Vague Terrain Audio Editions 6 : Turner of Wheels

Turner of Wheels

The sixth Vague Terrain Audio Edition has been released! Contributed by Montreal-based Shane Turner (aka Turner of Wheels), “Blotted” chops up a selection of found vocal material and incorporates it into a series of cascading rhythm tracks that (at times) evokes comparisons to leftfield dubstep and some of the classic output released on Phthalo records.

COLIN STETSON ON NEW SHIT & A SILENT ACTION FILM, MON FEB 7


Tune in to CKUT this Monday February 7 from 3-5pm for New Shit or 11pm-1am for A Silent Action Film when we will be airing a short feature and fresh interview with Colin Stetson.
The wildly talented and utterly unorthadox horn player and composer dropped by CKUT over the weekend to talk with us about his forthcoming album New History Warfare Vol. 2: Judges (out Feb 22, but already receiving heavy spins on CKUT’s airwaves), his approach to playing and writing music, high-school saxophone teachers…
We will also feature some tracks from the yet-to-be-released album.
Stetson will be playing live in town this Thursday Feb 10 at the Sala Rossa with Tim Hecker.
New History Warfare Vol. 2: Judges comes out on Constellation Records on February 22.

BLACK HISTORY MONTH PROGRAMMING ON ROOTS ROCK REBEL

Tune in to Roots Rock Rebel Every Wednesday night in February from 10-12pm February is Black History Month, and as we do each and every year on Roots Rock
Rebel, we bring you programming, music, and interviews which celebrate the
contributions that the tiny island of Jamaica has made in music around the world.

Wednesday, February 2nd – A conversation with Fritz Williams Listen!
The father of celebrated Montreal-based DJ and music historian Andy Williams, Fritz
was on one of the first ships (The Santa Maria) of Jamaican migrants which sailed to
England in 1957. In our extended interview, he spoke about the socio-economic
conditions that early Jamaican migrants to the UK were forced to live under (baaaad
baaad housing, lack of jobs), the club scene in the Midlands, fashion, and of
course, reggae music!

Wednesday, February 9th – Nantali Indongo aka. I am Black Girl (Nomadic Massive)

Not only an artist with the celebrated hip-hop ensemble Nomadic Massive and a regular contributor to Community Contact, Quebec’s major English-language black community newspaper, Nantali is an alternative educator using hip-hop culture as a
contemporary educational tool. While institutional education tends to stick to set
curricula and rigid social codes, Indongo, co-founder with Maryse Legagneur, of the
“Hip Hop No Pop”program has been invited to tour high-schools and CEGEP campuses and
teach workshops on more relevant topics to youth today, including the history of
hip-hop, sexuality and language.

Nantali will join us live in the CKUT studios to discuss West Indian diasporas in
Montreal, and using music as a tool for education and social change.

Tune in to Roots Rock Rebel every Wednesday from 10pm-12am EST this February to
enjoy this programming and much more, plus plenty of great old school vibes from
Jamaica! In the Montreal area, tune in at 90.3FM, or stream it live at
www.ckut.ca/listen.php everywhere else!
