Radio - Sunday November 19, 2017



This is our fall fundraising show and as usual we started out with name that tune with Mr. Brown from the Prophesy from which for the first time since we have been doing this he guessed correctly. I played some more Specials related things because James was a ska DJ before getting into jungle. You can download the show here. You can pledge on line at www.ciut.fm.

ANTI- NOWHERE LEAGUE – Long shot Kick de Bucket by the Pioneers (Cleopatra)
SPECIALS – Long Shot Kick de Bucket (Live)
THE CONVENTRY AUTOMATICS - Wake Up (Receiver)

Many times on the shows we are doing tributes to punks who have passed away, but tonight we are going to play some hasher rock for Malcolm Young who passed away yesterday from dementia. There is no disputing that AC DC were a rock band, but they rocked like punks, so this is “Whole Lotta Rosie” because the only punk band that I ever saw do an AC DC cover was No SYSTEM from Boston and this is the song they covered.

AC DC - Whole Lotta Rosie (Albert)
NO SYSTEM - Coming Back (No Way)
CREATIVE ZERO - Rest in Peace (Unreleased)

Here are some songs about the love for radio

THE CLASH – This is Radio Clash (CBS)
B-SIDES – Underground Radio Stars (Radioactive)
BULLET PROOF LOVERS – I am my Radio (Ghost Highway)

The live recordings remain a staple on Equalizing-X-Distort. Tuesday nights we load in at the broadcast studio. Record as much as we can in about an hour and a half. Load out and then come back and do an interview, which all gets mixed and then mixed live on Sunday night as a feature of a local band usually. A lot of work goes into those sessions from all involved from the bands, to the volunteers to the broadcast. Rob, from Pure Pressure / the Protruders, who was in over the last six months talks about what it was like to come in and what it means for bands. We also recorded sessions with OUTCRY from Halifax, ALIEN BOYS from Vancouver, SICK OF SHIT from Hamilton, BLANK STARES, and DRAGGED IN from here

PURE PRESSURE - Same Old Act (CIUT)
PURE PRESSURE - CIUT ID (CIUT)
PROTRUDERS - Principal John (CIUT)
PROTRUDERS ID – CIUT ID (CIUT)

Alex from SAGO / Sofistifucks and Chad also from Sago came in to answer phones. Alex has had a big influence on the show in terms of turning us on to programming ideas from live bands to interviews to checking out CIUT programs. Chad talks about recording here and about doing a show a Brock. They let us play a new song by SAGO

SAGO – Los Ojos (Unreleased)
PATTI SMITH GROUP – So You Wanna Be (A Rock n Roll Star)
THE MONSIEURS – Suburban Girls (Slovenly)

GUTARA KYO – Romantic (Slovenly)
JEAN DADDY – Let’s Ride Boys (Self-Released)
THE RIPTIDES – Goodbye Hawaii (Self-Released)

Every month we pick a Top 10 of latest releases and here are some of my favourite releases in the last six months.

RAT CAGE – No Consolation (La Vida Es Un Mus)

Equalizing-X-Distort features a demo every week, which is an early recording and usually a band’s most exciting recording. In the last six months we featured demos by RASHOMON (DC), PLASTIC HEADS (Toronto), PROM NITE (Toronto),
NINOS RATA (Montreal), BOOTLICKER (Kamloops), QUE LASTIMA (Toronto), CHARGED SS (Mexico), IRON EYE (PEI), and LION’s SHARE (St. John’s).
