Hey everyone, thanks for tuning in tonight, and thanks to those of you who have commented for commenting!

I haven't heard this song in ages though, and it's bringing me out of my fog.

Forgot all about this Cornwell gem.
Avatar 9:24pm Bianconeri:

I have no idea how the Stranglers do without him.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:26pm efd:

I hear you, Bianconeri, not to mention only having Jet Black part-time.
  9:28pm ?:

evan, you make wednesdays real special for all of us!
Avatar 9:29pm Bianconeri:

I once heard a band playing in a club from a block away, commented on how the bass sounded like the Stranglers and discovered that JJ was, indeed, playing bass for Freedy Johnston that night!
Avatar 9:29pm 1010w:

this song is amazingly japanese

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:48pm steve:

i get home from my last trip of the season to the Asbury Park pinball museum, listen to no music all day, turn on the radio and immediately hear Sound of Summer. its like the rolling the end credits to the movie of my summer.

cheri I'm glad you enjoyed that show but I think you probably should have done more things this summer.
  9:53pm jon:

got here just in time to hear starbreaker do e.o.s. thanks for digging that up evan!
  9:54pm ?:

efd, this summer was fun for me also,, I did go to the beach.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:55pm efd:

It's never much of a dig, jon!
Avatar 9:57pm Holly in NC:

So who are these Neon folks?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:58pm efd:

Tommy James affiliated (perhaps obviously), that's all I know!
  10:01pm john:

Hey Evan…checking in a bit late (and from Northern New England,yet, whither we have repaired for a few days semi-off the grid), but something of a discombobulated week. Great show…really glad to be here!
Avatar 10:03pm Holly in NC:

@john - I hope you are enjoying water/front of some nature, also lobsters and clams & tomatoes & corn oh my! ;-)
  10:04pm john:

@holly, there is indeed a lake at the end of the lawn, and crustaceans and tomatoes were prime on the menu at dinner tonight. Thanks for asking!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:05pm Uncle Michael:

Greetings efd comment participants.

I'm a Cubs fan. That's enough fantasy for one man.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:08pm efd:

Hi john, glad to see you here. I'm glad to were able to get away after all, even if not to your original destination.
  10:08pm ?:

well evan, i'm afraid I have to check out now but i'll still be tuned in and as always thnx for your company. catch you on the rebound!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:08pm Ike:

One of these comments within the past 20 minutes is the best comment of the week. Kudos.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:09pm efd:

touché, UM
  10:09pm ?:

happy labor day all.
  10:09pm john:

Thanks (and thanks for checking in over the last few days)…we're visiting friends in Northern Vermont, which was the plan for this week all along, just with one guest fewer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:11pm efd:

For some reason I'd thought you were heading to Long Island, but I was obviously confused.
  10:14pm ?:

it was really fun hanging out with you efd, thanx so much.
  10:15pm john:

no, no, you were absolutely right, sorry. Last weekend was meant to be Strong Island, though of course we ended up elsewhere. The plan for this week was to head to the great white north.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:17pm efd:

ah, got it! Glad we got that settled! :)
Avatar 10:17pm Holly in NC:

Just watched the Both video, would never have recognized Susanna Hoffs - but always great to see her!
  10:21pm john:

For the record, to fill out the tour of the outlying reaches of Red Sox Nation, Becky went to Rhode Island last week. Just the LI weekend that turned into something other, and the reduced head count here now.
Avatar 10:22pm Loretta:

Hi Evan & fellow listners... just got back from a 2 day drive from FL to NY.. & it's just as hot here!! lol! layin' back now enjoying the show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:22pm Uncle Michael:

Susanna Hoffs is in the Both video?
Avatar 10:29pm Holly in NC:

@UM - she is the guitar player who invites Aimee & Ted up to join in
Avatar 10:30pm Holly in NC:

Hi Loretta! Awful drive, glad you're home!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:32pm Uncle Michael:

Very cool.

(One of these things rocks.)
  10:35pm Ignore Function:

Apache Dropout are great and nice guys, too.
Avatar 10:36pm Holly in NC:

Aw, Steve1, there s/b option 3 for your pup :-)
Avatar 10:38pm Loretta:

hiya Holly! you're right.. a hell drive. I actually stayed in NC, Lumberton I think.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:40pm Stevel:

Aw, we're OK, our governor is a cretin, but other than that...
  10:40pm ?:

evan, please forgive me but will you still have the comment board up on September 10th?
  10:41pm courtneynoir:

Heh heh
M.O.B. rules
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:41pm Stevel:

...and yes, the dog's cuteness is the reason she's still alive.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:41pm efd:

You're not alone in that regard, Stevel.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:42pm efd:

Cheri, I don't understand why you're not filling in your name.
Avatar 10:44pm Holly in NC:

@Loretta, not much good in Lumberton, except for the people. Irks me that the Lumbees continue NOT to recognized as a valid tribe, not least because a certain other unnamed tribe does not wanting to share benefits. Also Lumbees have an insanely high rate of heart disease, a steady stream is always incoming to Duke Heart Center :-(

@efd, I quite liked m.o.b. and you know I LOVE the Cyclones! :-)
  10:46pm cheri:

evan you're right, everyone knows me by now.
Avatar 10:46pm Holly in NC:

I'll raise all y'all bad governor, and I WILL WIN.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:47pm Stevel:

This governor contest is not going to be that much fun, is it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:47pm Uncle Michael:

NFW, Holly...you won't beat me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:48pm efd:

oh boy, I think Uncle Michael is right.
Avatar 10:48pm Holly in NC:

@UM - Ugh. You may be right.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:49pm Uncle Michael:

  10:49pm cheri:

well good night everybody, and happy labor day!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:50pm Uncle Michael:

night cheri
Avatar 10:53pm Holly in NC:

I guess we have no Texan listeners to join our competition? Or Louisianians? Or Arizonians? Or...

sigh, indeed, UM, sigh.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:55pm Stevel:

Yea! UM wins! (Why is he crying?)
  Swag For Life Member 10:56pm Lonely Planet Boy:

Enjoying the show. Many fun 7"ers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:58pm efd:

thanks LPB!
  11:00pm cheri:

thnx evan.
  11:01pm Tom in Red Hook:

I want to purchase a cd of music that is only available on cd, not available online so something special in either 20c new classical or rock. Any thoughts of where I can preview (but not listen) to such a list. Once I select a title I'd like to order from othermusic in nyc or another local shop. Any thoughts please?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:05pm fleep:

Answer hazy ask again later.
Avatar 11:07pm Holly in NC:

@Tom - Forced Exposure & Volcanic Tongue offer written reviews of many esoteric lps/cds, with no soundclips, if that's what you're looking for.. many of their offerings not available through regular legal or illegal online sources. If I weren't tuckered I could think of other sources, let me sleep on it. Feeding Tube also, but much of their stuff tends to get uploaded illegally fairly quickly.
Avatar 11:08pm Holly in NC:

@fleep :-)
Avatar 11:09pm Holly in NC:

Personally I like soundclips. Thank you Aquarius & Permanent, among others.
Avatar 11:10pm Holly in NC:

Oh, and Juno. Juno rocks.
Avatar 11:11pm Holly in NC:

Also Weirdo, Boomkat...must stop! (all of these folks DO offer soundclips)
  11:12pm Lonely Planet Boy:

Subscribe to other music's weekly email updates, Tom. It has samples of New releases.
  11:14pm cheri:

evan may I add that you'll be terribly missed next week..
  11:15pm Tom in Red Hook:

Thanks Holly and LPB
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:15pm Uncle Michael:

Off to cry myself to sleep...and listen to the rest of the show. Good times!

Thanks, Evan.

Night all.

@Tom - also NO soundclips - Roots & Rhythm, and Dusty Groove

oo yeah, i can get into this
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:22pm fleep:

white hills already starred, previous me had good taste
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:22pm Uncle Michael:

One last thing...if you like this White Hills...and I *do*, check out the Earthless meets Heavy Blanket album. That is all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:23pm steve:

i will take you up on that UM, thanks
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:23pm efd:

saw that in the new bin earlier, UM, but didn't have a chance to check it out. I've heard some Earthless stuff I liked so it'll be on my list when I return to Jersey City.
  11:27pm cheri:

efd this has been one hell of a show. see you in two weeks!
Avatar 11:28pm JakeGould:

Hey! Hey! Hey! Listening to this while dealing with… Horsefeathers. Excellent start. Better end.
Avatar 11:33pm northguineahills:

Soft walls, I like!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:35pm Stevel:

Soft Walls and Trouble in Mind, I also like.
  11:36pm Carmichael:

I missed pretty much everything. Archives for me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:37pm Stevel:

This could fade so easily into a Harry Harrison segment. (that's a good thing)

Not doing so is also a good thing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:38pm efd:

I like the way you think, Stevel!

It just wasn't the way I was thinking just now. :)
  11:39pm Holly:

Another thumb up for Soft Wall.
  11:54pm Holly:

Thank you efd. Have a great night everyone!
