An hour long mash-up of dialogue, music, and sound-effects from classic Hal Roach era Laurel & Hardy films.

Nearly five years after their legendary set as part of the experimental doom metal outfit Khanate, James Plotkin (O.L.D., Scorn) and Tim Wyskida (Blind Idiot God) are back with a solid hour of sonic mayhem that's sure to cause permanent ear damage to all who dare to tune in.

Z'EV and Sikhara
Tuesday, April 17th, 2007, 3pm - 6pm

Brian Turner's show
A total legend in experimental sound, text, and visual art, Z'EV has been exploring 'spacial poetics' while creative percussive mayhem since the 1970's. He's been responsible for tons of solo releases and has collaborated with the likes of the Hafler Trio, John Cage, and Psychic TV; he last visited FMU over 25 years ago while living in NYC and working with Glenn Branca and Rudolph Grey among others. He's joined today by drum disciples Sikhara (who've been a central cog in the growing Radon label collective), making their second visit to Brian's show. Get ready for some serious volume and heavy metal of a different strain this afternoon.


Sally Crewe and the Sudden Moves
Tuesday, April 17th, 2007, Noon - 3pm

Hang the Lights
Monday, April 16th, 2007, 3pm - 6pm
on Irene Trudel's show

A little country, a little creepy as Appalachian waltzes and two-steps clash with Middle Eastern rhythms is how one might describe Hang the Lights' sound. This four-piece from Brooklyn, featuring accordion, guitar, piano, bass and drums, drop by WFMU to perform songs by One Ring Zero's Joshua Camp with such heady topics as lycanthropy, coelacanths, satellites, and heartbreak.

The Society is named after a 17th century Jesuit scientist and collector of curiosities who described the cat piano, initiated the field of Egyptology, and once had himself lowered into the crater of a volcano so he could study it. Josh talks with Dan about made-up languages, an organ that plays scents, and the Kircherian mindset. You can also check kirchersociety.org for great stuff like clips of William Shatner starring in an Esperanto horror movie.


Remote Broadcast from Barbes with Slavic Soul Party, Edmar Castaneda, and more!
Saturday, April 14th, 2007, 6pm - 9pm
on Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg

Rollicking downtown / Brooklyn supergroup Slavic Soul Party put their own high-energy horn-centered spin on Balkan music - mixing in other multi-culti brass band influences like Mexican banda as well as jazz and soul and a whole lot more. Tonight they'll be celebrating the release of their latest superhot cd, Teknochek Collision.

Edmar Castaneda is a virtuoisic young harpist and composer who has performed with Lila Downs, Yerba Buena, Marta Topferova and many others, as well as leading his own group. Edmar deftly blends traditional elements from his native Colombia with jazz and other influences using a technique he developed: playing bass lines with his left hand, while the right hand plays melody. His debut CD is called "Cuarto de Colores." Barbes is located at 376 9th St. in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Come down and be a part of the broadcast magic!

The Caution Curves
Friday, April 13th, 2007, 2am - 6am
on Jason Elbogen's show

Washington DC's-based three piece The Caution Curves weave strangled vocals, electronic blippery, and found sounds into a compelling stew that ends up sounding like The Ex (from the "Joggers and Smoggers" era) fronted by Joan La Barbara. Some of their songs are driven by propulsive drumming, while others leave the noises and vocals to stand on their own. Listen as they celebrate the release of their new full-length album "A Little Hungry".

Wednesday, April 11th, 2007, 7pm - 8pm

White Hills
Tuesday, April 10th, 2007, 11pm - 2am
on The Evan "Funk" Davies Show

The Brooklyn-based trio White Hills has earned attention and acclaim from tastemakers ranging from Julian Cope to the staff at Aquarius Records, and now it's your turn! Their latest release, "Glitter Glamour Atrocity" is an amazing amalgamation of guitar-crazed space rock, krautrock, psych, and even a little fuzz thrown in for good measure. They've drawn apt comparisons to Hawkwind, Joy Division, Neu!, and Echo and the Bunnymen, among others. Once you hear them live you'll be making your own comparisons. Don't miss it!!

Tuesday, April 10th, 2007, 6pm - 7pm

M Shanghai String Band
Monday, April 9th, 2007, 3pm - 6pm
on Irene Trudel's show

With an adventurous take on Americana, The M Shanghai String Band is not easily classified. They've been playing together since 2002, when they first started monthly get-togethers at Brooklyn's M Shanghai Bistro & Den. Their debut album, "Up From the Ground Below", recorded in one day in the restaurant's dining room, set the mission in motion: timeless original songs played with a sense of abandon. They belong with their progressive contemporaries (Gillian Welch, Jolie Holland, Be Good Tanyas) who emphasize distinctive songwriting above the constraints of genre. The M Shanghai String Band crosses the river to play in WFMU's Jersey City home.


Sounds of Taraab
Saturday, April 7th, 2007, 6pm - 9pm
on Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg

The Sounds of Taraab performs "taraab", a musical style from Zanzibar and coastal East Africa. At its essence taraab combines African rythmn and Swahili lyrics, heavily influenced by Arabic and Indian popular music. There are other influences as well, since this region has been a hub of business, trade, and cultural intermingling for millenia. Sounds of Taraab features vocalist Alsarah, oud master Haig Manookian, accordion virtuoso Ismail Butera, Michael Hess on violin and nai plus percussionists Tiye Giraud and April Centrone who deploy an array of instruments including dumbek, riq, pandero, and shekere.

Bob W fills in for Irwin with guest Mike Gorder
Wednesday, April 4th, 2007, Noon - 3pm
on
Bob W.'s show
Bob plays Ratso Rizzo to Gorder's Joe Buck, pimping a young Alaskan hockey stud in NYC for the first time, trying to make a living renting himself out at the rink... with a guitar on his back! His dark, stripped down acoustic numbers are the backdrop for his cutting bitter-sweet lyrics about life and love.

on Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock

Eric Stein helped propel the Greenhornes and Holly Golightly to new sonic territory. Now the lead guitarist steps out front to lead his own trio out of Cincinnati and to New York for the first time. Cross the pre-Village Green Kinks with the Everly Brothers and whatever other cool bands you wanna use as an unfair comparison and, uh, well, you'll hear - it's damn good rock and roll music!


Moore and Sons
Monday, April 2nd, 2007, 3pm - 6pm
on Irene Trudel's show

Conjuring up a vibe akin to stargazing while lazing in the backyard grass, Moore and Sons create a kind of musical escapism from the grimey city. Led by former Negative Approach drummer turned singer/songwriter Chris Moore, the ensemble's latest, "Us Fools," is a calm 'countrypolitan' charmer, and their best album yet. They drop by to play a set at WFMU.


Misty Roses
Sunday, April 1st, 2007, 5pm - 7pm
on Gaylord Fields's show

The transatlantic duo of Misty Roses -- New York singer Robert Conroy and London-based instrumentalist Jonny Perl -- re-create grandiose, cinematic orchestrations that recall Scott Walker and Dusty Springfield as adeptly as any two-man band possibly could. For this springtime session, they add acoustic and electric guitars to the electronics, yet maintain the dark notes of their recorded output, as can be found on the recently issued mini-LP Monster Zero.


Laila Skovmand + Lelo Nika + Afenginn
Saturday, March 31st, 2007, 6pm - 9pm

We recorded sessions with three of the Danish artists: Artsy chanteuse Laila Skovmand [skove-mahnd], Balkan-rooted accordionist Leko Nika [lay-low nee-kah] and Balkan-inspired maniacs Afenginn.

NYC collaborators included Chinese-born pipa (lute) player Min Xiao Fen [min cho fen], the Klezmatics' horn player / keyboardist Frank London, and Brazilian-born pianist / keyboardist Helio Alves [hell-ee-oh ahl-ves]. Excerpts of these sessions were aired in January but the full sessions will be heard on this show.

In celebration of modern art's most controversial form, graffiti, WFMU will dedicate a show to the outlawed aerosol artform through interviews and hip-hop music: exploring its history, its place in the art world, its impact on commerce and advertising, plus its ever-increasing legal battles. In an examination of these topics, Billy Jam will host a round table discussion with studio guests that will include graffiti artists MUCK, EZO, DEMER, HOST18, and TABOO plus longtime graffiti photo-journalists Jim & Karla Murray: authors of the critically acclaimed books "Burning New York" and "Broken Windows."

Music To Spazz By with Dave the Spazz
Nutty record collector Greg Germani from Decatur, Georgia drops by Music To Spazz By armed with crates of obscure country and hillbilly records to wing at the city folk. Expect drunken odes to dead children, incarcerated felons, horrific car crashes, abortion, capital punishment, skid row, hippies, winos, more hippies, murderers, suicide, women's lib, truck-driving, hare-brained novelties, and a truckload of toe-tappin' hillbilly mambo noise, country rhumbas, country tangos, and country twists. It'll be like listening to "Rubber Room" for three hours but in Hillbilly Smell-O-Vision!

Lee Feldman
Monday, March 26th, 2007, 3pm - 6pm
on Irene Trudel's show

Evoking platitudes from reviewers such as, "Harry Nilsson meets Fats Waller," and "Randy Newman by way of Lou Reed and Paul Simon," Lee Feldman is a very entertaining singer, pianist and songwriter. His third album, "I've Forgotten Everything" is, according to Stereophile Magazine, "unlike anything else in contemporary pop." Lee is also the creator of STARBOY, an animated musical about a 2-dimensional superhero who lives with his uncle, a Mathematician. Lee stops by tickle the ivories on WFMU's piano.


Gabriel Kahane
Monday, March 26th, 2007, 3pm - 6pm
on Irene Trudel's show

"The bastard child of Alban Berg," as he calls himself on myspace, Gabriel Kahane makes music out of contradictions. Gabriel has created the Craigslistlieder-- ribald postings from craigslist.org set to chromatic, harmonically dense, and rhythmically jagged music in a song cycle. But to call him gimmicky would tell only part of the story. Kahane, while rooted in the classical tradition, writes funny and moving pop songs which he accompanies on piano. He drops by WFMU to play a few of them.


Peeesseye
Monday, March 26th, 2007, Midnight - 3am
on Woody's show

The Peeesseye and its many offshoots (Phantom Limb & Bison, P.I.M.F.W.S., collaborations with Tetuzi Akiyama and Stephen O'Malley, etc.) have been slinging mud and clawing at the foundations of the experimental noise underground for five years now. They've released 5 CDs and a 7 inch (all on Evolving Ear) in that time. Tune in to Woody's show as the Brooklyn trio drops by WFMU for a late-night live performance.

Wednesday, March 21st, 2007, 7pm - 8pm
on Phuj Phactory with Ergo Phizmiz

Vernon LeNoir explores the world of Alejandro Jodorowsky.

Bombers AND The Ghouls
Thursday, March 1st, 2007, 11pm - 2am
on Pat Duncan's show

Haunting melodies, danceable rhythms, and a dual vocal attack...Bombers feature former members of Disnihil and Saints of 35th Street. They sound nothing like either band!

The Ghouls formed out of the spike & stud punk movement of the late 90's, and sound like a cross between hardcore punk and horror rock. They are currently on a US tour in support of their new CD "Stand Alone" on SOS Records and they are playing with The Exploited and Final Conflict.


4,000,000 Telephones
Wednesday, February 28th, 2007, 7pm - 8pm
on Phuj Phactory with Ergo Phizmiz

4,000,000 Telephones play the fool like virtuosos. Hard post punk with a funk inflection that's taken just seriously enough to sound good. Being silly is a serious business. The Lincoln, UK based band have reformed after 20 years to assist the CD release of their 1985 LP on Summerhouse Records. They have re-recorded three tracks specially for the Phuj Phactory, "Horses", "Safe", and "Cereal Commercial" from the eponymously titled album, plus a toothsome slab of improvisation, for your delectation.

Inlets
Monday, February 26th, 2007, 3pm - 6pm
on Irene Trudel's show

Under the guise of a low-fidelity project out of a Brooklyn nook, Inlets are Sebastian Krueger as chamber pop ensemble. Sebastian says, "I'm writing songs for the allergic. My nose itching from time spent sniffling at my odd ball instrumental writing, I began sneezing out lyrical melody and form in between between writing for my now-defunct instrumental group, and playing in My Brightest Diamond (of Asthmatic Kitty Records). This is the way of the post-academic: Plan, scrape, cough and dream." Krueger arrives at WFMU with a few fellow musicians to sneeze out a few tunes.


Erika Stucky
Saturday, February 24th, 2007, 6pm - 9pm
on Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg

Sly Swiss-American singer / songwriter / yodeler / accordionist / performance artist Erika Stucky incorporates elements of kitschy Alpine folklore, cheesy American pop, and jazz and world musics into her sometimes serious, sometimes satirical, always theatrical performances. Her various projects carry her from tuba-driven Michael Jackson covers to histrionic Swiss-German dialect vocal competitions to unlikely mixtures of African rhythms and Swiss alphorns. And she's becoming increasingly obsessed with, of all things, the yodel. Rob met Erika at FMU while she toured the US in September. On tonight's show we'll hear the interview, a bit of live performance and - of course - a yodel demonstration.

The Trolleyvox
Monday, February 19th, 2007, 3pm - 6pm
on Irene Trudel's show

These power-pop wonders from Philly have some of the catchiest tunes The Who and Beatles never got around to writing in their folkier moments. As on their two earlier discs, the newest offering, "The Trollyvox Present The Karaoke Meltdowns" features what have been called "Flower-Power" vocals from Beth Filla and Andrew Chalfen's abstract lyricism tossed together with a bit of rock-candy guitar. The Trolleyvox take the drive up the turnpike to play live in WFMU's Jersey City Studios.


Andy Statman
Saturday, February 17th, 2007, 6pm - 9pm
on Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg

Brilliant clarinetist and mandolinist Andy Statman is a musical pacesetter on two fronts: Following his 1960s apprenticeship with mandolin master Dave Grusin, Statman helped redefine bluegrass as a member of the 70s "newgrass" band Country Cookin' with Tony Trischka. He was also one of the leading lights in the klezmer music revival of the same era, prized pupil of the legendary klezmer clarinetist Dave Tarras. Tarras so adored Statman that he bequeathed his instruments to Andy when he died.

Statman will stop by for a live performance and to get the word out about his two new CDs on Shefa records, one representing each of the major strains in his music: the bluegrassy /American-rootsy "East Flatbush Blues" and "Awakening from Above", an exploration of Chassidic Jewish music.

Dan Bryk
Friday, February 16th, 2007, 8pm - 11pm
on Pseu Braun

Dan Bryk has spent a few years in hiding: hiding from the INS, hiding from ex-girlfriends, hiding from massively unrecouped record labels and credit card issuers, and hiding from the long shadow his singular CD release "Lovers Leap" cast over nerd pop fetishists everywhere. But he's finally left his cave with a handful of new releases, stopping by Pseu's show for performance and pop chatter. Dan is also returning to play live in NYC after more than three years on Sat., February 17th at Googie's Lounge at The Living Room.


The Sterns
Thursday, February 15th, 2007, 11pm - 2am
on Pat Duncan's show

Boston based quintet The Sterns exemplify the knack for masterful song craft, studio work ethic, and a get-in-the-van-and-go DIY mentality. Their newest release "Sinners Stick Together" is scheduled to be released on March 13th, and it showcases the band's deft lyrical turn of phrase and sonic anglophilia, melding the best elements of The Kinks, The Clash, Belle and Sebastian, and The Smiths.


Dick Valentine from Electric Six
Thursday, February 15th, 2007, 3pm - 6pm
on Diane's Kamikaze Fun Machine

Electric Six vocalist Dick Valentine stops by the studio to chat with Diane, explain the bizarre references in the Detroit band's' songs, and play some acoustic guitar like a rock star! Their new release is called "Switzerland" and was released by Metropolis Records. In between the on-mic antics, Dick will be showcasing some new and old Electric Six material.


The Love Phactory
Wednesday, February 14th, 2007, 7pm - 8pm
on
Phuj Phactory with Ergo Phizmiz
An especially loved-up episode of Phuj Phactory. Ergo Phizmiz is inviting couples to submit via e-mail at ergo at wfmu dot org "their song" - you know what we mean, the song that accompanied your first kiss (or what-not), that track that's special to you as a couple. You can either send an mp3 or just the artist and title. Then if you're feeling brave, record yourselves singing "your song" and send that too, with a little paragraph (or ideally a recorded paragraph) about why this song is special to you. Don't worry about the sound quality of the recordings, because love is the key! Ergo will then mix and mash these tracks into a loved-up Valentine's collage for a kissy-kissy, lovey-dovey slice of Valentine's Phuj.

Blues Control
Tuesday, February 13th, 2007, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

The duo of Lea Cho and Russ Waterhouse have somehow found a hazy but powerful common musical thread between Conrad Schnitzler's jabbering electronic workouts, the gauze of Locust Abortion Technician-era Butthole Surfers, and the more unicorn-saddling moments of Jan Hammer. Or perhaps in fact they are driving off in the car piloted by mid-period ZZ Top. Either way, we're psyched to have them making sounds in the studio today in advance of their forthcoming releases on the Woodsist and Holy Mountain labels sometime this year.


The Mofos
Tuesday, February 13th, 2007, Noon - 3pm
on Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock

Live performance from this instrumental trio from upstate New York that finds the middle ground in between Dick Dale and Motorhead to invent its own genre: Surf-instro-Metal.


Dälek
Monday, February 12th, 2007, 8pm - 11pm
on Mike L.'s show

Now complimented by richly textured keyboard and ambient guitar sounds, Dälek ascends into all new realms while still retaining their passion for planet-shattering beats and commanding wordplay. Ascendent newcomers be warned.
