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. Strong material, crazy dual lead guitars, the hooks of power pop, a variety of tempos and a cohesiveness courtesy of three years of hard touring make the Blackouts one of the best underground bands in America. Their second album, "Living in Blue," is one of the year's best.

on Irene Trudel's show

From the start, Rebecca Martin's been a unique voice in the jazz/folk scene, starting out as a cohort of Jesse Harris in the combo Once Blue. But she's not easy to catagorize, especially on the newly released People Behave Like Ballads, a genre-bending collection that will come as no surprise to Rebecca's fans. Tune in at 4 PM for some selections performed live in WFMU's studios/


Jack Rose

on
Janitor From Mars with R. Lim
Tune in for some solo lap-steel guitar from Pelt's Jack Rose, who recently stopped by the station to play a set of pre-war Blues and Raga-tinged guitar improvisations. From spine-tingling drones to intricate syncopations, the man they call Doctor Ragtime has the cure for what ails you.


Golem
Saturday, November 20th, 2004, 8pm - 11pm
on
Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg
With klezmer roots and a rock and roll heart, New York based Golem radically reinterprets old Yiddish chestnuts.

The band drops by for a live set to celebrate the release of its new CD, "Homesick Songs."


X-Wife
Saturday, November 20th, 2004, 3pm - 6pm
on The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T

The Cherry Blossom Clinic is thrilled to welcome its second musical guest from Portugal! This 3-piece outfit has a raw post-punk sound driven by crunchy and distorted guitars, militant analog vintage drum-machines, and dirty synthesizers. Their sound calls to mind Gang of Four, Clinic and the Liars. Don't miss this session, and see them live the next night at Sin-e!


Listener Matt Fiveash spins the platters that matter

No Things are an intriguingly dark and powerful new force in the New York music scene.

Ghost
Monday, November 15th, 2004, Midnight - 3am
on
Janitor From Mars with R. Lim
While Ghost's studio albums show how their unique psychedelic folk vision has changed over the years, it is their no-holds-barred live shows which have earned them their reputation as one of today's best psychedelic rock groups. The Janitor From Mars is honored to broadcast the New York show from Ghost's recent tour in support of their ambitious new album, Hypnotic Underworld.


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
Naïm 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 Naïm 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. Naïm added vocals to the blend for this live set he recorded on a recent swing through NYC. 4 PM.

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

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.

NYC's disturbingly cult-like, circus-related, Halloween-tent-revival orchestra The World/Inferno Friendship Society perform red-eyed soul show tunes for the swarming punk rock masses. But rest assured, they're not a simple rock band with a horn section; it's a fully-integrated orchestra of young men and women writing songs of the wine, freedoms, and foibles which make life more than waking up and going to work every day. Nine pieces -2 drummers, 4 horns, 2 guitars, way too many teeth, a piano, and yes, an accordion -- all offering you a standing invitation to Brooklyn's neverending Halloween.

By comparision, last week's marathon 180 1-minute songs in 3 hours sounded like an Emerson, Lake and Palmer concert.

Oxbow
Tuesday, October 26th, 2004, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

The music of San Francisco's Oxbow is a downright disturbing blend of eerie ambient drones, falling-down-the-stairs mathrock, and crushing, twisted blues all capped off with the churning, maniacal vocals of Eugene Robinson. Their live shows have been legend, full of bareboned catharsis, and even some harrowing physical moments with audience members (it should be noted that Eugene is a bonafide bodybuilder and contributor to Grappling Magazine). Through the years they've recorded with Lydia Lunch, Marianne Faithfull, and the Rova Saxophone Quartet, and are in town for a rare date at North Six in Brooklyn. We're excited to have Eugene and guitarist Niko Wenner stop by for a stripped-down electric set on the air this afternoon.

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.

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.

Songs From A Random House
Monday, October 11th, 2004, 3pm - 6pm
on
Irene Trudel's show
Co-founded by Steven Swartz and Alan Drogin, Songs From A Random House is not your usual electric guitar-based swing combo. They eschew those instruments in favor of electric-ukuleles/ viola/ upright bass/ percussion/and voice. The band's songs, composed by Swartz and arranged by the group, are by turns passionate and cool, mysterious and funny. The newest Songs From A Random House disc, 'Listen,' was released in August and they drop by at 4 PM to swing the WFMU studios.

She'll drop by from 8-9 to fill us in on what's happening and play music by the participants - some klezmer, like her band and a couple of Klezmatics alumni - and some not so klezmer (like Gary Lucas' Gods and Monsters).
