Ron English, who has been accurately labeled "celebrated prankster father of agit-pop," has since the early eighties been tirelessly building a prolific body of work including his controversial and illegal "liberation" billboard art series in which his favorite corporate targets include Joe Camel, Mickey Mouse, and McDonalds. In fact his less than flattering Ronald McDonald images are featured in Morgan Spurlock's documentary "Super Size Me." As well as painting (on canvas and other surfaces), the ever-busy artist also makes sculptures and toys such as his brand new Cathy Cowgirl toys.

The Ex
Tuesday, January 9th, 2007, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

Since 1979, Holland's greatest musical export has been setting the bar higher and higher. Starting off as squat-residing political punks that learned music only after booking their first gig, the band has grown into an incredible example of living its message via passionate and prolific output both musical and print-related. Through the years, their world travels have allowed them to grow and absorb many genres of music into their sound, from European folk, to improvisational jazz and African pop; in the last few years they completed a self-promoted tour of Ethiopia and have released CD's from some of the continent's greatest musicians including the famed Konono Number 1. Live, the current lineup of Terrie, Andy, G.W. Sok, and Katherina are a veritable tornado of pounding rhythms and dissonant twin guitars, tearing up the stage more each time they return to New York. They appear for the first time ever in WFMU's live room today for a full session (with video forthcoming on the blog!), plus interview afterwards that will include their current tourmate DJ/Rupture.

Max Brennan / Wight Light Orchestra
Wednesday, December 13th, 2006, 7pm - 8pm
on Phuj Phactory with Ergo Phizmiz

A visit to the Phuj Phactory from "spiritual disco technician" Max Brennan, creator of the acclaimed "Alien to Whom" and "Maxwell House" series. The Wight Light Orchestra is the latest adventure from prolific producer Max. After a break from the business and a lot of time spent in the Himalayas on a cosmic quest of meditation and presence, Max has teamed up with fellow cosmic warriors Louis Soteriou and Jon Mcmullen. The project "Wight Light Orchestra" (named after the Isle of Wight, which means life, sprite, & enlightened spirit) aims to capture and transmit directly from the heart, pure presence. The project weaves mantras, Tibetan singing bowls, temple bells, classical guitar, and rhythmic dynamics with twisted time signatures and inspired lyrics not seen in Max's work until now. This project is forging ahead with the emphasis on presence, on being here and now and playing to the global -- if not universal -- presence and consciousness that's now growing in the boundaries of social awareness.


Jesus Christ Superstar

Ken celebrates the birth of the baby Jesus by paying musical tribute to the death of the baby Jesus. Yes, Ken finally purges Andrew Lloyd Weber from his system by playing three hours of versions of Jesus Christ Superstar. So maybe it won't go to three hours. It will still be way too much Jesus-based bombast for that hour of the day. Included will be surf versions, moog versions, versions in Japanese, Russian, Swedish, and the best version ever - the Dutch one. Everything but the original soundtrack and the unmentionable film version.

What could be better to prep you for the holidays?

She's currently on tour for "Evangelista", one hell of a sonic exorcism if there ever was one, full of devastating vocal performances aided by instrumentalists from Montreal's Constellation label scene. She'll be hitting Brian's show right off a huge European tour, and plays that night at Michelene's (1124 Broadway @ Koscuiszko) in Brooklyn and the following night (December 6th) at Joe's Pub in NYC.

The koliadas are some of the best-preserved examples of oral literature from pre-Christian times. These song/poems are part of an ancient winter ritual that now coincides with Christmas. Koliadnyky, visiting from the Ukraine, will perform the music on traditional instruments like the trembita, a twelve-foot long mountain horn and the volynka, goat-skin bagpipes. Also present to help explain and explore the tradition will be Ukrainian-American musician Julian Kytasty and Virlana Tkacz of Yara Arts, who organized Koliadnyky's visit to NYC.

Straight outta France come The Mighty Go-Go Players! These guys seared thru the USA a few months back and played some great shows and laid down a blistering session for WFMU. The Mighty Go-Go Players' music is brutal raw keyboard driven garage and '70s punk, calling to mind The Gories, DMZ, The Reatards, The Novas, and The Mummies.
