Got a request? To be considered for next week’s show, drop it in the comments below by noon Tuesday. Requests will be considered as long as they fit the show’s format and generally within the 1stWave era — and provided the host doesn’t harbor an intense dislike of the song. 





  1. Love anything from Confessions of a Knife. Smothered Hope was a great request pick. Chris Connelly, he’s my favorite Cock and thank you for playing him. I don’t recall hearing this staple here in awhile, so may I request:

    My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult- Kooler than Jesus

    Definitely set a high bar for the year to come with this show. That Eleven Pond is a new favorite for sure.

  2. Can you dig up “Dream Days” by the Lucy Show for next Sunday’s show? Thanx!

  3. Thank you for Gary Numan tonight! Great show tonight. Website looks nice.

  4. Is there anything better than the pulsing, slow build of I Will Refuse??

  5. Hi Matt–awesome show, as always. If you can, Rivers by Skinny Puppy would be fantastic.

  6. March Violets – Snake Dance (Extended Version)

  7. Funny, I was going to request Human Sexual response for next week, it was great to hear, thanks. And the Academy Fight song was named after Academy Hill Road in Allston, MA, where Mission of Burma once lived.

    If you are so Inclined how about “sanctified” by Nine Inch Nails next week?

  8. Matt, thank you for playing my request for The Glove among many other great tracks last night. Outstanding show, once again!

  9. Can we start a petition for you to replace Richard Blade??
    You and this show belong in prime time. As always, FANTASTIC soundtrack tonight.

  10. Great show. Any chance of _Blue Buddah_ by MLWTTTK?

  11. That was one of the best Dark Wave playlists I’ve ever heard! Absolutely brilliant Mission “Severina”, Chameleons “Swamp Thing”, The Cure “the Blood”, all personal faves of mine. Brilliant! Perhaps you could play either Chameleons “Tears” or the Mission “Wasteland” next week? Love the alt, goth mixes way more than heavier industrial stuff. Thanks Matt!!

  12. Please play “The Things You Said” by Depeche Mode.

  13. Next week, perhaps?

    Homesick – The Cure
    Rings Of Saturn – Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds
    Song To The Siren – This Mortal Coil
    Traitor – The Sugarcubes

  14. Fantastic show! Would love to request one of two songs.
    FLA Plasticity.
    Suicide Commando Hellraiser VNV Remix

    Thank you

  15. Smiths – this night has opened my eyes

  16. Swans – God Damn the Sun

    Texas will be warming up soon enough…

  17. Thanks for the Human Sexual Response cut. So many great songs this show. Loved the Glove, Chris Connelly, Japan, and Gary Numan tracks in particular.

    Have a great week. And also like the new website layout.

  18. Aah, nice to hear the Chris Connelly track; “Shipwreck” is a great album and quite a move away from his more industrial efforts, and I hope to hear more from this record in the near future (the title track perhaps or Detestimony III).

    However what I’d really like to hear is his vocals on Final Cut – Primal Understanding.

  19. As a crushed Bills fan (live an hour north of Buffalo) your show is the only thing getting me through….as always a great show. Loved that you played Swamp Thing…one of my favorites. Anyways….some requests for my shattered heart:

    Depeche Mode -Stripped
    Portishead – Sour Times
    Jane Siberry – It Can’t Rain All The Time

    Thanks ❤️

  20. Another good mix of favorites and deep cuts!

    Here are some requests –

    Escape With Romeo – Physical
    Killing Joke – We Have Joy


  21. Violent episode.

    This week’s Darkness Award:
    Nitzer Ebb, “Violent Playground”

    “To the left!

  22. Thank You for The Rose Of Avalanche can I please hear “Ghost Rider” (Live) by The Sisters Of Mercy or “Susan’s Strange” by The Psychedelic Furs also loved the Gang Of Four, Chameleons and Cure tracks

  23. I love how you’re sectioning shows into different genres to make your listeners happy! Could you possibly consider playing the following in upcoming shows?

    The Danse Society – Say It Again
    The Bolshoi – Books on the Bonfire

  24. “American Woman” by The Butthole Surfers sorry for the late notice but I remembered this song and boom my mind was blown sorry again for being late still hope to hear it
