Tonight's UKNY at 11 has no particular direction, but is guided by the golden light of a strangely summery October.  So expect quirky gambits (Brighton's the Go! Team and the international splash of Superorganism), straightforward blasts of guitar rock (Liverpool's Trudy and the Romance and the world's David Bowie) and jazz-infused poetry and gauzy dreamscapes (Sydney's Sampa the Great and London's Tusks).

Hoping to make sense of the world via tonight's "Saturday Night Live" instead? You can always catch up to UKNY immediately after broadcast, for up to two weeks, via the FUV weekend archives.
