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. Thank you for Castles in Spain. One of my favorites. Can I please request Baby Turn Blue by the Virgin prunes. I’d also love to hear Gabriel by Handful of Snowdrops

  2. Excellent episode tonight!

  3. Can you dig up “Nothing Natural” by Lush for next Sunday’s show? Thanx!

  4. Greetings from a land afar! The great MLWTTKK track conjured into my mind the Electric Hellfire Club song “Prince Of Darkness”, so if you could drop that i to next week’s #Darkwave that’d be thrill!
    *poof*disappears into the mist*

  5. “Teenage Riot”
    Sonic Youth

  6. Thanks for the Concrete Blonde and also for following it up with one of my favorite Killing Joke songs.

    Tough to call one particular hour. They were all awesome. Thanks for the great show tonight. Have a good one.

  7. Fernando N

    The next song I have in mind would have to be “There’ll Come A Day” by The Damned

  8. Keith Brown

    Would love to hear Woman’s Own by Danse Society

  9. Great show as always. Technical question. Last two weeks DW has started airing before 10pm EST on the app. Why the early lead in from Richard’s Sunday evening show to yours? I know not everything we hear is truly live. Just curious. Thanks.

  10. Sharla Cockrell

    Awesome show tonight! The next Morrissey song I want to hear is “Such a little thing makes such a big difference” please!

    Thanks, Sharla

  11. Great set, Matt. How about “From Safety to Where…?” by Joy Division?

  12. Great show! I’m always happy to hear something from Pigface! As a request I would like to hear Face to Face from Siouxsie and the Banshees in honor of the 30 year anniversary of Batman Returns.

  13. Pixies – Dead

  14. It’s so great to see underground music constantly represented! Each week is better than the last and that’s HARD to do!! Could I humbly ask for the following songs to be played in upcoming shows?

    Bourbonese Qualk – Return to Order
    Human Drama – Old Man
    Stripmall Architecture – Rockin’ Back Inside My Heart (Julee Cruise cover)
    Les Rita Mitsouko – C’est Comme Ça
    New Model Army – Better Than Them

  15. Hi Matt please play tears by the chameleons thank you

  17. Steven Litt

    Can you play the charltans weirdo

  18. Thanks for Come Back to the Living : – )

    Great show!

  19. Another good show! I also second the thought on why the last couple of DW’s have been starting early.

    Here are some requests –

    The Smiths – The Boy With the Thorn in His Side (Rank/live version)
    Gary Numan – Observer


  20. Hey matt

    Killing joke- change

    Would be a good song to play

  21. Hey matt

    Going to see tears for fears this weeekend in new york would be nice to add to list.

    Tears for fears – pale shelter

  22. Another great, dark Sunday night!

    I think in honor of Steve albini’s wsop win you should play precious thing or bad penny by big black this week.

    Thanks as always for the great show!

  23. Love Dark Wave soooo much! Could you please play “No One Receiving” by Brian Eno next week? Thank you!

  24. Jagger Mabry

    Song Request
    KMFDM – Leid Und Elend

  25. Jagger Mabry

    Song Request
    Killing Joke – The Death And Resurrection Show

  26. Love the show. Great to hear some Pigface from Fook.
    A suggestion to hear is some Sister Machine Gun.


  27. Hi Matt! You saved the best for last this week! ;) Thank you for the J&MC! I know you must get this a lot ….but seriously….your show is a much needed escape into past music bliss! Some possible suggestions for next week:

    New Order – Krafty
    The Verve – Gravity Grave
    The Boo Radleys – Kaleidoscope

  28. Matt,
    YOU MADE MY NIGHT with He Said “Pump”! Love that track!

  29. One of the most frightening bits of music put to record was J G Thirlwell’s
    The Bowel of Beelzebub: A Symphony in Four Movements from the Steroid Maximus: Gondwanaland album. In college, I would make people come over and turn all the lights off and crank these tracks up extremely loud. It’s a fun experience and I highly recommend it.
    Could you play the Second Movement:
    The Auctioneer of Souls

  30. Great episode.

    This week’s Darkness Award:
    He Said, “Pump”

    “Thump thump thump thump”

  31. that was a really good show, loved the mix of music. Woulsd love to request one of these songs.
    The Cure A Thousand Hours
    Aphex Twins Come to Daddy
    Depeche Mode Something to do
    Devo Puppet Boy

  32. Would love to hear The Police represented on the Dark side here. “Mother” certainly comes to mind, but if you want to pick another, please do! Always enjoy the show!!!

  33. The Grand Haunted Lair

    Hi Matt,
    Can you please play Teenage Enema Nurses in Bondage by Killer Pussy. We love your show. Thank you for playing Bauhaus for us last week. Have a good evening.
