Sweet Static

Yes, another mp3 blog. Trying to share what I like with the world. The music here is for sampling only and are up for a limited time. It's simple really you see. If you like the music then go out and support the artists. Buy a cd/mp3/eight track, make a request on radio, see them live, tell others about it. This way this wonderful medium hopefully won't be stomped on.

Location: Windsor, Ont, Canada

Sweet Static is an mp3 blog that allows me to share the music I love and also to point out other cool things around the internet that catch my attention. It is also a place where I can talk about my radio show by the same name, now on Thursday nights from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm on CJAM 91.5 FM in Windsor, Ontario. Got something I should hear? Email me at sweetstatic @ gmail.com. All comments left here are emailed to my inbox, so you can get a hold of me that way also. You can also follow the show/me on twitter at sweetstaticcjam.

Sweet Static Grand Slam-Geoff Berner

Time for a brand new feauture for Sweet Static. Back a few years ago I used to do a 'zine called These Are Rotten Apples. The main feature was called "6 Questions With..." where I would ask six stupid/weird/unusual questions. The reason would be so that the artist would have something different to answer instead of the usual stuff. Also it's way easier to write down the answers to these types of questions since they are usually short and that's good especially when you're normally in a bar.

Anyway I have decided to bring back the idea but to modify it a bit. So now it will be known as the Sweet Static Grand Slam. Why the Grand Slam? Well I've shortened it to four questions and that was the only thing I could think of to do with the number four.

So last night I had the pleasure of seeing Geoff Berner and Wax Mannequin at the Phog Lounge here in Windsor. I met Geoff the last time he was in town and he's a great guy with a lot of great stories to tell.

He's been tourning his last album, The Whiskey Rabbi, for close to a couple of years now and in October is planning to start work on a new record, which is to be released on Jericho Beach Music. Right now he's in the middle of a tour across Canada to promote his new booklet, "How To Be An Accordion Player" before heading back over to Europe to tour with Kaizers Orchestra

So with that here is the first edition of the Sweet Static Grand Slam with Geoff Berner.

1-Who is your favorite Muppet?


2-What is your favorite band or artist that no one knows about?

Carmaig de Forest

3-The shot (alcohol) that you hate to do.

The sixth shot.

4-Name three songs you'd put on a mix tape for a significant other.

1-"Cupid"-Sam Cooke
2-"Greetings To The New Brunette"-Billy Bragg
3-"Let's Get Lost"

Here are a couple of recommended songs you can download from Geoff's website. There are a total of six songs you can download here.

Geoff Berner-"Clown and Bard"
Geoff Berner-"Lucky Goddamn Jew"

Also found the video for "Greetings To The New Brunette" on You Tube, so enjoy.

Lastly B(oot)log had a post with a live track from a show of his from January in Kingston.
