2004 Marathon Headquarters

Welcome to the Janitor From Mars 2004 Marathon Headquarters at WFMU. If you aren't familiar with the station, the fund-raising process, or how the premium ties in with either, please visit the WFMU Marathon page and the DJ premium page to find out more.

This year, we are pleased to announce Twenty Years / One Second, the 2004 JFM premium CD. Picking up where last year's Stop the Clock left off, this year's premium expands its contemporary offerings to a full 68 minutes. As with the 2003 premium, the sheer diversity of today's Japanese underground is fully on display, with contributions that run the gamut from minimal improvisation to freaked-out jams and from guitar & laptop melancholia to good old-fashioned rock & roll.

Included below is a copy of the CD's liner notes.
