I had a great night at The Clubhouse last night.  Lots of Zoners came by to make request, jibber jabber about rock and roll, have birthdays, not say hi to me, and one even told how much , “she LOVES me.”  Apparently I make her laugh every morning when she wakes up.  SWA?

Anyways, thank you for coming out on a Tuesday.

Let’s go.


Please Download: Capital Rock City #53

and remember kids, when you subscribe to Capital Rock City from the iTunes store in the podcast section (for free) or RSS this audio dynomo, Jian Ghomeshi gets to have Billy Bob berate him for another minute (lucky guy).

DJ Notes:

01) Aegis Fang – “Foot Down”
02) Aegis Fang – “Small Town”
03) Orange Aeroplane – “Begin Again”
04) Orange Aeroplane – “The Getaway”
05) Fineas Gage – “Track 1”
06) Greg Wolfe – “Maybe Not For Sure Sometimes”

Aegis Fang are a couple might groovy fella’s who are part of the Zone’s Amalgamated Team Zone 24 Hour Relay for The Kids… Team. (psst, click the link and please donate a couple nickles… pretty please).  The boys in Aegis Fang are performing Thursday, April 16th at The Cambie in Esquimalt.  I’ll see you there!

Orange Aeroplane is very new to me.  I can’t even find their website online right now… but Miranda of The Paper Cranes like them and she turned me onto the band, so they are good by me.  Very interesting airy, melodic “indie” rock sound.

Fineas Gage are a few (or all) of the ladies from an old Vic band called Big Muff.  They kinda sound like Veruca Salt.. kinda sorta… don’t they?

Greg Wolfe is another new performer.  From what I can gather, it seems like Greg is still getting his songs crafted and working on building his career.  He was brave enough to share a song with us on Capital Rock City and I think it sounds pretty good.  Folky.

That’s all I got.  Thank you for downloading… if you like the show please share the link or my blog with a friend.

Go with yourself.

Come get some, the Best of 2009 (so far) on Capital Rock City #50.

Best enjoyed through your ears: Capital Rock City #50

and remember friends, the only way FOX News will take Canada seriously is if you SUBSCRIBE to Capital Rock City from the iTunes podcast section or RSS this bitch from the Zone dot FM.

DJ Notes:

01) Racoons – “Tangiers”
02) Vince Vaccaro – “The City at Sunrise”
03) Acres of Lions – “Working”
04) Justin Hewitt – “Close Your Eyes”
05) Jon & Roy – “What I Need”
06) Paper Cranes – “Telephone”


I don’t know what to write here except these are a few of my favourites.  Really, anything from most these bands could go in this space.  All the new Racoons, or Acres is amazing.  I just remembered Vince’s “Costa Rice” which is a shame, because I would have included that track in place of “The City at Sunrise” now that I think about it and hear it again on Vince’s MySpace.

Here is a pretty rad music video that Chucky shared with me.  The artist is Johnny Galactic and the song is “Pink Coat.”  Look out for my man Aran from the Armchair Cynics rocking the bass guitar!

whoa… while typing this, Mads took a header off the couch.  ahhh, Mom will get this one.

That’s all I got.  Please download my podcast and share the link with a friend if you dig it.

Couple things went down for this weeks Capital Rock City.  Tuesday, The Clubhouse booked a big party of convention people.  Great for business, but I couldn’t record my first live-to-tape Capital Rock City with Acres of Lions.

It will still happen, but the first one will have to be with a different band?  Anyone want to volunteer?

Tyson said they’d be down to record one for me in April.

The other plan was to have Miranda and Ryan of the Paper Cranes on the show.  But on Monday (when I record the show) I ended up at the Victoria Film Festival.  Miranda and Ryan will be next week for CRC 42.

The film festival was very fun.  I saw 14 short films!  It is too bad that there is no place on this planet for easier consumption of this great art.  My favourite films I couldn’t even find websites for, let alone streamed on Youtube.  Hey film makers… if you make a film and want people to actually watch it, you have to distribute it.  (shakes head).

There used to be a TV show on the CBC called Zed.  Do you remember that show?  It must have been on TV around 2000?  I was living with Paul in Burncouver (or was it Vanaby?) and we smoked a lot of pot.  The show was basically a film fest every night.  Then it stopped.  WTF CBC… Stoners are Canadian tax payers too you know.  I like Strombo… but I’d have a nighty time explosion in my pants if my evening went Strombo at 11P then Zed at midnight… or who knows, maybe Zed is still on?  I can’t find it and have never seen an ad for it.  Anyways… the show was basically a collection of short films, animations,  and avant-garde music videos presented for an hour or two every night from mostly Canadian but also world film makers.

The only issue I had with the film fest is a personal one… I was tired and it was along night.  I went from The Zone directly to the film fest and sat on a hard chair for 4 hours.  Great films… but long night.  Like longer than Titanic!

During intermission I was hungry as shit.  So  I left to find some food, but in the end all I wanted was a coffee.

I wander back into the film fest and the lady taking tickets turns to me and says, “do you know where to get any food around here?  I am starving!  I had to rush from work to the film fest and I ate no dinner.”

“Me too!” I reply, “I just found this coffee.”

“Did you know coffee is an appetite suppressant?”

“No I did not.”  Then I related the story to her about the time time I ate an apple.

“one time when I was doing my show I said on the air that was very hungry and during the commercials I was going to eat an apple because I love apples.

“this lady phones my show and says to me, ‘Jeremy did you know that apples are appetite suppressants?’ and I said really?  when I am hungry and I eat some food my appetite is suppressed? who’d have thought of that?”


That’s all I got, if you like podcasts check out Pol’s fantastic audio adventure The Polcast.

Capital Rock City is ALIVE!  Thank you to Computer Guy at Vicstream.com for not only the file hosting but also the technical support and love.

I am trying a few things so lets see if I can get CRC #39 to stream on a yahoo media player.

Capital Rock City #39

Blasted!  I could not get the yahoo media player to stream on my blog.  I sent a letter to the WordPress people hoping maybe one day they’ll make the site compatible with it, but until then.  Right Click and save the above or below link.  Or just click it and it might start playing on your computer.  It did on mine.

DOWNLOAD: Capital Rock City #39
DJ Notes

01) Everyone Everywhere – “You and Me and the Moon, Dude”
November 2008’s Zone band of the month.  The boys have cut some new tracks since we last heard them on the Zone.  This is one of the new ones.
02) The Racoons – “Be My Television”
Our current Zone band of the month.  Performing January 29th at Evolution Nightclub.
03) Laura Smith – “I Spy a Monster”
You’ll hear an oboe on her record, but no cello… what gives?
04) Paper Cranes – “Telephone (demo)”
Ryan drives a scooter.
05) Seven Year Old Poets – “Layers”
One of the most pleasantly surprising songs.  I think this track is the stand out on episode 39.  I am not sure who the female guest vocalist is, but sure is swell, gosh darn it.
06) Jon & Roy – “What I Need”
Jon & Roy are starting to do some good things.  This is their third single from the album “Another Noon.”  The boys have shown some interest in being a guest on the show some time in February.


So what do you think?  Please take a moment to leave some feedback  What I am looking for specifically is:

– do you like the format of the show?  Does it serve you being a 30 minute program?  Could it be shorter?  Do you demand MORE and want it longer?

– would it be better having the songs broken down into individual downloads?  I have thought that maybe that would be better, but then maybe the bands would less inclined to give me the songs as they might as well keep them for their websites… but I could always ask, you’d be surprised how people respond if you are brave enough to ask

– more insight or less?  too much banter or not enough?  do you care to hear the bands for an interview or shut it and play more music?

If you like the show, like really like, please share this link with friend who also have a passion for independent music.

I’ll produce another episode next Monday.  Special guest is slated to be Tyson from Acres of Lions and likely we’ll at least spin the new single “Closer.”  I really want to spin their new song “Working” but we’ll see what the record label thinks of that.

Thank you for taking the time to download my podcast.  If you like CRC #39 you might also jive on the PolcastGo get some.

Go with yourself.
