WARNING HALLOWEEN HeaderWell even thought Warning Radio has been more or less DEAD for just about a year I couldn’t resist getting in on the act again this year and creating another Halloween mix. Mostly because last year I had so many songs that I did not include on the first Halloween Special but in reality I really just wanted an excuse to use a the sound clip “I Got A Rock” from the Peanuts The Great Pumpkin. Enjoy the mix and weather you are taking in a party, heading out to a bar or trekking the neighborhood with the kids be safe and have fun.

WARNING RADIO HALLOWEEN SPECIAL PODCAST

WARNING HALLOWEEN HeaderI’ve been kicking around the idea of doing a halloween podcast for a few years. Halloween mixes are not uncommon and this year I could not resist getting in on the act. I mean it’s kind of a no brainer. With bands like Bauhaus, Joy Division and countless other darkwave and electro/industrial bands to choose from it was begging to be done. I didn’t stray too far from some of the alternative classics that come to mind when talking about a Halloween mix but I threw in just enough other tunes in to keep it fresh. Enjoy the mix for a limited time and look for Warning Radio Episode 011 coming very soon.

Happy Halloween,
Matthew Rubbish

THE CURE: GIVE THEM THEIR DUE!

Posted in DREAM POP, GOTH, ROCK & ROLL HALL OF FAME, THE CURE on September 29, 2011 by matthewrubbish

After some not so great news last week with official announcement of the breakup of R.E.M., this week boasts some stellar news in the world of classic alternative and indie with The Cure being named one of the 2012 nominees for induction to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

Iv’e often wondered if some of the classic alt “heavy hitters” would get their due with the hall. Several bands like The Smiths, Joy Division/New Oder, Depeche Mode, The Pixies, The Jesus & Mary Chain and a number of others in my mind are all very deserving and should be recognized not just for being ahead of their time but for the huge influence we have seen them become in music over the past 20-25 years.

As for The Cure, well they are right there and I couldn’t be happier to see them even get the nomination. I think they are far from shoe-ins but I think they deserve it. The Cure have had a great career, great songs and most important to me I really believe they have been a huge influence on a number of bands and will continue to do so.

Hop on over to the RnR Hall website and check out the 2012 nominees (which also includes Red Hot Chili Peppers, Small Faces, Beastie Boys and many more) and you can even cast your vote for who you think  should make it in.

WARNING RADIO RECOMMENDS

Posted in DANCE PARTY, GOTH, INDUSTRIAL on October 28, 2010 by matthewrubbish

WOW! After a few weeks of irregular posts I’m def making up for it this week. I know a lot of you are not from Baltimore but since that is where I live I know there are a bunch of you out there who check out the blog that are so chalk this one up as another one for the Bmore/DC area peeps.

A few noteworthy events coming up I’d like to mention. If you are a fan of what is played on Warning Radio chances are you will certainly dig one or possibly all of these upcoming happenings.

First is this Sunday and a very special Halloween show at Bourbon Street in Baltimore. It’s the “Select City” Tour w/ RECOIL featuring Alan Wilder of Depeche Mode. Should be a great show but with the added fact thats it’s on Halloween that lends an extra bit of excitement. The show also includes performances from Rhys Fulber (of Front Line Assembly) and local bmore dark new wave rockers The Perfects. Check the BOURBON STREET website for all the info!

Next up I.M.P and Rams Head Live welcome THE CULT to bmore on Tuesday November 2nd. They are touring (nationwaide for the non bmore peeps) behind their latest release Capsule 1. But I’m sure they are bound to play all the classics that made them the post-punk goth rock heroes we know and love! Check out the RAM’S HEAD website for tix and all the info you need!

And finally, the Battle for New Wave Supremacy continues Friday, November 12th at THE OTTOBAR with The Cure/Depeche Mode/New Order/Duran Duran dance party. This is the first time this party has happened in a while but I’ve heard this is a great time with non stop dancing all night. Doors are at 9pm but get down early for no cover and $2 drinks before 10pm. Also check out the killer poster for the event (shown at top) by the amazing bmore illustrator/designer Donald Ely.
