On the verge of international fame, he instead became one of the first prominent artists to die of AIDS.

Justin is joined by Sam Fogarino (of Interpol) and Sean 'Grasshopper' Mackowiack (of Mercury Rev). Blending glockenspiels and trumpets, howling guitar drones and gentle piano, the live incarnation, a dense and boisterous chamber pop ensemble, is quickly becoming NYC's most whispered about 'conversion experience'.

Irene Trudel's show
What better way is there to kick off the new year than with musicians who are clearly out of their minds? Gutbucket sends you on a roller-coaster of of punk jazz-rock fusion, never losing their groove on the ride. It's been several years since Gutbucket has played on Irene's program and in that time they've toured Europe countless times, released a second album, and have an upcoming gig at Joe's Pub. Plus, Ken, Paul, Ty and Eric will also be bringing their favorite CDs to air in between bouts of musical lunacy.

Coffee Break For Heroes & Villains with Noah
Hailed as "abstract hip-hop's next big thing" (Epitonic), Brooklyn-based producer Shakeyface is a talented creative force bubbling just under the surface. Allmusic.com describes his songs as "adventurous soundscapes" with "thick, dirty beats". An EP entitled "Puddle Jumping During A Monsoon" on Belgium's Quatermass label and several appearances on compilations can all be found in his growing discography. Shakeyface also DJ's on the regular, serving up a special Shakey blend of crunked-up hip-hop, deep funk, leftfield electronics and Shakeyface originals. Join Shakeyface and Noah as they throw down the last Coffee Break For Heroes & Villians show of 2004!
