* Featuring Orit Shimoni LIVE in the CiTR studio *

Orit Shimoni is our very special guest in the studio today. Orit is a well-travelled singer-songwriter who we have invited to perform at the very next ‘Stranded Sunday Session’ at the Railway Club in Vancouver on April 12. Orit, who hails originally from Jerusalem, has been touring and recording consistently for 7 years. Today Orit speaks of how the determination to pursue the uncertain life of a full-time solo artist is drawn from her ‘pure love of song’. And we are gifted with four lyrically-rich live acoustic tracks in the studio.

* Featuring Lime Spiders *

We kick off the show with a few blistering singles from 80s underground legends Lime Spiders (you can find ’25th Hr’ and ‘Out Of Control’ on the indispensable 2 x CD compilation ‘Do The Pop’).  Lime Spiders, led by singer Mick Blood, were in operation primarily from 1979 until 1990.  They didn’t release their full-length, the classic ‘The Cave Comes Alive!’ until 1987 after years of honing their live act in the beer barns of Australia. Their sound is distinctive for the time in that they were powered by punk and almost metallic riffing, but also drawing on the influences of psychedelic and Nuggets-era American rock.  The resulting musical concoction was exhilarating.
