Every show starts with the ’70s! We’ll rediscover forgotten rockers, revisit unfairly maligned disco beats and replay power-pop favorites. Next: plenty of new releases, occasional live bands and more. Don’t let the nickname confuse you.

Wednesdays 9pm - Midnight (EDT) | On WFMU (Info) | 91.1, 90.1, 91.9 FM & wfmu.org

The 80's and 70's are starting to merge in my brain

1980 ,, black and blue,,,
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:39pm efd:

the other Spider I was thinking of had a single reissued by Sing Sing about 5 or 6 years ago... more hard rock sounding, a better fit with Black Sabbath I think.
  9:42pm Zydeco Revelator:

Lizard teeth rocks!!
  9:47pm johnk77:

thanks for the LRB @efd
although they were extremely
nice, talented musicians
and great singers
their live shows were
less than the sum
of the parts:<

We've entered a new world with this midnight mines track
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:49pm efd:

ha, glad you enjoyed it john! I can't say I'm surprised that they didn't put on a compelling live show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:50pm efd:

@Quasi a world we can only visit for a few minutes at a time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:51pm Quasi Mojo:

Yes, and not on a school night
Avatar 10:02pm Roberto:

Yeahhh I just might have to pick up that Paul Williams tribute CD I tell you what.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:10pm Mike Sin:

If I were listening to this type of show during the early '80s, I'd have paper and pen in hand ready to jot down some notes on cool new bands I'm hearing.. But, because it's 2018, I have an iPhone "note" open and at the ready.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:17pm Quasi Mojo:

@Mike I still find those hand scrawled notes in my stuff from time to time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:27pm Quasi Mojo:

All this stuff is so good, EFD.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:29pm efd:

thanks Quasi, glad you're enjoying it!
@Mike, I have an iPhone note open myself with a list of all the new stuff I want to try to get to in tonight's show!

Mike Sin: Tonight, my kid was asking about what new music I was listening to. I said I just kept listening to the radio, which kept bringing me new bands, and/or stuff I'd never heard before. I get that from you, efd and others here on WFMU.
  10:53pm Bklyn Listener:

well said!!!
Avatar 10:53pm Andrew S:

Can't join in the conversation much these days but just checking in to say how much I'm digging tonight's music - plenty of adds to my wants/shopping list. Also, I could've sworn I heard some guy pronounce Brisbane correctly!
