* Featuring tracks from the Ugly Pop Records series of garage-rock 7″ re-issues, and an ‘Arts Extra’ special on ‘Pleased To Meet You: Introductions by Gwyn Hanssen Pigott’ which is showing at the Museum of Anthropology until March 2013 *

Some more tracks from the Ugly Pop Records re-issue series on the show today!  We’re hearing from two Canadian garage rock bands from the 60s – The Northwest Company (Vancouver) and A Passing Fancy (Toronto), as well as the only recorded output of Edmonton’s Rock N Roll Bitches, whose 7″ Wild Wild West was recorded in 1980.  Vancouver listeners can purchase copies of these 7″s from Moloch Records.

We have  brief detour into the world of visual arts today with a special on ‘Pleased To Meet You: Introductions by Gwyn Hanssen Pigott’ which is showing at the Museum of Anthropology (MOA) in Vancouver until March 2013.  Gwyn Hanssen Pigott is a world-renowned Australian ceramicist who was invited to pick out objects from the MOA collection and place them together in an exhibit, purely by reference to form and aesthetics.  I attended the opening of the exhibit a few weeks back and recorded an interview with Gwyn herself as well as a curator of the MOA.  You can hear those interviews today, as well as my reflections on the exhibit.

And it’s Christmas time, so Paul Kelly‘s classic ‘How To Make Gravy’ is a compulsory spin today! You can also hear the heartfelt classic ‘Christmas Eve (with you)’ by Peter Foldy and a brand new free-for-download Christmas tune by Sloan 🙂

* Featuring tracks from Vancouver punk legends Pointed Sticks and Part 1 of an interview with Chris Basaraba, luthier and proprietor of Basone Guitar Shop in Vancouver  *

This Saturday night, legendary first-generation Vancouver punk band Pointed Sticks play their final ever show at the Rickshaw. After splitting in 1981 following adventures and mishaps in England, much touring in Canada and the recording of their  album, ‘Perfect Youth’, the band remarkably reformed in 2006 for a run of Canadian and Japanese dates.  The second coming of the Pointed Sticks also led to the ‘Three Wrongs Make a Left’ LP release which holds up strongly when compared to their original youthful recording.  Today on the show you can hear three tracks apiece from each of these records.

Chris Basaraba is a true rarity – a highly skilled luthier who apprenticed in the traditional trade of guitar construction during the 90s before opening his own custom-made guitar shop – Basone Guitars – in East Vancouver. I had a chance to chat with Chris this week about what it’s like to be working as a luthier in today’s world. You can hear part 1 of this interview on the show today.
