      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.
      17. Marcellus Wallace….Movin’ On Up….from their self titled CD from a couple years back.
      18. K Man and the 45’s…..Piece Of The Action….from their self titled release and a new arrival here at CHRW….Montreal based combo who were in town a few months back.
      19. Copper Crown…..Child’s Play….from the recent Walk With Fire release and they were at the Richmond a few weeks back.
      20. Legendary Tigerman…..Fix Of Rock’n’Roll…..from the recent Misfit release on Dirty Water Records and from Portugal.
      21. Jesse James Medicine Show…..I Just Lost My Mind…..new demo from this Hamilton based 2 piece who will be in London near the end of October….details closer to the time.
      22. Archie and the Bunkers…..Roaring 20’s…from the recent Songs From The Lodge CD and from Cleveland….2 teenage brothers who make a lot of noise!
      23. Sound Explosion…..Cause You Lie….from The Explosive Sounds Of… CD on Lost In Tyme Records out of Greece.
      24. Lucy and the Rats…..So Simple….from their recent self titled debut CD on Dirty Water Records and from the UK.
      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.

      1. The Thing From Outer Space….Mai Tai…..recent demo from this London Ontario based guitar instro combo.
      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.
      3. Tissues….Red Light….from the west coast and another new release here at CHRW.
      4. White Lung…Two Seen….from the 2010 release, It’s The Evil and from Vancouver.
      5. Simply Saucer….Nazi Apocalypse….from the Cyborgs Revisited LP from 1989 and originally recorded back in 1975. Simply Saucer’s former manager Rick Bissell passed away earlier this week and this goes out to him. Rick was responsible for getting the band into the Lanois home studio and getting these legendary recordings done. This was Bob and Dan Lanois long before they became world famous and at this point were still working in the family home.
      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.

      11. Aretha Franklin….Dr Feelgood….. as above.
      12. Aretha Franklin…..Chain Of Fools…from the Lady Soul LP on Atlantic Records from 1968.

      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!

      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:

    • Radio What Wave Playlist June 22/2018

       

      We dedicated this one to Nick Knox, longtime Cramp drummer and a purveyor of many excellent beats! The Cramps will always be special to me. Upon first hearing their second release, Psychedelic Jungle, my mind was blown wide open as they were treading similar ground to what I was really digging….that being 60’s garagepunk/psych! And that fueled my non-ending obsession, looking for those wild, crazy and obscure sounds that lurked below the surface! Thanx to The Cramps I bought and continue to buy way too many records that conceal these required sounds. Thanx Nick, Lux, Kid (and of course Bryan) and lastly Ivy!

       

      1. 5 Years Ahead Of My Time…The Cramps....from the How To Make A Monster double CD of Cramps coolness. Still remember the first time I heard The Cramps do this one, on the bootleg The Cramps Totally Destroy Seattle! Had no idea it was in their songbook and had only heard the Third Bardo’s version prior.  And this song certainly summarizes The Cramps and their goals!
      2. Long Day Jouney….Curio Shoppe…from The Count Bonniwell Electric CD and these guys are certainly Cramps fans!!
      3. Shoobies….All My Profs Are On Strike….from a recent download and these guys are from right here in London Ontario!
      4. Burning Peppermints…..I Wanna Go Home….from the Glitter Vomit release and from Birmingham Alabama.
      5. Marc Ribot….Rawhide….from the recent Y R U Still Here release we have at the station.
      6. Martin and The E Chords….Possibilities….from a demo our pal Gary Pig Gold sent us many years ago. Punk taken to its primitive basics.
      7. Jim Ashby….Speed City….7” on Speed City Records and the story of our little town back in the late 60’s/early 70’s. My fave record to come out of this town.
      8. Crash 80’s….Waiting For The Heat….from a 1980 7” from right here in town. Ties in with the recent blog I posted about The Beginnings of Punk In London Ontario….it’s a 3 parter on Blogger and there’s links on the Radio WW FB page. And oddly, lead singer Peter Tangredi just commented on the blog pointing out a missing step….ie The New York Dolls playing here in London Ontario….Thanx Peter!
      9. Lithics….Dancing Guy….from the recent Mating Surfaces release here at the station. Modern post punk outta Portland Oregon.
      10. Julia P…..Killer Chicks….from  yet another recent addition to the CHRW library and a re-ish of an early 2000 release and from Holland.
      11. Archie and The Bunkers…..Bill’s Bad Day….from the recent Songs From The Lodge release and these 2 teenage brothers are from Cleveland. Didn’t know this till recently, but Nick Knox had been helping these kids out a bit! Kinda makes sense now!
      12. Archie and the Bunkers….You’re My Pacemaker….as above. There’s a video on youtube for this one.
      13. The Cramps….The Way I Walk…..from The Cramps boxset of singles on Munster Records out of Spain. It’s a 10 7” box set, picture sleeves, postcards and pristine sound!
      14. The Cramps….Domino…. as above.
      15. The Mods….Step Out Tonight….from the brand new Reactions LP on Ugly Pop Records. Limited edition, already sold out and the very first time The Mods have had a full length 12” record!  The Mods were based out of Toronto Canada, late 70’s/early 80’s mod/punk/powerpop and made a couple of appearances here in London at The Cedar Lounge. Drummer David remembered those shows well and gave me some further info about their visits here a number of years back. This particular song was one of my faves from Toronto combos of that era!
      16. The Mods….You Use Me… as above.
      17. Johnny Terrien and the Bad Lieutenants….Only Game In Town….from the recent Half Wits LP and they are playing tonight at the Richmond.
      18. BB Guns….Bang Bang….live recording from CIUT and Moondawg Ballroom from early 2013.
      19. Catl….Gotta Thing For You….from the Soon This Will All Be Gone release from a few years back. Catl have a new release that hasn’t been released in Canada yet.
      20. Bloody Diamonds….Lady Of The Night….from They’ve Got Secrets from 2012 and from Halifax. Around the time this was released, we did a live to air with Bloody Diamonds when they were in town for a show. Think that is still up on soundcloud.
      21. Buttertones….At The Dojo…from the Midnight IN A Moonless Dream release that arrived recently at the station. From LA.
      22. Subsonics….Johnny Left Hand….from the Flesh Colored Paint release on Slovenly Records and another recent addition here.
      23. Newport Electric….Dancing To The Beat Of Your Broken Heart….from the brand new Thin Wild Mercury release, and NE had their release party at Aeolian Hall on the day this show aired.
      24. Les Sympathics De Porto Novo….A Min We Vo Nou We….from the recent African Scream Contest Volume 2 that arrived here at CHRW. This is a compilation CD on the Analog Africa imprint, that has released a TON of cool stuff.
      25. Picoby Band D’Abomey…..Me Adomina….as above.
      26. Pat Thomas Introduces Marijata….Salvation….from the recent Mr Bongo re-ish of this 1976 classic. Yet another recent addition here at CHRW. From what I understand, Pat Thomas spent some time in Toronto after this, possibly doing something with the soul/reggae scene there, as some of the material on this release is similar sonically to what came out in Toronto not long after this…
      27. Dustbin Flowers….Plasticine Nicotine….from their II CD and they are playing Fitzrays tonight.
      28. Vypers….Mr Girl…from the recent Champion 100 release and from Toronto.
      29. The Hippies….Je Cherche….from the Animals Fight Back cassette from about 1984 and was all London Ontario based combos of the day. The Hippies released a 7” around this time.
      30. Gilbert Smith….Talking 1980…..as above, but Gilbert was in combos like Sheep Look Up and The Zellots back then.
      31. The Cramps….Don’t Eat Stuff Off The Sidewalk….from the Psychedelic Jungle Lp from 1981. Every day I tell Joey, our pooch this, and he never listens.
      32. The Cramps….Can’t Find My Mind….as above, but I don’t tell Joey this as he already knows.
      33. The Cramps….Jungle Hop….as above.

       

      Thanx for all the phoners, emails, texts and FB messages!!!

       

      Next week it’s an all Canadian show as we start the long weekend off waving the red maple leaf!!

    • June 9, 2018 3:59 PM CDT
    • Radio What Wave Playlist June 8/2018. Beginnings of Punk/New Wave in London Ontario

      This is a special on the origins, causes and beginning of the punk/new wave music/art scene here in London Ontario. I wasn’t there for all of it, and haven’t run across anyone who has as there were so many somewhat inclusive events that you had to be in the know, to know about…so here’s my 2 cents.

       

      1. Nihilist Spasm Band….This Is A Test….from a CD whose title is symbols. There’s no doubt that the NSB were the originators here, as they started playing at the York Hotel, now called Call The Office. They had a weekly residence that probably brought more complaints than compliments as these artists made their own instruments, played to their own beat and did just want they wanted. The originators of what was to be called Noise and they count amongst their admirers/fans Sonic Youth who have actually guested with the band.
      2. Roxy Music…..Editions Of You…..from their second LP and they played London Arena 2/8/1975 and many who were to become involved in the punk/new wave scene were in attendance. Only thing missing was Brian Eno, as he had left the band prior to this gig and many were disappointed by this.
      3. Rough Trade….Birds Of A Feather….from the 1976 Direct To Disc LP that Jack Richardson produced. RT made an appearance or 2 in London, long before they had their early 80’s Canadian hits and were a musical theatre troupe who were into bondage, S&M and many other so called perversions and eager to display this on the stage!
      4. Nihilist Spasm Band….Stop and Think Shitheads…..yet another ‘song’ from NSB and the same release as above.
      5. The Diodes…..Nothing Can Change The Shape Of Things To Come….from the Time/Damage Live 1978 LP and recorded at the El Mocambo Tavern In Toronto. Oddly, the same week a band called The Rolling Stones played the same venue! The Diodes were the first punk band to play London, May 1977 at Niederman’s loft in downtown London. This was also the very first gig here in which an 8.5 x 11 poster was made and put up around town. The police put a stop to that, the postering that is, but the gig went on for about 30 or so people. It was a deal made between Ralph Alfonso, manager of the Diodes and Mike Niederman, as Mike had published some of Ralph’s poetry and writing via Applegarth Follies. And part of the deal was to get a rehearsal spot in the basement of the Liberal Headquarters in Toronto, and turn this space into a club. The club became the Crash’n’Burn Club, the first punk club in Canada and lasted part of the summer of 1977.
      6. The Diodes….Time Damage….as above. This was the oldest Diodes live recording that I could find in my collection.
      7. Eddie And The Hot Rods…..Ignore Them….recorded live at Fryfogles, downtown London Ontario 11/7/1977 as the Rods did a few nights here. The very first of the UK punk/new wave (the band were actually pub rock or protopunk, but the press called them punk) combo to play here in London, and the proper folks were all in attendance. Some band called Red Rider opened up for the Rods.
      8. Eddie and The Hot Rods….The End…. As above. Poor sound quality, but what do you expect from a 40 year old cassette?
      9. The Curse…..Eat Me…..from a live recording at Forest City Gallery here in London, 11/25/1977 put on by artist Gerard Pas. The Ugly were supposed to play as well, but claimed transportation issues and never made it to the gig. Food was tossed, alcohol was consumed, insults flew both ways and everyone had fun. FCG continues to this day to have to occasional live music show, although they have moved several times since.
      10. The Curse….He’s My Boy….from the Teenage Meat CD on OPM Records, and recorded at the above show…this is the only track on the CD from the above show.
      11. Peter Tangredi….Life Is A Crazy Passion….from the Demics Covers CD and the summation of what it was like here in London (and many other places here in North America) back in 1977. Peter was in Crash 80’s, Idiot Savant, Suffer Machine and more.
      12. The Demics….Heart Of The City….from a live recording at the Blue Boot 1978.
      13. The Demics….Mystery Dance….as above.
      14. The Demics….New Rose….as above. When The Demics first started, they did lots of covers, many of them of 60’s garage bands….ie Music Machine, Electric Prunes, Love and more. And the Blue Boot became the Cedar Lounge in the summer of 1978, London’s exclusive punk/new wave club. We’ll be doing a full show special on this venue to mark the 40th anniversary this summer.
      15. Uranus….Route 66….from a live recording on CFNY out of Toronto. The first new wave/alternative/whatever radio station in this part of the country.
      16. Uranus….Cruisin’… as above.
      17. Uranus….Motorbikin’…. as above. Uranus were the band of choice of the bikers around here and they did this song just for them! Uranus were also the first rock’n’roll band to play the Blue Boot, and eventually got The Demics in there and started the whole mess rollin’.
      18. The Perks….McPig….from their only 7” from 1978 on the Awes Label. Awes was a downtown recording studio and also a short lived record label.
      19. The Perks… Escape…as above. The Perks were a highschool project, recorded this and broke up.
      20. Uranus…..53 Buick….from their first self released EP, and recorded at Awes Studio.
      21. Uranus….Tommy Get Your Gun…. as above.
      22. The Demics….Cowboys Are Fags….from the NYC CD on OPM label and recorded at Awes Studio.
      23. The Demics….Factories…. as above.
      24. The Demics….Oh Well….as above. The Demics released their first EP on Ready Records out of Toronto in 1979, the Awes recordings are from 1978.
      25. The Regulators….Brainless Wonder….recorded live at the Polish Hall in 1979. The Regulators released one 7” and the Polish Hall was the site of many all ages gigs here in town.
      26. The Stoves….Can’t Slow Down….recorded live at the Cedar in 1979.
      27. NFG….Cowboy Rock….from a live recording, probably 1979 and maybe at the York Hotel.
      28. NFG….Hyjack Victim….as above. NFG became 63 Monroe, then First Date for a short time, and then back to 63 Monroe and still play to this day.
      29. The Zellots….Holocaust…..from a live recording at the Kent Hotel in Kitchener and broadcast over the airwaves of CHRW by DJ Simon Less. Simon’s real name is Peter Moore, and he recorded loads of local bands and broadcast some of these shows over the airwaves of CHRW. He went on to win a Grammy a year or so back, for his work restoring some Dylan recordings.
      30. The Zellots….Object….as above. The Zellots story is told in an issue of Mongrel Zine out of Vancouver, and they were the local band that coulda and shoulda, but somehow didn’t!

       

      Thanx for all the phone calls, texts, emails, FB messages and Heys on this show as it was a load of fun putting it together and playing these tunes that mean so much to me! We might just play a few more tunes from that era next week!

    • 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.
