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. Sir, I would have settled for some freeze dried Taster’s Choice, A Fragment, but then you spring some serious gourmet full length Never Land on me. That was pretty epic. May I request:

    Nine Inch Nail- Wish

    You know it’s fun. Please and thank you for sharing your Sunday evenings with us.

  2. This time, I think I’m in the mood for some “Dangerous Rhythm” by Ultravox

  3. Hi Matt, I loved the shoegaze set tonight! My request for next week is
    New Order – Everything’s Gone Green.

  4. I would love to hear Nephilim Chord of souls or Celebrate x

  5. Thanks for K÷93, and I’m not sure *I* got that right!
    Can you play on the next #Darkwave something off Gary Numan’s newest album INTRUDER? The title track is fine.

  6. Great show, Matt!

    I’ve got an odd request … not sure if she’s mainstream enough to make your line-up. Ever heard of Chiasm (real name Emileigh Roehn)? She’s had quite a few tracks make it to video game soundtracks and episodes of CSI:Whatever and shows like that. Could you play something from her?

    If I get to pick, my fave track of hers is “Surrender,” from her Relapse album. Thanks!

  7. Great show. Hour 3 really killed it, especially the Poison Takes a Hold.

    Would like to request something from The Veil’s album Surrender. Preferably “Sway” but “Twisted” or “Pale Horse” would be great too.

    Thanks and have a good week.

  8. “London After Midnight” by The Flaming Stars
    “Downhill Without Brakes”by The Flaming Stars
    “You Don’t Always Want What You Get”by The Flaming Stars
    Loved Echo tonight

  9. “In Every Dream home A Heartache”-Rozz Williams
    For next weekend loved tonights show only missed the chameleons
    Love this cover also love the original
    Thank You

  10. Nice to hear the MBV/ Weatherall (RIP). For a future episode can we hear the Michael Gira version of “Love Will Tear Us Apart,” or Dominatrix- “The Dominatrix Sleeps Tonight”?

  11. addictedtonoise

    Could you consider Disco Inferno’s “No Edge, No End” for next week’s show? Thanks!

  12. Shriekback Big Hush

  13. Hey Matt! Super awesome show as per usual! Loved the selections especially hour 2!! Some possible suggestions for next week:

    NIN – Get Down Make Love
    Ministry – Cannibal Song
    Skinny Puppy – The Choke

    Thanks as always!!

  14. Thanks for taking us to church again!

  15. Jeff VinylJunkie

    Phenomenal show as always, Matt.
    Keep it up with Love and Rockets!! I’ve got a left field request, that I doubt will get past the censors…..but worth a shot.
    Boris Mikulic – Diana

  16. Hour 3 in particular was really something. Well done, Matt!

  17. Sisters of Mercy- First and Last and Always please and thank you

  18. Good show!

    Here are some requests –

    The Psychedelic Furs – India (in honor of their debut album coming out 42 years ago on 3/7/80)
    Joy Division – Novelty


  19. Very interesting to learn of that Life Goes On riff. I would say Captain Sensible is due some compensation as his music sparked two classic songs. Anyway, thanks for playing my Gary Numan request this week and congrats on another great show.

  20. The Fall -Blindness (Peel session )

  21. Siouxsie & the Banshees – Rite of Spring/Israel from Nocturne

  22. The Damned – Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde

  23. Fascinating episode.

    This week’s Darkness Award:
    Cabaret Voltaire, “Just Fascination”

  24. For your consideration for next week:

    She’s In Parties – Bauhaus
    Sick For Toys – The Sugracubes
    Precious – Depeche Mode
    The Song Of The Sibyl – Dead Can Dance

  25. Thanks for playing Kraftwerk. Lovely hearing them on the show. You always do good by your listeners and I appreciate that. Thanks for all you do! Have a great week!

  26. I’d just like to say thanks for the Lush photo. I still love Emma from this time period.

  27. Hey Matt, Great show!
    Since you’ve played my requests for Coil and Chris and Cosey, I thought we could complete the trifecta of ex Throbbing Gristle members and play something from Genesis P. Orridge. May I request,

    Psychic TV- I C Water

    Please and Thank You

  28. This is a great song from an Italian band called S Product the song Waste your time Thankx for all the great songs and memories of hearing them in my HS days.

  29. Opps S Product from LA not Italy srys.

  30. loved the synthy set AND the shoegazy bit last night.

    As we’re getting into Spring, can I request Wicker Man song covers? Rose McDowall of Strawberry Switchblade did one with Nature and Organisation, and Doves do a great gothy reverb version of the same song (which they call Willow’s Song)

    thanks as ever!

  31. Poptones, Pere Ubu and Shack Up! With only this, the show would be complete. Just amazing.
    Matt, I/we love you. Never stop!

  32. Really surprised to hear Sunshine Blind. Thanks.

  33. Wow I loved that show i just listened to it again and heard you talk about how I can make a request my friend told me about this show and I just started listening to it last Sunday and I’m just going to say that was a very amazing show loved Lush,The Sound , The Cure and Sunshine Blind can I hear something from the 90s I mean you played a few songs from the 90s but they were already bands from before so I don’t Know if these Ideas would be valid but just choose thanks
