Order and disorder in a freeform haze of terribly-played guitars, shorted-out electronics, found audio detritus, strange sounds from strange lands all around. Psych-punk-junk, collage, even pop. Lots of in-studio live performances to boot.

Upcoming events:

Tuesday, June 20th, 3pm - 6pm: New Zealand extravaganza with Roger Shepherd (founder of Flying Nun Records), plus Francisca Griffin of Look Blue Go Purple
When Roger Shepherd conceived his record label Flying Nun in the backroom of a Christchurch, New Zealand record store in the early '80's, he gave birth to one of the most fertile and influential imprints in the independent music world. It's DIY aesthetic and connectivity to the country's post-punk zeitgeist gave international exposure to such artists as The Chills, Verlaines, Clean, Tall Dwarfs, Bailter Space, Straitjacket Fits, Bats, Axemen, and more. The label was sold off in 1990, but returned to its independent self in 2009, and continues to create a platform for New Zealand's music scene. Recently, Shepherd authored his memoir, In Love With These Times, out on Harper-Collins. He stops by Brian's show today for a retrospective on the great Flying Nun, with plenty of rarely-heard live recordings of the label's roster, collected by Brian to complement his visit. As a bonus, Francisca Griffin (one-time known as Kathy Bull) phones in to talk about her time in the fantastic 1980's all- female combo Look Blue Go Purple who hailed from Dunedin, NZ. For the uninitiated, Captured Tracks and Flying Nun have just released a stateside 2LP anthology of this great band's wonderful and enduring lysergic pop.

Tuesday, June 27th, 3pm - 6pm: Feral Ohms
Feral Ohms are an Oakland trio specializing in thundering, destructive caverock of the highest degree, visiting WFMU today on the heels of their debut studio LP and a Union Pool afternoon blowout from June 24th. Featuring Ethan Miller on guitar and vox from Howlin' Rain, Comets On Fire, and most recently Heron Oblivion, with ferocity matched by drummer Chris Johnson (Drunk Horse), and Josh Haynes (Nudity). Expect blisters and boggled brains!

Tuesday, July 11th, 3pm - 6pm: Razorlegs
Bleeding walls of overloaded guitar and drum interplay from the psychedelic punk duo of Andrew Hurst on drums and PD Fadensonnen on guitar and stylophone. Fans of Blue Cheer, Fushitsusha, Chrome and general amplified confusion will dig today's in-studio proceedings.

Tuesday, August 29th, 3pm - 6pm: Tropical Trash
Not to be confused with the waste disposal agency in Hilton Head, South Carolina, the Louisville version of Tropical Trash liquify the proceedings with their unique blend of fried hardcore and no-wave trailerpark anthems. They play live today on the heels of their new Sophomore Lounge single and expect to headline The Rock's Presidential Victory concert in 2020.
