Holy man! Forgot about Paper Lace, the band from "Billy Don't Be a Hero" and "The Night Chicago Died."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/16/16 9:09pm efd:

hey Jake, hey Ken! Yup, that Paper Lace!
Avatar Wed. 11/16/16 9:13pm JakeGould:

Fun “Paper Lace” trivia from my life. First 45 single I ever bought in my life as a kid when I was like 7 or 8 years old? “The Night Chicago Died.” Bought it from some teen gal who was having a yard-isa sale in front of her building in Brooklyn.

And what building was that? *drumroll* Trump Village! The housing project that our new President’s dad built in deep Brooklyn.

That is all.

Does this Evan ever shut up? What an annoying voice

oh, there we go

@ice, not sure who bliss n esso are...?
Avatar Wed. 11/16/16 9:40pm herb.nyc:

On Joe Belock's recent show, he and Todd Abramson and Ira Kaplan spoke lovingly of Billy Miller. I no recall which of latter 2 said this- "they treated their business of Norton Records like a fanzine". Aww.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/16/16 9:49pm efd:

I missed that show, unfortunately. Gonna have to check the archive.
Avatar Wed. 11/16/16 9:50pm JakeGould:

@EFD: They seem to be a hip hop band from Australia, so maybe @ice is referring to that “Lordz of Brooklyn” bed music. And oh… Mr. Kave of said band has just opened a bar/pizza/art space a few blocks away from me in Bay Ridge. Small world!

those 25th anniversary shows for Norton Records in 2011 were EPIC!

Thanks EFD--you always make me feel better.
  Wed. 11/16/16 10:10pm ice in Bklyn:

Really good set!
I know I've heard you tell who does your theme song, but..
do tell again please!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/16/16 10:17pm efd:

@ice, it's by The Lordz Of Brooklyn - the song is called "Saturday Night," from the early '90s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/16/16 10:17pm efd:

@Chop Scott, that's nice of you to say - thank you.

The outro of that Omni record was gloriously 80-81. Top notch.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/16/16 10:28pm efd:

I've been overlooking that Omni album, for no good reason. It's good.

The Ultimate Painting record kinda flew by me, but that track was real good too.

I read this fb thing by rock writer Gina Arnold- she was in Pixies dressing room and talking about the Legendary Stardust Cowboy w someone. 15" later she realizes she's talking w Bowie!!! ---- Eyelids and Terry Malts really good, and terrific Billy Miller related set

I miss Laura Cantrell's show on the Saturday afternoon FMU airwaves.
  Wed. 11/16/16 10:47pm herb.nyc:

(1) is this a Laura C written song? So lovely. (2) did Laura open for Elvis C at NJPAC in Newark? I was there, bad memory.
  Wed. 11/16/16 10:52pm herb.nyc:

Is Atmosphere covering a Laura C song????? I think she sang this at Monty Hall, w Michael Shelley opening, earlier this year. Maybe FMA has it.
Avatar Wed. 11/16/16 10:54pm Howard F:

Good evening, always a pleasure to come home to the EFD show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/16/16 10:57pm efd:

thanks Howard, always a pleasure to have you listening!

@herb, that Laura C song was not written by her, but she pretty much makes it her own as far as I'm concerned. And the Atmosphere song was an Atmosphere song.
  Wed. 11/16/16 11:00pm ice in Bklyn:

EFD thanx for reminding me. I find myself singing it variously thru the week
  Wed. 11/16/16 11:08pm herb.nyc:

Thanks Mr Ed Funk Davies. And thanks again, Jake.
  Wed. 11/16/16 11:08pm ice in Bklyn:

By the way, the Rhys Chatham show last week was Amazing!
I couldn't go to the Oneida + RC show over the weekend at the church, but I heard it was exceptional!
  Wed. 11/16/16 11:09pm ice in Bklyn:

Exceptional if you're in to musical cults from Boston, that is..
Anyway, thx a lot for those tix last week..
  Wed. 11/16/16 11:13pm herb.nyc:

Spk'ng of shows, I may see Ani DiFranco and comic Lizzie Winstead this w'end, at the ethical ctr. I expect Trump jokes, tho he has the last laugh. Alas.

@ice, glad you enjoyed that show!
  Wed. 11/16/16 11:20pm herb.nyc:

Ain't it great to win tix from Evan, ice in B? I won New P and Stamey/Holsapple in the past. Thx Evan and wfmu, another reason we should support this station. (Who tuned into 7SD and Andy was giving away $100? Great show)

That was a good moody blues cut. Takes me back!
