Low + Josef Van Wissem
Monday, December 22nd, 2003, 3pm - 6pm
on
Irene Trudel's show
These forbears of the "slowcore" musical movement are masters of restraint, beautifying their sound with a lack of frills. In typical fashion, they've released a holiday album entitled, "Christmas," conveying satisfyingly simple messages over their languidly lush delivery. Two-thirds of the ensemble (Mimi and Alan) present a live set of their holiday songs for WFMU.

Also on the program, Josef Van Wissem performs tunes from the 1600's through the present on a beautiful reproduction 10-string Renaissance lute. Josef's music is beautifully sonorous and minimalistic, perfect for inducing a trance-like barrier against all the Christmas craziness.

Kingface -- Recorded live @ the 9:30 Club in 1988
Tuesday, December 16th, 2003, 9am - Noon
on
Mike L.'s show
One of the more unusual bands to emerge from the 1980s punk rock scene in Washington DC, Kingface had a great musical kinship with early Van Halen and the classic Marshall Boogie acts of the 70s, yet they played right alongside hardcore-influenced bands like Beefeater, Soulside, and Fugazi. They released two of the most rollicking, fist-in-the-air ROCK EPs of the era and appeared on Dischord Records' seminal State of the Union compilation before breaking up. Mike has acquired an incredible live-off-the-board recording of Kingface performing at DC's legendary 9:30 Club, and with the band's blessing, will air the show in its' entirety. 100% guaranteed to kick you where it counts!

on
Janitor From Mars with R. Lim
Tune in for an exclusive live set from Tokyo's Miminokoto, recorded during their head-turning, barn-burning zig-zag through the United States.

Wednesday, December 10th, 2003, 11pm - 2am
on
Advanced D & D with Donna Summer
Nathan Michel's last album, "Dear Bicycle" (Tigerbeat6), is a breathtakingly beautiful pop album made with a computer, fractured keyboards, slide whistles, weird samples and slide guitar. Nathan was kind enough to stop by and record a new song which will debut here on A D&D, and then hangs out and talks about his new album, being a Ph.D. candidate in composition (at Princeton no less), and his love for 70's pop rock.

Rosie Thomas
Monday, December 8th, 2003, 3pm - 6pm
on
Irene Trudel's show
Rosie's got a knack for laying bare the contradictions of a close but divorced family life in song, using her gorgeous voice and beautiful piano and acoustic guitar-laden melodies. In startling contrast, as an interviewee she's a bit of a sweet goof-ball. On her second album, "Only with Laughter Can You Win", Rosie's got the whole family participating in the music, along with tasty string arrangements. When Ms. Thomas came through town, she recorded a charming set and interview for us at WFMU.

on
Janitor From Mars with R. Lim
Join us for an exclusive live presentation from Plastic Crimewave Sound, recorded at WFMU while on tour in late November.

The live set will be broadcast at 8:00AM.


Semiautomatic

Harris Newman
Thursday, December 4th, 2003, 9am - Noon
on
Inner Ear Detour with David
It is rare to hear a musician who can create emotional textures as rich and compelling as Montreal-based guitarist Harris Newman.

John Sheehan
Monday, December 1st, 2003, 3pm - 6pm
on
Irene Trudel's show
This masterful fingerstyle guitarist has been compared to the likes of Leo Kottke, John Renbourne, and Michael Hedges. John's equally at home with the traditions of European classical and American contemporary instrumental guitar styles, he's equally adept at lute and banjo, and he takes a tongue-in-cheek view of the suburban life in his vocal numbers. He is also the figurehead of the New Jersey Fingerstyle Alliance (NJFA), a growing group of professional and amateur musicians sharing their knowledge and appreciation for eclectic fingerstyle guitar.

Hear them on Thomas Edison's Attic this evening.

Or maybe we'll just all say "panties" and giggle.


Alvaro
Tuesday, November 18th, 2003, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

Chilean singer/songwriter composer Alvaro Pena-Rojas moved to London in the early 1970's and hooked up with pre-Clash Joe Strummer in the 101-ers, but then spent most of the punk and post-punk area sculpting an incredible catalog of 18 albums and singles, including one of the strangest albums of all time, 1977's "Drinking My Own Sperm". Alvaro's music is uncompromising and passionate, blending everything from Eno-esque, yet distinctly Latin-tinged pop experimentalism to piano composition to radical folk poetry. His unique approach to the flute on some of his records has also saddled him with the tag "The Chilean with the Singing Nose." He lives in Germany now, but visits WFMU today in a rare New York appearance.

These guys rarely venture north of the Mason-Dixon line, so it's a real treat to have them play live on the Cherry Blossom Clinic! Singer Ronnie Ramada packs up his capes, crowns and bandmates and delivers songs that sound like a cross between the 13th Floor Elevators and the Amboy Dukes! All while maintaining this hi-larious conceited/pampered persona. Don't miss this session!

The Shemps
Thursday, November 13th, 2003, 11pm - 2am
on
Pat Duncan's show
The Shemps seem to be able to appeal to the 30+ crowd of beer sitting garage-rock geezers while still being inspirational to malt liquor guzzling, phlegmspitting punk teenagers. Originally formed with WFMU DJ Dave The Spazz on vocals,Dave Squeaky Wilentz onSizzling Schezwan Guitar, andMRR zinester Bill Florio on Bass.In mid 2001 Dave handed over frontman tasks to well (dis)liked (MILHOUSE?INDECISION) troublemaker Artie Phillie. Guitars are now filled in with the addition of Neil Halpin (HIBACHI JOE) and the slick beats of Jimmy James Hass (DICK ARMY/JUNIOR HIGH).The soundtrack at any SHEMPS show can result anywhere from a teenage girl dance party to afull on Mexican Food riot, resulting in broken limbs.In any case it's always catchy, funny and entertaining if you don't run away crying.

on
Inner Ear Detour with David
The sweaty, sleazy, searing soul-punk of John Wilkes Booze evokes fantasies of the Dirtbombs merging with the Gizmos, fronted by Marc Bolan. The band's points of reference are wide (Yoko Ono, Melvin Van Peebles, Albert Ayler), but when their amps get cranked up to 11, be prepared for a marvelous electrical shock of goopy sleaze.
