i am digging this tinted windows tune, and even more amused reading who these guys are. i like it.
  9:11pm jon:

hi efd. hi funksters. welcome back to nj
  9:11pm WO Town Wick:

This "Sunshine" sounds kind of like Dismemberment Plan

hi Evan! hi everyone!!
yes, we did miss you...

  9:14pm JakeGould:

Hello all!
  9:14pm john:

Welcome back! (We never quite made it out there.) Do I remember hearing ledernacken on the New Afternoon Show?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:16pm efd:

@john, you might have but not while I was there (it came out after I left).

Hi everybody! It's great to be back!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:17pm chris_in_space:

Welcome back EFD. You were missed. This ledermacken tune reminded me of Material. Evening all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:17pm Stevel:

Amok had a very cool video, as I recall. More than a bit angsty.
  9:17pm john:

Yeah, didn't mean to imply you had quite that advance a copy--WNYU was my main listening during The Unemployable Years™, 84-86
Avatar 9:18pm -andrew-:

Hey EFD and everyone else of course! Glad to have a free evening to listen live!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:19pm Stevel:

john: I remember those years. Graduate, janitor at a bagel factory, Temp assembly work, flower truck delivery driver.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:20pm chris_in_space:

This disco Gimmie Some Lovin' trumps any Grateful Dead version of the tune, disco Dead or not.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:21pm Stevel:

andrew: Live is different, partly because of the boards, I suppose. More so, I feel like I'm along for the ride and if I miss something, well, too bad.

Wednesdays are good, long radio days. I very much like Ken's show, Amanda at noon on GDR and efd to close the day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:21pm WO Town Wick:

  9:22pm john:

Stevel: substitute teacher, record store clerk, marketing research dogsbody, extended periods of unemployment/yardwork, lots of nights out in the city/sleeping on floors and sofas. I miss those days. Mostly.
Avatar 9:23pm -andrew-:

Stevel: Yeah, working 3rd shift, most of the shows I listen to are on when I'm sleeping, so I listen to most shows on the archive. I do like the interaction with fellow listeners though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:23pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Good gawd this Gap Dream is from 2012? Sheesh.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:25pm Stevel:

This Gap Dream sounds like a blast from the past. They continue to grow on me. Non-stop.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:26pm WO Town Wick:

Agree Stevel. I love the Gap Dream, including their last one. First heard them here thanks to efd.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:27pm Stevel:

Surprised it wasn't Thee Open Mind. Can't think of everything. Rocks hard. Never heard it. Can't believe someone's brother didn't make me get high to it. (Had to settle for Hendrix.)

Gap dream definitely discovered via efd for me as well.
  9:29pm Thierry:

hi Evan, different IP, but it's me, from Lille! Have a good show!
Avatar 9:38pm Holly in NC:

Hi efd! Man, just missed one of my all-time fave songs (magic potion) , and a song that likely will end up in my all time fave list in a few years (58th st. fingers).

btw I first heard "magic potion" on Bam Caruso's fab first comp The Psychedlic Snarl (aka rubble v#1) , was so mad when my best friend/fellow record fiend grabbed the ONE copy of that import lp at our 1 cool local record store.

@efd - why are you so stuffy?

@everyone - hello!

Preparing to be snowed in- AGAIN. Anyone else in same boat?
Avatar 9:41pm Soccer Jack:

what was the track playing in the background while Evan was speaking? That was a great hook. 58h St. Fingers was great. Can't believe that was 2012
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:41pm efd:

hi Holly! Came down with a cold right at the end of my trip, and the red-eye flight back overnight Sunday night did not help matters. Hopefully I'll be all unstuffed by next week!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:46pm efd:

thanks cheri
Avatar 9:47pm Holly in NC:

@cheri - hello!

@efd - Hot Toddy. Bare minimum hot water, ginger, cayenne, lemon & honey - of course works best with glug of alcohol of choice (bourbon, rum, whiskey, scotch..) but as I recall you prefer not to indulge and the alcohol is not necessary. If no alcohol may want to sub tea or broth for water.
  9:47pm rw:

efd, I got a gift certificate to Burger for Xmas and haven't had a chance to redeem it yet. You didn't snatch up all the good stuff did you?
  9:48pm rw:

And... hope you feel better soon!
  9:49pm Osvi:

Hating the gym that much less with these jams EFD...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:52pm efd:

Don't you worry, rw, there is still a TON of good stuff at Burger! Enjoy your gift cert!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:53pm efd:

don't forget to breathe, Osvi!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:53pm efd:

Soccer Jack, the talkover music is a loop from "Saturday Night" by the Lordz Of Brooklyn, and that song itself loops the guitar lick from "American Woman."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:53pm chris_in_space:

@Holly in NC:
I concur about the hot toddy. Pasted your recipe into my stuff for future go-to mix. I noticed the stuffiness you mentioned in our venerable host tonight as well. Thought it was a levels issue.

It's those damn planes that get you sick at the tail end of your trip, eh @efd?
  9:54pm JakeGould:

Hi there folks! What’s happening? Now?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:56pm chris_in_space:

Time for The Funk; not much.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:56pm Glenn L:

pHoaming Edison!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:58pm efd:

chris_in_space, I was definitely starting to come down with something before I got on the plane, but I feel safe saying whatever that something was got stronger during the flight.
Avatar 10:01pm Soccer Jack:

Thanks efd!

I'll be up for the final weekend.

Hi Evan and others
...Yes, people new to fmu must be dreading this fund drive. they cannot imagine such a thing being fair-to-very entertaining.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:07pm efd:

see you then, BGZ!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:08pm Stevel:

Toughest thing about the fund drive is identifying the best music premiums. That's a good problem to have.

For years, I thought Lindsay Buckingham was English because of his name...

I always thought Pol Pot was the name of a Polish soup served in a traditional pot. Then I found out the truth.
  10:14pm Marjorie Courtenay-Latimer:

You should play Holiday in Cambodia.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:14pm Fuzzy:

@Jake: You stole that joke from The Sonny and Cher Show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:14pm chris_in_space:

Ok I feel that requesting Ricked Wicky again now that the Meatbodies has come out is totally acceptable. How about Piss Face?
Avatar 10:14pm Holly in NC:

@JakeGould - I will never listen to Jello warble "Holiday in Cambodia" in the same way again.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:17pm efd:

I did pull that Ricked Wicky CD, chrs_i_s, so you're halfway there.
Avatar 10:18pm -andrew-:

That Ricked Wicky album is pretty fantastic.

and fist pump to @-andrew-
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:20pm efd:

Marjorie C-L, I assume you're familiar with fellow commenter coelacanth.
  10:20pm JakeGould:

I also thought that Tommy Tutone was born with 1/2 of his body white and the other side black. Just like those Star Trek Cheron guys. Let THAT be my last assumption-field.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:21pm efd:

settle down, cheri.
  10:22pm JakeGould:

Also, Jello Biafra? I thought that is what you see on sidewalks outside of frat bars on Jello shot night in the East Village.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:22pm Stevel:

Number Ones. Have they done any US touring lately?
  10:22pm Kris:

oh lord I am so so so so glad you guys are playing these bands
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:24pm chris_in_space:

Intellectual Types is like the first of what I think is to come: "Robert Pollard Presents", which is basically other people singing his stuff. Love it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:24pm coelacanth:

efd! i didn't even notice that!

{Marjorie- Thank you!}
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:29pm coelacanth:

(...although,presumed extinct has its merits)

that ricked wicky was good. 'never heard of it.

...also called "punk" was talking heads;elvis costello;joe jackson;blondie;...things were different.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:30pm coelacanth:

u2 was also.
  10:30pm JakeGould:

Back in the 1970s, “Punk” magazine considered AC/DC punk.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:31pm coelacanth:

yeah, that too.
...and some people said kiss was punk.
  10:32pm JakeGould:

KISS can blow me. I can’t dislike a band more. If Gene Simmons were in front of me I would say, “Mazel tov on milking this, but c’mon…”
  10:33pm john:

Briefly in 1979 Midge Ure may actually have been simultaneously a member of Visage, Ultravox, and Thin Lizzy. This fact may alone justify the existence of a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, to which of course Ure does not belong.
  10:34pm Barkevious Shabazz:

The crash of the anvil at the nightclub school?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:34pm efd:

Excellent point, john!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:35pm coelacanth:

as much as i loathe kiss, there are lots i'd even less rather hear.
  10:36pm john:

Can there possibly be anything less punk than arguing about who's punk?
  10:37pm JakeGould:

The Who is punk.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:38pm coelacanth:

i wont argue!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:40pm coelacanth:

some say the kingsmen in the 60s was punk.
...i guess.
  10:41pm JakeGould:

The pizza and medium fruit punch sitting in front of me as a teen as I argued video games and music? That was punk.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:43pm coelacanth:

sunny d was punk.
-and skateboards.
Avatar 10:45pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:45pm coelacanth:

keeping an open jar of turpentine on my desk in my bedroom for years...that was punk.
...or was that metal?

Really loving this Visage segment, efd! Thanks!

  10:58pm Claw!:

How goes it, Fish?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:02pm coelacanth:

heyyy Crabby!
  11:04pm Claw!:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:17pm coelacanth:

hey Claw!,i suppose you're a cat or a bear or something, but for some reason a crab came to mind just then!
(i think claw is even incorrect terminology for what crab have got.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:18pm coelacanth:

("crabs have got")
  11:23pm Claw!:

Well, I live in MD, so "crab" isn't too far off. Although I do like bears, so I'm ok with that, too.
  11:25pm JakeGould:

Lobsters have claws.
  11:26pm Claw!:

Mmmm... lobster.
  11:27pm Claw!:

Pincers? Is that what the claws are "technically" called?

oh! uh, I mean, thanks!
  11:30pm JakeGould:

“I’m Pincering Your Face” was a great “Squids in the Hall” sketch.
  Swag For Life Member 11:30pm Lonely Planet Boy:

verse sections of Dr. Tarr reminds me of Steely Dan
  11:31pm Claw!:

I have a scar on my eyebrow from getting pincered on the face.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:32pm efd:

I didn't know it at the time, but that was English hitmaker John Miles singing lead on that Alan Parsons Project cut.
  11:34pm JakeGould:

If the lobster says “No!”, Claw! then don’t lean in or you get the pincers in the face.

  11:46pm Claw!:

That air horn is hilarious, although I think I've been conditioned to expect a heavy thumping hip hop track to drop after that sound is made.
  11:48pm Claw!:

I dunno, Evan... The last time I trusted Pat Byrne, I ended up with a scar on my eyebrow.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:51pm coelacanth:

i was just thinking how the efd air horn always makes me laugh out loud,except when it makes me laugh quietly...but the only association i have to it is baseball games in my childhood.

  11:53pm rw:

Excellent show as always EFD! Next time you're in Fullerton you should let me know and I'll buy you a taco or something. That offer goes for all of y'all on the comments board too!
  11:53pm Claw!:

... but who's counting, right? ;)

I like this game.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:56pm coelacanth:

i could use a good taco!
okay, i'm off to fullerton.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:56pm efd:

thanks rw! It'll probably be another year at least til I get back there but I'll keep that in mind!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:57pm coelacanth:

...but seriously,rw- that's good of you to say that!
  11:58pm rw:

coelacanth, let me know when you get here. You know where to find me.
  11:59pm Claw!:

I'd like a taco, but the last time I bought one, it was a mess. I tripped on the sidewalk while I was walking with taco in hand... I fell face-first into it and BOOM - a shard of the crispy tortilla shell cut into my eyebrow. I have a scar from it now.
  11:59pm Claw!:

Thanks efd! Nice show!
