  • David

    Wire “Ahead” is one of my all-time favorite songs. Thanks! Great Depeche Mode choice too!

  • kimmi

    My request for Sunday is
    My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult – sex on wheels

    Thank you! Great episode.

  • Hi Matt,

    How about Let’s All Go (To the Fire Dances) by the Killing Joke? Thanks!

  • Burney

    Great show. Hadn’t heard CCCP in years.

    Next week could you play ‘Under Ice’ or ‘Warching You Without Me’ off Kate Bush’s Hounds of Love. I always thought her best vocals were on her more depressing songs


  • Great Show! Thank you for the This Mortal Coil. Very excited to get some Deluxe Editions from them this fall.
    Was thinking about Cetu Javu. I wanted to request my favorite, “Situations” the Razormaid Remix. I Miss Razormaid.
    TY as always

  • Hi Matt, another great show and thanks for playing my requests. Here’s some suggestions for next week :

    David J – Stranded Trans Alantic Hotel Nearly Famous Blues
    And Also the Trees – Twilights Pool
    Red Lorry Yellow Lorry – Sometimes
    New Order – Don’t Do It

    Thank you.

    Oh, and how about Sisters of Mercy – Body Electric (but the version on the b-side of Body and Soul)

  • El Arreglardo

    Great show Matt. Guess Nice & Sleazy by the Stranglers didn’t qualify on age (78′)? How about the slow version of going under by the spud boys from the Now it Can Be Told live record? Very cool indeed.

  • William

    How about Big Black’s “Kerosine”?

  • Thanks for playing that Fall track! Some suggestions for next week:

    Disco Zombies – Mary Millington
    Flipper – Life is Cheap
    Morrissey – Ouija Board, Ouija Board
