This episode started with a tribute to the late Pete Shelley (of British punk legends The Buzzcocks) by playing some songs from his solo works, including a track from his forays into experimental synth noise. Then we moved back into industrial by premiering a brand new track by Minneapolis’s Zwaremachine and a block of “pants with spare change rattling around in the dryer industrial,” some listener requests and noisy industrial, and we closed the show with set of post-industrial and ambient—or whatever you call that kind of stuff.

We returned from our Thanksgiving break. We started with “the industrial wading pool” to help ease people in to the show. Then we went with a set of hard and heavy industrial metal, a block of dark and nihilistic industrial and EBM—I guess that’s what I’d call it; I don’t know how to describe this show much of the time—and a block of industrialized black metal. The midnight block was minimal wave and synthpop, and we closed with a block of shoegaze and ambient.

This episode started out with some new-ish industrial metal, then we went into a block of Central and Eastern European post-punk. Most of the rest of the episode leaned heavy on the heavy and noisy stuff—we had a block of “pants with spare change left in the pockets rattling around in the dryer” industrial, a block power electronics, and a block of noise before ending the show with a block of uh… a block that went from minimal wave to dark ambient.

This was a weird and episode. We started with some industrial, OT talked about difficulties with our Facebook page, then we had a pandering set for our friends Amanda and Jason in South Carolina, then we continued the autumn ambient afterglow in the last hour.

Our old foes The Radio Gremlins returned to sabotage the show by breaking the microphone but we persevered and went on anyway. We started with industrial and post-punk tracks related to the upcoming election, the media, the downfall of society. We had a set in honor of our friend DJ D (the host of the excellent show Dark Entries: Goth Radio, which was very much an influence on our show), which we followed in the last hour by autumnal ambient to continue the autumn afterglow going after Halloween.
