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. …The bad thing about punk was it was very nihilistic and aggressive. We were like
    bad teenagers, but it gave (us) post-punk bands like Siouxsie and the Banshees, Joy Division,
    Killing Joke, PIL – that ilk of bands inspired a lot of great music after punk…those years from 1980 to 1988…it was a fantastic period of music…

    From, ‘The Light Pours out of Me The authorised biography of John McGeoch’
    A kindly memoir of the guitarist, with contributions from Johnny Marr, Barry Adamson, Noko, Paul Morley, Budgie, Howard Devoto, Richard Jobson, and others.

  2. Brilliant shoegazey ending to this week’s show – loved it!

    For this Sunday, could you please play “Shine” by Slowdive?


  3. Enjoy the longer remixes this week.

    Looking forward to this Sunday!

  4. Luscious episode.

    This week’s Darkness Award:
    Lush, “Last Night”

    “All the things that passed
    Were satisfied”

  5. haunted when the minutes drag

    Loved that third hour. Especially the second half starting with the Roses.

  6. Very fun setlist Matt, I really enjoyed all the extended mixes. Gotta echo others, that third hour was absolutely killer. I really wish we all could have heard Joy Division’s version of Louie Louie, but thank goodness we have that cover of Sister Ray!

    Request for this week: Haunted when the minutes drag – Love and Rockets.



    Any chance you could consider Section 25 – “Visitation” for next week’s show?

  8. Mike from Michigan

    I figure it’s a given, but you will be opening the next show with The Smiths – “The Queen is Dead”…. right??

  9. Bridget Damron

    Hello Matt , Please if you could for tonight’s show 9-11, Wish James Damron Happy 15th B-Day and play “I can’t escape myself “ off Jeopardy by the Sound . Thanks so much ! – Bridget

    I attended Castle Party goth festival in Poland a few months ago and it was all Dark Wave worthy.
