What a night, finks! The weather in Windsor was complete crap! It was dark and rainy as hell outside! The perfect weather for The Surfphony of Derstruction's FIRST-EVER theme show: MIDNIGHT IN SALERNO! We played all sorts of Nighttime Surf and it was good times! I had plenty of material to keep us goin', maybe even till midnight! Here's the playlist of what I did get to spin:
|urban surf kings||luger 3|
|the reverb syndicate||onto checkpoint bravo|
|the chesterfield kings||moon relay|
|the tempomen||midnight on pier 13|
|the bambi molesters||the kiss off|
|zz top||asleep in the desert|
|the debonaires||high wall|
|huevos rancheros||please pass the ketchup|
|deep note||sleeping with erik|
|atomic 7||seven stranded castanets|
|the ventures||music to watch girls by|
|mr gasser and the weirdos||midnight run|
|hula hoop||girls from ipanema|
|los straitjackets||della street|
|the reverb syndicate||m's lament|
HUH?!?! ZZ TOP?! What is ZZ TOP doing on DA SURF?! First of all, ZZ TOP is ol' skool kool! Second, ZZ Top consists of amazing instrumentalists and the track Asleep in the Desert attests to that.
I was really excited about playing this song and talking about it on-air but I missed my chance! So here, check it out again!
Unfortunately, I cannot post as many youtube videos this week as a lot of the tracks I spun are troublesome to find on youtube.
In other news, I will be filling in for Martin Schiller of Tacit Karaoke this Sunday, December 5th. Tacit Karaoke is an all-instrumental program on CJAM 99.1 and I will adhere to the instrumentality! Not surf though, but something else... tune in to find out! THIS SUNDAY @6 PM on CJAM 99.1!
One more thing, SOCAN tracking period is coming up this weekend! December 5,6, and 7th! The Surfphony is on during this period so next week is an impromptu theme show! I will be spinning all Canadian surf bands in hopes that they are registered with SOCAN and get some money from the gov'! So, if you happen to be a Canadian surf band member reading this blog, Register for SOCAN and let me know that you want your tracks played!
Here's a Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet video to celebrate Canuck Surf!!
