Inflatable Squirrel Carcass with Rich Hazelton
Just like last year (and the year before [and the year before]) Rich's off-air banter partner stops by to spin those little records that take up quite a bit of space on our shelves. One hour of DJ Husband playing 7", one hour of DJ Wife playing 7", one hour of revolving connubial bliss.

on
Night People
Join Dave and Sandy as they attempt to make radio history by hypnotizing the entire tri-state area as part of Dave's good-natured plan to take over the United States. He's read Braid, studied Faria and he's ready to put New Jersey in a deep state of Halloween related relaxation!


Conrad Schnitzler Tribute, Part 2
Thursday, October 27th, 2011, 3pm - 6pm
on
Strength Through Failure with Fabio
Part 2 of our special tribute to the recently deceased Conrad Schnitzler will air on October 27, with guest and long time friend of Schnitzler's Gen-Ken Montgomery. This program will feature Con himself speaking in excerpts from interviews and CONversations, a premiere broadcast of his only recording made specifically for a 7-inch record, another mix of a CONcert performed live by Gen-Ken, and a very special CONversation with Wolfgang Seidel who was a long time collaborator with Schnitzler going back to the earliest incarnations of Kluster, Eruption and other projects. Schnitzler was a key figure in the development of psychedelic rock, electronic and experimental music in Germany beginning in the late sixties. His influence cannot be overstated, and can be heard everywhere right up to today's electronic music. Rare and seldom heard works will be aired as well as discussion about the man himself.


Les Kitschenettes
Thursday, October 27th, 2011, Noon - 3pm
on Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock

One mademoiselle and five messieurs from Normandy, France, bring the sound and spirit of the French '60s to life in an ingenious way, recalling the era of Brigitte Bardot, Serge Gainsbourg, Ronnie Bird and all the others. To make everyone dance is, of course, the main goal. Appearing Thursday, October 27th @ Local 269 in New York (269 E,. Houston) and Saturday, October 29th @ Lone Wolf, Brooklyn with Los Vigilantes, The Above and The Eeries.


Peaking Lights [10am] & Pujol [11am]
Thursday, October 27th, 2011, 9am - Noon
on
Talk's Cheap with Jason Sigal

Aaron Coyes and Indra Dunis of California-via-Wisconsin's Peaking Lights note that their initials spell A.C.I.D. and describe their music as dub-pop-psych. 936, released earlier this year on Not Not Fun, takes the duo's distinct hypnotic tapestries -- as weaved for labels like Night-People and F' it Tapes -- to more refined heights. Peaking Lights visit WFMU on a New York trip that includes a show @ Glasslands, Brooklyn, Oct 28th, as well as the recording of their next album which may be inspired by the Ethiopian music they've been listening to (judging by this mix).

Nashville via Tullahoma's Daniel Pujol returns to WFMU with a brand new set of infectious, consciousness-streamin' garage rawk. Pujol's got a new 10" (Nasty, Brutish, And Short), and a revised lineup featuring a drummer named Stewart Copeland. Catch 'em at Brooklyn's Public Assembly on 10/22 (w/ Shonen Knife, White Fence and Grass Widow), on 10/24 down in James' New Brunswick NJ Basement, and on a Southward tour with Ted Leo and the Pharmacists (tour dates)

MikeQ
Tuesday, October 25th, 2011, Noon - 3pm
on Scones Radio

This week on the Scones Radio Podcast...

MikeQ is a leading figure in the modern ballroom/vogue scene. He runs the Qween Beat label, DJs left and right, and puts out a hefty number of ballroom productions and remixes. What does modern ballroom music sound like? MikeQ: "Weird, [expletive deleted], sometimes hard-hitting, dramatic, repetitious, half club/half house beats." Imagine a grittier, stripped-down B-more style built around a sample from Masters at Work's "The Ha Dance." Then, turn the sass up to eleven. Or something like that. Lately, the sound has worked its way into the genre-defying UK house/post-dubstep scene, with MikeQ brought into the Night Slugs and Fade to Mind fold. He also is set to release music on Diplo's Mad Decent label. Put simply, this stuff is a blast, and we're excited to present an exclusive mix from the man.

Guardian Alien
Tuesday, October 25th, 2011, 6am - 9am

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011, 3am - 6am
on Dark Night of the Soul with Julie

An ever-changing and evolving band since 1986, Black Tape For A Blue Girl slides across genre borders from rock to goth to ambient to cabaret. Mixing electronics and acoustic instruments with dark lyrics, their mournful beauty continues to stir emotions and transcend any classification.


Singles Going Steady & Sometimes Breaking Up
Monday, October 24th, 2011, 9pm - Midnight
on
Airborne Event with Dan Bodah
Dan will be spinning from his deep well of late-90s experimental, psych, and noise 7"s along with a lot of thrift-shop & yard sale finds, including Greek '60s & old pop 7"s. What fate awaits these little doughnuts o' vinyl? Some will make it through their allotted time and go on steadily to their natural end. A select, sucky few, however, will find themselves breaking up -- yanked from the platter and unceremoniously smashed to pieces in a cathartic sacrifice to Orpheus, the god of music. Every listener is unconditionally guaranteed to laugh out loud at least once and to be angered at least once during this show.


Alana Amram & the Rough Gems
Monday, October 24th, 2011, Noon - 3pm
on Irene Trudel's show

With a stark voice that creates a fragile, intimate presence Alana Amram grew up immersed in music as the daughter of esteemed composer/writer/poet David Amram and playwright/songwriter Lora Lee Ecobelli. Alana's band, The Rough Gems, were named after a phrase her father often used : “look for the diamonds in the sidewalk.” Amram's own delicate songs take on a rowdy, rawkus spirit, and on her latest album she covers the music of longtime Fred Neil collaborator Vince Martin. Alana Amram and the Rough Gems play live on Irene's show.


Acid Baby Jesus + Singles Going Steady
Monday, October 24th, 2011, 9am - Noon
on
Liz Berg's show
Not only will Liz be spinning her favorite 7" releases of the year, but she'll also be presenting a live set by Acid Baby Jesus from Athens, Greece (that's right, GREECE!). With their fist-pumping garage rock anthems clocking in at under 3 minutes apiece and some serious nods to the Buzzcocks, Acid Baby Jesus are the perfect band for Singles Going Steady week. The band just finished up tours in Europe (with Puerto Rico's Davila 666) and the U.S. in support of their new self-titled release on the Slovenly label.


Singles Going Steady Week with Ira the K and/or Georgia the H
Monday, October 24th, 2011, 3am - 6am
on

100% Whatever: The Execution of The Concept
Sunday, October 23rd, 2011, 3am - 6am
on
100% Whatever with Mary Wing
The description for the 100% Whatever program is: Music without words, words without music, and combinations therein. On Sunday, October 23rd, this description is taken literally, as Mary Wing plays nothing but instrumentals and spoken word tracks! That’s right, get ready for vocal-free tunes from around the globe, mixed with melody-free voices of all stripes; including poetry, audiobooks, self-help tapes, numbers stations, comedy sketches, and Mary’s personal favorite: foreign language instruction! Listen in, as the long arm of freeform radio gets dislocated from its shoulder socket! (Or, as they say in France: Écoutez dedans, comme le long bras de la radio freeform obtient disloqué de son plot d'épaule!)


Cosmas Magaya with Mbira NY
Saturday, October 22nd, 2011, 6pm - 9pm
on
Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg
Cosmas Magaya is one of the greatest master mbira players of Zimbabwe, a renowned keeper and teacher of deeply spiritual centuries old Shona traditions. He famously collaborated with ethnomusicologist Paul Berliner: He's heard on Berliner's classic Nonesuch Explorer field recording LP The Soul of Mbira and helped Berliner research the equally classic book of the same name. This great master will be here in New York for series of mbira, percussion and singing workshops and concerts from October 21 to 27. We're honored to bring him to FMU for a very special session. He'll be accompanied by Mbira NY, a rootsy offshoot of southern-Africa inspired band Timbila.


Zounds + Wild Flag
Saturday, October 22nd, 2011, 3pm - 6pm
on
The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T
Terre T is so excited to welcome Wild Flag and Zounds to the Cherry Blossom Clinic on October 22nd! Wild Flag have been the talk of the rock world all year long - the supergroup featuring members of Sleater-Kinney, the Minders, and Helium have put out one of 2011's greatest records, combining a full-throttle guitar attack with explosive songwriting.

And if Wild Flag's not enough:
Zounds were one of the UK's most legendary late-'70s anarcho/DIY bands before breaking up in 1983. But now they're back with a great new album as well as reissues of their classic back catalog. So pay respect to punk's past and future on the Cherry Blossom Clinic!


365 Days Project Retrospective
Saturday, October 22nd, 2011, 3am - 6am
on
Zzzzzzero Hour with Bill Mac
Bill Mac points a crooked finger to a website that practically discovered a subgenre of sounds that was revived by anal retentive collectors of recorded oddness rescued from Salvation Army outlets and the basements of second hand stores. Some words to describe the material featured would be: celebrity, children, demonstration, indigenous, industrial, outsider, song-poem, spoken, ventriloquism, etcetera, etcetera and so forth. One word to those in the know says it all – Otis Fodder. Stop by for a retrospective of some favorite selections of Mr. Fodders’ iconoclastic 365 Days Project from that magic year of 2003.


The Inflatable Squirrel Carcass Cinemacrocosm
Saturday, October 22nd, 2011, Midnight - 3am
on
Inflatable Squirrel Carcass with Rich Hazelton
Approximately 3 hours (maybe 2 hours and 45 minutes depending on how long Rich's on-air banter partner sticks around) of music from a variety of soundtracks. Thriller, western, horror, sci-fi, comedy, drama, spy, war, foreign, musicals, songs from, "songs from" covered by bands that you may have heard of, "songs from" covered by bands that you may not have heard of, etc. They're all here, or possibly here, as your DJ tries once again to live up to the Inflatable Squirrel Carcass Mission Statement: "Pray for liquid, hope for solid, and if it's neither, it's a gas!"

Friday, October 21st, 2011, 3pm - 6pm

Mr Matthews' True Color of Venus Revue featuring High School Confidential, with special guest Bob Bellerue
Friday, October 21st, 2011, Midnight - 3am
on
Wm. Berger presents My Castle of Quiet
Mister Matthews has been a friend, cohort and "responsible party" for the My Castle of Quiet program nearly since its inception. As a member of Telecult Powers, The Hex Breaker Quintet, and a performer of The Modern Rites of Pei with Telecult Powers and Lala Ryan (during WFMU's 2010 fundraiser), MM is one of players who's made our Studio B a second home, and it's high time that he was invited back to The Castle to put forth his remarkable solo work as High School Confidential. Stretching his legs a bit (as all good friends of the show are invited to do), he also brings Mr Matthews' True Color of Venus Revue, in the artist's words, "another kind of thing I have been working on, caustic tripped out new age music"—which promises by its very definition to be appropriate to the usual, meta-occult electronics that are an indelible and near-constant parcel of Castle programming. Also on hand the same evening, another good friend, composer, improvisor, and Anarchymoon label head Bob Bellerue, who, in addition to engineering the live session, will be co-hosting and co-DJ'ing with Wm. Berger, your regular, weekly Bastard of Ceremonies. Three friends, raising a different kind of hell; don't miss it.


Spazz Comes Alive

on
Nickel and Dime Radio with $mall ¢hange
Consisting of Peter Gunn, N-Ron Hubbard, Reaganomics, and Criterion and yer host $mall ¢hange. Pure Fire started as a party years ago at SubTonic's basement and was one of the first places to hear grime and dubstep in NYC, alongside crunk, ragga, B-more, and all forms of underground raw dance music. Moving in various directions in the last few years (but always keeping busy with mixtapes, radio, and productions) expect lots of BASS and the obscure punk or montreal disco 45 thrown in for good measure.


Cut Copy
Wednesday, October 19th, 2011, 7pm - 8pm
on
Nardwuar The Human Serviette Show
Interview with Cut Copy (Melbourne, AUS)! Doot doola doot doo... doot doo!

The trio will be stopping by Duane's show Wednesday to perform live and give a quick interview before their show at Public Assembly that day.

Getting Out The Kinks
Tuesday, October 18th, 2011, 3am - 6am
on
Dark Night of the Soul with Julie
There's more to life than Lola. Julie slips on her kinky boots and lights up a harry rag to offer a complete immersion in the teachings of Ray and Dave. What does "I Go To Sleep" sound like with just voice and piano? Did Ray really write a musical based on "Around The World in 80 days?" What is the movie "Percy" about? And just who is this David Watts guy anyway? Some questions will be answered and others will remain as debated and ambiguous as Lola's gender.


Cuddle Magic
Monday, October 17th, 2011, Noon - 3pm
on Irene Trudel's show

The musical collective known as Cuddle Magic is rather fond of filming videos traveling through the rooms and hallways of their apartments, charmingly accentuating the close-knit feel of the ensemble. Sometimes swelling to 9 musicians or more, their music takes on an acoustic gentleness that is a heart-felt blend of folk, avant-garde classical, urban and world music. Cuddle Magic brought like-minded musicians from Brooklyn and Philadelphia together, and their stage equipment, in addition to stringed and woodwind instruments, might include a plastic penguin and some oddly shaped lamps. Cuddle Magic brings their collective musicianship ro WFMU's "love room" for a live performance.


Olivia Tremor Control
Sunday, October 16th, 2011, 5pm - 7pm
on Gaylord Fields's show

Not only have the neopsychedelic experimental pop collective reunited after a hiatus of more than a decade, they are returning to WFMU to pick up where they left off during their resplendent 1997 live session on Gaylord Fields's program. The most overtly lysergic-sounding of the Elephant 6 bands, Olivia Tremor Control offer up their update/synthesis of the melodicism of the mid-60s' Killer B's (Beatles, Beach Boys, Barrett) with ample musique concrète passages and instrumental freakouts to enhance their glorious eccentricity.


Dave Q
Sunday, October 16th, 2011, 9am - Noon

Watts) who have a loosely poppy take on industrial darkwave. “We channel alien airwaves through a microwave oven attached to a bus,” says M. Watts.


Kristin Hersh
Sunday, October 16th, 2011, 3am - 6am
on 100% Whatever with Mary Wing

Kristin Hersh has been writing songs and performing since the early '80s: first with the alt-rock band Throwing Muses, and later as a solo artist and with her second band, 50 Foot Wave. Last year, she published “Rat Girl,” a memoir of her teen years; and has also authored a children’s book, titled “Toby Snax.” Throwing Muses has been working on their first new album in eight years; and last month saw the release of a 2-disc anthology collection, celebrating the 25th anniversary of their debut album. As the band begins a two-month tour of Europe and Great Britain, Kristin stops by WFMU to sing her deeply personal songs and share some stories from her book.


Slow Jams Special
Sunday, October 16th, 2011, Midnight - 3am
on
Surface Noise with Joe McGasko
Ready to make a baby? We're here to help! This special edition of Surface Noise is devoted to nothin' but slow jams, those slinky and seductive R&B jams that are probably responsible for most of you being here. Golden-era smoothies from the 70s sidle up next to the latest bootknockers in this epic exploration of the art of getting busy. Scented candles and body oil are optional.


Matthias Loibner & Nataša Mirković - de Ro

on
Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg
In the acclaimed duo Ajvar & Sterz, Austrian hurdy gurdy virtuoso Matthias Loibner teams up with superb Bosnian singer Nataša Mirković - de Ro.

Matthias and Nataša crank it up for us live in the studio tonight.


Sloan
Saturday, October 15th, 2011, 3pm - 6pm
on The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T

Terre T is excited to welcome the amazing Sloan back to the WFMU airwaves! These Canadian rockers just keep getting better – they are celebrating their twentieth year together – and their latest album "The Double Cross" (YepRoc) is one of their greatest records yet. Sloan write songs that are loaded with hooks and amazing harmonies – it might sound like sacrilege but they are best described as the Canadian Beatles!

Jeff Golick, one-half of the editorial braintrust at D:O, will drag a bag of records down to The Long Rally and select an hour's worth of music to share and chat about. We're not sure exactly what he'll bring, but Jeff's been on a solo jag at the moment, so expect lone horns and unaccompanied musical FREEDOM. Airs 10am-11am.

Offline : DO or DIY Goes Analogue!
Wednesday, October 12th, 2011, 8pm - 9pm
on
Do or DIY with People Like Us
That's correct! Did you know that since 2003 DO or DIY has never played a record OR a CD? It's all just files, files, files. So in preparation for Singles Going Steady Week (Oct 24-30), we've been crawling around under the bed and finding our old vinyl. And here's what we found in our home LP collection. No WFMU Record Library, no online blogs, just what we found, er, under the bed, and some reflections on how different it is to do a show without the aid of the World Wide Web.

Nelson Slater
Wednesday, October 12th, 2011, 6am - 9am
on
The John Allen Show
Singer/Songwriter Nelson Slater left one seventies document behind, his "Wild Angel" LP on RCA produced by Lou Reed in 1976. A colleague, friend, and former bandmate of Reed's at Syracuse in the early sixties, he was also a prolific hustler penning songs for the Brill Building during this time. At an age known for retirement he has come out of retirement as the STEAM AGE TIME GIANT!!! He stops by the FMU studios to discuss his recent reentry, we shine a mag light in his eyes, and he improvises a set of songs on the spot.


Dan Melchior und Das Menace
Tuesday, October 11th, 2011, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

Shepperton, England 's Dan Melchior emerged as a primitivist bile-fueled bard in the tradition of Skip James and Billy Childish (the latter of whom he has collaborated with, as well as being part of Holly Golightly's band). He eventually emigrated to the USA where he settled in to create a huge discography of releases solo and with NYC's great Broke Revue. These days he's relocated to North Carolina, and has continued to sidestep easily-pegged garage rock categorization to create some truly mutant sounds, irascible as ever with his Das Menace project and a new album "Catbirds and Cardinals" on Northern-Spy. More Chrome than countrified, Dan and Das Menace rip it up on Brian's show today!

It will be hosted by Ken along with Debra Solomon and Linda Simensky, the Vice President of children's programming for PBS.

on
Beastin' The Airwaves! with Keili
DJ Keili's favorite moments in WFMU talk radio. Also, in town from Melbourne, Australia, Deaf Wish blast out an amazing live set of thrashy art noise on speed.

Tune in and hear what Frank himself calls “some of the best and most original pop music that almost no one has ever heard.”


Up from the Basement!
Sunday, October 9th, 2011, Midnight - 3am
on
Surface Noise with Joe McGasko
Located deep within the subterranean hollows of WFMU is The Basement Library, a sort of audio orphanage for all of the records and CDs that aren't popular enough to be included in our main record library but aren't undesirable enough to meet the reaper. In this special program, Joe delves deep into the Basement Library catacombs to dig out some long-buried and neglected gems and (hopefully) make some surprising finds.


Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino
Saturday, October 8th, 2011, 6pm - 9pm
on
Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg
Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino - CGS - from Salento in Puglia, southern Italy, specializes in playing the driving rhythms of the pizzica dance and other ancient rhythms on traditional instruments. The pizzica is the local variant of the legendary mystical spider-trance-dance, the tarantella. Southern Italy has long had a lively traditional music scene teeming with compelling ensembles like CGS - but the bands rarely make it to the US: Though highly regarded since its formation in 1975, CGS is on its first ever North American tour. So it's a rare treat to have this superb group live in studio to play and introduce us to the deep musical roots of the region.


Peter Case
Saturday, October 8th, 2011, 3pm - 6pm
on The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T

Peter Case -formerly of the power-pop pioneers the Nerves and the Plimsouls - and incredible solo artist in his own right, stops by the Cherry Blossom Clinic for an electric and acoustic set. Peter Case has 2 recent LPs: "The Case Files" (demos, out-takes, a live shot & other rarities on ALIVE) and "WIG!" (great new songs on YepRoc). He’ll be playing songs from both featuring new and old material (AND he’ll even do a Nerves nugget or two!). Peter Case is massively talented and expressive muscian so don't miss his amazing set on Sat Oct 8 on Terre T’s show at 3pm. Check out his tour dates here.


London Calling
Saturday, October 8th, 2011, 3am - 6am
on
Zzzzzzero Hour with Bill Mac
Where were you in 1968? If you were like most kids on the planet during that point in time you were glued to your transistor cutting your teeth on TOP 40 RADIO!!! England top 40 wasn’t much different, influenced by the new ideal of the 60’s while desperately holding on to the final whimpers of Music Hall and Cabaret. In short, 1968 was a weird year. Tune in and listen to Bill’s obvious pandering to our friends across the pond.


Le Sacre du PrinceTemps: The Prince/Temptations Throwdown with special guest Moist Paula Henderson
Friday, October 7th, 2011, 3pm - 6pm
on
Miniature Minotaurs with Kurt Gottschalk

Steve Gunn
Friday, October 7th, 2011, 9am - Noon
on The Long Rally with Scott McDowell

Steve Gunn lugged his acoustic down to Jersey City in a ferocious downpour for this special psych/raga/blues solo excursion. Gunn works in the American tradition of John Fahey and Jack Rose, but only as a starting point, winding his guitar-journeys through John Martyn and non-Western strains of stringed repetition, capping off your headspace like a trip through Tangiers. Steve is playing shows in Europe as we speak, and check out his latest record, the Gunn-Truscinski Duo's "Sand City," on Three Lobed.


Black Twilight Circle
Friday, October 7th, 2011, Midnight - 3am
on
Wm. Berger presents My Castle of Quiet
Without question, the most innovative black metal coming out of the U.S. today is created by the mysterious collective known as the Black Twilight Circle. Based in Southern California, the grouping of ~a dozen bands release their material for the most part, though not exclusively, on their own Crepusculo Negro records, representing a nearly self-sufficient creative organization. The many, talented bands in the BTC run the gamut from hardcore punk to more traditionally inspired bm, at the same time weaving in elements of psychedelia, Mayan folk music and lore, and new, expansive powers so fresh as to defy description (for example, how does one pin down with words the magnetic and mighty essence of a band like Arizmenda?) As part of their first-ever East Coast tour as a collective, the Black Twilight Circle visit WFMU's My Castle of Quiet, where each of five (or perhaps more?) bands will give a brief but salient representation of their material. Expect to hear short, surging sets by Kallathon, Arizmenda, Dolorvotre, Haunting Presence, and Volahn.


The Mighty Fine
Thursday, October 6th, 2011, Noon - 3pm
on Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock

New York meets New Orleans for a gritty sound the Brooklyn-based band describes as rump-shakin' garage soul. Download their sizzling new single 'Black Train' for free at drugfrontrecords.com. Their new LP “Get Up To Get Down” - with guest Mick Collins! - comes out Oct. 25th.


Daniel Higgs live set from ATP December 2010 (Minehead,UK)
Thursday, October 6th, 2011, 3am - 6am
on
Mike Van Laar
Daniel Higgs may be best known as the lead singer of the Baltimore, MD band Lungfish, but his visual art and amazingly varied solo works implementing long neck banjo and the Jew’s Harp have won him many followers as well. Some recent releases include collaborations with Twig Harper as well as the Skull Defekts. In December of 2010 he was part of the incredibly diverse lineup of the Godspeed You Black Emperor!-curated ATP Festival from Minehead, England and we will be airing his live set from that very show. So set your clocks and join us for an early morning sermon you won't want to miss!


Farewell Broadcast
Thursday, October 6th, 2011, Midnight - 3am
on
Coffee Break For Heroes & Villains with Noah
Tune in as Noah says goodbye to the Garden State. Moving out of New Jerusalem will bring the end to the 3 hour hip-hop show that's graced the airwaves on WFMU for the last 7 years. Joining the coffee breakers will be Slice-of-Spice Records, ReDef Records, producer K-Def (Ghostface, Real Live, Lords of the Underground) and legendary MC / producer / leader of the D.I.T.C. Lord Finesse. Static, Tune, Adjust and Listen!


The Notekillers
Wednesday, October 5th, 2011, 9pm - Midnight
on The Evan "Funk" Davies Show

The Notekillers started out in Philadelphia in the late '70s, shoehorning their instrumental "song-structures" into a disinterested Philly punk scene. They went on to play shows in New York City with the likes of The Feelies, The Bush Tetras and Glenn Branca. Ultimately, however, the band went dormant just as -- unbeknownst to them -- Thurston Moore was including the Notekillers on a mixtape for fellow members of Sonic Youth when that band was just starting out...

Fast-forward to 2004. Improbably, Moore releases a collection of Notekillers recordings from 1977-1981 on his Ecstatic Peace label to great critical acclaim. Even more improbably, the band starts gigging and recording again, leading to the release of their very first full-length album in 2010, We're Here To Help (Prophase). Now seven years into their second life, the band plays live on WFMU! Tune in to the Evan "Funk" Davies show at 9pm on Wednesday, October 5, and hear the live set that's been 35 years in the making! And catch Notekiller David First playing with Kid Millions as the band "Matter Waves" at the Stone on Saturday, Oct. 22!
