Flesh Lights
Monday, May 25th, Noon - 3pm
on Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock

They may be named after a sex toy but Flesh Lights are the real thing, baby! This Austin trio has the great hooks and tunes, the power AND the pop!


Pigeons (Dan Bodah fills in for Jesse)
Tuesday, May 26th, Midnight - 3am
on Airborne Event

Check out this live set from Pigeons as the band returns to WFMU when Dan Bodah fills in for The Frow Show. Their new record "The Bower" has been called "old new noise pop lullaby prog earthly outer space future sounds." That jumble of words just manages to begin describing the rich rural psychedelic pop vibes of this new record. The group features Wednesday Knudsen & Clark Griffin (ex-Sea Donkeys) and Rob Smith (Rhyton).


Nick Forté
Tuesday, May 26th, 3am - 6am
on
Ning Nong Radio
Many people know Forté as a guitarist for the likes of Rorschach and Raspberry Bulbs, but he has also released a considerable amount of work outside the realms of Punk and Metal. His impressive resume includes an LP on Schematic in 2003, an LP (as part of Christmas Decorations) on Kranky in 2002, and many other collaborative projects. His new solo electronic LP will be released by Amish Records June 2nd, and this live set will give listeners an idea of what to expect from it.


The Cellar and Point
Tuesday, May 26th, 9pm - Midnight
on Irene Trudel's show

Calling themselves a "garage chamber" ensemble, The Cellar and Point meld modern classical, downtown jazz and a touch of rock to form their other-worldly music. Drummer/producer Joseph Branciforte and guitarist Christopher Botta are childhood friends who made music together, resulting in this ensemble. Their sound is prog-ish, filled with eccentric electronics, soaring strings and a menacing vibraphone to a driving beat The Cellar and Point's debut, "Ambit," is out on Cuneiform Records, and they visit WFMU to play live.


Moondog: 99th Birthday Tribute
Wednesday, May 27th, 3pm - 6pm
on
Irwin Chusid
Moondog was blind, dressed in ancient Viking regalia, slept on 6th Avenue in New York during the 1950s, and was a musical genius. Biographer Robert Scotto revisits Irwin's program to pay tribute to the majestic Moondog for two hours on May 27 in honor of the late musician's 99th birthday. The show will feature recordings from the 1950s to the 1990s, reflecting the strange sounds and exotic beauty of one of the most underappreciated American composers of the 20th century. Moondog recorded with animals, self-made instruments, and tugboat horns; composed percussion pieces, chamber music, and works for 25 saxophones. Scotto is the author of The Viking of Sixth Avenue, the first full-length biography of Moondog. This is his fourth visit to Irwin's program.


Facialmess
Wednesday, May 27th, 8pm - 9pm
on
Infinite Distortion
For almost two decades, Kenny Sanderson has honed his mastery of harsh noise under the name Facialmess. Characterized by frenetic cut ups, moments of deathly silence interspersed with churning static blasts, an ingenious employment of sampling, and a thrilling unpredictability that speaks to the complete control of his craft, Facialmess recorded a session at WFMU while in the States from Japan during the Ende Tymes festival. Listen in on May 27th to Infinite Distortion with DJ Bosh at 8pm Eastern to hear his set as well as an interview about his musical history, influences, life, and other projects.

Beech Creeps
Sunday, May 31st, 6am - 9am
on Burn It Down! with Nate K

Beech Creeps formed out of a variety of Brooklyn outfits, including Ex Models, Knyfe Hyts, Pterodactyl, and Yeasayer. The trio plunges into the depths of rock's primordial sludge and emerges wielding a massive blob of fiery, lysergic skree. We'll put it this way: If the arms of the T. Rex were as powerful as the Beech Creeps song of the same name, dinosaurs might have actually avoided extinction, as the fabled comet would have been easily smashed to bits. The band recently dropped by Burn It Down! for a live set featuring songs from its self-titled debut LP on Monofonus.


Junk Boys
Monday, June 1st, Noon - 3pm
on
Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock
Their producer described them as bluesy boozy rock and roll, and we couldn't agree more! Ex-members of Organs and Dream Police.


Drew McDowall (ex-Coil)
Tuesday, June 2nd, 3am - 6am
on
Ning Nong Radio
Ning Nong Radio presents a live modular synth set by ex-Coil member Drew McDowall.
