Rock Class Is Back In Session! It’s About Time For Rock and Roll Report Podcast #66!

Well it’s been a long time coming but the Rock and Roll Report podcast is back! That’s right, hold onto your hats because after a few months hiatus I am back with more rock and roll fun than you can shake a stick at. What I have decided to do is take a belated look back at 2009 in two parts which will remind you all of some of the great music played over the last 12 months and for those of you new to the podcast this will serve as an intro to what the podcast is all about. Next week will be part 2 of the 2009 review (and another 25 songs!) before I settle down and revert to my usual 10 song, 45 minute length.

I apologize for being away and I really appreciate all the comments about the podcast and the genuine good wishes (and occasional snarky remarks!) from those of you wanting to hear the podcast again.

As usual you have a wide range of styles from a wider range of bands and artists who are either unsigned or are signed to independent record labels. If you like what you hear please consider supporting these bands in a tangible way by buying their music, going to their shows and buying their merch.

It’s a Long Way to the Top – Diary of a 21st Century Rock n Roll Band: What’s Next?

Kurt Dahl leads a double life. First and foremost, he is the drummer of Saskatoon rock band One Bad Son (www.onebadson.com). Second, he is writing his Master’s of Law thesis on the future of the music industry, and how artists will continue to make money in a digital world.

The Rock and Roll Report contacted him to write a diary for his latest venture: driving to Vancouver to record new songs with Default drummer Danny Craig as producer. Below are his entries…

Monday Feb. 9th – Songs Coming Together

Guitars, drums and bass are all done on the 3 songs, and Shane is now laying vocals overtop. Danny Craig and Scott Ternen have done an AMAZING job with these songs, and they already sound wicked without a mix done…which is the true test of a good recording. For the first time in our career, our true colors are coming through on record. That is an accomplishment in itself, and we all sense it.

Saturday Feb. 7th – The Day Bob Dylan Dies

Spent the day listening to guitar takes and thinking about something: What will we do when all our music legends start to die? Will there be anyone that comes close to Dylan, Young, Townsend, Bowie, Cohen, etc? Mitch Mitchell died the other day, and I sat and wondered whether any drummers exist out there with the same rambling, melodic, jazz-on-steroids feel? Doubt it. Just like the Who were a tenth the band once Moon died.

Sunday Feb. 1st – Drums, drums, drums

My day to shine. Recording drums all day @ Greenhouse Studios in Vancouver, one of the most revered studios in the country. On the wall beside me are a bunch of signatures of those who have recorded there – I keep looking at Steven Tyler’s for inspiration.

Friday Jan. 30 – ‘Rock is Dead, Long Live Rock’

I feel like I’m the living embodiment of Pete Townsend’s immortal lyric “rock is dead they say, long live rock”. We’ve been writing and performing original rock and roll for the past 4 years, and only now do we seem to be making some real headway in the industry.

The Rock and Roll Report Band of the Week is One Bad Son

One Bad Son is an anomaly in today’s music industry. At a time when mainstream hard rock has become stale and predictable – and viewed as passé in most indie rock circles – One Bad Son has defied the norm, finding success in a niche of hard rock that is as fresh and intelligent as it is loud.

Rock and Roll Report TV: One Bad Son – Brooklyn (Live)

Here is a great band that I have played on the radio show and podcast before called One Bad Son from Saskatchewan, Canada with Brooklyn played live opening up for Godsmack. Kurt Dahl, drummer for the band recalls how it all came about:

We were hand picked by Godsmack after fans voted us down to the top 2 (out of 100 bands who applied in the province). Then Godsmack watched the top 2 videos, and picked us to open for them in front of 3000 people!

Enjoy!
