Back in April I had the pleasure of interviewing Black Cat Attack at Mini Pouzza in Toronto. Here we are 3 months later and I’m finally airing the interview. So tonight while you’re cracking your third beer listen in and hear what they had to say. I promise you that despite what you think you know about Black Cat Attack you will learn a whole lot more. Or at least you’ll get an understanding of why you know what you know. Oh, also, Cactus Vella makes a guest appearance. So tune in for that as well as some tunes by The AFterbeat, Fifi, Tijuana Bibles and more. Listen live from 8-9pm to CHRY 105.5 FM, online, TV (Rogers 945/Bell Fibe 973), or stream it later.
Musical implants that is. Implants the band. In the final instalment of Rock Fest interviews tonight we’re going to hear from Implants. For those of you who are unaware, Implants is a band consisting of members from the likes of Strung Out, Pulley, Ten Foot Pole, and more. A very hoarse sounding Steve talked to them about the band, current plans, future plans, and possible band name changes and new song titles. Tonight we’re also going to hear some Pantychrist (surprisingly a Mayhem first!), Circle Jerks, Dickies, and more. Way more. Listen live from 8-9pm EST on CHRY 105.5 FM, online, TV (Rogers 945 and Bell Fibe 973), or wait for the upload… But that’s less fun.
This week on Mayhem we’re continuing with more interviews from Rock Fest! I know, Rock Fest is like the gift that keeps on giving right? And don’t worry there’s still plenty more! This week’s gift is a two for one consisting of an interview with El Hefe of NoFX and a bonus interview with The Interrupters. Well, it’s not really a bonus… I planned for two and they’re both short interviews… So I guess there’s nothing really bonus-like about it. Sorry. Anyway, tune in from 8-9pm EST for those two interviews and other musical musics. Listen live to CHRY 105.5 FM, online, on TV (Rogers 945/Bell Fibe 973) or wait for the podcast later on (or listen to past shows while you’re waiting!)
…well Mayhem is always #1 in my book but this week’s episode features #2 from Anti-Flag. Some of you may have heard about this festival that took place just over a week ago called Rock Fest? Well I was there and I got to interview many a person and one of those persons was #2. We chatted about Rock Fest, his favourite Anti-Flag songs (from before he joined the band), and their upcoming greatest hits release among other things. Surprisingly politics never came up… Weird right? Anyway, listen live from 8-9pm this Wednesday to CHRY 105.5 FM to catch the interview and some new tunes from Dead Rejects, The Dirty Nil, and more. You can also tune in online, on TV (Rogers 945/Bell Fibe 973), or stay tuned for the podcast following the live broadcast.
This Friday Rock Fest kicks off in Montebello, Quebec. Are you going? You should be, it’s going to be off the hook as the kids say. In honour of Rock Fest this weekend, tonight I’ll be airing a new interview with Alex Martel, the founder of Rock Fest, who gives even more insight into the festival’s past and present. Along for the ride is a mixed bag of tracks including a very special first time air for Mayhem. It’s an old tune and hopefully something you haven’t heard before. Or if you have heard it you can understand why I would play such a track. Tune in and find out! Listen live from 8-9pm EST on CHRY 105.5 FM, online, TV (Rogers 945/Bell Fibe 973), or hit the podcast later.
Tonight on Mayhem we’re going to be getting a very special phone call from Green of the band Masked Intruder. Are we his one phone call? Or is he on the lam? We have no idea at the moment but what we do know is he’s going to be calling in to talk about Masked Intruder stuff, and other exploits. Also on tonight’s show I’m world premiering a brand new track by Dead Rejects off of their upcoming album “This is Killing Me” and I’ll also be spinning some new stuff from Every Time I Die as well. Tune in from 8-9pm to CHRY 105.5 FM in Toronto, online, or on TV (Rogers 945/Bell Fibe 973). The podcast will follow the show here.
Ralph Spight. You may know him from bands such as Victims Family and Jello Biafra and the Guantanamo School of Medicine. Well, he is calling into Mayhem tomorrow night! We’re going to be talking about his upcoming trip to Toronto with Jello Biafra and the GSM, and lots of other stuff. I’m going to be spinning a track off of last year’s White People and the Damage Done, as well as tunes from the likes of Big D and the Kids Table, Koffin Kats, and even Jimmy Cliff. Yes, that’s right, Jimmy Cliff. Listen live 8-9pm on CHRY 105.5 FM in Toronto, online, TV (Rogers 945/Bell Fibe 973), and the podcast will be posted following the show.
