The general contractor working on the house I'm staying at admired my WFMU bumper stickers today..originally from nyc, he's a fan of the station (and Tom's too ;-)). Might tune in tonight!

Hi all! Stay cool! Hope for less humidity!

Hey! I love Jeff Wayne's 'War of the Worlds'...

Wow, just joined and I've already missed Nick Gilder!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:42pm efd:

I'm not pussyfooting around over here, Michael! Glad to have you here in real time today!

Real Numbers sound nice while I'm out grocery shopping.

nice set, guys! Also looking forward to Marcy P. - saw them a lot back in the '90s, GF and I were fans. "Secret Squirrel .. he's a trickster."

What's up? The Cubs came bck from down 5-0 against the reds, posting the winning run with Aroldis Chapman on the mound. THAT'S what's up/

Hi Holly! Howzit?
Avatar 10:16pm coelacanth:

greetings efd and Funky Folk

...coming in right at that chord progression i thought it was "needles and pins"...which would be okay!
Avatar 10:17pm coelacanth:

(but that eyelids song was beyond okay!)
Avatar 10:19pm Holly in NC:

'zit's great, now that efd's playing The Dream Syndicate! god I love this lp.

@efd - Bonus tracks worth a (second) repurchase?
  10:20pm Marjorie Courtenay-Latimer:

Whose derivative?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:23pm Uncle Michael:

this ball business is the shiz
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:27pm Uncle Michael:

That's some cover.
Avatar 10:27pm coelacanth:

just your warning is cracking me up!
...but now i have to look it up!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:30pm Stevel:

Missing Dream Syndicate=1 point off. Off to punish myself.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:30pm efd:

don't say I didn't warn you, coelacanth!

boooo Stevel!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:33pm Stevel:

OK, I'm back.

Hey Holly, Uncle Michael, Joe B, efd and all y'all. Tuning into the boards always makes me smile.
  10:33pm joe!:

NSFW, yup. Sheepish smile when you buy that record, or just sunglasses and a stone face? Yikes.

Avatar 10:37pm Holly in NC:

Where is this record cover? I am not finding anything "interesting".

3 cheers for Starbreaker!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:38pm Uncle Michael:

EFD, is that copy of the Ball single one of the limited edition of 300?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:38pm Uncle Michael:

You've been warned.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:40pm efd:

I didn't notice anything about a limited edition, and frankly I don't think I want to check that closely. But maybe?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:44pm Stevel:

That's a very complex piece of art. Contradictory, yet to the point. Or something.
Avatar 10:44pm coelacanth:

okay THAT'S interesting!
(i wasn't coming up with anything either.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:44pm Stevel:

...and thank you, UM. You always come through.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:45pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...' 7" ' doesn't necessarily help w/ a websearch, either...yes, interestingly, no balls...
Avatar 10:46pm Holly in NC:

@UM - Thank you. I was expected something goatse level given the hype! Now that DO NOT GOOGLE.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:46pm Uncle Michael:

The honor is to serve.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:47pm Stevel:

Where is Ball from? Are they a noun or a verb? So many quesitons (legit trippy video for that song.

RRN63: Precisely!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:47pm Uncle Michael:

They're Swedes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:48pm Stevel:

"Limited edition 300 copies. Includes an insert"

big chair, as played a couple weeks ago, has become a breakout hit at our house
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:52pm Uncle Michael:

I must close my eyes. They're watery due to an unfortunate summer cold.

Thank you for the music, Evan.
  10:53pm marc:

No dropping the disco ball I hope
Avatar 10:54pm coelacanth:

oh Holly! don't do that to people!
someone blessed me with that image as i emerged from the shower once. i was afraid to use my computer for a long time!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:03pm efd:

hey rsj, glad that song stuck with you! It's catchy like that.
  11:10pm joe!:

OK, so check out a version of The Sound of Summer by Hungary's Neoton Familia. Kinda cable-access ABBA. Cover art for their song Oh Happy Day also worth a look. I'm taking an extra Xanax and going to bed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:11pm efd:

I have that version too, joe! Played it a few years ago, but it's due for another spin.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:12pm efd:

  11:14pm joe!:

Gotta love a band that started out by finishing 2nd in a 2 band contest. God love 'em, probably beat most career options in Soviet-era Hungary.

HI Holly :)

Hello everybody.

you've got to take your victories where you can find them, Danne.
Avatar 11:36pm Holly in NC:

Hi Danne!

I am fading fast, if I crash before midnight thanks for a great show efd!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:37pm Īke:

I'm really enjoying the synth-y turn this show has taken.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:37pm efd:

my pleasure as always, Holly!
  11:42pm Michael from the Left Coast:

Pronunciation was fine and correct
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:43pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Take care, Holly!
  11:44pm Michael from the Left Coast:

Actually your pronunciation was the americanization--the actual pronunciation is the from the throat "cha" as in Chutzpah for Charigim
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:49pm efd:

ah, noted. Thanks Michael!
  11:50pm Michael from the Left Coast:

Like CHanukah. Same thing--although the way it is spelled in English it is hard to tell
Avatar 11:50pm JakeGould:

Please no more discussion of the guttural “ch”.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:51pm Stevel:

Killer production on Sleaford Mods. Putting them on my to-see list.

Hi Ja-ch!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:51pm efd:

but I was just about to mention CHallah!
Avatar 11:53pm JakeGould:

@efd: You can mention Challah. I’m fine with that and who am I to say on your show? But pronunciation of the guttural “ch” is so pedantic.
Avatar 11:54pm JakeGould:

Just keep rockin’!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:55pm Stevel:

Gorilla Angreb is my new jam.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:55pm Ike:

Am I hallucinating or is there a bit of "Holiday in Cambodia" on this one?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:56pm Stevel:

Ike: I'll side with a breath or two of it.
Avatar 11:56pm JakeGould:

@Ike: Somewhat “Holiday in Cambodia”-ish.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:57pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- Thx for another great one efd. Appreciated.
Avatar 11:57pm Danne D:

Thanks for a great show as always Evan :)
Have a good night everyone :)
Take care sleepy Holly :)
Avatar 11:57pm JakeGould:

@Stevel: When you pronounce “Gorilla Angreb,” make sure you roll the “gre” so it’s like “Gorilla AngKrCHeb.”
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:59pm efd:

for the record I've don't think I've ever shied away from pedantry when it comes to pronunciation on this show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:59pm Stevel:

Duly noted (avoiding heavy consonants.)
Avatar 11:59pm JakeGould:

@efd: “Pedantry” is a pretty decent band. At least their first 2 albums.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:59pm Stevel:

...and yer killin' me, Jake.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:00am Stevel:

Pederasty, not such a well-liked outfit.

Great show.
Avatar 12:00am coelacanth:

Ike i heard that too.

Thanks Evan
