Tune In! Cjam Fm-->CJAM.CA/99.1FM Windsor-Detroit Today (2:30pm-4:00pm) & Hear A Spotlight On Toronto's Make MeYoung. We'll be talking with the band's Singer/Songwriter/Guitarist Jay Merrow.

Some Words From A Recent Article I Wrote For WAMM Magazine's 'The Windsor Scene':

Start the month off right with Toronto
’s Make Me Young, whose members include Amherstburg natives Jay Merrow and Patrick Greenaway. The band returns to The Phog Lounge with their self-titled debut full-length offering on Saturday, February 6th. Make Me Young are difficult to describe: with three vocalists and a seemingly endless melange of styles, from punk to pop, experimental, rock, folk and more, this is an act that cannot be pegged down. Their song ‘The Nihilist’ is full of punky, thrashy wildness, followed up by ‘The Receptionist’ which could be described as the best Metric song that Metric never wrote, performed or even dreamed of. Interesting lyrics, inspired rhythms, innovative songwriting, we can’t say enough good things about Make Me Young here at the Windsor Scene. Joining them on stage is Amherstburg’s synth-punk four piece Muzzin who always bring a fun and energetic live performance and have been for years. Not a show to be missed.

The Hiatus Is Back Off Again.

So.... I SUCK at blogging and have not lived up to my goals for this blog at all. My shit is weak and I'm sorry... Good thing only an approximate 56 people have visited the site anyways.... I'm not going to make any excuses besides the one I've already given (M.E.-->Sucking) But I will tell you that I'm trying to change. Starting today, I am actually, really, totally give this blogging thing the attention it deserves. 1.3 posts a day.... 40 posts a month.... 480 posts one year from today. Wish me luck?

Paylist: Productive Confusion - 10/13/2008

Started off today's show with some Miwa Gemini today, she played at The Phog Lounge here in Windsor last week. What a great performer, she captivated the small Tuesday night crowd with her bluesy, folky sounds. This talent from Brooklyn and of japanese descent is one to watch out for. You'll notice today's show has a lot of bands who just have or will be playing in the area soon. I'm trying to make up for the fact I put out zero post last week. Yikes! I owe this blog like 7 posts... soon my friends... soon.
