  1. Episode 141, Oren Ambarchi — 5049 Records

    Based in Sydney, Australia, Oren Ambarchi is a gifted composer, multi-instrumentalist and improviser who has been traveling the world, crafting a most singular musical vision for the past twenty five years. He’s also an enthusiastic listener and avid record collector, a gourmand and happens to be one of my favorite musicians around. On a quick visit to New York for performances with Alvin Lucier and Loren Connors, Oren dropped by for a candid conversation about his early days as an Hasidic student in NYC, record collecting, learning to play guitar, running his own record label and a whole lot more. I love Oren’s music deeply and am delighted conversation got to happen. After our talk, Oren and I headed over to Russ & Daughters Cafe and gorged on smoked fish and chopped liver.

  3. Ep. #35: Thurston Moore | Kreative Kontrol

    Thurston Moore is one of America’s most influential and notable musicians, best known for playing guitar, writing songs, and singing in New York City’s Sonic Youth. Since that band formed in 1981, Moore has taken on countless other musical projects, collaborated with many, many artists in different contexts, and started his own label, Ecstatic Peace! Well before Sonic Youth went on hiatus in 2011, Moore began working with a new group of players and eventually formed a band with them called Chelsea Light Moving, who released their self-titled debut LP earlier this year on Matador Records. Chelsea Light Moving’s current tour brings them to Hamilton’s Supercrawl on Sept. 14, Toronto’s Horseshoe Tavern on Sept. 15, and Montreal’s Cabaret Mile End on Sept. 16. Moore was in the midst of a 10-hour drive when we talked about the Station to Station public art project, Levi’s jeans, his early band the Coachmen, playing with Yoko Ono and eating dinner with Philip Glass, teaching himself how to operate a guitar, the attraction of subversion, confusion and nostalgia in youth culture, the shock of short hair in the 70s, Iggy Pop, Girls and the new bohemianism, living in London and its culinary renaissance, the formation of Sonic Youth compared to starting Chelsea Light Moving, poetry and writing, his thoughts on Lee Ranaldo and the Dust and Body/Head, his future work and collaborations, David Berman’s poetry, the Nihilist Spasm Band, Perfect Youth: The Birth of Canadian Punk, the song “Alighted,” and more.

  5. Ep. #279: U.S. Girls | Kreative Kontrol

    U.S. Girls is the moniker of Meghan Remy who currently calls Toronto, Ontario home. Since moving there from Chicago in 2010, Remy has become a vital part of the city’s music scene and, along with her husband Slim Twig, plays in the excellent band Darlene Shrugg and runs the Calico Corp. label. She is likely best known for her stunning voice, pointed perspective, and startlingly great post-pop work as U.S. Girls, including her acclaimed and most recent album, Half Free, which is on the 2016 Polaris Music Prize short list and out now via 4AD Records. Remy and I recently caught up at Jules’ Café in Toronto’s Kingsway neighbourhood to discuss Jules Café and its wifi and its delectable croissants, just barely Etobicoke, Boxing Day 2010, Chicago and Toronto, Americans thinking about Canada and the rest of the world, facts and fiction and trust, not necessarily the news, overwhelmed by the world, free but only to consume, leaving America and loving Canada, military madness and taxes, health care, because Britain stayed and Canadian reserve, nice not friendly, Canada’s British accent, we’re smart, Toronto’s ahistorical aesthetic, many cranes in the sky, Chicago is grand, it’s hard to be America’s hat, grants and being driven to achieve, gross generalizations, the music media and scams, the regurgitated one sheet, disengaging, anti-intellectualism, being in a military family, John Cassavetes and Bruce Springsteen, cinéma vérité, Springsteen’s rise as an American superstar as he was criticizing America, Springsteen’s empathy and socially conscious gestures, her song “Damn That Valley,” why Meg doesn’t ever vote, the 2000 election and Ralph Nader and Bernie Sanders, the Democratic Party doesn’t really get it, anti-war, the shades of evil, Hillary Clinton and women, revolution and protest and duty, social media’s distracting nature, the internet is everything but still new, MySpace as a touring resource, Silver Apples and Suicide and the Shaggs, the two-piece, when Springsteen covered “Dream Baby Dream,” the Devils & Dust tour, radio on, the Beatles Anthology, Bikini Kill, dealing with male music biz crap as a woman, sound people are cranky, frustrated musicians, the average white American woman, “First World Blues,” problematic self-esteem issues in a digital age, the requisite weirdness of receiving a Polaris Music Prize nomination, the infrastructure and its usual suspects, Darlene Shrugg is the best band and a record is almost done, Simone TB and Tropics, Ice Cream, word of mouth, the new U.S. Girls record with the Cosmic Range, Onakabazien, playing live at the Polaris gala on September 19, the song “Window Shades,” Gloria Ann Taylor, and then I got a croissant.

  6. Ep. #19: Ian F. Svenonius | Kreative Kontrol

    Ian F. Svenonius is one of underground culture’s most provocative singers and thinkers. From leading impassioned Washington D.C. bands like Nation of Ulysses and the Make-Up, writing books like The Psychic Soviet, and serving as the host of the revealing interview show, Soft Focus, Svenonius has left an indelible mark on music, influencing the way many people contemplate and consume it. Late last year, Akashic Books published Svenonius’ faux how-to guide, Super-Natural Strategies for Making a Rock ‘n’ Roll Group and that same year, his band Chain & The Gang released a great album called In Cool Blood, which is available via K Records. Chain & The Gang are performing at SappyFest in Sackville, NB between Aug 2 and 4. Ian and I talk about these things plus music festival culture, band reunions, and more.

  7. Ep. #175: Sir Richard Bishop | Kreative Kontrol

    Sir Richard Bishop is a tremendous and well-respected guitarist based in the state of Oregon. For close to 30 years, Bishop was a member of the renowned rock band Sun City Girls but in 1998, John Fahey’s Revenant Records released Salvador Kali, Bishop’s first solo album. By now, various labels have gotten behind 11 Sir Richard Bishop records, including his lovely new LP, Tangier Sessions, which is out now via Drag City. He will be touring extensively throughout the United States in March and April, but he kicks off this trip in Vancouver at the Fox Cabaret on March 26. Here, Richard and I discuss leaving Seattle for Portland, Doug Horne in Guelph, a very special small parlour guitar from Geneva, spending time recording this new record in Tangier, improvised inspiration, classical creeps in, being a self-taught musician, collaborating with musicians who know theory, getting into guitar as a kid, discovering punk and the emergence of Sun City Girls, getting attention through tension, potentially playing music with his brother again, opening for people like Bill Callahan and Will Oldham, conveying humour live, living a viable life, working with Drag City among other labels, the forthcoming Rangda record, the blues-y piece “Mirage” and then we let it come down.

  8. Ep. #178: Shary Boyle | Kreative Kontrol

    Shary Boyle is a tremendously gifted and world-renowned Canadian visual artist who calls Toronto home. While it isn’t easy to describe the full breadth of her work, it’s fair to say she has spent a great deal of time exploring the figure, inspired by her concerns about and interest in class and gender injustice. She has examined a range of psychological and emotional states via sculpture, drawing, painting, installation, performance, and handmade craft to create a singular body of work. Boyle represented Canada with her project Music for Silence at the 55th Venice Biennale in 2013 and on Saturday April 11 between 2:00 and 5:00 PM at Boarding House Arts / Capacity 3 Gallery (6 Dublin St. N), in Guelph, Kazoo! Fest is holding a reception for Boyle’s film, Silent Dedication. Here Shary and I discuss yoga, the Venice Biennale, international recognition for a Canadian artist, growing up in Scarborough, discovering hardcore punk, originality, music and art, making money, why art is not valued highly enough in Canada, Music for Silence and The Silent Dedication, Christine Fellows and her song “Credo, White Silence,” and that was it.
