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.

Avatar 9:07pm Marcel M:

Yo yo. Major key solos in the house.
  9:08pm Julie M Brooklyn:

I meant anything off of Marquee Moon, that is.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:09pm Uncle Michael:

I love this band...this album and Verlaine, but I also love Richard Lloyd telling Verlaine stories.
  9:17pm Eddy in Australia:

Good Thursday morning, Funksters. Wasn't able to tune in live last week cos I was back at work (subsequently laid off!) but want to say thanks for all the kind comments during the Australian excursion on Evan's May 3 show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:18pm efd:

Well that could only be the one and only Eddy from Australia! Laid off?! That's not good!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:18pm Uncle Michael:

  9:19pm Eddy in Australia:

Well that was weird! The message above is from me.
  9:20pm Eddy in Australia:

Technical issues! Moral of the story: don't take so much time off to go record shopping overseas,
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:21pm efd:

I'll fix it up for you, Eddy.

@UM - I was thinking of playing something from 10cc's Sheet Music LP, went with the Hotlegs b-side instead.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:21pm Uncle Michael:

I love the deep cuts.
  9:22pm Eddy in Australia:

That said, I'll now have to track down that Glass Torpedoes 45.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:23pm Uncle Michael:

You could gone with Halfnelson instead of Sparks, too!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:26pm efd:

and Neon Boys instead of Television while I was at it!

Tell that to the thermometer!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:29pm Switchblade Batman:

What up, @EFD and friends. What's the deets?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:30pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Wow! Lucky I'm here paying attention! This dropped earlier than usual!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:31pm chris_in_space:

@Switchblade Batman: deets are, it's time for the funk.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:34pm Switchblade Batman:

That it is @Chris_in_space. He's right the thermometer is saying its time for the summer songs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:34pm Uncle Michael:

I front. I front a lot.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:40pm steve:

the Flying single does have a great cover

Avatar 10:42pm JakeGould:

@steve: That is a great cover! And the Chastity Belt tour info is right here at the Partly Fart website… www.hardlyart.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:44pm chad from oregon:

I've really been enjoying the new Jesus and Mary chain album. It really seems to be hitting the right place when I least expect much to.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:47pm Switchblade Batman:

I should check it out @Chad, I loved Psycho Candy and Darklands but their later ones didn't do it for me. How does it compare?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:58pm chad from oregon:

It's like revisiting an old friend... twenty years later... without sounding like a "mature, 20 years later grown-up version" of the glory days.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:59pm Switchblade Batman:

Good review @Chad, will have to give it a listen for sure now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:00pm chad from oregon:

Or maybe it is... but that formula finally hit with where I am and worked without seeming too obvious. :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:00pm Drunken Creep:

loved that weightless track! what a beautiful song!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:02pm chad from oregon:

Though it does have female vocalists all over it... clearly hoping to possibly revisit what worked with the Sometimes Always hit in the early 90s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:07pm Cooh John:

Relaxing to the funk after working hard all day. Letting the music wash over me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:18pm Switchblade Batman:

I'm loving the moon duo @EFD great choice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:21pm efd:

thank you Switchblade!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:22pm Switchblade Batman:

Nope, thank you. Its another band I would have no clue about if it wasn't for you WFMU DJs
  11:27pm Stevel:

This set is rolling along in a most satisfactory fashion, thank you very much.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:34pm Drunken Creep:

Standing with Blade on being thankful for all of the outstanding music WFMU brings
  11:36pm Stevel:

Please tell me Street Eaters are coming through the Midwest.
  11:38pm #126344:

these Street Eaters are from beyond the noize
  11:38pm Stevel:

An almost Lemmy bass style. Makes it lot of noise!
  11:40pm Stevel:

Bloomington offers hope for next time! [sob]
Avatar 11:44pm Hoboken Jack:

I have my filthy friends ticket for later this summer!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:48pm efd:

cool Jack!
  11:49pm Stevel:

Also loving the Golden Pelicans, and now...

  11:51pm Stevel:


You did this for the drum breaks, didn't you? It's okay.

Wow. Never heard it without the vocals.
  11:53pm Stevel:

So many nerdy questions.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:53pm efd:

yeah it's quite something with no vocals!
  11:55pm Stevel:

How were they so funky?
  11:57pm Stevel:

Sofa King cool!
