Phuj Phactory with Ergo Phizmiz
Ergo Phizmiz has raided his collection of junkshop Yuletide vinyl slabs to produce a full hour of seasonal mayhem and mash-up. Prepare yourself for eskimoes roasting on an open fire, Bing Crosby feeling strangers he meets, Scrooge jamming with James Brown, Led Zeppelin playing along with European carols, old radio productions of Charles Dickens mashed into Samuel Beckett-ish repetitions, Wham! mixed with Emerson, Lake & Palmer, plus lashings of mulled wine, Tijuana Brass, and goodness knows what else. A special, sickly sweet box of Christmas chocolates.

Or something like that.

Performance artist/jazz chanteuse Nora York is notable for her unusual interpretations of popular song.

Nora joins Irene for a chat about her current projects and a live performance with her trio.

From San Francisco comes this female-fronted, raw garage punk band! These gals play your favorite 60s garage and 70s punk, calling to mind bands like the Sonics, Pleasure Seekers, Gories, Pandoras, the Bags, or the Ronettes (if they'd listened to a bunch of "Killed by Death" and "Back from the Grave" comps rather than Phil Spector!) They'll be playing tunes from their new album on Swami Records, which is called "There's Nothing I'd Like More than to See You Dead."

Max Brennan / Wight Light Orchestra
Wednesday, December 13th, 2006, 7pm - 8pm
on Phuj Phactory with Ergo Phizmiz

A visit to the Phuj Phactory from "spiritual disco technician" Max Brennan, creator of the acclaimed "Alien to Whom" and "Maxwell House" series. The Wight Light Orchestra is the latest adventure from prolific producer Max. After a break from the business and a lot of time spent in the Himalayas on a cosmic quest of meditation and presence, Max has teamed up with fellow cosmic warriors Louis Soteriou and Jon Mcmullen. The project "Wight Light Orchestra" (named after the Isle of Wight, which means life, sprite, & enlightened spirit) aims to capture and transmit directly from the heart, pure presence. The project weaves mantras, Tibetan singing bowls, temple bells, classical guitar, and rhythmic dynamics with twisted time signatures and inspired lyrics not seen in Max's work until now. This project is forging ahead with the emphasis on presence, on being here and now and playing to the global -- if not universal -- presence and consciousness that's now growing in the boundaries of social awareness.


Jesus Christ Superstar
Wednesday, December 13th, 2006, 9am - Noon
on
Ken's show
Ken celebrates the birth of the baby Jesus by paying musical tribute to the death of the baby Jesus. Yes, Ken finally purges Andrew Lloyd Weber from his system by playing three hours of versions of Jesus Christ Superstar. So maybe it won't go to three hours. It will still be way too much Jesus-based bombast for that hour of the day. Included will be surf versions, moog versions, versions in Japanese, Russian, Swedish, and the best version ever - the Dutch one. Everything but the original soundtrack and the unmentionable film version.


APB
Tuesday, December 12th, 2006, 11pm - 2am
on The Evan "Funk" Davies Show

The Scottish band APB burst onto the post-punk scene back in 1981 with their classic single "(I'd Like To) Shoot You Down," which became an immediate club and college radio hit in New York City and around the country. They continued putting out underground dance hits through the 80s, recording at Arthur Baker and John Robie's Unique Studios, as well as right here in Jersey City. Evan "Funk" Davies was playing those early records 25 (gulp!) years ago, and he's excited to welcome APB to the WFMU studios for a great live set on Tuesday, December 12 at 11pm. Tune in to hear APB play live, and be sure to catch one of their area shows: Dec 9 at the Loop Lounge in Passaic; Dec 14 at Union Hall in Brooklyn; and Dec 15 at the Knitting Factory.


Clockcleaner

on
Brian Turner's show
Get your healthy dose of damaged psychedelic punk madness today: Clockcleaner are here to do just what their name says, evoking an evil crap-storm cloud of your fave sludge (early Butthole Surfers, Flipper, Drunks With Guns) with some lobe-tickle elements from other disparate sources (some claim to hear both Brainbombs AND Ratt riffs in there somewhere). What could be better to prep you for the holidays?

Started by Peter Case after the break up of the proto- new wave band The Nerves, Plimsouls were THE leading power-pop band in the 1980s.

The Plimsouls reunited and played some jaw-droppingly amazing, critically acclaimed gigs in the New York area last month.

Monday, November 13th, 2006, 3pm - 6pm

Irene Trudel's show
Starting things off on a beautiful, otherworldly note is David Hykes, founder of Harmonic Chant and the Harmonic Presence work, an Enlightenment-dedicated body of primordial wisdom practices, including the universal sacred music music called Harmonic Chant, as well as meditative awareness training and healing harmonization. David is a composer, singer, world and intraworld traveller in a stay-at-om universe, but is here for a special, intimate concert and kirtan with Krishna Das to benefit The Breathing Project on November 16th in NYC.

Then, led by erstwhile Firewater co-conspirator and international piano man Paul Wallfisch, Botanica makes punk rock chamber music for the 21st century. Bridging the gap between Secret Machines and The Dresden Dolls, Botanica produces gritty, epic, sexy music that is neither blind to politics nor ignorant of romance. Called the sonic equivalent of an Aki Kaurismaki film by Intro Magazine (Germany), Botanica's music was also recently described in the New Yorker as "...trafficking in sonic noir with an undercurrent of sinewy menace...sinister sophisticates providing the perfect soundtrack to the after-hours, urban experience."

Tom Brosseau
Friday, October 13th, 2006, 9am - Noon
on Give The Drummer Some with Doug Schulkind

The old-timey music of the '20s and '30s was actually a revival of the music of an era half a century before. Tom Brosseau, a 27-year-old North Dakota native, sings songs of lost love that shimmer like aural tintypes, harkening back to that earlier time. His guitar is lovely, a harmonica adds color, the pump organ is a masterful touch. But the ingredient in this mix that will flat out give you chills is Brosseau's voice, which sounds eerily like a high-lonesome reincarnation of Jeff Buckley--with faint echoes of Karen Dalton.
