So yeah this is that awkward week before Christmas that is almost like Christmas but it’s not. There’s still work to be done. So on that note this is the last “new-ish” episode of Mayhem of 2014! I say “new” because it’s not old and I say “ish” because I’m recycling an interview. Oh and I say “last” because next week is the always fun Mayhem Xmas show and the week after that is the potentially heartbreaking year end countdown show. I’ll try to be gentle. This week though tune in to hear a very entertaining re-run of my interview with SNFU from this years Pouzza Fest. Recycling aside I am playing some songs that might as well be new. We’re going to hear some stuff from the likes of: Thulsa Doom, The Riverdales, Bouncing Souls and more. Listen live from 8-9pm EST to CHRY 105.5 FM in Toronto, online, Rogers 945/BellFibe 973, or podcast it.
Tonight on Mayhem I have Pantychrist calling in. This is pretty exciting for many reasons…but most importantly because for some reason it’s taken 6 years to happen. Why has Pantychrist never been on Mayhem? Good question. I have no idea. It’s happening tonight though so tune in! I also have some random post-hardcore lined up as well as some forgotten ska-punk from the GTA. Listen live 8-9pm EST to CHRY 105.5 FM, online, Rogers 945/Bell Fibe 973, or stream it later!
First off, my apologies for bailing on Mayhem last week. I was stuck drifting around Toronto in my car with my non-snow tires. I had a great show planned and it was a drag that I couldn’t make it happen. The good news is I’m going to air that show tomorrow! Hooray for recycling! So tomorrow’s show is exactly what I promised last week only this time instead of a phoner with $wingin’ Utter$ I’ll be airing part 2 of my interview with Joey Cape from a couple months ago. Woohoo! The other good news is that for those of you who were hoping to hear from $wingin’ Utter$ last week you’re going to hear from them NEXT week. See? it may have snowed and I may have chickened out but I still deliver the goods. And of course the purpose of this Lagwagon/$wingin’ Utter$ talk is because they’re in town this Friday! Noice. Listen live tomorrow night from 8-9pm EST to CHRY 105.5 FM and catch it all like the flu or Pokemon. Stream the show online, or listen to your TV (Rogers 945/Bell FIbe 973) too.
Or to all you hepcats – Mayhem $wings, daddy-o. But enough about that cool new Jazz music, let’s talk MAYHEM. On this week’s show we’re going to be hearing from the $wingin’ Utter$. They’re currently on a cross-Canada tour with Lagwagon and just released their new album, “Fistful of Hollow,” last week so it’s about time they pay a visit to Mayhem…over the phone of course. Tomorrow I’m also going to be delving back into music of Mayhems passed with some stuff that hasn’t been played since episode 18. We’re on episode 281 for those of you keeping track – so it’s been a while. Tune in to CHRY 105.5 FM from 8-9 pm EST and catch the madness. Listen online or on TV (Rogers 945/Bell Fibe 973) too.
So it’s that time of the week again! The time where you sit down and listen to MAYHEM on your radio. This week on the show we’re hearing from We Outspoken. They have an album coming out this week called Musicomania and we’re going to be talking about that. I’ll probably spin a track from it too…’cause you know…it just makes sense! I also have tunes from A Global Threat, The Filthy Radicals, and Koffin Kats on deck. So there’s that… *ahem* Listen live from 8-9pm EST to CHRY 105.5 FM. You can tune in over the interwebs and TV (Rogers 945/Bell Fibe 973) too.
Back in September I had the privilege of interviewing Joey Cape for the second time. We not only spoke about Lagwagon but about this thing called One Week Records as well. This week I’m airing the part of the interview where we talk about One Week Records. Joey is one of the best people to interview because…well…he talks a lot. So much so that I’ve managed to get two interviews out of one! Stay tuned because in the coming weeks I’ll be airing a second interview where we talk about the new Lagwagon album and tour. However, this week we’re solely going to hear about his cool new project that is not quite a record label; One Week Records. Listen live Wednesday night from 8-9pm EST to catch this and more on Mayhem. Tune in to CHRY 105.5 FM on your radio, online, on TV (Rogers 945/Bell Fibe 973), or just wait.
It’s Halloween on Friday! In honour of such a sacred holiday this week’s episode of Mayhem is dedicated to songs of the sci-fi/horror variety. That means you’ll be hearing a lot of psychobilly, right? Wrong. It’s a mixed bag and there’ll definitely be some surprises. Also on tomorrow’s show Toby from Red Scare Industries will be calling in to talk about their 10th anniversary, a new comp and a bunch of other stuff. I figured Red SCARE would be fitting considering it’s the Halloween show. So clever. So listen live from 8-9pm EST to CHRY 105.5 FM, online, TV (Rogers 945/Bell FIbe 973), or just chill til later. Also, remember you still have until this Saturday to donate to CHRY through Mayhem as we have just come off our annual fund drive!
