Listener comments!

  Wed. 3/23/11 9:06pm Joe:

I really messed up in making Young American's my first David Bowie album, I think.
  Wed. 3/23/11 9:06pm minnesota jeff:

Haven't been able to listen to EFD Live in a while, so stoked!
  Wed. 3/23/11 9:08pm efd:

Hey Jeff, nice to have you here live!

Joe, messed up in what way?
  Wed. 3/23/11 9:14pm Joe:

in retrospect, it seems like a really bad place to pick up the thread... it definitely put me off him for a while. Hunky Dory or The Man Who Sold the World would've hooked me proper.
  Wed. 3/23/11 9:15pm calzone!:

It's amazing how much Simple Minds ripped off LCD Soundsystem!
  Wed. 3/23/11 9:17pm calzone!:

He say's with Irony....
  Wed. 3/23/11 9:17pm randy in NC:

@calzone! Yeah and Roxy Music, Brian Eno, and Talking Heads also ripped of LCDSS too...
  Wed. 3/23/11 9:18pm minnesota jeff:

EFD, you should make a note to bust out the single "Gimmie your Heart" by The Subs. I ordered that single off ebay 2 seconds after the song finished during your show once.
  Wed. 3/23/11 9:18pm calzone!:

New Order owes him a bundle too!
  Wed. 3/23/11 9:19pm randy in NC:

But ya know what, I have the latest LCDSS and if you could wear out a CD, mine would be.
  Wed. 3/23/11 9:26pm efd:

Jeff, funny you mention that- I just saw that record tonight when I was getting some stuff together at home. I'll make sure it doesn't get too far out of sight.
  Wed. 3/23/11 9:30pm calzone!:

I actually love that LCD disc too! Nice set thus far, EFD!
  Wed. 3/23/11 9:31pm Skirkie:

♥ this song. Oh, and go my team.
  Wed. 3/23/11 9:32pm randy in NC:

efd, I assume you might be hearing this this W/E, along with September Gurls and a few other choice jewels...
  Wed. 3/23/11 9:33pm mrmucho:

that fill Jody Stephens does at the end of the bridge is the greatest thing ever
  Wed. 3/23/11 9:34pm Skirkie:

This is odd, but for some reason, unless I maintain proper posture at my computer, the radio goes staticy.
  Wed. 3/23/11 9:41pm phat:

Yes, that is the greatest fill.
  Wed. 3/23/11 9:56pm SF Spike:

Hooray for Fancy Space People! See them live if you can - it's cosmic!
  Wed. 3/23/11 9:57pm Joe:

i need that EP....
  Wed. 3/23/11 9:57pm minnesota jeff:

I misheard the Rantouls song as "theres a fat indian" at first, then all I could hear in the Fancy Space People Song was "an indian youth"
  Wed. 3/23/11 10:02pm cheri:

hiya evan & danne hows it goin??? i've been on vacay,,anytime happen while i was gone???
  Wed. 3/23/11 10:04pm cheri:

danne? are you here tonight?
  Wed. 3/23/11 10:13pm efd:

hi Cheri, all you missed was the big annual fundraising marathon, nbw.
  Wed. 3/23/11 10:13pm JMD:

Who's time machine? Oh, William Chalker's?
  Wed. 3/23/11 10:17pm cheri:

i'm really sorry i missed it evan,,please forgive me,,evan,,,
  Wed. 3/23/11 10:19pm Skirkie:

Maybe you'll have to get some musicians to make a new jingle for this said ticket bubble bath.
  Wed. 3/23/11 10:29pm cheri:

evan--i even heard that the hoof & mouth finale was bad assed,,
  Wed. 3/23/11 10:29pm Danne D:

Hey Funk Fans :)
Hey EFD :)
Hi Cheri - you missed out on the marathon but you (or anyone else who forgot/missed the marathon can still pledge to WFMU right here:
  Wed. 3/23/11 10:30pm efd:

well, it IS still *formerly* known as the Midnight TIcket Oasis. (If this were Twitter I'd add "#loophole"
  Wed. 3/23/11 10:30pm Raisable Funds:

Cheri and Me: Perfect Together
  Wed. 3/23/11 10:31pm Skirkie:

I've been SO into Spanish language hip hop the last two weeks. How the HELL did you know that?
  Wed. 3/23/11 10:33pm Danne D:

Glad I'm inside now. You aren't kidding about the nasty weather. Woulda never been driving in it except I got stuck working late :(

EFD - you are quite the twitterer of late. You reminded me of, well me, a little during Tom's show last night :D

Psyched about the baseball league. Will more or less finish my autodraft list tonight with my secret formula. Glad the fighting Skirkies are involved this year - the Sliders seem like a natural rival to the New Jersey Knuckles. Though traditional rivals like Aharon's Long Bawls will be stout competition as well.
  Wed. 3/23/11 10:35pm Danne D:

Evan - I think I have found your bubble bath theme song...
  Wed. 3/23/11 10:35pm pedant:

Sholdn't that be "formerly known as 'formerly known as the Midnight Ticket Oasis?' "
  Wed. 3/23/11 10:36pm Danne D:

Btw, Evan is your team still going to be the Bernie Carbo Loaders this year?
  Wed. 3/23/11 10:37pm cheri:

evan please don't be angey with me,,
  Wed. 3/23/11 10:38pm cheri:

  Wed. 3/23/11 10:40pm Goats Head Soup:

Angey, angey, I still love you, remember all those nights we cried?
  Wed. 3/23/11 10:41pm Holly in NC:

Hi everyone! Just missed Control Machete + Apple & the Oranges, which pains me no end. Yay for archives - I want to check the segue ;-)
  Wed. 3/23/11 10:42pm Danne D:

Hi Holly :)
The archives will make you happy - the show has kicked ass all along the way!
  Wed. 3/23/11 10:42pm Danne D:

Noah is yet another one of WFMU's good guys like EFD :)
  Wed. 3/23/11 10:44pm Holly in NC:

Noah (and his show) is/are wonderful.
  Wed. 3/23/11 10:45pm Skirkie:

Just spent a large part of my office day listening to Noah's fill in for Keili,
  Wed. 3/23/11 10:45pm ?:

re Noah's show: It's hip, and it hops.
  Wed. 3/23/11 10:46pm Danne D:

Yeah, that fill-in is on the agenda for tomorrow :)
I hope that Keili is feeling better and back on Sunday morning though :(
  Wed. 3/23/11 10:49pm calzone!:

I dig that dreamy psych supercluster sound! Beep Beep, Well Well!
  Wed. 3/23/11 10:52pm john:

I liked that supercluster track too! But there was a point in the middle I did a double-take because I could have sworn Vanessa was really Mitch Easter.
  Wed. 3/23/11 10:53pm minnesota jeff:

Yeeeeeaaahhhhhhh, SWEET!
  Wed. 3/23/11 10:55pm G:

That was very sweet of efd...
  Wed. 3/23/11 10:55pm Holly in NC:

I'm totally digging the Terror Birds' black-haired 80s vibe. Must explore.
  Wed. 3/23/11 10:58pm ?:

well evan & danne got to split,, see you guys soon g'nite,,
  Wed. 3/23/11 10:59pm cheri:

oops sorry guys
  Wed. 3/23/11 10:59pm ?:

  Wed. 3/23/11 11:00pm Holly in NC:

Jacuzzi boys live will be awesome. Looking forward to next week!
  Wed. 3/23/11 11:02pm Holly in NC:

Say what one will about JW, every 'live at 3rd man' lp I've heard is really good.
  Wed. 3/23/11 11:06pm Danne D:

G'night Cheri :)

Evan, do check out the song that I linked - I think it'll be good for the purpose.

It's by Swiss - the song is called Bubble Bath :)

  Wed. 3/23/11 11:06pm Newt Hoenikker:

No Cat! No Cradle!
  Wed. 3/23/11 11:07pm Danne D:

Though the Jacuzzi Boys sound like a group that could do a good bubble bath song.
  Wed. 3/23/11 11:07pm minnesota jeff:

Was James "Blood" Ulmer in Living Colour???
  Wed. 3/23/11 11:10pm Danne D:

That sounds awesome - alas I am going to the US vs Argentina game that night.

Btw that's friend of WFMU Ira Kaplan :)
  Wed. 3/23/11 11:12pm randy in NC:

@MJ - no
  Wed. 3/23/11 11:15pm minnesota jeff:

randy in NC: EFD was referencing a John Wurster joke which I believe was in reference to the Living Colour video where the singer was wearing a sleevless wet suit. So I am confused by EFDs reference of the Wurster joke.

Also, this new Killing Joke is pretty rad!
  Wed. 3/23/11 11:15pm cheri:

ohhh i almost forgot,,,evan & danne you guys rock!!!!!!
  Wed. 3/23/11 11:19pm efd:

MN Jeff, Vernon Reid of Living Color is apparently in James Blood Ulmer's band, hence the reference. Although it doesn't quite hold together since Reid was not the wetsuit-wearer.
  Wed. 3/23/11 11:22pm almondjoysgotnuts:

  Wed. 3/23/11 11:22pm randy in NC:

I saw Blood Ulmer back in the early/mid '80's at Irving Plaza. Very angular stuff.
  Wed. 3/23/11 11:35pm Danne D:

Evan with the "Well of Sound" sound effect there.
  Wed. 3/23/11 11:35pm Danne D:

252 players ranked so far for the fantasy draft...
  Wed. 3/23/11 11:38pm cheri:

evan & danne i'll see you two in 2 more weeks thnx efd
  Wed. 3/23/11 11:40pm keano:

Evan, is there still room in the fantasy baseball league?
  Wed. 3/23/11 11:40pm AZ:

EFD--been listening intermittently for the last several hours: such a goddam great show...
  Wed. 3/23/11 11:41pm efd:

thanks AZ!

Keano, I'm afraid not - I already had to turn people away as commenteer Cal Zone will (hopefully not bitterly) confirn.
  Wed. 3/23/11 11:43pm Danne D:

gnight cheri!
  Wed. 3/23/11 11:43pm Danne D:

Evan's getting so big he might have to do 2 listener leagues ;)
  Wed. 3/23/11 11:47pm minnesota jeff:

Oh man, yes, CALE! I love John Cales solo stuff so much.
  Wed. 3/23/11 11:49pm efd:

Some of it tends to be a little morose for my taste. This does not. :)
  Wed. 3/23/11 11:52pm minnesota jeff:

All I know is that "Caribbean Sunset" has a real bad rap, but I love it. Even if he is audibly telling his backing band the cord changes during the recording.
  Wed. 3/23/11 11:53pm Danne D:

Find it funny that a war song would be seen by Evan as not being too morose ;)
  Wed. 3/23/11 11:54pm randy in NC:

I knew it!
  Wed. 3/23/11 11:54pm Danne D:

I heard this song is about Evan Davies.
  Wed. 3/23/11 11:54pm Holly in NC:

oh c'mon, c'mom, c'mon ,,,,
  Wed. 3/23/11 11:55pm minnesota jeff:

EFD - Did you know Joe Belock followed your lead and played this song twice in a row last week?
  Wed. 3/23/11 11:55pm randy in NC:

I don't believe these guys are from the '60's.
  Wed. 3/23/11 11:55pm Danne D:

  Wed. 3/23/11 11:56pm efd:

ha, yes, I was listening! Although I'm pretty sure he thought of it independently.
  Wed. 3/23/11 11:56pm Danne D:

Thanks for another fantastic show Evan!

Have a great night everyone!
  Wed. 3/23/11 11:57pm randy in NC:

Nobody rawked like this, not the Stones, not the Yardbirds, Small Faces, MC5, nobody. Nobody made MTV videos in the '60's either...
  Thu. 3/24/11 12:01am Danne D:

Loving the Evan-Noah collaboration on this throw :)
  Thu. 3/24/11 12:03am Yeah:

Put the needle on the Noah!
