    Corpus Delicti – Dust and Fire
    The Cure – Charlotte sometimes
    Killing Joke – Empire song

    Just wanted to say thank you for playing The Damned “Shadow of Love”. I had never heard that version before.
    Yet another great show

  6. Human Sexual Response “I put my finger to my tongue, I taste vagina” thanks for bringing back memories of a 6th grade punk rocker (me) singing those lyrics in class and my teacher kicking me out to go see the principle. Ah the good ole days…

  7. Cubanate-“Oxyacetylene”

  8. “The Carnival is Over” –Dead Can Dance

  9. 100% what Aurora said.
    100% Rob with Giant

  10. It was great to hear the humans last night. I used to catch them back in the day in Boston. FYI the original vinyl album was called figure 14 and for some reason they called the CD figure 15. If you can find it could you play another Boston band called the Lyres and their song “I want to help you Ann“

  11. That’s funny. At least you didn’t sing some of their other songs. You know which one I’m talking about!

  12. Thanks for playing Pylon last night!
    I’m going to get a little shameless here:
    Check out my other project PRS’s recent release for Halloween 2020 Wild Rumpus Special “Compression.”

  13. Requesting more than one song is ridiculous. Please stop. Here’s my one: Big electric cat-= Cat people (bowie

  14. Shiver and Shave by the Cure

    Thanks Matt

  15. Shiver and Shake I mean

  16. Using the BFG-9000, I made it safely through the episode.

    This week’s Darkness Award:
    BFG, “Amelia”

    Thanksgiving is a time to spend with family and friends.

    Request for future show:
    Tubeway Army, “Friends”

  17. Higher than the Sun- Primal Scream

  18. Excellent show. The shoegazing block was great, as always.

  19. addictedtonoise

    Please add Modern English – Dance Of Devotion to next week’s playlist

  20. Matt, the show last night was amazing! Dark Wave seems to get better with each passing week. If you have time next week, this would be great to hear.

    The Sisters of Mercy – Train

    Thank you, sir!

  21. Can you play Ghost Dance A Deeper Blue? Havent heard that song in awhile!

  22. Would love to hear “Gentleman Take Polaroids” by Japan on next week’s show!

  23. Matt, I am going to agree that Plainsong by The Cure would be a great addition.

    Thanks much!

  24. Seconding Rob’s request for The The’s “Giant.”

    Great show, thanks for playing my request for BFG’s “Amelia”!

  25. Wow…”Hungarian Love Song” by the Jazz Butcher…nice ! No suggestions or requests for next week. Just play whatever the hell you feel like – I’m sure it’ll be awesome.
