Check their website out

Let me take this awkward saw
And run it against your thighs
Cut some flesh away
I’ll carry this piece of you with me
Because all I can say tonight
is that I hate you
But it would be all right
If we could see each other sometime
If I could somehow make you mine

And if not I’ll take my spoons
And dig out your blue eyes
I’ll swallow them down to my colon
They’re gonna burn like hell tonight

Temporary Change To Weekend Schedule

The Headbangers will not be on this weekend as there simply is no time for us to put up the show due to exams. It will be back soon, we promise!

Weekends will continue using the normal weekday schedule for now.

Updates!

If there are constant problems to the streaming, please do let us know and we will try to check the connection/quality settings.

Also, if our current listeners have like-minded friends who are open to new sounds, do let them know of our existence! Simply point them to this website!

Added the Audiozue player to show the current album playing. Due to WordPress.com’s restrictions on usage of Javascript, there is no way we can show the artist and track title of the current song directly (if anybody knows a way, please do contact us!). Do take note! Clicking on the album art will lead you to the iTunes store (that’s where you can see the artist and track). If you do not want to have the stream disrupted (if you’re using iTunes to stream), or you loathe anything Apple-related, then clicking it is ill-advised.

We will not hesitate to put up our stream on a proper streaming host, even if it means having to pay for it out of our own pockets. To do that, however, we will need a larger listener base to justify the decision. A streaming host will mean that we will be able to broadcast the stream at higher quality, as well as being able to have more listeners on the stream at the same time.

We are also thinking of setting up a show showcasing music done by upcoming/starting local bands, perhaps a 1-hour or 2-hour show that will play twice a week. Timeslots can be decided later on, its still in the pipelines as Mika has her exams this coming week, and I’m currently trying to finish up whatever I can as mine’s in May. Local bands who are interested in this idea, do email us!

Those wondering what Mika has been doing, she has been doing mostly behind-the-scenes work for Radio Eclectica. Oh and lotsa mugging.

That’s it for now!

Check them out

I started a blog, which nobody read
When I went to work I blogged there instead
I started a blog, which nobody viewed
It might be in cache, the topics include:

George Bush is an evil moron
What’s the story with revolving doors?
I’m in love with a girl who doesn’t know I exist
Nobody hates preppies anymore
