* 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.
