I've heard "Back When My Hair was Short" twice in the past two weeks on 70s on 7, so it's refreshing to hear something else from Gun Hill Road.

sad to see the air horn icons have disappeared. gearing up for the marathon i guess. perhaps an overzealous blasting of the airhorn today will help ease the pain.

Silverhead! Good god…when I was a kid in the early 70sI went to my cousins band practice & Ace Supreme was a song they covered.This led me to seek them out…’16 & Savaged’ I believe was the album…a spinal tappishly cheerful bundle of misogynistic impulses that would not fly today

  12:36pm Morphe':

efd (and all who missed it) efd - that was a great article ya sent in last week to Pseu's show Re: Mark Edwards = My DAD IS DEAD ..
Fav quote: " I’ve always thought the people of Cleveland had a remarkable resilience in the face of national jokes, declining industry and job base, dilapidated housing stock, losing sports teams, you get the picture. It definitely contributed to the yeah-but-we’re-still-here mentality, but also a constant background noise of, “What’s the next bad thing that’s going to happen?” I grew up in a poor neighborhood and lived inside the city limits most of my life there, until my thirties. So nighttime automatic-weapons fire, street fights, and break-ins were not uncommon. When I was a kid, I had my bike stolen from our garage. When I was a teenager, my car was stolen from the grocery-store parking lot where I worked. When I was 10, I was bitten severely by a German shepherd on my newspaper route, requiring months of wound care and rehab once it became infected. My mom was sick throughout my early teens and passed away when I was 17. I was hit by a car, walking home from work when I was 16, and nearly had to have my leg amputated; it ended up being an inch shorter than the other one, and I’ve had a limp ever since. So you could say I had a typical Cleveland upbringing...."

@Tim, he is also the father of the actress who played the daughter in The Wonder Years.

De Barres was also the replacement for Robert Palmer in Power Station!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:39pm efd:

as I said, I was only scratching the surface of Michael des Barres' career!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:40pm tim from washington:

@carmichael - you just tripled my knowledge of Des Barres!

Speaking of which whenever I see Power Supply on the playlist I wonder "Why, oh why, is the DJ playing Power Station?" hahaha
Avatar 12:40pm Dutch:

@morphe: Well, you might approach it Schopenhauer style "The safest way to not be miserable is to not expect to be very happy."
  12:40pm bob_ham:

I think I found a new favorite band: Power Supply.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:41pm tim from washington:

Power Supply's album title could work for Power Station too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:42pm steveo:

what about Air Supply?
  12:42pm clarke:

no power at all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:43pm WoodsOfNH (now Maine):

Ha! Yeah, I glanced up at the popup and read it as "Air Supply"...kind of a mind-bender for a couple of seconds.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:43pm steveo:

[stares at the word Supply until it becomes an incoherent jumble of unlikely scratch marks]
  12:43pm clarke:

power ballads with little to none.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:44pm tim from washington:

Air Supply is not out of the question on a John Allen playlist. Or maybe that's Spyro Gyra?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:44pm steveo:

  12:46pm clarke:

i do what i can.
  12:46pm clarke:

what was the name of stalingrad before josef?

I recant my statement about the daughyter in Wonder Years. She is the daughter of Mike D'Abo of Mandfred Mann. Got my British rockers confused ...

well, like all the kids, this is the procrastination move. i am putting stuff in a (very close-by) storage unit. will come back for it in a van, later.
  12:57pm Tom from Stirling:

Thats cause Pays P. is crazy aka fou.
Avatar The Evan "Funk" Davies Show Hellraiser 2022 Swag For Life Member 12:58pm Handy Haversack:

It would be "pay(i) pay. "Pie-ees" would be the Spanish pronunciation for "pais." That terminal "s" is silent in French when followed by a consonant.

If that's the way those Pays P tracks appear on the record, that's mangled French, and you can be given for any confusion.

Your neighbors are very lucky to have a neighbor such as yourself, Asheville J.

Whoa, this is some very un-Alice Alice. In a good way!

the album this comes from is really good.

This is one of the better "Oh dang, I need to get with the 80s" tracks from the old-timers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:58pm Sproutsonic:

Clones! I've always loved this one. Requested it at the roller skating rink in Peterborough Ontario in the 80s as a kid at my birthday party, and the DJ looked at me like I was crazy!
  1:58pm gorp:

this is the one he doesn't remember recording right?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:58pm Asheville Jon:

i am sure they enjoy brief moments of WFMU brilliance. (I also live kinda out in the (rapidly decreasing) "country" part of asheville, so my neighbors are not super close)
  1:58pm Andres:

Gary Numan and Alice Cooper touring together?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:58pm luka:

@gorp this is the LAST one he recalls
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:59pm luka:

he doesn't remember a lick of Armed Forces, Zipper Catches Skin or DaDa
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:59pm Rich in Washington:

For decades I 'ironically' liked this song and now I unironically love it.
  1:59pm gorp:

@luka haha well at least his mind went out on top!
Avatar 2:00pm Mister Dobalina:

I forgot how much I like tech segment of this show.
  2:00pm clarke:

u guys have heard alice's latest album right? not the 'average' cooper
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:01pm luka:

DaDa is terrifying. so is ZCS. just unsettling. Armed Forces is also weird, but has "Skeletons in the Closet" which rules.
  2:03pm BH:

checking in from a part of the country where the forecast says we're about to drop from 65 degrees to 25 degrees in the next 18 hours

imagine how terrifying that would be before people were able to forecast the weather

Well played, @Carmichael
  2:07pm gorp:

I'ma have to check em out! I remember likin the Class of 1984 song. Alice Cooper was my second ever concert in like 2004 at the Sandusky Ohio Theater of all places. Still put on a good show after all those years of drug abuse and golfing.
Avatar The Evan "Funk" Davies Show Hellraiser 2022 Swag For Life Member 2:08pm Handy Haversack:

Drugs must have kept the golf from getting to him.

Did someone say ...drugs?
  2:12pm gorp:

speaking of drugs - anybody goin to that DFA anniversary showcase thing at Knockdown? Trying to decide if it's worth the 60 dollars plus whatever I'll have to spend on supplements
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:14pm Ryansterlingvirtue:

best new band.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:14pm Carmichael:

I read somewhere that Cooper at one point was drinking Tab cola by the boatload.

Flush the Fashion had a new-wavish cover of the Music Machine's "Talk Talk". It wasn't bad, but it's no Music Machine.

It's the only Alice Cooper record I have. Clones was one of teenage me's favorite songs that year.

The album very quickly went into cutouts. Side A is a great listen, because you get the payoff of the songs Clones. I'm not sure I've listened to side B more than once or twice.
Avatar The Evan "Funk" Davies Show Hellraiser 2022 2:31pm Hoboken Jack:

Late hello! Was digging the song, then happy to learn it's Lewsburg, who I have an album by.

Avatar The Evan "Funk" Davies Show Hellraiser 2022 Swag For Life Member 2:38pm Handy Haversack:

efd, we tried to get tix to see Lulu Lewis at Mercury Lounge, but they no longer deliver tickets except via an app. No box office anymore. So I guess we'll head down there the day of the show and see if they will let us exchange money for goods and services and let us in the damn door without an app.

@Figgsrock ha! will watch after the show!

@Handy Gatekeeping based on access to technology, intended or not, is just...backwards. Is it the same for Bowery Ballroom?

My Personal Wheelhouse -- opening for Altered Kittens friday
Avatar The Evan "Funk" Davies Show Hellraiser 2022 Swag For Life Member 2:45pm Handy Haversack:

Yup, ChukAmok. Oddly, I was able to get Ticketweb tix for the Chats at Warsaw, which is in their group, but maybe they haven't upgraded the wilds of Greenpoint yet. Sharon Van Etten and Angel Olsen at Central Park Summerstage is right out, though.
  2:47pm Miss Georgia Peach:

Great show today!
  2:49pm gorp:

@handy hey! They def will take your physical money as long as it doesn't sell out which unfortunately somehow seems to be every single show these days :/
  2:51pm clarke:

fun-tastic, once again!! thnx!
Avatar The Evan "Funk" Davies Show Hellraiser 2022 Swag For Life Member 2:52pm Figgsrock:

I know a couple of people comment after I posted the Record Store Day list and I couldn't respond because I was writing stories about the list for work. I'd have to say that my highlights are Superchunk's Incidental Music, the Prince Gold Experience, the Blondie EP with two unreleased tracks and The Who's It's Hard 40th with Daltrey singing "Eminence Front."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:52pm efd:

@clarke! Thanks! Good luck with the packing, etc. When's the move?
  2:54pm clarke:

23rd - thanks!!
Avatar The Evan "Funk" Davies Show Hellraiser 2022 Swag For Life Member 2:56pm Handy Haversack:

K8 will definitely want that Prince release, Figgsrock!

Many thanks, efd! I'd say the show was capital, but that's a dirty word around these parts. Let's just say it was excellent in any case!

Later on, all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:56pm efd:

@Miss Georgia Peach Thank you! Love your version of "Back Side Of Dallas," was hoping to get to it today but I think I'm gonna fail in that mission. :(
Avatar The Evan "Funk" Davies Show Hellraiser 2022 Swag For Life Member 2:57pm Handy Haversack:

And thanks, gorp -- that's what we figured. But still.
