Former Sidewinder bassist Martin Craft has been making music under the name M.Craft for a number of years now. He recently relocated to the US and released an impressive third album named ‘Blood Moon’ from which we air the single ‘Chemical Trail’. Before that we revisit his previous life with three tracks from Sidewinder, a highly regarded indie/power-pop band who formed in Canberra in 1990. The band split 9 years later, leaving a legacy of two outstanding records and many memorable Australian shows.

I’m pleased to finally be able to air an interview with legendary outlaw country singer Joey Only. Joey has played over 2000 shows across Canada, both solo and with various incarnations of the Joey Only Outlaw Band. His previous record ‘Transgression Trail’ earned heavy rotation on campus/community radio across Canada, and his 2016 full length, ‘No More Trouble in the Peace’, is certainly set to do the same. I caught up with Joey recently at the Outlaw Lodge in Wells, BC, where Joey lives with his family.

We introduce listeners this week to the sublime sounds of Australian Indigenous roots musician Frank Yamma. Frank is a Pitjantjatjara man from Central Australia who speaks 5 languages and sings in both Pitjantjatjara and English. He is about to embark on a rare Canadian tour, with a performance at the Wise Hall in Vancouver on 11 August, followed by the Robson Valley Music Festival on 13th and 14th of August. You can hear tracks from Frank’s albums ‘Countryman’ (2010) and ‘Uncle’ (2014) at the top of this week’s show.

Our special guests this week are East-Vancouver band The Staggers and Jaggs! I caught up with four the members of this energetic gypsy-jazz/rock/blues ensemble at a Sunday morning cafe show in Williams Lake, BC. I was most surprised and pleased to discover that one of the band members hails from Tasmania! Tune in to hear a great chat with these interesting folk.
