That is some serious drumming like Led Zeppelin for a release by another band on Led Zeppelin’s label. And… HELLO!

Of course they're on Swan Song. Great start to the show!

Checking in for the Funk! Very bummed about not being able to attend the Fair this weekend. Always the best times at the benefit.
  9:08pm P-90:

...not to be confused with the short-lived "Schlong Song" label
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:09pm efd:

Hey everyone! Nice to see you all tonight!

...except maybe for you, P-90. ;)

evan you are KILLING IT. perfect uplifting soundtrack to the miserable chore of packing
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:22pm efd:

hiya V!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:22pm efd:

ohhh, that IS a miserable chore! Glad I can keep you company, Faye!
Avatar 9:24pm Jibolo Lucio:

In Prince-adjacent news, Wendy and Lisa say The Revolution will be reuniting and playing some shows soon. I hope that actually happens. It would help ease some of the pain 2016 has inflicted upon us.
  9:29pm bob_ham:

That was the same Incredible Lance Diamond that sang on the cover of "Bitch" that GGD gave to the No Alternative comp. #themoreyouknow
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:29pm Stevel:

In the office, alone, doing the work that prevented by work earlier today, I think.

Either way, I've got the right soundtrack.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:37pm tomasz.:

god i love this theme tune
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:38pm tomasz.:

also hi EFD, hi comment pals, this is a great soundtrack to me making a website by typing HTML into notepad.exe at nearly 3am as if it were 1998 or something
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:39pm tomasz.:

@Faye packing is bullshit, solidarity. i was supposed to be moving across town on Friday but there was some kind of inconvenient fire incident so that's on hold for now
Avatar 9:40pm geezerette:

so tonight you're gonna party like it's 1998...or something.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:41pm tomasz.:

ha! getting my pre-millennium tension on
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:41pm Stevel:

Still a big fan of Controversy. It really stood out, back in the day.
Avatar 9:43pm JakeGould:

@Stevel: Yes! I have had “Controversy” as an ear worm for the past few days. I even impulsively played it on my iPhone without headphones (!!!) on the subway when I needed a boost this morning. Nobody complained.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:47pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I was driving across town this afternoon and a local station played Prince's "When You Were Mine" and it was glorious.
Avatar 9:48pm JakeGould:

For a second I thought this track was “Lucretia, My Reflection” by Sisters of Mercy.
  9:48pm rob steffens:

pylon/gang of 4 was a good double bill
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:51pm Stevel:

Dark Blue is one of the few artists efd shares with William Berger.

The more you know.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:52pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...weird to think of when Prince 1st came out & he was considered like this sensationalistic Madonna-era perve or something...
  9:53pm rob steffens:

agreed that is sure is weird
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:53pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

(...rather than the hyper-capable genius...)
  9:54pm rob steffens:

i was reading he pleaded to billboard on how/where to be classified
  9:55pm rob steffens:

this jersey city band just kicks ass
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:57pm efd:

I agree, rob!
Avatar 9:59pm JakeGould:

Good thing we have Obamacare with all of the “its” being killed and all of the “ass” being kicked.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:08pm tomasz.:

1976...the Bicentennial. What a party that was!
Avatar 10:22pm JakeGould:

@ChrisM: You drunk?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:22pm Stevel:

Seriously drunk?
Avatar 10:22pm Chris M.:

@ChrisM: I knew that because you forgot punctuation. Just like a drunk would!
Avatar 10:23pm geezerette:

Hilarious,I've been posting here but listening to Ichiban Stream!
No wonder it went surreal on me!

Avatar 10:25pm JakeGould:

1976 was big deal to me as a kid when I was 8. I had all kinds of Bicentennial shit. So exciting!
Avatar 10:30pm Chris M.:

<3 this dude efd
  10:31pm P-90:

Bi-Cen in the A.M.? Count me in!
Avatar 10:32pm JakeGould:

@ChrisM: Avant Garde magazine was a cool 1970s art magazine and their 1976 cover for the bicentennial is great. www.codex99.com...
  10:38pm P-90:

Party like it's 1976!
On "Imaginary Hangover" with Chris M.

i don't want to take anything away fro the efd show but get ready for dancing around more than a feeling for three hours

All Boston, All the time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:53pm Kat in Chicago:

Peech Boys yesssss. Recently realized how incredibly good a year 1983 was for music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:53pm Kat in Chicago:

1976 was cool too tho
Avatar 10:57pm JakeGould:

Look at the Billboard chart for 1976. Nothing not good. en.wikipedia.org...
  10:57pm DJ_Guy:

Tfw EFD plays disco <3 <3
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:59pm tomasz.:

did a three-hour 1983 mix a couple of years ago to mark being 30 (my birth year, y'see) and it was indeed a primo year
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:59pm Kat in Chicago:

@Jake are you prepared to defend "Junk Food Junkie"? ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:02pm Kat in Chicago:

That Parquet Courts just now was very very good
Avatar 11:03pm JakeGould:

@Kat: Oh, I can’t defend that turd. I actually had a horrible hippie family member who would personally call me a “Junk Food Junkie” when I dared to spend my own pennies and nickels at corner vending machines. Screw that song!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:08pm efd:

yeah there's some good stuff on that new Parquet Courts album, not surprisingly!
  11:09pm Danne D:

Hi EFD :)
Hi everyone :)
Avatar 11:11pm JakeGould:

EFD: Nice that you let us know it “Avenue Z” is not named after that street in Brooklyn… I mean maybe the singing barber of Sheepshead Bay played a role in it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:15pm Kat in Chicago:

Hi Danne!
  11:16pm Danne D:

Kat :D
  11:24pm tomasz.:

i'm a junk food junkie
  11:27pm tomasz.:

Q: how do you make a duck into a soul singer? A: put it in the oven till its bill withers
  11:27pm tomasz.:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:29pm efd:

did you just make that up, tomasz?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:29pm efd:

(to be clear, I approve and I'm mad I didn't think of it myself)
  11:30pm tomasz.:

i'm afraid not. i'm surprised you haven't heard it before to be honest! i thought it was one of those corny old ones, ha ha
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:32pm efd:

I'm surprised too! I appreciate you keeping the tradition alive.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:33pm Kat in Chicago:

I never heard that joke before and I think it's hilarious
Avatar 11:34pm JakeGould:

@tomasz.: As someone who has discussed bad/good jokes here on the comments on WFMU for the past month or so, I have to say this “Bill Withers” joke is top notch! Kudos!
  11:35pm tomasz.:

wow, thanks guys! i will have to dig up some more daft old music jokes
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:36pm efd:

yes please do!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:44pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I see that Sheila B., Frangry & Michele, Billy Jam and Mr. Fine Wine are all doing live broadcasts from the record fair on Friday. Six hours of fun!
Avatar 11:51pm JakeGould:

My God, EFD… X-Ray Specs? Yes!
  11:57pm Danne D:

Thanks for all you do as usual EFD :) Hope to see you at the Record Fair :) Have a good night everyone!
