  • Xtina

    Would like to hear “Dear Heart” by the Cocteau Twins next Sunday.

  • Mat Gillespie

    I second DeaR Heart by Cocteau! Wasn’t my pick originally but Xtina changed my mind…

    Matt: awesome show! Thanks for playing my AATT and Cures requests.

    Also even though you didn’t play my DCD and Cocteau songs- the ones you did play were outstanding….

    For next week:

    The Cure: M
    Bauhaus: Harry

    MUCH LOVE FOR THE SHOW…. keep it coming

  • Rick Parker


    Sisters Of Mercy – “Lucretia My Reflection” (Floodland)
    The Cure – “If Only Tonight We Could Sleep” (Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me)
    New Order “Sunrise” (Low-Life)

    Love the show. Thanks again.

  • Daniel Turek

    Loved the show. I always hear amazing songs I never new excisted.

  • Jorje

    Nice playlist, but a small correction. Body Electric by The Sisters of Mercy is not on the album First and Last and Always. It was a non-album single later released on the compilation Some Girls Wander By Mistake.

    • I requested the Body and Soul 12″ single version of Body Electric from 1984, which, in my opinion, is much better than the original version of Body Electric. Hey Matt, do you think you could play that version in the next couple of weeks ?

  • Hi Matt,

    Would you play LA Rain by The Rose of Avalanche?

    Thanks a lot!

  • brian

    Thanks for Down in the Park. For next week, maybe “So Young” or “Something’s Burning” from the Stone Roses.

  • glenn

    Can you please never play David Bowie on this show again

  • Matt, thanks for playing the Front 242 and Sisters of Mercy requests. Japan and AATT were nice to hear as well. Just an overall excellent show, filled with tons of favorites – as usual ! For next week, may I suggest something from this list :

    Simple Minds – Sweat in Bullet
    Front 242 – Special Forces
    Cabaret Voltaire – Electro-Motive

  • Damon

    Voice of America- Story of Love (extended).

  • Please play some Kommunity FK sometime in your programming? It is their 40th year anniversary as 1 ov the founders ov Amerikan Deathrock & Goth subkulture. Thank you.
