Posts Tagged ‘Eat the Weeds’

CRC 93 starts off with one of the more interesting indie rockers I’ve heard in awhile.  The artist goes by Eat the Weeds. She has some world beat type stuff going on.  Nanaimo metal band Look Medusa have a terrible band bio write up, but fun straight forward epic style of hard rock.  I almost hear a little Fu Manchu in there?  I hope so, I like the Fu.  My friend Tyson got a job touring with Florida punks Against Me! I interviewed him last week at the start of their cross Canada tour and then launch into Tyson’s band Acres of Lions.  The show ends with a remix of Tegan and Sara done by local Victoria DJ Murge.  Murge taught me at DJ school!  what a guy.

DJ Notes

01) Eat the Weeds – “Open Loop Design”
02) Look, Medusa! – “The Magic Word”
03) Acres of Lions – “Dance Sequence”
04) Tegan and Sara – “Walking With A Ghost (DJ Murge Remix)”

Man, I hate being the dick, but I had to come down on Hey! Medusa’s band bio.  They’re not the first band I’ve had to call out on the podcast for terribleness… but maybe, just maybe the last?  Anyways, here we go.  Maybe you got some thoughts, maybe you’re a writer and can send the boys some help.

Look, Medusa! is a schizophrenic mixture of sweet metal licks and powerful pop sensibility, packed to the rim with so much emotion that you’ll need a lifetime prescription for Prozac.

It all started as a basement metal band in the Summer of ’06, dedicating half of every band practice to catching the latest episodes of Beverly Hills 90210. Now Look, Medusa! is committed to creating a unique and resonant sound to identify with what each of us has gone through, both collectively and individually. As we’ve grown, so too has our sound. As our minds have evolved, so too have our awesome rock-related superpowers.

Right now, Look, Medusa! is recording for their upcoming album at Victoria’s Infinity Studios with Adam Sutherland. The eclectic mix will delve into every musical taste the band has experienced to date, to prove that they’ve got what it takes to escape the island and make it.

I got a few problems with the bio, but chiefly… who even watches 90210?  They do episodes on the dangers of Sexting?  Shenae Grimes is pretty adorable I guess… if you like that sorta thing, but an inspiration for your brand of metal?

That said, a pretty enjoyable, straight forward metal-type sound.

That’s all I got, talk to you next week. Go with yourself.

01) Eat The Weeds – In My Fading Memory
02) TV Heart Attack – A/O
03)
Oh Snap! – Involuntary
04) Jell – Pin Me Down
05) Cheers in the Belfry – Alcoholism
06) The Paper Cranes – I’ll Love You Till My Veins Explode

Gosh darn it, those kids in the Paper Cranes look down right adorable, and I recognize a couple from???… Tha Racoons!

Thank you to Miranda for taking the time to gossip about The Paper Cranes having a couple songs featured in a new MTV Canada Hills wannabe show?  alright then.  As blogged on Perez Hilton.

But this is getting ahead of ourselves, the interview with Miranda is at the end of the show.

I start CRC 52 with a surprisingly wonderful song from a performer that goes by Eat The Weeds.  I posted her story the other day on this here blog.

Sara P discovered this band from Vancouver, TV Heart Attack and wanted to share it on the podcast.

Oh Snap! used to be the band Sanijav which is Vajinas with a ‘J’ spelled backwards.  Yup.  So they changed their name and became the Zone Band of the Month.  See you at Evo on April 30th for showcase performance.

New Jell takes the band in a poppier direction.  If I remember, these boys used to have a more classic grungy sound.  But maybe I’m getting old and forget.

The Belfry is a performance space in scenic Fernwood… also the name of this Vic band that had spent some time in Montreal.  But now they are back jamming out their folksy alt rock.

and that’s that.  Please download my podcast and if you like it, please tell a friend.

Go with yourself.
