Up Your Thrash-Hole

One Crumpy Creepette Caucus

I'd like to spend these starlit hours effusing a little about discipline, and grace. Spice is nice but you've got to think about the whole picture, can't count on apathy, I strut from the dining room to the kitchen and back on the airwaves like every last ant in the hill, all the supes out there (hey pal that's quick for supernaturals... for those of you who live under a meteor dent) are watching my every last move, lingering on each BlllleepBLeepBLOOOOOP like they'll never hear electric again. Disclaimer: This radio show will feature a ghost writer.

The Sonic Synopticon

Calling from Amsterdam, collect of course, we turn towards the light and find ourselves awash in sounds of Pretty Things and Funky Drummers. You shouldn’t waste the day on the same old music, for these are sounds you’ve heard before, but instead delight in the new and the old and the unfamiliar.

Strong Feelings

"Let us return to imperfection's school / No longer wandering after Plato's ghost, / Seeking the garden where all fruit is flawless, / We must at last renounce that ultimate blue / And take a walk in other kinds of weather. / The sourest apple makes its wry announcement / That imperfection has a certain tang / Maybe we shouldn't turn our pockets out / To the last crumb or lingering bit of fluff / But all we can confess of what we are / Has in it the defeat of isolation-- / If not our own then someone's, anyway". ( jangly rangly spine-tinglers and thigh-clenchers. dance like babies do.late sundays 4-6am )

Radio Zero

“There’s a guitar leaning on a Marshall stack / Used to sound like the sun on the horizon / Now I think we’ve been had.” Does this describe you? If so, we’re very sorry. Maybe you ought to listen to Radio Zero. Your hosts play the best in Transgressive Pop and Gestalt Rock.
