Several of us Hellbound folk moonlight as radio hosts, producers, volunteers and so on. You may already know this, and you may have had the good sense and/or good fortune to catch Gruesome Greg’s Gruesome Tunes, Craig Hayes on the New Zealand airwaves, Kevi(metal) Stewart-Panko on INDI 101, or Adam and me hosting Kill Eat Exploit the Weak on CFMU. Or this may be news to you… and if so, well, you’ve been missing out.
Last night Adam and I did some last-minute finagling and ended up in the CFMU studio with a couple of special guests: Evan Dreager (guitar/vocals) and Paul Maxwell (drums) of Hamilton raunch’n’roll five-piece Voltang.
The guys kept us company, provided some music commentary, gave us some insight into the world of a Hamilton-based DIY band, shared some of their own music, and talked about their September Tabarnak and Back tour, which wraps up this weekend with shows in Toronto (September 24 at the Bovine), Hamilton (September 25 at Club Absinthe) and Barrie (September 26).
If you missed the 12-2am broadcast, all is not lost. You can check out the show archives at cfmu.msumcmaster.ca (Programming > Kill Eat Exploit the Weak > September 23).
In the meantime, you can take a gander at the video for “Hermaphrodite,” the title track off the band’s 2015 debut album.
