And Chapel Hill's Spider Bags have added a Minutemen-like punk to their shambling brand of countrified rock over the last few years and their new album "Shake My Head" is a straight-up classic. So be sure to tune in to the Cherry Blossom Clinic to check out two of the best bands in the land!

Wednesday, September 19th, 2012, Noon - 3pm
Duane Train
This coming Wednesday afternoon, Duane pay's tribute to the genius of Seminal NYC Disco producer, DJ and remixer Walter Gibbons. Like his peer Arthur Russell, Gibbons leftfield percussive heavy, dubbed out remixes of artists ranging from Loleatta Holloway, Strafe and Clark Sisters are some of the most influential Dance Cuts ever made. But his influence on modern leftfield Dance bands/producers like LCD Soundsystem, Metro Area and Hot Chip has made his work worth reexamining again. Duane and special guest DJ Prince Language (No comprendo, Negroclash) will devote a full three hours to Gibbon's productions and the groups who have gained inspiration from him.

Wednesday, September 19th, 2012, 3am - 6am
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.

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
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.

Apache Dropout / Pow Wows
Saturday, September 15th, 2012, 3pm - 6pm
The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T
Clinic welcomes TWO bands live to WFMU: Apache Dropout and also Pow Wows! Newly minted Trouble in Mind recording artists Indiana's Apache Dropout will be swinging by the Cherry Blossom Clinic to grace listeners with some tunes from their new full-length Bubblegum Graveyard. Think Nuggets-style garage, hard R&B, psych, punk, and, yes indeed, bubblegum! 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! Pow Wows are on tour to support their fantastic LP "Nightmare Soda" (Get Hip) and will be playing with Paul Collins at the Parkside in NYC on Friday 9/14 and at Don Pedro's on Saturday 9/15 w/ Tunnel of Love.

Susan Cowsill
Saturday, September 15th, 2012, 11am - 1pm

We’ll find out about the group's unusual and often tragic story and their current tour – which brings them to NYC’s B.B. Kings on September 17th.

Composer/Conductor Petr Kotik and Composer Bunita Marcus
Friday, September 14th, 2012, 3pm - 6pm
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.

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!

Thursday, September 13th, 2012, 7pm - 8pm

on Distort Jersey City with Reed Dunlea

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.

Has the music blogosphere's golden age already passed us by?

Casey Rae joins the Free Music Archive's Jason Sigal and a panel of music bloggers past & present—including Matthew Perpetua (Fluxblog, Buzzfeed), Michael McGregor (ex-Chocolate Bobka), Emilie Friedlander (Ad Hoc, ex-Pitchfork's Altered Zones) and Doug Schulkind (WFMU's Mining the Audio Motherload)—to discuss the state of the music blogosphere.

David Bromberg
Monday, August 27th, 2012, Noon - 3pm

It all started with an unexpected solo slot on stage at the Isle of Wight Festival for David Bromberg.

Since then David has, as his bio notes, "...played with everyone, he’s toured everywhere, he can lead a raucous big band or hold an audience silent with a solo acoustic blues." David Bromberg is playing three nights later in the week at City Winery, but managed to make time to stop at WFMU for a live set on Irene's show.

Distort Jersey City with Reed Dunlea
The future of NYC punk is here. Shoxx are the band that you should be listening to on December 12, 2012 if you know what I'm saying. Elise from Brain F≠ says "Shoxx are old dudes with long hair that play punk music but they're really good at their instruments and it sounds like 'mah-mah-mah-mah-mah-mah.' " If you thought Pollution was the best band ever, then it would be pretty hard to not be psyched on their guitar player and drummer starting a new band. Nomos was a decent band as well. Don't sleep on this, as their demo tapes are just about gone. Shoxx NYC 2012. True freaks only.

Allan Fraser
Saturday, August 11th, 2012, 6am - 9am
Shrunken Planet with Jeffrey Davison
Allan Fraser, as half of the folk duo Fraser and DeBolt, released two albums on Columbia in 1971 and 1973. Despite rave reviews and touring the music circuit, the records sold only modestly, eventually falling into obscurity. Neither of the Fraser and DeBolt records has had an official reissue, but they have gained greater attention and a larger number of devoted fans in recent years. Their debut is simply one of the finest records to emerge from that era, and retains the ability to startle with its daring and its beauty. Daisy DeBolt and Allan Fraser went their separate ways after the second release, pursuing different avenues in the music world. As is the case with many Canadian artists, they were very well-known in their native country and less so in the United States. Fraser spoke with us by phone from his home in Montreal.

As of late, he also has under his belt a collaboration LP with Robert Pollard under the name Lifeguards, and co-wrote and recorded with Sally Crewe for a Sally Crewe And The Sudden Moves EP last year ("Transmit/Recieve"). It's likely you'll hear some of his music for the period previous, so tune in at noon, hear Doug at 1pm! Listeners are encouraged to ask Doug questions via the live playlist.
