Edinburgh Man #171

June 26th, 2014

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)

I should have recorded this podcast on a tram shouldn’t I? I missed a trick there. Unfortunately the thought didn’t occur to me until halfway through the podcast. Never mind.

There were some grumblings from various sources about last week’s (early morning) podcast that seemed to suggest it contained a bit too much rambling and uninteresting chat. So this week I try desperately not to talk as much… and to play more music. I don’t think it really worked out that way though. I’m sure I probably talked as much as normal. I think we may just have to face the fact that it’s a physical impossibility for me not to ramble at length about nothing in particular. I’m so very sorry.

Last night I realised that tonight is the launch gig for the Bastard Mountain album. Oh, and tomorrow night it’s Moon Hop with Withered Hand and Meursault amongst others. So basically I could either wait until the weekend or do the podcast earlier. And when I say early I mean early. It’s a morning podcast this week on Edinburgh Man, recorded at 9.30am. Of course, thanks to Edinburgh Man Junior I was awake at 4.50am. So this is like lunchtime for me. That said, I’m going to need to coffee to kick start this one.
