Half Machine Lip Moves will not be doing a live show tonight, because Valley of the Vapors Indepedent Music Festival is in town. A replay of a previous show will be airing at the usual time tonight, 10 PM-1 AM Central Time on KUHS-LP Hot Springs 102.5 FM. However, I (OT) will be DJing at a VoV after party tonight, at the Starlite Club, from around 11:45 till closing time. I’ll be playing minimal wave/coldwave, and more.
Our longtime listener and friend Molly from Northern California joined us in the studio for one of the funnest and longest episodes of the show to date. We started with a set of EBM and industrial, then there was a block of industrial metal. We followed that with a set of music by artists that will be playing in Hot Springs at this year’s Valley of the Vapors Independent Music Festival. We played a set of music from albums that were recorded or released in 1977 to celebrate our 77th episode. Then we had a set of noise, and an excerpt from a long Coil track. We then had an hour of overtime, in which we heard Krautrock/kosmische, a bit of Anatolian rock, Russian post-punk, and noise rock and ambient.
We began this show with some EBM and Belgian New Beat tracks. Then we had a “darkwave and whatever” block. We followed that with a tribute to the late Andy Anderson, and a block of psychedelic noise rock and a spacey-prog rock track featuring Andy Anderson. Then we had a block of crunchy lo-fi industrial, and we closed with a set of dark ambient and ambient drone.
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!
