Options October 29, 2014: ULTIMATE PAINTING live set! And, it's the final week of WFMU's Silent Fundraiser and Mascot Contest

Listen to this show: | Add or read comments

It's the last week of WFMU's Silent Fundraiser and Mascot Contest, and I've got one more special show to remind you of how awesome WFMU is (and hopefully to motivate you to pledge).

It's been a stellar month so far on the show if I do say so myself! Let's review:

And tonight I've got a fantastic live set from Ultimate Painting!

I'm not suggesting that I should be rewarded for bringing you these great shows - I love being on the radio at WFMU every week and give my time gladly. But I AM suggesting that WFMU should be rewarded for being the kind of place where shows like these -- and shows not at all like these -- happen every day. The money you donate will help us finish outfitting Monty Hall, our new ground floor performance space, which in turn will enable us to bring you even more live shows and special events for your listening, viewing, and attending-in-person pleasure. It also helps us squeak through the next few months before we start our loud and noisy annual fundraising marathon.

Now, because this is a SILENT fundraiser I won't be talking about it much at all during my show. I'm depending on these words, and the show itself, to convince you to PLEASE PLEDGE!

If you're one of the 25-odd people who have already pledged, THANK YOU! Your support is greatly appreciated. If not,
P L E A S E   P L E D G E   N O W !

Good evening Holly, Mr. efd, others, no doubt.

Hi Holly! Maybe everyone's busy with the World Series?

hi efd and holly and stevel. so good to hear the wires brit punk sound kickin it off evan
  Wed. 10/29/14 9:10pm john:

World Series? Brooklyn playing?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 10/29/14 9:11pm Stevel:

Its not fair efd. I've not watched a bit this year, yet I am happy to hear you spin records tonight. Sorry you're missing the game. I feel just a bit guilty. It should pass.

Evening, jon

Hi Steve1! And jon & john!

This sounds a LOT like the Hoodoo Gurus (which is a good thing)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/29/14 9:12pm Alex of Chicago:

No way I'd want to hear Joe Buck's voice over this.
  Wed. 10/29/14 9:13pm john:

Or under it. Under ground, maybe.

@Alex - re Reivers, not Feelies. And hello!

Hi Loretta!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 10/29/14 9:14pm Stevel:

Feelies vocal sound like--with intended respect to all--a Lou-Reed-y voice.
Avatar Wed. 10/29/14 9:15pm herb.nyc:

Reivers? I thought Lloyd Cole, until Kim's "oooh"s came in. And ya know, maybe i saw them at Maxwell's, as Zeitgeist. (Maxwell's? That Irwin Chusid ripped into the new owners earlier)
  Wed. 10/29/14 9:17pm john:

I didn't hear Lloyd Cole (though we heard him solo acoustic at City Winery last Thursday), sounded to me more like The Church, only with a pulse.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/29/14 9:19pm Ike:

This is fan-freaking-tastic. And oh yeah, "Map Ref. 41° N 93° W" -- now that's MY kinda Starting With the 70s. Face-meltingly hot.

@ Holly ~ hi there!
Avatar Wed. 10/29/14 9:21pm Holly in NC:

Speaking of Lloyd Cole. last week's fabulolus show inspired me to dig a bit & check out his work with ROEDELIUS .. I know, who would've thunk?.

I believe I will comment on my fondness for Persian Claws for at least the 3rd time, possibly 4th.
Avatar Wed. 10/29/14 9:22pm Holly in NC:

And WHEN will PC's full lp be available??
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 10/29/14 9:24pm Stevel:

Agreed, re. Persian Claws. Nice opening set. Looking forward to the live set.
Avatar Wed. 10/29/14 9:26pm Holly in NC:

I'm beginning to think that efd is marking Lou Reed's death anniversary, in a very subtle way. If so, bravo, efd. Well, bravo regardless.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/29/14 9:26pm nixxon:

good stuff so far!
Avatar Wed. 10/29/14 9:26pm herb.nyc:

For awhile, i thought it was Persian CLAUS. And yay to Veronica Falls; i sharpie'd my own band tee when we saw their free show at south st seaport & showed them. I wore the shirt recently at Allo Darlin' (wuv them) glasslands

Ah...pure pop for us people.
Avatar Wed. 10/29/14 9:39pm Holly in NC:

Before I step aside to cook dinner & quietly enjoy this lovely live set, y'all know that efd = the opening track on Trouble in Mind's new Limiñanas singles/rarities comp, yes?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/29/14 9:41pm efd:

whoa that pic is a little large isn't it
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/29/14 9:45pm efd:

Holly, it's a crowning achievement of my radio career!

@efd :-)

This live set is GREAT. Want this lp.

Kudos to Mike Sin. The mix is great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/29/14 9:49pm efd:

we're so lucky to have such a great group of engineers here at WFMU -- who all volunteer their time, I might add!
Avatar Wed. 10/29/14 9:49pm TroubleInMind:

Sounds great Evan!! Nice job Mike!
Avatar Wed. 10/29/14 9:51pm Holly in NC:

Hi @TiM! You rock!
Avatar Wed. 10/29/14 9:52pm TroubleInMind:

aw shucks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/29/14 9:52pm efd:

Hey, speaking of live music and engineers and whatnot -- this is my last show of WFMU's Silent Fundraiser and I'm just $120 away from my goal! We're raising money to finish outfitting our new live performance space so we can bring you even more great live sets like this one.

So far about 25 people have pledged to my show this month - I'd love to get that number up to 30 tonight! Click the blue pledge button in that white box up there on the left to show your support.

Thank you!

Huh, EFD is opening track on a record? It's like "starting with EFD, which is pretty much what we always do..."
  Wed. 10/29/14 10:00pm Tommy:

EFD . I'm diggin this, big time. What a great band
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/29/14 10:02pm efd:

Good to hear Tommy! Yeah, they're fantastic!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/29/14 10:03pm efd:

$70 to go before the dog wags and the cow... lows, or whatever it does. Who's going to put the show over the top?
Avatar Wed. 10/29/14 10:03pm Holly in NC:

No offense to Ultimate Painting band members' earlier bands, but this is SOOOO much more to my personal taste, floored.

Of course I will be playing Veronica Falls' 'Found Love in Graveyard' (og version) on Friday, because that is a great song ;-)
Avatar Wed. 10/29/14 10:05pm Holly in NC:

@efd, my monthly station pledge is all I can do, I feel like shite :-( I hope you know I would if I could.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/29/14 10:06pm efd:

of course Holly! You and everyone who's pledged already are greatly appreciated!

amazing show tonite efd. the u p session killed
Avatar Wed. 10/29/14 10:55pm Holly in NC:

ah, TSOL. Huge fan of 2 songs back in the day - "Word Is" (which I still like), and, er, "Code Blue" because it's fun to scream "I wanna, I wanna f**k the dead" when you're a rebellious teenager. Which is why I never clutched pearls over any rap lyrics ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 10/29/14 10:56pm Stevel:

I THOUGHT the Briefs sounded like Cute Lepers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/29/14 11:03pm efd:

I'm glad I mentioned it then!

@Jon, thanks, glad you're enjoying it!

hey only $50 to get to the goal!
Avatar Wed. 10/29/14 11:24pm herb.nyc:

TSOL has great cd called "Life, Liberty & the Pursuit of Free Downloads", and singer Jack Grisham wrote weird true(?) book, and he is kinda like the, well, el diablo! And he ran for gov in calif, the year Arnold won.

I somehow missed the pre-set tracks, but that "Mazes" that you played is not the same Mazes... could be the U.S.A. Mazes?... def not the one with Jack in it.
Avatar Thu. 10/30/14 1:00pm Aharon:

Another great show! Good to confirm the existence of a few bands I saw at CMJ. Have you ever listened to the Brooklyn band Honduras, who were on a bill with the #1s? Good on record, great live.
