Tonight's show happened in the shadow of the Italy v. England game. So we started off with a tribute to the game and to Italy for beating the Brits. John Di Marco, of Rubber Factory Records was in to guest host on the show, so we looked at the scene he grew up in which is York Region and he programmed a set of bands from Tennessee and we started withy bands from Florida (mostly Tampa). D'Arcy brought in a slew of new bands which included Needles because Martin is in town this week with Limp Wrist. And the demo feature was Damaged Goods, a great new two piece.

This is a Burning Love record release party.

Flyer - Friday, June 8th, 2012

Folks should really consider going to see this band who started 30 years ago in Marseille, France. It's not every day that a band from France is in town, let along one of this calibre. "Les enfants de l'Espoir" (The kids of Hope) has just been re-issued and I downloaded it earlier today. Reviews describe the band as a legendary oi band but I never expected the combination of this with the Clash and Madness influences. If you like bands like the Ruts you are going to love the Warrior Kids.

Kremlin studio 3 session

I wondered if this session was ever going to happen. CIUT is wiring in a new broadcast board into the Map Room at Hart House. How does this figure into our story? Some DJs on Tuesday night program their show from the Map Room in order that we might record in the traditional broadcast studio known as Studio 3. So the Station Manager called mid day to cancel the session, but then he figured out a two hour window that we could try. It usually takes us the entire three hours, but I didn’t want to cancel the session because there is so much effort put into scheduling that when one gets cancelled it puts a damper mood on all involved. So much so that it becomes difficult to do another session. I get there for 7:30 and I wait downstairs for the band members. Zack and Harry got a lift with their dad. But I wait downstairs for another half an hour for Ivan. Eventually Ivan finds the studio. He was waiting at the front of Hart House since 6:00pm. So we get going and we barely get the session squeezed out. I gotta say that these guys sound like they live Discharge if it isn’t obvious from the patches and tattoo. Zack plays a flying V that reminds me of Buzz from Direct Action, who were also a local Discharge inspired hardcore band. The band played these songs running into each other with a break after “Duped” and “No Work”. So it was like recording three songs. I do love the momentum that builds with songs running out of another. Here is Kremlin’s session.

1. Esprit de corps
2. Abuse Asylum
3. Rot
4. Duped
5. Why Should I?
6. Buried
7. Will you feed me
8. Unscrewed
9. No Work
10. Leave nothing alone
11. Kremlin

Punks and Rockers videotaped the session and has editted together four songs from the session.

Radio - Sunday June 3rd, 2012

We started out with the Sex Pistols "Friggin in a riggin'" because today Queen Elizabeth celebrated the Diamond Jubilee with a boat ride down the Thames River. Thirty years ago the Sex Pistols hired a boat and played "God Save the Queen" while sailing by Buckingham Palace and were arrested which prompted writing "Friggin' and a Riggin'" as a song for the "Great Rock 'n Roll Swindle". We do a top 10 for May 2012 in this show. D'Arcy programs sets on Japanese and Swedish hardcore. S.H.I.T. are featured in the demo segment at the end. Click to download or listen to the show.
