As a street musician, he also has created a body of free-flowing music from another planet ranging from demented voodoo-blues, junkyard calypso, fractured free-gospel and other uncategorizable sound forms that call to mind the greatest moments of Abner Jay, Albert Ayler, and Don Van Vliet. He opened the floodgates with a stunning pile of 7"s and LPs through the late 1970's and 80's that are being compiled today by the likes of Baltimore fans Nautical Almanac and Ehse Records. He's going to perform and chat with Brian today.

Wednesday, February 8th, 2006, Noon - 3pm

(He performed live at our East Orange studios in 1991.) Known as "Mr. Rhythm," Ulano has played and recorded with the top names in traditional jazz, and in the 1950s made TV appearances on The Tonight Show with Steve Allen, and the Ernie Kovacs Show. In the 1940s and '50s he recorded a series called "Drum's Fairy Tales," in which he played wild percussion solos while simultaneously reciting hepcat Mother Goose. He's been a drum teacher for decades, has written 2500 instruction books, and he has shoes older than you. Oh, and he once gigged with Public Image Ltd. And recorded with Moondog. Hear about it on Irwin's program, Feb. 8, from 1-2 pm. Sam will bring recordings and recollections about a lifetime behind the drum kit.

Having performed and recorded with the Swans, Rhys Chatham, La Monte Young, and Dave Soldier's Kropotkins, Jonathan Kane has been one of New York's great powerhouse avant-drummers. On his new Table of the Elements label release February, much of the great 1980's Downtown tradition of percussion and open-tuned electric guitar-based minimalism at maximum volume continues, though with deliberate incorporation of the trance of North Mississippi blues heroes like Fred McDowell, Junior Kimbrough, and Otha Turner (whose fife-and-snare workouts were definitely a huge element in the Kropotkins).

Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg
Rob Weisberg and co-host Irene Trudel will present wall-to-wall live music from Chicha Libre, Mavrothis Kontanis, Marta Topferova, and Andy Statman at Barbes tonight, with additional performers to be announced shortly. Come on down and experience a little seat-of-the-pants live radio!

Andy Statman began his career in the 70's as a virtuoso mandolinist who studied and performed with David Grisman. He went on to study clarinet with the klezmer legend Dave Tarras, becoming one of the original driving forces in the Klezmer revival.

Marta Topferova composes and performs beautifully lyrical music rooted in Latin rhythms such as Venezuelan vals, merengue and gaita, Cuban son and Argentinean zamba while adding her sensibility to it all with her background in classical music and the folklore of her native Czechoslovakia. She accompanies herself on the 4-string-cuatro.

Chicha Libre plays Chicha music from Venezuela. Chicha is the name of a corn-based liquor enjoyed by the Incas. Chicha is also the name of a South American music craze which started out in the late 70's in the Peruvian Amazon. These were songs loosely inspired by Colombian accordion-driven cumbias but blended with the distinctive sounds of Andean melodies, Cuban son, and the psychedelic sounds of surf guitars, farfisa organs and moog synthesizers.

Mavrothis Kontanis performs a variety of traditional and classical music from Greece and the Near East with oud, voice, and percussion. His focus is on the folk and urban music of Asia Minor's Greek population, but also touches upon the songs of the Greek mainland and islands which were influenced by the music of Asia Minor refugees.

Come down and witness it all in person! Barbes is located at 376 9th St (at 6th Ave) in Brooklyn, NY.

The Original Sins
Tuesday, December 13th, 2005, 3pm - 6pm
on
Brian Turner's show
While the Stooges, Ramones, Seeds, and 13th Floor Elevators certainly paved the way for armies of Garage Rock disciple bands, few have come up with the goods like Bethlehem, Pennsylvania's finest. Over 12 albums, frontman JT wrote classic songs through the band's mid 80's to mid 90's existence while simultaneously carving out his own supreme brand of psychedelic soul under the solo monicker Brother JT. Today on Brian's show it's an Original Sins reunion of sorts: organist Dan McKinney and drummer Seth Baer tear it up with JT once again, also joined by Photon Band bassist Art DiFuria.

Laura Veirs + Hotbird 7
Monday, December 12th, 2005, 3pm - 6pm
on Irene Trudel's show

"Carbon Glacier", named after a beautiful, dirty black and white glacier on the northern slopes of Mount Rainier, was Seattle's Laura Veirs' debut disc, and self-described as a "road record." Laura says, "All the songs are about transportation, motion," and all the images that crept into her psyche as she toured all over these United States and beyond. She's taking a few moments out from her travels to stop by WFMU at the top of the show to perform songs from it as well as her new one, "Year of Meteors."

Raised from the ashes of unknown NYC trio John Henry and claiming a failed barbeque chicken restaurant and a doomed satellite as twin muses, Hotbird 7 has been establishing its orbit since December 2002. The Brooklyn based band was originally launched as a duo with Adam Gold and Philip Winn juggling a station wagon full of instruments. The group has now expanded to four members with Tom Gavin sharing vocals, guitars, keyboards, and bass, and Jeff Devine staying put on drums and laptop. They aim to make a big beautiful noise: fast and slow, high and low, quiet, loud, twangy, spacey, and proud. Hotbird 7's self-released EP is available only at shows and a full length is scheduled for Spring 2006, and they drop by WFMU's studios for a live set.
