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.

Yo yo. Major key solos in the house.
  Wed. 5/17/17 9:08pm Julie M Brooklyn:

I meant anything off of Marquee Moon, that is.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/17/17 9:09pm Uncle Michael:

I love this band...this album and Verlaine, but I also love Richard Lloyd telling Verlaine stories.
  Wed. 5/17/17 9:17pm Eddy in Australia:

Good Thursday morning, Funksters. Wasn't able to tune in live last week cos I was back at work (subsequently laid off!) but want to say thanks for all the kind comments during the Australian excursion on Evan's May 3 show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/17/17 9:18pm efd:

Well that could only be the one and only Eddy from Australia! Laid off?! That's not good!

Well that was weird! The message above is from me.
  Wed. 5/17/17 9:20pm Eddy in Australia:

Technical issues! Moral of the story: don't take so much time off to go record shopping overseas,
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/17/17 9:21pm efd:

I'll fix it up for you, Eddy.

@UM - I was thinking of playing something from 10cc's Sheet Music LP, went with the Hotlegs b-side instead.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/17/17 9:21pm Uncle Michael:

I love the deep cuts.
  Wed. 5/17/17 9:22pm Eddy in Australia:

That said, I'll now have to track down that Glass Torpedoes 45.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/17/17 9:23pm Uncle Michael:

You could gone with Halfnelson instead of Sparks, too!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/17/17 9:26pm efd:

and Neon Boys instead of Television while I was at it!

@Switchblade Batman: deets are, it's time for the funk.

That it is @Chris_in_space. He's right the thermometer is saying its time for the summer songs.

I've really been enjoying the new Jesus and Mary chain album. It really seems to be hitting the right place when I least expect much to.
Avatar    Wed. 5/17/17 10:47pm Switchblade Batman:

I should check it out @Chad, I loved Psycho Candy and Darklands but their later ones didn't do it for me. How does it compare?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/17/17 10:58pm chad from oregon:

It's like revisiting an old friend... twenty years later... without sounding like a "mature, 20 years later grown-up version" of the glory days.
Avatar    Wed. 5/17/17 10:59pm Switchblade Batman:

Good review @Chad, will have to give it a listen for sure now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/17/17 11:00pm chad from oregon:

Or maybe it is... but that formula finally hit with where I am and worked without seeming too obvious. :D
Avatar Wed. 5/17/17 11:00pm Drunken Creep:

loved that weightless track! what a beautiful song!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/17/17 11:02pm chad from oregon:

Though it does have female vocalists all over it... clearly hoping to possibly revisit what worked with the Sometimes Always hit in the early 90s.
Avatar    Wed. 5/17/17 11:07pm Cooh John:

Relaxing to the funk after working hard all day. Letting the music wash over me.
Avatar    Wed. 5/17/17 11:18pm Switchblade Batman:

I'm loving the moon duo @EFD great choice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/17/17 11:21pm efd:

thank you Switchblade!
Avatar    Wed. 5/17/17 11:22pm Switchblade Batman:

Nope, thank you. Its another band I would have no clue about if it wasn't for you WFMU DJs
  Wed. 5/17/17 11:27pm Stevel:

This set is rolling along in a most satisfactory fashion, thank you very much.
Avatar Wed. 5/17/17 11:34pm Drunken Creep:

Standing with Blade on being thankful for all of the outstanding music WFMU brings
  Wed. 5/17/17 11:36pm Stevel:

Please tell me Street Eaters are coming through the Midwest.
  Wed. 5/17/17 11:38pm #126344:

these Street Eaters are from beyond the noize
  Wed. 5/17/17 11:38pm Stevel:

An almost Lemmy bass style. Makes it lot of noise!
  Wed. 5/17/17 11:40pm Stevel:

Bloomington offers hope for next time! [sob]
Avatar    Wed. 5/17/17 11:44pm Hoboken Jack:

Also loving the Golden Pelicans, and now...

  Wed. 5/17/17 11:51pm Stevel:


You did this for the drum breaks, didn't you? It's okay.

Wow. Never heard it without the vocals.
  Wed. 5/17/17 11:53pm Stevel:

So many nerdy questions.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/17/17 11:53pm efd:

yeah it's quite something with no vocals!
  Wed. 5/17/17 11:55pm Stevel:

How were they so funky?
  Wed. 5/17/17 11:57pm Stevel:

Sofa King cool!
