Seven Second Delay at Upright Citizens Brigade Theater
Wednesday, July 21st, 2010, 6pm - 7pm
on
Seven Second Delay with Andy and Ken
Seven Second Delay returns to the Upright Citizen's Brigade Theater for another hour of live broadcast comedy.

Plus musical invention expert Bradford Reed and Andy's Rent-A-Friend will be in the house. The UCB is located at 307 West 26th Street in Manhattan, near the corner of 8th Avenue. $5.


Ed Pitaro
Tuesday, July 20th, 2010, 6pm - 7pm
on
Sportsy Talk with Bronwyn C.& Jim
It's Deep Dish as Bronwyn and Jay welcome special guest Ed Pitaro, food writer and chef, to discuss why Americans drink so much Bud Lite, class distinctions in beverage choice, and what's the deal with the oatmeal martini.


Unrest
Tuesday, July 20th, 2010, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

Certainly one of the cornerstones of U.S. 90's indie rock, Washington DC's Unrest evolved from schizophrenic postpunk roots into finely crafted, texture-heavy, Brit-reverent, and even experimental pop music. Records like Malcolm X Park and Imperial FFRR earned them a heavy fan base and eventual gravitation onto 4AD records by 1993 after a huge discography of homegrown releases on leader Mark Robinson's Teenbeat record label. They disbanded in 1994, did one reunion show in 2005, and return with the lineup of Robinson, Bridget Cross, and Phil Krauth for a Teenbeat 26th Anniversary tour. Unrest makes a stop by Brian's show for what's sure to be a killer live set. You can also check them out at Maxwells in Hoboken on July 7th, and July 9th at the Bell House in Brooklyn.


PC Worship
Saturday, July 17th, 2010, 3am - 6am
on
Nat Roe
Channeling Nirvana via Peter Brotzmann, Bushwick's PC Worship would evoke heroin chic if their songs weren't so damn intelligent. Featuring members of Gary War and Teeth Mountain among others, PC Worship picked haphazardly from their monstrous pile of songs in WFMU's studios earlier this week and are busy mastering the recordings for broadcast on Nat Roe's program this Saturday at 3AM. Watch out for this band, guys, Imma tell you this much.


The Three Chord Monte Comeback Special (Joe Belock fills in for Billy Jam)
Friday, July 16th, 2010, 3pm - 6pm
on
Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock
Move over Elvis and Lola Heatherton - the Three Chord Monte program returns to the WFMU airwaves with a sizzling hot summer lineup crammed into three hours. First up, it's Muck and the Mires, returning to Jersey City for the first time in six years! Imagine if the Ramones had played the Cavern Club -- that's what these Boston rave-ups sound like. Then, it's the raw Stooges-inspired rock sounds of Wheels On Fire from Athens, Ohio, who are so rocking, they don't even need a bass player!


C. Lavender
Friday, July 16th, 2010, Midnight - 3am
on Wm. Berger presents My Castle of Quiet

C. Lavender is a sound-experimenter from WFMU's home state of NJ, whose latest work renders collage noise with an unabashed violence, but also a sense of whimsy, and occasional bumpy rhythms never off the table. When she isn't lurching amps across the room with the Laundry Room Squelchers, or leaping into crowds off a Cock ESP stage, or traveling great distances to play four-minute sets, C Lav is in her studio crafting the excellent tracks currently up at her myspace page. Lavender has been an avid supporter of the My Castle of Quiet program from the very start, having co-hosted twice with William, and also contributed the unsettling-yet-somehow-jovial "Rites of Winter" to the MCoQ 2010 WFMU Marathon premium CD. Now she returns to WFMU to ply her considerable sound-mashing talents. Will she beat up her Precision-knockoff bass, sending signals flying, or will she pilot her ferocious Soviet synthesizer? Hopefully all this and more.


Nardwuar vs. Gene Hoglan
Wednesday, July 14th, 2010, 8pm - 9pm
on
Nardwuar The Human Serviette Show
An interview with The "Atomic Clock" Gene Hoglan, known for his incredible Death Metal, Heavy Metal, Blast Beat style of drumming  *and* now, get this, also his instructional "How to Play Drums" DVD!  You've seen him play in Dethklok, Death, Strapping Young Lad and many more. Now hear him on WFMU!  Doot doola doot doo... doot doo!


Coliseum live in the studio AND a tribute to Ronnie James Dio!
Tuesday, July 13th, 2010, Noon - 3pm
on
Diane's Kamikaze Fun Machine
Louisville, Kentucky's Coliseum will perform a live set on the Fun Machine; they're touring to support their newest release: "House With A Curse" produced by J Robbins (of Government Issue & Jawbox fame)! Check them out at: Europa/Brooklyn- Thursday July 8th, in Bethlehem, PA (St. Bernard's) Weds July 7th, and Philadelphia July 6th at The Barbary. Coliseum's postmodern hardcore sound is as muscular and brutal as it is edgy and precise. A trio to be reckoned with, and coming to WFMU! Later in the program Diane pays tribute to Ronnie James Dio, who would have turned 68 on July 10th, with a journey through this amazing vocalist's rich career. TUNE IN!


Blacastan and Moe Pope
Tuesday, July 13th, 2010, Midnight - 3am
on
Coffee Break For Heroes & Villains with Noah
You will never catch Blacastan rocking a mullet or a neon cardigan, he'll never auto-tune his lyrics. His sound is not only the past, but a glimpse of an unpaved lane on the highway to hip hop's holy land. The way Rap was meant to be heard! Hailing from Hartford, CT, Blacastan just dropped his debut, "Blac Sabbath" on Brick Records.

MC Moe Pope's career first took off in the early 2000s with Bay Area-based hip-hop band Mission (who later became known as Crown City Rockers). He's also been connected to Electric Company and Project Move. Now armed with a brand new release, "Life After God," also on Brick Records. Moe Pope delivers solid boom bap hip hop for dedicated heads.

Tune in as both MCs drop by to chat about music and play some of their favorites...


Solar-Powered Electric Music Video Screening
Monday, July 12th, 2010, 9pm - Midnight
on
Sound and Safe with Trent
Civilian space exploration is still prohibitively expensive (for most of us), but intergalactic travel can be closely approximated by a simple journey to the East River on the evening of July 12th.

Join Solar One, Astralwerks Records, and WFMU's DJ Trent for a 100% solar-powered evening of electronic music videos of every vintage. Solar One is located on 23rd Street @ the East River.

If you can't make it in person, tune in to live audio and video streams at 91.1 in NYC, 90.1FM in the Catskills, and WFMU.org all over this planet. RAIN DATE: July 19th.


TP Orchestre Poly-Rythmo de Cotonou feature + Sol Okarina live
Saturday, July 10th, 2010, 6pm - 9pm
on
Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg
TP Orchestre Poly-Rythmo's scorching soul, rock, Afrobeat and vodou influenced, psychedelic tinged sound made them stars in Benin in the late '60s and early '70s. But they struggled to survive the country's economically challenging Marxist years. Now, with compilations of their '70s tracks on the Soundway and Analog Africa labels, they've suddenly become international stars. Their US debut concert at the Gerald W. Lynch Theater at John Jay College (as part of the annual Lincoln Center Festival) Sunday July 11 is one of the most highly anticipated shows of the summer. We'll get an introduction to Poly-Rythmo produced by Elodie Maillot of Radio France / RFI Musique, who has traveled extensively with the band.

Plus: From July 6-10, Spanish-speaking and bilingual artists will descend upon New York for the annual Latin Alternative Music Conference (LAMC). Among the conference highlights are the showcase concerts it spawns around town. Venezuela-born, Bogota-based singer Sol Okarina is among those making her NY debut this year at LAMC. She'll display her engaging blend of indie rock, cumbia, Caribbean and South American sounds as part of the multi-artist LAMC Acoustic Showcase at Le Poisson Rouge on Bleecker St., Thursday July 8. And she'll stop by FMU tonight for a solo performance and chat.

on The Evan "Funk" Davies Show

The Bay-area band Apache return to WFMU en route from a six-week European tour to a spot on the Burger Records Caravan Of Stars. Their raucous '70s glam-punk sound will treat you right if you're a fan of Starz, The Hollywood Stars, The Hollywood Brats, or even bands without "star" or "hollywood" in their name. Their new album Radical Sabbatical was just released on Burger. Catch them live on Thursday July 1 at Cake Shop, July 2 at Don Pedro's, July 3 at the Delancey, and many more dates - check here for the full list.

Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza (fill in for Monica)
Sunday, July 4th, 2010, 7pm - 9pm
on Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza

Fragments of sounds, musically combined in an ordered, random way, all happening in the moment you're listening, as Kenzo's live, improvised sound collage experiment peeks onto the air for a two-hour moment. Perhaps you'll participate with your sounds.


Fool's Gold Recorded Live at the Bell House
Saturday, July 3rd, 2010, 6pm - 9pm
on
Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg
A live set from LA's African-influenced Fool's Gold recorded by WFMU Sound Goddess Irene Trudel live at the Bell House in Gowanus, Brooklyn on February 19, 2010. The band's lead singer Luke Top was raised in Israel; that curious language you'll hear against buoyant South African and Ethiopian and Saharan style grooves is Hebrew. Plus keep an ear out at the end of the set for a guest appearance by members of Tinariwen, for whom Fool's Gold opened at Bell House. Fool's Gold will be back on tour in North America this month, returning to New York on Sunday afternoon July 25 at Central Park Summerstage on a stellar Africa-themed bill with Bassekou Kouyate & Ngoni Ba and Burkina Electric, before heading to Europe in August.


Live from Mama Buzz Cafe Oakland
Friday, July 2nd, 2010, 3pm - 6pm
on
Put The Needle On The Record with Billy Jam
TThe first in a two part set of July live remotes from Oakland, CA, WFMU will broadcast from Mama Buzz Cafe, a cafe, gallery, and events venue in the vibrant arts area of Oakland where the monthly Oakland Arts Murmur takes place this and every first Friday. The Bay Area artists Mochipet, DJ 4AM, Dawgisht & Naru Kwina, Mista B, and Deeandroid will each perform live.

Two Years on Welfare
Friday, July 2nd, 2010, Midnight - 3am
on Wm. Berger presents My Castle of Quiet

Two Years on Welfare's Glenn N. lists his artist location as Filthy, Pennsylvania, on his myspace page...but in a reality where Two Years on Welfare dictates the landscape, the "filthy" is offset and reinterpreted considerably by hypnotic, pulsating, eerie psychedelia. Bringing to mind a more meditative take on the Broken Flag catalog, TYoW haunt and vibrate like Skullflower or Ramleh on a more contemplative path. The newer tracks on TYoW's page reveal an affinity for horizontal landscaping, in the form of 10-min. chunks of levitating chill, and ominous, cinematic provocation. Since the first, two-track demo cassette, and "Sleep," TYoW's ghostly, enveloping contribution to the 2010 WFMU Marathon My Castle of Quiet premium compilation, this project's visit to the Castle has been eagerly anticipated. Wm. Berger catches Two Years on Welfare at the start of a summer mini-tour, with shows in Brooklyn, Easthampton, New Brunswick, home-base Philly, Baltimore and Richmond.


Secret Cities
Thursday, July 1st, 2010, Midnight - 3am
on
Night People
Stay up late for a session with North Dakota's own Secret Cities on Night People. Their debut record Pink Graffiti just out on Western Vinyl is sequenced Spector with snowflakes and strings. Boy and girl vocals, boy and girl instruments, boy and girl whistles! It's a parade, a float, a march, an awesome band from Fargo on Night People.


Soft Tags
Wednesday, June 30th, 2010, 9pm - Midnight
on The Evan "Funk" Davies Show

Soft Tags' latest release, the double CD Mathematical Monsters, garnered near-universal comparisons to early Clean and Go-Betweens, and we see no reason to buck that trend. We're also confident that it's the best album ever to be inspired by Benoit Mandelbrot. The Portland-based group is on tour across the USA, and as befitting a band that takes their inspiration from dreams, mathematicians and paranormal events they will be appearing at the Bell House in Brooklyn the very same night of this live set on WFMU! They'll also be playing at Cake Shop on June 27, and Death By Audio on the 29th. Check out myspace.com/softtags for complete tour info, and make sure you catch them in person and/or on the radio.


The Mcrackins
Wednesday, June 30th, 2010, 8pm - 9pm
on
Nardwuar The Human Serviette Show
An interview with The Mcrackins who have released over 250 songs on 70 different records, with at least 60 different record labels! Yes The Mcrackins truly are "different" , and the most prolific band ever from the Pacific Northwest!  Doot doola doot doo... doot doo!


RIAA
Wednesday, June 30th, 2010, 7pm - 8pm
on
Do or DIY with People Like Us
RIAA, the mashup/sound collage project of Los Angeles DJ/musician Mr. Fab, returns to DO or DIY for another exclusive mix. "The Kitchen of Tomorrow," an excerpt from the forthcoming epic "USA," will be featured, drawing on such sources as old industrial films, easy-listening records, and instructional records to humorously depict the changing role of women in American society.


Deep South
Tuesday, June 29th, 2010, 6pm - 7pm
on
Sportsy Talk with Bronwyn C.& Jim
Bronwyn and Jay's special guest will be "Deep South," chief of the Thunk Tank Palmetto State News Bureau, who will be phoning in his report on the South Carolina political scene, including Alvin Greene, Nikki Haley, Governor Sanford, and that guy in the cemetery with the hooker. Politics! This week on Thunk Tank.


Eric Lindley (Keili fills in for Noah)
Tuesday, June 29th, 2010, Midnight - 3am
on
Beastin' The Airwaves! with Keili
Hauntingly melodic singer-songwriter Eric Lindley is the second coming of Skip Spence. Let's hope he too does not lose his mind so we can all benefit from his immense talent for a long time to come.


Krista Muir
Monday, June 28th, 2010, 9am - Noon
on
Bob W.'s show
Montreal's Krista Muir (the real person behind the Lederhosen Lucil alter-ego) will be performing a live acoustic set with her ukulele on the program. Bob and Krista will also sample, compare and contrast bagels from Montreal and NYC. Krista performs live at Like the Spice (224 Roebling Street, Brooklyn) on Sunday June 27th and Fontana's Bar (105 Eldridge Street, Manhattan) on Wednesday June 30th.


Ilhan Ersahin's Istanbul Sessions
Saturday, June 26th, 2010, 6pm - 9pm
on
Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg
The acclaimed New York based Turkish-rooted saxophonist, record producer and club owner (NuBlu) Ilhan Ersahin brings in his Turkish / international jazz / improv combo Istanbul Sessions for a Jersey City session live on WFMU. Named as a nod to the improv / jam sessions that are a staple of Istanbul's lively jazz scene, Istanbul Sessions is a supergroup featuring some of Turkey's most in-demand studio musicians and pop star accompanists. The radio show is a tune-up for their big gig at Central Park Summerstage on Sunday afternoon July 3 as part of the ambitious multi-artist multi-genre Turkish concert, Istanbulive II. (They'll also warm up for Summerstage with two East Village club dates - at NuBlu on June 25 and Joe's Pub on June 29.)


The Reigning Sound
Saturday, June 26th, 2010, 3pm - 6pm
on The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T

The Reigning Sound make their triumphant return to the Cherry Blossom Clinic on June 26th! Their most recent album "Love and Curses" on In The Red was Terre T's number one record of 2009 and their current lineup - with WFMU's own Dave Amels on organ! - brings the rock as only they can. The last time Reigning Sound came through Greg Cartwright was fighting a massive flu, so who knows what surprises are in store for this visit? Check them out on Jun 19th at Southpaw in Brooklyn and Jun 20th at Maxwell's in Hoboken, but be sure to tune in to hear another classic Reigning Sound set on the CBC!


KILT
Friday, June 25th, 2010, Midnight - 3am
on Wm. Berger presents My Castle of Quiet

KILT are the duo of Raven Chachon and Bob Bellerue, sometimes expanded to a trio with Sandor Finta (though not for this session.) The apparent discord in their longish-form improvisations peels back to reveal undercurrents of tone and petri-dish polyrhythmic dancing. Raven plays a contact-mic'd snare drum, and the pressure/release of the drum head, and the reaction of the snares, are employed to dazzling effect. Bob Bellerue, a master of guitar-feedback/drone manipulation (who visited the Castle earlier this year as Diablo), reacts and/or leads Raven's snare moans down alleys of power and introspection. The whole thing just sounds f***in' great, with sheets of screeching, organic drone, mid-plane explosions and haunted moments of fuzzy-blanket wrap. KILT, indeed. KILT it good and dead.


Sally Seltmann
Thursday, June 24th, 2010, Midnight - 3am
on
Night People
Tune into Night People for a live session with Australian songwriter Sally Seltmann. Perhaps best known for co-writing Feist's recent hit "1-2-3-4," Mrs. Seltmann should be and shall be better known for her own heartfelt piano based koala soft rock. Her new record "Heart That's Pounding" is a small party in the afternoon and the diary entry that follows.


Scrantapalooza with Das Black Milk and Fulmarine Petrels
Wednesday, June 23rd, 2010, 9pm - Midnight
on The Evan "Funk" Davies Show

Here's your opportunity to hear two of the top acts from Scranton PA, aka the Electric City! Das Black Milk is making a return visit to WFMU, and their dark catchy postpunk-meets-90s sound will be pleasing to the ears of Bauhaus, Mudhoney, Joy Division and/or Nothing People fans. Their new album, Talk To Your Body, is out now. Das Black Milk are bringing along their brother band Fulmarine Petrels, who feature a distorted lo-fi garage-punk sound that combines elements of, say, The Oblivians and Thee Oh Sees. Catch both these bands live on Wednesday the 23rd, and check out leopardlibido.blogspot.com for more Scranton action, including free downloads!


Live at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater
Wednesday, June 23rd, 2010, 6pm - 7pm
on

The Music of Bill Dixon
Tuesday, June 22nd, 2010, 6am - 9am
on
The Long Rally with Scott McDowell
A good bulk of today's program will be dedicated to the music and odyssey of Bill Dixon, the great jazz trumpeter/bandleader/producer/educator/positive force who died on June 16th at the age of 84. Tune in for gems plucked from all corners of Dixon's discography in an effort to showcase the patience, reserve, invention, wit, and openheartedness of the his playing and composing.


A-Bones
Saturday, June 19th, 2010, 3pm - 6pm
on The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T

Don't miss the frantic rock n roll stylings of the A-Bones as they invade the WFMU studios performing selections from their latest long player "Not Now!" on Norton Records, (a Cherry Blossom Clinic Top Ten album of 2009) plus an array of their smash hits and surprises. Join the A-Bones on their Rocks Off Booze Cruise around Manhattan, Wed June 23rd, 7- 11PM on the Half Moon at Skyport Marina - 23rd and the FDR NYC.


Diamondsnake
Wednesday, June 16th, 2010, 9pm - Midnight
on The Evan "Funk" Davies Show

EFD kicks off his new time on the WFMU summer schedule with a bang - a headbang, that is. Diamondsnake began just a few short months ago, when Phil Costello (Satanicide, Valley Lodge) and Moby (Moby) began collaborating on some earworm-inducing glam-metal anthems. Their skull-crushing vision was fully realized with the addition of Tomato (Sound of Urchin) on attack drums, and Dave Hill (Valley Lodge, Walter Schreifels Band, funny person) who plays either bass or guitar, depending on what Moby feels like doing. (Dave mostly plays bass. Just sayin'.) The band has their first-ever gig on Thursday June 17 at the Highline Ballroom in NYC, but tune in the night before, Wednesday the 16th, to hear their world radio debut right here on WFMU! Even if you think you're not a fan of pop-metal you'll want to catch this set -- it's all the hooks and humor, with none of the hair. Don't miss it!


Sage Francis
Wednesday, June 16th, 2010, 8pm - 9pm
on
Nardwuar The Human Serviette Show
An interview with Providence, RI rapper Sage Francis! (Note: *new time* for the Nardwuar Show!) Doot doola doot doo... doot doo!


The Black Swans
Wednesday, June 16th, 2010, 6am - 9am
on
The John Allen Show
The Black Swans are a contemporary chicken eyed soul unit fronted by burgeoning storyteller Jerry DeCicca. Addressing role play, the anxieties of bed death, and loss and renewal, their odes reveal some high concept salvaging from Sid Selvedge to Sam Cooke to old gothic lady poets. They live in Columbus, Ohio. They have a new record Words Are Stupid on St. Ides/Secretly Canadian and now seems like a great time to play back this set they recorded for John Allen last year.


Jim Behrle
Tuesday, June 15th, 2010, 6pm - 7pm
on
Sportsy Talk with Bronwyn C.& Jim
This Tuesday, on the First Ever "Thunk Tank with Bronwyn and Jay" show, the Brainiacs welcome very special guest Jim Behrle. Although he's a well-known poet and former host of his own radio show on Boston's WBUR, Behrle is most infamous as the creator of "Kreepie Kats," the horrifying weekly comic strip that appeared on Gawker until the Authorities realized it was there. He's also a rabid sports fan, and will be joining Bronwyn and Jay for some Sportsy Talk this Tuesday at 6:00 PM on WFMU.


Mount Carmel
Tuesday, June 15th, 2010, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

Mount Carmel are the Columbus, Ohio trio of Matthew Reed, Patrick Reed, and Kevin Shubak, serving up total blues-bleed of Groundhogs and Peter Green worship with zero ironic pretentions and throttling rock power (almost outboogying Endless Boogie at the Charleston in Brooklyn the other night as well!). Stopping by on the way out of Philly for Brian's show today for an afternoon slide into an evening at the Lakeside Lounge on Avenue B and 10th Street (early!) Simple, pure, rawk salvation at hand.


Puttin' on the Ritz
Monday, June 14th, 2010, Midnight - 3am
on
Miniature Minotaurs with Kurt Gottschalk
Putttin' on the Ritz began as a duo of TV producer, comedian and author BJ Rubin and drummer Kevin Shea (of such bands as Talibam!, Mostly Other People Do the Killing and People). They've swollen their ranks to include horns and keyboards, and have taken on the entirety of the Velvet Underground's "White Light / White Heat." They will perform their version of the album in the final hours before the minotaur retreats into its cave. June 14, 12-3 am.


Tinariwen Recorded Live at the Bell House
Saturday, June 12th, 2010, 6pm - 9pm
on
Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg
A captivating two hour set by the fabulous hypnotic, bluesy, electric Sahara Desert Tuareg guitar band Tinariwen recorded by our illustrious technical guru Irene Trudel live at the Bell House in Gowanus, Brooklyn on February 19, 2010. (Irene also recorded the opening band Fool's Gold; their set will be aired later this summer.) Tinariwen will be on the road again in North America this summer, including a big show on Saturday afternoon June 26 at Central Park Summerstage on an amazing bill with Syria's Omar Souleyman and American Africa-philes Toubab Krewe - plus a return engagement at the comparatively more intimate Bell House on Sunday night June 27.


Superchunk
Saturday, June 12th, 2010, 3pm - 6pm
on The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T

Tune into the Cherry Blossom Clinic to hear an amazing live session from the one and only Superchunk! The legendary kings of indie rock are back and ready to reclaim their crown with the release of "Majesty Shredding" on Merge Records, their first new album in nine years. The new album is a guitar-heavy return to the glory days of mid-90s Superchunk, and this live session - which was recorded during the Primavera Sound festival during WFMU's two-day remote back in May (but was unaired until now!) serves as an amazing preview. The album doesn't drop til September 14, so get your fix this Saturday on the Cherry Blossom Clinic!


4th Annual Graffiti Special
Friday, June 11th, 2010, 3pm - 6pm
on
Put The Needle On The Record with Billy Jam
WFMU's 4th Annual Graffiti Special will feature such artists as SNOW from New Jersey's FX crew, Meres-One of the TD4 crew & overseer of the unique 5 Pointz outdoor graffiti gallery in Long Island City, and Demerock of both the Wallnuts and Vicious Styles crews who recently, in association with Gentrified, produced the "Jersey Burns" DVD. Other guests will include graffiti photo-journalists Jim & Karla Murray (whose books Burning New York and Broken Windows comprehensively & colorfully documented a full decade of NYC graffiti history) and Florian Gaag - director of the Polish graffiti themed feature film "Wholetrain." Popaganda artist Ron English and Weird NJ contributer Wheeler Antabanez will stop by the show that will also feature a forgotten 1992 interview with legendary slain Bay Area graffiti artist Mike "DREAM" Francisco.

She'll be airing bits of the interview, which suffered unfortunate audio glitches in it, and airing tracks from their brand new record "Lawless Darkness". The full interview will be posted on WFMU's Beware of the Blog on Monday June 14th.


Opponents
Wednesday, June 9th, 2010, 8pm - 11pm
on Wm. Berger presents My Castle of Quiet

OPPONENTS are, quite simply, one of a small handful of bands creating at the very forefront of contemporary electronics, making music that can't be easily defined (or dismissed) as "noise," "psychedelia" or "PE." It's all mushing together in gloriously appreciable ways, and OPPONENTS are a project currently operating at peak power. Their CDr on Obsolete Units, I Swarm With a Thousand Bees, is a killer-diller of analog whips, waves and pulsations, and heaven forbid, there's actually a melodic, or perhaps tonal, base to it all as well; beats too. OPPONENTS are early Kluster/Cluster through a grimy, Brooklyn-bloc filter. And as compelling as the new CD is, OPPONENTS' as-yet-unreleased jams continue to explore new territory that layers scary, modern, spiky punch atop Berlin-school throbs and mid-80s-style industrial maneuvers.


Sabbath Assembly
Wednesday, June 9th, 2010, 6am - 9am
on
The John Allen Show
"Restored to One" is a modern response to the musical activities of a cult known as The Process Church of the Final Judgment, who used music to spread their visions of Gnostic reconciliation in a time of cataclysmic change. Sabbath Assembly has re-charged the original hymns of The Process Church and worked them into moving renditions that unite the trinity of rock, psychedelic and gospel into one triumphant re-awakening. Sabbath Assembly features Jex Thoth (Jex Thoth) and Dave Nuss (NNCK). We'll hear some live tracks they recorded at FMU earlier this year, and Nuss and Thoth will discuss the project and preview songs from the record out later this month.

Brian is joined today by Ryan Martin of Dais Records/York Factory Complaint to dig out dusty boxes of found tapes old and new, discussing cassette culture starting in the late '70s post-industrial / synth realm and going through the '80s and '90s up until the deluged tape scene today. Playing avant Fluxus cassettes, artist recordings, tape manipulations, unheard dialogue, drone noise and warped field recordings. Things are going to get weird.

on
Put The Needle On The Record with Billy Jam
For this episode of Put The Needle On The Record, Billy Jam will take it back to the 1980's (and beyond) when his guests will include musical instrument maker Felix Visser, and authors Dave Tompkins and Jason Bitner. Bitner, co-founder of Found magazine and the editor of last year's popular anthology of nostalgic stories about mix tapes "Cassette From My Ex: Stories and Soundtracks of Lost Loves," recently launched a wonderfully engaging website (and possible future book) titled "How I Met Your Motherboard: Tales of Early Computing" that complies firsthand stories centered around such 1980's computers as Commodore 64s and Apple IIs. Meanwhile Dave Tompkins, author of the recently published, exhaustively researched "How To Wreck A Nice Beach: The Vocoder From World War II to Hip-Hop, the Machine Speaks," will talk on the topic of vocoders - an instrument that, while around for some decades, really came into its own in the 1980's. And phoning in from the Netherlands will be Felix Visser, the founder & president of the Dutch company Synton that in the 70's and 80's manufactured the Syntovox vocoders; a type of vocodor favored by Wendy Carlos among other musicians.

G Lucas Crane vs. Nonhorse
Wednesday, May 26th, 2010, 8pm - 11pm
on Wm. Berger presents My Castle of Quiet

G Lucas Crane's music sounds like a title bout. Like people pushing pianos at one another from opposite ends of the room, like WWII radio-pilot conversations interfering with a stack of crud-covered disco LPs. It's one man versus two cassette players, a mixer, a converted set of headphones, and a few pedals hit as often with elbows as with hands -- G Lucas Crane is no ordinary man. Nonhorse, Lucas' "adversarial image totem" is on the table, though, has excellent stats this season, and knows how to psych out his opponent -- a fierce competitor. Beauty, terror and ultimately release in a clutter of gorgeous chaos. In a bold publicity maneuver, Nonhorse has also released recordings on Baked Tapes, Abandon Ship Records and Obsolete Units.

Note: no disco records will be burned during this event. As a matter of fact, they'll be played on the air! And be sure to come out to the Release Party at The Bell House in Brooklyn the next night (Wednesday May 26).

Everybody Was In The French Resistance... Now!
Tuesday, May 18th, 2010, 11pm - 2am
on The Evan "Funk" Davies Show

This band was formed by Eddie Argos of Art Brut and Dyan Valdes of The Blood Arm to "correct the mistakes of pop songs past." As such, their new album is called Fixing The Charts (Cooking Vinyl), and includes such responses to past chart-toppers as "G.I.R.L.F.R.E.N. (You Know I've Got A)," "Hey! It's Jimmy Mack," and the song that fittingly tells the story of the band's origin, "Creeque Allies" (pronounced like the WWII alliance, not like the plural of "Alley"). The songs are just clever enough without being cloying, and will be enjoyed by fans of Art Brut, Soft Cell and pop music aficionados at large. Catch Everybody Was In The French Resistance... Now! live at Mercury Lounge on Wednesday May 12, and at Union Hall on Thursday the 13th as part of their US tour!


Arrington de Dionyso's Malaikat Dan Singa
Tuesday, May 18th, 2010, 9am - Noon
on Talk's Cheap with Jason Sigal

You may know Arrington de Dionyso from his post-punk-freak-folk group Old Time Relijun, or from his trance-inducing solo experimentations with overtone-singing, shruti-box, jaw harp, and Kadri Gopalnath-inspired bass clarinet. He also teaches workshops on "Unleashing the Voice", and plays in ESP-Disk's free-jazz quartet The Naked Future. His paintings offer a visual depiction of said future, where humans, animals, and angels live in naked, bestial harmony. Malaikat Dan Singha (K Records, 2009) is an album that melds all of these influences and more: Arrington's unleashed vocals are sung entirely in Indonesian, and may contain translations of William Blake and the Zohar. Arrington de Dionyso brings Malaikat Dan Singa on the road with a full band -- tour dates here. Tune in as they perform their visions of the future live on WFMU May 18th. Oh, and watch this video

Get ready to receive a good shellackin' of the musical kind when Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus and members of his Big Ten Inch Collective prove to a man that size most certainly does matter when it comes to gramophone records. In anticipation of their 78s-only DJ show at Brooklyn's Bell House on May 23, expect to hear jump blues, doo-wop, hillbilly, novelty, rock 'n' roll, R&B, blues, be-bop, swing and who knows what else, as long as it's pressed on a 10-inch. The revolutions -- except for those that turn at 78 per minute -- will not be radiocast.


Bassekou Kouyate & Amy Sacko + Burkina Electric
Saturday, May 15th, 2010, 6pm - 9pm
on
Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg
This is going to be an amazing summer for world music and especially African music in NYC. Tonight we get an early taste from two very innovative bands that will be making the summer scene:

First, an intimate visit with Bassekou Kouyate & Amy Sacko, husband and wife leaders of Bassekou Kouyate & Ngoni Ba. Kouyate took a traditional West African lute, known within his native in Mali as the ngoni, plugged it in, and made it the centerpiece of his band (which features several of them) and indeed a brand new musical genre.

Then, a full set from the equally visionary Burkina Electric, a truly unique African electric / avant garde hybrid: Charismatic singer Mai Lingani and guitarist Wende K. Blass from Burkina Faso team up with African-inspired Austrian avant garde percussionist / composer Lukas Ligeti and the Neu Deutche Welle (80s German "new wave") electro-avant-pop mastermind, Pyrolator (member of recently revived Fehlfarben, veteran of Der Plan and DAF and founder / director of the seminal label AtaTak).

Burkina Electric will share a Central Park Summerstage bill with Bassekou Kouyate and Ngoni Ba on Sunday afternoon July 25 (along w/ Fool's Gold), plus they'll be playing the Bang on a Can Marathon at the World Financial Center Winter Garden Sunday June 27. And scoring a rare summer trifecta they'll also hit Celebrate Brooklyn in Prospect Park on Thursday evening July 8, providing live accompaniment to Karole Armitage's African-inspired dance piece Itutu.

Steinski & Monica Lynch

on
Put The Needle On The Record with Billy Jam
Pioneering cut-and-paste, hip-hop recording artist & regular WFMU contributor Steinski, who in the early '80s along with Double Dee crafted the highly influential, sample-based, sound collage "Lessons" series, revisits the WFMU studios after returning to the States fresh from from his latest European tour for an interview and live studio set. Also in the studio will be WFMU DJ and former President of Tommy Boy Records Monica Lynch to talk about the history of one of hip-hop's most important record labels.


T.O.M.B.
Wednesday, May 12th, 2010, 8pm - 11pm
on Wm. Berger presents My Castle of Quiet

Self-described by one of their members as "noise strictly under the evolution and domain of metal," and that is indeed apt. Sonically, though, T.O.M.B. have a world of mystery within their sound that reaches into exceptionally dark realms, more so than many artists that could be described as "noise" or "black metal." Most often, T.O.M.B. sound like restless, angry spirits, wringing out eternity and screaming and scraping at the walls. Insistent percussion, provided by a contact-mic'd gravestone, is accompanied by frightening, distant synthesizer moans and dissonant tones, eerie rumbling, and the screams of the dead. Moments of the afterlife landscape are viewed in haunted contemplation. T.O.M.B. are the stuff of waking nightmares, and their Castle set is much anticipated.


Nardwuar vs. Crispin Glover!
Wednesday, May 12th, 2010, 7pm - 8pm

Valley Lodge
Tuesday, May 11th, 2010, 11pm - 2am
on The Evan "Funk" Davies Show

Power popsters extraordinaire Valley Lodge have the distinction of being the first EFD booking to come about as a direct result of Twitter! Sadly, details of the exchange are lost -- at least until the Library Of Congress gets that archive up and running. The band includes current and former members of Cobra Verde, Satanicide, Walt Mink, Sensefield, 2 Skinnee J's, Uptown Sinclair, and Tragedy (the world's greatest all-metal tribute to the Bee Gees). Their hooktastic songs are guaranteed to make fans of The Raspberries, New Pornographers and Cheap Trick stop what they're doing and turn up the volume. Their most recent album is Semester At Sea (Explosive). Don't miss this!


Big Troubles
Tuesday, May 11th, 2010, 9am - Noon
on Talk's Cheap with Jason Sigal

Big Troubles is the shoe-gazin' duo of Alex Craig and Ian Drennen from Ridgewood NJ. Live, they're joined by Sam Franklin (Fluffy Lumbers) and Luka Usmani, bringing thunderous drums and a wall of guitar noise to further electrify Big Troubles' whirling, reverb-drenched jangle-pop. Their debut 7'' on Blackburn Recordings is nearly sold out, but a new 7'' and a full-length LP are on the way from Olde English Spelling Bee. Big Troubles play Cake Shop in Manhattan on May 7th with Procedure Club, Sore Eros, and Alex Bleeker, and they play Brooklyn's Silent Barn on June 17.
