      23. Real Kids….Everyday Is A Saturday….from their Outta Place release from 1982.
      24. Catl…Working Man’s Blues….from their With The Lord For Cowards You Will Find No Place. 2 piece combo that plays Call The Office once in awhile and this is often the closing number.
      25. Deja Voodoo….16 Tons…..from their debut longplayer on their OG Records. Two piece, 4 string guitar, drums with no cymbals and the inventors of their self titled sludgeabilly genre. This duo crossed Canada many a time via Greyhound bus, after the Edsel packed it in. And coincidentally, singer/guitar played Gerard, announced his retirement right around the time this song was playing onair….
      26. Cleo Page….California Prison Farm….from a compilation called Going To California on the JSP label. Not a lot known about this elusive artist, but all of his records are on my want list if anyone can help out.

      2. The Action….TV’s On The Blink….from the Slashing White Hot release on Rave Records. This is the Ottawa punk combo, first in the city and one of the first in Canada. One of the Fenton Brothers from the band is not doing well, this goes out to him.

      4. DOA….Rip This Joint…from the 1978 release on Sudden Death Records.

      23. The Milkshakes….Shimmy Shake….from the After School Session release from 1983 and again, Billy Childish is in this combo. This was the first release I picked up by The Milkshakes 35 years ago….immediately went searching for more!
      24. The Milkshakes….I Can Tell… as above.
      25. The Secrets….All The Words…from the Teenage Rampage release on OPM Records. Toronto combo formed in 1978 as members of The Viletones deserted the singer and formed a brand new combo with the addition of a Diode. Great fratrock combo that should have gone on to big things.
      26. The Viletones….Sign Of The Times….from the What It Feels Like To Kill release from the mid 80’s.
      27. The Screwed….Last Pogo….from the Green Haired Girl release and features Steve Koch on guitar, as well, he’s on the track prior and after this one.
      28. The Demics….I Love You….live recording from Toronto just after the full length was release.

      35. Fine Print….Tonight…from their self titled release and from London. One of those bands that wasn’t around anywhere near long enough.

      18. Vertical Pillows….I Am The One….from the Tremor compilation Folk Songs From The Twilight Zone on Tremor Records. Rob Tyner (MC5) was helping out this all female combo behind the scenes and even appeared on stage with them a few times.

      1. The Underground Divas….This Train Is Running Out Of Faith…From Montreal and certainly have their ear on the ground as to what’s happening in this crazy world we all live in.
      2. DOA….Woke Up Screaming….from the recent 1978 release and originally came out in 1978 as a 7”.
      3. Sheep Look Up….Civil Disobedience….from Slippery’s Club Hits, the cassette that came with What Wave zine 24. Originally released as a cassette circa 1983 and blows my mind as much then as now.
      4. The Zellots….Soldiers…..also from Slippery’s Club Hits and originally recorded back in about 1981 at EMAC.
      5. 63 Monroe…..Drums Beat in the Background….from the recent Faded Glory release. London’s longest running glam/punk/whatever combo and they still play out every now and again.
      6. The Rizdales….One More Beer….from their most recent, Lucky Enough release and regulars at the Richmond Tavern here in London.
      7. Dashboard Rattle….Little Miss Selfie Taker….from their recent self titled debut and also from London Ontario.
      8. Genya Ravan….Don’t Go Into The Bathroom….from her recent Icon release and a true story if you ever tried to go to the washroom when at CBGBs. Genya’s been around since the early 60’s and one of her claims to fame is producing the first Dead Boys album.
      9. Hiroshima Hearts….Wreckage….their latest and they have a gig coming up next weekend at the Ribfest here in London.
      10. O Lendario Chucrobillyman….Midnight Jungle….from his Man Monkey release and he’s a one man band from Brazil. And had a show at Duggan’s the night of this broadcast.
      11. Weird Omen….A Place I Want To Know….from their recent Surrealistic Feast on Dirty Water Records and goes out to Lionel Haug.
      12. Electric Cows….Frenzy….from the recent Wheatfield Fuzz release and from Winnipeg.
      13. Andy Butler….I’m Crushed….from his recent Garage Heartbreak release and yep, it’s the same guy from the Legendary 905s out of Brampton.
      14. Long Day Journey…..Spreads Of The Psychedelic Sandwich…..from a recent 7” from this Hamiltonian who is constantly releasing and recording.
      15. Bill Haley and the Comets…..13 Women….this goes out to Dick Boccelli, aka Dick Richards, the drummer for Bill from about 1953 to 1955. Dick passed away very recently at the ripe old age of 95 and probably the last of the Comets from that era. And 13 Women is also my fave Bill Haley track, check out the absolute Killer version of this track by Sweden’s  Renegades from 1966!
      16. LeRoi Brothers…..Ballad Of A Juvenile Delinquent….from their 1983 Check This Action release. Had to toss this one in after Bill Haley as his fans were considered JD’s back in the band’s early days.
      17. Positively Stompin’….Ain’t I’m A Dog…..from the Cat O Nine Tales cassette that came with What Wave zine 21 from 1992. The boys in Stompin’ found this track on the above LeRoi Brothers release and loved it so much they had to record it.
      18. LeRoi Brothers….Check This Action….from the album of the same name and a song that sums up being a LeRoi.
      19. David Clayton Thomas…..Brainwashed….Came out as a single back in 1966 and features Freddy Keeler on guitar. Freddy passed away recently and was one of a few shit hot guitar players out of Toronto! A master of the telecaster!
      20. David Clayton Thomas….Boom Boom…this version is from DCT’s solo LP, and not the earlier recorded version which features an even better guitar solo by Freddy. DCT calls out Freddy to take the solo on the version we played.
      21. Betty Harris….12 Red Roses….from New Orleans Funk Volume 2 on Soul Jazz Records and originally from 1968.
      22. Artwoods….Can You Hear Me….from the Art Gallery release on Repertoire Records and originally from 1966. This track features a young Jon Lord on keys, eventually to find fame in Deep Purple. Art Woods,  from whom this band takes its name is the brother of Faces/Birds/Stones guitarist Ron Wood.
      23. The Touch….You’re The One….from the brand new Lost and Found release. The Touch were a late 70’s/early 80’s UK mod/pop combo who released one album back then and ended up breaking up. Due to its rarity, the band decided to get back together and this recording is a result of that. Reunion show coming up in August!
      24. The Touch….Grey Day… above.
      25. The Meters….Ease Back…..from a Greatest Hits comp and goes out to keyboardist Art Neville who passed away earlier this week. Art started his career in the 50’s and remained a New Orleans resident up to the end.
      26. The Meters…Chicken Strut….as above and love the chicken yells on this one!
      27. The Meters….They’d All Ask’d For You…. As above. All 3 tracks from the late 70’s/early 80’s and Art went from here to the Neville Brothers.
      28. The Fleshtones…..You’re Tearing Me Apart….from the Hitsburg Revisited release and a tune they always play live in Hamilton…and The Fleshtones are in Hamilton tonite at This Ain’t Hollywood and tomorrow at the Horseshoe in Toronto.
      29. The Fleshtones….Remember The Ramones….from the Wheel Of Talent release and another live fave.
      30. The Fleshtones….5 New Fleshtones…..from the Angry Years release.
      31. The Fleshtones….Girl From Baltimore….from the Up Front release from 1980. The Fleshtones have been around since 1976, with 2 original members, drummer Bill joined shortly after the band formed and bassist Ken Fox has been with the band close to 30 years. And they’ve still got more energy than pretty much any band out there! My fave live band!
      32. The Fleshtones….Watch This….from the Angry Years release.
      33. The Fleshtones…..The Dreg….from the Roman Gods release.
      34. The Fleshtones….I’ve Gotta Change My Life….as above and had to fade this as we ran outta time.


      Big Thanx to all who tuned in, called in, emailed, messaged and the others that said HEY!

    • Dave , well , focus on your health , hoss. You gotta lotta rockin' to do. Yes , it was very busy , here , until.....NOW. I don't have plans to see anybody , tho' Stiff Little Fingers and The Avengers are in October. I failed to mention , I saw The Mentally Ill in a cool dive bar. Rediscovered Power Pop zealot , Julian Leal was on the bill , too , but , I had to haul ass out of there to try to make it to Daddy Longlegs' show , just up the street. I missed them , but , we went out for Mexican food , anyway.

      Horton's doing two shows , but one is in the suburbs , inaccessible by train. Th eothe rone is later , He's playing at The City Winery , a place with dinner seating.  Perfect for stretching your neck to see the back of your neighbors' head. But , when he played there last , with Robert Gordon (Who did "Heart Full of Soul"and "Move it" by , guys......CLIFF !!!),they took thetables and chairs out .. We can hope.
