The Ongoing History of New Music, Episode 731: Bent Bands
There are some artists about which you might say
You know what I mean? And you probably have a list of such artists rolling in your head right now: groups that are a bit…bent. Odd. Weird. Far left-of-centre. Eccentric. But they’re not novelty acts; they just look at the world through very strange eyes.
I’ve assembled eleven such acts–eleven because it’s appropriate that we pick an odd number–from the alt-rock world that plumb the more bizarre reaches of alt-rock.
The Ongoing History of New Music can be heard on the following stations:
- 102.1 The Edge/Toronto – Sunday night at 7, Monday night at 11 with archives show Tuesday and Wednesday at midnight.
- Live 88-5/Ottawa
- 107.5 Dave-FM/Kitchener
- FM96/London – Sunday night at 7, Monday night at 11
- The Drive/Kingston
- 98.1 The Bridge/Lethbridge – Saturday night at 6, Sunday morning at 10am
- Rock 97.7/Grand Prairie – Sunday nights at 6.
- Sonic 102.9/Edmonton
- The Zone/Victoria
- Live 105/Halifax
We’re still looking for more affiliates in Vancouver, Kamloops, Kelowna, Red Deer, Regina, Saskatoon, Brandon, Windsor, Montreal, Charlottetown, Moncton, Fredericton, and St John’s and anywhere else with a transmitter. If you’re in any of those markets and you want the show, lemme know and I’ll see what I can do.
Things are looking good for a debut in Singapore in January. And at least one US station wants to come on board. Anyone else? Love to hear from you.
