Gotta label that somg for the curseword EFD
Avatar Wed. 5/11/16 9:52pm herb.nyc:

hey all. greeeeeat evening for me so far ("great" said like Tony the Tiger), bec the music EFD is playing is just great (which reminds me, where is my DUST cd?). if if if possible, some new CHILLS? and earlier, i saw DAVE HILL do his in-store. and of course it was funny & shredding & erotic; ie, great. he nicely signed the book i had, which was a library copy. i mean, after all, we the taxpayers own it! (what's with Scherzer and $20,000? sorry, bad joke.)
Avatar Wed. 5/11/16 9:54pm JakeGould:

@herb.nyc: Where did you see him? McNally-Jackson? Or BookCourt? Was at BookCourt! And sweet move on the library copy getting signed!
Avatar Wed. 5/11/16 9:55pm herb.nyc:

wow, this song is very Dad Forster-y sounding. and back to Dave Hill reading: he mentioned "import / export" and it instantly made me think of Go-B song with lyric "her father works in export but that's of no import at all, i don't mind"
Avatar Wed. 5/11/16 9:56pm herb.nyc:

@JakeG - i was at McNally J. surprisingly, it wasn't overflowing with people. but we made enough noise.
Avatar Wed. 5/11/16 9:58pm JakeGould:

@herb.nyc: Yeah, there were so many groupies at BookCourt it was insane. Had to call in extra Hell’s Angels.
Avatar Wed. 5/11/16 9:59pm JakeGould:

This M83 sounds like “Community Bulletin Board” background music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/11/16 10:03pm Alejandroool:

I always wonder how they got that part to feel so darn punchy "Feeeeeeeels so good"
Avatar Wed. 5/11/16 10:03pm herb.nyc:

as EFD has his social media bullhorn, i'ma gonna shill for THE BIG TAKEOVER magazine. (may i? ok, i don't hear any objections.) i brought over the mags to Other Music for sale, so the store's closing hurts a little extra for us. and a new issue will come out in a day or 2, literally. SAVAGES are on the cover. there's a good chance editor / publisher JACK RABID will be at the CHILLS shows in bklyn and Monty Hall. and he'll have copies for sale. so won't you? he's at <bigtakeover.com>. excuse the product placement. thank you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/11/16 10:09pm efd:

thanks for the info, Herb.

@Alejandroool, some ace production on those Zombies records for sure.

That tune should have gone out to the striking Verizon workers.

since JakeG mentioned Hell's Angels, it made me think of Altamont, and now i'd like to hear "baseball altamont". may we, EFD? if not, i'll live (last 2 words said like a jewish grandmother).

The Cars first LP was/is amazing.

It's very hard to not be hearing "Bye Bye Love" right now.

@efd agreed one of the great rolls into the next song
Avatar Wed. 5/11/16 10:31pm coelacanth:

agree with all the cars' first album adoration. (and only the first album!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/11/16 10:34pm Bootsie:

The first four for me.
Avatar Wed. 5/11/16 10:34pm JakeGould:

Well, “Candy-O” is pretty great as well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/11/16 10:36pm Scraps deSelby:

I love the first/second transition, and "Bye Bye Love" is my favorite Cars song; so when "You're All I've Got Tonight" is played and not follow with "Bye Bye Love", I'm vaguely disappointed. (That's my disappointment, not anyone else's, of course.)
Avatar Wed. 5/11/16 10:37pm coelacanth:

okay, i concede. i've looked at the track listing and, if i skip all the Orr songs, candy-o is definitely good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/11/16 10:37pm Scraps deSelby:

Ha! I just read efd's comment
Avatar Wed. 5/11/16 10:38pm coelacanth:

And Danne D comment!
Avatar Wed. 5/11/16 10:41pm coelacanth:

...ha! i take that back too! i'll just say if i skip "let's go" and 2 others i like the album.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/11/16 10:42pm Scraps deSelby:

The first album was reissued with a second cd with most of the demos. That was several years ago (I have it).
Avatar Wed. 5/11/16 10:43pm JakeGould:

This box set seems to be Elektra just vomiting “The Cars” catalog in yet another box set. www.facebook.com...
Avatar Wed. 5/11/16 10:44pm coelacanth:

no it's just one with a nosebleed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/11/16 10:44pm Scraps deSelby:

But "Let's Go" is great! (Well, to me....)
Avatar Wed. 5/11/16 10:47pm coelacanth:

'sorry! not my taste, that's all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/11/16 10:48pm efd:

oh good to know, coel! I'm glad my nosebleed fears were unfounded.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/11/16 10:48pm Scraps deSelby:

Specifically, I love Bye Bye Love for the chorus with three drum fills that is so, so awesome.
Avatar Wed. 5/11/16 10:49pm coelacanth:

"dangerous type" and "double life" are my 2 favorites from "candy-o", i think....and "it's all i can do" is a Benjamin Orr song, so nothing against him.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/11/16 10:50pm Scraps deSelby:

"Dangerous Type" is my second favorite Cars song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/11/16 10:53pm Scraps deSelby:

Even Panorama has "Touch and Go"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/11/16 10:57pm Ken From Hyde Park:

The model on the cover of Candy-O is Candy Moore.
Avatar Wed. 5/11/16 10:58pm geezerette:

Was it done by Vargas?
Avatar Wed. 5/11/16 10:58pm coelacanth:

if i have that album, Scraps, i promptly forgot about it; but more likely i've never heard it. i do have the 4th album and i never liked it...though nostalgia might find me enjoying the title track at some point. -very catchy!
Avatar Wed. 5/11/16 11:00pm JakeGould:

@Ken: Oh, barf!
Avatar Wed. 5/11/16 11:01pm coelacanth:

yes, vargas.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/11/16 11:01pm Ken From Hyde Park:

@geezerette - Yes, Alberto Vargas, who painted pin-ups in the 40s. He came out of retirement for the Cars' cover. Furthermore, Candy Moore is from Maplewood, NJ. All this info courtesy of Wikipedia.
Avatar Wed. 5/11/16 11:04pm geezerette:

Thanks guys,it's a great cover.
Best things about vinyl are covers and liner notes!
Avatar Wed. 5/11/16 11:05pm coelacanth:

oh. i got my info by looking at the album cover....for a long,long time!
Avatar Wed. 5/11/16 11:09pm JakeGould:

I hear the lady who was on the cover of the first Cars LP was named Drivah D. Cars.
Avatar Wed. 5/11/16 11:10pm JakeGould:

Avatar Wed. 5/11/16 11:12pm geezerette:

Hey there was a singer in L.A. who called herself Dinah Cancer. Also a DJ named Tequila Mockingbird.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/11/16 11:13pm Scraps deSelby:

(Actually, coelacanth, when I say "even Panorama has Touch and Go", I wouldn't say you should buy it. Probably it's only has Touch and Go.)

(My language is bad tonight....)

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/11/16 11:18pm Scraps deSelby:

Hookworms?? That's.... kinda awful band name.
Avatar Wed. 5/11/16 11:23pm coelacanth:

i might be more open to it now actually, Scraps. at the time the 1st album was fresh and new. when the 2nd one came i thought "oh more of this..." so i stopped paying attention. (i don't know how i ended up with the 4th album.)
...there was too much Amazing music in 1979 to focus on anything recycled for very long.

Thank you Evan.

Also I'll belatedly add that I always liked "Gimme Some Slack" from Panorama.

Evan, forget your records whenever you want. Still good.

No records, no problem. I would've been all like "Oh, barf!" if it had happened to me.

uh, okay, maybe not the last 2, which i don't understand!

yeah I'm not in on those barf jokes either!

@efd: It’s something that Ken said on Faye’s list that I latched onto and will use as an exclamation until I get sick of it. I believe Ken concurs.

that's my only contribution
Avatar Wed. 5/11/16 11:40pm coelacanth:

...Evan, i'll consider "gimme some slack" and scraps' opinion and give a listen. it's even possible there are gems on "shake it up" that i couldn't appreciate at the time.
-i was into punkrock deeply then, but my roots are in pop and rock and i'm still in touch with that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/11/16 11:42pm Scraps deSelby:

that's like "PJ Harvey" was the band, not the person. except it was the person. i never understood that.

@Bootsie I saw them at the Cat Club in NYC soon after that album came out... early 89 I think.
@bruschotti I don't know what show you're referring to.
Avatar Wed. 5/11/16 11:56pm JakeGould:

@DanneD: For one show every year a WFMU volunteer should just steal a DJs playlist media so they can feel the rush of adrenaline and remember where they came from, right?

TIL the WFMU record library and new bin has some mighty fine records. Thanks, efd, and have a great week.

@EFD I think it was right after the Date With A Vampire EP came out when I saw them.

Avatar Wed. 5/11/16 11:58pm coelacanth:

i had a pink floyd bootleg from when "animals" was evolving that sounded like this. i guess it sounded good enough to steal. (someone stole it from the band; then someone stole it from me.)
