New York will be overrun with bands from October 15-19 when the CMJ Music Marathon takes over virtually every music venue in the city. On UKNY tonight at 11, a preview of some of those British artists making a CMJ splash, like The History of Apple Pie, Duologue, Joanna Gruesome, Public Service Broadcasting and James Bay (who is playing the FUV Live at CMJ showcase).
Plus, new music from Prefab Sprout's Paddy McAloon (pictured) who released Crimson Red this week. It's McAloon's first collection of fresh material in a decade, since the release of 2003's I Trawl the Megahertz. Prefab Sprout's 2009 release, Let's Change the World with Music, leaned on older songs dating from the '90s.
Join me on UKNY, Saturday nights at 11p.m. EDT following Vin Scelsa's "Idiot's Delight"® and Marshall Crenshaw's "The Bottomless Pit" on 90.7 WFUV, also streaming online.
Watching Bruce Willis and Katy Perry on "SNL" this week instead? You can find UKNY in the FUV archives up to two weeks after broadcast.
