Brian Turner's show
Purveyors of total black noise-trance destruction, the trio of Dominick Fernow (aka Prurient), Richard Dunn (FFH), and Joe Potts (Drums Of Myrrh) come down to Jersey City to raise up a hate-fueled racket pretty unlike your average guitar/drums/electronics format. Razor guitar through thick sheets of metallic gauze, tortured vocals, and high entertainment value all around.


El Da Sensei
Monday, August 21st, 2006, 11pm - 2am
on
Coffee Break For Heroes & Villains with Noah

Ergo Phizmiz
Monday, August 21st, 2006, 7pm - 8pm
on Do or DIY with People Like Us

Ergo Phizmiz's music jumps freely between pop, pranksterism, mutant-electro, and just about everything inbetween. Described by The Wire magazine as a "one man movement", and by BBC Radio 3 as "one of the most inventive composers around...", Ergo has developed a reputation as one of the most genuinely innovative composers working today. He's created over 300 hours of audio and video, including projects for the Tate Modern, the Royal Festival Hall, the Dutch Academy of Fine Art, Resonance FM, Ubuweb and BBC Radio 3. Tune in to hear Vicki Bennett chat with him about his many projects, and to spin some of his favorite musical selections.

Fern Knight
Monday, August 21st, 2006, 3pm - 6pm
on Irene Trudel's show

This Philadelphia, PA ensemble with an ever-changing lineup is fronted by guitarist/cellist and singer Margaret Wienk, who creates delicate, organic, acoustic songs orchestrated by layers of accordion/harmonium/electronics drones, pysch-tinged strings, canonic vocals, harp, bells, and percussion and singing saw. At the heart of the songs is Margie's strong voice, cello, and guitar, leading the tunes with feeling and subtlety. While in the tradition of electric-trad legends such as Pentangle and Trees, Fern Knight's music rings of the intensely personal and is delivered with crystal clarity. Michael Patrick Brady of Brainwashed says of the ensemble, "Fern Knight draws a slow story, one that makes for an excellent tale that explores those winding forest paths and the things that lie hidden between the lines." The set will begin at 4 PM.


Nomo
Saturday, August 19th, 2006, 6pm - 8pm
on Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg

In addition to your usual percussion, guitars, keyboards, horns, etc., the band features homemade instruments created by bandleader Elliot Bergman with fellow Michigander Warren Defever. Defever's band His Name is Alive shares several members with Nomo, and he produced the band's scorching new CD "New Tones" (on Ubiquity). Nomo will hit us with live versions from this CD as well as their self-titled 2004 debut disc on Fred Thomas's Ypsilanti Records.

on Pseu's Thing With A Hook

Melbourne Australia's The Wellingtons stop by Pseu's Thing With A Hook fresh from their appearance at The International Pop Overthrow Festival to share their shiny, happy, hook-filled pop with us! This boy-girl quartet has been garnering raves like "If the Beatles circa help and the Shangri-Las had somehow formed a super-group, this is what they'd sound like."


"Supa Rockin" Mr. Magic's Rap Attack
Friday, August 18th, 2006, 6pm - 7pm
on
Aircheck
Starting in 1979, in post-disco New York City, the Rap Attack was the the first blast of rap radio to ever hit the dial. Paying for his own time-slot to broadcast from WHBI's basement studio on Riverside Drive before moving to WBLS in 1982, Mr. Magic blew up the careers of countless MCs worth their weight in 10K gold chains: Kurtis Blow, Whodini, Biz Markie, Big Daddy Kane, Starski, Afrika Bambaataa, Run DMC, and LL Cool J to name a few. With the Juice Crew in the house and Marley Marl in his "mixing gloves" ready to "wax, buff, and simonize," the Rap Attack was also a blistering battlefield for many rap rivalries: the infamous "bridge wars" between KRS-One and MC Shan, the Real Roxanne vs. Roxanne Shante, Grandmaster Flash vs. Melle Mel, and Kiss FM vs. WBLS ("I'll smack that lipstick off your radio!"). Listen up fly guys and fly girls!


Archie Bell
Thursday, August 17th, 2006, 8pm - 11pm
on
Music To Spazz By with Dave the Spazz
There's gonna be a showdown when the inimitable Archie Bell from Archie Bell & the Drells swings by Music To Spazz By! Archie scored a top R&B and Pop hit in the summer of '68 with the dance sensation "Tighten Up" and he's been tightening it up ever since!

Spooky (aka Paul Miller) is appearing this Sunday in Central Park where he will be presenting a free Summerstage show with Talvin Sing, Guru of Gangstarr, Prefuse 73, and others.


Listener Cheese Snob Wendy Talks With You on "Radio: Why Bother?"
Saturday, August 12th, 2006, 9am - 10am
on
The Listener Hour
Premise: Television. The internet. iPods. Have any of these things been successful at killing radio? It doesn't seem that way. Why not? Why should anyone care about who or what's on the radio? There are no pictures and you can't tell it what to do. So why bother? CheeseSnob Wendy will offer some of her opinions on why radio won't die (is it just inertia?) and how a childhood spent flipping the dial made her the so-called adult she is today. There will also be some musical recordings offered for your enjoyment. Listeners are wholeheartedly encouraged to call and chime in on their memorable radio experiences, and why, in 2006, they still bother to tune in.


Sanctified Gospel Visionaries
Friday, August 11th, 2006, 6pm - 7pm
on
Aircheck
Many small, religious AM radio stations in the South offer anyone with a few dollars an opportunity to be on the airwaves through weekly pay-as-you-go time slots. Over the years, not only have legitimate preachers, churches, and singing groups taken advantage of these slots, but self-appointed, touched-by-the-hand-of-God sanctified visionaries and spritualist/hoodoo root workers have appeared from time to time over the airwaves. Aircheck brings you two AM radio broadcast gospel visionaries: The Apostle James Moses White from WLGO-AM and Deacon Jesse McWhorter on WMGY-AM, as well as a broadcast excerpt from one hoodoo root workin' radio genius, the Reverend Izear recorded off of WZTN-AM.


Candi Staton
Friday, August 11th, 2006, Noon - 3pm
on Monica's show

First Lady of Southern Soul, gospel goddess, and disco legend Candi Staton stops by Monica's show this Friday to discuss her astounding multi-genre career and her storied survival of the abusive marriages and alcoholism that came with it. Her raw, ravaged, and raspy voice has traveled many miles and musical paths - from her rural roots traveling with Mahalia Jackson and the Soul Stirrers in the 50s, to her transformation of country classics to soul standards at Muscle Shoals in the late 60s/early 70s, to her disco anthems in the late 70s, and her triumphant return to both gospel and, more recently, secular music.

Mayo Thompson
Saturday, August 5th, 2006, 10pm - Midnight

Bob Lassiter (Part 2 of 2)
Friday, August 4th, 2006, 6pm - 7pm
on
Aircheck
More from the feisty Floridian radio enigma, previously unaired on Aircheck. Compared to the lock-step right wing bozos that dominate talk radio today, Lassiter's mischievous & misathropic style is practically high art. As a talk host, Lassiter specialized in pissing off the elderly, Christians, and other intellectually-challenged listeners.


Terror Level Red
Thursday, August 3rd, 2006, 11pm - 2am
on
Pat Duncan's show
Terror Level Red is an NYC band who plays dark hardcore influenced by bands like Tragedy, Catharsis, and His Hero Is Gone. Their catchy guitar riffs and solos are topped by the powerful combo of screechy high end vocals and roaring low end vocals.

Pumice
Tuesday, August 1st, 2006, 11pm - 2am
on Bill Zurat's show

New Zealand's Pumice, aka Stephan Neville, stops by the WFMU studios for an inspired solo set. Imagine a DIY singer-songwriter approach with strong melodies and just a touch of noise for good measure. This is Pumice's first tour through the United States featuring tape collages and a modified child's acoustic guitar that Stefan somehow coaxes warm and expressive tones from. It's certainly a performance not be missed.


"Miscellaneous Articles and Updates"

on
Dave Emory's show
Part #562 in Dave Emory's "For the Record" series


Tommy Keene
Tuesday, August 1st, 2006, Noon - 3pm
on Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock

To call Tommy Keene a power-pop artist is just scratching the surface. Trouser Press accurately describes him as a versatile guitarist, gifted songwriter, and appealing singer. Keene has done stints on the road backing Paul Westerberg, Robert Pollard, and Velvet Crush and pushes his own solo career into its 25th year with his latest, "Crashing the Ether" -- probably his most adventurous album to date. Tune in today for a live performance and interview.

After that, stay tuned for Summer book pics with Carol Lipnik.


Lisa Germano
Monday, July 31st, 2006, 3pm - 6pm
on Irene Trudel's show

Seductive, dark, and truly magical, Lisa Germano has just released a new disc called "In the Maybe World" on Michael Gira's Young God label. Always stark and direct, Germano's songs are intensely beautiful with just a hint of black humor. Lisa has been touring with the equally beautiful guitarist and producer Michael Brook, and she plays on his new album, "RockPaperScissors,"as well. Lisa Germano dropped by mid-tour to chat and play a few songs for us on the piano.


Dominick Fernow
Saturday, July 29th, 2006, 10pm - Midnight
on
Acapulco Dance Party with Acapulco Rodriguez
Fernow will perform a live, one-man set as Prurient, using his mangled vocal cords, a handful of effects pedals, and a monlithic stack of amplifiers to produce a piercing, ear-splitting sound that's both torturous and liberating. Reference points? Think Whitehouse or Masonna, only... more, and frankly, better. Later, Fernow will discuss the Hospital Productions imprint and its new NYC retail outlet, and select some records which you might enjoy (no promises). Break out the headphones for this one! (Click here (Streaming Real Audio) for a sample of what to expect.)


TWO BANDS: Angry Angles & the Cynics
Saturday, July 29th, 2006, 3pm - 6pm

Legendary garage rockers The Cynics have been around since 1983 specializing in fuzzed, ultra-distorted guitar, screaming, moaning vocals, with a straight-ahead no frills rhythm section. The influences are 60s Punk, R&B, and other loud, frantic trash like the Seeds, The Sonics, Moving Sidewalks, and the Count Five! Their latest full-length is out now on the Get Hip label.

on
Kenny G's Hour of Pain
Kenny G welcomes Nick the Bard to perform an a capella version of Joni Mitchell's 1974 classic rock record "Court and Spark", beginning at 5 PM. You might remember Nick's last appearance on Intelligent Design was a full-length rendition of Tull's "Thick as a Brick." This promises to be much more, urm... interesting... as Nick dons Joni's falsetto and rips through classics like "Midnight at the Oasis" and "Free Man in Paris." Ouch.


"Economics 9-11 pt 2"
Tuesday, July 25th, 2006, 6pm - 7pm
on
Dave Emory's show
Part #561 in Dave Emory's "For the Record" series.


Citay
Tuesday, July 25th, 2006, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

Citay comes our way from San Francisco, focusing on baroque, lilting and sometimes bombastic acoustic-based music that definitely harks back to Black Sabbath circa Volume 4, Led Zeppelin, Roy Harper, early Heart, and early Queen among other influences. Their self-titled release on the Important label displayed brilliantly how a band can evoke classic 70's rock without succumbing to ironic posturing, combining 12-string, mandolin, organ, and occassional Thin Lizzy-inspired electric leads into a gorgeous, and surprisingly original concoction.


Donny Miller
Monday, July 24th, 2006, 11pm - 2am
on Coffee Break For Heroes & Villains with Noah

Graphic designer Donny Miller is celebrating his new book "Beautiful People with Beautiful Feelings" as well as celebrating his first time on WFMU. Tune in as Donny spins some of his favorite old school hip-hop cuts as well as a nice serving of electro, funk, and soul.


Eric Carbonara PLUS Nick Castro with Wendy Watson
Monday, July 24th, 2006, 3pm - 6pm
on Irene Trudel's show

Frequently using a rotating cast of monikers and aliases, Philly-based Eric Carbonara is a guitarist, composer, audio engineer, and producer whose career spans over a decade of collaborations and solo work. Eric is equally at home on the classical guitar as he is deriving drones from his electric. As Mr.Carbonara describes it, he "plays pidgin music, a language that is in between other languages -- borrowing elements from its surroundings. It may be a language that only Eric speaks, but he speaks it well. A performance of his work may entail a solo Andalusian influenced guitar, electric guitar/drum duets, delay saturated atonal wine glass music, electro-acoustic synthesized improvisation and/or any combination of the above." Eric brought out his Classical guitar recently to record a inspired set for WFMU.

Later on, Nick Castro and Wendy Watson will perform a fine set of ethereal folk. This California duo are gracefully immersed in 60's/70's British Isles acid balladry, traditional Middle-Eastern music, and heady, pan-cultural communal jams. Nick's just put out his third disc as Nick Castro and The Young Elders, released on Portland's Strange Attractors label.


Rirkrit Tiravanija on Ramakien: A Rak Opera
Saturday, July 22nd, 2006, 6pm - 8pm

It will feature contemporary Thai filmmakers, visual artists, rock and pop stars, electronica DJs, and other assorted Bangkok scenesters. And, well, Arto Lindsay.

The artistic director of the show is internationally acclaimed conceptual artist Rirkrit Tiravanija, who was recently awarded the Guggenheim Museum's Hugo Boss prize for extraordinarily talented artists. He'll join Rob to talk about the Ramakien, preview some of the music, and explore contemporary Thai music, art, and culture.

Family Underground
Monday, July 17th, 2006, 3pm - 6pm
on
Irene Trudel's show
Denmark's Family Underground has been spewing out some of the best dark, dense, and cinematic drones for years, most through CD-R releases. Their music's also been described as "...a wild blend of earthquake drones and microphone whispers." Family Underground descend on WFMU's studio B for a live performance this afternoon.


Ruthann Friedman
Monday, July 17th, 2006, 6am - 9am

Watersports
Saturday, July 15th, 2006, 10pm - Midnight
on Acapulco Dance Party with Acapulco Rodriguez

Brooklyn's homeopathic electroacoustic duo Watersports drops by for a live, in-studio bodywork session with Acapulco Rodriguez. Fresh off a successful tour of the "dirty south" with Iovae, Lea Cho and Russ Waterhouse will perform a cleansing set of meditative pieces for synth, electronics, and percussion. Then, the pair will join Acapulco Rodriguez in the "control" room for a lively discussion of such topics as their forthcoming LPs, the health benefits of "aquatic massage," and then share some of their favorite selections from the Wyndham Hill and ECM catalogs. All kidding aside, their new CD-R on Breaking World Records is a dream. These two produce some of the most exquisite sounds ever to come outta the NYC "noise" underground, and only a damn jackass would miss this set.


The Prototypes
Saturday, July 15th, 2006, 3pm - 6pm
on The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T

The Prototypes are a completely mesmerizing, in command, pop- punk-wave band who call to mind Blondie and the Nina Hagen Band. The Prototypes just completed their amazing American tour and while here they paid a visit to Terre's show. They'll be playing songs from their new American self-titled debut on Minty Fresh Records , which collects their two French LPs.

Dave Rabbit / Radio First Termer
Friday, July 14th, 2006, 6pm - 7pm
on Aircheck

Radio First Termer was a pirate station that operated for 21 days in 1971, offering a somewhat irreverent alternative to regular broadcasts to G.I.'s during the Vietnam War. How irreverent? Well, for starters, it broadcast out of a Saigon brothel. Today we'll be presenting an hour of what can be considered airable from the tapes that have surfaced from these three weeks, showcasing DJ Dave Rabbit. Not aware of his cult status until just months ago, Dave recently told his story for the DVD release of "Sir! No Sir!", a David Zieger film about the G.I. Anti-Vietnam War movement and Vietnam Counterculture.


Web-only show with the Country Teasers
Thursday, July 13th, 2006, 6am - 9am
on
Brian Turner's show
A special encore presentation of the live session from Brian's June 27th afternoon show, but this time totally unexpurgated for the web! London's masters of satirical, falling-apart misanthropy have arrived in Jersey City on the heels of their latest In the Red label release "The Empire Strikes Back." Live, their deconstructive take on experimental rock and American roots music incorporates enough observations on its misogyny, racism, and topical confusion to part their crowds like Moses. They've picked on the human race by covering both the Brainbombs and Randy Newman's "Short People", hell, they've even picked on each other in their songs. Pitchfork gave one of their records a 3.2 out of 10 despite the fact these guys are heavily influenced by the Fall. It's gonna be a great session.

GO!
Thursday, July 6th, 2006, 11pm - 2am
on Pat Duncan's show

GO! was a New York City Hardcore band that was always, shall we say, a little different. Active from 1989-1991, it focused not only on music but lyrics dealing with issues like sexism, racism, cultural relativism, and support for gay and lesbian rights. Essentially, GO! was pro the good stuff and anti the bad stuff. They made really good music and they were sarcastic enough that it all kind of worked. GO! always lived the DIY ethic, put out a bunch of records, toured extensively, and have recently reunited to play some shows and record some new music. You can get tons of GO! info and download MP3s in this post on WFMU's blog.

Friday, June 30th, 2006, 6pm - 7pm
on
Aircheck
Who is Ken Sims? We'd love to know. What we do know is that in the 1980's he obsessively recorded his local rock radio station onto a cassette every time he won tickets to a concert, or prank-called its hapless DJs. Also today: Jean Shepherd's "Caterpiller In Salad" from 1969.

Country Teasers
Tuesday, June 27th, 2006, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

London's masters of satirical, falling-apart misanthropy have arrived in Jersey City on the heels of their latest In the Red label release "The Empire Strikes Back." Live, their deconstructive take on experimental rock and American roots music incorporates enough observations on its misogyny, racism, and topical confusion to part their crowds like Moses. They've picked on the human race by covering both the Brainbombs and Randy Newman's "Short People", hell, they've even picked on each other in their songs. Pitchfork even gave one of their records a 3.2 out of 10 despite the fact these guys are heavily influenced by the Fall. It's gonna be a great afternoon. And as a bonus treat, the session will air again but this time totally unexpurgated for a web-only show Brian will do Thursday, July 13th from 6-9am.
