Painted Doll
Wednesday, April 4th, 2018, 9pm - Midnight
on The Evan "Funk" Davies Show

Painted Doll is a new band formed by WFMU’s own Dave Hill (also of Valley Lodge, Witch Taint, Cobra Verde, and others)and metal legend Chris Reifert (Autopsy, Abscess, and other others). The band came together after Chris and Dave crossed paths in San Antonio a couple of years ago, went to a Goblin show together, and started trading their favorite obscure Dutch and UK psych tunes from the '60s and '70s. They ended up recording their self-titled album right here in New Jersey, and it's just been released on the Tee Pee label. The album is full of catchy rock hooks, drawing comparisons to Blue Öyster Cult, Nazareth, and the 13th Floor Elevators, among others. They cap off a quick tour of the Northeast with a visit to the WFMU studios, so tune in to the Evan "Funk" Davies Show Wednesday night, April 4, to hear them play live!

The Evan "Funk" Davies Show

Hailing from the little-known 21st Arrondissement, oddly located in Brooklyn, this bête à sept têtes will bring you a frisson of je ne sais quoi with their self-described blend of The Kinks meets Serge Gainsbourg meets The Shirelles meets The New York Dolls. The band is preparing to release their ninth record, She is Tossed by the Waves But Does Not Sink (a translation of Paris's Latin motto) in March, and they joue en live (that means play live, you franco-dummy) on February 16 at Bar Chord in Ditmas Park, Brooklyn.

Plus... Get your CB ears on! An all-star cast led by Jon Hamm takes to the highway in Stinker Lets Loose, an immersive audiobook adventure by best-selling author Mike Sacks. Based on the supposed novelization of a forgotten 1970s cult trucker movie, Stinker pack a comedic punch with Rhea Seehornm Paul F. Tompkins and Andy Richter joining Hamm.
