January 25, 2021

Just last week I was sharing her live version of “Lowlands” from this chance visit, to school the TikTok kids about the full potential of sea shanties, and now here it is washing up promptly as if planned in our “ten years ago” schedule!  It’s episode #213 of CFRO Co-op Radio’s weekly Accordion Noir program, for which we hosted the astounding Robyn Carrigan after she experienced a harrowing house fire!  At its original online home it accumulated some 6128 tracked listens, but you can continue enjoying it going forward at its new online home courtesy of the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist:

Accordion Noir radio playlist 2021-01-20: Shanties a’Trending?

January 20, 2021
AccNoir 2021-01-20
Home Sweet Home“, Norman Rockwell, 1923.

No one had “sea shanty revival” on their 2020 bingo card. But because the ducks and swerves of popular culture stubbornly can’t be predicted or dictated, that improbable eventuality came to pass, with “the Wellerman” taking youth video service TikTok by storm and introducing an entire generation to a musical tradition they had likely never imagined, let alone encountered, before. Meanwhile, here we are on the sidelines, observing how if the least hip thing (I can make that claim, for over a decade I fronted a band called The Creaking Planks) sits on the shelf long enough, sometimes the odometer eventually ticks over and it suddenly becomes the most hip thing. (Maybe in 2021 it’ll be the Morrismen’s turn.) “Hey Bruce,” I says, “looks like Hell has frozen over and sea shanties are trending this week. You must have a couple dozen hours of them in your audio collection, if we jump on it we just might be accidentally relevant before the bubble pops!” Which brings us to the present — always striving for relevance, but only rarely actually having the extraordinary conditions in place to make actually achieving it remotely possible. In any case, our Nautical By Nature sea shanty episode went out over the airwaves this week — if your Apple or Android podcast subscriptions (strongly recommended!) haven’t alerted you to its availability yet, you can listen to it as digital audio courtesy of the Internet Archive. Here’s its playlist:

Bonus: co-host Rowan was jumping on the shanty bandwagon (er, dinghy?) this week with his Stupid Accordion Tricks video series, foisting nautical tunes at TikTok as part of his midlife crisis. Enjoy his take on Ewan MacColl’s “The Shoals of Herring”:

Accordion Noir radio playlist 2021-01-13: So Canadian (Exceptionalism is a Problem)

January 13, 2021
AccNoir 2021-01-13

Here it is, just into a new year, and already we’re sequence-breaking and skipping directly to a homegrown celebration of all squeezy things Canadian as if it was July 1st! There are reasons we tend to visit this territory at this time of year, and I promise you: they are boring ones not worth discussing at great length. But it makes for a good show, so if your Apple or Android podcast subscriptions (strongly recommended!) haven’t alerted you to its availability yet, you can listen to this week’s episode of Accordion Noir radio as digital audio courtesy of the Internet Archive.

Accordion Noir radio playlist 2010-12-29: Kate McGarrigle Memorial

January 11, 2021

french-record-cover

This post marks our churning back up to the surface the ten-year-old episode #211 of our weekly Accordion Noir radio program, broadcasting from Vancouver’s CFRO Co-Op Community Radio.  This one acted as a more complete memorial to the late, great Kate McGarrigle, who passed on at the beginning of 2010 (and… it still feels impossible that she’s been gone for ten years now!)  At its original online home, it was enjoyed some 7904 times, and you can revisit her rich musical vein along with us courtesy of the Internet Archive.  As for everything else… I said it pretty well in the below blurb back when we first aired this recording!  Here’s the playlist and everything else.

Greetings from co-host Rowan.  As our last show of the year, I wanted to do a tribute episode to accordion players who left us in 2010, and truly there were titans: Art van Damme, Esteban Jordan, Shirley Evans, and earliest of all, Kate McGarrigle. But as Bruce noted, Art and Esteban already got entire episodes dedicated to them, while we didn’t have enough of Shirley’s work on file to do her justice. Kate McGarrigle however got a bit shortchanged in our initial response to her passing, and so she became the primary subject of our entire tribute episode.  Hats off to all of them, however, along with other renowned accordionists who may have passed on without the news of their passing reaching our ears.

* Kate & Anna McGarrigle w/ Rufus Wainwright, Emmylou Harris, Mary Black, Karen Matheson, Rod Paterson – The Trans-Atlantic Sessions – Hard Times Come Again No More (from a YouTube clip at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4YrfLnlrquo ) (1996?) … I made this the first track of the first show after she died, but couldn’t resist using it again: a fundamentally perfect arrangement of the Stephen Foster anthem.
* Kate & Anna McGarrigle – Songs of the Civil War – Better Times Are Coming (1991) … a natural complement.
* Andy Fielding – Accordion Noir theme (2010)
* Kate & Anna McGarrigle – self-titled album – (Talk to me of) Mendocino (1975)
* Kate & Anna McGarrigle – Entre Lajeunesse et la sagesse (French Record) – En Filant Ma Quenouille (1981) … also the album whose cover art produced the icon gracing this podcast’s artwork.
* Kate & Anna McGarrigle – Dancer With Bruised Knees – Perrine Etait Servante (1977)
* Rufus Wainwright w/ Kate McGarrigle – Rogue’s Gallery: Pirate Ballads, Sea Songs, and Chanteys – Lowlands Away (2006) … I’m not sure how we avoided airing this mother/son duet until now, but it’s about time we shared it.
* Martha Wainwright – Sans Fusils, Ni Souliers, Ã Paris – C’est A Hambourg (2009) … Three accordionists (including Garth Hudson!) are credited on this Piaf tribute album, but not assigned specific songs. I started with a YouTube video of Kate playing this one with her mother on the buttonbox and extrapolated that Kate may well have done similar duties on the recording. Please don’t disabuse me of this notion.
* Kate & Anna McGarrigle – I Eat Dinner (from a YouTube live performance video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xb2x9uZVPek ) … this fundamentally perfect ode to life after love comes from the 1990 album Heartbeats Accelerating, but this live version has a bit more audible squeezebox.
* Kate & Anna McGarrigle – Heartbeats Accelerating – Heartbeats Accelerating (1990)
* Kate & Anna McGarrigle – ODDiTiES – Parlez-Nous A Boire (2010)
* Kate & Anna McGarrigle – Walking Song – Dancer With Bruised Knees (1977)
* Kate & Anna McGarrigle – The McGarrigle Hour – Baltimore Fire (1998)
* Kate & Anna McGarrigle – ODDiTiES – the Log Driver’s Waltz (2010) … Not the version of the Wade Hemsworth classic many of us grew up with, but a new take on the eternal Canadian classic.
* Kate & Anna McGarrigle – Matapedia – Why Must We Die (1996)
* Kate & Anna McGarrigle – The McGarrigle Hour – Bon Voyage (1998)
* Kate & Anna McGarrigle – self-titled album – Complainte Pour Ste-Catherine (1976) … because as appropriate as I felt the dramatic arc of the previous couple of songs was, I wanted to end on a high note.

We host a monthly squeezebox circle … about which you can find further information at http://www.squeezeboxcircle.org

You can also reach us and find out more about our featured performers AND listeners by joining the Accordion Noir fans group on Facebook or visiting our profile on Myspace [Ed, 2020: OK, you can probably safely skip the MySpace visit.]

Accordion Noir radio playlist 2021-01-06: OK, 2020, Now What?

January 7, 2021
AccNoir 2021-01-06
“Hell To / Heavens To”, Miss Murgatroid, 1992.

Having been distracted for some reason, at 8 PM tonight Bruce thought it was Tuesday and hadn’t recorded tonight’s 10 PM episode. He was personally startled by the otherwise everyday Washington Post headline:

“President Trump incites his supporters at a rally Wednesday to march on the Capitol…”
https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2021/01/06/domestic-terrorist/

That added a bit of 2020 to tonight’s thrown-together “looking back on 2020” episode. (This year started in 2016 and hasn’t ended yet.)

Despite everything else going on, I am given to understand that Bruce was able to leap into action at the last minute and make of last night’s CFRO Accordion Noir broadcast his favorites-released-in-2020 episode.  If your Apple or Android podcast subscriptions (strongly recommended!) haven’t alerted you to its availability yet, you can enjoy listening to it as digital audio courtesy of the Internet Archive.

Accordion Noir radio playlist 2010-12-15: Bruce’s best of 2010

January 4, 2021

my kids mom

We’re a little out of synch, because I think we had a few extra episodes in Dec 2010, but in the long run we will catch up and even out.  Here we go: all right, friends, you made it through Rowan’s favorite songs aired in 2010, and now it’s your turn to enjoy Bruce’s contrarian response: here in episode #209 of CFRO Co-op Radio’s weekly hour-long Accordion Noir radio program from ten years ago, your regular host Bruce Triggs gives a more focused year-in-review program, sharing with you his favorite accordion songs from albums released in that year.  At its original online home, it boasted a total of 4569 listens, and you can enjoy listening to it as digital audio courtesy of the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist:

Accordion Noir radio playlist 2010-12-08: Best Live Acts on Accordion Noir 2010

December 28, 2020

why us

Here it is, folks, from ten years ago… episode #208 of CFRO Co-op Radio’s weekly hour-long Accordion Noir radio program, playing only the nuttiest and most esoteric squeezebox music to ever adorn the airwaves!  A good demonstration of our December festivities in our early years — we would (in pre-Pandemic times, if you can believe such a thing) have guests perform live at the radio station from time to time, and at the end of the year cut their performances — which if not for our program would never even exist! — into a bootleg mix tape of sorts, splicing together a highlights reel of all the best of the live cuts we had hosted in that calendar year.  It’s a fun way of going about doing things, and I hope we can return to it when everything settles down.  Anyhow, at its original online home, it clocked some 6147 listens, and you can continue enjoying it as vintage digital audio into the indefinite future courtesy of the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist:

AccNoir-2010-12-08, Best Live Acts on Accordion Noir 2010

* Artist – Song – Album (year) – Where are they from? – Contact info if we’ve got it.
