      This one goes out to Ted Treibner, Possibly Stompin’, Positively Stompin’, UIC and all around good guy!!RIP

       

      1. Genya Ravan…… Pump It Up….from her latest, Icon, and a legend! Genya’s been in this game longer than most have been around, Goldie and the Gingerbreads, 10 Wheel Drive and her most known job as producer of the first Dead Boys LP. A true Icon in this biz!!
      2. Hook Up….Burnin’…from the soon to be released download of the Call Up The Devil release and for some reason, the CD player locked up on this one….got her fixed in the background, thanx to our Program Director Zahra! And it wouldn’t be a Radio WW without some screwups!
      3. The Creation….Sylvette…from the Action Painting re-ish on Numero Group. All you could want from The Creation in a double CD and this track is from 1966.
      4. The Touch…Listen To Me….from the recent Lost and Found release and this one has been really growing on me! UK combo that recently got back together for a highly successful reunion in the UK.
      5. The Dig….Mr Nobody….7” from 1985 that features Ed Ackerson who passed away way too young. Ed helped start Susstones Records based out of Minneapolis, a label I have many records from. And Ed was a studio guy, working with everyone from The Replacements, Soul Asylum and so many others!
      6. Graham Bond Organization….Long Tall Shorty…from a compilation called History Of The British Blues on Sire Records. This one, and the next 3 songs go out to Ginger Baker, drummer extraordinaire, and raving looney! This is a 1964 recording and also features Jack Bruce on the bass, whom Ginger would join in Cream.
      7. Graham Bond Organization….Wade In The Water….from Live At Klooks Kleek and recorded back in 1964.
      8. Cream….Politician….from the studio Wheels On Fire album and timely as Monday is election day here in Canada….don’t forget to vote on Monday!
      9. Cream…..Dance The Night Away….from the Disreali Gears LP and the first LP I bought by Cream so many years ago! Way back in 1968 these cats introduced me to the blues and opened my eyes and ears up to a whole other world of music I never knew existed! And I should thank CHUM FM for playing full albums on air back then!
      10. Jeremie Albino…..Last Night….from his Hard Time release. Picked this song as it was last night we learned about Teddy T’s passing.
      11. Andre Bisson….I Got The Right….from his 2017 Break release and Andre is coming to London Music Club on Sat Oct 26th. We caught his show last time, and were quite impressed. The 3 piece horn section really got things rocking!
      12. Occasional Angels….That’s What It Takes…from the Angels In Exile release and from Ottawa.
      13. Dashboard Rattle….Fla Blues…from their self titled debut and from right here in London Ontario!
      14. Dany Laj and the Looks….Annie….from the brand new Everything New Is New Again release on Yeah Right Records and T66. Montreal powerpoppers that are constantly touring North America and always a fun live show!
      15. Sorels….She’s In The Gang….Winnipeg combo that are tougher than you’ll ever be! Coupla Angry Dragons getting together to rip through some rough and tumble 60’s girl group sounds.
      16. The Smoggers….Tonight….from their very recent 7” on Lost In Tyme Records out of Greece.
      17. Drivin’ Beats….Radiation Baby….demo dedicated to a friend of the band that is going through cancer treatment…..and this whole show is dedicated to all the warriors, survivors and support people behind the scenes!!!
      18. Running From Daylight….Deadman’s Crossing….from their 7” released earlier this year, and RFD have a brand new split 7” with Doghouse Rose that is just out. You can catch both of these bands at Call The Office this Sunday eve.
      19. Nervousmen…..Stride Adjustment….from their Vexatious release and they are playing Saturday at Call The Office, along with….
      20. Teenanger….Singles Don’t Sell….from the album of the same name and so true! And they’ll be playing with….
      21. Ancient Shapes….Public Hymns….from their self titled debut from 2016.
      22. Possibly Stompin’….To It and At It…..live recording from the Brunswick Hotel from 5/30/1990. This (as well as the rest of the show) goes out to Ted Triebner who passed away yesterday. This trio started out as a tribute to Stompin’ Tom Connors and took on a life of its own. Murray Heywood does an excellent trib to Ted on Facebook in which he explains how this little group started and some of the many triumphs they had.
      23. Positively Stompin’….Ain’t I’m A Dog….from a compilation called Cat’O’Nine Tails that came with What Wave zine 21. Ted gave this old Ronnie Self tune a whole new life! Note the slight name change of the band, as by this time they were literally positively stompin’!
      24. Positively Stompin’….Man In Black….from their 1994 Junk Drawer release. Too rockin’ for country and too country for the rockers as the band was ahead of its time. These guys shoulda been big!! And obviously this song is all about Ted!
      25. Positively Stompin’….Nashville Dreamin’….also from Junk Drawer and seem to remember a video for this one.
      26. UIC….Our Garage….from the release of the same name and from 1986. Vividly remember the first time we saw UIC….Fred was wearing these black rubber boots with the red at the top and bottom like many of us wore as kids. And he was wearing a green farmer type work outfit, all the while leaning and crawling over the monitors and ripping noises out of his guitar. Other side was Ted looking oh so cool with his thick burns, tearing up his guitar. There’s a Reg Quinton pic of the band looking like this on the UIC FB page. So priceless to see what you remembered was accurate as UIC made such an impression on us upon first seeing/hearing them!!
      27. UIC…All Together Now….also from Our Garage and it came out in 1986. There’s been a very recent re-ish on the Like 90 imprint.
      28. UIC….Anything At All….from the 1989 Wiseman Sessions release that should have come out in 1989 and would have put these guys on the map! Yeah Right Records finally brought this to reality a couple years back.
      29. UIC….Light It And Fly….as above, and this one also appeared on the compilation It Came From Canada Volume 5 on OG Records.
      30. UIC….Green Lady…. as above and also appeared on the compilation The 8th Wonder that came out in 1991.
      31. UIC…..Crop Dustin’….from the Our Garage release and if you’re from the county, you sure know what this song is all about!!! RIP Ted Triebner!!

      Huge Thanx for all the crazy phone calls, messages, emails and Heys!!!  This will be the last Radio What Wave for awhile as I go in for major surgery on Tuesday. Thanx for all the best wishes and good lucks!!! It means a lot to me!!! And this show is not about me, it’s all about the music and its creators! And getting their sounds out to you guys!  Back once I’m recovered. Best!!!

      15. Plan 9…..Can’t Stand This Love Goodbye…..from the Frustration release on VOXX from 1982. This goes out to Eric Stumpo, guitarist/vocalist/visionary of Plan 9 who passed away last week. Plan 9 made several visits to London, and Eric was always a pleasure to talk with.
      16. Plan 9…I Like Girls….from the Dealing With The Dead release on Midnight Records from 1984.
      17. Plan 9….Hat Comes First….from the Sea Hunt release and this one, as well as a few of their other releases, were available in Canada.

      21. Curlettes….Waitin’…..another Twang 7” as Twang released loads of records back in the late 80’s/early 90’s.
      22. Pandoras…..That’s Your Way Out….from their Stop Pretending release on Rhino from 1986. Kim Shattuck (who went on to fame in The Muffs) played bass in this band for a few years. Their first appearance here in London had Kim in the band…RIP to Kim Shattuck.
      23. Pandoras….You Don’t Satisfy….It was 4/19/1986 when The Pandoras played at Bullwinkles (formerly Kellys, later the appropriate Hard Times) and local scribe Robert Pegg had written an article for the London Free Press about The Pandoras and their novelty as an all girl combo. For some reason, loads of young women came out to see the band, and for some even odder reason, they all sat in front of the stage, where the so called dance floor was. Anybody that had been to Bullwinkles prior, would know that’s not a wise thing to do. Bullwinkles was housed in an ancient building (which still stands, but has large metal supports on its east wall to prevent collapse) which wasn’t the most sanitary. There would be the odd black sticky drip of goo that would fall from the ceiling…and if that shit got on you, good luck getting if off….LOL. Probably blood from the ghosts that haunted that relic of a building.
