Andrew Horn, writer/director of "The Nomi Song"
Friday, February 4th, 2005, 8pm - 11pm
on Pseu Braun

Andrew Horn talks about his film "The Nomi Song" opening February 4 in both New York and Los Angeles. The subject of the film, Klaus Nomi, looked like an alien and sang like a diva. He was a cult figure in the New Wave Underground who sang pop music like opera and brought opera to club audiences. On the verge of international fame, he instead became one of the first prominent artists to die of AIDS. Still unforgettable 20 years later, Klaus Nomi's story is finally told onscreen through rare club footage and interviews with scene-makers of the time, giving this "absolute outsider" his due as a great artist.

on
Nickel and Dime Radio with $mall ¢hange
33hz are on some vintage white boy funk/pop tip -- not Small Change's usual steeze mind you, but they pull it off really really well. From Zapp to Loose Ends to Eddie Kendricks to George Michael (think 'Everything She Wants' as opposed to 'Wham Rap'), these folks whip it all together into their very catchy original sound, complete with multiple keyboards and a talkbox.

While most rappers live in a world of fantasy, R.A. is one of the few MC's that can guarantee his rhymes are real life, as sick as they might sound.

Tune in as the biggest threat to the music industry swings by to play tracks off his latest release on Nature Sounds, talk shop, and go toe to toe with Noah in the ring!

The Silent League
Monday, January 10th, 2005, 3pm - 6pm
on
Irene Trudel's show
This Brooklyn-based orchestral pop band originated as the solo identity of former Mercury Rev singer & keyboardist Justin Russo in the late nineties. Russo secretly stole each available moment in his former band's busy tour schedule to write and record his own fragile and epic LP, "The Orchestra, Sadly, Has Refused". 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'. The band will perform at 4 PM.

on
Advanced D & D with Donna Summer
NYC's own Drop The Lime is like a horrible Godzilla, eating lazerbeams, and breakcore beats completely re-invented and totally slammin'. That would be enough, normally, but Drop The Lime sings like a trashy little bird in leather pants. He has turned the underground on it's ear, and is in the process of making a BIG name for himself internationally. He'll be doing a live set, and hangin out on Advanced D&D. Don't miss it!

Es., with Black Forest/Black Sea
Monday, December 20th, 2004, 3pm - 6pm

Finnish musician, Es., otherwise known as Sami Sänpäkkilä, says of his music, "..the greatest moments I usually find while listening to music with headphones in bed at night. The music being something like ambient or noise or click/scratch looped stuff or just something that usually expresses a feeling of being alone and that of melancholy or sadness." Sami says the music doesn't make him feel that way but rather it sends him in a direction of hope and kindness. The new Es album, "Sateenkaarisuudelma," will be available in January 2005 through Fonal Records and he tours with Jeffrey Alexander and Miriam Goldberg of Black Forest/Black Sea and Shary Boyle, bringing a live set to WFMU at 4 PM.
