Control Top should be a great set.

@John It is very much my cup of tea! Just wasn't at home for it this year. It's always a fun one to listen live to.

@Kat just have never liked disco, but hey if you like it no problem

yeah, bummer! I was hoping they'd be doing those shows.

As a woman with a convex belly I also enjoy their choice of band name
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/28/19 9:59pm efd:

haha! It's a pretty great name.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 8/28/19 10:03pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Uncontrolled Bottom may or may not also be a great name. I'm still trying to decide on that.

@KFHP signs point to no :)

"Office Rage"!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/28/19 10:07pm efd:

she had to sing "Eat dust!" in place of the original lyric. It wasn't dust that was being eaten, I can assure you.

Woof! Wow!

That was more intense than my typical Wednesday night... Thanks EFD!

mine too! You're welcome, Phillippe!
Avatar 🎃 Wed. 8/28/19 10:18pm Hoboken Jack:

Hello EFD and all! Was the name Cookie & the Crumbs already taken? I'm no marketing guru but...
  Wed. 8/28/19 10:20pm steveL:

Boy, it would be cool if Control Top added Fort Wayne to the beginning or end of their tour.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/28/19 10:22pm efd:

Hi Jack! I think it must have been, right? Probably some hotel lounge combo in the midwest, I'm guessing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/28/19 10:24pm medson:

Hi Jack, great show efd. Have to tap out now zzzzzzzzz.
Catch ya on the archives
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/28/19 10:26pm efd:

later Meds!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 8/28/19 10:30pm Kat in Chicago:

I did a search for "Cookie & the Crumbs". which certainly seems like it would have been used previously. However, the only other one I found was Cook E. Jarr and the Krums, who apparently played Las Vegas lounges for decades. So you weren't far off, EFD.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 8/28/19 10:32pm Kat in Chicago:

"Looking like a cross between a young Buddy Hackett and Moe of the Three Stooges, Jarr’s trademarks were his helmet hairstyle (thanks to cans of Aquanet), a chestful of chains, customized jeans (most with his name embroidered down one leg), and a perpetual tan so deep that he looked like he’d just returned from a visit to the surface of the sun." www.lasvegasadvisor.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/28/19 10:33pm Aitch:

A stiffy, boner etc
  Wed. 8/28/19 10:34pm steveL:

Fort Wayne wants them, and may be reaching out. More updates as they develop.
  Wed. 8/28/19 10:37pm steveL:

Constant Mongrels is one of my favorite band names, ESPECIALLY with the full understanding.

Eternal Boners just isn’t the same.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/28/19 10:42pm efd:

ha, I was thinking of Cook E. Jarr! I remember seeing that name on a marquee in Vegas decades ago.
  Wed. 8/28/19 10:42pm steveL:

...Strident Stiffy...
  Wed. 8/28/19 10:47pm two tigers:

Yeay! Sounds of Summer!!!
  Wed. 8/28/19 10:47pm steveL:

Play that French horn, baby!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 8/28/19 10:48pm Kat in Chicago:

Aw, summer's almost over. Beautiful day in Chicago today, but noticeably a bit cooler.
  Wed. 8/28/19 10:51pm steveL:

Lloyd Cole was here about two months ago. Didn’t go, for some reason. Don’t be like me. He’s an absolute treasure/treat/name your favorite superlative.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/28/19 10:55pm efd:

bad decision by you, steve!
  Wed. 8/28/19 10:58pm steveL:

Indeed. Saw him about seven months after he spun records on your show. He was wonderful. Funny. Great songwriter.
Avatar 🎃 Wed. 8/28/19 10:59pm Hoboken Jack:

Already established that I'm no marketing guru, but an apostrophe and two accents in that name?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 8/28/19 11:00pm Kat in Chicago:

That's French for ya.
  Wed. 8/28/19 11:02pm steveL:

They’ve earned them, Jack.

How’ve you been? Give me reasons to come to NJ:NYC. I need to swing a WFMU visit.
  Wed. 8/28/19 11:03pm steveL:

Better yet, I believe Lloyd Cole enjoys playing to intimate audiences (no touching!)
  Wed. 8/28/19 11:08pm steveL:

That’s too bad. Andrew gave a fascinating interview. Sharp filmmaker. Peace.
Avatar 🎃 Wed. 8/28/19 11:10pm Hoboken Jack:

Kat, it's like Steve Martin once said: Those French have a different word for EVERYTHING! Hey SteveL, been pretty good, thanks! Maybe venture to Monty Hall for the Long Ryders on Sept 18?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/28/19 11:10pm efd:

yeah, I didn't know he'd been sick until I heard the news.
  Wed. 8/28/19 11:15pm steveL:

TS were good at what they did. The documentary shows some of the reasons why.

Kids in the hall comes from Jack Benny who had young comedians waiting to get a meeting. He called them “the kids in the hall”. I fucking miss Jack Benny!
