Options The Evan "Funk" Davies Show: Playlist from February 17, 2009 Options

efd's avatar View efd's profile Options

Every show starts with a cut from the ‘70s: Rediscovering the forgotten rockers, revisiting the once-hated disco beats, replaying the power-pop favorites. Next: copious amounts of new releases and occasional live bands. Also: I’m the biggest Nick Gilder fan on WFMU.

Hi, Evan!

For those who haven't heard yet, Glenn Danzig is replacing Bret and his Wig as the... prize? I guess! Anyway, he's doing the next season of Rock of Love. Rejoice, fiends!
  Tue. 2/17/09 11:15pm cheri:

  Tue. 2/17/09 11:17pm efd:

  Tue. 2/17/09 11:19pm cheri:

  Tue. 2/17/09 11:22pm john:

Hey Evan! Awesome Bee Gees cover. Whole album is actually really good, not just the EP
  Tue. 2/17/09 11:22pm Laurie:

Thanks, Evan!
  Tue. 2/17/09 11:27pm C:

bride of satan??? are you kidding me VH1? i thought obama was supposed to be making this country better
  Tue. 2/17/09 11:30pm Terre T:

Cripes...Mood 6!
  Tue. 2/17/09 11:40pm cheri:

evan--have you got any blossom dearie tunes??
  Tue. 2/17/09 11:42pm john:

As long as we're talking about that Bee Gees tribute, and I fully realize I'm the only one who is, Phil Seymour's version of The First Mistake I Ever Made is amazing. Back to live action.
  Tue. 2/17/09 11:42pm efd:

nope, I do not.

Hi Terre! and hi, C!
  Tue. 2/17/09 11:46pm cheri:

efd you ever watch family guy?? if so what do you think of the show?? i think it's funny as hell,,
  Tue. 2/17/09 11:52pm Terre T:

U GOTTA put that Mood 6 cut on yr 2009 premium, bro! Also hi Laurie---congrats on yr Big Win on The Best Show(sorry i dint reply on my Comments section this past Sat--i was goin nutz --u HAVE NO IDEA-acck!)
  Tue. 2/17/09 11:55pm Laurie:

Thanks, Terre! That Paul Collins Beat/Gentleman Jesse show was a winner! I can't wait to see Gentleman Jesse next month. Yay!
  Tue. 2/17/09 11:55pm efd:

TT, I'm trying to decide between that song or "Just Like A Dream," but I think it's safe to say there will be a Mood 6 trrack on there for sure.
Cheri, I don't really watch Family Guy.
  Tue. 2/17/09 11:59pm cheri:

well i'm beat,,i'm outa here,,,evan,,thnx see ya next week,,,
  Wed. 2/18/09 12:02am Marc:

can't wait for this year's premium. The last one is still a favourite to funk to when doing housework
  Wed. 2/18/09 12:03am john:

Just Like A Dream was also great! Opening track on that super cool nu-psych comp A Splash Of Colour in what, 81 or something? Barracudas and The Times on that too. Worth digging out. I'm done now. Srsly.
  Wed. 2/18/09 12:08am Michael From the Left Coast:

I go out one night and I miss Kristian Hoffman doing the Bee Gees! Damn
  Wed. 2/18/09 12:15am efd:

let that be a lesson to you, Michael!

John, yep, that is a great comp. Marc, I hope this year's premium lives up to your expectations!
  Wed. 2/18/09 12:32am Jessica:

OMG, that reminds me: I was supposed to finish my Corn Weenie, tonight, and have I even started? Not so much!

Crumbs.

I blame my spine[ is the bassline] (you can't not say it, once you get that far. if you're me.), and the bit that got rearranged when I wasn't looking, what with keeping my eyes on the road and the big red light overhead and all.
impending Percocet + the EFD showtime + Corn Weenie deadline => this is gonna be magnificent! Yaaay!
  Wed. 2/18/09 12:33am Joe:

The Manikins - For when you're this close to saying "Man, fuck it."

Great jorb on the epic live-show lineup EFD.
  Wed. 2/18/09 12:33am Jessica:

[the Atlantic City rosterreader reminded]
  Wed. 2/18/09 12:36am Michael from the Left Coast:

So EFD did you go to Chef Vola in AC? If not you missed the best meal in the state of New Jersey.
  Wed. 2/18/09 12:37am Cal Zone!:

Hey EFD, play something positive for Chimps. Lotta bad press lately. They can use some spin control.
  Wed. 2/18/09 12:39am efd:

Chef Vola? No, I missed that altogether. And here I thought I was doing OK by hitting Tony's Baltimore Grill for dinner.

Glad that roster of bands did some good, Jessica!

Cal, I'll see if I can scare something up to send a positive monkey message. Might have to wait for DAve the Spazz, though...
  Wed. 2/18/09 12:47am Michael from the Left Coast:

You were at the Tropicana?! You were right near Chef Vola! A missed opportunity.
  Wed. 2/18/09 12:49am efd:

oh man, next time!
  Wed. 2/18/09 12:54am Michael From the Left Coast:

I'll have to give you the unlisted number to Chef Vola--you have to make a reservation (and it's better to call because you probably wouldn't find the place without proper directions from them)
  Wed. 2/18/09 12:56am Joe:

This sitar is pretty good, but I feel like it needs some rapping over it.
  Wed. 2/18/09 12:57am Michael from the Left Coast:

Wow-is the rest of this Chris Joss record as good as this?
  Wed. 2/18/09 12:59am efd:

MIchael, yeah, it's pretty good - but, not all the songs feature sitar as prominently. There are some organ and flute-based songs as well.

Joe, I'd have a feeling you might be thinking that -- because I was, too!
  Wed. 2/18/09 1:06am Joe B:

Tony's Baltimore Grill rules! One of the best places ever!
  Wed. 2/18/09 1:22am Michael from the Left Coast:

Wow-Bill Nelson! Haven't heard this in ten years
  Wed. 2/18/09 1:24am Jessica:

omg Bill Nelson, yay!
I have this on vinyl. It gets played, sometimes.
That, plus Nice Face and Fallen Leaves. And the Batcave comp.
Otherwise it all kind of sits there and looks pretty, beside the slab o wood & belt drive contraption.
This isn't fair, tho, 'cause I can't dance around like it's 1983 with my back all discombobulated.
Play this again in a few weeks?
  Wed. 2/18/09 1:25am Jessica:

(Left Coast aso representin', bringing the Bill Nelson love [turns to lust])
  Wed. 2/18/09 1:25am efd:

Jessica, you're going to want me to play the next song again in a few weeks too, I'm afraid.
  Wed. 2/18/09 1:29am Jessica:

That's not going to be a problem, is it?

It took me a while: this could have been Fly Robin Fly, that song in the Mos Eiseley cantina, or... it's gone now.
My first thought was "How's he going to mix Bill Nelson and Billy Squier?"
  Wed. 2/18/09 1:32am efd:

ha! Now I feel like I'm being challenged! :)

This song definitely has that Silver Convention feel to it.
  Wed. 2/18/09 1:33am Spoony:

Great show, Evan.
  Wed. 2/18/09 1:34am Joe:

The Mos Eisley Cantina song is called "Mad About Me".

The band's name was "Figrin D'an and the Modal Nodes."

stop me, if I'm boring you.
  Wed. 2/18/09 1:42am efd:

And here I was worried about whether I'd be able to stay awake for the rest of my show.

Glad you're enjoying the show, Spoony!
  Wed. 2/18/09 1:55am Michael from the Left Coast:

I never saw a single episode of Mannix but loved watching the opening credits for this theme
  Wed. 2/18/09 1:58am Joe B:

Fave Mannix episode is the one with Buffalo Springfield
  Wed. 2/18/09 1:58am Joe:

The swami sounds like a cartoon cat who's name I can't recall. I want to say Top Cat. But I don't think it's him.
  Wed. 2/18/09 10:49am herb:

ooooh, so that's who sings "how do you do?". i recall it from when i first started listening to a.m. - tho my earliest memory off radio is "spirit in the sky" (which 104.3 played a lil before the GRAHAM NASH interv on sunday). plus, me wuv wuv wuv "hanging around" - when i started listening to WNYU, i'd write down a list of songs that thrilled me. it was on it (darn, where is that list?).
  Wed. 2/18/09 12:04pm laura:

Ooooh, can we have some more hints about what's going to be on the marathon premium?
