    • Radio What Wave Playlist September 28/2018. Cedar Lounge Special Part 1

       

      First part of a tribute to the Cedar Lounge, the first punk/new wave/whatever club here in London Ontario. Located at the north west corner of King and Talbot and now the home of the 3 giant concrete (ceramic or whatever) balls on the area surrounding the Budweiser Gardens. This show is comprised of the music of the bands that played there…

      1. The Demics….Heart Of The City…live recording from the Cedar from 1978 and a song that to me surmises the early punk scene here in London.  And one of the first songs I ever heard The Demics play live.
      2. The Demics….New York City….recorded live at the Cedar Lounge 10/18/1978. From the cassette compilation Domestic Animals put out by Peter Moore and Gerry Collins. These guys put out this cassette without asking the band’s permission, and many were not aware they were on a cassette until they heard their songs right here on CHRW. Peter was a DJ here on CHRW and went under the name Simon Less. He’s gone on to way grander things….like winning a Grammy Award a year or so ago for his work on the Bob Dylan re-issues!! And he’s mastered literally tons of recordings since his days recording live bands in London.
      3. The Demics….Oh Well…. As above and often followed NYC during live performances by The Demics.
      4. The Regulators…Vicious….live recording from the Cedar from 1979. NYC was written about singer/guitarist and his fixation on Lou Reed and NYC….or so says the rumour.
      5. The Regulators…..What Goes On…..live recording from the Polish Hall on Ann St 11/2/1979. This was a venue that was host to several punk/new wave bashes in the early years. NFG also played on this show, the infamous last show of their guitarist Larry Gifford and possibly Simon Lewis. More on this at a future date.
      6. Regulators…..What’s In The City….as above and this song was on their only record, a 7” on Ready Records.
      7. The Scenics….Waiting For My Man….from their How Does It Feel To Be Loved CD and is a live recording from the Cabana Room in Toronto 8/20/1980. This art trio played London and St Thomas many times along with The Demics and would trade Toronto gigs with The Demics. A few years after the Cedar years, guitarist/vocalist Andy had a record store at the south east corner of Queen and Clarence….think it’s a parking lot now.
      8. The Scenics….Oh Boy…..from the In The Summer CD and the first studio recording for this edition of Radio WW.
      9. Uranus….You’re So Square…..from a live recording in Toronto from 5/1980. Uranus were the first of the non-bluegrass bands to play this venue….it may have been Ricky McLagen Revue, which had a couple members of Uranus.  When they first played, the Cedar was under its previous name, The Blue Boot. Name changed on June 15/1978 when Foreplay played.
      10. Uranus….Lonesome Train….from the You’re So Square LP from 1980. You’re So Square was a top 10 hit on AM radio in Canada in May of 1980! And Uranus toured western Canada, appeared on CBC television twice, were about to head to the Maritimes and instead broke up!
      11. Bop Cats….I Can’t Help It….from a 7” and featured Londoner Cameron Marshman on bass. Bop Cats played the Cedar many times, one New Years Eve show they were joined onstage by Diode John Catto!
      12. Hi Fis….Look What You’ve Done….from their only 7” and this band evolved into Blue Rodeo a couple years later. Only remember seeing them once at the Cedar and they were a tight powerpop combo with some early Beatles overtones.
      13. Teenage Head……Picture My Face….from a live recording at the Spoke and Rim Tavern at Western University 2/18/1981. This was broadcast over the airwaves of CHRW and I managed the tape the show on my cassette recorder. The event was for students of Western only so I wasn’t able to go….and that guitarist on this track isn’t Gordie Lewis as he was recovering from an auto accident and it’s rumoured to be Jimmy Huff.
      14. Teenage Head….Those Things You Do…. As above. Teenage Head played the Cedar many times and they would always pack the house!
      15. The Shakers….Out The Door….from a 7” and they were from Hamilton. Dave Rave was guitarist/vocalist and is now vocalist for Teenage Head and he was a guest a couple weeks back here at Radio WW.
      16. The Sinners….No Brains Required….from a 7” they released. Paul Wootton was guitarist/vocalist in this combo and went on to….
      17. Spiral Scratch…..No Familiar Faces….from a live recording at the Cedar 10/9/1981.
      18. Spiral Scratch….Gonna Rock (this might not be the proper name of this song) and as above.
      19. Crash 80’s…..Thrills…..from their only 7”.
      20. Crash 80’s…..Nowhere To Hide……from the cassette compilation Domestic Animals and a live recording from Larry’s in Toronto.
      21. Crash 80’s…..Waiting For The Heat….from the above 7”
      22. The Stoves…..Jail…..from a 1979 live recording at the Cedar Lounge.
      23. NFG…..At The Boot…..from a demo recording with Simon Lewis on guitar. The Boot referred to the Blue Boot, which was the prior name of the Cedar Lounge.
      24. 63 Monroe…..Bad Boy……from a live recording at the Cedar Lounge Easter 1981 and was supposed to be the last ever show of NFG and 63 Monroe….or billed something like that as singer Scott gave away handfuls of the old NFG buttons.
      25. NFG….Hi-Jack Victim…from a live recording at the York Hotel, date unknown.
      26. First Date…..Good In Bed….from a live recording at the Cedar 10/15/1981. This was a short lived name of 63 Monroe as they reverted back to capitalize on the release of the 63 Monroe/NFG 12” EP, part of which was recorded live at the Cedar.
      27. B Girls……B Girls…..7” on Bomp records and this all female combo had local Marcy Saddy on the drums.  A current version of this band was in Japan recently on tour.
      28. Second Thoughts….Wound Up….from a 7” and features Mark Goodwin on guitar/vocals who is still active in Montreal.
      29. The Zellots….These Boots Are Made For Walking….from a live recording at the Kent Hotel in Guelph/Kitchener??  Recorded this one from the airwaves of CHRW, probably on the Simon Less radio show.
      30. The Zellots…..Let’s Play House….from a live recording at the Cedar August 1981 for Doug and Rose’s wedding party. Also on the bill of the show were Radio 4, Spiral Scratch and the first London appearance of Certain General. CG drove all day to get to London and walked into the bar, set up and started playing! Marcy Saddy was drummer for Certain General, hence the London Ontario connection.
      31. The Zellots…..Empty Victories….from a compilation called You Only Get One Shot At The Big Time released in Japan on the Wizzard in Vinyl imprint. This was a compilation CD of 5 bands from the late 70’s/early 80’s and features a booklet with pics of The Zellots playing here in London….Fryfogles and at a Dundas St East outdoor event from August 1980.
      32. The Zellots….Blades….as above.
      33. Radio 4….Is God A Man…..demo recording from this combo that morphed into Sheep Look Up, who I just found out, never played the Cedar but were in formation mode when the Cedar closed.
      34. Radio 4….4 Years….as above.
      35. Dead Rabbits…..Roadrunner….from a live recording at the Cedar 10/9/1981 with a slight lyric change when Wanda says ‘I’m in love with the Cedar Lounge’….so perfect for this show!
      36. The Enemas….Joe Wyatt….from the Animals Fight Back cassette and were from Guelph Ontario, except for bass player Brian Lambert who went on to Nach Dem Tode and he also did the Graphic Underground: London 1977-1990 Exhibit and show from 2012.

       

      That’s the end of Part 1 of the Cedar Lounge Story, Part 2 next week. And you can see the Cedar Lounge Exhibit on right now at the London Music Hall Of Fame, 182 Dundas St….open Saturdays Noon till 5PM.

       

      Thanx for the Tons of phone calls, texts, emails, FB messages and Heys!!!! That’s what makes it all worth while!

      Before we start the playlist, have to mention that $741 was raised for My Sister’s Place at the Demics Reunion/tribute show last Friday that was put on by Nick Perry!!! Great turnout, lots of fun bands, lots of old yet familiar faces and a great time was had by all….and money raised for a great cause!!

      And Huge Thanx to all that came out to the London Music Hall Of Fame on the weekend for our Doors Open!! We had over 850 people through the doors!!! There was loads of amazing local talent on the stage, and even out in the street stopping traffic and passersby!  And lots of familiar faces were on hand to check out the Cedar Lounge display in our Rolex Room!! Pics are on the Cedar Lounge FB page of some of the veterans of that scene that came by! And if you didn’t get a chance to drop by, we’re open every Saturday from noon till 5PM, 182 Dundas St…in the heart of the city!

       

      1. Frank Ridsdale…..All You Fascists….from the Bread and Roses CD that Frank released a couple years back. Frank was one of the many local entertainers on our stage at the Museum on the weekend. First time I’d seen Frank on keys since the early days of Uranus….ie about 1979!
      2. The Rizdales….Here I Go….from the Radio Country CD from 2007 and vocalist/guitarist Tom Dunphy has his Classic Country show happening at the Richmond on Saturday around 4PM.
      3. Dustbin Flowers….Take Me On…from the brand new Made To Last release and from right here in London Ontario.
      4. Mark Sultan….Coffin Nails….from his brand new Wasting Away release and a little more poppier than what we usually get from this guy. Originally from Montreal, now based out of Germany.
      5. Catl….Resistance Place….from This Shakin’ House LP and they are in town next Saturday at Call The Office…..they always put on a great show and have a brand new LP just being released here in Canada, but out in Europe where they’ve been spending more and more time.
      6. Frankie and Jimmy….You Was Born To Die…from the recent Blues On The Brain release and they come back to London in a month or 2.
      7. Dee Rangers….It Won’t Be Long…..from the brand new All You Need Tonight release and from Sweden.
      8. Dave Rave and the Governors…..Passenger Seat….from the brand new All Night Raves CD and Dave was in town with Teenage Head a couple weeks back.
      9. Dany Laj and the Looks…..Left Right To One….from the 7” that we finally got from Dany when they were in town opening up for Teenage Head.
      10. Walter Lure….Take A Chance With Me….from the new Wacka Lacka Boom Bop A Loom Bam Boo release. Walter was a Heartbreaker along with Johnny Thunders and still has that rock’n’roll swagger from the lower depths of Manhattan.
      11. Crime….Hot Wire My Heart….from a 1976 7”  and goes out to Johnny Strike who passed away last week. Crime were the godfathers of San Fran punk and went in way different musical directions than the rest of the punk/new wave combos of the era. Crime were more of a noisy, brutal, out of tune attack on the senses, both aurally and visually. They wore police uniforms on stage and even had an early member of The Flamin’ Groovies in the band.
      12. 16 Eyes….Bad Old Days….from the recent Look release and from Phoenix. Orin Portnoy, a vet of the early 80’s NYC garage era is in this band. Hey Orin!!
      13. Lou Reed….Vicious…..from the Transformer LP from 1972.
      14. Lou Reed….NY Stars….from the Sally Can’t Dance LP from 1974 and mastered by Toronto’s George Semkiw, who recently passed away. Lou really liked George’s work on his previous release and requested him to do this. George was in Richie Knight and the Mid-Knights when they had their number 1 hit back in 1963 with Oh Charlena….There’s other Canucks on this Lou Reed records, Michael Fonfara (believe he resides in Hamilton now, and have seen him on stage at TAIH a couple of times), Prakash John and Whitey Glan….look those names up on google for way more info than you could imagine!
      15. Alabama Shakes….Hang Loose….from the Boys and Girls CD from 2012. Been playing the shit out of this CD in the car recently….just love the production and sound on this one!!
      16. The Pack AD….Snow….from the just re-mastered and re-issued Tintype LP. This was Pack AD’s first release and struck a deep one on me! We brought this duo to the Brunswick for a weeknight gig for their first ever trip to London. The bar was so impressed, they had them back a few days later! And they’ve been back dozens of times since!! They were at Call The Office Tuesday and as always put on a great show! Was talking to guitarist Becky prior to, and it looks like this could have been their last time here in quite a while. The band is burned out touring and criss crossing Canada in a van. They’ve been doing it for over 10 years now and they need a bit of a breather and want to do a bit of studio work and maybe some select gigs and festivals closer to home. All the best to these fine young ladies!
      17. Coaching For Sara….Comes In Waves….recorded live at Radio WW 11/10/17
      18. Coaching For Sara….These People….from their first CD.
      19. Coaching For Sara….Look Around…..from a live recording at Radio WW 2/10/17. About this time, vocalist Shane Sawyer called in to talk about Coaching For Sara’s show at Fitzrays tomorrow night (Saturday). This could be their last show for awhile as they are going on hiatus due to work, family and all those other essential things. Shane called from an LTC (local city bus) bus to do this interview….think that’s a first for us! No idea what the other passengers were thinking about Shane while he was yammering about Coaching For Sara….LOL
      20. Coaching For Sara….Sister Won’t ….from their first CD.
      21. Ginger St James….Salvation….from the Diesel and Peas CD from a couple years ago and from Hamilton.
      22. Bob Seger…..Eastside Story….from the brand new Heavy Music CD which collects all the Cameo singles Bob released back in the mid 60’s. Mono, remastered and sounding really punchy, these songs sound so good!!! My ears can even hear a bit of the original tape hiss on one of the tracks and that’s a good thing to my ears! If you’re a fan of Seger’s later stuff, after the old records fell off the shelf and hit him on the noggin’, then you gotta hear theses amazing early singles! This was even before Bob knew what 2 + 2 was….
      23. Robbie Fulks and Linda Gail Lewis……Boogie Woogie Country Gal….from the recent Wild Wild Wild release on Bloodshot Records. Linda Gail is the younger sister of The Killer, and you can hear some of his piano rumblings in her playing.
      24. Peter and The Wolves….Hot Foot Woman….from the recent Howlin’ and Prowlin’ CD and from Calgary. This trio was at the Richmond a couple weeks back and put on 3 sets of pure rock’n’roll sounds! So pure!!
      25. The King Bees….Sweet Sweet Girl….from their 1908 debut LP and they feature Jamie James, who went to highschool here in London Ontario.
      26. The Dropouts….. Monster Bash….from their debut CD from 2003 and from London Ontario.
      27. Evil Farm Children…Valley Justice….from their 2008 The Evilling CD. This Ottawa trio re-united for a one shot this past summer. They used to play London fairly regularly about 10 years or so ago.
      28. The Chickens…..Get It Right….from their 2000 Prepare To Plug In CD and are 80% of UIC! UIC opened up for Wayne Kramer’s MC50 the other night in Toronto and will be playing in Hamilton in late November…..
      29. The Action…..Hey Sah-Lo-Ney….from the recent re-ish of The Action’s full catalogue. The Action were a mod/soul/Motown combo from the UK that only release a few singles in their career, but were idolized by the late 70’s/early 80’s mod/soul scene. This particular track is from 1966 and is the flip side of….
      30. The Action…..I’ll Keep Holding On….as above.

      1. The Dahlmanns….Get It Right….from the brand new release on Beluga Records with The Nomads as the band. Powerpop meets guitar rock and we all win!
      2. The Dahlmanns….American Heartbeat….as above.
      3. The Nomads….The Way You Touch My Hand….from the Where The Wolf Bane Blooms , 1983, Closer Records and a fave from the moment I bought this one! The guitars just seer on this one and The Nomads version of 5 Years absolutely shreds!!
      4. Tiger Bomb….Baby Come On….from a soon to be released record on Dionysus Records. This is Chris Horne, guitar shredder and howler outta the long running all girl combo, The Brood. Based in Portland, the legendary Brood actually made it into London one night many years ago. The extent of the advertising was a hand written poster on the doors of CTO. Missed that one and didn’t find out about it till somewhat later.
      5. Dany Laj and the Looks…. Left Right To One….from a soon to be released 7” and these kids are coming to CTO on Saturday September 7th, opening for Teenage Head. You’ve been warned!
      6. Peter and the Wolves….Vera….from the Papa’s Goin’ Out Of Town CD from last year. These guys are coming to the Richmond on Friday August 31st, and next week we’ve got a live to air scheduled with the band! Not to be missed after last year’s absolute Killer show!
      7. Delta Stone and the War Dogs….Ain’t Got The Blues….from a recent release and these guys are playing the bluesfest here in London this weekend.
      8. Thundermug….Big City….from the 1974 Ta Daaa LP and guitarist Bill Durst will be playing live at the bluesfest.
      9. Foghat…..Mean Woman Blues….from the Before Foghat LP of 1969 recordings in which the band plays rockabilly and rock’n’roll tunes for their own enjoyment (actually for mine too!). They are also at the bluesfest, highly doubt they’ll sound like this.
      10. Blue Oyster Cult….Summer Of Love….from the 1976 Agents Of Fortune and they are also at bluesfest.
      11. Frankie and Jimmy…..Lil Red Riding Hood….from the recent Blues On The Brain CD and they are not playing at the bluesfest. Just saw a brand new video of this song with puppets and lots of cool effects that’ll get you laughing….
      12. The Ramones….Danny Says…..from the 1980 End Of The Century LP and it was right around the release of this one, The Ramones made their first appearance here in London, at Centennial Hall with The Demics opening.
      13. Talking Heads….Psycho Killer….from the Talking Heads 77 LP and goes out to Danny who requested this on.
      14. The Mods….Step Out Tonight….from the recent Reactions LP on Ugly Pop Records. Late 70’s/early 80’s recordings from this Toronto based combo. They played The Cedar once as The Mods, then later on under the name The News….same band, but they felt Mods was a name used by too many other combos.
      15. The Kards….Pipeline….from the Here’s The Deal CD from a few year ago, and The Kards are playing in Woodstock tomorrow.
      16. Randall Pee Coltrane…..Let Your Freak Flag Fly….from the recent Atomic Love Burrito CD and goes out to The Cowboy.

      25. Beasts Of Bourbon……Drop Out…..from the Axemans’s Jazz LP from 1985 and goes out to Spencer P Jones who passed away earlier this week. Spencer was a guitar player and song writer for this Australian combo. He played in many other fine bands, but this was probably not only the most influential, but the one he’s most associated with. Crampsian blues scronch songs about death and all things not so nice.
      26. The Johnnys…..Edge Of Death….from the 1986 Highlights Of A Dangerous Life and this one actually came out in Canada on Enigma Records….another Spencer P Jones combo.
      27. Beasts Of Bourbon….Save Me A Place….from the Axemans’s Jazz LP as above. RIP Spencer.
      28. Samantha Fish…..He Did It….from the Chills And Fever CD from last year. This one features some of the Detroit Cobras backing Samantha’s red hot guitar.
      29. The Reply….I’m A Man….live recording from the long gone Brennan’s here in London 11/5/2011. The Reply were based in Toronto, but had long time London resident James Bond on keys and sometimes vocals. A great rockin’ soul combo who should have gone on to bigger and better things! So glad I got to see them a few times over the years.
      30. Johnny And The Canadians….Say Yeah…..1965 single from London Ontario and this was played from one of those Wyld Canada compilation CD’s.
      31. Ray Charles….I Don’t Need No Doctor….from a Greatest Hits compilation and we had to fade this one out…….

      Big Thanx for all the phone calls, emails, messages, texts and Heys!!!! That’s what fuels the fire here at Radio What Wave!!

       

      Next week we’ve got a live to air with Peter and the Wolves, an amazing rockabilly/rock’n’roll combo from Calgary. Later in the eve, they play at the Richmond Hotel.

      2. Fryd Chikin…..I Want Your Head….from the brand new release on Dirty Water Records. One man band from the UK, not to be confused with a similar, but slightly different spelling, one man band from the US South. Probable homage to the original one man psycho combo, Hasil Adkins.

      6. Simply Saucer….Low Profile….as above and my theme song.
      7. Joe Klassen….In My Town….from the Songs From The Gallows CD from a few years back. Joe was singer, guitar strangler in Lonesome Ghost, local 2 piece that played live on Radio WW and were the only local combo to appear on the legendary Garage Punk Hideout CD compilation series.

      16. Jamie James….Night Rockin’….from his 1985 LP. The Big One on Quality Records. Jamie went to school right here in London Ontario and got his musical start here. He was also in the Kingbees, who actually got to play on American Bandstand!
      17. The Legendary Tigerman…..Holy Muse….from the recent Misfit release on Dirty Water Records. This cat is from Portugal and has shifted his musical direction from the blues to this jazz/retro/soul/psycho/beat noire kinda sound that really kicks in after a listen or two.
      18. Robbie Fulks and Linda Gail Lewis….Round Too Long….from the brand new Wild Wild Wild release on Bloodshot Records. Linda Gail is the younger sister of The Killer, and obviously listened to big brother pounding the 88’s!

Probably my fave time seeing DOA as both Nash and Randy were jumping around and now sadly, both are gone.
      26. Gun Club……She’s Like Heroin To Me….from the Fire Of Love LP from 1981 and not the song I meant to play….Danny phoned in, so hadda play the next song cause Danny Sez:

    • Hey everyone! Just signed up here. My name's Alex Flamsteed, I'm the drummer of Speedlab. We have reuntited after 7 years. I recently moved back to Australia from the US where I was playing drums for Guttermouth and Bam Margera to reform Speedlab. We have just put out an EP 'ILL MIND TANK'. Would love your thoughts! We have an album written which we're recording in October/November. Our plan is to get our tunes out to as many people as possible so we can get on the road! 

      Here is links to our Spotify and Band Camp:

       
       
      Cheers! 
       
      Alex.
