* Record Store Day 2014 *

Before he burst onto the global stage through a fortunate association with Sonic Youth, Ben Lee fronted the teenage band Noise Addict. Last weekend I stumbled across their mid-90s ‘Noise Addict vs Silverchair’ EP at Zulu Records so I thought I’d spin the whole CD on the show today! A highlight is ‘I Wish I Was Him’ which was Ben’s homage to Evan Dando of the Lemonheads.

Also on the show today is a selection of Vancouver artists including the legendary Destroyer who is returning for a rare homing show in mid 2014, as well as bands playing this weekend for the Sasstorino’s 1 year anniversary bash and also Record Store Day 2014!
