Montreal quartet Heat brought their early 80s NYC style jangle to the CJLO studios to perform live on Hooked on Sonics. Hot off the heels of their debut EP, and already getting a lot of attention - even down south and across the pond - the band posted up in The Oven and performed two songs from the recording as well as two brand spankin' new tunes.
A few days into their first North American tour, Angelica from BVST sat down with Uncle Acid himself, Kevin Starrs, to talk about the perils of the music industry, the price of fame, and 1960s girl bands. Delve into the mind of one of the (previously) most mysterious men in rock, and tune in, turn on and drop some Acid with BVST, this Wednesday, October 22nd at 7pm, only on CJLO 1690AM!
Blue Skies Turn Black, I Love Neon, and yours truly CJLO 1690 AM present the Constantines this Saturday, October 4th at Le Belmont (4483 Saint-Laurent). The band is back after a four-year hiatus, and this is the reunion show to end all reunion shows! Come on out and celebrate the 11th anniversary of their sophomore album, Shine a Light, and get sparkly with special guests Cousins and your friends from CJLO...
Salif Keita, surnommé le rossignol de la musique Mandingue, ou encore la voix d'or d'Afrique, est a la fois Prince, albinos et chanteur. Il a également les mêmes initiales que Soundiata Keita, l'un des héros de l'épopée Mandingue. Cette épopée est chantée par les griots qui sont de cette culture.
Who Will Cut our Hair Now that The Unicorns are Gone?
Excitement and energy filled the Metropolis concert hall on the night that The Unicorns played Montreal after a ten-year hiatus. I walked into the room feeling nostalgic with memories of listening to The Unicorns as a teenager, but I had no real idea of what to expect from the live show. I heard amazing stories from my roommate who recalled seeing the guys in 2004 at a show in Toronto where they invited a random, rough-looking man on stage to drum for them, only to find out that he had excellent rhythm. I kept this story in the back of my mind.
