Short Descriptions for Mayhem Specials

On Beyond Belafonte: The Real Calypso Superheroes

Wednesday Mayhem 2 6AM-10AM
Hosted by Ann Arbor

Calypso music originated in Trinidad in the 19th century and has been a means of subversive communication since the days of slavery.

You'll meet the superheroes of Calypso since the 1930s: Roaring Lion, Lord Kitchener, Lord Invader, Mighty Sparrow, Mighty Terror and others.

Steve Albini is a Meanie

Wednesday Mayhem 2 2PM-6PM
Hosted by Monotone Heroine and Honey Bear

Everyone (or basically everyone?) knows that Steve Albini is a prolific producer. We want to focus on another facet, his bands. Playing from his wide body of work, expect to hear anything and everything Albini has been a part of during his musical career.

Sup Nerds: 20 years of Phat N Phunky Records

Wednesday Mayhem 2 10PM-2AM
Hosted by Honey Bear

Diving deep into the Phat N Phunky discography to shed some light on this bedroom record label that is celebrating its 20th anniversary. What started as a silly idea from a cat loving, anime watching punk rocker, to a humble and meaningful label. Label operator Bob Vilma takes us through the odds and ends of what the Phat N Phunky family has to offer.

Doing It To Death

Thursday Mayhem 3-Friday Mayhem 4 2AM Thu-2AM Fri
Hosted by Spliff Skankin' and others

Return of the Black Saint

Friday Mayhem 410AM-2PM
Hosted by Goodwrench

Black Saint is an exquisite avant-jazz label established in Milan, Italy in 1975. Their catalog includes over 190 albums, many of them meticulously recorded in Milan with artists passing through. Back in Octorber 2006, the KFJC Jazz Collective was kicked off with an All-Black Saint set - this special offers a more informed return to the label 12 years down the line.

Worm Interface Part 1

Friday Mayhem 410PM-2AM
Hosted by Goodwrench

Worm Interface was a very special London-based electronic label associated with the Ambient Soho record store. The label began in 1994 and lasted until 2004, releasing everything from sublime ambience to mad drum & bass. Join Goodwrench for a mad roller coaster ride...

Rubble

Saturday Mayhem 5 12PM-3PM
Hosted By Carson Street

Each and every volume of The Rubble Collection is a mind blowing treasure trove of acid rock and pop. Rubble is more obscure, and in some ways more compelling, than Nuggets. The Rubble Collection features a myriad of lesser known acts and tracks. Are there bands whose names you will recognize? Maybe. Join me for three hours of rocking Rubble and find out.

Trifectas

Sunday Mayhem 6 7PM-10PM
Hosted by Droll

A Trifecta occurs when the album title, artist's name, and track name are all the same. The KFJC library has over 100 Trifectas spanning all libraries and genres, although there's enough of a metal bias to make the Trifecta seem like a genre signpost (Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, Body Count, Motorhead, Leatherwolf, etc.). Get a "Happy Feeling" and/or be a "Hallucinator"! "Slow Walkers" and "Old & in the Way" listeners are welcome. Experience that refreshing Trifecta oneness feeling over and over and over again.

The Nakatani Percussion Family

Tuesday Mayhem 8 6PM-10PM
Hosted by Max Level

An overview of solo work and collaborations by contemporary percussion master Tatsuya Nakatani. Will feature recorded interview.

On Beyond Belafonte: The Real Calypso Superheroes

Hosted by Ann Arbor

Calypso music originated in Trinidad in the 19th century and has been a means of subversive communication since the days of slavery.

Welcome to the Black Lodge

Wednesday Mayhem 9 2PM-6PM
Hosted by Monotone Heroine

David Lynch works are known for their spookiness, thrill, darkness, and details. While wildly talented, Lynch truly shines at pairing music to secure the mood of a scene or even the theme music. Tune in to hear songs from a variety of Lynch's works.

Worm Interface Part 2

Friday Mayhem 1110PM-2AM
Hosted by Goodwrench

Worm Interface was a very special London-based electronic label associated with the Ambient Soho record store. The label began in 1994 and lasted until 2004, releasing everything from sublime ambience to mad drum & bass. Join Goodwrench for a mad roller coaster ride...

Weather Report

Saturday Mayhem 12 12PM-3PM
Hosted By Carson Street

Weather Report is considered to be one of the preeminent jazz fusion bands. They outlasted all of their contemporaries with a career that lasted sixteen years. The band was nearly always a quintet of keyboards, sax, bass, drums, and percussion. Numerous personnel changes over the years kept the band fresh and innovative. They remained centered on jazz but also included various elements of art music, ethnic music, R&B, funk and rock. Tune in for the music of Weather Report.

Adrian Belew: Twang Bar King

Sunday Mayhem 13 7PM-10PM
Hosted by Droll

Adrian Belew is an experimental guitarist, popster, sideman, and railfan.

Discovered by Zappa, envied by Eno, poached by Bowie, sideman on dozens of hits, prog front-man, art popster, punny weirdo, and nice guy. Adrian Belew's signature guitar style has stayed relevant for over 40 years, he continues to be on the forefront of using effects and extended technique.

An Assortment of Audio Ailments - The Auris Apothecary label

Tuesday Mayhem 15 6PM-10PM
Hosted by Max Level

This label based in Bloomington, IN embraces obscure formats, atypical packaging, and DIY ethics. AA is notorious for, among other things, their "anti-records" releases in various formats that are difficult, sometimes nearly impossible, to play. Tune in and find out what's up with that.

Dealing With The Box

Friday Mayhem 18 10PM-2AM
Hosted by Goodwrench

'Die Welt Ist Klang' (The World is Sound) was a massive 8-CD boxed set released in 2013 to benefit the family of Fax Records label head Peter Kuhlman (Pete Namlook), who passed away suddenly in November 2012. In addition to contributions from former and current Fax artists, the set contains tributes from many other artists from around the globe. Goodwrench dives into the box and tries to make some sense of its contents.

The Best of the Best

Sunday Mayhem 20 7PM-10PM
Hosted by Droll

Releasing a Greatest Hits album is not very impressive. What is impressive is how many Greatest Hits albums an artist releases. Hear "The Best" music in the KFJC library as determined by the greatest number of Greatest Hits albums. KFJC has nearly 500 Greatest Hits compilations spanning all styles of music. Tune in to see which artist beats James Brown, Hank Williams, and Jerry Lee Lewis in the fight for the right be the called KFJC's Greatest Greatest Hits Artist. Please, No Wagering -- This is an exhibition, not a competition.

A Night and Day of the Sun

Monday Mayhem 21-Wednesday Mayhem 23 10PM Mon-2AM Wed
Hosted by Spliff Skankin' and others

Ai Records - A Retrospective

Friday Mayhem 25 10PM-2AM
Hosted by Goodwrench

Ai Records (stands for "Area Info") was a tasty British electronic label active from 2001-2011, mainly on the IDM tip. Goodwrench hosts a brief and bumpy ride through their catalog.

Winters

Saturday Mayhem 26 12PM-3PM
Hosted By Carson Street

Join me for rock and blues time with legendary brothers Johnny and Edgar Winter.

Johnny Winter (1944-2014) described as a "blues guitarist, known for his scorching riffs, flowing white hair and gravelly hard-times voice" was a versatile singer, songwriter and producer. His long career spanned the successful blues-rock albums and live performances of the 60s and 70s to his Grammy Award winning work as a producer for Muddy Waters and continued international touring until his death.

Younger brother Edgar also came blazing out of Beaumont, Texas and is best known for his musical successes in the 1970s with The Edgar Winter Group and White Trash. Adept since childhood on guitar, keyboard, saxophone and percussion, Edgar continues to write and perform rock, jazz, blues and pop music. He has also been involved in numerous film, television and advertising projects.
