This was our Japanese artists special, which was suggested by our friend Jason. We started with a block of industrial, going with a mix of recent and old school material. Then we a had a block of wild experimental noise rock, including rare live Melt Banana recorded here in Arkansas. That was followed by a block of noise, and then two blocks of psychedelic noise rock. Then we closed the show with an experimental and ambient block.
Update: The Lingua Ignota show in Little Rock that was mentioned in this episode was cancelled due to health issues. We’re wishing Krysten of Lingua Ignota a fast and full recovery.

This started off weird… I was late getting to the station and technical problems ate up half of the first block, but we persevered and made the show happen.
We started with Arctic Flowers covering Joy Division, in honor of the anniversary of Ian Curtis’s death, and Street Sects. Then we got moving with a set of darkwave and post-punk. That was followed by a set of danceable EBM. There was a block of blackened noise and power electronics after that. We played a set in honor of this month’s full moon, and we closed with a block of ambient.
We returned to the airwaves with some hot new EBM and industrial tracks. That was followed by a block of new post-punk and darkwave. Then there was an industrial set in honor of Mother’s Day. Things took a turn and went into a darker direction, with a block of power electronics, a tribute to the late Marco Corbelli (of Atrax Morgue/Slaughter Productions fame), and we closed the show with a block of dark ambient drones.
Half Machine Lip Moves took a break last week to help out with our station’s fundraising benefit, and the show returns tonight. Join us for some hot new industrial tracks, a post-punk and darkwave set, a block in honor of Mother’s Day, a tribute to Marco Corbelli (Atrax Morgue/Slaughter Productions label), dark ambient, and more. Tune in tonight at 10 PM-1 AM Central Time (11 PM-2 AM Eastern/8-11 PM Pacific/03:00-06:00 UTC) on KUHS-LP Hot Springs 102.
