DJ Notes:

01) Said the Whale – “Camilo (The Magician)”
02) A Trophy Life – “Conversation Sucks”
03) Maurice – “Kerosene”
04) Franco – “Forever”

I knew the leader of Said the Whale way back in the olden days when he was just a 15 year old ponker kid in a band called My Buddy Dave.  Today, Tyler is an ex-UVic’er jamming out his new band based out of Vancouver called Said The Whale.  The band is starting to get some love and radio play.  You might hear Said the Whale on the Modern Rock Inbox with David Eleanor, or on The Peak in Vancouver.  Good times.

A Trophy Life commutes between Victoria and Vancouver.  Their song “Conversation Sucks” is from the new EP called “Go On Tour” ep.  “Conversation Sucks”  is titled after the former Zone Band of the Month Conversation.  The title is just a tongue in cheek reference, the bands are friends.  Tim of Conversation sings and plays keys/samples for A Trophy Life.

Former ZBOTM Maurice needs a trophy for their creative album title, ‘Young People With Faces.’  Don’t we all have faces?  Profound.

Maurice is on tour playing all sorts of groovy cities.

Hang on a second, I’ll be in Edmonton the day Maurice is in own… should I go see Victoria bands in Edmonton?

Finally, a song from yet another former ZBOTM, Franco.  Franco used the Spinal Tap thing for their ep title, ‘This Is Franco.’  The song I featured, “Forever” was selected by the CBC Radio’s BC Almanac as a theme song.  How cultured of them.

Thank you for downloading the show, I hope you love it (or at least enjoy it) and share the link for the podcast on your blog or with your friends.

Robert Smith continues to lose his mind on Radiohead.  Hilarity ensues.

and that’s that.
