Dear Listener,

For this evening’s redefining of the word entertainment, the Inflatable Squirrel Carcass has invited nine fellow DJs to contribute five minutes of audio continuing the story begun by the person before them. ‘Tis a tale of lust and love, you are about to hear, murder and mayhem, 0s and 1s, rice and beans, fahrenheit and centigrade. ’Tis a brief history of a world (perhaps, this one).

Tune in from 12am–1am and embrace your inner trilobite.

The Inflatable Squirrel Caucus

P.S. It is hoped by all participants that said audio shall:
a) remain somewhat coherent over the course of 50 minutes or so
b) remain somewhat incoherent over the course of 50 minutes or so
c) none of the above
d) be successful enough so that we can consider doing an exquisite copse for Arbor Day

Brian Turner's show
The annual visit from our pal Tom Lax, bringing up yet another assortment of obscuro and extremely special 7" singles wax from Siltbreeze headquarters in Philadelphia. If you've checked out this special in past years you know that you will certainly be hearing a lot of DIY/post-punk and general oddball stuff you will probably not hear anywhere else (and see as well, as we will be posting the sleeve art on the playlist page live). Not to be missed!

Dustin Wong & Takako Minekawa
Tuesday, August 22nd, 2017, Noon - 3pm
on Liz Berg's show

It's a collaboration made in experimental pop heaven: Dustin Wong (former guitarist of Baltimore's Ponytail and a fabulous solo artist in his own right) is teamed up with the legendary Takako Minekawa (great solo work along with collaborations with Kahimi Karie, Cornelius, Ryuichi Sakomoto, etc) for a third album release, entitled "Are Euphoria," recorded in Tokyo and released on Thrill Jockey this year. Dustin Wong's dodging, weaving guitar loops play tag with Takako Minekawa's beats, electronics, and vocals, leaving you dizzy, lightheaded, and in a happier place. We'll catch up with them for a live set during a rare U.S. visit, and you should also jump at the opportunity to see them live at Baby's All Right in Brooklyn on Saturday, August 19th.

Burn It Down! with Nate K.
One of the most exciting rock songwriters to emerge from the more obscure corners of the American indie underground of late, David Nance brought his talents to Montgomery Hall a few weeks back. Equal parts ragged-glory guitar heroics and avant rust belt eccentricities, Nance's live performances take the tracks from his new album Negative Boogie to new heights.

Tuesday, August 15th, 2017, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

W-2 are the duo of Sam Weinberg and Flying Luttenbachers member Chris Welcome, who for the last couple of years have been purveyors of the more splattery end of Brooklyn's DIY/No-Jazz movement. On tenor sax and synthesizer respectively, W-2 blur the lines of sound in an almost electroacoustic realm, making their instrumentation sound like anything but its traditional application. Their latest release is an LP on Astral Sounds entitled Fanatics.

Apache PLUS Andy Blade of Eater PLUS Slick!
Saturday, August 12th, 2017, 3pm - 6pm
Todd-o-phonic Todd's show
Being a band that smokes their weight in weed and spends more time in the hospital than the studio can take its toll. Apache knows it won’t last forever, but after watching them play, you will quickly realize THEY DON’T CARE. Like musicians on the Titanic, they’re going down, playing to the cold bitter end. Long story short, Apache is the cockroach family in your floorboards. Try and kill them all you want, but honestly you are probably better off moving or setting the building on fire. The Bay Area bozos rip it up live on the Todd-O-Phonic Todd show.

Eater were one of the first wave of British punk bands, beginning their career in the golden year of 1976. Acts like The Buzzcocks, The Damned and Sham 69 opened for them. They received a lot of notoriety for being the youngest band on the block (their ages at the time were 14-17). The band's second single "Thinking Of The U.S.A." is classic. Eater appeared on the Live At The Roxy compilation alongside The Adverts, Wire, X-Ray Spex and more. Andy will be performing a set of Eater songs backed by an all-star band featuring J. Mascis and members of Daddy Longlegs at The Meltasia festival at The Blackthorne Resort in East Durham, New York September 8th through the 10th.

Rising from the ashes of Glitz, Slick! is the nastiest band in the Bay Area, ejaculating onto the scene with the simultaneous explosion of the King Rocker record label in late 2015. This band blasts melodies that shake spurs on the dance floor (not unlike that of The Sweet, Slade, or Alice Cooper) and shock the San Andreas fault line.

Friday, August 11th, 2017, 9pm - Midnight
Daniel Blumin's show
In the beginning, there was the gloriously theatrical post-punk fierceness of Bauhaus. Then came the darkly playful, genre-bending, experimental pop of Tones on Tail and the sometimes-dreamy, sometimes-blistering psychedelic glam of Love and Rockets. This summer, two of the founding members of all three era-defining bands, Daniel Ash & Kevin Haskins, have returned to the stage as Poptone! Playing tracks from throughout their storied career with a special focus on the Tones on Tail material, most of which has not been performed live since 1984 in any guise, the trio (with Diva Dompe on bass) is spectacular! Take a break from the Batcave and tune in for a performance and interview! Bubblemen not included.

See Poptone live on Thursday, August 3rd, at the Stone Pony and Saturday, August 5th, at Irving Plaza.

They'll talk about how that became the trademark of this label and Jem has a great playlist of under recognized bands, mostly from Australia. Jem will be on at 1pm, and the show, as always starts at noon!

Wednesday, August 9th, 2017, Midnight - 3am
on Wm. Berger presents My Castle of Quiet

Underground metal can be a daunting landscape—what's merely good, and what's great? The proof is in the hearing, of course—in intense, impassioned performance, and of course songs. The songs have to be mammoth. Call them Powerviolence, Grind, Punk—you'll hear elements of all that and more in SCREECH's sound. Three young men from NYC, who in Autumn 2016 dropped their awesome full length, The Color Greed, SCREECH grace My Castle of Quiet & WFMU with a live, in-studio set on the Aug. 8/9 program.

Jonah Parzen-Johnson
Tuesday, August 8th, 2017, 9pm - Midnight
on Samantha's show

New York City-based saxophonist Jonah Parzen-Johnson joins Samantha to perform a live set of solo saxophone with analog synthesizer. A Chicago native, Jonah’s experimental style owes a debt to that city's saxophone legacy, but his devotion to a quirky, almost vocal approach places him in new territory altogether. He has meticulously constructed a world of warm memories remembered in a cold present, melding the evocative feeling of folk music with the power of the sonic explorer.

The Rubinoos (Tommy Dunbar & Jon Rubin)
Tuesday, August 8th, 2017, 7pm - 8pm
on Morricone Island with Devon E. Levins

If you didn't get enough of "Beserkley" power pop legends The Rubinoos with recent shows at Monty Hall and Union Pool (their first in NYC since 1979, broadcasted live by Joe Belock), you're in luck. Co-founders Tommy Dunbar and Jon Rubin join Devon to discuss the band's film and television soundtrack influence and how they composed the main title for "The Revenge of the Nerds" and other music for the "Bachelor Party," "Once Bitten," "Paradise Motel" and "Jailbird Rock" soundtracks, amongst others. The band marked its 45th Anniversary in 2015 with a new CD, 45 and collection of thirteen new recordings. In 2016, Wild Honey Records re-released The Rubinoos' first three albums on vinyl in a 3-LP gatefold package.

Alejandro Jodorowsky
Tuesday, August 8th, 2017, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

A rare, in-person interview between Brian and one of the most iconoclastic and psychedelic filmmakers in the world: Chilean-born, 87-year-old, Alejandro Jodorowsky. Touted as godfather of midnight movies with the advent of 1970's El Topo and later epics The Holy Mountain and Santa Sangre, Jodorowsky talks to WFMU right on the heels of the initial release of his brand new film Endless Poetry. This is the second of three installments in which the director chronicles his own life and upbringing among Chilean poets and artist friends, as well as his tumultuous family relationships. Throughout his life, Jodorowsky has approached every multi-faceted artistic avenue with ferocity, passion and defiance; studying mime with Marcel Marceau and enacting surrealist plays and events during his tenure in Paris, then migrating to Mexico to begin his journey into filmmaking, tarot, comic art, and psychomagic. His near-miss in creating an otherworldly screen rendition of Dune was well-recounted in a recent critically-heralded documentary. He even has an asteroid named after him. Decades of stunted distrubution due to hassles with Allen Klein's Abkco organization finally ceased in 2007 when his movies became majorly available again, and finally Jodorowsky's mindblowing aesthetic has seeped into more mainstream consciousness and inspired a whole new breed of artists and fans worldwide. Meanwhile, he has simultaneously loaded the decks for a myriad of current and future projects, which will all be discussed today. Also, there will be talk of music from his films, most recently composed by his son Adan (who also portrays his father in the new Endless Poetry).

Gary U.S. Bonds PLUS Billy Bragg
Saturday, August 5th, 2017, 3pm - 6pm
Todd-o-phonic Todd's show
Buy U.S. Bonds! Gary U.S. Bonds talks to Todd-O-Phonic Todd about his amazing career. Gary's records like "Quarter To Three", "School Is Out", "New Orleans" and "I Wanna Holler" are among the most raucous and joyous singles ever. He will be performing the first weekend in October at The Ponderosa Stomp in New Orleans, backed by Los Straitjackets.

Billy Bragg visits Todd-O-Phonic Todd to discuss his new book, "Roots, Radicals and Rockers: How Skiffle Changed The World." Skiffle was a politically aware working class sensation of 1950's Britian that influenced so much of what was to come musically. Almost unknown in the States, this passionate and well-researched books aims to change that. Billy is of course well known for his own musical career.

Dial-A-Poem (Mark V. fills in for Rich)
Saturday, August 5th, 2017, Midnight - 3am
Tenderness Junction with Mark V.
Mark V.'s Tenderness Junction (the Connection Edition) focuses on all the ways the telephone, radio, and poetry seek and swerve around connection.

Other tracks and transmissions include selections from Giorno Poetry Systems releases, interviews, poetry recordings from a range of archives, and a growing bibliography of audio that uses the telephone as a hook such as Jean Cocteau's The Human Voice performed by Ingrid Bergman where a woman tries desperately to connect with her lover over the telephone.

Daniel Blumin's show
Argentinian artist Alan Courtis, who last performed at WFMU in 2001 as a founding member of Reynols, and has collaborated with the likes of Merzbow, Jim O'Rourke, and Pauline Oliveros, joins forces with founding member of Volcano the Bear and Gospel of Mars, Aaron Moore, as they play their first WFMU session together. With hundreds of releases between them including several as a duo, their set promises to be one full of vari-speed tape loops, soundy guitar manipulations, cracked electronics, off-kilter percussion, interstellar improv, and saucy experimentation! Don't miss! See Alan Courtis/Cyrus Pireh/Aaron Moore live at Secret Project Robot on August 2nd. Then see Alan Courtis again at Trans-Pecos on Sunday, August 6th.

HC welcomes Olympia screamers XYLITOL & Reykjavik shredders DAUÐIFLYN for an explosive 2-for live set. Xylitol brings us acidic hardcore punk beats with the most spastic & vicious female vocals on the planet. Dauðyflin comes from one of the smallest DIY scenes in the West, Iceland, but that doesn’t keep them from producing insane feminist punk of the highest quality. Their latest release on Iron Lung, Ofbeldi, mashes together aspects of noise & hardcore to form a genre-expanding brand of punk. This is the soundtrack to today’s decline of western civilization.

Catch both bands on tour throughout the US this summer; all dates listed here along with audio from their split tour cassette!

The Voice of Suka: Maria Pomianowska Brings Extinct Polish Fiddles Back to Life!
Saturday, July 29th, 2017, 6pm - 9pm
on Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg

Maria Pomianowska, a classically trained Polish cellist, found that diving into fiddle traditions around the world freed her from classical music's constraints. But her explorations also brought her right back home, where she discovered the suka, a Polish fiddle that had completely disappeared. It turns out the suka has a lot in common with fiddles Maria plays from other countries. So with the help of a master luthier, she brought this forgotten instrument back to life. The result: A beautiful album with her her ensemble, ReBorn,called The Voice of Suka. Plus prestigious US debut concerts as part of the Lincoln Center Festival (earlier this week), and, this Wednesday (August 2), a free live-video-streamed performance at the Kennedy Center in DC. And most prestigious of all - Maria Pomianowska and ReBorn make their Garden State debut right here on WFMU!

PRONOUNCER: Maria Pomianowska = MAHR-yuh / Pohm-yah-NOVE-skah

Wednesday, July 26th, 2017, 3am - 6am
on What Was Music? with Marcel M

Statiqbloom is a dark, hallucinogenic trip through hard dance beats, haunting electronics and disorienting vocals pulsating into a raw vision reminiscent of early industrial and EBM sounds of the past. The Brooklyn based duo is not just a nod to a former time, however - one must be absolutely modern.. as is Statiqbloom.

Old Codger with Courtney T. Edison
The Old Codger, whose radio career at WFMU began in 1928, fills in for the Antique Phonograph Music Program on Tuesday July 25th from 8–9pm (Eastern). His music is archaic, his mic breaks crude, and his manners are toxic. His bile is so pure a sample is kept under a bell jar in the National Institute of Standards. Tune in July 25th at 8pm Eastern to catch a whiff of one of Western Civ's worst role models. The music will redeem this broadcast, somewhat.

Evie Sands
Friday, July 21st, 2017, 3pm - 6pm
Sophisticated Boom Boom with Sheila B.
Dusty Springfield once called Evie Sands her “favorite female singer.” She also found favor with musical legends like Gladys Knight and Barbara Streisand as well as indie darlings’ Beth Orton, Beck, and Belle & Sebastien, all who covered her blue-eyed soul songs. Evie Sands had a flawless 60s catalog, and cut the first versions of monster hits like “I Can’t Let Go” and “Angel Of the Morning.” She scored her biggest hit with “Any Way That You Want Me” in 1969, and then evolved into a guitarist, songwriter, and producer in the 70s. In anticipation of her upcoming headline appearance at the Ponderosa Stomp, October 5-7th in New Orleans, Evie will speak to Sheila B. about her earliest records, the unfortunate circumstances surrounding her near-hit single “Take Me For A Little While,” and the evolution from 60s soul singer to songwriter and producer.

He will be live, so listeners will be able to ask him questions via the comments board. Tombs' music is hard to classify, and over their progression, they have been "labeled" anything from Post Rock to Black Metal, Goth and Industrial. Mike will clue us in on the growth of the band's sound, we'll definitely hear some cuts from the new record and Mike will dip into a playlist of favorites!

Old Codger with Courtney T. Edison
The Old Codger, who spins 78 rpm records "like they're going outta style," fills in for the Antique Phonograph Music Program on Tuesday July 18th from 8–9pm Eastern. The Codger, who makes rare appearances on the WFMU airwaves, is a nasty piece of work made up of many smaller pieces of nastiness.

Gwilly Edmondez
Monday, July 17th, 2017, 6pm - 7pm
on Do or DIY with People Like Us

Gwilly Edmondez is all over the place yet usually in the wrong place at the right time. As an improvisor and recording artist he tries to play as often as possible with anyone who’s game, or solo if no one is about. What he uses mostly is his voice, but is always searching for things to go with it, like samples, tapes and beats. Anything could happen, which is why Gwilly prefers to act at the very fringes of proper. He has collaborated with all sorts of people but his primary non-solo projects at the moment are YEAH YOU (with Elvin Brandhi), Kleevex (with Faye MacCalman) and Impossibility Knox (with Odie Ji Ghast and sometimes THF Drenching).

Champagne Superchillin

Marc Johnson
Monday, July 17th, 2017, 9am - Noon
on Surface Noise with Joe McGasko

This year saw the reissue of a neglected folk-pop classic: Marc Johnson's Years. Released in 1972 when Marc was only 21 years old, the album was atypical for its day in its emphasis on arrangements and texture over the sparse, singer-songwriter template of the James Taylors of the time. The album didn't sell and Marc wouldn't be heard from again for almost 20 years, when he returned with the power-pop classic 12 in a Room. Today on Surface Noise, we hear from both sides of Marc Johnson, the folkie and the power-popper, in a live set and interview recorded exclusively for the show.

A Tribute to St. John Coltrane
Monday, July 17th, 2017, 3am - 6am
Circle Time with Mark R.
On July 17, 1967, the world lost one of its true musical giants, a revolutionary in every way--physical, spiritual, emotional--when John Coltrane passed away at the age of 43 from liver cancer. Our July 17th edition of Circle Time will be a three-hour tribute to a person many believe was the greatest virtuoso musician of the 20th century, regardless of genre. While a mere three hours show barely allows us to scratch the surface of Trane's immense and diverse catalogue, we'll touch on his early days with Miles Davis, some of his most important recordings with the "classic" quartet, and his later, wide-ranging experiments in pure sound exploration.

Paíto and the Gaiteros of Punta Brava - Keeping Afro-Colombian Traditions Alive
Saturday, July 15th, 2017, 6pm - 9pm
on Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg

Sixto "Paíto" Silgado carries on traditions born in palenques - settlements started by escaped slaves on Colombia's Atlantic coast. He's master of the "Gaita Negra" - black "gaita" style. (The gaita is a traditional end-blown flute.) Paito lives in an isolated village and still thinks of himself as a farmer. He didn't start recording and touring until well into his 60s. But when he did, people took notice: Paito’s 2006 debut album Gaita Negra was selected by Semana magazine as one of the 25 most important albums in the history of Colombian music. Don't miss this rare live session with a true cultural treasure, Paíto and the Gaiteros of Punta Brava!

Todd-o-phonic Todd's show
Pop purveyor Marshall Crenshaw hangs out with Todd-O-Phonic Todd to play some of his favorite records and chat about his illustrious career as musician, DJ, and fan. This one is going to be a treat!

Los Vigilantes are a screaming rock'n'roll band hailing from San Juan. One listen to the live set they will be performing on Todd's show will display beyond a doubt why they are the greatest Puerto Rican musical export since The Sunsets of "Theme One" fame. Don't miss their great Slovenly releases.

Saturday, July 15th, 2017, Midnight - 3am
Inflatable Squirrel Carcass with Rich Hazelton
Just in time for Bastille Day, Midnight Matinee lets them eat cake on the airwaves with Less Miserable.

At the stroke of midnight on Saturday July 15th on Rich Hazelton's The Inflatable Squirrel Carcass. WARNING: Russell Crowe sings; we can't help that.

Ánde Somby
Friday, July 14th, 2017, 9pm - Midnight
Daniel Blumin's show
Having performed both traditional and original yoiks since 1974, in 2016, Ánde Somby released the stunning Yoiking with the Winged Ones (Ash International), an LP produced by famed sound artist and former member of Cabaret Voltaire Chris Watson. On the album, Somby pushes his voice as sounds of animals howling, wailing, and moaning come to life in his mesmerizing yoiks. For centuries yoiking, an element of pre-Christian Sámi culture, was condemned and banned as attempts were made to Christianize the Sámi people, but yoiking has survived not only this effort but also the cultural suppression and policies of forced assimilation of the Sámi. Tune in as Somby visits WFMU to yoik and to talk about the culture of the Sámi, the northernmost indigenous people of Europe!

You can also catch Ánde Somby live at the free Prismatic Park events from July 11th to the 16th at Madison Square Park!

Nickel and Dime Radio with $mall ¢hange
For more than 15 years Borka has kept himself very busy doing a number of things music related. He co-runs rx:tx, an underground beats label from mostly regional artists. He's also part of a three men ex-yugoslav digging expedition called Tetkine Radosti that unearths jazz, funk and rock gems from the former socialist homeland. His band is called Jimmy Barka Experience, a two dj's and a drummer combo playing a collage of all sorts of funk, breaks, rock and afro sounds. He also produces beats for MCs and works at two radio stations. This dude makes me feel mad lazy. He'll be playing some serious 'Yugo' nuggets + beats and pieces.

Matte Black
Wednesday, July 12th, 2017, 3am - 6am
on What Was Music? with Marcel M

Brooklyn heavy psych rockers Matte Black deliver all the trippy, fuzzy goodness you'd expect from the genre, but unlike a lot of their peers, they keep things routed in a concise song structure with catchy hooks and melodies. Dropping by WFMU for the first time, we'll be hearing a lot of new material off of their forthcoming album. Not to be missed for fans of all that is heavy and psychedelic.
