      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.
      24. Das Clamps…..New Kind Of Fix…from their recent Shit Music For Shit People release on Dirty Water Records….Cramps tribute/worship 2 piece out of the UK.

      28. Eddie And The Hot Rods….Do Anything You Want To Do…from their 1977 Life On The Line release  and goes out to singer Barrie Masters who passed away this week. Thanks for kicking the fledgling London Ontario punk rock scene in the balls by playing for 2 nights at Fryfogles back in November 1977! 6 weeks later and London’s first punk rock combo, The Demics appeared for their first ever show at Niederman’s loft!
      29. Eddie and the Hot Rods….Quit This Town…. As above.
      30. Eddie and the Hot Rods…..Teenage Depression….from the release of the same name and also from 1977.
      31. The Inmates….Back On The Street….from their Five release and features Barrie Masters on vocals. RIP to Barrie!

      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!

      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!!!

      21. Ancient Shapes….Public Hymns….from their self titled debut from 2016.
      22. Possibly Stompin’….To It and At It… 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!!!

      Radio What Wave Playlist September 7/2020
      Started this show with our regular complement of new releases, then submerged into Canadian powerpop/new wave from the late 70’s/early 80’s for the rest of the show.
      1. Gruesomes….What Wave….from Mr Garager’s Neighbourhood LP from 1989 on OG Records.
      2. Fuzzstains….Thinking ‘bout Me….from their recent Sick Sick Sick release on Beluga and from Sweden.
      3. Bloodshot Bill….Cookout….from his latest longplayer, Get Loose Or Get Lost.
      4. Sin City…..Room 305….from their recent Sin City Or Bust release and from Spain via New Zealand.
      5.Krista D….Left  Of Me….recent release from Krista who is from Edmonton and is also a displaying visual artist/sculptor.
      6. Black Donnellys….Little Bit….local combo who just created a video of this song.
      7. TVD….Come On And Tell Me Off….local combo and this is a sampler from their upcoming release.
      8. Thunder Queens….Stereo Cat….local duo and from their only release on Yeah Right Records.
      9. Jenn Marino and the Hearts….Smoke….their latest release and there is a very cool video for this one.
      10. Muck and the Mires…One Way To Know….from the latest Rumbar compilation and from Boston.
      11. Marshmallow Overcoat….Wait For Her….their very last release as leader Timothy Gassen passed away last fall and is sadly missed by the 80’s/90’s garage band fans. The attached picture is of Marshmallow Overcoat when they played Call The Office here in London Ontario 4/11/1989.
      12. Jack Cades….Run Paulie Run….from their recent Perfect View release on Beluga Records and from the UK.
      13. Creatures of Condition…..Heartaches….from their recent release on Indy Tunz.
      14. Popular Spies….Chinatown….from a 1980 single and from Toronto. This is the start of our Canadian late 70’s/early 80’s special.
      15. Numbers….Won’t You Call…from their 1979 release, Add Up and from Toronto.
      16. Hifis….Look What You’ve Done….from a 1980 single and 2 of the members went on to form Blue Rodeo.
      17. The Shakers….California….from a1983 single and features Dave Rave on vocals/guitar and from Hamilton.
      18. Mods…. Step Out Tonight….from a 1978 release and from Toronto. Drummer David Quinton went on to work with Stiv Bators and was in a late version of the Dead Boys.
      19. Popular Mechanix….Ice Box City….from their debut long player and from Winnipeg 1980.
      20. Pointed Sticks….Destitute….from their Part of The Noise compilation that included several tracks, including this one, that were supposed to be on their ill fated Stiff Records long player.
      21. B Sides….Underground Radio Stars….from their1981 single and from Vancouver. This song could be about many of the featured acts on this episode.
      22. Metros…Don’t Like It At All….from the Vancouver Independence release from 1981.
      23. Metros….In With The Crowd….as above. Don’t know anything about Vancouver’s Metros, but these 2 songs are powerpop gems!
      24. Droogs….JKO….as above, from the Vancouver Independence release from 1981.
      25. Secret V’s…Modern Boy….from a 1980 release and features Ray Condo (listed as Radial) on the bass. Many years ago, I asked Ray what he remembered about playing the Cedar Lounge (circa 1980) and all he could remember was how scummy the upstairs rooms which housed the bands were.
      26. Modernettes….Rebel Kind….from their View From The Bottom release from 1982 and from Vancouver.
      27. Diodes….Red Rubber Ball….from their self titled longplayer and from 1977 which I believe was the first punk/new wave longplayer by a Canadian combo.
      28. Secrets….I’ll Cry Tomorrow… from their Teenage Rampage release and from Toronto 1979. 3 former Viletones and a former Diode form what should have been a combo that broke out big time.
      29. Zoom….School Girl Hitchiker….recorded in 1978 but not released until 2016 on the Ugly Pop imprint Sweet Desperation release. From Toronto and this combo pre-dates the rest of the punk/new wave explosion. It was basically a duo of John Hamilton (Diodes, Secrets and others) and Chris Haight (Viletones, Secrets and more) and they only released a 7” in the band’s lifetime.
      30. The Sharks….Get Off The Radio….from the Toronto compilation No Pedestrians that came out in 1980.
      31. Winston Hancock….Girls Girls….. as above and have no info on Winston.
      32. B Girls….B Side….from their 1979 Bomp single and from Toronto. Londoner Marcy Saddy drummed on this one, and this is one of those bands that coulda and shoulda, but it just didn’t happen. They made the move to NYC, opened for the Clash and many other big names but just couldn’t make the next career step.
      33. Maniacs and Cadillacs….Drastic Measures….from their 1980 debut long player that is supposed to be re-ished shortly. And from Toronto.
      34. The Ugly….Stranded In The Laneway….from their 1978 single and radically different from their loud, wild and somewhat violent live shows.
      35. Onits….Weekend Wrestler….1980 single and have no info on this combo. Picked this one up at Star Records many years ago.
      36. Government….Sponge…..from their 1979 release and from Toronto. One of my fave Canadian bands from this era. Most of their songs would be considered art punk and later they moved in a more funk direction before disbanding.
      37. BB Gabor….Nyet Nyet Soviet….from a 1980 release and from Toronto. This one got a lot of airplay here on CHRW back when it was released.
      38. Stoves….Can’t Slow Down….live recording from 1979 of this local combo.
      Thanx to all that took the time to tune in and listen.
      Next week is an all London Ontario show, as London Music Week runs from September 13 to 20. We’ll be playing some of the amazing local acts that are in our London Music Hall Of Fame (Demics, Sheep Look Up, Uranus, 63 Monroe and more), as well as some of the acts that are nominated for awards.
