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.
August 17, 2011: LIMIÑANAS and APB live sets!
Listen to this show: Pop‑up player!
One of the hottest bands of the past two years and an iconic post-punk band that dates back to the early '80s both play live tonight on The Evan "Funk" Davies Show! France's Limiñanas released two killer singles in 2010 (one of which, "Je Ne Suis Pas Très Drogue," was efd's #1 single of the year) and followed those up with an outstanding full-length LP on the Trouble In Mind label. Their fuzz-filled French garage-pop is at once familiar and unique.
APB were the first band to play live on my show back in 2006, and they return for a second appearance! Best known for their post-punk classic "(I'd Like To) Shoot You Down," the band is about to release its latest album Jaguar on the Oatcake label. They're in town for dates at the Brighton Bar in Long Branch NJ, Mirelles in Westbury Long Island (My Father's Place 40th Anniv. show), and managed to fit in a stop at WFMU as well.
Very special thanks to Dave B, Mo Tuffy, Slocker, Bill & Lisa, and DJ Del for their invaluable assistance this evening.
