both IC Light and regular IC on my trip.
John, maybe next week for the Jaggerz.
Cheri, yes it does but hopefully we'll all get used to it.
AZ, Marmalade Kitty and worksdaily, thanks!!
  Wed. 6/23/10 9:42pm cheri:

well efd this disco diva is heading out,,,i'm sorry,, i gotta listen to to the live sat,,,g'nite evan
  Wed. 6/23/10 9:42pm ?:

this is scrantastic!
  Wed. 6/23/10 9:44pm efd:

thank you, mystery commenter! (I like scrantadjacent-palooza, btw)
  Wed. 6/23/10 9:44pm john:

Sorry--my comment crossed yours in the ether. I was actually asking about the Donnie Iris set just before you mentioned the album (we'll be hitting those stores in the next few weeks too), but we'd be thrilled to get the studio version too!
  Wed. 6/23/10 9:44pm efd:

Have a good night, Cheri!
  Wed. 6/23/10 9:46pm Joe:

These songs are all exquisitely named, so far. Sung and played, also, but the name is the thing.
  Wed. 6/23/10 9:48pm efd:

They're all leading up to the last song, which has the best name of all of them.
  Wed. 6/23/10 9:55pm efd:

to wit, the song they're playing right now.
  Wed. 6/23/10 10:44pm Sybil:

What, no comments since 9:55? I've been cooking and eating dinner, that's my excuse.
Great background music for it!
I like this "naranja" - the singer's voice reminds me of someone.... who? It'll come to me...
  Wed. 6/23/10 10:45pm Marmalade Kitty:

naranja! Yeaah!!! I hear strong 80's new wave influence great x
  Wed. 6/23/10 10:48pm efd:

Sybil, I was wondering the same thing! Thanks for breaking the silence. And thank you too, Marmalade Kitty.
  Wed. 6/23/10 10:52pm AZ:

Must depart to go feed LJP (and me). Loved the Scrantapalooza! Very excited for Soft Tags next week; their live show in LA last Tuesday was phenomenal.
  Wed. 6/23/10 10:53pm efd:

cool, thanks AZ! My best to LJP as well.
  Wed. 6/23/10 10:57pm Taylor:

Javelin? Damn you, WFMU! Another CD I must now own.
  Wed. 6/23/10 10:59pm bennett4senate:

this csc funk band is funky into the other room
  Wed. 6/23/10 10:59pm ADM:

  Wed. 6/23/10 11:02pm Danne D:

Hi funk fans :) Hey efd! So any midseason fantasy baseball updates for your fans? I hear that Aharon guy is making moves :)
  Wed. 6/23/10 11:04pm Sybil:

luaka bop!

Speaking of funk, no Garry Shider? :(
  Wed. 6/23/10 11:13pm essence:

"la puoisson rouge"
  Wed. 6/23/10 11:14pm Pruppets:

Beloved Aunt.
  Wed. 6/23/10 11:15pm Danne D:

:( My phone is a pain and can't see comments past the first few. Ugh.

Always fun to hear Evan say Le Poisson Rouge :)
  Wed. 6/23/10 11:20pm Sybil:

I'm listening to WFMU on the stream and watching 2 baseball games simultaneously on my computer while mucking about with work - related stuff. So the whole thing crashed, and I totally missed the 11 o'clock ticket tocket or whatever we're calling it... What *are* we calling it? (By "we", I mean "efd", of course.)
  Wed. 6/23/10 11:22pm Danne D:

ESPN was totally crashed all day with the World Cup Game (USA! USA!) and then that epic Wimbledon match that still has not ended.
  Wed. 6/23/10 11:24pm minnesota jeff:

I've heard that despite how legendary that Wimbledon game is, its been some fairly poor tennis. Just evenly matched.
  Wed. 6/23/10 11:25pm john:

Sybil---sounds like the perfect evening! Got anything to eat? We're all famished!
  Wed. 6/23/10 11:26pm Sybil:

I think I might have some rosemary and olive oil potato chips around here somewhere...
  Wed. 6/23/10 11:28pm Danne D:

It's awesome cuz it's just such a test of wills at this point :)

I think they are playing awesome for guys who played 7 hours straight today. I mean they still were uncorking 120-130 mph serves which is amazing. Very few unforced errors or double faults. Pretty amazing
  Wed. 6/23/10 11:29pm cheri:

efd--just like the weather this week,,,your shows are always hot!!! keep on rocking!!
  Wed. 6/23/10 11:29pm minnesota jeff:

Yeah I read all the records broken and its just really crazy how neither can overcome the other. When I say "fairly poor" its just that its not been very volly heavy, lots and lots of aces.
  Wed. 6/23/10 11:31pm efd:

I still don't know what to call the ticket thing! I'm still trying to figure it out.

Danne, I'll see if I can squeeze in a fantasy baseball update before the end of the show!
  Wed. 6/23/10 11:40pm minnesota jeff:

"Throwing Tickets at eleven like strikes from Burt Blyleven"?
  Wed. 6/23/10 11:41pm efd:

I'm circling you, Jeff!
  Wed. 6/23/10 11:41pm jmd:

My latest, greatest shame is that it took me several minutes to figure out that the Plimsouls track was almost thirty years old.
  Wed. 6/23/10 11:41pm Danne D:

Tix be home by 'leven?
  Wed. 6/23/10 11:42pm Sybil:

One doesn't expect tennis to be a war of attrition, somehow.
  Wed. 6/23/10 11:43pm Danne D:

You could you it's 5 o'clock somewhere by jimmy buffet and just say 11 instead ;o)

okay maybe not.

Au contraire Sybil - I've played my share of matches that have seemed that way :)
  Wed. 6/23/10 11:43pm Sybil:

Wait, how did the Red Sox lose?

Dang, I'm getting old. I can only pay attention to three things at a time.
  Wed. 6/23/10 11:44pm minnesota jeff:

I've never been circled by Burt, but EFD is next best!
  Wed. 6/23/10 11:44pm Danne D:

El Evan O'clock?
  Wed. 6/23/10 11:45pm efd:

Giambi hit a 2-run walk-off HR in the bottom of the 9th, my phone told me.
  Wed. 6/23/10 11:46pm Sybil:

Tell your phone to shut up, then.
  Wed. 6/23/10 11:47pm efd:

believe me, I've tried!
  Wed. 6/23/10 11:47pm minnesota jeff:

Does Giambi still have the Sgt. Slaughter mustache?
  Wed. 6/23/10 11:48pm Joe B:

Giambi must be back on something
  Wed. 6/23/10 11:48pm Danne D:

Well Morphine has a song called Eleven O'Clock, Evan :)

My pitching numbers are way better than i expected this week considering Burnett gave up like 50 home runs in that game
  Wed. 6/23/10 11:49pm minnesota jeff:

Maybe its just a Rocky Mountain high?
  Wed. 6/23/10 11:50pm john:

I seem to be setting some kind of record for home runs by guys I leave on the bench. My B team rocks!
  Wed. 6/23/10 11:52pm Danne D:

G'night funk fans :)
Thanks for the tunes El Evan!
  Wed. 6/23/10 11:54pm efd:

goodnight Danne! Thanks for stopping by.
  Wed. 6/23/10 11:55pm john:

Such a wonderful little song. Glad you played it again!
  Wed. 6/23/10 11:56pm efd:

I'm gonna try to make that a summertime hit! On this show, at least.
  Wed. 6/23/10 11:57pm john:

You just did!
  Wed. 6/23/10 11:58pm Sybil:

It is very uplifting, for a song that is really so wistful.

I'll say goodnight now, before I crash my browser yet again! Thanks for the music!
