Unleashed upon the public in the summer of 2005, The Hank Four is a San Francisco five-piece rock combo trafficking in a mix of dual-guitar histrionics, panic-skiffle drum beats, primitive craw-stick melodics, and straw-boss vocal gymnastics. Includes former members of Icky Boyfriends, The Roofies, Resineators, and The Leather Uppers. Likely to appeal to fans of Thomas Jefferson Slave Apartments, Flipper, and Country Teasers.


Greg Critser
Monday, December 5th, 2005, 6pm - 7pm

Bridget St. John & Rockdove
Monday, December 5th, 2005, 3pm - 6pm
on
Irene Trudel's show
Imagine hearing Nico's dark, smokey voice beautifully in tune and you'll touch the melodic tip of what's so gorgeous about british folkie Bridget St. John. Originally Bridget recorded for John Peel's short-lived Dandelion label, which promptly gave her the well-deserved label of "chanteuse." Critical acclaim did not equal commercial success, and St. John seemed to vanish, only to re-emerge in the NYC area with some live performances. Bridget plays later in the week at Tonic on a bill with the equally melodic Josephine Foster and guitarist Jon Rose, and she drops by WFMU for a rare live performance.

Then, Brooklyn-based Rockdove, an ensemble which hasn't been in existence long, but their debut performance silenced a rowdy local bar crowd with the quiet power of their music. The folks in Rockdove describe themselves this way: "Close your eyes, and take in the otherworldy sounds of Rockdove. You'll hear Patsy, and Loretta, and the Band, and Aretha and Tom Petty and Nick Drake too. But mostly you'll hear music sung with the soul of a gospel choir, because darlin', they BELIEVE in this music..." Former Goats-in-Trees mates Alice Bierhorst and John Mettem are joined by Sandy Bell and Laura Cromwell as Rockdove comes out to WFMU to play.


Townes Van Zandt Documentarian Margaret Brown
Monday, December 5th, 2005, Midnight - 3am

on
Bob Brainen's show
Bob Brainen welcomes Ken Emerson, author of the brand-new book, "Always Magic in the Air: The Bomp and Brilliance of the Brill Building Era," and previously of "Doo-Dah!: Stephen Foster and the Rise of American Popular Culture." We'll be discussing the seven songwriting teams Emerson chronicles: Lieber and Stoller, Pomus and Shuman, Bacharach and David, Sedaka and Greenfield, Goffin and King, Mann and Weill, and Barry and Greenwich. We'll also cover an assortment of other characters and publishing and record companies that helped the music from 1619 and 1650 Broadway flourish in the late 1950s and early 1960s. We'll be playing lots of music by these writers whose collective efforts helped create a soundtrack for several generations.

Also in the mix will be DJ Frampster with a hot fire mix of the UK's latest eski et al white labels you'll never hear again. Not to be missed!


Love Story in Blood Red
Saturday, December 3rd, 2005, 3pm - 6pm
on The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T

Love Story In Blood Red features ex-Means frontman Jason Frederick and they play amazingly dark yet melodic, pretty yet edgy, folkish rock. Calling to mind Jonathan Richman (pre-I'm A Little Dinosaur) or 'Village Green'/'Arthur'-era Kinks, Love In Blood Red is a perfect almagam of twisted pop and pretty yet disturbing folk. Their full length album is one of Terre's Faves for 2005!!!

Irwin welcomes historian David Leopold, author of a new book entitled "Irving Berlin's Show Business." It is arguably the most ambitious literary look at the legendary songwriter's career and achievements, containing a wealth of previously unpublished material. Berlin wrote for film, Broadway, and the pop charts; he composed ragtime, ballads, novelties, jazz, "God Bless America," "Puttin' on the Ritz," and "White Christmas." Leopold will air recordings of Berlin's earliest work, while discussing a man whose songs are so popular that they're as ubiquitous as water, and just as essential.

on
Brian Turner's show
Get down and greeezy with NYC's kings of choogle, together since 1997 but just getting around to releasing studio stuff this year. Their live shows have been sporadic for the fact that they only play gigs when specifically asked to, though recently they've frequently whipped local audiences into a frenzy with their heavy jams supporting assorted Dungen shows. Live, guitarists Paul Major and Jesper Eklow trade off invocations of Tony McPhee, Peter Green, Zoot Horn Rollo, Lobby Lloyd, and Ron Asheton, and if you don't know who some of those guys are, don't worry too much about it. Endless Boogie are here to deliver rock salvation.

on
The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T
This female-fronted postpunky-garage quartet from Nashville stops by the WFMU studios for a blistering live set that will call to mind Huggy Bear, Bikini Kill, early Sleater-Kinney, and even early Patti Smith.

West Oakland Funk/Soul/R&B retrospective with guest DJ Buck
Wednesday, November 16th, 2005, 2am - 6am
on
Put The Needle On The Record with Billy Jam
In the 1950's and 60's, West Oakland boasted more than 20 rhythm and blues clubs such as Slim Jenkins and Esther's Orbit Lounge -- which pumped out gritty live music every night of the week and fueled a whole cottage industry of black owned mom-and-pop record stores, plus countless East Bay record labels to support the thriving local doo-wop, RnB, soul, and emerging funk music scenes. But the music died - or rather was killed in the name of "urban development". The Cypress Freeway and the new overhead BART train (bay area transit system) were built right down the middle of what was once the main strip of the West Oakland clubland, effectively grinding things to a tragic halt. 60-year old Oakland music fan Buck was there back then and will share memories and vinyl from this rich era beginning at 3 AM. All recorded live at the laundromat!

African Sounds with Andy Moor of the Ex
Tuesday, November 15th, 2005, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

Besides playing guitar in Dutch avant-rock band the Ex, Andy Moor, like his fellow bandmates, is a rabid musicologist of hidden sounds from around the world, and together they have brought to the spotlight amazing artists like Tsehaytu Beraki and Konono No. 1 (the latter of which makes an American debut November 16th at Joe's Pub and the 17th at SOB's). Brian invited Andy some time ago to produce a program at home that highlights his favorite recordings, and today we will air his guided tour through Uganda, Malawi, Zambia, Zimbabwe and other African locales. We'll also be checking out some of the Ex's most recent NYC performance from their 2004 Knitting Factory show, which will be part of a forthcoming DVD documentary on the band directed by Jem Cohen. And of course we'll be playing some Konono No.1 music to celebrate their upcoming shows.

As the leader of the legendary White Heaven, singer-songwriter You Ishihara built an international cult following with his melancholic take on the West Coast psychedelic sound in the footsteps of Quicksilver Messenger Service. Although his new band The Stars sports a more punk edge, he returns to his early roots in this hushed, intimate performance, recorded at WFMU on the eve of the release of his new Stars album, "A Perfect Place to Hideaway".

TWO BANDS: Art Brut + The Demands
Saturday, November 12th, 2005, 3pm - 6pm
on The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T

Art Brut are British rockers who play smart-dumb, repetitive two-chord punk that is actually perfectly catchy pop! Last year their anthemic tribute to every talentless wonder who was proud to pick up a guitar, "Formed A Band," was the single of the year for NME, Pitchfork, and John Peel!

The Demands' stripped down sound blends old soul, greasy R&B, power pop, and punk rock. Combined with lead singer Jahna's sultry growling and steamy lyrics, their music has been called "sex-themed punk-soul" and 'a teenaged Etta James or Carla Thomas sitting in with their neighborhood garage group for an afternoon.'

Monday, November 7th, 2005, 11pm - 2am
on
Janitor From Mars with R. Lim
Although Yura Yura Teikoku have achieved mainstream popularity in Tokyo as one of its most dynamic rock bands, they have yet to make waves outside of their home country. This is all about to change on the heels of two rapturously received shows in New York to celebrate the distribution of their back catalog via New York's Mesh Key Records. Tune in to find out what makes their blend of psychedelic pop and early New York art-punk so appealing in this session, recorded exclusively for The Janitor From Mars radio program.

Jozef van Wissem & Sean Smith
Monday, November 7th, 2005, 3pm - 6pm
on Irene Trudel's show

On Jozef van Wissem's latest disc, "Objects in Mirror are closer than they appear," he continues his fascination with musical palindromes. Jozef's also incorporated a fair amount of taped airfield recordings and electronics into his latest project. The Netherlands-based master-lutist is dropping by WFMU to perform on a trip to the New York area. Also on the show, rescheduled from last week, the mysterious and amazing fingerstyle guitarist, Sean Smith, whose compositions make more than a passing nod to greats like John Fahey and Robbie Basho. By way of introduction, "Sean Smith was born on a grey day in Pacific Grove, California in 1981 and has yet to emerge from the fog. He currently lives all alone in a rambling Victorian house on the coast of California overlooking the Pacific ocean. The high ceilings and hardwood floors of this century old house make for great opportunities in recording his solo guitar explorations, but the dining room in which he sleeps is so cold at night it's like wearing ice ear muffs." Sean's surroundings make for great musical inspirations, and you can hear the result when he plays live.

Magik Markers
Tuesday, November 1st, 2005, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

With broad strokes of No Wave and classic hardcore sensibilities, the Magik Markers have often been saddled with comparsions to Teenage Jesus and especially Red Transistor, though in their five year wake of trashed drumkits and broken guitars they've done equal amounts of introspective sound explorations as well. Live, Pete Nolan (drums), Leah Quimby (guitar) and Elisa Ambroglio (guitar, vocal) totally spraypaint the walls; if you are missing the adrenaline-to-the-heart shock of live Harry Pussy, Minor Threat and primo Black Flag (Elisa is way more Keith Morris than Lydia Lunch), or worship the meltdown guitar rumbling and off-balance wooziness of the Dead C circa "Harsh 70's Reality" this may very well be your new fave action trio. Video clips on the playlist page to follow!


The Night Terrors

on
Pat Duncan's show
Formed in 2001 by guitarist / vocalist Hope Diamond and bassist / vocalist Liz Lixx, Thee Minks burst out of the garage and onto the stage, steaming up bar windows up and down the East Coast with their infectious Ronettes-meets-the-Ramones-by-way-of-Radio-Birdman stomp. After solidifying their line-up with the addition of drum whore extraordinaire The Playthang, the band has played with The Woggles, The Downbeat 5, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, the Little Killers, Nikki and The Corvettes, and Shonen Knife. This summer they headed back into the studio to add another notch to their rock and roll bedpost, resulting in the 14 tough and sexy bittersweet rock and roll nuggets that make up their first full length CD.

Monday, October 24th, 2005, 3pm - 6pm
on Irene Trudel's show

Led by erstwhile Firewater co-conspirator and international piano man Paul Wallfisch, Botanica is a band named for those mysterious stores stocking spells, potions, and artifacts of ritual. This Brooklyn-based band makes punk rock chamber music for the 21st century. Botanica describes their third album, "Botanica vs. the Truth Fish," as a vivid collection of sexy, swampy, political mayhem, and they'll be bringing that mayhem to the WFMU studio today.

Monday, October 24th, 2005, 6am - 9am
on
The John Allen Show
Imaginational Anthem is a guitar music collection documenting some of the most forward thinking fuitarists from the last 35 years. Named after a Max Och's composition, included on this CD, Imaginational Anthem celebrates the evolution of an approach developed and refined by masters such as John Fahey and Sandy Bull and carried on by modern volks including Glenn Jones and Jack Rose. Tune in online to John Allen's Monday morning's web only show from 6-9 am EDT for a set of music by Jack Rose, followed by an interview with the producer of Imaginational Anthem as we celebrate all those "riding Fahey's Ass to the bank".


The Nightingales
Saturday, October 22nd, 2005, 3pm - 6pm
on
The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T
In the early 1980's the UK's Nightingales were a relatively unknown cult band, but they were the critic's favorites in the post-punk music scene. John Peel championed them and said of their relative obscurity: "their performances will serve to confirm their excellence -- and other, infinitely better known bands stand revealed as charlatans". The Nightingales recently re-formed and played some dates in the US. These underground legends stop by the Cherry Blossom Clinic and honor us with an amazing session of intricate, complex rock! Check out the their recently reissued album from 1986, 'In the Good Old Country Way,' on Caroline True records, as well as some new 7" releases on Big Print.

Guest DJs Andee and Allan from Aquarius Records
Tuesday, October 18th, 2005, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

Tune in as Brian turns over 2 hours of the show to Andee Connors and Allan Horrocks from Aquarius Records, who've trekked out from San Francisco towing a sack of sub-sub-subterranean sounds that are sure to blow minds. These guys have given Brian longtime advice on some of the weirdest metal treasures in his collection, and they're promising some real jawdroppers today from across the musical spectrum that you will surely hear nowhere else. Andee also has some yet-to-be-released goodies on his own fine tUMULt label, including utterly twisted recordings of a bleak-souled 7th grade kid from Korea making fuzzed-out black metal trash at home to rival even Burzum! Don't miss!


Thee Fine Lines
Tuesday, October 18th, 2005, Noon - 3pm
on Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock

This power trio is not only the best Headcoats tribute band to come out of Springfield, Missouri, they're the best in the country! The band returns to WFMU for a second time, touring in support of a new EP on Licorice Tree Records. Three chords or less, two minutes or less, Thee Fine Lines are one fine band!


Dare Wright & Jean Nathan
Monday, October 17th, 2005, 6pm - 7pm
on
The Speakeasy with Dorian
An exploration of the bizarre life of Dare Wright, author of extremely strange children's book "The Lonely Doll" with author Jean Nathan, whose new book is called (aptly enough) "The Secret Life of the Lonely Doll."


Jose Gonzalez
Monday, October 17th, 2005, 3pm - 6pm
on Irene Trudel's show

The names Bert Jansch, Nick Drake, and Joao Gilberto have been rising to people's lips when describing the music of Jose Gonzalez. This Swedish-born singer-songwriter leans toward the melancholic but adds a classical Latin sound to his guitar playing. Jose is a rising star in the Scandanavian music community, and is about to tour the UK on the Twisted Folk Tour. He drops by to pluck out some of his darkly beautiful tunes on a classical guitar for WFMU.


Daniel Menche
Sunday, October 16th, 2005, 6am - 9am
on
Airborne Event with Dan Bodah
WFMU will be graced with a second visit from Portland, Oregon noise artist Daniel Menche [MEN-CHEE]. Menche's work has always stood apart from schlocky death-obsessed post-industrial noise artists because he's got a sense of humor and follows his curiosity to explore sound textures culled from places ranging from his own body to drums, electronics, and environmental sounds. Listen in as he pulls it all together into a foot-stomping, death-defying sonic experience.


Guest DJ Dave Buttle of Mr. Bongo Records
Saturday, October 15th, 2005, 6pm - 8pm
on
Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg
Mr Bongo specializes in digging up old Latin, Brazilian, and African gems as well as discovering edgy new artists from thereabouts - trendy now, but the label was one of the first in the UK to work these angles. While he's in town Dave will also spin at SOBs in Manhattan (later on Saturday night) and Black Betty in Williamsburg (Sunday).
