Stranded podcast #189

March 9, 2014

* Featuring NOMEANSNO * 

NOMEANSNO are a truely one–of-a-kind band and an alternative Canadian institution. The Wright brothers, on bass and drums, formed the nucleus of the band in 1979 in Victoria, BC and developed their unique sound and sensibility before the addition of a guitarist. Lytically they have never feared to enter taboo territory and intelligently shed light on the nature of the human condition and political topics, without being preachy. You can hear a small handful of tracks from the band’s lengthy recording career today. You can also hear me read excepts from the invaluable book ‘NOMEANSNO: Going Nowhere’ by super-fan Mark Black, which is part of the Bibliographic series from Invisible Publishing.

Also on the show are tracks from the debut release by Vancouver group Spring, as well as two Australian artists who are making the trek to the 2014 SXSW Festival in Austin, TX.

* Featuring interviews with Vancouver musician Joseph Hirabayashi and Canadian ex-pat Ocean Leaves *

It’s time to explore songs from seminal Canadian bands, and what better way to do so than by spinning the new compilation of the book ‘Have Not Been The Same: The Canrock Renaissance 1985-1995’.  We start with Vancouver band Slow who are underground legends who it is believed inspired bands that emerged from the Seattle grunge scene.   More history to come in future weeks…!

Joseph Hirabayashi is a highly respected multi-instrumentalist, music teacher member of Vancouver bands Aunts & Uncles and SPRING (formerly SSRIs).  We speak to Joseph on the phone today about is rock operetta contribution to this weekend’s musical event Spatial Poetics XII: Release Me – an evening of experimental and collaborative performances by an eclectic line-up of Asian Canadian artists.

The Australian part of the show begins with tracks from Brisbane band The Bloodpoets before our second interview, this time with Timothy Poitras, a singer-songwriter who operates in Australia under the name Ocean Leaves.  Timothy grew up in Ontario and relocated to Queensland four years ago, before marrying and finally settling down in the Blue Mountains, NSW.  Timothy reveals his musical and cross-oceanic journey today and we air tracks from his debut EP ‘Always Is The Time To Make Everything’.   With such strong Australian/Canadian connections, Ocean Leaves seems born for ‘Stranded’!
