@Julie thanks. So am I.

Hey everyone! I was in a band once that covered "Paper Plane".. that was my introduction to that song and I loved it right away.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/29/17 9:11pm efd:

TONS OF NEW RELEASES. That's what's in store for tonight. Making up for the lost time of the past two weeks.

@efd Sounds good

  Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/29/17 9:23pm Julie M:

When I hear AC/DC I always think of you, efd. They have a stronghold on my past.

hello from Minnesota
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/29/17 9:25pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hi, efd and crew. I haven't experienced "Riff Raff" before. It's got some kick to it, dunnit?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/29/17 9:25pm Ricky:

Boy, that was fun!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/29/17 9:26pm Alex of Chicago:

This song makes me think of the way they danced in those 80's movies.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/29/17 9:27pm Alex of Chicago:

Now I'm curious if there was a name for it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/29/17 9:27pm medson:

Losing so many way too young
  Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/29/17 9:28pm Julie M:

59? WAY too young. Wikipedia says "of natural causes"? Eek.

Spot on.

I'm diggin this Sweet Apple
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/29/17 9:47pm efd:

this whole album is good, though this particular song is atypical.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/29/17 9:48pm medson:

Im going to give it a listen

I ask for pizza, you give me push back?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/29/17 9:54pm efd:

"feature" I think
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/29/17 9:55pm Quasi Mojo:

I can relate more to the pizza version
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/29/17 9:56pm efd:

We each bring our own life experiences to the table when it comes to interpreting songs.
  Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/29/17 9:58pm Julie M:

All I know is, nobody better give me no pushback when I ask for pizza. But I like the song. You've played it before? Seems familiar.
Avatar Wed. 11/29/17 9:58pm Number Six:

Good Evening, efd & all! Nice synth work on that Belbury Circle track.
  Wed. 11/29/17 9:58pm Ajax:

It took all of my strength to hold my fist down during Riff Raff - typically I will punch the air as hard as I can during that song but I was on the bus so I had to sit still and it was very challenging. My God, Powerage!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/29/17 9:58pm chris_in_space:

Hey Funkospapiens. Just tuned in. Love the vibe of this 'new releases' show. Bummer about Keene and Young. Favourite AC/DC album is prb Powerage. Favourite Keene is "Ten Years After".
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/29/17 10:02pm Kat in Chicago:

Yay Bandcamp. I get a ton of stuff for my show on it too. Just followed you, EFD :)
Avatar Wed. 11/29/17 10:03pm Number Six:

@efd: Thanks, that explains the synth work!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/29/17 10:06pm efd:

@number six Exactly!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/29/17 10:07pm efd:

The AC/DC cover band I was in once did a show where we just covered Powerage front to back. So much fun.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/29/17 10:11pm chris_in_space:

What about the version of Rock and Roll Damnation on the If You Want Blood album? Good lord, that is rock and roll.

Mick Trouble!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/29/17 10:12pm medson:

@efd did the band have a clever name?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/29/17 10:13pm efd:

@medson The Dirt Cheap. I'll leave it to you whether it was clever or not.
Avatar Wed. 11/29/17 10:14pm Number Six:

@Julie M: re: medson's profile pic. Looks like he likes his retro sci-fi. It's a slightly altered still from a '50s flick called "The Deadly Mantis". I wonder how they ever got that carcass out of the tunnel.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/29/17 10:15pm medson:

@efd I like it
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/29/17 10:17pm Quasi Mojo:

Driver 67 is a very reasonable download, if that motivates anyone to go for it
  Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/29/17 10:19pm Julie M:

I like your profile gif, too, Number Six. Medson's made me think of The Wicker Man, only with a praying mantis. And he always inserts himself into the scene.

I like The Dirt Cheap for an AC/DC cover band, too.
Avatar Wed. 11/29/17 10:27pm Number Six:

@Julie M: Thanks. :) The Wicker Man was a pretty good flick.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/29/17 10:31pm Cooh John:

Didn't Persephones Bees have a release on Spoonful Records?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/29/17 10:33pm efd:

certainly possible, I don't recall offhand though
  Wed. 11/29/17 10:34pm Marc15:

What?
  Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/29/17 10:40pm Julie M:

Wait. Wicker Mantis. A band name? Anybody? Anybody? Alright, I give up. Might be time for bed soon. But I sure have been enjoying the show, efd.
Avatar Wed. 11/29/17 10:42pm Number Six:

It has possibilities. What type of music would they play?
Avatar Wed. 11/29/17 10:47pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

I'm here to inform.

uh-oh

luckily I preemptively narc'ed on myself
  Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/29/17 11:01pm Julie M:

@Number Six, hell, I was thinking ahead of myself. I dunno what kind of music Wicker Mantis would play. And yet I do, but I can't tag it in words. Kind of like The Peep Tempel but not much like Beth Ditto.

Teased us with a mic break! Hello all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/29/17 11:09pm efd:

hi there Jack, I guess your ears were burning!
  Wed. 11/29/17 11:18pm medson:

I met Walter Lure a few years ago. He was a nice dude.
Avatar Wed. 11/29/17 11:20pm Number Six:

@Julie M: Not bad, I was definitely thinking something punk/post with either a female lead or just an all female group.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/29/17 11:34pm Ricky:

Ace?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/29/17 11:35pm efd:

well, that's what they want you to think...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/29/17 11:36pm Ricky:

This is great.
  Wed. 11/29/17 11:39pm emily:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/29/17 11:39pm efd:

I just found out about that band... both their albums are worth checking out if you're into that sort of thing.

(I am)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/29/17 11:40pm efd:

speak up emily, I can't hear you. :)
  Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/29/17 11:51pm Julie M:

Someday perhaps there will be an occasion to mention bandcamp, Le Poisson Rouge, and The Bedazzler in the same sentence. I await that occasion. But for now, good night.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/29/17 11:55pm efd:

haha, goodnight Julie!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/29/17 11:56pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Thanks, efd. Good night.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/29/17 11:56pm efd:

always my pleasure, Ken!
