    • Lately I've been spending less time on streaming services like Spotify and more time on Mixcloud, as I keep unearthing some killer shows and DJ mixes there. Wanted to see what your faves are. I'll start out by posting the link to Radio Mutation there (formerly connected to this site as GaragePunk Pirate Radio, est. in 2005):

      https://www.mixcloud.com/radiomutation/

      Lots of other great shows there, though. Post some links!

    • Halloween is here again! Check out the new Big Enchilada Spooktacular 

       

      Featuring music from The Monsters, The Cave Men, The Black Lips, Andre Williams, Demented Are Go, Meet Your Death and more.

    • Howdy friends and neighbors. I just posted my first hillbilly episode of The Big Enchilada in the last six months.

      It's called "Honky Tonk Hellfire" and it features songs by June Carter, Dave Dudley, Eddie Noack, Jim Kweskin & Geoff Muldaur, Billy Childish,  Rev. Billy C. Wirtz and more. There's wild country music, old and new; songs of joy and songs of shame; songs touched by the Lord and songs scorched by the Devil's hellfire.

      You can find this and lots of other dandy podcasts at Radio Mutation.

    • Check out this recent episode of Revolution Rock where I played only vinyl records.  There was music from Mark Sultan, Beach Boys, Gang Of Four, Joy Division, Ty Segall, Iggy & The Stooges and more.  Also, check out my blog post for an exclusive live video from Danny Kroha (of The Gories) playing some acoustic folk/blues songs.

      All Vinyl Episode, Danny Kroha & Show # 625
      On this week’s episode of Revolution Rock we played music from vinyl records only. The show got off to a rocky start, but it featured a selection of current, obscure music and some of our favourite records. The playlist was selected spontaneously and on the fly. You can view the playlist and download the episode in the link below the playlist in this post.

      Additionally, we featured a selection from Danny Kroha’s 2015 release Angels Watching Over Me. Released on Third Man Records, this album is Kroha’s take on the traditional folk, blues and gospel genres. Danny Kroha is a founding member of the Detroit garage trio The Gories and has played in numerous garage oriented rock bands such as The Demolition Doll Rods, The Readies and others. He also currently plays in a garage band called Danny & The Darleans. Danny stopped by CJAM FM’s studios at the end of August and performed three songs for a new video/audio series that I have started that we’re calling CJAM Sessions. You can view his performance in this video below.

    • Radio What Wave Playlist October 20/2016

      1. Lee Harvey Osmond....Shake The Hand....from their most recent CD, Beautiful Scars on the Latent Recordings label. Caught the band last friday night at the Aeolian Hall and it was a superb perfomance; 49 tons (reference to the third song of the evening)of energy, excellent sound, fantastic playing and loads of interplay with the crowd!! One of the best shows we've witnessed in 2016! And it was fresh off a double sold out show in Nashville the previous night, so the band was on! Hamilton Ontario should be proud!!

      2. 24th Street Wailers....Aim To Please....from their Wicked CD from 2014 and they are playing a Legion in Chatham Ontario tonight!

      3. Chuck Berry....Back In The USA....from The Great 28 double LP on Chess Records and recorded back in 1959. Happy 90th birthday to Chuck Berry. And on a related but much sadder note, we say goodbye to Phil Chess, one half of the Chess Brothers, the founders of Chuck's early label, Chess Records. One of the most influential record labels ever, and at one point, home to Muddy Waters, Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Etta James, Willie Dixon, Little Walter and so many more talented artists!

      4. Flat Duo Jets....TV Mama....from the 1991 CD Go Go Harlem Baby. One half of the Flat Duo Jets is Dexter Romweber who just released another LP on Bloodshot Records.

      5. Bloodshot Bill....The Wobble...from his latest LP, Guitar Boy on Norton Records.

      6. Strange Things....Higher Anxiety....from a brand new 7" on La Ti Da Records and from Vancouver.

      7. Long Day Journey....The Balloon Ride....from their about to be released CD, Grows Their Own and from Hamilton Ontario.

      8. The Stents..... Sorry, I'm Not Sorry....from their brand new Invisible Sounds releaseon KOTJ Records. From Philidelphia and they've released a couple of 7" records on Hidden Volume Records that we've played here on Radio WW.

      9. The Wave....Walk....from a download and from Kapuskasing Ontario. The son of former Londoner Brodie Lodge is in this band.

      10. Patsy's Rats.....Rock'n'Roll Friend....another brand new 7" on La Ti Da Records and this combo is from Portland. Howie Gelb's daughter is doing the vocals on this one!

      11. The Flintettes.....Same Faces....yet another brand new 7" on La Ti Da Records and this combo is from Vancouver and features a Tranzmitor in the band.

      12. Coaching For Sara.....Little Lady....from their recent debut CD and from London Ontario. They are playing sunday afternoon at the Eastside as an acoustic trio. They're actively looking for a replacement bass player, so if you know anyone....

      13. Bath Salts....Cool Like The Music....from their brand new Mardi Gras CD and from London Ontario.

      14. The Standells...Sometimes Good Guys Don't Wear White....from the Rhino Best Of LP that came out in the early 90's. This is the start of our set playing covers that The Boy From Nowhere do live. The Boy are playing saturday night at Fitzrays in downtown London Ontario.

      15. The Real Kids....All Kindsa Girls....from their first LP from 1977. Boston's finest purveyors of power pop!

      16. Flamin' Groovies....Teenage Head....from the LP of the same name from 1971.

      17. The Dictators....Minnesota Strip....from the Bloodbrothers LP from 1978. Coincidentally, before they became Boy From Nowhere in 1984, they went under the name Bloodbrothers for 2 gigs with Al Cole doing the vocals and tight stripped trousers thing. You may remember Al for his Young Fast and Scientific radio show on CHRW that ran around 1979 for a couple of years.

      18. UIC....Heartache....from the just released Wiseman Sessions LP on Hell Yeah Records. Grab a copy of this one locally at Speed City and Grooves or mailorder direct from Hell Yeah Records. Nothing could be finer....

      19. The Bell Rays.....Changing Colours....from the Let It Blast LP from 1998. Rock'n'soul from the west coast.

      20. The Hook Up....I Like The Cruel Sounds Of Love....from their soon to be released Cruel Sounds CD (or will it be vinyl??)

      21. The Charms....So Romantic...from the Strange Magic CD from 2006 on Wicked Cool Records. And there's a Romantic or 2 doing back up vocals on this one! As in The Romantics from Detroit!

      22. Andy Kim.....Rainbow Ride....from a Greatest Hits LP and from 1968. One of the first K-Tel Records I bought (or got for a birthday or something) had this tune on it.

      23. Market East....Orange and Me....from yet another brand new 7" on La Ti Da Records and this combo is from the east coast....Philly/Brooklyn. Listening to this one, and it sure sounds like some long lost power pop tune from the late 60's!!!Such fine vocal harmonies and that little bit of soul influence gets me every time!!

      24. Lemon Pipers....Green Tambourine....from a Greatest Hits CD and from 1968.

      Huge Thanx for all the phone calls (there was one Really nice one, but the caller doesn't want me to reveal who it is for some odd reason....made my day!!), emails, facebook messages and Heys!!! We really appreciate all the great feedback!
      And congrats to Jerry Vickers, the winner of the London Record Show tickets, which by the way is Sunday October 30th at Centennial Hall and runs from 11 to 5. I'll have a table with tons of stuff you want/need....
      Next week, it's all London Ontario vinyl as we work towards the record show....any London Ontario vinyl requests, get them in now!

Big Thanx to all involved in making this happen....Adam the sound engineer, Ando for allowing it and assisting with some kinks, CHRW Manager Tim Glasgow for assisting with some last minute kinks and of course Frank Ridsdale for taking the time to come into the studio and play some amazing tunes over the airwaves!!

The art display that opened in Hamilton at Hammer City Records the next day featuring the artwork of Lyndon Andrews (who did most of the early Uranus and Demics posters) and many of the bands that Frank has been involved with in his 40 year musical career!

      Big Thanx to Frank Ridsdale for coming onair live and thanx to all our listeners and all those crazies that email, facebook message and say HEY on the street and at shows!! It's all for fun and this was a really fun show with Frank....did you know Frank's band, The Sci-Phonics played in our basement about 30 years ago? The show was a blast for all attended as Rena was teaching ESL to adults back then, and some of them even came for the party! Did you know that Uranus was the fave band of the bikers from this area of Ontario? And they'd regularly attend shows and even invite the band to play at their gatherings! And that Uranus was the first rock'n'roll band to play at the Blue Boot and opened the doors for the punk/new wave combos to finally have a regular place to play!

      8. Flamin' Groovies....There's A Place...from their 1978 LP Now. The Groovies were one of the few combos on a major label hyping the 60's Brit invasion sounds in the mid 70's and lucky for us (or maybe just me?), they're back together still pumping out the sounds!

Vocalist Steve Marriott (you all remember him from The Small Faces, one of the greatest combos to come out of the UK in the mid 60's!) insisted on having some female back up singers on this one, and they really added to the sound!

We've had these guys as guests on Radio WW a few years back, and hope to get them back to London again for a show sometime soon. You'll be hearing lots more from this release!

      3. The Hookup...Go And Hide....brand new recordings from Saskatoon's The Hook Up and slated for their next release Cruel Sounds. We had this combo on a live to air here at Radio WW several years back and that recording actually came out as a cassette not long after.

Opening up was a band we weren't familiar with, but were told they came from the UK....Anti Nowhere League. These guys were fucking amazing, playing straight 77 punk at a time it was no longer considered cool! Hate filled testosterone fueled lyrics with buzzsaw guitars and dressed in the finest bondage and leather gear available! Fucking blew my socks off they were so much fun!!! Kinda took the edge off the UK Subs appearance later on in the show.

      9. 905s...Running Full Speed....from a 2013 recording just for Radio WW. Around this time I yammered about how much I dig the 905s, so here's another ramble on....First heard Andy Butler (prior to naming the band 905s) back in the myspace days, doing this amazing powerpop ode to Teenage Head called Hamilton Head! Blew my mind at the time and couldn't get this one out of my noggin'. Got in touch w/Andy and we've been pals since. Invited the band to play what was billed as the Betty Page Birthday Bash almost 10 years ago and they wowed all in attendance! Guitar driven powerpop and rock'n'roll and actually coming out of Canada! Invited them back for another couple of key shows, that being A Nite Of Teenage Rock'n'Roll with Johnny Terrien and the Bad Lieutenants and again, they along with JT tore the house down! And when we were arranging Paul Collins Beat's firs appearance in London, who should get the nod as one of the opening bands but the 905s where they fit right in. Paul Collins raved about the band and coming from him, that means a lot!! So we've got The 905s returning to London this saturday night at Call The Office, opening up for Johnny Terrien and the Bad Lieutenants...not to be missed!!!

      10. 905s....Weekend Comes...from the 2009 CD Break Out!

      14. Castor Troys.... Broken Black Heart...from their recent Come Hell Or High Water CD and they will also be appearing saturday night with JT and the Bad Lieutenants and the 905s.

      15. UIC....Anything At All....from the soon to be released Wiseman Sessions LP.

      16. UIC....Lite It And Fly....as above.

      12. Popular Mechanix....Ice Box City....demo from around 1980 from this Winnipeg trio all about living/surviving in Winnipeg. They released 2 LP's and even came through London and played a weekend at the Cedar Lounge, sounding more mod than the powerpop of their records.

      13. Los Chicos Problema....Le Plan...from their CD Estremecete y Rueda! from a year or so ago. A 2 piece combo from Mexico.

      14. Shanker and Romps....Gonna Ride My Bike...from their Pancakin' CD from 2007 and from Ottawa. We had S&R playing one of our Battle Of The 2 Piece Bands several years back, and they were a TON of fun live!

      15. Satan's Cheerleaders....Tribute To Elvis....from a 7" and also on their Infinity CD on SFTRI. West coast combo who released several singles and later a couple of CD's and this is the start of our tribute to Elvis set, as Elvis passed away 39 years ago this week.

      16. Gun Club....For The Love Of Ivy....from the Fire Of Love LP from 1982. Bought this right when it came out due to a really good write up in NYRocker magazine/newspaper. There were comparisions to The Cramps and that's all it took to get me to grab this one when it showed up locally at Records on Wheels! And repeated listens over the years haven't diminished its pleasure to my brain!! Played this particular track for the line "all dressed up like an Elvis from hell' which gets repeated several times. Many of us were guilty of that look back in the early 80's! 1984 saw The Gun Club play Mingles here in London, with Kid Congo on guitar and Patricia Bag on the bass if memory serves me correctly.

      17. Supreme Bagg Team....Crankin' For Elvis...from Mr Garager's Neighbourhood, an Lp we put out with OG Records back in 1989. ELVIS, that's the way to spell success!!! Guitarist Dave is now in the re-formed UIC whom many of you are going to see next month in Toronto.

      18. Jane Doe....There's A Guy Works Down The Chip Shop Swears He's Elvis....local release from 1988 and featured several local artists from such combos as The Zellots, Ukase, 63 Monroe and even Juno Award winner Dan Brodbeck was involved!

      19. Elvis Presley.....Mystery Train....from the Complete Sun Sessions double LP and this song is from 1955. It still sounds so good after over 60 years!

      20. Newport Electric....One Of A Million....from the So It Goes CD from last year. Guitarist/vocalist John challenged me to post an LP cover of an LP that I thought was great on facebook....and I posted a pic of....

      21. The Monks....Monk Time....from the Black Monk Time LP from 1966 on Polydor Records out of Germany.

      22. The Monks....Oh How To Do.Now... as above.

      23. The Monks....I Hate You... as above.

      24. Hiroshima Hearts....Fool Me Twice....from their brand new Bone Music CD and from London. You probably heard them play live to air on Radio WW a year or so ago, if not, caught them live around London as they seem to be getting some well deserved high profile opening slots.

      25. Gun Club...Sex Beat....from Fire Of Love as above, and we had to fade this out as we ran out of time....

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

    • iF WE HAVE'NT SPOKEN ABOUT THIS (AND IF WE'RE STILL SPEAKING....), I can't recommend Giuda (Pron . "zhoo - da".), from Italy , enough.  They have three albums , each one betraying an obsession for early 70's Glam masterpieces (Some of their songs sound like well known Glam Rock songs , at times.). It's aggressive and beat - heavy in the Slade, Sweet , Gary Glitter , and even Mud , traditions , but it makes sense , musically , in this day and age. THEY'VE HONED THEIR THING OVER THE LAST FEW YEARS  , AND ARE NOW A highly professional and powerful , machine , with a rousing live show.
