Options The Evan "Funk" Davies Show: Playlist from December 1, 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.

Good evening, Mr. Davies.

  Tue. 12/1/09 11:41pm efd:

Jeff, yes, absolutely. Should be up on the FMA in a few days.

And go swing by the Mutter Museum before the Ted Leo show. Make a day of it!
  Wed. 12/2/09 12:51am efd:

There you go - now your whole Philly day trip is planned out. Thanks, A!
  Wed. 12/2/09 1:09am A:

Nothing complements Ted Leo and cheese steaks like a formaldehyded tumor from Grover Cleveland's jaw. And yes, that is, verbatim, Philadelphia's tourism slogan for 2010.
  Wed. 12/2/09 1:22am Michael from the Left Coast:

Thor!!!
He's a very nice fellow-. My friends produced his last album and I actually sing backing vocals (uncredited) on a track.
  Wed. 12/2/09 1:23am stingy d:

long ass day man. what the fuck is up tho?
  Wed. 12/2/09 1:24am Doc:

That thor was a good jam, girlschool also
  Wed. 12/2/09 1:26am efd:

Michael, by "last album" do you mean "Thor Against The World," or was there another one that I missed? Or do you mean this new one?

Greetings, Stingy and Doc!
  Wed. 12/2/09 1:27am Doc:

Hey, efd. Great Upper Crust show the other week, huh?
  Wed. 12/2/09 1:29am Michael from the Left Coast:

I believe it was Thor Against the world but I can't even remember--the track was a good track (as were the others on the album) and he was really nice. I now know how those session guys don't remember tracks they played on--I can't remember the name of the track although I remember the session.
  Wed. 12/2/09 1:29am Terre T:

That Manikin set RULED!!! Good one bro!
ALso here's a nutty informational note: One of the girlls' *father* in that THE GIRLS AT DAWN 7" u played is in The EFFIGIES! Ya know that great Chicago hardcore band from the 8Ts!? Awesomeness passed down in the genes!
  Wed. 12/2/09 1:30am stingy d:

yo everybody shut up!




i like this song.
  Wed. 12/2/09 1:34am stingy d:

just to be very very very clear i liked teenage filmstars.
  Wed. 12/2/09 1:34am Michael from the Left Coast:

EFD--it was Thor Against the World and it was either the title track or Megaton Man (maybe both).
  Wed. 12/2/09 1:35am efd:

tt, glad you enjoyed that set and thanks for the info on the Girls At Dawn girl!

Michael, funny thing is I've had Thor Against The World in my CD case for the last several weeks but never found the right time toi play it - and then tonight, there was the new CD!
  Wed. 12/2/09 1:35am Tom ( The Bactrian Support NetWork ):

ThaT Manikin set was GREAT EFD !!!
and the rest of set too as always !!!
  Wed. 12/2/09 1:36am Michael from the Left Coast:

Efd--did you know about the Thor DVD compilation, compiled by my friend and all around cool guy Frank Meyer (he co-wrote On the Road with the Ramones book)
Thor Against ... is a really solid record
  Wed. 12/2/09 1:37am stingy d:

go to death by audio friday? my friend mike got brutally assaulted and needs help. benefit concert! its on the wfmu blog.
  Wed. 12/2/09 1:38am Joshua K:

Everyones playin the heck out of this david bowie. Maybe because its so good?
  Wed. 12/2/09 1:43am efd:

yeah, there's some good stuff on that Bowie reissue.

Stingy - link and/or details?

Michael - yeah, I really liked Thor Against when it came out. That DVD sounds familiar but I haven't seen it.

Tom - thanks!

Doc - that Upper Crust show was great - can't believe they played so long! Made up for the fact I hadn't seen them in something like 3 years.
  Wed. 12/2/09 1:53am stingy d:
