More from The Meanies! This week we play through the entire ‘In Search of…’ EP from 1992. Perhaps you’ll fall in love with their infectious off-kilter melodies and cutting riffs like I did many years ago. They’re certainly not the most prolific band (no full length recordings since ’93) but you could still catch them playing shows in Melbourne to this day.

Gold Fields are playing Vancouver next Saturday night at Fortune Sound Club. We did some on air ticket giveaways on the show today and during the week, the first 3 people to email ozstranded@fastmail.fm can also receive free tickets to the show!

I’m excited to air a track from the debut EP from Irish ex-pat Amergin.   I met Amergin at an open-mike a number of months back and I was really taken with his heart-felt acoustic tunes.  At that point he’d not recorded anything despite having a plentiful supply of self-penned numbers.  He finally texted me today with news that he had finally recorded his debut EP!  Keep an eye out for Amergin at upcoming shows in the city of Vancouver…

The Meanies – ‘Wonderland’ [AU]
The Meanies – ‘Monopoly Money’ [AU]
The Meanies – ‘Once Again’ [AU]
The Meanies – ‘House Of Bassinet’ [AU]
The Meanies – ‘Round In Circles’ [AU]
The Meanies – ‘Update’ [AU]
The Meanies – ‘Keep The Balance’ [AU]
Vance Joy – ‘Riptide’ [AU]
Gold Fields – ‘Dark Again’ [AU]
Gold Fields – ‘Meet My Friends’ [AU]
Courtney Barnett –  ‘History Eraser’ [AU]
Scott Rudd – ‘Feeling Small’ [CA]

Sarah Burton – ‘How Good You Are’ [CA]
Lightning Dust – ‘Diamond’ [CA]

* Featuring an interview with Alex Alegria, director of the Mariachi Festival Canada *

Chris Basarba of Basone Guitars has been filling me in of late about the history of Vancouver punk and hardcore and one of the bands he’s recommended is Sparkmarker.  I tracked down an archived recording of Sparkmarker playing ‘Live At Thunderbird Radio Hell’ on CiTR in 1991 and you can hear the song ‘Courage’ from this session at the top of the show.

This Saturday Vancouver plays host to the Mariarchi Festival Canada.  Alex Alegria, founder  of the festival, phones through today to inform the listeners about the origins of Mariarchi music in Mexico and to tell of his journey from busking as a new immigrant in Vancouver, to leader of Mariachi Los Dorados and hard-working festival director.

Sadly, one of Canada’s most impressive indie bands, The City Streets, is calling it a day, but not before releasing their swan-song LP ‘Pretenders’.  You can hear three tracks from this record on the show today.  MG

*Featuring more tracks from the ‘Smell My Finger’ re-issue by The Hard-Ons and interviews with Kim Churchill and Gumby from Benjalu, recorded backstage at Fortune Sound Club *

We start this evening’s show with some more tracks from the just-released ‘Smell My Finger’ re-issue by The Hard-Ons on Sydney’s seminal Citadel Records.   We’re going right back to the mid-80s when The Hard-Ons were first making waves for their infectiously catchy songs played at ear-splitting volume to punters in Sydney (and soon beyond).

Kim Churchill is back for an extensive Canadian tour and I caught up with this amazingly talented guitarist and young solo singer/songwriter, backstage at Fortune Sound Club in Vancouver.  Kim recorded a limited edition EP of tracks in an attic in Montreal on his last tour and I feature a couple of tracks from this special release (including the beautiful number ‘Sarah’ that he played here in Vancouver at the memorial for the late Todd Simko).

Supporting Kim on his tour is Gumby from the band Benjalu, playing solo.  I also recorded an interview with Gumby back stage at the gig.  MG
