Start the Music! 015 – Shadow of Everest



 

This episode meets all Can-Con requirements as Kat is joined by all four members of Shadow of Everest, the band that this very podcast played a track from on its very first episode. We talk about being a band in Atlantic Canada, Tool, existing outside genres and their new EP “Idle Hands”. As well the track listing is full of bands from the Maritimes, who says they don’t put out great music?

Start the Music 014 – Music Break I



The first episode of Start the Music without a guest, but have no fear because that half hour of talking has been replaced with twenty-six shiny minutes of music from across the genres. Take it on a commute, listen on a lunch break, there’s something for everyone. For less than the cost of a latte in Canada you can own all these tracks.

Days before the episode dropped I got to see Trapper Schoepp live at the Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver, BC! An acoustic set with so much power! His song Bumper Cars is song number four, check it and the others out!

1. Fear – Americas Pastime

2. Back on Track – Counter Theory

3. I’m Right! You’re Wrong!! – The Sold! and the Bones (video)

Start the Music! 012 – Dominic Glynn (TV & Film Composer)



This episode of Start the Music! I get to geek out a little with Doctor Who composer Dominic Glynn. We talk about theme tunes, UK techno, and about being a musician spanning the bridge between analogue & digital. I also have the pleasure of playing one of his Doctor Who theme remixes that you will not want to miss. There’s music from a heavy metal super-group (do you like Black Sabbath?) and touching on the Canadian Maritimes with a track from Moncton, New Brunswick.

Start the Music! 007 – Chris Cote



This episode we’re going to bring some Southern California to your ears as I interview singer & bassist of the band Kut-U-Up on his way to grab some waves. Fun fact: This is the first interview I have ever done with someone in a wetsuit. We talk about the Pop Disaster Tour, quickly approaching the 15th anniversary of its last show (June 17, 2002) and the exploits of a band nobody knew accompanying two of the biggest pop punk bands of the time on tour. All that AND music from Chin Up, Kid & Sharp/Shock!


Music played on the podcast from their 2 song EP
