Episode 75.5: 3/1/2019

I went to hang out and co-host Finally Friday with Sonny Kay on 3/1/2019. Then, because the hosts of the show that’s normally on after Finally Friday couldn’t make it to the station, I was on air for two hours (10 PM-12 AM). I didn’t have anything planned, so I threw this one together on the fly.

This show happened on International EBM Day (24/2), so we had a block of old school-style EBM, dancefloor-friendly EBM (you’ll have to supply your own glowsticks for this one), and a set of dark EBM. Then, we shifted gears and played some death industrial and power electronics in honor of the Brighter Death Now/Steel Hook Prostheses show in Austin that night, and closed with a block of dark ambient.

Big shoutout and thanks to Mach Fox of Zwaremachine for making us a show ID!

We opened this episode with some new stuff from Front Line Assembly and Xotox, and a Hide Track. Then we had two blocks in memory of Phil Western (RIP), featuring tracks he worked on with Skinny Puppy, Plateau, and Download; and a block of tracks from some of his solo works. Then we had a mini-block of listener-requested block themed around war, and some post-punk. Then we had a block of dirty lo-fi industrial noise, and closed with a block of synth noise.

This is our second Valentines/Anti-Valentines Day Special. We started with a requested Phil Western song (RIP), then we started the show proper with a couple of post-punk and minimal wave songs about breakups. Then there was a block of songs themed around loneliness and alienation. That was followed by a block of tracks about misanthropy and hatred, then a block of revenge and retribution song. We had a special block at midnight about uh… black gloves and discipline. Then we closed with a block of songs about “love” or whatever.

This show started with industrial and a few of OT’s favorite Teengenerate tracks. That was followed by a block of minimal wave, and a set themed around owls in honor of the day’s Superb Owl. There was a set of tracks from some of Lee Renaldo’s solo work after that, in honor of his birthday. That was followed by a block of shoegaze and some dreamy ambient and experimental tracks in the final block.
