Up-Tight are a heavy psychedelic power trio from Japan who are often compared to the legendary Les Rallizes Denudes due to a similar fixation with the Velvet Underground's most free-form moments.

If you're a fan of guitar feedback mayhem, make sure to tune into this special live session, recorded during their first US tour.

When I was Dead is a high energy NJ Punk Rock 'n Roll band featuring Dan Canzonieri of Electric Frankenstein.

Containing members of Down By Law and Pink Lincolns, the Pseudo Heroes have been compared to Husker Du, Dag Nasty, and Poison Idea.

Online only on wfmu.org, Wednesday, November 16th 6-9AM following the weekly "Bring that beat back" is (this week only), an UNCENSORED RAP special of Bring That Beat Back with Billy Jam. "As a rap radio DJ - long confined by the constraints of the FCC - it feels like being unshackled to be able to finally play so many great rap songs that - due to a few "bad" words just could never be played on the FM radio dial," says host Billy Jam who promises to play uncensored new and classic hip-hop records.


West Oakland Funk/Soul/R&B retrospective with guest DJ Buck
Wednesday, November 16th, 2005, 2am - 6am
on
Put The Needle On The Record with Billy Jam
In the 1950's and 60's, West Oakland boasted more than 20 rhythm and blues clubs such as Slim Jenkins and Esther's Orbit Lounge -- which pumped out gritty live music every night of the week and fueled a whole cottage industry of black owned mom-and-pop record stores, plus countless East Bay record labels to support the thriving local doo-wop, RnB, soul, and emerging funk music scenes. But the music died - or rather was killed in the name of "urban development". The Cypress Freeway and the new overhead BART train (bay area transit system) were built right down the middle of what was once the main strip of the West Oakland clubland, effectively grinding things to a tragic halt. 60-year old Oakland music fan Buck was there back then and will share memories and vinyl from this rich era beginning at 3 AM. All recorded live at the laundromat!

African Sounds with Andy Moor of the Ex
Tuesday, November 15th, 2005, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

Besides playing guitar in Dutch avant-rock band the Ex, Andy Moor, like his fellow bandmates, is a rabid musicologist of hidden sounds from around the world, and together they have brought to the spotlight amazing artists like Tsehaytu Beraki and Konono No. 1 (the latter of which makes an American debut November 16th at Joe's Pub and the 17th at SOB's). Brian invited Andy some time ago to produce a program at home that highlights his favorite recordings, and today we will air his guided tour through Uganda, Malawi, Zambia, Zimbabwe and other African locales. We'll also be checking out some of the Ex's most recent NYC performance from their 2004 Knitting Factory show, which will be part of a forthcoming DVD documentary on the band directed by Jem Cohen. And of course we'll be playing some Konono No.1 music to celebrate their upcoming shows.


You Ishihara and Friends
Monday, November 14th, 2005, 11pm - 2am
on
Janitor From Mars with R. Lim
As the leader of the legendary White Heaven, singer-songwriter You Ishihara built an international cult following with his melancholic take on the West Coast psychedelic sound in the footsteps of Quicksilver Messenger Service. Although his new band The Stars sports a more punk edge, he returns to his early roots in this hushed, intimate performance, recorded at WFMU on the eve of the release of his new Stars album, "A Perfect Place to Hideaway".

Monday, November 14th, 2005, 6pm - 7pm

TWO BANDS: Art Brut + The Demands
Saturday, November 12th, 2005, 3pm - 6pm
on The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T

Art Brut are British rockers who play smart-dumb, repetitive two-chord punk that is actually perfectly catchy pop! Last year their anthemic tribute to every talentless wonder who was proud to pick up a guitar, "Formed A Band," was the single of the year for NME, Pitchfork, and John Peel!

The Demands' stripped down sound blends old soul, greasy R&B, power pop, and punk rock. Combined with lead singer Jahna's sultry growling and steamy lyrics, their music has been called "sex-themed punk-soul" and 'a teenaged Etta James or Carla Thomas sitting in with their neighborhood garage group for an afternoon.'

Monday, November 7th, 2005, 11pm - 2am
on
Janitor From Mars with R. Lim
Although Yura Yura Teikoku have achieved mainstream popularity in Tokyo as one of its most dynamic rock bands, they have yet to make waves outside of their home country. This is all about to change on the heels of two rapturously received shows in New York to celebrate the distribution of their back catalog via New York's Mesh Key Records. Tune in to find out what makes their blend of psychedelic pop and early New York art-punk so appealing in this session, recorded exclusively for The Janitor From Mars radio program.

on
The Speakeasy with Dorian
A Survey of her work will open at the Danforth Museum of Art in Framingham, MA, and a new monograph of her work has just been published by Harry N. Abrams.


Jozef van Wissem & Sean Smith
Monday, November 7th, 2005, 3pm - 6pm
on Irene Trudel's show

On Jozef van Wissem's latest disc, "Objects in Mirror are closer than they appear," he continues his fascination with musical palindromes. Jozef's also incorporated a fair amount of taped airfield recordings and electronics into his latest project. The Netherlands-based master-lutist is dropping by WFMU to perform on a trip to the New York area. Also on the show, rescheduled from last week, the mysterious and amazing fingerstyle guitarist, Sean Smith, whose compositions make more than a passing nod to greats like John Fahey and Robbie Basho. By way of introduction, "Sean Smith was born on a grey day in Pacific Grove, California in 1981 and has yet to emerge from the fog. He currently lives all alone in a rambling Victorian house on the coast of California overlooking the Pacific ocean. The high ceilings and hardwood floors of this century old house make for great opportunities in recording his solo guitar explorations, but the dining room in which he sleeps is so cold at night it's like wearing ice ear muffs." Sean's surroundings make for great musical inspirations, and you can hear the result when he plays live.


Dave the Spazz fills in for Glen Jones with King Coleman & the Creepy T's, live at the WFMU Record Fair!
Sunday, November 6th, 2005, Noon - 3pm
on Music To Spazz By with Dave the Spazz

Magik Markers
Tuesday, November 1st, 2005, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

With broad strokes of No Wave and classic hardcore sensibilities, the Magik Markers have often been saddled with comparsions to Teenage Jesus and especially Red Transistor, though in their five year wake of trashed drumkits and broken guitars they've done equal amounts of introspective sound explorations as well. Live, Pete Nolan (drums), Leah Quimby (guitar) and Elisa Ambroglio (guitar, vocal) totally spraypaint the walls; if you are missing the adrenaline-to-the-heart shock of live Harry Pussy, Minor Threat and primo Black Flag (Elisa is way more Keith Morris than Lydia Lunch), or worship the meltdown guitar rumbling and off-balance wooziness of the Dead C circa "Harsh 70's Reality" this may very well be your new fave action trio. Video clips on the playlist page to follow!


The Night Terrors
Tuesday, November 1st, 2005, Noon - 3pm
on
Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock
Just because Halloween is over, doesn't mean WFMU's scare tactics are! These Milwaukee maniacs mix dirty garage-punk with a side of Alice Cooper horror for a frighteningly good brew, which we should expect from Beer City!

on
Inflatable Squirrel Carcass with Rich Hazelton
The Inflatable Squirrel Carcass welcomes its first guests as Michael Evans (percussion, analog electronics, theremin) and Kenta Nagai (guitar, shamisen) take over for three hours. They will perform live, present recordings from other performances, DJ, and interview. Unlike the last attempt to have a guest on the Inflatable Squirrel Carcass, if these guys forget their instruments they'll still be entertaining.

Thee Minks
Thursday, October 27th, 2005, 11pm - 2am
on
Pat Duncan's show
Formed in 2001 by guitarist / vocalist Hope Diamond and bassist / vocalist Liz Lixx, Thee Minks burst out of the garage and onto the stage, steaming up bar windows up and down the East Coast with their infectious Ronettes-meets-the-Ramones-by-way-of-Radio-Birdman stomp. After solidifying their line-up with the addition of drum whore extraordinaire The Playthang, the band has played with The Woggles, The Downbeat 5, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, the Little Killers, Nikki and The Corvettes, and Shonen Knife. This summer they headed back into the studio to add another notch to their rock and roll bedpost, resulting in the 14 tough and sexy bittersweet rock and roll nuggets that make up their first full length CD.

on
Brian Turner's show
The spazzed-out inner recesses of the minds of Baltimore's Twig, Carly, and Max come alive today via an arsenal of junkyard electronics. Squeals, drones, clanging, bashed percussion, oven-mitt guitar playing, blips, blaps, confusion 100% guaranteed.

on Irene Trudel's show

Led by erstwhile Firewater co-conspirator and international piano man Paul Wallfisch, Botanica is a band named for those mysterious stores stocking spells, potions, and artifacts of ritual. This Brooklyn-based band makes punk rock chamber music for the 21st century. Botanica describes their third album, "Botanica vs. the Truth Fish," as a vivid collection of sexy, swampy, political mayhem, and they'll be bringing that mayhem to the WFMU studio today.

Tune in online to John Allen's Monday morning's web only show from 6-9 am EDT for a set of music by Jack Rose, followed by an interview with the producer of Imaginational Anthem as we celebrate all those "riding Fahey's Ass to the bank".


The Nightingales
Saturday, October 22nd, 2005, 3pm - 6pm
on
The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T
In the early 1980's the UK's Nightingales were a relatively unknown cult band, but they were the critic's favorites in the post-punk music scene. John Peel championed them and said of their relative obscurity: "their performances will serve to confirm their excellence -- and other, infinitely better known bands stand revealed as charlatans". The Nightingales recently re-formed and played some dates in the US. These underground legends stop by the Cherry Blossom Clinic and honor us with an amazing session of intricate, complex rock! Check out the their recently reissued album from 1986, 'In the Good Old Country Way,' on Caroline True records, as well as some new 7" releases on Big Print.

Tune in as Brian turns over 2 hours of the show to Andee Connors and Allan Horrocks from Aquarius Records, who've trekked out from San Francisco towing a sack of sub-sub-subterranean sounds that are sure to blow minds. These guys have given Brian longtime advice on some of the weirdest metal treasures in his collection, and they're promising some real jawdroppers today from across the musical spectrum that you will surely hear nowhere else. Andee also has some yet-to-be-released goodies on his own fine tUMULt label, including utterly twisted recordings of a bleak-souled 7th grade kid from Korea making fuzzed-out black metal trash at home to rival even Burzum! Don't miss!


Thee Fine Lines
Tuesday, October 18th, 2005, Noon - 3pm
on Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock

This power trio is not only the best Headcoats tribute band to come out of Springfield, Missouri, they're the best in the country!

Jose Gonzalez
Monday, October 17th, 2005, 3pm - 6pm
on Irene Trudel's show

The names Bert Jansch, Nick Drake, and Joao Gilberto have been rising to people's lips when describing the music of Jose Gonzalez. This Swedish-born singer-songwriter leans toward the melancholic but adds a classical Latin sound to his guitar playing. Jose is a rising star in the Scandanavian music community, and is about to tour the UK on the Twisted Folk Tour. He drops by to pluck out some of his darkly beautiful tunes on a classical guitar for WFMU.


Daniel Menche
Sunday, October 16th, 2005, 6am - 9am
on
Airborne Event with Dan Bodah
WFMU will be graced with a second visit from Portland, Oregon noise artist Daniel Menche [MEN-CHEE]. Menche's work has always stood apart from schlocky death-obsessed post-industrial noise artists because he's got a sense of humor and follows his curiosity to explore sound textures culled from places ranging from his own body to drums, electronics, and environmental sounds. Listen in as he pulls it all together into a foot-stomping, death-defying sonic experience.


Guest DJ Dave Buttle of Mr. Bongo Records
Saturday, October 15th, 2005, 6pm - 8pm
on
Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg
Mr Bongo specializes in digging up old Latin, Brazilian, and African gems as well as discovering edgy new artists from thereabouts - trendy now, but the label was one of the first in the UK to work these angles. While he's in town Dave will also spin at SOBs in Manhattan (later on Saturday night) and Black Betty in Williamsburg (Sunday).

Saturday, October 8th, 2005, 3pm - 6pm
on The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T

All the way from Brighton in the UK, the Mutts storm the Cherry Blossom Clinic to blast out an amazing set of early-70s-sounding hard rock. Their one guitarist somehow plays like Angus *and* Malcolm Young combined, giving the band a sound that recalls early AC/DC or Sir Lord Baltimore. But at the same time you'd be hard-pressed to find a review that doesn't mention the Ramones as well. Don't miss this slamming session, and pick up the Mutts' new album 'Life in Dirt,' out now on Fatcat.

Paul Metzger
Sunday, October 2nd, 2005, 9pm - 11pm
on Stochastic Hit Parade / A440 with Bethany Ryker

The banjo like you've never heard it before. Sometimes Metzger's "modified" banjo recalls a flute playing Carnatic ragas, then takes turns towards Derek Bailey-style textural elements in long, meditative pieces that build like one long single phrase. Paul drops in to the WFMU studios on a tour that brings him to the east coast from his residence in Minnesota.

Reverend Lester Knox
Thursday, September 29th, 2005, 6pm - 7pm
on
Aircheck
This season of Aircheck concludes this Thursday with more insanely over-the-top gospel radio from from the Reverend Lester Knox of Tifton, Georgia, whose self-financed religious broadcasts were heard from around 1980 til 1992. You may have caught some of the Reverend's rantings last season on Aircheck; that material ultimately ended up on a Smack Shire CD release. But tonight's program features all unreleased preachings from Reverend Knox, now with added hellfire! Don't miss it!


Singing Sadie
Wednesday, September 28th, 2005, Noon - 3pm
on Irwin Chusid

Singing Sadie, recently arrived on US shores via tramp steamer from her native Australia, will either sing or break glass on Irwin's Gender Bias program. Sadie harkens back to the not-so-innocent pre-WW 2 era of dime-a-dance torch singers and flapper vamps. But she'll never be mistaken for Helen Morgan. With old ballroom band records, and without inhibition, Sadie wails original lyrics that are naughty, sick, degraded, perverse, debauched -- you get the picture. She also tap dances. Her debut release, Songs for Swingers, has inspired equal measures of admiration and loathing.

Circle
Tuesday, September 27th, 2005, 3pm - 6pm
on
Brian Turner's show
Made up of classically-trained musicians, Circle emerged from Pori, Finland in 1991 and continued to defy categorization; just when they get pegged as prog-leaning space-rockers, they then throw down an LP of minimalist metal with a guy doing complete Rob Halford vocal wailing, a sound they can swing to as easily as they lock into sinsiter Kraut grooves or explore glacial electronic soundscapes. They put in a rare US radio performance on Brian's show today.


Bill Morrison
Monday, September 26th, 2005, 6pm - 7pm
on
The Speakeasy with Dorian

Art of Flying

on
Irene Trudel's show
New Mexico-based Art of Flying is on an east coast scaled-down scouting mission. Singer David Costanza said, "We are three!! We sing peaceballads. Political love lullabyes will do nicely in a pinch". David went on to say, "someone recently called it something like wind blown scattered folk" (in the Denver weekly). Art of Flying make their first trip out to WFMU to play live.


Kiran Ahluwalia
Saturday, September 24th, 2005, 9pm - Midnight
on
Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg
Kiran Ahluwalia [KIRIN AH-LOO-WAH-LEE-YUH] is a performer of two distinct styles of vocal music from the Indian subcontinent. She sings ghazals [GUZZLES], an ancient form of sung poetry, as well as folk songs from her family's native Punjabi region of India and Pakistan. Like FMU's own Laura Cantrell, Kiran squeezed in music while maintaining a "straight" career for many years before giving up the day jobs and trying to make it full-time as a singer. So far so good - her new CD has made it to #4 on the World Music Charts Europe and was on the CMJ "world music" top 20 for 14 weeks. Kiran joins Rob during the first hour-plus of the show to chat and introduce songs from the cd, self-titled and released by Triloka/Artemis, not to mention plug her next local gig, at Satalla in NYC September 29. And maybe she'll do a little unplugged performing...

The Listener Hour
4 year old DJ Desmond brings his portable keyboard and a Bob the Builder knapsack full of CDs to share with the discerning WFMU audience. Raised since birth on a steady diet of odd girlgroups and reggae from Mom, plus hardcore and free jazz from Dad, Desmond tries to answer the musical question: "Why do cement mixers need water to make cement?"


The Enablers
Friday, September 23rd, 2005, 3pm - 6pm
on Mike L.'s show

The Enablers are a San Francisco group that backs the noir-ish spoken soliloquies of writer Pete Simonelli with dark soundscapes and music that bares unreasonable amounts of intensity in spite of its spare construction. With ties to artists as varied as Nice Strong Arm, The Swans, Timco, Toiling Midgets, Tarnation, and June of 44, the Enablers sound is unique, demanding, and not soon forgotten.

on
Pat Duncan's show
Formed in 1995, Brooklyn NY's Inhuman are making their debut WFMU appearence, performing brand new tracks as well as songs from their most recent release "The New Nightmare" on A-F Records. The band's brand of dark Hardcore/Punk/Metal is sure to appeal to fans of Sheer Terror, the Cro-Mags and the Misfits.
