CRC 91 begins with some new music. A punky one from a band called Class of ’84 then Dan Politano sent a new recording over as well. The second half of the show features a couple BC bands taking part in the Sasquatch! Music Festival in Washington State. Vancouver’s fuzzy hyper-blogged about Japandroids and Victoria’s ice cool and atmospheric Jets Overhead. Neat-O gang. Thank you for downloading my podcast.

02) Dan Politano – “Maybe”
03) Japandroids – “Art Czars”
04) Jets Overhead – “No Nations”
This party gets started with some new punk rock. Classic sound, straight ahead, new band. Class of ’84.
I had trouble tracking down a website for them (turns out there is an Irish band with the same name). Whatever, Myspace is not punk rock. This picture IS punk rock.
SWAGed from Jono's Facebook page. Class of '84 at the Quadra House.
Dan Politano, its been awhile friendo. After the punk, we calm it down for another alt-lite from the Sidney, VI rocker (are you from Sidney Dan?).
Today (or I guess yesterday) the Ear Candy blogged leaked the Sasquatch festival line-up. Today it was official so I thought I’d include a couple CRC darlings to end the podcast.
Japandroids are Terminal Rock City’s fuzz heroes and one of THE MOST BLOGGED ABOUT BANDS! Whoa, I iz helper them.
“Art Czars” is part of the Japandroids 2010 7″ singles series.
Download it for free! (I did, TWICE)
Czars totally sucked… but I think history will judge Soviet Russia as worse… so….
They *might* also be talking about the village in Alberta… which would be mighty, but doubtful. (hmmm, now I kinda want to go there.)
This tight little podcast ends with Victoria journeymen (and women) group, Jets Overhead. Jets rocked the Bonnaroo last year, Coachella later and now Sasquatch in May! Our growing little army of Island invaders will all need to make a date to converge at whatever stage they are at when they play and burn one down for them. So great.
Thank you for rocking the Zone and for choosing my podcast. You totally rule and Russian Czars totally suck (but they suck less than Soviet Communism! COLD WAR WIN!)
Go with yourself.
