intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Let’s begin with a wonderful woman who will be playing with a cool band this week.

1.) Now Or Then – Meg Rice
2.) Water Is Wide – Clare Byrne
3.) Kentucky – Cricket Blue
4.) Plastic Baby – SoundBrother

I saw them play a cool show a few weeks back. I think their album is coming soon. Great first song. I love how Kentucky starts so slow then rocks so hard. That’s another great song from Clare’s upcoming album Celestials. She will release it April 27 at the Rose St Gallery in Burlington. Meg plays guitar in Julia Caesar but just put out her own cool EP. OK, so last night the sunset was a blazing orange and it made me think of this song.

5.) We Are The Beautiful Sunsets – The Cush
6.) Spine – Kali Ma and the Garland of Arms – KMGA
7.) Makarov – James and the Giant Sleep
8.) Hollow – The New Siberians

Yet another great deep cut from the Siberians. It’s a good thing I’m playing that whole album for you. I played Makarov a couple of weeks ago and really liked it and wanted to play it again. What do you think? Kali Ma played a cool show at The Monkey House on Saturday. I liked it so much I went to see them again on Sunday at midingit at Radio Bean. They are amazing, and so are the Cush. OK, I’ve got a treat for you now. Let’s head over to Robot Dog Studio for an interview and live performance.

9.) Grim Ripper – Smokestack Lightning
10.) Lung Buster – Smokestack Lightning
11.) The Cave – Smokestack Lightning
12.) Humble Pie – Smokestack Lightning.

Thanks Raf Soto and the rest of the band for knocking it out of the park. Thanks Sam Mark for the lovely recording and thanks to Phoebe Zorn and Christian James for filming. Thanks also to Ryan Cohen for being such a great host for these events. OK, let’s keep rocking.

13.) Golden Goose – Cave Bees
14.) Carnage – Black Rabbit
15.) Space Odyssey – Aliendog
16.) Metalhead – Blotto

Sarge Blotto just passed away. They made such great music and had a lovely insight into life. Aliendog will be at Drink on Saturday. It’s been ages since I’ve played Carnage or Goose and thought it was about time. OK, let’s keep rocking.

17.) Don’t Look Back – ROUGH FRANCIS
18.) Monsters Are Due On Maple Street – Doom Service
19.) Liquor Store – Why Nona
20.) Untitled (4) – Adrienne Cooper Smith

I love the ripping banjo in that song. She will be at Gloom Garden on Monday. Doom and Nona will be at The Monkey House next Wednesday. Great song from Francis. OK, this next band is coming back to town tomorrow for a show at ArtsRiot.

21.) Secret Makeout Factory – And The Kids
22.) Chosen Names – Julia Caesar
23.) Slippin – Claudia Verona
24.) Icon Of Ego – Arc Iris

9.) Game Of Thrones – The Mountain Says No
10.) East Jabip – REDadmiral
11.) Doomed Convoy – Wolfhand
12.) We Tried – Clever Girls

Nice song about politics and the east and the west by Admiral. They will be at the Lamp shop tomorrow. Great song about Breaking Bad from Mountain. OK, this is the next song on the New Siberians album that I’m playing all the way through. You can find these creatures after the battle.

14.) Frosty Pink Skies – Miku Daza
15.) An Obscene Amount Of Debt – Sink or Swim

19.) Drown – Green Chapel
20.) Knight Ov Swords – The Contrarian

22.) Resurrection – Death World Wide

I want to send that out to my buddy John Snow. Vultures were so great and that lovely character did such a huge job holding the door. Casey Rae is still great. The Chapel song is for the Greyjoys. OK, let’s keep rocking.

23.) Wolf Bait – Villanelles
24.) Death Of Me – Aaron Flinn
25.) So Good (I Could Die) – J Bengoy
26.) Hungry Like The Wolf – Joe Adler and the Rangers Of Danger

That’s such a fun rocking version of the song and it was recorded live at Nectar’s. I figured I had to toss in a few songs about death. Great song about wolves from Villanelles. I’m probably running late but have a few more for you.

27.) Direwolf – Blues for Breakfast, the band
28.) King Vice – Binger
29.) Stardust For Dessert – David Rosane & The Zookeepers

10.) In The Garden – The New Siberians

Decker and Troy Millette at The Skinny Pancake March 28, 2019   Leave a comment

Troy Millette

I had a great time seeing music Thursday at The Skinny Pancake. My friends were running on their own timeline so I got going a little early and took the lovely walk down to the waterfront. I got in and settled and almost finished eating when Tony Gallucci from WBKM stopped in and hung our banner behind the stage. Mike Luoma showed up shortly after that and Troy Millette Music began to play. He opened with a cover of I’m on Fire and tossed a little Dancing In The Dark into the middle. He followed with a couple of originals. Magnolias was just gorgeous and I’m really beginning to like his new song about how something in your arms feels like home. He returned to Bruce for Atlantic City but tossed in some Fast Car and something about walking 1,000 miles for you, ’cause in this day and age, he would totally do that. He played a song about not being sure if he wanted to fix this and make it right and kept the theme going with Anna Marie. He lit me up with his version of Ghosts (Of What We Used To Be) then closed with a fun medley. It began with something about wanting it that way, went into something about a blank space. He walked on water for a while then ended by bringing out our inner Whitney for Dance With Somebody. He always plays fun shows and I love when I get to hear him play.

In the past few months Mike has been doing a lot of music programming at WBKM.ORG and has turned me on to a lot of cool music. He invented a series called Virtual In Studio where artists can film themselves playing stripped down versions of their songs. decker. was the first artist to sign on and came to town, which is why I skipped my usual Thursday night show. I had listened to his song The Matador a couple of times but wasn’t entirely certain what to expect.

The set break was short then Decker took the stage with a microphone, and acoustic guitar, a stomp box gadget for one foot and a tambourine for the other. A series of effects pedals gave the songs a lush sound. He opened with a song called Burning Grass that he said was a tribute to Tom Petty. He chatted between songs and took the subjects to deep thoughtful places that kept the audience captivated. He sang a song called The Garden that was about being in favor of all of humanity that really lit up my soul. He sang a song called Holy Ghost that sounded like cruising on an Arizona highway listening to Chuck Berry while on LSD. He followed with cool songs about a State Trooper and The Phantom. He played a gorgeous song about finding a dead deer in the Arizona desert and praying over its carcass. It’s called Smudge and is quickly becoming a favorite. He hit home with a song called The Saint which was about spending time with his grandmother in hospice. I went through that with my mother just about a year ago. Sometimes, it’s nice to know we all go through the wonderful and terrible parts of life together. He followed with a song called Awake that is both staggeringly positive and a really cool song. Usually, songs like that get a little sappy musically, but his version is strong.

He took a quick break and a couple of us stepped out for a little air. I chatted with Troy for a bit then we went back in. Decker was sitting in a chair in front of the audience playing and singing with no microphone. Rats, I should have gone in sooner. I hate making unforced errors. I think I missed the song Mexico but caught most of The Matador. He closed the night with a song about JFK called Patsy.

It’s really hard to describe just how beautiful the whole show was. I was phenomenally impressed. I’d go see him again anytime.

Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM.ORG will run from 9-11pm Eastern time Thursday March 21. You can stream it from the website or here: WBKM It will go as follows.

Song before: Take The Skinheads Bowling – Camper Van Beethoven

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Let’s begin tonight with a guy who just wants to get to the other side of the lake.

1.) Wally Rides The Ferry – Zoot Wilson
2.) Every Time I Hear That Mellow Saxophone – Big Joe Burrell
3.) That’s That Is Is – Ninja Custodian
4.) Reagan – The Wards

As a kid I dove right into the punk scene that was blossoming. I saw the Wards many times. I used to work with Doug McAllister and one day he said I should come check out his band. Ninja were one of the best I’ve ever seen. I love walking by the statue of Joe on the top block of Church st. He’s an absolute legend and worthy of the statue. Zoot was a blues guy who could rip it up on guitar, and wrote some fun songs. OK, back in the ’80’s a Nu Wave scene evolved out of the punk scene and this band straddled that line.

5.) Almost Human – Pinhead
6.) Green Apple Girl – Dave Jarvis Band
7.) Lizard – Construction Joe
8.) Spiral – Strung Out.

As the ’80’s gave way to the ’90’s Pinhead played some amazing shows. We rocked hard with quirky songs like Apple and had a funky rocking pop thing going with bands like Joe and Strung. At that time, an organization called Good Citizen began to promote the heck out of our town. They released a few compilation albums including one of Burlington bands covering other Burlington bands. Here’s a band covering a band called Ken Sleeps Naked.

9.) It Is – Be That Way
10.) 2000 – The Pants
11.) Pseudo – Peg Tassey MUSIC
12.) Tastes Like Nothing – Zola Turn
13.) Imaginary – Envy

As the ’90’s went on Envy came out with this huge melodic rock sound that sent repercussions through our town that you can still hear playing out in bands today. Zola played a ton of great shows and wrote many great songs. The pants inspired countless musicians, and while most of their songs had a quirky edge, they really soar on 2000. Charlie Messing recently said he was in Be That Way and they wanted to overdub a guitar solo but didn’t have time or money and used the sound of paper ripping for the solo. Charlie can shred. OK, here’s another epic song from the ’90’s

14.) All My Life – Wide Wail
15.) Happy Again – The New Siberians
16.) Trading Bullets – Fire The Cannons
17.) The Day I Met You – Dirtminers
18.) The Drone – The Cush

As the ’90’s gave way to the ’00’s bands like Wide Wail went away and I had to find new bands to rock out to. Cannons filled that void for a couple of years until the Siberians entered the scene. I remember seeing Dritminers at Higher Ground a couple of times and having fun. The ’00’s were fulled with the lovely sounds of The Cush. We are so lucky they chose Burlington as the place to try something new. Somewhere in the ’00’s I fist found love for this band.

19.) Too Drunk – Dirty Blondes
20.) Terrarium – Vedora
21.) Edible – SWALE
22.) Already In It – Blue Button

In the early ’10’s Blue Button became a punk supergroup and rocked us hard. Swale began playing killer shows and taught us things we otherwise would not have known. Vedora rocked us hard for several years before they faded away. They are the first entry on my rock blog from 2012. Swale were the second and Button the third. This next band evolved out of a couple of local bands and are still playing great rock shows.

23.) A Song About The Ocean – Dino Bravo VT
24.) Falter – Julia Caesar
25.) Heavy – Clever Girls
26.) By Design – The Nancy Druids

Sean Toohey and Ann Mindell used to be in Envy and formed the Druids a couple of years ago. Clever are one of the most amazing bands in town now. Same for Julia. This next band have been playing for a few years and recently put out this great album. I want to dedicate this to everyone who is having a rough year.

27.) The Bad Year – Carraway
28.) We’re Gonna Fall – The Smittens
29.) Leave Me Low – Jason Halogen
30.) Happy Funeral Song – John Townsend

It was nice to run into John on Sunday. He’s back from Seattle with a cool album and another new song. I picked that one to set up the Fish and Tragically hip songs coming up. I’m sure I’ll be playing more soon. Jason used to be in a band called The Halogens and just released that new song. The Smittens began playing in the ’90’s but just put out a great new album so I saved them for the end. Well, I’ll be off next week for a WBKM event but will be back the week after and the week after.

outro

Songs after
Blind To The Beautiful – Fish
Save The Planet – The Tragically Hip
Rainbow In The Dark – Liliac
Ever Reach – analog missionary
Moving – Kate Bush
I Shouted – Bee Bee Sea
Today Your Love Tomorrow The World – The Ramones
Without You I’m Nothing – Ace Frehley
The Revenge Of Vera Gemini – Blue Oyster Cult
I Shouted II – Bee Bee Sea
Icon Of Ego – Arc Iris
The Surprising – Deep Purple

Song Before: Should I Stay Or Should I Go – The Clash

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I’ve been catching up a little on the large amount of music that has been released recently. Actually, this has been out for a while and I finally discovered it. Let’s begin with a woman with a strong voice and a nice sense of how to tell a story.

1.) Since You Asked – Kristina Stykos Music
2.) A Stranger Time – Chazzy Lake
3.) Child – Clare Byrne
4.) Life Of Defiance – Kelly Ravin Music

Kelly is a local treasure and just put out a sweet new album called Ditches. I’m sure we’ll hear a lot more from him soon. Clare is working on a new album, so I thought I’d play one of her older songs. Chazzy will be at ArtsRiot tomorrow. Great song from Kristine. OK, here is the next song on the New Siberians album.

5.) Colorblind – The New Siberians
6.) Made Of Stars – Milton Busker and the Grim Work
7.) Albany Gives Me The Creeps – Austiin
8.) A Little Too Long – Adam Rabin
9.) Trouble – Julia Beerworth

Julia and a couple of friends will be at the Courtyard Marriott on Saturday. More on that later. Cool song from Adam from a couple of years ago. That’s Austin from The Mountain Carol from his solo album about the joys of Albany. Lovely songs from Milton and the Siberians. I’m sure you will recognize the beginning of this song, before it takes a turn into the imperialist nature of our country.

10.) United States – The Wards
11.) The Space Between – The Nancy Druids
12.) Signal Loss – Zeus Springsteen
13.) Panic – Miku Daza
14.) The Movie – Ninja Custodian

That’s a classic from the ’80’s, as was the Wards song that began the set. The rest are fairly new cool songs. I’m still reeling from the Druids show this weekend at Radio Bean and the Zeus show last week at Higher Ground. I’m aching to catch up with Miku again!!!! OK, this is a song about how humanity is far superior to mechanical devices.

15.) Only Human – The Brand New Luddites
16.) Boogie In “The Depths – Comrade Nixon
17.) Nothing New – The Backseat Bullets
18.) Let Me know – Why Nona
19.) Chained Arms – Batter

Someone was just looking for new music on the DIY Burlington Facebook page. I got the last three bands from that list. Batter are a Burlington band that I need to find out about. Why Nona have been playing around for a while. Bullets are from Saratoga but come to visit now and then. That’s new from Comrade, who are at SideBar tonight. Great song from the Luddites. OK, here’s something new and cool.

20.) Girl Of Confusion – Severinsen (with Colin Nicholas Clary)
21.) Untitled #3 – Adrienne Cooper Smith
22.) Pith Ant Point – I Love You!
23.) Hollywood – Humble Hero

Great rocker from our local heroes. Love will be at Radio Bean Saturday night at an anti-fascist bash with a bunch of other cool people and bands. Gotta love rock for a good cause. That’s a heavy rocking banjo song from Adrienne that we recorded at Robot Dog Studio last December. OK, let’s keep rocking.

24.) Automatic Sweetheart – Hammydown
25.) Creatures – Hayley Jane and the Primates
26.) Felon – SWALE
27.) My Heart – Francesca Blanchard

Francesca is at ArtsRiot tomorrow. Swale played a beautiful show there over the weekend. Haley and the band will be at a new Burlington venue called Orlando’s tomorrow. Hammy are so great. OK, these next two artists will be at the Marriott with Julia on Saturday.

28.) Man On The Side – Josh Glass
29.) Raise Your Hand – Aaron Flinn
30.) 45 – Clever Girls
31.) CO2 You Later – The Tsunamibots

Our robot overlords have taken over, but it’s OK, we’ve had a good run. Clever will be at Club Metronome on Saturday. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Tonight’s local music radio show on WBKM.ORG will run from 9-11pm Eastern time Thursday March 1. You can stream it from the website or here: WBKM It will go as follows.

Song before: Countdown – Rush

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. Let’s begin tonight with a cool artist who has been playing in a cool band who just released a solo album.

1.) Better Off Alone – Meg Rice
2.) My Fear Of Losing You – Milton Busker
3.) Your Funeral – Zeus Springsteen
4.) 1965 – The New Siberians

That’s the next song on the Siberians great eponymous first album. Zeus played a killer show Monday at Higher Ground. Great song from Milton and it’s nice to see Meg step out. OK, this next band are from Rhode Island and they played Burlington once in the ’90’s and they have still stuck with me.

5.) We’re The Loops – The Mockingbirds
6.) Accidental Graveyard – The Dead Shakers
7.) Safe To Say – SWALE
8.) Mr Reed – Seth Yacovone Band

Seth and the band will be at the Old Post in South Burlington on Saturday. Swale will be at ArtsRiot on Saturday. The Shakers will be at Junktiques Collective on Saturday. If you like all three songs, you will have a tough choice to make. This next band will be at Radio Bean on Sunday, yea.

9.) The Space Between – The Nancy Druids
10.) Right Bright Lord – The Mountain Says No
11.) Waste Of Time – Preece
12.) If You Die – The Wards
13.) Jurassic Bark – Doom Service

That is on the Live From Robot Dog Studio Volume 2 that just came out. I really want to thank Ray Padgett from County Tracks for writing such a nice story about my struggle with my mother’s death last year, and the way that music helped me get through it. That was very nice. The Wards rocked us in the ’80’s and will continue rocking us later this evening. Great songs from Preece and Mountain. Both can be obtained for free on the Live From Robot Dog Studio Volume 2 album. I’m so psyched to see the Druids on Sunday. OK, It’s time to talk about a naughty word that apparently is fine to say in public by a fine moral leader like the President Of The United States. Wow, our decency standards as a nation are just gone now, as proven by the moral tolerance of the President’s speech by his “moral” base.

14.) Bullshit – Blue Button
15.) There’s A Problem – Mr. Doubtfire
16.) Fear The Government – The Wards
17.) Weapon Factory take 4 – The Wards
18.) Bernie Is A Punk – BERN UNIT
19.) Feel The Bern – Violint Wednesday

That song is such a lovely look at life when Bernie was Mayor of Burlington. He would make a decent President. Nice reworking of the Ramones song by the band from California. I though a double shot of Wards would be nice. I don’t think we need to fear the government but we do need to elect decent caring people, which we often do not do for odd reasons. Nice rockers from Doubtfire and Button. OK, here’s a brand new punk song.

20.) A Song About Riding Bikes Adrienne Cooper Smith
21.) Awake To Steak – Black Hairy Tongue
22.) Six O’ Clock – The Wards
23.) Decide – Dave Jarvis Band
24.) Prime – Black Rabbit

Great rocker from Rabbit. That’s not even on one of their albums yet. Classic ’90’s rocker from Dave. Nice punk from the ’80’s with the Wards. BHT straddled that line between the ’80’s and ’90’s. Adrienne is out rocking us today. This next band is doing the same.

25.) This Town – Suburban Samurai
26.) An Obscene Amount Of Debt – Sink or Swim
27.) United States – The Wards
28.) We Need Bigger Knives – As We Were
29.) Bury Me Easy – Real Talk

Cool song from their new album. Were played around in the early 2010’s. American Imperialism was in full force in the ’80’s as the Wards so nicely point out. Sink and Suburban are out and about rocking us hard. This next band is doing the same.

30.) Warmonger – Smokestack Lightning
31.) Gettin’ High – Heavy Plains
32.) Bit O Honey – Happy Spangler
33.) Magic In This Mystery – Robin Gottfried Band

Robin and his band will be at On Tap Bar & Grill on Saturday. Fun song from Spangler. Great rockers from Heavy and Smokestack. Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
