12:05 a.m.: Radio Stew: Wolf Eyes Performances and recordings from From WIkipedia: "Wolf Eyes began as a solo project of former Nautical Almanac member Nate Young, with Aaron Dilloway joining in 1998, and John Olson in 2000.[1] The group has released over 100 recordings in their relatively short lifespan. Official releases have appeared on labels such as Bulb Records, Troubleman Unlimited, Fusetron, and Sub Pop as well as on Olson's American Tapes label, Dilloway's Hanson Records, Mike Connelly's Gods of Tundra label and Nate Young's AA Records. Connelly (also of Hair Police) replaced Dilloway in early 2005, due to the latter's departure for Nepal to make arrangements for his marriage. Dilloway is no longer an active member of the group but he did some production work on their 2006 Sub Pop album Human Animal and has performed with them on at least two occasions (Empty Bottle Chicago, IL 2/25/2006 and No Fun Fest Brooklyn, NY 3/18/2006). John Olson also performs in Dead Machines with his wife Tovah Olson. Nate Young performs solo as Hatred and with Steve Kenney and Alivia Zivich in the visual music group Demons. It was announced in February 2013 that Mike Connelly has left the group to concentrate on his solo work and Hair Police. He is replaced in the line up by another Michigan musician Jim Baljo. Wolf Eyes' first two major tours were with Sonic Youth and Andrew W.K. They have also collaborated with Anthony Braxton."
