Yeah, @chris -- Bruno knocked it out of the park, didn't he?

He did @mariano, he really did. Not the same vibe as our man @efd, but he did. Really great to be here with y'all on this fine, hot AF Wednesday night in Toronto.

Very 60s sounding, even for something from '75!
Avatar Wed. 8/10/16 9:25pm mariano:

Oh wait... never mind, looking at the year from the Trooper song, whoops!
Avatar Wed. 8/10/16 9:26pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...from 60s to 70s - Heauhhhhhveeeey mahn...
Avatar Wed. 8/10/16 9:27pm efd:

yeah, 1970 is still basically the 60's!

Ahh,, the days when men were men and wah-wah oedals were wah-wah pedals...

No way, efd -- no slight on you at all, you're both great!
Avatar Wed. 8/10/16 9:31pm JakeGould:

What was Edward Bear’s follow-up to “Bearnings?” Why a few years later they just released this amazingly covered eponymous LP. img.discogs.com...
Avatar Wed. 8/10/16 9:31pm chris_in_space:

Yeah @efd, we're here for the funk as seen through your eyes. Always will be.

Whitey is a great name tbh. i recently met a great dog named Whitey

Chris Spedding?!
Avatar Wed. 8/10/16 9:36pm JakeGould:

It would be great if a future Republican presidential candidate could just be called “Whitey.”

First Sharks LP is great too.

Avatar Wed. 8/10/16 9:39pm JakeGould:

Sharks, Bush, Bear… Trooper, Wine, Brothers… Below zero PhD. Your artists today are quite narrative.
Avatar Wed. 8/10/16 9:42pm Chris M.:

hey efd what's your phone number i want to prank call you so don't answer
Avatar Wed. 8/10/16 9:43pm efd:

this seems counterproductive.
Avatar Wed. 8/10/16 9:44pm JakeGould:

@ChrisM: You drunk or is this insane humidity giving you some reverse-bends or something?
Avatar Wed. 8/10/16 9:48pm JakeGould:

I guess I crossed a boundary with Chris. :/ Sorry!
Avatar Wed. 8/10/16 9:51pm mariano:

Oh, I dunno, @JakeGould, just some harmless horsin' around. And I'm no stranger to posting here in various stages of inebriation, though that's sadly not the case tonight, got too much work!
Avatar Wed. 8/10/16 9:51pm chris_in_space:

Wow, Scott & Charlene's Wedding... so good
Avatar Wed. 8/10/16 9:54pm efd:

yeah, I avoided that band for a long time because of their name. A foolish and capricious decision on my part, in hindsight.
Avatar Wed. 8/10/16 10:02pm Cheri Pi:

Heya EFD, killing me!!!
Avatar Wed. 8/10/16 10:04pm chris_in_space:

@efd I do that all the time with bands and their name. Current case in point: Car Seat Headrest <shudder>. Probably not a bad band though.
Avatar Wed. 8/10/16 10:06pm efd:

sorry/not sorry! :)
  Wed. 8/10/16 10:06pm Carmichael:

Evan, what it is...
Avatar Wed. 8/10/16 10:06pm efd:

@chris_in_space YES. That's another one for sure.
Avatar Wed. 8/10/16 10:08pm mariano:

Writhing Squares, on the other hand -- now there's a band name!

Avatar Wed. 8/10/16 10:13pm coelacanth:

hey chris!
Avatar Wed. 8/10/16 10:13pm mariano:

Was about to say, this sounds like the Canadian version of The Cars before I looked, don't know this album that well. Hey @coelacanth, feeling better I hope?
  Wed. 8/10/16 10:14pm Carmichael:

Best band name of the 80s/90s: The The.
Avatar Wed. 8/10/16 10:16pm JakeGould:

Welsh! Gah!
Avatar Wed. 8/10/16 10:17pm mariano:

Hey, nice to hear some Welsh! Sorry, I kinda dig it, Jake...
Avatar Wed. 8/10/16 10:17pm coelacanth:

greetings mariano! better, Thanks for asking.
Avatar Wed. 8/10/16 10:18pm mariano:

Well alright, @coelacanth, that's what I like to hear!

Celtic languages are great for singing, I think, especially Irish Gaelic.
Avatar Wed. 8/10/16 10:20pm JakeGould:

Avatar Wed. 8/10/16 10:21pm mariano:

No, not knocking you @JakeGould, to each his own!
  Wed. 8/10/16 10:24pm Carmichael:

I'm Irish, and I still laugh at the Welsh word spellings. Sorry, Wales people.
Avatar Wed. 8/10/16 10:24pm chris_in_space:

If I know @JakeGould–and I've seen him around these and other FMU parts for quite a while now, consistently–I'm calling "ironic" on those ALL-CAPS there.
Avatar Wed. 8/10/16 10:27pm mariano:

Welsh does have that one sound, the way they pronounce "LL" which is kind of like a slurred "thl."
Avatar Wed. 8/10/16 10:32pm coelacanth:

i may (probably?) have some welsh in me, and i don't get it... but i do quite like to hear a woman singing in welsh.
Avatar Wed. 8/10/16 10:35pm mariano:

There's a great old movie with Alec Guinness about two Welsh country boys who win tickets to go see a soccer match in London, and they get lost and have all kinds of misadventures. But there's this one scene where one of them wants a beer at a pub after last call, and the barkeep tells him it's the law, and he says scornfully "You and your Saxon laws!" Always made me chuckle.
Avatar Wed. 8/10/16 10:37pm melinda:

good evening everyone
  Wed. 8/10/16 10:37pm Carmichael:

I found the Explorers Club on FMU many years ago. Excellent surf sound!
Avatar Wed. 8/10/16 10:42pm efd:

They have a lot of #1 Hits!
Avatar Wed. 8/10/16 10:48pm Bootsie:

@EFD I'm pretty sure Sparks recorded the BEST summer song ever.
Avatar Wed. 8/10/16 10:50pm coelacanth:

hi melinda!

...yay! go social media airhorn!
Avatar Wed. 8/10/16 10:50pm melinda:

efd are you doing another disco party show this summer?
  Wed. 8/10/16 10:52pm Marc:

My favorite summer song is the Number One Song the day I was born: "Summer In The City" by The Lovin' Spoonful
Avatar Wed. 8/10/16 10:52pm melinda:

hi coel! airhorns are great for grabbing one's attention.
Avatar Wed. 8/10/16 10:52pm efd:

YES! Two weeks from tonight, Aug 24th!
Avatar Wed. 8/10/16 10:53pm coelacanth:

i'm watching the olympics but keeping the inane, fratboy commentary at a minimum volume. the airhorn rose right above it.
