Mikl-Em plays a non-compromising mix of punk, dub, glitchy electronica, new wave, oddities, and everything else. Each week usually has a theme.

Can Haz All Saints n' Death
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.
