At the top of this week’s show we feature three more bands listed on the most excellent article The History Of Australian Punk in 30 Tracks – The Black Diamonds, The Loved Ones and The Atlantics. We’re still in the 1960s with this list so plenty more bands to come!

We air a track that Melbourne-based guitar-pop outfit Twerps have contributed to the Thirty Days of Yes subscription mixtape of Australian bands. The tape was developed in response to the controversial Australian Marriage Law Postal Survey, and tape supports the LGBTQI+ community, particularly the youth community who don’t have a voice in the public debate. And lots of great new Canadian music including a track from Lisa Muswagon of Pimicikamak Cree Nation and a meticulously crafted violin piece from Respectful Child out of Saskatoon.

* RIP Todd Serious of The Rebel Spell *

This week marks 30 yrs since the release of Ed Kuepper‘s debut album ‘Electrical Storm’. We open the show with the album’s epic title track, followed by a track from the classic 1990 album Today Wonder and his acoustic reworking of The Saint’s classic ‘Brisbane (Security City).’

There is sad news to report this week as well. Todd Serious, front man of socially-conscious Vancouver punk band The Rebel Spell, was found dead last weekend following a tragic rock-climbing accident. We pay respect to Todd with two tracks from The Rebel Spell’s final two masterworks – ‘It’s A Beautiful Future’ and ‘Last Run’. RIP.

* Kristina Lao + Beaver Thomas LIVE in the CiTR studio *

We kick off this week’s show with a few songs from British Columbia’s favourite anarchist country singer Joey Only! Joey was in Vancouver this week for a triumphant homecoming show with his Outlaw Band at the historic Wise Hall.

And much of the show is devoted to showcasing the tunes of UK-based singer-songwriter Kristina Lao. Kristina, who spent some years living in both Australia and New Zealand, is visiting family in Vancouver and has time to join us this coming Sunday night for The Stranded Sunday Sessions #4 along with Leah Barley and M.Lund. Her exquisite vocals and literate songwriting are well displayed as she shares three original compositions LIVE in the studio (and a John Prine cover). And she is joined in the studio by new friend and guitarist Beaver Thomas, also of the John Pippus Band.

And we wrap up the show with the brand new single ‘Outta My Head’ from Australian musician Travis Caudle, which has been released by Spinning Blue Records.
