Joe Belock will have the Dexateens on Three Chord Monte to play their blend of hard rock, Southern rock, punk rock, pensive songwriting, and all this. He terms them a Southern-rock answer to MC5; a video of one of their great songs is here. Tuesday 6/8, 12 noon to 3 PM.
Later on Tuesday, Ryan Martin of Dais Records is visiting Brian Turner -- they will discuss the evolution and future of cassette culture, playing myriad found tapes that boast varying degrees of weirdness. Listen and be educated on 6/8 from 3 to 6 PM.
Sabbath Assembly strive to update the message of 1960s cult the Process Church of the Final Judgment. They come to John Allen's web show on Wednesday, when members Jex Thoth and Dave Nuss (also of the No-Neck Blues Band) introduce tracks recorded at WFMU and preview songs from the project, "Restored To One," forthcoming this month. 6/9, 6 to 9 AM (web only).
OPPONENTS, the Brooklyn-based live electronics project, join William Berger on Wednesday night. Hear here why their music resists being defined as "psychedelia" or "PE" or "noise," instead bringing in elements of all these and then some. Wm. Berger presents My Castle of Quiet, 6/9 from 8 to 11 PM.
Billy Jam hosts the 4th annual Graffiti Special on Put the Needle on the Record, Friday 6/11 from 3 to 6 PM. Listen to conversations with 5Pointz gallery curator Meres-One and other NY and NJ crew members, photojournalists and filmmakers who have documented graffiti history, and more.
Very late Friday night, aka Saturday morning 6/12 from 2 to 6 AM, Nat Roe's entire show will be a rummage through the obscure German music a Berliner friend gave him on a recent visit. There'll be synth pop, hardcore, industrial, NDW, and other stuff "only the Germans could think up." (He is excited about it.)
Tinariwen, the Saharan Tuareg guitar band, played at the Bell House; Rob Weisberg and WFMU were there! The broadcast of this electrifying live performance can be heard on Transpacific Sound Paradise Saturday 6/12, from 6 to 9 PM.
Here's something I liked last week: Evan "Funk" Davies played "Smoke" by Howlies, who are from Atlanta and whose sing-alongable debut Trippin' With Howlies (on OverUnder Records, produced by Kim Fowley) blew out my laptop speakers all last summer. I missed them when they came to town again recently, but hope they return soon.
