Order and disorder in a freeform haze of terribly-played guitars, shorted-out electronics, found audio detritus, strange sounds from strange lands all around. Psych-punk-junk, collage, even pop. Lots of in-studio live performances to boot.

Upcoming events:

Tuesday, June 14th, 3pm - 6pm: Heron Oblivion live from WFMU's Monty Hall
On their debut LP out this year on Sub Pop, this relatively new Bay Area combo have forged a unique alchemy between elements of dreamy psychedelic folk and meltdown electric guitar freakery. And with good reason: their lineup includes singer/drummer Meg Baird (of Espers/Watery Love), guitarist Charlie Saufly of Assemble Head in Sunburst Sound, and Noel Von Harmonson (on guitar) and Ethan Miller (on bass) of the late great Comets on Fire, a band that recorded two blowout sessions on Brian's program in the mid 2000's. Today's session is a recording of a May 26th bill Brian presented with Endless Boogie and Chris Forsyth's Solar Motel Band that took place at WFMU's Monty Hall.

Tuesday, June 28th, 3pm - 6pm: Pere Ubu
Undoubtedly one of the most important bands in the history of the American underground, Pere Ubu emerged from Cleveland in 1975 to challenge art and rock music to step outside its well-trodden '70s safety zone. They're often credited with being thee missing link between the Velvet Underground and the late 70's punk explosion, but have also established a solid discography of records way beyond that continuing into the modern era, continually reinventing their own identity and always looking forward. Hence it's a rare and exciting treat to have them visit Brian's show today to solely focus on the material they released from 1975-82, as part of their "Co-Ed Jail" tour in the wake of two comprehensive boxed set anthologies of that period, currently out on Fire Records. We'll be hearing material from The Modern Dance, Datapanik in the Year Zero, the Art of Walking, and Song of the Bailing Man, and needless to say it will be an unmissible event in the WFMU studios! Pere Ubu plays the Bowery Ballroom (with Obnox) Wednesday, June 29th.
