When British vocalist John Lawton finished his 1969 tour tour of Germany with Stonewall, he decided to say there. The following year, together with German musicians Peter Hesslein, Dieter Horns, Peter Hecht and Joachim Reitenbach, he formed the band Asterix which, after one album, changed its name to Lucifer's Friend.

The first, self-titled album was released in 1970. Four more albums followed, each one with a different musical style, before John Lawton left after the 1976 release of Mind Exploding to join Uriah Heep.

However, he was back for the 1981 recording of Mean Machine. In the meantime, the band had made two albums with fomer Colosseum II vocalist Mike Starrs.

To understand the somewhat confusing history of this band, and its ever-changing styles of music, listen in to Lucifer's Friend - In Focus with Dave Hewitt, this Saturday at 8pm on Phoenix Radio.

Once again, Saturday evening is when Phoenix Radio turns to its dark side. DJ Cruel Britannia presents Fadeout - an hour of the best in goth, darkwave, industrial and alternative. It's a good introduction for those listeners just getting to grips with the genre and an unashamed wallow in favourite tracks for the more dedicated.

So pull on your leather and join Cruel Britannia on Fadeout every Saturday at 7pm, as usual on Phoenix Radio.

Paul Baker will foray into the world of Prog Rock on Sunday. As usual on Soundscapes, Paul will review the latest releases, talk about and to the major artists in the genre, and perhaps even get out one of his infamous 'long tracks'.

To find out what's happening on the Prog scene, be sure to tune in to Phoenix Radio from 3pm every Sunday for Soundscapes with Paul Baker.

Wednesday night favourite Ian has a wide range of musical tastes. From post-rock to post-metal, post-punk to post-hardcore. That's why he hosts (POST) - a weekly look at everything that no-one else plays.

So whether you like Cult of Luna, Isis, Pelican, Mono, Sigur Ros, This Will Destroy You, Porcupine Tree or a host of other 'cult' bands, listen in to Ian's favourites on (POST), this and every Wednesday at 7pm on your favourite station - Phoenix Radio.
