Edinburgh Man #173

July 10th, 2014

I’m still under the weather this week, but like the trouper that I am I’ve done gone and made one of these podcast shows for you, albeit with a bit less chat than normal.

I couldn’t resist putting that picture up there. I know that it’s two weeks in a row a train themed image has been used for the podcast artwork, but last weekend we took Edinburgh Man Junior to the steam railway at Bo’ness. I was rather sceptical but it was actually a great day out – even if the steam train was broken. Instead there was this great old British Rail diesel train which took me back to my formative years when we had a nationalised rail service in the UK. Ah, the 70′s.

In music news, Edinburgh’s Meursault will soon be no more. Sob. Hence we start today’s show not with rambling by your good host, but their wonderful “One Day This’ll All Be Fields”.

The podcast is back on home turf this week after a couple of weeks in Toronto. And guess what? It’s not a live one. For a number of reasons. Firstly I’m a wee bit ill, in some pain, and doped up on antibiotics which seem to be affecting my stomach in undesirable ways. You didn’t need to know that, did you? Also Edinburgh Man Junior is undergoing some “sleep training” which sounds far more regimented that the pandemonium that actually ensues come bedtime. There’s a technological issue – basically wires have become misplaced. And then there’s laziness. I’ll leave it up to you to decide the primary cause.

Anyway, because of general uncomfortableness it really is a “less chat that normal” podcast. Honest. That guy from a few weeks back who asked if I normally talked that much on the show will be well happy.

The second of two podcasts recorded in Toronto, featuring an all Torontonian playlist, and more rambling chat from the palatial waterfront Airbnb condo that is the Edinburgh Man family home for the last two weeks.

Edinburgh Man Junior is improving, and we even managed to do touristy things for the last few days. We went up the CN Tower and Edinburgh Man Junior was fascinated by the glass floor. Something that most of the adult visitors seemed to be a bit freaked out about. Or maybe they were just freaked about by his Chickenpox scabs. Don’t worry – we did get the okay from a Doctor that he was no longer contagious.

Greetings from sunny Toronto! It’s actually been really sunny. Despite the fact that nearly every day the weather has said that it’s going to rain. Perhaps these Ontarians are a pessimistic bunch? If only this really mattered – most of the time has been spent indoors looking after a sick Edinburgh Man Junior.

In terms of this week’s music it’s all from Toronto bands or artists, and it’s a rather eclectic mix too. All recorded in a palatial waterfront condo (actually, and Airbnb apartment – but it’s pretty nice).

1. Teenage Kicks – “All Your Punk Songs” (Played courtesy of Teenage Kicks, Released under a Creative Commons licence)
2. Royal Creatures – “Jarvis Lanes” (Played courtesy of Royal Creatures, Released under a Creative Commons licence)
3. Pale Eyes – “Waves and Radiation” (Played courtesy of Pale Eyes, Released under a Creative Commons licence)
4. The J. Arthur Keenes Band – “Some Nerve” (Played courtesy of The J. Arthur Keenes Band, Released under a Creative Commons licence)
5. LIPP – “Prepare to be Amazed” (Played courtesy of LIPP, Released under a Creative Commons licence)
6. Fox Moulder – “Pine” (Played courtesy of Fox Moulder, Released under a Creative Commons licence)
