      Radio What Wave Playlist Jan 3/2013

      This is our first show of the new year and we continue from the previous show with tunes from 2012. We started about 20m prior to 6PM today as the DJ's of that show wanted to leave early.

      1. 63 Monroe...At The Boot...from the cassette that comes with What Wave 24, Slippery's Club Hits.

      63 Monroe at Call The Office, Oct 27/2012 as part of our Graphic Underground: London 1977-1990 show.

      2. The Stoves...Can't Slow above.

      3. Uranus...Motorbikin' above.

      Uranus at Call The Office, Oct 27/2012 as part of our Graphic Underground: London 1977-1990 show.

      4. Spiral Scratch...Still Rockin' above.

      5. The above.

      The Zellots at Call The Office as part of our Graphic Underground: London 1977-1990 show.

      6. Light Bulb Alley...Long Time Coming...recorded live at Call The Office 5/4/12. MOTO was also supposed to play this show, but he was turned away at the Canadian border for attempting to do shows without any paperwork. There's a lesson to be learned here, as Customs Officers found out about MOTO's shows via facebook.

      Light Bulb Alley....the 3 Stooges of Rock'n'roll! L to R; Allistair, Seb and Karlo.

      Anyways, Light Bulb Alley cranked it up several notches and delivered the best show that i've ever seen them do!! It was as if they were in a race as they plowed through their set in record time. Drummer Seb was on fire in more ways then one, as he was battling a wicked virus of some kind that added fuel to the rock'n'roll flame that was burning. Seb was in pretty rough shape after the show, and the band decided to head directly home base in Montreal and not stay the night. Later i was told the band had to go directly to the hospital in Montreal (after their 9 hour drive home) to get Seb checked out. And Seb was fine after several days rest.

      Unfortunately, there was only one witness to Light Bulb Alley's full and my trusty recording device. One other witness caught part of the set and he isn't talking.

      7. The Hook Up...Church Belles...recorded live at Grooves Records 9/8/12 and the last time The Hook Up played London. They've just finished moving to Hamilton Ontario and will be going under the name of Dead City Soul Review.

      The Hook Up at Grooves 9/8/12.

      8. The Deadly Hearts...The Wobble...from their self titled and only CD. Halifax combo that delivered a storm and walked away laughing and leaving us begging for more. Featured our pal Myles Deck on drums, who is currently touring Europe with heavy metalers, Cauldron.

      9. The Reply....The Reply...from their brand  new CD, Downtown Soul. In stores really soon.

      The Hook Up at Brennan's, Apr 21/2012.

      10. Magic Christian...Teenage Head...on Schizophrenic Records outta Hamilton Ontario. Magic Christian was in Hamilton for one night only, studio time was booked for the daytime and the call went out to Gord Lewis (guitar for Teenage Head), Michael Fonfara (keyboards for Lou Reed, Rhinoceros and many others) and Dave Rave (guitar/vocals for The Shakers, Teenage Head and his many solo recordings). This motley crew was joined by the members of Magic Christian; Cyril Jordan (guitar), Eddie Munoz (bass), Paul Kopf (vocals) and Dr. Clem Burke (drummer extraordinaire). The agenda; to record penultimate versions of Teenage Head (Flamin' Groovies) and Let's Shake (Teenage Head). And this single is proof that the mission was accomplished!

      Magic Christian joined by Dave Rave and Gord Lewis, Hamilton Ontario Jan 20/2009

      I was talking to Dave Rave about the recording that evening at the Magic Christian show and he was still in heaven after getting to work with one of his heroes, Cyril and how everything went so smooth in the studio. I took a picture of Dave and Cyril sitting at a table together...damn batteries in my camera died on the spot! Maybe an omen or maybe just a lesson to bring spare batteries when going to see your heroes. And that night's show was one of my all time fave shows ever!!!

      11. The Dead Beat...2000Lb Bee Part 2...from their CD, Boss Sound. Hamilton based 3 piece surf combo.

      12. The Blue Squares...It's No Wonder...from Supercharged Sounds, Volume 8, from the garagepunk hideout. If you dig this radio show, please check out the garage punk hideout website.

      13. A Passing Fancy...I'm Losing Tonight...from an  Ugly Pop Records 7" re-issue. Toronto based combo from the 60's who released this killer single back then.

      14. The Kards...Pipeline...from their Here's The Deal CD.

      15. T.H.E....Grilled Cheese....local combo who recorded this demo.

      16. The Hypnotics...Here She Comes...from their only LP, Static Fuzz Radio. Technically released in 2011, but we didn't get our mitts on it until 2012. The Hypnotics played an evening of 2 shows here back in November and delivered the goods live.

      17. Joey Ramone...Rock'n'Roll Is The Answer...from his Ya Know CD that came out this year.

      18. The Pack AD....Sirens....from a 7" on Mint Records where they do the vocals in French.

      The Pack AD at Radio WW HQ's with our mascot Rory!

      19. Masters Apprentices....Wars Or Hands Of Time....another Ugly Pop 7" re-issue.

      20. In-Sect...I Can See My Love....yet another Ugly Pop 7" re-issue, and like above, is a re-ish of wyld Australian 60's garagepunk noise.

      21. The Snails...Satisfaction Guaranteed...from their self titled debut CD on Action Records.

      24. Bloodshot Bill...Right Out The Door...from his Out The Door 7" on Transistor Records.

      25. Hip Bone Slim and the Knee Tremblers...Square Guitar...from their CD on Dirty Water Records. Bo meets The Milkshakes in the laundromat and this is what comes out in the wash.

      26. The Gruesomes...Bikers From Hell....from their first LP, Tyrants of Teen Trash which has been re-isshed on Groovie Records outta Greece. Try Ricochet Sound in Montreal if you're looking for copies of this one.

      27. The Basements...Wrong...from their recent CD, I'm Dead, on Lost In Tyme Records outta Greece. This is also home to the long running garage zine, Lost In Tyme.

      28. The Felines...Boots...Denmark all girl combo who released a 4 song single on Hey Girl Records.

      29. Drug Free Youth...Mysteries Of Life:Ms Abigail Doe...from their CD, The Avocado Index. Greek based psychedelic combo.

      30. The Speaking Tongues....Karma Blues...from their only vinyl LP. This was probably released in 2011, but had to be included as The Speaking Tongues broke up a couple months back. They were a live fave of ours, as we had them at several shows including a birthday party for the boss.

      Speaking Tongues at Call The Office April 30/2010

      31. Orie Hitt Machine...Killer Inside Me....a demo, probably recorded in the mid 70's, but didn't surface until 2012. Local mystery combo who's identity we've sworn not to reveal.

      That's a wrap, thanx for all the emails, facebook messages and attempted phone -ins (phones were down during this show).

      Radio What Wave Playlist Dec 6/2012

      It's all women's voices day here at CHRW as a memorial for the Montreal Massacre that happened in 1989. Women engineering students were selectively murdered by a maniac...

      Radio What Wave Playlist Oct 18/2012

      The continuing saga of the Graphics Underground London 1977-1990 story as we play only London Ontario bands from about 1978 to 1990. The Graphics Underground show happens the weekend of Oct 26th, with the art show opening on friday and the party at Call The Office on Saturday Oct 27th...Uranus, The Zellots, NFG and The Enemas re-uniting for one night only.

      We were given the go ahead to start about 20m early, so we played the first 4 songs from the about to be released cassette, Slippery's Club Hits, which comes with What Wave #24 which will be released Oct 26th...

      1. 63 Monroe...At The Boot...recorded at the Cedar Lounge, Easter 1980. This song is a celebration of the good times we had at the Cedar Lounge.

      2. The Stoves...Slow Down...recorded live at the Cedar Lounge, May 1979.

      3. Uranus...Motorbikin' to air from CFNY May 1980.

      4. Spiral Scratch...Still Rockin'...recorded live at the Cedar Lounge fall 1981.

      And here's where we start our regular show.....right around 6PM so the faithful few can listen to my usual fuckups on the radio....

      5. Peter Tangredi... Life Is A Passion....from The Demics Covers CD that came out in 1998. A song that tells what reality was like back in the late 70's...fucking aerosmith, foghat, pink floyd and worse ruled what passed for radio back then. You couldn't walk down the street looking like a punker without being verbally and/or physically hassled. Shouts of 'Hey Devo' were expected...why Devo? I have no fucking clue, but that's probably all the rockers could comprehend for the music we dug. Now anyone can walk down the street with a pink mohawk, stud covered leather jacket and facial tattoos and no one will give you a second look....

      6. Legend Killers...Beg...demo from 1986 not long after they first started. The only band to appear on EVERY compilation we've ever released...something like 11 cassettes, a 7" EP and 2 LP's. And this is why!

      7. Legend Killers...Stepping above.

      8. Legend Killers...You'll Get Yours...from the Better Than Hammerin' EP that came out in 1989 on What Wave Records.

      9. Legend Killers...Baby Sitter...from a CD they released when they reformed about 10 years ago where they collected a bunch of songs they released over the years.

      10. UIC...New Rose...recorded live at Call The Office 3/16/85. You can find some of the songs from this gig up on might see a younger version of me dancing up front by the stage.

      11. UIC...Our Garage...title song from this LP from 1986 on Fringe Records.

      12. UIC...Pushed Into The Hole...from the 1989 Wiseman Sessions that were issued in an extremely limited edition many years ago. Someday they may come out on vinyl...

      13. UIC...Green Lady...from the 1989 LP, Live Like 90 on OG Records.

      14. The Zellots...On The Dole...recorded early 80's at the Kent Hotel in Kitchener Ontario. Probably recorded by Peter Moore, the big name producer who presently does all kinds of mastering, TV documentaries, producing, etc....

      15. The Zellots...Blades...from the Japanese CD, You Only Get 1 Shot At The Big Time...on Wizzard in Vinyl in 2006.

      16. The Zellots...Let's Play House...recorded live at The Cedar Lounge 8/17/81 for a wedding.

      17. Crash 80's...Waiting For The Heat...only 7" this band ever released...1980.

      18. Regulators...What's In The City...from their only 7" on Ready Records. For Jeff Morritt, singer/guitarist who passed away recently.

      19. Regulators...Sherry Share It...recorded live at the Polish Hall 11/2/79. The Polish Hall was used and abused at many gigs in the early days of the London punk rock days.

      20. Second Thoughts...Wound Up...from their one and only 7" 1980.

      21. Finks...Can't Say No...from their only single, mid 80's. These guys actually got airplay on CKSL AM here in London....something that just doesn't happen to indy bands...ever!!

      22. Redline...Brand New Cadillac...recorded live at Fryfogles June 1983. Fryfogles jumped onto the new wave/punk band wagon fairly early, entertaining artists like The Stranglers, DOA, Bopcats, John Cale, Panther Burns, 999, Vice Squad, The Professionals and many many more.

      23. The Stoves...So You Say...recorded live at The Cedar Lounge May 1979.

      24. The Stoves...Just My above.

      25. Radio 4...We Are The Architects...from a basement recording...early 80's.

      26. Sheep Look Up....Burning...from their first release, a cassette from 1983.

      The saga continues on Tuesday Oct 23rd at 3:30 PM as we do yet another special on London's early punk/new wave/whatever scene...on CHRW 94.9FM. Then we continue again next thursday at the usual time.

      Thanx for all the call-ins on this show!! And remember, next week is fund raising week here at CHRW so please pledge some $ to help us purchase new studio equipment....

      Radio What Wave Playlist Oct 11/2012

      1. Nick Curran...Kill My Baby...from the Reform School Girl from 2010....Nick passed away last weekend, only 35 and WAAAAYY too young. A guy who actually understood rock'n'roll and was playing it in 2012!! And one of the blackest sounding white guys ever!!!

      2. Hank And Frank...Nancy Sinatra...demo from the late 80's and was also on a What Wave cassette back then. Possibly the greatest song (Ok, one of my faves) to ever come out of London!! Hank is the Singing Bookman, Frank is from Uranus, Sci-Phonics and currently solo around London Ontario. This is the beginning of our all London show to help promote the Graphics Underground London 1977 to 1990 show and exhibit happening on Oct 26th weekend. And we'll be releasing WW 24, the all London issue that weekend as well. It comes with a 90m cassette of London only combos from about 1978 to 1992.

      3. Uranus...Secret Agent Man...from a live to air on CFNY in May 1980. Uranus are one of the 4 bands re-uniting on Oct 27th at Call The Office.

      4. Uranus...Uranium Rock...recorded live at The Embassy Hotel, 3/22/82 and broadcast on CHRW back then.

      5. The Sci-Phonics...I'm Ready...recorded live at The Key West Cafe, 3/11/87. The Sci-Phonics included a couple of members of Uranus and used to gig all around town from about 1984 to the early 90's. They reunite every few years and always put on a good show. The Key West was located on the west side of Talbot, right around where the Nite Owl presently is. Key West hosted a TON of cool Gruesomes, Deja Voodoo, Plan 9, Cheepskates, Flying Squad, The Fuzztones, Hysteric Narcotics, Flaming Lips, UIC, Purple Toads, Shadowy Men and many many more.

      The Sci-Phonics, mid 80's, looks like Key West Cafe.

      6. Sci-Phonics...Marie Marie...recorded live at Wortley Roadhouse and featured both Jerry Fletcher and Jack Whiteside on guitars, a very rare occurrence as Jack replaced Jerry many years prior to this performance.

      7. Uranus...You're So Square...1980 single that made it into the top 10 charts across Canada.

      8. Uranus...53 Buick...from their very first self released single.

      9. The Mongrols...The Day She Died...1987 demo of this 3 piece that opened for many touring bands in their 3 year existence. Led by Trelvis and they morphed through many name changes; Royal Mongrels, Ungone and a couple other names. Not to be confused with the present day Mongrels from London...who are also quite cool!

      10. The Mongrols..Play My above. This song was on a WW cassette back then.

      11. The Mongrols...Plastic Girls...from the 7" EP, Four Whom The Bell Tolls, 1988, which came with WW # 16.

      12. Drowned Hampsters...Politix...from the 1984 LP, The 'P' is For Political. London Ontario band with no connections to any other band in this city...a mystery band that released an LP and disappeared.

      13. Nihilist Spasm Band...Test Recording...from probably the longest lasting band in London history, having formed in the mid 60's and still going to this day. Noise that you love or hate.

      14. Hot House...Burn It Down...from the 1978 LP of the same name. They used to play the Cedar Lounge a fair bit and would call themselves aggressive rock. They self released this LP back in 1978.

      15. Redline...IRA...Sept 1983 demo. Commercial new wave band from London that played around the bars...this original showed they could do a lot more than just cover tunes.

      16. The Demics...New York City...from the Talk's Cheap EP. Probably the most well known punk tune to come out of sleepy London Ontario. And ironically, the song is about trying to escape sleepy London...

      17. The Demics...Grey and Black...from the NYC CD on OPM records which collects a bunch of live and demo Demics recordings.

      18. The Demics...400 above.

      19. The Demics...Blue Boy...recorded in Toronto in 1980.

      20. Jack Whiteside...I Won't See You No More...from the Demics Covers CD that original drummer Nick Perry released back in 1998. Jack was in Uranus and many other bands.

      21. Keith Whittaker...I'd Kiss You Honey...from his solo CD, Drink To Me that came out in 2007 on Bullseye Records.

      22. The Hippies...How You Gonna Live...from their only single which came out around 1983.

      23. The Hippies...9th...1983 demo when they had renamed themselves Tenement 13.

      24. The above. This song will be on the cassette that comes out with WW #24.

      25. Boy From Nowhere....What It Is...recorded live somewhere...Boy From Nowhere evolved out of The Hippies, with Jon Traut taking over the vocal duties....had to shorten this one as Ryan In The Red was about to start his Freakout show.

      Next week we continue with more local noise from the late 70's up to the early 90's.

      Graphic Underground London 1977-1990 is happening in London on Friday Oct 26th with the art opening at Forest City Gallery. Bell time is 7PM and it will be a licensed event. On display will be posters and zines from London from that era.

      Then on Saturday Oct 27th, at Call The Office, will be the official opening night party. Featuring 4 London bands from that era, re-uniting for one night only....Uranus, NFG, The Zellots and The Enemas. Bands should be starting around 9:30 PM. We'll also have some big screens showing pictures from the time period.

      5. Pack AD...8...from their latest LP, Unpersons. Pack AD play Call The Office on Oct 13th. This song is filled with venom and hate and they usually dedicate it to me at live shows...

      The Pack AD visiting WW HQ's and posing with our mascot, Rory The Wonder Dog!!

      6. The Gruesomes...Get Outta My Hair...from their first LP, 13 Unlucky Hits, which has just been released on green vinyl on Groovie Records from Greece. Limited pressing of 800, but you should be able to find it or mailorder it.

      The Gruesomes visiting our old WW HQ's back in the late 80's.

      7. Evil Farm Children...Brain Buffet...from the brand new Garagepunk Hideout CD called Garage Monsters. We've had Evil Farm Children here in London many a time and they always put on a great show!

      Evil Farm Children at Victoria Tavern here in London, 5/23/09

      8. The Snails...Pollution...from their recently released self titled debut CD. It's on Action Records outta Greece.

      9. Cile Turner...Crap Shootin' Sinner...from the compilation LP, Stompin'. Picked this up at Star Records in Oshawa the other day. Haven't been to Star for a few years and it's still the same, stacked with cool records!! For those that don't know, Oshawa is just east of Toronto and Star is well worth a stop if you're in the area!

      10. Angry Samoans...Inside My Brain...from the 1980 EP of the same name. Angry Samoans are supposed to play Call the Office on this coming Wed night.

      11. Angry Samoans...I Lost My Mind...from the 1990 LP. STP Not LSD LP.

      12. Apecassette...Ambiguous...from the Stupid CD. 2 piece art/noise combo from Windsor Ontario who opened up for Bloody Diamonds last week.

      13. Jehosaphat Blow...Oh Ya Oh from this one man band who seems to move constantly.

      14. Certain General...Hello My God...from the 1982 12" called Holiday Of Love. Certain General were based in NYC and had Londoner Marcy Saddy (X B Girls) on drums. They came up here in August of 1981 and played several shows while on vacation here. This is the start of our London only show to help promote our big event coming up on the weekend of Oct 26th, Graphic Underground London 1977-1990. The rest of the show is London bands from that era...with almost all of the songs being unreleased.

      15. Boy From Nowhere...Slow at Call The Office 3/1/86. London's first 60's/70's garagepunk combo who only played cool cover songs.

      Boy From Nowhere playing in our basement, 1986??

      16. B5 Blue...It's My Pride...recorded live at Mortz's, early 90's. Boy From Nowhere morphed into B5 Blue and still only played cover songs, but did it with style and finesse!

      17. UIC....Cracked Actor...recorded live at Key West Cafe 11/16/87. I don't even remember UIC doing a David Bowie tune, but here's the proof! And i musta heard it as i taped this show! Key West Cafe was a small upstairs bar that would pack people in for real rock'n'roll, which UIC specialized in!

      UIC promo shot we did after a show..mid 80's???

      18. Flying Squad...Lewd Behaviour...late 80's demo from this band that you either loved or hated, nothing in between! Biker rock long before it became acceptable!

      Flyinq Squad after a gig at the Civitan Club...mid 80's???

      19. Terminals...Billy Stick Totin' Jerk...from their only cassette, We Kill. Terminals were probably the first punk band in the city to adapt to the faster hardcore sound that started in the early 80's. They were instrumental in bringing many out of town bands to play in sleepy London Ontario.

      20. Redline...Mystery Dance...recorded live at Fryfogles June 1983. Redline were more of a commercial new wave type of band than punk. Fryfogles is long gone, and it was host to many cool combos, among them; Panther Burns, John Cale, Black Flag, Flipper, The Professionals, Stranglers, 999, Rezillos, DOA and TONS more!! We did a special on Fryfogles a year or so ago on Radio WW and talked about the venue and played many of these bands and more.

      21. The Generics...Someday...basement demo, but this song was included on their only 7". Buncha snotty kids when they arrived on the scene, but they certainly proved their worth!

      22. Radio 4...Is God A Man...early 80's basement demo recorded by Chris Richards. Radio 4 evolved into Sheep Look Up.

      23. Sheep Look Up...Jumper...from their early 80's cassette. This is one of those bands that coulda and shoulda, but just didn't! Their early demos are just amazing as can be heard here.

      24. Legend Killers...Gunpowder...from their 1989 7" on What Wave Records. All of the above local bands will be on the 90m cassette tape we're releasing with What Wave zine 24 due out Oct 26th at Graphics Underground London 1977 - 1990 opening night.

      Early Legend Killers promo shot..probably taken by Martha.

      That's a wrap, thanx for all the phone-ins and emails. We're back next week with an all local show, playing music from about 1977 to 1990 in preparation for the Graphic Underground London show.

      This was a special show as we had Bloody Diamonds in for a live to air. Bloody Diamonds are from Halifax, Nova Scotia, on the east coast of Canada on the Atlantic. London Ontario was one of their many tour stops and we got them for a double shot as they played onair and then put on a great show at The Black Shire Pub later that eve.

      1. The Hook Up...List Of Diagrams...from their soon to be release CD, Call Up The Devil. We had The Hook Up on last week's show yammering about this CD and lots of other stuff.

      2. Radio Birdman...More Fun...from the Living Eyes LP, 1978. Guitarist Chris Masuak is in sleepy London Ontario tonite to preach the rock'n'roll to us sinnners!!

      3. Radio Birdman...Murder City Nights...from the Radios Appear above!!

      4. New Christs...Born Out Of Time...from the Detritus 12"....possibly one of my all time fave songs!! This is boner material!!! Rob Younger is so fucking brutally honest on this one it slays me every time!!

      5. Willie Alexander...Kerouac....from the Live at The Rat double LP from 1976. Willie should be in the Rock'n'Roll Hall of Fame as he's more than paid his dues since the mid 60's. He's played in many a Boston combo, spent time in the Velvet Underground and is still active to this day. This is one of those mellow songs that always gets stuck in my noggin' and i start doing  the sickly oooh oohhh out loud and get a lot of strange looks!

      But the real reason i played this track, was as part of a tribute set to Sam Sniderman, founder of the record store chain, Sam The Record Man. A Canadian institute!! And one of the key figures  in helping  to promote up and coming Canadian bands! I bought this record at Sam's here in sleepy London back in about 1979 and it blew my mind!! So many cool Boston combos and my first hearing of DMZ and The Real Kids who have gone on to become 2 of my fave combos!! Thanx for bringing this record into Canada Sam!

      6. Tom Wilson and The Florida Razors...New York City..I vividly remember seeing The Florida Razors for the first time at a place called The Firehall here in sleepy London Ontario. They blew me away with their straight ahead rock'n'roll from The Flamin' Groovies school of rock!! Became an instant life time fan that night, and next day i happened to see this single up on the wall at Sam's in London and it was mine!!! Tom Wilson is now a Canadian institution with Blackie and The Rodeo Kings and his former combo, Junkhouse. Sometimes he spots us in the crowd and yells out What Wave!! Kind of embarrassing as we're pretty low profile people.

      7. The Beatles...Revolution...This is the first single i ever bought at Sam's in downtown Toronto at the flagship store. My parents took my sister and i to downtown Toronto and somehow we ended up at Sam's. It was probably me bugging the shit out of them to go into Sam's. Bought (or maybe my parents did???) this single and Cream's Sunshine Of Your Love single from the wall at Sams...needless to say, i was in heaven!! Charting singles at Sam's were a bit cheaper than our local K Mart and went for 66 cents back then. And that was a LOT of money to me back in 1968!

      8. Bloody Diamonds...Monster....Live over the airwaves at CHRW...then Jake goes and breaks a bass string part way through the song! This is live radio and we work with whatever happens!!

      9. Oily Birds...Second Cousin...not the song i wanted to play, but a good one nonetheless. Recorded live at Jimmy Jazz in Guelph Ontario, 4/28/12. Oily Birds are opening up for Chris Masuak at Call The Office Tonite (with a capital T!).

      10. The Kards...Cry Just A Little...from the Here's The Deal CD. The Kards are at London Music Club tomorrow night.

      11. Blue Demons...Beatnik Bandit...from their latest 7" on Boppa Do Down Records outta Toronto.

      12. Bloody Diamonds...She Ain't over the airwaves.

      13. Bloody Diamonds...Bright Lights over the airwaves.

      14. Bloody Diamonds...Baby Don't Be over the airwaves.

      15. Bloody Diamonds...They've Got over the airwaves.

      16. Bloody Diamonds...Lady Of The Night...from their LP They've Got Secrets.

      17. Bloody over the airwaves and the end of our live to air presentation. Huge thanx to Bloody Diamonds for stopping by, setting up and playing live to air. It's a massive undertaking as they've gotta find CHRW, unload all of their equipment and cart it up to the station, get set up in a tiny room and do countless sound checks so everything sounds great to you, the listener. And once they're done, they've gotta cartload all of their equipment back to the van and rush to do a soundcheck!!

      And a HUGE thanx goes out to the guys behind the scenes, the sound engineers, Alex and Chris who make everything sound so nice over the airwaves!!!

      18. Black Flag...6 Pack...from a 7" and to plug the Raymond Pettibon exhibition that opened that eve at McIntosh Gallery on the campus of Western University. For those interested, there's many many early Black Flag posters on display at the gallery.

      19. The Ventures...Guitar Freakout...from the LP of the same name. Picked this one up way back in 1967 at our local K Mart and it still sounds good 45 years later!! That 60's vinyl was tough and took a lot of abuse from my tiny foldup record player back then! This goes out to Nokie Edwards who suffered a heart attack last week while on tour in Japan. All the best Nokie!! And he is a member of the Rock'n'Roll Hall Of Fame!

      20. The Snails...Satisfaction Guaranteed...from their brand new self titled CD on Action Records outta Greece. We like Action Records as they put out our LP, Thee Cave Comes Alive..songs from the What Wave Fanzine tapes back in 2004.

      21. Flying Squad...Godzilla...demo from the late 80's that just might appear on our next cassette coming out Oct 26th at the Graphic Underground London 1977 to 1990 exhibit. Had to cut this one short as Ryan In The Red was taking over the airwaves with his Freak Out!!

      Back atcha next week with more noise that annoys. Huge thanx to Bloody Diamonds, and they put on a KILLER show at Black Shire that night!! I shoulda made a recording of that show...

      Dave and Jaime of The Hook Up outside the CHRW doors.

      On this show we had Dave and Jamie of The Hook Up, a soon to be Hamilton Ontario based garage/rock'n'roll/soul/surf/psych combo. They did a live to air on Radio WW back in the winter of 2011 and since there have been major changes in the band, it was time to get them back on Radio WW to yammer and play some tunes...

      1. Nihilist Spasm Band...This Is A Test...great sound check from these local noise makers to wake everyone up and get the show on the road.

      Black Frame Spectacle at London Music Club June 8/2011

      11. Detroit Cobras...Summer The Slum...from the SFTRI LP, Mink Rat Or Rabbit...30 or so years later and the same song.

      12. Tom Jones...Evil...from a 3rd Man 7".

      13. Spencer Davis Group...I'm A Man...from a 7" and goes out to The Reply from Toronto.

      14. Bo Diddly...I'm A Man...from a 7"

      15. Jerry Lee Lewis...Matchbox...from the Live At The Star Club CD that Dave borrowed from the London Public Library!

      Jerry Lee Lewis, London Ontario Aug 16/1988. Think this picture was in What Wave...

      16. John Lee Hooker...The Motor City Is Burnin'....from a CD that Dave brought in...

      17. T Valentine...Teenage Jump..from a crazy R&B CD compilation that Dave brought in...wish i could remember the name of it.

      And next week we have our live to air with Bloody Diamonds, coming all the way from Halifax to play for you, the listener!

      Radio What Wave Playlist Sept 13/2012


      1. Tranzmitors....A Little Bit Closer...from their brand new La Ti Da 7".

      A well dressed Bryce Dunne of The Tranzmitors, Call The Office May 8/2011.

      2. Radio Birdman... Murder City Nights...from the Radios Appear LP, late 70's. Guitarist Chris Masuak is coming to sleepy London Ontario Friday Sept 28/2012. Here's a link to the facebook event:

      Three Canadian dates only...and probably a once in a lifetime event that you can't afford to miss.

      3. Radio Birdman...455 SD....from the Living Eyes LP.

      4. New Christs...Like A Curse...from the Detritus 12" and features Birdmen Rob Younger on vocals and Chris Masuak on guitar. The flip side of this, Born Out Of Time is one of the most wicked and honest songs ever!

      5. The Hitmen...Don't Hit Girls...from the 78-82 LP and once again, Chris Masuak on guitar. Hopefully those 4 songs are enough to get you out to catch this legend of Australian punk, who oddly enough, was born in Canada.

      6. Sammy Ambrose...This Diamond Ring...This is the original version of this 1965 number one hit by Gary and The Playboys. Who coincidentally i went to see last night. Entertaining show, but Gary's voice wasn't in the best form. They went through all the hits and Gary explained who wrote them and many other tidbits about the time period.

      7. The Standells...Barracuda...from the Rhino Best Of LP and part of a 60's set.

      8. The Yardbirds...The Nazz Are Blue...from the Over Under Sideways Down LP, original mono version, which to me, sounds WAY better than the stereo version.

      9. Eliza and The Strange...Lady Of The Night...from their self titled LP that came out early this year. This band is from Halifax and are now known as Bloody Diamonds. They are coming to London Thursday Sept 27th, Black Shire Pub. Plus, they'll be doing a live to air broadcast right here on Radio What Wave that day! There'll be a facebook event going up for that shortly.

      10. Eliza and The Strange...She Ain't above.

      The guy on the right is Jake, he's the bass player for Bloody Diamonds and his previous band, The Bad Bad Bad, appeared on Radio WW March 29/2012.

      11. UIC...Pushed Into The Hole...from the unreleased Wiseman Sessions, late 80's. UIC were from Exeter Ontario, sometimes referred to as Hooterville (Petticot Junction TV show from the mid 60's reference).

      12. Needles/Pins...Picture My Face...brand new La Ti Da single.

      13. Chelsea Beat...Victim Of Circumstances...Montreal combo who have an LP on Brooklyn based Killer Diller Records.

      14. Teenanger...Cops But Not Cops...from their recent Frights LP.

      Teenanger from behind the stage at Moon Over Marin, London Ontario June 27/2010

      15. The Hook Up.... 65 Has No Blues...recorded live at Grooves Records, Sept 8/ 2012.

      The Hook Up at Grooves Records, London Ontario 9/8/12. That's new member Adam in the bright green shirt.

      16. The Hook Up...Burnin'...from the recently remastered CD, Call Up The Devil. Next week we're going to have a member or 2 or 3 live on Radio WW to yammer about music and stuff.

      17. Alligator Wine...Hidden Charms...from the Other Space Sessions download. Argentina fucked up blues/noise combo who just might have been listening to some early Simply Saucer.

      18. Chris Spedding...Motor Bikin'..from the live Friday The 13th LP. Chris Spedding visited London a number of times in the late 70's/early 80's, but somehow i never got to see him. This version of Motor Bikin' is nowhere near as good as the version by Uranus which you will hear on the next What Wave cassette coming out Oct 26th.

      19. Galileo 7...Anne Hedonia...from their about to be released LP, Staring At The Sound. Guitar player, vocalist and leader Allan Crockford was in The Prisoners, James Taylor Quartet, Thee Headcoats and many more legendary combos. For some reason his vocals remind me of Wreckless Eric.

      20. Orrie Hit Machine...Slaving Meat Wheel....local combo and no other information is available....

      21. Munday Nuns...recorded live at This Ain't Hollywood (coolest club this side of Toronto) June 3 2012. Re-united for one night only and for some reason i was deemed responsible. They fucking rocked!!!

      22. Big John Bates...Wide Open Blues...from the latest Garagepunk Hideout download, Supercharged Sounds. Vancouver based rockabilly/Rhythm and blues style combo.

      Sometimes it's tough to get a beer at Call The Office...putting your instrument up on the bar seems to help! Big John Bates bassplayer in action at Call The Office April 3 2011.

      23. Ray Condo and His Hardrock Goners....High Voltage...from It Came From Canada Volume 2. Probably my all time favourite Canadian rockabilly influenced combo! No, scratch that, the BEST FUCKING ROCKABILLY combo to ever come out of Canada!! And they were WAY more than rockabilly as they delved into swing, gospel, surf instros, ballads and tons more! And they were all really nice and cool guys!! Spent way too many hours yammering to guitarist Erik Sandmark about old cartoons and bad movies.

      One of my fave pictures of Ray Condo!! Rena took this one at Call The Office, late 80's at one of their very few times to come to London. Canada's skinniest cowboy was absolutely psychotic once he strapped on his guitar and hopped up on the stage!

      24. Johnny Terrien and the Bad Lieutenants...Eyes...from their latest split 7". We're lucky to have a band like this right here in sleepy London Ontario, so get out and catch these guys live whenever you can.

      25. The Living Deadbeats...Lost...from their self titled debut LP that came out this past summer. And they made 2 stops here in sleepy London Ontario!

      The Living Deadbeats, July 23 was a hot evening!

      26. The Johnnys...Motorcycle Mama...latest demo from this Toronto based combo who specialize in high energy late 70's punk.

      27. The Chocolate Watchband...Milk Cow Blues...from the Now Way Out CD on Sundazed.

      And that's a wrap, back again next week with a couple of The Hook Up members as they are in town for a little while. And the following week, Sept 27th we'll have The Bloody Diamonds on for a live to air.

      Thanx for all the phone-ins, emails, facebook messages and the HEYS!!!

      Radio What Wave Playlist.....Aug 16/2012

      For this particular show, we started one hour early, 5PM and played London Ontario combos from the late 70's up to about 1990. The reason, we're doing a big show on Oct 26th, called Underground Graphics London 1977 to 1990 which will be a visual display of the posters, zines, artwork etc from that era. This visual display will be at Forest City Gallery here in London. And for opening night, we've got a big bash planned featuring 4 local bands from the above era reuniting for the night; The Enemas, NFG, The Zellots and Uranus. It'll be an action packed night of rock'n'roll!  And if that isn't enough, we're bringing back our zine, What Wave for an all local issue that will be released at the opening of the show. We're also releasing a 90m cassette of almost all unreleased tunes from local bands from the 1977 to 1990 era. Some of those tunes may have been played in part 1 of the show.

      Part 1.....London Ontario bands

      1. NFG....Weekend Punx....recorded live in the late 70's/early 80' one is sure where it was recorded.

      2. UIC....Telephone...recorded live at Call The Office 3/16/85

      3. The Finks...Don't Bring Me Down....1987 demo

      4. Evil Hoodoos....Just Like recording, possibly from The Brunswick Hotel.

He was killed in a botched robbery several years after retiring the act.
