I am but a primitive man and an alien to these strange shores. Where is this land of the seaside of which you speak and are these creatures the "union jacks" a peaceful race such as the hoodoo stone age romeos of which I have heard tell?

Wasn't "Everything Works If You Let It" also on that Found All The Parts 10"?
Avatar Tue. 8/13/13 12:37pm efd:

ha, I was busy working at the WABC screening of Roadie in the summer of 1980 so I missed most of the movie!

(answer: No, "Everything Works..." was NOT on that Nu-Disk release.)

Hey Mike,
Wow, that photo brings me back. I won many a crappy bootleg 8-Track on the seaside boardwalk. Some of them even played as intended. Keep rockin. Don't forget to vote, NJ'ers.

Great plan... It's like a beautiful fall day here in Brew City. Cool but wonderful.. 58 degrees in August!
Avatar Tue. 8/13/13 1:32pm Nate K:

Well, well. What a nice surprise.
Avatar Tue. 8/13/13 1:37pm efd:

I was trying to figure out why "Another Night Alone" sounded so familiar -- and then I used the WFMU playlist search (thanks, Kenzo!) and discovered that it was covered by Games when they played my show earlier in the year. A session expertly engineered by the DJ on the air now, I might add.
Avatar Tue. 8/13/13 1:41pm Nate K:

Hey @efd what's the link to that search? Maybe PM me?
Avatar Tue. 8/13/13 1:46pm efd:

Avatar Tue. 8/13/13 1:48pm tim from champaign:

efd - I caught Games in Chicago a short time after they played their show. It was great.
Avatar Tue. 8/13/13 1:50pm Nate K:

@efd Thanks!
Avatar Tue. 8/13/13 1:54pm Peteski:

is this the too much information show?
Avatar Tue. 8/13/13 1:56pm Nate K:

@Peteski Mike is an educator. Embrace the knowledge.

I need to find me some Allah Las. Seriously....perhaps will record shop this weekend.

My train of thought, "This sounds like 'Draggin' the Line.' This can't be 'Draggin' the Line.' This is 'Draggin the Line.' Sweet!"
Avatar Tue. 8/13/13 2:54pm Parq:

This Trashman song has been running through my mind for days. Should have known I wouldn't have to wait long before hearing it on FMU.
Avatar Tue. 8/13/13 2:54pm Parq:

And yeah, 'Draggin' the Line' is a little bit of perfect.
