Can Haz All Saints n' Death
November 1, 2011 10:00pm


This installment of Can Haz DJ occurred on The Day of the Dead--All Saints' Day.

Now I like Australian punk band The Saints more than the average fellow, but I couldn't quite see playing a full 3 hours of them. So I backed down from an "All Saints" theme. But I did manage to fit in 9 songs of theirs (don't worry, many of them were 2-minutes long). Besides that we paid tribute to the end of a marriage--Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth called it quits after about 30 years as husband-wife rockers. So a big block of Sonic Youth tunes was requisite.

Besides that it was songs on the themes of Death and Saints, and a couple flashbacks to last week's math rock & halloween themes. Oh and 1 death metal Christmas carol. And a song by Paul McCartney's brother's band. That's it. Honest, officer.

Can Haz UK (the Punk xtra from 9/21 12am-2am)
September 21, 2011 12:00am


My September 20th Can Haz UK show (the first of two focused on British music) ended with a hot hour of punk, all British and mostly lesser known (or at least lesser played in the 21st Century). I kept playing punk tunes past the 1AM mark, when the podcast cuts off.

Now I've compiled those last 2 hours (12AM-2AM), the second hour of which was not part of the original pod. And you get a concentrated hour of pure punk. It wanders off theme a little bit towards the very end (I set up a playlist for after I left the studio, long story...). But it's all great music, it totally rocks, and I hope you enjoy it!

I damn happy about the podcast cover, too, by the way.

Can Haz UK -- an all British episode
September 20, 2011 10:00pm


It was all music from the British Isles including a selection of John Peel's personal favorite songs of all time, and a final hour that was all '77 era UK punk (mostly lesser known bands). I didn't nearly get through the huge stack of music that I'd brought to play--so that means there'll be more UK next week!

I will be cutting a separate podcast which is actually 2 hours of punk stuff--the 3rd hour of this show and the hour after which I programmed but wasn't in studio for. Look for that to be posted soon.

Can Haz ABC DJ -- plus special East Coast Earthquake, Richmond VA set
August 23, 2011 10:00pm


A really fun show! Started off with a set of bands from my hometown of Richmond, Virginia. Bands dating from 1984 (Death Piggy!) to just a couple years ago (Galusha Grow), with a bonus couple bands from close by: D.C. and Harrisonburg, VA. All to commemorate the biggest earthquake the east coast has felt since the time of the last World War.

After that I did an alphabetical stumble of bands from Adam & the Ants to ZZ Top touring hip hop, Punk, Post-Punk, "Alt-Country" and the latest electronic styles along the way. Uncle Tupelo loves being next to Venetian Snares, I promise!

Finished up with a bit of this and that, including Akufen shaking up an old blues tune, a collaboration between Mark E. Smith of The Fall and Mouse on Mars (Von Südenfed), and some classic dub from Burning Spear.

Haz Can DJ: Mikl-em mixes it up!
August 16, 2011 10:00pm


For the August 16th installment of Can Haz DJ, I really mixed things up. Literally. This was the most dynamic live mix ever on Can Haz DJ, with an electronic, dubby foundation punctuated by lots of interesting comedy samples.

Featuring a lot of electronica from the likes of Prefuse 73, Anika, Ventian Snares, bus, Luke Vibert, Blunt Instrument, B. Fleischmann, and Phase Selector Sound, plus some rock & roll from Hoover and Art Brut, and lots of comedy dropped in featuring Steve Allen, Lenny Bruce, Bill Hicks, David Cross, Bill Bailey, Peter Cook and Steve Martin.

It was unpredictable, hard to describe and LOTS of fun. Enjoy!!

Can Haz Covers show from Can Haz DJ
August 2, 2011 10:00pm

Lots of fun, folks like Firewater, Danny Barnes, Hugo Largo, Califone, Johnny Cash, Dinosaur Jr., The Replacements, and Barry Adamson covering the likes of Kiss, Soundgarden, Depeche Mode, The Byrds, Johnny Cash, Beck, The Kinks, Bob Dylan, Nancy Sinatra, Nine Inch Nails and Neil Young.

Details to follow, keep an eye on the Can Haz DJ blog for an updated post with the full playlist:

Can Haz Dust: We Take a Step to the Country side
July 26, 2011 10:00pm


You can call it what you want. "Americana", "Roots Music", "Country", "Western", "New Country", "Cow Punk", "Shockabilly" (or what ever other 'billy ya like), "Bluegrass", or....

I don't care what you call it. I don't like all of it. But some of it I like a LOT. So I came up with the name "Dust" and that's what I call what I like of it.

Tonight on Can Haz DJ I played a LOT of it. From folks like Bad Livers, Lee Hazelwood, Califone, Uncle Tupelo, Townes Van Zandt, Steve Earle, Tom Waits, Moonshine Willy, Rex, it goes on and on. Some of it rocks like Scott H Biram or Southern Culture On The Skids. Some is poppy, some is even a little electronic-y (lookin @ you Califone). And lest you think it's hormonally biased... Cat Power, Abra Moore, and several other ladies have their voices heard.

Anyway how I think of Dust is a taste thang going back in your throat, like just beyond where you can reach, like it were a drug comin' on, and you start droppin yer g's, like me.

Or put another way it's stuff with a twang or a twinge or banjo or a rootsy folks americana-a-y kinda thang. some electric, some acoustic; some like bluegrass, some like blues, some gospel; some rockin', some maudalin; songs on scoundrels and "drankin'", broke up hearts n' cars n' pickle buckets full of gas-o-line. Usually it's stuff with a bit more character and some angular elements that set it out from the mainerstream country norm. But not always.

Playlist coming eventually, but do enjoy this pod now, please.

Can Haz Dust n' Dub (July 12, 2011)
July 12, 2011 10:00pm


An abbreviated show this week, starting with a big block of dub, following the heels of the live Bakersfield Backbeat remote at El Rio. Then veering into another sensational evening of delicious echoey dub to chase the evening hours away.

Starting off with another great tune off Bob Dylan's Highway 61 Revisited, and then touring some like-minded rootsy, American-ish tunes. Red Red Meat, Danny Barnes, Reverend Horton Heat, The Handsome Family, even Husker Du. Then we went deep on dub, including a couple tunes from the "Dub Will Tear Us Apart" dub tribute to Joy Division.

Can Haz Electro-dub: Adrian Sherwood to Hyperdub and more
June 28, 2011 10:00pm


This week I featured Dub Music in an electronic context, as opposed to more traditional reggae dub. Including music old & new from On-U Sound dub-genius producer Adrian Sherwood; some tracks from ground-breaking dub/dubstep label Hyperdub; and a wide-ranging selection of dub from the likes of Bill Laswell, Pitch Black, Deadbeat, Sly & Robbie, Test Dept, Pan American and much more. And there's even some proper dubstep, brand new from Mimosa and Blunt Instrument.

The show kicks off with a flashback to rock stuff, classic and other, in quick homage to the last 2 weeks of Rock on Can Haz DJ.

Then it was straight into the delicious deep bass, skittery riddims and echoey echos. A really fun, flowing show--I hope you like it!

Can Haz ROCK all night long
June 14, 2011 10:00pm


All ROCK all night long. The only theme, the only agenda is pedal-to-the-metal driving rock & roll. You'll hear some of the most mainstream tunes ever on Can Haz DJ, call them guilty pleasures, call them

It was pure rock from the 3rd song to 1AM Weds morning (and beyond). From Albini to Zevon and Hooker to Van Halen, Rock in all its flavors of Rock from Cheap Tricks to Jesus Lizards and AC/DC to X.

SPECIAL: 1AM+ Late night hip hop, birth of Mutiny Radio, and sound collage for pirate radio...
June 1, 2011 1:00am


Late night hours from 1AM to 2... something AM. This cannot be explained, nor excused. After the conclusion of the lengthy hip hop set from the main show, something else happens. A variety of odd and compelling self-indulgences that benefit no one, and may delight you if you are truly sick and twisted. Along the way a brand new renegade radio station is born and Hunter S Thompson rambles on about a well-known biker gang.

The regular 10pm-1am podcast is being fine-tuned and will appear within a day or so.

Can Haz Dub, Hip Hop, and the late Gil Scott-Heron
May 31, 2011 10:00pm

After that a nice phat slice of hip hop including turntablist DJs (Rob Swift, X-ecutioners, & Invisible Scratch Piklz) and then finishing up with a dub set. Much fun had by all

Ghostly and Armageddon
May 17, 2011 10:00pm

We were also on the eve of what was supposed to be The Rapture (on 5/21/2011), so I included a few songs about Armageddon and related matters. Including tunes by Bad Religion, Fishbone, Oingo Boingo, and Aldo Nova.

All that and a flashback to the previous week's feature on 1977 era punks then & now. And lots more, check the playlist link...

Plus a flashback to the previous week's theme of worldly electronica: Tabla Beat Science, M.I.A., Pablo's Eye, and Balkan Beat Box amongst others.

Can Haz An Electronic World, X-Ray R.I.P. & Piano Hangover
May 3, 2011 10:00pm


“Fusion” is a dated term, or maybe the music has finally caught up with the concept. Let’s see. The musical traditions and sensibilities of Africa, India, Mexico, Cuba and the rest of the world brought to producing beats, samples, electronics, not to mention the multi-ethnic-experiments of Bill Laswell or Afro Celt Soundsystem. On Tonight’s Can Haz DJ we’ll survey these and other current musical hybrids on a world spinning tour.

We also flashed-back to piano month, just ended, with one last chunk of great piano players. We played a tune for Poly and one from the newly released Gaiman-Palmer-Folds-Kulash project 8in8, plus a song off the brand new Tied & Tickled Trio CD (who play that catchy CanHazDJ theme song).

12 out of 10 dentists recommend Can Haz DJ, for their patients who chew radio.

Can Haz the Piano Month Finale
April 26, 2011 10:00pm


The 4th and final installment of CanHazDJ's self-appointed Piano Month for April, 2011. Benches warmed. Ivories tickled. Ebony and Ivory, together in keyboard harmony. We've already run the gamut from Keith Jarrett to Tom Lehrer and Alan Sherman to Jelly Roll Morton.

Even more tonight, as we try and cram in all the best players that haven't yet been played (and more from several who have already). Oscar Peterson, Paul Bley, Nat King Cole, Harry Connick, Cecil Taylor, Phillip Glass, Art Tatum, Andrew Hill, McCoy Tyner and a whole lot more.

Can Haz Death (Hell is for Stranglers)
March 8, 2011 10:00pm


Can Haz DJ gets hella morbid, but in a really fun way.

Death is the theme this time: with a dash of murder, a bit of heaven, a blast of hell, and special set of The Stranglers (cuz Hugh Cornwell was just in town). It may surprise you, but it's actually a very upbeat and fun show full of great music, theme be damned as the case may be.

The lineup runs from Oingo Boingo to Charles Mingus, Warren Zevon to Squirrel Nut Zippers to Crime to Chumbawumba to Pavement. Yup, that is wide-ranging.

Full Playlist:

Can Haz Ribot Lux + Sabbath Redux
March 1, 2011 10:00pm


This week focused on a big fat chunk of music featuring guitarist Marc Ribot, including his work as sideman for the likes of Tom Waits, Foetus, Elvis Costello, and T-Bone Burnett, as well as his solo work. Also a couple tunes from Son Lux, who was readying a brand new album at the time. And a robust flashback to the previous week’s Black Sabbath / Sabbath covers theme.

Can Haz Sabbath
February 22, 2011 10:00pm


On this show: The Velvet Underground official “Bootleg Volume 1″ aka The Quine Tapes featuring very early VU live in San Francisco; also a bit of the brand new Radiohead album "King of Limbs"; and more Black Sabbath covers than you can safely shake a stick at. And lots more.

Can Haz Short Luv RadioHead
February 15, 2011 10:00pm


In honor of Valentine's Day, there we have a set of great-love-songs-under-2-minutes-long. In anticipation of the imminent release of the new Radiohead album "King of Limbs", we played a big set of awesome Radiohead covers. And I also mixed in a set of wacky IT Themes (really goofy corporate tunes about Enterprise Software companies).

All that and a flashback to the previous week’s ads N Peel Sessions theme. Then finished the night with a mixed bag of Punk, Jazz, Dub, “Americana” (or whatever you call aged-punks playing banjo through effects pedals), New Wave, select Comedy, and a bit of everything else. Hopefully we did the opposite of making John Peel turn over in his grave.

Can Haz Ads N uhPeel Sessions
February 8, 2011 10:00pm


After a brief flash of musical hang-over from the previous week’s show (on CatsNJazz), I honored the Super Ad Bowl by playing vintage ads, many with sound by the great Raymond Scott, electronic music pioneer & jazz composer whose work was re-purposed by Carl Stalling for Looney Tunes.

I also fit in a bunch of TV show themes, including the “Bewitched” with lyrics, sung by Peggy Lee. Also I gave a bunch of focus to one of my heroes: John Peel by playing a big fat block of music recorded at Peel Sessions. That included, naturally, a number of songs by The Fall (his favorite band of all time).

Another sub-theme included a farewell to The White Stripes who called it quits the past week. We played 3 tracks they recorded in Peel Sessions. I also fit in a bunch of awesome covers from various Peel Sessions. And finished with a phat lickle dub set. And

Can Haz Songs In the Keyz of Cats
February 1, 2011 10:00pm


After a brief flash of musical hang-over from the previous week’s Booze n' Ska theme, Can Haz DJ went into a deep feline phase. Then in the final half hour with a jazz-focused last 30 minutes.

The touchstone for this week’s show is this lesser known album featuring but not led by John Coltrane.

From All Music:

"In 1957, the greatest year for recorded music including modern jazz, Detroit was a hot spot, a centerpiece to many hometown heroes as well as short-term residents like John Coltrane and Miles Davis. It was here that Trane connected with pianist Tommy Flanagan, subsequently headed for the East Coast, and recorded this seminal hard bop album. In tow were fellow Detroiters--drummer Louis Hayes, bassist Doug Watkins, and guitarist Kenny Burrell, with the fine trumpeter from modern big bands Idrees Sulieman as the sixth wheel. From the opening number, the classic "Minor Mishap," you realize something special is happening."

Enjoy the show!

January 25, 2011 10:00pm


The first hour is a flashback to the previous week’s booze-themed show. The alcohol-themed songs range from blues to punk and everywhere in between. From punk-drunk songs we segue to pure old school punk, then to New Wave ska, and then to old school original ska from Jamaica. A lot of amazing old ska follows, then we build into reggae and close out the night with a dub set.

Can Haz Boozez (hic)
January 18, 2011 10:00pm


All songs about alcohol... from the Kinks, Tom Waits, Minutemen, Art Brut, and much more

Can Haz Jazztronz
January 11, 2011 10:00pm


Where Jazz meets electronic, that's where this show thrives.

Can Haz DJ: 4-per-hour
January 4, 2011 10:00pm


We featured extended blocks of different artists. The idea was to play about four bands an hour (or 12 for the entire 3-hour show). We began with a block of Tied & Tickled Trio, who play the Can Haz DJ theme song "Observing Systems".

After that we went through set after set of diversely excellent music, including sets of Built to Spill (and The Treepeople, a related band), The Clash, The Pixies, The Saints, Hüsker Dü, The Fall, Califone, Tom Waits, Augustus Pablo, & The Imps. We ended up at just about 4 per hour, including some of this DJ's favorite music of all time. Hope you enjoy it, too!

Can Haz Early Days
December 28, 2010 10:00pm


Some of the earliest recordings by various acts, debuts & demos and such. Including the first recordings by Laurie Anderson, Simple Minds, David Bowie, and Jim "Foetus" Thirlwell, amongst many others. Plus early Talking Heads, Kool Keith (w/ his first group the Ultra Magnetic MC's), Marc Sandman's first band Treat Her Right, Hawkwind (playing the song Motorhead, and featuring Lemmy in the band), Captain Beefheart, and music from The Modern Lovers (led by Jonathan Richman and featuring future members of The Cars and Talking Heads). Oh and Michael Franti's original band The Beatnigs, with the original version of "Television, Drug of a Nation" which he would later re-record with Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy.

Lots more besides, another extended whirlwind of a show. Check it out. Man.

Can Haz Halloween (10/26/2010)
October 26, 2010 10:00pm


The first annual Can Haz Halloween was on Tuesday, October 26th, 02010. Just a couple months into doing the show. This is a 2-hour podcast (that's what they were back then), and I quite pleased with the song selection even if some is a little surprising. The Punk Rocky Horror Picture Show covers should surprise no one. You should enjoy this, now, please.
