This week is part 2 of our look back at 2009 as we prime ourselves for another year of amazing rock and roll here at the Rock and Roll Report Podcast. Next week I settle down and revert to my usual 10 song, 45 minute length but for this week, here is another extended shot of rock and roll fun.

The Rock and Roll Report Band of the Week are the Morning Stars

morning-stars

This week’s Band of the Week is Hamilton, Ontario’s The Morning Stars a long time favourite here at The Rock and Roll Report. Following in the path of previous rocker brothers Ray and Dave Davies, Phil and Don Everly, Liam and Noel Gallagher and Chris and Rich Robinson amongst many others. I asked Mars Ivic about this, the differences between their two CDs, touring plans and more.

RRR: Seeing as you are two brothers in the band, are you guys in the mold of every other brother band out there that seem to want to kill each other half the time? Lol
Who else is in the band?

We get along pretty well actually, but being brothers always has its ups and downs. Usually, when we feel the need to settle the score we take our aggression out on the tennis courts. Donn Dixon, our drummer, is the other member in the band.

RRR: Your new cd is definitely a departure from your 2006 release you can’t change the world. What prompted the change in musical direction?

“You Can’t Change The World” was an album that reflected a time and place in our lives. The sound of the album was very stripped down, clean and melodic. With “Radiation”, we decided to go a little more abstract, experimenting with more effects and synthesizers. Lyrically and sonically, the new album is grittier and more aggressive than the first album. It’s certainly a reflection of the times we’re living in.
