Ah the world’s back to normal...TP is back and another good delvin setlist. Ok Ok so maybe the world’s pretty far from normal right now, but you know what I mean...!

Is the live Oingo Boingo from the ‘urgh a music war’ lp? I’ve been revisiting that double album a lot lately. Getting that collection as a young teen was my gateway for so many artists, everything from skafish to the cramps.

(Still have never seen the film!)

Thank you for the kind words, Bip. Yep, the Oingo Boingo and Joan Jett selections both were taken from the Urgh! soundtrack. (DVDs of the film are available on Amazon.)

Oh man, never seen “Urgh”? You def gotta check it out - some performances were really enhanced by the visuals. Clearly the filmmakers chose some songs for the visual/theatrical appeal as much as the music (Gary Numan driving around a little car whilst performing, Lux Interior deep-throating the mic, and the Surf Punks elaborate on-stage skateboard park all pop to mind).

Oh, and Delvin, let me know if you or your fellows DJs at your station would like to do your shows live from your homes. WFMU has a platoon of engineering whizzes who can hep you to the scene. I have friends who would be happy to help a volunteer fellow-freeformer. As I’m sure you know, live radio can be the most satisfying way to go, for both DJ and audience.

I miss these lists if for no other reason to point out every time you play Be Bop Deluxe. As an amateur guitarist hacking away at songs alone in my room, "Sister Seagull" is probably one the I've butchered the most over the years.

This has been one of my go-to's the past few weeks. Really liked the Eno/Roxy Music special a couple weeks ago. (That should still be on the archive.)

As for The Fall track - if you're not listening too carefully, the chorus sounds like something else.
