on Irwin Chusid

This Wednesday at 1:00 pm, Irwin welcomes Tom Gleisner, co-author of the Jetlag Travel Guide to Molvania, published in the US by Overlook Press. Molvania is a little cared-about eastern European republic affectionately known as "a land untouched by modern dentistry." Gleisner, who just returned from his 17th visit to Molvania, will discuss that nation's infectious diseases, pickpocket culture, and linguistic use of the triple-negative. Formerly a Soviet bloc country, Molvania was liberated in 1982 when the famous Lutenblag Wall collapsed -- not from democratic reform, but from shoddy construction.


Simon Finn

on
Choking On Cufflinks with Michael Goodstein
Simon Finn's 1970 opus 'Pass the Distance' was a long whispered relic of dark, odd, folk music featuring unique production and dark atmosphere. After it's reputation grew through a series of bootlegs, it has finally seen a legitimate reissue on Current 93's Dutro label this year. Mr. Finn stopped by WFMU in August to record a few songs and discuss "Pass the Distance," and the events that led to it's rediscovery.


Neil Innes

Monday, September 27th, 2004, 3pm - 6pm
on
Irene Trudel's show
Dark folk for the new Milennium is what Sharron Kraus does best. Her latest, "Songs of Love and Loss" falls perfectly into the dark hole of sweet melancholia. Sharron's been hanging out with bands Black Forest/Black Sea and Espers, and is about to embark on a European tour with Fursaxa. She's been snagged with guitar and banjo in hand, recorded live in all her dark glory for WFMU. 4 PM.

on Mike L.'s show

A sonic fury that demands reckoning with, Newark New Jersey's Dälek pay their second visit to WFMU, bringing with them an arsenal of material that'll challenge even the most extreme interpretations of experimental hip-hop. Dark lyrics, beats of planet-shattering proportions, and a live show that knows no equal -- These gentlemen have consistently obliterated with every step up to the plate. They'll be unveiling a slew of new material tonight, to be heard on their upcoming 2nd album for Ipecac Records, as well as discussing everything from their inception in the mid-90s to their recent collaborative effort with Krautrock legends Faust. Sure to be one for the ages!

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.


Vitamin-D
Monday, September 20th, 2004, 3pm - 6pm
on Irene Trudel's show

Bostonian by birth, Virginian by upbringing, Brooklynite by choice, Dennis Cronin has taken a long sidecar through the Nashville recording scene to make his musical home in NYC with a new pop project, Vitamin-D, and a gem-laden album called, "Build Another." 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.


LSD March
Monday, September 20th, 2004, Midnight - 3am
on
Janitor From Mars with R. Lim
Rising stars of the Japanese underground, LSD March are true inheritors to both the dark lysergic legacy of Rallizes Denudes and the primitive drone rock of early Spacemen 3. Long unknown outside of Japan, they recently embarked on their first US tour and blew minds with their explosive psychedelic fury. The Janitor From Mars is pleased to present this exclusive radio session, recorded in the WFMU studios in August.


Mike Shiflet

"Southern September" goes out like a lion with the roar of Memphis' Lost Sounds! Alicja Trout (ex-Clears) and Jay Lindsey (ex-Reatards) return, tearing thru a set of incredible, intense, dark, crazy keyboard-driven punk garage. Actually they say they play Black Wave which is a cross between black metal and new-wave!! These guys may be dark but they are also funny as hell. Get their new limited, vinyl only EP Future Touch, out now, and watch for their new self-titled full-length on In The Red next month!

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.

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
Monday, September 13th, 2004, 11pm - 2am
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.

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.)

Find out why they're the South's... no, AMERICA's, best rock band! Watch out for their new album of rarities and outtakes, Home For Orphans, coming out this month.

The Small Potatoes
Thursday, September 9th, 2004, 8pm - 11pm
on
Music To Spazz By with Dave the Spazz
The Small Potatoes are a female-fronted band who play mostly covers of 50's and 60's country and a little bit of rockabilly. Take favorites and obscurities from Rose Maddox, Jean Shepard, Charlene Arthur, Buddy Holly, Ernie Chaffin, and many more, add one or two originals, throw in a dash of old-fashioned Yankee incompetence, stir in some glorious chicken-pickin' lead guitar and there you have the Small Potatoes. They opened for Wanda Jackson once, but they mostly play at crummy dives for 9 or 10 of their friends. A must for those who dislike between-song patter, which is precluded by the Small Potatoes' crippling stage fright. The Small Potatoes will be joined on one or two songs by Sarah Hawker of the Lonesome Sisters.

3puen
Monday, September 6th, 2004, 11pm - 2am
on Choking On Cufflinks with Michael Goodstein

3puen (pronounced "Pyoon", the "3" is silent) have been toiling away in the East Village with their unique, strange and wonderful electro-pop for a few years now, striking it big on WFMU last year with their left-field pop hit "Sugar Cookie." Imagine Fad Gadget or DAF fronted by divas with a penchant for trashy 70s movie dialogue and bizarre theatrics. The group, consisting of Flloyd, Patti Lu3puen, Brian Damage, Ingrid ForNow, and Otis Von Darling will pay a visit to Choking With Cufflinks to perform songs from their new EP, which they're only selling in a deli.

From the East Coast to the West, America to Africa, all throughout Europe and Asia, Naughty By Nature continued snatching up new fans by the dozens. Tonight Noah will chat with New Jersey native Treach about hip-hop and community as well as playing classic Naughty cuts and some unheard gems!

Give The Drummer Some with Doug Schulkind
Florida is one of just a handful of states that permanently disenfranchises anyone convicted of felony. Some say this law -- enacted during reconstuction when freed slaves first got the right to vote -- disproportionally affects the African American community, and could help determine the outcome of the coming presidential election. For an in-depth discussion of Florida's problematic law and its looming implications, tune in to "Give the Drummer Some," this Friday for an interview with voting rights expert Jessie Allen. She is associate counsel for the Brennan Center for Justice, and is the lead attorney in Johnson v.

You've seen his sordid legacy depicted on our home page for years. Courtney T. Edison, a.k.a. The Old Codger, returns to the WFMU airwaves for the first time since 2000, filling in for Laura Cantrell on the Radio Thrift Shop. Many think he's fictitious, nothing more than a Drew Friedman caricature. But the Codger is real. Disbelieve your own ears. He plays 78 rpm records "like they're goin' out of style," and he's "got shoes older than you." Heavy rotation for Louis Jordan, Ukulele Ike and Sophie Tucker -- and no Big Bands! Forget NEW AGE music -- the Codger plays OLD AGE music. Live with it, because as the Codge proclaims, if you can't take it with you, HE'S NOT GOING!

Aki Onda
Sunday, August 15th, 2004, 10pm - Midnight
on Stochastic Hit Parade / A440 with Bethany Ryker

Before the CD, cassettes reigned supreme. You remember the way they grew to fame, as people popped them into car stereos and ambled about listening to Walkmans. The mix tape was born. But don¹t think the cassette is a mere casualty of the 80s. Aki Onda doesn¹t. He¹s never without a hand-held recorder, picking up odd noise, fragments of conversation and distant murmurs. Then he lets loose. Dust off your tape deck for this one.

Greek music that you probably won't be hearing at the Olympics. And certainly won't be hearing on Olympic TV coverage. Guest-DJ George Sempepos of the visionary late 80s Greek roots-rock-dance band Annabouboula smashes stereotypes and busts those ancient Greek restaurant music myths by unearthing Greek music, new and old, that digs the roots in interesting and innovative ways. And, did you know that there are Greek versions of Bollywood songs? George knows...
