Episode 222: 4/30/2023

Half Machine Lip Moves logo with ‘#222’ on it.

We began this show with some tracks featuring the late Mark Stewart (of The Pop Group). This show happened on Walpurgisnacht, so we played three sets of goth, industrial, darkwave, post-punk, etc. tracks themed around witchcraft, magic, spells, curses, enchantment, etc; and we played a set of dark ambient tracks with the same underlying theme. Then we closed the show with a set of kosmische/krautrock and spacey noise rock.
