  Wed. 1/18/12 9:04pm Stevel:

...and a happy oo la la to you too good people.

Good evening Richard, and hello G, Holly, Stevel and Barkevious S! Thanks all for listening!

Hey now, big hello to EFD and everybody.
  Wed. 1/18/12 9:16pm Thierry:

Hi all, from overseas!
  Wed. 1/18/12 9:18pm Joe B:

hey EFD! Digging this Gardens record!
  Wed. 1/18/12 9:19pm Aharon:

Lures, Gardens, Purple Hearts...another round of eminently Googleable band name.
  Wed. 1/18/12 9:20pm Stevel:

@Aharon: Beats looking up The Men.
  Wed. 1/18/12 9:21pm Aharon:

ahem: nameS, I meant to say. Now, Moto-Gators is more like it.

@Stevel: True. In all senses!
  Wed. 1/18/12 9:22pm JMD:

Really digging this Moto-gators. What does that little guitar riff remind me of? Sounds familiar.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/18/12 9:26pm efd:

Bonsoir Thierry, and hi Destroit, Joe, Aharon and JMD! Joe, yeah, that Gardens album is good!
  Wed. 1/18/12 9:27pm Holly in NC:

Darn it, I was going to continue last week's Greek lesson! Got to move fast around here!
  Wed. 1/18/12 9:33pm Destroit:

an extremely well timed "yo yo yo" by Julie. May the birds and goth be with you!
  Wed. 1/18/12 9:35pm Julie:

that's why the yo I was hearing the theme
  Wed. 1/18/12 9:35pm G:

gazumped ya, eh? can't let the grass grow under your feet here, dude!
  Wed. 1/18/12 9:36pm Destroit:

Ha, efd, your voice actually sounds like real 'boom goes the dynamite' guy.
  Wed. 1/18/12 9:36pm Julie:

record shopping at home is the best!

The Shattered Glass 7" can be purchased for $8.

@G - NYT > Village Voice - this years Pazz & Jop is the worst I've ever seen, I think
  Wed. 1/18/12 9:42pm Joe B:

i thought wikipedia went out of business or something
  Wed. 1/18/12 9:43pm john:

Well, G, as you can doubly see, I'm not moving fast tonight!
  Wed. 1/18/12 9:43pm Stevel:

Pretty much always here on Wednesdays myself. efd, you should check your malpractice insurance, because this is probably my best therapy option.
  Wed. 1/18/12 9:44pm Holly in NC:

Speaking of Wiki's blackout, anyone on Twiiter needs to check

Banging my head on the table...

this is pret good
  Wed. 1/18/12 9:47pm john:

I've known more than one biologist who was a music nerd, but this album title makes me wonder if we don't have at least one musician in Palomar who's a molecular biology nerd...and they're great!
  Wed. 1/18/12 9:48pm Destroit:

Good show, I like what I'm hearing, but am I totally clueless? very limited knowledge on most of the artists tonight.
  Wed. 1/18/12 9:49pm Julie:

@Des i feel the same way when I listen!
  Wed. 1/18/12 9:51pm G:

sorry, was loading the dishwasher... yes, holly! john, i'm moving fast enough, but multitasking so i'm on- and off-page...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/18/12 9:51pm efd:

@Destroit & Julie, honestly I feel the same way when I listen to most other WFMU shows!
  Wed. 1/18/12 9:52pm Stevel:

Destroit/Julie: Me too, and I was a pretty heavy listener, especially in the early 80s. But it often fills in gaps. I love it most when I hear a song that I haven't heard in, well, a long long time.
  Wed. 1/18/12 9:52pm Destroit:

It's a good feeling Julie. Downright spectacular show the other night. So many memories.
  Wed. 1/18/12 9:52pm Julie:

@EFD yep pretty much. We of the offbeat music collections
  Wed. 1/18/12 9:52pm Andrea-in-DC:

I want to roller skate to this...
  Wed. 1/18/12 9:53pm Julie:

@Des thank you!

yes roller skating music!
  Wed. 1/18/12 9:53pm Stevel:

efd: That's an advantage of WFMU's "None of the hits all of the time" approach. It opens up the vaults like no other source I know.
  Wed. 1/18/12 9:54pm Destroit:

Awesome. Confirmed I'm not clueless; and lol Andrea.
  Wed. 1/18/12 9:54pm Randy in NC:

There is more music out there than can be listened to in many lifetimes...

@Andrea, not sure if the Wal-Lex rink is still open...
  Wed. 1/18/12 9:55pm Randy in NC:

The Wal-Lex???
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/18/12 9:57pm efd:

uh-oh, didn't see you come in, Randy in NC but formerly of greater Boston!
  Wed. 1/18/12 9:57pm Holly in NC:

Hi Randy! Ready for a chilly evening? I just retrieved extra fleece, fingerless gloves & my lucky Duke hat. Opened all the cabinets. All systems go!

@efd - SO good!
  Wed. 1/18/12 9:58pm PB:

To follow up on Randy's point, I remember once reading somewhere (can't recall where) that there are roughly 20,000 new releases per year in the US alone.
  Wed. 1/18/12 9:58pm joey p:

didnt know the smithereens still existed
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/18/12 10:00pm efd:

@joey, they never stopped existing! 30 years and counting!

Randy and PB, you both make excellent points. No one's gonna know it all, not even at WFMU. Except Brian.
  Wed. 1/18/12 10:00pm G:

smithereens _2011_ has been getting a decent amount of airplay on FMU since it came out last spring
  Wed. 1/18/12 10:01pm Randy in NC:

Hi efd, all, I used to go to the Wal-Lex, when I was a kid I lived right near there. As I remember, there was the rink, a candle pin bowling alley and a miniature golf place, right? Birthday party city...
  Wed. 1/18/12 10:02pm James in ATL:

Yes, 45's are from ATL
  Wed. 1/18/12 10:03pm Destroit:

Same here Joey, just another nugget. NC, both holly & Randy, hello. Going to buzzing around Raleigh every once in a while for job reasons, looking forward to exploring a new state.
  Wed. 1/18/12 10:03pm G:

for those not in the know:
"The Wal-Lex Recreation Center, or simply Wal-Lex, was an entertainment complex located in Waltham, Massachusetts which operated from 1947 until 2002. Considered a landmark in Waltham and the surrounding area, Wal-Lex consisted of a 60-lane candlepin bowling facility, a rollerskating rink, billiard tables, and video games. It also featured mini-golf until 1985."

  Wed. 1/18/12 10:05pm Julie:

the Bebe album I have is awful
  Wed. 1/18/12 10:06pm Julie:

no she is the mother of Liv Tyler
  Wed. 1/18/12 10:06pm G:

i just have a lot of research experience, so i find crap fast if it aint brain-stored (which often it ain't)
  Wed. 1/18/12 10:07pm Destroit:

I thought he said Bebe neuwerth (sp?) and freaked out for 3 seconds.
  Wed. 1/18/12 10:07pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Mommy of Rock 'n Roll?
  Wed. 1/18/12 10:10pm Holly in NC:

My housemate thinks Bebe Neuwirth is the sexiest woman ever. I don't know if he's familiar with Bebe Buell.
  Wed. 1/18/12 10:10pm Randy in NC:

@G: Thanks, I used to ride my bike there. And of course the closest Stop and Shop was next door. It's too bad there is no picture of the rink. It had this really cool 50's flying saucer look as I recall.
  Wed. 1/18/12 10:10pm Stevel:

How many steps?
  Wed. 1/18/12 10:12pm Julie:

13 steps to 13 women?
  Wed. 1/18/12 10:12pm Barkevious Shabazz:

I think she meant grandmother of rocknroll.
  Wed. 1/18/12 10:12pm G:

  Wed. 1/18/12 10:14pm Danne D:

Hi Funk Fans :)

Hi Evan, I'm enjoying One for Wednesday :)
  Wed. 1/18/12 10:14pm Destroit:

Well, put it this way, I kinda agree with your housemate (not 'ever' but a certain appeal). Once I heard Bebe on the radio, the magic was gone. Radiation is good.
  Wed. 1/18/12 10:16pm Holly in NC:

Big grin ! I have so gotten over my being too cool for Echo & the Bunnymen! Smiling madly now :-)

Hi Danne!
  Wed. 1/18/12 10:17pm T-Zero:

Evening, Funk.

Good for you Holly!

  Wed. 1/18/12 10:19pm Destroit:

Hello Danne, T-zero, and I agree with you holly. I used to dismiss echo, and similar bands, different disposition these days.

A friend just passed along that Apache Dropout will be in Fort Wayne, IN Feb 25! Brass Rail. Life is better.
  Wed. 1/18/12 10:26pm Holly in NC:

Let me clarify. I LOVED Crocodiles in high school - which was a very avant liking in suburban Connecticut. Then in college and colllege radio, I got into that 'if more than 3 people know about a band it sucks' thing... don't tell me some of y'all haven't been there!

I'm working on it;-)
  Wed. 1/18/12 10:27pm Julie:

you grew up in the CT suburbs? Fairfield county?
  Wed. 1/18/12 10:29pm Randy in NC:

@G: Thanks, that's exactly as I remember it.
  Wed. 1/18/12 10:30pm Holly in NC:

N'Haven county.

Milford,to be exact.
  Wed. 1/18/12 10:30pm PB:

There is a relatively new band (formed in 08) called the Crocodiles, one of the members of whom is, I believe, married to Dee Dee of the Dum Dum Girls.
  Wed. 1/18/12 10:31pm miss cheri:

  Wed. 1/18/12 10:40pm PB:

efd, Summer of Hate which I believe was released in 09 or 10 has one great track, I Wanna Kill, and some other good ones. 2nd album was released, I think, in 2011.

Nice going so far, EFD. (I'm lurking close to the radio but not so close to the computer.)

Wasn't Bebe Buell a groupie who became Todd Rundgren's girlfriend.

  Wed. 1/18/12 11:02pm Julie:

no the original skanque was Miss Pamela
  Wed. 1/18/12 11:04pm Barkevious Shabazz:

@Julie Who she?
  Wed. 1/18/12 11:04pm 70s TV Fan:

was she almost famous?
  Wed. 1/18/12 11:05pm Holly in NC:

Bebe Buell is all-encompassing.
Liv was raised believing Todd R was her dad -I wonder how often she heard "gee,you look just like that dude from Aerosmith, except you're pretty"
  Wed. 1/18/12 11:05pm Julie:

@Bark she did EVERY rock guy in the 60s and 70s. Wrote a book called I'm with the Band, Pamela Des barres. She was in zappa's GTO's
  Wed. 1/18/12 11:05pm Barkevious Shabazz:

  Wed. 1/18/12 11:06pm Holly in NC:

Des Barres! She's With The Band! (book is guilty pleasure)
  Wed. 1/18/12 11:06pm john:

OK, now THAT was an inspired cover version. I'll be so disappointed if I find out it's just a bunch o'guys who never learned that irony was so 20th century.

That was a Nirvana cover version. Speechless.
  Wed. 1/18/12 11:12pm Holly in NC:

Which one can get as a free download from Spin Magazine. Jaw on floor.
  Wed. 1/18/12 11:12pm PB:

Speaking of Nirvana covers, Patti Smith does a seriously slowed down cover of Smells Like Teen Spirit to banjo accompaniment. It's tremendous.
  Wed. 1/18/12 11:12pm john:

Evan, well, awwright! And the Charles Bradley album came out a year ago, and is awesome.
  Wed. 1/18/12 11:13pm Barkevious Shabazz:

My resolution for 2012 is to see the Scum of the Earth episode of WKRP. The aging punk 's Citizen Kane?

  Wed. 1/18/12 11:15pm Holly in NC:

Now that it's over, I can take a moment to comment on the sheer awesomeness of that Section 25 12in.
Mr.Chop here is great too, so less typing more grooving!
  Wed. 1/18/12 11:35pm Holly in NC:

I don't think I've ever heard anything but 'Brother Louie' from these guys before - now I'm intrigued.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/18/12 11:42pm efd:

@Holly, they're worth investigating further! Glad you dug the Section 25!
  Wed. 1/18/12 11:42pm john:

Oh, there's a lot to be intrigued about with Stories, starting with the fact that the original driving force was Michael Brown of The Left Banke, but he was gone by the time they covered (and had the big US hit with) Hot Chocolate's Brother Louie.

ex-Oasis, sounding like Tears for Fears, kinda sorta

Hey Efd, I got the new Gap Dream album and it's really good- thanks for your recommendation last week

Hi Yair, that's great! Glad you like it, thanks for letting me know (and for listening).
  Wed. 1/18/12 11:52pm Holly in NC:

This is the definitely reissue of the year to date!
  Wed. 1/18/12 11:56pm john:

This was my #1 reissue of 2011, for what that's worth! Must have played it a dozen times in a row as soon as I tore the package open.
  Wed. 1/18/12 11:57pm Thierry:

bar/none .. get them all!

That Hot Knives came out in 2011 - might have to be grandfathered in for 2012!
  Wed. 1/18/12 11:59pm Holly in NC:

Thanks for another stellar show, efd!!!!!!!!!
  Thu. 1/19/12 12:00am G:

over already????????????
  Thu. 1/19/12 12:00am john:

I was voting for Human Switchboard, not that I went to the trouble of making it clear or anything, Bob Pfeifer's recent rather icky legal woes notwithstanding.
  Thu. 1/19/12 12:01am Randy in NC:

efd, Thanks for the Wal-Lex memories, and the gread show!
  Thu. 1/19/12 12:03am Randy in NC:

Ugh, great...

Evan, useless fact, I used to work with No Dice's singer Roger Ferris' dad Eddie in the Seventies. They were London based. Lose no sleep chasing their back catalogue!!! Forgotten all 'bout them until now.
  Thu. 1/19/12 11:01am efd:

  Thu. 1/19/12 11:02am efd:

seriously, though, I think that's actually a pretty useful fact! That album really isn't bad.
  Thu. 1/19/12 11:12am Brian in UK:

My Name in MICHAEL CAINE!!!Coincidentially, I've just remembered that there was another guy in the bookshop called Tony Conway who had a band called Security Risk followed by Mood Six. He wrote the B side of 'Mickey' by Toni Basil called 'Hangin' Around'. They were more psych revival. I remember hearing his demo of Hangin' Around then Toni Basil's version. What could be done with proper arranging!!
  Thu. 1/19/12 11:20am efd:

Ohh, I love Mood Six and especially "Hanging Around" and "Just Like A Dream!" I can't believe in all this time I never knew Toni Basil covered it!
  Thu. 1/19/12 11:35am Brian in UK:

There is a British group called Animal Kingdom had an album out last year. I thought they sounded like Mood Six at times. Not sure if anyone else did though. You know when you catch little nuances and it triggers memories, as The Temptations sang Just my imagination running away with me.
