We introduce listeners to Melbourne band Camp Cope, Night People from Vancouver and Compassion Gorilla from Victoria, BC whose upbeat tracks feature a most excellent brass section.

* Featuring D.O.A *

Given it’s May Day today, it’s fitting to return to the music of D.O.A. Joe Keithley formed this politically aware and now long-running hard-core band in 1978. And as you will hear from the two tracks we play from their recent live album ‘Welcome To Chinatown’, the current version of the band is as blistering as ever. The years have also not diminished the power of Keithley’s progressive lyrical attack. Keep an ear out for more new music from D.O.A before the year is out.

And it’s New Zealand Music Month!  So we kick off the celebrations with two new tracks apiece from established Kiwi bands Scalper and Shihad, and introduce listeners to quality new AAA Records signing Radioglo.

*Happy holidays!*

The Fauves are a hidden gem of Australian independent music.  Having played 1000s of shows since 1988 and mastering a potent blend of catchy alternative rock tunes with clever and at times cynical lyrics, the Fauves deserve far more accolades than their modest record sales have provided.  The ’15 Minutes To Rock’ documentary, following the band on the road from 1997 to 1999, is a wonderful snap-shot of an uncertain period in their career when they were preparing their major label followup and feeling the strain of touring.  You can hear a 5min segment of the film on the show!
