Check out the website that has risen like a phoenix from the ashes of the Anglo paper weekly, the Montreal Mirror: Cult MTL!
From the website:
We all worked at the Montreal Mirror, either in editorial or as freelancers or both. Our aim is to serve Montreal as we used to, but with a fresh format and voice. We will deliver daily coverage of the city, from news to culture to event listings and recommendations for things to do, see and hear. Because there’s never a shortage of stuff to do, just a shortage of savvy voices to steer you to the best of it.

You think it’s hot outside right now? Wait until the 21st Century Schizophone hits the airwaves for its third outing. This week we present an extended meditation on questions of identity as mediated by sound technologies. In the first hour we set the flux capacitor on the captain’s chair to 1985 from whence the 12 year-old version of your host Randolph Jordan will guide us through a Gerstyn Hayward mix-tape including radio, turntable and tape experiments by Konstantin Raudive, William S. Burroughs, Brion Gysin, Genesis P-Orridge, John Oswald, Steve Reich, Terry Riley, Crispin Glover, Philip Jeck, and The Son of Schmandolph vs. The Human Ick, capped off by a live vinyl butchering session as the present-day R.J. hacks through a stack of spoken word records on the CKUT decks. And in the second hour we’ll be joined live in studio by special guest Nicole, phone-sex artist extraordinaire who will demonstrate her vocal talents while we muse about the soundscapes of auditory arousal and the slippery nature of identity when the voice is allowed to roam free of the body – complete with an experimental spiritualist phone sex séance to bring the show to a head!
