    • Radio What Wave Playlist May 5/2017   Teenage Rampage On A Senior’s Discount….7” Of Pleasure

       

      Started the show with a visit from Miesha and The Spanks (Miesha and Shawn) who were in town to play at Call The Office on the evening of this show. All the way from Calgary to play in our little town!!

      From there, it was a TON of 7” singles that I really dig! Loads of rare stuff and some of my faves.

       

      1. Miesha and The Spanks…..Stranger….from their brand new self released 7”
      2. Miesha and The Spanks….Motorin’….the flip of the above 7”.
      3. Miesha and The Spanks….Leather Jacket….from the Gods Of Love LP on Transistor 66 Records from a few years back. Around this time we finished with a quick interview of Miesha and Shawn and they are playing tonight at Call The Office.
      4. Sacred Miracle Cave….Summertime….from a 7” on SFTRI from 1989 and a collaboration of sorts as some of the members of Clawhammer are involved in this project.
      5. The Cramps….Drug Train….from 1980 release on Illegal Records
      6. Tex Rubinowitz….Hot Rod Man….from a 1979 7” on Ripsaw Records. Lux Interior once said of Tex, that he gets down so far, there’s nothing but a hiccup between the floor and Tex, to paraphrase.
      7. Martha Hull…Feelin’ Right Tonight….another Ripsaw 7”, this from 1981. Martha was at one time lead vocals for DC’s Slickee Boys.  Martha really lets loose on this one, but you already knew that.
      8. The Customs….Bring My Cadillac Back… On Shake Records out of Cincinnati from around 1980. Features Peter Greenberg on the killer guitar, presently in Barrence Whitfield and the Savages.
      9. Cherry Vanilla….The Punk….1977 release on RCA Records and at one time was on the jukebox at the Cedar Lounge here in London.
      10. Immaculate Hearts…..Sugar Pussy….from a 1990 release on SFTRI and features Freddy Pompeii on lead vocals. Freddy is in hospital in Philly and needs our love and support!
      11. Sydicate Of Sound….Hey Little Girl….from 1966 and on the Bell label. Freddy was in a late version of this combo.
      12. The Yardbirds….Stroll On…from the Blow Up 7” soundtrack for the movie.  Locally the Boy From Nowhere cover this one.
      13. The Nerves….Hanging On The Telephone….from their self released EP from 1976. Blondie later covered this one and had a bit of a hit with it.
      14. Flamin’ Groovies….Shake Some Action….from a 7” on the Line Records label from Germany. Way different than the album version.
      15. Barracudas…..1965 Again…from a 1980 7” on Zonophone Records. Features X Ottawa Jeremy Gluck on lead vocals.
      16. Taxi Boys….I Can’t Kick…from a 7” EP on the Star Rhythm label. This is actually the Real Kids under a different name for some odd reason.
      17. The Dawgs…Shot Of Your Love…..from a 1979 7” on Greenline Records and out of the Boston area.
      18. The Blasters…..American Music…from a 1982 7” on FBEAT Records.
      19. The Fleshtones….The World Has Changed….from a 1981 7” on IRS Records. The Fleshtones celebrate their 40th anniversary of a band this year!!! One of my all time fave live combos, still doing it 40 years on!!!
      20. The Last….She Don’t Know Why….from a 1978 7” on Bomp Records.
      21. Miracle Workers…..Hung Up….from the Moxie EP from 1984.
      22. The Ruts….Babylon’s Burning….from a 1979 7” on Virgin Records.
      23. The Rezillos….I Wanna Be Your Man….from a 1977 7” on Sensible Records. Every Rezillos single I have, has way different versions of the songs as on the longplayer. Just love the bass playing on this one, so powerful!
      24. The Buzzcocks….Boredom….from the Spiral Scratch EP from 1977. This has vocals by Howard Devoto who left the band to form Magazine.
      25. The Crimson Shadows….You Can’t Come Down….from a 1985 7” on Sunlight Records and from Sweden.
      26. Misanthropes….Why Do You Treat Me So Bad….from a late 80’s 7” on Get Hip Records.
      27. The Cynics….Painted My Heart….from a 1985 7” on Dionysus Records. This is the only Cynics record without longtime vocalist Micheal Kastelic.
      28. The Cunts….. Date With Disaster….from a 1982 7” on Disturbing Records and from Chicago.

       

       

      Ran outta time, certainly not records as we had planned to play many more. We’ll play a few more on next week’s show and we have Shane from Coaching For Sarah as a visitor next week.

       

      Big thanx to Ando for letting me play with the content rules for one week only, Huge Thanx to Miesha and the Spanks for taking the time to come on air live and yammer about their show tonight at Call The Office. And thanx for all the emails, facebook messages, phone calls and Heys!!! That’s what makes it all worthwhile!

    • April 29, 2017 9:43 AM CDT
    • Radio What Wave Playlist April 28/2016….Steven R. Stunning as Special Guest

       

      First show in a coupla weeks, we had a special guest in Mr Steven R. Stunning, frontman, CEO of longlasting local combo 63 Monroe, a band that has helped put London Ontario on the map. Shoulda looked at my notes as there were a coupla questions on the agenda that got missed, but we went in way different directions than originally planned. Free form radio in the modern age only happens on college airwaves….and we had a TON of fun!

       

      1. The New Christs….Born Out Of Time….played the Sonics Records 7” French press of this one and challenged the Boy From Nowhere to cover this one!! Had to get some anger out of my system due to some shit that happened today and no better way than this and the next blast o’sonic splash and free form vocalization courtesy the Boy Wonder Rob Younger. Grrrr!
      2. The New Christs….No Next Time….flip of the above and the dueling guitars on this one always slay me…..so nice!
      3. Downbeat 5….Kicked Around….from their debut CD dating around 2003 and on SFTRI. Singer Jen Rassler just lets loose and the anger leaves my system….whew!! Guitar crunch courtesy of DMZ vet JJ Rassler…maybe you remember him from the Queers. And he was probably a Lyre at one time or another as well. But I feel much better now.
      4. The Hippies….Nuclear Disaster….from their only 7”, early 80’s and from London Ontario. This one went out to musicologist Jesse Locke who is looking for this record. And 2 of these guys are in The Boy From Nowhere…..who happen to be playing tonight at the SOHO here in London Ontario.
      5. The Hippies….Can Teens….from the cassette, Slippery’s Club Hits, that came with What Wave 24 and also goes out to Jesse, as he hadn’t heard this one yet.
      6. 63 Monroe….At The Boot….from the same cassette as above and recorded in 1980 at the Cedar Lounge here in town and the intro to Mr Steven R. Stunning who got caught in the Tim’s lineup due to exam week happening here on campus.
      7. 63 Monroe….You Can’t See It….from the brand new Jeff LP. For late drummer Jeff Depew who did his last ever drumming on this recording.
      8. 63 Monroe….Oh No You Again…. As above. Steven informed me this is a Rolling Stones song. And he did all the proper paperwork for this release.
      9. 63 Monroe….Luxury….as above. And this is where Steven found out that the track order is incorrect on the LP sleeve.
      10. 63 Monroe….TV Is Brain Damage…. As above.
      11. 63 Monroe….Tickle Whisper Kiss…. As above.
      12. 63 Monroe….Hijack Victim….from a live recording 11/26/2016 at the Dawghouse here in London. Recording by longtime CHRW host John Gardi, The NiteBat.
      13. 63 Monroe….Battle Of New Orleans…. As above and this went out to local scribe Robert Pegg.
      14. 63 Monroe….Weekend Punx…. As above.
      15. 63 Monroe….Waiting…..from a live recording from Easter 1980 at the Cedar Lounge. I taped this one from the radio back in 1980 and it may have been recorded by Grammy winner and former CHRW host Peter Moore. He was known as Simon Less during his stint here many years ago.
      16. 63 Monroe….Johnny B Goode…. As above.
      17. 63 Monroe…..Road Runner…. As above
      18. 63 Monroe….Bad Boy…. As above.
      19. NFG….. After….. from a recording supplied by Robert Gliddon, bass player for NFG, the pre-cursor to 63 Monroe. Probably from 1979.
      20. NFG….House Of The Rising Sun…. as above.
      21. NFG….Give ‘Em Up… as above.
      22. 63 Monroe……Punk Rock Goalie….from the recent Jeff LP
      23. 63 Monroe…..Horizontal Hold….from the Hijack Victim LP on Rave Records out of Italy.

       

      Big Thanx to Steven R. Stunning for taking the time to join us and answer a load of stupid questions, live on air. It was a blast, and judging by the feedback I’ve received so far, people had fun listening to us old farts yammer about things long gone!

       

      Thanx for all the crazy phone calls, emails, facebook messages and texts!!

    • I FOUND ALVIN STARDUST'S FIRST UK ALBUM , RECENTLY. I've always liked what little I'd heard , but , apart from a couple of singles , I've never seen anything turn up. In fact , I already found a Shane Fenton (Stardust's previous hit venture in the 60's , where he assumed the identity of his band's previous frontman , who had died suddenly . ) CD comp, years earlier.  The Stardust LP is surprisingly good , at times ,           T Rex/Slade good. His vocal style owes a lot to Gene Vincent and Vince Taylor.    In fact , so did his stage personna.  So , if you like the Chinnichap/Mike Leander sound , and are at all intrigued by Glam's more than casual flirtations with Rockabilly , seek him out.
