In all sheer excitement, I decided to air the Elliott Brood interview in 2 parts because I had to endear three late concerts in 3 nights last weekend. Plus, the interview was the longest I have done as it went 16 minutes. The Elliott Brood concert last Thursday was crazy, hot, packed and rowdy. It was great to interview Casey and Steve because they were easy-going and funny. Highlights from the interview were food in Ottawa, their music, and mentioning Said The Whale from the previous interview.
Other mentions throughout the show were missing out on some good shows from the week before and prepping up for the You Say Party! We Say Die! and The Most Serene Republic concerts coming this weekend. I can’t stop playing any of the songs from the XXXX album by You Say Party! We Say Die!
Oh yeah, I played Ghosts by Silver Starling because I went to Bands Undone on Saturday, prior to the Ohbijou concert. On-air, I gave a nice shoutout to the two Brian’s (one being the photographer, who gave a shoutout back) and the awesome host, Kara Strang. She updated her entry with the video from the session. As I said previously, they sound like Arcade Fire and Young Galaxy. I even told my friend in Boston about the band to give them a try.
On the radio show, I started off with One by U2 because it was an historical week because of the anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall and then Wednesday being Remembrance Day. It was fitting enough to start a somber but powerful song.
You can listen to the full Elliott Brood interview in its entirety. I hope you will like it.

The reason I played One by U2 because I heard it on CBC Radio’s Q on Monday and Jian Gomeshi talked about Berlin and music. Here’s the video when U2 played in Berlin several days before the anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. One is such a powerful and beautiful song. It’s been awhile I have listened to the song on my iPod. I forgot to mention on-air which music video version I like. It’s the Anton Corbijn version where it was filmed in Berlin, Germany.
