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 “Hitherto” by Cocteau Twins for next week’s show? Thanx!

  2. Juan Berlanga

    How about some later Depeche Mode from SoTU. Sun and the Moon and the Stars Not to be confused with The Sun and the Rainfall ;-) Martin’s gritty bluesy guitar is perfect with his spacey SOTU sounds.
    Las Vegas thanks you for great Sunday nights !

  3. Great show as always. Would you consider playing “A Displaced House in the North” by End of Your Garden — and anything you can share about the band?

    Please and thanks.

  4. Great setlist!
    How about a few encores?
    The Creatures – Exterminating Angel or Slipping Away
    Siouxsie – Ornaments of Gold or Overground
    Coil – Love’s Secret Domain
    Moev – Yeah, Whatever or Head Down

    I also would love to hear any of these when you can –
    Fad Gadget – Gag
    Rose of Avalanche – Who Cares
    The Cure – In Your House or The Figurehead
    Gene Loves Jezebel – Bruises or Shame (Whole Heart Howl version)
    Christian Death – Spectre or Haloes

    Thank you!!!

  5. Great episode tonight! Thank you for MCL! Goodnight!

  6. Another amazing show! Would like to request “Head On” by the Pixies. Thanks again!

  7. Nice job with Scratch Acid and Flesh for Lulu

  8. Thanks for the Bill Pritchard. Hour 2 all the way this week. Scratch Acid, Flesh for Lulu, and Beat Happening put it over the top.

    Great music all throughout though. Have a great week.

  9. Thirlwell 99

    Great show, Matt. Loved hearing the new Cult song during the show.

  10. Great set list. Can’t wait to listen to it.

    How about Meninblack by the Stranglers for next week.


  11. Your setlist was brilliant. Your choice of Danielle Dax cuts Superb.

  12. Thanks for the great set list! Would love to hear Vet for the Insane by Fields of the Nephilim on the next show.

  13. Thanks for playing my request for the Creatures! And loved hearing Recoil, which brings me to my request for a future show.

    Would it be possible to hear a different song by Recoil on the show? I feel like I’ve only ever heard “Faith Healer” on here. I’ve always been partial to the ‘97 album Unsound Methods so anything off of that would be lovely. Thanks again!

  14. Wow what a set list — awesome from start to finish!!!! Thanks for the J&MC! ʘ‿ʘ
    Here are some suggestions for next time:

    Ministry – Just Like You
    KMFDM – Naive
    Perfect Blue Sky – Junkie XL (featuring Robert Smith)

    I see there is another Tina so I’ll dub myself Tina J !!

    Here are some requests –

    The Gun Club – Promise Me
    Lush – Scarlet


  20. Awesome show!
    A request for something by En Esch from Cheesey if you have it, maybe Confidence.


  21. Gitane Demone – Incendiary Lover

    • I second that! Lose This Gravity by the fabulous Ms. Demone would be great too! What a voice on that lady!

  22. I might be off my rocker. How about Garbage’s “Vow” ?

  23. Hi Matt,

    I know you have a penchant for covers and you played Pere Ubu’s Non-Alignment Pact a few weeks back. I used to have Julian Cope’s US debut EP that included a cover of that song. I haven’t seen it on the streaming services. Could you give that one a go?

  24. I’ll second any deep cuts from Low-Life and Brotherhood.

  25. Thanks for always great music. David Bowie Scary Monsters please!!

  29. Great show. Thanks for digging up the Intermix track. How about another dig.
    Psychic TV-Bliss(Towards the Infinite Beat)

    For Mark – RIP

  31. loop – burning prisms
