Guns n Roses covered the Rose Tattoo classic ‘Nice Boys’ on their 1988 record Lies and they invited legendary, diminutive front-man Angry Anderson on stage at their recent Sydney stadium show to blast through a version of the track.  You can hear this track from the 1978  self titled album, and two other Rose Tattoo classics at the top of show.  We debut the new single ‘Head Above Water’ from punchy Melbourne-based two-piece This Way North. And lots of great new Canadian music in the 2nd half of the show including tracks from Toronto-based acts Julie and the Wrong Guys (featuring Eamon McGrath) and Century Palm.

* Featuring an interview with Geoff Berner about Vancouver’s 5th annual Accordion Noir Festival and Sara Lapsley interviews Pete and Donal from glam/punk band Flash Bastard.  The 3rd and final part of the interview will be broadcast next week *

This week I finally had the chance to interview one of the Canadian musicians that I most admire – the ever-provocative and wildly entertaining Geoff Berner. Geoff’s most recent release ‘Victory Party’ (Mint Records), reveals the song-writing smarts of a real folk music boundary-pusher.  And I highly recommend his ‘Live In Oslo’ release from 2006 which records a memorable evening of Berner’s trade-mark accordion-filled mayhem and biting social commentary.  Today on the show you can hear Geoff speak about the Accordion Noir Festival, a now yearly event, which is taking place in Vancouver from Thursday through to Sunday this week.

And we have an extra-special gift on the show today as Sara Lapsley interviews Donal and Pete from Vancouver glam/punk band Flash Bastard.  Charismatic front man Donal Finn reveals some comical episodes on the road with Motley Crue and Scorpions back in the day when the band were signed to Nikki Sixx’s Americoma label.  Stay tuned next week for Part 3 of the interview!

On today’s show you will also get a chance to hear a few tracks from much lauded Calgary art-rock band Women, who are sadly no longer with us following the untimely death of Chris Reimer.  And right at the top of the show are three tracks from Australia’s 70s blues-boogie hard-rock era.  Enjoy!  MG
