For the uninitiated, Toldeo, Ohio's Puffy Areolas bring to mind the blasted, parental hope one would get from combining the DNA of The Germs, Hawkwind, Drunks With Guns, and Brainbombs.

Spain's cathartic, charismatic La Troba Kung Fu is the offspring of the late great band Dusminguet.

Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza
Kenzo means it when he calls this 3-hour live show his last ever improvised sound collage experiment, turning available fragments of noises, music, last week's show, and perhaps your phone calls into a melange of varying flavors. You are in a maze of twisty passages, all alike.

Friday, December 26th, 2008, 6pm - 7pm
on
The Media Squat with Douglas Rushkoff
This participatory radio show looks at both sides of Life Incorporated: how life has been literally "incorporated" by business and economics, and how can we incorporate LIFE back into our world: local commerce, community, social currency, and other emerging forms of participatory culture. This isn't pure 60's or Whole Earth radicalism and self-sufficiency (though it's certainly related) but a 21st Century, cyberpunk reclamation of all technologies and social contracts as essentially open source, up for discussion, and open to modification.


A Dave the Spazz Xmas Fiasco
Thursday, December 25th, 2008, 8pm - 11pm

Why do you spend all your money on these weird records?


Nick the Bard sings Slayer and more
Wednesday, December 24th, 2008, Noon - 3pm
on
Kenny G's Hour of Pain
Ah Christmas.? A time to gather around the fireplace with family, sit back, and reflect over thoughts of war, murder, gang violence, nuclear assault, back street gambling, and fishies. All provided in an a capella style. Nick the Bard returns to do as such for the last time this year on Kenny G's show, when he'll perform the classic album "Seasons in the Abyss" by Slayer in it's entirety, and then some time later in the same show, he's back to offer up a mix of singles that he just wants to do that full album performances are holding him back from, for assorted reasons. No hints to what they'll be, just tune in to hear it all. So sit back, relax, listen in, and forget about the burning turkey that'll make your Christmas tree into the flaming death trap you secretly wanted it to be. You know, for the inheritance. Yup.


Ducktails
Wednesday, December 24th, 2008, 2am - 6am
on Marty McSorley's show

Ducktails stops by the WFMU studios to treat your ears to the soothing sounds of his dreamy, loopy, twangy goodness.  Ducktails builds a sweet pillow of sound for the insomniac's ears and rests your head down nicely, but some how keeps your foot tapping. The perfect sound track to all your lucid dreams. Listen to it now and look forward the LP that is about to drop on Not Not Fun.

The Codger's music programming will be interspersed with personal recollections that are colorful, if delusional. Welcome Courtney T. Edison, the Old Codger, back to the WFMU airwaves on December 22. He's eager to stick his chromium stylus in your groove!

Barnacled
Tuesday, December 16th, 2008, 9am - Noon

New York/Miami DJ-producer Michna is a total freak for ghetto-blasting booty bass that you hear rumbling out of low riders all across the south. He's also a true techno freak and former skateboarder, and a seriously deep video gamer as well. Shortly: his DJ sets are funny, heavy, and will make all your friends shake it. If they don't shake it, you can go ahead and stop being friends with them. His releases as Egg Foo Young, with the group Secret Frequency Crew, and most recently as Michna on the Counterflow, Touchin' Bass, Schematic, Mass Transit, and Ghostly labels traverse weird and fun worlds - check him out around town and on his latest Ghostly release, "Magic Monday," and of course on 12/15 with Trent on Sound and Safe.


Tall Firs
Monday, December 15th, 2008, 3pm - 6pm
on Irene Trudel's show

Angular rock at a loping pace might be a quick way of describing Tall Firs. The trio of Dave Mies, Aaron Mullan and Ryan Sawyer say of their music: "the results are like a fine cough syrup: A confusing, bittersweet concoction laced with just enough speed to keep you feeling a bit better about the world of sickness closing in around you." Writer David Fricke described one Tall Firs live set in his Fricke's Picks column: "A gently uplifting highlight of my...weekend...a psychedelic-folk tangle of spider-leg-guitar arpeggios and hazy, bong-room singalong harmonies." They stop by WFMU to play live.

Join Kenny G as he welcomes Toronto-based plunderphonist and WFMU fave Brian Joseph Davis. Best known for his "Yesterduh" project (wrong lyrics sung to "Yesterday"), Davis will be bringing short edits of the longer stuff, some rarities and a special piece he made just for the show, kind of a cover of "Kenny G Whispering Marx" that he calls "Whispering Film Theory." Guaranteed to annoy. You have been warned.


Cheap Time
Tuesday, December 2nd, 2008, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

With their rough-yet-economically-streamlined three minute anthems, this Nashville trio perfectly boil down the essential elements of snotty Killed By Death primitive punk, Sparks angularity, and glam-inspired power pop hooks perfected by the likes of Milk N' Cookies and Redd Kross (in fact RK's Steve McDonald produced their debut for In the Red Records). In a sea of garage rock combos getting in line to replicate each other, Cheap Time take a somewhat deviant path and nail some great sideways references from across the board. Turn them up this afternoon on Brian's show, and see them live all over NYC from November 20-22nd.


Morgan Geist of Environ Records (DJ Set) AND El Guincho (Live Set)

Then at about 10, a live set from Barcelona's El Guincho. Picture a golden-falsetto'd genius on the beach in Portugal with a laptop, drum machines, banjos, lots of effects units, fun hand percussion things, and breezy alcoholic beverages, and you'll be somewhere in the right universe.


Xiu Xiu

Bay Area avant garde popsters Xiu Xiu make their first visit to WFMU.

Jerusalem and the Starbaskets
Tuesday, November 25th, 2008, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

Jeremy Freeze and Kim Sherman make up this excellent duo out of Columbia, Missouri whose sporadic vinyl releases have clanged over our airwaves over the last couple of years. They're a most appealing hybrid of Velvets/New Zealand psych-pop worship, while turning up the levels on a splattery DIY ethic drenched in the wilder experimental moments of bands like the Hospitals.


The Shrubs
Tuesday, November 25th, 2008, Noon - 3pm
on Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock

Jack Dangers of Meat Beat Manifesto AND End DJ Set full of Laughter
Monday, November 24th, 2008, 8pm - 11pm
on
Sound and Safe with Trent
Double-header: at 8:00, tune in to hear the psychedelic-disco-darksurf-Frenchwave-breakbeat-mangling DJ End. He'll be celebrating the release of his new album "A Girl Called Trouble" with a full hour of laughter. That's right, laughter. Real audio laughter.

At 9:30 - There is no one with a deeper, darker, and more pounding sense of music humor than Jack Dangers. For more than 20 years, he's been finding new ways to find, deconstruct, and re-present beats and samples in funny, weird, and scary ways; add to that a lot of talent on actual instruments and a feverish devotion to low end synthesis and you've got Meat Beat Manifesto, the band now touring along with a mindblowing music-coordinated widescreen visual cut-up show (and a live, live live drummer) to support its 11th album "Autoimmune." Dangers has worked with everyone from the Bee Gees to Merzbow (and, actually, kind of put out music that sounds like a cross between the two of them...or something), and he'll be brining his gear into the WFMU studios for a live session on Sound and Safe with Trent. Get your nice speakers hooked up!


Lacrymosa
Monday, November 24th, 2008, 3pm - 6pm
on Irene Trudel's show

Lacrymosa is the solo-moniker of Caitlin Pasko. The 20-year-old from Virginia Beach, VA, following a classical upbringing, and quickly showed a preternatural genius for piano-driven impressionistic songs. Pasko's musical style is a dramatic melding of Regina Spektor, Kate Bush, and maybe even a touch of Laura Nyro. Lacrymosa plays a few live tunes on WFMU.


Red Dawn II and Golden Triangle
Monday, November 24th, 2008, Noon - 3pm
on
Liz Berg's show
Brooklyn 'Killed By Death'-esque punk band Red Dawn II spit and snarl their way through a quick set of hardcore tunes for the short-attention-spanned. The duo is Allison of Awesome Color and Wolfy (ex-Roxy Pain), and they have a number of releases on the cassette-only Party Store Music label. They've promised to bring along a pile of bad records to torture you with after the set, consider yourselves warned!

Then, a last minute addition: Brooklyn's answer to the B-52s (30 years later), Golden Triangle. Fun psychedelic party music with catchy boy-girl call and response. The band features members of Viva L'american Death Ray, ex-Angry Angles, ex-Roxy Pain and they have a show at the Music Hall of Williamsburg with King Khan and BBQ Show on Nov 29.

The Eskalators join Keili for a live session and interview. One of the cornerstones of the current DIY/All Ages community, this group of 10+ members, using a wide variety of stamdard and non-standard instruments, creates a sound that blends folk with punk and tops it off with a twist of marching band. They will also discuss their epic and highly anticipated subway shows.

Also on the program will be music photographer Leia Jospe (pronouned like the Star Wars Princess) who shoots for brooklynvegan.com and punkphoto.com. Leia's work has graced the pages of Blender, MySpace's frontpage and NME.

Aaron Cometbus
Friday, November 21st, 2008, 3pm - 6pm
on
Put The Needle On The Record with Billy Jam
Veteran punk rock drummer & author Aaron Cometbus has been gaining notoriety since the early 1980's when his pioneering East Bay punk band Crimpshrine arrived on the scene. Around the same time he launched the now legendary, long-running Cometbus series, at first a rough, stapled, handwritten Xeroxed punk fanzine -now a soft cover book format that is available only at small independent bookstores and music stores and which the author insists on selling cheaply - only a few dollars per copy. Before he exits the New York area next week to head west for the winter, the artist will stop by WFMU to talk with Billy Jam.
