Hey efd. I'm postponed due to weather conditions.

@fleep - Daughter wanted to ride bike after work. It was rainy and about 50. I had my winter coat and gloves on. Therefore, it must me 70 and cloudy in Kansas, half-way between us.
  9:12pm will:

You're funny EFD. Split Squad -- git on board!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:14pm efd:

Hey everyone, thanks for tuning in on this crazy rainy night (in the Northeast, at least)! Spotlighting The Split Squad's members' other bands, then a killer live set coming up at the bottom of the hour!
  9:22pm Lonely Planet Boy:

Luckily, storm system spared us here in SE Va; thoughts are with those in deep south. Happy to be able to listen!
  9:25pm adam:

the skunks tune was great - never heard it before, like most of the stuff i discover on here. thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:28pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Santa Ana winds stirring up a fire in Rancho Cucamonga, CA, forcing lots of folks to evacuate their homes.
  9:29pm Eddy in Australia:

Hi EFD and all. Really looking forward to the Split Squad set. And later I might have to watch Valley Girl again!
  9:39pm Eddy in Australia:

So EFD actually stands for Evan Fanboy Davies?

Avatar 9:52pm dc pat:

CLEM FUCKING BURKE. That's all I have to say...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:52pm efd:

My happiness was multiplied a million times when they did this AC/DC tune.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:53pm efd:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:53pm efd:

Clem Burke + AC/DC = efd seriously losing his ess-hit.
Avatar 9:55pm dc pat:

+ Keith Streng + Eddie + Mike = fekkin rawk.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:56pm efd:

and don't forget my man Josh on the keys!
  9:56pm mike east:

Damn- will definitely have to check out the beginning if this set on the archive. These guys rock! Thanks efd!
Avatar 9:58pm dc pat:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:58pm efd:

My pleasure, Mike!
Avatar 9:58pm dc pat:

  9:59pm mike east:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:00pm efd:

It's Josh's Nord, don't know the exact model.
Avatar 10:01pm dc pat:

  10:01pm mike east:

I will guess electro. Those things do everything

  10:06pm bob_ham:

One of the greatest rock front men of all time, no doubt about that.

  10:17pm johnk77:

Mike Sin-great engineering!
Mike East still taking notes on the right gear.
30 years ago I had a lot of fun mixing sound for one of Clem Burke's crazier post-Blondie groups, Chequered Past.
Clem obviously one of the greatest live drummers ever!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:17pm Stevel:

Wow. Yay, indeed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:19pm efd:

speaking of Chequered Past I'm working on getting Michael Des Barres on the show, hopefully later this year.
  10:21pm johnk77:

very cool efd!
Michael currently djing on SiriusXM
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:22pm efd:

(violating the don't-jinx-it rule there, but I feel good about it happening... sometime)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:22pm efd:

yep, filling in for Andrew Loog Oldham.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:23pm Stevel:

I met Gordon Spaeth after a show in Madison, '82, most likely. Nice guy.
Avatar 10:23pm dc pat:

  10:28pm jtkantor:

Hugo plays (with Clem) on two songs on the album
  10:29pm bob_ham:

YES. My article on Sonic Avenues is in the new issue of Alternative Press.
Avatar 10:29pm dc pat:

shoot. did not know that.
Avatar 10:30pm Joe B:

If it is wrong to like the Master Plan version of that more than the Fleshtones' version, I don't wanna be right!

Guten Abend EFD. Thanks, Adios!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:34pm efd:

Alles klar der komissar, dc pat.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:39pm efd:

I'm with you, Joe!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:40pm Julie:

  10:42pm bob_ham:

"Fotward"...nice little slip of the keyboard/nod to Mr. Scharpling's army, EFD.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:43pm efd:

Gonna need a bigger boat!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:44pm Stevel:

Is your leak coming through ceiling tiles? If so, watch out they don't get saturated and collapse onto electronics and such. (Better to take them down.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:46pm efd:

Thanks Steve... it's a recurring problem, coming through a light fixture. Will be addressed as part of a big building renovation sometime soonish.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:49pm Stevel:

Ah, water and electricity. The gift that keeps on giving.
