Hello Hello Hello!
That was the first episode of Rocket From Russia in the new time slot. Starting this week the show will be aired every Tuesday at 10:30am PST. I dont think it really matters for podcast listeners, but if youre listening to the show live this could be a relatively useful piece of information.
Unfortunately, I started off the show with very sad news. The singer of an amazing Canadian punk band The Rebel Spell tragically passed away this weekend. This is extremely sad news because Todd was young and he definitely had a lot to write and sing about, and in general he was a very important member of Vancouver punk scene and simply a great human being. I had Todd on the show when Its a Beautiful Future came out in 2011. We were talking about doing another interview in support of Last Run, but never matched our schedules. My deepest condolences to Todds family, friends and The Rebel Spell members. This is very very sad
The first block includes new punk rock music from Finland and Germany - Quarterback 40 (Germany), Juustopäät (Helsinki, Finland), Betontod (Rheinberg, Germany), Montreal (Hamburg, Germany), Pertti Kurikan Nimipäivät (Helsinki, Finland).
In the second block I focused on recent releases from Stomp Records - The Isotopes (Vancouver, BC, Canada), East End Radicals, BOIDS, Dig It Up (All Montreal, QC, Canada).
And in the end of the show I did two ticket giveaways to Bum and Flamin Groovies @ Rickshaw and Safe and Sound, Open Letters, Stay Choked, Leveler @ 333
