Lifter Puller
Monday, August 5th, 2002, Midnight - 3am
on
Mosurock with Doug M.
Throughout the mid-90s, Minneapolis's Lifter Puller shook up bars and boomboxes all over the nation with their lurid tales of nightlife, its excesses, and the morning after. They did so with a quirky authority that transcended their bleachy indie-rock contemporaries and pierced the Springsteen layer of lyrical storytelling set to driving, anthemic rock. The band broke up in 2000 but have reunited to play one of the last shows ever at NYC rock haven Brownie's. Mosurock is proud to welcome a staple of his program for one last live hurrah as they play songs from throughout their seven-year career. Catch Lifter Puller at Brownies on August 1st, and look for a double-CD retrospective of their music, entitled Soft Rock, in stores this fall.

Busy Doing Nothing with Charlie
On tour from Finland, Aavikko drop by to play a set of instrumental semi-psychedelic carny music -- in the spirit of 60's Spaghetti-westerns -- with Slavic pop melodies and a buzzy hard-noise edge. Manic twin Casio players crank out the catchy tunes, while their 'human metronome' propels the madness with pseudo-disco syncopations and hyperactive breakbeats. Playing at the Knitting Factory the same night.

on The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T

New York's own Galvanized bring their electro-punk groove to the Cherry Blossom Clinic! Frontwoman Dahlia's cool as ice, disaffected vocals are a sharp counterpoint to the new wavish punk- influenced sounds of the band.

on
Brian Turner's show
Temple of Bon Matin are Pennsylvania's most mind-altering exports since Tastykakes; a dense gooey sound stew of what seems like Art Blakey playing with Tibetans who want to sound like a cross between Hawkwind, Judas Priest, and the more hallucinatory moments of Red Crayola or the Mothers of Invention. Maniacal and messed up and trucking on up the turnpike from Philadelphia to visit WFMU, tune in to hear Ed Wilcox and Leslie Q joined by several musical pals.

Thursday, June 27th, 2002, 11pm - 2am
on
Pat Duncan's show
Formed in 1976 in Edinburgh, Scotland, the Rezillos were initially a fluid and highly informal collective whose repertoire contained material from the likes of the Dave Clark Five and the Sweet.

It has been said of the Rezillos that in an age of bands trying to change the world, they are totally undiluted fun.

Deerhoof
Tuesday, June 25th, 2002, 3pm - 6pm
on
Brian Turner's show
From the Bay Area, Deerhoof have been unpeggable since their inception; just when you are lured in by their indelible hooks and singer Satomi's bubblegum-perfect voice, they evolve into splinters of organized chaos, sharp and chunky guitars and confusion along the order of the more way-out moments of Caroliner or the Thinking Fellers Union. Their first visit to the WFMU studios today.


Autobody
Monday, June 24th, 2002, 8pm - 11pm
on

Makoto ran Weekend Records in Williamsburg for a while and defines the term 'vinylaholic'. Lotsa deep brazillian joints, funk, and wierd early 80's selections, with a touch of Junior Wells, taped from a live set at the club Aubetties (pronounced 'oh-betty's'), right before he had to go back to Japan. Quality edutainment, please serve with chilled wine or generic beer. Look for other junkies to follow in this series.
