“My bad day won’t equal his.” – Saul from the song ‘Sunday’

One of these days I will need to hop in into Webmeister Bud’s office and see where Capital Rock City stands on the march to 1,000 weekly downloads.  The blogs hits on a Tuesday/Wednesday tend to be strong so I hope that is translating.

Do your part by clicking here to download: Capital Rock City 73


DJ Notes

01) Saul – “Sunday”
02) Funk Vigilante – “Top of The World”
03) Saul – “Right From Wrong”
04) Reaver – “Corvis”

The boys of Saul came by the Capital Rock City studio on Quadra Street to chit chat about their album ‘All Gods to the Front.’  We fondly remember The Moffatts, talk about full arm sleeve tattoos, recording in a warehouse, going on tour, adding crowd SFX to recorded tracks and play some of Saul’s fave local Vic rockers, Funk Vigilante and Reaver.

DJ Notes

01) Funk Vigilante – “On Top of the World”
02) Goodbye Beatdown – “Feel Your Pain”
03) Lizzie and Simon – “Wherever You Go”
04) Black Hat Villain – “Rain or Shine”

Funk Vigilante reminds me of my old vigilante hat.  Many moons ago when I was snot-nosed suburban hipster, I went to the Warped Tour in Vancouver.  During the show I found this trucker hat (remember when those were so hawt!) that had the top cut off so it looked like a real D-bag styled golf vizer thing.  Written in sharpy marker was the word “vigilante.”  Cool.

Funk Vigilante describes themselves as:

The album is called “Civil Disobedience”  it’s like one of those hot lava burritos, blended up, and poured right into your listening hole.

which is much better than anything I could write.

The Goodbye Beatdown are a Vancouver band that is increasingly spending more and more time visiting us here in Victoria.  They’ll once again be here for a show on August 20th at Lucky Bar.

Liz Beattie was (maybe still is?) the bass player for Machina.  Remember that band?  Lately I notice she performs as The Liz Beattie band or on MySpace as Lizzie and Simon.  Simon is the keyboard player for Maurice and together they make some pretty indie pop.  Cute attack!

I end the show this week with Langfordians, Black Hat Villain.  You’ll get a chance to experience their post-grungy sounds live at The Station House Pub on Saturday, August 15th when they suppoert the Armchair Cynics.

Thank you for trying something new with your music and discovering some great Victoria rock & roll.
