The only upside to your upcoming break: short-timers can play all the prog they want!

This song is better than most blow jobs. I said MOST.

This Sabbath live in Paris 1970 concert film is a real treat: www.youtube.com...
No flashy playing, no flashy stage antics, just heavy metal band. Stunning.

Awesome Lugubrum track.

why are you waging a finale battle?

oh, yeah, I didn't know.
Avatar Fri. 5/31/13 12:57am Wm.:

Oh, and here I thought I was blabbing about it way too much...apologies. Will keep your turret warm.
  Fri. 5/31/13 1:01am KP:

Sorry to hear about this. Wish you well and will be eager to welcome you back.

Here's hoping your break is a relatively brief one, Wm.! Such a great program!
Avatar    Fri. 5/31/13 1:05am Rory:

I going to really miss MCoQ. So many great discoveries on this show.

I suspect you'll be going out with a rrrrooooaaarrrrrr tonight.

Avatar Fri. 5/31/13 1:07am tracy:

I guess I sort of knew, but took it as an empty threat as you tended to say the same thing every year. Nooooooooooooooooo.
Avatar Fri. 5/31/13 1:07am Wm.:

You're all very kind; I'm grateful, and I've had a terrific four-year run. So much amazing live music, and special guests; I've been very fortunate. This post pretty much explains things ... my-castle-of-quiet.blogspot.com...

thanks William for all your work on a fucking awesome show
Avatar Fri. 5/31/13 1:12am Wm.:

I said it *you* trace, and a few others—I don't spill my empty threats to everyone thankfully—I'd look a fool!
  Fri. 5/31/13 1:12am blee:

We will greatly miss your show Wm. MCoQ always delivered amazing music.
  Fri. 5/31/13 1:14am Adam in Portland and Lynnwood:

Wm., your contributions to the station are so vital. Irreplaceable in my opinion.
  Fri. 5/31/13 1:14am blee:

The comments board is an virtual obituary tonight. Eerie but appropriate.

William thanks...you are a pioneer!
so,I gues thursday's midnight drinks will not be the same ever!!!!,,
Avatar    Fri. 5/31/13 1:17am Droll:

Wm., As much as I'll miss the cassette brutalism, your new disco and show-tunes pitch was tops. When I saw Ken in the elevator today he said he already blocked out a 6-hour daytime spot in 2014 and an huge pay raise for you.
Avatar    Fri. 5/31/13 1:18am Droll:

Whoops! Sorry about spilling the beans on the new show so soon!
Avatar    Fri. 5/31/13 1:18am G:

Psst, Ken will quintuple your current salary
Avatar Fri. 5/31/13 1:19am Wm.:

You joke, but I've been listening to Sven Vath of late. ...

I've crawled up Klaus Schulze's ass and died there. Metal frays my nerve endings lol

Some people say that's what nerve endings are *for*

william, yr show will def be missed here in my lil castle of quiet at these hours in bushwick. you've turned me on to some great music over the past few years i've listened. hope yr back at it soon enough.
Avatar    Fri. 5/31/13 1:26am Droll:

G, Your kickback was quintupled?! You got shafted, most listeners got twice that, and even I got keys to the executive bathroom in the new Best Show wing.

Wm., The biggest gap on FMU, IMHO, is orchestral music. You should take over Bethany's turf.
Avatar    Fri. 5/31/13 1:27am G:

That's me, always getting screwed, and when I find out it's too late to fix it.

Cheers to you my friend! Don't go softly into that dark night! (I know you won't).
Avatar Fri. 5/31/13 1:32am Wm.:

Orchestral, sure, but post-war 20th Century—Stockhausen, Ferrari, Ligeti, Kagel, all those fuckers.
Avatar    Fri. 5/31/13 1:36am Droll:

Wm, Don't forget Pärt! Just a suggestion...
Avatar Fri. 5/31/13 1:38am Wm.:

No worries, I love Pärt! Too many great composers to mention. Like Rich Hazelton, I used to do work for La Monte Young and volunteer at the Dream House.
Avatar Fri. 5/31/13 1:40am Wm.:

I used to truck copies of The Black Album and the Pandit Pran Nath album around NYC and sell them to stores. Also used to help my ex-gf pack La Monte and Marian's vitamins! Got drunk and stoned with the composer more than once; he's a trip.
Avatar    Fri. 5/31/13 1:42am Droll:

Yes! Next show, for sure. Like a missing food group on the station.
  Fri. 5/31/13 1:45am Arvo:

Hey I can't get into any Pärt other than Tabula Rasa! The rest of it I've heard is the bad choral Christian stuff. It doesn't help that I'm doomed to be associated with him though his name is pronounced "Airvo".
Avatar Fri. 5/31/13 1:48am Wm.:

Tabula Rasa is his "In C" for sure, but there are other good ones; have a few at home, but don't recall the titles.
  Fri. 5/31/13 2:26am Adam in Portland and Lynnwood:

Yet another artist and piece of music I'm certain I would not have heard of anytime soon, if ever, without Wm.'s Castle of Quiet. Quite enjoying it!
Avatar Fri. 5/31/13 2:28am Wm.:

Alberich playing in NYC this weekend (tonight? tomorrow?), with Cobalt (!) and Cinema Cinema. The night and venue escapes me. ...
  Fri. 5/31/13 2:29am Arvo:

WOW that Voids stuff is great! total lo fi Jesu/NIN mennerisms but with the feeling! I always wondered if Justin Broadrick suited your fancy, although I always leaned to assume not.
  Fri. 5/31/13 2:30am Adam in Portland and Lynnwood:

Alberich, please visit the west side of these Discordant States of America!
  Fri. 5/31/13 2:30am blee:

Indeed, Alberiech is fucking shit up. Cadaver in Drag sounded amazing too. I'll shut up and just listen now.
  Fri. 5/31/13 2:30am duchess:

had to listen , been great, read comments as well, interesting you been listening to sven, saw him in sydney long time ago might hear you back here soon
Avatar Fri. 5/31/13 2:32am Wm.:

You assume correctly, except in Khanate. Voids is pretty much one guy, if I'm not mistaken, from Florida. Sends me individual mp3s via email. Thanks, Jon! ...Many friends have done the hard sell with Jesu—don't like the vocals....
Avatar Fri. 5/31/13 2:33am Wm.:

Plus, "Jesu" is just one letter away from "Jesus," and I am prejudiced! ... Hi Duchess!
Avatar Fri. 5/31/13 2:34am Wm.:

Yes, I set up a "Klaus Schulze station" on Pandora, and it's led me to some great stuff, Sven Vath included.
  Fri. 5/31/13 2:35am Adam in Portland and Lynnwood:

Wm., did you find the vocals repellent as well during Justin's Godflesh days, then, and I suppose now as well? Just interested...
  Fri. 5/31/13 2:36am duchess:

love sven have you just got into him?, i think you know i love my electronica, industrial stuff havent listened to his stuff for quite some time
Avatar Fri. 5/31/13 2:39am Wm.:

Meh, no the vocals were ok in Godflesh, but that whole project is overrated IMO. Everything's fucking "classic"! To my ears, he was just copping an existing style, calling it Godflesh—all the kids went for that badass name. Sorry, I just think the cat's output is over-praised in general. He's a follower, not an innovator. It's "hard" music for people who don't like it "too hard."
Avatar Fri. 5/31/13 2:40am William:

Yep. Just got his first CD. Haven't even explored the hard techno stuff yet.
  Fri. 5/31/13 2:42am Adam in Portland and Lynnwood:

That's fair trade. Thanks for answering my question. It was revelatory for me, but just a doorway through which to go much louder, darker, deeper. I'm thankful for that.
  Fri. 5/31/13 2:43am Adam in Portland and Lynnwood:

However, I also grew up in Juneau, Alaska. Pre-Bit Coin machine. ;-)
  Fri. 5/31/13 2:44am duchess:

let me know still bit of a luditte what pandora etc is wanna hear more noise!
Avatar Fri. 5/31/13 2:44am Wm.:

Once you've heard Carcass, Napalm Death, and some of the drum-machine-based black metal stuff, there's no going back to Godflesh, and I heard that other stuff first, so it colored my impressions.
Avatar Fri. 5/31/13 2:46am Wm.:

Pandora is online; it's a "radio station" that pretty much has everything ever issued on CD. Pretty much. You pick an artist, or even a song, and it bases / creates a station for you around that.
Avatar Fri. 5/31/13 2:47am Wm.:

www.pandora.com - may not have much noise, as that's come out on indie labels and cassettes for the most part, but there's loads of techno.
  Fri. 5/31/13 2:47am Adam in Portland and Lynnwood:

All of that harshness, along with Extreme Noise Terror, hit me at the same time, thanks to Peel. I was an 18 year old babe in the woods. Hahaha.
Avatar Fri. 5/31/13 2:48am Wm.:

I'd rather hear Atari Teenage Riot, more "fun" and less pretentious than ol' Justin B. No "art moves."
  Fri. 5/31/13 2:49am Adam in Portland and Lynnwood:

Godflesh = still impressive to me, but I've certainly been more excited about what I've gleaned through listening to this show.
Avatar Fri. 5/31/13 2:49am William:

Extreme Noise Terror I <3
  Fri. 5/31/13 2:49am duchess:

lovin this dont no wot it's called dont care

noise / industrail wotever!!! goin out with a bang
  Fri. 5/31/13 2:50am Arvo:

Maybe he was just the most iconic of the Industrial /Metal/ Rock milieu, because that's my perspective. I mean I will take Godflesh over Die Krupps any day of the week. Some of his releases are forgettable but the ones that are not are at least to me beyond mediocre. I don't care to argue, I can see your perspective, but that's kind of my point. People have said the same thing about Controlled Bleeding, that they were copycats, and I don't like everything they've done, but I see them as people who were following a creative chain of thought without being terribly nefarious. Of course, I wasn't there. Funny what perspective does, because I just don't remember anything striking about Napalm Death. They are good but maybe they did not massage my subjective regions enough for me to remember any particularly remarkable musicality. And of course, they were innovators. that said, I don't know much drum machine driven black metal, and I'm sure I'd love it.
Avatar    Fri. 5/31/13 2:51am Rory:

I don't like Godflesh either. Didn't that dude from Godflesh release Skullflower's IIIrd Gatekeeper. Awesome last hour Wm.
  Fri. 5/31/13 2:54am Adam in Portland and Lynnwood:

Eye hate god!
Avatar Fri. 5/31/13 2:55am Wm.:

Arvo, I'm trying to recall a name for you, a really great Norwegian 90s drum-machine hard black project. I'll have to look when I get home. As to Controlled Bleeding, this may surprise you, but I prefer the lighter stuff, mid-80s. Prefer neither their harsh noise nor what they're doing now, which is godawful.
Avatar Fri. 5/31/13 2:55am tracy:

Thanks for the Alberich and tonight's show.
  Fri. 5/31/13 2:56am Adam in Portland and Lynnwood:

Another fookin' brilliant salvo on the airwaves, Wm.! Thank you!
  Fri. 5/31/13 2:56am Arvo:

My stream is malfunctioning! Damn pop up player! Great show nonetheless! Thanks for all you've done!

so glad i listened 'tonight' !!
Avatar Fri. 5/31/13 2:58am William:

Yeah—Scum, Symphonies of Sickness, Reek of Putrefaction, all that stuff blew my mind. Carcass were the Zeppelin of crust / grind.
