    Killer set tonite Matt. Many Thanks.

  • Brad A

    Epic Matt. Thanks for The Smiths and Murder Inc. Weekend closed perfectly.

  • Thanks for playing And Also the Trees and Bauhaus. Also enjoyed hearing Rodent by Skinny Puppy – been a while for me hearing that one. For next Sunday, how about :

    Cyberaktif – Meltdown
    New Order – Chosen Time
    Tackhead – Mind at the End of the Tether

  • Maybe I’ll be early enough with a request for next Sunday :) – The Bolshoi pretty please? :) Any song you like.

    • Whoops! I typically stream the show via the SiriusXM app over the course of a few days early in the week and just go through Hour 2 and of course heard The Bolshoi on this week’s show so never mind! Thanks for playing that! How about next week some early Gene Loves Jezebel Promises. One more idea – Brian Eno Baby’s On Fire. Thanks!

  • For this week’s eclipse you’ve got to play something from Bauhaus’ The Sky’s Gone Out – maybe Silent Hedges. Thanks!

  • Sorry – just saw you did that this past week. Thanks – Ho about Our Daughter’s Wedding – Lawn Chairs?

  • Charles Gilliland

    Great set! I just found your show on Sirius and will be sure to listen Sundays or thereafter.

  • One other idea just popped to mind as I was listening to Rodney’s show this week he played Fuzzbox. Reminded me I hadn’t listened to Danielle Dax in a long time. Maybe too poppy? But if you’re open to it maybe play Dannielle Dax Big Hollow Man or Cathouse?

  • Patrick

    Great show as always!
    Cover Your Face- Louderbach!

  • For next week, how’s about Piggy In The Mirror from the Cure?
