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?

Kitten Of The Sea, Sink Or Swim, and Doom Service at The Monkey House April 7, 2018   Leave a comment

Kitten Of The Sea

 

I had a great time seeing music a few Saturdays ago at The Monkey House. I’ve been a fan of Doom Service for a while and was excited to see them and buy their brand new album.

It was a long work day, but I made it through and got home and ate dinner. I took the lovely long walk to Winooski and got in and settled. Kitten of the Sea took the stage and started to rock. The had an epic opening sound that fell into a solid rock song. The music had a nice indie bounce to it and the lyrics were about how I promise you things will be better next time. The second song rocked nicely too and Meghan’s vocals were strong and clear. I think it was about bleeding. At that point they had set a nice tone. They mixed that up on the third song when bassist Avogadro Jones began to sing. His voice was cool and the music took a dark heavy punk turn that went through many changes. It was a prog punk song and was just great. I think it was about alienation. Megan returned to the vocals as the band rocked out songs about wishing I had never met you and my heart. Jones sang another that was heavy, though not quite as proggy. It was about something in my dreams. They sang a fun short punk song then sang one about codependency, enabling and about Joey dying. They closed their debut set with a song about how just because it’s normal it doesn’t mean it’s not wrong. I loved their show and would see them again in a heartbeat.

Up next, Sink or Swim hit us hard with their classic old school punk sound. They rocked a couple of songs that included one about my beautiful world without you. A short classic hardcore song was fun and the whole set was fast loud and glorious. They played so hard they blew one of the guitar amps but rocked the show to a close anyway. They were great.

 

IMG_8527

Sink Or Swim

Doom Service hit the stage and unleashed their full new album on us. All of the songs on The Uncanny Doom Service are fun and they sounded great in the full room. Jurrassic Bark was especially cool as was the song about The X-Files called Nothing Important. All of the songs have nice meoldies and rock really hard. They wrapped up the album with Coast To Ghost then took a short break. They came back for a cover of Hey Jealousy then welcomed us to the Hellmouth. They rocked out a couple more then called it a night. I was elated.

At some point my friend Nathan Curtis stopped in so we bought the album and some merch and I caught a ride home. What a great night

Tonight’s local music radio show will run from 9-11pm US Eastern Time Thursday September 14. It can be streamed from the WBKM Facebook page and will go as follows.

Song before: Fireworks – The Tragically Hip

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. My heart goes out to the people of Florida. Please help out if you can. I want to thank Higher Ground for sponsoring the show. They will bring the giant GPN festival to the waterfront this weekend. Let’s begin tonight with a couple of bands who played at The Monkey House last night.

1.) Taung Child – The Dead Shakers
2.) Echoes On – Cones
3.) Unveiled – Pours
4.) Bidets And Confused – Sad Turtle

Turtle play cool instrumentals with Seinfeld references and are always fun. It was cool to see Chris Shar of Pours at the Landlady show last week but was even cooler to hear him play drums with the Shakers. Cones are from Los Angeles and we are so lucky to live in a town where they can just come and play on a Wednesday night. The Shakers haven’t recorded their full psychedelic sound yet but Child hints at it. More about that in a couple of weeks. OK, it’s time to play the last song on Loose Tooth and I will have to pick a new album to play all the way through, song after song, week after week.

5.) We Tried – Clever Girls
6.) I Like Flowers And I’m Not Afraid To Say It – Peg Tassey MUSIC
7.) Automatic Sweetheart – Hammydown
8.) Day Of The Dead – Hana Zara

Hana just successfully funded her new album with a Kickstarter campaign and I can’t wait to hear it. It was cool to see Abbie Gail from Hammydown play with Caroline Rose at the Madaila on Main show recently. I got to go to Ottawa and see the mosaiculture and to go to Montreal to see the botanical gardens this week so the Peg song jumped to mind. Great song and EP from Clever Girls. I”m sure they will have something new soon since they have lots of songs in their set that are not recorded yet. Last Saturday I saw a few classic bands at Higher Ground and one who have been playing around but I had just not seen. Here is one of their songs.

9.) Co2U Later – The Tsunamibots
10.) Projector – Vetica
11.) Despite The Rain – Starlight Conspiracy
12.) Nowhere Feels Like Home – Fire The Cannons

Cannons played in the early 00’s and rocked us hard. Starlight were a cool ’90’s band. Vetica played some great shows in the 10’s and the Tsunamibots are putting on fantastic shows now. OK, let’s reach even further back into Burlington’s past.

13.) Boom Boom (Out Go The Lights) – The N-Zones
14.) Paint It Black – Silver Bridget
15.) Breathe – Ninja Custodian
16.) Cowgirl In The Sand – Real Old and Insane Donkey

That was a band that Seth Yacovone put together to play some Neil Young songs. Ninja used to play cool covers back in the late ’80’s at Nectar’s and other places. Bridget played last Saturday and are playing the next couple of Saturday’s at Nectar’s. N-Zones played back in the early ’80’s or late ’70’s. Burlington has a lot of great original music but we do like covers too. OK, this next band will make a rare appearance in town at Light Club Lamp Shop tomorrow at 7:30.

17.) Northern Skies – The Lindbergh Baby
18.) Say It – Anachronist
19.) A Company Man – Carraway
20.) Drug Laws – SWALE

I love the way that song continuously rocks. Such a fun song from Carraway. Great songs form Anachronist and Lindbergh. So, last Friday there were a bunch of cool bands who played at the Art Hop but heavy rain wiped out most of the outside shows. This band saw a break in the weather, got set up and began to play as the rain came back. This was the only song of their set and they are such troopers for even playing that one.

21.) The Original Original – Black Rabbit
22.) Good Times – Grand
23.) Shark – Greaseface
24.) Blank Daze – Mr. Doubtfire
25.) Blue Lights – Sink or Swim

Sink will play a show this Saturday. Ask them for the detains since it’s an underground show. Doubtfire and Grand played a great show at Radio Bean Monday night. Grease are playing at the Monkey House on Saturday. OK, let’s keep rocking.

26.) By Design – The Nancy Druids
27.) The Great Forgetter – The New Siberians
28.) Small Town Movie – The Cush
29.) Song About The Ocean – Dino Bravo VT

Those are four of many the great songs to come out of the Burlington scene. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

14.) Think I’ll Stay – Great Western

Song before It Can Happen – Yes

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Next Wednesday at The Monkey House there will be another Show Up Show to raise money for a good cause. This band will be one of the ones who play.

Kelly and Lowell Thompson will play the show up show with their band the Welterweights. This show will benefit Black Lives Matter. Wren will also play a set, and so will Swale. I tossed in the Crow song since it’s so beautiful. OK, here is the next song on By My Side.

5.) Who’s Your Fool? – Kat Wright
6.) Realization – Madaila
7.) Waiting For The World To End – The Depth and the Whisper

9.) Blood From Your Gun – Sarah Blacker & New England Groove Association
10.) Anytime (R & B) – jane siberry
11.) In The Garden Of Mystic Lovers – Francis Dunnery

I saw Jane at Hunt’s twice many years ago, at Memorial once with the Indigo Girls, and once at Higher Ground several years ago. Thanks for sponsoring our station HG! Someone should bring Jane back, she is so much fun live. Hmmmm, Sarah. OK, this next band just released an EP called Drive By Fruiting.

13.) Once More, With Apathy – Mr. Doubtfire
14.) Harder – apb
15.) An Obscene Amount Of Debt – Sink or Swim
16.) I Choo-Choo-Choose You – Mr Doubtfire.

I had fun seeing those three bands at Jim’s basement last Saturday. Another band called Ransom Smith played also, but I could not find any of their music, so I had to play a second Doubtfire song. It’s new too. There is a long history of punk rock in Burlington and it’s nice to know it’s still happening. For the next song, let’s go back to the beginning.

17.) Weapons Factory – The Wards
18.) No More Sex – Pinhead
19.) Oklahoma Road Rage – Crazyhearse
20.) Mark My Words – Black Rabbit

Rabbit and Crazyhearse could come out and play those songs at any time. Wards and Pinhead rocked us ’80’s style. Speaking of the ’80’s, I’d like to welcome Annmarie back to the WBKM airwaves for a show of ’80’s music that runs from 8-9 on Thursdays before my show. OK, this next band will rock Foam Brewers on Friday.

21.) Sea Chopper – The High Breaks
22.) That’s When I Reach For My Revolver – Ninja Custodian
23.) Help Wanted – Wide Wail
24.) Dogs At The Door – Milton Busker

26.) Tell Me No – Clever Girls
27.) 25 Mile Per Hour Blues – Better Things

29.) Mr Reed – Seth Yacovone Band

Great rockers from Seth and Anders. It was nice chatting with Brian LaClair of Better Things on Saturday. He’s helping to bring lots of music to the basement this year. It’s always fun to play Clever’s music. I’ll likely play some next week too. Phil and the band are always fun. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
