An Important Announcement

Dear Listeners,

So, in case it hasn't been obvious, I've been a little busy lately. "With what?" you ask... well, for the past 3.5 years I've been attending a community college part-time, and this past spring I finally took the plunge an applied to some all-out universities. I got into a few, chose one, and now I'm getting ready to change my whole life. Unfortunately, part of that change is moving too a place way out of commuting distance, which means I will no longer be able to host Subculture Shock.

Before you panic, don't worry! This show existed before me and it will exist after as long as someone steps up to take over, hence this message. If you have a love for Goth/Industrial music, so much that you'll let it eat several hours of your week, and enough enthusiasm to be on-air gabbing about it, send me an email at subcultureshockATgmailDOTcom. Tell me your name, why you wanna host SubShock, and send me a sample playlist - 20 or so of your favorite tracks. I'll chat with those who send me messages, and then we'll try getting some folks on the air. For those of you who've been listening for that long, you'll know that when Chris Knight left, I actually took over with another awesome co-host, so team-ups are definitely possible!

Furthermore, understand that I'll be setting up a podcast as soon as I'm settled in Williamsburg. It won't be Subculture Shock, because that's WNRN's baby. But I will make sure to keep you posted.

Thank you all for an amazing six (almost seven!) years. I've watched the listener base to this show grow, chatted with a bunch of you on the phone or online, and been exposed to so much music that I'm not quite sure how to fully express how fun this job has been. But know that there are a few things that almost made me decide to stay in Charlottesville, and this was one of them.

I'm here 'til August, but then I'll miss you folks!
Patrick Allen
Host, Subculture Shock, WNRN

Spring Podcasts!

Holy moly, have I been slack on these! However, the reasons why will be made clear soon enough. In the meantime, enjoy three months of podcasts! There are a couple missing due to technical difficulties, so sorry about that!

Attention Musicians: Musical Contributions Needed!

The Subculture Shock Fund Drive is coming up Sunday, March 27, giving you an excellent chance to promote your band(s).

For those who don't know, Subculture Shock is a weekly radio show occurring on WNRN, 91.9 (Charlottesville), 103.1 (Richmond), 101.1 (Staunton/Waynesboro) 95.1 (Harrisonburg), 89.9 (Lynchburg), 95.3 (Lexington), and 94.7 (Lovingston) every Sunday from 10pm to Midnight. You can also listen to it online anywhere at and download podcasts from,, and We attempt to showcase the best in new and classic Goth, Industrial, Darkwave, Death Rock, EBM, Synthpop, etc. This is a completely volunteer show; none of us are paid, we just do it because we love the music. However, it takes money to keep the show on the air, and we get it through these fund drives.

So, here's how we can help you while you help us. Donating some of your music to SubShock guarantees 1) We'll play it on the air and 2) Pledgers to the station will have a chance to receive your stuff as a premium for their pledge. Any information about your band you give us will be passed along to our pledgers.

And before we get into this, I'll let you know that SubShock is often one of the highest grossing "Specialty Shows" during a fund drive. It's quite normal for us to have numerous pledgers and raise an average of $1100, at the very least. Last Fund Drive we raised over $1400! If you donate something to us, chances are someone will get it.

There are two ways you can contribute to the fundraiser. You can choose to do one or both, as we'll take all you're willing to give.

The SubShock Compilation: Everyone who donates at least $10 to the station during the Subculture Shock Fund Drive gets a complimentary mix-cd containing tracks by the artists we play. This is a great opportunity for bands that don't have complete CDs but do have a track or two ready to still get their music into the hot little hands of a listener. This is also good for bands that want to have "collector's items" out there, as this Comp is often a breeding ground for rare mixes, previously unreleased tracks, covers, etc. We play a wide variety of music on SubShock, and are very nondiscriminatory if your act falls anywhere near the boundaries of Goth/Industrial/etc. We'll also try to include a card with every CD containing each band's contact information. We can’t promise your track will end up on the compilation due to space and funds, but we’ll still try to play it on air if we can.

Premiums: Another way you can be a huge help is by donating some merchandise that can be given as Premiums for larger pledges (The lowest dollar amount someone must give for a premium is $25 for a student, and prices will vary depending on what merch is given to us). This can be anything from CDs to T-Shirts, whatever and however many you deem appropriate. Once again, by donating anything you're guaranteeing we're going to pimp the hell out of your band.

The fund drive is Sunday, March 27, so we're asking that all tracks for the SubShock Comp be delivered by Wednesday, the 23rd at 5PM EST to give us a couple days to make the discs, and all merch be at the station by Saturday March 26th so we can have a pretty good tally of what we've got. If you have merch you want to give but cannot make the deadline, let us know and we'll work something out.

You can mail merchandise, CDs, etc. to the station directly at 2250 Old Ivy Road Suite 2, Charlottesville Virginia, 22903. Just address it to Patrick Allen, and/or Subculture Shock. Tracks for the SubShock Comp (along with any questions) can also be emailed to Try to make them as high-quality MP3s as you can send (192 kps at the LEAST).

Please feel free to pass this on to any acts/agents you think might be interested. The more response we get, the better.

Thank you for your time, and I hope to be hearing more of your band on Subculture Shock very soon.

Patrick's Picks for the Best Singles/Albums of 2010!

With the Best of 2010 show just around the corner, I figured I’d give you my favorite songs and albums of 2010. Please keep in mind that this is my personal list of favorites for the year, not the Listener’s Choice list that’s still open to your votes. I’m just putting this out here for your own personal enjoyment, hoping you might check out the artists listed here. And if they want to use this as bragging rights, then they are more than welcome to.

Lemme tell ya, whittling away almost 100 new singles (and that’s not counting artist repeats!) into a top 10 list was not easy, but here’s Patrick’s Picks for the top Subculture Shock Singles of 2010:

10. Oh So - Don't You Want to Know
9. Stromkern - Notes from a War
8. Hungry Lucy - Hill
7. Grinderman - Bellringer Blues
6. Covenant - Lightbringer
5. WeeP - Snow Scenery
4. The Qualia - Dark City Streets
3. Spiritual Front - Jesus Died in Las Vegas
2. Dyonisis - Arachne's Song
1. Autumn Cannibals - Chasing Orbits

Now, that’s just singles. But there were quite a few artists on the list who may not have blown my mind with a single song but instead managed to craft a record that didn’t leave my playlist for a long time. Therefore, I present to you Patrick’s Picks for the Best Gothic/Industrial Albums of 2010:

10. Christ Versus Warhol - Dissent
9. Veil Veil Vanish – Change in the Neon Light
8. Edge of Dawn - Anything That Gets You Through The Night
7. Hungry Lucy – Pulse of the Earth
6. Various Artists - Electronic Saviours
5. Ego Likeness - Breedless
4. Dyonisis - Intoxication
3. Autumn Cannibals - Solo
2. Grinderman - Grinderman 2
1. WeeP - Worn Thin

Let me again state that an incredible amount of amazing music was released this year, and crafting these lists was damned hard. Thank you to ALL the bands who submitted their incredible tunes to me, and here’s hoping that 2011 brings us even more incredible music.

Don’t agree with my choices? Place your vote here and listen this Sunday at 10pm Eastern for the Listener’s Choice Best of 2010 special!
