Sic Alps
Tuesday, November 6th, 2007, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

If most so-called modern psych and garage bands seem to have trodden paths a bit too familiar with you these days, enter the Sic Alps, a Bay Area combo joyfully stuffing the Nuggets Box roster into a reverb-soaked trash compactor and extracting busted-up remnants at leisure. While the Alps' junkpile approach to classic rock via wasted echo-chamber vocals and lost-in-space mod guitars might sound like a bad trip to some, there's a real cohesion and weirdly tuneful vibe carried through the scuzz that might make their new LP Description of the Harbor one of your year's faves.

Monday, November 5th, 2007, 9am - Noon
on Liz Berg's show

We Are the Arm brings synthesizers and strangeness to WFMU from upstate New York. With sounds that could be filed under art damage and post-punk, We Are the Arm's paranoid songs are fit to be the soundtrack for a malevolent alien invasion (they've opened up for Gary Wilson, after all). Roll the Super 8 and prepare to submit to your overlords.


Francis Baudevin
Sunday, November 4th, 2007, 9pm - Midnight
on Stochastic Hit Parade / A440 with Bethany Ryker

Listen in for the world-premiere of a specially-commissioned sound piece by Swiss abstract painter Francis Baudevin. Drawing from dozens of albums from his personal collection of his experimental music, this new work is an extreme accumulation of continuous sound that can be at times a densely packed barrage of information, and at others, an extended moment of almost-stillness. The beginning and the end of the work is marked by a "jingle" appropriated from an early vinyl copy of Terry Riley's "In C".

This broadcast is the first of three programs on WFMU as part of PERFORMA07, a festival of performance art across NYC. Commissioned by PERFORMA Radio, this series expands the field of performance into radio-space by inviting visual artists use radio as an artistic medium.

We'll also hear other Peruvian styles, some vintage Colombian cumbia, Cuban electric guitar music, and whatever else Olivier comes up with from his bountiful collection.

Ed Askew with Joshua Burkett
Tuesday, October 30th, 2007, 9am - Noon
on Hatch's show

After languishing in obscurity for decades, the music of idiosyncratic singer-songwriter Ed Askew is finally getting the attention it deserves. "Ask The Unicorn", his 1968 debut album for ESP-Disk, has often been compared to the work of labelmates Pearls Before Swine. Askew's equally wonderful second album, "Little Eyes", was recorded a few years later but remained unreleased until the De Stijl label pressed a limited edition LP in 2003. This year, they've finally made it available on CD. Although Askew once accompanied himself on a kind of Latin American soprano guitar called a tiple, carpal tunnel syndrome now prevents him from playing. For this live session, contemporary psychedelic folk artist Joshua Burkett will be playing the instrument for him.

on Sound and Safe with Trent

You might know Wax Stag from his song "Short Road" that appeared on the Hot Chip DJ Kicks mix. Or you might not know Wax Stag at all, in which case you should get to know him. His bright, simple songs remind you of a simpler world where all you had to do is dance and play video games, but they're sophisticated enough to sit perfectly alongside New Order in a mix. Tune in for a special DJ mix from Wax Stag, and a little phone interview from the man himself, direct from St. Albans, UK!


The Budos Band
Saturday, September 29th, 2007, 6pm - 9pm
on Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg

The Budos Band is a dynamic young all-instrumental ensemble with roots in Staten Island. Their sound has Afrobeat and 70s funk at the core but the new album Budos Band II on Daptone Records also shows the influence of 70s Ethiopian music and jazz. This (very!) big band squeezes in to WFMU's Studio B for a live session.


The Armitage Shanks
Saturday, September 29th, 2007, 3pm - 6pm
on The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T

All the way from the UK come the newly re-activated Armitage Shanks, blasting through the U.S. on their reunion tour! Always the rawest and punkest band of the whole Medway scene, the Shanks were the opening act for Billy Childish and Thee Headcoats for nearly 10 years at the Dirty Water club. Terre is psyched, honored, and a little bit scared to have these legends come down to WFMU and rip our eardrums apart! Damn!

Give The Drummer Some with Doug Schulkind
British sax titan Mike Osborne, who passed away September 19, was one of the brightest lights on the glittering London jazz scene of the 1960s and '70s. Celebrating the legacy of this brilliant improviser, Give the Drummer Some will devote the entire three hours to the man's incandescent recordings. Tune in on September 28 -- what would have been Osborne's 66th birthday -- for a loving tribute to this heartbreakingly underappreciated genius. Listen to Mike Osborne's 1976 duet with Stan Tracey Back to Berks. (Real Audio)

on
Coffee Break For Heroes & Villains with Noah
Tone Tank & Krayo together are Iller Than Theirs -- part of the ever growing Nuclear Family label who've been releasing amazing hip-hop records independently for several years now. Their self titled debut is a reaction to all things bloated, phony, boring, corporate, fancy, fashioned, dead, and robotic. Clear the airwaves for the duo as they swing by for some doughnuts and chattin'....

Thursday, September 27th, 2007, 3pm - 6pm

Expect exclusive international dubplates & their signature blend of Manhattan bass weight.

Circle
Tuesday, September 25th, 2007, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

New Wave of Finnish Heavy Metal in the house! That's the self-appointed phrase for the one and only Circle, making their return trip to Brian's show today! Of course, the thing with these Finns is: while they have been kicking out some seriously blistering rock as of late, they can also at the flip of a switch immerse listeners into deep, introspective Kraut-informed psychedelia, icy soundscapes punctuated by minimal piano, or anything else they might be feeling at the time. Their last visit featured some amazing extended group improvisations and resulted in one of their best live LPs, "Arkades". We can't wait to hear what Finland's finest will dish out today. (Circle also performs live at the Knitting Factory in NYC on September 22nd).


Purple Knif
Tuesday, September 25th, 2007, Noon - 3pm
