39: Danpilled III: Danpilled Summer (with Matthew Perpetua‪)‬ Junk Filter

    • Comedy

The third chapter in a continuing series between Junk Filter in Toronto and Matthew Perpetua’s Fluxpod in Brooklyn, Danpilled III is about vibin’ in a Steely Dan t-shirt as we start to emerge from the pandemic into the promise of a Danpilled Summer.

Matthew and I choose at least one good summer song from each of Steely Dan's golden age albums plus an overdue discussion of Donald Fagen’s 1982 solo record The Nightfly, which is basically a Steely Dan album without Walter Becker, and appreciations of several key studio musicians that helped to define their sound: Jeff Porcaro, Bernard Purdie and Michael McDonald.

We discuss “Do It Again”, “King of the World”, “Parker’s Band”, “Bad Sneakers”, “Kid Charlemagne”, “The Fez” “I Got The News”, “Home At Last”, “Babylon Sisters”, “Glamour Profession”, “I.G.Y.”, “New Frontier”, “The Nightfly” and “Gaslighting Abbie” from their 21st century comeback LP Two Against Nature.
