Quebecois anarchist postpunks Les Georges Leningrad may be the most interesting band currently practicing in that umbrella genre known as "postpunk."

Thursday, October 14th, 2004, 11pm - 2am

Since 1997, The Riverboat Gamblers have made a name for themselves with their rowdy and unique live shows. The California punk label Gearhead Records quickly took notice, and subsequently released the band's "Something To Crow About" LP. The intensity of the Gamblers live show has caused broken teeth, lacerated body parts, and thousands of dollars in medical bills, but all in the name of fun, and part of what's given the them such a fanatical following. Tune in for a live set from some of America's more unusual media darlings of late.

on Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock

Don't be afraid just because Monica Lewinsky is a fan. Palomar return to WFMU in support of their great new album "The Revenge of Palomar." Two years ago, the New York Times said of the band: "Whimsy and sinew coexist nicely in the lean, peppy pop rock of Palomar, a three-woman, one-man band whose songs jump from blithe choruses to wiry guitar patterns to hefty distortion, all at the service of the lyrics' articulate ambivalence."

Who knows what that means.

on
Jonesville Station

Steve Mackay and the Radon Ensemble
Tuesday, October 5th, 2004, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

Saxophonist Steve Mackay has been publicly worshipped by James Chance, and with good reason: this is the guy who played on the Stooges' 1970 Funhouse record, and is again back on the road destroying concert audiences with Iggy and company. Steve's activities number greatly though: he's performed with the late great Snakefinger, backed the Violent Femmes, and as of the last few years has hooked up with various cosmic travellers of the illustrious Radon experimental label with fiery free-rock improvisations. Steve is hitting town for a bill with Hawkwind's Nik Turner at Tonic on October 1st, and visits the WFMU studios for an afternoon of free-jazz psychedelic blowout, joined by a crew that includes Ed and Vinny from Temple of Bon Matin.

To Live and Shave in L.A.
Tuesday, September 21st, 2004, 3pm - 6pm
on
Brian Turner's show
Sonic manipulator Tom Smith plugs into the inner bulb of his psyche and spews more personality into noise rock than most (and "rock" is a definite factor in this equation.) The years-in-the-making 2LP opus "The 18th Century Wigmaker in Williamsburg" is a total masterpiece of cut-up madness, demented drum-and-bass, dub destruction, vocal exorcisms, and more sludge pouring into your ears than you can comprehend. What may be deemed impenetrable at first will surely and inevitably get Tom recognized as this millenium's true Disco Diva. This past March saw a reunited TLASILA going ballistic at the Brooklyn No Fun freakfest; today the gang plays on Brian's show and includes Mark Morgan from Sightings, Don Fleming, Rat Bastard, Andrew WK, and Ben Wolcott.

Dennis and his trumpet's musical travels have included stints with Lambchop, Vic Chesnutt, Calexico, Willard Grant Conspiracy, Josh Rouse, and Ladybug Transistor. He's equally comfortable on his guitar as he is in Classical music's orbit. While looking for new creative challenges, Cronin and his brother launched Boston's Mount Hood Classical Music Series. These days Dennis' heart is in Vitamin-D, which he brings to WFMU for a live set at 4 PM.

Afri Rampo
Tuesday, September 14th, 2004, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

Hailing from Osaka, Afri Rampo are Oni (guitar/vocal) and Pika (drum/vocal), two g-string and pastie-clad women who describe themselves as "pussycats kicking naked soul rock". Last summer in Los Angeles they were seemingly set to charm an audience's pants off but instead let loose a barrage comparable to the Boredoms or Mars, bludgeoning 'em all like seals. Their first trip to the East Coast finds them recording an LP for the Tzadik label, playing a gig with Lightning Bolt, and hopefully getting past Dubyapalooza to make it out to the WFMU studios.


The Gris Gris (pronounced the Gree Gree)
Tuesday, September 14th, 2004, Noon - 3pm
on
Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock
These psych rockers from Oakland, California start with a primitive Velvet Underground beat, distorted vocals and guitars, and twist things further and further until they are WAY out. Their self-titled debut album on Birdman is one of the year's best. Tune in to find out why.


The Cause Co-motion

on
Choking On Cufflinks with Michael Goodstein
Brooklyn shambolic four-piece heavily inspired by C-86 and UK DIY Punk/Pop from veterans of the unheralded mid 90's east coast DIY Pop scene. Think the Television Personalities, the Good Vibrations label, the Bartlebees, etc. Eleven songs. Seventeen minutes.

Jutok Kaneko and Koji Shimura
Monday, September 13th, 2004, Midnight - 3am
on
Janitor From Mars with R. Lim
Jutok Kaneko has been perfecting his freewheeling psychedelic guitar style since 1978, when he founded the legendary Sabbathesque power trio Kousokuya. More recently, Kaneko has been collaborating with such like-minded musicians as Miminokoto's drummer, Koji Shimura. While on tour together in early August, they stopped by the station to record a bracing free-rock duet of ecstatic feedback squall and whirlwind drum improvisations.


"Radio Ping-Pong" with BBC Radio London DJ Charlie Gillett
Sunday, September 12th, 2004, 7pm - 10pm
on
Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg
Charlie Gillett engages Rob in a session of what he calls "radio ping-pong". A recurring feature of Charlie's radio show, the concept is simple but the results utterly unpredictable: Charlie invites a guest DJ, each pulls a stack of records - anything at all - without consulting the other; and the two DJs bounce tracks back and forth.

Charlie Gillett is author of the landmark study of early rock and roll, "The Sound of the City." And he's a longtime radio DJ in the UK (his show helped launch the career of Dire Straits among others.) He is now one of the most influential figures on the 'world music' scene in the UK, spinning world and roots music on his weekly BBC Radio London program, and producing an annual 2-CD global music survey. This year's CD collection is entitled "World 2004" (Wrasse Records.)
