A bit of a Jack White feel to the Segall guitar right there.

Nice shades, ganser
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:01pm Mr. Pumpy:

Handy! This is a band I mentioned to you months ago, but couldn't remember the name. I mentioned them because they are great, but also because the vocals remind me of Kate's in some ways.

This Dream Syndicate is so good, I hadn't heard it until now. At least not actively. Excellent!

And this is the shortest song on the album!

... not that I'm hyper-focused on the time or anything ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:09pm Mr. Pumpy:

mariano...yo! Yeah, we were talking about Night of the Hunter earlier. That's the good stuff. Noir with a twisted flavor of religion and lost children. What more can you ask for?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:10pm Mr. Pumpy:

efd...ha! Can you squeeze them in? To think this band can deliver the goods like this at this point in their career. Amazing.
Avatar 11:10pm javakid:

11 more songs in 50 minutes, with your pop instincts EFD, nothing to worry about.

a Steve Wynn triple tonight! (Evan, I played a bit of Staten Island during one of the dropouts). Hi Gaylord!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:11pm Gaylord Fields:

efd, it’s a hoary old cliché that terrible times inspire great art, but I do think that might actually hold true for 2020. And heaven knows we needed it this year!

(I just hope there's time for the air horns!)

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:35pm Handy Haversack:

Eyelids def. one of K8's top ten albums of the year.

But missing that Pancake Brunch .. that was brutal. I had this weird couple of hours? days? when I was all like, "Oh, it's OK that the Tartan Day Parade was canceled! That means I can go see Eyelids at WFMU!"

Because I am usually pretty stupid, you see.
Avatar 11:35pm Hoboken Jack:

Not to be a stickler, but that was to be a waffles show, not pancakes.

Fine, I'll go eat my blintzes elsewhere.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:40pm Handy Haversack:

Can I have a blintz?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:41pm efd:

@ChukAmok and @Mr Pumpy I highly recommend the record Nat put out last year under the band name Freeloader - it's more of a hard rock/Crust vibe, and very good. (With Jackie Kickassis on drums to boot)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:41pm Mr. Pumpy:

Oh...now you want something! Sure.
Avatar 11:41pm Hoboken Jack:

Lithics, yessssssss!!!

Great, great show. Thanks so much. You're the air in all of our horns. What a great part of a crappy year this show has been. We have had meetings, marches, all sorts of things try to claim Wednesday evenings over the course of this year, but every single damn week, we knew, let's get some efd in. It will make it all worthwhile.

And it did!

Happy New Year! And happy New Year to all the assembled Funksters!
