Spin Age Blasters with Creamo Coyl
If they handed out MacArthur Genius grants for misanthropy, John D. Morton would be short-listed. Morton’s main claim to fame is his mid-’70s Cleveland band of nihilistic rock n’ roll lowlifes, electric eels. The eels plied their trade surrounded by post-industrial strife; the crumbling landscape providing inspiration -- and a reason to get the hell out. But before Morton pulled up stakes for New York City, he made one more attempt to give Cleveland the soundtrack it deserved. X__X terrorized the city’s punk scene with a smart and muscular take on no wave. Earlier this month, X__X conducted a tour of the American south, midwest and east coast, including a stop at the world-renowned Gonerfest. The band stopped by the WFMU studios at the tail end of the tour to record a stellar session for SPIN AGE BLASTERS (named after an electric eels song, natch). Morton’s cohorts -- original guitarist Andrew Klimek, Rocket From the Tombs’ Craig Bell on bass and drummer extraordinaire/man-about-town Weasel Walter -- play these songs with grit, determination and humor. Expertly recorded by Ernie Indradat, tune in this Sunday to SPIN AGE BLASTERS from 10 pm til midnight to get your dose of non-sense.


Evie Sands performs live in studio
Sunday, October 29th, 8pm - 10pm
on
Gaylord Fields's show
Evie Sands may have embarked upon her celebrated recording career in the early ’60s as a teenage vocalist, but more than 50 years and dozens of beloved songs later, she has steadily added songwriter, guitarist, producer, engineer, and record label head to her curriculum vitae. And beyond that she has no intention of collecting dust, as evinced by her new EP, Shine for Me, supplemented with a brace of live performances with band accompaniment, including shows on Oct. 21 at the Cutting Room in Manhattan and on Oct. 22 at Brooklyn's Union Pool.

In an exclusive session at and for WFMU, Evie's five-piece combo will revisit a career's sampling of her work from various eras, bringing forth classic and newer songs in all their soul, folk-rock and country shadings, carried by her incredible vocal instrument. Please honor Evie's gifts by tuning in to hear a true musical titan giving a master's class in performance and songcraft. Entertainment and enlightenment are guaranteed.

Lea Thomas
Saturday, October 28th, 6am - 9am
on
Shrunken Planet with Jeffrey Davison
Hawaiian-born singer/songwriter Lea Thomas has always had a deep and profound connection to the natural world. Moving to Brooklyn did not weaken that connection but rather made her work even harder to maintain that thread. Her songs became deeper as a result. Her January 2017 release, Want For Nothing (Tacky Records) is a portrait of the songwriter seeking greater meaning. This session runs over an hour, and thus will begin at 7:55am.

Along with the interview, Marcel will be playing selections that will showcase music from Magia Roja and the local scene.


Philip Lewin
Tuesday, October 24th, 9pm - Midnight
on Irene Trudel's show

In 1975, Philip Lewin released a charming homebrew of an album, all of 300 copies worth. "Am I Really Here All Alone?" was barely noticed outside of Toronto where it was created. In time, Lewin's album was sought after by collectors, fetching a premium price for this collection of melancholic folk with a mildly psychedelic tone. Tompkins Square rescued Philip's album from obscurity, and he's been touring in support of the re-release. Philip Lewin stops by to play a few tunes for WFMU.

Il Maestro will also be in attendance for a Q&A at Nitehawk Cinema's November 2nd screening of Fulci's "City of the Living Dead."

Singles Going Steady with Bob Balaban
Monday, October 23rd, 3am - 6am
on
Circle Time with Mark R.
"Hey, it's that guy," everybody says when they see Bob Balaban. An inauspicious film debut as a timid schoolboy performing oral sex on Jon Voigt in "Midnight Cowboy" blossomed into a film and television career that includes roles in over 100 movies and TV shows, including all four of Christopher Guest's improvised quasi-reality comedies, as Elaine's jilted NBC executive on "Seinfeld," roles in "Catch 22," "The Grand Budapest Hotel," "Close Encounters of the Third Kind,""Absence of Malice," and literally dozens of others, as well as numerous Broadway appearances. And that's just his acting resume. He's also served as director, producer (for the Academy Award-nominated "Gosford Park") and children's book author (the acclaimed "McGrowl" series, about a boy and his bionic dog). Yes, he's got stories. Tune in Monday morning at 3 am to hear a few.

Plus: A live set from Sandcatchers - a stellar instrumental quartet whose music, in their words (and to our ears) is inspired "both by Arabic maqam and the Appalachian Trail". The band's debut album What We Found Along The Way is coming out later this month on the new artist-run label Chant Records. Sandcatchers join us ahead of a a big record release show Thursday night November 2nd at National Sawdust in Williamsburg.

Jane Weaver
Friday, October 20th, 3pm - 6pm
on
Sophisticated Boom Boom with Sheila B.
When Manchester-based producer, songwriter, and artist Jane Weaver released her ninth album, Modern Kosmology, earlier this year, music journalists lavished the record with praise, with Alex Petridis of The Guardian highlighting her "ability to alchemise her dusty source material into pop music.” It is precisely Jane Weaver’s blending of beautiful pop melodies with the mystical, the psychedelic, and the electronic that makes Jane Weaver and Modern Kosmology so appealing—both for fans of the avant-garde and pop. Jane Weaver will be making an appearance on Sophisticated Boom Boom to play material off her new album, and to chat with Sheila B. about her creative process, record collecting, and the Swedish artist who inspired Modern Kosmology.


All B-Sides All Night Long
Thursday, October 19th, 9pm - Midnight
on
Music To Spazz By with Dave the Spazz
This Singles Going Steady Week Dave the Spazz will once again be plugging the wrong side of the record. Often the forgotten underbelly of a 45 was usually more rockin’ and crazier than its more illustrious flip, but you knew that already. Turn on, tune in, flip out!

on

The Music of Shooby Taylor
Monday, October 16th, 7pm - 8pm
on
Vocal Fry with Dan Bodah
William "Shooby" Taylor called himself "The Human Horn" and turned up on the fringes of the 70s and 80s New York jazz scene playing "air saxophone." Few took him seriously, so Taylor paid for studio time to record himself scatting over his favorite records, or with live accompanists. He achieved belated renown when WFMU discovered one of his tapes in the 1990s. Taylor even visited the station in 2002, shortly before passing away at age 73. Two years later, WFMU Wednesday afternoon host, Irwin Chusid, acquired dozens of Shooby's master tapes. Irwin recently issued two digital volumes featuring 45 tracks of Taylor's strange vocalizing via Bandcamp and iTunes. Irwin visits Vocal Fry on Monday October 16th to showcase the fascinating legacy of Shooby Taylor, the Human Horn, and maybe even share a few exclusive tracks with us.

Protomartyr live encore broadcast from Montgomery Hall
Sunday, October 15th, 6am - 9am
on
Burn It Down! with Nate K.
Simpy put, Detroit's Protomartyr are one of the most dynamic rock bands working today. Let's make it even simpler, they're one of the best. The band's dark, anthemic post-punk, combined with frontman Joe Casey's literary sing-speak vocals, will bring to mind certain UK acts from that formative, much-worshiped era just after '77, but Protomartyr's sound remains 100 percent in line with the twenty-first-century US of A, a necessary and vaguely triumphant soundtrack to counteract the festering decay and descent into oblivion swirling around us. The band recently played an astounding set at Montgomery Hall, and Burn It Down with Nate K. is very excited to present an encore broadcast of that show. It will be followed by a brief interview with singer Joe Casey.

Friday, October 13th, 9pm - Midnight
on
Daniel Blumin's show
On the heels of a brand new mix for The Fader magazine, the premiere of Elevator to Mezzanine, a multi-media project with New Yorker DeForrest Brown Jr. on view in Brooklyn, a book with Nora Khan titled Fear Indexing The X-Files and several U.S. concert dates to go, busy-as-a-bee Berlin-based British musician/author/artist Steven Warwick aka Heatsick returns to WFMU for a rare radio session. In the last year, Steven has released "Nadir", an excellent mixtape album on the PAN label and "Die Blaue Stunde", a dreamlike collaboration with UK electronicist Bass Clef, so expect songs brimming with drum machine rhythms, electronic hum and whirr, and a dollop of dayglo flutter! And what better way to close out Friday the 13th than by discussing fear indexing via Scully & Mulder??? Don't miss! Catch Steven Warwick live: October 4 @ The Lab, San Francisco October 5 @ Yale Union, Portland October 11 @ Le Laboratoire, Boston

Thursday, October 12th, Midnight - 3am
on
Nickel and Dime Radio with $mall ¢hange
Nickel and Dime Radio rolls out the tattered red carpet for two veteran hip hop/club DJs with extremely stupid skills, DJ Color TV and DJ Dyllemma.

Color TV hosts The DJ Green Room, an online show with lots of old school guest legends, and regularly travels the world bringing beats and pieces to the masses. Dyllemma is a Sunday resident at Fat Buddha Bar in NYC, and formerly of Fat Beats and Scratch Academy, and also a very busy pro DJ around the city.

Adrian Crowley
Tuesday, October 10th, 9pm - Midnight
on Irene Trudel's show

Irish songster Adrian Crowley writes some of the most darkly beautiful tunes and fantasmigorical lyrics you'll ever come across. Crowley's songs unfold like musical novella or like the soundtrack to Brothers Quay film. On his 8th album, "Dark-Eyed Messenger," Thomas Bartlett aka Doveman produced, adding antique-sounding touches to Adrian's music. Adrian Crowley recorded a live set for WFMU when he visited NYC this past May.

on
Morricone Island with Devon E. Levins

The score features the Turkish instrument saz played acoustically and amplified with effects creating electronic sounds from a minimal sound source. BaBa ZuLa as a band has also composed for film, television and documentary since its inception in 1996 including "Somersault In A Coffin," "Ice Cream, I Scream," "Biz Size Asik Olduk," "Hyena" and "Mustang."


Wire
Tuesday, October 10th, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

A return to the program six years since their last visit, Wire perform live in studio on WFMU. Formed in 1976, the group immediately staked its place as one of Britain's most celebrated exports of art-punk whose first three records (Pink Flag, 154, and Chairs Missing) are universally regarded as picture-perfect documents of innovative experimentation in songcraft. Traversing the lines between raw minimalist punk and complex experimentations, they've influenced everyone from Minor Threat to My Bloody Valentine, and continue to create new soundways with their latest release Silver and Lead. Wire's 40 years have been marked by constant flux, side projects, regrouping and reinvention, yet they have been without fail pushing their futuristic ideas into the present, never resting on past laurels. The current lineup of Colin Newman, Graham Lewis, Robert Grey and Matthew Simms visit Brian Turner while in town for a three-night, sold out stand at Baby's All Right in Brooklyn from September 28-30.

Circle Time with Mark R.

As a special Into the BlackI October Fundraiser bonus, anyone who becomes a Swag-for-Life member or ups their existing Swag-for-Life pledge, can request two (2) songs, which Mark GUARANTEES will be played on the air, even if that means playing nothing but John Lennon's music for a whole month. You can even make me play that one where John just plays guitar while Yoko looks for her hand in the snow. Celebrate Johnny's birthday and help WFMU get Into the Black, too!

In advance of several upcoming performances, including a show at the American Folk Art Museum on Sept. 29th, Connie Lynn Petruk—she of smoky alto and hand percussion (and foot percussion, in the form of a well-kicked suitcase)—and her partner, Christmas Davis—he of guitar and vocal accompaniment—will regale with tales from their exposure to and observation of secrets gleaned from their respective upbringings in Canada and Florida.

How did that work out for you? Don’t worry, Male Gaze knows and they wrote some songs about it." Tune in Sunday, September 24, from 6 to 9 AM, to hear with this means.
