Lots of new music to start the show. Vancouver band Whitfield told me about their new album Tornado Cutie so I found a cut that has a nice Killers vibe to lead off the show.  Jell, a former Zone Band of the Month, still working hard and some new music from them.  A demo from Old Man Solie.  The show ends with a live performance from The Racoons.  Thank you for downloading the show, please please, please take four seconds to search for ‘Capital Rock City’ in the iTunes store and subscribe/rate/comment.  Thank you.

DJ Notes

01) Whitfield – “Top of the World”
02) Jell – “Nothing Left to Say”
03) Old Man Solie – “Lot 9” (demo)
04) The Racoons – “Room to Operate”
05) The Racoons – “Tangiers”

CRC 84 begins with the theme song to my current fave show, “In The Night Garden.”  And why not?  I love that little Makka Pakka, isn’t that a pip?

Whitfield is a band I know of because of my Whale watching/Car Selling friend, Brendan.  He turned me on to these guys some time ago when he popped by The Mix Tape at the Clubhouse one Thursday.  Josh finally sent me an email and here we are, enjoying the opening cut to their record “Tornado Cutie.”  Great album title eh?  Whitfield would sound great for fans of the Killers or Bravery.

Jell is jamming out a concert on Friday at Sugar with Aegis Fang!  Which reminds me, I really show fire up some Aegis Fang again the show.

A couple weeks back, we all enjoyed the LIVE CRC 81 from The Black Stilt.  Well, maybe we ALL didn’t, but I had fun.  While wandering the coffee shop I ran into a worker there who was also a musician and he put his demo in my hand right there!  And you’re hearing it today!  Be gentle with your critique, it is only a an early demo, but I love hearing these raw sounds.  Very groovy party rock.  Might be better suited to summer cocktails then Christmas Rums.

The show ends with one of my fave Vic rockers, The Racoons.  They came by the Zone Afternoon Show to perform “Room To Operate.” But I demanded satisfaction and to hear “Tangiers.”  So they did both. awwww, I love those guys.

Next week on the podcast, not really working on anything to special so I’ll troll the net for some fine rock & roll.  BUT the week after, I’d LOVE to do a Christmas Capital Rock City… any bands have a Christmas song to send me?  jeremy@thezone.fm.

Then I’ll do a “Best of” as chosen by me… in 2010, already lining up a couple shows.  Aidan Knight will come, and perform and play songs from his favourite Vic rockers (and some Black Tie Social!) and then I am trying to get Forestry in here too for a CD release show.  their record is out in January 2010.

That’s all I got.  Go with yourself.

Wow, a couple days late with the DJ notes.  bad radio DJ, bad!

Please tuck into: Capital Rock City #61

I continue my march to 1,000 weekly downloads on Capital Rock City.  Webmeister Bud is still on mat leave celebrating the birth of his daughter!  Huzzah Bud!  So I don’t know the stats, the last I checked it was in the neighbourhood of a 100 a week.  Not bad, but as you can see, lots of work ahead of me to get the podcast to a sustainable audience.  You can do your part in supporting the fine music of Victoria by sharing the link of the podcast with a friend(s) or posting on your social network (Facebook, Twitter, Myspace).

You can also subscribe to the podcast, two ways, RSS Feed or in the iTunes Store podcast section.  Just search for ‘Capital Rock City’ and don’t forget to rate and comment please.

You’ll also find Capital Rock City at Raised on Indie!

Sales pitch aside, let’s get to it.

DJ Notes

01) Jell – “Watch Yourself”
02) Listening Party – “Pachina”
03) Goodbye Beatdown – “The Grudge”
04) The Matinee – “The Road”

Jell sent me a link for their new music video.  Pretty decent.  Have a look.

I was surprised to see that Jell has actually made a few videos for their songs.  All a very good DIY quality.  Jell’s Youtube Page

Here is yet another from Jon Middleton’s Listening Party.  This song is a little more lo-fi than the last LP song I featured.  Not sure what I think about it.  i like the quirkyness of it.

The Listening Party will be in Duncan on June 27th and in Vancouver opening for one of my favourite bands, Japandroids, at Richards on August 7th.

The Goodbye Beatdown are playing Zoner Gina’s party on July 4th.  You’re totally invited (no seriously, email me if you want to go…).

The show ends with The Matinee.  A band I have known since highschool.  they’ve changed their name like a hundred times (well three) and this latest incarnation has a slight country/folky twang.  Matt sent me a slate of new tunes and I felt that “the Road” was by far the strongest.

Thank you for finding Capital Rock City, let’s do it again sometime shall we?

Go with yourself.

Capital Rock City #52 has been birthed and wants you so badly to download it… or him… or I guess her, download her.  sure.

Download and Love: Capital Rock City #52

and remember my friends, when you subscribe to Capital Rock City from the iTunes podcast section or RSS the program, the HMCS Winnipeg foils another batch of savage Somali pirates!

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.
