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).

Tuesday, September 11th, 2007, 3pm - 6pm

Today it's three hours of New Zealand sounds, thanks to a collection of records owned by the fella who's imported more than a few of that country's stellar lights (Dead C, Alastair Galbraith, Pin Group included) into our consciousness via his Philadelphia-based Siltbreeze label. Today's show will be mostly bypassing the more familiar Flying Nun path in favor of lesser known terrain that leads through labels such as Onset/Offset, obscure one-offs such as the Portage & Nux Vomica as well as a smattering of lathe cuts. As an added bonus, Hamish Kilgour from the Clean/Mad Scene/Bailter Space/Great Unwashed fame will be visiting to tell some war stories of being smack dab in the middle of New Zealand punk/post-punk! Todays progam is sure to include all that is Clean & unclean. Tune in!

Based in Mexico, Chejere mixes traditional Son Jarocho - the traditional style from Veracruz that most famously gave us La Bamba - with Latin rhythms and other contemporary elements.

One of the most charistmatic Latin American singers around, Lucia Pulido is known in New York for her brilliant interpretations of the traditional and popular vocal styles of Colombia.

Jose Conde y Ola Fresca are a wildly eclectic Cuban-rooted band, incorporating genres like son, changui, songo-funk, mambo, and timba as well as rock and soul in their sound.

Barbes is located at 376 9th St, Park Slope, Brooklyn. Their website is here.

on The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T

Haunted George is a one-man band featuring Steve Pallow, formerly of garage punk kingpin acts like the Necessary Evils and the Beguiled. In the live setting, Steve is joined by Jimmy Hole from the Screws, and together they make completely sick, lo-fi, blues-tinged, fuzzed out country rock evoking the nightmares of a child grown up in this ugly Now. Think Hasil Adkins meets Michael Yonkers or Johnny Cash performing at Abu Ghraib instead of Folsom Prison. Madman Blues for these troubled times.

And based on the last two amazing WFMU sessions where they sounded like two distinctly different units, we can't help but wonder what they'll be up to this time.

The tunes on "Ex Tempore," the newest album from folk-ster Johnny Irion, spilled out of him in a burst of creativity last summer in rural Massachusetts. An equal burst of recording energy brought out this collection of piano balladry, Americana, chamber pop and folk-style fingerpicking, with the occasional blast of skronky rock to clear the air. Johnny's carrying on in the Guthrie family's great sense of balladry (he's married to Arlo's daughter Sarah Lee), and he brings it all to the WFMU studios with guitar in hand.

If you're in a touring rock band and you insist on smoking weed - never do it while the band's tour bus is parked and don't smoke up in front of the bus, but rather, when it's moving and down the back and with the window wide open. This is just one of the many tidbits of helpful advice offered to touring musicians in the informative and illustrated new book Tour Smart by Martin Atkins. And as a drummer as well as an author, Atkins should know. He's been a member of such bands as Public Image Limited, Ministry, Killing Joke, and PIgface and has, as they say, seen it all.

To Dave the Spazz, Elvis is the guy who dressed up his pet monkey as a chauffeur, sat him down behind the wheel of his Cadillac while him and his pals steered the car from the backseat and drove around downtown Memphis flipping out the locals just for kicks.

His fine solo debut CD "Rhythm Was Born" was released in 2006. Donne's music is driven by his roots in Madagascar but plays on other influences as well from aboriginal Canadian, to rock and soul.
