Playlist 31.10.04 (7:40 pm)

Well, the Melbourne breakcore lunatics didn't make it to the show tonight (see previous post) but the estimable John Chantler came down after his Frigid set and played live on the show, processing the live cello of yours truly - a Utility Fog first!
Lots of other new music on the show tonight, as well as a little tribute to the beloved John Peel, who tragically died earlier this week. The playlist should speak for itself...

Guests tomorrow (3:49 pm)

OK kiddies, just a quick plug: tomorrow night the inestimable Dave Toecutter will be hauling in a few crazy Melbournians performing (tonight!) at the famous SysCo Halloween night - check the news page for some info.

Here's what the ’cutter has to say about them. Some or all of the following will be down, probably sometime during the second hour (11-12pm Sunday night):
Xian - Coming from hardcore (filthy maggotty cunt) metal into PC carnage-noise, with a dash of Phil Collins and Timberlake.

Cambion - breakcore soundscapes deep and well programmed noise structures

MisconceptIAN - a Breakcore DJ with skills to kill the pills.

Overfiend Rek / AnGUTS - spastic noises, de-structure, stabbing woke up covered in bloody next to your mate's girlfriend, emotional meltdown whiteheat.

Probably mostly playing new music, rather than chatting, because:
It's also altogether possible that John Chantler will head down after Frigid, which may be around the same time. How I'll fit that all in, I dunno - considering I plan to start with a bunch of Peel Sessions in memory of the passing of the great man... Tune in, and tell ya friends!

And by the way, the following Sunday (6th of Nov), the Toecutter man himself will be coming in to play some new tunes of his - mega-hard breakcore, insane appropriation of other people's recordings - and maybe talk about whether "breakcore" sucks and whether radio sucks ;)

Playlist 24.10.04 (10:06 pm)

Lots of new promos and stuff tonight! As well as more from the new Gauche and Triosk albums, we had a sample from a compilation put out by the Melbourne Fringe Festival (a beauty of a track from Inch-time), and various other Australian gems. A bit of a focus also on the more post-rock end of things, although it's hard to get away from a bit of an electronic focus. A new album by The Boats, featuring the two members of The Remote Viewer (both of whom used to be in Hood) on their own Moteer label. More gems from Static Caravan including the incredible English folk-meets-the hard-disc of Tunng, and disquieting almost-ambience from d_rradio, while Do Make Say Think remix themselves for the excellent new Constellation compilation Song of the Silent Land.
Also, something forthcoming and awesome from Hrvatski in Ache Records' Divorce series of split 7"s, and indeed much more!
