Options The Evan "Funk" Davies Show: Playlist from June 23, 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.

  Tue. 6/23/09 11:08pm Sybil:

Good evening all! Off to a bang as usual, EFD!

I'm sitting here eating moro de guandules, thinking about baseball, and NOT having to get up at 4:30 tomorrow morning. Ahh, summahtime!
  Tue. 6/23/09 11:09pm rachel jansen:

Ah the Rubinoos!
  Tue. 6/23/09 11:12pm Sad Trombone:

Hey EFD!
  Tue. 6/23/09 11:12pm Laurie:

I would not object to an Aztec Camera tribute and a Roddy Frame interview.
  Tue. 6/23/09 11:12pm Joe:

Yo Davies, don't get upset or anything, but I think "Rex" already did your show for you tonight.

I kid, I kid.
  Tue. 6/23/09 11:15pm Joe:

And I liked most of the songs he played too. Dunno what that says about me.
  Tue. 6/23/09 11:15pm rachel jansen:

  Tue. 6/23/09 11:16pm Laurie:

Joe, it says you're old.
  Tue. 6/23/09 11:18pm Joe:

And now I am going to post a short video of a man being shot in the nuts to death by a soda machine. Because that is a scene from a real movie, directed by Stephen King, that this song was written SPECIFICALLY FOR:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7K44PqV2Idk
  Tue. 6/23/09 11:18pm G:

Haven't heard that ac/dc track since it was on the radio in about 86...
  Tue. 6/23/09 11:19pm efd:

Joe: may I refer you to http://twitter.com/efd/status/2303742618
  Tue. 6/23/09 11:21pm G:

Gee that doesn't sound a little like "Dizzy," does it??? Jam Up and Jelly Tight tonight, babee!
  Tue. 6/23/09 11:22pm Joe:

Ah! Sorry. Whatever, screw -that- guy. Everybody knows drummers aren't funny.

And Laurie, those songs were, without exception, much older than myself.
  Tue. 6/23/09 11:23pm rachel j.:

evan please play some sweet just for toni & i,,,
  Tue. 6/23/09 11:27pm efd:

not sure if Sweet is in the cards for tonight, Rachel/Toni, as much as I like them.

And you!
  Tue. 6/23/09 11:29pm G:

What a gentleman! :-)
  Tue. 6/23/09 11:32pm chris slusarenko:

perhaps...the three o' clock "and so we run"? just a mood.
  Tue. 6/23/09 11:40pm Michael from the Left Coast:

Could be worse, it could be the guy who wrote Feelings
  Tue. 6/23/09 11:40pm Sybil:

Michael FTW!
  Tue. 6/23/09 11:41pm You Light Up My Life guy:

It was a love song. I needed love. Nuff said.
  Tue. 6/23/09 11:42pm rachel jansen:

evan,,,debbie boone should be shot
  Tue. 6/23/09 11:46pm efd:

suddenly things have taken a dark turn.
  Tue. 6/23/09 11:48pm Michael from the Left Coast:

Syb--pardon my ignorance, but what is FTW?
  Tue. 6/23/09 11:48pm Phil Spector:

You don''t know from dark, dude. I'll show you dark.
  Tue. 6/23/09 11:49pm Michael from the Left Coast:

EFD--things always turn dark when the lemonheads play
  Tue. 6/23/09 11:50pm urbandictionary.com:

FTW = for the win, or fuck the world -- gamer lingo expressing defiant confidence and similar attitudes
  Tue. 6/23/09 11:50pm rachel jansen:

abba & yoko ono should also be shot!!!!
  Tue. 6/23/09 11:50pm Joe:

Mike's right - just look at Evan Dando.
  Tue. 6/23/09 11:50pm Sybil:

MftLC - "for the win"

Didn't know that other one. Hmm.
  Tue. 6/23/09 11:52pm No Nonsense Cop:

We got a call, threats made. Is everything ok here?
  Tue. 6/23/09 11:52pm Joe:

the "Fuck the World" is actually olllddd biker slang. You still sometimes see it on jackets and stuff. I'm sure they're pumped about being co-opted by internet nerds.

MARK POLANSKY--WHO GREW UP IN WFMU LAND IS COMANDER OF STS127--NEXT SPACE SHUTTLE FLIGHT TO STATION

Rachel, now you've gone too far. You shall not besmirch Abba during this program (or the one that precedes it).
  Tue. 6/23/09 11:53pm Michael from the Left Coast:

Everything's fine officer. Now if I could only stop the sound of these guitars in my head.
  Tue. 6/23/09 11:54pm Internet Nerds:

  Tue. 6/23/09 11:58pm Joe:

from the wiki -

Mark Lewis "Roman" Polansky (born June 2, 1956 in Paterson, New Jersey) is an American aerospace engineer and research pilot and a NASA astronaut. Polansky received the nickname "Roman" as a joke, because he shares a last name with director Roman Polansky.

Yeesh.
  Tue. 6/23/09 11:59pm Internet Nerds:

Yeah momz, stop @ the Wawa, we needz a p stop.
  Wed. 6/24/09 12:00am Sybil:

psuper creepy, Psybil...
  Wed. 6/24/09 12:13am Joe:

There are at least 9 things I don't understand about that video.
  Wed. 6/24/09 12:14am coalhard:

would be neat if they took charles manson into orbit released him--every man needs his freedom
  Wed. 6/24/09 12:17am coalhard:

as a young boy i played with charles in west virginia
  Wed. 6/24/09 12:19am Sybil:

At least 9? I'm still stuck on "How did it come to exist?"
  Wed. 6/24/09 12:20am Sybil:

Ah, another souvenir!
  Wed. 6/24/09 12:21am efd:

Sybil, that video is nuts! I'll have to check it out with sound later.
  Wed. 6/24/09 12:22am Joe:

For a second I thought this might be a Hoagiefest song.
  Wed. 6/24/09 12:23am Sybil:

I was just typing that myself, Joe.
  Wed. 6/24/09 12:24am coalhard:

manson lawyer wrote a book --i was interviewed--told him the time me and charley and girl named rhonda explored a cave found a skull
  Wed. 6/24/09 12:25am rachel jansen:

efd---i was only jokin about what i said about abba,,i'm i forgivin???
  Wed. 6/24/09 12:26am Joe:

if Wawa actually did deliver, I might actually stop arguing with people as to whether or not it's better than QuikCheck.

Because it's not.
  Wed. 6/24/09 12:26am dustin:

this singers voice sounds so much like Tom Verlaine... i like
  Wed. 6/24/09 12:27am yeah:

make her sweat :-P
  Wed. 6/24/09 12:27am efd:

Rachel, you have to admit it looks pretty bad when combined with all the shattered Abba LPs I found when I got back from my vacation.
  Wed. 6/24/09 12:28am efd:

Dustin: or Brett Anderson...? :)
  Wed. 6/24/09 12:30am coalhard:

rachel is getting more attention than i am --i am jealous
  Wed. 6/24/09 12:31am efd:

i'm sorry, coalhard. I figured you were already being taken care of by other commenteers.
  Wed. 6/24/09 12:31am dustin:

efd: i was actually referring to the king tuff singer
  Wed. 6/24/09 12:34am G:

Anyone confused by the 080 title -- It's not fractured Spanish, it's Catalan, a language spoken in a region of Spain. The capital of the region is -- wait for it -- Barcelona. Very closely related to Spanish. Le llei del plaer = The Law of Pleasure
  Wed. 6/24/09 12:34am coalhard:

this place like the mental hospital i just broke out of--kidding--
  Wed. 6/24/09 12:35am Sybil:

coalhard, you must be much older than you look.
  Wed. 6/24/09 12:35am deaconlight:

I didn't realize Frank Black produced that Art Brut album. Thanks for the info.
  Wed. 6/24/09 12:36am Sybil:

Thanks for the translation, G. I was quite stumped.
  Wed. 6/24/09 12:43am Joe:

"Secretly Canadian" - spectacular.

Also, very much sounds like Blondie. It sounds 20 years old, in a good way.
  Wed. 6/24/09 12:44am Laurie:

The flash stream and also the mp3 128k stream keep rebuffering. It's not as bad now... In fact, it appears fine now. Knock on wood.
  Wed. 6/24/09 12:47am efd:

thanks Laurie - anyone else having streaming problems? Or is it that Florida weather?
  Wed. 6/24/09 12:48am dustin:

fredericks had problems.. i thinks its a florida thing
  Wed. 6/24/09 12:49am deaconlight:

Sounds good. We're sitting here outside by the fish pond. Clear as a bell.
  Wed. 6/24/09 12:50am oregon sean:

no problems here, but I have 1gig coprocessor too
  Wed. 6/24/09 12:59am Michael from the Left Coast:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1GYK2j4Tc0Q&feature=related
for all the db's fans this American Bandstand clip contains a surprise midway through it
  Wed. 6/24/09 1:13am G:

Yeah, at first I thought it was phonetic Spanish by the group, but then I saw Catala and remembered where Barcelona is. I guessed right that there'd be a Catalan-English dictionary online by now. In Spanish it would be "La ley del placer"
  Wed. 6/24/09 1:21am Joe:

I asked Bobby Dylan
I asked The Beatles
I asked Timothy Leary
but he couldn't help me either.
  Wed. 6/24/09 1:21am Michael from the Left Coast:

Rush?
Now I'm certain of it
  Wed. 6/24/09 1:22am efd:

Michael ftw again! :)
  Wed. 6/24/09 1:23am Joe:

NO FUCKING WAY.

AWESOME.
  Wed. 6/24/09 1:23am Michael from the Left Coast:

That warble is unmistakable (and horrible)
  Wed. 6/24/09 1:23am Sybil:

Tonight is definitely strange covers night.
  Wed. 6/24/09 1:29am Danne D:

Evening fellow Funksters :)
  Wed. 6/24/09 1:31am efd:

dHello Danne D!
  Wed. 6/24/09 1:52am Laurie:

I thought they were called Girls at Our Best! Emphatically!
  Wed. 6/24/09 1:53am Danne D:

thx for the comment Laurie - I was starting to think my mere hello had scared everyone off :D
  Wed. 6/24/09 1:53am efd:

whoops! you're right! sorry!
  Wed. 6/24/09 1:54am Joe:

My schadenfreude is wondering how the fantasy league is doing.
  Wed. 6/24/09 1:54am Laurie:

No biggie, Evan! Anyway, it's past my bedtime! Goodnight!
  Wed. 6/24/09 1:56am efd:

Joe, I was wondering the same thing, albeit for different reasons.

And speaking of Schadenfreude, how many runs have the Yankees scored in the last week? Three, maybe?
  Wed. 6/24/09 1:58am Joe:

You just earned yourself a fist-shake.


*shakes fist*
  Wed. 6/24/09 1:58am Danne D:

I'm sliding ever closer to Evan Funk.
1) Ubergoober, 2) Urban Spacemen, 3) paul chain, 4) MrToughs, 5) VanCortlandtRangers, 6) Shaolin Monks, 7)Barre Ks (aka me), 8) Sad Trombones, 9) Lo-fis, 10) EFD's Bill Leefds, 11) Babybunting, 12) Frozen Dopes
  Wed. 6/24/09 1:59am Danne D:

Night Evan and his Funkateers!
  Wed. 6/24/09 1:59am Joe:

Although you get a "nice moves" on getting the Stamey/Holsapple track to work. Was definitely the highlight of the performance. Technical wizardry!

Great shewwwwww.
  Wed. 6/24/09 2:00am Sybil:

G'night Danne!
  Wed. 6/24/09 2:01am Sybil:

And goodnight all... thanks EFD!
  Wed. 6/24/09 2:01am Danne D:

next week I'll either be
a) here celebrating the end of my birthday
or
b) away celebrating the end of my birthday

G'night Sybil *poof*
