Sounds of the hall in roughly 33 1/3 minutes!

I’ve always felt that bands from Minneapolis, Montreal, Buffalo, and other cold or snowy weather towns should receive a Scout badge for their winter weather skills. When loading your gear into the club from the van do you leave your coat off and freeze or do you keep your coat on and sweat your ass off? It’s a no win situation.

    Loved that Poppy Family track – I’ll have to look them up.

    Here’s another wintery Canadienne song for ya:

    Thank goodness, you didn’t post “Cold as Ice.”

    The Poppy Family were certainly one of the inspirations for Mitch & Mickey from A Mighty Wind. Where Evil Grows is a great track from them.
    Jane Siberry is a whole lot of quirk.
    Thanks for listening.

  3. No love for “Winter” by the Dodos?

  4. ladymisskirroyale

    Aren’t the Dodos from SF? It’s been a very warm winter here so far…

  5. Is Terry Jacks (“Seasons in the Sun”) behind The Poppy Family? That was a cool track; this is a great episode. As much as I don’t like cold weather, Christmas is around the bend. Here’s hoping your mix will drive temperatures in the suddenly tropical Philadelphia area back down to at least sweater-weather levels.

  6. Duh, you announced that Terry Jacks was in The Poppy Family! Second time’s a charm for people who don’t always pay full attention.

    I like The Gore Gore Girls’ version of Where Evil Grows:

    Great show! Love hearing Stiv cover another Cleveland band.

  8. Thanks for including Ice Cold Ice — for some reason it always brings a smile. I saw Husker Du once at First Ave. it was about 25 below — one of the things I don’t miss about Mpls.
