Roy Harper
Friday, October 17th, 2008, 3pm - 6pm
on
Put The Needle On The Record with Billy Jam
Eccentric and often reclusive, influential British singer/songwriter Roy Harper qualifies as a "musician's musician" having being consistently revered - in the decades since he released his 1967 debut - by such fellow artists as Led Zeppelin who wrote "Hats Off to Roy Harper," Pink Floyd who invited him to sing lead on "Have a Cigar" from Wish You Were Here, Kate Bush with whom he collaborated several times including on his 1990 album "Once," and Joanna Newsom who cited Harper's 1971 album Stormcock as an inspiration for her album "Ys." Consequently, last September Newsom invited Harper to support her at the Royal Albert Hall in London when Harper performed the album "Stormcock" in its entirity. Roy Harper will speak on WFMU by phone from Europe.

Chandeliers
Tuesday, October 14th, 2008, 9am - Noon
on Talk's Cheap with Jason Sigal

Chandeliers drink the same Chicagoland water that hydrates fellow hyperrhythmic abstract electronic pop groups like Mahjongg and Lazer Crystal. This water turns the vibraphone of late-90s Chicago post-rock into a synth, and adds a phat trigger to every drum. Chandeliers' debut album The Thrush was recently released on Pickled Egg (UK), and on the group's own Obey Your Brain imprint (co-run by Griffin of Icy Demons, also home to Man Man and Need New Body). Tune in to hear Chandeliers refract light in the WFMU live room like a warped disco ball.

Sunday, October 12th, 2008, 10pm - Midnight
on Stochastic Hit Parade / A440 with Bethany Ryker

For the first time since the show began, the Stochastic Hit Parade features a live performance of Xenakis' stochastic music. What's that you say? By definition, a stochastic process is one that is unprovable by theory....random, in other words. Xenakis  (an architect, composer and all-around genius-type) used computer algorithms, game theory and algebra to generate random sequences of notes. The JACK string quartet comes to WFMU's studio to perform all four of Xenakis' string quartets, including St/4-1,080262, one of Xenakis' emblematic stochastic works.


Steven R. Smith
Sunday, October 12th, 2008, Midnight - 3am
on

Smith, a member of the fabled West Coast Jewelled Antler collective and bands such as Thuja, Mirza, Ulaan Khol & Hala Strana, rarely performs live in a solo setting, so do not miss this treat recorded especially for WFMU. Once described as Blixa Bargeld covering Swell Maps instrumentals, Smith traverses the worlds of folk, improvisation, psych and drone, and this first visit to WFMU finds Smith on a sparse lo-fi cosmic journey into the big night sky. Check it out & look for the second Ulaan Khol album to be released on Soft Abuse in December.

Dennis is also the subject of the new documentary, "Of All The Things," about his Beatles-like celebrity status in the Philippines. We'll also get the dirt on recently deceased musicians when obituary writer Phast Phreddie Patterson checks in, and we'll find out what #1 hit song has been left in Michael's Mailbox!

Takka Takka
Wednesday, October 8th, 2008, 11pm - 2am
on The Long Rally with Scott McDowell

Local indie-rock guys Takka Takka come by to play a set of tunes from their latest album, Migration. They've ditched the rootsy Lou Reed stylings of their debut for a burbling understatement of interlocking guitars, ethereal synths, and overlapping rhythms, casually informed by Philip Glass, Balinese gamelan, and Afropop.

Since then, NWW has confounded critics and listeners alike, both pioneering and mining the areas of improvisation, Krautrock-influence, electroacoustic experiments and more with unparalleled sense of invention and quite often humor. The shifting group's enduring central figure, Steven Stapleton, gives Brian a rare radio interview via phone today from his Irish goat farm, talking about NWW past, present and future.

The Sun City Girls ceased to be last year when the trio's Charles Gocher shuffled off this mortal coil, leaving behind brothers Alan and Rick Bishop and countless hours of amazing sounds through their decades of activity. The Bishops paid homage to Charlie this summer on a US tour which opened each night with a screening of some of their lost compadre's fantastic films, then, as the Brothers Unconnected, regaled crowds with two hours of acoustic Sun City Girls songs drawn from their entire 27-year history. Today, join Brian as he broadcasts the duo's June 22nd performance from NYC's Knitting Factory and say so long to Charlie and the Girls.


Matt Wolf, Director of Arthur Russell documentary "Wild Combination"
Monday, September 22nd, 2008, 8pm - 11pm
on Sound and Safe with Trent

Experimental film director Matt Wolf originally wanted to make an expressionistic account of Arthur Russell's life and music, but then he met Russell's parents and boyfriend and a new scope emerged. While there's still a lot of art in the film, like Wolf running through cornfields with a VHS camera in Russell's native Iowa, Wild Combination is very much a historical document. Phillilp Glass, Allen Ginsberg, Russell's parents, and onetime AR boyfriend Tom Lee (among others) take time in front of the camera to shed light on a brilliant musician who combined and altered the courses of dance and avant-garde music in New York in the 70's and 80's. Matt will talk about and play clips from Wild Combination, which will run beginning Friday 9/26 at the IFC Center in New York and the ICA in London - check the website for screenings in other cities.

on The Evan "Funk" Davies Show

Crom
Tuesday, September 16th, 2008, 3pm - 6pm
on
Brian Turner's show
The grindcore kings of Los Angeles take time out from obsessing over Glenn Danzig's house to book a bonafide East Coast tour and stop by Brian's show. For the uninitiated, this band gets a heavy goofus tag for all their Arctic-warrior, sword-wielding, cocaine-sniffing album artwork, ridiculous lowbrow culture samples and, well, generally limited attention span. But when they crank and get things going they create some of the most chaotic, freeform metal out there. Epic, furious blasts of the heavy and classic vein today from a bunch of guys who are true students of all forms of metal.

on Liz Berg's show

Angular, raspy, garbage rockers Mors Ontologica make their 2nd visit to WFMU as part of a short visit to the NYC area.

Sunday, September 14th, 2008, 9pm - Midnight
on
Stochastic Hit Parade / A440 with Bethany Ryker
Saxophonist Tim Berne, guitarist Nels Cline, and drummer Jim Black - three iconoclastic masters of creative improvised music - have all played with each other in various contexts (including a good ten + year run for Black as the drummer in Berne's quartet Bloodcount). This week, though, marks their first meeting as a trio, in a set of improvisations that should be a natural fit for their mutually rugged, driving playing styles, if not a complete coup given their nearly incompatible schedules. Drop everything and tune in, as it could be another twenty years before they play together again.


Crystal Stilts
Saturday, September 13th, 2008, 9pm - Midnight
on
Choking On Cufflinks with Michael Goodstein
Formed in the prolific musical environments of North Brooklyn and the now late NYC record store Rocks in Your Head, Crystal Stilts began as a duo, making stripped-down, moody pop songs. The band has fleshed out their sound with a full line-up and has developed into a live force to be reckoned with - bringing to mind the well-loved UK/Kiwi pop axis of Creation/Cherry Red/Flying Nun (think the Smiths, House of Love, Doublehappys, and Felt), as well as 60's staples like the Velvet Underground's third record and Detroit legends, the Index. Crystal Stilts are one of those rare bands who can capture the reflective end-of-summer sound.

Saturday, September 6th, 2008, 9pm - Midnight
on
Choking On Cufflinks with Michael Goodstein
The new darlings of the music blog world, the Summer of 2008 will be remembered as having belonged to the Vivian Girls. The scarcely one-year-old workaholic New York City/New Jersey trio have completed two full tours, released three records, including their debut full length, and emerged as the brightest hope in the now vibrant Indie/Noise Pop scene. Their reverb-drenched pop sound combines elements of the classic C86 sound (Shop Assistants, Jesse Garon & the Desperados, Bubblegum Splash, etc.), the American bands who loved it (Black Tambourine), while maintaining an invigorating contemporary rawness. Their self titled debut full length, which sold out hours after release will be reissued on In the Red in September.
