  1. Loved hearing Nitzer Ebb tonight! Could you play Murderous next week?

  2. Decent but it’s never heavy & dark enuff for me. Where is our industrial channel ;)

  3. Matt Anderson

    How about DaDa by Alice Cooper? An overlooked Goth masterpiece!

  4. How about Murder Music by Renegade Soundwave?

  5. White Rhino- Trans Am

  6. Matt, thanks for playing Smiling Monarchs. for next week, how about something from this list :

    Simple Minds – Theme For Great Cities
    Clan of Xymox – She’s Dangerous
    KMFDM – En Esch
    Front 242 = Headhunter (from Live – Re:Boot)

  7. Mat Gillespie

    Stoked there were balls enuff to drop the 17 minute version of Elegia!!!!

    Brilliant and well represented from us hard core 80’s dark wave fanatics!!!
    Such a bold move….

    Now how about “Advent” from Dead Can Dance? I would be grateful…..

    • Mr Gillespie, I requested Elegia 17.5 last week (see last weeks comments) and Matt actually played it :-) I told him I’d be happy w 5 min version, but would be able to check off my bucket list of getting 17 min version broadcast! I’m so excited!!! Meanwhile, I’ve been trying to figure out how to record it onto my pc, but haven’t had any luck. ideas?
