XL Halloween special: Love, Blood and Wine.

Halloween is almost upon us, and once more, we have arisen from the crypt to serve up an extra-large selection of appropriately themed tracks. Did you recognize the sample in the intro? We’ll tip a classic movie about eternal life, and we’ll even have an interview with the vampire. Or indeed, several vampires, who love […]

A Nightcall From The Crypt

Strange Boutique – Quicksand Minds I had never heard of them before last week, but Strange Boutique is a band that rose out of the ashes of the Washington hardcore scene. Because before Strange Boutique, there was Madhouse. Madhouse was playing punk and death rock. They later transformed into a much more melodic and atmospheric […]

Autumn Leaves Us Thirsty

Gene Loves Jezebel – Desire (Discover 1986) This is the band of British Twin brothers Jay and Michael Aston. If you look them up, you’ll see that they look the same, sound the same, and sing the same way. They started in black and white but evolved into a very colorful band in the mid-’80s […]

Interview – Metakross

On Metakross I transform the dark and twisted things within me into music, to make them into a dance or a story. My thoughts and feelings, mostly negative, are my energy source. Still, authors like Ernest Hemingway or Jack London also inspire me. I admire characters who keep going no matter what, and some of […]

The Dreams In Which I’m Dying

Hi guys and girls, and welcome to your weekly escape from insanity. The world has gone mad, and we’re not talking about the COVID pandemic. Let’s take our mind off things, and enjoy some music and the stories behind it together. For the next hour, your soul belongs to us and will be immersed in […]

The Episode With Your Funeral

In this episode we take you along for a wild ride. We have horrors stoties, death rock, killer tracks, and you can hear your funeral right here on our show. But first, come with us to the weird world of blue sunshine, where we unearthed the recipe for the Perfect Murder… The Glove- Perfect Murder […]

The Many Shades of Gray

The End – Flock of Seagulls I have sweet memories of this band. When I was working at a big motorcycle expo in Amsterdam in 2005. I was trying to sell subscriptions to visitors to a motor magazine. I did really well,  and was exhausted after each day and went home on my bicycle with […]

Interview – Secret Sounds

Wilmer Wolf on Secret Sounds, the 80’s and his musical heritage. My band, Secret Sounds, existed for about 7 years, back in the Eighties – which is quite a long time for a band. It’s long ago, and it’s done. I don’t like bands that do endless reunions trying to hold on to something long […]

Interview: Violent Vickie

Violent Vickie on Serotonin I’m a chill, funny sober vegan hippie. These days, I’m no longer into alcohol and drugs, and not quite as punk as I was before. I am powered by fruit, greens, air & sun. And Riot Grrrl. I also used to listen to Ani Difranco a lot, too, but not so […]

From Lima with Love

Psychic TV – Godstar (allegory & Self 1988) “Godstar” is basically a rock ‘n’ roll tale about the life and death of Brian Jones, one of the founding members of The Rolling Stones. If the lyrics didn’t give it away. It sure was that guitar riff or part of it, from “Brown Sugar”. We discussed Throbbing […]
