Advanced D & D with Donna Summer
Yes, we just couldn't keep him away. He's been on Re:Mixology, and you've certainly heard the hype by now. That's right "the best DJ in the world" (according to the German magazine "De:Bug") sat in with Donna Summer on the wheels of steel a few weeks ago and laid down some awesome, awesome tracks including a handful of originals from his forthcoming albums! He plays some wild stuff, maybe a tad more experimental than his newest CD on Tigerbeat 6, "Minesweeper Suite", but there's certainly no lack of intense breaks seamlessly mixed with everything from R&B to dancehall to Japanese noise! You won't hear this one on CD or anywhere else, so tune in you rabid dogs!

The Pedal Steel Transmission
Monday, September 16th, 2002, 3pm - 6pm
on
Irene Trudel's show
The Pedal Steel Transmission has been performing in the Chicago area for two years. Its blend of unexpected dynamics and distressed ambience has gathered a large local following. The band wears its influences on its chest, from the Velvet Underground to Can, to other more folk inspired artists as Japancakes or John Fahey, but with a vocal style all its own. The underlying current is still rock and roll, but the nature is improvisation. The band frequently performs amidst 8 and 16mm films that add to the group's fractured approach at songwriting.


Steinski
Friday, September 13th, 2002, 8pm - 9pm
on
Re:Mixology with DJ Jesuspants
What can be said, Steinski is responsible for every kid who writes "Turntablist" on his or her IRS form each year. The Godfather of sampling, Steinski is bowed at from all coasts and nations; thanked by DJ Shadow, Coldcut, Peanut Butter Wolf and countless others for inspiration. We think Coke even went back to the old formula because of him. A made-for-WFMU special tonight.

Pittsburgh PA sends us this powerhouse duo of drums and guitar and moog! This band is so rockin' and so original, you can't believe they get all that sound from just 2 guys! Think of the great power and songwriting of the Volcano Suns, early Urge Overkill, and Golden Earring. Now think of ALL THAT coming from just 2 fellas! DAMN! Their new album is coming out on In The Red Records this fall!


Joseph Suchy, Wolfgang Brauneis, Georg Odijk and Hrvatski
Friday, September 6th, 2002, 2am - 6am
on
Advanced D & D with Donna Summer
Joseph Suchy just released a new solo record on the Entenpfuhl label and has also released recordings on Grob, Tonschacht, and Whatness, in addition to touring with Mouse On Mars, playing on Burnt Friedmann records, etc. but none of this takes away from what a fine guitarist he is. Wolfgang Brauneis and Georg Odijk DJ as the A-Musik Soundsystem. Georg runs the A-musik label; Wolfgang runs the Tonschacht label. Together they run the A-Musik shop, proclaimed as "the best record store in the world" by many. They mix everything from pricey double-digit number art records to noise-tom-foolery, but artfully done, as only two insanely obsessed collectors of out-sound can. I have no idea what Hrvatski will do besides lob out the occasional obscure remark.

Christian Marclay
Friday, August 30th, 2002, 8pm - 9pm
on
Re:Mixology with DJ Jesuspants
Since the 1970's, New York City's Christian Marclay has challenged the role of what we now call "turntablist" and written some heavy duty introductory chapters for others to follow. In his works, the turntable and slab of vinyl become physical components as essential as the sounds encoded therein; scratching, breaking, scotch-taping and otherwise manipulating records to astonishing effect throughout clubs and galleries in the world, and now exclusively tonight for WFMU.


Kevin Blechdom plus Goodiepal

One half of the notorious Blechdom from Blechdom, Kevin Blechdom will create antics from her new Tigerbeat6 album "I Heart Presets." Simon Reynolds says: "Imagine some three-way collision of Tori Amos, the Frogs, and Stephen Merritt, operating with a studio outlay restricted to under $100. " Donna Summer saw Goodiepal play last year, and he says it was easily one of the strangest shows he's ever seen; a combination of frantic energy, Nokia radio commercials, madrigals played on the recorder, digital noise and a Prince Valiant haircut. Goodiepal will be supporting his latest album "Mainpal Action" on ski-pp.


Zod Tour
Friday, August 30th, 2002, 2am - 6am
on
Advanced D & D with Donna Summer
I don't know what Zod means either, but I do know this Milwaukee record label rules the earth like cruel mastodons! That's right - bratty kids with names like Emotional Joystick, Curtis Chip, Soplerfo and Destro invade the WFMU studios and thereby conquer the Advanced D&D program in the name of Zod. So what do they sound like? Zod has, in 12 records, redefined the sound of experimental noise, sometime pushing the limits of emotional speed-noise (think Philip Glass backed by 250 BPM drum-machines) and other times they are pretty and sweet and have lots of crackling and bleeping noises. Who knows what they are doing? We'll find out on very early on Friday morning what their barbarous plans will be!

Big Al started out in the Wildweeds-a Great 60's band from Connecticut, and then spent 22 years playing guitar in NRBQ. Since then, he's released a CD, written lots of songs for others, and become an award-winning songwriter. Al was down here recently to play a solo set and do some talking about things, especially the Wildweeds, whose CD is being released on August 6th. Join us.

Eccentric, DC-styled indie rock from Baltimore. Their distinctive sounds are comparable to everyone from Ween to Fugazi, and Devo to the Jesus Lizard. This live session is sure to explain why people have to grasp at straws to describe them.

Aircheck
The Mad Daddy, whose reverb-soaked banter sounded direct from Pluto, spun R & B through the early '60s in Cleveland before shooting himself in 1966. Also, Bob Lassiter feels the wrath of an angry 1980's PTL supporter, plus Jean Shepherd's "Straws In the Wind" from 1966.
