    Tami Neilson. New album 'KingMaker'

    Tami Neilson. New album 'KingMaker'

    “Could the King of Country Music be the daughter, not the son”
    The 5th Tami Neilson Album is called Kingmaker.
    The song Kingmaker “addresses the gatekeepers and kingmakers who hold tightly to the keys of equity and minorities in the music industry and, more largely, society as a whole.”
    It's an amazing breakthrough album for this Canadian/New Zealand singer and songwriter.
    The song Beyond the Stars is about loss and grief.  Tami lost her Father.  As Tami wrote the song, she kept hearing a duet with her father's voice. She thought the best voice on the planet should sing her Father Ron’s lyric – Willie Nelson.  Willie was fully in,  as he had just lost his sister.
    Tami moves through, blues, country, rock, and roots, with an ease that comes from years of street busking.
    As we talked via Zoom I was thrilled to tell her that she had the number 1 album on the CKUA Top 30.
     
    For a total treat,  check out the Zoom video on our TDM - YouTube Channel. (TerydavidMulligan)

    A conversation with Cheech and Chong

    A conversation with Cheech and Chong

    “Comedy is the ultimate truth. Jazz is hitting the notes that no one else would hit, and comedy is saying words that no one else would say.” ~ Tommy Chong
    “Marijuana was a new phenomenon when we started. Now it’s for everyone – doctors, lawyers, presidents.” ~ Cheech Marin
     
    I was lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time. Again.
    While I was doing rock radio in Vancouver, Richard Marin and Tommy Chong were creating comedy stand-up in a strip club. Between the strippers sets,  they would take the stage and riff for 10 minutes.  Tommys' family owned the club so they could work the stage as much as they liked.
    Things got funny.
    One night I was walking through Bacedas..a swanky 5 room club downtown and there in the comedy room were Cheech and Tommy gathering up camera gear from around the stage.
    Me - “whaddya doing guys?”
    Cheech  – “we’re recording all the bits we do  and whatever gets the most  laughs, we’re turning it  into a pitch for a stoner movie”
    Years later “Up in Smoke”  was a blockbuster, made for chump change and they were off and running.
    As Tommy says in the interview – we got so successful we broke up.
    Cheech headed into films and tv work – Tommy did one-nighters and scratched out a living.   Tommy then famously got busted for manufacturing glass bongs.  He turned his 9 months in jail into a book and a documentary.
     It wasn’t until they sat down and talked things through that Cheech and Chong returned to tours and work and fame.
    I found this interview hiding in an old file. If I happen to get my hands on the rest of the interviews, I’ll let you know.
    This was in Vancouver at the Opus Hotel during their reunion tour. First time back on stage in Vancouver in many years.
    Survivors. Going bigger and better than “the man” ever thought they would.
     
    Enjoy -

    Courtney Barnett Documentary- Anonymous Club

    Courtney Barnett Documentary- Anonymous Club

    Our guest Danny Cohen is a Melbourne-based director who has filmed and photographed some of the most interesting and influential figures in contemporary music.
    Shot on vivid 16mm film over a three-year period, ANONYMOUS CLUB chronicles notoriously shy, Melbourne-based musician Courtney Barnett’s ups and downs on the world tour for her album Tell Me How You Really Feel. Featuring Barnett’s unguarded narration from her audio diary, recorded on a dictaphone provided by filmmaker Danny Cohen, the film delivers frank and unprecedented insight into Barnett’s creative process, the sacrifices and inner conflicts set in motion by fame, and the sometimes dark backdrop to her whimsical, relatable poetic compositions.
    Based for much of her adult life in Melbourne, Courtney Barnett first found critical acclaim with 2013’s The Double EP: A Sea of Split Peas, and broke into the mainstream in 2015 with her debut album, Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit. Garnering a coveted Best New Artist Grammy nomination and numerous other accolades, the album stands as a generational classic.
    Barnett is also a powerhouse live act, playing slots at festivals including Coachella, Bonnaroo, Governor’s Ball, Primavera, and Lollapalooza. In 2021, she released Things Take Time, Take Time, a remarkable artistic step forward.
    Anonymous Club opens across Canada over the next several weeks.

    Interview with directors of Documentary Hallelujah - Leonard Cohen. A Journey - A song

    Interview with directors of Documentary Hallelujah - Leonard Cohen. A Journey - A song

    It’s not just a story of the life of Leonard Cohen.  It follows the life of his song Hallelujah.
    Leonard wrote 130-150 verses for the song. Took him years and years. Then when he released it on the album  Various Positions, his label in the USA,  Columbia Records, refused to release it.  It never got played and was forgotten…until John Cale recorded it for the tribute album I’m Your Man and it began a life of its own. Now, it's legendary.
    Started as a spiritual journey and ended, with various Leonard rewrites,  to become a secular and sexy anthem.
    Hallelujah took Leonard Cohen to audiences all over the World and into the soundtrack of “Shrek”.
    The film is released this Friday in the USA and I’ve heard it opens across Canada very shortly.
    This is smashing filmmaking and epic storytelling.
    The directors are Dan Geller and Dayna Goldfine and they are my guests on Saturdays Stew

    Like its leader,  the HUFF is wonderfully different.
