efd's avatar View efd's profile Options

Every show starts with the ’70s! We’ll rediscover forgotten rockers, revisit unfairly maligned disco beats and replay power-pop favorites. Next: plenty of new releases, occasional live bands and more. Don’t let the nickname confuse you.

Fifth comment...moo
  9:13pm john:

Hey Evan!

Remember when it was actually considered cool to sound like a cross between Michael Stipe and Elvis Costello?
  9:14pm ok then:


claims 1989 as year, and the album was recorded in NJ...
  9:18pm cheri:

evan you know how you could make this last regular show special?---play more 70s music
  9:19pm hint:

it's free form

great show so far!
  9:21pm the Swami:

Is McFadden singing phonetically, like Abba?
  9:22pm efd:

Hey everyone! thanks for listening and commenting - I'll be joining in presently.
  9:25pm Lisa Jane P:

Hi, Evan and everyone. Happy Holiday Season.
  9:25pm john the usage cop:

Thousands of extra credit points for using "presently" correctly when nobody else will. Proceed directly to Go, collect Carl Crawford.
  9:25pm Cliff Lee:

Phillies, the once and future kings. Bet on it.
  9:26pm mike:

Willie Wilson went to high school with my Dad.
  9:30pm Lisa Jane P:

  9:33pm john the usage cop:

Hope Cliff Lee can hit, because the Phils are gonna have to start batting pitchers cleanup...
  9:33pm Cliff Lee:

  9:36pm spoony:

still recovering from the Four Loko fest last night, Spoony?

Thanks for checking in, LJP, mike, Swami, cheri, and john tuc!
  9:48pm Joe B:

When asked if he preferred the new astroturf on the field at the Houston Astrodome to real grass, Tug McGraw said, "I don't know, I never smoked AstroTurf".
  9:48pm spoony:

"Listless" doesn't even begin to describe it, Evan. Trying to sleep with that crap in your body is like trying to relax while someone is yelling at you.
  9:51pm efd:

confidential to Joe B. re your earlier email: Yes. absolutely!
  9:52pm cheri:

  10:16pm Madi H:

The shows I saw were all about Annies anatomy.
  10:33pm ADL:

I'm very late to Orange Juice, but I love everything I've heard from them. Do you think it's wrong to place them, taxonomically, near Talking Heads?
  10:47pm efd:

Personally I don't tend to think of Orange Juice and Talking Heads together, but don't let that stop you!
  10:50pm cheri:

well evan it's my very final comment of the year ,,it's been sooo much fun hanging out with you thanx for the music & mayhem,,, see you in 2011,,(say hi to danne for me),,,
  10:53pm seang:

the only thing I can think of is that David Byrne was born in Scotland, cool show efd!
  10:56pm efd:

thanks, seang!

Cheri, enjoy the holidays and see you next year. I have every degree of faith that we will see no further comments from you in 2010.
  10:58pm ?:

i'm not holding my breath. i give it maybe 15 minutes.
  11:01pm ADL:

Hmmm, interesting; OJ's semi-falsetto vocals and unwonky polyrhythms sound a lot like 1980ish TH to me. But then again, that Boris/Ian Asybury sounds like A Sunny Day in Glasgow to me, and that's not exactly a band that jumps out as an influence on anyone (or lacks for cognates). Anyway, enjoying the show!
  11:03pm ADL:

Though maybe those crazy Philly kids were listening to the Cult and Japanese guitar-mayhem bands. Okay, backing away from the Linnaeusator.
  11:19pm Holly in NC:

Arriving home late on a VERY frigid evening - arctic-era Bowie making me VERY happy :-)
  11:24pm efd:

cool, glad you enjoyed hearing that Holly!
  11:29pm randy in NC:

Holly has it right. It is certainly frigid here in the south.
  11:29pm meato:

  11:31pm Holly in NC:

Hey Randy in NC - where are you? I'm in Durham. And now enjoying Scattered Order while waiting for my car to be towed (from my driveway, thankfully...)
  11:34pm efd:

what up, meato?

It's pretty much frigid everywhere, it seems, although I'll allow that it's more unusual in NC and points south.

ADL, my advice to you is don't overthink it! :)
  11:36pm Brooklyn:

currently 27F, wind 15 mph, gusts to 30, wind chill 15
  11:36pm randy in NC:

Cary. Kids are looking forward to going to school 2 hours late tomorrow. For what will likely be just a dusting...
  11:38pm Joshua K:

Got this fancy wfmu app on my new iPod touch. Very nice.
  11:38pm randy in NC:

currently 29F here, at least its not windy...
  11:42pm meato:

  11:45pm efd:

meato, I assume your "whoah" was in response to the air horn, not the North Carolina temperatures.
  11:49pm Holly in NC:

@Randy - while I've now lived here longer than I lived up north, as a born & bred New Englander I'll _never_ fully get the school delays here, but yay for your kids ;-).

I also remember half- school days in Durham due to HEAT before ac was installed in (most) schools..that was really alien to a newbie southerner!
  12:00am randy in NC:

@ Holly AC must be one of the main factors that contributed to the rapid growth of the south in the last 30 or 40 years.
