DeeCRACKS - I Need To Know (Self-Released)

The DEECRACKS are from Austria and will be in town in Mid-May. 

April 5th marked the 25 years since Kurt Cobain took his life. Grunge was already a sub genre of the punk and indie scene at that point and the scene would go on evolving in different ways. Like all anniversaries many radio stations did mini tributes that week to Nirvana, which involved brief editorials and playing "Smells Like Teen Spirit". Rob Ferraz took an in depth look at Seattle and the bands that developed that sound and the scene in tonight's show. Download the show here.

Radio - Sunday, April 14th, 2019

Tonight's show features a long form interview with the Reaction. The Reaction were from St. John's, Newfoundland with punk energy and mod sensibility. Technically the second punk band from the rock but a band the first band that took being a punk band seriously touring the island and later the mainland. The story starts with Mike Fisher seeing the Viletones, the Poles and BB Gabor among others when he had moved to Toronto. He went back to St. John's and started the Reaction. The Reaction would record many times initially above a record shop called Echo Music. They were able to release a single while still around called "On the Beach" on their own Neutron Records label. Recently Supreme Echo, released a single called "East End Rockers" which collects songs from each of the band's studio sessions and that's where we start this interview, with an explanation of the single's title.

This interview was conducted in December with Mike Fisher (over the phone), the singer and bassist and Terry Carter, their original drummer. Terry was also a founding member for Da Slyme so we talk about them and we also cover places to play in the early St. John's scene. Terry is a sound engineer here at the station but I only found out that after the interview was over. It is kind of crazy the caliber of people involved in this station. Terry was blowing me away with his musical knowledge in the interview.

EDDIE AND THE HOT RODS - Do Anything You Wanna Do (Island)
THE RAMONES - Rockaway Beach (Sire)
THE VILETONES - Screamin`Fist (Vile)
THE JAM - All Around the World (Polydor)
THE REACTION - Get the Rods Out (Supreme Echo)
DA SLYME - Newfie Rastaman (Loo Enterprises Inc.)
DA SLYME - On Chord Punk Rock Song (Loo Enterprises Inc.)
