This is the 45th edition of Not American Top 40, and we’re unsure of the significance, though we acknowledge a lost opportunity. Tune in to hear music themed to the number 45 is all its glory. Tune in to hear Stars on 45, Hooked on Classics, The Ex, Pain Teens, The Olsen Twins and Neu! amongst many other discordant discos.
DJ Scummy B returns to the Freeform Portland studios only to discover he has no bloody idea what the Sam Hell he’s doing. But he’s live and on the edge, or Livin’ on the Edge, like Aerosmith in 1994, but without any Aerosmith. But he’s got some old school hardcore punk from the likes of Naked Raygun, Hüsker Dü and MDC, along with new tracks from Godflesh, Bush Tetras, Puzzle Teeth, Ceramic Dog, y más.
Relegated back to Not AT40 studios, deep underneath Southeast Portland, DJ Scummy B rummages through his favorite industrial and EBM CDs. Features Ministry, Skinny Puppy, Skrew, Angkor Wat, Malhavoc, Chemlab, Nitzer Ebb, Missing Foundation and Dissecting Table.
DJ Scummy B is finally allowed out of his basement studio lair to produce his show live from the Freeform Portland studios. It was just his birthday, so tonight it’s all self-indulgence with sets of Ornette Coleman, King Crimson, Killing Joke, Therapy?, King’s X, Deicide, Coroner, and Painkiller.
DJ Scummy B went to Spain and all he got was all these records, including industrial/EBM direct from the Libertine Records shop in Barcelona, and 80s Spanish electronic music reissues. Featuring Aviador Bro, TodoTodo, Techno Animal, Steve Marie, Druum & Melatro, Neu Verboten, The The and adult.
An uninvited guest forces his way onto the show, unintentionally summoned by the dark magick of the number 40. In between Supertramp and Abba, DJ Scummy B still manages to squeeze in plenty of jazz fusion, post-punk, thrash metal and Negativland.
Also featuring: Spongecakeman, CDr, Deodato, Wes Montgomery, Freddie Hubbard, Iguana Death Cult, Fat Fox Fanclub, Killing Joke, Salami Rose Joe Louis, Shadows, Kvelertak, Legion of the Damned, Serge Gainsbourg
The focus is on new music, not yet top 40. But who knows, maybe it will be someday? We can’t predict the future. Some guitar driven indie rock, industrial metal, doomy sounds and Fire-Toolz.
Difficult times call for difficult listening, with sounds from the 90s intersection of industrial and metal, weird electronic body music and sweet sweet noise.
Bliss out to the likes of Murder Inc., Nailbomb, Front 242, Chemlab, DJ Food, Kajem, Merzbow and Big City Orchestra.
DJ Scummy B is cleaning out his inbox and searching for his stolen tape recorder. So he’s playing newer stuff and no cassette tapes (for obvious reasons) on this edition of Not American Top 40,
The Odds and Sods of March is the the holiday celebrating the rare 5th Thursday in March. At Not American Top 40 we celebrate with industrial, punk and dub.
