Local CDs A-Z continued (out of order): D. Rangers - The Paw-Paw Patch (2006, @dollartone). I saw these guys live a few times back in the day, but unfortunately this is the only one of their CDs I have. Really excellent “mutant bluegrass”, although some of my favourite tracks on here are the more straight-ahead folk numbers. This thing is 12 years old, and as far as I know, it’s their most recent release... so it’s probably safe to assume they are now defunct? (EDIT: Turns out they are absolutely NOT defunct. Cool!)

Friction Love Corps “Smoked Salmon BBQ” Pilash Records 1994. CD. I have to admit that when I first picked this album up, judging from the band name and cover art, I expected it to be a metal band. Or maybe some garage punk. Instead I discovered this was bluesy, funky rock and roll. The album is dedicated to the memory of Frank Zappa who passed away in 1993 (so long ago!) which gives you some idea of their influences. I like “Old Man Hapless,” “A Little Too Much,” and the folky title track “Smoked BBQ Salmon.” #winnipegmusic #manitobamusic #winnipegbands #winnipeg #music #mbmusic #garagebands #garageband #canadianmusic #🇨🇦 #204 #431 #cd #cds #cdcollection #musiccollection #musiccollector #musicjunkie #yesistilllistentocds #studio11 #frictionlovecorps

Frenzee “Overpowered and Unarmed” Studio 11 Inc. 1999. CD. A local Winnipeg band, primarily power pop rock, although they throw in a couple softer tracks. In many ways this reminds me in parts of 1970’s rock and roll blended with a boy band. “Overrated” is okay, and reminds me of Cheap Trick a little. “Now it Seems (Lisa’s Song)” is pretty good and seems to have the best overall production so I think they put a lot of work into this song in particular. “Pretend” is a nice gritty number which starts off with some pretty catchy drumming. #winnipegmusic #manitobamusic #winnipegbands #winnipeg #music #mbmusic #garagebands #garageband #canadianmusic #🇨🇦 #204 #431 #cd #cds #cdcollection #musiccollection #musiccollector #musicjunkie #yesistilllistentocds #studio11 #frenzee

Local CDs A-Z continued (out of order): Quinton Blair - Cash Crop (2016). There’s not much more I can say about the big homie @quintonblair, other than that I can’t recommend him highly enough (especially live). In a genre where a lot of folks wear their “countryness” as a rehearsed affectation, Q is the real deal — a legit country singer who lives the story-songs he plays. One thing that always comes up on the podcast is that local music fans (of any genre) crave authenticity... and the songs on this EP are authentic AF (in the parlance of our times). Just pure country vibes from a guy who has earned all of his accolades.

Local CDs A-Z continued: Raine Hamilton - Night Sky (2018). I don’t know why I’m bothering to post folky stuff during Folk Fest weekend when no one is around, but this is what’s next on the list. This @rainehamilton album is definitely going to be on my year-end list of best local records. When I interviewed Raine earlier this year, she said the main difference between this and her previous album of chamber-folk is that this one is more “chamber-y”, which is definitely accurate. It’s still folk music but the strings/classical elements are more prominent and seem to have more bite to them, especially on tracks like “Robin Hood”. Beautiful songwriting and fantastic graphic design/album packaging. Highly recommended.

Local CDs A-Z continued: GROSS - Incoming Transmission!!!! (2007? A1 Records) Another band I (briefly) played in, although I can’t take credit for any of the songs, nor did I play on this glorious record of outer space-themed skinhead reggae. Pretty sure I still remember some of the organ riffs, though! Despite the obvious novelty factor of a lot of these tunes, the album still holds up really well (as I would say), and is one of the highlights of the A1 Records (RIP) catalogue. Looooong out of print, but if you really want this, message me and I’ll hook you up with a link to download it.

Margaret Fonseca “Primal Virtue” Hypnodelic 2018. Vinyl. Here we have half a Ruggedy Annes reunion! The songs are copywrite 1990 so this might be a reissue. But who cares? Margaret Fonseca and Debbie Wall are part of Winnipeg’s punk rock history as members of one of the first all female punk line-ups from Canada. The album brims with raw punk rock energy and also with softer more reflective songs which tend to employ a koto. I like “A Child,” “Damaged Goods” and “Guardian.” #winnipegmusic #manitobamusic #winnipegbands #winnipeg #mbmusic #garagebands #garageband #canadianmusic #🇨🇦 #204 #431 #vinyl #vinylrecords #vinyllp #vinylcollector #vinylcommunity #vinylcollection #lp #lps #record #records #recordcollection #33rpm #musiccollection #album rocknroll #rockandroll #punkrock #margaretfonseca #ruggedyannes

Floor Thirteen “Mmmm!” C4 Records 2008. CD. Local pop rock outfit. The music is all pretty catchy and production is solid: they sound like they were looking to break into the mainstream market. For some reason this wouldn’t play in my stereo CD player but worked fine in my discman - yes, I still have one. I like “Let it Go” and “Blame it on Me.” “Night Train” is also pretty good. Their lead singer Jeremy Koz was also a Canadian Idol contestant. #winnipegmusic #manitobamusic #winnipegbands #winnipeg #music #mbmusic #canadianmusic #🇨🇦 #204 #431 #cd #cds #cdcollection #musiccollection #musiccollector #musicjunkie #yesistilllistentocds #rocknroll #rockandroll #rockmusic #poprock #floorthirteen

Finjan “Crossing Selkirk Avenue” Fat Uncle Records 1992. Cassette. Lively whirling dervish Klezmer music from Winnipeg. Some original material but mostly versions and revisions of more traditional material. I like “Abi Gezunt,” “I Wanna Fellow” and “Shpiel Klezmer, Shpiel.” The song “Greenhorn Blues” is more of a bluegrass tune to me, melding what sounds like the “Orange Blossom Special” and “Hava Nagila,” which comes off sounding pretty good. Of course I am a sucker for the “OBS.” If you like gypsy music, you’ll enjoy this. #winnipegmusic #manitobamusic #winnipegbands #winnipeg #music #mbmusic #canadianmusic #🇨🇦 #204 #431 #klezmer #folkmusic #cassette #cassettes #cassettetapes #cassettetape #musicaddict #musicjunkie #cassettecollector #cassetteculture #tapes #finjan

Local CDs A-Z continued: Grandpa’s Army - G Sides & A Sides (2000, Borracho Records). My old late ‘90s ska band. Absolutely unnecessary two-disc collection of almost everything (listenable or otherwise) that we ever recorded. Sold at our last show in 2000. A few copies still floating around out there. The “G Sides” disc is raw garbage — mostly basement recordings (on a boom box) of half-finished song ideas or weird jams. “A Sides” includes the 1999 four-track demos plus a bunch of live-off-the-board recordings from various shows at @thewecc. It’s weird to listen to this stuff ~20 years later. I still like some of the songs (“Train to Hicksville” and “The Disadvantages Of Eating Too Much Honey”, in particular), but a lot of it (especially the sloppy playing) is just bad. That being said, I still have fond memories of playing in this band, and as the late ‘90s was the peak of the third-wave ska thing, we played to some pretty huge crowds at times. None of my subsequent bands came anywhere near that kind of (local) recognition.

The Farrell Bros. “. . . Go to Hell!” No label information 2000. CD. This is 5 song EP put out by Winnipeg’s premier rockabilly band - although they hail originally from Selkirk, MB. Led by brothers Shawn and Gordie, they remain true to their genre. I’ve bumped into them occasionally outside of their gigs and they’ve always been decked out in their finest “greaser” outfits and hairstyles. This is not some stage gimmick- this is their lifestyle. They also used to host a radio show on Friday afternoons (I think it was called “Rumble at the Opry”) at @ckuw_959fm which focussed on rockabilly past and present: these guys were very knowledgeable in this field and I enjoyed listening to them. I often wonder that it didn’t get syndicated. Anyway, on to the music: if you like some hootin’ and hollerin’ then this is for you! They do a couple original tunes and some covers. Their version of Hank Williams’ “I Saw the Light” is pretty good as is their spirited rendition of the Louvin Brothers’ “You’ll be Rewarded Over There.” Their original “(I’m on the) . . . Go to Hell!” Is fantastic! Yea-Haw! #winnipegmusic #manitobamusic #winnipegbands #winnipeg #music #mbmusic #garagebands #garageband #canadianmusic #🇨🇦 #cd #cds #cdcollection #musiccollection #musiccollector #musicjunkie #yesistilllistentocds #rocknroll #rockandroll #rockmusic #rockabilly #pyschobilly #selkirk #204 #431 #farrellbros #thefarrellbros

“Farewell 274: Winnipeg’s Jazz Community Celebrates Aqua Books” Know-a-sad Music 2013. Compilation. Various artists. CD. Thanks to @witchpoliceradio for alerting me to the existence of this little item, although I admit I am in Doucette’s camp when it comes to most jazz. I appreciate the talent and craftsmanship that jazz musicians bring to their music — it just doesn’t churn my butter is all. Having said that, “The Floods Don’t Wait” by Rayannah Kroeker and Karl Kohut, with its light scatting, is nice. I also like “Listen to Your Love” by the Karl Kohut Electric Quartet, which sounds like they ran the vocals through a vocoder. The Aaron Schorr Quartet’s “Living in the Sims” is good, although it tends to meander at times. Overall a good sampler of the local Winnipeg jazz scene. #winnipegmusic #manitobamusic #winnipegbands #winnipeg #music #mbmusic #canadianmusic #🇨🇦 #cd #cds #cdcollection #musiccollection #musiccollector #musicjunkie #yesistilllistentocds #jazz #jazzbands #jazzmusic #compilationalbums

The Fabulous Kildonans “Bottle Rocket” Transistor 66 Record Company 2006. CD. Local band. Muscular power punk rock and roll. Reminds me of Nashville Pussy a little. I like the title track. “Marktember Rain?” reminds me of the Dropkick Murphys - without the Celtic influences. They also cover Agent Orange’s “Bloodstains.” They close off with an anti-love song “Still All My Fault” which is a pretty good song. I think (could be wrong) this is their only release but they may have appeared on a compilation or two. #winnipegmusic #manitobamusic #winnipegbands #winnipeg #music #mbmusic #garagebands #garageband #canadianmusic #🇨🇦 #cd #cds #cdcollection #musiccollection #musiccollector #musicjunkie #yesistilllistentocds #rocknroll #rockandroll #rockmusic #hardrock #punkrock

Local CDs A-Z continued: Futurekids - This is Everything (2015, Niagara Studios). This is still @futurekidsband, but the changes from the first album to this one are significant enough that it could be considered an entirely new band. Only the rhythm section of @nicholastronaut and @ianpeters369 remain from the previous incarnation, and new members @pilgrim_paul and @kaeleighjoyayre bring a much more upbeat pop vibe to the proceedings. If you dug the melancholy of the OG Futurekids, this might be a surprising listen. Both versions are good... just very different.

Local CDs A-Z continued: Futurekids - Say Goodnight to the Machines (2014) No offense to the later lineup (which I also dug), but this version of @futurekidsband is my favourite. Shimmery guitars, plaintive vocals, and lots of hooks. Really solid little record. Shoutout to @nicholastronaut and co. for the unique envelope-style DIY packaging, too.

Local CDs A-Z continued (obviously bouncing way back to A here): The Autopilots - 10¢ Lemonade (2014). When I was interviewing @northernroyals last night, we talked about their previous incarnation, the Autopilots. They were forced to change the name for copyright reasons (and have since altered the lineup and some of the sound), which means they were stuck with a big stack of CDs under the old name. They gave me a bunch of them as prizes for (future) Witchpolice contests, so stay tuned. If you dig straight-ahead, radio-ready alt-rock, this is up your alley.

Local CDs A-Z continued: Filthy Animals - Sounds of Nature (2010, Deepcave Records) Full disclosure: I’ve never been a huge fan of @filthy.animals.4life or the Deepcave stuff in general (with a few exceptions), but I have always respected the hell out of their hustle. Great marketing (the Deepcave logo is fantastic), constant stream of releases, tons of music videos, etc. They nailed the punk rock DIY thing and applied it to local hip-hop 👍. As far as the music goes, a lot of it just isn’t my kind of rap, to be honest. I picked it up back in the day mainly to support my old college classmate @broms.the.poet (one of the three Animals), and my take on it upon re-listening remains essentially the same: I dig some of the beats, I think @pnutty.gold raps circles around the other two guys, and as someone who doesn’t drink and doesn’t really enjoy parties, I’m just not the target audience for a record about drunken partying. Haha. Again, though, full marks for the DIY stuff. Some of the videos for this record are incredibly well-made, and the hustle is something a lot of independent artists should aspire to.
