*Interview with Mark and Pete from Mark Kleiner Power Trio *

We have an interview with a true original today- Mark Kleiner – a talented stalwart of Vancouver’s music scene of the 90s, who took an about-turn in 1999, moving to Saskatchewan and committing to a Masters of Theology.  This led him to become a minster of the Lutheran Church.  Mark returned to Vancouver for a short time in 2002 to record a classic power-pop album as Mark Kleiner Power Trio.  The trio has reformed in Vancouver for a one-off show tonight at the FOX Theatre, with proceeds going to the Somali refugee effort.  Tune in to hear Mark and bassist Pete Mills speak of their fascinating lives in music and beyond!

* Alea Rae LIVE in the CiTR studio *

We begin today’s show by revisiting the edgy, swampy, alternative blues of Beasts of Bourbon. It’s just a been announced that a much-warranted documentary on the legendary band is in the works. You can see a brief trailer here.

And after two weeks off we’re back with a live studio guest! New Westminster-based folk artist Alea Rae has made the #99 bus trip down to CiTR studio, along with Patrick, another 1/3 of her band, who joins in with expert acoustic accompaniment. Alea and Patrick perform three intricate folk songs today, including both sides of the ‘Flies/Lancaster’ single which is being released at the Media Club on 14 August.

* 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.

* Featuring tracks from two different records by The Living End –  ‘It’s For Your Own Good’ (1996) and White Noise (2008) – and an interview with Vancouver folk musician Jenny Ritter *

The Living End is a seminal three-piece rockabilly/punk band from Melbourne, who features the pounding upright double-bass of Scott Owen and the blistering axe-work of singer Chris Cheney. The band formed in 1994 and shot to prominence after scoring the support slot for the 1995 Green Day tour, on the strength of a demo that was sent directly to Billie Joe Armstrong.  Today you can hear three tracks from the band’s debut recording ‘For Your Own Good’, before we leap ahead to the three singles from 2008’s  well-received ‘White Noise’ LP.

Jenny Ritter may be familiar to listeners as one of the sweet voices from seminal West Coast folk act The Gruff, who toured Canada frequently for a decade to much acclaim.  On today’s show I speak with Jenny down the line from her hometown of Victoria, BC, where she played the night previously at the launch of her debut full-length release, ‘Bright Mainland’.  Jenny speaks of her experiences playing music in Scandinavia and encouraging the flowering of local voices in the ever-popular Kingsgate Chorus.

The Living End – ‘English Army’ [AU]
The Living End – ‘One More Cell’ [AU]
The Living End – ‘Raise The Alarm’ [AU]
