Jowe Head and the Celestial Choir
Sunday, April 13th, 6pm - 8pm
on Gaylord Fields's show

Jowe Head began his musical career as a member of Swell Maps, which arose from the English Midlands in the late '70s to create two LPs of postpunk perfection. Then, starting in the mid-'80s, he spent a decade performing bass duties in Television Personalities, during what was that band's darkest period. In current times, while not painting or sculpting, he has furthered a longstanding solo career, the fruits of which can be heard both during this on-air session and at Union Pool in Brooklyn on Thursday, April 10th and the Cake Shop in Manhattan on the 12th, Jowe Head's backing bands have gone by many different names, but this current incarnation—known as the Celestial Choir—by pure happenstance is made up of close personal friends of the program's host.

Future Death Toll
Wednesday, April 9th, Midnight - 3am
on Wm. Berger presents My Castle of Quiet

Future Death Toll are an exciting performance and sound-art troupe, with a mighty presence on YouTube, and luckily for us, a library of terrific songs as well. Three orange jumpsuits seem to indicate that they are prisoners as well, though by appearances, prisoners of their art, or the world, rather than a Maximum Security incarceration facility. Musically, F-DT are a more friendly, but still weird-as-fuck Genocide Organ; home brewed and delicious. Sonically therein, lies the suggestion of everything from The Residents to DEVO, to the colorful roster of Rainbow Bridge Recordings; and it's on the strength of a self-released cassette alone that a LIVE visit to My Castle of Quiet and WFMU was proposed, track after track engaging in a way similar to the homespun multi-track charms of the original lo-fi cassette era of the 1980s, labels like Subterranean and Posh Boy; and what makes it apropos to the horror-shaped goings on of this show are the droll, apocalyptic references, the tone of the vocals, and the suggestion that one "just crawl into a body bag instead of going to work." There's also enough crackle, thump and jarring sounds to call this noise, though the relatively short, catchy tunes make it pop—pop-calypse, that is. Contemporary noise-heads won't know the difference, they'll jump-along, and those with an older, broader sense of underground musical history will enjoy the accidental or intentional references to a wacked-out attitude that sits comfortably alongside Nash The Slash or The Poetics. This is a band after WFMU's sonic heart, and we're throughly energized to see what they'll do with the opportunity to render a live radio set.


Radio Harvester #2
Tuesday, April 8th, 7pm - 8pm
on
Distort Jersey City with Reed Dunlea
Slice Harvester aka Colin Atrophy returns to Distort Jersey City for the second installment of Radio Harvester. The undisputed king of New York City pizza culture, Colin ate and reviewed a slice at every pizza parlor in Manhattan in his fantastic fanzine and website Slice Harvester. RADIO HARVESTER is a monthly interview based audio zine that is about COLIN interviewing OTHER PUNX at PIZZA PARLORS while they EAT PIZZA. You can hear a lot of chewing and GROSS MOUTH NOISES and that's the way we like it. This interview was taped at Casanova in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, the neighborhood where our guest Sue Jeiven gives tattoos at East River Tattoo. With conversation ranging from taxidermy to Louis CK to Jewish, Puerto Rican and Italian mothers to terminal illness, this is an insightful, hilarious, and sincere segment that you do not want to miss.


Celebrating The Feast of Shulcoth!
Monday, April 7th, Noon - 3pm
on Irene Trudel's show

As Edward Haber, one of Citizen Kafka's co-conspirators says, "Based on the lunar calendar, the celebration of Shulcoth has arrived. To determine the actual date, Mr. "Angry" Red Weltz commented thusly: “I've rolled the shards of 3 Boswell Sisters 78s, studied the entrails of a Howdy Doody hand puppet and read the soy sauce smears on a Wo Hop lo mein plate. All the signs say April 7th”. And so it shall be-- another celebration of the dearly departed Citizen Kafka on Irene's show.


Carsick Cars
Sunday, April 6th, Midnight - 3am
on 100% Whatever with Mary Wing

Calling themselves China’s most influential underground band, Carsick Cars have released their third album, “3” on the Beijing label Maybe Mars in February. For the new album, songwriter Shouwang has jettisoned the hard riffs of his earlier style to create sophisticated, shimmering songs, still based on his trademark drones and deceptive rhythms; and showcasing more than ever the extraordinary guitar playing that has characterized all his music. Like both of the band’s previous albums, the music rests on Shouwang’s intense, pop-inflected song melodies, which he and bassist He Fan and drummer Sun Heting, both of whom joined the band in 2011, tear apart in music that veers from repetitive, intricate drones to complex mood shifts. See them at the Bowery Ballroom on Saturday, April 5th, opening for Dean Wareham, or hear them recorded live on Mary Wing’s show later that night at 1 am!


Tipsy Oxcart: A New Generation of Balkan Musical Mayhem!
Saturday, April 5th, 6pm - 9pm
on Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg

It all began in the late aughts when Jeremy Bloom founded Balkan-style teen band Group Pubeski.

Tipsy Oxcart's cathartic caravan of youthful euphoniousness careens from FMU to shows at Greenpoint's Manhattan Inn on Thursday April 10th and Silvana in Harlem on Friday April 11.

Michael Walker, author of "What You Want Is In The Limo"
Wednesday, April 2nd, 9pm - Midnight
on The Evan "Funk" Davies Show

In 1973, three of the biggest bands in the world -- The Who, Led Zeppelin, and Alice Cooper -- embarked on career-defining tours in support of the landmark albums they released that year (Quadrophenia, Houses Of The Holy, and Billion Dollar Babies, respectively). The tours marked a watershed change in rock, re-defining everything from the economics of live concerts to how bands looked and sounded on-stage to what it meant to be a rock star. But they also marked the creative and/or commercial peak of each band.

In What You Want Is In The Limo, author Michael Walker captures these momentous events in rollicking detail. He'll join Evan "Funk" Davies on Wednesday night, April 2, to talk about how 1973 changed the rock music world forever. Be sure to tune in!

Seed Stock Records, Guest-DJ appearance #3
Wednesday, April 2nd, Midnight - 3am
on Wm. Berger presents My Castle of Quiet

Coming up on My Castle of Quiet's April Fool's Day 4/1-4/2 program, our third guest-DJ appearance from RB of Seed Stock Records. Like your host, but even more so, RB brings an excess of material for the 3-hr. allotment, and is an avid, maniacal collector of black metal—obscure cassettes, demos, vinyl, CDs, and CDrs—released by artists from the genre's regional enclaves worldwide, all assembled from his personal collection. In the past, these stints have been wildly popular with WFMU and MCoQ listeners, and I have learned over time that our guest has no trouble whatsoever filling out a three-hour program, so while we might hear a *few* of my own selections, designed to fit this night's particular mold, the programming will be largely meticulously assembled by RB of Seed Stock, the label having proven itself to be a clearing house for the most-select rarities and idiosyncratic oddities of metal's much-maligned stepchild of a sub-genre, constantly pressuring its own boundaries. So have your ears pricked, and your recorders ready, for this third installment of the most outlandish and comprehensive view of black metal that the global community has to offer. That's Tuesday night (4/1), Wednesday a.m. (4/2), midnight-3.


Nandas
Tuesday, April 1st, 7pm - 8pm
on
Distort Jersey City with Reed Dunlea
This weekend we are joined by the brand new Nandas from New York City. Nandas have a completely unique sound of dissonant punk with a mess of guitar, snarled drunk lady vocals, simple but direct bass lines, and mid tempo drumming. Catch them before the rest of the world does.


James and the Ultrasounds
Tuesday, April 1st, Noon - 3pm
on Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock

James Godwin has been holding down the bottom with precision as touring bassist for such Memphis acts as Jack Oblivian and John Paul Keith but now steps out front to lead his own band. James' self-recorded 2013 release, Lovers and Ghosts, captures a gritty lo-fi mix of the Memphis sounds we all know and love - garage rock, soul, pop. With nearly two years of solid playing with the band under his belt, James is ready to unleash new material that he says will feature a "broader spectrum of musical ideas, done in more of a live setting with the full band, as opposed to me tracking alone with tall cans of beer,and no one to tell me if what I'm doing sucks or not."


Extreme Animals
Tuesday, April 1st, Midnight - 3am
on Nat Roe

NY's mish-mash of Steve Vai shreddage, "Live Strong" bracelets, net art and Monster Energy Drinks will pay Nat Roe's program a visit for a live session, DJ set and interview. Some may know of the group through Jacob Ciocci's Paperrad zines or the amazing DJ stylings of @George_Costanza. extremeanimals.biz has the lowdown!

on
Therese's show
Back in the late '80s and early '90s, did you stay up late on Sunday nights to watch 120 Minutes?

Killing Horse Records will release their debut album 'Sighs' on April 15th. See them live at the Lamp Post in Jersey City on 4/5 or at the Court Tavern in New Brunswick on 4/18. Or stay up late on Sunday and hear them live on Therese's show.


Farewell to the Harry Partch Collection? + Joe Frank's "At the Border"
Wednesday, March 26th, 3pm - 6pm
on
Irwin Chusid
Harry Partch called himself "a philosophic music-man seduced into carpentry." His legendary instruments were designed and built by the eccentric composer's own hands over a 40 year period, from the mid-1930s to Partch's death in 1974. Since then his instruments have had a half-dozen homes on both U.S coasts. In 1999, they were relocated to Montclair State University, in New Jersey, where they were maintained under the custodianship of former Partch colleague Dean Drummond. However, Drummond passed away in 2013, leaving the collection in limbo. The college has made clear it does not want the Partch instrumentarium, so after this June the collection will be headed elsewhere. Right now, there is no elsewhere. Charles Corey, Director of the Harry Partch Institute, will appear on Irwin's program on Weds. March 26 to discuss the instruments, play Partch recordings, and solicit help from the Partch community. On April 22, Corey will direct Partch's complete "Hobo Opera" The Wayward at Carnegie Hall. It could be the last time Partch's instruments appear onstage in New York.

One-hour radio dramas by Joe Frank air alternate Wednesdays at 4pm (Eastern) on Irwin's program. On Weds. March 26th we'll air "At the Border," from Joe's WORK IN PROGRESS series. Joe offers philosophical reflections in the form of questions, stories, and absurd dreamlike experiences. Whatever doesn't kill you, makes you stronger, said Nietzsche. But, Joe points out, whatever doesn't kill you, can leave scars. Joe also ruminates about a 19th century Russian religious sect, "The Hole Worshippers," who exalted the emptiness left by God's absence.

Why Oh Why? with Andrea Silenzi

If you say the wrong thing or text too often, you might scare him away. PhD Researcher Holly Wood has been studying this phenomenon -- and it's not your fault. Her research is showing that guys under 30 in major cities aren't that hungry for relationships.

It's not that he's just not that into you. He's not into any of us.
