    • Radio What Wave November 23/2020 UIC Special

       

      This was a special on the band UIC and its various offshoot bands. UIC was supposed to be doing a live show at the Horseshoe the Saturday after this show aired, but it was postponed until January due to covid.  The show is arranged chronologically and there many more songs I wanted to include but due to time constraints this is what you get. 

      This show is pre-recorded about a week prior to airing as we don’t have access to the CHRW studios, again due to covid. Everything you hear on these shows is tossed together in my makeshift home ‘studio’ and all material comes from my collection.

       

      1. Gruesomes….What Wave…from Mr Garager’s Neighbourhood release from 1989 on  OG Records. UIC was also on this release.
      2. UIC….Superstar….from the recent FM Hill release and what better way to get things rolling.
      3. UIC…Telephone….recorded live 3/16/1985 at Call The Office, London Ontario. There might be video of this one as well as the next tune.
      4. UIC…. Instrumental….as above.
      5. UIC….When I’m Crazy….recorded live at St Stephens Hall 6/15/1985. This was our wedding bash and also playing that night were 3D Invisibles from Detroit and London’s Boy From Nowhere.
      6. UIC….I Got Nerve…from a cassette labelled First Demo 1986
      7. UIC….Cheap Generation….as above. This cassette was given to us by one of the members of UIC back then.
      8. UIC…Who’ll Start The End….from a cassette labelled Accusonic December 1985, and again given to us by the band. This song was also on Garunge, the cassette that came with What Wave zine #14 and released December 1987.
      9. UIC….Honest Can’t Survive…from the same cassette as above.
      10. Crop Dustin’….from the Our Garage release from 1986.
      11. UIC….You’re Gonna Miss Me….recorded live at Bullwinkles, London Ontario 2/14/1986. Also on the bill that night were the Purple Toads and making their London debut, Shark Graffiti (with their original singer and the only time we saw the band with him).
      12. UIC….Neat Neat Neat….recorded at Lee’s Palace, Toronto 6/28/1986
      13. UIC…Struck By An Once Of Madness…. recorded live at Les Fou Fonnes (sp?) in Montreal and probably on the same bill as The Gruesomes.
      14. UIC…. Cracked Actor….recorded live at Key West, London Ontario 11/6/1987
      15. UIC….Livin’ In The  Past….from the Live Like 90 release and recorded live at Lee’s Palace 11/4/1988
      16. UIC….Outta Hand….from The Wiseman Session, released in 2016 but should have come out in 1989.  If this had been released as planned, things might have been a bit different for UIC.
      17. UIC….Outta Hand….as above. Wiseman Sessions is easily my fave UIC release!
      18. UIC….The Grey and the Black….recorded live at CTO 7/14/1990.
      19. UIC….400 Blows… as above.
      20. UIC…Is It My Body….recorded live at CTO 2/16/1991

       

      1. UIC…. Poor Boy….from the Witches In Credible release from 1993 and the only UIC full length to not come out on vinyl, or be re-issued.
      2. UIC….It’s Alright….as above
      3. UIC….Do You Wanna Go?...from the Johnny Hanson Presents Puck Rock Volume 1 from 1994.
      4. Positively Stompin’…Little Bit Longer….from the 1994 Junk Drawer release. This was Teddy (RIP) and Murray’s combo that started as Possibly Stompin’, doing all Stompin’ Tom covers and evolved into a real band. PS is one of those bands that coulda and shoulda, but for some reason it didn’t happen. They had real management, a unique sound/style, appeared on television a number of times, got radio play and did showcase live shows.
      5. El Speedo….Rock’n’Roll Explosion…..probably from the El Speedo cassette (this might be a different version than is on the cassette) and features Dave on lead vocals.
      6. El Speedo…Speed… as above.
      7. Chickens…. White Squirrel Town….from the 2000 release Prepare To Plug In. Another of those bands that coulda and shoulda but it just didn’t happen. They made the trek to Cleveland to battle it out for Little Steven’s Garage Band awards and came in second.
      8. Chickens….Heart That Bleeds…from the 2003 Bring It On release.
      9. Smokestack Lightning….Volcano….from a 2003 demo and features Murray on the tubs, Roger Toad on bass, Paul Toad on bass and vocals on one other member.
      10. UIC….Mystery Train….from the recent FM Hill release and a long time UIC tune written by Richard Carstens. The Chickens used to do a really long drawn out version of this one, but there wasn’t time on the show to include it.
      11. UIC….Honest Can’t Survive….as above, from FM Hill
      12. UIC…Thunder From The Left…. As above….RIP Danny
      13. UIC…..Richard May…..as above and RIP to Dick. Dick was one of the constants at the Cedar Lounge but never actually met him until we ran into each other at a Demics show in Toronto in early 1981.

      Had a blast putting this one together, digging through all the live and demo cassettes and actually being able to find them! And this show goes out to Danny, Teddy and Dick!!

      Thanx to all that took the time to listen. And Huge Thanx for all the comments, messages, emails, and Heys!!!

      Back again next Monday at 6PM with another edition of Radio What Wave.

      3. Chris Jacks…Train Of Thought…from his brand new Miles To Go release. Chris normally spews out wild psychedelia or fuzzed out 60’s garage punk with his Japan based combo The Routes. His latest is way different, acoustic and laid back, but there’s still something lurking there.
      4. Edgar Breau….New Sacred Cow Blues…from his recent Shadows Of Ecstasy Release. Edgar is the leader of the long running Simply Saucer based out of Hamilton.
      5. Creatures Of Condition…Stuck In Hell…from their recent EP and from Windsor Ontario. Former Lost Patrol guitarist Dave Whiteside is in this combo.
      6. Vicious Dreams….Matter Of Time….from an upcoming release and based in Florida.
      7. Andy Butler and the Isolators…Down In The Basement…Andy put out the word he was looking for others to record during the pandemic, and this is the result! Reminds me of Teenage Head and that ain’t a bad thing around these parts. Peter Hudson played and put this all together, and speaking of…

      16. Warren Smith….Rock and Roll Ruby….from the Legendary Performer release and this song came from 1956 and recorded at Sun. This is the beginning of our tribute to Stan Kesler who passed away recently. Stan played steel guitar on this on and did a lot of behind the scenes work at Sun Studios.
      17. Charlie Feathers…I Forgot To Remember To Forget….from the Rockabilly’s Main Man release from 1979 and Stan co-wrote this one with Charlie. Elvis made a hit of this song.
      18. Sam the Sham and the Pharoahs….Mystery Train….from their 1966 Greatest Hits release which Stan produced and most likely it was his idea to take this rockabilly song and give it a Bo Diddly beat.
      19. Sam the Sham and the Pharoahs….Li’L Red Riding Hood…as above with Stan Kesler producing.
      20. James Carr…The Dark End Of The Street….from his 1968 A Man Needs A Woman release which Stan engineered.
      21. Satan’s Pilgrims….Ben Tenaka….from the Flaming Burnout compilation from 1977 on Estrus and goes out to Dan Sich.
      22. Satan’s Pilgrims…Psycle Pswami…from the Continental Magazine #17 compilation from 2010. Continental Mag is still running and still has CD compilations coming out.
      23. The Astronuts….The Gooch…from their self titled cassette release. Might be a coupla Gruesomes and one of Ray Condo’s Hard Rock Goners involved in this one.

      25. Thing From Outer Space…Mai Tai….their latest and from London Ontario.

      29. Hook Up….Driftwood….from the C60 Go! cassette that came out on Record Store Day in 2011. At the time, they were based in Montreal, but later moved to Hamilton and then Saskatoon before disbanding.
      30. Lonesome Ghost….Haunted By God….from their self titled cassette that came out on Record Store Day in 2011. From Aylmer Ontario and don’t hold that against them as both members have long since moved to London.
      31. Fine  Print…Haunt You No More….from their self titled cassette that came out on Record Store Day in 2011 and they were from London Ontario.
      32. Randall Pee Coltrane…Self Medicated Man….from his upcoming The Gnu Normal release and based out of Barrie Ontario.
      33. CW Stoneking…The Zombie…from his Gon’ Boogaloo release from 2014. Rumours have it that CW is retiring later this year. We never did get a chance to see him, as we missed his Toronto appearance a couple years back.
      34. CW Stoneking…We Gon’ Boogaloo…. As above.
      35. Thunderqueens….Bulldozer….from their recent release on Yeah Right! Records and this duo lives here in London Ontario.

    • Hi everyone

      We've just released our debut single in which we were aiming to mix the sound of 60s American acid rock (such as the 13th Floor Elevators), and the harsh garage rock sound of the 'British Invasion', on top of having old school sunken lo-fi production and drenched in reverb. Let us know what you make of it

      Music Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xWtea6PNE0E
      Bandcamp: https://sawelunderground.bandcamp.com/

      We plan to have a limited vinyl pressing of an upcoming EP by next year sometime.
