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.

Options April 25, 2012: TERRY MALTS live set!

Listen to this show:  Pop‑up player! | Add or read comments

As far as we know, Terry Malts haven't co-opted the old "Blondie Is A Group" tag line/rallying cry, but they might want to consider it. The Bay Area three-piece -- which includes no one named "Terry" OR "Malts" -- bring their distortion-filled punky pop to WFMU as they hit the east coast in support of their fine new full-length, Killing Time (Slumberland). If you enjoy simple catchy punk rock songs covered with a nice fuzzy blanket of... well, fuzz, then check out this live set.

Hey everyone! Thanks for tuning in - Terry Malts live set coming up in about 20 minutes!
  9:11pm miss cheri:

so holly how was your week?
  9:13pm Mike East:

Hey Holly and everyone. Glad the live set is early...don't know how long I can make it tonight. 20 more minutes is do-able. Great set so far, efd.
  9:14pm Bigass Palmetto Bug:

I gained three grams this week, and I can't fit into anything.
  9:15pm Holly in NC:

whoa. (joy division)

fine, cheri!
  9:15pm Randy in NC:

Hi all, been a while since I've been here!
  9:16pm kate:

sweet! totally in the mood for this song. you always know how to bring the funk on wednesdays, efd!
  9:18pm P-90:

One of the best Joy Division tracks. It beams me right back to the 80's.
  9:19pm Holly in NC:

Hi Randy!
Bigass, you must be staying in a house with better trash than mine. I hope your new friends are treating you well.
  9:20pm Bigass Palmetto Bug:

I was just trying to help you out there :-)

I have lots of relatives, and they are very mobile.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:22pm efd:

Randy! Nice seeing you here! Hi Kate, hi P-90, glad you guys enjoyed the Joy Division song.

And greetings as well to Misty, Holly, Mike East, cheri, and all the rest of you who are looking on!
  9:23pm PB:

Haven't been around for a few weeks (computer malfuntion). Good to be back. Looking forward to Terry Malts.
  9:23pm Destroit:

Man this comment board always fills up quickly. Hello all good people.
  9:27pm Jimmy A-Z:

Hi all... Good evening, efd...
  9:28pm Randy in NC:

Been traveling mostly and listening on the archive.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:35pm efd:

Greetings Destroit, PB and Jimmy! Thanks for listening!
  9:36pm keving:

saw these guys at Mercury Lounge on Friday night after hearing you play them last week. rad!
  9:36pm Aharon:

The TMs were great and very warmly received at the Mercury Lounge on Friday. The book I read on the subway there mentioned the Black Flag song "Six Pack," apropos of very little else in the narrative. Then they played it for their encore! Wheels within wheels...
  9:39pm kate:

this is an amazing set, wish i would have caught them at mercury lounge!
  9:45pm Barkevious Shabazz:

More pink flag than black. Tanfastic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:46pm efd:

Great that you guys saw them, keving and Aharon, and glad they got a good response. They actually said the Mercury show was the better of the two in NYC.

kate, you'll catch 'em next time!
  9:46pm PB:

Bark, as in Wire?
  9:48pm Barkevious Shabazz:

@PB Roger.
  9:58pm Mike East:

non stop rock!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:59pm efd:

aw Mike, you jinxed it! ;)
  10:00pm Mike East:

hahaha! I did! It was fun while it lasted.
  10:01pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Ooh ooh, I just got home from my radio show in time to hear EFD! And the last few moments of Terry Malts. Sounded great! And I hear the engineer is really cute.
  10:04pm Mike East:

hey Wendy! I was talking to Carly as SIR and she clued me in to your relation to sed engineer. The world is very small, indeed.
  10:05pm PB:

Game 7 of Caps-Bruins going to OT. Time to take the dog for a quick walk.
  10:06pm cubicle carl:

That was a great terry malts set.
  10:08pm Randy in NC:

They rawked it.
  10:12pm Barkevious Shabazz:

I think my ears got herpes from Rosa. Dirty broad.
  10:12pm Holly in NC:

"post-pink" love it! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:13pm efd:

haha, whoops! fixed!
  10:14pm Danne D:

I might archive the whole thing tonight :(
Depends on this game 7 overtime :)
  10:14pm Randy in NC:

efd, a nice interview with Chris Stamey in the local weekly paper. Check it out later.

  10:14pm cubicle carl:

...and great sound on that live set as well. You could definitely hear that signature Luttman wall of sound.
  10:14pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Mike East! Carly is a great gal. Yes, the engineer is my fella, and the world is teensy. I kinda like it that way. Makes it easy to get around and meet people.
  10:15pm Danne D:

(Btw I pick Ovi to get the winner for the Caps)
  10:15pm Wendy del Formaggio:

"Luttman wall of sound"! I'm kvelling!
  10:19pm Mike East:

for sure. I sit at her old desk at Carroll. I think I was subrenting something from her and mentioned that I saw Glenn on the Best Show marathon videostream. He kept popping up right in front of the camera! It was great! He does run a nice sound board.
  10:20pm ?:

hey there danne,,,
  10:20pm SteveL:

A record breaking evening at the efd show!
  10:22pm miss cheri:

evan--killer show as always!!!
  10:23pm Danne D:

  10:28pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Mike East, ah you work at Carroll's. That explains it! Yeah, Glenn seems to be Tom's marathon engineer of choice. I'm proud of the work my fella does. I wonder if he's reading this? :-)
  10:30pm Danne D:

okay I'm here now everyone :) Hooray for the Capitals.
  10:31pm Mike East:

made a few attempts at the Tribecca Film Fest last weekend. Waited on line for an hour and didn't get in the first time, but then on the next try got a pair of free tickets...so it balanced out.

@Wendy - that has to be the coolest of all WFMU volunteer spots. He's lucky he got it, and Tom's lucky to have him.
  10:32pm miss cheri:

what's happening danne??
  10:34pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Don't know if I liked Miguel + swell or Unnatural Helpers more. Damned fine progrim as usual.
  10:34pm Danne D:

The Capitals beat the Bruins cheri that's what's happening.
Hopefully the Devils and Senators follow suit tomorrow and my Devils get a home-ice advantage series :)
  10:37pm miss cheri:

evan tonight's show is really kick ass!!!
  10:37pm Danne D:

Dave Edmunds :)
cool :)
  10:38pm Danne D:

Remember the great video for this with footage of sprint cars (the dirt-track kind - small "s")
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:43pm efd:

Randy, thanks for the interview link.

Danne, I must admit that I don't recall that video! But I didn't have MTV until several years after that record came out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:44pm efd:

Barkevious, thanks! Glad you're enjoying the show!
  10:47pm miss cheri:

evan?? your not commenting with me anymore tonight?
  10:48pm john:

Thank you for closing the parentheses. One can be OCD about grammar.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:51pm efd:

sorry cheri, I did not realize I was supposed to acknowledge every comment. Glad you're enjoying the show.
  10:52pm Rachelz:

I love that Miguel + Ocean swell song! Wanna hear more. And also agree I liked unnatural helpers too like Barkevious. Long time listner first time commentor.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:58pm efd:

Rachelz (is the z silent?), if you go to the link I posted you can stream the whole album, and subsequently buy it if you're so inclined. Welcome to the comments!
  10:59pm Destroit:

Thanks for this great Adamson track.
  11:01pm miss cheri:

i'm sorry if i'm bugging you,,evan i could split if you want me to,,
  11:03pm kate:

good jam! for some reason all things "cat" are awesome
  11:09pm SteveL:

Dare to play Ringo! The story of rebellion in a free-form world.
  11:14pm Barkevious Shabazz:

The 2am show is Ludmilla Soboslai bribing a Soviet official.
  11:18pm Danne D:

The aforementioned Dave Edmunds for your viewing pleasure (after Evan's show of course) :)
  11:18pm Rachelz:

The Z is like s! Thanks efd. Checking that link out after tonight's show!
  11:21pm john:

Jaz' current resemblance to Scent Of A Woman-era Al Pacino may be the band's most chilling aspect. Hoo-ah!
  11:22pm miss cheri:

well i have to split anyway evan & danne,,g'night all ohh evan thnx having me!
  11:25pm Danne D:

take care cheri
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:25pm efd:

goodnight cheri
  11:27pm Barkevious Shabazz:

The backing vocals on trex's slider and electronic warrior really made em great. A rare distinction.
  11:28pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Electric already.
  11:38pm Jessica:

Yowza, Infinities sound like Chrome, if [no, I'm way too grateful/once upon privileged of weird inner circles to sling even metacryptoentendres anywhere that might graze Helios] and the Buzzcocks made them breakfast.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:43pm efd:

Hi Jessica! yeah, that whole Infinity People album is a trip and a half!
  11:48pm john:

Sox win assisted by a hideous call in the Twins 9th on a foul ball that the first base ump sitting right on top of it called fair. Replays and every conceivable law of physics proved it foul, and not really that close.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:50pm efd:

oh brother. Well, under the circumstances, I'll take it! ;)
  11:50pm Danne D:

@John - can of corn save for Aceves there :)

PS - I approve of the call ;)
  11:55pm Danne D:

Haven't heard this in too long :)
  11:55pm Danne D:

Btw, EFD, any good Fake Bobby Valentine twitter feeds I should be following?
  11:56pm Jessica:

This song nearly mitigates the hair and suspenders thing. From 2 rooms down, over a tinny mono speaker.
  11:57pm john:

Spoken like a true fantasy owner of Aceves there, Danne! I'm just stumped how a ball Gonzalez nearly caught in the dugout could have been called fair...btw, though I was never that big a Bobby V fan, I'm totally on his side here. He knows exactly what he's saying.
  11:58pm Holly in NC:

Just found the best thing on Twitter:
Airplane Lavatory Self-Portraits in the Flemish Style http://bit.ly/K9DQ3s
  11:59pm Danne D:

Thanks for a great show, EFD :)
Have a good night everyone!
  2:56pm Steve:

Thanks for playing The Knack - 'Romeo Eyes' !
  2:08pm german:

Smoking Popes brings me back the the mid 90s and it was cool to listen to a band that sounded like the smiths...it brought back good memories..
  6:16pm robert:

Smoking Popes. cool and very under rated. Morrissey is huge fan of theirs!
