Aquilo is the super chill duo from the super chill village of Silverdale, which looks to my ignorant eyes…as a town in a park in England? Must be nice.

I’ve blogged about these bros before, I like their soft sounds.

New song is called “You’re Like Me.”

Today is a perfect one in Vancouver. I went to Storm Crow Alehouse on Broadway to tape an episode of their podcast. My walk into the city after was glorious.

I’ll let you know when the podcast goes live and maybe you’ll throw it a listen for me? We yap some Dungeons and Dragons, Stranger Things, James Corden, Pokemon, beer.

Go with yourself.

Local homeboy Ross Crockford shows up on Living in the City to talk about what Victoria looked like in 1862! Like did you know… Johnson Street used to be a gully? a gully full of dead bodies!?! SWA? Fortunately, our fore-fathers/mothers… rightly fearing a zombie uprising, had prisoners move them to Pioneer Square on Quadra.  Now there are no more bodies (that we know of) buried under Johnson Street… yet the threat of Zombie apocalypse remains. Stay vigilant.

Listen to this! Living in the City – Victoria in 1862

Writing a top 10 list of favourite records has become a bit of a holiday tradition for me.  Not too sure how long I’ve been doing it… many years.

Thank you if you took the time to read… we’ll level up that thank you if you also shared a link.  The other day’s blog post was one of my bigger posts in terms of web-traffic in awhile.  Thank you.

Megan Will asked if I’d string the songs together for a Mixtape so she can listen to it as like a podcast.  Easy enough and thank you Megan for asking!

It began as a simple internet search last week… and ended with me dropping $20 on itunes.

What was the first rock and roll song?

Fucking science man… they don’t have a definitive answer, but wikipedia comes darn close.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/First_ro…

Now that is a good read for a music nerd like me. I ended up downloading a bunch of the suggestions from the list and thought I’d share them with you while also practicing to use my garageband (I hate this program, but its what I got).

Thank you for taking the time to jam out some olden tyme music with me. Hope you dig it.

Coral and I did some record shopping on the weekend. We hit the new Talk’s Cheap store on Pandora at Government Street. In the old Regalia Store space.

He has tons of great 45s.  Coral and I are always looking for some more dance party hits for our vinyl sets so I loaded up on some UK chart toppers of the early 80s.

Thank you for taking the time to listen to my music.

DJ Notes

a-sides

01) The Police – “So Lonely”
02) Squeeze – “Another Nail in My Heart”
03) The Jam – “Going Underground”
04) Adam and the Ants – “Stand and Deliver”

b-sides

05) The Police – “No Time This Time”
06) Squeeze – “Pretty Thing”
07) The Jam – “The Dreams of Children”
08) Adam and the Ants – “Beat My Guest”

A whole bunch of great hits of the late 70s and early 80s.  The Police cut is the original 1978 single which went nowhere at the time.  The Police released their album Outlandos d’Amour.  When this record dropped it went nowhere.  The BBC didn’t get it.  A song about a prostitute? (Roxanne), suicide (Can’t Stand Losing You), loneliness (So Lonely).

But they soldiered on, toured, came to America and through hard work they were able to push through.  They ended up re-releasing many of these future hits in 1980 and the second time around, The Police began to chart. To this day, so many of the most endearing Police songs are these early singles.  Silly 1970s radio DJs.

DJ Notes

01) Class of ’84 – “Sick City”
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.
