Two months back we interviewed Mark Black about his bibliophonic "No Means No: Going Nowhere". The book came out last year and is difficult to get, but Mark recommends you check your local library. Above is a player for the show that was mixed with material. there was a computer malfunction during the show and so the interview goes off the air but we did play the Hanson Brothers while we recovered the computer. You can hear the interview on it's own.

I noticed that the player is a bit glitchy so if you wanted to download an MP3 of the show click on the word MP3 above.

Rob Ford throws a black party every year where he bribes his constituents with Bar-B-Que food. It is called "Ford Fest". The name of this show is a pot shot at that. This show is also a record release show for the new Shit From Hell single "Mayor on Crack".  I heard Strange Attractor also have a release coming out tonight. And the Cola Heads are opening the whole thing up. The stunned look matches the Mayor who suffered another loss this week when the person he hired to head up the Toronto Housing Authority was fired for essentially creating a workplace environment that was unworkable. The Mayor threatened that there would be "chaos" and that he would re-hire him when he was voted back in. Wishful thinking and a part of a long list of Ford gravy train as his cronies continue to get payouts for jobs they are unqualified to do.

CIUT's transmitter stopped working last week. We have been operating off a temporary transmitter. The funding drive is all about raising twice as much money so that we can buy a new transmitter and have it installed. The theme for the campaign continues with "Sound of the City" but I reinterpreted it to be "Sound in our city" so that we could focus on some of the upcoming shows coming to town one of whic is the Stage Bottles next Saturday. This anti-fascist oi band has a great song called "Work Together" that rallies people together for a common cause and right now that is with getting CIUT back on air. You can donate by going to

STAGE BOTTLES - Work Together (Insurgence)

Ewan at Embrace Productions programmed a punk show with us when we were back at CHRY. He knows the important roles that campus community radio plays. He also knows the challenges of fundraising and has offered up five pair of tickets for the Reagan Youth / Dayglos show on May 16th of the Upstarts show on May 31st. We still have some tickets to give away for this so if you make a donation to CIUT and want a pair of tickets to one of these two shows send me an e-mail at

ANGELIC UPSTARTS - Kids On The Street (Dojo)
REAGAN YOUTH - usa (New Red Archives)

DAYGLO ABORTIONS - Kill the Hosers / Religious Bumfucks (Fringe)

Lots of people have helped out with this current drive. Alex, the drummer from the Sofistifucks, and his friend Nick came in last night to helop answer phones and come in on-air with updates on the phone room activity. We played something new from the Sofistifucks.

THE SOFISTIFUCKS - Memento Mori (Self-Released)
THE BUREAUCRATS - Grown Up Age (Ugly Pop)

Aldo from Punks and Rockers films all of the studio 3 sessions. He also edits them together and has started putting together limited edition DVDs of these sessions. For this drive he has put together a 2012 DVD which features footage of Pick Your Side, Hassler, Direct Approach, The Groggies, Careers In Science, TV Freaks, Wrong Generation, Born Wrong, Demolition, Violent Future, Kremlin, Suicide Dates, and Sids Kids which had Chris Hate from the Viletones, Mickey Skin from the Curse, Barrie Farrel from the Existers, Zero from ZRo4, and Fergus Hamilton from the Basics. He also created a 2013 DVD with footage from Abyss, Valley Boys, Anti-Vibes, Wastoids, Snake Charmer, Sluts On 45, Dead Mouth, Smooth Brain, Purity Control, Absolut, and S.H.I.T. if you make a $25 donation to CIUT you can have one of these or both for $50. E-mail me at with your name and address once you have made a donation. Then we played some bands on those DVDs. 

BORN WRONG - Destroying The Family (Schizoprhenic)
S.H.I.T. - Mind Fuck (Self-Released)
NERVOUS TALK - Introductions (Mammoth Cave)

Greg Dick, a long time advocate of the show, donated to our show and to Real Cool Time radio and we pointed out that you could ledge to more than one show as a way of demonstrating support for more than one show. This drive is fundamentally different in that we are raising money together to pay for a transmitter. We are all in this dire senario of having a compromised transmission until we can get that fixed. Help us be heard by donating at

CAREER SUICIDE - Brought to the Brink (Deranged)
STRANGE ATTRACTOR - Litty oh Litty (Red Lounge)

CIUT is one of few independent voices left on air. Many media outlets have found themselves muzzled or compromised with what they can say about the lawyer. We express the frustration of what it is like to a Mayor that can't make it in to work most days creating dysfunction from the top down. Ugly Pop is throwing a This ain't the Ford fest with this song by Shit From Hell being released. Support independent voices on the radio.

SHIT FROM HELL - Mayor on Crack (Ugly Pop)
STIV BATORS DEAD BOYS - Son of Sam (Ugly Pop)

TV FREAKS played a benefit show organzied by the Suicide Dates  a few drives back. They have a new album. The show has the unique ability to record bands live in a Peel Sessions like setting. Please support these cool forms of documentation of the local scene by giving to CIUT so we can broadcast again.

TV FREAKS - Phone / Salvation (Schizophrenic)
VALLEY BOYS - Feel Like Shit (Self-Released)
VCR - One Trick Dog (CIUT)

The federal government has gutted the Ministry of Environment to bury the evidence of climate change. Meanwhile punk tells the story on things like air quality. Recently the feds have cut funding to the CBC as a way of getting rid of more adverse coverage of their resource extration policies. Stay informed by keeping CIUT on the air.

NO PROBLEM - Suffocate City (Deranged)
SNAKEPIT - Hogtown Blues (Self-Released)

Unbelievers studio 3 session

I have spent the last few days doing all sorts of research on this little known band from here called Unbelievers. They have five recording, but the recent one that came out last year is the one I am most familiar with. Initially, Unbelievers were a band that reminded me of X-Ray Spex and Vice Squad. I ran into Keiran the bass player while looking for everybody before the session and he was telling me that not too long ago he was rehearsing with Vice Squad. Just a weird coincidence. Keiran has been playing for the Unbelievers for the past six months but even newer to the line up is Johnny, the drummer. This band is Jenn’s vision and she has worked with members of Screeching Weasel and the Queers on their first recording. She has even joined the Queers on stage for a version of “Punk Rock Girls?. In the interview we talked about bands like Josie Cotton, the Muffs, and the Ramones as inspirations. In studio 3 I was reminded of the singing style of the Bayonettes and Zoe’s love for the Avengers.
Daihbid James had interviewed Jenn Unbe on Moondog Ballroom before and it being a Tuesday night Daihbid was at the station when the band arrived. They got to play catch up while we got to setting up.

As the band warmed up and went through the set we started getting takes of the song that the band were not entirely happy with. The set featured songs from the latest release which included:

1. Real Slow Hand
2. I Don’t Like You
3. Hangover Song
4. Puppy Lovin’
5. Apathy
6. In the Crowd
7. Wedding Song
8. Wish I was that Girl
9. Cuz I’m a Creep

There was also some new unreleased material which included:

1. Sumo Tsunami
2. Wasted Youth
3. Home

After 34 takes we finally had everything recorded and we had run out of time. Then we made Jenn recorded some IDs for the station and the show. These are what we came up with…

1. Cuz I’m a Creep CIUT ID
2. Wedding Song CIUT ID
3. Wedding Song lyrics CIUT ID
4. 21 CIUT ID
5. Real Slow Hand EXD ID

Remarks about how hard Johnny hits those drums were going back and forth which is a common description, but the proof was in the pudding. After the session the interview studio was covered in drum stick pieces and shredded wood bits that looked like a wood chipper had been at work earlier.

This session was videotaped by Aldo from Punks ‘n Rockers. Here is a medley of a few songs from the session.
