We started off the show with an interview and in studio recording with a new grind band from Toronto called Hangin' Tuff that also loves hockey. Think Yacopsae meets Hanson Brothers. This session was recorded a few weeks ago.

I had heard a lot of stories on the independence vote in Scotland so I thought I would put together material honouring Scottish punk.

Radio - Sunday, September 7th, 2014



This session was recorded this past Tuesday. Look for the blog post on the session so that you can download the songs. The Victim Party are a great new band with loads of melody and a bunch of thought put into vocal arrangements. But having said all that they are no barbershop quartet. They have two guitarists giving them a super heavy sound. One of them guitarists (Pat) was in Hostage Life and I can't help but hear their sound in comparison to that. Especially because Colin is one of the singers. But Tabi's Delta 72 like vocals go a long way with giving this band a different dimension. The band has three releases out to date and the latest one was re-recorded in our studio 3 for this session. But you can find all their recordings at http://victimparty.bandcamp.com/

Victim Party studio 3 session


It has taken us a while to book Victim Party. They are one of the biggest bands we have recorded with two singers, two guitarists and a rhythm section. Colin and Pat have recorded a studio 3 session or two with Hostage Life, but that was back at the basement at St. George. The third floor digs allow us to isolate things like drums and guitar amps, which help at the mixing stage. But we had five plus people in the broadcast studio and somehow it worked. 

The band was set on recording their latest LP along with one additional song. The full length is called "Getting to know the Victim Party" and has a few themes that weave the material together. But each member, past and present has a song about them and in a very literal way this serves as in introduction to the members of the band. These songs include:

- An evening with Colin (shouter)
- Adam Cook, Extinguished Gentleman (original bassist)
- Weekend at Kyle's (drummer)
- Tabi Irani, Tragically Fascist or Fascistically Tragic (singer)
- Matt Woo (and you can too) (bassist)
- You're Great, I'm Dean Richards (guitarist)
- Patrick Mathers cuts the sleeves off your expectations (guitarist)

There is an opening number which is about a party and is called "Spring Mixer". And there is a song that predicts the band's break up called "Irreconcilable Similarities". The additional song is "100 Assholes" which is a song pulled together from two earlier songs which were "100 Laces" and "Poets and other assholes". These original songs can be found at http://victimparty.bandcamp.com/album/the-worst-party-on-earth-digital.

Colin's singing was familiar and amazing. Tabi's vocals were sung and held in a soulful way that sounded like Delta 72 or Poly Styrene of X-Ray Spex. The two singing styles together is unique and as we went through the songs I realized that this band spends a lot of time on vocal arrangements. That is true of my most favourite punk bands like the Clash, Stiff Little Fingers, the Angelic Upstarts and it is amazing to hear it in a local band. But I find the vocal arrangements are a lot more complex in Victim Party's material,  in a way that invites singing along, head bobbing and foot stomping. 

A two guitar attack between Dean and Pat make for a full sound. Matt Woo on bass and Adam's brother Kyle plays bass. Adam was the original bass player in this band and played with Colin in Marilyn's Vitamins. This may be helpful in some family tree sort of way on the scene in the future.

This session was recorded by Ian Wilkinson who also recorded the Hostage Life session a few years back. 

Aldo from Punks and Rockers videotaped the session and we will link to the clip when it is available.

MRR Interview - S.H.I.T.

S.H.I.T. just went out to California to play a few shows. This brief little tour coincided with the release of their two 7”s, “Collective Conscious” (on Iron Lung) and “Generation Shit” (on Lengua Armada). Json Halal of MRR interviewed them on this tour and martin Sorrendeguy took photos, some of which have been seen in photospreads on Not Dead Yet. The band talks about things like :
-       Jaybo’s artwork on the new releases
-       the band’s commitment to building a local punk community
-      S.H.I.B.G.B.’s which represents Toronto most recent DIY space
-      S.H.I.T.M.A.S. fest, and
-      The band’s future plans to write an LP and tour Europe

The band resisting slagging Montreal. You can download a PDF of the interview which is worth the read and the new photos of the band.
