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. The project was started by Lavinia Jones Wright and Alex Steyermark as a nod to the great American blues archivist Alan Lomax. We also check out the new tune recorded by Frank Black and the Catholics, inspired by the great SST band called Angst. Alvin brothers Dave and Phil, the founding members of the Blasters, are back together with a new album called Common Ground and it’s all about the Big Bill Broonzy old songs. Finally, we represent a piano and drum duet from Chicago, The Claudettes.
