      18. James Brown…..played 3 different intros to JB shows, 2 from the early 60’s and one from 1980, all done by Danny Ray who just passed away. Danny was not only JB’s MC since 1960, he was also the guy who came out with the cape at the end of the show. A crucial job that drove the audience into a frenzy! Danny could have easily been one of the greatest professional wrestling managers ever he was so good at his job.

      25. Wilko Johnson….Think….from his 1984 Pull The Cover release on Skydog. Wilko was the original guitar slinger in Dr Feelgood. Instantly recognizable by the staccato bursts of noise he created with his unique method of finger picking.  There’s a very nice documentary about Wilko that came out after he beat inoperable cancer. It’s captivating and inspiring.

      27. The Dice…Hostage Crisis….from an early 80’s demo. A trio that used to work the punk rock circuit and we saw them a couple times at the Cedar Lounge. We’ve had drummer Hayden Vialva live onair a couple times over the years.
      28. Dukes Of Rhythm….Night Train…..from a compilation called Too Hot To Handle on the Flyright label. If anyone out there has any of the volumes of this series (apparently Flyright issued a number of late 50’s R’n’B compilations in the late 70’s/early 80’s) I’m willing to trade for them.
      29. Death….Keep A Knockin’…from their 2009 For The Whole World To See release. 3 brothers from the Detroit area that did some recording in 1975 that sounds very proto punk.
      30. Basement 5….Riot….from their 1965-1980 release and from the UK. Produced by Martin Hannett, who also worked with Joy Division, A Certain Ratio, New Order etc….Basement 5 is a radical departure from the bands listed.
      31. Betty Davis….If I’m In Luck I Might Get Picked Up….from her 1973 self titled release and way ahead of the curve. Briefly married to Miles Davis, Betty helped change his music and did some of the wildest shows of her time.
      32. The Supremes….Reflections….from a compilation called Cloud 9 and goes out to Mary Wilson who recently passed away.
      33. The Supremes…. Stop In The Name Of Love….from a compilation called Super Girls.
      34. Bo Diddley…Congo….from his 1961 Bo Diddley Is A Lover release.
      35. Jackie Mittoo….Juice Box….from The Keyboard King of Studio One release on Soul Jazz Records. Jackie was born in Jamaica, became one of the top keyboard players in the country, immigrated to Toronto in the late 60’s and stirred up the Jamaican, soul and R’n’B scenes there.
      36. Wayne McGhie….Fire….from the 1970 self titled release and another former Jamaican living in Toronto.


      Big Thanx to all that tuned in to listen, commented, emailed, texted, etc….That’s what keeps us going. Next week just over half the show will be black music to commemorate this being Black History Month.

    • November 16, 2020 7:01 PM CST
    • 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… 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.

      1. Gruesomes….What Wave….from Mr Garager’s Neighbourhood from 1989 on OG Records.
      2. Garry Jackson….The Orange….brand new single from this accomplished song writer who has been based out of Nashville in the past, travelled the world making music and now lives in smalltown Ontario.
      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…
      8. The Dundrells…Nothing On TV….1986 7”, were based out of Toronto and Peter Hudson played guitar in this combo.
      9. Muck and the Mires….Don’t Start Running Away…from their brand new Greetings From Muckingham Palace and from Boston.
      10. Judys….Another Goddamn Man… from their brand new More release and based out of Vancouver. Former Londoner Pete Feend plays basin this and several other bands.
      11.  Merinuks….King Merinuk…from their brand new release and from Hamilton Ontario. They are of course referring to Darren Merinuk, the Winnipeg based artist who has graced the covers of at least 4 issues of What Wave zine and done countless records, CD and cassette covers over the years.
      12. Angry Dragons….Girlfriend…from their 2009 EP and from Winnipeg, Darren did the cover art for this one.

      14. Rockdoras…The Sinister Urge….from the Winnipeg Riot compilation that came out in Dionysus from 2005. Darren compiled this one and supplied the art. It’s a taste of Darren’s Winnipeg.
      15. Real Kids…Now You Now…from the Roots Of Power Pop release on Bomp Records from 1996 and again, Darren did the cover art.
      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.
      24. The Unknowns…Cool…from a cassette compilation called Surf Party from 1988 and from Vancouver.
      25. Thing From Outer Space…Mai Tai….their latest and from London Ontario.
      26. UIC….Superstar….from their brand new FM Hill release. On next week’s show, November 16, we’ll be doing a UIC special as they have a big show coming up on November 21 at the Horseshoe. Check the UIC FB page for all the details.
      27. Shark Graffiti…Jungle Of Rock’n’Roll….from their debut cassette from 1988 and they played many shows with UIC. SG were based in Whitby Ontario.
      28. Legend Killers…Rattlesnake Beer….from a 1991 cassette (possibly a promo only thing) and they were from London Ontario and played with UIC many times.
      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.
