Burn It Down! with Nate K.
Burn It Down! with Nate K. is excited to present its first double-band extravaganza, with a twofer from Manchester, England.

Tuesday, October 10th, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

A return to the program six years since their last visit, Wire perform live in studio on WFMU. Formed in 1976, the group immediately staked its place as one of Britain's most celebrated exports of art-punk whose first three records (Pink Flag, 154, and Chairs Missing) are universally regarded as picture-perfect documents of innovative experimentation in songcraft. Traversing the lines between raw minimalist punk and complex experimentations, they've influenced everyone from Minor Threat to My Bloody Valentine, and continue to create new soundways with their latest release Silver and Lead. Wire's 40 years have been marked by constant flux, side projects, regrouping and reinvention, yet they have been without fail pushing their futuristic ideas into the present, never resting on past laurels. The current lineup of Colin Newman, Graham Lewis, Robert Grey and Matthew Simms visit Brian Turner while in town for a three-night, sold out stand at Baby's All Right in Brooklyn from September 28-30.

The score features the Turkish instrument saz played acoustically and amplified with effects creating electronic sounds from a minimal sound source. BaBa ZuLa as a band has also composed for film, television and documentary since its inception in 1996 including "Somersault In A Coffin," "Ice Cream, I Scream," "Biz Size Asik Olduk," "Hyena" and "Mustang."

Adrian Crowley
Tuesday, October 10th, 9pm - Midnight
on Irene Trudel's show

Irish songster Adrian Crowley writes some of the most darkly beautiful tunes and fantasmigorical lyrics you'll ever come across.

On his 8th album, "Dark-Eyed Messenger," Thomas Bartlett aka Doveman produced, adding antique-sounding touches to Adrian's music. Adrian Crowley recorded a live set for WFMU when he visited NYC this past May.

Protomartyr live encore broadcast from Montgomery Hall
Sunday, October 15th, 6am - 9am
Burn It Down! with Nate K.
Simpy put, Detroit's Protomartyr are one of the most dynamic rock bands working today. Let's make it even simpler, they're one of the best. The band's dark, anthemic post-punk, combined with frontman Joe Casey's literary sing-speak vocals, will bring to mind certain UK acts from that formative, much-worshiped era just after '77, but Protomartyr's sound remains 100 percent in line with the twenty-first-century US of A, a necessary and vaguely triumphant soundtrack to counteract the festering decay and descent into oblivion swirling around us. The band recently played an astounding set at Montgomery Hall, and Burn It Down with Nate K. is very excited to present an encore broadcast of that show. It will be followed by a brief interview with singer Joe Casey.

The Music of Shooby Taylor
Monday, October 16th, 7pm - 8pm
Vocal Fry with Dan Bodah
William "Shooby" Taylor called himself "The Human Horn" and turned up on the fringes of the 70s and 80s New York jazz scene playing "air saxophone." Few took him seriously, so Taylor paid for studio time to record himself scatting over his favorite records, or with live accompanists. He achieved belated renown when WFMU discovered one of his tapes in the 1990s. Taylor even visited the station in 2002, shortly before passing away at age 73. Two years later, WFMU Wednesday afternoon host, Irwin Chusid, acquired dozens of Shooby's master tapes. Irwin recently issued two digital volumes featuring 45 tracks of Taylor's strange vocalizing via Bandcamp and iTunes. Irwin visits Vocal Fry on Monday October 16th to showcase the fascinating legacy of Shooby Taylor, the Human Horn, and maybe even share a few exclusive tracks with us.

Thursday, October 19th, 9pm - Midnight
Music To Spazz By with Dave the Spazz

Fabio Frizzi (the Italian soundtrack legend returns!)
Tuesday, October 24th, 7pm - 8pm
Morricone Island with Devon E. Levins
Italian horror soundtrack legend Fabio Frizzi returns to Morricone Island in anticipation of his first ever New York City performances at the Music Hall of Williamsburg on October 29th (a live score of director Lucio Fulci's "The Beyond" by the Frizzi 2 Fulci Orchestra) and October 30th (a tribute to Frizzi's close friend and collaborator Fulci who passed away in 1996 which will include suites with visuals from Zombi 2, Seven Notes in Black, The Beyond, City of the Living Dead and Manhattan Baby). Il Maestro will also be in attendance for a Q&A at Nitehawk Cinema's November 2nd screening of Fulci's "City of the Living Dead."

Philip Lewin
Tuesday, October 24th, 9pm - Midnight
on Irene Trudel's show

In 1975, Philip Lewin released a charming homebrew of an album, all of 300 copies worth. "Am I Really Here All Alone?" was barely noticed outside of Toronto where it was created. In time, Lewin's album was sought after by collectors, fetching a premium price for this collection of melancholic folk with a mildly psychedelic tone. Tompkins Square rescued Philip's album from obscurity, and he's been touring in support of the re-release. Philip Lewin stops by to play a few tunes for WFMU.

Group Doueh (video and audiocast from Montgomery Hall)
Tuesday, November 7th, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

Full video and audiocast of the October 7th visit to WFMU's Montgomery Hall from one of the most blasted psychedelic Western Saharan combos to hit American shores. Founded in the 1980's, headmaster and guitarist Doueh's raw distorted electric guitar stylings juxtapose western elements of Hendrix and James Brown with the poetry of Hassania language in Saharawi folk tradition, all centered around a big band environment that includes two vocalists. "Unhinged virtuosity" is a common phrase attributed to the sound of Group Doueh, truly a spectacle to behold, and thanks to some high profile releases on the Sublime Frequencies imprint, the band's audience has grown greatly. The full concert will stream on home page November 7th on Brian's program, but listeners are strongly encouraged to attend! Tickets are on sale at Monty Hall's site, and the October 7 show, presented by Brian Turner's program, also features NYC's excellent 75 Dollar Bill supporting. A rare and not-to-be-missed stateside event!

The Crystal Robots
Saturday, November 11th, 11am - 1pm
on Michael Shelley's show

Michael welcomes The Crystal Robots in person to talk about their new album & play a few songs live in the studio!

Macho Blush plus Gaute Granli
Tuesday, November 14th, 3pm - 6pm
Brian Turner's show
A twofer of live sonic disruption on the program with a US-tour pitstop at WFMU's studios. Macho Blush is the project of Austin, Texas artist Gina Probst, whose sound alchemy transcends the normal noise and collage zones, creating otherwordly atmospheres broken up and reconstructed before your very ears. She's on tour with Norwegian guitarist Gaute Granli whose past combos have included Freddy the Dyke and Skadne Krek. His set promises some further abstractions, or as once eloquently stated by Sound Projector: "riffs like a baboon casting coconuts from a tree, and percussion effects that stumble blindly about the room like a hooded goblin."

Matt Lucas
Saturday, November 18th, 11am - 1pm
Michael Shelley's show
Michael welcomes powerhouse singer, drummer, and songwriter Matt Lucas, best known for his crazy rocked-up 1963 version of Hank Snow's "I'm Movin' On".

Pere Ubu
Tuesday, November 21st, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

Pere Ubu follow up their 2016 performance program with a grand return, while on tour to support their latest release "20 Years In a Missile Silo". Undoubtedly one of the most important bands in the history of the American underground, Pere Ubu emerged from Cleveland in 1975 to challenge art and rock music to step outside its well-trodden '70s safety zone. They're often credited with being thee missing link between the Velvet Underground and the late 70's punk explosion, but have also established a solid discography of records way beyond that continuing into the modern era, continually reinventing their own identity and always looking forward. Pere Ubu plays the Music Hall of Williamsburg November 12th, and we're honored to have them back on the program.

Paul Karasik
Saturday, November 25th, 11am - 1pm
on Michael Shelley's show

Michael chats with co-authors Mark Newgarden, Paul Karasik about their new long awaited book "How To Read Nancy" (with forward by Jerry Lewis)

The Rebel
Tuesday, November 28th, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

Inhabiting the strange zone somewhere in between William Burroughs, The Fall, George Jones and The Residents, The Rebel AKA Ben Wallers has existed as the solo (and more prolific) extension of London's beloved-slash-undernourished Country Teasers. Through countless recordings, Wallers' songs of whimsy and dripping societal observations and indictments have made for a solid catalogue of true English outsider greatness; in fact his 2008 visit to Brian's show with band in tow resulted in the great live LP "Northern Rocks Bear Weird Vegetable" on the Sacred Bones label. Wallers visits the program on the heels of a European tour with Austin pals Spray Paint, and his latest LP release "Poems With Water Triology" is out on Texan imprint Monofonus Press.
