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.

1.) Wooden Heart – SWALE
2.) Avalon – Split Tongue Crow
3.) Crown Jewell – Wren Kitz
4.) Ghost – Kelly Ravin

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
8.) Bird On The Sea – The New Siberians

What a great song from the Siberians. Depth are from NYC and will stop by Radio Bean on Sunday. Have you seen the video for Realization? It’s really fun. Great song from Kat and the band. This next singer is from MA but plays all around New England and visits us in VT on a regular basis.

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
12.) Break – Slingshot Dakota

Slingshot are from PA but stop by and play on a regular basis. Francis is from Scotland but lived in VT for a while and played a series of great shows at Club Metronome around the time he released the Man album. 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

I love it when Milton plays that song. Wail rocked us in the ’90’s and Ninja were great back in the late ’80’s. Breaks always put on a fun show. This next band are playing tonight at SideBar.

25.) Could You Be The One? – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
26.) Tell Me No – Clever Girls
27.) 25 Mile Per Hour Blues – Better Things
28.) Jackbooted Thugs (Have All The Best Drugs) – Anders Parker
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?

Before: This Land Is Your Land – Bernie Sanders and 30 VT musicians
Orange Like Water – The Cush
Delirious – The Church Band
Strange Phenomena – Kate Bush

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. Winter finally arrived in the last week. It’s a bit warm tonight and will warm up this weekend, but it’s nice to have some snow and a little cold. Burlington is hopping tonight as there is a Presidential candidate in town speaking at Flynn Center for the Performing Arts. There are lots of supporters and lots of protesters and lots of people peacefully participating in the process of democracy. It’s kind of a cool thing. Tonight let’s begin with some classic Burlington rock and roll.

1.) All My Life – Wide Wail
2.) Tastes Like Nothing – Zola Turn
3.) Popular Crowd – Swale
4.) Lean In – When Particles Collide

I just love that song from the mighty road warrior duo. If you ever get a chance to see Particles, go. They always play a great show and play with other great bands. Killer rocker from Swale. They are playing a couple of shows this week, including doing a cover set from the Pants this weekend at ArtsRiot. They are playing as themselves Friday at The Skinny Pancake. Killer classics from Zola and Wail. OK, let’s play the next song from Red Flannel Hash.

5.) BS Passes – Black Rabbit
6.) Angels and Devils – Invisible Homes and Scott Mangan
7.) Swing The Gavel – Elephants of Scotland
8.) Into The Light – Great Western

Killer song from Western. Great brand new song from Elephants. That sounds nicely like an old Genesis song. Great unreleased song from Homes, with a little help. I just got that one and really like it. Great song from Rabbit!! This next singer just hit the road and is playing all over. She recorded this one live on the road.

9.) Barstools (Live at Otis Mountain Get Down) – Abbie Morin
10.) Glory Bound – Maryse Smith
11.) The North – Hana Zara
12.) We Shall Overcome – U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders and 30 Vermont musicians

It’s great to hear Bernie speak about real issues that will help people. This was recorded in the ’80’s and he is still consistent today. Local music writer for Seven Days, Dan Bolles asked several local people in the music business for top local album picks of the year, among other things. I feel fortunate that he asked my opinion. I could not decide between JV by The Mountain Says no, or Red Flannel Hash. If I had a third choice it would have been The North from Hana Zara. It’s a great song and a great album. Maryse Smith just moved to Philadelphia, but we would love to have her come back to play a show anytime. Glory is such a great song. Wow, Barstools rocked!! OK, let’s switch gears a little.

13.) The Alchemist – Pours
14.) All Your Basis – Invisible Homes
15.) Yardsale – Lendway
16.) Mirror Mirror – Joe Adler

Joe Adler & The Rangers Of Danger are playing Nectar’s tomorrow, so if you like that song, go check them out. I miss Lendway. Killer new song by Homes. It’s a bit odd, but it’s growing on me. Great song from Pours. This next band are playing Saturday night at the Zen Lounge.

17.) Long Term Sermon – The Mountain Says No
18.) Distance – Vetica
19.) Let’s Bury Bob – Screaming Broccoli
20.) Naomi’s Back – Fire The Cannons

Great song from one of the great rock bands that have played Burlington. Classic song from Broccoli. Vetica broke up, but just released a couple of albums of unreleased songs. Great song from Mountain. This next band put on a killer show just after midnight on New Year’s Eve at The Monkey House, and it was a great way to start 2016. I especially liked this song.

21.) Righteous – ROUGH FRANCIS
22.) Burn – The Dirty Blondes
23.) Heavy Psych – The Cush
24.) Womb With A View – Heavy Plains

Great song from Plains. They will play the Monkey House soon. Powerhouse song from the Cush. Fun rocker from the Blondes. OK, let’s go classic Burlington.

25.) Always Monica/Down At The Duck (live) – Chin Ho

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

26.) Sayonara

I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only Wbkm Dot Org. Jason Cooley stopped in to play a few songs live and I played some very new music.

Song before: Out Of The Blue – David Gilmour

promo

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. I had a great time seeing Vedora last Saturday at Radio Bean then had a great time seeing Phil Yates at the same place the next night. Phil has a new album coming out soon, No Need To Beg, and he kindly sent me the whole new album. He played a great version of this song solo and I love the full band version. This is Little French Earthquakes by Phil Yates on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) Little French Earthquakes – Phil Yates & The Affiliates
2.) 40 Days – Better Things
3.) Papertrain – David L. Jarvis
4.) Rock And Roll Is My Weapon – Ninja Custodian

Last week was my 100th show and I missed some classics. Hopefully playing these three is a step towards completing that. OK, let’s play the last song on Many Things & Many Scenes.

5.) Many A Girl (reprise) – Joe Adler
6.) The Whole – Milton Busker
7.) Running Away From Home – The Snaz

I’ve heard of the Snaz but just recently got the album. It’s quite good. They are one of the bands representing Vermont at South By Southwest this year. Great new song from Milton. One of the area’s great performers is leaving for L.A. We wish you luck!

8.) The Night – Gregory Douglas
9.) Grass Is Always Greener – Phil Yates and the Affiliates
10.) What’s In California? – Joshua Glass Music

Great song from Josh! That’s another song from Phil’s upcoming album. Nice song from Gregory. OK I’ve got Jason Cooley in the studio to play acoustic guitar and sing a few songs (we chat a little).

11.) My Bitter End Blue Button) – Jason Cooley
12.) How It Goes (Blue Button) – Jason Cooley
13.) MSP2 ROUGH FRANCIS) – Jason Cooley

Thanks Jason!!!!!!! OK, let’s head south a little to talk about the marvel that is the clay soil in Addison County. It can be heavy when wet and rock solid when dry, yet still, somehow things will grow in it.

14.) Addison County Clay – Dirtminers
15.) Beach Song – Mr. Ray Fork
16.) AV6 – Bad Smell
17.) My Atom Girl – Raph Worrick and the Dirtminers

That set goes out to Raph who has been playing music in Vermont for a long time, has gone to an international school in Pakistan (hence the last song of the set), has played in a couple of projects with Jane Boxall Percussion, is a fireman, is one of Phil’s Affiliates, and is an all around great guy. Thanks for doing what you do! OK, let’s play one more.

18.) Death Of A Barn Cat – Dirtminers
19.) Black Cat – Black Rabbit
20.) Cats Were Born – And The Kids

That is such a tremendous version of that song from their new album Turn To Each Other. Great song from Rabbit. This next band will return to Burlington, or Winooski rather, when they play The Monkey House in April. I’m quite excited.

21.) Above My Ground – Landlady
22.) Above The Frequency – Invisible Homes
23.) Burn Burn Burn – Phil Yates and the Affiliates

Phil played a great version of that on Sunday. He, the Affiliates and Invisible Homes will play Nectar’s on Tuesday and I’m quite psyched! OK, let’s take a quick swing around New England.

24.) Seen Man – Endless Jags
25.) Lean In – When Particles Collide
26.) Uh Oh – Slowdim

I love that song from Slowdim. I’ve never seen them and would love it if someone brought them to town. Great song form Particles who travel quite a lot. I think Jags are playing Waking Windows this year. They, or some version of them, usually do. I want to congratulate Rebekah Whitehurst and Steve Tremblay on the birth of their daughter.

27.) Mine All Mine – Cave Bees
promo from Ted Pappadopoulos and the New Siberians
28.) Seeds And Stems – The New Siberians
29.) Something I Drew – farm
30.) Gone With Eraser – Lendway

Beautiful song from a band who’s trademark is beautiful songs. Love the Farm song. Can’t wait for the new Siberians album. I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?

I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only Wbkm Dot Org. I promised some punk rock and some classic rock, and think I delivered. I also threw in some experimental new stuff.

Song before: Orion – Jethro Tull

promo

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds Of Burlington. It’s a chilly night in Burlington. There are a few people waking out and down the beautifully lit Church st. Tonight let’s start with a recording from Nectar’s from the WBKM 7th birthday party a couple of weeks ago. This is the Seth Yacovone Band playing some Neil Young & Crazy Horse on WBKM and this is Burlington’s kind of music.

1.) Cowgirl In The Sand – Real Old & Insane Donkey
2.) Little Wing – Bob Wagner and the Book “em Blues Band

Both of those were recorded at the WBKM 7th birthday party. There is an amazing amount of talent in those two bands! This next band played our birthday show too, but I don’t have a recording of it. This is two great guitarists from another live show.

3.) Destiny Waits – Bud & Budd ~ The Kind Buds
4.) These Summer Nights – Sarah Blacker
5.) Lean In – When Particles Collide

I love that song from the great duo from Maine. Sarah is from Boston but plays Burlington now and then too. Great guitar playing and singing from the Buds. I’ve just been handed a bulletin. This just in, punk rock is alive and well in Burlington Vermont!

6.) Hello World – Screaming Skulls
7.) Green Peaks Dark Valleys – Get A Grip
8.) Vermont City Living – Gorgon
9.) Be Aggressive – BE AGGRESSIVE
10.) Black Oil – Doom Service

Great song about the X-Files in the DS song. They’ve been playing lots of shows in town lately. Love the BA song. Gorgon always rock. Skulls is a new band with Justin Gonyea who is also in Doom. Grip are playing this weekend at Radio Bean. Friday has three can’t miss shows, so I’ll have to miss two. Dino Bravo VT and Crazyhearse are playing The Monkey House, Black Rabbit and Cave Bees are playing Manhattan Pizza and Pub, and ROUGH FRANCIS are celebrating their birthday with Friday and Saturday shows at Radio Bean. Friday they are playing with Varsity Drag, Blowtorch, Blue Button, Pours, and Get A Grip. Saturday they are playing with Ravi Shavi, Endless Jags, Swale, Black Rabbit and DJ Disco Phantom. I work until 9:30 on Friday and 11:30 on Saturday. I’m going to miss a lot of music, but should be able to catch some. OK, let’s go to the next song on Lipstick and Dynamite.

11.) The Invisibles – Black Rabbit
12.) Golden Goose – Cave Bees
13.) Righteous – Rough Francis
14.) Dead Or In Jail – Crazyhearse

All of those bands are great and playing pretty much at the same time. What’s a poor music fan to do? Oh, and Cave Bees have a guy named Creston Lea who is a great guitar player and guitar maker. Check out the video about him if you get a chance! OK, let’s keep rocking.

15.) Tic Toc – Doll Fight
16.) Imaginary – Envy
17.) Weapons Factory – The Wards
18.) Burn – The Dirty Blondes

The Blondes have been rocking town for quite a while. The Wards rocked us in the ’80;s, Envy in the ’90’s and Doll in the 00’s. Love all those songs. I miss Doll Fight. Christine moved on to Boston, I think Kelly formed Gorgon, and Jane Boxall Percussion is doing a million things, like playing with Black Rabbit, Vedora, and something new. On the walk down I noticed Orion in the sky for the first time. Winter is here. Seeing the hunter always makes me think of this song.

19.) Stylus Of Id – Somah
20.) Summer’s Gone – The Cush
21.) Words – Slingshot Dakota
22.) Next Summer Out On The Ice – Endless Jags

I love the new Jags album Sell The Banquet. I’ll likely be working when they are playing. Love Slingshot! Nice video out for The Cush song. I just got this next song before heading down to do the show. This is a piece by Raph Worrick and Jane Boxall, collectively known as Bad Smell.

23.) AV6 (?) – Bad Smell
24.) The Alchemist – Pours
25.) Einstein-Rosen Bridge – Jeremy Gilchrist

Very cool lyrics on the Jeremy song. It’s kind of fun playing some new music and as soon as I heard it, I though it would mix nicely into Pours. OK, let’s go back to the birthday party show for some more Seth.

26.) Down By The River -> Like A Hurricane – Real Old & Insane Donkey

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

WBKM 7th Birthday Party with Devin Gallucci, Bud and Budd The Kind Buds, The Seth Yacovone Band, and The Book ‘Em Blues Band at Nectar’s November 15, 2014   Leave a comment

I had a great time seeing music at the Wbkm Dot Org 7th birthday party at Nectar’s on Saturday night. The show started around 7 but I had to work until 8. I did a reasonably quick turnaround at home and arrived a little after 9 and Bud & Budd ~ The Kind Buds were on stage. Everyone knew that Bud on the right was a great guitar player, but Bud on the left was pretty extraordinary too. Together they weaved their guitars and voices seamlessly to create some magical songs. I only caught a couple of songs but they seemed to have a pattern of creating a really nice song, then as it got into the middle section they brought the music to tremendous heights, before gently returning it to an average normal brilliant song. It was truly breathtaking. As I had just arrived, I chatted with Tony Gallucci and Eric Koval for a bit, but mostly paid attention to the band. They wrapped up the set with a mellow version of Deal that floated along nicely, then started building and building in the middle until it seemed like the whole room would explode, then dropped it back into the chorus, and let the ending play out. I had a vague memory of being impressed with them before and was completely blown away Saturday. I’ve got to get their music on my radio show!
During the switchover, I chatted with Rich Haskell, and before the next band stated a few of us Wbkmers took the stage and Tony chatted with the audience about the station and 7 years of music.
We hopped off stage and Real Old & Insane Donkey (really The Seth Yacovone Band) started rocking. Everyone knew that Seth was a great guitar player, but the guitar player on the left was pretty extraordinary too. I missed his name but he and Seth traded leads all night long and both were stunning. The rhythm section was super solid and the whole set was songs from Neil Young & Crazy Horse. They opened with a solid Rocking In the Free World then wowed the packed room with Powderfinger. The next was a fun mid-tempo obscure Neil song who’s name eludes me, but was lots of fun. They turned it up to eleven and played a long and joyous Cowgirl In The Sand. Mere words cannot capture how amazing it was. It seemed to go on forever and was blissful for every note. The next one was a mid-tempo rocker. I think it was Welfare Mothers (they definitely played it but I did not keep track of order of the songs), then unleashed Cortez The Killer. Unfortunately, the guitar player not named Seth lost his amp in the middle, though fortunately he got in a nice solo before it burned out. D.Davis was on it and exchanged his amp for the burned one, and had the guitar back in the game by the end of the song. Seth did a great job holding it together, though I’m sure the song would have been greater without the glitch. They followed with a killer rock version of Fucking Up that made me wish the amp burned out in that one, just for humor’s sake. They played a couple of more obscure Neil tunes then floored the room with Down By The River. They followed with a stunning Like A Hurricane and wrapped it up with a super heavy My My Hey Hey. It was a truly tremendous show.
Usually, at the Wbkm birthday parties, Tony’s kids play a set or two, During the set break I chatted with Michele Clifford Streeter and Annemarie Gallucci and asked about the opening band Bruise Box. That was a band with their kids, but a last minute breakdown had only Devin Gallucci play solo. It must have taken a lot of courage to not have your band and just get up and play anyway. I wish I had been there to see it.
Up next, the Book ‘Em Blues Band took the stage. Everyone knows that Bob Wagner is a great guitar player, But D. Davis, the guitar player on the right was pretty extraordinary too. Joined by the one man symphony, John Rogone, on bass, and the constantly attacking Russ Lawton on drums, the band were super tight and quite stunning. The songs were mostly blues classics that I did not know. It didn’t matter. They played so well, everything sounded great. The place was packed and people were dancing like crazy. The first set was not too long, and I was getting tired. It had been a long day. In the set break I headed to the WBKM studio a couple of doors down to find a less crowded bathroom. I ran into Eric and we wandered into the studio and chatted a bit. We then headed back and the band were onstage ripping up the second set. I think they were playing a Dead song when we walked in, but I’m not sure. I was really tired and barely still standing at this point, but had to stick around as they let loose a killer version of Frank Zappa‘s Bamboozled By Love. I’m sure they played a bunch more killer songs, but that was it for me. I took the happy gentle walk home with a heart full of music and a deep appreciation for all the staggering musical talent that we get in this town.

I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only Wbkm Dot Org. It’s the day before Halloween so I played lots of scary songs and let Mr E. Ghoul speak about energy, spirits, mortality and what lies beyond.

Songs before:Please Mr Gravedigger – David Bowie (Official)
End Of the World – Gary Moore with Jack Bruce on bass and vocals

promo

intro

Good evening, it is I, Mr E. Ghoul, here to play the substance that you quaintly call music for you this evening. The one you refer to as Tim has again this year lent me his body so that I may incarnate for two of your earthly hours. I have scary songs lined up to challenge your perceptions of what is in your reality and what is the reality beyond. Let’s begin with a ride on the crazy hearse. This is Barbacoa on WBKM and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) Crazy Hearse – Barbacoa
2.) Demon Moon – Crazyhearse
3.) Demons – Waylon Speed
4.) Monsters – Cold Sweat
5.) Black Cat – Black Rabbit

That song was about the Black Cat Cafe, a place on Bank Street in Burlington, that burned in the 1970’s. People transferred from your mortal world to the spiritual one in the blast. Last week Tim played the last song on the Row EP from Anachronist. He will now play Lipstick and Dynamite all the way through, song by song, week after week, Black Cat was the first song. Nice tale of all the monsters in the world from the Syracuse band. Scary supernatural songs from Waylon and Crazyhearse. People died in the Black Cat fire but that is part of your mortal cycle. More cats will be born.

6.) Cats Were Born – And The Kids
7.) Nosferatu – The Lestons
8.) Vampyre – David L. Jarvis

Scary song from Dave and a nice homage to one of the first times you learned dance energy and to move pictures and made something that can shift your emotions, to this day. I hope you weren’t too scared of the Kids tale of monsters in the closet. Let us now look west and take a trip through the graveyard.

9.) Graveyard Before Dark – Alice Austin
10.) Our Lady Of The Underground – Anais Mitchell
11.) Death – Ccccome!
12.) Dogs At The Door – Milton Busker

Such a scary tale of imminent doom from the mortal you call Milton. It is only your understanding of yourself as a part of your body that you fear the dogs and death. Despite the scary title, death is just the transformation from this realm to the next, and it contains beautiful irony in that the author is so full of life. That was a nice tale of digging into your subconscious through the power of myth by Anais. One night at Radio Bean Marco Benevento and Kat Wright put a spell on their audience. This is a recording of the event.

13.) I Put A Spell On You – Marco Benevento and Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band (just Kat but I left the name for the FB tag)
14.) Devil – farm
15.) Dragnet – Vedora
16.) Violence – Peg Tassey MUSIC

Ah yes, Halloween is a night to try on a new costumes and personas. Peg has donned the costume of Alice Cooper, as Violence is really Is It My Body. It’s funny because Alice Cooper is the costume of Vincent Furnier, and on it goes. Vedora speak well of the forces of attraction and forces are all that exist in the spiritual world. That was a frightening tale of Farm and the Devil, but it came out OK in the end. Up next is a song about masks and ghosts and blood.

17.) Lithuania – Hana Zara
18.) Masquerade For A Heartache – The Starline Rhythm Boys
19.) Giving Up The Ghost – Aaron Flinn and Salad Days
20.) Ghost – Phish
21.) Killing Ghosts – Better Things

Silly mortals, you cannot kill a ghost. Nice ghostly tales from Phish and Aaron Flinn. That energy transference that you call love is a powerful force. It sometimes requires a mask. Here is another band who play Burlington now and then, and they are wearing a mask.

22.) Children Of The Grave – JCHA
23.) One More Grave – The Contrarian
24.) Knight ov Swords – The Contrarian
25.) Ghostified – Persian Claws

It is time to return this mortal body to Tim. I hope you enjoyed my stories of your side and the other. Come back next week when Tim will continue to help you check out the music of this town, and perpetually do it again next week.

I just got back from my local music radio show on internet only Wbkm Dot Org. I played a lot of bands from town and some that have come here to play.

Song before: Running Up That Hill – Kate Bush

promo

intro

From our small city to the great big world, these are the Sounds of Burlington. The nights have been cool and some of the leaves are starting to turn, but the days have been hazy, lazy, sunny and warm. It always makes me think of this song. This is the next song from Ninja Jane on WBKM, and this is Burlington’s Kind Of Music.

1.) Curveball Dreamer – Zola Turn
2.) This Is Our Good Night – Aya Inoue
3.) Salvation and Sin – Satori Bob
4.) Big Enough – Anachronist

I loved seeing them at Waking Windows this year and wanted to pull out another of their great songs. Great song from John Baumann and Robert Gagnon. I wanted to play the Aya song because I read she was not feeling well. Let’s all think good healing thoughts for her and Sonja Clawson and everyone else who’s not feeling so well. The Zola song always makes me think of Baseball games in the summer sun. Up next is a band who just played a library and released a new EP.

5.) 40 Days – Better Things
6.) Always Monica -> Down At The Duck – Chin Ho!
7.) Grounded – Invisible Jet

Great song from the ’90’s. I think Ryan Ober is playing tomorrow at Radio Bean, though he sounds a bit different now. Great stuff from Chin Ho!, another classic Burlington band. Let’s keep the groove going with Raq.

8.) WalkingInCircles – Raq
9.) Star – The New Siberians
10.) Mirror Mirror – Joe Adler & The Rangers Of Danger

That was live from Nectar’s. His new album just came out today but I don’t have a copy yet. Expect a lot of it next week. He officially releases it next Saturday at Nectar’s. Great song by the Siberians. Next is a band I should have gone to see last Tuesday at The Monkey House. I think I would have really liked them!

11.) Mush – Phantom Suns
12.) Imaginary – Envy
13.) Mine All Mine – Cave Bees
14.) Rejected – Black Rabbit

I’m psyched for September 12 when Rabbit and the Bees rock the Monkey House!!! I love the way new music, like Phantom mixes with ’90’s music like Envy, so effortlessly. Here’s a new classic Burlington band.

15.) How It Goes – Blue Button
16.) Finally Found The One – When Particles Collide
17.) Trading Bullets – Fire The Cannons
18.) Ipso Facto – Tesla’s Revenge

It was so great to see them at the library. I hope they come back to town soon. At one point in the 2000’s I was looking for a new rock band to love. Cannons came on the scene and played some killer shows! I felt like playing a Particles song and that one just jumped into my head. Up next is another band who played the library, they’re from Rutland.

19.) Sad One Out – SADG’s
20.) Northern Memory – The Cush
21.) Voodoo Camaro – Wide Wail
22.) Crazy Hearse – Barbacoa

Not to be confused with Crazyhearse, Barbacoa’s song is two words. Great song from WW. Northern is the first song I remember from when the Cush moved back to Texas, then came back to town to play their new album. Speaking of Texas, this next guy never came to town and it’s not music, but this is Burlington’s Kind Of Attitude.

23.) It’s Just A Ride – Bill Hicks (AMERICAN The Bill Hicks Story)
24.) Purpose And Object – The Contrarian
25.) Above My Ground – Landlady

I loved the day Landlady played at Signal Kitchen and that was what Burlington sounded like at that moment. Anyone want to bring them back to town? Many times? Contrairan is Casey Ronin Rae who guided me to a lot of great music when he wrote the music column for Seven Days so many years ago. Love his songs too! I hope you enjoyed checking out the music of our town. Let’s do it again next week, shall we?
