Joy Gregory, Writer of "The Shaggs: Philosophy of the World" Play
Wednesday, May 25th, 2011, Noon - 3pm
on
Miniature Minotaurs with Kurt Gottschalk
Forty years ago, the Shaggs were notoriously the worst rock band ever. Their album, masterminded and funded by their father, was mocked for its strange and atonal naivety and championed by Frank Zappa and others. Now, the story is being told in an off-Broadway production. Playwright Joy Gregory comes to the Miniature Minotaur cave to discuss the band and making a musical about bad music.


Arrington de Dionyso's Malaikat dan Singa
Tuesday, May 24th, 2011, 6am - 9am
on Marty McSorley's show

Blue Sausage Infant and Violet
Monday, May 23rd, 2011, 3pm - 6pm
on
Scott Williams's show
Blue Sausage Infant (BSI) and Violet are 2 long-reigning stars of the inexplicably obscure DC electro/experimental/noise scene. Violet produces subtle deep-listening cold and distant textures through the use of not much more than a zither and a bunch of toy robot bugs. BSI warms things up a bit with some beats, lapsteel loops and the odd human voice. Both represent the excellent DC label Zeromoon and are major architects behind the annual Sonic Circuits festival.


Redhooker
Monday, May 23rd, 2011, Noon - 3pm
on Irene Trudel's show

Named after a remembered year of sadness and isolation in an industrial quarter of Brooklyn, Redhooker once again brings their intertwining strings and sounds to the WFMU studios. The ensemble will preview some lovely new music they'll be performing at Merkin Hall on Thursday, May 26th as a part of the Tribeca New Music Festival. Redhooker's in-studio performance will feature the newest member of the group, Derek Muro on saxophone and will also highlight the group's violinist Maxim Moston doubling on the Rhodes piano through his marriage-straining gaggle of boutique analog effects pedals.


Mammal of Paradise
Sunday, May 22nd, 2011, 6am - 9am
on Beastin' The Airwaves! with Keili

Keili didn't know there was such a thing as "catchy nu-gaze" until she heard her favorite new band, Brooklyn's own Mammal of Paradise, for the first time. Discover like Keili did, how minor chords and repetitive beats can be beautiful without being depressing.


Rapoon / Promute
Sunday, May 22nd, 2011, 3am - 6am
on
Noise and Syrup with Jeff M
Robin Storey and Shaun Sandor stopped by to do two improvised sets for Noise and Syrup.  Storey, who has long worked as Rapoon, and was a co-founder of legendary outfit Soviet France (zoviet-france), assembles a textured and trance-like collage of ethnic loops, radio samples and various sounds of unknown origins. Sandor performing as Promute performs a sparser combination of improvised metal and synth, with rhythms rising and disappearing again. He also runs the label Blondena Music.

Banda de los Muertos - the lost Barbès tapes
Saturday, April 30th, 2011, 6pm - 9pm
on
Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg
Well, not really lost... it's just that technology failed us during the first hour of our remote broadcast from Barbès in Park Slope on March 26 - so Banda de los Muertos's scorching set didn't make it to the airwaves. But we'll right that wrong by airing their set this evening. Banda de los Muertos, by the way, is a stellar unit of NY jazz, experimental and multi-culti musicians playing the bombastic yet sublime brass band music of Sinaloa in northwestern Mexico - the first band in New York to take on this great tradition. And they hit the Brooklyn circuit again soon - for a big Cinco de Mayo show with Chicha Libre at Littlefield in Gowanus - plus another Barbès show on Saturday May 7.

It's a double dose of greatness this Saturday, so get ready to be rocked two times by Shannon & the Clams and Tyler John Tyler!

Dominic Lash & Nate Wooley
Friday, April 29th, 2011, 9am - Noon
on
The Long Rally with Scott McDowell
When Scott found out Oxford, UK double bassist Dominic Lash is currently living and playing in the States, he knew he had to ask him down to WFMU. Scott admires his holistic approach to free improvisation, utilizing (and expanding upon) the full language of his instrument: violent plucking or tapping of the strings, dense resonant bowing, rhythmic thumping or tapping the bass's wood, etc. Dom is adept at a range of styles (minimalism, lowercase music, Derek Bailey-esque free improv, jazz) and sometimes even uses them in all in the same passage, yet he plays with a sense of humor, sensitivity and spontaneous intensity that is worth witnessing. Dom brought along trumpet alchemist, improv expert, and WFMU pal Nate Wooley to spar and chatter with. Should be a doozy.

Moon Unit
Tuesday, April 26th, 2011, 3pm - 6pm
on
Brian Turner's show
One of the best bug-out psych ensembles to hail from Scotland in some time, Glasgow's Moon Unit's debut LP "Hell Horse" on the Blackest Rainbow imprint rained some serious sci-fi shred over the WFMU airwaves this past winter. Influenced by the frozen-space zones of UK combos like the Vibracathedral Orchestra and some of the best 90's skree from Japan's PSF label, Moon Unit lock into focus as often as they drift into netherworlds and foggy deconstructions where space and time collapse. Awesome sounds today. The band will be playing live in NYC April 10th at Death By Audio in Brooklyn as well.


Elks
Tuesday, April 26th, 2011, 6am - 9am
on Marty McSorley's show

Brooklyn power sludge outfit Elks stampede into the WFMU studios with a huge heavy sound reminiscent of KARP and Godheadsilo. Tune in, turn it up, wake up the neighbors and party.

Müller / Moore
Saturday, April 23rd, 2011, 9pm - Midnight
on
Daniel Blumin's show
Fresh off their terrific one-off appearance at the Numina Lente festival in NYC last week, Thierry Müller (Ilitch, Ruth) and Aaron Moore (Volcano the Bear, Dragon or Emperor) will be visiting WFMU to perform live. Thierry's been experimenting with sound since beginning his musical career as Arcane in the early '70s. His outings with Ilitch and Ruth have run the gamut from atmospheric drift to synth wave. A reissue of Ilitch's 10 Suicides album is forthcoming on Beta Lactam Ring this summer, so in addition to playing live, Thierry will be spinning bonus tracks from that album plus an assortment of tunes from projects past and present. You want more? Past guest on my show and intrepid sonic explorer, Aaron Moore, will be debuting tracks from the as yet unreleased Volcano the Bear album and other wonderments! Don't miss!

on
Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg

Bare Wires
Saturday, April 23rd, 2011, 3pm - 6pm
on The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T

The Cherry Blossom Clinic is honored to welcome back Bare Wires to the WFMU airwaves! Imagine if Yardbirds/Hollies songwriter Graham Gouldman joined the Flamin' Groovies instead of 10cc---the resultant band would sound something Oakland's Bare Wires, who mix punk temperament with the British Invasion's fondness for hooks and sonic scope. Having first appeared on the Evan "Funk" Davies show last year, Bare Wires return on their new tour with brand new songs! Check out the rest of their N. American tour this month (see their myspace page for tour dates) and be on the lookout for their forthcoming album "Cheap Perfume," due out later this year.

SCUO
Friday, April 22nd, 2011, 9am - Noon
on
The Long Rally with Scott McDowell
The duo of SCott Clark (drums) and SCott Burton (guitar) are SCUO. Representing Richmond, VA's fertile jazz scene, SCUO's stated goal has been to challenge themselves to write music that is simply too difficult for them to play. The music that emerges is precise, robotic, strange and minimalist, yet not without humor.  Imagine Hella's proggy virtuoso approach to noise rock (but in a jazz context) + the repetition and slow evolution of Steve Reich and you're getting close. And, yes, along with Long Rally host SCott, it makes a SCRIO.


Castevet
Friday, April 22nd, 2011, Midnight - 3am
on Wm. Berger presents My Castle of Quiet

New York's Castevet create introspective, complex black metal, with gutsiness fully intact -- that is to say, they're neither as oppressively brainy as Deathspell Omega, nor as lunkheaded as Carpathian Forest, and with force aplenty. Their debut full length on Profound Lore, Mounds of Ash, is a loaded document, with one great song after another. Castevet's songs take you through their considerable chops as a band, with that extra touch which comes only when the musicians can really manage their instruments with expertise. Death/grind heads will make the blanket statement that all black metal is overtly simplistic, but you'd be hard-pressed to make that accusation with Castevet. Without question, the songs on Mounds of Ash are grimy, riff-laden and monstrous, making Castevet somehow "pro" and "dirty" at the same time. What more could one ask of their black metal? As with the overwhelming percentage of My Castle of Quiet guests, Castevet have also opted to play absolutely live and in the moment, no pre-recording, do-overs or alt-takes. Don't miss a night of groundbreaking, modern black metal, as MCoQ continues its trend of bringing great local underground metal to the airwaves.


Steve Grauberger
Thursday, April 21st, 2011, 8pm - 9pm
on Sinner's Crossroads with Kevin Nutt

Alto Verde
Thursday, April 21st, 2011, Noon - 3pm
on Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock

Travis Just: "Innova"
Wednesday, April 20th, 2011, Noon - 3pm
on
Miniature Minotaurs with Kurt Gottschalk
Composer Travis Just of Object Collection presents a live excerpt of his three-hour modern opera Innova. With five vocalists, electric guitar, percussion and electronics, Innova is a raucous piece of Robert Wilson inspired nightmarish futurism. The story is set "within an urban grotto that evokes a cosmopolitan vision of productive decay and resonantly colliding languages," according to the producers. Tune in as they remake WFMU's Love Room into their own frightful grotto, and then catch the full production May 13-22 at Manhattan's Abrons Arts Center.


Blank Realm + Slug Guts
Tuesday, April 19th, 2011, 3pm - 6pm
on
Brian Turner's show
Two excellent exports from sunny Brisbane, Australia visiting Brian's show today. Up first, Blank Realm who create a levitating atmosphere built on improvisations that focus sharp into excellent, tuneful songs reminiscent of a grimier early Pere Ubu. Following up are fellow locals Slug Guts, who wage serious sax-inflicted junkyard reverb chaos with the spirit of Rowland S. Howard hovering close above. They recently did a split single with the Primitive Calculators and a full LP called "Howlin' Gang" on Sacred Bones records and are a stomping, Stooged-out, snarling sextet in the live forum. Hear both bands live today after they cris-cross the USA on their first ever tour.


Still Saffire
Sunday, April 17th, 2011, 6am - 9am
on Beastin' The Airwaves! with Keili

Keili can't say it better than Karla, Director of Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls: "Still Saffire is not just one of the most talented 'kid bands' around right now, they're quite simply one of the most exciting and interesting bands of any age. Their songs are pop gems, with some that will move you to tears, and some that will have you humming for weeks afterwards, all performed with a combination of natural stage presence and a lack of pretentiousness that should be the envy of bands twice (and three times) their age." Listen to them live, Sunday, April 17th, 6-9AM on Beastin' The Airwaves! with Keili.


Jowe Head
Saturday, April 16th, 2011, 9pm - Midnight
on
Daniel Blumin's show
Swell Maps were one of the UK's greatest bands of the '70s. No foolin'! Their DIY sound universe ranged from careening full-speed ahead off-kilter singles to brilliant head-expanding instrumentals with tasty morsels of post-punk experimentation in between. Tune in as Swell Map Jowe Head, Solihull's most esteemed musical emissary, stops by WFMU to spin influences, favorites, rare Swell Maps tracks and radio sessions and to chat about former, current, and future projects!

Saturday, April 16th, 2011, 6pm - 9pm
on
Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg
Washington DC's effervescent Elikeh serves up buoyant blends of Afrobeat and rock mixed with traditional West African polyrhythms. The band's sound is a decidedly pan-African musical concoction: bandmembers hail from Togo, Benin, Cameroon and Nigeria - as well as the U.S.A. Elikeh made a triumphant NY debut at Joe's Pub last summer and return to Joe's April 16 (tonight, that is) at midnight - with a stop just hours before the gig to rock WFMU studio B.
