    Really great show tonight Matt!
    My request for next Sunday is
    A Million Angels by the Severed Heads.

    I wish this song was longer, I can’t find an extended mix.

  • Red Temple Spirits?! No way! I completely forgot about them.

  • Matt ! Thanks for starting the show off with my Front 242 request – awesome ! Great way to start a tremendous show. So many of my favorites in that first hour, too (JD, Sect25, KJ, ACR, MBM and SoM) – damn, what a great first hour. So many other fantastic selections throughout the night, including another of my requests (“The Game”, L&R). Dare I say it ? BEST SHOW EVER ! (feel like I’ve said that before…). OK, on to next week – how about something from this list ?

    Alien Sex Fiend – Lips Can’t Go
    Peter Murphy – Shy
    New Order – Denial
    Gary Numan – Broken
    Echo and the Bunnymen – Never Stop
    Front 242 – Never Stop

    And would you ever consider playing some Yello ? (anything except “Oh Yeah”). C’mon, we all danced to stuff like “Goldrush” and “I Love You” back in the day. How about some “Lost Again” ?

  • Another Great Show!
    Your playing of Rope by NE reminded me of
    A Split Second. I would like to request “Flesh”.
    While I do love “Rigor Mortis”, the 12 in of Flesh is one of my favs.
    As always TY.

  • Mat Gillespie

  • Aphotic Empyrean

    Great Show.

  • Christine

    Thank you thank you!! The version of Kingdom Come you played was gorgeous! I’ve never heard it before…so lush!!
    Thanks for also playing my Anthrax request.
    Great show as always xx

  • Depeche Mode – The Landscape Is Changing
    Joy Division- Transmission (The Peel Sessions Version)
    Love and Rockets – Rain Bird
    Section 25 – Prepare To Live
    Shriekback- All Lined Up

  • What was up with the Squeeze and Billy Bragg songs around the hour 3 mark? I didn’t see them on the list. We’re those played by mistake?

    • Yes, some kind of mistake. Still trying to get an answer how that happened, but it may just be that Sirius XM’s computer system stuck them in there for some reason…

  • Haunted When the Minutes Drag

    Loved hearing MBV and JAMC on same show. But please play Something’s Burning by the Stone Roses!!

  • Brian

    Hi Matt. Can you tell me what remix that is of ACR’s – “Flight”? Where could I find that mix if I wanted to own it? Thanks.

    • Yes, i’d love to know that as well. REALLY cool version. Trying to find it now with no success…

  • Jeremy

    Great show as usual! I would like to hear Ten Ground and Down by Pigface. Thanks!
