Stranded podcast #128

September 29, 2012

* Featuring the classic 1993 ‘Coprolalia’ EP from You Am I, the debut single from Vancouver-based Melbourne ex-pat Ma Petite and an interview with Vancouver (via Korea) indie electro rock band We Need Surgery *

The 1993 EP ‘Coprolalia’ EP from You Am I is a fine time capsule of an emerging rock band powered by the steadfast self-belief and song-writing smarts of Tim Rogers. Lee Ranaldo of Sonic Youth was taken to the band and offered to master this powerful release and then produce the classic follow-up full-length ‘Hi Fi Way’.

Vancouver-based folk songstress Indiana Avent (Ma Petite) relocated from Melbourne to Canada to record her first solo album, after a decade already in the music industry, primarily as a violinist for acts including Dan Mangan and Gotye. Her debut single ‘Man About Moon’ is launched tonight at the Media Club  and you can hear this fine tune on the show!

This week I had a chance to connect with Brandon and Valentino, drummer and guitarist respectively, of We Need Surgery, a highly-danceble and cutting-edge indie electro rock band that formed in 2007 as a collective of ex-pat English teacher musicians in South Korea. On today’s interview you can hear the fascinating story behind the band’s movements between Korea, Japan and now Vancouver, their new home, where they’ve been the subject of a bidding war between labels to release their self-titled debut.
