MjolniirDXP and Epileptinomicon
Friday, August 13th, 2010, Midnight - 3am
Wm. Berger presents My Castle of Quiet
If anyone ever made rumble to score a dance party for Lovecraft's Old Ones, Mt Reisinger does. Tales of a set to remember at the Aquarius Recs./WFMU SXSW showcase led Wm. Berger to the Epileptinomicon CDr, "Changeling House Summer" -- a lurching, sub-fi epic of basement gloom; an enveloping soundtrack to several nightmares, like German Oak taking five, while a sleep-deprived MB f**ks around with their gear. Known as ECON for syllabic efficiency, the project has just released a second disc, "II," a work no less haunted, but of perhaps even greater subtlety and soul-exploration. ECON's Reisinger visits the Castle on tour with the duo MjolniirDXP -- guaranteed to be ECON plus, with a slithery bottom end to support the amorphous drag of the Old Ones above. With one set each from MjolniirDXP and Epileptinomicon, this eagerly anticipated Colorado horror-rock comes "home" to My Castle of Quiet.

? and the Mysterians
Thursday, August 12th, 2010, 9pm - Midnight

Jessica Kane
Wednesday, August 11th, 2010, 3pm - 6pm
on Irwin Chusid

Artist/storyteller Jessica Kane returns to Irwin's program. Kane appeared last April after the release of a 4-CD collection of autobiographical vignettes, "Straining to Parallel Park in an Empty Field." Her stories segue from her childhood with an overbearing, sarcastic single mom, to her screwed-up apartment life in hipster Brooklyn, to rural cabin-dwelling in the Adirondacks with her part-caveman husband Chris. This week marks the opening of Kane's new play, Two Sizes Too Small, at the New York International Fringe Festival. The show opens at The Club at La Mama, 74A East 4th Street in lower Manhattan on Friday the 13th, with five performances scheduled through August 25.

Michael Rother of Neu!/Harmonia
Tuesday, August 10th, 2010, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner

As participants in the heyday of early 70's Krautrock go, Michael Rother's resume and contributions to the world of experimental music and progressive rock might be among the highest. He spent time as guitarist in a 1971 incarnation of Kraftwerk, then co-founded the legendary combo Neu! with Klaus Dinger. With a combination of studio manipulations with producer Conny Plank, Dinger's driving motorik drumming and Rother's spirited and textural guitar playing, Neu! created a body of music that weighed heavily across sections of classic and modern music cornerstones as diverse as Joy Division, PiL, Bowie, and an entire electronic music scene.

He also was a member of Harmonia, joining Cluster's Hans-Joachim Roedelius and Dieter Moebius, worked with Eno, and created a selection of solo recordings into the present time. Rother has been touring as Hallogallo 2010 using his past projects as a template for live performance, joined by Steve Shelley of Sonic Youth on drums, and Aaron Mullan of Tall Firs on bass. The trio recently performed during WFMU's broadcast at Primavera Sound in Barcelona, and have shows this week at Maxwell's, Lincoln Center, and in Philadelphia. Michael stops by Brian's show today joined by Steve and Aaron for an extended chat about his activities past and present, with a generous helping of excerpts from his great recordings.

Bebe Fang (Keili fills in for Therese)
Monday, August 9th, 2010, Midnight - 3am
Beastin' The Airwaves! with Keilidh
Remember that time Jason Kuperschmidt told you morning glory seeds would get you high so you ate a handful of them? But you later found out it was really a handful of belladonna and you passed out on the couch? As you woke to your Cocker Spaniel puppy licking your face, you were enveloped by the warm cathode-ray glow of a vampire movie flickering in black and white and the smell of cinnamon buns and absinthe, while your ears tried to make sense of the fact that your brother had put on an album of whale sounds AND a muddy Kraftwerk tape, and you felt the warmth in your chest spread slowly through your body? Seriously, remember that time? Apparently Bebe Fang was there too, because that's how they sound, and they're bringing their special new meaning for the phrase "Dutch Treat" to WFMU's Beastin' The Airwaves! with Keili on August 9 from 12 - 3AM. You bring the deadly nightshade, DJ Keili will bring the puppy. 

A live performance by McGinty & White
Sunday, August 8th, 2010, 9pm - Midnight
World of Echo with Dave Mandl
Swoon to the music of keyboardist Joe McGinty (the brains behind the Loser's Lounge series), silver-throated crooner Ward White, and a live string section.

Balkan Beat Box, Mucca Pazza and Asphalt Orchestra Live from Lincoln Center Out of Doors
Saturday, August 7th, 2010, 6pm - 9pm
Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg
A supercharged genre-bashing show live from Lincoln Center Out of Doors, one of New York's great free summer music series: First, we'll see if we can reel in a bit of the Bang on a Can All-Stars' spin-off artsy street band, Asphalt Orchestra, as they march around the plaza playing everything from Goran Bregovic's Balkan brass tunes to Mingus to a new commission from Yoko Ono. Then on stage at Damrosch Bandshell, we'll be literally blown away first by Chicago's big and bombastic circus punk marching band Mucca Pazza and then by the kings of the New Mediterraneo electro sound, Balkan Beat Box, who infuse hip-hop attitude and punk intensity into big beat anthems blending sounds of the Balkans, Israel, Spain and North Africa.

Saturday, August 7th, 2010, 3pm - 6pm
The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T
The Cherry Blossom Clinic is thrilled to host a live broadcast from the legendary Death. This Detroit trio never got the credit their groundbreaking proto-punk sound deserved back in the 70s, but with the release of their universally heralded collection "For the Whole World to See," the band is finally receiving some much-deserved acclaim.

Death set New York City afire with their set at last week's Ponderosa Stomp at Lincoln Center, and Terre T got the show on tape! So tune in this Saturday to hear a live set from the one and only Death!

Pre US DMC Finals Special
Friday, August 6th, 2010, 3pm - 6pm
Put The Needle On The Record with Billy Jam
On the day before the 2010 US DMC finals, the annual turntablist DJ competition to be held at Santos Party House, WFMU will host a special pre-DMC special in the radio station's Jersey City studios. Special guest of the day will be Grand Wizzard Theodore - the legendary hip-hop DJ who created the scratch. Also in the studio will the reigning world champion DMC DJ Shiftee from New York, the runner up in last year's US DMC DJ Mista B from San Francisco, current DMC contestant DJ Solo representing Jersey City who made it all the way into the 2010 US Finals, Maryland turntablist and WFMU regular DJ ALF, plus the US DMC organizer Christie Z Pabon.

Chris Kucinski and Owen Osborn
Thursday, August 5th, 2010, 3am - 6am
Awesome New Place with Bennett4Senate
Kucinski and Osborn wield custom-built electronics live in studio for an extended, improvised set of recursive sampling. The duo is known for their collaborations with the vibrant, psychdelic artist collective Dearraindrop, and is fresh off a series of residencies at the Experimental Television Center. The performance will use six "Recorder Machines," the latest creation from Osborn's instrument-building project, Critter and Guitari. Expect a sound nest of alarming realism.

The Pleasure Kills
Wednesday, August 4th, 2010, 9pm - Midnight
on The Evan "Funk" Davies Show

The sunny, infectious power-pop sound of the Pleasure Kills will have you checking the calendar to make sure it's still 2010 and you haven't been transported to a Blondie show in 1975 or a Nikki and the Corvettes show in 1980. Not content to simply echo the past, these guys put their own mark on a classic sound and your ears will be smiling as a result. They're on a nationwide tour to support their new album Bring Me A Match (Polypore) - local listeners can catch them at Bruar Falls in Brooklyn on Sunday August 1, and at the Cake Shop on Monday the 2nd. They'll also be playing at the Brighton Bar in Long Branch, NJ, on Thursday the 5th. Check their myspace page for a show near you!

Nardwuar vs. Drake & Greg Ginn
Wednesday, August 4th, 2010, 8pm - 9pm
Nardwuar The Human Serviette Show
An Interview with Canadian rapper Drake plus Part 2 of the "Ron Reyes 50th Birthday Special" which just happens to be a conversation of with Greg Ginn of Black Flag! Doot doola doot doo... doot doo.

Borful Tang
Wednesday, August 4th, 2010, 7pm - 8pm
on Do or DIY with People Like Us

A beacon of light transmitted from his hermetic dwelling in Oakland, California, Borful Tang is proud to bring a gaggle of exclusive new material to the DO or DIY show. With the help of producer/engineer Dominic Cramp (Evangelista, Vulcanus 68, Qulfus) Mr. Tang has crafted a handful of short narrative pieces compromised of nuggets from his vast vault of found sounds: a news report on the Commodore 64; a warped skipping Jesus record for children; an Austrian synth demonstration DVD; the Sapphire and Steele box set! It is all source material for this fiendish cut-up specialist. And all of it set to a musical interplay that puts him in a class all his own. These pieces are also in support and celebration of Borful Tang's latest, release, Herd and Unherd, out now on Gigante Sound.

Bill Orcutt
Tuesday, August 3rd, 2010, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner

During the 1990's, Miami's Harry Pussy provided among the most confrontational and challenging recordings and live sets to a post-hardcore generation, and Bill Orcutt's blasted guitar playing defied easy categorization. Such is the case upon his return last year with a solo LP A New Way to Pay Old Debts, whereupon he takes an old Kay acoustic guitar rigged with a found pickup and tears out some unbelievably gutted, aggressive yet defined picking/shredding compositions to make even even seasoned guitar composition connoisseurs turn their heads for the mere reason that you've rarely heard the instrument approached this way. Comparisons to the woolier moments of Cecil Taylor, fractured player-piano- roll sounds of Conlon Nancarrow all enter a decidedly unguitar-like realm of performance, with gutbucket resonations and almost microtonal approach to strings in the spirit of pure freedom and anarchy.

Dawn of Midi
Tuesday, August 3rd, 2010, 6am - 9am
The Long Rally with Scott McDowell
Slow burning improvising trio with musicians from Morocco, Pakistan and India, Dawn of Midi are a shot in the arm to the "piano trio," dosing the proceedings with a restrained momentum constructed of space and timbre, referencing stuff like Ahmad Jamal, Bill Evans, John Cage and Olivier Messiaen. Catch them at the Iridium (Broadway at 51st St.) midnight on Friday, July 23rd.

Turkish Delight
Sunday, August 1st, 2010, Midnight - 3am
Surface Noise with Joe McGasko
Join Joe for some Turkish Delight this Saturday as he welcomes Listener Olgu Ayatac as his guest for a special extended edition of Single File. Olgu will be bringing in her collection of Turkish pop and psych 45s from the 60s and 70s, most of them never comped. Tune in for some serious Anadolu sounds!

Vagabond Opera
Saturday, July 31st, 2010, 6pm - 9pm
on Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg

Portland's lustily theatrical band / troupe / spectacle Vagabond Opera are the Pacific Northwest's charismatic champions of old-country Bohemian cabaret. But not totally old-school - they do it their own way, citing influences from Astor Piazolla to Zappa. Or as they put it, "Paris hot Jazz, gut bucket swing, tangos, Ukrainian folk-punk ballads, klezmer and vigorous originals meet a world of riverboat gambling queens, Turkish belly dancers, and the enigmatic Marlene Dietrich." Vagabond Opera descends upon WFMU between NY gigs - Kingsborough Community College bandshell in Manhattan Beach, Brooklyn July 31 and Joe's Pub Aug 1 - to serenade us (sans fire-eater - safety first) live in the studio.

Detroit Breakdown Festival (Ponderosa Stomp) Live from Lincoln Center
Saturday, July 31st, 2010, 1pm - 6pm
Fool's Paradise with Rex
Tune in for a special expanded edition of Fool's Paradise as WFMU joins forces the Ponderosa Stomp Foundation to broadcast excerpts of the Detroit Breakdown Festival LIVE from Lincoln Center. The line-up is scheduled to include Dennis Coffey, blues slop genius Eddie "The Grunt" Kirkland, former Fortune Records soulsters Melvin Davis and Spyder Turner, Motown recording sensations The Velvelettes and more! FMU DJs Rex, Dave the Spazz, Gaylord Fields and Mr. Finewine will provide insight, analysis, and interviews. Rare Detroit 45s will also be served-up for top-flight entertainment value. The musical mayhem runs from 1PM to 6PM on Saturday July 31st. Radio history will be made!

Friday, July 30th, 2010, Midnight - 3am
on Wm. Berger presents My Castle of Quiet

Anthony Mangicapra is the joker in the deck of noise--a painter, draughtsman and master of eerie sonic collage--also a long-haired, furry-faced, approachable guy, who's always ready with a good/bad joke and amiable conversation. That said, the man has a well-developed dark side, a Pagan nature, and a penchant for making your skin crawl with sound. His project since 2001, Hoor-paar-Kraat, has expanded these notions over many releases (some on Anthony's own Goat Eater Arts label), and encompassed a great many collaborators. Comparisons could be made to the earliest-of-early Current 93 releases, or Nurse With Wound classics like Homotopy to Marie and Thunder Perfect Mind, though Hoor-paar-Kraat is almost as likely to hit the listener with rapid-fire comic cut-ups, as he is to creep you slowly with patiently building, nearly static, haunted hover of the highest order. You're in a chamber inside a pyramid, the air is absolutely fetid, but at least you've got a good drink in your hand, and a semi-comfortable seat--as Hoor-paar-Kraat has deemed it so. Anthony brings a unique performance to the Castle airwaves.

Nardwuar vs. Ron Reyes
Wednesday, July 28th, 2010, 8pm - 9pm
Nardwuar The Human Serviette Show
Interview with former Black Flag singer & Red Kross drummer, Ron Reyes, on the occasion of his 50th Birthday! You saw him in the "Decline of  Western Civilization Part 1," now hear him on the Nardwuar the Human Serviette Radio Show!  Doot doola doot doo... doot doo!

The Old Codger fills in for Mac
Tuesday, July 27th, 2010, 8pm - 9pm
Old Codger with Courtney T. Edison
The Old Codger will pollute the airwaves with the stench of petty acrimony and 78 rpm surface noise on Tuesday, July 27, filling in for the Antique Phonograph Hour (8-9 pm). The Codger is a nasty piece of work made up of many smaller pieces of nastiness. However, the program will contain at least 40 minutes of the Codger NOT talking. Tune in, and keep one vigilant finger on the mute button.

Thanksgiving Brown
Tuesday, July 27th, 2010, Midnight - 3am
Coffee Break For Heroes & Villains with Noah
The Return of the man with many talents; writer, rapper, DJ, record label owner, producer, concert booker and palate of fine foods! Tune in for some audio goodies!

Monday, July 26th, 2010, 6pm - 7pm
Too Much Information with Benjamen Walker
Joining Benjamen Walker will be George Foy, George Prochnik and Garret Keizer, who write about noise; Crank Sturgeon, GX Jupitter-Larsen, and Noveller, who make noise!

Suuns of Montreal
Monday, July 26th, 2010, 9am - Noon
on Bob W.'s show

What's up, Montreal? How about some dark edged art rock, driven by rock steady rhythms, washed with gazer guitar and dappled with electro trimmings. Get blissfully lost in Sunns' sub-indie sound via an exclusive live session at WFMU, engineered by Trent "Trend" Wolbe. In the clubs, Suuns, formerly known as Zeroes, is playing with fellow Montreal up-and-comers Parlovr at Mercury Lounge on Wednesday, July 21 and at the Williamsburg Knitting Factory on Friday, July 23. Or you could always see them in Winooski, Vermont. Winooski...

Summer Cumbia Spectacular: Chico Trujillo, Chancha Via Circuito, El Remolon, Tremor
Saturday, July 24th, 2010, 6pm - 9pm
Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg
First: Zizek is one of the driving forces of the cumbia revival and the electro-cumbia-remix movement - a cutting edge cumbia-driven but genre-clashing club / record label (ZZK records) / inter-disciplinary artistic scene based in Buenos Aires. Three of Zizek's finest homegrown Argentine artists are on this summer's Zizek North American tour (which kicks off at Le Poisson Rouge Tuesday July 20 and Brooklyn Bowl Thursday July 22): Chancha Via Circuito, El Remolon, and Tremor. We'll meet all of them, and we'll be treated to a live set from Tremor.

Later: Chico Trujillo, Chile's wildly popular nine-piece cumbia battalion, mixes classic cumbia with hints of rock and ska and a general air of revelry and irreverence. Seeking to expand the borders of their endless fiesta, Chico Trujillo has launched a US invasion - with a US-debut cd, Chico de Oro on Barbes Records (a retrospective of their first decade in the trenches) and a very successful tour last month. While they were here we captured Chile's merry pranksters of cumbia for an exuberant live session.

Jim Jones Revue & The Ettes
Saturday, July 24th, 2010, 3pm - 6pm
The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T
The Cherry Blossom Clinic is excited to welcome the Jim Jones Revue to the WFMU studios on Sat July 23rd. This UK group is the talk of both sides of the Atlantic, with their fiery live show drawing comparisons to the Faces, MC5, early Dr. Feelgood and even Jerry Lee Lewis. They'll be playing shows at The Mercury Lounge on July 22nd, Maxwell's on July 23rd, and the Knitting Factory on July 24th, but tune in to the CBC with Terre T to check out the Jim Jones Revue live on the WFMU airwaves on Sat July 23rd and then also stay tuned, because on that very show the fantastic band The Ettes will also grace WFMU studios:

The Ettes are a Tennessee powerhouse combine low-fi guitar fuzz with ethereal post girl group vocals to create a sound that is both gorgeous and rocking. This session will be one of their final stops before heading to England to record their new album at the legendary Toe Rag Studios, so hopefully they'll debut a new song or two on the CBC! You can see them live at the Knitting Factory in Brooklyn on July 23rd, but be sure to tune in to the Cherry Blossom Clinic to hear them on July 23rd!

Otis Williams of The Temptations
Saturday, July 24th, 2010, 11am - 1pm
Michael Shelley's show
Michael chats with Otis Williams about his 50 (yes, fifty) years as a member of The Temptations!

Mike Belitsky of the Sadies (Joe Belock fills in for Tamar)
Thursday, July 22nd, 2010, Noon - 3pm
on Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock

Drummer extraordinaire Mike Belitsky has played with Neko Case, the Pernice Brothers, Jale and many other combos but first and foremost he is the timekeeper for the always-amazing Sadies. Mike checks in to give us the lowdown on the Sadies' excellent new LP, Darker Circles, and on their show at the Bowery Ballroom in NYC on July 23.

DJ Ghostdad
Thursday, July 22nd, 2010, 3am - 6am
Awesome New Place with Bennett4Senate
Webmaster, producer, journeyman DJ, and son of New Jersey DJ Ghostdad comes to Awesome New Place to play a freeform miasma - church basement record digs, vuvuzela dance edits, and hopefully some tracks from his forthcoming album with Fully Fitted brothers XXXChange and Chris Devlin. Between sets Bennett will ask Ghostdad probing questions about his ongoing Max/MSP programming, efforts to teach the kids, and tips on requesting "club music" at New Jersey middle school dances.

Nardwuar vs. Lydia Lunch & Tommy Chong
Wednesday, July 21st, 2010, 8pm - 9pm
Nardwuar The Human Serviette Show
Interviews with Lydia Lunch and Tommy Chong two people that share the exact number of Twitter characters in their names! Doot doola doot doo... doot doo!

Wednesday, July 21st, 2010, 7pm - 8pm
on Do or DIY with People Like Us

"I have to say, I'm not very good at writing about myself or my stuff. Am I supposed to do it in the 3rd person? Who knows. Here's a paragraph for you. Feel free to change it, reduce it, expand on it or ask me to come up with something else entirely. There's no theory or deep thought gone into this mix, to be honest I was just happy to be doing my own thing for once so it's just unadulterated nonsense really." - Osymyso

Seven Second Delay at Upright Citizens Brigade Theater
Wednesday, July 21st, 2010, 6pm - 7pm
Seven Second Delay with Ken and Andy
Seven Second Delay returns to the Upright Citizen's Brigade Theater for another hour of live broadcast comedy.

Ed Pitaro
Tuesday, July 20th, 2010, 6pm - 7pm
Pig Talk with Bronwyn C.
It's Deep Dish as Bronwyn and Jay welcome special guest Ed Pitaro, food writer and chef, to discuss why Americans drink so much Bud Lite, class distinctions in beverage choice, and what's the deal with the oatmeal martini.

Tuesday, July 20th, 2010, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner

Certainly one of the cornerstones of U.S. 90's indie rock, Washington DC's Unrest evolved from schizophrenic postpunk roots into finely crafted, texture-heavy, Brit-reverent, and even experimental pop music. Records like Malcolm X Park and Imperial FFRR earned them a heavy fan base and eventual gravitation onto 4AD records by 1993 after a huge discography of homegrown releases on leader Mark Robinson's Teenbeat record label. They disbanded in 1994, did one reunion show in 2005, and return with the lineup of Robinson, Bridget Cross, and Phil Krauth for a Teenbeat 26th Anniversary tour. Unrest makes a stop by Brian's show for what's sure to be a killer live set. You can also check them out at Maxwells in Hoboken on July 7th, and July 9th at the Bell House in Brooklyn.

PC Worship
Saturday, July 17th, 2010, 3am - 6am
Nat Roe
Channeling Nirvana via Peter Brotzmann, Bushwick's PC Worship would evoke heroin chic if their songs weren't so damn intelligent. Featuring members of Gary War and Teeth Mountain among others, PC Worship picked haphazardly from their monstrous pile of songs in WFMU's studios earlier this week and are busy mastering the recordings for broadcast on Nat Roe's program this Saturday at 3AM. Watch out for this band, guys, Imma tell you this much.

The Three Chord Monte Comeback Special (Joe Belock fills in for Billy Jam)
Friday, July 16th, 2010, 3pm - 6pm
Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock
Move over Elvis and Lola Heatherton - the Three Chord Monte program returns to the WFMU airwaves with a sizzling hot summer lineup crammed into three hours. First up, it's Muck and the Mires, returning to Jersey City for the first time in six years! Imagine if the Ramones had played the Cavern Club -- that's what these Boston rave-ups sound like. Then, it's the raw Stooges-inspired rock sounds of Wheels On Fire from Athens, Ohio, who are so rocking, they don't even need a bass player!

C. Lavender
Friday, July 16th, 2010, Midnight - 3am
on Wm. Berger presents My Castle of Quiet

C. Lavender is a sound-experimenter from WFMU's home state of NJ, whose latest work renders collage noise with an unabashed violence, but also a sense of whimsy, and occasional bumpy rhythms never off the table. When she isn't lurching amps across the room with the Laundry Room Squelchers, or leaping into crowds off a Cock ESP stage, or traveling great distances to play four-minute sets, C Lav is in her studio crafting the excellent tracks currently up at her myspace page. Lavender has been an avid supporter of the My Castle of Quiet program from the very start, having co-hosted twice with William, and also contributed the unsettling-yet-somehow-jovial "Rites of Winter" to the MCoQ 2010 WFMU Marathon premium CD. Now she returns to WFMU to ply her considerable sound-mashing talents. Will she beat up her Precision-knockoff bass, sending signals flying, or will she pilot her ferocious Soviet synthesizer? Hopefully all this and more.

Nardwuar vs. Gene Hoglan
Wednesday, July 14th, 2010, 8pm - 9pm
Nardwuar The Human Serviette Show
An interview with The "Atomic Clock" Gene Hoglan, known for his incredible Death Metal, Heavy Metal, Blast Beat style of drumming  *and* now, get this, also his instructional "How to Play Drums" DVD!  You've seen him play in Dethklok, Death, Strapping Young Lad and many more. Now hear him on WFMU!  Doot doola doot doo... doot doo!

Coliseum live in the studio AND a tribute to Ronnie James Dio!
Tuesday, July 13th, 2010, Noon - 3pm
Diane's Kamikaze Fun Machine
Louisville, Kentucky's Coliseum will perform a live set on the Fun Machine; they're touring to support their newest release: "House With A Curse" produced by J Robbins (of Government Issue & Jawbox fame)! Check them out at: Europa/Brooklyn- Thursday July 8th, in Bethlehem, PA (St. Bernard's) Weds July 7th, and Philadelphia July 6th at The Barbary. Coliseum's postmodern hardcore sound is as muscular and brutal as it is edgy and precise. A trio to be reckoned with, and coming to WFMU! Later in the program Diane pays tribute to Ronnie James Dio, who would have turned 68 on July 10th, with a journey through this amazing vocalist's rich career. TUNE IN!

Blacastan and Moe Pope
Tuesday, July 13th, 2010, Midnight - 3am
Coffee Break For Heroes & Villains with Noah
You will never catch Blacastan rocking a mullet or a neon cardigan, he'll never auto-tune his lyrics. His sound is not only the past, but a glimpse of an unpaved lane on the highway to hip hop's holy land. The way Rap was meant to be heard! Hailing from Hartford, CT, Blacastan just dropped his debut, "Blac Sabbath" on Brick Records.

MC Moe Pope's career first took off in the early 2000s with Bay Area-based hip-hop band Mission (who later became known as Crown City Rockers). He's also been connected to Electric Company and Project Move. Now armed with a brand new release, "Life After God," also on Brick Records. Moe Pope delivers solid boom bap hip hop for dedicated heads.

Tune in as both MCs drop by to chat about music and play some of their favorites...

Solar-Powered Electric Music Video Screening
Monday, July 12th, 2010, 9pm - Midnight
Sound and Safe with Trent
Civilian space exploration is still prohibitively expensive (for most of us), but intergalactic travel can be closely approximated by a simple journey to the East River on the evening of July 12th.

Join Solar One, Astralwerks Records, and WFMU's DJ Trent for a 100% solar-powered evening of electronic music videos of every vintage. Solar One is located on 23rd Street @ the East River.

TP Orchestre Poly-Rythmo de Cotonou feature + Sol Okarina live
Saturday, July 10th, 2010, 6pm - 9pm
Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg
TP Orchestre Poly-Rythmo's scorching soul, rock, Afrobeat and vodou influenced, psychedelic tinged sound made them stars in Benin in the late '60s and early '70s. But they struggled to survive the country's economically challenging Marxist years. Now, with compilations of their '70s tracks on the Soundway and Analog Africa labels, they've suddenly become international stars. Their US debut concert at the Gerald W. Lynch Theater at John Jay College (as part of the annual Lincoln Center Festival) Sunday July 11 is one of the most highly anticipated shows of the summer. We'll get an introduction to Poly-Rythmo produced by Elodie Maillot of Radio France / RFI Musique, who has traveled extensively with the band.

Plus: From July 6-10, Spanish-speaking and bilingual artists will descend upon New York for the annual Latin Alternative Music Conference (LAMC). Among the conference highlights are the showcase concerts it spawns around town. Venezuela-born, Bogota-based singer Sol Okarina is among those making her NY debut this year at LAMC. She'll display her engaging blend of indie rock, cumbia, Caribbean and South American sounds as part of the multi-artist LAMC Acoustic Showcase at Le Poisson Rouge on Bleecker St., Thursday July 8. And she'll stop by FMU tonight for a solo performance and chat.

on Ken's Last Ever Radio Extravaganza

Fool's Gold Recorded Live at the Bell House
Saturday, July 3rd, 2010, 6pm - 9pm
Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg
A live set from LA's African-influenced Fool's Gold recorded by WFMU Sound Goddess Irene Trudel live at the Bell House in Gowanus, Brooklyn on February 19, 2010. The band's lead singer Luke Top was raised in Israel; that curious language you'll hear against buoyant South African and Ethiopian and Saharan style grooves is Hebrew. Plus keep an ear out at the end of the set for a guest appearance by members of Tinariwen, for whom Fool's Gold opened at Bell House. Fool's Gold will be back on tour in North America this month, returning to New York on Sunday afternoon July 25 at Central Park Summerstage on a stellar Africa-themed bill with Bassekou Kouyate & Ngoni Ba and Burkina Electric, before heading to Europe in August.

Friday, July 2nd, 2010, 3pm - 6pm
Put The Needle On The Record with Billy Jam

Two Years on Welfare
Friday, July 2nd, 2010, Midnight - 3am
on Wm. Berger presents My Castle of Quiet

Two Years on Welfare's Glenn N. lists his artist location as Filthy, Pennsylvania, on his myspace page...but in a reality where Two Years on Welfare dictates the landscape, the "filthy" is offset and reinterpreted considerably by hypnotic, pulsating, eerie psychedelia. Bringing to mind a more meditative take on the Broken Flag catalog, TYoW haunt and vibrate like Skullflower or Ramleh on a more contemplative path. The newer tracks on TYoW's page reveal an affinity for horizontal landscaping, in the form of 10-min. chunks of levitating chill, and ominous, cinematic provocation. Since the first, two-track demo cassette, and "Sleep," TYoW's ghostly, enveloping contribution to the 2010 WFMU Marathon My Castle of Quiet premium compilation, this project's visit to the Castle has been eagerly anticipated. Wm. Berger catches Two Years on Welfare at the start of a summer mini-tour, with shows in Brooklyn, Easthampton, New Brunswick, home-base Philly, Baltimore and Richmond.

Secret Cities
Thursday, July 1st, 2010, Midnight - 3am
Night People
Stay up late for a session with North Dakota's own Secret Cities on Night People. Their debut record Pink Graffiti just out on Western Vinyl is sequenced Spector with snowflakes and strings. Boy and girl vocals, boy and girl instruments, boy and girl whistles! It's a parade, a float, a march, an awesome band from Fargo on Night People.

Soft Tags
Wednesday, June 30th, 2010, 9pm - Midnight
on The Evan "Funk" Davies Show

Soft Tags' latest release, the double CD Mathematical Monsters, garnered near-universal comparisons to early Clean and Go-Betweens, and we see no reason to buck that trend. We're also confident that it's the best album ever to be inspired by Benoit Mandelbrot. The Portland-based group is on tour across the USA, and as befitting a band that takes their inspiration from dreams, mathematicians and paranormal events they will be appearing at the Bell House in Brooklyn the very same night of this live set on WFMU! They'll also be playing at Cake Shop on June 27, and Death By Audio on the 29th. Check out for complete tour info, and make sure you catch them in person and/or on the radio.

Nardwuar The Human Serviette Show
An interview with The Mcrackins who have released over 250 songs on 70 different records, with at least 60 different record labels! Yes The Mcrackins truly are "different" , and the most prolific band ever from the Pacific Northwest!  Doot doola doot doo... doot doo!

Pig Talk with Bronwyn C.
Bronwyn and Jay's special guest will be "Deep South," chief of the Thunk Tank Palmetto State News Bureau, who will be phoning in his report on the South Carolina political scene, including Alvin Greene, Nikki Haley, Governor Sanford, and that guy in the cemetery with the hooker. Politics! This week on Thunk Tank.

Eric Lindley (Keili fills in for Noah)
Tuesday, June 29th, 2010, Midnight - 3am
Beastin' The Airwaves! with Keilidh
Hauntingly melodic singer-songwriter Eric Lindley is the second coming of Skip Spence. Let's hope he too does not lose his mind so we can all benefit from his immense talent for a long time to come.

Krista Muir
Monday, June 28th, 2010, 9am - Noon
Bob W.'s show
Montreal's Krista Muir (the real person behind the Lederhosen Lucil alter-ego) will be performing a live acoustic set with her ukulele on the program. Bob and Krista will also sample, compare and contrast bagels from Montreal and NYC. Krista performs live at Like the Spice (224 Roebling Street, Brooklyn) on Sunday June 27th and Fontana's Bar (105 Eldridge Street, Manhattan) on Wednesday June 30th.

Ilhan Ersahin's Istanbul Sessions
Saturday, June 26th, 2010, 6pm - 9pm
Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg
The acclaimed New York based Turkish-rooted saxophonist, record producer and club owner (NuBlu) Ilhan Ersahin brings in his Turkish / international jazz / improv combo Istanbul Sessions for a Jersey City session live on WFMU. Named as a nod to the improv / jam sessions that are a staple of Istanbul's lively jazz scene, Istanbul Sessions is a supergroup featuring some of Turkey's most in-demand studio musicians and pop star accompanists. The radio show is a tune-up for their big gig at Central Park Summerstage on Sunday afternoon July 3 as part of the ambitious multi-artist multi-genre Turkish concert, Istanbulive II. (They'll also warm up for Summerstage with two East Village club dates - at NuBlu on June 25 and Joe's Pub on June 29.)

The Reigning Sound
Saturday, June 26th, 2010, 3pm - 6pm
on The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T

The Reigning Sound make their triumphant return to the Cherry Blossom Clinic on June 26th! Their most recent album "Love and Curses" on In The Red was Terre T's number one record of 2009 and their current lineup - with WFMU's own Dave Amels on organ! - brings the rock as only they can. The last time Reigning Sound came through Greg Cartwright was fighting a massive flu, so who knows what surprises are in store for this visit? Check them out on Jun 19th at Southpaw in Brooklyn and Jun 20th at Maxwell's in Hoboken, but be sure to tune in to hear another classic Reigning Sound set on the CBC!

Friday, June 25th, 2010, Midnight - 3am
on Wm. Berger presents My Castle of Quiet

KILT are the duo of Raven Chachon and Bob Bellerue, sometimes expanded to a trio with Sandor Finta (though not for this session.) The apparent discord in their longish-form improvisations peels back to reveal undercurrents of tone and petri-dish polyrhythmic dancing. Raven plays a contact-mic'd snare drum, and the pressure/release of the drum head, and the reaction of the snares, are employed to dazzling effect. Bob Bellerue, a master of guitar-feedback/drone manipulation (who visited the Castle earlier this year as Diablo), reacts and/or leads Raven's snare moans down alleys of power and introspection. The whole thing just sounds f***in' great, with sheets of screeching, organic drone, mid-plane explosions and haunted moments of fuzzy-blanket wrap. KILT, indeed. KILT it good and dead.

Sally Seltmann
Thursday, June 24th, 2010, Midnight - 3am
Night People
Tune into Night People for a live session with Australian songwriter Sally Seltmann. Perhaps best known for co-writing Feist's recent hit "1-2-3-4," Mrs. Seltmann should be and shall be better known for her own heartfelt piano based koala soft rock. Her new record "Heart That's Pounding" is a small party in the afternoon and the diary entry that follows.

Scrantapalooza with Das Black Milk and Fulmarine Petrels
Wednesday, June 23rd, 2010, 9pm - Midnight
on The Evan "Funk" Davies Show

Here's your opportunity to hear two of the top acts from Scranton PA, aka the Electric City! Das Black Milk is making a return visit to WFMU, and their dark catchy postpunk-meets-90s sound will be pleasing to the ears of Bauhaus, Mudhoney, Joy Division and/or Nothing People fans. Their new album, Talk To Your Body, is out now. Das Black Milk are bringing along their brother band Fulmarine Petrels, who feature a distorted lo-fi garage-punk sound that combines elements of, say, The Oblivians and Thee Oh Sees. Catch both these bands live on Wednesday the 23rd, and check out for more Scranton action, including free downloads!

Live at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater
Wednesday, June 23rd, 2010, 6pm - 7pm

The Music of Bill Dixon
Tuesday, June 22nd, 2010, 6am - 9am
The Long Rally with Scott McDowell
A good bulk of today's program will be dedicated to the music and odyssey of Bill Dixon, the great jazz trumpeter/bandleader/producer/educator/positive force who died on June 16th at the age of 84. Tune in for gems plucked from all corners of Dixon's discography in an effort to showcase the patience, reserve, invention, wit, and openheartedness of the his playing and composing.

Saturday, June 19th, 2010, 3pm - 6pm
on The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T

Don't miss the frantic rock n roll stylings of the A-Bones as they invade the WFMU studios performing selections from their latest long player "Not Now!" on Norton Records, (a Cherry Blossom Clinic Top Ten album of 2009) plus an array of their smash hits and surprises. Join the A-Bones on their Rocks Off Booze Cruise around Manhattan, Wed June 23rd, 7- 11PM on the Half Moon at Skyport Marina - 23rd and the FDR NYC.

Wednesday, June 16th, 2010, 9pm - Midnight
on The Evan "Funk" Davies Show

EFD kicks off his new time on the WFMU summer schedule with a bang - a headbang, that is. Diamondsnake began just a few short months ago, when Phil Costello (Satanicide, Valley Lodge) and Moby (Moby) began collaborating on some earworm-inducing glam-metal anthems. Their skull-crushing vision was fully realized with the addition of Tomato (Sound of Urchin) on attack drums, and Dave Hill (Valley Lodge, Walter Schreifels Band, funny person) who plays either bass or guitar, depending on what Moby feels like doing. (Dave mostly plays bass. Just sayin'.) The band has their first-ever gig on Thursday June 17 at the Highline Ballroom in NYC, but tune in the night before, Wednesday the 16th, to hear their world radio debut right here on WFMU! Even if you think you're not a fan of pop-metal you'll want to catch this set -- it's all the hooks and humor, with none of the hair. Don't miss it!

Sage Francis
Wednesday, June 16th, 2010, 8pm - 9pm
Nardwuar The Human Serviette Show
An interview with Providence, RI rapper Sage Francis! (Note: *new time* for the Nardwuar Show!) Doot doola doot doo... doot doo!

The Black Swans
Wednesday, June 16th, 2010, 6am - 9am
JA In The AM with John Allen
The Black Swans are a contemporary chicken eyed soul unit fronted by burgeoning storyteller Jerry DeCicca. Addressing role play, the anxieties of bed death, and loss and renewal, their odes reveal some high concept salvaging from Sid Selvedge to Sam Cooke to old gothic lady poets. They live in Columbus, Ohio. They have a new record Words Are Stupid on St. Ides/Secretly Canadian and now seems like a great time to play back this set they recorded for John Allen last year.

Jim Behrle
Tuesday, June 15th, 2010, 6pm - 7pm
Pig Talk with Bronwyn C.
This Tuesday, on the First Ever "Thunk Tank with Bronwyn and Jay" show, the Brainiacs welcome very special guest Jim Behrle. Although he's a well-known poet and former host of his own radio show on Boston's WBUR, Behrle is most infamous as the creator of "Kreepie Kats," the horrifying weekly comic strip that appeared on Gawker until the Authorities realized it was there. He's also a rabid sports fan, and will be joining Bronwyn and Jay for some Sportsy Talk this Tuesday at 6:00 PM on WFMU.

Mount Carmel
Tuesday, June 15th, 2010, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner

Mount Carmel are the Columbus, Ohio trio of Matthew Reed, Patrick Reed, and Kevin Shubak, serving up total blues-bleed of Groundhogs and Peter Green worship with zero ironic pretentions and throttling rock power (almost outboogying Endless Boogie at the Charleston in Brooklyn the other night as well!). Stopping by on the way out of Philly for Brian's show today for an afternoon slide into an evening at the Lakeside Lounge on Avenue B and 10th Street (early!) Simple, pure, rawk salvation at hand.

Puttin' on the Ritz
Monday, June 14th, 2010, Midnight - 3am
Miniature Minotaurs with Kurt Gottschalk
Putttin' on the Ritz began as a duo of TV producer, comedian and author BJ Rubin and drummer Kevin Shea (of such bands as Talibam!, Mostly Other People Do the Killing and People). They've swollen their ranks to include horns and keyboards, and have taken on the entirety of the Velvet Underground's "White Light / White Heat." They will perform their version of the album in the final hours before the minotaur retreats into its cave. June 14, 12-3 am.

Tinariwen Recorded Live at the Bell House
Saturday, June 12th, 2010, 6pm - 9pm
Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg
A captivating two hour set by the fabulous hypnotic, bluesy, electric Sahara Desert Tuareg guitar band Tinariwen recorded by our illustrious technical guru Irene Trudel live at the Bell House in Gowanus, Brooklyn on February 19, 2010. (Irene also recorded the opening band Fool's Gold; their set will be aired later this summer.) Tinariwen will be on the road again in North America this summer, including a big show on Saturday afternoon June 26 at Central Park Summerstage on an amazing bill with Syria's Omar Souleyman and American Africa-philes Toubab Krewe - plus a return engagement at the comparatively more intimate Bell House on Sunday night June 27.

Saturday, June 12th, 2010, 3pm - 6pm
on The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T

Tune into the Cherry Blossom Clinic to hear an amazing live session from the one and only Superchunk! The legendary kings of indie rock are back and ready to reclaim their crown with the release of "Majesty Shredding" on Merge Records, their first new album in nine years. The new album is a guitar-heavy return to the glory days of mid-90s Superchunk, and this live session - which was recorded during the Primavera Sound festival during WFMU's two-day remote back in May (but was unaired until now!) serves as an amazing preview. The album doesn't drop til September 14, so get your fix this Saturday on the Cherry Blossom Clinic!

4th Annual Graffiti Special
Friday, June 11th, 2010, 3pm - 6pm
Put The Needle On The Record with Billy Jam
WFMU's 4th Annual Graffiti Special will feature such artists as SNOW from New Jersey's FX crew, Meres-One of the TD4 crew & overseer of the unique 5 Pointz outdoor graffiti gallery in Long Island City, and Demerock of both the Wallnuts and Vicious Styles crews who recently, in association with Gentrified, produced the "Jersey Burns" DVD. Other guests will include graffiti photo-journalists Jim & Karla Murray (whose books Burning New York and Broken Windows comprehensively & colorfully documented a full decade of NYC graffiti history) and Florian Gaag - director of the Polish graffiti themed feature film "Wholetrain." Popaganda artist Ron English and Weird NJ contributer Wheeler Antabanez will stop by the show that will also feature a forgotten 1992 interview with legendary slain Bay Area graffiti artist Mike "DREAM" Francisco.

Watain's E
Thursday, June 10th, 2010, 11pm - 2am
on Diane's Kamikaze Fun Machine

Diane recently spoke with vocalist "E" from Swedish black metal band WATAIN. She'll be airing bits of the interview, which suffered unfortunate audio glitches in it, and airing tracks from their brand new record "Lawless Darkness". The full interview will be posted on WFMU's Beware of the Blog on Monday June 14th.

Wednesday, June 9th, 2010, 8pm - 11pm
on Wm. Berger presents My Castle of Quiet

OPPONENTS are, quite simply, one of a small handful of bands creating at the very forefront of contemporary electronics, making music that can't be easily defined (or dismissed) as "noise," "psychedelia" or "PE." It's all mushing together in gloriously appreciable ways, and OPPONENTS are a project currently operating at peak power. Their CDr on Obsolete Units, I Swarm With a Thousand Bees, is a killer-diller of analog whips, waves and pulsations, and heaven forbid, there's actually a melodic, or perhaps tonal, base to it all as well; beats too. OPPONENTS are early Kluster/Cluster through a grimy, Brooklyn-bloc filter. And as compelling as the new CD is, OPPONENTS' as-yet-unreleased jams continue to explore new territory that layers scary, modern, spiky punch atop Berlin-school throbs and mid-80s-style industrial maneuvers.

Sabbath Assembly
Wednesday, June 9th, 2010, 6am - 9am
JA In The AM with John Allen
"Restored to One" is a modern response to the musical activities of a cult known as The Process Church of the Final Judgment, who used music to spread their visions of Gnostic reconciliation in a time of cataclysmic change. Sabbath Assembly has re-charged the original hymns of The Process Church and worked them into moving renditions that unite the trinity of rock, psychedelic and gospel into one triumphant re-awakening. Sabbath Assembly features Jex Thoth (Jex Thoth) and Dave Nuss (NNCK). We'll hear some live tracks they recorded at FMU earlier this year, and Nuss and Thoth will discuss the project and preview songs from the record out later this month.

Experimental Cassette Culture Archaeology with Dais Records' Ryan Martin
Tuesday, June 8th, 2010, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner

Brian is joined today by Ryan Martin of Dais Records/York Factory Complaint to dig out dusty boxes of found tapes old and new, discussing cassette culture starting in the late '70s post-industrial / synth realm and going through the '80s and '90s up until the deluged tape scene today. Playing avant Fluxus cassettes, artist recordings, tape manipulations, unheard dialogue, drone noise and warped field recordings. Things are going to get weird.
