Sound & Groove: "Technology Tunes" Part 2

Podcast cover
Read more

Scottish-born guitar whiz and singer-songwriter, Bert Jansch. A pioneering force in the English folk movement starting in the mid-60s, he was often described as the "Hendrix of the acoustic guitar" and made highly alluring albums to back up that hype- ones that put him a cut above most on that folk scene indeed.

This is the 4th official podcast episode of 2019 here on the Sound & Groove Podcast. This is the 2nd in a 2-part theme on songs about technology. It's all part of another series of tremendous tunes you'll hopefully enjoy. And if you haven't been keeping up with S&G on Music of Evan's Mind and/or its home at www.notthepublicbroadcaster.com, here's the breakdown: 6 times a year there will be a theme that the selection of music is centred around. It will be jam-packed with my analysis, synopses, anecdotes and other witticisms you might enjoy while I play edited-down versions of each tune. And not to worry, because each will contain a different theme than the last. Got it? Get it? Good. Happy listening to you all.

Sound & Groove: "California On My Mind" Part 2

The royal couple of country music throughout (and even after) their marriage, George Jones and Tammy Wynette had a tumultuous relationship marked by an intense love that was marred by Jones's frequent serious bouts of alcoholism. They had their union play out on the stage and on record as well, where several of their duet album and single releases become C&W chart smashes. Even a divorce in 1976 didn't stop their collaborations entirely. One of their signature hits together is featured on this 2nd episode of S&G's "California On My Mind" theme.

This is the 2nd official podcast episode of 2019 here on the Sound & Groove Podcast. This is the 2nd in a 2-part theme on songs about California. It could be about somewhere, something or some aspect of the Golden Coast state but whatever the case, I've chosen the best for these 2 episodes. It's all fair game for another series of tremendous tunes you'll hopefully enjoy. And if you haven't been keeping up with S&G on Music of Evan's Mind and/or its home at www.notthepublicbroadcaster.com, here's the breakdown: Every month there will be a theme that the selection of music is centred around.

The criminally little-known but influential Los Angeles-based outfit X, which put out several tremendous albums in the first half of the 80s with a sound that may have been dubbed punk at the outset but showed a unique sense of melody, vocal harmony and cohesion missing from most music in the genre or the L.A. punk territory in general. Though they'd slowly veer toward a brighter, more rockabilly "cowpunk" type of sound before their first split as a group in 1986, X would endure as one of the truly original groups of that scene

The off & on leading force behind the influential UK prog rock outfit Van Der Graaf Generator as well as a prolific solo artist with over 30 solo albums in a 5 decade record industry career, Peter Hamill has been an odd, idiosyncratic beacon of creativity in his own unique right. From throaty, vocally extravagant pieces of long-form art rock to quiet, solemn, hymn-like compositions, Hamill has never failed to intrigue during his low-key yet vibrant career. One of his top cuts from the mid-70s makes an appearance on this particular S&G podcast- the official final one of 2018.

This is the 6th official podcast episode of 2018 here on the Sound & Groove Podcast. This is the 2nd in a 2-part theme on songs about flying.

A troubled, yet gifted and highly envied songwriter, Townes Van Zandt's career was often interrupted by long bouts of inactivity after the early 70s- mainly due to his battles with manic depression, drug and alcohol abuse that ultimately cut short his life at age 52 in 1997. But in his late 60s and early 70s prime, he formed into one of the preeminent figures of the growing singer-songwriter movement, but of the wing that consisted of musicians steeped in the country and/or bluegrass sensibilities of the South finding success with a folkier style that played to the coffee houses of hot spots such as San Antonio, Austin, Nashville and Memphis. One of his best tracks from his only studio album released between 1973 and 1986 (Flyin' Shoes) is featured on Part 1 of this S&G theme.

Back in the days before TSN and Sportsnet wiped out local sports programming, fans would get their fix from the faces and voices of guys— and some gals— on the conventional TV channels. In its heyday in the 80s, I was the guy on Toronto CBC TV, Joe Tilley worked late night CTV and over at Global Mark Hebscher partnered with Jim Tatti on Sportsline.

Mark now does his own podcast. Its called Hebsy On Sports, and he’s got his first book coming out next February. I thought it was a good time to get him here on The Full Count to talk about the biz, about the issues in my new book Cap In Hand and why independent voices are dead.

One of the more forgotten, overlooked, yet brilliant musical acts Australia has ever produced, the Go-Betweens never found substantial commercial success but brought indie credibility. Along with Nick Cave, represented a sudden musical boom in the 1980s out of the Queensland capital city Brisbane. Slowly emerging from their art-punk roots upon their 1977 formation into a shimmering, dreamy, jangly pop-rock band, the Go-Betweens put out a series of amazing albums in the mid-80s until a 1989 breakup. The split lasted 11 years until primary members Robert Forster & Grant McLennan reunited for 2 more albums under the name- a revival sadly cut short by McLennan's heart attack death in 2006.

This is the 4th official podcast episode of 2018 here on the Sound & Groove Podcast. It's a bit overdue but no need to worry, as I've pledged another 2 episodes yet to come throughout this calendar year. This is the 2nd in a 2-part theme on songs about the darker side of our nature, ie violence. So get ready for songs of murder, deceit, disgrace, riot, mayhem and general anarchy muhahaha. Oh, but also a treasure trove of delicious music to sink your teeth into.

In their mid-70s prime, Dr. Feelgood stood as arguably the most vital of the so-called "pub rock" acts to emerge. They were a grungy, cutting, sneering antidote to the polished, formulaic glam rock or treacly bubblegum pop dominating the charts at the time in the UK. Though bands like them harkened back to the devotedly pure R&B, blues, rockabilly and soul of the mid-60s British music scene, their uncompromising sound and attitude did actually pave the way for numerous punk and new wave bands who by decade's end were stealing the show (by then Dr. Feelgood was struggling to stay relevant , though doing so better than many of the glam bands they stood in defiance of).

This is the 3rd official podcast episode of 2018 here on the Sound & Groove Podcast. It's a bit overdue but no need to worry, as I've pledged another 3 episodes yet to come throughout this calendar year.

If anyone was expecting the Trump presidency to settle down they’ve been disabused of that notion. The non-stop attempts of his pursuers to trap Trump have only gotten more fevered as the second yea of Trump’s term has unfolded. 

Trump supporters point to the vibrant economy, his two Supreme Court nominees, his progress in North Korea, his rollbacks of Obama era over-reach and, most of all, the revelations that people inside the government talked openly of undermining his election.

Trump’s enemies point to the chaos at the border, his turbulent management style, his refusal to put distance between himself and Vladimir Putin, his exaggerations and now his tariff wars with friends and rivals in the world.

One thing is clear since Donald Trump was named President: no one has changed anyone else’s mind since the day Trump shocked the world in 2016.

Following Trump's Presidency up close and personal is Debra Saunders, a longtime columnist and reporter who’s the White House correspondent for the Las Vegas Review Journal with her work appearing across America in the Creators Syndicate outlets. She joined us in Year One on the Full Count with Bruce Dowbiggin, and we’re happy to have her back from her office in Washington, DC.

This is the 2nd official podcast episode of 2018 here on the Sound & Groove Podcast. It's long overdue but no need to worry, as I've pledged another 4 episodes yet to come throughout this calendar year. This is the 2nd in a 2-part theme on songs featuring first names in the title. As in, songs that mention a person's name like Steve or Martha or Rick or Emily (none of which I've actually used! But you get the picture). So check out some of my favourite tracks that fit with the motif I've come up with this time around.

And if you haven't been keeping up with S&G on Music of Evan's Mind and/or its home at www.notthepublicbroadcaster.com, here's the breakdown: Every month there will be a theme that the selection of music is centred around. It will be jam-packed with my analysis, synopses, anecdotes and other witticisms you might enjoy while I play edited-down versions of each tune. And not to worry, because each month will contain a different theme than the last. Got it? Get it? Good. Happy listening to you all.

All comments, questions and feedback are greatly welcomed and appreciated! I encourage participation. Even though I drain an hour off your life by listening to the podcast then checking through the links, at least you don't have to fork over your money to me... though if you feel like, you know... But in all seriousness, let me now what you'd like to hear or see and I'll consider it. Popular approval doesn't always sway me but having fans or listeners get their input would be just grand!
