Tuesday, February 25th, will mark Revolution Rock’s 8th annual Surf Rock program on CJAM 99.1 FM. The yearly program was initially started as a reason to incorporate a collection of Surf music that I had into the Revolution Rock radio program, which initially just featured 70s Punk and New Wave music only. I have since incorporated Garage Rock, Alternative, Indie, Surf and a variety of other sub related genres into the program on a weekly basis. The annual Surf program entitled Revolution Surf has however stuck, each year at the end of February I have one program devoted to this musical genre. This year’s program will also feature, as have past programs a special guest segment from Derk Brigante formerly of CJAM’s Surfphony of Derstruction, which now continues as a podcast online. This year’s program will feature a mini spotlight on Surf Rock from Japan with a focus on Japanese Instrumental Surf guitarist Takeshi Terauchi and his 1966 album with The Bunnys, Let’s Go Terry.

Revolution Rock Celebrates Black History Month: Grant Greens’ Solid

Grant Green SolidFebruary is theme month once again for Revolution Rock! For more information, visit the always intriguing and informative, Revrock.blogspot.ca. Click to learn more and listen to the first and second part of the series.

Grant Green is often viewed as an unsung hero of Jazz guitar and was very underrated during his lifetime. Green has been on a multitude of recordings both as a sideman and solo artist, which were primarily released through the Blue Note label. Solid was one of two albums recorded in 1964 (the other album being Matador), yet they remained unreleased during Green’s lifetime. The musicians on Solid were pianist McCoy Tyner and drummer Elvin Jones, both of which made up two thirds of John Coltrane’s rhythm section. Some felt that this album contains some of his Green’s finest work, but it remained unreleased for fifteen years before getting a proper release in 1979. This episode of Revolution Rock will feature a selection of tracks from this album, as well as a mixture of other genres in celebration of Black History Month.

Revolution Rock: Og Records Radio Feature

It Came From Canada vol1

February is theme month once again for Revolution Rock! For more information, visit the intriguing and informative, Revrock.blogspot.ca.

In 1983, Gerard Van Herk and Tony Dewald of the two piece sludegabilly duo Deja Voodoo formed the record label Og Records. This independent Canadian, Montreal, Quebec based label initially started releasing primarily cassettes, but quickly gravitated toward vinyl releases. This highly influential label would not only release material by Deja Voodoo, but also artists such as The Gruesomes, Terminal Sunglasses, and Jerry Jerry And The Sons of Rhythm Orchestra. Og Records is also notable for their highly sought after compilation series It Came From Canada. There were five volumes and the compilations were responsible for exposing bands such as Shadowy Men On A Shadowy Planet and Cowboy Junkies, who would later go on to achieve more mainstream successes. Og Records only ever had 29 releases and ceased operations as a label in 1990. This program will features a selection of music from this short lived label and an exclusive interview with co-founder of Og Records and Deja Voodoo Gerard Van Herk.
