Two More Radioshows for you to listen and weep to!
If you are inclined towards constantly challenging your rock’n’roll comfort zones (and Ricecooker really wants you to go out there and beat yourselves up sometimes!), there are two new net-based, streaming radioshows which you should check out.
1. RADIO EMACM: emacm/radio
Put together by one called Da Ayah Majelis (clues abound!), Radio EMACM is the true punk rock radio – punk as it should be, that is, always pushing whatever walls out there, NOT confined to your safe/sad uniformity. Hmm, am really tired of having a spiel on this every time I’m here, but listen to this and you’ll get the idea (hopefully). 2nd show is one now and featured all the true “Black Metal” classics; from John Zorn to Corrupted to Sunn O))) to Merzbow to Melvins to a Black Sabbath live song. This set slays everything out there! It makes you look at your band and friends and dejectedly say, “forget it!!”. Play loud indeed!
2. Infinite Frequencies: infinitefrequencies.blogspot.com
Carefully curated by another friend who have just got back from some travelling in Europe, IF is almost like a mirror of RADIO EMACM but with a bit more slant on the moody “darkwave” or post-goth areas of aural nightmare – pretty much “Abang Garde” and again will guarantee you a much better grasp of what is “alternative music” all about.
If you proudly think your “gore-raping grindcore” or “jap-hc meets crust” or “chaotic hc meets screamo” are all sooooo “extreme” and “anti-social”, and your “postman rock” is so dang hip and “progressive”, listen to both shows and see for yourselves how wrong you’ve been. Like I said, play loud!!
