Marble Indexing, and show #128


On this weeks show I played a variety of Canadian bands that I've never played before; I'll just mention a few of them. The Marble Index are a three-piece from Hamilton, Ontario. They first started in 2001, the band some say sound garage rock. They are just a good fashioned rock n' roll band, some of their influences range from The Clash, The Jam, The Who, and many other Canadian artists. Their most current release is Watch Your Candles, Watch Your Knives. I played the song "All That I Know" from this album.

Next up, The Ride Theory. They are yet another band from Hamilton, Ontario. They are also fairly newer, they first started out in around 2002, and released their first album, The Ride Theory that same year. The song that was played on tonight's show was "I'm On Board", which is a song from their current 2006 release, In This City. They sound kind of garagey like Marble Index, but they have more of an edge, they sound post-punk almost. You can tell by listening to the band that they liked Iggy Pop and the stooges, and early punk rock. They are also influenced by surf rock.  (Note:  The Ride Theory are now known as Young Rival.)

Two other quick notes, the song "Olio" by The Rapture is not the same version as on their 2003 album Echoes. It was a more rock version of the song from their 1999 album Mirror. Finally, the song "Love Reign O'er Me" was a cover that Pearl Jam did for a new Adam Sandler movie of the same name. It can be found on their most recent Christmas single.

Next week I will be doing a show devoted entirely to the Canadian band Sloan. Sloan are playing a concert at St. Andrews Hall on January 20th. So if you'd like make a request for next weeks show by leaving a comment at the end of this post, I will play the song you want next week.
