Ahh… Popcorn…

I knew the song, but never the title & artist. Learn something new everyday.

Hello everyone!
Everyday...great start as usual EFD!

hey everyone! Thanks for tuning in - live set from Wimps coming up at the bottom of the hour!

Hey all. Good to be here.
Avatar Wed. 4/6/16 9:15pm JakeGould:

@DonJuanTijuana: There are a lot of different versions of “Popcorn” that sound 100% the same. Crazy 1970s hit cover mania.
Avatar Wed. 4/6/16 9:16pm DonJuanTijuana:

@Jake...thanks man!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 4/6/16 9:17pm melinda:

@Jake: that's even weirder than there being just one "Popcorn", which is already odd, in a good way.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/6/16 9:17pm Alex of Chicago:

Excited to see Wimps this Saturday. They remind me of all the things I liked about Seattle.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/6/16 9:26pm efd:

Alex, be sure to tell them you heard them on The Evan "Funk" Davies Show! :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/6/16 9:27pm Alex of Chicago:

I'm too shy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/6/16 9:33pm Cooh John:

How the "funk" is everybody? Took your cue, efd.
Avatar Wed. 4/6/16 9:35pm JakeGould:

@DonJuanTijuana: And here, I present to you the artists who created the original “Popcorn”… Hot Butter themselves. img.discogs.com...

'wimps' sound really cool!!! good one Evan...;)

They are great EfD--Nice.

The Wimps really have a good sense of humor. I like them. Here they are on the Bandcamp. thesewimps.bandcamp.com
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/6/16 9:44pm efd:

they are awesome! Check the Free Music Archive for the set they did on my show in 2013 - it's also great!
Avatar Wed. 4/6/16 9:44pm geezerette:

It's CBGB in my head.
Avatar Wed. 4/6/16 9:45pm JakeGould:

“Slept in Late”, “Dump”, “Old Guy”, “Hello, Frustration”… Why these folks have the WFMU demographic nailed to a T!

too true!
  Wed. 4/6/16 9:47pm IFisher:

Yeah! Wimps!
  Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/6/16 9:47pm Walt:

@JakeGould, Hot Butter had the hit -- the song was originally composed and recorded by Moog pioneer Gershon Kingsley.

Avatar Wed. 4/6/16 9:50pm JakeGould:

“Grump”? What did I say…

I'm gonna say the next one also speaks to the WFMU demo...

High energy Rock for low energy listeners. Cheerful curmudgeons,I dig it.

“Nap” YES!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/6/16 9:57pm Alex of Chicago:

Yeah, this is so Seattle. At least, before Amazon ruined it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/6/16 10:05pm Alex of Chicago:

Man, it's worse than I thought.
  Wed. 4/6/16 10:08pm ScottC:

Take it from a displaced SF native - it's awful. Heartbreaking to see what is happening to SF
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/6/16 10:09pm Alex of Chicago:

Yeah, I grew up on Capitol Hill in Seattle. Parents and family still live there. I hear about it, but haven't experienced it personally.
Avatar Wed. 4/6/16 10:12pm JakeGould:

There is a connection between S.F. real estate and the Panama Papers. TL;DR, the situation is similar to NYC where a lot of condos and properties are just there for money laundering and are not occupied. Cash deals that are so high they ruin the real estate market for real people who want/need to live there. Same B.S. as tons of NYC condos. www.48hills.org...
Avatar Wed. 4/6/16 10:14pm Andy:

How appropriate. The Phillies bullpen has blown their first two games. No Tugs in that lineup.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 4/6/16 10:15pm Uncle Michael:

Wow. Tug...just...wow.
  Wed. 4/6/16 10:15pm daveB Oakland:

wait, what is this now? Who's reading Casey at the bat? This dude's crazy as hell.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/6/16 10:16pm efd:

It's legendary Met (and also Phillie) Tug McGraw!
  Wed. 4/6/16 10:17pm IFisher:

I cannot help but throw salt in that West Coast housing wound. Recently the President of the SF Federal Reserve Bank made a speech where he basically said, yeah, tough darts about the housing costs, it is a result of the strong economy - totally tone-deaf to the pain it causes for many. Now what really made this speech notable was that Clash song titles and lyrics were woven in to the text. The speech was called "The Right Profile". The mind boggles
Avatar Wed. 4/6/16 10:17pm JakeGould:

Now this is schmaltz!
  Wed. 4/6/16 10:19pm daveB Oakland:

Wow, Tug and this dischordant ensemble are amazing.
  Wed. 4/6/16 10:22pm daveB Oakland:

I can't believe this is still happning
Avatar Wed. 4/6/16 10:23pm JakeGould:

The record industry of the 1970s and early 1980s really just had cash to piss away.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/6/16 10:23pm Alex of Chicago:

@IFisher It does. I just hope Portland, which lacks a port, avoids it. Because I'd like to move there. That said, the White Sox game finally started in Oakland. Oh, Casey.
  Wed. 4/6/16 10:29pm IFisher:

Wimps should write a song about the absurdity of a public official downplaying high housing costs while citing the Clash. I think I'm gonna write to the guy and point out that Strummer was famously a squatter in London
Avatar Wed. 4/6/16 10:34pm JakeGould:

Elliot Easton of the Cars?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/6/16 10:35pm efd:

The very same, Jake.
  Wed. 4/6/16 10:36pm daveB Oakland:

This reminds me of a Billy Idol song, what am I thinking of? Just that little keyboard stab in the verses.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/6/16 10:37pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Stabs actually remind me of horns in 'My Wife' by TheWho.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/6/16 10:40pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...lived in Santa Barbara, & remember 'rolling blackouts' to save energy - which turned out to be related to Enron - & - totally false...
  Wed. 4/6/16 10:44pm daveB Oakland:

@RevRabbit ah ... maybe that's what I was thinking of.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/6/16 10:46pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Well - that was a long time ago. Anyhow - my advice to people going to the WestCoast is always - just bring money.
  Wed. 4/6/16 10:46pm IFisher:

Rev Rabbit, I recall that, at the time could not believe that public officials were standing by and allowing that to happen. Oh god, I'm seeing red!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/6/16 10:49pm Alex of Chicago:

One of the Heavy Times members just moved to LA. But I didn't hear an official breakup.
Avatar Wed. 4/6/16 11:06pm JakeGould:

Ahhh… “Jive Talking”… Another song I associate with summer days playing Skee-Ball in Coney Island in the 1970s as a wee kid.

What an misbegotten band name. Oy.

I have The OG CDR of that white Hills
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/6/16 11:28pm efd:

nice! I do not, so I'm glad it's been reissued. :)

My cat enjoys eating nip, but has consistently refused all of the bad elements' attempts to get her hooked on meth.

Dang! Haven't heard this for a long time. Nice call, EFD.

Now all we need is a 74 Camara and a pint of Southern Comfort...

Yo, it didn't take me long to recognize that voice. Eddie, he's so Money $$$$$

...and Molly Hatchet on TT 2.
  Wed. 4/6/16 11:49pm daveB Oakland:

pretty sure I've been to parties with 300 Mikes in attendance. And an equal number of Daves.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 4/6/16 11:58pm Alex of Chicago:

I like this one. Thanks for a great show, @efd.
  Fri. 4/8/16 5:03pm First time listener:

What's the name of background song playing while the DJ speaks?
  Fri. 4/8/16 5:26pm First time listener:

never mind, I found it.
