Woolstock was great. Loads of great bands, well worth getting to.
Long time no update. Whats been going on ? Well nothing out of the ordinary. The show has been broadcast as usual every two weeks and the archives and setlists have been appearing in the shows section.
Woolstock is coming up soon, I'll hopefully try to take my camera along to that as well. I'll pop the results up here when I sort them out.
In the mean time, keep tuning into the show.

What are you waiting for ? go to the shows section and have a listen!
Has it really been this long since I updated this site ? wow.
Lots has happened in the last few months. Stef has left the show, we've had zillions of guests, and we're just recovering from yet another fabulous Infest. There's new flyers appearing around and about, and I'm going to revamp this website if it's the last thing I do.
The Yahoo group has been retired, as it never got updated anyway, but the livejournal community (link at the top of the page) has all the up to date info you'll need.
I promise to get this place updated regularly soon
Again, it's been a while since I updated things here, so whats new this time ?
Well, as usuall the last few shows have been uploaded. The show aired on November 24th includes an interview with KMFDM recorded when then recently played Bradford Rio's.
All the usual tunes and chat can be found in there as well.
The shows can be found in the usual place.
Appologies for the lack of updates to this site, but things are updated now. August and Septembers shows are online now in the shows section, and they include interviews we recorded at infest along with the usual tunes and ramblings.
Both of Julys shows are now online. You can find them in the shows section.
We changed our format slightly for the July 7th show, allowing Jamie from E.S.A. to play a selection of electronic noise acts, well worth checking out.
Both of Junes shows are now online. You can find them in the shows section.
The last two shows are now online. You can find them in the shows section.
The show from april 18th is now online.
Our next show will air tomorrow, and should be online soon after.
While there may have been a lack of updates on this front page, the show has been going great since January. We're fitting into our fortnightly slow nicely and finding it gives us a chance to play all kinds of stuff. If you're interested you can find the show archives for February, March, and April's shows are available online in the shows section.
Since January our show has changed to a one hour fortnightly show. We are still in the same timeslot.(11pm till midnight on a Thursday).
In other news, the website has been updated. Decembers show and the first show from January are both online. They're available as always in the shows section.
October and Novembers shows are now online. Novembers show is a real treat with interviews with Tom Shear and Skinflick, and two, yes two guests! DJ Gill from the Wendyhouse Mutate room comes and chooses a few tracks, and Keef Baker turns up to play us a live-ish set
Not only do we have a Yahoo group but for all you bloggers out there we now have a LiveJournal community. This community will give similar information to the group and will remind you when the next show is coming up.
Both of Septembers shows are now online, and can be found in the shows section. The second of the two shows includes a thirty minute set from ESA who recently supported Scrap.edx in manchester, and an interview with suicide commando from this years infest.
Augusts show was an interesting mix of the usual music and info, with a few more mistakes and technical gaffs than usual as I didn't have Stefs help with the technology side of things.
They can both be found in the shows section.
Last night I (nige) finally
managed to do the guest slot at blacksheep.
I've been promising to do this for ages and I finally managed to sort myself out
enough to arrange this. I tried to play a mixture of new/old goth/electronic, with
stuff people know and love, along with a couple of slightly less familiar tracks (1 hour
just didn't seem like long enough).
Many thanks for Paul for this opportunity and for putting up with my disorganisation.
Junes show is now online in the shows section.
The next show will be aired on Thursday 13th May. To have this reminder emailed to you simply subscribe to the darkassimilation yahoo group here.
Appologies again for the lack of updates to this site. Things have been quite busy for Stef and myself.

The show archive is now slightly higher quality (still darn low tho) so it should be a bit nicer to listen to. enjoy.

This was my first attempt at club djing and it all went very groovey and bouncey. I dind't dj the usual stuff i play on the show, but a more broader 80's infuenced set.
I'll try to keep info posted here on mine and stefs antics in the future.
Due to a mixup at bcb we're not scheduled to be broadcast tonight. Instead the show will go out next week (thursday 20th feb @ 10pm).

A show archive and playlist should be available online shortly after the show is aired. As always, feel free to drop us feedback in the chat area.
Januarys show was aired okay, and due to some scheduling mishap at bcb our december show was aired directly after it. It sounded really good to hear this kind of music on the radio for 2 hours.
Finally, Decembers and Januarys shows are online, sorry for the delay.
We've got some exciting stuff going into february's show so definately tune in for that one.
As always, drop us some feedback on our chat page.
I've discovered that the 'bat country' show on kdvs ( it's on our links page ) has moved from monday to wednesday. I've updated the comment on the link page so it's accurate again.
Sorry for the lack of updates again, with christmas + new year + cold/flu the site has not been given the attention it deserves.
Well, we're still here and still going. Our next show should be on Thursday 16th January. The previous show's archive is still on it's way, and i'll post here when it's done.
Until then, keep tuning in, and post messages, etc. to the chat section of the site to tell us what you want to hear.
The latest show was aired on last thursday and both me and stef think it was one of our best yet. we had DJFreon (freon promotions) in talking about her djing and the gig's shes got lined up for next year.
The show archive might be a little late this time as i'm recovering from a bit of a cold. I'll try to get it online soon.
Firstly, appologies for being so quiet for a while, myself and stef have just been exceptionally rubbish and getting things done. We could quote all kinds of technical problems, we could even tell you our dog ate our homework, but you wouldn't beleive us, so we're just going to let your imagination run wild. The bottom line is that we just haven't got much done in the last few weeks. I know you're all fluffy smiley people out there and will forgive us, so stay tuned in, we're not going anywhere :).
The more watchfull of you will notice we didn't air a show last month. Well, thats life i guess, things happened and we didn't get it done. BCB kindly aired a re-run and we have made sure a shiney fresh show is going to happen this month.
The next show will be aired on thursday 21st November and a playlist and archive will be online here within a couple of days.
Many thanks to d.j. freon for posting some requests. We didn't manage to squeeze these into this thursdays show, but some of them will be getting played as soon as we can manage it.
See you all around.
The third show was aired at 10pm. We didn't appear on the bcb scedule page though. i guess i'll have to hassle the guys who do the web site a bit more :)
I've been told that 10pm should be our regular slot. So tune it at that time in four weeks if you're interested.
It's online now and available for download. The first show archive has been removed now because of disk space issues. It might return as i've found some disk space on ntl, i'll see what i can sort out.
Our third show should be aired today. I think our timeslot is either 10-11pm or 11-12pm, but no one has really told us. The bcb schedule page isn't giving away any clues either. oh well.
I'll try to get the track listing and the show archive up in the next couple of days, thanks for being patient with us
The second show got aired okay. The playlist and archive will are available now in the shows section.
Thanks to an issue that only appeared to effect NTLWorld users, this website was allmost unaccessible for the last 3 days. Anyone who knows me knows exactly how much i like NTL, and how much hassle i get from them.
We have the date for the second show confirmed, check the schedule section.Also the messageboard is now working. drop us some comments.
