Got your show loud and live through the stereo with CNN muted on the screen... surreal soundtrack.

Scott Miller had an ongoing lyrical obsession with the bayou city, eg Don't Entertain Me Twice.
  Wed. 8/30/17 9:21pm Stevel:

A friend's adult son lost his Houston apartment to water. He is housed and was able to take what fit in the car. He'd like to drive north, out, home, but that's not yet an option.

He's very aware of how lucky he is.

Extraordinary event. Impossible to comprehend its scale. Do what you can as directly as you can. Money is best.

guitar or band (Guantanamo baywatch) remind me of the growlers a bit ...
  Wed. 8/30/17 10:06pm herb.nyc:

As zerodent is Australian, did you hear of feedtime's drummer problem? He may not be allowed in due to minor drug offense which was NOT an issue some yrs back. Others have stamped passports and their (v soon) USA tour will happen. Thanks Pres* Trump.
  Wed. 8/30/17 10:08pm Dion Chalksee:

herb- I just found out topless (and bottomless) pix of Gerard Depardieu are not uncommon. Thanks Google Image.

Side Note: Has anybody else heard the Gerard Depardieu punk song from the early 80s? It's real and you can hear it on WFMU Archives!

Brother Funk comes through with Gerard Depardieru!! You can't fake the FUNK!
  Wed. 8/30/17 10:20pm Dion Chalksee:

Everybody Google "Gerard Deardiepu naked" right now and start a circle pit in your living room.
  Wed. 8/30/17 10:24pm Dion Chalksee:

I'm getting "Slum of Legs" vibes from this "Table Sugar" track... dig it, baybee!
  Wed. 8/30/17 10:27pm Dion Chalksee:

Brother Funk, you are punk!
  Wed. 8/30/17 10:28pm herb.nyc:

To take this thread lower, I was showering and listening to this show. Towelled off and was naked for a good while after. Google image that! -- I saw feedtime at cake shop in 2012. Bought their boxset ($15, I think, a bargain). I thank you again, Pres* Trump.
  Wed. 8/30/17 10:34pm Dion Chalksee:

herb- I too saw feedtime in 2012 at Empty Bottle. While I have not likely "Funked Out" naked, my dog has, as he does every Wednesday night.
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 10:35pm JakeGould:

@herb.nyc: Was Jack Rabid there?
  Wed. 8/30/17 10:37pm Stevel:

I'm not currently funking-out naked, although I might indulge, when reasonable.
  Wed. 8/30/17 10:39pm Dion Chalksee:

I am ashamed to admit I conflated the upper case styling of fIREHOSE with fEEDTIME. herb is right, it is simply "feedtime"... you guys probably have me pegged as a poser now :(

How did Graham Parker not become rich? Always so well crafted and GOOD.

  Wed. 8/30/17 10:42pm Dion Chalksee:

Look, hopefully you all circle pitted to Deardipeu's hammering punk.

That said there is nothing shameful about "funking out" naked. We've all done it at one time or another.
  Wed. 8/30/17 10:42pm LaVa LaTweme:

Hot hawt h♥️t show 2NITE!‼️‼️
  Wed. 8/30/17 10:45pm Stevel:

All over the place tonight, and hitting bullseyes again and again!
  Wed. 8/30/17 10:46pm Dion Chalksee:

Graham Parker surely has a decent house and has carved out a good life with his tunes. Money corrupts. Graham is a real G. I'll bet his basement and/or garage is super cool.
  Wed. 8/30/17 10:49pm herb.nyc:

@elliotgould, jr not at feedtime. He prob likes them but he loves the saints and go-betweens (and his wife and 2 young children).

Detectives can be love sick too. I think it may be required.

@herb.nyc: I meant when you were showering.
  Wed. 8/30/17 10:54pm Dion Chalksee:

Next time Brother Funk plays a Jona Lewie track all Funkateers will strip naked, shower, and towel off simultaneously.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/30/17 10:55pm efd:

that is a pretty good incentive for me to not play Jona Lewie!
  Wed. 8/30/17 10:55pm Stevel:

It's been interesting watching Frankie Rose evolve into more of an electronic artist, but by god I still dig her.
  Wed. 8/30/17 10:58pm Stevel:

efd. There's nothing to fear in our nakedness. This is one of the reasons why Radio is a solid medium choice.
  Wed. 8/30/17 11:01pm herb.nyc:

Good one, jakegould. Jack Rabid is often in my thoughts when I shower, but in a platonic way. But once I start lathering up...anyway, will Evan have Roky E tix, like yest's 3pm dj? Ugh, what's his name? Dumb me.
Avatar Wed. 8/30/17 11:02pm JakeGould:

For real though, "The Baby, She's On The Street" is an underrated Stiff jam. Graham parker got me thinking Stiff thoughts.

Saying “Think about it…” is a microaggression.

Saying "nakedness" is a micro-agression. hehe

@Jake You're right. Can I say "don't think about it" or is that the same thing?
