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. Can you dig up “Coffee Homeground” by Kate Bush for next Sunday’s show? Thanx!

  2. Great episode tonight! Thank you for the killing joke! Happy 4th!

  3. Thanks for playing my MBM request. Varied show this week. Could you play some Nitzer Ebb next week?

  4. Thank you for “Spirit” by Bauhaus, I forgot I requested it!
    Could you play “City Of 9 Gates” by Psi Com next show?

  5. Fernando N

    I think my next suggestion will be “Metal Beat” by John Foxx

  6. Thanks for the Swell Maps. Hour 2 killed it tonight, though “Rush”, “These Remains”, and Manufacture kind of gave it a run for the money.

    Kind of in a punk frame of mind lately. Would like to ask for The Wipers “No Fair” in an upcoming episode.

    Thanks for the great music. It makes my week. Have a good one.

  7. keep slayin. bark psychosis?

  8. Deryl Donahue

    Always love your show, Matt. I look forward to it every week. How about my favorite Gene Loves Jezebel tune for next week – “Pop Tarantula”.

  9. The Sisterhood – Colours

  10. Hi Matt, thank you for another amazing show. Would you please play SUPERSTAR – SONIC YOUTH? Thank you from your faithful listener Tony.

  11. Awesome set Matt!! Thank you for the SOM! The program made my drive home after 16 hours of OT more bearable. :)
    Done possible suggestions for next time:

    PJ Harvey – Man-Size
    Pixies – Velouria
    Concrete Blonde – Caroline

  12. ^^^Some^^^

  13. Awesome set my friend. Could you play Cities in Dust (live at the Apollo Theatre) by Siouxsie & the Banshees on next Sunday’s show? Thanks and have a great week Matt.

  14. Hi Matt! Could you play Wait for the Blackout by the Damned please?

  15. Great show Matt. Really enjoyed Anne Clark and Manufacture. Could u play late night on mauldin street by Morrissey? Thanks much!

  16. Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds – The Good Son

  17. Nice choice of “Jack the Ripper” as a closer. Can you play one of the lesser-known tracks off of Morrissey’s (criminally underrated) Maladjusted album, either “I Can Have Both” or “This Is Not Your Country?”

  18. XD’s “Ashes” was lovely. Care to follow that up with “When I Was Bed”? : – )

    I’d also love to hear The Creatures “Slipping Away.”

    Thank you!

  19. Most excellent show last night!
    For this upcoming Sunday, any chance you could play one or both of the following?

    “Extra CD Track” by Ultra Vivid Scene
    “Chlorine Dream” by Spirea X

  20. Hypnotic episode.

    This week’s Darkness Award:
    Richard H. Kirk, “Hipnotic”

    Request for future show:
    Jarvic 7, “Bush of Love”

  21. Constantine

    Hi Matt

    Can you play a Cure cover for me this Sunday

    a very excellent version of a Forest by Clan of Xymox from their Kindred Spirits album

    Xymox doing the Cure – Two for the price of one I would say


  22. Icicle Works -In the cauldron of love.

  23. While watching daytime TV I thought of the number Raise the Pulse by Portion Control. Hope you will put it in a fitness set.

  24. Good show!

  25. Thanks Matt, Great show as usual.
    How about:
    Alien Sex Fiend-Silver Machine(Another Planet)

  26. My favorite hour: 1, 2, & 3….thank you

  27. Marvelous as per the norm. On a future show perhaps, The Merry Thoughts “The Sun and the Rainfall” great SOM soundalikes.


  28. Hey Matt,

    I listen to your show religiously every week. I really love the industrial sections of your shows and always go back to listen to them after the show. Please play “Lovely Day” by Front 242, definitely one of my favs. Thank you for the great shows.
