DJ Rupture's new show on WFMU kicks off with a live set by Manhattan's Drop The Lime.

Black Mayonnaise
Tuesday, June 5th, 2007, 3pm - 6pm
on
Brian Turner's show
For 16 years Black Mayonnaise, the alter-ego of one Mike Duncan, has combined the sounds of old-school Godflesh, old-school Carcass, Big Black, drone/doom/sludge, and synthesizer experimentation to accidentally create a crude, insane, lurching homunculus under the comfort of relative obscurity. He's finally crawling out from underneath to do some live shows; May 26th performing at the Water Street Lounge in Brooklyn, as well as gunking up the WFMU studios today.


Glenn Jones AND the Finches
Monday, June 4th, 2007, 3pm - 6pm
on
Irene Trudel's show
Glenn Jones is a founding member of Boston-based Cul de Sac, and a longtime devotee and friend of the late John Fahey. Lately Glenn has been striking out on his own, releasing two gorgeous fingerstyle guitar albums on the Strange Attractors label. His latest, "...Against Which the Sea Continually Beats," conjures images of childhood and the lovely Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts, where the album was partially recorded.

Then, The Finches alight in the studio, captured on tour last March. The duo of Carolyn Pennypacker Riggs and Aaron Morgan live on opposite sides of the San Francisco Bay, brought together by their love of music. In January, the Finches released their debut album, "Human Like a House," which is both effortlessly charming and quirkily graceful.

Reginald C. Dennis was the music editor for The Source Magazine when it was truly considered the bible of Hip-Hop. He was there when you didn't need to be a multi-platinum rapper to get coverage.

Listen up as Reginald plays some of his favorite records and speaks his mind.

Scott Walker Documentarian Steven Kijak
Tuesday, May 29th, 2007, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

Steven Kijak's new film 30th Century Man chronicles the life and times of Scott Walker, one of popular music's true enigmas. Starting out as a Sunset Strip bassist, Walker ascended to hysteria-inducing megastardom in the late 1960's as an American transplant in Britain with the Walker Brothers. He soon turned his back on it all, and spent the next thirty years evolving into one of the most challenging and unique artists ever, inspiring countless modern pop and experimental musicians. He's continued to reinvent his own approach to record making, taking 1995's Tilt, and it's follow up 11 years later, the Drift, into sonic realms completely uncharted by anyone. Kijak's film premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival this month, and he'll be giving us a behind the scenes lowdown today with Brian.


Arborea AND Noa Bell
Monday, May 28th, 2007, 3pm - 6pm
on
Irene Trudel's show
Phil McMullen, owner of Terrascope U.K., describes Arborea like this: "Take a handful of politically sharp lyrics, hone them on a pedal-driven sharpening block in the lea of the old tumbledown barn until the point shines through, set them to melodies so intimate they sound like firelight whispers and moody, atmospheric instrumentation that soothes like a bubblebath and the result is Arborea ." The duo, featuring Buck and Shanti, hails from Lewiston, Maine and make their music overlooking Shagg Pond. Since we can't take the whole radio audience up there, Arborea brings their guitars, banjos and lovely voices to WFMU for an amazing recreation of their musicspace.

Following that, Israeli songbird Noa Bell drops by to play a set. Noa describes herself this way: "Her heart is full and hollow, like a cactus tree." She's fresh from a few sessions with Espers' Greg Weeks and brings her lovely voice to WFMU's love room.


Michael Rodgers
Sunday, May 27th, 2007, 3am - 6am
on Evan Muse

Michael Rodgers is a London-based musician and co-runner of the TwoThousandAnd label. He has toured Europe, New England, Japan, and Australia, and performed with a diverse range of improvising musicians such as AMM percussionist Eddie Prevost, double-bassist Margarida Garcia, Aussie laptop + field recording star Joel Stern, New York's own electronic experimentalist Barry Weisblat, and London's finest avant-turntablist Paul Hood.

Last year Michael dismantled his electronics gear, and hasn't properly gotten around to getting it back together. Instead he played more live guitar and spent time editing a massive backlog of electronic recordings involving radio, synth, guitar pedals, and field recordings. On this visit to WFMU, he'll perform a solo improvised guitar set and air some unreleased material from his electronics project entitled We're Breaking Up.


Guest DJ Roberto Rodriguez
Saturday, May 26th, 2007, 6pm - 9pm
on Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg

The Cuban-born percussionist drops by to share some of his music and his musical influences. Rodriguez played in his father's band as well as with the legendary Israel "Cachao" Lopez during his formative years in Miami. More recently, he's released several beautiful ensemble CDs of Cuban-Jewish music -- not really a genre, but more his own imagined hybrid -- on John Zorn's Tzadik label. Two recent collaborative projects with Irving Fields (of Bagels and Bongos fame) and Maurice el Medioni, the brilliant Judeo-Algerian pianist, have extended his Jewish music explorations. Rodriguez has also played with folks like Marc Ribot's Cubanos Postizos, avant-percussionist Susie Ibarra, and Joe Jackson.

on The Evan "Funk" Davies Show

Die! Die! Die! (the exclamation points are silent, except when they're playing) recently took a break from their opening slot on the Wolfmother tour to stop by WFMU. Coming from Dunedin, New Zealand, it's no surprise (and may even be mandatory) that they list The Clean first among their influences on their Myspace page. They recorded their first album with Steve Albini, but it's the early Factory Records bass sound that might grab your attention first, along with the shredding guitar, propulsive drumming and piercing vocals. Check! Them! Out!

Today, Ruins drummer Tatsuya Yoshida is coming in with his big band Koenjihyakkei (aka Hundred Lights of Koenji) and blowing the roof off even more! Heavy, ubercomplex rhythms, operatic male and female vocalists wailing in some made-up language, piano, reeds, epic jam-packed compositions with insane hairpin curve changes. They'll be taking their technical prowess into some of the most extreme terrain you've ever heard. Do not miss! They'll also be playing live on May 14th at the Knitting Factory!

on Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg

Gifted singer Angelique Kidjo has always worked hybrid angles, mixing elements of her native Beninese music and tradition with soul, rock, Caribbean and other global influences. Her new release Djin Djin is really two projects in one: Half of the CD is a series of mainstream-audience-seeking rock and pop collaborations with celebs like Peter Gabriel and Joss Stone. But the remaining tracks comprise her most stylistically African block of music in many years. Gearing up for her May 16 record release gig at B B King Blues club, Angelique talks about the new album, her background in a performing family in Benin, her work for international relief organizations and lots more.

Joe Boyd is especially notable for his role in the British folk-rock scene of the late sixties, but his career began road-managing blues, soul, and jazz tours; he booked the Pink Floyd as house band at his UFO club in London, stage-managed the Newport Folk Festival when Dylan plugged in, and later in his career ran the esteemed roots and world music label Hannibal Records.

Joe will discuss why he decided to be a producer instead of a musician, why he chose England over the US, the dawn of the British folk-rock scene with Fairport Convention and the Incredible String Band, connections between his early career and his later adventures producing world music for his own Hannibal, and lots more.

Jenny Toomey from Rock the Net
Friday, April 20th, 2007, 3pm - 6pm
on Put The Needle On The Record with Billy Jam

For the past decade independent musicians and record labels have thrived online, thanks to the Internet providing an unprecedented type of open access to fans and artists alike. However all that may soon come to a screeching halt because a handful of large telecommunications companies want to act as Internet traffic cops by charging web sites for better download speeds. If this happens it will result in a type of Internet payola, having a detrimental effect on independent artists and labels - both economically and creatively. The organization Rock The Net is leading the fight to protect freedom and innovation on the Internet. Jenny Toomey from Rock The Net will talk with Billy Jam to discuss all of these issues and more.

Drawing from both the wierder elements of early 80's Hardcore like the Meat Puppets or Deep Wound, and the 'Power Violence' sounds of Infest and Crossed Out, Boston's Mind Eraser have caused quite a stir in their few years of existence. When they drop by the FMU studios to deliver this set to old man Rettman, expect nothing more than confusing brutality and a soiled diaper or two.

An hour long mash-up of dialogue, music, and sound-effects from classic Hal Roach era Laurel & Hardy films.

A total legend in experimental sound, text, and visual art, Z'EV has been exploring 'spacial poetics' while creative percussive mayhem since the 1970's.

Hang the Lights
Monday, April 16th, 2007, 3pm - 6pm

Josh talks with Dan about made-up languages, an organ that plays scents, and the Kircherian mindset. You can also check kirchersociety.org for great stuff like clips of William Shatner starring in an Esperanto horror movie.

Saturday, April 14th, 2007, 6pm - 9pm
on Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg

Rollicking downtown / Brooklyn supergroup Slavic Soul Party put their own high-energy horn-centered spin on Balkan music - mixing in other multi-culti brass band influences like Mexican banda as well as jazz and soul and a whole lot more. Tonight they'll be celebrating the release of their latest superhot cd, Teknochek Collision.

Edmar Castaneda is a virtuoisic young harpist and composer who has performed with Lila Downs, Yerba Buena, Marta Topferova and many others, as well as leading his own group. Edmar deftly blends traditional elements from his native Colombia with jazz and other influences using a technique he developed: playing bass lines with his left hand, while the right hand plays melody. His debut CD is called "Cuarto de Colores." Barbes is located at 376 9th St. in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Come down and be a part of the broadcast magic!

The Caution Curves
Friday, April 13th, 2007, 2am - 6am
on Jason Elbogen's show

Washington DC's-based three piece The Caution Curves weave strangled vocals, electronic blippery, and found sounds into a compelling stew that ends up sounding like The Ex (from the "Joggers and Smoggers" era) fronted by Joan La Barbara. Some of their songs are driven by propulsive drumming, while others leave the noises and vocals to stand on their own. Listen as they celebrate the release of their new full-length album "A Little Hungry".

White Hills
Tuesday, April 10th, 2007, 11pm - 2am
on The Evan "Funk" Davies Show

The Brooklyn-based trio White Hills has earned attention and acclaim from tastemakers ranging from Julian Cope to the staff at Aquarius Records, and now it's your turn! Their latest release, "Glitter Glamour Atrocity" is an amazing amalgamation of guitar-crazed space rock, krautrock, psych, and even a little fuzz thrown in for good measure. They've drawn apt comparisons to Hawkwind, Joy Division, Neu!, and Echo and the Bunnymen, among others. Once you hear them live you'll be making your own comparisons. Don't miss it!!
