Sparks: Live on WFMU! Plus interview with Ron and Russell Mael 
Tuesday, October 31st, 3pm - 6pm 
on Brian Turner's show 

An incredible show planned as Brian welcomes the one and only Sparks, performing live in full glory as a 7-piece band at WFMU! Formed in 1972, brothers Ron and Russell Mael established their own turf with willfully eccentric, inventive pop music that has been spread out over 24 albums including their latest, Hippopotamus. Prolifically melding cultural satire with numerous musical traditions, Sparks have applied classicism and often theatricality with glam, new wave, disco, artrock, and baroque and bubblegum pop, consistently working within the mainstream while skimming around its edges as defined outsiders. They've worked with producers like Todd Rundgren, Giorgio Morodor, and Tony Visconti, and have had top 5 hits all over the UK and Europe; they've appeared in 80's teen flicks and created soundtrack work and have even been commissioned by the Swedish government to do a radio tribute to Ingmar Bergman. Collaborations and artists both musical and visual that they've influenced read like a guestlist to the most glamorous event you can imagine. Their current 2017 lineup touring Europe, the USA, and Japan are a full-on kickass rock band, and the results of their daylong pitstop and performance at the station is gonna be jawdropping on the radio. Afterwards, Brian chats with Ron and Russell! Absolutely not to be missed, true legends!

Known for their prolific output of albums since the late 1990's, splintering from founding guitarist Oleg Guitaracula's sampledelic, post-easy listening, mondo-surf duo Messer Fur Frau Muller, the St. Petersburg, Russia-based surf trio deliver another coffin full of action-packed b-movie, exploitation, horror, sci-fi-inspired (mostly) instrumentals. Bassist Zombierella promises to also treat listeners to a couple of her carefully curated 7" Halloween favorites! 

A Halloween Spook-tacular!

Hailing from Chicaco, they return to WFMU in the midst of their tour ready to leave you scratching your head and asking... "What Was Music?" For fans of experimental-electronic, bleeps and bloops, noise and all that is strange. 

The Paranoid Style and Proper Ornaments 
Wednesday, November 1st, 9pm - Midnight 
The Evan "Funk" Davies Show 
From our nation’s capital we welcome The Paranoid Style to the WFMU studios! Their album Rolling Disclosure landed in EFD’s Top 10 of 2016 with a winning combination of catchy poppy tunes and clever lyrics. They’re back with a new EP, Underworld U.S.A. (Bar/None) plus a show at Union Hall in Brooklyn on Friday October 27th. Fans of the New Pornographers, in particular, will want to tune in for this live set.

Also on tonight’s show: London’s Proper Ornaments, fronted by James Hoare (Ultimate Painting, Veronica Falls) and Max Oscarnold (TOY, Pink Flames). They’ve been making records since 2011, and their latest, Foxhole (Slumberland), came out earlier this year. Not surprisingly it’s filled with warm guitar-driven psych tunes, and the band delivers that same sound — perhaps more stretched out — in this live set. Tune in Wednesday November 1 at 9pm for both of these live sets! 

The Proletariat 
Thursday, November 2nd, Noon - 3pm 
on Diane's Kamikaze Fun Machine

Although not a hardcore-by-the-numbers band, they were at heart of the Boston hardcore scene from the 80's, and the band reformed a couple of years ago and have been playing gigs to reviews of being tirelessly energetic and poignant, Diane is happy to bring them to the listeners November 2. Go see them and tune in!

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!

You'll think there must be more than bass and drums in the band, but you'll be wrong. Catch this live set on WFMU Wednesday November 8 at 9pm! 

Drew Carolan 
Thursday, November 9th, Noon - 3pm 
Diane's Kamikaze Fun Machine 
Between 1983 and 1985, New York City photographer Drew Carolan photographed patrons of the now infamous hardcore matinees that were going on at the seminal underground music club, CBGB. Carolan was working as an assistant to Richard Avedon, and on weekends he set up a makeshift studio across the street from CBGB and intercepted kids on their way to the afternoon shows. The result is a collection of photographs capturing the unbridled energy of youth during the height of the Reagan years. His book is called MATINEE, and the collection is a 10"x10" hardcover volume featuring nearly 150 pages of images. On November 18th, from 7-10 pm, The Matinee Book Release and Signing event will be happening at NY's Generation Records, including a live performance by New York Hardcore legends, The Mob.

A twofer of live sonic disruption on the program with a US-tour pitstop at WFMU's studios.

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."

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.

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.

WFMU’s cash flow problem is the stuff of monster movies, and our October Fundraiser is here to help carry us through the leanest months of the year. We hope you can tune in and help out the Freeform Station of the Nation as we launch our Into the Black campaign to double the number of people making monthly donations and get the station out of the red! If you are not a Swag 4 Life monthly donor, PLEASE join the campaign this month! And if you’re already in the Swag 4 Life program, please increase your monthly donation by whatever amount is doable. We are hoping to increase our roster of Swag 4 Lifers from 2000 to 4000 during this fundraiser.

For your pledge: Two great new tees (including a re-print of our famed Woof-Moo tee!), our 4th annual Mascot Contest, and generally keeping your listening experiences free of interruption until our March ‘thon. Please spread the word and go to starting October 1st to 31st! You can also pledge directly here:
