Hailing from the Black Forest region of Europe, Institut fuer Feinmotorik have followed in the footsteps of Fluxus to re-imagine turntables as mechanical instruments in their own right. Drawing upon minimal electronics and abstract experimental musics alike, their live performances manage to evoke both of these influences in a unique and organic way. Make sure to tune in for this special live performance, recorded during a recent visit to New York. The set will begin at 8AM.

The Bruthers
Tuesday, January 13th, 2004, Noon - 3pm
on
Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock
In 1966, The Bruthers unleashed the legendary garage-punker "Bad Way To Go" on an unsuspecting world and promptly disappeared. Last year, Sundazed unearthed the group's unreleased recordings and released the full-length "Bad Way To Go" album. WFMU takes it a step further, unearthing the Bruthers themselves! Think major labels just started screwing young bands recently? Tune in to hear how it was done 37 years ago.

Journalist and onetime WFMU DJ Gerald Seligman founded EMI's Hemisphere world music label and is currently a music producer and consultant. He's also a founding board member of Freemuse, an independent international organization that advocates freedom of expression for musicians and composers worldwide.

The show will be in two parts: In the first half Gerald will discuss the Freemuse mission and explain how everyone can support and benefit from its efforts. We'll play music by artists who have had their music repressed (though probably NOT the Dixie Chicks!) Then we'll unleash Gerald as an unfettered uncensored freeform DJ free to play whatever he wants in the second half of the show.
