Artist Track Album Label Comments Special
 
Set 1 (Listen to this set: )
Arvo Part  Como Ciervo Sedienta: V (track 7)   Options Orient Occident  ECM New Series  Choir, high & hymn-like, fairly spare. The title is taken from Psalm 42: "...as the heart panteth"   
 
 
Mic break between Sets 1 & 2. Background music for it: (Listen to this set: )
Les Chakachas  Love is like a Violin (track 4)   Options Arriba!  RCA International  Phat, sentimental sound. Feels like it's the slow song at the record hop.   
 
 
Set 2: from slow to psych. (Listen to this set: )
Death In Vegas  Girls (track 5: played from -4:14 to -3:02) (Listen: )   Options Lost In Translation (soundtrack)  Emperor Norton  Soft, dreamy, highly sentimental, sad, like falling into the movie. The song changes and picks up speed - but after the part we hear.  ***  
William Basinski  (track 2: no title) (Listen: )   Options The Disintegration Loops  Musex International  Delicate, soft, dreamy, introspective. Play at low volume.  ***  
This Mortal Coil  Fyt (track 4) (Listen: )   Options It'll End In Tears  4AD  Warm, rhythmic.   
Julee Cruise  Up In Flames (track 5: played from -4:39 to about -0:39) (Listen: )   Options The Voice Of Love  Warner Brothers  Bit weary-acid sounding, but also a warm soul-jazzy bass, dreamy.  ***  
Spacemen 3  Honey (CD 1, track 1) (Listen: )   Options Playing With Fire  Space Age Recordings  Soft & lush.   
Sciflyer  Burning Down The House (track 4) (Listen: )   Options Fair Weather Karma  Claire  Warm, glowing, soft vocals, introspective, highly romantic sound.  ***  
Bardo Pond  Dom's Lament (track 3: begun at -6:03) (Listen: )   Options On The Ellipse  ATP  Starts slow & melancholy, builds to easy & fuzzed psych rock, elegiac.  ***  
 
 
Mic break between Sets 2 & 3. Background music for it: (Listen to this set: )
Les Chakachas  Love is like a Violin (track 4)   Options Arriba!  RCA International  Phat, sentimental sound. Feels like it's the slow song at the record hop.   
 
 
Set 3: darkness, in slow motion. Mostly. (Listen to this set: )
Hafler Trio  (track 1: no title. Played from -66:40 to about -42:55) (Listen: )   Options No Man Put Asunder: 7 Fruitful & Seamless Unions  Die Stadt  Warm and dark, resonant, slowly throbbing, gradually changing, harmonic.   
Nurse With Wound  (track 1: no title. Played from -37:08 to about -13:07) (Listen: )   Options Salt Marie Celeste  United Dairies  A dark and slowly heaving sea, a creaking ship, a slow wind....   
Band Of Holy Joy  Prams, Piers, Bitter Tears (Side A, track 1) (Listen: )   Options The Big Ship Sails  Flim Flam  Quirky, almost warped and weary, like a slow motion nightmare circus. Not at all like anything else on this album.   
 
 
Mic break between Sets 3 & 4. Background music for it: (Listen to this set: )
Les Chakachas  Love is like a Violin (track 4)   Options Arriba!  RCA International  Phat, sentimental sound. Feels like it's the slow song at the record hop.   
 
 
Set 4: the old radio show portion of the evening. (Listen to this set: )
Dimension X  Almost Human   Options (none)    An old professor creates a robot in secret - until "Duke" shows up & teaches Junior to kill.

Duke "I never taught you anything evil - did I, darling?" Darling: "Yes, you did. Only you taught me to like it."

A science fiction series, this episode was originally broadcast May 13, 1950.

Mic break between Sets 4 & 5. Background music for it: (Listen to this set: )
Les Chakachas  Love is like a Violin (track 4)   Options Arriba!  RCA International  Phat, sentimental sound. Feels like it's the slow song at the record hop.   
 
 
Set 5: good and snotty rock/punk. (Listen to this set: )
Stickmen With Rayguns  Scavenger Of Death (track 6, begun at -4:53) (Listen: )   Options Some People Deserve To Suffer  Emperor Jones  Raw, heavy, even a bit of grindcore, great guitar.   
Flipper  Way Of The World (track 2, begun at -4:12) (Listen: )   Options Live At CBGB's  (none)  From November 18, 1983.

Iggy Pop  Little Electric Chair (track 1) (Listen: )   Options Skull Ring  Virgin  Prime Iggy, recorded with The Stooges. I think this is the best track. A new ep.  ***  
Rocket From The Tombs  Raw Power (track 1, ended at about -0:10) (Listen: )   Options The Day The Earth Met The Rocket From The Tombs  Smog Veil  Raw, drug-fueled proto-punk.   
Articles Of Faith  Buried Alive (track 1) (Listen: )   Options Complete Vol. 1 1981 - 1983  Alternative Tentacles  Great!   
Gossip  Non Non Non (track 2, played from -2:15 to about -0:34) (Listen: )   Options NYC  Dim Mak  Raw, low fi, live.   
Pink Swords  Prison Ground (track 5) (Listen: )   Options One Night High  Mortville  Fastest of the set. New punk, with a bit of a pop feel.   
 
 
End of show mic break. Background music for it: (Listen to this set: )
Les Chakachas  Love is like a Violin (track 4)   Options Arriba!  RCA International  Phat, sentimental sound. Feels like it's the slow song at the record hop.
