Ten Songs Podcast #26

After a couple of shows with a lot of Aussie bands, here’s one full of Canadian Content. I spent a year in Canada back in 2007/08 and saw some great shows. So when I spotted the City Limits: Down & Out in Toronto and Montreal comp on the No Idea website, I was pretty excited. There’s a set from that record as well as a set of tracks chosen by my friend Suie from Toronto. Suie helped look out for us when we first visited Toronto and totally made leaving the UK a lot easier. She’s also a rad vegan cook with two awesome books published by PM press full of recepies for amzing vegan desserts, Lickin` The Beaters: Low Fat Vegan Desserts and Lickin` The Beaters 2: Vegan Chocolate and Candy.

Notes:1. These podcasts were put together on a notepad PC using Audacity, some MP3’s and a shitty headset internet microphone. Professional I am not. Plus this MP3 is a lower bit rate than most in order to keep it at a manageable size. So if there’s a song on here that you dig and want to buy the record it came off, don't be put off if it sounds kinda rough or scuzzy. I can guarantee it'll sound better in the original format.
2. Where possible I got permission from either the bands or labels before putting this show together. It’s polite innit. Thanks to everyone who was kind enough to let us play a track from a record they released or by a band they played in. It’s well appreciated.
3. It goes without saying that if you like this podcast, let your friends know about it! Please? Thank you. And get in touch too if you dig it/hate it/have any tips. tensongspodcast [at] googlemail [dot] com or leave a comment.
