Doug GillardAs you probably know by now, every Thursday, Zagreb radio staion Radio SC takes over this podcast and broadcasts it in their lunch-time time slot. So, in some ways, my local scene is now Zagreb, maybe even more than Cleveland. Therefore, todays show pays a special attention to three Zagreb bands – legendary Babies and two new bands Vex and The Voxtones and The Backstreet Brats. The Voxtones are a power pop deal and The Backstreet Brats are inspired by the 70s CBGB scene and Australian garage sound. All three bands also share a few members amongst each other, creating an rock’n’roll collective if you will… Now that I mentioned the Australian garage sound, in this show we bring you the newest representative in a Melbourne duet called City of Cool. Their self-titled debut ep contains songs that show a respect for the 80s underground that gravitated around SST, with a great songwriting ear for a good melody. Cleveland born Doug Gillard appears in today’s episode with his new song From What I’ve Done. Our old Italian friends Cheap Wine also have a new album. They call it Spirits. Cheap Wine greet us with a glass of good (but cheap) alcohol raised high in their songs celebrating the state of tipsiness. There are some good covers on it too. Today we check out their version of Pancho and Lefty. And the last, but not the least, we check out Big Star and Beatles reissues. Check it out!
