    Catl Live Review

    I had the chance to see Catl and Jimmy Jazz, Guelph, on June 2nd, and am I ever glad I did. Their Bandcamp page describes them as “…a dirty, stripped down, juke-joint blues band that likes to drink, fight, and grind.” but that’s just the tip of the iceberg for this trio from Toronto. Here’s a studio/official sample, which is still great, but doesn’t quite paint the whole picture of what this band does, and does well.

    Catl is driven by the consistent pounding of Andrew Moszynski on drums that are loose sounding in style but driving in perfect rhythm. It’s almost as if the drums are being played in the bottom of a deep canyon, echoing all the way to your ears. The other members of the band, the guitarist, named catl (according their CBC Music page) and organ/percussionist Sarah Kirkpatrick share not only vocals but also engage the crowd in a way most bands can’t. Vocally they share their parts, either working together in harmony or trading off lyrics in what can only be described as a beautifully controlled wail. Catl, the guitarist, not the band, gets right into the deep groove of the drums, rocking in his chair so hard he almost falls out of it, only stopping to look at the audience when he has a lyric or slide guitar part he really wants you to pay attention to. His guitar sound is muddy and deep which adds an integrity to their Delta/Dirty/Dancing Blues style. There is no Bass player in the band but the sound of the Organ, Maracas, Tambourine playing Kirkpatrick, with her well timed audience engagement, doesn’t give you a chance to miss it. At times her stage personality is as big as her hair, or her heels, joining the crowd on the dance floor whenever she has a chance to.

    I like my blues when they’re a little loose or underproduced and I want to feel attached somehow. Catl‘s live sound makes me believe, that deep down, they really do have the blues, and so do I. I’ve just never had as much fun realizing it before. Don’t miss them if they come to a local watering hole near you.

    Catl are touring all throughout southern Ontario July & August 2012.

    Album Review: Alberta Burning

    I’ve had the great pleasure of seeing Your Neck Of The Woods live about a half dozen times over the past couple of years, so to be asked (I was going to do it anyway) to review their first full length album, Alberta Burning, for them is great for both of us. The album was released at the band’s favourite watering hole, Jimmy Jazz, at a sold out event on March 30, 2012.

    Alberta Burning opens with Prairie Ontario. A song that you would almost expect to hear on any one of Canada’s great East Coast bands albums but the lyrics switched around to celebrate their home province. As a song, Prairie Ontario has all the foot stomping energy that YNOTW bring to all of their live shows. Some might say that Alberta Burning as a whole sounds slightly under produced. I would disagree. In a day and age where everything could be perfectly mastered digitally, it’s nice to hear an album that sounds professional, without sounding mechanical, matching their brand of alt-Country perfectly. Dare I say the production imperfections make it sound better, adding a great human sounding element. I want this album on vinyl (hint, hint), all it’s missing is the odd crackle or hiss from an old turntable.

    Speaking of which, I love an album that you can listen to start to finish. This is one of those albums. At just over 41 minutes long Alberta Burning is the perfect length. The album starts off fun and upbeat gradually slowing right down in the middle with the heartfelt ballad Wintry Heart. The next song, Cabin In The Woods, almost had me thinking it was another ballad but gets counted in at the 45 second mark to be a great transition into on of my favourite tracks on the album which sets up the largest sounding song on the album, Liar. If you’re a band reading this, and are putting out a full length LP, remember, song order is important. Although some songs aren’t as strong as others on Alberta Burning, every song is an important piece of the experience, taking you up and down in waves of tempo, fun, intensity and vulnerability.

    Alberta Burning, and YNOTW for that matter, have something to offer any listener. Clever lyric writing, songwriting maturity, a well balanced album, vocal harmonies to rival Fleetwood Mac and a fun and energetic live show. With all this going for them I look forward to more great things from Your Neck Of The Woods.

    Key tracks: Sleepwalking, Alberta Burning, Cabin In The Woods, Liar

    My Life: Autobiographical Vol.1

    Looking for a playlist the other day, mixed with watching High Fidelity, again, I found a round of Name That Tune I had done for my birthday a few years back. An autobiographical playlist is way easier than reorganizing my records that way, not to mention it’s way easier to share a song at a time. The goal here is to get through all 40 songs before my birthday, March 7th. I did do some narrative between songs when I did this round of Name That Tune two years ago and I’ll try to recreate those points as best I can. I’m going to dedicate this first post in the series to my folks. Thanks for having such great taste in music!

    Birth!
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tm0nopK1BQM
    Three of the greatest things in the world happened in 1977. First, Fleetwood Mac‘s Rumours came out. I remember being around 20 years old and reading somewhere that it was one of the best albums of all time. I picked it up on a whim, mostly because it was in the 2 for 20 bin at HMV, or something like that anyway. As soon as I put it on I realized I knew almost every track. I had recently moved to Guelph so I had to give my parents a call to see if they played it a lot. Apparently I could hum/sing the words to the whole album, before I could actually talk properly. In 1977/78 it was the go to album whenever there was a gathering. I still love this album now, having traded in my CD for vinyl. It’s one of the three albums I listen to, by myself at 3am, on my actual birthday. I have a special, discontinued, bottle of scotch that I only drink at this time. It’s been my ritual for the last 8 years or so. I’m almost out of scotch. I’d be willing to try this one. Hint hint, nudge nudge, wink wink.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VMOhsvhF4Jw&feature=fvst
    Of course the second best thing that happened to 1977 was STAR WARS. Nobody really knew what it was and nothing had ever been done like it before. I’m lucky enough to have seen the film in it’s original glory, when it was re-released with Empire as a double header, before the explosions had giant rings, Jabba was C.G.I., and before DarthVader/Anakin Skywalker was a whiny little twerp!

    The last thing that happened in 1977 that was awesome? I was born!

    My First Concert

    In 1982, at the tender age of five, my parents decided that it was time to take me to my first concert. Actually, I’m pretty sure they didn’t have a choice. My Mom’s cousin, my second cousin I think, is Skip Prokop of Lighthouse. Meaning that all of my Aunt’s & Uncle’s, also known as babysitters, would also be attending their triumphant return to the stage. I know the show was at the old Ontario Place Forum, I know the stage spun around the whole show, and I know that the bass made me have to pee a lot. Uncle Skip is still touring with Lighthouse and making new music with his new band Mercy Train.

    In 2011 my Uncle Skip Accepts his SOCAN award for 100,000 radio plays 

    For My Folks
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5k3JVfxluFU
    The Autobiographical playlist also included a song each for my folks. For Dad, I picked Supertramp. They were one of his favourite bands when I was a kid. For Mom, it was a little more difficult. I don’t remember her being ‘attached’ to any one artist or band. We lived in a town of 400 people (Kirkfield, ON) and had limited access to radio and TV. I do remember this next song being played often. I’m not sure if it was just constantly on the radio or if there was a copy kicking around the house. I just remember it then, and still know all the words now.

    OFF THE FLOOR FEST!!!

    Eleven Presents…

    The fourth annual OFF THE FLOOR FEST!!!

    Last week I posted two shows in my blog. Both had a lot of readers. The 100 Mile Riot happened already, and was a huge success (I’ll try to get you details on $$$ raised, people through the door, etc.) and Ladies Of The Canyon, The Heartbroken & Ben Caplan happens on Sunday, so we’ll see how effective these posts are. Music Lives is here to try to support the music loving community so here is a bit of info on this weeks Off The Floor Fest!!!

    This event features eight (8!) bands spread out over 5 hours (at least). It also utilizes both first AND second floors of Van Gogh’s Ear. It’s also this Thursday, January 26th. The price is modest. $10 the door or $8 advance available at Hempire. Or $1/ band advanced, or $1.25/band at the door if you can’t be bothered to do the math. Doors are at 7:30pm. Go out for dinner first, you’ll need the energy. It is a 19+ event. Get a babysitter. We already gave away a pair of guest list  passes at Jimmy Jazz, Name That Tune, last Wednesday, and we’re going to do it again this Wednesday (the 25th)!

    Here’s the list of bands performing at set times:

    8 pm –> Hinindar (1st floor)

    8:30 pm –> The Dirty Nil (2nd floor)

    9 pm –> The Folk (1st floor)

    9:30 pm –> Sam Coffey & the Iron Lungs (2nd floor)

    10 pm –> Greys (1st floor)

    10:30 pm –> The Sweet Mack (2nd floor)

    11:10 pm –> Whale Tooth (1st floor)

    11:50 pm –> Teenage Kicks(2nd floor)

    According to the Facebook event, Off The Floor Fest has these people to thank:

    • GAIN Music – who are helping with production, which means this year is going to sound amazing.
    • Hempire – who have helped out with their generosity and overall radness.
    • Blake Stevenson – who has created the Off the Floor poster (that you see here) and logo for the second year in a row, and who is just a sweet dude whom we love dearly here at Eleven.

    So there is the run down on another great Guelph show. Remember you can WIN your way in to this show by attending Name That Tune Tomorrow at Jimmy Jazz, hosted by yours truly. If you have to do it the old fashioned way, and pay for your tickets, get them at Hempire or at the door and I’ll see you all at Van Gogh’s Ear.

    Show Review – Ben Caplan, Graydon James & The Young Novelists/Harlan Pepper

    Ben Caplan, Graydon James & The Young Novelists/Harlan Pepper

    January 5th & 12th, 2012. Jimmy Jazz.
    Two shows. Two consecutive Thursdays. Same venue. Same opening act. Based on the last two points I figured I roll my first two live show reviews into one. I’m consolidating the two shows featuring Ben Caplan, solo, as the opening act that were brought to us by Kaleidoscope Promotions, and performed at Jimmy Jazz. The first show saw Hamilton band Harlan Pepper closing out the night on January 5th, 2012 and the second being January 12th featuring Toronto band Graydon James & The Young Novelists.
    That Crazy Gypsy

    We’ll start with the opener both bands shared, Ben Caplan. If you already read my 2011 wrap up, you know how I feel about him. He’s not marketable in mainstream ways, but he doesn’t have to be. His hair, beard mostly, is almost so long it’s ridiculous. With some performers this could distract you from what most live music fans would call the important things, the music & the performance. But with Caplan it actually makes you curious. As soon as he walks on stage you’re intrigued, and then the music starts. His songs start with great storytelling that would make some of the greatest song writers jealous. Then they are mixed with an arrangement that allows the music to be performed on piano, guitar, sometimes banjo (if someone in the audience has one handy), saxophone or with his full backing band, The Casual Smokers. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing all of these things happen and the music was perfectly executed, not necessarily played, every time.

    Ben Caplan performing as Harlan Pepper look on.

    Which brings us to stage presence and performance. Ben Caplan is overflowing with both and his energy spills out onto the stage and out through the audience like he’s trying to drown you. I was at his November show in Guelph by accident and couldn’t take my eyes of him. I can’t quite put my finger on what he does to demand your attention. It could be the way he shakes his head, losing his glasses at least three times per show. It could be the way he emotionally tears his undersized suit jacket off at the peak of his second last song. I really can’t say. What I can say is that everything about Ben Caplan is unique in a way that that you know you were entertained, start to finish, throughout his set, but you’re not really sure why.

    The Young Novelists Do More Than Write Great Songs
    Featured as the headliner for the January 12th show, were Toronto band, Graydon James & The Young Novelists. I had seen the band open for Guelph band Among Millions, back in November. I have to say, I wasn’t a huge fan. I’m not sure if I was off, or maybe they were off. I have no idea. What I can say now is that my first impression was wrong! It seemed on this given night in January that a lot of people came to see Ben Caplan, as the crowd seemed to thin out considerably. If you stayed, good on you. If not, you missed out. Their music is an acoustic mix of rock that could be cherished by rock, folk and country fans alike. They mix up the faster tempos to keep people dancing and swaying until it’s time to slow things down, before they take you back up. I really love a live performance with a dynamic set list. Veteran bands will tell you. You can’t play at 11 all the time. Graydon James & The Young Novelists nailed it!

    Toronto Band Gradon James & The Young Novelists

    Musically they had improved by leaps and bounds about the previous time I had seen them. I know they are currently recording an album but they could have saved themselves the trouble and just recorded their set this past Thursday. They couldn’t have sounded tighter. As I said, the crowd did seem to dwindle, but it didn’t seem to matter. The Young Novelists played with fantastic energy, playing for thirty or fourty like they were playing for two hundred. A great performance, that kept my eyes on the stage, connecting with them in a way I couldn’t before. If Graydon James & The Young Novelists are going to work this hard to improve as a live band, there is no doubt in my mind that they’ll be around for a long time. I look forward to seeing them again and I have a feeling they’ll be even better!

    The Kids Are Alright

    Relax everyone, I am not using the word ‘kid’ as any kind of negative connection with Hamilton band, Harlan Pepper, and they are more than just ‘alright’. [Editors Note: For those of you that are musically challenged, ‘The Kids Are Alright‘ is the name of a song, recorded by The Who, in 1965.] Jimmy Jazz saw a packed house on January 5th, with good reason. Harlan Pepper‘s song-to-song styles vary from blues, folk, rock & country that are all done with a sound I can only describe as BIG! Their songs, while sometimes thoughtful and slower paced, have an anthem quality to them.

    A packed house for Hamilton band Harlan Pepper

    For a four piece band, barely 20 years old, they write and perform at a level beyond them in years. They keep their subject matter close to what they know, the Great Lakes, for example, but the music that accompanies the lyrics is nothing short amazing, no matter their age, or the listeners age. If you closed your eyes and listened you would probably picture a veteran band, like The Sadies, in the place of Harlan Pepper. They have a song-writing maturity and live sound that takes most bands years to perfect. The band’s stage presence is amazing as well. On a small stage, like that at Jimmy Jazz, they were a well oiled machine, always knowing where the other members were and sharing the spotlight accordingly. If you get a chance to see them opening for Elliot Brood in the next little while I highly recommend it.

    2011 The Review

    I don’t know about you but my 2011 was nuts. I left my first career, started working for Oaktree Media (Thanks for saving me Kelly!), started Music Lives. I’m sure I did some other stuff too but let’s get down to the good stuff. The music we saw, the hits we loved or plagued us and some of the musicians we lost. Me being me, I’ll start with the sad part.

    The Day The Music Died…

    This year we lost a pile of great artists but here are just a handfull. Gerry Rafferty, hopefully you’re playing now, of Stealers Wheel, and solo fame. Clarence Clemons, who played sax with Bruce Springsteen & The E Street band forever, and also had a #1 hit this year performing the sax solo on Lady Gaga’s Edge of Glory. Losing Amy Winehouse wasn’t a surprise to many although it’s always sad to lose such a talented person. Warrant‘s singer, Jani Lane, and Alice In Chains original bass player, Mike Starr , both fell victim to previous addictions mixed with depression. Check out Rolling Stone’s Memoriam for a better run down. Now, on to happier pastures.

    We’ll Do It Live!
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rK2_wi-lqAA
    I have to admit that I’m completely spoiled to have such an amazingly vibrant and diverse music scene right at my doorstep. Guelph rules for several reasons but this is one of them. There is at least 8 live music venues, all within a 5 minute walk of one another. I love it. Some of my favourite shows this year were as follows. Ben Caplan is the the east coast of Canada’s answer to Tom Waits, but a gypsy. A crazy, running around the venue without missing a note, kind of gypsy. I came to this show just to lend a hand to the promoter with almost no intention of actually paying attention to the show as I had other work to do. I could not take my eyes off of him. If you missed the show, which most of you did, you’re in luck. Ben Caplan will be opening for three different acts in January, Guelph. Get out and see him at least once. Two of my favourite live music moments came courtesy of local promoters GAIN Music. One was My Son The Hurricane, that opened for USS. Twelve people on The Vinyl stage. A full horn section. An MC?! Seriously, just watch all their videos and you’ll see the energy and awesomeness that is this band. The other moment I have to mention from this year is the Cancer Bats. AND I got to see them twice! Crazy energy, crowd interaction, great sounding, metal maniacs. The whole place erupted when they busted out their cover of The Beastie Boys, Sabotage, and with good reason. See these guys live before they get any bigger! Just check out this gallery. In fact this whole card was stacked.  Starting Music Lives has really opened my eyes to what makes a show or band connect with people. I could list all the amazing shows I got to be a part of this year, but then I wouldn’t finish this post until next year! Thanks to everyone that let me be behind the scenes of the scene I love so dearly.

    Big Ones

    Now we get to the actual charts. I keep a vague on these but take them with a grain of salt. It was a notable year for a few artists. Katy Perry tied Michael Jackson‘s record for most Billboard number one hits from one album with 5 (and she’s single again! I so have a shot!). If the video I posted, which is stuck at number four, hits number one, she’ll win. That’s quite an accomplishment for any artist. The fact that she writes her own songs makes it that much more impressive. Korn, a band I loved in 2000, was given a lot of metal honours this year, even though they released a Dub-step album. I guess sometimes it pays to take a risk. I’m not the keenest on the album, but I don’t mind the lead off single. You really can’t mention anyone in music this year without mentioning Adele. Not only was her album #1 on every notable music publication and listeners choice awards, but it also spent 50 weeks on the Billboard charts, with over 20 weeks at the top spot. It’s not too often that such a young person can sing with so much soul and put together a whole album that is fantastic start to finish. I believe every word she says.

    Happy New Year!!!
    Have a safe one everybody! I’m really looking forward to what 2012 brings to the table. It’s an exciting time for me in my life and I hope that Music Lives can continue to grow as I am. See you all in 2012. Thanks so much for your readership and support! Feel free to list your favourite albums, songs or concerts of the year below!

    P.S. I have a feeling I’ll be fist pumping to this later!

    Name That Tune Answers, Oct. 19,2011

    I know I was supposed to post this yesterday, but I got too busy seeing live music! The first 7 questions were taken directly from my blog posts A Special Tribute, and Once More…With Feeling! respectively. I do get silly by number 8 though. The number after the artist is the length of time, in seconds, I played the track, for our live studio audience.

    Songs For My Funeral
    1. Amazing Grace – Leann Rimes – 14
    2. Hallelujah – Leonard Cohen – 14
    3. Angel – Sarah McLachlan – 14
    4. My Way – Frank Sinatra – 8
    5. Hurt – Johnny Cash
    6. Pictures Of You – The Cure – 16
    7. Free Bird – Lynyrd Skynyrd – 6
    So this is where I went silly and started adding conditions for songs to be played…
    If I were to die, and never marry, and my League Of Evil Exes are at my funeral, and are mad I never married them, you could play this song…
    8. Single Ladies – Beyonce – 2

    If that song were played, this should be played right after, as a reason why I didn’t marry them. I would never say this in real life. So don’t mess with dead me, I go low-brow!
    9. Bitches Ain’t Shit – Ben Folds – 10
    If, for whatever reason, I’m buried in my leather pants (Yes, I have leather pants), play this song.
    10. I Remember You – Skid Row – 13
    I would be so lucky to die involving a misadventure involving the song title, and if I do, play this song at my funeral.
    11. S&M – Rihanna – 2
    If I died and went to heaven….
    12. Get The Party Started – Pink – 12
    Everyone I know would insist this be played at my funeral….
    13. Pretty Fly (For A White Guy) – The Offspring – 6
    If I found myself in the wrong place at the wrong time, and the mythical creatures from the Twilight series were having one of their battles, and I accidentally got killed. You could play the next two songs.
    14. Drain The Blood – The Distillers – 8
    15. Werewolves Of London – Warren Zevon – 9
    If I were killed by Zombies…
    16. Eat My Brain – The Odds – 9
    Died in a time machine accident…
    17. Power of Love – Huey Lewis & the News – 2 (That’s a Back To The Future joke BTW!)
    If I died today…
    18. Sexy And I Know It – LMFAO – 18
    Assassinated…
    19. Sure Shot – Beastie Boys – 6
    If I were to die in an explosion, from one of these, play this song…
    20. Time Bomb – Rancid 5

    Top Score 17.5/20            My Score 20/20

    Round 2
    The second round of Name That Tune involved dead artists/musicains including the five from my post The Show Must Go On.
    1. Foxey Lady – Jimi Hendrix – 9
    2. Riders On The Storm – The Doors 32
    3. Woman – John Lennon -12 Bonus Name his killer: Mark David Chapman
    4. Baba O’Reilly – The Who 4
    5. Dream Lover – Bobby Darin 9
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gdLn-QhRSB4
    6. Jesus Don’t Want Me For A Sunbeam – Nirvana – 8
