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

COVERS 2!

WARNINGWOW! Due to the response outta people from the recent alternative classics covers mix I thought “what the hell” I might as well keep it going. Basically when I started to compile all the tracks for the covers podcasts I started a spotify playlist and kept adding to it as I would think of possible songs to add to the mix.

So since there were quite a number of songs that didn’t make the cut on the 45 minute podcast, I thought I’d pass along the rest of playlist.

And of course another BONUS video from the AV Club

WARNING RADIO 010

Posted in 120 MINUTES, COVER SONGS, JESUS & MARY CHAIN, LOVE AND ROCKETS, PODCASTS, R.E.M., SONIC YOUTH, THE CURE, THE SMITHS on September 5, 2013 by matthewrubbish

Whether true to the original or a completely new take I’ve always been a sucker for cover songs. I couldnt tell you how many mixtapes I created for people back in the day comprised completely of covers. I also have a funny (slightly embarrassing) story that I will spare you about knocking back beer after beer in a basement bar in Montreal because of a Creedence cover band. Damn that Molson Export!

Not a huge milestone but I had been thinking for a while for a theme for Warning Radio’s 10th podcast and the covers idea was a bit of a no brainer so I went with it. This time though I decided to mix it up a bit and not only include some of Warning Radio’s most well known artists covering  tunes, I mixed in a few newer bands that I dig tackling some alternative classics.

WARNING RADIO PODCAST 010 TRACK LISTING
01. SONIC YOUTH – I Know There’s An Answer (The Beach Boys)
02. TERRY EDWARDS – Never Understand (Jesus & Mary Chain)
03. THE MARCH VIOLETS – Miss Amanda Jones (Rolling Stones)
04. THE DRUMS – Birthday (The Sugarcubes)
05. THE CURE – Hello, I Love You (The Doors)
06. LOVE AND ROCKETS – Lucifer Sam (Pink Floyd)
07. DUM DUM GIRLS – There Is a Light That Never Goes Out (The Smiths)
08. THE SMITHS – Golden Lights (Twinkle)
09. R.E.M. – Crazy (Pylon)
10. BLACK REBEL MOTORCYCLE CLUB – Let The Day Begin (The Call)
11. ORCHESTRAL MANOEUVRES IN THE DARK – VCR (The XX)

INTO THE FUTURE!

Posted in MINISTRY, REISSUE, STONE ROSES, THE CURE, THE SMITHS, THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS, Uncategorized on January 20, 2012 by matthewrubbish

No not another post about 120 Minutes! Taking a look back 2011 was a pretty eventful one for classic alternative. From with the 20th anniversities of classic reissues such as Nevermind, Actung Baby, and Primal Scream’s Screamadelica. To big new events about the break up of R.E.M. and the announcement of The Stone Roses getting back at it for some gigs (and possible new record) and finally the debut of Spotify in America.

So what’s on tap for 2012? With the slew of more reissues sure to be coming down the pike and some much anticipated shows, here are a few highlights of whats to come in the new year in the  world of classic alternative and new wave.

THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS celebrate the 30th anniversary of their second album Lincoln. TMBG are set to embark on a full US tour (in support of a new album) and will perform the entire album Lincoln in L.A. and Atlanta check. Details HERE

RHINO RECORDS who are never short on a more reissues than anyone can shake a stick at have a fine roster will be at it again in 2012 with some real heavy hitters including Ministry, Ramones,INXS, Depeche Mode and many more Details HERE

BEGGARS ARCHIVE is also getting in on the act with a number of classic reissues and best of collections as well. Highlights include best of comps from the Go-Betweens and Belly as well as reissues from Cocteau Twins, Beck, Bauhaus and the Charlatans.

But of course probably the biggest and most anticipated event to look forward to is the Stone Roses reunion gigs. I’m crossing all my fingers (and toes) the boys decide to bring the tour to america!

Best of luck in 2012 folks and don’t be afraid to let us know what you are most looking forward to this year.

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.
