* The Legion Of Flying Monkeys Horn Orchestra live in the CiTR studio *

Today on the show we are joined by six members of a Vancouver institution – the highly original and remarkable band known as The Legion Of Flying Monkeys Horn Orchestra! On a fateful day in 2002 ‘Mr Fireman’ decided to create a horn from a stick of elderberry wood. He was impressed with how the horn played and this inspired him to form a band which was to be composed of local enthusiasts playing a selection of his home-made instruments.  Tossed into the mix of the band’s package is sharp social commentary in the lyrics of the band’s joyfully played and harmonized tunes.  Local Vancouverites can regularly experience the thrills of a live Legion Of Flying Monkeys show and the band has even travelled as far as Spain to spread the word.  Mr Fire Man and friends play four of their tunes live in the studio today!

Melbourne’s Vance Joy is the latest Australian artist to pass through Vancouver on tour.   We did a ticket giveaway live on air today and you can still win a ticket if you tweet to @ozstranded. The show is at The Media Club on Sept 13.

Today we have the perfect live studio guest!  Singer songwriter and photographer Scott Rudd is a resident of New York but he has family roots in Vancouver and he also spent 13 years in Tweed Heads, Australia.   Scott was passing through Vancouver this past week to play some shows and see friends and family.  He found some time to pop into the CiTR studio and play some of this brooding and delicately crafted acoustic tunes.

We wrap up the show with two Canadian First Nations artists.  Firstly, Kristi Lane Sinclair who played both the Victory Square Block Party last weekend as well as this week’s ‘Live At Lunch‘ spot.  And Trent Agecoutay will be interviewed on the show next week as part of the Red Jam Slam ‘Resonating Reconciliation’ radio special on CiTR.

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 Kris and Shannon from Vancouver band Blackberry Wood*

We kick off the show with the lead track to the self-titled release by Polly, the latest solo project from Vancouver music scene veteran Paul Leahy.  I highly recommend catching this guitar hero and brilliant tunesmith in live action!  Seminal Melbourne punk band The Meanies are up next, with a play-through of their ‘Just What You Need’ 7″, which I discovered in the CiTR record library.  Another 7″ to come for another show.

Gold Fields and Vance Joy are two Australian acts passing through Vancouver in the next month.  Stay tuned for ticket giveaway opportunities in upcoming shows.

Our special guests today are frontman Kris and newcomer bassist Shannon, from Vancouver-based alt-country gypsy band Blackberry Wood!  Along with some choice cuts from Blackberry Wood’s two official high-energy releases, you’ll hear Kris and Shannon joyfully reveal some fascinating tales of life on the road, including the remarkable series of events that led to the band being invited to play at the Glastonberry Festival in England….
