  2. Really enjoyed the tunes this week, Matt! Really enjoyed the The The and Curve choices.

    Here are a couple of possible requests for a future DW –

    New Order – Truth (Peel Sessions version)
    For Against – Shine

    Thanks as always!

  3. Great stuff tonight, loved the Ministry! With Sympathy may be Al’s “sell out” album, but it has great songs! I will counter with a request for “The Missing”

  4. Excellent show tonight, some choice tunes for these turbulent times. Suggestions for next week:

    Stiff Little Fingers – Suspect Device
    X-Ray Spex – Art-I-Ficial
    T.S.O.L. – Die for Me

    Hey Matt,

    Great Show last night…

    For next week can you please play one or more of the following:

    Cocteau Twins- Amelia
    The Cure- Plainsong
    Dead Can Dance- Mesmerism
    Ride- Nowhere

  8. Don’t think you’ve ever played this one Matt. First Last for Everything by Endgames.


  9. Great show. Hard to decide whether Hour 1 or Hour 3 took the prize. Hour 2 wasn’t a slouch either. Particularly loved the Wire and And The Trees cuts. Thanks.

    Dug up a copy of Nevilluxury’s Feels Like Dancing Wartime. Please consider playing either “Dragon” or “Welcome” for an upcoming show. I’ll probably pester you for other cuts off it at a later date.

    Thanks again for doing this show. It’s great this music has another chance to get airplay.

  10. Matt Thank you, thank you, thank you!
    Loved hearing Skin Deep on the radio again! What a surprise.
    I have a request.
    “Just Give Em’ Whiskey” by Colourbox.

    Never Stop Matt!

  11. AWESOME – Phillip Boa & The Voodooclub on the show!! Saw them live in their early years. Reminded me of those times – Thank you for bringing back those memories, Matt!!!
    On this note: Could you probably play “There Is No Love Between Us Anymore” by Pop Will Eat Itself, please?

  12. Vicious episode.

    This week’s Darkness Award:
    Vicious Pink, “Fetish”

    Request for future show:
    Umo Detic, “Fahrenheit”
