Also in Desinence are Jerry (bass), Dan (lead guitar), Mike (rhythm guitar), and Rich (drums).

Mosurock with Doug M.
Since 1997, London's Fridge have been creating challenging, complex music as a trio that rivals only This Heat in terms of sheer scale, drama, and depth and successful execution of ideas, not to mention the virtual ignorance by nearly every player in the US indie racket. That's all about to change, though - the band's fourth album Happinesshas just been released on the Temporary Residence label, they're embarking on their first stateside tour, and they're gracing WFMU's presence with a live set and an in-depth on-air interview conducted by Doug and theblowup.com impresario Seth Hodes.

on Mosurock with Doug M.

Hailing from New York City, the Walkmen play a rickety, trebly, seductive style of rock, fueled by the teenage garage grind of early Stones and Van Morrison, the melancholy shimmy of Southern Gothic tributes like the Rock*a*Teens, and the endless stream of worthwhile musical ideas that sprung forth from the first days of U2 or the Pixies.

Vocalist/guitarist Jason Sanford constructs the band's instruments out of scrap metal (such as old gas tanks, saw blades, and bike parts), resulting in creations that look and sound entirely unique. The resulting music is aggressive, inventive and clunky, yet surprisingly tuneful and catchy.

Pat Duncan's show
Countdown to Putsch has just released Idea for the Living and Willing to Act on Ebullition. It's a 100-page magazine and 72 minute CD featuring a lecture by feminist Susan Brownmiller at the end of the CD. They've previously released a book and CD called Handbook for Planetary Progress which featured an interview with the chairman of the International Forum on Aceh, Jafar Hamzah (who was recently slain in Aceh after returning there to continue his political actions). Musically, Countdown To Putsch explores a fusion of jazz and hardcore, and conceptually they are pushing the boundaries of what it means to be in a band. You can read and hear the "Handbook" at www.mtncia.com and you can access the band's label at www.ebullition.com.

Oneida
Monday, September 17th, 2001, 8pm - 11pm

A very welcome return to our airwaves. We hope for a catharsis of sorts. (Daryll-Ann, originally scheduled for this date was unable to get here from the Netherlands.)

The Flying Luttenbachers
Thursday, September 13th, 2001, 11pm - 2am
on
Pat Duncan's show
Chicago's Flying Luttenbachers have been torturing innocents with bizarre alien hybrids of extreme music for almost a decade now. The latest lineup features founder Weasel Walter (drums) with two dueling bassists executing hyper-speed 'Brutal Prog' that owes as much to Stravinsky, Teenage Jesus and the Magic Band as it does Gorguts. Album number 10 -- Infection and Decline -- is due in early 2001 on Troubleman Unlimited.


Burning Brides
Thursday, September 13th, 2001, Noon - 3pm
on
Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock
This could be the perfect marriage of hard rock and even more rock. This Philadelphia group is as melodic as they are metallic.


Pea Hicks
Wednesday, September 12th, 2001, Noon - 1:30pm
on
Irwin Chusid
Mr. Hicks is one-half of the obsolete-tech duo Optiganally Yours, who have undertaken the thankless task of sparking a resurgence of public indifference to Mattel's early '70s lo-fi groove machine, the Optigan. OY currently records for Absolutely Kosher Records, and will be in town to perform at a CMJ showcase. On Irwin's program, Pea will spin new and unreleased Optiganally Yours tracks, as well as sharing oddities from his personal record collection.

Wednesday, September 12th, 2001, 2am - 6am
on Airborne Event with Dan Bodah

Long-time WFMU friend Hajeski collaborates with French guest Plazas in an exclusive studio recording for Airborn Event. Hear everything from Hajeski's modified Speak-n-Spells and spring-reverb solo to Plazas's samples of the Jean Mahtab composition "Quai no. 1" and his NYC explorations. Draw an audio map of the collective unconscious - and find out about Bill Cosby's love child to boot!


Lightning Bolt Re-Broadcast
Tuesday, September 11th, 2001, 3pm - 6pm
on
Brian Turner's show
Another chance to catch the February session that STILL has WFMU staffers talking. In fact they now often say: "Eh? Whatcha say?? Speak up a little louder, I'm a bit deaf." Brian Chippendale and Brian Gibson delivered like 18,000 volts of electricity and an unnamed FMU-er lost a large degree of bowel control, but we won't talk about that.


Michael G and Brian fill in.
