But at 10pm, we'll hear the Tate festival ringleader, audio/visual artist Christian Marclay taking on his own Christmas LP collection as recorded at the Tate Modern in London on December 10th.

on Irene Trudel's show

Finnish musician, Es., otherwise known as Sami Snpkkil, 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.

Wednesday, December 15th, 2004, 2am - 6am
on Coffee Break For Heroes & Villains with Noah

El-P is one of today's most important and influential figures in music. His groundbreaking production has pushed the envelope on creativity and put fear in the lazy.

on
Irene Trudel's show
Featuring Gary Lucas, arranged and conducted by Phillip Johnston - As Phillip Johnston says on his webpage "From the first concert of Captain Beefheart & his Magic Band that I heard (Ungano's Ritz Theater, in Staten Island) I was hooked, and I followed them somewhat fanatically for years... Now for the first time, after almost 30 years, having done re-arrangements and deconstructions of Raymond Scott, Billy Strayhorn, Thelonious Monk, Steve Lacy, Herbie Nichols, and others, with my groups The Microscopic Septet & Big Trouble, I've gotten together with my friend Gary Lucas, to do something with the music of Captain Beefheart." The ensemble's repertoire (which is still growing) is drawn from the entire range of Beefheartiana, from 'Safe As Milk' through 'Ice Cream For Crow', (and concentrating heavily on 'Troutmaskreplica'.) Fast 'n' Bulbous is about to release an album, and to celebrate it, they're playing a live set on WFMU at 4 PM/

on
Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg
An alumnus of the legendary Super Rail Band (where he replaced Salif Keita as vocalist), Guinean-born Mory Kante was one of the first artists to successfully fuse African roots music and dancefloor beats: His "Yeke Yeke" was a global hit in the eighties. The song still has legs; it was recently featured in Leonardo DiCaprio's film 'The Beach'. Though he's famous for electrifying roots music, Kante's latest CD entitled "Sabou" (on Riverboat Records / World Music Network) is all-acoustic. He'll give us the story behind the songs and tell us why he pulled the plug.

on
Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg
Gilles Peterson really wanted to be on the radio when he was a kid - so he rigged up a transmitter in his backyard (with the help of his dad) and took listener requests at a neighborhood payphone. His perseverence paid off; now he's a DJ on BBC Radio One (where he once followed John Peel), a globetrotting club DJ, record producer and label honcho (Talkin' Loud). Associated with the rise of "acid jazz" but a man of many genres, Gilles has compiled a new double-CD of Brazilian music old and new entitled "Gilles Peterson in Brazil" on Ether Records.

Thursday, December 2nd, 2004, 11pm - 2am

The Blackouts
Tuesday, November 23rd, 2004, Noon - 3pm
on Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock

Some have called this rocking quartet from Champaign, Illinois, a garage band, but that's just a starting point.

Golem
Saturday, November 20th, 2004, 8pm - 11pm
on
Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg

The Cherry Blossom Clinic is thrilled to welcome its second musical guest from Portugal!

Monday, November 15th, 2004, Midnight - 3am
on

A peek into the future of world music
Saturday, November 13th, 2004, 8pm - 11pm
on
Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg
In Europe there's actually a "world music industry" (for better or worse) and WOMEX, held in Europe every October, is the world music equivalent of CMJ (again, for better or worse.) Showcases, seminars, shmoozing, shilling, and whatever else goes on at these affairs. A lot of world musicky artists first showcase at WOMEX, then tour Europe, and THEN tour the U.S. a year or two later. So for us Americans WOMEX is a sneak peek into the future.

WFMU DJ Rob Weisberg attended this year's WOMEX in Germany as did journalists Anastasia Tsioulcas [*pronounced SOOL-KUS*] (Billboard Magazine) and Tom Pryor (Global Rhythm Magazine). They'll talk about the experience, and play new music discovered there.


TWO BANDS: Boyskout and Nagg
Saturday, November 13th, 2004, 3pm - 6pm
on
The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T
This week the Cherry Blossom Clinic brings you not one, but two HOT bands coming straight outta San Francisco and both bands are led by tough-as-nails women! Boyskout play songs from their debut album 'School of Etiquette'. They have a subversive yet fun New Wave-influenced sound that calls to mind Martha & the Muffins and Siouxsie. Or The Cars, if they were tough and lesbians from San Francisco!

Nagg also play selections from their self-titled debut album. These guys play a wonderful raucous blend of punk & glam calling to mind bands like Suzi Quatro, the Runaways, and AC/DC!

Naïm Amor
Monday, November 8th, 2004, 3pm - 6pm
on
Irene Trudel's show
Nam Amor made a fateful decision in 1997 to relocate from his native Paris, France to Tucson, Arizona. There, he immediately found fertile ground there for his "avant-French pop" with his now defunkt Amor Belhom Duo, and found like minds for collaboration in Howe Gelb, Joey Burns and John Convertino of Calexico, all of whom Nam has performed, composed, and recorded with. Amor's latest is "SOUNDTRACKS, Volume II", out on OWOM records blends jazz and cocktail kitsch with lonesome guitar licks. Nam added vocals to the blend for this live set he recorded on a recent swing through NYC. 4 PM.

Brooklyn-based Jukeboxer's Noah Wells and Amy Jones will be Bob W.'s guests on Friday Nov. 5, 2004 between 3pm and 4pm as he fills in for Small Change. They will chat about archeology, hockey, and maybe even music, too, and feature a few tracks from their new album "In the Food Chain," hailed as going beyond Folktronica's usual acoustic guitar and laptop accoutrements, expertly marrying a plethora of electronic and oldfangled sounds. They might even play some live-recorded songs from their show at the Knitting Factory from November 3rd.


The Tiger Lillies
Wednesday, November 3rd, 2004, Noon - 3pm

They sing pleasant little songs about murder, prostitution, arson, and godless decadence. On Wednesday, November 3, gather your family around the radio hearth for a wholesome live performance by the Tiger Lillies. The festivities begin at 12:30 pm, on Irwin's program. The Tiger Lillies' new album is called "Punch and Judy," and it's either brilliant entertainment or yet another sign of impending societal collapse. They play, you decide.

on Irwin Chusid

Producer/Remixer/DJ Mark Vidler of Go Home Productions will present new mash-ups recorded especially for WFMU on Irwin's program at 2 PM. Vidler's audio alchemy has grafted together Christina Aguilera and The Strokes, The Beach Boys and Barry White, The Sex Pistols and Madonna, and dozens of other musicians who have never met in a studio but now share collaborative works. Tune in and spend an hour with the king of bootleg mash-ups. (Gender Bias will be pre-empted that day.)
