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. It’s always a treat to hear Skeletal Family. This is one of those “get every last drop out in the next two weeks” episodes. Seriously, seriously solid show. Everytime I thought you couldn’t possibly play another banger, you’d play two back to back. Could I request:

    Sisters of Mercy- Never Land- A Fragment

    Please and thank you as always. Outstanding communion Mr. Sebastian.

  2. Can you dig up “Another Day” by Strawberry Switchblade for next Sunday’s show? Thanx!

  3. Have to give it to Hour 1 this week. The Cure, Kate Bush, and Pink Turn Blue selections were spot on. Also great to hear the Chris & Cosey, Colourbox, and Cramps cuts.

    Thanks for a great show. Looking forward to next show. Have a good one.

  4. Really great episode tonight! Goodnight.

  5. Absolutely OUTSTANDING show this weekend. Kate Bush, Dalis Car, Eno, Recoil, Bauhaus – so many gems in tonight’s playlist. Thank you for all you do. Look forward to this show every Sunday night.

    I don’t have any particular song requests but I do have an artist request. Been a while since I heard Kraftwerk on the show. Would it be possible to squeeze in something by them in a future show?

    Thanks a lot and have a great week!

  6. Yodudeman, can you play “Remembrance Day” by K÷93 (b.k.a. Jaz Coleman and Peter Hook.)?

  7. Hi Matt, would you be able to play Gang of Four’s It Is Not Enough? Thanks!

  8. Fernando N

    The song on my mind for next Sunday would be “Life Goes On” by The Damned

  9. “In Fields Of Sleep”by B.F.G this song is really roc-kin if I could hear it next Sunday I would be very happy
    Thank you great show last night haddrnt heard “Six Different Ways” in a while

  10. Thank you Matt. This show is a great escape from a mad world. I’d like to propose some shoegaze for next week as it always makes me feel better when I’m stressed. Some possible suggestions for next week:

    The Verve – Already There
    Chapterhouse – Mesmerise
    Jesus and Mary Chain – Never Understand

    Thanks much!

      Tina–you may have heard of them, but Holygram is a pretty awesome/current shoegaze band. Check out their recent album, “Modern Cults”. Cheers!

  11. Adam Faulds

    Cheers on another great show. May I please hear:
    Gary Numan – The Joy Circuit
    at your convenience.

    Thanks much,

    Adam in LA

  12. That third hour was rocking!

    Here are some requests –

    Suicide – Diamonds, Fur Coat, Champagne
    Lush – Leaves Me Cold


  13. Fields of the Nephilim – She

  14. Deep episode.

    This week’s Darkness Award:
    Chris & Cosey, “Deep Velvet”

    Request for future show:
    The Electric Hellfire Club, “Sympathy for the Devil”

  15. Fantastic show Matt!
    Since you said you like covers, here are a few I like:

    Nine Inch Nails’ cover of Adam Ant’s Physical

    In The Nursery has a great cover of Joy Division’s, Love Will Tear Us Apart(on the Cause and Effect album)

    Frank Black’s cover of The Beach Boys, Hang On To Your Ego


  16. Sunshine Blind “Keyslough” would be great to hear. Or Curve “Robbing Charity”. How about some Xorcist “Erlicheda” or “Iron Helix”? Thanks for your show, love it!!

  17. Gary Numan + Tubeway Army- Are friends electric?

  18. Constantine

    Cabaret Voltaire – “Just Fascination”

    please Matt


  19. Thirwell 99

    Matt–stellar list again. I was thinking of requesting “Ocean” by DCD this week, but never got around to it. To hear one of their best tunes, East of Eden, instead (what a bassline!) was pretty cool. You are the playlist King!

  20. Heck ya Just Give em Whiskey! Would you consider playing Nonalignment Pact by Pere Ubu. If I was deserted on an island and could only take one bands catalog, it would most likely be that of Pere Ubu.

    Thank you Matt Sebastian, appreciate your show so much!

  21. Wow this week flwq by. Awesome show last sunday!!! ty ty for platong TOS by the Mission , love that song. Heres a late request I love this song sadly hardly ever hear it.
    Depeche Mode – Something To Do (@dominatrixrmx

  22. I have a pretty good one this week I hope!

    Inside out- Martin Dupont

  23. I don’t know if it ‘fits’ but what about the cover of Eight Miles High by Husker Du?

  24. For the ones staying afloat in an ocean of need..

    “2nd Thought”, by OMD (1980)
    “I Am The Law”, by The Human League (1981)
    “Radioland”, by Kraftwerk (1975)
