Yura Yura Teikoku
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.


Painter Joan Snyder

on
The Speakeasy with Dorian
A Survey of her work will open at the Danforth Museum of Art in Framingham, MA, and a new monograph of her work has just been published by Harry N. Abrams.


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.


Dave the Spazz fills in for Glen Jones with King Coleman & the Creepy T's, live at the WFMU Record Fair!
Sunday, November 6th, 2005, Noon - 3pm
on Music To Spazz By with Dave the Spazz

on
Dave Emory's show
Part 530 in Dave Emory's "For the Record" series


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
Tuesday, November 1st, 2005, Noon - 3pm
on
Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock
Just because Halloween is over, doesn't mean WFMU's scare tactics are! These Milwaukee maniacs mix dirty garage-punk with a side of Alice Cooper horror for a frighteningly good brew, which we should expect from Beer City!

on
Inflatable Squirrel Carcass with Rich Hazelton
The Inflatable Squirrel Carcass welcomes its first guests as Michael Evans (percussion, analog electronics, theremin) and Kenta Nagai (guitar, shamisen) take over for three hours. They will perform live, present recordings from other performances, DJ, and interview. Unlike the last attempt to have a guest on the Inflatable Squirrel Carcass, if these guys forget their instruments they'll still be entertaining.

on

Thee Minks
Thursday, October 27th, 2005, 11pm - 2am
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.

Tuesday, October 25th, 2005, 3pm - 6pm
on
Brian Turner's show
The spazzed-out inner recesses of the minds of Baltimore's Twig, Carly, and Max come alive today via an arsenal of junkyard electronics. Squeals, drones, clanging, bashed percussion, oven-mitt guitar playing, blips, blaps, confusion 100% guaranteed.


The Subway Surfers
Tuesday, October 25th, 2005, Noon - 3pm
on Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock

It's a runaway garage-punk train from Jersey City as the Subway Surfers storm WFMU to derail any preconceived notions as to what you thought music was! Next stop: Mayhem!

Botanica
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.


Jack Rose and Imaginational Anthem Special
Monday, October 24th, 2005, 6am - 9am
on
The John Allen Show

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.

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!

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
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).

The Mutts
Saturday, October 8th, 2005, 3pm - 6pm
on The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T

All the way from Brighton in the UK, the Mutts storm the Cherry Blossom Clinic to blast out an amazing set of early-70s-sounding hard rock. Their one guitarist somehow plays like Angus *and* Malcolm Young combined, giving the band a sound that recalls early AC/DC or Sir Lord Baltimore. But at the same time you'd be hard-pressed to find a review that doesn't mention the Ramones as well. Don't miss this slamming session, and pick up the Mutts' new album 'Life in Dirt,' out now on Fatcat.

Paul Metzger
Sunday, October 2nd, 2005, 9pm - 11pm
on Stochastic Hit Parade / A440 with Bethany Ryker

The banjo like you've never heard it before. Sometimes Metzger's "modified" banjo recalls a flute playing Carnatic ragas, then takes turns towards Derek Bailey-style textural elements in long, meditative pieces that build like one long single phrase. Paul drops in to the WFMU studios on a tour that brings him to the east coast from his residence in Minnesota.


A Moving Sound
Saturday, October 1st, 2005, 9pm - Midnight
on

on
Aircheck
This season of Aircheck concludes this Thursday with more insanely over-the-top gospel radio from from the Reverend Lester Knox of Tifton, Georgia, whose self-financed religious broadcasts were heard from around 1980 til 1992. You may have caught some of the Reverend's rantings last season on Aircheck; that material ultimately ended up on a Smack Shire CD release. But tonight's program features all unreleased preachings from Reverend Knox, now with added hellfire! Don't miss it!


Singing Sadie
Wednesday, September 28th, 2005, Noon - 3pm
on Irwin Chusid

Singing Sadie, recently arrived on US shores via tramp steamer from her native Australia, will either sing or break glass on Irwin's Gender Bias program. Sadie harkens back to the not-so-innocent pre-WW 2 era of dime-a-dance torch singers and flapper vamps. But she'll never be mistaken for Helen Morgan. With old ballroom band records, and without inhibition, Sadie wails original lyrics that are naughty, sick, degraded, perverse, debauched -- you get the picture. She also tap dances. Her debut release, Songs for Swingers, has inspired equal measures of admiration and loathing.


"Interview with Sander Hicks about The Big Wedding"
Tuesday, September 27th, 2005, 6pm - 7pm

Circle
Tuesday, September 27th, 2005, 3pm - 6pm
on
Brian Turner's show
Made up of classically-trained musicians, Circle emerged from Pori, Finland in 1991 and continued to defy categorization; just when they get pegged as prog-leaning space-rockers, they then throw down an LP of minimalist metal with a guy doing complete Rob Halford vocal wailing, a sound they can swing to as easily as they lock into sinsiter Kraut grooves or explore glacial electronic soundscapes. They put in a rare US radio performance on Brian's show today.


Bill Morrison
Monday, September 26th, 2005, 6pm - 7pm
on
The Speakeasy with Dorian
Filmmaker Bill Morrison and musical friends visit the show. Bill was last on the program to talk about his film Decasia; this time, he'll be talking about the Film-makers Cooperative 2nd Annual Benefit Concert at the Angel Orensanz Center.

on
Irene Trudel's show
New Mexico-based Art of Flying is on an east coast scaled-down scouting mission. Singer David Costanza said, "We are three!! We sing peaceballads. Political love lullabyes will do nicely in a pinch".

Kiran Ahluwalia
Saturday, September 24th, 2005, 9pm - Midnight
on
Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg
Kiran Ahluwalia [KIRIN AH-LOO-WAH-LEE-YUH] is a performer of two distinct styles of vocal music from the Indian subcontinent. She sings ghazals [GUZZLES], an ancient form of sung poetry, as well as folk songs from her family's native Punjabi region of India and Pakistan. Like FMU's own Laura Cantrell, Kiran squeezed in music while maintaining a "straight" career for many years before giving up the day jobs and trying to make it full-time as a singer. So far so good - her new CD has made it to #4 on the World Music Charts Europe and was on the CMJ "world music" top 20 for 14 weeks. Kiran joins Rob during the first hour-plus of the show to chat and introduce songs from the cd, self-titled and released by Triloka/Artemis, not to mention plug her next local gig, at Satalla in NYC September 29. And maybe she'll do a little unplugged performing...

The Enablers
Friday, September 23rd, 2005, 3pm - 6pm
on Mike L.'s show

The Enablers are a San Francisco group that backs the noir-ish spoken soliloquies of writer Pete Simonelli with dark soundscapes and music that bares unreasonable amounts of intensity in spite of its spare construction. With ties to artists as varied as Nice Strong Arm, The Swans, Timco, Toiling Midgets, Tarnation, and June of 44, the Enablers sound is unique, demanding, and not soon forgotten.

He brings a handful of new songs exclusively to WFMU, and plays a few of his ever-evolving favorites. Bird songs never sound the same. Refresh your ears with his last session here and be the first to hear his new material this Sunday.

Neil Rogers
Thursday, September 15th, 2005, 6pm - 7pm
on
Aircheck
Acerbic, witty, and downright mean, Neil Rogers is the king of talk radio in South Florida. For over twenty years, Rogers has reigned as not just the biggest talk host in Miami, but the biggest name in radio in Florida. This week on Aircheck we feature Neil's glory days on WIOD in the early 90's. A talk host like no other, Rogers is openly gay, furiously liberal, and always at odds with his employers and any caller who gets on his nerves. Over the years, Rogers has been a mentor to talk legends like Randi Rhodes and Bob Lassiter, and WOR's Lionel is a big fan too. Listen to Aircheck this week and find out why legions of Rogers enthusiasts call Neil, "God".
