Options The Evan "Funk" Davies Show: Playlist from November 28, 2012 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.

  Wed. 11/28/12 9:05pm ALL CAPS MAN!!!!:

OH YEAH! TIME FOR THE EVAN DAVIES FUNK SHOW!
  Wed. 11/28/12 9:06pm Danne D:

Hi ALL CAPS MAN :)
Hi G :)
  Wed. 11/28/12 9:06pm G:

ZON! :)
  Wed. 11/28/12 9:07pm sweet cheri:

happy holidays evan and to one & all. let the funk begin!! lookin forward to a fantastic show evan.
  Wed. 11/28/12 9:07pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Zon? Styx tribute band?
  Wed. 11/28/12 9:07pm phat:

It's been quite a long time since I've listened to Teardrop Explodes. Nice.
  Wed. 11/28/12 9:08pm G:

wiki: "Zon was a progressive rock band formed in Toronto, Canada, in 1977. The band consisted of vocalist Denton Young, guitarist Brian Miller, bassist Jim Samson, drummer Kim Hunt, and keyboard player Howard Helm. The band released three albums over the course of its career."
  Wed. 11/28/12 9:09pm Barkevious Shabazz:

and the julian cope revival starts.........now?
  Wed. 11/28/12 9:09pm phat:

I'm not opposed to a Julian Cope revival.
  Wed. 11/28/12 9:11pm Neolithic Man:

@phat: Ditto.
  Wed. 11/28/12 9:12pm sweet cheri:

evan i hope you had fun on your time off last week,
  Wed. 11/28/12 9:13pm phat:

Yikes. This is a recording I would never have expected to exist.
  Wed. 11/28/12 9:13pm Neolithic Man:

Is cheri a Julian Cope fan, or an obscure prog fan?
  Wed. 11/28/12 9:15pm john:

I actually have this single, which is in no way an endorsement of Morrissey's single-handed resuscitation of Sandie Shaw's career (though her cover of Hand In Glove was rad). Becky said she just thought Sandie was old at the time. At 38, mind.
  Wed. 11/28/12 9:15pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Cheri is an American treasure. Welcome back.
  Wed. 11/28/12 9:15pm Andrew Waterloo:

I really enjoyed that Sandie Shaw, the zon as well
  Wed. 11/28/12 9:16pm Neolithic Man:

She's sui generis!
  Wed. 11/28/12 9:16pm Andrew Waterloo:

hmm.. I think I bought a Zon album once. I know I've at least touched one.
  Wed. 11/28/12 9:18pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Its badge of pride-worthy that Lloyd Cole does the suburban dad thing in New England.
  Wed. 11/28/12 9:21pm G:

wiki: In 2006 Camera Obscura made an answer song called "Lloyd, I'm Ready to be Heartbroken".
Avatar Wed. 11/28/12 9:22pm efd:

Hey everyone! Thanks for tuning in tonight, great to see all of you here. I'll hopefully get myself together to comment more later!
Avatar Wed. 11/28/12 9:23pm efd:

(I've played that Camera Obscura song on my show, by the way)
  Wed. 11/28/12 9:25pm Barkevious Shabazz:

This Good Bread Alley is the catchiest, kookiest thing ever.

  Wed. 11/28/12 9:33pm sweet cheri:

happy holidays danne!
  Wed. 11/28/12 9:34pm Andrew Waterloo:

we're supposed to say zed
  Wed. 11/28/12 9:34pm PB:

Yes EFD, they definitely say zed in Canada (they also say Zon was a typically horrible Canadian band).
  Wed. 11/28/12 9:35pm PB:

Best album of 2012 was Oshin by DIIV.
  Wed. 11/28/12 9:38pm PB:

Honorable mention to Tender New Signs by Tamaryn, Slaughterhouse by the Ty Segall Band and Radar Eyes self-titled album.
  Wed. 11/28/12 9:43pm sweet cheri:

evan just as i told monica that she's the queen of sunday nights.. i want to let you know you're the king of funk every wednesday night!
Avatar Wed. 11/28/12 9:43pm efd:

speaking of Tamaryn...
Avatar Wed. 11/28/12 9:43pm efd:

thanks cheri, I appreciate it.
  Wed. 11/28/12 9:44pm Danne D:

Hiya cheri - hope you're having a happy holiday season.

Thanks for your usual greatness EFD. Btw, what do you think of the new Red Sox manager?
  Wed. 11/28/12 9:45pm PB:

efd, nice. My favorite track from the new Tamaryn album. Very cool.
  Wed. 11/28/12 9:45pm Mr. ACM:

This Tamaryn album was pretty good but it didn't really stand out to me. However, every time I hear any of you FMU DJs spin a track I immediately check the playlist to see what it is because I like the song. I don't know, maybe it works better for me in 4 minute doses than a full 40 minute album
Avatar Wed. 11/28/12 9:47pm efd:

Tamaryn did a live set on Dark Night Of The Soul a couple of weeks ago - you can find it in the archives.
  Wed. 11/28/12 9:47pm phat:

This is fantastic.
  Wed. 11/28/12 9:49pm Danne D:

Gotta Moody Blues thing going on with this one :)
  Wed. 11/28/12 9:50pm Andrew Waterloo:

@ACM, could be that the incidental nature of hearing it on the radio too
  Wed. 11/28/12 9:51pm G:

@danne: in your wildest dreams.
  Wed. 11/28/12 9:52pm sweet cheri:

btw evan,are you going to have a christmas special later this season? cause i think that'll be fun.
  Wed. 11/28/12 9:56pm Sam S.:

Is it just me, or is John Cale starting to sound like Beck??
  Wed. 11/28/12 9:57pm phat:

Holy cow, that's brand new?
  Wed. 11/28/12 9:57pm steve:

Sam S i was thinking the same thing!
  Wed. 11/28/12 9:58pm Sam S.:

Good - I don't feel so alone now!
  Wed. 11/28/12 10:00pm steve:

i think we're approaching the singularity, and it sounds like 2000s beck
  Wed. 11/28/12 10:01pm Sam S.:

Maybe he's "ghost-producing"..!
  Wed. 11/28/12 10:15pm Mike East:

great music to fry eggplant to. Hey Funkfans!
  Wed. 11/28/12 10:16pm G:

that was one new-ass set right there, people
  Wed. 11/28/12 10:17pm SteveL:

Hmmmm, Hozac strikes again. Not a lot of duds coming out of there, (at least that get airtime.)
  Wed. 11/28/12 10:18pm Droll:

G, Yes, but they were all of legal age.
  Wed. 11/28/12 10:18pm Colfax Cloud:

Killer songs (out of nowhere) indeed! ~ http://www.facebook.com/ColfaxCloud
  Wed. 11/28/12 10:19pm G:

@Droll: but of course :)
  Wed. 11/28/12 10:22pm Holly in NC:

Hello Evan & everyone! Can't talk tonight, or listen much longer due to a week of heinous early rising (I should've been in bed 2 hours ago) but wanted to spread a wee bit of good cheer. :-) Yay for archives.
  Wed. 11/28/12 10:22pm Droll:

G, EFD pimps tunes, but it's important to be clear his FCC logs are always in order.
  Wed. 11/28/12 10:22pm G:

Jeez, A GIRL :P
  Wed. 11/28/12 10:23pm Mike East:

I swear to god, during that last set, I consciously thought to myself.."I hope he plays that Jobriath medley." Seems like you got my psychic message, efd.
  Wed. 11/28/12 10:24pm sweet cheri:

evan,sorry if i'm babbling on & on but as always i'm grooving on your show!
Avatar Wed. 11/28/12 10:24pm efd:

ha, well done Mike East! Message received, apparently!

Hi Holly, thanks for the drive-by. Hope you get to sleep late soon.
  Wed. 11/28/12 10:25pm sweet cheri:

hey there holly.
  Wed. 11/28/12 10:25pm Danne D:

The Jobriath Medley makes me feel very uncreative
  Wed. 11/28/12 10:26pm Danne D:

Hi/Bye Holly :)
  Wed. 11/28/12 10:29pm Droll:

Holly, LTNS! Hello Goodbye! Early rising is good for productivity and meditative tasks.
  Wed. 11/28/12 10:32pm PB:

Never heard of Tim Maia but that was a great track.
  Wed. 11/28/12 10:33pm Holly in NC:

@Droll unless it's not ;-). I am a babbling incoherent unproductive very non-meditative wreck before 10 am, and always have been. 2 am, that's another story!
Avatar Wed. 11/28/12 10:33pm efd:

PB, yes, that Tim Maia CD is a revelation!
  Wed. 11/28/12 10:38pm Mr. ACM:

That Dan Melchior album was probably my favorite of this past year. Props, EFD.
  Wed. 11/28/12 10:39pm Holly in NC:

Dan Melcior is a lovely lp , written in large part for a wonderful woman. Go Letha!
  Wed. 11/28/12 10:39pm Destroit:

hello EFD and everyone, enjoying the show, particularly the last half hour.
  Wed. 11/28/12 10:41pm Mr. ACM:

@efd Potty mouth!
  Wed. 11/28/12 10:41pm Joe E:

My girlfriend just popped in to say.... "Is this Dan?" she asks. "Melcior?"I ask. "Yes", I confirm. "So good," she says. "Indeed," I say. "Very much so."
Avatar Wed. 11/28/12 10:52pm efd:

Hey Joe E! Thanks for tuning in! Nice to see you too, Destroit!

Mr. ACM, sorry to disappoint you.
  Wed. 11/28/12 10:52pm Danne D:

How about that B1G vs your ACC Holly? :) :P
  Wed. 11/28/12 10:53pm Danne D:

  Wed. 11/28/12 10:54pm Joe E:

Wreckless Eric!!! This is why I listen to WFMU (Well... one of the reasons...)
  Wed. 11/28/12 10:55pm sweet cheri:

evan i have to head out now, so this is my last comment for tonight..also i guess you're not having a xmas show in the near future,, huh? g'night all!
  Wed. 11/28/12 10:55pm Danne D:

"Radio Heart" makes a great CD title :)
Avatar Wed. 11/28/12 10:56pm efd:

cheri, if you were listening to the show instead of just commenting randomly you would have heard me mention the xmas show coming up in a few weeks.
Avatar Wed. 11/28/12 10:58pm efd:

Danne, I agree! :) Can't believe that isn't the title track of that album.
  Wed. 11/28/12 11:01pm Semanticist:

c.'s really more rigid than random
  Wed. 11/28/12 11:01pm steve:

hey i just got back and read about the xmas show! yay. is it gonna be all Christmas / holiday songs? im guessing for better or worse it will not be disco themed :D
  Wed. 11/28/12 11:02pm Danne D:

  Wed. 11/28/12 11:02pm Julie:

There is no such thing as an unhappy "how do you do."
  Wed. 11/28/12 11:43pm SteveL:

Anything is good with rice. Pretty much, at least.
  Wed. 11/28/12 11:43pm Julie:

sing it mama cass
  Wed. 11/28/12 11:43pm G:

Michael counters that there is such a thing as a smarmy how do you do :)
  Wed. 11/28/12 11:44pm Uncle Michael:

@efd...dissing? He was the best at smarm ever. I have a whole collection of The In Sound in my library. Love it...

OK Uncle Michael, I'm standing down. :)
  Wed. 11/28/12 11:46pm sweet cheri:

I *don't* have this Cass episode. :(
  Wed. 11/28/12 11:46pm Barkevious Shabazz:

I'll take the Mugwumps.
  Wed. 11/28/12 11:46pm steve:

presented by the army... wow
  Wed. 11/28/12 11:47pm G:

they'll pay you *while* you study!!!!!!!!!!!!
  Wed. 11/28/12 11:49pm SteveL:

An amazingly conversational interviewer. Guessing Phil Hartman also had a set of The In Sound.
  Wed. 11/28/12 11:50pm steve:

i gotta get that Infinity People record
  Wed. 11/28/12 11:52pm Droll:

Steve, I believe that's "Today's Action Army", not to be confused with the socialist army paying people to go to college.
  Wed. 11/28/12 11:53pm Uncle Michael:

If you listen to enough of them it begins to dawn that a staffer did the interviews and Harry re-dubbed the questions and that he had no contact with the artists. Anyway, that's my theory.
  Wed. 11/28/12 11:53pm Droll:

"Socialist-Intellectual Army", that is.
Avatar Wed. 11/28/12 11:54pm efd:

@Uncle Michael I support that theory, although that Mama Cass one actually sounded like they might have been in the same room.
  Wed. 11/28/12 11:57pm G:

re subsonics: cake with an upper crust?
  Wed. 11/28/12 11:57pm Uncle Michael:

I won't disagree since it's the first time I heard that one. Though it still sounds like a "phoner" to me...so I don't know about the same room.
  Wed. 11/28/12 11:57pm Andrew Waterloo:

wasn't there once-sided interview records released by the labels at one point?
  Wed. 11/28/12 11:57pm Uncle Michael:

Is this Highway Star by Deep Purple?
  Wed. 11/28/12 11:57pm Danne D:

LOL G - well "6" was the powerball
  Wed. 11/28/12 11:58pm SteveL:

Do other interviewees respond to Harry by name? (I do not challenge the pre-interview theory directly)
  Wed. 11/28/12 11:58pm Uncle Michael:

Andrew, yes...there was just one put up on Beware of the Blog recently.
  Wed. 11/28/12 11:59pm Danne D:
