Forte 1

The rumors are true...I've retired the Obscuro! radio program for the time being. It may pop up again sometime down the road, but for now it's finished. I felt that I'd done pretty much all I could within the self-imposed guidelines of the show, and honestly it got a little tiring spending hours digging for crazy shit each week.

That does NOT mean I'll be retiring this fact, I still plan on posting plenty o' wacky music and wacky music compilations...just at my own leisure. From now on, I'll also be posting playlists/podcasts/whatnot to do with Forte, WIDR's 3-hour metal program Friday nights 11-2 am which I have adopted. Don't worry..I'll be bringing my own brand of bizarr-o to the show, and a lot of it will be focusing on the most noncommercial metal music I can find.

Here's the playlist for this past Friday night, my first official foray into Forte, with guest-host Jake the Snake:

Repulsion - Maggots in Your Coffin
Death - Regurgitated Guts
Darkthrone - Paragon Belial
Cathedral - Picture of Beauty and Innocence/Commiserating the Celebration
Dead Horse - Rock Lobster
Burzum - Jesus' Tod (Death of Jesus)
Mortician - Driller Killer
Type O Negative - Bloody Kisses/A Death in the Family
Malicious Onslaught - Corpseifier
Sleep - Dragonaut
Godflesh - Like Rats (request)
Horse the Band - Murder (request)
Iron Maiden - Another Life
Dethklok - Briefcase full of Guts
Eyehategod - Ruptured Heart Theory
Brutal Truth - Godplayer
Faith No More - War Pigs
Irrwisch - Leer
Leviathan - The Bitter Emblem of Dissolve (request)
Cannibal Corpse - Split Wide Open
Anata - The Conductor's Departure
Pantera - 5 Minutes Alone
NME - Brickwall
Moss - Subterraen II
Motorhead - Jailbait
Mayhem - Funeral Fog
Orcustus - Conversion

Quite a bit of it is similar to what I played when subbing for the program last week, so hopefully with some time to devote to record-digging this week, it'll be a little more varied come next Friday night.

...and here is the playlist for the final episode of Obscuro, which was a best-of chronicling the past year and a half of the show:

Kenneth Higney - No Heavy Trucking
Debris - Witness
MC J'Ro'J - Let's Jump
Randy Rice - Mrs. Bitch
Jerry Solomon - Chivalry of Early 50's
Raven - Raven Mad Jam
Freddie Blassie - Pencil Neck Geek
Harry Perry - Message
Bruce Haack - Motorcycle Ride
Jim Shepard - Pull the Switch, Henry
Konrad - My Girl Likes to Buy
Virgin Insanity - In the Eyes
Chrome - Half Machine Lip Moves
Stephen David Heitkotter - I Don't Mind
Yma Sumac - Chuncho
Coven - Choke, Thirst, Die
Sensational - Freak Styler
White Coffee - Voodoo (Obscuro! theme song)
Gleneil - Cheepy Chappy and Ito
Sun City Girls - Dreamland
Bobb Trimble - Night at the Asylum
Robbie the Werewolf - Lucifer
V-3 - Caucasian White
Simon Finn - Jerusalem

Here's the podcast for that.

Unfortunately, there isn't a podcast page for Forte yet, but there should be pretty soon.

I will miss Obscuro, but I did enjoy your subbing on Forte, so I look forward to that.

I'll probably miss it a bit, too...I just started coming up empty-handed a bit too much music-wise and figured I'd worn out my supply of strange stuff. Plus, I wouldn't want WIDR's only metal show to disappear! There'll still be plenty of strangeness, and I'm gonna keep putting all the whacked-out stuff I find up here periodically.
