@Pedro in Arlington: Not only serviceable, but a Billy Joel song that saved the E Street Band (during a money dispute with their manager).

@listener philip Agreed. It's a very "big" soundtrack. Desperate, over-the-top '80s emotion in every crevice

Also introduced me to some great songs I’d never heard before I heard their versions.

JoeBee tribbed Rachel? Must catch.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:48pm Gaylord Fields:

@WoodsOfNH (now Maine): It was originally by the sixties soul group the Flirtations. The Cobras rarely delved into originals. "Hot Dog (Watch Me Eat)" is a rare and great exception.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:48pm tim from washington:

Aw, man. This is sad and heavy. As a Michigan dude I can testify that the Cobras and Rachel Nagy were Pure Michigan. Rough on the edges, self-defeating yet badder ass then everyone else.

I'm glad I got to see the Cobras a bunch of times. Fortunately, I didn't catch any bad nights. The Cobras were also the last band I've seen live that scared me - hahaha. It was the first time I saw them on NYE 2000. Each band member was fully loaded on a different substance except for the sober drummer and there were some heavy bad vibes coming off the stage. I remember thinking "Whoa, I better step back a little bit in case shit gets off the hook - haha.

Also, I'll be forever grateful to the Cobras for covering the Equals 'Green Light'. That really opened a door for me. Thanks for the tribute, efd.
  12:48pm Danny in Poughkeepsie:

Sorry, morph, I was in the shower!

Never saw the Cobras, but Kate did once, I think at Mercury Lounge, on a bad night. Only did three songs, and the crowd turned ugly. But yeah, learning more about them only now.

Loved what you read, efd, and personally particularly the bit about putting your damn phone down and and just being at the show. I no longer even hesitate to shout "put your phones down" during shows.

Great tribute, efd.

But I'm a lazy, lazy man ...

Many published reports give Nagy's age as 37.

I think she was 47or 48. I watched a live performance from 2019 and she tells the crowd she just turned 45.

as of 2022 ...37 yrs young
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:08pm Wenzo Toad:

I heard 25
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:10pm tim from washington:

Late 40s could be right. I always assume someone on stage is older than me - haha. Seeing as the Cobras started in the mid-90s, any age earlier than mid 40s doesn't work mathematically.
  1:12pm bob dublon to EFD:

@Evan ...you never did answer me about using the band i was in for your Poprocks segment..Plasticland on Midnight records Uncle Floyd ..CBGBs etc..and at one time inc.Brian Ritchie ..violent femmes band

@Handy you don't need talent to be in a band; you just need to find the right knuckleheads to do it with.
Avatar The Evan "Funk" Davies Show Hellraiser 2022 Swag For Life Member 1:13pm Handy Haversack:

Yeah, I don't think she was fourteen when "Putty" was released.

But McGroovey, it has to be a band big enough to use my position to shame people. Whatever that requires, it's not something I have!

How’d they get a cat in a space suit? And all that litter gravel floating around the space capsule?

This whole thing sounds like a fabrication.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:24pm efd:

@Kat of course you would notice such a thing! ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:24pm karlward:

What happened to the last 90 minutes? Was I really watching daytime TV for all this time?

This is as inspiring as Knuckles the Dog!

And the most important question: is Perry Mason up next?
Avatar 1:24pm Hoboken Jack:

Hi EFD, Medson Man, McGroove Man, Handy Man, Bagpipe Dog, Jeff, Gaylord, Mike Sin, 126464, HyperDose, HP Ken, Frank, Nick, all. I dug the tribute but was away from the phone. Only saw the Cobras once back in the day at Maxwell's.

Glad you're back next to the radio where we all belong, Jack.
Avatar The Evan "Funk" Davies Show Hellraiser 2022 Swag For Life Member 1:26pm Handy Haversack:

Hey, Jack!
  1:26pm marcel:

thank you so much for the space cat song

i love félicette
Avatar 1:26pm Van:

I just found a story about the cat - she didn't have a great time. The French selected 14 stray cats, Felicette was a calm cat that didn't get fat during "space cat training," they had electrodes implanted into their brain, the space flight was only about 15 mins long, and they euthanized her about 2 months afterwards.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:27pm karlward:

TIL that Perry Mason is on Bandcamp: perrymason.bandcamp.com
Avatar 1:27pm Van:

I hear this is nearly identical to Shatner's experience
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:28pm efd:

@Van aw, I only read as far as seeing that she survived the flight itself.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:28pm McGroovey:

Heya, Jack-o!
  1:29pm Andres:

A bronze statue honouring Félicette can be found at the International Space University in Strasbourg, France.
Avatar 1:29pm Van:

@EFD yep, she did survive. I can only imagine what the inside of that capsule was like when it was plummeting to earth
  1:30pm marcel:

yeah no way this wasnt super stressful in itself no matter the circumstances. i choose to believe the version in the song (she had an interesting trip, got lots of dreamies)
Avatar The Evan "Funk" Davies Show Hellraiser 2022 Swag For Life Member 1:39pm Handy Haversack:

I don't think we have been getting consent from any of the animals we send into space. Stories with just villains and victims. And space, I guess.
  1:40pm bob Dublon drummer:

@EFD....im thinkin Plasticland would absolutely fit with your popRocks...but then again so would a million other neo psych 80s bands
Avatar The Evan "Funk" Davies Show Hellraiser 2022 Swag For Life Member 1:43pm Handy Haversack:

Would subscribe to "Magazines"!

There may not be enough bassists to support all the groups out there, but that will just mean fewer groups until the bassist supply chain issues are resolved.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:56pm efd:

ohmigosh, I just saw that Madlaina Peer, one of the three bassists in onetwothree, died a few weeks ago!
Avatar 1:56pm Hoboken Jack:

I just ordered that Scarlet Drops CD the other day, while ordering the Joy Cleaner odds and sods comp from Jigsaw. And a used Sarah Dougher disc, why not.

Hey, Jack, you said the Baby Shakes/Exbats show was canceled, right? Tix are still available through Songkick. Is that just an oversight, do you think?
Avatar 2:04pm Hoboken Jack:

Yeah Handy, I just looked in my seetickets account and it says (cancelled) next to that one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:05pm tim from washington:

This Bush Tetras' cover of Run Run Run and the Mirrors' cover of Foggy Notion that Creamo played yesterday are the 2 best Velvet's covers I've heard in a long time!

I think a friend might have got us tix to Nick Cave and Warren Ellis the night of the Eyelids show, but there are two nights of that, and I think he got tix to both. Since I am young and vital I shall simply rock-star it. Maybe I'll add a third concert!

If anyone has watched the first MacGruber on Peacock, this Paranoid Style reminds me just a little of Kristen Wiig's hilarious rhyming song.

This Superchunk is so good. And the new single they just put out today is good too, and has a fantastic lyric video where you can play "spot the cassette you used to own."
