DJ Notes

01) CFC – “City Drift”
02) Rabbit – “Waiting for The War”
03) Moss Rock – “Filthy”
04) Purple Grimus – “Please Me”

Not the first time I’ve featured the Crap Fartus Crew on podcast.  JP Maurice is a multi-instrumentalist with the CFC and I recently (well not THAT recently I guess) had a chance to the CFC and every time these guys, they get so much better.  They made a music video for the song I played, “City Drift.”

Rabbit are some great guys.  I seem to chat with them on twitter all the time.  You can see Rabbit live this Thursday at Evo.  In fact, The Zone’s Back To School Party Bus might pay them a visit this Thursday!

Some new bands for me, Moss Rock and Purple Grimus are also playing this Thursday at The V Lounge.

That’s all I got for this week.  next week I have a great singer/songwriter cat named Jason Walsh to play for you.  Some more Steph Macpherson, likely some  more Laundronauts and Acres of Lions.

Go with yourself.

DJ Notes

01) Goodbye Beatdown – “Whatchagwando”
02) CFC – “Taste Beats”
03) The Blue Violets – “Desire”
04) Rabbit – “List of Secrets”

CRC 58 starts with a chit-chat with Mark.  He was the bass player of Daniel Wesley and now works with his new project The Goodbye Beatdown.

JP Maurice mixed down a new one for the CFC and sent it over to me.

The Blue Violets perform the Zone Band of the Month Showcase this Thursday, May 28th @ Evolution.  This song ‘Desire’ has real wicked vintage sound.  Almost Doors-esque?

Rabbit wins for best “worst band bio ever.”  I think the boys have since updated their website, thank god… but a simple google search still brings up this gem.

The members of Rabbit were born on the planet Krypton and rocketed
to Earth as infants by their scientist parents, moments before the
planet’s inevitable destruction. The rocket landed on Earth where
an elderly farm couple found and adopted the boys as their own.
Over the years, the boys grew to be timid and unpopular amongst their
peers but remained exceptionally bright, showing extraordinary prowess
in judo, building small robots of little destruction, photography,
magic, and teaching crochet to children in third world countries.
While working in the fields early one morning, the boys were bitten
by a radioactive rabbit (a really big one). Unbeknownst to them, the
rabid rabbit had given the boys an array of rabbit-like powers,
including the ability to engineer really cool software, play music,
and most importantly, an extra-sensory “rabbit-sense”. Unfortunately,
while still growing into their new found powers, an innocent night at
the movies proved fatal. A mugger gunned down the boys’ parents in a
dark alley leaving them orphans. With vengeance in mind and the vast
fortune willed to them by their adopted parents, the four boys honed
their skillz to peak rabbit perfection… becoming dark avengers of the
night. Now as adults, realizing that criminals were a superstitious,
cowardly lot, and that with great power comes great responsibility,
they formed a band simply known as Rabbit, and resolved to only use
their new found powers for entertainment.

Music sounds sharp and it looks like the boys have updated their website.

That’ll do it for Capital Rock City this week, thank you for finding the show.  Please share the link with a friend.

Go with yourself.
