on
Pat Duncan's show
Blackeyes are drum-corps-core from D.C., featuring ex-Rapture member. Massive percussion (two full-time drummers, other drum kit pieces scattered around the stage), bass-driven. A very rhythmic feel. Think of a no-wave !!! or the dubbed-out version of the Slits. They've just recorded their first 7" with Ian MacKaye.

Early Humans play loud rock on see-through drums. The sound is closest family-tree-wise to West Coast hardcore of the mid-1990s: Antioch Arrow, Angel Hair, that sort of thing. They toured in 2001 with Blood Brothers.

A rare chance to hear a Black Metal band that utilizes saxophone and Hammond organ on their records; what they will be like live will surely blow minds. You do not want to miss this.

Monday, April 22nd, 2002, Noon - 3pm
on
The John Allen Show
Kevin Smith, a.k.a. Ares of Hercules, died of complications from injuries related to a movie set accident in February. The New Zealand hunk of Maori descent enjoyed relatively no level of success prior to his acting career. Regardless, he released over a half dozen records of lo-fi pop and folk music in the first half of the '80s which are comparable to the professional amatuer releases on exclusive underground labels such as Flying Nun and Rough Trade. Why was his music career hushed over the years, and why shortly after his death followed the announcement of plans for an ambitious re-issue effort to make available these long out of print recordings by Smith's bands Say Yes To Apes, Hyphen-Smyth and the Legacy of Ears? Tune in at 1:30 pm. Here's a good Kevin Smith website ... surabufix.simplenet.com/kevin.html

Experience the real 1850s heavy doom sounds of Sacred Harp shape-note singing! This is an early American folk music sung in large groups which originated in New England but was quickly eradicated from "genteel" society due to its unsettling intensity. The music survived in the 19th century frontiers of the South and Midwest, and has recently been revived in New England, leading to an annual sing held in Northampton, Massachuetts. Dan Bodah went this year and recorded the awesome shouted sounds and interviewed a few of the practitioners. Listen in for the results!

The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T
Martin Moscrop from the legendary punk-disco Factory band A Certain Ratio will be visiting the Cherry Blossom Clinic. A Certain Ratio were one of the first bands to embrace both Post Punk ethics and dance floor grooves. Martin will be spinning stuff which has influenced ACR over the years as well as newer sounds - Post Punk, Italo Disco, Dunk, Acid House and Electro. ACR haven't performed in America in over 15 years and for most of us this will probably be the only time we'll ever hear anyone that was on the Factory label, aside from New Order.

Mojo hit the music scene in the '80s scoring with alternative radio hits like "Jesus at McDonalds" and "Stuffin Martha's Muffin." He quickly developed a solid reputation as a wildman. He has worked as talk radio host in Cincinnati where he was fired from talk radio giant WLW. He now finds himself a part of the morning crew of WEBN Radio. When Mojo meets Jones a trainwreck is likely to ensue. www.mojonixon.com

Around 11pm or so, expect DJ Pantshead of the Evolution Control Committee to hijack Nickel and Dime radio with some retarded selections and cut-ups.

Definitely czeck it, these people are thee humorous antidote to the very sick world we live in.

It's Cherry Blossom time - time for a flowery infusion of Japanese roots and popular music. From j-pop to j-bhangra, a genre-bashing journey to the land of corn danish and toilet-paper vending machines.
