* Featuring tracks from the Ugly Pop Records series of garage-rock 7″ re-issues, and an ‘Arts Extra’ special on ‘Pleased To Meet You: Introductions by Gwyn Hanssen Pigott’ which is showing at the Museum of Anthropology until March 2013 *

Some more tracks from the Ugly Pop Records re-issue series on the show today!  We’re hearing from two Canadian garage rock bands from the 60s – The Northwest Company (Vancouver) and A Passing Fancy (Toronto), as well as the only recorded output of Edmonton’s Rock N Roll Bitches, whose 7″ Wild Wild West was recorded in 1980.  Vancouver listeners can purchase copies of these 7″s from Moloch Records.

We have  brief detour into the world of visual arts today with a special on ‘Pleased To Meet You: Introductions by Gwyn Hanssen Pigott’ which is showing at the Museum of Anthropology (MOA) in Vancouver until March 2013.  Gwyn Hanssen Pigott is a world-renowned Australian ceramicist who was invited to pick out objects from the MOA collection and place them together in an exhibit, purely by reference to form and aesthetics.  I attended the opening of the exhibit a few weeks back and recorded an interview with Gwyn herself as well as a curator of the MOA.  You can hear those interviews today, as well as my reflections on the exhibit.

And it’s Christmas time, so Paul Kelly‘s classic ‘How To Make Gravy’ is a compulsory spin today! You can also hear the heartfelt classic ‘Christmas Eve (with you)’ by Peter Foldy and a brand new free-for-download Christmas tune by Sloan 🙂

First up on the show is an interview with First Nations blues musician Murray Porter who is performing Friday 7th December at the Music BC Charitable Foundation event ‘A Celebration of BC Music & Music Education’ at the Vogue Theatre.  Murray Porter is Mohawk from Six Nations of the Grand River Territory in southern Ontario but he has lived in Vancouver for many years.   Murray won a 2012 JUNO Award for `Aboriginal Album of the Year’, for his release `Songs Lived & Life Played’. “Murray Porter is a master bluesman”.

The other day while browsing at a London Drugs I came across a CD re-issue of the original US release from AC/DC – the album ‘High Voltage‘ (1976).  Perfect for ‘Stranded’ I concluded…!  I feature 4 tracks from this Oz rock classic which is a treat for listeners who are partial to the working-man’s blues boogie/rock and lyrical double-entendres of Bon Scott era AC/DC.

The final part of the show features some impressive current Cancon including  a couple of tracks from J.Riley Hill – an up and coming outlaw folk/country singer from Winnipeg – and a punchy number by two-piece Hole In My Head who are supporting The Jolts and Nu Sense at the Interurban Gallery in Vancouver on Sat 8 Dec.

Stranded podcast #133

November 24, 2012

* Featuring an interview with Los Angeles-based musician and filmmaker Peter Foldy who recorded a string of great pop hits in the 1970s, and who has spent time living in Australia and Canada *

The long-running Canadian independent label Ugly Pop Records is re-issuing some classic 7″ singles, including some vinyl from Australia. IN-SECT are an obscure 60s garage band from Adelaide, SA, who released their first single in June 1966.  Today on the show you can hear both sides of this fuzzed-out gem of a 7″, including the b-side cover of a Yardbirds classic.

And we continue featuring tunes from Adelaide with two brand new tracks from legendary hard-core band The Mark of Cain.  It’s been over 10 years since we’ve heard from brothers John (voc/guitars) and Kim Scott (bass) and drummer John Stainer, previously of US band Helmet.  The new record ‘Songs of the Third and Fifth’ is a typically brutal yet beautiful tour de force of tight playing and lyrics which focus on military themes and the plight of the lone existentialist.

We’re delighted to invite filmmaker and songwriter Peter Foldy to chat during the second half of the show.  Peter has recently taken time out from his busy schedule in Los Angeles to assist Todd Fancey of the New Pornographers to record a solo release in Vancouver.  Today Peter shares some of his fascinating life story which spans a youth spent in Sydney, where he was friends with the Bee Gees when they were just starting out, through to his own breakthrough as an artist with the heart-felt classic single ‘Bondi Junction’ (1973).

IN-SECT – ‘I Can See My Love’ [AU]
