* Featuring an interview with Toronto-based Aussie hip-hop artist NoTiOn *

Last weekend I attended the Nettwerk Records moving sale and loaded up with some rarities including a press promo EP for the 2002 Neil Finn album ‘One All’.   The EP features live acoustic tracks, interspersed with highlights of an interview that was recorded with Neil at a Los Angeles radio station.  A track from Neil’s talented son Liam follows.

Neil Finn is an example of an artist who was deeply influenced by an older brother (Tim), when he was forming his musical sensibilities in New Zealand.   This is very similar to today’s interview – Toronto-based Aussie hip hop artist Notion.  In podcast #155 we interviewed Notion’s older brother Craig (Cee).  On today’s show Notion reveals more of the story of how two hip hop loving Australian brothers made their way to Eastern Canada, where they have overcome the odds to build a loyal following in both Montreal and Toronto.  Here’s looking forward to a west coast visit from the boys…

Also on the show are tracks from SHED who are releasing their latest record on Gabriola Island this weekend, and mi’ens, a new project from Kim of Vancouver band Reverter!

First up on the show are a handful of tracks from You Am I lead singer Tim Rogers, as we revisit the solo records ‘Ghosts Songs/Dirty Ron’ (2005) with his band The Temperance Union, and ‘The Luxury of Hysteria’ (2007).  I’m excited to track down the re-issues of the first three You Am I albums with bonus discs of b-sides and rarities which we’ll feature on the show in due course.

An extra-special interview today as Aboriginal hip hop artist and producer Adam Deane phones through from Edmonton, Alberta. Adam does some amazing work encouraging healthy lifestyles and well being for Aboriginal youth in his community through the Youth Expressions Workshop.   Tune in to hear Adam speak about his work and feature some of acts on his roster at Identity Records.   This is some impressive hip-hop with deeply positive lyrical messages.

Brightly are an electronic/folk trio from Melbourne who have a wonderful new single release called ‘Preflight Nerves’.  Check out the neat interactive Twitter video below!   And lots of great new music from British Columbia with a track from the band new SHED album and the CiTR radio debut of singer-songwriter Leonard Pennifold who treats us with two of his exuberant tracks from the album ‘Money Scars.’   Super-energetic all-female acts Hooves and Bushtit are playing together in Vancouver this weekend before Bushtit embarks on their first ever tour.  Enjoy the tunes!

* Featuring the classic ‘Paralytic Tonight, Dublin Tomorrow’ EP  by The Saints (1980) and a LIVE phone interview with Jack and Lisa from Gabriola Island band SHED *

I stumbled across an essential CD box-set at Zulu Records the past week containing the first three  records from the second incarnation of The Saints following their split with EMI.  Chris Bailey soldiered on and formed a new band in London, England and immediately recorded the ‘Paralytic Tonight, Dublin Tomorrow’ EP, which you can here in full today’s show!  Taken from the box-set liner notes:  ‘This is the sound of somebody that wants to/has to make records rather than fulfill a release schedule…It is raw, the sound rough, open and passionate.’

This week is our second feature on the upcoming Red Jam Slam, a celebration of First Nations musicians and spoken word artists, that is taking place in Vancouver on 14 February.  Today we feature two new tracks from the upcoming second album by SHED from Gabriola Island, who are playing the Slam (the rollicking ‘Last Call’ is a must hear!). And joining us on the phone for a chat is husband and wife team Jack and Lisa – guitar/vox and drums respectively – of this wonderfully eclectic band.

The Saints – ‘Simple Love’ [AU]
The Saints – ‘Don’t Send Me Roses’ [AU]
The Saints – ‘Miss Wonderful’ [AU]
