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…

* 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
