Got a request? Requests will be considered for future episodes 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. What a treat as always. Would it be possible to hear:

    My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult- Hand in Hand

    Look forward to next week.

  2. In my opinion, that was one of your best shows. Felt like every selection was right on point. Especially appreciated hearing 14 Iced Bears. Missed them first time around. Will have to look them up. Thanks.

    Have a great week. Thanks again for the good music.

  3. How about “The Sun & The Rainfall” by Depeche Mode from their second album “A Broken Frame”?

  4. Sad Lovers and Giants On Another Day was my favorite for so long back in the day….thanks for playing!

  5. Joy Division – Means to an End

  6. I enjoyed this show very much!

    Hoping for MInistry’s cover of “The Light Pours out of me” originally by Magazine

  7. Thank you Wedding Present and The Smiths in the same neighborhood, excellent selections BTW.
    Next week ‘My White Devil’ by Echo & Bunnymen?
    Thank you Matt. Never Stop!

  8. KMFDM – Inane
    please & thanks Matt

  9. Really awesome set Matt! I plan on listening more later today from snowy Buffalo!! Some possible suggestions for next time:

    Front 242 – Moldavia
    Skinny Puppy – Inquisition
    Front Line Assembly – Exo

    Thanks again as always!!!! 。⁠◕⁠‿⁠◕⁠。

  10. Another great show, Matt. Keep em coming. I’d love to hear ‘Flowers – TV Version by Nightmares In Wax’ sometime. Thanks!

  11. Japan – Life in Tokyo

  12. Always nice to hear pre stadium rock Simple Minds. Reminds us how good they actually were. Would request “Return” by Deine Lakaien or “Geisha Boys and Temple Girls” by Heaven 17. Thanks.

  13. Enjoyed all the choices!

    Here are some requests –

    The Lucy Show – Come Back to the Living
    The Gun Club – Carry Home


  14. Tuxedomoon – No Tears
    Longshot Request (Gesaffelstein – Obsession)

  15. How about pink frost by the chills? Ty

  16. I wanted to request “Procession” by New Order. I don’t think that song gets enough appreciation in terms of New Order coming into its own musical style after Joy Division.

  17. Great set!

    A periodic reminder that we can always use more Big Black. So, i would like to request something live off Pigpile – Pavement Saw, Bad Penny, or Cables. Thanks!

  18. Loved this set, already listened twice, and will be on repeat the rest of the week. Thanks for playing the Bowie cut. Makes me want to re-watch Lost Highway right now.

    Lots of excellent requests above so I’ll just second Evan, we absolutely can always use more Big Black.

    Have a great week Matt, cheers!

  19. Thanks to include RIDE and FELT, two of my favorite bands!!!

  20. Hi Matt enjoyed the show with some new favorites like Fields Of The Nephilim – For Her Light and Felt- The Stagnant Pool.

  21. I have a request for Killing Joke – Adoration
    Regret not seeing them a few years ago when they were playing in Brooklyn.

  22. Hi Matt, can you please play If Only and Sometimes by Rosetta Stone? Thanks!

  23. Another show with Bowie and The Jesus and Mary Chain – yay, I’m a very happy listener! Bowie remains a constant inspiration for me. And always cool to hear Ride!

  24. Thank you so much for Power of Lard. I had completely forgotten how much I love that song. It has been stuck in my head all week. Nothing compares to Biafra’s vocals.

  25. My bday is tmo!! would love to hear Alison by Slowdive and/or Disintegration by The Cure!!
    Thanks! :)

  26. Bill Rankin

    Best program on Sirius! Requesting “Regular Sex” by Those French Girls.
    Thanks Bill in Banff Alberta.

  27. Loving this playlist! It’s great to hear some of my favorite dark wave tracks all in one place. The mix of old and new is spot on and I’m discovering some new bands to add to my rotation. Thanks for curating this, Slicing Up Eyeballs!
