The Underground Sound with Meri St. Mary

Date 23 April 2014

Listen in as Meri St. Mary talks with Keith Levene: founding member of The Clash & The Flowers of Romance (w/pre Sex Pistols Sid Vicious) but most notably for his legendary guitar work (& co founder) in the groundbreaking Public Image Limited AKA PiL with John Lydon, Jah Wobble & Martin Atkins.
PiL put out 3 records together as well as live shows from 1978-1983 that inspired a whole generation & beyond. Keith's humor & intelligence shine through in this phone interview from his hometown of London where he is surrounded by close family, artists, teachers, books & his studio while focusing predominately on the current crowd funding project on Indiegogo for what was to be PiL's 4th album Commercial Zone 2014. He has some great stories about the final recording in NYC the "this is what you didn't want, but what you got" fiasco, wonderful quotes with regards to
"doing things that DON'T SUCK",
wisdom of this getting older business, the Veleno guitar guy story & as a self taught multi-instrumentalist (& true spirit of punk) the great line: "who cares - it's metal, I'm getting it". There are loads of cool perks to getting involved in The CZ2014 Campaign so check it out, get involved & have some fun with it as Keith prepares to deliver the purest vision w/original &  proper PiL ethos, an unfinished business that has to be done & he is the one to do it....not so much to set the record straight but to get the right record out 30 years later with as many years of composition. As Keith explains:
"PiL was my Purpose In Life, but at the end of the day, what else do you have but your principles?" So get on the Indiegogo tip & support The CZ2014 Campaign while you can....the clock is ticking & as soon as the campaign is done, Keith can get back to composing........he's a lucky guy & so are we to have him share his vision: music, art & words with us all……now go check out CZ2014 & get out of it what you put into it!!!!!

An Evening with the Moore Brothers • Hours 1 & 2

Date 16 March 2013


An Evening with the Moore Brothers

From their first record Colossal Small in 2001, through their stellar fifth release Aptos in 2009, these unique brothers continue to perform for an ever increasing following in the California Bay Area. At first glance their influences appear to come from 1960s folk music, reminiscent of Simon & Garfunkel. But upon further listening it becomes ever so clear that these two minds & voices are woven from a much broader, albeit highly eccentric knit that borrows more from the surrealist movement, than the folk/pop overtones that appear at first listen. Join host Mikail Graham for a live in-studio interview along with a preview of their latest 2013 release California Sister.

Date 9 November 2012

Listen in as Meri St. Mary talks with local punk band THE DEVILS TRAIN for their debut on KVMR. We hear for the first time their upcoming 3 song release “Bloody Candyland” as well as live in studio performance (on an acoustic tip) of some of their other live material. All members: Akasha Hepcat, Alex Bone Daddy Scribs, Johnny K, Jamison Jamo (aka Slick Simmons) & Jo Jo Dinkenstein are from Grass Valley/Nevada City & play regularly in town on diverse bills bringing their “jazz punk from hell” music along with compelling & enthusiastic live performances. THE DEVILS TRAIN are a young band with their own style & are clearly into what they are doing & have that chemistry one longs for when seeing live shows. They are fun & down to earth as they talk about how they got together, what keeps them going as well as their strive for originality in a small town that has supported them with a loyal following of all ages & types who feed off the energy THE DEVILS TRAIN emits ( yeah mosh pits ensue) seemingly effortlessly so the songs & visuals stick in your brain long after you’ve experienced them live. This hour is a fun time for all so if you don’t want to just shut up & watch yer TV, git yer demon inside on & dig the swampy grooves & passionate/provocative vocals from THE DEVILS TRAIN: this is one ride you’ll want to take whether you’re showered in sin or pondering the inevitable rebirth of the soul, a new kinda soul train! Git on the devils train, stay on after every stop & ride bitches, ride.
