* Featuring a mix-bag of great new Cancon tunes *

I recently discovered a curious compilation LP in the CiTR record library that is perfect for the show -‘Beyond The Southern Cross – A Compilation of Indie Recordings from Australia and New Zealand’.  ‘Beyond The Southern Cross’ was released as a double vinyl album by Ink Records (INK 4D) in 1984 and features tracks by notable underground bands who were active in the late 70s/early 80s.  We play from the compilation two tracks a piece by Tactics and legendary Flying Nun band The Clean, from New Zealand.

The remainder of the show is dedicated to showcasing recent releases by a superb crop of Canadian independent artists, many of who have recently been touring extensively throughout Canada, and even Scandinavia for Jenny Ritter.  Brave Parents is the hypnotic new project from Shane Turner who has recently relocated from Vancouver to Toronto.  Another real treat today is two tracks by Eamon McGrath from the Pegasus sessions of demo recordings that were recorded during the autumn of 2011, prior to last year’s last year’s Young Canadians.
