* Another summer holiday mix *

This week’s show is another laid-back summer holiday mix so in the absence of a studio guest you can sit back and absorb and steady stream of fresh sounds from Australia and Canada.  But we start out with a few more tracks from the perennially controversial Dayglo Abortions.  I’ve been reading Chris Walter’s super-detailed biography of the band.  It’s certainly an entertaining and sordid read.  The New Christs are up after the Dayglos as we feature some of their classic tracks and then two newies from the band’s highly anticipated and thus far well received record, ‘Incantations’.  Rob Younger on songwriting and singing duties is sounding as passionate and vitriolic as ever.

* The Good In Everyone LIVE in the CiTR studio *

We’re fortunate again this week to have some enthusiastic guest performers live on air – Nicholas and Ben from new Vancouver indie band The Good In Everyone! The band takes their name from the classic Sloan single, so we begin the chat with Nick and Ben talking of their deep appreciation for the canon of Canadian rock. Most members of the Good In Everyone have played together previously in The Mercy Years, including drummer Jamison Troy, who was a previous guest on the show. Tune in to hear some acoustic tracks played live in the studio and catch the band at their EP release at the Biltmore Cabaret next friday night!
