ahhhh WET JOB!
one of the coolest songs EVER!
(and totally takes me back to by college daze :) )
Good Evening, Evan and everyone!
hope you are all staying COOL!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/8/18 9:18pm efd:

hi everyone! I have that same "Wet Job" response, slugluv! Always reminds me of Hurrah in particular.

Jake, trying to figure out how/if to work that into the conversation!
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 9:20pm JakeGould:

At least we’re on the same facacta wavelength.

True, true

All around, people looking half dead
Walking on the sidewalk, hotter than a match head
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 9:29pm JakeGould:

I took a shower when I came home from work and changed my clothes… And I still think I need to do that again.
  Wed. 8/8/18 9:33pm icy in Bklyn soon to be LA:

I realized I didn’t have any towels after my after work shower tonite, so I just stood naked in front of my biggest fan.
  Wed. 8/8/18 9:36pm icy in Bklyn soon to be LA:

btw, thanks EFD for those tix a few weeks ago to that band none of us will ever pronounce correctly. We stood, we listened, we criticized heavily, and realized they were just doing the same thing our band was doing, only with an immensely greater level of pressure than we have.
Good tones and good times..
  Wed. 8/8/18 9:37pm icy in Bklyn soon to be LA:

btw, my biggest fan is actually my cat, and he wasn’t giving an inch to that propeller driven hot air mover of his..
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/8/18 9:52pm Jeezy:

I gotta catch this thang Sunday. I'm still sad I missed Die Hard in the park tonight. :-*(
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 9:59pm slugluv1313:

@ icy in Bklyn soon to be LA: ahh in honor of International Cat Day?
mine have been lounging all day in the path of the AC (do not have central AC here) -- while i have been dealing with the EVIL LAUNDRY -- reminding me that EVERY day is International Cay Day hah!
@ JakeGould -- i know the feeling!
  Wed. 8/8/18 10:08pm kev:

I saw the Young Bloods @carnegie hall in1969 had 4th balcony seat and they called us all down from up there to the stage for this song
  Wed. 8/8/18 10:08pm herb.nyc:

Hello, Evan!

howdy KP, Ed, Tome, herb, barney, & Jeezy!

Anyone else laying in bed regretting how much candy they ate today?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/8/18 10:33pm efd:

just imagine how much you'd be regretting it if you didn't eat any candy today though

I just paid the super across the street $300 to fix my bedroom ceiling leak and after a long day of repainting and sealing etc... Sure enough...
Drip ... Drip.... DRIP
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/8/18 10:49pm Jeezy:

So.... I'm about to pour a second whiskey. No other choice, I'd say.

ugh, that stinks Jeezy. :(

i’m psyched to be awake for this tonight
  Wed. 8/8/18 11:06pm icy in Bklyn soon to be LA:

I’m midway thru my 2nd tequila cocktail. I may try another to see if I can get to 2/3’s of the way thru my third.. They’re quite refreshing, as is this efd session..
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 11:08pm Andrew S:

I thnk M muldaur would be flattered. Well maybe except for the singing part ;)

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/8/18 11:12pm Jeezy:

Well you perked up my night with those Wussy tix. Thanks EFD! :-)
  Wed. 8/8/18 11:15pm steveL:

Somehow, I never saw the dbs, although I'm pretty sure they came to Madison in the early 80s. That's too bad, as I like pretty much everything associated with them, especially the PH track.
  Wed. 8/8/18 11:15pm steveL:

Jeezy: You got the tix? There just might be a god.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/8/18 11:16pm Jeezy:

I saw Pete when he played at what used to be Brownies but then became... Damn, I already forget. Now it's Coney Island baby?
Yup, Steve! Justice was delivered!
  Wed. 8/8/18 11:19pm steveL:

Justice is sweet.
  Wed. 8/8/18 11:27pm steveL:

Just listened to this Wimps album, earlier tonight. Fucking great stuff! "Its your birthday."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/8/18 11:27pm Jeezy:

Not as sweet as this Kentucky Mule...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/8/18 11:28pm Jeezy:

Drat and the Wimps are playing Friday when I just won tix and SAT when Breeders are playing at Prospect Park...
  Wed. 8/8/18 11:28pm steveL:

Riding the Buffalo Trace here, through the smoke.
  Wed. 8/8/18 11:32pm steveL:

1978?!? Bill Kelly is VERY old.
  Wed. 8/8/18 11:34pm kev:

it was pretty special everyone was singing along
  Wed. 8/8/18 11:35pm CC:

it would be great if you could show some sexy girls dancing while the music was playing..!..
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/8/18 11:35pm efd:

@steveL he's even older than ME!
  Wed. 8/8/18 11:48pm steveL:

Bill Kelly is the SHIT. It is obligatory to proclaim this. The Sunday King of Rock and Roll. And then some.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/8/18 11:49pm Jeezy:

Ah, Buffalo Trace...
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 11:51pm Andrew S:

I dont remember exactly but i think it was probably bill kelly's show that first drew me to WFMU as well, probably read about it on the old bomp! mailing list
  Wed. 8/8/18 11:51pm steveL:

Going out with the power, I see. An old favorite might fit into the end of this set.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/8/18 11:52pm efd:

if it's the one I'm thinking of I don't think I have time for it!
  Wed. 8/8/18 11:52pm steveL:

Also, Power, the band is nigh in-Google-able.
  Wed. 8/8/18 11:53pm steveL:

Yeah, it goes on a bit. Long fade?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/8/18 11:54pm efd:

one word repeated over and over and over again?
  Wed. 8/8/18 11:55pm steveL:

Jeezy. Buffalo Trace is a delight and a bargain. Obviously, by the rate of my posts, it gets the job done.
  Wed. 8/8/18 11:55pm steveL:

That might be the one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/8/18 11:57pm jmd:

I'd be be Even 'Funk' Devastated to hear it.
