Accordion Noir radio playlist 2010-08-04: Komatic Live In The Studio, Bringin’ The J Note!

AccNoir 2010-08-04


Ten years ago, we aired Accordion Noir radio episode 190, featuring a live appearance by the hot (once Victoria, then) East Vancouver(, ultimately Winnipeg) busking combo named “Komatic” after the surname of its accordionist. At its original online host, it was enjoyed some 7261 times, but you can continue enjoying it as digital audio via the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist:

Komatic is: Mack Pinchbeck on fiddle, and Blaine Komatic on accordion.
Hire them!

This episode’s cover: Sadly the boys bailed before I could get a picture of their sweet dog for our cover-thing. So, the cover for tonight is the Skull Accordion Strap hand-jiggered from a guitar-one when the old boring accordion one broke. It’s the rebirth of accordion strap fashion. A fellow at our Vancouver Squeezebox Circle did it (didn’t catch his name?) I gotta get me some. We should market them as fundraisers.

Holllly! We could make “One Less Guitar” accordion straps! That’d be sooo cool! Oh, man, this has to happen.

Thanks Komatic for the chance to have this idea!
