Megan Jean and Byrne Klay met in 2004 while living in New York City, where they were avid WFMU listeners.

Fourteen shows turned into 200 a year and a newfound home in Charleston's music community. While on the road, the pair forged their unique sound.

He sometimes describes what he does as ambient punk rock -- or maybe skewed new age is a better phrase. His music often has hints of accessible melodies hovering under a surface of intricate sound textures. Mike's "Ego Blasphemy" tour has him stopping by WFMU before an October 2nd performance at Zebulon and shows in New England and Philly. You can check Mike out online at his Blogspot page, Editions Shiflet.

Nomad
Wednesday, September 19th, 2012, 3am - 6am
on
Distort Jersey City with Reed Dunlea
This week Nomad launches its insane noise raid attack on Jersey City. The NYC band rips through a blistering set of d-beat raw punk, all sung in Japanese (where their singer is originally from). Think a more melodic version of Confuse but with wilder guitar parts. A true study in the genre. Featuring members of (the almighty) Perdition, Sad Boys, and Zatsuon. Followed by an interview with the band and extended posse. Don't pose, tune in.

Multicult
Sunday, September 16th, 2012, 3am - 6am
on Imaginary Radio with Chris M.

Noise rock (in the most flattering sense of the term) power trio from Baltimore stops by to melt speakers and ruin minds. The band's sound is an intelligent sort of primitive - think AmRep in the early '90s with Rapeman thrown in. They are currently on tour supporting an excellent new full-length will be performing a live set on Imaginary Radio.


Philip Jeck & Mike Harding (Touch 30th Anniversary Special)
Saturday, September 15th, 2012, 9pm - Midnight
on Daniel Blumin's show

Premier UK experimental label Touch turns 30 this year. To celebrate, Touch has been organizing events in Europe, and from September 13th to the 16th the celebration lands in New York City with a series of events at Issue Project Room, Anthology Film Archives, and Experimental Intermedia. Afraid of leaving home? Not to worry - the festivities also hit WFMU as label co-owner Mike Harding and composer Philip Jeck drop in for a visit!

Tune in as Harding discusses the label's history and spins tracks from the imprint's long out-of-print cassettes, recordings from the label's roster of hit makers (e.g. Fennesz, Mika Vainio, Oren Ambarchi), and music that served to inspire the founding of the label!

Then, Philip Jeck, a Touch mainstay and artist primarily known for his mesmerizing work with prepared vinyl, performs live! Layers of creaky loops, hints of long-forgotten melodies, and echo-chamber strings meld with crackle, bass hum, and recombinant wormholes of sound. A Saturday night to remember. Do not miss!


Musicians for Mali
Saturday, September 15th, 2012, 6pm - 9pm
on
Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg
Political instability has caused a major refugee crisis in Northern Mali. It's a cultural crisis too: In this region that gave us the sublime desert blues sound of Tinariwen and so many others, religious fundamentalists have now banned music. On Saturday September 22, African and American musicians will join in Musicians for Mali, a concert at City Winery to benefit refugees and raise awareness. The headliners are Toubab Krewe, a band of North Carolinians inspired by Malian music. Two more Americans taking part in the benefit, Banning Eyre and Sam Dickey, join Rob tonight to explore how this music has resonated so much with musicians outside Africa. They'll play favorite CDs from the region and update us on what's happening and what can be done to help.

Catch 'em live on the radio from 3 to 6 pm and then see 'em at Cake Shop in NYC later in the night on September 15, and at Death by Audio in Brooklyn on September 16.

And then check Toronto’s Pow Wows: think equal parts saturnine Velvet Underground evil psych, goofball Kingmen -style garage, happy Searchers pop & creepy crawly Weirdos punk!

Composer/Conductor Petr Kotik and Composer Bunita Marcus
Friday, September 14th, 2012, 3pm - 6pm
on
Miniature Minotaurs with Kurt Gottschalk
Composer / conductor / flautist Petr Kotik first met John Cage when he was living in Czechoslovakia more than five decades ago. He worked with the famed composer/philosopher extensively after moving to America in 1969, premiered some of Cage’s works and organized a concert at Carnegie Hall for Cage's 80th birthday. Sadly the honoree died just months before the event. Kotik is now restaging that birthday concert as a part of his "Beyond Cage" festival.

Bunita Marcus, born in Madison, Wisconsin, was a recognized pianist and bass clarinetist when she began composing at the age of thirteen. She has worked in both electronic and instrumental mediums and received a Ph.D. in Composition from the State University of New York at Buffalo in 1981. Marcus met Morton Feldman in 1976, beginning a long association that lasted until his death in 1987. Feldman and Marcus composed side by side, sharing musical thoughts and ideas. In 1985 Feldman dedicated his new piano composition: For Bunita Marcus.

They will stop by to discuss the much beloved and misunderstood Cage, his longtime associate Feldman, and to play some of his favorite Cage (and beyond) recordings.


Grafvolluth
Friday, September 14th, 2012, Midnight - 3am
on Wm. Berger presents My Castle of Quiet

Together since 1999, Grafvolluth are black-metal craftsmen, creating complex, epic material that incorporates experimental music (they have shared membership with Kama Rupa) and progressive-rock arranging. The core of their songs stays very raw and dirty, though; no less "ugly" for the sophistication of its context. Their latest full-length, Long Live Death! on Regimental Records (a longstanding [2002] purveyor of vital black metal), is a My Castle of Quiet favorite, equal parts rough-hewn and contemplative/spiritual, like some beautiful, old-Teuton carving. Grafvolluth rarely play live, maybe never on the radio, so their LIVE appearance on MCoQ is truly an event "against time." Don't miss it!

This week we are joined by from Brooklyn's Herzog Rising. Featuring members of Divorce Money among other Brooklyn acts, Herzog Rising blast through a dissonant, loud, chaotic live set. Rene's howling vocals are a perfect match to the pummeling wall of sound put forth by the rest of the band. After one of the songs he was asked about the lyrics, to which he replied "oh I was just yelling." The closest band we can compare this to is Clockcleaner. Their new LP (recorded by Ben of Pygmy Shrews, The Men, Hubble, etc.) is due out very soon. Check them out live this Thursday at 538 Johnson Ave in Brooklyn with NASDAQ Werewolf, Worsh*t (Russia), Nuclear Spring, Shoxx, and a special guest.
