Tonight at 11, UKNY says farewell to summer and kicks leaves with The Pastels, Summer Camp, Oliver Wilde, Fossil Collective and The Wave Pictures. Since electronic pioneer Gary Numan returns with his first album in seven years on October 15, we'll hear a track from that dark, defiant record.
Canada's prestigious Polaris Prize will be announced this Monday, September 23, so the Commonwealth Cut will explore one of the more intriguing nominees for that award, A Tribe Called Red.
Join me for UKNY Saturday nights at 11 following Vin Scelsa's "Idiot's Delight"® and Marshall Crenshaw's "The Bottomless Pit" on 90.7 WFUV, also streaming online.
Out late enjoying summer's last hurrah? You can find UKNY in the FUV archives for two weeks after broadcast.
