IR: San Francisco #48 – Of Canada, the 80’s, and Murphy’s Law

IR: San Francisco

Why such a weird title?

1. Three of the bands featured on this week’s show hail from the Great White North.

2. All the music has a distinctly 80’s new wave/post-punk type of feel. To me, at least.


Let me clarify the latter: Oh, the show got recorded all right (obviously, or you wouldn’t be reading this). However, my normally faithful Garageband crashed, resulting in re-recording. The phone rang in the middle of the show. I accidentally inserted the same song twice, resulting in lots of post-production work, cleaning up edits, insert points, volume levels, and artwork for the Enhanced version. And as usual, I fumble and stumble and tumble all over my words. [Sigh…]

I hope it was all worth it! (scott at insomniaradio dot net)
