Hello @jake6573, @efd, and all y'all. It's always good to be here with you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:17pm efd:

hey everyone, always a pleasure to be with you on a Wednesday night! Live set from Wimps coming up at the bottom of the hour!
  9:22pm steveL:

It's possible that I have achieved the perfect state of consciousness for the upcoming Wimps set. Only time will tell.
  9:23pm JakeGould:

Just finished dinner and lots of other things… SO BRING IT!!!
  9:27pm steveL:

There you go!

Should be on setlist, great tune !

Saw Elo in MSG about 45 years ago with the spaceship !
Avatar 9:32pm Andrew S:

Im gonna pretend they are there
  9:34pm JakeGould:

Man, don’t bring me down EFD. :/
Avatar 9:35pm jake6573:

now depressed did not go tonight, was on the fence about going.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:36pm DC:

So glad to hear, ELO is a top quality world class act. Not many drummers can play up to Bev Bevan. And bless Kelly Groucutt
Avatar 9:38pm jake6573:

it os on to Glenn Hughes of Deep Purple, than Deep Purple at Jones Beach Labor day weekend. Hope Ian Gillan is in good vocal form Last few times seen em he was the weak link.
Avatar 9:41pm Andrew S:

oh Ian cant hit those high notes anymore. the last time i saw him was about 15 years ago and you know that awww aww aww part in Child of time? I couldnt even do it as a kid let alone at his age, i could feel his tonsild bleeding
  9:42pm JakeGould:

Here is Wimps Bandcamp: thesewimps.bandcamp.com
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:45pm efd:

There were definitely some sections/songs that Jeff Lynne can't hit anymore but there was a great backup singer doubling/taking the lead as needed - and on camera too, they weren't trying to cover it up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:46pm Jeezy:

Speaking of Pop Legends... I saw Glenn Tillbrook last night at City Winery! His teenage son opened (it was rough) and rejoined him and his pre-teen daughter playing keys for the encore!
His voice has held up excellently, it must be noted.
Avatar 9:47pm Andrew S:

nah dont cover it up, just the way it goes, do your best as you reach your limittiions, doesnt ruin it for me its a live show, im not playing the record
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:47pm efd:

totally agree, Andrew
Avatar 9:48pm jake6573:

@Andrew s, would be shocked if he even attempted it, worth price of admission for Steve Morse (IMO).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:48pm chris_in_space:

Wimps are great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:48pm efd:

backup singer also did a great job on the Roy Orbison part in the one Traveling Wilburys song they did last night
Avatar 9:49pm jake6573:

I'm going out on a limb and saying X the band is one of the wimps big influences
Avatar 9:49pm Andrew S:

haha well i am sure I attempted it many times as a younbg lad with headphones on, pity thr poor people around me
Avatar 9:50pm Andrew S:

what wilburys song did they do?
Avatar 9:51pm jake6573:

the wimps do rock !
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:52pm efd:

I was afraid someone would ask that as soon as I typed that! The one with the chorus about someone to lean on...??
  9:53pm steveL:

That bass!
  9:53pm JakeGould:

The Traveling Wilburys’s “Handle With Care?”
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:53pm efd:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:54pm efd:

that's it, Jake!
Avatar 9:54pm Andrew S:

yeah thats a nice track
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:54pm chris_in_space:

While we're talking oldies at the arenas gigs, I saw the Jeff Beck/Paul Rogers/Ann Wilson stop in Toronto a couple weeks ago. Missed Ann Wilson altogether. Paul Rogers's voice is near identical to the way everyone knows it. Jeff Beck is one of most singular guitarists on the planet. He's in great shape.
Avatar 9:55pm Andrew S:

the orbison chorus would be hard to substitute, it was pretty sweet. so is this set, sorry to distract from it
  9:55pm JakeGould:

Woo! I win a “No Prize!”
Avatar 9:55pm Andrew S:

listening intently :)
Avatar 9:56pm jake6573:

And the ballgame is over, Mets Win !
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:56pm DC:

hilarious lyric there "take your to-do list, send it to the moon."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:57pm efd:

Jeff Beck/Paul Rogers would be an intriguing show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:57pm efd:

I'm not the biggest Wilburys fan so maybe not the best judge, but I thought the singer who sany the Orbison parts nailed it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:58pm efd:

Wimps lyrics are A+ across the board
Avatar 9:58pm Andrew S:

no me neither i wasnt a fan when it came out but now when i hear a song here and there i like them
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:01pm Jeezy:

Although it is a tad slick, there's not a bad track on the first Willbury's album. And it's rife with humor, relaxed fun and great melodies. It's pretty great, actually.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:01pm Jeezy:

Meanwhile... Why did the Wimps cancel their BK show, EFD?!
Avatar 10:03pm jake6573:

Love the Wimps Humor !
Avatar 10:03pm Andrew S:

I liem it a lot better now than i did then. i thought iut was some lame nostalgia act at the time but it was some pretty brilliant dudes having fun in the studio
  10:03pm JakeGould:

They might have seen that they sell $7 toast in Brooklyn.
Avatar 10:03pm Andrew S:

i was going to say just ask them but i was still poretending that it is a live set ;) great stuff
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:03pm efd:

the one a couple of weeks ago? I didn't know they had, they recorded here that afternoon and were still planning on it when I saw them.
  10:04pm ?:

Dave from wimps here. we didn't cancel in Brooklyn. played at alphaville on 8/11.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:06pm efd:

hey Dave! Thanks for chiming in!
  10:07pm David RAMM:

No problem! I don't think any of us have really listened to X too much but I see the comparison. I listened to the Australian X a bunch.
Avatar 10:09pm Andrew S:

California band were the other X
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:10pm Ritchy O:

Great set thanks Wimps
Avatar 10:10pm Andrew S:

they were cool too, but like a rowboat compared to a destroyer. Plus Exene lost her marbles some years ago
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:11pm Jeezy:

Hahaha... Whoops! I'm confusing the Wussies with the Wimps!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:12pm Jeezy:

And @Jake the Avo toast we sell at my BK coffee shop is $6.75, not $7! :-P
  10:12pm JakeGould:

The Wads?
The Dorks?
The Dorkwads?
The Gaywads?
The Geeks?
  10:13pm JakeGould:

@Jeezy: Oh wow! A 25¢ savings! Wowowowowowowow!!!!!
Avatar 10:13pm jake6573:

Great Show EFD !
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:13pm efd:

I'm going to go on record right now as never having been an X fan.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:13pm Jeezy:

There is a .25 charge to use the bathroom, however...
Avatar 10:14pm jake6573:

they were darlings of the critics, suffice to say thought they were great
  10:15pm JakeGould:

@Jeezy: Wait… Seriously? 25¢ to use the bathroom?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:17pm efd:

I'm pretty sure he's joshing
Avatar 10:17pm Andrew S:

the guy from 7 seconds, kevin seconds? he was blogging about a tour he went on with exene a few years ago, she made him sleep in the car and shit, it was like reading les miserables, this was when she was touting some tea party stuff or something like that, i forgte cuz its not that important
  10:18pm JakeGould:

Sorry to get into a toast discussion on this playlist. Will keep that in check.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:18pm medson:

Good evening efd and everyone
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:20pm Jeezy:

It's an open forum, Jake... For anything and everything!
And actually our main Avo toast is indeed over $7. But I'm trying to get Ken to have Clay do some AM shows live from there!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:33pm melinda:

disco, yay
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:33pm diciassette:

Hey, who just called my favorite band "the other X"
  10:34pm JakeGould:

Clay should do a “Shame on You!” segment on $7 toast.
Avatar 10:38pm Andrew S:

no fighting it was just an opinion ;)
  10:42pm benedeb:

New Sunshine & the Rain! Hope they post some show dates this fall ahead of the new album.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:42pm melinda:

I wonder if another toast fad will replace the avocado. Cottage cheese toast?
Avatar 10:44pm Andrew S:

you have about 5 minutes to eat avocado between the time it is rock hard and rotten
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:47pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I think it's about time that orange marmalade toast makes a comeback.
Avatar 10:48pm Andrew S:

oh man i could go or that, its been ages
Avatar 10:49pm Andrew S:

i can taste it im buying some orange marmalde tomorrow
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:51pm melinda:

I love marmalade, special treat when i was a kid.
  10:58pm JakeGould:

Oh my god, what have I done to this discussion!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:59pm Blues Mandinga:

Hello from Barranquilla Colombia!
  11:02pm Robin Eisgrau:

Hey Evan! Charlie Sexton's hit was "Beats So Lonely." The Video was also shown on U68 here in NYC.
Avatar 11:04pm Andrew S:

i thought that was boz scaggs but then i was thinking no he must be dead. boz scaggs really? props to him that has to be like 50 years recording.
  11:06pm JakeGould:

Thanks EFD! Gotta split.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:12pm efd:

Thanks Robin, that's what I was thinking but I didn't trust my judgement!

Have a good night, Jake!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:12pm efd:

Andrew, I think the liner notes mention that exact duration.
Avatar 11:31pm On the Yazoo:

Hey!!! Someone put glitter on my toast!!
