The Frogs  Sailors Board Me Now   Options Bananimals  Self Released  2009    I was kind of obsessed by this song when it came out. Oh, ribald seafaring man love! The Frogs were an American rock music band founded in 1980, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, by brothers Jimmy and Dennis Flemion. The brothers mainly wrote and performed short, catchy pop songs, but they are also known for their improvised home recordings which are delivered in a comedic style, and often include controversial issues such as race, religion, and sexuality (notably homoeroticism). A history of strife has hindered the band, although a devoted fan base that includes many well-known musicians has supported the group.    0:05:01 (Pop-up)

The Stolen Minks  Reflexes   Options High Kicks  Self Released  2008    The Stolen Minks are a three-piece Canadian garage punk band who have been praised as "Halifax's answer to The Gossip and The Detroit Cobras".

Dúo Las Perlas de Huancavelica  Vaca Ratay   Options Puro Tayta Shanti  Little Axe Records  60's? / 2019    Little Axe Records is both a record label and storefront in Portland, Oregon. The label was started by Warren Hill in 2011 after parting ways with Mississippi Records... Little Axe Records primarily focuses on reissuing small pressings of international music, putting out records by artists that never had a release outside of their native countries, were self-released, or whose music was initially intended to be shared only with friends. “...I like to focus more on stuff that people aren’t clamoring for because maybe they are not familiar with it.” This song is described by the label as “Andean party music,” Puro Tayta Shanti is a compilation of a type of Peruvian folk music called santiagos, which center around the “fiesta de Santiago,” an ancestral celebration honoring nature and cattle. With that in mind, the record opens with “Vaca Ratay,” a mind-bending listen where feminine voices mix with the loud mooing of a cow. “[It’s] a simple and powerful song that is almost a blueprint for other santiagos of the region,” says Peruvian-American DJ and musician Rick Omonte, who put the compilation together with Hill.    0:29:22 (Pop-up)
The Bug, Jason Williamson, Sleaford Mods  Stoat   Options Treetop  Ninja Tune  2021    Jason Williamson:______ "Both Stoat and Treetop tread the usual path lyrically for me, nonsense mixed in with little micro story’s of whatever. Excuses to get out frustrations and anger. I’ve been talking with Kevin for a few years now as regards doing some tunes. Matching something to The Bugs music was always on the cards, a chance to shape different vocal approaches to a certain degree which is deffo evident on Stoat I think. Love both tunes. Proper. Bang into this collab.” The Bug:_________ "Reared on Mark E Smith and Crass, how could i not be blown away by Sleaford Mods? Since first hearing 'Austerity Dogs', I was smitten by Jason's razor sharp lyricism and punk as f-ck delivery. So when we first chatted on Twitter a few years ago, casually raving about a mutual love of anti-social American hip hop, we pretty much immediately discussed the idea of a collab. And tho' it took a few years to actually realise the concept, 2021 seems like the purrrfect time in terms of global social meltdown and the release of my album 'Fire'. It’s been a joy to work with Jason on these tracks and we are already discussing the idea of more to follow…”  *   0:31:43 (Pop-up)
Felini  Zum Zum Zum Zazoeira   Options The Sexual Life Of The Savages: Underground Post-Punk From São Paulo, Brasil  Soul Jazz  1987 / 2005    "Fellini was one the most notorious São Paulo underground acts from the mid-80's. They recorded some of the most notable lo-fi albums of the period. Fellini was made up of journalist Cadão Volpato on vocals and multi-instrumentalist and journalist Thomas Pappon (also from Smack and formerly of Voluntários da Pátria) plus Ricardo Salvagni and Jayr Marcos. They fused European post punk influences with electro bossa, drum machine patterns and synths."    0:35:22 (Pop-up)

Stump  Charlton Heston   Options A Fierce Pancake  Ensign Records / Chrysalis Records  1988    "Their only album, A Fierce Pancake, (named after a term meaning 'deep conundrum' in The Third Policeman by Flann O'Brien) released in 1988 was recorded in Berlin and London produced by Holger Hiller with assistance from Stephen Street and was mixed by Hugh Jones after an unsuccessful session with US producer John Robie. The recording process was, however, often fraught with arguments amongst the band as to the sound and direction of the album."    0:44:59 (Pop-up)

Music behind DJ:
The Third Eye Foundation 

Corpses As Bedmates   Options


Merge / Domino 



Matt Elliott, A.K.A. The Third Eye Foundation makes often harrowing & haunting music, both instrumentally and vocally.

Alex Cameron  Sara Jo   Options Sara Jo Single  Secretly Canadian  2021    I like playing songs that make Derek laugh. These are excellent lyrics. Considering my trip involved antivaxxers, the chorus resonated with me. Alex Cameron is an Australian musician, singer and songwriter. Born and raised in Sydney, he is best known for his solo career, a high-concept act in which Cameron initially adopted the persona of a failed entertainer. He has written songs for the Killers, which is odd because this song is good but most of theirs are terrible.  *   1:10:09 (Pop-up)
Shalabi Effect  Boardwalk at Apollo Beach   Options Shalabi Effect  Alien8 Recordings  2000    "Shalabi Effect is free improvisation. This does not mean atonal noise, although atonality and beautiful noises are ever present; it also doesn’t mean that there is no melody, but the melodies are rarely if ever known ahead of time. The base sound comes from a combination of Middle Eastern modes, played by Sam Shalabi on the Oud, and the cinematic psychedelic style of Anthony Seck."    1:13:14 (Pop-up)
Pan Amsterdam (feat. Jason Williamson (Prod. Coup Diablo))  Hannibal Lecture   Options HA Chu  Def Pressé  2020    Sleaford Mods frontman Jason Williamson guests on this track by New York hip-hop artist Pan Amsterdam, who is also lead trumpeter of Iggy Pop's touring band    1:22:32 (Pop-up)

Electrelane  Film Music (remix by Jagz Kooner)   Options Film Music EP  Let's Rock! Records  2001    I do love this band... Plus: "Jagz Kooner Record Producer / Remixer Jagz Kooner is a Record Producer, Remixer who has worked with Primal Scream, Oasis, Kasabian, Reverend & Makers, Soulwax, The Kills, AutoKratz, The Whip and an extensive list of some of the most influential bands of the last 20 years"    1:40:30 (Pop-up)
Whitey  Animal Kingdom   Options The Times They Are Deranging  No! Label  2021    TFEB favourite Whitey is back with a new release! Terminally grumpy and pissed at "the man" (and rightfully so!), the artist whose real name is Nathan Joseph Wonnacott continues to delight.  *   1:45:39 (Pop-up)
Sweeping Promises  Pain Without a Touch   Options Pain Without a Touch Single  Feel It  2021    In 2020 this band released an album called Hunger For a Way Out. This is my new favourite band this week. I love them. They are from Lawrence, Kansas.  *   1:49:54 (Pop-up)
Wet Leg  Oh No   Options Too Late Now/Oh No  Domino Records  2021    Is it Cate Le Bon? NO! It's Wet Leg sounding a lot like Cate Le Bon. We love both bands so this makes it super great!  *   1:52:19 (Pop-up)
Ausmuteants  Echo Beach   Options Mates Rates / Echo Beach 7"  Hozac Records  2015    Possibly exceeds the excellence of the original by Martha and the Muffins. Our theme song, and Ausmuteants truly do it major justice.    1:54:51 (Pop-up)
Stompin' Tom Connors  Farewell to Nova Scotia   Options Stompin Tom at the Gumboot Clogeroo  ole records  1977        2:00:23 (Pop-up)

Anyone remember the Malted Milk chocolate bar? I think it was a Neilson or Cadbury.

@tyler I do. It was a bit like a Three Musketeers bar, no?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:40pm DJ Babs:

  8:44pm Tyler:

Isn't a malted with an egg cracked in it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:45pm DJ Babs:

I have googled that for you Tyler and hat Is a Malt? A malt, or a "malted shake," is just a milkshake made with the addition of malted milk powder. This gives the shake a bit of a toasty, rich taste that enhances classic milkshake flavors like chocolate or vanilla. It also creates a thicker consistency
Avatar 8:45pm Cameron Pretendre:

OMG - I was obsessed with Apache Burger 🍔 when I was younger.

@tyler I have episodes recorded to VHS somewhere. But, don’t have a VHS player anymore. 😂
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:54pm Mr Fab:

Very late '80s, a friend of mine who worked at a record store pointed to an album by a band called Stump entitled "A Fierce Pancake." "You'd probably like this," he smirked. "It's this really weird kinda Beefheart British silliness. No one here likes it. " I bought it on the spot. Great album, esp. the American version with the single 'Buffalo' added.

  8:56pm shellioh:

Another group I quite like that gets little notice these days is The Wolfgang Press. I remember that crazy video for 'Kansas' which I also saw on City Limits inspired me to go out and get their album and several more over the years.

G'day Babs & Derek Beached!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:44pm Mr Fab:

Not only have I never listened to John Prine, I don’t know anyone who has. He’s considered one of those guys like John Hiatt or Graham Parker that only music critics like. But that was great!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:44pm DJ Babs:

LOL it is true! I sadly did not hear about him until he died, lol
Avatar 9:45pm VinylVillainSean:

I liked John Prine :(
  9:46pm Tyler:

There's some John Prine I really like, but there is some I find really corny and kind of amateurish, but I would never want to spoil anyone's enjoyment or appreciation of his work.

Whiteyyyyy !!!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:48pm DJ Babs:

Whitey never fails to please!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:48pm Derek Westerholm:

Hey there Scott! How was the cricket? Favourable outcomes? Graceful plays?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:49pm DJ Babs:

Helloooo Scott!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:50pm Derek Westerholm:

Sean, hello! Yes, it's a fantastic card... Brightening up the house! Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:52pm Scott67:

Derek, it's the Ashes mate! We have the Poms struggling on day 3. Canada never did catch the Colonial Cricket bug.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:52pm DJ Babs:

This is my new favourite band this week lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:53pm Derek Westerholm:

Yeah, John Prine has completely slipped under/out of my radar, but that Viagara Boys reading of the song is addictive... They make it totally their own & at least 70% of the song is really them having their own way. There are so many amazing sounds and ventures into left-field in that song. The original doesn't really stand up next to that interpretation.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:55pm Derek Westerholm:

Scott67, we got too busy with Lacrosse.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:56pm Derek Westerholm:

Lacrosse, apparently is "the oldest organized sport in North America, with its origins in aboriginal Canada as early as the 17th century."
Avatar 9:57pm Cameron Pretendre:

My fave snotty synth punks!!! Yay!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:57pm Derek Westerholm:

It's also Canada's official sport.
  9:57pm Tyler:

There's a cricket pitch in the ravine near my home. Sometimes I'll watch for a while but I have no idea about the rules. Any game that takes days to settle and has tea breaks is a hard sell in the new world. I know many people from India that are fanatical about it, though...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:58pm Derek Westerholm:

I think tea breaks should be essential in all sports
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:58pm Scott67:

My Dad played LaCrosse growing up in Melbourne. 👍😎
  9:59pm Tyler:

Tea break after every bench brawl :)
Avatar 9:59pm Alli B:

Thank you so mucho!
  10:00pm Tyler:

Before summer hockey, Lacrosse was the go-to summer sport for hockey players when I was growing up. It tends to be high on injury, though...
  10:00pm Tyler:

Os Mutantes! <3
Avatar 10:00pm Cameron Pretendre:

Amazing show!!!! Thank you.
  10:00pm Tyler:

Thanks to Derek, Babs and all y'all for another fun episode. Gotta hustle on down to Barbi & Dave's thing at The Mix on College. If any of you are also so inclined I'll meet you for a drink...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:01pm Scott67:

Cricket works in Australia, cos it's a Summer game, takes days & has breaks. Great excuse to sit on yer arse & drink beer!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:01pm Otis:

Thanks Babs & Derek, have a great evening. Cheers to you all too!! Byeeeeee
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:02pm Scott67:

Thanks guys! Sorry I was late to the Beach!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:03pm DJ Babs:

No worries Scott we missed ya but Cricket is important! Thank you everyone for joining us!! We'll see you next week! BIG LUV!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:03pm Derek Westerholm:

Scott, you are welcome at any time, there's no timeline on the beach, the sand, water and echoing sounds will be with you whenever you visit.
  10:04pm Tyler:
