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.

Avatar Wed. 6/19/13 9:11pm Stevel:

Oh Holly, you look wonderful in any color scheme.

@Holly No dis taken!
Avatar Wed. 6/19/13 9:31pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

I'm still half convinced the lyric Yo La Tengo repeat there is, "Is this thing on, is this thing on?"
Avatar Wed. 6/19/13 9:33pm jmd:

And this is the first song ever played in Maxwell's. When Jackie Treehorn owned the place.
Avatar Wed. 6/19/13 9:34pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

levan's theme sounds a little like TheSimpsons' theme on ludes (by no means a diss)...

Holy crap - James Gandolfini death not a hoax, unless the NYT's been faked out :-(

Hey Evan!

Either way, good to hear 5MEB getting the propers they deserve.

Avatar Wed. 6/19/13 9:47pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

For better or for worse, this song marks the turning point of when people stopped rolling their eyes when I talked about New Jersey.
Avatar Wed. 6/19/13 9:51pm Fernando M Pacheco:

Don't Stop Believin. That's the song that makes me remember The Sopranos and James Gandolfini.
Avatar Wed. 6/19/13 9:54pm Holly in NC:

In a creepy coincedence, I was watching the following earlier today, no lie:
James Gandolofini reading Maurice Sendak's the Night Kitchen
Avatar Wed. 6/19/13 9:56pm Stevel:

The Thermals are nice. Little 13th Floor/Roky vibe.
Avatar Wed. 6/19/13 9:59pm Stevel:

Any Hussey in the mix? We get them this Sunday? Definitely going out.
Avatar Wed. 6/19/13 10:01pm efd:

as a matter of fact, yes! Coming up!
Avatar Wed. 6/19/13 10:01pm efd:

Holly that IS a creepy coincidence!
Avatar Wed. 6/19/13 10:02pm Holly in NC:

@efd - Isn't it? I was catching up on some Sendak links, and ended up with James. Now disconcerted.
Avatar Wed. 6/19/13 10:07pm Stevel:

Hussey on Terri T? Awesome. Sweet Talk is coming up on the CBC too. Lead guitar is a Fort Wayner, now in Austin.
Avatar Wed. 6/19/13 10:08pm Barkevious Shabazz:

Always thought the kid in Where the Wild things Are was kinda thuggish.
  Wed. 6/19/13 10:09pm wfoote:

Literally listened to this OBN III's record before tuning in 10 mins ago. Just got it today. It's great.
Avatar Wed. 6/19/13 10:11pm Holly in NC:

I remember this show! How cool!
Avatar Wed. 6/19/13 10:12pm Stevel:

OBN IIIs are on my list.
Avatar Wed. 6/19/13 10:19pm Holly in NC:

Yay :-)
Avatar Wed. 6/19/13 10:20pm Barkevious Shabazz:

As soon as this Game Theory track started I thought, side 2, track 1. What a drag, drag, drag.

superb segue efd
Avatar Wed. 6/19/13 10:31pm Droll:

This Loud Family track reminds me of Let's Active. Where's Mitch these days?
Avatar Wed. 6/19/13 10:41pm ottovonbqe:

I'm loud and obnoxious and extroverted. HUGE fan.
Avatar Wed. 6/19/13 10:42pm Holly in NC:

@Droll - most recent news from our local rag:

"If there’s such a thing as a lucky break, this might count: In February, Fidelitorium Recordings, Mitch Easter’s Kernersville studio, offered a free weekend of recording with Easter at the helm to “somebody awesome.” That somebody had to respond to a Facebook post requesting a description of “who you are and what you want to do and an mp3 of your current idea or something you've done in the past.”

The winner is Carrboro’s Henbrain, a self-proclaimed “post-metal, psychedelic rock band with two basses and female vocals.”
...For the less-lucky, have hope; Fidelitorium has promised a second contest this Fall."
Avatar Wed. 6/19/13 10:45pm Droll:

Holly, Thankyou x 1,000!!! Post-metal, psychedelic rock band with two basses and female vocals PLUS Mitch -- I would have missed that without you!
Avatar Wed. 6/19/13 10:47pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- I only became aware of Scott Miller's work right here the night everyone heard about his passing
- & instantly converted; amazing talent - the songwriting & production blending Pop & Complexity& Depth as well - & some of it especially beautiful indeed.

What it is!
  Wed. 6/19/13 11:22pm Jonny Gomes:

Awesome tunes, bro.
  Wed. 6/19/13 11:24pm ScottC:

Living in the Bay Area, Game Theory was always on the periphery.I never saw them but they were one of those bands that you tracked. I really took notice of them when a guitarist that I liked back then, Brian Marnell, joined up with them - good band. I like that song "Dripping With Looks".
Avatar Wed. 6/19/13 11:26pm efd:

hey there, Rev TD! Not used to seeing you in the evening hours!

Mildred, glad you like the new colors!

Greetings KP, ScottC, and good call snapping up a ticket to that show kevin!
Avatar Wed. 6/19/13 11:26pm efd:

oh yeah, what up Johnny Gomes?
  Wed. 6/19/13 11:28pm Eddy in Australia:

@Droll: By the way, I recently saw the Big Star documentary and Mitch Easter makes several (amusing) appearances in it.
Avatar Wed. 6/19/13 11:32pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Good to catch the FUNK live for once. I blame a certain freelance client with a rush job...... and a generous supply of motivational beersies. It's gonna be a late night.
