  • Hello Matt, another great show and thank you for playing my requests. Next Sunday, how’s about a song or two from this list :

    Peter Murphy – Crystal Wrists
    Chameleons – Singing Rule Britannia
    Section 25 – Knew Noise
    Joy Division – Komakino
    Underviewer – A Minor Detail

    One more thanks for playing Cabaret Voltaire’s “Ghost Talk” – a timeless classic and still one of my all-time favorites.

  • Andre

    Awesome show!

    Please play The Cure – Up to the Sky next week for me.

    Thanks in advance.

  • Andre

    Hey Matt, huge fan. Got some requests for good music that deserves a spot:

    London After Midnight – Spider and the Fly
    Christian Death – Romeo’s Distress
    The Cure – Doubt

  • Andre

    Hey Matt, great show last night. Please try to get these into this week’s set. Thanks!

    London After Midnight – Spider and the Fly

    The Cure – Doubt

    Christian Death – Romeo’s Distress

  • Gareth

    If you want to blow a few minds, play All The Wrong People Are Dying by The Styrenes. I remember hearing it on the radio late one night/early one morning and I was mesmerised.

  • William

    Enjoyed the mix last week as usual.

    How about a song from, in no particular order:
    • Anything from the Field of the Nephilim’s Elizium album
    • Milk Cult: Psychoanalytwist
    • Damon Edge: I’m A Gentleman
    • Area: With Louise
    • Tuxedo Moon: No Tears
    • Shriekback: Clear Trails
    • Hawaiian Pups: Baby Judy (a weird, slightly campy song)
    • Area: With Louise
    • Sisters of Mercy: Valentine

  • Willard

    I love DM’s Death Door. To my knowledge this original form never did appear anywhere other than The End of the World soundtrack.

  • Michael Carruth

    Look forward to your show every week! Always an amazing playlist. Here are a couple of requests if you can get to them.
    Legendary Pink Dots – Black Zone (or) Golden Dawn
    Tear Garden – Ophelia
    The The – Flesh and Bones
