Drunk Mums, Los Wild and Johnny Hernandez
Saturday, July 27th, 3pm - 6pm
on
Todd-o-phonic Todd's show
You’d be hard pressed to find someone that’s into rock and roll and not into a Drunk Mums record. It’s well written, raw and most importantly free of pretension. In essence what they do is straight up Aussie rock and roll reminiscent of The Saints with a contemporary garage slant and an enthusiasm to match in the live setting. Catch the action at Elsewhere on 7/25 and The Saint in Asbury Park on 7/26.

Madrid's Los Wilds boast that there "sound is loaded with Fuzz, reverb and lyrics full of perversion. Dirty and greasy garage all touched irresponsibly and without brakes with a single premise: DO NOT TAKE PRISONERS!". Their live fury will be unleashed at The Coney Island Music Festival on July 20th and on Todd's show the following week.

At age 15 Johnny Hernandez started singing with his brother Jose's band, Little Joe and The Latinaires. By the time he was 17 Johnny was a full fledged member and sang lead on their classic hit "Por Un Amor". With both The Latinaires and Johnny Y La Familia, Johnny has been a major pioneer of Tejano music. Johnny will be performing at Look At My Soul: The Latin Shade Of Texas Soul at Lincoln Center July 27th at 6 p.m..


Hash Redactor
Tuesday, July 30th, 9pm - Midnight
on
Burn It Down! with Nate K.
With a hazy, cacophonous twin-guitar interplay anchored by a lockstep rhythm section and lyrics that take direct aim, but also throw an arched brow, at the messy state of the world, Hash Redactor represent an exciting evolution of the "new weird Memphis" sound. Featuring members of Nots and Ex-Cult, the band drop by the show to play songs from their new album "Drecksound."


Cate Le Bon
Friday, August 2nd, 9am - Noon
on
Radio Ravioli with Olivia

Personality Cult and Bajo Mundo
Monday, August 5th, Noon - 3pm
on
Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock
After the sinister synth-punk of Natural Causes and the garage rock of Last Year's Men, Ben Carr's latest project out of North Carolina is Personality Cult, a Buzzcocks/Marked Men-inspired stab at power pop/punk with razorwire hooks that will have you instantly pogo-ing.

Bajo Mundo (not the Salvadoran hip-hop group) is a new band including Jota and Pepe of Three Chord Monte faves Los Vigilantes, the garage-punk maniacs from San Juan.


Warm Drag
Wednesday, August 7th, 9pm - Midnight
on
The Evan "Funk" Davies Show
Los Angeles duo Warm Drag features noisy and chaotic samples created and manipulated by Paul Quattrone (Modey Lemon, !!!, Oh Sees) and the dreamy vocals of Vashti Windish (Golden Triangle, K-Holes). They’re appearing at Meltasia in the Catskills on Saturday August 3 and at Our Wicked Lady in Brooklyn on Sunday the 4th. Tune in Wednesday night August 7th between 9pm and midnight for their live set on WFMU!

Tammy Faye Starlite
Monday, August 12th, Noon - 3pm
on Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock

Tammy is an expert at simultaneously entertaining, enticing, confounding, provoking and captivating an audience. She started with her pseudo-Christian country star persona before moving on to masterfully inhabit the character of luminaries ranging from Nico to Mick Jagger to Debbie Harry. This fall she is re-launching her acclaimed Marianne Faithfull 'Broken English' show at Pangea and brings a preview performance to WFMU.
