Word has it that this is going to be a very special EFD show

What could possibly go wrong?

@Quasi that's what I heard too!
@UM it's always something

It's the holidays. Live band in the studio. We'll take the risk.

What do I get?
Avatar Wed. 12/12/18 9:06pm JakeGould:

This show will be more exciting than the news that the MTA raised the speed limit on the N and R trains this past week!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/12/18 9:07pm Quasi Mojo:

I that a joke or did that really happen?
Avatar Wed. 12/12/18 9:12pm JakeGould:

@QuasiMojo: YES! They did! It was 15mph since an MTA accident in 1996, but the new MTA chief has a “Speed Team” that is assigned the task of reassessing speed limits and they raised it to… 30mph!!! I can get home from “the city” in less than 30 minutes now!!!

@JakeGould wow that is big news. Which corridor of the line was it? Manhattan, Brooklyn, or Queens? Or the whole thing?
Avatar Wed. 12/12/18 9:15pm JakeGould:

The Brooklyn stretch. All of it.

For a 77 band, these tracks all glisten. Top flight production by MR.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/12/18 9:27pm efd:

many of the earlier tracks were produced by "The other Martin," Martin Hannett!

Buzzcocks. saw 'em once, at least!
  Wed. 12/12/18 9:30pm DJ E:

I consider "What Do I Get?" a near perfect song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/12/18 9:31pm Quasi Mojo:

@DJE agreed.
  Wed. 12/12/18 9:32pm DJ E:

Got to see The Buzzcocks twice about 4 years ago. Webster Hall with Titus Andronicus opening and Irving Plaza. Both shows were blast and I was surprised how youthful Shelley's voice was.
Avatar Wed. 12/12/18 9:32pm TDK60:

Everybody's Happy Nowadays - a near perfect song. on and on it goes..

Of course.

Nice stereo mix, too.

These tracks are all from the new album.
Avatar Wed. 12/12/18 9:48pm herb.nyc:

That Buzzcocks set was so on the mark, thanks Evan. And Savak sound hot. I was at union hall the night of the fire. Was Savak the band that (literally) just finished when the alarm rang?

GREAT show as always...

Evan , last week I said to my lovely Emily - Evan has to wait a whole week to pay tribute to the fantastic Pete Shelley .
You played all of his music , most for the first time in the New York area . The New Afternoon Show sst at the center of our new wave punk world . Thank you .
Avatar 🎃 Wed. 12/12/18 10:32pm Hoboken Jack:

I owned a Timex Sinclair but at age 14 was not yet familiar with Pete Shelley. In fact, Magazine would cross my radar first!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/12/18 10:39pm efd:

gw, thanks so much for that comment. Pete Shelley's music was such an integral part of my college years... it was a tough loss for sure
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/12/18 10:42pm Sir Richard Slouch:

I had to take off three weeks from my radio show at WMUH in Allentown and Pete passes just as the stretch begins.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/12/18 10:43pm efd:

oof, I feel your pain Sir Richard.
Jack, I had a friend who had a KayPro, I think, but I don't remember knowing anyone with a Sinclair.
Avatar 🎃 Wed. 12/12/18 10:45pm Hoboken Jack:

That Cloud Nothings track was smoking!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/12/18 10:46pm Aitch:

Sinclair was an English thing, USA and here in OZ more likely to have a TRS 80 or Commodore 64 (Apple II if you were rich)
  Wed. 12/12/18 11:40pm sufferwords:

Buzzcocks were our band- almost like a private reserve - i got to hang etc. - open for them - a song for every phase of a love story - they were never anything but thrilling live - guess there’s something to be said for outlasting your hero’s - still it hurts to do so
  Wed. 12/12/18 11:46pm DJ E:

I'll never forget how that the Buzzcocks show at Webster Hall in 2014 had just as many "older" fans as there were late teen/early 20-somethings. Their appeal crossed generations.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/12/18 11:47pm Alex of Chicago:

Brilliant show. I'm working, but I'll catch the rest tomorrow.
  Wed. 12/12/18 11:48pm David Colangelo:

Can hear Buzzcocks in 999, Robert Smith, many others....great musician....RIP Pete....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/12/18 11:53pm efd:

thanks everyone
  Wed. 12/12/18 11:55pm DJ E:

No, thank you
  Wed. 12/12/18 11:58pm Andy the painter:

oh....i remember hearing this song for the first time as a (then) failing Catholic. very inspiring.
thanks pete!
