Every show starts with the ’70s! We’ll rediscover forgotten rockers, revisit unfairly maligned disco beats and replay power-pop favorites. Next: plenty of new releases, occasional live bands and more. Don’t let the nickname confuse you.

Options August 17, 2011: LIMIÑANAS and APB live sets!

Listen to this show: | Add or read comments

One of the hottest bands of the past two years and an iconic post-punk band that dates back to the early '80s both play live tonight on The Evan "Funk" Davies Show! France's Limiñanas released two killer singles in 2010 (one of which, "Je Ne Suis Pas Très Drogue," was efd's #1 single of the year) and followed those up with an outstanding full-length LP on the Trouble In Mind label. Their fuzz-filled French garage-pop is at once familiar and unique.

APB were the first band to play live on my show back in 2006, and they return for a second appearance! Best known for their post-punk classic "(I'd Like To) Shoot You Down," the band is about to release its latest album Jaguar on the Oatcake label. They're in town for dates at the Brighton Bar in Long Branch NJ, Mirelles in Westbury Long Island (My Father's Place 40th Anniv. show), and managed to fit in a stop at WFMU as well.


Very special thanks to Dave B, Mo Tuffy, Slocker, Bill & Lisa, and DJ Del for their invaluable assistance this evening.

  Wed. 8/17/11 9:26pm Stevel:

I love "Live" live. Terri T had a great set on Sunday, repeated song and all. THAT'S radio!
  Wed. 8/17/11 9:27pm Julie + sangria:

  Wed. 8/17/11 9:35pm Kat:

@J + s probably good advice ;-)
  Wed. 8/17/11 9:35pm Julie + sangria:

too late now cheri I already had sangria

Delta 5 = :-)
  Wed. 8/17/11 9:37pm Jeff In Hawaii:

Delta 5 = :-)
  Wed. 8/17/11 9:38pm Kat:

@J + s I think so. He was certainly no angel.
  Wed. 8/17/11 9:38pm FoT:

If you had that much sangria, a mudslide is Totally Not Recommended.
  Wed. 8/17/11 9:40pm Stevel:

Not to be a geek, but GREAT MIX! Bring it!!
  Wed. 8/17/11 9:41pm Joe B:

sounds great!
  Wed. 8/17/11 9:41pm John L.:

According to a book on Mitchum, he got John Wayne stoned, was quite the expert on different grades of weed, and was arrested for posession.
  Wed. 8/17/11 9:43pm Joe B:

hey John!
  Wed. 8/17/11 9:44pm John L.:

  Wed. 8/17/11 10:10pm Danne D:

Hi Funk Fans :)
Great show so far EFD :) - though I missed the EFD theme :(

I like the idea of the EFD live music Double-header. Ernie Banks would be proud.
  Wed. 8/17/11 10:12pm cheri:

heeeeey danne what's up?
  Wed. 8/17/11 10:12pm Danne D:

I see that Sangria has taken over from Clay as Julie's partner in crime.

Hiya cheri, not too much, just enjoying the show :)
  Wed. 8/17/11 10:14pm Stevel:

That was edf-ing fantastic.
  Wed. 8/17/11 10:14pm Julie + sangria:

i DON'T think the cake shop has actual cake :(
  Wed. 8/17/11 10:14pm FoT:

Perpignan is a funky area in far southern France, in the Pyrenees mountains, not anywhere near the hub of France in Paris
  Wed. 8/17/11 10:15pm Danne D:

Actually, they do, Julie :) Lots of baked goods upstairs, music downstairs - saw Care Bears on Fire a few months ago there.
  Wed. 8/17/11 10:15pm Danne D:

I think it's safe to assume that that is cheri's favorite nyc venue.
  Wed. 8/17/11 10:15pm Julie + sangria:

ohhh ok...Love Care Bears on fire ;)
  Wed. 8/17/11 10:15pm cheri:

  Wed. 8/17/11 10:16pm cheri:

  Wed. 8/17/11 10:18pm Stevel:

  Wed. 8/17/11 10:19pm Julie + sangria:

I want a pink monkey bird
  Wed. 8/17/11 10:19pm Stevel:

Live is the best! Kid Congo is well worth another track!
  Wed. 8/17/11 10:21pm Holly in NC:

  Wed. 8/17/11 10:22pm Stevel:

  Wed. 8/17/11 10:23pm efd:

  Wed. 8/17/11 10:27pm Joe B:

  Wed. 8/17/11 10:58pm Kat:

I don't know what's funnier, using Piltdown Man as a metaphor in a pop song, or calling your band "The Guitars"
  Wed. 8/17/11 11:00pm Danne D:

G'night cheri - watch out for those angry care bears!
  Wed. 8/17/11 11:00pm Julie + sangria:
