Their last appearance was several years ago but they're still a personal favorite of Irene's.

The band [revels] in unusual harmony, unorthodox instrumentation and unconventional structure, but the music [addresses] the ear gently."

Featuring the members of the Son of Earth-Flesh on Bone trio (Aaron Rosenblum, John Shaw, and Math Krefting) with Marcia Bassett (of Double Leopards and formerly of un). Four improvisations over an hour using balalaika, garden weasel, harmonium, bells, coffee can, guitars, and electronics, plus an interview with the band. Beautiful music for slowly shifting late afternoon sun.

Hurry-Up Offense
Thursday, February 6th, 2003, 11pm - 2am

Pat Duncan's show
Grounded by punk rock hearts that grew up on bands like H2O, Green Day, and Social Distortion, Hurry-Up Offense has gradually distilled a variety of punk, country, and rock influences into a distinctly explosive sound. Their new album, "Donald Moore," cannot be broken down into one theme, but rather one feeling of pure energy and aggression.

Read 'Em and Weep with Bronwyn C.
February is LUV Month on Read 'em and Weep! It's four full weeks of books about l-o-v-e, LUV. Books on how to find love, what to do when you've found it, how to make it stop, and what's that weird burning when you pee. We begin on Feb. 5 with a discussion of the most notorious Love Book of the last century - "The Rules," by Ellen Fein and Sherrie Schneider. The Listeners HAVE to read it! Yes they do, because we're gonna talk about it. Assignments for the rest of the month to be announced, but you *know* there's gonna be some naughty bits, and frequent mentions of the word "panties."


Chris Butler and the Cranks
Wednesday, February 5th, 2003, Noon - 3pm
on Irwin Chusid

The mostly studio-bound, hermit songwriter Butler, long ago of Tin Huey and The Waitresses, was a 1997 Guinness Book inductee for the 69-minute long "Devil Glitch," certified as the "World's Longest Pop Song." Making his performing debut on WFMU, Butler and company will present tunes from his albums "I Feel A Bit Normal" and "Easy Life." They'll also perform big chunks from "The Museum of Me," a recent collection of original songs captured on such bygone sound relics as wire recorders, wax cylinders, and antique tape machines.

Janitor From Mars with R. Lim
In November of 2002, New York audiences were treated to an evening of concerts from Fushitsusha, Tokyo's sui generis exemplars of rock's outer limits. Over the course of two sets at Tonic, Keiji Haino and Yasushi Ozawa demonstrated their total command over the mystic and sublime, ranging from meditative percussion and bass duets to psychedelic guitar mayhem. The Janitor From Mars is honored to present the complete concert in two weekly installments, as recorded especially for WFMU.
