@Rev TD, "Box scarred" is a great way of describing every WFMU DJ for the next four weeks.

"bock scarred" is a beer reference

Box Car: It's the wee slender studio that looks into the live-music room, yes? I was privileged enough to do a set in there for Scott W a year-plus ago. I can see how Marathon Time in there would drive DJs insane.

Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 9:23pm Holly in NC:

@UncleMiichael - while *I* think Hole has some great songs, I also think the likelihood of efd playing Hole is about same as him playing Grouper, so we're both safe ;-)
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 9:23pm steve:

Uncle Michael - ive been looking for an alternate (slightly slower and sloppier) version of Roadrunner that was in a 1990s skateboard video forever, and have never been able to find it.
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 9:23pm efd:

ha, good one G! Maybe that was subconscious on my part.

Eddy, unfortunately being in the upstairs studio limits my ability to be spontaneous and I don't have any Modern Lovers up here with me. Maybe next week!
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 9:23pm Uncle Michael:

Yesterday I was watching this old brit tv episode that was a look in on Rockpile at Eden studio during the recording of Repeat When Necessary and Labour of Lust...

And at one point, Edmunds is laying down a vocal for *his* version of Nick's "Endless Gray Ribbon," which Nick would eventually record himself for Labour...

Roadrunner Pedantry Watch: The single and album versions of Roadrunner were recorded a couple years apart. And there were two more recorded in between with Kim Fowley (excuse my french) that came out several years later. All sound a bit (or a lot) different, different lengths, instruments, etc. And those were just the four versions that were done before the first album. For that alone, it should be the state song.
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 9:34pm G:

@Matt: Even back in Latin (where Spanish etc. come from) "day" and "night" were a different gender (respectively, male and female) than you'd think by looking at their endings. C'est la vie!
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 9:34pm Uncle Michael:

Thank you John!

Roadrunner is a pretty good litmus test. When it comes on and you bounce around the room...some people get it...and some people don't.

  Wed. 2/20/13 9:44pm john:

Dollar were quite popular in the UK in the earliest part of the '80s. I didn't remember they were as good as that single. As for Roadrunner, nobody beats the original(s), but if I needed a cover, it'd be the Jazz Butcher by a mile.

...Is it only the Northeast, though - ?
...In SoCal I remember hearing about Jonathan Richman, but

Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 9:46pm Holly in NC:

People who don't jump around to Roadrunner need some homemade soup, 8 hours uninterrupted sleep, a good back rub, a big bear hug, AND if all else fails a mighty kick in the pants.

I've seen Jonathan in Hoboken, New Brunswick, Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Seattle. Mileage has varied to be honest - some gigs he's been more into than others, though I think that's largely a function of the crowd's energy.

I'm still trying to recover from last week. Arrived @ EWR from BKK (via NAR) at 6pm EST.

About 10 hours (or 22 with time offset) found myself in Hoboken singing Joy Division and Psych Furs at Meghan's b'day party and hoisting pints with Joe McG and Daniel B.

It's taken me an additional 4 days to recover from a combo of the flight and the immediate partying!

"Of the various rock and metal bands out there today that strive to take us on a DeLorean ride back to the time of handle-bar mustaches and full-on bush, Hot Lunch and their self-titled debut album are certainly some of the most authentic that I’ve come across. The record’s 10 tracks are alive with the vibes and tones of rock-n-roll’s pinnacle. From high-energy, driving rockabilly to progy, stoner grooves, these guys put out an album that will make a great birthday gift for you or your dad.

Feel that organ!
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 10:18pm efd:

Hot Lunch are a trio +a singer. So, not really a trio. :)

@John: Scary! Actually, a lot of the "New Melbourne Jangle" bands (not my tag, I promise) are influenced by the GoBs - they're the gift that keeps on giving.
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 10:19pm Stevel:

Man. Pinnacle. How did I never listen to them in someone's basement? Its in punk crossover territory.

Hawkwind - yeah - Lemmy, Motorhead

I'm still not buying Hammered Satin's T-Rex regurge. Liked The Darkness for recycled glam better.

Quasar Queen is the new anthem!

Yeah, Eddy, that name is a little unwieldy, but if you're picking influences you could certainly do a whole lot worse. Personally, not sure you could do a whole lot better!

How, specifically, does a quasar queen come at a person?

Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 11:13pm G:

@MK: try this:


that's the current schedule

just change the 30 first to 29 (hit enter), then 28 (hit enter), then 27 (hot enter), etc., and you can scroll back through schedules for prior years...
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 11:14pm Matt from Springfield:

@Kitty: The easiest way, going back to 2001, is the Internet Archive caches of the schedule page:

The homepage itself goes back to 1996, you can click on links within that to find out what the schedule used to be.
  Wed. 2/20/13 11:14pm Marmalade Kitty:

thanks G
Avatar Wed. 2/20/13 11:14pm G:

also, MK, comment timestamps on shows will tell you what time it was live, but that only helps as far back as comments go...
