efd's avatar View efd's profile Options

Every show starts with the ’70s! We’ll rediscover forgotten rockers, revisit unfairly maligned disco beats and replay power-pop favorites. Next: plenty of new releases, occasional live bands and more. Don’t let the nickname confuse you.

Options May 11, 2010: "I hope you have good limiters:" VALLEY LODGE live set!
Power popsters extraordinaire Valley Lodge have the distinction of being the first EFD booking to come about as a direct result of Twitter! Sadly, details of the exchange are lost -- at least until the Library Of Congress gets that archive up and running. The band includes current and former members of Cobra Verde, Satanicide, Walt Mink, Sensefield, 2 Skinnee J's, Uptown Sinclair, and Tragedy (the world's greatest all-metal tribute to the Bee Gees). Their hooktastic songs are guaranteed to make fans of The Raspberries, New Pornographers and Cheap Trick stop what they're doing and turn up the volume. Their most recent album is Semester At Sea (Explosive).

Listener comments!

  11:09pm efd:

so far this comment board is the equivalent of an audience at a New York City rock show.
  11:11pm john:

Whoa. Do they still have those?
  11:11pm DJ Terre T:

Hahahaha! Better it should be like a NY Rock than like BK Vegan's commenters!
  11:12pm efd:

TT, that's an excellent point. Thanks for your tweets and Facebook comments re Valley Lodge!

Hi, John!
  11:13pm Aharon:

Evan, if this were a New York rock show we'd be talking loudly to people not present about how much we like the music.
  11:14pm AZ:

I was eating a burrito while listening. Isn't that what most of the people at NYC rock shows are doing, too?
  11:14pm Michael from the Left Coast:

EFD is that some kind of insult?
  11:15pm Mark from C-Bus:

Enjoyed the Tubes song the started show. That "took me back" indeed!
  11:16pm Michael from the Left Coast:

A Lennon and McCarntey song--a rarity on the Funk program
  11:16pm john:

Hey Evan!

Actually, if this were a New York rock show we'd be sneering about how much better the band was two years ago when we saw them at an all-ages open mike show in a basement in Greenpoint.
  11:16pm Brian:

The Tubes were my first 'big' concert. My parents had no idea...
  11:18pm efd:

ok, I hereby rescind my misguided attempt to characterize the early quietude of the comments. Hi everyone!

Valley Lodge coming up in about 10 minutes!
  11:19pm Michael K.:

and taylor hanson was my first big crush...
  11:19pm nicole:

I am so excited for this Valley Lodge
  11:19pm efd:

Something for everyone on the show tonight!
  11:22pm Michael from the Left Coast:

EFD--if you played Skafish or Klaus Nomi or Jayne County there would really be something for everyone
  11:26pm DJ Terre T:

TEENAGE LUST!!!!!!!!!!! Thx 4 playing that ---u KNOW u gotz 2 give all the informational notes on that 4 the peeps!!
  11:28pm AZ:

That Teenage Lust song was unbelievably great.
  11:29pm DJ Terre T:

Aww Evan u goitta give the provenance of of who TEENAGE LUST were from 1973 NYC
  11:29pm Michael from the Left Coast:

Bomp does mail order too
  11:30pm Michael from the Left Coast:

James Iha and Adam Schlesinger
  11:32pm DJ Terre T:

@ Michael K: ru CYNICS Michael K!? SMOOCH!
  11:33pm Pete:

The Tommy Bolin "Teaser" record originally came out on Epic
  11:33pm john:

Hey, just for the record, I have an ex-Cynic sitting next to me here. Just saying...
  11:37pm Aharon:

It's like someone doped a strand of DNA with the EFD archives and grew this band in a test tube.
  11:43pm Laurie:

Does Phil have a twitter? I would follow him.
  11:44pm efd:

Phil is @dreamyphil, but he has yet to actually tweet.
  11:44pm DJ Terre T:

Good idea Laurie-does any in Valley Lodge have TWitter feed? Can u tell us what the handle(s) are pls?
  11:45pm Camel:

Just sayin. If I'm on past midnight, the rider clearly specifies that I get a doubled appearance fee, and the union guys who do my setup get time and a half, plus dinner money in cash.
  11:45pm Laurie:

  11:46pm Laurie:

Does anyone else remember when Dave Hill and Phil Costello took Miami by storm? that was amazing.
  11:47pm efd:

there's also @valleylodge, the band account
  11:47pm AZ:

EFD, this performance is an unbelievable follow-up to the White Hills set last week. You're on a hot streak!
  11:48pm efd:

thanks AZ! Just wait til next week, and the week after that!
  11:48pm AZ:

(which is not intended to suggest that you've ever been on a cold streak.)
  11:55pm mark:

Can the Valley Lodge live material be downloadd?
  11:56pm mark:

  11:56pm Joe:

It will, hopefully, be posted on the Free Music Archive? At Freemusicarchive.org?
  11:57pm efd:

This set will be available for free download on the Free Music Archive set (http://freemusicarchive.org) in a few days.
  11:59pm mark:

thank you!
  11:59pm Mark from C-Bus:

Any upcoming tours for Valley Lodge?
  12:00am efd:

note to Camel @ 11:45 - you'd better watch your step, I'm just waiting for a certain someone to come through and then I'm kicking you and your hump to the curb.
  12:00am Michael K.:

yes, Dj Terre T!
It is Michael k. , I always listen Live when I can! (esp. to Skippy's show) I'm sending smoooooches to EVAN & YOU and everyOne at WFMU !
Super Tuesday Still Applies!
  12:02am Camel:

I suppose I should just go hump myself.
  12:04am Aharon:

Wowzers. Good music.
  12:05am efd:

get ready for Phil to blow you all away with his power vocal cords.
  12:05am Joe:

I am clapping during the hand clap section.

Feel free to join in.
  12:07am Captain:

Whoa -- I think he just copped the guitar solo from Photograph by Def Leppard....
  12:14am Danne D:

Hey Funk Fans. Loving the show so far EFD!

*ducks before Aharon can fling any bananas at him*
  12:15am DJ Terre T:

@ efd -VALLEY LODGE did it! I'm embarrassed i cant remember if Dave Hill was in Cobra Verde when they played my show! Dave Hill is so funny and so musically talented! I usually hate iTunes coz i dont like mp3 -much rather have LP or CD---but i'm goin 2 iTunes right now!
@ Michael K--- Har! yes "Skippy" is dreamy!!! But so are you!
  12:17am Aharon:

Danne, you should know by now that it's not bananas I and my kind fling.
  12:18am Danne D:

*ducks again, this time wearing a plastic tarp ala a Gallagher show*
  12:19am efd:

Thanks Terre, glad you enjoyed it!
Hey Danne!

Mark from C-Bus (what is that, anyway?) - I don't think there are any VL dates scheduled, but check their site for updates (see link in the playlist to the left)
  12:21am Danne D:

another typical Tim Hudson performance: 1 Earned run, 6 hits, 1 strikeout and um, 6 walks. At least Jenks didn't blow up tonight (blow-ups by one of my pitchers were the headline for 3 straight days of yahoo fantasy bball articles which must be some kind of record).

Props to the wonderful Terre T (you'll be sad to know that I had to make a slight change to my sneaker of choice :(
  12:25am FMU:

Very temporary format change to News-Talk. This is your only warning.
  12:26am DJ Terre T:

YES IT IS theee Oi Punk BUSINESS tix ya got there for Asbury LAnes!!!
  12:26am AZ:

EFD, your vocal prowess on "...putting out fire..." surpasses even your weekly performance of "midnight."
  12:28am DJ Terre T:

I 4got 2 play HARRY MAY by the Business this past Sat, when i gave those tix away! Im sooo tempted 2 go!
  12:29am DJ Terre T:

Hai Danne D-- u mean u dont have Puffy White Reeboks kicking everyone's a** anymore?!
  12:29am Danne D:

thought it was his weekly performance of "ticket", AZ :)

Not calling in this week to try to win, but is there a "whatever show Evan deems coolest" option for winning - I trust his judgment more than my own :)
  12:32am AZ:

Danne: yes, of course. Maria Muldaur still gets to sing "midnight."
  12:37am bill k:

This sputnik song is nice.
  12:39am efd:

Bill, I agree! And I feel that I owe them a bit of an apology, as I'll explain on the air shortly.
  12:44am Joshua K:

Curses!!! I totally forgot about valley lodge tonight and was watching Breaking Bad instead. Now i gotta hit up the archives tomorrow at work.
  12:47am osvi:

Them funky beats...
  1:19am Danne D:

We're back in NYC rock show mode again. But Evan's show just has that mesmerizing effect on us sometimes :)

Oops! didn't see TT's message about my kicks - yes and no. The specific Reeboks (the BB4600 II's) are apparently no longer sold at foot locker - the only place that sold 'em. The BB4600's sold elsewhere (which are different and IMO inferior) are still sold in a couple places - ordered 2 pairs from Sears. almost had to get a totally new model of sneakers though for the first time in like 24 years!

I'm checking out board peeps - but will catch the end on the archives. Thanks for a great show as always EFD!!! Farewell Funketeers!
  1:22am efd:

Have a good night, Danne!
  1:25am AZ:

The shift into part II always gets me...
  1:29am efd:

yeah! Haven't heard that in ages, sounds great on the CD too.
  1:36am AZ:

Did you catch the somewhat amazing interview with Mr. Ant in The Quietus two weeks ago?

  1:42am AZ:

You could at least play The Archies...
  1:48am efd:

yeah, that's what i was thinking too at first... but I'm not sure if I want to get into playing "Billie Jean" or "Scarborough Faire."
  1:48am efd:

didn't see that interview - thanks for the link, I'll check it out later in the week. The link text is pretty intriguing in itself!
  11:49am Loretta:

Teenage Lust & the Lustettes...... wow..... a blast fom the past!!! we need more Lust!!!
