Options April 11, 2012: Remembering Richie Teeter, with special guest Andy Shernoff

The Dictators are among a handful of bands that I discovered during my high-school years in the mid-'70s (thanks to my influential friend Jim McIntyre) and have remained an avid fan of to this day. I was still a little too young to have been aware of Go Girl Crazy when it came out, so the first album of theirs I heard was Manifest Destiny. I was hooked instantly by everything from the anthemic "Science Gone Too Far" to the (relatively) softer sounds of "Hey Boys" and the wistful "Sleepin' With The TV On."

The lead singer on those last two songs, and the drummer on that whole album (and its even harder-rocking follow-up Bloodbrothers), was Richie Teeter. He passed away this past Tuesday at the age of 61. Hearing this news was like hearing that I'd lost an old friend that I'd grown up with... I was absolutely crushed. From getting into them in high school to moving to their hometown of NYC for college to the love I still have for their music, The Dictators are one of the bands that I've felt closest to for most of my music-loving life.

I happened to meet Rich completely by chance several years ago, when I went into the Sam Ash drum shop on 48th Street maybe six or seven years ago. I noticed him behind the counter, and saw that his nametag read "Rich Teeter." I was dumbfounded. I asked if he was "THE Rich Teeter," and he laughed and said he guessed he was; this of course prompted an outpouring of assorted inane fanboy comments from yours truly. He then good-naturedly insisted that I inform the kids in the store who worked for him that yes, he was indeed famous! I was only too happy to oblige.

A couple of years ago I bumped into him again, this time at a pizza place in Penn Station. I tried to buy him a slice, and he politely (but firmly) declined. In both of these brief meetings he struck me as a super nice and humble guy, and that sense has been borne out by several remembrances posted by his bandmates Handsome Dick Manitoba, Scott "Top Ten" Kempner, and my guest on this program, Andy Shernoff as well as by longtime fans. When I learned of his passing I knew that I had to pay tribute to his impact on my life musically; I hope you'll enjoy hearing some of his work on this edition of The Evan "Funk" Davies show.

  Wed. 4/11/12 9:21pm Miss Cheri's dog Sammy:

That opening riff (and underlying guitar) from this Stereolab track soiuds like Suzi Quatro's "Can The Can" guitar riff slowed down a notch
  Wed. 4/11/12 9:21pm Van in DC:

Howdy Amanda.
  Wed. 4/11/12 9:22pm Destroit:

I totally respect cheri's dog's request of hoople.

  Wed. 4/11/12 9:23pm Van in DC:

Oh and hi Danne D!
  Wed. 4/11/12 9:23pm Danne D:

cheri having a talking dog seems very NYC '77 to me.
  Wed. 4/11/12 9:23pm Holly in NC:

It was pretty much perfect here today Van, I hope you had a nice day in DC.

efd, Mr. Barron has been warned. Looking forward to Richie Teeter appreciation. And do you know that it's Richard Berry's birthday?

Mike East - I missed Bombino at dc9 last night. I'm sure it was awesome.
  Wed. 4/11/12 9:28pm Danne D:

*wonders if Amanda claims the dogs she walks as dependents*
  Wed. 4/11/12 9:29pm Van in DC:

lol @Danne D. I am taking off Friday to do my taxes at the last minute. ALL of you will be my dependents ha ha ha.
  Wed. 4/11/12 9:29pm Richard from Venezuela:

Hi Danne D and Destroit. all is fine, thanks for asking.
  Wed. 4/11/12 9:30pm miss cheri:

  Wed. 4/11/12 9:30pm Mike East:

oh man! You missed it?! Bummer. I finished taxes last weekend. Feels so good.
  Wed. 4/11/12 9:32pm Destroit:

Van! I expected a full Bambino report:( understand, it happens.
  Wed. 4/11/12 9:32pm Amanda:

Danne -- it was tempting! But they don't live with me, so I don't think I can get away with it.
  Wed. 4/11/12 9:32pm Van in DC:

Yeah, I had asked some friends to go with me, they backed out, and I decided my feet hurt too much. Plus I was really into my beer drinking, so I thought I would just be lazy, not go, and just support him by buying his album :)
  Wed. 4/11/12 9:33pm Holly in NC:

efd: relaying Trd's message from his board:

Ted:
Them is fightin' words!
  Wed. 4/11/12 9:34pm miss cheri:

  Wed. 4/11/12 9:34pm SteveL:

DJ Fight! DJ Fight!
  Wed. 4/11/12 9:35pm Van in DC:

Of course, if anyone wants a report of Joshua Bell with the Academy of St Martin in the Fields at the Strathmore on Friday night this week, I will NOT be missing that! Bought that ticket like 8-9 months ago... :)
  Wed. 4/11/12 9:37pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Sonic Avenues kills it.
  Wed. 4/11/12 9:38pm miss cheri:

efd& danne--don't you worry, i will be back!
  Wed. 4/11/12 9:39pm Destroit:

  Wed. 4/11/12 9:39pm john:

Hey Evan! Looking forward to the 10 o'clock hour, even if it's for the worst of reasons. On a happier note, panel at the Metropolitan Museum Friday night relating to their baseball card collection and the breaking of the color barrier, along with a set by The Baseball Project (plus Mike Mills)!

CarGo with 2 triples tonight - about the only highlight for Fantasy Baseball Team

Enjoying this Pumphouse Gang!

And I totally noticed EFD's Rush reference,I'm keeping a tally
  Wed. 4/11/12 9:44pm Destroit:

As far as Who goes, just buy Tommy & most importantly, Quadrophenia.
  Wed. 4/11/12 9:44pm Danne D:

according to yahoo, CarGo has also pulled the neat trick of scoring 3 runs with only 2 plate appearances
  Wed. 4/11/12 9:46pm Danne D:

@Holly ya know, now that you mention it I never have seen Evan and Vance in the same place. And all 4 letters in Evan's name are in Vance's name as well!
  Wed. 4/11/12 9:46pm Roy Ziegler:

Sounds like nem hooters.
  Wed. 4/11/12 9:46pm Destroit:

Where's my tartan scarf?
  Wed. 4/11/12 9:49pm Jessica:

The worst thing about brain injury is forgetting what might make you better, faster. Thankgawd for marathon email reminders: EFD does it. Feeling better already!
  Wed. 4/11/12 9:49pm Holly in NC:

@Danne - who is Vance?

@Destroit - I politely suggest the 1st 2 singles & Meaty Beaty Big & Bouncy.

@EFD - I love this Sweet lp, and this an underplayed song from same! Thank you!
  Wed. 4/11/12 9:50pm Destroit:

Good idea Dave. I forget, are you a rangers guy Danne? Love John T.
  Wed. 4/11/12 9:50pm Sybil:

Maaaan this sweet song is loverly...
  Wed. 4/11/12 9:51pm G:

sweet!!
  Wed. 4/11/12 9:51pm miss cheri:

no one does funk better then evan!!!
  Wed. 4/11/12 9:51pm Barkevious Shabazz.:

A second Sweet song with cello. Alert Vance.

  Wed. 4/11/12 9:53pm Holly in NC:

So glad the Chrome Cranks have finally put out a new lp.
  Wed. 4/11/12 9:53pm Van in DC:

Am I the only one who absolutely fears asking any FMU DJ for a request? I feel like I need to listen to each DJ's show for another, I don't know, 5 years or so in order to allow myself to request that. HA!
  Wed. 4/11/12 9:54pm Danne D:

The playoffs start FRIDAY, Destroit. I'll pretend I did not read your last comment. http://www.nhl.com/ice/series.htm?season=20112012&series=c
  Wed. 4/11/12 9:54pm Danne D:

I'll never forget who we beat for our first Cup :D
  Wed. 4/11/12 9:55pm Barkevious Shabazz.:

Who wants to request when they know they shit cold?
  Wed. 4/11/12 9:55pm Sybil:

@Van, fear not! They'll either do it or not, but anyway, feedback is feedback (aka no bad publicity0
  Wed. 4/11/12 9:55pm Danne D:

You can make requests, the DJ can say no with impunity that's all :)
  Wed. 4/11/12 9:56pm G:

@Van: My guess is that often they come in with four or more hours of possible tunes to play and three hours of time available, so the last thing they really need is more stress about what to choose... :-)
  Wed. 4/11/12 9:57pm Holly in NC:

Van, I'm totally not scared to ask, but I also realize that due to each dj's vision for his/her show my request will likely not be honored. And that is totally OK. And it never hurts to try!
  Wed. 4/11/12 9:59pm Barkevious Shabazz.:

My kingdom for a "Douchemaster " satin jacket. Sigh.
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:00pm Van in DC:

My fear is not so much from the DJs but from the other listeners.

Of course, I would be constantly requesting Kate Bush, so there is that consideration... ;)
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:00pm Destroit:

Perfectly put Holly, holy crap Mary wing party should be destroying any capability I had at work ....tomorrow.
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:01pm Sybil:

Eh, Van, go for it!
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:01pm Joel:

DFFD.... DFFD. Thanks for this Evan.. thanks very much
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:03pm john:

DFFD indeed.
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:03pm Danne D:

Destroit choosing werk over work :)
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:04pm Danne D:

So how long does claritin take to work?
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:04pm Van in DC:

Sure Sybil...efd playing Kate Bush..wow, that would probably mean the Mayans had 2012 right lol :)
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:05pm Sybil:

Yah Van!


Hey Danne, Holly! Hi all!
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:07pm Van in DC:

@Danne D - about 15-20 minutes I think?
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:07pm john:

Hey Sybil!
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:08pm Sybil:

@Van - I sincerely hope so!
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:08pm Danne D:

@Van here's hoping you're right. Allergies have been kicking my ass all week.

Hiya Sybil :D
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:09pm Sybil:

Hey john! And go Mets!
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:09pm Holly in NC:

@Van - EFD is a master segue artist, I think he could something great with Ms. Kate! But...not tonight, this tribute is well planned.
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:10pm Holly in NC:

Hi Sybil!
Danne, I'm so sorry you still feel so poorly.
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:10pm Van in DC:

Holly, efd has never played Kate. According to the "all artists played by efd" linkie :)
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:10pm dave:

proof of the dictators' awesomeness: their version of "what goes on" might even be better than the feelies.
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:10pm Barkevious Shabazz.:

Boy Howdy!
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:13pm Sybil:

Holly and Danne ... and all you guys...

See you next week! Sadly sinking into the sunset...
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:13pm G:

Va, try not to make too much hay of EFD's "virgin Bush" status.
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:14pm Amanda:

Best Dictators song.
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:14pm john:

Thanks, Sybil! But after the last couple days, the chant's about to become "Let's Go Home..."
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:15pm Barkevious Shabazz.:

Speaking of Science gone too Far, have you seen Big Ang on Mobwives?
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:16pm Holly in NC:

@Van - Never has doesn't necessarily mean "won't"

@G - Virgin Bush heh heh heh (Beavis & Butthead)
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:16pm Frank:

Sad news about Richie Teeter. I remember seeing them at Winterland with the Ramones and Widowmaker (remember them??). Ticket price? Five bucks...
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:16pm Danne D:

g'night Sybil!
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:17pm Van in DC:

Oh I don't really G. Just saying, not preaching on it lol. There is SO MUCH out there it is impossible for all of us to really know what the best stuff is. Luckily, I discovered Kate, myself. Others like Evan, Amanda, Julie, Irene, and most especially Doug, as well as a host of other FMU DJs, clue me in to others I should know of. :)
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:18pm Danne D:

Usually my requests are ideas for premiums or Hoof N Mouth songs. Haven't succeeded there either ;)
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:19pm Sybil:

Citi Field... A good place to be at home. \


G'night all,
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:20pm Danne D:

Dang just a buck?
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:21pm Danne D:

Stay With Me is a great song - Hudson Falcons do a great cover of it.
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:21pm Holly in NC:

@Danne -

Was thinking the same thing
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:22pm Danne D:

Gotta get Noah over to bang on his door.
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:22pm Joe B:

DION has also covered Stay With Me!
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:23pm KevinBK:

Hello
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:26pm SteveL:

Awesome, and well introduced.
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:32pm Van in DC:

@Holly 10:16 yes, but. And this was really stressed to me by another FMU DJ...don't ever pressure any given DJ to play a certain Artist that they don't, well, like. It's freeform for a reason.
Avatar Wed. 4/11/12 10:36pm efd:

someone please reassure me that I successfully dumped the f-word during that interview.
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:37pm Van in DC:

An efd miscue is about as rare as anyone at WFMU outside of Julie playing Toyah. Just never happens. Yes you did efd.
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:37pm 12539:

Didn't hear a thing here.
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:37pm Danne D:

Well the more someone fits a DJ's show - the better chance they might play the request. I can probably count on 1 hand the number of requests I've ever made though. I usually don't tell museums where should hang the paintings either :D

One exception to the request rule (or at least suggestion rule) of course is Underwater Theme Park - Meghan seeks suggestions that fit the upcoming theme :)
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:38pm Danne D:

Almost put the 'ef in EFD ;)
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:39pm Van in DC:

@Danne D - nicely put, thanks.
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:39pm Danne D:

Rockies-Giants game is 9-7 right now. In the 4th inning.
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:40pm SteveL:

Almost is a good thing when worried about dumping. Well done, nice interview and a great song to follow with.
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:40pm G:

coinage: "Shernoff fluster"

I didn't hear the F word
Avatar Wed. 4/11/12 10:42pm efd:

Thanks Stevel and all, I appreciate it.
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:42pm Mike East:

@Van - I requested moe tucker on Ken's show this morning and it got played...though he actually was taking requests. Interactive radio is a pretty cool thing, especially in a freeform setting!
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:43pm Van in DC:

Evan you are clear. If the F-bomb had crossed my ears I would have known immediately and probably immediately not only killed my connection, but called Ken the Station Manager, Liz, AND the EPA, FDA, FCPA, RIAA, WWE, and every other organization on the entire planet to complain.

Ha. ;)
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:44pm FCC:

Fucking shit, foiled again.
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:45pm SteveL:

Alright! Love this riff. (Just a touch of Alice Cooper's Dead Babies, which is always nice.)
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:45pm Danne D:

A good start is asking DJs how they feel about requests :)

I love the interaction of the comments boards (obviously) but still like that there are a handful of shows that don't employ them, giving them a more old-school feel.
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:45pm Van in DC:

@FCC - ha! "FORGET YOU MY FRIEND!" LOL
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:46pm Holly in NC:

Just got this message from Brother JT, if anyone's interested:

Dear friends,
My apologies for the intrusion, but I just wanted to let you know there is a new Brother JT album available.
It's called "THE SVELTENESS OF BOOGIETUDE". I don't know what that means.
If you're interested you can stream songs or get mp3's at:
http://brotherjt.bandcamp.com/
Or go to www.brotherjt.com if you prefer the usual handmade CD-R's. There is also a link there to get the album for free as a zipfile, for the more technically inclined.
And, in closing, just put together this video for the song "Brother JT": hope a chuckle or titter may be induced...

  Wed. 4/11/12 10:46pm Danne D:

Flyers came back from a 3-0 deficit and beat the Penguins in OT. That series has instant classic written all over it.
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:47pm SteveL:

Danne D: Ditto on the boards and lack thereof. I love Dave the Spazz and Teenage Wasteland, because I just HAVE TO LISTEN instead of getting geeky (which I also love)
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:48pm miss cheri:

evan & danne i know i'm a woman but i just might check out the three stooges movie this weekend,btw are you two going to see it also?
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:49pm Ancient Times:

3 dollars at the door, not 2!!!!
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:49pm Van in DC:

That had a great beat and, no, wait, it didn't at all. Never mind.
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:49pm Mike East:

I'm with you, Danne D. Glen Jones is probably my favorite DJ of all time and he has no playlist. WFMU has it all!
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:49pm SteveL:

Three bucks? Forget it!!
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:49pm Ancient Times:

@miss cheri: Why you, I oughtaaaaa....
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:50pm Danne D:

@Holly that's awesome :) My friend's band Elk City has done stuff with Brother JT.
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:50pm Danne D:

@Ancient Times - gotta make up for those $1 tickets I guess.
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:51pm Danne D:

YEAH!
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:51pm Amanda:

Other best Dictators song.
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:52pm miss cheri:

sorry to trouble you guys,,efd & danne
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:53pm Van in DC:

Want noise? Loudness? Toyah - I Explode!!!! Greatness!! :)
Avatar Wed. 4/11/12 10:53pm efd:

cheri, I am not going to see the three stooges movie this weekend, even though I know I'm not a woman.

Amanda, the number of best Dictators songs is very close to the number of Dictators songs IMHO.
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:56pm Mike East:

I had a song with the chorus, "We're the Dictators of Rock & Roll" People always asked if it was a tribute to the Dictators, which it wasn't, but they asked often enough, that I just told them it was.
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:56pm G:

I *know* a woman? Does that count?
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:58pm Destroit:

I was totally keeping tabs on that Danne, as I watch the wings fail. Gonna be a classic indeed. Thanks efd, and all people for making this a fun/board listening/reading experience. Group hug you fucks.
  Wed. 4/11/12 10:58pm Andrea True:

Tributes bum me out. Got any coke?
  Wed. 4/11/12 11:00pm Van in DC:

It amazes me still how much I know of music that I don't see on WFMU. What's more amazing is how much I am still learning from WFMU, how much I don't know / never knew. Humbling. And consternating. All at the same time.
  Wed. 4/11/12 11:00pm Destroit:

Love Andrea True already,
  Wed. 4/11/12 11:14pm john:

other other other best taters song. Like all the rest.
  Wed. 4/11/12 11:15pm G:

@Anrea True Dat: Things go better with coke, I heard somewhere.
  Wed. 4/11/12 11:15pm Thierry:

All around very melancholic. Is it because of today's sad news, or because we sailed so far away from this great early NY punk scene?
  Wed. 4/11/12 11:16pm Danne D:

so 37 minutes ago the Rockies-Giants game was 9-7 in the 4th inning.

It is now 13-7 in the 5th inning. Gonna be a long night in Denver.
  Wed. 4/11/12 11:17pm Danne D:

I think EFD needs to have Adam Warrock create a Ticket Salad Sandwich Time theme. I think that's your solution.
  Wed. 4/11/12 11:18pm G:

Hair bands drove punk out of the public eye. Duh!
  Wed. 4/11/12 11:18pm G:

@Danne: Not exactly an easy assignment, there.
  Wed. 4/11/12 11:19pm Baseballs:

The air is so t-h-i-i-i-n in Denver. WHEEEEEE!!!!!!!!
  Wed. 4/11/12 11:20pm miss cheri:

so danne,,are you going to check out that new "three stooges" flick?
  Wed. 4/11/12 11:20pm Baseballs:

speaking of nutty
  Wed. 4/11/12 11:21pm Danne D:

That's why you bring in a heavy hitter like Warrock.

@cheri I think some stuff should be left alone. The Stooges falls into that category.
  Wed. 4/11/12 11:22pm Baseballs:

Denver: 42 minutes of actual playing time. 23 minutes of breaks for commericals between innings. 79 minutes of pitching changes.
  Wed. 4/11/12 11:24pm Barkevious Shabazz:

"a q+ a with former members of Hole. " We dare you to be interested!
  Wed. 4/11/12 11:24pm G:

@Danne: But here's the question that Adam W. really needs to ask himself: Does he want the title "Ticket Salad Sandwich Theme" in his discography?
  Wed. 4/11/12 11:27pm Danne D:

16-7 after 5 innings. Rockies have scored in every inning.
  Wed. 4/11/12 11:27pm Danne D:

@G He does if it's billed "Evan Funk Davies' Ticket Salad Sandwich Time"
  Wed. 4/11/12 11:29pm G:

up to him and EFD, then. Perhaps EFD has compromising photos from Adam's in-studio visit, or something...
  Wed. 4/11/12 11:29pm dave:

in some alternate universe where everything is perfect forever, somone releases a split single of "oscillation" and fugazi's "arpeggiator"
  Wed. 4/11/12 11:30pm miss cheri:

well evan & danne i really hate to split while the partys still going but i got to get up early,, night danne & evan the king of funk!!!
  Wed. 4/11/12 11:30pm G:

@dave: or maybe an EP with a cover of "devastator"
  Wed. 4/11/12 11:31pm Danne D:

night cheri
  Wed. 4/11/12 11:35pm ADL:

Wow, this Golden Boys is great. Different sound, but has a similar vibe to another Austin band, Golden Bear.
  Wed. 4/11/12 11:36pm Danne D:

all non-pitchers that have been in the game have at least 1 hit. All but Scutaro have at least 2 (including a pinch-hitter that went 2 for 2)
  Wed. 4/11/12 11:36pm glenn:

it's pretty rare for a team to score a run in every inning. 7 times in the n.l., never in the a.l.. colorado was the last team to do it, in 1999.
  Wed. 4/11/12 11:37pm Danne D:

@glenn wow, knew it was rare but never knew it never happened in the A.L. funny when you consider they have the DH.

Colorado has a guy on 2nd, one out, to try and keep it going.
  Wed. 4/11/12 11:38pm Mike East:

I'm digging this new dr. john
  Wed. 4/11/12 11:39pm Danne D:

me too, Mike!
  Wed. 4/11/12 11:39pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Sounds like they simultaneously lifted the backing vocals from she's a rainbow and time of the season.
  Wed. 4/11/12 11:40pm Danne D:

I jinxed it. End of 6, still 16-7
  Wed. 4/11/12 11:43pm glenn:

  Wed. 4/11/12 11:45pm Danne D:

lol - Glenn did you see the date of that post? still pretty cool. Actually more than I thought there'd be
Avatar Wed. 4/11/12 11:46pm efd:

oh hi again everyone! Yeah, I wasn't sure about that Dr. John but I liked that track! Haven't checked out the rest of the album yet, though.

Crazy baseball tonight!

Man, almost quittin' time. Thanks for providing the tunes, efd.
Avatar Wed. 4/11/12 11:52pm efd:

My pleasure Mike, thanks for providing the ears!

Thanks all for listening, greatly appreciated as always!
  Wed. 4/11/12 11:54pm Danne D:

whoa that comments mangler is cool!
  Wed. 4/11/12 11:56pm glenn:

the reactions = the buzzcocks with morrisey on speed singing.
  Wed. 4/11/12 11:58pm Danne D:

I have to dig into those archives of yours, Kenzo!

Thanks for your usual excellence, Evan. Fantastic Richie Teeter tribute and interview with Andy Shernoff (he has great taste in DJs)

Take care everyone!
