Foster Care
Wednesday, November 21st, 2012, 3am - 6am
Distort Jersey City with Reed Dunlea
This week we get a live set from NYC's Foster Care. This band plays in more of the NYC garage rock scene, but their sound might fit in a little better as fast and sloppy punk more than anything else. Featuring members of Ex-Humans and other New York rock and roll acts. Check out their awesome recent LP "Bad Vibe City" on Jackshack Records (Call of the Wild, Pygmy Shrews, Pampers). Reed has never had a band drink as much as they did when recording this session; and they apparently out-drank The Spits at their hometown venue. If you like stupid punk for stupid people, don't miss this session.

His new disc, "Seven Pines," is out now on Tompkins Square. Joining Daniel is guitarist/songwriter Mark Fosson, a Kentucky native who briefly worked with John Fahey in the 1970's just as the Takoma Label was failing. Fosson has since worked with fellow songwriter Edward Tree in the Bum Steers in the 80's, and moved on to other collaborations before going solo again. Mark has been compared to Americana folks like Ramblin' Jack Elliott, Joe Ely, John Prine, and Guy Clark. His Takoma tapes were \ released on Drag City a few years ago.

Journalist and Author Sylvie Simmons
Wednesday, November 14th, 2012, 3pm - 6pm
on Irwin Chusid

Irwin welcomes journalist Sylvie Simmons to his program on Weds. November 14 at 4pm. Simmons will discuss her new book, I'M YOUR MAN: THE LIFE OF LEONARD COHEN, recently published by Ecco/HarperCollins. Over half a century, Cohen has established a near-mythic reputation as a cultural icon and ladies' man. His work as a singer, songwriter, poet, and novelist explores sex, religion, power, and romance. Born in Montreal, where he achieved fame as a poet in the fifties, Cohen lived in London and on the Greek island of Hydra, before launching his music career in New York in the sixties. The book traces the arc of his literary and musical achievements, including his retreat in the mid-1990s, when on the verge of marriage to a beautiful actress after the success of his best-selling album ever, Cohen entered a monastery on a rocky mountaintop above Los Angeles. When he returned home, he found his bank accounts had been bled dry by someone he trusted, and he was forced back onto the road at age 73. Sylvie Simmons has penned bios of Serge Gainsbourg and Neil Young, and is a Contributing Editor at Mojo magazine.

He first appeared on FMU 20 years ago on Tony Coulter's show. Yximalloo comes into FMU's studios this week to tell Nat about some of his recent work, which spastically cuts up the sounds of 1950's Americana, and he ended up ranting for a half hour about his horrible neighbors! Very incredible! Yximalloo is a man without comparison, so tune in for some weirdness.

Today we'll hear 3 hours of the festival broadcast live from Le Poisson Rouge, 158 Bleecker St. in Greenwich Village.

Singles going pre-revolutionary Iranian
Tuesday, October 30th, 2012, 7pm - 9pm
Neighbors Noise with Jesse Kaminsky (on Give the Drummer Radio stream)
Before the revolution, Iran had a lively music culture with a wide variety of styles and fusions.

Jesse will spend two hours exploring the overground and the underground of Iranian 60's and 70's music, from popular singers like Gougoush and Aref to underground, barely-recorded groups like the Littles and the Tigers. All from the crackly original 45's.

Saturday, October 27th, 2012, 6pm - 9pm
on Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg

Kristi Stassinopoulou & Stathis Kalyviotis create intoxicating electro-folk-rock-psychedelia.

On Kristi's first four international CDs the couple (with band) performed Kristi's poetic and magical original songs. Their new European-world-music-chart-topping duo cd Greekadelia (Riverboat) is a bit different: It's a covers project, a radical reworking of traditional demotika songs.

MCoQ double-bill #2: Sun Splitter and Yellow Eyes
Friday, October 26th, 2012, Midnight - 3am
Wm. Berger presents My Castle of Quiet
Chicago's Sun Splitter are a mighty, intense, metal/doom/rock combo, driven by pummeling drum-machine beats, roaring vocals, and intricate, dense guitar riffage. Their songs also often veer off into primordial, horror-ambient, dungeon codas, and it's these gloomy forays that especially set Sun Splitter apart from the metal pack, and demonstrate the range and emotional capabilities of this extraordinary band. MCoQ catches up with Sun Splitter on tour, with a local show 10/25 at Saint Vitus, supporting their accomplished new LP, III, on Bloodlust!

NYC-based Yellow Eyes are an exceptional, opaque and complex black metal band, the revelry of their melodic and cunningly arranged songs wrapped in melancholic atmosphere, like a killer peeking out from behind a swatch of black lace. Their 2011 full-length, Silence Threads The Evening's Cloth (Sol y Nieve), and their upcoming split with Monument, are both My Castle of Quiet favorites, and are representative touchstones of where the black metal genre is and should be going.

On Tuesday, October 23 at 8pm Eastern, The Old Codger fills in for Mac's Antique Phonograph Hour. The Codger is a quasi-life force fueled by steamed cabbage, cigar stubs plucked from the gutter, and petty grievances. He also spins 78 rpm records like they're going outta style.

Piano, drum machines, guitars, tapes and effects all meld into a hazy blur of arena rock, prog, dub, and what an astute observer proclaimed to be ""mellow drug-mospheres around a crisp keyboard centre." Vince Guaraldi, '80s Groundhogs, and Cluster seem to have found a common ground.

on Irene Trudel's show

Creating a concept album of orchestral pop is Greta Gertler's latest musical venture. Greta and percussionist Adam Gold formed The Universal Thump, combining the work of over 60 exceptional musicians. As they describe it, "the catalytic inspiration for this record (and later its unifying tale) was a whale-watching expedition for two, that took the co-producers (Adam and Greta) to Maritime Canada in mid 2008 (elaborated in the impressionistic “To The Border”)."

Sunday, October 21st, 2012, 5pm - 7pm

Gaylord Fields and Dark Night of the Soul's Julie both agree that they love the Kinks. Where they differ is on which is their favorite era of the band, with Gaylord preferring their Sixties output, from "You Really Got Me" up to Arthur, and Julie holding preference for the group's later material. To settle their difference of musical opinion, this week Gaylord will play nothing but early Kinks songs for Julie in order to sway her to his side. On the follow-up program a week later, it will be Julie's turn, as she selects from the group's post-Sixties discography in order to persuade Gaylord of the band's later superiority.

on Undancing In The Dirt with Thomas Storck

In the wake of their new LP on Little Big Chief Records, Brooklyn's Mountain Cult visit the WFMU studios to perform a set of all new, unreleased songs. Late night Stooges-influenced stoner jams that stumble along with just the right amount of sloppiness, delivered with a striking authenticity that shines through the reverb and the murk. Like if Mad Nanna turned everything up and started playing downer psych!
