    Request for future show:
    Ministry, “We Believe”

  8. I request Meat Beat Manifesto

  9. Neil Carver

    I noticed you credited the live version of “Love Me” by Love and Rockets to an album called “Assorted!”

    I can’t seem to find that anywhere, on any listing of theirs (Discogs, All Music, etc.). I did find a live version of “Love Me” on So aLive, their live album from 2003.

    Is there some super rare, no one knows about live album called Assorted! ?

    • Hi Neil, the live version is from the Canadian Mirror People CD single and was also included in the 5 Albums CD compilation. It is also the same version that was included on the So Alive CD. There are very few Love and Rockets live tracks available, unfortunately, but I would recommend all of those releases.

    • Yes, as Andrew notes, the “Assorted!” compilation is the fifth album in the “5 Albums” box set.

      • Neil Carver

        Thanks, I was wondering if picking up Five Albums is worth it, having all the originals an So aLive.

  10. Have to request No Limit by Front Line Assembly

  11. Hi Matt,
    Great show this week, as usual.

    For an upcoming show, how about Death Cult – “Ghost Dance.”

    Thanks and keep up the excellent programming.

  12. I love your show. I look forward to it weekly and listen to it throughout the week. I would love to hear: Fools-Depeche Mode, My Foolish Friend , Why Is It so Hard-Talk Talk, It Hurts-Lotus Eaters, Shake it Right-Six Sed Red. Anything from DAF album 1st Step to Heaven, Pushing up the Daisies, I cant get enough of you-The Colour Field, Baby I love you so, Breakdown-Colourbox. Thank you
