Slow, ghoulish blues from this classic underground Halloween release. A riot.

Catchy instrumental from this Chicago vet. It bops in a modern way and embraces melody. Too bad I cut the song off half way.

Mix up a bit of The Cramps with The Go-Gos for a quick reference to this home brewed band. A lot of character and fun inside.
webmaster@flamingfire.com

Arol and the Zendik Band/ Walk Through Hell/ Zendik CD
Dig that huge bass drum sound over which Ms. Wulf-Zendik intones a sermon on the life she sees and lives. If you took Nico, removed her German accent and infused a liter of downers it might sound like this.
mail@zendik.org

Mike Carlisle/ Jessica/ Cricket Power CD
Someone said the melody sounded like the Armour Hot Dog song and now I cant get that out of my mind. The tasty musicianship of Mr. Carlisle is evident and of course extra points for pedal steel.

Klampe-McGee-Noring/ Candlebox Diorama/ FDR CD
An excerpt from this 3 way experimental electronic project. Buzz buzz.
bnoring@webtv.net

Jugalbandi/ Moving Towards Kyoto/ Great Artiste 89 CD
Rather like avant garde ethnic music here with koto-ish guitar and
flat drums. Lots of good improv throughout this CD.
gregsegal@gregsegal.com

Bill and John Storch/ Blinders/ Lantern CD
I believe this is music for dance from these talented brothers and if not, should be. Rich keyboards, full percussion, worthy melodies and compositions highlight this excellent instrumental release.

From Pittsburgh, my theme song from a hall of fame home taper.
Ken has a lot of interesting material so get in touch with him.
clinger@duq.edu

James Richard Oliver/ id, Shes A Burnout/ Illbilly 7
A good time is in store with JRs music. Chunky, punky and ragged retro rock picking. Hes a got a rockabilly sense but more ill.Yknow?
illbilly@ellijay.com

Junk Train/ Kudzu/ Illbilly CD
Big time rock chords merge with alt-country mood highlighted by strong vocals from a white boy shouter.Pretty powerful song.





Jes/ Remember/---CD
Headstrong female vocals here somewhat akin to a rockier Bjork.
The band sounds full and the production put her vocals right up front where they belong. Probably a good live act too.
JESBRIEDEN@aol.com

Suckerface/ iice/---CD
Trent Reznors shadow appears in this well produced NIN influenced project. He gets it right with the whispered vocals and the dark, menacing vocals. Nice mixing.
halo@suckerface.net

Scavenger Quartet/ The Romantic Side Of Trixie Arquette/ Snowdonia CD
A beautifully arranged, intelligent instrumental from this Euro sounding group (actually from Michigan). Features Frank Pahls trademark whistling and outstanding musicianship from the band. Great stuff, fab tunes.
fpahl@umich.edu

Susan Alcorn/ Amazing Grace/ Loveletter CD
A superb reading of the timeless warhorse from this groundbreaking pedal steelist. Ms. Alcorn is creating a music unlike any other mixing traditional elements with unusual and evocative, avant garde arrangements on this formerly pigeonholed instrument. Amazing indeed.
Sus453@aol.com

Kaye/ Princess Of Twee/ Best Kept Secret K7
Catchy pop fun with a slight feel of naive charm and a dash of psych fluff.Yummy.
acrestani@telemar.it

Suicide Cat/ Sympathy No.4/ Pink Hedgehog CD
I love this disc of folk rock duets from Simon Felton (Garfields Birthday) and James Laming. Harmonies abound, hooks galore and nothing pushes too hard. It just grows on me more and more. One of the years best.
pinkhedgehog@dumbangel.freeserve.co.uk

Kizzy/ In The Middle/ Best Kept Secret K7
Minimal folk psych with emphasis on vocal melody. Highly enjoyable tape from Kayes sister.
Alessandro Crestani
E-mail Address(es):
acrestani@telemar.it



Kinski Spiral/ Cant Wait Til Summer/ Pop! CD
Speaking of pop hooks, this CD has many. I like how the vocals get traded off between Erin Carracher and Ray Carmen. Nice accents from the drums and a jangly overall sound dominate the entire CD. Another 2001 standout.
raycarmen@yahoo.com

Will Simmons/ Major To Minor/ Best Kept Secret K7
Lo fi strummer doesnt forget it is about the song. Mr Simmons puts his heart into it and it shows. Non pretentious winner here.
acrestani@telemar.it

Steve Andrews/ Youre A Liar Nicky Wire/---CD
Welsh musician know for his social folkiness delivers a techno mix of this protest song although I dont really know what hes ranting about. It appears to be a protest against higher alcohol prices. Do they drink over there or something?
steve.andrews1@ntlworld.com

Aled Hughes/ Small Problem/---K7
How about two in a row from Wales?! Mr Hughes is the strummer here. He uses a rather staccato vocal approach on this track sort of like he wrote the guitar part first and then laid a vocal over it. What the hell is he talking about?
erylaledhughes@hotmail.com

R.U.N.I./Clinicoccochio/---CD
If the Talking Heads and Devo had a baby and it sang in Italian this might be it. Rhythms get hammered and it is all very dramatic. Good stuff.
bdorell@tin.it

Deep/ Aint No Feeble Bastards/ Bar La Muerte LP
Fuzzy bass driven lo fi rock with thought out accents real me in like a hungry trout in a turbulent river. This comes from a neat compilation LP on this Italian label. Juicy but no fishy odor.
bdorell@tin.it



Ovo/ Ti Amo Assasine/ Bar La Muerte CD
Abstract doodling from this drums/violin/noise duet. Spooky vocals.
bdorell@tin.it

4-5 PM
Dark Knight Enterprises/ My Street/---CD
Call and response chorus from these rappers creates a nice full tune.I dig.

Little Fyodor/ Revolution #9/---CD
A wild collage mix from that crazy musician and DJ, Little Fyodor from Colorado marking the 20th anniversary of John Lennons death.
littlefyodor@yahoo.com

Fustercluck/ Magnetic North/ Vaporine CD
Now if The Chipmunks also had a baby with Devo it might be deformed like this tune.This is a hilarious riot of a CD. Twisted and demented goo.

Dharma Bums/ Suburban Asassins/---CD
Coming on like Californias answer to Arto Lindsay, Greg Gray and Joe Menichetti bossa their way all over your lawn while driving your kiddies to school.
squidcat@hotmail.com

Greg Segal/ Honor/ Phantom Airship CD
Southern California guitar slinger jangles up with an electric twelve string and a loud band-type production. Nice picking throughout the disc too.
gregsegal@gregsegal.com

Bag:Theory/ Sleazier Than A Used Drug Dealer/---CD
Electric rock improv with some jazz lurking inside too. Loose playing but established and very competent instrumentalists.


Autocad/ City Days/---CD
Well mixed, interesting rhythmic track, all instrumental and nice.

Bill and John Storch/ The Storm/---CD
Full bodied instrumental sounds from a music for dance piece. Hrad driving, insistent and engaging. Fantastic fidelity and performance.
Storchbros@aol.com



Susan Alcorn/ Mercedes Sosa/ Loveletter CD
Far out and innovative instrumental from this veteran pedal steel guitarist and composer. If you want something different, challenging and unique, get this. NOW.
Sus453@aol.com

Infant Cycle/ Gravol/ The Ceiling CD
Rattlings from the underground chamber with lots of room for some even scarier silence. Tremendously assembled as always from Mr Jim DeJong of Canada (great label too, The Ceiling).
jdejong@nas.net

East October/ Morning Song/ Szum CD
Atmospheres of reverb, textures of silver water against smooth stones. More fine instrumental moodiness.
bharal@highpoint.net

LOrchestre Imaginaire/ track 2/ ---CD
Trip the sound fantastic from this Belgium musician who maybe took half a hit too much. Sometimes the volume jumps too much but the playing is early Pink Floyd all the way. He even has real drums to flesh it all out.Tune in , turn on, drop way out.


Noring-McGee/ Fortuitous Happenstance #2/ FDR CD
Densely overlapping field recordings from the pockets of two veteran experimentalists who have each created extremely large bodies of work. Visit their Library of Congress for something strange.
bnoring@webtv.net

The Messyheads/ Dont Care/---CD
A little like 80s era Lou Reed minus the street and more pop directed.
The former Messyheads work seemed to be a band effort , on this disc it is more of a solo project by NY songwriter, John Connor.

Holly Figueroa/ Here/ Indiegrrl CD

First a short spoken track and then a slow, fuzz driven, drunken sounding mope-a- dope with visions of Neil Young.

Arol Wulf-Zendik/ She Is Me/ Zendik CD
Brooding, commune group with a singer whos a cross between Marianne Faithful and maybe,um, Charles Bukowski. Sounds like some large livin to me.

Neato new wave workout, like a choo choo train heading towards candyland.

Garlic/ Slave To The Summer,Son/ Propylactic CD
A little more Neil Young on the plate from this excellent British alt country rock outfit. Less country and more rock on this track. One of my faves of 2001.

Jon Sheffield/ Topics Collide/ Tomlab CD
A very pleasant and humble sort of electronica using subtle elements and colliding sounds. It has really grown on me. Toytronica?
info@tomlab.de

Al Perry/ id/---K7
A special station id from this great guitarist and songwriter.
alperry003@hotmail.com

Trevor Hall/ True/ Obscure Delight CD
Brand new release from veteran British home taper shows him at the top of his game. Strong melodies and well executed backing tracks showcase his high tenor voice. Brit pop is back.




Doc Wor Mirran/ Song Of Steel Death/ 60 Second Plopped Tragedy CD
International home tapers reveal their rock style on this track. They have a lot of talent up their sleeves, and a lot of variety.
docwormirran@empty.de

Caity Campau/ id/---K7
My daughter with a special id.

Tidal Flood/ Tidal Mew/---CD
Greek quartet rocks hard in the manner of Ozric Tentacles. Hot guitar!
info@tidalflood.com

Fish Karma/ Die Like A Dog/ Deep Shag CD
In the 80s Fish put out one of the greatest cassettes ever that featured his nasal voice mixed with cynical musings and scathing outbursts. This new CD, produced by Al Perry, captures some old classics and mixes them in with some new gems. Im not sure it packs the same wallop as his early material but the essence is still there. Its fun stuff.
michael@deepshag.com

Linda Smith/ Public Life Story/---CD
Linda has a unique harmonic and melodic vision and as a home taper has chalked up some memorable and sometimes off kilter material. Her voice is not the silky angel type but angular and quirky. Some songs harken to personal events and others have an odd feel to them like the song adapted from Abe Lincoln. She is a major home taper. Some very nice instrumentals too.
misssmith@att.net

The Action Items/ Love Is Great/---3 CD
A wonderful 2 song 3 CD with excellent vocals and production.
www.theactionitems.com

Cuda/ Orange Army/ 12th Records CD
Car guy talk erupts into intense hardcore rock. Big sound here.

Little Fyodor/ I Believe In God/ ---CD
Taken from his re-issue CD, our man LF wails like a banshee and strums like a thousand bees. Sure, its funny but look a little closer, theres some truth in there.
littlefyodor@yahoo.com


Sack and Doc Wor Mirran/ Ein Zimmer/ Marginal Talent EP
A neat collectors item: it looks like a CD , then you pull it out and its a EP record with two short songs. I wish I understood the german in-jokeness of it but I always love the playful feeling of Sacks music and voice. Joined here by wunderband, Doc Wor Mirran.
docwormirran@empty.de

The Real World/ Thinking Out Loud/---CD
Shouting out the sreet hop on a two songer. Yeah boy.
sickofstress@hotmail.com

Bill Retoff/ id/---K7
Bills calling us to attention.

Weedeater/ Free/ Berserker CD
Guitarcore with a punky go, go, go chorus that I like.

The Groovers/ Illusion/---CD
Aussies beat a groove to death in a good way. Nice horn and trombone soloing on top on the wave. Live recording is a bit distant, more like a document.
stephenewart@optusnet.net.au

Par Avion/ Acidand Crescent/ Best Kept Secret K7
Aussie rock sounds Euro infected but turned upside down. Nice vocals and everything is fine on side one (good tunes, presentable length) but on side two the proceedings get long winded and they could have written some extra lyrics or sculptued the tunes in a richer way. Potential though.

Heather Perkins/ id/---K7
Our favorite Portland resident with a station id.



Project North Meets South/ I Cant Sing/---CD
Their sound trebly on this CD and musically Im not sure they can decide on which style to adapt but theyve got heart in a country rock sort of mainstream way.
alladinsane1961@aol.com




4-5 PM
Earwig Spectre/ The Internationale/---K7
Low fi live recordings from the Earwig Man giving a new meaning to the word wacked. Keyboards and vocals in a very offbeat manner with crazy, off the wall lyrics. Now can you see why I like it?
earwigspectre@hotmail.com


Jad Fair and Jason Willett/ Astrid Rose/ Empty CD
U-ground legend Fair teams up with a guy I dont know for some eccentric rhythm rock meanderings veering into Beefheart meets Tiny Tim territory. A raucous ruckus ensues.
docwormirran@empty.de


Onq/ The Supreme Weight/ Ouzel CD
Mopey Italian rock with vocals buried in a haze of acoustic guitars and ancient marble. He gets under my skin with some unpredictable melodies.
onq@libero.it

Kat Parsons/ Wonder/---CD
A stunning vocal work, very powerfully sung with just piano accompaniment. Poppish singer songwriter material honors the ghost of
Laura Nyro (among others).
kat_parsons@yahoo.com

Timo/ Later Tonight/ Lonely Whistle CD
Our expatriate strummer/singer gets a little melancholy and adds a splash of keyboards for an even more moody song. Fine work by Timo.
campaudj@jps.net


Tony Low/ Captain Sails/ Lowtunes CD
Mr Low exhibits a knack for hooky harmonies and smooth recording. A bit like The Association meets Dino DiMuro.
Lowtunes@aol.com




Garlic/ Drink Induced Conversation/---7
British band gives twinges of alt rock/ country with some nice accents and playing along the way. Vocals remind me of a Thurston Moore solo project.
nick@garlicmusic.co.uk




Scotty MacGregor/ Crazy Little Saxophone/---CD
A very fun lo fi childrens album. Short simple songs that recall the old days of music hall, ragtime and folk. Shake your fanny to that cheapo auto rhythm.

Paul Fisher/ Rose Marie/---CD
Brit balladeer pokes along and it crawls under your skin. Nice singalong chorus. Another example of how the Brits are influenced by country music.
Hes a got a high sweet tenor voice and infectious slow chorus.


Aled Hughes/ Internet Set/---CD
Straight forward folk set from this Welsh singer. A couple songs in his native language too. Hey, buy those Welsh some vowels!
erylaledhughes@hotmail.com


Karl Williams/ Lazy Susan/ Greene St CD
Easy goin blues boppin about a lazy sister.
jhhgrnst@worldpath.net

Audra Kubat/ The Chosen Ones/ Remedy CD
Beautiful folk style arrangements of original tunes by this Detroit area singer. Somewhere the ghost of Sandy Denny looks down and smiles.
stunningamazon@yahoo.com

The Switch Off Option/ Lookonian/ Clod CD
Culled from hours of jamming , these Brit improvisers have a nice sense of dynamics and really fine musicianship. Hearing the whole CD at once can be a bit daunting because of the many, long tracks but it is definitely a keeper. If you like freeform jazz this is for you.
cr@fragout42.fsnet.co.uk

Matthew J Harris/ Petals Open/---CD
Clouds of suspended chords, dreamy and echoey keyboards play with the notion of time. Very well done ambient excursions.
mharris@searchforchange.com




Geodesia/ Foto...(excerpt)/---CD
Electronic album with some noisey elements and cut ups. Cool stuff.
Roberto Lazaro

Droneament/ Prehistorique Musique/ The Ceiling LP
Saw tones and electronic meanderings underpin this outstanding split LP release on Canadas unique, The Ceiling, label. Put the needle anywhere, a trippy ride.

My theme from one of Americas Hall of Fame tapers. Recently he has re-issued almost all of his old tapes onto CDRs giving us a chance to rethink and rehear what makes great his chamber- like solo work, his many collaborations and his sets of odds and ends. The one and only.

Hulu Project featuring Stepanida/Osuokhai/ CCnC CD
A finely polished world beat extravaganza with the exotic Tuvan/Russian voice (reminiscent of Sainhko Namtchylak) of Stepanida backed by some tasty Euro drum n bass ticklings .A quite astounding and well done cross pollination.
Hubl.G@t-online.de

The Danubians/ Heavy Heaven/ Cuneiform CD
An international band fronted by the incredible Amy Denio capturing the flavor of Central Europe with a distinctly modern feeling. Nice double female vocals appear, accordions wheeze and the band invites you for a sidewalk coffee in this in this captivating live recording.
amydenio@earthlink.net

James Call/ Working Girl, I Love The Northwest/ Mishap K7
Goofy, funky and twisted this Devo inspired guy coughs up some entertaining and quirky music. Great lyrics and tunes so catchy you are singing them before they are over.

Pope John Paul The Third/ Whats Done Is Done/ Mishap CD
More devolved home taping madness from these two Santa Cruz brothers mixing off the wall geekiness with heartfelt country tunes.
You gotta love these guys.

Mike Garlington/ Omah Devoe/ Mishap CD
If Tom Waits ran into a jug band while drunk something like this might show up. Lo fi and eccentric-pass me the bottle.
mishap_productions@hotmail.com






Jonas Ted Bond/ Lullaby/ Mishap CD
Another side project for Bros. Beebe featuring their pal Bond. Not as quirky as their own stuff or as demented. Its OK in its way.
mishap_productions@hotmail.com

John Bartles/ Drinkin In The Bible Belt/---K7
Over the years, Bartles modus operandi has changed very little: He hires some very competent local musicians to play some rough and tumble blues behind his bitter, humorous and sometimes profane songs about drinking and being an outcast all sung in a raspy, grizzled snarl. We are so much better for it.
PO Box 106, Livonia Center NY

Endorphin/ White Boy Day/ Mishap K7
Riffy rock, trashed up, spit out and in your face.

Bill Retoff/id/---K7

Home recorded pop rock bordering on Ben Folds 5 crossed with a 70s sensibility. Kind of grows on me.

Some nice examples in this set of the variety this group achieves.
Gruff lo fi, country and echoes of the cassette scene.
mishap_productions@hotmail.com




Dreambeach/ Shapeshifter/---CD
High production values from this Santa Cruz duo that sound their best when slow sailing upon their Euro sounding techno-lite. This song is a little heftier and funkier and most of their other material and the whole CD benefits from the smooth and dreamy voice of Pipa Pinon.
postmaster@dreambeach.net

Column One/ Hasel 44/ Moloko CD
Weird remake of a Mimetic tune (French avant/techno/classical band) with layers of rhythm, inserted noises and sounds.

Third stream loopiness from this Santa Cruz guitarist and composer. Comes from his excellent Loops and Lines CD.

Dreambeach/ Standing Outside/---CD
Another nice one from their CD, Making Friends With Gravity.
postmaster@dreambeach.net

Cyoahka Grace/ Church Of The Holy Trees/ Land Of The Blind CD
Singer-songwriter with a world beat edge, kind of gutsy vocals.
(address needed)

Bill Retoff/id/---K7
Promo by this fine home taper.

Wendy Rule/ Like Roses, Like Snow/---CD
Folk style song with a very sensitive vocal. Quite lovely.
(address needed)

Dreambeach/ Angels Cry/ Blue Rhythm CD
You are sitting on a Mediterranean beach just enjoying life and the sun. Someone walks by with a cool drink and in the background a radio is playing this song.
postmaster@dreambeach.net

4-5 PM

Hulu Project/ Kuorakka.../CCnC CD
Another exotic track from this modern sounding world fusion disc. Russian vocalist supreme Stepanida wails on top of tracks by these European electronica artists.
Hubl.G@t-online.de

Nothing Else/ Beautiful and Lost/ Best Kept Secret K7
Tea/ Satellite/ Best Kept Secret K7
These two tracks come from compilations on the Best Kept Secret label from Italy. These are pretty much rockin cuts and the tapes as a whole feature oodles of good international underground music.
acrestani@telemar.it



Cheese/ Where Are They Now?/ Pink Hedgehog CD
A brilliant track, somewhat reminiscent of XTC from this quite fine and dandy CD by this UK quartet. Hookier than your fishing line and crammed with bait. Got ya.
pinkhedgehog@dumbangel.freeserve.co.uk

Laura Ballay/id/---K7
A Chinese language promo for the show.

Shay/ Hello The Shore/---CD
A bit harder rocking than most of their other dreamy psych tracks, this UK group features the vocals of Finn Millar, a deeper voiced chanteuse.
(ask me for their postal address, no e mail)

Big Block 454/ Canned Food In Combat/ MP3.com CD
From their unusual 4 track CD, this cut has the strange lyrics they are known for and a cool weird beginning. Love this UK band.
bb454@mcmail.com

Dreambeach/ Flowers/---CD
Check the strong bass playing throughout this excellent CD by Daniel Lewis and of course the lovely vocals of Pipa Pinon.
postmaster@dreambeach.net

Machine Boy/ Unpredictable/ Shotgun Charlie CD
This is Dean Cooks (tenboy) instrumental, electronica side and although I dont think it has quite the power of his pop music it is still decent stuff, gurgling and bouncing and synthing along.
dean@shotguncharlie.co.uk

Matthew J Harris/ Dissolve/---CD
Beautiful, rolling waves of barely perceptible sound, a rumbling, a droning, a wash of melody. Perfect for the morning and produced in a most excellent manner.
mharris@searchforchange.com

Dreambeach/ Psyche Of Surrender/---CD
The opening track from this duos latest CD sets the spell with a slow, soft and haunting presence.
postmaster@dreambeach.net


Matt Borghi/ December Impressions/---CD
Quiet instrumental, moody adventures for a rainy day.
mattborghi@yahoo.com

Ken Clinger/ Radio/ Bovine CD
My theme song from one of Americas great resources, the prolific Mr. Clinger.
Everyone around the station has learned to love this song!

Relocated to SF from Tucson, Al churns out some fine blues/rock guitar and country type songs on his own releases. Here he does a promo for my show.

Cheese/ Everybody's Gone/ Pink Hedgehog CD
Quite outstanding rock music, in an XTC vein from 94-97 on this excellent British label. This foursome has the hooks and chops to really satisfy.
pinkhedgehog@dumbangel.freeserve.co.uk


Garfield's Birthday/ Everything/ Pink Hedgehog CD
Another fine English rock/pop outfit, this comes from a very nice compilation called Ear Candy. pinkhedgehog@dumbangel.freeserve.co.uk

Sneaky Pete/ Skeeters 'N Beer/---CD
After hes done teaching at a Texas college, Sneaky Pete Rizzo grabs his guitar, perhaps a couple of brews and pens some hilarious tunes about dogs, everyday events and of course, beer.
rizzo@mail.bio.tamu.edu

Big Block 454/ I Name This Child Acker Bilk/MP3.com CD
This is a very interesting and unusual 4 song CD that freely dips into jazzy feels, geeky computer rock and understated humor.
bb454@mcmail.com

Harald "Sack' Ziegler/ id/---K7
Our favorite German goofball gives us a verbal greeting. Check out his new Sack und Blumm material.Nice stuff.
info@haraldsackziegler.de

Neurmison/ To Which It Beats/---CD
Some good Marilyn Manson meets Iron Butterfly grooviness here and although a few songs go on too long there is a snarliness and crust I like.

Eggomatic/ Spring Of The Sad Guitar Player/Semper Lofi CD
A home taper duet for real drums, collage samples, keyboards, assorted guitars and a freewheeling atmosphere of experimentation.Hats off to MJB and Scott Carr.
mbowman@advinc.com

Stephen Phelps/ Flame Of Love/---CD
Acoustic folk that drives hard and sincere. Good slide guitar and string sounds.
sphelps@3wave.com

Rob Christensen/ Sleep With Me/Sweet Science CD
Mr. C comes at you with a lot of different sounds on his various releases. On this one, he mines the very fruitful Replacements/Husker Du territory in much the same way home taper Russ Stedman does. Good rockin.
robc@northcoast.com




Moonbabies/ Microphone Academy/ Best Kept Secret CD
Swedens indie sensation with a memorable instrumental. This is from a brand new compilation on Italys Best Kept Secret label.
acrestani@telemar.it

2 Days Straight/ Papa Outlaw Rider/---CD
Some ball bustin bar room rock and blues going on here.

Ras Al Ghul/ Qual/UWU CD
Groovin and percussive instrumental from Mick Magics new compilation on United World Underground. Many fine tracks for space rock freaks.
magic@uwunderground.fsnet.co.uk

Orange Cake Mix/ Way Out There/ Twilight Furniture CD
Home taper Jim Rao with some spacey home psych sounds. Lots of instrumentals but this one is a vocal, and nice.
twilight_furniture@hotmail.com

Ms. Sherbourne pleads and moans and strums her guitar.All in lo fi splendor.
kawtapes@hotmail.com

Bill Retoff/ id/---K7

Chugging and gurgling space sounds with the nitrous vocals by the legendary Mr Clinger. A very good mail music collaboration.
clinger@duq.edu

4-5 PM

Bret Hart/ Walrus/ Instrumen Tales CD
Gnarly guitar and vocal depths that sound like the batteries are in sideways. From the super prolific Mr. Hart, a long time taping vet.
hipworks@interpath.com

Tenboy/ Face It All/ Shotgun Charlie CD
More crisply done pop rock from this talented Englishman. I dig this guys voice and songs. Formerly TEN, now Tenboy.
dean@shotguncharlie.co.uk



Ajiao/ Unstable Banjos/ KAW K7
Lo fi pop folk and although this guys name is Pascal it sounds like it should be Peter or something american like that. From your lo fi headquarters, KAW tapes.
kawtapes@hotmail.com

Funkmeister G/ Banana/---CD
This is some seriously messed up and extremely lo fi Aussie weirdness featuring out of tune and badly played instruments and similarly sung songs. His take on Im Waiting For The Man is pretty funny. This one will completely irritate your friends, even the ones who say they like independent music.
chunky_yet_funky@hotmail.com

Scheller-Menichetti-Gray-Campau/Doowackadoo/---CD
This is our rather humorous take on goofball country dedicated to Roger Miller.
squidcat@hotmail.com

Bubble/ Steer The Wheel/ Oomph CD
Another great song from this terrific rock/pop CD. Lots of influences we could talk about but its just damn good catchy material. Excellent production too.
dave@bubbleland.com

BB2X4/ How Can I Swim/ TTT CD
KD Schmitz asked some home tapers to send vocal samples and then he wrote some songs using them. Inventive, short and sweet pieces.
TTThings@aol.com

ScapeLand Wish/ Absence Of God/---CD
Production values and musicianship abound on this self produced CD of AOR type rock with some new agey instrumentals. They have got their harmonies down.

Klimperei/ Il Faut.../Organic CD
Petite and charming pieces from this prolific French duo. Carnival for the mind.
org_land@club-internet.fr

Other People's Children/ Electricity, Your Friend/Best Kept Secret K7
Instrumentals dominate this home cassette. It doesnt blow me away but grows on me. The usual keyboards/ drium machiney line up pretty tastefully done.
acrestani@telemar.it




Saturnia/ A Trick Of The Light/---CD
A swirling world beat and ethnic ride from these very talented Portuguese musicians. Mixing in the modern sounds with some rock and jazzish too.Fine.
saturnia@mail.telepac.pt

Dave Fuglewicz/ id/---K7
A nice promo from Jupiter from this electronic musician.
davefugle@mindspring.com

Automatic Music/ Do The Math/ Szum CD
A whole lot of experimenting on this two CD set. Some of it very good and some a little rambling. More sticks than doesnt.

Jliat/ track 3/---CD
Well, Mr Jliat finally makes another CD that one can at least hear. He pulls some weird backwards stuff out of the archives and also a fluttery Terry Riley type piece.
james@jliat.demon.co.uk

Amy Denio/ Saiko IV,Skirts,Birds/ Unit Circle CD
I cant say it enough...I love this damn CD! Its a soundtrack to a dance performance, Tattoo but stands alone easily as a breakthrough set for the highly regarded Ms. Denio. Strange japanese speakers, drones, accordions and more.
kevin@unitcircle.com

Matt Borghi/ December Impressions/---CD
Floaty and sensual instrumentals good for late night or early morning moods.

Francisco Lopez/ Untitled #92/ Mego LP
Incredible LP of scratchy loopiness. It sounded like we were off the air.
franciscolopez@csi.com

Francisco Lopez-Michael Northam/ Belle Confusion 0247/Absolute CD
Amazing sound immersion duets although you tell me whos doing what.
franciscolopez@csi.com

Promo from this Bay Area musician.
bert_morgan@hotmail.com

Garlic/ Wheel Set/ Propylactic CD
Great song, an almost perfect single( and superb full length CD) , from a distinctive UK line up with a vocalist that sounds in between Thurston Moore and Neil Young with a tasty keyboard and even a pedal steel. What more could you want ? One of 01s best so far.
nick@garlicmusic.co.uk




Michael Angel/ The Enchanted Realm/ Deep Blue CD
Some grandisose tech-emo from Atlanta. Good use of overdubbed vocals.
www.deep-blueRecords.com


The Conspiracy/ Psycho/---CD
This UK studio rock and pop outfit finds some new life and direction in this uptempo guitar and found sound workout.Very cool.
conspiracyare@hotmail.com

Heather Perkins/ id/---K7

Eggomatic/ Commodore 64/ Semper Lo Fi CD
Here, our hero, MJB emotes and kindles some home taping memories. Oh ,cry for me you early samplers. With his pal, Scott.

Al Perry/ Little By Little, id/ Addled CD,--- K7
This frigging tune wouldnt leave my head for the whole week after I aired it. Talk about tasty and good humored. Almost better than Haagen Daaz Chocolate Almond. Bonus points for pedal steel.
alperry003@hotmail.com

Fish Karma/ Poodlecide/ Deep Shag CD
Hurray for this anti pet rant. Dont you wish your cats/dogs would just pack up and leave sometimes? Im pissed because my cats ripped up the sides of my record albums with their scratching post claws. Im so happy Fish is back. I missed his wit.
michael@deepshag.com

Cowtown/ Ghost Story/---K7
One of my favorite tunes from Peter Tonks newest tape. Here he gets all introspective in his poetic way with a solo acoustic guitar back up. Moody and nice.
petertonks87@hotmail.com


Sideswipe/ Crucify Me/---CD
Maybe its just me, but that big Heart sound and the charged guitars do me big time. They take it in their own way, upbeat all the way. Another excellent hook and single candidate.



David Dondero/ Boulevard Of Broken Dreams.../---CD
Edgy folk, wordy as all get out and with a vision. Ill bet this guy has hitch hiked.Playing dixie on the harmonica too.
skott_c@yahoo.com

BB2X4/ Washed Up/ TTT CD
Goofy and creative, thats My Schmitz in a nutshell. In fact, hes in a nutshell with his home taper pals carving out the weird vocals.
Neat way to build a tune, tres experimentale.
TTThings@aol.com

Monochromatic/ World Of Wonder/ FDR K7
Lo fi strumming and tinkly keys intertwine with what sounds like a noseflute. Tres tres.
bnoring@webtv.net


Sweet Venus/ Angel Of The Lamp/---CD
The very nice vocals of Angela Smith are a bit buried during this dramatic outpouring but the track is energized by the sum of its parts.Dance to the minor key moodiness.
individual35@hotmail.com


Spun/ Playground/---CD
The large rock format with the verse chorus trip done to a tee by this Bay Area band. They have a live sound and a hookiness I go for.
spinonspun@yahoo.com

Kevin Campau/ id/---K7
Thanks, son. No, you will not be kicking my ass anytime soon.

Trespassers W/ Laan Der Meerdervoort/ Snowdonia CD
Swing time is in effect from one of the worlds great modern bands. So many styles, so many ways to be interesting. Think Dan Hicks in Dutch this time. Tonk u well.
trespassersw@hotmail.com

The Lune/ We Are Rich/---CD
Balls to the wall brass and roll drums. Everyone is amped throughout most of this CD and on this track, the accordion feeds them all a dime bag.
marcijoy@earthlink.net



4-5 PM
Ken Clinger/ Starlight Auras/ Bovine CD
Bold classical overtones dominate this excellent track from Kens 50th solo release. This doesnt count all of his collaborations, compilations, best-ofs, re-issues and whatnots. So, what have you done lately?

Bored Young Men/ id/---K7
Ken and soul brethren Beeg Srahka promo.

Ellen Miz Elle and Ken Clinger/ Birds 2/ Bovine CD
Story time collaboration in a matter of fact way with Ms. Elle.

Shifting two chord Kiwi rock with ample confusion and delight.
From a compilation on the Best Kept Secret tape label.
acrestani@telemar.it

Bret Hart/ Marcel Duchamp/ Instrumen Tales CD
Distant sounding live band sound from the venerable Mt Hart, home taping vet. Bret puts his guitar up front where it should be.
hipworks@interpath.com

The 4 Johns/ track 9/---CD
Stoner jamming with gargled vocals. Save me some.

Phil Rhoden/ Surfink/ Reverse Fish CD
Not as much surf as I thought or wanted but this British instrumental provider takes us along for another keyboard and rhythm tour. Always doing something different.
philrhoden@hotmail.com

Chowpilot/ One Chance/ KAW K7
That classic easy goin Searchers era Brit invasion sound. Very smooth even though its a home recording. Tasty stuff all the way. I dont get their name however.
kawtapes@hotmail.com


Timo/ It All Makes Sense/ Best Kept Secret K7
The rollercoaster of life seems to be going up finally for this unique and sometimes angry songwriter. He is probably also the very best accompanying guitarist in the home taping tent.
Great words,as always.
acrestani@telemar.it
Eye/ Perspective/ United World Underground CD
Ear catching beat busting Aussie clump of a track turning it all into a big delicious mess in the end. Mick Magics UWU compilation.
magic@uwunderground.fsnet.co.uk

Anthony Distefano/ A Cure/---CD
Soothing keyboards would be good for a rainy morning.
adistefano@msn.com


Mr Bollinger/ Dream Of The New God/ Yippiebean CD
Experimental track from this diverse Australian. Quite a wonderful, zany and political full length too.

Daniel Steven Crafts/ Soap Opera Suite/ Lutra LP
A cool album of split second soap opera edits.

Ken Clinger/ Radio/ Bovine CD
What do you say about one of home tapings icons? The prolific Mr C continues to churn out the atmospheric tunes.
clinger@duq.edu

Al Perry/ id/ ---K7
A fun promo by this blues/country rock guitar slinger.
alperry003@hotmail.com

Spun/ Geek/ ---CD
Nice, tight energetic rock from this California trio.
spinonspun@yahoo.com

Motion Control/ Part one, track 2/---CD
Charged up, messed up, rhythmic workout with breaks.
jamie.ballinger@grandamedia.com



Jes/ Dont Say/---CD
Real hooky female rock pop vocalizing and strong dynamic production values highlight this one.
jesbrieden@aol.com

Tim Chaplin/ Hayleys Hurt My Feelings/ Best Kept Secret K7
Trashy, distorted guitars overwhelm the distanced shoe gazer vocals. A stew pot of keyboards, drum machine and home taper headings. This one is on that great Italian cassette label, Best Kept Secret.
acrestani@telemar.it

The Mansions/ Brave New World/ ---CD
Flashy, stage ready presentation cooks up some Alice Cooper and mixes with some Bauhaus. All thats missing is the lights.


Lord Litter/id/---K7
Our favorite German DJ with a promo. Danke mein lieber.

Sideswipe/ Bribery/---CD
Bright sized pop rocks with that tambourine that I love.
Very hook conscious, excellent single material.


Kris Novak/ Tractorbeam Accident/ Best Kept Secret K7
Power psych pop with vocals so buried they will need an expedition party. Very trippy chaos.
acrestani@telemar.it

Sweet Venus/ The Messenger/---CD
This British trio also creams over the vocals a bit too much too but they have a hell of a cool sound. Trip hoppin all the way home.
individual35@hotmail.com

Kudra/ Push/---CD
Pounding, dramatic performance with loner singer emoting through the build up. Once again, fine indie production.



The Groovers/ Holdin On/ Echobeat CD
Feedback gobs onto some acoustic underneath guitar and moody keys. This is excellent , no drums, Italo-psych.

Bill Retoff/ id/---K7
Achtung, this is home taper Bill Retoff.

Michael Perlitch/ Edge Of Sky/---CD
Think Ben Folds Five with a touch of Billy Joel and a dash of
chorus arena rock. Some nice drums and a sincere approach make this fun. Damn good turnaround and bridge.

Sourvein/ Salvation/ Game Two CD
Full volume southern stomp Blue Cheer revivalists maybe had too much beer.


Linda Smith/ Re-enactment/---CD
Lindas writing partner on this one is none other than our 16th President, Honest Abe. She works it up into an odd patriotic melange that includes her signature bittersweet vocals.
misssmith@att.net


Sack and Doc Wor Mirran/ Taschenspeigel/ Marginal Talent 3 CD
A sweet bit of Sackdom with backers Doc Wor Mirran. Haradld rants a bit more than usual in this short mini EP that resembles a CD. Cool.
DOC WOR MIRRAN
docwormirran@empty.de



4-5 PM
Fish Karma/ Thighs Of Tammy Faye/ Deep Shag CD
Gruffy satirist gets hot for Tammy Fake Baker. Forgive him Lord, he has sinned.
Deep Shag
michael@deepshag.com

Cowtown/ Wanted Man/---K7
Mr Tonks almost gives up a ballad here, opting for a slow, moody acoustic number with ( I think) Mr Dino DiMuro sitting in. Tonks toots his harmonica too in his word poetry paste up viewfinder of life.
petertonks87@hotmail.com



Kevin Campau/ id/---K7
The kid now wants to kick my ass?

Earwig Spectre/ Kiss Kiss/---K7
This demented song stylist covers a Yoko tune here, evidently a studio outtake that is pretty grotesque and creepy fun.
earwigspectre@hotmail.com


Tidal Flood/ 7 Tide/---CD
Ripping hot Greek instrumental trio plows through some fats psych rock. Great playing.
info@tidalflood.com

Ray Carmen/ id/---K7
The king of home taper pop graces us with a promo.

Fernando/ Kurdts Spirit.../---K7
I get the feeling I am right there in Fernandos Argentine apartment with him as he dicks around with his fuzz and bass licks. It is so free and unpretentious and absolutely no posing. This is real, not always coherent and never polished. Thank god for the next generation.


Anthony DiStefano/ Vambido/---CD
Instrumental stylings out of Brooklyn, soundtrack overtones to most of Mr DiStefanos tone poems.
adistefano@msn.com

Jon Sheffield/ Antarctica/ Tomlab CD
Outstanding jangly, loopy subliminal instrumental tweakdom.
info@tomlab.de

Hinds Bros./Scene One, 420 Haight Street/ Omnisonic CD
Hard driving techno sounds point in a new direction for those Sun Ra loving brothers from the Bay Area. I sort of miss Peters drums but they set a mean pattern and John overlays some bubblinb, brooding and busty keyboards. Take a toke on Haight. Got any spare change, man?
omnisonic@webtv.net


Non Earl/ The Shadow Edit/---CD
Spooky and grand keyboards figure prominently on this instrumental from this UK musician.
philrhoden@hotmail.com

Pauline Oliveros/ Alien Bog/ Pogus CD
Beautfiful, early rarity from an american pioneer of electronic music.
pogal@pogus.com
