The lazy calm at the week's start. A few live performances included, but mainly music with an ear tilted toward string-driven things. (Visit homepage.)

(Irene Trudel with The Left Banke's Tom Finn)



Live performance by The Left Banke and chat with founder Tom Finn and Producer Ralph Affoumado.
 
Legendary NYC baroque pop band The Left Banke is back on the scene with shows at Brooklyn's Littlefield July 20th, 2011 and in August at Bearsville Theatre in Woodstock. Original members Tom Finn and George Cameron joined forces with singer Mike Fornatale, Gripweed Rick Reil, Losers Lounge founder Joe McGinty and a few other pals. The band held court for Irene in WFMU's studio B on a very hot Sunday. Tom Finn, along with longtime friend, producer and arranger Ralph Affoumado, dropped by to let you hear the result and talk about The Left Banke's rich past, present and future.

Hey Irene. Finally got around to watching "On the Beach" after your "post apocalyptic movie recommendation show." Geez, what a downer.
  Mon. 7/18/11 12:37pm v k:

  Mon. 7/18/11 12:44pm still b/p:

I knew it was "Shades of Gray" after two bars, although I ain't heard it in who knows how many decades.
  Mon. 7/18/11 12:47pm wildneil:

Hey, the Monkees ROCK...too bad their original songs they wrote and played was released the same week (and was eclipsed by ) as Sargent Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band.....everybody disses the Monkees, but EVERYBODY knows their work...
  Mon. 7/18/11 12:54pm Van:

Greetings Irene, listeners
  Mon. 7/18/11 12:56pm zoot:

Yowza! I feel like I'm back in junior high (that's what we called it back then), filled with anquish, despair, and longing.
  Mon. 7/18/11 12:57pm Wild Neil:

Props to Irene for her magnificent musical taste!
  Mon. 7/18/11 12:57pm annie:

  Mon. 7/18/11 1:06pm Big Lunk:

@Mike. It sounded pretty damn good even with the wrong verse
  Mon. 7/18/11 1:12pm J J:

Whoa. I had no idea The Left Banke reformed. How'd that come about?
  Mon. 7/18/11 1:13pm Mike Fornatale:

Littlefield: www.littlefieldnyc.com

  Mon. 7/18/11 1:15pm miketp:

  Mon. 7/18/11 1:17pm Pete:

Great song! Great use of Lydian mode!
  Mon. 7/18/11 1:18pm Pidgemont:

Irene ... ask him about Steven Tyler's (from Aerosmith) early involvement. I'm curious about that story.
  Mon. 7/18/11 1:18pm Bad Ronald:

"Pretty Ballerina" is an amazing tune.
btw - The Dickies do an excellent cover of it on Idjit Savant...
  Mon. 7/18/11 1:18pm Carmichael:

I also love Desiree and Walk Away Renee.
  Mon. 7/18/11 1:18pm Carmichael:

Michael McKean (Spinal Tap) was also involved at one point.
  Mon. 7/18/11 1:20pm drewo:

This is a wonderful session Irene. The Left Banke are all-time greats. Thanks!
  Mon. 7/18/11 1:20pm Edzo:

Alice Cooper does an excellent version of Petty Ballerina.
  Mon. 7/18/11 1:27pm Dale:

I met Frankie from the fruit gum company a couple of weeks ago. Really nice guy, no pretensions that the music was more important than it was. They tour around still, him and another original member with some younger guys.
  Mon. 7/18/11 1:29pm Joe R:

The Bryant Hotel looks like it was very close to the Brill Bldg and others in the area which had music studios, etc. My brother - a bass player in another band - claimed that he sat in part of the recording of "Walk Away Renee" in one of those buildings.
  Mon. 7/18/11 1:32pm Mike Fornatale:

Ladybug Transistor at 8, LB at 8:45 or so.
  Mon. 7/18/11 1:34pm ?:

The Bryant Hotel is now the Ameritania, apparently (45th + Bway)
  Mon. 7/18/11 1:36pm Joe R:

@?: I think you mean 54th Street?
  Mon. 7/18/11 1:38pm Carmichael:

  Mon. 7/18/11 1:40pm ?:

  Mon. 7/18/11 1:50pm miketp:

the empty sidewalk on my block are not the same this line kills me
  Mon. 7/18/11 1:50pm postmanpaul:

Would have liked to have had some Left Banke vinyl on the turntable in the 70's here in the UK.... maybe a European tour is on the books....
  Mon. 7/18/11 1:53pm JJ Moth:

That sounded amazing chaps.

  Mon. 7/18/11 2:35pm Mike East:

I don't think I listen to enough Tim Buckley. Any particularly good records to recommend?
  Mon. 7/18/11 2:37pm Suzie:

Goodbye & Hello's good. There's one with a song called "The River" which is really nice. I forget the album title though.
  Mon. 7/18/11 2:40pm Mike East:

I shall google. Thanks, Suzie
  Mon. 7/18/11 2:40pm (mta) Tony:

Suzie, it's from "Blue Afternoon."
  Mon. 7/18/11 2:42pm Carmichael:

  Mon. 7/18/11 2:48pm Detroit Mac:

Another one of those FMU days where I think my itunes has dropped the program and has defaulted to my own playlists. Wrong again. It is FMU!
  Mon. 7/18/11 2:49pm Joe R:

Waterloo Sunset - the most beautiful song EVER!
  Mon. 7/18/11 2:49pm jill:

  Mon. 7/18/11 2:49pm Listener Bill:

Odd fact: Status Quo placed 30 albums in the British Top 20 (including four No. 1's) since 1972, but only hit the U.S. album chart once
  Mon. 7/18/11 2:50pm SWami:

I heard the Mosquitoes do an acoustic version of Waterloo Sunset in 82-83 at Folk City. Sublime.
  Mon. 7/18/11 2:50pm dc pat:

KINKS!
  Mon. 7/18/11 2:50pm Listener Bill:

My favorite Kinks' song - Thanks
