Rio en Medio (Danielle Stech Homsy) PLUS Matt Bauer
Monday, February 5th, 2007, 3pm - 6pm
on
Irene Trudel's show
Rio en Medio principal Danielle Stech Homsy was born into visions and questions. With a gay Syrian painter and a Ukrainian flamenco dancer for parents, peculiar circumstance and mysterious blessings were the norm. Danielle's own songs are simple and beautifully mysterious, and she's been known to create some unusually stripped-down versions of a few pop songs on baritone ukelele.

Then banjoist Matt Bauer drops by for a set. Matt's music is loaded with imagery: Soldiers at Fort Campbell... Kentucky train to fight fires in the American west... A black deer slips through the floodlights on a suburban lawn... A teenage couple aborts a robbery at a gas station convenience store.... The music Bauer tends to lean on is from a bygone era, but he adds a thematically contemporary spin to his tunes.

A visit to the Phuj Phactory from some of the UK's finest purveyors of hip-hop topsy-turyvdom. In their own words: "Blank Beats is IAM8, Aaron Islamb, DJ HOT1, HevRok, B-NUT. This 20 minute session took us 20 minutes, in the presence of the tranquiliger. When we finished, he went. The blank of it all was to express the blank to keep it blank and blank you all in the blankess. You know. Some ancient artefacts still remain in private hands." Expect unquantized beats, sampled squeezeboxes, and literate lipshaking to get yer hipshaking...... or something like that.

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.

Old Codger with Courtney T. Edison
Courtney T. Edison, a.k.a. The Old Codger, makes his rambunctious return to the WFMU airwaves. As always, the Codger will play 78 rpm records "like they're goin' outta style." Tune in and witness the Redemptive Power of Surface Noise. Remember -- the Codger's not the Father of Old-Time Radio. He's just a sperm donor.

Christmas Ubermash
Wednesday, December 20th, 2006, 7pm - 8pm
on
Phuj Phactory with Ergo Phizmiz
Ergo Phizmiz has raided his collection of junkshop Yuletide vinyl slabs to produce a full hour of seasonal mayhem and mash-up. Prepare yourself for eskimoes roasting on an open fire, Bing Crosby feeling strangers he meets, Scrooge jamming with James Brown, Led Zeppelin playing along with European carols, old radio productions of Charles Dickens mashed into Samuel Beckett-ish repetitions, Wham! mixed with Emerson, Lake & Palmer, plus lashings of mulled wine, Tijuana Brass, and goodness knows what else. A special, sickly sweet box of Christmas chocolates.

Or something like that.

Nora joins Irene for a chat about her current projects and a live performance with her trio.

on
Andrew Listfield's show
They're baaack! Back for their 6th time at FMU. Back with their highly atmospheric western-tinged surfy spacey romantic sound. Back with their big & wide sound. With the dreamy sound. And playing all new stuff, sure to be on their upcoming CD, due sometime next summer. Tired of the 4 walls of today? Wanna get away from it all? Do it - with The Lost Patrol.


Pistolera
Saturday, December 16th, 2006, 6pm - 9pm
on Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg

Pistolera is a vibrant young NYC-based band that plays an original brand of accordion-driven Latin pop-folklorico, drawing from traditional styles of Mexican music. Fresh from the sold-out Joe's Pub record-release show for their new cd Siempre Hay Salida, they will play a live in-studio set.


The Husbands
Saturday, December 16th, 2006, 3pm - 6pm
on The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T

From San Francisco comes this female-fronted, raw garage punk band! These gals play your favorite 60s garage and 70s punk, calling to mind bands like the Sonics, Pleasure Seekers, Gories, Pandoras, the Bags, or the Ronettes (if they'd listened to a bunch of "Killed by Death" and "Back from the Grave" comps rather than Phil Spector!) They'll be playing tunes from their new album on Swami Records, which is called "There's Nothing I'd Like More than to See You Dead."
