Thanks Ken!

12539, don't think that's not on my mind -- especially considering the local temperature!

I miss the Evan Davies Funk Show.

BASF Records? Nice.

close only counts in horsehoes and pop lyric rhyme schemes :)
Avatar Wed. 5/29/13 9:09pm dale:

you can be honest - as exciting as the atmosphere of psf seems, sitting in a tent forever is not much fun. i had fun listening, but i was able to be drunk for most of it.
Avatar Wed. 5/29/13 9:10pm efd:

Hi Kat, Barkevious, Loretta, RRN63, G, and all lurkers! Great to be back! Hope you're all enjoying this small selection of the records I picked up in Barcelona!
Avatar Wed. 5/29/13 9:10pm Mailman Tom:

Thanks for playing the imports!
Avatar Wed. 5/29/13 9:10pm Holly in NC:

Welcome back, efd!
Was just listening to 'Wings of Love', the titular track to recently released album of Shuggie Otis songs from his "lost years", which opens w. seagull effects .... Starbreaker came instantly to mind!

fwiw said lp (Wings of Love) is great, that song, unfortunately not so much

es muy bueno
Avatar Wed. 5/29/13 9:25pm G:

singles would be solteros in spanish, but it means unmarried people, not a 45. the english phrase is a pun, and might be tricky to do in spanish
Avatar Wed. 5/29/13 9:25pm Mike East:

Checking in for a bit. Thanks for your efforts at primavera, Evan. I have the archives open in two Windows on my home computer, just waiting to be enjoyed...if only the current programming wasn't so excellent, I could dive right in.

@G this is a family progrim.

oof. cant imagine any cat enjoying being shaved?
Avatar Wed. 5/29/13 9:30pm G:

i kinds think the maine coon liked it. the vet did it. we did not have central a/c!
Avatar Wed. 5/29/13 9:31pm Holly in NC:

@G - We just trimmed our long hair *way* down, she loves the feeling but hates the look! Seriously, she stays in our yard so the neighbor cats can't see her.

Avatar Wed. 5/29/13 9:32pm Kat in Chicago:

My friends just gave their Maine coon a lion cut, took 3 hours!
Avatar Wed. 5/29/13 9:32pm Loretta:

@G: I gave my Persian a 'puppy cut' & he was very shy afterward.
Avatar Wed. 5/29/13 9:39pm G:

@Holly: cats notoriously hate being laughed at by their fellow highschoolers.

@Loretta: it was not a shave to the skin cut, it was a crew cut, kind of. maybe that's a puppy cut???
Avatar Wed. 5/29/13 9:41pm Loretta:

@G: yeah, that's what I call a puppy cut. it's amazing the amount of fur that came off him.
Avatar Wed. 5/29/13 9:44pm Holly in NC:

@G & @Loretta - Fur, oh lord. I furminate (new verb!) all 3 cats 2x day, I could've knitted 10 sweaters already this season. You know that's a thing (crafting w cat hair), right? Books on Amazon, etc.
Avatar Wed. 5/29/13 9:46pm Holly in NC:

Love this guadalupe plata album.
Avatar Wed. 5/29/13 9:46pm Loretta:

@Holly: I saw a group of people who get together & knit purses from their cat's fur! I watch way too much Animal Planet... LOL!
Avatar Wed. 5/29/13 9:47pm Stevel:

Uh oh! Someone turned on the ROCK knob!
  Wed. 5/29/13 9:47pm Tim in VT:

Love Guadalupe wanna go back to Austin. Wah

guadalupe plata + livids: uh HUH.
Avatar Wed. 5/29/13 9:49pm Holly in NC:

@Loretta - if I knew how to knit, I would absolutely join in, thereby becoming most insane cat lady ever. Thank goodness I cannot.
Avatar Wed. 5/29/13 9:49pm efd:

Guadalupe Plata no tiene gracia.

Hi Funk Fans :) Hi EFD :)

This song is why I put the headphone into the computer before pulling up the scream, er stream :)
Avatar Wed. 5/29/13 9:52pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Avatar Wed. 5/29/13 9:53pm G:

@Loretta: When you bathe a longhair like a miane coon, you can see the cat's visible volume dry is really as much fur as body.
Avatar Wed. 5/29/13 9:55pm G:

a wet cat looks like a halfdrowned chihuahua

Thanks for the scotch and music break Evan. Really hit the spot!
Avatar Wed. 5/29/13 10:00pm Loretta:

a wet kitty is not a happy kitty!
Avatar Wed. 5/29/13 10:03pm Stevel:

Pretty sure I have to share this bit of feline mayhem now.

Stranglers. On the B&W vinyl?
Avatar Wed. 5/29/13 10:15pm efd:

Yes indeed!
Avatar Wed. 5/29/13 10:16pm Barkevious Shabazz:

And the Fad Gadget soundalikearama starts...... now.
Avatar Wed. 5/29/13 10:16pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...I think this Stranglers influenced 'Nose Goblins' by Ren&Stimpy (note ref. to 'dog' & 'cat')...
Avatar Wed. 5/29/13 10:16pm Stevel:

Pretty sure I bought that new. Great album. Still very strange.
Avatar Wed. 5/29/13 10:17pm Stevel:

RRN63: That's hard to argue with.

That's funny - that already crossed my mind as one way to figure out if DJs are or-iginally from the general area or perhaps not.

Is Murray Head a big White Sox fan? Because...they totally got owned again today.
  Wed. 5/29/13 11:35pm ?:

Sounds so much like Pete Townshend
  Wed. 5/29/13 11:35pm Matt:

Hmm...the path from this to One Night in Bangkok must have been very interesting and drug-filled.
Avatar Wed. 5/29/13 11:36pm efd:

It does seem like an odd phrase for an Englishman to latch onto.
Avatar Wed. 5/29/13 11:36pm Parq:

I remember this Murray Head song so vividly, And, of course, he was the lead, Judas, in the original LP version of "Jesus Christ Superstar" -- none of the 87 billion other versions of that property have even come close.
Avatar Wed. 5/29/13 11:36pm davex:

Nice reference. Time to read Shoeless Joe again.
Avatar Wed. 5/29/13 11:36pm Uncle Michael:

Beats having too much heaven on his mind, I suppose.
Avatar Wed. 5/29/13 11:37pm Parq:

Q-Mark, interestingly enough, that song was covered -- lamely -- by Daltry on one of his solo outings.
Avatar Wed. 5/29/13 11:37pm efd:

?, maybe that's what inspired Roger Daltrey to cover it? But the original blows the Daltrey version away, imho.
Avatar Wed. 5/29/13 11:38pm davex:

efd: But does he say "or-ange"?
Avatar Wed. 5/29/13 11:38pm Uncle Michael:

I prefer Daltrey's Leo Sayer penned material.
Avatar Wed. 5/29/13 11:38pm efd:

On the other hand, I prefer Daltrey's version of "Avenging Annie" to Andy Pratt's.

[awaits torches and pitchforks]

Avatar Wed. 5/29/13 11:41pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Avatar Wed. 5/29/13 11:42pm Parq:

Hmm, different approach, I dunno that I would say that I like one or the other better -- Daltry's "Show Go On" and "Annie" or the originals. Pratt had the hook of singing the "They call me Avenging Annie" in a falsetto first-person. Daltry's people changed it to "They call her ... "
Avatar Wed. 5/29/13 11:48pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...Daltrey too relentlessy matcho for that...
Avatar Wed. 5/29/13 11:49pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

&/or vocal range...

Thanks, Evan, for a great selection and keeping me going through the night.

Whoa, this Dry Bonnet cover is killer! Speaking of arguably better than the original ...
