  1. Can you play “Hall of Mirrors” by Kraftwerk for next Sunday’s “Dark Wave,” as a tribute to the late Florian Schneider? Thanx!

  2. I am happy Dark Wave is back on tonight!! Great episode tonight!

  3. Kerstrien

    Hi, I’d love to hear Danielle Dax. Pariah.

  4. Can you play Cuts You Up by Peter Murphy next week?

  5. Never thought I’d hear Ethyl Meatplow here. Or ever again. Thanks for playing them. Also thanks for the Neon Judgement and another great show.

    For next week, maybe ‘Moans’ by Parade Ground (off Cut Up I think?)

    Again, thanks for the show. Stay healthy.

  6. Nice tributes to both Dave Greenfield and Florian Schneider, two more gut punches in 2020! Real pioneers, one and all. You can hear their influence throughout your set tonight.

  7. For next week

    Joy Division- Autosuggestion
    The Sound – Desire
    Alien Sex Fiend – Now I m feeling Zombified
    New Order – Everything’s Gone Green
    Siouxsie And The Banshees – Israel

  8. Phil Bellios

    Wonderful show Matt!! What an amazing set list! Thank you for playing “Homsick” by the Cure for the first time and “A Rush And Push And The Land is Ours” by the Smiths.

  9. Ah thanks for using my request to end the show. Well like a lot of people on here have expressed I’ve been listening to a lot of Kraftwerk lately too. My only request this time is Kraftwerk’s “Computer Love.” If you got the original German version that would just be superb. Thanks for playing my Depeche Mode request as well.

  10. Great show tonight. I’m so happy you continue to do the show and update the site Matt! Thank you

  11. Bauhaus- “Third Uncle”
    March Violets -“Snake Dance”
    The Smiths – “Sleep”

  12. Great show, as always. Thanks for playing Red Lorry Yellow Lorry. Also, that Thrill Kill Kult song is one of best.

  13. Brandon Fisher

    Love and Rockets – Rain

  14. Great choices for the tributes, Matt! Also enjoyed the For Against choice!

    Here are a couple of requests for a possible DW –

    Gang of Four – Call Me Up
    PiL – Rules and Regulations

    Thanks as always!

  15. Krafty episode.

    This week’s Darkness Award:
    Kraftwerk, “Europe Endless”

    RIP Florian Schneider

    Request for future show:
    Revolting Cocks, “Cattle Grind”

  16. I’d love to hear Christian Death’s “Spiritual Cramp” and/or The March Violets’ “Religious as Hell”

  17. Great show Matt!
    Thanks a million for playing “The Mercy Seat” – much appreciated!
    Nice selection to celebrate those musical pioneers that are no longer with us – RIP lads!

  18. Matt loved the variety this week.
    Please consider next week:
    Love Spit Love how soon is now
    Ian McCulloch lover lover lover
    Catherine Wheel i want to touch you

  19. Hopefully not too late to get this suggestion in, but how about “Man On The Silver Mountain” by His Name Is Alive to commemorate the 10th anniversary of Ronnie James Dio’s death?

  20. For all the f-ed up children in this world, we could use a little Spacemen 3! Keep us the good work, Matt. And turn this into a full-time channel already.

  21. How about a playlist one week made up of all the bands only playing covers…?

  22. Rob Macey

    Hi Matt,
    Can you play M.E. By Gary Numan. Dark lyrics. Love that song and mood.

  23. Brian Tuttle

    Ethyl Meatplow, “Queenie” (Happy Days, Sweetheart)
    Got all tingly inside when played. Different version no?
    Carla moves along with Geraldine Fibbers, Scarnella.
