Featured Artists

Well, of course, I have have to start off with my SLAVE to the SQUAREwave feature first! Here's a couple tracks that David played this week that I haven't already posted! First up is the great Hopeless Believers, followed by Big Change - both tracks are on their Big Change CD. The version of Big Change I'm posting is an extended version that was available on a promo.

Just in case you've just arrived on the planet, these guys are doing a show at the Diesel Playhouse in Toronto on June 15th - be there and be square!!

Now for some more tracks from the shows this week. I'll start with another track from the great Long John Baldry - A Thrill's A Thrill

Here's a great 'NY rarity that thankfully David continues to spin on a regular basis - the great track 'Toast' by Streetband (featuring vocals by none other than Paul Young!)

StreetBand - Dilemma

And another great track, Flash & The Pan's California

Flash and the Pan - Flash and the Pan

And here's one from The Lords of the New Church - Johnny Too Bad. These guys are another great overlooked band in my view. This is from their second album: Is Nothing Sacred? - just about all of their stuff is well worth a listen!

And yet another great track by the Comsat Angels - Day One

And one last item for tonight. David played the great track The Formula by Thinkman, which was essentially Rupert Hine. To find that album, along with additional Thinkman and Rupert Hine releases (you need to go back a month or two to find them all) - I strongly suggest you go visit R0bert P0land's Blog.

Hopeless Believers is one of the most beautiful post-80's songs I have heard. STTSW does such a great job with the synth/guitar combo. Love it!

ZShare won't let me download anything else. It's probably a "personal issue" - lol. I'll try again later. Thanks again for a great sampling of music.

PS - Hi ROb! :-)
