* Featuring Part Two of an interview with Chris Basaraba, luthier and proprietor of Basone Guitars in Vancouver, BC *
This week you can hear a selection of tracks by Perth band, The Triffids spanning the years 1983 to 1989. The Triffids, who formed 1978, were a literate band and much-lauded for their gorgeously evocative song ‘Wide Open Road’, which remains prominent in ‘best Australian songs’ lists. The band also found a measure of acclaim in Europe and Scandinavia. Prolific songwriter and frontman, Dave McComb tragically passed away at age 37, after the band had broken up, following injuries sustained in a car accident.
Next up are tracks by two Australian artists featured at this year’s SXSW festival in Austin Texas! – Blackchords and Emma Louise. Here is a full list of all the Aussie acts making the trip to Austin this year.
Podcast #132 featured part 1 of an interview with Chris Basaraba, luthier and proprietor of Basone Guitars in Vancouver. We’re pleased to present the remainder of the interview today. You can hear Chris explain what folks can expect if they seek the services of a properly trained luthier. Chris also reveals some of his favourite Vancouver hardcore bands who he has supported over the years.
Rounding out the show is some great new Canadian music, firstly with ‘Stranded’ favourites The City Streets, from Montreal and their tune expressing anger over the residential schools system. We finish with a brand new track by Vancouver-based singer-songwriter Jamison Troy 🙂
