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.

One of the best covers of this, just under Beefheart and just above L4D

I dare say I may see the direction of this set. Time will tell.

James White! Nice! I bought this last year at Rock Fantasy based on the album cover alone. Pretty cool album.

Evan. Don't ask me why this hit me just now. Do you know how many years you've been spinning records? I mean, I know you know, but wow, jeez.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:27pm Stevel:

This set could keep running through Gang of Four, AuPairs, Nots...

Evan! what's the answer to #12 across?

Now all NYC clubs seem to be filled with comedy, improv and lectures.

NYC pre-Internet still had a centralized Downtown. Nowadays there is technically a “Downtown” but now it’s all tourist places.
Avatar 9:40pm RabidRabbit:

@JIMD2019 Respect for the avatar! Bunnies represent! :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:41pm Stevel:

Yes, this! Audience would stay for wildly different acts! I truly miss that sort of variety.
Avatar 9:41pm JakeGould:

What he just said about hardcore bands is what I think about improv comedy shows.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:44pm ultradamno:

Gang of Four, Pere Ubu, Tetras at Hammersmith Palais images.sk-static.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:47pm Stevel:

JakeGould: I get it. Its often a real waste of talent. Bring back the variety show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:49pm Stevel:

ultradamno: That show cost 3 pounds! Did they say when that was?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:50pm ultradamno:

According to this 81 www.rocksbackpages.com...
Avatar 9:51pm JakeGould:

Perhaps 1981? www.setlist.fm...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:55pm Stevel:

Never saw any of that list. Missed Gang of Four if they came to Madison. Where is my time machine?!?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:58pm efd:

hey everyone! Thanks for tuning in tonight, glad to see you here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:03pm Stevel:

Wondering who is who on the record jacket for Too Many Creeps/You Can't be Funky (possibly the best 7" ever).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:15pm ultradamno:

I remember first hearing it (Creeps) at Second Time Around (Indpls record store) as a mere pre-teen. Arresting.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:17pm Stevel:

This is definitely a #1 hit!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:17pm ultradamno:

Though Snakes Crawl really should be just as big a hit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:18pm jmd:

Terrific show!
