Options The Evan "Funk" Davies Show: Playlist from January 5, 2010 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. 1/5/10 11:11pm Vanda Young:

1974
  Tue. 1/5/10 11:12pm Vanda Young:

it sounded like the future
  Tue. 1/5/10 11:12pm john:

Record nerd tendency dept.: I bought the new vinyl reissue of Trans-Europe Express the other day. I swear even though I've been listening to that record for 30 years it sounded almost like I'd never heard it. Even the jokes are funnier.
  Tue. 1/5/10 11:13pm efd:

Hi everyone! I'm trying to figure out whether to let this play through for the remaining 17 minutes and 30 seconds of the track. Album version, don't you know.
  Tue. 1/5/10 11:14pm john:

Here's a compromise: play it twice.
  Tue. 1/5/10 11:15pm efd:

...
  Tue. 1/5/10 11:15pm dave:

look, you're already this far into it, it's pretty much a lost cause. might as well let it play.
  Tue. 1/5/10 11:15pm Terre T:

Har! U shudda waited til the "Midnite Ticket Oasis" segment!
  Tue. 1/5/10 11:16pm AZ:

Play it!!!!
  Tue. 1/5/10 11:16pm Vanda Young:

drop some break beats and segue to Single Ladies
  Tue. 1/5/10 11:16pm dave:

.... not that i'm, y'know, biased.
  Tue. 1/5/10 11:16pm lisa jane p:

definitely let it play!
  Tue. 1/5/10 11:17pm efd:

this might be a good time to bring back the "Justine from Math The Band" drop-ins...
  Tue. 1/5/10 11:17pm yammerskooner:

Thanks for playing that Bowie track covered by the Bay City Rollers. Didn't think a knockoff of Rebel, Rebel could sound go good.
  Tue. 1/5/10 11:18pm Vanda Young:

I hope you kids got your ear buds in
  Tue. 1/5/10 11:19pm dave:

i've decided to redirect the entirety of my FMU pledge for this year to buying justine from math the band a vocoder, on the condition that she produce a drop-in to be used the next time efd plays kraftwerk.
  Tue. 1/5/10 11:20pm Terre T:

If u let the piece play thru it will probably the only time its been played in its entirety on WFMU ---WITHOUT it being remixed or electro-fiddled with!
  Tue. 1/5/10 11:21pm dave:

not to dominate the playlist or anything, but holy CRAP does this version sound better than the original cd release of autobahn. it's like the original was recorded through a few inches of cotton batting.
  Tue. 1/5/10 11:23pm Vanda Young:

I heard Kraftwerk is trying to buy Cadbury
  Tue. 1/5/10 11:24pm efd:

Negotiations began at the start of the song. The deal will be closed by the end of it.
  Tue. 1/5/10 11:24pm dave:

here's hoping they succeed. i love their marconi and cheese.
  Tue. 1/5/10 11:26pm efd:

5 minutes to go!
  Tue. 1/5/10 11:26pm mr h:

Thanx for playin the kraftwerk! Inventors of a genre always deserve some airplay
  Tue. 1/5/10 11:27pm Vanda Young:

Now, everybody, Go GAS UP!!!
  Tue. 1/5/10 11:28pm efd:

ahhh screw it, I'm cutting it off!
  Tue. 1/5/10 11:28pm efd:

(just kidding)
  Tue. 1/5/10 11:28pm dave:

NOOOOOOOOOOOoooooooooooo
  Tue. 1/5/10 11:34pm Jeff from St.Paul:

Ahoy fellow listeners!
  Tue. 1/5/10 11:34pm AZ:

They reissued everything from Autobahn on; some (like Computer World) aren't available in the US for contractual reasons.
  Tue. 1/5/10 11:39pm efd:

Ahoy, Jeff!

AZ, thanks for the KW info!
  Tue. 1/5/10 11:41pm Jeff from St.Paul:

I suppose it would be silly of me to ask if anyone else watched the USA v. Canada IIHF Gold Medal game this evening.
  Tue. 1/5/10 11:42pm E.L.:

37th!!!
  Tue. 1/5/10 11:43pm efd:

Jeff, first of all you'd have to explain (at least to me) what IIHF stands for.

Hi, E.L.! Did you really just count all the comments??
  Tue. 1/5/10 11:44pm Joe:

38th! IN YO FACE
  Tue. 1/5/10 11:44pm Vanda Young:

ah, She presaged the popular 70's deodorant applicator
  Tue. 1/5/10 11:45pm E.L.:

Yeah it's the latest iPhone app. iCountEFDplaylistcomments.
  Tue. 1/5/10 11:46pm efd:

obviously Joe hasn't downloaded the update. Off by 1, mister!
  Tue. 1/5/10 11:53pm kamper:

Thiis tune is freaking me out, man.
  Tue. 1/5/10 11:55pm Lu:

That was awesome- too short! Play it again
  Tue. 1/5/10 11:56pm AZ:

That "Spirit of Joy" comp is terrific--dozens of fantastic tracks!
  Tue. 1/5/10 11:56pm kamper:

Who got it for you, efd? That is a good friend.
  Wed. 1/6/10 12:01am Jeff from St.Paul:

EFD, sorry for not explaining but IIHF = International Ice Hockey Federation. This was the Juniors Championship, and Canada has won it 5 years in a row. Team USA beat them in overtime on their Ice in Saskatoon to win the Gold!
  Wed. 1/6/10 12:12am Spoony:

This Boris single is amazing. I think there are supposed to be more in this series. How are they compared to this one? Be honest with me. I deserve it.

Great show tonight, Evan!
  Wed. 1/6/10 12:13am efd:

Kamper, it was the most good of all possible friends. And later I'll be playing something else from another present I received from the same friend.

Jeff, no apology necessary - I think I was being unnecessarily flip. Go Team USA! (Although, I have a soft spot for Canada too as regular listeners know.
  Wed. 1/6/10 12:14am efd:

thanks, Spoony! Haven't heard the other singles in the series, but you're correct that this one kills!
  Wed. 1/6/10 12:16am trs:

good game, good game..
  Wed. 1/6/10 12:17am Jeff from St.Paul:

Evan "Flip" Davies? Canada should be fine, they won it five years in a row prior to this. It was just an extremely exciting game to watch.

As for that Boris single - awesome. I am guessing its a limited print of 25, 3 on Rainbow vinyl and are now going for $200 on Ebay.
  Wed. 1/6/10 12:21am Jeff from St.Paul:

Holy cow! Parry Gripp finally got a jingle off the ground! Awesome!
  Wed. 1/6/10 12:23am E.L.:

I could sure go for a breakfast hoagie right about now. In my mind they have muffin mayonnaise.
  Wed. 1/6/10 12:26am AZ:

Bobbie Gentry!
  Wed. 1/6/10 12:27am Spoony:

Wait for The Cream. Aretha Franklin, please.
  Wed. 1/6/10 12:27am Vanda Young:

Ms Gentry, if you please
  Wed. 1/6/10 12:31am cathy lane:

happy 2010 evan,,,did you have a great new years? i hope it was specail,,=)=)
  Wed. 1/6/10 12:33am efd:

"cathy lane"? Really?
  Wed. 1/6/10 12:37am dave:

it's probably toni daytona's night off.
  Wed. 1/6/10 12:37am lisa jane p:

My vote is for Gentry. Really.
  Wed. 1/6/10 12:39am efd:

OK, I hereby declare Bobbie Gentry the winner. Stand by,
  Wed. 1/6/10 12:40am cathy lane:

evan--are you shocked?? after all it is a new year,,,
  Wed. 1/6/10 12:40am Jeff from St.Paul:

I am attempting a request. "905" by The Who, off of "Who are You".
  Wed. 1/6/10 12:54am lisa jane p:

YAY!
  Wed. 1/6/10 12:54am efd:

jeez, way to slip her own name into the lyrics!
  Wed. 1/6/10 12:55am efd:

Jeff, that is an intriguing and bold request! I'm going to have to mull it over for a bit.
  Wed. 1/6/10 12:57am Jeff from St.Paul:

No pressure, but I dare you to find a better song about a clone than "905"
  Wed. 1/6/10 12:57am Vanda Young:

I counted 2 instruments
  Wed. 1/6/10 12:58am cathy lane:

evan i like bobbie gentry,,also what do think of the new persona???
  Wed. 1/6/10 12:59am randy in NC:

efd, that re-mastered KW sounded great. We wore Autobahn and TEE out way back when. It's pretty amazing, they did all that stuff before the days of MIDI, samplers, digital synths, Ableton Live, lap tops, etc., etc.
  Wed. 1/6/10 1:01am efd:

cathy, I hadn't previously made the connection that the personas (personae?) changed with the new year. I think it's too early to give an opinion on this one.

Hey, Randy! Glad you enjoyed the Kraftwerk, and I agree with your observation.
  Wed. 1/6/10 1:02am cathy lane:

goodnite evan,,see you soon,
  Wed. 1/6/10 1:03am Joe:

My man Harry sounds like he's had a few adult beverages in that clip...
  Wed. 1/6/10 1:06am efd:

speaking of adult beverages, Joe, how come you don't regale the efd audience with your tales of being photographed for Spin magazine all bloodied? You think I don't read Marty McS's playlist comments?
  Wed. 1/6/10 1:07am Vanda Young:

it's Liquid Something anyway
  Wed. 1/6/10 1:08am cathy lane:

evan just one final thought..you make all us ladies hearts melt!!! love ya=)=)
  Wed. 1/6/10 1:12am efd:

alla is actually from chicago, and you pronounced it correctly!
  Wed. 1/6/10 1:13am Kat:

how the hell did I get your initials on my comment?
  Wed. 1/6/10 1:14am Kat:

I'm in Chicago. Coworker of mine plays live with them occasionally.
  Wed. 1/6/10 1:15am Vanda Young:

Ode has been getting so overplayed lately
  Wed. 1/6/10 1:18am efd:

hi Kat, I was wondering the same thing myself! Thanks for the additional Alla info.
  Wed. 1/6/10 1:22am toni daytona:

evan i totaly agree what cathy lane just posted! nite
  Wed. 1/6/10 1:28am efd:

alright then, it's unanimous!
  Wed. 1/6/10 1:35am Jeff from St.Paul:

This "my purgatory years" song is great! Its like a safe afternoon special version of "Institutionalized" by Suicidal Tendencies.
  Wed. 1/6/10 1:39am AZ:

Before the Rembrandts, I believe Wilde was in Great Buildings...
  Wed. 1/6/10 1:41am Joe:

I will tell my Spin story when you -spin- some Screaming Females. Or Jeff the brotherhood. Or Surfer Blood. (All those present at said event)
  Wed. 1/6/10 1:46am Joe B:

The Sights return to NYC Feb. 26-27!!!!

  Wed. 1/6/10 1:46am AZ:

Zowie! That Love Collector 45 was spectacular!
  Wed. 1/6/10 1:49am efd:

thanks, Joe! Do you know where the Sights will be playing?
  Wed. 1/6/10 1:53am Joe B:

Feb 27 - Cake Shop

Feb 26 - Union Hall (i think!)

breakfast hoagiefest eh? upping the ante!
  Wed. 1/6/10 1:54am Joe B:

I used to have this Linoleum CD ... I don't recall it sounding this good! damn!
  Wed. 1/6/10 1:54am Joe:

Cake Shop? Done.

They have CAKE. It's really genius.
  Wed. 1/6/10 1:55am Joe:

PS Evan I might actually have to send you some Surfer Blood. They have this song that sounds like the Cars that's riiiight up your alley.

Joe B. - what up. Keep rockin'.
  Wed. 1/6/10 1:54pm nasok:
