Anger and lust!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 9:05pm Tome:

when this record came out said to myself * there is a God * !
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 9:10pm efd:

That Pretenders album has been criminally underplayed by me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 9:10pm Tome:

to put it lightly Amen EFD ! still sounds as fresh as it did 38 years latter now !!
Avatar 🎃 Wed. 12/5/18 9:13pm Roberto:

The Pretenders with James and Pete was one of those lightning-in-a-bottle moments in rock music.
Avatar Wed. 12/5/18 9:14pm Loretta:

did someone say lust?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 9:16pm Tome:

....Anger and lust my senses running amok
Bewildered and deluded, have I been hit by a truck? ....

Loretta! Welcome back! It's been a while

Super catchy this Pretty Feelings track
Avatar 🎃 Wed. 12/5/18 9:42pm Roberto:

I knew EFD would be hip to this one sooner or later.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 9:43pm efd:

sooner or later?! I've been playing it since September!
Avatar 🎃 Wed. 12/5/18 9:43pm Roberto:

Mein bad. It must be all the other FMU DJs what just got hip.
  Wed. 12/5/18 9:44pm herb.nyc:

Greeeat songs now, "pretty feelings" is amazing. But starting with the 80s, I learned the Chills have a USandA tour in February. Shows at bell house and white eagle. Yay.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 9:45pm efd:

EXACTLY, Roberto! :D
Avatar 🎃 Wed. 12/5/18 9:45pm Roberto:

I see what the problem is. This might be the first EFD show I've been awake for since September. I keep passing out on the couch when I get home from work.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 9:48pm Aitch:

Irwin played another one earlier, Sunshine & the Rain, It's All in Your Mind that's again great pop.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 9:52pm efd:

I gotcha, Roberto. Happy to have you here tonight!
Avatar 🎃 Wed. 12/5/18 9:54pm Roberto:

Thanks, EFD!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 10:00pm Folsom:

So that is why Rex was on last night!
  Wed. 12/5/18 10:00pm steveL:

Sunshine and the Rain are pretty sharp. They sound like they might be able to break out. But, what do I know?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 10:25pm Aitch:

Imagine ACR named from The True Wheel, Eno "We are the 801
We are the central shaft
Looking for a certain ratio
Someone must have left it underneath the carpet
Looking up and down the radio
Oh, oh, nothing there this time
Looking for a certain ratio"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 10:29pm efd:

exactly right, Aitch!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 10:32pm Aitch:

Eno had his fingers in everything, even if just by sheer influence. Makes we want to Do the Strand.
  Wed. 12/5/18 10:35pm steveL:

Electric Citizen: Quatro-sequel vocals. Me likey.
  Wed. 12/5/18 10:35pm steveL:

Quatro-esque, damn it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 10:36pm efd:

I kind of liked "Quatro-sequel"... like a follow-up to Suzi

Autocorrect makes me an f-ing genius

Hello EFD, SteveL, and all nice people! About to drive home from New Brunswick so thanks for being my soundtrack.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 11:00pm efd:

hey Jack! Drive safely, I'll try to keep you awake. :) Surprised you're not back for more YLT!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 11:00pm efd:

bonsoir Phillippe!
  Wed. 12/5/18 11:04pm Daybreak, the Human:

Enjoy the seasonal Fairytale of NY w/ Pouges, but nice to hear KM in other ways. So many greats are hidden in 1 known song.
  Wed. 12/5/18 11:04pm Daybreak, the Human:

Liked Coit Tower this morning on Wake too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 11:05pm efd:

@Daybreak, I think I'm the one person who doesn't like that Pogues Xmas song, which is one reason I wanted to play a different Kirsty track tonight. Glad you're enjoying it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 11:06pm efd:

oh thanks!
  Wed. 12/5/18 11:10pm steveL:

Snapped Ankles:


B: Cool!
  Wed. 12/5/18 11:13pm Daybreak, the Human:

Thanks efd! I’m sure there are MANY fmu listeners who actually know her catalogue and the Pogues catalogue and the many for whom x-mas music is a limited catalogue that can drive any song into the ground, who feel the same. Thanks for the broadening experience!
Avatar 🎃 Wed. 12/5/18 11:18pm Hoboken Jack:

Long neck also on the bill Friday.
  Wed. 12/5/18 11:19pm Kat in Chicago:

That Pogues Christmas song reminds me of my awful ex-husband and I hate it very much. Love Kirsty though.
  Wed. 12/5/18 11:19pm Marc15:

No bagels?
  Wed. 12/5/18 11:21pm Kat in Chicago:

No ants in my lox plz.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 11:24pm efd:

only b.a.g.e.l.s.
Avatar Wed. 12/5/18 11:26pm Andrew S:

those Sadies tickets will be sweet fop somebody.. the last time i saw them was in a desolate location and the place looked like a barn anbd it must have been minus 35 degrees it was brutal cold but it was sure warm inside and packed they are so good. Wish I could remember what the place was called it was on a country road carleton place ontario its not there anymore
Avatar Wed. 12/5/18 11:30pm Andrew S:

speaking of bagels Montreal passed a ban on wood ovens but the citizens rose up and it looks like the existing bagel shops will be exempt. power to the people
  Wed. 12/5/18 11:35pm steveL:

This show is all over the place in the best ways! Thanks again, efd!
  Wed. 12/5/18 11:38pm Kat in Chicago:

Why did Montreal ban wood ovens?
  Wed. 12/5/18 11:38pm Kat in Chicago:

Nice to hear this Feelies track again.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 11:39pm efd:

I'm guessing it was some environmental thing, because of the smoke?
  Wed. 12/5/18 11:41pm Kat in Chicago:

I figured, but it seems like that wouldn’t be that big of a contributor.
  Wed. 12/5/18 11:43pm Kat in Chicago:

I want a bagel now. With l.o.x. Hold the ants.
Avatar 🎃 Wed. 12/5/18 11:46pm Hoboken Jack:

Mercer and Barone are playing on SATURDAY at VU.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 12/5/18 11:52pm Kat in Chicago:

Anyone here been to the Velvet Underground Experience? I found out about it late into my last visit, and it was kind of spenski so I passed. Barone and Mercer would have made it more enticing.
Avatar Wed. 12/5/18 11:57pm Andrew S:

yeah cuz of the smoke
Avatar Wed. 12/5/18 11:58pm Andrew S:

they werent targeting bagel shops they were collateral damage but reason won out
