Radio Show 26 Thursday August 22 , 2013 9-10pm Eastern US Time WBKM.ORG
Words by Tim Lewis.
I just got home from internet radio show number 26 on. I had new music to play, so a few discs to load in. One had an error that froze the console a bit (thank goodness the music was still playing) but once it cleared I was set to go. I stuck in a cool song before my song before, and stuck in two after my song after.
Song Before: Hiroshima Mon Amour – The Church
From our small city to the great big world, these are The Sounds Of Burlington. When I first started seeing music in Burlington there was a lot of old school rock and blues. Here are some of the best.
1.) Jumbled Cluck – The Dogcatchers
2.) I Don’t Like Working – East Coast Muscle
3.) Away From Here – Zoot Wilson And The Reputation
4.) Tennessee Line – Buck And The Black Cats
All those bands made Nectar’s the legend that it is. The blues rock sound changed when an odd bunch of guys reacted to the changing music of the world, and brought new sounds to Burlington.
5.) No More Sex – Pinhead
6.) 2 Hot 2 B a Prostitute – The Lestons
7.) Move Through Time – The Persian Claws
8.) Mirrors – Vetica
I loved seeing Vetica at the Precipice. I was hoping they would play again, and they are coming to Radio Bean tomorrow. I’m psyched I have a song to play by The Persian Claws. They’ve been playing some real nice rock shows lately. I got to know 2 Hot as a Party star song and love how catchy it is. Matthew Stephen Perry plays in both bands and it was great to see him at the Black Crowes show at the Maritime Festival on the waterfront last Saturday. The Crowes wrapped the night in a wonderful way, but I also caught Swale at the start of the day. Here is the next song on A Small Arrival, the melancholy and gorgeous Middlesex.
9.) Middlesex – Swale
10.) Dogs At The Door – Milton Busker
11.) Lonesome Lullaby – The Dwellers
That is a Gabrielle Douglas solo song, but sounds so much like a great Cush song. I love the Milton song and missed him at the Precipice. He is coming to Radio Bean tomorrow too. Swale were great at the festival. I think I forgot to mention how amazing Johnnie Day Durandis on the saw on that song. Speaking of Radio Bean, last night I saw the first show by the new drummer, the album release party, and the last show that Doll Fight! will play. It was a great loud fast show. Part of what made it great was openers Poxy. They really impressed me, and I will play one of their songs after Doll Fight!
12.) I Fight Back – Doll Fight!
13.) Be Aggressive – Be Aggressive
14.) Planning My Funeral – Poxy (It was supposed to be song 13 but it just popped out of the player and Be Aggressive popped it. I re-queued it, and it played fine. Phew!)
15.) Moles – When Particles Collide
16.) Weapon Factory – The Wards with The Dirty Blondes
17.) I-90 East – Rough Francis
Rough Francis are great. The Wards are classic Burlington, but still play out now and then. It’s nice to hear that version with Diane Sullivan singing a verse. Portland Maine’s When Particles Collide come to town, now and then, to rock us. Great lyrics in moles. Do you have a chemistry degree? Poxy were great at Radio Bean, and I’m glad the song played the second time. Be Aggressive rock. I’ll miss you Doll Fight! I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
Song After – Scattering Crows – Fish
The walk home was lovely. I ran into Hana Zara and Joe Adler. Joe said there will be a punk show coming up with Trapper Keeper, Blue Button, and Rough Francis. Whoo Hooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
