I am in the process of digitizing a bunch of live on WKDU tapes from Marina – she had a lot of bands on her radio show in the 90s and mostly they have been un-shared until now. To start off here is More Fiends live on WKDU from February 16, 1999.
I believe this is the last lineup for More Fiends (?) with Allen Fiend = bass, Elizabeth Fiend = side guitar, Bob Fiend = guitar (currently in the Pogos), Dave Fiend = drums (ex Kitschchao, Belligerent)
Butterfly Joe Live on Marina’s show from WKDU.
They formed after the breakup of the Dead Milkmen in 1995. Made up of ex-Dead Milkmen Joe Genaro & Dean Sabatino, ex-Baby Flamehead Andy Bresnan and bassist Joe Quigley. They released one self-titled cd in 1999 which had it’s release show soon after this live broadcast. Marina also interviewd them which you can listen to here
Besides the re-formed Dead Milkmen both Dean and Joe are currently playing in the super-melodic and original indie instrumental rock music band I Think Like Midnight
Vick Logic Live on Marina’s show on WKDU from December 1994. They were Marc Beck (Crankcase, Revelogic, Ken, etc) on Vocals, Guitar, extras / Jeff Warner (Strapping Field Hands, Crankcase, Amazing Thrill Show) on Bass & Percussion / Mikey Ritz on Guitar. They were on the WKDU’s Scrapple 7″ box set. The first song got cut off and the 2nd starts into the song. There was also an interview with Marina after they played. Enjoy the low-fi songs of yearning .
Illegitimate Sons & Daughters live on Marina’s WKDU show April, 29, 1994. Band members were Tater on vocals, fiddle, various other instruments / Shamus – Acoustic Guitar, / Cher on Mandolin / Sparkplug on bass drum / Miss Sophie on Banjo (missing that day was vocalist Miss Harriet.) Many of their alter egos, at the time, where taking care of your vhs or cheese crisp needs. As well as in many other past and present bands including Creem Circus, Wastoid, Double Penetration, Slobber Mountain Boys, Sinners, The Pine Barons, O Mighty Isis, Cactus Love & La Resistance.
Sara Weaver’s band Swisher Live on Marina’s show on WKDU from April 07, 1999 also including an interview with the band.
“Hey, this is pretty nifty girl pop with an edge and still enough sweets and hooks to attract your wimpier BELLE & SEBASTIAN-loving younger sibling. The vocals have an almost old KRISTIN HERSH-like quality with music that’s more UK fuzzpop than Boston art-shamble. Hell, its even got that twangy guitar thing to get your older college-rock sister jumping. Hell, this is fun for the whole hipster family! Find myself digging this despite myself. Wimpy and squeaky-clean, but the most fun I’ve had in a while.”
-Maximum Rock ‘N’ Roll
Very sadly Sara died from cancer in 2002. For more info and it looks like you can still purchase Swisher’s 2 cds – Go to the Weave wbesite
WKDU free band bash from October 1985. There were a lot of bands at this show – most of the Video is of Homo Picnic and 5 Story Fall but there is also some of Oblivion, M Fakter, and Ambush Bugs. Apparently more bands where going to play (Dead Milkmen plus others) but the company doing the sound and/or Drexel security pulled the plug. At the end of the 2nd Homo Picnic clip there is a short interview with them. I just realized I forgot to try and figure out the song titles (if anyone knows them please add them in a comment) Also if anyone has the 5 Story Fall demo please let me know it would be great to put those up.
To the best of my knowledge all of the music links are for recordings that are out of print but if you enjoy what you hear, buy other records and support the artist(s) and/or labels: if you don't approve of having your material displayed and would like to have it down...Email Me @
