Swale 016

 

Tonight’s local music radio show will run from 9-11pm June 15th and can be heard on 107.1FM or from the Facebook page of WBKM and will go as follows,

Song before: I Don’t Remember – Peter Gabriel

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s been a beautiful week of warm and hot sunny days so let’s head to the beach.

1.) Beach Song – Mr. Ray Fork
2.) A Walk On Ballard Beach – The High Breaks
3.) I Wanna Be A Lifeguard – Blotto
4.) Blue Sky – Black Rabbit
5.) Lovely Day – gneiss

It’s been so nice to have so many lovely days lately. Gneiss are at Red Square tonight. There has been lots of blue sky lately and Rabbit sing such a cool song about it. They played a great show last Friday at The Monkey House. I remember seeing Blotto a couple of times at Hunts a long time ago. Great song from the Breaks. Now that Phil has taken the Affiliates joke to Chicago, it’s time for us to embrace the Ray Fork joke. OK, let’s play the next song on Camera.

6.) Shortcuts – 1881
7.) Miranda – Ninja Custodian
8.) Voodoo Camaro – Wide Wail
9.) Windows down – Lendway

It’s the perfect time to drive around with the windows down, perhaps in a magical camero. Classic song from Ninja. I’m working my way through the set of EP’s from 1881 called Lights, Camera, and Action song by song, week by week. OK, last Saturday I joined the Friends of Jim’s Basement and saw these next four bands.

10.) Winnebago – Ellen Degenerates
11.) Goner – REDadmiral
12.) Shark – Greaseface
13.) Fruity Pebbles (Legend Of The Samurai) – Shred Flintstone
14.) Cross Country – Steven Wright

I want to thank Higher Ground for sponsoring us at WBKM and for bringing Mr Wright to the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts tomorrow, and for all of the other great music they bring to our community all the time. Great song from the New Jersey band with such a great name. Flintstone rocked hard in Jim’s basement last week. Greaseface also put on a brilliant show that night. Admiral have stripped down to more of a acoustic band and were cool last Saturday too. Ellen closed that show nicely. OK, let’s play another Burlington classic.

15.) Wally Rides The Ferry – Zoot Wilson
16.) Fly On The Wall – Zola Turn
17.) Heartbreak Baby – Villanelles
18.) Can’t Feel It – Vetica

Great song from Vetica. Heartbreak rocks hard. Same for Zola. Such a fun song from Zoot. OK, let’s go out for a ride.

19.) Freeway – Totally Submerged
20.) The Mime – Joe Adler
21.) I Am A Hatchet – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
22.) Freeway – David Rosane & The Zookeepers

Such a great song from David. It’s sad to see Phil Yates move to Chicago but at least he and the band played a blistering show at the Monkey House last Friday. I’m sure we will see him again. Joe’s been playing around lately in his new band a.m. rejoice which I seem to keep missing. It’s hard to miss Submerged since they play all around Vermont all the time. OK, let’s keep up the theme with a song about the ocean.

23.) Song About The Ocean – Dino Bravo VT
24.) Sober – Vedora
25.) In The Rain – Plan B

Plan are a classic Burlington band from the ’80’s. I love how huge that song is. I always loved it when Vedora played Sober and Matt went way off on guitar. Hmmm, song about the ocean. Hmmmm. OK, there’s not much time left so let’s keep rocking.

26.) Jackbooted Thugs (Have All The Best Drugs) – Anders Parker
27.) Something I Drew – farm
28.) Mr Reed – Seth Yacovone Band

Great rocker from Seth Yacovone and the guys. Classic song from Farm who played in the 2000’s. Great rocker from Anders. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Songs after:

Sunsets On Empire – Fish
Who Are These Gods? – Dam Kat
La Villa Strangiato (live) – RUSH
Oh You! – You’re You! – Ruckzuck
Above My Ground – Landlady
Detroit Rock City – Kiss
On And On – Michael Schenker
It’ll Be OK – Let’s Whisper
Sign Of The Gypsy Queen (live) – April Wine
Waiting For The World To End – The Depth and the Whisper
Revenge Of Vera Gemini – The Contrarian
Happy X-mas (War Is Over) – Joshua Glass Music
regular programming.

 

 

Rush at the Bell Center in Montreal June 21, 2015   Leave a comment

Rush Montreal R40 June 21 2015 picture by John M Whyte

It was the longest day of the year. It was the summer solstice. It was Father’s Day. It was RUSH in Montreal.

I woke up around 9am and met mom, dad, and Ken for lunch at 12:30. We ate and chatted for an hour then mom and dad headed off. Ken and I took the other car, and after a slight detour, I drove north. The drive up went smooth, but as we approached the border, there was a huge line of cars waiting to cross. We arrived around 3, and made it through just before 4:30. The rest of the trip into Montreal was uneventful and we quickly found parking downtown. I knew of a potential get together with Elephants of Scotland at Brutopia, but must have arrived too late. We grabbed a quick bite then headed to Centre Bell for the show.

Our floor seats towards the back, on the right side facing the stage, were fine, and we patiently waited for showtime. About 7:45 the lights went down and an animated film of the band began to play. It started with them when they were young and showed then aging and many of their logos and symbols and the way their facial hair changed over the years. There was one sign that said Montreal bring back the Expos, which got a nice cheer. As the video wound down, the screen rose and Rush charged into The Anarchist. The band was perfectly on, as always, and rocking hard. They continued on with two more from Clockwork Angels, including the title song and Headlong Flight, which had a quick and bombastic Neil Peart drum solo. After those three they went back in time for Far Cry, which had some cool fireworks going off, and jammed out The Main Monkey Business. From there, they went back in time for a killer version of One Little Victory, which Geddy said was very important to them, and featured a video of the dragon, which breathed pillars of real fire onto the back of the stage. From there, they went back in time. As the show progressed the stage slowly and continuously changed. A couple of workmen moved items in and out, making the stage look like it did on the tour for whichever album they were playing. The effect in the moment was subtle, but the effect from the beginning of the show to the end was quite tremendous. Animate followed and rocked hard. The crowd sang along with the chorus as the words flashed on the background screen. They went back in time for Roll The Bones, which had a fun video for the rap part. Several people appeared in it but the ones with the biggest cheers were Peter Dinklage and the Trailer Park Boys. Again, they went back in time. As Geddy announced Distant Early Warning, the place erupted with the loudest cheer of the night. The lights had changed from the robotic lights from the beginning part of the show to the round circle of lights that lowered and changed angles, like they did when the song was new. The old video played with the boy riding the missile. They went back one more time for a killer Subdivisions and wrapped up the 75 minute set just about 9.

Ken and I just hung out at our seats and waited and around 9:20 the lights wend down and a movie started playing on the screen. No Country For Old Hens seemed to be a bunch of outtakes from all the videos they’ve used during their shows over the years. As it wrapped up, the screen rose and Rush lit int Tom Sawyer. The place went nuts and everyone was having a great time. They followed with Red Barchetta and Alex Lifeson’s guitar took us on a high speed ride through wandering roads. From there, they went back in time. Wide lasers filled the room as they played a killer version of Spirit Of Radio. They followed with a version of Jacob’s Ladder that was just dropped from the sky. They stepped back in time again, and let the songs run long and deep as they pulled out the prelude to Cygnus X-1 Book II and let it go into most of Cygnus X-1. It was a long and joyfully adventurous ride through the essence of Rush. Neil had another bombastic drum solo and the audience was through the roof. Everyone pulled out their best singing voices for Closer To The Heart, then the band launched another epic with a beautifully long version of Xanadu. From there, they stepped back in time. Shimmering lasers filled the room as they worked their way through a chunk of 2112. They did the full Overture and Priests then went into the “Another toy will help destroy the elder race of man” part, then jammed it into the Grand Finale. Wow, that was up there with the best sets of music I’ve ever seen a band play.

The band left the stage and the screen dropped down. They went back in time, from 2112, with a video of Eugene Levy introducing this new band who were really something. These kids had even opened for Kiss. Sure, they are just a trio, and that does not a rock band make, but maybe they will add some horns in the future. That’s not exactly what he said, but pretty close. The screen raised and Rush drove into Lakeside Park with red curtain as a background and white lights illuminating the band. They dropped it into Anthem and the crowd rocked right along. Then, they went back in time. The red curtain parted to show the background of a high school gymnasium and they closed the night with What You’re Doing and Working Man. The screen came down the final time and a video showed the band heading back to the dressing room, only to be denied entry by the characters from all of their album covers.

As we headed our of the Bell Center, just about 11pm, there was a long bunched up group of people looking towards the exits but not moving at all, We found an exit near the metro that worked nicely and made it back to the car, as a light rain fell. There is a great road that goes out of downtown that will take you along the river and put you on the Champlain. Unfortunately, there was construction, and three lanes had to merge into one. It took forever to get through, but once on the highway, I thought I was all set. As we approached the bridge traffic was stopped. The Champlain was having work done and they merged three lanes of traffic into one and it took forever to get through. About 90 minutes after leaving downtown, we were finally on the other side of the bridge and beginning the long ride home. There was a wait at the US border, maybe 10 cars or so, but it went smoothly. I drove to Shelburne and dropped Ken at home. I drove back to Burlington and got in just about 3:30. Wired from the road, I hung out a bit and saw the world begin to light up at 4:15am. What a long and lovely day.

I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only WBKM.org. It had a swing at the beginning then rocked through the end.

Song before: Distant Early Warning – Rush

promo

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. Life in Burlington has seen a ton of rain and lots of sunny beautiful days, or parts of days. This is a song from the early 2000’s from a band from Rutland. This song has been playing in my head a lot lately, so now I’m going to play it for you. This is If I Go by Will on WBKM and this is Burlington’s Kind of Music.

1.) If I Go – Will
2.) Waiting For You – Swale
3.) Think I’ll Go – Great Western
4.) Precious Time – The Cush

The Cush built their first album in Texas then moved to Vermont for a few years. I saw as many shows as I could and that is such a great song. Killer song from Western. Hopefully, they have new stuff coming soon. That’s such a fun Swale song and sounded as good coming out of the Will song as I hoped. This next singer is playing this weekend in Hinesburgh at the Northern Sun Music Festival with a bass player and drummer. I bet it will rock.

5.) Scattered Birds – Aaron Flinn
6.) Einstein-Rosen Bridge – Jeremy Gilchrist
7.) The Whole – Milton Busker
8.) I Forgot – Maryse Smith

Maryse Smith is playing at Signal Kitchen tomorrow. What a great song. I have not caught up with Milton in a while, but hope to soon. Cool lyrics that make you think from Jeremy. Hopefully, I will get to see Aaron and his band really rock sometime soon. Like the first song in the set tonight, this song has been going through my head a lot lately.

9.) The Territory – Hana Zara
10.) Let It Shine – Rachel Brown
11.) Sunflower Street – David L. Jarvis
12.) In The Rain – Plan B

It’s been raining like crazy lately and was supposed to rain today. No sign of it yet, it’s really been a beautiful day. I’ve always loved that Dave song. Rachel used to unleash her killer voice in this town a lot. OK, it’s time for the next song on JV, the album I’m playing all the way through, song after song, week after week. It will be released July 27 when they play The Monkey House.

13.) Iron And Metal – The Mountain Says No
14.) Bomb – Envy
15.) Original Original – Black Rabbit
16.) Weapons Factory – The Wards

Classic song from the band that lead the punk wave in Burlington back in the ’80’s. Killer new Rabbit song! Killer classic from Envy. Sean Toohey and Ann Mindell who played in that band are in a new band called The Nancy Druids. Definitely check them out when they play Radio Bean a couple of Monday’s from now. Hmmm, Mountain. OK, let’s keep on playing some recent Burlington punk music.

17.) Planning My Funeral – Poxy
18.) Black Oil – Doom Service
19.) Asphyxia – Better Things
20.) Blue Lights – As We Were
21.) MSP2 – ROUGH FRANCIS

If you want a heavy rock band, you could not do better than Rough Francis. They are at Higher Ground tonight opening for Bad Religion. As play it fast and hard and fun and I’ve loved the couple of times I’ve seen them. Better keep writing music and playing shows and I cant’ wait to see where they go next. Doom always rock hard. I miss Poxy. This next artist used to play all the time in Burlington. She’s coming back for a visit. Will she play a show? I hope so.

22.) Vicarious – Alice Austin
22.) Sequoia II – Binger
23.) These Are Some Things – When Particles Collide
24.) Stop – REDadmirial

I’ve got to get out and see admiral. They are playing the Northern Sun Music Festival too, but I have to work on Saturday and Sunday I’m meeting Mom and Dad and Ken for a Father’s Day lunch then heading to Montreal to see Rush with Ken. Killer song from Particles who are on the road now. Go check them out! Cool song form Binger. It’s almost the Solstice and the longest day of the year. It makes me feel like this song.

25.) These Summer Nights – Sarah Blacker
26.) Don’t Cough Me Out – Slowdim
27.) Can’t Feel It – Vetica
28.) Relief – Death World Wide

Killer song from the bands new album N.E.W. Love that Vetica song. Killer song from Slowdim. I’d love someone to bring that Boston band to town. Sarah’s on the road. Check her out if she comes to your town! I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Yesterday was the 30th anniversary of the release of Misplaced Childhood, so the songs after were: Childhood’s End->White Feather (live) – Fish

After wrapping up the show, the rain came. It was a very wet walk home with shifting winds. The umbrella helped, but it was a very wet walk.

I just got back from my 49th local music radio show on internet only WBKM.ORG. I highlighted a lot of the amazing amount of music that is happening this weekend.

Song before: Freewill – RUSH

promo

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the sounds of Burlington. It’s cold and snowy the deepest part of winter. A lot of us are asking What’s in California? This is Joshua Glass on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s kind of music.

1.) What’s In California? – Josh Glass
2.) Drunk On The Moon – Satori Bob
3.) Plugging Away – Sarah Emily Blacker
4.) Leonard Cohen – Violette Ultraviolet

VU played Radio Bean last weekend. I missed them when I was at Higher Ground for Lotus Land, with my brother Ken and Elephants of Scotland and Mike Wilhide. Tomorrow at the Bean a bunch of people are playing Leonard Cohen Songs. Whatever life throws at Sarah, she keeps plugging away. Since I was on the west coast anyway, I though I’d toss in the Satori song. Tomorrow is the full moon, and there is rock at The Monkey House, and tonight Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band are playing at the Bean and Spiritual Res are playing Nectar’s, and on Saturday is The Wee Folkestra at the Bean and ROUGH FRANCIS are filming a video. So, tomorrow is Valentine’s Day. What do you consider sexy? A nice face and a nice body? For me, an alert working mind that appreciates people and art and science is sexy.

5.) Super Sexy Science Party – Wave of the Future
6.) Magenta Man – Rue Mevlana
7.) Robots Making Love – Pinhead

That was such a fun Pinhead song, and fit in well with the Wave song. I’ve seen Rue a couple of times at the Winter Is A Drag Ball at Higher Ground (both rooms), and they are playing again this year. The Dirty Blondes rocked it a couple of times, and I was impressed by Rue. Some of their music is all electronic dance beat, but some songs have lots of nice drama. Next up is the next song from Maximum Soul Power. Coincidentally, the video they are shooting on Saturday is this song.

8.) Not A Nice Guy – Rough Francis
9.) Song 6 – Nautica
10.) Epic – Laureate
11.) Tibbar Tibbar – Black Rabbit
12.) We’re Closed – Blue Button

The last four bands are playing an anti Valentine’s rock show at the Monkey House tomorrow. I will be there. Wolvings are playing too and it should really rock. If that were not enough, Elephants Of Scotland have a new album coming out soon and they are playing at Nectar’s on Monday.

13.) Home Away From Home – Elephants Of Scotland
14.) Exit Strategy – Rue Mevlana

I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we”

Lotus Land at Higher Ground February 8, 2014   1 comment

I had a good time seeing music last night. I got out of work early, took a bus to Shelburne, and had dinner with Mom, Dad and my brother Ken. After that, Ken and I headed to Higher Ground to check out Rush cover band Lotus Land. Usually, I’m not that into cover bands, but many of my friends have been raving about them, and I though it would be an easy way to drag Ken out to a show.
We arrived just after doors opened and chatted with some of Burlington’s coolest music people. We hung out with Mike Wilhide and his brother, Pat Cook, and all of the guys from Elephants of Scotland. Sadly, Rich Haskell could not be there as he was in New York celebrating the birthday of Scott Fultz by Seeing Cold Sweat.
My expectations of the show were pretty high, but I tried to not let it influence me, and just listen.
Shortly after 8, the band casually took the stage and set up. The opening guitar salvo signaled The Spirit Of Radio, and we were off. As the vocal kicked in, I was momentarily stunned. I expected them to sound close, but Chris Nelson’s voice was scarily dead on. Guitarist Bob Chartrand spiderwebbed his way through the solos and drummer Mark Dalton came as close to Neil Peart as you could hope. While the whole night lacked a little something (the fact that they weren’t Rush), it was so close that it was easy to wrap yourself in the veil of illusion and fly with it.
Much of the 2+ hour set was taken from Signals/Moving Pictures/Grace Under Pressure/Power Windows era. Songs like The Body Electric, Big Money, Analog Kid (with that great surging guitar riff) sounded great, rocked hard, and were fun to sing along with. Red Barchetta, early in the set, brought me along for the ride. The Camera Eye was enchanting from first note to last. They played the hits like Tom Sawyer and Subdivisions (though the sound guy kept not turning up the guitar microphone for the title line, it was almost there for the last one). They had the drummer do an intense solo, that I think was from A Show Of Hands. Ringing cymbals brought forth a killer YYZ. The crowning achievement of the evening was a spot on Xanadu. It was truly majestic!
They closed with a rocking Working Man, and threw in a little bit of Roundabout in the late part, but they did not make it off the stage before an encore was demanded. They saddled back up to the instruments and started Overture. They let it run through The Temples of Syrinx then morphed it into the Grand Finale, and that was that.
It was obvious that the band loved the music and loved playing it. More importantly, they had me rocking from first note to last. I’m still more excited to see bands play their own music, but if you are going to be in a cover band, this is the way to do it!

I just got back from radio show 39 on WBKM.ORG.  Last week was Thanksgiving and I had a great idea for a show.  It turned out that I had the night off, and the internet only radio station had some special programming going on.  Tonight, one week later, I did the Thanksgiving show.  I had an issue loading in more music, so I changed it up a bit to be all classic.

Song before: Brothers And Sisters – Joe Adler And The Rangers Of Danger

promo

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington.  Last week I had an idea for a Thanksgiving show.  I had the night off, so I will do it tonight.  I was thinking about the many things in my life I have to be thankful for.  I’ve got great parents and a brother.  I’ve got lots of great friends.  There’s tons of great music around all the time.  Tonight I want to choose one and highlight how thankful I feel.  I am very thankful for my brother Ken.  He’s had some challenges in life, and it’s sometimes hard to drag him out to local shows.  Since I have started my radio show, he listens often and writes me an e-mail about it after.  He really likes playing air guitar to rocking songs.  This show is dedicated to him.  Tonight we start with Alice Austin’s next song from To A Star In The Yard, this is Run My Man on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) Run My Man – Alice Austin
2.) Be Aggressive – BE AGGRESSIVE
3.) 89 – Black Rabbit
4.) Kick The Can – Cave Bees

Are you rocking yet Ken?  I sure am.  Cave Bees are back in Austin for the winter.  It was good to see them a few times.  Black Rabbit always rock!  Be Aggressive just played at Punksgiving in White River.  Up next, let’s keep rocking.

5.) Las Vegas – Ninja Custodian
6.) Bomb – Envy
7.) The Eldridge – Cameo Harlot

I hope Ken has been rocking out to those last few.  While it’s sometimes hard to get him out to local shows, We’ve been to quite a few big ones together.  The last one was the Clockwork Angels tour in Montreal.

8.) The Trees – RUSH
9.) Shout It Out Loud – KISS
10.) Iron Maiden – Iron Maiden
11.) Hey You – Pink Floyd

I’ve seen Floyd twice without Roger, and Roger three times solo, but never together.  I put Hey You in, because for two years our parents got us tickets to see a full show Pink Floyd cover band at the Flynn Theater.  They were pretty fun shows and it was good to see them with Ken.  Last night at Nectar’s there was a Floyd tribute band called Dark Side Of The Mountain.  Matt Burr, Bob Wagner and the rest of the band were pretty excellent.  They will be there for the nest two Wednesdays.  Ken and I have seen Iron Maiden many many times.  When Kiss got back together, we saw them three times, and they were great!  Ken always seems to like it when I play this next band, but there is one song he seems to like just a little bit more.

12.) Ornan’s Song – The Dirty Blondes
13.) Morning Again – Doll Fight
14.) Come To Space – ROUGH FRANCIS

Ken always likes it when I play Rough Francis.  I really should try and drag him to a show sometime soon.  I like the symmetry of dedicating this to my brother with a band lead by brothers.  Doll Fight really rock too.  Well, I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town.  Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

Hey, Tim still here.  I’ve always been playing a Fish song after my show, and Ken has remarked how much he’s liked all the songs on A Feast Of Consequences.  This is my favorite.

I popped back on the mic and expressed my great pleasure that the fans just got a vote for Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees and this year Rush was chosen. I queued up the following as I walked out the door

Closer to the Heart – Rush

Cygnus X-1 – Rush

Xanadu – Rush

Then the station went into the next regularly scheduled Jethro Tull song

The walk home had the wind at my back. It was so furious, I felt like a reverse comet.
