Cardiacs: Kiss the Big Ugly Shark

Thursday Mayhem 5 6:PM to 10:PM
Hosted by Austin Space and Moe! Staiano

If Frank Zappa's 1988 ensemble was proclaimed as the "best band you've never heard of", then England's Cardiacs have an entire career of adventerous, edgy, complex music that most of us have never heard of. Formed in 1977 up to 2008 (before leader Tim Smith was knocked ill due to a stroke), Cardiacs have had their own style of music flavourings marrying punk and prog (later coined as 'pronk') together. Cardiacs' music is noted for balancing the attack and 'raw energy' of punk rock with the intricacies and technical cleverness of early British progressive rock. The band also incorporates elements of other musical forms such as ska, mediaeval music, folk music, heavy metal, hymns and corporate anthems. One such comment from one English magazine stated "one Cardiacs song contains more ideas than most other musicians' entire careers." Cardiacs: Kiss the Big Ugly Shark will focus on their entire recorded career and will give a good, lengthy introduction to those tuning in of the real best band you've never heard.

Hosted by Goodwrench

The St. Louis-based Black Artists group was a multidisciplinary arts collective similar to Chicago's AACM, but including poets, playwrights, and painters along with musicians. They were fairly short-lived (1968-1972), but helped launch the careers of many influential jazz musicians, including Oliver Lake , Hamiet Bluiett, Joseph Bowie, Luther Thomas, Julius Hemphill, Baikida Carroll, Charles Shaw, Floyd LeFlore, and others. This special will trace the musical careers of BAG members, including side project such as the World Saxophone Quartet.

We Love You, You Big Dummy: Captain Beefheart Memorial Part 1

Saturday Mayhem 7 6:PM to Midnight
Hosted by Terry Tyke 6:PM to 9:PM
Hosted by Art Crimes 9:PM to Midnight

6 hours of Captain Beefheart: music, interviews and other memorial mayhem presented by an intrepid team of KFJC staff, listeners and veterans

Peel vs. Beefheart: And the winner is...We, The Listeners. As he did with so many artists, John Peel was the first to play and champion Captain Beefheart to an unsuspecting British public, so here's the attempt by a then-young and impressionable English lad to bring some perspective to the shockwaves this life-changing event caused around the sleepy shores of Great Britain. Terry Tyke (who was once a young and impressionable English lad) will present the UK perspective on Captain Beefheart from 6-9 p.m.

Turning on the Electricity: Captain Beefheart's original Magic Band formed in 1965 and their first single became a regional hit. Television and teen concert appearances followed, and that could very well be the pinnacle of their career, as far as popular tastes are concerned. Bravely, they took another path... one which eventually led to Trout Mask Replica. Art Crimes and long-time Magic Band member John "Drumbo" French follow the baby steps of the Magic Band from 9-12 p.m

We Love You, You Big Dummy: Captain Beefheart Memorial Part 2

Sunday Mayhem 8 3:PM to 10:PM
Hosted by Ann Arbor and Bobo Z 3:PM to 7:PM
Hosted by Max Level 7:PM to 10:PM

7 more hours of Captain Beefheart: music, interviews and other memorial Mayhem presented by an intrepid team of KFJC staff, listeners and veterans:

Sailing From Lancaster The Beefheart Odyssey and Legends Despite his claims to the contrary, the good Captain was influenced by plenty of artists and existing music. We'll explore this along with Van Vliet's work from the late 1970s until his retirement from music in 1982. Since this will be on Mother's day, his mythic adventures with Admiral Zappa will be recounted as well. Ann Arbor and Bobo Z set sail from 3-7 p.m.

Commercial Potential? Max Level will focus on the mid-70s, a period of unrest for the Magic Band. The Captain sets out on a new course with a new crew manning the ship, but the journey runs aground. What next for the good Captain? Find out from 7-10 p.m.

Sunday Mayhem 15 12:PM to 3:PM Fiesta Patronales
Hosted by Infinetly Wipes

Fiesta Patronales de la Virgen de Guadalupe 11th de Enero del 2011. The Day of Diasporatic Movement in Music and Dance, Celebrating Those With "Traveling Narrative". A Recording of a Religious Festival to the Reyna del Mexico del Este Ano. Saludos de Pueblo , La Laha, Municipio de Mixtlan Jalisco. The Fiestas patronales ("patronage festivals" in English) are yearly celebrations held in countries influenced by Spanish culture. A fiesta patronal is usually dedicated to a saint or virgin, who is the patron of whichever city holds the fiesta. Usually, town members adorn the town streets with colorful decorations and other things. In big cities, there are particular fiestas for each neighborhood, usually about the patron saint for the local parish. Depending to the budget of the town, the fiestas patronales may last just one day (the day of the saint being honored) or nine days called el novenario. Most Latin American countries dedicate the first day to the saint or virgin being celebrated; in Puerto Rico, the musical and entertainment festivities begin right away. Most Fiestas patronales feature verbenas, live entertainment by famous international or local singers, amusement parks, and street vendors, among other things, during the celebration. Fiestas patronales are not national holidays, because they only reflect the celebration of one city or town and are religious celebrations.

Six Strings in Stereo: The Double Lead Guitar Special

Monday Mayhem 16 7:PM to 10:PM
Six Strings in Stereo: The Double Lead Guitar Special
Hosted by Pete Dixon, Earl Grey, & Joe Shlabotnik
The primal aesthetic of "2 guitars, bass, and drums" still holds sway with the great majority of most rock outfits. However, what to do when the abilities (and/or egos) of both guitarists threaten the treasured dynamic of rhythm + lead? Result: Two lead guitarists!

We shall examine, celebrate, and quite literally dissect (through the magic of stereo separation) the double lead guitar throughout the Rock Era. Harmony, interplay, trade-offs, call & response, counter punching, and the elusive (but glorious) simultaneous solo will all be experienced anew. From primitive proto-punk and psychedelia, through the time honored twin leads of classic 70's FM rock, to poly-rhythmic post rock and experimental noise, no double axis of axes will be off limits.

Headphones recommended for maximum six string splittage*

On January 18, college radio station KUSF was taken off the air without warning and University of San Francisco is attempting to sell the station's license to Classical Public Radio Network out of Los Angeles. Although KUSF DJs are fighting the sale, this turn of events has left them without a permanent radio home. We're happy to bring back a small slice of KUSF during Mayhem this year on KFJC. Dj Schmeejay will present Radiodrome Without a Home, three hours of his inimitable blend of eras and genres, spanning a century of recorded musics and ephemera. The kind of radio that makes us re-examine the ways in which we connect things. Visceral, cinematic, and still broadcasting live from the Pittsburgh in your mind. You may have heard Dj Schmeejay on KFJC's airwaves on February 18th when we aired the "KUSF DJs in Exile" live broadcast from Amoeba Records in San Francisco. If you missed it, you can see the playlist and archives here

Teiji Ito : International Experimentation and Downtown Music

Friday Mayhem 27 7:PM to 10:PM
Hosted by Pete Dixon and Anoush Ella

With only one album of his theater music having been released at the time of his death in 1982, this special will trace the creative legacy of Teiji Ito (1935-1982) from his first fateful meeting with Maya Deren in 1952 through decades of composing for stage performances. Born into a musical family, Ito's combination of Haitian percussion and traditional Japanese instrumentation fit the experimental theater scene of 1960's New York quite well. Since John Zorn's Tzadik label started issuing archival releases of Ito's work in 1998, his music has become more accessbile and a greater understanding of the early roots of global underground sound have been made possible.

And through this revolting graveyard of the universe the muffled, maddening beating of drums, and thin, monotonous whine of blasphemous flutes from inconceivable, unlighted chambers beyond Time; the detestable pounding and piping whereunto dance slowly, awkwardly, and absurdly the gigantic, tenebrous ultimate gods ? the blind, voiceless, mindless gargoyles whose soul is crawling chaos.

Tales of the Eight Second Orchestra: The Mellotron Special Pt.9

Monday Mayhem 30 7:PM to 11:PM
Hosted by Pete Dixon, Earl Grey, & Joe Shlabotnik
Pete, Earl, & Joe can't stop unearthing more examples of Mellotron use in a wide variety of music both old and new. Invented in the U.S. in the 50's as the Chamberlin, but renamed and developed in England in the 60's, this curious keyboard instrument uses strips of magnetic tape activated by each key to reproduce many different types of prerecorded sound: it was a sampler for decades before the term was coined! It was much favored by pop, psychedelic, and progressive bands from the late 60's, but fell out of favor as the 70's progressed. It has undergone a revival of interest in recent years as new bands find its unique analog sound compelling.

Sleeves on Hearts

Hosted by Cynthia Lombard and DJ Irwin

On January 18, college radio station KUSF was taken off the air without warning and University of San Francisco is attempting to sell the station's license to Classical Public Radio Network out of Los Angeles. Although KUSF DJs are fighting the sale, this turn of events has left them without a permanent radio home. We're happy to bring back a small slice of KUSF during Mayhem this year on KFJC. DJ Irwin will present "sleeves on hearts" taking a trip through the vast musical map. Miles Davis to Betty Davis Slowdive to Sylvester Julee Cruise to Celia Cruz You may have heard Irwin on KFJC's airwaves on February 18th when we aired the "KUSF DJs in Exile" live broadcast from Amoeba Records in San Francisco.
