* Lindy Gray LIVE in the CiTR studio *

We’ve invited yet another quality local songwriter into the studio today – Lindy Gray.  Lindy, who has trained in jazz and Indian classical music, is skilled at crafting detailed narratives into song form.  She is also experienced at collaborating with other local musicians and artists as part of the Dusty Flowerpot Cabaret. You can hear three examples of Lindy’s favourite song form, the murder ballad, as she plays acoustically live in the studio.  Lindy’s debut EP ‘Ripe for Revival‘, is available online, and listeners can expect a vinyl LP is follow in the near future.

*Happy holidays!*

The Fauves are a hidden gem of Australian independent music.  Having played 1000s of shows since 1988 and mastering a potent blend of catchy alternative rock tunes with clever and at times cynical lyrics, the Fauves deserve far more accolades than their modest record sales have provided.  The ’15 Minutes To Rock’ documentary, following the band on the road from 1997 to 1999, is a wonderful snap-shot of an uncertain period in their career when they were preparing their major label followup and feeling the strain of touring.  You can hear a 5min segment of the film on the show!

* Featuring tracks from the Sub Pop records re-issue of albums by Australian post-punk/pub rock band Feedtime *

We’re back after a two week break!  The CiTR Radio sports broadcast truncates the show again today but we still have an hour to feature some great tunes.  First up is three tracks from the recent Sub Pop Records re-issue of the four albums recorded by post-punk band Feedtime who were extant during the 1980s.  The heavy, distorted guitar tones of Freedime directly influenced the Seattle grunge scene which later developed.

We also feature another band from AAA Records in New Zealand called Mice On Stilts,, as well as The Eternal Husbands who are the ambient project of Matt and Rick, formerly of The City Streets.  We wrap up the show with three of the acts that have made it through to the CiTR Radio Shindig competition, and a track from The Ruffled Feathers who are starting to play live shows again in Vancouver after some time off.

* Featuring an interview with Alex Alegria, director of the Mariachi Festival Canada *

Chris Basarba of Basone Guitars has been filling me in of late about the history of Vancouver punk and hardcore and one of the bands he’s recommended is Sparkmarker.  I tracked down an archived recording of Sparkmarker playing ‘Live At Thunderbird Radio Hell’ on CiTR in 1991 and you can hear the song ‘Courage’ from this session at the top of the show.

This Saturday Vancouver plays host to the Mariarchi Festival Canada.  Alex Alegria, founder  of the festival, phones through today to inform the listeners about the origins of Mariarchi music in Mexico and to tell of his journey from busking as a new immigrant in Vancouver, to leader of Mariachi Los Dorados and hard-working festival director.

Sadly, one of Canada’s most impressive indie bands, The City Streets, is calling it a day, but not before releasing their swan-song LP ‘Pretenders’.  You can hear three tracks from this record on the show today.  MG
