Listener comments!

  Wed. 8/11/10 9:12pm sam:

ttsssssssttt. dean carter! yes!
  Wed. 8/11/10 9:18pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Happy Birthday, Joe!
  Wed. 8/11/10 9:20pm efd:

wait, is it his birthday?! today??
  Wed. 8/11/10 9:20pm mike sin:

Who else saw Joe Jackson perform this track at Great Adventure in NJ in 1980?!
  Wed. 8/11/10 9:21pm efd:

I saw him perform it at Hurrah in NYC in 1979, does that count?
  Wed. 8/11/10 9:25pm Danne D:

Hey funk friends :)
Have to listen at low volume at the starbucks - forgot my headphones :(

Btw, how about that Mets Bullpen! Niese is never gonna get another win :(
  Wed. 8/11/10 9:26pm Danne D:

Woohoo - Baseball Project!
You going tomorrow night EFD?
  Wed. 8/11/10 9:28pm Joe:

Well, there's only one thing left to do - invent the triple crown dance.

I'm thinking the twist but with more of a swinging motion. Possibly with a running in place section.
  Wed. 8/11/10 9:29pm Danne D:

If my friend joins me at the show it will have an odd confluence as we will each have performed with (at least) one of the performers on the bill :)
  Wed. 8/11/10 9:31pm Danne D:

After I get in, you all should go to the show - The Baseball Project folks don't come around all that often to these parts.
  Wed. 8/11/10 9:33pm Danne D:

Hope to see you there EFD.

It certainly would be an incentive for the female listeners to attend the show.
  Wed. 8/11/10 9:35pm Danne D:

(all of Evan's female commentators must already be gussying up for Evan as they don't seem to be commenting)
  Wed. 8/11/10 9:35pm Sybil:

I may well also have seen JJ at that same Hurrah's show in 79.
  Wed. 8/11/10 9:36pm Danne D:

Oh there's one - Hi Sybil :)
  Wed. 8/11/10 9:36pm Sybil:

This hussy doesn't gussy!
  Wed. 8/11/10 9:36pm Danne D:

You have no need Sybil from all that I hear :D
  Wed. 8/11/10 9:41pm Danne D:

Gussy up is such an antique reference. Not sure the last I've heard it much less used it.

I'm totally jealous of all the great shows you guys have been to.
  Wed. 8/11/10 9:41pm Sybil:

Aw, blush.
  Wed. 8/11/10 9:47pm efd:

I remember that Hurrah show was advertised as "Denson's Shoes" because he was playing another show in town the night before or night after.

I'm definitely hoping to make it to Maxwell's tomorrow, it's a great bill and I do love those Baseball Project songs.

p.s. hi everyone!
  Wed. 8/11/10 9:47pm Joe:

I ▲ Big Troubles
  Wed. 8/11/10 10:07pm frisco kid:

Oh how weird, I JUST listened to the Prince Charming album - found a copy on the sidewalk!
  Wed. 8/11/10 10:09pm efd:

That *is* weird! And who would consign an Adam & the Ants album to such a fate?!
  Wed. 8/11/10 10:14pm Danne D:

Hmm, maybe you have to find your princess - and this is in lieu of the glass slipper, frisco!
  Wed. 8/11/10 10:17pm mustard:

  Wed. 8/11/10 10:27pm Danne D:

Pleasure Kills were so awesome last week :D
  Wed. 8/11/10 10:31pm efd:

cool Danne, glad you liked them!

what up, mustard!
  Wed. 8/11/10 10:35pm Danne D:

comin' down the stretch in the fantasy baseball league :)

looks like a good battle brewing for that last playoff spot!
  Wed. 8/11/10 10:35pm Amanda:

  Wed. 8/11/10 10:36pm Amanda:

(Hi, everyone!)
  Wed. 8/11/10 10:36pm Joe:

what is this I don't even
  Wed. 8/11/10 10:37pm Danne D:

Hi Amanda :)

This is great btw! Yet another awesome EFD show :)
  Wed. 8/11/10 10:38pm Amanda:

Pete Townshend is involved in it. I will let our DJ tell us the rest.
  Wed. 8/11/10 10:40pm Danne D:

Amanda showing off her extensive musical knowledge as usual :)
  Wed. 8/11/10 10:41pm Danne D:

(just realized that if I recorded the kids behind me at the starbucks I probably would have a million great pieces to drop into matchups) Just heard like 7 "ewwws" in a row

This place is too loud :( Will have to relisten on the archive :)
  Wed. 8/11/10 10:53pm Danne D:

also I think Keili is doing a fill-in at like 3-6am on Sunday Night/Monday Morning :)
  Wed. 8/11/10 11:02pm efd:

you are correct, sir.
  Wed. 8/11/10 11:03pm Joe:

this is super dope. A+ for italo-disco-tronica
  Wed. 8/11/10 11:04pm Danne D:

I think I found the next birthday/christmas gift for Evan:v

  Wed. 8/11/10 11:04pm Joe:

  Wed. 8/11/10 11:05pm Google:

Vocalist Angie Porter was a child star, singing backing vocals on 'Video Killed The Radio Star' (no less), recording a single with Pete Townshend ('Peppermint Lump' on Stiff), and feted by LA legend, Rodney 'On The Roq' Bingenheimer (look him up).

  Wed. 8/11/10 11:06pm Danne D:

Any show that works in a Buggles reference is that much more of a winner in my book :)
  Wed. 8/11/10 11:10pm Amanda:

"When you hold me like you hold that Bakelite in your hands..."
  Wed. 8/11/10 11:17pm Danne D:

  Wed. 8/11/10 11:19pm Amanda:

haha. I got it wrong. Ahem. "When I hold you like I hold that Bakelite in my hands..."
  Wed. 8/11/10 11:21pm Danne D:

don't worry - i didn't hear the error over the drone that is this noisy starbucks :D
  Wed. 8/11/10 11:26pm efd:

Amanda, what's that quote from?
  Wed. 8/11/10 11:27pm Michael from the Left Coast:

Kickin' it old school EF
  Wed. 8/11/10 11:28pm Sybil:

There's no Action?
  Wed. 8/11/10 11:30pm Amanda:

Yes! Sybil, you got it! (Sorry, I had gone to take the trash out so I missed the question.) Elvis Costello, "No Action": "I'm not a telephone junkie..." is how the lyric starts, and I assume Bakelite is the fake plastic that the phone is made of.
  Wed. 8/11/10 11:31pm Amanda:

or... type of plastic. all plastic is fake.
  Wed. 8/11/10 11:31pm Sybil:

Bakelite is Way BETTER than plastic.
  Wed. 8/11/10 11:34pm Amanda:

This costume jewelry fan is not one to argue.
  Wed. 8/11/10 11:38pm Michael from the Left Coast:

EFD--was that Joe Jackson show referred to above at the Bottom Line ? The one previous or post the one at Hurrah? That band was smoking hot in those days--I still think Graham MAby was the most dazzling bass player I ever saw (including Jaco Pastorious).
  Wed. 8/11/10 11:41pm Michael from the Left Coast:

Sybil and Amanda--I always assumed he was talking about a guitar--old Danelectro guitars were made of Bakelite
  Wed. 8/11/10 11:42pm Danne D:

All folks up at the ungodly hour of 3-6am eastern should check out Keili's show Sunday night/Monday AM - it'll be worth it :)
  Wed. 8/11/10 11:43pm efd:

Michael, the show I saw was at Hurrah; I don't remember where the officially announced show was, though. And completely agree on Graham Maby, he was fabulous.
  Wed. 8/11/10 11:44pm efd:

I hasten to add I'm sure he still IS fabulous, I just haven't seen him in a while. But I think he lives in NJ now.
  Wed. 8/11/10 11:48pm Amanda:

Moving to NJ tends to make one yet MORE fabulous.

Michael -- this would make sense. If only I knew what he meant by "just good friends"
  Wed. 8/11/10 11:50pm Danne D:

I totally agree Amanda :)
  Wed. 8/11/10 11:51pm Michael from the Left Coast:

EFD I have seen him recently and he was just as good as he was then, but I knew what I was getting having seen him already. When I saw him with Joe Jackson that first time I had never seen a bass player play "lead bass"--it was truly stunning.
EFC--did you ever see that BBC Rock Goes to College show from the week before that? A great memorialization of that band.
  Wed. 8/11/10 11:51pm Sybil:

I lived in NJ for one year, and the fabulousness endures to this day. ;)
  Wed. 8/11/10 11:53pm Sybil:

... And I always assumed that "there's no action" referred to an incomplete harpsicord, because a friend in college had one in her room. Which led to many renditions of the song.
  Wed. 8/11/10 11:53pm Danne D:

Exactly Sybil!

Anyhow, I'm gonna have to pack up from the Starbucks. Hope you all have a great night :)

Certainly hope to see some of you fine folks at Maxwell's tomorrow night :)

Until next week Funk Friends :)

Thanks for another outstanding show Evan!
  Wed. 8/11/10 11:56pm chris_toronto:

yay, Pernice Brothers
  Wed. 8/11/10 11:57pm Michael from the Left Coast:

EFD--you familiar with the 88
This Pernice Bros track reminds me of the 88
