Martin Rushent, RIP
Wednesday, June 8th, 2011, 9pm - Midnight
on
The Evan "Funk" Davies Show
Legendary producer Martin Rushent, who died this past weekend at the entirely too young age of 63, is one of a select few to whom the term "legendary" can be applied without fear of hyperbole. His work on records by the Stranglers, Human League, Generation X, the Buzzcocks and so many others defined the sound of an era in the late '70s and early '80s, and his influence has continued ever since. Tune in to the Evan "Funk" Davies show this Wednesday night June 8th from 9pm-12midnight as Evan devotes his show to the music Rushent produced during his lengthy career, including some songs that may surprise you.

Rust Worship
Friday, May 27th, 2011, Midnight - 3am
on Wm. Berger presents My Castle of Quiet

Paul Haney is one of My Castle of Quiet's recurring characters, like Leo McKern's Number Two on the Prisoner, or Joel Murray's drunken client rep on Mad Men. Having appeared first as a guest DJ (archive), then again as part of the trio lineup of Towering Heroic Dudes (archive), these appearances still give only a glimpse of the wall of vibrating chaos that is Paul's solo project, Rust Worship. Using and abusing an array of sources, including cassettes, LPs, turntables, guitars and glass, Rust Worship is most often a polyrhythmic assault, where loops and delayed phrases collide and tumble over one another, sometimes clean and subtle, then rising to a distorted crescendo, like someone trying desperately to fight their way out of a bad dream. Cassettes on Obsolete Units and Cryptic Carousel tell only part of the Rust Worship tale, as part of the fun is the process, that of watching and hearing Paul make thoughtful choices and brave stabs in real time. Rust Worship's Castle visit is a long time in the making, and it's highly likely that Paul will pull a magnum opus (or two) out of his track bag, as so many live Castle guests have in the past.


The Booze
Thursday, May 26th, 2011, Noon - 3pm
on Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock

If there ever was a band with a name born to play the Three Chord Monte show, it's The Booze! Join us for an aural Booze cruise with these garage/R&B Mod-men from Atlanta, Georgia, who will also be playing Maxwell's in Hoboken NJ that night!

Joy Gregory, Writer of "The Shaggs: Philosophy of the World" Play
Wednesday, May 25th, 2011, Noon - 3pm
on
Miniature Minotaurs with Kurt Gottschalk
Forty years ago, the Shaggs were notoriously the worst rock band ever. Their album, masterminded and funded by their father, was mocked for its strange and atonal naivety and championed by Frank Zappa and others. Now, the story is being told in an off-Broadway production. Playwright Joy Gregory comes to the Miniature Minotaur cave to discuss the band and making a musical about bad music.


Arrington de Dionyso's Malaikat dan Singa
Tuesday, May 24th, 2011, 6am - 9am
on Marty McSorley's show

Old Time Relijun frontman Arrington de Dionyso enchants the WFMU studio with his personal brand of Indonesian shaman rock. Expect throat singing, trashy guitars, heavy bass, intoxicating beats, hell dragons and tiger's blood.


Blue Sausage Infant and Violet
Monday, May 23rd, 2011, 3pm - 6pm
on
Scott Williams's show
Blue Sausage Infant (BSI) and Violet are 2 long-reigning stars of the inexplicably obscure DC electro/experimental/noise scene. Violet produces subtle deep-listening cold and distant textures through the use of not much more than a zither and a bunch of toy robot bugs. BSI warms things up a bit with some beats, lapsteel loops and the odd human voice. Both represent the excellent DC label Zeromoon and are major architects behind the annual Sonic Circuits festival.


Redhooker
Monday, May 23rd, 2011, Noon - 3pm
on Irene Trudel's show

Named after a remembered year of sadness and isolation in an industrial quarter of Brooklyn, Redhooker once again brings their intertwining strings and sounds to the WFMU studios. The ensemble will preview some lovely new music they'll be performing at Merkin Hall on Thursday, May 26th as a part of the Tribeca New Music Festival. Redhooker's in-studio performance will feature the newest member of the group, Derek Muro on saxophone and will also highlight the group's violinist Maxim Moston doubling on the Rhodes piano through his marriage-straining gaggle of boutique analog effects pedals.


Mammal of Paradise
Sunday, May 22nd, 2011, 6am - 9am
on Beastin' The Airwaves! with Keili

Keili didn't know there was such a thing as "catchy nu-gaze" until she heard her favorite new band, Brooklyn's own Mammal of Paradise, for the first time. Discover like Keili did, how minor chords and repetitive beats can be beautiful without being depressing.


Rapoon / Promute
Sunday, May 22nd, 2011, 3am - 6am
on
Noise and Syrup with Jeff M
Robin Storey and Shaun Sandor stopped by to do two improvised sets for Noise and Syrup.  Storey, who has long worked as Rapoon, and was a co-founder of legendary outfit Soviet France (zoviet-france), assembles a textured and trance-like collage of ethnic loops, radio samples and various sounds of unknown origins. Sandor performing as Promute performs a sparser combination of improvised metal and synth, with rhythms rising and disappearing again. He also runs the label Blondena Music.

Just for bonus points, he's managed all these collaborations while remaining a full time student, staying locked up in his home studio for hours, messing with new effects and Tweeting the results. His next EP quickly got picked up by Tri Angle records, and we'll hear some of those new tracks with Clams in the studio on Awesome New Place.

Banda de los Muertos - the lost Barbès tapes
Saturday, April 30th, 2011, 6pm - 9pm
on
Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg
Well, not really lost... it's just that technology failed us during the first hour of our remote broadcast from Barbès in Park Slope on March 26 - so Banda de los Muertos's scorching set didn't make it to the airwaves. But we'll right that wrong by airing their set this evening. Banda de los Muertos, by the way, is a stellar unit of NY jazz, experimental and multi-culti musicians playing the bombastic yet sublime brass band music of Sinaloa in northwestern Mexico - the first band in New York to take on this great tradition. And they hit the Brooklyn circuit again soon - for a big Cinco de Mayo show with Chicha Libre at Littlefield in Gowanus - plus another Barbès show on Saturday May 7.

Tyler John Tyler are a Chicago trio featuring former members of the Ponys and Daily Void that play a lean brand of rock that brings to mind the Modern Lovers fronted by Poly Styrene (rest in peace)! They have a new LP on Slow Fizz records.

It's a double dose of greatness this Saturday, so get ready to be rocked two times by Shannon & the Clams and Tyler John Tyler!

Dominic Lash & Nate Wooley
Friday, April 29th, 2011, 9am - Noon
on
The Long Rally with Scott McDowell
When Scott found out Oxford, UK double bassist Dominic Lash is currently living and playing in the States, he knew he had to ask him down to WFMU. Scott admires his holistic approach to free improvisation, utilizing (and expanding upon) the full language of his instrument: violent plucking or tapping of the strings, dense resonant bowing, rhythmic thumping or tapping the bass's wood, etc. Dom is adept at a range of styles (minimalism, lowercase music, Derek Bailey-esque free improv, jazz) and sometimes even uses them in all in the same passage, yet he plays with a sense of humor, sensitivity and spontaneous intensity that is worth witnessing. Dom brought along trumpet alchemist, improv expert, and WFMU pal Nate Wooley to spar and chatter with. Should be a doozy.


"The Wrecking Crew" director Denny Tedesco
Thursday, April 28th, 2011, 9pm - Midnight
