Can Haz Genre Blender on Puree (7/19/2011)
On Can Haz DJ this week I turned on the genre blender and we made a musical gazpacho goulash that is best served both hot and cold at the same time.

We touched all the bases (in a special way): jazz, rap, reggae, punk, dub, dust, and a whole lot more. This episode was a great way to earn your Xaos merit badge.

Can Haz Dust n' Dub (July 12, 2011)
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
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
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...
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.

Bob Dylan's birthday and the debut of the Highway 61 Revisited feature for the next several weeks. Then a few Lee Scratch Perry related tunes, and a flashback to last week's Ghostly Apocalypse show. 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
This week we feature music from Ghostly International ( http://ghostly.com/ ), a great electronic label has been releasing kick ass electronic music for more than a decade. Artists include Michna, Dabrye, Lusine and Kiln.

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...

Mikl-em
Can Haz An Electronic World, X-Ray R.I.P. & Piano Hangover
“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

Mikl-em
Can Haz the Piano Month Finale
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.

Mikl-em
Can Haz Death (Hell is for Stranglers)
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.

Mikl-em
Can Haz Ribot Lux + Sabbath Redux
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

Can Haz Sabbath
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
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
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

Can Haz Songs In the Keyz of Cats
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: http://www.allmusic.com/album/the-cats-r165664/review

"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!

CanHazRelapseSkaPunk
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.
