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.

Options May 8, 2013: WAX IDOLS and TV GHOST live sets!

Listen to this show: | Add or read comments

Oakland's Wax Idols have an intense post-punk sound that might remind you of Joy Division or Siouxsie & the Banshees -- no surprise, since both bands are longtime favorites of the band's primary singer and songwriter, Hether Fortune. Their outstanding debut single and LP both landed on EFD's Best Of 2011 list and they've just released their second full-length, Discipline & Desire (Slumberland) which somehow improves on their debut. Fortune says that her strongest songwriting influences in recent years are Daniel Ash and Wire, but Wax Idols have their own sound that defies genres, among other things.

You'll also hear a live set from Wax Idols' tourmates, TV Ghost. These Indiana art-punkers have been putting out one killer record after another, with each one seemingly scarier (in a good way) than the one before it. TV Ghost sit somewhere on the spectrum between Goblin and Lightning Bolt, and the Dario Argentos of the future would do well to hire TV Ghost for their next soundtrack. They have a new full-length coming out soon on In The Red that will include the songs they played on the show.

that's what I was saying, Steve -- I pulled that one on livejournal a couple times around 2004, till I noticed how weird it looked after you put then entry up. After that I always doublechecked before calling it done :)

I noticed the boldface makeover mistake too, I wonder if any other webpage, even with an active audience, would've gotten a dozen emails or private messages, funny that on FMU we can just have EFD shoot out an email, whilst in the middle of doing a radio show... sometimes the terrestrial/internet mashup of the FMU community kinda blows my mind

@chinchilla I find that the comments board collapses all distance. FMU shows without a comments board are 'radio' and remote. This is an interactive medium, it's radio+

@fleep, for sure. I have but one of many possible experiences/view points of the fmu experience as a not too far removed (MPLS, grew up in Maryland) but certainly internet-based listener.. I guess I really tend to try to hold on to the analog concept even so. It certainly is like radio+
Avatar    Wed. 5/8/13 9:57pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...w/ Social Media & mobiles of all sorts - 'Double Screening' w/ broadcasts (having one Media open whilst Interacting on another screen) is actually pretty common now

Holly, I don't expect to hear Tony Thompson (*MY* favorite drummer) or full-band Zeppelin, either. But it's cool to assume we already know those songs, they don't get played on FMU for that reason in the first place. I'm really excited about the drum show!

Holly, Joke all you like, but Neil may have inspired more than one of the featured drummers to take up drums. FWIW, Rush hating is passé, they already made into the RRHoF and sold a gazillion records.

Hey daniel, did you write the text u posted tonight?
Avatar Wed. 5/8/13 11:21pm G:

OMG, Droll is gonna drag me back to alt.music.yes circa 95.

My answer in those debates was: they're two different stylists that are great at what they do. Bruford does so many things that White doesn't, but White fits the harder or more straightforward rock numbers in the Yes repertoire.

And now I step back to await the customary outraged contradiction that comes no matter which of them someone backs or what reasons are given :)

RRN, You just compared Neil Peart to Mariah Carey!

I actually miss Usenet.
Every once in a while I sign up for a free week of access and poke around a bit.

The thought of a Neil/Mariah collab is going to give me nightmares! Dang!

RRN63, You need to meet Steve, his disinterest in jazz is matched only by his disinterest in musicianship.

Thankfully, I had to look up the Rocinante reference, as the only one I knew (as, I presume, of course did Neil Peart) was Don Quixote's clumsy old horse. Which led me dangerously close to the brink of my second rear-half-of-the-horse joke of the day.

i do like that Pollock quote. yes i do.
Avatar    Wed. 5/8/13 11:37pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- yeah - I think steve & I were chatting about that during - Lamin's Program? I advised to think of Jazz as Blues for people who play too well...Ya gotta Swing & Improvise in Jazz too, though, as well as have mad Technique. In other words: Something to say. In other words: Artistic Sensibilities.

Maneuvering well, still.

For what it's worth, I'm pretty sure Dazzle Ships was billed just to OMD in '83. New record is pretty uniformly wonderful; delighted to hear you playing it!

Evan all synthy this show. Watch out for that prog gravity, getting sucked into that black hole is tough :p

@john That's funny, I didn't realize that! Or remember it. One or the other.
Avatar Wed. 5/8/13 11:46pm Droll:

RRN, "Play too well"? Pay too well for what? Is that why Mariah's career dried up? Sang too well?
Avatar    Wed. 5/8/13 11:47pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...weeks ago I remarked here it sounded like someone had put L in the Mods' punchbowl for a bit
...hardly seems worth noting now! (Not that I've known this Program a really long time.)

Need to check out that new Human Eye lp
Avatar Wed. 5/8/13 11:49pm Droll:

I cannot overstate how perplexing it is when amateurism is conflated with sincerity. You do realize even those punk guys in the 70's got good because they played every night for years. PIL is what happened when punk learned to play.
Avatar    Wed. 5/8/13 11:49pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

@Droll: Put it this way: Billie Holiday described herself as having only seven notes in her range - but she's my favorite Singer. Mariah has possibly a record-breaking range of notes, but if she had never existed I wouldn't have noticed.

FOODFIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!
Avatar    Wed. 5/8/13 11:53pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- well yeah - for that matter, the business about the Sex Pistols 'not being able to play' is - erm - bollocks. They were a mighty & muscular RockBand. W/ a brilliant lyricist&frontman what's more.
- That's one thing I like about that Pollock quote: It doesn't negate Technique, but it does assert it's only a Means to an End.

Holly, I'm with you on Human Eye.

Emersonesque a little :)
Avatar Wed. 5/8/13 11:58pm Droll:

Easy to say for a guy who splatters paint. Next you'll want me to believe pressing the spacebar on a laptop is a form of self-expression.

Evan, thank you for a GREAT show.

Thanks for a great show EFD :)
Time to pack up. Have a good night all :)

You people do realize that Pollock quote is total bullsh*t, particularly when taken out of context, don't you? Hopeless angry alcoholics say the darnedest things.

Love the Tv Ghost & YES the Wax Dolls & everything before and after great again EFD!!!

I always consider that type of thing material for an update of _Anti-Intellectualism in American Life_ -- see, I can foodfight in my own way :)

great live sets, great new bin raid :)

...it doesn't make any difference if the Technique is splattering paint, pressing a spacebar, or plunking a cheap productionline guitar.
- What makes it Art is if something relevant is being said.
