  9:04pm Zootopia:

what is post punk? the stuff that wasn't considered new wave?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:06pm medson:

Good evening efd and every one
  9:06pm Steve:

It's Punk and New Wave that whomever came up with the title/term Post-Punk didn't want to call the bands/artists Punk or New Wave
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:08pm ultradamno:

I always liked how many things that existed simultaneously with Punk get to be Post-Punk.
  9:10pm Zootopia:

Is London Calling considered Post Punk? If so how about Sandinista?
  9:11pm Steve:

I consider it Punk and New Wave, Zootopia. The Clash were one of the original Punk bands
  9:12pm Zootopia:

Yes but the Clash evolved beyond punk.
  9:12pm Zootopia:

Ah, steve I see what you are saying.
  9:13pm Steve:

  9:13pm Zootopia:

I think communication breakdown was the first punk song
  9:13pm Steve:

both are great classic Clash albums
  9:14pm P-90:

I may name my next cat “Destiny Quibble.” No matter what breed she is.
  9:14pm Steve:

or 'Helter Skelter' by The Beatles was before that ?!
  9:15pm Zootopia:

Sandinista Was the best. I remember going to the record store in 1980 with Christmas money and buying London Calling, Sandinista and Black Market Clash for twenty bucks and getting change enough to buy a issue of Rolling Stone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:16pm ultradamno:

I'd say "Honey Hush" by Johnny Burnette.
  9:18pm Steve:

We must've done the same thing, Zootopia. I remember buying that Triple Record Set, Sandinista I think in Nov. 1980 when it was first released. I loved it then and now. It's my fave Clash album ! You got a great deal there with what you bought back then.
Avatar 9:20pm RobinSays:

Is Cee Farrow a current artist or from the early `80s?Either way,he's really got something...
Avatar 9:20pm JakeGould:

This show is always a nice tribute.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:21pm Aitch:

Cee Farrow never heard of. Likes his Bauhaus, not such a bad thing. More book-learnin' EFD
  9:23pm Zootopia:

I bought London Calling Used for 4.00 Sandinista for 8.98 and Black Market Clash for 3.98 in a used record store across the street from Broward Community College in Davie Florida. I rode my bike. I think the rolling stone had springsteen on ice skates.
  9:24pm Zootopia:

Either that or tom petty tearing up a dollar bill
  9:24pm Steve:

Good going and great deals all around
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:24pm Bootsie:

Whoa, I'd have sworn that Cee Farrow song was a Soft Cell track I'd not heard before.

D'uh -- your playlist just answered my question. Loving your show as per usual Evan.

@Zootopia we have something in commen, we both are huge DISNEY fans!! that counts for something, right??

And the difference between Billy Joel and Eddie Money is Eddie $$$ had joy and hope in his songs.
  9:43pm johnzo:

they play this song at work all the time... or I should say WOMC "nobody plays more 80's!!" plays it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:44pm medson:

@efd You always do great tribute shows
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:46pm efd:

thanks meds! Sorry to hear it was your last day on Wake today. Other responsibilities intruding, I assume?

Yeah work schedule has made it near impossible.
It was a great experience to say the least

  10:05pm Jesse G:

Thanks for acknowledging the unlike-ability of Billy Joel
  10:10pm P-90:

I know what you mean about Tom Petty’s rise in the age of Punk/New Wave, I’ve never forgotten hearing the very beginning of “American Girl” on the radio for the first time when it was just released. My instant thought was “Oh, what’s this, a new Nick Lowe song...?”
  10:15pm P-90:

For me, this may be the quintessential Eddie track.
  10:16pm Figgsrock:

I believe “Think I’m In Love” is one of the best Top 40 hits of the 1980s. Just pop perfection.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:16pm Bootsie:

This is MY fave Eddie Money tune!
  10:16pm Jesse G:

This is a solid Money track
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:17pm medson:

I remember getting this album on cassette
  10:18pm Steve:

The title song 'No Control' is excellent and should've been a big hitt, too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:18pm Bootsie:

Another good one!
  10:21pm Carmichael:

Heya Evan, I knew this tribute was coming ....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:21pm efd:

I was gonna do it two weeks ago and then Ric Ocasek went and died on me!
  10:22pm Steve:

Any Cars tribute show coming up, EFD ??
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:23pm efd:

@Steve you missed it! I did a whole Cars show two weeks ago, check the archives.
  10:25pm johnzo:

JakeGould I can see why they weren't thrilled about that poster haha
  10:25pm P-90:

Poor Eddie had to go and check out the same week as Ocasec, who promptly nabbed all the attention. Which is sort of fitting, Eddie always had his share of good breaks and bad ones in the rock star business.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:28pm Barkevious Shabazz:

I'm no fan of Mr. Money, but I have to say, Gimme Some Water is nigh unstoppable.
  10:29pm P-90:

You got it @efd, Eddie’s stuff was indeed often innocently dumb and innocently sweet and endearing at the same time. You could call that his signature move..
  10:29pm Zootopia:

I don't care if it's hip or not, Eddie Money's first album was solid.
  10:30pm Zootopia:

gimme some water was filler in the typical weak second album.
  10:31pm Zootopia:

REO Speedwagon followed hi infidelity with the terrible Good Trouble
  10:32pm Zootopia:

the third song on the first side of good trouble is dumber than gimme some water
Avatar 10:32pm Roberto:

OMG...I had not heard about Kim Shattuck. Crap.
  10:33pm antonio:

Woo the Bedazzler
Avatar 10:34pm Roberto:

Wow, I didn't know she was ill. Gdammit.
  10:34pm Steve:

Had no idea Kim S. had been ill ? Very shocking to hear that she's gone.
  10:34pm johnk77:

hard to remember how powerful
bill graham was in 70s/80s
perhaps better as a promoter
than a manager
at that time
rip kim:<
she rocked
  10:35pm johnzo:

hey man maybe you could check out my band the abominable catz cause... idk
we're new
new band woo
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:35pm timurf:

saw posts on FB but waited to hear it 'official' on WFMU. my eyes are watery : (
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:37pm medson:

I was bummed to hear of Kims passing earlier tonight.
Avatar 10:38pm Roberto:

Guess I'll spring for the latest album. I had no idea it would be her last.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:41pm Mike Sin:

Your show tonight is a tribute to a variety of folks that you've had different "relationships" with... something we all can relate to... it actually brings us together on some level... it's a bittersweet relationship I have with WFMU -- the news of folks passing who we collectively "knew" depresses me, but WFMU is the first place i turn to during times like this.

She looked young for 56
  10:44pm PIUS:

Really great guitar tone - what a voice, iconic!
  10:48pm spodiodi:

sad news. damn
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:50pm Alex of Chicago:

just got home. thanks for doing a set for kim, efd. i will listen to the full program tomorrow
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:53pm medson:

Thanks for another great show efd, catch the rest on the archives.
  11:02pm sufferwords:

Peace to Kim, a warrior here in Los Angeles forever- per earlier discussion vis a vis what is punk? post punk etc. Everyone confuses punk with a style which it never was, it became a style when bands began to mimic the iconoclasts who adhered to not a musical style but an uncompromising spirit of creativity. Everything the Clash did was punk because they didn’t give a fuck, anyone remember the controversy surrounding Sandinista? A three record set that the label wanted to charge a commensurate price, Clash said fuck that, charge a single album price for it. The Clash fucked themselves for years doing a solid for their fans, punk? oh hell yes!
  11:02pm Zootopia:

I completely missed the muffs. IDKW. Perhaps I was too much into the whole Grunge scene. Maybe I wasn't reading the right magazines...Rolling Stone and Spin at the time.
  11:04pm Zootopia:

I was reading CMJ too.
Avatar 11:12pm Hoboken Jack:

Did someone mention THE BEDAZZLER?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:12pm efd:

  11:14pm Stuart:

I missed the Muffs too, not Eddie Money. RIP Tributes are great, playing great tunes anytime is too.
  11:17pm Steve:

Hey EFD, has anyone noted the 40th Anniversary of the great Talking Heads album, 'Fear of Music' for this year ?
Avatar 11:18pm Hoboken Jack:

Was weird, when the Muffs first were on my radar, I was a recent college radio grad and didn't trust anything released on a major label. So it took years before I caught on to them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:22pm efd:

@Steve, not that I'm aware of
  11:23pm Steve:

Might be good to do one before the years out ?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:24pm efd:

I will consider it!
  11:30pm Zootopia:

Listening to these Muff tracks, I would have liked them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:36pm efd:

they were definitely written up in CMJ at the time, but sometimes it's hard to tell from a written review if something is worth checking out.
  11:37pm BH:

which interview would be more fun, interviewing Debbie Harry about Country Music or Ken Burns about Blondie/New Wave?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:38pm efd:

I'm gonna say interviewing Debbie Harry without giving it very much thought at all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:45pm Blues Mandinga:

  11:48pm van chinski:

Your show got me into Ladytron a few years ago, thanks for that.
