According to Locust Music, which just released Apothecary Hymns' debut album 'Trowel and Era,' "Stimmel has made a collection with one foot in kaleidoscopic coastal loner psych that floats on a musical bed of whimsical levity and another foot rooted firmly in the grand ethos of East Village troubadours of the mid 60s.

It's a big band too - as many as 25 members (engineer Chris Stubbs' greatest challenge yet!) We catch the band before it heads off to Montpelier, France for a 50-band brass extravaganza...


TWO BANDS: The Saints + the Giant Haystacks
Saturday, May 21st, 2005, 3pm - 6pm

Led by Chris Bailey, the Saints are a seminal punk band from Australia whose sound is equal parts energy and melody. In 1977 the Saints made rock history with the brilliant buzz-blast of their debut album, "(I'm) Stranded" which features numerous punk classics! Bailey has been keeping the Saints going since '77 and is bringing them to the USA (and to WFMU!) after a successful Euro tour earlier this year. After their set, stick around for more live music from The Giant Haystacks, an Oakland California band that plays jangly, catchy, and propulsive postpunkpop, drawing comparisons to the Minutemen, Mission of Burma, and Gang of Four.

on The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T

All the way from Amsterdam, zZz stops by the Cherry Blossom Clinic as they kick off their North American tour & album release.

on Brian Turner's show

When not working as a dealer in occult print ephemera, Sir Richard Bishop maintains a stately, world-traveling existence as 1/3 of the Sun City Girls. He also moonlights as a purveyor of solo improvisational guitar whose style can be said to be more informed by the spirit of the films of Peckinpah and Jodorowsky than any clinical axeman influence. In town for shows at Joe's Pub on May 3rd and Maxwells in Hoboken on the 4th, Bishop visits Brian in the WFMU studios for an afternoon of tying together the worlds of Morocco, the Middle East, and Morricone.

Monday, May 9th, 2005, 6pm - 7pm
on
The Speakeasy with Dorian
Exploring the inner workings of big business, "The Corporation" looks at how, since its inception in the mid-1800s, the corporation has risen from a relatively insignificant entity to an over-protected behemoth wielding power that challenges that of governments and institutions worldwide. Based on Joel Bakan's book "The Corporation: The Pathological Pursuit of Profit and Power", the film (via interviews with both leading corporate gurus and prominent social critics like Noam Chomsky, Michael Moore, and Milton Friedman) spins a disturbing tale of the ways big business influences everything from the economy and the environment to the smallest facets of our everyday lives.


Adrian Crowley
Monday, May 9th, 2005, 3pm - 6pm
on
Irene Trudel's show
Sonorous and sweet, Adrian Crowley's music skirts the edge of the melancholic side of life without self pity.

Though Undertones broke up in 1983, they reformed in 2003 with all original band members except for a new singer.

Bad Posture
Saturday, April 9th, 2005, 3pm - 6pm
on The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T

This classic 80s San Franciso hardcore band reunites for an exclusive live set on the Cherry Blossom Clinic! Their song "GDMFSOB" is a hardcore classic, and they even figured out how to play an FCC-friendly version! 7' tall frontman 4Way can be seen around town with his current band Suicide King (and teaching high school English in Brooklyn!), but this will be one of your only chances ever to hear the original Bad Posture live! Don't miss it!


Brunch Mummies
Thursday, April 7th, 2005, 11pm - 2am
on Pat Duncan's show

The first time Brunch Mummie front man Bruce Wingate played on Pat's show was 22 years ago, (in a band called The Fartheads). His most recent appearance was in 1996 for the reunion of seminal NJ hardcore band Adrenalin OD. If he could stop one kid from making the same mistakes he did, it will all have been worth it.


Roy Head
Thursday, April 7th, 2005, 8pm - 11pm
on
Music To Spazz By with Dave the Spazz
Dave the Spazz chats with Gulf Coast Rock & Soul legend Roy Head. The acrobatic King of Swamp Pop scored huge hits in the sixties with insane stompers like "Treat Her Right," "Just A Little Bit," "Get Back," and many others. Roy will reveal his three secrets to longevity and confirm that, yes, he's still doing mid-air flips-insurance companies be damned!


Josh Korwin
Wednesday, April 6th, 2005, 2am - 6am
on
Coffee Break For Heroes & Villains with Noah
Coffee Break for Heroes and Villains will be proud to present the pseudointellectual musical stylings of Josh Korwin in his on-air debut. Known mostly for his eclectic graphic design and a one-time live DJ appearance in 1997, the New Jersey native is an avid connoisseur of musical entertainment. This guest chef brings a different set of flavors to the table than are found on Coffee Break's regular menu. Expect the specials of the day to include some downtempo, synthpop, francophilia, something old and something new along with your late night snack.


"The Death of Barry Seal"
Tuesday, April 5th, 2005, 6pm - 7pm

Part #503 in Dave Emory's "For the Record" series


Ike Turner
Saturday, April 2nd, 2005, 6pm - 8pm
on
Fool's Paradise with Rex
Rex raps with R&B godhead Ike Turner. Ike will reveal the allure of the whammy, the meaning of "bootie lips", and the wisdom of Miss Boozie. Listen and learn this Saturday night between 6 and 8 PM.


The Ponys
Saturday, April 2nd, 2005, 3pm - 6pm
on The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T

The Ponys' album 'Laced With Romance' on In The Red was one of the best rock albums of last year. Their music calls to mind the dark, evocative sound of bands like the Rock*A*Teens, the Chills, and even Television in places. Hear their live session and see why the Ponys were in Terre's Top 5 albums of 2004, then go check them out at Bowery Ballroom with Bloc Party on April 7th and 8th.

40 Ozs. and a Turntable with the Cosmic Cowboy
The Cosmic Cowboy fills in for Pseu and takes a look at the ongoing police crackdown on the critical mass bicyle ride. Calls from arrestees and their legal defenders should shed some light on this continuing lunacy.


Heston Rifle
Thursday, March 31st, 2005, 11pm - 2am
on
Pat Duncan's show
Heston Rifle look like five regular people. That's why it's all the more confounding when they pick up their instruments and without a word let loose a barrage of deep melodic noise that's beautiful, unorthodox, and seemingly of another sonic realm. Over skittering drums, vicious repeating rhythmic phrases, and a wandering violin that conveys ghostly expanses and tragic insistence, these NY sound sculptors create crescendos for an urgent future. It's post-rock without the presupposition of easy listening.
