  • Thanks for another great show. Always look forward to Sunday night.

    For next week:

    Siouxsie and the Banshees – Overground
    Red Lorry Yellow Lorry – Nothing Wrong
    The Smiths – Handsome Devil
    Kraftwerk – Trans-Europe Express (fun fact – Joy Division played this song before every show to get them into the zone)

  • Rick Parker

    Great show. I have some more tracks for next week. Thanks as always.

    Dead Can Dance – “Ullyses” (The Serpent’s Egg)
    The Church – “Terra Nova Cain” (Gold Afternoon Fix)
    Depeche Mode – “Rush” (Songs Of Faith and Devotion)
    Gary Numan – “Metal” ( The Pleasure Principle)

  • Love the show! Here’s two artists that are not known as Dark Wave artists, but have tracks that certainly fit the bill:

    Tears For Fears – “Ideas As Opiates”
    Jon Astley – “Suffering Fools”

    Not to mention a couple of personal favourites:

    Ministry – “Angel”
    Gene Loves Jezebel – “Scheming”


  • Aphotic Empyrean

    Playlist looks great. I will listen to the show today at work.

  • I feel like I’ve said this a few times, but really, last nights show was the best ever ! Thank you for playing my requests – even seems like you played some ones I’ve requested in the past. Also just an overall excellent mix of tunes plus “Surfin’ Dead” by the Cramps ? Been a LONG time since I’ve heard that classic – thanks for playing it. OK on to suggestions for next week :

    Peter Murphy – I’ve Got A Miniature Secret Camera
    Meat Beat Manifesto – Placebo
    Pink Turns Blue – Walking On Both Sides
    New Order (Peel Sessions) – Too Late (or Turn the Heater On)

  • Marko

    Thanks so much for playing “Heartland” Matt! Early Sisters is best Sisters!

    Suggestions for next week’s show:
    The Cure – “Charlotte Sometimes”
    Grauzone – “Eisbaer”

    • Agreed on Sisters if Mercy…requested “Train” recently (success !)…their early stuff is the best. Gonna request “Burn” soon, but what I really want to hear is the b-side of 12″ single Body and Soul – the awesome, best version of “Body Electric”…so much better than the original on Some Girls Wander… (hint hint, Matt) ;)

  • Burney

    Thanks for the Birthdayest Birthday Party song. Yeah, that takes me back. Great show. Especially enjoyed the Tuxedo Moon track.

    For next week, maybe Iron Curtain ‘Like A Family’ off Desertion. I’d second the request for Rush by Depeche Mode. Thanks again for doing this show

  • Christine

    Great show Matt! I listen on demand every Monday at work and it starts the week off right.

    Thanks for the Summerhead :)

    Agree with the request for Rush by DM!

  • Nortley

    “Atrocity Exhibition” – Joy Divison
    “Lie To Me” – Depeche Mode
    “Homesick” – The Cure
    “Faded Flowers” – Shriekback

  • Yet another bland ,boring and predictable show.

  • Great show!

    I’d like to request:
    Kangaroo by This Mortal Coil.

    Hi Matt. Great show. It’s my 49th birthday next Monday and I’d love to hear:
    Australian Crawl -“Reckless”
    Lime Spiders-“Weirdo Libido”
    Smog-“Everything is Under Contol”
    All 4 are great Aussie bands that I don’t recall hearing on your show before.
    Cheers mate!

  • Hey Matt,

    I think here might be an error with the Ultravox song in hour 3. It doesn’t match with what I’m hearing on Spotify. Can you please confirm, because it’s such a great track and I’d like to put it on my personal playlist.

    Thanks so much and I’m looking forward to the next show and your response!
