Radio - Sunday, September 10th, 2017

A few weeks back, on SHEXD #11, Christina was one of the guest hosts who was participating in the show for her last time because she is moving back to her native Australia. Sarde mentioned that it might be a good idea to have Christina come in a guest host a show and tonight's show was the first time we could get her in. Christina has been involved in the Toronto scene in a lot of amazing ways, but she approached the show by looking at bands from here, bands from Cleveland and bands from Australia. You can download an MP3 of the show here

THE UGLIES – Make Punk Great Again (No Patience)

I mentioned that we had done a show on the early scene in Sydney related to a film and that MRR had done a show recently on weirdo punk from the early scene but Christina wanted to shine a focus on the contemporary scene as there are many scenes putting out a lot of great bands in various styles of punk. Here is the first of two sets on contemporary Aussie punk.

THE SKIDS – Deepest Grave (Shipping Steel)
DRUG SWEAT – Hectic Whipper (Aarght)
LOW LIFE - Dogging (RIP Society)
STRAIGHTJACKET NATION – Power It Up (Cool Death / La Vida Es Un Mus)
UBIK – Touch Off (Lost In Fog)
TYRANNAMEN - I Don’t Want to go to Jail (Cool Death / Static Shock)

Second set on Australian punk
BRANDO’S ISLAND - Duplicaat (Altered State)
58008 - Devolve (No Patience)
DEATH CHURCH – Jaw Crusher (No Patience)
MASSES - Crosses (Lost In Fog/Mass Media)
SPOTTING – Wait Your Turn (No Patience)

Christina had mad a number of trips to Cleveland when she was living in Melbourne. She explained how Cleveland has always had interesting bands, but again wanted to focus on the contemporary scene, which is partially what she has done with her label Blow Blood Records. Here is the first of two sets on Cleveland punk.

LACERATE – Despair (Konton Krasher)
THE COWBOY – The Cowboy (Fashionable Idiots / Blow Blood Records / Drunken Sailor)
MAGIC CITY – Free (Blow Blood)
PERVERTS AGAIN – Figgy Pudding (Non Commercial)
THE SIGHT – Time Lapse (Blow Blood)

Second set on Cleveland
THE MISSED – Just Like Cellophane (Quality Time Records)
VANILLA POPPERS – Where You Told Me I Belong (Lumpy)
BULSCH – Innee Innee Outbawl (Blow Blood)
CRUELSTER – Terminal Windmill (Turbine Piss)
BAD NOIDS – Into the Future (Feel It)
KILL THE HIPPIES – Dig Your Own Grave (Phoenician MicroSystems)
INMATES – Skummy / Public Education (Human Stench)

Christina has lived in Toronto for the past couple of years. In that time she has gained an appreciation for punk from Canada, but the list of bands was a lot longer than what made it to air......

F.I.T.S. – Stupid Garbage Society (Blow Blood)
PROM NITE – No Motivation (Barfbag)
PROTRUDERS – Cold Energy (Self Released)
S.H.I.T. – Incorporation (La Vida Es Un Mus)
NO NEGATIVE – Cellophane (Swollen City)

FAZE – No Loss (Runstate)

TEENANGER - Just Drop It (Telephone Explosion)

A couple of weeks back we recorded a session in the hallway with Alien Boys from Vancouver. It is rare that we get bands from out of town, but we have recorded the Rebel Spell almost everytime they came through and Erin was in Rebel Spell so when Alien Boys was setting up their tour she reached out and scheduled this session in with everything, which was very thoughtful and when looking at their tour schedule was also an inconvenience for them, so I appreciated that they took the 7 hours that it takes to do one of these sessions.

We talked longer than we should have and as a result the entire interview doesn't get aired tonight. We also weren't able to play a couple of songs. For the full interview and all their songs see our blog on their studio 3 session. But you can hear most of it on the player above or download an MP3 of the show here.

ALIEN BOYS - Interview (CIUT)
ALIEN BOYS – Freebird (CIUT)
ALIEN BOYS – Interview (CIUT)
ALIEN BOYS – Self-Critical Theory (CIUT)
ALIEN BOYS – Interview (CIUT)
ALIEN BOYS – Gentrification (CIUT)
ALIEN BOYS – Interview (CIUT)

The interview gets cut off and the full interview exists on a blog post for the studio 3 session with Alien Boys. There are also additional songs that we hoped to play available for download on this page.

Shequalizing-X-Distort's 11th takeover of the airwaves, Girls of Summer 2017 edition of the show. Tonight's instigators were long time stalwarts Zoe and Sarde and first time co-hosts Mariam, Karla, and Christina who has been on before. Sarde started out with ESG and some apologies for the band not being punk enough, but it sounded great. A download of this show is available here.

ESG – It’s Alright

Sarde started off with a dedication to Marjie and also talked about Not Dead Yet which is coming up soon and how the festival will be different without Soybomb. She also mentioned a great meme that Rosie from Outcry started for this year's fest.

HAGAR THE WOMB – Idolization
BOOJI BOYS – Plaza Too Perfect (Self-Released)
1-900’s – Trained Dog
PLAYBOY – The Weather

Zoe was teased for being such a media darling this past few weeks with her street health work that has spearheaded some IDU sites including a pop up site and has led to some funding finally. In fact she is being interviewed again in the morning and is a real trooper coming out tonight. But Zoe also speaks about applying your punk ethics in a real life way. 

GAZM - Fuck You (Self-Released)
OUTCRY - It's a Joke (Self-Released)
DAME - Glitch
CIRCUIT 7 - Video Boys

Mariam is somewhat new to the city but used to be the zine coordinator at MRR and did a punk radio show in Chicago where she is originally from. Mariam has also sung in five punk bands the most recent being Permanent Ruin and pulled together a set of little known bands that reflect a number of things. 

UNSUB – Trapped
INDIREKT – Groten Ult Holland
DRUJ – War Hymns
QUE LASTIMA – Paradise

Karla plays in Pure Pressure and is moving back to Victoria after NDY 2017. Karla is organizing a screening about a film that explores the moral dilemma between veganism and First Nation's hunting and trapping rights. 

TOMAR CONTROL – Haz le Diferencia
PURA MANIA – Grandes Esperanzas
MALA RACHA – Land of the Free

Christina sings in the Vanilla Poppers and runs Blowback Records. She is moving back to Australia after NDY 2017 and pulled together an all Canadian set as a way of saying goodbye. But we have invited Christina back to guest host a show before she goes and delight us with an exploration of Aussie punk. 

PROM NITE – No Motivation (Self-Released)
SIYAHKAL – Pari Bolandeh
THE BOYS – Big Boy, Big Attitude

Everyone ran out of time with material and so the last set was a combined set between Zoe and Sarde.

SECT – Masters and Slaves
FLESH WORLD – Just to Tear Me Down
DEAD FLOWERS – First Track demo
CITIZEN’S ARREST – Light in the Darkness

Alien Boys studio 3 session

Alien Boys are a great new band from Vancouver and released a 7 song recording called "Self-Critical Theory".

I found their recording through the MRR review on their bandcamp page. Then Erin wrote me about them coming on tour and I knew her from the Rebel Spell and hadn't realized she was in the band so it was a happy coincidence. Alien Boys worked this session into their schedule and we worked on a few new songs, a few songs from this recording and some improvised IDs. 

So the band also features Sarah on vocals, Erin and Alex on guitar, Megan on bass, and Lindsay on drums. The members came to talk about how they came to join Alien Boys. We get them to talk about their songs in depth, their influences, their name, their scene, Vancouver and a myriad of other topics. You can hear the two parts of the interview here. 

Part 1
Part 2

The songs recorded include:

Self-Critical Theory
Just Another Piece of Acid


This session was recorded by Ian Wilkinson in the CIUT Hallway. More photos can be found on our facebook page.

Radio - Sunday, August 20, 2017

In all the coverage of Charlottesville one chant at the protests that I keep hearing is the intro to MDC's "Born to Die" which is the phrase "No War, No KKK, No Fascist USA". It is one of my all time favourite hardcore songs and it makes me proud to hear a song like that being yelled in the streets in opposition to things happening in the States. So we started off the show with MDC and a rant about what has been happening in Charlottesville. Here is an MP3 file of the show.

MDC - Born to Die (R Radical)

So to set the tone for the week it has been here are some songs to reflect things that have happened in Charlottesville starting with a band from Columbia, South Carolina who first wrote about these representations of history in a song called “Southern Swastikas”. In an unrelated coincidence the song came out on an album called “The Nutty Anti-Christ: which featured Jerry Lewis on the cover dressed up as the devil. Jerry Lewis passed away yesterday.

IN/HUMANITY - Southern Swatiskas (Prank)
THE PINKERTON THUGS – Propaganda by the Dead (Insurgence)
DEADSTOOLPIDGEON – Statue (Crucial Response)
MARILYN’S VITAMINS – Ernst Zundel, Voltaire and Me (Raw Energy)
THE OPPRESSED – Antifa Hooligans (Mad Butcher / Redstar '73)

If you have been listening to “Democracy Now” this week you have been hearing interviews with Cornell West who has talked about how the white nationalists locked the group in a church while they carried torches and threaten to burn it down, while the police stood back and let the white nationalists engage in this terrorism Antifa stepped into save the people in the church. they would be dead. Democracy Now interviewed Mark Bray, who wrote a book called "Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook".

In Baltimore two statues were removed. In Memphis crowds linked arms and called for the removal of Jefferson Davis. The movement is growing.

BLANK STARES are a new punk band from Toronto that came in and recorded a session on June 13th, which was the singer's (Travis) birthday. Travis was in on the show once to do a tribute to Vassil when he passed away. They played in a band together called TERMINAL LICKS. I also knew Taras from CITY SWEETHEARTS which was a band that Vassil played in, so you can see the world's intersecting here. Mikey has also been in at the station. He dropped by once for fundraising although he doesn't remember it. Mikey plays bass in FIRST BASE and runs a great little label called Hosehead Records. And Andrew, the synth player, plays in CENTURY PALMS who have been played on the show a few times. Lots of six degrees of separation threads going on with this band and the show. I was glad to have them in and be able to celebrate Travis' borthday with a Hamburger Cake that Taras picked up. Anyway it shouldn't be understated how good this band is by their lineage. They share a strong resemblance to the UNDERTONES in terms of vocals and they have a catchy new wave vibe a la TRANZMITORS / FASHIONISM.
