M. Geddes Gengras
Tuesday, May 28th, Midnight - 3am
on The Frow Show with Jesse Jarnow
Heady electronic wizard M. Geddes Gengras brings the weird to The Frow Show early in the wee hours of May 28th, plugging directly into the WFMU mothership for a live set celebrating the release of I Am the Last of That Green and Warm-Hued World, his layered and complex new album, out May 17th on Hausu Mountain. Ged’s last decade has included sweeping solo projects in a variety of modes, as well as ongoing projects, including participation in Duppy Gun, a dub/electronic collaboration between Ged, Sun Araw, Alex Grey, and a variety of Jamaican musicians.
Gladshot and The Piggies
Wednesday, May 29th, 9pm - Midnight
on The Evan "Funk" Davies Show
Double-barreled rock action to close out the month of May!
NYC garage-pop-psych outfit Gladshot returns to WFMU for their second live appearance! The band has a couple of albums under their belt; they cite AC/DC, Neil Diamond, and Cherry Glazerr as influences. They're playing at Baby's Alright in Brooklyn on Monday June 3. After years of gigging around NYC and beyond, The Piggies have finally released their first album, Something To Chew On (Sparkle-Time). They've got a trashy punk-blues sound, kind of like if you dipped a Heartbreakers ice cream cone in a vat of delicious AC/DC chocolate. They're playing at the Windjammer in Ridgewood on Saturday June 8.
Thursday, May 30th, 9pm - Midnight
on Music To Spazz By with Dave the Spazz
In anticipation of his show at Gran Torino on June 1st, legendary soul screamer Barrence Whitfield will drop by to discuss his latest platter Songs from the Sun Ra Cosmos--a collection of covers composed by Afrofuturist bandleader Sun Ra.
DeForrest Brown Jr. and Geng
Friday, June 7th, 9am - Noon
on Radio Ravioli with Olivia
DeForrest Brown Jr. and Geng will present their new piece called Culture War, which they've described as "drone meets Public Enemy." DeForrest Brown Jr. released The Wages of Being Black is Death with Kepla in September last year on Geng's NYC-based label PTP.
