Bruno Subiotto, Roger N. OutIt’s a heavy show today. We start off with OBN III’s from Austin TX, lead by Orville Bateman Neeley III. Their new album Third Time To Harm, which is loud add diverse love letter to rock’n'roll. Speaking about rocking, one of the strongest bands in Yugoslavia was The Spoons from Pula. Their singer Bruno Subiotto continued his career as a singer in numerous bands, and also as an actor. His new band is called Roger N. Out which we feature in today’s show. San Pedro Slim is also a new name in our show. He comes from San Pedro, sings the blues and plays a mean harmonica. Chuck Prophet’s new single is also featured today. It’s a heavy show today, but we finish with an incredible, soft new arrangement of Laura Nyro’s Been On A Train. This features Rickie Lee Jones on vocals and will be out on the upcoming Billy Child’s record Reimagining Laura Nyro.

Elin Larsson, Blues PillsWe start of rocking hard. Mojo Magazine came up with the third instalment of their Heavy Nuggets and it sounds heavier than ever. Then we have a new name from Sweden – a hard rocking band Blues Pills fronted by Elin Larsson. Twin Peaks hail from Chicago and have a new album Wild Onion. Then we have a nice pair from Hozac – two singles and two new bands, 999999999 from the US and Southern Comfort from Australia, lead by Harriet Hudson and Angie Bermuda (also in Straight Arrows). One of the strongest albums this year so far is a duet by Lydia Lunch and Cypress Grove, entitle simply A Fistful of Desert Blues. They recorded a bunch of punky blues songs and it’s really strong. Then we have Richard Thompson with a new acoustic solo record in which he revisits his classics. But probably the coolest little bit today comes out in our Live in CLE segment. Today we have a brand new band from Cleveland called Monday Sound and it’s put together by Tom Fallon (New Salem Witch Hunters) and Brent Ferguson (Living Stereo). They covered no less than two Jackie DeShannon songs on their first gig ever and my recorder was handy…

Andy KentlerToday we introduce two new names from Australia. Andy Kentler and the Metal Babies from Sydney. We also introduce Paul Myers and John Moremen from San Francisco. Their name is of course The Paul and John, which I guess is a pretty fortunate combination. But an album that will blow your mind this week is a duet by the legendary Chris Cacavas and Edward Abbiati. Cacavas is of course one of the founding members of The Green On Red and Abbiati is a rocker from Switzerland. And don’t loose out of your sites a new band from Salt Lake City called Six Weeks In The Pine.

Johnny WinterIn today’s show we have the new music from the hard rock band Radio Moscow from Iowa and we introduce the new band from the Medway area, The Galileo 7. John Hiatt is back with an excellent new algum called Terms of My Surrender. Also, Mark Lanegan is preparing a new record with his band, and as an advance, a new single and a live recording came out recently. Janiva Magness is an excellent blues rock singer who just recently decided to make an album of original material for her own label. In some ways, this is her most personal album ever, titled simply Original. Also, we jump to the letter “W” in our regular segment called Blues Alphabet because the news comes to us that Johnny Winter passed away on July 16 this year.

Tommy RamoneThis is one devastating month for the world of music. We lost some of the really great ones recently. Tommy Ramone is the most recent one, until now, the only remaining original Ramone, writer of Blitzkrieg Bop and producer of The Replacements Tim. His most recent musical effort was a bluegrass duet Uncle Monk, and one touching song which I recorded live in Cleveland from that era finishes our show. We also review some of my favorite Gerry Goffin and Carole King songs. Goffin passed away and left behind an incredible pioneering work in rock’n'roll lyricism. Bobby Womack, who was born in Cleveland OH by the way, also passed away last month. Rock’n'roll audience probably knows him the best as the author of the Rolling Stones first no.1 hit It’s All Over Now, but he was also a great singer in his own right. The we say goodbye to two great jazz bassists. Charlie Haden was definitely one of the greatest in the world. Incredible list of collaborators will never be surpassed. For instance, we check out his most recent album with Keith Jarrett called The Last Dance. It came just one month before the news came about Haden’s departure. Miša Blam is the second bassist that passed away recently. He is not very well known outside of the borders of former Yugoslavia, but back home, he was regarded as the greatest one. And finally we also mention the passing of Paul Mazursky, definitely one of my favorite movie directors.

BettysooSummer’s here. The sun is shining, even here in Cleveland. I also noticed that there’s quite a few new tunes with summer vibes. So, today’s show is filled with (mostly) new, summer tunes. New records for this week include Little Barrie, a hipster trio from London with the new album Shadow. Not too far from there, in Glasgow, there’s a cool new power pop band called Dr. Cosmo’ Tape Lab. The Murlocks hail from Melbourne Australia. But the greatest new album featured today is Bettysoo’s When We’re Gone. Enjoy Summer, folks!

Byrds - Time BetweenToday’s show is a part of our Vinyl Junkyard serial in which we dedicate time to one LP that I’ve found dirt cheap collecting dust in some bargain bin box. The one we grabbed today is a tribute to the Byrds, called Time Between. It came out on Communion records in 1989 and it collected the cream of the crop when it comes to the alternative rock scene of the day, covering Byrds exclusively the songs written by the main original Byrds: McGuinn, Clark, Crosby and Hillman. In my mind, the highlight of the record is Thin White Rope’s version of Everybody Has Been Burned, but nearly every song marks more than a decent attempt at revising the old Byrds sound. This LP, together with the Husker Du single covering Eight Miles High did a great job of turning the younger audience to Byrds. And I was one of them.

Amy LavereToday we represent the brand new album by the phenomenal Memphis bass player Amy Lavere. She also participated in an interesting project called the 78 Project which is set around recording modern musicians by cutting directly onto a 78RPM acetate the way it was done back before the magnetic tapes were invented.

We also check out the new tune recorded by Frank Black and the Catholics, inspired by the great SST band called Angst.
