Got a request? To be considered for next week, drop it in the comments below by noon Tuesday.





  1. Another awesome show tonight Matt. Considerations for next week:

    Collide – Violets Dance
    Sunshine Blind – their cover of Flock of Seagulls “I Ran”

  2. Thanx for playing Kate Bush on tonite’s Dark Wave! Can you dig up “Never Come Back” by Kas Product for next Sunday’s show? Again, thanx!

  3. Great show. I’d love to hear The Scientists “Burnout”. Thanks.

  4. Thanks for another great show!
    For next/future show, how about:
    David Bowie – Love is Lost (Hello Steve Reich/ James Murphy remix)
    Chris Connelly- Detestimony III

  5. Thanks for playing Cindytalk! This was a particularly good playlist this week, loved all the shoegaze! Some suggestions for next week:

    Numb – The Hanging Key
    Will – Furnace Rekindled
    Nature & Organization – Bloodstreamruns

  6. Great show and very excellent shoegaze block.

    I must have slipped into a parallel universe because in the universe where we all should exist, Reverberation never happened.

  7. Terence Davis

    Cocteau Twins and Anne Clark and Love And Rockets all in one radio show! Three of the four greatest bands on the planet all in one night?!? I must’ve time-traveled back to my dorm room in 1986! Thank you!

  8. I forgot about “reverberation”. I actually think I have the CD buried around here someplace.
    A great ending to my weekend, thanks

    P.S. I can’t believe you’ve been doing this for 8 years, time really flies! Here’s to another 8!

  9. Catherine Wheel!? Love xxxx

  10. Matt, another incredible show last night! “Red Light” is one of my all time favorites by Siouxsie.

    I have a couple of requests for next week if time permits:

    Public Image Ltd. – Banging the Door
    Wire – I Should Have Known Better

    Thanks again for such a great show.


  11. Michel Chioini

    Another GREAT show :-)

    What about “I Dig You” from Cult Hero (The Cure) ?

    Greetings from Montreal !

  12. Great show. Hour 2 was my favorite, but the others were pretty solid as well.

    Maybe next week: Crank Call Love Affair “What’s Wrong Yvette?”

    Thanks. Have a great one.

  13. Great Kate Bush drop!

    For your consideration next weekend: Gary Numan’s rendition of “On Broadway”


  14. Was waiting for Lycia to pop up. Would love to hear Ionia.
    Really anything from the projekt.

  15. holly johnson

    Thanks for playing my request and all over the other great songs!

  16. Enjoyed the deep cuts this week, Matt!

    Here are a couple of requests for next week’s DW –

    Depeche Mode – A Question of Time
    And, if possible, maybe something from The Cramps, as it would have been Lux’s birthday on 10/21.

    Thanks as always!

  17. Douglas McLaren

    Thanks for playing South of No North.

    How about:

    M.I.N.E–Things We’ve Done
    The Wild Swans–Revolutionary Spirit


  18. Eric the Red

    Dug Kate Bush, and M.E.’s After the Snow a few weeks back. Digging deep. How about Sex Beat by Sex Beat when you can squeeze it in?

  19. Truly a gift you have Matt compiling such amazing sets.
    Rabid- The Damned
    “Liked” the suggestions above.

  20. Here’s one out of left field – any chance you have (and could play) the original version of “Motorbike” by SHEEP ON DRUGS from their debut album “Greatest Hits”? I haven’t heard that in over 20 years. Thanks Matt!!

  21. Divine episode.

    This week’s Darkness Award:
    Ministry, “The Angel”

    THE very definition of a perfect song.

  22. Shoegaze plays were amazing this week Matt. Would love to hear Alive (For once in my lifetime) by The Furs.

  23. Constantine

    Could I request The Cure “Just One Kiss”
    please Matt



  24. Also, if possible, perhaps a tune from The Damned, in celebration of Dave Vanian’s birthday (10/12). Thanks!

  25. Matt, I’d love to hear “S. Day II.” by Pink Turns Blue. Thanks for another great show. It always makes Monday a little easier.

  26. Awesome show again Matt. Must play more Lycia please. Saw another request for pink turns blue. What I was gonna request. Thanks.

  27. Thanks so much for the shoegaze set – and for squeezing in some Swervedriver. Hope it turns up as a regular block just like the industrial stuff. Hell of a show all around. Never even heard of Lycia but loved it! And the dueling Echo and the Bunnymen tracks were inspired.

  28. Lance Baker

    Leaether Strip Japanese Bodies

    Thanks for your awesome music. I was always told that this kind of music was terrible!! I told people I was just ahead of the curve!! Evolved

  29. It just keeps getting better and better! Hats off to you for playing Lassigue Bendthaus (have you heard the other AtomTM releases?)I’d love to hear more crossover shoegaze/goth bands!! Suggestions for upcoming shows:

    Halou – Professional (feat. Robin Guthrie) [s/t]
    This Ascension – Columba Aspexit [Sever]
    Attrition – One of these days… [3 arms and a tired cert]
    Cassandra Complex – Oz [Theomania]
    Download – Base metal [Eyes of Stanley Pain]
    Nocturnal Emissions – No separation [Viral Shedding]

  30. Super late to listening to the show this time but still super good! Can you play Passion of Lovers by Bauhaus next time?? Thanks!!!!!
